JANUARY 1. 1914  PRIVATE ACTS vs. PUBLIC ACTS  ' Particular attention is called to the  letter from Mr. S." S.' Taylor, K. C,  in -the City Council proceedings, on  another page ,of this issue, regarding  the "question of the city's position' in  the matter of its agreement with the  Okanagan Telephone- Company. Mr.  Taylor's opinion in the matter,, while  not the final word in the case', is certainly worth serious' consideration.  Perhaps if the question were referred  to another solicitor, an opinion just  the opposite would be given. However, 'accepting Mr. Taylor's opinion  as sound, and as indicative of the  position the court would take if the  case were brought before it, let us  consider for . a moment the position  of the people of the Okanagan under  it. Let us see where we stand.  The Municipal Act,  under which all  j incorporated    municipalities   in     the  province are bound, says:  (Sec. 194.)      "Notwithstanding any  law to   the    contrary,    a    municipal  council shall not   have the power to  grant to any    person or corporation  any particular privilege or immunity  or exemption from the ordinary juris-  j diction    of   the   corporation   or    to  grant any charter   bestowing a right  j franchise or   privilege,    or   give any  bonus    or   exemption   from any tax,  rate    *   *     *   *     unless same is em  bodied in a bylaw   which before final  passage thereof,    has been submitted  to the electors   of,   the   municipality  (who are qualified to vote upon a by-  Jlaw or contract a   debt,    and which  .has received    the    assent of not less  than    three-fifths    in   number   of the  electors who shall vote upon such by-  ,'Iaw."  I   The Municipal Act is a public Act,'  I built upon   the   common principal of  justice to all, and intended to guard  the interests of ' the    people against  [private    encroachment    and     private  ''gain.     And yet   in    the   face of this  public Act we    have   a   private Act,  rushed   through    the    legislature, no  doubt,  without    anyone   knowing its  contents,    which,    we are told by as  .eminent   counsel   as   that   of    S. S.  ! Taylor,  K. C,    overrides    the public  Act, and grants to a. private corporation rights   and     privileges    within  :the   incorporated    municipalities and  cities of    the    Okanagan which these  municipalities and cities themselves  cannot grant without first submitting it to a vote of the people J  Perhaps' this is the "legal" phase  of it, but we seriously question if this  would be the decision of the court  should the question ever be heard.  It seems so contrary to all justice  and equity, upon which English law  is laid. If a bunch of legislators  .can pass a private Act which will  [override a public Act, without the  [people whose ' rights and interests  are at stake knowing anything about  the transaction, where can there be  any safety for British institutions ?  If a handful 01 die people's representatives at Victoria can pass a  private Act which makes null and  void all Municipal law governing the  granting ol' franchises, what is the  use of the ballot, given the people  for their protection ?  It Is as well, however, that the  people of the Okanagan should realize the "legal" phase of the question.  The people of Enderby know now  what they are up against. If the  phone users like to- pay the present  rates for the rube service the telephone company is giving they need  not complain. If they don't think  the service is worth the money,' then  they are foolish to pay the price. It  is up to them.  There    is   another     phase    of    the  phone question, however,   which this  ettcr from Mr.    Taylor    brings out.  If, as he states,   the .Okanagan Telephone     Company   can    override    all  mun cipal    regulations,    regardless of  J any local   agreement   as to hours of  1 serv'ce   or   rental   rates,    then it is  ���������������������������'useless longer to expect the Okanagan  ��������������������������� Telephone Company to meet the requirements of the' town and district  in the    matter    of   hours and rates.  (The next thing to consider is, how  are we to get the service required ?  The only answer presenting itself is  that, which comes from Summerland,  in the Okanagan,    and the towns and  J ities of Alberta and Saskatchewan.  The sister town    of Summerland has  j rdered every . Okanagan Telephone  Company instrument out on the 1st  of January,    and   a   local'system is  j eing   installed,   to    be in operation  'on or about   the   15th- of January.  ��������������������������� This is tackling the "job right. In  j very city and district where municipal phone systems have been in  operation, they have proved entirely  satisfactory, and are generally run at  a profit,   with   -the    monthly   rental  , rate $12 a year for private residences  'and ?24 a year .for business houses.  ; This low rate puts the -'phone within  f the reach of everybody, and the house  | without a telephone is the exception.  : With 'phones in general use, an in-  t strument in every home and at every  : business desk, it then becomes a real  service, and one would no more do  ( without it than dispense with the  water service.       At the present time  (the 'phone service which the Okana- for seeding: Samples should'be sent  Igan Telephone Company is endeavor- as early as possible to avoid delays.  |ing to iorce the   people to accept is  about as much   service iaa. a benzine  buggy without juice.  PREPARE FOR SPRING SEEDING  Now is the time for farmers to con-  skier the question of a .goj'l sei d  grain supply for next spring.':., The  greater part of the grain in the West  was harvested under ideal conditions  last fall, and little difficulty should  be met with in getting seed of strong  vitality. Notwithstanding this there  are some individuals, and even sections oi the Western Provinces that  were not so fortunate at harvest time  and now have seed of doubtful vitality for spring seeding.  Seed of strong vitality makes a  good start, helps to keep down the  weeds and finally gives the big yield;  while seed of poor vitality is a sure  loss. Therefore, every farmer who  suspects the vitality of his seed  should send a semnln to the Dominion Government Seed Laboratory, at  Calgary, for a government test. In  order that the report of this test  may be of greatest value to the sender, preparatory to sending the sample he should   first   clean his seed as  Titles and decorations, like college  degrees, are for those who need them  GIL LETT'S LYE  ^EATS^DIRTV  ���������������������������"'"���������������������������itecrcRcoPtiiiHo-ruti.oKHctiowiP5"*0'^"*  >0������������������M{D  J!IG     TORONTO ONT.    rio^*>  10  c  WANTED��������������������������� Immediately��������������������������� Live agent  ���������������������������whole time preferred!; distracts,  Vernon, Revelstoke, Summerland,  Enderby, Salmon Arm, Armstrong,  Penticton.

Orchardists, agriculturalists,  merchants and investors in the  Okanagan Valley are congratulating themselves on the year just  ended. Those who have given  attention to poultry and small  crops between trees, to bees,  grapes, ducks, chickens, turkeys  and geese are reaping a harvest,  for the district has been benefitted  greatly by mixed farming, dairying, poultry and sheep-raising.  Okanagan apples exhibited in  December in Great Britain, won  Gold Medals at Bristol, Chester,  Hawick, Chichester, Leeds and  the Royal Horticultural Show in  London. Apples were of unusual  size, flavour and beauty of color,  and Great Britain was given ocular proof of the abundant prosperity prevalent in the Okanagan  Valley where irrigated and non-  irrigated land, yielding such produce, is iucreasing annually, in  value. Earl Grey owns 1,000 acres of these fertile orchard lands  at Vernon; the Coldstream Estate,  in which Lord Aberdeen is a  shareholher, 10,000 acres; Sir  Eric Swayne, ex-governor of British Honduras, owns 1,500 acres,  and-will take up residence next  year. Full bearing apple orchards are paying 30 per cent on  the investment.  The last year the Okanagan  Valley expended $150,000 up to  December 20th for fruit boxes  and crates, and used 3,000,000  tin cans which were imported, as  there is no tin can manufactory  in the valley. Eighteen hundred  carload lots of fruit and produce,  valued at about $i; 250,000,' were wav  shipped all over Western Canada,  New Zealand, China, Australia,  'West-Indies and Great Britain  from this valley.' This does ��������������������������� ?not  include-.thousands of tons, of  pears, peaches, apricots,, cherries;  strawberries, raspberries^- blackberries, currants, graphs and  other soft fruits shipped by express. . " '  " It is declared here that ithe  fruit crop,- particularly of apples,  will be from one-and-a-half times  to twice as large next year, as in  i913^1t is pointed out that 1912  jWas a^good year and 1913 comparatively light, that the present  fall budding gives promise of a  heavy year. Many new orchards  are to come into bearing next  year and there will-also be the  natural increase of those trees  already in bearing. Prices have  been better this year owing to  the co-operative selling plan of  the Okanagan United Growers  Association.  There, are good openings for  manufacturers of pickles, vinegar, cider, jams and relishes of  all-kinds, brick, tile, pottery and  stonewarer-=Asbestos,-clay,-coal,-  limestone, granite, copper and  gypsum deposits are uncovered.  Capital is needed to develop these  industries.  Timber, clay, coal and limestone are closs to the city by rail  and water.  As cheap power as any in B.  C. is generated, municipally  owned, and manufacturers enjoy  a practically uninterrupted service.  An ice and cold storage warehouse is needed. The Dominion  Government will 'give outright a  subsidy amounting to 30 per cent  on the actual cost of the building���������������������������  not on the capitalized stock. The  warehouse must be a bublic one,  and of approved construction to  receive the subsidy.  The natural beauties and recreative advantages of the locality  have attracted a very desirable  class of immigrants to settle in  the Valley, who in their turn  have added to and developed the  social life of the district. The  population ,of the locality has  b.een recruited largely from the  great centres and from the Old.  Country; business men who have  succeeded in the commercial  struggle in the city, and who desire to enjoy, and bring, up their  families among the advantages  of the uncongested areas of the  Sunny Okanagan Valley without  sacrificing the blessings of social  intercourse;  retired Army Offi  cers; Colonials from less__f aye-red  climes; successful farmers^i'rom  the plains, all join with their  neighbors in an educated effort  to reap the benefits of their strenuous endeavours by engaging in  a pleasant and profitable industry,  as their savings give them the  right and the power to do, in a  mild and salubrious climate  among beautiful surroundings.  B. C. LANDS  OPEN  TO SETTLERS  Hon. W. R. Ross, Minister of  Lands for British Columbia,  speaking recently at. Vancouver  dealt with, the land settlement  problems facing the administration. IVir. Ross illustrated his  talk with a map showing the  lands alienated in 1903, when the  present Government went into  power; the lands reserved for  homesteaders and the land with-,  out restriction. The C. P. R.  belt, twenty-miles on either side  of the line, the E. & N. grant on  the Island and^various grants to  transportation companies in the  southeastern part of the Province  were all made before that time.  They were all along the lines of  transportation. While the Dominion Government was bound by  statutory obligations to. induce  immigration into British -Columbia, practically all of the newcomers went to the Prairies. ���������������������������  It was impossible to colonize  without railways, and. the Mc-  Bride Government had entered  into an exterisive^pplicy of, rail-  construction. While - the  population of the province had  increased 50 per cent in the last,  ten years, it had not a rural population, and this could be, expected with the operation of railways.  This was to be expected:. in the  next year or., so; ;when ;British,  Columbia; with ��������������������������� the settlement, of  the farming areas' of the _Province, would be entering - into, its  real destiny.. .  The Government, in its land  sales, was doing away with sale  by private treaty and selling by  auction alone. .Of the .250,000,000  acres in the Province, only 5,000,:  000 acres, or two per. cent had  been sold, and the land so.' sold  had furnished us with the money  to build roads, schools,- bridges  and. other necessary improvements. -If we had not sold in  this way it is probable that the  money would have had to be borrowed. Certainly it would have  had to be raised in, some other  way. Ninety-three million acres  were under reserve absolutely for  the homesteader undsr regulations requiring.personal, occupation, cultivation and development.       ^      -. ���������������������������    ^ ==>   ��������������������������� Surveys had been pushed-"for^  ward, so that any rush of settlement was provided for, 1,700,000  acres being now staked out for  the homesteader. The only  charge for a homestead was a $2  entry fee and a fee of $10 when  the homesteader gets his Crown  grant. In the last three years  the Government had- issued between 9,000 and 11,000 pre-emption records. In the last year  this number had been 3,600,  which, with 1,200 issued in the  railway belt, made 4,800 families  that went on the farm in the last  year. While he was not there to  make any announcement of policy  on behalf of the Government, he  felt safe in intimating that it  would not be long before the  Government undertook some ample and strong policy for the attracting of farmers to our agricultural lands. This would be when  the railways'were completed. It  would result, he was sure, in reflecting to the profit of the people of Vancouver.

INTERNATIONAL BARBER COLLEGE  Alexander   Ave.,   First   Door   West  of Main St., Winnipeg  AHABS HOUSE  The Sphere reproduces a photograph of one of the most interesting  and valuable discoveries so far recorded .in the field of Biblical archaeology in the palace of a Hebrew king,  believed- to be the ''Ivory house" of  Ahab, which was recently unearthed  at Samaria, in Northern. Palestine. Labels with Hebrew writing, which seem  to have been", in. actual use during the  lifetime and perhaps in. the households of Oinri and Ahab. have also  been found, as well as fragments of  pottery and other interesting remains.  It was in the palace here thnt Ahab  dwelt with Qiieen Jezebel, and where  Nabooth' had his vineyard- Among the  ruins many inscriptions have been  found containing Biblical names, and  there is a frequent reference to a vineyard,which it is believed may be the  vineyard ofvNabbth.:     ���������������������������  This is the first and only palace of  a Hebrew king ever found, and accordingly regarded as unique and of the  deepest interest to archaeologists and  Biblical students. It was undoubtedly an immense edifice, occupying about  two acres of space, consisting of  chambers grouped around courts-  Here and there stand portionsNof the  finished wall to the height.of several  courses of stone.  Of the Roman remains found, the  most imposing is a. 130 foot wide staircase leading down . to an altar and  probable temple, put up in honor of  the Emperor Augustus, where was also found a huge marble trunk of a  Roman statue lying headless and.without arms and limbs, which was in all  probability that of Caesar. ��������������������������� A large  Roman basilicia was also uncovered,  with its tribune in scm-circular form  still intact- It is thought that there  may be valuable documents here that  will do not a little in confirming the  Biblical narrative, and also throw  much interesting light on the habits  and life of the ancient Jewish kings.  RATTLESNAKE  HUNTING  One of the curious modes of getting  a living is an industry to be found in  Brazil and parts of Central America.  It is that of hunting therrattlesnaKe,  which is valuaole on account of its  skin and oil.     ?i  The hunters generally work in  pairs. One man carries what might  be called a hshing-pole, the other a  s*-arp scythe. The pole has a stout  wire attached to it, and there Is an  ordinary pike hook on the end of tne  wire\  .Moving cautiously through the  grass, so as not to disturb the sleeping snake, who is always found basking in the warm sunshine near a loose  end of rock, the man with the puns  prods his snakeship more or less gently, and carefully holds the hook invitingly near the rattler's head- The  snake wakes up angry, makes a dart  at the nearest irritating object, which  is the fish-hook, and very accommodatingly allows the sharp tines to penetrate his jaws.  The man with the pole holds the  entrapped rattlesnake at a safe distance ���������������������������while his comrade moves up,  and. with a slash of the scythe, severs  the snake's head from his body,  which is then deposited in a bag, and  the hunters go in search of another  snake.

Tonics were useless to restore an active desire for  food. The doctors told me my liver  and kidneys were both at fault, but  the medicines they gavo ma were too  severe, and reduced my strength so  that I had to ubnndon them. At  the suggestion of u friend who had  been cured of blood and skin trouble,  I began the use of Dr. Hamilton's  Pills. The difference I first noticed  was. that while they cleansed the system,, instead of feeling weaker I felt  better after taking them. Indeed  their activity was so mild it was easy  to forget 1 had taken them at all;  they seemed to go right to the liver,  and in a very brief time not only did  all source of nausea disappear, but I  began to crave food and I digested it  reasonably well. Then I began to put  on weight until within three months  I was brought to a condition of good  health. I urge Dr. Hamilton's Pills  for all who are in poor health."

This is a small log from  the apple tree in the garden at Wool-,  thbrpe, on'Which the famous apple  (the most famous apple since Eve and  Eden, with the possible exception of  those of Helen of Troy and Wilhelm  Tell), grew. Mr. C. W. Waller, of  Burwnsh, Sussex, who presented the  log to the society, sent the following  history with it.���������������������������His father, born in  1807, was at school when ten or  twelve, with the rector of Stoke, Lin-  Valuable Horse Saved  by "Nerviline"  .y -  WAS   TOO   SORE   AND   LAME   TO  WORK���������������������������QUICKLY   CURED  BY NERVILINE  "I have had a long experience In  treating horses, and t can safely say  tnat I know of no liniment for strains,  sprains, and swelling that is so useful around the stable as Nerviline."  Thus writes Mr. J. E. Murchison,  from his home. Crofts Hill P.O. 'I  had a fine young mare that   wrench-  colnshire,  named  Pearson.      After a,  heavy storm news reached the school \<?d   "������������������������������������'  "ghl    foreleg,   and  from  the  that Sir Isaac's apple tree had blown ! shoulder down she \\js stilt, sore and  down.      The rector and some of Lie '    '     '  boys at once set out for Woolthorp-  which is not far from Stoke. They  found the tree, which for many ycarj  had been propped up to preserve it,  lying on the ground. The rector obtained a saw, and cut a number of  small logs ��������������������������� from one of the limbs.  Mr. Waller's father received one of  these and preserved it with great  care until his death, when it came  down as one of the heirlooms to his  son.  CHILDHOOD   DANGERS  SORRY   HE     REFORMED  She was engaged, and he was a  very nice young man, but all the same  she could not help wishing to reform  him in some way. Accordingly, as  they sat side by side one night, she  s id:  William, we should all make some  (sacrifice in our lives. My brother  Harry has given "n smoking. What  :���������������������������<> you going to do?  I think, love, replied thci young  man, I shall deny myself the pleasure of kissing you. That will be a  great sacrifice.  And was the maiden pleased? Of  course she was not. Three days  elapsed line! again thev sat side bv  side.  I have something to fell you, William, she murmured.  What Is It. sweetest? said William.  Only this, dearest, she whlspced.  !My brother Harry has started smoking again.  No "symptoms that indicate any  the ailments of childhood  should  allowed   to   pass   without  proriipt  tention.

FROM   EAD   TO   WORSE  Blanc's wife, whenever ;.. shutter  rattled, or a board creaked, would  wake up her husband and say:���������������������������  Oh, John, there are burglars down  stairs! Don't you hear them? Oh,  what shall we do?  But Blanc hit at last on an idea that  he thought would compose his wife  permanently.  Look hero, he 'said, you can rest  assured those noises aren't burglars.  Burglars'work in absolute silence- You  never hear a sound from them.  And now Mrs. Blanc wakes her bus-  ba:id up in a blue panic whenever  cere's no noise.  LIFE WITHOUT MICROBES  Microbes are not indispensable *to  all life if they are indispeusable to  any. The question has been definitely settled- A cage completely  sterilizer at. flO degrees was niauo auj  the openings of the cage closely  stopped with cotton and protected  from the outside by a hermetically-  closed metallic chamber. Such man-  guarded by aseptic rub'^- '"''^ /"���������������������������  ipulations as were necessary in opening the cage -were made by hands  to such a sterilized cage tiuee u"6..j  eggs were placed after having been  externally sterilized. The cage was  fitted with a glass pavilion or chicken  run. where the chickens could develop during their six weeks' sojourn in  the cage. In the cage were sterilized  air. nure water, sterilized sand, and  sterilized feed. The experiment  showed that life does not depend upon  microbes, but that the vital work of  the organism is easy and natural when  everything is -sterilized.������������������������������������������������������ Harper's  Weekly.  swoiitm.

Dear" Sir: The Okanagan Telephone Company, incorporated by private Act of the legislature  in 1907, made application to the  Municipal Council in June, 1908, for  the right to do business in this city.  "After prolonged negotiations an  agreement was arrived at between the  city and the company, and duly executed by both parties thereto in  September,  1908.  '���������������������������'The agreement so executed was  embodied in a by-laiv and submitted  to the vote of the ratepayers in the  same month and year, when it was  confirmed by them by a unanimous  vote.' The said agreement, copy of  which is enclosed herewith for your  perusal, provides in Sec. 4 that the  companyjs charges for telephone  rental shall not exceed $2 per month  and $3 per month for dwelling and  business premises respectively; it also  provides, in Sec. 6, for a daily service (except on Sundays and holidays) from'8 a.m. till G.30 p.m.  "Notwithstanding these provisions,  the company, in July last, notified  telephone users that after August'1st  the rental lor private houses and  business   places   would   be   $3     per  by the ratepayers; the power and  franchise is given by their Act of Incorporation and is within t!te legislative powers, of the Legislature.

President Wilson enjoys a joke.  Recently on one of his trips the  President had given orders not  to have the train make unnecessary stops,   but  it  ran  slowly  through scores of villages, where  big  crowds  cheered   as ' they  caught a glimpse of the President.  There was one exception  to the  rule.   The President requested a  stop at Culpepper, Va., the home  of Dr. Cary T. Grayson,-U. S. N.,  the   President's  physician  and  constant companion. Dr. Grayson  said a  through  train  had  not  stopped^therTiO ve' "years.  ' 'The whole town will be there,"  he told the President, enthusiastically, as he mentioned that 2201  persons were found there in the  last census.
