 Kettle Valley Orchardist  c A i  18TH YEAR���������No   271  GRAND FORKS   B.C., FRIDAY,   MAY 2, 1919  is  "Tell me what you Know is true: (tl  f)Q   P]JR   YEAR  I can guess as well as you." <D1.UU   x J^xv-    XJja"  All the members of the city council except Mayor Harkness were  present at the regular meeting on  Monday evening. Aid. Miller occupied the chair.  -D.'A;. McKinnon and E. C Henniger addressed the council, and  asked that 50 per cent of the Grand  Forks Canning company's taxes be  rebated in the form of a graut. The  total amount of the taxes was' over  $400. Of this amo'unt the company  could only pay one-half,as the plant  had not been a going concern since  the building was erected.. It was  pointed out that at the time of incorporation the company, as "a going  concern, was granted exemption  from taxation for ten years. This  concession was, of course, nullified  when the company failed to operate  its plant, but as the building had  undoubtedly been the means of  bringing to this city the creamery,  which is of considerable benefit to  the community, the representatives  of the company entertained thehope  that the council could make this  grant without establishing any bad  precedent. They said that there was  a probability of the plant being  taken over by the Dominion Can-  ners'-Associatibn this year. The matter was referred to the finance com  mittee.  Bob DeMares, n returned   soldier,  who went overseas at the commence  ment  of   the   war,   addressed   the  council.    He asked that the council  endeavor to obtain for him   the return   of  his propertv, situated near  the Great Northern   station,   which  vvas sold for taxes in   1914.   Mr. De  mares thought  that  the  provincial  act   protecting   soldiers'   property,  which was later passed by the legislature, should have bpen   made  re~  trogressive    The  council   promised  to  do what  it  could in the matter,  and a committee consisting of  Aid.  Hull und Miller was appointed to interview the purchaser,D. McCallum,  arid to endeavor to  induce  him relinquish his rights to the  property.  The street sprinkling question and  a  couple   of   charity    cases    were  also discussed.  Aid. Hull gave notice that at the  next meeting he would ask leave to  introduce a bylaw making a grant  to the Grand Forks Canning company.  i.ngs stamps, which are government'  bonds and just as secure as Victory  bonds are. Victory bonds started  hundreds of thousands of people  saving, who should continue the  practice, which is made easy through  war savings and thrift stamps.  Sun Strokes  By The ^Modernist  The reconstruction and readjustment boards of the country appear  to be under the impression that if  they can bring back the conditions  that existed prior to the war they will  have complied with the wishes of the  people. This is a mistake. It is safe  to say that not one person in a hundred wants a return of pre-war conditions. It is certain that this state  of affairs would not satisfy the returned soidier. In the society of  the future tne faker, the grafter, the  profiteerer and the fake promoter  must be elimated. Every person  should be engaged in some useful  occupation. He who will not work  should not eat. Everybody who  works should nave plenty-of whole-  somefood and comfortable housing.  A system of state insurance should  protect every person against loss by  fire; the family against loss, by  death or illness, of the breadwinner,  and every worker against poverty  resulting through unemployment.  This is the only kind of reconstructed society that will satisfy this and  coming generations. It will require  statesmen to bring this condition  about. No small politicians will be  able to do it. Until that time arrives we will have Bolshevikists and  Bolsbevikism.  VICTORY BOND INTEREST PAID MAY 1  May day saw ������1S,000,000 paid in  interest in the Dominion to the  holders of Victory bonds issued in  191S. This was by far the iargest  single interest payment ever made  in Canada. Incidentally, it is only  one of many, for Candians will draw  over 870,000,000 in war bonds'interest this year.  The question arises, how much of  this money will be saved? Will the  over one million holders of Victory  bonds in the Dominion become systematic savers, thus helping themselves and the country, or will they  discontinue saving?  A large portion of these 618,000,-  000 should be invested in  war sav  in   the   dispatches   from   Grand  Forks  in   various   provincial dailies  concerning the   unseemly   antics   of  some of the Doukhobors in tbi6 dis  trict  no  distinction   appears to  be  made between the Carson community and the colony of fanatics five or  six miles up the North  Fork.    The  latter are fanatics, pure and  simple.  They  have  broken  away from the  Carson community, and no brother  ly love exists between the  two  factions. They wear   long hair, do  not  believe in working the animals, and  would just as soon appear in public  with the fig leaf improperly  adjusted, or without it altogether, as they  would   in  a  silk  gown and a new  Easter  bonnet.    They   need   a few  lessons from the law  officers.    The  Douks  under the  control of  Peter  Vertgin have,  we   believe,   learned  to be more modest.  LE  RDER IN COUNCIL  Ottawa, May I.���������From tomorrow  and-until further orders immigration  of Doukhobors, Hutterites and Men-  nonites is prohibited. An order-in-  council to this effect was signed by  the governor-general,-this evening. It  was passed under the provisions of the  existing immigration act, which gives  authority to this end.   .  The order-in-council recites that  "owing to conditions prevailing as a  result of the war, a widespread feeling  exists throughout the Dominion, and  more particularly in western Canada,  that steps should be taken to prevent  the entry into Canada of all persons  who may be regarded as undesirable  because of their peculiar customs,  habits, modes of living and methods  of holding property, they are not  likely to become readily assimilated or  to assume the duties and responsibilities of Canadian citizenship within a  reasonable time."  The order adds that numerous representations have been   received   that  Doukhobors, Hutteries   and Mennon  ites are of this class and character.  JS ews of the City  ^he  ine 100th anniversary of the  Oddfellows' society and the 19th an  niversary of Gateway Lodge No. 45,  I.O.O.F., Grand Forks, was celebrated by a special divine evening  service Sunday night in the Baptist  church.

The firemen have begun to  arrange the program for their 24th  of May celebration.  Mrs. CM. Kingston and daughter Margaret left on Saturday for a  visit to Vancouver.  Regular shipments of coke began  to arrive at the Granby smelter last  week from the Crow's Nest.  A fifty-foot flag pole will be reised  mounted police barracks od Winnipeg avenue.  Mr. and Mrs. Jeff .Davis visited  Greenwood last Saturday.  Sergt. and Mrs. R. Campbell went-  up to Greenwood on Saturday. Mr.  Campbell made the trip for the purpose of interviewing returned soldiers  with the object of forming a Great  War Veterans' association in that  town. He was assured that as soon as  all the men return a-branch of the  organization will be started in Greenwood.  A cave, in on a huge scale has oc~  curred at the Granby mine in Phoenix, and the rails of both the Canadian Pacific and the Great Northern railways are suspended nearly a  hundred feet above the cavity. No  great damage has been done, with  the exception of interfering with  ore shipments.  The Penticton Herald says that  Richard L. Miles, a negro merchant  of Carmi, is held there on a charge of  selling liquor, the charge against him  having been laid as a result of the  sudden death last Friday morning of  two Indians who had been imbibing  of a concootiou supposed to be .wood  alcohol : or methylated spirits. The  charge laid against Miles is merely a  holding ono, and whether it will-.be  changed to one of much more serious  character will depend largely ou what  result is gleaned from an examination  of the stomachs of the dead men, and  from the finding of a coroner's jury.  The two Indians were Kalamalka  Paul aud Alec Paul, living at Shing e  creek. They were well known in the  district, as the family has been living  there for a long time.  'CICIE WEEK  31010  J. B. Dunlop invented the pneumatic tire in 1SS8, and it was in  1894 that the Dunlop company  commenced the manufacture of the  pneumatic bicycle tiro in Canada, so  that for a quarter of a century Canada has been vitally interested in  this industry. That event is probably the most interesting in the whole  history of tire events which followed, because the success of th'e mo-  torcycle and automobile have been  largely based on the success of the  pneumatic tire, which in their case,  of course, was at first merely an en ���������  largement of the Dunlop ^bicycle  tire. The success of the bicycle in  its present form hinges on the introduction of the pneumatic tire  principle, which, as noted previously, undoubtedly has been ono of  the most beneficial events that man's  gedius has brought about. This  statement ought to clear up a point  that does not seem to be appreciated  by as many people as it might be:  that the automobile itself, as far as  the tire is concerned, is not basic,  but is an evolution of tbe pneumatic  tire idea, which was brand new with  the bicycle. Therefore hi dealing  with bicycliug we are getting to the  bottums of conditions and principles that brought in the use of tbe  pneumatic tire, and which by making riding comfortable immediately,  made it uuivereoally popular  RETURNED SOLIDERS  FOR FARM WORK  TIIE WEATHER  The following is the minimum  and maximum temperature for each  day during the past week, as recorded by the government thermometer on E.

C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, MAY 2, 1019  Our'local contemporary last week accused  The Sun of favoring the Doukhobors. This is  a falsehood. Of the hundreds of citizens, who  read the statement we made two weeks on  the theatric and sensational agitation not one  of them interpreted our remarks in this light.  The statement has since been so generally  favorably commented upon, that we are convinced that it is endorsed by a vast majority  of those who understand plain English in. this  district.    Had   we seen fit, however, to take  implements, livestock and,food for a certain  period, besides entering into an argeement  with them exempting them from performing  certain duties as citizens. These are their  rights. The people are , industrious and they  have acquired and developed '.considerable  property. Justice consists'of seeing that they  .are'compensated for this should they decide  to leave the country. It may be difficult to  convince Bolsheviks and anarchists, who are  t'oo lazy to work and who believe in gaining  wealth by confiscation, that this is justice.  Nevertheless it is justice. If under these conditions they want to leave, their going would  be welcome news to us. But we do not want  to see the district disgraced by mob  violence.  (T  '-"X  Joyes i  re-  9..

We are not among those, who believe that  the Doukhobors can never be made to assume  the full responsibilities, of Canadian citizenship. That they have not done so already is  largely the fault of the government. We may  cite the case of the state of Utah. A few years  ago the Mormons had control of the state  govern mentancl every city government.in the  state. They, were absolutely under the control  of the Mormon church. .'But the. Washington  The agitation which has just come to an inglorious end was as ill advised and as clumsily  carried out as was the robbing of a Doukho-  bor grave a few years iago. That; episode  caused the provincial government (then Conservative) to appoint a royal commission, at  an enormous enpense,to investigate the Doukh-  obor question. The commission reported in  favor of the Doukhobors. Some of the men  who took part in the body snatching incident  were also identified with the late agitation.  against  polygamy, and today-Utah is one of the best  states in the American union and the Mor  mons are highly respected citizens. Allthatis  required to convert the Doukhobors into full-  fledged citizens in a generatiov or two is to  "enforce the school and vital statistics laws.  It seems to us that the agitators started at the  wrong end. Instead of making an attempt to  scare the Doukhobors, they should have ascertained how many returned solidiers wanted  land and then laid their case before the proper authorities and found out what the government was willing to do. This could have been  done without bringing any unpleasant attention to the community. But this course would  have "brought no cheap notoriety to the leader.  Therefore the district had to be sacrificed, the  evil magnified a hundredfold and, with the aid  of the Nelson News, which is ever on the alert  for disagreeable incideuts concerning Grand  Forks, heralded to the world.  The billingsgate directed against the editor of this paper by the writer in our contem:  porary we deem beneath our notice. We discussed a public question in a perfectly legitimate manner, and-, being unable to controvert  our argument, the Gazette resorted to scurrility, indicating a faulty bringing up of the  wri ter o f t he squi b. We are w i 11 i ng to 1 ea ve  this matter to the people. : We have been in  Grand Forks for eighteen year. During that  time there have been about a dozen editors  and so-called editors in control in the Gazette  office. We expect to be-here when the man  who at present directs its zig-zag course  reaches his limit. We are still young enough  to take care of ourselves, and we are not too  proud to work.  ran  ones  transfer.'C<  DAVIS & HANSEN, Proprietors  City Baggage and General Transfer  e  oo  or  Office at R.

"' BRITISH COLUMBIA  TELEPHONE COMPANY,  rees  The bringing of the returned soldiers into  this matter is, we believe, mere camouflage  for a greed of personal notoriety. Of the  men who have returned to the city so far we  have not heard one express a desire of going  on the land. On the contrary, many of them  have expressed strong resentment at being  used as sops by the so-called reconstruction  board. As far as The Sun is concerned, it does  does not have to proclaim from the housetops  its friendliness to the soldier. We are fully  convinced that man who wore, or i* wearing,  khaki knows the true attitude of paper toward  him.  Trees are a vital factor in the life of nations  and in the life of men. They are one of our  greatest sources of our wealth, but. they are  more than that. Without them most of our  rivers would run dry. Without them many of  our fertile fields would become arid wastes.  Without them much ofthe beauty and charm  of life would disappear. It is hard to think of  a real home without trees. He who plants a  tree today, under whose shade men aud women  may rest and children play a hundred years  from now, is a benefactor of mankind.  Yon can not think of trees without also  thinking of birds.  Tho birds of the air have been always deep  objects of interest to mankind. Their beauty  delighted the eye, their songs have cheered the  hearts of countless generations of men.  It is only recontly, however,   that we have  come to know that they are an  indispensable  factor in the economy of the fields.    Without!  them   the   multitudinous insects  of summer  time would   endanger   every  waving  field of  gram.  It is all very well for a man who may have  aspired to lead a mob���������from the rear���������to say  that the Doukhobors nave no rights and are  not entitled to justice. Facts tell a different  story. The government gave them $4.sf) pis-  head for corning to Canada; gave; each family  100 acres of land, b'!iM;M-;  materia',   farminu-  Thft trees and the birds!

APPOVES OF" ORE  TESTING PLANT FOR  British Columbia  In reply a telegram and a letter  sent by Fred A. Starkey, of Nelson,  to Hon. Martin Burrell, minister of  mines, relative to the establishing of  an ore testing plant In British Columbia, the following letter has been  recived by Mr  Starkey:  "I am in receipt of your letter of  April 7, in which you confirm . the  telegram to me in reference to the  'location of an ore testing plant  which I am hopeful of being able to  place in British Columbia.  "I can only repeat what I said in  my former letter of March   29,   that  such    a plant,    which would   be   a  branch of our ore-testing laboratories  in Ottawa, would deal as far as  possible with the various* problems connected   with   the   treatment  of   all  minerals in order to stimulate   pros  peering   and   the   development   of  those   extensive    mineral     regions  which have had but little   develop  ment work done on them, as well as  taking up tbe^question of the  treat:  ment of various kinds  of  ores,   the  value of which it might be  difficult  to aaceitain by those who could not  afford to ship so far as   is  involved  in sending to Ottawa.   In any  case,  it will necessarily be some time  before   we can  get anything  actually  constructed and we hope   to   make  an examination of some of the  later  ore-testing laboratories in   the v United States, and shall give the  fullest  consideration   to  the.general situation in British ColurabiB,   including  that of the Kootenays, before  a  de  cision is reached."  ���������-.
