Sir Itobert Borden, Premier of Canada, has received the following cable
message from Hon. David Lloyd
George, prime minister of Oreat Britain :
"On taking up the, high office with i

We realize that we shall still need every man we can put ln the field and
every  pound  sterling that  rigid  private and public economy can provide,,
and every effort which a united people
can put forth to help in the heavy

gives me sure confidence thst yonr

In answer Premier Borden cabled:

Flngitonc House  Destroyed by Fire
and Three Small Children nre
Itescm-d with Difllculty
(Spectal to thc Herald)
Waldo; Dec. 28.—A somewhat disastrous fire occurred at Flagstone on
Tuesday afternoon*which burned the
bouse of Mike Rosier to the ground.
Tiie house was occupied by Rosier
and a hush foreman of the Rock Creek
Lumber* Co. and liis wife and family.
The mother had gone to the post offlce
In quest of mal] leaving three small
children at home. A rancher by the
name of John Peters happened to he
passing tlie house and on hearing
screams rushed over and discovered
thc house had caught fire. He immediately entered the house and res-
cud two of the children and It waa a
fow minutes before he ascertained
there was still another Inside. By
this time the fire had made great
headway and with great peril to himself he again entered the burning
building and carried out the third
child.
li was just eight minutes from Uie
lime the fire was first discovered
until the house was burned to the
ground. Rosor lost $350 ln cash which
lie was keeping in trust for another
party and also several hundred dollars worth of vegetables, together with
everything else he owned, and lt has
lefl him practically destitute.
Tlie origin of the fire Is unknown,
but it is presumed that an overheated
stove, pipe was the cause.
Shortly after the Hosier flre, on
Tuesday afternoon the house occupied
by Marvin Malin, a rancher near
Flagstone also caught fire, but fortun-
ntely It was got under control and
the only damage done was that the
roof was  severely scorchJd.
CUBIST CHUBCH
To be frank about the matter the
attendances on Sunday and Christinas
Day were rather disappointing But
Uie.il it is difficult to tell the way people's devotion will carry tbem nt
Christmas time! Doesn't do to worry
over much: just hang ou a while und
see.
In place of Uie usual form of service
on Sunday evening, the rector gave
u reading from Dlcken 'a Christmas
Carol, and a number of Christmas
carols wcre sung. Such a rending
was n distinct innovation and wus a
' pleasant relief from a sermon.
AlUiough a very happy note dominated the services, the "feel"   of Christ-1
i mas whh not a tittle helped bby the
( care with which the Church bad been
decorated.   The thanks of the con
grcgatlon are due to those who gave
[ so much  time and trouble at this
| busy season for the love of their little
! church.    Tbe  altar   waa  beautifully
[ adorned with white flowers.
KNOX CHUBCH
The special music at Knox Church
on Christmas Sunday proved must enjoyable and added much to the services. An orchestra of nine pieces
under the leadership of Mr. R. W. Russell assisted very materially In the
musical services of the day. In the
morning the orchestra played as a
prelude "March Romnlnc" and "Star
of the Bust". A violin solo by Vincent
Pink, "Adoration", together witb an
anthem by the choir "Sing, Ob Sing,
This Blessed Morn" were all much
appreciated by the < nngregatlon. The
pastor's morning subject was "An Old
Tims Hymn."
The evening service commenced at
7 o'clock with a half hour musical
service, the orchestru acquitting themselves most creditably wtth a number
of selections, and Mr. Percy Parker
giving a Cello Solo, Shuburt'a "Serenade", In bis usual accomplished
manner. Mr. Thomson in his evening
discourse on "ChrlBt, the Prince of
Peace", took occasion to denounce
tn strong terms President Wilson's
bungling attempts at peace-making.
Preeldent Wilson's statement in bis
note to the powers at war that all
the belligerents were fighting for the
same object, was an Insult to every
British mother who has given her
son to the cause. The Entente Allien
are fighting for the principle for
which Christ died—Christianity conserves the weak, whereas Germany
and her Allies have from the first
endeavored to annihilate the small nations altogether. That a nation which
has allowed the atrocities and outrages of which th* Germans have
been proven guilty tn Belgium, not
to mention the other small nations,
Serbia and Poland, should be compar- j
ed to the British, and that a person |

HO INCONCLUSIVE PEACE WANTED
In hla speeches during the recent
tour iu the interests of National Service Premier Borden reflected tho
spirit and determination of Canada in
this hour when lie quoted the words
of Abraham Lincoln, uttered in 1864
in the midst of tho American Civil
War.
"We accept thia war for an object,
a worthy object, and the war will not
ond until that object is attained. Under God 1 hope it never will end until
that time."
"And we", solemnly continued tho
Premier, "we, In Canada, accept this
war for a cause which we believed to
bo Just and righteous, And under Qod
wo hope that this war will never end
until the purpose has been fully anil
completely accomplished. Wo are
fighting In thia war, not for an Incon-
clusivo peaco truco that wlll mean
fighting tt over aga*n. Wo aro fighting for the assurance that Germany
■will never undertake auch a war of
devastation again."
NO ALUM

POWDf-P
In which they are now engaged, nnd
I pray them to aid still more in every
Hold of national service for which
they may feel themselves fitted.
"Let us never forget the solemn
truth that tho nation Is not constituted of the living alone, There are
those ss well who have passed away
aid those yet to be born. So this
great responsibility comes to us aa
heirs of the past nnd trustees of the
future. But with that responsibility
thoro has come some things greater
still, the opportunity of proving ourselves worthy of it; and 1 pray that
this may not be lost."
HOME SUGGESTIONS
By H. T. GadBby
Another act of grace on tho part of
thn Borden Government would be
to say to all the non-combatant officers In handsome uniforms in the Pay
and Records Offlco at London, "it's
your turn at thc front. Fight or go
home." The same thing could be said
to the stay-at-home brigadiers on this
Bide of tho water. There are enough
urgers In Canada, husky fellows who
keep egging thc rest of the people on,
to make a couple of regtmentB. Everybody would bo glad to Bee them get
their chance in the fighting line. Another regiment might consist entirely
of tho honorary colonels, with which
Sir Sam has beBtrewn thin huppy
country.
Joking aside, the Government would
do well to get after the four-flushers
who strut around In khaki but have
no Intention of getting nearer the
front than Piccadilly or the Strand
Make them wear the red and gold and
feathers of the ante-bellum days. That
would cure their prancing. Let khaki
bo the real distinction. These morning glories who take no rlBks should
be placarded some way or other, if
they were, recruiting would get a big
boost among real soldlero.
Another thing that would help re
crulting woud be fair treatment for
Major General Lessard—a man's sizr
Job at the front for which .this fine
soldier has been yeaulng ever since
the war started. The Government
probably thinks It would have too good
an effect in Quebec, where it has n<
real desire to recruit for fear of offending Its Nationalist allies.
LIKE THE HEBREW
(Trail News)
Even though tho allies look askance at tlie German proposals for a
peace conference, the fact that it has
been suggested by the kaiser haB naturally attracted world wide attention,
Undoubtedly, like the gentleman of
Hebrew extraction, his asking price
and his taking price are two entirely
different  things.

(Fernie Free Press)
The Provincial Government was out
with the axe this week. Every road
superintendent in the provlneo was
canned witiiout notice. Dan McNelsh
did not even receive his pay to the
end of the month. If the government
think tliat sort of thing gets them
anything with the general public they
have another think coming. No matter how unpopular an employee may
be he should at least be extended the
common courtesy extended in any business when a man Is discharged, ot
giving him a certain amount of notice.
TIIK BISMARCK SPIRIT
(Westminster Gazette)
When the French In 1870 complained thnt Germans fired upon the Bick
nnd blind in tho Blind Institute, Bismarck's reply waB that he did not
know what there was to find 'fault
with in that. "You do far worse—
you shoot nt our men who are in
sound and vigorous health." Women
and children, who In thick weather
find themselves In little boats after
their ship has been sent to the bottom must console themselves by remembering that they are, after all,
better off than German soldiers on
tlie Somme or German Zeppelin crews
at Cuff ley, nnd that International
law never says that they are to be
"comfortable."
NATIONAL SERVICE
In the Inspiring addresses recently
delivered throughout the West by Pre
mler Borden and Mr. R. B. Bennett
an ecctlve and convincing appeal has
been made to the manhood of Canada to assist  the  .National  Servk-
Commission by answering and returning without delay to Ottawa tho carts
which contain a number of questions
which all men between  the ngeB of
16   and  65   are  required   to  fill    ln.
There  ta  nothing  in  tills  effort    to
regiater the effective nrenglh of oui
population  that can  in any way be
termed as an  approach ti conscription, and the least that any patriotic
cltlzin enn do Is to promptly comply
wtth this request.
In dealing with this subject Premier Borden recently said:
"Our strength can be most effectively thrown into this conflict by
utilising, in all our national activities
for sustaining the agricultural, Industrial and commercial stability of
Canada, those who through age or
by reason of physical condition are
not available for service nt the front;
to the end that we may place ln thc
battle line the greatest posstblo proportion of those fit for military service. With this view the Government
has asked the Director General nnd
the Directors of National Service to
undertake duties of the highest importance and urgency. It la Imperative that the men and women ol
Canada, individually and through
their various organizations, shall
serve the nation In those capacities
In which their services may be of tbe
most value. Thus, it is the urgent
duty of the Canadian people to Join
with the Government in organizing
the full power of the nation In terms
of tinman energy.
"Under the responsibilities with
which I am Invested and ln the name
of the State which we are all bound
to serve, It is my duty to appeal and
I do now appeal most earnestly to the
people of Canada that they asaiRt
and co-operate with the Government
and the Directors of National Service ln the endeavor for this purpose.
To men of military age I make appeal
that they place themselves at the service of the State for military duty, Tc
all others I make appeal that the)
place themselves freely at the dlaposl
tlon of their country for snch service
at they are deemed best fitted to perform.
"And to thn women of Canada,
whose spirit has h»«n so splendid
and so Inspiring In this hour of dn
to tlon and sacrifice, ] bid God-speed

BOTH MINISTERS ltETIKNED
Vancouver, Dec. 22.—-The election
vesterday was in a wny without excitement, although before tho close of the
noils between five and six thousand
electors had taken ndvnntage of their
franchise. Tho vote shows that Mr.
Macdonald has been elected for the
third time within less than a year In
the city of Vancouver, although In the
election of yesterday ho was over 2000
behind Mr. Smith, but this Is easily
accounted for as there was no fltfit on
Mr. Smith. The result was as follows:
Smith, 7,40(1; Macdonald, 5,061; Mc-
Taggart, 3,908.

XMAS SERVICES IN CHI WHEN
(Continued from page one)
In President Wilson's position should
Intimate that both were fighting for
tho same object, was an insult and an
outrage, and could not be too strongly resented.
A pleasing feature of the evening
service was a splendid soprano solo
by Mrs. It. W. Russell, "Hark, lurk,
My Soul" nccompanled by violin,
.■■■lin nnd clarinet obllgato, and a
bass solo by Mr. Ilussel, who gave In
good voice that ever-beuutlful "Nazareth", with orchestra accom pan I ment.
Tho anthem "Praise ye the Father"
was rendered in good voice by the
choir.
METIIOWNT < HI IU II
A quiet enthusiasm, typifying the
flrst great Christmas, was the spirit
that pervaded the services of the entire day at the local Methodist church.
Willing hands had been busy in preparation tor the services, as was evidenced by the oxtremely pretty decorations which Included three beautiful
stars—the largest of which was so
placed as to suggest a natural position
in thc firmament and of course representing the Star of Bethlehem. The
congregational singing was especially
hearty, everybody enjoying the old
Christmas songs. Thc anthem "Christians Awake" was well rendered by the
choir and enjoyed by all at the morning Bcrvlce.    ,
The pastor told tho legend of Robin
lied Breast and the symbolic fitness
of evergreen decorations at Christmas
time, ns his story theme for the children, and then passed to his announced topic, "The Unspeakable Gift".
Everything else being equal, a gift Is
measured (1) by Its Intrinsic value,
(2) Its potentiality, <3) Us power to
express the sentiment of the giver,
(41 its personal element. These qualifications were aptly Illustrated by an
appeal to life and then the application
of thu theme mnde. Apart altogether
from any strictly religious aspect,
Jesus Christ has been the greatest
blessing to the world, even as an historic fact only. The potentiality of
Christ's iiinming to thc world Is more
apparent today thnn ever as we realize
that all It has meant through MOO
year*-) Is ns nothing to what we feel He
Is yet to mean In mental, moral, economic, social and spiritual emancipation uf all mankind.
Tho evening topic "Will Christ ever
come In the flesh again?" was anticipated by a good congregation, and
while the topic Is of such a controversial character yet many expressed
themselves In grateful manner for the
way the question had been simplified
for them. Ir. support of a spiritual Interpretation of such return, Mr. Key-
worth said, a physical appearance of
Christ was too material altogether to
fit the spiritual significance of Christ's
kingdom. "My Kingdom Is not of the
earth," said Christ," and It cometh not
by observation, but Is within you."
A physical re-appearance was often
looked for by -many as the only wny
ln which sin would be finally overthrown but the pastor maintained that
the spirit of Christ's teaching entirely
contradicted this leda.
The servee wV-s wonderfully enhanced by two lovely anthems by the
choir: "Thero were Shepherds Abiding" and "A Light to tlie Land Immortal." while Uie vocal rendering of
"Tha SUr of Bethlehem" by prof.
