Question That Has Been
Worrying School Board
for Many Years Discussed by the Rate-
payers
nAnd KETTLE VALLEY ORCHARDIST
TWENTY-THIRD YEAR—No. 28
Tell me what you Know is tru**
tl can'duess as well at yon."
FRIDAY, MAY 9,   1924
The ratepayers of Grand Forks,
assembled in a public meeting in
the Davis hall Wednesday eveniug,
expressed themselves as being unanimously ih lavor cl the money by»
law to be voted od next Wednesday
and the cons'ruction of a new high
sohool building in the city. The
meeting wae well attended, botb
sexes being represented.
Mayor Acres presided and in
opening tbe meeting gave a statistical review of the city's finances and
progress. Contrary to the assertion
of pessimists, tbe city was not losing ground but was gradually forging ahead. To prove this, be quotrd
figures showing tbat more revenue
was collected by the city from
electric lights in 1923 tban 1913,
when the Qranby smelter was oper
ating bere. More tuxes bad also
been collected io 1923 tban in 1913.
Grand Forks was one of the three
cities in British Columbia witb tbe
highest financial rating. If $20,0C0
worth of bonds were issued and sold
locally, he was of the opinion that
the transaction would prove a benefit to rather than a hardship on the
taxpayers, The city bad already
been saved $1200 tbis y-ar in power
(or the waterworks pumps. If tbis
rate of saving wjs maintained it
would soon pay for tbe new school
building.
£, F. Laws, chairman of the
sohool board, was of tbe opinion tbat
the .cheapest way out of tbe present
lack of proper bousing quarters for
the high school wat to erect a new
building. Spread over a period of 20
years, $30,000 worth of bonds would
only mean an inciease in tbe school
tax of 1} mills. He read the report
of tbe bigb school inspector, recent
ly printed in thin paper, to bear out
his contention tbat tbe present high
school quarters are overcrowded,
unsanitary and unlit for the pure
poses to wbicb tbey are being put.
And present conditions, be said,
are not temporary; tbey bad come
oome to stay. After viewing tbe
situation from all angles, the board
oonld see no way out of the difficultly except by erecting a new building; to attempt to repair the old
building would mean a constant
drain on the city's finances. A new
high sohool would do more to keep
the present population here and to
bring new lesidente in than any
tbidg else that could be done at
present.
Dr. Truax, health inspector of tbe
oity sibools, made a  brief address,
in which he stated that the present
quarters of the high school are   nn
sanitajy.
B, C, Henniger ihougbt it was
quite unnecessary for bim to say
anything, as Mayor Aores and Mr.
Laws bad covered the subject pretty
thoroughly. He added, however,
that if Grand Forks ie going to have
a goood live community, the city
must have good schools. Tbe population of the city was not decreas*-
ing, but increasing, and it would
continue to increase. The city stood
very high financially, and there was
no cause for worrying about tbe increased debt that tbe new building
would bring. Good hospitals and
good schools were tbe best revenue
producers tbat any oity could bave.
G. H. Hull expressed sympathy
with the school buajd in its effort to
secure a new building, nnd hoped
tbat tbe revival of tbe attempt
wonld prove more successful than
the origoal one made some years
ago did. The present increase in
the high sohool attendance was not
temporary, but would prove to be
a  permanent  one.   Good schools
were the best advertisement n city
could invest in. The bnndB should
be taken up locally.
JJMr. 8miih of Cascade said tbe
question of bis moving his family
this city might depend on whether
the new school is built or not. He
was very much in favor of the new
building, and understood it wou'.d
only cost the average ratepayer
$2.25 more per year in taxes.
Principal Glaspell explained tbe
method of sohood work, and gave
reasons for the present congestion
in the entrance olass. The impor»
tance of keeping up the standard of
our schaol system could not be too
much stressed. In his opinion education had an ethical value rather
than ooe of dollars end cents.
Mr. Reid, of the high school staff,
Baid tbe old building was unsanitary and a menace to tbe lives of
the pupils in the event of tbe outs-
break of a fire. Answering a question, he said it would be impracticable to put the high school classes
in two separate building!-.
Mayor Acres thought the subject
hsd beeD pretty ably presented by
tbe various speskeis, and according
to bis way of looking at the matter
tbe two most important points tbat
should be considered were tbe
health of the pupils snd freedom
from danger of fire
City Clerk Hutton explained tbe
method of compiling the voters' list
and of taking the vote on money
bylaws. Mr. Hutton, who ie secretary of the school board, stated tha't
tbe tiustees bad spent many hours
seriously discussing tbe housing of
tbe bighscbiol problem.
In a free far-all talk at tbe wind-
up of the meeting, Mayor Acres
stated tbat tbe bonds, if issued,
would be registered.

day, June 21, is the date

The vote on the beer ques
tion will be taken on the same
day.
Ithadbeen pretty generally
thought thc election would
not take place till fall, but the
publication oi the report on

tha govarnment to bring on
the election aarlier than was
at first intended.

Victoria, May 8 —"I did not ex*

as a reeult of my visit to Ottawa,"
Btatee Premier Oliver, in answer to
rumor- that the election will be delayed because the government leader
did not return from the Dominion
capital witb a lot of election
promises.
"I went purely on public business," he explains. "I bave secured
a conference on railway matters «rd
I think this is as farasanyonecould
expect to get. Tbe railway problem
ie a tremendous one and acticn csn

more, I investigated tbe freight

that we are nearera solution of that

tion one way or tbe other. Such

Notes • Notions • Notables
If unanimity is an infallible indication that
a project will be accomplished, Grand Forks
will have a new high school building next
fall. The citizens' meeting on Wednesday
night was certainly unanimous in favor of the
scheme. Arguments by the score might be
advanced in favor of the proposal, but two or
three should be sufficient to keep any good
citizen from voting against the money bylaw
on Wednesday next. It is generally conceded
that the present high school quarters are overcrowded, that they are unsanitary, that the
lives of the pupils would be endangered in the
event of a fire, and that in the cramped quar
Not One of the Charges
Were Upheld
Not one charge made by the Povincial party
is sustained in the findings of Mr. Justice
Galliher, whose report on the Pacific Great
Eastern enquiry, over which he presided, was
released for publication on Monday at Victoria.
The $50,000 bribery charges against Hon.
William Sloai, minister of mines, and W.J.
Bowser, K.C, Conservative leader, are held to
have completely fallen to the ground through
the absolute failure of the third party to adduce any evidence in support of them. On the
other hand his lordship comments that the
witnesses mentioned by counsel as likely to
have knowledge of the matters in question had
all entered the witness box and given denials
in which they were unshaken by cross -
examination.
No evidence of corruption, mismanagement
or lack of proper business precautions in the
construction of the railway under government
ownship is found by his lordship.
His lordship finds thai the construction was
carried out economically and efficiently and
that the various charges in reference to tennis
nails and other miscellaneous articles being
charged to construction were absolutely disproved .
The suggestion that 100,000 yards of rock
work done was charged up to the government

ters now occupied neither thej instructors nor
the students have an opportunity to do full a     Pa,d for is held b? the commissioner to be
justice to their capabilities.    This is the situa- comPle^y   belied   by  the documentary evi-
tion here today. To alter this condition for
the good of the community by erecting a modern building will work a hardship on no one.
It is estimated that a six-room sohool structure can be erected at a cost of about $30, ■
000. Of this sum the city's share would be
about $20,000, the government supplying the
balance ofthe amount needed. This would only
add 1| mills to the tax rate of the school district, an insignificant item when one considers
the inconveniences that the teaching staff and
pupils must put up with in the present quarters, and when the risk to health from unsanitary surroundings aud danger to life in the
event of a fire are taken note of the monetary
value of a new building is beyond computation, It is a mistake to suppose that only the
ratepayers who have children of school age
will benefit by the proposed improvement. A
new high school building here will add to
the standiug of the community as an educational center and thus enhance fhe value of
every parcel of land in the district.
WHAT FORESTS DO FOR CANADA
Forests, in the language of the motorist, are
the carburator of national wealth. We are
accustomed to think of "forests" in terms of
one industry, paper paper making or lumbering, whereas they run a supply-line direct to
every Canadian activity. It may be the fruit
grower and his baskets and boxes and barrels,
or the coal mine and its need for millions of
wooden pit props, or the fishery with its entire
plait built of wood, or the railway and its insatiable demand for track ties and lumber, or
the farmer and his wooden house and barn,
fence posts, furniture ami fuel, or the water
power with its dependence on the forest to
prevent recurring torrent and drought.
The moment we touch a wage paying pr ofit
able industry, whether agriculture or manufacture in Canada, we touch a "forest industry," for without the forest as a source of basic
material Canadian industry could not hope to
survive. This refers not to only lumbering but
to all constructive activities, and to the bulk
of Canadian employment.
Canada's commercial future is wrapped up
in the future of the forests. If the forests fail,
Canada's natura* resources will be little better
than a locomotive with a smashed connecting
rod. China, Asia Minor, Spain, Italy and
Greece have given desperate proof of such a
sequence.
One of the last public statements of the late
Sir Edmund Walker was that "the continuance of fires is the darkest men.ice in the
commercial future of Canada." Sir Edmund
as a financier and world traveller, well knew
that the wanton dostruction of forests presaged commercial delcine.
dence, and the two or three books which
were missing when the auditors undertook
their investigation are held by his lordship to
have been comparatively unimportant in so far
as their absence imposed any handicap on
getting at the real facts. In this connection
his lordship refers to the evidence of G. F.
Gyles, manager of Price, Waterhouse & Company.
Each one of the charges madn by the Pro
vincial party in its petition is dealt with thoroughly by this commissioner in his finding and
not one of them is sustained.
What is your favorite hymn? A musical
journal in Philadelphia that has been coasult-
ing its readers on that point finds that the
hymn chosen by the largest number is''Abide
With Me." "Nearer, My God, to Theo," comes
next, and "Lead, Kindly Light,"third. Then,
at increasingdistauces,follow "Rock of Ages,"
"Jesus, Lover of My Soul," and "Holy, Holy,
Holy." It would be interesting to know
whether the judgment of the persons who
voted was affected princidally by the words
or by the music of the hymns they chose
Since the paper that conducted the questionnaire goes chiefly to musical people, it is probable that it was the tunes that they thought
of in making up their minds, buf we think
most persons are quite as fond jf the words
of their favorite hymn as of the music.

This enor nous annual amount
represents tbe total revenue for the
last three years, that is toeay.it
costs less to run the province for
tbree years tban it does tbe B. C.
lumbering industry for 12 montbe.
This sum nlso exceeds the total
paid up capi: il oi the three principal chartered banks of the Dominion
of Canada.
Over 3600 Firms
This estimate is not a rough aud
ready one, but is carefully calcii
l>.ted from the latest statistics made
available by tbe Workmen's Compensation Bonrd, tbe Department of
Labor, Victoria, and the Dominion
Bureau of Statistics.
There are over 36,000 firms exclusively engaged in tbe production,
minufacture and handling of B. C.
wood products. They may be divided into three classes:
Class 1 (Raw material)—2653
firms, includes logging operations,
pole, post and tie camps, timber
cruisers and forestengineers, scalers,
inspector-* and timber brokars.
Class 2 (Manufacture)—555 firms,
includes sawmills, planing, lath and
ehingle mills, veneer plants, sash
and door factories and concerns
manufacturing B. C. woods into
furniture. ,
Class 3 (Distribution)—413 firms,
includes lumber exporters, wholesalers, lumber dealers, accountants,
inspectors and woodyards.
There is also a foujtb class, wbicb
might comprise the tugnboatow ere
solely engaged in boom and raft tow
ing and tbe firms exclueaively man'
ufacturing logging and sawmill
equipment. (This ?lass is not in
eluded in tbe present estimate.)
Fifty million dollars is a huge
-mm. It represents at least one-
third of fbe total industrial payroll of the Province of British Columbia    and    at   a    conservative
ss.
estimate proves the means of support of at least a quarter of its total
population.

Those magic boots of old—the seven-
league boots—were the work of an imaginative mind. Who would ever expect
to walk seven leagues in a single step?
The story of the seven-league boots
was written in the days long before the
present time with its possibilities. These
days there is no need for Such wonderful
steppers. There is the telephone. It is
no effort now to talk a hundred times
seven leagues. The world is virtually at
one's door. This age of wonderment is
based, too, on imagination, but is imagination plus practical experiment and
great development.

One Flies to the North
••^•ontaotl" "Contact!" The last audible words between pllot-ftnd mechanic
^t*t are spoken, and with stcntoriun roar of cn-iiiw* and pfopellor the
giant, human and baKgage freighted plain', glides Bwiftly over the surface
of the Qulnze. One feels the churning waters tumping at tho bottom of the
boat until momentum has Increased to such extent that a touch of the
"■tick" oausee ihe Vlckers Viking to slowly rise.
Two turns in as many minutes and the passen,yr, having adjusted his
goggles and seated himself more comfortably, peers, ut first cautiously,
over the side of the pit, and far below him lies the little town of Angliors, the
bead of the Canadian Pacific steel which twists and turns in and out of the
forest tp the south like a living thing. The earth is as n map below, lakes and
rivers shining in the distance and beneath, and ragged patches of hush and
arable land smudged here and there like a child's vttempt to depict relief.
Turning east the plane heads down Lake Quinze, following the water
course to Lake Expanse, — one sees from the air how appropriate is its
name, — thence north for some fifteen miles up the Ottawa Kiver and further
north over one of its tributaries to Lake Fortune and Rouyn, upon nearing
which the plane leaves the glorious rolling clouds and gradually sinks until
once more the water tumps the bottom of the hull, checking it with sudden
jerks which tend to slow the boat until it stops within a few feet of tie-up.
One wonders how the pilot could, at suoh a speed, have judged his distance
10 well. But then he does the same thing more than once each day
bringing to the new Gold Fields of Quebec, in fifty minutes, passengers
and supplies which, before the air service was started took two days at the
least to arrive.
Commencing May 18th the Air Service to the Gold Fields will be regular
on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, large flying boats capable of carrying
five people being scheduled to meet all Canadian Pacific trains at Anghers.
This Bervice, which will eliminate the hardships of the past and enable
prospectors and tourists to travel to the Rouyn Mining District in less than
ah hour will include regular stops where they are required and accommodaj
tion is available.

Demand From United Kingdom
Constant Since Lifting of
Embargo, Says Col.
Mullins.
Montreal.—.Sounding a note of the
5trqn-!est possible faith in, and
Optfralsm "or, lie future of the a;;ri-
OUlti'.rali'it ii) ■ .'.ern Canada, Colonel H. A. Mullins, prominent ranoh-
or of Poplar Polut, Manitoba, who
arrived in Montreal on Sunday, submitted I i .ui interview yesterday.
"Tbi. silxallon on Die prairies is
rapidly Improving," tin: Colonel do-
cliuv.d, "aud lhe Westerner is taking
courage. Moreover, many of those
who In recent years left the farm
art returning. I consider the Me
In Western Canada is huKiiyilng to
turn strongly from tlie eity lo the
farm once more. The furee prairie
provinces especially h:ivc a tremen-
lous future, -ad, If due consideration
Is 'Uvea to their particular needs,
11,e realisation of thai future cannot
he Io'ik deferred.'
Asked to mention some of the Inline,., bb whieh. ln his opinion, would
tond Io liusli-ii the OoUlen Ane for
Western Canada the Colonel unhesitatingly pleaded first for a better understanding between Kast and West.
"The Western fanner can also do
a great deal to help himself," tho
Colonel added. "I consistently advocate that all farmers out thero
should go In for raising livestock as
well as other stuff, especially for
raising high-grade stock, and that
those now in that game should stick
to it. They should also stop crowding tlieir shipments- -and this applies not only to livestock but to
other products, such as grain—into
three months or so of the year.
Then (hey won't find themselves
forced to take low prices because of the rush, and things will be
better for the country generally as
well."
Despite many recent setbacks,
there is, the Colonel is convinced, a
world market for good Western cattle. The doni.ind from thc United
Kingdom, he says, has been constant
and heavy since the lifting of the
embargo, though it has bcen affected
adversely by the recent closing of
Liverpool, Glasgow and some other
ports on account of the outbreak of
fpot. and mouth disease.
Colonel Mu'iir.s is in an excellent
position to speak wilh authority on
the cattle situation, for he has heen
I shipping cattle overseas steadily and
I intends to continue.     Recontly   he

h'.ite to the Company for the manner
in wblcb it li.vl handled his consignment. The shrinkage in weight
was unuiually light," he stated, "and
not only did Ihey make up this loss

It is estimated that over 50,000
jcrca Were j..\,ii with corn in Alberta In 1028, aa compared with
only 1,000 acres In II 18, This is a
(food indication of how rapidly corn
culture is Increasing In Western
Canada In conn liun with mixed
farming operations.
All previous records of Canadiaa
freight trnnsportaiion were broke*
when a solid train-load of automobiles reached the Pacific Coast from
Windsor, Ont., over Canadian Pacific lines recently. The distance of
2,032 miles was covered in seven
days, or exactly 169 hours and 20
minutes. The train, which consisted
of 40 cars, each containing 6 Ford
automobiles, was more than a third
of a mile long and was handled oa
practically  passenger  schedule.
The splendidly sound position of
the Canadian Pacific Railway is well
shown in the annual report for the
fiscal year ended December 31st,
1923, which has just been issued.
The gross earnings of the Company
for the year were $195,837,089.61,
the working expenses |158,358r
079.54, and the net earnings, fSV
479,010.07.
A large party of Scottish farmers, ploughmen, farm workers and
their families, is expected to arrive
at Montreal in June. The party,
which will sail on the Canadian
Pacific steamer "Marburn," will be
conducted by the Scottish representative of the Canadian Pacific
Department of Colonisation and Development.
During the year 1924, 96 arrivals
•nd departures on the St. Lawrence
route, with its different services, to
be maintained throughout the summer months by its popular mono-
class cabin and Empress class steam-
en, will constitute the Canadian
programme of the Canadian Pacific
Railway's steamships. A combined
tonnage of 197,000 gross tons will
be la operation on the .Atlantic under
the Company's flag, the largest
amount yet assigned by a single line
to steamship passenger traffic on
the St. Lawrence route.
Canada's unfavorable trade balance with the United States is more
than equaled by her favorable trade
balance with thc United Kingdom,
according to trade figures of the
Bureau of Statistics. For the year
ending February, Canada's imports
from the United States were $603.-
000,000 and her exports to that
country $426,000,000, an excess of
imports of $177,000,000. As against
this, Canadian exports to the United
Kingdom were $355,000,000, and the
imports from Britain $155,000,000, a
surplus of $200,000,000 on the aide
of exports.

AT VOLCANIC
William Brown, Running
Amuck While Intoxicated, Is Shot and Killed
by R. A. Brown
News of the Gity
A chimney fire at Ed Bailey's' on
Wednesday evening called out the
fire department.
Mark Madden, of Chicago, who is
operating the Providence mine at
Greenwood, spent several days in the
city this week.
Mrs. E. Barron has again taken
up her residence in the city, after
making her home at the coast for a
sbort time.
A shooting tragedy in which
William Brown was shot and
instantly killed by R. A.
Brown, familiarly known as
''Volcanic" Brown, occurred
at about 11 o'clock tonight
at Volcanic City, teu miles
north of this city.
Accoihing to   the   details of  the
tragedy so far brought to the surface
From   Everywhere
Alberta hag maintained an _ _
age yield of spring wheat of 1914
bushels per acre over a period of
twenty-six years, according to a
chart prepared by the Department
of Agriculture. In addition, winter
wheat has averaged over the same
period 20.19 bushels; oats, 86.79
bushels; barley, 26.10 bushels; rye,
18.84 bushels and flax, 8.71 bushels.
A feature of thc annual banquet
and convention of the officials of
the Canadian Pacific Railway, which
were held at Quebec on March 22nd,
was the representation, in the ban-
quetting hall, of a full-sized locomotive of the latest type emerging
from a tunnel. Built of wood a«
Angus Shops, Montreal, it was ia
all respects perfect. At a prearranged moment, it emitted steam
and smoke, the bell rang and the
whistle blew, while the head'ight became a moving picture projector.
Indications of a great season in
Immigration are seen by Canadian
Pacific officials in the arrival at
St. John, N.B., durin/r the week-end
of March 2fl-3(). of 2,441 third-class
passengers, aboard the Company's
steamers Montcalm and Metagama.
Thc Montcalm had on board 1,584
•of these passengers, which constitutes a  record   for  the season.
tliere seems to have been   strong  extenuating if not   justifiable  grounds
for It. A. Brown's action.    William
Brown, who was a comparatively  recent arrival in the district  from  one
of the southern states, had  been  intoxicated al day and was practically
running amuck.    When night   came
his eldest  step son went  to  R.   A.
Brown's  home for protection.    Mr.
Brown weut out to the barn for some
blankets te make the lad abed. When
he was returning to tbe  house   William Brown  came up and started   a
quarrel.    It is said that he attempt,
ed to strike R. A. over the head with
a club, but that the latter warded the
blow  off with  his lantern,  the lan»
torn, however, inflicting a wound on
his head.    R.   A.   then  ran into the
house and barred the door.    Willirm
Brown,  unable   to    gain    entrance
through  the    door,    commenced   to
bread in the windows.   R, A. Brown
is said to have given the man  several
warnings that if he did not go away
tie would use his gun.  This he finally
did with fatal result
R. A. Brown, who is between 70
and 80 years of age and probably the
oldest old-timer now living in
the Boundarv. has been placed under
arrest and is now confined in the pre
vincial jail in this city.
Coroner Kingston today (Saturday)
impanneled a jury, but after a brief
sitting the session was adjourned until Monday to allow of an autopsy being made on the remains of the dead
man.
But little is known of the record
of the victim of tho affray, but neighs,
bors say  that he  was very vuarreln
A. E Bartholomew, of Spokane,
who is working the Combination
mine at Eholt, is in the rity today.
Mr. Bartholomew's first trip to this
district was made in 1892 —1892, we
said.
Angus Smith has re-located in the
West end after trying far-off fields
for a while.
Even the blind can feel  that summer has arrived, if they are unable to
see it.
Out of a total production of
10,730,150 pounds of creamery butter in 1923, Manitoba exported
3,863,204 pounds, valued at $1,513,-
169, Shipments were made to Great
Britain, New York, Chicago and
Montreal. In addition, about 200,-
000 pounds of butter fat were shipped  to the United  States. ,
In a speech lo the higher officers
of the Canadian Pacific liailway oo
the occasion of thc recent convention at Quebec, Mr, E. W. Beatty,
President, pointed out that 50 per
tent, of the company's stock is held
ln Great Britain, 21 per cent, in
Canada and 20 per cent, in the
United States, it is, therefore, a
coruoratios absolutely controlled
within the British .Umpire and, he
added, that control' it. Aeing appreciably strengthened As the years

The Factory Prest-O-Lite Built
From the earliest days of the Automobile, Prest-O-
Lite has been a familiar name to car owners. When electric starters were invented Prest-O-Lite was ready with
a battery to turn over the engine. As one refinement
after another was added to make motor cars more efficient and more comfortable, Prest-O-Lite kept pace and
developed refinements in battery-building.
As cars increased in number and production on the
present vast scale developed, Prest-O-Lite plants were
built and out-grown. The present plant at Hillcrest Park,
Toronto, was erected to take care of the ever increasing
out-put of Prest-O-Lite Batteries.
The selection of Prest-O-Lite as original equipment
on the majority of Canadian-built Automobiles and the
replacement of worn-out batteries with Prcst-O-Lites by
car owners who demand the best battery, enabled Prest-
O-Lite to build the brgest battery plant in the British
Empire and develop the greatest chain of service stations
in Canada.
Prest-O-Llte Batteries now sell at the lowest prices
at which this high quality battery has ever been sold.
Let us show you how you can save money by buying a
