 a  1  Kettle Valley  Orcharciist  S XTEENTH YEAR���������No/11  GRAND FORKS, B. C, FRIDAY, JANUARY 12, 1917  $1.00 PER YEAR  LAST MEETING  OF OLDjDUNCIL  Health Officer'speport Received and General^Busi-  ness Transacted   k  Mayor Acres and Aid. Allen,  Donaldson, McCallura, Schnitter  and Sheads wer*- present at the last  meeting of the 1916 council- on  Monday evening.  C. M. Davidson, instructor 'of the  city band, was present, and asked  that the council carry out the tacit  agreement entered into early in' the  season between himself aod the city,  i. e., that the city pay the hall rent  for the band, ancLmake a grant of  850 to himseif as instructor, as a  recompense for the. public open-air  concerts given by the band. On  motion, later in'the evening, a grant  oLSoO was voted to Mr. Davidson,  '...ncl the finance committee was instructed to interview him regarding  the rent, the members being under  the impression that the council had  agreed to pay the same for only five  months.  M. J. Quinlivan, inspector of  dairies, reported that he" had inspected all the dairies in the city.  The larger dairies had been found to  be in splendid sanitary condition,  while the smaller ones were in fairly  'good shape.  Health Officer Kingston  submitted the following report for 191(3:.  "The year was an unfortunate one  for infectious diseases, notably for  measles and whooping cough.' There  appears to have been a wide spread  of both of these diseases, not only in  British Columbia but in some of the  other provinces, and in the state of  Washington as well. As nearly as it  was possible to keep a record, there  were between 79 and 96 cases of  measles in the city, with no deaths.  It has been very difficult to keep a  record of whooping cough cases, but  I would estimate that fully ICO  cases existed between' July 1 and  December 31. There were no deaths  from this disease.  "The city was fortunate iu having  but one case of scarlet fever within  its limits, which case was recovered,  and there were no cases of dipth  theria. There were a few cases of  chicken pox. The city was also fortunate in having fewer cgses of  typhoid than ever before in its history. There were five cases, with  one death. The fatal case did not  originate in the city, but was  brought in for treatment.  "Attention has been paid to the  condition of the dairies and to the  quality of the city's milk supply.  The quality of the milk has been, on  the whole, remarkably good. The  dairymen have shown a manifest  desire to conduct their business in a  sanitary way.  "The city dairy bylaw has had a  wholesome effect in improving the  condition of some of the small dairies in the city.  "The butcher stalls  in   the   city  were occasionally   visited, and were J  as a rule found to be clean and sanitary,  "There wcro twenty-five deaths in  the city during tho year, but eleven  of these were cases who resided at  outside points, but who were brought  into the city-for treatment."  The collector- of road and dog  taxes reported that 116 dog licenses  and 190 road (axes bad been collected. The report was accepted  and ordered filed.  The past month's budget ot accounts were ordered to-bo paid.  The chairman of the water and  light committee reported that' the  city electrician, the driver and the  city team were engaged in thawing  out water pipes at present. The city  electrician had stated thatth*? charge  for this work could be reduced to  $2.50,and he recommended that this  amount be made the regular price  in future, a* nether the thawing out  was done on the street or on private  property. On motion, this; recom  mendation was concurred in by the  council, and the electrician was  made responsible for the collection  of the fees for the work.  Aid. Donaldson stated that Vancouver city was. borrowing its own  sinking fund from the banks at a  low rate of interest, and he wished  to know if this plan could not be  worked here. It was the-opinion of  the other members that this system  would not be legal in this city, as  Vancouver is working under a spec  ial charter. ''..%  While the national highway was  under discussion the mayor suggested that the clerk send a letter to  the Penticton board of trade and  the council of that city, stating that  the Grand Forks city council has already endorsed a resolution adopted  by the above organizations favoring  the Penticton and Boundary route  for the highway. From the correspondence on the subject, it appeared that a strong effort is being  made to have the route changed  via Kamloops and a more northerly  course.  On motion of Aid. Sheads and  Donaldson, the clerk was instructed  to inform the Penticton council and  board of trade that the Grand Forks  council is willing to co-operate with  them in their efforts to have the  Pentlcton-Bouudary route adopted.  The temporary loan bylaw was  reconsidered and finally passed.  Mayor Acres thanked the members of the council for the hearty  manner in which they had assisted  him during the past year. It had  been a pleasure for him .to preside  at the meetings, and he hoped all  the old members would be returned.  Aid McCallum said more amicable relations had been maintained  among the members than ever before. It had been the most economical oouncil in the history of  the city, but economy had not been  practiced at the expense of needed  improvements, as the records  showed that the average amount of i  public work had been done during  the year. He paid a merited tiibute  to the ability and geniality of the  mayor, to which Mr. Acres made an  appropriate response.  Aid, Sheads said it had been the  most pleasant year he had ever put  iu as alderman. All the members  of the council had met the desire of  his committee for economy. The  council bad done very well, consid  ering the condition of the country.  He would like to see all the old  aldermen in the now council.  Aldermen IVlcArdle, Schnitter,  Sheads,  Harkness,  McCallum, Webster  At the nominations at the city  hall last Monday ��������� G. Tl. Acres was  re-elected mayor for 1917 by acclamation.  In the East ward Aldermen Mc-  Ardle, Schnitter and Sheads were  also re elected by acclamation.,  In the West ward Charles Bicker-  ton, John Donaldson, P. H. Hark-  bess, Neil McCallum and A. H.  Webster were nominated for aldermen.  The poll,taken yesterday, resulted  as follows:  P. H.Harkness.............'........   109  AH.

He intimated that the government would look  after those people in this country  who are making large fortunes out  of the war. He emphasized the  need of every man and woman doing all that was possible to help win  the war.   '���������  Burreli Thinks Conscription  Would Not Be Proper  Montreal,    Jan.    7.���������"I   do   not  think that conscription would be   a  wise or proper thing   to put into effect   in   Canada  today," said Hon.  Martin Burreli, minister of  agriculture, in   an   address   at St. James'  Methodist church   this   evening   in  connexion with an appeal in behalf  of national service.  He added, however, that he would not oppose con  scription if it were found   that  this  was   the   only   way   to preserve the  country's    liberties       Hearty   applause followed this  latter  remark.  Mr. Burreli said Canada   had   not  duties of an alderman, and be had  decided to slip out while the slipping was good.  Aid. Sheads paid a high com pi i  ment to the ability and courtesy of  the citv clerk, and he offered a resolution conveying the council's ap  preciation of the work done by Mr.  Hutton. Aid. McCallum, in seconding the resolution, said the clerk  had done splendid work, and he  was rightly entitled to tbe. efficient  assistant he had in the office. The  resolution was adopted [unanimously-  Mr. Hutton thanked the members  for their expressions of appreciation  of his work, and added that all he  had done bad always been from a  sense of duty, and with a view of  delivering the services for the  salary.  Aid. Donaldson said the mayor  had always conducted the meetings  in a pleasant manner. He congratulated the mayor and East ward nl  dermen on their re-election by acclamation.  Aid. Schnitter said it had  been a  pleasure to be in tbe  council.

FRIDAY, JANUARY .12,  1.917  A year ago the ratepayers of Grand Fork's  elected a very good city council, and yesterday they they repeated the good work.  The 19 L0 council gave the people a good,  economical administration, and it accomplish-  ' eda great deal in the way of public improvements. It relinquished oIliccMvifch the respect  of all' our citizens. The new city government  is fully equal to the old one in all 'respects,  and another year of steady progress in municipal impravement may be looked  forward  to.  Sir Thomas White, minister of finance, has  announced the first step   in   connection   with  his campaign  for  greater national saving and  the larger participation of the  general  public  in   financing   Canada's   war  expenditure and  furnishing imperial credits for the purchase of  munitions in Canada.    An issue of  war  savings certificates maturing in three years in denominations of $25, #50 and $100 will be created.    They will be obtainable on application  to any bank or postal  money  order  oilicc in  the Dominion.    The  prices  are  $21.50, $4o  and $80 respectively. That is to say.for every  $21.50 lent now to the  government  825   will  be returned at the end   of three  years.    The  discount of 83.50 constitutes a most attractive  interest return.    Provision is  made   whereby  the  certificates   may  be  surrendered  at any  time during the first thirteen   months  at the  purchase price; after  12 months,   but  within  24 months, at S22.25, and after 24 months,but  within 3(5 months, at ������2:3.25 for  every   $21.50  paid.    This means that the l6nger the certificates are held the higher will be rate of interest obtained.    The plan will give the generol  public   the   opportunity   of contributing   by  their savings to the winning of the war, and at  the same time encourage and promote individual rhrift and economy   throughout   the   Dominion. Such a result would be of of incalculable national benefit both for the present and  future, and would go far to  avert  the consequences of any  temporary  depression   which  might result through depression   of business.  A BIT OP PHILOSOPHY.  What's the use o' sighin',  Lettin' go your grip?  Why not put some stiifnin'  In your upper lip?  Get some ginger in you,  Don't set round and whine,  Rustle up your shirt sleeves,.  Stiffen up your spine.  Fortune's like a woman,  -   She will surely frown  If you try to court her  With your mouth turned down.  Why not try a whistle,  Just a bit of song?  Daylight sure is breakin'  Though the night be long.  ���������Florence Jones Hadley  Eng'rThos. Loftus  of tho "Twentieth  Cfiitury T.lmiU'il,"  Now York Central  X,ino:i.
