Vanse, a well-known mining engineer, now in Cobalt, is at the
Windsor. In an interview he
said : "Cobalt is just at the beginning. We have more ore there
than anyone dreams of, and the
next two years will break all
records. For miles up north there
are mineral deposits, and Canadians, I think, have wakened up
pretty well to the real wealth of
the distriot."

Chicago Publisher Offers to
Take Over State Functions
as Private Business.
W. D. Boyce, the Chicago publisher
and a former resident ol Winnipeg, ol
the firm of Steen & Boyce first publishers of the "Commercial", has submitted to the United States postal
commission what he terms a proposition from financially responsible
business men to take over and operate
Ihe postal service as a private business
under government control. Boyce
declares that hs is backed by $50,000,-
000 capital and says "he and his associates" will perform all the services
now rendered tlie public by the post
olliee department, carrying out all
treaty stipulations aud contracts, and
pay all salaries and expense i necessary
taking tlie entire receipts as full compensation. He promises the people
these results:
First—Reduction to the pul lie by
one-half of all postage on first and
second class matter, or a rate of one
cent an ounce or fraction thereof on
first-class and one-hall a cent a pound
on secoad class matter, except country
free for weeklies as heretofore.
Second—The wiping out of the
delicit annually occurring in the operation of the postal service as a governmental department.
Third—To pay into the United
States treasury all net profits occurring over seven per cent, interest
on the capital invested.
Whenever Congress shall indicate a
illingness to entertain a proposition
for a man to organize under national
control and supervise, and furnish
ample sureties for the faithful performance of the terms of an agreement, Boyce states that he is prepared
to act. He says that he would require that Congress enact a law providing for the appointment ol a commission for control oi the postal
service, similar in importance and
power to that of tbe interstate commission now has in matters of transportation.
Considerable comment has been
made by many of the papers throughout Canada on the proposal to make
voting at elections obligatory on every
citizen entitled to vote says tbe Moos-
omin Spectator. For refusing to vote
the voter is to be fined or disfranchised
for a term of yeais, To claim that
compulsory voting will purge out political sins so common io parts of the
country during election times is unwarranted optimism The purchasable voter looking for the man with
the patty funds at his disposal will
doubtless vote, but compulsion will
not make him an honest man. The
honest voter will be honest daring an
election, the dishonest voter looking
for a bribe will secure that bribe if it
is possible to do so even at the risk ol
lieing exposed. A higher standard of
honesty and morality will do more to
cure election evils than any compulsory voting scheme.

Harry Shepherd Nominated to

—Hugh Fulton for Newcastle
Nanaimo, Dec. 14.—A new movement has been started here to
defeat the Socialist candidate. A
Labor party has been formed as nn
off-shoot ol the Liberal-Labor party.
At the party convention last night
Harry Shepherd received the nomination as a Labor candidate, and
is pledged to oppoee Hawthornthwaite and the McBride government.
At Ladyemith an Independent
Labor party convention held last
night, placed Hugh Fulton in
nomination for Newcastle district.
He will especially oppose Parker

member in the Provincial House,
The Conservatives as yet have
made no move, but it iB understood
they are awaiting the announcement of the date ol elections, when
they will plane candidates in the

Christinas is perhaps the most universal and popular festival of any
throughout the entire globe. Each
nation embracing Christianity has its
own particular method of keeping up
this old time least, but one and all
tend in the same direction, the main
object kept uppermost in the hearts of
all being that ol thanksgiving, peace
and goodwill. Our cousins in Australia and India are, like ourselves,
making their preparations for the
approaching festival, but how differently their customs lead them. With
then, the thermometer is standing at
115 degree! in the shade, all around is
dust and parched grouud, not a breath
of air stirring and above all tl.e tierce
sun pouring down its relentless scorching rays pitilessly.
Turn again to ourselves; what more
ideal winter could possibly be found
than one spent in British Columbia.
Snow, ice and frost have somehow always been associated with Christmas,
in story books and pictures, and it is
only natural that we should learn to
ove the snow aud frost. People living
oulside ot Canada have little or no
conception of the vast benefit the
white mantle of snow i, to tliis country
during the winter. The only impression they form of it is that it must lie
very, very cold and a horrible nuisance.
But what would Canadians do without the snow? It entails no physical
discomfort, except to the poor, and
even Ihen it seems to awaken kind impulses among those better oft', aud the
poor and destitute are looked after as
they never would be looked after but
lor the knowledge that they must
otherwise surely suffer. Happily we
are all living in Revelstoke well supplied with this world's good things
and the very snow and frost seem to
suggest the corresponding warmth and
cosey fires indoors. A Canadian
Christmas enables the merchants to
display their novelties suitable to the
time, and we in Revelstoke have every
reason to be proud ol our stores this
year, ts the hundred and one things
tastefully displayed there far surpass
all those ol previous years. The snow
lends itself to beautify the whole oity,
the delicate tracery of trees and
shrubs with their white pall having a
prettier effect than even the work of
human hands, This glittering counterpane it likewise the robe with which
nature protects the growing crops
which would be ruined by the frost,
but for the snow. It sends the ruddy
glow ol health to the cheeks ol the
Canadian child and with its lister,
the ice, is the means of affording
healthful amusement for the young
men and women who delight in sleighing or skating.
In very contrast to the warmth ol
the fireside it inculcates a love oi
home and good cheer. The average
Canadian is proud ol Canada's snow-
in the winter time.
Representatives of Different
Religious Bodies in Conference—Divines are Confident
of Success.
Toronto, Dec. 14.—One hundred
representatives nf the Methodist, Presbyterian and Oongregationalist church
es ol the Dominion are assembled in
the school ruom of tl.e Metropolitan
Methodist church to continue consultations about the basis ot church union.
Dr. Carmen p.esides.
In view of the action taken by tbe
general assembly ol the Presbyterian
church at its last session in London,
it was decided to appoint a committee,
consisting of lour Methodists, lour
Presbyterians and two Congregation-
alists to conduct negotiations witii the
Anglic.n and Baptist churches, regarding tlie possibility of tbe Baptists
and Anglicans accepting an invitation
to take part in the conferences.
The Baptists wished the union
movement God-speed, but did not say
whether they would at present join in
it. The responses of the Anglican
bishops were cordial and hopeful, but
as tl.e general synod of Ihe Clinch of
England wilt not meet until 1909, no
action could be taken by that church
until then. These matters were lelt
without discussion in tlie hands ol the
Br. J. R, Inch, superintendent of
education for New Brunswick, stated
that the people of that province are
mostly in favor of union. He is a
strong advocate of it and believes progress is being satisfactorily made.
The Baptists and Anglicans, he thinks,
may join later.
C. Bell, oi Halifax, stated that the
general feeling is iu favor of union,
A factor in encouraging tlie older provinces is tbe unanimous feeling for
union in the west. There will be no
forcing in the matter, he said, but the
outlook was very hopeful, as things
seemed all to be progressing favorably,
The Rev. Principal Gordon, of
Queen's university, Kingston, said
there set med to be an opportunity in
Canada today for the union ol various
sections of the Protestant churches,
such as hod not been afforded in any
country for a hundred years, perhaps
not since the reformation.

Uncertain and coy. This seems to
describe the attitude of the large pro
portion of folks who have been looked
upon as likely candidates in the forth
coming municipal elections. So much
is this the esse that this bids fair to
be the record hang-hack year. Many
have, by denying all idea of running
fur the mayoralty, proclaimed themselves a- candidates. The outlook
certainly does not seem very brisk,
Several members of the present council
have signified, unofficially of course,
their intention to hold themselves as
candidates for the mayoralty. Notwithstanding all the secret interview
ing committees that have been at work
there are not yet enough candidates
definitely in the field to be able to
forecast with any accuracy the whole
munioipal ticket.
Down town there are minors of
ticketB and rival tickets, on which a
very hot contest may be fought, but
so far they do not materialize. The
same applies to the up town wards
and we would not be in the least sur
prised ii tome unknown or unrnen
tioned candidate fur mayor should
suddenly come out and sweep the field
If the cr ntest il to be warm, it will at

will be confronted with several very
important questions concerning tlie

Tbe Christmas season is one ol
universal joy and festivity, the period
of the year when young and old give
themselves up to unmitigated and
unalloyed pleasure. Tbe old, forgetful of their advancing years enter inii)
the amusements of thc young with
zest and for the time the outside cares
of lhc world are forgotten. While engaged in the pursuit of pleasure ourselves we are apt somewhat to forget
our Ies. fortunate brethren, who for
many reasons are unable to join in
the festivities of the Benson. Happily,
in Revelstoke, there are none who
cannot in some way provide a roof
over their heads and who are without
the means of purchasing food or even
luxuries, but theie are some amongst
ub who are incapacitated Irom taking
the lull advantage of the pleasures
that are customary at Christmas. We
refer to the patients in the Hospital,
who will have to depend upon the
generosity and thoughttulness of the
citizens, mainly, for their share of the
joys and goodwill of the season, There
are none who deserve more n bright
and happy time than those who,
awny Iro.n relatives and friends would
spend a poor Christmas indeed, ii it
wore not for the efforts and energies
of the Hospital staff and the genera-
ity ol the people, ll not only behoves
us now to give generously und willingly such a6 lies within our power to the
hospital and help the patients there to
enjoy their Christmas this year, but it
is a duty that is bounden to us all to
help the sick and suffering, co-operate with the hospital staff in procuring ior tlie patients some of the
pleasures of life so closely associated
with the season ar.d to extend charity
with a liberal hand in this direction.
In doing this we shall feel that we can
all enter into our own joys and pleasure*
more heartily, knowing that we have
been instrument il in making others
happy and thnt we have fulfill d our
duty as Christians to our less fortunate brethren.

efficient and satisfactory service for
boll, power and lighting, an auxiliary
power should be provided, to be operated in cases of accidents, repairs,

day lor power and one of say 250 h.p.
to run during the night in  lighting
In the case ol one laige engine the
usual normal friction load of the engine would be always carried and
when running at part load the greatest economy could not bo obtained,
but it would not pay on this account
to purchase the high class engines.
Another matter to consider is the
damage to boilers by rusting when not
in use. Unless particular pains were
taken to protect them.
I am inclined to thc opinion that if
a first-class gaB engine and producer
plant as belore descrbed can 1-c obtained at the price, $17,000, in place
it will he the wisest investment.
3rd. In estimating tlie cost ol producing power and light the following
Bhould bo taken into cunsi leration:
Expenses ol operation,
Cost of repairs and renew ils,
Interest on plant.
As the C. P. R. Co. would require
80 h.p. and the city is at present using
180 k.w. or 240 h.p, the com pai y's
sharo for the 80 h p. would 1 e about
one-fourth of the whole cost.
As I have not the actual cost of the
present works or the detailed ast of
operation, I have estimated these two
items us closely as possible from the
yearly financial statement and report
of If. B. Smith on the original value,
and would of coin-Be be open to correction slightly on these amounts.
Expenses  ol operations extra lor

Financial Difficulty Denied by
Head Official.
Articles have appeared recently in
several papers regarding the financial
condition ol the fraternal order of
Woodmen of the World. Tho secretary of the local camp has written to
C C Hodgins, M.P.P, the head Con.
Com. for particulars of the supposed
unsound condition of their affairs.
In reply to the letter Mr. Hodgins
states that there is no ground for
apprehension, but on the contrary tbe
standing and finances of the Order are
today in a healthier state than at any
previous time in ils history. The order lieing under Dominion incorporation, happen, il to be under the investigation of the Royal Commission
sitting now 11 tee into the workings
ol all insurance companies doing
business under Dominion charter. No
fault hat been f und with the met In ill
ol doing business whatever. The
Commission had their actuary make
a calculation lo ascertain the legal
reservs liability ol the Order, or in
other words to ascertain how much too
little was being collected. It wus
upon this point particularly the Order
was examined and taking the standard set, the figures could not be disputed, as all depends on the basis used,
Now, judged Irom the same standpoint there are lew societies in Canada
acttinri.y solvent, constquently the
Woodmen il necessary to adjust rates,
can do so more easily than any other
society, The progress and position of
the Woodmen are stronger and more
permanent than ever before and there
is no caute for any anxiety of the
Order becoming financially embarrassed. Last year there were assets of
over $157,374 and this year they have
increased proportionately.
Deserted Infant Found Snug
and Warm in Valise.
Winnipeg, Deo. 13.—Snug and
warm and soundly sleeping in a telescope valise, a little child ot six weeks
has been found in a stable on St.
Johns avenue this morning. Every
precaution had been made (or the
comfort and security ol the child.
There were plenty ol clothes in the
valitc, it wat placed out ol the dralt,
while warn, bricks kept up the heat
and a kole was out in the top to admit fresh air. There was a bottle ol
milk where the baby could reach it,
The deserted inlant bad evidently gone
quietly to sleep, unconscious that it
was not in its own home. The child
was well dressed but none of the
clothing bore a mark by which it
could be identified and the parentage
ol the child is a complete mystery.

From Our Own ('orrsppendent,
Music lovers in our midst are in
raptures over a new piano which Mrs.
Sullivan, of the Royal hotel, has just
purchased from Messrs. Williams, of
Oshawa. The instrument, which cott
nine hundred dollars, it modelled alter
the Louis XV style in African Mahogany, inlaid with satinwood and has a
tone of rare sweetness.
During the mild spell latt week Ml.
L.T.Morris launched a new motor boat,
which, at the gracefully glided down
Ihe ways wss named the Ida by little
Mits Morris, who by moans ol a tricolor ribbon, deftly broke a bot. le ol
champagne over the bow. As the
golden fluid mingled with the waters
of Shuswap Lake, much regret was
expressed by some Indian spectators
at the use to which it wai put, feelings
with which we deeply sy.npatl.ited,
and even at the last moment suggested
that a bottle ot gasoline cocktails be
substituted, but the innovation was
Irowned upon on account ot the
bouquet. Tl.e boat, which is twenty
leet long by five foot beam, was built
by Mr. Morris from tbe design of
Mestrs Brooke.Bay City, is fitted with a
four h.p.. four cylinder English engine
hat accommodation for twelve passengers and during next teaton will be

Tilt: mald'a room is seldom given
much thought, but In these days
when maids are so hard to got,
and tr keep, the wise housekeeper will do what sin* can to make her
■ervant's room inviting.
The room should, above all, bo simple,
■o tlmt it can easily be kept clean. If
the plaster of the wall Is In good condition, ii tinted wall Is ns nice a.*- anything,
lint ling makes a good clean lloor covering, and a rug or two on this Improves
the room very much.
Enamel beds are the best for such a
room, bui often the old-fashioned
wooden beds, Btich ns that shown In tho
Illustration, tin.) their way to the maid's
room, asiyoung housekeepers nre learning thatflthey are not good ar*,
The white bench shown Is-a good idea
for a mald'B room, as upholstered pieces
shoulfUhe avoided.
Often^the room has u slanting roof.
In papering such a room use a tiny all-
ovei paper, such as Is shown In the 11-
lustratl n. This room was originally a
large attic, but has recently been partitioned, so that now each maid has her
own room, but still can easily converse
with the other,
Tbe bedspn nd Is made of 12^-cent cretonne. Three pieces have been neatly
Joined together, so that the scams are
almost lm] erceptlble. The bedspread
cosl less than $1.15, and is prettier than
the ordinary white ones, besides not
■oiling so readily.
Another Illustration shows a dainty
bedroom-with u pretty little striped papi r. which Is run to abmu a foot below
the ceiling, and Is finished with a strip
of tu-' paper used ae a binder. The cctl-
inc paper is white moire, and comes
.down to meet thc wallpaper. Tho furniture in this room has been painted
white, and tho chairs with their simple
lines and cane seats aro very appropriate, Notice the little shelf above the
washstand.    It certainly adds a pretty

A maid's room -should never be over-

s<.motim-s make the mistake of using
the maid's room as u storeroom or box-
We must remember that her littlo

Mrs. Felix-How dark the room Is. I

Ermlntrude—Deat mother, you should
ask me to put up the shade. You know
lt Is my place to perform such little
services for yuu.
Mrs. Felix—Your work is more Important, dear.   Vou   must   not   put   it

Ermlntrude (tunilni* from th" de-
-Ftruction of the shade, and taking the
box)—It looks Ilk flowers (blushing).   I wonder—

How  perfectlv  lovely.    I  wonder—

Mrs. Felix—Your father will excuse
you, Ermlntrudo.
Ermlntrude—I know he will, dear,

laughed Sally Blair, hei guest.
"Vou know the only reason you cling

In buying bric-a-brac or vases. It's the

PARIS, '06,
RUST .,e French f"i* meeting
pr imptly every emergency of
fashb ii, and usually without
much expenditure, The latest tax
upon this ingenuity was the discovery oi ,. way to accomplish the present high coiffure, which must round
upward without other break than ita
great regular waves. Hence, no more
of the faithful side comb, rendered
useb ss by Its weight.
The French "coiffeur," tints tried,
was not for a minute found wanting.
To appreciate hla efforts it Is best to
describe minutely the cause that led
up to such satisfactory results
The primary part of this latest
coiffure follows out a method that
has been for some time In use*. A
part is described around ilu* head,
about three Inches frmn the edge of
the hair, dividing off the centre portion. This latter Is, as usual, arranged in a tight knot, not unlike a pincushion on top, while the outside portion much ruffed in back, ts taken up
very loosely, though its ends are
tightly twisted about the top knot.
French women prefer to uso a
'"crepe" of false hair Instead of exhausting their patience on a careful
combing out, for iu careless combing,
not ruffing, which is unjustly blamed
for it, does the breaking usually occur,
Americans, however, seem to retain a
certain disdain for false hair, looking at
It in an entirely different light from
their French sister, whu hopes that you
will adjudge her coiffure pretty, and
gives no further thought to you or to Its

Here are somo facts and rules that
may help you:
To Gain Flesh Generally.
Absolute freedom from care and anxt«i#,
At least ton hours' Bleep out of every twenty-four, ln addition to this, naps during
tho day If possible. This Bleep must always
he natural. Nothing ta -t-u bad for the appearance and general health as sleep induced by anodynea ■ r narcotics in any form.
The diet Bhould be liberal and should consist largely of food containing starch and
sugar; (potatoes, fresh, Bweet butter, milk,
cream, frulis cooked and aei-ved with sugar,
alt vegetables containing atarch an*i sugar,
such as corn, aweet potatoes, beans, peas,
foods of the macar iiii and spaghetti kinds,
fish and oysters, Ice cream, deaaerta withuut
pastry; plenty ot outdoor lire and a moderate amount of exercise. Bleep hi a well-
ventilated mom. I do not believe any one
can gain flesh if there is an Internal disease; certainly not If there is any tendency
to dyspepsia or liver trouble. Where th** pa-
tlcnt ts plump tn one iiirt uf the body »nd
falls In another, a gymnast to course Is advised. There Is mahlng better than bicycling, unk'BB it may be a regular gymnastic
course In order to pursue tho bitt.'r properly, the pati.-iit is advised to gn to a llrst-
claia gymnasium, nutunit to an examination
and iitkt* the exercises prescribed by ihe attendant ptosiclan. These gymnasiums, at
moderate prices, may be found In a town of
any size In the country.   Where lh    ' —'
any size In the country,    nm.- .  .

■body, swimming Is alsu an excellent exorcise, Walking is always wholesomo. The

Before attempting to use the physician's prescription, I advise you to take
steps toward restoring the health of
your hair. Try this tonic and see If you
cannot arrest the falling of your hair.

Apply to the rents of the hair with a. soft
sponge once or twice a day.
Why do you object to your gray hair?
There Is nothing nmre beautiful, oven
in a woman of your age, than soft,
thick, glossy gray hair, wilh perhaps a
wave in It. Why not try to attain this,
nnd noi tamper with dyes? With care
you can bring your hnlr to this enviable
condition, providing, of course, the disease yuu speak uf lias been cured.
To Reduce the Ankles
Would you please tell me what chemicals I should use and whal exerclsea are
good to reduce the ankles and make the
calves smaller? I am very willing to diet
If you think that also advisable. M. B.

On Care of the Face and Hair
Also, kindly give me a remedy* to make
mv hair thick, aa It la very, very thin.
T,  A. J.
Try the pomade to reduce fat, given
in the answer to "M, B." Continue the
applications of cold water, With almost all exercises, remedies and treatments, persistence Is the hev to the situation. And the length of time before
success Is reached is almost always Indefinite. 	
lielow Is a tonic that I think will help
the growth of your hair:
Tea Hali* Tonic.
Black  tea as a basis for hair tonic ll
■successful In many cases.   Formula:
Hav rum 2 ounces; glycerine. 2 ounces:
ak'uh'-d. 2 ounces; infusion of black tea, 10
ounces. „  .
Mix and perfume to suit. The tea Infusion should be made very strong, say an
ounce of tea to ten or twelve ounces of
bulling water. Lot lt steep for twenty
minutes, then atand till cool; strain and
add the other Ingredients; apply with a
soft sponge to the roots of the hair. It will
darken blond hair.
Hair Turning Dark
Will you please let me know what 1 shall
do for my hair? It Is losing iu natural
color. It was brown and It Is gettlni*. very
dark. I also have several gray hairs. 1
dun't like to uso a dye o* any Kind, I would
like to know of a |ood shampoo,    J. 8, M.
I would advlBe you to use the following shampoo, which will do much toward keeping your hair light:
Shampoo for tight Hair.
White castlle soap, In shavings 1 ounce;
water. 2-t ounces: pola.«slum carbonate. 30
grains; borax, 12<J grains; cologne water, 2
ounces; hay rum, I ounces.
Dissolve the aoap In the water and add
the other Ingredient!. Rub well into the
roots, ntnse thoroughly In several waters.
Then dry carefully.
Use this shampoo once In two weeks,
If such frequency makes the hair too
dry I will give you a lotion to keep it
soft and of proper nlllness. Do not
trouble about your gray hairs, That Is
the least of Ills that cuuld befall yuur
Treatment for Bunions
1 have been using one of your recipes for
banlvns. It is carbolic a**ld, glycerin.; and
iodine. It hsa tnken all the soreness out of
my bunion, tut it hasn't taken the Dwelling
down. Will you please tell me If it Is enly
to tal.e the screness out? Or can you tel"|
me something tc take the swelling uut toot
A. O.
The swollen Joint Is due to the long
pressure and irritation to which it has
been subjected. It has grown uut of
shape. With patience I think you oan
bring the joint to Its natural size. Wear
a very soft, comfortable slice. Never
allow the l-aast irritation or exposure
to Inclement weather,  Bathe every day
with   clear   alcohol,   alternated   with
rubbings of pure culd cream.
A Red Blotch
Will you kindly glvo me something to remove a red blotch on the side *f lho none.
It having been there fur eight montha, nnd
greatly oblige F. W. B.
I do not understand the nature of this
annoyance. Is th.* skin smooth and unbroken? And what Is the degree of redness-dull, bright or bluish? Give mc
more details before I can suggest a
No Danger of Discoloring
Will yuu kindly tell me whether your hair
grower of bay rum, witch hazel, salt, hydro*
chloric add and magnesia will cutis.* white
hairs to turn yellow or disc |.,r ihem?
My hair Is jusi swlnkbd wiih white, while
I need sume good i inlc to maku it grow, mid
yuur recipe aid look goud, And will you
als • kindly lell mu how much magnesia Is
to bo used? Mrs. II. P, L.
The tonic you mention will not discolor gray hair. This happens when
gray hair is not sufficiently washed. Because of its light color it requires abuut
twice as much care na darker shades.
1 cannot tell you the exact amount of
magnesia required in the preparation of
this formula: if you are not sure us tu
how to handle It, you might better ask
your druggist to ml the prescription. He
will know Just what to do.

One clay Nokomis cut a smooth branch irom Wahdoop, the Aider bush, anu made a nice, large
Pep-e^-un, cr "Music-whistle," for Little Growling Bird. She put a dried pea inside of it so that
it would rattle around, but could not get out. Then she gave it to the little boy and he blew his breath
into it as h:r-l as he could blow. It gave out a clear "ttilling" note that sounded very much like 0-
suhwe-Pe-nayshins, Yellow Bird, tlie Canary, but much louder and shriiler. Little Grov-ling Bird

He befian blowing it as loudly as he could (aTiiitie ooys wi|i), until Nokomis couldn't stand it
any longer and sent him down to thc hank of the stream, Dancing Water, to play. Aundak, of
course, went along too, and boasled, as hr went, oi what a fine singer and whistler he was—"once

REVELSTOKE, B. C. Revelstoke & McCullough Creek
Hydraulic Mining Co.
A geneiul meeting of the stockholders of tbe Revelstoke and McCullough
Creek Hydraulic Mining Co. ivos held
last Thursday night, to tiansact general business and to elect officers for
the year. The minub s ot the lust
meeting were adopted as read. The
lollowing directors were appointed:
Charles F. Lindmark, president) J,
G. Harris, Duluth, viee-preaiden'; J.
D. Sibbald, secy.-treiis., and managing
director; J. P. Sutherland, Murray
Hume, C. M. Field, J.T. Mlohnud,
Duluth; M. Thomas, Duluth; W.J.
Botes, directors. J. II. Jackson was
appointed auditor for the company.
J. 1), Sibbald snid that the balance
shcit nnd general report would be
short y issued, No further business
ol an imp -riant nature vvns .11 cussed
and the meeting adjourned,
The directors report that most satis-
(nolo y nork has been done and pro
gicss has i cen made on the property
ami the lui ure looked most promising.
Only a comparatively smnll portion
has been cleaned up nnd tbe result,
wns lar biggrr than anticipated, The
cost ol running nud operating has
been comparatively B.nall and when
work commences in the spring several
improvements In the methods of washing will be used, The company is a
long way on the right side financially
so that the returns to the stockholders
should be very considerable. Thc want
of a good trail Irani Laporte is badly
lelt and since Ibis district is becoming
more and more exploited not only loi
mineral but also Ior timber, there is
certainly every reason why the government should help out the private
corporation in their work of dev lop
ment. The Big Bend country is opening up into a most important district
and with more conveniences of access
Irom Revelstoke would well repay the
Government Ior any money expended
on trails and roads.
The curling rinks were used lor the
first time on Thursday night and the
familiar roar of the stones will be good
music to ninny who have heen onx
iously waiting lor the ice to get in
shape, to get going for anotherBeason-

Public Catholic Worship now
Paris, Dee. 12 —This is a historic
day for France. The struggle wl.ijb
began in 1880 with the banishment ol
the Jesuits, ended today with the legal
rupture ot the bond which for practically a thousand years had united
church and state,
Ry reluBing to make the required
declaration under tl.e public meeting
law of 1881, public Catholic worship,
except by Schismatic organization,
tomorrow becomes illegal.
The scenes in somo of the churches
were touching. Not in years bad
there heen such on attendance at
mass. The number of women especially, conspicuously indicating the religious indifference of tbe male population. Although seven-eights ol the
inhabitants of this city nominally are
Cal holies, in no parts of the city were
the churches crowded, Even at the
cathedral, where a solemn high mass
was celebrated, tbe edifice was only
hill tilled.
1'auis Dec. 14.—There was an impressive response yesterdny morning
to Ihe clergy's appeal to their parishioners to attend the lirst masses celebrated outside ol the pale of the law.
Everywhere the front gates were closed, but worshippers entered through
the side porch. The buildings were
well tilled. In several places there
was music, but nowhere was there nny
attempt to interfere with the services
or create disturbances. There were
policemen standing outside the porches of the chinches to prevent disorder,
while policemen iu plain clothes on
duly inside simply noted the infrac-
ti .us of the low, with the object ol
making reports to the justices of the
peace. Formal charges were entered
wherever muss was celebrated, except
at the churches oi St. Jean lT.vangelie
and St. Blaise de Charonne, at Peie la
Chaise, where parishioners mode application last evening tu hold services
under the law ot 1881.
Premier Clemeneiiti, replying to a
question in the Chamber of Deputies
ns to the reason for the expulsion of
Mgr. Montnguini, said it was because
oi bis complicity with prominent
clergy ol Paris, against whom proceedings were pending lor inciting
church-goers to rehllion. Interference by foreigners, on orders from
Rome, in the politics of [France, he
declared, was not permissible.
The premier, amid thunders of applause, tersely summed up the situation, declaring that the government's
conciliatory propositions tu-.var.Is the
churcll had been exhausted and that
it had been decided to leave the onus
ou Rome in the luture.
"It lhe church wi-hes' the premier
ntinued, "there is still time to avoid
a battle. We offer her the law ol
1881, made for all Frenchmen and
submitting thereto, she will have
peace, but otherwise, by seeking us,
she will find us."

Canada will soon Lead the Way
Thero are not a lew Canadians who
still leel it incumbent upon themselves to apologize for their country
when in the presence of the American
magnate, tbe disposition being increased hy the plausible self approbation of the average American citiz«n.
It is time, however, that Canadians
should cultivate a spirit ot national
pride. In no other niat'er than that
ot population need Canada bow to our
cousins at the south and even iu the
matter of population, time wili doubtless work the miracle for Canada, that
she has done for the other country.
In climate, resources, territorial extent
and a thousand othcr things Canada
is the making of the biggest nation,
at least, upon American soil. "That
Canadians should realize this." suys
the Westminster News, "and begin the
cultivation of a national spirit and the
fostering ol a national pride goes
without saying. In size, potential
wealth, present spirit and capability
ol indefinite expansion the Dominion
need fear comparison with no country
wherever situate."

Minister of Agriculture, issued lust
week, gives some interesting details
regarding the shipment ot llo r lor the

of tbe 111,610 bags of Hour forwarded,
no less than 5,600 were Iron. British
C diimbia. The wheat was grown and
milled in the Okanagan valley and
being plainly marked with the place
of output have proved a most valuable

order to enable the Japanese sufferers
to undertake cooking the new food
stuff, the report states that ''six yeast
cakes and ten copies of directions for
breadmaking, printed in Japanese
