Ocean Falls Company  to Renew Operations  Amalgamates With Largest Concerns on Pacific Coast  THREE MILLIONS DOLLARS FOR DEVELOPMENT  If the plans of Mr. I. Hamilton  Benn.of London, England, and  Messrs. Mortimer Fleishhacker  and Wm. Pierce Johnson of San  Francisco, are carried out, as at  present arranged, it will mean  that the huge plant at Ocean  Falls will shortly start up again  with renewed vigor, and greater  work and development in that  district will follow.  It is proposed to form an amalgamation of the Powell River  Pulp and Paper Co., the Crown  Paper Co., of Portland, the Quat-  aino Sound Pulp Co., and the  Ocean Falls Co., thus consolidating the latter company with the  three largest pulp and paper  properties on the Pacific Coast.  Under the agreement, a group  of Pacific Coast capitalists agree  to guarantee fifty per cent, of  the bonds of the Ocean Falls Co.  in addition to the guarantees on  the property, and to spend a sum  of three million dollars on extending the plant and in erecting  a paper mill at Ocean Falls.  The proposal has been endorsed  at a meeting of the debenture  holders of the Ocean Falls Co.,  recently held at Salisbury House,  London, E. C, and Mr. Benn has  been despatched to San Francisco with authority to enter into  the proposed agreement.  It is confidently expected that  early spring will see all the logging camps in the neighborhood  of Ocean Falls in full swing, and  it is highly probable that Bella  Coola Valley, where the Ocean  Falls Co. have very extensive  holdings, will be the scene of  lively operations.

The announcement of the building of this new railway has been  kept very quiet by the British  capitalists who are behind the  scheme.  The first knowledge of the actual incorporation was received  in Montreal only very recently.  What capital the company has  at its command and who the  backers! are is not definitely  known.  Cash Advances  to Farmers  Victoria, Dec. 18.��������� The Provincial Agricultural Commission  is busily engaged consulting  managers of banks and loan companies relative to the possibility  of organizing a scheme of advancing money to the farmers of  the province on easy terms in order to promote the agricultural  conditions generally.

The consignment of freight for  this port by the last Cheloshin  was an unusually large one. A  glimpse at the manifest showed  clearly that local residents have  little idea of stinting themselves  during this festive season. From  a jewsharp to a beautiful player-  piano, everything was included  that would tend towards a happy  X'mas.  Among the passengers for this  port were Mr. and Mrs. H. Hen-  ning, I. Fougner, C. Tucker and  Miss Mattie Peterson.  Mr. P. A. Peterson and daughter return after a visit to Mr.  and Mrs. H. Henning of Vancouver, who are now returning  the visit.

They have been promised, he  said, repairs for one hundred  large steamers on the St. Lawrence and the Lakes, and hope  later to have the Canadian artillery work.  Sir Arthur further stated that  their Canadian establishment  would also be fully prepared to  undertake the construction of  warships.

Antoine Capoose, the well known Indian  from Anaham Lake, brought  down a big bunch of fine Interior  furs, including three beautiful  silver fox hides, in addition to  which he had a live cross fox.  s The cross fox which was a full  grown male, and a very fine  specimen, was purchased by Mr.  0. T. Landry who shipped it to  Vancouver by the last Chelohsin.  NOTICE.

The winter so far has been  exceptionally favorable to the  trapper and big catches are being  made.          Mr. R. A. Leese of Atnarko,  visited town during the week.  The Namu saw mill closed down  last Saturday. Operations will  not be resumed until the New  Year as there is at present an  ample supply of lumber on hand  to meet all immediate demands.  Bella Bella Notes  Johnny Bell, an Indian of the  local band was drowned on  Thursday last week. The unfortunate man was aboard his gasoline launch close to the New Town  wharf when" he was seen to lose  his balance and fall into the sea.  Wearing heavy clothing and high  rubber boots the man was seen  to sink almost immediately and  it was only after four hours that  the body was recovered by dragging with a seine net, lent for the  purpose by Mr. Grouthe of the  East Bella Bella Cannery.  The deceased was one of the  smartest and most popular members of the tribe, and much sorrow is felt at his untimely death.  A large gasoline launch belonging to the East Bella Bella cannery was completely destroyed  by fire last week.

Charity  can. be practised every day in  spite of the absence of poverty,  by extending the hand of good  fellowship to pur neighbor. Let  us not forget our duty as a neighbor, as a member of the. community to whicht we belong, and to  the country in^which we live.  We cannot .all think alike, and  it is perhaps well that we cannot,  but we can each endeavor to meet  the shortcomings of our neighbor  with tolerance ahd forbearance.  This is charity. Let us practice  it this X'mas season.  In these days of severe commercial competition, we are apt  to give too little consideration to  the other fellow, and it is perhaps only at, X'mas that this  thought is really brought home  to us. .But that; the instinct of  charity* the true X'mas spirit of  goodwill towards men, lies dormant in the breast of every man,  is evidenced in many ways.  Politicians suspend their quibb-  lings, public journals avoid contentious subjects", all work is suspended so that employers and employees may mutually enjoy their  X'mas'season, and the whole  christian world join in happy  thankfulness.for the great event  which we commemorate on X'mas  day.  X'mas would not be X'mas but  for the- happy interchange of  wishes.���������Dickens.  A Christmas Story  The story is told that at the  birth of Jesus three grey-haired  men took quite a long journey,  each bearing presents for the  new-born King. As they jour-  nied together they met a man  sick with the fever who had no  one to care for him. Two of the  men in their haste passed him  by, bnt the third took pity on the  sick stranger and'sold one of his  presents to have him properly  cared for. He then hastened on  his way to find the King.  Coming to a certain village he  found mothers in awful grief  weeping and he wondered what  it meant. Hearing terrible cries  inside a house he entered to find-  cruel soldiers tearing from a  franctic mother a little babe to  kill it. With pity in his heart,  for he remembered the little  babies of his own home years before, he gave the soldiers a very  costly jewel to spare the child.  Hurrying again on his way as  fast as he. could, he entered a  strange city, and as he walked'  along the street he found some  men carrying off a beautiful  maiden to a life of shame. He  had only one more jewel to offer  but the cries of the "poor girl so  filled'him with pity that he purchased her release.  ' Sadly he went, on his way, for,  he had no jewel left, with the  grateful maiden at his side trying  to comfort him, when a tile  loosening from a roof above fell  and struck him on the head leav7  ing him unconscious. The girl  knelt beside him in pity hoping  to ��������� see him recover. Towards  evening, she heard him say faintly in a semi-eonscious .state,'  "Lord when saw I thee sick and  visited thee or in distress and  helped thee" and a strange loving voice answered "for as much  as ye did it to these whom you  have helped you did it unto me"  and across the old man's pale  face there fell a light, he had  seen the King and had presented  him his gifts.  T. C. C.  Glad Bells of Christmas  By T.  C. C.  There are a great many factors  making.f or social happiness within the nation and national goodwill throughout the world, a  family name, a cpmrnon country  or race, our mother tongue whatever it may be, the public school  system, any great cause in which  the public may unite, and a common faith, these are all unifying  influences in society. But there  is one force unique among the  rest for the promotion of goodwill���������the Christmas season.  There is ho .other time in the  year when the family ties are so  strengthened in happy home  comings and glad greetings.  Communities meet in social gatherings. In the commercial world,  employer and employee stand on  a common basis and exchange  greetings. The factory hand  carries home on his back a Christmas turkey to gladden his family, and the -employer is made to  feel the good-will of those whose  energies he directs throughout  the year. The press forgets its  bickerings arid becomes humanistic in its themes and national  good-will .prevails.  Christmas we hail thee and  with glad' bells we ring thee in  again. \  Merry X'mas! it is coming,  With its pleasant ways again;  Bringing throngs of heart-  warm greetings  And gay wishes in its train.  One Law for AH  The London Standard recently  contained an article deploring  the release of Larkin after he  had been convicted of sedition,  and referring to the release of  Tom Mann, who had advised  soldiers not to fire upon strikers.  In the opinion of the Standard,  these and other incidents show  a dangerous tendency to pander  to labor sentiment. Let us hear  what the labor men.have to say.  The labor members of Parliament  signed the following memorial:  "We, the  undersigned" members ol Parliament, belonging to  the Labor party, beg to submit  to the Prime Minister that the  prosecution of Mr. James Larkin  for seditious speeches, and his  continued imprisonment since his  conviction, are grave scandals.  In view of the fact, that highly  placed   people   are  allowed   to  make, with, impunity, speeches  that appear to the average person to be far more dangerously  seditious,  and   that  this gives  reason for the widespread allegation that there is in this matter  one law for the rich and powerful and  quite another for the  working classes, we beg to point  out that there is a very general  belief that substantial injustice  had been done to a man who has  been leading a great struggle for  improving the conditions of the  workers of  Dublin,  and whose  efforts in their larger aspects are  regarded by the general public  with sympathetic approval. We,  therefore, venture to express the  hope that the "Government will  no longer delay to recommend  the exercise of their prerogative,  Popular Chrfotmas Gifts H  A Birks' Watch, Chain or Fob  \jj ATfHF^ for Men and Boys, in a great variety of  nAltnLJ styles, but all warranted to be reliable  timekeeoers."

If Carson is to be allowed to advocate rebellion as  against Home Rule for Ireland,  Larkin must be allowed as much  liberty to advocate the cause of  labor. There must be one law  for all. You may think that the  grievances of Ulster are greater  or less than those of the workmen of Dublin, but of that nobody can be an infallible judge.  You must either allow both Carson and Larkin to speak freely,  or you must check both, and  check them exactly to the same  extent.���������-Toronto Star.'  George Ham as a Judge  George H.

Some Luck for Canada  Some nations like some individuals, are born rich. Others  are born lucky.  So far as agriculture is concerned, Canada is both lucky and  rich this year. The Canadian  West is now marketing the biggest grain crop of its history.  For weeks the great grain elevators of Port Arthur and Fort  William have been working overtime. Before navigation closes  it is estimated that 170,000,000  bushels of wheat will have started east over Lake Superior.  This is easily a record for grain  shipments from Western Canada.  It is in picking out this year  to produce such a crop that Canada is lucky. All spring and  summer our neighbors of the  north were threatened with j  financial disaster. The country!  had developed so fast that its  demand for capital had exhausted the available supply. Municipalities, railroads and industrial  concerns wanted to borrow  money and found it practically  impossible to do so. London,  which had always furnished a  ready market for Canadian securities, had practically shut up  shop. A period of financial and  industrial depression, if not of  actual panic, seemed ahead of  the Dominion.  This was the situation when  there appeared on the western  horizon promise of the greatest  crop in Canada's history. John  Canuck was duly grateful. He  got. his harvest in handily and  wasted no time in starting the  grain to market. As a result  gold is (lowing into Canada in a  large  stream,   and   uninformed  MRS. J.

After all agriculture is the  greatest and the most legitimate  of all sources of wealth. Crop  failures come at times; frost and  drought and hot winds sometimes  dog the farmer's footsteps.
