Engineer is Enthusiastic  'Considerable progress was made  at the irrigation meeting in the  Empress theater Monday evening.  Mr. Kerman, who occupied the  chair, stated that the meeting  had been called for the purpose of  hearing Engineer Biker's report and  also to receive a report from the  committee which had recently interviewed the government. He read  a letter from our member, J. E. W.  Thompson, who stated that he was  doing everything he could to  advance the project, but the matter  was at present being held up at  Washington.* A telegram from Mr.  Thompson to the Hon. Mr. Pattullo,  minister of lands, was also read.  Mr. Thompson reminded the minister that the matter was urgent, and  urged the government use all the  speed possible in taking action.  Mr. Biker gave an excellent report of the survey he has made,  guing thoroughly into every detail  of the proposed scheme, The report  was accompanied with blue prints of  the dam and canal. The dam is to be  built six miles above Danville, and  the water will be conveyed in an  open concrete ditch with siphoons  where required, on the Great Northern right of way, 12 feet from the  center of the track to the center of  the ditch.   *  The estimated cost was ������327,326,  based on 83.50 per day for man labor and $S per day for man and  team. Tbe repayment of this sum  to the government would be stretched over a period of about forty years  at the rate of $6.74 per acre per  year. At the end of that time the  system would become the property  of the farmers.  Mr. Biker was very enthusiastic  over the proposed system, declaring that it was his unequivocal belief that the scheme was an economic feasibility,  About 5923 acres could be  brought under irrigation. This included a large portion of the town-  site.  The average price of land in the  valley at present was about $75 per  acre. Under irrigation it should  double in price.  Mr. Biker went thoroughly into  every phase of farming under irrigation and without water, and his  report was really a valuable educa  tion on mixed farming. The completeness of the data which he pre*  sented indicated that he has been a  very busy man lately. -  i  Mr Kerman emphasized the fact;  tbat, although it might be possible  for some farmers to install cheaper  individual plants, the community  would not derive the same benefit  from them as it would from a general gavity system. With the proposed |system   all  valley wauld more than treble in  value, and settlers would flock here  lo improve the land that now lies  idle.  W. B. Bishop, of the committee  which had gone to Victoria to interview the government, said he was  placed in a rather awkward position  when he reached Victoria, as the  other two members of the committee had failed to show up. Finally  Mr. Buckworth put in an appearance. As near as he could learn  from his interviews with the ministers, the money for the project was  available and the government was  willing to go ahead with the scheme  as soon as the farmers of the valley  produced tangible evidence that  they wanted the irrigation system.  If such evidence was forthcoming,  Mr. Pattullo, Mr Cleveland and  Mr. Thompson would visit the city  during the present month and go  over the ground. In his opinion a  point in the negotions had now been  reached where such evidence had to  be produced. He suggested that, a  resolution be adopted requesting the  above gentlemen fo visit the city,  and that the farmers sign a roll giving the number of acres for which  they wanted, water. His suggestion  was acted upon, and the roll was  signed by all the  ranchers  present.  LABOR'S BILL  American Railway Employees Formally Demand that Private Capital Be Retired From the  Railroads  The President  and the Treaty  Narrow Escape From  Bein^ Burned Out  Shortly, after the Great -Northern  train had passed on Tuesday, Mrs.  T. J. Lawrence noticed that a fire  had started near Neil Matheson's  house, south of the city, which is  unoccupied at present. She immediately telephoned to Mrs. R. W.  Hughes, and then started for the  scene herself. When the two ladies  reached the blaze it bad gained  considerable headway in the dry  grass and weeds, but by working  like Trojans they succeeded in saving the house, although the fire  came within ten feet of the building. Mr. Matbeson considers himself very lucky, and he also feels  very grateful to the ladies for their  heroic work.  Death of Miss Mudge  The death of Miss Maude Mudge,  aged 24 years, daughter of Mr. and  Mrs. Charles Mudge, occurred at 3  o'clock on Tuesday afternoon at the  Grand Forks hospital after a week's  illness, the cause of death being  peritonitis, or blood poisoning. Deceased was an estimable young lady,  very popular with a wide circle of  friends, and much sympaty is expressed for the bereaved family. She  is survived by her parents and two  brothers, both of whom have seen  considerable service at the front.  The.funeral was held at 2 o'clock  this afternaon, and it was largely  attended by the citizens. One of  deceased's brothers, Charles Alfred,  arrived in the city yesterday from  Nelson to be present at the last sid  rites of his sister.  The seed growers held a   meeting  Washington, Aug. 5.���������Organized  labor came out yesterday with the  unequivocal formal demand that  private capital be retired from the  railroads.  A tripartite control composed of  the public, the operating management and the employees is demanded instead. **  Addressed to the American public  and signed by the engineers, the  firemen, the conductors, and the  American Federation of Labor, a  formal statement was issued announcing this proposal, which will  be carried before congress Wednesday.  "It marks," says the statement,  "the step by*which organized labor  passes from demands for wage increases to demands that the system  of profits in industries be overhauled."  This sentence sums up in a few  words the proposal of which there  have been hints and indications, but  which is now laid before the country for the first time. Everywhere in  official Washington it is recognized  as the most serious acd far reaching  proposition the country will be called  on to faae.  Characterizing   the   proposal    as  "labor's bill," it is   put  forth   as   a  remedy for the high cost  of  living,  because tbe railroads are the key in  dustry of the nation.  It demands the-'genuine cooperation aud partnership based ou a  real community of interest and par  ticipation of control," of which  President Wilson spoke to congress,  and which the statement says has  been ignored by labor and the private owners of the railroads.  "We ask," it says, "that the railroads of the United States be vested  in the public; that tbose actually engaged iu conducting that industry,  outside of Wall street, but froiu the  railroad offices and yards and out on  the railroad lines, shall take charge  of this service for the public."  Briefly labor's plan demands:  That private capital be eliminated  from the railroads.  That the private owners receive  for them government bonds "with a  fixed interest return for every honest  dollar that they have invested."  That the tri-partite control be established incorporations which shall  lease the roads and in which the  public, the operating management  and  labor   shall     be     .represented  The speech in which President  Wilson laid the treaty of peace and  the covenant of the league of nations before the senate disappointed  many, says the "Youth's Companion,  because it explained none of the obscure provisions of the instrument  adopted at Paris. The president is  eager to get the treaty ratified and  the league set at work, and his address was in substance an appeal to  the senate to recognize the peace as  the best that the nations could agree  upon, and to assent to the league as  the only means of guaranteeing any  peace whatever in Europe.  Mr. Wilson's six months at Paris  have taught him much about the unhappy conditions that exist in Europe. Aggravated by war and by the  sufferings that war has aused, those  conditions���������the racial jealousies, the  hatreds and the economic rivalries���������  made an ideal peace impossible. If  Mr. Wilson dreamed of a peace that  all nations would accept with joy as  embodying exact justice and inspired wisdom, his first weeks at  Paris roused him from his dream.  The peace that was drawn was the  best that the assembled statesmen  could agree, upon. That it leaves  Germany sullen, Italy dissatisfied,  China resentful, is undeniable.  Moreover, the questions that are still  to be settled���������the affairs of Hungary, Poland, Bohemia, Russia, Fin  land and the Balkans���������will inevitably catise heartburnings and irritations that may even lead to continued warfare. It is simply impossible to decide them so as to satisfy  everyone; any attempt to decide  them with a pretense at fairness will  result in pleasing none of the nations coucerned.  In these discouraging circumstances there is, President Wilson  told the senate, only one path of  hope���������that which leads to the league  of nations. The covenant that has  been adopted is no more perfect  than the peace treaty; like our own  constitution, it represents the best  system on which the negotiating  states could agree. But if the league  fails, nothing can keep Europe from  falling again into a paroxysm of warfare; if the league fails, there will be  no iufluence strongh enough, the  argument runs, to maintain any  peace that could be negotiated.  But should tbe United States concern itself with the old world to the  extent of joining and oiganizingthat  is meant first of all to guarantee  peace and order to that hemisphare?  Mr. Wilson believes that our help is  essential; that if the United States  were indifferent or hostile the league  of nations could not possibly perform its functions successfully; that  we can not now desert the nations of  Europe with which we have been  associated     without     condemning  conceivu-  FLIES OVER CITI  Interested Gitizens. Get  First View of the Navigators of the j Air and  Their Graft  Capt. Hoy, of the Dominion  Hying Corps, who was scheduled  to arrive in Grand Forks last Monday morning by the airplane route  from Vernon, but who was delayed  owing to unfavorable weather conditions, flew over tbe city at 30:30  yesterday morning.and made a landing near the West Grand Forks post  office, where he remained for about  half an hour, replenished his gasoline supply and then proceeded on  his way to Calgary. A companion'  aviator, in another 'plane, kept on  his course without landing, having  performed that feat at Midway. The  birdmen are on a race from Vancouver to Calgary for a purse.  A number of people down town  swear���������or affirm���������that they saw  three airplanes in the sky, but the  West Euders are absolutely positive  tnat the third 'plane was a hawk.  Capt. Hoy.made, a .plain-landing  without performing any fancy evolutions. A large crowd ot citizens  gathered at the landing place and  inspected the machine and admired  the skill with which the birdman  handled it.  Capt. Hoy was reported to have  reached Cran brook at 5:30 last  evening, and he expected to land in  Calgary at about 8:30 o'clock. Mr.  Hall, the captain's companion aviator, had to make a landing at Canyon City for gasoline.  Mrs. Hall, wife of one of the bird-  men, is a guest at the Hotel Winnipeg, where she will remain until  Monday, when the aviators will pass  here on their way back to the coast.  They will probably make a landing  here then.       &  THE WEATHER  aqually. |  That the public, the operators and I , , .  tbe wage-earners share  equally   al-, them to fresh torture and  revenue in exchange  for  the   guar- j ������ly to destruction,  antee to private capital, by granting!

C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, AUGUST 8,  1.019  The Metric System  Thinking men and women will do well to  consider the striking arguments brought out  by the World Trade Club of San Francisco in  their campaign for adoption of the units of  the metric system of weights and measures.  They show a striking anomaly: That the  metric system was invented by a Briton, James  Watt, in 1783, and yet all civilized nations  have adopted it exclusively, excepting the  United States and Great Britain, including  Canada.  That the so-called "British system" of  weights and measures is of German origin���������a  relic of the old German TIanseatic trade league  ���������and yet Germany scrapt it in 1871 and  adopted the metric system, invented by a  Briton.  People of the-British empire and United  States may well ask themselves whether they  are not carrying conservatism too Par.  The metric system is no untried theory.  Its principle���������the principle of decimal computation���������has been used in the moneiary system of the United States since 1780. If the  United States had heeded ....Thomas Jefferson  tliu country would also hcivt; adopted this system of weights and measures based on decimals���������so simple a system that a child can  learn its main features in ten minutes. The  Dominion of Canada now uses decimal coinage. We know how well the decimal system  works with money. It will work equally well  with weights and measures.  The World Trade Club has started the ball  rolling. What we all need is to look the subject up.  dition of the sky on Monday made it advisable  for Capt Hoy to postpone the trip. The nonappearance of the captain and the 'plane was  as much of a loss to The Sun as it was a disappointment to the public. We had made  elaborate preparations Tor a gorgeous revival  of that grand mediaeval phrase, "Capt. Hoy  paid us a flying visit on Monday." It is5 doubtful if we can keep it ou ice until the captain  comes.  (T  It now appears to be a safe prediction that  within a reasonable time this valley will have  an efficient modern gravity irrigation system, at a very reasonable cost to the water  consumers. The value of such an enterprise  to the community can not be overestimated.  With an abundance of water, the soil can  easily be made to produce more than double  what it now yields, and crop failures from  drouth will be unknown. Farm land values  should treble, and all the unimproved land in  the valley will undoubtedly speedily be  brought under cultivation, thus increasing the  rural population, which in turn will naturally  have a tendency to accelerate the growth of  the city.  At present the farmers seem to be proceeding in the right manner to secure this system.  If they persevere in the same direction they  will succeed. Some impatience is expressed  in certain quarters at what they term undue  delav. They snould remember that it was only  recently that the ranchers made up their  minds that they wanted irrigation. An enterprise ofthe magnitude of the proposed scheme  can not be rushed through in a few weeks.  Tho project will have to be financed, a permanent survey made, plans perfected, and permission obtained irom the United States to  brim*- the water across the line. All these  details w'll consume time. *  In general the physical examination of men  who apply for licenses as civilian aviators in  Great Britain will not be as exacting as the  examination that army aviators must pass,but  the eyesight of successful candidates must be  virtually perfect. Not only will there be tests  for ordinary defects of vision, such as nearsightedness, far-sightedness and color ^blindness���������defects that obviously make a man unlit  to pilot an aeroplane; there will also be delicate tests to ascertain whether either of the  candidate's eyes has a ������tendency to magnify  distant objects, and thus to make them seem  nearer than they really are. Although that  defect ordinarily is so slight that the man  himself is '-unaware of it, it is liable to-lead to.  disaster when he is bringing an aeroplane to  land.  :^  Conserve Yoiir 8ig| lit  I'm mediate and careful attention should be given to the  first indication of eye trouble.

D.MORRISON  JEWELER AND OPTICIAN  GRAND FORKS, B.C.  ^  J>  Public sentiment is as fickle as a society  butterfly. In the last election the people of  this valley voted "dry." On Monday night the  farmers voted "wet." We are heartily in accord with the latter action, which means that  growing crops will be given a drink whenever  they need it. We can also endorse the former  action of the electors, with certain reservations. We do not believe in the public -bars,  but if a person is really in neod of liquor he  should have the privilege of procuring it without enriching doctors, druggists and 'transportation companies.  We have all read the story of the fly that  sat on the'hub of a swiftly moving wagon and  puffed itself up with pride because it imagined  it raised the dust created by the movement of  the team. This fly has some human prototypes  in nearly every town who have escaped the  fool swatter.  i   m  reduced to $5 an acre; second-class to  $2.50 an acre.  Pre-emption now confined to surveyed lands only.  Records -will -be granted covering only  land suitable for agricultural purposes  and which is non-timber land.  Partnership pre-emptions abolished,  but parties of not more than four may  arrange for adjacent pro-emptions  with joint residence, but each making  necessary improvements on respective  claims.  Pre-emptors must occupy claims for  five years and make improvements to  value of $10 per acre, including clearing arid cultivation of at least 5 acres,  before receiving Crown Grant.  Wliere pre-emptor in occupation not  less than 3 years, and has made pro-1  portionate improvements, he may, because of ill-health, or other cause, be'  granted intermediate certificate of improvement and transfer his claim.  Records without permanent residence may be issued, provided applicant makes improvements to extent of  $300 per annum and records same each  year. Failure to make improvements  or record same will operate as forfeiture. Title cannot be obtained in  less than 5 years, and improvements  of $10.00 per acre, including 5 acres  cleared and cultivated, and residence  of at least 2 years are required.  Pre-emptor holding Crown grant  may record another pre-emption, if he  requires land in conjunction with his  farm, without actual occupation, provided statutory improvements made  and residence maintained on Crown  granted land.  ������������������  Unsurveyed areas, not exceeding 20  acres, may be leased as homesites;  title to be obtained aftw fulfilling residential and improvement conditions.  For grazing and industrial purposes  areas exceeding G-IO acres may be  leased by one person or company.  Mill, factory or Industrial sites on  timber land not exceeding 40 acres  may be purchased; conditions include  payment of stumpage.  Natural hay meadows inaccessible  by existing roads may be purchased  conditional upon construction of a road  to them. Rebate of one-half of cost of  road, not exceeding half of purchase  price, iB made.  PRE-EMPTORS' FREE GRANTS  ACT.  The scope of this Act is enlarged to  include all persons joining and serving with His Majesty's Forces. The  time within which the heirs or devisees  of a deceased pre-emptor may apply  for title under this Act is extended  from for one year from the death of  such person, as formerly, until one  year after the conclusion of the present  war. This privilege is also made retroactive.  No fees relating to pre-emptions aro  due or payable by soldiers on preemptions recorded after June 26, 1918.  Taxes are remitted for five years.  Provision for return of moneys accrued, due and been paid since August  4, 1014, on account of payments, fees  or taxes on soldiers' pre-emptions.  Interest on agreements to purchase  town or city lots held by members of  Allied Forces, or dependents, acquired  direct or indirect, remitted from enlistment to March 31. 1920.

The cupidity of Germans of high rank would  be amusing were it not disgusting. The royal  princes are said to have plundered the wardrobes of Queen Elizabeth of Belgium in the  palace of Laeken, where they had often been  the guests of the king and queen; and when  the kaiser himself learned that a Prussian regiment had stolen from the king of Seibia an  especially beautiful silver-gilt dinner service  that the king had used when he entertained  foreign rulers, he demanded it as his personal  booty. In May, 1917, tlie kaiser's minister of  war declared officially that it was proper to  loot both private and public property in the  enemy's country.  The late Nat Goodwin, the famous actor,  had a $25,000 stock of liquor on hand when  he died. His heir is the most envied person  in America.

I am a police  officer in plain clothes, and have se-<  cured evidence against him."  "Ah, but it wern't pheasant you  'ad���������it was crow!"  Margaret E. Sangster. We were going down a narrow lane with all trees  on either side of it, she says in the  Christian Herald, when suddonly wa  turued another corner, and in the  dim light I could see that wc were  following a stream of water.  "What is that brook called,"!  asked idly, "or hasn't it any  name?"  The doctor turned squarely in her  seat and looked at me, ���������  "Brook!" she exclaimed. "That is  not a brook! That is the Marne!"  I leaned forward  breathlessly.  "Do you mean to tell me," I asked,  '"that   this   is   the   Marne?    Why, I  I thought���������'*  ���������  How could 1 explain that I had expected to find tho   Marne   wide   and  deep���������a great menacing sheet of dark  water?  "It's about thirty feet wide," said  the doctor. She might have been  reading my thoughts. "It runs along  at the foot of the hospital garden.  We all love the Marne. It's more  than a river to us."  I did not answer for a moment. I  sat very still and watched the silver  flicker of the stream that flowed so  calmly beside our path, and as I  watched I thought of the spirit of a  race that could make an impenetrable  barrier of such a-slight thing.  "Yes, its more than a river," I  echoed.  "It's a symbol !"  We drove the rest of the way to  the hospital in silence.

'TIE   8UJS.    GRAND    FORKS,    B. G.  JSews of the City  W. Tomlinson, the well known  mining engineer of New Denver,  who spent considerable time in  Franklin last year investigating the  platinum deposits of the camp for  the Dominion munitions board, returned on Saturday fiom a week'd  visit of inspection to the camp. He  was accompanied on his trip up the  river by A. B. Ritchie, of the .Consolidated company, Trail, and another mining man, both of whom  were anxious to obtain reliable data  ooncerning the camp. On Monday  Messrs. Tomlinson and Ritchie inspected a claim closer to the city.  Mr. Tomlinson stated thai the Consolidated company has expressed a  "desire for all the information it can  obtain about the mining properties  in this district. Mr. Tomlinson returned to New Denver Monday  night.  What Tillage Will  Do For an Orchard  Miss Jessie May Robertson, of  Toronto, and Charles Alfred Mudge,  son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Mudge,  were married in St Savour's church,  Nelson,-' on Tuesday, Rev. F. H.  Graham performing the ceremony.  The groom enlisted in Toronto at  the outbreak of thp war, and went  overseas in June, 1915, serving with  the :35th battalion. After their  honeymoon, Mr. and Mr,* Mudge  will make their home iu this city.  The success of an orchard project  in British Columbia demands that  thorough tillage be practised /until  such time a6 the trees are well established. Surface tillnge 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  tillage^operations aid in the disintegration of the soil particles that  carry the food elements. Tillage destroys many insects and pests and  fungus spores, thereby reducing  greatly the insect and fungus injury.;;    .   ��������� -  In the arid sections, tillage de~  stroys the soil fibre and reduces the  vegetable matter or humus making  agent.,;With the fibre or vegetable  matter gonp, the soil becomes more  difficult to till and poorer in nitrogen.  Tillage practice has a big balance  in its favor, and is the practice of  the most successful orchardist.  ���������'Beggiri' your pardon, sir,'' flaltered  the woman; "but you see, sir, the pig  died."  "Well, do you want- me to go to  the funeral, send a wreath, or what,  woman?" was the reply.      ������������������,������������������������������������'  "No, sii'���������indeed no!" was the reply. "But we're poor folks, sir, and  we thought that, bein' the biggest pig  in the neighborhood, you'd give us a  little'elp."  The major's reply was distinctly  pungent.  r  ~\  What Mulching Will  Do ior an Orchard  Jeff Davis returned on Wednes������  day from a three weeks' vacation  trip to Toronto and other eastern  points.  M. H Burns returned from Spo  kane on Saturday. He brought  back a new Studebaker car with him  for the Model li'/ery. He has about  decided to present hi������ old car to the  sporting editor of The Sun as a  "birthday gift.'"'-  Pie. D McDonald, who enlisted  i'i this city, returned from ovirrs.'as  this week, having obtained his release faom the army at Vancouver.  He is visiting at the home of Mr.  and Mrs. P. Barker.  Miss Jean Ems, of Vancouver, is  spending her vacation in this city at  the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. J,  Cook.  The mulch system or application  of bulky vegetable material in orchard practice has in some districts a  number of important advantages  over ullage. 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 io orchard  operations, a very important factor  now that'labor costs are very high.  The mulch conserves the soil fertility, as well as the soil moisture. The  -mulch-system favors -early 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.  D. Matheson, foreman at the  Rock Candy, was in the city on  Saturday.  Frank Larama left on Saturday  for a business trip to Vancouver.  T. Symes, who inspects the fruit  sent out from this city every fall for  the Dominion "government, arrived  in the city on Saturday from Van-  e< uver.  W. M. Archibald, of the Consolidated company at Trail, inspected  the Rock Candy mine and the con-  cenrator at Lynch Creek on Friday.

E. Sinclair, for  merly the surveyor-general of logs and  lumber, and his assistant, A. D-Cook,  took place, says the Minneapolis  Journal, in an office in Mineapolis not  long ago. Mr. Cook was running his  finger down the line of a page of hieroglyphics in an old leather bound  ledger. Mr. Sinclair was ready to  write down what Mr Cook said. Mr.  Cook ran his finger along the page.  At last he spoke.  "Tee crowfoot  girdle   treetop  turtle," he said.  "Tee   crowfoot  girdle   treetop tufr.  tie," Mr, Sinclair called back.  "Scalp thirty reel blaze," Mr. Cook  said.  "Scalp thirty reel blaze," repeated  Mr. Sinclair.  "Flying diamond Check," and with  that the conversation ended.  Some "sinkers"���������logs that had  long lain in the bottom of the river���������  had been dragged to light and were  to be identified by the bark marks and  the stamp on the end. Some question  about the identification had arisen,  and the surveyor general had be u  asked to verify it. Every mark that  ever was put on a registered log is on  record in his office.  There is a dead language in Minnesota, says the Journal, that no Greek  or Latin scholar, no student of Sanskrit or Chinese, can read it. It was  once in use here, but now there are  oniy living men who know it. Six-  thousand markings are in a set of  books that go back to pioneer days.  Here are recorded all the log marks  that ever were registered, and that  represent the millions of feet of lumber that came out of the great pine  forests of the North Star State.
