Thf eansiMMj- o haad dowa Sundial THE MONTREAL WITNESS Rumor mentioned that W. R the American yellow -journalist, negotiating to purehaae the Witness but John the er, denies the story. It t-e i was great .pity to -see such n ftKjh elf ss journal as the Witness -pass into the hands of -such ar Hearst. -It would like putting a sinner in charge of a chinrch.- The Wit ness is the cleanest paper- ia; Canada. In fact it ,Is recbgniied a Chrtistian daily. It refuses certain- classes of advertising and does not- give prom- inence to crime in its columns. It is not paying large dividends it is true, for the people -who -criticize other newspapers for liquor adver- tisements and -publishing reports of murder cases, prize fights and the like fail to support the only newspaper in Canada which keeps such mat- ters "out of its --.'It is the old story those who boast the: need, morals in journalism, show little sympathy 'for the paper that adopts their ideas John .DougaJi, however, is. a -man who is no', influenced by: monetary considerataions. He stands by hi principles, whether he loses money o iiot. The Witness is a distinct credit to Canadian journsLHsm. Its opin- ions carry weight. Its editorials are probably the best written in- Canada and it would bring grief to many a heart, if such a fine type of newspa- _ per was to get into the hands of Hearst, the founder of yellowr journal- ism.

Toronto, "One optimist in any business is worth forty-five pes- simists moping around." Canada's railway mileage- increased 1300- miles this year. Here hi- Sou- thern Alberta we won't object if the increase next year is a thousand miles in our own territory. We can stand it.

The Christmas and Sunday- School entertainment given last ng in the barracks of the Si tion Army was from many stand- points a tremendous success. The hall was comfortably full with a very enthusiastic audience who fully appre- ciated an excellent programme the little ones had provided, consisting of various songs, recitations, duets drills, etc. The lantern drill by about a dozen little girls was extremely pretty am savored somewhat of the land of the Rising Sun. Each little child car ried a colored wand attached to the end of which wns a. lighted lantern Upon the electric lights being extin giiished the children marched to and fro interlacing and turning as in the dance of the Merry May Pole. Mrs. Slarke gave a most impressive reading displaying latent dramati ability; and the whole programme re- flected great praise upon jor Dawson who had the training o the rhjldrer. ir. hand.
