Mayor Acres and all the aldermen . were present at' the regular  meeting of the city council on-Monday evening.  The matter regarding the upkeep  of certain streets on the transpro-  vincial highway was discussed. Tbe  clerk was instructed to take up with  the property owners of the West  end.the matter of securing a right of  way for.the same, ..so that connec  ; "tion may "be made with Winnipeg  a'enue.-Y^.  The mayor and the city clerk  were instructed to acknowledge to  the militia department the receipt  " of the war trophy gun. The council  decided to ^-place the gun permanently on the western end of.the  postoffice square. The clerk was in-  1 8tructed to'advise the war memorial  ��������� "committee that this -"decision   had  ��������� "been-made/and thj*"'council 'recom-  . __mendedcJthat > the.,.cjbmmitte"eWmak(';  their plans so as"  to conform   with  ��������� this idea. -   -������������������  Mayor Acres, Chairman of the  Finance Committee Hull and City  Clerk Hutton were appointed delegates to the annual meeting of the  Union of British Columbia Municipalities, to be held in Nelson on October 6, 7 and 8 In.the event that  that any of these delegates are un-^  able to attend the convention, they  were empowered to designate their  substitutes.  The chairman of the finance com  mittee reported that the refunding  city debentures were selling locally  satisfactorily. He recommended  hat city bonds amounting to $3000  be taken up, and that the clerk advise the Seminary St. Sulpice, of  Montreal, to draw on the city for  $20,000 to retire a portion of the  debentures-held by them. The re*  port was approved.  The clerk was instructed to call  for tenders, in the Nelson News and  the Vancouver Province, for auditing the city books for 1920, and to  advise Mr. Baird, inspector of mu  nicipalities���������of the action taken by  the council.  Tbe council ordered   that in   fu  ture city water should only be  used  or   domestic   and   sprinkling purposes, except on   a  special   permit  from the city.  The council authorized the board  of workB to place silent policemen at the intersections of  Bridge and First aod Second streets,  at Winnipeg avenue and First and  Second streets, and at Main and  First streets, warning motor car  drivers to keep to. the right. The  council also adopted a resolution requesting   the   police commissioners  , Fall and winter apple prices for  1920 are now fairly established. The  removal of the British embargo until November 15 and the adv-snce in  maximum control price from 20/10  to 23 has had a decided effect. Tbe '. Nearly  opening price given out nine days  ago when'about 400 cars were placpd  was a little lower than today's quo  satious. Wealthies were sold at  $2 40, Macs $2.75, Winesaps $3 and  Delicious ($3.25.

The  organization of this meeting was very  poor from the standpoint of the new  beginner. There was no list of those  in attendance posted, and in the  crowd and bustle it was hard to looate  anyone. The business end of the or  ganization was different. Every matter coming befoee the convention was  discussed by select committees, and  these rsports simplified the work  Those attending:seemed more interested in the 1920 apple deal than in  the business of thr couvention, as at  all simes during the meeting the delegates in the rotunda and corridors  were more numerous than those iu the  convention.  The eastern apple deal for this year  is still in the air. The size of the east  era crop, the scarcity of barrels    and  the British maximum price were   the  big things discussed on   the   outside  Jobbers were "bears" and small   talk  on   prices   was   the   general    topic.

We found that eastern shippers   were  not   selling    and    were   apparently  awaiting   western   prices   as     their  guide.      About   the    last   day    the  quotations on Jonathans   were   made  from  Yakima  at   $2 50.    This price  with exchange and freight is   greater  than   our   $2 75 offerings.

While here Mr. Thorn p  son visited his old home in Phoe  nix and also inspected tbe diamond  drilling now being carried ou by the  government in Franklin camp.  Probably the most important sta e~  ment he made during his visit was,  that the funds for the irrigation system in this valley will be available  as soon as the * water municipality  has been formed and the engineers  have made their report.

"Never!"  saysTthe'gentleman of Scottish descent, whose one vice is his love for  the so-called music of that queer instrument.  From the "Miscellany" of the Manchester Guardian, however, he will  learn:  The Scots may have acquired their  love of bagpipes from England, not  from Ireland, as suggested by Commander* Ken worthy in the house of  commons. In 1865 James Moncrieff,  the lord advocate, told an Ediuburgh  meeting that the bagpipe was an essentially English institution  "The English," said he,. "were the  original bagpipers. Sharkespenre.who  was an authority on music, often refers to" the bagpipes, but he does riot  introdnce them into 'Macbeth.' The  armies in 'Macbeth' do not march on  Dunsinane to the sound of a bagpipe;  but he speaks of the drone of the  Linconshire and Yorkshire bagpipe,  and of a person 'laughing like a parrot at a bagpiper'���������all without the  Caledonian reference. And when we  look at the works in the register  house, which shows how our former  monarchs spent their income, we find  their expenditure for music put down  in suoh entries as 'To the English  piper, 3s. 6d.'

Guban Sugar Boom  New York ���������The Ward liner  Mexico, which reached New York  Monday, was delayed for lwenty-  two hours at Havana, at a cost of  82000 a day to the line, because the  'lonfisboremen at that port were too  busy speculating in sugar to load  that vessel or any other The congestion at'tbat port is the worst in  its history.  These deplorable conditions aie  due to the prosperity of the Cubans.  The merchants seemingly do not  care whether they obtain shipments  of goods. Whenever their supply of  a commodity runs low they boost  its price.  Many ships have laid in Havana  harbor for four months while their  cargoes rotted. Nothing has been ,  done to relieve the situation and it  is believed generally that nothing  will be done so long as public interest centers on the sugar industry.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 27, 1920  The success of the chairman of the council  finance-committee in disposing of a considerable amount of city debentures lodklly is encouraging, and should, call for general commendation from the ratepayers. The ready  sale the bonds have met with gives encouragement to the hope that the entire issue will be  taken up by the people of the community.  The fact; that the citizens are willing to invest  their mone^y in city securities at this particular time, when the money market throughout  the entire country is extremely dull, speaks  well for the condition of our. city. It shows  that the people who live here, and are familiar  with the conditions now existing, know that  they are making a good investment. They  have confidence"m the future of the city, and  their confidence is not misplaced.  jchanical expert where he first saw  the  light  jof day, and nine times ont of ten the answer  will be, on the farm.    The exodus  is  needed  to maintain a sane balance between the  farm  andxity life."  ��������� A widely prevailing idea that the price of  books would be materially lower if they were  issued in paper covers, has elicited from an  authority the remark that in manufacturing  books only ten cents a copy -would be saved  by binding them in paper instead of cloth. It  might make a difference of, sayv thirty cents  in the retail price of the book, but whether  that difference is great enough to create much  of a demand for the paper-covered volumes in  preference to those bound in cloth is doubtful. Readers in this country have not the  habit, which is common in Europe, of having  their books rebound to conform to their own  taste.  We have always been of the opinion that  every community should finance its own improvements. ��������� By bearing its own 'financial  burden, it will also reap all the benefits that  the interest payments will bring. Instead of  sending the semi-annual interest money to  eastern or fereign bondholders,. the money  will be distributed to our own citizens, and it  will fee spenfor reinvested in the district, thns  proving an important factor in stabilizing the  prosperity of the community. Nearly every  " citizen.will, "n fact, feel certain when he pays  his taxes of getting some, if not all, or more,  of the money back in interest. This is an advantages oyer the old method of financing  that does not require the aid of -a microscopic  instrumen^to make it discernible. We therefore desire to add emphasize to our hope that  the entire issue ef bonds.is disposed of locally,  if such a thing is possible.  We have heard of some people refusing to  purchase the bonds owing to the long term of  years tor which they are issued. This should  .not?prove to be a serious objection. The- city  is gra iiially creeping out-of debt. In a few  years, when'the money market of the. couutry  improves, the bonds, on account of the high  interest they draw, will be readily saleable,  and those who may become tired-" of drawing  the semi-annual interest will no doubt be able  to dispose of them in the open market at a  handsome premium.^  One by-one the bibulous iu the United  States are losing their beverages of last resort.  The bureau of internal revenue has placed  blackberry cordial, ��������� wild-cherry wine, the  elixirs of licorice, anise and bitter orange,  compound spirits of juniper and myrcia, compound, tincture of lavender and a number of  other pharmaceutical preparations on the list  of intoxicating liquors. Though Jamaica gin-  gea, colloquially known as "Jakie," seems a  long way removed from compound tincture of  lavender, the law has ferreted out their relationship and publishod it abroad.  An, ingenious computer has" taken pains to  calculate the energy spent in making hyphens."  Reckoning that it takes half an ounce of power to make a single hyphen, and" that each of  the 200,000,000 people who write English  makes on an average three hyphens a, day, he  calculates that we- must wasjte 18,750,000  pounds of power a day, or, as he asserts,  enough to draw a_railroad train round the  world. Well, what of if? Making hyphens is  certainly an inuocent occupation, and we can  afford the time and energy if we wish. The  world is full of just such idle-minded computers, who are always figuring how far a  man could jump if he were as able as a flea,"  or how big a power, plant, it would take to  give a man as brilliant a headlight us a firefly  carries. Futile stuff, all of it. Some of as, who  are reckless, make a dozen hyphens a day,and  others, more abstemious, go months without  making one.

If!  this thing is not stopped, they claim, ruin will'  stare the country in its face.   We  have heard.'  this cry ever since we were a tiny baby.   Butj  still exodus goes goes on. The fact fact of the  matter is, that the farms produce more young  men  than   they can use; and the cities need ;  the sturdy constitutions of these young giants.'  The puny males that  are raised under  glass  in the cities soon   wither  and   die, and some  one must take their places.

He Needed the Money  . Sailors lounging about the rail of  an American destroyer that was anchored in a small Philippine harbor  were throwing pennies into the,water  for a crowd of duesky, naked youngsters to dive for, It was a lively  scene. No sooner was a penny thrown  into-" the water than a-native boy  dived and Brought it to the surface.  Many times a penny did not reach the  bottom before a boy caught it.  ' On the wharf the native mayoa,  surrounded by his fellow townsmen,  was awaiting the arrival of the  American naval officers to whom he  was going to tender a grand reception. He watched the diving with  keen-interest.  A reckless sailor lad began throwing quarters and then half dollars into  the water. Then some one threw  overboard, one after another, a hand  ful of big, glistening silver dollars  What a scrambling! It- seemed as if  every boy in the town was either in  theair or in the water.  Suddenly a'dusky messenger came  dashing breathlessly down the wharf,  and shonted to the group of sailors,  ."Will you lads please stop throwing  those dollars?

Where the  winter ia long and steadily cold, th;;.  cellar,, is usually, satisfactory, but  outside wintering suceeds in1 some  moderately cold place? if proper precautions are taken. At the Central  Experimental Farm, Ottawa, the  two methods have been compared  during ihe last five years. Wintering" outside has been done in an  apiary protected from wind hy a  board fence eight feet high,' the  hives placed in cases made to hold,  four-colonies each with packing material around the sides, beueBch,and  above the hives. The cellar was a  low dry one under the administra  tion building, vyhich was heated all  winter. The results have been very  close,   but  outside^wintering   has  brought the colonies forward slightly  earlier in the-spring.  In the belt where 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 using it he will save the  expense of constructing winteridg  cases,1 and also a windbreak, if this  is not present. For a faw colonies in  a,cold region, a boarded-in part of  the dwelling"Bouse basement makes  a good cellar for the bees, and it is  an advantage if the basement contains a furnace. Such a cellar should  have a steady temperature between  42 deg. and. bO deg. F In outside  wintering, it is very important to  protect the apiary from wind. Outside wintering has the advantage  that tbe bees may -be left' without  attention throughout tbe winter,  whereas in many cellars in - the  milder parts of Cauada the Ventilation has to be watched and controlled. Outside wintering has been  very successful at tbe 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 methg^i is eajly  and 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 early in the spring. Nor_can  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  combs before cold weather. Mice, if  they get into the hives duriug the  winter, will ruin the colonies in a  very short while.  Will Reorganize  The Canada Copper Corporation  now finds itself without sufficient  funds to 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 provfdes 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 2,000,000 shares.of no par  value or of the par value of $5 each,  as the committee may determine,  being the same number as the authorized, shares of the cora.pany.  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 sharps of the new  company and the setiing sipide of  833,333 shares for conversion of .first  mortgage "���������bonds, leaving 78,458  shares to be held for future corporate 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   aud  '^*������  surrendered    to   the    readjust ment  committee under the plan and agree  ment- on or before September 1,  1920, will entitle the. owner thereof  to one share of stock of the new  company, or in the nlternMtive,  without any payment, every three  shares depositee "inrl surrendered to  the committee under the plan and  agreement on or before S'-pteuihcr 1.-  1920, entitles the owner to a snai*''  of stock of the-new enn-rpany. Hnlf  of the payment is to be made ou  September 1 and the other half on  or before October 1-to. the readjustment committee    -  > Lift off Corns!

BUSINESS c^MAN,  , have you ever thought  that advertising putf you in  good company? It is an old  saying that a man is known  by the company he keeps.  When you join the ranks of  the advertisers you join the  ranks of the biggest and  most successful merchants  and manufacturers- in the  world.  How many large concerns  can you name in any large  city in the country? Name  them and you will notice  that all are big advertisers  and all are leaders in their  lines. Ask your friends to  name the most successful  merchants they know in the  big cities, and in each case  the name ot a great advertiser will be mentioned.  The same rule is true of  smaller cities and towns.  The successful merchants  are the advertisers. The  advertiser stamps himself as  one having confidence in  himself and his wares, as  one proud of his calling and  seeking publicity and the  test of patronage.
