C, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28,  1917  $1.00 PER YEAR  ETING OF Ii  mr council  Threatened Raise in Power  Rate Has Not Yet Been  Settled  Mayor Acies and Aid. McArdle,  McC-illum, Schnitter and Webster  were present at the regular meeting  of the city council on Monday evening..  A letter from L. A. Campbell,  manager of the. South Kootenay  Power <k Light company, stated that  he could not see his way'clear to  reconsider his decision to .raise the  rate for power on the first of October, in view of the fact that the cost  of production had increased 50 per  cent. The letter was ordered filed.  The chairman of the water and  light committee reported that his  committee had had a consultation  with E. E. Gibson, the local manager of the power company, that afternoon, and that they had urged  him not to raise the price for power.  Mr. Gibson had given no definite  answer, but ��������� had promised to consider ihe matter and to give them  his decision later on.  A letter from H.���������L. .Mackenzie re  garnisheeing C. B. Peterson for  money due the city, was referred to  the finance committee, with power  to act.  A. letter from the Union of B. C.  Municipalities urged the council to  send a full representation to the annual convention of the union, to be  held at Duncan next month.  A copy of a legal opinion respecting a tax sale deed was ordered to  be sent to P. A. Z. Pare,  Chief Savage, of the "fire department, was present, and urged the  council to maintain a clear power  line from tbe South Kootenay substation to the pumping station. The  present line had a number of branch  lines, and in case of a big fire there  was danger of not getting enough  power for pumping purposes. The  council did not feel able to undertake this work at present, but on  motion of Aid. Webster and McCallum, a resolution was . adopted  my n mending that the.next co-Uocil  place "a sum in its estimate's to carry  out the chief's recommendation.  The chairman of the board of  works reported that he had had an  altercation with Teamster Quinliran  over the feeding of the city team.  He had suspended the teamster,  and he wanted the council to take  some action in the case. It was decided to hold a special meeting on  Friday evening to deal with the  matter.  tention to fnirs. I do not think that:  the present exhibition will do the  district any good." . The Sun spoke  along the same lines a couple of  weeke -ago, bub other people, who  might have seen a chance of make a  few dollars out of the fair, thought  differently. If results have not come  up,to expectations, the fault is not  ours. From honest and unbiased  reports that have come to this office,  there has not been a really first class  exhibition in the province this year.  They have merely been held for the  purpose of eating up'the grants, local  and provincial. There could have  been put to a better usage���������to  eliminate the surtax, for instance.  TED KILLED  Ronald Tracy Given, 87500  Damages in Vancou- .  ver Court  FRUIT DEALERS  TO BE LIGENSED  After October 1 the wholesale  fruit dealers of, Canada will do business under strict supervision of the  food controller's office. The fruit  and vegetable committee has decided on the policy of registration  and licensing, and will require regular statements from all persons engaged in the trade as to the turnover.  J. R. Hastings, vice-chairman,  and D. Johnson, Dominion fruit  commissioner, say that they are  confident that the licensing system  will benefit tbe public by eliminating the- food speculator.  "Ifm is found that any whole-  paler is faking improper advantage  of the public his license may be  cancelled or immediately suspended," says Mr. Johnson.  SUN IS VERY WARM  FOR THIS SEASON  In last Friday's Vancouver World  there appeared a dispatch from Calgary saying that Alex Fraser had  been accidentally killed in P. Burns'  stockyardsinthat city:' It also stated  that deceased left a widow in Vic-  toiia. Although no definite information has been received in this city,  it is supposed that this is the ������ame  Alex Fraser who was a prominent  citizen of Grand Forks till six or  seven years ago. It was known that  the latter Mr. Fraser (if there are  two persons by that name) was employed in Mr. Burns' stockyards at  Calgary and that bis family resided  in Victoria. Mr. Fraser took a prom-  inet part in the business life of  Grand Forks in the early days. He  met with financial' reverses in the  real estate boom at'the coast.  been wounded at  the front and are  in French base hospitals.  Mayor Acres returned home on  Sunday from Penticton, wbere he  attended the provincial convention  of veterinaries.  - No definite date has yet been set,  but it is expected that the Granby  smelter will resume operations on  Monday or Tuesday next.  Word was received in the city  today that Ronald Tracy, who had  four fingers cut off in a sausage mill  in P. Burns & Co.'s meat market in  this city a couple of years ago( had  been awarded 87500 damages by a  Vancouver court.  TOO MUCH ABSORBED  IN WAR FOR FAIRS  The Sun is becoming sick and  weary-to nausea of being accused, by-  persons of sloping brows, of not  working fjr the best interests of  the community whenever it has reason to take issue with a pnblic official or to question the propriety of  a public undertaking. We wish to  state here that The Sun, with its  plant and the real esiate it owns, is  more"vitally interested in the prosperity; of Grand Forks than three-  fourths :of its citizens. We wish  everybody to understand this fact,  because the next time we hear anyone making a reference to "knocking" in connection with this paper  we intend to give him something  that he will remember until he goes  to bis grave. We confess we do not  know the definition of "knocking,"  but take it for granted that it is not  very complimentary. The Sun can  usually find enough English words  to express itself without adopting  bastards.  Capt. N. E. MacDougall and staff  arrived in the city on Wednesday  from Vancouver, and will start a  recruiting campaign at once. It is  expected that he will make hie  headquarters in the old Union hall.  The captain is anxious that as  many recruits as possible call for  medical examination and sign up  before actual conscription is put into,  force.' The medical examiners will  be Drs. Kingston and Truax.  The surtax discount of 10 ,per  cent ends on Saturday, September  29, being the last upon which taxes  can be paid and the discount Baved.  Lieut. R. S. Ash by, of the Royal  Flying corps, son of Mrs. Ash by, of  Greenwood, is in a hospital at  Rouen, France, with a broken leg.  >��������� With a * tiriy plant, a Spokane  company is concentrating platinum  at their diggings near Tulameen.  The concentrates are worth from  $2000 to $5000 per ton, and will be  sold to the United f States government.  The Great Northern train,, service  between Oroville and Princeton will  revert to a tri-weekly service'next  Monday. Trains will run on Mondays, Wehnesdays and Fridays.  "Engineer Nelson, of the Granby  company has been in Rossland for  the past few days inspecting properties in the Red mountain and the  South Belt, says the Miner. It is  not known-definitely what the- intention of the Granby company is,  but it is understood they contem  plate acquiring some of the properties to be used in fluxing at the  smelcer, and may develop the prop  erties under consideration on a large  scale in the very near future.  Local Rancher Raises Question That We Pass Onto  Attorney-General  "I see you printed the news of  the Doukhobors being granted a  Dominion charter," said an,.orchard-  ist to The Sun the other day. "Why  don't you give somebody one of  your old-time 'roasts' for exempting them from military service. It is  said they have an agreement with  the federal government. The Hudson Bay company had a charter  to sell liquor in Canada for nine  hundred and ninety-nine years. A  number of the provinces have apparently upset this charter. ' If they  could nullify this charter, why can  not they abrogate the agreement between the Doukhobors and the federal government?" The Sun passes  this question up to the hon, the  attorney-general at Ottawa.  The Sun was not even favored  with a prize list from the fair management this year... As the fair re  ceived a substantial grant from the  city, and Tbe Sun by no means paying the least taxes and rates to the  corporation, we are not entirely  satisfied with this treatment, especially as the affair this year was, to  a certain extent, run under divine  guidance and directed by men who  should know the meaning of British  fair play.

P. R., arrived  in the city last Saturday morning by  special train from Winnipeg. They  remained here about half an hour,  and met a few local business men  before continuing their- journey  westward.  Local officials of the Canadian Pacific railway say lhat the accident  last week at Fisherman was caused  by a broken\ transom under the  tender. v  The Sun's attention has been  drawn to the fact that our local con-  temporary advertises itself as the  official paper of the corporation of  the city ot Grand Forks. If this is  JJrue, ,The Sun should very much like  to know when, bow and by whom  it was made the official organ. We  have-attended every meeting of the  city council during the pastseven-  teeh.years, and to our certain knowl-  edge ho such resolution has been  through tbe council.  Fred Bell, who has been in the  Grand Forks hospital for three or  four weeks suffering from typhoid  fever, is reported to be improving  slowly.  Fred C. Graham, formerly editor  of the Phoenix Pioneer, and Angus  McKinnon, also of  Phoenix,   have  Enquiries concerning members o  the Canadian expeditionary force  should not be sent to England. Numerous enquiries are being sent to  the Canadian authorities in the old  country concerning members of the  expeditionary force. This results  in delay and unnecessary correspondence, as all available information is sent by the Canadian bead-  quarters in England to militia headquarters at Ottawa. This information is conveyed by cable and mail  to Records Office, Ottawa, consequently this ofiice is able to impart  the same information, in certain instances, from two week to a month  earlier than could bef done by the  authorities overseas.  W. J. Hanna. and other food controllers might get valuable lessocs  on cheap and healthy methods of  existing by living with the Doukhobors for a month. The Douks always have meatless days, except  when they take a meal in some unbeliever's house,���������Greenwood Ledge  More than 300 young men from  British Columbia have recently  joined the4 aviation school at Toronto.  The army camp at American  Lake, near Tacoma, contains 2500  buildings arid covers   70,000 acres.  Spokane men are reported to be  looking for mineral properties in the  Beaverdell camp.  The ideas of the world change;  what is unwelcome today becomes  welcome tomorrow. There is an interesting bit of evidence of that in an  amusing complaint, long forgotten  and now brought to light by tlie  Manchester Guardian.  When postage stamps first came into use in England some persons declared that the efligy of majesty was  too sacred to serve as a label for Vet-  tors.  "Have you seen tho stamps yet!"  wrote one ardent loyalist in 1S40.  "This is tlie greatest insult the present  ministry could have offered the  queen."  King Ferdinand of Sicily took the  matter so seriously that he had a  special postmark made in tlie shape  of a frame so that the oflicials could  cancel the stamps  his portrait.  without ytriking I^^fcfiitati lixcrmvwtKW.  *y--w&Al&r&WMrtfr*UTix-lzlyJi>iM-j^*r  fftKUMmnXhk r&MMaiutuiici u  THE   SUN,'.

But the  bill is of such importance that I consider that,  whether we approve or do not approve of the  measure, it having now become law with the  sanction of his excellency the governor-general, it behooves us all as British subjects to see  that it is carried out as harmoniously as possible. Under such circumstances I deem it my  duty to accept the invitation of my right hon.  friend. .It will be my duty to consult on this  side of the house botli those who approve ancl  those who do not approve of the bill, and I  shall communicate the result to m\  friend as soon as possible."   .  f-  right hon.

The impression still prevails in government  circles at Ottawa that the general election will  not be delayed longer than the month of December. No definite decision will be reached  in regard to the dissolution of parliament or  the fixing of the date of the election until - Sir  Robert Borden returns to the capital early  next week, but official opinion still inclines to  the view that an effort will be made to have  the vote taken before the Christmas holiday  season.  Tho severe fires in Southern  British  Columbia late in July destroyed large  quantities  of young forest growth which had established  itself on lands previously burned over, in  addition to considerable areas  of merchantable  timber. A portion of the young forest so destroyed   was  upon   the area  included in the  great Fernie fire of 1908. Investigations made  by the  Commission  of Conservation  shows-  thatjthe damage by repeated forest fires on a  specific area is much greater than is generally  realized.     Such fires  not only  destroy  the  young growth, but the seed trees as well, thus  preventing or greatly retarding the  establishment of a  stand of commercial species.    On  this account, in many sections,' reproduction  of valuable species is wholly inadequate, or is  entirely lacking; each successive fire diminishes the earning capacity of the area,  from  the  point of view of timber  production.    During  the past fifty years forest firejs in British   Columbia have destroyed an  amount  of timber  approximately  twice  as  great as  that  now  standing in  the  province,   or approximately  equivalent to the total stand of saw timber in  the entire Dominion.  ==^  Have You Defective  Eyesight?

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 dollars 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 bad to come to it like most other  papers. The increase, however, is a  mere trifle���������twenty five cents a year,  making their new rate 81 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 oft'er. 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 he still greater when this offer  becomes known.

Introducing Larded Potato  At the San Francisco exposition  several college girls conducted a restaurant in .which baked potatoes became a famous dish���������with encouraging'pecuniary results. Their* method  of preparing the potatoes was said to  be as unusual as it was delicious���������out  of the ordinary.  According to' their rule as given in  the New York Sun, you should lard a  potato before you bake it, in order to  fill,up the pores in the skin and keep  the flavor from escaping. If you cover  the skin with a little lard, bacon  grease or butter and bake the potato  the proper length of time���������usually  three quarters of an hour���������it will surpass a potato cooked in any other way  When you take it from the oven  break it open immediately so that the  steam may escape.
