Appearance on the Stage.
The Christmas spirit was most happily interpreted for the children of the
First Presbyterian Church Sunday School
when last night in the Empress Theatre
they first of all performed, themselves
and were afterwards the recipients of
presents from the capacious bag of Santa
Claus.
The performances of the precocious
youngsters were marked with the pleasing naivete and self unconsciousness that
is one of the chief charms nf childhood.
A large audience paid tribute to the
merit of the vocal and histrionic abilities
of the children and everyone spent a
pleasant evening.
The names of the children of the
Sunday School who gave individual
songs or recitations are: George Shaw,
Nellie Shrubsall, Bobbie Wark, Eileen
Patmore, the Misses Nellie, Margery, and
Dorothy Cowper. Frank Morr^on, Ralph Evjan, Guy Phipps, Muriel Patmore. and Jack Humble. Among those
who contributed to the general gaiety
by work of supervision and instruction
were Miss E. Holtby, Mrs. D. McLeod.
Miss Sawle, Mrs. Phipps, Alma Christiansen. Miss Jewel (iarton, Mrs. Humble, Miss A. Sutherland, and Miss
Garton, Mrs. J. Mclntyre and the Rev.

SPAIN PASSES
PADLOCK BILL
FOR  THE SEPARATION OF THE
CHURCH AND STATE
A CONCRETE CASE
The Editor, The Optimist.
Dear Sir, The following is a
"concrete case" and so may interest you:
A real estate man of this city
had two clients, both in U.S.A.
The one (a) to whom he wished
to sell some lots: the other (b)
for whose lot he hud a local buyer.
To A he sent an Optimist, to B
an Empire.
When questioned as to this he
told me his reason was that the
one paper was "boosting" the
city whereas the other was
"knocking" it.
1 might state that both deals
have been consummated.
The inference is obvious.

We are apt, most of us, to observe
the customs and traditions of the Yule-
tide with the feeling that they had their
birth with the lirst of the greatest
festivals of Christendom. The Chri.stmas
tree, the gift giving, the candles, the
holly and the mistletoe huve become
so identified with our celebration of
Christmas that ihey seem as inherent
and peculiar to it as the radiant points
to the Star of the N'avitivy. And yet
it is to antiquity and heathendom that
we owe the customs we observe, the
���tock phrases we utter and even the
mince pie, without which no Christmas dinner is complete. The Germans, the Scandinavians, the Jews, thc
Romans, the Goths and the Saxons
have all contributed to make our Christian festival.
A Merrie Christmas
���'.Merry Christmas!" It is on our
lips from the stroke of twelve that
ends the vigil of Christmas eve until
the last candle has burned out on
Christmas night. If we think of it at
all ��ve accept "merry" as meaning
lively, sprightly and gleesome and
wonder a bit perhaps at its preference.
As a matter of fact when the English
first used the old Saxon word in this
connection, spelling it "merrie," it
meant simply pleasant and agreeable,
but we cling to it in spite of its changed
character.
Legened of St. Wilfrid
The day before Christmas we bring
into the house a great fir tree that is
made the centre of the festivities. It
is an old German legend that has provided us with this pretty custom.
Saint Wilfrid, the tale runs, was one
day cutting down one of the sacred
oaks of the Druids. Presently a great
wind seized it and it fell, split in four
pieces. Behind it Saint Wilfrid saw a
young fir tree standing staunch and
unharmed, pointing a green spire to
the heavens. He thereupon proclaimed
it a holy tree and the tree of the Christ
child because its leaves were evergreen
and its majestic spire pointed heavenward. He asked the people to gather
about it in their own homes, where
it should shelter nothing but loving
gifts.
The Christmas Candles
On Christmas we illuminate the
tree with many dickering candles���unless we prefer safety to sentiment,
when we make use of the electric lighted
devices. One may choose among several
picturesque accounts of the origin of
this practice. In mediaval times when
the forests seemed peopled with none
but sacred trees, there was a tradition
of particular holiness being invested in
an illuminated tree. Then the ancient
Jews held a Feast of Light about Christmas time in which candles were an important feature, so that their use may
oddly enough have been thus adopted
by the Christians. The huge Yule
candle signified the coming of the light
into the world. The most beautiful
idea is that our use of candles is derived from the fact that probably
when Christ was born twinkling lights
were burning in every house.
Holly and Mistletoe
The holly and mistletoe indispensuble I
for  holiday decoration were originally
identified with pagan festivals.    There :
is a tradition that the holly is the bush:
in which Jehovah appeared to  Moses. '
The mistletoe was an object of great t
veneration   to   the   Druids,   although
only when it  grew upon an oak tree.
The   propriety   of   kissing   under   the
mistletoe is a relic of an old Scandinavian
myth.   It seems that Balder, the Appllo
of the North, was hutcd by one Loki
became, "everything that springs from
fire, air, earth and water" had given |
promise not to hurt thc former handsome |
gentleman.    Whoever it was had thus
coerced all things of the earth and sea,
has somehow neglected to mention the
matter to the insignificant mistletoe.   .So
LoU   straightway   made   an   arrow   of!
mistletoe, and being an unprincipled
chap induced blind Hoder to shoot
Balder. Little good it did him, however, for the gods restored Balder to
life at once and presented the mistletoe to the Goddess of Love to keep.
Every one who passed under it received
a kiss to show that it was the emblem
of love, and not death. The popularity
of mistletoe was unabated for centuries, but one old writer says: "Mistletoe was abandoned tn the Christ mas
decking of churches together with kissing at the services, because both
sing at the services, because both were
found to set the young ladies and young
gentlemen a-reading of the marriage
service."
Origin of Mince Pie
The mince pie is a survival of the
immense pies that the early Christians
used to make in the form of a cradle
or manger. After several centuries
the pies were made smaller in size
but were still made to carry out the
idea of the manger, in a sort of coffin
shape.
Our Good Friend Santa
And dear old Santa Claus, or Saint
Nicholas, or Kris Kringle, as you prefer���what delightful myths from an
tiquity have presented him with hia
reindeers and his whiskers and pack
of toys! The Scandinavian legend relates the coming of Odin, the winter
god, who visited earth at the time of
the Winter Solstice or Feast. Odin
rode a white horse and preceded by
wolves and ravens was supposed to
lead an army of souls that had died
during the year. As Christianity triumphed it was only over the unbap-
tized that he was thought to have
power, and his army came to be composed only of the souls of children to
whom he became a friend. Eventually
he was said to bring the toys and gifts
to the children on earth. We are sat
istied now to tell the children lhat he
comes down the chimney with his pack
of gifts and disappears without being
beheld by mortal eye. In a little Moravian village ia Emaus, Pennsylvania,
which is the only place in this country
where the custom is thus observed, St.
Nicholas, or Peltznickel, is yearly im-
panonated by some villager, and visits
every household on Christmas eve to
distribute gifts.
The Feast
"O, won't you have a piece of nice mince
pie?
And here's a bit of lobster salad, dear;
These oysters fried, you'll surely like to
try;
And do you take your coffee strong
and clear?"
.Much more I heard behind the maple
tree
About  ice cream  and caramels and
cake.
I   thought.     "What   careless   mothers
there must be.
When children these forbidden dainties take!"
I   passed  the  o|ien  gate  and  entered
there,
The land of make believe���enchanted
land!
And Majorie, with hospitable air,
Gave me a generous dish  of clean
white sand."

order that the vessels from the Orient

Wisdom in Xmas Giving
Once more thc readers of magazines
and papers are taking their annual
Christmas dose of advice as to what
to give and what not to give, and whether
to give at all. For several years past
the trend of this advice has been that
we should cease giving from a sense of
duty or because we imagine we must,
that we should avoid cumbering others
with what we know that don't want,
and should cultivate the true spirit of
giving, and so on and so on. The
articles have hit hard and they have
helped.
In Good Housekeeping Gelett Burgess
expresses himself on the subject when
he says, "Christmas I love, but not
Santa Claus. He brings me usually but
chains and fetters. For who knows my
tastes and needs so well as I? No,
Christmas is become a formula, and I,
for one. would become emancipate from
its dogmas. When 1 want a camera I'll
buy one and get the pro-ier size and
quality. If presents must be given, let
them be money or kisses! I hate silver, for one thing; this 1 now inform
my friends. Hut how can I catalog my
abhorrences? They are infinite. From
silk-knit ties to little boxes devised to
hold six matches, I loathe everything
that money can buy -unless 1 have
bought it myself! And so, if 1 have any
friends left, tell them this; If they
would give me a Christmas present, let
it be that truest, rarest, blessedest of
gifts, nothing!"

CHILDREN'S COLDS
Now is the time when your
children are very apt to catch
cold. The sudden changes in
the weather, the difference
between school and house and
open air, getting uncovered at
night, all often lead to sore
throats, coughs and grippe.
MATHIEU'S SYRUP
of Tar and Cod Liver Oil
should be taken at the first
symptoms. Children find its
taste pleasant, and it keeps
them well and strong.
No better combined cure and
tonic has ever been compounded.
Ask for Mathieu's Syrup of Tar
and Cod Liver Oil.
Where there is fever with the
cold take Mathieu's Nervine
Powders to reduce the fever and
relieve the pain. They are sold
in boxes of 18 powders for 25c.
Large bottle 35 cents.

THE OVERCROWDED INN
This is the season of the year when we celebrate the birth of The Greatest
Figure in History.
The birth of a little child is always an event of supreme importance for the
world is reborn wilh the first cry of every infant. The solemnity of it all overpowers us for the most part, so we fall back on jest, as is our wont at tense moments,
and hide our deep feelings from the world behind a mask of jollity. The birth of
the feeblest child is an event of greater importance than the death of the greatest
man.
It is full of pathos that story of the coming of The Greatest Figure in History.
How it haunts the memory, the story of those night scenes on the road to Bethlehem
in Judea, when to obey the order of Cyrenius, governor of Syria, the populace
went up to be taxed.
Among that motley, throbbing, jostling crowd they were an unusual couple,
that aged man and the comely young wife, so soon to become honored above all
women.   Had the world but understood the superlative significance of the birth
of Mary's child, it would have showered magnificence upon the mother and her '
babe, and called upon the morning stars to sing together again for joy.
Ah it was, it could find for thtm not even a place at the inn.
In that perfunctory statement of Luke's, "She brought forth her firstborn
,   .   .   and laid him in a manger;  because there was no room at the inn," ',
the poignant tragedy of half the world is embalmed.
There was room at the inn that night for many people.   The merchant was i
there with his mind full of shrewd business plans and his wallet filled with many-
pieces of silver;   the soldier was there with his weapons of trained murder;   all
who could fight or browbeat or haggle made good their claim for  hospitality,  and
mine host had rooms reserved for officialdom and respectability.   It looked as if,
there was room at the inn for all but its Greatest Guest.
The tragedy of the incident at the inn is worth reflecting on at Christmas
time.   It is a tragedy which is daily being told again.   In how many lives is the ;
story not repeated.   With how many of us is it not true that for the greatest things
Of life there is no room in the inn of the foul.   It is the fatal concomitant of our
prosperity.
Room at the inn!   There should be room for many callers.   The inn is not |
a church or a place of continuous piety.   It is no indictment against the inn that
it is a place for bargaining and for conviviality.   The inn only becomes the scene
of a tragedy when it is so filled with sordid occupants that its doors are closed
upon its royallest visitors.
There is no need to labor the preachment.   The incident of that first Christmas-
eve has a lesson to many of us.

by the contractors for grading.
Handsome Buildings
Among the many fine new buildings
which have been erected during the
past few months ure the Bank of Mon
treal. reinforced concrete building, a
handsome and permanent structure on
Thiril avenue, and three new hotels,
the Central, Empress and Windsor.
The Clapp apartment and business
building on Second avenue is a substantial structure of fine appearance,

buildings. Numerous beautiful residential buildings have been built, and are
building on Borden street, Fourth and
Fifth avenues, near the centra! section
and some further out.
Fire Protection and Water Supply
At present the business section of the
city is well protected from fire by new-
hydrants at suitable points capable
of serving as many as eight lines of
hose at over 100 lbs. pressure from a
copious water supply. For household
purposes the water supply is good and
sufficient. Further, a superb scheme
is in hands tn bring in water sufficient
for a big population from Woodworth
Lake. The surveys for this are complete, anil the whole work costing about
half a million dollars will soon be beginning.
Sewerage System
All the streets lieing graded in the

done the sewers ure put in ahead of
grading work. Water pipes are similarly kept ahead of grade in Section
One, and carried out to serve the out-
! lying districts at need.
Electric Light Plant
A city-owned electric light plant ia
almost completo and the streets, and
many of the premises in the businesses | section will be electric lighted by the
^ | beginning of  1911.    The cost of the
plant   when   complete   will   bo   about
$40,000, and the current can bc profitably disposed of at 15 cents per k. w.

JAPAN'S NEED
BRITAIN'S GAIN
PLACING DREADNOUGHT CONTRACT IN ENGLAND ECONOMY
Alleged by Anti-Alliance People to Be
An Additional Bond Between the
Countries���View Exploded by Naval Expert in London.
London, Dec. 21.���When Japan recently gave orders for a new Dread
nought to be built in England the
proponents of the Anglo-Japanese alliance were loud in referring to this
act as having been inspired solely by
a desire of Great Britain's Far Eastern
ally to prove her friendship. It was
not tainted with the flavor of business
bargaining, so they argued, but simply
intended to gracefully draw more tightly
the "ties of alliance." All this sentiment
has been rudely shattered by Mr. Fred
T. Jane, naval expert and student of
international fighting ships.
"The report that Japan, while leaving
five of ther own slips empty.has ordered
a Dreadnought to be built in England
to show her admiration of the Anglo-
Japanese alliance, is somewhat weak
in the matter of the assigned cause,"
Mr. Jane asserts in a special article in
the Evening Standard.
"The actual facts appear to be that,
although Japanese yards are now perfectly capable of turning out moderately
sized vessels and very good destroyers,
the building of monstrous battleships
is rather beyond the capacity of their
existing plants. This probably explains
the tremendous delays in recent Japanese
construction. It is far cheaper and
expeditious to have a ship built outright in England than to import large
quantities of material to be put together
in Japan. It seems likely enough, therefore, that for some little while to come
we shall be building Japanese vessels as
in the old days before the war."
THE POST OFFICE
FIFTEEN   THOUSAND  SACKS  OF
MAIL   HANDLED  THIS   YEAR
In a new community the post office
cannot always be taken as a safe basis
of comparison in growth because of
local conditions affecting the actual
monetary business done.
During its second year of existence,
for example, Dawson the capital of the
Yukon territory, ranked second or third
in all the post offices of the Dominion
for the amount of money orders issued.
But that was a phenomenal year and
would be deceptive as a base for comparisons.
In the same way a comparison between the amount of money order
business done at the Prince Rupert
post office last year with that of this
year would be misleading, and for this
among other excellent reasons. Two
express companies are now in active
operation, cutting down considerably
the amount sent out in mail orders, and
in addition three large banks have been
added to the number in operation.
But the bulk of mail business done at
the local office has more than doubled
in the last twelve months. The receipt
of mail sacks last year totalled seven
thousand, which was handled by five
clerks; this year the number has grown
to over fifteen thousand and the office
force has been increased to seven. There
is now, in the amount of business done,
every necessary incentive for the erection
of that long-talked-of federal post office
as early as possible. On the Prince
George's last, trip she brought up sixteen
hundred sacks of mail taking about
three days to fully sort out.

Will Stimulate Buaineaa by Facilitating Communication Between Canneries and Vessels. United Wireless Has Contract to Equip Vessels.
The Alaska Packers' Association has
completed arrangements with the United
Wireless Company to install Telegraph
instruments at its canneries at Nak-Nek,
Karluk, Nushagak, Kogglung and Clarke
point. This will make communication
from cannery to cannery easy and quick.
In addition, the company has arranged to equip the steamer Kvichak
with wireless. The company's steamer
Nuskagak is already equipped.
Last year the Nak-Nek cannery experimented with wireless under direction
of Captain Jeffe Moser, general superintendent. Communication was had with
Nome and with the steamer Nushagak
and business was facilitated.
A contract has been let with United
Wireless to equip the steamship Dora,
of the Alaska Steamship Company's
fleet, which will be in port in January
for annuai overhauling.

A Sad Jolt
Dad doesn't grudge a single dime
That goes for toys.
He says that Christmas is the time
For girls and boys.
It is a pleasure, he asserts,
To buy ma's furs;
But there is one expense that hurts,
So dad avers.
Dad hands the servants goodly tips
And extra pay;
Into his pocketbook he dips
In kindly way.
But in the lute appears a rift,
It jars dad .so
To have to buy a Christmas gift
For sister's beau.
If you would like to see a clock that
is 281 years old you will see it at Wark's
Jewelry Store.

TAKING   UP   LAND
REGISTERY OFFICE REPORTS A
PROSPEROUS TIME
The land registration of Prince Rupert is amon-; the largest in the world.
It extends over one-third of the territory
of British Columbia, the district including 4 and 5 of thp coast district, the
Cassiar district, the Atlin district, and
the Queen Charlotte group of islands.
The first provincial office for this
district was opened a year ago last May,
in Victoria, and in August an office was
opened in Prince Rupert with William
Burritt as registrar. Applications have
been increasing every month, and next
year instead of two clerks the registrar
will find it necessary to have half a
dozen or more. As the Grand Trunk
Pacific gets on its way the applications
for deeds will increase by leaps and
bounds. There have already been
many applications for deeds from Stewart, the Islands, the Skeena river, and
Hazelton, but these have been few to
what are expected next year.
The same is true of the applications
for deeds for Prince Rupert city property. These are only beginning to come
in but will largely increase as properties
are paid up. Those registered showed
a very marked increase in values, and
although just now there is a slowness in
real ' estate market the prices have
maintained their level.
As the townsites along the railway
come in it will increase the work of the
office. There are fruit lands along the
Skeena and agricultural lands in Bulk
ley, Telkwa and Nichaco valleys and
quite a number of registrations from
the Queen Charlotte Islands.
OTTAWA AUTHORITIES HELP TO
COMBAT SLANDERS
Upon no other point has I'rince
j Rupert been so maliciously maligned---
I by the Coast press in particular, as
I upon that of the heavy rainfall. Un-
| fortunately there was no way of officially
rebutting these statements until the
Ottawa governemnt, believing that
the press statements upon the point
must be much exaggerated, decided to
establish here a branch station of the
meteorological survey, equipped with
wind and rain gauges and the finer
meteorological instruments warranted to
tell the exact facts in regard to the
climate. The government chose as
its weather observer here F. W. Dowling,
chief of the government telegraph service, and since July 1st, has received
by wire and published daily the
weather conditions prevailing here.
The undisputable facts thus published
have smashed all previous impressions
so carefully fostered by coast newspapers, and copied in those of the East,
as . to the rainfall of this particular
spot on the Pacific coast. It is just
possible that after the authentic figures
given below the Vancouver newspapers
may switch and claim for that part of
the coast the championship for rainfall.
During the month of November they
would certainly have every reason to
do so, as the rainfall there during that
month was probably quite double the
record of Prince Rupert.
The record of precipitation since the
branch office of the meteorological
survey department has been in n|>eration
here is as follows:
July 4.50 inches.
August 4.cs5 inches.
September 8.60 inches.
October 18.15 inches.
November 9.17 inches.
This is a monthly average of rainfall
for these five rainy months of only 9.04
inches and it will undoubtedly compare
favorably with the record of any port
on the North Pacific.
Many questions are asked in regard
to the cold "so far north," as on the map
Prince Rupert is only about a couple
of inches from Yukon territory where
for six months in the year the thermometer huddles below the zero mark
and for a short spell goes out of business
entirely. Early in November they were
freighting on the frozen Yukon, yet our
mean temperature for the whole of
that month was 36.75 above.
With the daily publication of the
metereological returns by the government at Ottawa these questions as to
the "rigors" of this so-called northern
climate are dropping off and the general
salubrity of the atmospheric conditions
of Prince Rupert are becoming well
; understood and appreciated.
REVENUE AND FEES
GOVT.   AGENT   MMULL1N   COLLECTED  $267,000  THIS  YEAR
The government agent is a sort of
unique possibility in the building up
of a new- community. There is no
guessing at what high stage of political
progression he may possibly land. The
provincial government starts these new-
communities by dividing up the offices
between itself and the people. It gives
the latter an elected member in the
legislature, and appoint'ng a government
agent who holds all the rest of the local
offices.
When John H. McMullin was sent
to Prince Rupert, for instance, as
government agent he was also assistant-
commissioner of lands, gold commissioner
mining recorder, stipendiary magistrate,
water commissioner, official administrator, coroner and a few other things. In
this multifarious vocation he sucoeeded
William Manson, the present member
of the legislature and candidate for the
mayoralty. His official jurisdiction extends from Princess Royal island on
the south to the head waters of the
Naas river on the north, running as far
as Hazelton to the eastward and taking
in the Queen Charlotte group of islands
to the westward.
As deputy land commissioner his
official acts have been more or less
confined to the recording of documents
and collection of fees for lands taken
up at Lalelse, Kitsumkalem and the
Naas valleys; as mining recorder he
has three well-defined districts, Bella
Coola, the Skeena valley and Portland
Canal.
As government agent he is the collecting and distributing officer of the
government, collecting rents and taxes
and fees in every one of the several
offices he holds. All police court and
other court fines are paid over to him
and to assist him in the recording of
his manifold activities he now has to
employ five clerks.
An idea of how the business of the
! office has increased during the past
I year can be formed from the receipts
| from the many sources. Last year
| they amounted to $101,000. This year
to no less than $267,000. Thus in one
year the revenue to the provincial
I government from this comparatively
i snmall section has more than doubled,
and it is expected the rapid development only just begun will next year
be marked by a much larger ratio of
increase.
BANKERS DO WELL
THREE    NEW    BANKS   STARTED
THIS YEAR
A well-known Canadian financier who
visited here this fall was surprised to
find so large a sum on deposit with the
banks here. It was at that time a little
over three million dollars and he ob-
served that Moosejaw, a rapidly growing
place of from ten to fifteen thouiand
inhabitants, had not as much |n its
many banks. How the banking businau
has grown here can be understood (rom
the fact that during this year three new
banks went into ambitious operation
here. These were the Bark of Montreal,
which is just completing lu hires, concrete bank building, ths- Royal Hank
now operating in the Helgerson block,
and the Bank of British North America.
The pioneer was the Canadian Bank of
Commerce, closely followed by the
Union Bank. All five institutions are
showing a healthy natural growth, and
the clerical force of each constantly
added to with the natural j-ro-.-h of
business.
