Something over $500 was raised. Then  it became known .that llie need of  machine- guns Jjy lhe Canadian  troops, al>-th"e" front 'was being'fully  met by the, Government, and interest-in ihe machine gun fund began lo lag.. Little has -been , done  ji"u.Uiis,,connectipn.for, tne.-.past..few.  weeks, ' and "the.-".committee*- having  the' fund; in ".hand, desire, io. know  just what the subscribers wish lo  have done with the'-money subscribed. They wantio close up-the  business. And the Press is requested to announce that a meeting  will be held in lhe Cily Hall Friday  evening, Ocl. 8th, for the purpose  of deciding the question. All subscribers to the fund, and anyone  else interested, are urged to be  present, al 8 o'clock.-  In this connection, it would no  doubt bc interesting to hear what  Sir "Herbert. Ames, honorary secretary of .the Canadian Patriotic  Society thinks of it. In thc course  of an address delivered in Victoria  a few nights ago, the honorary secretary said that there were many  funds open for the contributions  of thc patriotic citizens.- But the  one above all others to which it  was the duty of every citizen to  subscribe was thc Canadian Patri-  ���������������������������oti_==Fund.-=-The=-Red=-Cross-=.woi-l<--  was a magnificent one, hc said, but  the Red Cross did not need more  than one dollar where the patriotic  fund required five. Thc Belgian.  Relief Fund was one which appealed to the sympathies of all.  But an article by Frank Marshall  White in a well-known American  magazine recently had testified to  the generous spirit of the American  people in helping lhe lillle nation,  and at a cost-of $10,000,000 a  month was caring for the Belgian  refugees." So Canada needn't worry  aboul ���������������������������Belgium. Il was thc duly of  the* Canadian Government to train,  equip and pay ils soldiers. And if  funds were opened "for lhe purchase of machine guns, aeroplanes,  etc., il was deliberately taking  money from the people of Canada  lo do a Ihing which lhc Government should do. It was the Government's duty to furnish these  things. No. They did not want  any more machine guns. They did  want men to use the guns, however, and the best way to get the  men was to promise to look-after  tlie wife and children at home.

Holbrook  is' a gray haired individual and  wears a moustache, .while, long and  curled up at the ends. He represented himself lo bc a life insurance agent, and his general bearing  and educated tongue made it easy  for him to work upon the confidence of the unwary. But he lias  abaci left eye which looks, around  the  corner.  No sooner had Constable Bailey  wired a description "of the man to  neighboring towns than it became  evident   that   lie   was  wanted   in  many places for working lhe same  game  as   he -put  over .the   unsuspecting   in   Enderby.     He -was   a  polished   prisoner   and   Constable  Bailey treated him like a gentleman  ���������������������������-"but he kept an eye on" him.VHe,  was landed in- the- Enderby lockup  without incident.    Saturday afternoon numerous.xhargcs .were laid-,  against Holbrook, which' made-him  a   Provincial- -prisoner,. and . Constable Bailey was-instructed to turn  him~ over  to  the local-Provincial*  "constalilc'-'for- safekeeping.'. -But  Provincial" Constable"   Patton   "was  not "in   town - and  did ��������������������������� not * return  until the following day.   Constable  ���������������������������Bailey met the train  Sunday ancl  wanted   to. turn  his  man  over to;  Constable    Patton.      Patton,   in   a  jocular way, said he was nol working on  Sunday'and  that the man  would keep until thc following day.  But  he  didn't.     When    Constable  Bailey opened Ihe cell door Monday  morning Holbrook wasn't there.   A  hole   through   the   brick   wall   18  inches thick-showed how he had  escaped.  Lying upon the cell col were  three pieces of metal which thc  prisoner had broken off lhe iron  frame of the cot. With these hc  had managed to work his way  through the brick wall into thc  basement of thc Cily Hall, and from  here he could walk to lhc street at  his leisure. He made good his escape and has since managed lo  elude thc ollicers of the neighboring  roAvnsf^Vi raee^o IHi i m=-h as=bcen*--  r.eported up to iiic'i*)resent writing.  City Council Considers Matter of ��������������������������� . x  Revising System of Assessing  At a meeting of the City Council  Monday evening, after several matters of routine had been disposed  of, and a communication from ihe  Mainland Fire Underwriters'-Association, complaining of the extra  lire risk which the improper sloiv  ing of gasoline in the business section .pf Enderby was causing; also  of the faulty electrical wiring of  buildings, had been disposed of  and thc recommendations made in  the communication.'noted by the  Council, the following important  report of thc finance committee was  read:  i'Thc finance committee beg lo remind the Council that the period  now   has   arrived   when"  arra'nge-  an   officer,   once   appointed,   is   lo  hold oflice until he resigns, dies, or  is dismissed; also, the nature of the  assessor's   work   requires   lhat   his  oflice bc a permanent one, as il is  necessary for him lo keep the correction   of   thc   roll   constantly   in  mind, gathering data for same from'  all sources thc year round.

Ile'was of the pioneer type: big of  heart, rough exterior but under the  crust all a man io his fellows. In  later���������������������������years-lie���������������������������Svasllhe -prosperous  proprietor of the Enderby hotel. In  lhis capacity, by-lhc aid of his loyal  help-mate, Mrs. Wright,-.he-.won,  along wilh n host of warm friends,  a comfortable fortune. Four'years  ago they desired to retire from the  hotel business, and sold his properly here, moving to Vancouver  with something like $35,000 to his  credit. In Vancouver he invested.  Had he sold al the proper time he  would have increased his bank account probably $50,000. But he  held on. You know the rest. In  the Vancouver Province a few  days ago his sudden death  ported. It seems that in  sence of Mrs. Wrighl  Mr. Wrighl returnee  was re-  the nb-  ��������������������������� and daughter,  from a walk  and, so far as anyone knows, turned  on thc gas in the gas range and  laid down upon thc couch to rest.  The water must have boiled over  from thc kettle on the stove and put  out the gas fire. The gas then escaped inlo the room and Mr.  Wright was suffocated. He was 72  years or age, and up to within the  past year, was a man of robust  hcallh, wilh  never a  pain.  The number of prisoners taken  by German troops in lhc Eastern  front during September and the  amouni of booty captured arc reported to-have been '121 officers.  93,404 men, 37 cannon and 298  machine  guns.  lhc ro  owner  cstcd, disregarded assessment and  tax notices, which, -having been  sent to him, necessarily did not  reach thc new owner; wdio, consequently, let the taxes run on, ap-  p a ren 11 y _t h i n k i n g__t h a t_as _ hc_had.  received no notice he coutd nof~bc  held   responsible.  The cily is required by law to  have upon its books-a correct legal  description of every parcel of land  or real estate on which il levies  rales; and it is impossible to carry  out properly the various -transactions necessary in connection with  the assessment of property and collodion of taxes without it.

"No blame whatever attaches in  lhis connection to the present assessor, or to any of the previous  occupants of the posl, all of whom  without exception,'gave thc cily lhe  best service which was possible in  the restricted conditions under  which Ihey worked.  . "The difficulty has been due to  two causes: (I) lhc erroneous and  long-prevailing impression lhal the  appointment of thc assessor was an  annual one, and lhal all he had to  do was to compile Ihe annual assessment list, send out the. notices  and attend al the hearing of appeals, aflcr which his duties for the  year were over; and (2) thc small-  ncss of the provision.made for thc  work, which rendered il impossible  for. an assessor to give sufficient  lime to make a thorough inspection  of properties assessed, search the  records of the Registry Office and  by general vigilence and attention  keep posted in regard to changes  of ownership, elc.  "In regard to the first-named  cause, il i.s to be observed that the  Municipal Acl clearly requires that  the assessor shall be a permanent  officer; and, in fact, specifically  declares thai no annual hiring of  officers is lo be inferred, but that  which thc. laxes sought to be collected were levied.-.If there is any  .break in'thc chain, it-may result'in  the selling of thc wrong lands, or of '  lands  which   arc hot- actually  existent; in either of which .cases it  is easy lo see that legal complications  may  ensue.    Also, "it is  ap- -  parent lhal names of owners musl*  be constantly corrected on lhc roll"  as   changes   take "place,   otherwise  I persons who do not owe  the city  *  anything arc liable to bc  improperly advertised  as delinquents.*  "In view of these considerations,  and of lhc fact lhat a lax sale had  been ordered by the Council, for  which extensive preparation was  necessary, a considerable revision-  of thc roll has been made during  the lasl few months,, and valuable  data obtained, at the cost of considerable effort and expense; and,  *willf=this=informalion=:incorporaled-=������������������=  in il, lhe roll will be much more  complete than it has hitherto been.  "As above intimated, 'however,  constant care and attention are required if the" roll is to bc kept in  thorough, up-to-date order, so that  it will hold good, if called in question in the courts, and so thai the  collection of I taxes may, be facilitated, and, if necessary, enforced  by IcgaLaction,'-wMhoufihe risk of  7ailiirc~--lifi-bTigli"^  calily... -.���������������������������'"  "As regards lhe valuation of  property.'"for the assessment roll,  we would point out lhat land is no  longer-'required-.'by.: law to be assessed at cash value; il is now, in  consequence of a change'recently  enacted in the section governing,  required lo be valued at 'actual-  value.' Such a change as this,  made al a lime when'.-values' 'are  visibly shrinking, was no doubt intended by lhc Legislature as a precautionary measure to guard  against undue lowering of assessment valuations, whereby municipal credit would bc depreciated  to an unnecessary and injurious  degree. We are of opinion, however, lhal in recognition of existing  conditions it would bc wise, in the  public interest, that some reduction should be made in land values  in the assessment for the coming  year. -���������������������������������������������������������������������������������''  With reference to 'improvements,' as. there seems lo be a certain amount of confusion in the  public mind regarding the-principles governing the assessment of  this class of property, -wc would  draw attention to the fact that  while in district municipalities this  [Continued on last pace]  J.LJ  .    -     ���������������������������  777l7&l  j?3*?r.$,-'s3_s|  -r-ir*-~\,������������������- t-w ,-;������������������.

SI an inch per month.,  THURSDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1915  GOVERNMENT CREAMERY  7 While at Armstrong tbe other day, Mr. Scott,  deputy minister of agriculture, promised the  people Government assistance in the matter of a  local creamery. Hc did not state to what extent  this assistance would bc given, nor in what way  nor when, but said that it would bc out of thc  question jusl now while financial conditions arc  so unsettled owing to the war. Mr. Scott's assurance brings the question of creamery again to thc  front, and while il is in lhe people's minds wc  hope lo bc excused if wc point owl whal appear  to be defects in thc Government's policy in giving  assistance in these matters unwisely. Already the  Govrnmcnt has something like $2,000 tied up in  lhc creamery now in operation in Armstrong.  It also has something more than this amount tied  up in a creamery at Lumby which has not been  in operation for some ycars, and was never run  as a Government-assisted creamery should bc  run. There is no reason to believe that another  creamery established at Armstrong would bc any  more successful lhan lhc creamery now in operation there, provided the Government put money  into it under thc same conditions as have prevailed in the past. Thc principle of such assistance is wrong. Why not take a lesson from the  Government creameries of New Zealand, and  either do thc jhing right or leave it alone. Wc  Vu*e convincetl^  anything more to do with creameries in the Okanagan, it should be on lhc basis of a Government-  owned centralized creamery. Let lhere come  al'lerwaids as many branch creameries as are  found lo bc-necessary'in connection . with the  parent or central creamery, but lei il bc understood lhat every pound of butler turned, out. by  the central and its branches should be of one  -standard olV|uaiilymid-put onlhe-market-under  one brand���������������������������the Government brand. Then every  pound of butler lurned oul of the creameries of  the Okanagan would he known as "Okanagan"  buller, and wilh the Government operating, or  supervising lhe operation of thc creameries, lhat  standard could hc maintained, and a market  buiil up for it llie same as the market for New  Zealand buller is now maintained.  At lhe present lime we have in lhe Valley, and  each looking lo the Government for assistance, a  creamery al Vernon, another at Kelowna and another al Armslrong. And one i.s as much entitled to assistance as tlie other. And should the  Government granl lhe assistance demanded by  each���������������������������and there is no reason why il should not if  il grants it lo any one���������������������������whal would we have for  lhe money? Perhaps each of the affairs would  operate successfully the first season or two, and in  a small way Und a market for the output, but  each would he on the market in competition with  the olher, and each would be producing a  grade and brand of buller of its own, and none  of Ihem in sullicienl quantity to get into the big  market. In olher words, thc Government would  be pulling lhc people's money inlo different in-  slilutions, each one prepared to cut the throat of  lhe olher in the markets of thc Dominion. We  never could hope lo get inlo thc world market  under these condilions.  We have pretty thoroughly adopted the centralized idea in lhe Okanagan in the handling of  our I'ruil  and it goes on the market under one brand. If  this is good business in the handling of our fruit,  why not in the matter of our dairy products?  The Government should put its foot down once  for all in this matter of "assistance." Heretofore,  whether intentional or not, the dislrict having  thc biggest vote has been getting the readiest  Government assistance, and of times thousands of  dollars of public money have been wasted on  enterprises which have not made good. Can we  all'ord to go on in lhis way? Would il not be the  wiser thing to do the thing right or let it alone  entirely?  Urge your own spontaneous thought against all  prudential considerations, and thc world will believe in you���������������������������or hate you; the difference is small.  PLAIN TALK WITH BUSINESS MEN  Two ycars or more  ago when  thc Press was  running its "Patronize your  home town    cam  paign, a special writer was paid for the articles  then appearing���������������������������a writer of national reputation,  whose experience along lines of community improvement and district betterment had given him  a close insight into thc intricacies of the problem  that made his writings of real sound value. Just  how much Enderby merchants profited by the  articles then appearing, and how much the community benefitted by thc dollars which may have  been kept at home by that publicity wc arc not in  your  the prices are low!

We do know, lhat so far as thc | Q, ' n . .  Press is concerned, the campaign cost us in the ������������������nOrt "Uprawooa,  neighborhood of a round hundred dollars besides  the criticism which patrons of thc mail order  houses levelled at us for printing the articles in  question. There was ho reciprocating on thc part  of our business people, and, with possibly one or  two exceptions, no real effort was made to work  together in the interest of the community by encouraging buying nt home.  Today there is said to be more money sent out  of Enderby for supplies than is spent in Enderby  with our local merchants. We cannot sa)r how  true this statement is. But it docs not require a  very discerning eye lo discover that a tremendous  proportion of the supplies used in and about Enderby is brought in from the catalogue houses,  and from neighboring towns. This is a deplorable condition. It is only because we recognize  the seriousness of it lhat wc arc writing as wc do.  The Press has no desire to tell a businessman  how hc should run his business. We have silently  looked on for the past year or two and noted the  gradual slowing down of local business, while thc  purchases from Vancouver, Winnipeg, Calgary  and neighboring towns have speeded up. Wc do  not see purchasers coming in to Enderby from  our neighboring localities for supplic ���������������������������.. as used to  bc the case. There is no use blinding our eyes to  these facts. Wc cannot thus get away from them.  And, what makes matters worse, all the goods  purchased from thc catalogue houses and from  thc neighboring towns musl bc paid for before  wrapping up. Thus the cash is being drained out  of lhc district. Discussing this phase of local,  town business, thc Summerland Review says:      !  "Merchandise -"well bought is only half sold. Your  stock represents money, and it is money that is tied  up. Make this money work for you as much as possible���������������������������and advertising is the key to thc situation. j  "You have certain fixed expenses that cannot bc materially reduced. Better sell f>0 articles at. a grossj  profit of 30 cents each than sell 80 articles at a gross  profit of 50 cents each, even though you have to spend  two dollars in advertising in order to sell the 50  articles.

To stop  advertising because of a dull season is to lose momentum.   Keep thc ball rolling when you have it started, j  by  using a judicious  amount  of advertising motive  force.

"Willi Ihe big merchants of the country advertising  i.s an asset, nol a liability, and you can make your advertising one of the most successful features of your  business."  Some men in business look upon advertising as  a weapon to use against a competitor. But this is  nol the winner's idea.

One merchant in a community cannot attract business to a town, no matter how persistent hc may bc, but lhe momentum gained by each j  merchant doing his pari and adding to thc im-:  pet us of the whole, is what brings to the town  business from lhe outlying dislrict and holds the  local business at home.  $10.00 per M  -     $13.00 per M  -       -        $1.75 per M  -       -       $3.75 per load  Dry Blocks,    -    -    -    $1.50 per load  SAVE MONEY-Buy your winter's fuel NOW.

It is thc duty of every butter maker to comply with the law in this matter. Some butter  makers have only a cow or two, and make so little  butter that it does not appear to them that they  can afford to have their butter wraps printed.  They do not like the idea of having 500 or 1000  butter wraps on hand. To accommodate this  class of butter makers, The Press has printed up  a quantity of "Custom" Butter Wraps. They are  printed with the words "Fresh Dairy Butter" but  do not bear the name of the maker. However,  these wrappers lill thc requirements of the law  governing this point, and can be bought in small  quantities at thc rate of 50c a hundred in 100 or  50 lots. If you do not repuire butter wraps in  larger lols, take these wraps in lesser quantities.  What a hideous, revolting picture this war  would make of civilization if it were not all so  funny.

HENDRICKSON, Proprietor  Next the Fulton Block, Enderby  tt is noted that while men at thc front write and  thank donors for the tobacco sent by this London  tobacco firm, they also complain of ils quality,  which many of them pronounce to bc theworst  imaginable.'  "Thc general slipshod methods which prevail,  aside altogether from thc above case, whereby  thc public is being constantly relieved of ils small  change without having anything like a clear conception of where the money is going, or how il  will be administered, are to be roundly condemned. There needs'.to be an injection of business methods. People should not be allowed to  introduce indiscriminately all sorts of catchpenny devices in the name of charity, or under  the guise of patriotism, without first having their  plan, together with the personnel of those back of  it, thoroughly investigated, and if found correct  in every particular, a license issued. It would be  a simple matter to amend the code to this extent,  and at the same time appoint "officials, whose  business it would be" to see to it that those interested were held, in the words of President Wilson,  to'strict accountability.'"  TOBACCO THANKFULLY RECEIVED  Cards continue to reach the headquarters of  the United Service Tobacco Fund, says lhe Victoria Colonist, expressing gratitude for packets  of; tobacco which have reached soldiers at llie  front. In almost every case the cards are written  in the trenches and mention thc tobacco having  reached them with their service of rations. This  is a notable feature of the work of the fund. It  serves thc men under conditions altogether impossible through any other channel.  ing questions:.  Is thc Ministerial Union of thc Lower Mainland  a religious or a political body?  If it is a religious body, for whom docs il have a  right to speak? If it is a political body whom  docs it represent?  If there is any record anywhere of any church  organization or body of Christians having authorized this Union to engage in politics?  Do the members of this Union profess to  speak for the members of their several congregations and what authority have they to so  speak? ���������������������������' .  , We take no exception to n group of ministers  devoting their time in addition to their church  work to engage in politics. The wisdom of such  a course must remain a matter of individual  judgment and the only, persons'who have a right  to criticise their conduct in this regard are the  members of their respective congregations. But  the public have.a right to know what this Union  is. If it consists of.a number of individuals who  happen to be ministers and who conceive it to bc  their duty lo engage in politics, we have no right  to complain; but in that event ils title is misleading and must have been chosen wilh an intent to  mislead by giving its doings such weight as it can  obtain . from being associated wilh religious  bodies. In other parts of Canada the title of the  Union has had the effect ol* convincing some people that its political work has lhc sanction of the  whole religious community of lhe Lower Mainland of British Columbia.

GRAHAM  ROSOMAN,  City Cleric  which in late years has occurred in  urban land values; but the continued adherence lo this ratio, notwithstanding the incnease noted,  has had lhc result that such lands  are at the present time bearing a  burden of taxation quite out of  proportion lo anything thai Ihcy  are producing, thereby tending lo  put them oul of .cultivation. There  are farmers here, and in olher  western towns and cily school districts, whose holdings are in this  way practically being expropriated  and who, unless relief is granted,  will have no alternative but to  abandon Iheir lands, or allow them  to be sold for taxes.  "These facts are generally known  and   recognized  in   municipal   circles of this and other western Provinces, but  little or no etfort has  as yet been made lo find a remedy.  "It is, however, clearly nol to the  inleresl   of   Ihe   community    that  lands capable of profitable use and  situate   within   or   near   the   civic  boundaries   should   be   idle.    Production is lhe basis of prosperity,  and should bc fostered rather lhan  hindered.    If forced lo a tax sale,  lands   under   such    heavy   impost  would   be   most   unlikely   to   Und  buyers, and so would revcrl to the  corporation,   in   which   case   Ihey  would yield no revenue to the cily  al all.,,   From every point of view  il is most undesirable for a municipal corporation lo lake over lands  in this way; real cslale in the hands  of   the   corporation,   beyond   whal  is needed  for municipal purposes,  is   simply .a   (lead   weight   on   the  community.  "Moreover, there is in lhe public  mind an increasing perceolion of  lhe necessity of unity and harmony  as the-.foundation.:.-.of..progress-and  prosperity, and a clearing vision  which in "lhc light of fundamental principles demands the  equalization of lhe incidence of the  'he public burden, and  recognizes  that the only just basis of taxation  is  productive  value.  "In view of past conditions and  future   prospects,   your   committee  believe thai il is al this period of  fhc   utmost    importance    that   the  mailers herein referred lo be carefully   considered   by   the   Council;  , and, therefore, by way of summar-  lizing  them,   and"-pulling   them   in  I concise   form   for   discussion,  we  ���������������������������beg lo recommend as follows:  (1)  I lhal arrangements he made at once  I for. the compilation of'the asscss-  jmehl roll for the coming year; (2)  lhal such arrangements he made as  i will enable the assessor to inspect  'all properties assessed by him with  which    he   is    not   already   quite  familiar,  and   to obtain  all  necessary information   for  making and  from  time  to time eorreeling, the  roll, so that it shall be at. all limes  a   correct' record,  as   required   by  law;   (3)   lhal it be an ''instruction  to the assessor to assess each legal  sub-division or parcel of land separately, iu accordance with the provisions of the Municipal Act;   (4)  that aii average reduction of 10'per  cent be made ih the assessment of  land throughout the nuinicipal'area  (5)  that lhe valuation of improvements    throughouT the    city   and  school dislrict receive increased attention, with  a  view of removing  inequalities,  if  such  be   found  to  cxisf.
