THE CHRISTMAS TREE
Santa with Bells, Reindeer and
Filled Sleigh Arrived
On Time.
Children and Grown-TJps Receive Gifts
and Refreshments and All
Were Merry.
Christmas tree entertainment is now
a recognized annual institution in Princeton which, with the cordial relations and
happy participation of citizens generally,
has become an event of real social importance. The occasion was marked last
Friday night by a bumper house and
thanks to the Sunday school, the public
school, the various committees, Santa
Claus, the chairman, the- ladies and generous donors the bill of fare, whether
from a mental or bodily point of view,
was very entertaining and refreshing, and
will not soon be forgotten by the chil-
■dren Length of program precluded any
games for the children, the dancing lasting till past the midnight hour.
Rev. J. T. Conn made an excellent
chairman ::nd Santa Claus (Judge Mgr^'
^<f) acquitted himself in a humorous
. pleasing manner throughout Hi-
address to ihe children was a touching
appeal to them to be obedient to mother,
their dearest friend on earth, at the same
time they were not to be unmindful of
"dad," who had to rustle the grub for
them. Santa dispensed the presents in
his inimitable way, accompanying each
gift with witty remarks which convulsed
the large au.-lience—long maj' Santa be
spared fur the annual Xmas tree in
Princeton.
Miss Popple, as piano accompanist and
in instrumental solo proved to be an ac
coniplished and popular musician. The
character singing of Miss Gladys Coulthard and Jackie Lvall was good, as was
also that of all the children in the carol.
Duos ami solo by Mrs. Waterman and
Miss E Lyall were well leceived; two sorgs
Mr. Conn merited the applause ac corded;
recitations by E. Waterman. Dewey
MCulleu   and   Charlie   Murdoch ;   the
,/leiiu ; the selections by the band ;
Sant.'s addiess to a flask and the highly
balloon adventures of long winded Si
Sluwcuin by Ossie Coulthard were all
appreciated and contributed much to tin
eveni"g's entertainment.
The tree was loaded with g fis to tin
children, representing al o..u sevintv dollars of money well spent toward iheit
enjoyment and benefit. Refreshments
bv the ladies were provided in greal
variety and with a profusion characteristic of them. The Star wiifus the chil
dren manv returns of Santa and a happy
Christmas and New Year. Xext Xmas
Santa will probably come to town on the
railway.    Let us hope so ! W$0.
Juvenile Delinquents
"Reformatories do not reform. Let
us abolish this provincial 'institution as
Ontari 1 abolished hers. Let us not treat
the child as a criminal, much less as an
incorrigible criminal. Let us by more
sympathetic and humane treatment make
the juvenile delinquent a useful citizen."
In an able and eloquent address to the
law students of Vancouver recently, Mr
F. C. Wade, K. C, thus pleaded fo: the
erring child. The address was on Juvenile
Delinquency and Juvenile Courts. It
was as exhaustive as it was able, covering
every branch of this important question
which is now before Parliament in the
form of a bill for the e:-tablish,tnent of
juvenile conrts throughout Canada.
Bachelors Beware7%n
One ofthe most important changes to
be ushered in with the year 1908, and
one that will be productive of good results it is hoped, will be the right of the
gentler sex to asfsert themselves in matrimonii matters and ''pop the question."
This will be a relief to a .host of lovesick swaini who have good intentions
but lack theJcourage to speak the heart's
feelings, contenting themselves with
just spring and growing pale. Now
^t^tTthe maidens have their innings it is
to be hoped they will make good use ot
their opportunity. Princeton bachelors
sit tip and take notice.

All hail thou morn of all the year
To earth and mortals sacfed dear.

To share and bear man's lot and life
And help him back to paradise)

Let all mankind and Heaven adore.

Their song was "Peace on earth, good will

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth

On" Monday,   Dec.    16,    Ralph
Smith (Nanaimo) introduced his resolution touching Oriental immigration,    as   follows:        "That    sttjps
should be taken to restrict   the    in
flux  of   Oriental   immigrants   into
Canada.     Inasmuch  as   the   policy
ofthe Government concerning Chi
nese immigration   has   proved    entirely satisfactory, a definite  policy
£shjbuld be. immediately put   into operation looking to  the  acco-v.plish-
ment of equally  satisfactory results
with regard to all   other   Oriental
immigrants."   Mr. Smith supported
his resolution in a long  speech   in
which he argued  strongly for   the
exclusion of Asiatics.    He'Was sup
ported in his contentions by"all the'
British Columbia members With the
exception of Templeman andjGalli-
her, who did not speak.

A very interesting situation has
developed at Montreal, says the
Colonist, in respect to tbe project of
erecting an ice palace, which for
many years has been made a winter
attraction at the Canadian metropolis. A considerable and influential
section of the community takes the
position that such an enterprise is
not calculated to do the city any
good, as it only serves to draw attention to the rigors of the climate
in that part ofthe Dominion. With
his in mind, the point of  the  fol-
NiQg paragraph from  the  Mont-
Jazette will be  better   under-
jod:    "A  Vancouver  newspaper
^cords the fact that on December 2
grupes, strawberries and raspberries
were picked in the gardens of that
city. That is better advertising for
Canada than pictures of an ice palace on Dominion Square."
