C, FRIDAY, APRIL 12, 1.938  $1.00-PER YEAR  City Council Considers   a  Large Number of New  Bylaws  M-iyor Acres and Aid Harkness,  McArdle, McCallum, McDonald and  Sehnitter were present at the regular  meeting of the city council on Monday evening.  A   letter from  J.  E Thompson,  M.P.P., thanked the council for en-  . '     dorsing  him   as   the  government's  ji^. delegate on the  delegation  which is  to visit Ottawa this summer for this  purpose of urgiug.before the federal  government the development of the  iron and steel industry in this prov--  ince, but owing to business engagements he would he compelled to  decline the appointment if it should  be offered to him.  A letter was also read from Pre  mier Oliver on the same subject.  Mr. Oliver stated that the government had already urged this matter  upon the federal authorities and that  the question of the appointment of  a delegate to represent the province  ' would be duly considered.-  A letter from W. 0. Miller, district-superintendent of the CP.R.,'  stated that his company would pay  the additional price charged the citv  for power on the amount of power it  used. The letter was ordered filed,  and the clerk was instructed to acknowledge the receipt of the same.  ��������� M. J. Quinlivan tendered his  resignation as an employee of the  city council, to take effect May 1.  The council accepted the same.  The Grand Forks volunteer fire  department extended an invitation  to the members of the council to at  tend the annual meeting of the department, to be held in the West  ward fire hall on Wednesday evening, April 10. The clerk was instructed to acknowledge the receipt  of the letter, with thanks.  The past month's accounts were  ordered to be paid.  The chairman of the board oj  works reported that the drain to the  skating rink slough had been cleaned  out, and the water was now running  .off nicely.  The chairman of the water and  light committee reported that an  electric switch had been installed  at the pumping station. He recommended that the hours and rates for  lawn sprinkling be the some as last  season, Tbe recommendation was  accepted.  died at the cemetery and  along   the  streets.  The mayor suggested that a new  flag should be purchased for the  city building. The matter was referred to the mayor to obtain prices  and to report to the council.  The mayor also repnrted that a  request had been made for. a' crosswalk from the high school.to the  English church and for a sidewalk  from the church to Stanley   Davis'.  Aid. Schnitter reported that the  party in the Ruckle addition who  was in arrears to the amount of  about $70 with his water rates had  refused to pay the bill, and that the  Ruckle Addition association had cut  off his water.- In future, he said, the  association had agreed to cut off the  water from }he premises of any person in that addition who was two  months in arrears with his rates.  Aid. McCallum was glad that the  consumers of water outside the city  limits had taken this action to collect the rates, and he moved that  the agreement be ratified and. that  the clerk be instructed to send out  monthly notices. The resolution  was adopted.  .. The mayor reported that Chief of  Police Savage had tendered his  resignation, and that" the police commissioners had accepted it. It was  tbe intention of the police sommis-  sioners, he said,to have the new chief  attend to police duties and to assist  with the work in other departments  of the city when required. The  chairman of the board of works  did not think that this plan would  prove to be much of a saving to. the  city, as most of the work in his own  department had heretofore been  done by persons who would otherwise have required assistance, from  the city.  The resolution adopted by the p'o  lice   coinrnissioners   respecting   the  duties of tbe new chief was endorsed  by the council. <       .  Aid. McCallum was granted leave  to introduce the Graud B"orks pond  bylaw. It was advanced to the  ihird reading stage.  Aid. McCallum was granted leave  to introduce the levy and collection  of road tax bylaw. This, also.passed  three readings, and was considered  in committee. The redrafting of this  bylaw was made necessary because  under the new provincial statutes  women as well as men have to pay  this tax. This is the price the ladies  have to pay for their votes.  Aid. McCallum was also granted  leave to introduce a weights and  measure bylaw. It passed its first  and second readings.  Olive Groves at Jerusalem  Have Been Cut Down  for Railway Fuel  THE WEATHER  The  following  is  the   minimum  i and maximum temperature for each  r���������, , J day   during  the   past   week, as re-  Ihe chairman^of tho   health  and j corded by the government thermora-  relief committee recommended   that|eter on E. F. Laws' ranch:  Hubert F. Broad, who is with  G'en. Allenby's army in Palestine,  has written the iollovving letter to a  friend in this city:  "I have not had time to write you  lately,   having   been   very   bu3y, as  usual; in fact,I have forgotten where  it was I wrote you.     We   have been  up to  now  pushing  ahead so fast  that we are never in the same  place  more than a few days. Of course you  will   have   heard   by   this time all  about the doings out.here.    We  are  holding a line just now until.we can  get roads built up���������a job that would  have driven Spraggett to drink. The  hard part about it in, you can do no  digging, and have lo build up roads  about   two   feet   high   with   rocks.  When it is finished it is quite a good  motor road, which we  must-have,  being so far ahead of  the   railroad.  The   whole   country   is  cut  up in  every direction by wadis   (gulches),  wiTh- dry   water courses   at the bottom and generally very steep sides,  so that every mile you advance   you  nave  to   capture a great number of  different hills. There are no trenches  dug, and the Turks just  roil  a few  huge rocks together and put   a   machine   gun   there, which   makes  it  very difficult to   knock    them   out.  While in the hills neither  side  can  get   the  artillery   into action on account "of transport, so  it  is   mostly  hand to hand fighting.    Of  course,  there is a good road from Jerusalem  up  and  also  along   the coast Jaffa  way, but nothing but goat  tracks in  the mountains between these roads.  "I didn't get into Jerusalem when  it was taken .(we,were  in   the  surrounding   party, and   were   well   in  advance of it), but I was there a few  days   later   looking  at   the   sights.  The Turk   has   not    damaged   anything, and all   the   holy  places are  intact   and   are   at   present under  guard  of  the   different allies.   The  civil population is pretty hard  up���������  very little food, and the Turks have  cut down nearly all the olive  groves  around the city for fuel for the  railway. As the natives depend on these  for a living, it fixes them for years,  as lots of the trees were   1000  years  old; in fact, very few of-the   present  natives can tell you when their trees  were planted.   They say they get a  profit of ������30 or S40 a tree from  mature   trees. They   make olive oil of  most of the fruit, and you see them  carrying   it    about    in   goat-skins.  the water runs clown the muntains  in rivers, which makes camping  very unpleasant. The villages are  too lousy to live in, as all the goats  and donkeys live in tho same house  with the natives, who are chiefly  Arabs, of course, and a most diseased looking crowd, suffering from  every complaint under the sun.  "We expect hot weather in  March, when I think we shall try to  finish off the Turk once and for all.  We had a little scrap with him the  other day���������rcaptured 17 guns and  64 prisoners. I s^nt you, I think,  views of the Holy City. A most in  teresting spot. I spent three days  looking over it, and saw most of the  places ot interest. We have closed  most of the churches,but the Church  of the Holy Sepulchre is open. The  view from the Mount of Olives is  well worth the trip. Tojthe northeast  you you can see the Dead sea and  the Jordan running into it. It looks  to be about tto miles away, but it  is twenty, with very high mountains behind. Bethelhem, which is  only five miles away, can be.plainly  seen, and you overlook the whole  ciiy of Jeiusalem. Looking over the  valley of Jehosa"phat, the Garden of  Gethsemane lies between the Mount  and the city; but it ts no use to attempt to describe it, so I shall quit.  "The shops are just opening in  the city, although they have not  got anything to sell The Turks  flooded the place with their pound  notes, which are worth 2 . 6 today,  so they naturally nil went broke.  'Tlindenburg had   his   headquarters on the Mount of Olives,   so   he  must   be   rather   feci   up   to see us  there.    I met a couple of Vancouver  men in the city  joining the R.F.C.  1 hope we shall be able to get   back  to Grand Forks this year. There are  so   many reports   about   that one  never   knows   what   may    happen.  There is a chance that Geoffrey may  get sent back   from   India   and   get  leave, he having been laid up so long  a   time.    I hope  every one is going  strong  in   the district,   although  I  suppose you are   beginning  to  feel  the effects of the warthesameas the  people in England.   I must eud this  letter, as I have to go and Kboot in a  competition  with   the  Australians,  who are with us just now."  Annual Meeting Largely)  Attended--A Smoker  and Speeches  'vi ,,,i ~,0ellu������ ������* the Grand  ihe annual me  Forks  Volunteer   Fire  Department  was held in the West ward fire hall  on   Wednesday    evening.     Fifteen  members of the department and'the  members  of  the   city   council were  present.    The election.of officers re-  ulted as follows:  Chief, Ben Norris; assistant chief,  F. J. Miller; captain, John A. Hut-  ton; secretary, Don Manly; treasurer, Charles Haverty.  After the business session felicitous speches were made by the  members of the city council, and retiring Chief Savage and the chief-  elect distinguised themselves in addresses reviewing the work of the  department. The meeting wound  up with a smoker and the serving  of refreshments.  Monday, April 22, be designated as j  the annual spring cleaning up day, :  and that notices to this effect be  printed in the local papers. The  recommendation was accepted. Tin  cans, etc., but not ashes or sawdust,  if put in boxes and placed at convenient places, will be hauled away  free during the first few days of the  week beginning with April 22.  Afterwards a fee will be charged for  this work.  Max. Min. Prices have gone up about 400 per  .'31 . cent since the war started.

Start Daylight  : Saving Sunday  Ottawa, April 11.���������The daylight  saving bill, which was put through  the committee.stage and given third  reading in the senate today, will in  all probability come into effect at 2  o'elock on Sunday morning, April  14. A semi official intimation to this  effect was given by Senator Robertson, minister without portfolio, when  the bill was being considered.  ��������� Senator Robertson gave as the reason for the bill becoming effective  on Sunday morning instead of Sunday at midnight, the circumstance  that fewer trains run on Sundays.  He said that less inconvenience  would be caused by advancing the  clocks 60 minutes at that hour in ihe  morning, because late trains would  have arrived at their destinations  and morning trains wonld be made  up at a later hour.  Senator Roberison'.s idea received  the support of Senator George Bradbury, who expressed the view that  the change could be made with less  inconvenience at the hour suggested  by the minister.  Arthur Nichols, of this city, anil  Miss E. Walker, of Alberta, were  married here last Wednesday.  Yesterday's casualty list of American troops was 124. One. of these  was killed in action; 2 died of  wounds; GO severely wounded; .'30  slightly wounded, and 4 missing.  Twenty-two more Americans were  killed in action, General Pershing  reported lastnijjht to the war office.  The new list includes 110 casualties,  OS being slightly wounded.

This conclusion has been arrived at after watching  the  arrival   of packages and kegs for two or  ithree weeks''prior-'to- the enforcement of the  bone-dry law. / It was a golden  harvest  time,  i for������the poor express and railway  companies,  ' a 1 ways more or less hard pressed Tor ready  cash.' '..'   ... ', ' .  r.       .,,".:    ���������  Delegations  from  many   sections   of   the  country are beseeching  the  federal government for  grants  and  assistance to develop  various resources and enterprises.   It seems to  us that these people have chosen an  inopportune time for their importunities, and that the  course  they  have adopted  lacks both judgment and patriotism.-   In the first place, every  dollar the government can get hold of is  required   to   push  the war to a  successful conclusion; and, secondly, the man power  of the  country is insufficient to parcel it out to new  undertakings.    The news from the front indicates that every man who is  physically  fit ris  needed in the front lines at present, and those  who are not fit for the service are needed  to  ���������produce food for the armies and for the civilian population.    These  ar������  the only occupations that count today.    Men who are not en-  i>\a<red in essential work, should be pressed iuto  the service of either one of them.    The development of new resources can wait  until the  war is won.   Who would benefit if we were to  develop  our country and lose our liberty? .It  is not democracy alone that hangs in the balance in this struggle.    It  is civilization itself.  We have been told that one good man; who  did not wish to-have his motives misconstrued,  sent for $25 worth of whisky to cure an aching tooth. There appears' to -have been an  epidemic of toothache in the city,: lately. In  some families more than one member was  afflicted. Some of the patients, judging by  the size of their packages, must have had  several aching teeth in their heads. But the  strangest part of "the malady appears to have  been, that it attacked false teeth as well as  real ones. ���������.'���������'.'

We are not hypocritical  enough for that. But we have discovered that  war-time thrift is a pretty good ^toothache  medicine.  Some sarcastic person might hint   that the  newspaper business is not an essential occupation,   and  that  we  ought  to set a good example.    We are fully aware of the fact  that  the world could  g^t along  with  a few less  newspapers at present, and were we a couple  of years younger we would not be here.   But  there are  lots  of strong, able-bodied   newspaper men who could serve their country better  in  the  trenches  or  on the farm than by  getting out daily or weekly newspapers.   And  there are other professions from  which  good  soldiers and farmers could be culled.'-'.  When onr brave soldiers are lying wounded  on France battlefields, or giving their lives  for their king and country, the least the people  at home can do to show that they, prize the  sacrifices they are making, is to refrain from  indulging in such amusements as dancing, etc.  We hope that this hint  will be sufficient.  With the whole nation practising self-'  denial, give more than your breath to the national purpose.  Front the Western Front  The poor, down-trodden unmarried man  appears to be in need of a champion, and as  The Sun has gained all its fame by taking the  part of tee under dog we should like to say a  few words in his favor. Recently we have run  across quite a number of- advertisements for  help with the clause, "Married men preferred/'  As the single man is given the preference in  the trenches, perhaps it is only fair that the  married should have the first choice at home,  but still it looks like discrimination in both  cases. The unmarried man is really not as  bad as he has been painted. Some of his class  are quite domesticated, and we have known  a few who could read and write and appeared  to be quite intelligent.

Yesterday's fighting on the. western front,-  according to the press dispatches, was the  fiercest yet recorded this spring. Swinging  his heaviest legions and mightiest guns far to  the north of thePiccrdy battlefield, Field.Marshal von Hindenburg is now driving home attack after attack against the British lines between Arras and Ypres. Charging across the  level country behind a tempest of high explosives and gas shells, the Germans have  succeeded by terrific fighting in penetrating  the British defenses over a front of nearly 30  miles to a depth of abous six miles just to the  south of Ypres, The loss of Armentieres is  admitted by the British, but this was expected  from the trend of events in that sector during  the last few days. The enemy had driven in  on both sides of the town, and holding out  longer by the British would have imperiled the  whole line. So far as known the withdrawal  of the British from Armentieees was orderly  and was only for the purpose of straightening  the line in the region, where the German pressure is the heaviest. The British have stood  firm at vital points along the line. Wytzchaete  is still held by Field Marshal Haig's men, who  >4..������..������. .���������������������..���������..������������������������������������. .aiiii.MMi.ieni.iDo o.. o..o..*..e..*..0..t..������..a  Ouch ! ? ! ? ! ! This kind of rough  talk will be heard less here in town if  people troubled with corns will follow  the simple advice of this Cincinnati  authority, who claims that a few drops  of a drug called freezone when applied  to a-tender, aching corn stops soreness  at once, and. soon the corn, dries up  and lifts right out without pain.  . He s'ays freezone is an ether compound which dries immediately and  never inflames or even irritates the  surrounding tissue or skin. A quarter  of an ounce of freezone will cost very  little at any drug store, but is sufficient to remove every hard or soft  corn or callus from one's feet.

Macoun, Ihe Dominion   horlicultur  ist?   briefly   explains   all this in a  hundred page bulletin   recently   is  sued by the department  of agricul  ture, Ottawa, in which is also given  complete   and     comprehensive   information a������ to ' the  cultivation   of  the potato.    Mr. Macoun goes  fully  into    his   subject, dealing with, the  preparation   of   the   soil,    the   varieties of seedling,   of   the   manner  and method of planting"  of  protec  tion   against   insect   pests and disease?, of   the   time   to plant, of the  districts best suited to the .different  varieties, of the care that should   be  taken during growth, and of garner  ing, storing and shipping.    Particulars are also given of the   results  of  experiments and tests made   at   the  experimental   farms   and    stations  throughout the Dominiofi. In short,  pretty well   everything in the shape  of information that fs of   value   to  potato growers, with many exact and  interesting   illustrations,   is   to   be  found   in   this   bulletin that can be  had free on addressing the  publications brauch, department of agriculture, Otsawa.  oJWaking a Start  With Bee Keeping  F. W. L. Slfidcn,  Dominion   apiar  ist, says:  The spring is the best time to begin keeping bees; the outlay is .small  and they do not require daily feeding  like other animals, which ties one to  the place. Bounded by no fences  they collect a valuable food which  otherwise goes to waste,  At the time of writing the price of  honey is at least 50 pe.t cent higher  than a year ago and there is an urgent  call for increased pioduction. This  may be met by (I) the adoption of  modern apiary equipment and practice  by beekeepers not yet employing  these, (2) the production of extracted  honoy in the place of comb honey, the  former now being much more profita  ble. (3) good spring management such  as keeping colonies protected until  summer, avoiding starvation and  keeping all colonies raising bees at  full capacity by early replacing unsatisfactory queens and uniting queen-  less colonies to weak ones, (4) ordering supplies early, especially sufficient  Utmost Support  by U.

K38 * "������" ol1 ccl  ^ESPITE war conditions, we have not as yet felt the pinch  of hunger in Canada. Consequently, it is difficult for us  to realize the grave need for increased food production in  order that others may be fed. At no time is Europe self-supporting  in the matter of food. After nearly four years of war, our Allies  are living from hand to mouth, depending entirely on the safe  arrival of food ships from across the Atlantic.  Because of our comparative nearness to our Allies, and because  of our wide, fertile areas, this continent must continue to feed  Europe. If we fail, hundreds of thousands of people may starve  and our armies be denied a conclusive victory.  A bumper crop, a record harvest and increased meat production" in Canada  will be worth the winning of many battles to the Empire and our Allies at  this critical period.  Increased Production Imperative  Canada must raise for export at least 250,000,000 bushels of wheat more in  1918 than in 1917, to enable the Allies to maintain even their present  restricted rations.  They shall NOT starve !   make  that your slogan.  Plans have been formulated which,  on the authority of The Director of  Agricultural Labor, positively ensure   that   labor   will   be   provided  when needed, to harvest the maximum crop. Authorities agree that  the world-wide shortage of food will  continue for years after the war.  The farmer is assured a ready and  profitable market for all the grain  and meat that he can produce.  The Empire depends on the Canadian Farmer to "carry on."
