 Iii  \    \ /   Legislative Library  Th/f ���������/���������������������������*,  and  OCT  9  i9ii: J~\  Kettle Valley Orchardist-  17TH YEAR���������No   49  GRAND FORKS   B. ,C��������� FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1918   V  $1.00 PER YEAR  THE PROVINCIAL  TAX SALEOFLAND  Rossland Paper . Says the  Printing of the List Is  Bcin^ "Farmed Out"--  Taxpayers Kept in Dark  For some time it has been known  that a tax sale would be held soon  of Lhe lands upon which taxes are  owing to the provincial government,  government agents everywhere being busy of late in arranging the  lists for publication.  It now appears lhat the government is to play a sneaking trick on  the property owners and "slip one  over on 'em."  Take Rossland for instance. Plow  many Rossland property owners  will know whether or not their lands  are offered for sale. The publication  of the Rossland list has been "farmed  out" to a paper which we venture  to say has not even a dozen readers  , in this section, and which is not  published in this district.  The Daily Miner never as much  as expended a postage stamp in an  endeavor to secure this business.  ��������� The list properly belonged to the  paper published in the district and  in justice to the taxpayers should  have been published in the Daily  Miner, which is generally read, not  only because the taxpayers would  have been in a position to protect  their interests, but also because the  government would have had that  publicity of the list wnich would  have brought them the returns  which an advertiser most desires���������  if they desired this. Bui it appears  they do not want the property owners to know what is going on. No  other object can be figured out of  the manipulation, except it may be  political trading.  It appears also the plan s general  that the government is struggling  hard in manipulating matters that  they may hold on in the general  election, which is forecasted to be  held next spring before the soldiers  overseas can return and assert themselves in their determination to run  affairs of state as they desire them  to be run after they have made the sacrifices they have in protecting their  homes and the Dominion against  greed,  It can not be said that the Daily  Miner is disappointed in not publishing the business. We knew if  there was any possible hocusrpocus  by which the manipulators could  keep the business away from ^this  paper it would be done, but we are  calling the attention of the people to  the rank injustice of the matter  : which is so vastly important to  everyone, especially those property  and mfhe claim owners, who are absent from the city at present, who  have interests hereabouts, may be  engaged in mining or prospecting,  but who take the home paper while  they are away that they may know  what is going on here, and that they  may know what to do to protect their  interests when such matters arise.  Ask   yourself   if  the square deal  which was promised everyone when  votes is forthcoming. The Ddilv  Miner has no fight with the government, but when it does those things  which demand that the taxpayers  shall be weaned, this paper will  criticize, and when anything is |uo-  dertaken in the interests of the people this paper will as readily give  the government credit for tbe same.  Our advice to the taxpayers of the  Rossland district is to make enquiry  of the government agent as to  the status of their holdings lest this  scheming should result disastrously  for them.and their property be lost,  or that they will be put to unnecessary expense at a time when few  can afford to have additional burdens placed upon them ��������� Rossland  Daily Miner.        ~  CONTRIBUTORS  Subscriptions Amounting  to $499.80 Collected in  the Gity for the Army  Hut Fund  News of the City  In an auto collision near the  Hardy bridge on Monday afternoon  there was one person slightly  wounded on the casualty list.

The use of small potatoes taken  from the bulk of the crop, year  after year, and used for seed will  eventually lead to yields of inferior  potatoes.  At potato digging time the great  opportunity for seed --election is offered. With the product of each  plant spread on the soil it isau easy  matter to select out those plants  that have given the largest yield of  the most desirable type of potato  and are free from disease The potatoes from such plants only, should  he gathered and saved for use as  seed the following year: This saving  of seed at digging time may seem to  many as an extra burdeu during a  rush of work, but it is not  There is less actual labor attached  to seed selection a   the time  of   the  potato harvest than there is by practicing any other method of s^e-t selection.     Furthermore,    tbe  results  from    hill   selection, are reasonably  certain, while  with   other   methods  there is  some  speculation.    Potato  growers   would do   well    to   watch  closely for exceptionally good plants  These, harvested  and   saved   apart  from the main crop, may become the  grand dads of fine   potato   fields   in  tne future.  Fruit Markets Bulletin  Says Yes,and Gives Reasons Why Apples Will  Not Be Any Gheaper  CUSTOMS RECEIPTS  R. R. Gilpin, customs officer at  this port, makes the following detailed report of the customs receipts  at the head office in this city and at  the various sub-customs offices, for  the month of September,  1918:  Grand Forks   81,051.59  Carson       313.01  Phoenix        133.17  Cascade        120.65  Total ,:  S1.61S.-I2  We meet a decidedly strong opinion among prairie jobbers that apple  prices are likely to slip from present  quotations, says the Markets Bulletin. There is nothing in the outlook  so far as we can see to support them  in holding this opinion. They con  tend that the high prices will limit  consumption. This argument can  not hold good with the No. 1 grad-:,  as the bulk of the crop in this class  is already sold. These are used mostly for fancy trade and by those who  afford to pay. It becomes a matter of  price tb.en for tbe second and third  grade apples. Last year there were  25 per cent more apples produced  in the Northwestern states, where  our competition comes from, and  British Columbia reports 10 per  cent less crop. If the consumption  is somewhat less, so is the available  supply.. The shortage of small fruit  has been general on both sides of the  line. Sugar shortage has limited  home canning considerably and the  apple is the fruit more than any  other that does not depend' on tbe  sugar supply for its sale.  Car shortage was   largely   responsible for the slip in   pjices   last November.   This year there   is   no   car  shortage aeported.    Eastern    buyers  are niore active   than    formerly   in  in   Washington,   and    last   week   a  block of 150 cars of ppples was purchased by them.   C grade or  No. .'3  apples are quoted today at SI.40   f.  o.h. Yakima, and at this price there  is   little   chance of   any coming to  Canada until   the British  Columbia  supply has been exhausted.   Industrial activity together with  the  improved busiuess outlook at   the  Pacific coast will iticrease^the   demand  for   apples   on    the   home market.  Ontario  has   bought, or   will   buy,  about 100 cars more of   our   apples  than they did last year. Apples, like  everything else, are  a  little   higher  than   last   year,   but  where can be  found a cheaper substitute for them  in the food list that is haif as popular and health-giving.  There is only one factor that can  serionsly interfere with the apple  consumption on the prairies, and  that is delay in buying and shipping  to small points until severe frost  prevents it.  A. D.

C-  ' OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1918  Canadian patriotism demands the  practice  of thrift by  all her sons.   Tho men who arc  holding  the  lines  at home are thoy who are  making it easy for the business of the country  to cro on with little jar to its mechanism.   The  steady pulling together of all citizens  in  the  ��������� production of goods and in the  conservation  of all field crops marks the thrifty nation. Sav-  in������7 on  the part of our citizens is going to be  the greatest insurance we will have in Canada  against a period of depression  after  the  war.  The combined capital of the  individuals who  make the country will form a fund of sufficient  power to drive business along in a most satisfying way in spite  of of all prevailing  hard  times of  such   a  period.    The saving man is  therefore a real patriot.   He has Canada's interests fundamentally at heart.   May his tribe  increase in these days when   wealth  is  piling  up under the spur of war-time  efforts.    Save  because it hits both.ways. It is.a high form of  patriotism. And it gives one's country, a leg up  in   a  critical   time.   Put by that extra dollar  now. The long  procession   of thrifty   dollars  will make a line  that  will   not  waver���������Hin-  flenburg or no. Hindenburg.  taken from the land in large numbers. The call  to call to those remaining is much louder than  ever before. It is more insistent, and its demands must be heeded. The full dinner pail  is but a memory for millions on this earth. It  can be filled sufficiently to keep life going, but  it can only befilled-by you. It can't be done  in Europe. Not until the Hun is hammered  into submission, not until peace is declared,  and commerce resumes its wonted way can we  let up for a minute. Get the plows on the land.  Keep them working day and night. Turn  over more acres of land. JThis can be done.  You have the patriotism, the courage, and the  heroism to do it.    Plough.  f-  Every ounce of every allied nation's strength  is in the hands and brains and hearts of the  individuals of each nation because they are  free peoples.  The charge has been made by a number of  papers in the Kootenays and in other sections of the province that the provincial government is "farming out" the printing of the  delinquent tax sale lists for political"- support.  If the government by this method .should gain  one-tenth the number of votes that it will lose  by holding the sale it will be exceedingly fortunate.  :^\  Conserve Your Eyesight  No. one can estimate the extent to. which we must depend upon  our eyesight to win this war..

WEBER^ (^Manager  The attention of the Canada food board has  been called to the practice frequently adopted  by licensed dealers in apples, turnips, potatoes,  and other fruits and vegetables, of having men  living in different parts of the country acting  as their agents, buying or'contracting such  produce, superintending the loading of same  on cars ready for shipment, and receiving a  commission from said dealers for such work.  All such agents operating in the manner mentioned, without first having secured a license  from the board, are doing so contrary to the  order dated 13th day of December, 1917,  wherein it states: "That on and after the 1st  day of February, 1918, no person shall deal  wholesale in fresh fruits or fresh vegetables  without first having obtained a license from  the food controller,"and in violating such order  are gulity of an offence and subject to a penalty not to exceed $1000 and not less than $100.

There are about 300 girl ambuVunce drivers  in the Red Cross service in,* France. The only  other women ambulance drivers in France belong to the first aid nursing yeomanry corps.  There is a friendly ������������������rivalry among the Red  Cross girls in the matter of keeping their  '-'bus" spick and span. Whenever a trainload  of wounded arrives the Red Cross girls must  be on hand, and this means constant duty, day  and night. Exceptionally good driving is a  characteristic of each girl, and before undertaking this dangerous and arduous work a  girl is required to pass a severe test at Devonshire house. Among other things she must,  know how to attain speed without jolting the  wounded,as a bit of rough eriving might prove  fatal to the poor lad. Tenderness linked with  courage of thc finest and highest kind is always found in the girl ambulance driver. Ten  shillings a  week   with  expenses is tlie pay.

Does,  the price matter ?  ���������       ���������        ���������       ���������  It may be so great as to  stagger the imagination���������a sum beyond the possible.  But does anyone ask, "Can we do it ?"  Money or no money, they do it.    And somehow they pay.  It may mean doing without things they  think they need. It may mean privations,  sacrifices, hardships. They make unbelievable  savings, they achieve the impossible, but they  get the money to pay.  ���������        *        * -    ���������    .  To-day in this critical period of our nationhood, there is imperative need for MONEY���������  vast sums of money.  Only one way now remains to obtain it.  ��������� The nation must save, every community,  every family, every individual Canadian must  save.  If anyone says "I cannot save" let him consider to  what extent he would pinch himself to relieve the sufferings of a loved one at home; and surely he would not  pinch less for our fighting brothers in France.  Without suffering actual privations, nearly every  family in Canada can reduce its standard of living, can  practice reasonable thrift, can make cheerful sacrifice to  enrich the life-blood of the nation.  You who read this, get out pencil and paper NOW.  Set down the items of your living expense. Surely you  will find some items there you can do without.  Determine to do without them.  Start TO-DAY. Save your money so that you may be  in a position to lend it to your country in its time of need.

Good news spreads rapidly and druggists here are kept busy dispensing  freezone, the ether discovery of a Cincinnati man, "which is said to loosen  any corn so it lifts out with the fingers.  Ask at any pharmacy for a quarter  ounce of freezone, which will cost very  little, but is said to be sufficient to rid  one's feet of every hard or soft corn or  callus. .  You apply just a few drops on the  tender, aching corn and instantly the  soreness ia relieved, and soon the corn  Is so snriveled that it lifts out without pain. It is a sticky substance  which dries when applied and never  inflames or oven irritates the adjoining tissue.

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  Ave 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  name 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   ro-  ?uires land in conjunction with his  arm, without actual occupation, provided statutory improvements made and  residence maintained on Crown granted  land.  Unsurveyed areas, not exceeding 20  acres, may be leased as homesites;  title to be obtained after fulfilling residential  and  improvement conditions.  For grazing and industrial purposes,  areas exceeding G10 acres may be leased  by one person or company.  PRE-EMPTORS' FREE GRANTS ACT.  The scope of this Act is enlarged to  include all persons joining and serving  with His Majesty's Forces. The time  within which the heirs or devisees of a  deceased pre-emptor may apply for  title under this Act is extended from  one year from the death of such person,  as formerly, until one year after the  conclusion of the present war. This  privilege  is also  made retroactive.  TOWNSITE  PROPERTY ALLOTMENT  ACT.  Provision is made for the grant to  por-sons holding uncompleted Agreements to Purchase from the Crown of  such proportion of the land, if divisible,  as the payments already made will  cover in proportion to the sale price of  the whole parcel. Two or more persona  holding such Agreements may group  their interests and apply for a proportionate allotment jointly. If 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 e.lso 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  the 1st day of May, 1919. Any application made after this date will not be  considered. These allotments apply to  town lots and lands of the Crown sold  at public auction:  For information apply to any Provincial  Government Agent or to  G. R.
