Nomination
iWc understand that Aid. MeKinnon
las been nsk«d by a number of rtite -
layers to accept nomination for the
•position of Mayor for the ensuing year
l>ut as yet has given no definite ans -
ewer.
Aid. MeKinnon has1 served four years
on the city council, one year as tho representative of ward one and tho past
three years representing ward two.
For some time he has helel the important otlice of chairman of the Finance
committee.
A resident of about tifieen years
standing and one oi the be»l known
und mo>t generally respected business
men, Aid. MeKinnon has long been
marked out in many quarters aa a suit
able mun for civic honors of the high-
est degree, und it is not in the leasl
surprising to und lhat hu should have
been uppronch'-d in regard io nomination tor the forthcoming Mayoral election. We hope in un early issue to be
able to report that lie ha- decided to
accept the invitation to become a candidate.
Everyone in town know- Aid. MeKinnon, and knows him favorably,
whilst he has ho.-ts oi friends und admirers al-o outside the immediate vicinity of Revelstoke, His outstanding
characteristic, in matters commercial
and municipal alike, is in iepeudene-e.
witli which i- happily coupled a courage of conviction which ensures the
plain expression of his honest views.
How valuable those qualities would
be in tho person oi a Mayor ratepayers
will readily appreciate.
ALD.   HOWSON  A   NON   STARTER.
The nam.' of Aid. llowson, the acting mayor, has naturally been mention
ed in connection wuh tin- elections. Interviewed this morning, Aid. Howson
said that he iii.l not figure on staiuliug
for municipal office in a.iy capacity ut
the approaching election.
"As you Irnow," he said, "my health hasbe n unsatisfactory im -ome time
past. I un Imping to take a long holiday tup in id i in the hope of benefitting n health thereby, and on account "i tlmt contemplated prolonged
absence from ihe city .lo not figure upon seeking election iu any capacity
next  year.''

it as 1 do not see how 1 could spare the
time necessary for the proper discharge
of the duties of such an important position."
Tbe alleged cold storage trust has
been Illumed for nearly everything,
but they hnve yet to be churged with
holding tons ,,f radium ior an nd -

An explorer claims to have discovered the cradle ot the human race in
Cent nil Africa. The fact that it is
situated in a rocky country a^'ds to
the probability of his story.
A Chicago woman who bas been

One nighl as Santa Claus Was sitt -

rap /it the door. As be opened it iu
Came the post-man. He bunded bim
(Santa; u bundle of letters some torn
and some nol. As Suutu opened them
he saw one dity torn envelope which he
opened immediutely and saw the following:—
Dear Santa.—

While Sunta was looking for tins little girl's house, he met with a curious

merrily he heard a strange sound in a
house which he was passing upon loo>-

could see no lights in the bouse from
which it came. He went in but iouIJ

So   thc little boy     went  to the desk

it up the chimney where  Santa's  dove

LAURIER PREACHES
SEPARATION DOCTRINE
Would Have Canada Shirk Her Duty to the
Empire.—The Object in View Not to Be
Concealed.—Policy False to British Connection Advocated.
Y. M. C. A. NOTES FIRE DANGERS
IN B.C. FORESTS
Europe is an armed camp. Its leading nations upend from a third to a
half oi their revenues in munitions of
War. I don't believe uny one oi ihem
contemplates agression. They arc ouly di'trustful, and because they dare
nat join hands and work together for
good—this iswhat they e-all "The European Concert." Sir, it is nol a concert but a furnace, and yet it is into
tbis furnace that the government
Would lead us. If I speak strongly ou
this   Subject it i-   because    I    believe    ill
the principle ot Liberalism* the piiue -
iple of uiitonomy and self-government',
the ouly policy which will ever be ac-
cepted by the Canadian people.—Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, ut Hamilton, Nov. 12,
I'J Id.
We have ever held the \iew, aud it
has been strengthened by events of thu
pust two years—that in his heart ot
hearts Sir Wilfrid Laurier was u separatist—in plain words, that he aimed at
iho severing of British connection.
Muny Liberals, who no doubt were sin
cere, resented the charge whicli wo
mude, ami hurled back the term with
scorn. Tothose we commend a carciul
perusal of the above words, credited to
Sir Wilfrid by the Toronto Globe, iu
his recent speech at Hamilton, if such
words do not involve the doctrine oi
separation from Great Britain, then
ihey mean absolutely nothing. Ho
tells us lhat the European concert to
which Britain is, and must be a party
i- a "Furnace," und aids, "ii is into
this furnace that the government
would lead us." In other words we
are with the Empire in peace, but
when the dogs of war uro let loose wc
must seek shelter ina vague and misty theory of local autonomy. We shall
continue to enjoy the ri_hts and privileges of citizens of the Empire, but wo
do not want any of its duties or rospnn
Bibilities. There is no use mincing
Words in defining such a doctrine, li
we are not prepared to stand or fall
with thc Empire in times of|>eril, we
cannot remain with i- in times of peace
The man wii,, advocates -ti h a policy
i   false to British connection.
WHAT WE OWE IT TO.
Sir Wilfrid goes on glibly talk ahout
Canada relying upon arbitration for
the settlement oi international dis -
pules, instead of upon wur and the pre
paralion of war, and tells us that thus
far we have been immune from the
"mad competition of araments." But
to what do we owe our immunity? Surely to the mighl of Britain inthe North Sea. If the danger of war has never been ours in recent years we have to
thank the British taxpayer, who has
cheerfully borne the burden of our defence.    It is Britain, which throughout
ihe nineteenth century maintained an
Imperial navy, lhat enabled what were
then the Colonies, lo walk in the ways
ot peaoe. Sir Wilfrid lays stress upon
the effect, but avoids consideration of
the cause.
MUST FA.CE FACTS.
In l'.'iir with questions of rati u
al defence we must not take up ideal-
Istictheories, but rather face facts
hs'they are known to exist. We must
admit (hat neither Hague conferences,
nor arbitration treaties have succeed-
ed in touoh'lng those absolutely vital
mailers over which European States
fight, and over whi.h we are convinced
the peoples ol this continent would al-
.-'o  light  if  need arose.
We will ask Sir Wilfrid Laurier whether nny Canadian government would
dare run the risk of submitting to arbitration a claim by Japan that her
citizens should have the free right of
Immigratinn into the Dominion. We
venture to assert that Canada could
only consent to arbitrate upon this
issue if she knew for certain tiiat her
own contentionwould be upheld, and
thai the court would really be constituted for upholding it in the way least
olii-nsiie to Japanese pride.
TIRED OF SUCH TALK.
The people ot this country are sick
and tiled of all this talk about "immunity from armaments and war,1'
"Colonial neutrality," "Naeionul uu -
tonomy, ' "tribute ' and the liie. Just
so tongas we remain wiihin the Empire, we must shoulder it's responsibilities liie men. If n*e ilo not wish to
shoulder these, then il is timo for us
tola-e the only other course, and cut
loose f()r ourselves. It is the latter
course mat *-*ir Wilfrid prefers, but he
has not the lourageto como outside
the  lines of  Torres \ edras and Say so.
Canada e'annot isolate from the rest
of th.' world. We niLBt shoulder our
responsibilities like other nations. Wo
do not and never Can enjoy the option
of keeping free from the vagaiies of
that "furnace.'' Europe finances civilization. European tra-de penetrates every community. How long would Canada continue her presenl prosperous
march forward, If ihe Uow oi cupital
from Europe were suddenly cut ofT?
The slightest threat that a great War
is coming in Europe sets our financial
institutions Bhaking and paralyses our
industrial development. In defense, as
in "the high cost of living'' wo are one
with mankind. We are aflectcd by tho
rising temperature of th? "furnace"
whether we like it or not; and the only
thing that lies before us .is to con -
tribute our rightful share to the supremacy of the British Empire and the
British navy—the greatest human ag -
ency for  ih"  preservation  of  peace.

THIRD PRIZE
There wu- a cold wind blowing that
Christmas eieas Santa Claus prepared for his fast, one night's, long journey all over Ihe world, decorating
Christmas trees, atM| Tilling thn sleeking ihat good children bung up, with
dainty presents, lo make theii Christ-
mn> happy. Santu OlaUs pul on his
fin-coal, fur cap, fur mitts nnd big fur
lin«l calf--kin boots, took a long rein-
dew -kin whip in IiJf hand, and was
icady.
He went out into the cold, frosty
uir, and climbed Into his sleigh with
a bundle of  t,,yB on  hi>  ba' k      in     a
big sack. With a whistle ho started
oil nnd soon reached a finall town. San
ta Claus had magic power, and be
jumped right up on the top roof and
went in      lUch a  hurry,     that in  going
•down thechimney, he got a mouthful of
soot. But, worse than tbat, when he
got down, be found he hud gone down
ihe wrong chimney. He found no stockings, and no Christmas tree. On going out he found lhat it was un old
boarding house lo rent. However, he
hoped for better luck next time, and
his wish camo true. House after house
he went into and filled stockings after stockings, with pretty presents. He
look out his watch, an I saw it was
nearly three o'clock in the morning.
Knowing lhal he had been nU over the
world by now, he turned for homc,and
afu*r calling "Merry Christmas to all''
he sped away home, with an empty
sack, only to start in making a new
lot of   toys for Christmas 1014.

HIGH-CLASS
CONCERT
A real musical treat is piomi-ed by
the program for Mi-s Tryphoso Parker's concert, to be held in the Empress
theatre on Monday night. Tho program in full is published elsewhere and
a pcieisal of the names of the vocalists
and the selections they have chosen to
present will    be sufficient  t" Oonvinoe
any reader of the quality of the fare
to be provided. Seldom do local audiences have such an opportunity of
hearing a high class program rendered
by e ipable artistes', and it i- not at all
to he w,,ndered at that the tie.kets are
meeting with a ready sale.
At the risk of making what may op-
pear io bean invidiouA selection, we
would call Special attention to the
song "Land of hope aud Glory"which
is to lie sung by Miss Parker with cornet, trombone nnd quartette aci-om-
paniment, and which will undoubtedly
form n memoinhle feature of a splendid rogram. "The key of Heaven" by
Miss Parker and Mr. Lawrence ds another item which promises a delightful
I rent, indeed iho program as a whole
is most attractive.
Dining the discussion at the forest,
fire conference of the Western Forestry
and Con-ervation Association, one of
the first propositions made was the
cultivation of an educational movement which would in ihe course of time
mak.- easy the passage- of laws in the
different states along the Pacilic Coast
and in British Columbia, prohibiting
smoking in the woods during the Sum-
met* season, when the danger of fire is
greatest.
The British Columbia forestry system was the-n taken up by Mr. T- F.
Paterson, who     expressed the    Coast
lumbermen's  view.   He stuted that on
I
tho Coast there were only four mouth- of real fire danger. The soil was
not peaty, and the rest of the year
there Was more or less rain. The real
daugerof fire, he Baid, was in the logg-
ed-ofl lands. He stated that allreports
of tire in the- Limber were exaggerated,
and that he did not I n ew of any one
serious fire on the coast in the standing timher. He thought thai the government Was trying to get value for ev
ery dollar expended, bat he feared tho
appointments    of   rangers an 1 others
' might tai.e the iorm of u son of polit-
i ;il oharity and that there might be a
tendency towards extravagance in ex-
pi nditure,
Mr. H.R. McMillan, chief forester of
the U. C. government, urged greater
co-operation between the lumbermen
and the got irnment.
Referring to the 0»anaga:i forest
trail-, h< iaid,they were all necessary
j Any  complaint  to;: . tment    re
garding unnecessary expen would bo
immediately recognised. All the expen
diturea w- r.- open lo thi .- rutiny of
lumbermen.

Wliii ihe' C.P.R. intends doing wiih

tion agitating political, financial ami
railway lin-li'- in Montreal and Ottawa
The company cannot need it lor thc

$60,000,000 worth of stock last year
realized $104,000,000 of which $45,0110,-
Oiiii wciu into ih>- treasury where there
were'ali'uly many millions accumulated.
li is held that there must be somo
s|k." i il reason for the present flotation in su, h a period of financial
-trin^i'iicy, and in rfuch a hurry mid
at such ;l rate of intere-4. It is freely predicted tbat the O.P.R. ia go-
nij: to buy something and that of a
startling magnitude. The possibilities
..I purchase are named as:
The Wabash, to make the connect -
iuc link with the Soo line. At present
Ibe 0. P. R. b is no direct route into
Chicago fiom the Weil andiron) the
Bail tO Detroit. The Wabash would
supply llie missing link. It will be remembered ibnt Ibis road went .into
the bands of a receiver a few days
ago.
Tbe Erie. with its' entrance into
New York, The O.P.R. has long desired control ot a route into New York
City.
Tbe eastern section nf the Trans -
continental, as many believe lhat the
Q.T.P. will repudiate its bargain with
tb" government.
The Allan line of steamers, which
bos   lone  been  desired by  the  O.P.R.
li Is <ai'l to be possible, loo. ihai
the company is preparing for such
i n emergency as exisicd last wintev

acquiring a Canadian system thnl is
developing into a serious rival for

Tin e are the reason ■ signed for
the loan, any one of whi'h would
justify -ii.h a greal loan at tli"
present time, It i- more than prole
•bli ii   w.i    made  for either  the    flrd
or Becond proposals.   Some importaat
development  is certain,    as tho   C. P.
R. knows belter than anyoneelse, thi
condition ofihe money market and to
Houl such an enormous loan at tic-
time, shows some undertaking <i
mammoth proportions, and whieh

A Nelson Example
R.G.L. Clarke, Chief Kruit Inspector of Uritish Columbia, WaB recent
Caller atthe office of the Industrial
Commissioner, and, as an illustration
of what combined effort will do, cited
the case of the Doukhobor Colony at
Nelson,  B.C.
They made into jam 19'J,817 pounds
of strawberries which cost flve cents
per pound, 12,679 pounds of raspberries
at 6 cents per pound, N,*200 pounds of
gooseberries at four cents per pound,
2,458 pounds of red currants at live
cents per pound, ttnd 2,974 pounds of
black currants at seven cents per
pound.a total of 286,020 pounds ui of'
aii'I perishable crop picked by their
own people.
Pickers   wei"      paid  I'J      cents      per j
pound  or $3,390.12.   They  also  bought
blackberries at li cents, cherries, plums
tomatoes, apples and crabs.     They im
porU'd from  the Okanagan 11,566 lbs.
of  peaches  by express at   IJ   cents    per
pound laid down at tbc cannery, and
9,150 pounds of apricots from tbe same
source at ,r>J cents per pound, delivered
at the cannery. A grand total of 177
tons,   totaling more  than  $18,000.
Tbe Uritish cabinet, which held conferences Inst week to prepare for the
next session nf Parliament, decided to
eliminate from the Home Hide Uiil bhe
clause transferring the Irish post offlcy
to the authority of the new Dublin
Parliament, This clause has i>ccn
severely attacked   by   t'hc opposition
speakers  and   also by     Federal  homo   ,
rulers as a  serious ble'inish in  the    bill, j
Henceforth, therefore, ihe post office,'i
like the foreign policy, will be under
Imperial control. It is reported that
the negotiations between the government nnd the opposition on tho Ulstor
difficulty is apparently making no progress.

Worthy of the world s
best music
To most of us the chance to hear human playing
of good music comes infrequently. Only in the
great cities are the appetites of the music-hungry
satisfied. Even then one can hear but a small
part of all the worth while concerts.
Fortunately for (hose who love the nwtrrs of the past, and who
have the judgment to recognize in present day composers the
masters of lhe future, there is the Edison
Phonograph. Il is worthy of Wagner, of
Bach, of Puccini. The clear, sweet lone,
remarkable in its purity, is simply a translation of human music into your own home.
Unless you have heard lhc neviest Edisons,
you have no conception of their wonderful
mellow quality. You never realized that
such beauty could be applied lo sound.
Ask your Edison dealer to play one of
lhe Blue Amberol Record" ihen you will
know lhat the whole world of good musir
-past and present-is open lo you. Edison AmbaroU I
