Campbell   and  E., E. Gibson   went  overthe route last week, and  made  ���������the preliminary arrangements. This  week a camp was" established',  and  the work of  clearing ,the   right  of  way' has  been   started.    A branch  line may also be built to Princeton,  and before the'work is completed  a  large  force  of  workmen   and   mechanics will be required. !  lower  level   tunnel   with a crew of*  about   sixty  men.

Two of  them   have  been   killed in  action.  He also has a sister  who  is  a   Red  Cross nurse  at the front.    She  was  wounded  while   bandaging  th"e injured on the battlefield.  A great deal of dissatisfaction is  expressed today at. the manner in  which tbe "Birth of a Nation" company conducted its business. It  .appears that the company advertised, a certain price of admission,  and then when the people got to the  theater door they raised it 25 cents.  This naturally occasioned, irritation  and bad humor on the part of the  prospective audience. Our o'pinion  of the "Birth of a .Nation" was  never very high, anyway. The name  is a misnomer.. The scenes and  evenrs it.depicts. occurred nearly-a  hundred years after-the birth of the  nation. ' -      " *- ���������'     -  llarry Carson, who has done his  bit in the trenches in France and  FJanders, passed through the city  on Tuesday en route to his home in  Phoenix. He was wounded in one  of his legs.  . Parties wishing.-to join the first  and second drafted" battalions, now  forming at the coast, can obtain  transportation and " an order for  meals by calling on Capt. N. E.  MacDougal.  ..  The officers and members of the  loca IRed Cross society wish to thank  the citizens of Grand Forks most  heartily for the liberal patronage  they bestowed upon the Red Cross  bazaar, on Tuesday and -Wednesday  last.  Twenty-six   applicants were   examined  by the medical  board dur  ing thn present  week.    Twelve of  these passed, in the "A" class.  The speedy.trial of -Tom   Oxley,  charged   with .theft/was argued before   Judge   Brown   in   the county  court in^ this city   today     The  history of the case is complicated.   In  the'hotel at Eholt last month a diamond crescent brooch worth S500 or  more   was   swept  out of the office.  Frank Wilm picked it up,  and   the  manager,  Neil   Robertson, thinking  it was a bunch of glass, threw it  on  a shelf.behind the bar.    Tom Oxley  came along and said it  belonged  to  a woman in Phoenix.. He. took it,  presumably to-return it to the owner. Last week Aubrey- Morton   bad  Oxley   arrested  charged  with theft  by conversion. Oxley claims that he  lost it, along with two  85   bills, out  of his overcoat pocket. He appeared  before W. R.  Dowdney   in   Green  wood last Thursday  and was  committed  ior  trial,    At   the trial this  afternoon the accused was acquitted.  J.   H.  Ryley   for   defendeni* I. H  Hallett for crown.  M. Frankovitch and F. W. Reid  bagged a deer on Tuesday. If they  can repeat this performance on  ���������every meatless day, there is a chance  that they will survive the coming  winter.  The first instalment of. "beautiful  snow" arrived in this valley yesterday-morning. For a few minutes it  looked like'real winter, but the sun  soon chased away the delicate snow-  fiakes.  The Canada Copper company's  mineral claims at Copper mountain  contain about 3000 acres. The best  claims are at an altitude of 4200  feet..   The company has started  its  A Conflict of Authority  A Dutch journalist.J. M. de Beaufort, tells in his book Behind the  German Veil of an amusing incident that interrupted a drive with a  German staff captain through(Johun-  nisburg on the Prussian Polish border.  In front of a house stood two soldiers, a private in the Landsturm  about forty-five years of age and a  beardless lieutenant. They seemed  to be in hot argument, and suddenly  tbe Landsturm man shook his fist  in the officer's face. .. '���������:<,  The captain stopped tbe car,called  the private to him and bawled:  "Man, have you lost your senses  ���������threatening a superior officer?  Don't you know you can be shot for  that?"  "At your orders, -sir," replied the  Landsturm man jumping to attention. "He may Be my superior officer, but he is also my son!"  Regarding the,formation of the  union 'government- at Ottawa the  Quebec Le Soleil says:  "The question is this: Are these  Liberals true representatives of the  strength-and of the spirit of Canadian Liberalism? .We do not believe  they are, and are convinced that future" events will sustain our view.  In fact, the Canadian Liberal party,  now freed from disputable influ  ences, will begin its struggle for the  future of Canada."  ��������� The Montreal Daily. Telegraph  says:���������  "Sir Robert Borden keeps agitating with ��������� nervous desperation for  some measure of support from the  Liberal party, in which he is vainly  endeavoring to' plant the germ of  schism. But in doing ,so he finds  himself on the horns of a dilemma.  He finds that he can get a few outstanding westerners in his cabinet, if  he completely sacrifices the Tory  party."  ���������'���������-i[j6 Devoir, organ.of the--National-  ist party, Montreal, says:  -'The  French-Canadians  will   be  represented in union   cabinet by M.  Sevigny.   M. Blondin, who   figures  in  the   official   list, will   have  his  military duties .to   attend,to.    The  situation is   anomalous, but   M. Sevigny indicated it when he said:  'if  my colleague Blondin and I abandon  the government, what other'French-  Canadians will  consent  to succeed  us?' M. Sevigny remains alone   because nobody else wishes to  sit  be  side him."  Regarding the political developments at Ottawa,the St. John Globe,  independent Liberal, says:  "Today's news from Ottawa will  give satisfaction to all but the com  paratively few who hoped, through  party control, to continue their  grasp on party patronage. In the  reconstructed cabinet, Sir Robert  Borden will have the support of  some of the ablest men in public affairs in Canada, backed by the whole  Canadian people;"  The Times, Liberal, makes no  comment.  Ottawa   Citizen: "In  ahead  of consolidated  there may be   cause   for   criticism.  But there should be constant opportunities also for helpful support and  approval by public opinion in Canada.    Sir Robert   Borden   has   put  through a piece of sound statesmanship in bridging the gulf between the  artificially divided parties.   He has  given the lead to all loyal citizens to  get together for victory in the battle  of   the powers of democracy against  the powers of absolutism."  The Sydney Post says in part:  "Patriotic Liberals will rejoice with  patriotic Conservatives in all   parts  of Canada over the good news which  comes   from  Ottawa  that complete  success has finally crowned Sir Robert Borden's long cherished   project  adians of all parties for a mandate  to marshal the nation's resources  and to utilize them to the limit in  the allied cause."  The Winnipeg Telegram says editorially:  "The Telegram in common with  every .good Canadian, every loyal  British subject, sincerely hopes that  the���������new government may prove to  be as loyol, as . patriotic, as . enterprising, as efficfent intbe discharge  of its duties as its predecessor.  There are elements in the new j-ov-  efhment in which we have no confidence; but this does not prevent  us from honestly hoping that Sir  Robert Borden's judgment may yet  prove to be correct in all particulars,  including those of his new colleagues  whom this paper now distrusts because of their records up to the  present."  Respecting Sir-Wilfrid Lauder's  position, the Toronto Mail and Empire says: v-  "The Liberal members of the  cabinet will be turned to as the wartime leaders of-their party, and that  the more' readily because few Liber  als can any longer follow Sir Wilfrid  Launer, whose strong stand against  conscription tends to bottle up his  leadership to a  Quebec followiug."  !ED CROSS BAZAR  ss  Receipts- From-All Sources  .Estimated at About  TIMOTHY WANTED NO t  LAWStJIT WITH O.P.R.  It seems, at least the Montreal  Breeze says so, that Canada's big  -.corporation,.-the- Canadian-, Pacific  railway, has issued a notice td sundry hotels, restaurants and store  keepers protesting against the unauthorized use of their initials,C P.R.  One such letter was addressed to  one Timothy O'Brien, who was the  proud proprietor of the "C P.R  Barber Shop."^ Tim's reply is en  titled to a niche in the temple of  fame, and as it speaks, for itself we  reproduce it without further com  ment:  Dear   Sir.���������I   got yure   nottis, i  dont want no law soot with yure big  The Red Cross bazaar, held in the  opera on Tuesday and Wednesday,  was a gratifying "financial "success  as well as an enjoyable social function. Altnough complete returns  have not yet been made, it is estimated that ,the receipts from the  sales in the bazaar, the supper and  the dance will amount to about  $700. For this splendid showing  the ladies of the society feel justly  proud. It was a great achievement, and they are entitled to unstinted praise.  WESTERN MINING  INSTITUTE NOV. 7  'The twenty-fifth general meeting  of members of the western branch  of the Canadian Mining institute  will be opened at Merritt on Wednesday afternoon, November 7,  when several papers having particular reference to the mining and  mettalurgical industries and others  to mine'safety matters will be read  and discussed.

Petrograd, Oct. 18.���������The Russian  battleship _Slava was sunk in the  engagement in the Gulf of Riga, the  of the war office said today.  The war office report admitted the  complete occupation of Oesel island,  and says that everything of military  value was destroyed before the Russians retired.  Nearly all the crew of the Slava  was saved.  The German fleet was powerful,  fifty-five ships, including two large  dreadnoughts being seen at one  time during the operations against  the island.  The dreadnoughts of the enemy  soon silenced the Russian  batteries.  The Germans are entirely in possession of the island of Oesel, at the  head of the X5ulf of Riga, and the  Russian forces still there are cut of!  from communication with Petrograd. Small naval engagements  continue in adjacent waters, and  German aircraft are carrying out  reconnaissances over the islands in  the Gulf of Riga and over the mainland to the east.

JEWELB^AND OPTICIAN  GRAND FORKS.B. 0.  J  T. P. O'Connor, Irish leader and member of  the British parliament, addressing a   business-  press association in Chicago'last Friday night,  declared that.President Wilson's call to "arms  "to. make the world safe for democracy,", has  an especial appeal to'irishmen.  "Thc greatest  service which men of Irish birth and ancestry'  inthc United States can perform for the permanent good of Ireland is to help win the war  for America," lie said.  "Every Irishman is  at  heart  a d'emocrat,  not,   of   course,   in. thc  American party senseT Every Irishman necessarily agrees with President"Wilsoi*?"  ������������������*������  ��������� The number of men killed in battle in thc  ��������� present is only a little over' three per cent.  This is only a little higher than thc percentage  of employees killed on American railways.  To a young man in robust health, is the glory  of having taken an active part iu the world's  greatest war not worth.this small, additional  risk? If the medical board savs vou are fit to  go to the, why ask for exemption?  .From   the same flower  the  serpent diaws  poison and the bees honey.  Canada and  the  United  States probably  will be able to provide for the "allies' requirements of cereals other than wheat during  the  hext* twelve months. The allied peoples themselves have been economizing with wheat and  wheat flour. As Lord Northcliffe said in Mpn-  .treal, "There is no such thing as white   bread  in tiie old country, from the king's table downwards."   Other cereals   are  being used, but  they  can not be  used alone for bread.    The  allies must add them to wheat flour  to  make  the war bread now in universal use in   European countries.    Except in  Italy, where  the  people normally  consume  much   corn,  there  are few corn mills in Europe.  Corn  meal, not  being a durable commodity,can not be shipped  across the ocean in great quantites. The allies  muet have a wheat (lour   basis for  their  war  loaf. Unless  the people  of Canada  and the  United States arc willing to substitute  other  cereals for part of the wheat flour which they  normally consume, thev will be denving  even  war bread to many thousands of people.   Substitution of at least one pound of other cereals  for one pound of wheat flour weekly, per person, would save a very large quantity of wheat  for export. It would still be far short.of meeting the- normal consumption requirements of  tlie allies, but it would save the situatio.ii.  AN AMERICAN TRIBUTE  , Notrdbps have-gained more 'honor, or won  more glory on the field of battle than have the  troops ojf Canada, says the St. Louis, Star."-In'  no action in which they have taken partjiave  they failed to distinguish themselves by singular  valor.    The healthful climate of" Canada is in  a  measure  responsible  for  their   wonderful  showing-,-  but   there  is  another, reason  why  Canadians have excelled.   The first Canadians  to take up arms for the mother country were  hailed   as  heroes, by  their  British   cousins."  England realized that men from a country that  was not directly menaced by the war must be  animated   by  the   highest   motives of loyalty  and patritism to risk their lives for the right.  England's   estimate   of   Can?idiaii    worth  proved just.   In- the' first terrible days  of- the  German rush, as soon as Canadians  appeared  in-the trenches they won honors of war.    The  Candians who followed these pioneers were in  duty bound to live up to   the  high, standards  set by their forerunners, and in this they   did  nobly.  What lias been said of the  Canadians  must also be true of the Americans.   The first  Americans who fought the enemy have  set a  high standard for our troops; to follow.    Not  only have  we the* American ideals of former  wars  to guide   us, but we have the personal  exploits of our own men in this greatest of all  war. Territorial neighbors of Canada, it should  not be long before we are her neighbors in the  field of American glory.  :a few orUnr fixclusivedpeciaities  THE GOAL EVERBEARING   APPLE���������The  only  everl-eni-iiic-  Apple   in    existence.

APPEAL OF THE JOINT  WAS COMMITTEE  It becomes necessary for the Order  of St. John and the British Red Cross  society to appeal once more to the  generosity of their friends and sup-  poi tors at home and overseas for funds  to carry on their work of mercy for  tliw sick and wounded of his majesty's  forces.  The joint committee has decided  again to make such an appeal on Oct.  23rd, and wo earnestly beg your assistance in making it known to the  people of the Dominion.  Our Red Cross work is now costing  eight thousand pounds a day and   in  creases rather than diminishes.  Our help isgiven in- every theatre  of the war and to troops from every  part of the empire, and will have.to  be continued for some time,even whan  victory has been achieved,.  We are deeply grateful for the  munificent help received from sympathizers in all parts of the world, and  we* trust that with your assistance the  appeal made on "'Our Day" will meet  with a response which will enable us  to continue to do all that is humanly  possible to lessen the sufferings of  those on whose behalf wo plead.

HI  Editor Grand Forks Sua.   -  Victoria, Oct. 15.���������I beg to submit herewith a statement of the  potato situation in    British   Columbia,  with   fecommenations  which   have  been made by the   special  committee appointed   by   Food   Controller  W. J. Hanna to investigate the matter, and I would be oblighed if  you  would  kindly   give   publicity  to it  through the medium of your paper.  In view of the situation   through  out the Dominion, it appear" to me  to be imperative that every effort be  made   towards   increasing  the consumption of potatoes in   order  that  our surplus may be utilized -   This  can only be done by  regulating the  price so that the farmer my   receive  a fair remuneration for his crop,and  on   the   other  hand  the consumer  must   secure   potatoes   at   a  price  which will encourage increased consumption of this   important article  of  diet.    By  regulating  the profits  made by the wholesaler and retailer  and the prevention of speculation in  this commodity, this can be brought  about.  After conferring with F. M. Black,  chairman of the food controller's  fruit and vegetable committee, I  find the potato situation to be as  folows:  (1)'A surplus of potatoes exists in  every other province of the Dominion.  (2) This is particularly true of  the provinces of Alberta and Manitoba.  (3) There is apparently very little chanca of any market in the  United States.  (4) The surplus in British Columbia will be considerable, under  the best possible conditions.  To meet tb\' provincial conditions  I would strongly impress upon all  potato producers the wisdom of  adopting the following policy:  (a) That no potatoes  be  sold   to  tbe consumer through the ordinary  channels of trade of less than threa  ounees in weight, good sound stock,  free" from rot and scab;  (b) That a careful selection of  po.tatoes.be made, suitable for next  year's seed.  (c) That all small potatoes unsuitable for tablsjise be fed to stock  at, or close to, the place of production.  (d) That only graded, well matured potatoes, free from blight, be  pitted or stored.  National considerations require  that the consumer use more, potatoes, thereby saving a proportion of  flour. To encourage this the price  must be fair and reasonable, all  things considered.  Iu my opinion a fair price to the  consumer for good No. 1 Lower  Mainland potatoes would be $1 50  per sack of 100 pound. Allowing  the retailer 25c per sack, the wholesaler from .07^c to .15c per sack  (according to quantity and terms of  sale], freight and buying charges,  say .10c per sack, would give  the producer about .90c to $1.00 per  sack net, till December 31.  In view of all the circumstances,  this would seem reasonable and  fair.  I am informed by the chairman"  of the food controller's fruit and  vegetable committee that .the figures mentioned above compare favorably with those in other provinces  in the Dominion, and I would  strongly recommend the hearty ac  ceptance of them by all concerned.  Wm. E. Scott, .  Deputy Minister Agriculture.  Ever since 1670 the Hudson's Bay  company has been doing business in  Canadian skins and furs. Tbe advance of civilization has taken from  the trade some of the early romance,  but the recent announcement of net  profits of- 30 per cent for the past  year shows that its prosperity is still  of a very substantial sort.  "The Canadians in France,"  AsGreat War Map  Canadian homes will no longer have  ditticnlty   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 landed 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. 2^x3J-"feet 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 vblack,   easily   recog  nizable.    The map is endorsed by returned military-experts as most   complete aud 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 Herald   and    Weekly   Star   for   several  months back have been fighting   hard  against   the   necessity  of   increasing  their subscription    rates, but  eventu  ally had to come to it like most   other  papers.    The increase, however,  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 tho   subscription price of The Family Herald, and  are   surprised   at   the   small    extra  amount charged.  The enormous circulation of The  Family Herald and Weekly Star  should he still greater when this offer  becomes known.  They call them matrimonial knots,  but very often they are tangles.

LIBERALS WILL  HOLD 'i'"bONVENTION  A meeting of the executive of the  Liberal association for the federal  riding of Yale was held at the In  cola hotel," Penticton, .last week.  Some twenty representatives of the  five provincial constituencies included.in the federal district were  present. ...���������'. ���������.'������������������������������������  The principal subject discussed by  the meeting was the advisability of  holding a convention to nominate a  Liberal candidate for the Dominion  election. It was decided to cali such  convention, and it will probably be  held at Penticton on the evening of  October 31.  A   committee "was'appointed 'to  draft a letter to be sent to the executive of the Conservative   association  for each of the five   provincial  constituencies,   suggesting   that   "they  might hold a convention atthesame;  time and place.    The object of this  is to determine if it  is  possible  for  both parties to get together and  select a candidate, pledged to promote  any policy for tbe  successful  prosecution of the war, and    who   would  be acceptable to   both   parties, thus  avoiding an election in   this  riding.;  The sole desire of the executive in  this is to encourage and promote the  sentiment of placing country before  party, and they have made this suggestion in the anticipation   that  influential  Conservatives  throughout  the riding'will co operate with them.
