Since Christmas Day the city
seems to have been plunged in
one merry round of pleasure, and
gayety reigns supreme. Christmas afternoon saw the opening
of the hockey season, when
teams from South Fort George
and Prince George met on P. ince
ice to battle for first honors.
South came out on the interesting'
end of a score of five to three,
after a (ine brand of the great
Canadian winter game had been
furnished the large crowd of
spectators, The opening game
was unquestionably the fastest
lirst game ever played in this
vicinity, and speaks well for the
brand of hockey which may be
expected from the ice gladiators
this winter. |
The line-up was as follows

Capt. W. Dixon Hopcraft, R. N.

did shipping men good  to see
I this famous old ship, the last of
the three white sisters, back
again. She attracted more attention than she has ever done
since she arrived on her maiden
trip, through the fact that she is
the first vessel which has acted
as an auxiliary cruiser, to touch
at a British Columbia port. The
officers and men were very joyful
over the prospects of meeting
their wives, families and relatives in Vancouver. They had
not seen them since they sailed
away on July 23, 1914
The Royal Mail Steam Packet
Company's steamer Merionethshire arrived at London on Wednesday last from British Columbia ports. She carried a giant
flag-pole donated by Brooks,
Scanlon & O'Brien to be erected
at Kew Gardens. The huge stick
was shipped at Vancouver.
The pole is 215 feet in length,
32 inches at the butt and 12 ins.
diameter at the top. The Merionethshire passed out of this
port on August 18th for the
United Kingdom.
Somewhat over a year ago. as
President of the Canadian Patriotic Fund, I made an appeal to
the people of the Dominion for
funds to assist the families of
the gallant men who were going
to the front. Though anticipating a generous response, I was
hardly prepared for the magnificent manner in which the call
was me', Monies have poured into the treasury of the fund
until the total contributions have
reached and exceeded six million
Large, however, as this sum
appears, it has not greatly exceeded current demands and, if
peace were declared in the immediate future, the entire surplus on hand would be required
before all the men of the Expeditionary Force could again return home.
To-day there are 25,000 families, comprising, it is estimated,
80,000 individuals dependent upon the Patriotic Fund.
With further recruiting the
demands upon the fund will, with
each succeeding month, continue
to grow, so that it is estimated
that, should the war continue
during 1916, a sum amounting to
some $8,000,000 and probably
more will be required. This
would, however, only mean $i
per head of the population for
the people of Canada, and it is
little indeed to ask of those who
remain at home in comparison
with the sacrifice in life and limb
of those who are fighting in defence of the Nation.
In spite of the various calls
that have been made for funds
to aid our soldiers and sailors and
the magnificent response that
has been made in each and every
case, I still feel assured that the
warm hearts of all Canadians
will respond to this further appeal to enable the Patriotic Fund
to continue its splendid work
during 1916 and take care of the
families of those who are fighting
for their Sovereign, the Empire,
and the Dominion, on the battlefields of Europe and on the High

SATURDAY,   JANUARY   1st,   1915.
The Civic    ^HIS week has witnessed considerable ac-
Election. tivity on the part of the various candi
dates for positions on the aldermanic bench
for the forthcoming business year.   With the commencement today of another year's business, the time has arrived
for the electors of this municipality to weigh carefully the'
qualifications of the men who are out for office and vote
for those who will have the betterment of civic conditions
at heart.   At a time like this, when the baby city is getting away to a good start, nothing is so important as wise
legislation.   Forthcoming generations must not be forced
to pay for the follies of present administration; taxation!
must be carefully controlled; retrenching is the order ofe
the day in world circles, and we must go slowly.   Over-
anxiety to produce big results and make a creditable show- j
ing often lead to error.   The electors must predetermine!
the future of the city.   It is a wise child who chooses his
own grandparents.   A paradoxical statement, no doubt,
but one with a world of wisdom hidden thenn ! It is a fortunate city whose first legislators were men of wide vision.

Life of _4 COPY of "The life of Lord Strathcona, I
Strathcona.        and Mount Royal" has just come to j
hand and we cannot refrain from commenting briefly on the merits of this excellent work.   Donald
Smith, the pioneer trader, stands pre-eminent among Can-|
adian empire builders, and a study of the above book, |
ably written by Beckles Wilson, will prove a literary treat |
in this day of cheap literature, when pink-tea romances, i
impossible drama and farcical tales of adventure fill our i
libraries.   In this book Mr. Wilson has erected to the
memory of a great man a monument that will do him honor.

Notes.       to be an agreeable diversion from the tedium
of everyday duties.   Quite frequently the
big dailies chronicle the opinions of the legislators at Washington to assure their readers of the awful solemnity of
the situation.   Nothing comes of it.   Is the United States
as a people, to be congratulated upon their determination
to keep out of the war game, though profiting hugely from
it, or are they simply blinding their usually clear vision
with that ever present optical illusion, the great American
Dollar ?
JUST about the time the world has been led to believe
the British troops are not doing any fighting—not even
near the scene of action—along comes an announcement
that a gallant stand made by British volunteers saved the
Allied forces from annihilation. The latest is the announcement that Irish and Scotch contingents in Serbia held thej
Teutonic-Bulgar forces in check until the French forces <
accomplished their successful retreat.   It cost the Irish I
and scotch 1500 men.   The British stand at Mons checked
the onslaught of Von Kluck and gave the French just'
enough time to arrange their defence along the Marne.

Apparently those who have assumed the right to speak |
for the Liberal party in; British Columbia are under the
impression that the electors are willing to trust their
affairs in the hands of men whose highest conception of
public duty is to assail their opponents with all kinds of
vilification, and who put forth every effort in their power j
to make the province appear in a false light before the
world. We say "Those who have assumed" because
hundreds of old-time Liberals have sent messages to the
Premier and his colleagues expressing their great pleasure
at the personnel of the new cabinet and their complete
satisfaction with the programme of action laid down in
Mr. Bowser's address. British Columbia never was carried
by a campaign of slander and will not, nor will any constituency in it be carried by such a campaign in 1916. The
electors want more than vague allegations. They will
support a party that stands for a progressive and definite
