C, FRIDAY,   OCTOBER 24, 1919 -"  "Tell mc wliat you Know is true:  1 can guess as well as you."  $1.00 PEE YEAR  Three Gars of Apples Are  Also Destroyed When  the Garson Plant Is  Levelled to* the Ground  by the Flames  The Carson fruit packing house  of the Grand Forks Co operative  Growers' association caught on lire  about 3 o'clock this afternoon and  was burned to the ground. About  three carloads of apples, ready for  shipment, were also consumed by  the flames. The loss is estimated  at 82000. There was some insurance ou the building, but The Sun  has been unable to ascertain wheth-  e. or not any of this insurance applied to the stock in the building.  The origin of the fire is unknown.  All that is certain is that it did not  start from the stove,' as the flames  were first noticed in a different corner from where the stove was lo������  cated, and they had apparently  started on the outside of , the building. All the papers and books  were saved with the exception of  one book.  Owing to the cold snap now pre-  vailing.arrangemeots had been made  to transfer packing operations from  the Carson packing bouse to the  cannery building in this city, and a  portion of the stock had already  been moved here.  positions in the public service of the  province, The report also gives the  number of the new appointments  filled exclusively by returned sol'.!  diers during the sixteen months in  question as 146. *  Out of this number, however, it is  pointed out by Dr. MueLeau, only  twenty two have been filled by the  "officer class," which is alleged by  the opposition leader to have had  all the show. Even with this email  number of positions going to those  members of theC.E F who possessed  c>mmissioned rank; the official <���������statistics disclose that no less than nine  of that number entered " Canada's  army through the private's' door.  That is to say, 124 memberr of the  civil service were either privates or  non-commissioned officers at the  time of donning and at the time of  doffing khaki, and that nine out of  the twenty two officer-members of  the public service became elevated  to commissioned'rank during their  career in the army abroad.  In the light of this information,  which is accessible to any British  Columbian who considers the subject of sufficient importance to direct  his or her inquiry to the civil ser  vice commissioner, it will be seen  that to all intents and purposes thirteen of the "officer class" only were  appointed to positions, and that the  remaining 133, referred to as having  been appointed within the period  under review, were privates or noncommissioned officers.  '( Continued on Page 3.)   '  One Hiindred Carloads of  Fruit Shipped Out of  Grand Forks Up to the  Present Time  The fruit shipping season from  this.point is now drawing to a close.  About all the apples in the valley  have now been picked; though there  is a considerable quantity yet to be  sent out. Up to the present time  about one hundred carloads of fruit  have been shipped from Grand  Forks this fall. This is a pretty  good snowing, when the exceptional  dryness of the past summer is taken  into account.  but it certainly more than makes  good in making necesrary production of sugar cane, sugar beet and  all kinds of fruit. This is not a prohibition lecture, but*a call to produce sugar beet in British Columbia  and encourage the establishment of  by product factories in every fruit,  growing district. We have suffered  this vear through sugar shortage,  but if the trouble is as above stated  we will soon make good the loss.  EXPORT TRAD  If winter should set in now, a  large quantity of potatoes in this  valley will have to shift for itself  out of doors until next springs.  There has not been enough help in  the valley this fall to harvest the  crops We need one of the Dominion-provincial employment offices  here.  THE GOVERNMENT  AND ITS WORK FOR  RETURNED SOLDIER  Special Correspondence of The Sun.  Victoria, Oct. 23.���������Criticism has  been levelled at the provincial  government from time to time  by   reason of its alleged indifference to the  lot of the returned soldier.   Lacking  either the desire to   he  accurate   or  any inclination to discover the facis,  an impression has been created  that  tha civil seiv:ce act has failed utterly  to redress the wrongs of an obsolete  system, which had scant  regard "for  merit and wus equally indifferent   to  a government's obligation where the  returned man was concerned.

Our Royal Visitor  The Prince of Wales has captured  the hearts of all Canada. Rich and  poor, old and young, are enraptured  with his easy manner and happy expression He is so different to what  many expected.  No    wonder   a   great   demand has  been created for a real    life-like., portrait   of   our    popular   future .king.  Photographers and artists have  failed  to secure a  satisfactory snapshot of  the royal visitor.   He was not here to  pose for them.    It   remainad for The  Family Aerald and Weekly   Star   of  Montreal    to   secure .a; portrait that  would be satisfactory, and they   have  succeeded.   Just  before-leaving   for  Canada the prince gave .a- special  sitting to the  celebrated   London, England,    photographer, Van Dyke.    The  agents   of   The   Family  Herald were  instructed to secure   the ri^ht to   reproduce it in Canada, and that   great  weekly   is   now   offering   it   to   its  reader's.  There are many mining men in  .this district .who. believe, that .the  Granby smelter in this city will  eventually resume operations, but  few are credulous enough to place  any faith in the rumor that the  company will experiment with a  costly concentrating plant in the  Boundary as long as the smelting  plant here is intact.  Seed  Grain  Distribution  The annual distribution of samples of seed grain is being conducted  at the Central experimental farm,  Ottawa, by the Dominion   cerealist.  The following kinds of seed grain  will be sent out this season:  Spring wheat (in about 5-pound  samples), white oats (about 4 lbs.),  field beans (early ripening, only for  districts where the season is short-  about 2 lbs.) flaxfor seed (about 2  lbs.), and flax for fibre (about 2 lbs).  Only one sample can be sent to  each applicant.  Applications must be..on printed  forms which may be obtained from  the Dominion cerealist at any time  after September 1. :___  As the stock of seed is limited,  farmers are advised to apply early  to avoid disappointment. No application forms will be furnished aiter  February 1, 1920.

About the only case tried was  Luciana vs. Gri, for $30 garnisheed  and paid into court and a counter  claim for $250; judgment for plaintiff on both claim and counter-claim.  J. H.

It is encouraging to note from the  return of the department of trade  and commerce tor August last that  the marked improvement in trade is  being maintained. The total for the  month amounted to ������202,236,078,  being an advance of S29 780,053  compared with the corresponding  month of last year.  The largest increase was in exports of surplus domestic merchandise, which went up from 890,153,-  8S8 in August, 1918, to $716,56-1-,-  792 in August this year, an increase of $26,410,904. In addition  to this there was a growth of ������1,664,-  192 under the heading of foreign  merchandise exported, making a  total growth of over $28,000,000 in  exports.  During the month Canada imported mechandise for consumption  amounting to $Sl,3o7,4S5, being an  increase of 81,704,959 compared  with August, 1918.

C.  OFFICE:    COLUM1UA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FlilDAY, OCTOBER. 24  1919  The Sun today prints a long article from its  Victoria correspondent dealing with the treatment accorded  the  returned soldier by the  provincial government.   In the matter of public service appointments we do not think the  returned men have any grounds for complaint,  and the administration's land settlement  program,  as  far as it  has been carried out, appears to   be    reasonably   satisfactory.    This  scheme, however, should be .extended  to  include other districts in the province.   The returned  soldiers   of the  Boundary  say   they  were promised, some time ago, a  community  soldier settlement area in the  Kettle  valley,  and they are now becoming rather  impatient  for the soldier settlement board  to take  th^  initiatory steps to fulfill that promise.    There  are  a   large number-of returned men in this  district who would like to go oirthe land, and  as they have lived here for a number of years,  thev do not like to move to other sections  of  the province in order to do so.   The only way  in which the government can retain the good  opinion  of these  men  is for the land settlement board to carry out its promise to  them.  ' The city conned appears to be having a  Rreat deal of trouble this year with the water-'  work reservoir. If any citizen would like to  inspect the files of The Sun, he will find that  some of the articles printed in the paper at the  time the reservoir was being, built seem to be  rather prophetic at the present day.  In the Ontario elections on -Tuesday, the  United Farmers obtained a landslide, secur-  ino- 42 members to the Liberal's 28 arid the  Conservatives' 26, the balance being Laborites  and Independents. The result means either a  coalition of the farmers with one of the old  parties or another election. On the temperance question a majority of the people of Ontario appear to have been sane. If the bar is  to be abolished, we might as well also do a way  with the2{r% slop and the drug store monopoly. In British Columbia we both of these  evils, but not prohibition. We have been informed by somegOf those who patronize the prescription and drug store method of acquiring  jags, that when the liquor reaches the ultimate consumer it contains* at least 50 per  cent water. This makes a nice profit for the  drug store vendors, espcially as the price is  usually two or three times higher than it was  when it could be obtained in the open market. Apparently, not all the profiteers are  en<_wed in the dry goods and   food   business.  Kerensky  is   remembered   because  of  his  dramatic rise and fall, if for   no other   reason;  According to the United States bureau, of  education, the boy who stays in school until  he is eighteen years old has earned by the  time he is twenty-five years old $2000 more  than the boy of the same age who left school  at fourteen; and also he is getting $900 a year  more pay. In other words, the additional four  years at achool are oquivalent to an investment of $18,000 at 5 per cent iaterest. Moreover, the earnings of the boy stayed in school  until he-was eighteen will continue to increase  rapidly, whereas the salary of the boy who left  school at fourteen will never be much larger.  TO THE HOUSE OWNER  To the man who owns his house the success  of the Victory loan, 1919, is of vital interest.  Real' estate values keep pace with-the prosperity of the country, and the relation of the  loan to general business is close and important.  Canada produces far more food than Canadians can consume, far more manufactured  goods than they can use. The surplus can not  be sold in the United States, becaue the Republic has an excess of the same staples as  Canada and competes with the Dominion in  the markeis of the world.  For many years before the war, the chief  market for Canadian surplus products was in  Great Britain and the same condition exists  today. Indeed the available supply of all sorts  of goods is particularly lean oversea because  of five years of war. The demand for Canadian  grain and other products is greater than it  ever was.  Financial difficulties intervene. Not only is  ready money scarce in Europe, but the state  of sterling exchange is such that it is unprofitable to transfer funds to this side of the At  Ian tic for the purchase of the goods required.  Last year from the proceeds of the Vicitory  loan $200,000,000 was advanced to Great  Britain for the buying of our exportable surplus. Every dollar was spent in Canada. The  producers got cash, the British consumers got  the grain, and Canada became a creditor of  the soundest and most dependable nation in  the world.  Owing to this arrangement there was no  slackening in Canadian production, the labor  market remain firm, and business continued  brisk. From the proceeds of the Victory loan  now offered for public subscription, a considerable amount will be applied to continue  these British credits and thus ensure steady  but, the annals of the great war contain the'production in Canada.

If slight defects already exist, a dim or unsteady light will greatly aggravate  the situation. This is particularly true among children, whose vitality and power of resistance is much lower  than grown-ups.   In-  ,flamed lids, styes, headache and watery eyes are almost sure indications of some sort of eye trouble. If your child has trouble  with  .his eyes, bring him in and let us examine his eyes.

By order,  f,. PKUUrrtA.  When Edward, Prince of Wales���������eager, bright  eyed, smiling and sincere-���������arrived in Canada in  August, and when he voiced his great admiration of  the wonderful achievements of Canadians, on the  fields of battle and at home, once again we were  thrilled with joyous pride.  He asked concerning Canada's reconstruction programme, and when he was told of the Victory Loan  1919, he graciously consented to the use of his Coat  of Arms on a flag, which is to be the prize of honour  for districts achieving their quota in the loan.  In dedicating "The Prince's Flag" at Ottawa on  Labor Day, His Royal Highness said in part:���������  'It is a great joy to me to be associated with the  loan, which is the bridge between war and peace, and  which is finishing off the job."  "Ihope every city and district will win my flag."  Striking, and beautiful in design, this flag will form  not only an unique memento of Victory Year, but a  lasting and outstanding souvenir of the visit of His  Royal Highness���������a visit which will remain as one of  the most memorable events in Canada's history...  The reproduction above shows the design of the  flag. The body is white, the edge red; in the upper  left hand cornet'������ai.ne Union Jack, and in the lower  right hand corner the Prince of Wales' Coat of Arms.  The flag is made in two sizes, 4 feet 6 inches by  9 feet for small cities, towns and villages, and 7 feet  by 13 feet 6 inches for cities of over 10,000 population.  Canada has been divided into canvassing districts  by the Victory Loan Organization. Each city forms  one district. Other districts have been determined  according to population.  Each of these canvassing districts has been allotted  a certain amount in Victory Bonds to sell. To win  the Prince's Flag, therefore, a district has to sell its  allotment.    That is the one and simple condition.  Anticipating that many districts will buy far  beyond their allotment, the organization decided that  for each twenty-five per cent, excess of the quota one  Prince of Wales' Crest be awarded. Thus the workers.  in a district doubling its quota will be the pr.oud winners of four small crests for their Honour Flag. These  crests will be sewn to the flag.    The Prince's Crest���������  the three ostrich plumes���������is shown at the top of the  coat of arms.  To every organization with fifty or more employees,  where seventy-five per cent, of the enrollment invests  a total of ten per cent, of the annual payroll in Victory  Bonds, a supplementary Prince of Wales Flag in  smaller form���������48 inches by 34 inches���������will be  awarded.  The allotment for each district has been carefully  considered, and is based on a conservative estimate  of the purchasing power of the district.  Your district can sell its allotment and thus win the  Prince's Flag, provided each person does his or her  share.  You will gladly do your part and encourage your  neighbour to do his.  Remember YOUR purchase may be the one that  decides whether or not'your district is to be the proud  possessor of the Prince's Flag.  0  lit  nee s  IS  66  9 9  You also Serve?
