Owing to the recent  improvement in the Trans-Siberian  Railway service, the journey between  Valdivostok and Moscow having been  accelerated twenty four hours, it is  now possible to get round the globe in  in 37 days- Supposing the passenger  leaves London on a Monday, he  would reach Yokohama on the second Monday after his departure, and  by taking one of the fast steamers of  the Canadian Pacific line (which  leaves Yokohama on a Tuesday),  Vancouver could be reached in  twenty-six days from London, and,  of course, it is easy enough if the  steamers connect at New York, to  reach London in eleven days after  leaving Vancouver.  The Christmas holidays begin  this year on the 16th of December for all public schools of this  province, and open on Tuesday,  the 3rd of January, The very  early date of closing is in accord  with the clause in the School Act  which says that the Christmas  holidays shall consist of the two  weeks preceding the first Monday  in January. As Monday will be  generally observed as a holiday,  the department of education has  decided that the schools shall be  opened on Tuesday, January 3,  1911. "  There is going to be strenuous  opposition in the United  States  House of  Representatives to the  President's proposal for the fortification of  the Panama Canal.  The objections to the proposal  are two-fold.    One is that it is  a gratuitious assumption  act of  hostility to all the other nations,  and the other is that the expense  will be   enormous.    Representative Livingstone of Georgia says  that, if there  are to be fortifications at all.  they will have to be  not only at both ends, but for the  whole length of the canal on both  sides aud will cost billions of dollars to   erect  and   an  unknown  amount to maintain.  himself, and secretary   to   notify  neutral teams.

The  outlook  is encouraging   for  the  present  and promising   for   the  future.      Greenwood    is    going  ahead.  But while this is the case so  far as the material interests of  the community are concerned,  there are other considerations of  no less importance whicli ought  not to be lost sight of. To my  mind one of the most pressing  and urgent needs is that of a well  selected library���if possible with  a reading room in connection���  accessible to the public as a  whole. At present we have  nothing of this character and no  provision is made in a general  way to meet the mental aud intellectual mind, or to stimulate  the mental and intellectual life  of the people. It seems to me  that this is a serious lack, and I  know there are others who share  that opinion.  At present  we are engaged in  the   erection   of   a   commodious  skating and curling rink���an enterprise that is thoroughly commendable and   against which  I  can see no reasonable objections,  but while we provide  the means  of physical recreation and enjoyment, should we not  also devote  some  thought to providing the  means of intellectual enjoyment  and culture?   Such an undertaking would not necessarily be  an  expensive one.    I believe it could  be   established  at a   reasonable  cost, and that if once established  it would be a source of pleasure  and profit to many whose opportunities in this respect are necessarily limited.  Thanking you  for space  and  with best wishes of the season to  yourself and readers, I am,  Yours sincerely,  J. A. Petrie  able barrier to the will of the  people. The Common could do  as thev did in the days of King  Charles; tbey could refuse to vote  supplies, that is refuse to vote  money. But it is uulikely that  King George would expose the  throne to such a storm of popular  disapproval as would make it totter  The Situation.  With the prospects of the government   being returned with a  slightly increased majority, newspaper readers are beginning to  ask  "what will happen   next?"  Only one thing can happen, the  Lords must go.    The probability  is that the Lords will bow to the  will of the   people,   lest  worse  should befall them.    Should they  remain recalcitrant the Commons  may call upon King George to  withdraw   from   the   House   of  Lords the  power of veto.   Even  should His Majesty decline to do  so, this would not be an insuper-  Coal vs. Oil.  In speakint*; of the efheipnev of  oil  burning locomotives  as compared   with   those  burning coal,  Mr  Busteed of the C. P. R   mentioned that while in the soutii he  travelled on a train   pulled bv an  oil burner which, assisted by one  other engine, hauled the Irain up  a 2 2  per cent grade   while both  injectors   were iu  operation   and  the fireman   actually experienced  some   difficulty   in   keeping   the  steam pressure on the t��>i ler down  to 200  pounds.    Such  a   feat on  such a grade as this would be impossible   with the   use  ul'   coal,  even were both injector-, not forcing cold  water  into   the  boiler.  Mr.  Busteed  instanced  this case  as an  example of what  is being  accomplished by oil burning locomotives.  Mr. Busteed states that the  cost of convertin" locomotives  from coal to oil fuel is slight.  At the present time the 0. P.

HOCKEY LEAGUE  Outlook for the Future.  To the Editor of the Times.  Dear Sir���As we are approaching the Xmas season and with  it the close of another vear, will  you kindly allow me the use of  a short space for the explanation  of a few reflections and suggestions on subjects which ought, I  think, to be matters of public interest.  No one, it seems to me, who  has the well being of the city at  heart can but feel gratified with  the revival of business activity  that has been apparent during  the last few months. The year  that is closing has, in some respects not been exceptional in the  historv of Greenwood. It opened under favorable auspices.

Friday, December 16 1910  The B. C. Mining Exchange  The November number of this  invaluable magazine to all mining men, -".nd also with general  iulerpslins* ma!tor to the public,  has a lartfn showino* of the  Steamhnal district with illustration and clearly denned. Its  stroug point is that it is of local  production, and the miuing interests of the entire K. C. has its  special correspondents at all  points, that enables those interested to place before them information authentic and at first  hands. We give a few clippings  frum the editorial portion:  If the preseut activity prevail-  iu tbe camps of Un* Boundary  and Kootenays is any evidence,  the present year is likely to prove  a record oue in both production  and development. That capital  is coming in at a very rapid  rate for the purpose of opening  up the mineral wealth of these  desirable sections is abundantly  evident by the records of properties bonded or purchased which  are appearing every day.  One may presume that there  are fraudulent companies in  British Columbia. The country  is so rich that it would be odd if  there was not. You do not find  camp-followers lingering aiound  a defeated army, nor do you find  fleas on a dead dog. The richer  the country the more it will attract the professional plunderer.  And British Columbia is very  rich indeed. But all this is not  to say that any man or paper is  justified in the wholesale denunciation of every enterprise which  is struggling to develop 6he  country's resources on a very  limited amount of capital.  Three Masses on Christmas  There never   was   a  child of  such dignity  bora; the birth of a  child  never  brought such great  blessing unto the world.    Whilst  the  angels praised  God, saying:  "Glory to  God  in the Highest,"  the  Holy Church  celebrates the  joyful eyent by the most precious  gift she possesses, tbe Holy Sacrifice of  Mass.    She  offers it up  three  times on   this  day to give  glorv to God  in  the highest, in  regard to the three  fold birth of  Jesus Christ.  The  temporal  birth of   Jesus  Christ   is signified  by the First  Mass, the gospel   of  which gives  the  history of   Christ's birth   at  Bethlehem.    Jesus,   whose   com-  1 ing was promised  in   the garden  of paradise,   whom   the   nations  had expected  during   four thousand years, is  born of  the Virgin  Mary by the miraculous power of  the Holy  Ghost,  thus becoming  ft member of   an  humau family.  The  birth  of  Jesus   Christ  is a  manifestation of  divine  veracity  and fidelity,   mercy and justice,  wisdom   and  omnipoturce.    The  circumstances of his   birth represent Jesus as Saviour, who was  to atone for our  pride, disobedience,   avarice aud sensuality; as  teacher, who  was to  instruct us  about the real   value of  earthly  things, and  invites  us  to follow  Him.      The   spiritual   birth   of  Jesus Christ in  our hearts is signified   by the second   mass, the  gospel  of  which  represents the  shepherds   as partakers   of   the  good   tidings  and   celestial joy.  Iesus is  "the  true  light, which  enlighteneth    every   man    that  cometh into this world   *    *   *  As many as received him, to them  he have power  to be made Sons  of  God."���John   7, 8-12.

The   attack  comes  on very suddenly.    No symptoms  are observed on   Saturday night;  the   p-atient   sleeps   well, wakes  well,   and   on  Sunday   morning  eats a hearty breakfast.    The attack begins to  come  on  towards  church time  and continues with  varying severity until the services are over.    As  dinner time approaches the patient rapidly re-  recovers, grows  quite easy,   and  again   eats  a   hearty  meal.    In  the afternoon   he has quite  recovered   and  enjoys himself  accordingly.

It is at this  season of  the year  that the rascally  alderman,   who  has  spent  the  spring  and  summer  taking |  bribes and betraying public trust,  suddenly conceives   a   rancorous  hatred    for   the    harmless   beer  merchant.    Itis at this season of  tbe year that the rogue "reform"  preacher, fresh  from a summer's  loafing in  Eastern   or   European  watering places, returns to abuse  the   town   whose   good  natured  charity  has been  paying for his  holiday,   by  telling  its   citixens  that   they   are  soden with   vice  and  immorality.    Finally,  it   is  at this season  of   the year  that  certain  newspapers get  very excited about wild-cats, and develop  a   most   touching  solicitude  for  the safety of that tender and  shrinking plant, the capitalist.  They are exceedingly worried  lest the investor should be led  astray by designing and unscrupulous company promoters���who  do not advertise in tbeir columns.  And, in order to save these inno-' year  The Mines at Beaverdale  Owners   of   mining    property  around Beaverdale  are  rejoicing  at   the thoughts  of   the Kettle  Valley   railroad    now   building  throusrh that section.    A number  of mines will reopen  which have  been idle for several years owing  to the lack  of  transportation facilities.    Ore was  formerly hauled by wagon to Midway at a cost  as high as $18 per ton.    This ore  was  sorted, and   run $150 to the  ton, but   even  this   high   grade  mineral did  not pay owing to its  distance from the smelter.  Many  thousands of tons of  $50  ore are  now lying in the old dumps which  only awaits  the  new  railroad to  transport it to the smelter.  Beaverdale is destined to become a great mining camp in the  near future. Already several  properties are working, and the  railroad will have something to  keep it busy immediately upon  its arrival at this camp.  A number of prominent citizens  of Greenwood are interested in  the mines at Beaverdale, and are  building great hopes on the eaTly  development of their claims.  Some even are so optimistic as to  assert that a smelter will be built  at Beaverdale  within the coming  made   the   Sons   of    God."

To the People of Greenwood :  The editor of the Boundary  Creek Times has kindly permitted me through the medium of  his excellent paper to wish you  all a happy Christmas and most  prosperous New Year, and I  avail myself of his permission  with the greatest of pleasure.  Situated in the midst of these  glorious hills, infialing this perfect heaven-sent air, we ought to  indeed to be a happy people. But  these advantages are of very little use to us unless they lead us  to think mi*fch and often of God  who gives them. It may be that  they have this effect upon us,  though there is very little outward evideuce of the fact. We  are told that Greenwood has  seen its Worst days and is beginning a great improvement which  in about two years' time will astonish the most sanguine among  us; here again evidence is not  very apparent. But the grace of  hope is strong in our people and  we sincerely trust that realization  will be its reward. Parishoners  of Greenwood, uphold religion,  1 pull well together, support one  1 another and the city is bound to  I proBper and real happiness be our  t constant environment.  Unfortunately our  church re-  [mained closed for six months, ex  cepting when our arch deacon  kindly came for a Sunday. In  that time many, 1 fear, grew  careless about services, others  naturallv wandered off to other  churches, some of whom have  forgotten to returu. Let us hope  you will never again be without a vicar. In October last we  welcomed our new Bishop, the  Right Reverend A. V. De Pen-  cior, who held a confirmation at  St. Jude's church, addressed the  members of our guild and met in  conference the church council.  One of the results of his visit has  been the transfer of Phoenix,  Midway and Rock Creek from  our parish to that ot Grand  Forks. This very considerably  lightens the work and anxiety of  your vicar. What next year may  have in store for us, we may not  know. We will leave it in the  hands of Him to whom the  psalmist referred wheu he said:  "My times are in Thy hand."  M. F. Hilton, Vicar.  .

The  generous firebox is built so that the water heats very  rapidly as it passes through the water front, and  gives a plentiful supply.

It is said that this company  is closing its slaughter house at Greenwood, which they have already made  their headquarters for the boundary  country and will.transfer it to Prince  ton.

Because the "Drys" of Powwow  County, Kentucky, used the Bible as  an emblem on their ballots, in a recent local option election, and carried  the county, the state Court of Appeal yesterday declared the election  void. On each ballot was the picture of an open book with the words  "Holy Bible" under it. The  "Wets" for an emblem, used the  picture of a whisky and a glass out of  which protruded the head of a snake.  At the first trial witnesses testified  that they were told that if they wanted to go to heaven they should make  their mark under the Bible. One  said he wanted to vote "wet" but  feared that if he did not heed the  sign of the Bible the Almighty would  wreck vengeance upon him. In the  opinion handed down yesterday it is  said a statute prohibits the use of the  Bible as an emblem on election bal-  ots.    Members of the school management committee of the board of education of Chicago, drew a race discrimination line against "the Yellow  Peril" in the schools. They decided  to rescind their previous action,  which permitted both Japenese and  Chinese to attend the schools, and  ask the board at its next meeting to  adopt a rule which will bar adult  Chinese from securing a free education in Chicago. .  The new rule, which the board is  expected to pass, provides that no  adults shall be admitted unless they  are citizens, or have filed their first  papers, or expressed an intention to  do so. In the later instance they  must file their papers within one  month or be excluded from attendance. The Chinese are no: named  in the resolution, that the fact that  they are ineligible for citizenship  effectually bars them from securing an  education.  Mr. C. E. Sanford, of Weston,  King's Co., N. S., a Justice of Peace  for the county, and a Deacon of the  Baptist Church in Berwick says: I  have used Zam-Buk for piles and  found it a splendid remedy. It cured  me."  Mr. Thomas Pearson, of Prince  Albert, Sask., writes: "I must thank  you for the benefit I have received  from the use of Zam-Buk. Last  summer I had a fever, which left me  with piles. I started to use Zam-Buk  and found it gave me relief, so I continued with it. After usino- three or  four boxes, it effected a complete  cure."  Zam-Buk wili also be found a sure  cure for cold sores, chapped hands,  frost bite, ulcers, ee/ema, blood-  poison, varicose sores, scalp sores,  ringworm, inflamed patches, babies'  eruptions and chapped places, cuts,  burns, bruises, and skin injuries generally.
