IX  V  () FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  fl   D  N matters of common sense legal advice  is a pig in a poke. For a brilliant legal  light to come before the city of Enderby  and tell us that any private corporation can  over-ride the common law of ownership, is  quite absurd. If you owned a piece of  property, you would not have to get legal  advice before knowing that you had the  right to forbid anyone trespassing upon it.  The streets of Enderby are city property.  Thev can be used for the erection of tele-  phone poles or any other like purpose only  by consent of the citizens. When a solicitor for a private corporation tells us his  company can ride rough-shod over the city's  corporate rights on his biased construction  of a clause in a private act, he is talking-  through his bonnet. Other companies have  tried 5ig_samething against other cities,.,  and the citizens have cut down their poles  and filled the holes as fast as they were  dug. And the courts always have sustained the citizens.  The citizens of Enderby do not wish to  make trouble for the Okanagan Telephone  Company. They want to see the system  installed here, and by the proposed agreement submitted by the City Council that  company is given a 20-year franchise to  operate in Enderby. The city has imposed  some restrictions, necessary to guard the  city's rights and to prevent a monopoly.  The company, through its solicitor, verbally  agreed to these conditions, but refused to  accept them when finally drafted, and has  signified its intention of coming into Enderby unrestricted.  At the public meeting held Monday evening the citizens stood pat on the agree  ment, and if the company is to do business  here it will have to be on conditions ratified  by the ratepayers.  The city council desires to do things  legally or not at all, and when common  municipal law reads as clearly as Sec. 64,  of the Revised Statutes of British Columbia,  they do not feel called upon to accept the  unsupported opinion of the telephone com-  | pany's solicitor as to the city's rights and  J privileges:  Sec. 64. Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, a Municipal Council shall not have the  power to grant to any person or corporation any  particular privilege or immunity or exemption  from the ordinary jurisdiction of the corporation,  or to grant any charter bestowing a right, franchise, or privilege, or give any bonus or exemption from any tax, rate, or rent, or remit any tax  or rate levied or rent chargeable unless the same  is embodied in a by-law which, before the final  passage thereof, has been submitted to the electors of the municipality who are entitled to vote  upon a by-law to contract a debt, and which has  received the assent of not less than three-fifths in  number of the electors who shall vote upon such  by-law. Any such by-law which has not received  the assent of the electors as aforesaid shall not be  valid.  The opinion of the company's solicitor in  this matter is quite different from the  statute. He says: "Itis only necessary for  the council to pass a by-law authorizing  the carrying on ,of__such business:_itis.not  necessary to submit the matter to the ratepayers." Later, Mr. Billings has said in  his letter to the council that it isn't necessary even for a by-law by the council authorizing the carrying on of such business,  and intimates that the company can ride  all over the city. But Mr. Billings doesn't  know Enderby citizens. They want peace,  but not at the cost of the city's rights.  CXZxO  ENDERBY has every advantage that  nature can give for being the garden  spot of the Okanagan. Here river,  prairie and hills meet, and for climate it is  unsurpassed. What is needed is for the  citizens to help nature. Can't we get up a  street tree planting campaign this Fall?  Look at our school grounds and recreation  grounds! They are as barren of trees and  foliage "as the desert. w  WALKER'S WEEKLY,  zxx.  XX  xx_  NEWS IN AND ABOUT THE TOWN AND DISTRICT  xx_  _:  rzxzz  Ira C.

The final shoot  was held last Wednesday.    A. E.  Taylor won the button for the  second time.  The marriage . of A. Dock-  steader and Miss Myrtle Duncan  was celebrated at the home of  the bride yesterday   afternoon.  A host of Enderby friends were  present on the happy occasion  and enjoyed the dance given at  the home in the evening.  Considering that this is the  first season the Enderby  Fruit & Produce Exchange has  been in existence, the manner of  handling the produce is exceptionally satisfactory to the growers, and gives promise of big  things as the industry grows.  J. Bogart brought us in some  splendid samples of Yellow Tran-  sparents last week from his home  trees, near Enderby.    They were  perfect in shape, color and flavor  and averaged half a pound in  weight. A jar of them was preserved for exhibition purposes.  F. L. Buckley left for Revel-  stoke Wednesday afternoon to be  present at the meeting of the  Mountain Lumberman's Association. A meeting of the Shuswap  & Thompson River Boom Co., in  which Mr. Buckley is interested,  will also be held. A. R. Rogers  will attend these meetings, coming thence to Enderby.  A number of hobos walked into  town Monday and Tuesday, and  Ival lret^biit^agaiii^Wedne sdayr  Some of them broke into a vacant  house of Robt.

Mr. Buckley secured subscriptions amounting to $1,800 from  Enderby citizens to bring the  telephone into Enderby, which is  sufficient to give the lie to the  statement that Enderby does not  want the telephone. But Enderby wants it right.  ENDERBY'S  FURNITURE   STORE  Furniture  Carpets  Rugs  Linoleums  Window Shades  Curtain Poles  &.

In explanatiorr of  the objects of the meeting the  mayor recited the difficulties the  Council had encountered in trying  to arrive at an agreement with  the   Okanagan   Telephone   Co.,  whereby the company could operate in Fnderby,  and at the same  time protect the city's interests.  The difficulties arose out of the  difference of opinion as to the  reading of the law.     The company's   solicitor   endeavored   to  make the council believe that his  company could come in without  any agreement being ratified by  the rate payers, but the council  could not read Sec. 64 of the revised statutes of B. C. in that  way. A deadlock had been  reached, and the company now  proposed entering the city without regard to the city's wishes.  He said the company's solicitor  came to Enderby   last  week to settle the matters  in   dispute, and he  believed   a t  the time ah  amicable settlement had  been reached  but a letter  had been received   from  Mr.   Billings  sayingthatat  a meeting of  the directors  of the company, it was  decided that  the company  could not accept the conditions of the  lal;f^eement, " which"" were" con -  sidered entirely unreasonable.  The agreement was read, also  Sec. 64, and the section in the  company's private bill, on the  strength jc^  proposed to enter the city without  permission or authorization. The  matter was here opened for discussion, the" mayor stating that  the council had been advised by  its solicitor that any agreement  to be made valid must be ratified  by the rate payers.  W.Allan Dobson opened the  discussion. He favored the company being allowed to come in.

THE  INTERNATIONAL SERIES.  Text of the Lesson, 1 Sam. xxvi, 17-25.  Memory Verse, 21���������������������������Golden Text,Luke  vi, 27���������������������������Commentary Prepared by Rev.  D. M. Stearns.  [Copyright, 1903, by American Press Association.]  David   is   still   fleeing   for   his   life  from Saul, for Saul sought him every  day and said, "If he be in the land I  will search him out throughout all the  thousands of Judah" (xxiii, 14, 23), but  God delivered him  not into his hand.  On   one   occasion   Saul   and   his   men  compassed  David  and his  men  round  about -to  take  them,  but just then  a  messenger came to Saul saying, "Haste  thee and come, for the Philistines have  invaded   the   land,"   so  Saul   returned  from   pursuing   David   (xxiii,   2G,   27).  After the parting of David and Jonathan, as recorded in last week's lesson,  there followed  that incident to which  our Lord referred in Matt, xii, 3, when  lie   said.   "Have   ye. not   read   what  David did when  he was an hungered,  and they that were with him?"   These  lessons were therefore a familiar portions <> our Lord, as were all the Scriptures, which lie loved to unfold to His  disciples.    Thai  day at Nob the devil  was on hand in the person of Doeg the  Ldomite. Saul's chief herdman, and he  became   the   murderer   of   eighty-live  priests, besides other men and women  and children, by the command of Saul  ,(xxii...._iS���������������������������_.lO) Abjathar,   one  of  the  priests, escaped and tied to David ancf  told him the sad tale, leading David  iO feel that he was guilty of the death  of all those people. It was then that  David uttered those memorable words  to Abiathar, "Abide thou with me;  fear not, for he that seeketh my life  seeketh thy life, but with mo thou  shall be in safeguard" (xxii, 23).  When we think of the slaughter of  these priests of the Lord, the massacre  of the babes at Rethlehem and the  martyrs in ail ages, we are simply  dumb, yet tempted to ask, Where is  the love of.Ciod in ail this? Then we  remember that He said to His disciples. "Fear not them which kill the  body, but are not able to kill the soul"  (Matt, x, 28), and He has also taught  us that "to die Is gain/' so that some  "ilny we shall see that all this work of  the devil brought no real harm to these j  martyred ones, but only gain. We  cannot see it now, but we can believe  it. and believing is seeing���������������������������faith is the  eye of the soul The story of today's  lesson does not tell us of the first time  that  David had Saul in his oowcr.   See  in chapter xxiv how completely David  had him and how easily he might have  disposed of him, but he refrained, saying,   "I   will   not put forth  my  hand  against my lord, for He is the Lord's  anointed"  (xxiv.  10).    He simply  cut  off the skirt of Saul's robe privily that  he might afterward show him how he  had him in his power and if possible  make him ashamed of himself and of  his folly.   He succeeded for a time and  in  some   measure,  as   we   learn   from  Saul's words in the end of that chapter.    But, as we said in a previous lesson,   no reliance can  be  placed  upon  such  a   man   possessed  with  such  an  evil spirit, and -now- he is again -pursuing' him    with   3,00*   chosen    men  (xxvi,  1,' 2), and again God puts Saul  in David's power and causes a deep  sleep to come upon Saul and his men  .while David and Abishai (David's sister's son) came by night and took the  spear  and   the  cruse  of   water   from  Saul's bolster, and none of Saul's men  saw  it  nor  knew  it  nor awaked  because of that deep sleep from the Lord.  It  must  have been a  sleep from  the  Lord  which,  held  the guard to whom  Peter  was chained  that  night of  his  deliverance by the angel (Acts xii, 0).  When Abishai urged David to take advantage of his opportunity and let him  smite Saul to the earth, promising that  one thrust would do the work, David  again   refused    to   stretch   forth   his  hand against the Lord's anointed, saying, "As the Lord liveth, the Lord shall  smite  him,  or  his day  shall  come to  die, or he shall descend into battle and  perish"   (verse   10>.     He   would  his enemy wholly to God and 1-  hands off.    It is possible for us to commit our  way  and  our  works and  all  "pcople' fimrrlimn  gat I  ish.  good and beautiful, and her fool-  drunken husband See her kind  words of encouragement to David  ,(verses/ 2S-81) and note particularly  these: "The soul of my Lord shall be  .bound ia the bundle of life with the  Lord thy God."

Natural colored linen,  navy and Copenhagen   blue and  the many pretty little checks and stripes are more practical and can be made  very attractive with a little trimming or hand work.  The design  shown  in  the  accompanying illustration  is one of  the  most  popular jumper dresses of the season.   It has applied neck and arm hole hands  that offer opportunity for pretty combinations of a contrasting color, hand  embroidery or pipings. A dull blue  chambray would be  pretty made alter  this model, trimmed  with the blue and  white wash braid  so much used tins  season. Narrow  tucks stitched only  a few inches and  then allowed to fly  give the blouse a  pretty, full effect so  becoming to the  girlish figure.  For warm weather it would be effective of any sheer  white material trimmed with bands of  light blue or pink.  This touch of color  is very noticeable  on all white garments tin's season.  The guiinpe can be  of any thin white  goods, ornamented  with a dainty design in hand embroidery or trim-  nied^wif -liHa-ce^ainh^  fine tucks.  A stylish appearance is obtained  w h e n plaid or  checked materials  are cut on the cross-  grain of the goods.  Last s u m in e r ' s  frocks can be freshened and lengthened by using trimming bands of a  f) relty contrasting  color on   the  waist  and an outside hem of the same material on the bottom of the skirt. A turquoise blue linen is very dainty with trimming bands of the same ornamented  'with white soutache-braid applied in a flowing scroll design. The skirt can  be trimmed to correspond or left perfectly plain  This Japanese jumper dress closes in the back with guiinpe In long or three-  iquarror sleeves .

F. L. Buckley believed we  should make every effort to get  the telephone, and keep harmony  with the company. He thought  the company could come in on  its private bill, and without permission from the city.  H. W. Wright said the company could come and was coming  right into the heart of the city  on private property.  A. E. Taylor believed the company had the law on its side and  did not see how it could be prevented from entering the city if  it concluded to do so.  H. M. Walker believed that it  was time to talk Enderby interests. He had seen how hard the  city council had endeavored to  meet the company's wishes, and  had seen them give point after  point to the company, until they  had given everything but the  city's rights, and he believed the  citizens should back up the council, in standing pat-on the agreement.  The Mayor asked the meeting  if the conditions of the agreement were deemed unreasonable.  There was not an objection raised  H. W. Harvey moved that the  council get further legal advice  in the matter.    Carried.  J. L. Ruttan said he believed  the city should not give any company ������������������������������������������������������unrestricted- rights. He  cited Fernie as an example. He  was there when the Bell Telephone company attempted to run  into Fernie on a private act similar to that of the Okanagan Telephone Company, and the city  officials cut down their poles and  filled the holes as fast as the  company dug them. And the city  won out. Then it turned around  and gave another company unrestricted franchise. This enabled the company to keep out all  private lines, and worked a hard  ship on the lumber companies  operating in the vicinity of that  city.  Moved by Mr., Dobson that this  meeting approves of the council  putting the question to the vote  of the people at the expense of  the city.    No second.  It being intimated that the objectionable clause in the agreement was one that might be overcome, it was moved by Mr. Matthews, seconded by W.J.Wheeler  that this meeting requests Mr.  Bell and Mr. Buckley to interview  Mr. Billings and endeavor to arrive at an understanding. The  motion carried.  H.M.Walker moved the following resolution, which was seconded by A. L. Matthews, and  adopted as read:  Whereas, the Okanagan Telephone Company has refused to  accept the terms verbally agreed  to between their solicitor and the  members of the City Council,  whereby a franchise covering  twenty years was to be submitted to the electors of Enderby  for ratification, allowing the  Company to operate in Enderby  without bonus; and  Whereas, the: solicitors of the  Okanagan Telephone Co., have  stated that the negotiations are  entirely off, and signifying its  attention to enter Enderby regardless of the wishes of the  Council or the people, therefore  be it  Resolved, that we, the citizens  of Enderby, assembled in Public  Meeting, do hereby ratify every  step taken by the City Council in  the matter in dispute and, further, will support the Council in  whatever action that body sees  fit to take to prevent the Okanagan Telephone Company or any  other company or corporation  from usurping the city's corporate rights, or from entering the  city to do business upon any  other conditions than those laid  down by the City Council and  ratified as perscribed by law  by a vote of the ratepayers of  the City.  Mayor Bell and Mr. Buckley  interviewed Mr. Billings at Vernon on Tuesday. The company's  objections are not so much to the  conditions of the agreement as  to the tone of the final letter written by the city. The difficulty  will probably be straightened out  this week.

C, August 27. 1908  11  Creston Looks Good  J. J. Atherton has succeeded  in getting out the first issue of  the Creston Review, and judging  from the amount of business represented, he is in clover. In  his satlutatory he says:  "With this issue the Creston  Review enters the journalistic  arena, and we may add under  most encouraging conditions.  When the parties responsible for  this venture arrived to size up  the field for a location they were  met by the business men of Creston in a manner that is unprecedented in the annals of news-  paperdom. The result is that a  modern newspaper plant has been  installed, and the call for patronage has been responded to in  a marked whole-souled manner.  We venture to   assert that   no  town in Western Canada has  hitherto held at the onset such  an enthusiastic and enterprising  aggregation of business men.  Welcoming  Home Her Athletes  A despatch from New Westminster says: "New Westminster welcomed home her victorious lacrosse team last night-  such a welcome as has never before been accorded by any city in  the West to her sons.

The demonstration was so genuine that hundreds  of visitors who came from Vancouver and other points to see it  all went away with the opinion  that if other cities took the same  interest in their athletes as the  Royal City did that more conquering heroes would be found  among the athletes of the West.''  Will Enderby "Get Took"?  For the purpose of taking moving pictures to be used in England in the advertising of the  industries and resources of Brit-  ish Columbia, James Ferens, representative of an English firm  of moving-picture markers which  has made a contract with the  Government of this province, is  in Vancover. Mr. Ferens has  been instructed to take special  care in the preparation of a series  of pictures showing the fruit  growing possibilities of some of  the interior valleys, as the government wishes to advertise the  horticultural resources of the  provinces as widely and intelligently as possible throughout  Great Britain.
