 '<������  CouncilEndorses Commis  sioners'' Choice   for  Chief of Police  Mayor Acre and Aid. Harkness,  McArrjle/McCabe, McCallum, McDonald and Schnitter were present  at the regular meeting of the city  council on Monday evening.  A Ienghty circular from Ottawa,  stating that civic governments had  power to punish persons for wilful  waste of food or food products, was  referred to the police commissioners.  Deputy Minister of Agriculture  Scott wrote urging the council to  adopt a stringent noxious weed bylaw, as it was important that  strict measures be taken to comply  with the provincial act in order that  production might be stimulated.  Referred to the board of works.    .  Poundkeeper Wood head ��������� complained because the chief of police  had let two horses out of the pound  without collecting his fee. The council thought his redress lay with the  chief or with the owners of the  horses, but passed a resolution to  the effect that in future no;.city employee .should���������- interfere: with 'the"  poundkeeper's work.  The chairman of the  health  and  relief committee reported that clean  up   day   had   apparently   been  as  successful as in former years.  The chairman  of the parks  com  mittee reported, that,100 shade trees  had been ordered to  replace   those  that had died on Winnipeg  avenue  and in the cemetery.  The time for the return of the  assessor's roll was extended to  May 3.  Mayor   Acres  reported   that  the  ��������� police commissioners  had  met   on  Monday afternoon and sifted down  the applications'for the   position  of  chief   of   police   to   three   names.  These were:   A. Anthony,  who had  had considerable experience on  the  South Vancouver police force;  Jas.  Norgrove,  of  Feruie, formerly provincial constable, and M.   J.   Quin-  livan,of this city.    The commissioners would meet on Tuesday to make  the appointment, and he wished   to  know if the appointment of   any   of  the above mentioned men  would be  SBtistactory   to  the   council.    Aid.  McCallum offered a resolution,which  wa3 approved, to the effect that the  council would endorse any appointment   the    commissioners     might  make.    Aid.     McArdle,   Harkness,  McDonald and McCabe were strongly in favor of giving the position to a  home man.  Commissioner Hobden,  who   was ^.present, said   the Grand  Forks police department   had  fallen  into so bad repute that  he   thought  the appointment of an outside man  might be advisable.  be antagonized���������by the new suggestions .of. a peace to.be based on  cash and conquest. But they are  plainly determined that their influence on the war shall not be diminished by any risk of conflicting  counsels in Europe. The true answer to-., the kaiser's speech is that  the allies are not only more determined in spirit, but that they are  powerfully reinforced in numbers,  and that they are tending every day  towards greater unity of purpose  and control.  on  New Mining Tax Measure  Passes the Provincial  Legislature  Work has started on the building  of the railway from 'Princeton to  Copper mountain. W. P. Tierney &  Son have the contract. Next'month  upwards of 1000 men will be   work-  This branch of the Kettle Valley  railway from Princeton to Copper  mountain, where the Canada Copper corporation is proceeding with a  development program running:, into  the millions of dollars, will be con,  structed at a cost of about one million dollars. Details of the undertaking have been given out by Mr.  Tierney, who says, that the branch  line will be fifteen miles in length,  and two miles of that distance is declared to he the hardest, piece of  construction work ever "undertaken  in the province. There is a total of  twenty-seven trestles on the line,  four large "tunnel?,, open cuts of  great height and one extremely large  fill. Contractor Tierney states tLat  he expects to have everything in  shape in two weeks to let subcontracts. Pie expressed no fear of a la  bor shortage. The'undertaking wi  require about a year to complete.  Victoria, April 25.���������Tbe 1917  act affecting mining taxation is altered to a great degree. The 1917  act taxed mining companies 2 per  cent ou the output of ore and in addition 10 per cent on the income.  No allowance was made for development or depreciation of smellers or  other mining plants  The act brought down this year  relieves mining companies from the  payment of the double tax and  makes them pay 2 per cent on the  output of the ore or 10 per cent on  income, whichever is the greater. It  also allows depreciation on plant up  to 15 per cent, and what is of more  consequence to the mining industry,  makes a liberal allowance for development expenditure. The last  mentioned su bject was the cause of  considerable discussion between the  government and the mining interests. The development clause now  permits of the deduction by mining  comp'anies .from their taxable in  come of the total development costs  incurred by them in producing the  ore.  Under the new act farm implements are exempted from taxation  up to an amount of $1500.  tie  front and the absolute need of the  men remaining at their posts until  the crisis is over. No extensions or  leave on furlough will therefore be  granted, except for medical reasons,  to officers and men of the overseas  forces now in-Canada.  Food Conservation  Advices have been received by the  local food conservation committee  that Miss Olive Hayes, provincial  demonstrator in war food economy,  will open her series of conferences  and demonstrations with the women  of Grand Forks at the Davis ball  on Monday, April 29th, 191S, at  2.30 p.m.  A committee from Grand Forks  Chapter, I.O.D.E., headed by Mrs.  G. A. Spink, is in charge of the ar-  ?angements for the meetings. The  use of the DaAis ball banquet room  has been donated for the purpose  by Jeff Davis & Co., and it is expected 'that the'demonstrations will  be continued daily for most of the  coming week.  Every1 Person Over Sixteen   Years   of Age  Must Register  Reminded Him of Home  The burglar had entered the'house  as quietly as possible, but his shoes  were not padded and they made  some noise. - He had just reached  the bedroom when he heard some  one moving in the bed as if about  to get up, and he paused. The sound  of a woman's voice floated to his  ears. "If you don't take off your  boots when you come into this  house," it said, "there is going to  be trouble, and a lot of it. Here it's  been raining for three hours, and  you dare tramp over my carpets  with your muddy boots on. Go  downstairs and take them off this  minute." He went downstairs with  out a word, but he didn't take off  his boots. Instead he went straight  into the night again, and the pal,  who was waiting far him, saw a tear  glisten in his eye. "I can't rob  that house," he said; "it reminds  me of home."  Edgar Bailey, of Eholt, this week  took a five years' lease on the fluorite  property near Lynch creek owned  by B. J. Averill and C. M. Tobias-  sen, of this city, and a Phoenix  partner. The lease runs from May  1st, this year. The owners are to  get SI per ton royalty, and tbe lessee agrees to take out at least three  thousand tons of ore yearly, and as  much over that amount as he can  find a market for. There is, it -is said,  an immense body of fluorspar ore  on this property.  At present there is only a trail  from Lynch creek to the property,  and it is expected that the lessee  will start work next month building  a road to the mine.  - Mayor M.. R. McQuarrie, of Nelson, has received a letter from Capt,  W. Garland Foster,, giving particulars of how Capt. McQuarrie was  wounded. Capt. Foster states* that  his battalion had reason to believe  that they were up against fresh German troops and that for some days  they were not able to get any prisoners. Capt. McQuarrie was in charge  of a raiding party which went out  with orders to get prisoners and information. Shortly after entering  the German trenches he was made  the target of a stick bomb, or, as the  Canadians call them, "potato mash  ers" The bomb hit his revolver and  exploded as it glanced past his ear.  Capt. Foster states that he has lost  his ear, but that-the wound was not  so bad as to stop him from bringing  back two prisoners.  Ottawa, April 23.���������Registration  of the man and woman-power  throughout the Dominion is expected to be completed by ' the end  of June. Announcement to this  effect was made in the house of  commons last night by F. B. Mc-  Curdy, one of the members of the  Canadian registration board. The  regulations under which the registration of man and woman-power of  Canada will be effected have now  been approved by order in council.  Upon a day that will be fixed by  proclamation, every person over  the age of sixteen years will be  required to attend -at one of tbe  places of registration and there answer truthfully a.few simple questions set forth upon a card.  There is no maximum age of GO  for the registration of the man and  woman power of Canada, to take  place in June, according to W. G.  Gates, of Moose Jaw, who has been  appointed superintendent for Saskatchewan. Every person over sixteen, whether British or alien, will  be required to register.  ions  re  THE WEATHEK  The  following  is  the   minimum  and maximum temperature for each  The  pound   bylaw, tbe  dog   tax' d"y   during  the   past   week, as re-  (^American Convoys  Preven t A ttacks  Amstkkdam, April 23���������A German writer, Capt.

There has not been much  activity on the western front  during the pa$t seven days,  and the war situation remains  about the same as last week.  The outlook for the allies,  however, has greatly improved, as it now seems to be  a certainty that the enemy  will never be able to break  through the British lines.  The next big drivei wll surely  be made in the direction of  Berlin.     .  The  provincial   legislature  adjourned this week.   Proba-  V-bly three-fourths ofthe people  of the province are-not aware  of   the   fact that the British  Columbia  parliament  held a  session this winter.   This lack  of interest in the local government may be due partly to the  big war in Europe and   partly  to die fact that the present administration  at  Victoria  depends entirely on   free advertising  for  its publicity.   The  result is that even the newspaper'-men   frequently forget  who rnles a t tne coast.    1.)ur-  ing the late session  tlie  government, when it was  not engaged iu answering tlie opposition's questions and explaining its motives and  appointments, succeeded  in passing  some new laws and in improving some of the old acts, especially the  mining  laws.    For  the  latter   work   the   minim-*  communities are truly  thankful.    But  the big  war  must  take the major portion of the  blame for the  people's  disinterestedness  in   the proceedings.    With   Europe   aflame  with martial ardor, they  may  well   be pardoned   for   overlooking  a   little    internicine  warfare and political strife at  home.  which the British government made  to this question   was one expressed  in action,and not   in   words.    Ade  quale  living   conditions   were   provided.    There   was   no   hesitation.  Land was seized. Communities with  schools, churches,   hospitals, clubs,  markets   and    the   ameniiies   were  provided.     A-  hi������h    standard   was  miinlnined, and these communities  star.d   today   as  an   expression   of  good judsrhent,. IVrsightednpss   and  a substantialv future   asset;   for   it  must be remembered that there will  be in Great Britain a  sprious   shortage of homps  for   those   who   labor  alter the war.    Some of   those communities created during the urgency  of the war   will   stand, in   post-war  days,   as   monuments     to    British  thoroughness."  of the three who were chosen   from  one hundred applicants in   Toronto  to go to the United States and speak  daily   about   the Liberty loan, says  the Ledge.

This week- hostilities were  renpwed in this ppc.tnr, wtiere the  hittereet kind of fighting has been  going on lately. At. many points in  Canada, especially the larger centers, celebrations of the event were  held.  The Youth's Companion  lruikes this timely and sensible observation: This year  there is more reason than  there ever was before for burning no powder on tlie Fourth  except on the battle front.  There was never better cause  to celebrate the day,-but let  us not celebrate it by killing  or maiming those whom the  county will need in years to  come.

Royde, No  5*26426, H company, 8th reserve battalion, East Sanding, Kent, to write  to the Nelson Daily News asking if  there is some ono in tho Nelson district who would write to him His  letter follows:  "It may seem strange that 1 should  write to your paper, as [ have'never  been in Nelson, but several of my  chnms in France are natives of that  vicinity and I have heard so much of  it that it has created in me a desire to  visit there on my return to Canada I  was wounded slightly in the Cambrai  afhiir last' October and am now in  convalescent training at my reserve,  preparatory to returning to France. I  am, or was before I joined the 'Canadian forces, an American citizen given  to roaming in the guise of a traveling  salesman. Although my circle of acquaintances was very wide, my friends  wore rather few and fiir between and  J. have always felt a strong lack of  correspodence. In this connection I  would like., to get acquainted with  some of your readers through the mails  and if you could give me space enou������h  to publish this letter, I should feel  everlastingly oblighed to you.  Spring Management  of Your Bee Colonies  Examine your colonies at the'first  favorable opportunity. If they are  short of store feed an easy method is  to fill a jam jar with syrup,one cup of  sugar to one cup of water, cover the  opening with cotton, and invert jar  over brood nest. This may bo givtu  twico a week until such time as the  bees are able to bring in nectar from  fruit blossoms. j  Should you have a colony that is :  suffering from spring dwindling crowd  the remaining bees on as few fraun s  as possible and feed, giving mote  room as bees increase. Kemember,beos  are easily discouraged by being in a  large brood chainbor with an insuf  iieient number to cover the centre  brood frames.  Work for tho production of young  bees; your success will depend upon  them, and not on the bees that have  been in the hive all winter. Do not  be too anxious to put on supers until  you see the new white wax making its  appearance along the top edge of the  brood frames.  In the, past it has been repeatedly  stated by men in this province, "Do  not feed, let the bees build up natur  ally." 1 usually watch the man who  has made a success of his work if I  wish to take an example, and not the  indifferent worker. Here is what the  late E. W. Alexander   wrote  in    re-  up the most important part of spring  management, that of stimulative feed  ing.     This,   with   its   twin    brother,  keeping   them warm,   is    the   magic  wurd that unlocks the door to a   successful summer.  I care not how much j  old capped honey a colony  may have,  there is nothing that can be.  done  to  your,  bees- during   early   spring that:  will    pay   like    keeping   them warm, j  night and clay, and   feeding   a   little  warm   syrup daily,   made   very    thin!  from  honey    or   granulated  sugar, or  both.  If fed in the feeders I invented  a few days ago, a very little will 'answer the desired purpose.    I\vo cents  worth    per    day, or   about   50   cents  worth,  if   judiciously   used,   will   be  enough to carry   the  colony   through!
