 :-^,  n-i  Legislative Library  Kettle Valley Orchardist  ax:  SIXTEENTH YEAR���������No   20  GRAND FORKS, B   C, FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 1917  $1.00 PER YEAR  NEW 'WAR LOAN  OF THE DOMINI  People  With Savings Can  Help Materially in Win-  nine: the War  ?������  The   Dominion   of   Canada   war  loan,,- launched   last  Monday,  and  which is being  offered   for  popular  subscription until  March   23.   will  undoubtedly meet with as  splend d  a   reception   as  the  former  loans.  This   is  an opportunity   for those  who   have   saved   and   husbanded  their resources to do a very   impor  tant part in winning the war.    Canada has been blessed with the   ma  terial conditions for storing  up  national wealth.  There has been nothing to interrupt the harvests of  the  land, there has been unusual industrial activity, there   has been an ex  cess of exports over imports   marking the increased  productive power  of the people, which is the basis for  an increas" in national wealth, and  there has been economy in  private)  civic   and national  life.    All these  factors have surely made it  possible  for the money to be forthcoming   to  raise the huge loan of  one'hundred  and fifty million dollars which Finance Minister White has called   for.  The life insurance companies, the  trust companies, and the banks have  applied for large portions of the new  war loan.    But there is  a -limit   to  what the fiduciary and financial corporations can invest, no mBtter how  large their   surplus  funds.    This is  especially true of  the banks, which  must keep a large amount of   ready  cash on hand to   meet emergencies.  But there is no reason   that individ  uals should not. take part in notional  effort to the extent of their savings.  The war-Joan certificates  will be accepted as collateral by banks at any  time as equal to gold, and unlike an  investment, say in a mortgage,   can  thus be used to obtain ready money  in an emergency.  But apart from any consideration  of convenience, those who have profited by war work, the supplying of  munitions or war materials, the high  price of foodstuffs, or by the higher  wage-earning power of the times,  have a national duty to perform in  assisting in financing the war, or  Canada's part in that effort. As the  Rt. Hon. A. J. Balfour has declared,  unless those wbo stay at home are  prepared to assist in the finances of  the country, it is in vain that our  soldiers sacrifices themselves in the  trenches; it is in vain that the Meet  of the mother country blockades the  enemy and protects the empire's  commerce; it is in vain that men  toil at a thousand and one tasks to  keep the fighting strength of the  empire up to the efficiency test.  time he appeared he was informed  by a majestic English Hanky in gold  lace that there was "rahly no chynge  in his excellency's condition���������quite  nothing to report," After about six  wear^ rounds between his office ������uid  the embassy, the reporter became  suspicious of the monotony of the  butler's reply, and said he'd just sit  down and wait untii there was some  change,  "But, rahly, sir," remonstrated  the .flunky, "there'll be nothing  further to report. His excellency  died two hours ago."  GRANBY EMPLOYEES  ttlVE GENEROUSLY  The results of the Granby mine  patriotic subscriptions at Phoenix  for the past year have been announced. The total amounted to  323,776.67, the chief subscriptions  being as follows:  C. M. Campbell, S500; J. J. Strut  zel, 3120;.J. A.. McLaughlin, S120;  C D. Martin, S120;.D. G. Stafford,  S120; George, $120; George Hewson,  8120: P. B. Freeland, SI20; F. E  Nelson, S10S; H. F. Tilton, S60; J.  G. Wrean, S60; A.

McDonald, 71.25; 380  other, employees average S5-1-.89  each, S21',244.17; total,   $23,776 t>S.  The total does not include' any of  the town subscriptions, which  amounted to a considerable sum.  .  The -Woman's Patriotic society  also raised 82516. This sum meant  that S50 per week had. to be found  by various means, and considering  the limited number of /women in a  mining town, it will be seen that  the members of the society,.were  kept pretty busy.  The" citizens of Phoenix expect  this year to raise over $30,000 tor  patriotic purposes.  Local Ladies' Hookey. Team  Acquire That Title by Defeating Rossland  served, games enjoyed  and   a  pleasant evening was spent.  very  Was Merely Dead  Died While Eating Breakfast  While eating his breakfast last  Monday morning .at the Province  hotel, Gus Torlen, aged* about 72  years, who has been employed in  Geo. E. Massie's;tailor shop during  the past six years, died suddenly  of heart failure.- The "funeral was  held on Tuesday afternoon, the remains being interred in Evergreen  cemetery.  Deceased was a native of Sweden,  and possessed a varied and interesting history. His parents immigrating to Minnesota, when he was of  tender years, the entire family, with  the exception of himself and a sis-  tor, was massacred' in one of the  Sioux raids. The two survivors  saved their lives by hiding in a  clump of bushes. It is not known  here if this sister survives him, and  if she does, where she lives. In later  years, while in San Francisco, he  was shanghaied and made an involuntary trip to the Orient before  the mast.  By winning from Rossland 'by  a score of 2 goals to 1 last Monday  night the Grand Forks ladies'  hockey team became champions of  the Kootenay, having previously  wrested that honor from the Boundary league. The Rossland Daily  Miner gives the following account of the game:  The Grand Forks ladies' hockey  team proved themselves the be3t  players in British Columbia when  they defeated the Rossland septet  last night with a two to one score.  The game was one of the fastest  ldaies' games ever played on Rossland ice, both teams being very  evenly matched. Grand Forks, however, played better combination than  our team, which made them victorious.  Things went pretty lively the first  period, neither side being able to  pass the other's defense. Good com-  bination.plays were broke up.neither  side cou'd score* at close quarters.  After fourteen minutes' play, Mrs  Newitt shot from centre ice, scoring  Rossland?s first and only goal. Just  before the end of the Period, Gwen  nie Mcllwaine made a nice rush and  scored for Grand Forks. The period  ended with the score a tie.  The second period was whenGrand  Forks did their good work, scoring  another goal. From the face oft* the  rubber went to the Rossland end,  and iffter three minutes' play Emma Needham scored* another for  Grand Forks. Grand Forks now  being in the lead, played a defense  and made it impossible for Rossland  to score any more. The game end  ed with Grand Forks in the lead,  the score being 2 1..  The tfams lined upas follows:  Rossland.      Pois'ion.   Grind Forks  E. Blackman....Goal .G. Spinks  E. Stevens..... Poiul..O.Frankovitch  Mrs. A Newitt..C.Puiut......M. Mann  G.

After th^ dauce refreshments were served and the  guests voted the Rossland ladies'  hockey team royal enteitainers.  Constable Stewart, of Nelson,,arrived in the city on Tuesnay and arrested J. Jones', charged with  passing forged cheques in Nelson,  on a warrant issued by the police  magistrate of Nelson. Magistrate  Cochrane returned the prisoner to  Nelson on the* same warrant.  In this city Jones cashed a $20  bogus cheque at the : Yale hotel.  Jones claimed Duluth, Minn., as  his home town. Wbils here he went  by the name of C. Coleman.  Saturday last Angus McDougall  received a telegram from the militia  department, stating thet his brother  James" had been mounded in the  'head and left arm and that he had  been admitted to an hospital.  From letters received in this city  from England, it is learned that  Bert Ileid has joined the flying  corps and that '"Tack" Cook is in  the hospital suffering from rheuma  tism.  "Mickey" McKay, who has played  hockey with the Vancouver team  this winter, returned to the city on  Sunday.  Shortly after 1 o'clock yesterday  fire broke out in Jas Hardy's house,  on Winnipeg avenue, and before it  was extinguished the building was,  badly damageoValtbnugh the brigade  made an unusually quick run. The  extent of the loss caused by the  blaze is not yet known. The house  .was occupied by Mr Mackenzie, of  the smelier force.

Mayor  Acres and all the aldermen with the  exception of Aid. McCallum were  present.  A letter from the Y. M. C.A.,  asking for a grant, was ordered filed.  A letter from Mr. Page.of Cascade,  asked for the refund of 810 which  he had paid for a burial lot in Ever-  Greeu cemetery. The lot not had  not been used and had reverted to  the city.    The request was granted.  The past month's accumulation  of bills were ordered to be paid.  The chairman of the board of  works.reported that the bourd would  be ready to commence work on the  Yale bridge in a week or two. He  recommended that' a draft of an  agreement between the city and Allen & Norris for the^supply of lumber required by the city during the  year at $14.50 per thousand ba  drawn up. and that ihd city clerk'  be authorized to Bign it. The recommendation was adopted.  The chairman of the health and  relief reported that his committee  had had a conference with Dr. Kingston in reference to charges of city  patients in accordance with the recommendation of the city auditor. The matter, he said, was at  present held in abeyance until word  regarding the law an this subject is  received from the coast.  On motion of Aid. Harkness and  Sheads, the council adopted a resolution* donating the use of vacant  city lots for garden purposes free of  charge to anyone who wishes to take  advantage of this offer.  Aid. Schnitler gave notice that at  the next regular meeting  he  would  ask leave to introduce a  bylaw providing for the sale of   electric power .  for heating and cooking purposes.

The hour for the Russian people to  rule has struck.  The disaffection "of a single Liberal on the  government's railway policy in the provincial  house is not an event that calls for extended  comment, although the Conservative press is  making the most out of a matter of small  moment. The incident simply proves the  non-existence of a political machine in -Victoria at present. It also has a- tendency to  show that Liberals do their thinking individually instead of in groups. That is one reason why they are Liberals.  China has severed diplomatic relations with  Germany. "When you see a u^tn who hasn't  a friend'in the world," remarks an exchange,  "there is something rotten in Denmark." It  is the same with  nations.

The letter sets out  the difficulties   in  connection  with  the granting of so   wide  a   request,  but offers   suggestions   to meet the  case  aud   lays down the conditions  upon which applications for. assist  ance would be considered. .  The pamphlet deals with the general subject of production from the  patriotic as well as from the com  mercial standpoint, quoting Sir  Thomas White's . exhortation:  "Work harder,'save more, ia a good  motto for war time " It also points  the way for the teacher and the pupil in the school to gauge the responsibility that rests equally on  their shoulders in strengthening the  great war arm of the nation. It is  planned to hold exhibitions of pro  ducts in connection with the "Patriotism and Production" campaign  in the schools and calls for the assistance of all local organizations to  held in the general stimulation of  interest among the boys and girls  in this vital question.  Tha pamphlet may be  had from  the education department.

They   will have  road   foremen -for  each section.    Instead of a road su-  perintet dent for each   constituency,  the scheme will mean a   road   engi  neer for   three or   four, or  possibly  more, ridings.

Even telephone men of long experience arc  surprised at the greater voice distinctness when  speaking directly into the telephone. When  you speak directly into the telephone, a lower  tone of voice can be used, and your friend can  hear easily.  Moreover, when you speak lower the actual  tone qualities of your voice are transmitted.  When you speak loudly, you unconsciously  adopt an unnatural tone of voice, with the result that much of that, intimacy that should be  associated with face-to-face conversation is  lost.  A close position to the telephone means  easy talking and easy hearing.  BRITISH COLUMBIA  TELEPHONE COMPANY, LTD. THE   SUN..   GRAND    FORKS,    B.
