Some fifteen or twenty years ago the  Indian Department of. the, United  States Government concluded it was  possible to make the Indian tribes,on  the reservations industrious, .and  their industry a benefit to the 'country as well as to themselves-. The  large tracts of land held, by them'  were, turned, into money, and this  money was spent Jn ��������������������������� buying them'  farming implements,, building better  homes, providing public schools and-  open churches. Competent' teachers  were placed-amongst.them on the reserves, and the Indian children- were  given "an education;', while the men  were taught the science-of agricul-  culture. - The r Indians .entered, into  the: game willingly and > responded, to  tHe teaching" in a ,- manner that-surprised the Department.

Three hundred names have already  been placed upon the voter's list  from Enderby. All who have not yet  made application are urged to do so  this week, as the list will close on  April 7th. Application forms may be  had at the office of The Walker Press  at the City Hall, or from A. F.  Crossman, T. E. Rodie, F. H.Barnes,  N. H. Kenny, Jas. Johnson or Jas.  Mowat.  Willey Barrows met with a very  painful accident while driving out of  Vernon early Tuesday morning for  one of the lumber camps in the vicinity of Jjumby. The team he was  driving took fright and ran away,  throwing Mr. Barrows out of the rig  and breaking his leg in the fall. He  is now in the Vernon Hospital, where  every care is given him, and his recovery is only a question of a few  weeks.  Miss Ella Airth and Tommy Brash  quietly purchased tickets for Vernon  Wednesday morning. Each had a  trunk checked. Later it was learned  that Mr. Brash and Miss Airth were  married in the Presbyterian church,  Vernon, on Wednesday. From Vernon Mr. and Mrs. Brash will go to  Chase, where they will reside.

Then he said to his companions that  he was not feeling quite right and  asked one of them to_ get the break- .'  fast. He seated himself on the bed  and was joining in the general conversation when he fell back upon the  bed and was dead. Undertaker English was notified" and the body was  brought to Enderby, where it awaits  instructions for burial from the East.  ADDITIONAL GAME WARDEN  It is reported from Victoria that  an additional game warden is to be  appointed for the Okanagan district,  one for- the northern end of the district and one for the southern end.  The people of Mara are asking for  the appointment of George Little for  this end. Nobody knows the district to be covered better than Mr.  Little, and his appointment, if made  would no doubt work out satisfactorily to the Department.  Agriculture will of course be offered them as a means of employing  their spare time and every inducement-will be presented to obtain the  Indians' interest in farming. Mr.  Fleetham believes this is a big step,  but is confident that success can be  obtained. Recently a portion of the  Sarcee reservation was announced for  saler~the~ "Indians waivirig~~all"the,ir~  claims to a number of acres. The  money obtained by the sale of the  land will be used to purchase" farm  implements, horses and wagons for  Indians of the reservation that manifest a desire to try mixed farming.  The result of this scheme will be  watched with interest by the Government, and if thc plan succeeds the  same system will be employed on all  other reservations in the Dominion.

WALTEl. ROBINSON  Secretary  The San Joaquin Valley, California, is one of the most fertile districts in America. It is a typical  garden of Eden. Fruits of all kinds  are produced abundantly, and the'  output of the Valley has for many  years brought prosperity to the fruit  growers and small farmers there.  In their   prosperity the white men  in years past   built    up communities  of beautiful  ings,  schools," etc. There are sections -in  the Sah Joaquin Valley which are,  or were, in fact earthly paradises,  where there was peace and plenty,  and the contentment that comes as  the reward of good business and community integrity.  It was only a few years ago that  one of the towns we knew well had a  white population of 1500 people. It  was a beautiful city, and happiness  was pictured ,pn every face you met  in the street. t There was not a sign  of want to be seen anywhere.  At that time the white men used to  employ Chinese   to handle their prolific harvest when the supply of white  men and boys and girls became short.  That was some time before the Japanese invasion.     Then the  Jap came  into the Valley.     He came in hordes.  He took ' the    work of   fruit picking  and packing at    a   figure'below that  demanded    by    the   Chinese and the  white boys and girls.     The fruit men  thought they had at last solved the  labor "problem.     In    a year the Chi-  ncse pickers had been crowded out of  the orchards   and   .were, replaced by  Japanese.   Then    the- white men and  the boys and    girls    followed.   Soon  there was no    work for anybody but  the    Japanese.       Then   up went the  wage scale.       By   this time the district had    been   turned    over to  Japanese, so    far   as   laborers  were  concerned, ancl    when  the wage scale  was jumped up   on the fruit growers !  they had    to   submit or allow their  crop to    rot   in   the   orchard  Japs had the district in the palm of  their hand.      Having secured control  of the labor end of the fruit industry  it was only a step farther to getting  control of   the    orchards themselves.  They set    systematically to work to  secure this object.       Not by one fell  swoop did they do it,- nor apparently  by    any   concerted    action.        They  picked out the weaker ones and went  after__them_._ When harvest time ar-  Sacramento, Cal., March 20.���������������������������Bitter denunciation of the land' laws of  California that have permitted the  growth of Japanese farming communities in many parts of the state  was made yesterday by a delegation  of San Joaquin Valley farmers before  the Senate Commission on the judiciary in connection with a demand  for an anti-alien land law. Threats  of adopting summary measures to  drive out the Japanese if the legisla^  ture fails to give relief were made.   -  BLANCHARD & ENGLISH  INSTITUTE  MEMBERS  BENEFIT  It cost just 50c a year to become a  member  of    the    Farmers'   Institute.  For this small   amount members get  all    the    literature,    pamphlets,    reports,    expert   opinions,  etc., issued  by .the    Department " of Agriculture,  free admission   to   all lectures given  through    the   Department  under the  auspices of the Institutes; special reduced rates    on   seeds,   sprays, etc.,  and in addition   to all these advantages,  members   are   enabled to save  the sum    of   $2������������������.50    on every box of  stumping powder bought through the  Institute.     It is the most satisfying  expenditure a rancher can make.  C. S. Handcock, Grindrod, is the  secretary, to whom membership fees  can be paid, or, for the convenience  of those not able to get in touch  with Mr. Handcock, arrangements  have been made whereby the membership fee may be paid.at the office of  The Walker Press and official receipt  given therefor. All names should be  handed in as soon as possible so as  to make sure of getting all the valuable literature issued by the Department.  And still    another   concession   has  been made through the efforts of the  government in    the interest of Institute members.       A circular has just  been issued   by ��������������������������� the   Department to  members     of    Institutes,    informing  them of - the correct procedure-in- obtaining,  stumping     powder   through  their Institutes at the reduced price  of ,?5 per case - f.    o. b. the factory,  and  at    the    special   transportation  rates obtained for them by the Government from the railway company.  If the    Institute   does not carry a  tbe j stock of powder on hand, it may be  j ordered   by   members    of    Institutes  'through    the   respective    secretaries,  and can be obtained,from "either the  I Canadian  Explosives,  Ltd.,   Victoria,  T}ie i or the Giant Powder Co., Vancouver,  WE are determined to give the people of  Enderby and District the best quality of  Household Furnishing on the market, at live-  and-let-live prices, and solicit your patronage.

The foxy Jag^nese  worked Lhe season for Lhe owner and  then when harvest time came threw  the "owner "over." ~ Later an "offer  would come for the placc from a  white agent of the Japanese and, if  Lhc sale was noL made that season  it would be thc next, for similar tactics would be pursued by Lhe Jap  laborers against the owner, ancl thc  price offered the second season would  ba less than the first offer.  Quietly and systematically the Japanese worked like an army of ants at  a sugar barrel. One by one the  orchards fell into their hands. When  they had control of a few of them  it was not so diflicult Lo squeeze out  thc larger owners. They did not  know what they were up against until it was too late. Their solution  of the labor problem proved to be  their downfall. Today, this favored  section has been turned over to thc  Japanese. Where, ten years ago,  there was a population of 1500 white  people in that town, with prosperity  smiling from every window, there are  not more than SIX white families.  The balance are Japanese. And the  district surrounding this town is as  completely in the hands of the little  yellow men.

This hidden  and insidious sqlidness, if I may use  the term, is peculiarly characteristic  of raw cow.'s milk, as compared with  boiled cow's milk or human milk.

Chances are,  in your whole life-time you never sat  down and deliberately schemed a cold  blooded campaign .of slander against  your worst enemy. And it's just because you are so that you're1'such a  menace   to    society.  There now, don't begin to sputter  and protest. We expected you. to  grow excited when you were indicted.  Yoy quite honestly believe that this  is an arraignment undeserved; you're  quite sincere in your belief that' you  are harmless.

Or  it might have happened when you  were making a social call, and instead of it being Mr. Brown, it was j  Mrs;- Brown,--of -Miss Brown. - -You  didn't pause to consider the source of  your information.

Notice the boy, who plays  football seriously and earnestly and  you will see that he is the mainstay  of the team,  through the  about it, and he generally makes his  gain. When he tackles his man he  does it seriously. He takes no  chances and he brings clown his man,  The preacher who delivers his sermon  earnestly and seriously is the one  who sends conviction home to the  hearer. It is not the.one who scatters ' his smiles and metaphors and  flowers of rhetoric broadcast in a  mechanical fashion who comes bringing in the sheaves. It is tbe earnest  serious solicitor who makes us take  out a life insurance policy or,, buy a  ticket in the lottery, not the josher.  To do earnestly is to do well.���������������������������The  h 'mif,  _  There is a lull in the proceedings  at Ottawa this week owing to the  Easter holidays. An official an-  ��������������������������� nouncement has been issued by Sir  I Wilfrid Laurier setting forth the position of the Opposition, in which,.he  ���������������������������attempts to show that the Government is solely responsible for the ob-  "struction tactics of himself and fol-  lowers. xVt the same time an official  ' announcement has been issued by the  government to the effect that notice  of closure will be given as soon as  the House reassembles. In it is  shown that 232 hours of discussion  have been allowed on the second  clause. It shows .that the Government has no intention of dropping  tbe bill or compromising. The  change in the rules which it is proposed to make so that business can  be expedited have already been_ drafted. Whether they will be pressed  or not depends entirely on the action  of the Liberals. If they give any  evidence of allowing the bill to go  through and do not start again on  their general obstruction of the  country's business, the amendment  will not be pressed. ' If they pursue  their same tactics ��������������������������� there is but the  one course stated left for.the Premier  Most of thc Liberal members- are welcoming the' closure as a way out of  difficulties. - It gives them a way to  get out 'of an awkward -situation  honorably and in addition gives them  another chance to yell."free speech,"  of which a  made.  mockery has already.been  MAIL CONTRACT  SEALED TENDERS, addressed to  the Postmaster General, will be received at Ottawa until noon, on Friday, the 25th April, 1913, for the  conveyance of His Majesty's Mails,  on a proposed Contract for four  years, fourteen times per week each  way, between Enderby and Railway  Station from the Postmaster General's pleasure.

Hall on Wednesday, April 2nd, at 1.30 p.m. 'to take  up the matter of the purchase of  pure-bred bulls, boars and rams, supplied by the Government. Also to  discuss the matter of freight rates  on powder.  It is the intention of the Government to enable Institutes to secure  pure-bred stock for the use of members on.the direct understanding that  Institute will be responsible for the  same, the payments to be extended  over a period of three years.  It is hoped that the action of the  Department of Agriculture in - this  matter will be appreciated by Institutes throughout the Province, and  will be taken advantage of "fully, as  the opportunity for the improvement  of the quality of stock is one that  should be taken advantage of. The  following plan has been decided upon  hy the Department, and requisition  papers must be signed by the Institute secretaries:  Bulls will be sold on*" the following  terms' One-third of purchase price  when bull is delivered, one-third in-  one year from the date bull is delivered, and one-third at two years  from date of delivery.

SYSTEMATIC BREEDING  As a means of furthering the policy  of developing the poultry interests of  the Dominion in which the Live Stock  Branch of the Department of Agriculture is actively engaged, the Live  Stock Commissioner is anxious to secure the name and address of each  breeder of poultry in Canada who is  systematically endeavoring to improve the quality of his stock, particularly from the standpoint of increased egg and meat production.  The information is desired in order  that the Live Stock Branch may be  brought more closely in touch with  progressive poultrymen throughout  the Dominion and with those whose  names might be eligible for inclusion  in a Dominion poultry directory.  As a means of securing this information, in part at least, all those  who are interested are requested to  write the Live Stock Commissioner,  Ottawa, indicating:  A(a) The breed, variety and strain  or family of   poultry they are breed-  THE  SCHOOL  ACT  Every child from the age of seven  to 14 inclusive shall attend school  during the regular school hours every  day, subject to the following exemptions:  1.

McCURDY, 503 Temple Building, TORONTO  THE    REASONABLE VIEW  An opinion held by many Englishmen is voiced by the London Pall  Mall Gazette which urges that since  Canada, by her emergency contribution has shown her co-operative feeling, the interests of thc Empire  would be greatly strengthened by the  making of provision for Canadian  shipbuilding in the Dominion's permanent policy, which it is proposed  to initiate at the Imperial Conference  at Vancouver. The Pall Mall further indicates that the establishment  in this hour of crisis of Canadian  yards for the construction of big  warships might provide a remedy  which would be worse than the disease, as the Canadian yards could  only be manned by drawing upon the  British sources of skilled labor.which  are already inadequate for the urgent  needs at home. This difficulty will,  however, be overcome in a1 few years  if, as is hoped, the trades unions relax the severe limitations now placed  upon thc entry of apprentices. Even  without the diversion of any skilled  labor to Canada, the pressure of  work in the navy yards is at the*  present time so great that the -Government will probably be compelled  to take drastic action with a view to  applying to. British warships the  skilled labor now employed by Vick-  ers' Sons & Maxim and at the Els-  wick yards, in building cruisers and  battleships for Japan, Chili, Brazil  and Turkey.  "The development of the Canadian  shipyards, which Mr. Borden proposes, if carried out gradually can  be prosecuted without the disturbance of our national establishments  and can be adapted ultimately to  any naval policy the Canadian people may approve." The Pall Mall  Gazette continues: "These are considerations based upon questions of  hard fact and the ��������������������������� Liberal party of  Canada must surely realize that they  can and must- bc urged without the  slightest wish of intervening in the  domestic, affairs, of' "the" Dominion.  Nothing in the .world can diminish  Canada's freedom to choose the path  she will, but inasmuch as her development must affect our own we are  entitled to state the conditions from  our point of view."  'CANNED MUSIC"  "As the result of the action of the  Government of British Columbia in  issuing some 170 so-called free licenses to fishermen and also in allowing new concerns to commence  operations upon the already overfished rivers of the north, thus discriminating against the older established firms who have had to pay  heavily in the past for the privileges  which they now possess, the canning  industry of the Province will be utterly demoralized within a very  short space of time."  Get Job Printing at The Walker Press  "This sweeping and, in some ways,  startling statement was made to a  representative of The Sun yesterday  by a gentleman who is an accepted  authority upon the canning industry,  but who docs not wish to have his  name published at thc present time  for obvious reasons."  The above extract is from the Vancouver Sun.   It~"~is"a~ sample of "The  Sun's political    guff    which it dishes  up daily to tne amusement of a wide  circle of friendsf     It is "canned music]'1 prepared    for   the delectation of  its followers   and   to keep the mare  in oats.     It   always comes from "a  gentleman    high    in    authority   who  does not care for obvious reasons to  let his name be known."     Fortunately thc political   rays of The Sun are  not taken seriously; they do not melt  much ice.     For instance, take in the  excerpt above:     The    canning industry is going to pot because the Government has issued 170 so-called free  licenses to white fishermen; it is also  going to pot because the Government  has    allowed    new   concerns to commence     operations   in     competition  with the old-established firms !   It is  really going to pot because the Government   has    made   it    possible for  more white men to get into the business:    utterly   demoralized in a very  short   space    of   time   because more  fishermen are   to   be allowed to fish  and more canneries   are to be established to can   more   fish to supply a  greater market !   The  old-established  I firms, with  their   supply connections  and markets well in hand for years,  are to be knocked into a cocked hat  by the Government issuing 170 free  licenses to white men to fish ! BAD  Government;  naughty Government ! ,  THE STORM  WAVE  Three weeks ago Foster's weather  bulletin foretold the approach of thc  storm wave that has swept the Pacific Northwest within the past week.  In the southern lake portion of the  Okanagan the storm was quite severe  the wind sweeping the lake with  great velocity. In Vancouver there  was quite a severe snow storm, the  first March snow they have had for  twenty years or more. In the North  West blizzards and tornadoes of the  most destructive type have swept the  country. The westbound train from  Montreal was tied up nearly two  days by the severity of the storm.  In Nebraska fully two hundred persons were killed outright, hundreds  of others injured, ancl the property  loss is estimated in hundreds of  thousands. In Omaha there was the  most appalling catastrophe that ever  has visited that city. - A tornado  swept through the city in an almost  straight path from four to six blocks  wide and more than eight miles long.  Throughout the stricken district the  streets are filled with masses of debris from wrecked houses and uprooted trees and tangled electric  wires.  (. We can more pleasantly accept the  frosty mornings of the past week,  which have prevailed in Enderby,  after reading of the severity of the  storm elsewhere.  CITY  OF  VERNON,  B. C.
