 mu  and  Kettle'Valley Orchardist  SIXTEENTH YEAR���������No. 6  JGRAND FORKS/B. C, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 8/1916  $1.00 PER YEAH  Lieut.-Col. Warden Says the  Modern Soidier Must Be a  Mule, a Navvy and a Mole  Mayor Acres today received the  following letter from. Col. J. W.  Warden, who is now on active'service in France. The letter is self-  explanatory:  In   thc   Field,   France,   Nov. 17,  1916.��������� His   Worship    the   Mayor.  Dear Mr. Mayor:    I  feel   that  it is  only right that I should write  you  some brief account of those   men in  my battalion  who  hail from   your  city   and   district.    At  the time of  organization, when I was   busy   recruiting, you   rendered   me   much  valuable assistance, but   how  valuable I never realized till I had  had  an opportunity of seeing your  lads  with their spurs on   the  battlefield.  And they won them, not once only,  nor   even   twice, but   three   times  within   the  short   period  that we  have   been   overseas,   have     they  proved their mettle with  cold steel.  I am   proud   of   having thern, and  you and, your "iownsmen  canst   be  proud   of   having   supplied  them;  and on their return you.must award  them the honor which is their due.  Modem   soldiering,   as  you   are  doubtless- aware; is  not   merely   a  matter of iiHe and bayonet   for  the  infantryman.  At times he is a pack  mule, laden  with supplies- for his  comrades in the front line; again he  is a navvy constructing a light railway.    If   you    look-at him again,  you   fiudv him   transformed into a  miner,   burrowing   with   pick   and  aaovel   into   a  moist,    treacherous  sjiI.    But whether  mule, navvy or  mole, your men have   always   held  their own with the best.  They have  invariably done their job,  and   that  little   bit   more   which  proves the  sterling worth of a man. I am grateful to you for them, and   only wish  that  had   more  like   them coming  over to renew the wastage of war. '.:  ���������I am, yours very sincerely,  J. W. Wakden,  Liut.-Col., 0. C. 102 Bat., Can. Infantry, North British Columbians.  we pleaded that his government  Bhould be given a fair trial, .so we  now urge that all rancour' should  cease and Mr. Brewster and his niin  isters be afforded the opportunity  they have won ot making good.  By-elections, following so close  upon a general election,if .contested,  would have the effect.of -" disrupting  business and reawakening political  differences at a time when'party disagreements should be lost sight of  and a united effort made for the  common good. The general election  is over and we trust there is no ill-  feeling rankling in the minds of any  section of the community. If there  is, let.them obliterate it and all  work together in the interests of the  province, the Dominion and the  empire as a whole, during- the time  of crisis through which the British  peoples are passing.���������Victoria Colonist.  PRIME MINJST  The By-tlections  The Vancouver World prints a report that all the cabinet ministers  arc to be opposed at the by elections  We think such a proposal is very  unwise and hope it. is not being entertained It is improbable that the  Conservative party, as a party, has  any desire to contest the seats of the  ministers at this time. .The peoble  have given their verdict, and it is  difficult to sec any justification for  putting the country to the expense  aud inconvenience that would attend further contests.  The following  is  the   minimum  and maximum temperature for each  day   during   the   past   week, as re-  As far as Thc Colonist has   been ! corded by the government thermom-  able to sound public opinion   there eter on E. F. Laws' ranch:  London, Dec. 6.���������David Lloyd  George has overthrown the Asquith  cabinet and will become prime min-  isrer himself. "The new government  will be coalition, like the old one,  butprobably without the same  measure of harmonious support  which attended the formation of the  first coalition government, because  its birth has created addtional factional differences.  This rpsul.uhas emerged from   an  other  day   of   active  and   hurried  party conferences and a day  of  in  tense suspense and interest throughout the country.       .���������  ���������London, Dec. 7.���������David Lloyd  George at Buckingham palace tonight formally kissed the -king's  hand on acceptance of the office of  prime minister and first lord of the  treasury. This indicates that the  new premier sees his way to the  formation of an administration, and  he probably was able to submit to  the king a preliminary list of some  of the proposed ministers.  Doubtless much" remains to be  done in the way of the allocation of  the new posts, and so far as the  public is concerned the personnel of  thej mini'stry is a matter of pure  speculation. But the premier still  has plenty of time before he has to  meet parliament on Tuesday to complete the details, and he will doubtless be in a position to present to  the house of commons his new national ministry, represeuting all  parties with the possible exception  of the Nationalists, and, if common  report fs to be trusted, comprising a  strong business element.  -TRIBIfnOMSTO  Boundary - Kootenay   Towns  Contributed $21,475 During November  During     November     Boundary  Kootenay towns   contributed   $21,-  475 to the provincial branch  of   the  Canadian Patriotic   fund, according'  to the statement issued by the secre  tary, Fred Nation, of Victoria.

The question of hold a fair next  fall was discussed at length. Those  present expressed themselves in  favor of the annual .exhibition as  usual, but thought that the size of  the fair ought to be governed by  the conditions which might prevail  next year.

If there was plugging in.  that election tbe laws of this, province call for the most vigorous efforts  to disclose the facts and the puriish-  medt of the guilty    parties.    Obviously, however,  no   inquiry   would  be complete without the evidence of  the man Scott, who must be located  and returned to  this   country.    He  already has made   a statement, but  that statement carries no  weight in  view of the refusal of the  man   who  made it to submit   himself   for examination upon it.

C.  office:   columnra avenue and lake street.  FRIDAY, DECEMBER 8, 1916  The energetic efforts of the canvassing committees for the Patriotic fund brought forth  gratifying results. There appears to be but  slight doubt now of Grand Forks being able  to do. her share for the cause during the coming year. The committees are entitled to  credit for their thorough work.  David Lloyd George is now in the saddle  in England. The energetic little ^yelshman  may be depended on to speed up things both  in Downing street and at the front. The new  prime minister never had much veneration  for cobwebs or old fogyisms. We look for a  turn in .the right direction in military quarters  in the Old Country.  It is a popular supposition that there is no  rest for the wicked. This fact probably accounts for Senor Villa's recent activities  Mexico.  servative constituency,.and which has usually  manifested a leaning in that direction,has.this  to say, in a recent issue,   illustrating  the  revolt   noticeable   throughout  Canada in Conservative circles against government  mismanagement at Ottawa: "The people of Cowichan  would be content to go on half rations, if need  be, in order to win the war, but they  are  indignant at the unprincipled and untrammelled  methods adopted by certain interests who are  literally sucking the life-blood of the   nation.  The vampires are hard to locate.   They shield  themselves behind names  of companies   and  concerns.   Of such are the dastards who manipulate the wheat  markets, who  control  the  sugar factories and who lose no chance to pile  up the ever growing burden of the cost of living. No less deserving of condemnation is the  vascillating government which  allows   nickel,  mined in Canada, to reach  German merchant  submarines   and  to be utilized by the enemy  powers. Sir Robert Borden has frittered away  two years in'sulfering a  bombastic politician  to be at the head  of the  militia department.  How many good lives that has cost Canada it  would be hard to-say. Does he propose to allow the drain of Canadian nickel to flow into  German hands? Unsavoriness in governments  and   politicians   will  be  called  by an uglier  name  ere  long, and, if the temper of Canada  is what it should be, .here will be a full reckoning exacted."  The Sun, at $1.00 per year, gives its readers  three times more reading matter than any  other Boundary paper. This fact accounts  for the rapid increase in our circulation.  Besides being read by all the intelligent people of Grand Forks, The Sun goes to every  ranch home in the Kettle and North Fork  valleys. No other Boundary paper can give  advertisers this guarantee.  There are indications that some, at least, of  President Wilson's numerous notes will soon  fall due.  In war time a useful Christmas present  should prove twice as acceptable as a gaudy  thing that is merely made for the purpose of  pleasing the eyes.  It is advisable to do your Christmas shopping early. But don't do it too early���������the  stores in this city don't open until 8:30 in the  SNAP-IF TAKEN AT ONCE  morning.  , A contribution to the Patriotic fuud is paying a debt of gratitude. It is also an investment for your own security.  Col. Lowery, the Greenwood Ledge humorist, is making a trip to San Diego for the benefit of his health. He will doubtless return  home with a suit case full of funny anecdotes  of the antics of the Greasers on the border.  The Sun hopes that he will come back rejuvenated.
