L. Ruttan appeared to place  before the Council  such information as he had in his possession in  the  matter  of the  sand  taken  in  connection with tlie erection of the  Fortune   school,   and   returned   to  the city sand pile by him, or men  in. his   employ.V Mr.   Ruttan   explained   that  Mr.  Blanchard   had  kept  a  record of all sand  drawn  to the school ground, and also that  returned to the sand pile, and his  figures , were , taken,   from   these  records and included all that the  men who drew the sand were paid  for by him.

If at any time  he, could-be of service in furnishing the Council any information  he was at their service.  Further    consideration    of    the  matter was laid over.  The   Council   then   took  up  thc  petition received from the busiriess  men  of Enderby  asking the  City  to pass a by-law making Thursday  afternoon of each week a holiday.  The  question  of the  insufficiency  of the  number of signers  to  the  petition was brought up, and Mr.  Billings, of the law firm of Billings  & Cochrane, who happened to be  in Enderby, was called before the  Council  to  give  advice as  to  the  status  of the  four stores run by  Chinamen.     He   held   that   these  must   be   considered    as   "Shops"  within the meaning of the Act, and  JUUlLcss^the^peJ i t i on JiacUon Jj uthe_  names    of   three-fourths    of    thc  tradesmen,  including  the   Chinese  stores,  thc  Council  could   not   go  any farther in the matter until additional names were added to thc  petition.    The  question  was  laid  over.  city intake by the Dominion hy-  drographic department for the  cily, but no action was taken,  pending further information required by the aldermen.  ,The petition from the tradesmen  asking the Council to put through  the Thursday afternoon holiday  by-law was taken up, it having had  the signatures of the Chinese shop  owners added to it, and'- thc required by-law was put through its  firsthand second reading.   '  The   by-law   requires   that   on  each   and   every   Thursday 'afternoon between the months of May  and October, both inclusive, every  "shop" situate within the corporate  limits   of  the   city,   shall   be  closed and remain closed from the  hour of 12.30 in the afternoon until  the hour of mid-night, except on a  Thursday of any-week in  which  there shall  occur any . other, legal  holiday  or  half-holiday .than   the  half-holiday herein provided., *,  ;  The 'by-law permits the supplying of medicincs,-drugs.dr������������������nicdical  appliances,   or   the .'supplying  of  any other article in case of emergency  arising-from, sickness,   ail-,  ment __r."_.eath.y ..

Thc usual penalty clause is  tached  to the by-law, making  offence  punishable  by  a  fine  exceeding $25.  . for  at-  the  not  On Tuesday evening the Council  met in regular session. His Worship thc Mayor was in thc chaii\  and Aldermen Grant, Dill and  Harlry  around  the  table.  Mr.   H.   G.   Davies,   representing  thc Enderby Growers' Association,  appeared before thc board re. action  now pending against  the Association    for   trading   without   a  licence.    He said the Growers' Association was prepared lo pav lhc  traders' licence  for 1!)J5,  but objected   to paying the  licence past  due   for   19M.      He   declared   thc  Growers'    Association   was   chartered   by   thc   Provincial   Government to carry on  a general  business  in flour,  feed,  etc., and   thc  directors, did not feel that the Association could be held subject lo  pay    the    traders'    licence.      The  members of the  Council took the  position that, while they were prepared   to    admit    the   Association  was chartered to carry on a general   business  in   flour,   feed,  etc.,  there   was   nothing  either  in   the  charter of the Association nor the  Municipal Clauses Act under which  the   Association   could   claim   the  right to enter the field as retailers  to the general  public in competition   with   other   regular   retailers  licenced by the city, without paying a  trader's licence.      And  tlie  Council   did   nol  feel   disposed   to  stop    the    action    now    pending  against the Association for trading  without a licence.,,  Tenders were received for reading the water guage placed at the  On the second reading of the  by-law a ratepayer, speaking for  that part of the Enderby public  not represented on the tradesmen's  pjeti.lion^asked^the���������������������������Coun-ciLto^coJi-.  sider the proposition well befo're  finally passing thc by-law. They  were, as representatives, of- the  people of Enderby, putting on the  statute book a law forcing a half-  holiday upon thc public on a day  which, while convenient to the  tradesmen, was not acceptable nor  practicable  to  the  great  majority  of the people of the town and district.   He asked that the matter be  considered   from  a broader viewpoint than merely the convenience  of the tradespeople.    If a holiday  meant   anything,   it   should   mean  a day set apart for the intermingling of the people of the town and  district���������������������������a day  that all could  enjoy and participate in.   As a practical    workable    proposition    the  speaker.asked thc members to look  up and down the Valley and see in  their own  minds the  failure that  the mid-week holiday has been the  pasl two seasons.   He declared that  it   had   almost   completely   wiped  out the holiday and sporting spirit  of the people.   He called attention  to the absurdity of attempting to  enforce  a   mid-week  holiday  law  with the public schools in opera?  tion  and  all other industries and  public business running full blast,  and nobody taking any interest in  the day.    Parents could not enter  into the spirit of the day with their  children   at. school;. He  believed  the mid-week holiday idea, which  seems to be ih vogue only in the  Okanagan   Valley,, and   not : elsewhere, had amply proved;'a failure,  and he earnestly ,argued in- favor   of  making it a week-end holiday instead���������������������������a    Saturday'   half-holiday;  whcn'ithe schools are closed,-the  banks, are   closed-.and; air public  business is suspended.'

Oii Saturday everybody  can take advantage^!' the'day, and  there-is some holiday spirit, whereas, on Thursday there is no holiday  feeling na'd cannot be because very-  few people can or care to take advantage of  the   half-holiday.   The  weekly half-holiday,'he contended,  I was a most valuable institution, too  1 valuable to be spoiled by attempting  the' impossible  in   connection  with it.    "  Thc id^as advanced were agreed  to by the Aldermen present, and  his worship the Mayor hoped to  hear more from the people in connection with:the matter. As for  passing the Thursday half-holiday  by-law, hc said the Council would  have to comply with the petition  of the tradesmen. But he believed  if the matter were given due consideration, the tradesmen would be  agreeable=to_.Satu_day_a f lcriioon,=i il  it were acceptable to the majority  of the people. He hoped to see the  question taken up by the press, for  hc felt that something should be  done to bring about a better feeling  with regard to thc half-holiday,  and more unanimity of action in  this regard between thc various  towns of the Valley.

APRIL 29, 1915  THE WEEKLY HALF-HOLIDAY  The businessmen of Enderby have done the  public a good turn in applying to thc Cily Council asking lhal august body to pass a by-law  .making Thursday afternoon a hall-holiday. In  the past, the merchants have arbitrarily combined to close their places of business mid-  wcckly Tor a half-holiday. The mid-week hall-  holiday has not been a success, owing lo the fact  that it has nol met with popular favor, bill, as it  has never been made a public issue, no body has  seen fit to question the right of thc business  people lo run their own business. Similar action  has been taken in lhc other towns in thc Valley,  with similar results.   But now the merchants are  of home and business. Thursday afternoon, or  Wednesday afternoon, nobody can go anywhere  wilh any degree of leisure, and few families feel  disposed to hurry away to the woods on Sunday  morning and have to hurry back Sunday evening. With the week-end half-holiday people  would be able to get some benefit out of it; with a  mid-week half holiday nobody seems to gel any  real good from it. Under the mid-week half-  holiday wc have seen local sports in the Valley  go to pieces; there is not a town in the Okanagan  lhat can today boast of a home team, cither in  fool-ball, baseball or lacrosse. Why? One has  bul to allcnd lhc mid-week half-holiday games  for an answer. Instead of there being hundreds  of enthusiastic spectators and noisy small boys  in attendance, as of yore, there,, arc more frequently less lhan 25 spectators���������������������������and fewer small  bows. And what is any kind of a game worth  without the small boy lhere to do thc rooting?  TJic merchants complain that they cannot be  expected lo stop business on Saturday, their big  day. It might be observed, that this half-holiday  business, to be acceptable, must be a means to an  end. Il musl bring thc people together and develop a homc-fccling toward thc lown, and a  personal interest in ils development, social and  otherwise, and create a feeling of mutual interest  between the town and district. If this is not dene  then the half-holiday becomes a purely com-  mcrcailizcd proposition ancl might better be discontinued altogether. A week-end half-holiday  would, wc believe, bring about greater travel between thc Valley towns, bring hundreds of  farmers into town who never go in on thc midweek half-holiday, and would, generally, revive  the old spirit of fellowship and friendly rivalry  lhat existed here before thc mid-week half-holiday came into existence.  Wc believe there is much more in this weekly  half-holiday proposition than thc merchants of  thc Valley seem to think.- Saturday is the day  when most farmers come to town. As for thc  merchants experiencing any business loss by  Iheir closing Saturday noon, wc believe this is  all a mistake. The Saturday trading would be  done before noon; lhere would be a general good  feeling, and then the farmers and thc public  generally could be given something to entertain  Them at thc recreation ground in the afternoon,  wilh lillle or no cost attached to it. Under the  mid-week half-holiday our recreation grounds  have become unused, except as pasture ground  for callle. Our home baseball teams are given  no encouragement���������������������������they will not play to empty  benches and bunch grass vista.  If the City Council���������������������������representing the people���������������������������.  is lo be asked to make a weekly half-holiday,  and lo enforce it, then let it be a weekly half-  holiday lhat would be acceptable to thc people  and nol one that suits only a small fraction of  the community.

In making the request they throw thc question open lo discussion,  and il is lo be hoped lhe Cily Council will weigh  the matter well before deciding. In asking for  a Thursday half-holiday thc merchants freely  admit thai on that day there is the least business  of any day in the week, therefore it would be  more convenient and more economical for Ihem  ESSEX FARMERS AND WHEAT  Wc arc prone lo believe, at times, that there  is not much large-acreage farming in England;  lhat thc "market gardener" of the favored spots  of thc British Isle, is a man of small parts, small  acreage, and small ways of handling his produce.  Herein lies our greatest error. There is not, of  course, thc immense tracts of land in England  devoted lo wheat, such as wc find in the great  wheat bells of Manitoba and the Northwest Pro-  jvinccs, but, here and there in England, there are  lo close on lhal day.    Bul lhere is another side (wheal farms of pretentious size, and diversified  King Edward Hotel,  P. H. MURPHY  Proprietor  Enderby  lo the question that musl be considered, and yet  .seemingly, has been disregarded. Unless a half-  holiday can be made a public convenience and to  _JUJapublicjiccd^iLcan never be made popular.  and unless il is popular it will never bc^rcceivctl  with favor by the people. Can a mid-week half-  holiday be made popular���������������������������can il be made to fill  a public need? If not, then thc sooner wc quit  trying to enforce it lhe heller for all concerned.  Wc have watched closely tlie mid-week half-  holiday efforts which have been made in the Valley.   We have seen Vernon, Kelowna. and other  towns provide expensive.attractions in  the way  Virbifseiiaily  .season,'these organizations have meant heavy  loss lo the promoters. This year, it is doubtful  if one of the larger towns will spend a dollar on  a baseball team. And no olher allraetion can  be thought of thai would draw anything like the  support. Therefore we must conclude that the  fault does not lie. in the attraction provided so  much as in the (lay.  We must weigh the question on lhe scale of  public need, and opposite the weight of the merchants' wish place lhe weight of lhe public good.  How can lhe business people of the Valley make  a mid-week half-holiday popular when the people of the Valley cannol lake advantage of lhe  day? With the schools open, the banks open,  and all olher lines of industry in operation, how  can lhe merchants make lhe people accept a midweek half-holiday? If we are lo be asked lo  make a half-holiday by law. then why nol make  il on a day lhat would be acceptable lo thc public? A Saturday half-holiday is observed almost  universally, and il is the only half-holiday which  seems lo lit in wilh the requirements of the people. On Saturday afternoon the banks close, all  public business is suspended, and the schools arc  elosed. On lhat day the people generally have  the holiday-feeling.

PIPER, City Decorator  Perhaps it is natural for the  Vernon News to make the best of  a bad case, and we do not have lo  feel angry when it slurs thc intelligence of the people of the Okanagan by inferring in its lofty way  that they believe the argument it  puts forth in defense of Mr. Ellison  and his- "cull" cattle deal. However, since it puts forth editorially  the following facts, and declares  that Ihcsci facts prove abundantly  Mr. Ellison's innocence, it cannot  be considered "bad form" to reproduce its defence, with just a touch  of criticism of its position:  It says that "the deal was transacted through the medium of correspondence, Mr. Ellison accepting  the price set on thc animals by the  farm management." In this connection, Mr. Gardom has made  this statement in print, which has  not been denied either by Mr. Ellison or ihe, farm management: "I  have seen the list with valuations  reduced for Mr. Ellison's benefit of  each Holstein-Friesian animal (in  shipment of June 15th, 1912) and  the total was $2,175, not <-*)475, and  the cow Meta, shipped August 13,  1912, was valued at ������������������500, not ������������������75,"  as claimed by Mr. Ellison.  It claims, further, that the animals were considered "culls" by  the farm officials, who, were  glad to get rid of them at Hie price  for which they were disposed of  lo Mr. Ellison, and that "Mr.  Doherty, the superintendent, considered that he had made a very  excellent bargain from the farm  official's point of view with Mr.  Ellison."  It claims, further, ."that the stock  received by Mr. Ellison was of  such inferior quality as to draw  forth from him, after its arrival  in Vernon, a strong-protest against  having such stuff unloaded upon  him." -  In: this-connection, it would be  interesting to hear what the"farm  ollicials"..have  to'..say'rr-the   same  officials 'who  paidy-'fronr $250   to  .$500 for the, "culls"ythey. were glad  to unload upon Mr. Ellison at from  ������������������25 to $75. .Arid-, since-all-'of these  cows give birth ,to~ calves- by the  best registered bulls on the Colony  farm six months after Mr. Ellison  got theni, it would be interesting  to know if the farm officials gave  this."service" in order to bring the  value of the "culls" up to ������������������25 and  ������������������75.   In this section of the Okanagan   it  is  a  very  ordinary  scrub  cow that will not bring ������������������65 or ������������������75,  even in these days of financial depression.    And, as Mr. Ellison has  admitted   on   the   public  platform  that he sold calves from these cows  at ������������������125 apiece, it does not appear  that    he . considered    them    such  worthless    "culls"    as    to . "bring  forth  a  strong protest  from  him  against having such stuff unloaded  Hjpon-^hiniT-'^^We^do^not^believe  there   are  many  stockmen   in  the  Okanagan who would protest very  seriously  if  such  an  "nuloading"  were thrust upon them.  The News claims, further, "that  so far from -reaping any advantage  from the deal, or getting the better  of the Government in the transaction, he (Mr. _Ellison), suffered  heavy financial loss thereby."  Perhaps this accounts for thc  high value put upon thc calves by  Mr. Ellison���������������������������to recoup his heavy  losses. Really, the opinion of thc  meeting at Enderby when Mr. Ellison made his position clear and  acquitted himself, was thai Mr.  Ellison's heavy financial losses  were not so much thc result of thc  deal as Ihey were of the deal being  found out.  "Finally," thc News says, "no  unbiased person can, after a study  of the whole case, fail to reach the  .conclusion that, while Mr. Ellison  made a mistake in entering into  such a deal he was not in the  slightest degree actuated by any  unworthy or dishonorable motive."  Perhaps hot. But Mr. Ellison  must have gone into the deal to  make money out of it. Otherwise  why should he have made such a  "strong protest against having such  'stuff" unloaded upon him���������������������������and at  prices less than half what an ordinary scrub cow would cost, in  the Okanagan? The best reply  we have seen to this contention is  given by Mr. Kidston in his open  letter on the subject.    Hc says:  As regards the charges brought  against Mr. Ellison in the House,  the only, explanation which has  been given in public is that Mr.  Ellison lost money over the deal.  The local executive say they have  received a further explanation  which is satisfactory to them, but  they 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  he got, nor thc losses he made, but,  even if hc did make a loss, I can  not see how that fact would lessen  his offense. He certainly went into thc deal with a view to making  a profit, not a loss. But I claim  that he had no right to go into it  at all. 1 do not know what oath  a Minister of the Crown takes on  assuming office, but I do know  that no mayor, reeve, councillor,  or even school trustee could have  any such dealings with his municipality without forfeiting his  seat, quite irrespective of profit or  loss, and I canpot believe that a-  lower standard bf 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 retiral through wrongful dealing with Government property is quite another matter. That  his colleagues were convinced thai  Mr. Ellison was unworthy of support is clearly shown by the fact  that not one of them spoke for him  in the House, and that his resignation was promptly accepted: His  colleagues must" have had access to  all sources of information, including Mr. Ellison's verbal explanations, and musl have known  that the acceptance of his resignation at such a crisis could be taken  as nothing but a condemnation on  their  part   of  his   dealings.
