WANT  Desires to Build New Station in Rackle Addition  and Run Passenger  Trains --Through Columbia  A public meeting, was hurriedly  called on Tuesday afternoon to meet  W. O. Miller, divisional superintendent of the C. P.R. and his engineer, and to discuss with them a  plan which the company has lately  formulated of moving the passenger  station to the Ruckle addition, as  the life of the Kettle Valley line  bridge across the Kettle river appears to be numbered.  The Sun reporter happened to  miss this meeting, and therefore he  can only write from hearsay. It  seems that the company is very  anxious to move the station from  its present location. Mr. Miller, we  are told, admitted that the city  could force the C.P.R; company to  run its trains through the city for  two years longer, in accordance with  the agreement which the city has  with the company, and thatg the  charter provided for a stop of passenger trains being made iu the city.  With the station iu the Ruckle addition, which is outside the city  limits, this provision would not  be complied with. We have also  b^ed told that Mr. Miller intimated  th^t if thejjdtizeus took this course,  the company would probably comply with their wishes, but that at  the end ot the two years the old Columbia station would likely be used  again.  Of the citizens present at the  meeting a majority appeared to be  in favor of acquiescing in the wishes  of the corn pany, but the sentiment in  that direction was^. by no means  uuanimous.  The  proposition   has, of   course,  been freely discussed by the citizens  since  the meeting.   Various   views  are  expressed.    .No   ene seems in-  clided to antagonize  the  company,  yet no one wants to see the city sur  render any of  her rights, or throw  away  taxes that  would   naturally  accrue to her for  all   time  to come  by   having   the   station inside the  city limits,   Aid. Hull has suggested  a  plan   that seems to   be perfectly  reasonable.   His contention is  that,  as the agreement   between   the  city  and the railway company had to be  raent of Mr. Miller, who is report"  'edj to have said at the meeting that  he had no knowledgeof a working  agreement between the two roads.  It is currently reported that plans  are out for a $35,000 depot, and  that surveys have been made for "a  freight yard in the Ruckle addition.  The list of appropriations for western improvements that Vice-President Coleman brought back with  him from Montreal a days ago,  which appears to be complete, even  to the lepairing of fehc'es, contains  no item for the construction of this  building, however.  S24,149.48 was spent between 1907  and 1917 and S18,000.3S between  1917 and,. 1920. This is the main  road into the Francois and Cotsa  Lake country. It commences at  Burns lake on the G'.T-P. railway  and runs almost duo 'south for - fifteen miles to Francois lake and tbe  ferry landing. The road was laid out  by local foremen under   the super-  Gost of Building   Public  Plighways UnderFormer vision of the road superintendent  Governments   and  the  Present Administration  Compared  Many- Merry Mirth Makers Mingle Midst Music.

King, minister of public works, has found a  number of interesting comparisons  which throw the old system of public works administration into ad-  ver'e relief against that which has  resulted from his reorganization of  the department. To give point to  his contention, the minister explained to your correspondent .three  specific examples of road survey  work in which a good deal of public money was needlessly wasted because the individuals who located  the roads in question were lacking  in engineering knowledge. These examples show the actual expenditure  made upon the prospective roads  ro m - 1907 to 1917 under the old  methods and the amount spent between 1917 and 1920 under tbe new  policy.    It   will   be   understood, of I opposition leader's desire Logo back  Owing to the bad grades on the  old road, which reached a maximum  of 10 per cent, as well as many dan������  gerous turns in a number of places  on steep grades, the department de  cided in 1918 to relocate practically  the entire length of the road. A survey was made of the old and new  locations, and it was found that... in  every respect the new location was  superior to the old. For example,  the maximum grade of the new location is 4 per cent as, compared  with 10 percent 'ou the old road.  Moreover, the alignment of the new  location avoids the dangerous turns  so prevalent in the old. The old  road was constructed chiefly in clay,  loam and gumbo, while the predominating materials encountered  in the new location are gravel, clay  and loam, gumbo being almost en  tirely absent. In addition to the  foregoing improvements, the new  location is 700. lineal i'eet shorter  than the former.  These   are   but   three    examples  sho wing the   tremendous   improve7  ment   of   the   new system over the  old, while they in   themselves   con  stitute an effective rejoinder   to  the  Now in the Lead in the  Series ol Hockey Games  for the Boundary Trophy  course, that these latter expendi  tures were incurred in remedying  or trying to remedy improper lo '  cation, impracticable grade? and  alignment on sections of tbe road in  question.  Id the first place tbe minister  re  fers to the Cariboo   road  from   150  Mile house to Harper's camp   From  19.07 to 1917 the   amount   expend  ed was Si 1,770 37 and from  1917 to  1.920 $5,549 01.   Typical   examples  of poor location  were   noticeable   in  parts of this   main   artery,  particularly   the   portion   mear    Harper's  camp and locally known as Stuart's  pitch   Instead of being iocated along  the hillside, where a level grade and  good   alignment    were   obtainable,!  this section of the road was made to  run up the hillside on a   16 per cent  grade and to descend   on   a similar  grade on the other end.     A road di  version, one and  one-half  miles  in  extent and   costing  no   more   than  $1800, was completed last year on a  In   the hockey  game   tonight at! practically     level   grade,    thereby  Greenwood    between   Grand   Forks ! eliminating one of the most imprac  and   Greenwood  for   the Boundary ! ticable roads to truffle in   the   prov-  cup the score was   5-3   in  favor  of,/V'nce-  The new grade, of course, has  Grand   Forks.

'fhe   temporary    loan   bylaw was  reconsidered and finally passed.  In the hockey game at Greenwood last Friday night between the Grand Forks and Greenwood teams, the Greenwood players  showed better form than they did in-  the initial game in this city. A few ."  minutes after the game started  Greenwood scored, and shortly  afterwards Grand Forks made a goal.  During the remaining part of the  play Greenwood scored four times  and Grand Forks once, the game ending with a score of 5-2 in Greenwood's favor.  The line-up follows;  Grand Forks���������Goal, L.

The  question has  many angles to it, and all should be viewed in  their proper  light and finally decided upon a  basis that will eventually result in the greatest  benefit to the City. It is not a subject that can  be disposed of lightly in a hip-hip-hurrah manner.    At  present 'we are not in possession of  c suhioient data to deaf fully: with-.'the   matter.

Conservation, a monthly bulletin published  by the Commission of Conservation, gives the  following rules for building up your bodily  resistance: (1) .Sleep with at least one window  open   in  your bedroom  all   the  year round.  (2) Eat   plenty   of   good,    wholesome  food.  (3) Never allow yourself to become more tired  by staying update after a hard day; make up  for it by going to bed early.  If you are in good health, if your resisting  power is good, the germs of disease are less  likely to harm you. Nothing helps to build  up the resisting power so much as proper  food, plenty of sleep, and pure, fresh air.  "Far from being a new experiment in democracy," wi ices Alfred W. Kiefoth, late U.  S, military rttache to .Russia, in the New York  Times, "Bolshevism is the get-rich quick  scheme of radicalism. It is a party government maintaining its power through" military  force, terror, food control, 'tyrannical oppression of every form of'opposition. The Bolsheviki speak of peace, but'they are not sincere.  They desire a breathing spell for world social  revolution, which is their real aim. That is the  theme of all the commissars in every villau'oin  the land." He adds that the political support  that the Bolsheviki are receiving in Kussia is  due to the fact that the allies have not adopted an open-policy toward them. All their  leaders emphasize the possibility of an American agreement, and this keeps up hope in  Soviet Russia.'  i  'XI.  6li WiMifl-B IS  Of all present-day Sewing Machines.

(T1  ^clcplione    Ofl?.ce  The money value of a man includes the cost  of his upkeep and education from his birth  till he becomes self-supporting. He then becomes an asset instead of a liability. This  demonstrates the economic loss to the community when, through an accident, he is in  capacitated and unable to carry on his work.  All the cost of bringing him to the earning  stage is wasted, and he again becomes a burden on society.  In examining trade statistics it is necessary  to remember that at present the abnormally  low value of Eropean money in terms of United States money makes the imports of that  country seem much more valuable than they  really are. The dutiable value of such goods  is the foreign value converted into American  dollars; and under normal conditions it is converted at par according to the value of the  coins of the various countries, which the director of the mint announces at stated intervals. But in certain European countries paper  money is still legally at par, although really  worth much less. Thus goods bought at the  lower actual value  arc   listed   at the greater  legal vnlue.

The operation of-city produce markets is  regarded as having a close bearing on the cost  of living in the towns and cities. With a view  evidently of bringing out the best systems of  conducting city markets, the Agricultural Gazette of Canada, published by the department  of agriculture at Ottawa, has brought together' in the December number, the systems  by which markets are handled in eighteen of  the larger cities in Canada. The statements  provided by city mayors, city clerks and superintendents of markets show clearly that  there does not exist in Canada any uniform  system of city market administration. Each  city has its own special rules and rugulations.  In some instances the market is sublet to a  sort of publican who buys from the city  the privilege to collect tolls or fees from  those who bring produce to the market. In  other cases, as in Regina, we find a woman's  organization efficiently conducting the city  market on a business basis, while many public markets are directly managed by a committee appointed by the city council.

A Big Newspaper Bargain  The Prince of Wales has captured  the hearts of all Canada. Rich and  poor, old and young, are enraptured  with his easy manner and happy expression. He is so different to what  many expected.  No wonder a great demand has  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 and Weekly Star by which  our readers may have The Sun, Tha  Family Herald and Weekly Star for  one year and a copy of the portrait for  ���������������2. 25. The demand for this portrait  in Canada will be enormous, and *ve  advise our readers to take - advantage  of this opportunity without delay.  f^^s^^ifSWBs^s^dsasskss^s^ss^s^  Tfte Coryell Residence  This is an eight roomed house in  excellent state of repair, situated on  the outskirts of the city, being Lot 7,  Block 5, and comprising abont 4 acres  of finest cultivated land.

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 jeaders in their  lines. Ask your friends to  name the most successful  merchants they know in the  big cities, and in each case  the name of 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.  a  xi^-  F������*2?W Eli <&S El  ���������K' S /ft f^>i 1-<W? *?**        t  Bf  "SPBo  553 -r  THE SUr>, GRAND.
