Rosoman, have decided that the Police Court and Small Debts Court  business has become such a heavy  rharge on the time of Mr. Rosoman  as to interfere with the proper carrying on of the city office, and it is  their wish that he resign one of the  said appointments, but it is their  unanimous wish that he retain the  appointment of City Clerk, at a salary of $100 per month."

The plan having been carefully examined by the Council; was, with  their concurrence, duly approved by  the Mayor.  A petition, signed by R. E. T. Forster et al.  was laid before the Council. ���������������������������   The petitioners stated that Mr.  Greyell,    dairyman, -intended   to apply, for a. permit for the erection of a  cow stable, 40 feet long, on his property; that the 'said,property is situated in a    residential    neighborhood,  and that the erection and"use'of the  proposed   building    will   - become' a  nuisance and depreciate the value of  that portion of the-city for residential purposes;    and. asking that when  application- was." made for a-permit  granting:of same,; might be delayed,  also that a by-law  "might.be passed,  authorizing"  the"; refusal    of permits  where _in the \iriterest  .'of the city, it  appears i to : the ' "Council' that  such  permits ."should/be; refused. \ .Petition  filed.

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, August 28, 1913  preciation of Enderby's big step forward, these critics attempt to decry  the effort and ridicule the policy  of centralization adopted by thc  Government. They prefer to cling  to thc little one-room school idea of  long ago. Their attitude is expressed by a correspondent in another column. It is surprising that  they should have acquired such a  selfish, narrow conception of thc  ibig policy of'tlie Government and the  ,city of Enderby.  i  i No doubt, when they understand  the purpose of the Government and  school board, and set .aside their  false conception long enough to  study the purpose of it all, they will  amend their ideas and mend their  ways.  A THREE MILE LIMIT  Editor Enderby Press:   Dear Sir:  In your last week's paper on the  above subject you would almost like  to make people believe that the trustees of the Enderby city school were  working hard for th'e special benefit  of the children who are living a distance from Enderby, when we all  know that is not their object.  When you have so much to say  about the    centralization  of schools,  ��������������������������� why is it that the cities where children can be taken to and from  school in electric cars, don't centralize more? Vancouver has about 25  schools, Victoria. about 15. And  what about the results of centraliza-  ��������������������������� tion of schools -in Manitoba?  !    No.     Why not state the fact, that  Jthe people    of   Enderby are having a   i school  built    too   large for their rc-  Advertising*  Rates:   Transient. 50c an inch  lirsl j Ollirements,   and   which   is  going  to  be  insertion.

The times to  feed rriay~be~set" to "suit" thc'ownerT  Where a dry-mash is fed, it is not  necessary to feed more than twice  daily, morning and afternoon. It is  important, however, that the feeding  periods should be punctual and regular. Especially is this so during the  winter months, when the birds naturally seek the roosts earlier in the  afternoons.  "Where it is not intended to raise  chicks, a wet mash, consisting of  table scraps, dried off with ground  cereals,, may be profitably led. Care  should be exercised in feeding table  scraps, however. Slilted meats.of  all kinds, pickles, mustard, or pepper  are feeds of a doubtful character.  Trouble, of a diarrhocal and ovarian  nature arise very frequently. Fat  meats, potatpes or peelings, should  be given sparingly. Peelings, if fed,  should be cooked, and mixed with  bran or shorts. A wet mash may  be composed of table scraps (if large  they should be run through meat-'  mincer), and a sufficient quantity of  bran, ground oats or shorts, so that  the mixture may not be. too sticky.

BECAUSE if you prefer a home-site  on the hills, in groves of birch and  alder, cedar and pine, overlooking  the river and valleys, you will find it  here most ideally located.

BECAUSE you will find here all the  advantages to be found any place  else in the Valley, and none of the  disadvantages.  BECAUSE there is work to be had  by anyone looking for it, in the mills,  in the lumber camps, _on the farm,  in the lumber yards, in the brick  yards, in the  orchards.  BECAUSE fruits, hay, vegetables  . and grain grow to perfection here  without irrigation.

I to perfect a measure.   He claims  , that the farmers of the United  , States are badly handicapped by  jthe difficulties they meet in raising money for their legitimate  [ purposes.     The   banking    laws  ! provide for the requirements of  | the merchant, the manufacturer  j or the stockbroker.  These people  | mav not always be able to get as  {much money as they want,   but  ��������������������������� the farmer never can, unless   he  i pays.exorbitant interest or ties  himseif up with mortgages. And  yet one would think that if there  is any business which ought to  have   its    financial   way   made  smooth, it is this fundamental occupation.     We quote from  the  President's statement:  "One of the chief and most serious of these disadvantages has  been that the farmer has not  been able to secure the extended  bank accomodations he every  year stands in need of without  paying the most burdensome  rates of interest and ���������������������������saddling  himself with-mortgages aiid ob-"  ligations of every.kind, which he  fairly staggered under, if he  .could carry them,at all. In other  countries systems of rural credit  have been put into operation  which not only have relieved the  farmer, but have put his enterprises upon a footing of easy accomplishment. Our farmers  must have similar means afforded  them. They must be furnished  these facilities before their enterprises languish, not afterward.  And they will be." - j10-20 (Lv)  This is a subject which is bound, j10-51, -- -  sooner or later, to command " at-;11M ~. ~  j 11.19  !11.45  !11.53  ;12.03  : 3 2.30  12.50 (Ar)  $16,076,158,  and totalled $139,  395,699.  Now these figures do not show  as large increases as the year of  1911-12 did over the year of 1910-  li. But there are reasons.  Working expenses were necessarily considerably higher during  the year just ended than for the  preceding twelve months. An  increase in this connection of  thirteen and a quarter millions  had to be overcome before any  increase in net was made possible.  Further, the check in trade and  commerce has affected the railways, just as it has affected other  institutions. To the sane and  sensible, the figures contained in  this report at once make safe the  grouud of thc optimistic.  Both the other transcontinental s in this country have the same  excellent showing. Indeed they  have come out of the. fire much  better than was expected. The  money tightness is bound to affect both passenger and freight  traffic to some extent,0 but the  facts and figures contained in the  reports of the C. N. R., theC. P.  R. and the G. T.

Our complete stock of shirts, underwear, sox, suspenders, ties and  gloves at. 20 per cent off this week.  Dill Bros.  gunnery is probably more highly  developed at home, but the fleet  must be saved domesticity or  moral decline.  "Under thc old regime fifty-  three per cent of the ships only  were retained at home, while  forty-seven per cent were constantly cruising abroad. Today  there isonecruiserinthe -Mediterranean, another in the East  Indies, and three are stationed  on the Chinese Coast. Elsewhere  the British navy is unrepresented,  excepting for cruisers,- mostly of  the smaller classes."  He quotes Mi*. Borden's summing-up of 1G0 ships in foreign  ancl colonial stations in 3902 as  against 76 today, and concludes  that the Admiralty cannot again  adopt the policy of dispersion of  the ships, as the men are not  available, and the expense is pre -  hi hi tive. But more small cruisers, he says, are needed on the  coast of British Columbia, and  a larger squadron at the Cape.  Above all, there should be an  Imperial Squadron, provided  jointly by the Mother Country  and the dominions for cruising in  distant waters."  SOME RE-ASSURING FACTS.

A  Board of Education of Manitoba, on the  successful operation of the consolidated  schools system in that province is reproduced to give a cLarer conception  of the a!ms and objects of the local  school board in conjunction with tlie  Provincial Board of Education:  "Everything   relative    to  the  farm  and farming has improved and hence  it is highly necessary that the farmers"' children should receive an education,  and under conditions that will  ���������������������������fit them to   properly    carry on their  jwork of the   future.   The proper, education of the boys    and girls of the  rural communities   cannot be neglected without   bringing    ruin on these  commodities.       If   these advantages  are    not    provided,   they   will   drift  away   into    other * callings.     On the  .other hand,    if    schools of the right  ��������������������������� kind are provided   and equipped and  suitable   facilities   furnished   so that  {all "may avail themselves of the educational opportunities,  these children  will remain ,at home on the farms to '  receive their   "general   education  and  afterwards when   they'come to take  charge of affairs will prove towers of  strength to the rural communities on  account of their "education.-  "What the   Illinois'   School Report  says of conditions   in   that state, is  question, and are giving' no inconsiderable attention to it and heavy  demands are constantly being made  on the Department of Education tor  information'' regarding <the various  phases of thc system, so much so, in  fact, that one of thc Inspectors of  i Schools, thoroughly conversant with  .the slibject, has been appointed "Special Agent on  Consolidation..  The   two    first     consolidated   districts formed in Manitoba were Holland and Virden,  in , 1906, and these  have given-   entire    satisfaction  ever  since formation.       The   people   were  slow to move in the matter-, at first,  but   the    two  .districts    referred to  were   frequently , visited    by trustees  and delegates from various parts who  jwere anxiousto    learn at first hand  how the scheme was working out in  Manitoba.     Not until 1909 were any  other    districts   consolidated, but in  jthat year Eagleton, Dauphin, Melita,  ��������������������������� and   Brigdenley-   were    formed.  " In  1910,  St. Patrick,    Elphinstone, Dar-  lingford,  Starbuck, - Sperling,   Sarah-  ville (Miniota),' St._  Andrew,  Brick-  burn,    (Gilbert   Plains),  and Tpulon  consolidations were consummated.

"The system was first introduced  into Canada by Prof. Robertson, acting for Sir Wm. Macdonald, of Montreal, who offered to pay towards  consolidation for three years, all expenses that would accrue over the  old system, on condition that he bc  given full control over th������������������ courses of  study. After come consideration on  the matter, the offer was accepted,  ancl a school established at Middle-  ton, N.S., in 1903, and at Kingston,  N. B., in 1904. A Macdonald school  was founded later at Guelph, Ont.,  in 1904, and one at Hillsborough, in  P. E. I., in 1905. Other consolidated schools have since been formed  in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.  "Consolidation 'first received attention in Manitoba in 1903, and when  first broached was met with a storm  of ridicule, many people claiming  that it was preposterous in a country of cold winters, bad roads, and  sparse settlement; but during the  short space of eight years, public  opinion has greatly moderated, in  view of the successful working of the  large number of consolidated schools  now in the province, and now all sec-  schools   of  that .-are not consolidated.'.

The special, tax. in such^districts, runs from  $10 on a quarter" section "of"land to  $25,. but it is necessary that one be  acquainted with all the facts .in connection with the operation of a district before'he is able to say whether  or not the tax is high.  "The enrollment of l the consolidated schools has been found to in-  clude=practically���������������������������allf*the=school=chil-=  dren in the district, but the increase  in the average attendance-is the remarkable and striking feature. While  the average attendance of country  schools, generally, runs from 35 to  50 per cent, of the enrollment, that  of the consolidated schools is from  57 to 90 per cent.  The B. C.

Parents of children will appreciate greatly the value  of having their . children at home  every night instead of in some nearby or far-off town, removed from Lhe  watchful eye of the parents.  "There is again, the great advantage of being conveyed comfortably to  and from school in all kinds of  weather and over roads in all conditions.  "The large schools also tend to  broaden the character and prevent  narrowness or selfishness, and with  large numbers there 'is a healthy,  active, inspiring school spirit with  sufficient pupils to engage in all  kinds of sports and thus build up an  honest, rugged and manly character.  To the larger schools, it has been  found that the larger boys and girls  manifest no reluctance to attend,  which is in strong contrast to the  conditions existing where there are  small, one-room rural schools.

Teece, chairman of the waterworks committee to have something  clone; also to place additional water  hydrants where needed.  The Clerk asked for instructions as  to what disposition to make of the  Okanagan Telephone Co. account,  which was not in accordance with  the charter agreement between the  Company and the city. It was decided to make payment in accordance  with the terms of the agreement.  Mr. Fulton asked the Council what  disposition had been made or was to  be made with regard to the accounts  owed by the Board of Trade. He  said these accounts, had been-run in  anticipation of the Council carrying  out the wish of the majority of. the  property owners    who petitioned the  This had not been done. Personally  he had been out of pocket the sum  of ?200 which he had advanced last  year to make possible the Enderby  exhibit at the last Okanagan Apple  Show, with the understanding that  the Board of Trade would make good  Mayor Ruttan said the Council had  no money for the purpose. He did  not think the Board of Trade acted  wisely last year, and did not feel it  was up to the city to find the way  out of the difficulty.  Mr. J. Warwick was appointed to  the position of poundkeeper.  A CORRECTION  -  In advertising property on Belvidere street for sale I gave the net  price of ?3,600, forgetting to add  agents' commission. This comes to  $150, making the correct price $3,750.  The property is honest.y worth this  amount today; and, being close in,  will become exceedingly" valuable as  the town develops���������������������������worth, perhaps,  many times the amount it can now  be bought for. It will certainly  make a lot of money for somebody.  Why not for you? Better come and  see me about it today.
