Victory and ' War Bonds  Arc Pledged for Funds  to Retire Debentures  Amounting to $55{000  Lists   Are   to    Be"   Kept-  Open  Up  to    the  End  oi'   the   Present Month.-  Req nests   From    Many  So urces  Victoria, July 14.���������On account of  representations from many sources,  and by reason of the fact that it is its  desire to obtain.as full a registration  as possible, the government has do  eided to extend the period in which,  all eligible voters may guin admission,  to. the new' provincial lists until the  end of the present month.       N  .This decision applies to-all districts  alike, and in making the announcea  meat this morning, Hon. t D? Mac  L������,an, minister of education and pro-'  vinoia.1 sec-rosary, urges upon every  qualified elector the desirubilitv of  bis -.or- her name appearing on the  voters'list now  being compiled.  Imports reaching the parliament  buildings indicate, that registration-in  the outlying districts has been slow,  and utiles.-: there is considerable mora  interest taken during the extended  period it is feared that not more than  half of the rural electorate will have  been included in the new lists.  It would be well for voters to bear  id mind that if their names are not  filed with the registrars named to  take the same for the new  cial voters'list, they'will be disen  frauchised from voting on the prohibition 'plebiscite this fall, and in  the provincial election, which it is  generally believed will follow soon  after the former vote is taken. Don't  postpone the registration for a mo-J  merit. Do it now. The date of clos j  jug the new provincial voters' list!  has been fixed by the government  for Ati'-u.-t 1.  A crisis, in municipal financing  has apparently been averted by the  loyalty of the 'citizens of Grand  Forks to their city.  On the l'Dt.h Inst, debentures is-  .sued twenty years ago to the amount  of 8-15,500 became due. To retire  these and another'i-sue of 811,700,  which matured in May last, the city  was, bv an act oft he late se.-sion of  the legislature, granted p-'rmi-si>n  to issue 855,000 of refunding de  bentures.- These bonds have o en  issm-d andqdacerl with an eastern  financial firm for dispn-al, but owing to the-depression of tbe money  market no buyers have   been found.  in the meantime the old bonds  arrived in the city promptly on  time,' and payment was demanded  But there were do available funds  with which to comply with the demand. This was the ugly situation  that confronted the people of the  city this morning;  " A citizens' meeting was,.called for  this evening to endeavor ' to devise  some meads whereby the good repu  tation of city in financial matters  might be retained. Mayor Acres,  who presided, laid the situation 'be-,  fore those present very plainly, and  in this task he was ably aided by  Chairman Hull of the finance com  mittee and by Manager Nibs of tbe  Bank of Commerce.  The situation was Fquari-ly faced  by those present, and th^ opinion  prevailed thai at all hazards tbe city  must be kept from defaulting in payment or from going under a receivership. After a iree discussion it was  ,     '     decided   to   h duce cii/vus h ddirg  R<  B  From August 1 Liixuiy  Will Be Collected By  Means oi' Internal Revenue Stamps  Instructions have now been received by the-inland revenue department olliuial.i on the coast regarding  tlie'deoision to institute a new system -of collecting luxury taxes.  This new system will go into' efleet  on August 1 Up till tha.t rlate. the  system instituted when the taxes  were imposed will continue in ell'ect.  The new system will mean a great  saving of labor to merchants. Instead  of having to keep track of the  amounts collected on innumerable  sales, turning in the collections and  duplicate sales slips to the depart  merit, it will only be necessary to buy  a quantity of.inlank revenue Stamps  at intervals, these stamps to be attached to the article sold or to the ue-  ceipt and defaced There may be objection to the uew .system on the score  that in some ���������' eases it will involve  heavy initial -j outlay on the part of  the merchant.

FRIDAY, JULY 10.  1920  The .splendid loyalty of the citizens of Grand  Forks    to   their    city     in." coming    to   the  aid, financially, of their municipality, and thus  save  it   from   humiliation   and  the stigma of  going into the hands of a receiver, .deserves  all the praise that the people can bestow upon  those who have pledged their private  Wealth  to meet an  extraordinary emergency.   While  the  circumstances leading' up to the present  plight of the city are peculiar in many inspects,  yet the ratepayers do not feel inclined  to absolutely absolve the present and past councils  from blame for .not having taken steps to avert  the climaxprecipitatcd today, although the extenuating circumstance, may be advanced that  enabling legislation was lacking for the conn-  oil to act earlier iu the wav which it did.   But  some other course might have been found.  think the denouement of the situation has  demonstated this fact. The incident should  serve as a warning to future councils to guard  our city's honor more zealously, and also act  as a reminder to the ratepayers that they  must take a deeper interest in the financial  affairs of the city. We have k'ept the publication of this weak's issue of The Sun back a  dav in order to enable us to give a correct ver-  sion of the incident in our news columns, because distorted and pernicious reportscon-  cerning it are sure to find their way to the outside world.  :in Russia, began with consumption  of wealth,  ���������land and factories-and ended   with   conscription of labor. And the intervening stages   are  ! disfigured by violence, murder, anarchy, starvation   and ruin. , Many^ voices, angry   and  I menacing, demand "free  speech" and  admittedly freedom of discussion is of the genius of  .._ British institutions. For my part I would con-  l.'so cede  complete, freedom-of debate so long as  men confine themselves to constitutional  agitation, but those who attempt so achieve their  objects by intimidation, violence  and  revolution   I  .would   repress with 'all the authority  which the state   can   command.    And   where  democracy fails to maintain law and order just  as where  it fails to express the free judgment  of the people it is a sham and a  failure.    Let  us forget our old quarrels and prejudices and  set aside old theories which have.no practical  relation to-the new situation in Canada.-. One  hopes that the "'bloody shirt" will not become  the emblem of any party in  this  country as it  was in one oi' the American   parties   for  long-  years, after the fall of Richmond.   Let  us put  behind us any differences which the war. produced and go' on   in mutual trust and mutual  confidence.    We have too many people -who  have come to-this country with  a  disposition  to   impose  their  gievances   upon   us  and to  make us responsible for evi-Uconditions   elsewhere.    They would   punish Canada for  the  sins of other lands. They abuse Canadian freedom   and   endanger    Umadian    institutions.  Against  all   such elements we must oppose a  resolute and uncompromising Canadian spirit.  I-We want a'new liirth of devotion to Canada.  THE FAMILIAR ALPHABET  REAL'ESTATE  .

The Canada thistle yields nectar  from which the honey is. of good  color and'quality.  Willow herb,"or fireweed as it is  commonly called, grows from two to  .six feet in height. Its growth is  confined'to regions where fore'st fires  have occurred. As a rule it springs  up-and come out in blossom the year  following the.fira. It blossoms from  first of July until the latter'part of  August. The flowers are dark pink  arranged in clusters. generally  around a single stem, and as the sen  son advances the first bloom go to  seed, and as the staik extends up  ward more blossoms appear, and  buds. Blossoms and seed pods may'  be seen on the same plant. It is one  of the most valuable honey "plants  known, and gives some nector every  year.  The honey has a   fine   flavor,  golden   or   dark   amber, thick   and  has a fine flavor.  The fall dandelion has several  slender main stalks which come  from the same root. -There are several branches to each stalk, each supporting a flower which is the same  color as that of the common ones.  It yields asmalljamonntof nectar until late in the autumn.  There are many other plants in.  this province that yield nectar and,  a number of them, -no doubt, yield  it very abundantly, but as the beekeeping industry is in its iufcincy  here the possibilities of many o  these are unknown.

BUSINESS c^MAN,  have you ever thought  that advertising put? 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  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.  i  i <ffc @ s^a   *1> Ira a1^   IQl ^ pts kW $*���������   ^*& 4������  ������J a ������ f* f������������ gpi ������ $a ���������ff a n I  53   Kt K5 45!3Sa,ra <*IBS> &'d^������tf^>^Fj'&^ic������rv^-i^  THE   SUN.
