 ���������#  Kettle Valley Orcharclist  0/7  19TH YEAR���������No 27  GRAND FORKS   B. C, FRIDAY,   APRIL 30,  1920  "Tell me what you Know is true:  1 can guess as well as you."  $1.00 PER YEAR  SESSION OF JJf  CITY COUNCIL  Gonsidration of Financial  Matters Took Up Most  The Wealth of Franklin Camp;  It is now almost certain that the  Granby smelter will not open up  again as far as Grand Forks is concerned. However, that does not  mean that ''mining prosperity will  Oil    the      Time     of   tho stop, nor does it mean   that   the  C  Eveniiij  The mayor and all the aldermen  were present at the regular meeting  of the city council on Monday evening.  A letter from District Land Registrar Craig, Kamloops, stated a list  of the Grand Forks assessment roll,  as revised, was being forwarded, accompanied by a bill, for $2S0. In  future alterations would be sent  monthly at 7 cents per name. The  e tter was filed and the bill ordered  lpaid.  A letter from F. A. McDiarmid,  Vancouver, solicitor for the Union  of B. C. Municipalities, stated that  he required more data in regard to  the proposed bond issue in order to  draft a bylaw. He desired to know  tbe length of time the bonds were to  be issued for, tbe amount, rate of interest, nature of the bonds, security, etc. On motion ol Aid. Hull, it  was decided that 8(30,000 be issued  for a period of twenty years, at 7  per cent interest, in denominations  of ������500, and tbat the sinking fund  plan system be adopted. The clerk  was instructed to furnish Mr. McDiarmid with this information.  A letter from Manager Niles, of  ihe Bank of Commerce, stated that  the bank looked favorably on a loan  of $11,500, with Victory-bond se  curity, with which to meet the redemption of the debentures maturing next months. He also promised  a temporary loan of from $10,010  to ������12,00.0. The cleik was instructed to write to Mr. Niles.  A letter from Victoria stated thai  the Municipal act gave the lieuteu������  ant governor in council power to apn  point police magistrates and to fix  their salaries. On motion of Aid.  Hull, the back increase, as provided  by order in council, in the salary of  the local police magistrate was or-  deied  paid.  Applications for the position of  city electrician were laid over until  the next meeting.  The committee reports were short  and unimportant. '  The contract for doing the city  teaming work was awarded to the  City Cartage company at ������9 per day  for day and half*day work, $1.25  per hour for less than half a day  aud for street sprinkling, and 81.00  per hour for one horse and driver.  The prices put on city lots by tbe  finance committee were approved.  Aid. Hull gave notice that at the  P: R. is through with Phoenix; but  it.does mean that the system of giving ore' a ride on the train befjre  reducing or concentrating it is out of  date. Only limited quantities of ore  can be hauled over any distance in  the rough state. , "���������  It is a weir known fact that tributary to Grand Forks there are valuable mines which are only now be  ing prospected, and it behooves the  people and the business men of  Grand Forks to stand behind the  prospectors in their struggle for better roads, railway transportation  and suppltes if they hope to get the  business which will mean so much  to this city.  It --will-be' news   to many of our  citizens  to   learn  that   in Franklin  camp the ores are not only   rich   in  silver,   gold,   copper and   lead*   but  carry   exceptional    values   fn   the  platinum group of minerals.    Hith  eito only limited tests for  platinum  were   made.    Recently   the   Maple  Leaf company, after waiting for some  three  years -on   the government for  infbmWion   promised   them,   with  negative results, have spent  a  considerable sum of money on the complete analysis of their ores,   consulting some of  the  best authorities in  New York City and  Seattle, besides  a number of others, and the  results  were very-encouraging.   The  ore  is  very complex   As shown by the analysis, all   of   the ores carry copper,  gold and silver in varying amounts.  Some of   tbe   ore   is nickel-copper;  others carry good values in lead, but  the principal value, well distributed  through   all   of   the ore, is iridium,  platinum,      palladium,     osmium,  rhodium and ruthenium;   The   first  is   worth   $600   per ounce, and the  last   five  together ������102 per ounce..  Tbe   last car of  Maple Leaf copper  ore shipped to the Granby   smelter,  yielding $28 per ton net, would now  be. worth ������128 per ton  independent  of  the   metals   then   paid for, and  which would now   be  looked   upon  as merely a byproduct.   The significance of this can   be   better   understood by comparison.   One ounce of  iridium in tbe matte is pqual   to  20  ounces of gold, and   each  ounce  of  the  other   platinum   metals equals  eight ounces of'gold   or about    150  ouuees of silver.  Recent assays on pulp from car  lot shipments yielded over three-  fourths of ao ounce per ton of crude  now worth from ������20,000 to S2G,000  in the, east.    The copper-nlck-d  ores  of Cobalt, Ont., carry small  qunnti-  -ties   of   the   noble   metals, and the  British    American .Nickel  corporation considers it of sufficient importance to put in ao up to date electro  lytic refinery for their recoverv.  ;   Compare these sources   with   our  own   Franklin   distriot,   where   t'be  platinum mineral in the Black Lead  ores hold out in such superior quantities   for   a   distance of  four miles,  across the camp, and  are  also   carried by the Union ores, which when  concentrated Will  amount   to   con  siderable. "; "  The Rock Candy mine is now cue  of the big mines of Canada. This  mine shipped 32 per cent of the  total production of .'fluorspar, in  1918-19. The consumption of fluor  spar in Canada is 10,000 to 15,000  tons.  '���������-  The Bertha-Pathfinder, a mine  which has been proved as a shipper,  is to be put in full operation on a  big scale, and there are scores of  other properties which deserve mention, and if we will make it a point  to inform ourselves, we must deeide  that we are living in the center of  one of the best districts in the world.  Why not help to boost;it along?  The  following letters show   how  pome assurance that transportation  will be furnished. I thank you for  writing me on this subject, and  while it will be too late for me to do  yov any good, dt gives me an op  portunuy to place - the attitude of  the McKinley company before your  association.

We intended at that time to  put in a sawmill up there as soon as  the road went io, and that is still  our idea, although it is possible that  we will take out the timber by rail  to some other point.  When the timber is removed, we  ntend to colonize our land, which  offers, as you doubtless know,a very  rich return for agricultural develop  ment. We have had some coloniza  tion enquiries already, but uutil we  know when the railroad is   actually  All of the Machinery Will  Probably Be Out of the  Granby at Phoenix by  the First of June  The dismantling of thn Granby  mine at Phoenix is now in progress  The first car for the removal of machinery will be taken to the camp  tomorrow. The work of dismantling  the property will be completed by  the 30th of June. Some of the railway roadbed will have to be repaired in the meantime. It is reported that the railway steel may be  taken up after the removal of the  machinery, but no positive statement has been made on   this  point.  the   development  of  this rich   dis- going to be constructed we are hold  tirct is being retarded by the lack of.. ing our plans of all  kinds in   abe}'-  transportation facilities:  Butte, Mont., April 12, 1920.���������  Mr. Leo Mader, Grand Forks, B.'C.  ���������Dear Sir: Your favor' of March  24th has just reached me in Montana.

North  Fork-  country  and  the mineral wealth of Franklin  camp furnish incontrovertible proof that that  district is capable of supplying sufficient, tonnage  to   make  a railway  from  this city to  the  mines  in  Franklin a paying proposition.  With this evidence at hand, the people of the  district feel chagrined, to say the least, at the  action of the Ottawa.government  in granting  the Kettle Valley line  an   extension of time  in   which   to  complete  its line up the North  Fork.   Mr. 'Bun-ell's passive  inactivity  when  -the matter was before  the house  is as much  condemned by the citizens of this  section   of  the country as is the action of Mr. Green, the  member  for  Nelson, a\1io got upon the'floor  of the house and spoke in favor of the delay.  A List why'Mr. Green trespassed on ''affairs that  should have concerned our   local   member  is  probably 'best  known   by  Mr.   Green.    The  advice    that  the  people  of   Grand    Forks  would like to personally convey to Mr.  Green  is, that he attend to the business of his  con-  stitoency.    If he  does this  satisfactorily, he  will have all he can do!   '  It is not easy to realize the magnitude of  tlie task of reconstruction that France must  undertake. According to the director-general  of the technical service, building along will  require 22,000,000 tons of material and the  labor of 700,000 men for a year, and work on  highways and railways will take 3,000,000 tons  of material and the labor of 15,000 men for a  year.

A Soldier-Settler's Despairing Act-An Official Narrative  In tlie general sense of tlie term poverty iu  British Columbia is not understood. There is  an idea abroad, of course, that the people find  it difliclut to elude the spectre of want. But  hunger and thirst, aro looked upon more in the  nature of a state of mind rather than an actual  condition. It would not occur to the aAera-'-e  thinking person, for instance, that in a land of  plenty any of its people would be so reduced  in circumstances that the "next meal" could  assume a problematical event. And tin* inner  ent weakness to place too much reliance in the  Micawbor theory invariably discounts the  belief that the few isolated o:-!.������."* ;���������������������������!������������������ ns ;iad as  the indefinite .reference would ������"������k to portray.  That a grateful country ,:ouid allow one of its  former fighting men to struggle for very existence is a circumstance not easy to grasp. Yet  it requires very little mor than a cursory glance  nver the files ofthe British Columbia returned  soldiers' aid commission to discover  that  the  full force of domestic'tragedy has invaded the  homes of more than one of those gallant vvar-  r-'ors who offered their bodies to the ex-kciis'er's  hordes as a rampart in defence of civilization.  Is it possible to believe that in the J3rovince  of British' Columbia primitive    methods  of  burial have been resorted   to  for  the  simple  reason that a family has not possessed sufficient of this world's goods to bear the cost of a  decent'funeral'? The official records ofthe commission relate such a narrative, a narrative almost beyond conception in an age when social  progress   has  reached a plane never believed  possible a century ago. Yet the story is a simple one and its tragic details is.ma.de the more  poignant because one  of  the  players in   the  tragedy was a former member of the Canadian  expeditionary force. "^  The scene was a little homestead five miles  from a settled community fairly well known  in one of the promising districts of the province. In the family there were man and wife  and five children. The sixth tiny tot came to  town five weeks ago. The .arrival of the newly  born had been anticipated with joy by the settler and his mate. In a few days, however, long,  before the mother regained her strength, influenza invaded the home. The malady took a  severe form and with scarcely a rally after the  first onslaught both mother and child passed  into the Great Beyond.  How to find the wherewithal to give his departed loved '-ones-a decent funeral seized the  sorrowing husband in its ghastly hopelessness.  He had no money. For months past he had  labored long and diligently fighting his way  towards indopendence upon the land which he  had selected under the aegis; of the Dominion  soldier settlement board to support himself  and his wife and bairns. The struggle, however, had been a hard one. Such results of his  labor as were tangible went to provide the  bare necessities of life. 'He had not: known the  satisfaction of a margin with which some of  little extras could be obtained for his youngsters. And this new calamity faced him. His  sense of pride impelled him to keep his own  counsel. It was then that primitive instincts  and the horror of a burden of debt combined  forces and delivered him to an extraordinary  resolve. This soldier settler, one of Canada's  army who had marched away at the call of  the flag) a warrior who had looked death in  tho face for many hours on end, began to dig  a grave under the eaves of his own dwelling.  He toiled alone until his task Was accomplished and then he laid' his dead wife and the lifeless mite in the crude grave of his  own  fash-  c.v.

Happily, however, there is a sequel to this  narrative. News ol' the man's desperate resort  reached the provincial returned soldiers' commission. Not a minute was wasted in prelimi  naries, and to cover the expense of the customary burial procedure a cheque was issued  from the offices of the commission in the parliament buildings.  Perhaps no instance of domestic tragedy  which has come to tlie attention of the commission equails in ghastly detail the case of  this soldier settler. It must not be supposed,  however, that there is any lack in the variety  of suffering* endured in many instances with  little or more than a murmur. Nor does any  appeal which possess the least merit go unsatisfied. The commission could use ten times its  annual vote of a quarter of a million dollars in  alleviating deserving cases of hardship among  former members of the Canadian expeditionary force, and it was small wonder the soldier  members of the legislature paid clue tribute to  the work carried on by the commission in its  own nnostentious fashion.  Every document on what Secretary Pyke  call the commission's "thank you''file provides  the proof that many returned men's families  have obtained both human sympathy and practical aid at the hands of this department of  the provincial service.

Rich and  poor, old and young, are enraptured  with his easy manner and happy expression. He is so different to what  many expected.  No wonder a great demand has  been created for a real life-like portrait of our popular future king.  Photographers and artists have failed  to secure a satisfactory snapshot of  the royal visitor. He was not here to  pose for them. It remained for The  Family Herald and Weekly Star of  Montreal to secure a portrait that  would be satisfactory, and they have  succeeded. Just before leaving for  Canada the prince gave a special sitting to the celebrated London, England, photographer, VanDyke. The  agents of The Family Herald were  instructed to secure the right to re  produce it in Canada, and that great  weekly is now offering it to its  readers.  The Sun has succeeded in making  an arrangement with The Family  Herald and Weekly Star by which  our readers may have The Sun, Tha  Family Herald and Weekly Star for  one year and a copy of the portrait for  $2.25. The demand for this portrait  in Canada will be enormous, and we  advise pur readers to take advantage  of this opportunity without delay.
