He is endeavoring to get "rea'dy'to start the  saws early in April.  Rev. E. W. Halpenny," an Ontario  Methodist preacher, it credited with  an epigram which is now being much  quoted by his ministerial brethren,  though we haven't yet- heard it in  Enderby. He was preaching in a big-  city church, noted for its many social" and literary organizations, its  clubs,  classes,  societies  and  leagues.  .There was... .somethin g?_-r)n--for--.every_,  night in the week���������������������������sometimes two or  three events on the same night. Mr.'  Halpenny read the ��������������������������� long list of announcements. Then a little later, in  the course of his sermon, he remarked that "some people were so  terribly busy with church work and  keeping the preacher in line that  they hadn't time to be Christians."  The, last meeting of the court of  Revision on the assessment of 1913  was held in the City Hall 'on Monday  evening.

Every effortf-rs. being made to have  all those who . are qualified to vote  registered -cfhZ the new Provincial  lists, which are now in course of preparation. An' entirely new register  is being prepared to that those who  had votes in the last Provincial election will have to again subscribe-to  their qualifications, as well as those  who are newcomers to the Province,  and whoge names have not yet appeared on the voters' list. The necessary forms to be signed may be  found with the City Clerk, at the  City Hall; with A. F. Crossman, F.  H. Barnes, T. E." Rodie or at The  Walker Press. All applications are  to be handed in or mailed to the  Government Agent, Mr. L. Norris,  Vernon, before April 7th.

The  engineers are to have submitted to  them all matters of public works,  and they agree to furnish all plans  and specifications, estimates, etc.,  and to superintend all work undertaken under these plans and specifications, and to perform all such services in a thoroughly practical and  competent" manner.  In compensation for these services,  the City agrees to'pay Messrs.

But   for the intervention  of     Premier     Borden   their    scheme  might   have   worked     out   as   they  hoped.'     It is    said that Rev.  J. A.  Macdonald, editor ol the Globe, who  has   'been   here    during   the last few  days,    Hon. > Mackenzie    King,  Hon.  Sidney Fisher,- along with Hon. Wm.  Pugsley and Hon.  Rudolphe Lemieux  were responsible    for ��������������������������� the whole disgraceful affair.     Rev. Dr. Macdonald  stationed himself in a prominent position in the press gallery, and there  abused, .the' privileges   of*both the  press gallery and the House by pub-  licly egging on the Liberal members'  and applauding the- disorderly scenes.  -It was at-a given signal from Hon."

Premier Borden  suggested that" the gentleman who  was leading the " Opposition might  make a statement. Mr. Graham  looked at Mr. Pugsley and Mr. Pugsley looked" at Mr.' Graham. Buth  showed embarrassment, and neither  arose. ,- The situation was awkward  until thc Premier laughingly suggested that probably the member for  " ���������������������������'&:  BUYING AT HOME  A man went into a local store, to  buy a saw.

The plan  was to have Dr. Clark, representing  the British born, and Alphonse Verville, representing the Labor and  French element, so defy the rules and  S o-ith^Ren frew~(MFTT_.fS_.am)   might  speak for the Opposition.  The absence of Sir Wilfrid Laurier  from the House all last week has  caused a great deal of comment  around the corridors. While it is  stated that he is suffering from a  cold, it is also stated that it is not'  so severe that he might not have  been-present-if-hc-had-desired.-���������������������������It-is  rumored that he is not' in sympathy  with the lino of action which "has  been followed by the ex-cabinet ministers and Rev. J. A. Macdonald,  who seems to have usurped control  of the party. It is also said that  when Sir Wilfrid returns to -the  Ho.use this week, that the obstruction will be dropped and the tlill  will be allowed to go through within  a reasonable period of time as suggested by Premier Borden.  ., WHAT IT FEELS LIKE     ,' .  ;A young man who received an injection-of the turtle baccillus, administered -by Dr. Friedmann while in  New York, claims to have materially  .improved, __.and_-tells--_an-_intp.rfiRting^  '.���������������������������fli  .'"X'  CARD OF THANKS  I wish to convey my sincerest  thanks to the people of Enderby and  vicinity for the many acts of kindness and sympathy extended on the  occasion of Mrs.- Boyd's illness and  in my great bereavement.

We have read a vast  amount of childish    twaddle in Hansard the past   two weeks.     Some of  I the Opposition speakers are apparently talking   in    their    sleep.   It must  jniake them sick to   read in Hansard  ��������������������������� what they said    the night before.   It  ; certainly is making thc country sick.  I The  Opposition speakers have talked  incessantly for two weeks, night and  day, and the Government forces have  , listened as patiently as Father Time  might    have   done.       But all to no  READING,    ENGLAND I purpose.      Sir Wilfrid Laurier claims  it is not his   fault, as he feels there  is an    important   principle involved.  Premier Borden,    on the other hand,  maintains  that    the    Government  is  entitled, after   a fair amount of discission, to have its proposed legisla:  tion  passed on division.   In tiie face  of the full text of the Churchill memorandum,    it    is   difficult to see any  reason for   hope   ,on the part of the  Opposition for anything *to be gained ;  by further    obstructing the country's  business.

A striking criticism of the present system has been  given by Mr. R. H. Patterson, a  prominent English economist, as follows:  "This    theory    of   specie-basis     is  briefly this:   If mych gold happens to  come into the country,  the note cir-  ' culation is likely - to be increased to  a  corresponding    extent;    if   gold is  ; withdrawn  from us the note circula-1  ,'tion  is   proportionately    diminished.  If, owing to   a   temporary cause, all  the gold available for monetary purposes were sent    abroad, all our pa-  -per money would  likewise disappear,  'and the country be left without money of any   kind.       A   more    absurd  theory    was   never   propounded.     If  one kind  of money fails  us,  we are  I on no account to use any other. This  ' we are told to   regard as a master-  ^ piece  of   economical   science;  this is  the great discovery which our advances in  civilization    have revealed  to  p us.     The gospel of rn_onet-ary science  now is, that when a country does not  want a paper currency it should have  :a great deal of it, and  when it does  require   paper   money    it shall have  inone.      When a country    has enough'  of specie it ought to double its cur-  i rency by issuing an equal amount of  bank notes.     Is it necessary to discuss such a theory?    In order to be  refuted it needs only to be stated; in  order to be rejected it needs only to  be understood.       Tt   is a theoretical  monstrosity   against    which common  sense revolts���������������������������a    burlesque of reason  which   the   present    generation    will  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.

Limited  :      ��������������������������� \  Ottawa, March 15.���������������������������The end of the  .econd week of Liberal obstruction  finds the Government forces more  united, if that be possible, than at  any time this session. There is a  general feeling that' the Liberals are  simply 'bringing about their own des-  struction by their unbridled tongues.  Some of their speeches this week can  only be described as advocating separation or secession.  Enraged at the memorandum of the  Right Hon. Winston Chjirchill, which  practically annihilates the" whole  present Liberal position on the naval  question, the Opposition fairly ran  amuck and heaped torrents of abuse  on the head of the first lord of the  admiralty. They accused him of almost every kind of misdemeanor, and  read into his memorandum a studied  insult to the'" Canadian people. In  the heat of their rage statements  were made , of a most disgraceful  character, which it is doubtful if the  men in cooler moments would ever  have uttered.  Dr. Neely, Liberal-member for Humboldt, even hinted at another Boston  Tea Party,' and 'a second American  revolution if the Borden plan was put  into execution. His closing remarks  were: "Mr. Churchill's policy, if per  siste"d in, will ultimately-lead to the  disruption of' Canada from Great  Britain."    _'  He "charged Mr. Churchill and Mr.  Borden with having .plotted last summer to adopt a contribution of cash  or ships as a .permanent- policy, with  centralization in England of-the control,of all naval forces of the-empire.  He -'vehemently declared ,'that -the  prime'minister was.embarking onthe"  same-policy.which lost; Great "Britain  its greatest- possessions, "the American -colonies.." ��������������������������� __:-** ////���������������������������/ V:v- -yy:  ��������������������������� Another-. tirade rfollowed^when'.Dr'.'  K[cely''.declared/ ..that-the Government  ���������������������������-was, reverting' to;conditions . of years  gone' by- when ---their;, forefathers had  b? fig'ht "against, .tyranny. It  '-"I am riot-willing," "he exclaimed",  "to .sell the freedom'of this"country  to .manage" its own" affairs''for any  political expediency or gain." *  ;'The rights of the people," he said/  "to govern themselves .are being- bar-  ered away for "political advantage."  -  Hon. H. R. Emmerson's injudicious  utterances are    causing even his Liberal friends to shake their heads.    In  The cost "of laying down the plant  alone would, at a rough estimate, be  approximately ������������������15,000,000 "and it  could not be ready for four years.  Such an outlay could only be justified on the assumption that Canada  is to keep up a continuous naval  building programme to turn out a  succession of ships after the fashion  of.the largest r shipyards in Great  Britain and Europe."  In a letter to Mr. Borden, dated  Jan. 24th, Mr. 'Ch-urchill refers to the  first cost of the Town class cruisers.  In this letter Mr. Churchill shows  that the cost could not be prudently  estimated at less than 25 or 30 per  cent higher than in 1909-10, when the  Australian agreement was made. ^As  to the cost of manning the" ships and  maintaining them in an efficient manner, he states that it would'be two-  thirds higher 'in Canada than in the  Imperial navy. In this connection  the first lord of the admiralty writes  as follows:  "Apart from the reply to your immediate question, it seems desirable  to'comment on another point. The  admiralty will'of course loyally en:  deavor to facilitate the development  of any practicable naval policy which  may commend "itself to "Canada;-.'-but  the prospects f of their-being able'to'  co-operate to-anyr great extent-in  manning the units is now much less  than it, would" have been" at the time  of the Imperial conference of 1909..

Box 524  POLITICAL  DURING the past season the  Department of Agriculture of  the Province sent Air Wrr*.  Schulmerich, of Hillsboro, Oregon,  through this district to lecture under  the auspices of the various Farmers'  Institutes on the subject of stock  raising. In his lectures at Enderby  and Mara, Mr. Schulmerich paid a  glowing tribute to this section of the  Okanagan Valley. In all of his 28-  years' experience as a stock breeder  and farmer, he said he had not seen  a section of country so well adapted  to stock raising and mixed farming.  He doubted if anything better could  be found anywhere . !He saw growing  here the finest of fruits, the best of  alfalfa and other forage crops, and  vegetables ancl roots and cereals as  good -as can be grown anywhere. It  is simply an ideal spot for the farmer, according to Mr. Schulmerich.  "I do not know of any district in  the United States or Canada more  favored than your valley,"'said he.  "You have such a' variety of soils,  suitable for growing anything, even  subtropical crops. ���������������������������> You have your  benches producing the finest winter  apples, your bottoms for hay, grain,  poultry and stock raising, where alfalfa grows to such perfection and  I clovers are as a weed. You have  your muck soil for vegetables and  celery, and from what I hear, the  finest tobacco in B. C. can be grown  here.  ."Nature has endowed  you with an  abundant   rainfall, ������������������ so   that you  do  not have to irrigate, and you have a  wonderful climate, and a railroad at  your door.  "Gentlemen,    though  you  may  not  know it, you have a paradise here. I  know what a   bush    farm means and  the hard struggle you have had, but,  believe me, thc    time is coming,  and  that shortly,    when  you  are coming  jinto your own.     The Northern Oka-  inagan   Valley,  though   now  comparatively    unknown,    will    be  the most  i famous valley in B. G."  These    words   were   spoken b'y Mr.  Schulmerich  at an Institute meeting  held   here   early    last year,  and the  tone and manner of the speaker conveyed   how    thoroughly convinced he  was in   what   he   had    to say.     He  was  speaking   from  his. twenty-eight  years'   experience as a practical  suc-  ��������������������������� cessful farmer and stock raiser.     He  i was speaking from a thorough knowledge of    men   and    conditions.     He  had - good  reason    to be confident  of  I what he said.  | Grapes, cherries, plums, pears, apples, vegetables, roots, grain, celery,  tobacco and the lugumes can all be  grown here, ancl the abundant rainfall and mild winters make dairying  or any branch of stock raising, industries that are sure of success if  the person engaging in them has any  knowledge at all of them.  For either the man who wishes to  specialize in one branch of agriculture, or to go into mixed farming,  we know of no more suitable district  than the Northern Okanagan.  is held the largest poultry show in  the Interior, which is largely supported by its business men; and here  I think, we have shown it is possible  to raise poultry in the northern end  of the Sunny Okanagan for "Profit,  Prizes and Pleasure."

The following  spring he had a paying crop of vegetables off of one acre of the land.  The next year he had another acre  cleared and planted to strawberries,  and the next season he had four  acres into crop. His crops exceeded  anything he ever had experienced in  all his years^ of market gardening in  England.  "I was a market gardener in England for ten years," said he, "prior  to my coming to B. C. It took me  a considerable time looking around  B. C. for a suitable soil, but I found  what I was looking for at Enderby.  I consider the subsoil and climate  here perfect; also I find a first-class  market, for all manner of vegetables.  Tomatoes and cucumbers ripen out  of doors; while onions are a splendid  paying proposition and do exoeeding-  ; ly well. Potatoes average me eight  ] tons to the acre, and I sell them at  .$20 a ton. Asparagus and celery  also are in great demand; in fact,  there is no vegetable that cannot be  grown here satisfactorily.

If  we are to judge from its contents,  we have not "barked up the wrong  tree." Our comment relating to the  purchase of the cemetery site was intended purely in the light of compliance with a public duty. We believe it is poor policy to borrow  money from- the bank against the  credit of the^ general revenue to purchase something, however good, that  has not yet been passed upon by the  ratepayers. It is not a safe policy  to pursue, though in this case we  hope and believe good will result, if  the Council brings before the people  a properly planned   proposition put  stating that the minutes do not contain the exact words expressed by us  reporting the meeting. He is not  correct, however, in stating that we  did not correctly report the proceedings. His contention seems to be  based upon a quibble, and is misleading.     Our report read:  "Acting Mayor Worthington stated  that he had closed the deal with Mr.  Williams, and had instructed that a  deed of the land be prepared. Arrangements were to be made with the  Bank of Montreal for the cash to  make the purchase."  The actual reading of the minutes  is as follows:  "His Worship, the acting mayor,  reported- that steps had been taken  to obtain a deed to the land in question "'  A distinction if not a difference.
