ENDERBY. B. C, MAY 18. 1904.
Pri s, $2 a Yeak
Old as Enderby is; unlimited
as are Its resources; picturesque
as Is its location, and fortunate
as it is In having such a delightful climate, yet with all this the
town Is barely known outside of
.'.hat is recognized as the Oka
nagan Valley. And even here
where II Is known, Its Importance has not been recognized,
li, Indeed, appreciated. Until
a few months ago the name of
Enderby was scarcely spoken
fifty miles away from home.
Today It Is heralded over the
Kooienays. whispered at the
coast cities, and as far away as
old Ontario, and In Manitoba
and the Territories 11 Is synonymous with that ot the Promised Land.
Public attention Is drawn to
the Okanagan this year as It
was never before, and It Is only
natural that Enderby. the first
town on the Sicamous branch
after leaving the main line,
should receive the attention It
Is. and that this should be the
elective point of people with
capital   seeking   Investment.
Scarcely & day passes without the train bringing In home-
seekers (rom the Kooienays.
the Territories or farther east.
Having tired of the severe winters and the business uncertainties elsewhere, they come
here to find belter climatic conditions, better crop and market
conditions: where there is no
uncertainly and no failure.
As a result of this Influx of
i pie and ipltal, the Qkans
gan Valley In general, and Enderby and vicinity In particular,
are experiencing such a revival
as was never known before.
Land that hitherto has been
looked upon as valueless. Is being bought up and cleared, and
the large farms that have been
only Indifferently worked are
being cut up into smaller tracts
and sold to men who will bring
ihem to a higher state of cultivation. All this means Increased business for the merchants of the Valley, the railroad, and everybody connected
in any way with the business ol
the community. It means increased output. In all lines of
farm produce: fruits, cereals,
vegetables and live stock, the
increase will soon be enormous.
And the Incoming of men and
money continues. Realizing
what this means, the business,
men of the Valley, particularly
of Enderby. are enlarging their
store capacity and adding to
their slocks such lines as will
bring them up to lhe highest
standard, Large store buildings
are being erected, old ones torn
down and remodled. and accommodation provided for every
branch of business. Residences
also are going up In all directions, wherever you drive in
ihe Valley a new farm house
marks the home of a new-comer.
In Enderby. despite the large
number of dwellings that have
been built, there is still a scar
city, and the house hunt in keen

Umber Mill Cutting.
The lumber Industry has In
the past been an Important asset to Enderby, but nothing like
what It will be in the future.
The Okanagan Lumber Co.,
Ltd., has In Its location here an
Ideal mlllslte. and. under the
conservative management of'
F.H.Hale. M. P.. It has re-1
cently Installed a mill of 75.000
dally capacity. The mill is
equipped with the latest Improved actuating machinery,
handsaw, etc. Three boilers
are required to furnish the
steam (or the engines that'
operate the acres of machinery.
The mill will cut 10 million feet
per year. It has a year's sup-
ply of logs on hand, and started
sawing today .employing SO men.
The members of the Okana
gan Lumber Co,, are: F. H.
Hale. M P.. Ceo. McCormlck.
M. P..ofOrellla.Ont..Geo.W.
Fowler. M. P.. of Sesslr. N. B..
W. R. Beattle. ex-M. P.. of
Arrowhead, and Wm. Irwin, of
Peterborough. W. H. McCormlck Is secretary-treasurer
of the company.
In addition to erecting and
installing this large mill, the
company has put up a handsome office building, and has
erected, and is preparing to
erect, several residences. It
has bought liberally of town
property, and Manager Hale has
the stone on the ground for the
foundation of a beautiful home
for himself.
The company has In contemplation the Installing ofdyna
moesfor electric lighting purposes with a view to lighting the
Hotel Improvements.

olher words, afier years of quiet
peaceful walling, the flood has
come, and Webb, as he Is
familiarly known. Is reaping a
bountiful harvest. Extensive
improvements are being made
to the Interior of the house, and
the foundation Is laid for a
90x40 annex, to be erected as
soon as the lumber can be had

sawmill at Mara, and with Robt.
Mowat as co owner, a company
lebe known as lhe Rcthcsay

has a capacity o! 20.000 feet a
day. Mr Ruttan Will re

The only way to b-Jild up a
town is by every man  •
man in It building up
and herB-lf by assisting tobuiid
up the institutions in It, public
and private. Standing shoulder
to shoulder, everybody boosting
and willing to be boosted: speaking good of the town and everything produced In the town;
minimizing our neighbor's
weak points and magnifying his
strong, speaking good, doing
good—that's what does the
trick. And, then, to this, add
the practical: Buy the home
Won't Cive Special.
The celebration committee
have tried for two weeks to Induce the railway company to
run a special train from Vernon
to Enderby on May 24th. offering the company $150 for the
trip. The company has finally
said no, and there Is disappointment in our corner of Eden.
Enderby has just cause to feel
disappointed, if not Indignant.
A good program of sports has
been prepared, and every effort
is to be made to give to visitors
from sister towns a pleasant
day. It is galling to be tied
down and thus meanly treated
by a transportation company
that has made the people of the
Valley pay so dearly for the
convenience of quick travel—
and the novelty of being cinched.

A whole day of pleasure, and
an evening of dancing, is assured to all who come to Enderby nexi Tuesday. The committee having charge of the arrangements have been untiring
In their efforts, and have pre
pared a programme of sports
that will furnish fun for everybody. It Is a great disappointment to the committee not to
be able to provide a special
train, but this Is a matter that
our obliging railway officials
must answer' for. The convenience of the public Is a matter of great concern to them.
They do not sleep nights thinking about it.
