Ymir, Deo. 22.—The report of
* he sale of the Dundee mine hen
is confirmed. A syndicate headed
by C.W. Rand, of New Westminster, has taken over the property
from the Royal Bank of Canada,
whioh institution, since the foreclosure of its mortgage in September last, has been in sole possession
ol the property. The sum of
$5000 has already been paid over
to bind the deal, and the balance
will be put up shortly.
Mr. Rand, who put the deal
through, is well known in financial circles, being heavily interested in the Athabasca and other
mines, whilst it was also he who
arranged the former deal on the
Dundee by which Messrs. Morrison
Marshall & Company, of London,
secured the property for a consideration of $500,000, a deal which
failed to consummate at the last
moment only, in consequence of
outbreak of the Boer war.
In the present instance most of
the funds are being put up by well
known eastern Canadian firms, and
the financial backing of the syndicate is ample to put the mine on itl
proper footing as a large produoer.

THE   LIGHTING FRANCHISE
When   the cities of Nelson and
Rossland  were first incorporated,
the   city   of   Rossland   Lad somewhat  the  better  standing of the
two.   At the present day Nelson, it
no use blinking the facts, has tbe
advantage of Rossland.   Yet Rossland has far the  biggest and most
permanent payroll, and is destined
to be far the larger city. The -temporary advantage secured, whioh temporary advantage is none the less
real, is because oi the better financial methods of   Nelson  and  for
this Nelson has Houston to tha n k
and loyally Nelson   has' stood to
Houston in  recognition.   There ib
no wish here to rake up uselessly
old scores and grudges, yet after
all the best  foresight is possessed
by he who has the best backsight
Hence the value of looking back
and profiting by experience.  Rossland went ahead and spent huge
sums in grading, for instance the
bluff on Columbia avenue, and on
other matters which have been nonproductive of revenue.   On productive   expenditures   Rossland  has
been too eoonomical, thus putting
the cart before the horse. Expendi
tures which would have brought in
a revenue would have justified expenditures which gave no direct
return.     Hence  the difficulty of
disposing  of   bonds  for purposes
whioh show no security to the lend
er.   The true course for Rossland
to pursue is to alter this financial
policy.    There is an opportunity
just now of recovering the lighting
franchise.     It   should be done if
possible.   It is said  that the city
oannot secure the money. Rossland
has never tried to dispose of bonds
for productive, direotly productive,
purposes.   The sucoess achieved by
the camp in its management of the
water system, a success for which
it has to thank the present head of
that system, and not any mayor or
chairman of Board or Works, will
go far in lessening the labor of procuring the money. But, it is stated,
that if the oity gives notice of its
intention of resuming the franchise
for lighting,  and is  not  able  to
carry out the purchase it will be
liable to a suit for damages at the
hands of the present owners of the
franchise.   That may be true, but
damage will have, to  be  shown.
Now, if the  holders have not to
part with their  franchise they will
certainly   suffer no damage.   On
the contrary they reap an advantage.    Hence   a suit for damages
would in all  probability result in
the bringer being heavily mulcted
in coals.   Besides if the city does
not take up the franchise itself, it
can lease it to the same or a third
party on   far   more advantageous
terms.   The notice therefore should
be   given.     Alderman   Daniel on
Ootober   28 last gave   notice  of
his intention of introducing a resolution on November 4, giving formal notice to the Lighting Company.
It has not been done.   It has been
in order to do it for any Tuesday
THK YELLOW PERIL.
Some time ago somebody said, we
think it was Lord Wolseley, that
the day the Chinese were federated
under one Btrong hand, that day
would be let loose upon the civilized
world a veritable yellow deluge.
Events in the Far East are shaping
themselves curiously. War between
Russia and Japan is daily neaier
Many thinkers are of the opinion
that the casus belli will be Korea
but it will rather be China. China
reminds one of the doe waiting to
be claimed by the viotor of the
two belligerent stags. China for
ages has had a contempt of Japan
more or less merited then, more or
loss merited now. China for the
past hundred years has had e
growing respect for Russia. Accord
ing to the turn of the tide in either's
favor, will be found the might of
China displayed. But China must
either be Russianized or Japoni-
cised. The vis inertia of her statesmen cannot be overcome by any
Chinese source. The force of reform must be applied from without. But when it is supplied, and
supplied successfully, a nation
whose citizens are frugal, commercially honest without peer, whose
women are notably the most virtuous in the East, the personal bravery of whioh people has been attested by more than one soldier,
must go far. And it is a nation
that is numbered by the hundreds
of millions, not by the tens. It is
therefore something to whioh the
Western nations must pay atten
tion, whether that huge force is to
be directed by Russia or by Japan,
and perhaps then, having duly re'
fleoted what this means, those up-
to-date statesmen who accused the
Marquess of Salisbury of being a
faineant, will perhaps begin to
have a glimmer why tbat plaoid
Englishman dreamily undertook a
treaty with Japan several years
ago—when all the world was asleep
but the Marquess.
NOTE AND COMMENT.
The Nelson Tribune is nothing
if not original. It declares the
Rossland Would is the organ of the
organ of the"Joly McBrideites" in
Rossland. The Would denies the
soft impeachment. We were onoe
politioal bed fellows, according to
the same Tribune, with Curtis and
Kirby, (strange pair todraw.too) but
we must have had a falling out. Tbe
Would is ready to back any measure by any party whioh is for the
publio good, especially if that good
be Rossland's. We will oheerfully
admit that Kirby is right over the
two per cent tax, although we
don't want to go to bed with him.
We are also prepared to Bay nice
things of John Houston, for his
amendments to the Municipal Act,
but the Wokld would not like to
go bed with him either. If Rosb-
landjcannot get anything out of McBride the Rossland Would will not
have much to say about his gen
eroBity to this oamp. But give the
poor man a chance.

'Whence did I come?' she an'
swered, with the pretty reflection
of a smile upon her face. 'Out of
the storm, 0 son of Anakl—out of
the wild, wet night wind!'
'And why, and why— to my inmost soul, and then to leave me?'
'Phoenician,' she said, 'I bave

have been the unseen oompanion ol
of your goings—I have been the
shadowless watcher by your Bleep.
Mine was the untelt hand tbat bore
your chin up when you swam with
the Christian slave girl—mine
was the arm that has turned, invisibly, a hundred javelins from
you—and tonight I am oome, by
leave of circumstance, thus to see
you.'
'I should have thought,' I said,
becoming now better at my ease,
'that one like you might oome or
go in scorn of oiroumstanoe.'

necessities to the very verge of tbe
spheres.'
But when I questioned what
there were, asking the secret of her
wayward visits, she looked at the
Bleeping Editha, and said I oould
not understand.
'Yes by Wodin's selfl but I
think I oan. Yon fair cheeked
girl helps you. There are a hundred turns and touches in your
ways and manners that speak of
her, and show whence you got

'You are astute, my Saxon

'Then, if you can do thie, how
was it, Blodwen, you never oome

'In truth, I often tried,' she said,
with something like a sigh, 'but

subtle needs, and the other one,
Eleotra, was all beyond me. And

herself into an attitude, and there

the very semblance of Eleotra as I

'Yea,' said Blodwen, resuming
her own form with perfect calmness before I, astounded, could

Merchants of tha Camp ara Rlalngte
th* Occasion.
For the past couple of months
business has been gradually improving in the oamp and merchants encouraged by this have
imported an unusually heavy supply of Christmas wares. Yet a
visit today to some of our leading
stores elicited the reply that this
consignment had already been
greatly denuded along several
lines, Christmas buying being a
great improvement on thiB time
laBt year and Christmas sales, said
more than one, beginning earlier
than usual.
And this is noticeable in the decorations as woll aB in the stock
carried. Hunter Bros, especially
being noteworthy in this regard
having their store most tastefully
dressed, the windows being quite
worthy of a larger oity. It is quite
worth while paying a visit to their
plaoe of business if only to congratulate the decorator for his
artistic ability.
Morrow's drug store has an especial line of Christmas presents
for which he is finding a ready
soale as the buyer seem to have
nioely hit the taste of the RosBland
people. Ex-Mayor Goodeve remarked on a visit to his plaoe of
business, whioh has recently been
doubled in size and whioh is now
one of the pleasanteet stores in the
oamp, that business was never
better,that the tide waB rising and
his takinp were improving daily.

Mackenzie and Mann Coming Out Top of the
Heap.
Toronto, Deo. 22.—The Northern
Consolidated Holding company
with capital of 18,000.000 has just
been chartered by the Ontario gov,
ernment. It has been formed in
connection with the transfer of the
controlling interest of the Great
Northern railroad of Canado, and
subsidiary roads to Mackenzie &
Mann.
It will take the securities of the
Great Northern of Canada,Chateau-
guay and Northern railroad, and
Montfort and Garneau Colonization Railway. In the new oompany
the shareholders are Mackenzie &
Mann, who have paid oash for their
interest to the former holders on
une side, and the directors and
shareholders of the Great Northern
who, it is believed, still retain a
large interest in the company on
the other.
The Great Northern Railway of
Canada is now operated as part of
the Canada Northern system form,
ing tbe connecting link between the
Csnada Atlantio and Quebeo, and
thus affording an outlet at the seaboard for the company's western

f I Winnipeg, Deo. 22.—The police
still have .nothing definite ln the
Cashel case, although working on
various clues. Thie afternoon it
was reported that Caehel's body
was found in a well three miles
weBt of the oity.
Thc men from the barracks went
to Sandy McDonald's ranch, only
to find that the body in the well
was that of George Bacon, a young
man who worked on the ranoh. It
took a great amount of time to
raise tbe body as the well is 100
feet deep.
It is believed that Bacon slipped
into the well while drawing water
with a bucket. The coroner is investigating.

delay of Canadian Pacific's north'
ern steamer Amur, honrly expected
here during a weeek past, is a mystery no longer.
She had been coquetting with a
reef, just outside of Port Simpson,
while trying to make that plaoe in
a dense fog, and is now tied up a
hopeless oripple at the Port Simp-
eon wharf, a number of plates
ripped off her plates ripped off and
her tail shaft broken.
Thirty-three of her fifty-five passengers have been brought down
by tbe Farallon. The others await
