The road  in its present condition "becomes a  clay mire-with the first'rain-storm  and is the roughest and worst cut  up bit of roadway on the whole  drive to Salmon Arm:. All the expenditure of money on the road in  patching and filling is wasted and  will be until the gravelling is done.  The whole story, or. mess of  stories, is inexplicable. Enough  hatred and suspicion creeps" into  community life iri war time, unconsciously and unintentionally, without manufacturing ghost" stories,"  ancl anyone hearing such statements as have been made by idle  gossip the past week or more, can  show some-patriotism worth having if "he or she will seek to learn  the absolute facts before repeating  the story. We are a long way from  the mad house of Europe yet.  CITY COUNCIL MEETING  *s>  FIRST BASEBALL OF SEASON  WINDOW PEEPING PATRIOTISM  Wagging tongues and idle'hands  have been busy the past week or  ten days peddling silly stones  hither and thither relating to Enderby citizens who are of Austrian  or German birth or extraction. We  have heard of hostile meetings secretly held; letters to Germany being written, fist-shaking defiance  of the authorities by a good German lady, and we have traced all  these stories to thecoward's cover  and find them to be the most contemptible lies without a grain ol  reason or common decency in them  started by idle gossip, peddled by  idle gossip and worthy of no more  consideration but for the fact that  thev do several worthy citizens ol  Enderby.. a great injustice.  Some days ago the German Lu-  thcrn preacher came to, Enderby  from Vernon and that evening held  services" in thc home of Mr. and  Mrs. Gus Schultz, as has been his  custom. While the services were  in progress there were peeping  eyes into the windows, and the  -next dav the story started ' the  rounds of card table, tea cup and  curb stone that secret alien meetings were being held, though to  what purpose and where nobody  seemed to know. Then there were  fool stories told about Joe Doerflinger, and.he was summoned to  Vernon and .immediately sent home  again. Mr. and Mrs. Vogcl have  also been assailed, most unreasonably and most contemptibly. Both  Mr.' and Mrs. Vogel are Canadian  born, from old Ontario; their parents were German-Canadians, and  they never have been out of Canada. They, like Mr. and Mrs. Gus  Schultz, have been residents of Enderby several years, and are tp be  respected for the way they have  conducted themselves while here, i  May 24th was very quietly observed iri Enderby.    Showers pre-,  vailed-throughout ,the day.    In the,  afternoon   a    baseball    game  was  played at "the-recreation park between the Enderby and Armstrong  seniors.    The ground was Too wet  for anything   more   than   a. loose,  game, but the  rooting was lively  and  interest keen, and  everybody  enjoyed the event.   For the first of  the season, it was a good game, and  both teams showed up well.

MAY 27, 1915  HONEST CRITICISM  When we look hack upon history and remember thc bungling in thc early stages of thc South  African war; when we recall thc shattering ol so  many brilliant reputations of British army ollicers, wc need not be surprised-nor in any way  alarmed at thc turn of affairs told in the despatches from London thc past week,    lhc boutli  African  war was  mere child's play  compared  wilh the'present war.   Britain has never been engaged in a war in any way similar to or to compare with the present Teutonic struggle.   And it  is lo be expected that the best plans thc British  War Office can lay will be upset, not once bul  many limes.    It is evident from the outspoken  language of the great London newspapers thai  public opinion is slrongly back of Ihem, and that  the crilisicm of today is.not of mush-room development-   Anvonc could read between lhc lines  of many an edftorial uIterance appearing m the  British press that lhc handling of the war and  fads relating Ihcrclo was nol giving satislaction,  at least to the British public,   .hist where the responsibility lies perhaps no one is in a position  to sav    Such newspapers as the.London   limes  ancl lhc  Pall  Mall    Gazelle,   ancl   others   outspoken  in  their criticism, ought to know, but  thev may not.     If wc are to believe something  that was credited  to Earl Kitchener when  the  war broke oul, he foreshadowed exactly what is  now transpiring In England. He said the people  would criticise and condemn, and would cry tor  -peac>,-ln'ngJ*)cf.orc-_pcacc would come; that Jhe  war would have lo be pushed to tlTelimit of the  empire's resources and in the face of obstacles  from wilhin as well as from without.  We have not vet seen thc-worst ol these clays,  nor may we l'or'many -"months. Out of the present dillicullies will come greater courage IhatThc  nation mav learn how lo meet greater ones, lhc  troubles  of  today do-not-.compare- with  those  .which- surclv  must   follow.    But  each  has  its  1 essoh l'oir I lie i ffdi vhl ua 1 and the Em pi re, -a ncl ou I  of it all Britain will emerge, nol lhe vaunlmg  victor of a swaggering age, but an Empire purified in the burning of her idols and the sacrificing  of cenlurv-old mvlhs of smug pride. Today it is  Earl Kitchener and Winston Churchill who must  bear the blame of her critics, but al'ler a little  while Britain as a whole will realise lhe great  work performed by these men of desliny ancl tlie  people will waken to the fact that these men  warned Ihem lime and again ol what was lo  come, bul they would not listen, and il lislcning  would not see.  Up to within a month or so ago thc municipal  officials of South Vancouver were lhc worst bag  of Kilkenny cats the Province was ever disgraced  by. Talk.about lawlessness! It was there. Ancl  now wc have this same bunch of disturbers of  the peace wildly calling upon the Dominion  Government to intern every alien in thc Province  ancl Dominion. Bcsolutions to this effect have  been passed and forwarded to Ottawa by those  patriotic sticklers for law of South Vancouver  Wc can imagine what Ottawa will do. with the  resolution. Ottawa will dispose of it about as  quickly as thc military authorities at Vernon  disposed of a petty complaint made against a  law-abiding; inoffensive alien storekeeper of Enderby the past week. Some individual or individuals,'evidently for petty personal reasons  more than patriotic, complained to thc authorities about Joe Doerflinger, and Provincial Constable Patton received instructions on Saturday  to take Joe to Vernon. No reason was given and  no time granted. Joe was snatched from the  side of his wife of a few months and taken away.  The level-headed authorities at. Vernon asked  him a few questions and told him to return to  his home and business.  People of Enderby who have known Joe Doerflinger for thc past two or three ycars know him  lo be a quiet, inoffensive, ambitious, persevering  ancl obliging baker. He minds his own business  and is a good citizen. Thc same might be said  of a score or more alien farmers in the district  hereabouts. There is a settlement of Austrians  in the vicinity of Trinity Valley who, wc arc told,  have done excellent work clearing up their land  and transforming bush lands inlo farms. They  come and go quietly, pay their, way, and offend  nobody. Are these people to be forced into internment and the cost of keeping them put upon  the Government and their womenfolk and children left without support, simply because they  are of Austrian birth ?  There is a heap of nonsense in the South Vancouver idea. But this is. not strange when wc  remember thc source of the idea.  SIR RICHARD HAS BEEN BUSY  ITALY FINALLY ACTS  After months of dickering ancl shilling of feet  llaly has finally cast her lot with the Allies. We  wisli we could hoorah for llaly, bul we cannot.  Naturally-we all must feci a great relief at knowing that we have on our side against lhe Teutons  an ally instead of an enemy. But where is the  man who does not feel a certain detestation for  lhe individual or lhe empire that goes back upon  ils friends? When lhc war broke oul it was  the triple entente against the triple alliance:  England, France and Russia against Germany,  Austria and Italy. llaly repudiated her part of  the agreement wilh her allies and remained  neutral, setting as a price on her neutrality the  surrender to her by Austria of extensive territory  The Hon- W. R. Ross, minister of lands, has  announced that the British admiralty is placing  an order with British Columbia mills for 10,-  000,000 feet of dimension lumber for shipment  in June and July. Thc Provincial Government  was informed 'of ils successful efforts on behalf  of thc export lumber trade by cable from Sir  Richard McBride. Hitherto British Columbia  firms whether bidding on private or British  Government orders have been able to deal only  with American brokers through whom it has  been thc custom to place such European orders.  TlTus~thc oi^lcT'h^Sv^securccHs^thc^firsHnstancc  in which direct dealing between thc Old Country and this portion of thc empire has been  formally recognized as thc only proper method.  In future all British Government enquiries for  Pacific Coast lumber will be addressed, direct to  British Columbia as a result of the representations made by the Provincial Government to the  Home authorities. British Columbia lumbermen  -have-also-been--handicappc(l_by~Jhc_xoiitroJ_Qf  available shipping companies which deal in  lumber as well as carrying it to foreign markets.  This lea lure was one of lhc main reasons for thc  despatch of Mr. H. R. MacMillan as special trade  commissioner to lhe United Kingdom, under instructions from Sir George Foster, whose energetic co-operation in lhis matter has been invaluable.

It is apparent to anyone who looks facts in the  face that lhc war tax is not operating as it  should. For instance: why should the sick man  be forced lo pay thc war tax on patent medicines ?

Reprimand and punishment were alike  in vain. Then a bright idea struck  the colonel. Why "not march him  up and down the whole line of thc  regiment and shame him into indecency?  It was done. The untidy warrior,  who happened'to b'e'ah .Irishman,  was ordered to exhibit himself and  march up and down the entire  regiment, ancl the nicn were told to  take a good look at him. After the  ordeal was over the unabashed son  of Erin halted, saluted the colonel,  and said in thc hearing of the  whole corps: "Dirtiest regiment I  ever inspected, sorr."

Like a bolt from the blue comes  the announcement from London  that the Asquith Government has  resigned, and that a coalition  government is now in the making.  F. A. McKcnzie, cables to the Vancouver Province lhat negotiations  between the two parties arc proceeding apace and a demand is  arising throughout the country  that a fresh start be made, with  the old party traditions wholly disregarded, and that men be chosen  for the new cabinet, not alone  from , Westminster cliques, but  from the great national administrators.  There are persistent rumors that  both Lord Fisher, and Mr. Winston  Churchill will leave the Admiralty.  Perhaps the most remarkable  development is the uncertainty of  Earl Kitchener's position. Such  papers as the London Times, the  Evening News, tand the Pall Mall  Gazette, have come out strongly  criticising the War Secretary's  handling of the British end of  .war, while the- London Chronicle  and other newspapers are levelling  a,bitter volley of protest against  Lord Northcliffe, and his string of  publications for their attitude  against the War Secretary. It is  said that the abuse, heaped upon  Earl Kitchener has only gone to  strengthen him in the eyes of the  public, and that he will not retire  under fire. He will fight it through  it Js said. "  Lord Northcliffe, Mr. McKenzic  says, is the most abused man in  .England. The'Daily Mail's leader  condemning Kitchener, caused an  immense furore and a public demonstration in the stock exchange  against it. Even the newspapers  which on the 21st severely criticised, and condemned. Earl Kitch-'  ener, on the 22nd recalled his.  good ���������������������������services and hunted' the dictionary,, for adjectives denouncing  Lord Northcliffe.' ���������������������������-' The; Daily, Mail,  one of the. Northclifle^papers, replies *Vhat\ i ts: statements"; were- more  than: justified and .that - the whole  controversy with 'its .bitter . personalities is "mainly symptomatic  of the high-strung nerves of the  people. The 'public have been  shaken out of their excessive complacency and are jumpy.  Concluding, Mr. McKenzie says:  "Uneasiness is rapidly growing  among the rank and file of the  Liberals over Mr. Churchill. They  cannot understand what he intends to do. They increasingly resent his conduct which helped to  bring about the present situation.  There .is a marked absence of the  spirit of mutual friendliness which  alone can make a coalition cabinet  a success. Some Liberal papers,  notably the Manchester Guardian,  are-^now^attemptingMo^strike^a-  highcr patriotic note, but generally  speaking, London is in a morass of  suspicion, distrust and abuse."  In its criticism of Earl Kitchener  the Times says: Kitchener's  orders for shells were given too  late, complaints and warnings disregarded, and the nation lulled into an utterly false security by misleading ollicial reports. The consequence is that hundreds and  thousands of British lives have  been sacrificed in an unequal contest. The whole trouble arose because Kitchener assumed an impossible burden."  Thc Manchester Gaurdian says  it is nothing less than a scandal  that we should still be sacrificing  thousands of precious lives and  holding back thc march of our  armies because thc supply of ammunition is short.  The Chronicle declares that Earl  Kitchener's neglect to inform the  cabinet concerning the deficiency  of high explosives, and his omission to communicate to it Sir John  French's appeals has led to disastrous., political and other consequences. '���������������������������������������������������������������������������������-'  The Daily News, while attacking Lord Northcliffe for criticising  Kitchener, declares that there is a  feeling on both sides that the War  Secretary's great services would  be best utilized not in civil administration, but in more purely  military duties.  German View of Crisis  A Rotterdam dispatch under  date May 22nd, says that while the  Deutsche Tages Zeitung culls upon  the German press not to inform  Great Britain of its real views on  thc British cabinet crisis, and some  journals see in it the beginning of  the end of Britain, responsible  newspapers clearly indicate that  the cabinet crisis is merely a domestic question and cannol adversely affect the British conduct  of the war. "Never in the course  of its history have the English people denied its government in the  middle of a war or left them in  default, and it would be a great  mistake to explain this crisis in  that spirit."  North End of Old Poison Mercantile Warehouse  is  PRISONERS OF WAR  The Postoffice Department has  issued the following instructions  relating - to correspondence for  prisoners of war in Germany:  Letters (which should be left  open) postcards and postal parcels  should be addressed as follows:  1.

Friends, of prisoners ofjwar.are  advised to send postcards in preference to letters as postcards are  less likely to be delayed. If letters  are sent, they should not exceed in  length two sides of a sheet of note  paper and should contain nothing  but the sheet of note paper. On  no account should .the' writing be  crossed.  Letters cannot for the present be  accepted  for  registration.  Postage need not.be paid cither  on letters or parcels addressed to  prisoners- of war.- ,.  No letters should be enclosed in  parcels, and newspapers must not  on any account be- sent.

Parcels should not exceed 11  pounds in weight.  Remittances can be made by  money order to prisoners of war.  Instructions as to how to proceed  can be obtained from postmasters  of accounting postoflices. The  transmission of coin, cither in  letters or parrels, i.s expressly prohibited. Postal notes and bank  notes should not be sent.  It must be understood that no  guarantee of the delivery of either  parcels or letters can be given and  that the postollicc accepts no responsibility. In any case, considerable delay may take place and  failure to receive an acknowledgment should not necessarily be  taken as an indication that letters  and parcels sen! have not been delivered.  So far as is known, prisoners of  war in Germany are allowed" to  write letters or postcards from  time to time; but they may not always have facilities for doing so  and the fact that no communication i.s received from them need  not give rise to anxiety.

Mr. Cameron accuses me of pulling him iu a very humiliating position, which is not the case, as  Ihe letter given below from Mr. W.  Woods will prove. The error I  did make, and for which I made  apologv, was not for gelling Mr.  Cameron into a humiliating position but for trying to gel him out  of one by promising that I would  protect an order on the North Enderbv School Board, and lo do so I  had ' lo withhold Mr. Cameron's  salarv for four days, which thc  Board thought f ought not to have  done, having picviously refused  to accept other orders given by  Mr.  Cameron.  In regard to Mr. Cameron's resignation,, this was unnecessary as his  term as teacher of the North Enderbv - school ended 30th June,  1915, of which no doubt he was  fully aware before sending in his  resignation.  I am vours truly,  J.  C.  Metcalfi*:.  Enderby, B. C. M,ay 14, 1915.  RUBBISH ALONG  RAILWAY  Mr. F. E. Tniutman, press representative of the C.P.R., writes in  the Vernon News: "In travelling  over western lines I have frequently noticed in the cases of small  towns and villiages the "dumping  ground" for rubbish and tin cans  is along the railway right-of-way,  especia.'i'y if there is a.hole in the  ground to fill up. While this does  no particular harm to anybody,  you will agree with me that it is  nol an agrecbalc sight to passengers travelling on our line,"but lhat  -it i.s disagreeable in many ways.  In many places they have not only  selected such a ' place for the  "clumping ground." bul also for a  "nuisance ground," and frequently  one sees a dead horse just outside  of a town or villiage, and close to  thc   railway  fence.  "There i.s really no reason why  such conditions should exist, as a  suitable sight could easily be secured at a more remote point, if  attention i.s directed to the matter.  I have frequently heard passengers comment on these disagreeable sights."  People talk gossip only because  of a lack of a worthy theme. Having nothing else to talk about they  turn and talk of each other; and  if they rend characters and rip  reputations up the hack, it is only  a sign of mental poverty.  To the Trustees North Enderby  School: Sirs: Mr. Metcalfe has  asked me to state in black and  white thc part he took in regard  to the summons against Mr. W.  Cameron: Mr. Metcalfe had nothing lo do wilh mc taking out thc  summons, but when I mentioned  lhe fact to him he pleaded that I  get an order from Mr. Cameron  and he would guarantee to protect  it to save trouble.       W. J. Woods.  Enderby, May 8th,  1915.  WARNING  Editor -Enderby  Press:  Sir: From reports that have  reached me from various unimpeachable sources, it" is quit apparent that the success which thc  Enderbv Egg Circle attained from  its imceplion, and which it still  maintains, has arouse!" much hos-  iilitv in the minds of certain persons. The specific report which  is being spread i.s that members  are nol paid. ' That report i.s not  confined to Enderby. It is prevalent at Grindrod; and a categorical  statement to lhe effect that members are not paid has been made to  a friend of mine by a farmer from  that place nol long ago, and was, of  course, indignantly denied.  Such statements as these require  no denial. They carry their own  refutation. * My object in trespassing upon vour valuable space is to  bring ibis* matter to the notice of  the public generally and to point  out that this malicious report is  doing a great amount'of harm to a  deserving industry by making people hesitate to join the Egg Circle  and thus prevents an extension ol  ils usefulness.  There is also a  personal aspect  upon   which  I  must  comment.    A  statement of this sort is a slur upon  | the honestv and integrity of myself  las manager, and is defamatory and  j libellous,. nnd   1. hereby_give __duc_  i warning thai if I can nail this lie  ! lo  the counter and  trace it to its  source I will do so with the utmost  ' rigor thai the law allows.

CO-OPERATIVE   EGG   CIRCLES  The following extract from the  Montreal "Star'should' be read and  pondered well by the poultrymen  -or-lhi.s--dislrictj-"piii'ticularly-as~il  relates to the successful operation  nf a similar institution to the Egg  Circle which has made such a good  si art  here:  The poultrvmcn ol Prince Edward Island have reason lo con-  grntulnlc themselves on the success which has attended their work  during lhe pasl year. The total  business transacted during the year  amounted lo $279,1 M.GO, nnd the  Inlal number of eggs collected by  sixlv-one co-operative egg circles  amounted to 1,210,909 dozens.  The average net price per dozen  paid lo members was 22c, and the  ���������������������������ivoriige cost of collecting l.Oo cents  per dozen. This price is probably  three or four cents better than the  previous average price for the year  paid bv local grocers and pedlars.  These figures were announced at  the annual meeting of the Prince  Edward Co-operative Egg nnd  Poullrv Association held a month  ago sit'Chnrlottctown. All the, sixty-  one circles are amalgamated in this  provincial association, and each  had its representative at thc annual meeting. Speaking on the  meeting. Mr. W. A. Brown, chiclol  the poullrv division, nonunion  live slock 'branch, under whose  supervision thc work had been  conducted, says, "I was surprised  al lhe enthusiasm that prevailed,  and  Ihe ardent interest which the  delegates took in the conduct of  their own business. The results  of the meeting, I believe, will not  only tend to consolidate and vitalize the co-operative movement in  Prince Edward Island, but will also  constitute a definite forward  step toward the consummation of  this work throughout the whole of  the Dominion."  The success of thc co-operative  work has been largely due to thc  work of thc Dominion representative on lhe Island, Mr. T. A. Benson,  who worked against many outside  influences, but through the loyally  of thc circle members has been  able to overcome all obstacles.  The smallest of our provinces  has set an example for lhe whole  Dominion to copy. Organization  work on a small scale has already  been started in other provinces,  mainly Ontario and Quebec, and  there is no reason why the whole  of'thc farmers' output of eggs  should not be controlled co-operatively by thc farmers themselves.  Co-operation i.s the only solution of  the poullrv marketing difficulties  of the large majority of our poultrymen.--  Example of European Diplomacy  Jack and Mary were told that  there were two apples on the table  for them. Being taught to consider each other first, Jack said:  "Take your, choice, Mary."  "No," said Mary, "you take your  choice."  Each then kept on insisting that  lhe other take first choice, until  finally. Mary broke the deadlock by  taking the larger apple. Instantly  Jack's eyes flashed, and he exclaimed: "Put that back and take  your choice."  C. P. R. TIMETABLE  In effect Mav 31, 1915  Southbound Northbound  10.40,lv.

PLUMBING.HEATING TINSMITHING  KEEP SMILING  It is useless to be disheartened  because things do not go just * as  you would like to have them.  Murmuring does not cure troubles.  A disagreeable face will not alter  a disagreeable fact. Try to extract  some grain of comfort out of your  adversities.. Never despair; under  whatever circumstances be cheerful and hope in the darkest hour.  There is nothing so philosophical  as a smile. A merry heart-is the  height of wisdom. The greatest  part of our griefs will disappear  when-viewed-througlutheJenses-of  cheerfulness. Let thc dark past  sink out of sight.
