On the   timber   berths of the  Okanagan    Saw   Mills it is reported  there is a log   supply that will keep  the mill in operation for 25 years.,  Mr. and Mrs. Hi Byrnes, who returned from their eastern trip extending over, the winter months, some  days ago, had 'an exciting experience  in' a railway wreck.

Major Megraw, while  just acquainting himself with the duties of Inspector of Reserves, is an  old timer of the Interior and the Valley, and is a strong man for thc position to which' he has recently  been appointed.

MARCH 26, 1914  MONEY COMING TO"' CANADA'  Capital "is '. the   greatest coward in'  the world..     Take   away from it the  special    privileges   which vall nations  have granted it, and the special protective measures,  and capital will at  once seek cover.     The prime cause of  all financial disturbances, panics, etc.  is the cowardice    of   capital.      Just  now there is the quiet exodus of capital out of the United -.- States financial centres into   Canada.     Recently  "the new currency bill went-into effect  in our neighboring nation, and many  special   privileges    heretofore  enjoyed  by capital have, to some extent, (been j  curtailed.      Among other  things,  the  interest rate has been ��������������������������� reduced on all  debenture,   loans   from 6   per cent to  as low at 4 A.     This   has had a tendency to   scare   capital,   and the big  money interests   of some of the eastern American cities are looking across  the line into Canada for safe security  .at -a bigger .^rate.-o LJ nterest The.i  demand for municipal bonds was  never greater than it is now, Every  day the city of Enderby receives a  letter or two from eastern bond buyers looking for debentures. Unlimited amounts are asked for, and it  would appear that money is going to  be a drug on the market in a little  while���������������������������-at least, so far as municipal  71ebentiTres"afcT concerned.  scarcely add: to Britain's reputation  as a world power."  ' It has been said that only an ignoble mind will impute ignoble reas-  s'ons' for the actions of others. In  this case this would seem to be the  only answer to "Brure's" slap. To  charge Great Britain or > the ' United  States with weakness in dealing with  the Benton case, is for little minds.  Neither Great Britain nor the-'United  States have finished with the Benton case, nor .with Villa. True, they-  have' not sent an armed force into  Mexico, to. shoot' down Villa and  thousands of-other'Mexicans, and in  doing so, leave=-hundreds of their own  soldiers ony the - field; but Villa will  yet pay - clearly for the murder of  Benton, if he lives through the present . Mexican war, and if not Villa,  then Mexico, and Great Britain will  set the price to be paid.  )   EFFICIENT  ADMINISTRATION  Professor E. B. Fernow, the prominent authority on . forestry, writing  in the last issue of the "Forestry  Quarterly," on the Timber Royalty  Bill, says that with its enactment  the Province of B. C. takes the lead  in modern and efficient timber land  administration.. Professor Fernow  said:  "A very important and very sane  readjustment of royalties "for timber  licences has been embodied in the bill  by the B. C. Minister,of Lands, the  Hon. W. R. Ross. The Minister of  Lands, who was responsible for the  c.sA;J:l)Aishment_.,tw.o__ years. ..ago, of,_an  It is apparent that Inspector of Indian Agencies, A. Megraw, intends to  compel the observance of the Indian  Act in the matter of the dosposition  of or dealing, with property, belonging  to the Indian Reserves. In the past  the Indians, or the whites dealing  with the Indians, held a lofty disregard for the regulations laid down by  the Indian Act; timber and poles,  ties and cordwood, have come off  the reserves to the value of many  thousands annually, and it is hardly  probable the Indian Department has  ever known anything about it.  Discussing a matter which has been  the cause of some friction at Hedley  between the Indians and the Hedley  Golf Club, in which  sing was permitted  reserve by the Club,  an open letter says:  "To further explain the situation  and prevent misunderstanding,- the  public should- know' that no individual . Indian can give permission to  anyone to remove anything from the  reservation, either in the shape of  timber, earth or gravel, without the  written consent of the Superintendent  General of Indian Affairs, and neither  has the chief, the band, the Indian  Agent nor -myself the authority t  grant such permission without that  assent. - It will therefore be of no  avail to offer the excuse that permission has been obtained from any lessee- or any of those in .the chain oi  responsibility .already enumerated,, to  stay prosecution. - * * *- The. one  thing-about which I want to .have no  misunderstanding . is' that -henceforth  any liberties :or interference of any  kind (With the reserves that is not  permitted by the Indian Act, must  cease."  GET BUSY !  PIN-HEADED BRAVERY  "Bruce"  in    Saturday  Sunset,  gets  rid of this:  "General Villa, the Mexican rebel  leader, apparently had reason to despise the valor of the two great English-speaking nations, Great Britain  and the United States. ' Although  responsible for the death of at least  one British subject and a large number of American citizens, Villa is  still, at large and the British Empire  is forced to sit back and wonder  what has happened to so alter the  spirit of which the Empire has  boasted for so many centuries, making good the boast whenever the occasion arose. Today it is different.  Apparently Great Britain and the  United States are more concerned in  the repeal of the free tolls clause in  the Panama Canal bill than in the  lives of their citizens. Surely Great  Britain is not holding back her  wrath merely to earn the friendship  of President Wilson so that he will  continue to urge the repeal of the  measure.

Price Ellison Speaks Strongly  in Favor of Co-Operative Movement  The members of the Armstrong  Growers' Association are to be congratulated on the big success oi their  popular banquet given last Thursday  evening in the Opera House, Armstrong, the purpose of which was to  get together in a social way and  get a larger vision of the past season's work, and a clearer conception  of what is in store for the approaching harvest. Tables were laid for  nearly 200, and this number was ex  cecded by fully 50. Mr. W. N. Town-  send, president of the Association,  presided ,at the tables, and Mr. W.  R. Rogers acted as toastmaster.  Mayor Wright was called upon to  respond to the' toast, the City of  Armstrong, and Reeve,, Matheson to  that of the Municipality. The former  briefly welcomed the members of the  Association' and nvisitors to Armstrong, while Mr. Matheson dwelt  upon the good relationship existing,  between the city and the municipality  and hoped to see the cordial feeling  continue in the future as it had been  in the past. Mr. Matheson was of  the opinion that it had been of in  calculable value to the Okanagan to  have had Mr. Ellison in the. Provincial cabinet, and then paid a worthy  " tribute to the wotfk done for the district in particular ' and the agricultural industry in general by Mr., Ellison's deputy, Mr. W. E. Scott.  Mr.    Townsend,   speaking   for   the  Armstrong  Growers'  Association,  recalled that the    association, had not  been formed till April 26th last, and  yet,    more   than   $105,000   worth   of  business had   been   handled the past  .'season,'which,    he   said,   taken'as a  whole, was "sufficient to warrant the  belief * that ,+.he foundation for future  .��������������������������� successes had been Veil laid.',    "���������������������������- -   .-  ^ Mr. A. Fowler;,one-of the, directors  ��������������������������� ^���������������������������pointed'    out'"that   'notwithstanding  the difficulties bf the past season, the  .criticism   and   abuse,   two   of     last,  ' year's , directors . had > been re-elected;  - '.a fact which .he   felt ,was ample recompense for all the work entailed.  Mr. P. B. ' Cossitt, responding to  the toast, !'The Vernon Fruit Union,'  told of the struggles rof the cheese  manufacturers in Ontario, who, until  they organized a co-operative marketing plan,. received only seven , and  eight cents a pound for cheese. Now  they get 14c and 15c a pound.  "There have been many unfounded  rumors as   to   the    activities of the  ���������������������������  Central," said Mr." Cossitt, "and you  must feel that the Central belongs to'  the (locals,���������������������������'is, in fact, your organi-  tion. Without loyalty from the locals the Central could not exist.  13very local save one has a surplus  to show as a result of last year's  ==-operationsf=Inj=Vernon7=for-inst'a'nce,-  after making a refund to thc growers  we have a surplus of $2,000."  Mr. J. E. Reekie, president of the  Okanagan United Growers, speajking  to the toast, "Out Larger Selves,"  paid a tribute to the Armstrong ladies, to whom so much was due for  the success of the banquet. Every  speaker, in fact, called attention to  th excellent tables spread, and complimented the ladies on making so  good a showing.  '''During thc coming season, with  shorter pools, there should be a  greater measure of satisfaction,"  said Mr. Reekie. "We have worked  hard, and we have made mistakes,  but they have been made with the  best of intentions.  7'In large measure our success last  season was due to the untiring efforts of our manager, Mr. Robertson.  There have been many street rumors,  and many charges have been made  against Mr. Robertson, all of which  I brand as absolutely unfounded. I  have found him" a man of rare energy  ;and sterling integrity. The charges  of extravagance made against the  Central are unfounded, as is shown  by our balance sheet, which shows  that all our operations were conducted at a cost of less than 5 per'cent.  ��������������������������� "The problem of marketing our  crop this season will afford room for  difference of opinion, but I myself  think it would be unwise to break  with the broker's who last year gave  our produce such excellent distribution. My counsel is that if we can  link up with them on satisfactory  terms we should be glad to do so. If  not, we can market our crop in another way, but I hope we shall not  have to do it."  Hon. Price Ellison, minister of  Finance and Agriculture, was enthusiastically greeted when he was  called upon to address the gathering.  Mr. Ellison made a stirring plea for  support of the co-operative movement  and outlined some of the measures  the government has in contemplation  for further aid to those engaged ,in  agriculture. '  "Last year, 1913, was regarded by  the superstitious as an unlucky year,'  said he, "and in many districts it  was an unlucky-season. Let me assure you tonight that hadv you not  had a working co-operative organization to market your produce last season, the length and breadth of the  Valley would have been convinced that,  1913 was an unlucky year.  "Co-operative marketing will be  the financial salvation of the farmer.  It is not sound business for everyone  of hundreds of growers in each district to be trying t^ make, his own  price. There were disappointments  last year, and probably will be this  year. '��������������������������� I myself was disappointed  on the .- returns I received from my  prunes, shipped through the association, but I shall market my prune  crop in the same manner this season.  1 "I ,hope to see the co-operative or  ganization handling 90 per cent of  the business of this Valley, and hope  that . eventually the co-operative  movement will - spread over the  length-and breadth of the Province."  Mr. Ellison7 commenting on the  fact that the - Armstrong Farmers'  Institute has the largest membership  .of ���������������������������any similar organization in the  Province, expressed.'.'surprise that  Armstrong .has no woman's institute,  and urged'that one be formed "at once  -"The. or ganization ~\ will.' cost;, you  nothing,",,he -poinjted'-out.-i "Tho dues  are merely nominalr'andvthc speakers  sent out by' the'y Government "cost  thousands of dollars,v.and are all experts^ .covering such- varied. topics^as  dairying, home sanitation, nursing  and care of children.ViV  .The Minister of Agriculture Miju  spoke, of the immense new market's  the C. N. R. will', open to the producers in the Valley, and declared that  the prairie market belongs by right  to the people of British .Columbia  "We did not get all of that market  last, year," he said," "but we got our  share of it, and we shall get our  share this year under the present  management.

Mr. Ellison urged upon the growers  the wisdom of making provisions for  holding part of the apple crop for the  late winter and early spring markets,  and said that today Washington  grown apples are retailing at Victoria  for $2.65 per box, "and we haven't  a box to offer from our Okanagan  orchards."  "I am delighted to find you so enthusiastic as regards co-operation.  Your success will depend largely on  your local organization. Be sure  you do not have two men to do one  man's work, and avoid such mismanagement as has arisen at one local,  where   one   man's   overtime pay has  totalled more than his regular wage.  ''You will never succeed in the largest way until you surround yourself  with stock, for stock is the basis for  successful agriculture. The Government is directly responsible for the  organization of the co-operative  movement in this Valley, and T have  no hesitancy in saying in this particular the Government has done well.  The department of Agriculture secured  the services of Mr. Robertson, paying  him $20 a day and expenses, to travel  over the district, with Mr. Scott,  deputy minister of agriculture, explaining the objects and advantages  of organizing, and' inducing the various sections to fall into-line."

It's future growth  and prosperity depends on these peo-  ple.   This series of articles, "Sinning Against Your Home Town," will deal  with the subject in a big way���������������������������they will be written concisely and straight  from the shoulder to make it clear to everyone.     Tha points brought out  Why should a man bring his family  to Enderby ? Because Enderby offers  him opportunities to p rovide for  them���������������������������whether in a business way or  farming. Enderby offers his family  educational, social and pleasure attractions.   Tt is very pleasant to live   in-Enderby   When  this    man   brings  his  family  here, he has in    mind    making it his  home   for   good.       lie   is    going to  spend   all   efforts   to   build  up that  home.     He is investing his labor to !  provide for his family.     A city built ;  by men   like   this    will always grow j  a ihI prosper. 1  The more    attractive he makes his ;  home,  the more  valuable it  becomes.  In  ten years, his original investment  will double and triple, if Enderby, as  a whole, keeps pace with him.  The merchant coming to Enderby to  go into business, sees at a glance  that it is a hustling and bustling  city. Its people work and are always improving. This makes him  think���������������������������gives him confidence���������������������������he sees  his way of investing in a stock of  goods and opens up to serve the people with the necessities or luxuries of  life. He secures the best goods  made. He wants to give the people  of Enderby the best possible at a  reasonable cost to them and a reasonable profit to himself. Thereby,  one more store is added to the business end of Enderby. And so it  keeps going,    more    and more people  will be facts as found by over 500 of the leading   merchants and business  men in the West and Northwest.     The message they will bring 'will be of  personal interest to every man, woman and child in Enderby.     They will  show what will happen if we all continue to "Sin against our hometown.'  locating in Enderby and "more and  more business concerns investing  money in goods and in the present  and future prosperity of Enderby.  And so we have a city going forward of its own volition���������������������������building  itself up���������������������������getting more prosperous  and offering, more opportunities to  outsiders. This is what happens  when we are "helping forward our  home town." The local businessman  is patronized���������������������������he takes your dollar  and puts it in an Enderby bank. He  pays his rent with it to a local landlord���������������������������uses it in buying his personal  necessities and those of his family,  part of it goes for local amusements,  And so the dollar stays in Enderby,  and accomplishes a great deal toward  or invests it in a lot for his home,  the building of Enderby. One can  easily see by that dollar going out  of Enderby, a good many things  would NOT happen���������������������������the landlord  might. NOT get all his rent���������������������������last  year's suit would have to do for this  year���������������������������the new addition to the home  would have to go, etc. All because  that dollar went out of Enderby  when it might have stayed at home.  'WEBSTER" DEFINES - SINNING AS  "VIOLATING   DUTY"  It is the duty of every man, woman  and child in    Enderby    to help build  up the city���������������������������to    make    it prosperous  and make it grow���������������������������to encourage outsiders to come   in.       When you send  east, or north    or   south or west to  "replenish   your    wardrobe"���������������������������to   purchase "new furniture for your home"  ���������������������������when you send your money to mailorder houses���������������������������do you realize that you  are     "sinning     against   your   home  town"���������������������������that you are "violating your  duty" to E'nderby ?       Well, you are.  You are laughing at your local merchants���������������������������prolonging    the needed municipal    improvements���������������������������decreasing    the  value of your own    property as well  as  that  of your neighbor���������������������������discouraging the most worthy efforts to cater  j to your every    wish���������������������������fooling yourself  ! by sending that dollar out of Ender-  | by.     It is   natural   for every person  living in   Enderby   to desire to purchase the best of all that makes life  ! worth    living.       From    a    personal  ' standpoint���������������������������clothing,      hats,      under-  ; wear,  food, confectionery and the in-  ' numerable  pleasures    and  recreations  so necessary   to   balance one's existence, i  Or, from your home standpoint,  timber, stone and cement to build  vour home    with���������������������������plumbing,  flooring,  moulding, etc., to finish it.off properly���������������������������furniture, appliances, furnishings to make living comfortable.  No one gainsays you this privilege  ���������������������������but would it not be better for you  to buy these things in Enderby if you  can supply your wants just as well  and at thc same price ? By doing  this-^by-kceping.'__that_7dollar in .Enderby you encourage the development  of the city of Enderby���������������������������your home  town.  By this action of yours in recognizing merit���������������������������you' -warrant the entrance of new industries, the expenditure of huge sums to start them.  Such improvements attract attention  to this city of yours���������������������������it attracts investments in its possibilities and ita  future probabilities. You are hurrying forward the time when Enderby  will come into its own���������������������������when its advantages will be recognized. By  keeping this dollar at home you are  helping yourself���������������������������the coming generation and the future recognition of  Enderby. We believe it is your duty  to give this subject serious consideration. We ourselves believe it is so  serious that we commend to your patient consideration the articles of  this series, which will contain the  experiences, ideas and suggestions of  over 500 merchants and businessmen  of the Northwest, as to what they  think the result will be when we are  no longer "Sinning Against Our  Home Town,"  i t������������������  $  Thursday, March 26, 1914  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  outtotstq  oeedD  for garden and farm ore best  for B.C. soil.

This he finds very encouraging. But  he is even more pleased with the  standard of efficiency which is everywhere being developed. This he accredits to the self-devotion and hard  work of the scout masters as well as  to a better understanding, on the  part of the commissioners, of the  aims and objects of the movement  and the methods by which they can  best be carried out. Experience has  taught them that the personal character, capacities and .sympathies of  the leader does much towards inciting in the boys a spirit' of chivalry,  resourcefulness, courage and obedience.'  To show what a factor the training  of the scout movement can come to  mean to the boy in the .direction of  his own better upbringing, the general quotes the excellent displays, exhibits and demonstrations given by"  the' boys at 'the' imperial scout exhibition and tally, held at Birmingham,  Eng., which was attended by 20,000  scouts from all parts of-Europe. This  exhibition was "significant by .reason'  of the fact that it is the first time  in history'that boys have'yoluntarily  banded together and '.worked for such  a "demonstration.  "/The-report contains "a..great deal  that is'encouraging" to'the efforts of  individual branches of the boy spoilt,  organization, j and,"- vwith the'proper  co-operation of the .education nudior-  ities, .there, is every' reason ito.l-e-.  lieve {that the} whole'"movement is/one  channel  Mr! W. A. Russell returned from a  trip to Radcliffe, Alta., this week..  He reports that throughout the  northwest, he noticed a general revival in all lines of business, and  particularly in building operations,  active-and in prospective. Every  freight train from the west carries a  large per centage of cars loaded with  lumber, he says, and building activity is on the jump.  Mr. Russell reports the number of  immigrants from the states is this  season quite up to that of past years.  Forty carloads of settlers' effects  came into one of the towns he was  visiting in one day, and "this was only  the vanguard of what was to follow.  REUNION'OF OLD-TIMERS  The Okanagan Old Timers' Association of Vernon now is ambitious, and  aims to become, an organization embracing the entire Valley.- With this  object in view, a big reunuion dinner  will be held at Vernon in April to  which all eligible to membership will  be invited from the various towns.  Mayor Barnes has? been appointed to  gather in the pioneers of Enderby  district, and is prepared, to give full  information to .anyone desiring to  participate in the reunion dinner.'

Mrs. Gould soon became one of the most popular of the younger society women  of the' country and a leader in the world of fashion. Beautiful is the house in which ,  she lives, but far more beautiful is tlie atmosphere of love, sweetness and companionship that fills the home with sunshine and happiness. It is said that wealth oltcn  makes fair favorites of fortune forgetful of the privileges and joys of motherhood,  sacrificing on thc altar of fashion, time and attention that should be paid to loving  watchfulness of the welfare of the children; but Mrs. Gould is a model mother to  her six children, a devoted companion, confjflant and'friend. ..._'..  ��������������������������� Thc Goulds are practically the only members of the ultra-fashionable set who  reside in .the country tho year round: Georgian.

"My retort is," he Continued,  "that the basis   of the prosperity of  all great indurtries in the agricultural industry.     If the* Government acts  on the report    recently submitted by  the Royal Commission on Agriculture  , the condition of every farmer will be  bettered.     The commission has reco-  mend'e-d   that    the    Government loan  you cash individually, at low interest  and with long'   terms for repayment.  ;  New  Zealand    tried: the   plan,    and  loaned  $66,000,000   to farmers.     The  result has been that great prosperity  has come to New Zealand, and already  $23,000,000 of the money.has been; repaid.     There is no wiser policy 'than  to loan money to o'iir- farmers in; order that   our   production may be- increased.
