Visitor Predion a Great Future for the Oity of
Qrand Forks   ,
Frank fl. Horn, wbo visited
Grand Forks last week, gives tbe
following impressions of the dty in
(he Vancouver Saturday Sunset:
Orand Forks is pretty generally
knows, and is sitlnted about one
bundled oiUee aimoat due west of
Nelson. It ia already tbe borne of a
number of growing industries, to aay
nothing about thiB bugs Granby
smelter, and surrounded by rich
mineral and agricultural landa. The
oity is located at the junotion ef tbe
junction of tbe north fork and the
main Kettle river, 120 miles north
of .Spokane, 8o mucb Jor its geographical position. Tbe oity waa
founded- by John A. Manly, wbo,
owned a ranch where scores of pretty
hemes, miles of fine streets and
sidewalks, and several creditable
buildings now stand. It is a flourishing little eity at tbe foot of the
Gold range in the Selkirks, and baa
already a population ot 2600 people.
It ia practically surrounded by enormous and almost inexhaustible natural resources, and several large enterprises already in operation make
it s busy town. It is a gate between
Canada and the United Slates, and
when the last spikes are driven in
tbe different railways wbioh are being constructed it will be one of tbe
important pointa on transcontinental
routes. Grsnd B'orks ranks ranks
aa ths second eity in British Columbia in point of exports. The
value of these exports for .the nine
month ending December 31, 1012,
was $2,153,141, and the import du
ties collected during the year 1912,
by Collectoj R. R Gilpin totalled
Grand Forks is built to stay built,
and it will be a large town. The
provincial government haa juat completed its new court bouae. It ia a
handsome edifice of brick and marble, and it cost 160,000. Tbey bave
a aplendid central school there that
cost $35,000. The largest iron and
brass foundry in tbe interior of tbs
province is located at Grand   Porks.
From Grand Forks there radiate
seven separate lilies of Ihree rsil
ways, which give it the lieat obtainable facilities for transportation.
Trains go east, weat, north aod
south to Seattle, 8|Kiknne, Tacoma,
Portland and other points,and Orand
Korks bus a splendid outlook
through all of tbese uitiea lo the big
Panama canst.
The oity is a divisional point and
joint terminal for the CPR, and
the Kettle Valley railway, as well as
a divisional point on the V,, V. & E.
or Qreat Northern railway. The city
is a splendid railway oentre. Thirty-
live hundred men are working on
the construction of ihe Kettle Valley
line, - which will provide a direct
route to the coast, It will be the
main'divisional point on (he C.P.R.
short, line between Winnipeg and
Vancouver, and Qrand Forka will
thereby be located nn the main line
for transcontinental traffic between
the two oities. This route will reduce the run twenty hours between
Vancouver and Winnipeg.
Grsnd Forks is also big -in other
ways. Tbere are ssw mills, sash and
door factories, a wonkerful amount
of building material and aplendid
electric light and power systems,
owned by tbe city. Ils educational
facilities are Ibe beat possible snd

province. It has two newspapers,
and, ita mining Snd smelting business is enormous.
Tbe Qrsnby smelter, capitalized
at $18,000,000, Ihe biggest copper
smelter in the British empire, is located at Qrand Forka. It bas a
monthly payroll of $35,000, and it
spends on its operations $3,000,000
eaoh year. The total psyroll of

Former Sultan    Fslt   Thst   Turkey
Would Beei me Prey of the
Berlin, Germany.—A further Instalment ot   ex-Sultan    Abdul   Hamld's
'Thoughts and I -morleB1   from   his
diary appears in the current number
of 'Nord und Sud.
The red sultan thought that Turkey
had become weak on account ot having grown to too great an extent. So
he does not compl. i .iat the empire
lost those Balk;.. lands, wblc'.i were
so difficult to rule, for he believes—or
believed when the diary was written
—that Turkey's safety lay ln drawing
back and concentrating her energies
and the sooner we Co that the sooner
will our weakness and illness be overcome. Then Europe will see that
the despise! sick man will become a
strong man.
On the vexed question of training
Turkish officers ln Europe, the sultan
My trlei-d, Uie Germa kaiser,
praises the progress of our officers who
study ln Germanv. But I am afraid
the kaiser is wrong, for the special
report of my Berlin ambassador shows
that the study of those young gentlemen Is a very Insufficient affair.
Only a few devot. themselves industriously to their work. K costs a
great deal for our young sons of Pashas to study Prussian military science,
but it Is a gocd thing for the foreigner to tee.
The old virtues ot the Osmanll, simplicity and sobriety, are often lost by.
our young men in Germany. They
acquire habits ot Immorality and
drinking, and return ..:> bla.e dandles,
look down upon tbelr comrades, on
our old and tried generals, and mock
at our customs.
Abdul ls not the first to make such
observations. He also believed In a
thoroughly Mohammedan Turkey, ln
bringing back to the empire, ln order
to strengthen it, all the Ottomans who
had wandered Into neighboring states.
As to Turkey's troubles, the deposed
sultan say-:
Allah send vs peace and quiet. No
land requires them more. V.'3 know
that our rule leaves much to be desired, but the worst thing Is the Intriguing of the powers, wbo are bringing
about our ruin. Year In, year out,
they disturb us.
In view of the machinations of thel
powers how can we lead our people
forward? It we could only have ten
years ot peace, then we might hope to
be equal to the much-admired Japanese.
Throughout the diary Abdul fulminates against extravagance and luxury.
To set my viziers a good example, he
says*. I have cut down my civil list. I
know that the European press often
rages against the slie of lt, but one
must know that I have almost a whole
town to maintain,
I am also the Kallf, tbe Father of
all Islam and my purse belongs, there-
tore, to the Moslems of all the world.
Allah knows bow little I require for
We must have a censor! Abdul exclaims. In the west, he thinks, with
Its higb degree of general education, a
censorship may not be necessary, but
the ex-sultan says that It is necessary
to treat his subjects as children, tor
they are, Indeed only big children, and
but slightly educated. It ts a great
pity, he adds, that so many shallow
French novela find their way Into the
English machinations make Abdul
very angry. There now rests for us,
he says, only one way to salvation.
That Is to annihilate English Intrigues. It Is necessary for me to
place myself at the head of the so-
called reform movement. I must
give way before English machinations, and I shall announce the constitution. That ls the last move ln
the game. Perhaps those who revel
In schemes ot reform will find out later that the new way leads to the
abyss; In the end the; will perceive,
I trust, that Vurkey can only live lf
the Ottoman loyally adherea to the
solid foundations of our sacred code.
Otherwise, we shall fall before the
Christian powers who wish to destroy

"What shell I eat?" is the dally Inquiry the physician la met with. I
do not hesitate to say that ln my Judgment a large percentage of dlse-se
ts caused by poorly selected and lm,
properly prepared food. My personal
experience with the fully-cooked food
known aa Grape-Nuts, enables me to
speak freely of Its merits.
"From overwork, 1 suffered sevoral
years with malnutrition, palpitation of
the heart, and loss of sleep. Last
summer I was led to experiment personally with tbe new food, which I
used ln conjunction with good rich
cow's milk. In a short time after I
commenced ita use, the disagreeable
symptoms disappeared, my heart's act-
Ion became steady and normal, the
functions ot the si-imaoh were properly carried out and I again alept as
soundly and aa well as ln my youth.
"I look jpon'Grape-Nuts as a perfect food, and no one can gainsay but
that It has a most prominent place In
a rational, scientific system of feeding.
Anyone who uses this food will soon
be convinced of the soundness of the
principle upon which It Is manufactured and may thereby know the facts
aa to Its true worth." Name given

When the undigested food lies In the

Rights of Aliens
The legal rights of an alien de
pend entirely upon the grace of the
lawmaking power. An alien has no
more natural and inherent right in
a foreign land than a stranger has
in another man's bouse. The owner
of the house may look tbe door in
his face, admit him ss a servant,
invite him in as a guest, or take
him into the family.
A foreigner^hj-edipitted to citizen-
fbip, not by 'tight of any intellectual,
moral, nr physical qualifications,but
because tbe United States, and the
states, have made laws that admit
him to suffrage under various con
ditions. Tbe state laws are supreme
within theif jurisdiction, snd the ns-
tionsl laws are supreme within their
Treaties  are   national laws, and
when properly ratified, are the supreme law of the land, even to tbe I
extent overriding any state law and
any state constitution that happens
to conflict with them. Congress it-1
self recognizes the supremacy of
treaties, for when, in 1897, it passed
a law providing that "no alien or
person wbo is not a citizen of the
United States, or who has not declared bis intention to become a
citizen," sball own or acquire land
in any of tbe territories, it, also provided that the prohibition should
not affect the rights of aliens under
treaties then existing.
The treaty rights of aliens can not
be nullified bv state law. Tbe constitution itself settles that point, and
the supreme court has declared a
state law invallid because it inter
tered with alien fishing rights tbat
were protected by treaty. But outside the treaty-protected rights the
states are supreme, snd may make
such laws as they please regarding
admission to suffrage, tbe ownership
of land, and other matters.
In brief, no one can come under
tbe protection of tbe American laws
and enjoy the privileges of American life' except such persons as tbe
American people choose to admit.
But when rights have been guaranteed to aliens, thoBe rights are ss sacred as the rights guaranteed to
citizens.—Youth's Companion.

There are place* la the world where
women dress ln men'* clothing aad

Then there are the*Alpine dairy

go about tbeir work and look pretty.
It we are Inclined to take evidence
from the numbers ot men who yearly
persuade them to cast off thdr masculine dreu and put on more clinging
costume*.   But tben their eyes are so
bright and their cheeks so red tbat
tbey couldn't really look homely ln

I wore trousers.  But their reasons were
! purely military.   Besides, they were
] halt masculine in manner and appear-
1 ance and dressed to accentuate their
j qualities.   They bad to make them-
j selves Into fierce looking creatures to
terrify the men on the opposing side,
i and from all accounts they succeeded
j admirably.
I Aa for tbe stronger sex, tbere still

women's garb and enjoy it In certain
parte of Greece, Spain and Albania
there are bands of desperate brigand*
who, when they are decked out tor attacks on strangers or neighbors, look
for all the world like grand opera ballet girls ln their short brightly colored skirts, which are made very full

They aeem tremendously proud ot

According to a Government return,
recently issued, tha official history d
the South African War cost £34,706.
This sounds a big sum, but it is
quite small by comparison with that
expended by the Germans on their;
official history oi the Franco-Prussian
War. This colossal work cost £240,000,;
and is illustrated by nearly one mil-!
lion maps and plane.
The official- history of the Russo-
Japanese War hu only cost, so far,.
about £6,000; but then it is not nearly completed. The Americans, who
usually do these things in style, spent
$1,500,000 in illustrating and printing
their official history, ot tbe great Civil
War of 1861-66.
