C, FRIDAY,   JANUARY 3, 1919       tifyfi^Rf^^     :*i.Q0 PER YEAR  1500 CASESLiOUO  HI  Records of G. P. R. Show  That During November  Shipments Arrived for  Prohibition Commissioner  Vancouver, Dec. 31.���������During  November, the C.P.R. brought into  the province two shipments, each  consisting of 700 cases of G. & W.  whisky, consigned direct to W C.  Findlay, one on November 4 and  the other on November 27, and on  November 5 there was a shipment  of 100 cases of whisky and several  cases of champagne, consigned to  the "prohibition commissioner."  These shipmehts came by freight  over tbe CP,R. lines, and are additional to the five carloads of liquor  which came by express,-billed en  route to Mexico.  At the whisky ring investigation  yesterday afternoon, G. L. McCrea,  local freight agent, produced his records since last July showing in detail all the liquor consignments  brought in by his company. There  were, of course, a number oL shipments consigned toJthe goAernment  vendor, in addition to those sent  direct to Findlay.  Tbe evidence went to show that  in marly every case there, was a  shortage when tbe consignment was  delivered. In one of the 700 cases  shipments there was a shortage of  75 cases, but no claim for this shortage was made to the C.P R.  Evidence was given that  the   express charges  on liquor brought in  by the ex press company  were   paid  by cheques of the   Western   Canada  Liquor  company.   A. L. Gartshore,  manager of that company, had been  subpoenaed to  attend  the   inquiry,  but bis  father-in law, Charles   Wilton,K.C, who is acting as his counsel, said that on his advice Gartshore  will decline to   give evidence.    Mr.  Wilson, who is a   former   attorney-  general of British Columbia,   claims  that the commission is invalid  and  its proceedings  illegal.   Mr. Justice  Clement stated  that a  bench   warrant   for   Gartshore's  arrsst will be  issued and will be served when  his  evidence is wanted.  Findlay   is   still   confinad iu the  Oakalla prison for contempt of court  posal of liquor within the province.  Frank M. Chapman, of tbe Chapman Motor Carriage company, told  of making two deliveries in New  Westminster to Thomas Freeman,  718 Agnes street./ There was one on  August 20 of two barrels of whicky  and two cases, and another on August 30 of five cases and a keg.  These came from the Western Canada Liquor company. He produced  his books, showing that the delivery  on August 20 was referred to as  "two barrels and two cases marked  oil." Further examination of the  books showed an entry on September 21 of "eight cases of medicine"  and another entry regarding ga case  of wine on October 31. Then there  was an entry on July 12 of "groceries" from the Hudson Bay company  to Shaughnessy Heights. Witness  remembered ihat was liquor. There  were other deliveries of "goods"  from the Hudson's Bay company to  I various addrtsdta ia Vancouver.  Witness testified that McGuin'  ness, ostensible owner of the "Mc-  Guinness warehouse," had been a  teamster in the employ of the West  ern Canada Liquor company. Mc-  Guinness is still being sought by  the police.  British Government Wil  Give $16, as Asked, for  Sockeye Salmon  shipped  so as to arrive by January  10.   Put the entry form in the package containing the  seed, or mail to*  Mr. Dalglish.  Frank Nucich, who has been employed by the city on street work,  died last Sunday night of cancer of  the throat.  WAR MATERIAL SURRENDERED BY HUNS  Forty airplanes, including, seven  Gdthas said to have : been used iu  the bombing of Paris, were accepted  on "Tuesday laat by the American  army receiving commission at  Coblenz. Two hundred machines  are now in Coblenz or on the way,  and all of them will. be taken to  France soon.  Each airplane must be in perfect  condition before acceptance, and  German aviators are being kept busy  testing them before acceptance.  Twenty-five hundred machine  guns also were accepted on Tuesday.  In taking all the canned sockeye  salmon prepared in Baitish Colum  bia, the British government will pay  $19,200,000 to fishermen on the Pa  cific coast. The British government  is taking 75 per cent of the output  at $16, the price asked by the vendors, and this practically accounts  for all the sockeye salmon.  The arrangement to take the commandeered salmon at $16 was come  to this week by the war purchasing  commission and the representatives  of the British government with the  packers. In the total pack are in  cluded.7500 cases of what are known  to the trade as pinks, and the price  on these is fixed at 50 cents a case  lower than for the sockeye.  Amos McAbee, representing a  Spokane pole firm, was in the city  on Monday, and purchased the remaining pole supply in the North  Fork district.  WINS MANY PRIZES  AT POULTRY SHOW  London, Jan. 1.���������German7 submarines which have been surrendered are being divided among the  allies, according to the Dai'y Mail.  The newspaper says that 15 go to  France, 10 to Italy, 7 to Japan and  4 to the United States. The U-boate  turned over to the Uited States are  said now to be on their way across  the Atlantic.  The newspaper does not specify  how the rest of the 127 surrendered  submarines are to allotted.  J. T. Lawrence has been attending the district poultry show in Nel-  Bon this week. ��������� 'Hg exhibited Rhode  Island Reds, "and won the prize for  UeBt pen in the show; 1st cock, 1st  and 2nd hen, Single Comb Black  Minorcas; best pen in heavyweight  varieties, Single Comb Rhode Island  Reds; best pen in parti- color varieties, Single Comb Rhode Island  Reds; best cock in show, Single  Comb Rhode Island Ileds.

Miss Irene Haverty, of Idaho, has  been spending the holidays at the  home of her brother, Charles Haverty.  Thomas McCune died Sunday  night at the home of his daughter,  Mrs. Dan O'Ray. The funeral was  held on Tuesday.  THANKS PEOPLE OF  PRI  Sir Arthur Gnrrie Replies  Message From Premier  Oliver  Sergt. Peter Barker, who returned  to Grand Forks last week after  spending four eventful years in Belgium and France, left for Vancouver  today to obtain his discharge from  the army.  Pte. Fred Brewer, who returned  from overseas last week, will leave for  Vancouver next Monday to be mustered out of the army.  Pte. Joe Galipeau, who has been  at the front for a couple of years,  returned from overseas yesterday  and is visiting at the home of his  parents.  Both   the   skating  rinks are now open.  and    curling  THE WEATHER  News of the City  J. M. Leamy, who is a son of Mrs.  Leamy, of this city, and provincial  electrical engineer for Manitoba, has  been appointed a member of the  lfgnite utilization board, which has  charge of the immense lignite resources of the prairie provinces.  Mr. Leamy was raised in this city,  and was city electrician of Grand  Forks for a short time.  The following is  the  minimum  and no further steps have been iaken | *nd maximum temperature for each  . day   during  the   past   week, as re-  to force him to give evidence. '  Further evidence dealing with the  five carloads of liquor brought in by  express and ostensibly destined  for Puerto, Mexico, was given at  yesterday's session. Inland Revenue  Officer Thorburn testified that excise duty amounting to between  $2000 and $3000 per car bad been  paid on this liquor, an unnecessary  proceeding if it was really exported.  But the department   had no  record  of it   being exported,  and   he   as How They Got Rich  sumed tha.t it was for home con- Mrs. Blank���������I could have married  sumption.

He  was on bis way from Vancouver,  where he was mustered out of thc  army, to his home in Idaho.  Last  Word in Democracy  The latest note in democracy has  been struck by Lady Petre in England.  She has decided that cobbling is  an industry admirably suited to  women, aud since the shortage of  leather has made the question of  footwear a somewhat vexed one she  has repaired all her own boots and  shoes, as well as those of her  family;  Lately addressing a crowd of  women workers she produced the  necessary equipment and neatly repaired several pairs of boots, including- soleing, heeling and patching.  Those women in the crowd whose  boots showed need of repair took  advantage of the "boots mended  while you ^ait" offer and went home  with water-tight footwear and food  for thought.  Victoria, Jan. 2.���������Premier Oliver has received the following message from Sir Arthur Currie:  "Your message, long delayed in  transmission, conveying thanks of  government and people of British  Columbia, is warmly appreciated by  all ranks of the Canadian corps,  more especially so bv those of us to  whom that province is home. We  have noted with pride that in men,  in gifts of.comforts and money, and  in moral support, British Columbia  has been worthy of her greatness.  "The consciousness of sturdy and  faithful support of those at home  has done much to create and maintain in the Canadian that fine fighting spirit and stern resolve to secure victory which has made it the  hardest hitting force in the field.  From the Rhine bridgehead we send  cordial Christmas greetings to our  fellow citizens. Wt hope that the  early consummation of a just peace  may soon permit our return home  to our people, frieuds aud peaceful  pursuits."  CUSTOMS RECEIPTS  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  tbe month of Docember,  1918:  Grand Forks   $   442.4G  Phoenix        491.4o  Carson         54.92  Total      $988.83  The soldiers who have returned  to the city during the past two  weeks were entertained by the Masons on New Year's night. A number of speeches were made and a  very pleasant evening was spent by  all those who were present.  Pte. A. Potentier, who has been a  prisoner of war in Germany since  the first year of tbe.late unpleasantness, returned to his home in this  city today.  After Grossing the Bar  "That's how we do things in the  army," said Tommy, pointing to a  news heading which more the words,  "Five Hundred Germans Drowned  in Champagne." "Got nothing to  beat that in the navy, I'll bet."  "Ob, haven't we," retorted his  scilor friend. "My lad, that's nothing to get excited about���������nothing at  all. In that last little affair along the  Belgian coast we sank three German  submarines in port!"  Hearsay Evidence  A group of old ladies were talking  while knitting on a verandah. The  conversation got around to how  much each weigutid at birth. One  old lady said:  Inspired Just in Time  The father of a family presented  himself at an emigration office and  asked for tickets.  "How many are you1?" inquired  the agent.

"Three of you, you said?" inquired  the man. "What about the chil,d���������  sex and age?"  "Boy; seven months."  "Profession?"  The father's eyebrows were raised  so much that they almost formed  Gothic arches on his forehead.  "His profession, I say?" repeated  the agent.

C,  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE ST11EET.'  FRIDAY, JANUARY 3, 191.0  STAND FIRMLY NOW  This is the clay when the man who would  be happy works undisturbed and unafraid.  The war is over so far as hostilities between  the central powers and the allies are concerned, but the war is not yet over between  the powers of right and an irrational aggregation, which, if it succeeded, would cause more  chaos in the world than could Germany-in her  most destructive moments    Bolsheviki?   Yes!  The 'word "BpFslie^'iki" originated in Eussia.  It means, "Thl^vno want the most." The  followers aimed to destroy the st#,te and divide the spoils, ancj JLitl'ging by the news from  .Russia today they have come -pretty, close to  destroyii% the state, but they have fovmd that  the spoils aren't much. There is an old adage,  'Thev who grab at too much-.shall lose all,"  and it would appear as if the'Bo'lsheviki were  victims of their own lust for greed.  Ponder for a moment on what would fie the  result if destruction"' was the main force, in the  world. Those A\ho favor such a policy do not  look ahead. They have not to look very far  into the future to see that to destroy, to do.no  work, to produce nothing, means complete an-  hihilationof existing tilings, even the destruction of themselves.    .  No better example of this can be seen than  in Russia today. Owing to circumstances, the  Bolsheviki had full swing. Aided and abetted  by the Germans, they destroyed and plundered. In the vast reaches of the country, where  grain was produced, men quit the fields and  went into the cities, for they reasoned there  was no necessity to work, since the rich man's  money was to furnish the means of subsistence. The policy has been in force but a few  months, and what is the result? Read any  newspaper you may pick up, the later the date  ���������the better, for the more harrowing will be the  details. Destruction has been followed by  starvation  and   today   death   is  stalking the  land.  "Begin nothing without considering what  the end may be," is a Persian proverb as old  as the hills. Before taking up tlie hammer to  knock and destroy, try and figure out what it  will bring you. Peace, contentment, prosperity, happiness? Hardly. But this is what you  wish for, isn't it? You want thc most? And  instead you get discord, discontent, misfortune  find misery. Yes, you do. Look at it square-  v and you'll see that not only is that all you  ���������get. but you get it in plentiful doses-. You  certainly will get the must, all right, and you  will net it in bunches.  Violence is the method of the Bolsheviki,  and nothing of a peaceful nature can oxi.-.t  where violence is. Willi violence is always  suffering, and after violence may have subsided, there is always distress.  ized labor. Thev must not be mentioned in the  same breath. Organized labor, stand - for production, not destruction.":, It denounces Bol-  shevikism. But there are weak members of  organized labor who are influenced by the appeal to lawlessness, men who take the other  man's word that the end will be satisfactory.  Wril.it?  If you're a white man, figure out where  your job will"be if any policy of destruction or  lawlessness' obtains sway. What is there to  look forward to, or hope for, if your occupation is gone and the occupation of others? We  are a cooperative community, each is dependent on the o-heiyand if one class stops work-  all must suffer. Unless we produce, we must  die. If we would produce, we must have confidence���������confidence in ourselves, confidence in  our fellowman, confidence in our country.  If there is anyone who seeks to destroy your  confidence, shun him, expose him, drive him  from tho haunts of men who would get the  most out of life!

During the last four years the pronunciation of unfamiliar French and : Russian and  Polish and German and Serbian names has  been a fascinating though confusing study.  Now that the French have reoccupied Alsace-  Lorraine, we discover fresh and unexpected  vagaries of pronunciation. According to the  ���������French practice the letter "t" in Metz is un-  pronounced; the city is -called���������nearly or quite  '���������Mess."  The "u" in .Strasbourg is also silent  ���������Stras-boor; and^-Ma!house is sounded as; if  it were spelled Mul ooze, with the accent on  the  last syllable,   as  indeed it  is   in   Stras  bourg.

Whether your house is heated by steam,  hot water or hot air, yon can maintain a comfortable temperature in it both day and night  by burning dry, hard^wood. The secret lies in  the proper regulation of the drafts. To check  the free access of air, which would cause the  fire to burn out, cover the grate with a sheet  of metal or a layer of ashes. If you wish to  quicken the fire, put on a small amount of  wood and open the drafts; but as soon as you  have the necessary heat, close the drafts and  add more wood. In cold weather pack the  wood carefully, but use less at a t:me.  The man who is always welcomed at home  is usually welcomed everywhere else.

AN EXTRAORDINARY  WAR JOURNAL  The Near Example  The master of a board school was  presiding over the reading lesson of  the third standarnd the other day,  whan a child whose turn it was to'  read came across the word "hire-  Hog."  "What is a 'hireling?'" asked the  teacher.  The boy thought for a moment or  wo,    and   Jhen   replied, "I  don't  know." Tbe questiou was next pro  pounded 10 the entire class,with like  result.  The   master  explained   the  m-suiing of the word as lucidly as he  could, and at' the conclusion of  his  expUnati"D   repeated the question  "Please, sir," replied the boy addressed, "you are a hireling because  yon are paid to teach us."  Why the Editor Left Town  It was because the following items  appeared in his paper: (.  "Mrs. Thomas W. Johnson read an  article for the women's entitled, 'Per-  One of the most extraordinary pa  pers ever issued is the Wipers (Ypres)  Times. Patrick MacGill, author of  The Great Push and other popular  books, and now a soldier in France,  describes its unusual beginning:  In the early part of 191.6 a major  and a sergeant of the British army  discovered an old printing house in  the city of Ypres. Part of the house  was blown into the street; the remain-  der was lying on the printing press,  and the type was scattered here and  there. The sergeant, who had been a  printer in private life, declared that  he could get the press to work if the  offieer would give him permission and  find help. Both were obtained. The  soldier dug the type out of the mud  and washed it, and somehow they  found paper and ink.- British officers  became journalists, printers' devils  and proofreaders. Soldiers in khaki  forgot hate of the Hun for the time  being and set themselves to work to  produce the Wipers Times.  They edited one number in a case  mate under the ramparts built by  Vauban ages ago; they produced an  other in the Cloth Hall; with the air  full of gas shells, Printers' devils had  to stand to in gas masks, and the editor had to correct proofs while a battle  was raging  This brave little paper has never  been printed outside the front area;  once the "works" were aboveground  seven hundred vards from the front  line. The strangest thing with regard  to this publication is that men who  were being bombarded night and day  could find time and inclination to  produce a paper written in such high  spirits.  Resolve to save during 1919.  Make 1919 a Saving, year.  Make 1919 a W.S.S. year.  Keep W.S.S. in mind.  Make a "Saving" Resolution.  War   Savings    Stamps   Promote  Thrift.  25c buys a Thrift Stamp.  Save by the W.S.S. plan.  ONLY WAY TO SCORE  A party of volunteers were taken to  the shooting range for the first time.  The men first fired at a target five  hundred yards away and not one hit  it. They were next tried at a target  two hundred yards away, and still  everyone missed. They were at last  tried at a target just one hundred  yards away, but no one hit it.  "Attention!" thundered the drill  sergeant. "Fix bayonets! Charge!  It's your only chance!"  GIVE "SYRUP OF FIGS"  TO CONSTIPATED CHILD  Delicious "Fruit Laxative" can't harm  tender little Stomach, Liver.  and Bowels.  Look at the tongue, mother! If  coated, your little one's stomach, liver  and bowels need cleansing at once.  When peevish, cross, listless, doesn't  sleep, eat or act naturally, or is feverish, stomach sour, breath bad-; has sore  throat, diarrhcea, full of cold, give a  teaspoonful of "California Syrup of  Figs," andi in a few hours all the foul,  constipated waste, undigested food and  sour' bile gently moves out of its little  bowels without griping, and you have a  well, playful child again. Ask your  druggist for a bottle of "California  Syrup of Pigs," which contains full  directions for babies, children of all ages  and for grown-ups.  NOTICE  Buy   War   Savings   and  Stamps.
