You can therefore assure the  people of Grand Forks that a field  party will make exhaustive and final  reports early in the season, and  should such reports be favorable I  have uo doubt but that the"-work  will be carried.on."  In view of the encouraging nature of the contents of the letter,: it  was decided, after a general discussion, that it would not be necessary  to send a delegation to Victoria at  the present time. Those present  thought it would be advisable to  await further developments, and in  lieu of the delegation the resolution  printed below was adopted, and the  chairman was instructed to forward  it to Mr. Thompson, which he did  on the following day:  . "I have pleasure in acknowledg  ing receipt of your letter of the 25th  of February regarding the matter of  irrigation for Grand Forks valley.  At a meeting of the ranchers and  business men, held in*the city hall  last night, the contents of the letter  were made public and discussed.  As chairman of the meeting, I was  instructed to forward you a copy of  a resolution which was passed unanimously. The resolution is as follows: -  "That the thanks and appreciation of this meeting be conveyed to  Mr. Thompson for his efforts; with  the government towards the securing of an irrigation- system for the  Grand Forks, valley, and further  urge that he use his best endeavors  to have the government make such  provision as will make it possible  for the irrigation project to   be  car-  purpose, and the local chapter decided to.send SSO as its portion of  tbe undertaking, which will cost  ������25,000.  Lady Members'  Maiden Speech  Mrs. Ralph Smithjthe first woman  to sit as a member of t"he British  Columbia legislature, made her  maiden speech last .Friday afternoon  iu the course of the debate on the  speech from the throne. She was  heard by a full house and crbwded  galleries.  "1 have come to you neither,-with  a chip on my shoulder nor with a  sword in my hand, but with a willingness to meet you on equal ground  as representatives of the people,"  she told her fellow  members.  By the ruling of the speaker, Mrs.  Smith had to remove her-hat before  speaking.  Crowded galleries heard her, listening with interest to her declaration that -while she came to the  house with decided liberal tendencies  she was there solely with the purpose of working iu the best interests  of the people, and especially of the  women and' children. Only, she said,  when the woman's viewpoint was  taken into consideration could the  best results in legislation be accomplished. Referring to the problem  of the returned soldier, she said the  exemption of the property of soldiers  aud sailors from taxation was very  necessary, and she also hoped the  moratorium would'be extended and  its provisions made short, shacp  and'decisive, so that there should be  no doubt of its meaning.  The care of the returned soldiers  would,' she thought, involve large  expenditures, but it must be grap  pled with. She hoped opportunities  would be made to enable the men to  goon the laud with prospects of  earning a decent livelihood. She  suggested that the women of the  province should be utilized in every  way in increasing production. The  situation in British Columbia with  respect to neglected and destitute  children was serious in her opinion.  She was glad to see the government  was dealing with it. The institutional phase of the legislation should  give place to the domestic. On some  questions the province needed to  change to the right-about.  He Will Make No Changes  in the Cabinet, It Is  Announced  METEOROLOGICAL  Victoria, March 5.���������At a fully  attended caucus meeting of the'  Liberal members of the legislature,  held this evening, Hon. John Oliver  was chosen as government leader  to succeed the late lion. H. C.Brewster. Fie will be sent for by  the lieutenant-governor tomorrow  morning and subsequently will announce1 his cabinet. There will be  no'ahanges in the personnel of the  administration. Mr, Oliver will remain niinistei\of railways in addition to being premier, and ho by-  elrction will be necessary. Tbe vacancy arising in Victoria owing to  the death of Premier Brewster will  not be filled duriug the present session.  Tonight's caucus lasted for three  hours, and it was not until several  ballots had been taken that Hon.  John Oliver was finally chosen as  leader. In the first ballot the names  submitted were those of Hon. J. H.  King, Hon. John Oliver, Hon. J.W.  DaB. Farris, Hon. W. Sloan and  Hon. J_. D. MacLean. The latter  dropped out after the first count and  Mr. Sloan was eliminated in the  second ballot. Dr. King led in  every ballot until the last, which resulted in the choice falling on Mr.  Oliver. VVheu the result was announced it was made unanimous.  Subsequently Hon. John Oliver, the  prospective premier, entertained his  colleagues to supper at the Empress  hotel.

Applications  for membership were made by Mrs.       A   sitting   of  the county   court'  Seed Grain  Distribution  Farmers who have not already  made provision for securing the  seed grain necessary for the crops  they plan to grow during the present year will now have great difficulty in obtaining good selected seed.  Throughout the Dominion of Can  ada and the United a great scarcity  of practically all kinds of seeds exists, and those who have not as yet  filled their requirements would be  well advised to take immediate steps  to do so.  The provincial, department of  agriculture is receiving many requests from farmers asking that they  be supplied with seeds of different  kinds. It is obvious that it would be  an impossibility, neither would it be  sound policy, for the department to  undertake to meet the requirements  of all those people who ask for assistance of this kind. It is the duty  of cultivators of the soil to make  provision-themselves for their seed  requirements, and all progressive  farmers under ordinary conditions  do so.  Instances occur, however, when  there may be a total o^partial crop  failure in certain districts where the  assistance of the government in the  way of supplying seed grain is, in  the public interests, both   necessary  crop production is essential for the  well-being and very existence of our  Biitish empire, it would be nothing  short of a calamity if any lands  ready for crop were to lie idle owing  to the owners being unable to secure  the necessary seed.  The minister of agriculture has  therefore authorized the purchase by  the department^ a number of carloads of wheat, barley and oats,  which will be placed for distribution  at those points where there is the  greatest need for seed. The Seed  Grain act introduced on the opening  day of the provincial legislature,  gives authority to the minister of  agriculture to purchase seed grain'to  an amount not exceeding 820,000, at  any one time, for distribution to  farmers, the recipient of the grain  to pay the actual cost of same, or, in  the event of his being unable to do  so on delivery, he shall give a promissory note which shall be payable  on a.date to be fixed by the minis,  ter, not later than the 31st day of  December next followidg the date  of the sale, with interest payable  thereon at a-rate not exceeding 7 per  cent per annum. As an additional  security for payment of seed grain,  the minister shall file for registration in the land registry office for  the district in which the lands described in the application for the  seed grain are situate, a certificate  which establishes a first charge  against the lands as addition al security for the eeed grain supplied,  A number of carloads have already  been purchased.by the department,  but farmers are advised not to rely-  on this source of supply, as it is  highly probable that, owing to the  great scarcity, it may be impossible  for the department to fill all requirements.       '-'*'.  In undertaking this work the department accepts no responsibility  whatsoever. Every effort *vill be  made to secure the best seeds procurable at the lowest prices prevail���������_  ing, but it must be clearly understood that the department does not  guarantee either quantity or quality,  and that its main object will be to  have a supply on hand for distribution to those farmers who by reason  of crop failure last year, or through  other legitimate causes, are not in a  position to secure for themselves the  necessary seed grains for seeding  lands that they have ready for crop.  Y  TO DEAD PREMIER  Liberal   Leader  Is Buried  With Impressive Ceremonies at Victoria  Victoria, March 6.���������With Jim  pressive ceremony the remains of  Premier Brewster were interred here  Tuesday. Nearly fifteen thousand  persons turned out to watch the  parade, which was over a mile long,  and included members of parliament, civil and military dignitaries,  bodies of troops and sailors and  many citizens.  Amohg those present were Senator Shatford, W. A. McKenzie, M.  L.A., and Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Turner. Mrs. Turner was a niece of the  late premier.  The Metropolitan Methodist  church was crowded hours before  the opening of the service, which  was conducted by the leading  clergy. The obsequies at the grave  were in charge of the Masons.

Insttute Meeting  m Tomorrow  At tbe Institute meeting to be  held at 3 o'clock on Saturday afternoon (tomorrow), there will be a  discussion on the cost of production  of protatoes and the different methods of cultivation.  Arrangements have been made  with the department for holding two  apple packing classes for pupils of  the Central and High schools, but  so far.the secretary has not received  enough names to arrange for an  adult class.  The Institute secretary has received word from Victoria that G. S.  Harris will addresn meetings here on  the subject of the increased hog production campaign on Wednesday  and Thursday, March 13 and 14.  Eveiy one interested, including  school pupils, should attend these  meetings. The time and place of the  meeting will be announced  by   pos-  In these times, when the greatest ters  A Sportmen's  Rendezvous  H. P. Thompson, of Lynch Creek,  was in the city on Monday. Besides  opeiating   the   only   hotel between  Grand Forks  and  Franklin   camp,  Mr. Thompson is also mayor of  the  North Fork lumber metropolis.    At  present  Lynch    Creek   is   teeming  with   activity,   and   Mr. Thompson  states  that'business   there is in an  excellent  condition.     The   lumber-  industry is at present  looked  upon  with   a   patronizing  air by  all the  allied nations, and  the  lumberjack  is tbe autocrat of the labor world.  Mr. Thompson states that he  can see no reason why his hotel  should not become'a rendezvous for  sportsmen next summer. Fishing in  tbe North Fork at that point is good  sport. All kinds of fish, excepting  the tarpon and the manatee, abound  there. One of the beauties about  fishing at Lynch Creek is, that  it is quite unnecssary to take a postgraduate course in prevarication in  a correspondence school in order to  corroborate your fish stories. You  can take your evidence out of the  river.  And when you tire of fishing,  you can find plenty of big-game  hunting within easy walking distance of the hotel. Some of the  most thrilling bear stories in British  Columbia have come out of that district. One of them found its way  into the London Times a few years  ago. It is true that the kangaroos  and the poler bears are now nearly  extinct in that region, but there is  still an ample supply of savage animals in the back hill to make it interesting for the true sportsman.

The Great Northern  will continue its daily passenger  service, but all special excursion  rates will be eliminated during the  coming summer. /  THE   SUN,    GRAND   FORKS,   B. G.

C.  OFFICE:    COLU.MTvIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FEIDAY, MARCH S, 1918  Although they were not entirety unprepared for the sad news, the people were  shocked on Saturday morning last to learn of  the sudden death, in Calgary, of Premier  Brewster, after he had made a heroic fight for  life. The expressions of sorm-w were universal. They were not confined to the followers  of his own party, because Mr. Brewster was  respected by all parties. His private life was  without a blemish, and his public career has  been marked by honesty of purpose and an  endeavor to at all times follow the dictates of  | liberty; the Bolsheviki tries to improve on that  j liberty, and hands the country" back to a  harsher despotism than that from which it was  wrested. The people of British Columbia  abolish the liquor traffic. But the Utopian reformers are not satisfied with this reform.  They want the people to give an account of  their actions every minute of the twenty-four  hours. Will they, too, play the part of the  Russian Bolsheviki?   -  VT   -**  " -s- ���������-  ^  Do Not Neglect Your,  F YOU are suffering from eye-strain or  have trouble in reading or sewing, call  and have your eyes examined.

They arc dem lucky that the Russian people  have not requested them to resign wearing  their heads.  his conscience. When he was elected to the  premiership, Mr. Brewster inherited a very  unpleasant oilice. The treasury was empty  and the province had about reached its borrowing limit. He set to work to bring the  province back to its high financial standing  during the days of tlie real estate boom and  inflated values by increasing taxation. Had  he lived to complete his work, his efforts  would not have been appreciated, because rto  raise a man's taxes, no matter how urgent the  need may be, is an unpardonable sin in the  liyrht of the average citizen. We do not agree  with this view. We think 'that Mr. Brewster  was justified in the policy he adopted to raise  revenue, and the highest eulogy we can bestow upon lrm is, that he was an honest, con  sciontious man, not a very shrewd leader, but  at times doing what he thought would be to  greatest good to the greatest number.  a When we made the statement, a couple of  weeks ago, that in future The Suit would not  aecept whiskey ads. or objectionable patent  medicine ads., we fully anticipated that.there  would be at least one man. in this citv ' Avho  con Id not.understand such a move..

A little Danderine tonight���������now���������any time���������-will surely save  your hair.  Get a small bottle"'of Knowlton's  Danderine from any drug store. You  surely can iave beautiful hair and lots  of ������if if you will just try a little Danderine.    Save your hair!     Try it!

WINNIPEG AVENUE  "Tfie Canadians in  France,"  A Great War Map  -Canadian homes will no longer have  diffienlty in following tho Canadian  troops in France. There has just been  issued a map of the European war  area that clearly shows every point of  interest that has been mentioned in  dispaches since the Canadian forces  first landed in France. It has been  made especially for the great Canadian weekly, the Family Herald and  Weekly Star of Montreal, and is a  credit indeed to Candian enterprise.  It is a marvel of detail and yet not  crowded. It is in four colors and  about 2Jx3������*feet and folded into a  very neat cover, about .5x11) inches.  The map is surrounded by a border of  the .regimental badges and coat of  arms of nearly every-battalion that  left Canada, from Halifax to Vancouver. Every important point can  be recognized at once. That portion  of the map covering France is in a  soft color with names of towns and  battle scenes in black, easily recognizable. The map is endorsed by returned military experts as most complete aud accurate in detail. The map'  could not be produced, except in such  large/quantities as The Family Herald  will use, at less than two dollars a  copy, yet it can be had absolutely  free with The Family Herald.  The publishers of The Family Herald arid Weekly Star for several  months back have been fighting hard  against the , necessity of increasing  their, subscription rates, but eventu  ally had tocome.to it like, most other  papers. The increase, however, is a  mere trifle���������twenty five cents a year,  making their new rate $1.25���������and  with the year's subscription they will  include a copy of this great war map  free of charge. This is certainly a generous offer, and one that Canadians  will appreciate. Many expected a  much lavger increase'in the subscription price of The Family Herald, and  are surprised at-* the small" extra  amount charged.  The enormous circulation of The  Family Herald and Weekly Star  should he still greater when this offer-  becomes known.

News of the City  It was very difficult to find anybody in town yesterday who was  willing to admit that he had wit  nessed the "Henpecked Henry"  performance at the Empress on the  previous evening. It was a show of  a single joke, and that did not measure up to any one of tbe -bright  stories printed in last week's Sun.  It was a "henpecked" audience.  Tuesday was a legal holiday, by  proclamation, throughout the province as a ma-rk of respect to the  memory of the late Premier Brewster.
