Six of  i he ten boxes had been found to be  ; in good condition. The defective  ones had been repaired. Carl Wol-  f'-om, of the Grand Porks brewery,  had applied for a reduction in his  water rate after the first of' December, as after that date the��������� government would not,allow him to brew  any more 2 per cent beer. The  council reduced Mr. Wolfram's  water rate to So for December.  On motion of Aid. Harkness and  Webster, the chief of police was instructed to test the fire alarm boxes  every thirty days, and the hydrants  semi-annually, and if any of the  former were found to be defective,,  to,get the city electrician to repair  them.  The council appointed two aldermen, who will sit, with the mayor,  in the city hall on December 10, at  I p.m., as a court of revision to revise lhe,municipal voters' list.  , Mayor Acres and all the alder  men were present .-at the regular  meeting of the city council on Monday evening.  A long communication was read  from C. H. Dunbar, Kamloops, dis  trict land registrar, quoting prices  for ,furnishing municipalities with  names of registered land ownees in  cities and other information regarding assessment rolls. Action on the  matter was deferred.  A communication was read from  the Union of Canadian Municipalities urging city councils to promote  the consumption of fish in order to  save beef and bacon for the troops  at the front, and suggesting that a  Standing committee be appointed to  take charge of this propaganda. The  council appointed Aid..Webster and  Harkness as a committee to supervise this department.  The chairman of the finance committee reported.that\S30,00Q .of .the.  sinking fund had been invested in  two year Canadian war bonds, and  that a safety deposit box had been  rented in the Bank of Commerce to  keep them in. The report was adopted, and the city treasurer was designated as the only person who should  nave access to the box.  The chairman of the finance com  inittee al soreported that the  Grand  Forks Transfer company had agreed  to remove the coal which had proven  unsatisfactory to the council.  The clerk was instructed to write  the Grand Forks Transfer company  and request them to paint their coal  shed near the Kettle Valley depot,  as per agreement when permission  was given them to erect it.  The chairman of the hoard of  works recommended that certain old  sidewalks at the head of Winnipeg  avenue in Columbia be removed.  Referred to the chairman of the  board of works.  Health Oflicer Kingston reported  that this was the ihird week of the  epidemic of the contagious disease  now prevalent in our city. There  had been 3o cases up to the present  time; 8 patients had been discharged as cured, and there were  now 10 cases in the isolation hospi  tal. In instances where all the members of a family had caught the disease, they had been quarantined at  their homes. All the cases were of  a very mild character, and the disease was now fully   under   control.  He felt confident that all   the cases' boys  want  gloves,   not   socks.

Murray Janes has written the  following letter from somewhere in  Frauco to his friend, Harry Binion,  in this city:  "Your welcome letter came two  days ago.

I was doing sentry  duty on an aeroplane of ours���������one  that.Jiad to come down on account of  engine trouble. 1 was one of a party  of four to guard the machine. There  was "quite a crowd of rubber necks  around, and among the buuch I saw  the Terrible Swede of the Traun-  wciser ranch, Mr. Larson, the boob  that fell heir to Al.'s old auto. I says  to liirrrf 'Hosv in h��������� did you get over  here]' 'Oh, I just come over,' says he,  as soberly as a Grand Forks police  magistrate. The sight of La.ison in  khaki almost gave me a shell shock.  This  world is not so  large, after  all.  "So poor old S������������������ is out of a job.  Well, tell him to join the artillery.  It is a very quiet unit to be in, and  he would make an Al ramrod; or we  could use him in the infantry as a  pull-through.  "This is the worst part of the world  I have yet been in. The mud is something awful. But the little old war  goes on just the same. iS'ight and  day the big guns never stop. I do  not see how the Hun stands the terrible artillery fire that wo hand him  constantly.  "I have not got your parcel yet,  but it will come all o.k.

During the time  the tribunal was in session, forty  applicants were exempted' on account of medical category; thirteen  were granted temporary exemptions;  three were exempted from combatant service; thirteen Americans,  Doukhobors and Italians were exempted, and thirteen applications  for exemption were disallowed.  Seventeen men in Grand Forks reported for service  DID NOT FIND MOSES;  BTJLLRUSHES CONE  Hubert F. Broad, who  went   over  seas with one of the first  contingents  from Grand Forks,   has   written    the  following  interesting  letter   to J. H.  Ryley in this city:  " .  .   . 'I am now with  the   Egyptian expeditionary force, having come  over  here   for   the* winter  offensive,  and I am on my way up to   the  line,  having been stuck in the hospital   for  some weoks with malaria.   I can't say  that I am very sorry to leave Salonika;  but, really, it's   far more    unpleasant  over here���������am not   struck   on    sandy  deserts,   anyway.    I   am  writing this  on the desert in Arabia, not far   from  the canal.   We saw a good deal of the  delta coming up in the train, and the  vegetation under irrigation   was  marvelous.    They   were   growing  nearly  all corn and cotton, and just harvest  ing the latter,taking it away on either  very small donkeys or on  tall, skinny  camels   The only trees that   we   saw  were   some date   palms,    which   just  now have from 20 to   100  pounds   of  fruit on and look quite   nice,   as   the  fruit is either deep red or golden   yel  low, and a few small   bananas   growing   in    the   lowlands.    The   natives  looked very clean, and are hard work  crs.  We   passed   over   the   Nile, but  Moses was evidently not found   there,  as    there  were   no   bullrushes.     The  country   here is all   Hat sand, with a  lot of solt lakes, and   lies   below    the  level of the canal    The transports look  rather weird at   night   steaming  this  have left there now. Well, I'm-afraid  there is not much news to tell you,  butl like to keep in touch with Grand  Forks. I suppose there really is a  chance of the war being over inside  another year; but then the biggest  thing they will have to face will be  the demobilization of the troops. I'm  afraid things will be pretty flat in  England after the war. ... I hope  you are all pulling along in Grand  Forks, and that we shall all be back  there soon."

"Complaint is made that America,  while ostensibly fighting for democracy abroad, is not practicing  democracy at home.  "It is .asserted that since we de:  clared war against Germany nearly  all the important acts of our government, from the conscription of  men and the commandeering of food  supplies to the restriction of free  press and free speech, have been derogatory of democratic principles.  "It is charged that we have  even  invaded the palladium of   Christian  youth   and   persuaded   the  Young  Men's Christian association  to lend  its   comforting   influences   to   this  a  bloody strife.  "All this may be true. But, my  friends, a democratic government  in peace can not be a democratic  government in war.  "Democracy is government by the  consent of the governed. War is  government by force at the command of the governors. War is arbitrary power; democracy is paternal  peace.  '���������They are positive and negative  elements of motion in the mentality  of mankind and gladiators in the  arena of physical authority.  "Moreover, if we should apply the  benevolent rules of democracy as a  resisting force, against the marshaled  hordes of German plutocracy, we  would lose this war, and with it the  citadel of democracy for all time to  conic.

It must   seiz"  our sons for fhditers and our cereals; and maximum temperature for each  to feed them, and    commandeer   all j day   during   the   past    week, as re-  corded by the government therinom-  HASE AFT  MAN SP!  Captured in Ferry  County  by Two Secret Service Men  According to the following exciting  chase, copied from the Keller Eagle,  German spies are hiding pretty close  to home:  The first real gunfire of the war on  this reservation.occurred a few days  ago at Twin Lakes, northeast of Keller, where two secret, service men  from the east arrested a German  bomb thrower after he had fired fourteen shots from automatic guns.  The prisoner was taken to Myers  Falls, and from there by train to the  scenes of his pro-German operations  in New York. The Statesman Index,  of Colville, gives a detailed account  of the long chase of the secret service  men for this. German spy and dynamite plotter.  The secret service men came to  Colville and hired an auto and driver  and went to Myers Falls. From there  they entered the reservation at Inch-  lium, and drove to Twin Lakes, where  at a certain point they ordered the car  stopped; got. out and , handed the.  driver a gun, telling they were after  a man and if he attempted to pass the  car to shoot him.  The officers were armed   with   car-  bines and  automatics when they   left  the car.  After a   considerable    search  the   firing    began    and   the  German  bomb   man    surrendered   after firing  fourteen shots without effect.  '   "You   might be able   to pull   off  that kind of rough stuff'over   in   Armenia, but   you   can't raise hell over  here in the United  States," said   one  of the secret service men, and that was  about all    that was  said, according to  Clyde   Cammerer, the driver   of   the  car.   Mr. Cammerer signed   a government  voucher and   received   S27.50  for auto service, and the men   depart-,  ed with the prisoner.  According to the Statesman Index,  the Spokane secret service otlice knew  nothing of the affair. But that might  be expected. The men who made the  arrest were from the east; had been  chasing the German dynamiter for  weeks; had learned of his whereabouts  and came and took him.

If the Union government is  defeated  on December 1.7, a  U'reat deal of the blame for the  defeat will have .to be shifted  to the shoulders of members  of the government.   The people are being exhorted, daily  and weekly through the press,  to exercise the severest thrift  in   the, conservation  of  food  and money, in  order that the  soldiers  at the  front may be  fed and the government supplied   with  funds with which  to car.iy on the war.    This  is  good  advice,  and Canadians  everywhere  are stoically but  cheerfully complying with   it.  They are willing to make  any  sacrifice   to   assure   ultimate  victory to'British  arms.   But  they   expect   that   those   in  power should also forego some  of their luxuries.    When they  see ministers  of the   government,   out on   electioneering  tours,    traveling   in     private  It very often happens- that  the person who practices in-'  justice against others, raises  the loudest howl of protest-  when-an act of injustice is  committed against himself.

A decade ago the president  of   the   Atchison,  Topeka &  Santa Fe railroad, E. P. Pip-  ley, said:   "I  am   thoroughly  convinced that I shall live   to  see railroads of the country in  the  control   of the   government-."   He1 was  then   sixty-  two.   "The signs may   not be  plain to you, but tht-y  are   to  me."   'This remark was made  to "Boersianer,"  who,   in. his-  article on the subject of the  future of the railroads,  which  appears in -Heart's   Magazine  for December,   draws  sisjnifi-  cant conclusions   based   on a  searching    analysis    of!     the  whole range of events, affecting'tiie financial status of the  railroads of the United States  since the beginning of the war  in Europe.  trains, ...with-' reti ernes, of  pri  vat.csecretaries,stenographers,  porters, cooks ondothei^ s^r  vants, they naturally begin to  wonder why-they should make  all   the   sacrifices,  while   the  men whom they have engaged  to transact their   business are  living lavishly   on everything  that money can buy. There is  room for economy in  governmental circles.    Some of  the  ministers now out campaign-  ing, bv. their luxurious man-  ner of traveling and livmg,are  making  more   votes   for   the  opposition    candidates   than  for   the   government,  and   if  Sir Pobert is desirous  of retaining power he  should   induce   them   to return   to Ottawa.    The Sun offers this advice because it believes  that,  at the   present  critical  stage  of the war, the return   of the  Union government would best  serve the empire.  Mr. Trotsky's denunciation'  of the United States deminds  one of the dog who bit the  hand that fed him.  The Canadian Pacific railway is getting its due amount  of advertising out of Mr.  Shaughnessy's bluff that, if  certain conditions eventuate,  the company will invest ten  million dollars in Victory  bonds. There is nothing out  of the ordinary in this proposition. Had Mr. Shaughnessv  worked all his life as a section  hand at two dollars pov  day,  The food controller is   well  aware that in many .. homes ol  the Dominion very coiisiueea-  ble  economics  in   food, have  been effected voluntarily since  the war began.   In thousands  of other homes high prices  of  food have compelled   the   ut  most   economy   in    selection  and   in   apportionment to the  various members of the  family.    The food controller  aims  that, as far as possible,   there  should be sufficient and.sir a-  ble   food   for   the   people of  Canada atfcprices which are no  higher   than   are   absolutely  necessary under present conditions of supply and  cost  of  production.   Seventy per cent  of the people of Canada areas  thrifty and careful as   any  in  the world. They consume but  little or no more than is necessary to maintain   their physical  strength.    The food con-  troller does not ask these people to reduce   their consumption, beiny the amount necessary to maintain their efficiency,   but he  does ask them to  substitute other foods  as   far  as   possible   for* wheat, beef  and bacon, which are   needed  the     soldiers     overseas,  lore   is   still a  considerable  minority of the people of Canada  who   can   and should reduce   their   consumption    of  ov  and then offered to invest to*  millions in Victory bonds, wo| food bv similar livin'-.-.

Saturday last Scotty was pushing  an old, heavily loaded wheelbarrow  along Winnipeg avenue. The axle  of'the 'barrow was bent and twisted,  and.the load made the vphicle wobble like a drunken sailor The weight  of the load naturally bad a tendency  to induce Scotty to follow the gyrations of the wheelbarrow.  A minister of gospel, who had  walked behind Scotty for half a  njock, raised a warning hand and  sternly remarked, '-Young man, you  need prohibition "  ��������� "It's not me that needs prohibition," answered Scotty, ''it's the  w-w-wheelbarrow."

"The Canadians in France,"  A Great War Map  Canadian homes will no longer have  diflicnlty in following the Canadian  troops in France. There has just been  issued a map of the European war-  area that clearly .shows every point of  interest that has been mentioned in  dispaches since the Canadian forces  first lanclerl in France. It has been  made especially for the great Canadian weekly, the Family Herald and*  Weekly Star ��������� of Montreal, and is a  credit indeed' to Candian enterprise.  It is a marvel of detail and yet not,  crowded. It is in four colors and  about 24-x3K^eet and folded into a  very neat cover, about 5x10 inches  The map is surrounded by a border of  the regimental badges and coat of  arms of nearly every battalion that  left Canada, from Halifax to Vancouver. Every important point can  be recognized at once. That portion  of the map covering France is in a  soft color with names of towns and  battle-scenes in black, easily recog  nizable. The map is endorsed by returned military experts as most complete and accurate in detail. The map  could not be produced, except in such  large quantities as The Family Herald  will use, at less than two dollars a  copy, yet it can be had absolutely  free with The_ Family Herald.  The publishers of The Family Her  aid and Weekly Star for several  months back have been lighting hard  against the necessity of increasing  their subscription rates, but eventu  ally had to come to it like most other  papers The increase, howevev, is a  mere trifle���������twenty five cents a year,  making their new rate $1.25���������and  with the year's subscription they will  include a copy of this great war map  free of charge. This is certainly a generous offer, and one that Canadians  will appreciate. Many expected a  much larger increase, in the subscription price of The Family Herald, and  are surprised at the small extra  amount charged.  The enormous circulation of The  Family Herald afid Weekly Star  should be still greater when this offer  becomes known.
