Vernon has been chosen as the  site for the main summer camp to  be established in thc interior for  tbe troops of thc third overseas  contingent now undergoing training at Victoria and New Westminster. Colonel A. T. Ogilvic,  district oflicer commanding, visited the Okanagan last week and  completed preliminary arrangements for establishing the camp.  It is  said   that   all   the  infantry  troops will be under canvass by the  end of the month.  C G. Piper docs not believe in  sitting do^vn and wailing for business to come to him. He is* a live  wire with painting proclivities,  and he- advertises t for jobs���������������������������and  gets 'cm. "If you haven't the cash,"  hc says, "what will you trade?" It  is needless to add that he is seldom  out of work..  The steady revival bf the lumber  industry'in the coast district is reflected in the returns of the government scaler. No less than 45,-  895,000 feet of logs-were scaled for  royally in that district, last month.  This includes 2,270,00.0 feet of  logs which were exported to Washington mills, principally.cedar for  use in making shingles.'        -     - -.  By an edict issued by the King,  there wilPbe ho public celebrations held this year on his birthday.

It is reported that the road foremen in this district have received  imperative instructions from the  road superintendent that all repair work required on road making implements and machinery is  to be sent lo Vernon; and that no  repairing is to be made in Enderby  without an order from the superintendent's oflice. It, might be'as well  for us to call attention to thc fact  that there are no Government re-  pair-shops-in=*"thc="Okanaganr*-and  that thc blacksmith, shops of Enderby are as capable of doing this  work as the shops of Vernon, and  that what road money has been  voted for Enderby district ought  to be spent here, for repairs as  well as for supplies and labor.  LATEST WAR SUMMARY  A despatch from Rotterdam under date of May.. 11th stales that the  German advance "against Yyres has  been foiled, although they are still  endeavoring to hasten a grip in a  half circle around the town to compel evacuation by the "Allies.  A bold countcrslrokc'Vm ihe*pari  of the Allies contributed greatly to  check the desperate attempt to  force a - passage ilirouqh to . the  channel ports.

The Salmon Arm .Observer con_-  concludcs a lengthy reference lo  the enforcement of the Thursday  afternoon holiday by thc Enderby  City  Council, with  these words:  "It appears incongruous for the  merchants to. ask for thc enforcement of a mid-week half holiday  when lhc banks, schools and all  olher lines of indusli*>'. are in.  operation.-.; If a half holiday is to  be arranged, then why not inakc;  it on a day which would be acceptable to lhc public? A Saturday  half holiday is observed almost  universally and il is the only half-  holiday which seems to best fil  in wilh thc requirements of the  public generally. On Saturday  afternoon the banks close, the  schools are closed ancl the people  generally speaking, have the holiday spirit."  .-J,'A.,:yE|  - -ito -_^t"_ I  N -1  Now that wc have the Thursday  afternoon half-holiday, can't somebody start the fad of working off  lhc leisure hours fixing up the  river front; filling in back of the  cribbing; levelling ofT and putting  it into a grass-bank for pleasure  seekers instead of a dump-hole for  refuse?  Have you tried those delicious ice  cream sodas at Joe's? THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, May 13, 1915  '-V  haps, an isolated case or two where some cus-  lomcr came in from the country and had to be  supplied or be seriously inconvenienced. And,  alter all, il' a merchant isn't in business to accommodate his customers, what is he lhere for? It  is all very well to talk of the half-holiday need of  our over-worked merchants, but there is another  side lo lhc question, and an important one���������������������������the  accommodation ol/thq public.  The enforcement .'of the by-law asked for by  lhe merchanls cannol make a hall-holiday out of  it. The schools cannot close, nor lhc banks, lhe  public oil ices or olher businesses. All lhe by-law  amounts lo is lhis: lhat lhc cily is asked to stand  lhe cost of pulling Ihe law on lhc books and of  enforcing it���������������������������nol against lhc public nor in the  interest of the public, bul against individuals in  business and in lhc inleresl of individuals. The  by-law does nol lill a public need, is not a public  convenience, and cannot win public inleresl. II  is distinctly class legislation, and the cosl of pulling il on lhe books and enforcing il should be  borne by lhc individuals demanding il, and not  by lhe public imbencfitlcd by il.

MAY 13, 1915  VALUES OF FARM LAND  Unquestionably one of thc mosl serious drawbacks lhal lhe Okanagan Valley has lo recover  from, is inllaled real cslatc prices. When we  consider lhc prices at which farm lands have  been held���������������������������as well as all olher classes ol' land  bought and sold in lhe Okanagan���������������������������and compare  these prices with I hose of olher districts far more  advanced, wc cannol but realize thai lhere musl  come a readjustment of prices before there can  be any.appreciable advance. Raw bush land in  the Okanagan has been held higher in price lhan  lhc average value of farm land held for agricultural purposes for lhe whole of Canada, including lhe value of dwelling houses, farms, slablcs  and olher farm buildings. According lo stalis-  lics gathered by lhe Dominion Government this  average price is $38.41 per acre.  We do nol wish lo heal down prices of farm  lands in lhc Okanagan- We fully appreciate lhe  equable climatic condilions found here���������������������������something superior lo lhal found in almost any oilier  agricullural dislrict in Canada. But wc cannol  afford lo add loo much lo lhe real land values for  climate if we are lo bring hither the class of  airricullurisls needed���������������������������men who know exactly  what an acre of land can be made lo produce.  Our equable climatic conditions are, in a very  large measure, oll'sel by our undeveloped.market  condilions, and until ������������������������������������������������������'Ihesc. .condilions' are very  -m u eh���������������������������i m p r- o ved=-we=ea nn o f=a If o rd=lo=lI ir ow-\s o'  much for climalc inlo land prices. The average  agricullural land values in Alberla in 1 DM'were  $21 per acre, while in'British Columbia Ihe acre  price was $150. In British Columbia this high  value is i\uv to orcharding, ordinary agriculture  being subsidiary to I'ruil cullure. We leave il lo  our I mil growers themselves if this wide difference in values is nol loo great.     ���������������������������  When your good is evil spoken of and your  opinions ridiculed, and you lake it all in patience  and loving silence, that is Victory-  SINKING OF THE LUSITANIA  MID-WEEK HALF HOLIDAY  The mid-week half-holiday by-law comes inlo  effect 'today. Knderby is lhe only lown in lhe  Province, so Far as we can learn,* which has a  by-law of lhis nature in force- In various olher  towns in lhe Okanagan Valley Ihe iiHTchjinIs*  organization has the mid-week early closing idea  in vogue, where lhe merchanls. by common  agreement, lake a half-holiday Thursday afternoon, but in no olher lown have lhe merchanls  played lhe joke on themselves by asking lhe cily  lo enforce lhe half-holiday against themselves,  which Ihcy themselves could nol or would nol  comply wilh. We hope this half-holiday by-law  will nol be found lo be a boomerang by our  merchanls. Bul now lhal it is passed il should  be rigidly enforced, cost whal il may. The way  to gel rid of a bad law is to enforce il. And, since,  lhe merchanls have asked lhe cily to force them  to refuse lo,do-business.on Thursday afternoon,  which Ihey would not do of Iheir own accord, il  is up to the cily to make Ihem toe lhe mark.  During Ihe pasl three or four seasons, when  the merchants, by common consent and agreement, were endeavoring lo make lhe mid-week  half-holiday "slick,"' il was claimed by some lhal  lhis one or lhal one insisted on doing a back-door  business during Ihe early-closing hours. Wc do  nol believe lhere was much of lhis done.    Per-  War at best is savagery. Defend it as wc may,  plead justice as wc must, it is, afler all, only the  right of brute force. Thc sinking of the Lusilania  will) ils awful loss of life, will prove only in incident in this monstrous crime against civilization.  By no argument can the Germans claim the  right lo overstep the laws of war as they have.  But after all has been said, and the Kaiser has  been damned by each and sundry, what can there  come of il? The right of might holds sway. It  is not likely the British naval authorities left anything undone to prevent the catastrophy. It is  probableretalitory measures will be taken in order  to punish the high-seas pirates, but this only  means more destruction and more loss of lives.  This is no time for frothy denunciation. Action is  needed. If the Allies could blow those German  submarines out of the water and destroy every  enemy battleship it would be more to the point. If  words were bullets the Kaiser*- would have been  dead long ago.  What action thc United Slates will lake must  depend upon what that country can do. This  may be much and it may be lillle. This much is  certain: lhc "paper blockade" lliat we have all  scoffed at is proving more frightful than anyone  imagined it could prove. It may be'depended  upon lhal what America can do will be done, but  lhis cannol bring back the lives of those who arc  lost or repair llie breach in lhc laws against humanity. If it is proven thai lhe Lusilania was  carrying two of Ihosc 5(T-foot guns lhal some of  ,lhc "big* liners have been canning from New  York lo England for use against the enemy, or  if she was loaded wilh olher munitions of war  for lhe Allies, then might be found some technical excuse for lhe awful crime. But no excuse,  technical or otherwise, can exhonerale.  ft all goes lo prove lhat a nation or an empire  fighting for ils existence will stop al nolhing io  defeat its adversary.. And all our boaslcd civilization and culture only makes for cruelty when  haughty pride is in lhc saddle.

From  the first reports it was evident all  the passengers and crew had been  saved, but later reports indicate  that about two-thirds of the persons on hoard lost their lives.  Thc number of passengers is  given by the Cunard representative  in New York as 1,254, and of thc  crew as GG5, a total of 1,919. Thc  number of survivors now accounted for is 703. This indicates  a death list of 1216..  Hopes that the list of persons  saved may be materially increased  were dashed by an announcement  from the British Admiralty, that-all  but one of the rescue fleet which  put out from Queertstowh had reported ^ and that there was little  prospect of news of further survivors. * Nevertheless' inquiries are  being made all along thc coast in  the  hope that other, rescues may  German representative at Washington, warning anyone not to take  passage on the Lusitania, and  numerous telegrams were handed  to prominent passengers on board  the ship as she was aboul to sail  telling them thc vessel was to be  torpedoed and repealing the warning previously published.

Ambassador Gerard at Berlin  was directed to make inquiry bf  the German government concerning the sinking of the Lusitania.

We were going at about 16 knots  and   were; seven  ,oi;   eight   miles  southyof  Galjey   Head .when   we  were struck by one torpedo arid in  a'minute or.two. afterward by two  more.     The   first   explosion   staggered  us and. the others finished  us, shattring the giant ship.    The  Lusitania disappeared in 20 minutes after the first torpedo struck.  The  passengers  were  surprisingly  cool.   Nearly all the first-class passengers  were   drowned.    Most, of  those" saved were second and third*  class- passengers. .

The article .was.one of the strongest and  sanest the department has put out.  It did not bubble over with.this  buncombe about what our troops  are going to do to Kaiser W .lliam,  how,   the,    Canadian'    boys     are  slaughtering the Germans by thousands and walking to  Berlin  over  mountains' of slain.    It told what  any sane person .ought to be. able  to  see.. It. told of*, the  "situation  growing  more  arid-** more   intense  and  critical   day: by., day."    That  Great Britain is faced not alone by  outside    enemies,, rbut, ? by.. labor  troubles and by-lack of. those immense . internal   resources  in  the  matter   of. food   production   that  Germany, and   .Austria - Hungary  possess.   It told how, England cannot feed herself, and is.-compelled  to rely largely-on, other countries  for a supply of the, necessaries of  life.    The   article   pointed   to   thc  fact that "every man, woman and  child, from, the -Kaiser down, has  been put on rations," and drew a  lesson   from   this   for  every  Brit-,  ishcr,  that  this did   not show so  much a weakness in the enemy as  his strength.

Some -of our English, friends  have a heap lo learn yet aboul Canada and patriotism, and while we  are on this subject we would like  lo point lo some of this "heap."  In. lhc first place, we Canadians do  not have to be fed up on thousands  of Germans killed before breakfast  to keep our courage up. We do not  have to have our eyes blinded to  facts by-thc war office in order to  keep us from getting the woolies.  Wc try to look facts squarely in lhc  face and then shoot straight. Wc  hide nothing and haven't anything  lo hide. Wc can talk facts with  the enemy ancl face them, and we  do not measure our patriotism on  the percentage-coupon basis. We  do not hide our heads in the sand  and declare Britain is having or  going to have a walk-over. But  when it comes to fighting���������������������������well,  our Canadian boys will show you.

Editor Enderby Press:  Sir: Il is nol my practice to  write tellers lo lhc press, but, as  your paper has been the medium  through which considerable correspondence has already passed  relative lo certain misunderstandings which at present seem to  exist in Ihe ranks of the Conservative parly of the Norlh Okanagan,  I should like lo correct false impressions which are bound to have  | arisen from a letter in your last  :issue signed by Mr. Davies as secretary of one of the Enderby Conservative   Associations.  Whal Mr. Davies calls "facts"  your headline rightly terms "Another View of It." One of the fads  is an attempted explanation of the  reason which impelled Mr. Cochrane and Mr. Shatford, the respective president and secretary of the  Vernon association, to foregather  in Enderby on Ihe eve of thc recent  convention and juggle wilh delegates who had been regularly appointed in open meeting. Apparently Mr. Davies does not give the  Vernon officials credit for being  able to explain their own actions.  As secretary of lhe District association, and in close touch with the  Enderby associations, I had no  official knowledge of any trouble  in lhc appointment of delegates.  Among the "facts" Mr. Davies  overlooked the following: (a) The  sojourn of lhe Vernon officials in  Enderby was entirely gratuitous,  as they were nol invited by either  of thc two associations there to arbitrate on any alleged dispute, nor  were they asked to go by their  local association. (b) Any trou^  hie or dispute between the two as-  jsociations in Enderby was nol  j remedied, or even affected, by thc  i kind-hearted delegation, and as a  mailer of fact it still exists, (c)  Delegates from Enderby were arranged lo represent such districts  as Sicamous, -Seymour Arm and  Celesta Creek, and even those  delegates already appointed by thc  Enderby associations were man-  oeuvered wilh on the eve of the  convention.  11 is only fair to the outlying  districts of Sicamous, Seymour  Arm and Celesta Creek, to slate  that 1 forwarded notices and voting papers relative to the convention to Mr. Davies on the Friday  preceding lhc convention, on the  clear ancl expressed understanding  between us thai he would see that  had not been notified, ancl that  they were represented at thc convention by delegates appointed in  a most irregular manner���������������������������if it can  be said that they were really appointed at all.  Mr. Davies refers to the right of  his association to appoint delegates  from Enderby, Grindrod, Mara and  Mabel Lake, but the Conservatives  in each of those districts have the  right to get together and form separate associations of their own and  appoint their own delegates if  Ihcy so desire. The more local associations wc have linked in the  District association, the stronger  and more-efficient -will our organization be, and, as thc executive of  tlie District association consists of  delegates from every local, it is the  proper forum in which to discuss  all matters relative lo the welfare  of lhc party and lo settle all disputes.  As soon as thc dale of the election is fixed, it is my intention to  call together thc District association, but upon thc request of any  three associations, I will call a  meeting at any time.  Yours, etc.,  Hugh Hi-ccue,  Secretary North Okanagan District  Conservative   Association.

In a lenglhy review of the work  of Thc Follies company in-one of  Ihe Vancouver papers, the following extract appears: "If last evening's performance of The Follies'  may be taken as a fair reflection of  their ability as entertainers, then  let il be said with all emphasis  lhat lo stay away from these performances if one can possibly attend is lo stultify one's soul and to  dwarf the finer sensibilities, in thc  development of which good entertainments play such a leading role.'  The cast of "The Follies" includes Mr. B. C. Hilliam, the well-  known author and musician, Miss  Annie Lochead, the soprano of the  Pacific Coast, Norah Hayden, Miss  Milli'ccnt Ward, of the F. R. Benson  company, Victor Dyer, of the Norman V. Norman company, and  Henry Anslie, al* thc Criterion,  London. "Thc Follies in France,"  is the title of the sketch given by  the company. Playgoers who fail  to see this company will indeed be  missing a treat.  Eighty-five per cent of all  headaches are the result of eyestrain. Are you troubled that"way?  If so consult S. L.
