The following letter was sent by
G. S. Walters, Secretary of the
Board of Trade and ia self explanatory:
J. A. McKelvie, Esq., M. P.,
Vernon, B.C.
Dear Sir:
On Friday evening last a well
attended and representative meeting of Greenwood Board of Trade,
took up the question of the probability  of  the   Customs  Office  at
Greenwood being closed.   A long
discussion took place and the views
of most of the prominent citizens
were expounded, and without exception there was unanimous opinion that such a course as proposed
by the Minister bf Customs would
be very unjust and inflict undue
hardships on Greenwood and the
immediate District.
I was instructed to forward you a
short resume of conditions in the
past, and as they are at present.
Some three years ago there were
seven out-ports under Greenwood,
and this was sufficient to keep the
two officials here more than bnsy.
Within 24 hours on September 30,
1919, four of these out-ports were
instructed to : close business with
Greenwood, and report to Penticton.   This meant that two-thirds
of the Greenwood office business
was taken away, and no better service to the public was given.    Previous to this, in order to Berve the
District and to better deal with the
volume of business passing through
Greenwood   office  the  Dominion
authorities decided to obtain and
equip suitable quarters in a Dominion public building at Greenwood,
which eame  building  can better
take care of records, etc., than any
other building in the District, and
at the same time is run without
any expense to the Customs Department in physical upkeep.- -
Greenwood at the present time,
along with other mining towns in
the Dominion is suffering a trade
depression owing to the low metal
market, and although the smelter
is now closed there is considerable
development being done on various
properties, some of which will be
on a shipping basis whenever the
prices of metals warrant operations,
and with the prospect of considerable machinery being bronght into
the place it would greatly prejudice
investors to know that so much inconvenience would be caused by
entries having  to be  cleared  at
places other than Greenwood.
Since tbe amalgamation of Cus
tome  and _tbe   Inland_Revenne,
which took place on April 1, 1921,
the collections at the port of Greenwood have greatly improved. Much
of the arrears of the Excise Tax
have been collected which otherwise
could not have been done successfully from an outside office, and
which eame future collections will
undoubtedly be loBt io tbe Department If the Greenwood  office is
non-existent.   We would ask you
to request tbe Customs Department
to furnish you  with the past records of the Greenwood office as relating to the volume of business
transacted there, and we respectfully urge that you insist on the
Department bearing in ��� mind that
the present state of affairs is only
temporary, and the improvement'
already shown   will   undoubtedly
continue.    Tbe citizens feel that
the Minister has not duly considered the status of the place,  and is
casually taking the recommendation of an Inspector who is relying
solely on present day figures for
his adverse reports.   There is absolutely no doubt that the closing
of the Customs Office here will be
made a public question,  and the
Department will find that the press,
both locally and provinci&ily will
make capital of the matter.  It is a
general opinion of the citizens that
the Minister of Customs has sot
full knowledge of the conditions
here and is allowing lesser officials
to take too much for granted, and
it is for this reason that we again
urge  that  the   matter  be more
thoroughly investigated.
Also c-ne official ��*tbis office is
being retired oa the 31st of August
which will lessen Ihe expense at,

City Council
The regular meeting of the City
Council was held on August 1st.

of the City it was decided not to

Convention of the Um'on of B. C.
Municipalities    to    be  held   this
month at Port A lberhi.   The clerk
was instructed to supply . information closely affecting certain municipal problems to the convention
and which same will be presented
to tbe Legislature at the autumn
The Water committee reported
that more work waB necessary at
the Providence creek  reservoir in
order to keep up a normal water
supply.     After   considerable discussion the Water committee was
authorized to have the work done
and to helplbo meet this cost, the
Clerk was    instructed   to   notify
those- consumers   who   have  not.
paid the sprinkling rate to do so at
once or have their supply reduced
and for any illegaL use- of the water
after that the service to be discontinued entirely.
The Lighting committee received
sanction from tbe Council to instal
lights at the Auto park and this
will be done immediately.
The Stn efts committee reported,
satisfactory progress being made oa
sidewalk repairs and recommended
further purchase of several thousand feet of lumber which can be
obtained from a local taxpayer oh
very reasonable terms. - -
The work of dismantling doors
and windows at the old hospital	
haB been allowed to proceed on the
assurance that current taxes and
arrears - will be paid . before tbe
windows and doors  are shipped.

Trie Menace of Bolshevism
Pnrisig- recent months, reference in the press of Canada to the activities
of the radical socialistic Bolshevik and Communist movements have not
been as frequent as was the case a year or so ago, but this docs not mean
that the menace to our free British institutions has passed. Notwithstanding the anxieties and arduous duties at present imposed on the statesmen of
Great Britain because of the troubles in Ireland,'the complex problem of
world disarmament, and the gigantic financial difficulties to bc overcome
following thc war, leaders in government in thc Old Country arc not overlooking thc danger that still threatens from thc Bolshcvik'propaganda.
A committee of the House of Lords, under the. chairmanship of the
Duke of Northumberland, spent several months of investigation and research into the activities of these revolutionary organizations and iu a
report recently issued it is stated that there is overwhelming evidence that
an International conspiracy exists which* aims at thc destruction of all existing institutions of government and society, of all religion, of all moral'laws,
and all properly rights, throughout Great Britain, Canada and other Overseas Dominions. V
This report sets forth that the main points in the Revolutionary programme nrc:-��-
(1) The national power of Great Britain and other Allied States is to
be broken down by the fomenting of internal revolutions, through appeals to
class hatred, and by efforts to obtain greater freedom and privileges for one
class of people. Governments which arc strong arc to be weakened by the
introduction of Socialism, which will pave thc way lo anarchy.
(2) Internationalism is to be taught.
(3) In every possible way influence is to bc secured over public officials.
(4) As religion is the oral mainstay of all government, it is to be
(5) Properly owning is to bc rendered impossible���by means of a thousand laws, restrictions and taxes, thus bringing about some form of State
Socialism, or Communism, or Anarchy.:'
Thc Communist Party, directed and subsidized from Moscow, exerts its
power through magazines and printed matter, inoculating ideas of Red
Revolution into the'minds of thc people, and by a process known as "boring
from within." Communist. schools have been established for pcrvcrliijg
thc young by thc teaching of Communism and Atheism. In this connection it is important to note that there arc over twenty weekly newspapers
in- Canada teaching and preaching Socialism and Communism, many of
them of the most radical kind  ,
Despite all his many other duties and responsibilities,- David Lloyd
George, who is a radical of thc sane and progressive type, felt impelled
recently to sound a word of warning as to the danger lhat confronts British
institutions from this subtle enemy, Thc British Prime Minister is reported as saying: - �� .''-..������
"Thc military danger.is over, but there arc greater, more insidious,
more permanent dangers still remaining���the dangers that have arisen
from thc new conditions "in- this and every land,, the new ideas that have
arisen, thc new organizations that -have suddenly risen into .great powers.
What is the peril? / It-is the phenomenal rise-to power pf a new party, with
new purposes of the" most'subversive character. - It. calls itself/Labor, but
it is really Socialist.. . ���"." ' '    . '    '-
"Jf anyone doubts the reality of" the.danger, I ,woukl ask him to read
the Socialist and Labor papers, -Wc rarely sec them, and-wc do not quite
sec what they arc after, but what they write, in'these papers is.repeated on
hundreds andlhousands. of platforms, to hundreds and thousands and millions of .people. ��� And they are beginning to'belicvc it. '. Socialism is lighting, and you will find it in these papers���to destroy everything lhat great
prophets aud leaders labored- for"-generations'-.lo buildup. -Private enterprise, individual effort',, the stimulus of reasonable gain,".the'present organization of commerce, of industry, of credits���-all that goes'.if'this new system
'which .is being preached, succeeds. - Even the-political liberty whicn "thcy
���build up is being threatened.". ��� .'-'"       "",.���  '.���      -       :.-  "���
The old 'and'tried Labor'organizations of Canada and the United States
are aware of the danger, which' threatens aiid arc'out combatting "it. The
business 'communities' are becoming more' and more aware -of it.' It is
time the average man who loves flic little-home, he lias'built" up by-patient
effort and self-denial, ,thc=nian with his quarter, or. half-section'of land, the

Knew His Name
The Poet Whittier's Dog Was An Intelligent Animal.
During one of the last birthday celebrations of the poet Whittier, he was
visited by a celebrated oratorio singer. Thc lady was asked to sing,'and,
seating herself; at thc piano, she began the beautiful ballad, "Robin
Adair." She had hardly begun when
Mr Whittier's pet dog came into the
room and, seating himself by her side,
watched her as if fascinated, and listened with a delight unusual for an
animal. When she finished he came
and put his-paw very gravely into her
hand and licked her cheek. "Robin
takes that as a tribute to himself,"
said Mr. Whittier. "He also is a
'Robin Adair.'" The dog, hearing
his' own name, evidently considered
that hc was the hero of the song.
From that moment," during the lady's
visit, hc was her devoted attendant.
Hc kept by her side when shc was
indoors, and accompanied her when
shc went lo walk. When shc went
away, hc carried her satchel in his
mouth to the gate, and watched her
dparlure with every evidence of distress.���St. Nicholas.

(v. 1).
Young as Antiocli.-tb.e new religious
centre, was, she had prophets " and
teachers. Such are essential to church
life. Indeed, they are never absent
from the true church;. In Ephesians
4:8-12 Paul says that when Christ ascended He gave gifts unto men for the
purpose of perfecting the saints unto
the work of the ministry.

Word 'of God, Elymas maliciously
sought to turn his mind from the.faith.
This is the first obstacle they encountered. This opposer is the same one
who came to Adam in Eden and to
Jesus in the wilderness. He Is the
enemy of God and man. He now seeks
to bar the gospel as it enters, upon its
career of the conversion of the heathen. Saul denounced him in the
most scathing terms, calling him the
child of the devil, full of guile,and villainy, and pronounced him the enemy
of all righteousness, accusing him of
perverting the right ways of the Lord.
Happily, the deputy heeded Saul's
teaching and believed the gospel. It
was in this connection that Saul's
name was changed to Paul.

Relief For Stockmen
Says Freight Drop Will Help Farmers
Selling Livestock.
Hon. Manning Dohcrty, minister of
agriculture for Ontario, believes that
the proposed 25 per cent, freight rate
reduction in livestock will constitute
considerable^ relief from conditions
which wcrc rapidly kiUing the livestock industry.
Despite thc fact- lhat livestock
prices have- gone down more quickly
and farther than almost jmy other
commodity, stated the minister, the
reduction was not secured without
very considerable effort. -In his
opinion the ' prevailing livestock
prices represent scarcely more than
50 per cent, in any case, and not
more than 25 per cent, in somc cases,
of the peak prices in different lines.
He is hopeful that this measure of
relief will prove a steadying influence
on thc industry, and that further .reductions will follow.

Among thc exhibitors of grain at
thc Edmonton fair, was Mr." Price
Shcppard^ whose entry of wheat
weighed 66 pounds to the bushel. J.
Strassburgcr, of Stony Plain, was also
a prominent exhibitor in grains and
vegetables. Of special interest was
the exhibit of Alta Swedish red clover
above which was an inscription stating . that this clover which was first
sown in 1915 had stood thc test of
six years without a .single failure.
This information should be of great
value to the farmers as it is generally
believed that red clover will not winter in Alberta, consequently, farmers
do not "sow this clover which is valuable not only for feed-and seed, but
as fertilizer. Wm.* Chalmers, of Edmonton south, was thc exhibitor, and
he is enthusiastic in his praise of its
qualities, and adaptability to thc country.

The examples given us in legend,
and in fiction, supply us with snlcn-
did ideals " of womanhood as she
used to bc. It is necessary in these,
matter of fact day's to get down to
thc realities,, and when we do, we
discover that the woman who lives
for sport is " scarcely an attractive
figure. There are too / many examples of thc sportswoman in European
countries, and* the consequent' hero
worship among the rising generation
who view such prowess with something akin to awe. Games are excellent in -their own way, if carried
_o_ut in.moderatioi^-and it -is- a���fine
sign of the times'that thc modern
girls' schools anxt colleges do not
encourage extravagant - devotion to
sports. On the contrary, there exists
a very sincere endeavor to promote
a sound, general development of mind
and body. And iu the piain these
wholesome principles arc * supported
by homc and social opinions. There
seems little- fear .for thc corruption
of Canadian womanhood by athleticism. Excessive specialization will no
doubt bc found in exceptional .cases;
but the abuse of a good thing is not
an argument against its use and it is
quite clear that quiet, moderate exercise on the playing fields tends to the
happiness and good of the race. Woman athletes on a grandiose scale arc
undesirable.���Thc  Montreal   Gazette.
Most troubles Afflicting Women Are
Due to Poor Blood.
To every woman belongs the right
to enjoy a healthy, active life; yet
nine out of ten suffer from some form
of bloodlessncssX That is why one
sees on every side pale, thin cheeks,
dull "eyes and drooping figures���sure
signs of headaches, weak backs, aching limbs and uncertain health. .All
weak women should win the right to
be well by refreshing thcir weary bodies with the new, rich, red blood that
promptly transforms them into
healthy attractive women. This new,
red blood is suppied by Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, which reaches every organ
and every nerve in. thc body. Through
thc use of these pills thousands of
women have found benefit when suffering from anaemia, indigestion,
general weakness and those
ailments from which , women alone
suffer. Among the many women who
tell of thc good Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills havc~donc them is Mrs. L.-Hicks,
Round Hill, N.S., who says: "I became very much run down in health;
my blood seemed weak and watery,
my strength failed, and I was so easily tired that my work was a burden.
I had often read about Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills and decided to~try them,
and I can truly say that after using
three boxes I found myself gaining,
and under a further use of the pills
all my old-time energy, and vitality
was .restored. Out of my own experience I can strongly recommend
this medicine."
You can get Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills through any dealer in medicine
or by mail at 50 cents a- box or six
boxes for $2.50 from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.
Protessor Finds Many
Egyptian Treasures
Work Among Nile Tombs Has
Yielded Valuable Collection.
The perfectly preserved body of a
girl 8,000 years old, along with other
interesting relics of the ancient civilization of Egypt, has arrived in London.
These treasures of a past age have
been discovered by Professor Flinders Petrie, of the British School of
Archaelogy, who has been working
in the desert south of Califo among
thc Nile tombs. His researches have
yielded a valuable collection -which is
now being unpacked for exhibition
at University College, London.
The work is necessarily a slow process. Sets of painted wooden figures
separated for purposes of transport
havc to bc Tc-assembled, shattered
pottery has to bc pieced together, and
prehistoric bodies, liablc--to crumble
to dust, havc to be extracted n with
meticulous care from their wrapipngs.
All this requires the judgment and the
deft touch of the expert.
In addition to the body of .the girl,
the latest finds' include rare vases and
bowls of alabaster and copper, a
stone cup carved to the fragility of a
lotus flower, scarubs older than any
yet discovered, pottery and beads.
The collection is rich in human interest,  and  gives a    clearer    picture
dweller thousands of years before the birth of
Christ.     /
One group of figures, carved and
painted with great vigor, shows a
granary filled with busy workers, a
kitchen where a cook turns on a
spit a trussed goose, while" another
servant���his wig removed for thc
sake of coolness���fans the flames.
A third set depicts a, sacrificial
ceremony; a fourth thc method of
setting a table; and a fifth a carrying chair borne by porters, with high
prowed boats in the background
spreading sails of brown linen and
manned by crews of black-haired
sailors. Yet another sculpture shows
thc boats destined for thc use of
souls in thc ^pirifworld.
The exhibition was open from July
4 to 30, after which thc relics were
distributed among various British and
foreign museums.

The con sign men t, which has been

Amongst the latter species arc
black handed sunfish, from America,
golden .pike from Japan; a new 1-ind

Improved Air Navigation
Automatic .Means of Control For
Commercial Airplanes.
Apparently thc day is at hand when
thc navigation of an airplane will require no more skill and "self-reliance
than does the driving of an automobile. A flight has recently been made
from London to Paris and' back, during which, for two consecutive hours,
the pilot ��� was 'enabled to depend entirely upon an automatic mechanical
control for everything but the actual
direction by means of the steering
wheel, says the August Popular Mechanics Magazine in an illustrated article.
More recently, a French inventor
has produced a mechanical pilot by
means of which all control except the
actual steering is done either automatically or by readily made adjustments. The device has attracted a
great deal of attention in England,
where elaborate tests are being made
at both government and private aerodromes. This machine is so arranged that the pilot can retain personal
control of the ailerons and elevator,
as well as of thc engine plant and
rudder, as long as he likes, and also
has the means, whenever he desires
to turn over to thc automatic system
the control of thc ailerons and elevator simultaneously, or of the ailerons
alone���buf. not the .elevator alone���
and in addition hc can cut out both
automatic controls, and use indicators
that are installed on the dashboard
of thc airplane cockpit as an index as
regards horizontality. It is more
than ia means of .relieving the pilot
from fatigue, for, when flying through
clouds or fog he need no longer fear
that he is "banking" unintentionally,
while for landing, the control can be
set so that the machine will descend
at a predetermined angle, thus removing one of thc dangers of night flying.

Radioscopic Examination of Mind As
Well As Body.
Its name, "phrenoscope," exactly
describes a new French X-ray instrument to those who have a knowledge
of the dead languages, for the term is
composed of two Greek words meaning a view or survey of the mind or
-diaphragm, and this is precisely thc
purpose of the instrument, says the
August Popular Mechanics Magazine
in an illustrated article. It makes
possible a radioscopic view of any
opaque object, and in the case of the
human body, enables one to see distinctly thc diaphragm���thc ' membrane that separates the. chest from
the abdomen, dividing thus thc body
into two compartments. This mem-
.brane, although very slender, is muscular, and it vibrates constantly under the action of respiration. It is
claimed that these movements of the
diaphragm act in unison with the
mind, or brain, and thcieforc a. study
of thc diaphragm in this manner
makes possible an analysis that is
mental as well as physical. Indeed,
the French originator of thc instrument asserts that he can read the
character of any human being, when
placed behind the screen of his instrument so that the diaphragm is
fully exposed to view. That there is
some basis for this assertion has been
denitely proved by a number of actual tests that wcrc very successful.

Big Catch-
"L. E. Phillips, J. E. Perry,
Beverley Powell and Morris Wal-
mer left here last Saturday afternoon on a fishing trip to Kettle
Biver, across the liDe in British
Columbia and some fifty miles
north of Eock Oree, returning Sunday afternoon'. They caught 120
trout, some of them large size.
They report many fishing parties
in the Kettle river valley" from all
parts of the coast. A good story
is told on Jim Perry. .7 He was
fishing at the month of a small
canyon and while stooping over
baiting his hook he heard a noise
near at hand and looking, up saw a
deer almost upon him. He let out
a yell that, could have been heard
forty, miles away. It was a question which was. the most surprised,
the deer or Perry. The animal is
said to have jumped at least.fifteen
feet, up in the air and Mr. Perry
made about the same, record at the
high jump."���Oroville Gazette.

New Schedule of Prices
rj - - ��� ��� ���
Victoria, August 4.���"This is
once where the big cities will have
to suffer for the sake of tbe smaller
communities," was the statement
of one of the commissioners of the
Liquor Control Board, in. discussing the re-adjustment of beer
prices throughout the province.
The new schedule of prices which
went into effect on August 1, shows
nq decrease in the price of beer to
people in the larger centres, but
there is a material reduction to
consumers in the outlying district?.
Owing to the distance; from the
nearest brewery, Prince ��� George]
pays the highest price for beer,
$23.50 >per barrel, or .62.35 per
dozen pint bottles. In all cities
where, a brewery is located the
price will be $20 per barrel and $2
per dozen pint bottles. A lower
price might be quoted iu the larger
centres, but the price named will
be retained in order, that the price
in the smaller centres may be kept
as low as possible.
