 Enderby, B. C, November 18, 1909  AND       WALKER'S       WEEKLY  Vol. 2; No. C8; Whole No. 90  Political Outlook  as Seen from a Distance  A FORECAST  .- The    Winnipeg    Saturday .Post has  the followingnin its last issue:  "In British  Columbia the  Opposition���������������������������following    the    example of oppositions  elsewhere���������������������������refuses  to  learn  a lesson and blindly opposes the government's policy, chiefly because it is  the government's policy.   If that opposition would look over thc history  of other   oppositions   in    Canada, it  would probably be able to see what  fate the 25th   of   this month has in  store for it���������������������������for every opposition in  Canada that has opposed a progressive    railway   policy,  has been overtaken by crushing defeat whenever an  appeal to the country was made. * *  The greatest    handicap   that British  Columbia has labored under-for years  is that caused by a lack of railway  development.    In. such circumstances,  the wisest possible policy that could  be adopted is just such a policy as  ,,that. which Premier McBride has announced. *    *    *   And to secure such  development the McBride Government  does not   assume   a   cent's worth of  real liability.    It merely guarantees  thc C.  N. R.  bonds.    * * *   All this  loud opposition   that   we hear every  time   a   government   makes    one of  these    guarantees   is    so- much wind  running 'riot���������������������������nothing more.   '   How  out of touch with real public opinion  such oppositionists are is to be found  in the ejection returns in every province in Canada    where   the guarantees have been given."  Yellowhead which will give them a  grade favorable enough to permit of  them entering into reasonable competition with the C. P. R. Mr. Oliver asks the people of British Columbia to build a line without terminals,  without traffic arrangements, thro' a  country deemed impossible by the  Great Northern, right in the teeth of  the policy laid down by his leader,  Laurier, who says that government-  owned roads are not sound business  KETTLE VALLEY RAILWAY  M'BRIDE ON SIR IIIBBERT  "British Columbia existed and  flourished long before Sir Hibbert  Tupper came here. British Columbia  will flourish long after he is gone. I  leave the people of British Columbia  to deal with him," commented Premier McBride at North Bend a few  nights ago.  "The only thing Liberals have to  hang any kind of a case on is the  resignation of two of my colleagues  from my cabinet. While they were  with me they were classed as incompetents and fools by the Liberals,but  ^nowHhey=have=tui_ied=r"ound^and"r.u<.  Mr. Pulton and Captain Tatlow to  the skies. I promised the people of  British Columbia that when I had a  sound and business-like railroad  policy I would bring it down, and,  having secured that policy, I felt it  my duty to present it to thc people,  even if every member of my cabinet  left me. On this policy I am ready  to stand or fall.  "They are important policies. They  "arc white" men's policies, and will  build up a white man's country. If  you agree that the country should go  ahead and prosper, then you must  agree that that prosperity lies in the  construction and extension of the  Canadian Northern lines. It will  give competition, and competition  will give new life to British Columbia."  The Premier ridiculed John Oliver's  statement that he would build a  government line through the Hope  mountains, if no railroad company  would do so.  "I traveled up to Hedley the other  day with Mr. Costello of the Great  Northern," said the Premier, "and I  was fortunate enough to meet Mr.  Kennedy, chief engineer of the V., V.  & E. This line has stopped at  Princeton because Mr. Kennedy, after  seven years of 'careful survey, has  been unable to get a better gradient  through the Hope mountains than  two and a half per cent. The Great  Northern is seeking some other route.  Jim Hill is hesitating; Mackenzie &  Mann say they cannot get a business  grade over this toboggan slide; the  C. P. R. found it inadvisable; yet  John Oliver and Five O'clock Mc-  Gonnell rush in where experienced  railroad men fear to tread and say  Hope mountain route is practicable.  "We want a railroad that will give  us competition. To get competition,  we must get a grade; and the route  chosen by the Canadian Northern is  the only portal to the coast from the  "With regard to the Kettle Valley  railway bills," said Premier McBride  in a recent interview, "I have received nothing but commendation  from the country which the road will  traverse. Two hundred and seventy  miles or thereabouts are to be built  under the bargain. The Coast, Nicola Valley, Southern Okanagan, Similkameen, and the Boundary country,  are to receive direct benefit.  "The cost per annum to the province for the next forty years is $22,-  500 per year, as against which we  shall collect from the road $13,500 in  taxes, leaving the net charge against  our treasury of $9,000 per "annum.  "People of this province should remember that apart altogether from  the. tremendous progress -.and prosperity which must follow "the completion of the C. N. R. and the Kettle Valley line, the millions of dollars that are to be spent in construction of the mileage to be built,  approximately 875 miles. This will  do a great deal towards stimulating  the general growth of the country.  The railways will be obliged to purchase all supplies to be used from  British Columbia merchants, as far  as the market will permit.  "And, better still, the work and  labor to be performed is to be done  by our own people, and that at fair  wages.   There must be no Asiatics."  -     IN THE LOCAL FIELD  Mrsi C. S. Handcock was called to  Chicago the past week, to the bedside of her father, who is "very low..  English Grand Opera Singers in K.  of P. Hall, November 30th.

Several of our young men have got  together and installed a gymnasium  in the partly burned Bell block, formerly occupied by A. Pulton.  Interesting Meeting  of the Board of Trade  A very interesting meeting of the  Enderby Board of Trade was held- in  the Board of Trade rooms last Friday evening. There was a good attendance and"' much interest evinced  by those present. .     _.  The name of George Robinson was  proposed for admission to membership by Mr. Gibbs, and he was duly  elected."  A summary of the business conducted by the Associated Boards of  Trade was read, and filed.

This is perfectly fair,  and as it should be. He also wishes  the question to be taken out of the  realm of provincial politics, so that  the opportunity is given for a full  and fair expression of thc people's at  titude towards this /question. Thisis  also as it should be."  LIBERAL MEETING  In K. of P. Hall, Saturday, Nov.  20th, at 8 p. m. Candidate Mayor  DeHart, of Kelowna, and I.. d McDonald, will address the meeting.

The cold snap of the past few days  made splendid skating on the backwater channel of tlie river, and large  crowds enjoyed the sport until the  heavy snowfall of. Tuesday night  covered the ice.  the coast.  Thc Enderby Orange Lodge was  visited last week by L. D. McCall,  County Master " of Orange Associations, who is' making his official  visit to lodges in this district.  Aid. Peel promises to bring in a  by-law making it compulsory to keep  the "snow swept off the sidewalk iu  front of every home and place of  business on the principal streets of  the town.  Messrs. Geo. Heggie, R. Waddell  and P. Murphy, were elected as directors "of the ' Vernon "Agricultural" Society at the last meeting of that' organization, to represent the interests  of Enderby and district.  Dr. H. B. Findley, dintist, of Van:  couver, intends to visit Enderby in  about ten dnys. Parties wishing  dental work can consult Dr. Findley,  at the King. Edward Hotel. Further  notice of exact date of visit will be  given shortly.  The MacRaye-McGuire entertainers,  who have been advertised to appear  in K. of P. Hall to-morrow night,  have been compelled to cancel all  dates until after the elections, owing  to their halls being taken from then;'  by campaign speakers. They will appear in Enderby sometime in January. .  Don't let    anything   interfere with  -your-���������������������������hearing^thc-=.amous=-Englislv  Opera Singers, in K.  of P. Hall, on I  the nigh I of November 30th.   This is'  the first time a musical organization  of such    note   has   been   secured for  Enderby,    and   all   who    can should  take advantage of the opportunity of  seeing them.  Dr. George, Privincial veterinary  surgeon, is visiting Enderby and vicinity-on an inspection tour of the  milch cows in this vicinity.. He inspected the Wright herd last Friday  and gave them an Al certificate, and  now Daddy Wright places his milk  certificate along side of his hotel license, and declares hc has tlie purest  lacteal fluid and the, purest pure  that nature and man can make.  The Ladies ' Guild of St. George's  Church, at a meeting held last Friday at the home of Mrs. G. R. Lawes  presented Miss Gibbs, thc retiring  president, a very appropriate trophy  of their esteem, in view of her early  departure for the Old Country; also  to Miss Cobb, the retiring secretary.  Mrs. V. C. Brimacombe was elected  to fill the presidency, and Mrs. -H.  W.  Keith the secretary-treasurership.  BIG IMPROVEMENTS PLANNED  The A. R_ Rogers Lumber Company  is planning several important improvements for the coming season.  The open refuse burner will be done  away with, and a modern water-  jacket burner installed. All of the  small buildings now lining the river  bank from the Company's blacksmith  shop tp Cliff street, will be torn  down, and replaced by a very large ^'^  and the most modernly-equipped dry  kiln. Other buildings of an important nature will be erected on the  Company's property for warehouse  and storeage purposes.  seconded by Mr. Holtby, it was de  cided that the same regulations  , should.be asked for against all nurser-  ; ies, whether coast or inland, and asking that a fumigation plant be established at some .convenient point  in the Okanagan.  . The matter of a wagon road to  Trinity Valley was brought up by  Secretary Taylor, who produced considerable correspondence which he had  received in the matter. Letters from  Mr. C. Dubois Mason, Victoria, who  had been" interested in the negotiations, by Mr. Taylor, gave very .encouraging news. In one of his letters  iMr. Mason said: "I have to. day (23d  ! October) seen the Premier on' the  subject and, have shown him a number of photographs of the meadows  on my brother's land, in which he  was much interested.- He is.ready, to  take up the matter again personally  if we can give him data and figures  showing that the work can be done  for considerably less than the estimate."  "Mr. Cooke, of the Falls, Enderby,  wrote me on the 9th inst on this subject: 'The bridge seems doubtful, as  the Government engineer gave his estimate for a bridge one-fourth mile  long and they say It is too expensive  but' he must have chosen a "place  where there are meadows both sides  of the river. I know uf several places  and one in particular, where the river  is only 75 to 100 yards_across,_with_  =gobd*blf)iks_on=1both"^si_esT'"'=  In view of the assurance given by  the Premier that he would take the  matter'up again if he could be shown  the Board decided to appoint Mr. F.  H. Barnes, the government bridge  builder, to make a thorough investigation and report, so that the Board  can go before the Government with a  definite plan and showing thc cost of  the structure required.  Mr. W. Allan _Dobson, briefly laid,  before the Board a suggestion that  a scries of business lectures be given  by the Board during thc winter season. The matter was discussed at  some length, and laid over until the  next meeting of the Board for final  action.  Thc matter of the railway company blocking Cliff street, and making flying shunts at the peril of life  and bodily harm of pedestrians at  Cliff and Mill streets, w-.s brought  up, and a motion carried, that the  secretary be instructed to write Mr.  Kilpatrick requesting that he take  up the matter and sec that thc regulations governing switching at street  crossing!" be complied wi.th.  Mr. Rosoman introduced tho matter of securing a resident dentist for  Enderby, and it was .decided to insert an advertisement in one of the  coast papers, setting forth the advantages of the district for a capable man.  opportunity   of   getting their names  enrolled.   It is   now up to the property owner, vho has become a property owner since the last assessment,  to have his name enrolled-.   Any failure to do so in  the time stated by -  law will    deprive    one    of a vote in  the next municipal election.     If you  have bought city   property since the  last assessment   was   made, ssy this  year, ydu\ must   appear    before   the ���������������������������  City Clerk and make statutory dec-.  laration to   that   effect   and he' will  place your name on the voter's list.  You must   do   it   this   month, next  month will be too Into.   The" husband  can make   such    declaration   for the  wife, or the seller of a property may  make such   declaration    for the purchaser,   but somebody must make it  and hand it to the City Clerk on or-  before the_30th November.

K. P. DANCE A SUCCESS  If there is one thing the Enderby  Knights of Pythias do better than  another, it is dance. Or perhaps it  were better' to say that they giv.  good dancesL__and_ see that all _who_  attend-th"enf-_njoy", hemseives. "Their  annual ball given last , Friday evening was an exceptionally enjoyable  affair. Quite a crowd attended from  Armstrong. There were 60 ladies and  50 gentlemen on the floor, and J. C.  English was master of ceremonies.  Mr. Lemke and Mrs. Mowat furnished thc music, which added very  much to the success of the affair.  The. refreshments served by the Pythian Sisters excelled, even..the .viands-  served on former occasions by this  worthy organization, and more than  satisfied the large crowd of happy  dancers.  "AS  YOU LTKE IT."  ARE YOU   A    PROPERTY OWNER?  Sweets for the sweet at the  bazaar, also afternoon tea.  Have you purchased property in  Enderby since the last assessment  made? Is your name on the  votor's list? These are questions  which you should answer to yourself,  and if you are not sure, make sure  by interviewing the City Clerk. And  you must do it this month, if you  want your name to appear on the  next voter's list. Last month, the  month of October, license-holders  and   non-property   holders,    had the  We 'arc in receipt of a communication from the ofllcc of C. P. Walker,  of the Walker Theatre, Winnipeg!  stating that his representative will  be here in a few days to interview a  number of our leading citizens relative to a production of "As You Like  It," which Manager Walker is sending through the West. As this is the  most delightful of all the Shakespearian comedies, and is to be given  by practically an all-star cast with a  most elaborate scenic and costume  equipment, it is hoped that arrangements can be concluded for an engagement here. If thc opinion of  those interviewed is favorable, and  sufficient interest is shown, a subscription list will be circulated and  if enough patronage is assured tbe  production will appear here in the  near future. it,  WHAT BENGOUGHWILL DO  He will make cartoons of prominent citizens.

Whether lhe voyage will be made  on board a warship or by a specially-chartered liner is nol settled.  AN EX-CONSUL'S VIEWS.  In a recent number of The Outlook (Now York), "An Ex-Consul"  contributes a striking article ou  "The -Building of a, Nation in  South Africa." At the present moment tho English-speaking world  is particularly interested ia the  progress of the bill now before the  j-Jritish Houso of Commons for the  federation of Cape Colony, Natal,  Orange River Colony, and thc  Transvaal, and ".Ex-Consul's" article has- therefore a timely interest. In part, after a brief reference fo the Boer war and the events  leading lo the decision for federation, hc says:'  AN UNPARALLELED SIGHT.  Statesmen in England spoke open-  ��������������������������� ly of .the danger which the sullen  Boers would be to British dominion. Il was predicted that several  generations would pass before thc  enmity of the Dutch would be wiped  away. Yet other statesmen decided upon an apparently-foolhardy  policy, and those, being for.ihc time  iu power, were able to-carry out  their "plans. They deliberately  gave the privilege of representative  institutions to. .tho colonies where  the-Boers," smarting under -defeat.,  were in tho majority; and so the  world was treated to the unparalleled eight of a conquered race having fill 1 legislative powers in a country from which the army of .invasion had not withdrawn.   It certain-  - ly was a hazardous experiment,  nnd in ninety-nine cases out of a  hundred it would have failed.' That  it not only did not fail, but was  completely    satisfactory,    is atlri-  . butable lo thc very fierceness of  patriotism whieh was supposed to  be the chief obstacle in tho path of  peace. Had tho Boers been a whit  less devoted to their land and a  whit more devoted to their individual ambitions tho exporiment would  have been a failure, and would probably have led to a countless number   of    "unpleasantnesses"    here  dents of South Africa have in view  in. promoting a scheme of federation is far less subtle than that  which occupies lhe minds of thc  Dutch, .uritain naturally desires to  havo every one of its colonial possessions iu the most prosperous  condition possible, and it is evident  that South Africa a federated  country is infinitely preferable to  South Africa a disconnected group  o; States. Thc ordinary English  settler lias no dislike for his Dutch  neighbor, and is quite ready to  make a friend of him. Thc war is  over, and both sides fought well.  It is not diflicult for one of the conquering race lo be magnanimous.  3. url.hcri.oT ���������������������������, thc Briton always remembers the commercial aspect of  every question, and he sees that  the business conditions of the whole  country will be.grcafcly improved by  tlie union of colonics.  INFLUENCE OF   THE COLONIALS.  There is a third factor in the case,  and one lhat is often forgotten,  but n'ercvtheless is of great importance. This is the element "which  is called "Colonial"���������������������������that is, peo-  flc who wore born and bred in tho  colonies. In South Africa these Colonial people are generally very  pronounced in their loyalty to  Great Britain, and at times they do  not hesitate to speak in anything  but glowing terms of their Dutch  neighbors; but they and thc Boers  understand one another. They  have fought side by side against  black foes, and they have fought  face to face- Therefore they have  a wholesome respect for each  other's valor, and afc heart they  have a great liking one for thc  other. Moreover, the Colonials  have intermarried with thc Boers  so often that it is almost impossible  lo draw the line between thc races.  Therefore the colonial may be considered as thc intermediary between  lhe two races, and may exorcise a  vast power for harmony. ' Hc can  smooth the way to union as no one  else can smooth it, and the comprehension of this truth is gaining prevalence every day. Afc the close of  the war the Colonial was more bitter in his treatment of the Boers  than was any Englishman, but that  phase of affairs soon passed, and  to-day ,the Colonial understands  that it is his duty as, well as his  privilege to take a prominent part  in thc federation of all South African interests. .  GOVERNANCE OF NATIVES.  Aside "from th������������������ commercial and  sentimental reasons for a South  African federation is one that is "f  ban thronged the hall at the opening ceremony, and watched with  deep interest thc arrival of the men  whom the war had made famous.  "BOTHA ! GENERAL BOTHA !"  The proceedings were brief and  formal, and the delegates turned to  leave the platform, when suddenly  the whole crowd in the hall and in  thc corridors of the buildings setup a erv :  "Botha! General Botha!"  I never heard a more hcarlfclI  acclamation. This General Botha  was commander-in-chief of thc Boor  forces in the war, and was the last  ilo surrender���������������������������and Durban is the  most British (own in lhe country.  There you have a picture wlucn  shows a reconciliation without an  equal in history.  TIiIO ROADS OF MOROCCO.  nd  Tribes Plough Them  Up Now  Sow Grain on Them.  There arc two roads from Tangier to Fez, the one passing through  Alcazar and the other following thc  seashore via Larache. The former  is the more direct and except during thc rainy season is usually chosen by. the traveller, but the beach  road lo Larache possesses many  attractions and'you arc -=able to  spend a night at tho old Portuguese  settlement of Arzila, which is a  model of the fortresses of two centuries ago.  No one has ever yet measured accurately thc exact distance which  separates Tangier from Fez, and I  hope the next person lo make the  journey will take a bicycle wheel  with a cyclometer attached to settle the vexed question once and for  all. Roughly I put thc distance afc  185 lo ]������������������)0 miles, and it is usual to  tuke from six to eight days oh the  ru_d, thus limiting thc daily march  to twenty-live miles, which is quite  sufficient if you want to shoot on  arriving in camp.  The journey can be done comfortably in six days if your animals are  not too heavily loaded, and 1 have  ridden from Fez to'Larache in three  days during the'heat of August, but  it is an experiment not to be recommended.  Except during the months of  July, August and September thc  climate of Morocco is temperate and  pleasant. Thc early spring is, however, the' best season for a journey, as the tropical rains which arc  likely to overwhelm you in lhe late  autumn and -early winter have  ceased. The rivers arc serious obstacles during the rainy season, as  there arc no bridges and no ferries  EAftS ON THEIR LEGS.  more1 urgent importance  than  all  except close to the coast; and con-  thc others.    This is   the    question   soquenlly il the fords are impracticable you are likely to be hung up  on the banks of. a river for a very  onies. But because they loved their  land, and thought only of its welfare, they accepted the gift that  was bestowed upon them and set  themselves to work lo make good  the ravages of thc war and t-o establish thc country upon a lasting  basis of prosperity.  DUTCH ARE NOT DISLOYAL  " " Not long ago lbrought'tothc notice of one of the foremost members of lhe Transvaal Government  a statement lo the effect that tho  Dutch people were only ostensibly  loyal and that when the chance occurred the whole nation would rush  to arms again and renew thc struggle for independence.  "I have seen several assertions  of this kind," hc replied, "but do  you truly think that we arc.mad'?  \Vhafc can wc possibly gain by further resistance. That is thc question which people should ask them-  -.sclvcs before they make such slale-  r.ie its. England has given us a degree of independence for which wc  dared not- hope, and I assure you  that we appreciate thc gift. Of  course wc shall always treasure the  memory of the old regime, but that  will nol interfere with our making  thc best of tho new. There is absolutely no foundation for believing that there is any underhand  F.ohciuc for re-establishing the old  republics."  That is the opinion of all thc  leaders of what may be called the  ���������������������������Young Dutch party, and they aro  the men whose word will sway thc  minds of ninety per cent, of the  people. Ifc is simply an instance of  rapid recognition of fact and earnest desire t-o do thc best that may  be done to save their beloved country from further distress and ruin.  vi'F/WS OF BRITISH RESIDENTS  Tl>. idea which thc British resi-  of the governance of the" natives  who in that country- arc to the  white people as ten is to one. For  tlxr'most part, tho blacks arc a  peaceful and harmless race in these  days, but no man can tell at what  minute trouble may occur. Rebellion may spring up without an instant's warning, and when that  happens ifc is imperative lhat all  branches of the - paramount race  shall stand shoulder to shoulder  against a common peril. If calm  and contentment   aro   lo   prevail  n nd=t-he rc^rhroughou fe^fc-li e^n e-u - c ol-=ramo ng-=tho-=n ati-v-cs=-=a nd=b-y=mean a  cf these insurrection can be-set afc  a far distance���������������������������there must be uniform and intelligent legislation and  execution of the laws throughout-  all the land. Thc conflict of dif-  ffering laws in different Slates sets  a premium upon discontent among  the natives. The native question  is the most serious problem before  thc people, of ..South Afrien,_now  and at all limes, and great expectations arc cherished of lhe benefits which w-'ll accrue to native administration under a Federal Government.  THE SPIRIT OF AMITY.  It would be impossible to Iind a  bettor illustration of thc  spirit of  .unity which is abroad in South Af-  rrca than was afforded hy the recent conference of delegate:-;, met at  Durban, Natal, to discuss the pros-  pocts'of federation and lo produce  the scheme whicli has now been accepted  by the  Parliaments of  thc  Transvaal,   Orange  River   Colony,  Cape of Good Hope, and Natal. Thc  Conference met in the Town Han.  and wa.s under the   presidency of  Sir Henry de   Villicrs, a   man of  Dutch  and  Huguenot    extraction.

There arc no regular roads in Morocco and the tracks arc often very  difficult to trace and vary constantly because thc tribes have thc curious custom of ploughing right over  them and sowing their grain thereon.

That is Where an Ant's Grow and  He Mas Six of Them.  Strange as it may seem an ant has  at least six cars. Aside from their  multiplicity they are located in just  about thc queerest place imaginable���������������������������on the legs. They seem deaf  to all sounds made by the vibration  of tlie air, but detect thc slightest  possible vibrations of solid material.  This is supposed lo be in their  advantage, in that such things as  approaching footsteps tell more of  tlie possibility of danger than such  sounds as are transmitted through  thc air.  So sensitive are Iheir fecfc, says  St. Nicholas, that they detect tho  impact of a small birdshofc dropped  on the table from a height of about  six inches and aboufc fourteen feet  distant from an artificial nest placed at thc other end of the table.  As curious as arc their' cars,  their noses are even more extraordinary. As-the ants spend most of.  their time in the dark, they must  depend "largely on scent for their  guidance, and in consequence have  quite an elaborate array of noses,  each for a special purpose.    -  Miss Adelc Fickle believes that  their antennae arc composed of a  number of noses strung along in a  line. Still more strange is the  fact that each of these noses can  smell   only a special thing.  The nose on the tip or first joint  of the antenna it is said, is for recognizing thc odor of the home; thc  one on the second point is to recognize relatives. The third nose is  the pathfinder, and .without it the  poor ant cannot follow a trail and  soon gets hopelessly lost. Thc nos-  c-s on the fourth and fifth joints arc  for recognizing the eggs and immature ants in thc nest.  No creature is more tidy than an  ant, who cannot tolerate the presence of dirt on her body. These  little creatures actually use a number of real toilet articles in keeping themselves clean. No less an  [authority than Dij. McCook .says  their toilet articles consist of  coarse and fine toothed"combs, hairbrushes, sponges and even washes  and soap.- Their saliva is their liquid soap, and their soft tongues  arc their sponges.  Their combs, like their-cars arc  fastened to their legs.' They.stop  for a hasty clean-up. whciv fchey get  dirty.- But a more leisurely toilet  is made when they feel in'a loafing  mood, and they then,lend a helping  hand to one another in thc process.

C. ji  The Grand Porks Sun, a daily evening paper, which ever since its inception nine years ago has supported  the Liberal cause, has come out boldly in support of the McBride government, in tlie following editorial, the  editor gives some sound reasons for  so doing.   He says:  "After a careful comparison of the  policies on which thc McBride Govern  ment and thc opposition appeal for  the votes of the electorate in thc  present campaign, The Sun has arrived at the conclusion that the people of British Columbia should sustain the Government.  "Loyalty to a.political party is an  admirable trait, but loyalty to the  province and the district is better.  Premier McBride's railway policy is  vigorous. It will do more to develop  British Columbia than any other law  that can hc enacted.  "We  have been clamoring for such  a policy for   the   past   six or seven  years    and    to    antagonise    it    now  would  be    to   repudiate    our former  convictions and    to prove traitorous  to the best interests of the commun-  _ \ ity.   Grand Forks needs the road  to  jj | Franklin   camp.   The  future  prosper-  |' ity of the city to a great extent depends on its early construction.   The  people of the Boundary and the Kootenay need the Coast-Kootenay road.  The method    of    reaching    the coast  cities is now too slow and expensive.  ���������������������������_- g_>er______*������������������___������������������ wtv_rcm _*������������������*= __--'ca  1  For Fall  Planting  Bulbs from best European and  Japan growers.

HENRY, Vancouver,B.C^t/  ;>r__ ; Thc people of the coast need the con-   '. ncction with the    Canadian Northern  i because railway competition is thc  .' life of present-day commercialism.  ; Tlie terms of agreement with the rail-  ; way company are not exorbitant and  will work no undue hardships on the  people. It may be argued that the  Great Northern is building to the  coast without a bonus. But the road  is taking its own time. At the rate  of progress it has made during thc  past four years, the completion of  the line to -the coast will not be near  the present generation. There are  other good planks in thc Government's platform These will be reviewed later.  "The  local   Conservative  candidate  is a gentleman whose ability is recall  over   the   province.     He I  stands well with the Government and I  if elected the interests of the district I  will be well   looked   after.     Against j  the Liberal candidate  we have noth  ing to say.     We   understand  very good man,    a    man   of  ���������������������������a fair    dealer,   a   square player of  politics, and a son devoted to the interests    of    British   Columbia,  first,  last  and   always.       His   administration has been capable, honest and enterprising.   He took oflice at a time  when   the   finances    of   the province  Avere in a critical condition.   He delayed announcing    his railway policy  until the financial embroglio was at  rest.   Then he   comes   to   the people  | with a clean-cut,    comprehensive, co-  i operative   policy   that   everyone can  ! understand.       He can  be trusted  to  \ carry it through.  i    As   to   his   railway   policy,    is   it  !strange that it is opposed by the C.  \V. R., the G. T. I.   and the G. T. P.?  ; Their    opposition    is    most natural,  I dictated as it is by their self-interest.  | All the pandered advocates of the C.  .'P.  R.   and the  G.  T.   R.   now  abuse  | the McBride railway policy.   Richard  gains by  the    enemies he has made.  Then the guarantee of $35,000 a mile  is much less than what it will cost  to build a mile of the road.   Well-informed railway men say the McBride  railway bargain is  a better bargain  than the Liberals drove with the G.  T.  P.     Unalterably  opposed to railway grants as the World is, yet the  circumstances   in    British    Columbia  may be pleaded   as    extenuation for  Premier McBride.    -And .besides, the  west is west and the east is east. As  to the   prophesied   deficit,   this need  not worry even the C. P. Ri and G.  T.   P.,   for any deficit in  revenue  is  guaranteed by the C. N, R.      Hence  | the province need not feel fearful of  | its commitment, even if for the first  ' two years or so   under    the railway  agreement, there should be a deficit.  ��������������������������� From' this    distance,    Premier McBride looks  like a man  on  his feet.  He is British    Columbia.       Premier  Whitney was maligned for his power  policy.     Yet Premier Whitney is Ontario.

No province is more jealous of its  geographical distinction, no province  has more individuality, personality,  soul, than British Columbia. It has  long been the plaything of certain  ' corporations grown -fat with federal  ; favor, But British Columbia has  now reached man-size, and its personality is asserting itself.  | This is shown in the railway policy  ; of Premier McRride, wlio typifies the  British Columbia individuality. It is  significant that hc is the first native  son of British Columbia to rise to  thc premiership, not, it must be ad-  mittod, without creating chagrin  umong some not to the manor bom.  His rise is due to his native abilities.  He is gifted with the magnetism that  buckles followers to him. He lias  shown his fitness to man-handle the  affairs of his native province. His  opponents have not always gone from  the field victorious. Dick McBride  gives an account of himself every  time.  In his recent railway policy he has  focused the need of an unattached  railway for British Columbia. The  full-blown and full-blooded C. P. R.  that has manipulated British Columbia through many tortuous years, is  overlooked. British Columbia thinks  its interests no longer lie in posing  as the goldcn-egged-goose for a railway that ramifies two dominions.  Nor is British Columbia in love with  the federally-fed G. T. P., that aims  to force Prince Rupert on nature, and  that connects up with thc G. T. R.,  which is as much a part of the United States as it is of Canada. Hence  the Canadian Northern Ry. comes into the McBride railway policy as an  unattached line, distinctively Canadian and absolutely necessary to the  development of British Columbia.  Premier McBride's life record shows  him to be a man of sterling integrity  Until you have seen the District  from Mara to Enderby.  Come here first or  not matter which,  last, it does  but come.

Editor The Enderby Press:  WHAT should    happen along the  Spallumcheen !  To my mind, sir, a great deal  should happen���������������������������sufficient to revolutionize at least' the North end of this  Valley, if not the whole of it.  My scheme is as follows:  The city of Enderby, as well as all  the territory extending east to Mabel  Lake, north to Shuswap Lake, northwest to Salmon Arm (including Salmon Arm and District), west as far  as Grand Prairie, should incorporate  and join in with the Armstrong, or  Spallumcheen municipality, and thus  form a strong combination for borrowing and influential purposes for  the development of this territory-  second to none in the province for  agricultural purposes and for power  to develop same.  They should then take a' record on  the waters of the Spallumcheen for  both irrigation and power purposes,  as well as for domestic use. They  should ask the Government���������������������������through  the member now to be elected���������������������������to  commit themselves to the scheme,  during the current election campaign.  The scheme is to flume the waters  of this mighty river, from a point  above the falls, near Mabel Lake,  and carry it ��������������������������� down along the north  side of the Valley, and from it water  all the arable land between the lake  and Enderby���������������������������the river running as it  does along the foot of the mountain  on the south side of the Valley-  then syphon part of this water south  and east of Mr. Fortune's and up  along the mountain as far south as  Larkin or the south end of the Armstrong municipality. This water  could also be syphoned at different  points to cover the bench lands on  the west side of the railway, all the  way from Enderby���������������������������or north of Enderby���������������������������to the north arm of the Okanagan Lake; the balance of the water  could be conveyed north ae far  Mara on both sides of the river.  In addition to this there could be a  drop of a hundred or more feet secured, a mile or so east of Enderby,  and from this drop sufficient power  could be secured to drive all necessary factories, electric lighting and  heating plants, tram lines, etc.,  throughout the Valley,, and thus  make it second in activity and beauty to none on this continent, or for  that matter on any other continent.  If this had been done sooner, and  the city of Vernon had joined in and  got her water supply thus, she might  have got an unlimited supply, with  water power to the bargain, for less  money; and it is quite possible that  she may need this source yet, some  hot, dry day.  As regards the cost^of this work, I  believe it would be a mere drop in  the bucket compared with the benefits  that would be derived, the very advertisement of such a scheme to be  carried out would bring more people  and money than would be needed to  complete the work, and the interest  on the money, borrowed at say 4 per  cent and for a term of 30 years,  would not be felt by those who par-  -ticipate-in-the-benefits-der-ived-there-  from in the future, for, instead of  saddling a load of debt upon those  who come after us, we are providing them with power to do things,  and thus make the whole valley prosperous and flowering, as well as cool  and comfortable. The sanitation of  such work would create the borrowing power necessary to carry it  through. It would be its own creator  as was the C. P. R., although when  the.C. P. R. was first talked of it  was looked upon by the general public as a scheme that would never pay  for the greese that would be needed  for the car wheels. All that this  undertaking needs is men with initiative, genius, courage and, foresight, and daring ability, and' they  can make the undertaking finance itself. There never was so much cheap  money waiting for such use, and God  knows we need it, and He is willing  that we should have it if we are willing to put our thinking to work, and  thus produce the needed action; and  do this ourselves instead of leaving  it for-Americans to do, or our own  children in the future. Let us be  like the old negro, who, after praying several nights for the Lord to  send him a chicken, but got none.  Then he changed his prayer to, "Oh,  Lord, send dis nigger afer a chicken,'  whereupon he got one forthwith. The  best way to do a thing, is to DO IT.  The Lord helps them only who help  themselves.  In conclusion, I want to say, let  the mayors of Enderby and Armstrong municipalities meet and look  into this matter forthwith, and bring  influence to bear on the member to  be elected in the comine: election. We  have the Price, and why not have the  benefits to accrue ?       S. POLSON.  suggestion that the Board inaugurate  a series of lectures on business subjects,, during the winter months,  which the general public should be invited to attend. Possibly owing to  the lateness of the hour at which the  subject was introduced, I do not feel  that the suggestion received the consideration which it deserves, and I  feel also that some expression of  opinion on the subject by the non-  member section of the public would  be of considerable value to the Board  in arriving at a decision as to the  desirability of establishing such a  course.  Perhaps the fault lay in my poverty of expression, but the fact remains  that I do not think the members  present ,properly understood the class  oi lecture or choice of subjects which  I suggest.  I do not suggest that anybody be  invited to give away trade secrets, as  one of my neighbors at the meeting  seemed to suppose, nor do I suggest  that subjects of merely passing or individual interest be discussed, but  the big', broad, general principles of  business, the foundation of the whole  machine, are of vital interest to  everybody in these days when the  element of chance has .been practically eliminated from business and the  whole basis of success is knowledge.  One man cannot know it all, that is  axiomatic, and he must indeed be  small-minded and woefully lacking in  ambition, who would try to deceive  himself into the belief that he has  nothing more to learn. I do not believe that a man's employees can  know too much about his business;  the more they know the more value  they are, and it pays, pays big, to  educate them; if it does not why do  some of the largest and most succes-  ful concerns to-day spend large sums  in regular courses of instruction for  their employees ?  In proportion as a man increases  the efficiency of his staff so he increases his. business; is this not true?  and if so, is it not the wise thing to  do ?  I mentioned at the Board meeting  a few subjects on which we all have  some more to learn, and I 1 .peat a  few of them here so that the public  may get some idea of the lectures I  propose: Take the subject of business correspondence, how few are able'  to compose a really good letter; put  life and action into it, vivid ideas,  personality; the self-same elements  that make for strength in personal  contact? Take advertising, look at  the valuable space absolutely, wasted  through sheer ignorance of the elementary rules of effective advertising. Take the broader questions of  personality, organization, administration, are these not all questions  on which we all have still a lot ^to  learn, and a knowledge of which  makes for success, and'ignorance thc  reverse ?  But I have said enough to outline  my object,, and will await with interest an expression of opinion from  that section of the public who recognise with me the immense value  which such a course as I suggest has  for everybody, .and particularly the  rising generation.  I am, sir, Yours very truly,  W. A. DOBSON.  Enderby, B. C, Nov. 13, 1909.  Steel Range  THE WHITE PLAGUE.  Fifty days till Christmas !

The characteristic of present-day  London, writes Mr. P. 11. Ditch-  fiekl in "Memorials of Old Lon-  do-," at whicli all foreigners marvel, is the amount of (raiiic in Hie  streets. In Elizabethan London  this characteristic existed in thc  chief highway, the river Thames.  It answered the need:, of commerce  and furnished the chief .means of  ti ansit.  The passcngcr-boals were generally described <as "wherries." and  were likened by Elizabethan traveller."; to thc gondolas of Venice.: for  instance, by Cory.'itI, in his '���������������������������'Crudities," who thought- Iho playhouses of Venice very beggarly compared with those of L.ndon, but admired the gondoliers because they  were "altogether as swift as our  rowers about London."  The maps of tho period reveal the  extraordinary number of "stars"  foj landing passengers along both  banks of lhe river, besides the numerous wharves for goods. John  .low, the author of the "Survey of  London," published in 1508, and  again in a second edition in 1C03,  describes the traffic on thc river.  "By the Thames,'''' he says, "all  kinds merchandise- be easily conveyed to London, the principal  storehouse and staple of all commodities within this realm. So that,  omitting -to speak of great ships  and other vessels of burthen, there  pertainoth lu  Westminster  wark, above the number as i.s supposed, of two thousand wherries  and other small boats, whereby  three thousand poor men at the  least be set on work aud maintained.^  Many of these watermen were old  sailors, who  J_v    ���������������������������<.    iiSJa  \/JcUSALQI\,riL*J>\CTJE,  rroamwi&mAU _u_ ~  Rad way's Ready  liof   caves   tho   wor  pains  in   from  on:  twenty minutni.

A French doctor, so one hears  from abroad, has recently established in Tourainc what is probably the "denier act" in rest cures.  He has a theory based on observations by Lumiere, of Lyons, that  people employed in work shops illuminated by red light because  nervous and were quickly tired, and  that these effects ceased wheu blue  light v/as substituted.  To carry out his theory the. doctor keeps his patients in a blue atmosphere; the glass in the window  is blue, and all thc decorations,  nnd furniture of the room is of the  .am. hue. At night the electric  light  shines   through   blue  globes.  is pure concentrated .beef.  Absolute silence is enjoyed throughout the establishment. His aim is  to make his patients spend as much  time as possible in sleep, waking  up at intervals to take food.  lie relics on physical agents,  such as fixing thc eyes on a bright  object or the monotonous ticking of  a clock, lo lull thc senses of.his patients.

Tn a certain manufacturing  town it is a. common thing for skilJ-  cci workmen to save sufiici.nL nna-  cy wherewith to build houses for  themselves. A great <.leal of vi/alry  exists among these men as to who  should have the best house, with  sometimes curious architectural  results.  A and B were two rivals, A having built a house, .13, whose turn  soon, afterwards came, dc.cvr_i.ncd  to outdo him. So hc called iu a  well-known    architect    to prepare  plans.

Many quaint marriage customs  still survive in some old English  and Scottish families. One notable  tradition of this sort still kept green  by- the Dukes of Athol and; their  heirs, says the London Lady's  Realm, is* that of the bridegroom  carrying the bride across the  threshold of Blair Castle, it being  in accord with an ancient tradition  that it is unlucky for thc first time  to walk in the ordinary way. This  is only one of the many quaint old  feudal customs that' arc observed  upon this estate, .which the Duke  of A tlio 11 holds from the crown by  one of those strange tenures which  are occasionally to be found-in  Great Britain. Upon fear of forfeiture the owner has to present  his sovereign with _ a white rose  whenever hc or she visits the castle.  Fame may come to a man  suddenly and go just as quickly.  WHY KICII FOLKS STEAL.  The Views   of a   Celebrated Paris  Physician.  Why do women shoppers who  have plenty of money steal things  which they do not need .  Others have dismissed .the phenomenon after giving it a name���������������������������  kleptomania ��������������������������� but a. celebrated  Paris physician and criminologist,  has gone straight to 120 of the fair  culprits for their own version of  the mattsr.  In Paris scarcely a day passes  when one of the courts has not to  consider the case of.a woman accused of theft at the "Bon Marche,  the Louvre, or the P.rintcmps.  The interest of these cases is increased- by the fact that" although  a few professional thieves and somo  persons who are driven to theft by  poverty may be among their number, by far the majority of these  shop thieves are ladies in easy circumstances. Some of them, indeed,  are rich. _  Here are some lead ing "facts from  the criminologist's investigations.  The women only thieve in the large  shops. The majority of them are  in easy circumstances, and many  of them are rich. Thc articles they  take are often of no use to them,  or they clo not need them, or they  have aheady in their homo similar  ai tides, and often more than they  require. - -   ���������������������������         --  Another point is that when arrested at the door of the shop they  readily distinguish from the rest of  their possessions thc stolen article,  and many of them admit possession  of it Avith an expression of relief,  as if they had felt burdened by its  weight.  Many persons, again, go a step  further. Anticipating their questioner, they accuse themselves of  former thefts committed in similar  circumstances, aud describe the  stolen articles they have in their  homes. '_"'.'  As a rule, the goods have not  been worn or used, and they frequently still bear the ticket of the  shop. Finally the same explanations are    given   in:   nearly every  ��������������������������� .'"It was too strong for me���������������������������I. lost  my head���������������������������I thought that everything  belonged to me���������������������������if I had not been  detected I should have gone on always-" .   ".".'''  Out of 120 cases which the criminologist has studied specially, eight  women were found to be suffering  fiom general paralysis' and three  from softening of the brain. Of  the remaining 109 cases no f^ycr  than 100 proved to be suffering  from disease.  Many a man has won out by his  inability to realize, that he was  whipped.  TREES THAT FIGHT FIRE  MUSHROOMS      WHICH     LIFT'  PAVING STONES.  Carnivorous    Properties    of Some  Plants Well Known, But  They arc Uncanny.  Thc common peanut, beloved_of  the small boy, and, under its alias  of "monkey-nut," grows in a peculiar way that is distinctly original Thc little plant sends up its  shoots, with the fruit, on the end  of a somewhat stiff stalk, and then,  before it ripens, the stem bends  over, and carefully pushes thc fruit  underground. As pigs are said to  he especially fond of those, it has  been suggested that thc plant does  this to hide its nuts from the porker's too inquisitive investigations;  but this can only be regarded as a  supposition.  There is a little mimosa that  grows in the tropics which is so shy  that, on being shaken or touched  it immediately closes up the dainty  fronds of its little leaves, and they  remain tightly closed until they  think they have given their disturber time to pass on and leave them  alone. Then they slowly and cautiously open out again until presently all the leaves aro  FLAT AS BEFORE.  In the-hot desert regions of Arizona and Mexico thc cactus stores  in its thick leaves every .drop of  water or. dew that it can get, so  that there is always a supply, not  for a rainy day, but fora dry season. In reality, the spines of the  .actus are the remnants of- its  leaves, and the so-called leavesare  the modified stalks.  In the waterless regions where  the Cactus grows it has very little  use for leaves, that would only  .ither away from thc hca't, "59-it  sreduces them to a" very effective  weapon against all enemies,. and  then swells the stalks to' make the  kind of water-tank it can best use  for its purposes. The best proof  of the efficiency of its' reasoning  is the fact that' it exists where very  little else can, save a few- plants  which have similarly adapted themselves to circumstances.  One of the queerest, things done  by any plant is the extraordinary  power shown by a common mushroom'when it wants'to grow up into the open. Tender and spongy,  the slightest thing will crush" its  fi agile substance. But this feeble  thing can, and sometimes does,    f  LIFT A PAVING STONE  that happens to impede'its movements towards the air and light.  By what remarkable faculty of engineering is this wonder accomplished 1  A plant that can lay a trap for  the wily fly, and can catch him and  cat him, is a plant that has acquired intelligence beyond its  sphere. Is it much wonder that old  travellers' talea tell of trees that  can catch men. The thing is not  so impossible on its own scale. But  it makes one feel uncomfortable tc  DEATH IH A S.BATCH.  Simple Injuries with Serious Rest.fts.  Morris Quatzam, an eleven years old  Windsor boy, has just died as the result of a  tcratch on his wrist. Poison entered tho  wound, which was caused by fallinj. offhij  bicycle, and despite the physicians, the boy  died. Such incidents as these���������������������������by no means  infrequent���������������������������ought to make people realise iho  danger lhat may lie even in the smallest  flc������������������h wound.  Take 1 simple illustration. When a. dirty  knife, a rusty needle, a splinter of dirty wood,  a barbed wire fence, or a thorn, scratches lha  hand, ihe latter is inoculated with germs, of  whieh the air about us U full. Directly these  germs are introduced through thc bieach in  the skin, a battle royal ensues between the:n  and certain organisms in our blood.  When the invading germs are too strong  tor Nature's defences, in a few hours tha  finger will become hot and throbbing. A  lillle later thc wound may "exhibit a whitish  appearance in the middle of the swelling, and  we have what is known as a festering or  poisoned wound. ^  The way to avoid such serious results is  to cleanse the wound nnd npply-Zam-Buk.  Zam-Buk is a powerful yci painless germ  killer, and when applied to the broken skin  is absorbed into the tissue, instantly des.  troying the germs that spread disease and  infl.inin.ation.  The flesh is thus soothed and purified, tha  wound made pcifcctly healthy, and all  poison and cause of festering removed.  Having done ibis, Zam-Buk then proceeds to  heal ihe wound or sere with new healthy  tissue, in a quick, painless, and perfect  manner.  Zam-Buk must ��������������������������� not be confused with '  ordinary ointments. Zam-Buk is a unique  ���������������������������preparation, po'-ses.ing antiseptic, soothing,  and healing qualities ihat are not to be found  together in ������������������ny other preparation. It is not  only a unique healing balm, but it is also a  skin food. For all skin diseases and injuries-  cuts, bruises, burns, eczema, chafing, ulcers,  ringworm, etc., it is without equal. It is  also used widely for piles, tor which it may  be regarded as a specific* Ali druggists and  stores sell at fifty cents a box, or post fa _  from Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, for price.  think that such powers can be acquired at all by organisms so low  ai we are accustomed to regard  plants.  Thc thing is so common that ve  have ceased to wonder at it, .m;  there is a deal of cleverness in the  startegy of most flowers in supplying honey in such a position thai  it acts as payment to thc friendly  bee for the service- of pollenating  the flowers that are to reproduce  the stock. Thero arc some plan _,  .however, which have special methods of their own. The fig even  now grows its flowers inside the;  fruit���������������������������or, rather, thc fruit we cat  is thc outer covering of the ilow  crs, and to grow the large Smyrna  'gS     A SPECIAL INSECT.  has to be encouraged. For years  these large figs could not be grown  .in California, until at last the right  insect'was' imported to do the work.  There is a pine in the Western  forests of America that has so hard  a cone that the imprisoned; seeds  cannot be propagated in the ordinary way. Tlie best way is to burn  the cone over a hot fire until it  .bursts, when the seeds escape.  When the vast, all-devastating forest fires sweep the country, these  pine cones have their chance, and  from them the new trees grow. Docs  the tree know that it 1ms to make  this cunning preparation for forest fires, or risk extinction ? It  looks like it.  :  *��������������������������� .  IN WRONG.

Manners of   Those   Animals   art  Generally Perfect.  "Whenever'I recall the sacred  city of Kairowan, my-ear is aware  ot the dull, soft sound of the camel's leisurely tread," declares ."Mr.  Graham Fetrie, iu his boon on  "Tunis, Kairowan and Carthage."  The camel is . ubiquitous in this  city; one meets him at every turn,-  pursuing every occupation, hunibla,  and exalted.  He draws the" carts," lie treads the  wheat, hc grinds the corn, and he  carries such enormous-burdens   of  hay and fodder that one wonders  if   indeed, his pool    humped iback  would not be broken by-adding the.  proverbial straw. ������������������������������������������������������."-        "-_"  ' "Although his occupations are mc-,  nial,    although "his    figure  -is gro-'  tcsquc and ungainly,', although'his  eyes are often covered with blink-,  crs and his   mouth   enclosed by a  nose-bag, although his neck is denuded of its long, handsome collar  and  his  body clipped  and  shaved*  till his skin is as bare as a plucked  ostrich,  although    he' is lodged in  filthy    stables    and    beaten    with  sticks by heartless   boys,_ he never  loses his dignity of bearing.  The manners of the camel are  generally perfect, as is .noticeable  when one sees a score' or more  drinking at one of thc many wells  outside thc town-  Arranging themselves in regular  and orderly rows on either side ol  JJdcJjicluirh. -they- j_lret.h__.oii __their.  long necks and suck up thc water  with a solemnity and orderline&a  that would do credit to the formal  etiquette of a Chines-������������������ mandarin.

WELL PAID TEACHERS  One of the best indications of our  advancing civilization, in British Columbia, at least, is to be found in  the fact that we are paying our public school teachers high salaries. By  reference to the annual report of the  Department of Education it will be  seen that the principal of the Grand  Forks public school gets a salary of  $140.00 a month, or nearly $1,700 a  year, and this, it is said, is not because of any unusual heaviness in his  work, as the attendance in his room  is only about thirty. A well-paid  staff of teachers is one of thc best  assets a community can have.  NICOLA COAL  Orders taken for delivery at Enderby.
