Immigration Inspector P. T. McCallum has received the following
telegram from F. C. Blair, Ottawa,
secretary department of immigration and colonization, relative to ihe
resolution recently adopted by the
city council and forwarded to Ottawa, urging the immigration department to take steps to deport the
eight Doukhobors recently sent to
the Nelson jail for refusing to answer census questions:
Ottawa, Oot., July 12, 1921.—
P. T. McCallum, Immigration Inspector, Grand Forks, B. C: The
city clerk of Grand Forks requests
the department to examine eight
Doukbabors witb a view to deportation. I bave replied, slating that
you will gives preliminary examin
ation with a view of determining
whether they are deportable. I have
also expressed the opinion that men
having legally entered Canada years
ago have acquired Canadian domi
cile and may oot be deported now.
Enquire and report by mail.—F. C
. From the tenor of the above telegram, there does not appear to be
much hope of deportation.
The local immigration inspector
is of tbe opinion that considerable
time would bave been saved if tbe
resolution had been referred to him
in the first place. Then he could
have made bis investigations and reported his findings to A. L, Jolliffe,
Vancouver, commissioner of immigration and colonization for the Pacific district, wbo would have taken
the matter up with tbe immigration
department at Ottawa. Tbat is,
presumably, the manner in wbich
tbe question of deportation of the
eight Doukhobors will now be
Meeting of Board
of School Trustees
All the trustees were present at
the regular meeting of the school
board last nigbt witb the exception
of Mr. Davis.
Arrangements were made to
change tbs school route so as to enable tbe vehicle to pick up children
at Mr. McCurdy'scorner.
There were twenty applicants for
the position of school janitor. J. 9.
McLauchlan received tbe appointment.
The resignation of Miss O'Brien
from the cenUal school teaching
staff was accepted. Miss Griffith
was appointed to fill the vaoancy.
The board decided nol to proceed
with the repairs to tbe Central
school owing to the high figures of
the tenders.
The board decided to allow tbe
children access to tbe basement in
the morning and at all times in tbe
day during inclement weather. Tbe
girls will be perrpitted to use tbe
school lawn for recreation purposes.
VVe must remember that many
towns in the Pacific Northwest de
pend on the appl'p crop for their
existence and it heboves'us to mak'
sure that the crop is well h irvested
and safely stond from incleme.t1
we ither conditions. When an apple
stops growing it has attained its perfection, and if by ov^rwatering o*
heavy rains it is induced to take up
too much moisture, waterenre maj*
start, which not only ruins the
quality of the pple hut also very
materially spoils its keeping proper
tieB It will readily be seen then,
tbat i definite date should be set to
have our picking done. From many
years'experience in the Okanagan
we find tbat a safe date to pick to is
"all off by the 15th of October."
Some growers have riticized this as
being too early, but we have found
all apples well matured by that
time and tbey have kept well in
storage. We have also seen many
apples picked after that date spoil
in storage from watercore and over-
maturity. We have Been apples left
on to color up a little more deteriorate very badly in storage, have no
flavor, turned quite mealy and,
compared witb apples tbat have not
so colored but picked earlier, very
much inferior. So, in hrder to keep
up the high standard of our apples
we must give thought to an early
harvest. If the supply of boxes is
short or for any reason not available, don't stop picking if the season
is well advanced; get some hay,
straw or anything to put on tbe
ground and pile tbe apples on it,
coveriug them witb sacks and throwing some hay or straw over tbem to
keep them from the weather. When
apples are picked io boxes during
tbe heat of the day it is well to al
low them to cool off before storing
tbem in Urge piles close together.
If the weather is fine, allow them to
stand in tbe orchard all night and
haul early in the morning. When
storing apples for home use see tbat
the ventilation is good, as apples
sweat wben picked and, when badly
ventilated, are liable to deteriorate in
flavor and keeping quality. Elimi
nale the culls at harvest time. If
tbey bave a value store them at
home and work them off later.
Give the No. l's your firat consideration; get them safely on the mar
ket. Tbe safest test of a cull apple
is, if there is a shadow of a doubt
in your mind wben the apple comes
in your hand whether it is good
enough to send to the packing
house don't waste time by turning
over three or four times; let il go in
tbe culls.—R. H. Helmer, Superintendent Summerland, B. C.

Plant Will Not Be Interfered With
Damage estimated at $30,000 was
done to a portion of the plant of the
Granby Consolidated Mining &
Smelting company at Anyox on
Wednesday night, when fire destroyed the roof .of the ore bins.
The Vancouver office of the company has not been advised aB to
bow tbe blaze started, but is in a
position to announce that the outbreak has not interfered wfih operations.
The fire was under control in an
hour owing to Uie united efforts of
the fire department and citizens, who
prevented the Hames spending to
tbe smelter.
The Granby company and tbe
Miami company in the United
States are said to be the only two

Ever at the Salute
Everybody—including the dogs
of Edinburgh—knew Dr." John
Brown, and as he passed along the
streets, his smiles and nods and
friendly words radiated in every direction.
He did not often raise his hat, an
omission which a writer in the
Cornhill Magazine says the gentleman explained in this way:
"My nods," he said, "are on the
principle that my hat is chronically
lifted, at least to women."
Deifying Dullness
An interesting story in E. V. Lucas' recent book, entitled "The Second Post," throws a charming light
on Sir. Walter Scott's genuine getiial-
ty of soul.
Scolt was liable to great intrusions
of every kind. A stupid, chattering fellow got at him by a letter,and
stayed a week at Abbotsford. He
was a great bore, and two other
visitors were obliged one day to retire to a window to avoid laughing
outright. Sir Walter hobbled up
to tbem.
"Come, come, young gentlemen,"
said he, "be more respectful. I assure you it requires no small talent
to bea decided bore."

Contractors Are Making Gocd Progress on
Cascade-Rossland Roud
W. T. Gwyer, of Pentictoo, district road engineer, who inspected
road work in thu Boundary last
week, stated that the contractors
were making good progress on tbe
CascadeeRossland section of the
transprovincial highway.
Tbe Davis contract for tho lirst
six miles west of Ross'and was
finished June 30, and final approval
has been given. Tbe entire distance
between Rossland and Cascade is
about forty-one miles. From the
west end of the Davis contract tbere
is a gap of twenty miles. From tbat
point the Tierney contract extends
for fifteen miles to Christina creek,
near Cascade. This eontract is now
being pushed from the western end
eastward. With the axception of
one mile all the clearing bas been
done for a mile and a half.
Mr. Gwyer expects that ihe coutract
will be finished by the end of September. Strong pressure, it is
claimed, has been brought to bear
on the dspartment to proceed with
the twenty-mile gap between tbe
Tierney and Davis contracts. When
this stretch is completed the highway will be ready for traffic between
the Boundary and Nelson and Bal
! four.

Winnipeg, July 11.—The Tribune
carries the following from its Ottawa
correspondent today:
A preliminary estimate of the
census department released today

Reformers have often advocated the com
munal kitchen, in the interests of economy
and labor saving. Why, it has been asked,
should a street of fifty houses have flfty kitchen fires alight, causing much unnecessary work
and dirt, when one kitchen fire might serve
for the whole group. The present coal shortage, says the London Daily Chronicle, has
made the question more acute, and in many
districts the baker's shop has already become
communal kitchen. Other districts, where
bakers are less enterprising, have solved the
problem in their own way by arranging that
one house does all the cooking for a group of
neighbors on one day, another house takes its
turn on another day, and so on. Ponding the.

Dr. Sun Yat-Sen is once more at the head
of a Chinese republican government with its
capital at Canton. The attempts to bring
about a peaceful union between the republican
reformers of the south and the military aristocracy of the north have failed. Dr. Sun and
his party are convinced that nothing is to be
hoped from Peking; that the government there
is so corrupt and incapable that it con not
long maintain even a nominal existence, aud
that when it "falls China will become a mere
vassal of Japati unless the republicans of the
south are organized to Iced the movement for
national freedom. Dr. Wu Ting-fang, formerly
Chinese minister at Washington, is foreign
minister of the Canton government. He has
already sent messages to the nations of the
world asking them to recognize it as the true
government of China.

A practice that has developed stronly across
tlie line is that of motor campihg tours, says
the Toronto Mail and Empire. The automo
bile party sets out for a ramble of a week or a
in inth, carrying small tents, and other camp
equipment. Instead ol payiug $5 for a room
per night at hotels, the roadside is utilized as
sleeping quarters. Sometimes the car is fitted
up. But tho cost of travel this way is small,
and exceed ngly enjoyable outings are possible. Train trips can not possibly compete
with Lhe motor tour as a means of seeing a
li'iiited area of country. The motor tent party
is becoming an institution. The more enterprising cities and towns in the States are turning the "rage" to their own account. Springfield, Mass., has an outdoor kitchen in a tent
pirk. In California the forestry service provides electric lighting, garbage receptacles,
benches, fireplaces, etc. Santa Barbara has a
community park, with full services, for which
a small charge is made. Fredonia, N. Y., has
provided special facilities. In fact, every progressive city and town will in a year or two
lind the need of auto camp sites as pressing
as having a railway station. More traffic may
enme and go out via these camps than by tho
station in the summer months. After all, is it
not a healthy development? The high hotel
charges in the cities are a terror, to travellers
of moderate meaps. From $5 to $10 per night
for *a room is only for plutocrats and those
who want to get poor quickly. The traveller
who wants so see things by rail has hardly an
alternative to patronage ofthe hotels, but the
motor tourist who can tuck himself up in a
sleeping bag, or make a rough bed on top of
a canvas escapes the principal cost. He has
only his gasoline, tire, or other car expense,
and simple meals which he himself ean pre
pare. If the motor car is an expense in many
ways, it can be made an economy in this way.

From near neighbor to distant cities

within the small compass of your telephone. The ears of people are within your
call; their voices are within your hearing.
Telephone service cannot be estimated

a revision of living and working would
have to be made if the telephone ceased
to operate. The miracle of the telephone
is realized at all times, and its ceaseless
service puts its value almost beyond price.

Quebec, through her shrines and

born and ored in the fold of the
Roman Catholic Church, To-day,
nearly three centuries since the
Cross and Lilies of France were
planted on the hills above the St.
Lawrence, the religious institutions
then founded still flourish. Soft-
footed nuns, cowled monks and flat-
hatted priests are met on every
hand as they go about their duties.

In a square among the little

The Canadian Pacific Liner Melita Brings Thousands of Immigrants.
The writer has recently put him
■elf in the place of an Immigrant,
truvellinR with a shipload up thc
St. Lawrence from Futher Point to

the gangway to thn big Government
Immigration Hall; watching then,

and inspectors, and experiencing tlie

fairly, helpfully, expeditiously—that
Is, all except the few who ignorantly
or wilfully have disregarded the
regulations and must needs be firmly dealt with, for the sake of Canada
aa well as themselves.
The laat leg of the ocean journey
is made over one of the most beautiful rivers in the world and amid
the attractive scenery of the white
little French Canadian villages and
a background of their long narrow
farms and the farther hills of blue.
The St. Lawrence makes a dramatic
approach to the newcomer to Canada. All are eagerly drinking in the
scene, facing with keen anticipation
the new land for which they are
heading, in some cases fulfilling the
dreams of a lifetime; in others, It is
a home-coming after a visit to the
motherland and the old folks at
Qroisc  Isle   mutt,  however,   be
reckoned with, the quarantine station of tho Government. If the passengers have a clean bill of health
from thc ship's doctors, there is lit
tic delay, for again Canada must be
safeguarded from possible plague or
pestilence.   The groat adventure for
most reaches a dramatic climax at
old Quebec, so rich In history and
romance, the eastern gateway to fl
•ountry of half-a-contlnent.
The Corsican lands at the St
Louis Embankment, with the Tunisian nnd the Melita following clos»
behind—three great C. P. R. liners
carrying nearly two thousand immi-
rants all in a forenoon. Soon al1
is excitement. From deep holds
emerge masses of baggage of every
conceivable type ana size, while
from deck after deck pour forth the
human stream from many lands and
speaking a babel of tongues. Canada is still the great magnet among
the western lands for the fortune
seekers. Every boat officer Is on
his job, as well as every railway official. Everything moves with precision, without friction or delay.
Everybody, moreover, seems eager
to help and to answer sympathetically the flood of questions.
Shipload by shipload the newcomers are guided into the huge
building erected for this purpose.
Soon single file lines form, some
passing the doctors selected by the
Dominion Board of Health, who
watch cloBely for any physical im
pediment serious enough to call for
detention or sending baek. Smaller
rooms with hospital equipment are
available for use.   Other lines, half
amlnatlon, based on the current Government regulations, which are now
pretty stiff. Those who past both
ordeals—and most do, thanks to the
increasingly efficient care taken on
the other sido of the Atlantic,—and
have the magic O.K. on passports
and entrance papers, are free to
enter or re-enter Canada.        a
Down to the big lower floor of the
Immigration Hall the successful ones
next pass. Here, too, is a busy scene.
Helpers from churches and societies
assist in making it easy for these
who are now new-Canadians, in
sending telegrams, getting their
money exchanged and tickets bought,
in locating baggage, in guiding
mothers with babies—and there are
lots of them—to the Red Gross Nursery, and the hungry folk to the lunch
counters and later to the trains that
are in waiting.
Here at the doors are the C. P. R.
men—and the directing official, who
has a big job on his hands in entraining two thousand people in a
few hours, assisted by conductors,
and guards, and guides, all doing
the finest of team work. The immigrant is well received in the land of
his adoption; he is helped on his way
to a full citizenship in this land of
opportunity and wealth for all who
toil and are amenable to its laws.
A final impression is the excellent
co-operation between government,
steamer, railway and all others who
form the reception committee for the
new Canadian. He is given the glad
hand and a warm welcome, nc matter whether he hails from a Bri :'sh
a foreign  land, and  is made
