All  told  160  " The new cookhouse of the company  was utilized for a dance on Saturday  night last which attracted a large  crowd, including some from town.  The floor was in line shape and with  Canyon City orchestra music and a  sumptous lunch the best of good  times was had.  Pte. Brock Witherhead, a returned  soldier with almost three years overseas service to his credit, was here  from Calgary, Alta., for Christmas  with Mr- and Mrs. Witherhead at the  ranch.  auc loiuo auu rniiu weather- of the  past week has about taken off all the  sleighing and log hauling is almost at  a standstill   until some more of the  beautiful arrives.

Witherhead was home from  Jaffray to spend a few days with his  wife and family at their ranch here,  returning the latter part of the week  agreeable for outdoor operations, but  with no frost in the ground the moisture will certainly be of great benefit  to the orchards, after the und'niv dry  fall.  Miss Tresa Churchill was hostess to  the youiiges- generatiara oh Christmas  eve to an old-time yuletide entertainment including a Christmas tree,  which was yery much appreciated by  both parents and children.  The Knitting Club meeting this  week was at Mrs. Stewart's on Wednesday afternoon, and there was a  good turnout despite the disagreeable  weather.  School re-opens for the new year on  Monday morning. This section was  very largely represented at the. mas-  qucr&dc ball in town Monday night,  former principal King of this school  getting the prise for the best gents'  costume.

C. F. Hayes. Owner and Editor.  CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY. JJSSS.   4  &$Bmt*������i������El*0>^J������    SSL mm, -<**>SS2.S������^S-  With the B.C. legislature announced to convene in 1918 session  the fore part of February interest  is already warming up in the prospective deliberations of our , provincial lav/ makers.  Foremost come the residents  across the Kootenay River who  are expecting something tangible  on the ferry removal question.  The matter has had some attention  during the  past season  and  hope  with floating ice or early freeze-ups  both of which cause much inconvenience and much extra labor for  passengers and ferryman. ,. ; , .  It is to be, hoped now the ferry  question is in a.fair w������.y to be  settled one way or the other, that  these two features will have  thorough investigation before a  final decision is made. With the  ever-increasing activity in hay  cutting and the lumbering operations across the Kootenay the  ferry question vitally effects more  snan tn������ score of more r-eslcisnis in  the acros8-the-river community.  -V..  on the assurance of  member for Kaslo that "if the  people interested wished the ferry  moved then moved it would be."  Notwithstanding this very circumspect guarantee, however, the  impression has got- abroad since  the visit of Engineer McPherson. a  ���������.  .���������*���������������������������"  f  in���������������������������.p ' y?.

The Review does not fear  government inaction on the score  of removrl costs, because the de-,  parfcment has no safe way of  estimating such expense until it  calls for tenders on the job. This  is their announced policy, and the  common sense way, now that B.C.  is up against the proposition of  making one dollar do the work  that two, and even three, dollars  used to do in the palmy days of  road boss day labor operating.  Living across the Kootenay are  still a few citizens fairly well  equipped ande so thoroughly alive  to the necessity of the ferry's removal that they should be willing  i.o uo all the necessary work at a  charge that will satisfy the most  exacting economist in the works  department.  As to whether the installation  of the ferry at the new location  would make it possible for the two  rivers to merge at this point and  produce other undesirable complications, this is a detail that  should have more than passing investigation. Men who have some  reputation for veracity and who  know the river for twenty years  back, confidently assert that the  new location has been chosen be  ��������� au5<:- of tile lack of current in the  river at this spot, thus eliminating  >-ver5' possible danger of the  necessary excavating so weakening  the hank an to allow tho Kootenay  to break through,  incidentally, too. it in pointed  'iiit that at the new locution vt+ry  little trouble would be encountered  other rather important matters to  get action on at this session of the  legislature.  Foremost of  these,  of course, is  the   Koobenay     flats   reclamation  proposition.    On this the estimates  should show a  grant  of sufficient  funds to finish up  the  engineering  side of the matter.    And it will be  up to Mr.   Keen,   too, to  see  that  the work   ie gone on with.    Last  year  we  had  a  considerable sum  appropriated for  road  work,  etc.,  but not more than 30  per  cent, of  it was expended for some reason or  other.    On   reclamation   work   no  such half-hearted effort will suffice,  particularly  this    year-   when   at  present     the     excessive    snowfall  would indicate  that  1918   will be  the ideal season   to  prosecute  this  work to the fullest  possible extent.  The school board will be looking  to Mr. Keen, too, for amendments  to the School Act that will facilitate  financing      educational       affairs,  especially in   the  direction  of collecting    school     taxes���������past    and  present alike���������and  relieving ��������� trustees  of the  burden of  borrowing  money for school purposes on their  personal guarantee to   the bank as  to   payment.���������or   failing    this   to  allow teachers  salaries  and   other  obligations go unpaid.  The question of a rural mun-  oapality for the greater portion of  Creston "Valley is another matter  Mr. Keen is genuinely in sympathy with. Just now those who  favor such a move find the undertaking hopeless due to the existing  Municipal Act requiring the consent of non-resident as well as  resident property owners���������and this  section more than abundantly  blessed with the former. Too,  only registered owners may vote,  and the getting to know who  these owners are and getting iu  touch with them with the requisite  petition i9 both a bit expensive as  well as laborious. A special act  removing those disabilities should  not he out of the question���������in war  times���������and the member for Kaslo  is like to find himself face to face  with a request to see what ho can  rlo in the matter.  And there is still tho legislative  committee of the board of trade to  he heard from.    Thojj^have in view  we!! throughout ivio  Creston, Jan. 2.  S. A.

Commencing with December  24th the importation of liquor into  Canada is forbidden, except of such  web goods as were ordered prior  to the day before Christmas and  even these cannot be shipped into  Canada after January 31st.  The transportation of liquor into  any province where prohibition is  effective will cease on April 1st,  and the goverrment has an investigation now under way to determine and equitable date on which  to order the manufacture of liquor  to cease.  Liquor is defined as anything  containing over twr and a half per  cent, of alcohol, and the new  regulations will remain in force  for twelve 'month's after the conclusion of peace.  Outside of a part of Quebec,  which is the only section of Canada, not already "dry," the new  legislation is received with equanimity, The exogenoies of war  havo for some time been expected  to provoke such action.
