Miller presided at the regular  meeti'ng of the city council on Monday evening. All the aldermen were  present.  A communication from the secretary of the Union of British Columbia Municipalities wished to  know how many delegates the city  intended to send to the annual convention, which is to beheld in Nel-  son during the first week iu October.  The clerk was instructed to inform  him, that three delegates had been  appointed. A similar letter from  [he Good Roads league, whose con  vention is to be held in Nelson during the same week, was ordered  filed.  A communication from Wm.  Henderson, Vancouver, resideut  engineer, asked for more informa������  tion regarding the council's request  for permission to place the trophy  gun on the postoffice square. The  clerk was instructed to communicate  with Mr. Henderson again, giving  him the exact location where it was  to be located and to request him to  lay the correspondence on this subject before the department at Ottawa.

The city has since  used the land as a dumping grounds  for refuse. The matter has been be  fore the council since the 17th of  May last. A letter from the land  registry office at Kamloops stated  that Mr. Carruthers was the regis-  t ered owner of thf property in question. Action was postponed until  Messrs. Campbell and Carruthers  could attend the meeting.  A number of other unimportant  communications were and disposed of.  The matter of  considering appli  cations for the position of city auditor   vvas  deferred   until   the   next  meeting.  The chairman of thjs finance committee reported that some new city  bonds were being sold, and the past  month's accounts were ordered paid.  The balance of the proceedings consisted of committee reports and  routine business.  On Wednesday morning a special  meeting was held to consider the  Carruthers case, alleging trespass  on the part of the city. Messrs.  Campbell and Carruthers were present. Mr. Campbell presented the  case for Mr, Carruthers, and a letter O. F.

Mr. ! for the coast.  A Justified Blow  Ever punctual himself, 'King  George III expected similar punctuality in others. Lord Hertford knew  and respected his royal master's  wishes. So one day, when he had an  appointment at Windsor for 12  o'clock, he was overwhelmed at hear  ing the clock strike the noon hour  just as he was passing through the  hall. Furious at being half a minute  late, he raised his cane and smashed  the glass of the clock's face. The  king, knowing nothing of the episode, let him off with a slight  reprimand.  *^The next time that the earl called  on the king, however, he was re  ceived less graciously.  "Hertford,"   said   his    majesty,  "how came you to strike the clock1?"  "The clock struck first, your  majesty,"  was   Hertford's   immediate  rejoinder.  The aptness of the speech and the  mock solemnity of the culprit in de  livering it won the   king's   laughfc  and forgiveness .

The arrangement,  it is said  by representatives   of   the  Granby company, will   enable   that  concern to develop, its  own   undisputed coal areas while the  question  of the disputed   area  is   before   the  court. Prior to the judgment of Mr.  Justice Gregory holding the E  & N.  Railway company to   be   owners   of  the coal under Gauner and   Dunlap  lands, the Granby had taken nearly  200,000 tons of coal from the- properties arid between 20,000 "and   30,  000   ton's  from  its other coal areas  which   are   not in dipute.

TOCLUSTER  The San Jose Variety  Causes Some Excitement Among Keremebs  Growers  A report from Keremeos says that  an extraordinary clu&ter of tomatoes  is ou exhibition in the window of  Mr. Ramsey's ztore. The cluster is  one branch of a vine and contains  12 tomatoes which weigh 11������  pounds. The branch was cut off a  vine of the San Jose canner variety  and there remained on the vine 22  other tomatoes equally as large as  those iu the cluster on exhibition.  A. II. Carle is the grower of this vine  and many others which are bearing  similarly large crops. He has altogether 500 plants of the San Jose  canner variety on his lot at the back  of J. J. Armstrong's home lot. They  are planted on a patch of land which  was strong and well cultivated. He  has already one ripe tomato of this  kind which weighs one pound six  ounces and others not yet mature  which promise to weigh over two  pounds. Some of the oldest and  most experienced tomato growers in  the valley declare they have never  seen tomatoes to equal those grown j  by Mr. Carle this year. The San Jose I  canner is a new variety in this dis-l  Uiot, having been introduced this!  spring.

The Usual Meal  The Mining  Industry  "A large number of people who urn  unfamiliar with the mining industry  look upon it in an entirely different  light than other industries which  money might be invested in," Charles  Camsell, the newly appointed deputy  minisser of mines .for Canada, said in  an interview recently. "Many con  sider investment in mine property  purely a gamble. Those who mako  mining investments from that point  of view court disaster. Only when investors place their funds in minim.'  property after securing the advice of  men familiar with the industry, and  who have special knowledge of mining and engineering problems, will  they find that they acted sanely.  "Mining is a specialized industry."  he added, "and people must avoid  putting their money iuto it until they  have sound technical advice. Booms  take place in mining fields as well as  in any other, and they always have  their reaction. The results of booms  are had���������not good, and often it takes  years to recover.

Grand Forks, B. C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  ���������FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1.920  The date for taking the referendum vote on  the existing Prohibition act is/not very far  distant, and active campaigning for or-against  the measure should start soon. In the last  election we voted for the present act, because  we wanted to see the public bar abolished,  and because we believed that prohibition was  an essential war measure. Since then we have  lived as we" voted. We defy any man show  where we have procured one ounce of spirituous liquor by purchase, importation or prescription. But the workings of the act has,  in the opinion of men not of a fanatical temperament, been a dismal disappointment. It  has made hypocrites of the greater portion  of our population; "bootleggers" swarm' in  every community; intoxicating liqour is openly  being sold over nearly every soft drink counter, and, according to the laws of the province,  over fifty yet cent of the people of British  Columbia are criminals. This is the existing  condition in the province today. The remedy  is either a bone-dry law, which would necessarily mean the prohibition of the manufacture  of the liquor, or a law permitting the people  to procure the liquor under government control. In the forthcoming election the people  will not be given an opportunity to vote for  a bone-dry law. It is either the present act,  .which is intolerable, or government supervision of the traffic. .We have decided that the  existing act is class legislation and that it can  not be enforced, and have therefore concluded  ���������to vote in favor of the government handling the business. If there is any money made  out of the traffic, the farmers need a reduction  in" taxes. And we believe this is the only way  in which the public bar can be kept abolished.  It is better to allow a person to acquire a jag  iegally than that he should become a criminal  hi doing so.  It can not be denied that among war veterans at the present time, (-'.specially among men  ot*the finer sert, there is a ieeiiug of disap  pointment at tlie'seeming outcome of the war,  says the B. C. Veterau. These men, indeed,  with an indurance that almost passes belief,  suffered the agotiies of hell uhiiethe war  lasted; but through it all thev were encouraged  by the hope that their sacrifices were but the  price that had to be paid for the making of a  new world. As they regard things as rlu-y are  now, it seems to them that the new world is  not even in sight; but instead the world that  is seems to bo sinking daily into depths of sin  and miserv deeper than ever it has touched.  They have good reasons, too, for taking this  view, For what with Bolshevism, dominant  for the moment on the one hand, and reao-  ionary elements of the worst kind active on  the other; while ordinary folks, and ordinary  affairs'seom to be of less ' consequence than  ever, the world would appear to have lost the  track altoghther and to be beyond recall toward higher and hotter things. The picture on  the screen at present is dark indeed, and it is  hard to discern any light in it at all. But does  it represent the whole truth? Certainly not.  Indepently of the general law that goodness  and truth are stronger than unrighteousness  and lies���������a law that the ages have abundantly  .demonstrated���������there is also the general prin  ciple that always there is to be found in things  evil an elem ent of good if we can only find it-  Things ma}7 seem to be the same today as they  were in 1914, or even worse. But they are not.  Clear through all the confusion and the battle-  smoke of things as they now are, there may be  seen in any direction signs and portents of  better things. - Men are not taking the buffet-"  ings of the powers of evil lying down. The  sense of right���������of truth���������of justice���������is not  dead; it is not even sleeping. On the contrary  it never was more alive.. And that being so,  changes for,the better must come. In spite of  the tyrannizing forces of Bolshevism; in spite  of the high handed action of rapacious money  lords; in spite of the supineness of politicians  in-many quarters, the faces of men in all nations are set towards the light���������and they shall  win through in the end. Let doubting Thomases take fresh courage.    Let   them do   their  ... D  own part, in ���������their own way, and in their own  place, to usher in the hew world, and their  present mood of disappointment will pass. It  will give place to the mood that becomes all  true men���������of defiance towards evil, and of supreme faith in the coming of the perfect good.  OPTICAL SERVICE  We render correct defective  eyesight  We are headquarters for the  newest  PRUNES AND BEES  For three years the division of pomology of  the University of California has been investigating the causes of" the variation in prune  crops in the Santa Clara valley. Experiments  show that the commou honeybee s one of the  most important agencies in producing good  crops. The fact was proved by covering two  pairs of adjoining French and Imperial prune  trees with large tents of mosquito netting and  placing a hive of bees in one ,of the. tents as  soon as the blossoms opened. The bees started  to work at once and probably visited every  blossom on the trees. After the petals of the  blossoms had fallen and there was no further  dauger that pollen would be brought from  outside .sources to the trees under observation, the tents were taken down. It soon became evident that the French prune tree in  the tent with the bees had set a much heavier  crop than the best of the exposed trees, whereas the two trees in the tent from which the  bees had been excluded had set very light  crops. Later, the fruit borne by the French  prune tree made it necessary to prop the  branches. In proportion to the. number of  blossoms, that tree bore fully five times as  many prunes as the ordinary French prune  tree bears. The results have so deeply impressed the prune growers of California that  many of them are buying sw.arms of bees, and  others are planning to hire swarms during the  blossoming season.

More than a thousand different species of insects and plants have been found in the Flor  Issant shales, many of which are closely allied  to living forms. The Florissant deposits have  been described as a sort of Pompeii of the  Miocene Age, for they give a picture of past  conditions that few other deposits in the  whole world can give. They even throw light  on prehistoric conditions in remote parts of  the world, for the presence of certain forms of  life supposed to be peculiar to the- Old World  suggests that land was or had recently been  continuous between Asia and America.
