FOR^ KIDDIES
The big treat of the holidays
took place on Monday evening,
when 75 children were given
their annual Christmas party at
the opera house, which had been
transformed for the occasion.
The largest possible tree was
lavishly hung with tinsel and
colored lights, and the room was
decorated with spruce boughs
and scarlet Christmas bells.
At half past seven the children, accompanied by their parents, gathered in the hall, and a
noisy, happy crowd of kiddies

A MERRY CHRISTMAS  TO YOU
A "Merry Christmas To You" are the
greeting words that with the coming of
day are ringing around the globe  this
Christmas morning.   Old differences are
displaced by the glad hand of friedship, a
hearty wish, and expressions of good will.
Strangers are made welcome, friendships
are cemented, families are re-united, in
the spirit of peace on earth, good will toward men, that encircles the world this
Christmas morning from east to west, and
north to south, in every  language and
every clime, from the sun-baked deserts
to the frozen snow and ice-clad north and
south, out into the trackless wastes of the
ocean.
As this glad morning breaks on the
cradle of our civilization, men and women
will arise seeking each other,   and  from
their very hearts will exchange the greeting
of "A Merry Christmas to  You."     For
Chrst is risen, and man seeks man,   and
woman, woman, and parents seek their
children.    Broken strings are re-united
and the  nets of friendship and goodwill
repaired   Out in the  sand-driven,   sun-
blstered deserts of Africa, parched and
baked-up men will take up the cry, passing it joyously to the man in the precipitous snow-clad Alps.   From there it will
re-echo back down into the crowded cities
of Europe, where the young and old, rich
and poor, will  Wake  this  glad   morning
with sentiments of joyousness and thanksgiving, passing on the word to wife, mother, father, stranger, friend and little
child, "A Merry Christmas To You."
Then, fast as the coming cf day, the
cry will be passed across the bread Atlantic, out to the west, and from the scorching sun of the equator, through the sand-
strewn deserts and the big cities, the cry
of the east will echo far up into the Arc
tic, and down into the Antarctic, out into
the wide Pacific and on, to whence it came.
The prospectors, out in the cactus and
sands of the desert, up through the mountains, far into the north, will reiterate the
greeting of "A Merry Christmas To You."
The miner, all wet  and  bespattered
with mud, with lamp on the front of his
hat, will come up from a hard  shift  of
wresting riches from the bowels   of  the
earth, to greet his fellow with "A Merry
Christmas To You."
The cowpuncher, riding long trails
through the bunch grass country, will
wave a glad hat, or grasp the hand of the
passer-by, in joyous goodfellowship.
Down in the crowded, dirty, badly
ventilated streets of our great cities, and
out into the more pleasant suburbs and
bright surroundings of the farm, men,
women and children will wake with gladness in their hearts, greeting each other i
with that which makes life worth while,
the cry that is this day echoing on and on,
out to the seamen on the wide, trackless wastes
of the oceans.
The trappers in the north, traveling long
distances over their trap lines, through dark timber, snow, and over ice, will foregather in twos
and threes, this glad morning, and under the
cold, frozen sun of the north, will extend to each
other the hand of friendship and goodwill.
, The little children, from down in the slums
of the big cities, to the mansions of the rich, will
wake early in expectation of this glad day of all
the year and scurry to see what Santa Claus has
brought them, then hurry to the bed-side of their
mother and father in joyous exhaltation. For
even though the mother and father may have gone
hungry, and in other cases generous people have
been found, who in the spirit of the day have provided that this most glorious day of all the year
may not pass a disappointment for those for
whom Christ cared most, and "Merry Christmas"
echoes back from their little throats, out into the
wide expanse of all the world.
Prospector, Miner, Cowpuncher, Trapper,
Explorer, Trader, rich man, poor man, beggar |
man, thief, one and all in every land and clime,
and in every tongue from east to west and north
to south, takes up the cry of "A Merry Christmas
to you."

Secret sessions of British Parliaments have
Ion* been a subject for much criticism. While
such sessions were more or less common during
the war, they were looked upon under stress of
circumstances, as more or less necessary. However, with the close of the war, the public naturally concluded such procedure would not, in the
ordinary course of events, be resorted to; therefore great was their surprise when the British Labour Party, in the House of Commons moved, at
about 4 o'clock in the morning, for the exclusion
of all visitors, even the press reporters, which I for
mo tion carried, and the House continued in secret
for three hours.
No doubt such action on commercial legislation was neeessary, nevertheless it was a surprise
and one that will have far-reaching effects; for
Parliaments throughout the British Empire take
for their procedure, precedents established by the
British House of Commons.

! CASSIAR REPORT
The Department of Mines of
Ottawa has reported on the Cassiar stamede of 1925 as follows:
About $7500 in gold was produced, according to W. A, Johnston, of the Geologicgl Survey of
Canada, from placers on Goldpan
creek, Cassiar, British Columbia,
during the summer of 1925. It
was on Goldpan creek that the
find was made in the autumn of
1924 that led to the rush into this
j district in the spring of 1925.
; This creek is a tributary of Little Eagle river and lies eleven
i miles in a direct line due oast of or under anv circumstances, consulted
i   ,     ,       , in connection with the above  mention-:
the head of Dease lake. ed sale by P. E- Rees.
All the mining    was   done   byj    3.   That we knew   nothing   of   the
hand as in the   seventies,    when deal whatsoever until the day   before
the Cassiar district was the scene
of considerablo activity. Nearly
all the gold was obtained on the
lower part of the creek from the
Discovery claim, 1000 feet long,
and from claims No. 1 above and
No. 2 below, eaeh 250 feet long.
The creek was mined out for

We, Herbert W. M. Rolston and
Henry D. Rochfort, Brokers, both of
the town of Stewart, in the Province
of British Columbia, solemnly declare:
1. That as a firm or as individuals
we absolutely had nothing whatever
to do with the sale by P. E. Rees, on
or about the first week of September,
1925, of some Five hundred thousand
shares (500,000) of escrowed stock in
the Porter-Idaho Mining Company
Limited. j
2. That we were not as a firm or as
individuals, in any way, shape or form, ',
the first contracts were signed.
4. That the syndicate   to   take   up
the said stock was formed   and   consu- ',
mated absolutely independent of H. W.
M. Rolston & Co. as a firm or the members thereof as individuals.
5. That we make the above declaration in order to refute certain reports
that are in circulation in centres outside of Stewart and  also to   clear  up
a j a misunderstanding which   appears to
l    r mr   i - i nave become fixed in the minds of some

depth. Some gold was found in
the upper parts of the creek,
which is nearly four miles long,
and on its tributaries, but apparently not in sufficient quantities
to pay for working by hand methods.
Considerable prospecting  was
sale by P. E. Rees.
And we make this solemn declaration '
conscientiously believing it to be   true, j
and knowing thac it   is   of   the   same
force and effect as if made under   oath
and by virtue of the "Canada Evidence
Act."

and extended as far north as
Frances lake, east to Muddy river and in the west on the north
fork of Clearwater river. One
party of prospectors used a hydroplane for moving from one
part of the region to another, as
well as for flying in and out of
the country. Late in the autumn
a discovery of placer gold on low
benches in the canyon of the first
north fork of Clearwater river,
about 25 miles above the mouth
of the Clearwater, was reported,
and a number of prospectors
went into the area. No information is available as to the importance to be attached to the
new discovery.
Machinery including a dragline scraper outfit, over 30 tons
of hydraulic pipe, and a Keystone
drill for mining and prospecting
on Dease, Thibert and McDame
creeks, on which most of the
mining was done in the early
days, were taken into the district last summer, so that although the Cassiar placer field
is an old one, and has produced
very little gold in recent years,
the past summer has witnessed
a marked revival of interest in
the possibilities of the region.

Local Stocks
(Quotations by H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
Holiday season this year does
not appear to have had any ser
ious effect on the stocks, and by
reports from the southern cities
it appears as if the voalnae of
trading during the present month
will be a record.
Many of the local issues that
have been apparently dead for
some months, are begin ing to
show activity,
Victoria Mines ar* in demand
at steadily increasing price.
Porter Idaho staged a slight
come-back during the week, rising a point or two. Unconfirmed
rumors are current of a strike of
high-grade ore in the crosscut
tunnel.
Dunwell continues to slacken,
and at the present price is looked
upon as a sure bet.
Indian remained inactive, with
little trading.
B. C. Silver is in steady demand.
Independence remains In demand with steadily increasing
prices. The big demand for this
stock appears to come from the
U. Si, where it is rumored that
the company has been financed.
