Death of Burke Jewell  Burke.Jewell, one of the prominent fruit growers of the valley,  died at the Grand Forks hospital  yesterday afternoon of creeping paralysis after a lingering illness. Deceased was about 68 years of age,  and had been a resident of the district for. fourteen or fifteen years,  coming here from Manitoba in the  early years of the new century and  buying an orchard tract on the Covert estate. He is: survived by his  wife, one son and eight daughters-  Thomas Jewell, of Princeton; Mrs.  Henderson, of Trail; Mrs. -Brewer,  of Vancouver; Mrs. McCbrmick, of  North port; Mrs. Cagnon and Mrs.  Boswortb, of this city, and Misses  Jennie, Mabel and a younger daughter, who live at the family home  west of the city. The late Mr.  Jewell was a man of sterling integri-;  ty, and his enterprising desire to advance everything appeartainiog to  the fruit growing industry won for  him-a host of friends. The family  has the sympathy of the people of  the community in their bereavement.  The funeral will "'be. held at 4  o'clock tomorrow afternoon from  Miller & Gardner's undertaking parlors.  ������I$W  L1RAL4L1ER  Former Minister of Labor  Elected by a Small Majority Over Hon. W. S.  Fielding  C. C Heaven has an English walnut tree which is bearing this  year.  Ottawa, Aug. 8. ��������� Hon. W. L  Mackenzie King, minister of labor  in the Laurier administration, is the  new leader of the Liberal patty. He  was so acclaimed at the close of the  national convention last night, when  his most formidable opponent, Hon.  W."S. Fielding, moved that his eleo  tion be made unanimous. Mr King,  who subsequently spoke, was given  an ovation, as was also Mr. Fielding  when he congratulated bis npponent  on his victory.  With the contestants reduced to  two in number, the interest in  the final voting was intense. The  vote as announced by Hon. George  H. Murphy, chairman of the convention, was 476 for Mr. King and  437 for Mr. Fielding, a majority for  the former of 38.

Young Returned Soldier  Loses His Life in Attempting to Save a  Young Girl Bather  A very lamentable drowning  tragedy, in which a young soldier  who had seen four years'service in  France and a young girl lost their  lives, occurred about 2 o'clock yes  terday afternoon in the Kettle river  on the side opposite to the city park.  Dorothy Hunter, aged 13 yearsi  daughter of Mr. and Mr3. Hunter,  was taking a swim in the river near  A.'-F. Michener's home, when suddenly something must have hap  pened to her, as she called loudly for  help. Charles Michener, who re,  turned from overseas a couple of  weeks ago, heard the cries for help,  and without removing hs boots  or any of his clothing he swam  across the river and made an attempt to save drowning girl. In his  endeavor to rescue her, it is sup  posod that the girl got ahold of him  in some manner so as to render him  incapable of keeping afloat, becauses  s-ome small boys���������-the only witnesses  of the tragedy���������on the bank close  by, were horrified to sen ibe'twn  sink to the bottom of the river, no';  to rise alive again.  The boys immediately gave raised  an   alnrm, and   a   crowd, including  Dr.   Kingston, soon collected at the  scene ofthe fatality.    It   was   some  time, however, before a   person   ex  pert enough  to   dive for the bodies  could   be   found, as   the channel is  very deep   where   the   accident   oc  curred.    Finnlly Mr. Gerald, of Spo  kane, who is visiting with his family  home of his wife's mot her, Mrs. Ho  garty. made a    successful dive   and  brought the two victims of the  acci  dent   to   the   surface and  to   land.  But the bodies had been at the bottom    of   the   river  for fully thirty  minutes, and an attempt at   resusi-  cation was useless.  Both the victims of the accident  were pxpert swimmers, and it is supposed that at least' the girl was at  tacked by cramps, and that the  young man who made such a heroic  endeavor to save her was either  overtaken by the same malady or  was pulled under by the drowning  girl.  The double fatality  has   naturally  saddened   the   people  of the  com  munity, as well as cast two families  into deep mourning.   The late   Pte.  Michener was a bright and industri  ous  young  man,   who  served    his i  country honorably in the late strug '  gle, and   his   untimely  and   tragic'  ! death is a severe blow to  his   grief !  i  stricken    parents.      Mrs.   Michener  was in Paulson   when   the  accident  happened, but she has since return '  ed to the city.    The  funeral,  which  will be held from Miller & Gardner's .  undertaking parlors, has been   post  j  poned to Sunday afternoon in order  i to   allow   of  a brother, Richard, of  the decased to reach the  city   from  Vancouver.  The funeral of the late Miss Hun  ter will be held at   2 o'clock tomor  row afternoon from Cooper's unde'r-  Utking parlors. The untimely death  of this young lady is a severe blow  to her parents, and much sympathy  is expressed for them. The family  had a hard fight with influenza last  winter, when they lost a child from  that malady.  SEGOND EDITION  WRIGLEY'S B.C.

What Tillage Will  Do For an Orchard  The success of fin orchard projpet  in British Columbia demands that  thorough tillage be practised until  such time as the trpepare well established. Surface tillage conserves the  moisture of the winter and spring  months for the use of trees during the  period of growth and seasonal fruit  development. Tillage aerates the  soil, aiding chemical and bacterial  action in plant food production. The  Ullage operations aid in the disintegration oi the soil particles that  carry the food elements. Tilluge destroys many insects and pests and  fungus spores, thereby reducing  greatly the insect and fungus injury.;.  In the arid sections, tillage destroys the soil fibre and reduces the  vegetable matter or humus making  agent. With the fibre or vegetable  matter gone, the soil becomes more  difficult to till and poorer in nitrogen.  Tiling*' practice has a big balance  in its favor, aud is the practice of  the most successful orchardist.  Mayor Is Given $300 and  the Aldermen Vote  Themselves $175 Each.  War Trophies  Practically the only business of  any importance transacted at the  ���������meeting of the city council on Monday night was the passage of the  salary bylaw, which provides for a  salary ������300 to the mayor and $175  to each of the aldermen, with a deduction of $7 for each 'non-attendance after an absence from two meetings in the case of aldermen. The  mayor is deducted$12 for each non-  attendance after a like absence.  The mayor and Aid. Hull and  Miller Were present at the   meeting'.-  The mayor was appointed chairman pro tern of the board of works.  The past mouth's accounts were  ordered to be paid.  Sergt. -Maj Hoi brook was present,  and brought up the matter of the  council endeavoring to secure some  war trophies for the city During  the early stages of IDe war De had  caplureU u gun from the Geimaus,  and wlieu he came away-t'ruui England he bail seen it among the other  truphies oi the Canadian furcts. By  making an effort, this trophy mtgtit  be securtd for the city. Tue council  decided to do what it coula iu the  matter.  What Mulching Will  Do for an Orchard  The- Hawaiians at the Empress  Tuesday evening failed to give the  least bit of satisfaction. The country is overstocked with Southern  coons who imagine they are Hawaiian musical geniuses.  The mulch system or application  of bulky vegetable material in orchard practice has in some districts a  number of important advantages  over tillage. In districts where the  rainfall is largely confined to the  winter aud spring period, mulching  may be the best practice. The mulch  system reduces labor in orchard  operations, a very important factor  now mat labor costs are very high.  The mulch conserves the soil fertility as well as the soil moisture. The  mulch system favors eariy ripening  of the wood in the autumn and does  not encourage excess of wood production. It favors the accumulation  of vegetable matter in the surface  layer of the soil. The turf created  prevents soil washing duridg the  the spring und winter period. The  mulch favors vermin, insect and  fungus troubles; these are disadvantages that detract considerably from  the gain in labor and soil saving  CUSTOxMS REECIPTS  R. R.

B. C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, AUGUST 15, 1019  who are now forced.eke out a miserable ex-'  istence by solicting charity, could'be trained  to some trade for which they are specially adapted, and afterwards be able to make a  comfortable livelihood.  f-  The election by the national convention of  Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King as leader of the  Liberal party will meet with general approbation from the rank and file of the party. While  no one has any desire to minimize one iota  the claims of Hon. W. S. Fielding, his chief  opponent, for the position, it must be admitted that Mr. King represents the younger and  more progressive element of the party, and  that his policies of government are more in  consonance with the present-day conceptions  of civilization and with the altered indusirial  conditions bequeathed us by the world war.  Mr. King has had considerable experience as  a parlimentarian, and he is said to be acceptable to Quebec. Under his progressive leadership, we expect to see the various elements  solidified and the party present a solid front  at. the next federal election.  The platfoin. adopted by the national convention of the Liberal party m regard to labor  contains many policies which have not yet  been tried in this country. The system of insurance against unemployment, sickness, de-  pendence in old age and other disability, in  eluding old-age pensions and widows' pensions,  is an advanced theory for Canada, but in England it has now been in practical operation for  several years, and from all accounts the law  is giving perfect satisfaction to a majority of  the people of the motherland. Having been  tested in that country, the Liberals of the  Dominion can not be accused of entertaining  ultra-socialistic theories by endorsing it. It  is a policy, in our opinion, which the governments of the entire world will be compelled to  adopt in the near future, and the Liberal  party of Canada, being one of the first political  organizations to advocate it, evinces a laudable  desire to keep in the vanguard of changing  public opinion in the direction of a more  humane civilization.  Crusades have been started at Ottawa, in  London and at Washington against the high  cost of living, and dire threats are daily being  made of the awful doom' that awaits the  profiteers. What the public would like to see  is, less threaqs, fewer dispatches about what  is intended to be done, and some real action  taken against the profiteers. Off with theii  heads!  In his reluctance to accept the Hungarian  kingship, Archduke Joseph exhibits very good  judgment. As head ornaments crowns have  gone out of style in Europe.  In a speech at Cape Town, Lieut. General  the Rt. Hon. Jan Christian Smuts, British  member of the league of nations commission,  said the three greatest impressions he had  gained during the peace conference were, first,  the immense preponderance of the British  empire in the world; second, the rising power  of qhe United States, which was the* onlj  great power to emerge from' the war un-  scatched and even with resources vastly in  creased; and third, the decline of Europe, not  only relatively but intrinsically owing to war  exhaustion.  The order making it compulsory to submit  to Ottawa for.its'approval all addresses to be  presented to the Prince of Wales in this country, does not appear to belong to that brand  of democracy for which our soldiers fought in  France.  The only criticism that we feel inclined to  offer against the plank endorsed by the convention is, that it. does go far enough. All  branches of insurance���������fire, life and accident  ���������should be operated by the government. If  this policy were adopted, and insurance in  these branches were made compulsory, it  would do much to do away with paupery from  our present-day civilization, if it would not  eliminate that curse altogether. The cost of  such insurance under government control  should be nominal, and the annual fees could  be collected in the form of a tax.  There is another planklet in the labor resolution ofthe platform that should nut, be passed  over unnoticed. This is the section referring  to the retraining of workmen who have been  maimed in industrial pursuits, by reason  of which they have become unfitted to resume their former occupations. The brutal  and inhuman practice in the past of turning  these cripples adrift on a cold and heartless  world should find no place in the new civilization to which we aspire. Some reforms may  be classed as visionary and impracticable;  but to carry out the idea embodied in this  section would be a mere act of justice. -Under the proposed plan many disabled workmen  The new leader of the Liberal party, Hon.  W. L. Mackenzie King, is an eloquent phrase  maker. His book on Industry and Humanity  "concludes with .these- words: "Is it'too much  to believe that, having witnessed humanity pass  through its Geqhsemane, having seen its agony  in its Garden of Fears, having beheld its cruci  fixion upon the cross of Militarism, Labor and  Capital will yet bring to a disconsolate and  broken-hearted world the one hope it is theirs  alone'to bring; and that, in the acceptance of  principles which hold deliverance from the  scourges that beset mankind, they will roll  back the stone from the door of the world's  sepulchre today, and give Humanity its promise of its resurrection to a more abundant  life."  Spuds will be Potatoes in this valley this  fall. From, present indications it looks as if  the farmers might be put to the expense of  buying safes to keep them in.  In the story of Arthur Ritchings, a police  constable of Cardiff, Wales, who enlisted in  the British ai my in 19J4, there is a fine picture of a modest and honorable gentleman.  After serving for three years in the ranks, he  was made second lieutenant, and then in rapid  succession captain, major and lieutenont-  colonel. He was wounded six times; was mentioned three times in dispatches; won the decoration of chevalier of the Legion of Honor,  the croix de guerre with palms and the military cross. But'when the war was over he returned to Cardiff and unassumingly took up  again his duties as constable. Every honest  constable, this gallant officer said, should  realize that he is under moral obligation to return to the Cardiff police force because during  his absence the taxpayers had contributed to  the support of his dependents.  We had intended to talk on municipal affairs this week,but we have only space enough  left to say that Grand Forks should go back  to the six-aldermen system of government. In  some future issue we will u'ive our reasons.
