Gity Council Also Endorses a Resolution Urging Gontinuaoe of Work
on Irrigation'System
The msyor sod sll the aldermed
were present st the regular meeting
of the oity council oo Monday evening.
F. M. Kerby msde a report on
survey work done in conneotion
with tbe proposed pipe line from
Milt creek to tbe reservoir, crossing
district lot 4994. The report was ap
proved, snd he wss instructed to pre*

and athletic park. An appropriation
of 9300 wss msde, and tbe matter
of reporting on the selection of fsir

the special committee appointed for
tbat purpose.

H. A. Glaspell and B. F. Laws
addressed tbe council and asked
tbst body to endorse tbe following
resolution, adopted by the bosrd of
trustees of the irrigation district.
The council compiled witb tbe request:
Whereas, tbe contract for unit
No. I ol tbe Orand Forks irrigation
project is now nesting fulfilment,
and     .
Whereas, a tax levy for administrative purposes has already been
made upon the lands of tbe whole
district, though tbe lands in' units
2, 3 aud 4 receive no benefit; and
Whereas, such tax, if long continued, will cause great dissatisfaction and greatly mitigate against tbe
success of the project; and
Whereas, tbe engineers wbo bave
been st work upon the portion now
nearing completion are very con
versant with tbe remainder and ull
local conditions, snd are consequently best fitted to continue tbe work
with tbe least possible delay and ox<
pense could their services be re*
taiod; and
Whereas, tbe company making
the pipe bas its complete equip*
ment bere, and its staff of from forty
to fifty local men trained in the
work also on hand ready to continue
and therefore the above company
can at tbe present time tender for
additional pipe at a much better
price to the district tban it can df ter
a delay of considerable time; and
Whereas, tbe operating expenses
for tbe acreage of Unit No. 1 will
be higher relatively tban for tbe
acreage of tbs whole district,
Therefore be it Resolved, That
this board of trustees of the Qrand
Forks irrigation district hereby re
spectfully upon the provincial government the advisability of making
suoh appropriations from the conservation fund as will enable tbe
board to make the surveys of tbe
other nnits this autumn and to com
plete the system during the summer
of 1923.
In reply to an enquiry from Mt.
Spokane Power company, tbe counoil set a price en the electricial unit,

Grand smelter of $1200 f.o.b. Grand
Copies of tbe renewal of tbe agreement With tbe CP.R. and tbe Kettle Valley railway for five years
were ordered to be signed, and a
bylaw embodying tbe same was
given iu first reading.
Tbe chairmen of tbe water and
light oommittee was authorised, to
bave the reseivoir cleaned wben required.
Tbe chairman of tbe board of
works reported tbat a new street
hsd been opened from the corner
of tbe Catholic church to the tour,
ists camping grounds, thus obviat
ing tbe necessity of motor oars
going through tbe alley.
Tbe sale of tax lands bylew was
reconsidered and finally passed.
The cultivation of nuts as a commercial undertakingahas lately been
arousing much interest snd it would
be advisable to enquire into tbe possibilities of making a success in tbat
line. Tbough tbere is a fair amouot
of profit in tbe growing of some varieties of nuts, one must not be led
to believe tbere is any very great
profit to be derived from tbe same;
a fair return for one's work and
money expanded is all one can hope
Walnuts nppear to be tbe most
profitable of all the nuts, tbough
there is considerable outlay in tbe
foundation of a wafnut orchard, and
one would have to have the patience
to wait some six or seven years before getting returns of any extent.
The walnut most favored for tbia
locality, Pacific coast, iB   tbe Fran
Tbe soil best adapted to the grown
ing of walnuts is a good loam with
plenty of humus of good depth and
well' drained. Tbe best method of
propagation is by using nursery
grafted trees on a known rootstock,
that of any variety of the black wai
nut, Juglans hindsii being probably
the best of all.
In planting use stocky trees of
from six to ten feet in height, of
good diameter and vigoious, healthy
root system Such trees can be obtained from any reliable nnrseryman
at $1 to $1.50 apiece. Plant your
trees in rows sixty feet apart and
thirty feet apart in tbe rows and
when tbey begin to crowd remove
altereate tree in tbe rowe.
Head back your trees to five or
six feet at time of planting. Good
cultivation is necessary and cover
crops of some leguminous variety
nifty be used. ^Intercropping during
the earlier years of the orchatd may
be practicod.
A small amount of pruning only
is necessary, merely trimming off
the lower branches, wbicb interfere
witb cultivation.
A walnut tree will come into
profitable bearing at about seven
years from the time of planting and
a mature orchard should yield nine
hundred to twelve hundred pounds
per acre.
Walnut trees suffer little from tbe
ravages of disease and insects and
the expense of combatting sucb
pests is small, tbe walnut bligbt and
tbe walnut aphis'being tbe principal
pests and these can be controlled,
tbe first by nicotine dust prepares
tion and the latter by blaok leaf 40.
Walnuts when mature will fall to
the ground and their outer husks
will break open and this is used as
the method of harvesting, for if tbe
nuts are gathered on tbe tree numbers of the nuts so gathered will be
unripe and therefore only culls.
After gathering the fallen nuts they
must be washed and graded before
sacking and shipping to market. An
average price obtainable for walnuts
ie from 16 to 18 cents per pound.   ,

Washington, June 10.—About
June 10 one of the two most severe
storms in June will be in operation
near meridian 90 with high temperature on Paciflo slope and in southwest
and low temperatures in northern sec
tions east of the Rookies. From June
10 to 17 storms and rains will decrease; good crop weather will prevail
witb only a few exceptions. Tbat
week is expected to bring the best
crop weather of the month.
A very important severe storm
period will prevail during the week
centering on June 24. From June 12
to 20 not much rain on tbe continent,
temperatures will average, lower than i
usual for all north of latitude 37 and I
warmer than usual for all south of
that line.
A tropical storm is expected last
days of June. It may interest Hawaii, possibly the Philippines. Not a
hurrioane but a tropical storm is expected in West Indies last days of

As the result of a motor
car driven by her husband
capsizing, Mrs. Harry Binion
met instant death while returning to this city from
Christina lake Sunday evening, the hub of the car striking her on the temple and
falling on top of her aftet*
making a turn and a half.
There were ten persons in
the car—Mr. and Mrs. Harry
Binion and daughter, Mrs.
McDougail and daughter Nettie, Mrs. John Kavanagh and
two children, Roy Connors
and Steve Jennings. All the
others escaped injury.
Mrs. Binion was the only
one who attempted to jump
when the car started to turn
turnover. The others stayed
with the carr
The car was removed from the
unfortunate woman in a few minutes, but life was extinct and it is
supposed sbe died instantly.
The accident occurred at a bend
in the road this side of Moody
creek. No one of tbose in tbe wreck
seem to be able to give a veary clear
reason for tbe cause of tbe tragedy.
Tbe coroner's jury on Monday returned a verdict tbat deceased came
to her death in an accident caused
by overcrowding of the front seat Sn
tbe car. This seems to be tbe eolation generally accepted at present.
. The victim of the accident was a
young lady wbo was raised in tbis
city, about twenty five years of age.
Sbe was a da ugh ter of Mrs. E. Larsen
and was married to Mr. Binion in
this city six or seven years ago. Sbe
is survived by her husband and two
children, as well is by ber mother,

Tbe funeral has been deferred in
order to allow a sister of deceased to
reach here from California, and also
a sister of Mr. Binion, Mrs. Wallace,
to get bere from Toronto. They are
expected to arrive in the city today.
Tbe funeral will be held at 11
o'ciock tomorrow morning from
Holy Trinity church, interment to
be made in Evergreen cemetery.

A email woman travelling with
her son—a boy very large for bis
age—banded the conductor a half-

The conductor scrutinized the boy
critically and said:
"Bnt, madam, I can't pass this
boy oo a half-fare ticket. He is very
large and has on long pants."
"Very well," replied the woman,
"if that iB tbe basis for your decision, use the whole ticket for him J

FRIDAY, JUNE 16, 1922
The adoption of the budget by the federal
parliament—although the act was accomplished by a the small majority of 18—causes
a sigh of relief from fie people, as it elimi -
nates the necessity for a general election at
present or in the near future. No one except
the campaign spellbinder wants an election
now. Nothing would be gained by it, as the
flnal outcome would probably leave the par -
ties with much the same numerical strength
they possess at present; the country would
be out the expense of the campaign; busines s
and industry would again become disorgan -
ized, and political strife and turmoil would
reign for six months or a year. Let us have
peace for a little while at least.
thirty years infant mortality too has fallen
from 241 to every thousand babies born to 71
to the thousand.
Press repor .s say that General Wu is the
most (engaging figure that has appeared in
Chinese politics for a long time. He has none
of the conceit and cunning that mar Sun Yat -
sen's character and seems to be free from the
chicanery and unscrupnlousness of that bandit
.risen in the world, Chang Tso-lin. He expresses himself well and patriotically. He does
not, he says, desire office, but the opportunity
unify China, abolish militarism, revive ndus-
try and gain the respect of the world. Of
course men who were not so modest as they
would like to seem have nsed such language
before, but somehow all that can be lsarnad
about Wu adds to the impression that he is
an honest, likable fetlow with more than his
fair share of brains.
Last year the price of forest fires to the
people of British Columbia was seventy mil
lion feet of timber. While the realities of a
timber scarcity are being gravely faced by the
people of eastern Canada and while the possession of a splendid timber resource is
assuring British Columbia of a great industrial future, with plenty of employment, 308
parties of British Columbia campers set at de-
Tiance the interests of the province and the
Dominion by starting disastrous fires during
the summer of 1921 Is this record to be repeated ad infiinitum until the forest properties
of this province are turned to charcoal? Will
another 308 parties of campers during the
approathing summer make the people of Brit-
. ish Columbia pay for their fun as they did a
year ago? In the ranks of professional guides
and sportsmen, it is everywhere regarded as
amateurish and unsportsmanlike to leave a
camp fire burning when a party packs up and
leaves. \ o boy scout, for example, will ever
"play careless" with any form of fire while in
a forest. It is against boy scout ethics to be
responsible for a forest fire. The gaowu-up
boy can surely do as well. The following precautions are exceedingly easy to observe
Never build a campfire against a tree or an old
log or on inflammable ground. Scrape away
the top cover until you reach gravel, or better
still choose a rocky shore or use a patent
camp stove. When you are finished with the
fire, put :t out. Put it dead out. Use water
or earth, but leave nothing smoldering. Never
throw away lighted matches or tobacco while
in or near the woods. Your carelessness must
be paid for at a thousand per cent and British
Columbia can't afford it just now.
A French writer insists that man could
live twice as long as he usually does if he
would abandou the idea that seventy or eighty
years is the normal length of life. Among
other interesting instances of longevity he refers to a certain district in Chile where in a
population of about forty thousand there are
more than twenty persons who have reached
the remarkable age of one hundred and fifty

while a major in the Chinese army, he was
converted to Christianity by Dr. John R
Mott and is a member in good standing of
the Methodist church. He is one of the best
of Chinese commanders. In discipline, in
cleanliness, in equipment and in. morale his
soldiers are easily the best in the country.
General Feng is a lover of athletics and encourages his1 officers and men to engage frequently in athletic competitions.
The annual summer nuisance, house

that flies came down the wind from Cuba,

A British firm of dyers has discovered] a
process by which material can by dyed in two
shades at' one immersion. A new dye sub •
stance called "ionamines" affects only silk or
artificial silk, whereas the other dyes, already
known, have an affinity for cotton only. It is
possible, therefore, by using cloth that contains part cotton and part silk to get different
shades in the same piece by one immersion.

Some interesting figures have recently been
published regarding conditions in New York

thousand. By 1921 it was not more than   11.
Epidemics of virulent infectious diseases have
ceased altogether.   Smallpox, scarlet fever,
hiphtheria, typhoid fever and measles, which
used at times to cause from 50 to 300 deaths
to each hundred thousand of the population,
have for years been kept down to 20 to the
hundred thousand.   Typhoid causes only two
deaths for every hundred thousand people,
and there has not been a single death   from
smallpox for nine years.   Malaria, which was
formerly a common and irequently fatal   disease, is virtually wiped out in New York.   In

St. John, N.B.—During the winter
season just closed the Canadian
Pacific Railway shipped 11,600,000
bushels of grain from the elevator
here. Last season's shipments accounted for slightly over 9,000,000
Quebec, P.Q.—The largest number
of first-class passengers that ever
eame Into a Canadian Atlantic port
at one time arrived here on board
the Canadian Pacific steamer "Empress of Scotland." The increasing
popularity of the Canadian route for
American travellers, which includes
a three-day crip on the majestic St.
Lawrence river, is evidenced by the
fact that it was necessary to have a
special train to accommodate the
passengers from the "Empress of
Scotland" going to New York and
other American points.
Vancouver. — Last year the Canadian Pacific Railway moved 5,000
cars of fruit and vegetables out of
the Okanagan Valley. This year an
increase is expected.
Mr. F. W. Peters, general.superintendent of the C. P. R., returned
recently from a week's visit to the
valley, during which he met agents
of the company and discussed improvements for handling this year's
New York. — The despatch with
whicb passengers arriving at Quebec by the Canadian Pacific Empress ships are handled is instanced
thus: Soon after the arrival of ths
"Empress of Scotland" at Quebec,
on April 30th the 168 passengers
destined for New York, got on the
C.P.R. train alongside, the ship. This
was at 9 o'clock p.m. Passengers
reached New York Grand Central
Station next day at 2.30 p.m., without a transfer from the carriage in
which they set out.
The "Empress of France" arrived
in Quebec on May 11th, bearing
amongst others, 135 passengers for
New York. These passengers left
Quebec alongside the ship at 9 a.m.,
arrived In Montreal at 2.16 p.m.
They had the opportunity of remaining in Montreal until 7.15 p.m., when
they left for New York, and arrived
there at Grand Central Station at
6.46 on the morning of May 12th.
Tokyo, April 18. — By Mail. —
"Here's Canada! Look at thiB! I've
been to all these places. Where's
my ranch?"
In this characteristic, rapid-fire
fashion did His Royal Highness, ths
Prince of Wales greet Canada as he
came to a halt before the 20 foot
illuminated map of this country that
hangs in the Canadian Pacific Rail
way exniDH ai -ne i onyu icicc __-._-
hibition recently opened. It was on
the occasion of the Prince's much
rushed visit to the Exhibition that
was sandwiched in among the numberless events of his official visit to
Japan, and the fact that he spent no
less than fifteen minutes at this particular exhibit may be taken as very
much of a compliment to Canada. -
The "E. P. ranch" in Alberta
which tbe Prince bought during his
trip was duly pointed- out together
with Banff, Lake Louise and Tim-
mins, all associated in the royal
mind with excellencies of one kind
or another. And then His Highness
had to see the railroad lines, steam-
shin routes (Atlantic and Pacific)
and all the "resources" of Canada
picked out on the map at command
of an electrician by means of the
8,600 switchboard lamps installed.
Kingston.—It is expected that the
name of the contractor who will
build the overhead bridge for the
Canadian Pacific Railway, which will
do away with the diamond at a point
west of the Grand Trunk outer station, where the C.P.R. and G.T.R.
tracks cross, will be announced soon.
The estimated cost cf the work will
be about $50,000 and it is expected
that the work will be under way in
the very near future.
At the present time, the track of
the Canadian Pacific Railway comes
from the north and runs parallel
with the Grand Trunk double track
from a point near where the Perth
road crosses the Grand Trunk track
to a short distance from the diamond. The C. P. R. after crossing
the diamond, comes into Kingston
after crossing Montreal street. The
C.P.R. engineers who drew up the
Slans have arranged that when the
'.P.R. tracks reach the Perth road
the new track will bear north for a
short distance and then take a slight
incline to the south and then cross
the Grand Trunk track at a point
where there Is a rock cut for a depth
of twenty feet. It Is the intention
ef the CP.R. to build a permanent
bridge across this rnck cut. Thc
new C.P.R. track after crossing this
rock ent will join the old track at a
point near Montreal street.

IT is not an unusual thing in these
** days for young children to cross
thc Atlantic alone. During the last
few months thc passengers on the
trans-Atlantic liners of the Canadian
Pacific carried some very young unaccompanied passengers. In such
cases the officials and stewardesses
of the ship take charge and see that
the children are well looked after.
In fact the children are usually so
happy on board that they are glad to

Miss Hilda Kershaw, a girl aged
) years, made three trans-Atlantir
trips.  First she went from Liverpool
to Montreal with her relatives. Later
she crossed on the "Metagama" from
Montreal to Liverpool. She afterwards came from Liverpool to Montreal in charge of a nephew aged three
years. Amongst the best friends of
this little girl is Captain Gillies of
the "Metagama."
A feature of the Canadian Pacific
ships is the play room and nursery
for children. Here they are provided
with all the comforts of home. In
case of necessity, medicine and nursing attention is provided.* Very often
babies are born on board, and the
circumstances of their nativity are
made so comfortable that they are
generally named after ****** oi the

Tke Metagama, on which tiie

Richard Bladworth Angus, born

the policy of bringing young bankers
from north of the Tweed to north
of the Great Lakes. Joining the
Bank of Montreal in 1857, ht be-
ranie general manager twelve years
la-l'er and president in 1910. In
1885 he entered a syndicate with
Lord . Mount Stephen and Lord
Strathcona, forming that triumvirate
which smashed the line of steel
through all obstacles, political and
natural, and reaping richly his reward.
Mr. Angus celebrated his ninety-
first birthday at his country houst
at Senneville. He was in fine spirits
and expressed himself as being very
happy. His health is now better
than it has been for some time and
Mr. Angus is looking forward to the
enjoyment of many more years.
All the members of the Angus
family were present at the Senneville home and all were at

Banff.—A long felt want of mountain climbers and those interested in
riding and walking over mountains
has just bttn supplied by the Canadian Pacific Hotels in the form of
an illustrated booklet entitled "What
to Wear, Climbing, Walking, Riding." The average novice intent on
enjoying mountaineering generally
proceeds to the mountains with a
poor idea of the equipment necessary. This little book gives all details about clothing and equipment.
Here are samples of the advice the
book contains:   <
A week before setting out for a
mountain climb prepare the feet by
rubbing with lanolin. Wear thick
woollen stockings. Wear leather
strap garters, nailed boots, large
snd of best quality. Bring a "rucksack" to carry lunch, camera, etc.
Tht booklet lays special emphasis on
tht ntcessity for strong boots,
and recommends "Prospectors boots"
when they can be obtained. A supply of tht proper kind of nails for
boots is kept at *-**/•* Louise.
