K. of P. Hall never looked better  than on the "occasion of the open  lodge service last Friday evening,  when there gathered in the hall a  large number of friends of the order  to learn more of its objects and to  see some of the indoor work. The  officers of the lodge were nt their  stations robed, and tho lessons of the  three ranks wore given from the stations, and the odes of the order sung.  This was interspersed by short, interesting addresses by Rev. Mr. Dow,  Rev. Mr. Brown and Rev, Mr, Reed,  all of whom entered heartily into the  spirit of the occasion. Following  these exercises, light refreshments  were served, and the balance of the  evening spent In a social way.  OBJECT TO STATE AID  A. Tomkinson has opened a general  store at Grindrod.  One handkerchief given away with  every ?1,00 purchase at Speers' on  Saturday. ���������������������������   -  The man that never had a chance  doesn't deserve any.  If you want a suit or overcoat at  25 per cent off regular price, get it  at the Poison Mercantile Company.  Protesting against any suggestion  of state aid towards the church in  the lorm of the exemption of church  property from taxation, a delegation  -representing^the^Bapiist^JChurchj^jof^  British Columbia waited on tbe Municipal Committee in' the Legislature  one day the past week. - They presented their case in writing and also  argued their proposals before the  committee. They stated that the  suggestion made by some supporters  of church exemption that, as the cities of Victoria and Vancouver had recently; exempted all improvements,  and, therefore,1 had caused some  additional taxation upon church  land/and, as church buildings were  exempt by statute, that some relief  should be granted to churches, was  an untenable one.  Mr. Wm, Manson, chairman of the  committee, informed the delegates  thnt other deputations had agreed to  the proposal that municipalities  should be given power to submit the  question of the exempt on of church  properties to the people at any time  if a three-fifth vote was recorded in  favor of that step.  In contradiction of this proposal,  the delegates argued that it was a  matter of principle, and that it  should be disposed of one way or another. They took the ground that  to make the question a constantly  recurring issue at the polls would  create an acrimony every time the  referendum was proposed, which  could not fail to be disastrous to the  moral welfare of the community.  Call and   see   new   line of novelty  pins, at Speers.  The report emphasizes the general  need on the part of farmers for the  establishment of some system- of longT  term loans' at low interest, and  points out that in many old countries where 'the 'land has been under  cultivation for. centuries it has been  found, necessary to provide some special means of extending such credit.  The commissioners point out that  fche^employment^oLsome intermediate  agency, such as a loan company,  would increase the cost to the borrower, without increasing the security against losses, and therefore reco-  mends the establishment of a non-  political commission similar to those  operating in New Zealand an<l Australia.  11  The recommendations . provide, for  the creation of a board"to"be known  J as the Agricultural Credit Commission, consisting of a superintendent  and four directors; two members and  the superintendent to be practical  farmers, and, to be appointed by the  Lieutcnant-Governor-in-Council for  life; the other- two members to be the  deputy ministers of agriculture and  finance. Under the scheme proposed  the legislative assembly shall make  provision for the issue of stock bearing interest at not over 4 percent,'  and having a currency up to '��������������������������� ��������������������������� 36 4 ���������������������������  years. .'���������������������������  The credit commission under the  plan proposed shall be empowered-to  lend to i farmers in respect of permanent improvements made on their land  and for other productive purposes,  and such loans shall be repayable by  emortization over such periods as thc  commission may decide, but in.no  case exceeding thirty-six and a half  years. In addition to the amount  payable as emortization, the borrower would pay one per cent over  and above the cost of the money to !  tbe Government.

A.teaching of some  simple s form of farm bookkeeping  .should also; be included in the curr-lc-;  ulum. The report points out that  the whole system of agricultural education, should be extended and gives  some attention to the courses of  study for the new University of British Columbia.  The commissioners suggest that a  separate portfolio of agriculture  should be . established, so that the  minister could devote his entire time  to the work. In connection with tbis  proposal the report calls attention  to the establishment in other coun.  tries of consultative councils whose  functions are to advise the minister  and keep him in touch with the agr -  cultural classes, and therefore sug- ,  gests that an advisory board of agriculture, consisting of nine members  should be created.  With regard to public lands, much  evidence was received by the commission;---particularly in the sections  recently opened up by the Grand  Trunk Pacific, and the report offers a  plan of a system of closer settlement  on living areas   to ������������������������������������������������������ be based on the  [Continued on last page] /  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, February 26, 1914  what you do in the factory.

FEBRUARY .26, 1914  THE SAFE POSITION  No doubt Manager Robertson, of  the Central Selling Agency of the  United Growers "Ltd., of the"' Okana7  "gan, has had his hand full of complications the past' season, 'which  have caused misunderstanding and "no-  little complaint from those effected by  the conditions he has endeavored' to  clear up. But there can be no question as to his straight, safe, business methods, and he has richly deserved the unanimous support oi the  directors which has been given him.  In a brief speech at the meeting of  the executive held last week, Mr.  Robertson clearly expressed himself  on the policy of the Selling Agency  when he said: "It is possible to  materially reduce central charges for  next year, and it might be possible  to fix charges at the net cost of last  year's business, he believing that  with a good volume of business refunds could be made even from these  rates. He urged that if the locals  put their own house in order most of  JJlg__fliffi.cJjltie_s___would    be., done away.  f fame, can only be   kept at bay with  the aid of the women's vote.  Bad housing and under-payment of  work, avoidable diseases, etc., will  come to B. C. as they came to Australia and New Zealand in due course  .unless the people are watchful- and  determined that the land shall be  kept clean. Experience has shown  that the men alone cannot accomplish this: it takes the intelligence  and conscience of a whole nation.  :' The. women of B. C. will not be  slow to demand the privilege that  their sisters *m the western states of  the United States^already' have, and  I venture to hope that the' men of B.  C. ��������������������������� will prove equal to- those ..of  /America in ; realizing women's right  .-.to vote. ' ���������������������������      ...

Senator  Clapp,   of Minnesota,  tells  of the cross-examination of a" Swede,  y" 'Now,  Jensen,' asked the lawyer,  'what do you do ?'  "'Tank you,' replied the Swede,  'Aw am not vera well.' -  " 'I didn't ask you how your health  was,' said the lawyer, 'but what you  do ?' "  " 'Oh, yes, Aav see,' said the fellow,  his stolid countenance changing a  trifle, 'Aw work.'  " 'Yes, I know that, but what kind  Oi work do you do ?'  "It's puddy hard work.'  " 'Yes, but do you drive a team,  or do you work on a railroad, or do  you, work _in._ a .factory _?'.   The City "Council could not see  its way clear to consider the application of Mr. A. Fulton to be  reimbursed by the city for moneys loaned by him to the Board  of Trade for the purpose of making the apple show exhibit at  Vernon in 1912, arid last Monday  evening the city clerk was instructed to refer Mr. Fulton to  the secretary of the Board of  Trade for a settlement. This  may be the proper course to pursue. But it does not settle ,the  matter. The Board of Trade will  no doubt be brought to life again,  as it should be. But it is not to  be expected that the few businessmen who will have to carry  it along, will take upon themselves the payment of the liabilities of the old board���������������������������liabilities  which were incurred in good  faith on the strength of the petition of the ratepayers presented to the 1913 council asking  that a special tax be levied to  raise a publicity fund. The petitioners' request was not carried  out, wisely we believe, when we  consider the turn which finances  took the past year. Instead, the  1913 council appropriated the  sum of $800 out of current revenue at the time the years estimates were made, in April, for  the purpose of paying off all indebtedness incurred.by the board  oh the strength of. the petition.  But the estimate thus made was  not realized and the liabilities of  the Board of Trade were not  liquidated.  The action of the new council  will no. doubt force the Board_of  Trade (or the businessmen of  Enderby) to get together and  take the matter in hand and clean  J up.the business now being tossed  from the shoulders of the board  to those of the council and back  again. The . liabilities were in  curred on the credit of the city  and cannot ba repudiated.  ���������������������������   : \-.

INSTITUTE     LECTURES  WHAT THE WOMEN WILL DO  Editor Enderby Press:  ;_J}car,_S.ir.:_ As7_a._newuonicr^to-tbis  country one cannot fail to be struck  by the great opportunity which lies  before the people of making this land  clean and free from thc many evils  to be found in older countries.  When the population increases, and  towns spring up, strong laws and a  healthy public opinion to enforce  them, are necessary. This can only  be brought about by an enlightened  and progressive nation of men and  women.  The record of the countries where  women have thc vote show that,  though there may be mistakes, their  influence is thrown on the side of a  better and healthier national life.  It will be necessary to see that  tbere are strict laws against adulteration oi tood, such as the women  have helped to bring in In Australia.  The drink question also must not be  allowed to become the vested interest  it is in older countries, whilst the  "saloon" influence in the U. b. A.  has a world-wide notoriety.

C.  Press Gallery, B.C. 'Legislature,  Victoria, Feb. 23.���������������������������With the passage  of the $10,000,000 Loan Bill, the presentation of a measure to increase  Provincial aid to the Canadian Northern Pacific railway company by  $10,000 per mile (an extension of time  being also provided for in connection  with the several branch undertakings  of the company to 1916), the preliminary caucussing of the greatly reduced estimates of Provincial expenditure for the coming year, and  the inauguration of night sittings of  the House, the beginning/of the end  of the 1914 session of the Provincial  Parliament is at hand. It is expected that prorogation will take place  on the 6th of ��������������������������� March,- and that almost immediately thereafter Prime  Minister Sir Richard McBride will  leave for Ottawa, there to confer  with Premier Borden on a variety of  extra-important matters: Asiatic exclusion legislation, the Better Terms  question and commission, federal aid  for railway undertakings in western  Canadian territory, etc. It is currently believed here that the conference of the Premiers will also embrace the question of the filling of  thc High Commissionership for Canada, and that it is more than a bare  possibility that Hon. Mr. 'Borden  himself will go to London in the late  Lord Strachcona's place, his mantl  of leadership falling upon Sir Rich  ard, who now appears to find in Hon  Robert Rogers his only formidabl  rival.     ' _ ���������������������������    "'   '  Although the Loan Bill, railway  legislation and the new Forests Act  constituted by far the most important parliamentary business of the just  ended week, discussion did not by any  means focus upon these measures, but  rather upon the" .well-worn theme of  the Nanaimo strike disturbances,  which the Opposition has been working to the uttermost , linrAt for local  political 'capital. - . ' ��������������������������� - .* ' -:.  ���������������������������'���������������������������Under the- new. ��������������������������� Canadian- Northern-  Aid Act, the Provirice;guarantees-'pay-  ment of both principal and interest.  .m bonds-1 and*,debentures -to--' an  amount not to .exceed'"-$10,000/per  mile additional on' the company's  main line. , Under the original'agreement ratified by the legislature in  January, 1910, the Province guaranteed the 500 miles from Vancouver to  the Yellowhead Pass which constitutes the main line, to-the extent of  $35,000- per mile; the new Act increases this*1 guarantee to $45,000 per  mile. Interest "on the securities under the new Act is fixed at 4J per  cent and the principal matures* in  April," 1950. ~ A provision is included  "which extends the time for completion  of tlie several branch lines, including  the Okanagan, by two years.  There has been no serious celticism  of the Loan Bill. The Finance Minister stated the whole case in brief  when he said that "we are Jai that  stage^in-^the^-history^of-British-Co^  lumbia which demands rapid and full  continuance of the policy of public  works development that has marked  the efforts of the Government during  recent Tyears. The people of this  Province are looking for an extension and an amplification of that  policy."  This expectation cannot be "met out  of revenue'.   ' The public' has been told  that in view of the "great surplus recently on   hand,   no   loan should be  contemplated.       But those who take  this posit'ion   do   not   stop to think  why there was a surplus.     Owing to  the development   of a   wise financial  policy,  the revenue rapidly increased  during a period of general and marked  prosperity, and it was   permitted to  accumulate   so   that   when the time  seemed   ripe,    a    comprehensive   and  general policy of public works development might    be    inaugurated.    In  the latter   part   of  1913 the Government decided that it was timely that  this step should   be   taken, and this  decision   very   happily    synchronized  with the   beginning   of a world-wide  period of   depression,   and the whole  Province will bear out the statement  that if it had not been for this comprehensive policy of public works authorized   by   the   legislature   at-the  Government's request, British Columbia would not   have   passed through  the acute financial period with so-lit  tie interruption oi   its   forward progress. '"������������������������������������������������������*'  The amendments to the Forests Act  extending the present facilities for  selling timber in small quantities and  giving a longer tenure to the pulp  leases, afforded Hon. Mr. Ross opportunity to explain to the House and  public the various provisions of his  new measure (evolved out of a practical experienoe and scientific study  of the situation) and at the same  time to elucidate various matters  concerning the work of the Conservation Departments at which he is head.  The Forests Bill met with the unanimous approval of the' House..  No amendment will this session be  made to the Coal Mines Regulation  Act; nor will the cumbersome annual  petition of the Provincial suffragettes  elicit any legislation. Under the  new Act regarding censorship, theatres, cinematograph houses, etc., provision is made debarring film exhibitions on Sundays.  As to the reports ' of the Royal  'Commissions on Agriculture and Labor, it is expected that the former  will be before the House early this  week, while on the. other hand the report of the Labor Commission will  not be ready for presentation until  the dying days of the session. No  legislation based upon either of these  reports will now be offered this session, yet it is understood that the  reports are in certain respects so  radical that they will indicate entirely new legislation next year along  the lines of public activity with  which they have to deal.

WEAK, TIRED PEOPLE  Are Usually the Victims of Pale,  Watery Blood  . Anaemia is the medical term for  poor or watery blood. It may arise  from a variety of .causes, such as  Mack of exorcise, hard study, improperly ventilated rooms or workshops,  imperfect assimilation of food. ei;e.  The chief symptoms are extreme pallor of the face, lips and gums; rapid  breathing and palpitation of the heart  after slight exertion; headaches, dizziness, sometimes fainting spells and a  tendency to hysterics, swelling of the  feet and limbs, a feeling of constant  tiredness and a distaste for food. Dr.  Williams' -Pink Pills fire a certain  cure for anaemia, because they make  new, rich blood, which stimulates and  strengthens every organ and every  part of the body. The following is  one among thousands of cases of this  serious trouble cured bv the use of  Dr. Williams Pink Pills. Miss Goorg-  itia Rayfond. St. Jerome, Que., says:  "About a year ago my health began  to give. out.. I suffered from headaches, heart palpitation, dizziness and  appeared to be threatened with a  general breakdown,. I was at this  time employed in the family of a doctor, who seeing my condition, gave me  medicine T-took-this -faithfully���������������������������for-.  some lime, but with no benefit, and I  grew much discouraged. Then a  friend advised me to try Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills, saying that she had found  a cure through them in similar conditions. I took her advice, got a supply of the pills and took them regularly for some time. Gradually I  became strong and In the course of  a month or so T was again enjoying  the best of health! and have not since  had the~leasLreturn~ofihe old symptoms.

Reports from California, Florida and Spain point to a shortage of  large "bold* fruit. American shippers have great hopes 'of exploiting  the British market successfully this  winter. They mean to exact the  last farthing for their goods. This  policy is not altogether wise, because once an article���������������������������especially fruit  ���������������������������becomes prohibitive in price a reaction is sure to set in and the public will not have it. Par better results are obtained by keeping the  cost at a moderate level, thereby securing continuous patronage.  "Of late years the tendency has-  been to provide cheaper and not  dearer fruit. With the ever-increas^  ing competition from all.parts of,the  world the public, have Ween taught' to  expect apples at prices within the  reach of ., the middle-class purse.  Growers are always complaining that  the people of the British Isles do .not  eat enough fruit���������������������������that they^ must be  taught to use it 7 regularly���������������������������and so  forth. To regulate supplies -in-'such  a manner as to make the commodity  as dear as possible seems a;most  eccentric plan to attain popularity.'

Secretary!^  CARELESS OF IMPORTANT  ASSET  Dr. Fernow says that in. "walking  along the streets of any city one will  find at least from 25 to 50 per cent,  of the trees in a damaged condition."  In the small towns of Eastern Canada,^ particular, it is safe to say  that at least 75 per cent of the shade  trees need attention, ior, unlike thc  cities, these towns employ no "tree  doctors" to guard the health of the  trees, and even trimming is done but  irregularly, and often carelessly. Yet  if the shade trees in many of these  towns were destroyed one of their  chief attractions would be gone.  English apple'; growers' 'are. waking  up tol the necessity of thiir" adopting  more modern methods*in the marketing of; their fruit;, if they .'are to compete' with the fruit1 from tAmerica.  And, as is usually/the case, the'ma-  . jority of- the English growers take  very unkindly to the' innovation; and  find many objections. But it is apparent that tthe English apple "grower  <is realizing as never before that he is  losing a good thing by allowing himself to. be Crowded off tbe market by  the, growers from this side of the water, and he is striving to'recapture  the market. Commenting on this  phase of the . matter, the London  Daily Telegraph says:  ."These are   troublous times in regard to the   apple.      A  few���������������������������a wise  few, no doubt��������������������������� have dared to break  through    .time-honored     conventions,  and to suggest   that the British or-  chardist   should   adopt   the methods  -which���������������������������.have _ brought. _prosperity_to_  Colonial   and    foreign    growers.    Of  course, the    non-progressive members  of the trade stand up in a solid o>ha-  lanx of opposition.   On many points,  however, all are agreed.-   That good  fruit only should be   raised for market is the universal   opinion, but on  the all-important   subject ol packing  there are not   many who are willing  to depart "from"  old "and   cherished  conditions.     Certain people who have  achieved notable successes at Covent  Garden are   strangly of opinion that  the   best   English   fruit     should   be  packed in boxes.     Others would have  thc   growers    adhere    to   the   time-  honored   system   of   bushel and half-  bushel baskets.     They have all kinds  of objections to   the   introduction of  the modern box      One of their principal   arguments   is   that only one-  tenth of the crop is sufficiently good  in quality and appearance to be put  in boxes.      That, no   doubt,   is correct.     'Then   what   is   to become of  the     remaining    nine-tenths?'     they  plaintively ask.     'Pack them in barrels or   bushels   as   the occasion demands,' is the obvious reply.  "It is the old tale of a few enterprising and go-ahead people being opposed by a majority who cling tenaciously to antequated ideas. Up to  now the latter have earned a comfortable living, and even more, by  strict adherence to conventional  methods. They will not appreciate  the fact that the time has ������������������ome when  English growers must be up and doing, and engage in commercial warfare with up-to-date   weapons.

"There is much talk of- the extra  expense incurred in packing apples, in  boxes. The fruit cannot"' be sent  from the foot of the ladder - at the  bottom of the tree direct to the -market, it is argued/- Of course not. It  must be taken to a packing-shed or  barn and there carefully selected,  graded and packed. Only a small  percentage is good enough to put into boxes, but the extra money obtained for the fruit fully justifies the  increase of expenditure in labor and  other details.     The   advent of boxes  does not signify the extinction of  baskets. Far from it, indeed; but it  certainly provides a means of enabling the English growers to compete  against foreign apples, which are on  the market at the same time, as  theirs."  f 7:ENDERBY'MUSICi'STORE^^Gn^fm-m  , f- - *VJ J ���������������������������,     -     J , V, *.* -,-��������������������������� * X , '/ - * ,.   \ ,. . ���������������������������      t JM-  ��������������������������������������������� ������������������ ������������������ ������������������ ���������������������������' ��������������������������� .���������������������������' ������������������ ,���������������������������.,���������������������������>.��������������������������� ���������������������������>-'���������������������������'.������������������ ��������������������������� ,������������������';���������������������������':���������������������������.;  . r.K.r-f   ���������������������������&-' *XWJ*l  ���������������������������Copyrighi ipr  ChislStiUi. .  i C*Iun,bu*.a  MUST KEEP PRICE MODERATE  It is only natural that the grower  should demand the very best price his  commodity will bring. He has the  right to' expect a price that will  make fruit-growing profitable. And  yet the price to the consumer must  be reasonable if the market is to 6e  steady from season to season. The  trouble, generally speaking, with the  fruit market, and the occasional  soaring of prices, is not so much on  account of the avariciousness of the  growers as it is of the commission  men and the wholesalers. They, too,  wish to make the most out of the  produce they handle, and can always  be relied upon to take advantage of  any extra demand owing to a shortage within their field.  But there is a limit that they cannot afford to go beyond. It is nicely pointed out in the London-Daily  Telegraph, commenting on the condition of the apple market in the metropolis.     It says:  "Most American apples are large  this year, there being a scarcity of  small and medium-sized fruit. This  is unfortunate, as the majority of  if oik do not like too large an apple  at the end of   a' meal.

Enderby THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, February 26, 1914  ROYAL COMMISSION REPORT  Continued from first page  following lines: Firstly, that certain  areas be thrown open for closer settlement; and that these areas be surveyed with special reference to the  quirements of such settlement; secondly, that to carry out this recommendation a separate branch oi the  Land Department'-be formed to be  called the Land Classification Branch  and that nil remaining unalienated  land in the Province be reserved for  opening up on this principle; the  Land Classification Branch to decide  what acreage is a "living area" in  each district.  With regard to thc disposal of thc  land in these areas, thc report suggests that they be open ior either  pre-emption or purchase, and that  both clauses be subject to the completion oi specific improvements before a crown grant is issued. The  report also recommends that purchasers be exempt from the residen-  otial obligation and on account of  this exemption,, the conditions of improvement be made more onerous for  the purchaser than thc pre-emptor.  In dealing with the conditions affecting agriculture in British Columbia, the commission reports that the  increase in the price of land, due to  the rapid growth Oi the coast cities,  has resulted in a large acreage being  withdrawn from cultivation, that too  many of the settlers have been without capital and were unable to obtain the necessary credit. The commissioners are of the belief that in  many cases the small returns of  farmers have been due to lack of cooperation, and says that in some instances discouragement and disappointment were due to misrepresentation by real estate agents.  The commission suggests that prisoners should   not    be kept at stone-  breaking,  but should be employed in  - a  more- useful business  of drain tile-  ,making,  or    quarrying   and crushing  - -lime for farm purposes.     The report  deprecates the employment 01 prisoners upon' the   roads,    as   is   done in  some places, and proposes that where  prisoners are employed at useful and  productive    work,  a   wage should be  given them    which    should go to the  support   of their families, if  married,  or should be retained for use on their  release, if they have no dependants.  The extension of thc rural telephone  system is strongly urged, and its  value both' in development and as a  protective measure is recorded. The  report proposes a modification of the  Saskatchewan telephone system, and  that the Government should aid in  extending the service.  State aided immigration of farm  laborers and domestic servants is advocated, and it is suggested that the  money obtained from the Chinese head  tax be used for this purpose The  report states that there are 10,000  poor law boys in England who might  be brought here and placed in resi-  ���������������������������derrtial- riira-l"=schools"for"a"=_year7=after  which they could be distributed  among the farmers.  Our big sale  of Dry Goods  If  RAILWAY  SUBSIDIES  By and bye the people of Canada  will discover' that if they'have to  build the railways for. the private  companies they may as well operate  them. And when they make this  discovery, then the people of Canada  will have capital to do something  else with besides paying interest for  the railways on their bonded indeb-  cdncss.  It has been discovered by thc Dominion Parliamentary Commission  enquiring into thc facts in connection  with thc construction of the Grand  Trunk Pacific Railway, that it cost  the people of Canada something like  forty millions of dollars more than  was nccessacy to build the road.  Last week the promoters of the C.  N. P. appealed to the Dominion  Parliament for further aid to complete the road, and the House' asked  to see the books so as to learn what  had already been given the road. It  was" discovered that no less than  two hundred and twelve millions had  already been given the C. N. R.  And now the ' Province of B. C. is  asl-ted to further assist the C. N. R.  through this country, and the sum of  twelve millions is to be provided.  Of course we need the railways.  But how we would ridicule and laugh  at our cousins across the line, or our  brothers in the other British possessions if they proved such gullible  fish as we people of Canada have  been.
