McWHIRTER AT REST  past week, and the Company is now  prepared lo handle the business as  rapidly as it can be built up.  Thc New Year's dance given in  K. of P. Hall by the ladies of thc  Ambulance Leagc was one of the  big dance successes of thc season,  in attendance as well as enjoyment.  The Provincial Auditor is here  this week going through the city's  accounts with Cily Clerk Rosoman,  and the city's financial, .statement  should be in thc hands of the ratepayers within a few days.  After careful consideration of the  existing conditions and circumstances arising from the war, il has  been determined to indefinitely  postpone the annual convention of  the B. C. Conservative Association  for the year 1914-5.  At the regular meeting of the local  K. of P. lodge on Monday evening  the following officers were installed  for the ensuing term: C.C., R. H.

The Parish Hall was crowded to  the doors Tuesday evening by the  parents ancl children of St. George's  Sunday school to participate in and  enjoy the Christmas tree services  arranged by the teachers and Mrs.  Reed. The exercises were well  vgiven and heartily enjoyed, and the  . Every Slocanite of the early days  will remember Alec McWhirter, for  several years a- resident' of New  Denver, and later of Cherry Creek,  in "the Similkameen. "Alec was of  that trucrty.p'e of; Scotchmen, whose  whole: body^waf-ha:lariger:^than.his  heart; and--whose sense7of honor  was notrto be measured" by. green  backs and bawbees. He was as  true a type of the mining camp  pioneer as one could find anywhere,  and to be respected was but lo be  known. ,  After many-years of-hardship in  lone cabins in the hills, where for  weeks-at a time ih the winter season he never would see a fellow  man, and bacon and bannocks were  his only food, Mr. McWhirter, five  months ago, concluded to make his  home close up to tried and true  friends of earlier days. He bought  a small piece of ground from Wm.  Anderson, on the river just norlh of  Endcrby,=and=-there4heTfriends-and-  neighbors assisted'in the' erection  of a comfortable cabin for the old  gentleman, close by, where Mr. and  Mrs. Anderson could keep' an eye  upon him and help him in his need.  The cabin was completed in time  for him to be made comfortable before the cold of winter set in, and  here he was as snug as a bug  in a rug.  And this is Ihe irony of fate. On  Christmas day he was taken sick,  with one of those stomach troubles  he was subject to, and in a few days  they carried him oul of his cosy  cabin by the river to lhc graveyard  on the hill, and there his last resting place is marked by a mound of  newly-turned earth.  Anthony McWhirter enlisted for  the 74th regiment of Lancaster  volunteers on the 13th September,  1867, at the age of 18 years. He was  born in the parish of Dalrumplc, in  or near the town of Girvan. He  had no relativcs-in this country.  He served two years at Gibralter,  when he was injured and discharged. He worked a number of  years as game-keeper for the Earl  of Selkirk, and later for the big  Allan Company of brewers. He  came to Southern Manitoba in 1890  and two years later moved to New  Denver, where he remained until  1905, when he moved to Cherry  Creek, coming to Enderby thc past  summer.  There was a number of his old  friends at the grave, where Rev. Mr.  Dow read the simple burial service.  Il would seem from Petrograd  and other official- and semi-official  reports, thaj the Russians have been  al least partially victorious over the  Turks in the Caucasus campaign,  though Turkish reports claim that  Iheir troops have won over the  Russians. This much seems certain,  however, lhat several thousand Turkish troops were iriade prisoners by  the Russians, and the great battle,  is still going'on.    .

Rev. Mr.' Dow acted as chairman  of the evening, assisted by Mr. McPhcrson. Thc first number given  was ��������������������������� "Christmas Bells," by eight  lilllc girls, followed by a concert  recitation by 0������������������������������������������������������.small boys.

Then some little  girls gave the motion, song, "Little  Mothers," and three small boys with  minaturc snow shovels showed  how they shovel pathways through  the snow for mother. Little Vera  Sharpe followed with a recitation  that was cleverly given, and then  thc playlet "The Train lo Mauro,"  given by Mrs. McPherson, Master  Sparrow and John McPhcrson,  brought down the house. Margaret  Golightly gave a clever recitation,  and Rena Dill and Agnes Sparrow  sang in their quaint way "The Boola  Boola Man."  Thc "Hard Times March" which  followed, by boys of all sizes and  shapes and colors, captured the  big end of the applause of the evening.

'   ������������������  JANUARY 7, 1915  CENTRAL AGENCY POLICY FOR 1915  For lhc past few weeks there has been heard a  deal of criticism of thc operation of the Central  Selling Agency lor 1914. Manager Robertson has  come "in for much adverse comment, just or unjust. How much of this has been deserved and  how little will not be known until the* Selling  Agencv has made ils annual report, and even then  itVilf be difficult for anyone not in direct touch  wilh the business of the concern to-know where  thc fault, if anv. can be placed. This much is certain: When Mr. Robertson took up thc work ol  managing the Selling Agency, he look upon himself a very difficult task, and a thankless one. He  Avas as sure of criticism as he was of difficulties,  and no mailer what he did, no matter how cam-  cstlv he might strive lo make thc proposition a  success, he would be damned for his pains by  manv and praised by few. II is ever thus in the  initial slage of development of any proposition ol  this kind.\md there should not be any feeling ol  discouragement because of it. If it were nol Mr.  Robertson it would be somebody else who had Lo  bear it. Other districts have had Lo meet like  conditions,  and work  the harder  to  overcome  TIkmiiT "TlTe^OkTu^^ u H'rui t-  and produce growers cannot hope to do the impossible. IL look lhc orange growers of California  five or six vears to solve Iheir selling problems,  and thev had a much easier task to start upon  than lhal which lhc growers of lhc Okanagan  have had lo face. That Mr. Robertson will suc-  cessfullv overcome the obstacles we firmly believe  and he will, if he continues to hold thc confidence  -and Ihe-siipporl-or.Ihe-niajorilyolUhc^growers,  bring mailers Lo a successful issue. Here arc  lhe "five points of the Central Agency policy for  1915:  1. Earnest and immediate attempt lo line up  wilh the Uniled Growers-competitors in lhc valley  in the mailer of marketing, prices, etc.  2. Extend operations of express shipments lo  the retail trade.  'A. Failing lo line up with competitors then reduce terms1 to brokers. 11* both fail then attempt  lo go after thc retail trade and put on travellers.  4. Gel in touch with thc Grain Growers.  5. Give attention to question of by-products.  a live one and this  one.    11 can't be any  Be  dead  it, Mr. Businessman.  town will never be a  deader than we make  would reduce thc salary of Principal Calder to $75  a month,and the other school teachers to figures  proportionately lower. In this, too, Mr. Poison is  a bit previous in his remarks. Even if he were to  become Mayor oi* Enderby, he would not have  anything to say about the salaries of the school  teacher stall'. This rests entirely in thc hands of  the Board of School Trustees. All the Mayor  and aldermen have to do with it is to find the  money necessary lo pay the vouchers drawn by  the School Board.  In the mailer of City Clerk and City Constable,  Mr. Poison would find himself in a hornet's nest  if he were to attempt lo make the changes he has  intimated he would like to make. Mr. Poison is  not the first Johnnic-Comc-Latcly who has expressed similar ambitions. But Mr. Poison musI  undcrsUmd lhat the ratepayers of Enderby are  belter acquainted with the present City Clerk and  lhe present Cily Constable than they arc with Mr.  Poison���������������������������and a heap more familiar with their  method of doing things', than'���������������������������with his. And when  Mr. Poison attempts to make selfish interest paramount, and the cily's business subservient to  private business, he will discover that the ratepayers will have something to say that might  .put .a crimp in his ambitions.  Mr. Rosoman has been City Clerk irom the  date of Enderby's inception. He has buildcd thc  city's business firmly upon a solid basis, and his  long experience in clerical work has enabled him  lo put the city's business on a basis lliat has won  high praise from thc Provincial auditors who  have annually gone ovcrhis records and approved  his system. No doubt, in Mr. Poison's varied experience, he has discovered a number of shortcuts in municipal accounting that he would be delighted to experiment with at Enderby's expense,  but, particularly at this period, would it be disastrous for Enderby to give him lhe opportunity.  Municipal business and'speculation arc quite  distinct propositions. They will not mix. Thc  first is a business of safe-guards, and the other a  business devoid of safe-guards. Experience in thc  latter docs not develop in one lhc capacity for  handling successfully the former.  Mr. Poison has had much to complain of in  Constable Bailey. Principally because Constable  Bailey has shown a fearless desire to do his duty.  Mr. Poison has shown a penchant for breaking  the bike by-law, in riding on thc sidewalks, and  because the Constable has made him recognize thc  by-law and comply wilh its demands, thc seeker  .after thc mayoralty has sworn to use the guillotine on thc Constable. But he Avill not .get thc  chance.  Don't -woltv about thc latest and newest tango  step, but keep your eye upon the front-ones to  vour home.  A FALSE NOTION  If anyone has deluded himself into believing  thai this war is a war on militarism, and lhat  when it is over there will be disarmament and  pcrcpetual peace, let him awaken from the delusion. We have been told lhat it is a war on thc  militarism of thc war lord of Europe, and so it is.  Bul it is not a war on militarism���������������������������the militarism  of Great Britain, of France, of Russia. This is  becoming more apparent every day. The London  Post, commenting on the day of prayer set by thc  King for thc success of the British arms, gave the  clergy the text "pray devoutly and hammer  away stoutly." Thc Post especially discredits the  common saying that the object of this war it to  destroy militarism, and concludes:  ^^lfUhe^British^s\ier-Cu.to^use^.victorv.io ..this end  Ihcn victory would only  lion in lhc next war  mean our utter deslruc-  Thc Israelites of old who,  wc may suppose, objccled to thc cost of armaments, were always speaking of turning spears  inlo ploughshares. The result of their pacific  policy is that they arc now.without any land of  their own to plough,"and forever doomed to be  wanderers and exiles on the face of the earth."  ONE FOR: THE MOVIES  Some, fifty-three saloons failed in Brooklyn,  N. Y., last year. The ratio of the number of  moving picture shows opening in Brooklyn during lhc same period was twice that number. II  would seem from lhis thai lhc popularity of thc  saloon is on the wane, and lhal thc moving picture  shows arc coming into greater favor. No longer,  in Brooklyn, at least, is the saloon considered the  poor man's club. His place of rendezvous has  changed. Science i.s thus assisting to make the  race a more temperate one. And the method by  which it acts is the only true method���������������������������by subsli  luting something belter for the thing it is desirable lo displace.

AT THE ENDERBY RINK  The curling club members have  had a week of schedule games, with  favorable i weather -conditions and  intense interest on the "part of, the  players., In the*first.draw some of  the weaker rinks have been pitted  against the'stronger, arid the scores  have beenygreatly one-sided, yet the  interest:of the losers has been as  keen asthat of the winners, and the  best of; spirit prevails.  ,  Three of- the rinks^ drawn this  season are much stronger than those  of previous se^sbns'T. andr there" is  sure to be some "roar" in the.roarin'  game before the spring thaw turns  the \ ice into water.

What he does after the fifth year depends upon circumstances���������������������������and thc  ice.  Here arc some general rules laid  down by the Royal Caledonian Curling Club of Edinburgh, the recognized mother-club and legislative  body for curling of the world:  Never count an "end" until 16  stones are thrown.  No stone shall be changed after  a match has begun, unless by Common consent.  Should a stone be. broken, the  largest part ol jt shall be counted in  the game until the end is counted,  after which the player may change  for another stone or another pair.  Should the handle quit the stone  on delivery, the player must hold  fast to the handle or he shall not be  entitled to another throw.  No player shall be allowed to  cross over from'one side pf the ice  to the other under any pretense  whatever, after a'player has taken  his position at the hack, and no  player but the skips in charge of the  rinks playing shall be permitted in  the rings or behind the "hog" line.  If a running stone be marred by  any of the party to which it belongs  it. may be put off the ice by. thc skip  of'the opposite rink, and if; interfered with, by' any of the opposite  rink while in motion it may be  placed in any position the skip to  which it belongs.desires.-  Skips shall have exclusive right  to play last stone, first stone, or in  whatever position-they choose, and  may name any one of'the rink captained by theni to take charge for  them..'" --' ''.-���������������������������-'- ,_ .-" '.-S ~ : ���������������������������  If any party shall taunt, interrupt  or-fotherwise~ interfere .with another  player not of hisrink while in the  act'of throwing a stone," one,point  maS"be counted' by,'.the"party so interfered with., ,7 -.j.,;_-.-,     ,7  PEACE BEFORE A YEAR  . The "German    Crown   Prince, is  quoted   as   saying:   "Undoubtedly  this-is the most .stupid, senseless,  unnecessary war of mo'dcrn times."  Undoubtedly every one.of the belig-  erents will agree with him in that  ���������������������������each,  however,  claiming,  as  he  docs, "that somebody else was, responsible for it.    Undoubtedly this  war has sickened the whole world,  including those engaged in it, as no  other war ever did.  '  There, are differences of opinion  as to who is responsible, but the reaction  of  civilized  men   from   its  monstrous  cruelties  and  waste  is  almost universal.   So we do not be-  the question, How did Germany  succeed in so effectually preparing  for this mighty campaign, and how  does she manage lo keep up her  supply of munitions of war against  such great odds. The answer is to  be found in thc latest report of the  chamber of commerce in Germany  relating to thc Krupp works, that  great war factory at Essen at-which  thc allied armies are preparing to  drive as soon as they can move upon it. From this report it is learned  that in thc business year 1912-13  the Essen cast steel works contained  about 8,500 machine tools, 12 rolling  mills, 104 steam hammers, 122 hydraulic presses, 439 steam boilers,  534 power engines aggregating 77,-  000 horse power, 3,600 electric motors of together 68,000'hbrse power,  and 1,259 cranes, etc, having a total  carrying capacity of i2,800,000  kilogrammes.   .  ��������������������������� The firm's own coal mines produced 2,903,000 tons of coal. Of  this quantity the Essen cast steel  works alone consumed'some 1,000,-  000 tons, while the total consumption of the -various Krupp works  amounted to 1,530,000 tons of coal,  1,558,000 tons of coke, and 40,800  tons of briquettes..  On Jan. 1, 1913, the total number  of persons employed by the firm of  Krupp was 76,647. ���������������������������  CITY OF ENDERBY  Municipal Elections' Act, 1908, and  shall state thc names, residence,  and occupation or description of  each person proposed, in such manner as sufficiently to identify such  candidate; and in the event of a  poll being necessary, such poll will  be opened on Thursday, the 14th  day of January, 1915, at the City  Hall, Enderby, of which every person is required to lake notice and  govern himself accordingly.

W E S T 'S  Ladies' and  Gents'  Tailor  Enderby  rived yet, and to tell of all they can  do might lead to some admisions  which wo.uld be embarrassing.  Curling is a great game. It is  usually played with a wee nip o",  Johnnie Walker under the wistcoal,  ���������������������������but not always. It is a great game.  Sometimes it is the ice an' sometimes th' skip that makes the cur-r-1-  crs shoot wide o' the mark. Often  it is both. When thc player gets a  wee bit 'narrer' then it's the ice, and  when he gets 'away wide' then it's  thc ice, too. And when he is "hog  short," it's something under the  shine, and when he puts the stone  through the house, his fool slipped  out o' the hack and the whole  thing is laid upon the man taking  care of the ice and the weather  clerk.  Curling is a game that thc new  beginner learns very quickly. As  soon as he has played three ends he  can tell you all aboul it. At the end  of the first season he could shut his  eyes and beat the skip drawing to  the "T." The second year he begins to get his eyes opened. The  third year he begins to distinguish  between what is curling and shooting the' stanes down the ice. The  fourth year it dawns upon him that  C*W-**t>*+~4)*+  Royalite Coal Oil in bulk;  3 gals, for $1.00.

No matter  what the fortunes of battle arc, a  cumulative load of disgust and abhorrence, and a steadily increasing  economic pressure will stop it.

McKcnzie, in the Vancouver-  Province, cabling from London,  says: "England has entered on the  New'Year, in a spirit of grim resolution. The first flush of enthusiastic  confidence in a..quick victory is  gone, and men are realizing thai this  is a fiercer, harder, longer business  [ban at first believed. The nation is  now admitting lhe possibility of Ihe  aerial bombardment of our cities  and of attempts.iwinvade our coasts  German mine fields and high freight  rales have given some anxiety over  the food supply, and military experts, who earlier expected that the  Germans would be expelled from  Belgium by .March, now maintain  lhal this will require a summer campaign. There is scarcely one county family but has some relations  among the dead or wounded. These  darker aspects are being faced and  not ignored. Every precaution is  being made for a continental campaign in the spring, which will astonish humanity, and is Hearing  completion, particularly in armaments. The Territorials and Empire troops, who arc now relieving  worn regiments al the front, arouse  the greatest admiration.' "They and  Kitchener's army arc thc finest forces England ever had," say veteran  generals.  The national spirit may be best  illustrated by thc example of two retired admirals, one seventy years  old, who, being beyond thc age for  regular duty, have undertaken mine'  sweeping in the North Sea, thc most  trying, dangerous ancl disagreeable  work sailors know. There is no  weakening here, but a tight setting  of the teeth for a task demanding  all our strength."  MORE MEN WANTED  "Men arc ever ready to help others  inlo liberty, but never ready to  help themselves.  London ��������������������������� There arc increasing  indications, in the opinion of British observers of events on the continent, that a serious allied advance  against the whole German line in  the western arena of the war; will  be postponed. until such time as  larger contingents of Kitchener's  new army lake lhe field. The? losses  of the allies sustained up lo the  present time in tentative thrusts  here and there have been heavy in  proportion lo lhe gains achieved,  and it is understood that the various  leaders unite in the opinion that lhe.  sacrifices entailed by a general advance at lhis time would be loo  great.  The turn of events in the eastern  theatre of hostilities where Russia  appears .lo be more than holding her  own, necessitates, nevertheless, continued hard pressure againsl the  German lines in thc west to prevent  them moving any more of their  troops to the eastern field.  In the west thc lown of La Basse,  slill held by the Germans, is proving  lo be one of the hardest problems  thc allied forces have lo solve. The  invaders have thrown up exceptionally strong earthworks around  LaBasse and have two army corps  quartered in the city. To lake this  stronghold by direct assault would  mean a terrible loss of life, but its  taking i.s essential to any concerted  move forward in order to afford  protection lo he communications of  the Allies.
