Returns for January Be-  TheGranby Consolidated Mining,  Smelting & Power company produced 3,156,486 pounds of copper  in January, according to a New  York report. This may be compared  with 2,955,450 produced in the previous month and is the largest since  September, when the production was  3,371,535 pounds. The production  in January, 1918, was 4,209,393, or  over 1,000,000 pounds more than in  January, 1919.    .  An estimate of the earnings in  January made difficult by declines  in the metal market during that  month, but some basis is provided  by the report for February, 1918,  when the price of the metal was high  and the estimate of earnings was in  the neighborhood of $400,0'.i0 on  3,843,686 pounds.  The production in January, 1919,  was made almost solely at the Anyox  smelter, where the costs are 10 to 11  cents, abound. ,.Xh:e..iprQ.d,uotipn by  pounds for the last thirteen mouths  at both srnelt-rs is contained in the  table that follows:  January, 1919 .'. ....3,156,486  December 2,955,450  November. 2,147,405  October 2,549,474  September 3,371,535  August.. . . . ......2,810,207  July 2,167,077  June.........  ..3,438,521  May 3 803,185  April 3,689,982  March ..3,807,600  February..... 3,843,685  January, 1918  4.209,393  available, to notijy the department of  soldiers' civil re-establishment, so  that men can be sent from the nearest  demobilization center to occupy them.  6.

Longest English Word  A subscriber asks, "What is the  longest word in the English language  that is defined in the latest edition  of the most -complete dictionary?"  The latest edition of the Standard  Dictionary says under "honorifica-  bilitudinity": "Honorableness; frequently cited as the longest word in  English literature." But this word  fs also found in one of the earliest  English dictionaries���������Bailey's, published in 1756. Anthropomorpho-  logically contains one more letter���������  namely, twenty-three,  Zigza^ers  "A police court isn't all grim and  sordid," remarked Judge White- the  other day. "Sometimes something  really funny happens. Not so very  long ago a chauffeur was brought in,  after having run down a man.  "Did you know that if you struck  this pedestrian he wonld be seriously  injured?"  "Yes, sir," replied the chauffeur.  "Then why didn't you zigzag your  car and miss him?"  "He was zigzagging himself and  outguessed me, your honor," was the  answer.  low Quota, But Better  Results Are Expected in  the Future  DUTIES OE "WELCOME  HOME" COMMITTEES  Ottawa, February 17, 1919.���������  The urgent problems in connection  with the demobilization of our army  and the re establishment of industry  on a peace basis have led to the formation of the repatriation committee,  in connection with which Harry  Bragg is now acting as the representative of the municipal organizations  of Canada.  The urban and rural municipalities  can play a great t?nd important part  in the problems of the demobilization  period in giving a "weloome home" to  the returning soldier and his family,  in helping the soldier to secure employment, and generally assisting him  to re establish himself in civil life  In every municipality that has sent  soldiers ovorseas the.ie should be an  honorary committee of citizens, composed of both men and women who  will assume a measure of responsibility  in this important work. The functions  of a "welcome home" committee  should be as follows:  1. To welcome all returned soldiers  and their dependents on their arrival  at their home.  2. To receive any complaints from  returned soldiers and to forward them  to   the   department,  of soldiers' civil  re establishment, Ottawa, for investi- | Rainfall  gation.  The Way They Work  "Have you auy alarm clocks?" inquired the customer. "What I want  is one that .will arouse the girl without waking the whole family."  "I don't know of any snch alarm  clock as that, madam," said the man  behind the counter; "we keep just the  ordinary kind-���������the kind that will  wake the whole family without disturbing the girl."  Wished He Was Present  "Well, that's enough to try the pa  tience of Job," exclaimed the village  minister, as he threw aside the local  paper.  "Why, what's  the  matter, dear?"  asked his wife.  "Last  Sunday   I   preached from  from the text, 'Be ye therefore stead  fast,' " answered the good man; "but  the   printer   makes   it read, 'Be ye  there for breakfast?' "  THE WEATHER  The returns for the first month of  the National War Savings commit  tee, British Columbia, were about  $25,000, with no returns from 271  units out of 587. The quota which  has been set for British Columbia is  $5,000,000 for the year 1919. This  means that the returns will have to  run to at. least $450,000 a mouth for  the rest of the year in order to reach  the quota. The committee, however,  points out that most of .the -month  was occupied by organization work;  that very few committees had been  formed: that most of the divisional  organizations were waiting, for the  conference which took placed on  February 4 and 5; that practically  no advertising was "done in the  newspapers, and that therefore under the circumstances the returns  are nothing to despair of.  The schools have only just started  their  educational    campaign,     but  they are showing great interest, and  the teachers are enthusiastic regard  ing the prospects.  Campbell Sweeny, the executive  head of the British Columbia divis  ion of the National War Saving?,  points out that the campaign is es  sentially one in which foundations  must be laid properly aud not one  which can be carried on spasmodically. The British people subscribed  815,000,000 weekly by means 6f 12c  stamps for their National War Sav  ings.  Another matter which has ���������" naturally handicapped the committee at  the start of the campaign has been  the fact that all the stores throughout tbe country have been engaged  in stock taking or with their January sales, which, of course, has prevented them from taking much in-  interest in the National War Savings  movement. The committee expects  that the returns for February will  be considerably better and show  that interest is being aroused and  that the people are determined to  get behind the country in this mqye  ment.of national importance.  iV ews of the City  A crowd of friends gathered at the  C.P R. depot last Saturday evening  to say good-bye to Mrs. A. Ardiel  and her daughter Lily on their departure for Vancouver, where they  intend to residewith a sister of Mrs.  Ardiel's. Mr. Ardiel has just recovered from a painful accident, but  is now able to resume his duties at  the Anyox mines. Their daughter,  Gladys, is attending normal school  in Victoria. The Ardiel family  has resided in Grand Forks for  seventeen year3.  Mrs. M.Dompier, aged about 35  years, died at her home in this city  on Wednesday moroing of influenza  after a short illness. She is survived  by her husband and seven children,  the youngest of whom is only about  a month old. The family has re������  sided -in the city for a number of  years. The father of the decased  arrived here a couple of days before  she passed away.  GRAND FORKS   B.

Min.  18  29  The bureau of census at Washing  ton has published the statistics for  forty-six large cities, with a total  population of 23,000,000, which  show that from September 8 to November 9, inclusive, 82,360 deaths  occurred from influenza and pneu  monia. Normal deaths from these  causes for the same period would be  4000, leaving approximately 78,000  deaths attributable to the epidemic.  From this it appears that the deaths  occurring in the forty-six cities with  The Kettle Valley train that  started for Lynch Creek on Wednes  day did not.reach.ii8 destination, as  there is so much snow on the track  that the engine was unable to find  tbe rails and finally strayed away  from them.

A Ritchie,  who have been carrying on a garage  business in Greenwood, have dissolved partnership and in future  the business will be conducted by  Mr. Ritchie.  New York, Feb. 17.��������� The sudden  cessation of buying for war .use has  caused an accumlation of copper  metal said to be in excess of a billion pounds in the United States  alone, while there is no buying of  moment for peace uses at the present time. As a result, although copper is nominally quoted at 18 cents  a pound, it is understood that con  siderable quantities have been offered and can be had at a lower  figure. The whole copper industry  is upset by conditions, which are  said to be so bad that it is believed  that the metal will be depressed in  price for at last a year to come. It  is the history of all wars, however,  that so much copper is diverted  from peace uses to war needs that a  shortage exists for many years after  peace is restored, and there is no  reason to believe that copper will  continue in a depressed state for  morecthan a few months.as the price  cut will undoubtedly cause buying-  to replace the waste of the metal in  the war.  Mrs E. F, Laws left on Wednet*  day for Calgary to join her husband.  They will open their theatrical season in that city in a few days.  From a letter received by a friend  in this city, it is learned that Pte.  Hussey, who is uow in Vancouver,  will return to this city for a short  visit about the 24th inst.  The Duke's Wit  The Grand Duke Nicwolas, who  is said to have been sentenced to  death, was a great soldier. He had  the heartiest hatred for cheats and  rogues of all kinds. Early in the war  he met some army contractors by  appointment. The interview was  brief. 'Good morning," said the  grand duke. "If any one of you  cheats me I will hang him. Good  morning." He had a quick way, too,  with Rasputin, fakir and faker.  Risputin came to the grand duke  aud informed him that Our Lady  had appeared to him two nights before and ordered him to tell the  grand duke lo make peace with Germany. "That's odd," said Nicholas.  "Our Lady appeared to me last  night and said you were coming.  She told me to kick you out of the  room." The grand duke put the order into execution! But the next  day he was exiled to   the Caucasus.  The medical health officer reports  the influenza situation as being  somewhat improved.  Several of the largest copper producing plants in British Columbia  have, it is understood, dropped  most of their exploratory and other  non pressing work for the present,  awaiting a settling dowr. of the copper situation.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1919  SITUATION IS)CRITICAL  pETER WRIGHT; who is on the Pacific  ������������������'.. coast just now, is known to labor throughout the world. He is chairman and trustee of  the Seamen's and Firemen's Union of Great  Britain, and is in America to outline the action and the reason for tl\is aotion of the body  which he represents. ,-....  lie speaks as a laboring man, but he looks  beyond the clefficulttes of the present and sees  the: time when conditions will have become  settled and employee and employer understand each other thoroughly. He says: "I  have absolute confidence that within a short  period the whole of the industrial democracy  will find its level and ultimately find its ������>'oal  in bringing the whole of society to its normal  equilibrium."  How will this come about? Here is what he  advises: "There must be a recognition of  brotherhood, and in every state' of "society, in  every industrial organization there must be a  recognition that love in future must be the  predominating factor." He further explains  that the man who labors and the man who  finances the industry must come together in a  spirit of fraternity and start on the lines of readjustment.  What suggestion could be more reasonable?  These are very critical days, and conditions  have altered the whole aspect of the labor  situation. If ever employer and employee had  to get together it is now. Each should consider the question from the standpoint of the  other, for it stands to reason that unless one  helps the other, both must suffer.  Brute force was never productive of anything but trouble. It may win an advantage  temporarily, but it loses in the end. That is  why Peter Wright says: "We can not go back  to the brutal methods of strikes which we have  been -Bccustomed to in the past. It is up to  labor to see that the new form of autocracy  under the name of Bolshevism is not going to  be the predominant factor in bringing i?bout  the old regime iu a new guise and form."  He is apprehensive lest all that labor won  during the past four years will be lost by precipitate action. He knows the labor situation  as it exists, not only locally in British Columbia, but throughout America and Europe, and  as an observer on an eminence sees what is  threatening each section.  He issues the warning: "Agitators have  seized upon the present industrial crisis, which  is an artificial situation created by the war,  without any regard to its artificiality. They  are not concerned with the fact that this  economic situation is artificial and is directly  antagonistic to the interests of the workers  themselves, and that any attempt to sustain  such a condition must be followed by an economic breakdown."  That is pretty plain. He sees danger ahead  if readjustment is attempted by either party  on an arbitrary basis. He lias a comprehensive  knowledge of the situation, and he sees a way  clear so that the crisis may be safely passed.  j������nt it must bo on tlie get-together basin, he  points out, and he has strong convictions regarding* thc power of cooperation.  Never has there been .such an excellent opportunity for thc. ,'igirator, ;nv\ bociiise of lh;ii;,  strong labor leaders' like Peter Wright have  never come out with a straighter message. In  a recent interview, after reviewing what had  been won during the war by labor, he tells  where the danger lies:  "In Britain and her dominions there has  been utter lack of education. In consequence,  the intelligence of the younger workingman  has been only sufficient to grasp certain dogmatic ideas without being able to analyze.them  or follow them through to their logical conclusion. Dogmatists have been able to work  on this limited intelligence and inflame it  against established order. . . . We must reason along proper lines, we are going backward  and not forward, and backward under present  conditions is a return to barbarism."  Mr. Wright says he tries to view the situation from both sides. lie sees the ultimate  public good, the benefit to the state by cooperation and brotherhood. He has in- mind  the injunction-, "Bear ye one another's burden," which never before in the world's history  is being more the basis of operations, whether  it is Consciously or unconsciously.  "Sheer materialism will never get anywhere  in the reconstruction of the world." He says  further, "Practical?idealism is one of the most  necessary things to tne bringing about of a  better relation between--capital and. lobor."  Which means, studv first what is best, and  then cooperate w*th anyone who would help  in attaining that end.  f-  :=^  Do.not tay to fit your eyes with cheap spectacles.

Little exceipt a few stories of daring individual exploits has been told of the activities of  the American Indian in the late war. The  part played* by the Indians in the war was  not confiued to occasional spectacular adventures. Ten thousand Indians, most of whom  volunteered, served in the American army and  navy; Indians bought $15,000,000 worth of  Liberty bonds, not counting the fourth issue,  and thousands of war savings certificates;  they contributed liberally to the Red Cross,  and���������tell it not at the camp fires of Geronimo!  ���������made 100,000 hospital garments for the  soldiers and sailors.

SYNOPSIS  OF  LAND ACT AMENDMENT  Pre-emption now confined to surveyed  lands only.  Records will be granted covering: only  land suitable for agricultural purposes  and which is non-timber land.  Partnership pre-emptions abolished,  but parties of not more than four' may  arrange for adjacent pre-emptions, with  joint residence, but each making necessary improvements on respective claims.  Pre-emptors must occupy claims for  five years and make improvements to  ���������value of {10 per acre, including clearing  and cultivation of at least 5 acres, before receiving Crown Grant.  Where pre-emptor in occupation not  less than 3 years, and has made proportionate- improvements, he may, because  of ill-health or other cause, be granted  Intermediate certificate of improvement  and transfer his claim.  Records without permanent residence  may be issued provided applicant makes  improvements to extent of $300 per annum and records same each year. Failure to make improvements or record  same will operate as. forfeiture. Title  cannot be obtained on these claims in  less than 5 years, with improvements of  $10 per acre, including 5 acres cleared  and cultivated, and residence of at  least 2 years.  Pre-emptor holding Crown Grant may  record  another  pre-emption,   if  he  re-  ?[Uires land in conjunction with his  arm, without actual occupation, provided statutory improvements made and  residence maintained on Crown granted  land.  Unsurveyed areas, not exceeding 20  acres, may be leased as homesites;  title to be obtained after fulfilling residential and improvement conditions.  For grazing and industrial purposes,  areas exceeding 640 acres may be leased  by one person or company.  PRE-EMPTORS' FREE GRANTS ACT.  The scope of this Act is enlarged to  include all persons joining and serving  with His Majesty's Forces. The time  within which the heirs or devisees of a  deceased pre-emptor may apply for  title under this Act is extended from  one year from the death of such person,  as formerly, until one year after the  conclusion of the present war. This  privilege is also made retroactive.  TOWNSITE PROPERTY ALLOTMENT  ACT.  Provision is made for the grant to  persons holding uncompleted Agreements to Pufcha.se from the Crown of  such proportion of the land, if divisible,  as the payments already made will  cover In proportion to the sale price of  the whole parcel. Two or more persons  holding such Agreements may group  their interests and apply for a proportionate allotment jointly. If it is not  considered advisable to divide the land  covered by an application for a proportionate allotment, an allotment of land  of equal value selected from available  Crown lands in the locality may be  made. These allotments are conditional  upon payment of all taxes due the  Crown or to any municipality. The  rights of persons to whom the purchaser from the Crown has agreed to  sell aro also protected. The decision of  tho Minister of Lands in respect to the  adjustment of a proportionate allotment  is final. The time for making application for these allotments is limited to  the 1st clay of May, 1919.
