Thanksgiviiig Day    , ,
'The 26th instant is officially proclaimed as the particular day upon
which ; we '..Canadians are to return
tKanks collectively, for the blessings
vouchsafed us during the year'. Our
thanks as a nation if such a term is per*
ihissableyshould be hearty and isnani-
moHs.* No country in the world lias
moroio'be thankful for, and if we, as a
people do nothing to interfere with the
great'tide of immigration now rolling in
upon lis IroiiT almost every" corner of
the world,* further than to see to it that
the cast off, criminal and pauper classes
aro not to'be lavishly assisted to cast'
their lots with our great and growing
crop of citizens, it is prnbablo that' wo
willcoiitiiiue for decades to come, to remain at tho head of tho list of .growing
nations. All these temporal blessings
aro things for which wo should indeed
be thankful, but we must not forget
the greater.blessings which spring out
of .a religious, moral aud upright life.
Our.'grcat Dominion as a whole ranks
second, to,none in its respect for-,the
Christian.religion and tlie great moral
spirit which-springs from it.
Now that this great tide of prosperity
has'sot in and wealth begins to aeeuaj.
ulate it behooves us to take heed lest we
become ^fo'reretful, whilst .enjojiiig the
temporal comfort which com"s with so
much prosperity. We do not have to
travel far from our Canadian homes to
see the. blighting effi*cts of too much
accumulation of * wealth iu too , few
hands,audwhilst wo are thanking a
Divine providence on the 24">r,h for what
has been bestowed upon us as a people:
lot us mingle with our gratitude a small
still voiced prayer' that we may have
wisdom to enable us to avoid tho evils
which so often accompany vast accum
illations of tlie goods of this world.
The peoplo of Canada are strong
mentally, physically and morally andjf
every holiest upright man, woman and
cliild in our gre.U country should render tliemsplvosintoso many committees
of one, to see to io thut no dishonest, unscrupulous, designing schemer after
power, shall,be trusted in any capacity
.wherein he can use his "power for selfish purposes, we will be worthy, of all
thc goodthings thatare being showered
Uj-on us, and shall avoid the evils that
follow in the wake of wealth when used
to^opprcss and keep poor the poor and
the lonely. Let us remember the 2oth
aud be prayerfully thankful.

Permission .was.-jranted.
, Mr. A. Mntz wrote asking tlie privilege to continue tho Union hofel business
in the Old Town u'iitil the 31st of December next, at which date t hu license would
expire and for. which he had baid. Aid. Cree moved and Aid. Tmtle ; seconded
that tlm extension be granted on condition that the petitioner agree not to Rjiply
for.rcnewal.of license and to discontinue the business after the expiration of
the prwji'nt license.,"** Alderman Wallace strenuously opposed the motion, He,
stated that the.Union hotel was making more money than any hotel in,town and
in view ofthe agreement entered into at tho time of incorporation, he thought it
was unfair to the hotel men, twoof whom' wero members of tho Council, to allow the Union to" continue at all. Tho re'asoii, Mut!. was anxious to have the
Union'continue*, was that hegut a rake-off of 25 cents on each keg of beor thnt that hotel,, which went into his own pocket aud not into tho treasury of
the Fort Steele.Brewing Co . * * , ■•    ,
What a saving.of taxes would accure to the peopb* of^ Foriiie if Aid.. Wallace
was to turii-'liis&earcliltehteyes'ontoall tho.*trniisac*tioiis that concern'tho city!
If lib could only widen the scoop of his vision sunicimjtlylio.'inelude'tho -sMO.OOO to
350,000 of rakeoff that would go to tho C. N. P. K L. and P. Co during tiie next
ten years, if the city were to consent to tho ".-uggesiioiis'' of Maunger Lindsey,
he would lie doing someHiinjr for the-city whose interests ho has sworn' to protect. But jnst'.how a 25 cent rakeoff to Mr Muiz on beer siold at tho Union
hotel effects tho financial affairs.of the City of Fernie. is hard to" make out. If the
Union hotel pays 25 cents'a kog more for tlie beer consumed in tliat hostlery it
would seem that,the. city hotels would havo ju*.t thnt much advau't.-igi over the
Old Town establishment, and we would advise Aid. Walhicn to stand :n wilh Mr
Mutz and help hiui to rrtiaii liis rakeoff from 25 cents to *?'2.50 which would help
Mutz at the expense of Mr. Wallace's rival iu iho beer trade. .* Mntz could no
doubt make ft all right with the Brewing Co! so that ovory thirg would he lovely. 'Aldermen Tuttlo and'Cree stood their ground h'oivcver, and the motion to
lut the Union coutiuue to the end of tho year was declared carried, Wallace
voting in tlie negative/ ". ' **

The rebuilding of ihis great mill and

democratic leaders know, tbat -the selection of a man asa candidate, at .the
next election who does nol in every  respect meet the 'demands   of  the  rank
and file of llieir: partv,  means  humiliating,  defeat,   and, the' ..same   result
awaits lho bad candidate " who  should
happen hy machine methods to' secure
ji nomination from' the republicans.
* Thus it will be seen'  that' the   most
effectual way' Lo secure good' government is to have as few  party organizations as possible, and   using the   fran-
cl.ise   iii  lhe most effectual way.    - In
our own province we have lacked organization   along these lines so, long   that
it seems, hard to'get people to take any,
'inte'iosl in the affairs ofthe province.   -,
It is safe,to say tliat for years no government   hns   bad tlie confidence of a
majority ofthe people   and   the   result
iias been  incompetency    and   misgov-
irnmeul.    Party organization i» necessary  to carry "on popular  government,
hut it does not follow that the best way
to secure ihe  best   government   under
such a'systein is always to vole for  the
candidate/if the parly with   which   the
voter-is aiTiliated.    Sometimes the best
thing lhat can happen   to   one's   own
party is lo give it a rest from its  labors
of governing'.-

Tho Flower of Innocence
An angel handed to a child a flower
and bade the girl guard it as3 her life,
for it was more precious than any
.riches* and tbe child -looked upon' it
with wonder and marveled iit -the
beauty of its petals. And she guarded
it carefully, day by day," and in a little
while, when-she bad grown into beautiful maidenhood, she stood at the gateway ol life and talked to, lier flower
which she loved and she told it of her
beautiful dreams;,and the flower grew
ever sweeter and fairer in' the knowledge that it was to' be carried up the
h..l of lile hnd into the gateway of
Peace by so pure a.maiden.   A ■*   ''    -.
And then'onc day the.Ghost of Ga'y-
etycame into the life of the maiden
and pleaded, with her to wander, into
the Grove.of Pleasure, to which she
heldlhe' key; and lhe girl -answered
that she found pleasure in the -path ,of
life * and needed not to go aside. into
tlie grove. -.   .
7 And the maiden had climbed high up
the hill and had hidden the flower, from
every ray. of^ the sun day
-the-re eaiiie to her a black-robed spectre
called Sorrow; and Sorrow stayed with
her and mocked her and refused to
leave her, buMvlien 'Sorrow -stretched
out-gfaspfing hands for the flower,- the
