I Railroad Wizard' Promises to
Push V.,V.&E. to
a Finish.
Long Years of Waiting on Presdent
Hill Makes People Skeptical
of Promises.
James T- Hill of the Great Northern
railway and party of magnates have been
touring the west Recently. At Portland
the 'railroad king' said he would push
on to early completion all lines now under construction. At Seattle this Pro
phet and Booster said Washington and
British Columbia were simply basking
in prosperity and the future of both was
very bright and hopeful. At Vancouver
this Wizard of the West was waited upon
by the board of trade and he promised
to push construction of the V.,V. & E.
from both ends to an early finish.
No doubt Mr. Hill believes what he
says and intends to carry out plans for
speedy building of the V.,V. & E- but
the people of the Jimhilkamecn valley
have been waiting eleven years for railway transportation and they have witnessed the tardiest construction on record, until uow they have grown quite
Missourian an_ 'show me' is the watchword all up and down the country. •
If Uncle Jim means business why is
all work closed down on the line and the
contractors hauling their implements
and plant back to Princeton ? Why this
marking time : Where thousands of men
should now be at work a solitude that
may be felt now reigns. Oh, no, James !
Not any more Xmas taffy, thank you.
To make good the dirt and rocks should
be flying at the first tap of the new year,
and thesigns are decidedly against that.
THE MERRY MUSICIANS.
What promises to be a most joyful occasion is the appearance in Princeton on
Thursday night, Jan. 5th, 1911, of the
fun making troupe of Pierrots, in the
I.O.O.F. Hall. This company, under the
management of C. P. Walker, who sent
us 'Twelfth Night,' has been chosen for
their abilities as laugh makers only and
newspaper reports from neighboring
cities state that they are fulfilling their
purpose in no uncertain manner. The
company appear in the garb of the pier-
rot and give a performance after the fashion of the English 'Follies.' The Musical Eckhardts, Mae George, Matt Grieg
and Leona Repine are included in the
company. The Eckhardts delighted
Princeton music lovers last Jnne and will
always be sure of a geuuine welcome.

THE MASQUERADE BALL.
CHEERY CHRISTMAS
Balmy Weather, Good Sleighing,   Full   Larders,
All Happy.
Santa Clans has Bountiful Stock for
Little Ones and Presents for
the Grownups.
Everybody Invited to Feast of Fun
and Frolic—Tickets Agoing.
The Ladies' Hospital Auxiliary are
meeting with every encouragement in
their preparations for the grand Masquerade Ball to be held a week from next
Friday, the 26th inst. The charitable
nature of the ball in providing funds for
the* hospital commends the project to
every person subject to sickness and disease, and to all who desire to help their
less fortunate fellowman. The zeal and
enthusiasm with which the ladies have
undertaken to provide an enjoyable occasion is deserving of every praise, but
when' they so manage their pucblic benefactions as to combine the maximum of
pleasure"" wfth so worthy an object they
at once remove the idea of some that a
contribution to a pulic institution is a
somewhat disagreeable duty by making
it possible for all to spend a night of
sociable and amusing intercourse, which
cannot help to He all the more enjoyable
for the consciousness that it is a direct
assistance to the most necessary of all
modern conveniences—adequate hospital
accommodation.
There is tio doubt about the success of
this big masquerade ball, because everybody is interested. The supper is free,
the music free, the supper hall is free and
other gifts, thus every dollar received
goes to the hospital fund. That the
ladies splendid organization and hard
work for the closing 0/ the year in so
useful and enjoyable a manner is meeting with so much encouragement is gratifying to all. Everyone is expected from
far and near at the big ball.

CHRISTMAS.
Christmas ! glad day of the year.
Observed as a social holiday in all
the civilized world and b}' christians
considered the most important day
of all' time. As the natal day of
Jesus Christ, Son of God, it is the
one Outstanding event of history
to and from which all time is reckoned. Nations have their national
holidays or birthdays which are
celebrated with much display, but
no other day commands the'rever-
eut respect and real rej'oicing that
Christmas does. This is due to the
spiritual import of the day, for we
who believe and confess that He
is the very son of God, recognize
His divinity and spiritual presettce
on Christmas and all other days of
the,, y__a,r.,. It is that spirit which
has' ever j kept Christmas fresh in
the memory of man throughout the
past centuries and which knits mankind more closely together on that
one particular birthday.
The Christmas spirit is one of
peace and good will. Efforts by
matferi&l'means to bring about universal peace, the recent gift of ten
millions of dollars in.-that behalf
and the establishment of .peace tri7
bunals, all show a commendable
aim. But it is tbe peace cultivated
and exemplified in tbe individual,
in man toward man, in that ' love
thy neighbor as thyself which will
bring about universal peace. Universal free trade, often advocated in
these columns as a step toward universal peace, at best could no more
than coax nations into a friendly
attitude. Universal peace, therefore, depends on the harmonizing
influence of good persons and the
practical demonstration of peace
and good will toward neighbors and
our fellow men generally, To all
the Star extends ils earnest wishes
-for a happy Christmas.
