', handle its own affairs, and this is  something that no court can do.  I 3f the telephone company refuses to  ! comply with the conditions, of its  j agreement with tlie city, then it is  iup to the City to put thc company  | out of business in Enderby. This  lean bc dono in various ways. And if  jthe telephone company is so anxious  !to have tho matter settled by thc  [courts it could then have an oppor-  ! Unity to do so, at no cost to thc  ' city.  The policy adopted by thc telephone  ���������������������������company 'is    certain   not  to increase  jthe number of   phone users.    On thc  ! contrary,  the phones   have decreased  !in  number and   will   continue to become fewer.       Therefore,    the    phone  will  become  ot    increasingly  less use  to the few-using the service.     If the  company had   adopted a  policy that  was calculated to make the telephone  of greater value to its subscribers in  Enderby  and    district,    there   would  then be some   reason in its apparent  belief that it can   rule with an iron  hand, contrary to its agreement with  the city.  A local telephone system that  would give every home in Enderby  phone connection could be established  for very little moncy, and, under the  law passed by the last legislature,  the Okanagan Telephone Company  could not refuse to give the local  company long distance connection ou  the payment of the long distance fee.  It does not seem to bc a seriouF  problem to solve if the City and the  telephone subscribers will stand together.

Terry, chief  provincial poultry inspector, an  official of the Summerland Poultry Association makes the claim  that orchardists will soon have to  realize that necessary to their  continued success is a movement  along the line of mixed farming,  having particularly as its aim the  keeping of stock on all fruit ranches.  '/As you are perhaps aware,  we'have been passing through a  very critical period in our history  here and our people are awakening to realize that there must be  something in addition to fruit.  While there may be years that  they make good money out of  fruit in o.ther years they get next  to nothing.

Minister of Agriculture; a distribution of  superior sorts of grain and potatoes  will be made the coming winter and  spring to Canadian farmers. The  samples for general distribution will  consist of-spring wheat (5 lbs) white  oats ('1 lbs-), barley (5 lbs) and field  peas (5 lbs.) These will be sent out  from Ottawa. A distribution of potatoes (in 3 lb. samples) will be carried on from several of thc experi.  mental farms, the Central Farm at  Ottawa supplying only the provinces  of Ontario and Quebec. All samples  will be sent free, by mail.  Applicants must give particulars in  regard to the soil on their farms,  and some account of the^r experience  with such kinds of grain (or potatoes) as they have grown, so that a  promising sort for their particular  conditions may be selected.  Each   application  must be  separate  and must be signed by the applicant.  Only one sample of grain and one of  potatoes can be sent to each farm.  Applications on any kind of printed  form cannot be accepted. If two or  more samples are asked for in the  same letter only one will be sent.  As the supply _oi seed is limited,  farmers are advised to apply early;  but the applications will not necessarily be filled in the exact order in  which they are received. Preference  will always be given to thc most  thoughtful and explicit requests. Applications received after the end of  January will probably be too late.  All applications for grain (and applications from thc provinces of Ontario - and Quebec for potatoes)  should be addressed to the Dominion  Cerealist, Central Experimental Farm  Ottawa. Such applications require  no postage.' If otherwise addressed  delay and disappointment may occur.  Applications for potatoes, from  farmers in any other province should  be addressed (postage prepaid) to the  superintendent of the nearest Branch  Experimental Farm in that province.  J. H.

H. Hayward, Chairman 01; that one might almost think any of  the Provincial Commission on Agri  culture, returned last week [romi a  trip to the Old Country in quest of  information in connection with the  problems confronting the agriculturists of British Columbia. Wherever  Mr. Hayward went, he was accorded  not only every courtesy as the representative of British Columbia, but  also every facility for securing necessary information. From his remarks  in the course of a conversation 'with  the Victoria Colonist, it was gathered that his investigation on the  continent and Ireland particularly  impressed him, the wonderful development observed in the last named  country appealing to J him very  strongly.  "To the visitor in European countries," said, Mr. Hayward, "studying  the conditions, of agriculture, the  first thing that impresses itself on  the mind is the wonderful pitch to  which co-operation has been successfully carried. They apply it, not  only to producing, but to selling and  handling; and in most instances, to  hanking. Wherever I went I was  faced with new. features in ..this wonderful development, and I think in  Denmark I found the apotheosis.  Holland has advanced wonderfully.  Germany is, perhaps, the-father of  co-operation, but it has been adopted  and applied   so 'splendidly elsewhere  OF CANADA  No Fear of Losing Your  Money When Travelling  ",if , you, carry' it-in .the form, of-;  -r   Travellers* Cheques  issued by the .

CHRISTIE, Manaoer  i  | the countries mentioned had fathered  I the    system.       France,    too, is in a  very excellent way agriculturally.  "But the great revelation to me in  this respect was Ireland. Ireland,  in an agricultural sense, has progressed, perhaps, more rapidly than  any other country since it was taken  in hand by Sir Horace Plunkett and  his associates. He is, of course, following > out the ideas in vogue in  Denmark and elsewhere, but it is being done so well and the results are  being achieved so rapidly, that it is  difficult to believe that only a few  years ago Ireland was practically  without an agricultural industry at  all. Thcy have their co-operative  creameries and egg stations, and  what not nowadays, and every -day  their production -and export trade are  on the increase. It is a really marvellous thing, what scientific ideas can.  do for a country.  "In none "of the codntries I visited  could I say that the conditions were  at all similar to those of British Columbia, but at' .the same time, by  eliminating here and adding there, it  may be, possible for us,tto devise  some scheme of a kindred nature to  those that are doing! so well, and apply it to the great agricultural areas  of British Columbia.     '.  "In fact," I will go so Jar "as to  state that, personally, I am satisfied  hat the solution of the agricultural  problem is to be found in the adoption of some- system of small holdings and the extension of the co-operative idea. In this Province already we have evidence of what can  be sccorj^lished it- we cro in for the  business properly and earnestlyf  . "Just what size .the holdings in  British ' Columbia- ought, to be, I  would hot at the' moment venture to  suggest, but--surely that is - a; point  that might,easily be" settled.". The"  whole idea of the' system" is, of course  tending towards intensive-cultivation.  In the European countries "the agricultural communities have an" intense  desire: to cut .down- the size .of-the  holdings. ->Jn Denmark and Holland  this movementi is most marked, because it has been satisfactorily demonstrated-in these countries that the  small holder is, really the backbone "of  the country. By. the .operation of  these - intensive methods,' and each  man'doing . his best in the.way of  production, the output hasi-tremendously increased.     ' -  ,-  "So rigid are the officials in this  regard that it is impossible for one  man to operate more than one holding of five or ten acres, as the law  allows. If he wants more work he  can have another farm, but he cannot increase the size of the one he  has.  "I can say, from "ray experience,  that wherever there is agricultural  wealth in the European countries, the  system of sny&ll holdings 'is in operation. The system saved Holland  from bankruptcy. Thirty years ago  the state was in a perilous position,  and today 80 per cent of its exports  are 'agricultural products, and it is  all traceable to the adoption of the  small holdings system.  "In England I cannot say that  things are so far advanced, but then  the question oi land settlement has  doubtless interfered with the work  there. But in Ireland, as I said before, we have one of the best ex-,  amples in the world today of what  can be done for a country by conducting a proper system of agriculture.  There have - been   criticisms   against  0  the making of such a study as I have  made, on the ground that it could  not possibly prove anything in relation to British Columbia, but I don't  think any fair-minded individual, will,  for a moment, say that there is any-  reason why the .lessons so learned  should not, prove advantageous to  this country.  .'Tor myself,. 1^ must say,"that I  have seen and learned far more than  I ever dreamed of, and, while I will  not. pretend that any systern can be  applied to British Columbia, holus-  bolus, at the same time I beg to  state that there are many points upon which the future* prosperity of  agriculture in' the Province .will turn,  that will In the - future be traceable  to the influence of ithese older countries." . .      ,  i LOANS TO FARMERS GOOD   ,  In.the past-18-.years__the_New Zealand government has loaned, larmers  $65,000,000.

Lahdon, on the raneh  Enderby  m '4  fl  m  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, December 4, 1913  THE INDIAN ACT  For several years the Indians on  the Enderby reserve have not made  any effort to cultivate their land nor  to get a living off the reserve. Time  was, somo twenty years ago, when  the indians, what are now thc old  men on the reserve, tilled the soil  and harvested quite respectable crops.  But the younger element amongst the  males, and the interlopers from other  ceed 150; cattle not more than 25,  and pigs, perhaps 20 all told. The  produce from,these reserves is largely  native hay, grown on the meadows.  These Indians make their living oil  the timber cut on the reserve lands.  It is estimated by some who ought  to know, that the annual revenue de-  i rived from cord wood, poles, ties,  etc., cut on the reserve, will reach  $4,000 a year, or a total in five years  of nearly $20,000.  This trading    with    the Indians by  reserves    who    have   taken    up their  residence on the reserve here, do notjwhite men in~the distri_t, while quite  general, is    contrary    to   the Indian  care ior work of this nature, and,  under conditions which have existed  in recent past years, they have not  had to till the soil to make a good  living. The total' population on the  Enderby and Salmon River reserves,  embracing in all nearly 10,000 acres,  is given by the Indian Agent at 160.  Forty of these are men, forty women  and the balance children. The total  area of cultivated ' land on these reserves is very small.

The Indian Act is very strict  in these matters, though every person within a radius of ten miles of  Enderby has had reason to know  that the Act is not , enforced in this  regard.     The Act reads:  "12S. Every Indian oi the band  who, without the license in writing  of the Superintendent General, or  some officer or person deputed by  him for that purpose, cuts, carries  away or removes from any portion  of the reserve of his band, for sale  and not for the immediate use of  himself and his lamily any trees,  timber, cordwood or part of any  tree,   saplings,   shrubs,   underwood or  BUSINESS   NEWS  AND   COMMENT  Prepare to die by living.
