C, FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 1917  $1.00 PER YEAR  WJLL F0STE1  Seed Selection and Disinfection Demonstrations Will  be Held by Department  ~ Hon.   John   Oliver,   minister   of  - agriculture, in an interview at   Victoria," states   that   his   department  will give special attention to the potato industry. As a  first  step, tbe  departmental   organization   for  the  purpose is   changed   somewhat, so  that all of the potato   work will    be  under the direction of the   horticultural branch of. the  department  of  - agriculture.    The minister proposes  such an   aggressive   and   sustained  campaign as will help towards  placing the industry on  a  proper   footing- '" ,  The   immediate   problem   is   an  -"adequate supply of good seed   potatoes,'as   a   certain   shortage exists,  '.'���������'    undoubtedly. " It  is due, partly  to  ^ne fact that growers have for years  past   been 'inclined  to  neglect the  ordinary   precaution   of    planting  good, clean   seed  on a  clean land,  with the result that there  was more  .���������.  disease in the 1916 crop  than'   ever  . / before, while the yield- per acre   is  '-   below the'most   profitable   average.  Tbe trouble is accentuated   because  .. the export demand, for which   only  the very cleanest   potatoes   are   ac  cepted, took a big share of   the 1915  crop,-and a still larger part   of   that  of las"t season, including much   that  ��������� '���������- should   have   been   kept  for seed.  The shortage is still more acute because many growers are now convinced that scnall.and scabby seed  does,not pay, and they want to get  new and clean stock.  The minister-has;encouraged-! the  export trade, because exports mean  money; and money coming in spells  '", prosperity.;   British Columbia potatoes have made good���������in Australia,  ...in the prairies .and Ontario  and, by  the  hundreds of carloads,   in   the  . United States.    This trade can continue   only   wiih   clean   and  high  ��������� grade potatoes, which in the "past  season were only about 20 per   cent  ��������� ��������� of the crop.  It is Mr. Oliver's opinion, based  on the statistics of  the potato   sup-  '���������ply still remaining, that the good  stock still available   should be kept  f, in the province for seed, or that, in  other words, the holders of high  grade stock should ^give our own  province first call on it. To facilitate this, he offers the services of the  ' department to put sellers and buy  ers in touch with each other. In  writing the department, sellers  should state variety, qualiy, size,  quantity and price. Buyers should  similarly state their requirements.  All correspondence should be addressed: Horticultural Branch, Department of Agriculture, Victoria.  To get potato growers started  right on seed selection and disinfec  tion, practical   demonstrations   will  select good seed potatoes, and howjjj  to start seed plots for . f uturp years.  The department, -it is expected,  will also formulate a"eystem of producing clean, strong, healthy seed  potatoes . of high grade varieties,  which will be sold under government certificate. The advantages of  such a system, and the steps in  growing the ' class of seed potato  that will be entitled to the government blue ribbon, will be explained  at the demonstrations above mentioned, the. dates of which will be  announced by the department  shortly.  n  -CZARNICHOLA  TYPEWRFTERS  HI THE FR  C. H, Knight Says Machine  Sound- Like the Granny  Drilling Machines  c.ulty is being experienced in im- j  Dressing upon the men the fact that  all must sign the cards. He believes  that inthe last analysis it will be  found that the record for registration in British Columbia will be  equal, if not better than that ofthe  other provinces of the Dominion.  DEAL FOR VOIGT MINE  NOT CONSUMMATED  Appeals to Nati������n to Obey  the  People's  Representatives  Petkoghad, March 19. ��������� Czar  Nicholas, who has abdicated, has  issued' the following manifesto: "To  all our faithtul subjects: It is known  in these days of a- great struggle  against a foreign enemy who have  been endeavoring for three years to  enslave our country, that' it ^has  pleased God to send Russia another  painful trial. InternaL.trouble has  threatened to fatally affect Russia's  C. H. Knight, a Phoeuix old-  timer, who is now at the front, has  sent the following interesting letter  to George Elkins and the Knights  of Pythias of Phoenix:  "Just a few lines to let you know  I am alive and kicking. It is im-  possiole to write much,as the things  I" would like to write about 1 can  not, as we are pledged to secrecy. I  could write a very interesting letter  if I could.descr be all that is going  on around me. However, 1 must  reserve it all until after .the. war.  John Lindsay and myself are together.and in the same section. We  are in the third field ambulance of  a division. There are three sections,  A, B and C, and as luck would have  it, Jack and I are in the same sec  tion.  "Mackay was sent to another division. We are now in a rest camp  just behind the lines. We staud and  watch the artillery every night, and  believe me, the ground you stand on  shakes One would think.one was  in PhoeHixJlistening to the blasts in  the   glory   hole, and   the   machine  destinies. Her heroic army, the hap  piness of our people, the  whole  fu-  guns sound like a  Granby   drilling  ture of our beloved   fatherland   de    machine.    They   call   them   type  mand that the war be  conducted to  writers,   and   it   truly   sounds like  a victorious end.    The cruel enemy I them -in the distance.  is making his last efforts.    The moment is near when   our  army, with  the   aid   of  the   allies, will   finally  overthrow the enemy. - In these decisive days we realize what we  owe  tr/the people in support of  a  close  union   and   effective-   organization.  All forces must unite for the realization of rapid victory.    Therefore, in  agreement with the  duraa,' we  recognize it is for   the  country's  good  that we abdicate the throne and lay  down supreme power.   Not  wishing  io separate ourselves from   our   beloved son, we bequeath the heritage  to another, to Grand Duke Michael,  with blessings for the future throne.  We   call-  all   faithful  sons of   the  fatherland to fulfill   a sacred   patriotic'duty of obeying the czar at  this  painful   moment, to   aid   him,   together with the nation's representatives, and to  conduct  the   Russian  state to prosperity and glory.    May  God help Russia."  "We are iu, a small village. Al,  kinds of houses are levelled to the  ground and hardly a pane of glass  is left in the houses that are left  standing.'  "There is a- Y. M. C. A. tent near  here. /Over the centre is written,  'Boys, whenever you feel downhearted, remember Jonah came out  all right.' In-another . place", 'What  about that letter home?' As I bad  already written to the wife,I thought  of you and the brothers.  "The utxt letter I write will prob  ably be written in a dugout. John  Lindsay sends his regards. With  best regards to youself and my  brother Knights of Pythias,, who  were so kind to me before I left." '.'  The Similkameen Star, published  at Princeton, says regarding the  Voigt mine deal reported to have  been consummated some time ago:  "The Star has received several  enquiries from outside parties regarding the deal for the Voigt mining property near Princeton." The  coast ancl Spokane papers published  long stories tinder flaring headlines  telling 'of the big $3,000,000 deal,  with an additional eight or nine  millions to be spent in building a  railway and on development.- These  reports said the deal had been actually consummated. The fact Is the  deal has not yet been closed, nor is  it likely to be for some time. A  three million dollar deal is a big  deal, and there are several matters  iuconnection with this one yec to'  be adjusted. However, there are  hopeful indications that the deal  will-eventually be made."

Alfred   Jackson, a  returned  soldier who left  Grand   Forks with  the  second   contingent,   arrived  in  the city8for a short visit on   Sunday  from Esquimau, where he has been  receiving    medical    treatment.    A  crowd of citizens gathered at the depot to welcome him   home,   but  as  his brother Otto lives jn   the   Wesl  end, he got off the train at.the C, P.  R, shops, and the people at the sta  -tion were disappointed   in   not getting an opportunity to shake hands  with the hero who has done  his bit  for the empire.    He vvas shot in the  shoulder   by   an   explosive   bullet,  and his right arm is at preseut paralyzed, although he says that  at   in  tervals there is" a slight sense of feel-,  ing in it.    He will return to Esqui-  malt for further* treatment.  London, March 21.���������President  Wilson's proclamation convening  congress in special session and long  dispatches from Washington and  New York dealing-with the outlook  and describing the warlike preparations of the United States fill conspicuous places in the news columns  of the morning papers today. The  Daily Telegraph, however, alone  comments on the situation.  "The first week of April," says  this newspaper, "will see the recognition by the United States-that a  state of war with Germany exists.  It is a spectacle that may well engage the attention of Europe, for it  is the turning point in. the world's  history, as well as in the history of  the United States. N  "Those in Germany who made up  their minds that nothing was to be  feared from American' intervention  are likely to be rudely undeceived  in a short time."    Referring to Germany's scheme to  embroil the United States with  Mexico and Japan, the Daily Telegraph thinks it likely that this will  bring the people of the United  States into the war-with hardly less  unanimity than was shown by allied  Europe.  "Germany, indeed, should bitterly curse the day when that puerile  piece of   treachery was   hatched, in  some typical Prussian  the Daily Telpgraph.  brain,'' says  A shooting match was held between the public school cadets and  zhe ex cadets on Saturday.

Tne  result included there paragraphs:  Lloyd George is a very-brave soldier. He is king of parliament.  They are trying to poison him.  He has won many battles. He has  thousands of soldiers.  King George is king of-, England,  but Lloyd George is king for the  war. He i3 a Walshman but speaks  English.  He has lots of soldiers and he tells  them what to do so as to win the  war. He only lets the people have  4 lb. of bread.  Lloyd George is a good king and  the Germans have tried to poison  him.  OBSERVATIONS  The world's newest monarch ia  the king of Hedjaz, who rules over  certain holy cities and 100,000  square miles of Arabian desert. As  he has a war with Turkey on his  hands, he looks like an up to-date  king.

C  OFl'ICK:    U0L.U.M WA AVKNUli AND LAKE STRKET.  FRIDAY, MARCH 2:3, 1017  No  good  purpose can be  served-by printing,  surmises.    The people want  only tlie  facts. [  If the paper has them; it should -print  them,  instead  of - threatening' to make further disclosures   in   the   future..   That is'the tactics  adopted, by  the servant' when "he holds his,,  hand  behind   his back and  waits  for a tip.  Respectable papers have never adopted   this  method of conducting their business.  Those assured that the war will continue  into 1018 should not fail to do something to  increase the food supply. A failure of.crops  in any portion of the world may mean actual  suffering for lack of food. Everybody can  help in the campaign for greater production.  Every pound of produce grown on a city lot  releases a corresponding amount raised by'the  big "farmer for. shipment to the armies in  Europe. ..  The Grand.Foyks Oppositionist announces  that it intends to make some- revelations regarding the provincial government's method  of reorganizing the forestry service. What  does'it expect to gain by this advance bulletin of its future intentions? Surely, it does  not believe that its influence is sufficiently potent to change the imvermnent's course.  Men whose wages remain static may. be  forgiven if they sigh occasionally for the good  old times when a dollar would buv  a  dollar's  worth of anything.  The general food shortage is not bringing everywhere the increased acreage that is  so desirable this year. In Australia, for example, the area sown to wheat is 11,084,874  acres, as compared with 12,388,376 acres in  1016. The Australian wheat yield rnns from  ten to sixteen bushels to the acre. It is earnestly hoped that the wheat acreage will be  substantially increased in Canada this year.  Our suggestion of yesterday in regard to the  method by which vacant land around the city  of Montreal might  be made  productive receives added point from the fact that today the  director of national service for the city of Montreal is calling upon the owners of vacant land  or lots within or around the city of Montreal  to lend them to his board during the  coming  summer for the. purpose of putting  them  under oultivation.    The  plan, he  announces, is  to  place small  lots  at  the disposal of wage  earners and others who will agree to cultivate  them and produce vegetables and other truck  gardening  products.   They will -be  supplied  with seed and fertilizers.    The best and most  careful producers will'receive prizes as an incentive.    On tha other hand the  large  rracts  of land  and large   lots   offered  under   this  plan will be placed under the management of  churches and  other  organized   bodies  which  will undertake the cultivation of the same under specific  rules.   The  output of this class  will be held in reserve for  relief purposes.���������  Montreal Herald.

Under such  circumstances, the true import of the message  is lost;  The telephone is built for actual conversation, but to realize-the full benefit the lips  must be close-to the mouthpiece.
