It is estimated that about 200
people attended the social in the
Greenwood Theatre on Wednesday night given by the Conserva-'
tive women of the district, Many
came from Grand Forks but still
more from Eholt, Boundary Falls,
Midway, Kettle Valley and Rock
Creek. .Everybody was.welcome
and all had a real good time,
whether Liberal or Conservative
���all 'forgetting for the time
being that there was an election
and all putting a^ide party prejudices. . The stage was fitted up
with small tables for cards where
a few, played, but the main attraction was dancing, a feature being
the old time square dances. Chas
Clark, of Grand .Forks, "called"
the dan_.es ia real old back east
style, bringing fond memories to
many of the old timsrs." Jack
Morrison was floor manager.' The
following programme was given
between dances:���piano solo, Mrs.
Ritchie; Duet, Miss R. Lytle and
Miss R. Axam; Recitation, Mrs.
Fenner; duet, Miss Carter and
Mrs. Gowans; solo, Miss Carter;
solo, H. Bakke. At midnight
coffee, sandwiches, cake aud icecream were served and although
there was a bigger crowd than
was expected there was ample for
all.        " *   '

The vaudeville entertainment
and dance last Friday night under
the auspices of tbe Ladies Hospital
Auxiliary ".vent over big." The
gross proceeds'wero $240.75. The
crowd waB one of the largeet ever
inu the Greenwood Theatre and
there was no excuse for any one of
them, failing to enjoy the excellent
programme from start to finish.
The general ��� verdict was that it
was about tbe best all round show
ever given in this city. It was a
varied concert and^produced ih
such good order that the customary
waiting time was absent.
The array of talent that had
been promised by the press agent
was all there and vindicated the
press when it advised to be sure
and be on time, for many had to
stand throughout the performance.
After the five reel picture "A
Circus Cowboy," the girls marched
on the stage with the Diamond
Drill and went through the intricate
movements very well indeed. Mr.
McCurrach with his chorus of six
sang "Turned Up," had to respond
to an encore. Then Miss Lillie
Pickthall sang "Vale" and for an.
encore gave "Keep on Hoping"
with remarkable sweetness and
power. Miss Pickthall has a contralto voice under absolute control
atfall times, clear.and sweet as it
swells in crescendo or fortissimo
movement. Her voice carries
clearly and distinctly and always
with the same colorful quality.
The girls dance made a great hit
and had to be repeated. It was
done with vim and perfection that
showed careful and hard training.
Mrs. J. M. Ryan rendered two
selections "The Dream of Lbng
Ago," and being loudly encored
sang "Until." Mrs. Eyan formerly lived in Greenwood and her
voice was not "discovered" until
she went to Nelson arid now after a
few lessons she captures her
audience wherever she goes. V-
..."The . Hoboes".'..'..driUVcssfcainly..
took the house by storm. Their
make-up was very funny and \feheir
drilliug and singing good. The
audience demanded that this be repeated-
The programme concluded with
the men singing fehe."How-Do-Yoa-
Do" song with local hits. ,,,.Tfais;
song took so.well; that they7re-
ceived four encores and even after
that the audience wanted more.
The success Vof the drills and
dancing are.largely due to the efforts of Mrs. M.*-8.JTaylor, Mrs. P.
H. McCurrach and .Mrs. .A. J.
Dorman, with Mrs.' T.f. Jenkin at
fehe piano, - while V Mrs.-G. S.,
.Walters was the, general;'"manager of th e 'whole!., show, _���_' Miss ..TR;.

on the piano.   _f ��� V

World's Largest Negro Colony
District In New York Is "A City
Within A City"
In one square mile of the Harlem
district of New York is housed the
largest gathering of Negroes in the
history of the world, according to the
Survey Graphic, a magazine owned
and edited by Negroes, the first number of which has just been is'suedf Its
announced purpose is to interpret Harlem as the capital of tho Negro World.
James Weldon Johnson, who has attained prominence by his work in the
promotion of Negro welfare, says:
"Harlem now stands for the Negro
Metropolis. It is not merely a Negro
there-j colony of community. It is a city
within a city, witli new apartments
and handsome dwellings, well paved
aud well lighted streets. It has its
own churches, social- aud civic centres, shops aad theatres.
"Within this belt of seventy or eighty
blocks can bo found colored people of
British, French, Dutch, Spanish, Arabian, Danish, Portuguese and native an-

United ytates in so far as one article at least is concerned, namely, coal. j
E''t'r Mince Confederation became an accomplished fact it has been tho j
aim of all Governments to develop ihe Dominion along east and west lines and
thus make it, as far as possible, a self-contained, self-supporting national unit.
Hundreds of millions of dollars have been expended in the effort in the construction of transcontinental railways, building of canals, development of harbors on the Atliinlic and Pacific coasts, and in the maintenance of a so-called
nalional fiscal policy.
Nevertheless, rich as the Dominion uucjuestioiuibly is in natural resources
of all kinds, and, in particular, with billions of tons of coal, tlie central Provinces of Canada have remained dependent on The United States and gone on
importing fuel supplies lo the extent of approximately ono hundred millions
of dollars annually, with the result tliat the importation of coal has constituted the chief item in our adverse balance of trade with the L'nited States.
The diiliculty has been, of course, tliat Canada's coal deposits; are to be
fomvd in lhe extreme eastern and tlie extreme western Provinces while the
bulk of Canada's consuming population and manufacturing industries are io
be found iu the central Provinces, and the cost of transportation of coal has
been too great to enable" it. to be laid down iu Ontario and Quebec in competition with L'niled States coal..

Canadians Who Wish to Have Graves
of Soldiers Who Fell In Great War
Cared For Can Do So Through
, St. Barnabas Hostels
"Aud yours are there and so are mine,
Rank upon rank and line on line."
At this time of the year the relatives
of fallen heroes or the war aro longing
for an opportunity to visit tho graves
in France, particularly to see that
they are appropriately cared for at
Easter. Unable to do this, it is reassuring to know that there is an
agency through whicli they can havo
wreaths put on fhe graves and which
will thoroughly and reverently perform this act of faith.
St. Barnabas Hostels, 7 Hobart
Place, London, S.W.I., is .such an institution. By arrangement with them
wreaths of various sizes and qualities can be placed oa tho grave of a
fallen soldier and can be done by
Easter, providing lhe location of the
grave can be given them ten days-bo-
forehand. Wreaths can be placed on
graves at C.iristmas, Easter and Armistice days, aud on other occasions by
special arrangement if it is so desired.
Ou each occasion the hostels provide
llie relatives with a small photograph
to show that the request has been carried, out.
People can also become annual subscribers to the hostels, in which case
they are entered in the register and
wreaths will ,1)0 placed bn specified
graves every Easter without furth'e'i
notice. A report of the condition ot
llie grave is mado and sent tp each
subscriber each year.
Coming highly recommended by the,
imperial war graves commission, St.
Barnabas is one of the institutions engaged in-this work t.hat_can be relied
upon to tho utmost. One of the reasons that long notice is required is
that this work and -the photographic
work very often entail long journeys
by ear over bad roads.
- Tlie-same institution h.is 'organized'
a-number of pilgrimages of\Old country, people to Flanders ' Fields, A
great deal/ has-been written of those
impressive ceremonies attended by
large gatherings of mourners. But
.these'pilgrimages are out of roach oE
many .Canadians, iu whicli case-\the
service, that can be performed /'or tlie'm
is the work. of. placing flowers on tho
graves .and.providing tho relatives
with the -knowledge that it Is done. -

Curative Value Of Radium
Important^ Discovery in  England   May
Be of Great Benefit
The experts of- Middlesex Hospital
in London, the centre of British radium research, have announced an important discovery enabling the curative value of any given quantity of
radium to bo multiplied thousands of
Briefly, the'discovery consists in bottling radium gas, known as radon, in
tiny glass tubes. Radium emits three
kinds of rays, known as alpha, beta
and gamma, but hitherto only the
gamma rays have boen harnessed.
The present success concerns the
beta raj^, which the experts -now are
capturing, purifying, condensing and
confining in glass tubes, a little thicker than a human hair, to which is given the nam<3 ot "seeds."
These seeds are prepared to be distributed to other hospitals for curative purposes and the suggestion is
that they may prove useful'ln treating-
cancer, although experts deprecate the
idea that they arc likely to prove
revolutionary or offer a sure cure.
The alpha rays are very "weak and
are. regarded as negligible.

Movement to Restore Capital Punish,
ment At  German  Capital
There have beeu no executions in
Berlin sines 1921, and it is now being
alleged that the number of brutal murders has increased in the German
capital because of the disposition ol
the courts to impose sentences of life
imprisonment Instead of death.
Berlin has no executioner and tha
discussions in the papers as to the
advisability of restoring capital punishment havo brought more than 100
applications from men who want to
serve as hangman.

Infallible New War  Weapon

The London Westminster Gazette
reports that secret experiments are in
progress with one of the strangest
anti-aircraft, weapons ever devised.
Experts believe It will be niort- potent
in-aerial warfare than torpedoes and
submarines in na%al usbting, the
newspaper says. It consists- of a
bomb, which, when within a certain
radius of an airplane, responds"to tho
magnetic iniiuence set up by the metal
parts ot the airplane, which influences
give the bomb immensely increased
velocity toward the plane.
No amount of manoeuriing by the
pilot, according to the description of
tho newspnper, will cnablp him to escape aud the. plane is doomed. . The
bomb Js launched from the ground,
and, if found practicable, will eliminate lhe need of anti-aircraft guns.

It is with a great deal of genuine satisfaction that the people
of this district have learned that
the provincial government has decided to have a show down with
the Doukhobours. The government has frequently been criticized on itsDoukhobour policy, which
was based largely on the principle of peaceful persuasion. Dur-
the past number of,jears and up
to the time of Peter Veregin's
death this policy, though not entirely satisfactory in its results,
did produce some measure of progress at least in the matter of
school attendance. Recently,
however, the Doukhobours have
apparently decided to discontinue
even the pretence of compliance
, with the law and some of their
number have openly defied the
courts in this connection. Under
these circumstances, unless the
government was prepared to tolerate anarchy, drastic, action was
unavoidable'.  v" )'"X  X-xyX
While the Doukhobour problem
is perhaps of.more direct interest
to the City of Grand Forks than
to any ���'other-..- section . of. the
Boundary it is in.reality a matter
of grave . concern . to 7 the ~ whole
district, and in. fact. to- the entire
province.77 Our information: is
that the. question hasf been approached 7 not 7 from .fa political
.standpointfbut.rather as a serious
business question of .almost national, importance.. This is 'a
good .omen. It- always breeds
distrust- and -suspicion when a
Ttnatter of thiis.kind'is ..made a por
;litical: football, v?hich, with -a
.bye-election pending'in this .rid-
: ingmight easily be done7. That
this has;iaot been done '��� and the
fact that all public, officials and
responsible citizens of. Grand
Forks, regardless "of party affilia-
- lion,- are united behind-the present
.movement for "-.a solution   of. the
problem  speaks  well   for  their
sincerity and. good judgment!.
"}.  From, the most reliable iiif or
7mation we learn that there is no
doubt whatever that the . govern-
fment   intends   "goingVthrbugh"
with,  .the    fight    against . the
Doukhobours      this    time,     if
fight,it must.be.   Sufficient tinie
- has been taken for thorough preparation of the case; adequate organization has been developed, to
���'. cope with any situation that may
.arize���even to.nudeparades.. By
;the time this goes to press it.is
-likely that a large, number^ bf
"Douks?' will be'facing a.Court
at Grand Forks and failure or refusal to pay any fines assessed is
likely.to.prove an expensive .experiment. :.;'. TheTwHole affair will
be watched .with in terest.
urges for the election of an
Opposition'candidate. Iu the
first place no serious criticism
can be made of the Oliver Government. On the whole it has
handled the business of the
province in an efficient and creditable manner. The most bitter
Conservatives rarely criticize the
government as such; they complain occasionally of some minor
local condition. The public need
scarcely be told that this government has enacted more wholesome and beneficial legislation
than all of its predecessors in this
province. It is now engaged in
working out a number of very
important problems, among them
the matter of freight rates, and
in these matters it deserves to
have the registered approval of
the electors.
From a selfish standpoint
again, it would be even greater
folly for this Riding to return an
Opposition member. There is
plenty Opposition now; what is
needed at present is a government
following of sufficient strength
to enable it to be at all times
independent of groups and fac
tions. The next three or four
years are likely to be a period of
great importance to this part of
the country. From au economic
standpoint we have lost a great
deal in the last few years. We
are now struggling to our feet:
we hope the future holds something good for us: but we need
encouragement and assistance.
Let us take this opportunity to
obtain them; let us iu this Bye-
Election elect the man best fitted,
both by political association and
by personal qualifications, to
secure the greatest measure of
assistance, the most sympathetic
consideration of our needs and
the most sensible and practical
solution of all our local problems.

(Saturday Night, October 11, 1924)
With the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company of Trail
paying in taxation last year $443,980, approximately 4 per cent, of its
total capitalization, that company's annual report, signed by President
J. J. Warren, declares that industrial stagnation in British Columbia
is threatened.
Only a substantial reduction in taxation will bring about the
much desired investment of new capital in British Columbia says the
report which'reads as follows:
"The sum paid and reserved for taxes amount* to no less than
?443,98��, or over 4 per cent, on your total capitalization.
"This compares with $252,881 in 1922 and $67,724 before the war
and on the same profits the amounts payable this year is six times
au large as It would have been in pre-war days.
"Everyone is clamoring for the development of our, natural resources as the remedy for our unfortunate financial plight���and undoubtedly the cure must come from tfte production of. additional
wealth���but primarily there must be some incentive to start development and, of course, there muat be a margin over the cost of production.
 "What company or group of-men  having to~make~a~ mine  in
British Columbia will take the risk of total Iota in case of failure*
Which happens at least nine times out of ten���and face the certainty
of practically confiscatory taxation Jn case of success.
"Therefore, unless and until a substantial reduction be made in
-the rate of taxation of the mining industry, it is not at all likely that
those having the necessary money nf 111 embark iu this very hazardous enterprise. *   . _,.������"
"Meanwhile, private enterprise lags aad the jiatuis&l resources
of the province remain dormant.'' , XX
Submitting myself to the good offices of the Electors of the Grand Forks-
Greenwood Constituency, I can safely say that'I need no personal introduction to most
of you, and am in touch with the needs of this district; and fairly well versed in the
conditions of the Province as a whole.
This election is not so much a party fight as a fight on behalf of the whole
Prpvince against the retention of Mr. Oliver and his Government in Victoria. If
you will look back you will appreciate why there is such a wide outcry against
Oliverism in* this Province today." Under the old Conservative Government the Province at large prospered and everybody reaped the benefit. A3 soon as the Liberal
Government came into oflice; the change was quite, marked,, and the conditions of
the Province have been going from bad to worse until today we are in desperate
straits brought about entirely by the incompetent and maladministration of the Government in Victoria; It is apparent that a drastic change in the present methods
must take place. Drastic economy must be practised, capital must be encouraged to
again come to this country, PEOPLE MUST BE ALLOWED TO EXIST; industrial
enterprises must be allowed to make a profit, and the exodus of good British subjects
from this Province to the United States; must be stopped. There is only one way
this can be accomplished���that is through the re-establishment of the confidence of
the investing public. The Conservative Party have pledged themselves to bend every
effort towards this end. :-���-..-.   ',
Here in these splendid Agricultural areas of this constituency we have been
witnessing farmers practically driven from their land and homes through oppressive
taxes following the Oliver Government taking command at Victoria. It is the result
of the wandering, aimless agricultural policy pursued, whose head lacks vision and is
out of touch with the farmers. British Columbia wants a policy that will attract
farmers, not one to drive them out.   7V        :        -7 ��� V      W
It is becoming daily more apparent that farmers'with irrigated lands at Grand
Porks are going to suffer-seriously as result of the Government's lack of sympathy
for the farmer; some will be driven from their land. An Irrigation system should
not be a hindrance to farming, but made a real live asset. The Minister of Lands
and Premier apparently take no notice of the'fact that this system was "forced on
many farmers at a time when costsfwere excessively high; nci re-Valuing, no easing
of the cost, the farmer must pay- or get off, the Government must have its "pound of
flesh". The best hope from the Oliver administration is that the fateful day-of payment may be put off for a time. Personally, I feel'that the water which Nature sends
from our great mountains and which produces big revenue for' thez; government
through water power, etc., should; be made to pay for irrigating these flue arid tracts
which can thus be made to produce so handsomely; and should I be seat to Victoria
I pledge my best efforts in developing a policy which shall, relieve Tanchers. of this
burdensome .principal charge. I see no reason why these canals should not be installed by the Government which will get greatly increased revenue from" the land thus "
Then the Doukhobor trouble. When the Government waits ' for two years
watching the Doukhobor schools go up in smoke, the voting public is apt to regard .
the present spasm on1 the eve of a bye-election not as an obvious duty but as a political expedient. There are no prosecutions taking place in the Kootenays, though
that is where thc bulk of the Doukhobors reside. And there seems no good reason
for special commendation for action -by the Government, which is only, doing its duty
������making the Doukhobor obey the laws the same as any other citizen. It is unfortunate that it has taken thc Government so long to attempt to do its duty.
You are going to be urged to vote for the Oliver Candidate on ' the ground
that, being an Oliver supporter the Government will do more for him than it will do-
for an Opposition member. This is an insult to any fair-minded elector; if the Government will not do its duty except when it becomes a POLITICAL BAIT, I hope
there are enough red-blooded citizens who will register an emphatic disapproval of
such a policy on "April 25th:     . '
.'Promises at this late date will avail them nothing; Oliver has been in office ,
nearly nine years, and his Government has had ample time to remedy the situation
���but it has utterly failed. It is now within the power of the electors of Grand
Porks-Greenwood riding to speak for the WHQLE PROVINCE and further emphasize
the 68 per cent, adverse vote which was registered' against the Oliver Government
it. the last election, an-administration-which-was again denounced""emphatically "in
North Okanagan last fall. - , W  .-
" " -I have been a resident of Grand Porks" for:24 years and have always taken.an
active part in the life of the district, am personally in touch with each of the sections'
and I feel that I am fairly well versed with your requirements, and "pledge-myself at
all times to work in the interests of my district and the Province at large to the
end that we may establish confidence in the country .by the outside ' public, and bring
prosperity once more to all. ' ' -   -
Owing fo the short lime before election day, you will realize that it is physically impossible.-for me to see you personally, hence I am forced to take this method ,
of asking not only for your vote but also your influence in aid of decent, sane Government in British Columbia. Yours faithfully, "     '
Oliver's Frenzied Finaiice
Mr. Oliver, the super economist, who during the past eight
years has saved at the spigot and wasted at tpi'e bung, with the result;
that during that time the Provincial debt has risen from 19 millions/
to 76 millions. '

What Liberal"Conservatives Stand For
The Conservative Party alms to give British Columbia
aa honest, forceful and fearless government, and aspires to
reduce taxation by lessening the expenditure of administration; to stabilize industry, thus providing a maximum employment in existing productive enterprises and encouragement of new development of the resources of the country,
and to restore the confidence of all in the soundness of the
province and its institutions. .
The Liberal administration, after seven years in oflice,
leaves the province in a wretched condition, with nothing
to show for the waste of millions of the people's money.
Citizens of British Columbia have lost all confidence in the
government, and outside capital baa been frightened away
by the excesses of extravagance, and- burden of taxation."
Thousands of, young men-and women have been driven from
their homes to seek employment elsewhere, while the
machine government at Victoria went on its merry way
distributing -contracts to its chosen friends with a lavish
hand for the construction of courthouses, asylums, schools
aad other public works.
It spent millions on a doubtful reclamation scheme
while the farmers of the interior let their crops rot for
want of markets, and squandered hundreds of thousands
oa a useless industrial department wMeh yielded only mortgages and rusting machinery.
Ia 1917, the Oliver administration took over a province that boasted 15,000 miles of the best roads in the
West today. Except for a few miles of paved highway built
by party Mends at tremendous cost, there is today hardly a
road in the province flt to travel on.
British Columbia Is today at the parting of the ways.
The province requires an administration that will insure
a return of confidence of the industrial investor; that will
<enconrage the development of mines; protect the forest resources from exploitation for the benefit of foreign countries and develop onr timber industries within the province; conserve onr great game assets; give proper assistance to our fisheries with a view to maintaining them as m-
permanent industry and assist our farmers to scire thcir
marketing problems. Such a goveramenL the Liberal-Conservative Party is pledged ��0 give to the people of British
For every 32 votes cast for the Oliver Government, June 20, 1924, 68
were cast against It. - V-
Look at.your provincial tax notices
and you will see that Oliver has increased them from three to five hundred per cent, iri the past five years.
Oliver had jobs on the roads for
all-comers, before the election, and"
stopped work two days after.
John Oliver paid Major Clarke
$3,011 of you money to go to India
and bring back two settlers for the
South Okanagan project.
On the eve, of the 1920 election,
John Oliver gave the Northern Construction Company an increase of-SO
per cent, for its work on the P.Q.E.
and made the increase retroactive to
the first of the year. This cost the
taxpayers of B.C., nearly $700,000.-���'
Generous John!
Anyone who votes for McPherson on,April 25th no matter from
what motives, whether sympathy,"
or "liking for the man, 3 lively
sense' of favors to come, or any
other motive, votes for Oliver and
a continuance of the old abuses.
Further, any Provinciai Party
man who votes for McPherson
registers his concurrence with
Oliver in his vices on our late
campaign, and so goes back on
al! our work.
It Is therefore, I hold, the
hounden duty of every man and
woman, who worked and voted
for the Provincial Party, in the
general election, to work and
vote for the Conservative candidate now and so ensure such a
majority against Oliver as wil! be
a repudiation of his Iibeis_on our
work and of h=s statement that
the electorate in general has confidence in the Oliver government/
