Mayor Acres and Aid. Harkness,  McArdle,' McCallum, McCabe, McDonald and Schnitter were present  at the regular meeting of the city  council on Monday evening  A letter from Government Agent  Almond, in reference to the application of George Moreau for admission to the Old Men's home at Kara-  loops, was read and ordered filed.  On motion of Aid. McDonald and  McCallum, the clerk was instructed  to take the case up with the provincial secretary.  A letter from H. E. Young was  ordered filed.  A communication from the city  clerk's oflice, London, Ont., requested the council to adopt a resolution  urging the Dominion government to  protect its overseas soldiers by  adopting and putting into force a  plan of insurance similar to that  now being practiced in the United  States. On motion of Aid. McCallum, the clerk was instructed to forward, a resolutiou-to-the government  along the lines -suggested by the  London council.  ���������A letter from Secretary Henniger,  of the Tennis club, asked for defin-  . ite hours for sprinkling the tennis  c-mrt. As the court is uot sprinkled  more than two or three times'a  week, the ciub was given considerable latitude in this respect.  A letter from the fuel controlle  respecting fuel matters generally  was ordeied filed.  A letter from the South Vancouver city C( ut.cil i fl'ertd m run.her of  articles for sale.    Ordered filed.  The chairman of the finance com  mittee recomm jnded that the past  month's accounts be paid, and that  the light in the city office be increased by putting another window  on the east side,- and that the floor  and ou the porch be repaired. These  repairs, he thought, could be made  at a cost of about S15.   Accepted.  The chairman of the board of  works reported that the work of repairing the sidewalks had been completed. He recommended that the  wooden walk on Columbia avenue  near W. " H. Dinsoj ore's residence  be condemned and removed. There  was also a short piece of sidewalk on  Main street mar the Methodist  church that should be eondeu n d  and taken out. T^e report- was  adoptel.  The chairman of the water and  light committee reported that the  committee had fixed the hours for  sprinkling tbe school grounds from  6 till 9 The council approved this  arrangement.    The   chairman  com-  hira once, and then if the offence  was repeated to prosecute him.  The council then resumed consideration of Aid. McCallum's  weights and mesures bylaw. The  bylaw passed through tbe committee process, and under a suspension  of the rules was read for the .third  reading. All of the aldermen expressed themselver as being heartily  in favor of the bylaw.  Aid. McCabe thought this would  be an opportune time for tbe city to  purchase its coal supply for next  winter, and on motion the clerk was  instructed to advertise for tenders  at once.  Aid. McCallum gave notice that  at the next meeting he would ask  leave to introduce a rate and tax  bylaw, and .also a rebate of taxes  bylaw.  DISTRIBUTING  POINT FOR SINGERS  H. Weber, representative for the  Singer Sewing Machine company  in the Boundary-Kootenay district,  states that his company has decided  to make Grand Forks the distributing center for these popular machines for the Boundary country  and a large terrftory west of this  point. Heretofore the distribut-  i lg point for this district has been  Nelson. The company is now en  deavoring to secure a suitable build  ing in this city ior office acd storage  purposes, and the change will become effective July 1. The change  will be quite an acquisition to Grand  Forks, as the company contemplates  to eventually cover a vast- territory  from the headquarters here. The  agent will spend most of his time  here, aud the machines will be  shipped to this city in   carload lots.  Local  Men Interested in  Properties on Flagstafi!  Mountain  It is reported that the recently  discovered chromite deposits near  Cascade have caused considerable  excitement among mining men in  this "district. It is expected that  greater activity will start shortly  when chromite will be mined, -owing to the increased dem.md for it  as a war manufacturing product. It  is a low grade: proposition carrying  from 15 to GO per cent chrome.  Angus Cameron and Ralph Wol-  verton were among the first to stake  claims in that vicinity, which is on  the western slope.of Flagstaff moun  tain, about two miles east of Cascade and a half mile north of the international boundary line.  Others who have staked claims iu  the locality or are interested are W.  S. Phillips, C. Johnson, the Stewart-  Calvert company, Murt Carroll, Leo  Mader and C. A. Mix.  Last fall an engineer of the Stewart-Calvert company bonded claims  of Mr. Cameron, who is said to have  realized SoOOO. When the news  leaked out tbe prospectors got busy  and are'still active in the neighborhood. The same firm also staked  two claims aud have been carrying  on development work.  Experts   from   several   American  companies have been anxious to ob  tain properties, and it is stated, that  the propositions offered  were   on  a  royalty basis for tonnage   extracted.  LAUD AMERICA'S  LOYALTY TO RUSSIA  Americans Must Register  E. A. Wakefield, American consul at Fernie, states that all Americans should register on June 22 in  compliance with the regulations of  the Canada registration board for  man and woman power on that  day.  Registration as an American citizen, American military registration,  Americau certificate of military ex  emption or   birth   certificate   is not  sufficient.    All residents of Cauada,  temporary or otherwise,and of whatever  nationality, who  are  over 16  years of age must  register  on   that  date.    This registration is  more  in  the nature of an industrial   measure  and   should   not be  confused with  the military registration. Mr. Wakefield points out the two are entirely  separate and  distinct.    The consul  also impresses upon  all Americans  in the consular district,who have not  already done so, the  advisability of  registering as American   citizens   at  the consulate at once.    Registration  application forms may   be  obtained  at any Ameiican consulate,   but  in  making rtquests for forms it should ' not."  be   stated   whether  native   born or  naturalized citizen, A Surprise   :  The embargo placed on fresh fruits  Essential Industries        coming from the United   States is a  The  American  government   will /great surprise to  British   Columbia  The London press unanimously  approves ol President Wilson's address to American journalists, the  News declaring: "Wilson reveals  himself the architect of the world's  future. The United States'loyally  toward Russia is one of the war's  redeeming features. When history  is written President Wilson will  shine like a beacon light in the  darkness."  President Wilson advocates pan-  Americanism as a pact for Americans for self protection purpose.  This  developed  on  Tuesday    with  British Columbia can grow all the  fruit that the prairies can consume  and would make an effort to do so  if this market depended on them  and eastern Canadian supplies. However, there is a time wheu those  who can afford luxuries can get  fruits ahead of our season from  southern points. There is no competition in this stuff and seldom do  we hear any complaint about the  high price it sells for. It has a bad  effect on British Columbia fruits  when they do come in, as the taste  of many of tbe consumers is already  satisfied. It would be a good thing  for everybody (but the trade) if this  practice of early fruit shipments  from the south were discontinued  while tbe balance of trade is against  us.  SOME OF BILL'S .  CAMOUFLAGE  With the British Forces, June 12.  ���������The spirit of the German army  was never keener than it is today.  It would be playing Germany's  game to report otherwise. Events on  the Somme, the Lys and the Aisne  have had their effect. Also, professional lecturers and special officers  are circulating among the troops en  couraging them with moral stimulants. These insist that tbe war is  almost over and declare that Germany is invincible, fighting in self-  defence. They say that more Americans are sunk at sea than have arrived in France, and that the Americans can not arrive in force before  Germany whips the al ies; also that  those arriving are unable to stand  fire and are generally untrained and  inefficient German prisoners gen  erally are insolent, arrogant and  sneering, apparently owning the  earth. They are convinced that  Germany will win this year, with  the allies feeding out of the kaiser's  hand. They dream of annexing  Chicago.  Such is the army that Hindenburg  is nursing prior to his fourth great  offensive.  Su^ar for Preserving  In reply to an inquiry tbe following message, which is self-expiana-  tory, has been received from the  Canada food board:  "There is nothing in our regulations to prevent home preserving;  we wish to encourage this as much  as possible. We sent out statements  last night to the .press dealing with  the sugar situation. As long as the  public do not hoard sugar but use  it   sensibly, and   comply with  our  President  Poincare   Says  Equilibrium Will Be  Restored  Paris, June 13.���������On the anniversary of the arrival of American  troops in France, President Poincare  has cabled the following message to  President Wilson:  ,'The allies, owing to the Russian  capitulation, are living through the  most difficult hours of the war, but  the rapid formation of new American units and the uninterrupted increase in overseas transportation are  leading us with certainty toward  the day when the equilibrium will  be restored."  America's Wheat Crop  Washington, June 12.���������The agricultural department estimates show  there will be a wheat crop in 1916  31,000,000 bushels, which is substantially over the average and 30  per cent larger than last year's  crop.   ���������  News of the City  The assize court in Greenwood  has been postponed to the 24th  inst. There are two criminal cases  and one civil case on the docket.  The log drive on the main Kettle  river for the Forest mill at Cascade  passed the city today.  ���������W.. X.

FRIDAY, JUNE .14, 1.918  If everybody would heed the advice of Chief  Forester Grainger, the forests of British Columbia could be made practically fire-proof,  thus eliminating a vast amount of waste.  The United States government's first concrete ship, the Faith, so well justified its name  on its trial, trip that the. shipping boai'd at  once ordered forty concrete ships of 7500 tons,  eighteen tank steamers and twenty 400-ton  concrete barges for the Erie canal.  HOW ABOUT THE HARVEST?  The American Federation of Labor has  ] ledged its support to the American government in winning the war for freedom. At the  annual convention of the federation in St.  Paul yesterday, a resolution was adopted urg-  iiH'- President Wilson to take over, immediate  control of the .Western Union vtnd Postal  Telegraph companies, in view of the possibility of a strike of union telegrapher. This is  the proper spirit. If all the allied nations  will present a solid front to the enemy, victory will come sooner than we expect.  The order in council prohibiting the importation of luxuries "and non-essential goods,  except under special license, is not a mere extension of the national policy of fiscal protec-  tionr the Toronto News tellsi us. It is not a  new means -of giving further aid to Canada's  industries. It is a serious attempt of the government after long consideration to husband  Canada's financial resources, to lessen the adverse trade balance with the United States,  and to improve the exchange rate on New  York. The new policy will "involve inconvenience to some and loss to others, but this  is a time when the ability of the Canadian  people to maintain their army in the war must  be cansidered above everything else.  "I intend to stand up for Russia-as well as  for France."���������President Wood row Wilson.  Now, observes the New York World, will  liussia please stand up so  she can   be  stood  i>y?   The national executive committee of the  Canadian Patriotic Fund, at a meeting in Ottawa recently, decided that after March 31,  191.9, no further campaigns will be inaugurated for voluntaiy subscriptions from individuals, companies or municipal or provincial  bodies, but that any additional revenue thereafter required should be sought from the federal government. Naturally this can not be procured until the next session of the Dominion  parliament. It is expected that the contributions in  hand, and those   which  are  to!  The shortage of flour and wheat, products  is so serious  between   now  and next harvest  that every effort must be made by this continent to tide it over.    Farmers   by   producing  wheat are helping to win the war.   By saving  flour they and everybody else in  the  country  may also help towards the same end.   In this  connection it is of interest to note that in the  West it is estimathcl   that,   the three  prairie  provinces   this  spring  have sown an increase  of about 2;GOO,000 acres,  of which  2,000,000  acres are. of wheat. This is the report of J. I).  McGregor, director, of labor for. the  Canada  Food board, with offices  in   Winnipeg.    It is  based   upon   estimates  received from a large  number of points throughout the -{three1-, provinces  as  well  as upon the personal observa-_  tion of Mr. McGregor himslf.   If the average  crop from this.increased acreage  amounts  to  only ten bushels of wheat per acre, which is a  very low estimate  ih.daed, the  average being  more like twenty bushels, it would mean 20,-  000,000 bushels of wheat.   The average  consumption   of wheat  in  the wheat consuming  countries' the world over runs about five bushels per capita per year, so that  I he ���������increased  crop   which  Canada ,expects to produce  this  summer would feed 4,000,000 people for twelve  months.    At a most conservative calculation,  that  is to  say it would feed the bulk of the  British army.    The probabilities are that this  increase will be double that amount, and it is  to be hoped such indeed will be the  case,   as  there is need of every bushel.  Dr. J. W. Robertson, who made a tour of  Eastern Canada, in the production campaign  on behalf of the food board and the minister  of agriculture, estimates an increased acreage  of cultivated crops for the five provinces, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia  and Prince Edward Island'of 2,000,000acres.  Compared with former years, there will be  quite an increx?se in wheat acreage in these  provinces, but what this amounts to it is impossible to say, as the fall wheat did not winter very well in many districts where an attempt was made to grow it. Some of these  areas, however, have been replaced by spring-  wheat.  The Eastern provinces will grow also increased amounts of fodder for livestock, so  that the meat supply will benefit as well as  the dairy output.  Canadian farmers are responding magnificently to the call for increased production, despite the many other calls that have been  heard and answered. The world is at the  greatest orisis in its history, and the farmers  of Canada have real "'zed the fact and shown  the true Canadian spirit.

BRITISH COLUMBIA  TELEPHONE  COMPANY, LTD.  CONTROL OF  BEE SWARMING  One of the greatest problems in beekeeping today is the control of swarm  in<r. It is natural for a strong eolonv  of bees to swarm in early summer  when honey is coming in; but the  breaking up of the colony cuts down  the honey yield, while watching for  and hiving swarms takes a great deal  of the beekeeper's time, and the swarm  escape notice and fly-away.-  The methods of controlling swarming that have been tested at the Can  tral -Experimental tarm, Ottawa, fall  under three heads.  1. General Measures.���������Partly shad  ing the apiary; providing a large entrance with deep space between combs  ;, ml iloor; giving plenty of room iu the'  brood chamber and supers; and vow g  queens. These methods, while yalnab'e.  have been found insufficient in themselves to prevent the bees from raising  queens in preparation for .swarming.  2. Manipulations to prevent more  than one swarm. The qneen's wings  are clipped, preferable during fruit-  bloom, and when a prime swarm  issues and is still in the air, the queen  is picked up from the ground and  placed in a cage, and the hive is removed tea new stand. A new hive  containing the caged queeu is then  placed on the old stand to receive the  returning swarm, tlie queen being  liberated later.- The field bees join  the swarm,: leaving the parent hive so  much weakened that it is not likely  to swarui again. To make certain of  this, however, the parent hive may be  merely turned around and not re  moved to the distant stand until five  days later. This method of swarm  'control necessitates   immediate   atten  tion whon the swarm issues, but, as  the manipulations are simple,they can  often be carried out by the home folks  should the beekeeper be away.  3. Manipulations to prevent swarm  ing altogether. At the timaof writing  none of the manipulations that have  been tried has succeeded except the  cutting out of all queen cells every  seven or eight days, and this failed  during a heavy honey flow from clover  at Ottawa in 1916, when the bees  raised queens from worker larvae, and  swarms issued before the queen cells  were capped over. It has, however,  been found possible to prevent swarming in out iipianes, .forty miles north  of Ottawa, by this means, although it  entailed weekly visits from the middle  of May until tho middle of August,  and much time was spent in examining each colony.  Experiments in the control of  swarming are being continued, especially along the following lines, which  seem the most promising:  1. Testing system of raising brood  to the super. Many of. these will delay swarming under some   conditions.  2. Finding means by which the  brood chamber may be easily examined  without lifting off the supers. A hive  in which the brood combs are in a rack  that can be drawn out sideways is  being tried.  3. Endeavoring to breed a strain  that will not swarm, of which the preliminary step is to find out if the non  swarming character shown by some  queens is inherited. A queen showing  this character was found to retain it  the following year.  Canadians are being asked to use  move cornmeal. It is a good idea.  Properly . prepared there can be no  more appetizing dishes than ^those  made from cornmeal and corn flour,  and they are as healthful as they are  appetizing.
