Railway News
Winnipeg.—Claiming this year's
record for an early shipment oi
grain, the Lake of the Woods Milling Company on August 3rd moved
the first car of new wheat to ths
head of the lakes. The grain, whicb
came from the farms of John Siemens and M. Wodlfnger, of Rosen-
feld, Man., graded No. 1 northern
of fine quality. It was shipped from
the Lake of the Woods elevator at
Rosenfeld over thc Canadian Pacific
Railway to the Lake of the Woods
mill at Keewatin.
August 3 is considered the earliest
date in a number of years that grain
has been moved east.
The Model Livery barn,
owned by M. H. Burns and
Dan O'liay, and the adjoining
barn owned by E. Vant.on Second street, were burned to
the ground at 3 o'clock on
Tuesday morning.
The owners of the buildings
each carried $500 insurance.
Mr. Burns' loss on equipment
and building above insurance
will run between $1500 and
$2000, and Mr. Vant estimates his loss at somewhere
in the neighborhood of $1000.
What the loss, if any, of Mr.
O'Ray is has not been ascertained.
The fire brigade arrived on
the scene promptly, but the
inflammable nature of the
frame buildings made it impossible to save them, and the
firemen directed most of their
energies towards saving the
Gaw block ahd the McCutcheon cabinet shop, which was
by no means an easy task.
Fortunately there was no
livestock in the barns at the
time tho firo broke out. Tlie
city was also fortunate in
the fact that there was no
wind at the time. Had there
been, other buildings would
probably have been destroyed.
One of the firemen, our
local member, received a
rather severe shock by a
stream of water which had
been in contact with the wires
overhead striking him.
The following is the minimum
and maximum temperature for each
day during the past week, as re-

Carelessness by automobile driven
at railway crossings is still prevalent. On every occasion thj
motorists come off second best. The
railways are doing ull in their power
to prevent accidents. If they were
only met half way many fatalities
would be avoided and many automobiles and limbs saved from the
operating theatre.
A few days ago at Ayr, Ontario,
a man named VV. Zohr was driving
south in a Grant automobilr across
Northumberland Struct. He ran
into the side of a train, striking it
behind the locomotive. As a result
of the impact Mr. Zehr's automoblls
was badly broken, but th-j injury to
the train was slight. The train was
switching at the time of the occurrence.
Prescott.—The Canadian Pacific
Railway offers two scholarships per
year for the faculty of applied
science to minor sons of employees.
This year there were 16 candidates
in the contest, which was held last
month, comprising students from
Halifax, N.S., to Victoria, B.C.
George Harold Kingston of Prescott
received the highest number of
marks, winning one of the scholarships, which means free tuition at
McGill College, Montreal, for five
years. Mr. Cyril Neroatses, of Victoria, B.C., won second place.
Calgary.—Ronald W. Greene, of
Winnipeg, who was recently appointed assistant general agent of
the Canadian Pacific Railway ocean
traffic, with headquarters here, hai
arrived in the city to take over his
duties here. Mr. Green will have
offices in the C. P. R. depot and will
handle all Atlantic apd Pacific
steamship business in the Province
of  Alberta.
W. C. Casey, general agent of the
passenger department of the C.P.R.
ocean traffic recently arrived in the
city. While discussing ocean traffic,
Mr. Casey said that the addition of
the two new steamships, the "Empress of Canada" and the "Empress
of Australia" on thc Pacific ^oast
run, has ensured a 25-day service
between Hong Kong and London
and Paris. He said that Orient passenger traffic was reasonably fair
at the present time and believed that
traffic would be very heavy in the
fall, both to and fronv 'he t^inr4-
Controlled Distribution
of All British Columbia
Fruit Shipped to Prairie
Market Is Needed
Popular Varieties of
Apples in England
To ascertain the appreoiation of
tbe different varieties of apples in
Oreat Britain, J. Forsyth Smith,
Dominion fruity commissioner, made
up a questionaire and gave it to
some seventy of the wholesale buyers of boxed apples in the United
Kingdom, asking them to mark opposite each variety on the list the
figures 1. 2, 3, 4 to indicate that in
tlieir judgment it wns either, (1) a
popular variety in strong demand;
(2) a Ions popular variety but still
acceptable; (8) a vnriety of which
limited quantities only should be
shipped; (4) i definitely unacceptable variety.
The following varieties were
placed in Class 1 by a majoriiy of
votes: Jonathan, Newtown, Cox,
Winesap, Spy, Mcintosh, Spifzen-
be g, Winter Banana. The Johna-
than received the best vote of all,
68 dealers placing it in Class 1 and
three in Class 2. The Newtown was
next with 60 votes for Class I and G
for Class 2. Then followed Cox with
60 for Class 1 and 6 for Class 2,
Winesap with I!) for Class 1 and 19
for Class 2, Spy with 46 for Class 1
end 18 for class 2, Mcintosh with
43 for Class 1, 17 for CIsbs 2, 7 for
Class 3 and 2 for Class 4; Spitzenberg with 39 for Class 1, 20 for Class
2; Wealthy with 29 lor Class 1, 28
for Clnss 2, 10 for Class 3 and 1 for
Class 4, and Winter Banana with
20 votes for Class 1, 19 for Class 2,
11   for Class 3 and 8 for Class 4.
Calgary,     Alta.,    August   30.—
Conditions    on     the   prairies   are
improving slowly   from   a  financial
standpoint.    Many   shipment*     of
pears,   peaches,  plume  and   apples
are    arriving    from    Washington.
Mostly all varieties shipped   in  are
in direct  competition   witb   British
Columbia, and tbe same   applies to
Ontario shipments.    If competition
against   other   parts were the   only
difficulty, it would be rapidly solved
and British Columbia would  be in
possession of the lion's share  nf all
prairie market.   Jobbers   complain
tbat they are losing money  instead
of making it in what should be their
harvest time.    The  reason is,   there
are ton many "free lance"   shippers
in   British   Columbia wbo sell for
circles of growers,  and  the   chief
point iu tbeir sales seems to be, gelling a little below   the   co-ordinated
shipper's price.    If they do not  aun
thorize this direct, tbe  houses  they
consign to proceed to Mo so—the result is the same. The (ault doeB  not
lie in tbe number   of   shippets, but
in their "tree lance" tactics.    A  lot
is heard about "(lumping Washington fruit here" and this   is  true   to
some extent   and   will be  regulated
within   a few days by   the  application of the dumping  clause.    When
it does   apply   conditions  will   not
improve, due to   uncontrolled  con*
aignments. British Columbia  growers  will   not   be  able to make ends
meet   untii   they   have a   stronger
check upon their ''free lance"   shippers   aod   those   they   consign  to.
Some of these shippers are members
ol the Traffic &  Credit   association.
It appears that a controlled distribution of all   British   Columbia fruit
shipped to prairie points is   needed,
not so muoh to secure higher prices,
but for tbe  purpose of  preventing
those to wbom it is consigned  from
breaking  the   market unnecessarily
and to secure intelligent market information.    Some   brokers   of our
Hritish Columbia   growers are importing   fruit   in uur season from
Washington in   direct   competition
with British Columbiu grown   fruit.
They have reasons for this. It shows
that much consideration   is  needed
in arranging  for  marketing among
Htitish Columbia organizations to
correct this chaos,   and  make  marketing   less   of   a  gamble    botb to

KltlDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 1922
An attempt is apparently being made to in
ject a sectional element into the railway agreement bylaw, on which a vote is to be taken
next Tuesday, and to make it appear that it
is merely a fight between two different portions of the city. This is wrong. The principal item involved in the question is purely
one of dollars and cents. If you believe that
the "running of a couple of passenger trains
daily through the heart of the city is sullieient
compensation for exempting thc railway companies from taxation and granting them concessions not enjoyed by the ordinary taxpayer,
you will probably vote for the agreement; if
you believe that all tax- and rate-payers,
whether great or small, should be treated
alike in que matter of supporting the municipality, the chances are that you will vote
against it.
Local opinion is by no means unanimous
that the city is benefited to any extent whatever by the business district being cut in two
with railway tracks. It has not added to the
beauty of the city. It has not increased the
convenience of the public, if we except half a
dozen people living in the immediate vicinity
of the downtown depot. But it has increased
the danger to life and added to the inconvenience of the public. A number of bad accidents have already occurred between the
depot and the river, and a steady increase in
these may be looked for as the city increases
in population.
A favorite contention of those who favor
the agreement is, that the running of trains
through the city affords the traveling public
a better view of the city. This is a specious
argument. A person being backed into the
town over a slough route, and taken out of it
the ssme way, has seen very little of Grand
Forks, and is not liable to g) away with a
very exalted opinion of the city. On the other
hand, if lie alights at a little more pretentious
station, is taken by auto stage through one of
our best residential streets, and past practically all of our handsome pablic buildings, to
the hotel district, he will have seen enough of
the town to form a correct idea of it. After
all, it is the attractiveness of the residential
section of a city that is the final factor in making the homeseeker decide whether to locate
in it or not. That is Grand Forks' best drawing card at present.
amount—a mere trifle. I might also state that only
the special business interests wers represented at this
special meeting, and I together with several others
were especially informed at the door of tbe council
chamber that the meeting was private.
It is thiB misrepresentation of facts which often
causes tbe property owners of a municipality to vote
against their own best interests. It was done in 1912,
and indications point to the fact that it will be tried
Did any person ever hear of tbe C.P.R. or any other
well managed business corporation spending thousands
of dollars of their hard-earned profits without receiving
in return a value of a like amount?
Do the majority of property owners and ratepayers
of Grand Forks think our water and light rates and our
taxes are high enough? Does it help to lower them by
giving the C.P.R. all the water it uses at 150 per month
for200,000 gallons daily, or about 6,000,000 gallons
per month? This figures out at about 1200 gallons for
eacb cent invested in water. At tbis rate, and allowing
a property owner 500 gallons per day for domestic pern
poses, it should only cost us 12J cents per month. And
bow much do we pay for lights, as compared to what
this agreement promises to supply it to the C.P.R.? We
pay 13 cents, while they pay 2J cents, or a little over
five times as much. Is it consistent or fair that the
property owners who are satisfied with the depot which
served us until 1912 should be asked to donate in the
form of higher taxes and higher water and light rites
for the benefit of those "special business interests" who
alone benefit by tho maintenance of the two depots?
How much needed improvements could be accomplished yearly with the money paid for a dual passenger service? How many noxious weeds could be cut
from where our sidewalk" used to be? How much more
beautiful could our streets and boulevards be made to
tbe eyes of an intending homeseeker, and, with what's
left, how many hungry children could be helped
through the winter when employment is scarce.
Let us for a brief space look into the incentive to continue this agreement as compared to 1912-13 aod 1914.
There were from three to five freight crews working out
of here daily then, where now there is not fhree to five
a week, Those men and their families were living here
then, but have gone. The roundhouse crew and the car
repairing gang numbered quite a contingent. I think
there are one or two here now. The C.P.R. bas acted
in good faith, and only through force of circumstances,
such as a great slump in mining activity in our immediate locality, a universal depression in the business
world, etc., were they obliged to transfer many of their
workers to more remunerative fields.
Conditions have indeed changed materiafly since this
agreement was first voted on in 1912, and will no longer, to my way of thinking, permit the average property
owner the luxury and additional expense of a depot in
each end of the town.
In conclusion, 1 claim your indulgence to state that
a ratification of this agreement, now expired, leads up
to a "possible" joint railway and traffic bridge on Third
street. Do the hardworking property owners of this
city stop to realize what their portion of cost would be?
Get busy and do a little figuring on 50 per cent of the
cost of a new steel bridge, with concrete piers, which
would cost in the neighborhood of $120,000, and then
try to conform those figures with the revenue aud borrowing power of any municipality the size of Grand
Fork". And above all things, when you go to cast yodr
ballot on tbe 5th inst., do not bs persuaded that the
C.P.R. will "pull up stakes" here if you do uot vote
My earnest request is tbat after reading this you will
do a little thinking on your own account: that yo u
will seek the true facts, ooncerning which so mucn misrepresentation has been made, and on Tuesday next
cast your ballot in your own best interests and in the
interests of your fellow property owner.

Editor Grand Forks Snn:
On the 5th of this month the property owners of
Graud KJJrkn will have an opportunty to vote for or
against the continuance of an agreement entered into
by them with the Canadian Pacific railway in 1912,
such agreement having expired in June of this year.
I would like tt) make a few statements relative to this
agreement being continued, and if the facts here presented serve to awaken the majority of the,property
owners here to a sense of their own best interests, I will
have accomplisqed wbat 1 set out to do.
Let us consider briefly the cost to the ratepayers of
thin eity for the privilege of having two depots. One of
tbe C.l'.K. jofiicials stated at a special meeting of thc
city council that it cost the company in the neighbor
hood of S.'J^OO yearly to run their trains down town.
This surely was a revelation to me, especially in view
of the fact tbat a member of the present city council
told me flat footed that the money lost to the city
through tbe exemption of tbe CP.R. and Kettle Valley
railway from taxation within the city limits, and water
and ligbt at i;ost for tbe  C.P. K., was only  a negligible

To most people the connecting or disconnecting of a telephone seems a simple
operation of installing or removing the
instrument. As a matter of fact, in every
case it necessitates changes in the cables
and wires overhead or underground. It
also necessitates changes in central office
wires and switchboard connections; in
subscribers' accounts and directory iist-
ings; and frequently requires new "drop"
lines from open wires or cables. The
problems of station movement are among
the large problems of telephone service.
Because of the double operation of disconnecting and reconnecting, the work
iuvolved is often twice as great as in the
case of new subscribers.

THE history of golf in Canada is
a long story. The first game
played on this continent took place
m this country and the development
of the game here has gone forward
with rapid strides. To-day the Dominion is dotted with links noted
for their excellence from St. An-
drews-by-the Sea in New Brunswick,
to Vancouver in British Columbia.
Guests are welcome everywhere and
United States experts like "Chick"
Evans and Oswald Kirby are unanimous in declaring that the quality of
Canadian golf is very high. Canada's first club was the Royal Montreal founded in 1873 about .fifteen
years before St. Andrews Golf Club,
the first in the United States, was
started in Yonkers, N.Y.
l's   St.   Andrews-by-the-Sea
is a seaside course uji Passama-
quoddy Bay, an estuary of the Bay
of Fundy so near Mafne that a long
driver could almost put one over the
international fence. St. Andrews is
not a name to be taken lightly, and
when Sir William Van Home and
Lord Shaughnessy had the 6,100 yard
New Brunswick links laid out, they
made it worthy of its great Scotch
namesake, the mother links of the
golf world. Many of the holes are
on sloping ground with the picturesque panorama of the bay in one
direction, and the green forests in
another. In addition to the regular
18-holes, there is a 9-holes course
for ladies and the AlgonasJn is headquarters for golfers.     ****
The   Canadian   government  owns
and manages at Banff, Alberta, one
oi lin; must interesting anil pit*
turesque links in the world. Banff
Golf Course, this year expanded to
18 holes, is nearly a mile above sea-
level along the banks of the Bow
River. From the edge of the fairways majestic mountains tower a
mile above the links and the golfer
enjoys his favorite sport in a scenic
setting of unforgettable beauty. Now
and then the "gallery" watching the
game Is augmented by wild mountain goats who peer down from some
lofty ledge at the players. The links
are in charge of a competent professional and are a fine test of the
Farther west Vancouver and Victoria enjoy golf both summer aod
winter on links which are a delight
to both expert and novice.

Vancouver. — With every hotel
along the Canadian Pacific Railway
taxed to capacity, and with the
coastwise steamship offices reporting a greater volume of travel than
ever before in their history, Western
Canada is enjoying a tourist traffic
this year that has never been
equalled in past seasons.
During the past few days it has
been necessary for the majority of
the hotel motor buses to make four
and five trips to the hotels from the
steamers in order to accommodate
the incoming passengers, and the
trains both from the east and from
local points have been similarly
well filled with visitors.
"Tourist traffic over C.P.R. western lines is far greater than it was
in 1921," said General Passenger
Agent H. W. Brodie on his return
from an inspection trip which carried him as far as Banff. "Travel
Is now at its full height and many
Americans are seeing Canada. Trains
both east and westbound are well
filled, and Western Canada is enjoying a great summer season."
All the mountain resorts along
the main line of the C.P.R. are
being well patronized, and the Arrow
Lakes and Okanagan scenic points
are also thc Mecca for hundreds of
tourists from the American side.
Boats bound for Alaskan ports
are being well filled every trip,
ferry steamers between
Island and Seattle and

•very  trip
The opening of the Banff-Lake
Louise road through the mountains
has done much to bring a large volume of auto tourist traffic to Canada this year, state C. P. R. officials,
and when the Banff-Windermere
highway is opened this fall it is expected that there will be another
large volume of tourist traffic diverted through British Columbia.
"Many cars are coming from
Spokane and Seattle up through
Lethbridge into Banff and Lake
Louise," says Col. Clarence Lougheed
of Calgary, "and whon the highway right through the mountains
is completed both Alberta and British Columbia will get a large volume
of auto traffic annually. Hundreds
of cars have come through Alberta
this year, and they would continue
on and return to the United States
by way of Vancouver if the roads
were open.' Alberta autoists are also
anxiously awaiting the completion of
tha roads through and it will undoubtedly mean a big thing every
year to British Columbia." i

It should make but little
difference to the C. P. li.
whether it expends thirty-two
hundred dollars -a year for
backing its trains down town
or pays a like sum in taxes to
the chy of Grand Forks. But
we shauld think it would prefer to pay the taxes, especially
as by so doing it conld shorten its schedule about half an
hour, and the money thus expended would be of greater
value to a majority of the taxpayers of the city.
What other cities have done
your city can do in proportion

Mere Sound and Fury
A lank, disconsolate-looking person stood on the steps
ofthe town hall during a political meeting. ''Do you
know who's talking in there
now," demanded a stranger
briskly, pausing for a moment
beside him. "Or are you just
going in?"
"No, sir; I've just come
out," said the man decidedly.
"Congressman Snifkins is
talking- in there."
"What about?" asked the
"Well," said the man, passing his hand across his forehead in a puzzled manner,

Dad O'Shea and

DaJ O'Shea owns an extensive apple orchard, and ho and his five stalwart sona run it "to suit ourselves,'
though not always with the best results. Across tho way Raymond Barlow, an eastern college man and
"book farmer," owns an equally ex-
tsnsive orchard and somehow, much
to Dad's chagrin, succeeds in making
money out of it. Dad seems to take
it as a personal affront that Barlow
actually makes a financial success of
But in spite of limited returns

The Sun appeared in a uew dross and an enlarged form.
Tlio event elicited this editorial comment: "The future

The lacrosse match between tho Buffers and the Duffers
at lhe Athletic park Wednesday was won by the former
team liy a score of 2 to 1. From a farcical standpoint the
game was a deciiied success, for it proved to be a series of
comedies of errors—just what the promoters  intended  it
should be. Fortunately but one man—Coolgardie Smith—
was disabled.    He received an ugly cut on the head, which
dazed him for a few moments, but he took the accident
good naturedly, and ihe ottending physician,after a hasty
examination, issued a bulletin in which he expressed  the
opinion that the man would live. But Smith was put in a
state of innocuous desuetude during the remainder of the
game.   Of course  there were good individual plays, but
they occurred at distant intervals and  from   unexpected
sources, and the sun was obscured by a cloud of dust at
the moment they were made. For these reasons  we are
unable to give credit where credit is due. But the players
accomplished  their object—they amused the spectators.
When  the fact is taken into consideration that business
was suspended during to progrees of  the game,   the   at«
tondance was not as large as  it should  have  been.    The
proceeds  will   bo   devoted to charitable purposes.    The
