I can guess as well as you." ������J..UU   X XOXV    liiALl  PREMIER OLIVER  VISITS IRE CITY  Prime Minister and Hon.  J. D. MacLean Spoke to  ! ing tbe hospitals more liberally, aud  he showed that British Columbia  was twice as liberal in this respect  as the prairie provinces.  The balaoce of Mr. MacLean's  speech was taken up with a refutation of the charges  leveled against  | the government by Mr. Bowser  wben he last spoke in Grand Forks.  Mr. Bowser bad criticized the government for squandering money on  ja provincial audit.'/ Tbe audit, said  a Lar^e    Audience    on the doctor,   had  disclosed,   among  Monday Evening  Hon. John Oliver, prime minister  of British Columbia, and Hon. J.  D. MacLean, minister of education  and provincial secretary, arrived in  Grand Forks at 12 last Monday,  Mr. McPherson having driven them  down from Greenwood in bis big  motor car. One of the first remarks  the premier made after his arrival  was, that coming the Phoenix  hill and looking on the orchards on  the Covert in full bloom was the  grandest sight he had seen on his  ipresent journey through the prov  nee.  After luncheon the premier and  Dr. MacLean were taken for an  auto drive through the lower part  of the valley in E. C. Henniger's  car, the party comprising tbe government officials and three members of  the executive of tbe local Liberal association. The object of the outing  was tor show the premier and the  provincial secretary the land around  Cascade available for a soldiers' settlement community. To give  the visitors a proper conception of  the amount and the quality of the  land that can be acquired for this  purpose, Cascade, Laurier and Christina Lake.were visited. The visitors  appeared to be favorably impressed  . with the appearance of the lands,  and also expressed some surprise ft  the reasonable valuation placed on  them.  At 5 o'clock the party returned to  the city, and from that hour until  6 the ministers were in consultation  with the executive of the Liberai  association. -  The Public Meeting  At 8 o'clock in the evening the  premier and tbe minister of educan  tion addressed a public meeting in  tbe Empress theater. Every seat in  tbe house was filled, aud tbe standing soom in the rear was also taken  up. The chair<was taken promptly  at the appointed time by R. Camp*  belj, president of tbe Liberal associa  tion, who introduced the speakers  with brief but appropriate  remarks.  Dr. MacLean was pleased to speak  in the city on tbe same platform  with tbe premier. He was gratified  to see the large audience present.

The government, he said, ity with the local project. He said,  had been criticized for  not support- however, that the  money market is  other things, the slipshod method in  which the late government had done  business. He considered that tbe  cost was money well spent. Another  criticism the leader of the opposition  had made was in regard to the  amount of money tbe government  had spent for royal commissions.  The speaker Bhowed by actual figures that the present government  had only expended one-tenth as  much for this purpose as ' the old  regime.  The salary of Premier Oliver had  not been increased, as had been alleged by Mr. Bowser. On the con  trary, it was, the speaker said, considerably less than that drawn by  the former premier.  The cost of government had naturally increased, because salaries  and the cost of living had increased,'  Mn MacLean devoted a great  deal of time to 'the government's  treatment of the returned men. As  ah evidence of their attitude towards the the government, he cited  the fact that in the last by election  the Liberal candidate had received  88 per cent' of the soldiers' vote.  Their interests, he said, would be  well looked after in the future.  Premier Oliver's introduction to  the audience created enthusiastic  applause. He was glad of an op������  portunity to appear before the people of Grand Forks to give an account of his stewardship,  The premier went fully into tbe  dealings of the late government with  Mackenzie and- Mann, whom he  characterized as the greatest confidence men the world had ever pro  duccd. These artists had let contracts to themselves as subsidiary  companies of the C.N.R. After discussing railway matters and railway  legislation at-length, he appealed to  the audience to be Britishers. They  had had tbe money and squandered  it; now they must pay tbe piper.  In other words, they should not  grumble at increased taxes or think  of repudiation.  Dealing with the question of in  creased taxation, the premier said  the condition of the province's finances at the time present government  come into power had made this step  absolutely imperative. The former  government had collected vast rev  enues, but they had been expended  with the utmost prodigality. Citing  instances, he mentioned cases where  costly   court houses had been con-  Engineer Holland Will  Arrive From Victoria  Today and Start Work  at Once  Government Engineer Holland  will arrive in the oity todcy, and  will at once commence to survey the  lands in the Columbia & Western  land grant in this neighboring,  which have reverted to tbe government.

Second,  .tenders are being called for construction of Cascade to Rossland road.  Third, arrangements are made for  satisfactory improvement to the  telephone line to Franklin camp.  Best wishes for succeesfui meeting."  The premier was proud of the  Dolly Varden lagislation. He con������  sidered it one of the best acts ever  placed on tbs statute books.  Mr. Oliver concluded his speech  by reviewing the Woman Suffrage  act; an act passed by the present  government giving the mother equal  gusrdianship of her children with  tbe father, and an act establishing  juvenile courts and also providing  homes . for incorrigible children  where medical examination and  treatment were given those whose  mental condition wae found to be  responsible for their moral delinquency. Tbe fixing of a minimum  wage for women and prescribing  the conditions under which they  shall work was another act of  this government from which over  2000 women had already benefited.  Similar provisien had been made  for girls under 18 years of age. Laws  had aiso been passed protecting  wives deserted by their husbands,  providing for childless married  couples legally adopting children,  and an act providing for mothers'  pensions.  Mr. Oliver's peroration was one  of the finest examples of oratory  heajd In this city for many years.  H. A. Glaspell and  C. A.  S.   At  wood made fervent appeals for irrigation. The meeting closed with the  Binging of the national antbem.  Premier Oliver and Dr, MacLean  left for Roesland Tuesday morning  on tbe Gr^eat Northern passenger  train.  GIVE THE BEES  LOTS OF ROOM  [kxpekimental farms note.]  Swarming is tbe bees' natural  method of increase, and the instinct  to swarm ie particularly strong under the extremely favorable condi-  ions for bee activity of tbe Canadian  spring and summer.  The uncertainty of swarming, the  lo^6 of boney following tbe division  of the working force of the colony,  the possibility of swarms escaping,  and the difficulty of preventing  swarming iu many parts of Canada  without considerable labor, all make  tbe control of swarming quite the  greatest problem in bee management.  To encourage work in the hive  and to discourage the desire to  swarm, plenty of room, both in the  brood chamber and in the super.and  large entrances should be given to  ail colonies as soon as conditions are  favorable, but these measures will  aot always be enough to prevent  swarming in many places, especially  in the north.  If the apiary can be watched all  day, it is a good plan to clip tbe  queen's wings at fruit bloom time.  When the - colony swarms, remove  tne hive to a new stand, place on  the old stand an empty hive, to  which the swarm will return, the  queen having been meanwhile  picked up and placed in a cage in  tbe new hive. The field bees will  .join the swafpa and the parent  colony will be so much weakened  by their loss that it is not likely to  swarm again.  Where   the  apiary   can  not  be  watched,   the   plan   of   preventing  swarming by examining   all brood  in every colony every week and destroying all queen cells is* very   laborious and not always effective.  A  similar plan is to remove the queen  at the beginning of the clover honey  flow, and   eight or nine days later  destroy   all   tbe queen ceils except  one, or destroy all and  give a  ripe  cell of select parentage. In this way  a young   queen  is   obtained which  will not swarm and, besides, will be  more  prolific   in the fall and next  year than the old queen, and will be  less likely to swarm next year. This  plan,   however,   causes   a    certain  amount   of   loafing  until   the new  queen starts laying. This loafing can  be much reduced by   introducing a  ripe queen cell at the time the queen  is removed, and if this is done early  enough before any  preperations for  swarming have   been  started,    the  bees   are unlikely to  build   further  queen cells.    Where, however,   one  prefers to use the surer method,only  those colonies that are actually  pre  paring to swarm should   be treated,  and some means for quickly ascer  taining if a colony is building queen  cells   in   preparation  for swarming  should be employed. One of tbe best  of these is to have the brood nest occupy two chambers,   aod   then   by  Sylvester Quits and New  York Executive Takes  Over the Management  of Company at Anyox  Vancouver, June 2.��������� Reorganization in the higher direction of th*  Granby Consolidated Mining &  Smeltiug company is iu progress.  R. F. M. Sylvester, managing director in British Columbia,has resigned  and a new executive, sent from New  York to take charge in this province, will have his headquarters at  Anyox. Mr. Sylvester today confirmed the report of his retirement  from the company. At a meeting  of the directors in New York on  May 26 tbe position of managing  director was abolished.  H. S. Munroe has now been sent  from New York to be general manager and will procee'd to the company's mine at Anyox to take  charge. W. A. Williams, for many  years chief of smelting and other  operations in the north, has.been  given an extended leave of absence.  A new consulting metallurgist has '  arrived in the person of E. P. Mathe-  son. Mr. Munroe is an American  with an experience in copper production gained in the western United States.  It is an open secret that fundamental differences of opinion on broad  questions of the future policy of the  company have developed during the  last year between the New York  directors and Mr Sylvester, and the  latter's decision to retire has been  tbe result. Mr Sylvester i? under  stood lo have strongly favored an  aggressive policy which would include acquisition of new prosppcts  and the development of new properties. Granby is one of the largest  corporations in British Columbia.  Its assets have steadily become  stronger, aod are now estimated at  between $ 11,000,000 and 512,000, -  000.

Forks, B. C.  OFFICE:   'COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 1920  That the public meeting Monday evening  displeased a portion of the audience, especially some of the ranchers, it is useless to attempt to conceal. That they were displeased,  and. why they were displeased, was too apparent. And yet the grounds for their.displeasure may not havo been as tenable as they  supposed. They came to the meeting to hear  the question of irrigation for the valley discussed and to obtain, if possible, some definite  pronouncement from the ministers regarding  governmentaf aid for the project. The gathering was. advertised as a public meeting, and  the members of government came to give an  account of their stewardship to the people.  That they succeeded in doing this is undeniable. At the same time the displeased portion  of the audience, having come to the meeting  under a misapprehension, undoubtedly had  some cause for their displeasure.  tions from the party on this score. And no  matter what steps may be taken, or may not  be taken, on the proposed project, we do not  believe that the defeat of a government that  has done more for the farmer than any that  preceeded it would be justifiable.  There is a fine old saying to the effect that  "God helps those who help themselves." In  formor generations people relied more on their  own recourse. Now they want the governments to do everything. As a natural consequence manysectionsof the country which have  not the requisite "pull" with those in power  must smart under the lash of injustice. When  we were a boy the farmers of our'county built  their roads, the people of our district built  school house and paid the teacher's salary;  if there was a slough or a lake to be drained,  the people did the work tqemselves, without  calling' on the government for assistance.  Government aid for local improvements was,  ^m.fact, unknown in those days. It was the  days when men had faith in their own powers,  and when the people lived within their means.  And none were every known to go hungry.  Now paternalism is at large in the land. If a  poor man gets a day's work he takes his family to the picture show, and then when he  happens to be out of employment for a week  he calls on the municipal or provincial government for assistance to pay his grocery bill.  And still we wonder why taxes are increasing.  THE FAMILIAR ALPHABET  has many strange shadings and contorted angles to eyes of defective  vision.

MORRISON  Jeweller and Optician  GKAND FORKS, B.C.  ������    ���������   ���������  Real Estate and Insurance  That the question of irrigation is of vital importance to the people of this valley does not  admit of controversy. But it may be well to  make an effort to endeavor to discover to what  extent the government would be blamable for  failure to support the scheme.under certain  conditions. Sit down and do a little Soctratic  self-examination. The case most frequently  cited in support of ssistance for irrigation in  this district is the government's action in as  sisting the Okangan fruit growers. But this is  not a parallel case with .the situation here.  In the.Okanagan the government merely came  to the assistance of the farmers to help them  to repair and maintain old irrigation syste'ms,  and to save them frOm being swindled by private corporations. No new systems were undertaken there. Here we asking for an entirely  new irrigation plant. As far as we are aware,  no similar work is at present being carried on  in any section of the province, except in connection with soldier settlement areas. If other  districts of the province are gettiug improvements which we need, and are not getting,  ihen an injustice is being done us, but, on the  other ha d, f we demand money lor woik which  no other portion of the province is getting,  then we sanction an injustice being handed  out to our fellow citizens in other districts.  Are we willing to insist on a brand of "jus  tice" which is an injustice to other people?  If we had discarded the idea of paternalism years ago, the chances are we would- have  an irrigation system in operation in this valley  today. If we discard the idea tomorrow, there  is still an even chance that we get water on  the land as soon we would be waiting on the  government. If the government builds the  system, it takes a lien on the land for the repayment of the cost of the plant; if we organize a water municipality and issue bonds, the  land is pawned for the redemption of the  bonds. There is not much choice between the  two methods, and whether the work is done  by the government or by the farmers themselves, the cost would probably be about the  same. A competent eugineer, however, working for the ranchers, should be able to install  the plant cheaper than the government, because governments are supposed to have an  unlimited supply of money, and workmen have  never been known to work themselves to  death while employed by them.

PARE, Proprietor  Yale Hotel, First Street  While we have by no means given up hopes  that the government will do everything in its  power to aid the fruit growers of this valley  to get water on their land, yet certain contingencies may arise that would make such assistance impossible. To prepare the farmers  of the district for such an eventuality, the  above note of warning is sounded with the  best possible intention. The premier, in his  speech Monday evening, stated that the  money market was beginning to tighten, and  there is every indication that the financial sitn-  tion of the country will   become  more  acute  from now on.

General uncertainty as to who will pay the  new taxes and how they shall be paid is well  illustrated by the conditions which prevails  among the business men of tha entire country.  Retail merchants who have applied to the Ottawa government for inf'ormatiod on the sub  ject were informed that the new taxes were  effective May 19, and that any merchant failing to collect must pay the taxes out of his  own pockets. A common misunderstanding is  in regard to the tax applying to the gross  price of an article taxed or to the difference in  cost between that and the sum exempted. It  is the gross price that is taxed. For example,  a $45 suit is exempt; if a suit costs $46, how-  eve.i, the tax to be added would be $4.60,  making the suit cost $50.60. If the cloth is  bought at a store and taken to a tailor to be  made up, the tailor must collect the tax for  tlie work done and for the price of the cloth  well. The new taxation is based largely on  that in force in the States, where the practice  is to make the sales slip show the price of the  article and the war tax also.

No memories of this lost Niagara  linger even in aboriginal tradition.  When it existed.or when it ceased to  exist has not even been conjectured.  It may have been thundering in  -primeval solitudee before the age of  man. The mastodon aud the pterodac  tyi may have pastured upon its brink.  Giant winged lizards may have sailed  above its clouds of rainbow vapors  The'engineers who partly uncover  ed it believe it was the original Niagara marking the course of the paleo  lithic river that connected Lake Eric  and Lake Ontario.

BUSINESS r^MAN,  have you ever thought  that advertising puts 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  cani 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 ot 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.  && THE   SUIS.
