Treasury of Baud Eririched by  Christ  mas Eve Entertainment. '  Not in years has there been such a  crowd in town as that ���assembled here  Monday evening, having been attracted/ hither by the concert and  dance hi aid of the band fund. Every  town-.'and hamlet in tlie district was  represented, the crowd from Sandon,  Three Forks and Silverton being'sui-  prising-  Change of Address.  Exchanges and all people having  occasion to write to this paper will in  tiie future expedite matters by addressing all mail  to New Denver, B.  c.y  ��� ������ ���-, '���������.; ���  The Date Fixed  Everyone 'came determined  to have a-good time, and they; had at  too, as the coffers of the hostelri.es; can  ,' vouchsafe. Nor was it from/the towns  alone -that the visitors came^ 'for  every, inine within a radius of 15  'miles sent its contingent.  The dual  entertainment  was held  -in the new hah/S^annon block, which  , was artistically decorated for the occasion    with "../evergreens,  drapes, and Chinese lanterns  sented     a     pleasing     appear  Though somewhat late in comhienc-'  ing, the concert part ofthe festivities  was bright and cheery, and the performers did justice to their several  selections.    D. B. Bogle acted  as the  chairman, and in a brief manner welcomed  the  visitors to New Denver  and wished them a Merry,Christmas.  The programme then rah: Chorus, by  part; of the -: choir; instrumental, ,'.,Wi [  Fraseryof Rpseberry^ cpmicsong, in  costuniefCKLr. Bolander, who  had to  respond to ah encore; duet, W.

Smitheringale, who  responded to an encore; comic song  and   an   encore   by Mr. Lancaster,,  which stormed the house; instrumental, Messrs. Brindle, cornet; Hill, violin; and Squires, organ.  1   It did not take long after the conclusion of the concert to get the dance  in operation, and once started it was  kent going until the proverbial wee  sma'   hours   of morn.     Everybody  stopped for the fun and everybody en  joyed it.    From first to last the interest was well sustained, and the general verdict was that it was the best  affair of lthe kind ever held in the  Slocan.    The floor was in the pink of  condition, and the music supplied by  Tom Trenary's orchestra was "away  up."   The midnight supper was provided   on  the   ground floor by Mr.  Shannon, who demonstrated most satisfactorily his abilitv as a caterer.  Tiie receipts of the entertainment  amounted to upwards of $70, of which,  after deducting expenses, ��30 was  ���..turned over, to the treasurer of the  band fund. This, with the amount  already on hand, is sufficient to procure the necessary instruments. It  will not be long now ere the welkin  will ring and ring again with the  s und ofthe music divine as produced  bv the local bandsmen. To a large  extent the success of the affair was  due to the indefatigable efforts of  Mendames Hoyt and Gill, who worked early and late for the furtherance  of the good cause.

T- Gordon, who has been handling  ciie Alpha output under Gerielle's contract, came up on Monday eve from  Silverton. He has hauled so far about  6(J0 sacks, averaging about 135 lbs.  each. Five tons are hauled at a load  with a single team and two trips a  day can bo made. Gordon will take  'the team to the Idaho road this week,  until the Alpha gets a supply, ahead.  The ore at Silverton will go to Omaha  in a clay or two.  The appended telegram was sent to  this paper from Vancouver last Thur$  day, and contains agreeable news to  the mine owners'of the Slocan:-���.  Instructions have just been received by the C.P.R.officials to take over  the Nakusp., & Slocan Railway at  once. This practically ensures the  operation of the road this winter, and  also that communication will be kept  up with Revelstoke. The sleighroad  from the Wigwam, the present terminus of the Arrow lake branch, is now  being vigorously pushed, and will be  in readiness for,' traffic by Christmas.  It.is expected thatV the steamers will  be able to run through to the Wigwam"  for a month to come.  An English Joke.  Entertainment'.at Nakusp.  On Friday night las:), the Union  Sabbath School of Nakusp held a very j ciogged^p Mi^  successful entertainment in the Mended up Miss  schoolhouse. It took the form of a ��� ' ��� -- J'  Christmas tree and was backed up by  a programme of exceptional merit,  contributed principally by the children. The school was tastefully decorated, and the presents on the tree  were numerous and good. A feature  of the evening was the presentation  to Miss E.��� B. Caldwell, public school  teacher, of a gold ...bracelet and silver  jewel case. C. E. Smitheringale acted as chairman, while Rev. Mr. Gae-  bcl posed as the orator of the occasion.  Following is an English joke and  taken from the Westminster Gazette:  -^-Here is a literal copy of a cobbler's  bill" as. delivered, to a Devonshire  squire:  Squire  II.

At that time  the pay streak was only two inches  wide. An incline shaft was sunk and  at a depth of 10 feet the.vein widened  to a foot, and continued to spread out,  until at a depth of 90 feet there are  2k feet of solid ore, with about as  many feet more of carbonates and  broken ore. The.ore averages about  200 ounces in silver and 73 per cent,  lead to the ton. A shipment of 125  tons is being made to the smelter at  Great Falls.

A circular issued some two months  ago by the Commissioner of Lands  and Works, stating that all arrears  on Government lots in New Denver  had to be paid by the 31st of December, caused much uneasiness amongst  those interested. We have had considerable correspondence in reference  to the matter, and a few days ago we  received a letter from Premier Davie  in which he stated that the Government had determined to make all arrears on Government property payable in five annual installments .'with  interest at five per cent, per annum.  The first payment, which will be 20  per cent, of the airibunt, will be due  on the 31st of December, 1895. It is  presumed that these liberal terms  will meet with the approval of all  concerned.   .  ronage warrants it. We- will endeavor to give all our readers the Worth  of their money, especially [.those who  pay in advance. We will not try to  reform the labor question, or change  the laws of th�� universe. We will  not take part in any local factions.  We do not think that New Denver is  the hub ofthe earth, but if there is  any chance we will try to make it so.  We have faith in the ultimate greatness of the Slocan, and intend to stay  with it and New Denver until Hades  thaws out. It froze up just before we  left Nakusp, if you remember, gentle  reader. It is too near Christmas to  make 'many promises, but if you like  our style show your appreciation by  sending us two hundred cents in currency for a year's subscription. Don't  send cheques, as we do not expect to  have time to get them cashed.  Sprained: Roth. Wrists.  The big ball on Christmas eye was  marred to a certain extent by an unfortunate accident which befel J. H.  Werely. Noticing a friend in the  crowd' at the head of the stairs, he  reached over to shake hands with  him, but missed his footing and fell  to the bottom of the passageway.  When picked up he complained of  pains in his arms and body. Dr.  Brurer, of Three Forks, happened to  be in the hall, and he at once attended Mr. Werely. Both wrists were  sprained, particularly the right,  while bruises were indiscriminately  scattered over the patient's body.  IDHJISTT'IST,  KASLO,  B.C.  HAPPY NEW YEAR.  WANTED-A BANK,  We want a bank in the Slocan and  we want it bad and immediately.  We do not know of any district in the  world with half the riches that is not  strongly represented by the banking  profession. The two banks at Nelson  have been requested time and again  to get in and do business with us, but  have Hot done so, and we advise the  people. to look elsewhere. A branch  of the Imperial, or some other of the  leading banks of the Dominion, could  be induced to locate here by proper  representation. All that is necessary  is to have a petition signed guaranteeing the business of the mine owners and merchantile men of the Slocan. Such a snap would not be overlooked by almost any financial institution outside of the ones already in  the Kootenay.  HAIL! NEW DENVER.  We are here.    We arrived in New  Denver last Friday   with   material  to print a morning  'paper,!  IV  enough  when it becomes necessary. Our  plant stood tlie journey well, and bore  the .separation with remarkable fortitude. The only thing that suffered  was our old stove. It was a total  wreck and died of its injuries.  We will  increase  the size ot this  journal shortly   and   will   continue  Before another issue the old year  will have passed away and been deposited in Father Time's boneyard.  The new year will be on deck and we  trust that it will be one of happiness  and prosperity to at least a million of  our readers; It being customary to  form resolutions and turn over new  leaves at this period, we have decided to reform and do as follows in 1895:  ''���'���"*''��� "* '������''...,.'
