Seed Oats Situation
In those districts where the oat
crop was a partial or total failure
last season, the farmers are becoming somewhat anxious as to the
a vailabie supply of seed oats. There
is a general tendency on the part of
farmers who have seed oats for sale
to withhold them until later in the
winter. The movement of seed oats
is delayed also, because transportation has been needed for coal, feed
and livestock.
P.ssibly 400,000 bushels of seed
oats may be required in Ontario and
Quebee, and a much larger quanti-
ty in Southern Alberta and Saskatchewan. The Canadian government seed purchasing commission
aireedy has substantial supplies in
store in (he intprior terminal eleva
tors, and large quantities of good
quality, early harvested oats are still
to come forward. Alberti and Saskatchewan requirements will be
given first consideration from th;1
seed oats produced iu these prov
ir ces.
The shortage in Ontario and Quebec may quite easily   be  met   from
the large and excellent oat   crops in
Prince Edward Island  and   eastern
Nova Scotia.   No, i   quality   Island
Banner seed oats are now being   delivered  as far  west asToronto at a
pi-ice comparable with western   seed
oats of the same grade. The price of
No    1   seed  oats  delivered in bulk
carlots at any point in  Ontario  and
Quebec should not exceed  the  cur
rent   Fort   William   cash   price for
No. 2 Canada western oats  by more
than 35c per bushel.  Piegistered and
other  select  stocks  true  to variety
may be higher in price.

Member of Provincial Library Commission Visits the City and Explains the System
The 11 acre fruit ranch formerly
known as the Miles Barrett ranch
was acquired this week by P. S.
Thompson, of England. This property is one t of the choicest small
ranches in the Grand Forks valley,
and comprises some 500 fine young
Mcintosh Red apple trees. Mr.
Thompson previous to his purchasing had inspected fruit ranches in
the Kootenay district, ihe.Okana-
gan district aud the Fraser valley,
and returning from the coast to
Grand Forks and securing property
here speaks volumes for the district
in comparison with other places.
The sale was made through Robertson & Egg. Mr. Thompson is delighted with the valley and the property. He will reside in Grand Forks.

ranch, will also continue to make

Senior Boundary Hockey
Teams Play a Good
Game at the Grand
Forks Rink
��� The-first game of the six arranged
for between the Grand Forks and
Greenwood senior hockey teams was
played on the local ice on Tuesday
night, when the Grand Forks boys
werp victorious' by a score of 5-2.
Three games will be played in each
towu for the Boundary cup.
In the first period the Grand
Forks boys had the best of the
play, the score being 2-0. In tne
second and third periods the play
was more even, the visitors getting
2 goals and the home team 3. The
game was free from rough playing,
and at times it was very fast.
O. H. Niles handled the play in a
manner that proved so be satisfactory to both teams.
The second game is scheduled   to
be   played   iu   Greenwood tonight.
At b meeting of  townspeople, including   the   mayor,   Rev.     Hillis
Wright, Mrs. Jeff  Davis, James  H.
Ryley, and several  ladies���most of
the Daughters of the  Empire,  held
in the Davis hall on  Saturday January   17,   to   hear   Miss Stewart, of
Nelson, a member of the  provincial
commission for   establishing   public
libraries,   it   was  demonstrated   by
thespeaker that the libraries already
established    in   the   province   bad
proved of   vast benefit to the com.
niunities   where   they  are   located.
Those present at   the  meeting  were
unanimous in the opinion that  the
ejtablishment of such a library here
would be i very advantageous thing
both for the city of Grand Forks and
to the surrounding district.
It is expected that a public meeting will soon be called to determine
what shall be done in the matter,
and most probably tbe city counci'
will be asked to pass a bylaw in its
favor.
The commission has established
library centers throughout the province. Nelson has been made such
a center, and it is proposed to make
Giand Forks a subsidiary point ol
that center.

C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, JANUARY 10, 1020  Mayor Acre's splendid victory in ' yesterday's city election removes, to a great extent,  the sting of personal defeat. Mr. Acres' majority was of such a substantial nature that the  muck-rakers and the ultra-purity squad who  opposed him should be forever silenced. Under Mayor Acres' administration we expect to  see our city make steady advancement.  j international differences, for prevention of fu-  j tiire   wars,   for sp.iead  of civilization, for security of society in all lands; and generally for  I gradual progress ..'towards fulfilment of the just  'and generous ideals for A\hich America  came  and fought by the side of her sister democracies. That is their  belief.   They believe  also  that suqh ratification is in the true and abiding  interests., of America/ herself, but if America  does not share this belief, they recognize without reserve that the right of decision must be  hers. If she thinks that reservations are necessary for her safety and freedom, that they are  demanded by the provisions of her  constitution or by the traditions of her foreign policy,  they will welcome ratification by hm-.on   any  reasonable terms.  We are confident this is the  view of the British and French peoples."  f~-  Taking a philosophic view of the result of  the city election, 'we find it an easy task to  convince ourselves that we won a victory by  losing out. In order to live, we do not need  the salary that past councilmen have been in  the habit of voting themselves, and that will  in alUikelihood be voted this year, as our meal  ticket for'the immediate future years is reasonably secure; the honor of the office is not  commensurate with the worry and loss of  time, and lastly, whenever any of the city's  patronage comes our way we can accept it  without violating any fundamental laws of the  land. To those whe so loyally supported us  with their suffrage without solicitation we  wish to return our thanks; to those who voted  against us through honest convictions we  bear no animosity; but for those who opposed  lis through selfish motives we^ have no olive  branch to offer.  Next in order is a union of husbands, with  demands for hot biscuits daily, time and a half  for walking the baby nights, 50 per cent increase in spending money, and two pairs of  decent socks pei-week.  While we did not covet the office, we had  fully determined to perform the duties that  went with it to the best of our ability had  we been elected, and had, in fact, in contemplation a plan that would, we believe, have  done away with the sectional strife and animosity that has been so detrimental to the  growth of our in the past. But our primary  object in entering the race was to force a contest, and that object we accomplished. Even  with two candidates from our end of the ward,  the vote against us was insufficieet to cause  wailing and gnashing of teeth.  Had our contemporary printed another article against Mr. Acres, he would probably  have receivedevery vote in the city and made  a clean sweep of it.  The increasing need ofrfuel for British industries and the high cost and comparative  scarcity of it have led the government to study  the sources of oil in British territory. But, although oil has been discovered in the British  Isles, the British empire as a whole produces  only about one-fortieth of the total output,  which is not nearly enough for its purposes.  In 1917 India produced a little more than  1,000,000 tons, Trinidad 200,000 tons, Egypt  134,500 tons and Canada 25,100 tons. Burma,  Trinidad and Egypt are considered as promising oil fields, but there is not much prospect  of ^finding' oil either in Australia or in South  Africa, and-the Canadian supply is practically  an unknown quantity owing to lack of development. ���������  The average citizen is rapidly ������������������realizing'that  a general increasb of wages is not a reliable  panacea for all the ills that may threaten a  social system.  What has become of that aldermanic candidate who wouldn't sit in the city council with  Mayor Acres?  The allied nations o\' Europe have ratified  Now that sugar presents a more acute problem than either wheat or meat, it is important  to know what are the prospects for the future.  The most careful estimate of the coming crop  in all the world makes a total of *l-6,600,000  tons, which is only 280,000 tons more than the  last crop, The sugar-cane crop is axpected to  be twelve and a quarter million tons, that of  beet sugar four and a third million. Just before the war the production of the world was  much the same as now, but then cane sugar  only slightly exceeded beet sugar in amount.  In 1913 cane sugar was a little more<than nine  million tons, beet a little less than nine million. Of the coming crop Cuba is expected to  produce more than a fourth of the whole supply���������four and a third million tons. All Europe,  which in 1912 produced seven and three-  fourths million to us, will furnish only three  and a half million tons.

He is so different to what  many expected.  No wonder a  been created for a real life-like portrait of our popular future king.  Photographers and artists have failed  to secure a satisfactory snapshot of  the royal visitor. He was not here to  pose for them. It remained for The  Family Herald and Weekly Star of  Montreal to secure a portrait, that  would be satisfactory, and they have  succeeded. Just before leaving for  Canada the prince gave a special sitting to the celebrated London, England, photographer, VanDyke. The  agents of The Family Herald were  instructed to secure the right to reproduce it in Canada, and that: great  weekly is now offering it to its  readers.  The Sun has succeeded in making  an arrangement with The Family  Herald aud Weekly Star by which  our readers may have The Sun, Tho  Family Herald and Weekly Star for  one year and a copy of the portrait for  $2.00.

The  suba'tern thought the room appeared  to be comfortab'e but, seeking to  make himself disagreeable, he raised  his eyebrows, after looking at the reproduction, and said in a rude  voice:  "Why, madam, did you cut the  arms off this bust in a room destined  to be occupied by a German   officer?''  Words   failed   me.     What could I  say? He left the honse with an ofl'etid  el air.   But the incident   had   no   so  (pie1, which was   most extraordinary.

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  and all are leaders in their  lines. Ask your friends td^  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 citiej- 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.  K������0  n  fj?

If a business man had a first class  customer who owed him $1000, on  which he had 500 per cent secuiity,  and customer came to .him with a  cheque and told him he wished to  square his account. Suppose the  business man, before he received the  cheque, noticed that it was short of  the full amount owing to him, and  drew the customer's attention to this  fact. Suppose, further, that the customer, on his atteution being drawn  to the matter, admitted his mistake  and stated that he would go back  home and make out a cheque for  the full amount and send it to him.  Under these circumstances, would  the average business man have taken  his customer's word, or would he  have snatched the cheque out of his  hands and told him to go back home  and make out a cheque for the balance due him?
