Few of us can stand  I the pinch of a new idea. We prefer  to jog along in the same old line  of thought, undisturbed by the honest  questionings of the Neophite. seeking to  know the truth of life. We prefer to clip  and compress great truths to fit our narrow minds and rutified environment in  place of expanding to them. As another  has said, "We cut our souls to fit the fiats  we live.in."  Elsewhere in this issue we are pleased to  present the views of Rev. Mr. Campbell on  the matter of local option. It will be seen  that Mr. Campbell takes exception to the  reference made in these columns last week,  and, in doing so, localizes the question  which we treated in a general way and  from the standpoint that the existing liquor  evil was beinp; fourfit from a false base.  "TTis not our purpose to reply to Mr. Campbell. From his point of view his argument  is sound. We would say, however, that  we do not believe Mr. Campbell's paralleling the local option laws with the tariff  M_i;ws- and laws against crime is gustfafc  ItNis not legal to commit murder, or theft.  It is legal to sell liquor. It is not coercion  to compel men to oboy the laws of the  land they live in. It is coercion for one  class to legislate personal p:i/ilr:gs away  from an0!her cla- \  Let it be undei^'-ood that the writer is  not in favor of the liquor law, nor any  law that permits intemperance of any  kind. We believe a man that will permit  his appetite or his passion to get the better  of him is a fool.    We believe "a nation that  legalizes the liquor traffic and profits by  the manufacture and_sale of liquor is a disgrace to mankind. We believe every dollar that the governmsnt derives from  the sale of liquor means the loss of five  dollars to the people of the nation. It is  not unreasonable to say that nine out of  ten business men realize this. There is no  question as to this. Nor is there any use  of talking about the evils of intemperance.  All of us know" them.  The point we wish to draw attention to  is this f Liquor selling is a legalized occupation. It is as legal as selling boots and  shoes, clothing and foodstuffs. It is, in  the eyes of the law, as necessary as any  other occupation. And while our national  and. provincial governments do legalize it,  it is coercion to compel the hotel men of  one community to do business without the.  aid. of the open bar while it is permitted in  another community a few miles away.  There is this point to be considered also.  Right or wrong, legalized liquor drinking  is for the liquor drinker���������������������������not for the teetotaler. Some men take their greatest pleasure of life out of the convivial cup, and  give to it their earnings; .others take their  greatest pleasure out of the communion  cup and give to it their earnings. Considering the question from a moral standpoint,  we each have our own opinion as to which  is the wiser course, and this opinion will be  based upon our conception of right and  wrong and our du t y_ tq qurselves and our  neighbor7 "The ApostlFTaul taught that  if to eat meat thy brother do offend, then  cut out the meat, and,-on the same hypothesis, if to not eat meat thy brother do of -  But don't make a  meat.  ?end,  then eat  4_og-o ^yourself,  - -  Nobody will question the right a community to ask the power to make local option laws. Such a bill should be passed  by the legislature. It will then be up to  the community to vote on such a law, and  if the required number of citizens vote in  favor of cutting out the open bar, the bars  must go. Nevertheless it will be local  coercion in a matter of legal right and  moral liberty. And legislation of this kind  by one class against another, never has  been known to accomplish that aimed at.

I  The curling- rink, on the recre- ���������������������������  ation ground, is gaily lighted each :  night and the walls ring with:  the chorus of frantic "soop'er;  up, mon; soop 'er up!" Manyj  ladies attend, splendid accommo- \  elation being provided for them i  where they can sit down and see:  the games and at the same time i  keep warm.  The Enderby Curling Club, and;  the town of Enderby, is to be con- j  gratulated on having such aj  splendid rink, and a building that i  may be used to great advantage  in the summer season. The rinks  are as good as any, and the spectators' room, which is heated by |  a stove and looks out upon the \  rinks from the south end, is provided with benches to accommodate a number of people.  Several scratch games have  been played, and the ice is getting  hot, and the players hotter.

The attendance was not large,  but everybody present took great  interest in the meeting.  President Horsley made a brief  report, showing the satisfactory  growth of the Institute, both in  members and work. The mem-  per_hip had grown from 271 last  year to 308 at the present time.  A new branch had been instituted the past year, covering Salmon River-Deep Creek territory,  and meetings were now being  held there the same as at Armstrong, Enderby and Mara.  President Hor_ley spoke somewhat strongly at the injustice of  the present method of obtaining  stumping powder for members of  the Institute.. The president and  secretary are now he'd porsoi.ally  responsible for the powder from  the time it leaves the factory at  Nanaimo until it is sold from the  magazine at Armstrong, and he  felt that it was too big a load for  them to carry, especially in view  of���������������������������the���������������������������fact���������������������������that���������������������������the=po-wd_iMs=  timed over to the members at  actual cost. It is not a business  proposition for the president and  secretary; they are not selling  the- powder at a profit, yet they  have to personally" finance the  purchase, the same as a powder  dealer. He believed some better  arrangement should be made.  The President also believed the  members should take a more active interest in the lectures given  by the experts provided by the  government. At the present time  he was under the impression that  the results did not warrant the  expenditure, and, in view of what  he had seen, he thought the same  money might be spent to greater  profit in other directions.  Wm. Matheson, in discussing  the President's report, said he  was strongly in favor of continuing the lectures, for, while it  may be true that fewer took an  interest in them than should, yet  he did not see what could be  gained by discontinuing them,  nor why those who did profit  by them should be deprived of  them because of the failure of  those not interested to attend.  He believed much more could be  gained from these lectures and  demonstrations than from literature.  Wm. Owen, Jas. Emeny and  E. B. Saltwell spoke briefly to  the question. They admitted that  fewer attended the lectures than  should, and also that different  speakers had different methods  of growing fruit,' etc., but  thought that the farmer and fruit  raiser should use his own judgment as to which method would  be most applicable to his particular locality.  Secretary-Treasurer Bird read  his financial statement, showing  the Institute to be in a flourishing condition with $149 to its  credit. He said he had heped  -that���������������������������the-past���������������������������year���������������������������would���������������������������have-  seen the Spallumcheen Institute  the largest in the province, but  the field was so large and he had  received so little help from the  outlying districts, he was disappointed in the increase in membership. He hoped this year to  see the Institute brought up to  first place.  The following officers were  elected: W. P. Horsley, president;  Wm. Owen, Mara, vice-president;  J. B. Bird, secretary-treasurer.  Directors: Robert Waddell, W.  P. Kellett, E. B. Saltwell, Jas.  Emeny, Wm. Mack, H.L.Pierce,  Wm. Matheson, W. T. Marshall,  J. Graham, Wm. Hay hurst, Capt.  Wallace and Arthur Hayhurst.  The sum of $50 was appropriated to the Secretary in recognition of the splendid service he  had rendered the Institute for  the past year.  The sum ofi$25 was appropriated to the Northern Okanagan  Poultry Association to assist in  the Winter Poultry Show to be  held in Enderby Jan. 28-29-30.  Wm. Matheson was elected  representative to the Central Farmers' Institute.  Resolutions were passed instructing the representative to  ask the Central Institute to en-  endeavor to get the following  legislation from the Provincial  government: 'Increase in the  coyote bounty to $5 per scalp; reduction in the cost of stumping  powder to $4.20 per keg, and an  amendment to the game law,  allowing settlers and owners of  farms to kill grouse on their  premises.  The delegate was also instructed to endeavor to have the present annual fall fairs held in rotation, so as to enable men appointed by the government to do  the judging; also to have the  present Spallumcheen district  divided.  It was reported from Hull car  that the people of Salmon River  and Deep Creek were erecting a  hall for public purposes, and it  was proposed to give the hall for  the Institute meetings . in that  locality. To assist in the proposition the Institute set apart $25  to be donated to the building  fund.  Little Gordan English was out  for a walk the other day with  his pa, and Jack Frost nipped his  nose. Returning home he said  impressively to his mother, "Oh  mamma, it's awful cold; it's 10  inches below zuro right now."  And it was, too. 4  WALKERrS WEEKLY,  r:  u  a  Tirsj���������������������������.T1** ��������������������������� u 'tt������������������  ._���������������������������  PRO BONO PUBLICO     ^  _z���������������������������_zz^  IIZ><__X  (Correspondents will please be brief and avoid  .personalities.

And  v  ecause  To the Editor Walker's Weekly:  Allow me a word of comment on  your editorial of last week dealing with the question of local option. Any discussion of this question from" any point of view should  be welcomed by all, but some  things in your editorial seem open  "to question.  Your chief complaint seems to  be against the use of force or  coercion. We may ask, is there  any law without the principle of  coercion? A protective tariff .is  enforced against the product of  almost half the citizens of a country, but they must submit and  pay the tax. * Railways and other  undertakings are subsidized and  those oppposed have to help and  pay the bill. Socialists and others  take exception to the present order, and they must submit even  if they disapprove. Are laws  against murder, theft, slander,  social vice, etc., not coercion? Is  any law worth a place on a statute book which does not have the  power to coerce? Is the licence  law to which you give preference  not as truly force or coercion as  the law you denounce? It is not  a question as to  whether or not  crx] ruled cut of a i  they cheese to go to church? I  will not defend \.ho idea of a government or council raising a little revenue and a big expenditure out of the licence system,  where the" licence law today is-It is indefensible in principle and  properly enforced to what spirit: foolish in policy. But how far  in a community is that enforce- the "liquor man is taxed to pay  ment due? Mv observation in i what the church ought to pay,"  British Columbia has been that!but is exempt? How much are  in places where the moral force ; the taxes on  Enderby hotels m-  ! creased by the exemption ^ of  churches? I have no objection  to church taxation.    But there is  on  which is  behind the movement  for further  re������������������  iction  CIO  been  wanting so the licence law has  been left to its friends. That  law has been the most violated  and discredited law of the conn  no compromise of   principle  < v. '1 ll rr-v r-' 1  ill    ��������������������������� i. 1 ;v u   i .'vviu!..

When  passing through Enderby, Mr.  DeHart, pointing to the vast acres  of uncultivated land about the  town, said there was no reason  in the world why we could not  produce as good apples as those  he won prizes on, and he particularized the varieties he was most  successful with.  To fruit men with little experience this will be a valuable  pointer. All that is necessary is  to study.the winners at the Spokane Apple Show.  Mr. DeHart won the following  prizes. Note the varieties of apples:  For best 10 boxes Jonathans���������������������������1st  prize,  a  fruit farm worth   $2,000,  a  medal, and 25 0 trees.

It   certainly  pays to enter a competition of this  khKi���������������������������provided you are able to> "deliver the goods."  So much for the varieties.

The Canadian Northwest  north.; That country is being  developed, ahd.be it remembered  that the climate of Alberta and  Saskatchewan is the climate of  Germany, and that Edmonton  and Berlin have the same climate  and latitude. The Mackenzie Valley will grow finer wheat and  more of it than the Missouri Valley or the Arkansas, just as the  Valley of  the Neva will grow it,  Says the Wall-street Journal, ! and for   ]jice  causes.    However  a leading American p..iper: ! unpieasant these facts may be to  an American, it is folly to blind  one's self to the fact, that the  Canadian Northwest is destined  to supply   beef and   pork,   and  "The Canadian Northwest is  now drawing annually 103,030 of  America's-best farm population  away to the virg'.n lands to tin  i cheese and butter, and bread to  ! the world.

Says he: -  For almost a quarter of a century I have been hunting, trapping and prospecting. In turn  I have been on all the streams  running eastward down the Rockies, from Montana north to the  Slave Lakes and from Elk River  in British Columbia to the Skeena  River in the far north. The life  of a prospector or a trapper is a  hard, rough, lonely and dangerous one.  In the winter season he is out  about eight months all alone,  never seeing a human being unless he runs across a brother  trapper. In the year 1907 I left  civilization in October and did  not return till the following May.  During that long period of lonli-  ness my only companions were  two fox terriers. These two animals have been my friends -for  -vears-and-Lfind-them.the. smart-.  remains,  one may find the last of myself,  for as one partner said to another,  after a life of wandering together:  I am ffoing-. partner, going; I have heard the call,  Tis the summons that must come some day to  one and all.
