Decoration Day
The rain on Saturday, 24th
May, did not in the least dampen
the ardour of those who attended
the first Annual Decoration Day
services of the War Memorial at
Ingram Bridge, when a very impressive service was held.
The Monument to our fallen
heroes was raised chiefly by voluntary labor and is built of
natural boulders in the form of a
pyramid 9 ft^ high, aloof on
Ingram Flat, "yet the centre of
the district where . community
gatherings are held, the Greenwood District Memorial stands,
''on the square," its sides pointing from every direction, ever
upward. Its inset slab commemorating the greatest sacrifice man
can make for his fellow-men^���a
constant reminder of high ideals
to all who pass along the
Boundary'highway.
After a stirring speech by-
Major F. E. Glossop and a prayer
by the Rev. E. A. St. G. Smythe,
the blessing was then pronounced
by Rev. W. R. Walkinshaw and
followed by the singing of the
National Anthem. "Scotty"
Fawns, supported by the Midway troupe of Boy Scouts, played
a lament on the bagpipes, as
flowers were placed round the
pyramid.
The following is a gist of
Major Glossop's speech:
The Major opened his remarks with an
explanation ofthe nature of the services
and stated that this was the first of an
annual meeting for the. purpose of placing wreaths, etc., with a short address
and prayers.
Seeing the Memorial whenever I pass
this way three thoughts recur to my
mind. They are of rst, Gratitude; and,
Remembrance and 3rd, Inspiration,
Gratitude to God for the final triumph of
Right over Wrong. We do not want here
to go over the history of the causes of the
War or to remember .the desperate and
often diabolical means used by our opponents to. win it. Suffice it to say had.they
won, all civilization would have been
dominated for some time, by the basest
forms of materialism and oppression ever
known. - It was to. defeat this -'end that
men of all nations and'creeds and. from
every walk in life, as they.came to realize
it, joined hands and/regardless "of their
own lives and occupations,, went'forth to
do their duty, to humanity. It has been
beautifully ��� said -of. those- who ..'fell that
;'they died as few .men get, the chance to
die"���we "may rest .assured that' thej" are
content,. so ytoo "should we/ be. who, now
honour them by this act of Remembrance;
/Thus we'.come to thoughts of- Remem-.
braace and. Inspiration. Time- passes
.very swiftly.-.It is nearly ten years" since*
-the War broke/out. - Another generation
is.rapidly growing up to'replace, us arid it
is our-Duty* to see that theyf'are taught .to"
hpnour,-.^16v.e of- country7and.'sc_. vice -to
mankind.-This Monument; to "31. citizens
from Greenwood District should help them
toremember.these duties and make them
proud- of their, birthplace, .and by. these
Annual .Meetings the .right spirit . of
mutual help and'; linselfi'shiiess can again-
be called to. mind and fostered/in the.
.young people7atan 'age .when .they are
most capable of receiving impressions���
never afterwards to be forgotten. , In this
Dominion, particularly i��- the more remote country districts of it, .the spirit of
mutual help is universal so the' lesson- is
already half learned.; All over _tbe;civil-
ized and uncivilized "world are Monuments
to commemorate certain events or certain-
men who hive made' their marks upon
their own times. .It would seem-asif-it
were necessary in"- this work-a-day. world
of ourstbbave some' visible reminder of;
things worth while and therefbrel suggest,-
ja concluding,' that'this Memorial should
always bring to our minds "Grateful remembrance of those whose names ore inscribed thereon and a reminder ofthe-
duties every man, woman aiid child owes
lo the Community he or she lives in,-and
-to humanity at large; and an 'inspiration
to us ail that should a time-' ever, come'
when we also may-be called .upon; -to' do
something; worth while for our country or
humanity we will be 'ready to do our-utmost even as they-did whose memory, we
here-commemorate.""
.. The last words on the Tablet really.
embrace all that could be said of written
on the subject,. "Lest We Forget."

Miss Doreen Hamilton returned

The childrens sports and Maypole at Ingram Bridge held after
the Decoration Ceremony at the
Monument were much enjoyed by
both parents and children in spite
of the showers of rain. Much credit must be given ts Mrs. R. Norris, who during the last few weeks,
had spent much time training the
children every afternoon to learn
the Maypole Dance. The situation
of the Maypole had been admirably
chosen and the general effect
from the spectators point of -
view * waB extremely pretty. A
large number of competitors came
out for the? various races and the
obstacle race provided great attraction. The Farmers Institute donated $10 towards the prize money
and the balance was made up by a
collection on the field and the committee were highly pleased at the
generosity of those present. The
baseball sgame Rock Creek vs.
Greenwood juniors was played before lunch and a closely contested
game ended in a win for Rock
Creek by 10-7 who took the prize
money0of 89. The following were
on the committee for the sports
J. Madge, R...Norris, F. Bubar, E.

Electricity From The Air    )
Successful   Experiments   Which   May
Ultimately Lead to  Valuable
Discovery
A successful beginning Is reported
to have b-aen luade in tho extraction
of electricity from the atmosphere on
a commercial scale at Pafcna, a village
in Bengal.     In a   communication   to
Nature, Mr. K. P. Bhattacharyya says
the preliminary experiments began in
November, 1922, and were made with
largo   paper   and   linen Idles,. wound
with a netwoik of copper wires con-
length. Great utility in wartime-is
claimed for it because it makes uso of
certain combinations of wave lengths
which must be known before iimos
sago can he picked up.     In commer-
comnuiniacllng with the ground by a
cord formed of silk-covered copper
wire. Owing to rapid oxidization,
however, iho 'copper wires -were replaced    by   silver wires.     The kites
eial use il would permit broadcasting rose to nine hundred feet, when it was
stations to charge a  fee for listening
in ou their programmes.
while \V;'.;tein people favor the completion of the road and proving the l'eu.s-
ibi'iiy ami praei icabiiiiy ol the route, thcir voice has been largely inarticulate
in making their demand et'feeiive in Ihe face of strong Kast ern opposition.
Steps are now being taken through the organization of tlie "On-to-the-
I!a.\" A-i_;:>eiaiion. with branches in every section of the "West, to so organize
existing public opinion that its voice may bo heard insistently and loud, and
pressure brought to bear on the Federal Parliament to vole, the necessary appropriation I'or the completion of lhe railway. There should not he the
slightest hesitation on the part of prairie dwellers to join the ''On-to-tho-llay"
Association; on the contrary, their support should be unanimous and cn-
ttui.-iasiic.
. Object ion is raised in the Kast that the Hudson's Day route is dangerous; but. the St. .Lawrence ruuto to Montreal is notoriously one of tho most
dillictilt and dangerous in the world, yet it litis been made a success until
Montival is now one of ihc great ports of the world. It is further objected
that continual dredging at ihe liny'..oris will hi.' necessary; but everybody
knows thai this is equally true in the St. Lawrence. It is argued by opponents thai, ice in the Hudson's Straits will prove an insurmountable obstacle;
but the ice is just as big off the Straits of Hello Isle and Cape Race, and in
addition the Lower St. Lawrence route suffers from fogs which make the See
doubly dangerous, where as the Hudson's Pay i.s free from fogs. Finally,
it is objected that tin.- ports on I.he Pay are not natural harbors; but many
of the groat harbors of the world are not-so by nature, including Montreal
and Hover.
With dilliculi.ies io be overcome no greater than those contended against
successfully" in malting Montreal a great port, there is the decided advantage
from the Western standpoint that tho Hudson's Pay route from the heart of
the wheat growing prairies lo Liverpool is .1,000 miles shorter than it is by
way of Montreal, which means the saving of an expensive rail haul of that
distance. 0   .   '

Col. Wroughtbn Leaves Picturesque
: Force After Many Years Service
After thirty-seven years of romantic service with the Mounlies, whose
daring exploits and fidelity lo duty
played an important part in preparing
tho way fort civilization's establishment in Western Canada, Assistant
Commissioner Theodore AX Wrough-
ton, of the .R.C.M.P., has retired, y
v Col. Wrought on joined the- Norti-
wfest. Mounted Police- :iS constable in
1SS7, was promoted to bo inspector
In 189S and ultimately elevated to
the post of assistant commissioner iu
1919.
He was one to whose lot fell tho
romantic, If arduous, duty of pursuing
single-handed crime and wantonness
across the trackless prairie,- later acting at once/as prosecutor and magistrate among 25,000 men in the wild
rush for gold in the Yukon, '.after
which he was given completo dominion ovei millions of. square, miles of
Arctic waste.
Following..many years of service in
this isolated territory, the colonel
went to South Africa in charge of a
troop of the 2nd Canadian Mountedi
Rifles, and on his return from the hot
veldt, he was sent to the other extreme, going to Dawson, Yukon Territory, as inspector of.the R.N.W.M.P.
In the first two-years in Which he
was in_ command of the Yukon, Col.
Wroughton sentenced 2,000 persons
in the public court, and in this way
he was able to put an end to" the
reign of tliB-daiico halls and the gun.
So well did the 150 officers and men
of the force do their work, lhat the
streets of Dawson became as safe as
those of an eastern city.
New Malady In London
Commuters to London Suffer From
Train "Shell Shock"
The daily journey to London from
the more distant suburbs leads in
many instances eventually. lo- train
"shell shock,:' according lo medical
experts.
The injury develops very gradually
and is caused by tho swaying aud
jolting of the train, the continuous
change of scene compelling the adjustment of the eyes, and the noises
which trouble the ears, all of which
produce a state-of semi-stupor. ""The
results are irritability-, uncertainly ot
judgment, failure of memory, loss of
appetite, worrying about trillvs and
incapacity to a; tend lo business.
Relics  Of the Frank Slide
Further Excavations Have Been Halted By the Police
Further .excavations of the Frank
Slide, where several skeletons were
found, have .been stopped by the police, and it is probable'that the*60 odd
bodies which still lie beneath the
scrambled avalanche of rock will remain as mother nature interred them
22 years ago. r>
The discovery of bodies Was first
made, after a lapse!of many years,
just a few days ago, when a .number
of skeletons were accidentally discovered. The Frank slide disaster occurred in 1902, a large loss of lifo and
heavy property damage resulllng from
the landslide of rock uponUhe littlo
town of frank.
The report that lhe UnionBank may
be unearthed is somewhat far-fetched,
for J. II. Farmer, who was manager of
the bank at. the time, is authority for
the emphatic.statement that the bank
building was not even touched. Tho
wrecked cotlage uuearthed contained
a bag. of marbles; pipe, sewing machine, dishes and .other mute reminders of The tragedy.

Say Canada's Exhibit'
Of Furs Disappointing
Officials Wished Wembley Visitors to
Forget "Frozen North" Idea
Visitors to the Canadian buildings
at Wembley express surprise und disappointment at the unrepresentative-
display of furs. Canada, is, generally
regarded as oue of the world's greatest
fur-producing countries. When the
question was put.up to the responsible,
authorities they stated that a few silver foxes were a I present enroute to
the exhibition, although they had-not
yet arrived. They state-further that
the small display of furs made was
entirely due-, to ��� the expressed desire
from aUsectious of Canada, both official and unoflichil that there should
be.no undue emphasis put upon" tho
Dominion as fhe country of the
"Frozen North." in the same way,
and for the same reason, there is
nothing descriptive in ihe exhibits of
Canada's far-famed winter- sports,
and that for this reason little attention is paid at Wembley to the question of attr.icdng tourists to the Dominion.  -        .
THE CHEERFUL WOMAN
Clever Operation
.: o        By English Surgeon
Successfully Grafted New Eyelid3 On
Liverpool Munition Worker
A wonderful ��� operation at Liverpool
Royal Infirmary has brought ^relief to
a man who lost both eyelids while employed among chemicals^ and who for
six years has been unablo to close his
eyes.
The man, a chemist, went to England from California during the war
to join ..the British army, but was
sent to Gretna munitions factory and,
put to work in the chemical laboratory.
In June, 1917, ho was handling a
tube filled with sulphuric acid when
the phial burst and his face was badly splashed.
The left eyelid was burnt away, and
the other was partly destroyed, the
skin being burnt off one side of his
face.
At an Edinburgh hospital the first
attempt was made, without success, to
graft new eyelids.
"Finally I came to Liverpool," he
said,'''entering the Royal Infirmary a
fortnight later. A prominent surgeon undertook to perform an operation for grafting, and now: I have two
new eyelids.
"The surgeon took skin from my
own arm, .and eyelashes have even
grown across the rims of the lids.
"I have been rescued from indescribable, tot tur?." the man added.
The operation ls regarded as one of
the most difficult in surgery.

A very sad drowning accident
occurred at Christina Lake last

of 10/went out in an old boat and
when they got in the middle of
the lake the bottom of the boat
gave way. Only two of the party
Hugh Ferguson and his sister
Mamie, of Kettle Falls, Wash.,
managed to keep afloat by holding on to a   piece   of   wreckage.
The following were drowned:
D. D. Englund, aged 35, and
son Dannie, aged 5, of Wenatchee
Wash.    Leaves a wife.
Ole Skands, aged 36, of Christina Lake, leave a wife and four
children.
Knute Palm, aged 19, whose
parents reside near Fife, B.C.
Miss Ruth Sturman and Jack
McDonald, of Kettle Falls.
Axel Carlson, aged 40, leaves a
wife and child in Anaconda, Mt.
Benjamin Johnson, aged 60, of
Cascade, B.C., leaves a wife.
The public meeting addressed by
Hon. John Oliver, Premier, and
Mr. E. C. Henniger, Liberal Candidate, at the Opera House, Grand
Forks, on Friday evening last appears to have been quite a successful affair from the standpoint of
the Government's friends and supporters, many of whom declare
that Hon. Mr. Oliver speech waB
tbe ableEt effort he has ever made
before a local audience.
The chair was occupied by Mr.
D. McPherson, President of the
Grand Forks Liberal Association,
who, in opening the meeting, explained that it was scarcely to be
expected that a very large crowd
could attend on that particular
evening, the general run of people
being occupied with events connected with the celebration of following day. The holding of the
meeting on tbis particular evening
was due j.o0the. arrangement of the
Premier's itinerary, which made it
impossible for him to allot any
other date to this Riding.
Before the meeting had got well
under way the building was comfortably filled and it was estimated
that nearly 300 people attended.
Mr. Henniger was first called
upon and, after explaining that he
could not take the time for an extended speech���the people being
undoubtedly anxious to hear the
Premier���threw his hat into the
ring to win the coming election
and intends to do so. He thanked
the people for the honours they
have airead}' done him and referred
to his record of activity as a member of the City Council, the School
Board and the Board of Trade as a
proof of his always having endeavoured to do his bit for the
community. "As your representative in the legislature for tbe past-
four years," said Mr. Henniger,
"I have served you to the beet of
my ability, sometimes under trying
circumstances, and I feel that
what I have accomplished during
that time, as well as my record
since I have lived in Grand Forks,
entitles.'me to your continued-support and:". I am' not afraid - to have
:my .record-in that respect compared
with tji'ose^of- the other,candidates"
in. this7electibu.'-'.7.-7He'deal,t briefly",
with'the question of public expenditure,, taxation and thepublic/debt,
pointing out feh'atV.while.Mr. Bowser'
chiimeil-: the .Liberal' -Government
had- increased .the- .public,; debt to
more, tha-n $_7O,QOG,00P,-, t.his :.was
not making any "allowance for-various investments and - revenuepro-',
ducing debts, -sinking funds etc..,
whjch actually.'reduced the -net
debt o'f the province" to approximately v?v3S,'GO0.000.7^
���ince,''' ��� he-said,". has a' greater .Sink-

obinbiued,--,excluding Ontario,, and.
our Sinking Fund makes a favorable
comparison.even .with", that of that
old and :long settled''province.'
Furtheimore, this Government, has
so handled the public, business of
British Columbia that our. bonds
.brings tlie' very highest price in the
money.markets' of the world." Mr.
Henniger then outlined a number
bf the . beneficial..measures. passed
by thefOiiver Government since it"
came to office and he reminded the
people ..that jf-:we-are to main tain
these generous services the expenses
must be paid by, someone. ..''.The
Mothers' Pensions-Act,"'passed by
tbis Government inl920, is one.of
"the best-" pieces, of.' legislation, ever
passed,,by any .Government. .Its
administration is 'centralized under
the; ���"-. Workmen's - - Compensation
Board, and a.sy mpathetic ad mi nis-
tration .of��� the-Act-is fmade" p'ossibie
by'a'.system which utilizes "women

provisions;.; ."-During the calendar

the matter of.generosity to indigent
mothers and young children, B. C.

Mr. Henniger briefly cited the
various sums of money which had
been spent in Grand Forks.,j.��nd
district daring the past three or
four ..years,; to show, that he7had
not', be'eri; .''.'asleep." on." ffchie^fjob"; and

than May 23rd could have been
allotted to Grand Forks but waa
pleased at the opportunity of addressing snch a large gathering of
electors. He fllatly denied Mr.
Bowser's statement that the government was bringing on the elections on June 20fch next with the
object of "stealing it." "Mr.
BowBer" said the premier, "has
been nagging at us for more than a
year, coaxing us to bring on an
election and assuring us that he
was ready for it, but now he tells
the people that we brought it on
because we want to steal it." "In
fact," declared Mr. Oliver, "I am
pleased to state that, through my
efforts, we have an Election Act iu
this province which makes it impossible for any person or party to
Bteal an election. Because of an
amendment which I introduced a
few years ago we have the best
Election Act iu the world."
The Premier defended the
Sumas Reclamation scheme. This
scheme has reclaimed over twenty
thousand acres of the finest agricultural land in the province, and its
value may be best judged from the
fact that land canuot today be purchased except at very  high prices)'
The Premier then explained the
matter of the so-called Mahogany
doors and English-made locks, etc.
used in the construction of the addition to the Mental Hospital afe
Essondale. These locks were purchased from fehe very some firm as
those which Mr. Bowser's government had used in the original
building, and both fehe doors and
locks were purchased largely because ifc was desirable to have fchem
match with those used in the balance of the building. The balance
of Mr. Bowser's statements is untrue declared fehe Premier.
Mr. Oliver nexb went into the
history of fehe P.G.E.Ry., having
reference particularly feo its relation with the large expenditures of
the government in recent years. He
outlined fehe protracted negotiations
which finally lead.to a settlement
and the taking over of the road by
the government^ "Iain criticized
today for having made that setfele-
mpnb but I want to tell you that;
the terms of that settlement! made
known to the people .of British Columbia for fully six weeks before
.fehe agreement was signed and.not
one person-mentioned the matter;

keenly irifeere8ted._in\his. remarks on.
fchis subject. 'As an example of
the injustices suffered .by- this province on account of rate discriminations he pointed out that the car-f

miles, is $2.40 per hundred pounds,
while from Grimsby* Onb.; to Hali:

amounts . to not less than 45 cents
per box on apples, "Vhich is prob-'
