There  is another road gang pushing the  work from the Trinity Valley end. At  a point near Trinity Creek the axmen  of both gangs can be heard at work.  If the weather holds good, the road  will be pushed through before mow  flies. It is quite likely, however,  that from Trinity creek to the p_.:nt  of meeting of the two road gangs, it  will be cut only wide enough for a  sleigh road this winter and finished  when spring opens.

By'this contract .the..Board *of .Trade takes Jour  pages' in the special number. Four  additional pages, are taken by lecul  business firms, making an eight-page',  section in all. . The cost, to the  Board of Trade is,$180.  The Board endorsed the action of  the executive committee in agreeing  to make good any loss (if any) that  might be sustained by A. Fulton in  connection with the Enderby. district  exhibit at the Okanagan Valley Apple Show, Oct. 23-24.  In accordance with a notice of motion made at the last regular meeting  of the Board, Mr. Sutcluffc moved _the  following amendment to the By-laws:  Resolved, that Sees. 16 and 19 be'  deleted and the following substituted  therefore, to become effective at once:  19.   The Managing  Committee shall  .be^the^executivfc=committee=of^the-  Board of   Trade,   and it shall Ly; its  duty to carry out the instructions of  the Board,   to    consider   au'.l  devise  ways and means of attaining the objects of the Board, and to make recommendations thereon  to the Board.

Five  members of thc Managing Comnvittee  shall constitute a quorum.  Messrs. Moffet, Packham, Poison and  Christie,   members    of the Managing  Committee, were present, and it was  pointed out how difficult it would be  to get a quorum of five out of a committee of only   seven.     To overcome  this difficulty, Mr. Poison moved and  Mr. Packham seconded that thc committee   bc   enlarged   by    adding thc  names of Mr, Fulton and Mr. llnrvcy.  Mr.   Fulton   moved   an    amendment  that the name of Mr. Sutcliffe hc substituted    for   that of   Fulton.    The  amendment carried.

COMMISSIONER   MABER    "SEEN"*  .. ���������������������������"*,-���������������������������������������������-.  A recent despatch from Golden, B.  C,  says:   Mr. .S.  Maber,.of Ottawa, -  the    commissioner   appointed by the'  Dominion government to enquire into'  the claims    of   squatters en lands, in"  the railway belt,- the adjudication of- '  such claims and    the .opening, of this  area of agricultural "lands-for-settlement-by homesteaders, is at present',  continuing investigations in this dis-  "tfittT===tH"e was met by a deputation  of the Golden Board of Trade, which  body has for some time been  urging  upon  the    government' the  necessity  for speedy    inauguration of satisfa''.-  tory arrangements    for the" administration of these   lands.   The deputation recommended to the commissioner the granting   of   1G0 acres to all  bona- fide -settlers,��������������������������� and-urged -upon���������������������������  him thc    necessity    of    entries being  granted as quickly as possible.  In brief the Board suggested that  the regulations suspended in 1909 be  again put into effect, and, in addition, that surveys be made of lands,  so that intending settlers will be-occasioned little trouble in selecting  future homes. The deputation urged  that the lumber companies' interests  be properly safeguarded, but that  logged-over lands should be thrown  open.  A rancher near Penticton planted  five acres in cucumbers .this, season.  Every acre produced upwards of 12,-  000 cucumbers of market size. At 2  cents each the grower would have received $250 an acre, or $1,000 for the  crop. He shipped two or three trial  lots to Vancouver. The cucumbers  sold at 25c apiece on the market in  Vancouver. The wholesalers didn't  return the grower enough to pay expenses of shipping.  WANTED���������������������������A live agent for! Sunset  curbons and ribbons; also for a  world-known typewriter.

I  F. H. BARNES j  Secretary  I. 0.0. F.  P.  W. CHAPMAN  W  Pressure is being brought upon the  Dominion lands department Irom all  sections in the railway belt regarding the proposed amendments to ohe  land act, which must become law before the land in the railway belt can  be thrown open to homesteaders or  purchasers. It is believed by those  in a position    to  as amended will provide for homesteads of forty acres only instead' of  usual 160 acres. This 'change  is thought advisable owing to the  small proportions of the lands in  this province which are suitable foi'  agricultural purposes, and the fact  that in so many cases a small percentage of the land held by homesteaders in other parts of the Dominion are not actually worked, but  rather held for speculation.  ���������������������������   ,   'It is also likely that lots of a sim-  GEO.

This amend-  ri -  ment is   not   expected    to effect the  acreage held, by    squatters, who will  likely be allowed a full -1 CO acres.  The placing   of    every alternate 40  acres   on    the    market   for   purchase  should  lead  to  the rapid  settling  of  the lands'  in    the    railway   belt,   as  numbers  of thrifty   men  and  women  would like to   have    such a home in  j the   making    who   are    debarred   by.  other interests from  living on  it at  j present, as they would have to under  homestead  regulations.  local   superintendent    will deny this,  but he lives in Vernon.  The canyon road is a sample. You  think that Mr. McKay deserves credit  for the work he has clone. Mr. McKay may have made the most of the  amount that was allowed for the  work, but the road at present is a  botch, as it always has been. All  that has been done to the "road bed  this year appears to have been to fill  up the water holes that lay on the  road, with mud. Our fall rains have  recently started and tlie road is already dotted with water holes, and  the mud in places is four inches deep.  What will it be like in the late fall  and early spring? It will be what it  was at those seasons in previous  years���������������������������impassable for motors, and a  stumbling block for teamsters who  try to get along without swearing.  The people who use the canyon road  have more incentive to riot than the  Ulster Unionists.  I am glad there is another man  made happy, but fancy it would be  interesting to gather statistics of the  number in this district who are made  sore. NORTH OKANAGAN.

STEWART, Pastor.  Editor The Enderby Press:  Sir: In a recent issue of your paper, under the caption "Another Man  Made Happy," you have considerable  ,to say about the  road work that is  ' being done this year. It is gratifying  to know that there is so much being  done in this district to improve old  roads, and to open new sections by  building new ones. I believe that  more money is being spent and more  .work being done on our roads this  season than ever formerly. This is a  step in thc right direction, only it is  about ten years late in coming.

The defeat of R. L. Richardson, the'  Liberal candidate is decisive. The  largest majority received by'the de-.  feated candidate atoany poll was 23_.  On the.other hand, Mr. Morrison received majorities of more than 50 in  a number of polls, and in one instance the majority reached 100.' The  vote, as compared owith the general  election, shows that Mr. Morrison  polled more votes than were cast for  W. D. Staples, Conservative, in September, 1911, while the vote for Mr.  Richardson fell below that polled by  J. S.* Woods, Liberal candidate, in  i the general elections. '    r'  The Toronto News, commenting on  the MacDonald election, . says: "In  thirteen months the Conservative majority in MacDonald has risen from  161 to 837. - In other words, the  Laurier trade policy is five times as  unpopular to-day as it was on September 11, 1911. Never before was  the riding carried by so large a majority', and, as the chief .opposition  organ virtually admits, reciprocity  has sustained its most crushing defeat. The Government victory is especially significant because- MacDonald is in a peculiar degree representative of all Canada. It is part Eng-'  lish and part French. It is part-urban and part rural in character, the  electorate comprising farmers, wage  earners, manufacturers and business  men. . The agricultural element predominates, and* it is noteworthy that  Conservatives gains were even greater  at the urban' poils. Another thing  ���������������������������is. that Macdonald lies in the very  heart of. Canada. It may be said to  stand at the gateway" between east  and.the west, and to partake of the  characteristics of'"both. For this  reasqn its emphatic- decision is all  the more significant and important.  The ' overwhelming defeat of that  cause for which Sir Wilfrid is still  touring the country make's it ������������������������������������������������������ seem  more ' unlikely than ever that he can  again be prime minister. Certainly  he cannot" with his present program,  and the prospect is that the Liberal  party must have new leaders before  itowill-again be entrusted with power.  'stead land hereabouts, thinking tl-cy  would divide it up into smaller holdings thau the usual 1G0 acres. This  step has been obstinately combatted  by the squatters, owing td the broken  character of the bench land. On a  block of 160 acres, they say, it is.not  easy to find more than 10 or\ 20 -acres  'that are level. All is rolling land.  The soil is godd, but the bulk of.the  land will never be good for'anything  except pasture. ' Those attending the  meeting decided to appoint' canvassers to solicit, the district for names  to a petition requesting the Govern-  ment to throw the lands open,.for enl-  try at' once. Five men were, selected  for this work| , with * the result'-that  over 1000 names were secured.!" Tne  canvassing is' still going on,*-and will  be' continued "until every .section of  the, district is .-covered, when the petition will be forwarded to Ottawa^ at  once, and the, co-operation lof Hon.  Martin-Burrell will be askod .to secure  what the   petitioners are asking for.  It is to be hoped this question will  soon be settled," as development work  is greatly retarded on account af.the  uncertainty of the situation.

The Conservatives.of Victoria, tendered a banquet to.-Sir'Richard McBride last Friday evening. Jit was a  love-feast. Speaking of the spirit of  the gathering, the Colonist,'says:  "The banquet tendered, last night to  Sir Richard McBride by thc-Conscrva-  tive  Association    of  Victoria,  was  a  fitting tribute to the guest- of honor.  Whether we regard ,him, as-a private  citizen, as the   loader of a.'party, as  the representative of this city,.as the  Premier of the Province oWas a public man,  who   takes a lively interest,  in Canadian  and Imperial affairs, Sir  Richard    deserves,   as -he enjoys,  the  esteem "and confidence of the people of  this  community.   In every expression  'of popular goodwill towards him the  personal equation  has  its  full share.  Whatever our political leanings may  be, .we. all like him as a man.   But,  while  there    may   have been in last  night's demonstration a great deal of  this -personal  .feeling.-towards  him;  its real   significance   Ues in the .fact  that it wes intended an a recognition  of his services   as   a public man,'as  one who,for. nearly a decade has administered the 2ffairs of. this province  so wisely and well/-that'British Columbia   stands -pre-eminent*,   in    the  British  Empire .in  these  tilings that  add lustre, to the name and-.fame .of  a, new and  growing-country.-   .Whatever else" may. be.saidtcf -Sir -Richard,  however . much , claims en his behalf-  may be disputed,'- none, will deny,.the  statement    that    his  administration  has  brought ��������������������������� "order ~rout  ,cf... chaos, -  placed the .provincial-.credit'.at the;  highest level,-and stimulated", development along many lines." .-,;  ��������������������������� - In this' connection,1 a" few' words u't-  ���������������������������tered  by " Sir '-Richard" "himself/ in Taifi-  s'wer to the many complimentary remarks spoken? by/", his/admirers','," w'i'll"  show   the" spirit' whiclr "animates -'the  Premier in all"his\.public, work"',* -and"  that,  while appreciating^ the',*frecdgni-  ticn shown    him'-C.by- all^'he'yet"feels  that- the real,accomplishments in,the'  final "development - 6������������������ British .Columbia'are no*w .only 'really commencing..  ."'But' even .'with' 'these* splendid *ac-'  complishments, more than ever  do I  believe that we in] B.'.C.;are only at  the commencement .of things; .that we  have not commenced to get into our  stride; "that" we are 'ye"t"in';our "earliest pioneer ', and    preliminary effort,  and that after all the great and -major operations "which-are to bring B.

It seems to me, as I  have watched problem after problem  reach solution in the public works department, where expensive roads have  to be built in mountain fastnesses,  that these conditions only serve to  nrake the cabinet and the parliament  more energetic than ever; that they  only serve to bring about a more  fixed determination, no matter how  difficult conditions are, they must  grapple with them. The problem  must be solved; trunk roads must be  extended north, south, east and west,  until we have a general system  throughout the province which shall  be second to none the world ovei. ]  do not wish to indulge in idle language in this regard. We have the  money on hand and in sight to undertake' many of these problems, an.1 if  we feel sure, as we do, that there .will  with the solution of Better Terms, be  the bringing to us of millions more,-  we can provide for all these works  and trunk road building that these  western .conditions demand." .

"I would refer first to the necessity  for trunk line roads and for lateral  ��������������������������� roals, and the proper projection and  development,, where the section of the  country will j-.istify it, of pioneering  trails.

I  heard but a few days ago from  friends who were visiting this province from the east, and who had  driven over some of the.roads on the  Island, that in this section of the  country we , had thc -finest trunk  roads in the Dominion of Canada.  There can be no question of this, but  the trouble is that wc have not got  enough of them."

Canada. ,-  "It is my firm conviction," said  Hon. Price Ellison, on his return to  Victoria a few days ago, "that if agriculture is to be properly developed  in this province, some means must be  found of supplying the farmers with  cheap money. Tho province has several million dollars on hand and I  cannot see why. it should not be  loaned to the farmers at a low rate  of interest instead of being loaned to  the banks."  Mr. Ellison had just returned from  Revelstoke, where he opened the fair.  He has also visite'l a number of  other fall fairs this year and has been  much gratified at thc progress shown  hoth in the exhibits and the attendance. "Nevertheless," said he, "we  are not making much progress towards raising for ourselves the fourteen million dollars of farm'produce  that we now import annually. In  fact, I doubt if our agriculture is  more than keeping pace with the  growth of population in other lines,  if, indeed, it is doing that much. Until we embark upon some extended  policy of agricultural development,  we must be content to continue as an  importer of farm products."  With regard to the question of irrigation Mr. Ellison still adheres to  his opinion that irrigation works  might profitably be undertaken by the  Provincial Government. "At Penticton and Summerland," said he, "the  systems are being worked successfully  by ' the municipalities, having been  taken over from the company. This  is just an example of what can be  done, but municipally-owned systems  would hardly suit most parts of the  province, because the irrigation areas  and the municipal areas do not coin-  ! cide.       Experience   has    sh,own that  'companies are not making a success  j of irrigation projects and at the same  time they are charging the farmer too  high a price for water.  !    "When   I   first    advanced the view  !that irrigation should bc undertaken  !by  the province,  I was strongly  op-  1 posed by Mr. Fulton,    who was then  ! provincial    treasurer,    on the ground  that the scheme could not be made to j  pay.     Thato objection has now com- '  pletely   disappeared.       Not only can  ; British Columbia    get all the money  it wants at a   low    rate of interest,  !but it has   plenty    of   money in the  'bank and    might   very   well    devote  some of it to this purpose."  |   Mr. Ellison, is further of the opinion  that if something   were   done along-  'these lines,    there   would be no cliffi-  'culty in getting settlers to go on the  'irrigated   lands.       "A settler going  on such lands," said he, "ancl paying  a charge of two   or   three dollars a  .year to cover principal and  interest,  , would be in better position than one  [ who took a pre-emption, on bush land  land undertook to clear it himself.  j    "There is much    more land in this  ! province suitable for irrigation than  !has   been    generally    supposed,    and  there is plenty    of''water to do it if  handled  properly.      Agricultural  settlers are only    coming to us in driblets because    of   tbe   greater attractions of the   prairie   country, but I  !believe this,could be cured by the province going in for    a system of irrigation   and   by    lending the farmers  ! money    with   which   -to get started.  | Money has been lent in this way with  great success in    Australia and New  Zealand and I see   no reason.why it  'should not be a success here."  DRY   FARMING    CONGRESS  JUST TO SEE THE OLD PLACE  *        Mr. F. Appleton, of Vi-';;ov:a, has  been*- enjoying... one. nf- :_':e-i*.aPi>H*st  periods of .his- life in the Okanagan  the past week or ten .lay?. In the-  early life of -Enderby,, Mr. Appleton  was owner and manager of the Enderby Flouring Mills. At th.it time  Enderby was the only village nf any  importance in the Oka:uv.;an. H������������������.n.  Price Ellison, in those clays.^ wotul  frepuently mount a loa'd of grain at  his farm at Vernon, and drive :i fu*-*r  horsc team to the Enderby gri.-jt mill.  Naturally the grist mill owner was  known and esteemed by everyone,  and in turn knew and esteemed everybody. Later Mr. Appleton sold an  interest in the flour mill to Mr. Moffet, who assumed the management,  and is still - producing Moffet's Best.  Mr. Appleton's visit to the Okanagan is to meet some of the friends  of the 'days of yore. He first visited  Vernon, and there met Mr. Heggie,  Mr. Costerton, and other old-time  Enderbyites.     He   is now spending a  lew^lays witlf^Mrr=arird^Mrsr;;=At=l3r  Fortune, and visiting other friends of  early days from this hospitable home.  Mr. Appleton is delighted to note  the advances made in Enderby. It  was Mr. Appleton who, many years  ago took up the matter of a trail  from Enderby to Salmon Arm, with  the Provincial government.
