Mayor Acres and Aid.  Hull, Love, McDonald and Miller  were present.  Sam Siddall applied for permis.-  pion to'move.a email building from  Mrs. W. K. C. Manly's down-town  property to tne Manly orchard  tract in the .West ward. The requets  was granted.  A telegram from J. J. Warren, replying to an enquiry on the subject,  made by the city officials, stated  that the Kettle Valley line would be  satisfied with any arrangements  which the city might make with the  C.P.R. regarding the location of its  new station.  The following resolution, offered  by Aid. Love and seconded by Aid.  Hull, was approved:  That the city council, while wishing to cooperate  to the   fullest   extent and in harmony with   the proposal  of  your  company  regarding  the matter of the removal of the station af Grand Forks to Cuprum, feel  that before coming to a   final  decision   or recommendation of accept-  ance, they should be   in   possession  of fuller details concerning the   proposed changes, together   with   some  assurance  of  their   permanency, in  order that  the citizens  may have a  fuller knowledge of   the impending  changes and results.   The council is  of the opinion that the repealing  of  the  existing agreement will have to  be submitted to the people or to the  lieutenact governor   io  council  for  approval.    Therefore we   would  respectfully request that either a communication  more   fully    outlining  the proposed changes be received  or  that another interview be  arranged.  The customary resolution authorizing the mayor to sign city cheques,  etc., was passed.  The mayor appointed   the following standing committees: '  Finance���������Aid. Hull, Miller,Love.  Fire,    Water    and    Light���������Aid.  Miller, Hull, McDonald.  Board of Works���������Aid. McDonald,  Miller, Love.  Cemetery and Parks���������Aid. Love,  Hull, McDonald.

Many   of   our  older orchards have acquired the off  year habit, which means  crop   one  year, grow the next. It is  after  the  growing year that we,must thin our  trees   and   see  that there is not too  much new growth   to  exclude  light  and air.    If  there  is a heavy   new  growth, thin   this to distribute it as  evenly as pofsibie. Don't leave stubs  of heavy new  growth  hoping   they  will   form   fruit   spurs, as   cutting  away the heavy   new   growth   cuts  away the  big  plump   buds   which  easily form fruit spurs, leaving  the  less matured buds which   prefer   to  make new wood growth^ so  the   re  suit   would   be. crowding instead of  thinning the tree.  Use sharp pruners and saws   and  make clean cuts.  Use   sharp   eyes   and good judg  ment;   distribute   the new growth  evenly and the crop will be   evenly  distributed.

MVSTIFVMA  Interruptions of Wireless  From     Without     This  ���������Planet Are Unaccounted For  THE WEATHER  Jan.  The following is the minimum  and maximum temperature for each  day during the past week, as recorded by the government thermometer on E. F.

The interruptions at wireless stations,he saye,  take the form of  apparently   meaningless combinations of letters  and  are   not coufioed   to   any   country  or continent. A great effort has been  made to translate the  interruptions,  but without avail.  Marconi states that the letters appear most frequently and he is convinced the interruptions come from  a sphere other than this earth, although where they origiuate he  could not say.  Marconi was asked if he thought  people in any other planet were trying to "wireless" to this earth, and  replied:;;'!  ..1 1:..'.':..  "I would not rule out  the   possibility.    There   is   no proof that the  strange sounds are confined  to   any  particular   period, for they tare   as  frequent by day as   by   night.    The  phenomena were first noticed before  the war, but the investigations were  suspended.   One   wonders if we are  on the threshhold of  a   tremendous  discovery in proof that   human   beings exist in otherpianets than  this  earth, and are endeavoring to  com  municate with us."  he does not use until  another  year,  as he will then'be sure of having a  good strain next year.   This method  would   not,   however,   serve     with  onion, which loses   its  germinating  power very rapidly, hence should be  purchased every year.    There   is a  wonderful    difference    in   onions.  Sometimes  from   the   seed of   one  stock   a   large   proportion   will   be  thickhecks while from another most  of the plants make  good   bulbs     If  one has had good success from a certain source one year, the safest plan  will   be  to  order  from   the   same  source another year.  Sometimes novelties have not apparently been compared very carefully with the best of the older varieties before being offered for sale,  as they do not prove superior, if as  good. While it is interesting to test  varieties, it is well not to spend  much money on them until they  have bten tested at the experimental  station.  Another   advantage   of   ordering  early is that one can   test  the   germinating   power   of  a  seed before  spring so that there will be   time   to  order   again   if   the  germination is  poor.  Often seed is ordered   so   late  that when it is sown and  the plants  do not come up there is not time   to  order again, and one loses the crop.  When there is a shortage  of   many  kinds of supplies, as there is at pres*"  eut.   it   is  very  desirable  to order  early the material needed   for  next  season's operations.  Ceremony Was Marked  by Peace-Time Resplendency���������Floor of House  and  Galleries Crowded  Victoria, Jan. 29.���������Peacetime  ceremonial was renewed in all its  resplency on the occasiou of the  opening of the fourth session of the  fourteenth parliament of British  Columbia by his honor the lteuten-  ant governor this afternoon.  In striking contrast to last   year's  event, when all formality was eliminated out of respect to the   memory  of his royal highness , Prince   John,  every available seat on   the floor  of  the   legislature   itself  and   in   tho  speaker's   gallery   had  been   taken  long before his   honor entered    the  chamber, while the  public  galleries  presented their customary animated  appearance.    Immediately following  an inspection of the guard of   honor  posted at the foot of the steps  leading   to   the   main  entrance   to the  handsome  pile,   his  honor,  accompanied by his private  secretary,   S.  J.  S. Muskett, and  his aides,  Maj.  Selden Humphreys and Capt.

C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, JANUARY 30, 1920  Keremeos, a small town-west of here, won  a signal victory a couple of months ago from  the Great Northern railway in two cases be-  fnro he railway commission. Keremeos did  not antagonize the Great Northern, but by  taking a dignified stand for its rights, the  town was given justice by the commission.  Instead of the city council "cooperating, to,  the fullest extent" to facilitate the company  to move its station out of the city,- it-should  appeal to the railway commission' for."justice.  We understand there is a law which, prevents  rail way com pan i es from m o v i ng th ei r statioil s  outside the city limits once they"have; been  located inside. This law should be invoked in  this case, and if,the citizens can not agree on  a site inside the city, let the railway commission select one for them.

JEWELER AND OPTICIAN"  GRAND FORKS, B.C.  ^r  -J  Grand Forks need not antagonize the Canadian Pacific railway beyond taking a firm stand  for her rights. If this is done there is not much  danger of the station being moved outs'de the  city limits.   We are opposed to the company's  proposal because it would be an  injustice  to  the ratepayers to allow the company to withdraw from the city on the eve when its  property is about to become taxable.    These taxes  vyould probably help out the city's finances to  a  considerable  extent.   The .Great Northern  p iys about $800 taxes a year, aud   the  Canadian Pacific company's taxes would probably  amount  to  over  a  thousand  dollars a year.  Both these items would likely be lost to the city  if the proposal now under consideration is consummated, because  the Great Northern also  has a bridge that needs rebuilding,  and  if it  could avoid this burden  aud escape  the city  taxation at the same time by building a station  across the river it would probably do so.  This  would leave one of our leading industries���������the  Boundary Iron   Works���������marooned, and that  concern would be forced to move also, probably out of the district altogether.    To give up  all these taxes without a  struggle  would be  a crime  not  only against  the present overburdened  taxpayers of  the city, but against  future generations.  In the meantime it is the duty of the city  council to look after the interests of the taxpayers. The. railway officials will look after  the interests of }he railway company without  any cooperation^  The verdict in .the trial of: the leaders of the  recent general strike at Winnipeg is likely to  have an important effect on the future of organized labor in Canada. In substance the  verdict classifies as sedition all general strikes  and-sympathctic' strikes, direct action- "one  big union," seeking to.control industry, advocating a change in the form of government, or  doing anything to endanger the "comfort"  of the public. The leaders of the strike were  sentenced to two years in the penitentiary.  If a dispatch from somewhere in Russia is  authentic the Bolsheviki is doomed. It says  that the soviet government has decreed a  twelve-hour workday and that all must work  seven days per week. No true Bolshevist; can  submit to such an indignity.  We are told that the city "can extend the  city limits to take in the site of the proposed  station. But the people of the Ruckle addition once voted agaiust amalgamation, and  . they would probably do so again if given an  opportunity. And this result would be certain after the district becomes colonized with  C.P.R people. Besides", the city has a bigger  townsite now than she is able to take care of  properly. There are people in the city who  have been paying taxes for twenty years who  have neither city water nor light. It is thp  city's duty to supply these people with modern conveniences before she begins to sigh for  the conquest of new territory.  To destroy a newspaper, even though it is a  week old, shows, in the opinion of the Chinese, a gross lack of character; to "crumple a  printed advertisement shows the haste of unreason; to toss a book carelessly on the floor  shpws a tendency toward violence; to tear a  printed page shows that you are mentally de  ficient. It is a sad commentary on the quality  of much of our reading that we of the Western world, where illiteracy is rare, have so  little reverence for the printed page.  In former years the liquor element played a  potent part in all elections. Now,that element  has dwindled down to one of two' men in  each town.  The land business has been proverbially a  business on  a low ethical plane.    It is being  put  on   a higher  plane,   and there are many  conscientious real estate men who are rendering asocial service of a high order in the work;  yei there are many dishonest ones still active,  and it is necssary that all right-minded people  use every effect, to put the business of selling  land and of colonization on as high a plane as  the   best mercantile   business, which finds a  profit in protecting the consumer. Many asso-  Cuprum���������a very nice name  for a person in ciations of real estate dealers are .ciK-a^ed in  his cups���������would probably become   the  rccog- j praiseworthy efforts to expose dishonest prac-  nized   name,   and   Grand Forks would disap- jticcs   and   to   encourage  a right professional  pear from the C.P.R.  maps  altogether.

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, Van Dyke. 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.

One man refused to buy  a tieket."      :  "And who is that?" he asked, gaz  ing at all the occupants of the car.  "The driver," was the reply.  And the roar of tqe passeuge.is told  the inspector that he had got the worst  of it.     ;  HOW YOU CAN TELL  Only Tablets with "Bayer Cross"  are Aspirin���������No others!

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 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.  dj#  ES  3  /������S3i>  &UGGass?u aAfflvep-  f;   K3 (SI W7f* P3  :isei'as in i m  I  waKmmmmm  mauuuMsama THE������ SUN.
