C, FRIDAY,   JANUARY 17, 1919  "Tell me what you Know is true:  I can guess as well as you."  81.00 PER YEAR  Wm. Thomlinson Makes  Ail Exhaustive Report  on His Investigations in  North Fork District  "I certainly consider the matter  worthy of detail research on the  part of the government or the large  mining corporations," says Wm.  Thomlinson with reference to platinum possibilities in Franklin camp  in.a letter. Mr. Thomlinson is ore  sampler and collector for the Canadian resources commission and made  two visits to the camp last summer,  spending a week on the second occasion.   He says:  ''Geo. C. Mackenzie, member and  secretary of the Canadian munition  resources commission, has authorized me to make .public the following information regarding the tests  for platinum made on the material  taken by myself durine the month  of September last from mineral  cliams situate on the"so called Black  Lead in Franklin- camp, Grand  Forks mining division.  "Early in the   month of August,  under   instructions   from Mr. Mac  kenzie, 1 visited Franklin,camp - and  took samples from the various workings   on   the   Maple  Leaf  mineral  claim, and sent the samples   to the  Dominion assay office at Vaucouver  to be assayed for platinum.   Two of  the   samples   Irom   the Maple Leaf  claim taken from an open cut from  which   two  cars of  copper ore had  been shipped, were  found   to   contain, respectively, 0.15 oz and  0 17  oz. of platinum per ton, and  the re  suits appeared to me to indicate that  the platinum content of the ore was  roughly proportionate to the amount  of   the   primary   copper    minerals,  especially chalcopyrite,   showing in  the ore.  "Later J. J. O'Neil, of the Dominion geological survey, visited the  Maple Leaf claim with me,and being  much interested in the mode of  occurrence of the platinum, he took  a sample of almost pure chalcopyrite  occurriug as a small lense in the pyr  oxenite, and had the tample assayed  for platinum at the Dominion assay  office at Vancouver. The sample  showed a content of 0.38 oz. platinum a ton.  "The mineral-bearing gangue on  the Maple Leaf claim is mainly pyr-  oxenite, with some tongues or inclusions of Augite-syenite on the hanging wall side of the lode, and the  copper minerals, principally chalcopyrite, occur in bunches and vein-  lets, and as disseminated specks,  throughout the pyroxenite and  syenite.  ''Owing to the good results   from  the Maple Leaf samples and   noting  that   the   pyroxenite   zone or   so-  called Black  Lead  extends   almost  entirely across the Franklin camp, I  obtained permission from   Mr, Mac-'jan  kenzie to remaiu in the camp   until:  I bad visited and sampled all of the ���������  principal properties situate   on   the  pyroxenite-syenite contact zone.  "On most of the claims situate on  the pyroxenite forming the Black  Lead, the lode material appeared to  be barren of economic minerals, but  on several of the claims there could  be seen, at or near contacts, a ten-  ! dency for the copper or iron sulphides to form mineralized belts or  masses.  "Most of my samples were taken  from places where such segregations  of copper and iron sulphides oacur-  red, and especially from where copper bearing minerals were in evidence; although the oxides and sulphides of iron were also included in  the samples.  "Although most of the samples  taken, on being assayed, showed appreciable amounts of platinum, it  can not yet be stated with certainty  that more than very small portions  of the Black Lead or pyroxenite belt  can be mined on a commercial basis  "In the samples assayed there appeared to be certain proportions between the copper-bearing minerals  present and the platinum contents;  but at the Mountein Lion claim the  platinum appears to be entirely associated with sulphides and oxides  of iron,  "Whether the platinum occurs in  the ore as native platinum or sper-  rylite.the arsenide, of platinum, has  not yet been determined; but I presume it may be the latter form, and  associated with the sulphides and  oxides of copper and iron where  they are found segregated in the  pyroxenitez one.  "On several properties such as  the Gloucester mining claim, situate  near to and on the tip of the pyroxenite zone, platinum may also be  found to be associated with the sulphide ores and perhaps it may be  advisable to have all of the ores of  the entire camp tested for the metals  of the platinum group.  "There is, however, still much   to  be learned regarding the mode of oc  currence of the platinum, and  as to  the   average   value   of the material  forming the so-called Black Lead.  "It is probable that only certain  portions of the pyroxenite zone contains platinum, copper or other metals in economic amounts; therefore  much further investigation may be  required, but I certainly consider  the matter worthy of detailed research on the part of the government  or of the large mining  corporations.  "Samples from the undernamed  properties contained platinum as  follows, viz:  "Maple Leaf���������3 samples, 0.15,  0.17 and 0.38 oz.  "Luckly Jack���������3 samples, 0.04,  0.06 and 0.08 oz.

Dear Sir:-���������I am writing to make  a protest against a certain portion of  a circular letter I received recently,  and also to pay a tribue to Dr.  Acres, who has given us such splendid service as mayor of our town  during the past three years.  At the outset I want to make ' it  clear that I am a strong prohibitionist and a supporter of Mr. Liddicoat on his record as a police commissioner, even if I do not agree  with all his methods. I admiren  him for his courage in coming out  as prohibition candidate in the first  place, when he must have known it  would effect his business to some  extent at least; but I must enter a  protest as a prohibitionist and a citi  zen of Grand Forks at the attack on  the mayor in his circular ietter.  It is equivalent to saying that Mayor  Acres is supporting the liquor inter  ests.'> It:ia a. stroke bolow - the helt,  as he has no opportunity of defend  ing himself. lam a strong advneat-  of fair play, and such tacticts are  manfestly unfair. Furthermore,they  will not help the cause of prohibition, but hurt it.  At the Farmers'   Institute   enter  tainment on Wednesday   evening  I  listened to a very severe censure on  the citizens of   Grand Eorks for not  being   public   spirited   enough   to  come out and run for aldermen. But  can   anyone   blame   them?    What  thanks do they get for   good,   con  scientious   work?      This    circular,  placed in the hands of every citizen,  is a fine tribute to Dr. Acres  for the  splendid work he has  done during  the past three years   I have been  a  resident   of   Grand   Forks   now for  sixteen   years, and   he is  the   best  mayor we  have  had   during   that  time. This is not my opinion   only,  as I have frequently   heard  it  said  by others, and only  this  afternoon  was very much pleased to hear   one  of our oldest   and  most   respected  citizens, and a strong prohibitionist,  say:    "I have participated in   civic  affairs a good deal and followed them  very closely for many years, and in  my opinion Dr. Acre'!   is  the   best  mayor we have ever had."-   Coming  from the source  it did, this   is   an  especially fine rribute.  From talk on the street   I   have  gethered that  there has  been considerable friction between Dr. Acres  and  Mr. Liddicoat   on  the   police  commissioners board over  tbe  suspension of the chief of police.    It is  a question of  Mayor  Acres   having  exceeded   his   authority   when  he  made the suspension.    To  a   fair-  minded citizen who has the dignity  of the law and the city  at heart,  it  25 is immaterial who   suspended   him.  23 That he should have been suspend-  ��������������� ed there is no question of  a  doubt;  and   whether   it   was done by the  tion was this: The man we are paying to act as guardian of the law,  broke the law. No matter what the  pjovocation was, he broke the law.  Had he found an ordinaay citizen  doing wh������t he did he would have  promptly arrested him for brawling  and creating a public disturbance.  That would have been his duty, and  for what he is receiving his salary.  Had he not been suspended we, the  citizens of Grand Forks, would have  been placed in the undignified posi  tion of having as guardian of the law  and to enforce the observance of the  same, a man recently guilty of break  ing the law. This fact would be  bound to become known, and unfavorably commented upon, in  which case we wonld have been indignant, and the very first thing we  would have done would have been  to censure the mayor for allowing  us to be placed in such a   position.  The chief was very fortunate in  the verdict he received. I am not  criticizing the verdict in any way,  b.ut the fact is he was fortunate,  because many a man has to pay a  fine or go to jail for the very same  offense; and when it comes down to  placing the blame for this present  undignified situation on the police  board, it primarily rests on his  shoulders. If he had simply done  his duty, which the citizens are paying him to do, the cause of all the  trouble would never have arisen.  I want to   make   it cleBr   before  closing that this letter is- the   direct  result of tbe circular issued- by   Mr..  Liddicoat.    I have no wish "Co'' get},  into priut or to advertise   our civic1  quarrels; but after three such splendid years' seivice as   Dr. Acres  has  given    us as mayor,   I   consider   it  would be a pit-grace to  the   citizens  of Grand Forks if we allowed him to  retire from office without protesting  against this slur ou   his reputation,  and I am confident   that   all   fair-  minded citizens will agree with me.  Clinton A. S. Atwood.  LAST MEETING  OF 1318  L  Council Decides to Oppose the Extension of  Power Sought by  Gascade Company  the  Min.  7  15  Editor Crrand Forks Sun.  Dear Sir.���������I wish you would be  kind enough to give the following  statement space in vour paper:  1'ii'a report in  the  Grand   Forks  Gazette   of   the   proceedings   of   a  meeting held by the police commissioners on   Monday night   last, one  important fact was omitted. In stating that I had written to  the  attorney-general personally, exception is  taken that I did not   tell  the   city  clerk about it. The report does  not  state that I took the letter   to   Commissioner   Liddicoat, and   that   he  read   it   over and thought it was a  fair and square letter,  and   he did  not object to my sending it.   Knowing this, he at the next   meeting of  the commissioners moved   that  the  city clerk write a letter to the attor-  neJJ-general.    I do not think that it  was necessary for me to discuss my  letter with any one except  Commis-j  sioner Liddicoat, particularly as   he  saw fit to have another letter drafted  by a person   who  did  not see  the  matter iu the same way that  I did.  G. H Acres.  The last meeting of the 1918 city  conncil was held on Monday evening  last. All the members were present  with the exception of Aid   Schnitter.  C. F. Harrigan made implication  for the position of city scavenger, and  on motion he was given the appointment.  A communication from the fire department stated that a stovepipe in  the Grand Forks Meat Market was  maintained contrary to the fire limits  bylaw. The Clerk was instructed to  notify Davis & Co. to conform to the  regulations of the bylaw.  A communication was read re-  spscting the property of Chas. Burke,  which was sold at last year's tax sale.  It was shown that this party was in  the overseas service, and the council  decided to restore the property to the  owner on payment of taxes and costs.  A letter from H. L Mackenzie  dealt with the taxes of the Grand  ^orks Townste company. The mayor  informed the council that the services  I of J H. Ryley had been secured to  ^collect these taxes, and the "council'  by resolution sanctioned tlie action of  the finance committee in securing Mr.  Ryley's services.  The application of the Cascade  Watar, Power & Light Company,  Limited, ro the provincial legislature'  for an exteusion of power was discussed at length. The council decided  to lay the matter before our member,  J. E. Thompson, and the other members of the board, and to urge them  to oppose the extensions asked for.  The medical health officer's annual  report was read, and the same was ac  cepted with the exception of an obvious error.  Mayor Acres address the council  and congratulated the aldermen on  the good showing of their work during the past year.  r PRIZES  Local   Poultry men   Were  Successful at the Provincial Show  War  Thrift.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 17, 1919  EVOLUTION OF WAGES  D������  yoa remember the old story of the -man  who killed the goose that laid the golden  egl^sT Of course it was a. fable, but it was  promulgated to emphasize what might easily  happen if there were such geese who laid such  fine eggs, and such ganders who wanted to  hog them all in a hurry. Even as a youngster  you-laughed-at the story, for it seemed ridiculous to think that any man could get all the  eggs he wanted in one fell swoop. It was a  funny story.  The humor of- it is again coming home to  many. You will have, read in the papers of the  action iii Europe of certain uncontrolled elements in society who are attempting" to grab  all the money in sight so that they will have  enough for themselves and their children's  children, even after the gross amount 'is apportioned among those faithful to the cause?  A fine haul, some men have admitted in their  own minds. But is it? In some instances, the  seizure has been made and what has happened?  Is the old story of "The Goos^- That Laid the  Golden Eggs" a fable? It would appear-that it  only exemplifies a common human failing, for  the supplement of that story is, "He that  urabs at too much will lose all."  It's a strange world, i ut the' same characteristics are prominent in the race todav that  were paramount hundreds of years ago when  people were less civilized, that is, less civilized  in our opinion. The Proverbs of Solomon apply as truly today as they did in the year 1000  B.C. Read the history of any people and you  will find that in each there are ups and downs  where one section thought that the other section was enjoying all the happiness and all  the advantages.  This questiion of money seems to be the  pivot.around which trouble has centered. Yet  the man who has it today does not have it tomorrow. The thrifty man, industrious in his  .effort and carerul in his habits, saves a part of  what he earns, but all men are not thrifty, and  often it does not take long for fortunes to disappear.  Those who can uot save money want more  to spend than they can make. They are .dissatisfied with conditions that will only allow  them rewards for their industry. They declare  .such conditions are wrong, overlooking the  fact that qhe trouble is with themselves. Hall  Caine, in a foreword to Tlie Bondsman, tell* of  a man who fuiled throughout his life. A malignant spirit seemed to blast his plans, spoil  his crops, blight his hopes, and divide his;  home, at last he turned in despeiaUnu to "Tan-i  pie with it, nnd found that it was himself        !  The man who fails to discover the real cause '  of his discontent, who blames conditioiisjmnts!  around to  see  what   means  are available to,  meet his wants. He sees another man who has  worked and saved and got a little money, to- ���������  gother and he is envious.    He sees sevorul of  those men who have pooled their joint, savings'  nnd as a company are developing along some-:  line of industry with then id of their combined '  capital, and he is sure   lie   sees   relief,    lie is  working for them,  perhaps,   but   he   immediately goes gunning for the goose that  lays the  golden eggs.  The   company   may   I e   a bi:r eo'ieeni or it  may be small, but-'. anyway the. capitalization  looks big, and if he can enough dissatisfied associates to join with him, he thinks they can  grab money that will last them for the remainder of their earthly existence. Should they be  successful with their grab, do they get the  gold? The story is the same today as it was  centuries ago, the product in sight comes only  from a natural cause. It does not follow that  because so much comes regularly each week  in wages that there is a big pile just out of  sight.  Most people make a mistake in��������� thinking  that capital consists only of money or property. Credit is capital just as much as money.  The person who can easily borrow without  security is almost as well off as the man who  has wealth of his own. And you will find that  wages come from credit, more than from capital. Credit is the great base of finance, whether  it be the individual, the company or the nation. There is no great pile of gold to be  grabbed.  At present we have not got much to say  about the ;jiew city council.-.-/The chances  are, however, that before the end of the year  we shall talk quite freely on this subject. The  mayor-elect has had considerable experience  iu city affairs, and if he carries out his own  ideas,-there is no .leason why his administration should not prove acceptable to the ratepayers. In G-. H, Hull the city has undoubtedly secured one of the best aldermen she has  had for years. A significant fact "is, that all  the object-ions The Sun made to the new-council bylaw are being fulfilled.  For the first' time in the history of Grand  Forks we have had a city election with  less candidates than offices: Tins state of affairs does not remind us of pioneer clays, .when  we often had three or four mayoralty candidates in the field, "and The Sun used to issue  a special edition on election day to boost its  choice. Yve sigh for the conditionsNthat prevailed here before the tenderfooter took possession of the c'ty.  A great deal of noise has been raised by the  police commissioners this week, and Mayor  Acres is threatened with a $12,000 damage  suit for suspending the chief of police when  there was action for .assault pending .against  him. The aggrieved parties either want a  written apology or $12,000 in cash! They are  o;ood bluffers. Mr. Acres has announced his  intention to stand pat. The Sun feels certain  that he acted within his jurisdiction, and  agrees with the majority of those who attended the trial when they opinion that the chief  should perfectly satisfied with the outcome of  the action.  The eloquent appeal made for the election  of the "temperance" candidate for police commissioner, would lead an outsider to suppose  that W. C. Find lay had arrived in Grand  Fork's, ready to open a saloon in the event of  the defeat of this man.  History will never forgot the magnificent  resistance of the Belgian army at Lieire, Ant-  werp, Xamur, Dixmude and the Yser at the  beginning of the war, yet too often we forget  the great work that the Belgians have done  during the whole four years of lighting. Living  |n mud aud water on the extreme left of the  western front, they have held one of the most  difficult aud important parts of the line and  have built with tremendous labor the formidable works ou the low plains of Flanders that  tle.-y have guarded for almost four years. At  St.eens! I'ae-te, at Luvuhem, at I'ci^ersvlict and  at Mereiiem they won new honors by their  unfaltering bravery; and all the world knows  the part thev plaved in the last Lrreat drive.  r-  =\  en Byes orow:  Glasses become ,an imperative  necessity, and the -importance of giving the eyes proper car.e obtrudes   itself. apon  the dullest understanding.

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 5300 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 requires land in conjunction with his  farm, 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 CIO 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 undor this Act. Is extended from  one year from the death of such person,  as formerly, until one year after tho  conclusion of the present war. This  privilege  is  also  made  retroactive.  TOWNSITE PROPERTY ALLOTMENT  ACT.  Provision is made for the grant t>o  persons holding uncompleted Agreements to Purchase from the Crown of  such proportion of the !:uid, 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 aud 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 nllotmont 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 tho  Crown or to any municipality. The  rights of persons to whom the purchaser from the Crown has agreed to  sell nre also protected. The decision of  the Minister of Lands in respect to tho  adjustment of a proportionate allotment  is final. The time for making application for these allotments Is limited to  the 1st day of May, 1919. Any application matin after this date will not be  considered. These allotments apply to  town lots and lands of the Crown sold  at public auction.  For information apply to any Provincial Government Agent or to  G. R.
