JANUARY 21, 1915  AN UNWELCOME SURPRISE  CENTRALIZED CREAMERY WANTED  Election day is over. To say lhat the outcome  ol* lhc mayoralty coniesL was -what���������������������������-.���������������������������'was looked  for and nol disappointing Lo fully half the electors  would he'-absurd.' Few believed the tactics followed by Mr. Poison and his followers -..-would be  successful. Never in Enderby's history have  such open violations of the Elections Act been  charged���������������������������unintentional, perhaps, but n6ne: the  less flagrant. There has been a strong* disposition to protest tlie election ol" Mr. Poison on these  grounds, bub Mr. Murphy would not listen to it,  believing: that such a step would not be worth the  candle. Mr. Poison will be given the support oT  all, insofar as his administration is carried on in  lhe public interest.  In a mixup such as the one we have just passed  through almost anything is liable to happen, but  the electors of Enderby did not lose their heads,  and out of il all there was chosen a level-headed  aldermanic board. Fortunately Alderman Dill  was re-elected, also Alderman Grant, and cx-  Aldermcn Sharpe and Harlry. The only member  elected on the council without aldermanic ex-  perieince was Mr. A. A. Faulkner, and hc is a man  quick lo grasp the situation and can be depended  upon to safeguard the city's interests and prevent  undue interference wilh the operation ol" thc  municipal machinery and established procedure  in thc handling of public business.  One ol* thc promises made by Mr. Poison to the  holders of properly in his sub-division was that  hc would immediately put city water on lhc  property and open thc streets and lay sidewalks.  These promises succeeded in throwing to him the  solid support of these properly holders.  In lhis connection it should be stated thai thc  City Council two years ago decided to lay water  on this sub-division, and thc pipe and other material was ordered lo proceed wilh thc work. But  when the land registry ollice refused lo register  thc 'map of the sub-division the work was nol  proceeded wilh. Aud thc properly stands today  as it did then���������������������������not registered and without city  water and electric lights. Every citizen realizes  lhat these property holders are entitled to bolh  these conveniences, but it is legally impossible for  Ihem lo get these conveniences until the map of  thc sub-division is. duly registered. And Mr.  Poison as mayor will be as powerless to ovcrrdc  the law as he was as private citizen.  Disappointing as it was, Mr. Poison's election  as mayor will "result in ultimate good. In less  lhan three months lime hc will have learned  things about civic business that he docs not now  know, and he will be called upon lo answer many  charges that lie himself has made against his predecessors, who have endeavored in lhe past as  faithfully as he can in thc future, to solve thc  problems of lower taxation, cheaper this and  cheaper that.  Thc ensuing year is certain to be one of little  civic development.    The cily cannot do public  work without money.   The only way the cily can  -get, mongy [or public improvements is through  the paymeVfof^  issuance of debentures and borrowing thereon.  Taxes have come in slowly the,past season and  it is "nol likely that the revenue for 1915 will be  any greater than that of 1914, and, as for borrowing by the issuance of debentures, il is not probable the cily could il" it would, nor would thc ratepayers sanction such a thing at this time. .-.Therefore, the only thing the municipality can do is to  ���������������������������siI light an(Fliold-a-sl'eiKl>MiaiKl-a'ii(14iglil--rein'.--l-  Matfers are not so bad. They could be a great  deal worse. While thc ciLy's hands arc lied and  public work is out of the question, there is at thc  same lime every opportunity tor the exercise ol*  redoubled individual efl'orl.* And by concerted  action in Hi Is* direction���������������������������every properly owner  doing his part in lhe way ol improvement���������������������������we  could yet make 191") a year of big little things  which *in the aggregate would mark a very important step forward, and in the lina  up would make us all the richer.  The defeat of Miss Forster as school trustee by  six votes is lo be regretted, although Mr. Hawkins  ���������������������������the successful candidate���������������������������will make a painstaking, intelligent ollicer. Thc. idea of having a  woman on the school board was a new one to  many and not fully comprehended. There is a  tendency on the part of many lo keep women out  of public- ollice as long as possible. But the idea  of a woman on the school board is not new. Thc  practice has been followed generally throughout  Canada in recent years, with the best of results,  and, once tried, the people have shown no desire  to go back lo the obsolete system of a woman less  Board of School Trustees.  summing  The world is full of people as good and as bad  as yourself���������������������������brace up!  As in olher years, slay on thc waler wagon.  From all parts of the Okanagan there comes an  insistent demand for creameries. The discussion  so far has been more or less indefinite, as to plan,  but there is no mistaking the demand. It was  ever thus. When thc pinch of hard times comes'  and there is of necessity a general readjustment  of conditions to get away from the things that  live and prosper only on the prosperity of the  country, man gets back to the cow and thinks she  is a-pretty good friend after all���������������������������a friend that  never failelh ancl is kind. This tendency of the  farmers and fruit growers of the Okanagan is  one of thc best signs of thc times. It means that  an end has come to velvet-hand farming in the  Valley. It is most important that the movement  be fostered and encouraged by the Government.  When wc consider what has been done by the  Danes by thc development of this branch of  farming���������������������������dairying, chickens and hogs, for they  all must go hand in hand���������������������������il is sate to conclude  that when our small land holders get back to  studying thc cow they arc on thc right track.  All co-operative dairying in its various forms,  ���������������������������In/-New Zealand, Ireland, Germany, Australia���������������������������  no matter where, has had its root in. thc Danish  model. When the Danes want to form a dairy  the small working farmers of a district register  a society and take up shares of $5 each, in proportion to the number of cows. Each brings his  milk lo be separated, is paid for thc butter-  making materials it contains, and receives back  skim milk, which goes to thc chickens and pigs.  If any profit is divided, it belongs nine-tenths to  thc suppliers of milk in proportion to thc value  of their supplies, and one-tenth to thc dairy employees as dividend on wages in pursuance of the  co-partnership principle. Thc co-operative  dairies of Ireland, which arc based on thc Danish  model, produce butler worth more (than five  million dollars annually.  In Denmark there arc more lhan 1,000 of these  co-operative villiage dairies of from 400 lo 2000  conns each.- More ban four-fifths of all thc milk  of Denmark is used in them, and Ihcy produce  butter worth more than fifty millions annually,^  besides thc millions that come from thc side:  lines, pigs and chickens. Taken as a whole, the  elf eel of this agricultural co-operation in Denmark has amounted to little less lhan a revolution. 11 has brought thc results of science within  the peasant's reach, and he.has been quick to  avail himself of Ihem; il has transformed a great  part of farm work into a factory industry, increasing the yield of thc soil, improving thc ma-.  tcrial position of lhc peasants, and drawing rich  and poor together. Denmark, once so poor, is  now, except England, probably,thc richest counlry in Europe in proportion to its population.  From this il would seem lhat the principle for  thc small farmers of. thc Okanagan lo adopt is  along" the Danish model. And, yet, il must be  remembered that the Danes arc Danes, and where  all arc of thc same blood and native inclination  the ties of co-operation bind them far more  closely lhan''they would if they were of various  nationalities and inclinations, and that what may  operate must successfully there would fail here,  where wc have so many nationalities and dispositions to work with. Nor have wc now the time  to work out something along the line of Danish  co-operation. The small farmers and fruit men  need something lhal will give immediate relief.  Wc have talked thc matter over with several  farmers in this district. The proposition lhat  seems lo have the most to recommend it is for  thc Provincial Department of Agriculture to establish, under government control, a centralized  creameuy,-jnsLonc-iii^theJS[allcv,.say.at the.most  central point���������������������������Vernon���������������������������and to buy the cream  outright from all offering. Thc establishing of  such a plant would require but a small outlay of  capital and little time, and, if placed in experienced hands, could be'made an immediate success. This would make unnecessary the long and  dillicult period of experimental co-operation such  as the Valley has had to sutler from these past  few years. Co-operation is the only system that  wilfniaXe jic^sible^^  arc loo many obstacles to overcome to permit thc  trying out al this critical period. The,conditions  of the farmers of thc Valley at the present time  will not permit any experimenting. This can  come when thc proposition has been worked out  and placed upon its feet by an experienced hand  under Government control.  We believe nolhing but failure would come to  any movement looking lo thc organization of the  various districts under Danish co-operative lines  or any olher co-operative lines. A creamery, if  established at all, must be under Government  control and must pay cash for the cream as it is  received. Any other system, attempted at this  lime, would surely pile more upon the small land  holders without offering a solution of his difficulties. Whereas, the establishment of a centralized creamery under Government control would  at once offer thc small farmer a ready market for  his cream at a cash price. The rest would be  easy. Wilh cash for his cream, there would follow the development of the sidelines���������������������������hogs and  poultry. Thus would be solved, in a very large  measure al least, the problem that is confronting  thc small farmer, and must eventually be met by  the Government.

J. B. GAVLORD,  Treas.  .���������������������������; A silly story-was circulated in the  Municipal campaign which we have  been asked lo explain. Some one  wiser than anyone else told how,  two years ago, the City Council  recommended the appointment to  thc office of police magistrate in the  place of Mr. Rosoman/ the name of  Mr. S. Teece, and the said name was  sent in to the Attorney-General's  Department, but the said appointment was not made, and, thc story  goes, the appointment was not made  because Mr. Teece was a Liberal.  And, it is declared by Liberal local  leaders, that this was an infringement, and thc working of politics  against the city's interest. All of  which would be justifiable if the  facts were true. But the facts have  been woefully distorted.  The City Council did ask for the  appointment of Mr. Teece to the  magistracy, but thc question of politics never was raised. In fact, Mr.  Ruttan, then Mayor, was president  of the Conservative Association, and  it was he who made the trip lo Victoria lo insist on the appointment of  Mr. Teece.  Thc position taken by the Attor-  ,ney-GeneraIis lhis: that, in the interest of justice he must hold the appointment of magistrates, free from  petty local issues and not subject to  lhe dictation of ever-changing municipal councils. To do this would  make the office purely one of politics and subject to the whims of -  each succeeding mayor and council,, and lhc administration of justice, so far as thc police magistrates  are concerned would soon become  a farce.  At the last municipal convention  at Kamloops lhis question came up  for discussion before the committee  on resolutions. It was introduced  by Kamloops, where an effort had  been made by thc cily council to  have the cily clerk made magistrate  as we have it in Enderby. But tlie  Attorney-General here again de:  clihed fo consider the* recommendation; on the same grounds as have  been, staled. On the. resolutions  committee, were four mayors, .and,  men well acquainted with the requirements of municipal business,  and this committee refused unanimously to consider the complaint  from Kamloops and endorsed the  sland taken by thc Attorney-General's Department.  British Columbia farmers enjoy  an equable year-round climate. No  extremes of either cold or heat.  Good roads and good schools.  British Columbia is particularly  well adapted to mixed farming.  British Columbia has wide areas  suitable in every respect for cattle-  grazing, horse-raising, and sheep-  ranching.  British Columbia's Department of  Agriculture spends many hundreds  of thousands of dollars annually for  the. farmers and fruit-growers.

British'Columbia's fertile virgin  soils yield heavy crop's..,   #t|1  British Columbia has irrigated  and non-irrigated lands for the farmer, as well as pre-emption and  homestead lands.  E. P. Winslow, superintendent of  Northwest branches of the Bank of  Montreal, in an interview at Winnipeg a few* days ago said:  "The outlook of our farmers in  the  Prairie  Provinces at the present time is, I believe, better 'than  il has ever been in the history of  this country.   This outlook has improved because the farmer is not  thinking  of  the   present, time   of  selling or speculation, but is devoting  his  entire  and  undivided  attention- to   the   work   of   making  money from the cultivation of the  soil.      During the past two.years  the farmers have reduced their old  indebtedness   and   have   borrowed  little    additional    money.     Prices  have been good and the prospect is  that' they will continue good.   It is  true   that  there arc   certain   bare  areas   in" districts   which   should  never have been placed under, cultivation, and where  farmers have  suffered very much from* drought:  In  the  remaining "districts  of'"thc  Prairie Provinces I found farmers,  as a rule,' happier-and more contented  and  more hopeful than  in  previous years;   Iwas speaking today to the superintendent of. one of  our  largest' banks,- andJ he  stated  that payments by the farmers had  been.much better than in 1913, and  that-they had. been--'quite satisfactory . on the whole throughout the  Western Provinces."^-, -'>���������������������������*'  A great earthquake swept over  Central and Southern I laly lhe  past week, and thc loll of dead i.s  estimated, at 50,000. Towns with  thousands of inhabitants have been  overthrown, and from these comes  evidence of immense loss of life.  In the ancient territory of-lhe Marsi  which includes Avezzano, the casualties arc placed al 20,000. Only  a small minority is left of lhe inhabitants of Avezzano, who numbered approximately 10,000. Fifteen other towns and viHinges in  that section have been laid wasle.  King Victor Emmanuel i.s on the  scene at Avezzano, and 30,000 soldiers have been despatched to the  various centres where the force of  the disturbance-was greatest.  While the greater part of Ihe  danfage was done by the first earthquake, there has been al least one  severe-shock since then, and it i.s  estimated . lhat more than 100  shocks of a minor nature occurred  during the 24 hours after lhe disaster.  ish one billion feet of merchantable  limber a year for one hundred  years to come.  Climatic mildness allows of continuous all-year work in the logging camps and mills.  The opening of the Panama Canal  will put British Columbia timber to  the front in the markets of the  world.  British Columbia is a virgin field  for lhc manufacture of timber byproducts.  Total stand of merchantable timber in British Columbia is not less  than three hundred billion board  feet.

And then hc mentioned-advertising as one of thc things he would  do without, until the war is over.

It even goes to another town. It is  an actual fact that good, hard cash  that should remain in the home  4 own^w i tlwlhc=h o m (Ljn crchant-is  finding its way to tlie coffers of the  merchants in neighboring towns.  Those merchants are not slopping  their advertising because of thc  war. On the contrary, they arc advertising the harder, and in so doing are drawing the cash business  away from thc merchant who believes in economizing by slopping  his store news to the people whose  busincf* hc expects and would  cherish.  Advertising is most effective when  continuous. Ils main purpose is to  set up a momentum of reputation,  prestige and good-will, thai lalcr on  creates sales.

WEST'S  Ladies' and  Gents' Tailor  Enderby THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, January 21, 1915  GALLANT PRINCESS PATS  It is truly remarkable what 'stuff  some of those 'war correspondents'  will send from the  front.    A few-  days ago a rosy story came from  '   London   that  read   like   the   fairy  laics in "Jack the Giant Killer."   IL  was  all  about  our  Princess   Pals.  Mow they were rushed forward to  save  the day  for Britain  and  the  Allies when all the other troops al  the front had been fought lo a stand  slill   by   the   ever-defeated   but  always coming up enemy.   The story  told  of a  gallant charge;  of  their  taking at the point of the bayonet  a whole mile of trenches, barb-wire  entanglements and  all, ancl  of the  Germans lleeing from them as from  a mighty avalanche. Another report  told of these gallant Princess Pats,  200   strong,   storming   a   position,  and coming back with .only 80 left.  F. A. McKcnzie tells thc straight  of  il   in   the  Vancouver  Province.  "I  have  enquired   very  carefully,"  says hc, "inlo the stories of heavy  losses of life among lhe  Patricias,  which circulated freely in London  lasl week, but can find no foundation   for   them.     Every   Canadian  officer at the front is agreed aboul  what look place.    Some men from  an  adjoining  British  regiment   tell  marvelous  stories   of  the Germans  storming the Patricias' position and  being driven back.    They say the  Germans, who evidently knew fresh  troops had come into the trenches,  made a sustained attempt to capture  Iheir   position,   but   lhe   Patricias  succeeded in  repelling them.    The  Patricias tell me that il' this were  so they must have fought lhc Germans in Iheir sleep, for they know  nothing of il.   The boys are highly  amused at thc stories -which have  appeared    in    thc    London    newspapers of how, when the Germans  advanced,   the  Canadians  counter-  advanced 'in   slouch-halted   battalions, charging into the enemy with  Old England;" of how they captured a hundred yards of German  trenches and victoriously pursued  the fleeing German hosts. The boys  are going to find the corporal who  related this tale to an innocent  English reporter and give him the  prize medal of the Ananias club.  The truth about the Princess Pats  is thai Ihey spcnl one night and a  day as a relief corps in one of thc  Hooded trenches, and only three of  their number were killed and 14  wounded."

Sir Richard McBride, Premier,  desires that the following public  statement of his be made as public  as possible: "There appears to be a  persistent rumor which has gained  considerable currency in the Province, that- my late secretary was  associated with the stealing and.  manipulation of plans of home defence and that Ihe discovery of his  complicity therein was thc cause of  his death. Since returning from  my recent visit east I learned lhat  some such rumor had. been published in a Seattle paper, but I paid  no attention to it other than as a  phase of newspaper sensationalism.  It never occurred to me that in  British Columbia, where Mr. Macrae  was well known, any heed would be  paid to it. It is a painful subject  for me to discuss, but in justice to  the memory of one who never be-,  t rayed a trust or was disloyal to  his country in thought, word or  deed, 1 must stale most emphatically thai the rumor is without the  slightest possible foundation. The  circulation of such stories, wilful or  otherwise, is a1 cruel reflection upon  my late secretary and painful in  the extreme lo relatives and friends.  Mr. Macrae, had been suffering for  many months With a nervous ailment, and his untimely death cannot in the slightest degree be regarded as a .reflection in any way  upon his honor as a man or citizen."  ���������������������������  ���������������������������>  Y  Y  Y  Y  Y  Y  OPPORTUNITY FOR B. C. APPLES  Information gathered by Mr. W.  A. Blair, for the U. S. Government  and recently published, would indicate that the Argentine Republic  offers an ideal market for B. C.  apples. Apples are admitted into  that country free of duty, and the  retail prices run from 84c per  dozen for the.best varieties, to 50c  for lhe small red variety.  Argentine will1 be an expanding  and profitable field for representatives of the fruit interests of B. C,  as it has been demonstrated by Government experiments that cither the  climate or soil, or both, arc not  favorable to the production of an  apple of good quality, and there are  ho "pT-o.'TpeclFllmril^  of that counlry will be able to  meet the demand for many years to  come. The apples that are the  most popular types resemble our  Winter Banana, Jonathan, Ben  Davis, Kings and Snow apples.
