CANADIANIZE THE  DOUKHOBORS  added materially to the world's  knowledge, but have led the way for  the emancipation of their people.  . It is with, all the more pleasure,  therefore,; that the following editorial,recently appearing.in the Winnipeg Free Press, is herewith reproduced, not only as an interesting  evidence of a.changing public opinion, but also as ��������� indicatiye of the  opportunity facing the Grain  Growers' movement to. set the pace  in,a.rational and humane effort to  .Canadianize 7'the.stranger within  our gates."  ";> , .  The Free Press,article is   as   follows:   "Previous to their settlement  in Canada, the history of the Doukhobors is one lorig-.< tale  of  persecution   and   suffering  on  account of  their ..-religious   convictions.      The  character of the people   themselves  and   of   their   principles was   well  known to the Canadian government  at the time that they  came  to  this  country.    They' were   welcomed as  settlers,   granle'd   immunity    from  military service and given   land  for  homesteading in Saskatchewan. Owing  to  their  scruples  as  to taking  the oath of allegiance they were unable to become British   subjects in  the   formal   sense, and as  a  result  they lost in 1907 a-large  proportion  of their lands, which they had cultivated carefully in the face  of  great  difficulties.    The  Doukhobors then  migrated     from.^Saskatchewan   to  British Columbia in large  numbers,  settling on land purchased with   the  knbwledge of the provincial government there and even from it.    Now,  according to apparently well founded  statements, they have been induced  by severe pressure from neighboring  townspeople, amounting   to intimidation, to offer their  lands   to   the  Dominion government for settlement  by returned soldiers.    The Doukhobors came to Canada under well understood conditions' and have   been,  with   few   exceptiods,   law-abiding  citizens, especially when   permitted  to pursue their own ways of  living.  Though they are aliens, they are not  enemy aliens nor have  they  shown  the least sympathy with our opponents iu the war.    On  the   contrary,  they have proved   industrious   and  unoffending members   of the  community and an asset to the country.  Their lands  at Brilliant, B. C, have  been turned   from  sterile,   heavily  wooded valleys into flourishing fruit  farms.   The Dominion  government  would   have no justification for dis  turbing them in   the  possession   of  properties   rendered   valuable   and  productive by hard toil while abun-  ant   unimproved   lauds   remain for  soldier settlement."  CELEBRATION  Firemen's Sports on Victoria Day Attract People From Many Surrounding Towns  The Victoria day celebration under the auspices of the Grand Forks  Volunteer Fire Department proved  as big a success this year as celebrations in former years have been."  There was an immense crowd present, all our neighboring towns contributing large quotas of visitors.  The perfect weather which prevailed  permitted of the program being  carried out without the slightest  deviation. Everybody entered heartily into tbe zest of the sport and had  an enjoyable day's outing. The firemen have reason to. feel proud of  adding successful celebration to the  long list of those held informer  years.

E  DRIVE CANCEL  OWimj to Other Galls on  tlie People for Funds,  Gommittee Decides It  Could Not Be Made a  Success  APPLE VALUBLE  AS A MEDICINE  It may not be generally known  that the apple is valuable as a medicine as well as a food, and that,  therefore, uiore should be grown.  Tbe following is from a medical  journal as to the value oftheappple  as a medicine:  "Chemically    the   apple   is composed   of   vegetable  fibre, albumen,  sujjar,   gum,   chloraphyll,      mallic  acid,    gallic acid, lime,   and   much  water.    Furthermore, the apple coo-  tains a larger   percentage   of   phus  phorus tban any other fruit or vegetable.  Tuis   phosphorus   is admirably adapted for the renewing   of the  e Sdiitialnervous matter, Jeihicin, of  the orain and spinal cord. It is, perhaps   for   the  same   reason, rudeiy  understood,  that   old   Scandinavian  traditions    represent   the  apple  as  the food of thegods, who, when they  felt themselves to be growing feeble  and infirm, resorted to this fruit for  renewing their powers of  mind   and  body; also the acids of the apple are  of   great   use   for men of sedentary  habits, whose livers are sluggish   in  actions, these acids serving to eliminate from the body noxious matters  The committee formed to organize the Red Triangle drive in Grand  Forks, originally set for May 5-9,  and postponened on gecount of the  campaign to raise funds for the  local memorial fund, held at that  time, met Tuesday evening, to consider the question, and also the possibility of being able to obtain sufficient support to make it a financial  success. ���������  The committee realizing that the  public in general were not in sympathy with an appeal being made  for this purpose, decided it would  be inadvisable to carry on the campaign as requested, and passed the  following resolution:  "Wbeieas, The   town  of   Grand  Forks'on   two  previous   drives,  in  1917   and    1918,   has   given to the  Red Triangle fund about S3400: and  whereas, at the present time we are  requested to contribute SI500   as a  memorial fund to   those   who   have  fallen from this district, and also are  b-ing asked to Inaugurate a drive to  raLe $500 for the  Salvation   Army,  who have not up to the   present requested assistance, therefore we feel  the town will not support the   present appeal on behalf of the Ilfd Tri  angle fund, and   would   resommend  that the Red Triangle campaign   be  not undertaken."  Those present at the meeting were  F.    J.   Miller,   J.   P.    Davis, JihIl'^  Brown, \V. B   Bishop, J. D.   Camp  bell and G  H. Hull.  A Connoisseur  "You say you have references?"  "Yes, ma'am. 1 have a hunched  splendid references,"j  "And how long have you boon in  domestic service?"  "Two years, ma'am."  Since "The Scout" discussed the  alleged attempt to force the Doukhobors from their holdings at Brilliant,  B. C, considerable more light has  been thrown upon the question,  says the Regiua Leader. Correspondence appearing in the public press  reveals a condition which is anything but creditable to Canada's  boasted love of fair play. For many  generations the British empire has  been a harbor of refugo for tbe persecuted of European tyranny; who  in their desire for freedom found a  domicile on Britain's shores.  In proof of this it is only necessary to mention such names as Kossuth, Garibaldi, Karl Marx and  many  others who have   not   only  THE 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 30, 1910  ���������', After listening attentively to the speech of  the  leader  of the opposition  hist  Saturday  ni������ht, we have arrived at the conclusion  that  the   salvation   of British   Columbia���������if  this  province should ever be in need of salvation-  does not lay in tbe direction of W. J. Bowser  as prime minister.   Mr. Bowser's speech, from  start to finish, was a tirade  against the- government  o,f the  day.    It, was  not an honest  criticism   'Even staunch Liberals  admit  that  the ii'overnmojit has made some blunders; but  it has also put some good laws oir the  statute  books.    But Mr. Bowser accused   it of committing almost every crime that has   been- invented   up   the   present' day, and   denied  it  credit  for   doing a  single   praiseworthy act.  Therein lay the weakness of his  arraignment,  and this- fact  unoubtedly  accounted for  the  lack of enthusiasm at the meeting.  money goe.s for overhead charges,  Mr.   Bowser, as leader of the opposition, should see that  the.amount is. kept within reasonable bounds.  His" assertion that any old-timer is as capable  to locate a highway as  an   experienced   engineer is scarcely tenable.   Without  detracting  from   the intelligence  of the  old-timer, it is  generally admitted that special training is ie^  Quired to produce efficiency in  any undertaking.    Not all of the old-timers who happened  to receive appointments as road foremen   under the  late  government were trained road  builders, and everyone knows that much public money was wasted by  roads  being  built  where they should not have been built.  r-  e Spectacles; of Yesterday  fulfilled thoir mission when vision was improved. Tod-ty  they are required to improve vision and also to con������erve  riprvous energy, the waste of which shows itself in headache, inflamed eyes and lids, or in any other kind of nervous reflex, formerly attributed to other causes. It is  highly important that von bave.ynur eyps prop.erly fitted.  Call and pee usand we will give expert advice.  :=^  A. D. MORRISON  JEWELER AND OPTICIAN  GRAND FORKS, B. G.  To the returned soldier Mr. Bowser did not  promise anything better, in the event of the  success of the Conservative party at the next  election, than he is receiving from the Oliver  government,. ' -Not only were his promises in  this respect quite meagre, b'ut there was an  implied threat in -his remarks that if;the returned soldier did not remain good he would  not receive anything at all.'  -J  Mr. Bowser deplored the increase in the  civil servant salary list. So do everyone else.  But Mr, Bowser must remember that all salaries  and the cost of living have doubled since 1914.  Id would be as unreasonable to expect the  government to carry on the public business  today at the same cost as obtained before- the  ���������war as it would be to ask a laborer to work  now for a dollar and a halt a dav.  In minimizing the importance of the public  utilities act the speaker did not, in our opinion, add any laurels to his reputation as a  statesman. Of course, Mr. -Bowser's fiat on  this question may be worth more than ours;  but men equally as shrewd as Mr. Bowser  have expressed the belief that the British  Columbia public utilities act is the most advanced legislation that has ever been enacted  in the Dominion. The question as to soundness of Mr. Bowser's judgment is, therefore,  at least a debatable one. The public will have  to be the judge.  The speaker's charge that all the loose  money around the parliament buildings is being handed out to the newspapers should not  worry Mr.'Bowser very much.    As far as the   -. -.  . ' - &��������� -     y ���������'            - -  interior is concerned, if any money from Victoria reaches t he newspapers it .-all..goes to the  papers, that defeated bim in the late election  by supporting him. They will accomplish the  same result with trie government-of the day  if they continue to stick to'it. . When a newspaper gets so enamored'of: the flesh pots that  it is willing to swear, for a little personal gain,  that black is white, and that vice is a virtue,  its support of cause or a party is more of a  hindrance than an asset, and Mr. Bowser has  been long enough in public life to have learn  ad this fact.  The referendum measure was characterized  as a clap=-trap piece of legislation, fit only to  be discussed at Socialists' meetings. The  speaker's principal objection to the bill appear to be the cost of its operation. It would  cost the people of the province, he said, at  least $100,000 to take a referendum vote on a  public question. There are two sides to this  matter of cost. Should a referendum be taken  between two regular elections, the cost to the  taxpayers would undoubtedly be great. But  the occasion may never arise when this emer-  eoncy will have to be resorted to; and, on thc  other hand, to take a referendum vote at a  general election will not involve one cent of  expense to the people. The law may come  iu hand vat regular elections, aud if it is not  taken advantage of between elections, no one  will be financially hurt. It is not a burden to  the people on the statute books.  The best antidote against bolshevism is to  be found in the popularizing of the "get a-  stake-in-Canada" movement. Every rMit  thinking person wants a stake in the  country, especially in a country such as Canada, because its national resouroes and the  general nature of its life make it potentially  one of the richest of nations and one of the  most desirable to live in. Nothing could be  easier than to get a stake in Canada. All that  one has.to do is to put $4 and a few cents  into a war savings stamp, which pays 4������ per  cent compounded half-yearly, and one has a  stake in Canada in the form of a government  bond, just as secere as a Victory, or any other  kind of bond, issued by the Canadian government. -  Of all present-day Sewing Machines.

FRUIT QUOTATIONS ARE   HIGHER  Mr. Bowser's criticism that too much of the  grants for road work' now go to overhead  charges may or may not be well founded. The  present method of employing competent engineers to locate our highways is, we believe, a  step in advance of the old way of leaving this  important work to the judgment of every man  had who sufficient political influence to obtain  an appointment as roar] foreman,  if too inucli'Cm'.u  Early indications are that fruit prices for 1919 will be  considerably higher than in 1918, says the Penticton  Herald, whiuh strengthens this statement by publishing a  copy of a circular issued by the Penticton Cooperative  Growers, the local union house.

Pre-emptors must occupy claims for  five years and make improvements to  value of $10 per acre, including clearing  and cultivation of at least 5 acres, before  receiving Crown  Grant.  Where pre-emptor in occupation not  less than 3 years," and has made proportionate improvements, he may, because  of ill-health or other cause, be granted  intermediate certificate of improvement  . and transfer his claim.  Records without permanent residence  may be issued provided applicant makes  improvements to extent of $300 per annum and records same each year. Failure to make improvements or record  same will operate as forfeiture.

Provision is made for the grant *o  persons holding uncompleted Agreements to Purchase from the Crown of  such proportion of tho land, if divisible,  as the payments already made will  cover in proportion to tho sale price of  the whole parcel. Two or more persons  holding such Agreements may group  their interests and apply for a proportionate allotment jointly. Tf It is not  considered advisable to divide the land  covered by an application for a proportionate allotment, an allotment of land  of equal value selected from available  Crown lands in the locality may be  made. These allotments are conditional  upon payment of all taxes due the  Crown or to any municipality. The  rights of persons to whom the purchaser from the Crown has agreed to  sell are also protected. The decision of  the Minister of Lands in respect to the  adjustment of a proportionate allotment  is final. The time for making application for these allotments is limited to:  thc 1st day of May, 1010. Any applica-i  Hon made after this date will not bej  considered.

Miss Munro, one of   the  teachers  in the Greenwood   schoil, who   has  Tricking a Witness  Tho best piece of cross-examination  ever heard in the law courts was done  by the late Mr. Montague Williams  many years ago.  He was defending a man of good  position against whom a very serious  charge had been made. The only  real question was identity, and this  turned on the evidence of a young  woman who swore positively that she  had seen the prisoner, at the particular  spot on the nighq of the fireworks.  Everybody was expecting a long  cross-examination of the witness  when MintHgue Williams rose to his  feet.  But he only asked one question,  which was, "I suppose it was a bright  moonlight night, and so you did not  seethe fireworks well1?"  Back came the answer: "Nothing  of the sort, sir; it was as dark as  pitch."  Montague Williams sat down. Of  course, if it had been as dark as the  girl described she could not have been  able to distinguish the accused. So  the man was acquitted.  There is no deubt that more cases  are lost to opponents by long oross-  examination-thuD are won from the  ather side.
