Favoring a Settlement  of Returned Men  At a meeting of the local G.W. V.  A., in their hall in this city last Friday evening, the following resolution was unanimously adopted after  the customary debate:  Whereas, There are in the immediate neighborhood of the Cities of  Grand Forks and Cascade, certain  land held by the British Columbia  Government, the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company, the Great JNorth-  ern Railway Company, and by private individuals; and,  Whereas, The said- lands consist  of fifteen thousand, acres (15,000),  more or less, the major portion of  which could be brought uoder cultivation at as little cost as any land  in the interior in this province; and,  Whereas, The said lands have  been for many years owned, held  or otherwise claimed by the parties  hereto already mentioned, without  doing anything on their part towards  bringing the land under cultivation;  and,  Whereas, The said "lands are  t raversed for the most part by two  transcontinental railroads, and are  so situated otherwise as to be easily  irrrgated, the geographical situation  furnishing a climate for growing all  kinds of fruit and products unsurpassed in the province; and,  Whereas, The said lands can easily be acquired by the government,  and at small expenditure be made  available for occupation by returned  soldiers; and,  Whereas, The Provincial Government has put itbelf on record that it  s willing to cooperate with the Do  minion Government to acquire, by  purchase or otherwise, lands such  as already described, and to assist  returned men to enter on and farm  them;  i It i9 Hereby Resolved, By the  Great War Veterans' Association of  Grand Forks, in convention met this  18th day of July, 1919, that the  Dominion and Provincial Govern  ments be asked to, and without  further delay, have this district  gazetted as a "Soldiers' Settlement  Area"; and,  It is Further Resolved, That Com  rade R. Campbell be commissioned  to make proper presentation of this  petition to the respective govern  ments and to the members whose  department it may concern by letter  and personal interview; and,  Be it Further Resolved, Should  tbe Government, after such representation has been made, fail to  order immediately its own iuvesli  gation iuto the claims of this petition, and if found advisable, to at  once proceed to carry out the work, j  they fail in their duty toward the  men whom this petition represents  and the citizens of this district in  general.  many have started out in life to earn  their own home.

We want to turn all Canadians  lenders as well as borrowers. Before  the war we were such a nation of  borrowers that forclosures were the  order of the day.

This organization  will standardize the growing, grading, packing and marketing of fruits  and vegetables, and it will prove of  more benefit to the growers of the  northwest than any other movement  in recent years.  The corporation has already pur-  chard large orchards in the Yakima  and VVenatchee districts, and will  probably bny properties in the Walla  Walla and other fruit districts.  Fifteen or twenty eastern capitalists will visit and investigate Walla  Walla in the near future with a  view of locating several big manufacturing plants there.  BRITISH APPLE  EXPORT TRADE  We notice that a great number of  British  fruit  dealers   are inquiring  after our box   apple trade.    Ottawa  sends a long list of such    inqniries.  We do not approve of spreading in  discriminateiy   over     tbe     British  wholesale   trade   at   this stagp, says  the   Fruit    Markets   Bulletin,    but  would advice concentrating at   three  or four   points, say   Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester and  London, and  by concentrating a large  volume  of  fruit   with- a   few   firms, our effort  would be recognized by the   buying  trade far quicker than by spreading.  If we ship 500 cars of applet, and  place them well, the advertisement  would do a lot to impress buyers  with the quality we produce.  Oregon formerly supplied the  fancy trade, especially in Spitz and  Newtons, but now Washington,  Montana, Idaho and British Columbia all cater to this trade. Up to this  date our volume on the British  market has been insufficient to attract mnch attention. Our many varieties has been noted by the trade,  and the individual shipments made  have been of good and bad assortment. Our position therefore is one  of being watched to see whnt chss  we can maintain. The trade suggests  in order to differentiate between box  and barrel stuff, that we place over  the No. 1 grade the words "First  Quality."

FRIDAY, JULY 25, 1919  Radicalism in Practice  Just, how the operations of can industry'are  carried on under the plan proposed by those of  radical or ultra-socialistic tendencies, is clearly  shown by an example. The instance was in  Kussia, since because the movement first obtained headway in that country, there it is  that one can view the actual working of it.  This is the story of G.'D.'L. Horsburgh. an  English expert who was on the scene.  When the first Russian revolution broke out  in February, 191G, he was connected with the  administration of a large works in Schlussel-  buro-. Eolations between the directors and the  workmen were very cordial, for the welfare of  the employees had been considered and no  efforts had been spared to ensure their comfort and happiness. At first the radical element in the works was small and consisted of  the younger and wilder men, though they had  an excellent leader, who restrained all tendencies toward excess. He was president of  the works committee formed at the first revolution.  When ;he bolsheviki came into power in  October, 1917, an executive was formed of this  works committee, which "took"' upon itself the  regulation of all matters concerning the housing of the workpeople, all contracts for fuel  Taw materials, and the settlement of all disputes arising among the men themselves or  between the men and the administration.  The former executive administration was  continued in office and was not interfered with,  and things went on pretty well for some  months. Then the regime of discipline and  order inaugurated by the president began to  strike the more rowdy element as opposed to  that "freedom" by which each man should do  as he pleased without reference to anyone  else. Then the president of the works committee was deposed, and a second committee  elected.  Mr. Horsburgh states -that he was very  much interested to observe that this radical  exponent governed by precisely the same  methods as the administration had adopted  heretofore, in fact his code of rules was even  more severe. He tried to'carry out his ideal,  namely, the transfer of the management of the  works to the workmen. In doing so he had  come to realize that there must be a head to  every concern if there is to be order and discipline, and although he tried to make out that  the head was elected by the people, yet he became thc sole voice of tho committee and an  autocrat.  The second works committee failed mainly  through its inability to control. Disturbances  and quarreling began among the rank and Hie  of the workmen. They were forced to res:gn.  and the general feeling in the works was that  no committee was necessary, But this could  not be, as it was contrary to the express orders of the bolshevik governmentand contrary  to their cherished ideal of workmen's control.  So a third committee was appointed of four  members. Things worked smoother, because  the new committee leaned almost completely  on thc administration.  Succeeding other events,  the  men   wanted  to abrogate cortain contracts, but this was op  posed'by the management on the ground that  a contract liad no meaning if it could be broken  atWill. It was explained'to the works committee under such conditions, and, unless they  were prepared to uphold contracts,, the works  would share the fate of so many others in  Russia and shutdown. They were told that a  month would see the end of a system that  would countenance such absurdities.  For making this statement the British expert was arrested on the charge of being a  counter-revolutionary, who had prophesied the  downfall of the government within a month.  Knowing the president of tlie committee on  public safety, he was given the chance to surreptitiously escape, and got out of the country  none too soon, though it cost much money and  the trip was fraught with death.  Such  a  story is interesting, since it shows  the-process by which.'-ruin   is   brought  about  through the adoption of a;system.' which, has  never been tried nor developed. Even the new  regime   in  Schlusselburg found   that the old  methods were not to be discarded. A remarkable sequel was that only three days after the  workman had effected his li'bei'ty,his prophotic  words  were  realized   that within   a   month  something would happen to   the government,  for Uratesky was murdered, Lenin was wounded and the British embassy was sacked!  f  n  nserve-  Immediate and careful attention should be given to the  first indication of eye trouble.

JEWELER AND OPTICIAN  GRAND FORKS, B.C.  -J  It is a leading characteristic of muddleheads  to blame their failures on some one else.  We are better off in all ways not to have  measles, whooping cough, scarlet fever, etc.,  in. childhood, just as we are better off not".to  have lost a linger, an eye, or even a toe.  Parents should be ever careful to protect their  children in all known ways against every sickness.  Of all present-day Sewing Machines.

The attempt to defeat the treaty on the basis  of the Irish question was voted down. Joe  Devlin, the Belfast Nationalist, proposed to  reject the treaty because of Premier Lloyd  George's Irish policy. He demanded a plebiscite in Ireland. The premier answered that  there was no prospect of any Irish settlement  until the Irish agreed among themselves.

When Telephoninj  Says a subscriber: "I called up a number  the other day, and almost laughed when  Central queried a number quite different  from that for which I asked. When I had  time to think about it, perhaps she was not  to blame, for it is probable that the number was given indistinctly."  This is a frank admission and gives rise  to the suggestion that indistinctness may  be the cause of trouble more often than  is thought.

In the High Places  Once when President Lincoln was  receiving callers at the White House  a man and his wife,, who had just  returned from Ecuador, were among  the visitors. Lincoln knew them,  and greeted them heartily.  "Did you meet our minister, Fred  Hassaurek, at Quito?" he asked.  "Yes, Mr. President," replied the  man, ''and he told me to tell you  that he wouldn't change places with  you. In Quito he is more than nine  thousand feet above the level of the  sea, and he says that he, not you,  occupies the highest office in the  gift of the American people."

BE CAREFUL.  Production in Granby  Mines Shows   a  Decline for the Year  The Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smelting and Power companj' pro  duced 25,000,000 pounds of copper  dnring the fiscal year ending June3U  This is a drop of 20,000,000 pounds  in production compared with the pre  vious fiscal period. The annual report  shows an apparent surplus of $27,000  from the 19-17 IS operations of the  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.

In Other Days  I was rather interested  some   time  ago to have the privilege   of examining the carefully kept farm   books of  a   farmer   of   this   county covering a  period of twenty years, from 1879   to  1899, and found that his average   income for 20 years was $706 per  year.  This did not include the meat,   milk,  potatoes and seed grain used   by him,  but the actual cash    returns  for products sold.  In 1897 fat cattle   weighing 960 pounds sold at 83.60 per cwt,  1 100 pound steers at S4.G0 per cwt.,  wheat S2c, wood $2.90 per cord, oats  J 19c,   hogs   $4.75,   potatoes   25c  per  | bag.  j Perhaps this had something to do  I with tho young people leaving the  : farm. ��������� President Smith of Wateil  | County Board of Agriculture,  oo  Save Vorctil Revenue to Develop B.C  Pi.
