REGIMENT FOR   INDIA
Idea Underlying Proposal
of the Imperial War
Office.
Ottawa, Deo. 29.—Sir Fredrick
Borden, interviewed this morning
regarding the oable report of
Canadian regiment being sent to
India, said that a suggestion of the
kind had been put forward by Mr.
Arnold-Forster, Seoretary for War.
His idea was the recruiting of a
egiment in  Canada   to serve in
New York, Dec. 29.—Daniel J.
Snlley, who has during the past
few years, made over ten million
dollars in cotton futures, raised
the prioe of cotton yesterday to 14
cents, whioh is higher than it haB
been in over 25 years. This has
dosed a great many cotton mills in
this country, and also in the Old
Country.
He is also raising a fund among
the cotton spinners of the United
States to influence people to accept
these higher prices as a normal result of demand rather than the
work of a truet.
The immediate result upon the
London market has been to force
cotton manufacturers into more
than a languid support ol those
who have been urging the Imperial
government lo grant heavy subsidies to the ootton growers of West
Afrioa, in order to have them oom
pete with the Southern States of
the Union.
Another  souroe   of   supply   is
I likely      to    be     North     China
j where the  laok of hydraulio maohinery for pressing has heretofore
largely militated against a larger
market for the cotton grown there.
Tokio. Deo. 29.—The Jspsceet
government has been ol. '.bed by
the Diet with praotioaUy unlimited
powers in oase of war. Tt ia empowered t take what steps it will
for military defenoe. Aud that
military defence is left opeu ta all
kinds of construction. Minor aota
whioh further amplify those extensive powers relating to the creation
of a VVr.r Council at the pleasure of
the ministry, a reorganization of
the Army Offioe'and a bringing of
the Korean railway more directly
under the superintendence of
Tokio have also been passed.
It is regarded here that these
steps, while not directly indicating
a failure of all negotiations with
Russia oertainly point in that direction and the absolute power
granted the government is thought
to be a presage ot the imminence of
war.
Aooording to the London Chronicle, the Japanese government outbid the Russian government and
actually purchased the warships
Moreno and Rivadavia, both of
which are now nearing completion
at Genoa.
Another London paper prints a
report that the Japanese ministerial counoil has deoided to transfer $25,000,000 from the education
fund for emergency purposes.

THK CIVIC ADMINISTRATION
It is  the unexpected that hap
pens.   It seemed likely enough not
many weeks since that the contest
for the mayoralty for the coming
year would lie between the present
incumbent of the office and   his
finance     chairman.       Now    tbe
latter has   definitely  declared that
he is not a candidate for office, and
has done so unequivocably.   The
Would is also assured by a man
who really should know, even if he
does not.that Mayor Dean will not
run again.   ThiB throws the electors very much in  the dark as to
who the next mayor shall be,  Still
the office is not likely to  go a begging, and there will  doubtless be
Bome one or another forthcoming
on   Monday   week.   Whoever  he
may be the Woiti.n sincerely hopes
tbat his platform  will be one that
it oan support   with enthusiasm.
The   present   administration, like
most of the others that preceded it,
has   courted   an   amount of mud
slinging   that   has   not .enhanced
their reputations locally, and haB
invited caustic comment from the
press of the city of whatever shade
of  politics.     This    is    invidiouB
enough, but the real trouble is that
such comment does not create a
good opinion outside.   The Woiti.r>
does not like to say, nor does it believe that the shade of municipal
turpitude here has   ever reached
the deepness of the hue of such
cities as  Minneapolis.   It was to
the interest of Minneapolis  that
suoh doings should be dragged to
the light of day, end it is to the interest    of    Rossland    that  there
should be a frank and free comment
on municipal   matters.   Only  in
such   manner   can   they be   kept
clean.   It is also to the interest of
Rossland that the incoming council
shall be good men and clean, and
who will have nothing to fear from
public comment, inasmuch as they
shall have nothing to hide of which
they are ashamed.   It iB to the interest of every   business man in
this camp, to every holder of real
estate, to every owner or occupier
of a home, that tbe city should go
forward.     We  want  the  vacant
houses,   the   vacant  stores again
filled up and stay filled.    But we
must have a larger income.   This
is possible by owning our franchises
arid by extending them and hy the
exercise    of    rigorous     economy.
Economy will give us a safer reputation.      Administrative     ability,
such as would be displayed by our
owning our own light, and by tbe
supplying of waler to the mines ior
the erection of concentrating plants
right here in camp, will give confidence to the investing public.   Under the present circumstsnees who
oan blame shareholders for holding
back on  the development of their
properties    under    concentration,
when the question of water supply,
a vital point, is still left iff doubt,
and when after   a     year the oity
counoil has failed to place itself on
record    on  the    matter,   though
each individual member the months
that preceded the last election.
All that Rossland asks is to be
given a fair chance. But in order
to get that it is absolutely necessary that the camp Bhould know
where its officials stand on these
supremely important matters.
AN AMBASSADOR.
A certain section of the British
press is in open discussion of the
motive of sending Chamberlain as
an ambassador to the Colonies, for
the purpose of discussing with
them severally the best methods ol
drafting our imperial fiscal policy
which will inure to (he commercial
benefits of the several parls of the
Empire, and yet which will serve
best for the unity of the whole.
The British occasionally take upon
themselves to rate the colonics for
the partyism of their press. To a
certain extent the charge is only
too true, but in face of the parly-
ism now being displayed in insular
Britain, the charge does not look
well   coming   from such a source.
Whether the proposal is or is not
relished hy parties in England,
whether they be Pro-Boer or Jingo,
is of little weight with the Colonies.
Greater Britain would like to discuss its policy with a statesman,
and if Greater Britain is denied
the opportunity beoause of the yapping of politicians who have what
Kipling calls the Green Sickness,
so much the worse for the Empire.

KETTLE   NORTH  FORK
Interesting Mining Country North of Grand
Forks.
A reigon exclusively tributary to
Grand Forks is tbe north fortk of
Kettle river, which extends north
for 80 miles. Thirty-five miles
above the city the river divides,
one fork heading norlh the other
turning west and rising on the west
ern slope of the divide near the Arrow lakes.
Development on the norlh fork is
not as far advanced aB in many of
the other sections of the Boundary.
Withiu a distance of 15 miles of
Grand Forks it can boast of such
well known properties as the Seattle, English and Frenoh group,
Humming Bird, Strawberry, Golden Eagle, Volcanic, Earthquake
group, Monitor, Tiger, Kitty W.,
Criterion, Christina group, Mammoth and Diamond Hitch gronp,
Pay Ore, Little Bertha, Bonanza
and Pathfinder.
The Humming Bird.Golden Eagle and Little Bertha have shipped
considerable ore by wagon to.
Grand Forks but the cost is almost
prohibitive. The PsthQnder is a
well devoloped mine but it will be
unable to ship until a railway is
extended up the river, The properties referred to could under favorable conditions ship as aggregate
tonnage of 300 tons daily. The
is now being developed by a Michigan company.

CHAPTER VII
In the days that followed it seem
ed the cruse of contentment would
never run dry, and I, foolish I,
thought angry destiny had misled
me and that these green Saxon
glades were to witness the final
ending of my story. Vain hopel
Illusive expectation! The hand of
fate was even then raised to strike!
In that pleasant harbourage,
outside the ken of ambition and
bjyond tbe limits of avarice, surrounded by almost impenetrable
mazes ol forest land, life was de-
lightful indeed. The sun shone
yellow and big in those early daye
upon our oak orowned hillocks—
sometimes I doubt if it is ever so
warm and ruddy now—and De
cember storms told mighty in
praise of the great Yule fires where
with we defied the winter cold. In
the summer time, when the sunny
Saxon orchards shelter the herds
of kine in their fliokering shadows,
and the great droves of blaok swine
lay a basking among tha ferns on
the distant hangerB, we lived more
out of doors than in. I'klitha then
would bring out under the oaks
the little ruddy cheeked Gurlh,
and set him upon my knee, that I
might cut him reed whistles or
bows and arrows, while the flaxen
haired Agitha played about her
mother, turning her pretty prattle
to the merry clatter of the distaff
and the wheel.
In the winter the blaze that went
leaping and orackling from our
hearthstone shone golden upon th
hair of those little ones as they sat
wide eyed by me, and saw among
the ruddy embers the white horse
of Hengist and the banner of his
brother winning these fertile vales
for a noble Saxon realm. Never
waB there a better Saxon than II
And when I told of Harold, and
softened to those tender ears the
story of hiB dying, the bright drops
of sympathy stiod ln my small
maiden'B eyeB, while Gurlh's flashed hatred of the false Norman and
soorn of foreign tyrants. Under
suoh circumstances it will readily
be understood that I ought to have
had little wish to draw weapons
again or bestride the good charger
growing so gross and sleek in his
stall all this long peace time.
And yet the * silken meshes of
felioity were irksome against all
reason, and I would grow weary of
bo muoh good fortune, finding my
pretty dockings and raiment heavier—more burdensome wear—than
ever was martial harness. My fair
Saxon wife notioed these moods,
and strove to mend them, She
would take me out to the hawking,
were I never bo gloomy, and then I
would envy the wild haggards of
tbe rooks who got their living from
day to day in the free mid air, and
asked no favor of either gods or
men. Or, perhaps, she wonld
make revelries upon the level green
before her homestead, and thither
would oome all the fools and pedlars, all the bearbaiters, somersaul-
ters, and wrestlers of the shire.
But I was not to be pleasured so,
and I slew the bear in Bingle combat, and tossed, vindiotive, the
so mereau Iters over the hucksters'
stalls, and broke the ribs in the
wrestlers' sides—till none would
play with me, and all the people
murmured. Then, of a night,
Editha got the best gleemen in
Merioo to sing to me, and when
they sang of peace, and sheep and
orchards, or eaoh praised hiB
leman's moonlike eyes and slender
middles, I would not listen. Nor
was it better when they turned
their strings to martial ditties, for
that doubled my malady, since
then their rhyming stirred my soul
to new unrest, making worse that
whioh they sought to oure.
