 V'i'O  a nd  Kettle VaJley Orchardist  if  S XTEENTH YEAR���������No, 14  GRAND FORKS, B. C, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1917  $1.00 PER YEAR  THE COAL FIELDS  Men Return to Work  Pending   Conference   With  Minister of Labor  with a view of those  camps  call'ng  off the sectional strike.  CUSTOMS RECEIPTS  The coal miners at Fernie, Michel,  Coleman and Carbondale returned  to work Saturday pending a settlement of the war bonus dispute by  the Hon. T. W. Crothers, minister  of labor.  . A joint conference between tbe  miners' officials, the operator? nnd  the minister was slated to begin  yesterday at Calgary, and it was announced that the miners' representa~  lives had definitely promised to at  tend.  Saturday, Sunday and Monday  special meetings were held with the  district officers in attendance, and  these resulted in the resumption of  work. This decision was reached  by secret ballot being taken at the  four oamps,. Fernie voting over three  to one in favor; Michel.Colman and  Carbondale also were decisive.  The   report reached  Fernie that  Lethbridge,   Taber, Coalhurst and  Bellevue unions held  an independent conference   Saturday, and that  representatives of  these  locals - decided to remain on   strfke   pending  adjustment. The situation therefore,  as   a   whole, did  not  appear to be  void of  complications, but the action taken at the Fernie end of  the  pass by resuming work was considered decided iy a movement in   the  right direction, and unless the  contemplated renewed negotiations |be  came   lethargic,   temporary  settlement of the labor unrest in   the coal  mining industry appeared  probable.  Work at Bellevue,   Hillcrest  and  Frank was tesumed on Tuesday,this  action   being   decided on   at  mass  ���������meetings held Monday night.  A slight variation Was made fn  the method of conducting the vole  Sunday, which was taken by secret  ballot, supervised by the local  union representatives, and although  convincingly decisive when it became evident that the majority were  greatly in favor of resuming at Fernie, some agitation was commenced  to hold a special meeting on Monday to consider the matter. This  request was based upon some information having been received relative to the decision taken at L- th-  bridge, which was reported to" have  been opposed to resumption.

At   Michel   and   the  other  two  R. R. Gilpin, customs officer at  this port, makes the following detailed report of the customs receipts  at the head office in this city'and at  the various sub-customs offices, for  the'monthof -January,- 1917: -  Grand Forks..-  4,171.68  Phoenix       569.69  Carson...;       234.40  Cascade         48.63  Total  85,024.30  Phoenix Honors Bobbie Burns  The anniversary of Bobbie  Burns  vyas fittingly celebrated  in   Phoenix  on Thursday   evening of'last   wpek,  when about seventy of the   Scottish  residents and friends of   that   town  met in the Knights of  Pythias bal'.  The hall was beautifully   decorated  with bunting representing the allied  nations at war.    Chairmau Thomas  Brown at 8 30 started tbe ball   rolling by making a short   and   appropriate address. This was the  fourth  year in succession they  had met in  Phoenix for that  purpose.    In  the  last two years practically all the old  faces   had   disappeared,    many   of  whom had paid the supreme   sacrifice on the battlefields of   France in  the interests of the  motherland; but  they   were   proud   to   have two returned   soldiers   with     them    that  night,   namely,   James, Porter  and  Dan- Paterson,   who" had   givs-fii; a-  good account of  themselves on   the  firing line.    He hoped   all   present  would enjoy themselves  and   make  the   event one  long  to be remembered.    The first item on    the   program   was   a   bagpipe  selection by  William Smith, after which Scottish  dances,     interspersed   with    songs  recitations, violin and   piano   selections, continued till midnight, when  all sat down i.o an excellent  supper.  After supper dancing was again  resumed    and    continued    until    3  A meeting of the members and  all those desirous of becoming mem-  bjrs of the Provincial Fruit Growers'  association will be held in the board  of trade rooms on Saturday, Febru  ary 3, at 3 p.m. sharp. The business to be considered includes the  appointment of a delegate to attend  the annual meeting to be held at.  Victoria on February 13 and 14; to  nominate a director for this district  for 1917, and to transact by resolution any matter the members of the  association may wish to have  brought up before the annual meeting.

Yesterday  Berlin, through a note delivered by Ambassador von  Bernstorff, notified the Washington government that the  contral powers wonld return  unrestricted submarine warfare on the merchant marine  of the entente nations as well  as on the shipping of neutral  countries. It is difficult to  see how President Wilson can  extricate himself from the position he .has taken on this  question and avoid a break  with Germany.  Today   the   eyes of Great  Britain and all Europe are fo-  cLi-iijOu' un    *v cisiiiri^ouii, -but  whatever    course   of  action  President Wilson has  chosen  to  meet  Germany's  declaration of unrestricted submarine  warfare   is   known   only   to  three or   four of his   official  family.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1.91.7  The Sun is glad to note that a large percentage of the men who enlisted in this city as  privates have earned promotions on the field  of battle at the front. The citizens of Grand  Forks feel proud of these brave and gallant  h soldiers, and hold them in as great esteem  and admiration as they have contempt for the  men who strutted around the city as officers  and then developed "cold feet" when the time  for departure for the front arrived.  The Repuhli ��������� Journal is as severe as it is laconic in  its criticism of other papers. After citing the fact  that a British Columbia wtekly hasinstalled a linotype,  it. adds: "All the paper needs now to make it a real  newspaper   is    to   install   an editor."  Trying   to  do   business   without advertising is   like  winking at a pietty girl through a pair of green goggles  You know what you are  doing but nobody else docs.  A late report from Anyox says that the Gr-uihy  snieltci is only running two of its four furnaces at  that place.  The year 1916 stands out in relief as marking the  greatest annual period of progress since the infancy of  the mineral industry of British Columbia. While it  will be some weeks beh re the returns from the  various operators are available so that the exac production may be known, a conservative estimate  places the production o;' the past year at al ou ������45,-  000,000. This is an 'increase of about 50 per cent  over tbe mineral production of the (devious year, and  40 per cent increase over 1912, hitherto  the record year  in the mineral production.  ���������    A man will bark and growl all day and get mud  when his dog tries it at ni������ht.  The entry of the United States into the  world war now appears to be inevitable.  What effect a rupturs of diplomatic relations  between America and Germany will have on  struggle is as yet problematical. But even if  the United States government is not prepared  to take an active part in the fighting with the  entente nations, her influence with the neutral  countries, and her resources and wealth,which  would be at the disposal of the allies, should  be potent factors in shortening the conflict.

OBSERVATIONS  A few of the interior weeklies have installed���������  most of tbem on tbe installment plau���������linotype machines, and a lot of rot is heing written about that me  chanical wonder. They usually date the linotype  "epoch" from the arrival of their own machines. As  a matter of fact, the linotype came into general use  in all the city offices, on this continent about twentv-  five years ago. At the present time the Lanston monotype is crowding the linotype for first place as a type  composing machine. In a great number of instances  during the past few year.-* the latter machine has been  displaced by the former. \   *  There are two ways of looking at a proposition of  an industrial enterprise increasing its facilities. If  a drayman has only sufficient . business to keep a  handsled busy, it would obviously be foolish for him  to keep a four horse team employed on the job. On  the other hand, if he has enough work for a four  horse team, he is equally foolish if he attempts to do  ]t with a handsled. To which class do the newspapers  that have  recently  installed linotypes belong?  The Greenwood Ledge did not arrive in this city  until Saturday night last week. The Sun was at  first apprehensive that the Ledg������ had installed a lino  type; but late accounts of the delay appear to indicate  that it was of no more serious a nature than is sometimes  created by an unusual rush of job work.  Sir Samuel  Evans and  Sir  tidward  Carson  Sir Sam Evans has many, good stories of his pro  fession, but few are better than this of the man who  stole a pair of'trousers:~*  This man received a favorable verdict, but when  the case was over ho showed uo| signs of leaving the  court. At last his lawyer asked him why he didn't go.  The innocent (?) man whispered in reply: "The fact  is, sir, I did not like to move till the'witue.-ses had left  the court. You see I've.,got on the".troust-rs what I  stole."  Sir Edward Carson is caustic. His wit is more like a  blow with a  cavalry sword ihan n rapier thrust: .  One of the best examples is afforded by one of his  early cases, in which he was opposed by an elderly,  prosy, long-winded lawyer in an assault case.  The elderly lawyer, in his concluding address,  spoke for six ho'iirs���������an interminable, fuggy, stupid,  speech. Then his opponent rose. He smiled slightly,  looked  at. the.judge and jury, and said:  "Your honor, I will follow the example of my  learned friend who has just concluded, and submit the  case without argument!" -    -  Even more cutting was his njoinder to a wit  ness ,he was once cross examining, with an obviously  red nose. "You drink, my man," was the counsel's  blunt remark. Witness: "That's my business."  Sir Edward (blandly):    "Any other business?"  Dear Little Soul  At breakfast one morning Daddy was telling his little girl, aged seven, how a dear.kind stork had brought  her a dear little baby brother in the night, "and." said  he, "I want you to write and tell brother Willie at  college all about it."  In the evening the little gir! asked Daddy for a stamp  to post the letter.  "Give it to me nnd I will post it," said Daddy.  "Dear little soul!" he thought. "I must read her account of  the 'kind stork story' to h������r brother."

That the American fleet, ordered  from Hougkong, under Dewey's  command, when the Spanish war  broke out, should put the Spanish  squadron out of business iu Manila  bay, on that morning in May, 1898,  was no surprise to naval authorities  then. No one is at all surprised  now. The thing was inevitable.' Tbe  defences of Manila were trilling, and  tbe tipanis-h squadron but ao many  tubs against the naval guns of the  United Slates. LVwey him������elf, true  sailor that he wa-, disliked the excessive demonstrations which wel  turned .him- on his return to New  York and Washington.  But if you wished to touch the  real man, and to kindle tbe feelings  that were deeper than the froth and  foam uf street-crowd jubilations,  you started him on the account of  his own part iu the program of that  war. If there were no doubtful  strangers in tbe company, and no  reporters eager for a "scoop," you  might get a story, not only of the  navy of the United States, but also  of the navy of Britain and the navy  of Germany, that would utterly dislocate the whole of President Wil  son's theoiy of neutrality.  There was not one neutral blood-  beat in Admiral Dewey's heart. The  world-purposes of Britain he took  for granted; the honor of a British  officer he would not qm^tion; the  fact that Britain was mistress of tbe  seas-w������s to him, as an American, a  comfort, not a fear. But in Germany and in Germany's purposes in  the Pacific he had no faith whatsoever. He may have seen some let-  iters, touching that subject, .which  passed between McKinley and Salis  !'bury. Pie certainly put quick and  certain construction on tbe discourteous conduct towards him and his  country manifested by Prince Henry  of Prussia on board the German  flagship at Hongkong; and ten years  after the incident at Manila bay he  made no bones about the sinister  meaning of Vice Admiral von Died-  richs' truly Prussian sueer: "I am  here by order of the kaiser, sir!"  and when the occasion was proper  neither Dewey nor anv of his officers  made any concealment of what, in  their judgment, might have hap  pened that day had not Chichester's  3ignal come back from tbe British  flagship to one of von Diedrichs'  questioning signals: "I'll clear my  decks for action.".  Writing of the incident at Manila  bay, Admiral Dewey, in   his Auto  -biography, published in 1913, says:  "At f>:-13 I saw-the Spanish flag  come down and then our own float  in its place. The next morning the  foreign men-of-war were officially  notified that the city had beeu occupied and the port was open^ Of all  the foreign commanders, only Captain Chichester acknowledged the  notification by firing tbe national salute of twenty-one euns, with" the  American eosigu at the main."  In the confusions of a world war  the deepest and surest things mav  sometimes   be    confounded.    And  Take a Personal Interest  in Every Telephone  Gall  The . present ��������� widespread interest in telephone courtesy as a good-will builder has led  to many excellent suggestions from subscribers  for the improvement of telephone habits.  One of the most important rules that have  been developed and adopted by a number of  large business houses is: "Take a personal interest in every telephone call you handle."  To please a customer over the telephone  is a very different matter from pleasing him  over the counter. But it is not a more difficult  matter. '  Employees . who are encouraged to try to  "see" their telephone customers; who are  taught to give every call courteous attention;  and who are urged to avoid the abrupt, brusque  or perfunctory attitude that is so 'harmful to  good-will, soon become skilled in handling  telephone calls quickly and courteously.
