A communication was received  frjm the Vancouver board of trade  stating that that body had reconsidered the action taken by it recently  in reference to urging the provincial  government to complete the all-  Canadian' highway between Hope  and Princeton. The clerk was instructed to write to the Vancouver  board of trade.and to point out that  the completion of the highway from  Cascade to Rossland was  necessary.  The Athletic association submitted the financial statement of the  skating rink, which was read by the  .. clerk. The association also asked  for the rebate of one year's taxes.

The official had stated that he  thought it would be inadvisable to  erect gates at the street crossings,  as all train crews had been given in-  structfons to run through the city at  a speed not exceeding six miles per  hour.  Aid. Allen wished know whether  Joyce avenue was a registered thoroughfare or not. Investigation dis-  close'd the fact that it was not, and  on motion of Aid. Allen and Donaldson, a resolution was adopted to  the effect that the city take up with  the townsite company the matter of  making provisions for a sixty-foot  street at this point.

The Pathfinder has  suspended operations until the coke  situation improves so that more fur  naces can be operated at the local  smelter.  F. M. Sylvester, managing director of tbe Granby company, interviewed at Prince Rupert, - when on  his way to Anyox, said that the big  copper companies are keeping /the  price of copper within reason. They  could sell to the allied governments  at a higher figure than what is.being  charged, but do not feel disposed to  do so.

Eric Townsend wrote to  his parents in London a letter which  for its pure patriotism and literary  and human qualities deserves to be  given a permanent place in the  literature of this war. The letter  was printed in the London Daily  Mail and is reproduced below:  Septembers, 1916.  Dearest Mother and Father:  You are reading this letter because  I have gone under.  Of course I know you wili be terribly cut up, and that it will be a  long time before you get over it,  but get over it you must. You must  be imbued with the spirit of the  navy and the army to "carry on."  You will still have dear little Don-  aldf who is safe at any rate for some  while. If he should ever have to go  on active service, I somehow feel  that his invariable good luck will  brfng him through.  -You must console yourselves with  the thought that I am happy,  whereas if I had lived���������who knows?  Remember the saying attributed  to Solon, '-Call no man happy till  he is dead," Thanks to your self-  sacrificing love and devotion, I have  had a happy time all rny life. Death  will'have delivered me from experiencing unhappiness.  It. has always seemed to me a  very pitiful thing what little difference the disappearance of a man  makes loany institution/even though  he may have played an important  role. A moment's regret, a moment's pause for readjustment, and  another man steps forward to carry  on, and the machine clanks onward  with scarce a check. The death p'f a  leader of the nation is less even than  a seven days''-yonder. To a very  small number it is given to live in  history; their number is scarcely one  in ten millions. To the rest it tsonly  granted to live in their united  achievements. Bui for this war I  and all the others would have  passed into oblivion like the countless myriads before us. We should  have gone about our trilling business eating, drinking, sleeping,  helping, marrying, giving in marriage, and finally dying with no  more achieved than when we were  born, with the world no different  for our lives. Eveu the cattle in the  field fare no worse than this. They,  too, eat, drink, sleep, bring forth  young, and die, leaving the world  no different irom what they found it.  But we shall forever in the results  of our efforts.  We shall live as those who, by  their sacrifice, won the Great War.  Our spirits and our memories shall  endure in the proud position Britain  shall hold in the future. Tbe measure of life is not its span, but the  use made of it. I did not make  much use of my life before the war,  but I think I have done so now.  One sometimes hears people say  when a young man is killed, "Poor  fellow, cut off so early, without ever  having had a chance of knowing and  enjoying life." But for myself,  thanks to all that both of you have  done, I have crowded into twenty  years enougli' pleasure, sensations,  and experiences for an ordinary lifetime. Never brilliant; sometimes almost a failure in anything I undertook; my sympathies and my 'interests somehow or other���������why I can  not tell���������were so wide that there  was scarcely an amusement, an occupation, a feeling which I could  appreciate. And, as I have said, of  most of these I have tasted. I don't  suppose I ever met anybody who  was note my superior in knowledge  or achievement in one particular  subject; but ,there his knowledge  and his interests ended, whereas my  interests comprised nearly the whole  field of human affairs and activities.  And that is why it is no hardship  for me to leave the world so young.  Well, I have talked a lot of rot  which must have given you great  pain to read and which will not  bring you much comfort. 1 had intended to try and say words of comfort, but that scarcely being possible,  it has drifted into a sort of confession of faith.  To me has been given the easier  task; to you i3 given the more difficult���������that of living in sorrow. Be  of good courage that in the end you  may give a good account.  Kiss Donald for me.  Adieu, best of parents.���������Your  loving son, Emc.  Earnings at the Present lime  Are at the Rate of $66  i*  Per< Share  Not a iVIerry Christmas  All over the Christian world fa  thers and mothers and childreu are  wondering sadly whether they shall  ever again be able to utter with a  confident and happy heart the  Christmas greeting���������Merry Christmas! Those words will be heard in  many an American home this year,  but even there they will be spoken,  among the thinking elders of the  family, with a sense that only for  the very young can Christmas now  be merry. In England, the land  from which our Christmas greeting  came, those words will very likely  not be heard at all. In Francp the  phrase, Joyeux Noel, if it is uttered,  will be a conventional greeting, without spirit As for Belgium and Poland and Serbia and Roumania, is  it conceivable that any of the miserable people of those countries, where  all alike are wretched, should not  think of Christmas as the bitterest,  most tragic day in all the year?  In our own country perhaps the  most hopeful and heartening sign is  the fact that for so few persons can  Christmas be merry. Were we so  sunk in selfishness,so content in our  prosperity, so happy in our immunity, as to observe Christmas  with a thankful and a merry heart,  there would indeed be no health in  us. The measure of our Christianity this year is to receive its supreme test. Is our self-denial growing more rigorous with the increasing destitution of the world'/ Out  of our resources are we giving more  to the afiheted and spending less  upon ourselves than ever before1?  Each one of us mud make hit open  answer. Christmas this year should  be the day when a man communes vnlh  his roiiscknce.���������Youth's Companion.  Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smelting & Power company is earning at the rate of about $55 per  share. This is on a basis of 29 cent  copper. It is expected, therefore,  that Granby will increase its present quarterly dividend rate from 2  per cent to 24; per cent at its meeting in December, says a report from  Boston.  Anyox production at the present  time is a little less than 3,100,000  pounds per month, or at the rate of  37,000,000 pounds annually, -while  at Grand Forks the output of about  1,275,000 pounds per month is  equal to about 15,300,000 pounds  annually. The total output of the  company, therefore, is at the rate of  over 52,000,000 pounds of copper  per annum.  The cost of production at the  Hidden Creek property is about 9  cents per .pound, compared with 15  cents at the Boundary property.  Earnings at Hidden Creek, on 29  cent basis, are at .the rate of ������7,500,-  000 annually, and at Grand Forks  $2,500,000, making 'Grauby's earnings at the present time at the rate  of 810,000,000, or about $06 per  share on the 149,985 shares of outstanding capital stock.  President E. P. Earle stated at the  aanual meeting in November that  Granby had participated to a considerable extent in the 448,000,000-  pouud order for copper placed during September for the allies.  As this order was placed at around  20 cents per pound, due allowance  must be made, and as the annual  report of the sompany for the year  ended June 30, 1910, showed a net  surplus of over 83,800,000, which  is more tnan sufficient to take care  of the outstanding bonds, Granby in  in the fiscal year to end June 30,  1917, should show net earnings of  at least- .$7,500,0U0 or $50 per  share.

C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1916  The German peace proposals appear to have  been rejected with scorn in all parts of the  empire, as well as by all the_ other allied powers. It is inconceivable to believe that. they  were prompted by a sense of magnanimity on  the part of the Hun government, and the only  other inference that can be drawn from this  latest move of the kaiser is, that the central  powers are really much weaker at the present  time than is apparent to an outsider from  their recent operations in Roumania. This is  probably the true interpretation of the kaiser's  sudden professions of love for peace, and the  allied powers have acted wisely in declaring  their determination to continue the struggle  until the Huns sue for peace in a more humble manner.  President Wilson advises the people of the  United States t������ boycott food monopolists  and thus force clown from aloft the cost of  living. As if in reply'to this timely counsel  an operator in Chicago boldly announces that  he has seventy-two million eggs in cold storage and is going to exact war prices for the  them. We have a suspicion that there are  one or two men in Canada who' are fmitators  of the methods of this Chicago Joseph and  that our government has in mind some system of dealing with them that will be just  about as effective as Woodrow Wilson's brilliant idea.���������Victoria Times.  It should be unnecessary for us to remind  you that our advertising patrons have some  very useful and exceedingly handsome Christmas presents for sale.  In the provincial by-elections all the cabinet ministers should be returned without opposition. The electors have recently indicated in an emphatic manner what, they want,  and it is useless to put the province to the  further expense of holding the elections. If  M. A. Macdonald is opposed in Vancouver,  his opponent will emerge from the contest  with very few votes and small honors. ._.  The Sun, at $1.00 per year, gives its readers  three times more reading matter than any  other Boundary paper. This fact accounts  for the rapid increase in our 'circulation.  Besides being read by all the intelligent people of Grand Forks, The Sun goes to every  ranch home in the Kettle and North Fork  valleys. No other . Boundary paper can give  advertisers this guarantee.  The next excitemen. in this province will  be the civic elections. In Grand Forks, the  indications are at present that this will be a  very tame affair this year. Just now there  does not appear to be more candidates than  there are offices.  If we ever get martial law in this country,  the job to be done would be to lynch the  speculators in foodstuffs.  The price of all grades of paper keep' on  climbing merrily towards the clouds. There  is some reason why the fancy grades, requiring costly chemicals in their manufacture,  should advance in price, but why common  news print should follow in the upward trend  is inexplicable. There is as much pnlpwood  in the country as there ever was, and labor  is but little higher than it was before the war.  The only cause that caif be assigned for the  advance in price of this grade of paper seems  bo that all manufacturers have acquired a desire to come out of the war millionaires.  They should be handled, with bare hands by  the federal government.

They follo'wed him with wrapt faces,  and, when be had concluded, the  mother, leaning toward him, whispered hoarsely:  "Stranger, you Say all   this   hap  pened a long time ago?"  "Yes," he- said, "almost two  thousand years ago."  "And they nailed Him to that  thar tree when He hadn't done  nothing, to hurt 'em; ouly jest loved  'id?"  "Yes."  She leaned farther and placed her  hand impressively upon his knee  "Wal, stranger," she said, the tears  standing in her eyes, "let's hope hit  ain't so!"
