 ALL TIIE NEWS  of the CRESTON  DISTRICT  All Roads ih E'etst and W&st Koeienay Lead to Greaton  No. 1o   4th   Year.  CRESTON,, B.C., FRIDAY, DEC. 22nd   1911  SiNeir   opms 5c  fllfflCTlIK  uiiiiiui ivinu  DAHO WILL JOIN  ESTON RANCH  ommissioners In Charge Of Recla*  mation Scheme Will Confer With  Local  People At Mass Meeting  TIMBER   MARKET   IS  ���������  'he ranchers and business men in  estou Valley will soon be asked to  nd a public mass meeting in the  f-erests   of the reclamation* of .the  lands fronting the town.   The Re-  w at the instance of a couple of the  chers has  taken up the matter of  laiming the  lands and has written  the commissioners  of   the  Idaho  nties that are interested in the pro-  Ijtion across^the line.   A reply has  a received from A. J. Kent of Bon's Ferry who is one of the leaders  lhe movement across ihe line and  hforms The Review  ifehat he and  colleagues will  visit-5 Creston  to  over .the matter in the near fut-  1'r. Kent is of the "opinion that the  ject. closely concerns one of the  jt productive areas of land in. the  htern Hemisphere and his letter is  fart as follows;' - v--i -  shall take this matter up, at^once  f,i Commissioners of both Districts  Chere is no doubt as. to the feasibil-  ind success of this undertaking. In  mind, this is one, of. the greatest  most productive . areas of. land in  Western Hemisphere.  re, as a commission,. agree that  twork should be done in widening  Narrows so as toilet out'the over-  Dec. 5, by the voters of District No . 6  tbe proposal to bond the district for  the purpose of reclaiming the bottom  lands was carried practically unanimously.  "The determination to redeem these  lands from the overflow means more  to the|Kootenai valley than any event  in Its history. It means that forty  thousand acres of the most fertile land  on earth will be rendered available for  cultivation/ Ten acres of this laud  will easily support an average family.  This means that these bottom lands  will eventually become tha-homes of  thousands of settlers.  Chas.   Q.   Reeder Interested  .t  ' J?rior to the election, Chas. G. Reeder, of Spokane, outlined the plan proposed, the most important feature of  which comprises the widening of the  narrows at the outlet of Kootenay  Lake. This will provide for the escape  of excess waters.   That this plan   was  Several! Men frf ere To Purchase Poles   But Prices Are  Low  unanimously accepted^-speaks ^well for  advise you when we can  meet] ifcs feasifojjjfcy."  -A -Great Uude&tkijtpy -.  y^ .^- ^^ b- s ��������� ������he j^^ people are  going ahead with every idea, of, being  succeasfal and they are practically determined to win out in-order to make  their property worth thousands of  dollars more and to draw-people to the  district. They speak of the widening  of the Narrows without reference to  the difficulties that they will encounter in the effort to have this done.  The Creston ranchers can enlighten  them as to the troubles they will have  t;o cope with and both sides will be  of great advantage to the other. The  Creston people living closer to the  seat of trouble can give the Idaho people some pointer.'* and no doubt the  atter can offer some good suggestions  It was because of lhe vital nature of  this project that the Review took hold  of the project with so much vigor and  the matter of publicity will be woll  taken care of.  6 is  across the  Arousing Much Interest  Ire" drainnge  of district No  isiug much    interest  ler and it affects the Creston Val-  fust aa much as it .does the people  have voted to bond their district  edertodothe work.     The Idaho  rie figure that-the area in question  support and make homes for thou-  ts of homeseokera and on this end  ,he question  tne   Bonners Ferry  lid in a recent issue says;  tfc tho election held at Copeland on  With a number of pole and tie buyers in Creston Valley this week the  timber business had the appearance  of. some activity but the amount of  business done at the prices offered  was low in proportion to the. aaumibeif.  of purchasers. It is very likely  however that the pole and tie business will pick up in the spring as the  C.P.R. has been looking around V the  valley f0r some weeks with an intention of opening up several camps  Here during the summer months.  There is considerable pole timber  being moved in the vicinity of Port  Hill, the Western Lumber Company,  of Spokane, having a,couple of substantial contracts near the line. Geo.  Prichard, one of the company's inspectors/ was among the timber men  here this week and he says that several more contracts will be entered  into as soon as the right timber can  be found. The timber business  across the line is dead owing to the I  country in the Creston Valley: for  some weeks and next summer expects  to have a couple camps, at least, at  'work here taking out ties. As these  will be close to Creston, the town  can look for considerable activity  .during the summer months if,the  plans of the railroad work out.  A. C. YOder, representing the Lhwl-  sey Bros;*-' Lumber Co., of Spokane,  ie another of the buyers that was  here: this'week. He would like to  have a couple carload of poles.  LOOAL NEWS  P. R.

The K. P. Lodge will hold its regular meeting Tuesday evening insteaf'l  of Monday, V  George Jacks is threatened with appendicitis. ,������-  I  "Mayor" Fred Little is again missing  from his old haunts.   The broken rib* i  have   been   giving   him considerable  pain and trouble.  Jack Williams is back from a hunt-  ing trip.  The children of Christ Church Snnday  School are invited to a Christmas party  on Thursday af tern ion Dec. 28, in the*  Mercantile Hall at 5 o'clock.  All the. parents and members of the>!  Congregation    are invited to join  the-  party at 7 o'clock in  the  evening   and,  take part in the games and amusements.  Returning from a few days trip thru,  the RosBland countries whero he looked  into the land and frnit raising question  from many angles, R. Lamont is more  conyinced than ever that Oreston Valley is far superior to the adjoining districts and at the same time he gathered  somo facts of extended land deals which  may result in Creston becoming a distributing point for a number of the tributary valleys and districts around here.  Probably the moBt important inquiry  which Mr. Lamont made while away  was one into the recent purchase of  lands worth a haif million dollars in the  vicinity of Salmo by the Crinadian Pacific Railroad. This land is rich in timber and mines and when the timber is  cleared away will bs of immense value  as a fruit raising country, It is less  than 40 miles from Creston and in the  fntnre may have a big bearing on the  advancement of this valley. In commenting on the probalities that might  Summit Creek route has for some tiara  been known as a mineral district and it  i  shonld be an asset in a freight way*  Summit Route Old One  "In the olden days, before there was  any C, P.

It is jsnt as feasible  now as it was then and is the easiest  pass io oope -with alesg that ridge,  Just at the summit there wonld of  bourse be little business for the company  because of the great amount of V snow  bnt the rest of the route wonld be pro*  fitable from a freight standpoint at  least.

Tho property now has  about 1500 Atopic trees of good commercial varieties planted upon it and  ls considered ono. of tho bout plocos of  ground in that neighborhood.

Fire which was first disdovered about 10:30 today wipedl  out the house ou the combination ranch about a mile north!  of Crestou owned by P. Maun, P. W. Foote. G. F. HorspoolJ  aud S. W. George. The blaze is believed to have been caus-v  ed by a defective,flue although this is not certain as the owners were working ou the ranch a.t the time. All the furni ���������:  ture and personal effects of the ineu were burned and none:  jof the loss which will amount to nearly $1500 wis covered -i;  by insurance. ' The neighbors are caring, (or the men until  they can fix up temporary quarters in the outbuildings and  barn which were saved. These buildings were saved after-  some strenuous work on the part of the owners and neighbors ���������  and there was no breeze to carry-the flames.  Shortly before midnight fire was also discovered in the;  ew Grady block on Fonrth avenue.

R. bought a valuable tract  of land over in the Salmo couxitxy 'fjpr  which it paid cleee to a half'million dollars and have completed a survey of - a  line from Trail into their new property.  It looks to me as though this should  work to the advantage of Creaton in  the near future. Salmo is only forty  miles aorosB the Summit Pass and it is  only 14 miles on into Trail. Tbere are  great possibilities and one of the biggest  is a railroad line cutting from Creston  across the Summit Pass and on through  Salmo, Trail, and' Grand Forks to the  Coast. Such a line would pass threugh  a mineral, timber and fruit area whioh  das no superior in the world. Salmo is  rioh in timber nnd minerals now and in  a short time will be raising fruit.

If on? were asked to nnmo the author, who had written the greatest number ol' novels about. Canada, the answer would probably be. "Why, Ralph  Connor, of course." y. But the Winnipeg clergyman by lioV'mVeans holds'.'the  record. There is a vigorous little Englishman over in London who has actually written and published sixteen  novels, the setting of which is laid in  Canada. And it has not, beeii,: longdistance, imaginative writing, either,  as one might expect, but the result  of numerous personal visits to the  Diminion. . . ��������� **  G.  BA Burgin, for that is this prolific author's yriame, firfet came to Canada as a young, man, 'when, after acting .as secretary to the' Armenian lie-  form     Commission,     he     contracted  typhoid   fever,   and  was  sent  to  this  side   of   the* Atlantic 'to.  convalesce.  Ever   since,   Canada  has  had   a   fascination for him, and he like3 noth-  j nig   better   than   to   board   an   ocean  i liner  in  June   and  cross  to  Quebec,  whence   he--, visits   different   parts   of  the     country     during     the     summer  months.    Like  most  writers,  he  had  a  lev  | story   being  Free -Press .by our own Canadian,  ���������.Robert.���������Barr,'. with, whom he struck up  j a lasting friendship, and one which led  i to his receiving the appointment of  ; sub-editor of The Idler wh-n Barr  ! launched that magazine in 1392.  ]     Mr.   Burgin   hns  a  remarkable  out-  ��������� put of novels. On March 7 his fortieth  j book was published, and he has al-  ! ready completed two more to appear  j later in the year. Then he is under  ) contract to produce ���������'three novels in  7 1U12. He bus also written hundreds  ; of shoi't stories. All his work is ohar-  . notorized by a cheery optimism ami a  ; bright unforced humor.

THE BRAVEST DAY OF ALL THE  YEAR  While passing days are short and cold and drear,  While nights are long, the longest of the year,  While cruel   winter solrice  reigns supreme  0*er earth and air, o'er field and wood and stream*  Glad Christmas comes with glowing heart of cheer,  The brightest, bravest day of  all   the  year.  The old star and its wonderful story of "Peace on earth,  good will to men" never grows old. Once each year the King  of Ynle goes abroad over all lands and it is a season of jollity and mirth, of rest and enjoyment, of renewals of friendships and of family reunions. Christmas Day 'is the festival  of the home - the great human festival. It is a day given over to the heart ��������� His love coming on earth to be spread lavishly through human kindness.     On this day  above all days  His love is behind all things - His love, his good will must  enlarge our thoughts and give tenderness to our afflictions.  But Christmas is not a season of tears. It is one of joy.  The cares of life are usually forgotten; families separated for  the year try to reunite and mingle together around the home  fireside again; friends and relatives  scattered by circumstance  of fortune far from the home circle remember each other by  present or at least in thoughts.     Year after year the Christmas season preaches to us of the gladness which can belong  to the humblest home.   A little thought, a little jollity, an  interchange of joys and knowledge���������these bind together  the  home circles with a true feeling of comradship on  Christmas Day.    Man may find joy in his work, in the thiugs that  bloom, in riches - but on this day he finds that keener than  the joys of  these is the one joy-that winch comes   of being  surrounded by his own flesh and blood.    Human can  bring  to human a gladness which no flower, no riches  or   fruit of  %oi man's hand can bring.    Much of the pain and sorrow of  4ifesmany of the daily troubles  would   be prevented   if the  ^Christmas spirit-this joy and jollity of human with human a-  fi round the fireside-were allowed to pervade the life of the in-  vidual and of the community  throughout the  year.     Thia  Christmas spirit should de a rebuke and still an inspiration  i ���������  The Creston Review has undergone some changes since  last Christmas and in wishing the citizens of thi-; broad Valley and the hundreds of readers outside its limits, the compliments of the season we desire to predict a prosperou  year for the Valley. We will endeavor to produce a paper  which will grow better every week anb one which will be  worthy of entering your homes as a news conveyance and a  chronicle of events as they transpire.

As Only Male Adult cf the Royal Family In England at Present, the Son  of Canada's Governor-General - Is  Acting as Monarch Just Now ��������� Is  Very Popular In Great Brita'pv'and  Is Envoy Extraordinary.  How the functions of the King nre  being exorcised iti ihe United Kii'g-  dom during His Majesty's absence in  India is as. follows:  Provisions have been made by Order  in Council i'or delegating the exercise  of..certain of the executive (unctions  of the crown yuriug the King's absence. The langu-ize of the order i.-  neoessarily wide, but as His Majesty  during his ubsence is in " daily'; telegraphic comuumicatioti \vith.'bi'a'-.'Mih-.  istcrs, all matters of gravity and im-,  F" tnne������>' are inordinary coursbysul)--  mitted to. hini. 'AA'',...,.  The persons nannxl in the Commis-  sion  are:  H.R.H. Prinee Arthur of Connaught.  The Archbishop of 'Canterbury-.' '.'������������������  The Lord   Chancellor.    A      ";   v/  The Lord President ��������� of .the Council  (Lord Morley of-Blackburn).  ���������No.legislation is needed for the purpose.  The practice of appointing a Regent  during the absence of a Sovoreigsi  abroad VinS boon in abeyance aiiice.  the reign of Henry Ul. The appoint-.'  m?ut of a Regent would involve the  passing of u special act of; Parliament;  as a Regency Act applies* only to the  death of tho Sovei-eign \vh_u the heir  to tlie thi'tiue��������� i**t under a^e.  That the precedent of 1821, is followed, tliat when Hi?

The appointments specify the powers', to be exerc'ml. and are 'nvade  under the Great Seal, .so that.'.the.' assent of Parliament, is not necessary.

But they  cover a multitude of duties, such as  issving of warrants ...aud-. ���������letters p.i-  tent, the making of appointments, and  the granting of licenses and dispensations tha: require the King's authority.  With, his father, the Duke of Connaught, now in Canada, Prince Arthur  was the only adult "male.'member .of.  the royal family l������������t in-England.when ���������  the King sailed for India., He will  ceebrate his twenty-ninth birthday on  Jan. 13 next, before.the King's return.  Prinee Arthur is a favorite with the  Sublic. Crowds know well his open,  andsome face, with it's cl^ar.Ablue-  eyes, and his tall, straight figure���������hp.  is the tallest member of the royal family���������and they keen a special cheer for  him. , He has always been popular  at Eton, at Sandhurst, in the regi-  mentsrto which he has been attached,  and. during his many royal missions  abroad. He is a sportsman; Vinterested  in all athletics, a fine --'shot," an4 an  excellent horseman. . He ; has proved  his worth as a hunter of' *big game  during visits to Canada;A East: Africa  and Russia. In Canada he won gold -*n  opinions; the peopleythere quickly  found, that he had "noside."  To be a watch and clock maker was  bis ambiti-on wh-m a ohild, but any  desire in this direction was checked  by his father, who made the boy go  round with a man who V-wound th-e  household clocks at Bagshot Park.  Prince Arthur found that the occupation lacked excitement, and his ambition turned elsewhere. After Eton  he passed through Sandhurst, and jvn*  gazetted to a second lieutenancy^ in  the 7th (Queen's Own) Hussars in  May, 1901, during the South African  war.  When the regiment was ordered to  the front.Prince Arthur,, as the youngest subaltern, was left, to his intense  regret, at tbe cavalry depot. In 1903,  when a full lieutenant, he'went but  to join his regiment in South Africa  in oharge of a draft of recruits'. 'Hip  service in the Transvaal was cut short  by a severe attack of dysentery, which  necessitated his being invalided home.  To make himself, a, thorough efficient  officer he has undergone instruction  courses at the signalling and musketry  schools. He has served with the Ito*Ml  Horse Artillery and the Scots Grrys.-  As representative of the Sovereign,  Prince Arthur has played many parts.  During the illness .of King Edward in  1902 he was' deputed to show honor  to the Shah, who stated tl.at tbe kindness, tnct,,nnd courtesy of thu prince  would be one of'h'is happiest recollections of Europe, Prince Arthur's flrwt  foreign mission was in D&cembef.  190-1, whon he represented the King  in Rome at the baptism of tho infant  heir to the Italian throno. In quick  succession'' bo acted as the King's  envoy nt the funeral of the Dowager  Duchess' ot. Saxe-Coburg-Qotha; and  at tho openini*: of tho now Protestant  cathedral in- Berlin.

Acme   of   Safety    and^ Comfort* Are  Found   In  His  Majesty's Special.  When King George travels by railway, he does so in remarkable safety  and comfort. The royal train represents the acme of the railway carriage-  builder's art. Witli their silvermount-  ed bedsteads, and easy chairs, and  window draperies, it is difficult to  realize that the apartments are see-'  tions of a railway carriage, while the  smooth, easy, and almost silent run-  ning of the train -serves to heighten  the illusion. The various royal ,sa-^  loons used on different lines are built  ami owned by the respective- companies, tlie royal party paying their  fare-s like age charge for the special.*  The prnernm of running having been  completed, a most interesting * and  complicated part of railway organization begins. Enoh company has a  chart or "visualized time-table," as  it has been called. This is divided  vertically into twenty-four equal  spacer, one for every hour of the day.  and inch hour is further sub-divided  into minutes,, the half-hour, quaiter-  hour, and live minutes', intervals being denoted by darker lines. This  t.inie-'-cnle ii then divided horizontally into n dU-tance-seale. the station*  and junctions being shown on the  left hand margin -in their relative  positions.  On the chart the running of the  trains is indicated by means of lines  drawn from point to point across the  scale, and colored to show the class  of traffic���������a red line denotes an express train, and so on. The course'of  the royal, train is set down on this  wonderful traffic chart, and when-  over the line cuts another.that other  'must be delayed, >and the purple  track allowed to proceed through the  gap in safety. A special working  time-table is next, prepared, and cop--  ies of it are distributed ;t6 the officials concerned along the;Ventire route.  The private detective .department of  the palace also advises .the police  authorities of the districts through  which the train will pass of the hours  of running, so that additional protection may be provided at different  places.

At a high point of the Knockmeai-  dovvn Mountains, in County Waterfqrd.  Ireland, there is a settlement of Tra'p-  pist monks, who welcome the passing  stranger with mediaeval courtesy.

As Athe oil has to be 'cf the best  quality, it will b������ seen how expensive is the process, One of the most  important parts of the operation is  the cleaning out of the elephants'  large flat ears. This is effected by  means of-a hard, long-fibred -brush.  The animals' toes, have also to . ho  pared with a file, and great precriu:  tions taken tint to hurt the huge but  sensitive; creatures.

WHAT CANALS ACCOMPLISH.  Manchester  Owes' Its  Wealth .ito   Its  Great Ship Canal. ���������  .The Canadian trade commissioner at  Manchester Mr. W. G. Egan. In his  last report, says: "It will perhaps be  of interest to Canadians to know that  Manchester rates aa the second city  of the Empire, nnd this is established  if you give commercial pre-eminence  its proper weight. The bankers' clearing house returns for Manchester in  the nine months ending September  last amounted to the stupendous sum  of $1,215,000,000. No other city except  London gets anywhere n<-ar these fissures, and they are only $215,000,000  short of the. clearing house returns of  Liverpool, Birmingham, Ncwcastle-on-  Tyiie, Bristol, Leicester and Nottingham all put topcth'C."  The phenomenal prosperity of Manchester is doubtless due to the Manchester ship canal. Before that work  was constructed the entire district  was suffering from severe trade depression. Mills were idle, industries  at a standstill, and people leaving the  district Jn great numbers. The opening of the canal marked a revival of  trade which has continued ever since.  It is stated that over 10,000 mills ujul  other buildings were erected along  the route in the first three years after the completion of the canal. The  traffic has grown from less than  1,000,000 tons in 1894 to over 5.000,000  tons annually. The quantity of grain  imported direct to Manchester during  the last nine months; amounted to.  364,337 tons, against 35G.779y tons for  the corresponding period of 1010, and  322,139 tons for the corresponding.period  of .1909.        ���������'���������   y'������������������.       - -A      '������������������ "'.A,'  '-What"the Manchester ship canal'ha*  been to "Manchester, the Georgian Bay  Canal, giving a through deep Waterway to the head of .the-"Lakes, "will be  to .Montreal.

For gross worldly wisdom it would  be  diflieult to  surpass the  "Ten  De-A  mandments"  hanging  in  one  of  the  many salmon canneries at Steveston,  western  Canada:  1. Don't lie. It wastes'my time and  yours. I am sure to catch you in  the end, and that is the wrong end.  ��������� 2. Watch your work, not the clock.  A long day's work makes a long day  short; and a short day's work makes  my face long, "y "  3. Give me more than I expect,  and-I will give you more than you.  expect. I can afford to increase your  pay if you iiicrease my profits.  4. You owe so much to yourself you  cannot afford to owe anybody else.  Keep out'of debt, or keep out of my  .Shops.,;     ':���������'  5. Dishonesty is never an accident.  Good men, like good women, never  see temptation when -they meet it.  6. Mind your own business, and  in time you'll have a business of  your, own to mind.     .   '".���������'������������������'���������yx  7. Don't do anything here which  hurts your self-respect. An employe  who is willing to steal for me is  willing- to steal from' me. ' .'���������  8. It is none of my business what  ��������� youVdoyat' night.    But if. dissipation  effects what you do the next day, and  you do half as niuch as I demand,  you'll last half as long as you hoped.  9. Don't tell me what I'd like to  hear, but what I ought to hear. I  don't want a valet to my vanity, but  one for my dollnrs.  10. Don't kick if I kick. If you're  worth while correcting you're worth  while keeping. I don't waste time  cutting specks out of rotten apples.
