FRIDAY,  DECEMBER 25,  1908.
Greetings.
\VV wish onr ri'.nlers a merry
Xniiis and happy ami  prospermia
ItCW year.
Are You in Line?
It is a wise arrangement lo li.ue
certain tlates which recall anil keep
before the public great iventi in
history. The event whieh proclaimed "Peace aiul good will on
earth" ellipses in greatness all other
events. In the COtintr) where that
spirit holds sway there is material I
development, commercial prosperity, the best order ami the greatest
happiness.
What is true of the nation is true
of the community. We have here
a llistrict which tor soil, climate
anil natural wealth is not surpassed
hy any other in the Dominion of
Canada. We point with pride to
tho many evidences of our mineral
wealth and boast with good reason
of the big red   app'e,   the   delicious
peach and the delicate Black  Ham*
bnrjj; t.rape which can be grown to
such perfection. The year l'X)8
record* a considerable advance in
the development of Keremeos ami
surrounding distiict and there is ,i
bright promise of much t;reatei results in 1909.
The bench lands of the v alley ol
the Similkameen have for many
years called in vain for water. For
a portion of this land, at least, the
approaching year will answer the
call. The pipe line, Hume and
ditch is now ready and in the Spring
the rtfrsahinsj .ind unstinted iv.iters
ofthe Ashnola river will be poured
over this ,ii id region and cause it to
rejoice and blossom.
The golden present is ours and
there is no shirking the fact that on
us depends largely the future of this
splendid valley. To SSCWS the best ,
results the Christmas spirit of harmony and good vvill should not be
set aside when the present festive
occasion is over hut should be maintained throughout the year. Harmon) is essential to success. I.yt
the knocker cease his knocking and
every man rejoice in the success of|
his neighbor. There is ample room
for all.
We will now proceed lo discuss
the editorial turkey with a clear
conscience. We wish our readers
kil the compliments of the season
and a full measure of happiness.
Local Option.
lhe I'entieton Press, after expos
ing what appears to have been a
piece of very shady work on thc
part of the police force of Vernon
in dealing with fakirs at the time of
the fair, proceeds to take a fall out
of the license commissioners for
granting a license to the new hotel
at Kelowna. Following up the
new theme the Press has this to say
on the question of local option :
"A  petition   praying   the   provincial   government   tor a  local
option liquor law is about   to   be
circulated for signatures throughout the province.      This   petition
vvill doubtless be of such   magnitude as to force  the  government
to   action.      Should   the   present
members of the legislature refuse
to respond, they will by so doing
dig   their   own   political    graves.
This is not a party question,   hut
a   personal   question    vvith   each
individual member of  the   Legislature, ami each individual   member   will   he   held   personally   responsible   for   his   own    actions.
The people   of  Hritish   Columbia
are determined to see   this   province placed on   an   equal   footing
with the   other   members   of  the
federation as regards the control-
ing ofthe liquor business."
We are   not   sufficiently   familiar
with the circumstances in    Kelowna
to either criticize  or   commend   the
course taken by the   commissioners
in   granting   to   one    applicant   the
license    they   refii'ed    to   another.
Kelowna is a growing town   and   a
third license there is not out of proportion to the   number   esiating   in
many towns which vve could   name.
The commissioners appear  to   have
been guided by the personal character ofthe applicant add the   expressed wish of civic authorities.     It   is
with the paragraph   quoted   above,
however, that we wish   particularly
to deal.
Our confrere premises that the
petition for local option liquor law
in the province vvill be largely signed and concludes that political anni-
hiliation vvill immediately pursue
such members of the local assembly
as do not tumble over themselves
in their zeal to support the petition
when it is presented to Ihe house.
The premise may be correct. No
matter how ridiculous or unworthy
a petition may be it is never difficult
lo syeure a long list ol signatures,
as witness the efforts which have
been made to save the necks ol
some of the worst criminals who
have ever faced the gallows. In
this instance, however, we would
not be greatly surprised if the
people of Hritish Columbia, who
have a habit of thinking and acting
for themselves independent of what
the rest of the Dominion may do,
should decline to assist in promoting a measure which has invariably
caused discord and dissatisfaction
wherever tried and eventually left
the cause of temperance worse off
than before.
As for the conclusion drawn in
the above paragraph, it  is   distinct*

ly wide of the mark. Who ever
heard of so-called temperance people
placing their principles ahead of
their party politics and exercising
their franchise in accordance? They
will not do this and legislators
know it. In the case in hand it is
to he sincerely hoped that our legislators will not forsake their usual
good discernment of right and
wrong and allow themselves, even
in the event of a largely signed
petition, to be stampeded into passing legislation which has been
amply tested and found wanting.
If ths Press or the temperance
party will formulate some rational
scheme of prohibition, which should,
at least, be provincial in its operation, and proceed about its accomplishment in a business like
manner we will lend it till the assistance in our power, but local
option !    Nix.
Until such time as a broader
scheme of prohibition can he produced the temperance people would
do well to discard their inane local
option hobby and turn their attention to the proper enforcement of
our laws as they stand. If these
were properly observed a distinct
improvement would he noticeable.

As a general thing we believe
that the residents of the Similkameen are better pleased that a
through train service was not established on this line. The advantage would scarcely compensate for
the present free and easy service
which permits of the train stopping
at any crossing or ranch along the
way and is a mighty fine convenience.
People do not value Christmas
presents according to their intrinsic
worth. It is the evidence of kind
thotightlulness   on the   part   of  the
donor that they appreciate. It follows that a present which is the
product of your own effort or into
which you have worked some of
your own individuality will be valued far ahove any shop gift however
costly.
Monday, 21st, was the winter
solstice, or the day on which the
sun was farthest south on its annual
course. For the last week or two
old Sol has found il loo much exertion to climb above the hill that
marks our southern horizon and,
while the people on the bench have
been a little more favored, down
here we have almost forgotten what
his smiling face looks like. Now
that he has commenced his northward journey, however, the ilavs
will begin to lengthen and it won't
belong till we have a full share of
sun beams.
