WATER AND FAIR
The Two Topics Discussed
at tbe Board of Trade
Meeting
Committee Appointed to Ascertain Feasibility of
Irrigation
One of the most representative
meetings of the board of trade held
in the city for Borne time past assembled in the eity hall on Wednesday
evening, and was presided over by
President Hood. A number of important subjects were brought before
the board and discussed, and tbe
initiatory Bteps were taken toward
securing expert opinion regarding
the feasibility of establishing a general irrigation system throughout
the valley.
President Hood stated that the
principal reason for calling the meeting had been to obtain an opinion
of the board on the resolutions
adopted by the Farmers' institute
last week regarding irrigation and
the holding of a fair in this city
next fall.
Secretary Clark, of the Fanners'
institute, explained the nature of
resolutions adopted by that organ
izatiou. He emphasized tbe importance of both subjects, and declared
ti'eit the present was an opportune
*• time to make preparations for an
agricultural exhibition, as tbe
valley could produce the material
for one of tbe best displays in the
province.
Mayor Fripp congratulaaed the
board on the large attendance of
representative business men. He
hoped that the meetings would be
held more regularly in the future
than they had been in the past.
On motion of Mr. Fripp and Mr.
Manly, a committee of three was
appointed to act in conjunction with
the committees from the Farmers'
institute and the city council in devising means for obtaining an expert
opinion relative to an irrigation system, and also to consider tbe advis
ability of holding an agricultural
exhibition. The chairman appointed Messrs. Neil McCallum, D. D.
Munro and Geo. Rutherford as members of said committee.
Mr. Neil McCallum expressed
himself as being heartily in favor of
both projects. He was of the opinion that they would prove the best
advertisement that could be secured
fer the valley. Mr. Scott Galloway
voiced the same sentiments.
David Whiteside stated that Mr.
Kerby had informed him that it
would take about a month to obtain levels at different points of the
valley and to ascertain tbe feasibility
of an irrigation system, and that the
cost of this preliminary work would
be about $500. The speaker was of
the opinion tbat the best scheme
that could be devised to iraigate the
valley would be by the formation of
an irrigation company. It was too
early to give an approximate cost of
a thorough irrigation system. Mr.
Whiteside was also of the opinion
tbat the city and valley should be
more systematically advertised in
future  than   they   had been in the
Tne following resolution, offered
Mr. Whiteside, was seconded by
Mr. Fripp and unanimously adopted
by tbe board:
Tbat the provincial government
be requested to place in this year's
estimates an appropriation for a
substantial court house in this city.
Mr. Bolton gave a brief talk on
different methods of advertising a
community.
Mr. E. E. Gibson, local manager
of the West Kootenay Power &
Light company, stated that his company was interested in irrigation in
this valley and would gladly cooperate with the citizens in any
scheme that might be practicable.
Mr. Spraggett asked Mr. Gibson
if, in the event an independent irrigation co-npany waB organized, it
would be allowed to take the water
from the Kettle river.
Mr. Gibson replied by saying that
he was not prepared to say how
sweeping the charter of his company
really is. Mr. Gibson also pointed
out the great expense of constructing power lines for pumping purposes to isolated sections, and he
waB of the opinion the cost of this
method of irrigation would prove
prohibitive, unless all the land in
the district to which the line was
extended was put under irrigation.
On motion of Messrs. Clark and
Spraggett, the constitution and bylaws of the old board of trade were
approved, and tbe membership dues
were fixed at 50 cents per month.
On motion of Messrs. McCallum
and Spraggett, a committee of three
was appointed to furnish the C.P.R.
industrial department with information regarding any new industries
tbat may be needed here, and to
confer with Mr. F. W. Peters regarding the same. The chair named
Messrs. Mclnnes, Sheads and Manly
as such committee.
Mr. Wright, the real estate dealer,
dealt at length witb the importance
of thoroughly advertising a community.
Mr. Fripp, while heartily in favor
of advertising, thought tbat irrigation was of primary importance, and
he doubted the ability of tbe board
to carry out the two projects simultaneously.
Mr. J. D. Honsberger stated thnt
fruit trees could be grown successfully without irrigation here until they
began to bear. Mr. Al. Traunweiser
Traunweiser cited the fact that very
few orchards in the valley were irrigated, and yet they produced first-
claBB fruit. During dry seasons,
however, irrigation was needed to
properly develop the fruit.
On motion of Messrs. Spraggett
and Clark, a committee consisting
of Messrs. McCullum and Wright
was appointed to draw up a plan of
advertising and to submit the same
to the board.
After the adjournment of the
hoard, the committees from the
city council, the Farmers' institute
and the board of trade held their
first meeting. Tbe committees were
assigned separate territory for canvassing purposes, the country district being allotted to the Farmers'
institute committee, the West ward
to the board of tr.ide, and tbe East
ward to the city council.
Second Annual Carnival by
the Fraternal Orders
of the City
A Large Attendance and a
Social and Financial
Success
W. R. Williams, who has been police magistrate of Phoenix for a mini- j
lier of years, lias gone to Vancouver,
where he will probably locate. He
has been one of the McBride gov-1
ernment's most active supporter in
the Boundary.
The second annual carnival given
by the local lodges of Knights of
Pythias and Oddfellows at the Grand
Forks Bkating rink on Monday evening proved even a greater success
than the one given a year ago.
There were about 140 masqueraders
on the ice, and the room allotted
to spectators was insufficient to ac-
commadate the crowd. The costumes were the best ever seen here.
Tbe sum realized amounted to about
8280, which, after deducting legitimate expenses, will be donated to
tbe Tranquille sanatorium at Kamloops. The officers and members
of the lodges have put in a
couple of weeks of bard work in
order to make the carnival an unqualified success, and they deserve
a great deal of credit from the community for their praiseworthy labor. The merry-making continued
until midnight, when everybody
went home well satisfied with the
evening's entertainment.
The program of the evening, with
the prize winners, follows:
Best Lady's Costume—Miss Sloper, as Goddess of Liberty, won first
prize; second, Mrs. Mclnnes.
Best Gentleman's Costume—N.
Ross, as a little boy, first; Ed. Stuart, as 17th century gentleman, second.

Almas lirst, F, Taylor second.

L. Hall first, Nellie H undersoil second.
The next number on the program,
the broom ball game between the
Oddfellows and Knighs of Pythas
created a great deal of amusement.
The game was for amateurs, and
was won by tbe Knights by a score
of 1 to 0.

and Mrs. J. E. White first, Mr. and
Mrs. Medill second. \

DISGRACEFUL ACT
Victoria   Colonist   Forged
Borden's Name to Fake
Dispatch
Played Important Part in
Defeat of Minister of
Mines
The Victoria Week (Conservative)
says: The Victoria Colonist haB
had the most striking advertisement
of its career during the present week.
Indeed, it is not too much to say
that it has attained a world-wide notoriety. True, the notoriety may
not be the kind that any self-respecting journal would envy, but ii the
aim of all advertising is to get talked
about, it has achieved a supreme
success. On the 26th of October,
1908, Mr. R. L. Borden, the lead.-r
of the Conservative party, in re-
spousc to an invitation from the Colonist to furnish an authoritative
statement of his views on the subject of Oriental immigration, telegraphed that he was in favor of "a
white Canada and the protection of
white labor," To th:s dispatch the
Colonist forged the additional words,
"and the absolute exclusion of
Asiatics." For the forgery the editor of the Colonist is, by the ethics
of journalism, personally responsible. Ir, order the more thoroughly
to deceive the electors, the Colonist
published what it designated a facsimile of the dispatch. This facsimile was typewritten on a telegraph form so as to convey absolute
convictiou of its authenticity. Fui-
ther, the Colonist proceeded to comment upon Mr. Borden's declaration,
including the added sentence, just
as if it were authentic, knowing at
the same time that the most important part of the dispatch had been
manufactured in its own office. So
fur success would seem to have
crowned the enterprising methods of
those who perpetrated the offence.
In this connection itis only fair to
say that at the time the niaiingii g
director had not returned frnm England, and therefore must be exonerated from all blame in the matter;
it is safe to say that if ho bad been
in Victoria the incident could never
have occurred. The first time the
public knew of this precious performance was a week ufjn when Mr.
Burden, on the lloor of thu house,
indignantly denied tbe correctness
ofthe dispatch, and aiiiiciini 1 that
the last sentence bad been added by
thc Coicinist. It is also well known
that Mr. Borden haB demanded from
that paper an explanation, and those
who know him are convinced that
he will get it; when lie does, and not
before, the public will learn tbe
truth. At present tbey are being
treated to a series of evasions which
would do credit to the ingenuity of
a Pulitzer.
In the arrest nf Bill and Cleve
Newman and Bert Hurt the provincial police believe that they not only
bave the Hridesville hold-up men,
but also the desperadoes who committed the hold-up and murder at
Midway Inst summer. Thev were
arrested at Oroville lust Sunday by
Chief Constable Bunbury and Constable Dockstcader, assisted by the
sheriff of Okanogan county, Washington. SI|P Bvtting &un

Tho person responsible for the
forgery of Leader Borden's name
to a bogus dispatch in the Victoria
Colonist on the eve of the late federal elections should now be wearing stripes in the penitentiary, instead of being a free man. Tne act
was a disgrace to Canadian journalism, and a crime against the electors of Victoria.
Thc position of Mr. Barnard, M
P. for Victoria, is a particularly en
viable one. He defeated the min
ister of mines in the late eh ctions
by a majority of thirteen. Hud the
Colonist's bogus dispatch not been
sprung at the eleventh hour, it is
safe to say he would have been
short many times thirteen votes of
being elected.
It appears that, after all, the
Tcnies intend to place a candidate in
the Held to oppose Hon. Wm. Tem-
pleiiean in Comox-Atlin. In the
light of the recent revelation of the
crime perpetrated against the minister of irtines in the generel elections,
they should have the decency to allow his eleetion to be made by acclamation.
NOTIOE

Indigestion Ends
You ean eat anything your stomach
craves without fear of a case of indigestion or dyspepsia, or that you,-
food will ferment or sour on your
stomach if you will occasionally take
a little Diapepsin after eating.
Your meals will taste good and
anything you eat will be digested
nothing can ferment or turn into acid
or poison or stomach gas, which
causes belching, dizziness, a feeling of
fullness after eating, nausea, indigestion (like lump of lead in stomach),
biliousness, heartburn, water brash,
pain in stomach and intestfnes or
other symptoms.
Headaches from the stomach are
absolutely anknown where tbis effective remedy is used. Diapepsin really
does all the work of a healthy stomach. It digests your meals when your
stomach can't. Each triangule will
digest all the food you can eat and
leave nothing to ferment or sour.
Get a large 50 cent case of Pape's
Diapepsin from your druggist and
start taking today and by tomorrow
you will actually brag about your
health, strong stomach, for you then
can eat anything and everything you
want without the slightest discomfort
or misery, and that every   particle of
purity and gas that is in your stomach and intestines is going to be carried away without the use of laxatives
or any other assistance.

[FROM TUE GULISTAN OF BA'DL]
A short wise man is preferable to a
tall blockhead.
There is safety in unity, but danger
in duality or a multitude.
Bo good even to the wicked; it is
as well to shut a dog's mouth with a
crumb.
That man is indeed a hero who,
when provoked to anger, will not
speak in temperately.
Put it not so much into a friend's
power that, if hostilely disposed, he
can do you an injury.
Sanctity is not merely a change of
dress; it is an abandonment of the
world, its pomp and vanity.
The benefits of a sea voyage are innumerable; but if thou seekest for
safety, itis to be found only on shore.
Were a person to turn up the dust
of the defunct, he could not distinguish that of the rich man from the
poor.
It requires a hero to wear a coat of
mail; for what would it profit an her-
mophrodite, or coward, iu a suit of
armor?
By carefully avoiding whatever
part of their behavior that seems bad,
we may learn manners from the unmannerly.
The period of this life passes by
like the dust of the desert. Joy and
sorrow, beauty and deformity, equally
pass away.
If thou desirest to remain at peace
with a rival, whenever he slanders
thee behind thy back, speak well of
him to his face.
What purpose will   it
preach to the  gloomy-minded
A nail of iron cannot   penetrate  into
a piece of steel.
Be not offended witli mankind
should auy mischief assai! thee, for
neither pleasure nor pain originate
with thy fellow-being.
He will wander all around whom
God shall drive from his gate; aud he
will uot let him go to another door
whom he shall direct to his own.

An Oiler Which Meets the Special Wants of All Classes of Readers
The Western Canadian reading publio is made up chielly of these classes
Persons who have lived in the West for a lengthy period and are out and out
Westerners, and recent arrivals from the Old Country, from the United
States and from Eastern Canada.
Perhaps no one newspaper could cater with complete satisfaction to all these
classes, but by this combination offer every special need is met
The Weekly Free Press and Prairie Farmer gives a complete record week
by week of all happenings in the Western Provinces. In addition it has special
departments for American and British settlers. The Family Herald and
Weekly Star supplies the former resident of Eastern Canada with news of tho
Eastern portion of the Dominion in detail, and the Grand Forks Sun provides
the local and Boundary news, which you cannot do without.
They will not speak a word in joke
from which the wise cannot derive instruction; let them read a hundred
chapters of wisdom to a fool, and they
will all seem but a jest to him.
The loving kindness of the righteous, whether before your face or behind your back, is not such that they
    censure   you    when absent, ami
offer to die for you when present.
So long as thou art able grate nobody's heart, for in this world there
must be thorns. Expedite the concerns of the poor and needy, for thy
own concerns may need to be expe-
lited.
From one indiscreet person in an
assembly a host of the prudent may
get hurt, if they fill a cistern to the
brim with rpsewater, and lot a dog
fall into it, the whole will be con-
taiiiinnlcd.
Keep thy inside unencumbered with
victuals, that the light of gnncl works
may shine within thee; but lliuu art
void of wisdom and knowledge, because thou art filled up to the' nose
with food.
The braggart can discern only his
own precious person; he will draw the
veil of conceit all around him. Were
fortune to bestow upon him Qod'a all-
searching eye, he would lind nobody
weaker than himself.
Were our fortune to be increased
in proportion to our knowledge, none
could be scantier than the share of the
fool; but fortune will bestow such
wealth upon the ignorant as shall astonish a hundred of the learned.
If the hearer has not the faculty of
comprehending the sermon, expect not
the vigor of genius in tho | readier.
Give a scope to the field of inclination, that the orator muy have room
to strike tho ball of eloquence over it.

Now is the time when the doctor
gets busy and the patent medicine
manufacturers reap the harvest, unless great enre is taken to dress
warmly and keep the feet dry. This
is the advice of an old eminent authority, who says that rheumatism
and kidney trouble weather is here,
and also tells wbat to do in case of
an'attack.
Get from any good prescription
pharmacy one-half ounce Fluid Extract Dandelion, one ounce Com
pound Kargon, three ounces Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla. Mix by
haking in a bottle and take a teaspoonful after meals and at bedtime.
Just try this simple home-made
mixture at the first sign of rheumatism, or if your back aches or you
feel lhat the kidneys are not acting
just right. This is said to be a
splendid kidney regulator, and almost certain remedy for all forms of
rheumatism, which is caused by
uric acid in tha blood, which the
kidneys fail to filter out. Any one
can easily prepare this at home and
at small cost.
Druggists in this town and vicinity, when shown the prescription,
stated that they ean either supply
these ingredients, or, if your renders
prefer, they will compound tbe mixture for them.
