 *JV.,t  w<  s v*-V.I.I / /'/'/ /  Kettle Valley Orchardist  *<, ���������  THIRTEENTH YEAR���������No. 29  GRAND FORKS, B. C., FRIDAY, MAY 15, 1914  $1.00 PER YEAR  Court of Kevision Will Be  -Held on June 18 in the  City Hall  The mayor and all the aldermen  were present at the regular meeting  of the city council, held in the  council chambers on Monday evening.  A communication from '.legistrar  Dunbar, of Kam loops, stated that  the agreement between the city'of  Grand Forks' and the Kettle Valley  Railway company had been regis  ��������� tered.    .  Malinger Rolston, of the British  Columbia Telephone company! informed the council that the crossing  of city and telephone wires at the  ���������corner of Government avenue and  King-street'is in a dangerous condition. -Referred to the chairman of  the water and light committee.  A  petition    was   received    from  Robert Gaw,   John Donaldson,   W.  J. Cook,    et al., for  a  four-foot cement sidewalk on Ida avenue, from  Cecil street to   Winnipeg  avenue, a  distance   of" about-324 feet.- The  petitioners stated that they  wished  the sidewalk placed about  four feet  from the property line, so  that   the  space   between ' it   and   the lawns  could  be   boulevarded.    After discussion, the locating the   walk   was  left to the board of works,  and that  body was also empowered to  act  in  having it constructed.  The   chairman   of   the   board of  works reported that the grading  of  the Winnipeg avenue hill had prac  tically   been   completed;   that   the  shed   for  vehicles  and  tools at the  city hall wa. finished; that the tower  on the fire hall had been  extended;  that   the   work  of replanking  the  Fourth   street   bridge   was in progress, and that the work of opening  up the street from Observation avenue  to  the  Great Northern station  had   been   started,   but the board  had not yet secured the right of way  from Observation avenue to   Water  street   from  the townsite company.  He suggested that  the members  of  the  board  wait on the manager of  the company in a body the following day.    If the lots required could  not   be   obtained   at  a  reasonable  price, he favored  extending   Main  street to Cambridge avenue,   thence  following that thoroughfare  to Water street,  Most of the members of the council expressed a preference for the  latter route, and it was decided to  adopt it, provided the Carter family  could not  prevail  on  the townsite  matter was referred to the chairman  of the board of works.  The chairman of the finance committee recommended the payment  of the city payroll and the month's-  accumulation of accounts, -which  jvas concurred in by the council. ���������  '.' Aid. Henniger -thought that the  $5 license fee which accompanied  the tenders for replanking .the  Fourth street-bridge should be" returned to the unsuccessful bidders.  On motion of Aid. Henniger and  McCallum, the council decided to  return these men their money. It  was understood, however, that ,in  future no tenders submitted by  parties who did not hold a contractor's ' licen would be considered.  The chairman of the water and  light committee,reported that some  repairs were needed at the substation. The chairman was given  power to'aut. *  W. J. Mc-Ihtyre, through the  chairman ' of thn water aud light  committee,    mad,}- a,ppli<_������ui.ui   for  Wants a Special Grant of  $10,000 fo^hWorth  1  Fork Mac  city water in his house in "Little  Eholt." The request was granted,  provided he would pay for the installation of the same, the money  thus expended to be rebated to him  in water rates  Mr.    Davies,   leader  of  the  city  hand, renewed his  request, made at  a previous meeting,  for  a grant   of  $250 in aid of  the band.    Some of  the aldermen did-not appear  to   be  infatuatedwith.the idea of spending  the people's money for this purpose,  but   on   motion of  Aid. McCallum  and   Donaldson,   the  request   was  granted.    In return for  the   grant,  Mr. levies promised to give a series  of twelve public concerts at a bandstand to be erected on Miner avenue.  The   accounts of   Dr    Kingston  for city patients in   the Cottage hospital were referred to the   chairman  of the  health  and relief committee  for verification.  The'mayor said reports of unsanitary plumbing in the city had corn-  to him, and he was of the opinion  that all work at present being in  this line should be inspected.  On motion of Aid. Henniger, the  chairman of the board of works was  authorized to have the   new section  of the tower on the fire hall painted.  John A. Hutton, as assessor, submitted tbe assessment roll  for 1914  of   the   city   of  Crand  Forks and  Grand Forks school  district, and it  was accepted subject to the court of  revision.    On   motion,   it  was decided to hold the court   of   revision  on tbe 18tb day of June, at 2 o'clock  in the afternoon.    The   mayor   appointed Aid. Manly, Henniger, Bon-  thron   and    Bickerton   to  act with  himself as members of tbe court.  The nippting of the, Grand   Forks  board of trade on Wednesday   evening was well   attended,    and   some  important business  was  transacted.  President DeCew occupied the chair.  A communication from   the   Nel  son board of trade asked   the   board  to endorse a resolution requesting a  government   grunt   of $25,000 for a  thorough demonstration of the   pro-  c-ss of the Johnston Electric Smelting   Corporation,   and   for a second  grant of a similar sum if the proce.^  company to at once donate a right  of way free of charge from Observation avenue to Water street.  Aid. Bonthron suggested that the  board of works consult the property  owners on First street, between  Miller & Gardner's store and P.  Burns' market, in regard to building   a retaining  wall, so that a ce-  proves a success AJj|Jj|k short di.  cussion, the board 'oecided u> en  dorse the resolutionr**3'*;?'!'  Some   peison   had   pent, a newspaper clipping showing  the marked-  decrease   in   free   miners'    licensjpJ-  taken  out   in   recent   years.    '1    ?  members of the board   were   umCSS,  mous  in   the   opinion    that   prospectors ought to be encouraged, and  a committee was appointed to  draft;  a resolution to the  government asking  that government  assay  offices  be established and that quantitative  assays be made free for  prospectors.  The   committee1   on   the    North  Fork   wagon   road reported  that  a  force of workmen was now  engaged  in    repairing   it.     The committee  recommended that tbe ooard ask the  government for  a  special   grant  of  $10,000  to   put   the   road in first  class   condition   for   heavy   traffic  The board concurred in  the  recommendation.  A resoluion was adopted instructing the secretary to write letters to  the different Kettle Valley line  officials, urging them to make a pit  at railhead on the North Fork extension in order to assist shippers of  ore by facilitating loading.  Tbe president reported that he  and the secretary had signed a letter  requesting the government to rebuild the North Fork bridge recently carried out by high water.  The secretary was instructed to  write to all members in arrears with  their dues, and to request them to  pay the same.  A. O. Frache addressed the board  in reference to a. flower show  which the floriculturists of the community were anxious to hold in the  city this summer. He asked the  board to give to the project its  moral support by endorsing it,  which was done. The selection of  a committee to co-operate with Mr.  Frache.was left to that gentleman.  It is evidently  Mr. Frache's  inten  se board of county  commissioners  for the construction of  a power line  from the Canadian line to  Republic  by Messrs. McCain and   Shields, of  Spokane.    Mr. McCain   said   Wednesday   that   if   the   contract   was  granted   next   month   work on the  ine   would     begin     immediately.  There has, not as yet been  any   formal organization of   a  company, to  construct   and   operate   the power  line, but as soon   as a  franchise   is  granted a company   will be   organized.  Messrs. McCain and  Shields have  negotiated a contract with the  Wast  Kootenay Power & Light company  for an indefinite horsepower to be delivered   in   Republic.      Their  proposed   power   line    will   be  about  thirty-five miles in length, and   will  follow the   Republic-Danville  road.  It is estimated that the cost   of   the  line will-approximate S75.000.    As  sociated   with Messrs.   McCain   and  Shields are T. W. McGowan  and P.  r  Sweeney,   of   Spokane,    both . of  whom are experienced   in   the  con  struction and  operation   of   power  lines.  The franchise for a power line  given the North Washington Power  & Reduction company almost two  years ago has been revoked by the  ounty commissioners on the  grounds that the comgany has not  fulfilled its part of the agreement.  In obtaining the contract the North  Washington Power & Reduction  company agreed to construct and  have in maintenance a power line  from Republic to the boundary line  at Danville within a specified time.  This the company failed to do, and  the commissioners revoked the contract and annulled the franchise.  .25  An Extra Number of Specials to Take the Place  of Gash Prizes  The regular monthly meeting���������  which had been postponed from the  previous Friday���������-of (tb'e Grand  Forks Poultry association was held  in the secretary's office last Friday  evening.: The gathering was large  and representative.-  The   most    important    business  transacted was that of   deciding   on  November 25 and 26 as the date for  the next midwinter   poultry   show.  A new feature will be   tried   at   the  coming  show.      Inasmuch   as   the  entry fee has been   fixed  at   SI.00,  exhibitors can put in as many birds  as they wish���������no limit.    There will  be no cash prizes other than specials,  but there will be an extra   number  of these.  Robert Wilson has been asked to  come and act as judge. This gentleman was the show superintendent  at the provincial exhibition in December last.  The next meeting of the association will be held on JMday, June 5.  S OF ihe OT  Frank McPharlane is  putting  all  the  teams  that  he  can procure on  his 1000-ton   ore   hauling  contract  from   the   Union   mine   to Lynch  creek.    G.  Guise, who   also has a  1000-ton  contract   from   the same  property, sent   two   of   his   heavy  wagons up the river  last  Saturday.  The wagon  road is   said   to be in  fairly good condition   now, and  ten  men are employed in ..putting it  in  first-class shape.  A meeting for the purpose of dis  cussing the question of holding a  flower show in the city this summer will be held in the board of  trade rooms next Monday evening  at 7.30 o'clock. The details of the  show will be explained by the promoters ol the enterprise. A cordial  invitation is extended to every one  interested in the project to attend  the meeting.  j 7, the   Granby smelter in this  city  until  it  develops  into a local im-  . _u *_��������� vnuvijuiy   iTxi.

Record Fruit Crops  "The present promises to  be  the  greatest year in the  history   of   the  fruit industry in  the  province, and  it is going to be one  of  great;   prosperity   to   the    growers/'  declares  Fruit Pests Inspector Thomas   Cunningham.     "The necessity  for  the  second clause," he adds, "lies in the  fact that i n some  previous  bumper  years the hugeness of the fruit   crop  did   not   mean  big  returns for the  growers..   Sometimes it meant  loss  owing to glutted markets, which did  not pay a   return  for  the cost  of  picking and packing and  marketing  the crop.  "I have never yet seen such evidence of a big fruit crop since I have  been in the province," says the inspector. "It is not only one fruit or  district, but the reports from every  district are to the effect that all the  fruits promise to give a record crop  this year.  As  a   resul; of the marketing or  ganizationa   brought     into     being  last year there is now no  danger  of  a glutting of tbe market.    Previous  ly   tbe  fruit   had   all been shipped  to two or three points,   where   congestion occurred, leaving large  mar  kets  untouched.     "For  instance,"  says Mr. Cunningham, "in  order to  arrange   for   marketing  I went   to  Lethbridge, Alta., last  year.    Lethbridge is a fine city and serves a fine  territory in the distribution of fruit.  -    I uu���������>     ii     ucvciups    111  treated  22,756 tons of  ore, 22,392 jpr0vement association  tons of which were from  the      com-j   pany's own properties and 304 tons  of foreign ore.

'home R74 Grand Fokks, B. C  FRIDAY, MAY 15,   1914  The Son congratulates Attorney-General Bowser on his  success in inspiring the people  of British  Columbia with so  deep a reverence for tlie laws  of the land that it has become  unnecessary to enforce them.  Apparently the people arc too  docile to contravene them. At  the last session  of the legislature certain laws were adopted  for the  regulation of the  Doukhobor   colonies   in ��������� this  province.    Up to the present  .time the attorney-general has  not  been  called  upon to put  them in force.    Some of them  may have been violated; but  Victoria is  a   long   distance  from those colonies, and perhaps Mr. Bowser did not hear  of   these  instances.    This  is  probably the true solution  of  the  matter, especially as the  subsidized  government  press  has  evidently   been   given a  hint, to maintain a dignified  silence on the subject. British  Columbia is probably the only  province   in   the    Dominion  where  the people  have such  an exalted regard for the laws.  It is quite likely that the  conference of the mediators  to adjust the trouble between  the United States and Mexico  will prove a failure. The  present indications are that  the Huerta government will  be wiped out of existence long  before the peace envoys reach  Niagara.    '  During the last provincial  campaign  the people ol the  province - were   told  a  great  deal about the desirability _ of  a  "white  British  Columbia":  by Premier McBride and his  cabinet officers.  That was before Sir Richard and his  government had become wholly  enamored     of    the   devious  financing   methods    of Mackenzie and  Mann,   however.  But    the   government's  professed love for a "whiteBritish  Columbia" will soon be put to  the test.    All doubt of the arrival on the coast of this province of the steamer Komagata  Mam,   carrying   a   cargo  of  Hindu  immigrants, has   been  cleared away  by an authentic  dispatch     from    Yokohama,  which  says that the steamer  lelt that port May 2 for Vau-  An eminent- scientist says  the world is drying up. The  people appear to be in the  same deplorable condition���������at  leust they seem to require more  liquid refreshments than they  formerly did.  Perhaps one reason .why  the Tory press of the province  does ��������� not sing ��������� the praises of  the Victoria government as  loudly as it did a year ago is  the emptiness of the public  treasury..  The next governor-general  of Canada is a prince by-birth.  He is also said to be a prince  by natnre. The last, statement will be particularly gratifying to Canadians.  The prospects of a flower  shower in Grand Porks' this  summer seem to be good.  Everything can be said in favor of such an enterprise, and  nothing against it.

PECT1 RULES  Fruit and   Potatotoes  Can  Only Be Imported Under  Certain Conditions  Two notices,' signed by Thomas Cunningham, inspector of fruit-pests, ha\e  just reached the city from Vancouver.  One is addressed to importers, con  signees and shippers of fruit carrying  companies and the public generally,  and states that in consequence of  several outbreaks of codling moth in  fee tion during 1912 and 1913, the  ' suppression of which has cost the government of British Columbia a large  expenditure of cash, in addition to the  danger of the introduction of this very  destructive pest, having been traced  direccly to American infected cars, it  h is been decided as follows:  'That all cars arriving in British  ��������� Columbia, containing either deciduous  or citrus fruit, or other vegetation, if  found to be infected with the larvae.of  the codling moth, 'cydia pomonelia,'  either in the cocoon or pupal stages,  will be immediately closed, sealed and  ordered out of the province, whether  the fruit contained therein may show  infection or not.  "Importers, agents, consignees,carry-  ing companies and other interested  parties are strongly urged to advise  shippers of fruit or other vegetation  that this necessary regulation will be  strictly enforced at all points of entry  in this province, so that shippers south  of the international boundary may  govern themselves accordingly."  The other is a quarantine   notice to  the general public stating that in consequence of quarantine   having   been  established   by   Dominion    order-in  council    against   the   importation of  potatoes grown in the  state of   California, where the potato tuber moth is  ��������� found to be so  widely distributed   as  to constitute a real danger to   British  Columbia, all shipments   of   potatoes  coining   from   any   state or territory  tou".h of the   international   baundary  must be accompanied by   an   affidavit  stating the precise locality where such  potatoes have been  grown, the names  of   the   shippers and   consignees, the  date   of   shipment   and    number  of  packages.  Unless these deiails are complied  with a certificate of inspection will  n it be, is-ued, and without such cer-  t,;li.-;ite. the cust-mi-s ,imi au ho-iti^s  w   I tint .<ci/.ept entry.  The circular points out that these  steps are taken not to embarrass trade  but merely in the interest of protecting the province from a very destructive pest, which threatens the potato  growing industry of the neighboring  states  Mr. Cunningham asks the co-operation of shippers, consignees and carrying   companies   in     enforcing   these  regulations.  EHOLDERS  Isn't He Great  "I believe it will be pretty near the  millenium before they get into office.  (Laughter.) They are divided into  factions. This is not the time to  swap horses, in'crossiug the stream,"  and 1 believe that is the opinion of a  great majority of the people of this  province. When good times have  been restored they can elect the Liberals to once more squander the assets  of the province. (Cheers.)���������Mr.  Bowser at Vancouver.  Now, isn't he the one great and  original Mr. Bowser? Endowed with  a grasp of detail equalled only by his  prototype who went to St. Helena, he  knows, of course, that there never has  been a Liberal government in power  in this province. How then could  Liberals '"again" squander the assets  of the country? Moreover, Mr. Bowser knows that there is neither a Liberal nor Conservative government in  office at the present time. Instead  the McBridite party reigns. Soon, for  a short time, it will be succeeded by  ,the Bowserite party. Between them  and their friends everything in the  province not spiked down has been  corralled. That is why the people of  British Columbia are determined to  kick the buccaneers into oblivion.���������  Victoria Times.  Object Is to Safeguard Interests of B.C.

An effort is being made to organize  a stockholders' alliance among the  shareholders in the British Columbia  Copper company who have not exchanged their stock for certificates of  the Canada Copper Corporation, and  Frank G. Beebe and F. R. Huntington, New York, and Ira Ramus and  Leon N. Salmon, Brooklyn, have  been appointed a committee to perfect  the association.  A circular letter received by local  stockholders last week announces that  the committee is calling upon those  who desire.to become members of the  association for an assessment of 2 cents  the share to create a fund that will  assure putting the alliane on a permanent basis, remittances to be made  to Rogers, Norton & Co., brokers,  45 Exchange place, New York, the  money to be returned unless enough  of the members of the company join  the movement to assure its success.  The purposes of the alliance are to  promote and safeguard the stockholders who have not deserted the British  Columbi-e Copper company for the  Canada Copper Corporation; to unite  the vote of the members on any matters that may come before the stockholders' meetings; to devise ways and  means to properly protect the interests  of the British Columbia stockholders,  aud to demand that they have equal  rights in the distribution of future  earnings of the company with those  who have associated themselves with  the Canada Corporation.  "It will not be the policy of the al  liance to attack or antagonize the administration   or embarrass   it   in any  way in its efforts to advance  the   interests of the company," says the committee.     "On the contrary,   it   is  the  intention    of   the   association   to   cooperate with and support the manage  ment in all its endeavors   to   promote  the    welfare   and    prosperity   of  the  corporation.

JOHN DONALDSON  PHONE 30  Everything to Eat and Wear  Real Estate Investments  and Business Sites  Insurance in  cAll Its Branches  Boundary Trust l&  Investment Co., Ltd.  Established 1901  First Street  The Interior of the Earth  George K, Gilbert has written,and  the United States Geological Survey  has published a paper entitled, "Interpretation of   Anomalies of Gravi  ty," from which The   Sun takes the  following passage: "The inner earth  is the inalienable playground of tbe  imagination.    Once it contained the  forges of blacksmith   gods; or it was  the   birthplace of   our race, or the  home   or   prison   of     di.-eni bodied  spiiits.      Later,   Symines   hollowed  from u   a   vast   h tollable   empire,  concave like the  world   of   Koresh.  Science now claims   exclusive   title,  but holds it chiefly for   speculative  purpo.-ies.; and the. freedom of speculation practically recognizes but two  limitations:   The inner earth is dense,  and   it   is   rigid.    As  to  all other  properties, opinion is untrammeled.  It   is   my   own view that tbe inner  part of the nucleus is not only   hot,  but very hot.    If the law   of   compression by pressure and the   law of  expansion   by   heat,   as we   know  them at the surface,   apply   eqnally  to the nucleus, then the mean   tern  perature of the earth must be  enormous   in   order   to  afford  a mean  density so low as 5.6.  An enormous  temperature   impliss   an   enormous  store of heat."  ���������Our store is the MEN'S  SHOE IM-  POBIU-vI for the city.
