MISS MUNKO.  (At old High School.)  Receiving Class���������Charles Michalec,  Harold   Lowman,    Agnes    Hobbins,  Louis Santano, and all beginners.  'right,  Schnitter were present at the regular  meeting of the city council on Monday evening.  The chairman of the finance^com-  mittee reported that his committee  had met and had adopted a resolution to the eftVct that if it should  develop������that the Grand Forkd Town-  site company is in liquidation, as it  is claimed by the compauy, and  thus render the holding of a tax sale  inadvisable, the committee reoom  mended that the city proceed to collect delinquent taxes through the  courts, as is now being done in other  cities in this province.  A letter was read from tbecity clerk  to the local agent of the townsite com  pany, S. T. Hull,   which  informed  Mr. Hull that if the company paid its  1916 taxes a tax sale could be avoid  ed this year.    Mr.   Hull  had   taken  the matter up with   the  head   office  in Toronto, the result of which   was  a   letter   from   the   company's   Toronto solicitors. The contents of this  letter were transmitted to the  coun  oil by the company's local  solicitor,  H. L. Mackenzie.   The letter stated  the Grand Forks Townsite company  was in liquidation,! and   if the city  of Grand Forks- persisted in including  the   property   in   a   tax sale, an in  junction restraining such sale would  be  applied   for, and   they  had   no  doubt but that it would   be  granted  and the  company   exempted   from  paying   adyertising   fees  and other  costs connected with the sale.  The mayor stated that the town  site company's taxes amounted to  $4700, and that the city had offered  to accept 83000 on account. rJVe  total amount of delinquent taxes for  1916 and 1917 was about $16,-  000. If a tax sale could not be held, |  he favored putting the accounts of  those liable for taxes under a tax  sale in the hands of a lawyer for  collection.  Aid. McCallum said tbeceHectiom  of   taxes  through   the courts was a  new* procedure,  and  he   wished  to  have tbe question   thoroughly   discussed by the whole council.  The aldermen expressed them-  selvesas being in iavor of one or the  other of the above plans of collecting the arrear taxes, and on motion  of Schnitter and Harkness, the clerk  was instructed to telegraph to Victoria and Toronto at the earliest  possible moment for information  as  was badly decayed. He recommended that it be repaired temporarily,  and that the question of constructing  a new bridge be taken up with Road  Superintendent McCallum, J. E.  Thompson, M.P.P., the Grnby company, and the ��������� provincial government. On motion, the board was  authorized to make the necessary  repairs and instructed to enter into  negotiations with the proper authorities for a new bridge.  The request of two of the ministers of the city for exemption from  payment of road tax, was referred  to the finance committee.  Aid. Harkness was granted leave  to introduce the Grand Forks council bylaw. It was advanced to the  the third reading stage with but  slight opposition. The bylaw pro  vides for a mayor and reduces the  aldermanic representation iu the  council to four.  .. Aid: Harkness gave notice that at  the next meeting he would ask leave  to introduce a bylaw amending the  Grand Forks ward bylaw. He explained that the present boundaries  of the wards would not be altered.  The question of allowing people  to raise litters of pigs inside the city  limits was brought by Aid.  Schnit-  Two    Weeks   Allowed   to  Pheasants���������Open Sea-  sonin this District  ter. After being discussed, the  matter was referred to the board of  health.  The council adjourned till Thursday evening.  At the adjourned meeting last  night it was decided to -hold a tax  sale ou October 7.  Chief of Staff March Says  . 4,000,000 Yanks Will Be  in France Next June  According to the announcement  of the attorney general, the deer  hunting season will open on September 14, to continue to December 15,  both days inclusive. Bear may be  taken from October 1 to June 30,  inclusive. Foxes November 1 to  March 15. Other fur bearing animals, November 1 to March 31.  These dates are for this district.  For game birds the province has  been divided into three districts, the  Okanagan being included in what is  termed the eastern district. Here  ducks.snipe and plover may be shot  from September 14 to December 15.  The limit for one day is fixed at 25  duckb, and the possession of more at  any one time entails the provisions  of proof as. to date upon which they  were killed or taken. The season for  geese and brant is September 14 to  December 15.  For grouse (blue, ruffed, Franklin  and ptarmigan) the season is September 14 to October 31,inclusive.  No open season for Okanagan is  named for prairie chicken or quail,  but the latter may be shot in the  electoral district of Simiikameen,the  season being October 26 to Noveni-  b t S, inclusive. Twenty quail is a  day's limit.  : The open season for pheasant.cock  birds only, in southern Okanagan  and Simiikameen is from October 26  to November 8. inclusive.  THE WEATHER  Washington,   Aug.

Next week, if the occasion requires it, we  shall probably say a few words about the proposed tax sale and the cost thereof.  ff=  The primary object of the bylaw is supposed  to be to conserve the city's finances. With this  object we are in hearty accord. But we hesitate to endorse a plan that may effect a questionable saving at the expense of impairing  the city's representation by centralizing power,  and by placing the taxpayers of one portion  of the city at the mercy of a hostile alderman  from another section.  In response to the call for increased production the people of the cities, towns and  villages of Canada have vastly increased the  garden acreage in this country. Last year it  was estimated by the Agricultural Gazette  that the value of the war gardens' produce  amounted to somewhere between $20,000,000  and $30,000,000. This year Frederick Abraham, honorary chairman of the war garden  and vacant lot section of the Canada food  board, after a survey of Canada's war garden  reports from coast to coast, estimates that this  year's production will be two or three times  greater than last year. On this basis the war  gardens of Canada this year have produced  anywhere from $40,000,000 to $90,000,000  worth of fruit and vegetables. Taking a conservative view of these figures, the war garden  production in Canada for 1918 should be  worth about $50,000'000.  c<  onserve lour nyesi  sight  ���������-^  No one can estimate the extent to which we must depend upon  ' our eyesight to win this war.

It would be a positive shame if after all the  work, time and money and material spent  upon these gardens, a large proportion of the  crops were allowed to go to waste for lack of  distribution to consumers. It is impossible for  the family of the war gardener to consume, in  many cases, more than a fraction of the vegetables and fruits his garden has produced. The  Canada food board has ur^ed war gardeners  to can perishable fruits and vegetable in the  greatest possible quantity, but many lots have  more than   one  family can use-, even  Christina Lake Pavilion  Dancing every Wednesday night  during season.

The bylaw under consideration, in the event that it is approved by  the ratepayers and admitting for argument's  sake that it will save a few dollars above the  cost of submitting it to the electors, will not  furnish the amount required. A horizontal  cut of expenses may possibly have to be resorted to. At least one city department main  tains a larger staff today than in former years,  when there was an equal amount of work to  do. The city also apparently revels in the  luxuary of a self-styled "official organ," which  has to be liberally fed. A few other cases  where savings might be effected could be  mentioned, but for the present, these will suffice.  taking into account the interval between now  and next harvest, either . fresh, canned, dried  or stored. Amateur gardeners, in numerous  cases, expressed themselves as unwilling to  sell their surplus vegetables and fruits, not  Cciring to take the position of growing garden  iruck for money. If such gardeners would for:  swear their delicacy in this matter, recognizing that these are war times, and the shortage  of foods is well nigh world-wide, it would  avoid a serious danger of waste. Where they  can dispose of their surplus, either by sale or  by gifts to their less well-situated neighbors,  they should take pleasure in doing so. The  community is being closely knit by the necessities of war. Food production, food storing,  food conservation and food distribution are all  patriotic services of utmost importance to the  whole community.
