Council last  Tuesday evening - by Acting-Mayor  Worthington, His Worship is laboring  under a misapprehension, in "connection with the .franchise given by .the  City of Enderby to the.Okanagan  Telephone Company. Mr. Worthington was a member of the Oity Council when the franchise was voted^by  the ratepayers, but he has_ evidently  forgotten the facts leading up to the  granting of the franchise by the city.  Mr. ^Worthington said that -there" had  been considerable discussion heard on  the question- of , franchise,. whereas  it was not a franchise" at all; simply  a .friendly .agreement which the city  entered into with the Okanagan Telephone Company." --', -    ..'"-  .'If, Mr. -Worthington will. look5 up  the minutes of' the. City Council;beL  tween- the dates of July- 4th-and- Sept  ;28tbf, 1908,: he'will. find.that his -mem:  _or'y is playing J him _ falsely./ , Th'_  fear-'was also' repeatedly ^expressed by  the Acting" Mayor1; as -to the legality  of "the agreement, and it" almost made  one .shiver _:to -Vthink "ot- the-direful  things that, might happen if "the";by:  law passed bythe people .of Enderby  were put to attest.. by the. Telephone  Company.    -'''���������������������������*   1    ' '"  On. July 4th,: 1908,'thVCity Council  received a letter from' Messrs. Billings .&. Cochrane,":Vernon, as "attorneys for the" telephone company, making application on behalf of the company for'the right' to "do business in  the.City of "Enderby.- "At;the same  time,- it.was stated" tb.at-.the Okanagan Telephone Company , was incorporated under a private act," and "that  it was not necessary * for 'the matter  to _be submitted   to   a.. vote of the  ratepayers. **  o  However,' the City Council adhered  to Sec. 64 of   the   Municipal Clauses  "Act, which says that the City Council has no power to enter into any  agreement or grant any franchise to  any company without the consent of  the people.  A deal of correspondence was exchanged on the subject, and the City  held the telephone company up in its  construction -work*__until_ it__w.as._pre-  pared to sign conditions of agreement suitable to the City. It was  not until Sept. 28th that the conditions agreed upon and duly signed by  the City and the telephone company,  were passed upon by the ratepayers.  On Sept. 28, 1908, by-law No. 49  was voted upon and passed by a vote  of 30 -to 0, which was a by-law to  authorize the Okanagan Telephone  Company to construct and operate a  telephone system in the City of Enderby. Included in this by-law was  the agreement between the City and  the telephone company, signed by  both parties thereto on the 12th of  September. Outside of "a few lines  of introduction, the agreement is the  by-law itself, which, after receiving  the assent of the ratepayers, became  as binding as any law on the statute  books.  " To endeavor at this time to make  it appear that the telephone company  has the right to walk over the terms  of the franchise agreement because it  is incorporated under a blanket charter covering the district of Yale, is  quite absurd.      The   private charter  sanctioned by.the municipality. In  fact, the charter says,, after reciting  the rights "and privileges given the  company, that "In municipalities the  breaking up and opening of streets  for the erection of poles or for carrying wires underground, shall be subject to the approval of the municipal  council of such municipality."  The conditions , embraced in the  franchise agreement between the City  and ��������������������������� the - telephone ��������������������������� company," "cover  points that are- not touched upon in  the company's blanket charter, points  which could-,only be covered by-the  municipality^' directly concerned.-^ The  matters of hours of-service and that  of, monthly rental charge to phone  users- are included in" the agreement  and must, of necessity, be complied  with" as faithfully .. as any other part  of the agreements ,- - - . '  ' That the. City Council is.fully-alive  to.-the fact tthat the telephone" company is "overriding, the .terms of, the  agreement is apparent from the official . minutes..of ; the' Council proceed-  in"gs."-On July,'28th'? ia letter, undated  ���������������������������we are - quoting"-", now from.' the ^official--minutes-'j>f _the" City- Council)���������������������������  ,'was ,"received'" from, ���������������������������the .Okanagan.  - elephone -- Co'mpahyit^stating; that  .fter .Aug. -:ist,'-1913, ;'the" - rental  harged by, them for the telephone in  the City.Hall would-be'$4 per "month."

The opening play is "The  Sweetest Girl in Dixie," and in it we  have a play of an American type,  and one that will doubtless be of  great interest to the audiences of  the West.

"Tt might bc argued by a captious  purist, that the agricultural grant  was devised to benefit thc government, and that it is, therefore, as  shrewdly partisan as though thc  manner of its distribution were  nakedly political.

At  the same time she started a race in  naval    armaments    greater than the  world had    ever   known before.     In  that year Britain was the only power  constructing this new type of fighting  ship, but today the large nations are  building in    half-dozens    and dozens,  and even the comparatively poor and  feeble little   states   have caught the  infectious  disease,    and  are ordering  their    "Dreadnoughts.'"       From   the  ������������������1,750,000 that   Britain,    as the only  power building, was spending in 1905,  at this year's   end   there will be approximately 150 ships of the big-gun  type, built or bu lding~, and the various naval powers'  of the world will  have spent���������������������������during a period of eight  years���������������������������in -this   class   of vessel alone,  something like.������������������370,000,000.   Equally  as noteworthy   as    the    increase   in  numbers'is    the    advance in fighting  power and battle value.     Today our  latest   ships   in   commission" have a  broadside fire   over double that possessed    by   the   "Dreadnought," and  several vessels at present under construction are 600 feet long, compared  with the 490 feet of the original ship  of this type.���������������������������London Sphere.

Sold in Enderby by FULTON HARDWARE CO., Ltd  Many people believe that because of  the good crop Canada has been saved  from all financial trouble. They are  wrong. The enormous crop postponed some of the trouble, it did not  save Canada. A1 country where the  cost of living has gone up more than  in any other country in thc world  cannot be saved by good crops. It  can only be saved by its people discovering that they are indolent and  extravagant.       The     discovery   will  come to many during January and  February of 1914, when employment  will be scarcer than usual and when  many ueople will be forced to draw  on their reserves. Skyscrapers, watered stock and high prices for labor  'and food are not evidences of prosperity only; they show prosperity  combined with extravagance.���������������������������Canadian Courier.  P.

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, October 30, 1913  POLES  AND  CROSS-TIES  In 1912 there were 608,550 poles  purchased by the Canadian railways,  and telegraph, telephone and light  and power companies, according to \  recent bulletin of the Forestry Branch  Ottawa. This represents an outlay  of $1,113,524, making the average cost  per pole of $1.83. The total number  of poles purchased and thc averajje  price per pole increased somewhat  from corresponding figures for 1911.  Cedar made   up   86 per cent of the  total number of poles cut, the western cedar being increasingly used for  this purpose. Balsam, fir, tamarack  and spruce made up the balance of  the cut, the greater part of the poles  being between 20 and 25 feet in length  In 1912, there were purchased 21,-  308,571 ties, representing a value of  ?9,373,869. This represents the large  increase of 48.1 per cent over the  number of ties purchased in 1911, due  probably to the extension of railway  construction.  Jack pine   ties    made   up 36.5 per  ENDERBY OPERA  HOUSE  Back again !  For Two Nights  Commencing  Wed. Nov. 5th  cent of the total with an average  value of 44c Cedar was second on  the list with an average cost at  point of purchase of 45c, lollowed by  Douglas fir, averaging 30c per tie. In  all twenty-one different species of  wood were used.  Ties treated with preservatives  made up 8.5 per cent of the number  used. These were chiefly hardwoods,  it being found more economical to  treat the heavier, stronger woods  than those which are liable to fail  from mechanical wear before they  have time to decay. Some of the  eastern railways nre now using hardwood ties ecxlusively.  Make Your Dollars Count  Our Goods are Marked at CASH PRICES.
