 \1  Kettle Valley "Orchardist  SIXTEENTH YEAR���������No, 16  GRAND FORKS, B. C, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY ,10, 1917  81.00 PER YEAR  Pity  Council Will  Endeavor  to Lighten the Burdens of  the Housewife  Mayor Acres and all the aldermen were present at the regular  meeting . of the city council last  Monday evening.  A delegation  from   the  Patriotic  fund   consisting   of -Judge- Brown,  president,   and   E.   C.    Henniger,  ���������treasurer, addressed the council and  asked   for  a  grant from the city in  order to enable the fund to raise its  allotted portion of  $12,000  in  the  city.during the  current  year.    Mr.  ���������    Brown   went   thoroughly   into  the  work   of  the  fund, and stated that  the council   could  legally ��������� make   a  grant,    even   if  it had to raise the  taxation rate to do so.    The council  w> discussed the question at length. All  the members were willing to assist  ' the fund with a grant, if it could be  done by a practise of strict economy  in all the departments; but none of  them expressed a desire to do so at  the expense of raising the taxes, .because they did not think the ratepayers would take kindly to such a  proposition.  A eomwunicotion froth the'Salva-  tion army, asking for a donation,  was ordered filed.  A communication from the deputy minister of trade and commerce  suggested that the present acute  situation iu the paper market might  be eased ii every bod}' took pains to  save their waste paper.    .        .  A communication from the deputy provincial   secretary   announced  the appointment of A.   ED.   Webster  ;       and H. W. Gregory '���������as -police  and  licence commissioners.  A letter from Mr. and Mrs, C. C.  Heaven thankeri the conncil for the  resolution of congratulation adopted  by the council on the occasion of  their son being awarded the military  medal.  A communication from the  Princeton board.of trade, enclosing  a letter fr >m the Vancouver Auto-  flhobile club favoring the southern  route for the interprovincial high  way, was referred to the mayor,  with .authority to act in the matter.  . The clerk was authorized to pay  the city's membership fee in the  .Union of B.C. Municipalities for  the current year.  The estimates from the various  departments, together with the  school estimates, were referred to  the finance committee.  The past month's accounts were  ordered to be paid.  The clerk was instructed to inform the li. C. Telephone company  that the city has no claim against  the company on account of a recent  tapping done by J. F Km us, as the  council considered that this was a  transaction that properly belonged  to the company and Mr. Kraus  for adjustment.  The chairman   of the   water and  light committee   reported that there;  would be enough wire to take down;  iu the spring to extend the  lighting  and L. Maddison, and he recommended that this work be done.  The report was accepted,  ' Jle also stated that the fire department' had made a request for  material amounting to $250, and  that the chief had ��������� asked ,for two  free lights���������one in his room and  one on the porch. He recommended that $250 be placed in the estimates for supplies for the depart  ment, to be purchased from time to  time as-needed, and that -the two  free lights asked for at the chief's  house be disconnected from the  metre.    Approved.  The  water  and  light  committee  chairman  also   stated  that he had  discussed   with   the  city electrician  the question of furnishing 'the  citizens with cheap power for domestic  purposes.   Electrician    Spinks   was  present at the   meeting, and  fully  explained to the  council  how   this  system   works   out   in  Vancouver,  Spokane and other cities.    It would  not   be  a  very  difficult task to install, the spstem, and he felt   confident that the city could furnish con  sumers  with  power at 5c per k.w.  hour   and   derive   a   profit.     The  mayor and aldermen expressed ..the  belief that at this price quite a number of consumers could be  obtained  during the heated summer  months.  The  chairman   of  the  board of  works   reported   that, in   company  with the bridge   inspector,  he   had  inspected  the  Yale   bridge.    They  had   come   to   the  conclusion that  the    present   bridge   would   either  have   to be thoroughly trussed   up  or  an  entirely   new  bridge  bridge  built.    He  recommended that   the  former course be   taken, which  was  concurred  in   by   the   council, and  the'board was authorized to proceed  with   the work.    He  also recommended that tenders for lumber for  the current year be called for.    The  recommendation was approved, and  the clerk was instructed to  call  for  the tenders.  The chairman of the health and  relief committee reported that he.  had taken Mr. Hoadley to New  Westminster.  The mayor added the names of  Aid. Sheads, McArdle and Harkness to the returned soldiers committee. The committee was instructed to extend to'Pte. Symes,  who is expected to return to the  city in a few days, an appropriate  welcome.  Aid. McCallum gave notice that  at the next meeting he would ask  leave to introduce a bylaw; provid-  ing-for supplying consumers with  cheap electric power for cooking  and heating purposes.  PLEDGES  Members of Liberal Association Listen to Many In- -.  spiring Speeches   -  METEOROLOGICAL  At a largely .attended meetins of  the Grand Forks Liberal association,  in the board of trade rooms on"  Tuesday evening, J. E. Thompson,  member for this district, rencwpcl  his pre-election pledge that he intended to be the representative at  Victoria of all the people, Conservatives as well as Liberals, of this constituency.  Mr. Thompson was the  principal  speaker.    He went over all the matters that are likely to come before  the coming session of the legislature.  When the  present government   assumed,  office   it   was faced with a  huge-.overdraft, and today any reputable,.'* busiriesV,-..^     could  borrow  money aVohX'HiiiJyer cent less than  the province is forced to pay for it.  There had been a complete   change  in the land   policy under 'the   present   government.     Now   the   land  speculator  is  either  forced   to pay  his  arrearages  or   to relinquish his  holding.    In  foreshawing  some   of  the legislation likely to   be   brought  down  at   the  coming  session,    he  mentioned a  minimum   wage   bill.  He-would   give   this   measure   his  hearty- support, as  he was. of  the  opinion that it would   do  much   to  solve   the   Oriental   labor problem-  The   Ottawa   and   Victoria governments were working in perfect   harmony devising means as to  the best  treatment for returned soldieis.   Regarding  the  grant  for the district,  he felt confident that  Grand   Forks  would be treated as liberally as  any  constituency in   the  province.    He  had   aiready   asked   for more than  last  year's -grant amounted to, but  owing to present conditionshe anticipated that the estimates for all   sections of the province would   be   cut  down.    He closed   by   urging  the  people of the city to resuscitate   the  board of trade.  - Dan Paterson, of Phoenix, a returned soldier and former Liberal  candidate in this constituency, followed Mr. Thompson. Pie was  given an ovation on rising. He paid  a high tribute to Mr. Thompson's  worth, and said that he felt very  proud when he was permitted to  cast   a   ballot   for   him ''across the  best oratorSjin .Canada came^from.  Judging from the member's speech  this evening, there was every indication that he would sustain that  reputation.  The local speakers were President  McCallum, John Donaldson, E. C.  Henniger, .Frank. Miller and a number of others. ���������'  It was decided to to hold the annual meeting for the election of  officers on Wednesday February 28.  The president and the secretary  were appointed a committee to draft  a resolution of condolence to be forwarded to the family of the late  Hon. Ralph Smith.  UIT PACKING  H SCHOOLS  The Hon. .Dr. MacLean, minister  of education, in co-operation with  the Hon. John Oliver, minister of  agriculture, has made arrangements  authorizing the establishment of  fruit packing schools in certain of  the fruit growing sections among  fhe senior classes in the public and  high' schools. These will be con  ducted along the lines at present in  vogue with educational classes. The  formation of these classes is in the  way of an experiment, and, if found  beneficial and popular, will in future be extended to other districts  as the available funds' will- permit.  The schools will during the year  1917 be held at the following centres: Duncan, Haney, Grand Forks,  Creston, Penticton, Summerland,  Kelowna, Vernon, Nakusp and Salmon Arm. The classes will be held  during the school hours and the  course will extend over six days.  Full information with details of  formation and.organization of such  classes will be issued shortly.  Vancouver Auto Club Advocates That Route for In-  . terprovincial   Road  A public meeting, over which  Mayor Acres presideds was held in  the city hall on Wednesday evening-  for the purpose of taking steps to  counteract the resolution adopted  by the Assoc:ated Boards of Trade  at its recent meeting in Kamloops  favoring the northern route for the  interprovincial highway.  The mayor, in opening the meeting, stated that the question is of  vital importance to every town in  the southern portion of the province.  If j>the northern route by way of  Kamloops, the Yellowhead pass and  Edmonton is adopted every town in  the southern Similkameen district,  the Boundary and the two Koote-  nays will lose the automobile tonr-  ist traffic. The mayor read a letter  from the Vancouver Automobile  club. That organization is in favor  of the southern route, and the letter  suggested that all the town3 interested in having this route adopted  appoint a delegate, the delegates to  meet in Victoria at some date to be  named in the future, to set forth the  advantages of tne southern route  before the government officials.  Acting on this suggestion, Mayor  Acres, was chosen as delegate to  represent Grand Forks at Victoria,  and E. C Henniger was named as  alternate. It was decided to defray--  the expenses of the delegate by taking up a public subscription.

England highly appreciated  the loyal support of her overseas  dominions in this war, and nothing  was too ������ood for a Canadian in the  old country. The resources, in  wealth as- well as men, of Canada  had 'practically dumbfounded the  mother country. Mr, Paterson related several incidents that had occurred at the front, one of which  confirmed the report that a Canadian soldier had been crucified by  the Huns.  "I happened to be in town, and  as I know of no better company to  be found anywhere than at a Liberal meeting, I dropped in," said  W, S. Phillips, of Gilpin. Me spoke  at length. He had known the member's father in Pembrook, where the  Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Craig, of Re-  gina, visited at the home of Mr., and  Mrs. P. T. McCallum on Monday  last. They were en route to the  coast. Besides operating two huge  prairie grain farms, Mr. Craig has  a contract for supplying the Sas-  katcnewan government with telephone poles.  A general meeting of the Kettle  Valley Rifle ���������association will be held  in the city hall on Wednesday,  February 21, at 8 p.m., for the purpose of electing officers and transacting other business.  A Powerful Fleet  Lord   Beresford   described     the  American fleet as strong, serviceable  and manned by experts "who know  to fight."   He hesitated to express a  view as to what part America's fleet  would actually play, as   he   said it  would be arrogance for  a  Britisher  to attempt   to   say   how    America  ought to use it. But he knew America  and  its navy well   enough, he  said, to assert  with  assurance   that  the American navy would be of tremendous aid in bringing the war to  a quick end.  "America has a  splendid  navy,"  said   the  admiral.     "In its proportion as to units it is better than any  other afloat.   It may be just a   tritle  short of dessroyers, but it has many  other of the smaller craft with which  to    be   able   to   light  submarines.

OKFrCB:    COLU.M1J1A AVKXUE AND LAKH .STREET.  0  FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10,  1917  Mr. J.   E;   Thompson,  on  Tuesday  night,  emphasized the necessity of the resuscitation of  the Grand Forks board of trade in order that  the  district  might   urge   its   claims    before  the federal  and  provincial  governments, as  well   as  before  corporations,.:   with    greater  force.    The suggestion is a good   one.    It is  true  that  the  board   has  been resusifcafced a  number of times during the past twenty years.  After each revival it has flourished for a longer  or shorter period, then  gradually  languished  and finally dropped off into a comatose- state.  But while this has been the experience in the  past, there is no valid reason why the performance should be repeated  in the future.   If the  board is reorganized, arM5ifev,p^ds the pitfalls  that have engulfed  its^j predecessors, it should  become a permanent institution.^Too many of  the boards of trade in this city that have come  to an unlamented end have  merely been  adjuncts of a political party.    This of itself was  sufficient to condemn them.    An organization  of this nature, in order to attain permanency  in  a locality,   must be non-political.    Others  have had members who have used the  organization to further their personal  interests, to  the detriment of fellow-members in the same  line of business.

" A few instances might be  cited  where  the boards have come to grief through a  too  lavish expenditure of funds.    These  are the  rocks  against  which  former boards of trade  in  this  city  have  been  dashed.'   If the late  organization is   revived,   and   the   members  eliminate these mistakes by forgetting political parties when the interests of the city  and  district are at stake; banish thoughts of individual gains or losses when considering  questions of moment to the community as a whole,  and conduct the financial end of the board in  an   economical  manner,-there is no-apparent  reason why it should not prove a success and  reach a ripe old age.  -rcoom nouse a  Lots on Garden St.  Lots 100 feet by 300 feet deep; chicken coops, etc. Will sell cheap for  quick sale.

Ralph  Smith, minister of finance in the  present provincial goverment, died  last night shortly after 11 o'clock.  It was only on Saturday that his  condition, at no time last week con  sidered serious, had so improved  that he had expected to be back at  his office on_ Monday morning.  Early Sunday morning his condition  took a decided turn for the worse,  and the greater part of Sunday and  Monday he was unconscious, a con  dition in whichhe contiued to the  end. Euramic poisoning was the  cause of his death. .   i  At the bedside when the end came  were Mrs. Ralph Smith, their two  sons, Richard of Regina and John  of Vancouver, and their only daugh-1  ter, Mrs. Carr, of Victoria. Two  other sons, one of them a lieutenant  in 72nd Seaforth Highlanders, who  was recently wounded at the front,  were the only members of the im-;  mediate family not present.  strength during recent years.  Two hundred thousand trained  men is a small number as this war  goes. Canada has sent overseas  310,000 men, the.Canadian forces  seeing service in France up to the  end of the past year numbering  175,000. But Canada has a population of only eight million, yet all  told has contributed for army service, Canadian navy, imperial munition work and rese'rvists a total of  434,529 men. In the same ratio,  the United States should be able to  find atleast four"millions for service  overseas if it should come to actual  war with Germany.  Hotelmen Fined  The U. S.

According  to law the maximum strength' of the  regular army in recent years has  been limited to a maximum enlisted  strength of 100,000.

The cases came up before Magistrate Cochrane in the police court  yesterday afternoon. The proprie  tors of the Province and Grand  Forks .hotels were found guilty as  charged by Erickson, and the form  er was fined $100, while the latter,  owing to this being his first offencei  was let off with a fine of $75. The  case against the proprietor of'the  Russell house was dismissed, Mr.  Russell testifying under oath that  the only kind of drinks he had sold  Erickson had been soft drinks, and  Erickson admitted thac he was too  much under the influence of liquor  at the time he purchased them to  tell what they contained.

The best  results are obtained when the lips are very  close to the telephone. If the telephone  company designed its plant to permit of everyone speaking with their lips from six to eight  inches away from the telephone, the cost  would be more than doubled. ; Under such  conditions, Long Distance talking would be  impossible. Besides, the greater cost of the  investment would necessarily be met by the  telephone-using public.  The telephone is made to be talked into,  not to be talked at.

Parliament Buildings  Will Probably Be "Dry  With the opening of the coming  legislative session there will, in all  likelihood, disappear an old-time institution, which, while not owing its  existence to any legal enactment,  and more or less strictly speaking  being beyond the pale of the law,  has nevertheless proved one of the  unwritten mainstays of the provincial lawmakers.  The parliamentary bar, at previous sessions a place of rest and refreshment after many a strenuous  debate, is doomed, it is whispered.  The session will be, it is predicted,  a dry one.  Whether the abolition of the canteen will be ordered merely as a war  measure or will be made permanent  is a question. But at this stage it  looks very much as if the members  who require stimulant will have to  provide it for themselves.
