Harkness,  McCalluin, McCabe and McDonald  were present at the regular meeting  of the city council on Tuesday night,  which had been adjourned from the  previous evening to allow the members  to participate in the big peace celebration.  A communication was read from  Attorney General Farris, statin" that  the appointment of a police magistrate for Grand Forks had been made.  The chairman of the finance committee reported that the committee  had met and had decided to recommend to the cpuucil that the traders'  license bylaw be strictly enforced.

The usual grist of monthly accounts  were ordered to be paid.  Tho chairman of the water and  oommittee reported that 350 feet ol  1-inch pipe on Garden avenue had  been replaced by 4-iuch pipe, which  allowed the cutting out of 450 feet of  wooden pipe on Cecil and.

At noon last Monday/when  the news reached Grand Forks  that the German delegates had  signed the armistice dictated  by the commander-in-chief of  the allied armies, Gen. Foch,  Mayor Acres at once proclaimed a civic half holiday,  and plans were set in' motion  for the greatest jollification  the city has ever known.  The first thing on the program was a parade of the automobiles in the city. The  start was made at about 3  o'clock, and the route of the  procession was around the  loop, the town of Danville,  across the line, being visited.  There were over a hundred  cars in line. They were all  gaily decorated, and they presented a fine spectacle. The  continual noise of their ; horns  kept pedestrians . warned of  their approach. One carried  a big liberty bell, which constantly announced that allied  victory held been, achieved.  In the evening jollification  proceedings were resumed  early. The autos and their  horns were again much in evidence. The streets were brilliantly illuminated with hundreds of extra electric lights.  These   were    reinforced    by  War Ended  at 3  o'Clock  Monday  Afternoon,  Pacific Time  Victory Loan Subscriptions Amount to $155,-  000���������Expect to Reach  $200,000 .

The money is still coming in  in a steady stream, and the  canvassing committee feels  confident that when the campaign closes tomorrow night  the subscriptions will total  $200,000.

The noise from fire-  ciaukers and auto horns was  deafening, but in spite of this  the person who did not blow  his own horn was looked upon  with suspicion. The women  made as much noise as the  men,' and, as is usually the  case, the rising generation  made as much as tlie rest of  the world.

Records will be granted covering only  land suitable for agricultural purposes  and which is non-timber land.  Partnership pre-emptions abolished,  but parties of not more than four may  arrange for adjacent pre-emptions, with  joint residence, but each making necessary improvements on respective claims.  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. Title  cannot be obtained on these claims in  less than 5 years, with improvements of  $10 per acre, including 5 acres cleared  and cultivated, and residence of at  least 2 years.  Pre-emptor holding Crown Grant may  record another pre-emption, if he requires land in conjunction with his  farm, without actual occupation, provided statutory improvements made and  residence maintained on Crown granted  land.

"IMPROVING"  MR.  WILSON'S ENGLISH  In Mr. Wilson's note of October 15  to Germany is this passage:  Cities and villages, if not destroyed, are being stripped of all they  ���������ontain not only, but often of their  vwy inhabitants. '  The unusual placing of "not only,"  Mr Wilson's fclicitious refusal to  make it follow ".stripped," the em  pha^is derived from its later place,  are evident Just as Dante forced  woids to say what he meant them to  say, Mr. Wilson arranges them so  that they speak with the .most   force.  Who could have thought that in  friendly, gallant Canada these few  lines in Mr. Wilson's note would hud  a bit of correction, reviaion, excision  such-as his writings have probably  not been subjected to since he was an  undergraduate at Princeton, and the  professor of rhetoiic was nnwontedly  severe, having ravaged his chin, perhaps, at shaving time? The Montreal  Gazette restricts its correction to removing "not only" from the station  to which Mr Wilson appointed it  and making it a buffer phrase between "stripped" and "if," ".-tripped  not only of all they contain." This is  a piece of orthodox "restoration."  The judicious corrector for the press  keeps in mind, however, that to  change an extraordinary position of  words is probably to disregard the deliberate intention of the writer.  in the Toronto Globe's version "not  only" has disappeared, and "bnt  often" is replaced by "and oftentimes," a poetical substitute. Surely  these Canadian recensions come from  mo whitnsoy of the wires, but from  the benevolent: and honest desire to  "improve" Mr. Wilson's English --  New York Times,  By No Moans Useless  It would not be easy to find a more  exacting test of a foreigner's mastery  of English than his ability to write  correctly from dictation the following  sentence that Tit Bits quotes for the  purpose:  As Hugh Hughes was hewing a  yule log from a yew tree, a man  dressed in clothes of a dark hue came  tup to Hugh and said, "Have you seen  nay ewes?"  "if you will wait until I   hew   this  ^--t-:^?^-?^^  I  W5^  Of Canada's total production in the calendar year 1917, of copper,  lead and zinc, amounting- to $35,750,000, British Columbia produced  $21,350,000.  For the fiscal year ending March 31st, 1918, Canada sold on  credit to Great Britain and the; Allies more than $46,000,000 worth  of metals, the greater part of which were produced\ from the  mines of British Columbia. . . That was more than three times the  average  exports for the three preceding  The Victory Loan 1917 made this  production possible because it enabled  Canada to give credit to Great-Britain  and the allies for their metal purchases  in this country.  Without this market the mines and  smelters of British Columbia could not  have sold their outputs.  But the mines have had a market  for their ores. The smelters have  turned out tremendous quantities of  copper, lead and zinc.  This production . has not only  brought prosperous times to the miners  but it has been a mighty factor in helping to win the war, fax these metals  were absolutely necessary to the production of munitions in both Canada  and Europe.

(JUST ARRIVED  IS ews of the City  Neil McCallum on Friday last  received official notice from Victoria  of his appointment as police magistrate of Grand Forks  Kokanpes are now being shipped  from Christioa lake to this city in  great quantities. They are of an unusually large size this year, and the  (isb eaters aie happy.  A. E. Savage and L^o Mader  returned to h- city lastS-vturday for  the winter. Tbey have been engaged in mining in Camp McKin-  uey during the pa-t summer, and  before closing down for tbe season  they shipped a carload of concentrates to tbe Granby smelter.  Everybody blew their   own   born  on Monday night.  The first carload of ore from tbe  Rock Candy mine was shipded  from Lynch creek to Trail on Wednesday. The ore was packed on  horseback from tbe mine to the  Humming Bird siding.  Pte. Jack Todd, who was employed in the CP.R. roundhouse  before he enlisted, returned from  overseas on Saturday. He lost a leg  in France.  P. C. Peterson returned on Satur  day from a business trip to Spo  kane.  On its weekly trip to Lynch  Creek on Wednesday, the Kettle  Valley train brought down nine carloads ol freight���������tive of lumber, one  ore and three of wood.  Joe Cunningham returned to   bis  home in Phoenix on Monday  Charles King had a successful  auction sale at Rock Creek last  week, and this week King Charles  abdicated.  Not on the Muster Roll  During the British advance on  Jericho, says the American Medical  Journal, an enemy shell struck an  ancient tomb and revealed a skeleton. When the official archaeologists  attached to the British staff made  their investigation the evidence  seemed to indicate that the skeleton  was that of a historical figure, John  of Antioch. Accordingly, tbey dispatched a cable to the war office in  London:  "Have discovered skeleton supposed to be that of Jon of Antioch."  The war office replied: "Can not  trace John Antioch. Send identification disk."  A Golonial * 'Parasite''  Spinsterhood seems to be a most  fashionable state nowadays wben so  many girls are economically independent. It might be even more in  favor.in these meatless days if a  certain custom, .originated in colonial times by a father of several girls,  were universally practiced. He gave  each unmarried daughter a birthday  present of a pound of beef, and each  year addtd a pound to the weight of  the gift. Wheu tbe roast that he gave  to one of the girls tipped considerably-  more than twenty pounds, the father  waxed impatient.  "If you afe not gone within the  year," he said to tbe young woaiau,  with humorous exaggeration, "I  shall have to drive in the whole  bf-ast."

But���������  that is no reason why you cannot go to a bank and borrow  moneyto buy Victory Bonds.  If you are a steady, industrious, thrifty citizen, worldng and  saving a part of your income, you are just the kind of person  Canada's chartered banks stand ready to help to-day.  Any bank will lend you as much money as you can save  during the next twelve months, with which to buy Victory  Bonds.  All you have to do is to pay ten per cent, of the amount you  want to buy and deposit the receipt for that ten per cent, in the  bank.  The bank will lend you the 90 per cent, balance at 5}^ per  cent, interest and will give you a year to repay it, the interest  you get on your bond being just the same as the bank charges  you.  This is a fine opportunity for you to begin a real savings  account, to make a first class investment and to help your  country at the same time.  Why not see a banker to-day���������he will tell you all about it  and you will be glad of the advice and help he can give you.
