 - _-jJa>1,itj_n_*k_ iH^U  ^  Enderby, B. C, April 8, 1915  AND   '-WALTER'S.    WEEKLY  Vol. 8; No. 6; Whole No. 360  Assailing an Unassailable Position  on the Political Platform in Enderby  A Conservative meeting was held  in the Enderby Opera House Tuesday evening. Thc object in calling  the meeting was apparently to give  Mr. Ellison an opportunity to explain lhat historical cattle deal with  lhe Colony Farm. Mr. Basil Gardom,  the man responsible for bringing  lhe unpleasant transaction to lighl,  arrived in Enderby Tuesday morning and appeared al the meeting.  The opera house was fairly well  filled. It was not what one could  'call an enthusiastic audience, but  a good-natured one���������������������������and well that  it was. It was apparent, however,  that every man .in. thc audience  entered thc hall with a certain prejudice' for one man or the other,  and when the meeting closed he  carried that prejudice away with  him' somewhat accentuated.  ' The meeting was somewhat of a  "corker"  with  the  accent  on   lhc  " first syllable if not both syllables.  Thc" "unassailable position" of Mrv  ��������������������������� Ellison * was, assailed- from' ever'/*  point.l It was none, of your trench  warfare .either.    It was all in the  "open,* wilh everybody" in-dead earnest yet with*enough humor' iir.it all  To save the situation. - V   'J -  Mr. Chas;'' Little, -of Mara, occupied the chair, ��������������������������� and tactfully allowed tlie meeting ..to' drift along  with .the'streain.so as to avoid the  rocks: r There -were .some' cow bells  present���������������������������very /appropriate to the  occasion���������������������������but these, for' the most  part, were,kept pretty well under  covcrT On taking the chair Mr.  Little's, preliminary remarks were  pacific to a degree, and precluded  all thought of any disturbance in  the china shop. Mr. Gardom was  given half an' hour in which to ad-'  dress the meeting,* with a further  courtesy granted of 15 minutes in  which to.reply to any statement that  Mr. Ellison might make, with the  closing of the meeting to be left to  Mr. Ellison.  Mr. Gardom's Statement  In his opening remarks, Mr. Gardom showed sonic disinclination to  approach thc subject uppermost ih  his mind. He confined his remarks  to reading a letter written by him to  Jhc Vancouver News-Advertiser ex-  "plainiiii^lIis^Tntry-intcr-the-^arena  against Mr. Ellison. He had no  quarrel with thc Conservative parly  but was in the field to expose the  Colony Farm transactions in which  hc claimed Mr. Ellison was guilty  of misconduct as a minister of the  Government and untrue to the confidence reposed in him by the electors of the' Okanagan. He read  from the official proceedings of thc  .Provincial House lhe questions ancl  answers given in the House in connection with Mr. Ellison's transaction with thc Colony Farm. In one  of these official records, when similar questions were asked in tne  House, Mr. Ellison's answers gave  in one lump the sum paid by him  by a certain promissory note for  certain cattle and certain "young  stuff," without naming any of the  pedigreed cattle or the 'young-stufi.  These answers were given al 1914  session of the legislature. In thc  session of 1915 he himself had prepared questions covering the same  transaction but specifically naming  the cattle as found registered in the  Holstein herd book of Canada. The  answers in the official journal ot  1914 give the prices as, "Cattle,  $300," and "Young stuff, $250." In  the journal of 1914, Mr. Gardom  read the prices paid by other buyers of stock from the Colony Farm.  These prices, for cattle sold to Rev.  Andrew McDonald, Ladysmith, B.C.,  (eight head) are, given oppositeethe  name of each animal, as "$500,"***  "������������������500," "$500," "$500," "$400,"  "$400," "$200," and "$400." In the  official journal of 1915 we find the  answers given over Mr. Ellisons  signature, ancl that he paid , in  some round about way by a hen  note the sum of $175 for four cows  which he says (in the same document) cost the Government $1,201.  "But Mr. Ellison says these were  culls. Yet they had been bred before thev left the Colony Farm to  two of the premier bulls on lhe  continent, and in the next year's  Holstein Fricsian Herd Book I see  five calves registered from these  'worthless' culls. Mr. Ellison did  not pay as much for these cows as  the service fees of these famous  bulls would have amounted' to. I  myself paid $575 under the auctioneer's hammer for a suckling calf  from one of these bulls."  "Colony Roel Luella is put down  by Mr. Ellison, in his answers on the  floor of the* House, as a calf at $25,  yet she had been bred toivorndyke  Butterboy Pride before Mr. Ellison  got her_.and Mr. Ellison registered a  calf,as born,to her Feb. 25/1913,  six'months' after she was taken  from the Colony Farm to Mr. Ellison's ranch in the Okanagan.  "Colony Celia-Fayne is down as a  calf at $25., Her mother-had a record of, 30 -pounds of butter in a  vveek, and was worth $1000. She  was in calf when Mr. Ellison got her  for in Vol. 17 of the Herd BopkJie  registered Ellison's Ellen of Okanagan, got ��������������������������� by - the . famous ''bull.

'  ' '"Mr. Ellison tells us on .the order  paper" that the valuation was -put  upon  these  cattle by thc medical  superintendent and head herdsman  of the Colony Farm.    I am in a position to say lhat no such valuations  as'Mr. Ellison states in his answers  were set by the head herdsman.   I  have seen the valuations set for the  cattle, and can-say that the.cattle  which Mr. Ellison  says were valued ,to him at $475, were really valued !by the herdsman al $2,175."  Mr. Ellison's Statement     ��������������������������� ,  Mr. Ellison took the platform the  momentJVIr.^Garclom_stepp_edJjlowii1.  Hc launched into the cattle subject  somewhat apologetically, but with  evident determination to make the  best of a bad deal. Hc ridiculed thc  idea that he had ever been guilty of  wrong doing. 'The Colony Farm, he  eaj?h calf, did it not cost the Government Farm as much to keep the  mothers of these calves before he  got them at $25 ancl $50 ancl $75  apiece?  "1 have a hundred cows on my  ranch better than those sent me  from the Colony .Farm. I fear  nothing that any man has lo say  I value my  any of you  I am hot afraid of the  will .give on election  against me.  reputation  genllemen  said, was not under the Department  of Agriculture, therefore he could  not have used the people's money  to buy thc cattle and then sell them  to himself at the reduced prices  slated. Hc visited lhe Colony Farm  but had no intention of buying the  cattle. The cattle he got from thc  farmxwere culls of the Ayorst type.  He bought them because they were  culls. He did not see them until he  saw them on his ranch in the Okanagan. They were not the cattle he  had spoken for. He was greatly  disappointed in them. They had  not come up  to  his  expectations.  "A thief is not made in a night,"  said Mr. Ellison, "and I am sure  that you will not turn down a man  who has served you for 17 ycars  with no further charges against  him than those put up by the man  who is my opponent in this election. I am the legal nominee of the  Conservative convention, and ask  the support of all Conservatives in  Enderby district. You have always  given me a handsome majority and  I ani sure you will do so again.  I am as innocent as any of you,  gentlemen, in this cattle transaction.  The cows were very indifferent  animals. It doesn't matter about  the $2000, or $500 prices mentioned  as what they were-worth or cost the  Government. I tell you, gentlemen,  they were culls���������������������������very indifferent  cows. I did sell two or three of  the calves from these cows at $125  apiece, but I tell you, gentlemen, it  cost mc a good $10 a month to raise  these calves, and they were worlh  all I sold them for."  Here a voice from thc audience  wanted to know of Mr. Ellison if , , _. .  it cost him $10 a month to raise slated, but whal he had read was  the same as  value yours,  verdict you  day." -  Regarding, his resignation, 'Mr.  Ellison said he wired it in to Sir  Richard McBride from Salmon Arm  on his way home from Victoria on  the day lhat the House prorogued.  He resigned because he-found the  duties of the oflice too arduous for  him To attend to. <  Mr. Ellison Avas kept busy for  some time explaining.how he was  not responsible for the answers  given over his,signature on the order paper of the legislative proceedings. The answers were made  by other officials, .'he said, 'in the  Colony Farm department.   ^  Mr. Ellison was asked'how.much  he would take for, the cattle he-had  bought from the Colony Farm,; for  $475. * His reply was',a request for  the enquirer-to. come down-to his.  ranch and* see' them. , "The.co.w  that "I" gave .$250yfor is condemned,  so those Isaidwereyculls tire-'still,  culls, genllemen." ^.'v- ' -7 ���������������������������*:  >Mr;; Heggie: ^"Will* *y'o.u 'telF-the  meeting- why,,you , ibought those  cows,,-Mr. Ellison?'.'  "I bought them because7 they  were being weeded out, gentlemen."  --"Then you bought them because  they were ciills.' ' We who have  known-you a long time, Mr. Ellison,  cannot be expected to believe that.  It is not the way you- do things  generally."  "T have told* you why I bought  them, gentlemen. I did not see  them. They were not the cattle I  expected to get. I did not go to the  Colony Farm to buy them. Do you  believe me, gentlemen?"  Cries of "No," "No," "No."  "Some of-those which you say  were suckling calves, when you  bought them, we learn from the  herd book had calves six months  after you, got them? It must be the  climate up here is responsible?"  Mr. Gardom's Reply  News Notes of Enderby and District _  Briefly Told for Busy Readers  left on Monday  Mr. Ellison "parried the thrusts  as deftly as possible ancl with not  a little good humor, showing how  well he has learned the art of platform speaking. On the contrary,  Mr. Gardom, who retook thc spot  light, showed an exuberance of fire  and earnestness, but fell short in  humor and sauvity. He hit hard in  his reply to Mr. Ellison's explanation of the cattle**deal. Hc said nc  would gladly go into the qucslmn  of platform ancl what hc proposed  to do for the people of thc Northern  Okanagan, if elected,, at his own  meeting-in the near future. What  he believed Ihe people of this riding arc particularly inlcrestd in  just now is whether Mr. Ellison has  proved himself a fit person to be  again entrusted with the important  duty of representing the riding. He  claimed that he had forfeited the  right to carry lhe prefix 'honorable'  to his name, and he charged Mr.  Ellison with having been untrue to  thc trust reposcl in him. He ques-  lioned-whether Mr. Ellison had ever  paid a cent on the cattle. Certainly  he did not pay one dollar clown on  the purchase of them*, for hc so  states in his answers on the floor of  the House. This is not the usual  way of doing things when any of  the farmers of the Province go to  the Colony Farm to purchase these  fine-bred animals. They have to  buy them al auction; they go to the  highest bidder, ancl for cash. It  does not inaltcr who the buyer, thc  cash must be paid clown. He said  Mr. Ellison did nol buy in this way.  He went in bv the hack door and  look the cattle. And he says hc  paid, for them in a round .about way  by a ccrlain mysterious lien note.  He said Mr. Ellison could hardly  hope to pull lhc wool over the people's eves as he was attempting to  do. He had read from certain papers, il was true, as My. Ellison has  . Rev. J. A.

APRIL 8, 1915  CANADA'S GREAT UNDERTAKING  ing  .lust how energetically the Government is carry-  out lhe policy outlined by Sir Robert Borden  at the outset of the war, of keeping 50,000 men  continually in training in Canada and of sending  forward a continual stream of lighting units to  the aid ol* lhc Empire is possibly nol realized by  the people ol" Canada. Thc ollicial figures show  lhal Canada today has 95,000 soldiers on active  service and under arms, distributed as follows:  First contingent, now at the front, with reserves in England, 33,000; Princess Patricia Light  Infantry and reinfo'rccmcnls, 1,000 men; Royal  Canadian regiment al Bermuda, 1,200 men; regiment at St. Lucia, British West Indies, 500 men;  thirteen regiments of mounted men, 7/100; second  contingent, mcl  tiding  4,000 already in England,  20,000; twenty-six regiments ol* third and fourth  contingents, 20,000; men on home defence duly  ancl guarding alien camps, 10,092 men. In addition to the foregoing, there has been sent forward  various hospital, veterinary and other detachments, which would make something like 1,500  or 2.000 men.  According  lo   an   ollicial  number ol  prisoners oi  w  801.000 enlisted   men  and  officers.

It is probable  number of prisoners if  the question soon will be a serious  one how these prisoners, il* Ihey keep on increasing, are going lo be taken care of.  SEASONABLE HINTS  Hon. Martin Burrell is not leaving a slonc unturned in his efforts lo make lhe Department of  Agriculture of practical usefulness and helpfulness lo even lhc humblest farmer .of lhe Dominion and lo lhe great agricultural industry as a  whole. The latest cll'orl is in the form of a  monthly bulletin entitled "Seasonable Mints,"  which, as ils name implies, is filled wilh seasonable hints given by the various men employed by  the (iovernmenl as superintendents of the Dominion Experimental Farms situated in the various  provinces. "Seasonable Hints," as we understand it. is published primarily lo assist in making  Ihe work of the Dominion Experimental Farms  of more and more use lo the individual agriculturist; to encourage every farmer to feel thai the  Department is deeply interested in his success; lo  make the Experimental Farms system a house  hold word as representing the inslilulion lo which  hc instinctively turns for assistance in sol villi  his dailv farming problems.  Number 1 of "Seasonable Mints" was publishec  Canadians eat loo much meat.' They arc one  of lhe three greatest meat-eating peoples in the  world, Australia and the United Stales being thc  other two. High prices for meal are coming. The  cost of food as well as ils nutritive value should  be considered. Prof. James Long, the eminent  British authority, recently addressed lhe following advice lo the war office:  "Jam has Ihrcc-and-a-half times the energy  value of butter. Ils value lies in ils richness in  sugar���������������������������of which one-half ils weight consists���������������������������in  lhc minerals present ih the skins of fruits, in ils  laxative character and ils mechanical aid to digestion. Thc most nutritious and useful varieties of  jam arc Ihose made from plum, apricot, gooseberry and currant, but a mixture of plum and  apple stand at the head of the list. Jam should  not be considered as a daintv, but as an article of  food."  Dr. Frank T. Shu It, of Ottawa, Dominion chemist, gives thc following authoritative statement as  to lhc great importance of vegetables, especially  fresh or home-grown.    Thc importance in connection wilh small gardens in towns and cities is  apparent, and the subject is opportune at this  time ol* thc year, when there is a general tendency  to en "large upon the garden plols in this particular locality.    It my be that a small garden will  keep down lhe doctor's bills and give the undertaker a vacation:      "That many of lhe ills lhat  Ilesh is heir lo arise from indiscretions in diet is a  fact   thai  more  of  us  should  realize���������������������������and   the  earlier in life Lhc belter.

WARWICK  Secretary  The Okanagan United Growers  last week took the first slep in what  is believed'will be the disorganization of the fruit growers' organizaV getting  lion of Ihe Valley. It was the only.:making  possible step to lake, under lhc circumstances.. yAt a meeting of the  Uniled Growers held al Vernon last  week, Mr. R. Robertson, manager  of Ihe organization since ils inception two years ago, resigned lhe  management, and will return to his  Vancouver business. It was a few  minutes of 12 o'clock last Wednesday night, afler hours of discussion  lhat lhc the motion asking for the  resignation of Mr. Robertson, was  adopted by a majority of one, the  vole standing 12 lo 13. This vote,  it is stated, represents thc wish of  but a few of the voters, but there  seemed to be no alternative. It was  either that they support the motion  or have Penticton . and Kelowna  withdraw from lhe Central.  Commenting on the resignation  the Summerland Review says:  "Peachland, Summerland, Armstrong, Enderby and Salmon Arm,  ancPa section of Vernon, opposed  Mr. Robertson's resignation, and  look upon the situation- as critical,  ancl view his- going with alarm.  Mr. Robertson declared, however,  that he could not continue in view  of, the clamorous opposition that  had been stirred up by, agitators,  both within and without. Mr. Robertson has offered, if it is desired,  to stay with the Growers till they  get into shape and a successor is  named. No probable successor is  in sight. Very strong expressions  of confidence in ancl approval of  Mr. Robertson were made by the  majority of the representatives,*  ancl the feeling at thc session the  next morning was deep ancl serious.  Thc policy outlined by the Central,  as published some/weeks ago,,was  practically adopted with only slight  modifications.���������������������������" 'It was' decided -to  'try.-out -some sales offices'- on- the-  prairies "and one warehouse at  least. .It is probable that .Salmon  Arm and'^ossibly 'other locals may  break away from the'Central"because .of Mr.. Robertson's resignation." -:    ,  This step in the turbulent experience of the Okanagan United Growers was not unlookcd for. So much  dissatisfaction has been felt with  the results of the policy of fhe Central Selling Agency, it was only the  garden  has  been grown and  was demanding a market. And the  only system that has succeeded in  the growers together ancl  them prosperous has been  by co-operalion���������������������������co-operation. ���������������������������' in  limes of adversity as well as times  of plenty. And if was-not done by  heaping the blame upon the manager and changing managers with  every adverse wind.  THREE POINTS OF PROTEST  Briefly, thc tree points of protest  filed by the United States against  the blockade declared by Great  Britain and her allies of the German coast have been given as follows :  1. The. seizure by the Allies of  noncontraband goods proceeding to  or from Germany through neutral  territory is unwarranted.  ���������������������������2. The area of the blockading  operations, described by the Allies,  as "European waters, including the  Mediterranean," is too indefinite.  3. The intention to punish at a  subsequent time any vessel which  eludes the "cruiser cordon" and  proceeds to a German port is unjustifiable.  President Wilson's advisers in  these matters are clearly of opinion  that thc international law of blockades is against the Allies in this  case. The President has been advised, however, tha_t it would be  unwise to contend for too strict a  compliance with the rules of ordinary blockade, it being pointed out  that the development of submarines  will tend more and more to destroy  thc hitherto accepted', notions of-  a blockade.-  LAW.OR MILITARISM  WHEELER  W.

In  losing Mr. Robertson thc Okanagan  United Growers lose a man it will  be very difficult to replace. A man  of exceptional nerve energy and  insight, ancl an indefatigable man-  agcr, MrTRobcrtson tried most con-  scicntiously and intelligently to  put the Okanagan United Growers  on a stable, sound co-operative  basis. That hc laid thc foundation  well will yet be proved, but thc  growers themselves have shown the  need of a truer conception of the  spirit of co-operation essential to  building upon  such  a   foundation.  War conditions the past season  knocked the bottom out of the market last year, and thc first season  caught the organization incomplete  with the fruit crop demanding  immediate-attention... It is doubtful  if any man on earth could have  done belter than Mr. Robertson in  thc first two years' of the organization's existence. Time will tell.  But one thing is certain: no man  will attempt to do belter than he  who is not given more loyal support  than was given Mr. Robertson.  We trust that the co-oprative  movement of the growers will not  receive a severe check owing to thc  resignation of Mr. Robertson. It is  certain that the growers of thc  Okanagan cannot do the impossible:  they cannot solve Ihe market and  production problems by any other  system than co-operation. They  may think their problems are different than the growers of .other localities have been through. But it  is not so. The same problems have  come up in every locality where  fruit and olher produce of the field  There is a broad principle involved of far-reaching importance  in. the stand which.,this'.country, is  making for a "strict, observance of  Uie 'rules1 of international" law- arid  the preservation of neutral rights.  It. is hot the mereVfucstion of dollars ancl cents; not whether American trade shall,suffer more or less  of interruption. The real question is  whether'th j" rules which have received the assent of .all-nations in  the past respecting" the rights of-  neutrals can be abrogated at will by  any power of great naval ancl military strength whenever it may find  it to its interests to do so.  If one country or another can  arrogate to itself lhe right to ignore  the rights of others, by reason of Us  military ancl naval strength, then all  rights of all countries are held entirely at the mercy of those particular countries. Thc only remedy for  such a condition of affairs is for  countries whose rights' are thus  overridden, and who are able lo do  so, to place Iheir military establishments on such a fooling that they  become equal or superior in military strength lo the powers which  assume lhat Ihey are superior lo lhe  laws of nations.  It is a question presented whether  lhere is such a thing as inlernalional law, through which national  rights can be protected without  Iheir defense by force, or whether  thc law is lo be thrown inlo lhc discard ancl wc are to go back lo primitive conditions wherein might is lo  be the only rule of right; when  countries have no rights save those  which they are prepared to protect  with the'strong arm.  In olher words, thc issue presented is that of militarism against  law. In this we arc standing hot  for any'cold commercial'proposition, not for any matter of dollars  ancl cents, but for thc national  rights of all countries. Wc refuse  to admit thai the rights of all of the  nonmilitary nations are held only  at thc sufferance of the strong-military nations, ancl that no nation has  any rights to be considered unless  she has the military ancl naval  strength to make it dangerous to invade them.���������������������������Chicago Tribune.

In thc first place, if his Butler  wrappers arc neatly printed with his name and  thc brand of thc butter on lhc label, lhc storekeepers can readily sell the butler al*5c a pound  more than hc can get for buller wrapped in paper  that is nol printed, and tbe butler-maker gels thc  advantage in 5c a pound more for his butler from  thc merchant.

MORE TO DREAD THAN TO MOCK  The issue of the London Times  containing, the text of the Lloyd  George speech that roused all Britain against the liquor evil, has just  arrived in this counlry. Tlie speech  was delivered at a labor meeting at  Bangor, Males. The fervent peroration, which will become historic,  follows:  "Thc Allied countries, between  them, could raise armies of over  twenty millions of men. Our counlry can put in the field barely half  that number. Much as I would like  lo talk aboul the need of more men,  that is not lhe-point of my special  appeal today. We stand more in  need of equipment than.of men. The  war is an engineering work and il  will be won or lost owing to thc  efforts or short-comings of engineers. Our enemies realize lhis,  and employers ancl workmen in  Germany are straining to their utmost. T hear of workmen in armament works here who refuse to  work a full week's work for the nation's needs.   Thev are a minority.  But you must remember a small  minority of workmen can throw a  whole work out of gear. "What is  the reason? Sometimes it is one  thing, sometimes it is another, but  lei us be perfectly candid. It is  mostly for the lure of drink. They  refuse to work full lime, ancl when  they return, their strength and efficiency are impaired by the way  in which Ihcy have spent their  leisure. Drink is doing us more  damage than all the German submarines.  "Unless wc are able lo equip our  armies, our predominance of men  will avail us nothing. We need  men, but we need .arms more.than  men, and delay in producing them  is full of peril for this country.  "You may say that I am saying  things that ought lo be kepi from  Ihe enemy. I am nol a believer in  giving any information which is  useful to him. You may depend on  il, he knows. But I don'l believe  in withholding from our own people information which Ihey ought to  possess, because, unless you can tell  them you cannot invite their cooperation. Thc nation that cannol  bear the truth is nol fit for war, but  the many of our young men who are  volunteers, and lhe unflinching  pride of those they have left behind  Ihem in their, deed of sacrifice  ought to satisfy thc mosl apprehensive that we are nol a timid race  who cannot face unpleasant facts.  "We musl appeal for the co-operation bf our employers, workmen  ancl the general public. The three  must act and endure greater sacrifices or we shall delay, ancl may be,  imperil victory.  "Wc laugh at things in Germany  that ought to terrify us. Wc say:  Look at the way they are making  their bread oul of potatoes.' Aye,  lhat potato bread spirit is something which is more to dread lhan  to mock. That is thc spirit in which  a country should meet a great  emergency, ancl ���������������������������instead of mocking  it, we ought to imitate it."
