Pkr Ykak    2 00  Six Months  1 25  To Fokkion Countries 2 50  Friday, December 23,1910  THE PRICE OF PEACE  Mr.   Carnegie would  probably  consider his splendid donation ot  510,000,000 as a fund for the promotion of peace   a small offset lo  the thousands  of  millions annually  contributed   by the  nations  for military purposes.    Those responsible for   the military outlay  will  contend that they also  are  paying for peace.    In the present  condition   of     society   both may  be right.     Nations   which    are  able   to   defend   themselves  are  less likely to be  wronged or  at-  acked than those which are helpless.     This  is  not   altogether a  sign that nations a<* such are less  civtlized than individuals in well  organized    communities.      It   is  true that citizens  in   a well-governed  state do  not  need  to  go  armed to protect themselves from  tbeir fellows.    But this  is partly  due to the fact that the state protects.    If a  man is robbed or injured he may  call upon the armed  force of  the community.    In  the  last analysis  the  aggressor  yields to   force,  though it is not  tbe individual   force of  the person whom he would otherwise injure.     A   considerable    national  and local expenditure is required  to protect tbe lives  and property  of any people.  There is no analogous force to  keep the peace among the nations. An international court  for the settlement of all troubles  among nations may be developed.  Mr. Carnegie's contribution will  go toward promoting such methods among the nations. As yet  the only tribunal devised is one  which can only operate by the  consent of the parties concerned.  Such a court would not keep the  peace in the ordinary community. The highwayman and the  man robbed, the assaulter and  his victim, have not yet reached  the point when they go together  voluntarily to court for an award.  It is still common to arrest the  wrongdoer and hold him by force  until the penalty is imposed.  What shall be the international equivalent of the local officers  of the peace? Where shall the  authority be found to bring an  offending nation to justice? Will  it be possible between nations to  veup altogether the appeal  force, a-- it has not been fou  possible in maintaining the pea<  within the nation without this  resort? Mr! Carnegie, who has  already contributed large sums  iu the endeavor to promote international peace, is offering another large slice ol his property  to assist in the effort to solve  this great and pressing problem.  ���Vancouver Advertiser.  The Birth of Christ.  To   the   Members,   Adherants of   the  Methodist Church and their Friends:  As the Christmas time approaches, clearer and clearer rings  out tbe gospel message of "Peace  and Good Will." Soon will arrive that day of all days in the  Christian calendar.  The Xmas of 1010 is to be tlje  greatest Xmas that has occurred  since the birth ol Christ. Though  the world has seen 1909 similar  occasions, yet, as the 1910 Xmas  leads all others in order of time,  so it does in order of importance  for the reason that the Christ-  child means more to the world  than ever before. Is not Christ  better understood today? Are  not his principles dominating  life iu the living with better effect? And is not the Christ  touching manv more lives today  than at any previous time.  Formerly it was the wise men  of the East who offered gifts,  now the wise men come from all  directions to* bow lowly at the  feet of the Babe. At one time  the shepherds on the hills heard  the angel's song, but now peasants aud princess, all ranks and  j orders, trades and professions  hear tbe music of the nativity,  then the representatives of two  j nations mingled in their devotion,  but today the Great Evangel  claims its following from all nations. Truly the Xmas of 1910  is memorable; and shall not each  one of us belong to that vast  multitude who celebrate the birth  of Christ on this the greatest of  all Xmas anniversaries? Our  hearts must be in harmony with  the occasion, deeply joyful, and  since the birth of Christ found  its counterpart in Calvary, deeply  solemn, but predominant over all  "Peace and Good Will."  Remember  the gift.    Though  many   may   degrade   the Xmas  significance   to   sordid   commer-  j cialism, let us elevate the Xmas  | giving to it proper position. Since  i every gift offered  or received is  ; a symbol of God's  great  gift to  i the world, when   every gift  thus  becomes an index finger pointing  to   Divine   love,   then may   our  Xmas be   a joyful   occasion in-  ��� deed.  Because there is such an abun-  Glad Tidings.  The report of the valuation  assessing the price of the taken-  oyer of the ten miles of the Mid-  ay & Vernon grade and passing  the accounts for labor, team hire,  and supplies in conaection with  that abandoned undertaking was  today presented to the government. The disbursrc-ments pro-  settlg-raient of wages,  are now being  being distributed,  come as a welcome  x to those interested, many of whom never expected  to be paid. Tbe valuators have  passed all legitimate claims for  payment in full, after authentication and audit.  Provisiou is only made in the  empowering legislation under  which the board was created.tor  payment of accounts arising in  the construction of the ten mile  section from Midway to Erick  creek. Other claims.aggregating  $10,000 or $15,000 are held in respect to that portion of tbe never  completed line out of Rook Creek  which has not been taken over by  the Kettle River Valley line and  which that company could not  consequently in fairness be asked  to satisfy.

By purchase of controlling in  the Cumberland Coal and Railroad company, official announcement of which has just being  made, leading directors of the  Dominion Steel corporation have  taken preliminary steps towards a  great industrial coalition. The  change of ov-iiership is expected  to terminate the strike of miners  which has existed at Spring Hill,  N. S., for over 14 months,  Religious Liberty.  "Although we have our troubles and our combats, we are absolutely free, and let us pray to  Almighty God that we may long  be allowed to live beneath the  glorious folds of the British flag."  Thus spoke Archbishop Bruch-  esi at the Jesuit church in Montreal a few evenings since at a  meeting- called to hear Father  Diaz, the exiled Portuguese Jesuit.  Father Diaz spoke at some  length oa the conditions in Portugal and expressed the belief that  the revolution would eventually  prove a blessing for the Catholic  church even though the Jesuits  were expelled. The result he  said would be that the Pope and  not the state would appoint  bishops.  This brought Mgr. Bruchesi to  his feet with a splendid patriotic  speech. "Let us pray," said his  grace, "for the persecuted people  of other lauds for we are surely a  privileged people here in Canada  and possess greater liberties than  those enjoyed by any other people."  The archpishop's warm eulogies of British freedom were  cheered to tbe echo by the large  French-Canadian audience.  After a year of steady work on  the long crosseut tunnel of the  Kootenay Belle Gold mine at  Sheep Creek, the tuunel caught  the ledge sought on Monday  night. This is at a distance of  325 feet, Some days ago it was  figured that the vein must be  close, unless it had changed direction, and it was found within  a few yards of the expected location.  While there is little mining  work iu progress in the camps  along the west fork of the Kettle  river, the movement made in direction of proceeding with the  construction of a railway through  the district is giving holders of  mineral claims fresh heart, so  that a resumption of work next  spring is looked for.  At the meeting of tbe committee on mines and minerals, a subcommittee waa��named to wait on  Messrs. Laurier, Oliver and Templeman to discuss with them the  necessity of framing a uniform  mining law for the Dominion.  Divisions of opinion have arisen  as to which department should  administer a uniform law if enacted and this point will also be  discussed with the ministers.

A turn of  the lever instantly changes the draft co the fire is quickened  or checked, at will. Turned on, McClary's Magnet Wood  Furnace produces the strongest heat in a few minutes; and  the nickelled steel tubes radiate this heat for hours after  the draft is shut off. Because of this stored heat McClary's  Magnet Wood Furnace is economical and a continuous roaring fire is unnecessary. The heat that goes up the smoke pipe  of ordinary wood furnaces, goes into the register pipes of the  Magnet. Like the position of the damper, the Magnet Wood  Furnace is right all through. Right in principle, right in construction ; right in materials. See the Magnet at the McClary  agent's in the nearest town.
