C, FRIDAY,   JULY 18, 1919  "Tell mc what you Know is true:  I can guess a3 well as you."  $1.00 PER YEAR  TING OF THE  COUNCIL  Tax Rate for Current Year  Is Struck at 30 Mills.  City Poundkeeper Tenders His Resignation  The mayor and all the aldermen  with the exception of McCabe were  present at the regular meeting of the  city council on Monday evening.  A delegation from the peace celebration committee interviewed the  council in regard to the celebration  tomorrow. The visitors were assured that the council would con-  ' tribute one-half of the cost of the  celebration.  A letter was read from the private  secretary to the Hon. Mr. White,  finance minister, acknowledging receipt of a letter from the council  making enquiries about the duty on  raw cream.  A letter from the Nanaimo Automobile association, asking the council to endorse a resolution requesting the provincial government to refund to municipalities for road im-  grovement 50 per cent of tbe revenue  derived from automobile licenses,  was read, and the request was complied with.  A copy of a letter from-R. Bur-  rill, inspector of municipalities, to  F. A. McDiarmid, solicitor for B. C.  municipalities, was read. Mr. Bur-  rill expressed the opinion that municipalities did.not have the power  to issue refunding bonds.  The chief of police's report regarding the sanitary condition of  cow barns, outbuildings, etc., was  read and approved.  The   city  pouudmaster tendered  his resignation, which was accepted.  The past month's accounts  were  ordered to be-paid.  On motion of the chairman of  the finance committee, the tax levy  rate for the current year was fixed  at 30 mills.  The city assessor reported that  the assessment roll had been completed, and it was accepted by the  council.  The clerk reported that the license  fees had been refunded to the theater and the pool room for the period  that they had been closed during  the influenza epidemic.  The clerk announced that Hon.  J. H. King, minister of public  works, would like to meet the members of the city council and the  members of the board of trade at a  meeting on Tuesday evening.  Notice was given of a rate and tax  levy bylaw and a bylaw fixing a day  or date on which a penalty is to be  imposed for non-payment  of taxes.  NEW FAITH OF  gTHE UNITED STATES!July  may leave the noisy politicians alone  and turn to the Common People, sure  in his faith that the American public  mind is sound in the final appeal to  their freedom-loving instincts and  sense of public duty.  It has bee n said that American  and their president scarcely realized  howrth"e principles of .,world war sec-  tlement, urged on Wilson's fourteen  points, would react on American life  and cause the republic to assume , a  new role in international relationship.  The.covenant is, on the part of all the  states that subscribe to it, points out  the Round Table Quarterly, a practical as well as a formal recognition of  the principle that every community  has a dutv larger than that which it  owes to itself. It is in the nature of  an autocracy to widen its scope, but a  democratic people, however, regard  distant adveutures with suspicion.  They begin by using their power to  better their own lives, and they are  disposed to have no concern with the  fortunes of any but themselves and  themselves alone. The American re  public has been traditionally strong in  thia. Even Engladd has shown this  tendency. The Quarterly tritely ob  serves that the ruins of ciailization  are the price paid for the self-regarding nationalism of two mighty commonwealths.  But, as the Ronod Table says,    of  this   self-regarding  nationalism   the  league of nations is  the   formal   and  public renunciation.  In this document  the ^accredited spokesmen of   Britain  and America solemnly recognize   the  liberties of other than their own  citi  zens   as   a   trust which they can not  neglect or ignore.     They are   pledged  to   safeguard   the  frontiers of states  weaker than themselves.  They are to  meet at least once a year   to   review  the   relations of   all states with each  other, and are to establish   a   permanent organization to   keep   them   informed and   advised.   Together they  are   pledged   to   keep   the peace of  the world, which means  its  freedom.  War is the certain doom of a world in  which commonwealths are  dedicated  to no liberties but their own.  These fundamental truths have  been brought home to most thinking  people by the war. But not to some  of the old-line politicians of the United States. They are still zealous for  self regarding nationalism. They want  Ameaica to stand apart as she did at  the outbreak of the war when Belgium  and Serbia were being ravished, un  mindful of the challenge which an  autocratic military power in these  acts of aggression hurled at all freedom loving communities. They stand  by an outworn creed Wilson stands  for a new confession of faith that will  win. That much faith in the soundness of American democracy all  thoughtful people have.  OFREJUING  Blesin^s of Peace Will Be  GelebratedTomorrow at  a Gitizens' Picnic���������Parade, Dance and Children's Sports  Tomorrow will be a legal holiday  throughout Canada, and the return  of the world to a peace basis is to  celebrated in every city and hamlet  in the land.  In Grand Forks elaborate arrangement have been made for a  day of rejoicing. A committee has  been at work for a week arranging  the details, and subcommittees  have been placed in charge of the  various events.  As the program how stands, the  big attraction of the day will be a  citizens' picnic in the city park during the afternoon. To this a general  invitation has been issued, acd  everybody is urged to attend and to  bring their children and well filled  baskets. Refreshments, which will  be free, will be served at 5:30 p.m.  : The children's .sports, for,;which  adequate prizes have been provided,  will commence at 3 o'clock in the  afternoou.  At 8 o'clock in the evening a  grand peace parade of decorated  automobiles will leave the park for  a drive around the loop, going by  way of A. D. Morrison's ranch and  the greenhouses to Danville. It is  intended to provide room in the earn  for all the children on this tour of  the valley.  The celebration will be woundup  with a street dance on the cement  walk around the post officegrounds  That soldieis by paidpenfions while  still in the service, to take effect immediately upon the conclusion of their  hospital treatment, instead of awaiting their return to civilian life, was  approved by. the convention and will  before the Dominion gathering.  Production in Granby  Mines Shows  a Decline for the Year  The Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smelting and Power company produced 25,000,000 pounds of copper  dnring the fiscal year ending June 30  This is a drop of 20,000,000 pounds  in production compared with the previous fiscal period. The annual report  shows an apparent surplus of $27,00U  from the 1917-18 operations of tbe  company, but this is after maintenance of a 10 per cent dividend rate  and the setting aside of over $2,000,-  000 for special items. A one year renewal contract was gieven the American Metal company for handling the  product of the Granby. The previous  contract was for ten years and ex-  pirek on December 31, 1918. The  Nichols Copper company will continue  to ^reduce the Granby product, the  American Metal company acting as  agent.  STF.fi OF  PUBLIC WORKS  Hon. J. H. Kin<5 Pays a  Short Visit to the City.  On a Tour of Inspection  Through Province  Hon. J. H. King, minister of  public works, accompanied by hla  private secietary, J. E. ' Myers, arrived in the city Tuesday noon from  Victoria and remained until 6  o'clock, when he left for the eastern  districts of the province.  During the afteraoon a delegation  of our citizens visited the minister  at the Yale and had a short conference with him. He was also taken  for a drive through the orchard sections of the valley, and he expressed  gratification at the evidences of  prosperity here and the high state  of development that our agricultural  resources had reached  It had been planned to hold a  public, meeting in the even ng, and  to discuss with the minister the proposed irrrigation system for this vul-  iey.but Mr. King had made previous  arrangements to depart on the eveu-  ing train, and this* plan -had to.

The government should be asked to  refund the passage money paid by  veterans who removed their depend  ents from England prior to the armistice, in the opinion of the convention,  which passed a resolution to this  effect.  Another resolution provided that a  proper share of the profits from Canadian army canteens and stores overseas should be paid over to a fund  in Canada for the proper maintenance  of widows and orphans of Canadian  soldiers. v   j  The idea of a special  allowance  to j  assist returned men who by reason of'  partment of Industries Act, passed at  the 1919 session of the British Columbia legislature: A.

News of the City  Alex Robinson, of Nelson, former  lumberman of thi3 city, has been  showing C. D. VViuslow and V. S.  Hullett, of Colfax, Wash., over  some North Fork timber limits this  week. There is some talk of a deal  pending for the Lynch Creek sawmill.  Wm. Henderson, of Victoria, resident architect, inspected the Dominion building in this city this  week.  W. T. Cook, formerly teller iu tbe  Bank of Commerce, who has spent  over four years at the from and in  nospitals, haviDg been severely  wounded, returned to his home in  this city last night from overseas.  He was warmly welcomed by his  friends and tbe general public.  gret that previous arrangements prevented  him   from   atteuding     the  meeting.    But the question   of   irrigation,   he   pointed   out,   did   out  come under his department, but under the lauds department,  so   there  was really nothing that he could have  done even had he been  able to  attend  the  meeting.   He   desired   to  have it impressed upon  the people  of  this  district, however,   that  the  question of irrigation, and of bring  ing all the land possible under   cultivation,   was   thoroughly   in   line  with the policy of the present  provincial government, and as soon  as  the   engineers   submitted   their reports, and the   preliminary   detaiis  were arranged, he felt confident tbat  the rnouey   would be available  for  starting work on the  proposed system in thia valley.  Mr. King also referred briefly to  tbe Doukhobor question. He admitted tnat this would be a difficult  problem to handle. On his way  down from Greenwood, he said, be  had been pointed out some Doukhobor land that he did not think  would ever be developed except by  the Doukbobors.

FRIDAY, JULY .18; 1019  VS.  mess  Thinking 'men,,no matter in what part of  the world they maybe, give prominence to the  thought that there must be a common basis of  agreement if we are to effect an adjustment of  the differences that crop up between the  workman and the'employe!-. In "the conduct  of every husiness differences arise, and when  these are discussed with a view to arriving at  the best settlement possible, the conclusion  reached is general lv satisfactory. Where  would a business be at if -either /partner concluded, the circumstances were, advantageous  to him to start something? .It, would not be  long before the partnership was dissolved and  the business demoralized.  The partnership between labor and capital  is me/'ely a business'arrangement to maintain  p.-oduction. Naturally, differences arise, grievances have to b--i adjusted, but .adjustment is  ody possible when the two parties discuss  matters amiably and rensonably.  Just now both sides of  ihe   question   must  be considered���������there are always  to  sides  lo  ���������any. dispute or   discussion.     Human    nature  /tends toward the pursuit -oi' -the  shadow, and  we must not listen to   the   unsettling  suggestion of the man who  looks  for trouble.    You  r ;ii'iom!.iir the old story of the crossing a bridge  with a bone in his month. He saw his shadow  in the water, and thinking it was another dog  about to try to take his bone, he growled, and  as he growled, the bone dropped in the   water  and   was  lost.    Better to hang on to what we  have, rather than be deceived   by the shadow-  that some one may be trying to picture before  onr eyes.  Everyone knows there are underlying forces  that are cbmrelling changes. Employers are not  afraid of advanced ideas, for every day in the  conduct of a large industry the adoption of  new methods and readjustment of old are of  daily occurrence. Large concerns are doing all  that is possible to improve the circumstances  ;uid conditions of the worknfen-partners of the  industry so that labor will be carried on in  contentment and peace of mind..  The cause of trouble scans to bo the difference in how changes are to lie brought about.  Before the war, great industrial changes were  effected by the sane and natural process of evolution, and it would appeal- as if the convulsion  of war had liberated forces which were work-'  in<>- (iiiietlv previous   to   11)14, but which now  machiuery out before we have new to put in.  If this is attempted, the probability is that ahole  will be smashed in the bottom of the boat, and  if so, where will we be?  ��������� Such a course is not reasonable^���������it. means  destruction / for all concerned. Rather, all  should unite in the effort to bring the ship to  port. Bashness will not get us anywhere.'  We can not afford to be irrational, it will  not get us anywhere. In addition to the interests of ourselves and the interests of the  employer, there, is always the community to be  considered. The interests of any one can not  be isolated; they are interdependent. If we exercise moderation, give thought to our course,  we will make harbor safely despite the-.clangers of these troublous times.  f-  Extravagance rots character; train youth  iway from it. On the other hand, the habit of  saving money, while it stiffens the will, also  brightens the energies.

It used to. be easier before the war and   when  the bars were open. We-learned   to  rive   for  true fellowship during the   war.    Some  o-ave  money freely. Some time, some sympathy; the  women���������God bless t.hcm���������gave socks till their  fingers   were   sore.   .Some  have  given  sons.  Some have.given fathers, brothers. Some gave  limbs, others gave health; some gave  lives���������  all for a great ideal���������the ideal   of oitizenship  of the highest kind. It was easy  to  give.   It  was easy to spend. Now we are asked to save  for citizenship.   We have' been forced by the  war to save.    In a, country which   had  never  had   a bond   floatation exceeding '.$5,000,000,  we had five loans-in three years with subscriptions, from #97,000,000 to ^084,000,000  each.'  We subscribed ^1,400,000,000 during the war.  While   we  saved   this   or loaned it to the nation, it'means a big interest charge   to   meet,  and it makes financing-ail the   more  difficult.  The thrift.stamp campaign'is to continue the  good worlc, to give us all a stake in the country.    Huge credits are demanded if Canada is  to get a fair share of the trade   in   the   reconstruction  period.   Fifty millions is needed to  handle  the   lumber  situation   alone.    Thrift  stamps are to raise that $50,000,000  by small  economies,' by   small   self-denials, by making  better citizens of us all, with   money to lend  instead of being perpetual borrowers. Twenty-  five cents buys a thrift' stamp; sixteen buys a  war savings stamp. Teach your children to be  good   cif'zeus.    Be  a good citizen  yourseif  Buy   a   thrift  stamp.
