C, FRIDAY,   FEBRUARY 7, 1919    ^^isaS  (now ia true:  I as you."  $1.00 PER YEAR  Public  Meeting   Favored  /   Drinking   Fountain   to  Perpetuate Memory  of  Veterans  A representative and fairly well  attended public meeting was held in  the Empress theater on Tuesday  evening for the purpose of ascertaining the sentiment of the citizens  on the proposal to erect a suitable  memorial to perpetuate the memory  of those who fell on the field of  houor in the Great War, as well as  to those who serw-ed overseas and  were fortunate enough to return.  Acting Mayor Miller called the  meeting to order, and Mr. Smythe  was voted to the chair. A resolution that a memorial be erected was  unanimously adopted.  A resolution was offered that the  memorial be in the form of a drinking fountain at the Bridge street entrance of the post office. This proposal was approved after it had been  thoroughly discussed. Other forms  of memorials were also proposed,  but they did not seem to meet with  much favor.  It appeared to be the sentiment  of the meeting that the $400 that  now lecuairis in the machine gun  fund should be diverted towards defraying a portion of the cost of the  memorial.  was considerable suffering on account of food shortage, but in  France supplies of all kinds were  plentiful, and neither the. soldiers  nor the civilian population suffered  any hardships for lack of food  This was accounted for from the  vast stores of supplies shipped into  the country. The French people,  he said, did not seem to mind the  shell fire of the contending armies,  and they carried on business as  usual almost on firing line. Nearly  ail of those who did business near  the front had become immensely  wealthy, as the soldiers were free  spenders and paid any price asked  for goods. They made it a ruie  never to go into the trenches with  any money on them.      '  DEVELOPMENT  DURING 1818  Resident Engineer Free-  land's Report on Min-  in^Pro^ress in This District During Past Year  PERFECT ATTENDANCE  Death of Mrs. E. Vant  Mrs. Eva Irene Vaut, wife of  Erntst Vant, died at the Grand  Forks hospital at noon yesterday  of typhoid fever, after a short ill -  ness. She recovered a short time  ago from influenza, which had  weakened her constitution to such an  extent that.shewas unable to combat  the last malady. She was thirt}T-nine  years, live months and eight days  old, and was raised in Nelson. She  is survived by her husband and a  seven-year old son. The family  moved to Graud Forks from Nelson  about three years ago, and during  their residence here the deceased  has been highly esteemed by a large  circle of friends for her many admirable womanly qualities. Tbe bereaved family is tendered the profound sympathy of the people of  the community.  Mr. Walton, father of the deceased, arrived in tbe city last night  from Nelson. The remains of the  late Mrs. Vant will be shipped to  Nelson next Monday for burial.  Experiences of a Soldier  Pte. Fred Daly, of Phoenix, who  enlisted in this city, returned from  overseas on Saturday. Mr. Daly  went through some of the hardest  fought battles on the western front  without receiving even a scratch  from the Hun shells. He exhibited  a photo of himself just as he was  coming out of a trench. He did not  look as neat and clean as he usually  does on dress parade.

In Bulletin No. 1, 1919, being a  preliminary review and estimate of  the mineral production in British  Columbia during 1918, which has  just been issued by the department  of mines at Victoria, Philip B. Free-  land, resident engineer, with head  quarters in this city, makes the following report of the progress made  in Grand Forks mining division  during 1918:  Union Mine.���������One hundred and  fifty-three tons of gold ore was  shipped to the Granby smelter at  Grand Forks. The bonding of this  property was considered by eastern  American capital, and also by a local mining engineer representing  American capital. Neither of these  organizations was able to satisfy the  demands of all the owners of the  mine.  Maple Leaf. ��������� The   lower   tunnel  was driven   about   sixty   feet   and  some copper   sulphides   have been  encountered, disseminated  through  the rock.    A good deal  of interest  was centered in this  property   early  in   the  sumoier  owing   to the fact  that the presence of   platinum   was  detected in the old upper workings.  The   imperial  munitions  board, of  Oitawa, seut  a  representative   into  this   locality   during  the  summer.  The results of this investigation  are  not forthcoming at the present time,  but will no doubt appear in   reports  made   by the munitions board at a  later date.  Rock Candy Group.���������This claim,  siiuated on Kennedy creek, a tributary to Granby river (North Fork of  Kettle), has been bonded by the  Consolidated Mining and Smelting  company of Trail. Considerable  development work has been done by  this company by diamond drilling  and tunnelling to prove the extent  of the deposite of fluonte. A road  has been built into the property and  the construction of an aerial tram is  under way. The high price of iiuor-  ite (fluorspar) has made the ox-  ploitatiou of this deposit possible.  The company has shipped 100 tons.  Molly Gibson. ��������� This mine has  been worked by the Molly G bson  Minning company, of Rossland, for  some months. A tunnef was driven  approximately 200 feet, with the intention of tapping an ore shoot evident in a shaft above.  this property during the summer;  9381 pounds of high grade silver  ore was transported by pack horses  to the end of the wagon road, and  from thence by wagon and railway  to Trail smelter. Development is  continuing this winter.    ,  B. C���������This property was leased  to I. St. Claire, of Eholt, and about  2250 tons of copper ore has been  shipped.  Mastodon Group, Cascade.���������This  group produced approximately 800  tons of chromite ore, carrying from  30 to 45 per cent chromide oxide.  The ore bodies lying in small lenses  made development work difficult  and expensive.  Emma Mine���������Approximately 20,-  000 tons of low grade copper ore has  been shipped from this mine during  the past year. Development work  consisted of 171 feet of shaft sinking, 50 feet of pockets and stations,  1220 feet of drifting and crosscutting,  and 363 feet of raising. This property is owned by the Consolidated  Mining and Smelting company,  Trail.  Greenwood Mining  Division  Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smeltiug & Power Company, Phoenix.��������� About 444,500 tons of copper  ore was shipped from these mines to  the Grand Forks smelter during the  year. This tonnage is below that oi  1917, chiefly owing to smaller ore  bodies and their increasing distance  from the center ot operations." Sickness caused by Spanish influenza  created a shortness of labor and a  reduction in tonnage.  Canada Copper Corporation.���������The  Mother Lode mine operated steadily  until about the end of November,  when the Canada Copper Corporation ceased operations at their  smelter at Greenwood. About 163,-  382 tons of ore was shipped durfng  this period. The Sunset mine has  also closed. About 2797 tons of ore  was shipped.  Cariboo Mine, Camp McKinney.  ���������A. Savage and Leo Mader, of  Grand Forks, obtained a sublease on  the tailings from the old mill. Under great difficulties they erected  two concentrators below the dump,  also a small Pelton wheel. The  early drought so diminished the  supply of water that they were  obliged to install a gasolene engine  to run the concentrators in place of  ihe Pelton wheel Notwithstanding  these difiiculties, about 9 tons of  concentrates was shipped to the  Grand Forks smelter.  The Consolidated Mining and  Smelting Company of Canada did a  considerable amount of work upon  its holdings in Camp McKinney dur  iDg the summer. A continuance of  some of the quartz Iead3 were uncovered, showing a fair amount of  mineralization.  In the fall the West Kootenay  Power    company   established   two  START  ON IRRlGATiON  Farmers' Institute Committee Hopeful That  This Spring Will See  Work Under Way  A particularly well attended meeting of the Farmers' Institute was  held in the farmers' room in the  court house laBt Saturday afternoon.  A number of reports, all very interesting, were presented.  H. W. Collins gave his postponed  annual address, which was quite  lengthy, being full of suggestions  for the bringing together the ranchers of the valley and learning more  fromone another. He also brought  up the matter of a suitable memorial to all our boys who went overseas at the call of duty, including  those who made tha supreme sacrifice, those who were wounded, and  those who were fortunate enough to  escape scathlese.  J. T. Lawrence gave a most encouraging report on the prospects of  work being started on the irrigation  project this spring. He had been  appointed a committee of one to interview J. E. Thompson, M.P., and  be had had a confarence with that  gentleman on the subject. He had  also had an interview with Mr.  Biker, the government engineer  who has the matter in hand.  Mr. Collins, as director, and Mr.  Lawrence as delegate of the Grand  Forks Fruit Growers' association,  gave full reports of the convention  of the British Columbia Fruit Growers' association, held last month at  Penticton.  The Institute secretary was instructed to make a list of those having good seed of any kind for sale,  and send lists to all the institutes in  the district. If those having seed for  sale will write or phone the secretary the variety, the quantity and  the price at once, it will probably be  to the benefit of buyers and  sellers.

Then why go  back on it, when some one should  make  the  suggestion that you are too good for your job?  Has no one made that suggestion to you? Perhaps  not  personally    and   direct,   but   the  chances are you have had it insinuated to you  more than once on printed page or in  speech.  It  is  not probable 'that any man will come  along and say you had better quit���������yeu would  doubtless laugh at him. Instead, the innuendo  is insidious, until one day you realize you are  dissatisfied, and you think it is yourself that  is at fault.    The  trouble is qn the outside.  Think about what you hear, analyze what you  read, do  not allow  anyone  who has no personal concern about you to make  suggestions  to you one way or the other.  Perhaps your experience is like mine. When  I was  merging  from  a  boy  to a youth my  father  thought  it about time I was getting  into a job. I Was perfectly willing,  for  ready  money always looks good to a boy.    I knew I  could get a job right away, but he said no, I  .-. must learn a trade.  :       l"The job  you have your eye on," he said,  "pays good wages now, but they never get better, and you never learn anything that will be  capital to you in later years.   Do not think so  much of the present, look ahead.    When you  . you are learning a trade, you may not make so  much money as at a transieut job, but twenty  years from now you will have your experience  and your ability as capital, which will bring  '    you good returns."  He was right. Your father was. right. How  did you learn your trade? By sticking to it for  three, five or seven years, not by going from  one town to another, or quitting one boss and  starting with some one else. It never entered  your head in those days to give up what you  had, and although conditions may not have  been absolutely to your-order, still they were  not so bad.  If your job was worth sticking to for years  so  that you could  learn it, is it  not  worth  sticking to  now, since you have expended so  many  years  in   bettering yourself?    Keep in  mind the same idea you had when- you started  to learn your trade���������look ahead.   It is just as  important  now  as  then to keep your eye on  the future, and if you maintain a steady front,  are faithful in the performance of your duties,  the time arrives when you can capitalize your  faithfulness, your contiuued industry and your  integrity.    In- the  old days you  learned the  mechanical part of your trade, since then  you  have been developing its greater .possibilities.  Agitators know how to bide their  time  in  seeking to dislodge you.   You  are  the  man  they want, the man who is known to   be  reliable,  for  they  are  able to use you as an example  when  getting at others.    They do not  come at you with a threat, but rather  with a  smile.    They  get to know you, they get into  your union, on your committees, and gradually  you begin to realize that a new  thought  has  come into  your life. You wonder if you have  been a bonehead  all your life that you have  been  working the way you have.   True, you  have got ahead, you have  saved   money,  you  have  a  happy   home   and  family, but never  did  you "realize  that  something was wrong.  Nothing is wrong. The world is all right,  but watch out for the stranger who would associate with you. Watch out for the pernicious  sentiment that radicals would disseminate.  Your daily outlook���������and your daily output,  too���������depends on your condition. If you feel  well, everything looks fine. Study those with  whom you mingle. Sort out your reading  matter.    Feel well.  Look ahead to the time when your acquired  knowledge will be of greater value to you  than ever���������stand by your job and keep on  learning.  fz  s%-  EYETABKS  Do not tjy to fit your eyes with cheap spectacles, Usually  the lenses "are ground defective, and will perhaps, be -+he  cause of a great deal of harm.

D.MORRISON  JEWJBLER AND OPTICIAN  GRAND FORKS, B.C.  ^:=  J  NEW GUINEA  New Guinea, or Papua, is an island of Australasia, the .--largest in the world except  the Australian continent, from which it is  separated by the shallow island-studded Torres strait, 80 to 90 miles wide at its narrowest  part, about the meridian of the York peninsula. ItTis divided politically between Germany,  Great Britain and the Netherlands. Dutch  New Guinea consists 152,000 square miles,  with a population of 200,000; British New  Guinea, 90,000 square miles, population 350,-  000; German New Guinea, 100,000 square  miles, population 356,000. In the late war  Australia conquored German New Guinea,  which was officially known as Kaiser Wel-  helm's Land, and the Australian delegation to  to the peace conference made a strong claim  for annexation of the territory to Australia,  but the claim has thus far been ignored in favor of the internationalization of all the conquored colonial possessions of German.  Most of the interior of New Guinea is still  a terra incognito. It is essentially a mountainous and even an alpine region, being traversed  in its entire length by lofty ranges, by far the  highest in the Oceanic world, and in some  places rising 200,0 or 3000 feet above the snow^  line. The Arf'ak hills in the northwest pehin,1  sula, 10,000 feet high, are continued in the-  central region by the Charles-Louis range,  which for nearly 300 miles appear to maintain'  au altitude of about 14,000 feet.. The northern coast range, known as tne; Finisterre  mountains, 11,500 feet, terminates eastwards  in an imposing headland projecting in the  direction of New Britain, and enclosing Huon  gulf on the north side. Other ranges are the  Gautier and Cyclops mountains, and the Snow  mountains, with Mount Wilhelmina, 15,800  feet, in Dutch New Guinea.  rand Forks Transfer Company  DAVISS HANSEN, Proprietors  City Baggage and General Transfer  Goal and ^ood For Sale  Office at R-.-F.

And Every Dollar  Worth More,  Urban Verbs  Dr. Samuel Schwab claims that the  oldest good story is the one about the  boy who left the farm and got a job  in the city. He wrote a letter to his  brother, who had elected to stick by  the farm, telling of the joys of city  life, in which he said: "Thursday we  antoed out to the country club, where  golfed until dark. Then we trolleyed  back to town and danced until dawn.  Then we motored- to the beach and  Fridayed there." The brother ou the  farm wrote back: "Yesterday we  bnggied to town and baseballed all  afternoon. Then we went to Ned's  aud pokered till morning. Today we  muled but to the cornfield and gee-  hawed till sundown. Then we sup-  pered and then we piped for a while.  After that we staircased up to our  room and bedsteaded until the clock  fived."  News of the City  must have been walking very Care"  lessly. I am a very careful driver.

Boiled Down  Corporal Bilkins had arrived in  France   after a few days in England."  ���������'How much money have you got  left?" asked Corporal Wilkins  "Well, I've got four shillings, a  quid, two farthings, nine pennies, a  franc, half a pouud, four sous and  fifty centimes, but I've only got two  dollars iu cash."  Handing It Back  American tourists who are shaky  as to their French have often been  embarrassed by the voluble replies  which their carefully studied phrases  bring forth from French, lips. Just  now. the tables are frequently turned,  and the Frenchman or woman is puz  zled by the fluent American vernacu  lar. An example:  Yankee Trooper���������Parly-voo English, Mademoiselle?

Thrift  NOTICE  A SOLDIER'S PRAYER  R. H. Carley, of Montreal, who  well known here, was in the city on  Saturday.  There seems to be many rumors  in Spokane regarding the Granby  smeller in this city, but until something of an authoritative nature is  known no good purpose can be  served by repeating them.  The 8633 commission on Victory  bonds iu Rossland was donated by  the canvassers to the Red Cross of  th-it town.  The trackhiying gang on th'  branch line between Princeton and  the niillsite of the Canada Copper  Corporation at Allenby reached their  destination last Friday.

Lord,please grant with my slumbers  To ksep my cot upon its lumbers;  May not peg or guy rope break  To drop this tent before I wake.  Keep me safely in thy sight,  Grant no fire drills in the night,  And in the morning let me wake" ���������  Breathing scents of sirloin steak.  Deliver me from all work and drills,  And when I'm sick don't feed  me  pills;  If I should hurt this head of  mine,  Don't paint it with iodine.  In a snowy feather bed  Fondly I long to lay my head,  Far away from all camp scenes  And the smell of half-baked beans.  Take me back into the land  Where people walk without a band,  Where no thrilling bugle blows  To let you know "the sun has rose."  God, thou knowest all my woes,  Give me back my civilian clothes.  Take me, I'll promise then  Nevar to enlist again.    Amen.
