 Ketvle Valley  Orchardist  THIRTEENTH, YEAR-No. 39  GRAND FORKS,  B. C, FRIDAY, JULY 24, 1914  $1.00 PER YEAR  - -It is always pleasant to read words  of .praise of the town^and.district'  in which we live. Telephone Talk  for July, in a profusely-illustrated  article, gives the following' description of Grand Forks and tbe Kettle  valley:  Nothing   in the world looks more  like the pyramids of Egypt at a dis  "tance^than the large cones of .granulated   slag   that attract attention to  "  the , big   Granby   smelter at Grand,  Forks, as they aresilhuetted against  the   sky.    That   they   are there is  proof that- much ore has been  taken  trom the mountains   and   converted  into red cooper   matte, an   industry  of which the city is proud.    Mining  brings wealth  to Grand   Forks, but  future prosperity has  another   base  0 equally   substantial.    Thousands of  arable acres in one  area  are   tojj be  found in tbat southeastern section of  tbe province, and cultivated ranches  are features  of  the   scenerv   there  abouts.  Hundred-acre orchards   are  ���������    not unknown and  prosperous farms  indicate the fulfilment of. the hope of  those who have taken up land there.  To   make   the   fruit   crop of the  Grand   Forks   district  a  realizable  asset,-not-onlyvis there a good market   in   the   mining towns  of   the  Boundary and  Kjotenay   districts,  but transportation facilities  are  excellent, and the markets of the middle west are easily available.    Rail  way facilities are exceptional, and a  network of roads  radiate  from   the  city.    The Canadian Pacific railway  system   extends   to   that portion of  the   province;   tbe   Great N'orthern  route   is   via   Grand  Forks  to the  western part of the   Boundary   and  the Similkameen;   a line extends up  the Kettle river; the  Kettle   Valley  line   runs   west,   and is being completed to the coast.    Such  lines of  communication give invaluable ship  ping   facilities   to  the  district, the  fruit and farm  products   of   which  are   rapidly  increasiug in amount.  Grand Forks has been long separated  from the coast, but with   the Kettle  Valley with a part of the   Canadian  Pacific railway system through from  tbe   prairies, there will be  a   more  compact   British   Columbia.     The  importance   of   this new avenue of  commerce can not be too highly estimated, since it passes through districts in which there is  considerable  settlement   already,   and   with  the  worth of thc   land   proved   railway  facilities will encourage   the   advent  of more producing settlers. Not only  will the districts enroute be benefited  but the trade that will develop  will  find   its   way   to  such distributing  centres as Grand Forks.' Commercial  expansion is a probability of the immediate future.  The Granby is the largest   copper  ing proposition at Observatory Inlet  on tbe northern coast. This iR only  one instance of what is being done  to exploit the mineral resources of  the province, the development of  which is its chief industry. The  success of the present holds out  promise of- continued activity far  into'the future/; , -  - "JT;irhber is another'of'the'-assets of  the Grand, Forks district. Sawmills  have been operated there for many  years', and - .the supply of raw material is sufficient to guarantee operation for many years to come.  Twenty million feet of logs are floated .down the Kettle river annually  to be made into lumber, which is'  distributedthroughout the district  and among prairie towns  These   three   principal   resource.-  attracted settlers to the Grand Forks  district,   and   twenty   years   ago- a  name was given the   new city.    Today it is a thriving centre, well   laid  out, with substantial business blocks,  handsome residences and  imposing  public buildings.    The.city owns its  ow.n electric power plant,which supplies a continuous light   and   power  service.'  It owns its own waterworks  system, .with an available  source of  supply sufficient for the needs   of  a  much larger population.   A concrete  reservoir, with a 500,000-gallon   capacity, was completed last summer.  There are   two   chartered  banks, a  trust   company, two   weekly  newspapers, a hospital, in short all those  institutions which"follow tBe 'deveU  opment of a growing city.   The new  provincial courthouse was erected at  a cost of $60,000, and a new federal  building has also been recently completed to meet tbe rapidly increasing  requirements.    The   local  adminis  tration has been marked by an   aggressiveness  and   efficiency    which  has brought credit on both the   city  council   and   the   board   of trade.  That the citizens take such  a   keen  interest in civic and   public  institutions indicates the progressive spirit  that has made Grand Forks the well  established city that.it is.  Scenic charm is an attractive feat  ure of the district. Climatic advantages are not surpassed anywhere in  the province. Grand Forks is particularly fortunate in having within  such easy reach Christina lake, a  beautiful body of water, twelve  miles distant. Good roads enable  tbe motorist to make the journey in  short time, while the railway run is  convenient, the route of the Cana  dian Pacific railway being along the  shore. Among the larger cities of  the Boundary and Kootenay, Grand  Forks is among the very few that  have delightful water resorts, which  THE  BOARD OF TRAD  There was not a gre.at dea] of  business transacted at thc meeting  of the board of trade on Wednesday  evening. President DeCew occupied  the chair.  .A letter  was   read   from   W.   P.  'Kenney, of the Great Northern   railway.    Mr. Kenney stated "that   the  reports concerning the quality of the  ore at Gloucester would    not permit  his   company   to  make any further  investigations of the eamp     In' view  of the fact that the report of the ex  pert recently sent by the government,  to   examine   the   eamp has not yet  been made public, the hoard   was of  the opinion  that  Mr.   Kenney   had  been misinformed.    The letter   was  referred to the industrial committee.  Letters were read from Hon. Martin Burrell, minister  of agriculture,  and W. P. Anderson, of the agricultural department, Ottawa,   in   reference to the board's request for black  bass fingerlings with which to   stock  Christina     lake. -   Both   gentlemen  gave a   final   refusal to the request,  claiming that black bass are indigenous to the waters of that lake.  President   DeCew   reported   that  the city council had   agreed to bear  850-of the ex-penae-for-the-entertainment of the Canadian Pacific railway  officials.  A petition circulated among the  resident of tbe North Fork country,  above Lynch Creek, by Thomas  Funkley, asking the post office de-  pratment to establish post offices at  Lynch Creek and Gloucester, was endorsed by the board. The petition  contained between eighty and ninety  names.  The attention of the board was  directed to the letter recently published from the provincial department of mines, from which it was  inferred that the government made  quanitative assays for prosrjectors  free of charge. One prospector in  this city recently received conclusive  evidence to the contrary from Victoria  in the shape of a $3 bill. The secretary was instructed to write tbe  minister of mines for a clearer interpretation of the law on  this subject.  OF IHE CUT RIFLEMEN GET  y  L'O^ilvie, of the Gerrard, B.. C,  fish hatchery, arrived in the city on  Tuesday with 6000 salmon trout fry.  The fish were placed in the North  Fork, at the .Humming Bird bridge,  the same day by Mr. Ogilvie and Leo  Mader.  The Gra.nd Forks corps of school  cadets left on Monday for- Kaslo,where  they will spend the week under canvas. The boys, twenty seven in number, made a good appearance as they  marched to the depot, dressed in their  new uniforms and carrying their rifles.  I '      The handsome new bandstand recently erected opposite John Donaldson's store, in the.West end was formally opened by the Grand Forks band  last Friday evening. ; A varied and  lengthy program was rendered, much  to the enjoyment of the large gather  ing of citizens. Free-refreshments  were served by Messrs. Peterson and  Dinsmore.  F. B. McKeehan, the popular chief  immigration inspector stationed at  Marcus, has been removed from office  by the Democratic administration.  Mr. McKeeban formerly lived in this  city.

MISSING MAN  F  The city electrician this week is installing fifty new street lights in sub  stitution for some that have outgrown  their   usefulness. ,. The new lights are  said to give a much better  tion than the old ones for  amount of cost.  illumina  the same  H. A. Sheads and Rev. Hayman  returned on Saturday from a week's  fishing outing on Kootenay river. As  an evidence of their luck,they brought  back two baskets of fish.  Thomas  A.    Mclntyre,   who disappeared last week withont   leaving  any   trace as  to his whereabout or  what   had   happened   to .him, was  from early in    the week.    On   Monday his wife   received   a   telegram",  dated at Tacoma. Wash., from  him,  saying that he was well and  that be  would     write   tbe   following   day.  A few days   later   a   letter   arrived  from   him,   but   the  contents have  not   been   divulged.    Dispondency  caused by financial reverses is given  as the reason   for his disappearance.  On Sunday last  the  members  of  the Knights of Pythias lodge   made  a thorough search of the Kettle river  in the   hope   of  discovering   some  trace of the missing man.  Bell-Baker  G.   A.

It s  on   the   Komagata   Maru in   Vancouver harbor for a month  past, on  Monday last gave every  evidence of  evolving into a tragedy.    The  Hindus on board had taken   possession  of the ship, refused to allow it to be  towed to sea, and placed themselves  in open revolt against the  land   authorities.    After   a   day of rioting,  the   federal   government  hurriedly  ordered   the  Rainbow,   then at anchor in Esquimalt harbor,   to Vancouver   to   assist   thc  immigration  officials in enforcing  the decree   of  the court.   The arrival of the cruiser  in     Vancouver    harbor     quickly  brought the passengers on the Kom  agata   Maru   to their senses.    They,  are now on their way back to India.  It is a bitter irony on Premier  Borden's   naval   policy that he should  have  been  compelled  to call upon  Sir Wilfrid Laurier's   nucleus  of   a  Canadian   navy  to help tbe government out of a critical situation.  Tbe  Rainbow.jeered at by every Tory in  the   land,   ordered   to   Esquimalt,  placed out of commission and at "one  time ordered dismantled, saves  the  government in time of peril!    Can  anything be more humiliating  than  Mr. Borden's failure to increase the  Meet which had its birth  under  tbe  late Liberal administration?  It is stated that the unpleasant  visit of the Komagata Maru to Vancouver could have been averted if  steps had been taken to keep tbe  vessel at Hongknng.

The Canadians' themselves are all settlers from foreign lands or descendants  of such. They are intruders upon the  native possessors of the country and  hold their position only because of the  protection of the British empire. We  had fondly hoped that, knowing all  this, they would recognize the conse  quent obligation placed upon thena,  but we have been disappointed. We  have frequently urged in the past and  repeat today that it is the duty of the  Indian government to form and carry  a great scheme of Indian colonization  within the British empire, but it is  impossible, as things stand at present,  for the class of Indians most in need  of new homes, unaided, to colonize  successfully."  It will require a greater power than  the London Statist to convince the  people who have made this country  that   they   are  '"intruders," and that  A, D.

Instead of paying  their honest bills, the clerks and artisans are" in vesting their earnings in  worthless oil stock. So general has  this practice become, according to this  gentleman, that many merchants on  the' outskirts of the city have been  forced to close theirdoors on account  of bad collections.  .

The government papers are now  printing the story that trains will be  running through to the coast over the  Kettle .Valley line by Christmas. If  the editors of these papers do not know  any better than to print such a story  for a fact, they are too credulous for  the newspaper business; and if they  print it knowing it to be a falsehood,  their conduct dishonors the profes  sion.

In April and May,  1914, the immigration was 68,000. "In  percentage the decrease was 53, ac  cording to official figures given out  by the Ottawa government. Since  Borden rule has brought such a de  pression and widespread unomploy-  ment in Canada, it is fortunate, per-"  haps, that this large falling off has  taken place, but the very fact that it  has come shows how Canada's former  march of marvellous progress has been  checked under the administration of  the present government. Under the  Laurier^rule there was a constant , in  crease in immigration and abundance  of work at good wages ,for all who  would come to Canada.���������Victoria  Times!

eminent cable across Kootenay lake
from Balfour to Pilot bay, means of
communication will be afforded with
the-whole of East Kootenay east of-
Kootenay lake. This widening of the
telephone field will mean much", to
the Grand Forks district, where
areas devoted to fruit raising are increasing in extent,and where mixed
farming is producing a wider range
of products. It will mean that the
markets of the whole eastern part of
the province will be always within
close touch
Extension of the Kettle Valley
railway to thc coast will doubtless be
followed by the establishment of
long distance telephone facilities. It
has been the ambition of the British
Columbia Telepho'ne company to.
connect its outlying exchanges and
in. so doing to make a thoroughly
united British Columbia. Without
means of intercommunication, particularly the telephone, a certain
amount of ��� isolation ��� exists. This
was removed on the coast by the
laying of the additional submarine
cable across the gulf at a cost of
$250,000, which connected up the
whole of Vancouver island and the
lower mainland. ��� Whenever it is
possible extension will be made of
the toll lines to the interior, and
when that is done Grand Forks and
other cities in the mining section of
southeastern British Columbia will
then participate more bountifully
in the advantages which accrue by
being in a province so richly endowed as this.
,. That growth in Grand Forks has
been steady is indicated by the increase in the number of telephones.
In 1912 the growth was 16 7 per
cent and in 1913 it was 16.2, showing that no untoward conditions existed in tbat part of the province.
Today there are 259 telephone users
in Grand Forks, and the increase for
1914 promises to be as great as in
the two years immediately past.
When tbe city possesses more ad-
vantages in the way of greater facilities of transportation and communication it is safe to assume tb;it its
growth will continue, blessed as it-is
