Word from the front this week is of a more I and his ships at Heligoland, when in thc dead of  encouraging nature! Thc reverses last week reported by the Allies, pointed to thc fact that.the  magnitude of the operations planned by the  German commanders had been under-estimated  by the Allies, with the,result that in the first  great battle they were driven to cover. But that  the Allies were able to cpuick'ly get into position  to so effectually check the forward march of the  German invasion, shows conclusively that they  were* not beaten. While up to the time of writing  the Allies have not succeeded in disorganizing  the German army, or gaining any material advantage, tlicy have regained the confidence lost  iii lost week's reverses, and .there is every .indication that-the.

Last evening Dr. Spencer  addressed an audience in the Methodist Church, where he gave a very  interesting talk on the work of the  college and ils many advantages, all  of which are open to Okanagan  young men and women, close at  home and at much less cost than in  the colleges at the coast.  The money-getting sale inaugurated last Saturday by the Murrin  Hardware Company and Messrs.  Poison, Murrin & Speers, under the  management of N. C. McLean & Co.,  Vancouver, bad one of the best  first-day openings ever experienced  in Enderby sales. Thc stores were  crowded throughout the afternoon  and evening and buying was brisk  in all lines. The goods are going  at rock-bottom prices, and thc people of Enderby and district arc  apparently determined not to miss  a good thing even if thc war is on.  The buying this .week continues  good, particularly at the auction  sales, which are held Tuesdays,  Thursdays and Saturdays, afternoon and evening.  A meeting of the executive of the  Enderby Agricultural & HorticiiJ-  tural'Society was held in the'City  Hall Monday evening, to consider a  letter received from the Deputy  Minister of Agriculture suggesting  the abandonment of the annual fall  show this year, owing to the general unsettled condition of affairs.  As the society had.not proceeded  far in the matter, the suggestion of  abandonment of the show was accepted, and the show will not be  held on September 12th as was  originally intended. The garden  competition will be continued and  prizes awarded at the conclusion of  the judging this month, when a general meeting of the socicly will be  held and the season's business  wound up.  LAST BULLETIN FROM FRONT  The curtain drawn by, the War  Ollice shulting'off airnews'from the  front, has not been raised since thc  great battle in Northern* France began, a week or two ago.  Virtuallyjio details have been given  wrth=e_past_\Veelc lt-is~ap"p~aren'7Ttlfeir  however, that the Allies and the  Germans are engaged in a death  struggle   far   overshadowing   any  *  T f  the British public days after.it has  been, circulated on the Continent''  and the absence of all information'  give rise to the' wildest' rumors,  which fly all over the country,'  causing alarm and anxiety.. .  "The' French   people   arc   givenk  more information of the doings of_  1roo"ps~~=nand:���������������������������ours"*-antrr  whilc  in    Germany   lhe   press  is  under an iron' heel, it gives more  hin'g of the kind in the world's history. The German troops were only  40 miles from Paris in the brief  despatches from the front on Tuesday, and the capitol of France was  being prepared to withstand the onslaught of thc German forces.  .In thc fighting of the past three  days thc British troops have had to  bear the brunt of it. While they  have-steadily fallen back, their lines  have never been broken, and their  fortitude is referred lo as something  that will live in history.  The Russian troops are pressing  forward toward Berlin, in Eastern  Prussia, and are meeting heavy bp-  psilion from the. Germans and  Austrians.  It is reported that Turkey is  about to declare war against Greece,  which means lhat she will enter the  field against the Allies.  Since Japan signified her determination to take Tsing Tau, the reports from thai quarter throw is  little light on what is being done as  the reports from the French capitol.  OBJECTING TO THE CENSOR  So strict and apparently unreasonable has become the censorship of the "���������������������������British War Oflice, that  the newspapers have come oul  strongly against it. The Daily  Chronicle of London, says:  "The censorship as set up by the  naval   and   military   authorities   is  gi ves  oflicial news than is accorded to the  English public and lists of casualties arc issued promptly."  The Daily Graphic views thc censorship from-another point, ft says:  "The dangers of the present policy of concealment are very grave  indeed, because il creates throughout the country the feeling of anxiety and suspicion. Englishmen are  nol used lo be treated as children  who cannot be trusted to know the  truth. When their government so.  treats them, Ihey naturally suspect  lhal the situation is much graver  than the government declares. This  argument applies solely to cases  where lhe enemy knows the facts  and we are not: permitted to know  Ihem."        .

Let no talk ol' thc early conclusion of the war lead you to extravagance or  iiKlill'ercncc at this time. Nor let any pessimist  persuade you to believe that things arc going to  lhc bow-wows. There is no possibility oi" thc  war being quickly settled; neither is there any  probability of there being any serious sutiering  in any part of Canada, if all people will start at  once lo conserve in every way possible. We may  not like to.   It mav come hard.     But wc MUST.  At the same lime wc must do our part in the  movement known as the Canadian Patriotic Fund  recently inaugurated. Enderby people arc just  as liberal hearted as lhc people of any other part  of Canada. No doubt Ihcy will have some home  charily lo look after this winter. But this fact  should not deter anyone from contributing their  mile in aid of lhis fund. It may not be much  lhal wc can give individually but every mile added lo thc whole will soon mount up. Thc following message will explain the objects of lhis  Patriotic Fund:  "In response lo urgent appeals from many parts of  tbe Dominion I inaugurated tbe Canadian Patriotic  ��������������������������� !'l'inj,..J.bc._o_bjecL.oL__!_lu_'h_ Js   to .provide   for   tbe  The London Mail gives this peep into thc heart  of Britons, and if there is one inspiring thing  about lhis cruel war it is this reflection of lhc true  British spirit:  "There is no more ma.Hcl.ing. A new metal has  come into lhe London crowd oul of the crucible of  these lasl few days. The-froth and fume of flag-wagging have vanished, so, too, have lifted bone-quaking  mists of dread and suspense. Exultation and depression are alike unhealthy. It is good that we are now  free from Ihem.  "Thc faces in thc street arc the barometers of lhe  souls that men hide. It does one's heart good lo walk  London and to behold that very notable rise���������������������������apparent to everyone and swift in its example���������������������������of the mercury of Ihe people. Thc great war took all our apprehensions unawares. Although it has boded for years,  il walked at last like an unbelievable spectre into a  warm and lighted room. What wonder that we were  shaken? "What wonder at a creeping ague of the spirit  in fronl of thc unknown?  "The dizziness has gone. The trial before us, black  as il is, is not so black as our anticipation of il. We  have already surprised ourselves no less than we have  confounded our enemies by our rally and our readiness. The financial situation is saved, the banks reopen, the food supplies are safeguarded, thc food  prices controlled.  "Hardship has a pleasanter face when looked on  squarely. Thc sane and the thoughtful have already  realised thai there may be a long path whereon-we  must endure. The sooner the senseless and the selfish  come to that same realization thc better for "themselves and for all of us. Life is going to be different  ���������������������������it has got to be different. There is already such a  sobering of minds thai fopperies and ostentations have  almost disappeared from the streets. Wc may still  laugh bravely, and thc wayfarer will kindle to us, but  coarse and vacant hilarity so rasps on what.is on our  minds that a scowl is its public rebuke.  "The women, upon whom the sorrows'of war must  fall heaviest, arc manifesting the same heroic temper.  By common consent they have discarded everything  that savours of display. They, have put on the sober  garb that is suited to these limes when .the-nation's  sons are facing the enemy, in the North Sea and. preparing to meet the German armies on the Continent.  They have returned to the rule of the simple life; they  have sacrificed their luxuries, and they arc sparing  and saving, knowing what immense pecuniary demands have to be met. The rich are coming generously lo Ihe aid of the" poor; lhe poor display a magnificent spirit. There are no whimperings, no repin-  ings, as there are no foolish vauntings and boasls."

Until some definite organization has been  formed in Enderby lo handle this mailer in conjunction wilh lhe Dominion organization, thc  "Press has .seen lhe managers of lhe Bank of Montreal and lhe Union Bank of Canada, and bolh of  these gentlemen have signified the readiness of  these bunks lo accept any moneys intended for  It is not often that a newspaper publisher finds  it necessary lo go to court to get a settlement, and  particularly against thc merchants of his home  town, and more particularly against an organization of the merchants of which thc publisher  himself was. a member. But this was thc awkward position of lhc Press thc past week. Bul  for thc fact that our position has been misrepresented and peddled about the street, the matter  would not be referred to here, for if there is one  ilhing"moTC=lhairanolhcr_lhat=ra"i)ublishcr=(lislikes  it; is. publicity/ However, we do not propose to  be misrepresented nor lo be misunderstood.  Therefore a 1'cav words'by way';of."explanation  may not be amiss. In the first place there is a  man by the name of Davies who has publicly  slated lhat he is determined lo make the. Press  lose lhc -magnificent sum of $50 per week, or  some sum equally munificent, because the Press  fr-is hlitftHe^  lillle games of politics. Mr. Davics has had several imaginary complaints against the Press, the  principal one being lhal we would nol conduct  our business and shape our policy'lo suit him, all  of which is interesting lo look back upon, but can  be of no interest to lhe reader.  The threat Mr.Davies has so earnestly made has  nol been taken seriously by lhe Press, for thc  reason that'll is prelly hard to lose something one  does not happen lo have. However, this man  Davics is a barrisler, and knows a little about  law. He also has a penchant for secretaryships.  He is secretary of lhc Board of School Trustees,  lhe Enderby Growers' Association,' thc Enderby  District Conservative Association and tlie Enderby Piet-til Merchanls' Association. Now it is impossible for a man as prominent in law as Mr.  Davics to handle so'many secretaryships successfully. As a result, some of these institutions have had to suffer. Not because of lhc  secretary, perhaps, bul for various reasons. And  so, after waiting a year for a settlement of the  account by lhc merchants' association, the Press  placed lhe account in the hands of A. C. Skaling  for collection. For I wo months Mr. Skaling  attempted to make collection. Funds were on  hand, but thc secretary did not feel disposed to  pay the account. Promises were made lhat a  meeting of lhc merchants' association would be  held, but these promises were never kept. Finally  a definite date was set when some action would  have to be taken or the matter would-be-put in  court. No meeting, was called, and no action  laken. Summonses were then issued.;...;The-Retail'Merchants' Association nol being an incorporated body, thc merchants individually had to be  summonsed. This fact was played upon and an  effort made to bring about friction between the  merchants and the Press.

Potato Growing at a Profit in
Relation to Alcohol Manufacture
Those of us who have been
moving for the past ten years
for the development of industrial alcohol, welcome the support you are giving to' the subject, and are glad that motor
manufacturers have taken up a
different position from that
which they held in 1905, when
the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders discussed the
Report of the Departmental Committee on Industrial Alcohol; and,
as a result of their expressions,
greatly hindered progress which
would have been made, both in
respect to the production of alcohol and engines most suitable
for using alcohol. Enclosed is a
copy of Dr. Ormandy's paper advocating the adoption of alcohol,
with the discussion, which was
mainly in opposition to ii.
Probably the public would the
more readily subscribe to the
proposed fund did it recognize
that by developing potato-growing for producing industrial alcohol not only would a cheap
source of enargy be provided,
but such a supply of food would
be available in time of war that
it would be impossible to starve
out this country. At the request
of the chairman of the Commission on.the Supply of Food in
Time of War I supplied him with
data showing how this could be,
done; the opposition of the motor
makers at that time against . the
use of alcohol, however, ruled
this out.   '
In the-. "Nineteenth- Century
Magazine" of July,. 1913,   in
article on ".The Greater -Agricul
tural, ";as an;; extensive,,, grower:
of potatoes" for ~ many J years,' ;I:
pointed out as a- farmer^ how,;' a
system of croppingcould-be/arranged jwhich  would. - produce
potatoes profitably  for. making
alcohol. This involves a-rotation
including the growing  of beet
for' sugar-making.   Under, p'rer
sent conditions of farming the inducements for farmers to grow
beet or potatoes casually for industrial purposes are not very attractive.   With both grown. in a
systematic rotation .the position
is  totally  changed.     Moreover
this can be done without great
disturbance in farm management.
Further, the cost of hauling  to
factories, the treatment  in factories, &c, would be greatly re-
duced.   As I treated the  whole
question fully in the article  re-
fered to, there is no need  to go
into the many details involved;
but.myyobject in _writing_npw_ jte
to impress on those who may interest themselves in the  subject
that a far broader treatment of
the matter   must be  followed
than has been put into force in
regard to  beet  growing.   They
must learn to think in  millions,
or at any rate, to recognize  that
it is a * subject  that can  affect
millions of acres of land.--
' In the past few  years  there
has been the vogue of advocacy
of the intensely  small  on  the
land���������and its influence has  not
been great���������it started on  paper,
and it remains there; hen-coops,
bee-hives, garden delicacies, and
the like do not materially affect
the nation's  agriculture.    This
concentrating on  small  matters
has had a cramping effect on the
public's ideas as to what is possible, and hinders it from seeing
what huge possibilities lie in the
potato, and beet.    Consequently,
when the potentialities  of  sawdust and other cellulose materials
are compared with potatoes that
many will leave out of  calculation  the  great, value  potatoes
possess alternatively as food, and
the safeguarding  they  give  in
time of war.   The splendid rural
industries that could  be  raised
around alcohol and sugar-making
cannot be equalled by  any  suggestions that have been made in
connection with rural  economy;
consequently it is in  every way
desirable    . that     development
should come in this direction. To
secure success,  however,   there
must be systematic growing of
the crops mentioned, because
casual cropping will be unpopular
with farmers and unsatisfactory
to manufacturers.��������� W. J. Maiden,
in the London Daily Telegraph.

All slalemenls of claim to -water  privileges on these respective  .streams, all objections thereto, and  the plans prepared for the use of  the Board will then be open i'or  inspection.

TROUBLE MAKING  ,1 Growing out of the little trouble  stirred up lhe past week by  the legal luminary and secretary  plenipotentiary of all and sundry,  the Press lhis week is minus two  ads which, in these war times, w;e  regret verv much. However, if  the worst comes to lhe worst, and  we have to print lhe Press on a  postage stamp, we will retain lhe  right to run our own business and  get whal wc have honestly earned,  even if we do have to go to court  ror it. The Press does not want  trouble; il is not going to have any  ! trouble. The Press carried lhc En-  derbv Retail Merchants' Association  account one whole year, rendering  a statement monthly, and only resorted lo the small debts court when  it became apparent lhal we were  being held up for personal reasons  on the part of one individual absolutely foreign to the question al  issue. The Retail Merchants' Association has as its cardinal principle  "short credits," and yet it permitted  its printing account, which was at  no'lime disputed, lo stand unpaid a  whole vear, and then, when the  matter has to be take lo court lo get  a settlement, some of these merchants are piqued and withdraw  their business.  We have no feeling in the matter  and recognize this is their privilege.  We have no intention of withdrawing from the position we have taken  and trust and believe that the whole  matter will simmer down to an insignificant 'bat' in the belfry of the  villiage trouble maker.  SHALL NOT BE MOLESTED  An extra of the Canadian Gazette  contains the following:  "And whereas there arc many immigrants of German nationality  quietly pursuing their usual avocations in various parts of Canada,  and it is desirable that such persons should continue in such avocations without interruption. Now,  know ve, that by and with the advice of Our Privy Council for Canada, we do by these presents proclaim and direct as follows:  "Such person's so long as they  quietly pursue their ordinary avocation shall nol be arrested, detained or interfered with, unless  there is reasonable ground to believe-lhal they, are engaged in acts  of a hostile nature, or to give information to thc enemy, or unless  thew otherwise contravene any law,  order in council or proclamation.  All German officers or reservists  attempting to leave Canada at any  port on the Atlantic or on the Pacific, shall dc arrested and detained."

Bell, who, as Mayor, piloted Enderby successfully through thc early  period of cilyhood, the following  remarks appear: ' ,  "Your recent editorials re. war  and our present condition and duly, I  are to the point. It is certainly a  time for every man, woman ahd  child to work" hard, and to study  economy, and to have faith, that  the Almighty will quickly lead the  nations out of the present awful  "hell" up unto the plains of permanent peace.  "As one still interested in the  Okanagan, I want to-add my support to Mayor Barnes and others,  who arc endeavoring to secure a  riding to be known as Northern  Okanagan. JTie district from Larkin to Tappen is all particularly  adapted for lumbering and mixed-  farming, and the member ���������������������������representing this district only, in the  Provincial Legislature, would be in  a position to emphasize the need of  mixed fanning and to assist same  more than if he represented a larger and more varied constituency.  "I hope the Government will  grant vour request, and if the Commission should sit here, I will wait  on the worthy judges and express  my opinion."
