At this season of the year it is
interesting to review the pco-

IT has come to our notice that an attempt is being made,
by certain local Government officials, to create in Stewart a
Musicians' Union,
Unions are very good institutions, when applied to trades
upon which men and women depend for their daily bread.
Further, it is our policy to support any organization that has
for its purpose the advancement of, and better living con-
ditionsjor the people as a whole. But when Government
officials,* who already have lucrative positions, attempt to get
out and agitate for the formation of a union, and the raising
ofchargesfortheirownpersonaladvancement.it is a very
different proposition.
A community does not exist for the special benefit of any
one or two individuals, government officials or otherwise; nor
do public institutions that are organized for the good of such
community.
Government officials, particularly when they are property
owners in a town, should, above all others, set an example of
publi: spiritedness.and we sincerely hope that, after due
reflection, this attempt to increase the cost of dances and
entertainments to ths community, will die the death it
deserves, for we feel confident there will be no mourners
at the  funeral.
CHRISTMAS
The next regular meeting of
the Royal Order of Moose, Portland Canal Lodge, No. 1218. will
be held in their hall at Hyder, on
Monday, January 8.
Shortly after The News goes
to press (Thursday evening) the
school entertainment and program will be in full progress in
the Stewart hotel auditorium,
and later, Mr. Santa Claus,
dressed in Eskimo regalia, will
appear on the scene and distribute the presents on the tree.
The branches of this "giant" of
the forest are loaded down witli
gifts for the youth and beauty of
Stewart and vicinity.

GOOD   NEW   YEAR   RESOLVE
CHRISTMAS
CHRISTMAS, the evening as it were
of the year, brings with it a recounting
by each of us, of the events of the past
twelve months. Some have experienced
good fortune, while with others it has
been the reverse. Last year faces that
were with us, are this year absent. The
year that is drawing to its close, has left
its mark upon every household.
Nevertheless, with this season of the
year, the spirit of "Peace on earth, goodwill toward man" is abroad; kind acts and
reconciliations are the rule; radiating joy
to the world as a whole; bringing happiness and pleasure to every hearth, and
merriment to all. And everywhere the
word passes���
A   MERRY   CHRISTMAS.
A LITTLE more kindness, a little less
creed; a little more giving, a little less
greed; a little more smile, a little less frown; a
little less kicking a man when he's down: a little
more we, a little less I; a little more laugh, a little
less cry: a little more flowers on the pathway of
life; and fewer on graves, at the er.d of the strife.

Once more we reach a finger post,
Upon Life's broad highway
To keep a tryst with Father Time
Who comes with greetings gay.
Laave care and trouble to themselves
Let pleasure hold full sway,
Hark to the laughter and the song,
All hail to Christmas Day.
The old folks and the youngsters join
In play and merry jest,
Or in the singing of the sonjrs
That folks love the best,
Because the mem'ries that they bring
Are like a golden ray
'Lumining all the happy hours
That crowd the Christmas Day.

AN AGGREGATE VALUE OF $734,259,619
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province
is strikingly exhibited in the following figures, which show the value
of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895,
inclusive, $94,547,241; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for
