McCallum,  McCabe, McDonald and  Schnitter were present at the regular  meeting of the city council on Monday evening.  The joint finance and water and  light committee recommended that  the city pay one-half the cost of a  $1000 accident insurance policy for  fifteen members of the fire department. Each policy would cost $9,  of which the city would pay $4.50  and the firemen $4.50. The recommendation was accepted.  The chairman of the water and  light committee recommended that  the old screw pipe in the pumping  station be replaced by a steel pipe.  Accepted.  The chairman of the water and  light committee reported that City  Engineer Reid had been granted a  two weeks' vacation.  The chairman of the board of  works reported that the Grand "Forks  Transfer company's coal shed had  been paiuted red, and that Cecil  street and Ida avenue had been  graded.    Accepted.

CANADA WILL GO  BACK TO OLD TIME  ON OCTOBER 27  Ottawa, Sept. 26���������Canada will  resume ordinary time at 2 a m. Sunday, October 27. All clocks will at  that hour be put back sixty minutes-  WHY* WE'ARE  SAVING SUGAR  We are restricted in   the   use   of  sugar   in   order that  the people of  . England may have two pounds   per  person per month.  The people of France one and one  half pounds per person   per month  The people of Italy one pound per  person per month.  These amounts are notguarauteed  by the allied governments, but are  the maximum.that will be furnished if supplies can be obtained.  French sugar stocks on May 31  were the lowest in the history of  that nation.  A great handicap this season in  selling peaches, crabapples, plums  and prunes has been the unequal  distribution of sugar on the prairies.  This was noticeable in Saskatchewan  in the early part of the season, but  recently the cry of shortage comes  from many outlying points in Alberta.  Many cars of mixed fruits loaded  in Calgary have been cancelled, and  others threatened unless sufficient  supply of sugar could aocornpany  them to insure the buyer some  chance of a sale.  The following strikes us as the  right thing. It is a pity that it did  not dawn a little ahead of the end of  this season, when   the damage  has  Potato Prices  There is little change in the   potato  market in the   Northwestern   states  Stockton, Cal., quotes f.o.b. shipping  point $2 to $2.45, raestly $2.25.

The demand arid   condition   appear  to bo good.  The British Columbia committee  of the new Victoria loan to be floated soon by tbe Dominion government has named the press commit  tee chairman to have chharge of the  various zones throughout the prov-  iuce* during the campaign and in  the work of raising whatever sum  may be decided upon for the further  conduct of the war, the whole press  of Canada being called into service  to give its fullest support.  W. H. Malkin, of Vancouver, has  been selected,as theprovintial chairman and L. W. Makowski is the  secretary of tbe Victory loan organ  ization, John Nelson, of the Vancouver World, being tbe provincial  chairman of the publishers' organization throughout the province.  The object of these provincial  zones is to obtain greater .efficiency  and the chairmen named have been  selected and asked to secure the co  operation of others in keeping the  loan prominently  before the people.

A final analysis of the Victory loan  shows that tbe actual cost of floating  it included payment of all organization expenses, advertising, remuneration to bond and stock houses  and commissions to canvassers, was  not much over one half of 1per cent,  or, to be exact, 1.64 per cent. The  other expenses were for services of  chartered banks, in receiving subscriptions, keeping accounts, delivering securities at their branches  throughout Canada, over a period  of many months, and paying interest upon ooupous free of exchange  during the entire period of the lite  of the bonds and for the administration in the offices at Ottawa, where  a temporary staff numbering more  ���������.ban 600 was engaged for months  in connection with the work of the  loan.

This month's war cost will  break all records. The nation's burden for September is  placed at $1,775,000,000. According to figures this exceeds the monthly expenditures of anv other belligerent.  The United States has  spent nearly half as much in  eighteen months as Germany  has in forty-nine months. Out  of this amount, of course, the  government has aided her associates in the -war to the extent of $13,000,000,000 in actual cash ancl tendered them  credit of $750,000,000  more.

BRITISH COLUMBIA  tlis Revenge  Bilson had lived in many lodgings  and had a vast knowledge ancl experience of landladies, but the hawk-eyed  matron who last had charge of his  domestic affairs was the limit.  Years ago he had become hardened  to the marmalade-eating, tea drinking  old women���������even women who used  his handkerchiefs had ceased to surprise him. But Mrs. Blinker had no  care.  No. She would help herself liberally and consistently to his stores  quite openly, saying:  "Oh, Mr. Bilson, I'm taking a little of your groceries; but I'm not like  the ordinary landlady���������J'm tolling  you, you see!"  Well, one Saturday his stores were  shorter but his bill was longer than  usual. This was the last straw. Quietly packing his box, he took it down  to the street and put it on the roof of  a taxi.  Then, while the driver wound his  machine up, Bilson went into the  house and called down the kitchen  stairs:  "By the way, Mis. Blinker, I'm  sloping!
