Thomas Meakes, city electrician, of

when the pole gave way. On striking
the ground Mr. Meakes received injuries to his v head, which appeared
slight, but on Wednesday his condition
became serious.'-
His sudden passing came as a shock
to not only residents of Grand Forks
but to his acquaintances in Greenwood.
Grand Forks has lost- a, very popular
citizen. He is survived by his wife and
children.
NEWER RASPBERRIES.
The daughter was in the middle of
her.. singing lesson when the mother
came into the room. She listened for
a moment or two, and then broke in:
"How is 'Lizabeth getting on? Do
you think she'll make a goo.d singer?"
The teacher seemed at a,, loss for a
reply. .
"It's, hard to ^determine just now,"
he answered.
"But surely she. possessess some of
the qualifications?"
"���er���madam, she's got a mouth,
certainly."
(Experimental Farms Note).
There are always new varieties of
fruit advertised in the catalogues to
attract the eye of the fruit grower.
Frequently many of these newer sorts
have.more merit in descriptions given
them than they have in trial grounds.
It so happened however, that recently there have been added to our
raspberry list a few sorts of outstanding merit. The newest of these is the
Viking, a berry worthy of trial by any
grower. In strength of,, cane and
plant vigor ;it is- decidedly superior,
while in size qf.': fruit,. attractiveness
and productiveness it belongs to the
highest order. For three years it has
proved hardy in eastern Ontario where
it is well grown. We believe it has a
permanent place in fruit plantations.
Another variety not so new, but of coh-
sidrable merit is the Newman. This
variety while not so tall and vigorous
a grower as Viking has given excellent
yeilds for several years. Its fruit is
large and very firm, constituting the
best shipping berry we have yet met.
Any grower who has not tried it should
make its acquaintance-at once. Two
other varieties should received mention, one is the Victory, which so far is
indistinguishable from the Cuthbert.
The other is Latham, a very good variety which has proved exceptionally
hardy. While it has all the merits of a
first class sort it is not at all superior
to Herbert under our conditions, and
we cannot see any good reason for its
replacing that sort.
Lea��d Struck
On The D. A.
The Gold Bug lead was encountered
on Monday afternoon, in the lower
tunnel of the D. A. owned by the J. R.
Mines, Ltd. This was the good news
that Supt. Jas. Skilton reported to The
Greenwood Ledge oh his way home
from the property on Tuesday afternoon.
The property was visited by a party of
Greenwood men including the editor
the day previous to the strike, Supt.
Skilton and C. S. McRae, the well
known Deadwood prospector, conducting the tour of the claims.
The lead known as the. Gold Bug
was first discovered on the property
last fall. - It was stripped on the surface, and thoroughly defined for over
100 feet, with a dip of 42 degrees.
This is the same lead that brought the
Gold Bug claim into, prominence in the
early days of the camp. It adjoins on
the east and is in a direct line witlL'the
Providence mine.
Development commenced in what is
known as'the upper tunnel It. was
driven only a short distance on the
lead which proved to carry high values,
about 30 tons of ore being taken out
at that .time. This showing, made the'
management more optimistic than ever
and it was decided to go down the hill
about 100 feet and drives, tunnel to
tap the ore at depth. This 'is the tunnel in which the ore was struck. It is
in 150 feet, the ore showing in the face
one. round after going through the
calcite fissure. It is a wonderful sight
to look into the minature caves of the
fissure when illuminated by light from
a miner's lamp.
It is the intention of the manage-'
ment to continue the" tunnel for another 40 feet which will give plenty ot
room to start stoping. ��� It is estimated
that a raise of 70 feet can be made on
the ore.
; The new strike adds another chapter
to a story of real mining accomplishments which must be credited to Jas.
Skilton and son, J. R. Skilton for continuing development., when at times
the showings did not look very
promising.
Elkhorn Resumes on Friday
The Elkhorn Syndicate " have announced that operations will resume at
the Elkhorn mine, Greenwood, on
Friday morning. The property has been
closed for a few months. It was not
stated where, work will start.

CHINCHILLA VALUES IMPROVE
The Canadian Small Breeds' associa^
tion is ;��� paying the .highest price - ever
paid in North America for rabbit pelts.
Three dollars each is the price actually paid net to members for the top
grade Chinchilla pelts, an increaseF of
$1.10 over the net price paid at this
time last year. "Tlie fur board of the
C. S. B. A., created at the beginning of
this year, is responsible for this, .i
During the past three years the C. S.
B. A. have, spared neither time nor
expense in finding the'best outlet for
the .product of their members. The
first attempt to market. Chinchilla
pelts in Canada by the association '
brought:offers of fifteen and twenty-
five., cents each. This of course-was
promptly refused. (By:comparing,this
with the present price of three dollars, -
some idea may be gained: of the .work
accomplished by the association;) The
next step was to secure the services of
a commission house to grade and offer
the pelts for sale. This was accomplished-, and the price, was gradually increased. The English market was then
investigated with a view of disposing
of our pelts there.
- By the time arangements could be
completed, prices' had. risen in Canada
till they were almost at/par with those
in England. The shipping' charges
more than made up for, the difference
in price and it - was decided to; drop
this scheme for the time. The new
system, just inaugurated in January
this year, is in keeping with the association's past endeavours to secure the
best possible prices. We are now pay-'
ing higher prices than ��� the English
breeder is obtaining,from his association. ���Farm and Home. THB   GREENWOOD   LEDGE

Fresh Resources Are Unveiled
By Recent Surveys In North
Each year in Canada surveys are
pushed farther into the hinterland
and each advance discloses valuable
resources of. which citizens had not
previously been aware. The Peace
River District has been popularly
thought of as thc last "inland empire"
in that direction, but an engineer of
the Topographical Survey of the Department of the Interior during tho
summer of 1927 penetrated west ancl
north of the outermost edge of Peace
River and found a land of fertile
grassy hills, of high rolling open
plateaus upon whicli roam flocks of
Rocky Mountain goats and bighorn
sheep and herds of caribou, and
where the grizzly bear takes his ease
with dignity. The country is drained by clear, cold, fish-teeming rivers
and streams which have their rise
in the glaciers of the main range of
the Rockies to the west.
The investigations of the exploratory party extended in general over
au area 80 miles west and 175 miles
north oi: Hudson Hope, or roughly
between latitudes 56 degrees and 58
degrees, and longitudes 122 -degress
and 124 degrees. Fifteen years ago
the south-eastern corner of this country, the nearest point to civilization,
lay distant from Edmonton, a six
weeks' journey of hard travelling.
Now, with improved rail and steamboat facilities, it can be reached in
summer in as many days. The southerly edge of this area was first touched in 1793 by Sir Alexander Mackenzie during his famous overland journey to the Pacific. Later on the more
accessible portions of the Peace and
Finlay Rivers were explored!   ,-
As a result of.the season's work a
total of about 10,000 square miles, of
new territory was' covered and information obtained for the issue of a
preliminary map.
CANADIAN NATIONALITY
Would Give Official Recognition
To a Canadian Race
The public will await with keen interest the debate and the-decision of
the Canadian House of Commons on
the bill introduced by Dr. Bissett, of.
Springfield, to establish a Canadian
nationality and a Canadian race. Certain provision has been made by the
Government to give Canadian nationality some official standing outside of
Canada, but within the Dominion no
one ever is born, married, or dies as
a Canadian. They are listed as English, Scotch, "Irish, Dutch, German,
Russian, or what not, but there is
no recognition of the term "Canadian." Dr. Bissett's motion asks the
Government to give official standing
to Canadian nationality for use in all
documents and papers, and also to
give official recognition to a Canadian race by subscribing to the principle, that persons of white stock born
in Canada i'or three or more generations, shall be entitled to classify
themselves as of the Canadian race.
The first matter, having to do with
nationality, should be' comparatively
easy of settlement. The term "Cana-'
dian nationality" in relation to persons born here or persons who have
accepted naturalization, ���> should be
all-embracing. It should have the
same face valuo at home as abroad.
No other country is so poor in spirit
as to ask its citizens to be known by
some other name than, that of the
country Uiat has given them birth,
or to which they have given allegiance. It' is to be hoped the Government at Ottawa will take whatever
steps are necessary to give full effect
to. the purpose of Dr. Bissett's motion with respect to nationality.���

A Super-Loud Speaker
Tested Under Favorable , Conditions
Heard Five Miles Away
A super-loud speaker which can
turn the sound from a crystal set into
a volume louder than that of the Albert Hall organ, has been brought to
this country from the continent.
It is claimed to be. the. loudest loudspeaker in the world.
Tested under favorable conditions
on the Lido it was heard five miles
away. Built on the electro-dynamic
principle and driven by a .1,500 volt
generator, this loud-speaker has a
22 in. diaphragm, which floats on a
pneumatic rubber pad; is said to have
100 per cent, volume over anything
else in Britain; amplifies speech music, gramophone or radio; can address plainly without distortion a
crowd of 150,000.-���'
A gramophone record was connected to the giant speaker recently and
an engineer in the basement was instructed to increase the volume of
sound.
"Stuffing our ears with : cotton
wool," says a listener, "we stood at
the top of some stairs and listened
to an organ record.
"Apart from the amazing' compass
and selectivity of the amplifier, lhe
volume was so terrific that the walls
of the building and the balustrades
could be felt rocking. The windows
of the office door facing it swayed
to the notes."  ���

It was a very dark night. Murky
clouds obscured the moon in such a
way as; to make driving clangorous in
the uncertain light. :.:.������; :'.y-
''A motor carwas appro aching'the
level .crossing, travelling swiftly
round the.corner that led to the
closed gates. At the precise moment
an express train thundered' over the
crossing. . ^
Too late, the driver of the car saw
his danger. He tried to. swerve, but
a skid was the only result. With a
loud crash he struck the last coach,
and the car crumpled.up on the track.
For a few moments there was a
great silence. Then came a Uiin voice.
"Well, it's cured my hiccups, anyway"; and the driver eravrted out of
the wreck.

Next Two: Months
The rural credits, scheme sanctioned
by Parliament, session before last,
will be put into effect, probably within the next two months.
This is an act whose operation was
contingent upon provinces going into
the plan on a 50-50 basis.' .So far Nova
Scotia, Manitoba, Alberta, and British
Columbia haye expressed in legislation, adherence to the plan. Saskatchewan has a plan of its own.
The Dominion act provides for a
commissioner "and" staff~at~Ottawa~ancl
for local provincial boards to supervise loans. Fifteen million was appro';
priated by Parliament for the purpose which is designed to supplement
existing credit facilities and provide
for bridging what has been termed
the "barren area" of credit between
the short term loans of.the banks and
thtc long term, mortgages ��� of mortgage corporations. .
Explanations nnd Comments
The Demands Of Discipleship,
verses 34-37.���One great truth, Jesus
is the Messiah, the disciples : had
learned; another great truth, the
Messiah must suffer, they had been
told, but, as after-events proved, they
had not grasped; a third great truth
they were now told���the followers of
the Messiah must suffer and sacrifice
likewise.
To the multitudes as well as to tho
disciples Jesus said, "If any man
would come after me, let him deny
himself, and tafte up his cross, and
follow me." Denying oneself does not
mean the giving up of this or that,
but the giving up of self, the repudiating of all. self-centered claims, the
yielding of one's .will to Christ's will.
Not only must his Master endure the
cross, but he himself, Peter learned,
if he would be Christ's true follower,
must be ready to suffer death, too.
"A Christian is a Crucial," is-Luther's comment.
'���"The beautiful thing is that this
appeal of Christ was hot futile. Instead of repelling men it drew them.
He actually obtained .the men whoni
he was hunting for, not by offering
them worldly inducements, not by
making such appeals as anybody but
Christ would have made, but by addressing the sacrificial spirit, in them,
and making an appeaf to their latent
capacity for heroism. There is a wonderful tribute in, Jesus' ; method to
those characteristics in human' nature fcvhich have never been destroyed, which can answer to the highest
motives, : which do not need to,be
bought by any low compensations,
but which spring into full life when
appealed to on the most heroic and
unselfish plane. We know how,- in
consequence, this exultation in difficulties, this love of hardship, this
scorn of ease, became the characteristic note of early Christianity. In the
best summary description which Paul
gives of Christian character and manhood, in the twelfth chapter of Romans, we find him speaking of 'rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation.'And when he comes .to write hia
conception of the character of thc
happy warrior, wc find him setting
this in the foreground, 'Endure hardship, as a good , soldier of Jesus
Christ'."���Robert E. Speer.
"For whosever would have his life
shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose
his life for my sake andNthe gospel's
shall save it," Jesus continued.. The
word life' and the pronoun' it referring
to life, are used in a twofold sense
here. The sentence' means: He whose
only care is to save .his natural life
shall lose his spiritual life; and he
who is willing to lose his1 natural life
for My sake shall find his spiritual
life.

D. McPherson, M.L.A.
Interviewed on Session
(Grand Forks Gazette)
The people generally seem to'regard
the session of the Legislature4 Just
closed as one that was dull and cqioi-
less but it was so only in companion
with the session of last year, which
was noted for its sensations, said u.
McPherson, M.L.A., who returned on
Friday from Victoria and was askeel t>y
The Gazette as to what impressions
thc session just closed had left with
The.session just closed continued
the speaker, while not by any means
a "lqve-feast", was rather businesslike and may correctly be described
as a serious effort to deal with the
major problems and difficulties of pn-
ish Columbia. There were, oi course,
the usual crop of political speeches,
but the longer one is associated with
our legislative work the more one realizes that, in these matters, it is a
case of the bark being worse than the
bite. As the session prorogued Mv.
McPherson felt that between .many
members on opposite sides of the
House there .was a greater measure
of genuine personal friendship than
on any previous occasion. It seems
as though the passing of the old "war
horses" from our legislative arena
syncronizes with a gradual modifying
of the bitter partizanship of former
days and, in the opinion of the Grand
Pcsrks member, while fidelity to party
is' still a dominating factor���not altogether improperly���the new comers in
the legislature are inclined to handle
the business in a more practical and
business way.
Asked as to outstanding measures
dealt with, Mr McPherson said there
were a number of matters of interest
which he outlined as follows:
Long Term Farm Loans
Legislation was passed which enables
B.C. to adopt the provisions of the
Dominion Farm Loans Act and I believe that this was a very wise move.
The. new. method will, no doubt, operate
as. a . substitute for the loans now
handled by our Land Settlement Board.
The chief benefits: of the new system
will be,.that loans-can be,obtained for
a wider-���'���variety'Of purposes, that payments will: be easier for the borrower
without reducing the margin of safety
for the lender and that interest rates,
will he lower.
The Taxation Act amendments provide for a 10%" reduction in net Income
Taxes, the reduction from $6 to $1 in
the minimum sum payable under the
"Turn-over: Tax" as applied to business
concerns, and a 50% reduction under
the same tax as affecting professional
occupations.
The "Poll Tax Act" was amended to
raise from 18 to -21 "years the age at
which this tax- applies and certain
other measures of relief under the same
act were adopted.
The amendments to the Water Act
provide for a'.welcome measure of relief .to farmers in "Irrigation Districts."
Ifc is safe to say that, while some of our
people could stand even greater relief,
the generous proportions of the measure adopted came as a pleasant surprise, to many, especially in view of the
scanty recommendations made by Commissioner Swan. Detailed consideration of this matter cannot be undertaken here but it may safely be
assumed that a good deal will depend
on the manner in which the relief is
applied, all of which will take some
time. I have given a good deal of
thought to' the question of the reverted and vacant lands in this valley,
and in accordance with my request,
_Mr. Paul_Black" has been instructed^to
study'the situatioffahd co-operate with"
the Board, of Irrigation Trustees and
make recommendations to the Department of Lands. While this is but
a temporary step I hope it may lead to
a. satisfactory permanent plan which
will result in the settlement and
cultivation of our vacant areas.
' A good deal of discussion has taken
place m the press in regard to the
action of the House in continuing the
present system of "Absentee" voting.
Personally, while I was disposed to
favor a new system, I would point out
that since ,1925 the ..Elections Act requires the "Absentee" ballots to be
counted ��� on ...the night of the election,
so that the stigma of alleged "tampering" with these ballots after close
of the polls should not now be suggested. If there was formerly such
an opportunity it does not now exist
The Motor Vehicles Act was amended to provide for the examination of
applicants for drivers' licenses, as to
their eyesight and other physical
qualities. It is not the purpose to'ap-
?#J!ie Lulei�� drivers who now hold
licenses, but the growth of motor traffic
and, the- increase in accidents are ��such
.as to necessitate this move for the protection, of the public.
��,�� ?,TaA?* was Passed and replaces
the old Act providing for the 3-cent
per gallon tax on gasoline. This was

000,000.". The fact is, these lands are
worth little or nothing except in connection with a colonization scheme, the
basic starting point of which must be
railway extension into the Peace River
district. I am not, of course, in favor
of giving the railroad away but, in so
far as the lands are concerned, if I
could make a fair sale of the road I
would not advocate stinginess in the
way of a land grant. In considering
Sei.?;G-E-. we have to face the fact
that if we keep it we must be prepared
for large expenditures on heavier rails
reduction of grades, renewal of trestles
etc. To. avoid these "expenditures as
well as. the present annual losses on
operation it seems to, me desirable to
sell the road."
llie Orientals
"What about the Oriental question?"
we queried.
The House dealt seriously with this
problem. It is easy of course, to
��� "resolute" on such a matter, as the
- House has been doing for many years.
I believe, however, that the Resolution
passed this year will bear greater fruit
than any previous one and it cannot
be said to have any political complexion whatever. In addition we passed
the so called "Bill B." being a measure
enabling municipalities to have Licensing Boards appointed, such Boards to
have power to refuse licenses to any
person on such grounds as it may think
proDer. The idea of the |iBill is to
facilitate the segregation of Oriental
tradesmen in the cities and to discourage their settlement upon our land.
The fate of the measure is problematical but it will. I hope, at least show
Ottawa that British Columbia means
business in connection with this par
ticular problem." .
Dealing further with various matters considered during the session, Mr.
McPherson continued:
Teacher's Superannuation
"One very important matter submitted was the scheme proposing
Teacher's superannuation. I am inclined to think that this matter is
somewhat misunderstood, as the Teacher's Federation did not recommend
any plan that would bear heavily upon
the provincial treasury. The funds to
afford''' superannuation allowance for
teachers would largely come from the
members of that profession themselves.
The scheme, however, was somewhat
involved and would, it seems to me,
have worked out somewhat unjustly to
certain of the teachers themselves. As
this matter was introduced at a rather
late date in the Session it was considered unwise to proceed with it, and
recomemnclation was therefore made to
have it carefully studied and. re-considered next year."  	
"There is every likelihood that a
scheme of health insurance and maternity benefits for people in rural districts will be adopted m the near future.
This matter will also be investigated
by a Commission during this year."
The   Election���When?
Have you any opinions to express regarding an election?" ventured the
scribe
"That matter is in the lap of the
gods���or the lap of Dr. MacLean. It
will depend on a number of things, the
chief of which, I would suppose, is the
P.G.E. sale. For my part I feel that
the sooner we have it over with the
better. There is still too much "playing politics" in our public life and the
fears and prayers of some people under
the stress of this expectancy cannot
benefit the country at large."
"Did you enjoy the weather and life
in general at the Coast?"
"I rgither enjoyed the climate this
year, more so than oh former occasions
because it was unusually dry ahd inclined to be cold. But weather or no
weather, I am glad to be back to
Grand Forks and to the bosom of my
family. �� '<������

DURING the mediaeval period two neighboring towns in
the Old Country had long engaged in a rivalry as to
which brewed the best beer. During a dispute one day in
early spring, between two brew-masters, one from each of
the towns in question, it was claimed by one that the Beer
brewed by the other lacked strength. To settle the dispute,
the following test was proposed: Each brew-master was to
consume a gigantic tankard of the beer brewed "by his
opponent, after which he was to stand on one leg and thread
a needle. The loser claimed that a goat that had butted in
through the circle of men surrounding the opponents was
responsible for his downfall. The winner laughingly replied: ..'��� It was the Bock
(German word for goat) in the beer." From that time it became customary to brew a
special dark beer called "BOCK BEER" and place it on sale in the Spring of each year.
may be obtained on Saturday, April 7th, 1928, and thereafter until the limited supply
is gone, from the Government Liquor Stores, in bottles, or on draught in any licensed
place at the same price as.regular beer.
Bock Beer is the BREWERS'TREAT, an exceptional brew of high-grade Beer and
aged (lagered) for ah unusually long period. It is a very wholesome and nutritious
beverage, the highest achievement of the skilled Brew-master. Order early to make
sure of a supply. Bock Beer, brewed by the Vancouver Breweries
Limited, Westminster Brewery Limited, Rainier Brewing Company
of Canada Limited, Silver Spring Breweries Limited, and Victoria-
Phoenix Brewing Co. Limited is guaranteed to be absolutely pure
beer.    Order a case to your home for Easter. -
