Darclen that would have been placed  upon municipalities would  provoke  financial calamity in many cases"  There are general arguments  against the 'wisdom of the resolution.  There is a phase, however.which reports have it has escaped the majority of. returned soldiers and the  general public. It is the inequality  'that such a proposal would create  were it to become operative. Premier  Oliver illustrated the case of the  returned soldier . who might  chance to possess a dwelling  ( Continued on Page 3.)  in Gase of Need  Returned   soldiers  and   their dependents in   British  Columbia  will  learn with considerable interest that  the provincial  government  has decided to extend the scope and operation of  the returned  soldiers'aid  commission so far as to comprehend  the needs  of   those   eligible   beneficiaries whose tax arrears may  be  threatening to  separate  them  from  their property by the ordinary process   of  distress.    While  there has  been no definite provision of a stipulated or set character of assistance,  the commission   has  performed  an  excellent work in an unostentatious  manner, and   many  returned   men  have been aided during  the stage of  waiting for gratuity or other allowances from the   federal department.  This   new   and   specific develop*  inent, however, has  been  more   or  less ' occasioned ��������� by.  the discussion  which took place in Uhe  legislature  recently in connection with a resolution sponsored by J. H. Havvthorn-  thwaite, Socialist member for  New-  castle, which sought to  place  upon  the government the onus for perpet  uating   the  obligation of many re  turned soldiers whoare  in   arrears  with their municipal  taxes.    To  be  .precise, the terms of  the  resolution (  actually   did"   condemn the government for workicg a  hardship   upon  those   veterans    so   circumstanced.  Likewise its   design   was   directed  upon   a   specific line of  action and  called upon the government  to  exempt from taxation all  property  of  returned men assessed under and up  to a value of ������2000 for the period of  the war, and  to rebate those  taxes  that had been paid  within the same  period.  Whiie this suggestion on the part  of   the   Newcastle   member   would  naturally appeal to many   returned  men so plaeed as to coins   within its  meaning, it was obvious at  the outset  that   the   intent    of   the   suggestion was totally out of  harmony  with the ability of the legislature  to  acquiesca. In the first place, and as  pointed out by the premier   during  the discussion   which snsued,  tbe  resolution   in   its  entirety   bristled  'u.tb inequalities. And in the second  place the power of exemption or   rebate  in   respect of   municipal taxes  does not rest with   the  government  at all.

The  property consists of twelve acres of  excellent farming iand on the Kettle  river, about one and one half miles  southeast of tbe city, and includes  frame dwelling, stables, chicken  houses, etc. The price paid was  $2500. The sale was made through  tbe real estate office of S. T. Hull.  A deal was made on Wednesday  whereby Dr. Kingston and D.mald  McCallum acquired Chas.

LIBERAL M  THURSDAY- NIGHT  DO NOT NEGLECT THE BEES  Endorsed North Fork Association's Resolution  and Discussed Many  Subjects of Importance  [experimental farms note ]  The present high price of sugar  reminds us that Canada produces  natural sugars that are still more  valuable than the product of the re  fineries. Fortunate are those who  not only possess bees at this time,  but understand them and have sup  plied their needs.  The early springs months are the  most critical period of the year in  the life of the bee colony. At the  same time, the pressure of spring  work of coltivating, seeding, etc., on  every fine day on the farm too often  leaves the bees forgotten.  There are several reasons why the  bees are more liable to beneglected  than other things on ihe farm. Hidden away in their hives they do not  require daily feeding like other  animals. Such attention as they  need is in the nature of a surgical  operation, and the opening of the  hive is not always anticipated with  pleasure on account of the risk of  receiving stings. Yet, on many  farms, the bees have been found to  pay better than anything else, considering the small amount of capital  and labor expended.  The principal danger to avoid at  this time of year is starvatijc If  each colony went into the winter  strong, with . a good fertile queen  and a plentiful supply of stores in  the combs, the first examination of  the hive had belter be deferred until the weather is warm and nectar  is being gathered. But if the stores  are running short, a cake of bee  candy or a comb of honey laid over  the combs if the bees are still in the  cellar, or, if spring is opening, a  superficial examination of the hives |  on the first favorable day, combs  of  The local Liberal association held  a meeting Thursday night in the  Odd Fellows' building. There was a  large attendance and action was  taken on several important matters  affecting the district.  A resolution urging the government to commence the construction  of a road from Cascade to Rossland,  which was surveyed last summer,  thereby completeing the trunk road  from Princeton to Nelson.  Matters affecting the charter of  the Kettle Valley line up the North  Folk came before the meeting to be  dealt with, as did also the inadequate service of ths government  telephone line to Franklin.  The government is being asked to  give better service to those who desire to settle on crown lands by establishing inGrand Forks a land  record office, or sub-oflice, where  the homesteader, preemptor or purchaser of crown lands can get all  necessary information.  Several new members joined the  association, and it is intended to  hold reguler meetings in the future.  HEAVY FINE FOR  AN INFRACTION OF  THE BRANDS ACT  On Friday, the 12th inat, Gabor  Francis was brought before Neil McCallum, S.M., in the provincial pu  lice court, charged with having in  his possession cattle which he had  unlawfully impressed with a brand,  said brand not having been registered under tbe Brand act. The  evidence went to show that George  Stanfieid, of the provincial police,  -aw these cattle grazing about a mile  from town. On returning to Grand  Forks, Francis was questioned regarding this cattle braud. He admitted that this was his brand. The  branding law was produced in court.

C.  OFFICE:     COTA'MIUA AV'KNUK AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, MARCH 19..  1920  According, to a Vancouver daily, plans  are  now being formulated by the Vancouver board  of  trade for  visiting the ' Ulterior of British  Columbia by its members.    The paper further  states that tentative arrangements have  been  made to leave the coast city about the middle  of July, and among the places  to   be  visited  will probably be  Grand  Forks.'   This' would  seem to be an opportune time for our citizens  to take steps to reorganize our local board of  trade, in order to be in a position to entertain  tlie visitors when   they  come.    The, occasion  will furnish a splendid opportunity for advertising our city and  valley  among commercial  men who are always on the lookout for  new  fields  of industry.'  Grand  Forks   has many  valuable assets and advantages over the 'ordinary   interior, town,   which   aie  either overlooked by the. residents   or  lay   dorment because they have not the   necessary   capital  to  develop   them,   and it  is   only, by interesting  outsiders and outside capital that we can 'ev.br  hope to  have  latent resources developed to  the extent they deserve  to   be.    This  is the  work our board of trade  should   be actively  engaged in, and if a thoroughly live   organization were maintained, it could render valuable  assistance to our city  council in solving many  ^problems of civic government.

G.  -J  Talking:  When the board of trade is reorganized it  should be on different lines from some of the  former boards we have had in this citv. A  number of them were notoriously partial to  some businesr men, and quire as notoriously  hostile to others. Thnt is the reason they  finally went to pieces. A live, impartial board  of trade is an asset to any community, and we  are decidedly of the opinion that no time  should be lost in reorganizing one here. It i-  also our belief that more interest would Ia;  taken in the organization, and that the chances  of its permanency would be increased, if't  were made exclusive enough so that membership in it would carry with it a certain degree of honor.  .Like most all other countries,   Australia   is  having difficulty in getting good domestic ser  vice. In order to establish a  standard, representatives of the Housewives' association, the  Y. W. C. A., the Auxiliary Household  corps,  the   Women   Workers'  association,   the  Na  tional   Economy   league   and   other   similar  bodies met recently in Sydney.   They decided  that   henceforth   domestic   servants   shall be|  known as household assistants, and that fifty  six bonis and one pound sterling shall   be the'  standard week and wage.  But what is helping1  the housekeepers more than anything  else   is1  the   rapidly   growing   imports  of   Amu  UTj.ELLOi MARS !  Yes, this is the earth���������  "'   The Sun Man of Grand Forks speaking.  "Oh, you haven't any religious sects on Mars?  You simply believe in the Golden Rule, and  get along very well? Well, lam sorry to have  to inform you that if came to this planet you'd  be classed as barbarians. Here we have so  many1 religions that none of them is believed.  But, since you have mentioned the Golden  Rule, I must teHyou abour a sect which believed in a Golden Age. It sprang into prominence some-years ago. -The doctrine is beautiful.and cheerful, and if eventually it is found  to be feasible it -will be the means of saving a  great deal of future suffering.  "Here is a picture of this belief painted by  an army officer: 'It requires but a casual glance at Adam's posterity���������for we are all,  of the blood .of Adam���������to see What we have  lost through .the fail of father Adam. Our  creator declares that he will restore to the  willing and obedient all that they have lost,  when his kingdom is established on earth.  We will not at this time refer to the many evidences that the Lord's kingdom is very near,  just at the door. We see from Zechariah 18;8,  9 and other Scriptures, that there are. millions  now living who will nevervdie, but will fall into  line as subjects of the kingdom. It has been  our privilege and pleasure to assist in showing the wonderful plan of our God towards the  human race, to many soldiers on the Border  and to somfe of the wounded at the hospitals,  be means of the photo-drama of Creation. We  find quite a number interested at present.  Only think what the interest will be when  men with one leg or one arm begin to awaken  in the morning with two legs and two arms;  when the wheeled chair men will have no more  use for that form of transportation! Won't  there be times at all the great hospitals in this  country and throughout the world? Nor will  these great blessings be confined to soldiers,  but will surely extend to all the human race,  both dead and the living. The headlines ofthe  daily papers be overtaxed in recording only a  few of those wonderful things.'  "That is the most cheerful religion, my dear,  Mars, that we have at the present on this  planet. The believers iu this doctrine have  succeeded in purging the Bible of hell, and this  fact has had a tendency to make it very popular.  TXMBERLAKE SELLS  HIS  JEWELRY STORE  F.

Under the Haw  thornthwaite proposal this man, prob  ably quite well off, would be entitled  to a refund of all taxes paid by him  during the whole period of the war.  Moreover, in the case of the soldier  or the dependent in possession of a  house assessed at $2500, upon which  three or four years' ta<es might be in  arrrears, with a possible mortgage  encumbrance of three fourths its  value,would get no benefit whatsoever  under the Hawthornthwaite plan of  relief, although this man or dependent  might be very much more in need of  assistance than tho man whose five  years' taxes would be remitted.
