Senseless Piffle
Guano Forks, Oct. 15, 1908.

Silt:—Will you allow nie, through
the medium of your paper, to ask
Martin Burrell, the would-be Conservative member (?), the following
If he believes in the expulsion of
Asiatics, and of British Columbia
being a white man's country, as he
stated Wedneskay evening, why
does he employ Hindoos on his
properties, to the detriment of the
white man? And if he is so anxious for the well-being of the white
man, why does he not give some of
them a chance to earn a living for
their families, instead of encouraging the Hindoos? I must say that
I have never before listened to such
a lot of senseless rotten piffle as
emanated from Mr. Burrell Wednesday evening.

Sunday School Convention
The second provincial Sunday
[school convention is to be held in
I tbe city of Revelstoke on October 27,
[28 and 29. The principal speaker
[will be Mr. W. C. Pearce, interim-
fttionul superintendent of the adult
^department, Mr. pearce is a very
■interesting and practical speaker.
IHe is the leader of the adult depart-
Tiicnt, the greatest movement of the
twentieth century in Sunday school
Ivork.   It is practically through  his
pffort that tbis department has be-
Bome so prominent during the past
tew years. Thousands of men
through the work of the department
Jiave been gathered into the Sunday
schools in all parts of- the North
American continent.   At thc recent
ntemational convention held at
I-ouisville, Ky., under Mr. Pearce's
eadership 1200 business men belonging to the adult classes marched
through the streets of that city, and
demonstrated to the public that the
Sunday sehool is no longer to be regarded as simply for little children,
but that it is for men also, and men
of the highest caliber. The Sunday
school workers of the province should
make a special effort to hear Mr.
This promises to be the greatest
religious gathering ever held in the
province. The general theme is.
"The Twentieth Century Sunday
School Organized for Effectual
Work." The different phases of the
organization and work of the up-to-
date Sunday school will be discussed. The Sunday school should
be the right arm of the church in all
lines of Christian effort, hence this
convention will endeavor to show
what the twentieth century Sunday
school should do in training workers in soul winning, in character
building, in moral reform, in reaching the homes, in reaching the neglected masses, and many other live
Each school can send the pastor
and superintendent, and one additional delegate for each fifty of the
enrollment or fraction thereof. The
provincial board hopes that all
schools will send full delegations.
Conservative Meeting
Martin Burrell, Conservative candidate for Yale-Cariboo, addressed
the electors of the city in the' Grand
Forks opera house on Wednesday
evening. The seating capacity of
the house—about 300—was taxed
Mr. E. Miller acted as chairman of
the meeting, and introduced Mr.
Burrell to his fellow-townspeople.
Mr. Burrell, in bis opening address, dwelt mainly on the Grand
Trunk Pacific and Asiatic immigration questions, dealing with the
former subject in accordance with
the dictum laid down by the Tory
leaders in the east. The latter
question was handled in a manner
to please tbe Vancouver Exclusive
league. He spoke briefly on both
subjects, and was followed by John
Mclnnis, the Socialist member of
the local house for Grand Forks
riding. The Liberal cause was not
Mr. Mclnnis took about half an
hour to make u characteristic speech
against the capitalists and cuptalisiii.
All tho old chimerical theories were
rehearsed by rote, no new ones for
Ihe hastening of the milleuiuni being advanced.
Mr. Burrell's closing address was
devoted to a complaint against the
government for deferring tbe election ih tbis constituency, and a rehearsal of the usual Tory charges
j'tgainst the Laurier administration.
] He closed his speech with a eulogium
to the Tory lender, li. L Borden..
Bosivorth-JeWH i.i.—On Wedncs-
day evening, October 14, at the

ceremony was performed by Rev,
W. C. Schlichter.
Change Made in One of Our
Most Prominent Business Firms
Grand Forks Fruit Captures
a Prize at the Spokane
A change occurred in the firm of
Mcintosh & Heron, dealers in furniture, etc., this week, Mr. N. D. Mc-
Intosn disposing of his interest in
the business to Frank J. Miller.
Mr. Miller, who is an energetic
young man, took possession of his
purchase yesterday. Both the members of the new firm are enterprising young men, and thoroughly
trustworthy and deserving of the
patronage of the citizens. The people can rest assured of receiving liberal treae'meiit from them. Mr. Mcintosh intends to leave shortly for
Scotland, where he will remain for
an indefinite period, having an aged
mother in that country whom he
desires to visit, but as he owns considerable realty in this city he will
return here at some future time.
Mr. Mcintosh has been an enterprising citizen, and haB taken a great
deal £of interest in religious work,
and he will be much missed by his
many friends here.
W. H. Covert, the pioneer fruit
grower of' this valley, returned
from the Spokane Interstate fair last
Saturday. He was awarded the first
prize for his display of Jeffries apples, and states that he would undoubtedly also have captured first
prize for his exhibit of Snow apples
had they not been bruised in transit.

i across the line about four miles from
. tbis city, swore tbat Jennings came
lo her house on September 27 and
remained all night. He had a revolver and a bottle of booze. He told
her that he had been mixed in a
shooting affray at Midway. During
the night, she says, he talked all
night, either in his sleep or awake,
about shooting. Two or three minor
witnesses were examined and the
prisoner was remanded until Wednesday, when he was again remanded until Saturday, in order to give
the crown an opportunity to produce more evidence. Jennings wns
formerly a bartender in Republic,

Geo. Chappie, the plumber and
bicycle man, went down to the Spokane Interstate fair last week on his
Indian motocycle. The actual riding time on the down trip was thirteen hours. Mr. Chappie returned
as far north as Chewelah, where he
has a plumbing contract.
Another moving picture show is
billed for this eity next week. The
theatre-going public of Grand Forks
have heen surfeited on this class of
so-called amusement during the past
few months. 11 is rather tiresome
to sit and watch a flickering gaslight for a couple of hours, ami the
fact that lirst-elnss pricesare usually

so does not in the least lighten tbe

away from home, having been missing since Monday. The boys are
both between 15 and 16 years of age,
and are said to be small for their
age. They had about $15 between
them, and are well supplied with
food and clothes. A watch is being
kept in this city for them, as itis
believed they are headed for Spokane. It is said that orders have
been issued to the police of the district to arrest the runaways when
Clark & Son's big sale has demonstrated that advertising pays when a
firm carries out the statements it
makes to the public. Some business
men hold a "genuine" closing out
sale every other month, and then
when the people become skeptical
they complain that advertising does
not pay.

It is reported that Harold Nelson
is shortly to play an engagement in
this city. This young Canadian actor gave promise of rising to the top
of his profession when he made his
debut, as a star a few years ago;
but too much undeserved praise
turned his head, and instead of rising, he stood stationary for a while,
and then went the other way. {n
this city he lost his friends by in-
duling in frequent curtain lectures.
Some improvements are being

The Vancouver Saturday Sunset
snys: "One of the compensations in
my work is the weekly pleasure I
derive in reading the local papers
published in the province. The
rural press of British Qolumbia will
take rank with that of any other
province in Canada, though I am
afraid it is not always appreciated
as it should he in its   own   locality.
Almost without exception, the weekly papers of llritish' Columbia are
clean, bright and interesting. They
I boost their districts, stand for what
! is good and wholesome in private
life, and most of them are ably edited. It is an'axioin in the newspaper
business that a community generally
appreciates its newspaper only after
it has ceased publication. Few towns
realize wbat a force for progress a
newspaper is. This is abundantly
evident in the meagre support accorded many of thc local papers in
British Columbia; A newspaper is
a public institution, nnd in modern
life is a necessity. Yet, many of the
supporters of a newspaper feel when
they for an advertisement in its columns, or the yearly subscription,
that they arc making a charity contribution to the editor. As a rule,
both the advertiser and subscriber
get a good deal more than they pay
for. The editor is constantly being
called upon for favors lor which it
never occurs to tbe recipient he
should pay. Few communities ever
think they should contribute as a
whole to the support of the local
paper, though week after week it
may devote columns lo tlu; spread of
information about the district—information that goes broadcast to the
world, and which is of inestimable
value to the town. But if a grunt
of a few hundred dollars were made
to the paper for this service there
would likely be an immediate outcry against graft. People wdio complain about the Btnallness and inefficiency of their local paper should
ascertain to what extent it is supported. Every editor worth his salt
want to produce a big paper and a
good one, hut no publisher ean give
more than he gels. If his support
be weak, his paper cannot he a big
one. One can tell at "a glance the
sort of support a,newspaper gets in
its home town, and the impression
created is distinct, and favorable according to thc apparent prosperity
ofthe paper, which lo most people
reflects that of the town in which it
is published. Not a few towns und
districts in British Columbia are remiss in this respect. Some have papers which don't deserve one, and
most of them have better papers
than they have a right to expect.
They starve tbe paper, and in so doing militate against their own interests. This matter is rarely discussed
by the papers themselves, and for
that reason those who should give it
the r attention seldom think of il. ,
The people of a rural community
can make no better investment than |
their contributions to the Bupport of
their local papers."

B. O.'s Superiority
The increasing demand for British
Columbia fruit in the prairie provinces
is being augmented by the carelessness of Ontario packers in packing
their fruit in contradistinction to the
great care taken by the British Columbia growers. The complaints being made against the inferior quality
and peeking of the Ontario fruit are
refersed to by the Winnipeg Commercial OS follaws:
Quite freqently we hew complaints
of improper', or even dishonest, packing of apples in barrels. Much has
been said regarding this infraction of
the law, but still some unscrupulous
packers persist .in putting inferior
quality in the centre of the paekago,
doing considerable injury to the trade
and injustice to dealers.
We have just received a letter from
a subscriber in Saskatchewan who tie-
sires to draw attension to this illegal
packing, as the apple shipping season
has now commenced. He asks us to
urge more rigid inspection of shipments to the west. This dealer continues:
Personally I ean say that tho Inspection Act has been of absolutely
no value to myself. Ontario shippers
have a bad reputation here, and they
have thoroughly earned it. It costs
the shopkeeper in these parts 81.00
freight per barrel to put apples in his
warehouse, and, therefore he does uot
care to pay this money, plus the
charge for the apples, foi stock lhat is
only fit to feed to pigs. In a great
many cases I should have been better
off had the shipper thrown his rubbish in the ditch, and sent me his bill.
What we, want up here is a class of
apple equal to that which is shipped
to England, and for which-we pay the
grower a higher price. Let the bottoms and middles of their barrels be
as good as the top rows. ' If their
consciences will not keep the apple
men straight, then perhaps the i eports
this fall of the increaso in British
Columbia business may stimulate them
to make au improvement in order to
hold their markets.
We have inquired among some of
the city dealers, antl we are advised
that while there has been great cause
for complaint in the past, apples appear to be more carefully packed this
year than usual. We invite our readers 60 advise us of any improper packing they may find, and  the   Commer-

The Epworth League society of
the Methodist church held their initial social evening on Monday, October 12th. Instead of meeting at
the church and holding their usual
devotional service, they gathered at
the parsonage, where a very pleasant time was spent in chat, games,
mtisic and song, refreshments, and a
short devotional service, which
brought to a close the evening's programme. Nearly forty Leaguers and
friends were present in spite of the
threatening weather. Is there anything that would frighten nr prevent
Leaguers, anyway?    Xo, nothing.
