To u well attended meeting held in
the "city hall last night Mayor 11.
McKinnon explained the tiuanccs ot
the city and answered several ques-
tions put to him by the audience. Un
the platform with him were Aids. Mc-
Borley, Bourne und Hell.
The mayor said that after a stringent yeur the council wished to give
au account of its (stewardship. (July
it per cent of the taxes hud beeu
"collected this year, but the city's
work hud been carried on. A tax sale
bud been necessary to cleur up Certain difficulties. Police court hues
were ? 130U less than last yeur while
police expenditure was greater, due
to the previous police commissiou
having engaged extra policemen who
were not laid olf until this fall. The
council had taken over a loan of
fc'5000 from last yeur, had borrowed
$25,000 against taxes and *:!0,000' to
huish the bitulithic pavement, The
pavement loan did not meet expenditure by $7,lHX' which came out ol
general revenue but was guaranteed
liy debentures and which would cover
thc over draft.
A note iu the bauk for >1U,1)00 on
account of the sewer system which
had been carrier) for four or live years
had been pa'id oil. There bud beeu u
deficiency iu thc sewer schedule prepared in l'JUT. The council hud lound
the sewer pipe detective and had put
in WOO fe88t of new sewer this year
out ol general revenue. The council
wus trying to '.ret the sewer system
in  proper condition.
it wus [ound that the only way to
protect the pipe line and dam ut the
power plant wus to build a retaining
wall und fill In a hole. This hud been
nearly completed when high water
came. The wear on the green cement
wore a piece oil ..nd another 90 leet
bad been cut in thi3 fall. If the work
was completed iu the spring the dam
would be m L-ood shape. A new unit
had hem (ound necessary and a $40,-
tlUO by-law hud been pussed. There
was a big difference iu the price of
European mid Canadian machinery
and owing to the price aud design
thc turbine uud been ordered in
Switzerland. The war broke out and
shipment wus delayed and consequent
ly the plant had not been installed
uud recent trouble ut the plant had
been due to that.
Twenty of M block's of cement side-
wulk hud been built at fu cost ot
$10,793.75 which was covered by debentures. A petition had been presented for the construction of bitulithic pavement and thc work was undertaken. After the curbs and gutters had been constructed tbe company could not get money and $20,-
OtHI had lieen borrowed from the Molson's bank.
The street work h id been done liy
t.he prisoners as economically as possible and much good work had heen
done, rin' policy of the council had
been to build eine good road in each
direction  and  Fourth  street  bad  been
macadamized lor several blocks.
Tbe council hnd asked the scbool
board to economize and the trustees
bad met the council. The council had
agreed that there was no way in
which school expenditure could be reduced. There bad been an iucreuse of
5*4,009 in the school expenditure
which was equal to tho increase of
taxation of two mills. He said this
with no intention of criticising thc
school board. Tho number of children
was increasing rapidly as was the expenditure.
It bnd been impossible to finance
the city and avoid over drafts at the
rate tuxes bad been paid. There was
a difference of $8,000 between the
amount ol school taxes collected witu
the government grant and the school
expenditure, and this bad been provided oul "f general revenue.
ll. Manning, chairman ol tha school
board, said thai economj bad heen
a Hi'iiniiH consideration with the
board, lie appreciated the mayor's
remarks and wished ihe same   spirit

Final Session
At the last meeting of the city
council for 1914 held on Thursday
cvsning warm tributes to the good
work performed for tbe city by
Mayor McKinnon were unanimously
paid  by  the  aldermen  present.
His worship in bringing the session
to a conclusion thanked the aldermen
lor the support they had given him
during the past year and for the efficient manner in which the various departments hud been managed. He
was pleased witb the year's financial
statement. The various departments
had been kept within their est.mates
and some were much less. He thought
that the council had done good work
nnd had acted for the city to the
best of its judL-mant. They had had
tbeir differences, but thnt was only
to be expected and he believed that
they were all better for the information they" bad gained. The financial
statement was an Improvement over
that of last year although the year
bad been one of the worst in the
history of the city. He was sorry
that the new machinery hnd not been
obtained for the power plant but
tbey had no control over the wur
which had prevented the successful
completion of thc lirhting system.
It would probably be completed this
year and the money was already in the bank ready for the next i
council. Mnny matters had been elear-
i d up. The $10,000 note on the sewerage system had been paid off. There
was a S7.00" overdraft but he believed that it was justified. He had
promised to put the finances of the
city in proper position and he believ.
ed that things were in good shape except for the unmarked checks which
j had been mentioned. This was no
fault of the council. He was [(leased
with the years work and he thanked
the council nnd the press for their
assistance.
Aid. McSorley believed that a good
gear's work ha 1 been arromplisheel
nnd that civic affairs hnd been well
j handled. This was lue chiefly to the
interest taken l.\ thi v<>r nnd to
his bar.I work for the city. He regretted tl al v M Klnoon would
not be with  next year's council.

Beautification  of  City-
Lighting and Completion of
Auto Road Discussed
At a meeting of the board of
trade held in tbe city hall on Thursday evening a resolution was passed
approving a letter which had been
sent to R. F. Green, M.P., thanking
l.i m for his services in securing from
the government the appropriation for
tbe mattress work now being undertaken on the Columbia river bunk. A
committee will be appointed to ask'
the citv council to arrange lor tho
lighting of the automobile road ou
Mount Revelstoke and a letter will
ce sent to R. F. Green, M.P., asking
him to urge upon the government the
desirability of completing the road. '
The beautitication of the city and
other mutters of interest were dis-'
cussed.
A. J. McDonell brought up the ;
question of advertising the park and
a resolution was adopted instructing '
the secretary to write to tourist associations giving them full details ot |
the attractions of the city.
A committee consisting of W. Bews .
A. J. McDonell, Vi. H. Wallace and
H. H. McVity was appointed to interview the livery automobile owners
to arrange for a standard price (or
trips to the park and up tbe Columbia und other roads.
A. B. McLeneghan stated that the
road to the approach of tbe mountain was in bud condition and a
committee will be appointed by the
chairman to see what could bc done '
to Improve it.
On the motion of I. I). Sibbald jr. '
u committee consisting of W. M.
Lawrence, A. J. McDonell, A. B. Me
Cleneghan, 0. R. Macdonald uud T..
Kllpatrlck was appointed to draft
a letter to R. F. Green, M.I'., asking]
bim to urge upon the government '
the necessity for completing the |
automobile road.
The feeling of thc meeting was j
that owing to the Panama oxposl-
tion many tourists will be pnssing '
through the city this year but that '
owing to the war many appropria- |
tions would not be granted which
made it more necessary to urge tho
government to do everything in its
power.
A. J. McDonell said that tho genual passenger iirenl of the Soo line
had  advertised  the  pi^rk  extensively
Mid that many tourists would be dis
appointed if the road were not in
condition tor use.

One of the biggest civil cases in thc

expected will occupy two weeks, is
now being heard by Mr. Justice Clement and two assessors, James Mac-

The defendants contend thnt they
were within their rights in cancelling
the contract as the plaintiffs were allegedly disobeying the regulations in
regard to the sup-fly and UBe of compressed air in the tunnel, thus d<8-
priving other contractors of thc
power supply. They also allege that
it is not possible for the plaintiffs to
claim bonus for rapid work until the
whole of the tunnel is completed, as
progress would he slower as the bore
went further into the heart of the
mountain.

civil engineer, in the supreme   court,   tries will bc submitted ns well as ex-
and a host of expert witnesses are to   pert advice recarclin-.-     f"c     various
be culled.     The action is for $5-27,000   ventilating systems   in'.use on     such
damages brought, by James  A.     Mc-   works.
Ilwec, James J. Ilwce and   Raymond      g   g. Taylor, K.O., is appearing as
Mcllwee, of the firm of Messrs. Jame^  chief counsel for the plaintifls,     mnd
Mcllwee & Sons.  u'T.iinst     the     well   Mr.  E.  P.  Davis,   K.C.,  nnd Mr.    B.
known  railroad  contractors,    Messrs.
Foley     Bros.,    Welch  & Stewart,  in
connection with the boring of the live
mile Rogers Pass tunned for the Cnn-
nelimn  Pacific railway  under  Mt. Mac-
donnld in thc Selkirk range.
The defendants ure contractors in
chief and the plaintifls were sub-contractors. Sonic disagreement between
the parties led to the BUlh-COntractors
having their contract cancelled alter
they had been at work on the pioneer
tunnel for four or five months.
Thoy claim thut in conscience of
having their contract cancelled they
have lost a $250,000' bonus promised
them for carrying out the work at
the rate of over '.H'O feet month, and
also $250,000 alleged lost preetits on
their contract. They claim that they
were improperly deprived of thc contract after they had earned u considerable portion of the bonus.
The plaintifls are the largest tunnc
contractors on the continent and
operate chiefly in the Middle West
states, and of late have been doing
a good deal of tunnel work in Colorado. It is stated that they entered
into a contract with the defendants
to bore the pioneer tunnel.7x8 tothe
side of the main tunnel, which was in
order to enable the work to be pushed ahead on the main tunnel as at
Mirious 'intervals transverse tupnels
were cut to the main bore. The work
was also started at hoth ends. They
were not to bore the main centre
bending but only the main tunnel
'core Sxll, around which Foley Bros.,
Welch & Stewart wero to excavate
' to enlarge the bore to the size required for tbe completed tunnel. The
pioneer tunn?l and centre heading
were ol solid rock, nnd for the pion-
|ecr tunnel they were to receive $-0
per foot and for the centre heading
bore $22.50 per foot, with a bonus of
i'i,OOO per foot for every foot bored
i.mt   100  per  month.
Prioresses  Rapidly.
So  fast   wis the      work   prosecuted
tbat   before   the  contract   was      summarily  cancelled the    plaintifls     had
earned,    they     allege,     $350,000    In
bonuses,  baring in one  month   made
tbe we.rid record of 1,115 f"set    bored
in  one  month,   something  that      has
never been accomplished before    even
when borine from two faces.     In ad-

Edward Veddor, a voting udventur-
oub American, thc son of parents of
German birth who live in Spokane,
was a member of the crew of the German cruiser Gneiseauu, recently sunk
in the engagement oft the Falkland
Islands, in a letter to hiB parents,
published by The Spokesmun-Rev*iew
of Spokane—which was probably the
last he ever wrote—young Veddor
tells of the cold-blooded abandonment
of the British sailors who survived
the foundering of their ships ofl Cor-
onel. This voice from the grave cannot be regarded as partial to the
British cause. Young Veddor was
Britain's active enemy, but be dis-
criminnted between war and massacre. This is what he said of the in-
famoiiB conduct of the Germans:
"We were cruising ofl tbe coast of
Chile when we sighted the four British ships. You know you can see a
ship n long time before it comes
close enough to hit, so we had plenty of time to clenr our ship for action. We have 8-inch guns, and that
was larger than they hod, so we
shot two o' them to pieces before
they could get within ranee of our
ships. After we hnd sunk two of them
the other two started to run away.
We run after them nnd shot one more
to pieces, but the other one was too
fast for ns, so it got away. When we
charged the two ships we had to run
right through the place where we
bad sunk the other two. There were
many  Englishmen    swimming around
• md hanging on to unvthing they
could. I know we ran over some of
them, and the rest were left to
drown. You know I do,not. beflieve 1
will ever get used to seeing men get
killed or to be shot while they are
down and out. While they fight I will
light as good ns any of them, but
when they are in the water I do not
like to see them killed."
There has not been a naval action
Of any importance since the war be-
iran in which German sailors hnve not,
l-een rescued by the British after the
German ships had hen sunk. The son
of V,.n Tirpitz, the head of the Oer-
n.in  fleet,  was  fished out ot  the wat-
• i during the battle oil Heligoland,
and his father was promptly notified
thai he had b^en saved. Even some of
officers a: 1 cr. w of ths
■-.an, who steamed over drown-
en, were saved wben their ship

Present Inw Prices
Cannnt Last Long
The present low prices for stock
cannot Inst long. A careful review cf
the world situation makes it clear
that thcre will be a shortage next
year. Europe is becoming seriously
depleted in both breeding and feeding stock. The United States, for
ten months of the current year, st
its leading markets is short 715,015
cnttle, 208,000 sheep and 1,894,91)9
hogs. Canada hns, as before stated,
heavily liquidated her breeding animals and, while it may possibly
maintain its quota next yenr of cattle and sheap, it is doubtful if more
than    seventy-five per cent     of     the
number of hogs will find their way
to market ln 1915, as compared with
the current year. It is, therefore, a
time for live stock men to stay with
thefir trade. Thc present tendency ls,
of course, nil the other way. A safe
harvest is likely to he reaped by
those who hnvo stock for sale next
year. Even bankers and business
men are of this opinion.
One word of advice is to be given.
Avoid marketing so far us it is at all
possible to do so during the period
of October 15 to December 15. This
is a time of the yenr when everybody else has stock for Bale. It is a
reriod when packcrB know that they
can fill their cellars with cheap ment.
These are the months when the surplus of the whole country finds its
wny to thc packing centres. It Is invariably the period of low priccB, uncertain markets and disappointing returns to the producers. Breed, therefore, to hnve your stock available for
sale at some other time of the year.
Take care to provide sufficient winter
fred that you may not he forced to
sell when the cold weather comes.
Above all, conserve your breeding
stock.

Tourist Traffic Will Be
Heavy Next Year
Victoria.—H. W. Brodie, general
passenger agent of British Columbia
and adjoining territory for the Canadian Pacific railway, predicts a great
tide of tourist travel during the coming year. "Already arrangements
have been made for holding 300 conferences and conventions at San
Franciaco next year. This will mean
that 600,000 delegates will travel
from points all over the United
States and Cunada to the Pacific
coast. An active campaign of canvassing has heen in progress by the
Canadian Pacific railway for some
time, and there is no doubt that a
large percentage of these travellers
will either come west by the Canadian
route, or return to their homes via
our road. Thousands of tourists will
be attrncted to British Columbia by
these means. Arrangements have already been made for speclnl trains
for mnny of the conventions. I am
fully confident thnt the Canadian Pacific railway Will have just as much
business ns it can handle with its
equipment."

THE TOURIST INDUSTRY
The prosperity and advancement of
Revelstoke depend in great measure
upon the mining, lumbering, agricultural, transportation and tourist industries. Tbe tourist industry is one
from which much may be expected
and which, so far as Revelstoke is
concerned, i« at present almost entirely undeveloped. It is tbe backbone
ol tli" prosperity of Switzerland, on
it depends the existence of many
flourishing cities in the l'nited States
and in Canada it gives Hie to n number of nourishing communities, In
this regard no city in Canada has
more to offer than Revelstoke, and
when the attractions which Revelstoke has to offer are widely known
the growth  of the city  must follow.
It is proposed to form a Tourist
association which will make the fostering of the tourist industry its
sole object. A fertile field of endeavor lies before it. Its success will
mean much to Revelstoke and its
activities deserve tbe sympathy and
assistance of all whose interests ore
bound up  in the future of the city.
PHOSPHORUS   MATCHES
I'KOHIBITED
Edmonton  Journal:   The Dominion
govti nnUnt  has  decided  to place    an
absolute prohibition  on    the      manufacture of phosphorus matches.,    This
is one of the industries tbat is   car-
11 ied  on ut' the expense of the  lives of
j the workers engaged in it, and   there
is     no     excuse for     allowing such a
sacrifice,  no   matter what the usefulness of the finished product. The government's nct'ion  is in  line with     the
hunianiturinnistn of the time,  and   it
is to be hoped that it will keep up its
good work. No calling   should     survive  which      makes    such  a demand,
even though those who take it up ure
aware of the penalties   which it     exacts.
WAR HORSES
How are the war horses coming
through the terrible conllict? This
question presents itself when reading of the great battles, the cavalry
encounters or the artillery duc'is.
1 here hus undoubtedly been u terrible waste, and the four corners of
the earth are being scoured for fit
animals, But tbe British gunners and

PRUSSIAN POLICY
London Chronicle: Very likely (history suggests it) tho average Prussian Individual, when armed and uniformed, slips more easily into brutality than most other white races. But
! the significant acts here ithe Dinunt
! massacre) are not B matter of slipping: they are a matter of policy;
: and it became possible to get them
committed not because the Prussians
are a brutal race, but because they
are a race of doctrinaires, and because their disciplined habit of putting theories into unqualified practice has become almost a disease. Bel-
gium has heen. devastated and her
civilian inhabitants butchered in support of a theory. The most, sickening
acts have been done not because their
agents liked doing them, but because
the theory prescribed them.
FATE OF BRUSSELS
Springfield Republican: Brussels
was a prosperous city, with a population of over 60D.00I) when the war
broke out in August, yet even for
such a city a war tine of $11,-250,1100
is a staggering load to carry, when
added to other war taxes, one of
$6,250,000, imposed by the Germans.
It would be a heavy burden even il
1 the city had remained in its normal
thrifty and industrious life. With its
! industries prostrated and a large
I part of its people in exile, the suf-
1 lerinf: caused is not easily to he imagined. It would satisfy the utmoBt
craving for revenue if tbe Belgians
were hereditary enemies who for centuries had harried Germany with fire
and sword. Th? reverse, as everybody
knows, Is tbe case: Belgium's one
crime was standing in the path to
Paris and Calais, and it is for this
reason that the plight of the brave
little country has aroused such universal sympathy.

AN  AMERICAN HOMB had been due   to   the able manner In
New  fork  Life      One talking mn-   which the mayoi  had     superintended
chins plus one mechanical piano-play    the ifrorK,     Thp  fin tatemen!
01      plus four  Nuvujo Indian  blankot . allowed thut the oily  was in nn good,
or better, position ns last year, notwithstanding the war-. The pavement
and all other dixie work had been
finished when other cities were unablo
to complete their work.
Satisfaction with the accomplishments of the past year was expressed
by Aid. Smythe who suid that alll
had done their best for the welfare
of the city. He hoped to see a reduction in water and, light rates which
might be socured by charging a higher rute to the large consumers and
he intended to bring this matter up
next year  if re-elected.
Aid. Bourne also expressed pleasure
with what had been accomplished.
The council had done its beBt under
adverse circumstances. In his department the bitulithic work had made a
rush at the end of the season bo that
some things that be would have liked
to have seen done could not be undertaken. The work done was solid
and permanent. The city owed much
to the mayor for his close attention
and keen interest. He wns sorry to
see him  leaving the council.
Aid. Needham was not altogether
pleased with the year's work. He
came to the council with the idea of
not spending as murh as before.
Times were hard and the wur had
made tbem worse. He had tried to
cut expenses and he believed tbey
could be cut. The annual interest
charge of over $33,i>00 could not be
touched, but the council could stop
borrowing and so avoid increasing interest charges. He believed that run.
ning expenses could bo cut down. The
; police and schools cost too much.
Nearly every department was too
high except the tire brigade which
was one  department that could    not
I be pointed at. He could not say how
I the police nnd school expenses   could
[ be cut down but they sboi'.d be reduced. He did not think any boq,uets
were due to the aldermen. The mayor
had done his share. He did not believe
that this was because thc mayor was
paid  a salary but because of tbc in-
; terest he took in the city's affairs. If
the aldermen were paid a salary it
would help them to take more inter-
' est in thc civic work and would
bring more candidates into the   field.
rlt looked as if it would be difficult
to got six candidates for thc alder-
nninic  positions this  year.      Citizens
; could not aflord the time required by
tbe city. If the aldermen were paid
even $300 a year they could afford to
give more time to the work of the
city. If re-elected he would advocate
the payment of aldermen.
The mayor said that he appreciated
the remarks of the aldermen!  He had
heen  on  the council  for  five  consecu-
tive years. He bad made mistakes Hit
bis intentions had been good    and he
bad  done the best he could. The mayor's salary did not begin to pay   for
the work.  He needed rest and his  pri-
\at    business required more time. He
had not  realize 1     tbat    the mayor's
position  required so  much  time.    He
appreciafd the council's     heip     and
thought      that     citizns     instead of
ijiocking  tbe  aldermen    should      ap-

1 but they were disposed to think the
trouble was with the producer. I also share this opinion and feel that it
i may be advisable some time in tbe
near future to go into the matter
thoroughly with the object of installing a turgor and more satisfactory producer than the ono we have,
which is badly worn and always appeared too small, and if a permanent
supply of clean water can be obtained, it may be possible to get some
use out of this engine in case of emergency.
I During last Winter some repairs
were made to the buse of the dam
and a protective wall for the pipe
lines was erected, it wns found advisable to extend this wall for another 30 feet, which was done during
luBt month, an attempt was also
made during the early part of this
month to complete the repairs to tbe
base of the dam, but weather conditions prevented this being completed, which should be dene in the
spring us early us possible,
Early in the vear a boom was placid ucross the river above the dam
and a large quantity of logs have
loon collected at this point. This has
prevented a considerable amount of
Masting near the dam, hut it will
soon become necessary to remove or
destroy the material collected.
Polo Lines Etc.
Although we have installed about
tb new services during thc pnst your,
it has not been necessary to make
nny extensions to our pole lines existing previously, we have replaced a
good number ot poles which was necessary owing to thc construction of
cement sidewalks or depreciation,
und more poles should be replaced
during tbo coming yenr.
The street lighting systems have
1 een maintained in good condition.
The tungsten system hns been extended by the addition of seven
lamps, and extension ot this system
to a portion of Clearview is also in
bund. As the lamps burn out on this
circuit, I have replaced with the
nitrogen filled tungsten "lamps which
are much superior in Illumination,
just as strong, and the same price
ns the older type of tungsten lamp.
The fire alarm system has been
maintained In its usual efficient condition, and in no case failed to re
ipond, although I have had some difficulty with the striking mechanism
of the boll In connection with number one hall, caused by using unsatisfactory oil for lubricating purposes
combined with tbo eftocts of the recent  cold  weather.

it may be advisable in the near future to go into the matter of making
such changes to thc gas producer and
plant as outlined earlier in this report to enable it to be used in case
of urgent necesrity to supply at
least those consumers whose business
is seriously affected by the failure of
the supply  of electricity.
The matter of arranging for nn extra man to be available at the power
plant at. all times should be considered and it may be advisable to convert the present oflice building into
n suitable residence with this object
in view, as an extra man immediately available at the power plant is thc
i time of trouble or accident, would be
invaluable.
In conclusion I wish to tender my
thanks for the unanimous approval
of the council relative to the by-law
carried early in thc year for the new
plaint, which I trust upon completion
will enable us to maintain our former good service.

Other questions were asked by !»-
D. Shaw and C. W. Field regarding

Mr. Muiining said that cemetery
fees amounted to $001.50. He thought
the money should be spent un the
cemetery which was in a dilapidated
condition.
Aid. Bourne suid thut the prisoners
worked for two woe.is in the spring
and for two in the full iu the cemetery which was iu bettor condition
than ever before. Much work bud been
done there and thc council intended
to put in a water system. More work
bo.il been done in the cemetery than
in any former year.
The mayor said that the council
had boon requested to keep the
boulevards in order. The trees bud
been pruned, but he thought that it
was impossible for the council to attend to the grass. He thought that
householders should cut thc graBS
themselves. Trees which had been replaced had been broken again and be
thought citizens should assist in
preserving the trees and keeping the
lawns in order.

The mayor inferred that the $W>0O

board. The police force cost }\2,-

expdidituro enormous and unnecessary. Every cent spent by the school

where us it should be paid per pupil.
An extra teacher had boon engaged at
the high school. Now doors hud been

Automobile Road
The following is the resolution that
has been drawn up and forwarded to
It. E\ Qreen, M.IJ. by the spetfnl
committee appointed by thc bourd of
trade at Its meeting on Thursday
night.
Whereas the city of Revelstoke has
spent between $3000 and $40(10 on
roads and trails in the Revolstoke
National park, and have agreed to
furnish electricity for the purposes ol
lighting roads and electric signs a.nd
Whereas the provincial and Dominion
governments have already spent cum-
slderable sums of money building ail
automobile road to the park, and the
road is already completed approximately etgbt miles, and owing to the
out break of the war nnd curtailment of expenditure by the government the road wus not completed as
expected und
Whereas, it is of the utmost importance that thc road be completed
to the summit at the earliest possible date this year, owing to the
facts that the Soo line has already
advertised the completion of the road
us por nttnrhml pamphlet, nnd the
Canadian Pacilic railway dining last
summer sent out their mnn nnd has
taken moving picture filirs, 500 feet
ii. length us per letter enclosed,
which will be exhibited as a moving
picture during the entire life of the
Panama Canal exhibition at Sun-
Krancosco. These two facts alone demonstrate that we will have a large
number   of  tourists   stop  od  to      nee
the beauties of this magnlfl<cent park
and they will be much disappointed
if the road is not completed curly in
the season to enable them tO reach
the objective point, and
Whereas owing to the unlavoriible
conditions which exist on account of
the war the laboring population of
this district is much in need of employment, and government assistance
may huve to be provided if employment is not given soon, there being
no poles or other forest products being ut in this section this winter in
consequence there will be no mills
tunning in the district next summer
and you can readily see what this
will   mean   to   this district.

and I few intimate friends. Leaving
the church s few minutes titter "
o'clock, th" throe stelgb loads of
pleasure seekers wore taken through
the main tboroughfarss of the town
then journeyed down south mill made
the  favorite  round  trip       The    usual
uccompanlmeut to such hilarity   was
etrongly in evidence, horns, mouth
organs, trombones, cornets, and
other miscellaneous instruments,
which at any time but a sleigh ride
would be considered anything but
pleasant or entertaining. Arriving
back at the church about 9,80, a
sumptuous repast awaited the appetites that had by this time been
vvorked up. No pains or efforts had
been spared to make the banquet
room beyond criticism. On entering,
the flrst thing thatm et the gaze, was
u sign, about 12 feet long, bearing
the word 'Welcome,' in large characters. Other decoration, and bunting
were elaborately arranged, adding
much to the general appearance. The
outstanding feature in making the
banquet room attractive, was the
display of electric lights tastefully
strewn from all corners of the room.
On one side of the room, there were
the four letters Y.M.B.C., made from
green paper, the letters being three
feet in length. Hero and there scut-
tered over the letters were innumerable tiny electric lights, in different,
colors, rod, green and white, tho
lights going in und out intermittently throughout the entire evening. Tbe
other lighting in the room was also
beautifully shaded and pretty. After
the assembly had done justice to their
appetites, the toasts of the evening
were then gone through. President
Lloyd Stewart proposed n toast to
the king anil the assembly responded
by singing the National Anthem. The
next toast on the list was Canada
prraposed by Mr. Kenneth Corning,
end responded to by the singing of
tbe song "O Canada." Tbe third
toast of the evening was to the Pastor and his wife, the Rev. J. W. and
Mrs. Stevenson. Th'is was ably proposed by Mr. A. Thomson in a few
well chosen words. He referred to
the difficulty and untiring duties ol
the minister, and remarked that if
he wished to carry on the work effectively, the young men must stand
behind him iu the task. However the
duties performed by a pastor were
not in every case arduous, as occasionally there were such thingB ns
marriages and christenings, and he
imagined these must hrint: a little
pleasure to him. In rising to respond
Mr. Stevenson in a jovial way heartily endorsed the remarks spoken by
Mr. Thomson. He was pleased with
the work that hud been done by him J
with tho young men of his congregn- j
tion and hoped that tho year abend
would bring out still greater results
by them. As he had looked at the j
Y.M.B.C. sign several times during
tbe evening, ft had brought a few
thoughts to his mind. One was thut
these lights going out and in intermittently on th. si. n, represented
some mens lives. At. times they I
ivould shine out radiantly, and serve i
a great purpose, but there would i
come the time when tho lights gradually faded and went out altogether. !
He felt sure however that this could \
uot be said of the young men of this j
Bible class. The next, toast on the
list was to the teacher, Mr. Allan
Thomson, nnd wns proposed by Wr.
0. Ainslie. He remarked that it was
through the hard and aRgressIVe work
of the teacher in the past, that they
were privileged ns a class to meet
together in this way, and hoped for
many such gatherings in the future.
The toast to tin cln8S was given by
Mr. J.L. Hay in an ai'.e wny. He referred to the chances that the class
bad witnessed during the past year
or two. Many of the lads who formerly met with them were now scat
tered in this and other lands, but be
felt sure that no matter what their
surroundings might be, or what environment they might be living under, they would reflect from their
lives that strength of character that
would co to make them a power of
intluance for good in the world. The
toast to the guests was ably proposed by Mr. A C, Haddon, It was a de-
'L'ht for the class to be the host at
uib a gathering, und the class was
well rewarded for nil their eflorts by
seeing such n pleasant compnny. He
closed with the lust two linos of the
welcome chorus. "We trust that you
will prosperous be and years to you
be many. In health and comfort may
you have, the fullest measure." Mr.
0, R. Macdonald responded In n fitting way, for the guests, The last
toast for the evening was the presid.
onl. which wns tlvon by Mr. F. McMahon In n short speech. The rest of
the evening wns then spent in games,
choruses nncf solos. The reading by
Mr. O. Ainslie was much enjoyed, as
wns also the solo by Mr. A. Haddon.
The hit of the evening vas the duet
"Solomn's Trombone" by thc two
Iiew Drops, well suited for their
parts, which was shown by the wild
applause of the audience. With thc
singinc ol Auld Lnnc Syne, the pleasant gathering broke up. Thanks nre
due to Messrs. F. McMahon and It.
Tapping for the work entailed in
carrying out the lighting arrange*
ments also to Mr. Thomson and his
able committee of young men who
carried through this third nnnunl
banquet with such succors. The
slelchs were supplied by the City
Transfer, and wore all that could be
desired for comfort and speed,

BAGGED MANY DEER
Princeton  Nimrods Got at Least 100
During  Season.
Princeton—When tbe open season
for the killing of der closed on
Tuesday, December 15, it marked the
most successful season t ver known in
Princeton. It is a safe estimate that
over 100 deer were killed and brought
into town, and there are few here who
did not hnve their fill of venison.
The early suow Ln the high mountains drove deer in large numbers
down on to the foothills uud lower
benches close to town and made hunting comparatively easy for local
BportB.
All those with doer meat in their
possession are allowed unother 14
days to either consume the same or
throw it away. However, thcre is un
amendment to thc Gume Act to the
effect that if it can bo proved to the
satisfaction of tbc warden that the
meat is intended for the sole use of
thc owner or his household a permit
will bc granted for an extension of
time. This latter privilege must bc
applied for, nnd. the applicant must
prove thnt the deer was killed within the legal time limit.

CUT-OFF WORK
NEARLY DONE
Good Progress is Being Made
on Construction of Short
Line to Coast
Princeton.—The railway situation
insofar as progress in construction
has been made, may be summarized
briefly in the following notes of the
Kettle Valley and Vancouver, Victoria and Eastern railways:
Steel has been laid from Midway
on the Kettle Valley line to Osprey
lake, a distance of 175 miles. From
Osprey lake, 31 mi.es to Princeton,
the grading to East Princeton is fin-
|ished. From East Princeton to the
'junction with the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern, at Princeton there
remains to' be excavated about 50,-
(10(1 yards with the steam shovei now
i working. There arc two large trestles
land a wooden bridge over the Tula-
j meen river at Princeton to he constructed between hero and Osprey
| Luke. The whole should he completed
I by early spring     ready for tracklay-
;ing-
The Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern
is now ready for trains to Coldwater
Junction where it joins the Kettle
Valley railway running to Merritt,
the.nce to Vancouver. It is hoped this
'portion will be immediately operated
!to afford at least tri-weekly direct
service w'ith the coast. It is not improbable that through trains will be
run from Oroville to Coldwater junction at an early date.
Grading   on   the Coquihalla     paBS
[ joint line wi'll be entirely completed
by the end of December. Steel will
be laid mext spring and this short
cut off to the coast wiM be. in operation next   summer,     finally    ending
;many years of anxious waiting by the
Similkameenites nnd the Kootenaians
for direct connection with Pacific seaports.
The rails,  ties    and  other mnterial
; are all ready for the line between
Princeton and Osprey lake, and steel
should be laid  '■■„•   i>'n     1.
Ballasting gangs are now engaged
in filling sags and lining up steel on
the line from Penticton to Midway.
This section will he ready for trains
early this year.
