B.  C.'S WAR  SERVICE RECORD  At the adjourned meeting of tbe  city council on Tuesday evening,  Mrs. Brau, who bas a healthy bus-  band able to work, applied to the  city for the * maintenance of her  children. The case was referred to  the health and relief committee for  . investigation.7  Tbe clerk was instructed to acknowledge the receipt of the letter  bearing on the Doukhobor agitation  from Hon. Martin Burrell, and to  point out to him that the matter  was referred to him as the repre������  sentative for this district and not as  secretary of state, and asking him  to give it his attention.  The council decided to place  tbe  arrear accounts for street  sprinkling  in tbe hands of J. H. llyley for col-  * lection.  In the matter of the debentures  maturing this year, the clerk was  instructed to write to F. A. McDiar-  mid, solicitor for the Union of. British Columbia Municipalities, getting  his advice as to consolidating the  debentures maturing in 1919 and  1920 and issuing new debentures  covering the same.  A discussion on   the question  of  holding a tax sale took up the greater partof tbe time of   the   evening.  Tax sales in future, it  appears, will  be expensive both to the city and to  ���������  property owners wbo may  want  to  redeem their   property.    The   1919  amendments to  the   Municipal  Act  make compulsory a tax sale   during  .the   month   of   September in each  year.    It also provides that in addition to all delinquent  taxes, arrears  :of.  taxes,   interest,   current   taxes,  .expenses, etc., there shall be charged  against each parcel  the  sum  of  $5  for   expenses   of   the  land registry  office, the whole of which forms the  amount necessary  for   redemption.  In view of the fact  that  the  tax  rate   is  pretty   high   at the present  time, and with a   view   to  escaping  the costs in connection   with  a  tax  sale both by the city and  the owners, the council discussed the advisability of adopting a scheme   which  would permit of the  city accepting  from owners whose   taxes have   become   delinquent,     deeds   for   the  lauds, which deeds will be held  in  trust by the city and not  registered  until twelve months  after   September 3, 1919, tbe original  owners   to  have   the   opportunity during tnat  period of redeeming any   or   all   of  the parcels by paying up the   delinquent   taxes   with    interest.    This  would give the owners much greater  privileges   in    redeeming than ,they  would enjoy under tax sale proceedings and would, at tbe  same   time,  save them the additional  costs and  charges   incidental  to a tax sale as  outlined above.  The clerk was instructed to draft  circular letter embodying the above  points and to submit it to the coun-  From British Columbia and the  Yukon there volunteered in the  Great War 43,652 men, and 564]  were raised under the military service act.

There were also 16,300 men liable  only to non-combatant service,either  as conscientious objectors or by reason of the war times election act.

Tbe largest deal ever made in the  history of beekeeping in queensand*  pouud packages of bees, was made  recently when J. E. Wing, of San  Jose, Cal., accepted an order from  Harry R. Warreo, of Wabuska,  Nev., for 2000 queens and 6000  pounds of bees in packages, for an  amount.exceeding S15,00-.).  Mr. Wing is Canadian born, and  first saw California^ wben six years  of age  At the age of 12 he had 162 colonies of bees, but later gave up beekeeping for professional bicycle  racing, which he kept up for a  period of ten years.  When the bicycle fad died out be  took up queen rearing as a vocation,  going from yard to yard on a motorcycle. He now has 1300 colonies of  bees. He tests his own queens aud  then hands theui over to his staff for  the purpose of breeding. His annual  output in the past has been 20,000  packages, a large part, of which finds  its way into British Columbia.  Revan Hugh, Cloverdale apiarist,  is at present a member of Mr. Wing's  staff. He is of the opinion that Brit  ish Colombia produces a finer honey  than the district of San Jose.  BEE INSPECTOR  VISITS THE VALLEY  Victoria, April   19.���������-A  circular  letter issued by   the  department  of  agriculture this week brings  to  the  notice of beekeepers of the  province  the new Apiarist Act   1919.    Under  the provisions of this law every person   who   beeps   bees   must register  name and_address with the department on or before June 1. The registration   fee   is   a dollar and a half,  with an additional25 cents for every  hive over six, but not exceeding the  maximum of five dollars.    The  act  also stipulates that bees shall not be  kept   except   in   a   "frame" hive,  meaning that the old soap box   and  homermade contraption is legislated  out   of  existence, only hives   with  movable frames carrying the  combs  will be tolerated. This is to allow for  thorough inspection of   all parts  of  the "bee nest" Furthermore, no bees  may may be moved from any prop  erty until they have been examined  by a government inspector and given  a clean bill of health. This ruling obtains SO long as the district is known  to .be, infected with foulbrood.     This dread disease is the cause of  5 25   what appears to   be  drastic   legislation.   It   is   an   infectious epidemic  that   attacks   and   kill**   the young  brood   in   the   hive.     Thirty three  apiaries in Vancouver were   affected  last year and over forty in the Fraser  valley.  The violence of the outbreak  led the British Columbia Beekeepers  association to apply for the registration of beekeepers and an increased  inspectorate. The registration  fee is  to provide funds for inspection.  It is understood that three new  inspectors will be engaged for this  year, one for Greater Vancouver and  New Westminster, aud the other  two for the Faser valley. The island  will have one to itself, as will the  Kootenays and theOkanagau valley.  Over sixteen hundred beekeepers  have their names on the records of  the department of agriculture, and  there are many more, the owuers of  one or two hives, who do not regard  themselves as beekeepers, and who  probably have taken no interest in  bee matters at all beyoud taking a  little honey in the fall for their own  use.  But the act applies to these people CTT1),rpv rvir, ^ KC;ni . ,-xy,  equally with the professional  apiar- kURYEl  OI< GAbCADL-  ist, and they   must   either   comply       ROSSLAND HIGHWAY  with its demands or sell their  bees.

"Some one, just for a joke, asked  for some swaet potato seeds. The  clerk hunted all through the seeds  but could find no sweet potato seeds  and finally appealed to the boss.  "The latter explained that he was-  being kidded and cautioned him  about not letting smart Alecks put  anything over on him.  A few days later a lady entered  the store and asked for some bird  seed.  '��������� 'Aw, go on,' grinned the clerk,  'you can't kid me. Birds is hatched  from eggs.' " ;  All He Had  W. J. Sheppard,of Nelson, pro  viucial bee inspector, arrived in. the.  city on Tuesday, and in the evening  he gave a very interesting Lcture,  illustrated with lantern slides, in  th'3 parish ballon beekeeping. Every  one interested in bees in the valley  was present.  Mr. Sheppard's addre-s fully   cov  ered   tbe  physiology  of the   honey  bees, their habits  and  their   mode  of   gathering    honey,    pollen   and  ptopoiis; how to handle  them;  the  best method of wintering them; bow  to build strong'colonies, so as to ob  tain the maximum honey flow; how-  to   control   swarming   and   how to  t.atch and  hive swarms.    The   diseases  of   bees   were   also  fully ex  plained, as well as the best  method  of guarding against them and eradicating  them.    The  construction   of  hives and a description of the   tools  required by tbe apiarist  also   came  in for a thorough explanation.  On Wednesday aud Thursday Mr.  Sheppard inspected all tbe colonies  of bees in the valley. He found  them all healthy and in excellent  condition.  Mr. Sheppard returned to Nelson  this morn*������g.  Victoria, April 23.���������Hon. John  Nliver will not quit office at present.  In a statement he made this morning, he replied to: demands of returned soldiers made on Tuesday  that tbe government should resign  and test the feeling of the people.  Premier Oliver said today:  "Immediate dissolution of the  government would prevent a thorough investination of our possible  sources of revenue and the preparation of the legislation necessary to  be enacted at the next session of the  province.  "Immediate dissolution, with   all  the uncertainties attendant thereon,-  would have a disastrous effect upon  our industrial development.  "Immediate dissolution would  make impossible the many puMic  works being undertaken by tbe gov  ernmeclt,- .partly ���������'- for development  purposes and partly to provide employment for returued and returning  soldieis. To grant your request for  an immediate dissolution would  dissolution would demonstrate the  unfitness of this government to govern, as your demand for dissolution  has demonstrated your unfitness to  act as public advisors.  "I have an absolute conviction  that the best interests of this province will be served best by the practice of industry, economy and sta  bility as opposed to agitation, strife,  strikes, dissolutions, elections and  chaos "  Premier Oliver's answer was received with no surprise in returned  soldier circles. Many ofthe veterans cheerfully admitted yesterday  that they were hardly ready for a  political fight.  "We regard the Victoria visit as a  great success from the organization  and propaganda standpoint," said  an officer today.  "During the coming months we  shall get ready for the next conquest," he added.  In the course of his lengthy address today, the premier "respectfully declines" to consider the request that his government resign  forthwith. Ths premier quotes a  memorandum from the civil service  commissioner showing that from  July, 191S, to April 19 of this year  146 returned soldiers and only 30  civilians, girls and juniors, were appointed to positions under the government.  "In view of the incontrovertible  facts," he adds, "will you withdraw  your indictmeni and apologize for  the wrong you have done?"

FRIDAY, APRIL  25,  ���������1010  The   Sun   in  the  past   has   not  been very  lavish in showering encomiums on the present  provincial government.    Premier Oliver's firm  refusal to accede' to the demand for a dissolution of the government, however, calls for our  admiration. A dissolution of the government  at   this' particular  time, when every  citizen  should do his utmost to assist in   readjusting  the. national to the pre-war standard, or to a  better condition.could only lead, as the premier  wisely says, to agitation, strife, strikes, disso-  tions, elections and choas.    We can  wait another year for the turmoil of a  general   election.    In the meantime it is the duty of every  person to help to make life under peace  con  ditions more pleasant and more endurable.  If any:,One doubts the need of.Canadians  continuing to save as they did while the Huns  were hammering at the gates of Amiens, let  him look at the'sstimates recently submitted  to parliament. They provide for an estimated  expenditure of $800,000,000 during 1919-20.  Of this -$437,000,000 is on civil and $350,000,-  000 on war account. At best not more than  $350,000,000 of this could be raised by taxation. The rest must come chiefly through  borrowing from the people of Canada. This  explains why war savings and thrift stamps  have been introduced, and, incidentally, they  enable every person earning money to invest it  in a government eecurity that pays well.  f  Your   Eyes   Are Bread  Winers,  9 You can buy false teeth, false hair, or an artificial leg or  arm, but you can^not buy new eyes.    ���������-.-���������������  ' "' ��������� *   -      -  S It is important, then, that you take care of your eyes,  and at the first indication of Eyestrain have them fitted  with Lenses. ���������       .  ==^  1  JEWELER AND OPTICIAN  GRAND FORKS, B.C.  ^  J  Why should not the reconstruction boards  in this country be renamed readjustment  boards? Canada has not been devasted by  war, and there is really nothing to reconstruct  here, but a great many things must be readjusted before the masses become-satisfied with  the present civilization. Of course, "reconstruction" may sound more important than "re1  adjustment"; but then if we.begin to hunt for  important names for. .things, the habit may  grow on us until finally we; will; be calling pur  aldermen sultans or emperors. ^  The western inventor who is said to have  made a rifle that uses gasoline instead of powder may revolutionize the whole science of  firearms, remarks the Youth's Companion. He  announces that gasoline has seven times the  the power of the best powder; that a gallon of  Lrasoline is enough to bombard London; that  a barrel of it will provide ammunition for two  Mexican revolutions. Is the time coming  when the hunter will carry merely a bottle of  gasoline and a spark plug?  By a curious coincidence the armistice became effective on the eleventh hour of the  eleventh day of the eleventh month. That in  itself might seem to indicate that to the kaiser  eleven is a fateful number, but another coincidence gives the- theory even greater weight.  The eleventh verse of the eleventh chapter of  the eleventh book of the Bible says: "Wherefore the Lord  said  unto  Solomon, Inasmuch  As might be expected, the current  number  of the Round Table, that excellent  quarterly  review  of the politics of the British empire,  deals chiefly with two subjects  most prominent   in   world  affairs  at  the  present time,  namely, the   practical  organization   of peace  and  the  league  of nations and Bolshevism.  America and world responsibility is  also   discussed, for   the   trend of events invParis, it is  noted, has been fast bringing the United States  face to face with the issue. "German Democracy at the Cross Roads" is the  title  of another  pertinent  and-informing article.    It is  recognized that unless the foundations of  the  new German government are well  aqd   truly  laid, the world will not be safe for democracy.  The other articles cover the politics of India,  Canada, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia  and the United Kingdom.    The discussion on  the league of nations���������the  practical organization   of peace���������is most illuminating at  this  per:od7 when the league is to be  presented to  the  world  as a finished creation.   Thejbasic  principle, as here laid down, is one   that   will  appeal to the common people.   It is that  foreign policy should no longer be subject to irrelevant ambitions, foreign  to the needs and  interests of plain citizens, that these needs and  interests must be brought into  the  sdhere of  foreign  policy���������be  made matters of common  concern, with  the supervision  of the organs  established for    their   treatment���������the  main  business of foreign  ministers.    The Round  Table argues that a league organized on these  lines can strike its roots as deap as the people  united in it may desire; but that without such  organization,   co-extensive with  all the common needs of nations, international courts  of  arbitration, justice of conciMion, international  commissions of enquiry of international paper  guarantees will be but so  many duplications  of the old diplomacy���������fences of withes  without  roots and  without  life which will burst  asunder at the first pressure  of secret ambi  tion or popular unrest.

The, labor man today says to man who advocates injustice, or any  the Christ: "When we saw Thee, j system which is not fair to all men,  and hungered and fed Thee, or: has no right to the name no matter  thirsty and gave Thee drink," be-' what church be belongs to.  cause he is ignorant of the fact that; It is frequently remarked that a  the good ideas be is harboring for new religion is coming to tbe fore,  the   bent lit   of   mankind   is part of  and many churches think   they   ate  CTTRTSTT \NS! th<'  Clirist'    tho   onl-v   Christ there  the 'Chosen" one.

Prob-ibly the most surprised man  in tbe universe would bo a labor  man who is deriding the church  teachings and scolling Bible beliefs  in a Sunday meeting to be told that  he is a Christian. To be told that he  ia more Christian than the preacher  who cries "Praise the Lord" from  his fashionable pulpit might be  taken as a joke or an insult by either  party. But if Chrtstian means anything, it means good ideas, pnrma  nent ideas, truth, and therefore the  man who harbors good ideas is a  Christian,   whether   be    knows it or  man is holding ideas which will  benefit mankind and nourishing  them, be \n protecting the Christ  which was before Abraham, which  Jesus taught, and which the church  and capita I ii-m would crucify in its  new body, as they tried to crucify it  in the man Jesus, 2000 years ago.  Jesus said, "I (the Chrisi)am the  way, the truth and the life " This  "I," this "Way," this "Truth," this  "Life," is the good ideas such as  justice, peace and good will to men,  etc., etc.,and the man who cherishes  these ideas is a Christian, while   tbe  lzttion. It is free from f-uperstinon  aud dogma; it is pure Christian, for  it recognizes Christ as the good ideas  which are "the way, the truth, and  the life," leading to heaven and  earth, and its followers are tiue  Christians.

"The  patients in this way obtained movable  thumbs that in every respect were  practically useful and natural in ap  ���������pearance, especially in the case of the  great toe, since this was exceptionally  small and dexterous."  Even more wonderful was the re  placement of four lost fingers by four  toes. The toes were partly cut through  and the stump on the hand being at  tached, the perioste"um_(and fibrous  tissues that covers the bones) of the  toes was sewn to thai of the finger  stumps. The tendons, soft parts, and  . skin were also sewn together, and  then the hand and foot were fixed in  plaster of I^aris. For a month the pa  tient lay in a .very uncomfortable position. '������������������;���������*���������'���������/.':  At the end of that time the toes  were completely separated from the  foot, and soon after the patient had a  useful had. At the same time he could  walk almost as well as ever "with a  strong and freely movable  great toe "  The Retort Grisp  After the grand review of German  troops at Potsdam the kaiser called  out    to   the  officer   commanding the  - Prussian Guard, in a voice loud  enough to be heard by all ihe distinguished guests who were grouped iu  front of the palace: "Pick me out a  hundred     men     from    the    Prussian  -Guard!" Then, taking the arm of  King Edward -VII, who was there, ha.  said,. "Come with me." He escorted  King Edward very delicately round  the hundred men and then said ban-  t.ei*ingly, "Well, do you think you  couid find a hundred men in England  to beat them?"  "Well, promptly replied the late  king, "I could easily find fifty who  would try.'V  Stopping the Trial  '���������Gentlemen," said the sheriff, put  ting his head into the jury room, "if  there is no chance of your agreeing  immediately upon a verdict, the judge  will step out to lunch."  "Tell his honor he may go to lunch,"  said the foreman.  "I was about to add," continued  the sheriff, "that the circus comes to  town at 2 o'clock, and it's twenty  minutes to 2 now."  ���������*H'tn," said the foreman, "tell the  judge to hold on half a minute."  LIFT OFF CORNS!  Apply few drops then lift  sore,  touchy corns off with  fingers  Doesn't hurt a tit! Drop a little  Freezone on an aching corn, instantly  that corn stop3 hurting, then you lift  it right out.    Yes, magic!  A tiny bottle of Frcezonc costs but a  few cents at any drug storo, but is sufficient to remove every hard corn, soft  corn, or corn between the toes, and tho  calluses, without soreness or irritation.  Freczone is the sensational discovery  cf a Cincinnati ^erfiiis.   It is wonderful.  COMMUNISTIC  PLANS BARRED  "Vancouver, April 211���������Speaking to  about three hundred returned soldiers  and others who gathered in- the, board  of trade offices on Wednesday night,  F. B. Stacey, M.P., who is here from  Ottawa in reference to organized com  munity settlements of returned . men,  said that this community settlement  plan was not entirely for the men who  returned on the Empress of Asia. Any  other group of men who formed elsewhere in the Dominion could have  the same privileges.  Strong  emphasis  was laid on the fact that the government still regarded and would continue to deal with the soldiers as individuals. It would not recognize any  communistic scheme or joint stock  plan. Them mvere allowed to settle  in communities, but the personal, responsibility of each man to the government was in no way affected.  The extent to which the government was prepared to go in helping  communtities of soldiers was outlined  by the sperker. After the group, of  men got together on the land, if they  so desired, the government would re  serve a block of land   in  their   midst  for the erection of a hall, church or  some other building to be used for  public or community purposes. The  government would also reserve blocks  of land in these communities for the  soldier who had to undergo agricultural training before lie could take  his place among the others.  A Tidy Distance  "Why,it's blowin' somethin' awful,  Misther Doolin." she remarked to her  neKt-door neighbor, who was passing  in to dinner. .  "It's all tnat, muni,"    he   agreed,  ''an' sure it must   be twenty times as  as bad down at the.factory, 'cause I  heard a while ago that yer husband  was blown to atoms wid a load of  powdher he was dhrivin'."  "Blown to atoms," echoed the woman, "an' where's that?"  "Divil a know I know," answered  Doolin, "but it must be a tindy distance away, for I never heard tell of  the pi ace before."  "Was papa the first mah who ever  proposed to you mamma'!" "Yes, but  why do you ask1?" "I was just thinking that you might have done better  if you had   shopped   around   a   littlo  P^^*SSS3  more.  .h.
