The Ground. Up
A man, playing a round of golf, drove
off with a mighty swipe. Something
soared into the air. It was' not the
ball, however, but a big clod of earth
and grass. "Extraordinary!" grunted
the player.
"Yes, sir," remarked the caddy. "It
does seem a bit out of the common."
BASEBALL DANCE IN BEAVERDELL
Was it.a WOW? Yes, two.WOWS!
It would be difficult to describe the
spectacle. The school house was packed inside and out with the greatest
crowd Beaverdell ever saw, and excitement and merriment was at its wildest
pitch from start to finish.
Needless to say the Beaverdell Baseball Club is sitting on top of the world
financially.
Mr. T. Crowe made an excellent M. C.
and-he was ably assisted by Messrs C.
Nordman, D. Murray, and E. Cousins.
The music was provided' by Mr.
Bush's famous orchestra with Mrs. Ted
Clarke at the piano. They started off
in their usual peppy style. ��� The dancers
soon caught the spirit. From that moment till the Home Waltz there "was no
holding them.
There were novelty dances galore.
Mis. C. Nordman won the Elimination
while Miss Heather Harris carried off
the prize for the "Balloon Dance.    .
Mr. D. McPherson made a short
speech in which he dealt with "the
affairs of the Province, Past, Present
and Future. His arguments left little
doubt in the minds of the audience as
to which cause to pursue if they had
the interest of British Columbia at
heart.   " .
Cheers were -proposed which resounded through the Valley. Upon
hearing them the odd few left on the
Mountain would certainly say that it
was a night of revelry.
Mr. C." Nordman was the first to" be
honored; then followed Mr. McPherson
and Mr. J. Bush. They each_repliedun
turn until the affair looked like a mutual admiration society.
v The Dance eventually came to a close
but not'before everybody* had enjoyed
themselves to the fullest extent.

The Liberal Nominating Convention
was held in Midway on Tuesday, June
19th.
Before 8 o'clock cars commenced to
assemble from all.parts of the Grand
Forks - Greenwood Riding. By the time
the meeting was 'called to order the
greatest crowd ever gathered together
in the Boundary .for the purpose of
choosing a candidate had filled the hall.
Secretary Owen Wheeler of Rock
Creek called the meeting to order and
Mr.-John Donaldson, of Grand Forks,
was asked to take the chair.
Mr. Donaldson then explained to.the
audience' why they had been called
together and after a_few eulogistic remarks regarding Mr. D. McPherson,
called for nominations of a candidate
to support the MacLean Government.
Events followed so quickly in the
next few'minutes it was difficult to keep
track. Net results: D. McPherson had
been unamimously nominated as the
Liberal Candidate for the Grand
Forks-Greenwood Riding.
The order of business was as follows:
Motion of- nomination by Mrs. J.
Richter of Ingram Bridge, -seconded by
Mrs. H. -Panriell of Midway. Nominations closed by motion of Mr,-F. Miller
and seconded by Mi*.'-P. Hansen both of
Grand Forks.   .   _

upon for" a speech..' Before responding
he read a resolution which he asked
the convention to pass that he might
forward same to the Honourable Dr.
King at Ottawa"; asking the Federal
Government to reconsider ; the action
taken on the dumping clause as relating to the fruit industry in British
Columbia. On motion of A. Michener
of Grand Forks, seconded by R. G.
Ritchie of Cascade 'the resolution was
unanimously carried.1 -.
'" D. McPherson.proceeded with a short
speech in which he thanked the electors
for the .confidence they had placed ih
him in the-past and assured them that
he would do everything humanly possible to further their--interests in the
future. - 0 - "
The audience was very enthusiastic
over their candidate." Judging from-
the feeling which prevailed there is no'
doubt as to the result on July 18th.
___Honourable_Ian=--Ma"ckenzie,--Provin-
cial Secretary, was then called upon.
He delivered one of the most convincing orations ever hear in the Boundary. The audience sat spellbound to"
the last word. He dealt with the
Conservative Platform as .enunciated
at the -famous Kamloops Convention,
disecting it plank by plank. When he
finished*there was only three planks
left. After examining..their quality it
was easy to see they would not hold up
much of the burden of British Columbia.
Upon concluding the" audience cheered wildly and insisted upon a vote of
thanks which was moved by Mr. T. M.
Gulley of Greenwood, and was seconded by Mr. G. O'Keefe of Grand Forks.
The National Anthem was then sung
and the crowd dispersed carrying in
their hearts the firm determination to
support the MacLean Government.

HOSPITAL GROUNDS IMPROVED
, When it comes to public spirit this
town is hard to beat. Years ago it was
decided to hold a Fall Fair. For this
purpose $2300.00 was collected. Quite
a sum for a place of this size.'
, The latest call was.for money and
assistance to develop the grounds and
build a fence at the Hospital.
Th"e"following"is_ariist_of those who
put a shoulder to the wheel with a result the grounds around that popular
institution now present a very pleasing
aspect:
W. M. Wilson, team work, 1 day; R.
Forshaw, team work, 1 day; J. Meyer,
team work, 2 days;' T. R. Williams,

to ask for any more.
This work was engineered and handled by Mr. A. Sater, who' has turned
over a complete statement to the Hospital Board. Great credit is coming to
him for the interest he has taken in
this work.

CONSTANCE TALMADGE
IN COMEDY OF VENICE
Costance Talmadge is coming to the
Greenwood Theatre oi Saturday, June
30th in Venus of Venice.
It is a story 'of a hoydenish gyspy
of the waterways whose capacity for
limitless; a madcap feared by police
and citizenry alike, yet charming and
thievery, and mischief is seemingly
lovable withal. And the added complication of an impulsive American artist who attempts to remould her sorry
scheme of things, with a most surprising result.

A COMPARISON-THEN AND NOW
Before your present Board of Directors assumed office your business
was handled this way:
For the year 1916 the estimated revenue was   $ 5,944,015
arid thc estimated expenditure was    $11,301,374
OR A DEFICIT OF OVER FIVE MILLIONS
In 1916 your government bonds were unsaleable, except through
the payment.of large commissions and discounts, in some cases it cost no
less than $14 to borrow $100.   THE PRESENT BOARD HAS NEVER
__^PAIDJJN_E___CENT^COMMISSION^ON���THElSALElOF._YOUR,BONDS_
AND THERE IS KEEN COMPETITION FOR THESE SECURITIES.
Tliere was no Workmens' Compensation Act in effect. Since that
time $25,000,000 has been paid out under this Act in benefits and,assistance to thc unfortunate victims of industrial accidents and diseases.
There was no Mothers' Pension Act. In 1927 this Board paid out
nearly three quarters of a million dollars for the care of 1,240 mothers
and 3,249 children. Thc cost of administration is the lowest on the
continent. ,        : ,       A *
There was no Act providing for the compulsory.'.payment of a
minimum wage to women.   Such an Act is now in force, f:.-.[.
There was no "Hours of Work Act."   Such an Act is now in force.
There was ho government sanatorium for the care of tubercular
persons; ������ .--..    - ���*     -
No Home for Incurables; <>���'.'_���
No School for the deaf and the blind; .
No Workshop for blind adults;   '
No system of rural nursing;
No free clinics for the treatment of various diseases;
No Act governing the adoption of children;
No Act guaranteeing to parents equal rights of guardianship over
their children;
No Old Age Pension legislation.        '
Should not the capitalist, the investor���the man with a "stake" in
the community���support this Board of Directors because:
 His property and his investments are safe,
���Peace prevails in industry, s
 He is assured of a reasonable "show" to carry on,
������Taxation is stabilized and gradually being reduced.
Should not the wage-earner and the average type of citizen support the Board of Directors because of what has been done to
-���-Expand his opportunities,
���Guarantee him a fairreturn for his labors,
���t���Assist him in providing for his family,
���'������Relieve him of his worry in old age. '
Should not thc fathers and the mothers, shareholders in this large
concern, desire to retain the present Board of Directors because of
������The efforts made to improve the social and economic position
of their bread-winners and dependents,
���'���-���The splendid educational facilities placed at their disposal,
���The valuable guidance and assistance afforded in matters
pertaining to health and accidents, -
������The knowledge and experience of the Board itself,
���The CHARACTER of the CHAIRMAN of the BOARD, HON.
J. D. MacLEAN.
 Because of ���
BRITISH COLUMBIA'S PROGRESS
LET US NOW ASK ANOTHER QUESTION:
If we dismiss this present Board of Directors,
who will be the members of the New Board?
NO!    IT IS NOT TIME FOR A CHANGE

OKANAGAN-CARD300 TRAIL
Penticton June 21.���All sections of
the primary highways which form part
of, the Okanagan-Cariboo Trail are
open for traffic, and reports indicate
that throughout the entire length of
this new tourist route the roads are in
better condition than in any previous
year. .���.'   ..:...���
Two sections of the highway were in
danger of- being destroyed by high'
water in Lake Okanagan and Lake
Skaha. These sections were closed for
a few days and traffic was diverted
over higher roads. Repair work was
rushed ahead with every available man
and piece of machinery. This work has
now reached a point where it is no
longer necessary to divert the traffic
and the roads will in a few da'ys.be
even better than they ���; were . before
damaged by the floods. -
With these . two. sections open for
traffic no detours "are necessary in
travelling from Wenatchee, Washington, up through the Okanagan Valley
and by way of the Fraser Canyon
highway to Vancouver.
The Ruling Passion
Golf's a mighty funny game,
I. never got it right;
You buy a ball for ninety cents
Then knock it out of sight.
You hunt around in weeds and thorns
And find it in its den���
And take a club and try to knock
It out of sight again.

GREENWOOD   RIDING
STOCK BREERERS ASSOCIATION
A man was painting mile
signs on telegraph poles along
the railway track. He decided
that the telephone wires, on
brackets beneath the telegraph lines, would be a convenient place to hang his can
of paint. So he fastened two
hooks to his pail, hanging one"
on each of the telephone
wires. The result was a short
circuit, and the Kamloops-
Vernon long-distance telephone line was out of order.
Another example of telephone trouble that could not
bc forseen or guarded
against.. When the cause
was discovered the can was
removed, and thc line returned to normal.

TWENTY years' mining in British Columbia have yielded nearly
800-million dollars.  The last ten years have increased production
by 58.9 per cent.
The value of all Canada's production is $25.70 per citizen, British Columbia's production today, if distributed, would mean $111.96 per person annually! Our mined
and treated tonnage of metalliferous ores reached a record of more than 5-million
tons for 1927.
. The value otLthj^mining_industry-to-the-
"Province is in'the distribution of money in
wages, supplies, transportation services, etc.
And in "this respect, 1927 was a record year!
. The 14,000 employees of the mining industry
were paid wages totalling 23 million dollars ...
or nearly $1,700 each... the highest average for
any Canadian Province.
During the year, distribution of eight million
dollars was made in dividends!
British Columbia mines approximately 40
million dollars worth of copper, zinc and lead,
a year . . . more than the rest of Canada. In
gold and silver,.our production ranks second
... in coal, third; our total annual mining
production today being exceeded only by
Ontario.
Sound legislation, good mining laws and low
fees have encouraged this development and
stimulated growth. Although the provincial
-mining"area"'has only been superficially prospected within the transportation belt, new
fields are developing, new roads and trails
constantly being built.
Chattering drills sink deeper and deeper
into the hills . . .heavy ores rumble through
the concentrators ... fortunes come tumbling
from the treasure chest of British Columbia!
What was once only imagined about our mining
potentialities, is now proven knowledge. Mining
has become oui*J third largest industry...
showing oyer 67 million dollars revenue a
year . . .proof that prosperity flourishes in
British Columbia.
Capital from Eastern Canada, the United
States, Great Britain, France.. .seeks investment. Our great wealth of production, develop- t
ing so steadily during the past ten years, has '
established confidence and aroused keen interest in British Columbia's mining future the
world over.
Read these announcements and understand your province's
progress ... clip them out and send them to friends. If you
desire extra copies of these announcements a note to this
newspaper will bring them. Advertise your Province!
