Pa says: "Wen politix an'  religion is   at   contraries,  most men forget  their religion, iv'ich is quite proper���������������������������of  course.''  JjFROM ONEMAN'S point of viewo  ENDERBY voters have had ample opportunity for hearing Duncan Roso and  Martin Burrell, and of measuring the  two men. If any man conscientiously  wishes to cast his vote for the best man,  he should not have any difficulty in deciding. Martin Burrell has character stamped  upon every line of his face, and back of  every word a man speaks. He shows none  of the ear-marks of the politician; he is  head and shoulders above that, and in him  we see the statesman. In his speech he is  fair, calm, clear and convincing. He says  nothing by innuendo; and never strikes below the belt. He is a man that fears no  one, and of whom no one need be afraid.  A born Englishman, he stands boldly up  and declares himself against a cowardly  jugejofanv kind, and would preferJ-OLgO-  down in defeat rather than take a mean  advantage of an opponent. Mr. Burrell's  address was by long odds the clearest,  sanest and fairest of the campaign. And  he held his audience on every word. He  has the happy faculty of expressing himself with candor and conviction without  giving offense. He wins the sympathies  of his audience by proving himself capable  of fighting his own fight without them.  He does not play upon the prejudices of his  hearers, ana asks no unmerited favors.  He plays the game fairly and squarely, by  placing before his hearers the proofs of his  argument and leaves it to the good judgment of his audience. Mr. Burrell has always been a favorite with an Enderby audience, and his speech this week not only  bound closer the ties of friendship but won  for him a position in the   hearts of his  hearers that will impel them not only to  vote for him but to work for him.  IF ever a man had good reason for kicking himself, that man is Duncan Ross.  His deferred election ruse has been a  serious proposition and will no doubt cost  him his seat. British fair play is demanded of men in the West. This" is the way  the Similkameen Star, which professes to  ' be a Liberal paper but declines to support  Duncan Ross puts it: "Any man who is  afraid to meet his foe on equal ground has  already admitted that he deserves censure  rather than praise." And thus speaks the  Nelson News: ' 'The people of Yale-Cariboo  will not be misled by any bluff that Mr.  Duncan Ross will be taken into the cabinet  if he is elected. They know that a man  who was so fearful of defeat in a straight  fight that he deferred the election in order  to secure, if possible, an unfair advantage  is not the kind of man out of which cabinet  ministers are made." If we have heard one  we have heard a dozen men who claim to  have supported Mr. Ross in the last election  say that this time they are going to vote  for him to stay at home.  w  HAT is believed to be the first special train load of British Columbia  apples^ever=shipped=asa=speciaUvas-  made up and shipped from Grand Forks  Saturday last, and arrived in Vancouver  Tuesday following.

Dake. ���������������������������2  WALKER'S-WEEKLY,  MARTIN BURRELL MAKES TELLING SPEECH  1  zxxz  We have been told by Liberal  speakers that, while Martin Burrell  is a man of spotless character, an  eloquent orator and a man of undoubted ability, yet, they say,- he is  not a lighter. To Duncan Ross they  give all the fighting honor, and from  every platform in the Yale-Cariboo  District the voters have been asked  to return .Mr. Ross to Ottawa, because "he is a fighter."  But Martin Burrell, in his address  at Enderby last Saturday afternoon,  simply fought Duncan Ross clean off  the map. To compare the addresses  of the two men is needless. Mr.  Ross, in his address last week, skimmed over the real issues of the campaign and endeavored to make political capital out of questions that  were not issues in the campaign at  all. Mr. Burrell took up the arguments of Mr. Ross and showed by  Quoting from Mr. Ross' speeches in  Hansard that Mr. .Ross was either  talking for political effect regardless  of facts or had completely reversed  the order of his ^thinking, and had  changed his mind on the important  questions affecting British Columbia.  The Burrell meeting was without  dispute the most enthusiastic of the  campaign. The afternoon h6\w prevented many from attending, but the  hall was crowded to the doors, and  Mr. Burrell was compelled many  times to repeat himself when his  .voice was drowned by the applause  which greeted the climaxes of his  -juign m p.n 1 A L.lhe .conc.lusi.on_ot_.H_a.  meeting three rousing cheers and a  tiger were given for Mr. Burrell.  Certainly, no candidate for any  office was ever given a warmer reception than was given Mr. Burrell  at Enderby. and if the meeting is  any criterion of the voting-today, Mr.  Burrell will go out of Enderby with  a majority of -10 or more.  Mr. Fortune acted as chairman of  the meeting. Mr. Fulton, Commissioner of Lands and Works, was introduced as the first, speaker. He  came in the place of Mr. Cowan who  was detained at Vancouver. Mr.  Fulton stated that lie came to show  the true status of the Indian Reserve  dispute. Mr. Ross, in his address at  Enderby last week, stated that the  Provincial government was entirely  to blame for the unsatisfactory condition of the Indian reserve matter,  and he said that his government had  repeatedly    endeavored    to    get    the  matter into court in order to find out  just what rights the Provincial government had in the matter, and said  further that the Dominion government had determined to submit the  matter to the Privy Council whether  the Province was ready and willing  or not.  Mr. Fulton said he could not  understand how Mr. Ross could  make such a statement in face of the  real facts, and accused Mr. Ross of  being   either' forgetful   of   the   real  in the matter. Since then, the Dominion has applied to the Province  for additional Indian land, and to  this application Mr. Fulton has replied on behalf of the Province, that  since the Dominion has seen fit to  dispute the reversary rights of the  Province, the Province declines to  listen to any more applications for  Indian land from the Dominion, and  suggesting that the sooner the matter is brought into the courts for  settlement  the   better.     Two   letters  facts or deliberately trying to. mis- have been written the Dominion g^v-  lead. Through Mr. Fulton's depart- j eminent since then, asking the Do-  ment all business in connection with   pinion  to submit the matter to the  Indian lands in the . Province, is  handled. Mr. Fulton has carried on  all the correspondence1 that has  passed between the two. governments  in recent years, and his statement of  the case is so different from that  made by Mr. Ross that it places Mr.  Ross up a tree and would indicate  that Mr. Ross either did not know  what he was'talking about or was  ghing pure "guff"  to catch votes.  When the question of Indian reserves came up between the Dominion and the Province, Mr. Fulton  said, the Dominion asked the Province how much land it would give  the Dominion for Indian reserves.  The Province replied, five acres to  every Indian family of five. The  Dominion asked for SO acres for  every family of five. The Province  raised the allotment to 1.0 acres, then  to   2 0,   which   amount   was   agreed  courts and no answer has been receive:! from either ������������������of these letters.  Finally the Province has prepared a  case and will submit it to the full  court sitting at Vancouver this  month, and the Dominion has been  a������������������ked to defend the issue, but no attention has been paid to the request  up to the present time.  Mr. Fulton also referred to the  Kian Island matter and contrasted  the attitude of the Provincial government with that of the Dominion,  showing wherein the interests of the  Province were safeguarded by the  Prowncial government when the  agreement was entered into with the  Grand Trunk Pacific. In closing, I e  referred to the Conservative successes in the Province, and asked the  support of th voters for Mr. Burren  on his strength as a man capable of  standing shoulder to shoulder with.

Mr.  Burrell  was loudly 'appla-irlel  minion government asking "that a  settlement be made with the Province so that they may be opened to  white settlers; The reply of the Dominion government was, that there  was a. question as to whether the  Province had any reversary interest  in these lands and the Dominion de-  wh'en he took the platform. Mr. Burrell said on opening that he failed to  see in any of the reported speeches  of Mr. Ross a single argument that  would appeal to an nonest voter who  asked no more than his lights and  was prepared to give a square deal.  He took up Mr. Ross' reported stafe-  clined  to enter into any negotiations   merits,      made      throughout     Yale. ENDERBY,B. C, November 12, 1908  Cariboo, and answered them one by  one.     He stated  at  the  ouiset  that  he would not make a statement taat  was  nit  supported  in  the   pages   of  Hansard, and his faculty for turning  Mr.  Ross' own  reported speeches  to  answer   Mr.   Ross'   own   statements,  pleased the audience greatly.    In the  matter of better terms, he said Liat:  while Mr. Ross is claiming this to fje  a   question   of   no   importance,   and  put  out  as  a  vote-getter,   still,   Mr.  Ross had, while on the floor in the  last parliament, favored better terms  until   his   chiefs   had   imposed   upoj:  1-ini the duty of keeping silent. Since  his   leaders  have   refused   to   permit  him to talk on the question of better   terms,   Mr.   Ross   has   contented  himself by declaring that we of British Columbia have no case;  that the  Dominion has already given us more  than we as a Province are entitled  to.     He   declares   the  cry   of  better  terms  is  a  fake,  and  says  that  Ave  have  already  been   paid   $5,000,000  more than we paid in.    The position  taken by Mr. Ross in this matter is  not the position taken by such good  Liberals as J. A. McDonald, M.P.P.,  who has, with other Liberals at his  back, been fighting for better terms  for British Columbia ever since the  question was raised.    And Mr. Laurier himself has conceded that owing  to  British  Columbia's  peculiar  geographical  position  and  the vastness  of its territory,  this pro\ince is entitled to better terms.    And, quoting  from   a   speech   made   by   Mr.   Ross  1 imself,   we   find   him  saying:     "So  far  as  B.  C.  is  concerned,  its  chief  function is,to contribute funds to be  expended  in  other  provinces."  Mr. Burrell considered the Jap the  =*greates t=-m en aee-4o=-Ga. n ad a-o f-a. n -y=o r-  all of the yellow people. When the  Conservative party was in power, the  federal government submitted to  Canada for approval or rejection the  treaty proposed between England  rmd Japan allowing the Japs to enter  Canada without restriction. The  Conservative government refused to  accept the treaty unless Canada were  allowe.l to have the benefit of the  restricting clause. When the Laurier  government came into power, the  same treaty was submitted to Canada, and after much delay, Mr. Laurier agreed to accept the treaty unconditionally, and in so doing gave  over to Japan the power to dictate  terms of restriction. Pie referred to  the numerous Natal acts passed by  the  Province of B.  C,  all  of which  were sent back by the Dominion government with the statement that  they could not be allowed to become  law   owing   to   "Imperial   reasons."  When the Japanese treaty was up  before the house for approval, the  only Liberal from British Columbia  that spoke against the treaty was Mr.  Kennedy, of New Westminster, and  he was cast out by the party for  daring to do so.  Mr. Burrell referred to Mr. Ross'  position on the Aylesworth bill,  which promised to disfranchise thousands of voters. This bill, he claimed,  was the most iniquitous legislation  that the party ever attempted to put  through, and yet, in all the long-  months devoted to fighting it, Mr.  Galliher of Kootenay was the only  Liberal from B. C. who dared question the purpose of it. Mr. Ross  tried his best to have it pass. In his  closing remarks favoring the passage  of the Aylesworth bill, Mr. Ross is  reporte ! in Hansard: "It would be  cowar ice for us not to pass this bill,  notwithstanding the onslaught of the  opposition." But the fight against  the bill was so bitter, that, in spite  of the large Liberal majority, the  Government failed to push it  through.  When the American fruit growers  were attempting to have the tariff  on American fruit wiped out, Mr.  Ross was not in Ottawa to look after  the interests of his constituency. He  was out in British Columbia, stumping for Mr. McDonald. And were it  not for the interest of the fruit men,  who had to fight the battle alone  and unaiiled by their member, the  tariff on fruit from the other side  would  have been  removed.  Concluding   his   speech,   Mr.   Burrell referred to the cowardice of Mr.  Ross in  having the election in Yale-  Cariboo deferred.    But it was read  jly_s een^ti 1 at-1 i-i s-r e-m a rk s-i n-t-1 1 i s-eo n��������������������������� =-  nection were unnecessary.  The audi  ence  showed   in   every  possible   way I  *      i  its recognition of the cowardice and !  its resentment toward the perpe- !  trator. Mr. Burrell said he was confi- j  dent the people of Yale-Cariboo j  would show their resentment at hav- j  ing this political ruse worked upon \  them, and lie felt confident of elec- j  tion. He said lie did not have post-  offices, telephones, and other govern- j  ment favors in his pockets to offer as i  a bait to the voters, but he promise:!  that should he be elected, he would  honestly and conscientiously strive  to serve the District to the limit of  his ability. He said he would not be  a silent member when British Columbia's interests were at stake.  Live, love and laugh and you will  escape   dyspepsia.

Hospital Talk  Five Enderby cases are booked  for the Vernon hospital this  month, which means, roughly,  $600 or $700 transfered from Enderby to Vernon. Thus it goes.  Enderby has had four resident  physicians in as many years. Good  physicians come to locate here.  In a year or so they move to other  fields.   Why?  This question was asked last  week. The answer was so easy  everybody guessed it. Enderby  people are compelled to go to  Vernon and take hundreds of dollars out of Enderby, because Enderby   has   provided   no   place  where the sick can be taken care  of. The movement inaugurated  by the ladies of the town, for a  hospital for Enderby is the wisest  effort that has been put. forth,  not only from a humane standpoint, but from the point of business as well, and it is hoped that  ihe^publ i c^meeti ng^-to^be^hel dan.  a few days will be attended by  everybody having the welfare of  Enderby at heart.

Enderby Tra  Co.Ltd- Qrv  /6  WALKER'S WEEKLY,  Presbyterian Bazaar and Sunday  School Entertainment  Thanksgiving Day was bright  and warm���������������������������an ideal day for  thanksgiving festivities. In the  early afternoon the band gave a  much appreciated concert from  the bandstand, and then adjourned to the Presbyterian  Church where they gave several  selections for the benefit of the  church bazaar, there in progress.  The bazaar proved to be a success. The fancy work counter  made a noise like a groan under  the weight of pretty and useful  things; the candy booth looked  too sweet for anything tucked  away in the cozy corner; and the  refreshment tables enticed many  of the sterner sex to partake of  the dainties there offered. The  proceeds from the bazaar sales  amounted to $110.  In the evening the Sunday  School children's entertainment  was given in the basement. It  proved to be quite as great a  success as the bazaar. Ted  Hopkins was financial  agent for  the affair, and as such saw to it  that the good things, including  the price of admission, fell alike  upon the just and the unjust.  Nobody escaped his watchful eye.  And as a result, the ladies who  handled the affair are jubilant,  having taken in $71 for the  church fund.  Rev. Mr. Campbell officiated  as chairman, while Mrs. Crane  handled the music, and Mrs.  Hendrickson, Mrs. Glenn, and  Miss Wheeler directed the children. When this is said it is  hardly necessary to add that the  exercises went without a hitch.  Promptly at 8 o'clock the exercises began, and at 9:30 "God  Save the King" was sung.  The boys and girls taking part  in the drills and motion songs  richly deserve all the praise bestowed upon them, on their own  behalf and on behalf of the ladies  through whose untiring efforts  the children were brought to  such splendid self-possession. If  one feature of the entertainment  is to be pointed out  as being  especially pleasing it is the.sweet  baby simplicity of the wee tots,  Marjorie Bell and Alma Matthews. Their unconscious acting  in the motion songs convulsed  the house. Following is the program as rendered:  Greeting Song School  Recitation,   ' The    Free ' Seat,''  Florence Nichol  Drill, "Sunbonnet Babies," Children  Song, "Sunbeams,"   Rena & Dorothy Dunwoodie  Motion song, "God Loves,"  Girls  Recitation, ' 'Prayer & Potatoes,''   Edna   Greyell  Song, "How Many Miles," Winnie Bell  Song, "Johnnie's   Trade," Boys  Handkerchief   Drill, Ten Girls  Recitation, "The Dishes," Grace Miller  Song, "Jumbo," Dorothy Dunwoodie  Song, "Oh, What a Clatter," Girls  Recitation, Big Dipper, Marjorie Taylor  Song,   "Invalid   Dolly," . Little Girls  Song, "The Owl,"  ...Boys  Motion   song,   "God   is   Love," Girls  Song, "Leaf by Leaf the Roses Fall,"  Florence Nichol  Hoop Drill Song Girls  God Save the King  Miss Edna Greyell won much  praise by her pleasing rendition  of the recitation allotted to her;  the recitation and song by Miss  Florence Nicholl, and the recitation by Grace Miller and the song  by Winnie Bell, were also exceptionally well given. The little  ones all did well.  We have a very fine and varied selection of  Dress Goods & Blouse Materials  Which we want every lady in town to see.    For instance:  Children's School Dresses  We can sell you a very nice one, suitable for a child up to 12 years of age, for $3.50  and we can sell you a similar material, enough to make a similar dress, for about 1.50  Why not make the dress yourself and SAVE,        #2.00  Life is made up of opportunities like this, but you must  SEE them and SEIZE them.     Let us help you do it.  ������������������-,V,V. ���������������������������;*.-;���������������������������; '  HARVEY & DOBSON, General Merchants, Enderby ENDERBY,B. C, November 12, 1908  An Honest Grit Paper  The Princeton Star is a Grit  paper and enjoys advertising pap  from Ottawa, yet its editor has  the courage to speak as follows:  "Any man who is afraid to  meet his foe on equal grounds  has already admitted that he deserves censure rather than praise.  To court defeat one has only to  play the coward. The most that  should have been done was to  put nomination day ahead so that  every voter in the Dominion  could vote on the same day.. No  other country in the civilized  world would countenance such a  monstrosity as a deferred election.  "Mr. Burrell has an unsullied  reputation and has the respect of  every man and woman in the riding, two things that will easily  offset the unfair advantage his  Grit opponent may have in a deferred election.  No matter what government or  party in power Mr. Burrell will  creditably represent the people  and easily accomplish as much  for the Princeton district as any  government supporter.    He does  not descend to personalities or  indulge in low insinuations,   his  plane of oratory being far above  the average.   ....   .   Any  government with a large majority behind it is bound to become  top heavy, and must, sooner or  later, totter to ruin of its own  unwieldy proportions. Political  corruption thrives best where the  grafter maggots are most plentiful. Therefore, it would seem  to be the part of wisdom for the  voter to keep down large majorities in the house as much as  possible. The deferred elections  and at leaat two by-elections now  in sight afford a fitting opportunity to theu voter to equalize the  present towering majority of  Sir Wilfred.

C. 8  WALKER'S WEEKLY,  "East is East, and West is West"  Much has been heard about the  inability of the Canadian government to exclude the yellow races  and especially persistent has  been this cry when British Columbia has passed exclusion laws  and they have been vetoed by the  Dominion government. That  this cry is .not going to be permitted to block legislation along  these lines much longer, is becoming more apparent daily. A  splendid article in The British  Export Gazette, the leading trade  journal of the United Kingdom,  indicates that the question is receiving serious consideration by  the powers that be. Taking  Mauritius, an English island in  the Indian Ocean, as an example  the Gazette says:  "Mauritius is an example of  how the white man has been entirely displaced by the invasion  of Asiatics. That island has been  over-run with them, and they include almost every nationality  known in-the East. We are not,  of course, without sympathy for  those Asiatics who are British  subjects, and at first sight it  seems an anomaly to exclude  them from trading in any of our  Colonies whilst granting this  j privilege to the European because he happens to be white.  But, as Kipling somewhere says���������������������������  East is East, and West is West.  "In the line we have quoted  is summed up the whole gist of  the matter. The two races are  irreconcilable, and cannot live on  the same plane with each other.  The question is proving a thorn  in the side of the Transvaal and  Imperial Governments, as it did  in pre-war times, but in the end  the Asiatic must go, for as the  Natal Colonial Secretary recently  stated, this class of trader is eating into the very vitals of our  Colonies, and just as the question  is becoming acute in Zanzibar and  South Africa, so it will be elsewhere���������������������������it has already become.so  in Jamaica���������������������������and where the law  does not exclude such undesirables, however regretable it may  be that the innocent may have to  I suffer for the guilty, the next  best thing is for European merchant houses, of whatever nationality, to stop all credit or  other facilities for competing  with the white races."

King Edward Hotel, ^LtummY Enderby  Rhapsodies from   Russell.  Law deals with conduct: grace  with character; golden character  will always ensure golden conduct.  Law without love is soulless  serenity; love without law is  superficial sentimentality.  The tender pianissimos of the  saintly soul are mightier forces  than the thundering fortissimos  of stellar systems that sweep  through the abysses of space.  God either coaxes or coerces  His people to come out of the  world; he constrained Abraham;  but he had to burn Lot out.  Multitudes throng Jesus who  never touch Him; it is the touch  of a living faith that brings healing and health from the medicated hem.  God is too great for our heads  to explain, but not too great for  our hearts to experience.  If you want to find vultures,  dispense carion, if crows, sow  corn, and if you want to find the  spirit-born soul, sow the word of  God.  The Word without fire has  filled the Church with formalism;  the fire without the" Word has  threatened her with fanaticism.  It is not the discussion, but the  concussion   of   high   explosives  that^o.uses^th.e=JZitanLc=gJaat=to=  hurl the Alpine barriers from the  route of advancing civilization.  "I" am bigger than the Hym-  alayas now, "I" am mightier  than the Megatherian monsters  herepbut in the futures in the  ages to be, it may be, 'T' shall  transcend the arch-angel that  bows and burns before the throne  of God.  .' 'What dost thou call a  beautiful soul? Thou callest  a beautiful soul one that is  quick to perceive the good,  that gives it due prominence  and holds it immovably fast.

Walker's Weekly: Sir:  Will you permit me to reply to  W. Allan Dobson's communication in last week's issue of,your  paper. I am not trying to attract attention to myself, therefore I prefer to sign myself  "Deep Creek." I do not withhold my name through cowardice;  I only asked the merchants of  Enderby a simple question, and  one which I believe many of my  neighbors would like to see answered. Mr. Dobson does not  speak for the merchants of Enderby, and his communication  only expresses his personal opinion about the farmer, ' 'pet of the  gods." Your merchants who  have dealt with the farmers long  before Mr. Dobson's time will, I  hope, know what it means for us  to drive to town through the mud  and snow of fall, winter and  spring, and perhaps they can  imagine our feelings when we do  so on a Wednesday and find the  stores closed. Whenwe do so  once, the next time we will drive  to a town where the merchants  are not so overworked.  Deep Creek.  It is not a new revelation we  need, but the spirit illumination of  the old revelation. 12  WALKER'S WEEKLY,  Under the Pines  UNDER THE PINES is the daintiest little magazine published in Canada.
