IN THE SOCIAL REALM
Christmas has come and gone bringing Its usual quota of fun, frolic and jollity to the citizens of I^ewiston and vicin.ty. The only ; feature to mar the holiday was the 'soft spell of weather which was for -oign to all accepted conceptions of an ideal Christmas. The crispy air, j the crunching snow and the merry, whirl of the gaily decked sleigh with the music of its laughter and bells ! would have be'en a better setting the day but what was substituted j did not seriously effect the Christ-j rnas spirit which distributed joy and, gladness throughout every house-j Jiold and warmed the hearts of the passing guests. Churches and church societies were active in their distribution of good cheer and small :r; r p, o?v,"r„rt; marked the events of holiday week.

Today the police were asked for per mission to hold a monster parade through the east side streets some day next week. It is said that if the parade is permitted 30,00.0 men, women and children will take part in the demonstration. The social ists who are at the head of the strike movement state they do not expect that the permission will be given. In case it is not, an appeal will be made for permission to hold a mon ster mass meeting at one of the parks on the east side. Rents in the tenement houses, it is said, have practically doubled within the past three years and have advanced 20 per cent within a year. To make the matter worse, the heads of thou sands of families are now out of work on account of the cutting down by various employers and fac tories. The tenants appear to be very much in earnest and if they stand together they can win a vic tory over the landlords. Owners of buildings are evicting the tenants who refuse to pay ns rapidly as pos sible and many dispossess notices were tacked on doors all over the district yesterday and more will be served today. The landlords say that under no circumstances will they make any reduction in the rents and several of them announce that they will close the tenements rather than reduce the rents. The committee that has the strike In hand has arranged to care for those who are evicted. It is planned that whenever a family is to be evicted to send them back into the house, the members of the familv being distributed among -the flats occupied by others who are in sym pathy with them.
