C, FRIDAY,   AUGUST 20, 1920  "Tell me what you Know is true:  I can guess as well as you."  $1.00 PER YEAR  CANADA COPPER  WILL REORGANIZE  Stockholders May,, Exchange Old Shares for  Stock in the New Company  The Canada Copper Corporation  now finds itself without sufficient  funds Vo meet its obligations and to  carry on its business. Under these  ���������conditions a plan of reorganization  has been decided on by a readjustment committee. The plan proposed provides for a company to be  organized under the laws of the Dominion of Canada or one of its prov  inces, with a total authorized capital of 32,000,000 shares of no par  value or of the par value of $5 each,  as the committee may determine,  being the same number as the au  tborized. shares of the company.  The new company is to acquire all  of the property and-assets of the old  company," and to assume all its  obligations. " .  The plan also provides for the  issue of 1.088,209 sharesof the new  company, and the.,setting aside oi  833,333 shares for conversion of first  mortgage bonds, leaving 78,458  shares to be held for future corpor  ate purposes..  Under-the plan the..stockholders  have a right to participate on this  basis: The payment of 50 cents with  each share of stock deposited and  surrendered to the readjustment  committee under the plan and agree  ment on or before September11,  1920, will entitle the owner thereof  to one share of stock of the new  company, or in" the alternative,  without any payment, every three  shares deposited and surrendered to  the committee under the plan and  agreement on or before September 1,  ���������1920, entitles the owner to a share  of stock of the new company. Half  of the payment ie to be made on  September 1 and the other half on  or before October 1 to the readjustment committee.  brought the colonies forward slightly  earlier in the spring.  In the be It wheie both cellar and  outsids wintering are about equally  satisfactory, the deciding factor appears to be convenience. If the bee  keeper has a well insulated and dry  cellar, by uting it he will save the  expense of constructing winteridg  cases, and also a windbreak, if this  is not present For a faw colonies in  a cold region, a boarded-in part of  the dwelling house basement makes  a good cellar for the bees, aud it ia  an advantage if ihe basement contains a furnace. Such a cellar should  have a steady lecopera'ure between  42 deg. and 50 deg. F In outside  wintering, it iB very important to  protect the apiary from wind. Out  side wintering has the advantage  that the bees may be left without  attention throughout the winter,  whereas in many cellars in the  milder parts of Canada the ventilation has to be watched and controlled. Outside wintering has been  very successful at the experimental  farm at Kentville, N.S., but at the  experimental farm at Brandon,  Man., the winter has been found too  severe for the best results.  For successful wintering, more  important than the method is early,  aud careful preparation for winter.  For example,- one can not expect  cellar wintering to "be successful if  the bees are left outside until zero  weather, or if they "are brought out  .very _earl"y in the spring. Norycan  one expect good results in outside  wintering if packing is delayed until cold weather. Neither method will  succeed if the colonies do not contain plenty of bees, especially young  bees, and, above all, abundance of  wholesome stores, preferably clover  honey, or syrup made from white  granulated sugar, stored in the  ccmbs before cold weather. Mice, if  they get into the hives during the  winter, will ruin the colonies in a  very short while.  NDSONBIRDS  Man's Desire for Slaughter Has Altered the  Balance of Nature in  Animal World  GROP CONDITIONS  ON THE PRAIRIE  WINTERING BEES  IN THE CELLAR  VS. OUTSIDE  Experimental Farms Note.  Whether to winter in the cellar or  outside iB a questiou that every bee .  keeper has to decide. Where the  winter is long and steadily cold, the  cellar is usually satisfactory, but  outside wintering suceeds in some  moderately cold places if proper precautions are taken. At the Central  Experimental Farm, Ottawa, the  two methods have been compared  during the last five years. Wintering outBide has been done in an  apiary protected from wind by a  board fence eight feet high, the  hives placed in cases made to hold  four colonies each with packing material around the sides, beae_ch,and  above the hives. The cellar was a  low dry one under the administration building, which was heated all  winter. The results have been very  close,   but  outside   wintering   has  Showers have fallen in many sections of the prairie prov-ipce during  the week, and although precipitation in any locality was by no means  heavy, there was generally sufficient  to materially benefit crops now filling. Rye, barley and early oat cut*  ting is in full swing throughout the  west, while harvesting wheatg not  yet general, has commenced on a  fair scale in Manitoba and Saskatchewan and a few points in Alberta.  The livestock situation is satisfactory, and pastures are affording  grazing. Hoppers are still causing  losses of a minor character.  Do we appreciate our birds? -  The west ia threatened with a  grasshopper plague,. while in the  east the caterpillar is causing havoc  among the trees.  Man, with his insatiable slaughter  of the birds, has so reduced the balance of nature that the destructive  insects.are getting the upper hand.  Dr. Tplmie, minister of agriculture,  in introducing his estimates in the  house-of commons, stated that Can  ada's annual loss from parasites  amounted to $125,000,000, and that  in preparation for the expected  grasshopper plague alone there had  been purchased 100,000 pounds of  arsenic, 2000 tons of bran and 50,-  000 gallons of molasses with which  to make poisoned bait.  To overcome, or at least to minimize, the caterpillar plague various  methods are being adopted, chfefly  that of spraying.  -Recently, a woodpeckerV swas ^nov  ticed at work upon a tree which was  being defoliated by caterpillars.  With the aid of binoculars, it was  found that in one visit to the tree it  secured twenty-four ��������� caterpillars.  This bird, or another, returned at  about quarter-hour . intervals, each  time disposing of a number or cater  pillars.  Birds are the natural enemies of  insects and bugp, and without them  we could not successfully combat  the pests which destroy our food  supplies.  By protecting the birds   we   pro  tect ourselves.  They report having met with considerable success, -having obtained  agreements for the sale of $10,000  dnriug the first few hours they were  out.

LECTRICITY FOR  H  News of theCiiy  Death of Mrs. O'Keefe  The death of Mrs. Geo. O'Keefe  occurred Saturday afternoon at the  Grand Forks hospital of tuberculosis  after a prolonged illness. Deceased  was 31 years of age, and had been  a resident of the city for twelve  years. She was the mother of six  children, four of whom are living,  and she is also survived by her!  husband. She was a native of!  Butte, Mont., where her pareuts and  two sisters now reside.  The funeral was held on Monday  afternoon, and it was largely attend-'  ed by friends and  relatives of the  faiiily of deceased.  Arrangements were made this  week whereby the tract of land consisting of nine acres, immediately  south of the city, owned by the late  W. E. Paterson, was sold to Charles  Hook. Consideration $1100. Mr.  Hook some months ago came from  the prafrie, and after thoroughly investigating the district decided to  locate here. He also purchased the  house and two lots owned by F.  Newbauer, adjacent to the Ruckle  addition, and he will improve both  properties. Both sales were made  through the real estate office of S.  T. Hull.  W. J. Galipeau, manager of the  Grand Forks Concrete company, left  on Wcndesday for Trail, where the  company has secured a $5000 contract for constructing the concrete  foundation of the Presbyterian  church.  The option which the Toronto  firm of brokers held on city refunding debentures expired last Saturday  night, Yesterday afternoon the  mayor and the chairman of the  finance committee started out to dispose of   some of the bonds locally.  Concerted Action by Municipalities Would Provide for Wide Distribn-  tionof This Convenience  THE ROCK  m MILL  The Only Plant of Its  Kind on the Continent  Has Proved a Great  Success  The necessity for a more adequate  supply of electric energy to the  smaller communities, particularly  in the west, has often been pointed  out by the commission of conservation. Concerted action would bring  this most beneficial utility to every  town, village and practically ^very  farm within reach. %i  The middle west of the United  States is very aggressive in this respect. Central stations are.building  lines as rapidly as possible, and are  planning more for the immediate  future. Regarding the construction  and cost of these the Electrical  World states:  "In general the cor.st ruction is  of two sorts fJr two very different  purposes. The first consist mainly  of 33,000 volt and 6G,000-volt lines,  interconnecting generating stations  and taking on new towns or industries. The second consists of 2300-  volt and 4600-volt Hues, designed to  serve groups oj farmers and small  villages.  "While it is difficult to generalize  on prices when the metal markets  are so unstable, it may be said that  farm lines cost at present from $600  to $800 a mile and the^33,000������volt  and 66,000-volt lines cost from  $3500 to $4.5UO a mile. Moreover,  the cost factor seema at present to  be one of the most important items  in determining how long this era of  construction may last. Certainly the  demand for Bervice will not limit I  the activity for some to -.come, es'pe-j  cialiy in the- farm-line extensions."  (From  the   Annual   Report  of  the  Minister of Mines.)  The building of this 100-ton capacity mill by the Consolidated Mining & Smelting company, of Trail,  was more or less of an experiment at  first, which has been added to and  changed according to necessity. The  results obtained to date are satisfactory from a concentration stand  point and reflect credit upon those  who have worked upon its solution.  The fluorite is brought approxi*  mately two miles from the mine to the  mill over an aerial tram, and then  dumped in bins of 250 tons capacity  From thence it is distributed by  apron feeds through a 20xl0������inch  Blake crusher and elevated to "a  trommel screen of one-fouith inch  mesh, the oversize passing through  two sets of rolls set to three-eighths  inch and one fourth inch respectively. All . products then , paBs  through a rotary^ryer fourteen" feet  long and three feet two inches in  diameter, which is heated by the  waste gases from the kilns. This  product is again elevated and passed  over thrse sets of impact screens, the  feed for No. 1 kiln being plus one-  fourth inch, No. 2 kiln being minus  one-fourth inch or plus No. 8, and  No. 3 kiln being minus No. 8 or  plus No. 15.  The minus No. 15 makes  up  the  ��������� v..  middling product. The smalls from  No. _ 2 screen gives the best result  for decrepitation, making a product  containing about 2 per cent silica.  The rotary kilns are fourteen feet  long and three feet two inches wide  and make three revolutions a minute. About 1200 deg. Fahr. is the  necessary for decrepitation. The  middling'product contains about 5  ���������percent silica and-is used locally for  making acid, and also for adjusting  the coventrates to" meet specifications. After decrepitation takes  place the product is slowly elevated  to permit cooling before being finally screened and stored for  shipment.  As far as the writer is aware this  is the only mill of its kind on the  American continent, and the success  achieved may be instrumental in  solving other problems of a similar  nature elsswhere. Sixteen men were  employed and 3372 tons milled,  which produced 898 tons of concentrates, with an approximate content  oj 84 per cent CaFa and 6 per cent  SiO.  For the purpose oi organizing a  federal Unionist association for the  Grand Forks riding, a meeting will  be held in the opera house on Wednesday, August25, at 8 p.m. Prominent Unionist sprakers will address  tke meeting.

A year ago his word stood against the  world;  now none  is  is  so poor or lowly that he can'  not crack a jibe at his expense.    We are  not  one of those who form hasty opinions, nor do  we   lightly  abandon ideals   once embraced.  Plato thanked the gods that he  lived "in  the  same age as Socrates,    We  have often  been  thankful because,we are living in the same age  as  President  Wilson.     The Athenians  put  Socrates  to  death; Socrates still lives.    The  Americans  have   all   but crucified President  Wilson; Wilson will live when the dust of "his  detractors has been ground to powder.  as "the human rights of labor," deny in act  if  not  n word the right of. labor to   bargain  for  wages  and   hours- oi^rvx'OTk^'a'lxd^dikolay the  spirit of an industrialVi^-iftoci'ae^, out  they are'  not numerous and thev are censured  bv their  own order as freely as they arecondemhed by  those whom they employ. But shorter  hours  and increasing wages require high efficiency in  labor and in factory organization if production  is-to be maintained, and one regrets that  the  official leaders of labor so seldom  appeal   for:  efficiency among workers and so .seldom  emphasize  the  necessity for high production in  order that wages -may not   be   reduced   nor  prices-to the public  increased.   Capital only  represents wealth engaged in service or available for service, and there could be no greater  mistake than to assume that there is  a great  reserve of idle capital out of which wages may  be increased .and   new levies of taxation met|  without greater production. As has been said:  "There is only one way to prosperity, and that  is by  increased  production, which  we  shall  never get insufficient measure until capitalists  have confidence in  the continuance of satisfactory  conditions  and   the workers see that  their future  prosperity  depends,  not   upon  their power to hold up the community to ransom, -but  on   their active  cooperation in the  creation of wealth."

Most;  people  will agree that  we can at least g;o a  long way 'towards-solving  the problem   by  adopting better farm" methods; by^making the  home more attractive; by keeping better live  stock; by making more  profit  on   the   farm,  which will make  possible .more   comfortable  conditibnssuch as will be conducive to happiness and contentment;  by. making conditions  toberable for the former's wife, and  generally  by, doing everything we can to  make  life  on  C.

Labor today commands a great price in that service that has to do with manual skill or brawn;  it takes a larger share of its ultimate value  than ever before; it works " under  beneficient  conditions generally.   It has broadly the goodwill of the employer, who is much  concerned  about the health and social and economic welfare of his employees, because he has a  fine  concept of human rights."
