forth every effort to live up to it.

ns showu by the  superintendent's report of cost oi operation.
lh.- Mayor considered thai when
I hey had now got things satisfactorily arranged, ii was important to the
city to have it closed.

'littered heavily from failure to complete this contract when it was ar -
ranged on a former occasion. This
mutter hod beeu talked over for live
years and uotiung done. Now they
had tiie opportunity to close it up.

Vld,  Kimberley approved ihut  Idea.
Aid. Maodonald said if ilm Hospital
Hoard Iuul not control over the doctors lm did not see how tbey could do
much better,
Aid. Wells favored making an an •
n'liil grunt  nnd .hnrgitiH  thom  for  lho
light and water.
Aid. Macdonald suggested asking
the city should be placed on tho
same husis us the companies who contracted with them.
Tho Mayor: That is what we are
asking for-
Aid. Macdonald: 1 don't thiuk they
understood that.
The Mayor favored giviug a grain .
charging ior the water, light and po -
wer, and let tho hospital charge the
city thu usual ratea.
Aid. Pradolini: Is ilm hospital a
public or private iutitution?
Aid. Wells: Il was originally stun -
ted us u public, institution ,but it is
oraotically n private one uow.
Aid. Macdonald aaid things hnd

The Mayor; Should we do more
then- pay the doctors us well,'.'
In reply to a question the Mayor
said there had been no bills from the
doctors for the hospital.
Aid. Macdonald: Them is not much
kick coming then if there ure no bills.'
iu reply lo Aid. Wells the city clerk
slated lhu doctors sued the cily for

The Mayor said the doctors aued lhe
eily for $7,50 for a case attondod by
Dr. Hamilton at the hospital,to whom

Christmas in the City
l -irii-tiuiif. lilOil haB passed into bis*
,c , with nothing in particular to
.listing, lull it from its predecessors .
The wtuiher wus beautifully tine, ilm'
cold. Many citizens indulged in sleigh
driving, while others took walks, but
the majority kept within doors, silling round cozy liros allowing the
warmth and comfort to instill into
them ihe spirit which Christmas
breathes over all. Tho city was very
quiet and there wus practically no
drunkenness ou the streets, und the
police report the town quiet und orderly except whon a few jovial spirits
making the most of the season, wore
wiling away the hours not wisely but
loo well. The duty of placing fellow
subjects in durance vile at such a season is a most unpleasant task, nun
the police, with their good judgment
und sense nf what is right in union: -
ing tho law, were able tn ensure a
peaceful night.
I'he services ut ull tin- churches were
woll attended.
Christmas has passed, a season "f
joy and gladness, where llie pust is
buried .and bygones are bygones, ainl
whon lhe hand of forgiveness nnd ol
friendship, mul charity is oxtonded lo
nil by all. Our own country enjoys
pence and prosperity, nml in Revel -
toko there ure feii who cannot enjoy
some measure of Christmas cheer, und
look forward to beginning soon nn-
other year in hope and confidence.
The nursing stall aad patients ''ele -
brated Christmas Tide with muoh enthusiasm, and the festival proved a
huppy time. All that could bo done
wus carried out to lighten tho lot of
the patients and to instill into their
lives the happiness whieh is always inseparable from this season uf the year
Decoration-, were profuse und muoh of
lhe   sadness      which   is   the  almost   in -
variable concomitant of the sick was
dispelled by the gladsome palliatives
During the afternoon ihe members
uf lhe Baptist and Methodist choirs
visited iho patients, rendering appropriate music, enrols and glees. llie
Ladies Guild presented each patient
with a dainty pot plant aud a suit -
able present while a large number of
gifts were sent in by the citizons. The
nurses entertained a number ot friouds
at dinner, a most enjoyable time being spent, The usual Christmas fart-
was provided for those patients who
were able to partake of it und no effort was spared to make the occasion
one of rejoicing.
Special attention was paid to the
inmates of the local jail and to those
whose fate it wns to drag through tho
long day without n touch of good
fellowship shared in by their more
fortunate brethren on tho outside For
these recompense was made in the
way of n more substantial bill of fare
than that usually served, and Christmas was made as merry and pleasant
n day ns could be under tho oiroum-
Every preparation for the festive
day wns made in all the hotels and
restaurants in tho city, Even the
most fastidious could liml no difficulty
ill getting a real first class dinner on
Christmas Day. Special menus had
been prepared and the tables were
laden witli all lho time-honored aim
daintiest delicacies, turkey, and plum
pudding being the centre of attraction. Each houso reports excellent
business wiih large crowds and iho
old old story was fittingly celebrated
everywhere. The decorations of many
ol the hotels were triumphs of art and
taste giving uu appearance of festival
and celebration.
From reports of tho city luorohunta
und the store keepers, tlio Christmas
trade, although slow iu tho commence
ment, brightened up exceedingly lo-
wards Christmas eve nud a large volume oi business was done, exceeding
by a fair margin that of Inst year.
Few buve reason to complain of this
year's Christmas, aud many state
that tho results lune been bettor than
anticipated, which speaks well for
tho prosperity of the town iu general.
-Money was freely eirouluted and the
keen, joyful enthusiasm of the buying
public during Christmas week, uud especially Christmas eve, was pleasant
to see. The general opinion round
the eity is that tho stock this year
put in by tho merchants was lhe best
that has been soon in Hevelstoke yet,
the seloctlon and quality being as
good as uui, be secured in miy big
eastern house. Never wns Ilm faot
more strongly demonstrated lhal our
people should buy ul home, than 'luring the rocout holidays and ihe merchants deserve all onoourngemonl Irom
the public.

Christmas at the Chnrches
The usual Christmas Day services
wore held at Sl. Peters church. A
large number of communicants attended the early celebration of Holy Communion. Matins and Holy Communion was held ui 11 o'clock, the service
being fully choral. Rev. C. A l'i"
cunior, in his sermon, referred to
Christmas Day as a day of giving,
taking as his text "Thanks be unto
God for his unspeakable gifts" from
the Curinthians. lt wus u da) of joy
when tho song of love wns snug by ull
Christian peoplo. He pointed out that
the principles oi Christmnstide should
bo instilled into nil, und forgiveness ,
peace and goodwill should be the keynotes for lho coming year. Let everyone wipe the slate clean uml turn rivor
n new leaf, forgetting nil grudges
against one's fullowmcn und banishing
,d will to our neighbors.. Christianity will sanctify our lives, innke our
iiomos rospectinilo and elevate the liv-
ng principles of lhe world. God sent
nis beloved son for our redemption,
nnd il should be our duly to take example und love eiieh other uitli pure
pourts. "Do unl" others as you
would thoy should do unto you" was
a Christmas motto, and if professing
Christians will turn to God lm will
pardon and cleanse them from -in.
und lho) will roceivo the groatcsl nt

ull poople to give their hearts and
their whole solves to God in appreciation of his unspeakable gifts.
Appropriate music was rendered, including the beautiful old Christmas
On Sunday the rector, in his evening sermon, referred t" the fact thut
this wns the last Sundny iu I'.'"'.', und
thai tin- opportunities ive hud lost
und neglected would never return,
Waste nf tune was -a terrible thing,
nnd stress wns laid nn the fuel that
during the coining year increased ef •
fort should be made in innke use nf
God's i_;ifts unci in return serve him
more devotedly nnil thankfully. There
were many who had neglected ihe services nf liml uml had been very lax in
attending church services, und he hoped that in 1111II there would be a greater interest taken in the church mul
lhal the people would tnke advantage
uf thon- greal Christian privileges.
Poople must rouse themselves und real
ize more their religious obligation?.
The church was prettily decorated
wilh white llowers-
Christmas Dav- coming «o close ou
to Sunday, it was decided lo hold the
festival on Sunday, consequently no
service was held ou Christmas Day.
I'ho Sunday morning service was well
attended, excellent aud inspiring music
Doing rendered liy the junior choir,
t'ho church was beautifully decoruied.
i'ho Rev. T. \V. Hall took as his text
iwo versos from Luke 11, in and 11.—
"Unto you a Saviour is born," and
I'ouimenccil by dwelling on the fact
that lho disappointment of the priests
serilics and phai'isees when Christ wus
revealed lirsi io the shepherds, was
greut, touching us that Christ will
nelp lhe lowly und meek. God revealed himself lirsi lo ihe shepherds then
lo lho sages. Chrisi's birth wus u
coueeded fact und it had worked a
great chnnge in ilm world,
cutting the chronology of history iu

The Civic [lections
t    Editor  Muil-Hernld,
.Sir,—I'leuse tilluw me space through
the columns of your valuable paper
for a little comment re the torth coming   :ivic election^.
In the tirst place it appears puyrfin^
strange t<> the average citizen thut
our Chief .Magistrate snouul personally
invite a few to meet our memoer at
t Iip L'lllO, while tuo .^elKirK Hall is
rented foi' our meetings. Tho citizens
are not all members of tho Club, anu
would foci inn of pJnce then1 witnout
an invitation. Why was that meeting
not called in the Selkirk Hall, anu
give u-:. tin' working class, a fair
ehauceV Now, Mr. I-.tutor, as an out
Conservative, I think nil the citizens
should have a chance to mention anything tiun1 think besi for our memoer
to brtng before parliament aud for the
gtiod welfare of" thin distri.-t.
I.ft u> In' broad in our viewH, and
allow all mon lie' rights and privil -
egeH wo like tn enjoy ourselves.. Thou
wny should a few men at ilio Hub,
undor tlio protoxt of a public mooting,
undcrtuko to cut and dry things—to
control ilu' distriel of Kovdstoke in a
hurry by l>rin;_rin_-! out all thr eandi ■
dates for mayor and aldornion, just to
make tho little band complete, to
please our young friend tho doctor, h
may be worthy of nolo that there
are many heavy tavpayor.-, and good
old pioneers, mon who havo liy then
enterprise and many years of consistent vork, proved their faith in Jiov -
elstoke and made it a city—men who
have some knowledge of our civic affairs, the public works, .and other administration? Why not give some «>f
ihe pioneers iho preference for mayor,
not throw lhom over hoard fora now
comer, a young man untried, though
ho may shine brightor in society.
There never was a time since incorporation whon wo needed meu elected
to represent us who are cautious and
with force of character to practise
economy, to protect the credit of tins
city, than at tho present time. This
is food for thought. The young doctor's right bower threatens to spoad
many thousands of dollars to put
parties out of business who would
dare to ofTer to b'ring other caudiadtes
into the field. Wo would like to know
am we in Canada or Russia? Has
tho doctor and his little chosen clique
got us by the throat, to force the
pill down us whether we like it 01
Who is behind tho guns? What can
all tiiis money talk by the gold-bugs
menu? Is it possible that they de -
sire to tompleto the bankruptcy oi
tho city, got it into the shoriff's hands
to have it sold undor the hammer, foi
three or four of those gold bugs to
buy   it,   and   have a   monopoly;     then
tell the common working folk Lo keep
off tin? grass? Now, Mr. Editor, as a
heavy rate-payer I should consider it
only fair to our citizens thut the mayor be brought out by public convention in tho City Hall, nol by aii\
ring or clique, then let oach war;
pick out their own aldermen. More.
the public might load to much civi.
nfonn. What about old timers? Whj
not call a public mooting in the citj
hall and  talk matters over?
I  thank you for your space.
Yours truly,
