Harkness,  McArdle, McCabe, McCallum, McDonald and Schnitter were present  at the regular meeting of the city  council on Monday evening.  A communication was read from  ��������� the city council of Toronto, asking  the council to endorse a petition to  the federal government to submit  to the electorate at the next general  election an amendment to the .British North America Act providing  for the abolition of the senate of  Canada. The council deferred action on the communication.  A communication from the secre-  lary of the school board and the  caretaker of the school, asked permission to use the city water one  whole day per week for watering the  ���������school garden, and also to be allowed to sprinkle the school lawn  outside the sprinkling hours when  required. They- stated the water  would be used as economically as  possible. Referred to waterand-light  committee, with instructions to report back to the council.  The chairman  of   the  Water and  light committee reported in favor of  paying the chief of the  fire  department   a salary   of  ������15 per month,  commencing with the   1st   of May.  Ou motion   of   Aid.   McCabe,    the  ���������"recommendation'was* approved.  The chairman of the   health and  relief committee   reported  that the  old buildings in the rear of the city  hall had been removed,  but a lot of  rubbish which had .been   left" made  the premises unsightly. He re'ebrn  mended that the chief of  police   be  instructed to make the owners clean  the premises.      The   recommendation whs   approved. . He   also   reported   a    Chinaman's  premises on  Main .street to  be in an untidy condition.  Matthews Bros asked permission  to install a gasoliue pump at the  odge of the sidewalk in front of  their garage on First street. The  request was granted.  The council spent the balance of  the evening in committee of the  whole considering the weights and  measures bylaw. The committee  rose and reported progress, and the  council adjourned.  COO prisoners and - tremendous  amounts of booty in cannqn and  materials.  Reports, both official and unofficial, are that, while continuing bis  efforts to widen his salient, tbe  enemy appears to be turning the  main direction of his movement  westvyard, doubtless with the intention of.capturing the railroads to  Paris. The push southward to the  Marne is an attempt to cut the Paris-  Challons line, in the opinion of military critics here. i  HAS MILLION MEN  OVERSEAS NOW  Morlcy Miller, Aged 8, Receives Injuries Which  Prove Fatal  Chicago, May 30. ���������Senator James  Lewis Hamilton said in a speech  here today that the United States  now has one million soldiers in  foreign lands and that by December  ] it will be numerically equal to  that of England.  The American navy, the senator  added,has 150 warships nEuropean  waters and 50 others of a war chai-  acter under constructiu. There are  400,000 men in the navy and by  October 1 there will be 500,000.  News of the City  Charles Mudge last week received  the first letter from  his son, Corp.  Monty   Mudge, since   he   has   b?eii  interned in Holland..    He says he is  in   good  health   and is very glad to  getaway from  Germany, although  it is rather hard to get used to^free  dom after   three   years'    imprison  merit.'   The   Hollanders  try   to do  their best for the interned   soldiers,  and they   are   very   hospitable,   but  food supplies are not of   the   best  It is expected   that   conditions   will  improve  shortly,   when the   wheat  supply reaches the country from the  United   States. . George. Fitz   and  Sergt. A. Potentier are afso interned  in   Holland,   after   spenting   three  years in German prisons.  Pte. A. VVilson, of Phoenix, who  was trained in this city and went  overseas with one of the early contingents, was in the city yesterday-,  being on his way to Phoenix to visit  his parents for a few days, after  which he vyill return to the hospital  in Toronto. Mr. Wi son lost his  left hand and the major portion of  his teeth by German shells at tbe  front.  ENEMY RATE OF  PROGRESS DWINDLES  In the police court before Judgp  Cochrane on Saturday a Phoenix  man was fined $50 and costs for  having intoxicating liquor on his  pprson at Christina lake on Empire  day. Another man, also from Phoenix, was fined $10 and costs for  having too much liquor  inside   his  A pathetic motor truck accident  occurred at 4:40 Wednesday afternoon midway between the C.P.R.  freight sheds and the West end passenger depot, as a result of which  Morley Rogers Miller, aged S years  and G months, died in the Grand  Forks hospital two hours later.  The lad was riding on P. C. Peterson's motor truck, and was seated  by the side of Mr. Peterson, who  driving the car. At the point stated  above the boy got out of the seat  and crawled onto the side board or  steps and jumped to the ground.  Iu landing in the soft sand, he is  supposed to have fallen on bis face  in front of one of the hind wheels  of the truck, which passed diagonally over one of his shoulders and  the upper portion of his back. Mr.  Peterson was driving the car and  looking straight in front of him,  therefore he did not see how the  accident happened, and no one else  saw it, but the details' are "supposed  to be substantially as stated above.  Alter the truck had passed over  him, the boy jumped to his feet, but  ne fell to the ground again almost  immediately. He was hurriedly  conveyed to the Grand Forks hospital, where an examination by Dr.  Kingston showed that his spine had  beeu broken, and it was apparent  that there was no chance of saving  his life. He never spoke after the  accident,and after lingering between  life and death for two hours he  passed away.  The tragical death of the little  boy is regarded as a purely accidental one,und no blame is attached  to the driver of the truck. The car  was running on low gear at the  time, and as the road is very sandy  at the place it "is not likely that the  speed was over three miles per hour.  The victim of the accident was  the son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank J.  Miller, who are pioueers of the city,  Mr. Miller being the senior member  of the firm of Miller & Gardner.  The lad was unusually bright,' always standing near the head of his  class in school, and much sympathy is being expressed by the citizens for the parents in their great  bereavement.  The funeral from the family   resi  Toyama .swarm with these little area  tures, and fishermen go out with  special nets to catch them.  When en ugh in the meshes the fish  omit their light and cause the nets to  sparkle as if charged with electricity.  The people regard the sight as wonderful, and rush in great excitement  to see it. Pleasure boats are in demand on those occasions, and it is a  favorite courtesy to invito a friend to  an evening of entertainment in watching the sparkling cuttlefish.  SPECTACULAR  WAS THE FIGHT  On tbe 2Sth three American aviators defeated four German airmen  in a spectacular -battle over the  American lines in France. One  enemy plane was destroyed and the  others were driven oil'. The fight  raged fifteen minutes The machines  were constantly maneuvering in a  brilliant manner. Just before the  Germans fled the wings of one German plane was entirely shot away,  the body dropping like a  plummet.  Ground Bcin������> Broken for  Mill���������Many Men Arc  Employed  News of the City  The frost last week was, from all  reports, rather freakish. In some  orchards it is said to have done considerable damage to fruit and tender  vegetation, while at other places not  even the .tender tomato plant was  injured. No damage is reported  from the lower part of the valley.  When the full eflVct of the frost is  ascertained,it may possibly turn out  to be a: blessing, by automatically  thinning the fruit.

The  railway is being built by Coniractor  Tierney for tho Kettle Valley line.  "The mill will have a floor area  of 140 by 300 feet and will be composed of two units of 1000 tons  each," said Mr. Lachmund. "The  plans contemplate the addition of  units as conditions warrant.  "The raise is up 300 feet and  lacks 450 feet of the upper level.  Raises are proceeding in ore fiom  the upper level.  "We expect to engage in diamond  drilling from the lower  level   dowi.-'  ward, as we have reason   for   belief  that additional ore may be developed  there.  "A steam shovel is at work on tlie  railroad grade and Contractor Tierney has let subcontracts for the per-  that district.  The Red Cross dance at Christina  is said to have been quite  severe in  the Okauagan valley, and   reports of I formauce   of   grading between   the  considerable   damage    comes   from   town and the mill.  Men are at work.  '���������About 130 men are employed in  the mine and 100 at the mill, including those in tbe employ of the  Summerland Lumber company,  which is cutting material that will  enter into the construction of the  ooncentrator."

FRIDAY, MAY 31, 1018  The situation on the. western   front during  the  past  two  days has been of a decidedly  critical  nature, and   even now, although the  advance of the enemy appears  to have  been  partially  stemmed, it is sufficiently serious to  cause considerable anxiety for the immediate  welfare of the allied armies.    But slight temporary successes of the enemy will  have  no  bearing on the ultimat0 outcome of the struggle. They will only have a tendency to  make  the allied nations and their armies,  more, determined, and viewed in this light the present  small advance made by the Hun may prove to  be   a  factor  in  shortening   the war.   "Garry  on."    : '���������������������������.'���������   ��������� ������������������������������������:'.���������  ^  It is reported that the severe frosts of the  past two weeks have done considerable damage to the fruit crop in this province. It is  liot thought, however, that the loss will be  very heavy, as nearly all the frozen fruit can  probably be used for making frosted fruit  cake.  So great is the demand for castor oil as a  lubricant for aircraft machinery that more  than 70,000 acres in the United States has  been planted to castor beans, says the Youth's  Companion. Meanwhile little Johnnie and  his Sister Sue-look ���������with marked approval on  the new use to which the oil is put-  Ad vices from many points in western Canada state that the anti-loafer law is proving  effective. The chief of police of Calgary has  been rounding up the idlers and twenty men  were arrested recently. In most casesrthe  knowledge that they were liable to heavy fine  or imprisonment has driven the loafers to  work. The result has been that many men  have been secured for farm vnd other employment.  The Grain Growers'Guide says that the  farmers of western Canada are fully in agreement with thc farmers of the United States  who recently declared that they were not  profiteers and that they considered the price  of $2.20 per bushel for wheat was  sufficiaiit.  The  magnificent  quality  of  the   sacrifice  made   by Canadians on  the western fighting  front is pretty well fixed in  the minds  of all  who   have  followed   the  record  of the war,  says the New York Evening 8un.   The  offer-  iiig-of 10,000 lives at Ypres alone was a glori  ous' deed, but it has been.followed up by  the  steady  support   of   the Dominion  wherever  called upon to carry arms.   Moreover, the,support given by Canadians in Canada is   not   to.  be considered less importaiv/'tlian her faithful  service in France.    We are just beginning   to  ti . o yJ  realize, 'in the United States,-how integral and  necessary a part of the work of war is the industrial and economic and financial work  which is done far back' of the fighting front.  The devotion and sacrifice of the Canadian  people at home has been so great as to command unqualilied admiration. The.ir devotion  has resulted in splendid achievement, and has,  incidentally, brought gratifying consequences  to communities and individuals. In a word, it  has paid them well, both in concrete results  for war supplies of all kinds and in maintaining and bettering the genenal morale of the  ivilu  Our system of eye examination enables us  to correctly fit lenses which relieve eyestrain and eye troubles.  %=  JEWELER AND OPTICIAN  GRAND i?ORKS, B.

The allies' -wheat supply  is  seriously close  to the point of exhaustion.   There is wheat in  Australia and   India, but these countries  are  both practically inaccessible by reason of the  shipping shortage.    There lias been much talk  of using Japanese vessels to bring  Australian  wheat to America, but the project is problematical at best, and the amount which   may   be  carried during the next three or four months  is necessarily limited.    Part of the Argentine  crop has yet to be moved,-but with 'increasing  demands upon cargo vessels to transport soldiers and munitions to support  the  allies   in  their present crisis, the ships can ill be spared.  One boat on the North American route  is  worth  two operating between   Argentine and  Europe.  South America has not enough surplus wheat to meet the allies' needs, and  besides,   every   time   that  we, by our failure to  save bread and meat,force an allied vessel to no  elsewhere for supplies, we hold back from our  hard-pressed fighting men at least one transport of United States reinforcements.  The allies look to us far wheat and we have  not been giving them tlie quantities they need.  The  British   ministry of food has just cabled  this message: "Wheat imports are notorriving  in sufficient quantities to meet our weekly re-  vuirements.

BRITISH COLUMBIA  TELEPHONE COMPANY, LTD  MYSTERY AT  PSYCHIATRIC UNIT  "Who's looney now?" This is the  big question over at the psychiatric  unit at the naval training station at  Great Lakes, 111.  A few days ago Ensign John Snarpe  discovered an ex-sleight of-hand performer among tho recruits in detention. Mr. Sharpe seized the opportunity for some fun.     He  called   the  psychiatric unit, asked for Chief Yeoman Dodds and said:  j "I have a loon I am going to send  1 over. He is as crazy as a bat, so  I watch out for him."  I Then turning to the sleight-of-hand  i man he remarked: ' 'Go over and shosv  them a good time."  When the "loon" appeared at the  unit, Dodds shosved him to a "seat,  brought out the various blocks .and  puzzles and started to find out wheth  0r his patient was born   crazy   or   attained it later.  "Take these blocks"���������Dodds began.  But the blocks had disappeared.  Business of searching high and low,  but no blocks.  Dodds registered consternation, excitement, _ perplexity���������but still no  blocks.  "I think you-will find them'in your  right coat pocket," said the man being examined. And sure enough,there  thev were.  Dodds tried again.  "Nowhere is a picture, look at i  ten seconds and tell me about it."  "Where is the picture? This is only  a piece of paper," said the mystery  man.  Dodds replied, "I gave you a picture."  "Here is what you gave me, sir."  Tho picture was gone. Dodds was  certain he handed it to the sleight-of-  hand man.  "Did you look in the chair, sir1?"  asked the "loon."  Dodds found he was sitting on the  very picture he had just handed the  actor.  Several things disappeared in like  manner until it was suggested that  some one certainly did need an examination���������but not necessarily the  sleiaht-of-hand man.
