C, FRIDAY, JULY 27, 1917  $1.00 PER YEAR  v  "**  MEETING OF TH  CITY  Chairman of flfater and Light  Committee Says Water  Is Being Wasted  Mayor Acres and Aid. McArdle,  McCallum, Schnitter and Webster  were present at the regular meeting  of the city, council on Monday  evening.  Poundmaster Woodhend addressed the council, stating that he did  not consider the 50 cents per day allowed by the pound bylaw a sufficient amount on which to feed impounded animals. No action was  taken by the council.  . W. K. C. Manly asked, on behalf  of the Grand Forks Canning association, for a grant to cover the asso  ciationV taxes on its property. As  the property-would be affected by  this year's tax sale, the council did  not take any action in the matter,  It was apparent, however, that the  members present did not favor  granting the request, in view of the  fact that the property of many  worthy but needy citizens would  have to be put up at tax''sale... this  year.  City -Engineer Reid reported that  he had made temporary repairs to  tbe reservoir, and the leakage * had  been almost entirely overcome, but  there was considerable seapage from  the 12-inch pipe leading to the  reservoir, and he suggested that a  man be emplpyed for a day or two  to prospect for the break. On motion of Aid. McCallum and McArdle, Mr. Reid was authorized to  endeavor to find the break in the  pipe and to repair it at as small an  expense-as possible.  John Simpson thought that there  were notsufficient hotel accommo  dations in the West end for the railway p< ople, aud he would like to  see the Pacific reopened. The mayor  stated that the matter had already  been dealt with by the license commissioners.  Mayor Acres stated that a convention of automobile clubs was  shortly to be held at Princeton, and  he thought it would be a graceful act  to send the members an invitation  to visit this city before they returned to the coast.  The mayor stated that the third  anniversary  of the commencement  of the war would occur on Saturday,  August 4, aud he fuvored  a  proper!  observance of the  occasion   by   thc  citizens.    On motion of Aid. Web-j  ster and McCallum, he was author-1  ized   to   secure a hall and to make I  arrangements' for a meeting similar  to that held last year. !  Tne chairman oi the finance com- \  mittee reported in favor of giving;  the insurance on the contents of the  city hall to F. R. S Barlee, as his  figures i were lower than those ol  other insurance men. The report  was adopted.  Tenders forredeeking the Fourth ,  street bridge were  received  as   fol-;  lows:  R. J. Logan,   I4������ cents  per  lineal foot;   John  Hall  and  E. C.  Peckham, 19 cents; Wm. Bonthron,  10 cents.    On   motion,   tbe  work  was awarded to the lowest tenderer.  The chairman of the water and  light committee reported that an  enormous amount of - water had  been used lately, and he' was convinced that a large portion of it was  being wasted. He did riot like to  resort to the extreme measure of  employing a special policeman to  enforce the' sprinkling regulations,  but in his opinion' some step of that  nature would soon have to be taken.  After discussion, it was decided to  postpone action for a short time.  The chairman of the parks and  cemetery committee.- urged the  draining of McCallum's stough more  effectively than it is at present. On  motion of Aid. Schnitter and Mc-  Calium, the chairman of the health  and relief committee was instructed  to ascertain the cost and, if he  deemed it advisable, to have the  work done.  The board of works was authorized to close the Fourth street  bridge while it is being replanked.  The city clerk reported that small  reductions in the assessment of B.  Lexuime's lots' had been made by  the county court, but that the assessment on the.improvements had  beec confirmed.  The tax collector was authorized  to accept installments as payment  for taxes.  Aid. McArdle was granted leave  to introduce the mayor's remuneration bylaw. It provides for a remuneration of. S.oOO to the mayor.  It was advanced the third reading  stage.  Aid. McArdle was granted leave  to introduce the aldermen's indemnity bylaw. The bylaw provides  for an indemnity of $175, with a  reduction of ������7 for each non attendance at meetings after an absence  from two meetings. It was ad  vanced to the third reading stage.

The Grand Forhs high  school made a very good record,  nineteen out of a clas of twenty five  passing.

About ������10,000,000 will be used  to organize American Red Cross  hospitals and ambulances on the  Italian front. This sum will bejtakei)  from a fund of S 100,000,000 which  -American headquarters at Paris  have at tbeir disposal for Europe.  . Hon'. Mr. Pattullo, minister of  landsin the Brewster government,  and Mr. Young, controller of water,  arrived in the city at 8 o'clock"' on  Wednesday evening from Phoenix  in J. E. W. Thompson's car. Only  a few hours' advance notice of their  coming had been received here, but  the ranchers were hastily notified  and an informal meeting was arranged' for in the board of trade  rooms tbat evening to discuss with  thc. minister the, irrigation problem,  which is at present a vital issue in  ,this valley. Considering the short  notice of the meeting, the attendance was gratifying.  '������������������'<��������� E. C.'Henniger, president of the  local Liberal association, who acted  as chairman,' in introducing the  minister to the audience, briefly  outlined the objects of the meeting.  Mr. Pattullo said he and Mr.  Young had visited the valley to  study the.question.of irrigation -and  to obtain the views of the residents  rather than to make speeches. It  was the intention of the government, however, to do'everything it  could to assist the agricultural industry, as it fully realized that the  permanent prosperity of the prov-  vince depended more on the   tillage  of the soil than on any other indus-  i  try.  J. T Lawrence stated that an irrigation system, that would irrigate  all the land of the valley was urgently needed. The proposition was  too big for the farmers to finance it,  and they appealed to government to  investigate the subject and to suggest a workable scheme. In his  opinion, a feasible method of irrigating the valley, would be to start  a*  ditch   seventeen   miles    up the  tional law. Mr. Pattullo replied  that a system is in operation in  Saskatchewan.  Robert Mann endorsed. Mr. Lawrence's plan, as it would irrigate all  the bench lands.  Neil McCallum said irrigation  overshadowed every other question  in the valley. With water the valley, would be the garden spot of  the province; without water, the  full fruits of the farmer's labors  were uncertain in dry seasons.  H. C. Kerman said irrigation was  badly needed, and he felt sure some  good would result from the visit of  the minister and Mr. Young.  C. C. Heaven hoped for good results from Mr. Pattullo's and Mr.  Young's visit, and trusted they  would find ;time to visit all parts of  the valley before they left the city.  - John Donaldson spoke along similar liaes, and congratulated the. people of the district upon having a  live representative at Victoria in J.  E. W. Thompson.  Mr. Pattullo followed these speakers,   and   spoke   at    considerable  length.   It was quite apparent from  his   speech  that the minister was  friendly toward an adequate   irrigation system   for the valley, as on  several occasions he emphasized the  fact   that the' basis of   the^perma-  nency of any community was agriculture.    Personally he viewed  the  scheme outlined  by   the   speakers  with  favor, but   he  could   promise  nothing on the part  of  the government,  as  there  was vet ho law.on  the statute books   authorizing- governmental  aid  irrigation    projects.  He  thought  it; was quite probable  that such a law would be enacted at  the next session of the   legislature.  He himself would support it. When  the law was passed, the government  ���������would Jtake immediate action.    He  made   it  clear  that   any irrigation  project the government might   decide to aid would have to  be  paid  for in the end by the ranchejs.  The  minister   dwelt-at length   on  the  financial   status jof   the   province,  which he compared to the condition  of a man the day after he had   been  on   a big spree.    Capitalists   and  financiers everywhere were  discouraging the floating of any more loans  by the province,   and  in   order   to  meet current expenses the govern-  GUY ID  Net Earnings for Last Fiscal  Tear Approximately,  $5,500,000  North Fork. Enough water could  thus be obtained to irrigate 30,000[ment had been forced to put on  acres, aud water could be put on the ^hat he termed the iniquitous sur-  bench lands as well as the lowlands.   tax-.   There was no other means  of  escape. To have kept on borrowing would have brought the province to bankruptcy. He prodicted  tbat before the war ended the federal government would control the  borrowing of money by the provinces and municipalities. In closing, the speaker reminded the  audieuce that tbe majority of tbe  press of the province were botile to  the government, and a  great   many  The lower part of the valley couid  be irrigated from Smelter lake. If  this scheme was adopted, he thought  there might be a chance of supplying the city with water, from which  source a substantial annual revenue  might be derived.  Mr. Young.replying to a question,  said an indebtedness against land  of $30 per acre for irrigation purposes was not an unreasonably  amount. By the repayment of S3  per acre per year the principal and  interest would be liquidated in  about twenty years. Before the war  broke out the government of the  day had made plans to come into  tbe valley and take stock with a  view of assisting the farmers to install an irrigation system, but of  course the war had upset tbe   plans.  John Simpson suggested damming the main river at Danville  and bring tbe water across the line.  It would be cheaper, he said, than  to bring it from the North Fork.  He asked to minister if such a system   would   conflict with  interna-  The Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smelting <k Power company made  net earnings of approximately $5,^-  500,000 in its fiscal year ended June  30, according to preliminary estimates, says a Boston report. This  is compared with $4,100,000 in the  preceding fiscal period. The earnings of the. last year are equal" to  about 836 a share, against $25 in  the 1915-16 year. Dividends paid  during last year amounted to $9 a  share,' necessitating 'the disbursement of ������1,349,S64, while bond interest encrooched further on the  surplus of the year. ' -  Copper production showed but  little change from the previous year,  a slight falling off being indicated  in the smelter returns for the twelve  months just ended, the total being  41,312,884 pounds of copper against  42,498,0S3 pounds in the preceding  year. Last February the company  encountered hard sleddiug on account of tbe extreme cold weather,  particularly at Anyox, .which cut  production materially. The Grand  Forks plant was forced to closedown  early in April in consequence of a  fuel shortage, although the situation  has since cleared up.  Granby has been   spending  large  amounts of money during  tbe  last  few   years   in   building up its new  plant at Anyox to  the point  where  it can be regarded as one of the best  equipped   and   most   economically  operated of any of the western copper plants.    The  management  has  plans   for more of   these improvements and additions to be installed  during   the  fiscal  year just started  which will call for further large  expenditures.    In   the  meantime the  capital stock has been placed  on   a  810 annual dividend basis,   sinking  fund requirements fully and   easily  met and bonds outstanding reduced  in   aniouut   and   surplus   account  strengthened substantially.  It is trying desparately hard to  rain. So far the atmosphere has  been refreshed to a considerable degree, and garden truck and vegetables have benefited slightly. If it  ehould decide to rain some more,  Jt might prove to be the salvation  of the fruit and potato crops, although it is rather late to do the  grain much good.  matters were misrepresented and  magnified.

There  should be no excuse for exposing our internal  affairs to our enemies.  .At the irrigation meeting the other evening none of those in the audience believed in  a "dry" policy. If the overseas soldiers' vote  was as unanimously "wet," no change need be  expected in our liquor license regulations.  An editor in the States grumbles  because  'an advance announcement was  not  made  of  " the sailing of the United States  regulars  for  France.    If the  man is not in the employ of  the kaiser, he should be confined   in a home  for feeble-minded people.  Conditions in Russia are now closely allied  to the reign of terror in Paris during the  French revolution. For some time jmsfc the  country has been of but little assistance to tho  allies, but.the rule of blood and iron inaugurated by Premier Kerensky may bring the  army and the people to their senses. When  tbat occurs, which we hope will be soon,  Russia will again become a factor in the war  for liberty, and the strain on the western front  will be greatly relieved. /  The new Russia will retain the old Hag,  which has three horizontal stripes���������white,  blue and red. A few years ago the imperial  emblem, a black eagle on a yellow field, was  placed in the upper left-hand corner of the  flag, but the provisional government has ordered that it be removed.  The world war has taken so many producers  from   the ��������� sources  of food   supply that   the  world's  consumption  of food is greater than  the amount available, and, consequently, food  reserves are being rapidly depleted.    Millions  of men are actively engaged in warfare and in  the supply of munitions and equipment. They  are fighting our battles and we  must provide  their food.    Canada will produce all the food  we can  consume, but  Canadians  have never  been   known  as  a selfish race.    Our allies,  therefore, are depending upon us for help and  our people will unquestionably respond  with  generous  hand.    The  time   for  planting for  1917 is past, but the time for harvest is yet to  come. "There is very often much waste at this  time, due, in 'many instances, to thc lack of a  demand at market prices.    Fruit, especially,  supplies  much  of this waste, and yet, while  this waste is taking place, many  families are  compelled to go without it for lack of means to  pay the market prices.    Local  organizations  could easily arrange  to  bring  the consumers  in touch with this surplus fruit that it  might  not be  wasted. " The  use of sucli "perishable  food, which would otherwise be wasted,   will  held .to  increase  the  supply  of   exportable  food.    There is also much waste in thc kitchen and dining rooms of Canadian homes.   The  waste in bread alone is  a considerable item.-  Bread  has  been looked  upon, as one of the  cheaper staple foods and little care has . been  taken to prevent its waste by drying up, the  discarding of crusts,  etc.    A little  thought  will show what this waste amounts  to  when  the cumulative result  throughout  Canada is  considered.    Sir Robert Borden has said that  Canada.is in the war "to the last man and the  last dollar." Canada is also in the war to  the  last   pound   of  food.    Canadians   are  their  brothers'  keepers,  and. will feed them, cost  what it may.    It is  necessary, therefore, that  we practise economy of the food supply.   It  is better to deny ourselves from choice  than  from necssity. There is no denying that there  will be a food shortage, and the present is the  time  to  put  into  practice  thrift  and   rigid  economy in the use of food.  ^  's-  Now/tdays is a handsome piece of Cut Glass.

Hens are expert shell  makers.  Like the Liberty Loan, the Red Cross war  fund was heavily oversubscribed; but nevertheless, if our response to the appeal had been  as generous in proportion to our population  as the response of Canada was to the corresponding cry for help, we should have given  $180,000,000 instead of the notably smaller  sum that we did give.���������Youth's Companion.  The people of this country should not consider that 1917 will be the only year that  rigid economies must be practised. jThere is  no knowing at this date When the war will  end, and even after it has ended there will be  urgent need for Canada's surplus of food for  many months while Europe is being regenerated. .

IMPERIALS PARLORS  BRIDGE STREET  WE SELL  It must be gratifying to our citizens to learn  that is there considerable mining development  now being carried on in the North Fork country without the attendant "boom." A mining  boom is as bad as a real estate boom. Both  increase prices beyond the intrinsic value of  properties, and when the collapse comes the  country is left as depleted financially as a forest is of trees -after a forest fire. And the  worst feature of booms is, that it is usually  the poor man, who can not afford to lose his  hard-earned money, who is fleeced. Capitalists  and financiers are too wise to be caught in the  maelstrom of fictitious values. Hence it is  obvious that the promoter of a boom is an  enemy of a community, while the man who,  by his own industry, labors to improve his  property, and endeavors to dispose of it at its  real value, is the main factor in giving permanency to any mining camp or farming district. For this reason the men who are now  developing their properties in Franklin camp  arc doing more for  the district  than a thou-  A Slight Reservation  Miranda was an incurable optimist and the embodiment of kindliness.

The government of the United  Stales, considering the obstacles it  has. to overcome, is making marvellous headway in preparing an army  for the European battlefields. One  army division, a force of marinep,  and nine regiments have been ordered to the front, and 12,000 are  now in France; 10,000 doctors have  been ordered to France and England; 40,000 men are being trained  as officers, 3500 warplanes are being  built, and 6000 aviators trained.  Within three months the United  States will have a big army in  France, and that they will make  themselves felt against the Hun is  beyond a shadow of a doubt.���������  Ladysmith Chronicle;  The Sun read.is  read  by  everybody in the Kettle valley.

THAMES  PEOPLE OF CANADA  Ottawa, July 22.���������His majesty  tbe king has sent the following message through the Canadian government to the people of Canada:  "I learn with deep gratification of  the effective steps being taken in the  Dominion of Canada toward providing those increased supplies of food  which are adequately essential to  the defeat of the enemy devices and  to a speedy and successful termination of the war. I have no doubt  that theself sacrifice displayed on  the battlefields of France by my  heroic Canadian troops will find its  counterpart in the efforts of those  who at home in the Dominion are  devoting themselves to this work.  All those thus loyally engaged contribute in an important measure  toward securing victory.  "George, R.I."  j Sure! High Heels  j   Cause Corns But   \  !      Who Cares Now ?
