C, FRIDAY, MAY 10, 1918  $1.00 PER YEAR  Farmers of District Think  They Should Work for  Soldiers'  Wages  Toe conference of delegates from  the Farmers' institutes in1 District  No. 9, held in the court house in-  this on Wednesday afternoon, was  well attended and-much important  business was transacted. A few of  the twelve im-titutes in the district  were not represented by delegates,  and substitutes were chosen from  the local institute. C. 0. Heaven,  of Grand. Forks', was apppoioted  chairman, and Mr. Whiting.of Rock  Creek, secretary.  On motion of Messrs. Whiting  and Endersby, 0. C. Heaven of this  city was appointed as member of  the advisory board.  The following resolutions were  offered by. the various institutes of  the district. They were all adopted  except where otherwise noted:  ' From Grand Forks���������That this  conference strongly urge upon the  food controller the great need of the  establishment in this province of  one or more potato flour mills for  tne'productioYi'of potato llour.which  could be used extensively as a suu-  stitute for cereal flour, thereby releasing a considerable quantity of  cereals for our allies, and also establishing a staple market for the surplus potatoes produced in this prov  ince.  From Nakusp���������That the government be uiged to offer a cash bonus  to bona iide settlers for every acre of  bush land cleared and brought under cultivation.  From Arrow Park���������That the government be asked to refuse to grant  the herd law in certain districts,  such as their own, where it is detrimental to a great many. This resolution was endorsed, tentatively, but  Mr. Heaven was instructed to write  to their institute for further inforaja-  lon.  From Fire Valley���������That the deputy minister be requested to have  the noxious weed act enforced in this  district. That in past years the weed  inspectors have not done so, and in  the opiuiou of this meeting tbey  have shown partiality or are incompetent, as there are tracts of privately owned laud in this district, un-  cleared and unoccupied, overrun  with the Canadian thistle, etc.,  making it impossible for the  neigh  lion,      which'    was     unanimously  adopted:  Whereas, The federal government  have passed a military act conscripting all British subjects to serve in  wha lever capacity they see fit;  And Whereas, The ; Doukhobors  made a compact with the former  ! government releasing them from all  combatant service, and owing to the  above condition all our young- able-  bodied men have.been taken away  from our farms and necessary indus  fries for the successful carrying; on  of the war, and the Doukhobors and  ather aliens are taking advantage of  the scarcit'o of labor and are retard-;  ing the work of the country by holding out for exorbitant wages; therefore be it %      - ���������'   ^   ���������'.--:'_���������  Resolved, That this mepting request the provincial government to  urge upon the federal government  the necessity of immediately conscripting all Doukhobors of military  age and aliens to serve in such ca  pacity as they deem fit, and to set  wages for the different industries,  the government to take all wages  over-SI.10 a day and board, the  same as our men at the front are receiving.  In the evening a Cabaret entertainment was given in the opera  house under the direction of E F.-  Laves. The program, which was  similar to that rendered at the entertainments given last week, was  much enjoyed by the delegates and  large audience of citizens present.  Those who took part in the program  gave an excellent performance.  Yesterday morning the delegates  were taken for an auto ride through  the valley.  Heavy Fines and Confiscation for Non-Compliance with Order  I can not take up arms again, I can  do lots of jobs that would let some  one else go to the front. I'd-be  more contented doing something  than laying around the hospital  waiting for my arm to get strong.  I can not offer myself to the government or to my country, but I am  willing to go back andfdo my little  'bit' again tomorrow."  The local food conservation committee yesterday received the following telegram from tha British  Columbia committee of the Canada  food:board at Victoria:  "Give utmost publicity to need of  consumers returning to dealers surplus flour and" sugar before May  15th, according to food board's  orders recently announced in newspapers. /Otherwise' liable to heavy  tines and confiscation to the crown.

'Willing'to'/Do;  ''���������'.'.:-'His---Bif-Twice  ^Makes Appeal  to Householders  Ottawa, May -3. ��������� Henry 13.  Thomson, chairman of the Canada  food board, in a statement issued  ttday, urged that as a patriotic duty  the regulations of the food board  relative to public eating places and  those now governing the manufacture of biscuits, cakes, ice cream,  etc., should be observed voluntarily  by householders. It is necessary  that this should be done, Mr. Thomson stated, if Canada were to do her  utmost to send overseas those supplies which were so greatly needed.  Mr. Thomson said that some mis  understanding had occurred as to  the confectionery products which  it is now illegal to manufacture for  sale. The list is as follows: Products  known as fresh or puff pastry;  doughnuts or crullers; biscuits or  cakes known as Scotch bread or  cakes;fancy almond macarooms or  like products containing more than  .50 per cent of  cane  sugar;   marsh-  Excerpts from a letter received by  Nathan Taylor, of this city, from  his son, Sergt. P. E. Taylor, who is  now in an hos-pitat in England:  "I am getting along as well as con  be expected. I now have my arm  oil the splints but still in.a full-  sliog, and it may be months before  my elbow is strung enough to hold  my arm by itself. The doctors can  not start to massage it for some  weeks, as it is too weak to tamper  with. It's going to be a very hIow  job^ but we'must all hope for the  best.  "The news from France still looks  very dark, but there is no doubt  as  to the result of the final blow.   Ger  many   is   surprising   the world, but  she   has   got    to     fall    sooner   or  later; but before she does her troops  may all but reach Calais,   but   they  will   never   land   there   as   long as  there   is   British   blood   on   French  soil.    They'll light to the   last  man  before the Huns advance   ten   miles  farther; and when the   time  comes,  Fritz  will   go  back  faster  than he  came  ahead.    Gen.   Foch, the new  chief in command,   is   keeping   the  Canadians   for  the   knockout blow,  and before you receive this  letter  I  am sure Canada will again show the  world   the   mettle  she is made of.

J. H. Mitchell, in charge of  the Spokane offica of the British  and Canadian recruiting mission.  The figures came from Maj.-Gen.  Newburn, Canadian minister of  militia.  Of the total enlistment of 355,510  the distribution is as follows: Native Canadians, 147,505;'English,  121,571; Scotch, 37,406; French-  Canadians, 16,2S6; Irish, 12,557;  Welsh,. 3,647; American, 10,000,  other British, 6,448.  The casualty list is as follows,  the feature being the low percentage  of deaths from disease, less than  two-thirds of one per cent: Killed  in action, 25,912; died of wounds,  S,671; died of disease, 1,956; wounded, 106,1S5; prisoners, 2,736; presumed to have died, 3,93S; missing, 790.  Controlling Potato  Diseases From the Start  Potatoes are plentiful this spring.  Procure your seed from a field  which produced a good, heavy crop  the previous year. The smooth appearance of the "seed alone is no  guarantee of a heavy crop. Disinfect  the potatoes before cutting the seed.  Soak them for three hours in a barrel containing either of the following solutions:  Corrosive sublimate: 2 oz. in 25  gallons of water. (Note: Fatal poison to man and beast.)  Formalin: 1 pint in 25 gallons of  water.  In cutting for seed, throw out all  potatoes showing rot or brown spots,  or rings near the stem end and in  the flesh.  Cut the seed immediately before  planting. The longer vou keep them  out, the smaller the yield.  Webster, A  L'ota)  .S570.25  The orator of the street corner  told the audience of the blessedness  of humanity, and while he was  speaking two little dogs strayed into  the middle of the crowd. "Now,"  said the orator, "here we have an  object lesson thrust right into our  hands." He turned to a grubby  youth. "My liitle man, if these two  animals were to fight, what would  you do?" An impressive silence pet-  tied upon the crowd while the unwashed youth studied the problem.  "Well, guv-nor," he said at last, "I  think I'd put a quarter on the black  'un."  America No Longer  Regarded as a Joke  The German newspapers which last  year ridiculed America's entry into  the war now have begun gradually to inform the German public  concerning the danger of present  and future American intervention  on the western front.  For instance, the Zeitunn of Constance says:  "We must hurry to obtain a solid  victory by arms before the full  American forces arrive."  The Vienna newspapers are taking  the same line as those in   Germany.  The federal reserve board's annual board, issued at Washington  last Friday, warned all against impending radical readjustment" of all  business as a result of America's  growing patriotism, and says the  war's progress, whether favoring the  States or Germany, will create feverish conditions in the commercial  world.

OFITCE:    COLUMBIA AVKNUH ATsM) LAKE ST11EKT.  FRIDAY, MAY 10, 1918  The threatened resumption of the German  oftbnsive on the western front has not materialized during the past week. Time favors the  allies, and the longer the drive is delayed, the  stronger their lines will become. If it is  put off for any considerable length of- time,  Fritz will receive the surprise of his life when  lie does make another attempt to march into  Paris.  That is what Germany calls making war; but  it is making war, not on the enemies of Germany, but on a helpless neutral too small to  defend its rights. A bully can not act contrary .to his nature���������not at least until he has  been well thrashed.  <r  Much credit is clue to the. local ladies and  gentlemen . who were charge of the big "Y"  drive for the splendid result attained in this  city. The members proved themselves able  campaigners, and the latest report appears to  indicate that the sum realized is close to the  objective.- The people evidently realized that  the money being raised is for a worthy cause,  and it is safe to say that no one gave less than  he could, afford, and that every person who  could possibly do so contributed  something.  The appointment of E.' D. Barrow," M.P.P.  for Chilliwack, as minister of agriculture in  the provincial government, .has created a rather  peculiar political situation in Mr. Barrow's  district. The candidate nominated to oppose  the new minister in the forthcoming by-election styles himself "Unionist." Of course any  man has a right to run against Mr. Barrow,  but the right to the title "Unionist" is not  quite so apparent. Surely the Liberals have  not  entered  into  a secret compact with the|"of 0U1. old earth itself \s shivering at" his wau-  "Women's Sister Service" is a term that has  just come into use for the very excellent reason   that   women   are   connected   in so many  ways with the British service. First they were'  attached to the army, and the people became  familiar with the "W.A.A.C.'s"   Then womeu  were taken on as part of the navy, and soon  every one was familiar with the "Wrens." The  last  move  opens  the Royal -Flying Corps  to  women. Lady Gertrude Crawford is the director of the women's branch of the  air service,  and she brings to her work practical qualifications obtained along many lines  of   training.  For one thing, she is a master turner���������one of  the very few women who can qualify   in  tin's  work. Proof of her title   rests,   among   other  things, on the fact that she actually carved an  egg on a lathe.  This feat is rarely accomplished by either men or women. Technical skill of  the highest has come to   Lady  Gertrude also  from having worked in a munition factory from  the very beginning of that work   for   women.  Thousands  of  women  mechanicians will find  in Lady Gertrude a thoroughly capable supervisor. The world at large and patriotic women  especially will watch bhe: development of this  new line of women's service with interest.  ==^  The bright  rays of The  Sun at this  season of the year is very trying  on weak eyes or eyes that have not  normal vision.

COMMENT ON MANY TOPICS  During the week Grand Forks people have  had the pleasure of seeing two entertainments  of unusual merit given by local talent.

The subjects are necessarily similar to those seen last year in the  great Canadian exhibition which was shown in  Canada. The English pictures are done in  colors, and this has the'effect of emphasizing  the perspective and making thev scenes very  artistic. The pictures that a! tract more than  the usual amount of attention is the advance  of the tanks into action. It is said that this is  the most realistic presentation of war that has  ever been accomplished in illustration. It is  also the largest photograph ever produced.  The pictures of troops entering Bagdad, the  dramatic entry of General Allenby into Jerusalem are thrilling both on account of the historic significance and because of skillful arn'stic  handling. An Egyptian labor battalion at  work in France and several other glimpses of  the East and West in partnership in this great  struggle  are both   beautiful  and compelling.  Sure!

Contractor Gets   Grading  Started on Branch  Railway  There will be no engineering   difficulties  in   connection   with    the  b Hiding of the branch of the Kettle  Valley   railway   from   Princeton  to  C jpper mountain, says  the   Penlic-  .toi Herald.    The grade is naturally  a heavy one, and there will be quite  a "number   of   trestles and big fills.  The first contract calls for ths building of the line to the  flotation   mill  site, a distance of about   four   miles  as the crow Hies, but some five  and  a half miles by.the. c raiitous route  necessary to get   the   proper   grade.  .The   branch   will   start from about  half a mile west of the railway, sta  lion, crossing the Similkameen river  and turning almost right angles,will  graduhlly ascend to the fiist   bench,  reaching there at   a   point close   to  where the   CoL-p rr mountain w;igon  lo-ici comes up trom the flat or bench  on which the Princeton   colliery   is  situated.    The     proposed     railway  then makes another turn in   the  di  . rection of the  mill site.    The   first  h-ilt   of   the road will go through a  beautiful   rolling   country,    covered  with buncbgrass and practically free  from timber.  The steam shovel was started  Monday, and grading outfits are being assigned to  their station   work  concentrator will be erected under  the direct supervision of Van H  Smith, who has had a great deal of  experience it: mill building and with  the flotation process in Montana,  Utah other western states.   ���������  The railway construction and tbe  building of the mill are having the  effect of stimulating business in  Princeton. Many strangers are coming in and locating. Tbe hotels and  rooming houses arp filled, and  dwellings for rent are very scarce.  Princeton in consequence will take  another jump ahead,-and some are  sufficiently optimistic to predict that  the place will double in population  within the next two years.  of  mature while the warm continues,  thus ensuring a thorough ripening  and curing of the bulbs. To hasten  the development of bu bs, especially  in places where the season is short,  young plants are set out instead of  the seed being planted. Onion sets  will ensure good bulbs also where  the warm season is short. Root  maggots often do much harm in the  onion plantation. Watering the rows  every four or five days with hellebore  and water in the proportion of two  ounces of hellebore and one gallon  of water while the insects are most  troublesome will control them to a  considerable extent. *  Except in the warmest parts of  Canada melons require considerable  care to ensure the ripening of many  of them. The warm season is too  short. To overcome this, melons  should be started in hotbeds and  kept under glass until there are  warm nights in June or even July.  Melons require heat below and heat  above, hence the necessity of keeping the soil warm by having a  good bed ol manure. They will not  succeed in cold soil if the air above  ground is warm. Melons require a  plentiful supply of moisture in the  soil to give the best results. Much  watering, however, should be delayed until the ground is sufficiently  warmed up so that heavy watering  will not cool it too much;  Brussels sprouts do not develop  well in hot, dry-weather, and, unless  the antumn is a long one without  severe frost, they are not satisfac-.  tory. It i3 important, therefore, to  plant varieties that will be most  likely to develop where the season  is short, and the dwarf ones have  been found the most satisfactory.  Short-Stories  along the route. A. McCulloch, of  Peuticton, is the chief engineer in  charge of the work, and Engineer  is the local man on the job. P- J.  Selvis is in direct charge of the construction work under \Y\ P. Tierney  & Son, the contractors. Just at present there aie yome 200 men working, and this force will be increased  as the work develops. There does  not seem to be any great difficulty  in procuring labor, and the class of  men coming in are of better than  tbe average type.  The main object in rushing the  first part of the work is to enable  the Canada Copper corporation to  nave, machinery lauded at the 30U0-  ion daily capacity mill no^v in course  of Miction. The sawmill installed  near the mill site will be turning  out lumber next week, but a large  amount of the better quality "of timber and lumber required will be  shipped  in   from   the   coast,    'i'ne  Cauliflower, although one of the  most delicious vegetables, is one of  the hardest to grow in many parts  of Canoda." It damps off easily in  the hotbed, is often badly affected  by root maggot and frequently does  not head well. In raising plants,  transplant them from the seed row,  pot or flat to a distance of about two  inches apart each way as soon as  possible after the seed germinates.  This permits a freer circulation of  air between the plants, and makes  the danger of damping off much less.  The root maggots are bad nearly  every year in many places in Caua-  da and often prevent practically all  the plants from heading. Eggs are  laid on the ground near the plant,  which soon hatch into maggots  which eat into the roots and thus  cut off the supply of sap. To prevent injury from these, a tar felt  disc should be placed around each  plant close to the ground at the  time of planting. It will be too late  otherwise. If the first planting of  cauliflower is a failure, a second  planting should be made, as cauliflowers are much easier to grow in  late than in earlier summer, as the  maggots are not so troublesome at  that time and there is usually an  abundant supply of moisture. If the  soil in which cauliflowers are grow  ing is dry, they will not head well  as they need lots of moisture and  must be kept growing without a  check from start to finish.  The onion is another rather difficult vegitable to grow. It requires  a long season of growth and very  often the seed is sown too late, and  if   the   summer is cool and wet the  Major     Frederick    Palmer,   the  head of the military press bureau in  Paris, was visited in his office in the  Rue St p.. Aune the other day by   an  ex reporter of the  old   school     The  ex reporter said   from   his cloud of  tobacco smoke:   "Palmer, I want to  do my���������hie���������bit.    I   want   to be in  at the finish of the Hun.    I've  got  an alcoholic sore   throat, a -tobacco  heart,   and   a   hardened   liver.    It  would   be   difficult   for  me,   lam  afraid, to give  up  my   soft   habits  aud   live   in   the  cold   mud of the  trenches. Still, Palmer, I am  determined to do my bit.   There's surely  some billet I could fill  with   honor.  Well, what���������hie���������is it?"  "Geoige,"  said Major Palmer, "the  only   suggestion I can make is   that  you  go  to tbe front as a tank."  Solomon J. Solomon, the London,  artist, has announced his intention  of living -in Palestine, now that  England has won the country from  the Turks. Mr. Solomon is rich and  famous now, but he was poor a few-  years ago, and admission to the  lioyal Academy had not yet given  him the right to add the coveted  "It. A " to bis name. At an academy  exhibiton in those days Mr. Solomon's picture was so excellent that  it cast all those about it in the  shade.
