-Office of Grand Recorder,' Hamilton, Ont., July 19th, 1915.
City- Clerk, Enderby, B.C. ' *  .
Dear Sir:" When-a municipality
-gets in such a tight financial position that it is unable to pay the
small sum of $75, it is certainly
time.that something was done, as,
such a condition of things cannot
- b_e_ cojisidered  satisfactory toyany
-one  Holding   debentures   of your
city. = Would you be kind enough
to send me a financial statement
showing the actual condition of
things existing in connection with
your city-so that I can submit the
same to our investment committee,
which has.such matter in charge.
> It seems to me that the Government should come to the assistance
rassed by abnormal conditions-
whatever local inconvenience they
might suffer���������would at least" be
sustained in meeting their liabilities to the investing public.
The experience of the last twelve
months, however, as far as this city
is concerned, has gone'far to nullify this confidence, and to impair
correspondingly the credit of the
municipality.* Owing to unemployment,- restriction of business and
general depression, the/ .civic
revenues; for the, first time since
incorporation, have been-deficient,,
and1 all- grounds of confidence on
the    part"' of - bondholders    have
Eroved illusive,, no support having
een forthcoming cither from federal, provincialor banking sources.
For seven; months payment'of interest to"'" bondholders has been
suspended, and although the city's
bankers have now consented to
make advances, the damage to the
cityV credit will not be repaired
for years to come,* if ever.
It is evident,- therefore, that  if
similar, disaster- is to berguarded
against for the futur-j'it must be" by
somd - efforts .of ~ oirivown: ""--Your*
committee --have -given ^this1 "matter
their"'""earnest.yconsiderationV' and-
are "of 'opinion?that!if is' feasible.,
greatly to improve the_city-'s finan-*-
ci'al system,*+with marked benefit" to1

-Your'jcommittee. recommend. (1)���������
that: in future-'real'property"' taxes
be made optionally payable in four,
instalments,' due," ��������� say,  on M March'
31st,- June: 30th; y September^ 30th-.
and, December* 31st,  in.~ each Valid'
every year;  and-that ^ suitable jn-
ducements by.'way of rebate, etc.,
be   offered - for  prompt  payment;
(2)   that" your  committee  be  empowered jo   frame   the  necessary,
by-law or by-laws to give effect to
the  proposed  change,  and  to  the
variousv adjustments necessarily-involved;  and* to-obtain  such legal
assistance as may be required  in
connection ^therewith; ,(3)   that  a
tax'sale be held in each arid every
year: to clear off-all..tax arrears of
the  previous  year;   and   (4)   that
provision be made annually, for the
setting aside of such sum of money
as may be deemed suitable towards
the accumulation of a reserve fund
credit  against   the   effect  of  any
deficit    which    may   arise   in   thc
future, similar to that of the past
year.  .
Your committee are of opinion
that the taxes, if made payable by
instalments, would be met far more
readily" by the majority of taxpayers than under the present system, while the advantage to the
corporation would be that instead

the meantime to finance the city on

"A war of endurance," was thc characterization given thc great European conflict by Premier Asquith in the House of Commons, the
other day, just before adjournment of thc war
session. "Germany's submarine warfare is a
menace, but it will not substantially injure our
trade. England's fleet is not only unimpaired,
but actually stronger than at the beginning of the
war. Recruiting operations are proceeding in a
highly satisfactory manner. Russia hitherto has
borne the brunt of the enemy's attack with indescribable gallantry, but England's turn will come.
When it does she will be prepared."
To the quiet and unobserved, but ubiquitous
and all-powerful activity of the British fleet, the
Premier said, was due the fact that the seas are
clear or substantally clear.
"For, after all," he said, "this submarine menace, serious as it has appeared to be, is not going
to inflict fatal or substantial injury on British
trade. These seas are clear. We have our supply
of food and raw materials, upon which we and
the rest of the country depend, flowing in upon
us in the same abundance and with the same
large,    make    such    arrangements
that municipalities in good stand- ,
ing and merely temporarily embar- irecdom; and I may say without much exaggcr-,
a tion, judging from the insurance rates and
other matters, with thc same immunity from serious hazards and risks as in times of peace."
"We should be ungrateful and insensitive indeed," continued the Premier, "if we did not
recognize at this moment thc indescribable
gallant efforts being made by our Russian allies
lo stem the tide of invasion and to retain
inviolate the integrity of their possessions. I do
not think in the whole of military history there
has been a more magnificent example of discipline and endurance and of both individual and
collective initiative than has been shown .by the
Russian army in "the last seven weeks."
The Premier asserted that thc British Government's confidence in the results of the Dardanelles operations was undiminished. He emphasized, also, his confidence in" the victory of both
the British and French armies engaged in the
western field. Referring to the fact that this
week would sec the completion of a year of war,
Mr. Asquith remarked that the world never had
seen a more miraculous transformation in this
country (England); not in its spirit and heart,
but in the outward manifestations of its life, than
had taken place in these twelve months.

At thc tax sale held in Penticton
last week, thc Herald says only 30
lots were sold, out of 273 advertised. Many, of course, had been
paid up by the-owners before the
sale came off. The property advertised for sale meant about ������8000
in taxes and expenses. Of this
amount,$4000 was paid by lot owners before the sale. Of the remaining $4000 'going'to sale, approximately $1,500 was paid in by
purchasers of the thirty odd lots
and the rest lies with the municipality. ���������

AUGUST 5, 1915  KEEP UP THE CONFIDENCE  When limes were normal, before the war, it  *- won iu-nave been impossible lo Und-an individual  in the Okanagan who hadn't confidence in the  Valley and in himself. It was natural for it to be  so, lor there is nol a fairer dislrict in the whole  Dominion, or one more capable of a Hording any  man or woman willing lo work a good living,  wilh opportunities for bigger things if one has  an eye to business.    That was only a year ago.  Conditions, real condilions, have not changed.  There is not a district in the Okanagan that is not  in a more productive stage of development than  iI. was a year ago. In thc Endcrby-Mara district  llie acreage into crop i.s at least Iwo thirds more  than Iwo years ago. The yield will this year be  much heavier, per acre lhan lasl year. Perhaps  Ihe market will nol he so good, for all lines'of  farm products, and the prices may be lower, but  lhal is lo be expected. A dollar today has at least  once again lhe value of a dollar a year or two  ago. therefore, considered from this point of  view, the lower prices arc in reality not a reduction. And as for opportunities, they are as  plentiful and promising today as al any time in  lhe pasl. We arc not denying the-presence of a  feeling of depression and uncertainly. II does  ���������������������������"TxiMT^B iT nd?cfii! -Hit?���������������������������ri i eriri s=n o**rca so i Ho r-a ny-  hick of confidence in any section of Lhe Okanagan  Valley. Its possibilities arc as great loday as  ever;  ils fertile acres will produce as much as  War is a great game. When nations and peoples become involved, they seem to forget sanity,  forget that black is black and white is white, and  that Iwo and two make four, ancl, blinding their  eyes to reason, pass the "con" along, neighbor  to neighbor. In war as in peace, men believe only  lhat which suits their taste. Good report or evil,  it is all lhc same. Prejudice so beclouds the mind  that simple truth has little chance of getting a  hearing. Occasionally wc hear criticism of the  war censorship, and complaints about lhc way thc  war news is "colored," as il comes from the war  news bureau. But thc war news bureau knows  what it is aboul. Not that the war department is  afraid lo lake the. public into ils confidence and  lei the people know the exact truth, not this. But  lhc war news bureau knows best whal the public  wishes to hear, and the news from the fronts is so  "colored" as to best suit thc community where il  is to be read. For this reason, in very few cases  can the public in belligerent countries get at the  real facts in connection with the war if only the  war news bureau reports lor belligerent consumption arc depended upon.  Judging from lhe news bureau-report about thc  evacuation of Przemysl, Lemberg, and now Warsaw and all of Poland, by the Russians, these reports would have us believe lhal it was all a  master coup on thc part of the Russian military  leader, and in no way a victory for thc enemy.  When thc Russians pushed thc Austrians out.of  Galicia and broke through Dukla, Lupkow, Ros-  tok and other Carpathian passes and established  themselves at Sztropko, twenty miles inside Hungary, lhe latter part of March, wc were told that  it was the Russian plan to run thc steam roller  onto and over the''Hungarian plains and to thus  cap I lire the granary of the'Austrian-Hungarian  empire and control this season's harvest.    Thc  -plan would have been a whirl-wind had Russia  been able to make good.    With the advent of  summer the,world generally expected the Czar's  forces  to pour into Hungary for thc long-pre-  diclcd invasion.   Late in April, however, thc German-Austrian army under Von Mackcnscn broke  through   thc Russian  positions  at  Gorlice  and  Tarnow, and thc great drive back through thc  Carpathians and on through Galicia was begun.  Not satisfied with this, and thc recapture of all the  ground  taken by .the Russians, the enemy- has  pushed on into Poland and captured Warsaw and  all thai territory west of the Bug River.   In other-  Words the enemy has thrown a line across Poland  from Galicia on thc south to the Prussian border  on the north, straightening out the line between  Austria-Hungary and Germany���������������������������700 miles across  ���������������������������and recognized as thc richest territory in all of  Russia, having a population, before thc war, of  nearly   2,000,000;     Thc   Russian   army   fought'  heroically to save Warsaw and this vast district  of great wealth, but finally had to move back to  the Bug river.   Aflcr making this gallant stand in  the defense of Warsaw and retreating as best they  could, saving as many of the Russian armies as  was possible, the great achievement, or thc glory  of it, seems to be. much dimmed by this absurd  slalemenl sent out from  Petrograd: "Russia is  only now, after a whole year of war has passed,  doing precisely what  her deliberate  and  considered plan of campaign for war on the Eastern  front had long ago laid down as her first move  after llie declaration of war."

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday,   August 5, 1915  BIG B. C FRUIT CAMPAIGN  liousewile  sugar."    One  Mr. J. Forsyth Smith, Provincial  fruit   market  commissioner,. is  an  ex-newspaperman,  and  knows  the  value of newspaper publicity.    As  an evidence of this, we have before  us'samples of* Calgary papers containing    attractive    advertisements  boosting B. ('.. fruit, and encouraging  the   housewives  of  Alberta   lo  put  up  as much   fruit  as  possible.  Newspaper   articles    also   appear,  making an appeal to the  lo "preserve without  of  the   strong  arguments   used   in  favor of B. C. fruit i.s in the nearness   of   British   Columbia   lo   Hie  Northwest market, .'-!()  lo -IS hours,  which   makes   it   possible   to   ship  fruit of a ripeness and consequent  flavor   impossible   to   find   in   the  foreign   fruit  handicapped   by  distance.    Mr. .Smith is offering prizes  for the  besl  short  articles  written  by housewives lolling of theirsuc-  cess  with   fruit  preserved   without  sugar, along the lines laid down in  the fruit booklet published by Hie  Department of Agriculture for free  circulation to anyone applying.   In  this  connection,   Mrs.   G.  C.   York,  of   Calgary    tells   her   experience.  Like   many   people   trying   a   new-  idea, she fell a little doubtful about  it,   although   quite   convinced   that  from   a   scientific   standpoint,   the  idea is theoretically correct.    However, the promise for economy and  superior quality seemed lo warrant  the experiment, and so she put <up  a small quantity of rhubarb and of  peaches. The results could scarcely  be heller, and as to the quality find  flavor, she says: "No one who has  nol used fruit put up in bolh ways  could realize how lhc cooked-sugar  taste interferes wilh and spoils Ihe  real   fruity    Ilavor.      The   peaches  were as  fresh  as  if they had jusl  been picked, and were voted by all  who lasted Ihem as very much better lhan the usual canned ones. The  rhubarb   experiment   was   just   as  successful.    The last of them were  used within thc pasl two weeks and  were just as good  then as the day  they were put down."    Mrs. York,  however,  emphasizes  the  necessity  for careful sterilization.    She boils  h'cr jars for 20 minutes before filling them with fruit, and is equally  careful     with    her    rubbers    and  covers.    She  says  this  is  the  real  secret of success, and thai good results will only follow if every precaution i.s taken.    She is even particular not to touch the covers and  rubbers  after slcrilization,handling  Ihcin     with     improvised     forceps,  formed by using thc handles ol" two  spoons.  LATEST WAR SUMMARY  Thc armies of Germany and Austria-Hungary are being held by the  Russians lo the west of Warsaw,  bul they are making progress eise-  wherc on the eastern front, and a  Berlin report says that Gen. von  Buelow's cavalry, which swept  through Milan Sunday, now is said  to be only 1*0 miles from Higa, the  most important port on the Baltic  Sea.
