HIGHLY PRAISED
B.C. Fruit Finest of all Exhibits
From Canada.
Montreal, l.'ec 10—The "Star's"
ipecial correspondent in Loudon
cables:
"Some governmental authorities in
Canada still have to learn that the
best Canadian products are useless
in British markets unless thty have
been properly packed. The Royal
Horticultural Hall, Westminster, has
been the scene of a magnificent display of British Columbia, Nova Sootia
and Ontario apples, and other Iruit
Large numbers of English fruit merchants, intending emigrants and capitalists have been attached by' these
displays The British Columbia exhibits came 6,000 miles, yet the pack
ing wis as good and the fruit was as
perfe't as when it was picked It
fetched the top price of 25 shillings
por box at Covent Garden. Mr. Pal
mer, the Briti.ih Columhia rovern
ment's representative, is receiving
general congratulations. Nova Scotia
apples exhibits are also good, but box
after box ol apples labelled Ontario,
although originally beautilul Iruit,
were marked in transit t- a degree-
that makes them unmarketable. Ontario should suppress half these exhibits. They do much to harm Can-
sda's Iruit fame."

FINANCIAL CRISIS
Bright Prospects for Coming
Year.
The Columbia Agencies, Limited,
report: There is probably no question
that interests the general public so
much at tbe present time as the
financial outlook, and tbe tendency of
tbe investment market and banking
policy is being closely watched, The
most cuiiliile.it statement that has yet
appeared was made by Sir George
Drummond at the annual meeting ol
Canada's leading financial institution,
tl.e Bank of Montreal, last week, when
he decla.ed the coming year would
spell increased prosperity for tbe
Dominion. That expression may be
taken as indicating that leading
bankers regard the present liuancial
depression as a rapidly passing storm
to be immediately lotion ed by a renewal ol tbe prosperity that has characterised the past few years.
Tbe number of new bank charters
applied for shows tbe demand for
greater banking facilities, and a.
several of these applications will uo
doubt be granted by Parliament, and
new banks will open up, tbe result
will be a considerable increase in
currency or the money supply, with
tlie result thut wheels of industry will
again merrily revolve and a means uf
employment will be found lor the
great army ot workers who... the
prcsuiit financial dep.esswn has thrown

SWASTIKA
Popular Emblem of Good Luck,
Long Life and Goad Wishes.
It may be interesting
to our readers to know
the meaning of the
word Swastika, which,
as an ornament hai
become io popular throughout the
west and particularly in this oommunity. The word "Swastika" ii
derived Irom the Saniorit, meaning
good lortune, well being, welfare. It
is the oldest known symbol in the
world snd is found in prehistoric
graves and ruins in all quarters of the
clobe. In India, where it probably
originated, it is lound in tbe ,ii.mn-
-iins carved upon solid rock, while in
Arin na it is paint.il upon the walls
.1 i he eati.iu.s. The ancient Greeks,
Cliff Dwellers ol America and Brazilian! adopted it fur  their  pottery.

COLUMBIA BRIDGE
Active Work in Progress for
New Steel Structure.
Day in, day out, woek alter week
the thud ol the pile driver and tbe
busy hum of work can be heard on the
Columbia bridge, It will well repay
anyone who iB interested in the welfare
of Revelstoke und in the conttruotion
ol bridges, to take a walk along the
traok to tbe bridge, where hundreds of
men are now employed making
preparations for the removal and dismantling of the old wooden itruoture
an.l replacing it by a modern and up-
to-date steel bridge of nine spans. In
carrying out a work ol this kind, skill
and science are brought to bear in
order to ell'ect the change in such a
manner as will not delay traffic. The
work of taking away all material and
part of the structure that is not vital
and whioh will not .weaken the whole,
if removed, ia going on, while huge
pilei are being driven fnr the false
work whereon the new spam and steel
girders will be placed ready to slide
them intu position. A large amount
ol work has to be done for this purpose, only to be removed alter the
spans are in position and this entail s
considerable material, time and labor,
Work is being pushed forward as
rapidly as possible in order tbat the
bridge may he comploted in May. No
better bri.lgsmen are to be found thin
on this division snd it is sufo to say
that the Revelstoke bridge will be as
good and sound a piece of work ae

CIVIC Fl NAN'CHS.
Elsewhere in tbis issue are publish-
ed two by-laws, one ior the raising of
money by the issue of debentures, for
tbe construction of a city j til, the
other lor the purpose of covering the
overdraft at the MoIbohs Bank, also
i.y the issue of debentures, which overdraft has, iu tbe last few years, considerably increased. The question ot
a city jail has beeu belore the council
for some considerable time, uu action
having been taken because it wus
thought that arrangements between
the government and the city authorities could have been arrived ut Tl.e
government we understand hnve arranged to erect a jail ol their own
aitii fiiil, nothing definite bus been
done smce the calling of the tenders
recently, and it bas now informed the
city that they must cease pitting
their prisoner- in the provincial lockup at the eud of tbe yeur. This then
is the reason why .he city council
bave decided to issue debentures to
raise money if.r this work. A city jail
is a necessily and city prisoners can
le employed on city wotk ol certain I
kinds thereby esving the expense of
hired labor, and also of transportation j
and keep ut Kamloops. As regards
the lank overdralt there is much to
be said. li. the year 1903 certain debentures issued uy the council were
lying ..: the baDk unsold and the
council ner... ilraid to issue 11 ire ind
asked the bank for an overdraft until

MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS,
It is ns yet somo lime before the
municipal olections will be held, hut
nevertheless it ia 1. -i .. hit In., .-"tin to

as provincial or dominion government
uiul indeed should be studied more

atl'icts in every wny onr business, our
home lile and our welfare as citineus,
in other words tbe community ns 11
whole which is striving to develop the
city. Already there is 11 great deal ol
talk about the subject aud several ol
our citizens have indirectly caused
their names to he mentioned as possible cai.did.ites lor civic honors. From
what wo eau learn there will he some
dilliculty in forming what should he n
1111 ly representative council, since the
business men with few exceptions will
not come forward .....I aid in the onrry-
ing on of city husiness, hut, mostly
prefer to lay hack and criticize uud
complain nbout those that do. The
city council should be linn in their
decisions und not give way to every
little request that conies in as lias
been duue, possibly wc presume with
the fear that- unless they grunted the
request uf the people who elected
theni, they us individuals would suffer.
The electors bIiouaI have sullicient
confidence in their representatives to
know that if a request was not grunted it was lor the best aud let it stand
at thai. If they cannot trust thcii
own men, then don't elect them! We
hope thnt the new couucil, when
elected, will apply itself energetically
und with businoss ability to tne problem of putting civic finances on a

Vie are sp| touching tl.e festive season when tl.e whole of  the Christian
iv..rid gives itself up to unalloyed
pleasure and nil ill r,Ul,hard tbnughi*.
and dti-pondent cares are put aside
nnd the spirit ol "peace on earth and
good will towards men," is upon everyone. Vet amidst all this there are
s me people n-ho look on Christmas
i. a cynical light, finding fault, and as
if grudging others the pleasures which
they themselves cannot or will not
.lloiv themselves to enjoy. liis....r
Intention to give a cynic's view ..I
Christmas.
'It is eust mury nl this seiison tu
wish our friends (real and appaiem)
and even very slight acquaintance
'.i puny Christmas," but wear, 1.1
the opinion that merry CbnSi muses
belong to the pust. Thnt pnst—f uiu,
inr to most of us ly hookloie—fiihei.
Christmas wus Christmus; when lhc
festivities weie kept up o a whole
Week, wiih all its etcitei'-.s—the hour's
head, wassail bowl in tl.e baronial hill
ami llagous of foaming ale in ilu
kitclu'ii ; biter when the Christum*
tree was set up in thegrent hall ol the
manor and loaded with toys and
sweets for the iill..ge chi.dren; when
the waits played from house 10 house
and thecaral singers trudged th.ough
the snow to farm lions, s on Christina-
eve to ml.er iu Christmas morn;
when season's cheer in every house in
niorrie England was the oustomary
goose und piuinpudding; when master
.....I iiiiiii met on a common (uoting in
the capacious kitchen ami danced
"Sir Roger." with rosy cheeked maids
find high bnd dames while the yule
log blazed and the tnis.leioe over all.
Chat was Christmas! We knew it not
as our lathers knew it. This festive
season has not the power lo expand
men's hearts as of yore. The stiuggle
lor existence which is becoming more
terrible every year has blunted the
liner sensibilities of the working
clusses, while in the eager chase utter
the almighty dollar the broider sentiments ol a coiiimoa humanity which
formerly prevailed at Cliristinastide
seems to be entirely wanting in those
who''finance" and "manipulate" but
do no niniiiial work. The fact so often
commented upon that the "poor are
gr. wing poorer and the rich are getting rich.j." may not be so observable
re this country u* in tlie older settled
e .untried of civilization, but even here
thi rule holds giod in its small way
and men who have but recently left
the ranks of the workers to Hike up a
line which pays better, do not hesitate
to use their petty power lor their own
aggrandisement, heedless of Ce
wuunds they, cause by trampling on
liner sensibilizes than they ever pos
-es-e.l. Successful selfishness is now
so puffed up that not oven ihe memories which Christmas brings oa.i
,-pierce its hide-bound armor of self
'esteem, or in western phrase, logy
"swelled head." The words written
veins agour,e still true today: "Man's
inhumanity to man makes countless
thousands mout'n"1 Hut to-day the
inhumanity is hidden behind lhe smiling ina-k aud the outstretched J.and.
Not the inhumanity of tl.e lis..,'..- iho
prison, or lhe toil..re, but ,ni de.-o.i,
back-biting, tw hiudii.s- n .1 i ti:e.
lin du sieele aC'cumplis -.,.. --I- "I)
unto ail men us on wuuld tbe. sliotiiii
do unto you" was tue ij-iiniu nil ol
Him whose nativity we cilel.r.11.
But this command has been twisted
into something more soitible 10 ihe
nge ol pretence in which in live, "IJ..
thy ... igbl...r lest he do thee li.st,"
aifd lino thy neighbor to his fade,
but jeer ninl ridicule him behind liis
back. Hut thank heaven all men are
not liars, neither are they all hypo
crites, und tlie geiiuineuess and mu
eerily otic ineels with now and then
goes far to recoi cilc one to living out
his brief span here lielow. And what
will it mutter in a few yeais time?
When the tenement is laid away in
the ground at d the sentient being
steps into the presence of its maker
where all men a.e equal; whnt will it
malter ihen whether its lile on this
planet has bei n one of success and
duplicity or one ul uprightness and
failure? All the events of this exi-
tence will sink into utter insigmfi-
cini'S. Christinas as a time of festivity mav he a thing ol the pist to the
great majority ol pe.ps co.ipos.ig
the Cliris.ian (?) nations, but Chri&t-
masastlie accepted bi.thdayol the
world's Saviour should not-lea time
tor 1nel.1neh.1ly even for .1 man who
stands  entirely   alone   in the world
While to many 0! our readers nnrth
may take no part iu the celebration •(
tliis time honored (esiival, we sincerely
hope that some little ray of happiness
will illumii... the day, -0 that it may
nol be a misnomer to call it a "Merry
Christmus."
