TWELFTH YEAR--NO. 30
GRAND FORKS, B. C, FRIDAY, MAY 23, 1913

A Traveling Man Flayed tbe
Bole of Prime Minister
for a Night
Ths visit of a commercial traveler
to tbs dty this week brought to
light s very good story, in which a
gentleman wbo is now in business
here played a prominent part.        ,
Some years years ago wben Sir
Richard McBride— he wu tben
plain Diok McBride—was on one of
bis campaigning tours, ba met in
one of the Boundary towns a clothing salesman named L. D. Bireley.
Tbere is a marked resemblance in
the features and stature of tbe two
men. Were Sir Richard shorn of
his flowing locks the likeness would
be all the more striking. The fact
that Mr. McBride bad met his double, made bin all tbe more eager to
seek tbe companionnbip of tbe salesman as much aa possible. Tbeir
dates in the various towns in tbe
Boundary and Kootenay districts were identical, ind tbey
traveled together. Many ludicrous
instances of mistaken identity took
plaos.
When they reached Moyie, Mr.
Bireley entered Bob Campbell's
clothing store with the mtmtioa ol
selling bim a big bill of goods. Premier McBride also walked into tbe
store, but he kept at some distance
behind the salesman. Mr. Campbell
knew that the premier was due in
tbe town. He bad never beard of
tbe salesman. It was therefore
quite natural that Mr. Campbell
should rush up from the rear of the
store to Mr. Bireley and greet hiin
as Premier McBride.
Mr. Bireley played the role of the
premier quite naturally, and spjnt
balf an bour in an unsuccessful attempt to convert Mr. Campbell to
Conservatism. Tben Mr, Campbell
introduced the pseudo premier to
bis two clerks. These men were
from Ontario, and did not require
conversion. After a general confab
on the political situation, Mr. Bireley introduced the real premier to
Mr. Campbell as tbe commercial
traveller.
The travesty was played tn the last
set. In tbe evening Richard McBride took Mr. Campbell to Mr.
Bireley'a sample room and sold him
sn order of goods, while Mr, Bireley
attended to the political wire pulling.
The latter task was [tht more dif*
tii'ult, because at that time Moyie
was mostly inhabited by sensible
Liberals.
others towards making rancor and
arousing bad blood between nations,
tbat journal is thc London Daily
Mall, lt bu not faiisd in tbe matter of war scares to make mountains
out of mole hills on every possible
occasion,, and hu become classed to
a great extent along with the Chauvinist press of France and tbe jingoes of Germany. It see* red in the
ieut suspicious ot happenings, and
Victorians will remember how the
editor of one ot tbe most responsible
oi German weeklies, whiie in Victoria on a visit, stated tbat the Mail
had done more to foment bad relationship between tbe Fatherland and
Britain than almost any other
agency.
Tbis then is the journal whicb
scouts Secretary Bryan's suggestions
for the promulgation of international
peace. Because be does not prate of
war and blood and glory, it sees in
him a crank and an eccentric in diplomacy. Happily the world at
large does not judge the peace proposer on the standards accepted by
the Mail. Civilization in general,
we truly believe, sees in Mr. Bryan's
proposals, however imperfect and
rough in outline u at present they
may be, tbe beginnings of a noble
propaganda wbich shall disseminate
in the four corners of tbe earth principles whioh* mankind have failed
to appreciate properly in the course
of nineteen centuries of enlightenment.
Tbs recent exposures in wbicb a
certain.section of the'German press
wu implicated with Messrs. Krupp
in connectien with tbe attempts to
rake up war scares in order tbat
armanents might have a readier
sale, goes to show to wbat base uses
unscrupulous newspapers can be
hired. Delibejately and with ma
lice prepense they set out to stir up
ill will between nations, which by
all the ties of race and kindred
sbould be as brothers. While it may
be true that "the pen is mightier
than tbe sword," tbere is also little
doubt tbat nothing can stir up nations to tbe baleful use of the sword
so mucb as an indiscreet or frankly
malicious pen. Mr. Asquith, the
prime minister of Britain, while
speaking at a banquet the other dav,
referred to the newspaper?* as the
unofficial amhaesodoYs" of Europe.
It ill becomes ambassadors to set
about unleashing the dogs of war;
on tbe other hand, the highest idial
of a true envoy of any people is Ihe
fostering in every -possible way of
elements of concord and mutual
amity.—Victoria Times.
Conservative Association Has
a Warm Session Over
Doukhobor Question
It is stated by some of those
wbo were present, tbat a warm
meeting of the local Conservative association was held in the Miners'
Union hall last Saturday night. The
Doukhobor question wm the principal topic, and the members were
not sparing in their condemnation
of the government's policy of granting these people special immunity
from the law. To add to the bad
temper ot the gathering, a letter,
dated the 12th inst., from the
attorney general was read. Mr.
Bowser desired to know why Provincial Constable MoDougald was
not prosecuting tbe Doukhobors.
Mr. McDougald, it is said, repiied
tbat he was powerless to do so, as
the government had virtually tied
bis bands. Both the provincial
constable and the police magistrate
expressed willingness to prosecute
these people tor infractions of the
law if authorized to do so by the
attorney-general.

Bryan's Peace Proposals
The London Daily Mail waxes
very cynical over the peace propo-
' sals of Secretary Bryan, and among
otber scatcbing cognomens dulis him
ns a "highly experienced diplomat
ist." Apparently the interpretation
wbioh the Mail pi ices on tbe word
diplomacy precludes any idea whatsoever of international peace, but is
rather concerned with treading all
the time sn the fringe of war, a line
which hu been taken so effectively,
and it might also be said, so disastrously by ths armer-plate press of
Germsny.

On a small ledge ln front of this

was attracted by the little man who
gazed earnestly and wistfully at blm.
'Ere, you, he called. Ain't yer

FARMERS LOSE
BY GRAIN MIXING
Facts Brought Out at Grain Investigation at  Minneapolis  Show That
Elevator Com|Mnies ar* Largs Gainers Through Bslng Allowed to Mix
Wheat.—Scandals Attached to  Investigation—Sample    Market    and
Mixing go Hand in Hand.
In the .ecent Investigation by the
legislature of Minnesota into methods
ot grain selling and handling some
very Interesting facts were brought
out.
The committee appointed by the state
senate had before lt last Saturday the
heads of the department of grain inspection and took sworn testimony of
th. chief clerk ot the chief Inspector
ot tbe state as well r*.s tbat of the
chief Inspector. Th* close relation
that exist between the sample
market and the system ot mixing by
elevator companies, which is permitted by the laws of Minnesota was emphasized.
Tables were :hown giving the number of bushels of wheat ... various
grades received at the Minneapolis
elevators and the number ot bushels of
the same grade which was shipped
out ot the sr.me elevators. The tables showed the figures for .. two-year
period, beginning Septem'jv.- 1, 1910,
and ending August 31, 1912.
The fact that tlie Minneapolis elevators received 15,571,615 bushels ot No.
1 Northern wheat during tbose two
yeara and shipped .ut ln the same
period 19,978,777 and had on hand
114,353 bushels, making a total of 20,-
093,130 bushels, .vas brought out. As a
result' of the privilege ot mixing the
elevators had galnei*. 4,521,555 bushels
of No. 1 Northern wheat from the lower grades of wheat purchased trom tbe
farmers.
The table of figures relating to the
receipt and shipment of the various
grades tell the whole story of the results of the mixing privilege. The
same co* dition ls found when the
figures on No. 2 Northern aro presented, even though the grain ln tbls grade
ls no*, so large. During the two year
period the Minneapolis elevators received 20,414,584 bushels 01 No. 2. On
August 31, 1912, they had shipped out
22,242,410 bushels and still had ou
hand 51,648 bushels, making a total of
22,294,094 bushels, or s gain ot 1,880,-
510 bushels.
When tho tablss oa No. S,  No.  4,
'rejected" snd "no grsds" whest wer*
explained lt trss essay shown whsrs
the grain tn No. I snd No. 3 came
trom. In the last four Instances
there was s loss ln ths elevators.
There were 9,777.081 bushels of No.
3 received during the two years. The
shipments amounted to 7,864,288 and
on August 31, 1912 tbs elevators hsd
on hand 140,624 bushels.    Ths total
01 No. 8 wheat, either shipped or on
hand, was 7,804,868* bushels. There
was s loss in No. 8 grade of 1,972,-
175 bushels.
In No. 4 grade ths elsvators received 2,812,658 bust-' 1 and shipped
out 624,433 bushels. I'he loss in this
grade was 2,188,220 bushels.
Ths "rejected" whest tables showed the same condition. In this case
there were 1,175,518 bushels received
and 621,778 bushels shipped out, making s loss ot 658,740 bushels.
But It was In th* "no grade" class
whero the largest loss appeared. Here
4,895,566 bushels were received. At
the end ot ths two year period 1,000,945
bushels hsd been shipped and there
was on hand 249,893 bushels, making a
total ot shipped and on hand ot 1,250.-
338 bushels and leaving 3,445,227 bushels entirely unaccounted for.
Cases ot individually owned elevators were also cited to the senate committee. One of these had received
215,142 bushels of No. 4 wheat and at
the end of the two year period had not
shipped out one bushel of this grado
and did not have ona bushel on hand.
In other words, every bushel of this
grade, the grade tor which the farmer was paid, was mixed and came out
in the No. 1 and No. 2 Northern
grades, tlie grade for which the elevator owner sold lt.
The elevator 1 .en who have testified before thc senate committee and
the house committee have argued that
the grain which they make, by being
allowed to mix IS largely offset ln the
cost ot tbe mixing process. This
fact ls vigorously disputed by James
A. Mana-ian, counsel for the house
committee, recently elected congress-
man-at-large for the state ot Minnesota. Mr. Manahan's contention Is
that the farmer ls the loser by many
millions every year under the present
system,
"When the elevator companies buy
the wheat they give Uie farmers the
prices prevailing that day for No. 2,
3 "rejected" "or "no grado" said Mr.
Manahan at one ot the sessions. "On
that same day, these satis elevator
companies aell a future on No. 1 and
2 for praotlcally that samo amount
Their experience has taught them tbat
they can mix the lower grades so as
to fill the future order with No. 1 and
2. On that very day they make a
profit ranging from the price they paid
for the lower grades snd the price for
which they sell the future on No. 1
and No. 2. In my opinion this nets
them a profit amounting to hundreds
of thousands of dollars. True lt Is
that there Is some expense ln the mixing process but even so I believe that
the elevator man ls making an enormous profit, a profit way out ot proportion."
F. W. Eva, chief of the grain inspection department, when asked regarding'
the relation of the system of mixing
with the sample market, eald: "A sample market would be of no value without the privilege of mixing. The two
go hand In hand. 1 believe that Uie
elevator men, having the privilege of
mixing, ca:. pay s premium for the
upper level ot the grade."
In another statement made before
the committee Mr. Manahan said there
was no doubt that the elevator companies are gettlni; much of the profit
that should be going to the farmer.

FRIDAY, MAY   23, 1913
The Victoria government's system of virtually subsidizing the
Toty press of the province has produced an array of todies and flat*
terers, who are disgustingly servile
to the wishes of tbe official*, from
the premier down, whether sucb
wishes are in the interest of the people or not. The news columns of
these papers are so notoriously
biased that it is impossible to place
any reliance in them. Last week
every Conservative paper in the
province published, under big scare
heads, the detail.) of a suit brought
against Mr. Justice Clement. Before giving undue prominence to
this action, these papers should
have had the decency to wait until
tbey found out whether the charges
are true or merely the result of political spite work. If true, we do
not believe that Mr. Clement will
find any defenders among the Liberal papers; if false, the less said
it the better it will be for everybody.
But while the Conservative papera
printed this incident with a great
flmrisb, by the aid of 36-point
headlines, Mr. Matson (of tb; Victoria Colonist, Vancouver News-
Advertiser and Nanaimo Herald)
has now had a month in wbicb to
explain what hs did with 145,000
tbat he received from the government, without having done so, and
not a word concerning tbs transaction
has appeared in a single Tory newspaper in the province. Such papers
sre a disgrace to present-day civilization, but nothing better can be expected ss long ss they sre conducted
by mercenaries who desert princ pies
in order to aligne themselves witb
the government of the day.
British Columbia is overrun witb
royal commissians at present. It is
tbe most flourishing industry in tbe
province. The ostensible purpose
ol these com missions is to gather
data that should be obtained by the
departments of lbe government and
by tbe members of the bouses, but
we feel assured that tbe reason
whicb weighs heaviest wilh tbe government is, to provide pleasant situ
ations at lucrative salaries for faith- ■
ful party workers. Tbere ie no sense
in electing a member to represent s
district, and tben to hire a set of
men to tell bim to do. Yet tbis is
exactly what the provincial government is doing. Witb his increased
indemnity, the member should be
•Tilling to take sufficient interest in
his constituents to And out what
they want. But, perhaps, now that
bis pay has been increased, it requires all his time tospend it. Some
of the evidence taken by tbe coui-
missonei-B is unreliable, and some is
useless. In many instances thc accomplishment of the commission ia
nil, or worse. We have the Doukhobor commission in view.

Premier JJnrdon's threat to reform
the senate in the event of the naval
bill being defeated in the upper
house, will not carry much weight
with that body. Even if Mr. Borden
wished to abolish the senate, he
could nnt do so without the consent
of the senators Coercion has supplanted argument and * common
sense at Ottawa.
It is quite easy to become a self-
styled booster. Take up a public
subscription to advance your own
interests, and then '"knock" your
opposition for all you are worth. It
is nnt all difficult, especially if some
of the people think as you do.
The latest dispatches from Ottawa
indicate that the senate will reject
the naval bill. It will be remembered
that. Premier Borden, in his Montreal
speech, made the statement that he
would appeal to the people in tlieevent
of the measure being strangled in the
upper house. With the fondness of
Mr. Borden's colleagues in the cabinet
for office, however, it is improbable
tbat this hazardous course will be
pursued. A fall session of parliament
is now hinted at. That will likely
be the outcome of the struggle. The
Ottawa government will not relinquish
.power as lone as it can maintain it by
gag rule.
The jingoes in Japan are subsiding,
and the danger of a war on the Pacific
is not as imminent as it was a few
days ago. Should trouble between
the United States and Japan eventually occur over the California anti

the people of this province would go,

Greenwood, and the funeral, whicb
was held in the Presbyterian church
here on Wednesday, the Uth inst, at
2 p.m , waa very largely attended, ten.
tifying to the high esteem in which
the deceased waa held. The service
was conducted by Rev. M, D. McKee
of Urand Forks. Mrs. Flood waa
highiy respected by all, but by those
who knew her intimately she was
much beloved, and her memory will be
held very dear. We have rarely known
one who walked so close in the footsteps of the Master, thinking only
and always of others She was a noble
type of Christian womanhood.—

NEW STRENGTH
INJHE SPRING
Nature Needs Aid in Making New
Health-giving Blood.
In the spring the system needs a
tonic. To be healthy you must have
new blood Just as the trees must have
new sap to renew their Vitality. Nature demands it, and without this new
blood you will feel weak and la .guid.
You may have twinges of rheumatism
or tho sharp, stabbing pains ot ceural-
gia. Often there are dlsAgurhg pimples or eruptions on tbe skin. Ill'
other cases there ls merely a feeling
ot tiredness and a variable appetite.
Any of these are signs that the blood
is out of order—that the Indoor life of
winter bas lessened your vitality.
What you need ln Bpring te a tonic
medicine to put you right, and in all
the world of medicine thore is no tonic
can equal Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
TheBe pills actually make new, rich,
red blood—your greateet need ln
spring. ThiB new blood drives out
the seeds ot disease and makes easily
tired men, \\_omen and children bright,
active and strong.
Mr. John Walfield, La Have Islands, N.S., writes: "1 Uke a great
pleasure In telling what Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills have done for me. I am A
fisherman and fifteen years
ago through hard work my
system became run down and I
could scarcely work at all. I lost in
weight; my blood became poor, and I
was very weak. I conBUlted several
doctors but their treatment did not
help me so I decided to try Dr, Williams' Pink Pills and ln a short time
I wae entirely well again. My wife
and daughter also used them with
benefit. We think so much of the
Pills as a family medicine that we always keep them ln the house."
These Pills are sold by all medicine
dealers or can te had by mall at 60

THE ART OF POISONING,   j
Subtle Mathoda Used by the Natlvtt trf
Central Afriea. j
[ Tbe Central African native Is s master ln tbe art of poisoning snd always
on the watch for it He will never
take a drink of water or beer or eat
1 of a dish, sven when offered by a
peaceful acquaintance, until the* host
has eaten or drunk some of it to pledge
its harmlessness. He Is always In
fesr of treachery, snd wltb good reason, for an assassin Is cheaply hired.
; Vegetable polsona may be raadh by almost any one, and the methods of administering them are cunning beyond
description.
One of tbe cleverest ways, often resorted to when s man gets Into bla
bead sn Idea tbat s neighbor Is injuring blm by witchery, it to kill ths unsuspecting victim by means ot poisoned stakes snd st tbe same time avoid
I suspicion, wblcb would Inevitably lead
to a similar vengeance.
Procuring little sharpened sticks, tht
murderer hollows tbeir points and Inserts poison (usually made by boiling
down tbe juice of certain shrubs ot
creepers) Into the cavities. These bs
secretly plants upright, but leaning a
little along tbe path which leads from
tbe doomed negro's but to bis garden.
Sooner or later tbe Intended victim
slightly lacerates his bare foot by hitting one ot these sharp stakes. Hs
takes no notice of the scratch, for ba
ls used to auch trifling injuries, but In
a few moments bis foot and leg begin
to swell, and an bour or so later be
expires in agony.
Tbe bark and roots of several trees
, and shrubs yield virulent poisons wben
properly brewed, one of which bos tbs
peculiar effect ot at once paralyzing
tbe organs of speech. Tbo gall of the
crocodile wben dried In the sun and
pulverized ls also very deadly. The
most fatal poison, however, is thai
prepared from an ugly, whitish tree
called njungu tn German East Africa.
It grows In only a tew localities, snd
few natives .will venture to cut il
down, for a mere prick wltb a splinter
will cause terrible and sometimes fatal Inflammation. Tbe negroes say
tbat neither moths nor snakes will go
near lt and that birds never rest in Itt
branches.
| To make this poison the wood it
burnt and Us ashes are mixed witb
! water and tben boiled down to s thick
paste. Tbe natives will travel hundreds of miles to procure this paste,
with which hunters anoint their arrows and spears and tbe bullets ot
then guns, dipping tbem after tbe
