GREETING   FROM   FIJI.
Christmas    Letter    From   Tom    Rankin,
Formerly  of  Nelson.
The Daily Canadian is In receipt of
a Ions letter from T. H. Rankin, who is
now residing in Tuha, Fiji. Accompan>-
Ing the letter Is a copy of the Fiji Royal
Qasette, which contains the announcement that "His Excellency, the -Governor, has heen pleased to appoint Mr.
T. II. Rankin to he I'ost master. Tuba
Hy command, Arthur MuhulTy. Colonial
Secretary." ThlH shows that even In the
Fiji Islands merit is certain tu be ie
warded  in time.
The letter in itself contains much Interesting Information. Mr. Kankin in
addition to his duties as postmaster is
managing the Fiji Saw-Milling Company
at a salary of ��40 per month aud a
quarter share in the profits, which lasi
month amounted to more than his salary. He says; I like Fiji very much
and enjoy first class health. It is very
warm, as we ate pretty close to the
equator. I am on the second largest
Island in the group, a few miles up a
very pretty river called Deeketl. Of
course, you understand. Fiji is still a
Crown Colony. We have good laws, well
administered. Our election for the Leg
islatlve Council will take place soon,
and I am sending you a circular from
one of the candidates asking lor m>
Influence and support, so ymi see that I
have not lost all interest In politics M>
crew consists of a sample from each
of the Islands in the South Seas, hut I
get on line with them, especially the
Fijian. They are a much larger race
than the inhabitants of the adjoining
islands, the average weignt of lhe men
being 100 pounds.    I have a ren   line
house and four ser\anis, t ,vo men and
two tnaramas. and life all round Is Indeed pleasant I will have to make a
trip to British ColnmblB early in the
spring, and if I can scare the time I
will visit Nelson. With regard! t., in
,airing friends. I remain, your truly, T.
II. Hankin.
90YAL VISITS TRYING
London Police Relieved at Departure of
Kaiser and   King  of  Spain���Harvest for Servants.
London. I-tec. 84.���Stories concerning
royalties who have been recently visiting Kngiand arc still going ihe rounds.
The Kaiser's liberality is spoken of as
notable even fur a great monarch on a
State visit. He left $10,000 for 'tips"
tor servants at Windsor Castle, and his
generosity was everywhere nn tin* sanu
scale. The emperor's visit to Kngiand
mtibl have cost him many thousands Ot
pounds. His departure, when, by the
way, despite the absences at his own re-
Quest, he received a tar heartier greet
ing from the London public than on his
arrival, was a great relief a. the detec
tive force who had, as unobtrusively as
possible,, kept close watch on him all
tho time.
King Alfonso's departure, however,
was far more welcome lo that hard-
Mirked both. The Kaisers programme
might be strenuous] but he always ad
bared to It. hut Alfonso, who was presumably In greater need of safeguard
mg, was a great trial. lit; had no respect for programmes. He would
change his m'nd at the last minute and
dash off in a motor when something entirely different had been arranged.
One story goes lhal the Kaiser wnrn
��� d King EQdward that he viewed ton leniently the Inroads of Socialism In England, hut the King only smiled In re

ROUGH  ON  RATS.
Crusade   for   Extermination   Started   in
London.
London, Dec. 24.���The great anti-rat
crusade was started last week with such
supporters as Lord Ayehury, Sir Lauder
Brunton, Dr. Crichton-Browne nnd Sir
Harry Johnston. They proclaim the
astonishing fact that the rodents cause
$sji.,0no,o<>0 worth of property damage
annually In England alone, while their
hygienic danger is still more appalling.
It is pointed out that they are chiefly
responsible for the spread of plagues
and epidemics, and trichinosis has been
traced to rats, which infect pigs and
subsequently people who eat pork. Rats
multiply at the rate of eight hundred
descendants yearly from one pnir.
Denmark has tried the experiment of
paying two cents for each dead rat, at a
cost of ��8,600. It is calculated that
these rats would have done damage to
the amount of $195,000. The English
agitators of the rat crusade advocate a
similar law in England. Friday's meet
ing, however, was a walk-over for the
rats. In that it proved a fiasco almost.

CRUEL JMICISM
American Naval Expert
on Evans' Fleet
CALLS SHIPS TIN CANS
Retired Admiral Endorses Indictment
and Blames Red Tape Methods
of Department.
New York, Dec. 24.���McClure's magazine, published today, contains a sensational article by Henry ileuterdahl, who
has an international reputation aa a
naval expert, regarding the American
navy, with particular reference to the
cruise of Admiral Evans' battleship tleet
to the Pacific.
Under the innocuous title "The Needs
of Our Navy," he finds the American
battleship's "a lot of tin cans, so to
speak." The foil -swing are among his
indictment���:
That open shafts tu magazines mean
lnvo.untary suicide.
That in this connection danger from
exploding shells would suggest itself
even to persons who have no kuowleJgu
of naval matters; _,
That insufficient ammunition hoists
are the laughing stock lor men who
know anything of war conditions or who
huve been through a naval light;
That the poor protection toir *;i-n
crews is not only scandalous but uoiuz-
iug;
That the lack of torpedo boats .tid
destroyers is the most glaring f i lit cf
the American fighting Motilla;
That with all these material sh incomings to fight against there is t>* t
added handicap thut most of the Hsftoers
are too old for command.
The only patriotic note of Reuterdahi's
strong indictment is that Pre^i leu*:
Roosevelt is not responsible for thee It-ring faults. The writer claims that as a
matter of fact Roosevelt for se/ertl
years has attempted to "make good" In
battleships and cruisers, out *ea tape
and "the intrigue of the most powerful
men in both branches of congress ��u,ve
pievented the United States from buying a fleet which could fight an ejual
number of vessels of any first-class

Newport, R. I., Dec. 24.���Rear-admiral Luce, the retired founder ir the
naval war college, being freer to
speak about the navy's defects than nry
other record officer, frankly ad;ui*-t'-d
that all McClure's charges are true.
"The naval men all along knew this,"
he said. "We simply have made mistakes but we will rectify them.*'
He blames tho weakness of the fact
on many heads. "The bureau system
is the curse of the navy."

by the sailors who had put off from
the bark In the other boat and who finally reached the mainland-

Best Wishes for a

brate  the  das   ol   Hi-'  Nativity  ol   the
Divine Pounder of the B*ail a,
It is nn eloquent  ��� i Lbute to tbe worth
���and ih" beauty   of   Christian doctrtm
thai as
"Tin' time draws  uear ih>-  birth  ->t
Christ,"
even    hearts    on    which    II    bs      a.
bold, relent  hi  their pursuit ol
objects, and are touched by the reeling
of brotherhood and kinship,   "Peace on
the earth, good w 111  to men" becomei
for a day tin* ideal of nil. and eapi clallj
to Utile children, lu ct mmemoration ol
the birth  of another  infant,  tbe  mosl
careless und indifferent experience emo
tions of kindness.
"Thu Innate goodnt..- of human us
ture," often no haul to recognize in thi
fierce strife of work-day rivalry, ftndi
expression in the general observance ol
truce from  ���strug^l''-
it ia chiefly among people nt British
blood Unit ChriKlnias. which BUpei I d<
ami ennobled their heathen festival sea
son, Yiii< tide, that tii>' birthday ol
Christ in Immemorial]') associated with
the. home, wiih ihe family hearth, an
the circle round It, broken perhapi
during the year, hui restored If posslbli
at Christmas. It Is not only ol Un
Caitb of his fathers, however strong 01
weak lis hold on iiih mind or heart ma
be, but of the hotfie Of his family, tin
Islands of his race, the thousand ai oi
lations of his life, that the UrttUhei
home or colonial horn, thlnltS as tin
twilight faiin on Christmas eve.
The Pacific province is fast becomioi
a land of homes and home makers. Tin
pioneers have made in h destrablt
places where they briug their wives uml
Children. Hut there were a few years
ago, and Mill are in the remoter corners
where the prospector or the cruiser has
mn yet been followed hy the railway "t
the steamer, lonely men to whom
Christmas is a day tor solemn thoughts.
.Seldom has the jdwil of "peace on Unearth" been more marly fulfilled than
now. Except on the frontiers of Mo*
rocco there is nowhere a state of war,
and   not   iu   many   years   have  so   tiuihy
peaceful assurances passed among representatives nl the .ureal powers whose
strife would involve the world.
Our own country enjoys unbroken
peace and comparative prosperity, in
Canada there are lew who cannot enjoj
.ulli, measure of Christmas cheer and
look forward to beginning soon anothei
year Ln hope ami confidence.
The pleasure ->i Christmas consistb
noi in gaining but in giving. The happiest man ami thi most deserving of a
met ry Christmas is the one who hah
Lven urns!, not in ostentation or with
ulterior motive,    but    in    sincere and
i i btful klndltm ss, Countless kU.s
bave been received and tent this year
by iiif people of Nelson In token of affection and friendship. .May givers and
ii i elvers i>��- SQuali)  happy,
li i. no longer aeci i sary to Minimi
ihe people of ih" Queen City that at
;iiis season the spirit oi faction and
enmity should be allowed to slumber.
iin* city Is become Indeed a conununltj
w,tii common Interests, common hup* s
ami Ideals, The interest ol one is the
Interest of ail  and ihe welfare  ot  ail
Should   be Ih"   aim   of each.     Nelson   can
afford lo la) aside care and anxiety and
njuy tomorrow.
Tin* Canadian wishes all its readers
a Merry Christmas,
law Is now paralysed. The rumor prov-
ed false, for so dear Is political consistency to the heart of the Liberal politicians that they decided to allow aRrarian
crime to run riot a little longer rather
lhan UBe the coercive weapon which they
always condemned when It was In the
hands   of the  Unionist   government.
The Irish secretary must have spoken
with his tongue in his cheek, to use an
Irishism, when he complained to a deputation of Irish landowners on Friday
that they did not co-operate with the
���Kdice in furnishing evidence against
cattle driver*-. EJe got a prompt answer,
that the graxiflrg and herdsmen dare not
Come forward because ihey firmly believe they would be murdired if they
testified against the raideris. This is
common knowledge In lhe affected districts. Yet Mr. Ulrrell affected to receive the iulormatlon with surprise.
There is small doubt that outrages
will continue on on Increasing seals
throughout Ireland, and It will be Interesting to see how long a Liberal
government will permit anarchy to continue without recourse to effective iipa-
Bun s of repn ssion.

SWEDEN'S M MONARCH
Gustavus  V. Opposed to  Norwegian   In-
dep.nd.nce���Admirer   of
Kaiser Wilhelm.
London, Dec. 24.���Like father, like
boh. Ib a saying that will hardly occur
to the historian in a comparison between the old and the new king of
Sweden. Of course, we have seen
princes transformed by the responsibilities of government, aud King Guslav V.
may change his point of view before
long; but at present it appars that his
accession inaugurates more than a new
reign, and that a new era Is at hand.
On mor..* than one or two occasions the
preaahl king has been regent, and Ills
lalhei's advisers were afforded some insight regarding hla character. They all
know, for example, that hail C.usluv been
klim he would have chosen war rather
than lhe peaceful separation of Norway
and Sweden. They feel sure, however,
that he would have avoided war by
crushing out Norway's aspirations for
Independence years before.
The new king is credited wilh much
force of character, despite a retreating
chin, and a manner that Tails to ln-
Bplre enthusiasm. Wise after the event,
he, like all men, can Bee that his father's
fine gifts were wasted in an effort to
placate Norway, an effort spread over
a long life. Oscar was the most venerated king in Kurope outside the one
country where he chiefly desired esteem.
The Norwegians were not mollified by
his fine character, his endless patience
and his sincere desire to further thei.-
Interests by nny concession, short of
absolute separation. Gustavus knows
that patience was wasted on a people
determined on separation; and it Is
hinted that he may dealre to try his own
si��ectnc. even now thai the whole question seems over an.l done with, lt Ib
this policy that causes statesmen to
prepare themselves for news from
Stockholm.
li i.- generally supposed that Gustavus
will strengthen the ties between his
country and Germany. He has always
been an admirer of the Kaiser's, and
probably Is the strongest friend the German emperor has among the crowned
heads. The new king has been very
prominent in the establishment of a new
ferry service between the German coasl
aud the most southerly part of his kingdom. He hus been a frequent visitor a.
Berlin. An alliance, open or secret, between the two powers may be King
Gusiav's answer to the guarantee of
Norway's independence on Jhe part of
Ureal  Britain and llussta.
