Westminster As Centre
of Lumber Industry
-Reduction  In  U.  S. Tariff Opens Up
New Market for British Columbia Mills.
- This district as the centre of the
sblngle -_aanufacturlng industry on
thn Pacific coast ls the prediction of
lumber men, both ln British Columbia
I'ml the state of Washington, who say
ihat the recent tariff reduction of the
United States has made this the log-
leal centre tor operations.
First of all the cedar limits ln
Washington are well nigh exhausted
and are being out, some of them tor
the third time. Before, the protective tariff made It almost impossible
to Import B. C. shingles and sell at a
profit. Now tbere are no tariff restrictions, and wltb an exhausted sup
ply and eager demand in the Pacific
coast and other states, this province
is popular.
Among the advantages of locating
mills here are the lower cost of labor,
tha better supply, and the advantages
cf water and rail transportation.
The reason many business men
think the new mills wtll go up within
this city's limits Is that the wages of
operators and mechanics Is 2 1-2 cents
per hour less ln an urban community.
Also If a mill locates ln the '.ush
the cost ot feeding a camp ls greater,
and unlike tt wss years ago, ls so
heavy that meals must be supplied at
a loss to the concerns. However,
with men living In a city this ts eliminated.
For a month or more now Investigations have been made by Washington
manufacturers and new mills are
looked for along tbe Fraser and tributary rivers, and especially in New
Westminster.

General Vote.
There has been much agitation
among tbe postal employees for a
general strike at Christmas time
while the postal work is heaviest and
most important, but today's action of
the conference makes necessary a
general vote of the employees on tho
Btrike question and it is doubtful
whther a strike can be organized in
time to be effective by Christman

ADVBBTlSlUa HATHA on spplieation.
MONDAY   MORNING,   DECEMBER  8,  1913.
WANTED���A SANE CHRISTMAS.
There is a class of individuals who think Christmas
���was set aside as a holiday for the sole purpose of jiving
them an opportunity to see just how much bad whisky
they could tuck away back of their vests without floating
their backbones out of their systems.
Under ordinary circumstances, if a man is inclined
that way and has himself sufficiently hypnotized as to
believe that he has received good value for the coin spent
on a jag in the different kinds of a fool he has made of
himself at night and the different kinds of a fool he has
called himself in the morning, then all well and good. He
may be a believer in the doctrine of letting each man go to
the mischief in his own sweet and unique way and so
justify his conduct. Under ordinary circumstances he
may possibly get away with that sort of an idea, but this
year 1913 is one which is characterized by extraordinary
circumstances. Money is tight and there is a good bit of
real poverty in this city and its suburbs. Thank goodness
it isn't the kind of poverty that one pictures as existing in I
the slums of London and New York, but for the Last Great
West, the land of gold and rapidly-gotten wealth, it's bad
enough. Most of it, too, is honest poverty, not brought
on by laziness, but simply a result of the slump in the
demand for labor.
It's here the sane Christmas idea hooks up. If the
good fellow who has been accustomed every year to blow
in from five to twenty-five dollars or more on Christmas
eve in buying a rapid succession of alleged joy producers,
would only turn his cash loose in another direction this
Christmas, he'd get a lot more real fun and a whole shipment of satisfaction he never has experienced before. I
There are going to be a bunch of kids in this town and
hereabouts who this Christmas will run shy in presents.
Five dollars spent on accumulating the foundation tif a
jag would buy half a dozen of those youngsters a day full,
of happiness and save them a year of disappointment.
We all do not know where to find these little folk, but:
there are those who do. For instance, the firemen do, j
and they are carrying their share and more too in getting,
ready for the big rush Christmas Day. They'll take care;
of your loose change and see that it does its good work.
The Benevolent society will give you information too if1
you go after it; so will any of the ministers.
There's certainly a place this year for the extra dollars
that other years have gone in bad booze, and that place
isn't hard to lind.
American countries, la suffering from
lack uf labor supply, and there Is
now ii tendency to regard Japanese
coolie, as the savior, of the situation.
An argument advanced tor it I. thai
i Qcouragemenl i [ Japani se emigration to British Quiaana would relieve
i lie ontl-Japam Be situation In Britiah
Columbia end Australia,
Only 2,000 Japanese were In Brazil
lasl spring. During thut season, however, 3,000 more were broughl to Bra
ill, and Immediately thereafter ar
rangements were made for the bringing i r ���'��� 000 more this fall. Thai Is,
the great majority of the 10,000 bave
arrived ln Brazil in leu than a year,
Thi re Is no attempt to conceal the
businesslike manner In whicli the
emigration to Brazil Is being stimulated by the Toklo and Rio Janeiro
government., Two emigration companies are engaged In the traffic in
Japan, They are the Toyo Emigration company and thr Tskobayasbl
-.migration company. This fall each
reoelved an order from Uie Japanese
government to procure 1,600 Japanese
for emigration to Brazil
The government of Brazil, on the
other band, In co-operation with the
state of Sim Paulo, where moal of the
Japanese go, pays half the passage
money of each emigrant The emigration managers declare that li c ists
1125 io si't'ii one Japanese to Brazil

Ono day they moved to Webster.
There a stranger appeared on the

young woman. Finally he carried lier
off; she abandoned her home and husband and   went off with the new love.
A broken hearted husband went off

Mr. Lucas particularly quotes west

WHAT BOOR-IS MORE
USED THAN THE
TELEPHONE DIRECTORY
Advertising space is valuable, because the book is
in use by everybody, on duty constantly, every day
in the year.
It is the only medium that cannot be read at one
sitting and then laid aside and forgotten.
The Telephone and the Directory never part company. Side by side with the means of advertising is
the means of making the sale.
Do you not think it should have your careful con-
si deration?

Now that Christmas is coming mut-t
people are peering into tin- floriBt's
windows wit.i u nsw quest in mind,
lias Ihe mlBtletoe arrived yet? The
fading ivory-colored berry, with lis
Stumpy, llat Krwn leaves and thick
stalk, Its aneletil-aB-tlie-liruids associations, and Its kinship (by mere
proximity! to the staunch old Hritish
oak, arouses friendly Feelings Hiich as

little boxes, with their rniil, already
withering berries, Ib the signal for
con ;���!' tenes;..
Strangely enough there is no record
of any particular effort ever having
been made to grow the mistletoe here.
The holly flourishes and is cut In itn-
tnense quantities for decorations at
this time ot the year. But no mistletoe has yet twined its protecting,
wounding arms around Ihe oaks of our
parks and forests, A wild variety,
with small, almost insignificant berries,, does grow in parts or the Island.
But this, through a plebian and misplaced arfeclion for fir treeB, Ib not
entitled to respect or consideration in
connection with so firmly established
a custom as its use has become.
Those fortunate people who chance
t-i possess friends or relatives in
Worcestershire. Herefordshire. Kent,
and one or two of these other counties
in England where the parasite has
mule its habitat, come into possission
of the necessary complement ot their
Christmas fathering direct, and without frrthw '.ion 'han the opening of

On As a matter of fact, little of    the
! mistletoe, which conies to B. C. or
[any ether part of America is 9hipped
from England. Most of it Is grown in
the north of France or California.
The former bears evidences of having
been "the finer man. the nobler stock."

* As nearly everyone knows, the mis-

Druids, and was cut by them with
great religious ceremony, especially
when found growing on the oak. Medicinal virtues were imputed to it, and
it was regarded as a sort of heal-all.
panacea, and magical dispeller of evil,
whether abstract or concrete. It figures eminently, also, in the folklore of
many parts of Europe���France. Germany, the Netherlands.
Botanically it is defined as a parasitic shrub, and is found ond cediuous
trees, to -which, by the wav. it often
does considerable damage by sapping
theri strength. The family contain*.
more than six hundnd species, and is
found in almost all warm countries
in either its parasitic or non-parasitic
form. The berries, a local florist says,
are not fully ripened until sometime
about February or March, and this,
incidentally, has accounted for the
failure to grow the shrub here, as one
experiment known to have been made
was with seeds sent here about Christmas time, and which must, consequently, have been broken off some
six weeks previously. This wonld be
lone -s'ore ripening time. Another
Important agent in its propagation la
the missel-thrush, which does not exist
on the Pacific coast. This little bird
is one of the only ones known that
may -dine with impunity on a berry
wblch is more or less fatal to other
feathered songsters. It feeds largely
on the mistletoe berries during the
winter months, and haunts the forests
where Its patron grows.
It is rather Interesting to learn, too,
that the mistletoe found ln the English
market, and fondly associated by IU
purchasers wtth the gloomy oak forests ot Bngland Itself, generaly comas
