BOY SCOUT DANCE  IN wishing the people of this Province a  Happy New Year Sir Richard McBride  struck that chord of optimism and dominant faith in the future greatness of the  Province, both as a unit and as an integral part of the Dominion. "We'have  ���������������������������**��������������������������� put our hands to the plough and will not  \ turn back," said he, "and the year that  NEXT Monday is nomination day, and has just passed should be a milestone of  next Thursday election day. The splendid encouragement in our forewarcl  past year has been one of little civ c de- march. The need of the day in this Pro-  velopment or progress.

'.The third annual ball given on  New Year's night by the Enderby Scouts proved to be  all it  promised JThe^_danci ng==fioor-  was crowded, and the dancers  could not have enjoyed themselves more. The Enderby Orchestra excelled itself in music;  the floor management was the  best, and the service by the Boy-  Scouts sustained in every detail  the good record they have made  for themselves. To Assistant  Scoutmaster F., R. Prince" arid  Mrs. Prince is due the honor of  leading what was pronounced by  all to be the most perfectly executed grand march ever seen in  this district, and to Scoutmaster  Campbell the honor was given  for the simple but very appropriate hall decorations. At the  conclusion of the grand march  at the bugle's call 'the Scouts  lined up and saluted the flag as  it .was raised--to the mast head  over the stage. The affair netted the troop sufficient.to pay all  expenses and leave something  over.

Great Britain and Germany are  said to have concluded a comprehensive political agreement  which optimists believe will go  far toward eradicating the danger of war between the two empires.  It is learned that an announcement of the ."agreement is not  likely to be deferred beyond the  date of the approaching session  of the British Parliament. The  negotiations have been carried on  exclusively in London, so that  the first announcement of their  result will be made there.  Although the agreement is far  reaching, it fails conspicuously  to touch what impartial authorities in both countries recognize  to be the issue between Great  Britain and Germany, namely  naval antagonism.  Britain has made numerous  overtures to bring about ah understanding on this burning ques^  tion, but Germany has rejected  them on the ground that her na-'  val policy is laid down . by law  and can not be altered without  an act of parliament. What the  government's attitude toward an  alteration of policy would be may  be inferred from the recent, remark of the Conservative Kreuz  Zeitung in response to the suggestions of the British first lord  of the.admiralty, Mr. Winston  Churchill:  "Our naval programme must  be carried through at all costs.  We shall not alter it a jot or tittle,  even if the whole of Africa is of-,  fered as a bribe."  The approaching agreement  mainly concerns Anglo-German  relations in Portuguese Africa.  Germany is left free to act in  Angola and she has also obtained  the right to, construct, a railroad  terminating in the neighborhood  of. Rhodesia. This will join the  Capto-Cairo line, the realization  of which was Cecil Rhodes' great  dream. t, ���������������������������  By this Angola will become a  German protectorate. It is a  vast tract of territory 312,000  square miles in extent, - with a'  native population of 2,000,000,  lying north of German South-  West Africa: Its proximity to  the German colony is, of course,  the factor which made the German claims to it so strong.  As for the Portuguese possessions on the other side of the  continent, Mozambique on the  north and Gazaland on, the south,  territory extending from the 11th  to the 26th parallels, the northern  part adjacent to German East  Africa, will pass under German  control and the southern part, regarded as a natural seaboard for  the Transvaal, will become British. The boundary wjll _be  neitherthe Zambesi River or in its  vicinity.  - Advices have been received in  London from Lisbon to the effect  , that not only has an agreement  been completed but that the purchase money has already been  paid by the two powers to Portugal. It is said this amounts to  - something over $100,000,000. The  Portuguese refrain, for political  reasons, from making public the  details. It is felt such an arrangement would endanger the  existance of the present government, which awaits a more favorable time to inform the public  of the bargain. . The position of  Portugal toward the territories  will be much the same, under the  agreement, as that of Turkey  with regard to Egypt. It will  have suzerainty more in name  than anything else.

"The Inttltute now has a library  of 25 books on' agriculture and al.  lied industries for the use of members, in the prize won by the Institute last year. I wish members  would donate books to the library so  that we may enlarge it from year to  year. A reference library is a great  asset in nny community. The travelling libraries are well patronized  and T trg.st are of benefit to  membersf  "Seeds,   fertilizer,    spraying  material,    etc.,    were    purchased    for    our  members to the value of $G44.   Three  hundred    and    eighty-two     cases    of  powder were sold to members in the  | past  teason.      The low-freezing  pow-  J der we arc trying seems to give great  satisfaction      The    powder company  I advises using a   stronger cap in cold  weather so as   to   prevent miss-fires.  They recommend a Nof C cap.  "Registered seea oats will be supplied by the Department at cost in  the coming season. Those requiring  them are requested to communicate  at once with the Secretary,  "I would like to see crop competitions organized in the district this  year. This is a matter that should  be discussed at this meeting,  "In regard to incorporation, I  was unable to carry out the  wishes of the members, as I am  informed an institute cannot be  incorporated.  The registry of articles for  sale and wanted has been of use  the past season and has been the  means of getting buyers and sellers together, but I feel it has not  been made use of the way it  should be. If I had a good list  I could get better results; as  then it could be printed and circulated. I have also found, a  tendency to ask me to register  stuff and to neglect the' fee' of  25c. I may say I. have had an  enquiry from England as to the  listing.  "I regret to say absolutely no  use was made of the Babcock  tester in the past year. I feel  members do not realize its value.  bers, if they can only be brought  to light.  "Any suggestions as to work  the Institute could take up would  be greatly welcomed.  "I must apologize for any  shortcomings in my report, but  my health has been bad the past  few- weeks.  "I wish to again thank Mr.  Hine and Mr. Walker, of the  Press, for their kind astistance  to me, and the directors and  members in general for their encouragement. I trust the coming  our j season will see the institute further on the road to success."  At the conclusion of Secretary  Handcock's report, President  Little reviewed the year's work.  Concluding his remarks, he said  in regard to the library won as a  prize by the Institute, they all  had read the report of the annual convention and would agree  that the prize was really won by  the secretary's personal work and  therefore really should be his,  but Mr. Handcock wishes it to be  the nucleus of an Institute reference library. When it came to  the election of officers, Mr, Little  said he wished to be relieved of  the presidency, as he felt there  was need of a change.  The treasurer's report showed  a total of $1,248.19 assets, against  which were liabilities amounting  to $900.85, leaving a surplus of  assets of $348.34.

White  Wyandottes take both the first and  second place with scores of 214 and  204 eggs respectively. The leaders  occupy pen No. 23, and are owned by  Dean Bros., Keatings P.O., Vancouver Island. The second pen is No.  35, and is owned by S. Perr'.val,  Port "Washington, B.C." Pen No. "38,  is owned by Mr. J. H. Cruttenden,  237 Princess street, New Eestminster,.  and is third, these birds having 138  J 89 eggs to their credit. They are  Buff Wyandottes. Tom Barron, the  owner of .the fowls in the fourth  place in the nonweight varieties,  owns the hens occupying pen Nof 32,  which is fourth in ,.the contest for the  weight varieties. These hens are  White Wyandottes and have laid 174  oggs so far. E. D. Read of'Duncan,  B. C, comes close to him in fifth  place with White Wyandottes in pen  No. 34, which have 168 eggs to their  credit. Several other varieties are  entered in the contest, but none come  up to the Leghorns and White Wyandottes in the nonweight and weight  varieties respectively. The showing  of the heavy White Wyandottes in  the contest against the White Leghorns in the light class in respect to  egg laying is regarded as noteworthy.  The four best White Leghorn scores  are 236, 192, 164 and 157, totalling  750, as against 214, 209, 174 and 168,  totalling 765 for the four best White  Wyandotte pens. The weight variety is thus on the whole doing better than the lighter egg layers.  .

It  was to save the building to the workmen,   of   Enderby    that   Mr.  Ruttan  tendered on the job.     He wanted to  see the city of Enderby get full value  | for the money spent on the building,  and  he wished to have the Avork on  the building done   so far as possible  by Enderby Avorkmen.
