 V7  Kettle Valley Orchardist  37THYEAR���������No   13  GRAND FORKS   B  C, FRIDAY, JANUARY 25, 1918  1  May  V  or Gives An. Exhaustive  Report of City's Present  Condition  ^  HP  V.to-  Mayor Acres, at the council mpet-  - ing last Monday evening, said that  during the past two/years .the "city  Had redeemed .S5000-.debentures of  bylaw 2S, saving 8250 , in interest  and '$150 ,in ' sinking fund and 2^  per cent otf the -face value,"equalling  8125, a total saving of $525.;per'year  .   during the life of the bond. Another  ' debenture" of 814,000 had been.taken  up at- a   saying of .$980 in interest  ,fl and'sinking fund'of 8470, a' total of  81450; 835,000 which become due  - in 1919, and were carrying 3-i- per  cent in the bank, had been invested  in,war bonds at 5 percent, giving a  profit of 1-J , per cent in interest  alone, equalling 8525 of a profit in  interest per year, or a total of $1030  for .two years. The bonds were purchased at $95.75 and are payable on  August 1,  1919, at #100, which  is  ** a gain of 44/ per cent on the face  value, and will give a profit of al  most $1500, which .altogether wil1  be over $2500 "profit. By. this' investment the city will make this  82500, which otherwise it could not  have done. Of the sinking fund  ��������� $5100. had been invested in Victory  bonds at 5^- per cent, which gives a  profit of 2 per cent per year in interest alone, amounting to 8102 gain  per year. By financing in this way,  in the last two years the city has  saved $2500 in interest per year,  and over SI500 per year in profits,  amounting to approximately 84000  per year, which offsets the loss of  the liquor licenses.  The total bonded indebtedness  of  . the city at the' end of 1916 wa-;  $195,300. ' .o offset this,'there was  a sinking fund of 849,215 3S, leaving a clear debt of $146,084.62. The  sinking fund during some of the  past years had been allowed to get  behind,the city not. making its annual payments as it 'should  have done, so -that on January 1,  1916, the city was ������42,923,35 short.  You .will readily see that this  amount will have to be made up  within the next few years. Unless  something unforeseen turns up, .the  only way in which it can be met is  to issue new debentures, anci during the present crisis, which this  country and the whole world is undergoing, it 'would be impossible to  to sell these debentures at anything  like an attractive price. During the  ���������past two years the council has made  up and placed to the credit of   the  , ly another *i 100 per year. At the  lend of 1917 the city had no notes in  'the bank; cash on hand *826,besides  89100 paid into the^ sinking fnud.  ,If during the next four year the  city can meet its liabilities, the sinking fund is kept up and the *36,000  covered, it will mean that H6,000  will be eliminated from the annual  expenditures, which will .leave the  city in ve.ry good financial circumstances. "I think," said to9 mayor,  "that the the figures will show that  at the present time the city is better off financially than it has been  for a"great many years. .In addition  to the regular"amount, the current  expenses have been kept down as  much'as possible. The amount of  this reduction is considerably less  than in former years."   ���������,  "Some remarks have been made  in regard to'public improvements,"  continued the 'mayor,."that more  should : be ��������� made. I do not  agree with this policy, -with the  present conditions' and the crisis  which \ve are how going through.  It will be time enough, to make new  improvements when conditions have  righted themselves. At present'I  think we should .be content to do  only repair work.  "During the past two years, where  it was thought it would be of great  advantage to do- new work, this  policy was carried out. Bridge street  is in better'shape than it has been  for years; also the bridge on Bridge  street Taking "the city as a' whole,  I think the streets are in very good  condition. Some work will have to  done this year on sidewalks, but  outside of that I do not know of any  very importaut new work which will  have to be undertaken. The system  of plowing the snow off the streets  was inaugurated'last year and has  giveu great satisfaction.  "The lighting system, I am given  to understand, is now in better  shape than it has ever been before.  Twenty-six hundred dollars was expended for new street lighting, mostly in the West end. Unfortunately  the South Kootenay Power company  raised the light 50 per cent a few  months ago. As it was late in the  year.no action was taken. This  raise amounts to $3000 per year,  and is a very important question  which the water and light committee has to go into very carefully and  devise some some scheme to offset it  {Continued on Page 2.)

At the Victoria convention last  week, H. W. Collins .was re-elected  representative for the Kettle Ilivpr  district of the British Columbia  Fruit Growers' association.  The first meeting of the 19 IS city  council was held in (he council  chamber at, 8 o'clock last1 Monday  evening. -Mayor Acres and Aid.  Harkness, McArdle, McCallum, McCabe, McDonald and Schnitter  were present.  'Returning Officer Iiutton reported the result of .the recent munici ���������  pal. election. The report was received. .  M/yor .Acres  congratulated   the  ^aldermen on their election.  The mayor gave a detailed accoun1  of the financial condition of the city  at present'and a resume of the work  done by the various departments  during the,past year.  A letter from J. W.-Wirth, clerk  of North Vancouver, stated that an  attempt would probably be made at  the coming session of the legislature to repeal the amendment to the  municipal clauses act requiring pay  irieut of the current year's "taxes on  property before it can be registered,  and he wished to know if .the council favored the repeal of the amend ,  ment orv not. On motion of Aid.  McCabe and McArdle, the clerk was  instructed to write to Mr. Wirth and  inform him that tfie Grand Forks  city council is opposed to the repeal  of the amendment.  The mayor appointed the fqllew-  ing standing committees .for 1918:  Finance���������Aid. McCallum, Hark  ness and McArdle.  Board of Works���������Aid. Schuitter,  McCallum and McDonald.  Fire, Water and Light���������Aid.  Harkness, McDonald  and  McCabe.  Health and Relief���������Aid. McArdle,  Schnitter and McCallum.  Cemetery and Public Parks���������Aid.  McCabe, Harkness  and   McDonald.  A brief recess was taken for the  purpose of allowing the committees  to select their chairmen. When the  council reassembled the committees  reported that the first named gentleman on each committee had been  chosen as chairman. The reports  were accepted..  The auditor read the financial  statement for the past year, which  was accepted, and the auditor's account of $:'-''0 was ordered to be  paid.

Excerpts from a letter written by  George Traunweiser, who is attached  to the training squadron of the royal  Hying corps at Oxford, England, to  squadrou.    We   shifted   here    two  weeks ago.    Oxford   is rather nice,  prove   much   cheaper.    I   think I  wrote and told you-that I had-start-  ed flying again.   The medical board  gave   me   general service after one  month's 'high flying' at home.' The  high     Hying     was,  or   is,   to    be  done   in   the   air and not in town,  so it 'cramps my style'  a   wee   bit.  However, I was awfully, bucked  at  resuming flying.    The_ game  grips  and has a strange  attraction, and   I  hated standing by"and watching the  other chaps doing all the stunts. Of  course, the additional two bones per  diem didn't matter; but still one can  .use it, you'knoAi.   When we shifted  here  I  fitw an R.ES.   Over it is a  two seated biplane of  160  h.p.,   12  cylinder. It was fine when we started���������six of us,   in   formation.    But  after a bit the wind came up and.we  ran into a snowstorm.    The  clouds  were only about 500'feet up, and  it  began to be an unpleasant trip. Two  chaps  went" down   to  a " field, one  turned back and the others got lost".  Two of us stuck to   a  railway   line  and kept on.    I was afraid to risk a  landing in the wind.   We ' 'blinded'  on, dazed and completely frightened,  but at last got out of the  storm and  I made out Oxford in the   distance.  What a relief! It just   looked   like  paradise   to   me.    I   made a good  anding; received the commendation  of  the   C. O. as having  put up   a  splendid show. The two that landed  in   the   field   crashed���������one  on his  nose"and the   other  upside   down.  The   chaps that  were   lost   landed  ahout  forty   miles   away, and   the  chap that   turned   back   got   back  safely. By a strange coincidenoe.the  two that crashed were majors, one a  Canadian from Calgary.. They were  not   hurt   much.    One lost  a  few  teeth aud a bit of skin.  "I am going onto "Bristol Fright-  ers" next week���������a splendid machine with a 250 h.p. Rollo-Royce  engine, a level speed of 125 and can  be dived up to 275 miles per hour.  It's a beautiful bus, and can be  stunted like a scout. It is a two-  seater and carries four machine  guns, two synchronized, shooting  through the propeller, one over the  top plane and the other used by the  observer. It is used for fighting, reconnaissance, escort duty and trench  "strafing." The latter is anew work  ���������done by flying very low along  the enemy trenches, and using your  machine guns on the enemy, and  also for attacking troops and transports. It's a bit exciting diving  down at about 250 miles per hour  with your guns tearing away at  about 600 shots each per minute,  and then yanking her outahout ten  feet from the ground and trusting  to speed and luck that Fritzie's  hardware will go by. They chuck  everything���������rifles, machine guns,  bombs and field gun stuff���������at you,  but it is really surprising how seldom they hit seriously. I hope to  get out there by February, and  guess I will just about make it. I  will have in nearly 100 hours flying  solo by then, so I will be more or  less of a veteran. Most chaps' go out  with only about 40 hours,  so it will be a big advantage to me  ���������in fact, the extra experience is  invaluable.  "I had a very quiet Christmas and  DecemberProduction at Anyox 3,549,310 Lbs.; Grand  Forks 919,078  The neV earnings of the Granby  Consolidated Mining, Smelting &  Power company approached $500,-  000 in December. This is in excess  of the quarterly dividend requirement, which is 8374,362.  The copper ( production of the  Granby in December was 4,458,388  pounds, of which 3,549,310 were by  Anyox and 919,078 by Grand Forks  This is comparable with 2,S86,489  pounds in November, of which 2,'-  458,841 pounds were by Anyox and  427,648 pounds by Grand Forks.  This is an increase of more than  1,500,000 pounds in December, of  which more than 1,000,000 pounds  was by Anyox and nearly 500,000  pounds by Grand Forks. Thefiguaes  show that December was the record  month for Anyox.  The December earning for Anyox  approached $450,000 and those- at  Grand Forks 850,000, according to  figures received from New York.  The lack of proportion between the  earnings at the smelters results from  a difference in costs and ore contents. The cost at Anyox is near 11  cents a pound, while that at Grand  Forks is in excess of 19 cents. The  contents at Anyox is more than 30  pounds of metal to the ton of ore  and at Grand Forks 14 pounds.  Conditions were favorable for a  smooth and uninterrupted run at  Anyox in December.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 25, 1018  THE FOOD SUPPLY  The following personal letter, which should  ' be   carefully  considered by our readers, has  been received'by The Sun from W. J. Hanna,  the Canadian food controller:  "It is unnecessary for me to  point  out  to  you the serious world food situation  and  the  imperative need of encouraging increased production during 1918.   I am   writing to thank  the newspaper editors for what they are  doing  to  make known the facts and to arouse  ' the people to a realization   of the gravity  of  the problem. I want also to  suggest  the  advisability of stimulating local interest, as much  as possible, in ways and means by which   production  may  be  increased in each and every  community. In this work the newspapers can  perform an invaluable  public  service and  at  the  same  interest  their readers  in practical  discussions which have a direct bearing upon  local  problems  in  connection with the effort  for increased   production.  ��������� I  am taking the  liberty of suggesting a few  of the questions  which might be discussed.  "In some of our provinces there is certain  legislation restrictive of agricultural production. It may be necessary under normal conditions, but in times of national peril such  laws should be suspended or amended. Then,  too, most of the provinces coutrol their own  game and fish laws; the supply of food could  be considerably increased by making use of  game and fish to a greater extent than is possible at present, if these laws  were carefully  may be the greatest possible factor in tlie successful prosecution of the war. This at once  suggests a large number of questions in regard to the employment of men in unnecessary  work,,multiplication of services/etc. By discussion of some of these problems through the  newspapers much good could be accomplished.  "Information which this office can give.you  in connection with any of these, matters will  bo supplied gladly, and we shall'welcome any  suggestions which you may be good enough to  offer. We have established a general, information division which"is engaged in collecting  the latest available data in regard to the questions which I have mentioned." This  division  ft   - r  is at your service."  (T  '-"\  '1  ���������4  ."I  V  We . have  some excel  ently good: ��������� values 'in ���������. watches ��������� for boys.

Premier Brewster says the result did not surprise him. Ditto in The Sun office. . The reform government has not been as brilliant a  success as the people anticipated; and, anyway, an interruption of prosperity is invariably blamed on the government of the day,  even though the days of plenty may have been  halted by war or an act of God. .  ooking  The provincial legislature opens on February 7. As the opposition will be numerous  enough to make it interesting for the  govern  ment, we expect to receive reports of a  lively session. ' '���������  very  Mrs. Ralph Smith is . British Columbia's  wdman M.P.P. She has the reputation of  being an eloquent speaker. Being a woman,  this is, of course, a inherited gift and not an  acquired art.  considered in the light of the urgent need for  food and special regulations put in force with  a view to utilizing to the utmost every available source* of food supply while the present  emergency continues. The keeping of hogs  within the limits of Canadian municipalities  has been strongly advocated, but is practically  prohibited by existing municipal restrictions.  The people living in suburban areas adjoining  the cities and towns of Germany maintain and  raise in this way nearly half a million hogs in  excess of the total hog production of Canada.  Poultry keeping within municipal areas, under  reasonable restrictions, would also be of ^en-  eral benefit. Legislation controlling and reducing the number of useless dogs in the country would do much to promote the production  ofsheep.^  "Small-lot gardening should also be encouraged. In this way an abundant supply of. fresh  vegetables would be assured and land now  devoted to market gardens could be used for  grain. This year the idea ought to be not merely to grow potatoes, but to grow good potatoes  and all kinds of vegetables.   Last year th/ni-  The people have to .economize these war  times, and governments���������federel, provincial  and municipal���������should do likewise.

I do not think it advisable to increase the light rate if it  is possible to avoid it. The lighting shows a very good  p ofit, but if it were not for this the city would have a  very hard time paying its running expenses.  "The tax rate has been 30 mills for some years past.  In the last two years we have been unable to lower  this. During 1917 it was found necessajy to hold, a tax  sale, and the results were very satisfactory. To avoid  tax sale ������7185 was paid into the treasury. Cash at tax  sale, $1550; redeemed since sale, 82360. It cost approximately $1300, besides a large amount of property  reverted to the city, some of which will now no doubt  be redeemed. The total taxes, including school taxes,  amount to about S40,700. About ������17,000 of this was  collected outside the tax sale.   '  *  Who Made the Kaiser?

The reason sound travels  faster'by telephone'is because it is .accel-  erated'by electricity���������not very'.much, but  enough for the purpose.  /So you see the telephone .is the quick-  jest���������the surest to  send, the  quickest to  reach the'ear you seek, and the'easiest to  bring the answer back.

Women ought to have part time  jobs, according to a college professor;  devoting the rest of their time to raising families. A good, practical suggestion. Caring for a family occupies  not more than, say, fifteen" hours of  a woman's day.

When the American troops first  marched through the streets of Paris,  says a writer in "'Everybody's Maga  ziue, there were many comments made  upon their appearance. A great many  times the French said, "Oh, ils sont  faineux!"���������"They're fine!'-' And several times came the comment, "How  tall and thin they are!" Once or twice,  with a"hearty emphasis, almost of admiration, "Heavens, how ugly -they  are!" and 1 didn't realize until I saw  them there together how the Lincoln  type of powerful, "rawboned, sincere  ugliness has persisted "in many Ameri"  cans. ��������� ' '   *   ',  One working woman kept saying,  'It makes me want to cry when I see  their flag here," and an old man said,  "I hope there is a German spy on  every street corner." Another woman,  jumping up and down in excitement,  exclaimed, "Oh, I am so glad I _ am  going to see them! I never saw an  American in my life."  But"the pleasautest remark of all  was passed by a middle-aged woman  who said, after she had seen- the Uni  ted States soldiers, "Every time I see  the American flag it makes me think,  fNo, the Germans^yere wrong. Ideals  are the realest things there are.' "  gests this as a refutation   of. the  old  belief   that   a  prosperous   American  household wastes what would .feed   a  French family. .To quote from the ar  tide:  '/Can any one go away from the  table hungry after a thick chowder, or  barley broth, or combinations of vegetables and meat, fish and other stock  rich in nourisnment?, .  "Soup has anesthetic value as well  as a calory vcjue. Suppose there is a  platter of corned or ala mode1 beef for  the main meal of ��������� the -day. Slice it  thin, arrange carefully, wreathe with  parsley," and preface it with a potato  chowder that is hot, rich and satisfying. Your maculines will reniembor  that meal as an extra good one.  "Perhaps your Sunday roast beef  looks a- bit scant as vou survey it as  material for Monday night's dinner.  And some one with a 'standing invi  tation' telephones you that he will  drop in for a bite. A substantial soup  comes to the rescue."  Thin, brittle, colorless and scraggy  ihair ds mute evidence -of a neglected  scalp; of dandruff���������that awful scurf.  There is nothing so destructive to  the hair as dandruff. It robs the hair  of its lustre," its strength and' its very  life; eventually producing a feve'rish-  ness and iteihing of the scalp,*which if  not remedied causes the hair roots to  shrink, loosen and die���������then the- hair  falls out fast. A little Danderine tonight���������now���������any time���������will surely save  your hair. - -   -  Get a small bottle of Knowlton's  Danderine from any drug store. You  surely can have beautiful hair and lots  of it if "you will just try a little Danderine.    Save your hair!    Try it!  I rousers for sVomen?  Will women wear trousers? That  grim question has long been hotly debated. Since the war trousers have  become realities to those women who  are doing men's work in order that  they may be released for fighting". In  Paris, however, trousers for women  have more than a strictly utilitarian  use  The Paris correspondent of Harper's  Bazar writes, in the January issue:  "More and more trousers are being  worn indoors instead of robes that  cling and cling and cling. Fashioned  of the richest of tissues are these  trouser-frock���������trousers of gorgeous  metallic stuffs below jackets of soft  velvets, trousers of velvet below coats  rich with embroideries, and exquis  itely filmy mousselines. In the salons  of Martha Gauthier in the rue des  Capucines, there is a creation of nutty-  colored velvet embroidered most deco-  ratively with rose and blue thread���������  the square Chinese coat falling un-  girdled over'embroidered velvet trou  sers of the straight variety."  Mo Reason Why He Should  A man from the north of England  was spending a few days in London  with a friend and, after a busy morning of sight-seeing, the Londoner took  him to a large restaurant ot noon,  thinking that lunching there would  be a novel experience for the  countryman. The visitor appeared to  enjoy the luncheon, bnt he kept looking anxiously toward the door.  "What are you watching?" asked  his friend.  "Well," was the quiet reply,-"Aa's  keeping an eye on ma topcoat."  "Oh, don't-brother about that,"  said the other. "You don't see me  watching mine."  "No," observed the visitor, "thoo  has no caal to watch. It's ten minutes sin thine went."  "The Canadians in France,"  '     A Great War Map  Canadian homes will no longer have  difficnlty   in  following   the Canadian  troops in France. There has just been  issued   a   map   of the European war  area that clearly shows every point of  interest  that has been mentioned in  dispaches since the  Canadian   forces,  first landed in France.    It  has  been  made especially for the great Canadian   weekly,- the   Family   Herald and  Weekly   Star   of Montreal, and is a  credit indeed to   Candian   enterprise.  It  is a   marvel of  detail and yet not  crowded.   ^It   is   in   four colors  and  about 2������x3|-"feet and folded  into   a  very neat cover, about _5xl0   .inches.  The map is surrounded by a border of  .the   regimental    badges  and   coat of  arms   of  nearly   every battalion that  left Canada, from   Halifax   to   Vancouver.    Every'important  point  can  be recognized at once.   That  portion  of the map covering   France  is   in  a  soft color with   names  of  towns and  battle scenes in   black,   easily   recognizable.    The map is endorsed by returned military experts as most   complete aud accurate in detail. The map  could not be produced, except in such  large quantities as The Family Herald  will   use, at  less   than  two dollars a  copy, yet it can    be   had   absolutely  free with The Family Herald.  The publishers of,The Family Herald and Weekly Star' for several  months back have been fighting hard  against the ^ necessity of increasing  their subscription rates, but eventu  ally had to come to it like most other  papers. The increase, however, is a  mere trifle���������twenty five cents a year,  making their new rate $1.25���������and  with the year's subscription they will  include a copy of this great war map  free of charge. This is certainly a generous offer, and one that Canadians  will appreciate. Many expected a  much larger increase in the subscription price of The Family Herald, and  are surprised at the small extra  amount charged.  The enormous circulation of The  Family Herald and Weekly Star  should be still greater when this offer  becomes known.
