From present appearances there is  liable to be anywhere from thirty to  forty visiting delegates for the convention sessions, and the billeting  committee has already started work  finding stopping places for the expected delegates.  ~&uyss &&&-"*& Site  Recent announcement that the new-  Peekin theatre in to lie erected on  Canyon road has created an active demand for property in the neighborhood * of the- theatre. Rone & Tim-  mods, who early in the month purchased the four lots between -the  theatre site and R. Walmsley's new  office, have parted company ��������� already  with the two of them adjoining Mr.  Waliii-siiey's, tin: ituy-m- being A. Iti mm-  uel, who Intends erecting a store building on tho property.  A structure that will provide Creston with the very best in the way of a  theatre, along with a commodious and  thoroughly modern auditorium for  the holding of annual meetings and  functions of that sort, is the aim of  F. C. Rodgers in the new Peek iii  theatre at the corner of Canyon street  and Barton Avenue, for which excavation work is now under wa**7* When '  the building is thrown open for tne  public sometime in September, if the  present plans are carried out, it is safe  to say Creston will haye a house of  amusement that will equal, if not  excel, any town in the B.C. interior.*  Plans call for a building 96 x 40 feet  two story and basement.    The first  floor will be the home of the Peekin,  which will be built with the regulation  sloping floor, and will have a seating  capacity of 350.   The floor lay out provides for two 4-foot main aisles, with  two aisles leading off from  them  to  the exits  which open on to  Barton  Ave. on one side and on to a lane next.-  the Embree garage on the other.    Xsn-!**  mediately inside the theatre will be a?4iS  foot foyer,, while at the front a spa.ct-.:  ous orchestra pit is provided. .���������....-*:���������  For the motion   pictures  the new  building will permit of the use.:of a.  curtain 12 x 10 feei. or "two feet bigger  all round than the one at present in ,  use.   For road shows or local dramatic  or concert effort a stage 30 feet wide  by 25 feet deep is ayailable, with com-.,  modious   wings   and   a., roomy'.,back,  stage.   The second story will. no.t; be  carried  over  the  stage ��������� space,  thus  enabling all curtains and scenery used  to be eleyated direct rather than having to be carried off and stored In'the  ������������-?������j^tp������   -#*s������3|Wgt**,'*'Hi4a?>Mi iuciUuts bi������e������  drop ahdfdot1ighfe,"aiiia to ensure the  best of lighting efforts Manager Rodgers is adding storage battery equipment so that the house can be illuminated either from storage or by direct  current.  The new Peekin will have a corner  entrance 12 x 15 feet. There will be a  ticket office 4 x 12 feet, and a manager's office 12 x 17 feet. A representative of the Universal Film Company  was here last week, when an order-  was placed for the needed new equipment, which includes the latest in  show house chairs. The operating  room will be of brick, 12 x 16 feet,  thus providing ample space for. two  picture machines as well as spotlight���������  making ample proyision for operating  room space that Manager Rodgers  feels will lie necessary within the next  three years.  The present engine will be large  enough to handle both the picture and  lighting load, and in the new house  wiii be placed under the stage���������the  engine, a dressing room and the heat  ing plant occupying thc full end of the  basement. The rest of the basement,  approximately 71 x 40 feet, will be fitted up complete for thc holding of  meetings for which the theatre itself  would be too roomy. The structure  will be of frame construction, steam  heated throughout, and equipped with  a modern ventilating plant.  lf construction goes along as expected, and then* are no i-etious delay-saii  installing   the   equipment,   the   n-Jw  NOTICE  Peekin should be ready for hosin^HN  yery early in .September at thelatoM.

B.     &  Cnta  -ES!  mlm Sentiments and Actions  Lt-rt  LILLJ  lit is inevitable as  a. result o  ���������mighty upheaval in the world caused  by the Great War, and the stupendous  ���������euid    extremely    complex    problems  which mu9t be solved in carrying on  the   work   of    re-construction,     that  some misconceptions  of policies and  misunderstandings as. to motives and  actions   will  arise  between    nations;  they even arise within individual nations.    It is likewise inevitable, with  .Europe in the condition to which it  has been brought by war and revolution, and with Great Britain as easily  the    most    powerful   and   financially  ���������sound of thc Old World nations, that  a    great    burden    of    rcsponsibility  ���������should be thrown upon the Government and people c������ the British Isles.  If Britain shirked that responsibility,  no man could tell what further disasters and atrocities would overtake the  world,  and Britain would be  rightly  blamed for neglect of duty.    Britain  ts not shirking its responsibility, but  in its endeavor to do the best in an  almost hopeless and exceedingly difficult situation its motives are all too  frequently misunderstood and its actions misrepresented.  That misconceptions and misunderstandings should arise is understand-  ���������able. because tiie ultimate success of  much of the. work for the world  which Britain, is undertaking precludes making public the various steps  by which these policies are being carried 'out.

Bi-it-  ain would gladly be relieved of the  responsibility if she could, but she  cannot.    She, therefore, "carries on."  Enemies of Great Britain, however,  are not slow in making use of Britain's work for the Avorld to misrepresent thc British people as reaching  out to grab all they can during this  re-construction period, while other  nations are weak and dis-orgauized.  Especially in the United States,���������the  only other nation in the world whose  position is at all comparable to that  of Britain,���������are the enemies of Britain  endeavoring to create a deep-seated  suspicion of British motivesand actions. Britain is represented as militaristic, autocratic, selfish and brutal,  an enemy io all other peoples and  nations.  Recently, the launching of the British battleship, Hood, was used as a  text hv the Hearst ���������osiers to misrepresent Great Britain as threatening  the United States, because no other  navy could even begin to approach in  size and power to the British Navy,  But what are the facts? They were  recently given by Sir Auckland  Geddes, British -ambassador at Washington, in a speech before the Pilgrims' Club of New York. Referring  to a certain, class of United States  publications.    Sir   Auckland    Geddes  r.r,'.A.  ���������*-"*"������������������ *���������"* Sir  "The columns which I read picture  a grasping, greedy England laying  violent hands on anything she can  reach, militaristic in spirit, creating a  navy to dominate the oceans. That is  not the England of fact; that is not  the England that I, who am not English, love and admire. That is not the  spirit which inspires the British Government. The people of England today are strongly anti-militaristic, liberal, democratic, seeking no quart el,  jealous of none, hoping for world  peace and determined to make great  sacrifices, if necessary, to secure it.  "Let us look at a few facts.    First,  the navy.    When the armistice came  we had more than 1,000 ships of various sizes building or finishing. These  were  mostly small  craft,  of course.  But   among   them   were .four* battle  cruisers, of which, one, thc Hood, was  fitted out.    The moment it was clear  that the fighting was over the orders  for ovcr 600 of these ships were cancelled and thc ships themselves were  broken up and dispersed.    Nov.- note,  of_those   600  and   more,   three   were  great   battle   cruisers,   sisters   of   the  Hood, and they were broken tip.   The  Mood  v r.5*  not.    She was   too nearly  finished.      The    cancellations    would  have been more .sweeping had it not  hern   thr.i   3lr>   of   the   vessels   were  (���������('Uii.lf.tinrr    io-f    sen. ���������   These    were  : !i,e.:-.i.iy of tiie tr.i'.vlcr or drifting type.  r   '..i.'Vf* f.r.ishcd as fishing boats,  dealt with, and he asked whether this  looked like militarism, or a desire to  dominate the seven seas?    "It. is no  business of mine," he added, "to compare these facts with the corresponding actions of any other nation, hut  I' ask you, who know yourselves  to  be  non-militarist,    to  contrast  them  with your owiftiational acis if you are  tempted to think England militarist."  England today is a different England from what she was before the  war.   During it, she, in common with  the other British peoples, saw a great  light.    At home they are determined  to- mould  and  are  rapidly moulding  their social organization Jto secure certain clearly defined ends, the first and  greatest of which is such adjustment  between capital and labor as will give  equal opportunities of health and education and advancement to rich and  poor, high and low.   The whole country is seething with new mental" and  spiritual life, and, in spite of all difficulties, believing that their feet are  on the path to the better ordering of  human affairs, the British people intend to go steadily forward to secure  peace and disarmament in Europe.  If the United States had decided  ere this to take its place in the Leasjue  of Nations and assume its full share  of the responsibility for the rehabilitation of the world and the preservation of peace, as Great Britain has  done, perhaps there. would be less  likelihood of Britain's motives being  misunderstood. Ae Sir Auckland  Geddes said in concluding his speech  at New York: "If you decide that  you cannot help, please try to understand what we are attempting to do  and 'how great our burden is."  JOY AND GLADNESS  FOR THE CHILDREN  Headed For  World Leadership  cmcago  the  Some  Has  of  Every child���������whether it be poor or  rich is entitled to joy and gladness.  Health is the birthright of all and  there is absolutely no doubt that the  healthy baby is a happy baby. It is  the baby's nature to be happy���������not  cross. Only the sickly baby is cross  The well child is a joy to the home  ���������it is a"4aughing, gurgling, happy  little piece of humanity which drives  dull care from the household. The  sickly baby is the opposite -��������� he is  cross and peevish; cries a great deal  and is a source of -constant worry to  the mother. But mothers there is no  need of your little ones being sickly.  Regulate the baby's bowels and  sweeten" his stomach with a gentle  but thorough laxative and baby will  soon be well -and happy again. Thousands of mothers have proved this  through their use of Baby's Own  Tablets ��������� there is a smile in every  dose of the Tablets. Give them to  your baby and make him happy.

Chivalry in Excelsis  The Maoris, now showing themselves, not for the first time, the  loyalest of subjects, once proved the  most chivalrous of enemies.

They were sportsmen  of the best kind.

In the  house Sir Henry Drayton, minister of  finance, indicated some changes he  intends to propose. In brief they  are:  (a) Boots and essential articles of  clothing tp be taxed 15 percent dn the  excess, instead of ten percent on the  total selling price.  (h) Expensive furniture, walking  sticks and expensive china to be subject to luxury tax. Thcy were not  previously included.  ,������c) Exemption limit increased on  1 furs, coats, caps, muffs, neckpieces,  robes and rugs.  (d) modifications in the tax of  sporting goods, velveteens, lace and  velvets, braid, ribbons and carpets.  Sir Henry" did not give formal notice of his proposed amendments.

"Nothing said tonight," he  declared, "will alter the present law  until the resolutions have passed the  house.**  Sir Henry suggested that the tax  on boots, shoes, pumps and slippers  might be raised from terr to' fifteen  percent on all those costing over $9,  the tax to bc figured on thc excess  over $9, instead of the total cost of  the articles.  Sir Henry submitted further ara-  -tudment in regard to essential articles  of clothing. Instead of ten percent  on the full cost, the tax on the following articles, if present suggestions  are adopted, will now be fifteen percent on the excess.  Trousers sold separately from suits,  in excess of $12 per pair; coats, men's  and boy's, sold separately from suits  (not including leather coa*fcs*lin.ed with  ���������sheepskin), in excess of $25 each.  Cloth  overcoats,  men's  and  boy's,  women's and misses', in excess of $50  each.  Waistcoats, men's, sold separately  from suits, in excess of $5 each.  Suits (except silk), in excess of $60  each. '  Coats, women's and misses' sold  separately from suits (except silk) iu  excess of $35 each.  The further stipulation is- made  that on articles of clothing, the selling price of material and the cost of  manufacture, when sold separately,  are to be combined for determining  the selling price.  No change, Sir Henry added, was  proposed on the tax on articles which  might be regarded as an extravagance  entirely within the control of the purchaser.  Sir Hcnr}*- proceeded that he proposed to include walking sticks as  subject to the luxury tax.

C. Stead, director  of publicity of the"department of immigration and colonization, Ottawa.  He spoke on "Immigration and the  National Debt."  Mr. Stead opened his remarks with  a statement that the. appeal of his  subject, "Immigration and the National d-ebt," was not strong, and that immigration should not be approached  from the point of view of paying  debts. "If the emigrant enters this  country he naturally assumes his  share of the national debt, but at  the same time he also sheds his responsibility to the country which he  leaves."  Mr. Stead explained that he did  not come to the congress commissioned by the minister in Ottawa as  regards anything that he might  say, but that he was going to express  his own opinions and did not think  any the less of them because thcy  were his own.  "Population will not pay the national debt,' he declared. "Greater production is the only means. It is an  unfortunate fact that under the present high rate of living there is too  great a laxity to look back and examine the cause for such a rate. We are  living in an age of invention which  has entered into our whole structure,  and fabric to a wonderful extent."  Mr. Stead then pointed out that by  means of the waterways, railroads  and agricultural machinery, one man  has been enabled to do the work of  a thousand since 186Q* and that as a  result of this great advancement, population began to centralize in thc cities.  Markets for the large amount of  goods then produced were needed.  Advertising came into being and the  element of personal sal-cSinanSiiip was  introduced. Advertisements have a  peculiar psychological effect underlying them that is not considered. It  is  to  induce  discontent.

To make us discontented with what  we have got arrd so we go and purchase sometiiing Cise.  Yet the idea is not wrong. The  most hopeless man in the world ia  the man who lacks discontent. So  long as discontent is well organized  it is a valuable asset to the community. It is like steam in a boiler. As  long as it is under control it haa  powerful potentialities, but it is also  likely to get out of control and blow  up the boiler.  Today the cities produce everything  except foodstuffs. How is that coincident with the development of tho  agricultural machinery and the opening up of great tracts of fertile land?  By these means so far we have been  able to keep up with thc demand,  but there comes a point where it must  stop.  Pointing out the great strides made  in production at the outset of tho  war, Mr. Stead -said: "With the outbreak of hostilities it was evident  at once that men were valueless without rifles and artillery, cartridges* and  shells. Aside from one rifle factory,  Canada was practically without plants  for the manufacture of military supplies, and the total value of munitions shipped from the Dominion  during the first five months of the  war was only $28,000. By that time  Canadians realized the tremendous  seriousness of the struggle in -which  t*V������ ������������*\7 Txr^m f.t-icrrxcre.r\ Tli-rP-ainor-a -artirt   .,      .*v ~..0c-0 .         ��������� ---,     .. ������������������  could see nothing more than a six  months' war, were disillusionized, and  every lathe that could turn a shell  was hurriedly adapted to munition  work. In 1915 Canada exported $57,-  000,000 worth of munitions and materials for war purposes.

Mr. Law also said that if the United  States refused the mandate for Armenia it was not likely that GreatvBrit-  ain would accept it.  The housc was informed that Gen.

Haybs, Editor and Owner,  CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, JULY  2  W  If you want to vote at the next  provincial election or on the liquor  plebiscite, it is necessary that you  register.  At the present time there is no  such thing as voters' list. It has  been scrapped. A small army of  workers is busy compiling a new  one.from A straight through to Z.  You may have voted at the last  election, but its a safe bet you will  not vote at the coming election if  you fail to . register. The closing  date is July 15. Don't wait till  then, however, but get busy and  have your name put in the list  now, and avoid the rush in the  closing days.  If you are a Canadian, a British  subject, or a naturalized Canadian,  21"years of age, resident in B.C. for  six months, you have a legal righj.  to vote.  Women have equal right with  meh ih this particular.  Kemernbcr if .you don't register  you' don't vote. There is no use  asking the deputies if your name is  "on the list." There is no list,  your name is not on it.  "Don't araue."    Re-sisteiv  all over the west.

Crowd Celebrated  Get-Together Day  The biggest crowd and the best day's  sport eyer proyided is*the quite unanimous verdict of all who attended the  Get-Together Day celebration at Creston on Friday. The weatherman was  on his best behaviour, proyiding a day  which, while slightly threatening in  the morning, cleared off beautifully  early in-the afternoon, enabling those  in charge to run off all the eyents  under ideal conditions, and at the  same time creating a healthy demand  for the various lines of x-efreshments  that were on sale in the main building  at the fair grounds, where the yarious  events were pulled off.  Even for the morning features there  was an exceptionally good turnout  and those in attendance Were furnished a decidedly interesting junior baseball match between a team from the  Boy Scouts and the public school nine.  After the first three inings the play  was decidedly even, but in the early  stages of the game the school team  had piled up a comfortable lead and  won out by a margin of 13-8, with Joe  Goodman doing the umpiring. Following the ball game there was quite  a good line of races, etc., for the child,  ren, the juyeniles proyidir*g 'a large  list of en tines for several events.  The opening feature of the afternoon doings was the decorated auto  parade, in which first prize was awarded W. B. Embree. whose artistic effort  FULMER & EARL  CRESTON  handily surpassed any of the others in  the rather small field of contestants.  Creston and Porthiil hooked up in  the first of the two baseball contests  and certainly proyided an article of  ball that kept the crowd on edge right  from the start. Porthiil lumped into  a comfortable lead in the first two  innings, and it was not until the end  of the fifth that Creston was able to  get on even terms with them. At the  end of the sixth Porthiil was again in  front but in the seyenth Creston  managed to accumulate sufficient tallies to win by a margin of 10-9. On  the whole Porthiil outclassed the  locals at the fielding end of the game,  but they were shy on ability to hit  opportunely. In the second game  Creston had things somewhat easier,  disposing of the Wynndel nine by a  score of 15-8. A matter of $80 was  distributed amongst the baseball  teams, a purse of $40 being provided  feer each game, making Creston team's  winnings for the day $50, and $15,to  each of the losing aggregations.  Owing to there being less than an  hour in between the two ball games  the crowd wa.s pretty well divided in  watching the last contest and the  pulling off of the athletics which were  staged in front of the grand stand and  on the whole were decidedly interest.  ing. A goocf list of entries was in  evidence for the jumping contests, and  considering the shape the track was in  the contestants made very creditable  showings. Great interest was manifest in the Indian wrestling on horse  back in which there were four bouts  put on under the supervision of Andrew, and in which Leo well deserved  the first prize, having successsully  disposed of three opponents in fine  style, with second money going to  Adrian. The winners of the other  events were as follows:  Egg and spoon race���������Ivan  Staples,  A. D. Pochin.  Potato   race���������Herb   Manuel,   Dean  Pears.  100 yards run���������B. Law, F.

Spencer, 26 ft.  p Running   jump���������E. Law,  5 ft.;  A.  Spencer, 4 ft. 10 in.  An added feature was the relay  race, six men a side in which the contest was between teams from the  Porthiil section and half a dozen local  Indians. Xhe whites won handily, the  Winning squad being Messrs. Law,  Sherwood, Okey, Luce, Peterson and  W, Smith.  The evening feature was the horse  races, which were run on Canyon  road, from Crawford's hill to the  Embree garage. There was a field of  three for each event, with the Peterson horse taking the free foa ail, with  Hay Louie second. . In the pony race  Harry Smith got home in front in  both heats, second money going to  Andrew Alex.  The crowd on the ground during the  afternoon must have easily been in  the neighborhood of 700, with a big  showing of children ' everywhere.  Beattie-Oatway. Ltd., had the refreshment privilege in conjunction with  the Presbyterian Ladies' Aid; and  both had a very busy afternoon of it.  The gate receipts were in the neighborhood of $80, Misses Louise and  Helen Morgan and Louise Bevan  handling the admission tag selling to  splendid advantage.  . In addition to providing an c*xcellent  day's sport -i feature to the affair was  that everything went off without a  hitch anywhere, and for this excellent  management a word of commendation  is due Messrs. G. Johnson, Major Mallandaine, C. B. Garland, C. W. Allen,  S. G- Foreman, R. S. Bevan and R. B.  Staples, the general committee who  had the affair in hand, After paying  all expenses the finance committee  expect to have a surplus of at lea-^t  $50, the di-position of which will be  decided at a meeting of the committee  to be held next week.  ������������������BI  _x~*1.  <m^m,mL9 4  m <7~tP^-H f0t"> jrm>pm.-mx.A~ZtC**?  e  L A Z>  i     5 U ivhviiiR  *u������;   <o������ ir5^r^, jr^~0^~m~0r%m.

The first is to" find the right  place in which to make thc garden.  It should be in a locality -where the  sun will shine on it for at least five  hours each bright day. It should  not be where the soil is ao thin and  the rocks so near the surface that the  garden will burn out during the summer. It should not be under or near  large trees; the trees will not only  keep the sun off, but will dra-w all  the moisture and plant food from the  soil. Nor must the garden be in a  spot that gets flooded.  X? *      CLrx0.rx  &-*->\j~   ueiuCo  Cr.-.  XSJX  t 0V 4-i  rxXv i lHi**ar������  ^ixxxxyxx \rxm.

Earnest  Police  Clarivj  Officer, 338 King St,  ������at., writes:  "For three years I suffered  from nervousness and sleeplessness. I believe my condition was brought about by  overwork. I had frequent  headaches, neuralgic pains and  twitching of nerves and  mwicles. I had indigestion,  was short of breath aiid easily  tired. I commenced a treatment of Dr. Chase's Nervo  Food, and seven boxes of this  medicine cured me of all my  symptoms. I am now feeling  one hundred per cent, better  than I was, and have to thank  Br.

Thc total amount of assets is now  in excess of 197 million dollars, being  an increase of nearly 31 million dollars for the year. About $2,000,000  of this increase is not accompanied  by any increase of liabilities to the  public, being due to the issue of $1,-  400,000 of capital stock, now fully paid  up, and to the increase of the Rest  Fund by $700,000 of premium on the  new stock, and $700,000 out of profits.  The chief cause of the increase in the  volume of business is the growth of  deposits which are now over 163 mU-  lion dollars, and have increased during the year almost $25,000,000.  Against its total public liabilities of  just under 180 million dollars, the  Bank holds quick assets amounting  to ovcr seventy-two and a half million dollars, or a ratio of nearly 40.81  percent.  In spite of the strength of its liquid  position, the Bank is doing an immense amount of work for the assistance of current business in Canada,  as is shown in thc current loans and  discounts in the Dominion, which now  total $113,198,913.  Net profits for thc year were the  greatest in the history of the Bank,  amounting to $1,686,156, an increase  of $300,000 ovcr the previous year.  A bonus of 1 percent, was added to  the regular 12 percent, dividend, so  that the total distribution to the  shareholders amounted to $1,060,286,  while $700,00d was added to the Rest  Fund, and $100,000 was written off  Premises Account, the balance carried  forward being $260,77-1.  Thc average amount of stock ranking for dividend during the year was  about $9,200,000, -so that the average  earnings were at the rate of about  20.-18 percent, but the capital employed in producing these earnings was  not only the paid-up stock, but also  thc corresponding amount of Rest  Fund, which is similarly the property  of tlie shareholders.  Thc entire statement reflects thc  highest credit upon the directors,  headed by Sir II. Montagu Allan, and  thc Oner?.1 M.,i;'<r*;i*-r. Mr. D. C. Mac-  arow.  Suffer From Overtaxed Nennea and  -Often a Complete Breakdown  Thousands   of   earnest,  intelligent  ?[oung women who earn their live-  ihood away from home, in the school  room, in public offices, and in large  business establishments, are silent,  suffering victims of over-taxed nerves  and deficiency of strength. - Weak,  breathless and nervous, they work  against time, with, never a rest when  headaches and backaches may every  hour seem like a day. Little wonder  their cheeks lose the glow of health  and grow pale and thin; their eyes  are dull and shrunken and beauty  slowly but surely fades. Business  women and girls because of their  work and worry, look older than their  years. What they need is the frequent help of a, true, strengthening  remedy to carry them through tlic  day. Dr. Williams Pink Pills are like  actual food to the starved nerves and  tired brain of the business girl. By  making rich, red blood they supply  just the kind of help girls need to  preserve their health and energy, and  their good looks. Dr. Williams Pink  Pills bring bright eyes, rosy cheeks,  high spirits and thus make the day's  duties lighter.  Miss  Mary H.  Hunt-says: "Many  people -think of the life of a school  teacher as one of comparative ease,  with short hours and holidays plentiful.    But the reverse   is  the   case.  When one has to stand day after day  year in and year out, with tlie worries  great and small, from handling children, it begins to tell upon even the  strongest, and especially   upon    the  nerves.    I had been  teaching about  five  years  and was  then located  at  Springfield, Ont., when I found I was  far frorq, having the vitality I started  out with.    Before my term was out  I had a complete nervous breakdown.  I tried doctor's medicine and it helped, but only for a while.   I then tried  osteopathic treatment   but   with   no  better results.   I suffered from loss of  appetite,    slept poorly, was nervous  and troubled with severe headaches.  Holidays came and I tried a change  of schools, but got into a harder place  where I had over fifty pupils under  my care.    There were days when it  seemed impossible for me to carry on  my work-    At this  stage, my sister,  who had also been a teacher, strongly  advised me to try Dr. Williams Pink  Pills.    I took the advice, and by the  time I had finished my second box,  I felt that the pills were helping me,  I was ou my ninth box when I decided there was no necessity for continuing the treatment, as I had never  felt   better,   and   had   gained   twelve  pounds in weight.   Dr. Williams Pink  Pills with plenty of fresh air, worked  wonders in my case and I should ad  Amalgamation May Result in Entry  Into Politics  Formation of a United Farmers'  body in British Columbia is assured  as the result of the adoption of a  resolution ai &c joint convention at  Kelowna of the farmers' institutes and  United Farmers, adopting tbe constitution as revised by the joint committee and pledging each member to  make the amalgamation a success.
