 Cv;.:.;  Kettle Valley Orchardist  SIXTEENTH YEAR���������No   47  GRAND FORKS   B. C, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1917  $1.00 PER YEAR  _\  KILLED IN ACTION  Well >Known  and Popular  Youhs Man Makes Supreme Sacrifice  Mt in 1916, whereas tbe increase had  only been started in 1915. The company had ��������� a surplus of $443,687 at  the end of 1916. It is not believed  i the report for 1917 will show an increase of this sum.  While the profits of the Hedley  company decrease,those of its neighbors producing, copper and silver  have increased.' 'The price of gold  has remained stationary, while the  prices of some of the other metals  have been more than doubled.  Among those reported killed in  action iu last Fridy's casualty list  w- s he name of Robert Lamond,  of this city. Corporal Lamond left  here with one of the earlier contingents and saw much active service. He was a native of Scotland.  He lived in this city for a number  of years, and held the position of  manager for the Grand Forks Orchard company. He was a young  man, and a life that gave promise of much usefulness has been  sacrificed for king and country. In  this city, all who knew him were his  staunch, and he merited their  friendship, for he was a man of un-  qestioned integrity, withal industrious and possessed of superior intelligence. He was also one of the best  rifle shots in this part of the province. Nothing would have pleased  us better than to have seen him return home after the war crowned  with martial glory.  1~  GRANBY'S AUGUST  OUTPUT $600,000  The Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smelting & Power company produced 3,836,770 pounds of copper  in August, according to a New York  report. This is for both the Grand  , Forks and the Anyox plants. The  production last July was 3,147.-,SS6  pounds, while in August last year  it was 2,238,847 pounds.  The production in August was the  largest since the resumption of oper-  atins at Grand Forks. The output  - is valued-at $600,000 net in round  figures. This is no greater than July,  when the production was less. The  difference is accounted for by tbe  lower price for metal in August.  Granby produced 3,030,929 pounds  in June, 3,159,285 in May, 3,775,-  140 in April, and 2,814,780 in  March. The productior. was 4,268,  746 in .Tuly,19l6; 4,311,361.in June,  4,727,920 in May, 3,950;469 in  April, and 3,555,411 in March.  HEDLEY GOLD DECLARES A DIVIDEND  FIRST COPPER SMELTER.  FOREMAN IN PROVINCE  ��������� Miles Barrett, foreman of the furnace department of the Grand Forks  plant since the inception of smelting  on August 21, 1900, when the first  furnace *vas blown in, and 'at present general foreman of the furnace  and converter departments, has the  honor of being the first foreman of  a copper smejter in British Columbia, as he came from the Great Falls  smelter of Montana in 1895, and  blew in the Hall Mines smelter at  Nelson on January 19 of that year,  says the Granby News. He brought  two men from Montana with him,  one of whom, George-Miller, is now  furnacemao at Grand Forks. Alex  Clunis and Hugh,Crosby,shiftbos8es,  and Albert Benson, whom he  brought over from Nelson with him,  are still on the job. At that time  Paul Johnson was smelter superintendent, H*E. Croasdaile financial  manager, and Davis mine superin-  teddent at the Silver King.  MADE-MEMBER OF  ���������LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL  Hon. Tasker Cook, brother of W.  J. Cook, of this city, was ��������� recently  honored with the appointment to  the legislative council of Newfoundland. The St. Johns (Nfld.) Free  Press of August 21 contains the following reference: *  "At 4 o'clock on Monday afternoon four new members of the legislative council were sworn in at government house, Hon..Tasker Cook,  Hon. Frank McNamara, Hon.  Samuel Bell and Hon. Alex W.  Mews. Later they took their seats  in the house. All are gentlemen  prominent in business circles in the  city. Mr. Cook is one of the most  widely known and most popular  men in the city, and largely identified with business interests. He is  also consul for Denmark and vice-  consul for Norway. All these gentlemen have years of experience in the  business life of the   colony   behind  ORCHARD^ONTEST  PRIZES  A. D. Morrison's Orchard Se-  ���������' cures First' Place for  Second Time  C. C. Heaven this week received  from Victoria the result of this season .orchard contest in this valley.  The order of the prize winners is:  First prize, A. D. Morrison; second,  Sunnyside ranch; third, Grand  Forks Orchard company; fourth,  J. T. Lawrence; fifth, Robert Law-  son, with Messrs. Atwood and Padgett tied for tbe next place. In last  year's contesi Mr. Morrison also secured first prize, which'is undoubtedly an infallible indication that he  is giving his undivided attention to  hi" orchard.  John Hoadley, invalided home,  arrived in the city on Saturday from  Victoria to visit his mother and  sister. He has many interesting  reminiscences to relate of exciting  incidents at the front. At what is  known as the third battle of Ypres  he was half buried by shells several  times, and ' then,Nin tbe same engagement, he received a wound  which incapacitated him for further  service, a piece of shrapneF tearing  away one of his kneecaps. After  spending six or seven months in tbe  hospitals in England,'1 he was sent to  the convalescent, hospital at Vic  toria. He will return to that place  next week. On his discharge from  that hospital he intends to go back  to England, where he has been offered a life situation by one of his  former employers.  to stand up if in favor of the resolution. The local speakers were  Mayor Acres, E. C* Henniger and  H. B. Chapman. It is the intention of those prominently identified  with this movement to form a local  league as soon as possible.  The.Grand Forks-Lumber company's mill at Lynch creek will  start sawing operations next week  in order to provide the company  with lumber for its own requirements. As the company has a planing mill and a three-mile tramway  to build, it may be some time yet  before sawing for commercial pur������  poses is commenced. At present  quite a force of men is employed at  the mill, and Lynch' creek has  every indication of becoming an important lumber camp in the near  future.  Roy McLeod and bride, nee Miss  McKinnel, who were married in  Vancouver last week, returned to  the city Wednesday morning, and  were warmly welcomed home by  their many friends. The bride was  a member of the public school  staff in this city a -couple of years  ago, and is well and favorably  known here. The couple will reside  in Grand Forks, Mr. McLeod being  engaged in business here?-  ,  "It is a far cry from the first Toronto fair to the Canadian National  exhibition of today," says tbe To  ronto Globe. "The later seems quite  a young institution, with its thirty-  nine years, when oue discovers that  nearly seventy years ago the first  fair was held near the present site.  And farmers' day brougbtto the exhibition of 19x7 a pioneer farmer  who had attended that first fair ,He  is James Morrison, of Beaverton,  sprightly, keen and interested in life  at ninety-two years, and eager to  compare the exhibition of today  with that far-off fair when the  grounds comprised only a few acres,  and when there were few exhibits  besides cattle, horses, hogs and hens,  The wagon road from Cnristina  lake to Paulson will be opeued on  Sunday.-by-an automobile, excursion  from this city to the latter place."'

Payment  will be made September 29 to stockholders of record September 22.  The forthcoming disbursement  will increase the disbursements of  the year to SI80,000 and the grand  total to #2,242,520. The company  paid $240,000 in 1916 and $300,000  in 1915 and the same sum in 1915.

Although they consider the system  of collection and administration is  altogether wrong and inadequate,  they do not wish to place hardship  on tbe beneficiaries of the fund by  ceasing contributing in a sudden  manner. They have consequently  given the administrators of the fund  and the Dominion government three  months' notice of their intention,  which they eousider is sufficient  time for the government to inaugurate a new and more adequate system.���������Ledge.  ONLY TWO LIQUOR  STORES IN PROVINCE  The announcement was made in  Victoria on Tuesday by Hon. J. \V.  DeB. Farris, attorney general, to the  effect that following the principle  adopted by the Alberta government,  there will be two government establishments for the sale of liquor by  specially appointed vendors, under  the British Columbia prohibition  law, Instead of six as had been suggested. One of these establishments  will be located at Victoria and the  other in Vancouver. The decision  has been arrived at consequent upon  qhe visit of Prohibition Commissioner Findlay to Edmonton. That  the government of the neighboring  province has succeeded in reducing  the administration of their measure  to a science is the opinion formed  by Mr. Findlay.  The following five-men were the  first of the smelter employees to en  list from Grand Forks at the outbreak of the war. These men went  over from Vajcartier, Quebec, mtu  the 7th battalion:  A. Potentier���������Occupation,furnace  helper. He was taken prisoner at  the first battle of Ypres. He was at  first confined at Geissen, but has  since been transferred elsewhere.

Some men who, at the outbreak of the war,  .started out to graft from the government, and  have since been active war profiteers, still  pose as patriots. They are, however, finding  it more difficult to keep up the deception 'as  the Avar drags on. -     *  ��������� We .should imagine that it would be as  difficult to "profess a love for democracy and  oppose conscription as it is serys two masters.  The federal parliament-has been prorogued,  and many politicians will be kept busy during  the , next few months explaining why they  voted against the military service act.  ling   but  "household  management."

Nothing of the sort.

Have your eyes examined  when  you  first  notice  any   discomfort.  JEWELER AND OPTICIAN  GRAND FORKS, B. C.  -J  The  market  basket has joined the hoe,as  an emblem of patriotism. ,  It is not an anomaly for a good Liberal to  support the military service act. Conscription  assures democracy, and if the Liberal party  stands for anything, it is democracv.  If the war last two years longer, as it is  now' predicted, many editors may yet learn  that the hoe is mightier than the pen.  Harold  Begbie  writes  as  follows  in  the  North American Review:    Can  man. abolish  this Fury who devastates the world, who slays  youth by the million, and who fills the homes  of men. with unutterable agony?    We are not  now thinking of war as an abstract idea, as  a  far  of contingency, as something of which in  times of peace heroic men sing  manful songs  and coward men twitter their, shivering fears.  We are thinking of this actual war that has  killed our son, blinded our  brother,  crippled  our friend and maddened  our  neighbor; this  beastly  war  that stinks  under heaven   like  some  colossal fungus rotting in a wood that  nature made for poets and lovers; this ruinous  war   that   has  destroyed Europe in a few  months; this malignant war which has  made  men 'hate each other with such an acrid bitterness as has destroyed even the chivalry and  ceremonial of the battlefield; this  war which  has dragged delicate women, defenseless children and poor, decrepit old age into its steel  net of blood and death���������this war, can it be  abolished so that never again will it destroy a  peasant's cottage  or break  the heart   of a  mother'?   Let us make no mistake of the urgency of this question.    It is n.ow, in the hour  of death, that we must make answer.   Let us  wait till  "peace" returns, and it is like to be  only that false peace which brought this very  war to our hearts.    But now, while the precious blood of youth is still draining into  the  cesspits of death, now if we ask ourselves this  question, then such a peace may we  make as  shall outwinter all journeys of the earth.   But  we must ask with an agony of the heart, a determination of the mind, and a longing of the  soul, as if we were drowning men to whom  a  rope  has  been  thrown   out of the darkness  that engulfs us.  The primitive disposition in man, whi^h remains unchanged below the surface although  the appearances are refined, is humorously  illustrated in "the Canadian Magazine by' a  story of Sir Matthew Begbie, chief justice of  British Columbia.  Iii a case tried before Sir Matthew, in which  one man was accused of sandbagging another,  the evidence for conviction was conclusiye,but  to his amazement and disgust a verdict of  "not guilty" was returned.     ���������  "Gentlemen of the jury, this is your verdict,  not mine!" thundered Sir Matthew. "If there  were many repetitions of such conduct as  yours trial by jury would become a horrible  "farce and the city of Victoria would be turned  into a nest of criminals. Go! I have nothing  more to say to you."  Then he turned to the prisoner and said  savagely:  ''You are discharged!

PLEASANTRIES  r   OF THE  Promoting the Cat  As vats did much damage to his  papers, a Hindu clerk, who was in  charge of the official documents-in  one of the more remote Indian towns,  obtained permission to keep two cats,  the larger of which was to receive  somewhat better rations ' than the  other. A few weeks later the head  office at Delhi received this  dispatch:  "I have the honor to inform you  chat the senior cat is absent without  * ave.    What shall I do?"  To this problem the office vouch  sated no answer. After waiting a few  days the Hindu sent off a proposal:  "In re absentee cat.     I propose   to  promote   the   junior   cat, and   in the  meantime  to   take  into  government  service a probationer cat on   full   ra  ��������� lions."  Enlist at Such a Time  A mustering officer, in tne early  days of the war, before England was  aroused, met on the street of a coast  ���������village a strapping fellow about~ 21  years old.  The officer hailed him.  "See 'ere, me lad," he said, "are  you in good 'ealth?"   '   v  ���������'I are," said the youth.  "Are you married?" '  "I aren't."  '"Ave you anyone dependent on  you?"  "I'ave not."  "Then your Icing and country need  you.   Why don't you enlist?"  "What?" he said. "With this  bloomin' war goin'on? You must  think I am a silly fool!"  arrived at one mess somewhat earlier  than he was expected, and the"orderly  of the day, beiug taken by surprise,  and in his shirt sleeves, dived., under  the table to save a reprimand.  "Any complaints?" asked the officer.  The corporal, grasping the situation  at once, answered for the absent  orderly.  "None, sir."  ���������HVho is this?" asked the officer,  suddenly catching sight of the orderly  under the table."  ,The corporal again rose to the situation. j_  "Orderly of the day, sir," he answered.  "Oh!" said the officer.and passed on  The next mess were quite prepared,  with the orderly spjek aud span,  standing at attention at the head of  the table.  "Any complaints?"  "None, sir," answered the orderly.  The officer looked him well over.  "And who are you?" he asked.  ���������'Orderly of the day, sir.',-.  "Then why the dickens aren't you  under the table?" was the unexpected  retort.  The Swab  The 'sergeant and the lieutenant  were conversing about the new recruit.  "'E's thin as a ramrod and 'e don't  even look strong enough to 'elp in the  store," complained the sergeant.  "Let him clean the rifles," suggested the lieutenant.  ���������"And Ws agoin' to pull 'im  through?" barked the sergeant, defi  antly. ' '  A New Place for Orderlies  There is evidence that life in the  army has its humorous side even in  was time. In a story that recently  went the rounds of the English press,  a newly appointed officer who was  making his first visit to the mess, with  the usual inquiry of "any complaints?"  An Inexperienced Marshal  The London Times tells of an old  Irishman, long desjrous of official  dignity, who was- finally appointed  marshal in a parade on the king's  birthday. Veterans, bandsmen and  school children lined the streets of  the town, patiently waiting the signal  to start.  Suddenly thfi marshal, on a pranc-  iug charger, dashed up the street.  After inspecting the procession, he  "ave his horse a touch with his whip,  s ood up in his stirrups and   shonted:  "Ready, now! "Every one of yez  kape shtep wid the horse!   March!"  A Nicely Chosen Word  Of Nijinski, the famous Russian  dancer, who'is himself a good musician,  Answers tells the following story:  At a reception the other day M.  Nijinski listened without wincing to  a pianoforte performance, more vigorous than skillful,-on the part of the  daughter of the house.  "M. Nijinski, how do you like my  little girl's playing?" the hostess asked  Jier. guest of honor.  "Ah, madam," M. Nijinski replied  tactfully, l,I think your daughter haff  a vairy firm trade."  "The Canadians in France,"  A Great War Map  Canadian homes will no longer have  difficulty in following the Canadian  troops in France. There has just been  issu'ed 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������x3������"feet and folded into a  very neat cover, about 5x 10 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 black, easily recognizable. 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 dollar's 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'eents 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 the 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 be still greater when this offer  becomes known.
