 e Valley Orchardist  17TH YEAR���������No   47  GRAND FORKS   B. C, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 1918  $1.00 PER YEAR  Assays Prove Conclusively  the Presence of the Rare  Mineral in the Ores of  The Maple Leaf   .  ���������Ranch Sold  Bert Averill this week sold his  ranch, located fifteen miles^up the  North Fork, to Phoenix parties  The consideration s understood to  have been $3000. It is stated that,  three or four families will settle on  the place, and that an attempt will  be made to secure a public school for  that district.  ALLIES MOST E  GNTING  Results from the offical. samples  taken at the Maple Leaf mine in  Franklin camp prove conclusively  the presence of platinum in-the ores  of that property. The platinum ap  pears to be associated with'the primary chalcopyrite ores. ���������  William Thomlinsori, ore sampler  and collector for the Canadian mu  nitions resources commission, who  returned to the city on Saturday  from the Lardo, made a statement  to the above purport. He had  just received a report of the result  of the assay at the government office  in Vancouver of the samples taken  from the maple Leaf mine a couple  of weeks ago.  While Mr. Thomlinson was naturally reluctant ��������� in giving exact  platinum values in the ores before  making his report to the commis  sion, he was quite emphatic in his  assertion that the platinum was  therein, commercial values. He intimated that if the ores carried from  818 to $20 per ton in platinum it  would prove a great thing for the  camp. From this remark our readers  can draw their own inference We  have made up our mind what it  means.     ->  Mr. Thomlinson deprecated the  publication in a Vancouver paper  and copied by some interior p-ipers  of a lurid report of the camp. Such  unwarranted exaggerations, he said,  could lead to no good results. The  actual fac.s were good euough.  Recruiting Sergeant P. W. Forest,  of Vancouver, formerly traveling  sale������man for the Kelly Douglas company, is in the city this week recruiting for the'Siberian unit. It is  stated that he has obtained quite a.  number of volunteers. A-2 men be-'  tween the ages of 19 and 42 years1  are eligible for this coutingent.  I. Hallett, of Greenwood,   was   in'  the city on Saturday.  Premier Clemenceau Says  There Gan Be No Compromise Between Crime  and Ri^ht.  Paris,   Sept.    19. ��������� Premier   Cle.  menceau told tbe senate   today that  the allies must keep on fighting un  til     Germany    understands     there  can   be   no   com prom tse     between  crime and right.  "France desirps the  honor.of ex  pressing the gratitude to the splendid soldiers of the entente whose  efforts are about to free her population from the subjugation of barbarism. We only seek ppace so that  future generations may be spared  the abominations of the past. Forward then to the liberation of the  people from the last fury of force.  Forward to victory. Tbe whole of  France and all thinking humanity  are with you."  LE LEAF  A. E. Kincaid, of Revelstoke,  grand chancellor commander of  British Columbia, paid an official  visit to the local K. of P. lodge on  Wednesday evening A successful  program  was carried out.  Herbert Young and H. W. Col-  lius went up to Franklin camp on  Saturday.  Ghicago Capitalists Take  Bond on Well Known  Franklin Gamp Property for $350,000  EXPERIENCES IN GOING OVER  THE TOP FOR THE FIRST TIME  Excerpts from a letter received by Mrs. W. P. O'Connor from her husband, Pte. O'Connor, of the 2nd C. M.  R. Transport, C, E. F,:  I suppose by the time you get this you will  have read about our big drive; but I aui going to tell my  own little story of the.part I took in it. Well, on the  night of the 6th, after we had been traveling for night  after across France, we stood right under the guns with  our mules, loaded with trench mortars, and snatched a  few winks of sleep till about 4 in the morning, when we  were told to move out of the way a few yards. We knew  then what to expect. A few seconds later the guns opened  up. It was some barage. What I meau you .will suess What  a time we had handling our mules! The noise wasterrible,  and the ���������* shells were"? flying for ai 1 they were' worth just  above our heads. One could hot hear-himself speak. Well,  about half an hour after they started Fritz began his little  noise, too. Being taken completely by:surprise, he seemed  rather slow in starting, and our-guns firing right among  his batteries kind -of hindered him a little. He' /just \ knows how many miles they have advanced altogether, but  had to run away with his field guns as fast as he could, j 1 think this >������ the biggesi advance of tiw war We ace  but many were left behind, and it was up to us to follow 'iow restins about three miles behind them, while I am  him with our trench mortars, which we surely did. Talk | writing this, ready to move at any moment. Well, you  about . rainiug shells! Right on through them we went, can sa3' 7ou al1 wer)t ovet" the toP with ,ne- ils I picked up  across corn fields aud ploughed lands, with never   a   look   a small wrist watch, aud, being unbroken, i. took out   the  just crawled out the best we could, and, thank God, we  came through without a scratch. We reacned home two  pretty tired boys���������almost too tired to unharness our mules.  We were about to do so when the order came for us to  move on again and follow the boys, as they were -advane-,  ing so fast, and we had to keep in touch with them and  keep them supplied with ammunition. We had had no  sleep for some few nights, and had been travelling all that  day. We had hardly had anything to eat for a long time;  in fact, I had had about a oaf of bread in four days, and  that was all besides a tin of bully beef Tea could not be  had at all, but we managed to get a drink of something  like water once in a while. After, travelling all day we at  last came to a halt, and rested for about an . hour, when  the order came for more ammunition; so off we went to try  to find them, but after going a couple of miles we were  told they had advanced so far that we could uot possibly  find them and that the tanks had loaded up with ammunition and were following them. They told us to rest and  awaitorders So we unloaded our poor beast aud gave  them a well earned rest aud a good feed, bvt the only water  we could find for them was a stagnant pond, which they  would uot drink. Toward morning we had to move on  again, as our men were advancing all the time     Goodness  J J. O'Neil, of the federal department of mioes. Ottawa, arrived in  the city on Saturday. He is investigating the* smelter situation  throughout the country in relation  to the establishment of a copper refinery at some point in Canada. On  Monday he made a trip up to Franklin camp in company with William  Thomlinson.  Twenty five pounds of oxidized  ore from the surface of the Union  mine in Franklin camp gave pacings which assayed 7.3 gold, 40 oz.  silver and a trace of platinum per  ton.  As showing the present prices of  the platinum group of metals the  following figures are given: Platinum $105, palladium 8135, and  iridium $175 per oz  The ore from the chromite deposits at Cascade have been officially  sampled and are being assayed for  platinum.  William   Thomlinson,   the   government ore sampler, went   up   to  Franklin   camp on   Monday morn  ing  He will remain there for about  back; jumpingover trenches; using  lots   of  persuasion ��������� to  make   the  mules   with their heavy loads make the jumps,  while the shells were dropping all about us.   It was dread  ful to see the poor fellows dropping right  close   to   you���������  some badly wounded, some killed outright. There were five  mules in our party, and three got wounded and had   to be  shot.  I myself  and another  chap  struggled   steadily   on  through it all, and sure had very   narrow  escapes;  pieces  of shell were cor   antly flying past us within a few inches.  Naturally enough our nerves were very  highly  strung by  now, for having our mules to tend to, we could  not duck  into any shell holes,'as the others did.  I don't know what  the other men did, but I myself; with   the   help  of   God,  make up my miud to reach my Objective  and   deliver   my  guns aud ammunition.  After getting through this  inferno  we reached the first village that the boys   had   taken   and  passed; and this surely  wash���������1 itself, for the shells were  dropping   thicker   than   ever.   It was   a   miracle we got  through it at all.   For about two miles  we  kept on.    The  houses on both sides of us tumbled to pieces as the  shells  hit them. After getting through this, we finally caughtup  to  our   battalion, and received   a  hearty cheer from the  boys for the bit we had done in   reaching  our  goal   with  the guns.  They were collecting the men together, as when  going over the top men get scattered   around quite a   lot.  Well,   we   dropped   our load at a house by the wayside  where they were mustering, and off we  went through it all  again for more ammunition.    I was beginning to feel very  faint and sick by this time, the smell of the powder   from  the thousands of shells giving me a splitting headache and  I was sweating as if I had had the hose turned on me, and  I was tired out pretty badly.     Well, it  had   to  be  done,  so we both started out for our secoud load.    On  our  way  we passed Fritzies galore lying dead in hundreds; also some  of  our  own   men.    The boys kept right on after we loft  them to get our second load, and must have kept on going  strong   on   the  whole frout, as by this time they had ad  vanced quite o few miles. Thank God, we got through all  right again, and, loading up again, we started on our   return with more ammunition.  It was not quite so bad   this  time, although the shell fire was very fierce; but my   mule  seemed to behave a bit better.  I believe he was too   tired  and nervous to argue the point���������or  perhaps   ho   had   got  more used to the shells.   Anyway,!didn't have to work as  works and put a picture of you and the children in \f, and  have been wearing it all the time. I look at it now and  again and wonder how you all would feel if you knew what  I was going through right riow. This is evening, and Fritz  is dropping bombs around us. It surely is nerve-wrecking;  can't think of sleep till he quits, which may be about  morning, The country all around is covered with a thick  smoke from shells.and fire, and it is suffocating with the  powder smoke. It appears we took the enemy completely  by surprise, as he thought we were up north somewhere,  not knowing we had been traveling for nights to get to  this front. I don't think there is any harm iu writing  this after it is all over, as Fritz knows it all now to. his  cost. Do you remember Fritz making a big drive some  tirue ago when he was trving to reach Amiens, and advanced quite a long way toward it1? Well, we have driven  him farther back than from where he started, and our advance must be about twenty miles. Going some���������what?  Our guns are still pounding away at them, and our aeroplanes are flying around in hundreds, bombing Fritz to  beat the band We never see any of his planes in the  daytime, but he sneaks over~after dark and does his dirty  work. We surely have the mastery of the air. Say, we  surely have a time keeping up with him. He is uot a bad  runner, if he is no good at fighting.  1 am now starting to write on the next day, it being the  12th. It appears that last night we had driven the enemy  back to his old trenches, and this gave him a breathing  space, as he had the advantage of them to cover his men  and meet us with his machine guns, of which there were  plenty, from his trenches. This checked us a little, as we  had no cover arid   had to  go easy.    But we had eaptured  A mining deal of considerable  maguitude and of great importance  to this city was made Monday,when  H. W. Hoi ley and H. Williams, of  Spokane, acting for a Chicago syndicate, obtained a- bond on the Maple Leaf mine in Franklin camp.  The bond was for $350,000, and the  first payment falls due on tbe first  of October.  The Maple Leaf is one of the best  known mines in Franklin camp.  Recent discovertes of platinum in  the ores of the property makes it  extrimely valuable. The principal  owners are the Fee brothers and H.  Young.  Institute Meeting  In the absence of President Collins, Robert Mann presided at a  meeting of the Farmers' Institute on  Saturday evening.  A number of communications  were read���������one from the. food board;  stating that it would be necessary for  the institute to take out a license;  another from the department in reference to stumping powder, which  has gone up in price; and a third  dealing with the judging of the potato growing contest.  On motion, the secretary was authorized to procure a license for the  iistituie.  The matter of inviting the next  provincial seed fair to Grand Forks  was discussed. As the fair will go to  point in tbe interior guaranteeing  the most number of entries, J. T.  Lawrence moved that Grand Forks  guarantee 75 entries, which was approved.  On motion of C. C. Heaven, areso  tion was adopted expressing regret  at the severe illness of the deputy  minister of agriculture, W.'E. Scott,  and appreciation for the services he  has rendered the farmers of the  province.  The institute decided to make a  request on the department to allow  potatoes to be shipped in bulk.  Potatoes  Reports  from   the United  States  tell of a   shortage in crop by comparison with   last   year.    Stockton.

EDITOR AHD PUBLISHER  SUBSCRIPTION RATES���������PAYABLE IN ADVANCE  One Year (in Canada and Great Britain). $1.00  One Year (in the United States)  ........    1.50  Address all communications to  Thk Ghand Forks Sun,  Piionk 101R . Grand Forks, B. C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 1918  In some quarters it bras been suggested that  Canadians be put on rations and not on .their  honor regarding food. Do householders in  Canada seek to evade the food regulations?  Are the merchants of Canada conniving at the  evasion of the food regulations? Let us see  about that. The main objective of the Canada  food board is to supply Great Britain and the  allies with vital foods. With this in view food  regulations are made, which, if respected by  the people of Canada, will enable Canada to  keep faith with the allies on food.  Do the people of Canada want to keep faith  with the allies on food? ��������� They.do. Ave the  people of Canada keeping faith with the allies  on food? They are. To take any other position is to suggest that the people of Canada  would rather, keep their pre-war food habits  than keep faith with the allies on 'food. No  true Canadian is breaking the regulations of  the Canada food board, for-he knows those  regulations are nmde in order that Great  Britain and the allies and the Canadian army  at the front may be properly fed. Who of us  will eat what should be conserved for the Canadian army at the front?  to a greater test than the fighting men af the  past were snbmitted to in the worst of the  numerous old wars. They have stood that test,  and "the hundreds of thousands who survive  the cannon's blast and the rifle's bullet will  emerge physically fine specimens of manhood.  '' It is not necessary to look to the United  States or over Europe to see that the human  race has not cleteriorated. Canada is a small  nation compared with its tremendous neighbor  and with other allies. It had a population at  the census of 1911 of 7,200,000, half of whom  are males. Out of the young men part of this  total 500,000 men have measured up to the  severe medical test of the army, and some tens  of thousands of others have been examined  rnd rejected for minor defects that do not interfere with their life as civilians, and do not  threaten to shorten their days appreciably.  The men who were taken to the field of war  have lived in the open, through the heat of  summer and the cold and snow and wet of  winter, and the thunder of guns has been constantly in their ears. The stress of the deadliest warfare has not broken their spirit, and  they stand ready today to face attack from a  powerful enemy and to deliver it in return. In  view of these facts, the little bodies of gloomy  and narrow-minded persons who meet periodically and resolve that the race is degenerating physically and morally should rest from  their croaking for the time being. Actual conditions are confounding their slanderous assertions.  The race is stronger today than ever.  f~  Gonserve Your Eyesight  . No'one can estimate the extent to which we must depend upon  our eyesight to win this war. It is important then that our eyes  be as nearly 100 per cent efficient as possible. This is an important consideration regajdless of the work you are performing for  ��������� your country. If your eyes are not normal they will not stand  up under the strain, and neadache and other troubles will be the  result. We are specialists in Optical Work. Call and see us if  your eyes are in need of help.  A.D.MORRSSON ,EWS^^ICIAN  ^  jj  The heart of the people of Canada are sound  and in this war to a finish: Food is a first class  munition of war and Canadians so view it. It  will .be time enough to go in for rations in  Canada when the people of Canada refuse to  conform to national efforts to conserve food  for Great Britain and the allies, and the Canadian army at the front. When that time  comes a policeman, not a food controller, will  be needed.  England has just launched a steel merchant  vessel of several thousand tons that has not a  rivet in its hull. The plates, instead of being-  riveted and calked, were welded by electricity.  The experiment has been watched with keen  interest on both sides of the Atlantic, for its  success means a great saving in time and material.

GOO Canadian Soldiers,  ������il������3������s  Paris Paper Says They Are  Within a Mile and a  Half of the German  Frontier  of the 31st German division  was captaied in the American  operation on this front.  PERSHING WANTS  MEN AND GUNS  Paris, Sept. 19.���������American  troops have reached Vandieres,  within a mile and a half of  the German frantier, La Lib-  erte announced today. Vandieres is in the Moselle vciliey,  three miles north of Pont-a-  Mousson. Evidence is accumulating that the enemy intends withdrawing behind the  Hiuclenburg lino in Lorraine  if he is pressed any further.  He is burning towns along the  Moselle. Prisoners taken report that the entire artillery  Washington, Sept. 18.���������  "Send us men, guns and supplies, and we'll win the war  in 1919." This was the message Gen. Pershing sent the  American people  Congressman Tilden  ' The restrictions on sugar recently  imposed by the food control   board,  and   much   misunderstood   by the  public, haveS?ad a very detrimental  effect on the sale of  some   lines   of  fruit,   especially crabapples,  plums  and   prunes.    The   "proverbial   "ill  wind," etc., has done some good  to  the   apple   market   prospects. . We  wish to point out the situation   over  in Washington, as their   conditions  reflect largely in  British   Columbia.  Up   to   this date over 3000 cars of  Washington apples have   been   sold  to jobbers by cash buyers and growers' associations at  extremely   high  prices, and there is no reason to  expect any decline in demand or price.  But there are  several   reasons   why  they might advance in   price.    The  sugar shortage has  greatly   reduced  home canning, and this will certainly   stimulate   a greater dpmand for  apples, as they require  little   sugar  conking, and none at.all for dessert.  Inquiries are commencing to pour in  on   British   Columbia   sbippers for  winter apples, and   in   some   cases  the poor varieties which   have  been  pushed   first   are   now cleaned up.  British Columbia growers and   shippers are more  optimistic   than   the  prairie jobbei-3. The shipping end is  not overanxious, and expect   to get  rid  of   the   balance of   their entire  output of  splendid  apples   at   nice  prices.    The  market  commissioner  has just returned to  Calgary   from  British.Columbia, and can vouch for  the quality of this year's apple crop.  It is up to "the best ever."  THE SUGAR SITUATION  through  of Arkansas, who headed the congressional delegation that was  entertained at the American  held headquarters recently.  Congressman Tilden was to  see President Wilson this  afternoon to report on his  trip.  In the language of a well  known local scholar, there  are a large number of men in  this country claiming to be  producers who "product"  nothing.  liie  re's  ic in a  Smile  Everyone responds to courtesy, face  to face or "telephone to telephone."  No one will reply with bruskness if the  smile in our voice reaches him or her.  And don't think you can't put a smile  into your voice���������you are doing it every  day.  A genial telephone voice marks that  true cordiality which is the basis of successful business and real friendship.  "Eat   all  the fruit you can, and  what you can't eat, can,"    expresses  the suggestion made by the Rev. E.  Thomas, of the food .control, .'.board,  in Vancouver. Jam making is heavy  on the   consumption   of   sugar, and  the board in advising   against   jam  making had in mind the  increasing  of home canning with the minimum  of sugar.     We   know    that   canned  fruit   in   a   light syrup is more luscious and retains  the   flavor   better  than   if  made into jam, besides the  price of sugar at   present    value   is  less   than   2   cedts   a quart against  about 15 cents per  quart   for   jam.  There   is   no   restriction  on  sugar  needed   for   canning fruit, and   for  the next month  an   ample   supply  will be sold to housewives   to  make  their   crabapple   jelly, as the board  realizes   that   unless   jelly  is made  from fhe bulk of this   fruit  a   great  wastage   will   occur.      Housewives  should   know   that  plums, prunes,  peaches and  pears  make   excellent  preserves when put up in thin syrup  in hermeticalled  sealed   containers.  Contrary to prevailing opinion, little  skill is needed to put it up in a manner that will keep fresh   for   twelve  month.   The British Columbia fruit  booklet, which can be   obtained   on  application, contains   all   necessary  recipes.  If anyone has a derrick to  loan out, we can make good  use of it for a short time on  the Sunbeam ranch in lowering the Wagener apples from  the trees to the ground.

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, bo 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  same 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 requires land in conjunction with his  farm, without actual occupation, provided statutory improvements made and  residence maintained on Crown granted  land.
