INCREASE  FIRE LIMITS  Official Enderby should either increase the restricted fire limit or  repeal the stringent law now in force  in the confined business centre of the  town. At present the law works the  rankest kind of injustice. It has  been in force three years, or nearly  so, and in all that time there have  been but two buildings erected within the fire limits under its restrictions. . At the same time there has  been erected on Cliff - street, just  across the street from the restricted  district' a chain of frame buildings  that from a fire - standpoint are a  menace, not only .to the restricted  district, .but also to tbe pretty  homes erected there before the .menace appeared. Official EnderSy, in  allowing these buildings to go up has  'City Council Brings  and Strikes the  A meeting of the City Council was  held Tuesday evening, the Mayor- and  all members present.   .  The principal business of the meeting was the passing of the Cemetery  Purchase By-law two readings, and  getting out the. estimates for the  present year, and fixing the tax levy.  No doubt there will be many rate  payers who - will, to indulge street  parlance, "sit ' up and take notice?  when they realize what, the levy will  be, but' on second thought" they, will  recognize < that we cannot have the  good things without paying for them.  -As a matter of fact, ' the new  school ,building," interest on bonds,  principal  and  maintenance, .(estimat-  permitted a rank   injustice upon" its in|-#raailltenance for the'last three or  citizens, , 'It '.has. endangered- -thejfour.months.of .the   ^ only)" wiU  homes of   many,    increased their -fire _i^-,_> k������������������, ���������������������������,������������������~-.r.-"    '       iz-i\ li;  J       . .= v -, -    alone be nearly   one   mill more ��������������������������� than  ila/1     +Vi__-.t*������������������- *nr/\������������������.orfir " -. ~ . >, ,  risks, and depreciate'd-" their - property  value as homes or for anything but  shell .business.L'blocksj*7"forr no .man  could think of erecting anything-.but  a shell- at very littj^cost along side  ofr.the;frame"rstructures'now'-up.'-y--.. *  ;In. another sense-, it has checked  the"building up of the restricted territory, for no business man, can safely, put money , into... a costly block  in a, restricted district - two blocks  either way, with-frame structures on  all sides.  .

Enderby  The meeting of    the    Royal  Labor  Commission at Enderby Monday evening was not attended   by the bringing forward    of   any   important evidence which would    materially assist  in solving    the    problems    the Commissioners are enquiring into.   There  was,  in fact,  no    evidence offered on  the part of labor by the laboringmen  themselves.    -This would indicate one  of two things:    Either    the laboring  men in this district are satisfied with  their conditions, or are indifferent to  their welfare.       We prefer to believe  that the farm and    other laborers in  this locality are   satisfied with their  conditions and have little to offer by  way of recommendation to the Commission.     This district has never suffered from the evil, effects of a strike  or lockout.     The wage scale here has  always been    quite   fair and compatible with the conditions existing here  and we never   have    heard any complaint from   the   day laborer on the  score of poor pay.  One point was    brought out in the  evidence given by   Mr. E\ S. Stevens  which is deserving of the most earnest consideration.     Mr. Stevens said  in his testimony before the Commissioners,  that his lumber company is  employing a force    of 250 men,  one-  half of whom are orientals.'   He said  that he, as manager of the company,  found great difficulty in securing the  right kind of .white labor to take the  positions  occupied  by. these  oriental  laborers.     He was    prepared to pay  white men * 50c   more   for the day's  work than- he had to pay. Japs,'.Chi-,  neseand Hindos - for' the'same class  of labor,  but, he said,  he had found  it impossible to get whitemen to do  the -' work ��������������������������� and   remain   steadily at  work from week to -week.    .He' said  ha" found the whitemen too much, inclined to   drift   from place to .place,  and in the same positions as are now  occupied by orientals in his mill and  yards   they   were   not as dependable  from day to day.  In so stating the case, Mr. Stevens  did not attempt to explain why such  a condition should exist. He simply  told the bald facts as he had found  them. He said further that he preferred to employ whitemen if they  could be. had who would stick to the  work as faithfully as orientals, and  believed they would be worth to the  company 50c a day more than the  orientals if they would work steadily  in their places.  A most impressive reception was  I tendered the Duke of Connaught a few  evenings ago when he was the guest  of thc Canadian Club, in London.  His Royal Highness spoke most feelingly of his sojourn in Canada as  Governor-General  of the Dominion:  "I do not know a prouder position  for any    Englishman   to hold," said  His  Highness,    "than    that    of His  Majesty's representative as Governor-  General  of Canada.       When my late  brother asked me to accept this high  position and    the    offer was renewed  after his death by   our present Gracious Sovereign, I felt doubt whether  I could do justice to so high a position, but I    had   no    doubt    that I  should "find friends    in Canada today  as I did forty-three years ago.  "Gentlemen, since I have been in  Canada, the last year and a half, I  have felt more and more that I had  been able to gain the keen sympathy,  I venture to say, affection, of the  whole Canadian people. I am sure  you will believe me when I say that  I never spent a happier year and a  half."  His Royal    Highness then went on  to speak of his tour of the Dominion  "To    those    Englishmen  who  have  not been there," he declared,  "I say  the sooner they go the better.   Canada is moving by leaps and bounds."  His  words   scarcely  audible  owing  to the    repeated   cheering, the Duke  declared,   "I feel   half Canadian  myself."     He expressed his deep gratitude    for    the   sympathy shown  the  Duchess during   her    present illness.  "She, as well as myself," declared he  "has become much attached to Canada.      We have made a happy home  there    and    only    hope   that,  if her  health  permits,    we    may   go   back  again and spend another year in your  midst."

"A   decided    improvement  has taken place within the past fortnight," he adds,  "and a further betterment of conditions may "be looked  for.      The    phenomenal   real    estate  movement of the past three years in  western cities is . over,   at least for  some years to-come,   and henceforth  the development along industrial and  commercial   lines    will be more pronounced than ever.

It was further decided that all the challenge cups held  by the various associations should be  open for   competition   at the annual  Valley Show.

Great Success of "-the'��������������������������� "Advance .to  Settlers" Act in New Zealand  For many years it has been generally recognized that the farmer, in  all parts of the world, has worked  under a tremendous disadvantage and  handicap through his inability to  borrow money at reasonable rates.  In most of the countries of Continental Europe and throughout tbo  British possessions, ancl particularly  so in New Zealand and Australia  have plans been worked out whereby  this wrong, for so it has been called,  has been righted in a very marked  degree.  Many who have not taken the time  to study the question, have labored  under the impression that the demand which has been made upon the  British Columbia government for  legislation providing cheap money  for the farmer, is something quite un  able to a country such as British Columbia, may be absolutely disproved  by a citation of the farm mortgage  loans institutions of New Zealand  and Australia. We have there an example of a newly settled, sparsely  inhabited country, and the inhabitants composed of immigrants from  many different countries like our  own. The funds are raised by the  sale of bonds guaranteed by the state  which bonds are readily marketable  at such a price in the money centres  of Europe that the issuing state is  enabled to loan' the proceeds of the  bond- sale ab. 4f, or 5 per cent per  year and earn a handsome profit for  the state. The German or French  farmer is able to borrow, money  through their land banks as low as 3  per cent to 3_- per cent per year. .If  usual, savoring somewhat of what is , the farmers of this province might be  known as "class legislation." But'able to borrow money as low as 6  such is not the case.

In Europe the ��������������������������� problem has been  solved by the establishment of cooperative credit associations or .land-  period, and also the privilege of discharging the entire debt at any interest-paying period, they might well  be satisfied.   .  Twenty years ago the farmers of  New Zealand were positioned .much  the same as the farmers of B. C. now  are. They had to pay 7 and. 8 per  cent, and - these with bonuses, commissions and renewal charges which  run the interest charge as high as 10  or 12 per cent.

"On the other hand, thc town that  does not get ahead will be found to  be dominated by either a set of men  who are perfectly satisfied with their  surroundings or who are afraid somebody else will be benefitted in the  event something is started; consequently no effort of any kind is made  by this class for these reasons. If  some men, or set of men, endeavor  to start something they are met by  opposition and discouragement, and  it is uphill work all the way and  very often failure.

This means that  14,886 loans of the 32,783,  or 45 per  cent of the total loans, had been repaid and the money reloaned.

Come in and see them  and  get our prices  WM. WOODS, Enderby, B. C.  On Monday evening, April 28th, in  the City Hall, a brief sitting of the  Royal Labor Commission was held.  Only two witnesses were heard,  these being representative of the employing side. No one representing  the labor side appeared to give evidence, and after a session of one  hour and a half the Commission adjourned.  Manager Stevens of the Okanagan  Saw Mills, was first called to ,the  chair. Judging from the nature of  the questions asked by the Commissioners, an effort is being made to  induce them to bring in as one of  their recommendations the suggestion that a minimum wage scale of  ?4 for eight hours for all common  labor within the Province. - It was  apparent, too, that the Commissioners were considering seriously the  problem of domestic help, and the  replacing of oriental labor by white  labor.  In his evidence before the Commission, Mr. Stevens said his company  employed the year around some 250  men, half of whom, in the summer  season, were orientals. The rate of  wages paid white labor in the yards  and camps was ?2.50 and $3.50 per  day; to Hindos, Japs and Chinese,  $2.00 and $2.50. In the camps the  men were charged 25c a meal for  board, and each camp was provided  with a bathroom for the men, and  the. bunkhouses with springs, mattresses, pillows and bed linen the  same as the bnnkhouse in the town.  The charge in the company boarding  house, in * town was $5.00 per week.  He had heard no complaint from, the  men either in the camps or in town  on this score. A medical fee of $1  per month was charged the men. This  provided for medical attendance and  hospital care when required. The  men were paid by' check on the 10th  of the month," but-any workman could  draw his .wages any time he desired.  Mr. Stevens was- asked Jris reasons  for employing so' many orientals.  "We find difficulty in getting white'  men who -will stay .with the work,"  he replied.' /'The rate of pay-which  we are giving to white men and orientals indicates the value we put upon the quality of their labor. If we  could get good steady "white men who  would attend -to their work as the  orientals do we certainly would prefer to employ them."  ���������������������������  "What would you say to the inauguration of a minimum wage.scale  of $4 for eight hours for all common  labor," was asked.  "I hardly think it would be a good  policy. We would have to go out of  business. We could not continue and  pay it."  "What   is   your    yearly   cut,  .Mr.  Stevens?"  "From 20 to 25 millions."  "Do you find competition keen from  thf>-mins-nrross-tltft-1'inp?l!   "Yes, we do.  chinery manufactured here equally as  good."  "Why is it, then, that that our  millmen are disposed to bring their  machinery from across the line?"  "I do not know unless- it is that  they get better service."  "What are your shipments to the  Northwest?"  "We ship now about 50 cars per  month; last summer our shipments  were 125 and 128 carloads per month.  The freight rate is the same on a  single car as on any number. There  is an established freight rate to a  given point."  "How do you account- for the  continual moving about of the white  laborers? There must be some reason for this unsettled condition."  "Yes, there must be some reason  for it, but I do not know what it is  unless it be that the men, having no  homes, and no place to go when not  at work, flock to the hotels and  there bpend their money where liquor  is sold. I venture to say that fully  two-thirds of the money paid out by  us to our camp men finds its way to  the hotels."  "Do your men ever complain about  the condition of your camps?"  "We never have heard any complaint."  Mr. Stevens stated that his company always insured the workmen  against loss.by injury.  "Suppose the Government would  take charge of this insurance, Ohow  would it work?"  "I can see no' objection to it."

"Are not white men employed exclusively in the American mills?"  "In the northwestern states, I believe thcy are; in the coast mills they  employ the orientals as we do."  "How do these mills employ white  men and pay the duty on their lumber coming into Canada and yet enter into competition with you in the  Northwest?"  "Because they can produce their  lumber cheaper than we can."  "Is the equipment of our mills not  as good as the equipment of the  American mills?"  "Yes, I believe it is. But they can  manufacture much cheaper than we.  The cost of logging there is from $2  to ������������������2.50 per thousand less than ours.  The country is more level, and they  do not have to meet the conditions  which we find in a mountainous country such as this."  "Isn't it the case that a great deal  of the equipment of our mills* is pur-,  chased on the other side?"  "Yes, I believe it is."  "What is the duty on sawmill machinery?"  "Twenty-seven and a half per cent  is placed on light machinery."  "Is there no machinery manufactured in Canada as good as the machinery from the other side?"  "Yes, I    think   there   is some ma-  Mayor Ruttan was called to the  chair by the chairman of the Commission, who, when doing so, graciously thanked the Mayor ,for the  accommodation provided for the. sitting of the Commission. ,  MrT Ruttan's evidence' dealt largely  with conditions in his lumber mill at  Fort Fraser.' He * employed��������������������������� only a  small- force "of men���������������������������40-'.in 'all���������������������������in 'the  mill, yard and camp." All were white  men. The wage scale, was $3 a-day  and board, or $5 a day without board  and. the men were paid on the -15th of  the month, sometimes, by check and  sometimes in' cash. Mr. Ruttan was  asked what he .thought of the suggestion to make ?4',a day for 8 "hours.-  the ruling scale.Jor all laborers, and  he replied that "he did not believe it  was practicable. Sc>me men, he had  found, would do a day's work in  eight hours while he was certain  there were others who would not  earn $4 in 12 hours. He also had  found it difficult to hold men in the  camps for more than two pay days.  They would then strike for the town  or some other place to spend it. He  had thought sometimes that it would  be better if there were no bars for  men to go to, but he had more recently become convinced that this  .would not._. overcome���������������������������the��������������������������� pvil. ._At.

I  t  Fort Fraser he was 150 miles from a  trading post, and yet he had found  the evil there. Men would get it in  by the case, and would stay by the  case until it was gone.  "Where do these men get this  liquor?" was asked by one of tbe  Commissioners.  "It is brought in by express from  one" "of tlie "trading" posts���������������������������the'Hudson  Bay, or some other."  "The Hudson Bay is still making  dividends of whiskey !" exclaimed  one of the Commissioners, with no  little meaning in his voice.  Mr. Ruttan was then asked in relation to local conditions. The rate  of wages paid here for common labor  was $3 per day. He was not in a  position to give any information relating to the question of domestic  help nor did he believe there was any  shortage in agricultural laborers.  In school matters, the city employed five teachers at salaries ranging from $70 to $100 per month.  Houses of the moderate type rented  at probably $12 per month, and thc  pay of the city constable touched  the beam at $75.  "Do you think a man could save  any money on a salary of $75 per  month?" asked Commissioner Stoney.  Mr. Ruttan thought he could, but  this, of course, would depend upon  the man.  There being no one present who de-  Sired to give evidence before the  Commission, adjournment was taken.
