C, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1918  $1.00 PER YEAR  mit Them Within the  City Limits  Mayor Acres and Aid. Harkness,  Mcr\rdle, McCallum, McCabe, McDonald'and Scbnitter were present  at the regular bi-weekly meeting of  the city council on Monday evening.  Dr. Kingston addressed the council, and asked the board to make  a straight yearly grant to the Grand  Forkd hospital for the treatment of  city patients,  A   communication _.from  a Van-  . couver firm quoted prices for certificates to returned soldiers.  An application from the Salvation army for a grant was ordered'  filed.  A letter from the Trail board of  trade asked the council to endorse  a resolution urging the provincial  government to delay starting work  on the Christina Lake-Rossland section of the interprovincial highway  until the route had been located by  a- cempetent engineer. The communication tvus placed on the table.  The chairman of the finance committee recommended that the past  mouth's accounts be paid, and the  couucil concurred in the recommendation. The estimates had been  ��������� handed in loo late to be considered  at this meeting.  On motion of Aid. McCallum, J.  A. Hutton was appointed assessor,  and ihe assessment roll was made  returnable not later than May 13.  The chairman of the board of  works reported that he had been unable to.prepare his estimates for this  evening. The committee had met  and had decided to"* recommend to  the council the sale of the city team  and hire the team work during the  current year. During 1917 the  teamster and the maintenance of the  team had cost the city 81622. He  estimated tnat the team work required for the city duriug the present year would amount to about  $SiG. The proposal to dispose of  the team was therefore a strictly  business proposition. The council,  after discussing the matter, took the  the same view of the question.  On motion of Aid. McDonald and  McArdle, the chairman of the board  of works was empowered to sell the  city team, provided a reasonable  price could be obtained for it, and  satisfactory arrangements could be  made for a team to do the city work  aud for a team to be housed in the  fire station at night.  The chairman of the board of  works recommended that the wages  for city laborers be fixed at 37-t  cents per hour.  Approved.  The clerk was "instructed   to   call  tenders for a team to do  the .city's  team  work   and   for a   team to be  stabled in the fire hall at night.  The clerk was  instructed  to   call  i Lake property to' the  finance  com-  : mittee.    ,y  On motion of Aid. Harkness an.d  ' McCabe, the council-,.decided   to  install   a  power   meter in the pump  station.  ,The proposition that the city sell  _,.       n -in electric eooking and   heating  Btoves  UtV UOUIlCll  Propose tO Ad-  to ratepayers at cost in.order to sell  more power, again brought out an:  other animated discussion. Aid.  Schnitter was the most vigorous opponent of the scheme. He said he  was opposed to the city entering  into competition with the hardware  merchants. The recommendation of  the water and light committee "that  the city sell the stoves at cost, on  being put to" a'vote, was lost, and  on morion of Aid. McCabe and McArdle, the city electrician was em  powered to handle electric cooking  and heating appliances on a 10 per  cent profit basis, for cash, but if the  the hardware merchants are willing  to handle them on the same basis  they are to be "given the preference.  The chairman of the health anM  relief committee recommended that  the following rules governing the  keeping of pigs within the city limits  be adopted:  No person shall keep within the  limits of the city of Grand Forks  any hog3 without first having had  permission- given to him to do so.  Such permission may be given by  the medical health officer, subject to  the following regulations and restric  Spokane & B, 0. ..-'Railway  '  Swallowed Up Four Million Dollars  In the course of a lengthy article  dealing with, the wreck oi the Dominion permanent Loan company,  T,he Toronto News says in part:  A charter to build the Spokane &  B'.- C. railway, from Vancouver to  Spokane, state of Washington, was  the beginning of'disaster to the Dominion Permanent. The route outlined on the map would have opened  up a good country between Vancouver and Grand'Forks, B.C. The  work of building the road began at  Grand Forks. The line was completed four miles south to the Canadian boundary, and thirty miles inside the American Hue,to Republic,  Wash. The charter was acquired  eighteen years ago in the days when  the Hon. J. R. Stratton was directing the affairs of the Dominiou  Permanent.  The four miles of Spokane & B.C.  traclj, between Grand Forks and the  international boundary was sold to  she C.P.R.. The Doimnion Permanent retained and operated the 80  miles of Spokane & BJ^jradi from  the boundary to Republic. This 30  miles of track, plus two locomotives  and a few freight cars, is entered in  the books of the Dominion Permanent as an asset valued at ������1,000,000  "Mortgages and other securities,  $4,310,500."' This entry is recorded  iu the annual statement of the Do  minion Permanent for the year ending December 31, 1910. "Mortgages  aud other securities" are words with  a fine reassuring sound. The ''other  securities" are the Spokane & B. C.  railway, its charter, and its equipment, ������4,000,000. The $4,000,000  entry on railway account leaved  8310,596 to represent mortgages and  other securities, exclusive of the railway security. This 8310,000 has  now shrunk to a face value of  ������200,000 on mortgage account. The  best approximation of the assets  outside of the possible realization  from the railway is:  Mortgage, face value $200,000  cal health ollicer in cases  where the! R^alization value 50 cts. on  the dollar, or a total of...   100,000  tions  \ 1. No pig or pigs shall be kept  within^the distance, injijljrect^ue,  of 100 feet of any residence or  dwelling place.  2. Not more than one pig shall be  kept within the distance of 125 feet  from the nearest dwelling.  3. Not more than two pigs shall  be kept within the distance of 500  feet.  4. All pigs shall be kept in a  clean enclosure. All manure and  bedding shall be removed at least  twice a week, sprinkling with lime  during the warm -weather every two  days, and in cool weather at least  once a week.  5. It shall be the duty or the  medical health officer to report to  the city clerk at least once a week  the names and locations of all persons to whom permission has been  given during the previous week.  6. It shall be the duty of the  chief of police to inspect all premises  where pigs are kept . uuder permission, and to confer with   the  medi  tion can be stated in these words:  "The Dominion Permanent has  liabilities to depositors, debenture  holders and shareholders to an aggregate amount of S4,<150,700, and  aside from the Spokane & B.C. charter and railway the Dominion Permanent has only ������115,000 in raort-^  gages ond liquid assets to meet this  liability.".:  The Spokane & B. C. railway asset is not included in the calculation  that indicates 1\ cents,on the dollar  as all that the Dominion Permanent  will pay to depositors, debenture  holders and shareholders, , The debentures and shares are widely held  throughout Ontario. The Dominion  Permanent liabilities of $5,570,000  represent the savings of the people  of Guelph, London and other points  in Ontario to the amount of nearly  $4,000,000. The remaining 8570,-  000 is an excessive estimate of the  money deposited or invested with  the Dominion Permanent outside of  this province.  The B. C, and Spokane charter,  the thirty miles of railway, two locomotives, and a scanty equipment  of rolling stock is carried on the  books of the Dominion Permanent  as an asset valued at $4,000,000.  The situation of the depositors, debenture holders and sharehoulders  would not be desperate if the liquidator could hope to realize anything  like the lace value of the railway asset as it stands in the books of the  Dominion Permanent. The British  Columbia and Spokane charter from,  Vancouver to Grand Forks may or  _may not carry great potential value.

The article concludes as follows:"'  "The railway owned and operated  by the Dominion Permanent ia  credited with an investment, of $4,-  000,000, or $130,000 per mile of  siugle track. Inquiry will disclose  the truth as to how much of this investment is genuine. Inquiry into  the Dominion Permanent wreck can  not come too soon or be too searching."

The medical health officer may  cancel any permit which has been  granted for the keeping of a pig or  pigs within the city limits.  These regulations were approved  by the council.  The mayor reported that he had  made arrangements for a meeting of  the conservation committee on  Weduesday evening.  Mayor Acres reported having appointed ihe following committee to  look after the welfare of returned  sildiers:   W. J. Cook, F. It. S.

Meggitt and Collins gave  very interesting accounts of the convention at Victoria, held in January.  In answer to the letter-from the Institute secretary to the deputy min  ister of agriculture, Victoria, urging  the department to secure a supply  of seed grain to be distributed at  cost to" farmers needing it, Mr.  Scott stated that the department is  endeavoring to secure a supply, but  that as good seed grain is extremely  scarce, it may not be possible to obtain it. No doubt by the next meeting, which is to be held on Saturday, the 25th inst., at 3 p.m sharp,  information will be available for the  institute as to how seed can be  promised, and those needing it are  urged to be present.  The secretary was asked to write.  J. E. Thompson, M.P.P., asking  him to use all his influence' to secure for this valley a substantial  portion of the $500,000 appropriation which is being asked for at the  present session for irrigation purposes.  /;lt was stated that there is a considerable amount of land in the vaj-  ley which the owners do not intend  to work themselves this season, and  as it is desirable that every acre be  made to produce something, if anyone having land to rent will communicate with the Institute secretary, tenants can in all probability  be secured for the same.  straight in the line after we came  back to France from Belgium.

In France, where the government has taken  tbe entire wheat crop, only the poorest persons and those doing the hardest work may  have more than seven ounces of war bread���������  fourorfiveslic.es���������a day. And bread is the  main article of food with all classes in France.  In a recent address to a deputation of English agriculturists, Rt. Hon. David Llovd  George said that unless it were- possible to  supply with food the population behind the  lines, as well as the soldiers at the front, the  prospects of winning the war were remote.  "The enemy is not going to starve us; but  that is not enough," he declared. "We have  got to produce such a quantity of food that we  need not go into the American market and  snatch the food out of tho mouths of our  allies. If the allies care short it is because the  farmer is handling a rifle to defend his conn  try, instead of the plough."  L. J.

In the year before the war began the United  States imported toys to the value of $9,084;-  000, of which $7,718,000 worth came from  Germany. Last year Uncle Sam made his  own toys and had $3,000,000 worth to export.  There was no demand for the cargoes of toys  bought in Germany before the war and held  at Rotterdam awaiting American orders.

Between the vessels swings the  ' sweep wire," sunk to the necessary  depth in the'water by means of towed  kites���������woeden arrangements acting  on the same principle as ordinary air  kites. These wires can be regulated  to travel at. any depth beneath the  surface. When miues are caught they  are dragged to one side and are destroyed by rifle fire. If the bullets hit  the detonator the mine generally ex-  plodes at once; but if, on the other  hand, water enter the buovancy  chamber and floods it, the mine goes  to the bottom like a stone and becomes innocuous.  As the trawers themselves may  draw as much as twelve feet of water,  they may come into aontact with a  mine laid at or above that depth., If a  mine sweeper is struck and the re-  snltant explosion occurs forward in  the boys, it may keep afloat and  eventually be towed into harbor by  one of her consorts. If the detonation  takes place aufindship or in the stern,  however, it is unlikely that the ship  svillsurvive, and th������ men in' the en.  giue room or boiler room will proba  bly perish with the vessel.  in public, had passed away, The sergeant's little touch of comedy had  done the trick.

But 'e's a delicate bein',  and 'e doesn't like to be roared- at."  If you care for heavy hair-that glistens with beauty and is radiant- 'with  life; has an incomparable softness and  is fluffy and lustrous, try Danderine.  Just one application doubles the  beauty of your hair, besides it immediately dissolves every particle of  dandruff. You can not have nice heavy,  healthy hair if you have dandruff. Tin's  destructive scurf robs the hair of its  lustre, its strength and its very life,  and. if not overcome it produces a fever-  ishness and itching of the scalp; the  hair poots famish, loosen and die; then  the hair falls out fast. Surely get a  small bottle of Knowlton's Danderine  from any drug store and just try it.

There has just been  issued   a   map  of the European war  area that clearly shows every point of  interest that has been mentioned in  dispaches since the  Canadian   forces  first lauded in France.    It  has   been  made especially for the great Canadian   weekly, the   Family   Herald and  Weekly   Star   of Montreal, and is a  credit indeed to   Candian .enterprise.  It  is a  marvel of  detail and yet not  crowded.    Ifc   is   in   four'colors and  about 2Jx3-������'feet and folded   into   a  very neat cover, about  5x10   inches.  The map is surrounded by a border of  the   regimental    badges   and   coat of  arms   of  nearly'  every battalion that  left Canada, from   Halifax   to   Vancouver.    Every important .point  can  be recognized at once.    That  portion  of the map covering   France is   in a  soft color with  names   of   towns  and  battle scenes in   black,   easily   recognizable.    The map is endorsed by returned military experts as most   complete aud accurate in detail." The map  could not be produced, except in such  large quantities as The Family Herald  will   use, at  less   than  two dollars a  copy, yet it can    be   had    absolutely  free with The Family "Herald.  The publishers of The Family Herald and Weekly Star for several  months-back have been fighting hard  against the necessity of increasing  their subscription rates,' but eventu  ally had to come to it like most other  papers. The increase, however, is a  mere trifle���������twenty five cents a year,  making their new rate Si.25���������and  with the year's subscription they will  include a copy of this great war map  free of charge. This is certainly a generous offer, and one that Canadians  will appreciate. Many expected a  much larger increase in the subscription price of The Family Herald, and  are surprised at the small extra  amount charged.  The enormous circulation of The  Family Herald and Weekly Star  should be still greater when this offer  becomes known.
