Pa says:   "You never can tell how hard a flea can bite by  the distance it can jump.  >}  a:  FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  z^  THE action of the Water and Light  Committee in doggedly ignoring the  request of Aid. Forbes for more street  lights, and particularly the placing of three  or four along the road leading to the residences of Messrs. Dobson, Gibbs and Teece,  is neither fair, just or businesslike. The  lights are needed on this piece of road; the  citizens named have been paying taxes into  the city treasury since the town was incorporated and have not been given even so  much as a foot-path. The statement of  Chairman Evans that the summer season is  coming, when the lights will not be so badly needed, isv hardly worthy of anyone in  his position.to The season of all seasons  when lights are needed in these unprotected  places is at the breaking up of winter. The  mud along this street-road in the spring of  the year would disgrace an ill-kept barnyard, and yet the City Council has stub-  Hbornlyniisisted^  walk through it to their homes, unassisted  by even a toe-path or a street light. It is  time these properties were either being  exempt from city taxation or given some of  the benefits of such taxation. Enderby  needs to encourage people to build Handsome homes in the city suburbs for other  reasons than that the city may draw increased taxation from them. The policy  that is miserly, giving as little as possible  of what is received, will not do. Last year  these ratepayers petitioned the Council for  a three-foot sidewalk. They were promised  a foot-path. But the city procrastinated  from month to month, and the promised  foot-path is still through the mud. For  heaven's sake, gentlemen, cut out this putting off from spring to fall and fall to spring.  Patience has ceased to be a virtue on the  +  BY Tins  /c^ffiac^     NUM&J.R 52  /,  part of these rate  but creditable to  ignore their needs as  :s.  ^  Qjfey to^pers&tentfyj!  " " * 5 c-  THE Okanagan District i^'fertreiffely  fortunate in being represented at Victoria by a man so well acquainted with  the District's needs and one so sound in his  judgment and impartial in his demands as  the Hon. Price Ellison. Not only is Mr.  Ellison a man who has the confidence and  esteem of all classes in his constituency, but  he stands high in the council of his party  and is in close touch with the Government  leaders. No man realizes better than he  the magnitude of the Okanagan and the  splendor of its possibilities. That he is not  over modest in representing to the Government the needs of the District, is evident  from the liberal treatment accorded the  Okanagan. And that the Government is  fully awake to the great future opening to  us, is indicated by its readiness to meet every  progressive move, and assist where it can.  Eighty thousand dollars will be spent on  roads and bridges' in the Okanagan this  year. This is the largest appropriation  made for any one district in the Province.  The Enderby-Mabel Lake road is to be  completed; also the road giving Trinity  Valley an outlet this way. The Grindrod  bridge and the Trinity Valley bridge will  also be built this season. These roads and  bridgeswjlLgiveaccess to_districts_close_tO-  Enderby that have been retarded for years.  They will open to settlement many thousands of acres and reduce the distance to  railway transportation from 50 to 16 miles  in the case of Trinity Valley, and from 8  to-less-than 2 miles in the case of the Grindrod settlers.  T  jHAT the McBride Government is fully  alive to the requirements of the Province, and has boundless faith in its  future development, is strongly in evidence  in the estimates handed down last week  by the Hon. Mr. Tatlow. The estimated  revenue for the year is placed at $5,948,626.  Of this amount, nearly $3,000,000 will be  spent on public works, half of which in the  building of roads, streets, bridges and  wharves. The cost of bridges alone  throughout the Province will be $225,000. ���������������������������IW winra*  I HI   II1 i WW  WALKER'S WEEKLY  XX  NEWS IN AND ABOUT THE TOWN AND DISTRICT  >x  _XX_  X__><__X  Tree planting is next.

Waddell  entertained a party of friends,at  their country home last Monday  evening.  A petition is being circulated  asking the Government to open  the season for grouse from Oct.  1st to Dec. 31st.  Rev. Mr. Estabrook, J3. A., of  Summerland, will assist in the  Sunday services in the Baptist  church, morning and evening.  The Enderby_, Trading Co. has  eral deals the past week. The  Messrs. Ahier, Pearce and the  Attenbough Bros., late arrivals  from the Old Country, are well  pleased with the district and are  buying such snaps as they can  get in touch with.  The Poultry Associations of B.  C. are petitioning the Railway  Commission to have the express  rate on exhibition fowl reduced  from double merchandise rate to  single merchandise rate.  Hon. Price Ellison writes to C.  S. Handcock,   chairman   of  the  Urgently Needed  If ever a Government had the  opportunity offered it to save an  important industry, and thereby  add wealth to the country and  honor to its name, that Government is the McBride Government  and the time is NOW. Everyone acquainted with the conditions knows that the fruit industry in this province is at a critical  stage. To compete with the  shippers of other fruit sections,  the supply must be handled by  one selling head, similar to the  Grindrod bridge committee, that Central Exchange. Owing to the  he has succeeded in getting from unfortunate circumstances which  the Government a pledge that the j the Central was up against last  bridge will be built this season, j season, the confidence of the  Mr. Ellison has also assured the producers was shaken in the in-  Board of Trade that the Enderby- j stitution, and the private jobbers  Mabel Lake,  and Trinity Valley are taking advantage of the cir-  roacls will be finished this season.  Entertained Vernon Curlers  The Enderby Curling Club entertained two Vernon rinks on  the Enderby ice Tuesday night.  Hamilton Lang skipped one of  the visiting rinks,   T. E. Crowell  the   other.     Skip   Lang played  Bridgman, McPhail and Duncan; terprise.     We  understand   Mr.  cumstances to inaugurate the cutthroat game that has been operated so disastrously to the shippers elsewhere in times past  What must be done now is to restore confidence in the Central.  This can only be clone by the  Government stepping . in, and  lending active support to the en-  placed in stock a full line of poultry supplies, to meet the require-;  ments of this rapidly growing industry.  Enderby's Mayor can  skip a  rink made up of aldennanic/'cul>"  lers that will venture to clean up  the ice with any aldermanic rink  in the Valley.  The Union choir will lead the  song service in the Baptist church  next Sunday, morning, afternoon  and evening. AH members of  the choir are asked to kindly  meet at the church Saturday evening for practice.  Real estate transfers at Mara  are of daily occurrence. Chas.  W. Little has put through sev-  Skip Crowell, Jaques, Smith and  Watt Mack.   Each rink was giv-  ^lTtwtn.'an^  up four rinks, as follows: Scott���������������������������  Wm. Jones, Hutchison, E.

The   Vernon  curlers  were evidently not accustomed to  a heavy ice, for they made a poor  showing   against   the   Enderby,  rinks, the score of the evening! of adjustment having to be made  being, Enderby 58,   Vernon 22. ; and ^ f}^������������������^^^l  At the completion of the games,  Jas.

In the case  the players adjourned to the King-  Edward where Host Murphy had  prepared a 1 avish supper for 30,  and here a few hours were spent  in placing the good . things close  to the button. It was an evening  of genuine pleasure to all.  dition, the inspector shall assist  in making said allowance and report on same to grower and Exchange. The grower will then  inquire into the cause of his fruit  arriving in poor condition, and  will find a remedy for same, instead of laying all the. blame on  the unfortune agent of the Central Exchange.

Mayor Bell reported on the  matter of City Hall, giving the  result of his trip to Victoria to  lay the proposition before the  Government. While he could report nothing of a definite nature  as the result of his interview  with the Executive, still, the  proposition of the Government  joining with the city in the erection of a court house and city  hall combined was well received,  and now awaits the submitting of  definite plans and a definite proposition from the City to get the  Government's final answer.  ��������������������������� Aid. Peel introduced a by-law  to raise the sum of $2,500 for  street improvements, and the  same passed its first reading.  ; The by-law provides for the laying of sidewalks on ail streets  where there are dwelling houses;  the taking up of all two-plank  walks and replacing them with  4-foot ones;"' the proper grading  and gravelling of Cliff street from  the bridge to George street; the  grading of Railway street; the  laying of permanent cement  _cross.inp;s.at_.the.,follow_ing_places:.  on Cliff St. from west to east  side of Belvedere; on Cliff, from  west side of Belvedere to south  side of Cliff; across Cliff on west  side of George; across George on  north side of Cliff; across Cliff  from west side of Maud to east  side of Vernon Road; across Vernon Road on south side of Cliff.  The by-law provides further, for  the grading of an approach on  Sicamous St. to a road to be constructed on the Lawes addition;  the grading and gravelling of a  pathway along the west side of  Salmon Arm road to the city  limit; the straightening of the  sidewalk on Knight street, and  to make other improvements in  various places.  It is proposed to make the debentures cover-.a period of ,10  years, bearing 6 per cent interest.  In. the matter of additional  street lighting, Aid. Evans stated  that the committee had no report  to make; the summer season  is coming when street lights will  be less needed, and he intimated  that perhaps the matter would  come up again in the Fall.  Aid. Forbes suggested a compromise, but the question was  lost in the next order of business.  The finance committee reported  the current accounts and 'they  were ordered paid.  A letter was read from Aid!  Jones stating that he would be  unable to attend the Council if  Monday was to be the meeting  night. Wednesday being agreeable to all, it was the night settled upon.  A letter from City Clerk Rosoman asked the Council to segregate the offices of City Clerk and  Collector and that of Police  Magistrate, and allow the salary  of $85 per month to apply to the  post of City Clerk and Collector,  and grant an additional salary of  $15 a month to the post of Police  Magistrate; explaining that the  in^_ccinn_ectio_i___vvith^=,the.-  District. The dance, to which  all were invited, was enjoyed in  the fullest measure, and the  supper, served bountifully and  free to all, was relished as a supper can'be relished only when the  appetite has been sharpened by a  10-mile drive in the brisk night  air. The hall is a commodious,  well-built structure; a great credit  to all having anything to do with  its construction, and is a lasting  monument to what can be done  by a few public-spirited people  when they make up their minds  to do it.    A Broken Watch  Is seldom beyond repair by a  skillful watchmaker. No matter  what the trouble is, we can repair  it.    Dake, Enderby.  When you can  build a home to  offices named had so increased as  to warrant the increase in salary  he was asking. The question  was laid over until the next  meeting, the Mayor and Aldermen recognizing the full importance of Mr. Rosoman's statement, and appreciating the excellent services Mr. Rosoman has  rendered the city in the past, but  feeling that they could better  decide the matter after fuller deliberation.  %  b4=/_i^_j^1^  Hall Opening  Fully 250 people gathered at  the Hullcar-Deep Creek hall last  Friday evening to enjoy the hospitality of the good people of that  Seasoned  Lumber  Always on Hand  I also a full line of building ma-  | tei'ial.

E. Waby  v.:  <_z><i:  Fellow Fanciers: Twelve  months ago I should have  said fellow poultrymen, but  the enthusiasm shown at our  recent show makes one think  that we of the Northern  Okanagan can boast of quite  a few fanciers and would-be  fanciers. The latter class, of  course, is always in the majority. Ten years from now  it will be the'same, the only  difference being that we  hope those of today will be  the fanciers by at least five  years. Five years seems a  long time, does it not, but  anyone who enters into this  field with the expectation of  sweeping the board from  now on is apt to be like the  man who took first on Barred Rock cockerels three  years in succession and then  quit because he was beaten       _  the fourth vear.    There are j cause we are going to have  none of us" but what must! good stuff here,and everyone  those who are chicken-hearted, but there is some consolation in the fact that the  back-bone of the Northern  Okanagan Poultry Association rests with men who are  there to stay and will not  whine if they don't produce  the winner every year. Remember, the writer has exhibited a good many fowl,  but could not produce^ one  which would score higher  than Mr. Smedley's champion male. Our own^ champion female may easily get  beaten another year.  Now that our first show is  over we must not sit clown  and wait till fall before we  make a start for our next.  The man who goes along  this year in a happy-go-lucky  way'is the man who is going  to get left next winter, be-  expect to meet our Waterloo  at some time.

You will have seen by an  earlier issue of this paper  the fine list of specials already donated for the benefit of those who are lacking  somewhat in experience.  We are now going after a  good list for members only  and hope that the members  of out association will do  themselves and the men who  contribute justice by working hard and bringing out a  string of their favorites next  winter, early hatched, well  matured and in the pink of  condition.  .

Pyman   left  Enderby for  Princeton Wednesday morning,  where   he   will   engage   in the  jewelry business.    Mr. Pyman's  departure   from   Enderby    will  leave a place unfilled,  for there  are few men of his. stamp doing  time on this terrestrial ball, flat  at the poles and shaped like an  orange.    For originality of metaphor, and a heart filled with the  milk of human kindness, F. Pyman can touch the  best in the  best of us and leave us lank and  lean upon the scab rock of everyday service.     The   children of  Enderby will miss Mr. and Mrs.  Pyman. Unblessed with children  of their own,   they  are mother  and father to the community's  children.    In business, social and  religious circles they have always  taken a prominent par3t, and their  going will mean a loss to Enderby  in many ways.    On Tuesday the  teachers of the public and high  schools   presented   Mr.   Pyman,  as retiring member of the school  board, with a handsome gift and  letter of appreciation, and in the  evening   a  number  of   friends  gathered at the home of Mayor  Bell to say good-by to him.  Dedication of Baptist Church  .-���������������������������Sunday: next, the morning ser-  vice in the Presbyterian church"  and the evening service in the  Methodist church will not be held,  and the presence of all church  people will be directed to the  Dedication Day services to be  held morning, afternoon and evening in the new Baptist church.  This week the finishing touches  are being put upon the interior  and when it is formally opened  on Sunday morning the church  will be finished, with the exception of the baptismal basin to be  placed beneath the choir stage,  and the painting of the exterior.  The erection of this splendid  edifice, in six week's time, and  all by the work of the members  of the congregation, gratuitously  given, is one of the finest examples of loyalty to   purpose that  was ever seen. The church, when  opened,   will be absolutely free  from debt.    Its erection was undertaken by  the   faithful few,  in the face of tremendous diffi-  cutlies.     The subscription paper  was not passed, and the public of  Enderby has not been asked to  contribute a penny to pay for it.  When money was needed, it was  forthcoming; but more important  than money, was the labor, and  this, all gave  liberally.    Where  the women of the congregation  could help, they were there and  the work was done.   The church  is  complete    throughout;   with  choir room and stage, dressing-  room in connection with the immersion platform, and platform  and pulpil directly in front of the  choir.    The building is plastered  throughout; with a 4-foot wainscoting.   The auditorium is 28x42,  and is lighted by electricity.  What are You ?

WILSON  Manager WALKER'S WEEKLY  _*_���������������������������  xzxzx  PRO BONO PUBLICO  rzxnE  (Correspondents will please be brief and avoid  personalities. The Editor reserves the right to  reject any correspondence or part of correspondence that does not bear on the question at issue,  or treats the subject in a personal interest rather  than in the interest of the public. Be brief.  Words do not make thought. Write over a nom  de plume if you wish, but sign your name also.)  The Editor, Walker's Weekly:  Dear Sir:   Why have we  not a branch of the Society  for the Prevention of Cruelty  to Animals in this district?  This society has done noble  service in all parts of the  world, not only in protecting  the dumb creatures, but also  in leading people to take a  kindly interest in our humble fellow-beings; in fact, it  might well be called: The  Society for Humanizing  Humanity.  The prosecution which  took place recently for working horses when in an unfit  condition, a brief report of  which appeared in your last  issue, is an encouraging sign,  and it is earnestly to be hoped that the police will search  out as many of such cases as  possible, and bring the offenders to justice. I was in  Court during the trial, and  heard Mr. Murphy, counsel  ^for^t-he^defeneersa-y^tha^he  had seen many horses worked in a worse state than the  Linton Bros.' horses were in.  If this is so, it is a shame  and a scandal that the law  is not more strictly enforced.  Cruelty is debasing both to  those who practise it and to  those who witness and tolerate it, and we cannot afford,  as a community reaching out  towards the light of a better  day, to allow this canker of  cruelty, this lingering legacy  of evil from the dark ages',  to fester in our midst.  More power to the arm of  the Provincial Constable, say  I!   But it is the duty,  not  only of the police, but of  everyone, to do his or her  part in asserting and enforcing the law of justice and  mercy to the animal creation,  and in inculcating by precept  and example the practice of  universal benevolence and  kindness.

A distinguished physician, famous  for his successful treatment of  catarrh and rheumatism, kidney and  bladder troubles, states as follows:���������������������������  "Oar climate being more or less  clamp and changeable, is bad for  catarrh and rheumatism, -and care  must be taken not to let these  troubles gain headway. In addition,  he states that a great many Canadians arc careless in their habits,  and to this as much as climatic conditions is due a. great deal of the  trouble. Insufficient clothing and  improper eating, will cause rheumatic  aud catarrhal trouble in any climate.  This  eminent  authority gives  the  following  as  the  simplest -and  best  treatment known to science, and  to  it   he   gives   credit   largely  for   his  success:    '.Fluid'Extract  Cascara.   ���������������������������'/_  oz.;   Fluid   Extract   Carriana   Compound, 1  oz.;  Compound Syrup Sar-  saparilla, 6 oz.

ENDERBY  Hard to Believe  The Provincial Government has  granted $8,000 towards the erection of a new wing to the hospital  at Revelstoke.  When the bare news that Mr.  Manson had defaulted at Prince  Rupert was received in Alberni  on Monday night the Conservatives refused to believe it and  there were some who offered to  wager that it was untrue.  When confirmation was received indignation was rife, and the  time that has passed since then  has done nothing to soothe the  feelings of the bitterly disappointed ones.  Twice in close succession have  the loyal Conservatives of this  part of Comox-Atlin been betrayed, and this, the second betrayal,  is worse than the first.  Never before in the history of  Alberni was there such a united,  determined and hopeful effort, in  a political cause, as that which  was being made in opposjtion to  candidature of Hon. William Tem-  pleman. The movement began  with spontaneous enthusiasm, and  bore the stamp of success right up  to the minute the fatal news arrived.���������������������������Alberni Pioneer News.
