The old adage, however, is as true today as it was of old,  "You can not have your cake and eat  Two Mayoralty Candidates���������Nice LittleAlder-  manic Fight in West  Ward���������Dearth of Candidates for School  Board  it." The province had been spending  a great deal more each year than it  had been receiving There comes a  time, however, when that sort of  thing must stop.  Nor-is  it  necessary to  emphasize  that   the   country's obligation to the  former members of the   Canadian  ex  pedrtionary force   and the conditions  resultant from five years   of ^war   are  the responsible factors for a still more  or less top-heavy   policy of   expenditure. These are, of course, uncontrollable features of   government,   which  are common to the whole of the empire.    They constitute the tolI of war.  Nevertheless it is a condition   that  is  not calculated to add to the  popular  ity of   any   government, particularly  when that government has been obliged  to follow   a predecessor whose  lavish  hand in the matter of public expendi  ture was nob hampered by  considera  tions   which   have   made  themselves  felt during the past twelve months.  Reversion to a policy .which contemplates an even ledger balance,  however, has been responsible for rehabilitating the credit of the province  and the genuince endeavor on the  part'of the administration to get back  to normal has been evident to those  financial interests to whom the prov-  ince has disposed of its bonds from  rime to time. Recent flotations, moreover, have demonstrated to the country that British Columbia is keeping  her house in order to the extent at  least of cutting her cloth according to  her measure.  - Perhapf one os the year's most outstanding patterns of progressive legislation which already has proved its  merit is that which created a department of industries. Designed to benefit the returned man in particular,  there is every indication that in a  very short time it will become a not  inconsiderable factor ��������� in developing  the province into industrial promi  nonce.  The public untilities act has not  been blessed with an altogether' un-  checkered career. The action of the  Dominion government in removing  certain public utilities from its jurisdiction ha^j left   the commission   pro-  The city election has now advanced to a point from which the  candidates are able to tell, with reasonable accuracy, where they stand.  In the mayoralty race are Dr. G.  H. Acres ana H. A. Sheads. The  chances appear to be in favor of the  doctor winning out. He has already  served the city for three terms as  chief executive, and has proved him-  self to be thoroughly competent as  well as wide-awake in looking after  the city's interests. Mr. Acres'  nomination was proposed by Rev.  E. A. St. George Smyth and seconded by W. S. McPherson.  In the West ward tbere promises  to be a lively fight for aldermanic  honors There are tour candidates  in the field already. These are: G. A.  Eyans, proposed by Robert Cam p-  bell and seconded by E. C. Henui-  ger; and Harry Lightfoot and J. B.  .McDonald, and it is reported that  T. A. Love also intends to enter the  race. We can pick one of the  winners in this ward.  In the East ward George Hull and  Frank Miller are in the field. These  candidates may be elected by acclamation.  For school trustees Jeff Davis and  T, Padgett have been induced to  run. Three more candidates are  need.  It is reported that Ed Taylor will  be the candidate for police commissioner.

OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, JANUARY 9, 1920  In an endeavor to injure Dr. Acres' candi-  dature for the mayoralty, onr local contemporary today rehashes the story about the  choque for the To.wnsite company's taxes.  This transaction was fully explained in these  copmns a year ago, and; the explanation  showed that the doctor was in'nowise to  blame for the outcome of the fiasco; The  Townsite company had offered to pay $3000  on account of taxes against its property in  this city. The offer was accepted by the city.  When the cheque reached the local solicitor  for the company from Toronto, howeve.i, it  was found that it was made out for $2340,--  $060 having been deducted as payment of an  insfalmentoirthe high school site, purchased  by the city from the company. This instalment had already ..been paid. Dr. Acres  pointed out this fact to the local solicitor.  Mr. Mackenzie, who is the local solicitor  of the company, stated that he would send the  cheque to Toronto correction, and as the company's Toronto solicitors were a reputable  firm, he had no doubt that the cheque would  be returned for the full amount agreed upon.  But it was never returned. At - no time did  the cheque for $2340 leave Mr. Mackenzie's  hands, and at no time was it i-x the pessessiori  of Dr. Acres or any other city ��������� official. Under  the circumstances as stated above, which are  admittedly true, it is hard to 'see how a case  prejudicial to Dr. Acres can be made out of  this story.  During his former terms as chief executive  Dr. Acres made a brilliant record. He was  capable, and at all time busied him in spreading information about Grand Forks to the outside world���������just the kind of mavor we need  for the coming year, when we look for a,business revival and rnewed activity in the development of the district. The ratepayers  will make no mistake in "electing Dr. Acres  mayor.  The citizens should take more interest in  the election of school trustees. This is really  the most responsible office in the city, and it is  hoped three more good candidates will' come  forward before 2'o'clock next  Monday after  noon.  The West ward aldermanic candidates will  Jiave the most fun in this election. We expect to see Tlie Sun man elected by an  overwhelming majority, because he never went  after anything yet that he really wanted that  he didn't get.  Ladies and Gentlemen: s  Acting on the urgent request of many of my  f.iicnds, and after consulting mv own inclina-  tions in the matter^ I have djecided to offer  myself as a candidate for alderman of the  | West ward in the forthcoming municipal election. If you see fit to elect me, it will be my  earnest endeavor to work for the advancement  of our city as a whole: but shall, of course,  consider it my first.duty to look" after'the interests of my own ward, when those interests  do not conflict with the forward movement of  any other section of the city. To be more explicit, if an industry were about to locate in-  the city, I would consider it. my first duty to  endeavor to induce it to locate in my ward,  but if the concern should like a location- in  another part of the city better,,! would work  just as hard to have it locate there. In other  words, if I failed jn my ffsrt object, I would  not. sulk and attempt to drive it out of the  country, as I fully realize that an industry located within a radius of fifty mile's"of the city  is of an indirect benefit to the community.1  After tho bonds have been taken care of, I  believe that every dollar that the city can  spare should be expended for permanent  public improvements, because, after . all, the  final factor in inducing new settlers to locate  here is the attractiveness of the- city.  I am. opposed to the construction of any  more new. wood sidewalk, but believe -."that  wherevbi' the ratepayers are willing- to pay.  their share of the cost, that concrete-walks  should be built.  At present there is a large area of unproductive land on the Columbia flats. I believo  that a portion at least of this, land could be  brought under cultivation if the city were to  furnish water at a reasonable coss for agricultural purposes to settlers until the proposed irrigation system is completed. If elected I shall do everything I can to bring such  a policy to fruition.  We should not entirely confine our work to  the needs of the present, but plan for the requirements and comforts of future generations.  With this object in view, I should favor a  policy aiming at the creation of a city park.  I believe that a small park adjacent to the  business center would be of more practical  use to the citizens than a vast stretch of wild  land on the outskirts of the city. For this reason I, would favor the former. The city owns  a great deal of real estate at present, and if  funds for improving the park are not available  at present, the land for it should at least be  reserved. . .'"  In civic work, I believe that all work that  can not be done by the regular city employees  can be done .more economically and to better  advautage to the city by the the tender and  contract system than by day labor or any  other method.  Lastly, I believe , we have all done  enough talking about making Grand Forks a  great citv. It is now time to take off our coats  and do some real manual labor to make our  boast good.  As to my record as a citizen, it is only necessary to state that I have now lived here  eighteen years and have never yet been hangee.  Yours truly,  G. A. EVANS.  Grand Forks, B.

Ladies and Getlemen:  Having been requested by a large number of the ratepayers of the city to allow  my name to stand for-'nnmination for  Mayor, I have consented to do so; and if  elected I will work for the best interests  of our city.

"You're wrong, sir!"
. A   little   nettied,  Taft   continued
without hewing.    Presently, in  an
swer   to   another strong  assertion,
came again:
"You're wroDg, sir!"
Mr. Taft scowled, but  continued
his speech.
"You're wrong, sirl"   again   rang
out the voice.
Angrtly addressing the persistent
interrupter, Mr. Taft cried, -'Look
here, I could tell this man something about the government that
would make his hair stand on end!"
"You're wrong again, sir!" came
from tbe critic, as, amid the roars of
the crowd, he stood up and removed

have you ever thought
that advertising puts you in
good company? 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
' 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 ot a great advertiser will be mentioned.
The same rule is true of
smaller citiejr 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.
