MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS  If bis Honor/ thc Lieutenant-Governor accedes to thc request of the  petitioners and appoints January 0th  as the nomination day for the  Hi-st Revelstoke municipal election, it  is obvious that there is not a great  deal of time to lose before thc people  of this town decide into whose bands  they will commit its destinies during  the first year of its corporate existence. The choice will he a momentous onc, as a great dent of work and  a good deal of spending will fall to the  tlrst council's lot. Their task will be  full of difficulty and responsibility and  can only be performed to the satisfaction of all concerned by men of  broad ideas, without, private axes to  grind or any worm-eaten feuds still  lingering in their heads. The town is  badly scattered and the only men,  who can handle it properly must be  men, in whose sense of justice and  impartiality the people have a  thorough confidence. At the same  time the conduct of the affairs of a  municipality"is a business affair and  requires men of business, in whose  mental make-up caution is nicely  balanced with enterprise?, to manage  it so as to entirely achieve the desired  results.  Perhaps our readers will think we  are asking too much. Perhaps we  are.. At the same time it is well to  aim high arid.only to be content with  tho best we have got, even if in  this sphere of existence the absolutely  best is attainable. Tliere are good'  men in this town, il" they can be induced to come out, and it should be  the effort of everyone, who "wishes  well to this place and'believes in its  future, to see that thoy do come out.  There is one encouraging feature  about the situation, which may well  he taken into consideration by our  business men in deciding - whether to  run for the council "or not. and that is  that the chief difficulties which beset  the progress of Revelstoke, seem to be  in a fair way of settling themselves.  Nest year will in all probability see  the business quarter definitely located  a������id_the trade"of the tpwn__centralized  there. This1 will greatly tenel ~*to,  smooth the'difficulties of the task of  governing the town. Questions which  twelve months ago were ���������*of serious  import, will, the Herald confidently  expects, within the next' twelve  months haye sunk into compar .tive  insignificance through the force of  circumstances.  Taking thisfeature of the situation  into consideration, the Herald hopes  to see prominent men of business com-'  ing forward without hesitation (o  seilieit the suffrages of the ratepayers  recognizing that it is. even from- the  most selfish point of view, of distinct  advantage to their own private inter-  estsTHatTthe affairsof thetowu*shoiild  be wisely and judiciously administered, while at the same time they owe a  certain amount of self-sacrifice to the  place, in which they are building up  their fortunes. The Hekald- hopes  to see some of our live business men  recognize their duty in this mutter and  come, forward without further delay  to appeal to tho votes of their fellow  citizens ior election to tho first council of the now City of Revelstoko.  CHRISTMAS !!  Wherever we look there are indications that Christinas is approaching.  At home t.ho children havo an air of  mystery about them and' their little  hcarls nre evidently burdoneel with  great secrets compared In which thc  whereabouts of tlm Emperor of China,  and the disposition of the Philippines,,  pale, into insignificance. These signs  of the approaching YuTetide are not  confined to the home: circle. Tn the  stores tliero is to ho seen on every  hand the signs that Sunt a Clans' agents  have heen abroad and far afield and  that thoy are ready to supply tha,t  which the. loving thoughtfillness of the  home circle suggests.  No matter how small or humble the  present may be it will phiy its part in  making the Christinas more pleasant  to someone. The people here generally have had a prosperous year. Peace  una prosperity have abided, and henc-e  we shoulel feel in tho mood to enter  into thc joyous spirit of the festiva.1  and also to do a fair share of the  buying of presents. No one should  hesitate to remember kindred because  he or she cannot afford to purchase  that which is expensive. The present  is not valued because of its value so  much as it is .in expression of kindness  and of goodwill. Looking at a present  from this standpoint, the smallest gift  is often given a very high value by  the recipient. Give ull that you can  afford to and so make the day as  much as possible a red letter onc to  others. In this way the occasion will  be made doubly happy for you.  A careful perusal of the ads in the  Herald will materially a-~'~'e>t you  in making your wlfC-ions.-  ATLIN GOLD COMMISSIONER  Mr, J. D.

A CEHUl.NE^CrPiEVAHGE     s  The  P. ,0.  Department  Charjed" Witi  Discrimination Against Canadians  Letters from miners in Michipicoten.  to citizens in Toronto are full .of complaints against thn mail service for.  thedistiict. The men say that thev.  have petitioned time after time to tho'  Postal. Department, ..hut with no-re-]  suits, and th'e ottly way the mail gets'  in is hy the miners" brifigingrVit in  themselves, that is. walking to Missan-  ahie, a distance of 50'niiles, for it.  Further than  this they say  that a.  United States concern started work on  a'mining  property on   Michipiqoten.

And Enters a   Nou-Conformist   Pulpit--  h"ath"r O'Leary's Little Joke ���������Labor  Legislation  From  our  own   Correspondent.  London,  December  li.���������At   the    adjourned examination Mr. Hooley came  up smiling as usual, and  the coolest  man in the court,    ln the days of his  greatness the  cycle king  was a, candidate   for  parliament,   and   although  he was offered two perfectly safe seats  lie preferred to faco the ordeal of an  election and as a pledge to his political constancy he contributed  ������10,000  to the' party war chest.  But Mr. Hooley had other ambitions  ho wanted' to become not only M.P.  but a "jubilee Baronet" and again Sir  Wm. Marriott, ex-judge advocate general, came in ns a go between, and  received a check for ������50,000. According to Mr. Hooley the suggestion came  from Sir William that if he paid that  sum he could be made a baronet.  The check was drawn in favor of  Captain Middleton, ihe agent of the  Conservative party, and remained in  his hands for ten months, anel wns  then icturned to Mr. Hooley with the  intimation that it could noi bo clone.  A correspondent mentions that so  certain was Mr. T-looley of obtaining  his baronetcy at the time of the Diamond Jubilee that his Invitation card  to a favored spot at the top of Luel  SERIOUS  ACCIDENT  i  Albert Head Killed by   an Explosion of  Acetylene .Gas  From  The  Calgary Herald  Aa explosion of acetylene gas1 occurred in the basement of Kerr Bros'  grocery score shortly before noon today (Friday).

A VICAR JN A CONGREGATIONAL  PULPIT  The Vicar of lloxton attended at the  Congregational church. Wellingborough, on Sunday last to preach and  administer holy communion as a protest against the ritualistic practices at  Wellingborough.  The building was crowded an hour  before the service commenced. The  vicar said"great efforts bad been made  to proveni him from taking the course  he had���������u course never adopted before in ihe religious history of this  country. Not only had an inhibition  been served upon lilm by post but  the mom ent, lie arrrivod in Wellingborough that afternoon another inhibition wns served upon him from the  Bishop of Peterhoro.  He told thc bishop very clearly that  if he would do his duty, and use the  authority which the law gavehim to  put down illegal practicas in that  town, he would not lake that exceptional course. But the bishop refused to do his duty, and by his actions,  plainly  said   he  was  on  the  side   of  es wil prefer to do without any "social  legislation."

BRITISH .COAL OUTPUT. TWO  HL'NDHL'D MILLION TONS  Dr. Le New Poster's annual report  on the output of our mines shows  that 1S97 was the biggest year the  coal trade has ever known. From  Ihe mines of the United Kingdom  were dug and raised 202,129.H"!" tons.  This colossal output exceeded that of  1890 by no less than 0,763,071 tons.  The export of 37,000,000 tons is also  the largest on record. It surpassed  our entire output 50 years ago, and ic  considerably exceeds the total production of nny other country in the  world. Germany and the Uniteel  Slates excepted. The average price,  per ton nt the pit mouth was a fraction under six shillings ($1.50), tho  number of people employed above au.'i  below ground, including those engaged in working tho. iron stone' and fire  elav produced froin coal mines was  r.sf.531.  For 1S73 the average price of conl  in tbe London-market was 3,1 shillings por. ton; last year it was 15{4.  The difference between .the price oE  etal at Uie pit head and in London  was !);ii, for England as a whole 8|9.  The railways consumed as follows:  Great Kastorn, 30,990,000 tons; Midland, 20,720,000; Liverpool and N. \V..  H',G4S,000: Great Western, 15.4S1.000.  A good deal is heard ut times of the  clangers oE an invasion oC foreign  coals. The figures show that last year  v.o imported 711 tons from Belgium,  :���������" ()~.2 from Germany, and J30 tons-  from the United States.  It is not as if they dont know all  about this demand for good glrle by  householders In the towns, especially  in Calgary .where there is a veritable  girl famine, bu t tho aggravating part  of it is that they do know all about  it, and simply wont take advantage  of the prevailing conditions which  with prospective immigration will  certainly not last forever.  If they are so very fond of stock as  never lo be happy when away from a  milk pail und corral, tliey could go  out ."ml work for just six month!" or a  yenr iinel save up enough money to  buy a nle;c littlo bunch of cnlves for  themselves. In course of time tbey  would grow up, increase and multiply.  ���������we   in can  the    calves    would���������nnd  when a goodly I10-.1  later!  tliey would find little or no difficulty  in securing a husband. This glitter-,  ing prospect we lay at their feet. Tho  Free Lance is rend in hundreds ot  farm houses between Calgary and Edmonton, nnd those remarks aro in-  Icndc'el ns much for the eye of tho  parents as tho girls themselves. A  number of the best families around  Cnlgiuy have been trying in vain to  get girls to do housework.

The result of the coroner's investi-  gation into the case of the man who  died such n violent death near Innls-  l'nil last week, shows that he had been  hard at work for some days previous  on a satirical poem, in which every  other line was to rhyme with Wetaskiwin. ��������� It was intended for the lnnisfail Freo Lance. .Tho verdict was  death from unnatural causes.  ~ *   *    *  Red Deer as   a community   is   certainly no Mutual Admiration Society.  *   *   *  AVe cannot subscribe to this toady4  ing to big men who already have  every honor thai tbe heart can possibly desire, by making the. nomenclature of this country bristle with  Ellgins, Dufferins, Abordeens, Mintos,  Slrathconas and so forth. The moment we heard that South Edmonton,  (that toadstool village which sprung  up half way in a decade anel then  stopped), was likely to be Incorporated, we knew that ' the Comforter  would immediately-suggest Minto as  a suitable name. We offered to wager  vast sums of money on tliis proposi-^  tion, but wo could only find one  1.; Iter and he wanted to bet on tho  nod. It was Colonel Young, and he  was ot' the opinion that the Comforter,  after all the attentions we had shown  Uiem, could not do less than suggest  and insist upon Lanceville as thc  pioper caper. The right kind of a  name for a plncc like South Edmonton, to our mind, would be a soft  sounding name similar to Kuskinook,  Okotoks, or .Tabherwok. Even Com-  forlerboroiigh would not bo so dusty,  tbougli personally we favor StuEton,  to rhyme with Sifion.  *   *    .

Oh no. Life is no modern  play. It may not be unlike onc ot  Beaumont and Fletcher's, or.' Ben  Johnson's, but it certainly bears no  resemblance to any of George R. Sims'  or Henry J. Byron's works.  ���������    ���������    *  Perhaps wc might make a slight  reservation in the case of Hoyl the  farce writer,, for, if anything was a  screaming farce Life is.  drinks mineral or any other kind of  water up there; but as for thc petroleum, they can do with lots of that  to help them out of the Chlmerean  darkness in which Ihey havo boon  plunged so long. What thc stony-  brokes of Edmonton really need is 11  flowing well producing beer, spirits,  sqiinrc meals nntl cigars.  +    *   *  In Canada the zealous politicians  arc   always   skirmishing   around   for  , pretexts to make new laws. Thoy  have a mania for making laws, half  of which are non-enforcible. The  law ns it relates to the liquor traffic  is as farcical a piece of business as it  1 wore possible to imagine. We should  presume it was n sop thrown to the  church. A lot of those impracticable  old frunipu who play nt legislating in  Regina r.nd elsewhere should really bo  shoveling smoke in a foundry, or  gathering sea shells and pebbles out oC  a gravel pit.. In the making of laws  of this nature they forget to reckon  with hiimnn nature, which shows what  blessed  idiots they are.

If one  of their objects was to prevent a continental combination from stepping  In between the United States nnd Spain  that object had apparently been obtained.  Without a sword being drawn, the  government has .recently v.-on a brilliant victory In more thnn onc quarter of the'globe. The rattling ot the  sabre was sufficient. Nobody rattled  it more significantly than Mr. Goschen  when ho sent his sensational telegram  to Sheffield apologizing for his absence  from the Cutlers feast.  Evidence of an easier state of matters is found In the fact that the first  lord of the admiralty is now able to  tnke  a  holiday  at his  seat  in  Kent.  ALLEGED SLAUGHTER OF THE  WOUNDED  Sinco the victory of Omdurman a  statement bas been current to the effect that prior to the light the Sirdar  gave orders that all wounded Dervishes were to be killed: and it has been  said that parties of British and Egyptian troops were sent over the field  of battle to put their bayonets through  any whom they might find alive.  It is satisfactory to know that the  Sirdar bas allowed himself to be interviewed by a special correspondent  of-the Daily News, and has given a  complete denial lo a. report that could  not fail to damage bis reputation for  humanity.  It-was also said that in previous  campaigns against Dervishes there had  been a similar slaughter of wounded,  justified by thc plea that the Dervishes  are in the habit of pretending to be  wounded, and when any foe approaches then suddenly jumping.up and at-  i tacking him. This story the' corres-  ! pondent himself denies as to Abou  i Klea, Gubat and Dongola. That many  thousands of wounded Dervishes were  left to die on the battlefield is unhappily true, but'the fault is not that of  the' British  commander.  The doctors bad too much lo do in  attending to our own troops, and no  one"can suggest that they were not entitled to the first consideration.  THE TWENTIETH CENTURY FUND  At. the inaugural meeting of Methodist-' In London last week for the  promotion ot this fund 70,000 guineas  were promised. "The city of Leeds  was chosen as the first of the provincial centres to be appealed to, and the  outcome of a meeting there on Wednesday was, that promises of 30.000  guineas were made by the various cir.-  cuits in that district. '*  ��������� .Thus tbe net results of - the two  great meetings in connexion with this  seemingly gigantic scheme are promises amounting to 100,000 guineas���������a  tenth part of the required sum. Mr.  Price Hughes and Mr. Perks, M.P., are  already justified in regarding themselves at within measurable distance  of the realization of tlieir hopes.
