The commissioner totally  disagrees in this, and recommends  tightening up instead.  This year our packing houses have  raised their standard very materially and the orchardist must1 follow  suit or take No. 2 prices. The commissioner is informed that some  growers   are   crating   their   apples; Roc]c Caody Concentrator  Makes the Biggest Ship-  SHIPS- FOUR CARS  OF FLUORSPAR  September was as follows: War  savings 33, $132;- thrift 112, $28;  total, $160. ���������  There are some features connected with the scheme to install a  gravity irrigation system by bringing the water across the international boundary line that might render  the project impractical at the iast  moment. For instance, the international negotions may prove insurmountable, or the Great Northern  Railway company may refuse to  give a right of way for the ditch on  its right of way, or the cost of the  system may be prohibitive. Any  single one of these possibilities  .'.. would cause a complete breakdown  of the scheme, and leave the farmers groping in darkness. To guard  against such eventualities, it has  been suggested that the people of  the valley put their eggs in two  baskets.  A number of people have drawn  the editor's attention to an alternative scheme. (These people may become offended by our persistence in  calling it an alternative scheme.  They maintain that it is the scheme;  and they may be right at that. But  "-at present we do not think it would  be wise to put a stumbling block in  the way of the original scheme.)  The advocates of the latest pro  jeet propose to take the water from  the North Fork; to use the smelt*jr  'lake, and convert Ward's lake into  a huge reservoir. Mrs. Perkins, who  owns this lake, is willing to donate  it for the cause of irrigation, and as  much land as may be required for  enlarging it.  Tbe originators of this system  claim that there is enough water in  the North Fork to irrigate every  acreoflandin the valley, besides  supplying the city with water by a  gravity system; that the water can  be raised to a higher level than by a  ditch from Curlew; that international complications will be avoided,  aud that the system can be installed  at a much lower cost than could be  done if the water were diverted from  the main river at Curlew.  The opponents of this scheme put  forth the objection that the Granby  company owns all the water in the  North Fork. We have been assured  by legal authority that the Granby's  right to any water in that stream is  problematical, and that any title the  company may claim to it would not  hold good if it did not make some  practical use of the water when it  might be required for agriculture.  As wc understand this question,  water rights have been abolished  and water usera obtain their supply  by special ticenses, and the requirements of agriculture take precedence over all dther industries.  orchard run and marking them  No  2.

TO PRINT  UNEilPLOfMEIT  THE BOSS WHO  WASN'T A BOSS  Once upon a time, runs a modem  fable, a youth'about to embark on  the sea of matrimony went'to his  father and said:  . "Father, who should be boss, I or  my wife?"  The old man smiled and said:  "Here are one hundred hens and  a team of horses. Hitch up the  horses, put the hens into the wagon,  and wherever you find a man and  his wife dwelling stop and make en  quiries as to who is boss.  "Wherever you find a woman run-,  ning things leave.a.ben. If you  come to a place where a man is in  control give him one of tbe horses,"  After ninety-nine hens had been  disposed of he came to a ho*use and  made the usual inquiry.  "I'm boss of this farm," said  the  man.  So   tbe   wife was called, and she  affirmed her husband's assertion.  "Take which ever horse you  want," was the boys reply.  So the husband replied, "I'll take  the bay."  But the wife did not like the bay  horse and called her husband aside  and talked to him. He returned and  said:  "I believe I'll take the grey  horse."  "Not much," said the young man.  ''You get a hen."  The Kettle Valley train oh Wed  nesday brought down four cars of  fluorspar concentrates from the Consolidated company's millat Lynch  Creek. This is the largest shipment  that has yet been made from the  Rock Candy property, and they will  undoubtedly be still further aug  mented in the future.  Hon. J.   D.

This is just as much a war year as  last year was, as far as the money is;  concerned. Pressing liabilities incurred by the war and involving  vast sums of money have to be cared  for. The simplest and most profitable manner in which this can be  done is for thc people to provide the  money themselves.  The Victory loan 1919 is entitled  to just as much consideration as was  given to its predecessors. It is up to  every loyal Canadian to do his utmost to make the new loan an overwhelming success.

These credits were absolutely necessary, and   strictly   good  business.    They must be continued.  They are   national   re investments.  The debts will be   paid   eventually  and in the meantime industrial and  agricultural workers will  be kept in  busy and lucrative employment.  CHOSEN LEADER  R. R.

FRIDAY,OCTOBER 3, 101.9  A great many of our ranchers  are  greatly  disappointed  over  the actual or prospective  results from the visit of the minister of lands  to Grand Forks. They take a pessimistic view,  and say that he came here to make a political  speech instead of telling the citizens what the  government is prepared to do bring Water on  the land  in   this  valley.    It is true that the  first part of Mr. Pattullo's speech bore a great  resemblance to a campaign   oration.    But  he  was virtually forced to adopt this method.   A  number of the farmers who preceded him   on  the platform, in presenting their  case  to  the  government,   made  the  assertion,   truthfully  enough,   that   tlie   government had  doubled  their taxes without giving them anything in return for their money.    Mr." Pattullo  had  to  explain   why   the  taxes had been raised, and  this explanation naturally took the form of a  political talk. It could hardly have been made  in any other way.   :���������: %  and evidently he did not have time to qualify  or explain it. In one sense the bonds are  a first mortgage; because they take precedence  over all other indebtedness against property,  even over a first mortgage; but in nowise do  they prevent the owner of a mortgaged property lrom assuming this obligation, nor can  they prevent a person who has subscribed to  this lien on his land from mortgaging his  property; The water bonds take exactly the  same standing as the debentures of an incorporated city do. They leave the owner free  to do what he pleases with his property.  r-  Local Conservatives feel -greatly incensed over the  snobbish manner in which Grand Forks vvas treated by  those who had in charge the arranging of the itinerary  of II.R H. the Prince of Wales. For this thev blame  our member in the federal parliament. They rightfully  say that as their representative at Ottawa he should  have been more solicitous of the wishes of his constituents, and that as'secretary of state he undoubtedly had  .some influence with the committee who mapped out the  tour. Mr. Burrell was a member of the royal party,  and it would bavu have bleu a very gracious act on his  part if he had made an endeavor to get the train to stop  long enough at this point for the school children to get  a view of the prince. ."���������.-.  :=^  What's Wrong With Your Eyes?

Why not see us about it today?  \=  JEWELER AND OPTICIAN  GRAND FORKS, B. 0.  J  Mr. Pattullo's statement was emphatic that  if-the land would stand the cost of the proposed system, it was the duty of the government to assist the farmers to install it, and  that the government would carry the matter  to a conclusion. It is to be regretted, however, that not even a hypothetical date was  set as to when that conclusion might be expected. Personally we have never lost faith  in ultimately obtaining a modern irrigation  system for the valley, even if the present government were openly hostile to it. Since the  government has promised assistance, our faith  has been strengthened. That is the view the  ranchers of the valley should take of the question. We may have to wait longer than we  had anticpated for a realization of the scheme,  but ultimately it will be solved  satisfactorily.  The  minister of lands   offered a practical  suggestion by which matters might be expedited in the present undertaking. That was the  formation of a water municipality.    When we  stop to think over this suggestion for  a moment, such an organization appears so be absolutely essential before any real progress can  be made in our negotiations with the government. The government can not deal with each  farmer separately.   That would be in the  nature of holders of city bonds attempting to  deal with individual  ratepayers  of the city.  A request on  the  government   coming   from  the duly accredited ollicers of a water municipality would naturally cany more weight than  if it came from a committee of citizens, or even  from a delegation sent to  Victoria.   Such an  organization would also  bo  useful   in  ascertaining what the farmers really   want, and  to  extend they arc willing to obligate their property in order to   obtain  the  system they  are  asking for.    The Sun's advice is,  take  immediate steps  to  form sthe  water municipality.  We have been   indulging   in  idle talk  long  enough.    It is now time to take a  step  that  will lead  to  real progress in this important  undertaking.  We are inclined to believe that some of the  ranchers lay too much stress on the minister's  statement that the bonds for the system would  be a first mortgage on their property. Thc remark was made near tlie close of his  speech,  THE PART OF PRODUCTION  The origin 'if the propaganda for shorter and  less exacting hours for work lies in the remote  past, says the Philadelphia North American.  The advocates of democracy foresaw clearly  that unless a majority of a nation could be  emancipated from body-breaking and mind-  wrecking toil, that nation would never be  capable of self-government.  Organized labor was quick to appropriate  this idea, and has used it.with telling effect in  its effort to shorten the hours of, labor, for  the avowed purpose of increasing at the same  time the number of jobs.     ^ :/;..., ::  During the long period when there was a  world surplus of goods and i? world surplus of  labor this policy was not unjustifiable. .But  clearly what might have been justified under  such conditions is indefensible under the existing ones.  For labor to use its strengthened position to  force work hours below the point of health requirements is merely to promote vicious idleness, and to promote such idleness at this  time, when civilization needs more of the products of industry than ever before, is to commit a moral crime against civilization and to  invite economic disaster.  In their campaign for shorter working hours  labor unions in the past have had the support  of medical science and the aid of all ritdit-  thinking men and women. The reduction of  honrs to a just standard has been of immeasurable advantage to all organized society.  But in their effort at this time to reduce the  working day beyond the health limit fixed by  experience and medical science they are arraying labor as a class against all other elements  of the body politic.  No one who is looking for the remedy for  the high cost of living can escape thc conclusion that many factors enter into the problem.  But no less can he escape the obvious fact  that the one fundamental, permanent factor in  any effective remedy is that of greatly increased production.  Decreasing production is one of thc chief  causes that give to a logal dollar on a 50-cent  purchasing power. Scarcity of goods makes  profiteers of manufacturers, middlemen aud  retailers almost against their will.  Even President Wilson, whose policy of un-  preparedness and whose ill-considered dealings with organized labor created the vicious  cycle of constantly ascending high prices, has  now come to the conclusion that the only permanent solution of the high cost of living lies  in increased production.  Prices will never como down as lonu1 as ex  travagant  myors --oop them up.  Of all present-day Sewing Machines.

Easy to Find  The teacher was very earnest���������far  more so than his pupils���������and the  subject he chose was about tbe terrible outcome of laziness and idleness.  With due solemnity, as befitted  the occasion, he drew a terrible picture of the habitual loafer, the man  who dislikes work, and who cadges  for all he gets.  'Now, Charlie," said the  teacher  to a little boy who had been looking  out ot the window instead of attending closely to the lesson.  Charles was instantly on the alert.  "Tell me," continued the master,  "who is the miserable individual  who gets clothes, food, and lodging,  and yet poes nothing in return?"  Charlie's face brightened.  "Please, sir," said he, "the baby.'  His Appreciation  The boy'stood.on the brldge,slap-  ping his hands vigorously. Beyond  the brow of the hill a dull-red glow  suffused the sky.

C.  rHEN, on the morning of November 11th, 1918, the guns were hushed and  glad tidings flashed across the world, there followed with the Nation's  Prayer of Thanksgiving, one yearning query, which found echo in the faster beating hearts of wives, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and sweethearts. That  query was, "How soon will our boy be home?" And, from France and Flanders,  from Italy and Egypt, from Palestine and from far-off Siberia, there came an  answering echo, " How soon, how-.soon, may we go home?"  PANADA caught the spirit of these longings, and at once resolved to satisfy  ^ thern. It was an appalling task. Shipping was tragically scarce. The composition of the Army of Occupation had not then been settled. And other parts of  the Empire as well as Canada were looking for the speedy return of their men.  ^HE problem was this. The half-million men that Canada had overseas had  taken more than four years to transport to the field of battle. To bring  them home in a few months was a gigantic undertaking���������one to tax all Canada's  ingenuity and resources. Canada solved the problem, but it meant crowding into  a few short months, an expense for demobilization which it was impossible to foresee.  rpHEN, too, besides the sentimental aspect of the necessity for bringing the men  -^     home quickly the economic side could not be overlooked.   That was, to transform efficiently and speedily the nation's army of fighters into a national army of  workers.  .'.-.*.'������������������- +      +      +'���������.���������+      +  Need  Divides  Itself in  Two Parts  The answer to the.question "Why-  does Canada need another Victory-  Loan?" divides itself into two parts.

(b) To provide national working capital. v  Obligations     The   obligations   to   soldiers   in-  .tO. ������������������SoluierS That already incurred cost of  bringing home troops from overseas.

The upkeep of hospitals, and their medical and nursing  staffs, until the need for them is ended.  ���������These three items alone will use up at least $200,000,000  of the Victory Loan 1919.

These national expenditures are war expenses. They  will be accepted readily by every citizen who gives  thought to the task which Canada faced following the  Armistice, and to the success with which she has met it.  National Canada   needs   national   working  capital, so that she may be able  to sell on credit to Great Britain  and our Allies the products of  our farms, forests, fisheries,  mines and factories.  You may ask "Why sell to them if they can't pay cash?"  The answer is, "Their orders are absolutely essential  to the continuance of our agricultural and industrial  prosperity."  The magnitude of these orders and the amount of employment thus created, will depend upon the success  ������f the Victory Loan 1919.  The " Why " Farmers and manufacturers (and  ^4. {^rriAii- that includes the workers on these  Ol  i>reulT orders) must   be   paid   cash   for  Loans their products. Therefore, Canada  must borrow money from her  citizens to give credit, temporarily, to Great Britain and  our Allies. Actually, no money will pass out of Canada.  If Carada does not give credit, other countries will;  and thoy will get the trade, and have the employment  that should be ours, to distribute amongst their workers.  And remember, wc absolutely need these orders to maintain emplo3*mcnt. If we don't finance them business  will feel the depression, employment will not be as  pleat:fid, and conditions everywhere will be adversely  affected.  For TranS-        Money must also be available to  n   fnti carry on the nation's shipbuilding  pwi luuvu programme, and other transport  ation development .work.  For loans to Provincial Housing Commissions v/ho are  building moderate priced houses.  These, then, are some of the things for which Canada  needs national working capital. She is in the position  of a great trading company, and her citizens who buy  Victory Bonds are the shareholders.  Those who give thought to our outstanding obligations to soldiers, and to our need for  national working capital, cannot fail to be Impressed with the absolute necessity for the  "Every Dollar Spent in Canada  Issued by Canada's Victory Loan Committee  in co-operation with the Minister of Finance  of thc Dominion of Canada.  tf  Work He Was EngagedFor  At a certain gasworks they are very  particular about their employees.
