Cornuz, of  Lutry,  Switzerland.  - Friday, 23rd, St George's Day;  Pastoral Festival, St. George's  Church: Holy Communion, 8 a.m.;  Choral- Evensong, 7.30 p.m.  Mr. and Mrs. F. Pyman have removed from Clinton, B.C., lo Vancouver, where Mr. Pyman is filling  up a jcwclery store on Granville  street. _  T. G. Stowards, of Grindrod, has  concluded lo place the famous 3-  ycar-old stallion, "Jim Belmont,"  for service at the Hazelmerc  Ranch.  It should be a matler'of note that  one .whole day passed this week in  which there was-nobody-fired by  thc municipality of South Vancouver.     v  V The Enderby tennis club members are enjoying the early season,  the club courls .being occupied  much .of the-time by the skillful  players.       ��������������������������� r    :*   .

Reed, -is  receiving'great praise from all having an eye-for the beautiful.  The hard times dance - recently.  . held at Grindrod school"house was  a great success in the matter of  good lime, but after paying expenses there was only $0.50 left  for the Red Cross.  The Fulton Hardware Co., is putting on .one of those money-saving  spring sales which have been so  popular with this company in thc  past and so much appreciated by.  the buying public. <���������������������������  Mr. A. E. Taylor evidently is enjoying the quiet life of the effete  East, for he writes from his new-  surroundings and palatial home in  New Brunswick: 'After a man gels  ^one^biterbe^wants-to-eaWhc--whole  darned  apple."  Manager Dickson says the Enderby Growers' Association is exerting every efl'ort to "handle thc  produce from ancl for Iheir members, this season, ancl he urges all,  particularly at this time, to hold  fast to thc organization.  Mr. ancl Mrs. John Kidslon, of  Vernon, motored to Enderby on  Friday lasl. Mr. Kidslon says the  feeling at Vernon amongst .the  general body of citizens is very  favorable to' Mr. Gardom in his  campaign against Mr. Ellison.  The Evening Journal, Joe Martin's personal organ published in  Vancouver lhe pasl monlh or two.  was laid away in lhc journalistic  graveyard���������������������������another tribute to the  brilliancy of "Fighting Joe's"  mind and the sagacity of his purse.  Thc Provincial Government is  feeding 800 men at Fort George.  Most-of the men in the bread line  are Germans, Austrians ancl Russians. A move is being made to  put these men to work on the Government roads at a small wage,  but this policy has not yet been  inaugurated.  It is reported from Toronto thai  June 28th has been tentatively sel  as the date for the Dominion elections, though this has not been  staled by any of the parly leaders.  If the Dominion elections arc held  in June il is hardly probable thai  thc Provincial elections will be  brought on before September.  The heavy windstorm which  swept thc Valley Monday night,  seems to have been general in thc  interior and at the coast. The  Vancouver Province says there has  not been such destruction of trees  in  Vancouver's  park  for  at  least  three years as was wrought by the  windstorm thcYc. More than 200  trees in the park were laid low.  Mr. J. L. Rullan returned from  ihe Fort Fraser country on Wednesday. Hc reports business good  in the upper country, but the general lack of finances'there as elsewhere. Mr. Ruttan has transferee!  his saw mills from Fort'Fraser to  Vanderhoof, where the mills have  been culling lo the full capacity of  the saws since the opening of the  spring months.  Mr. -J. S. Hiam, superintendent  of the Saskatchewan branches of  the Union Bank of Canada, ancl Mr.  P. Vibert, superintendent of the B.  C. branches, visited the Enderby  branch thc past week. Discussing  the general outlook, Mr. Hiam said  there was 23 per cent more acreage  planted to wheal in Saskatchewan  this year than last, in all, 28,000,-  000 acres, and crop conditions,  he said,.could^not be betler. lie  felt safe in predicting that this  year's harvest would be thc  grealesl in Saskatchewan's history,  and . would bring millions of  dollars into the Northwest.     - -  Mr. Geo. Brown*'received, word  from his son Rein this week, saying that he and his pal, cx-Coh-  stable Oland, who-were ihe first lo"  leave'for the front from-Enderby,  are-in splendid health.

It  proved, to be a false alarm. -They  expected .to leave England for the  Dardanelles' about the  15th April.  musical aggregation, but they did  not lack anything Bohemian. Each  number given by ,lhcin was heartily encored, and everybody agreed  that the encoics were deserved. In  addition to the excellent Bohemian numbers, solos which were  much enjoyed were given by Miss  Wood ancl Miss Robinson, "and a  violin solo by Miss Frazer; and  recitations lhat were more than  pleasing were given by Miss Hazel  Stevens and Mr. Rains. Interspersing these short talks were indulged in by Rev. Mr. Dow and  Rev. Mr. Wood, while Rev. C. Reed  pleased lhc, audience by singing.  FIRST WINDOW SHOW  ANNIVERSARY SERVICES'  The Anniversary Services in the  Melhodist Church last Sunday  ���������������������������morning and evening, conducted  by the Rev. J. C. Switzer, of Kelowna, were exceptionally well attended, and each service heartily participated in by all. Mr. Switzer -is  a fluent speaker ancl a broad,  analytical thinker, and his discourses were closely followed aiK1  much  enjoyed.  Monday   evening,   in   K.   of   F  Hall, the anniversary .concert w.i.  held,   and_ this,   too,  proved   bolh  cnlerta i ni ng~amr^pi'ofitable:    Hcrr  Rev. Mr. Swilzcr proved  an ideal  chairman.    "Perhaps the most in  lercsting feature -on  the  program,  was lhe music rendered by a genuine    all-wool-and-a-yard-wide    Bo-  Memian orchestra���������������������������composed  of a  family   of   five,   from   the   Trinity  Valley   neighborhood.

Mention should also be made of the  fact lhat thc membership\fee has  been reduced lo 50c this year, for  adults, and all who are'desirous of  helping out the good work being  done by' the, society are urged to  send in their names accompanied  by thc membership fee al their  earliest convenience. A. C. Skaling is secretary of the society, and  Mr. Rosoman treasurer, to cither of  whom fees may be sent, or the  same will be taken at the office of  thc Walker Press and ollicial receipt given.  cussion it was decided that after  Monday, April' 26lh, aft persons  found riding bicycles on the "city  sidewalks would be prosecuted,  and Constable Bailey was instructed lo give cll'cel lo this decision;  also in the mailer.of carrying bells  lo warn pedestrians, and lights al  nigh I.  The'board shaving received information of-repeated damage to  fences and gales of the recreation  ground by persons traversing the  ground or for the unlawful purpose of putting cows,or horses in  lhe ground for grazing, it was ordered that the clerk have eight  colton notices printed and posted,  warning the public that any person known to be guilty of such wilful .damage will be proceeded  against.  The Constable was instructed to  enforce   the  law   prohibiting   ani-  effect upon a hardware*" man, or a  boot and shoe man, or a harness-  man. The law requires^ that iwo-  thirds' of the businessmen in each  line "'of   business   covered   in   the  by-law asked  'fition asking  passed,  are three  boot and  the' town,  willing lo  for  for  mals   running  tethered in the  at   large  streets.  or   being  HALF-HOLIDAY BY LAW  POLICE COMMISSIONERS MEET  At a meeting of thc Policc\Com-  -nissioners at the City Hall Tues-  !ay evening, - Commissioner Dill  ���������������������������cported thai at the meeting of lhe  City" Council following lhe lasl  meeting of thc board, he had taken  Ti p**** th crnn a ttc r "=01���������������������������t h e=r e gu 1 a i i o n^o f**  bicycles, pointing out that thc bylaw should cither be repealed or  enforced, and staling that if lhe  by-law were retained by-the Council on the statute book thc board  would consider il their duty to enforce it, and that the Council had  decided to retain the by-law and  have it enforced.    After some (Ms  . Whether the latest move on the  part of thc majority of* thc businessmen of Enderby to, establish a  weekly-half-holiday is" lo prove  any more' popular-or successful  lhan those efforts of previous yean,  yet remains to.be..seen. This lime  Ihey "a re going about it._to'-force-"the  hallMioliday'by compulsion?*' The  petition-receivecFby the City Council *at its-last-meeting, signed-by  eleven -businessmen * will-, be"- actid-  upon .-immediately..

But I he-  provisions -of thc Shops Acl._do  I not enable ihe businessmen of one  line of business lo dictate to Ihe  businessmen engaged in other  lines, and it is just possible that  the by-law asked for will put the  businessmen just where they find  themselves al Ihe beginning. For  instance, if say three grocers are  doing business in a lown, and one  or more or all of Ihem want lo go  fishing once a- week, but will, no!  take a day oil' for fear one of his  competitors will do some business  in his absence, therefore, say two  of thc three go on a petition  asking the Cily Council to forbid  -eilhcr"of-the.Mhree-to-open=his=\storc-  for business when the other fellow  goes fishing, in this case the two  control lhc third. This done, all  three of Ihem can go fishing or  slay al home, feeling al peace, for  each knows thai lhc other has his  place of business closed also. But  Ihose three grocers cannol have a  shall sign lhe pe-  the by-law lo be  And,    supposing    there  hardware men, or -three  shoe men in^business m    ,-  and only one of them i.s  sign such a petition, then    *-  any law passed in accordance with   -  the petition cannot be made efl'ec- *  live upon  the hardware men .who .  refused to sign the petition.

LATEST WAR SUMMARY  \ *--.: **  reported  British  Allied lleet  Battleship Swiflsure  preparing for another bombardment  of  the   Dardanelles.  If wc accept British claims as  accurate, there is good reason to  believe lhal another important advance has been made by -the Empire troops in the"Flanders" bailie"  fronI, though the German claims  covering thc same engagement arc  directly opposed to the claims  made  by  Ihe  British  and   French.  According to Ihe British version  Hill No. 00, an important strategic  point, has been laken from lhc  enemy, though at great cost in  killed and wounded. The British,  whether they hold all lhe ground  gained, undoubtedly still dominate  a part of Zandfoord ridge, a line  of hills running southeast of Ypres  to Menin.  In the Carpathians the Russians  continue to hold a firm grip on the  main chain, but news of any decisive action from' lhal quarter is  lacking, and the British press is  speculating as to the whereabouts  of Field Marshal von Hindcnberg,  lhe German commander of the  eastern front. All of which would  indicate lhal a new movement has  developed in the Carpathian arena  which hie public has not yet been  permilled  lo hear about.

APRIL 22, 1915  GETTING AFTER THE GRAFTERS  Premier Borden denounced in  the Dominion  House  lasl Thursday Mr. DcWill Foster,  Con-  ser-valivc M. P- for Kings, N.S., and W. F. Garland,  Conservative  M. P.  for  Carlclon county;  lhe former J-'or his connection wilh lhe purchase  of ancient ancl decrepit horses in Nova Scotia for  lhc Militia department, ancl lhc latter in regard  lo the field dressings con tract by which M. E.  Powell, a clerk in Garland's drug slorc, made $9,-  000.   Referring to Foster's transactions, Sir Robert said:    "I am bound lo say his explanation,  ii' it can be called an explanation, of his failure  to supervise lhe expenditure of money must be  regarded  far from satisfactory."    The Premier  censured  Garland  for  not only permitting but  encouraging Powell a young clerk in his employ,  to make a contract with the Government under  which in a few weeks hc profitlcd to thc extent  of ."pOjOOO.    "I cannot give any sanction to conduct of that character, because it is bound  lo  arouse a very grave suspicion, and any member  of  parliament in   connection  with  Government  contracts should keep himself above suspicion."  Sir Robert said hc owed a duly to his Government and country to express his grave disapproval of_lhc_condiict_ol' llie two members.  '==="PIerc'-an(l"lhcre  grafters "will" creep iTTltf"llKf  Conservative party as in all parties, but it cannot be said that lhc Conservative leaders or the  rank and file of the Conservative parly, will condone the oflenses committed or whitewash  lhe  graflers-   When these oll'enses against the parly  and the people have been uncarlhcd and laid bare  our  Government   leaders,   bolh  Provincial   and  Dominion, have promptly acted, and resignations  have been demanded.   It is this delcrniinalion on  the part of lhe Conservative leaders and party  generally to keep Conservalivism clean that has  inspired such confidence in the parly by the electors, and so long as this frank and open policy is  adhered lo by the parly, lhe people will give to  lhe Government their wholehearted support.  The Vancouver Sun is "somewhat of a newspaper chameleon. It can change coloir several  times between sunrise and sunset. When it was  announced that Mr. Basil Gardom had entered  the field in opposition to Mr. Price Ellison, on  April 2nd, the Sun sent this beam of hope into  its editorial columns: , -  "Reports from the Okanagan show that Mr. Price  Ellison's opponent, Mr. Basil Gardom, i.s certain lo  beat lhe ex-minister whose resignation he was responsible for by unearthing the 'Colony Farm Cattle  deal.' Mr. Gardom, though'running as Independent  Conservalive, is assured thc support already of a  number of prominent Liberals, while lhc leaders of  lhc Liberal parly here ancl in Victoria have wired  advising the local Liberals to combine wilh the Independent Conservatives in capturing thc scat. Mr.  Gardom is, moreover, well-known and very popular  throughout the Okanagan where he lived 16 years,  eight of which as Provincial constable.  "He is now one of the best known and most successful breeders of prize Holstein cattle in British  Columbia, having a large ranch at Dewdney. He first  became wealthy by lucky real estate ventures in Vancouver and Point Grey. Personally, a young man of  immense physique ancl a genial-but dominating personality, Mr. Ellison's opponent makes an ideal candidate for an agricultural riding like lhe North Okanagan, ancl he's already shown himself an effective  speaker ancl a first-class fighter."  This, apparently, was the honest opinion of the  Sun when it was written. But a few days later  thc Liberal political machine got busy, arid the  bright beams of hope that shone from the Sun  on April 2nd were dimmed in its issue of April  13lh, when il concluded a lengthy editorial with  these words:  "Mr. Ellison's request for re-election is brazen effrontery of Ihe most obvious nature, and wc are convinced that the electors of the Okanagan will refuse  to return to ollice a man who stands convicted of  trafficking in Government property for personal gain.  As for Mr. Gardom, whose only bid for the vote is  that he exposed a former friend, we feel that he cannot be taken very seriously."  Evidently thc Vancouver Sun does not know  at sunrise what its editorial opinion is going to  be a I sunset. What it said of Mr. Gardom's candi-  didature on April 2nd was, apparently, ils honest  opinion. What it said of Mr. Gardom's candidature on April 13th was, apparently, political  campaign argument put out to square itself with  the Liberals who are demanding lhat thc Liberal  candidate shall stand to the end and make the  campaign in the Northern Okanagan a three-  cornered fight. This will make Mr. Gardom's  chances stronger, for, inspiteol" thc work of the  party "machines," thc quiet vole of both parties,  will go to thc man whose persistent work and  upright fight has unearthed the Colony cattle  deal and exposed the trafficking of the ex-minister of finance and agricullurc.  If indications point to anything in the poultry  line, it is that thc poultry man who is able to hold  onto his flock, inspitc of the high cost of feed, will  be lhc lucky man next winter, when the price of  eggs will be high. Chich must be hatched from  six to seven months before you want eggs, therefore, if you would have layers next winter you  must get things inlo shape for early incubation.  LEARN TO LAUGH  For the polalo crop use, if possible, a clover  sod that has been manured (if necessary) the  previous season; manure applied lhe year of  planting favors tlie development of scab.  In these days of diiliculty a good laugh is a  great boon. And if you can make others laugh  you have won much more than medicine could  give and have been a Ionic to those about you.  Learn how to tell a story. A well-told story is  as-wclcomc"as"a"sunbcam4nnrsick"roonirVfccai_r  to keep your troubles to yourself. The world is  too busy to care for your ills or sorrows. Learn  to slop croaking. If you cannot sec any good in  the world, or in those round about you, keep thc  bad lo yourself. Don't focus so much attention  upon the weaknesses of others and you will learn  lo see the good in Ihem. And, really, no one  cares lo hear whether you have earache, headache or rheumatism. Don't cry. Tears do well  to wet the pages of novels, bul have no place in  real life. Learn to meet everybody with a smile,  stranger or friend- The good-humored man or  woman is always welcome everywhere, bul lhc  dyspeptic or the hypochondriac is not wanted  anywhere.

Since the merchants of Enderby have peli-  lioncd thc Cily Council to pass a by-daw lo force  Ihemselvcs to close their stores on one half day  per week, il is no*w up to the farmers to petition  the Government lo pass a law forbidding Ihem  lo work on their farms one half day a week.

GROWTH  OF RURAL DELIVERY  "The extraordinary growth of rural free mail delivery during the  last few years was shown by" a  statement made by Hoii. T. Chasc-  Casgrain in the House of Commons  some few days ago. The service  was-, inaugurated- in* 1908 after  years of agitation by the Conservative opposition. During the three  years from 1908 to 1911 some 614  routes were opened up, with" 10,-  015 boxes. Since 1911, under the  Conservative . policy, .this number  hasj'been increased4o no'less than  2,225 authorized routes, with 105,-  385 boxes.' Under.the present able  and energetic administration no  less, than. ,a thousand boxes a  week- arer-being-located,"- so-Vhal  -within a few more ycars of the  present, policy every farmer in  .Canada*'will have rural mail delivery. .   ,-  REDUCING   DANGER   POINTS  The tortuous ' and dangerous  mountainside road between Summerland and Peachland doubtless  will be but little used henceforth.  The . lakeshore drive between the  two towns, which has been under  construction for several years, has  been- so - far completed as to be  opened for Irallic. It is said, that  the road is nearly all well above  water level and will be a belter  road than that running south to  Penticton.���������������������������Summerland     Review.

The post ollice department gave notice a week or two  ago in connection wilh the War  Tax stamps to be affixed to all  .letters and postcards mailed in  Canada for delivery in Canada,  the United States or Mexico/ and  letters mailed in Canada for delivery in the United Kingdom and  British possessions generally, or  ��������������������������� wherever the two cenl rate applied, should in addition to the  ordinary postage carry a one ccnl  stamp as a war tax. Further notice is now given lo the effect that  postage stamps may be used for  the pavment of war duties on bank  cheques, bills of exchange, prom-  wbo wishes to push thc Province,  wonderfully rich as it is in almost  untouched natural resources, into  the position it should occupy in the  eyes of the world.

(1). Only.six days' notice of.the  holding of; the Convention was  given instead of the. necessary 14  days' notice.

(3) No Conservative association  for this riding was in existence  when the nomination was made.  This fact was admitted by Mr.  Cochrane, when, as chairman, he  explained thc difficulty, and asked  the meeting io nominate a chairman and secretary to act at the  convention. After the nomination'  was made such an association  was formed, bul it has not yet had  an opportunity to nominate a candidate. Mr. Ellison now poses as  the ollicial candidate and Mr. Gardom is called an Independent.  Both arc equally ollicial and equally independent, as bolh have been  nominated simply by some Conservatives in the riding.  TluTt thc whole,of.the executive  of the local association is not satisfied wit'h the action of the clique  is shown by lhe fact that Mr. Geo.  Heggie, who is vice-president, on  becoming aware after the convention, of a number of facts as to  their actions, and despite: the fact  lhat he had seconded the motion  to make Mr. Ellison's nomination  unanimous, has felt himself  bound to withdraw his support  from Mr. Ellison and openly espouse the cause of Mr. Gardom by  nominating him. No man takes  such a serious action���������������������������an action,  at that, "so' certain to lay 'him open  lo charges of desertion���������������������������unless  hc is forced thereto by a conscien-  lious^ conviction that his duty  leaves him no option.  I shall leave you to deal, if you  wish lo do so, with the action of  Mr. Cochrane and Mr. Shatford in  your section of the riding on the  day previous to the convention,  whatever that action was. I know  thai thev intervened in the interest  of  Mr." Ellison,   and   I   hold   that  their, action, whatever it was, was  most.improper,.nor can I hear of  their having ������������������������������������������������������'received any instruc-.  tions from their executive to so in-  Ircyene.'- No officials, of one local  association should actively intervene, in the proceedings of another.

V Although  none  of  the": local; executive--would' publicly  express any opinion as 'to whether  Mr. Ellison, was the best candidate  we- could get,; arid .all��������������������������� refused' to  state What" the  explanation; was  which Mr. Ellison '"lia'd given-, them  of  his" dealings, with  Government  properly���������������������������-they - c'laini.ed    that,   it  was  confidential,  which  is; manir  festly absurd in a matter of. public  iniportanceV-yet Mr.  Shatford,  after the .meeting of local delegates  atvwhich Mr. Ellison's nomination  had  been' approved,  staled   specie  fically   to   mc- that   he; knew  Mr.  Ellison was not the best candidate  ���������������������������that    there    were* others .who  could   poll   txl least'*.-.30" per 'cent  more* yotesthan -Mr.''Ellison' would  ever poll.   Is this parly loyalty? : .  As regards the charges brought  against Mr.. Ellison  in.the  House,  the   only   explanation   which   lias  been  given  in   publi'c'is that  Mr.  Ellison -lost money over thc deal.  The-locakexeculivc^sayMhcy-have  received    a    further    explanation  which is satisfactory to them, but  thev refuse to divulge what it is.  From   what  I  have  been   able  to  learn of the case, I do not for an  instant  credit  Mr.   Ellison's  statement   regarding  the  bad   bargains  hc got, nor thc losses he made, bul,  even if he did make ii loss, I can  not see how that fact would lessen  his offense.    He certainly went into lhc deal with a* view-to-making  a  profit,, not a loss.    But I  claim  that he had no right to go into il  al all.    1 do not know what oath  a Minister of thc Crown takes on  assuming   oflice,   but   I   do   know  lhat   no- mayor,   reeve,  councillor,  or even school trustee could have  anv such dealings wilh his municipality    without     forfeiting    his  seal, quite irrespective of profit or  loss, and I  cannot believe  that  a  lower standard of public morality  is demanded of a  Minister of the  Crown than of a school trustee.  Had" Mr. Ellison's resignation  been forced through a difference  in opinion on a matter of public  policy, no question could have  arisen as to his eligibility as a.candidate. But rcliral through wrongful dealing with Government prop-,  ertv is quite another matter. That  his'colleagues were convinced that  Mr. .Ellison was unworthy of support is clearly shown by the fact  that not one of them spoke for him  in the House, and lhal his resignation was promptly accepted. His  colleagues must have had access to  all sources of information, including Mr. Ellison's verbal explanations, and must have known  that thc acceptance of his resignation al such a crisis could be taken  as nothing but a condemnation on  Iheir part of his dealings. Mr.  Ellison has nol, so  far, attempted  in public to give any explanation  of his" deal olher than the .explanation.given in Victoria. So long as  the explanation given to the .executive: of the 'Vernon association is  treated as confidential, the public  must.treat it as non-cxislent. Ancl  yet, we.are asked, without any further explanations,, to accept as* a  candidate, a., man whom his colleagues, with such JargeiVsources  of informaiiori* than wc-have, did  not, consider, worthy of support.  It  is  an-.outrage.,    A .slalemenl  has been made,"I.think.by"Mr"..Ellison, that'he retired from oflice because his-private-'affairs, were suffering on account of his prolonged  absences. . from    home.   : Are  .wc  re.ally... expected, -to   swallow   this,  statement?.: When ."Mr. -Ellisonyrc-  sigiiedliis.portfplioj the elections  were..supposed -:to,.bc- coming, off  Avithih.: a,, few. \yeek.s,.\' "-The "advantage', to. him ^of goingyloathe'���������������������������.'poll -.'.as"  an;.'*_'acc'i'edited ���������������������������.:.��������������������������� MinisieiV7qf-:I'������������������the'  .Crbwn-varid*rvas.;\st|.lU"/hcceptab.le���������������������������M6;  hisyicplleagues'/arid,^^  them,':. ..despite,;.-lithe Vcharge's-Vliud  a'g'ainst;him';-,isy so;,:obvipus';that;--it  is'-''inTp6"ssible.:-"-ta'.*b;eHev'e:."th"at''L"ariy'  'hi an^^ would' willingly Vahd.'.. of "his  owh'iwill-; fo'rgb^it.

".  . No,..sir;, the inference is unmistakable.    Mr.  Ellison's  resignation-  was not. voluntary, though il was  allowed,'* as-is not unusual in such  cases, to take a, voluntary form.  If Mr. Ellison had been wise;1 he.  would, immediately after receding the nomination, have retired  from the contest with such-'credit  as the nominalion gave him, and  thc .unfortunate affair would then  have been allowed to sink into ob-  li vi on. __.
