At a meeting of practically all the
landowners of tbe proposed Grand
Forks improvement district, tbe
present irrigation committee was
empowered to engage ao engineer
to carry on tbe preliminary work as
soon as tbe letters patent are issued.
It is hoped tbat two or three weeks'
time in the installation ot the irrigation system will be gained by
adopting this course.
The meeting was held in the G.
W.V.A. rooms, and was presided
over by T.Padgett, chairman of tbe
irrigation committee. Tbe subject
wu pretty thorough discussed, and
all those present seemed to be satisfied with the action taken.

Platinum, although a mineral
which is known to exist in large
quantities in British Columbia, bas
never been produced to fny great
extent. Mr. Marsh bas great faith in
his property, wbich if developed
successfully, will result in a great
impetus in prospecting for this vala
able mineral.
Platinum is among tbe minerals
found in various deposits in tbe
Similkameen. Assays of ore taken
from claims near Olalia have re
vealed it in small quantities and the
sands of the beds of the Tulameen
and Similkameen rivers are also said
to carry small values of tbe valuable
Water Users Must
Pay for Irrigation
$405,490 Collected in
Motor Gar Licenses
In answer to a question raised by
W. Jones, South Okanagan, in
the legislature last Friday, Attorneys
General Farris submitted figures
showing tbat a total of $405,490 was
collected in motor licenses last year.
Victoria, March 6.—Dealing further with tbe amendments to tbe
Water act, in moving the seoond
reading of tbe bill, Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister of lands, augmented
the statements given out aud published when tbe act was introduced.
He said tbe government had adopted
aud was following a policy of making the water user pay. Criticisms
had been off. red by tbe opposition
members to the effect tbat tbe
charges for irrigation work should be
a burden on tbe whole of the province. This could not be permitted,
said the minister, wbo felt tbat the
government's irrigation policy was
one of the ontstanding blessings
Wbioh bad come to tbe residents of
the province.
Hon. Mr. Pattullo paid tribute to
Water Controller Cleveland, a man,
ha said, who was doing splendid
work for tbe public. E ven the peo
pie in the dry belt were well pleased
with tbe government's policy.
"They din't endorse it at the last
election by electing Liberals," interjected J. W. Jones, of South Okanagan.
"No," said tbe minister. "They
figured it out this way: If Jones can
get free water, si much the better.
But we. are all right anyway."
Among tbe otber minor details of
business on Friday was the presentation of a petition by F. W. Anderson, Liberal member for Kamloops,
a petition signed by 160 people and
asking tbat the Chinese born in tbe
province of naturalized parents be
given the franchise.
Washington, March 7.—During
tbe early pBrt of the week, centering
on March 20 a warm wave of wide

Tbe warm wave is always considered tbe first indication of the storm
and, in weatbarology, is called tbe
first feature of tbe storm. It will be
a severe storm and cause much bad

The cbange in precipitation will

It is safe for you to expect not mucb
change in crop weather for the next
six weeks. But March will be an
unusually stormy month; mucb like

Returned Men Buy
Irrigated Lands in
Osoyoos District
British Columbia returned soldiers
at Pentictson on Friday bought
twenty-three parcels, each of from
ten to "twenty acres, of irrieated
land in the government's South
Okanagan irrigrtion project.
The soldiers paid a total of $71,"
668 for their purchases. Eleven parcels sold at the upset price against
tbem, wbile twelve averaged- $298
more tban the upset price.
Friday's was tbe first sale of land
in tbe Osoyoos district, where the
government has carried out an extensive iirigation scheme.
At tbe sale to civilians on Saturday, four parcels of land were disposed of, and twenty-three town
lots in Oliver were sold, tbe highest
price paid being $650.
Plot for a Problem
Play May Be Hidden
in This Man's Life
There seems to be considerable
mystery concerning tbe present
whereabouts or fate of Corp. Nye,
who enlisted in this oity and served
for a couple of years overseas in tbe
engineering corps of the C.E.F.
Last Monday's Spokesman-Review
contained a long story about tbe
sudden disappearance of Nye (or
Bushnell, wbicb seems to his cerrect
name) from Spokane, wbere he has
been living since the close of the
war. Tbe article stated tbat circumstances indicated that tbe man
had met witb foul play.' A few days
ago the local chief of police received
a circular from the Spokane police
authorities stating that Nye, or
Bushnell, was badly wanted in Spokane for passing bogus checks.

First Platinum and

The first plant, established in Brit
ish Colombia for tbe extraction of
platinum and gold from black sand
will be erected about two miles from
Quesnel, on the Fraser river,according to plans which have been made
by S. J. Marsh, pionerr miner and
prospettor of the Cariboo country.
The plant, wbich is to be erected
as soon as construction can be got
underway, will have a capacity of
100 tons per day. Mr. Mrrsb, who
came into tbe Cariboo in 1894, bas

of tbe government service.
With such a task before the government it was declared impossible
to keep the roads in the best condition witb the appropriations available. However, attention was concentrated upon substantially improving portions of the main travelled routes and keeping the other
portions in a reasonably good state
of repair.
Royal Fractions
There is a general opinion tbat
tbe Queen of England is a person of
considerable strength and determination of character. That opinion
is reflected in a number of more or
less amusing stories. One of them
relates that the Prince of Wales,
while visiting the British forces at
tbe front, saw in a dugout the pictures of his royal father and mother.

Molly Gibson Mine
Holds Annual Meeting
Victoria, March 5.—Premier Oliver placed a notioe ou the order
paper Friday to tbe effect tbat on
Monday he would move a resolution
asking tbat the federal authorities
be requested, at their present sitting,
to enact legislation providing for the
prohibition of the importation of intoxicating liquor into British Columbia for use therein except by the
provincial government; such legislation being for the purpose of supplementing and giving effect to the provincial act for government control
and sale, to be contingent upon and
to exist-only during its .ontinuance.
In his resolution, Prem er Oliver
states that there can be effective con
trol of tbe liquor traffic in this province only through the assistance of
the federal authorities.
The step is being taken in view of
the belief tbat the province has not
power to prevent tbe importation of
liquor or to impose a special tax of
$2.50 a bottle on all such importations, as proposed in the original
draft of the moderation bill.
At the extraordinary meeting of
the Molly Gibson Burut Basin Mining company, beld bere this week,
wbicb meeting was representative of
the shareholders, it was unanimously decided to subscribe to the extent
that funds could be raised with

period of tbe war was but temporary, add with tbe advent of spring

Japanese English
Of tbe eagerness of the Japanese
to learn English Mrs. De Burgh Daly
in an Irishwoman in China give's an
amusing account. She declares tbat
they will pounce on you at railway
stations and on steamers and insist
on talking with you in order to practice the new tongue.
Sometimes, she says,the questions
they ask are odd enough. A Japanese clerk accosted a tall, dark missionary in these words: "Sir, or
madam, as the case may be, what is
your name?'' And I bave been told
that a placard was exhibited on a
little Japanese house, setting forth
that "English is taught here up to
G." The bouse coolie at the hotel
said tome, with a polite bow,"Will
you bave some hot!" I discovered
that he meant to ask whether I

been converted into smooth, hard

about ten miles of streets, using tbe
ashes from residences and .factories.
Between thirty and thirty-five loads
of ashes (two yards per load) are required for the improvement of one
block of sandy street, at a cost of a
little over $14 per block for haulage
only, or about $186 per mile, as

Route of Transprovincials
Highway Not Yet Decided
Victoria, March 5.— E. C. Henniger, of Grand Forks,told tbe house
on Friday afternoon that most of
the returned soldiers to whom be
bas talked are against beer, as they
believe tbat a soldiers club should be
a place wbere tbey can go without
feeling that they bad to bave money
in tbeir pockets to spend on beer
"I am a little of a prohibitionist
at least," said Mr. Henniger. "In
one way I am against the whole bill
from start to finish, because just as
sure as you make it easy to obtain
liquors of all kinds, you will cause
to grow up in your country a class
of people who will be beer and booze
drinkers, and you will not have as
good a class of citizens as you otherwise would buve.
"The more booze that is sold in
the province will not only fill your
jails, but cause you to build more
homes for wayward girls and hospitals and institutions for old men, the
broken products of booze."
Mr. Henoigar quoted Lloyd
George, wbo said that if the United
States remained dry for ten years,
England would also have to go dry
in order to compete in tbe world's
markets, as tbe country rbat is dry
is 10 per cent more efficient than
the country wbose people use booze.
Referring to tbe speech of Canon
Hincbliffe, Mr. Henniger declared
that the canon gave no indication of
his Btand on tbe beer clause, although earlier in tbe session he had
admitted tbat he was in favor of
more beer for the workingmen.
"1 can't understand a man of his
high calling taking this attitude
when he says he is in favor of more
beer for workingmen," Mr.Henniger
went on. "Had he been in favor of
more milk for poor families, I would
think it would be more like him,
"I am against beer in any club or
botel and for its sale only in government stores, as I believe that is
what the liquor vote called for in
October. I believe that in a few
years the people of tb? province
will be disgusted witb this government in any way dealing in liquor
and will go back to prohibition and
will have it bone dry."
Mr. Henniger said tbat in spite of
all the telegrams from soldiers about
beer, not a word has been produced
from the sisters and mothers of tbe
men, and tbey are against beer.
Victoria, March 5.—"Tbere is absolutely no foundation in the story
appearing in a Vancouver paprr
Thursday with regard to the "settlement of the route for the transpro-
vincial highway," stated Hon. Dr.
King here yesterday.
The question of abandoning botb
the Hope-Princeton ronte and tbe
Canyon route has not been decided,
said tbe doctor, wbo said that the
conflicting stories appearing from
time to time only injured tbe work
of the department in tbat it natur
ally caused misunderstanding. "We
are still giving tbis matter the fullest and most exhaustive investigation," said Hon. Dr. King, "but
the engineer's reports have not all
been received, and no decision has
been arrived at."

FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 1921
The discussion on tho moderation bill in the
house at Victoria seems to indicate that some
of the members have lost sight of the chief
intent of government control.   Their greatest
concern appears to be to make it as easy as
possible for the public to obtain liquor, and to
obtain it in any desired quantity, at the lowest
possible price and with a minimum inconvenience. This would mean a reversion to a con -
dition that existed in this province when  the
public bar was licensed.    That is not the end
the electors had in view when they voted  on
temperance plebiscite last October.   It was
because it was too easy to obtain liquor under
Prohibition act that that act was repudiated
by the people, and not because they wanted
more liquor and   more   drunkenness.    The
Moderation league promised the people a law
that would    promote   temperance    without
abridging the citizens' personal liberty. That
is what the people want now, although there
are many millions of good citizens in the world
today who do not believe that cutting off a person's liquor supply interferes with his personal
liberty.  A bill that will effectively control the
traffic will satisfy a majority of the people
of the province.   Any other measure will only
cause further strife and agitation until another
plebiscite is submitted.
Brazil, which is almost wholly in the tropics,

President Wilson's exit from the world   of
politics is marked by eulogies of varying sen
timent in Paris newspapers. The Temps says:
"Wilson has succumbed in a noble effort, as
all those who work against human nature succumb. He had the pain of knowing thatit was
his own countrymen who least understood his
thought and who most vigorously opposed his
proud attempts.   His solitary exit from the
White House is a poignant gesture of supreme
resignation. It is none the less true that Wilson was the man who brought about the joining of young America with the allies, who
dared to draw the sword for right and liberty.
Therefore he will for ever appear in history as
a great American."
Commeuting on the retirement* of President
Wilson, the Pall Mall Gazette says:
"The erstwhile greatest figure in the world
passes from public life almost forgotten. There
is uo sadder fate for a public man who was
raised so high, than to fall so low in the es
teem of his countrymen. Wilson will carry
into his retirement, however, the consciousness
that he did his best. His utmost. If in the end
he lost, he lost with honor. In spite of his
failure, there is much in his policy that coming
years will vindicate, and his name will come
again into remembrance and honor when the
league of nations has justified itself."

flMcttitfes From The West Coast of Vancouver Island
Totem Poles, Nootka Sound.
I Two days out from Victoria, going north on tha West Coast of Vancouver Island! One travels most of
the way in the open sea with the
nearest land to the left, the Islands
of Japan and the Siberian coast. But
now and then, according to the
freight destination, the ship runs up
some of the loveliest waterways in
the world. These are the inland
passages which the Pacific has made
for itself ln thousands of years in a
vain effort to bisect Vancouver Island. At the last, in spite of the
many miles of inroads lt has made,
the sea always falls back discomfited, for a great chain of mountains
runs down the centre of this island,
and taunts the might of the ocean
—"Thus far shalt thou come and no
farther." •*»
One of the most beautifr! nt' those
groping arms of the sea ..mars in
at Nootka Sound, and curves around
a score of islands, and innumerable
Islets, finding its winding way out
through Tashish Narrows, accompanied for all its journey by clouds
of gulls, cormorants, and Siwash
ducks, which circle about, and di])
and uway in colorful, rhythmic companies, reflected, as is everything in
earth and sky, ln the placid water
mirror   through   which   the   ship
cleaves noiselessly.
Nootka is the oldest settled district on the West Coast of Vancouver Island, and it remains almost
as it was in the beginning. In spite
of the fact that there is a large
modern cannery at the wharf, with
every labor saving device installed,
the Indians who work there live in
the same kind of rude little huts that
they had hundreds of years ago.
Narrow winding trails lead one
through dense woods, where the path
Is often broken by a noisy waterfall,

log or rough boulders. Only an
hour's journey from the cannery is
Friendly Cove, famous as the scene
of many a murder long ago, including that of whole Bhips' crews; and
the enslaving of white men by the
Indian king. Here are to be seen the
remains of ancient Spanish barricades, and mounds of whitened
skulls, the latter gruesome reminders of wholesale massacres.
Along the West Coast are dotted
missions and mission schools, but
Nootka scorns such innovations, as
sho does all things that go with
civilization. This mny bc deplorable,
but it makes for intcrnst antl what is

one in their own unintelligible jargon, their beady eyes brightly contemptuous, their smile infinitely patronizing. Their daughters work in
the cannery. They wear the headdress of gaudy hu»), but are clad
from head to foot in yellow mackintosh. Some of them arc comely,
most of them are uncouth, but they
make a vividly colorful picture, as
they crowd to meet the boats.
The old women bring baskets and
mats—the former really beautiful
works of art, made of rushes or the
inner bark, of the cedar, woven in

them for a mere song, compared

cities' shops.

grotesque head pieces of ravens or
ducks. Thoy are burned on the outside and highly polished, and nre
