Largely Attended Gathering at Whioh Harmony
Prevails--D. McPherson
Is the New President of
the Association
"Tell me what you Know is tru*'
I canfguMB an well as you."
FRIDAY, APRIL 4,  1024
The General annual meet
ing of the Grand Forks  Liberal association in the G.W
V.A. hall last night was un
doubtedly the  most   largely
attended and most harmoni
ous gathering of the organization ever held in  the city.
Between ninety and one hun-
died members were  present.
The meeting had been advertised for the Henniger building, but early in the evening
it became apparent   that  the
quarters were too small, and
an adjournmant was made to
the G.W.V.A. hall.
The officers elected are:
Honorary president, Hon.
W. L. Mackenzie King.
Honorary first vice president, Hon. John Oliver.
Honory second  vice-president, E. C.Henniger,M.L.A.
President, D. McPherson.
Vice president.R.G.Ritchie
Treasurer, F. J. Miller.
Secretary, H. W. Gregory.
Executive—A. P. Molm of
Hilltop, Mrs. Alex Wilkinson
of Christina Lake, Chas. Fer-
rara of Fife; Mrs. A. F.Mich
ener, N.  L.   Mclnnes,  John
Donaldson and  Geo.  Smith
of Grand   Forks,   and   the
above officers.
Felicitous and appropriate ad-
dresses were made by Ibe retiring
president, Fred Clark, and by President-elect McPhorson. Among tbe
speakers irom out oi town were
Chas. Ferrara of Fife, ii. G. Ritchie
of Cascade, aod others, all of wbom
brought encouraging repo ts of tbe
Liberal cause in tbeir respective
E. C. Henniger, M.L A., spoke
at consideiable length and discussed
many subjects, but owing lo tbe
limited time at our disposal we are
are unable lo give the address the
prominence it deserve...
As an illustration tbat British
Columbia is making substantial
progress, Mr. Henniger cited the
tremendous growth oi the fisheries
industry during tbe past few years.
Tbe province's debt, he said, was
about seventyt-one million dollars;
but sinking fund monies aud revenue
producing debts (motley reloaned
by the government to districts for
public improvements) are deducted
it leaves a total of only about 135,-
00U,000—le88 tban wbat some cities
. By comparison, tbe speaker
showed tbat taxes are mucb lower
in British Columbia tban in tbe
neighboring state of Washington
The British Columbia mother's
pension act Mr. Henniger consider
ed tbe best legislation ever placed
upon any statute book.
As to tbe need for the expenditure
oi vast sums of money by the government at the close of tbe war, tbe
speaker drew attention to tbe fact
that 23,000 more men had been returned to British Columbia than
had enlisted in the province.

Gallagher's Pacific Great Eastern
royal commission bas passed into
history, anr' as predicted before the
investigation started, nothing has
been brought out to show that the
government has been remiss in any
way in its management of the railway. Confidence in tbe administration has been restored, ii it had
ever been shaken, and tbe Provincial parly is baaded for the discard.
Unfortunately, tbe cost oi tbe investigation has been heavy and a
great deal oi time has been wasted
in a useless manner. Tbe way is
now clear, however, for the govern
ment to devote its time to the
handling of public business, and
many important tasks are in view.

Recent Amendments
to the Game Act
A recent amendment to the game
act, which does uot seem t) be generally known, includes in the fur-
bearing classification wolverine and
lynx, two animals which up to the
present time have not been classed
undcj this head. The reBult is that
tbese animals came under the close
season regulations, and itis unlawful to kill or trap them, A number
of these animals have recently been
brought in, and to the disappoints
ment of those who had captured
them they were confiscated. As the

For the mo iths of January and

Vernon,April 3.—Tho serious situ-
tion confronting the Associated
Growers today by reason of tonnage
changing hands, which was the subject of an opon letter to the growers,
was very carefully considered at the
session of the full board of directors
which closed on Saturday last
The members of the board were
absolutely unanimous that tho tonnage
necessary to effect control must be
obtained, and tho resolution given
heJoundcr in full was passed:
"That we affirm that control of the
distribution of at least 80 per cent of
the tree fruits produced in the area in
which the Associated Groweis operate
is necessary to tho successful operation of the Associated Growers of
British Columbia, Limited, and with
out this tonnage the Associated
should not operate."
A committee consisting of Messrs
Barrat, Campbell aud Chambers has
gone to Vancouver to oor.fer with the
Vancouver beaid of trade in the arrangement of a series of meetings to
be held at various points in the val
ley during the next fortnight.
At these meetings the future, confronting the growers, both with and
without cooperation, will bo clearly
placed before them and will be foi
lowed by a determined canvass in
eaeh district for a membership which
will ensure the necessary tonnage being bronght under control.
Too much emphasis can not be
placed upon the fact that tho board
is absolutely determined upou r.o
middle course; that it is to be absolute control of the tonnage to the extent stated or recommendations will
be made for operations to cease.
It is hoped that thero will be a full

to those who were fortunate enough to secure
Notes, Notions and Notables
A great, deal of propaganda, verbal and
written, has boen circulated throughout the
country during the recess between this and
the last session of the Dominion parliament.
Sweeping charges of extravagance have been
launched against the present administration
by its predecssors in office. The ministry has
been accused of increasing the national debt,
of piling up deficits, and of multiplying expenditures. Early in the session Premier King
undertook to refute these charges, and in the
course of the debate which has followed, the
elaborate fabric of figures which Mr. Meighen
built during the recess has been pretty well
demolished. As a very effective reply to Mr.
Meighen's charges with respect to increased
taxation, Premier Kiug said in the course of
his speech: "Why is the burden of taxation in
this country what it is today? It is because
the country today is obliged to carry the whole
cost of the war. That is a statement that I
want to make here on the floor of parliament.
I wish to say that it has beeu left to the government that has succeeded the government
of my right honorable friend to pay every
cent of the capital cost of the war, iucluding
demobilization. During the whole period of
the war and of demobilization, those six years,
not a single cent was raised from the tax
payers of the country to meet the obligations
ofthe war.if we take what was left for that purpose after the government had met what was
raised for its own expenditures in other directions. That is a very serious situation, and I
say that my honorable trend and his friends
were guilty of distinct negiigance in the administration of the affairs of this country, in
that at a time when they were prepared to
conscript men to send them overseas io tight,
they were not ready to get after the men who
were making great fortunes during the  war.''
Speaking la-"er on the samo subject,Herbert
Marler of Montreal said: "The sad feature of
this situation is that when the opportunity
was before the country of imposing taxes upon
tbose who were making millions out of the
war such taxes were not imposed. Of course,
honorable gentlemen on this side of the house
arewell aware why the opportunity was ignored
—an election was in the offing. Hence, instead of imposing taxes, those who were rich
were made richer.^for instead of issuing war
bonds subject to taxation, which my right
honorable friend had a perfect right to do—
he could do anything under the war measures
act, even to the taking of money out of the
bank—he issued tax free bonds.- Of course tho
cry will go up from him and his associates,
'We had to work up greatjenthusiasm to ge t
people to buy war bonds.' But those bonds
are the very best investment in the country.
However, he issued $915,000,000 worth of
tax-exempt bonds—at least that is that is the
amount still outstanding. The interest on
these bonds—$45,000,000—is paying no in
come tax."
A professor at the University of Arkansas
thinks a tarantula little more dangerous to the
ordinary healthy person than a common spider
To prove his theory he induced a tarantula to
bite him several times. The poison caused his
linger to swell a little, but no pain remained
after two hours. The professor believes that,
if illness results from the bite of a tarantula, it
is because the victim's blood is in an unhealthy
A chemist has pointed out that a small
quantity of the new "sneeze gas" introduced
into illuminating gas during its manufacture
would prevent many accidental deaths.from
asphyxiation; and those who should try to
commit suicide by the use of gas would find it
impossible—uuless they sneezed themselves to
In proof of his contention Premier King
submitted the following figures:   Total deficiency between receipts and disbursements, six
years of war period, $1,084,179,975; less sum
spent same  period, war and demobilization,
$1,670,406,^42,   difference,  $113,773,733.    In
other words, up to the eud of 1920, over thirteen  millions  were added to the public debt
over and above the capital cost of the war by
the government  having failed to raise sufficient revenue to cover their expenditures   for
other purposes.    ''The real explanation of the
cost of government today," saiti Premier Kiug,
"and of the need for taxation is the manner in
which  the   governments of   which my right
Ihonorable friend was a member managed  the
■affairs of the country during the period of the
|war, and the period of demobilization  which
succeeded  it—the  outrageous  policy of the
government   borrowing  to  linance the  war.
The whole cost of the war aud of demobilization  was   thrown  over  upon the  men  and
vonien of today, including those  who  fought
the  war  and havo returned, aud the rela
tives of those who lost their lives in  the  nation's service. Not a cont was   raised   during
ie  period  I have mentioned over and above
s-hat was required to  meet expenditures  in-
burred on account entirely apart from the war.
(I'he capital  cost of the war and the cost of
lemobilization  was  met by loans—loans the
burrent interest and principal of which  have
i left to those of the present day to  pay.

Do you get the fullest use of your telephone? Of course, you use it to call up
a friend, or place an order with a tradesman, but do you always thiuk of it when
you need to do something personally?
How many times would the talephone
save you time? If a business man, how
much money would a telephone save you?
How many trips could be saved, if the
telephone were used instead?
The telephone gives direct and prompt
communication with that personal touch
which brings both parties to a conversation close together. That is why it has
become one of the greatest factors of
business and social life.

■j|TheObjects of thi- Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, are: "To provide a Home and Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the in tay of such unfortunates, who, for the lack of suoh service, perish every yo tr; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with nor mai, healthy bodies and sound minds."
£ |This is a large and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the verious provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the presant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
has yet been done for tbose helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the first home was opened in New York City; they have now homes
in 13 States, all doing excellent work. In England, some time ago, Sir Arthur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only one in the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Botud. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in tbe Baby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response is confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.

One of tbe most optimistic reports
ever turned in by tbe grazing branch
of tbe government is tbat for last
year. Cattle came through tbe past
winter in good condition and good
prices are expected from next

The Quality of Bulk Tea
The Quality of Bulk Tea is always
unreliable for several reasons In the
firxt place, being unlabelled its origin
is unknown and there is no one who
has any particular responsibility for
its goodness In the second place, it
is exposed to the air and therefore
very quickly loses its flavour and
freshness. Even if it were as good as
"SALADA" in the first place, it
would rapidly deteriorate and in any
cane it would be impossible for any
dealer to follow cohsistcntly the same
quality throughout the year "SALADA" always maintains an unvarying high standard, possible
through skilful blending.
THE story of the Winnipeg
forts of the early fur-trading
days—Rouge and Gibraltar,
Douglas and Garry, is among the
most interesting that could be
found anywhere. When Verendrye
came to the junction of the Bed
and Assiniboine Rivers in 1738 he
established Fort Rouge. The
Northwest Company, sixty years
later, established Fort Gibraltar,
and a few years later Fort Douglas, named after Thomas Douglas, the fifth Earl of Selkirk, waa
constructed by the Hudson's Bay
Company. Many stories are told
of conflicts between the servants
of the Hudson's Bay and North-
West Companies, but the feuds terminated with the amalgamation of
the two companies in 1821, and the
first Fort Garry was erected aB a
'fading post and   settlers' depot.
This was an elaborate structure
with stone walls, bastions and portholes.
On 1831 the building of Lower
Fort Garry, 19 miles down the
river was commenced. This waB for
a time the residence of the Governor of Rupert's Land and the
seat of government. In 1835 Upper Fort Garry was begun at the
junction of the two rivers and this
was the centre of business, government, education and public affairs for more than 30 years, and
was the nucleus of the present city
of Winnipeg.
The Fort was sold in 1882 and
the front gate, now owned by the
city and standing beside the new
Fort Garry, the hotel of the Canadian National Railways, is all that
remains of this historic group ol
