Mr Acres congratulated the citizens of Grund Forks on the personnel of the new council,  THRIFT CAMPAIGN  ORGANIZED HERE  The London Times quotes an  article a ppearing in  Die Zu-  k un.ft of Berlin on  December  14, in which -Maximilian-liar'-  ,deJ.<i;" editor of the neftvspapeiy  appeals to. Germany to   make  a demonstration of good faith  and readiness tb  secure  confidence by giving  guarantees.  The article asserts that the  German people fail to face the  facts about their   own   plight  and   about   allied    opinions.  First,  it   says,   the-'German  people accepted  the   "official  lie"���������invented in order to conceal the responsibility   of, the  emperor .for eventual defeat���������  that Germany had been  wantonly  attacked; and,  second,  when defeat came the German  people let off their rulers   too  lightly.   It declares  the   German people do not really  understand the account which is  being   made     against   them,  which Herr Harden describes  as "fifty-one months of brutal  Ex Mayor Acres, just before (he  the opening of the first session of  the new city council on Monday  afternoon, read a detailed comparative statement for the years 1917  and 1918" of the receipts anddis  bursements of the city finances. The  statement showed that the city Is in  good financial condition. During the  past two years the city had been run  on a very economical basis and sav  ing had been made wherever possible. He thought it would be necessary to continue this policy of re ���������  trenchment during the coming year1  During the past two years some of  the deficits in the sinking fund  caused by the cauncils in the earlv  days failing to deposit the required  amount .had been made good. The  city had redeemed a considerable  amount of "its'; unmatured bonds; in  fact,'vvh-enevt;v thsy had-t>een rjfL-red-  oh the marketata priceat which the  city save money,and the funds were  available for this purpose, they hud  oeen redeemed. Some of the sinking fund not rtquired lor theredem^  tion of bonds at present had been  invested in Victory bonds, and the  interest from these, together with  the saving made by redeeming tin  matured bonds, would, he thought,  offset the loss caused by the can  cellation 01 the liquor licenses.  Mr. Acres devoted considerable  time to an explanation of the controversy between the city and the  Townsite company. Last summer,  when the question of holding a tax  sale was before the council, the  council decided that if the Townsite  company would pay its 1916 taxes  the sale would be deferred for another year and to collect the delinquent taxes from other property owners by court proceedings. A  compromise was effected with the  Townsite company whereby thejeom-  pany agreed to pay 83000 of its 1916  Dr. - Acres has been appointed  organizer of the thrift campaign for  this district, which includes territory as far west as Princeton, and  the "following local committee has  been formed by him in connection  with the sale of war savings and  thrift stamps: Dr. Acres, chairman; Geo H.

Of this amount about  850,000,000 will be required for completing the program of the imperial  munitions board in Canada Fifty  million dollars in addition to what lias  already been arrangedwill be re-  mured for the purchase of this year's  grain crop.

This may be compared with 2,147,405 pound* in November, 2,549,000 pounds in October, 3,271,525 pounds in 'September last, and 4,468,288 pounds in  December, 1917, the largest in more  than a year.  The net value of the copper produced in December last approaches  $300,000, according to an official  estimate. The figures for the month  indicate no great reduction in efforts in spite of a reduced market,  say stockholders.  The by-products plant near Any-  ox, which the Granby has had under construction for the last few  months at an estimated cost of  aoout ������3,500,000, will be -ready for  operation by May.

C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, JANUARY 24, 1919  MASTERS OF IGNORANCE  THOSE  who preach  Bolshevism are   very  careful to avoid any reference to  the  result of its adoption.  There are always in every  community a few gay and reckless spirits who  delight in smashing things.    Men intoxicated  with alcoholic liquor often show flushed faces  ' and talk very loudly and bravely about  what  they have done. Sometimes they reach a stage  where in order to emphasize their  statements  they smash things. Then they laugh stupidly.  Sometimes  they are good humored about it  and pay the bill; at other times they  defy  order and decency and have to be forcibly ejected  from the place wherein they have made themselves  a  nuisance.    The  people present consider the man rather a fool to get into  such a  condition. If he has smashed anything belonging  to  them,   their anger is roused and they  probably resort to physical  violence   to  convince him of his folly.  / There are a great many men who become  similarly intoxicated With their own voices.  Words, sentences, phrases have exactly the  same effect on them as alcohol on other men.  They work themselves up into a frenzy on a  platform. They denounce everyone and everything except their .own particular friends or  theory. But when they start in to exchange  denunciation for action, the damage they do is  enormous and far-reaching. It concerns everyone of us because it is the sort of damage  which breaks up everything which holds civilization together. The word "Bolsheviki" is the  Russian word for "majority." It has become  the universal expression for anarchy.  Anarchy may seem an excellent thing to the  man who has nothing. He thinks he has nothing to lose and having played a "star" part to  bring it about he believes that he can live forever in the limelight. He is like a child fascinated  with  the glamour of the stage.    He  wants to be before the footlight. He wants to  pose and talk, to swing his arms wildly, to  hear the applause of his fellow men when he  quotes some phrase which sounds well, what-  erer its meaning may be. He always exaggerates because exaggeration is part of his stock  in trade. Get him quietly in a corner and talk  things over with him; ask him what he really  means and exactly what he is aiming at; discuss or try to discuss results with him on an  intelligent basis and his enthusiasm evaporates.  What he wants to do is to hold forth. He  must have an audience. He does not want to  analyze what he says. He does not want to  follow anything to its logical conclusion. Pin  him down to one line of argument and he begins to abuse you. He takes refuge in abuse  because abuse comes easiest to his tongue.  He may tell you quite frankly that he desires  to bring about anarcy, but he does not want  to analyze what that means. Today lie is trying to make us believe that Bolshevism is true  demotracy; that the Russiam workmen have  thrown off the  shackes  of capital and  have  emerged  free  into  a new  world where they A Definition  own their own tools of production or where "Papa," asked the studious little boy,"what  all industry is socialized. Therefore, he ar- is a shyster?" "A shyster, my son," replied  gues, if we follow the lead of the Bolshevists | the fond parent,"is a ragged lawyer's clerk who  we can do the same thing and bring about the I is too lazy to work and too craven to become  same result. .a highwayman.    His clients usually consist of  What this intoxicated gentleman   does  not'fakirs, sharpers and thieves."  Among the boys from Grand Forks who  saw service overseas an unusually high percentage paid the supreme price. The Sun has  been requested to make a plea for a suitable  memorial to perpetuate their heroism. This  object, we believe, could easily be attained by  calling for a public snbsrciption. The memory  al need not be costlier than the funds collected. It could be in the form of almost any  public utility of a permanent nature. In some  sections ofthe country planting shade trees and  naming them after fallen heroes is a popular  method of perpetuating their names. Grand  Forks is very much in need of a public park.  Why not take up a public subscription, secure a site for a park (the city has lots of vacant land it could donate for this purpose),  and plant a tree in it for each of the thirtyjmen  who who fell on the held of honor. In this  way the dead would be honored and the living would be benefited. If some person who  is not too hard pressed for time will take this  matter up we feel sure it can be made a success.  tell us is that the Bolshevists are only a small  portion of the Russian people and that their  power only extends over certain districts of  Russia. He does not tell us that Lenin, the  Bolshevist leader, has for years advocated the  government of the masses by secret committees backed by armed force. He does not tell  us that Lenin used to be in partnership with  Plehanov when they both ran a paper in Switzerland, and that Plehanov was a follower of  Karl Marx, in other words a scientific socialist, while Lenin was a follower of Bakunin,  the Russian anarchist whd meant to bring  about an agrarian revolution in Russia in order to destroy the Russian government. He  does not tell us that Lenin is a cold-blooded  experimentalist, a Russian noble who has no  sympathy with the toilers, but simply wants  to use them for his own purposes of experiment in various forms of government.  Marx and Bakunin are dead and the world  has changed in the last forty years to such an  extent that if they were alive they would be  amazed. Bakunin was an anarchist only as far  as the Russian government was concerned,  and Lenin has followed in his footsteps only  in the hope that he might use the Russian  peasants to bring about international anarchy.  He wanted to arm the peasants and sweep  across Europe as a conqueror. Trotski, his  coadjutator, is an emotional enthusiast. Ciee-  rin, Krylenko and Skripnik are executioners.  The intoxicated gentleman who declaims so  loudly about the Bolsheviki hardly knows the  names of their leaders. He certainly does not  know their aims, or if he does, he lies when he  pretends they have anything in common with  democracy.  Yet we hear on all sides that the Bolshevists  are democrats whom the allies are determined  to suppress. We read wonderful stories about  the accomplishments of the Bolshevists, but  forget that these stories all emanate from  Switzerland, chiefly from Leirn'a old press  bureau in Geneva. Nearly all. the German  propaganda issued during the war was from  the same source. We are asked to believe that  Bolshevism is a sane and orderly method of  progress; that under the Bolshevist government conditions are better than under the  Canadian or American government. It would  be amusing if it were not so tragic. It is tragic,  if you know what is occurring in Russia and  realize that several million people are dying  of starvation simply because of a few men  with nothing to lose have made themselves the masters of the ignorant.

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 $300 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 640 acres may be leased  by one person or company.  PRE-EMPTORS' FREE GRANTS ACT.  The scope of this Act is enlarged to  include all persona joining and serving  with His Majesty's Forces.

This  privilege  is also  made  retroactive.  TOWNSITE PROPERTY ALLOTMENT  ACT.  Provision is made for- the grant *o  persons holding uncompleted Agreements to- Purchase from the Crown of  such proportion of the land, if divisible,  as the payments already made will  cover in proportion to the sale price of  the whole parcel.

That is  indeed a very appropriate name, for  Spartacus himself was a robber chief.  He was captured and turned in to  be  trained for a gladiator, but with 200  other,gladiators he made a dash for  liberty. Spartacus aud seventy others  ���������%ot away. He then rallied the slaves  of Rome about him and made a great  war. But Spartacus did not- fight  against the cruel gladiatorial sports;  he did not fight for the freedom of the  staves nor fur the abolition of slavery;  he fought for the plunder there was  in' it, and to get back to Thrace,  where he came from. As is always the  case where there is no groat principle  at issue, his army quarreled over the  spoils and divided, and his body was  found among the heaps of the slain at  Biundusium.     He   was   a brave man  'wtliout a moral principle. His name  >;- a fitting designation for the German Bolsheviki.
