C, FRIDAY, AUGUST 23, 1918  $1.00 PER YEAR  Norma Van Dies Soon After Being  Truck by  HP  1 rain  As the result of a bad railway  accident in the western part of the  city on Monday morning, Norma  Van, aged two years", was killed almost instantly, and -Nellie Young,  aged ten years, was seriously injured. The accident occurred on  the high embankment near the Kettle river bridge as the Great Northern passenger train was pulling out  for Spokane,shortly after 11 o'clock.  The engineer, it is said, was busy  with other work, and he did not Bee  the little girls until they were struck  by the locomotive. Both were  thrown off the track and down the  embankment. The skull of the Van  girl was fractured, and she died  a few minutes after being picked up.  Nellie, although thrown quite a distance by the eugine, escaped without any outward cuts or bruises,  but the shock rendered her unconscious, in which condition she ��������� re  mained for several days after being  taken to the hospital, evidently hav-  i g sustained severe internal injuries  She regained consciousness on Wednesday afternoon, when she spoke  'or the fist time since <hv accident.  At present her condition is improving, and it is believe! that she is  out of danger."  The train was >topped as soon as  the engineer became aware that an  accident had occurred, The two vic-  timg'were placed on board and the  train was backed up to the station,  from where they were hurriedly  conveyed to the Grand Forks hospital.  The Van child was a relative of  the Young family, and was being  raised at their home. The remains  of the young victim of the' accident  were buried at 2 o'clock on Tuesday  -afternoon.  It is said that the Van baby had  crawled up the embankment and  was playing on the track as the train  approached. Her danger was seen  by the Young girl, who attempted  to save her companion, but was also  caught by the engine.  Coroner Kingston on Tuesday  summoned a jury composed of Geo.  Clark, D. McCallum, Roy Curran,  Geo. Manson, N. Taylor and  G.   J3.  tables in tbe public dining room   of  the Mullins house  We had a lot of. fun with Superintendent Jim Keegan that morning  while we awaited the arrival of these  notable guests, says Mr. McGroarty.  Keegan wanted to escape and leave  the honors to his foreman. He was  quite sure he wouldn't know what  to say to a crown prince.  But it was all right when the  prince came. The way be smiled,  boyishly and friendly, and the way  he shook bands made Keegan feel  in a minute as if he had known him  for years.  "Are you going to let him down  with a slack cable the way you  dropped me tbe first time I went  down this mine?" I asked Keegan.  "On, no," replied Jim. ''This  young fellow is valuable, and it  won't do to take'chances. There's  a big job waiting for him. He will  be king some day, and he's going to  be a mighty good king, too."  . . A day in that honeycombed laby:  rinth of caverns, under the scarred  and smoke soddened surface of the  Butte hill, was an experience to be  remembered by a prince or any  other man.  When at last we again saw day  light, we bad walked more- than  fourteen miles underground and had  worked up amazing appetites. It was  just dinner time at the Mullins  house���������the great brick barracks  where three hundred .and fifty of  Marcus Daly's men ate and Blept.  We went first into tbe wash room,  where there was a long trough with  running water, hot-and coid. The'  prince bared his strong arms, took  off his wilted collar, bared his chest,  and splashed himself to his heart's  content.  The Mullins house had ''no ser-,  vice," but the food was clean and  wholesome and fit for strong men.  The miners had their own vernacular concerning food. Meat and potatoes were "low grade," and pie  was "high grade."  The prince scored a triumph when  a little red-headed miner down tbe  table called across to the royal guest:  "Hey, young feller, pass'-:me over  some of that high grade, will you?"  and the prince shot the pie at him  without the slightest fumble.  It was a democratic crowd, but  there was not a more democratic  human being among them than the  heir to the throne of Belgium. To  the black-eyed girl, who carried in  his meal to him, he gave back smile  for smile, and he would doubtless  take it as a compliment if he knew  that the same girl afterwards took  the pains to ask:  "Who was that good looking fellow you had with you here the other  HMD FORKS BO!  KfLLEI  James McDougall Makes  Supreme  Sacrifice on  Field ol Honor  A telegram was received in the  city by relatives on Wednesday say-'  ing that James McDougall, of this  city, who went overseas about two  and a half year������ ago, bad been killed  in action in France.  Mr. McDougall was about thirty  years of age. He was a native British Columbian, having been raised  in Nelson and in this city. His aged  mother and three brothers, besides  many relatives, now live in Grand  Forks, having resided here for tbe  past sixteen or seventeen years. Another brother lives in Nelson.  For a .number of years prior to  enlisting deceased followed the oc  cupation of hotel clerk in this city  and in Greenwood. Pie was of a  happy disposition, and had a wide  circle of friends, all of whom had  hopes of seeing him marching home  with the victors after the war.  BIG GRAIN GROP  IN MANITOBA  Winnipeg,   Aug.    20���������Manitaba  will harvest 145,000,000 ���������bushels'- oi  grain this year.    This official   state  merit    was issued    by J. H   Evans,  deputy minister of agriculture, after  a conference yesterday with   G.   R.  Bathou. The expected yield consists  of 45,000,000 bushels of  wheat   (],-  000,000 more than last   year),    70,  000,000 bushels oats and 30,000,000  bushels of .barley.  than to take a soldier and make a  citizen ol him. When you take a  sold er you assume parental control  of him; you assume responsibility  for his upkeep and living. He does  uot have to worrv about his sustenance.: That problem is up to the  power which received or conscripted  him., When .you make a civilian of  a soldier you absolve yourself of all  parental care���������in an indifferent  country'. You merely turn him loose  His subsistence is his problem.  That is. the very, thing which this  nation, having conscripted its men,  can not afford to do. It is apparent  how many violent changes war has  made. Peace will make changes just  as violent in returning to normal.  For the protection of the very best  people who live in the United States  and work for it the nation must  now, while there is time, consider  what to do with these men and  women whose lives have been  changed by war. We must make it  possible for them to return to peace.  The only way we can make it possible is by anticipating the certain  conditions of the future and by providing against them.

The jury viewed the remains of the Van girl, visited'the  scene of the accident, and listened  to the details of the accident by witnesses until a late hour, when an adjournment was taken until such a  time as the Young girl is able to  give her testimony.

John Whiteside, special commis  sioner sent by tbe Canadian Northern railway to investigate crop conditions in the west, has telegraphed  the head office in Toronto that the  crops in Manitoba seem to have  suffered the least of the three prairie  provinces from the vagaries of climate. While in the early weeks  high hot winds swept large areas  and damaged 7 per cent of the entire  seeded acreage, it is declared in government offices in Toronto that the  acreage has not been lost by any  means, and to set against this there  was a considerable increased acreage  seeded.

He is always ready to entertain his  friends with a humorous chapter or  so from his fund of reminiscences  and frequently delights his audiences with them when called upon  before the curtain Here is some-  tping decidediy Kendallesque that  he told one evening recently:  "IWas on my way to Chicago  from Baltimore, recently, in a Pul -  man sleeping car���������oh, yes, they al  low us to ride in Pullmans now.  After a good night's rest I got out  of my berth early in the morning  ������nd made my way to the washroom,  lou know the little washroom,  about so big, at the end of tbe car.  Well, I pushed my way in with  some other men and finally took my  turn at one of the washbasins.  "Just as I got my face soaped, up  good and well the train shot round  a curve and into a tunnel, where it  was dark, of course. When the  train struck the curve the jar caused  my face to slip out of my hands  and it landed in the hands of the  man who was bending over washing  away, just alongside of me. He kept  on washing busily, as if nothing had  happened.  " 'Hold on, friend,' I said, 'that's  my face you have in your bands.'  " 'Is that soV hetemarked. 'Well,  what's become of mine?'  "'Guess I've got it here,' said a  man on the other side of him. "I  haven't said a word so far, but this  face I am washing has been talking  right along.'"  Of minerals to the value of $177,-  201,534 produced in Canada during  1917, a part representing $39,969,-  962 was mined in British Columbia,  according to the figures given out in  the report just issued by the department of mines. Ontario was the  largest mineral producer with $S0,-  461,323 to its credit, and Nova  Scotia was next to British Columbia  with $20,042,262 produced in minerals.  The report shows that for the year  63,642,550 pounns of copper were  produced in this province and 39,-  157,701 pounds of lead. There were  3,392,782 pounds of silver produced  during the same period, and 219,633  ounces of gold. The figures show  slight recessions over the previous  year, with the exception of copper,  when only 56,692,988 pounds were  produced in that year.  The total value of minerals produced in 1915 was only $28,689,425  as compared with S39,969;962 for  1916  PIONEER OF DISTRICT  DIES SUDDENLY  John Cox, aged 68, was found  dead iu his bed at his home, a short  distance east of the city, by Provincial Constable George Stanfieid  on Sunday lust. Mr. Stanfieid went  to the deceased's ranch in response to  information supplied by neighbors  to the effect that Mr. Cox had not  been seen around his home for some  lime. Coroner Kingston decided  that death was due to natural causes  and that an inquest, would be unnecessary. The funeral was held on  Tuesday.  Mr. Cox came to British Columbia thirty-eight years ago, aud has  been a resident of this district for  thirteen or fourteen years.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 23, 1918-  The Sun has no means of forecasting the  nature of the bylaw to reconstruct the city  government which is to be brought down  at the meeting of the council next Monday  night, and therefore we are unable to either  praise or condemn the proposed changes. A  feeling appears to exist among the citizens,  however, that if any radical changes are contemplated, the ratepayers should be given an  opportunity to express their approval or disapproval of them before they are enacted into  law, even if this can be done in a legal manner without consulting them.  Not all the ships that are sunk by German  submarines are permanent lost to the allied  cause. According to recent reports from London, four hundred and seven vessels have been  raised and salvaged since January, 1915. Most  Of them, of course, are vessels that had been  sunk in the North Sea, the channel or the  Irish Sea, where over large areas the water is  shallow.  f=  ' The (Janada food board has asked private  householders of Canada still further to restrict  their consumption of sugar for personal use to  one and one-half pounds per month per person and to use a greater proportion of brown  stiy-ar. The board also warns against-hoarding as unfair, unnecessary and contrary to  law. The Cuban crop of sugar has fallen  short by 300,000 tons of the previous estimates; the American sugar beet crop has also  proved disappointing, as has the Louisiana  cane crop. The recent German drive was a  further cause of sugar shortage., as a large beet  acreage was overrun and many sugar factories  destroyed. Thousands of tons of sugar have  been sunk by submarines, includinga 13,000  ton cargo recently lost off* the Atlantic coast.  Conservation of sugar is imperative. There is  sugar in Canado for everybody in moderation,  but none for extravagant use, for wasteful use  or for illegal hoarding.  . F. C. Wade, of Vancouver, has been appointed agent-general to London from British  Columbia. The ultra-Conservative papers of  the province appear to be piqued because the  post was not given to a Tory. They should remember that when the Conservative party  ruled British Columbia with an extreme partisan hand it was almost useless for a Liberal  laborer to apply for a job on the public roads.

The lesson that has been most forcibly  taught the people by the present war is, perhaps, the fact that nothing except labor is of  much consequence in this world. Without labor, wealth would starve to death, while labor  without wealth could still manage to  live and be happy. If the war lasts four years  longer, the truth of this statement will undoubtedly become more clearly apparent than  it is today. '  Early in July, even before the immense  winter wheat crop had been completely harvested, Kansas was busy with plans for an  equal large acreage this fall.

When Herbert Hoover ad dressed.'the consumers' council recently at the offices of the  British ministry of food in London, England,  he. pointed out that competition among the  allied countries in.purchasing food supplies on  this continent had been arrested. Such competition was responsible in no small measure  for the rapid advance of food prices in Canada  and the United States, and. prices would certainly have gone much higher had it not been  for the combined action of the British miuis-  trp of food, the United States food administration and the Canada food board in; grappling with the problem and so organizing the  purchasing of food snpplies for overseas as to  eliminate competition among the allied buyers. In bringing about such organization,  the Canada food board had an important part.  But while there no longer is unrestrained  competition in purchases of food supplies for  overseas, the cost of production of agricultural  produce of all kinds is very high, and this accounts, in large measure at least, for the high  prices which have been rendered necessary in  order to maintain and to increase production  under adverse war conditions. Tlie most important question of all is that of stimulating  production, and any possibility of reduction of  supplies must not be entertained, because of  the huge requirements overseas, the dependence of the allies upon North America for so  large a proportion of their food, and the military and economic importance of building up  large reserves, both here and abroad.  The fact that the restrictions on the use of  bacon and other pork products have been removed for the time being does not mean that  food economies are no longer necessary. The  facts are that there is not an ounceof food too  much in the world and that every man, woman  and child is under the sternest necessity of  saving whatever he or she can of those foods  most needed oversea. Any temporary relaxation of the restrictions, such as in the  case of  pork, must not be construed as notice to the' As Mr. Hoover said, discontent over prices  public that extravagance in any food is again ! is a trifle compared with discontent over hun-  endtirable.

They forget that a  conversational tone is all that is needed  It is the same with the long distance  telephone.

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 pre-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  and cultivation of at least 5 acres, before receiving Crown Grant.  Where pre-emptor in occupation not  less than 3 years, and has made proportionate 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 on these claims in  less than 5 years, with improvements of  ?10 per acre, including 5 acres cleared  and cultivated, and residence of at  least 2 years.  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 after fulfilling residential and improvement conditions.  For grazing and industrial purposes,  areas exceeding 640 acres may be leased  by one person or company.  PRE-EMPTORS* FREE GRANTS ACT.

Tho time  within which the heirs or devisees of a  deceased pre-emptor may apply for  title under this Act is extended from  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.  TOWNSITE PROPERTY ALLOTMENT  ACT.  Provision is made for the grant to  persons holding uncompleted Agreements to Purchase from the Crown of  such proportion of the land, If divisible,  as the payments already made will  cover in proportion to the sale price of  the whole parcel. Two or more persons  holding such Agreements may group  their interests and apply for a proportionate allotment jointly. If it is not  considered advisable to divide the land  covered by an application for a proportionate allotment, an allotment of land  of equal value selected from available  Crown lands in the locality may be  made. These allotments are conditional  upon payment of all taxes due the  Crown or to any municipality. The  rights of persons to whom the purchaser from the Crown has agreed to  sell are also protected. The decision of  the Minister of Lands in respect to the  adjustment of a proportionate allotment  is final. The time for making application for those allotments is limited to  the 1st day of May, 1919. Any application made after this date will not bo  considered. These allotments apply to  town lots and lands of tho Crown sold  at public auction.  For information apply to any Provincial  Government Agent or  to  G. R.

You simply say to the drug store  man, "Give me.a quarter of an ounce  of freezone." This will cost very little  but is sufficient to remove every hard  or soft corn from one's feet.  A few. drops of this new ether compound applied directly upon a tender,  aching corn should relieve the soreness instantly, and soon the entire corn,  root and all, dries up and can be lifted  out with the fingers.  This new way to rid one's feet of  corns was introduced by a Cincinnati  man, who says that, while freezone is  sticky, it dries in a moment, and simply shrivelB up the corn without inflaming or even irritating the surrounding tissue or skin.  r.
