Residents  Help  Police���Prisoner
In Greenwood Goal
Thomas Kelly, no fixed address, was
arrested last night at Jackson's ranch
near Midway, -after a few days and
nights^ hunt by Constables Powers and
McDonald, Chief of Police G. S.
Walters of Greenwood and Chief of
Police Dan R. Docksteader, of Grand
Forks assisted by a number of residents.
He was brought to the Greenwood Provincial Goal and was given "medical
treatment as he was suffering from, a
bullet wound in the foot. He appeared
before Justices of the Peace, Charles
King and J. R. Ferguson, charged with
wounding and resisting arrest by Constable'W. R. Powers. The case was remanded until July 5th at the request
of the Crown. *
It appears that about 3 a.m. last
Sunday morning a colored man entered the room "occupied by. a young
lady in Salter's Hotel; Midway. The
intruder grabbed' the occupant who
screamed for assistance. The other
roomers rushed to the hall but the
assailant made his escape.
The negro headed for Boundary Falls
where he had dinner at the Anderson
ranch. He was asked to have supper
so that he could be held until the
police came. Constable Powers arrived
and upon trying to make the arrest a
terrific fight developed. "The Constable
emptied his revolver trying 'to scare
the Negro but- this being impossible
they went at it .with fists, rocks, clubs
etc. Both parties became completely
exhausted but the negro was able to get
away.
The following day he showed up at
S. Bubar's ranch, Kettle'Valley. W. C.
Wilson, who happened to be in that
part of the .country,. got on his trail.
Summoning the assistance of Capt.
Brew and his son,the trio soon found
where the wanted man was camping.
Further assistance,then arrived headed
by Constable McDonald and G. S.
Walters. They found his coat, sweater,
lunch and a bottle bf dope. Pickets
were placed In various locations.
About 11 p.m. W. C. Wilson and B.
Brew saw the negro trying to make his
get away in the darkness and' they
opened fire'and gave him eight shots
at thirty yards. This did not halt the
pursued one In fact it spirited him up.
He_climbed.a_-fence=which=was-found-to
be marked with ��� blood' so that some
of the bullets had found a billet.
The patrol was increased but no sign
appeared until Tuesday morning when
he was. again seen in "the 'woods not
far from the golf course. During a
thunder storm .It is supposed he moved
to the Jackson's ranch where he was
captured." This ended a very interesting man hunt.

RECORD PAYROLL IN 1927
All records of previous years were
eclipsed in 1927 by the payroll of British Columbia's industries, according to
figures just made public' by J. D.
McNiven, Deputy Minister of Labor.     ;
The total payroll for 1927 was'$177,-:
522,757.14, as against $175,173,836.47 In,
1926. This is a' remarkable showing,
considering that the period now under
review followed two years of great industrial expansion in the province "and
the gains of 1925 and 1926 have, been
more- than maintained. The returns
received by the department were from
4597 industrial employer's, an increase of
seventy-six over the number for 1926.
When these statistics were first collected in 1918 the number of returns
was 1027 and there has been a progressive increase from tbat year to the
present time.
; The proportion of female workers
enumerated in the returns rose from
6.42 per cent, in 1926 to 6.88 per cent,
in 1927. Most conspicuous among the
industries employing more female workers was garment making, where in
1926 the number ranged from 235 in
January, to 317 In Ocotober. In 1927
the respective lowest and highest number of female workers were 438 in October and 545 in November. PAGE TWO

THE DOMINION'S BIRTHDAY
Birthday Anniversaries have. value
both in displaying and in promoting
affection; they reca.ll the past, they
quicken and revivify feelings about and
towards the future.   -'.-.'���
The birthday of our Dominion flof
Canada on the first of July awakens
only pleasant recollections.
It recalls the beginning of an awareness of the immense possibilities which
lay before a close confederation.of several disconnected provinces arid territories, promising them a voice, a commerce, a political future ��� of: increasing
international importance.
Looking back we see now how pa-
trotism had a rebirth at Confederation.
It .became possible for all Canadians to
think and speak of a Canada "my own,
my native land." They were able to pronounce their desires and opinions with
the authoritative voice of a united, powerful nation. They could with united
soul and force offer needed. assistance
to the Empire in time of necessity.
We have the example of the Christian Church, with its Christmas, Easter,
Whitsuntide, and weekly reminder 'of
its cardinal doctrine of the Resurrection, to prove to us the energizing force
of anniversaries. What the Church
owes to these celebrations can never
be over-estimated.
Canada needs Dominion Day to keep
nt=up=to=the=markrin=patriotismf=arid=
loyal enterprise.   It is ours to realize
and expand the ideals of the Fathers
of Confederation.   ;
Our great duty it is to make ourselves
thoroughly worthy of our membership
in the mightiest Empire our world has
ever known, by developing our potentialities, steadily and sensibly, as did
our ancestors in the old lands through
ages past, by standing steadfastly and
unflinchingly in the paths, of integrity
"aridf righteousriessr""" "y"~"y" .-���-, ��� yy-
Not by blindly groping after some
line of independence which might give
us prominence above nations in our
Empire, but by uniting our strengh
with theirs in order to give added
power to the whole, shall we best answer the claims of loyalty to our country.
The power of the whole is the united
strengh  of  its  parts.   Make  Canada
strong and we help to strengthen our
*   whole Empire.
Make every Canadian strong in loyalty, in usefulness, in righteousness,
and you have a strong, progressive
Canada. **
It is the individual life that tells!
If all Canadians lived their lives every
day according to the Ideals of Dominion
'cpay,  there would be a certainty of
the working out of those ideals to the
fullest extent.
.     Then we should_have a Dominion of
very real progress and happiness ex-
. tending, as was the hope of the founders of Confederation, "from the one
sea to the other, from the flood^-of
'-. lakes and rivers at the south���unto the
world's   end,"   at   the   Artie���Family
Herald and Weekly Star.

The Electors of
Grand Forks - Greenwood Riding:
In this week's issue of the Grand Forks Gazette there
appear, over the name of my apponent, some statements in
criticism of the MacLean Government which are far from
correct and I therefore wish to take the liberty of briefly
referring to them
"1. The Conservative Opposition in the last Provincial
o- Parliament exposed the enormous overcost of public
works under the iniquitous friend favouring, cost-
plus system. ���
RESULT���This year the Government announced the
abandonment of that system."
The foregoing is submitted to you as proof of. thc "alertness" and
other virtues of the Opposition. The Opposition would indeed be "alert"
it' it "exposed" something that did not exist. For your information-
anil that of my worthy opponent���I wish to state that since ihc present Liberal Minister of Public Works assumed that office THERE HAS
NOT BEEN ONE CONTRACT GIVEN ON A COST-PLUS BASIS.
Thc Government did not "announce the abandonment" of that system,
"   foi' thc very good reason lhat such a system was not being' followed.
"2.   The Conservative Opposition demanded justice for
the Trrigationists;. ��� ".'  .   .   .   .    ,V
RESULT���This year the Government is conceding
���     partial relief."
"If the above is intended to leave the impression that no relief was
granted prior to this year it is incorrect. So far as Grand Forks is
concerned a number of important concessions have been made during
the past three years.   Briefly these were as follows:
(a) The original agreement imposed the total cost of the
system on the privately owned lands. Some two years ago the
Government'" agreed lo stand the cost of installation covering
lands owned by-the Crown. v.'".'.,'..
(b) The original agreement was based on joint liability���
each member of the Irrigation District being responsible for the
payment not only of his own share but also that of his neighbours. It is nearly.-two years since the Honourable Minister of
Lands', in conference with lhc Irrigation Board at Grand Forks,
wiped out this feature.
(c) Under the original contract no provision was made for
relieving the owners of privately owned land of the share of the
capital charge assessed against land which reverted to thc District
at-anIrrigation District Tax'Sale. It is approximately two years
since the government undertook io wipe off all such items.
The exact value of the three main; concessions which I have briefly
outlined cannot easily be given in dollars and cents. It can bc stated
fairly definitely, however, that the sum absorbed by the government on
account of last year's District Tax Sale is not far'from'.840,000.00. These
���������'-'concession's" were obtained, may I humbly stale, because of the earnest
-and continued .efforts of���'the��� local Irrigation Board, co-operating with
myself, and not as a result of the "demands" of the "alert" Opposition.
At the last session of the House a Bill was passed enabling the
.government to wipe off-an additional portion of the capital charge, up to
a 'maximum1 of 25% of the original loan together with a corresponding
portion of the accumulated interest. 'THIS WAS DONE, IT SHOULD
.'BE ���������������REMEMBRED,-AFTER AN INDEPENDENT COMMISSION HAD
FULLY INVESTIGATED THE ENTIRE IRRIGATION PROBLEM AND
HAD RECOMMENDED NO SUBSTANTIAL RELIEF. I am convinced
that Grand Forks will receive the maximum benefit under this measure,
which will be equivalent to a cash grant of over $86,000.00, to the local
irrigationists. . yxA :xy-: "-X-. ������..'���"���'���
:   .'37' Tlie conservative Opposition protested against farmers being charged '1���� per cent, on loans, when the
money cost the province as low as 4]/2 per cent."
��� My-.opponent's admission that this government can borrow
money for "as low as 4.4 per cent." is an interesting tribute to its efficiency. It is a far cry from that condition to the state of things when
the late Conservative government borrowed-money at; a cost to. the
province as high as 14 per cent?
The average cost to the province of the monies wliich have been
loaned to farmers by the Land Settlement Board has been 5.41%.   When
the cost of administration'is added the interest rate to the farmer would
==^be"highr=FortunateIy.=ho^^
improving and the rates at which wc can borrow money are becoming
lower and lower.   The maximum cost to farmers now is G%.
Farmers will bc interested in knowing that the MacLean government
enacted legislation at the last session Avhich permits this province to
take advantage of the Dominion Farm Loan scheme. Loans made under
this scheme should not cost fanners more than 5% and they arc repayable oyer a long term of years.
"5.   The Conservative ^Opposition advocated powder at
cost for settlers' land- clearing.    -
RESULT���Cheap powder has become the Liberal
 ,���_;_; yy...slogan" .....,:,.X.i.A:...:.,x::.i...[..xXAAX.i[X,X.y.-:-X:
This is truly a gem. Ever since 1910 the powder manufacturers, by
arrangement with the provincial government, have furnished powder to
Farmers' Institutes at wholesale prices. A special freight rate on such
shipments was also put into effect. In April, 1921, the Oliver government improved the situation further by arranging a rebate of $2.50 per
case on all powder used in clearing land for agricultural purposes.
By what method of reasoning does my opponent now argue that
"cheap powder has become the Liberal slogan"?
Yes, thc Liberal government has abolished thc Personal' Property
Tax, reduced the Income Tax and modified other taxes where there was
any likelihood of an undue burden being placed upon any industry,
individual or class. These reductions began several years ago and are
being effected as fast as conditions permit. l
My opponent might very well inform the public how He appreciates
the reduction of 50% in tiie Turnover Tax applying lo him as a professional man, which reduction was effected at the last session of the
House.
A question suggests itself to me: If the Opposition is to be commended for asking for all these things, what about the government
wliich granted them? l

Ships' anchors are deadly
enemies of the two trans-
harbor cables which provide
for all telephonic communication between Vancouver
City  and  North Vancouver.
Five times during the past
nine years, one or the other
of these cables has been
fouled by the. anchor of a
steamer. The resulting strain
on the cables causes the telephone lines in it to go "bad",
and interferes with service
between,the north and south
shores.
Last April the 100-pair
cable was the victim, and until it was repaired the smaller
50-pair cable carried the burden of trans-harbor calls.

BRIDGES* She present valuation
of 63 miles of Bridges is$8,848.000
TTPON the arteries of communication depend the
^settlement and growth of the nation. First the
trails... then the rough oxcart ruts... the wagon roads
... the automobile highways.
The scattered population of British Columbia
has made the construction of roads between
centres a matter of vital importance, yet one'
of almost insurmountable difficulties.
Mountain sides have to be blasted away...
clefts and chasms tresselled_^_^.irivers,bridaed!-
With the opening of the Cariboo Highway
through Fraser Canyon in 1926, the last link
of British Columbia's great arterial highway
... a highway unexcelled the world over as an
engineering feat and one of unmatched scenic
beauty... was forged.
Eastern British Columbia greeted its western
brothers! Markets and railways were brought
closer to the farmer, the miner, the industrialist. New fields for agricultural and trade
development were opened up.
For the ten years just past, an aggressive
highway programme has been carried out.
Thousands of miles of good roads and dozens
of sturdy bridges haye been built.
Our roads system now totals 31,900 miles ...
an increase of over 5,000 miles during the last
ten years. Of this mileage, 12,000 miles are
earth roads; 4,000  gravel roads; and  1,000
macadam, bituminous, concrete and cement
concrete. The 5,000 miles which were added to
our roads system include: 884 miles of main
trunk roads, 602 miles of lateral roads, 281
miles of industrial and mining roads, 1,133
^iles^ofjettlemen^andfarmroads.-and^.OOO"
miles of ordinary and mining trails.
During the years just before 1917, a large
number of bridges had been constructed in the
Province, nearly all of which were temporary
timber structures. Since 1917, the problem of
maintenance and renewal of these structures
has been a serious one, involving a large expenditure,, particularly between the years 1920
and 1927.
The policy has been to improve design of and
workmanship on temporary bridges and to
renew all the large bridges on main highways
over the principal rivers with concrete and steel.
Today, the valuation of our 63 miles of
bridges is nine million dollars.
This construction activity has distributed
wages and salaries over our whole Province
and has been a material aid in bringing about
the current period of* British Columbia's
prosperity.
