VERNON, B.O.,
MIDWAY'*  XMAS  THEE,
For some time past quite a rij.pl* of
excitement hud stirred tbo usually
placid lives of Midway's feminine
population, and this state of affairs
was brought to a climax when on
Olii'latiniis night the public were given
admittance to Palmerston'ahall. Many
even among the adults viewed then
for the Hist time what was without
itilit. a magnificent Christinas tree.
The decorations of the hall, which
were arranged In truly artistic style,
und drew forth praise from all who be-
held llieni, consisted of the niottos
" Welcome to our Olitistmiu) Tree,"
"A Merry Christmas," "A Happy
New Year," and "God Save tbe
Queen," together with lings, the Onion
Jack and Stars and Stripes entwined
ou each side nf tbe principal Christ*
tree,, combined with pictures, Chinese
lanterns, evergreens, etc., ete,, whilst
ilie tree itself (nr rather trees, for there
were three of them raised upon a dins)
were simply loaded with ail kinds and
descriptions of articles, some of which
wore very beautiful and delighted old
and young aline.
As to numbers, Santa Clans himself
must have lieen astonished at beholding such a display of generosity, for
upwards of three hundred presents
passed through bis bands, two hours
of his time being taken up distributing
them.
For a description of Santa Clans
we bad butter turn to the little noes,
for they only can give a true rendering
of his appearance, which did not take
place, until after the following address
of welcome bad been delivered by Mr,
Norris:
" Ladies, Gentlemen, and Little Ones:
"The motto that is at present, hidden from view, but which will soon be
disclosed to vou, reads thus: "Welcome to our Christmas Tree," and it is
with feelings of pleasure and pride I
carry out the duty that has deputed to
me, viz., on behalf of the ladies of
Midway and vicinity to extend to you
all a very hearty welcome to this the
first entertainment of the kind ever
held in your midst, nnd at the same
time to wish you a Merry Christmas
and a Happy New Year. The primary
object of this gathering, you will understand is to entertain the possessors
of the beaming little faces that arc
looking at uie with such fullness of
expectancy, and therefore I trust that
one and all will throw iiside reserve
later in the evening und give a cheerful assistance., so Hint lbe enjoyment of
to-night may ever he associated iu after
years with the pleasant memories of
childhood, For a fullness of enjoyment, however, it will he necessary
Hint Santa Clans ahull iiinke his appearance here to-night, sn I beg of you
oue and all to lend your mind to this
one thought, and let your only prayer
be that he, in his rapid flight on errands of mercy to the people of the
earth, may deign to tarry with us, if
only for a little while, to scatter good
things among those who are so ready
Iind willing lo gather them. But
hark! what is that? do 1 hear the
jingle of bells? is it possible our prayer
is so soon to be answered ? but yes, it
must lie so, for surely Santa Clans is
now rapping at the window and I must
leave to let him in.   (Applause.)
The curtain falls and Santa Clans
stands revealed to view amid the
Christmas Trees, and such u Santa
Clans, with fur coat, cap and boots,
currying in one hand a lantern,
upon which was Inscribed strange
greetings, in tbe other a long whip,
and this was bis greeting: " Bisiuallah,
lnsballah, Fallallab! Good evening
little girls, good evening little boys, a
Merry Christinas to all my Children
I have come from the far north and
rapid has been my journey, for 1 knew
you were all anxiously awaiting me.
Ureal use I have made of iny whip to
(joule the four beautiful reindeer that
drew me over the crystal snow. Hul
I came very near not bringing ynu ajl
those beautiful present-:, fur surely t
unit, a large while liear in Aliwka, who.
wished local, llieni up, but I. said "go,
away, go away, I cannot bear you," so
1 was allowed to pass on, mill after
surmounting other Innumerable difficulties here I inn ready and willing to
cheer your hearts and in/ike you
merry,"
And merry the 1111* Siuitn Clans
spent aiming thein trujy wns, with
jokes, trite sayings, anil happy remarks, and his departure came all loo
sunn and wus much tjqgretted by all
although taken mil'd) great applause
After the distribution of presents
refreshments were served to all, after
which, Mr, Alex... Sherrett having
kindly volunteered lofiirnish the music,
I he floor was cleared and two hour
were spent in dancing, which brought
ton close one nf tlm pleasanlest gatherings ever brought togethi'i' in the
country.
Great credit, is.diuj to the ladies whi)
worked so hard nnil, so long to, Wiug,

Vaiu'oijvei' World. "Among other
railway undertakings with which the
legislature will have to deal thi, session is the Red Moiniiniij railway
scheme, lu April, ISHti, it graiiledthis
company, of which CT. Dupunt, P..
11. J'cinliertoo, and D. ('. Corbin are the
leading lights, a charter to build a lin.
from a point on ihe International
lioundary on the right fork of Sheep
creek, up tbe said creek to Ited Mnuii-
lain, tapping the Trail creek inine.-.
Nothing has been done in Hie nny pi
commencing operations and the chill*
Ier expires in April in default of bona
tide operations. The promoters will
haven hill before Ihe bouse, asking,
among other tilings, au extension nf
time in which to commence operations,
Certain events have transpired since
the graining of the charter to prejudice members of ibe legislalure against
the Red Mountuln company, It is
practically Ihe Nelson jtForl Sheppnrd
Railway Company, or, in other words,
D. C. Corbin. This gentleman is the
principal owner of the Spokane Falls
k Northern railway, the American
continuation of the Nelson k Fort
Sheppnrd railway connecting with
Spokane, The railway company owns
the townsite of Northport, and within
the last year bus made every effort to
build it up nt the expense of British
Columbia towns, To such an extent
has this been carried out that the Nelson k Fort Sheppnrd railway has refused—so it is reported.—shipments of
ore from Trail Creek at any point in
Canada, necessitating shipment by
steamer to Northport, The way things
have shaped recently bus been sulllci.
ent to convince members of the legislature that the construction of any
such line us the Red Mountain railway
could have but une effect, that is the
diversion of traffic from its natural
channel through British Columbia
towns to the American townsite of
Northport, An effort will lie made to
impress upon the house the fact that
the building of the road will tend In
Iiicreuse the material Importance and
progress of an American townsite at
the expense nf places OU this side of
the line."
Tlie following is part of the Nelson
Tribune's rejoinder In the above :
"The Nelson k Fort Sheppard railway has lint refused In receive Trail
Creek ore at its stations, All ore from
that district is now transferred from
steamboat lo rail nt Wiineta; and
were the Pilot Buy smelter now ready
to treat ore, every ton of Trail creek
ore could be treated at that point, provided the charges for treatment were
tbe same us at American smellers, for
the simple reason Ibnl lbe transportation charges from the mines lu Pilot,
Buy would he ffl 11 tun less than the
charges now paid fui transportation In-
Tucuina nr Great Falls, Were the Red
Mountain rnud built tu a connection
with tbe Spokane Falls k Northern nl,
Northport, the transportation charges,
tu Pilot Buy would be even less than
the present rate, for both the wagon
and steamboat hauls would lie done
away with. The World should nut
intermeddle In railway matters thiit'do
not concern its own bailiwick : it is mil
sufficiently broad-minded tn discuss
econo'mio questions thnl concern lbe
province at large. * * * ,.
It (lbe Wnrld) would have sniHsV<r<i
Kootenay kept as a preserve for tins
Canadian Pacific, or fnr llie men who,
build railways, like the Nakltsp * Sin*,
cnn, on the credit of tlie- province,
There is nn reason why lbe inine owners of Trail Greek should be deprived
of Ilinl whicli is granted ilie people of
other sections nf lbe province, Ibal  is,
transportation,facilities; und mnrees-.
pecinjly when,such facilities are tn lie

A MATTER OF CHOICE.
Nelson Tribune, Dec. 22.-" Whether
or hot jf-'gener'/l election is to be' held
'at all rirly day or a late day, it should
be-me doty of every electorIftYale
artu 'Kl)oteiiay to vote, solid for a nieui-
Mjjj who frill pledge himself to make an
julenipt to remove from office Fust-
office Inspector Fletcher. ' ThjS may
Work a hardship on Mr. Mara, the
present member; but Mr. Mam has
Jong refused to act ns his constituents
Wish him in this and other matters and
1C will have to step down'and uut to
nake room for a niiili who will do us
ie is told by the people whose servent
113 Is."
The people ef sqiith If note-nay, whose
wishes and ideas are' well voiced by
the Tribune, have undoubtedly suffered
Immense Incon'yen'IpncjB owing to dross
stupidity OT fne. part of the pqstofflce
department 'jis represnted by Mr.
rlclthm-.' The people of south Yale
i|jj(j'have no reason to cherish a friendly fcjiling towards Mr. Fletcher, those,
at any rate, who live in the south
pkanngnh and Ketflo river.
The manner in which the country
south of Okanagan lake has been
treated during the past four years in
this rejpect would lead anyone to believe that the arrangement for mail
Contracts in this section was left to a
committee of lunatics. If Mr. Mara is
wise io his generation (nnd he certainly
jins the reputation of being so) he will
undoubtedly take some acton in the
ik'e'r'before the next general election
I
,|-J|i place, either by securing the
lostoffiee inspector a handsome pension for life or by getting another official appointed to arrange mail contracts for the districts in bis constituency. This may be a very "smalt"
way of treating a political matter, but
f' oliticB in this section of Canada are
ery suiail imyway, and if Mr, Mara
pannot secure Kettle river a better
piail service than that lately accorded
tq it, he can rely on receiving very
few Kettle river votes.
Subscribers to the Advance who did
not receive their paper by last, week's
mall are entitled to know the. reason
Why, Il was owing lo the mixed up
Slate of affairs caused by the old mail
3ervice giving place to the new one,
tye lujnde \ noble effort to get a paper
out in time to catch the last mail for
the west and north, which now leaves
Midway en Monday and not, Weunes-
Say (or Tuesday, as hist week),
put in common with almost everyone
in the place, failed to connect, as no
notification wus given beforehand as to
the change, Henceforth this paper
will he published on Saturday night tn
fall in with the weekly mail for the
iorfh, and will be sent by one of the
subscription mail services to Grand
WairiVand points east.

COIIIHSSPOMDENOIO,
'I'u lliu Editor uf Tim Auvascii:
Sir—For somo reason at present unknown the Advance hue not come l,o
bundi possibly the mall service is al
fault i any way your tidy and interesting paper has mil. visited the writerfor
a number of weeks.
The valley is settling down lo winter
quarters, and cattle aro lining gathered nlf the ranges fur feeding. The
stock is coming in in fair condition
and us feed Is plentiful, with ordinary
care, and unless Iho winter |s very
severe, the cattle should come tlirpugh
oil right.
The prospects of the valley (ire
brightening. The hard times, wliieli
means with us slow sales and scarcity
of ca^h, are getting \b» pepple down to.
business in reducing expenses and
practising economy, b«sjdes making
plain to some the lai.) i lint good |i|,iin
common seni-y, backed i)p with honest
work, is a sjirer tneans of prosperity
than wild-cat speculation or trying to
get rich at the expense of somebody
else.
Mission Valley is progressive. The
inauguration nf the "Agricultural and
Trades Association" is a ipai'ked step
forward, and r-efleets. the greatest credit
on the forethought and perception of
those who brought the society into ex-
isteqpe, apd nq doubt it will fully justify the expectations pf its most sanguine supporters,
There are coipplnints p to expensive
transportation, Freight rates seem to
be always u bone of contention. It is
certainly true that without cheap
transportatipn some of our iqost valuable resources must be idle. Whether
we shall ever get as cheap rains as
those in ihe eastern provinces must be
doubtful, considering our piuuutain-
locked position,
If we are unfavorably situated in regard I" cheap tianspurlntiuii, what
must bu the position of those to the
south nf Okanagan lako and in tho
.Siinilkaineen valley f And when the
great interests at stake are considered,
the development of tbe lower Okau-
ngiiu and Siinilkaineen countries must
be seriously handicapped by lack of
quick and easy accesB to tbe coast.
Jn the days of the cayuse and pack-
npile t||e quickest and easiest route to
llle const was from Penticton to Kcre-
meos, and up the Siniilkameen river
lo Princeton, thence across the mountains to Hope, about 1-15 miles. Now,
why could not this old and reliable
route he again used, and the most
recent scientific invention to reduce
I he cost of travel take the place of the
cayuse and pack nude? In other
words—would it not be possible to build
nn electric tram line from Pentictou to
Hope, taking in the mining camps to
the south ? There is an abundance of
power along the line. I presume
Okanagan Fulls would furnish power
enough In dn a great deal of the work,
aud the Siniilkameen and other
streams coqld be safely relied upon to
do tho rest. It seems to. me that tram
cars coi'ld, he made to climb grades in
the Hopo Mountains as well as the
hjlls between Westminster and Vancouver, As for the funds to put the
thing in operation, if everybody along
the route, or would be affected liy such
an enterprise would take hold of it, I
see no reason why the money could
not be raised. I am neither an electrician nor engineer, but I make the
suggestion in the hopo that if the idea
is feasible a cheap and ready means of
access to the coast can be had for the
late spring, summer and early fall
months that would lie of great advantage t(i the residents of this valley and the
coqutry through whicli tho road would
pass, And if such a scheme is practicable to Hope it might be possible to
continue the line down the south side
of the Fiuser and cross the river on
the new bridge to bo built at New
Westminster, making that city the
terminus, and thus get the support of
the people along the Frasep, and also
some assistance from the city of New
Westminster,
This letter has now become much
longer than I expected, so I will not,
continue It further, only to sav that if
this tram |jno is not an impossibility,
the Government would no doubt help
in its construction.
Wtvh best wishes, yours truly,
Settler,
