Harkness,  McArdle, McCallum,' Schnitter and  Webster were present'at the'regular  meeting of the city council 'on Monday evening.     -  S. T. Hull svas present and ad-  pressed the council. He said .that  for the past two years he had attempted to get a tax sale deed  registered for Peter A. Z. Pare,J>ut  had failed to do so. Now the registrar demanded an additional fee of  $10, which his client refused to pay,  claiming that the city should furnish a valid deed for registration.  Aid. McCallum was of tbe opinion  that it was tbeduty of the vendor  to furnish the purchaser with a'deed  that could be registered at the usual  registration fee. Mayor Acres did  not like theidea of the city paying  the additional 810 fee for the registration of Mr. Fare's deed, as he  thought, in view of the forthcoming  tax sale, the action might set a "precedent ari'cf inv-olve~thVcity"in many  costly difficulties. Final action in  the matter was deferred for two  weeks.  A communication from Kam-  loops asked the council to endorse a  resolution asking the Ottawa government for federal aid in the development of the iron and steel industry . of British Columbia. The  request was complied with.  A letter from L. A.

The chairman of the water and  light committee reported that a reported that a request had been  made for a street light at the steps  on the sidewalk from Winnipeg  avenue to the English church, lle-  feried to the water and light com  mil tee, with power to act.  RUSSIA WILL MAINTAIN DE MOOR ACT  Moscow, August 27.'��������� Russia will  maintain democracy at all costs.  She intends to use the weapons of  the old regime against those wishing that the old., autocracy should  overthrow the'republic."  This declaration of Premier Ker-  enskv was of outstanding importance at the all-Russia conference.  He ins s.ted ^.the new nation was  passing'through a period of mortal  danger.-1 He warned enemies within that the government henceforth  would' be implacable in pursuing  and crushing with blood and iron  all attempts against the people's  power. .  Kerensky's speech was" wildly  cheered.. The issue is tightly drawn  between free-democracy as against  conservative reactionarism.

For instance, we  are how receiving B.C. Transpareuts  and Duchess and Wenatchee  Wealthy.  These Wealthies are slightly on  the green side and their quality is  partially lost. When our Wealthies  come on they should have the market for a time, even although the  Mcintosh.-may be ready.- to roll.  This could allow the Wealthies to  be cleaned up and then the popular  Mac could be given his innings, followed by Jonathan.  Storage facilities for winter are  greatly needed in the Okanagan  valley, so that we may retain those  choice.late varieties where they are  grown' until their season arrives.  It is. well known to growers and  shippers who have tested it that apples keep best at growing point, in  storage. So far in the high-priced  teason Washington has a complete  monopoly of th*e market. This is  nothing new, but the action taken  would be new and very paofitable  as well.  PROTESTS AGAINST  TOE SURTAX  Farmers Say They Are N'ot  Financially Able to Bear  the Extra,Burden  Practically every rancher in the  valley attended the meeting in the  board of" trade rooms Saturday  night, called forthe purpose of pro  testing to Victoria against the imposition of the surtax.  C. C. Heaven acted as chairman,  and.after a general discussion of the  subject, the following resolution,  which was unanimously adopted,  was offered by C. A. S. Atwood and  Tom Powers:  "That we, the fruit growers of  Grand Forks valley and section,  make a vigorous protest to the government against the surtax; first, on  the grounds of its- partiality, and  secondly, that we are not financially  able to bear this additional burden."      -  . C. A. S. Atwood, Jamos B,ooke  and A. Schnitter were appointed a  committee to draft a resolution of  protest, and to forward it to Vic  toria. The committee met Monday  evening and performed its work. o  Museum of War Relics  Paris now boasts'of a museum  unlike any other in the world. This  is the "Musee de Guerre," the war  museum of M. Henri Leblanc, and  contains the most complete collection of documents related to the war  constituted anywhere.  The idea ofjurcning a war collection first occurred to M. Leblanc on  the   last   day of July, 1914, before  Victoria.���������Following ihe lead of  farmers of Cowicban, residents of  Pender island at a public meeting  formally protested against the action  of the provincial government in imposing the surtax on agricultural  property. They pledged themselves  to refuse to pay the extra tax assessed against them. The resolu  tion, which was carried unanimously, reads as follows:  "That this meeting, while recognizing that during the war it is our  special duty to avoid internal dis-  sention, protests against the surtax  on farm property as being very injudicious and very unfair to a class  that -needs every encouragement  that our government can extend.  "The farmers of tbe gulf islands,  in common with those of Vancouver  island and other parts of tbe coast  districts, are Buffering from the effects of the war in various economic  ways. The high cost of all supplies  and of grain feed, which is a basic  factor in our farming, has rendered  farming unprofitable, and we consider the present a most unfortunate  TO LEVY AMUSEMENT  TAX IN SEPTEMBER  . Probably by the middle of next  month the provincial government  will bring inco effect the amusement  tax, provision for which was made  at the session of the legislature held  early this year, and which will apply to all amusement places in the  province, to' be levied by a tax upon  all tickets sold.  The details of the system by which  the tax will be collected have been  under consideration for some time,  and this week a conference will be  held by Hon. John Hart, minister  of finance, and L. Gordon, chief  moving picture censor, who has been  working out a method whereby the  tax will be made effective with the  least trouble to the theater proprietors and the patrons of the amusement places.  The minister has been conferring  with theater representatives recently, and, while there is nothing yet  forthcoming as to the plan to be  adopted, it is stated that arrangements are now practically completed to make effective the new  tax. It was the expectation when  the act providing for the tax ^vas  passed that the receipts would probably briug in $150,000 a year at  least.

Granby Consolidated has some big  plans for expansion callibg for substantial expenditures, which will  probably . all be financed through  earnings, says a late BoBton report.  .During the last fiscal year ended  June 30, the company spent. approximately $1,000,000 for improvements. In the current fiscal period  just started probably a larger  amount will be spent in carrying to  fruition plans now under consideration.  July "costs of production were  round 10������ cents a pofcnd, indicating  an advance of more than a cent a  pound over^the June average, but  this was due to the fact that the  Granby includes in its cost sheets  new construction and improvement  charges, which were heavier than  the previous month.  The company has worked itself  into an enviable cash position without a dollar of debt either in advances against copper or loans, c:nd  has about $4,200,000 in cash and  copper to its credit, whereas about  a year ago it had about $1,400,000.  owing against advances received  against its copper. The bonded  debt has been reduced to around  ������2,000,000, agaiust the original  issue of 83,500,000. This means a  steady reduction in fixed charges.  Granby has acquired high grade  coal properties, one seam of which  shows 20,000,000 tons of high grade  coking coal. Engineers have teft  for this new property to superintend  the new by products plant to be  built, and which it is planned shall  supply all the company's coking  needs at a low cost, leaving a substantial tonnage of this material for  sale in the open market.  Between 81,250,000 and $1,500,-  000 will be spent in developing and  bringing to a productive stage tbe  new coal and coke property, all of  which will be taken from earnings,  and will not interfere in any way  with the-maintenance of tbe present  10 per cent dividend rate. "  All mining propertias which  Granby owns have been contributing liberally to smelters of the company. The mine about 50 miles  from Anyox ships about 1500 tons  of high grade ore monthly; this product carries about 88 pounds of copper to the ton ot ore.

It is not anticipated that the married volunteers will require much training  to  fight the men.  FRIDAY, AUGUST 31, 1917  The belligerency of the Vancouver  women  contrasts  brilliantly  with  the  patriotism of  those robust warriors  who, at -the  outbreak  of the war,  ordered   officers'  uniforms, and  took  much  pride in  appearing  in public in  them  on  every possible occasion, and  then,  when they were asked  to  volunteer for the  front, carefully stored them away, presumably  to hand them down, unsoiled, as heirlooms, to  their children  as evidence of the gallant part  they played in the great war.    But the  Vancouver women, if we can believe a report from  that city, have sterner staying qualities. They  actually want to fight the kaiser.    More than  that,   they are getting  ready  to take  their  places  ou  the  battlefront  like  the Russian  Legion   of Death.    The  women met  in the  Vancouver labor  temple Monday to discuss  details  incident to the completion of the organization, and on Tuesday  they telegraphed  Ottawa  offering   their   services   as   soldier.  Three   cheers   and   a   tiger   for  the  ladies  battalion.  r  ^  The Military Service Act was signed by the  governor-general on. Tuesday evening, and it  is now a law. Eastern newspapers which  should , be in close touch with the trend of  events at Ottawa, are emphatic in their assertion that the act will be put into operation at  once. The parliamentary proceedings during  the past two days confirm this view.  The people in general will support the immediate enforcement of the selective draft.  The political atmosphere at Ottawa should  clear in the course of a week or two. At  present it is decidedly murky, and almost anything is liable to happen at any moment. At  Victoria there  seems to  be a. healthy storm  brewing over the surtax.  "Peace rests upon the decision of the German people, and riot upon their ruler, with a  peace door swung wide. But the Teutons  must come through without the kaiser as a  leader, else they must be pounded to pieces  until sheer steel convinces that the kaiser's  militaristic program is impossible." This epitomises President Wilson's answer to the  pope's peace proffer. The note is tempered  with a direct offer to the German people to  secure peace by spurning kaiserism with its  horrors and insincerity. Allied airplanes will  scatter the note through the German trenches.  The President sees the throne of the Hohen-  zollern beginning to crumble. Evidences of  the weakening of the Kaiser's hold, increasing  boldness among the leaders of the democratic  faction and signs of anxiety on account of the  growing moral forces opposing him, reveal  that the Kaiser is weaker now than since the  war started. The President rejected the Pope's  peace proposals. In a note despatched Monday night and made public in Washington  Tuesday night, the President says that while  every heart not blinded and hardened by the  terrible Avar, must be touched by the moving  appeal of His Holiness, it would be folly to  take the path of peace he points out if it does  notinfact lead���������to the goal he proposes. To deal  with such a power as the present rulers of  rulers of Germany upon the Pope's plan, declares the President, would involve a recuperation of the strength and renew the world dominion of that power, now balked but not defeated, after sweeping a continent with the  blood of innocent women and children, as well  as of soldiers. "Permanent peace must be  based upon the faith of all the peoples and  upon justice and fairness and the common  rights of mankind," he adds, and "we can not  take the word of the present rulers of Germany as a guarantee of anything that is to endure unless explicitly supported by such conclusive evidence of the will and purpose of  the German people themselves as the other  peoples of the world would be justified in accepting."  The loyal support of Hawaii to the American colors is worthy of special notice. Although its population is only about 240,000,  and is of remarkably mixed races and blood,  it had furnished up to the first of July 4397  volunteers for militarv service. .Few states  did as well as that.

Tlie  Canadian Pacific railway's gross receipts and  net profits for the current year to date are  the largest ever reported by the company.  The wheel has come to full circle. Had  former governments of British Columbia been  less lavish in squandering the people's money,  there would not now be any necessity of #the  farmers complaining of the surtax. The present  government heed the lesson. It is time  that the province was governed from Victoria,  and not by costly commissions. The commission form of government is a farce and a  swindle.

It is  considered certain that the allies  will reject peace terms now. President Wilson will offer 'a declaration  of vital principals other than those  outlined in the pope's peace demands.  "There are places in Canada where  bread is selling at 2i cents per  pound," says the Canadian food  controller. "There are other places  where it is selling at 12 and 14  cents, and they have oo possible excuse except that some one is in control of the markets and they dictate  what they like."  President Wilson has declared  that the first draft of 687,000 citizen soldiers would not include any  heads of families. The president  wrote to Secretary Baker stating  that the only exception to this rule  should be in the case of a drafted  man, seeking exemption, who has  already a sufficient income to supply the needs of those dependent  upon him.  President Wilson's message to the  Russian conference at Moscow electrified the assembly. He promised  that the United States would aid  with all her moral and material  power, which declaration was  greeted with thunderous cheers.  The entire statement produced a  deep impression.  'A Washington dispatch of the  28th says that President Wilson will  fix tbe price of copper, probably  around 20 cents per pound, within  the week. Eugene Myer, New York  banker, is slated to be copper director.  The United States and her allies  are preparing another winter campaign and a great spring drive,  which is intended to turn the scale,'  finally.

Probably some frivolous remark  of mine obtained me this privilege,for  in the middle of the meal Spencer,  w'ith a fixed glance at me, pressed the  spring that elosed the hole of each  ear.- After luncheon my host and I  sat chatting in the garden, when  there came an invitation from Spencer  to us^o take a drive with him in his  rubber tired carriage, the message  adding "that we were not to talk."  When we were returning from  Spencer's funeral the late Sir Michael  Foster told we the following story:'  Spencer detested cushions, and the  trouble was to find a seat that was  hard in the seat and yet comfortable.  So, tfs a last resource, he had a seat  covered with some inches of soft plaster of Paris, and sitting on that' made  an impression from which a wooden  seat of an exactly fitting pattern" was  cut.  Against a certain undeniable fussi"  ness there should be set the fact that  Spencer had a soft place in a heart  that seemed adament, and I know of  spontaneous acts of. kindness and of  offers of help to the troubled and bereaved that redeemed much unlovely  behavior.  Black-Cat Luck  A certvin resident in a country  suburb makes a point of keeping open  the doors and windows of his house.  As he sat in one of his breezy rooms  the other evening, waiting for dinner,  his wife came in from the kitchen.  "We've just had a visit from a  black cat," she said. '  "Ah," he replied, "that's good.  Black,.cats are lucky, you know."  "Yes," answered his wife, who dislikes cats, "this one was certainly  lucky. It has run off with the cod  steak   I   was  just going to cook for  you." ________  You can not reach The Sun's  numerous readers except through  the" columns of The Sun.

This will take place on  the lawn at 10 o'clock, and the  public are cordially invited.

Beginners who are six years  old, or nearly so, will be received  at the public school till September  17th.    Harold Cornish, aged 15, years,  an American who lived with his  stepfather, J. Coleman, just across  the line at Deep creek, was killed by  a falling tree last Saturday while  engaged in fighting fire in that district.

Good news spreads rapidly and druggists here are kept busy dispensing  freezone, the ether discovery of a Cincinnati man, which is* said to loosen  any corn so it lifts out with the fingers.  Ask at any pharmacy for a quarter  ounce of freezone, which will coat very  little, 'but is said to be sufficient to rid  one's feet of every hard or soft corn or  . callus.  You apply just a few drops on the  tender, aching corn and instantly' the  soreness ia relieved, and soon tti"e corn  is so snriveled that-it lifts out without pain. B It is a sticky substance  which dries when applied and never  inflames or even irritates the adjoining tissue.

There has just beer-  issued a map ' of tlie European war,  area that clearly shows every point of  interest that has been mentioned in  dispaches since the Canadian forces  first landed in France. ' It has been  made especially for the great Canadi  an weekly, the Family Herald and  Weekly Star of Montreal, and is a  credit indeed to Candian enterprise.  It is a marvel of detail and yet not.  crowded. It is in four colors and  about -2^-x3^feet and folded into a  very neat cover, about 5x10 inches.  The map is surrounded by a border of  the regimental, badges and coat of  arms of nearly every battalion that  left Canada, from Halifax to Vancouver. Every important point can  be recognized at once. That portion  of the map covering France is in a  soft color with names of towns aud  battle scenes in black, easily recognizable. The map is endorsed by returned military experts as most complete aud accurate in detail. Tho map  could not be produced, except in such  large quantities as The Family Herald  will use, at less than two dollars a  copy, yet it can be had absolutely  free with The Family Herald.'  The publishers of The Family Her  aid and Weekly Star for several  months back have been fighting hard  against the necessity of increasing  their subscription rates, but eventu  ally had to come to it like most other  papers. The increase, however, is a  mere trifle���������twenty five cents a year,  making their ' new rate $1 25���������and  with the year's subscription they will  include a copy of this great war map  free of charge. This is certainly a generous offer, and one that Canadians  will appreciate. Many expected a  much larger increase in the subscription price of The Family Herald, and  are surprised at tbe small extra  amount charged.  The enormous circulation of The  Family Herald and Weekly Star  should he still greater when this offer  becomes known.  astern r rices  We have a two years'  contract to handle these  books.
