Donaldson, and  McCallum  were present at theregu  lar meeting of the   city 'council   on  Tuesday evening.  A communication from Mr. Ki'dd,  of Vancouver, quoting prices on fireproof safes, was ordered filed.'  A communication frpm ��������� Percy  Andrews drew the council's.attention  to a field of mustard going to seed  -adjacent to his ranch. The council  was of the opinion that the pr per  -party - to lodge the complaint with  was the owner of the land.  A petition was received from  Messrs. Andrews, Peterson, Coryell,  et al.,requesting the council to open  up Briar street, near the Cooper  bridge. On motion of Aid. Bicker-  ton and McCallum, the request of  the petitioners was granted.  An application for city water from  Harpld   Miller   was referred to the  .   chairman' of, .the   water and'ligbt  committee.- " * ' -  Mrs. Logan,  city' janitrese, made  application for an increase of $6 per  month in her   salary.    Referred   to  the   chairman   of  the finance com  " mittee, with instructions  to   report  at, the next meeting.  Bernard Lequime addressed, the  council on the subject of establishing  a creamery in the city.    A* such an  enterprise would undoubtedly be of  great benefit to the  city  and   community, he thought the city  should  be willing to make some concessions.  In   his   opinion   assistance   in the  shape of a free site, exemption from  taxation  for eight  years, and  free  water and light for two years, would  be a fair inducement.    He intended  to install a superior plant to that in  the   Curlew  creamery.    Aid.   Donaldson expressed  himself as  being  in favor of the enterprisers it would  be a good  thing for the city.    He  did not think that Mr. Lequime had  asked   for   anything  unreasonable.  Aid. McCallum said the city should  encourage all industries, and Mayor  Gaw expressed the same sentiments,  but he suggested that action in  the  matter be postponed until some future meeting when all the aldermen  should be present.    This was  satisfactory   to   Mr.   Lequime, and tbe  subject was   dropped for the time  being.  On motion of Aid. Donaldson and  Bickerton, VV. J. Mclntyre "was allowed the difference in the cost of a  1-inch and a 2-incb water main to  his new house in the West end.  The chairman of the board of  works reported th-^t the Fourth  street bridge had been replanked  satisfactorily; the grading of Observation avenue and Water street was  nearly completed, but the block required to straighten the latter street  at the C.P.R, crossing had not yet  been secured from the railway company; the sidewalk on Winnipeg  avenue, this side the school house,  was in a bad condition, and should  be replaced by a six-foot walk, On  motion, the board of works was au  thorized to have this walk renewed,  and ajso to build a hoard walk on  the north side of Second street,  from' Bridge street to the alley near  Campbell &, Liddicoat's blacksmith  shop, and,to.make the required re:  pairs to other.sidewalks,' and  cross-  il)g?-..    ," '      Y -'���������-.������"���������    ..   .'.���������'..

It   would   be laid as  soon as it arrival.  On rjiotioiilof Aid. McCallum and  Bonthrori/.tHe; matter of re papering  the council": chambers was referred  to .the'mayor, and the finance committee. ���������    ','',''.  Aid. .Bonthron stated that the  ���������property 'owners on Victoria avenue,  between Second and" Third streets,  had petitioned for a five foot cement sidewalk last summer. At  that time there was'no money available for this work If these property owners were still of the same  mind, they could have the walk  W. J Galipeau, who was present,  explained that the petition had  been sent to Greenwood for the sig  nature of a property owner, and  that it would be returned to this  city in a day or two. On the representation, ��������� the" board of "works was  authorized to have tbe sidewalk  constructed.  .The. chairman, of, the...board of-  works explained that there was still  more money avalable for cement  sidewalks, but property owners were  slow in making application for the  same.  On motion of Aid. McCallum,  the lawn sprinkling hours were  fixed from 6 to 9 o'clock in the  morning and from 5. to 9 in. the  evenisig.  On motion of Aid. McCallum and  v  Bonthron, the health and relief com  mittee was authorized to hire a  team and a man to complete hanl-  ing away the debris gathered on  cleaning-up day, at a cost not to exceed $15.  ANOTHER STRIKE  rank   and   gives  an  entertainment  that is of real worth.  Mrs. Emslie was assisted in the  program by Mrs. G. H. Lee, - Miss  Nellie Carter and W. H. Tasker,  whose services are always of high  value and much appreciated.  The Indications  Are That,  Another Rich Mine Has  Been Discovered  Another strike of what appears to  be high grade ore wa.madeiu Frank  lin camp this week, on the .United  Verde and United Verde fraction  claims, owned by Wm. Minion and  Lewis Johnson. These properties,  which are located on the opposite  side of the river from the Union  mine, are being developed by Mr..  Minion and Lew Merson. A twelve-  foot shaft has been sunk. The surface formation on these claims is the  same as that on he Union property,  and the ore appears to be of a similar character as is now being shipped  from that mine. Mr. Johnson took  a sample of the ore over to Nelson  oh Monday to have an assay  made.  NEWS OF THE CUT  ' A general meeting of the stockholders of the Grand Forks Concrete company will be held in the  Miners' Union hall next Tuesday  evening, June 3, for the transaction  of general business. A very creditable display of some of the articles  manufactured by this company has  been made by the side of A.  A. Frechette's ' harness shop The  exhibit includes concrete fence posts,,  pipe, and ornamental -building  blocks.   ���������  Board of Trade Wants Great  Northern to   Examine  North Fork District  THE MIDWAY  CELEBRATION  For the seven days ending May  21, tbe Granby smelter in this city  treated 24,133 tons of ore, 23,897  tons of which were from the company's own properties and 226 tons  of foreign ore. For the same period  Granby shipped 347,000 -pounds of  blister copper.

This  crowd was augmented, considerably  during the day by auto parties from  this city, it being stated that twenty-  five machines made the trip, so that  Grand Forks was fairly   well   represented  at  the  celebration.      Large  crowds were also present from Greenwood,   Phoenix,   Rock  Creek  and  other Boundary points.  The weather was all that could be  desired, and the sports were, well  handled by those in charge, there  being something going on all day  The baseball tournament, which  was participated in by teams from  Danville, Molson, Republic, Phoenix and Grand Forks, was won by  Phoenix,, who captured three games.  The football match between the  Mother Lode and Grand Forks  elevens was keenly contested and  proved a leading attraction for the  spectators. After a hard .fought  contest the match resulted in a draw,  the prize money being divided  between the two teams.  Trap shooting, horse races and  athletic sports occupied the balance  of an enjoyable day's out.ting, while  a dance was given  in   the evening.  Assistant Principal Matheson of  the public school has received word  from Major Belson that he will be  in Grand Forks on July 11th to inspect the local corp'of cadets. The  boys are now using tbe large Ross  rifles in target practice at the range  of tbe Kettle Valley rifle association  and some good scores are being  made, Heath Hales, scoring 33 out  of a possible 35 at 200 yards.  The shareholders of the Grand  Forks.Canning company will hold a  general meeting in the cannery  building on Friday, June" 5. A  proposition to re-organize the company under the Agricultural Association act will be made.

The west bound Great Northern  passenger train ran off the track  near Curlew last nightb All of the  coaches were derafled, .but only one  passenger was slightly injured. The  accident tied up freight traffiic for  about twelve hours  "There was a good-attendance at  the regular meeting of the Grand  Forks board of'trade'on Wednesday  evening: In the absence of President DeCew, Dr. Acres occupied the  chair.  The secretary was instructed to  write to Hon. Martin Burrell, minister of agriculture, and to Inspector  of Fisheries Cunningham, at New  Westminster, in regard to stocking  Christina lake with bass fingerlings,-  and to explain to these gentlemen  that these fish are not indiginous  to these waters. He was also requested to write to the post office  department, urging that mail boxes  be placed at the railway stations in  this city.  A resolution was adopted instructing the transportation, committee to take up the matter of a  common point freight rates with the  officials of the railways entering the  city.  The secretary was instructed to'  write to Second Vice-President Ken-  ney, of the traffic department of the  Great Northern railway, and call  his attention to the development  and resources of the North Fork  country, and to ask him to investigate the*same.  The chairmen of the various com-  -xiittees were instructed to hand in  their estimates for the current year  to the secretary at as early a date as  possibly.  On motion, the board decided that  during the months of June, July and  August meetings would only beheld  on tbe third Tuesday of each  month.

Mrs.   Belle   Rose   Emslie is an  World's Leading Advertiser  The death took place tbe other  day of the man of whom perhaps it  could be fairly said that he was tbe  world's leading advertiser, T. J.  Barratt, who made Pears' soap the  household word that it has become.  When he took over the business,  the most money that had ever been  spent in advertising the soap in a  year was $400. His bills of late  years have been in the neighborhood of $600,000. He elaborated  his theories to a considerable extent  and the motto that he attached the  most importance to was this: "Advertising does not jerk, but pulls,"  It was not the spasmodic big display that he found brought results  53  Inches'  artist of high order.

Carter, with Sharp _z Irvine, mining  brokers, Spokane, who has been  gathering data on the copper situation.  "In the last five years the world's  copper surplus has fallen from 350,-  000,000 pounds to 110,000,000  pounds," says Mr. Carter. "At the  present rate of consumption this is  but a 15 days' supply.  "Tbe first quarter of 1914 showed  a production of 11,000,000 pounds  less than for the corresponding  period in 1913, and, allowing a  slight decrease for tbe remainder of  the year, the total outpat will be  about 1,650,000,000 pounds, leaving  a deficit of 25,000,000 pounds to be  supplied from the surplus stock of  110,000,000 pounds.  "This condition marks the prospects for the copper producing properties of the north-west as unusually bright. There undoubtedly  will be an apprecia ble advance in  copper prices soon, and as a result  such companies as tbe Granby, the  B. C.   Copper,   the  Canadian  Con-  Rainfall  0.62 silence.

The Union mine is one i  0 of the richest in the west,, and  with railway  communication  with the camp it would be the  best paying mining  propo'si  .ions   in   British    Columbia.  If the   latest    strike  proves  equally as good, we may yet  witness a mining excitement  at our back door  in  spite  of  the  fact that it is a difficult  task    to   stampede   the   old  miner and prospector unless  he can   see  danger, privation  and hardships ahead of him  FRIDAY,- MAY 29,   1914  Western,Canada is oil mad  at present. A month ago men  who were, then supposed to be  hard pressed for ready 'cash  now have an abundance of  money to hand over to the  first oil promoter who happens to cross their' path.

The excitement is a forcible remind-  . er that gambling is an  inherent  trait  of human    nature,  ' and, that most people play the  game  until  they   go   broke.  A few years ago the mining  "wild-cattor" was  in    vogue.  He   was   succeeded   by  the  "wild-cat" real estate peddler.  These gentlemen made dupes  of the public.    The .oil   promoters   are  now    doing  the  identical thing.    Oil  is  valuable, and it may become more  valuable as the years roll  on;  but  before you  invest in oil  stock find out if the company  has any oil   lands, where   located, .and  if the officers and  promoters   are   men    of   integrity.   ���������  If  the  strikes  of rich ore  that have been made in Franklin camp during the past few  months  had  been   made   in  some scorching desert, or in  an  inaccessible region of the  frozen north, there would have  been a stampede to it of considerable magnitude.    But because it is in the heart of civilization  no  one pays any attention to it.    And yet, from  present, indications, there are  yet fortunes to be made there.  The   find   made   this    week  shows   that it  is not a one-  mine camp, and the man who  invests his surplus  money in  According to gardeners,  amateur and professional, we  have many objectionable, pestiferous and destructive bugs  in British- Columbia���������insects  that make the life of the horticulturist a 'burden.

He is the Chinch bug,  and to his discredit there is  an item of three hundred and  fifty million dollars, representing the damage he has done  in sixty years. Although we  can not help thinking this is  only an estimate, yet we hope  that Chinch may not consider  British Columbia worth invading.

Death of Mrs. Geo. Chappie  Mrs. F. E. Cooper received a tele:  gram from Victoria on Monday saying that Mrs. George Chappie had  died suddenly in that city on the  previous evening. No particulars  were given, except that she was in  her usual health on the day before  her death.   ;  Mrs.   Chappie   was,  one   of   the  pioneers   of   Grand   Forks, and resided   here   until   about four years  ago. when she and her husband and  their four children removed   to Spb-  1 .ne.    After a r.wo years' residence  in that city they moved to Victoria.  .Mrs.   Chappie   was   between   thirty  and   forty   y^ars   of   a<re, of   robust  constirntion, find the   news   of   her  death was a great, surprise   to    her  many, friends here.'   She was a most  estimable    woman,    and   her many  good'qua lilies made her   very popular with all classes of society., While  she lived   here she took a great interest in fraternal society work, and  her former co-workers in this   field,  as well as  tbe citizens at   large, extend their   heartfelt  sympathies  to  the bereaved family.

THE   SUN,    GRAND   FORKS,   B. C.  TO  S  Department of Agriculture  Tells How to Eradicate  Dandelion Pest  The first dandelion of the season  is welcome because it is a harbinger  o'f spring, but its fellows quickly  'wear out their welcome because tbey  swarm over and ruin the lawns. One  of the things difficult to understand  is why some lawns are almost absolutely free from this' pest, while  others close by are drowned in a sea  of dandelion seeds. - The owner of  the injured lawn works as hard as  the happy possessor of the lawn free  from the weed, but his efforts appear useless. To such unfortunate  victims the United States department of agriculture holds out   hope  of   SUCeHSS;  Cut off the top of each   dandelion  plant and apply a thimbleful of salt  to the "root exposed.    This will   kill  almost any dandelion.    But  salt, if  ' generally applied, ruins soil, and so  it must be placed only on the top of  thc root of   the dandelion.   Cutting  off the top without salting  the   root  is labor lost, because .the   tap   root  grows down so deeply  that   cuttiug  off the top encourages thicker growth  from the root.    The best time to do  the work is before the weed is  seed  ed.    The   spreading   of  the   seeds  from lawns in the vicinity is of such  seriousness that cropping the dandelion before it has saeded might fitly  be made a subject  of legal   regulation in each pestered community.  Should the lawn be thickly covered with dandelions, thicken the  stand of grass or start all over again.  Thickening the grass crowds out the  dandelion. Put the grass into . vigorous condition in the autumn with  fertilizer and reseed it where the  grass is thin. Or plow the lawn up  or, if it be small, spade it and work  in commercial fertilizer or manure  that has rotted thoroughly. Fresh  manure contains seeds of weeds  ready to germinate. If the soil needs  lime, especially when, white clover  is sown, use lime. Harrow the land  or rake it frequently. Thorough cultivation destroys the seedlings and  tbe dandi'lions. The lawn should  be kept, in good condition through  careful niowinir, rolling and watering tip raying the dandelions with  a solution of sulphate of iron is dis  countenanced by the department of  agriculture,' because the solution  kills the grass beside the dandelion.  James J. Hill  The proposal to found  a railroad  p.rofessorship at Harvard in honor of  James J. Hill arises from a desire to  pay an adequate tribute  to   one   of  the most   remarkable men this continent   has   "produced.    He   stands  head and shoulders above his   compeers in the railroad world, and   no  name  is  so closely associated with  the development   of  the   American  west as his.    Imagination, courage,  immense grasp and indomitable de  tem.inatiomhave1 characterized  bis  exlreordinary career.    He built  up  a   great    transcontinental    system  without a subsidy of any kind,   developing the country and paying for  his road as he  went along.    When  we reflect upon the untold   millions  the people of Canada   have devoted  to railway construction it is  refreshing to contemplate the phenomenon  immediately south of the   boundary  line which sprang from ��������� the  genius  of James J. Hill.  He was the dominating   figure   in '"that  remarkable  quartette ��������� Strathcona,      Stephen,  Kennedy and himself���������who laid the  foundation   of   the  Great Northern  system.    The three others were  the  financial wizzards, but he   was   the  promoter, builder and operator of the  road when built.    He began his life  with next to no educational advantages, but today,to quote Elbert Hubbard, "he is one of the best educated  men in the world." Farmers,bankers  and   men   of  various other callings  never listen to his addresses without  feeling that they have learned much  that is of  value.    Americans   have  come to regard him   as   a   national  asset, and with this idea  Canadians  can well sympathize,  for   the   man  they   honor    is    Canadian born.���������  Victoria Times,  Will British Statesmanship Fail  British people have been wont to  speak highly of themselves and  their ability to govern themselves,  say's a Manitoba "exchange. Yet at  the present moment the people of  Great Britain are showing as much  ability to govern themselves as the  people of Mexico or China.  The situation in Ulster shows  quite clearly that the statesmen in  Great Britain are not possessed of  any higher God given powers than  the statesmen of other countries.  Civil war is considered to be the  mark of a low civilization and a  faint patriotism. Therefore, a civil  war in Britain must indicate a decline in the "ethical qualities of. the  British people. It may be but a  temporary phase, but nevertheless  the evidence is there.  When Saul grew jealous of David's  popularity, a just punishment came  upon him. The British people have  been vauuting their .own' greatness  and their own virtues, and behold  they, too, ' are humbled. They  thought themselves better than those  Pharisees, the Cerrnans, the French,  and, the Yankees, and behold, pride  goeth before destruction . and a  haughty spirit before a fall.
