B o rne on the winds from the mys- IHc East, written in the lengthening Ihours of the revived day, faint and f a r .and yet as clear as the voice of th e muezzin on the minaret calling th e faithful to prayer, thrilling, (Quickening, uplifting and consoling, jjComCs the soul-heard, the heart-felt, -the faith-known cry: “It is the <3hristmastide! ’’ Men hear, turn, •wait and thrill to the cry that was heard centuries ago, when as the Old, Old Story, goes, the shepherds da the field at night, watching their ilocks, looked amazed upon the glori­ ous celestial drama that was enacted \by radiant beings behind the veils, ■when the .heavens opened, and space flo w e d with light, and rejoicing ■voices proclaimed : “Glory to God in th e highest, and on earth peace Among men in whom He is well pleased! ” Christmastide ! The Star in the E a s t stood over the lowly place ■wiere Christ, the Prince of Peace, th e incarnation of loVe, mercy and charity, was horn. The W ise Men cam e and worshiped him. The lowly surroundings were glorified. The celestial voices, hymning the arrival rOt the Divine Man, were echoed by the voices of the humans who looked ■upon the wonders of the great night, only dimly seeing their meaning, but ■thrilling -with the assurance that ^•^^Semething gregf aoS florioug fey the iitim a h fam iiy had taken plaCe, bnly vaguely understanding the stupend­ ous event, hut feeling assured that lo r mankind it m eant new things, n e w beliefs, new motives, new joys, » e w life, new thoughts, new desires. »ew ideals, new laws and happiness. I t was the tide, the time, of Christ, And the divine command was: “R e­ joice ! Be exceedingly glad! ’’ Ever «ince that wondrous night, regularly AS the year wanes and then dawns, AS the days draw more light from the sun, men in all lands turn their faces to the East, peer with eyes of faith and listen with ears of trust, And see the great drama enacted anew. Today as then the heavens open. Today as then the Star glows, Celestial voices are hear.d to liefaid com ing of the King. The E a s t bails td to the North, to the Soiitit,' and from m quarters faith answers, and tke kingdoms Of th e wo. id make obeisance, and Jesus th e Christ sways from pole to pole. Christmastide ! Joy, peace, good- -wUl, trust, faith, hope, love, mercy, cliarity, these be the fruits of the fiappy season, these be the messages o f the wondrous night in Bethlehem! Through the centuries tll&y conie down to us. Yoariy they bring the Merry Christmas, and warm the hearts of men to love their fellows, Sliid open their hands to the poor, th e weak, the ill, the needy and the downtrodden. The Christmastide Starts the feet in ways of charity, the tiands in \ways of uplifting, the heart in ways of loving. It makes merry th e giver and the receiver alike, ^ives all men better and clearer views, kindlier feelings, juster ^tahd- ards and loftier ideals. The ‘‘Merry Christmas! ” spirit warms humanity With the thrill of divinity. Christmastide ! Hail it with joy. H y m n it in the temple. Chant it in the social gathering. W elcome it in the reunited family. Savor it with Incense. Live it with the free gift to the poor and the needy. Illumine it ■with high thought. Sanctify it with gratitude. Realize it to the young and the aged with loving remem­ brances. Symbolize it with greens and blooms and music. Then never for you shall the East fail 'to glow w ith the celestial light, to sound w ith the celestial voices, to overflow w ith the divine music which the Old Did Story records for the first glad Christmastide. Then always for you *hall the heavens open, and the angels shall come and go. and the Btar in the East shall guide, and ever you shall carry with you the real Christmastide, and grow into closer and closer likeness and oneness with H im who never had a thought for H im self, but gave His all for others. ■'—^H. A. Van Fredenberg in The New 3'ork Parmer. THE BUSINESS SITUATION. Henry Clews, the New York bank­ er, interprets stock market conditions and the business situation in general at this time in his weekly letter. Ex­ tracts therefrom are made as follows ■ It has been a week of unexpectedly severe liaiiidation on the Stock Ex­ change, due chiefly to three causes—■ the unfavorable Supreme Court de­ cision regarding the U n ion -S o u th e r n Pacific merger, the sensational inves­ tigations of the Pujo Committee at W ashington and the unusual strain upon the money market. When the decision ordering the partial dissolution of the Harrima.i merger became more thoroughly ap­ preciated it served to unsettle confi­ dence more widely, because the ques­ tion has now been raised how far will this decision apply to other railroad and industrial corporations where the object or effect of such mergers was to suppress competition. So far the apprehension concerning this decision may have been exaggerated. Never­ theless it has been a considerable fa c ­ tor in speculative operations; and un­ til some dissolution plan is announced this uncertainty must be expected more or less to continue. Concerning the investigation by the Pujo Com­ mittee, this body has so far developed nothing new of particular importance. It has, however, served to iJeep alive unreasoning prejudice against W^all Street; hence unsettling to general confidence, as it is evidently an attack upon many important American finan­ cial institutions. So far as the “ money trust ’’ is concerned, there maw be an undesirable concentration of credit in a few cases, and it is possible that in isolated' instances this power has been misused, but there is no such thing in the United States as a monopoly of credit. Probably there have been some abuses in banking power, due very largely to our defective banking laws, and if the investigation is conducted on lines for reforming these deficien­ cies this work may result advantage­ ously instead of being a detriment. W hile the recent weakness of the market has been chiefly due to local happenings, the world’s money situa­ tion, however, has played an impor­ tant part in being responsible for much -)f the decline in securities. Throughout the world there has been a steady tightening of money, of which significant evidence is found in the high and advancing bank rates abroad. This is because of world-wide developments and activity, Outside of Wall Street general con­ dition!? appear satisfactory. November Clearings at all cities In the United States showed an increase of 9,6 per cent, while for the eleven months th e y ' show an increase of 9.2 per cent Railroad earnings for the fourth week of November showed a gain of about 12 per cent over last year, chiefly no doubt as the result of a good harvest As the close of the year approaches, however, there are occasional sign.s of lessening activity. The demand for steel has abated somewhat, and in •the textile industi’ies there is less urg­ ency of demand. Tariff uncertainties having their effect, and these are likely to remain until the action of Congress can be more clearly fore­ seen, The decline in the stock mark­ et has also served to moderate the optimistic tone business circles, so that the close of the year finds our business men in a soberer and less optimistic state of mind. honest character; a fine mind; a strong body— these, were W hitelaw Reid’s equipment and they carried him far. If there is anything that will stim ­ ulate any young American who is seeing things the wrong way, it must be the plain facts of such a life as W hitelaw Reid’s. The simple yet not easy program of success that it gives bespeaks high hope still for the earnest, the honest, the industri­ ous wherever they may be. One could wish nothing better for the na­ tion than that its highest places may con tin u e to find su c h m e n as W h lto. law Reid to fill them. A S S ISTA N T DI.STRICT A T - ‘ TORNEY^. Attorney \Wilton Bennet, of this city, is a candidate for Assistant Dis­ trict Attorney of Orange county in which candidacy he has the support of many friends in this city and else­ where in the county. The appoint­ ment is particularly important in that the Assistant District Attorney Is regarded as his party’s logical candi­ date for District Attorney when his chief’s incumbency ends. Attorney Jonathan D. Wilson, of Newburgh, recently elected District Attorney and who assumes office Jan. 1st, it has been stated, will leave the ap­ pointment largely in the hands of the Republican County Committee. Mr, Bennet would seem to have a favorable chance to land the ap­ pointment although there is a Mid­ dletown candidate and perhaps oth­ ers. Mr. Bennet’s many friends in this city, needless to say, are with him in his effort and hope he will land the appointment.

Pond Eddy. Dec. 17. — Mr. John m p b ell and Miss Henrietta Sy- inds were united in marriage at o f the bride’s brother the home o f th e bride’s Arthur Symonds, Saturdi THE EDGEWATER BxlTTDE. The fierceness of that battle be­ tween Italian and Polish strikers and a handful of Erie detectives at Edge- water Wednesday was mutely tes­ tified to by the two Port Jervis men who participated and were on tha streets next morning with bandaged heads, The Eriq 'didn’t reckon with the people it had to deal with when it sent a few men to cope with hund­ reds of armed foreigners. The m is­ take was a costly one for the road e> detective force. These men have enough risks in their daily activities without being sent into a trap of this kind and it may be hoped the lesson learned will last the Erie for all -------- ---------- WHITELAW REID. That scarcely any of the really big men of this nation come from any but humble circumstances is again empha^Zed in obituaries of W h ite- law Reid in the papers Monday. His life is a typical chapter o f America at its best. Born of rugged Scotch parentage of strong religious con­ victions, his ancestry had bodies healthy enough to make them piO' neers, penetrating to the then western country and helping to found a town. He was reared in an atmosphere that might well be wished for any youth of today. His principal teacher as a boy was the Rev. Hugh McMillan, a Scottish Covenanter, “who to the vigor and conscientiousness of his race added an exceptional degree culture as a classical scholar and of teaching ability as an instructor,” Needless to say under his care young Reid was well taught and disciplined. The rest is in natural order— An SxVEETY FIRuST, The Interstate Commerce Commis­ sion in its 26th annual report sub­ mitted to Congress Monday urged “safety first’’ as the paramount rule of train operation. Bringing fast trains in on time to the ignoring of conditions of safe operation, the Commission points out should be discontinued. Em p loyes are respon­ sible for many wrecks the report says but to hold them wholly re­ sponsible is a superficial view and contains no promise of effective rem­ edy. The Increase in traffic, crowding tracks and terminals, has greatly in­ creased the responsibilities of rail­ road employee while methods of dis- piplipe and regulations calculated to insure safety have remained practi­ cally unchanged. The report continues: “To pre­ v ent railroad collisions adequate Pleasures must be taken, first, to re­ duce the chances of human error to a minimum and second to neutralize the effects of such error when it oc­ curs. The recommendations pre­ viously made by the Commission for legislation requiring the standardiza­ tion of operating rules and the use of the block system were designed to reduce the probability of mistakes by employes, and those recommenda­ tions are once m ore presented for consideration of th e Congress. Uni­ formity and consistency in operating rules are necessary to secure safety, and it is not probable that a satis­ factory code which will meet the de­ mands of modern operating condi­ tions can be secured without appro­ priate action by the Federal Govern- Few railroad men will dispute the soundness of the Commission’s sug­ gestions. Safe equipment, sane schedules and wise operating rules should go a long way toward mak- | ing railroading a safe occupation and reduce to a minimum the danger to human life. -- THE LIBRARY. The last quarterly bulletin publish­ ed in the interest of the libraries of the state by the University of the State of New York contains the following paragraph concerning the Port Jervis Library ; Poi*t .Tel'vis. For a city of its size the resources and work of the Port Jervis Free Library have reached no­ table proportions. To equal the extent and value of its stock of books in this state, one must go to a city of at least twice the size of Port Jervi.s while its circulation exceeds that of twenty other cities having a greater population. Its report shows a collec­ tion of 19,407 volumes and a circula­ tion of 45,959. Its early reputation for efficient service Is being well main­ tained under its present administra- A city with such a circulation of such books as are on the library shelv'es is not without much to recom ­ mend it. The number of children who read the libarary books is worthy of note, A boy or girl who likes to read finds it a treasure house. The influ­ ence of Such an institution can not but be for the advance of the city along every line and its continued success will be determined by its con­ tinued use It offers opportunities to every Individual in the city that should not be overlooked. ----------------- -t-f ---------------- - •other, Mr. by the Rev.
