Tbs session was mostly taken up with the reading of  communications, some of which  were rather' long and somewhat  wearisome.  A letter from the Grand Forks  Canning association stated that the  company had an opportunity to  lease the plant for three years if the  council would extend to the lessees  the same orivileges regarding city  rates and taxes as are enjoyed by the  association. On motion, the lessees  were assured of the same treatment  as the were granted old company by  bylaw.  A communication advocating the  adoption in this country of the  metric system of weights and measures was approved.  A communication from the  Princeton board of trade favoring  the southern loute for the iuterpro-  viucial highway was also approved.  Two or three letters from brokers,  offerings suggestions or making enquiries about the proposed issue of  refunding bonds, were referred to  the finanee committee.  A letter from the provincial inspector of municipalities, dealing  with the importance of keeping up  the sinking   fund   and  stating that'  BRITISH FUIT   .  BUYERS COMING  Solicitor of B. C. Municipalities Refuses to Give  His Gonsent to the Proposed $75,000 Issue  around and grouch about the encroachment of the Doukhobors, and  who expect foreign capital to come  to town to make a living for them,  who are now the pessimists of the  community.  It is definitely settled that several  British buyers will visit the Okanagan valley and other points in British Columbia this year. The provincial market commissioner has interviewed the leading men in the business in Britain, and they have  agreed to visit our fruit districts this  year for the dual purpose of getting  acquainted and negotiating business.  The outlook in Britain for prices  and demand for good, sound, well  selected fruit was never brighter.  Especially is this the case for Cox  Orange Pippin from 175 to 225 size,  and Yellow Newton Pippin from  120 to 150 size in London. A de  termined effort must be made by  shippers to send-euch apples as are  supsriorin quality to the Dominion  government No. 1 requirements and  only to ship apples of  first  quality.  British Columbia has a reputation  to make and now is the time to  make U.  If any apples are sold to the British trade on a f.o. b. be.sis the above  standard should be lived up to. ��������� It  is the only way to obtain a perma  nent bold on the British market.  The world's best goes there.  councils failing to do so could be  prosecuted for breach of trust, was  ordered filed.  Letters from the Great War Veterans' association at Victoria aud from  F. A. McDiarmid, solicitor for the  Union of British Columbia Municipalities, asked for detailed information ..about returned soldier and  about widows and orphans of  soldiers in order that a bill for their  substantial relief might be prepared  for the next session of the lrgisla-  ture.  After considerable hesitancy, and  after deducting S3.50   for  a   voluntary attendance at a meeting  of the  finance committee, the bill of H. L.  Mackenzie for S13S.50 in connection  with   the   collection   of delinquent  taxes by court proceedings   was  ordered to be  paid.   Itwas  also  decided to  dispense with his  services  forthwith.  This method of collecting j  delinquent   taxes  did  not seem to  appeal to the   present  council,   and  from figures*quoted it was probably  as   unprofitable   to   the   ratepayers  as   the     last      tax   sale,     when   a!  NO DECISION YET  RE EXPRESS RATES  So far no decision has been hand  ed down respecting express rates for  fruit shipments. British Columbia  shippers will therefore continue to  ship small fruits and vegetables at  former rate3, as no decision .can be  made effective before August that  alter the old rates.'  It is expected that the commis~  sioners will have their decision before August, und shipments of fruit,  especially apples, made after August will likely^be governed by it.  The market commissioner  wishes  to make the   above   announcement  in order to   remove anxiety and ob  stables now hindering sales of small  fruits.  This afternoon a meeting of the  finance committee of the city council was held in the city office, at  which a letter was read from F. A.  McDiarmid,' solicitor for B. C.  municipalities, who had been re  quested a draft a bylaw providing  for toe issue of $75,000 bonds to  take care of the debentures maturing in 1919 and 1920. Mr. McD.iar  mid refused to comply with the request, stating that there was no provision made in the consolidated  municipal clauses act for the issuance of refunding bonds.  The matter was discussed by the  committee, and it was decided to  recommend to the council that the  'money invested in war bonds, which  fall due in August, together with  the cash in the sinking fund, be  used for the redemption of the de  bentvres maturing this, year, ���������* and  that application be made to the.  next session of the iegUlature for  permission to issue bonds to take  care   of   the    debentures   maturiut-  , <**  next year.  After the meeting Chairman Hull,  of the finance committee,stated that  the new situation developed by Mr.  McDiarmid's action, would not af  feet the financing of the city this  year, us the war Oonds and the funds  in the sinking fund were sullicient  to take care of all the debentures  falling due this year.  If all the delinquent taxes were  collected the sinking fund would  only be about $25,000 shun.  Grand ��������� Forks Lodge, K. of P..  gave a~n enjoyable "At Home" to its  members who have returned from  overseas, on Tuesday evening. A  splendid program was rendered and  dainty refreshments' were served.  All of the returned men were given  a present.  Last Saturday Tony Nowakoski,  an Austrian, was arrested at Cascade by Geo. Stanfield, of the provincial police, and brought before  Neil McCallum, S.M., in this city,  charged wifh being an enemy alien,  having failed to report in accordance with the war measures act. He  was fined $50. The line was paid.

A telegram was received on Wednesday from W. M.

Walton Vant, who has been attending school in Nelson, returned  to Grand Forks today.  A New Tariff Principle  In his support of the budget taxation proposals, Hon. A. L. Sifton,  minister of customs, former Liberal  premier of Alberta, stated some interesting views on the tariff question. He pointed out that for the  first time in the history of Canada a  government faced with the alternative of making changes in the tariff  has found some other method of  raising the revenue necessary to carry  on the business of the country. That  is, the imcome tax,., imports have  been increased rather than the customs imports.On this quesiioiV-of:.  priucip^e, Mr. Sifton supported'.-the',  budget.-He believes that the distribution of the tax burden with equal  justice to everybody is much more  important in many respects than the  form of the law.  Fiscal laws can be changed.    The.  important   thing   is   that   they ie ���������  | framed with equal justice lo  all   interests.  This is a view"of tariff legislation  that is proper in these times of unrest. If the parliaments of the country are earnestly striving to deal out  equal justice, they are doing their  duty.

C,  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, JUNE 27, 1919  The  World Is   Turning  Observers of events in Russia can not help  but note how soon those who used the revolution as a means are discarding it in favor of  building up the'country. ��������� It has been found  that as long as revolution continues,the whole  people suffer, that revolution means destruction and that with destruction no constructive  policy is possible.  Those who make a study of world conditions wondered how long such exceptional  conditions would last. The greater the violence, they assumed, the sooner would it work  itself out. Now, after more than two years of  excessive revolutionary methods, after tearing-  down the whole social and economic system,  rulers in Russia find that they must start and  build up again. The yokes of their adventures  are about their necks, and they have been a  tremendous handicap, for actions have been  s! tipid and mistakes and misjudgments costly.  The fact that revolutionary Russia is ready  and glad to discard radical methods will  greatly retard the action of the same factors  in this country. During ^he past month or two  tenets which have been preached by agitators  have not been given such a ready reception.  Communities have found that it is far better  to proceed with the system in vogue and gradually work out something better, something  that will be permanent and of general benefit.  People are sane enough to realize that if they  want a new house to live in, the roof under  wnich they now have protection should not  be destroyed, leaving no place to live in meantime.  When radicalism first began to be preached  in this country, one of the popular slogans in  publications used by the radical propagandists  contained the lines, "I.W.W., One Big Union."  Gradually, those who were in accord w:th this  idea wormed their way into authority in labor  organizations, and now that they have control, arrogantly assume that they represent  the great body of workers. That this is not  the case was pointed out to the royal commission on industrial relations at its sttting in  Vancouver a short time ago. A labor man of  standing repudiated the allegation that labor  was in favor of radicalism, and said that a slur  had been cast on organized labor. It was fur-  tner declared that those in control in labor in  Vancouver did not represent the great bulk of  workmen who give stability to the community.  In Russia, ths element that favors destruction is being crushed by the saner heads, men  who were revolutionists themselves. In this  country, the true workman is repudiating the  impudence of those who would use the artisan  to foment anarchy.  It it acknowledged on all sides that some  readjustment must be arrived at in respect to  industrial relations, but this can not be effected in a day, neither can it be brought about  unless there is close cooperation and conference betwaen those affected. The radical idea  is to stop work, but to stop work', like stopping riding a bicycle, will cause the system to  topple. Nothing is to be gained that way.  Even if it were proceeded with on that basis,  the scheme would have to be theoretical,since  other hand if present conditions,and methods  are steadily improvod   by   suggestions   and  worked, out to better advantage, the  immediate result can be noted.   This is the practical  way.    Workmen realize that the best method  of readjustment is to hold that which they have.  Employers know that  under efficient conditions, production is increased, and benefits accrue to all. It  may not be possible  to apply  particular plans generally to all industries,but  if the.desire is common among those concerned, it should not be a difficult matter to  get  something started which will tend to improve  conditions^: There is no reason why the future  should   not contain promise, and, if Ave proceed on constructive  lines,   bring about  the  fulfilment of those hopes which have long been  before us. We must  be  practical, reasonable  and fair.  /f=  ^  NEGLIGENCE AND FOREST  EIRES IN THE DOMINION  Tremendous sums are lost yearly, in Canada  through forest fires. The government statistics  show that in one year alone ten million dollars'.worth of trees were consumed.  Special efforts are being put forth by the  provincial forest service department to lessen  the danger of outbreaks this summer. Lorest-  ers are tracking out set tiers and warning them  against making clearings by fire. It should be  remembered by settlers that as the law now  stands they must obtain special permission to  clear by fire, and that there are most stringent  laws making it incumbent on such persons to  see that fires do not get beyond their control.  Until quite recently there were no such binding restrictions���������their wisdom is obvious.  Camp fires are another great menace, many  bad conflagration being traced to them. It is  astounding With what childish unconcern those  travelling through woods and camping will  throw away lighted matches. Such carelessness is nothing short of criminal and ought to  be treated as such. There is something both  pathetic and terrible in the spectacle of enor-.  mous areas of gaunt and blasted trees.  There was never a time when timber was so  valuable the world over and laws safeguarding it can not be made too stringent.  IN HONOR OF PATCHES  This is a new country and we like new  things. We look down on patches. We wear  good clothes and good boots if we have not a  cent in the bank. We look down on the farmer roughly olad, but open our eyes when he  pulls a big roll out of his old pocket. In Erance,  in Scotland, in some parts of England, and  generally in all the older countries they often  wear patches on their clothes. That is one of  the great differences between the people on  the two sides of the Atlantic. But they wear  patches and lend us money by the million of  pounds. We disdain patches and pay them  interest at the rate of millions of dollars yearly. We nave learned to wear patches during  the war. We wear patches on our hearts for  the boys who sleep where poppies grow���������in  Flanders���������the land of patches. Many of our  brave boys who have come back* are wearing  patches���������patches on limb or body, patches  on sorely tried nerves. Wc think better of  patches than we did. The nations that wear  [latches save money, and they put their hard-  earned savings into safe hands���������they lend to  their country. The thrift stamp campaign has  been started to lienor patches. It is to patch up  the burdens we have to carry. It is to induce  uk to save a little. That benefits ourselves. It  is to induce to save for our country, and that  is a double and triple saving. A thrift stamp  costs 25 cents; for saving sixteen the government gives you #5 on January 1, 1924. Wear  a patch on your clothes with a  light heart  if!  Sometimes causes many and varied disturbances in seemingly unrelated parts of the body.

Hot cakes are mixed with  19  concretemixers, and 46  men skate  over   the   large   griddle   to keep it  greased. Soup is made in an   artifi  cial lake, keeping 34  dump  trucks  busy   hauling  the  necessary ingredients.

Petrie's Store  The Granby company pioduced  1,267,(iSS -pounds of copper at Anyox iu May; aecording to a New-  York report. This is comparable  with 707,301 pounds in, April and  90,682 pounds in March. Granby  reports a production of 576,460  pounds at Grand ioaks in March.  The reduction in March and April  results from a fire at Anyox in  March, when a converter building  was damaged. The profits of May  can not be estimated with confidence, as no statement of cost has  been issued recently, but on a basis  of a year ago they would be in the  neighborhood of ������75,000 at Anyox  alone, says the report A reduction  in costs was anticipated a year ago  through the installation of converters and the production of coke in a  Granby plant, which has been accomplished, but it is believed by  brokers that costs iu some departments have been decreased. Benefit  is expected of recent improvements  in the metal market.  LIFT CORNS OR  CALLUSES OFF  You can not reach The Sun's  numerous readers except through  its advertising columns.
