C., FRIDAY,   JUNE 6, 1919 ^ItX^V^ikr^''..      $1-00 PER YEAR  PHOENIX MIS'  BIG PRODUCTION  Value of Production of  Smelter in This City'for  Past Twenty Years $55,-  550,000  The Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smelting & Power company has  produced 12,814,946 tons of ore  from its mines at Phoenix since the  beginning of production twenty  years ago, according to an official  report. From the ore its smelter at  Grand Forks produced 636,291 ozs.  of gold, 4,330,345 ozs. of silver, and  271,079,000 pounds of copper, having an approximate value of 855,-  550,000. The capacity of the smelter  was increased until it reached 4500  tons daily, then becoming the largest copper smelter in the British  empire.  MILES GONVIGTED  OF SELLING WOOD  ALCOHOL; 10 YEARS  Richard L. Miles, colored, of Car-  mi,   who   was  formerly a   dealer in  second-hand goods in this  city, was  indited at the assizes in  Vernon last  week, before Mr.   Justice  Morrison,  for ibemurderof Alex Paul, an   Indian, the allegations of the  prosecution being that the prisoner supplied  him with wood alcohol,   the   drinking of which resulted in   his  death.  There was a second true bill  returned against the prisoner by the grand  jury for the murder,   under  simiiar  circumstances, of   Kalamalka   Paul,  father   of   Alex.   W. H. D. Ladner  represented the crown and \V. Clayton defended.  The evidence advaoced, according  to the Vernon News, by the prosecution showed that a few days before  Good Friday Miles purchased some  wood alcohol at Main's store in Pen  ticton and from J. W. S. Logie at  West Summerland. I  About the date named, April IS,  Miles was seen at West Summerland  in the company of the two Indians,  and there was a statement from  Daniel Paul, the eight year-old  grandson of Kalamalka Paul, that  he saw his uncle Alex give some  paper money to Miles, after which  they went behind a barn. On their  way home to Shingle Mill that evening, said the boy, through an inter-  preter, both his uncle and grandfather drank from live bottles, which  were then thrown away. Next  morning the boy saw his grandfather lying in a ditch near home  and he expected he was drunk.  Later he saw him lying at home,  aud he had not seen him around  since.  Dr. White, of Penticton, spoke of  being called to see Kalamalka Paul,  whom he found to be suffering from  wood alcohol poisoning, although he  admitted the same symptoms might  have been produced by exposure.  He found a bottle containing a small  poisonous character. Distortsd vision  or partial blindness was one of the  symptoms from which Kalamalka  Paul-was. suffering:'He was later on  called in to see Alex, but the man  died before he got there.  Witnesses traced Miles' movements between Summerland Penticton about the date named, and Wm.  Johnson, a restaurant keeper at  West Summerland, corroborated the  statement about the prisoner going  behind a barn with the two Indians.  Dr. McGregor, ,of Penticton, testified" that he had conducted a post  mortem and reached the conclusion  that the Indians had died from the  effects of poisoning by wood alcohol.  For the defence the prisoner was  put in the witness box and told a  long story regarding his movements  at Summerland Pentiction, where he  claimed he was trying to engage  teams from the Indians to haul-  wood. He denied that he had furnished the alcohol to the Indians.  He had bought two bottles, he said,  of methylated spirits - to use in a  spirit stove. One-of these had disappeared from his bag, and the other  had been accidentally spilt:  The jury was out only about a  quarter, of an hour, when they returned a verdict of "guilty of. man  slaughter." His lordship said that  he thoroughly concurred with tbe  verdict.  At the conclusion of the assizes  sentence of ten years' imprisonment  in the,peuitentiary was passed upon  Miles.  Gause of Present Social  Unrest Condensed to  the Smallest Possible  Space  JUDGMENT FOR  WOLFRAM AT ASSIZES  Mr. Justice MacDonald presided  at the spring term of assizes in the  court house in this city yesterday.

Legume crops may be grown  annually   and   then    ploughed     in  deeply;  this  operation   followed by  shallow surface tillage^and the proh  lem is   largely   solved.     But in districts    were   there  is    no irrigation,  au-.i the summer rainfall is not   sufficient to supply the   needs   of bt.'Ui  the trees and a gruwing cover   crop,  the problem is more   difficult.    The  mulch system offers partial   relief to  the dry districts, in that   it  .reduces  destruction of organic matter caused  by  tillage; conserves   moisture   thai  is    Unuuily    lost    I rum   exposed soil  suifaces.    At the experimental   station for-Vancouver island   the  orchard was established under  a   tillage  practice that during   ttie lourth year  a green tnulchmeiit.    Peas  and   red  clover are the mulch materials used.  Peas are sown   iu   October and   the  clover is seeded   in March, the rotation consisting of one year peas, two  years olover. The green crops are cut  early in June and at once spread beneath the trees.   By this method the  decay   of   the   mulch   materials will  greatly increase the organic matter in  the soil and there is no summer tillage   to   destroy   it   after it has been  produced.  An Editor's Apology  We wish to apologize to Mrs. Or-  ville Overholt. In our paper last  week we had   as  a   heading, "Mrs  Callum, Edith  Adams, Ernest  Smith, Joe Mola,  Patterson,  Danielson.      Bruce  Anna   McKinnon,  A volina  James-Overholt's Big Feet." The word we  had ought to have used is a brench  word, pronounced the same way but  spelled fete. It means a celebration  and is considered a very tony word.  ��������� Williamsville (N. D.) Item.

FRIDAY, JUNE G, 1.919  The Policy of Go-Ahead  Those who,make ca'study-of social and political economy 'have opportunities in times  like these to apply theories and also to so reconstruct them that they are adaptable for  practical purposes., -There'..was a time when, if  conditions were not satisfactory, a remedy was  suggested from behind a pair of spectacles,  but since everybody has been getting closer  together the, policy is to work  out a practical  This is the sensible method of improvement.  If there are two sides to a dispute, and there  must be two sides if there is any argument at  all, it does not help matters to have someone  propose a pet theory as a basis of settlement.  Neither is any good brought about when the  two parties stand apart and indulge in declaration and recrimation. Even in a case of war,  the opponents get together immediately and  stay together until the matter is settled. Now  that there has been enough -war to do everyone'in the world for several generations, cooperation, is the basis of settlement more than  ever.  The spirit of constructon is prominent. It is  recognized that as long as there is bickering  or dissatisfaction in any body of workers, efficiency is not up to standard. Production is  not what it might be and everyone concerned  feels the ill effect when the industrial machine  labors along instead of running smoothly. Instinctively, each of us feels that if progress is  to be made, matters of difference must be set-  go back, we lose what we have gained. Every  one of us knows that, and because we realize  that it iscommonscnse we are carrying it out  to the best of our ability. Perhaps in the old  clays, we may have been a little reserved in  acknowledging that we were clinging to old  ideas, but manliness is bring'ng us to where  we say, "Let us profit by our experiences aud  make the most of the future."  The past is only of use in pointing out to us  our mistakes and in showing us the right way  to proceed. The future can not be stated absolutely. The best we can do is to outline our  course, and, as we advance according to the  chart, take all possible precautions against  what snags may be floating about and weather  the storms as they arise. -No voyago is ever  made in which storms and difficulties are not  encountered, and in nearly every instance they  are weathered. When weather conditions are  unsatisfactory, no mariner thinks of sinking  his ship and casting about for a new one. On  the contrary, tho whole ship's crew get together,  work their hardest, and pull through.  We must go ahead, we can not stop. We  can not fail to realize that cooperation and  advancement work in one with the other.  f-  ^  s of I ester  fulfilled their mission when vision was improved.

JEWELER AND OPTICIAN  GRAlND forks, b. c.  <L  J  If heads of famiiies 'drawing interest from  Victory bonds do not consider the amount  large enough to invest on their own account,  they might well put it into war savings stamps  for their children. The holder of a $100 Victory bond receives'$5.50 a year, which, if put  into war savings stamps for a child, would  mean.-a; saving-of 10c a week on which an  amount equal to about 5 per cent simple interest is.paid. A $200 Victory bond annually  bears $11 interest, which, put into war savings  stamps, would mean the saving of a little over  20c a week, drawing about 5 per. cent simple  interest. A $500 bond pays $27.50 a year in  interest,which, invested in war savings' stamp,  would mean the saving of 51c a week, or 7-|-c  a day, for every day in fhe year, and constitute a very considerable sum. So iftheamount  paid in Victory bond interest is too small for  the parent to put into war savings stamps, it  should at least make a fine start for a child.  Of all present-day Sewing Machines.

Sold on easy monthly payments by  Complete Home Furnishers  Spepsisof  The process of drying potatoes so that they  can be kept indefinitely and transported as  easily as wheat or Hour has given them an important place in world commerce; but the potato is likely to become even more important  as a source of motive power if those experts  are right who prophesy that alcohol will take  the place of gasoline for internal-combustion  engines. Since a bushel of potatoes will produce a gallon of alcohol, and" since an acre of  land produces one hundred bushels of potatoes  in this country and more than two hundred  bushels in Germany, the possibility of making  alcohol in large quantities is obvious.  tied, ancl the way to settle them' is to discuss  them at first hand.  Adjustments in any large industrial undertaking can not be effected in a few moments.  Neither can there be a stated settlement in  advance. Points arise from time to time and  these have to be attended to at once, so that  results will not happen. There' needs to be a  permanent base of operations, some settled  method of procedure, and while general rules  may be decided upon for guidance, no particular lines of settlement can be laid down. It is  just the same as in building a house. Plans are  drawn up, but the working foremen are always  on the ground to see that troubles which arise  are attended to and not allowed to develop  ���������into interference.  The workmen of today should .lealize that  the way to improve the present system under  which we arc engaged is to keep going, work  out new suggestions and apply what litis been  proved to be beucficial and correct. They  should know that what is in the interest of  one part of the business, assists the other and  that without cordial relations all the way  through there is less benefit to all. Doctors  tell us that if one part of the body suffers an  injury, the whole physical system feels the effect, and that, according to the laws of nature,  the whole body rallies to the support of the  injured part. So unconsciously, perhaps, the  industrial body has been gradually proving the  same principle, ancl evolving in a practical way  a method to cure ills which exist, without unnecessarily jarring the whole system.  Cooperation  is construction, and  construction is absolutely necessary if we   would progress.

Although the Russian government used to  print more than 3,000,000,000 rubles of paper  money every month, it is unable now to get  the raw materials to print more than 1,250,-  000,000 rubles. Even that much smallee amount  is largely in the form of "kerenki,]' roughly  printed notes for twenty and forty rubles,  which arc very easily counteifeited, for when  the Bolshevists seized the state bank and tried  to continue the bank notes of the old regime,  they were unable to master the difficult processes, and on the few notes of the old style  that they did manage to print the numbers  were identical, not consecutive.  Having obtained absolute control of the  surface rights of nearly one-half of the North  American continent, the Canadian Pacific  railway is now reaching out for franchises to  dominate the aerial transportation business.

There's an obligation that goes with party-  line telephone service���������an obligation  shared by all persons on the line, an obligation which each owes to the others.  Inordinarily iong conversations frequently  cause annoyance and even grave distress.  Some other person on the line may be  trying to call a doctor er make some similarly urgent call. Perhaps, too, there's a  most important message, incoming, for  some one on the line���������perhaps even for  the person who is "holding things up."  Think it over!   The obligation is one that  -will apppal to all who give consideration  to it.

Sir.���������It is untrue that our neighbors, the Independent Doukhobors,  annoy us by  unseemly  exhibitions  of the nude,     We, who live   within  a few hundred yards of them, have  never witnessed any indecency; but,  as most of the animal kingdom will,  when irritated, make themselves obnoxious to others, I -trust you  will  stop insinuating that  we are  complaining of   their conduct.    When  annoyed   by   constant  prodding  a  skunk stinks, a man  sweats, a baby  yells, a lion eats  you,  a suffragette  hunger strikes,  a porcupine shoots  its quills, a goat sheds its  clothes,  and if you go butting in  and monkeying   with  any  of the above you  only get what you are asking   for.  The  Community  Douks, who have  been  our neighbors   for   the   past  seven  years, are kindly and industrious, hospitable and  honest,  and  I   am   indebted  to |them for many  little acts of kindness. Yours, etc.,  G. A. S. Bell.  Grand Forks, May 25, 1919.  'Mr..and '..Mis.'.

' Tricking a Witness  The best piece of cross-examination  ever heard in the law courts was done  by the late Mr. Moutague Williams  many years ago.  He was defending a man of good  position against whom a very serious  charge had been made. The only  real question was identity, and this  turned on the evidence of a young  woman who swore positively that she  had seen the prisoner at the particular  spot on the nighq of the fireworks.  Everybody was expecting a long  cross-examination of the witness  when Montague Williams rose to his  feet.  But he only asked one question,  which was, "I suppose it was a bright  moonlight night, and so you did not  see the fireworks well?"  Back came the answer: ''Nothing  of the sort, sir; it was as dark as  pitch."  Montague Williams sat down. Of  course, if it had been as dark as the  girl described she could not have been  able to distinguish the accused. So  the man was acquitted.
