Officials Discussed the Ques  tion, But No Definite  Action Was Taken  being moved as long as there is any  prospect   of   the smelter resuming  operations.  Mr. Peters   made  it quite  clear  that no matter where the paesenger  , station is finally located, the freight  'yards would remain where thev  are  and that frieght would   be   handled  from the West end... I  "Tell me what you Know is true:  , 1 can guess as wel! as you."  $1.00 PER YEAR  3-HOUR SP  F. H.   Peters,   superintendent  of  the  Brithish Columbia  division of  the C.P.R, W. 0. Miller, divisional  supsrintendent,    Engineer   Soames  and a large number of Grand' Forks  citizens   were   present at a special  meeting of city council   Wednesday  evening, when the proposed  change  in the location of the C.P.R. passenger station was discussed. Not much  headway was made, though   we be-  Heve that all   parties  came a little  "closer together than they were  prior  to the meeting.  Mr. Peters stated that the company had not intended to move the  station to .Cuprum in order to evade  -taxation, but simply in order to  avoid maintaining two bridges across  the river, and as the one now used  for passenger traffic is nearing the  end of its life, the'company natur-  :aIly-:wi6hed..to'dosomethin^prett<  Pathfinder Tunnel  A E.

Mr.  Savage stated   the tunnel  is now in  about sixty feet, and that three men  are employed cm the works. A compressor and boiler are now lying  on  the   dump   ready   to  be installed.  When   these   have   been   installed  greater progress in driving the   tunnel will be made.

The  company  had done  a great deal of  business  h re, and they   expect  to  continue  to do much business here, and were  therefore anxious to meet the wishes  of the people here if  they   possibly  could do so.    If , the citizens could  agree upon   a location whereby   the  new steel bridge could be  used,  the  company would be willing to build  the   station   inside  the city Jimi-s.  The comaany, he said, had also considered moving the  steel   bridge  to  the passenger spur-and run freights  and all other trains through the city,  but he did not   think   this   would  prove acceptable to the citizens.    If  the  station  is built at Cuprum, he  said, it wvill be called  Grand Forks.  It was  intended   to  expend  about  $.35,000 on the building.  Some one suggested that the site  oo this side the steel bridge near the  foundry would be a good location  for the station, and Mr. Peters appeared to be quite willing to consider it.  The city's side of the case was presented by Ala. Hull in an able and  i-npartial manner.   He spoke in fa  the charge levelled against   him   by  G.   S. Hanes, Liberal  member  for  North Vancouver, .that he had   permitted   assets taken  over from tbe  P. G. E. interests to  be retained   by  those   interests.    He  went into the  subject  at  length,   stating that following the failure to  serve   General  Stewart   in- England   with the writ  ssued by the   province  against  the  P. G. E. people, he had  threatened  to bring down legislation at the next  session  permitting  the govercment  to take over any railway which had  defaulted   in  its obligations.    This  threat, he said, has made  the  com  pany throw up its hands   and agree  to come to a settlement.under which  the assets of the P. G. E. .Equipment  company and.the P. G.

Much   valuable information  has bean accumulated on   the subject  of root seed production, the   more so  bcecause, while engaged in seed grow  ing as an emergency undertaking,  the  experimental   farms'-   system  at   the  same   time   desired   to  gain   reliable  data   bearing  on   the   possibilities of  making root seed   growing a   permanent agricultural industry in Canada.  One of the more important subjects  in conuection with root seed  growing  which  have baen  investigated is the  question of under what conditions the  heaviest possible seed   yields   may be  expected. .This question is   of  course  .of.. particujar^interejtj^as., Jt,b^_sizezq������;  the-seed yields will largely determine  the profit from seed grown.  In the first place,   it is   necessary  that  Tbe mayor and all tbe aldermen  were present at the meeting of-tbe  city council on Monday night. No  businass of an important nature was  transacted.  A  communication  from  W.   0.  Miller in reference  to  the   visit  of  Supt. F. H. Peters   was  filed.    Another one from Vancouver,offering to  buy old machinery  and generators,  was referred to the water and   light  committee,  and   a third from Vancouver, bearing on subject of the refunding of the city bonds, wis filed.

In the second place, the seed roots  should be planted as early as possiblo  in tbe spring. The earlier they are  set out the heavier are the seed yields  which may ue expected.

C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND.' LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1920  In his one-minute talk rat the public  meeting Wednesday night H. C. Kerman took occasion to cast an undeserved slur on the western section of our city.   He led those present  to  believe that  Columbia had   been merged  with Grand Forks as an act of charity on the  part of the latter city, and that Columbia had  a tremendous bonded indebtedness at the time  of amalgamation.   We have heard these  misrepresentations made to newcomers by a few  citizens���������who appear to b^ determined to keep  alive the old sectional animosity at all hazards  ���������so often that we are weary of hearing them  repeated. We were here when the amalgamation of the two municipalities was efiected,and  we remember the events in connection with it  as clearly as if they had happened  yesterday.  In the first place,   Columbia  was  not "taken  in" (not even if we accept the slang meaning of  the phrase) by Grand Forks.    Amalgamation  was effected by a vote of the electors of the two  municipalities.    Secondly, Columbia's bonded  indebtedness prior to the union was not "tremendous."   It was,  in fact,  lower than  the  indebtedness of   Grand Forks,   To  equalize  the indebtedness of the two towns,in  proportion to the assessed valuation of the property  in  the two municipalities, Columbia was allowed to issue debentures for public improvements.    From   the proceeds  of the sale  of  these debentures the water and light systems  were extended  to Columbia;  sidewalks and  the West end fire hall built.    These improvements were made' to equalize the  bonded  indebtedness  of the two  towns at the time of  amalgamation.   Since  that time, if we except  the monev expended on improvements ia "Little Eholt," which is largely a creation  of the  people of the lower town, only a few hundred  dollars have been spent on improvements in  that   section   of the  city   which at one time  comprised Columbia.    A large portion of the  balance   of   the funds available public improvements has gone to enhance the value  of  Mr. Kerman's mammoth one-storey business  block. The West end has never made any objection    to    this.      Mr.     Kerman's    tirade  showed that he can be ungrateful  as well as  vindictive.  ,< <-LJELLO, MARS !  Yes, this is the earth���������.  -*- -*-   The Sun Man of Grand Forks speaking.  "Say, Mars, I haven't anything of an important nature to talk about this week, and I'll  let you do the speaking. The bottle I ordered  last week arrived on schedule time, and I am  well supplied at present. With an abundance  of such Nectar, I don't blame the gods for  getting'gay'occasionally. On this planet everything that had a 'kick' in it has now pretty  well disappeared. The last bloody war over  the liquor question is nowf being fought between the 'wets' and the 'drys: on the islands  down in the Antartic ocean, and it is beginning to look decidedly blue for the 'wets.'  "What! You haven't anything to say? You  know we , have got this line leased for five  minutes per week, and we have to pay for it  whether we use it or not. Let us imitate a  couple of middle-aged ladies who, in olden  days, when the w're phone was a novelty, frequently spoke over a busy line for five or ten  minutes without saying anything. Let us use  up our allotted time by speaking without  wasting any grey matter. I will start the ball  rolling, as they used to say at the ping-pong  games, by relating an original puzzle joke.  This style of humor was first introduced by  me, and it is now becoming quite pppular.  "Some years ago a friend of mine entered  my office in very high spirits. When I asked  the cause of his hilarity���������he was really hilarious���������he said; 'You know that for some past  I have been paying court to Miss Blank. A  few days ago I penned an offer of marriage  and despatched it to her. Today I received  her answer. Let us go out and celebrate the  event.' This happened in the days when joy  could be obtained over the bar, and I consented to accompanied my friend. After a  short interval I ventured to asked him when the  marriage would take place. He turned on me  abruptly, and repeated, almost fiercely: 'Marriage ! There will be no marriage���������I am celebrating her refusal, not her acceptance. From  the very moment that I despatched my offer  I realized that I had made a mistake. Her  answer has made me the happiest man in the  world.'  "The puzzle, my dear Mars, is to find out  upon whom the joke was, and upon whom it  might have been, provided there .really is a  joke concealed in the above incident.  "Yes, you have made a good guess.  "We still have a few minutes to spare before our time is up. I wish you would either  deny or confirm the story of the ancient, scandal of the sky, involving your patronymic, the  fierce god of war, and the queen of love, on  which occasion, as sung by the Grecian bards,  the slow and halting Vulcan is reported to  have trapped the guilty pair in a steel cage, to  the infinite amusement of the other gods.

MONEY-MAKING  CROPS FOR THE  COLUMBIA VALLEY  [expebimkntal fakms note.]  In theso days of high prices the  farmer is apt to specialize on certain  crops that yield large returns, without  considering the question of maintain  ing soil fertility. The object and aim  of every farmer should be to increase  his margin of profit and at the same  time render his farm more productive. This can best be "accomplished  ly following a definite crop rotation.  The rotation or rotations adopted will,  depend largely on the iine of farming  fallowed, and to some extent   on   the  character of the soil.  Thejollowing money making crops  are especially recommended for the  Columbia valley, and they are easily  udapted.to a four, five w sixVyear ro  ���������tutioh."'

It is an old  saying that a man is known  by the  company he keeps.  When you join the ranks  of  the advertisers you join the  ranks   of   the   biggest   and  most successful   merchants  and  manufacturers   in   the  world.  How many large concerns  can you name  in any  large  city in the country?    Name  them   and you   will   notice  that  all are big advertisers  v and all are leaders in   their  'lines.    Ask your friends   to  name  the   most   successful  merchants they know in the  big  cities, and in  each case  the name ot a great advertiser will be mentioned.  The same rule is, true of  smaller cities and towns.  The successful merchants  are the advertisers. The  advertiser stamps himself as  one having confidence in  himself and his 'wares, as  one proud of his calling and  seeking publicity and the  test of patronage.  d$  Joisa til������ Ranks ���������������  Successful Adves*  K-M't  iJ;S)^a-feij  Bill   h y@  &l  ' nJ)  I THE   SUN.

Prime red clover seed was quoted  at $35.55 per bushel on the Toledo  market of the 6th instant. Toronto  prices then ranged abont S3 per  bushel in advance of Toledo prices.  Clover seed that would grade  "prime" -in Toledo could be bought  in Toronto at $38 50 and, because of  exchange conditions, delivered to  United States points at approximately $33 per bushel, or about  $2 50 less than the Toledo price.  The money situation, short supplies,  and an earlier demand in the United  Sates will explain the heavy exports of clover seed.  The price of red clover seed has  advanced almost S14 per bushel on  the Toledo market since May last.  The world supply will not be sufficient to meet normal requirements.  In these circumstances, Canadian  farmers who delay the purchase of  their red clover seed requirements  until seeding time may be unable to  obtain supplies at any price.
