 Enderby, B. C, November 25, 1909  AND      WALKER'S      WEE KLY  Vol. 2; No. 39; Whole No. 91  Hon. Price Ellison  Heard by Packed House  Hon. Price Ellison's meeting was  little short of an ovation. The hall  was packed to standing room only,  and for three hours the large audience sat and listened to the speakers..  Regardless .of party; Enderby has a  warm spot in her heart for Mr. Ellison, and we are proud that he as  our member has been made a cabinet  minister. It was partly to show our  esteem for Mr. Ellison as minister,  but more to hear him as friend, that  Enderby turned out so well..  Promptly at 8 o'clock Chairman  Barnes called the meeting to order.  Mr. J. A. MacKelvie was the first  speaker called upon. Mr. MacKelvie,  of all men, is thoroughly conversant  with the actions of the McBride  government, ��������������������������� and the criticism level  him our congratulations on the high  office to which he had been.called by  his government.  When' Mr. Ellison, arose to speak,  he was greeted by prolonged applause  and from the start to.finish*of his  lengthy address, he was frequently  interrupted by cheers and laughter..  He thanked Mr. Bell, and through  him the people of Enderby and the  Liberal Association for the kind expression : of esteem that had been  made, and promised in his hew position ever'-to be watchful of the interests of the Okanagan;  Mr.-Ellison then paid his respects  to the lSocialist,>_peaker, and told  him what, constituted a' workingman  in the Okanaganv and British Columbia. Mr."Ellison 'gave some fatherly  advice, with just enough of.the stick  fed _ against- the   government's rail-1*" it to please the audience, and set  ^- ������������������ CT ... _        _ hn  * "afrinnltv-fv"      _>1lf r_.   !___������������������_      !___     ������������������_r>_-_  way policy by the, .Opposition, and  his remarks were well received -and  thoroughly .enjoyed.' He took up  the speeches of Mr. Wade and Mr.  MacDonaldf and answered them .point  by point, and showed tthat after all  these speakers had said, there was  really very little., for the Opposition  to build its case upon. The charge  that British Columbia proposed to  give too much.,for the little it was  to receive from the railroad:, was an-  ' swered'by showing ���������������������������" wliat'&anitoba',  Saskatchewan anii Alberta" had given  in the way of guaranteeing the bonds  of the road, and that in reality it  was costing British Columbia not a  cent, since the bonds were not payable for 30 years, and the road, being  a transcontinental road, and running  through the,, rapidly advancing sections of the Dominion, was sure to  pay from the start, and would carry  its own obligations. In any event,  he said, the province held or would  hold a first mortgage on the-road,  and a lein upon the whole system, to  protect itself against loss.  The Oliver. paper railroad vras referred to; the charge of. paralleling  the C.P.R. refuted; the impracticability of the tunnel proposition explained, and the great good to be  derived from the Kettle Valley road  ^discussed.   the "strippling" out. Then he proceeded with other matters. First he  set himself straight on the local option question,, saying that he.was  prepared to let his actions speak in  the matter." He has been called upon  in an official way many times to  handle the matter of licenses, and  his actions at those times should be  sufficient to convince anyone where  he stands. If; he said, there is one  vote over half the number of votes'  cast for the candidates, -'we-, may --feci \-. Reserve, you.;, se.ts-_.for. the. English-  sure that'a local option-law will b_ [ Opera. Singers. ��������������������������� At A. Reeves.  placed upon the statute books. Mr.  McBride had given hi3 word to this  effect, and he knew he would keep his  word. '  Taking up the.railway policy of the  Government, he clearly, lucidly, and  fairly set-forth the conditions on  which the road is to be built, and  the boilis endorsed. British Columbia cannot lose on the proposition,  he saici, for the government.is.protected at every point. And the construction of the road would open up  large sections of .country heretofore  producing nothing; thousands of settlers will be induced to locate here,  bringing with them their wealth" and  industry; competitive railroad rates  will be secured, and" innumerable  branch lines will be run from the  main line to open up still greater  sections of the province. One of" the  first of these ' branch lines will be  into the Okanagan, . which will at  once break the monopoly from which  we have suffered so long.  Mr. Ellison spoke until after 11  o'clock. His ready wit, and quaint  way of putting things, captured" his  audience completely. We regret that  lack of space forbids a fuller account.  In closing, Mr..Ellison, said that he  would in the future-as he had- in the  past keep the interests "of the Okanagan ever before, the Government. In  the near future, he said, a redistribution bill will be-brought down, and  the Okanagan would be given one  more representative, if not two.

K N K  QONE  MAN'S .POINT OF VIE    Q  i                      _*^_>^-_                    11  I  Mr. MacKelvie spoke for an hour  or more, and his answers to each and  every charge made by the Opposition  speakers seemed to give satisfaction  to all interested. The one great  crime charged against the government, that of giving one W. A. Lang  the province's reversionary interest  in 3,000 acres of land on Okanagan  lake, charged by the Opposition, was  explained by showing that it is the  policy of the Government to sell its  reversionary right in this land to  any white man who first buys from  thc Indians the land, nnd then from  the Dominion. First the Indians  must be satisfied, then the Dominion  government, and finally the province  of British Columbia. This is the  regular way in which these lands arc  dealt with, and' the only way, and  anyone can buy Indian reserve land  if the Indians and the Dominion are  first satisfied. And the price from  the province is $2.50 an acre, the  same as was paid by W. A". Lang.  An unknown Socialist speaker then  .occupied the platform for half an  hour, to the edification of the audience and the enthusiastic pleasure of  the Socialist element of the gathering. He was a fluent speaker, witty,  sarcastic, and bitter. His clothes  deceived him, but his tongue did not,  and for thirty minutes the McBride  government received a fire-eating  tongue-lashing. Repeatedly the man  arbitrarily demanded of Mr. Ellison  in.a most discourteous attitude explanations of the actions of the legislatures of the past four years, to all  of which Mr. Ellison replied in a  kindly spirit.      '  Mr. Geo. Bell followed in a brief  talk on local option, in which he  earnestly asked the audience to consider well the importance of the issue  and give it their support.  Before proceeding in his address,  Mr. Bell, on behalf of the citizens of  Enderby, and the local Liberal Association, assurred   Mr. Ellison of the  done aud is capable of doing, we believe the country would rather trust  Premier McBride to act in the interests of the province, ' than to risk  putting the business in the hands of  an untried man. To-day's vote will  tell.  T is not now, never has been, and j    in the Okanagan Riding there was  never   will   be   our   purpose to  a great opportunity for the Liberal  make this,   paper a partisan or-! party to w  ,'in the respect and admir-  -gan.-^Biit^w.e__feeUbound_^by__.duty__to_iation-of-all,wi!o=have-yielded=to-the  speak plainly of the things we see j wish of a vast majority of the pco-  that we feel are hurtful.or helpful to ! pie of the Valley, and honored our-  our country and community.

But the dominnt- : since it'   is   optional    with  the resi  liquor business, and draws down a  dollar and a half on every, gallon of  whiskey sold ih the Dominion, we  n\ay expect to have men engage in  the selling of liquor.

Between  these two elements, there is a vast  number of intelligent voters who are  no more in sympathy with the intemperance of the one side than the intemperance of the other, and who  feel that, no matter which way you  look at it, prohibition means that  the" man who "does"not" drink~is "legislating against the man who does,  and that this kind of reform is neither beneficial to the one or the other  and  tends to bring about more  fric-  These voters  generous    recognition .paid to������������������Harry  Worthington,   secretary   bf .the local  association; -:whose   senices    to. the  Liberal cause -in   this   'section have ..  long   been   recognized.

ENDERBY PUBLIC SCHOOL  A written examination in British  history was held last Monday.in the  principal's room. The pupils of the  senior_division__w_er_e_examincd in the  tlie same   fight  to   make, with, per  haps some variations.    A little less  ing influence of the party was not big  railway talk, fewer hot-air lines on enough to see the opportunity and  wrapping paper, and perhaps less, grasp it. It would have been the  mountain climbing and tunnel build-j height of diplomacy    and statesman-  ing.   But the   end   would   have been  the same.  It is an easy matter to make paper  railroads, which nobody can or will-  have to build. A yard, or two of  wrapping paper, a piece of crayon, an  Honest John Henry, and spellbinders  to Wade the muck, and, presto, you  have it ! But the people are sick of  this kind of thing. For seven years  the Great Northern has been endeavoring to get through Hope Mountain  pass, and is no nearer today than it  was at the commencement. The general public knows this and will not  take any stock in John Oliver's campaign.map.  To fight a progressive policy never  has been anything but a losing fight.  In this contest the Opposition must  lose. If there are some things in the  McBride policy that the people do  not understand, they will have ample  opportunity to learn about them  when the matter is laid before the  legislature, and is there threshed out  by the Government   and   Opposition.  dents of a community whether they  shall or shall not buy liquor, and if  they do not buy liquor it will not be  sold.

In view of this we will be  surprised if a great many of the temperance people do not refuse to defeat themselves and vote for neither  of the candidates, but plump their  votes for local option."  How intemperate our temperance  people are !

Whether these different voters are  right or wrong, they have a vote,  and if they do not care to exercise it  it is very evident they do not wish  to change existing conditions. That  every n?an should vote, "yes" or  "no" will be admitted, but because  they should, does not mean that they  will, and if they will not, we fail to  see wherein the Government could do  differently than they have, and demand that at least half of the voters in the province vote in favor of  a change before a change is made.  If one-half the voters do not want a  change, why -should a change be  made? It is up to every voter to say  what he wants.

Thero are two ways in which  many cooks are prone to spoil a  E_i;ui. One of these is the salad  is not cold enough ; the other, there  is too mucli vinegar in tho French  .���������������������������dressing. Either of these faults  is so easy to remedy that one wonder, why it never occurs io the offending 'dames of the kitchen" to  o'(   differently.

As for the French dressing, vine  gars vary so widely in strength and  acidity that it is impossible to give  a_y hard and fa,���������������������������t rule. Try one  ���������������������������tablespoonful of vinegar to four  of oil, and a her they arc thoroughly blended -taste critically. You  "a . then tone it up or down as you  like it best.

The great fish went straight, off,  towing the boat behind it; (.he wind  got up. and so did the sea; night  came on, and thc tarpon showed  no sign of giving in.

Ccrnian Soldiers arc Mostly Undersized, Underfed aud Overworked.  Take an average British soldier  and put him for, say, three  months' military training, into  tho     German   ��������������������������� Army. What  .would be the result1? Twelve week3  out of thirteen would be spent in  eolitary conlinomont for insubordination und instilling a superior  officer, while in the last week he  would probably be executed for  killing one, writes an English girl  in Pearson's Weekly.  This is not intended a.s a slnr upon the British soldier ; for, although  he gives up his life and body to thc  Service of his country, still ho retains his individuality and his self-  respect. Such is certainly not tho  case with tho German soldier; for  .'hat_ self-respect can a man have  who is habitually addressed by his  superior officers by such epithets  as, bandy-legs,,pig-dog, fool, idiot,  end so on.  EVERY MAN A SOLDIER.  Sineo every man, who is nob an  absolute idiot or physically iucap-  flblc, is compelled to serve, ifc can  be well imagined that tho Gorman  'Army, as a whole, is not conspicuous [or symmetry of form, nor beauty and intelligence of countenance;  therefore, it scoma more than hard  that a man who, through no fault of  his own, is afflicted with some personal defect, should have this affliction publicly derided and jeered  afc with remarks prefaced by one  o: more of the. foregoing elegancies  of speech.  Tho undcr-officers are the worst  offenders in this respect.  "Hi I you bandy-legs; don't stand  there looking aa conceited as if you  were the only silly ass in the whole  regiment," ia the sort of wit in  which the non-com. indulges afc the  unfortunate private's expense.

"To dine, sir," came tho reply.  "What?"  roared out the sergeant.    '"'Officers dine, we   eat, but  you���������������������������you   feed, understand!" and  ' this to a gentleman born.  The Gorman soldiers on parade  are nob a pretty sight, nor an imposing one. They are mostly under-sized, underfed, and overworked.

"Are���������������������������er���������������������������the English officers ���������������������������  cr���������������������������as educated (febildet) as we  German?" said a young lieutenant  to me upon being introduced. My  answer was something to the effect  that the English officers were not  so conceited (eingebildct) as the  ���������������������������German, and he seemed surprises,  quite hurt, in fact, that I was not  overcome with gratitude at his condescension in speaking to me at all.

Quite recently  a French savant made a series of  remarkable experiments with what  are known as "Hertzian waves."  Without going too deeply into the  subject ifc may be sufficient to explain that "Hertzian waves" are  so called after. Heinrich Hertz,  who found by experimenting, about  the year 1888, that ifc was possiblo  to control to a large extent the  magnetic current in the air.  WILL PIERCE STONE WALLS  Tho "waves" move along very  much like a corkscrew, and although for the moment scientists  are not able to controL them, or  steer them in any given direction,  there seems little doubt that this  feat will be only a question of a  few .years-  The effect of tho "Hertzian  waves" may he judged when it is  stated, as the result of thc recent  experiments in France, that they  will pierce stone walls three, feet  thick.'  For practical purposes the  "waves" are spirals of moving, invisible flame. Already there is a  theory by which it is believed the  power of directing and controlling  this invisible fire may be acquired,  and in the face of this new force  the armies and navies of the world  wil be helpless.  Two or three men, sitting at their'  instruments, could direct a- group  c-t "waves" through the air towards  an advancing fleet that threatened  their .shores. The "waves" would  strike the ships, and run along the  metal portions of them as a flame  runs along a stream of inflammable  spirit  And all the while the ship would  be giving off electric sparks, just  as is done in tho simpler experiments with an electric' battery.

Ifc will be remembered that the  laic Mr. Harry Barnalo left by will  thc splendid sum. of $1,250,000 for  the purpose of founding some charity in thc nature of a hospital or  kindred institution in commemoration of Iiis brother, Mr- Barney  Barnato, ' and las nephew, Mr.  Woolf Joel.  After full and careful consideration of the merits of thc many  schemes put before them thc trustees, Mr. S. B. Joel, Mr. J. B. Joel  and Mr. S. G. Ashcr, have now  decided upon applying it to tho  building and endowment of an institution for the reception of cancer patients.  Wilh a view to increasing the potentialities of the bequest the new  institution will be- administered,  except as regards its finance, in  connection with the Middlesex Hospital, which has acquired so high  a���������������������������repufcation for its treatment of  patients afflicted with this disease,  and the trustees have procured a'  suitable site in Nassau street adjoining, this hospital's special cancer wards.  The trustees, wijfch Prince Francis  of Teck, Lord Cheylesmore, Sir  John Purccll, and Mr. Felix Davis,  will form thc. committee which has  been entrusted with the task -of  carrying oul the ^audable and beneficent project.  The authorities of the Middlesex  Hospital will nol be relieved in the  slightest degree of their financial  responsibility in connection .with  their cancer department as afc present constituted.

No navy would be put to sea  knowing that at any moment the  dread, invisible "waves" might  scatter it like chaff beforo the wind.

He has  been on colonial service and married a Creole,girl from Mauritius,  and  her dower  was  an  old  envelope bearing two    stamps.      They  were what'is known as "Postoffice.  Mauritius," thc stamps being    of  little artistic beauty    and bearing  the words quoted.    They were current only for a very    short time.

As a last   resort,   the   Opposition  speakers in the campaign ;ust closing  threw out   the    bait    of a suggested  coalition    government,   well knowing  that at all times and in all places a  politician runs a chance of turning a  few luke-warm votes his way by suggesting a go-between.     But the people    of   British   Columbia   have had  enough of the hybrid element in politics.       They  have not forgotten the  position the province was in seven or  eight years .ago as a result of these  same coalition governments.     Driven  almost into bankruptcy,  as the province then was,  with nobody responsible, and   no   one   to   shoulder the  blame!   Oh,    no;   not yet.   when the  people of British  Columbia feel that  Premier McBride is not giving them  a square   deal,    and    have    no more  faith in the party he represents, they  will put the Liberal party into power  but that time is not yet.   And in the  meantime, the   people of British Columbia will support the man who has  done so much for the province in the  past six years, and leave well enough  alone.

Little  Eldernell Orchard  M  ara,  B.C  We can   still show  the Goods  Some  prime  stall-fed  beef  cut at the present time  Our  Sausage is still a  Leader  on  In last weeks issue of this paper,  Mr. S. Poison, made a valuable suggestion���������������������������one, at least, that is worthy  of the earnest thought of all interested in tlie larger, fuller development of the Okanagan Valley. Of  course, Mr. Poison steps too far in  advance, when he suggests the possibility of going to the government  and asking its endorsation of a proposition that is so much in the air as  this one at the present time. But we  believe we voice the opinion of many  when we say that Mr. Poison's suggestion will one day, and not far distant, be an actual realization. It is  entirely practical, say men who know  the ground well, but will require a  very great deal of hard work and  persistent effort before it will have  reached the point where it can be  put before any government or corporation.  In the Spallumcheen river, the Okanagan has a vast resource not yet  dreamed of. One day, it will have  along its banks factories of various  kinds, and from its water falls, electric power will be generated sufficient  to supply every town in the .plley  with electricity for lighting, heating  arid' driving purposes, and tram lines  will be run by it. And the waters of  the river are available to make c-'c-ry  foot of land from Sicamous to tbe  lake become productive.  CLEARLY  DEFINES   HIS   POLICY  Fish and Poultry  G. R. Sharpe,  Enderby, B. C.  ��������������������������� In his address at Vancouver last  Wednesday night Premier McBride  gave a clearer and more thorough  exposition of his railway policy than  he has in any previous address we  have read. While all of our- readers  will probably have cast their vote  either for or against the premier and  his policy before many of them will  read this, we feel it is of interest to  all to have a thorough understanding  of what the   advancement under the  ; -.rViW ��������������������������� i_ei-   y������������������&V_* _T_ AW.   /*.

AMES-HOLDEN CO., Limited  policy,  during the next few years, is  destined to be.  "For the last six and a half years,'  said the Premier, "people have asked  me to .give them a railway policy. I  said that when I found a safe and  sound bargain with a reliable corporation I would come to them with  a policy, but that I would not deal  with paper railways. I have secured  that policy and I now come to you  for your endorsation or condemnation. The first question is what is  the company with which I have  treated. My answer: the Canadian  Northern. The next question will be  who is the Canadian Northern? My  answer: A Canadian road operating  3,600 miles of standard guage road  west of the Great Lakes, with 500  miles under construction and 2,000  under projection. A road which employs 25,000 white men, and comes to  us with the endorsement of every  province except New Brunswick and  Prince Edward Island, which have  not yet connected with the system.  Further, we have an assurance of the  reliability of the Canadian Northern  from Sir Wilfred Laurier, who has  guaranteed 1,400 miles of that road.  "Seven years ago, in-1902, I headed  a bitter fight against the Canadian  Northern, as leader of the opposition  and for 104 days we fought a bill  which would have given Mackenzie &  Mann for coming to this province a  subvention of 20,000 acres of land per  mile, $5000 in cash per mile, and exemption from taxation for 25 years.  I said then that the time had gone  by when we should give our land and  our money to railroads, and I come  to you to-day giving you a third  transcontinental system without- the  presentation of a single acre of our  land or a single dollar of our treasury."  "Now, what is the bargain with  the Canadian Northern," continued  the Premier. "Well, we agree to  guarantee the bonds of the company  for $35,000 a mile at 4 per cent. In  other words, we endorse the note of  a reputable corporation. On our endorsement they raise the money,  which, mark you, is not held by the  company, but is paid into the treasury of British Columbia, and is only  paid out when we are certain that  the work has been done satisfactorily  For the guarantee of these bonds  what do we get? Ladies, and gentlemen, we get a first mortgage on the  road, we get a covenant over the  whole system to save us harmless,  we get an undertaking that the road  is to be built with white labor and  the standard scale of wages is to be  paid. Further, all supplies and material is to be purchased in British  Columbia, construction is to be  started within three months from the  assent of the bill, and the road is to  be completed within four years. This  means that within that short period  something like $30,000,000 will be expended in this province in wages and  in the getting of supplies."  "Now what is the criticism levelled  at this policy. The Liberals say it  opens up only 200 miles of new country and for the rest parallels the C.  P. R. The only section of the C. P.  R. that the proposed road will parallel will be from Savona to Fort  Yale, a distance of some 123 miles.  For the remainder of the distance  the Canadian Northern will go  through new country so far as steam  railroads are concerned. The grade  of the Canadian Northern from the  mountains to thc coast will not exceed five tenths of one per cent., and  it is necessary for the competition  which I hope to give to the people  -that��������������������������� a==grade=such^as=this=shall"W  obtained. We get a grade over this  route which will enable the Canadian  Northern to extend its lines into the  Kootenay, Similkameen and Okanagan. The Kettle Valley lines will  give the coast-Kootenay connection,'  and will cost us $9,000 for ten years.  With this and the Canadian Northern  ���������������������������which does not cost us _ cent���������������������������-I  offer you in all 900 miles of railroad  at a cost of $9,000 for 10 years;, you  get tlie expenditure of nearly $40,-  000,000; you get contact with the  country east of the mountains; you  get as a market for your fruit nnd  timber 400 additional towns on your  direct line and branch lines of the  Canadian Northern, and you get fair  and reasonable rates under thc control of the Provincial Government.  I say that this bargain is the one for  which we have been looking for. If  subventions by way of guarantees are  good enough for the eastern provinces they are good enough lor British  Columbia."

A full house greeted Candidate F.  _.. B. DeHart and Mr. K. C. Mac-  Donald in K. of P. hall, last Saturday evening. Mr. Geo. Bell, president of thc local Liberal Association,  occupied the chair.  That Mr. DeHart is new in the  game of politics, was evident from  his opening words to thc close of his  speech; but that Mr. DeHart is honest in his convictions nobody who  heard him speak will for a moment  doubt. Mr. DeHart spoke very briefly. He said he was not making the  run in the Okanagan at his own  pleasure, for he recognized that he  was no politician; and his respect for  Mr. Ellison, his opponent, was thc  highest. They were warm friends,  and had been for years. He was in  the fight more in opposition to the  McBride railway policy, which he  considered was not in the interest of  the people, and he opposed it believing it was not the best agreement  that could be made. He asked the  votes of his hearers if they were convinced that it would be better for the  country's welfare if he were elected  instead of Mr. Ellison, promising to  do all in his power for the Okanagan  if he were chosen.  Rev. Mr. Campbell spoke clearly  and forcefully for the Local Option  cause. After laying the matter before his hearers as fairly as he could,  he asked every voter to exercise his  franchise for or against the plebescite  which he said was submitted under a  handicap, but nevertheless the question had been submitted by the government, and it was the opportunity  the temperance people had asked for,  and every man believing it would be  more to the interest of the province  to have a local option law on the  statute books, allowing every incorporated municipality to say whether  or not liquor shall be sold within its  boundaries, should take advantage of  the opportunity and vote for such a  law. He said he did not consider it  was fair in the government demanding, half as many votes in favor of a  law as the total number of votes cast  for all.the candidates. He thought a  majority of the votes cast for and  against the question of local option,  without taking into consideration  .what the vote of the province was,  should decide the question. . A local  option ballot will be handed to every  voter on election day, separated from  the regular ballot on which thc candidates names are printed, and the  local option ballots -will be deposited  in a separate ballot box. When the  votes are counted, it will be necessary for. the local option question to  have half as many in favor of the  proposed law as there are votes for  the three candidates in the field. He  urged every voter- to vote "yes" or  "no"' so as tb let the government  know . exactly where the country  stands on the question.  Mr. R. C.. MacDonald followed Mr.  Campbell, and scored the Government's railway policy. -He could see  nothing in its favor, and thought it  was asking too much for the little it  proposed to give. The speaker produced a map, prepared especially for  the occasion, showing the relative  value to the. country of the McBride  policy and the policy, of the Opposition. The McBride road, he said,  would open up very little new country, since it would parallel, the C.P.  R. most of the distance, whereas the  road the Opposition had drawn on  paper,_.would__ go on._a__straight_line_  people,- the Indians and the Government.. It w as a good Opposition  point to make, but here where we  have heard so much about the Indian  reserve question, we would like to  be shown any wild bush land that is  worth $300 an acre; and most of us  would like to see white men get hold  of many more thousands of acres of  this land that has lain waste so long  at even $2.50 an acre���������������������������anything to  get it opened up and into the hands  of white settlers, or good colonization companies that would put settlers upon it.  ENGLISH GRAND OPERA  over the Hope mountain pass, or under it by tunnel, direct to Vancouver,  making a big saving in time and  money to travelers from the Okanagan to the coast. He said it was  needless to give the guarantee to the  Canadian Northern Railway builders,  for the road would have to come to  the coast anyway, and as there was  no clause in the agreement for the  control of rates, he failed to see how  the people- were to-benefit, by the  competition afforded by the Canadian  Northern.  Mr. MacDonald said his party was  thoroughly in accord with the Kettle  Valley Railway, and believed the construction of the road would mean a  splendid thing for the country, and  the rapid building up of the district  through which the road will operate.  It was proposed by the Liberals, he  said, to build a tunnel through the  Hope mountain pass, and if no railroad company could be found that  would undertake the work, then the  province would do so, and allow all  railroads running into Vancouver to  have running privileges over the road  at a nominal rate. Over this road it  would be possible for the government  to regulate all charges, freight and  passenger, and thus maintain a low  rate.  In the matter of Indian reserves,  Mr. MacDonald claimed to have inside information showing how the  McBride Government had sold the reversionary.,: interest of the government in something over 3,000 acres of  Indian lands situated on Okanagan  lake, to one W. A. Lang, for $2.50 an  acre, land, which he claimed was  worth at least $300 an acre. The  speaker did not say what the Indians  were to receive for the land, nor the  amount that was to be paid to the  Dominion Government as guardian of  the Indians, but left the impression  that the man Lang was "doing" the  Richard McBride is more than a  =politician.=_=-^He__is_a_^tatesman)=_. nd  Canada should be proud of him, even  if he was born near New Westminster  Some day he will be premier of this  glorious Dominion.���������������������������Greenwood Ledge  In presenting this attraction, the  second in the series of entertainments put upon the road by the C:  P. Walker Lyceum Bureau, of Winnipeg, and given in Enderby by Mr. A.  Reeves, the management feels that it  is offering to music lovers tlie accute  accentuation of musical merit. The  company was formed in the belief  that there is always a sufficient number of discriminating-, people interested in hearing good music, delightfully and attractively presented, to  support a high-class and expensive  attraction.  The company consists of eight people: an operatic quartette and four  solo instrumentalists, who give selections from.standard light nnd grand  opera in^ custume. Each member of  the party is young and is chosen for  individual merit and for their artistic value to the programme as a  whole. The programme is " shared  equally, there being no star and no  inferior supporting members.  Practically all operatic compositions have one or two numbers that  have become instantly popular and  make the opera a success. The programme of this organization will  consist entirely of these choice selections from the best opera. The quartette from "Rigoletto." the sextette  in "Lucia di Lammen .oor," the.  famous trio from "Faust,'-' and the  impressive "Miserere" from "il Tro-  vatore;" enlivened >by the comedy  quartettes from "Mikado," "The  Geisha;" "The Country Girl," "The  Burgomaster," "The Merry'Widow/'  and other musical successes, constitute the operatic first part. The sec- j  ond part will, consist of the .entire  Second Act of "Martha," the most  tuneful of all English operas. This  Act can be sung by four people, and  contains much comedy in addition to  the musical gems, "The Last Rose of  Summer," "The Spinning Song,"  and the '"Goodnight.'.', quartette.    .  In addition to' these numbers, we  shall hear Leon Ketchum, solo 'cellist; Glenn Kershncr, flutist; Mademoiselle Ange, violiniste, and Madame Ange, pianiste. This is the  big event of the entire course, and  nobody should miss it. Reserve your  seats early."

With tlie .spiritual, the iuvis-  ibl _, thc highest truth, thc modern  man has little concern. As; tn them  lu.-- will  take his chance.  Yet no deadlier evil cm befall  aiyonc than the weakening or loss  .of hi.s faith.  The greatest forces that havo  swayed history .have. sprung from  faith. The mightiest personalities  have been those strong in faith.  Faith in Ood, iu man and in truth  has ever been the lever of power.

It lias  .proved its claim in our own lives.  By going forward, taking the risk,  acting in faith, we have won all  our successes. In business, in discovery, in temptation, in trial and  danger faith is tho power every  time that sustains and conquers.

CANNING HINTS.  To Prevent Mold���������������������������(.'lean and prepare fruit in whatever way you arc  i . the habit of doing, but .sterilize  cans in the following manner:  Have good, thick rubbers that fit  well and examine tops, making sure  they have an even edge and are  otherwise in good condition.  No matter how clean they may be,  plunge jars, rubbers, and lops into clean, hot soap-suds, not loo  soapy, and wash thoroughly. Use  a new dish mop, rinse with a little  clear water, and plunge again in a  pan of clear., hoi; water in whieh  has been dissolved a teaspoonful of  baking soda; let stand in seda. bath  about five minutes, then rinse in  clear, cold water and stand open  end down to drain. Sterilize as  many jars as you ueed for fruit on  hand,  "While fruit is cooking prepare a  heavy syrup of a tcacupi'ul of granulated sugar and a quarter of a tea-  cupful of water, boiling it ono minute and adding to it as it is used  up; keep hot until needed.  Roll tops, jars, and rubber rings  in 'boiling water, only two at,a time,  as they cool quickly. Drain and  stand in clean pan, place, rubbers,  rub with .silver knife over tho ela's-  t c bands with pressure close to tho  neck of jar to make sure it is fitted perfectly, Never allow fruit  juice, seed, or syrup under tho rubber rings. Fill jars with thc prepared fruit three-fourths full, run  silver knife down inside of jar, rc-  noying ifc slowly, and any air bubbles will follow. Do this several  times, add fruit until jar is filled to  within half an inch of top. Now  hi! to slightly overflowing with the  thick, hot syrup, leaving thc overflow on the rubber rings, screw on  flic hot tops quickly, keep tightening every twenty minutes until cold.  Thc syrup forms a cement on the inside between tops and rubbers,  making them absolutely air tight.  To remove tops,- wrap tops only  with a cloth wrung out of hot water,  run a thin blaclcd knife under the  elastic band, being careful not to  dent the edge of top. and "elastic  baud and top will come off together with case and you can see how  perfectly the syrup cements it.  For tomatoes or vegetables not  canned with sugar sterilize tops,  jars, and rings as above directed,  lid thc glass jars three-fourths full,  run silver knife down inside of jars,  remove slowly to allow air bubbles  to escape, (ill to within two inches  of top. and pour in slowly a half  pint of boil'ng water, allowing it  to run over freely, thereby washing  away any air bubbles or particles  of scum remaining. Screw hot top  on at once, keep tightening until  cold, and wjicn wanted for use open  carefully as directed, pour off this  surplus water, which will stand  clear and freo at thc top.  _Fo r jell |e s, w h e 11 c_o ld_ p_ut_ a _te a -  ���������������������������One cupful of flour, one teacupful of sugar, five eggs, two tcaspoonfuls of baking powder, one-  fouith teaspoonful of salt.

John Sheepshanks, later on the Bishop of Norwich, was travelling through British Columbia. His book, "A Bishop  in thc Piough," relates his experiences on the Douglas frail, whero  thc greatest discomfort was caused  by the swarms of ferocious mosquitoes. Hc met with Indians covered  with paint, carrying branches of  trees in their hands, which they  were sweeping round them as they  walked. They were evacuating their  country, being temporarily driven  out hy these pests. If by chance a  traveller arrived at a clearing or  au open space where there appeared  to be an immunity from them, ere  long they would appear.  "Quite early in the morning, after meeting those Indians, I issued  fiom my tent, and found an open  space, on the river's side where I  could get niy hath. But no sooner  had I. emerged from the water than  I found swarms of mosquitoes assailing me. and do what I would,  slaughter them by dozens. I suffered severely.

There was a ceaseless  hum in the apartment, for ifc was  literally brown with- thousands of  mosquitoes. a  "It was sweltering hot, yet every  man had made himself as impervious as /he could.'. Each man wore  his coat buttoned up, strings were  fastened round his cuffs, and trousers also, if he had not on fop-  boots. They had gauntlets on their  hands, their hats were on, and veils  hanging down covered face and  neck. A man would stick his fork  into a piece of-meat and pop in under the veil as quickly as possible.  When drinking their coffee the men  would hold the cup underneath tho  veil, first clearing out thc bodie..."  of the mosquitoes which possibly  had been feeding upon the hairy  miner close afc hand.  "Not a word was uttered during  that brief meal, for we were beaten  down and cowed by the insects.

"I suppose," said the watchmaker to a friend who had just handed  him his watch for repairs, "you do  not know that watches, like human  beings', sometimes don't 'go' for  the very reason that they are tired  cut and need resting. Sometimes  a watch is brought to mc which is  all right. Nothing about it is out  of order, and it is fairly clean.  When they become sulky and refuse  tu run except by fits and starts the  best thing to do is to lay them, aside  for a good rest. Tho mechanism in  a 'tired' watch seems to be in per  fcrct condition, but it just won't  work. The fact is, that long And  faithful service has thrown it slight  ly out of adjustment in perhaps a  dozen different places. Scraping  and cleaning and readjusting a  f-ne watch are the worst things that  could be'done'to it. A month's  rest will instead cause the works  slowly t-o readjust themselves, and  at the end of that time, after- careful oiling, tho watch will go' as  cheerfully as ever."  WISDOM WHISPERS.  Work!

If wc were asked    to name the  Greatest drawback of summer, thc  answer would almost invariably be  "Flies!"     These    little pests are  only now beginning to receive the  unfriendly interest    they deserve.  They have hitherto been looked upon as nuisances, but now thc medical fraternity are labelling them  as dangerous.    The ily is hatchet  nnd thrives in decaying matter. In  two or three weeks from the laying  Cf the egg the ily attains its full  growth, and commences to plague  .   world which so far has found no  good in him. The best way to guard  against, flies is to see that no decaying food, either flesh or vegetable,  or other dirt is left about  for them to breed in.    Then,  use  the good old-fashioned,  sticky flypaper.    This is far preferable to  sweetened poison, as it keeps   its  victim in its grasp, and so the latter has no chantc of wandering off  tc die in the milk-jus or jam-pot.

Editor The Bnderby Press:  Dear Sir : Will you kindly give me  permission to make public an open  letter through the columns of the  Enderby Press. The letter speaks for  itself, and I would not presume to  encroach upon your space did I not  feel that the subject discussed in it is  of interest to many of your readers.  ���������������������������W.A.D.  Geo. Bell, Enderby, B.  C.  Dear Sir: In all probability few  people who receive the circular signed  by yourself and Mr. Co well, will take  the trouble to reply to it, except by  means of their votes, but I have  often wondered whether you and your  fellow believers in local option have  ever stopped to think of the real  meaning conveyed by the words themselves, apart from the object you  have in view.  I know, of course, and so does  everybody, that your chief aim is to  reduce the existing intemperance and  abuse of alcoholic liquors, and with  this I have no quarrel, but I most  emphatically disagree with you regarding the means by which your  party are attempting to attain this  object.  If every member of a municipality  desired to close the bars therein they  could do it, automatically, for if nobody went to a bar there.would be  no object in the proprietor keeping it  open, and there, would be nothing  gained by a law making it illegal to  sell liquor. But, so long as anyone  wants to buy liquor, I fail to see by  what system of ethics you should arrogate to yourself the right to forbid him to do so. If he abuses his  right, you have laws by means of  which you can control him, though  you must admit that they are feebly  enforced, judging by the number of  "drunks" at large in Enderby almost  every day. Why not start by showing the courage of your convictions,  nay, more, doing your duty as first  citizen, and checking by any means in  your power the erratic, zigzag course  along our sidewalks of the perambulating  "drunk?"  There is another reason why I am  opposed to local option, and that is  that it is entirely opposed to the  principle of free thought and freedom  of action, which, within legal limits,  we all as British subjects have hitherto considered to be our birth-right.  It is a deliberate, calculating attempt  by one section of a community to  dictate to thc remainder what they  shall or shall not drink, and where  they shall drink it.  I think also that in the latter half  of your circular you are deliberately  trying to hoodwink voters. When  you say: "REMEMBER, That you  are not voting for prohibition," do  you really flatter yourself that you  have wrapped   up   the issue so skill-  !"������������������������������������������������������'���������������������������       ANNOUNCEMENT !  o  +  0  -.  i  0  ���������������������������  0  .  0  4  $  GARDOM BROTHERS  associated with  CEPERLEY, ROUNSEFELL & CO., LTD.  have opened their office on the corner of Granville and  Robson Streets, Vancouver.

If the majority in a community secure the right of saying whether or  not they want licensed bars, does not  that amount to prohibition when  they close them, as they certainly  would, for there cannot fail to be a  minority who want them.  Trusting that you may at an early  date see the error of your ways and  mend them, Yours truly,  W. A. DOBSON.  A FEW YEARS AGO  A few years ago when Richard McBride reached up and grasped the  tattered reins of government in  B. C. this province was in a state of  chaos and debt. We were in a sort  of shabby-genteel, run-d o wn-at-the-  heel,      hat-in-the-window     condition,  that did not look good to the financiers of Europe.     Now, look at us !  We have millions in the bank and all  the world tips its hat to British Columbia, the brightest and most beautiful diamond in thc. grand tiara of  Canadian  provinces that sparkle between the two seas.   And McBride, a  native son, is largely responsible for  the happy    state    of   affairs in this  glorious    land.   It    was   his guiding  hand, assisted    by   able   lieutenants,  that lifted British  Columbia  out of  the debraic position into which it had  fallen through the mediocre administration of   hybrid   governments, and  placed it on a high front seat in this  great Dominion.     If given time and  opportunity    he    will   bring  greater  glory and renown to this far western  "Sea of Mountains," and all intelligent voters   know   how   to extend a  lease or renew an option.     It is impossible   to   defeat   McBride   at the  coming battle   of    the    ballots, and,  unlike   Richard    of    old, he will not  have to exclaim: "A horse! A horse!  My kingdom    for   a   horse!"       Too  many    railways   for    anything    like  that.���������������������������Greenwood Ledge.  NICOLA COAL  Orders taken for delivery at Enderby.
