Have you seen the first two episodes of "The Master Key"'drama  now running Friday and Saturday  evenings at the Opera House? This  picture play is filled with dramatic  climaxes, and is of^intense interest  to young and old. It is accompanied by other reels of comedy  and melodrama, all carrying a heart  touch that is true to life.  The annual meeting of the Enderby District Conservative Association  the commencement .of, the term'. A  meeting of many of the parents .was  held at A. McPherson's furniture  store last "Saturday evening, and  Mr. Teece, chairman of the board,  appeared at the request of the/parents to explain the attitude of the  school trustees. He told the meet-  ing that at thc .commencement of  the year, the board had been urged  lo keep down-the operating expenses of the school, and at that time  he and his colleagues decided that*  the fee of $2 per month should be  charged, .though no official notice  to _this_effect had. been_giyen..._The  staff.ythatii the;-Austrians 'have'*suc- ,;  'ceeded-in.'soine places in breaking-<  'intoI'ttie*:.Italian advance positions,--"  but it is declared they have been-"  \ . 4  hurledback; aflcr sanguinary hand- .,  board, he said, was'-strictly within  its rights, under the school law, to  levy and collect this fee, and he believed it was thc proper thing to do.  He thought that all parents not disposed to pay the fee should notify  the school board before thc Xmas  holidays so that the'board would  know' what to do when school reopens in January, and he gave the  impression that the high school  would probably be closed if tliere  were not enough children who were  prepared to pay the monthly fee.  The parents feel thai this charge  of $2 per monlh is uncalled for. All,  or most of the parents whose children attend the high school,, are  ratepayers, and pay the regular tax  levied for school purposes and they  do not feel disposed to pay this additional fee. The Cily Council has  never refused to provide the necessary funds to keep thc high school  running, jhey argue, and they sec no  reason wliy they should have to  pay this special high school fee.  And most, of them' arc refusing to  do so. What the outcome will bc  remains to "be seen. It would be a  deplorable thing if he high school  should be closed, when there does  not appear to bc any good reason  for it. The ratepayers have paid up  better this year than last, and the  city is not pinched for necessary  finances, and, this being thc case,  it docs not seem reasonable for the  school board to impose thc special  Mabel Lake-road,' thc city agreed to  supply a half-inch water service to  a standpipe near the.-Avater' main,  to be erected by the Department of  .������������������������������������������������������-".

Thc Clerk drew attention to the  sand proposition, of which nothing  has been heard for some months,  and suggested lhat as the end of the  year was at hand, it would be well  to make some disposition of lhe  matter.. It was decided that as.thc  aldermen did not consider there  was more than $25 worth of sand at  the sandpilc, the sum of $375 bc  written off thc sand account.  The Clerk laid before the council  a list of persons and firms liable to  payment of trade licenses, from  which il appeared that some persons \Verc trading without a license  and the matter was placed in the  hands of Constable Bailey with instructions to collect, or take legal  proceedings.  A letter was received from Ccp-  crly, Rounsfcll & Co.," drawing, intention to the Dominion War Loan  fund and suggesting that part of the  city's sinking funds might be prof  filably invested in same. Clerk  Rosoman was instructed to ascertain if Messrs. ,'Bui;gess. & Co., the  city's fiscal agents, were interested  in this issue, as it was thought if the  city did any business in this connection it should be done through  them.

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 2, "1915  OUTLOOK GROWING BRIGHTER  When Manager Stevens has anything in lhc line  oi" good news for thc people of.Enderby and district hc as free lo give il oul. He tells us that thc  lumber outlook never looked brighter, and he  anticipates a very busy season next year.. On a  recent tripl to tbe coast cities, lie was .surprised  :to sec lhe optimism which prevailed,:particularly  in tbe lumber industry. The demand promises to  bc far in excess'of present sawing ���������������������������"facilities of B.  G. mills, and already prices are stiffening and arc  quoted subject to change over night;  Mr. Stevens is authority for the statement that  he has contracted for twelve million feci of logs  for next season's cut, and he intends lo push the  Enderby mill to its lull capacity Svith thc opening  of spring. This means much to Enderby. It is  apparent already that there will be employment  for every available man this winter in the logging camps and in clearing land. This docs nol  ���������������������������mean llilit we shall see a normal winter in the  camps, nor that as many men will bc employed,  but the number of idle menjuis been greatly reduced the pasl. year, and the number available  for work is much lower lhan in ordinary seasons.  Therefore, there should bc no idle men in the  'dislricl this winter. There will bc employment  for all.  If you can'l help, stand aside and give some  oilier man a chance.  BUSINESS. IS BOOMING  The National Cash Register people, of Dayton,  Ohio, are great boosters. They believe in the use  of printers ink lo lhe limit of half a million a  yeur--nnd Ihen seine. Recently their Toronto  ollice issued a circular which fuirly~1mbbIcTt>~\rcr  wilh optimism. "Merchanls everywhere," it  says, "tell our 800 salesmen that business is booming. Farmers have had a record crop, at big  prices, wilh big demand al home and abroad.  Slocks of manul'aclured material are short, and  labor i.s in greal demand. Exports largely exceed  imports. Factories are busy, a greal many working over lime. More freight ears are needed, and  .steamers are taxed lo capacity. Canada has, in  proportion to population, greater exportable surplus of wheal lhis year than any other country in  the world. Millions of dollars are passing over  the merchanls' counters."  Most men contract liver complaint from reading the symptoms on the bottle.  BRITISH COLUMBIA'S BLOOD OFFERING  In llie November number of thc Sunset Magazine, published al San Francisco, Arno Dosch has  a splendid article entitled, "The Blood-Oll'cring of  British Columbia," dealing with lhe altitude of  this Province toward the Motherland in the great  war, and the heroic work performed by British  Columbia volunteers al the front. "British Columbia i.s," he says, more interested in Ibis war  than England, if the spirit of ils citizens mean  anything. They are given over to lhe war. They  think oi' nothing else.    *    '    *    This is not sur  prising when you consider that Western Canada  has enlisted fifty thousand men. Of these over  twenty-one thousand were from British Columbia. Consider the drain on a new country where  every man counts. It is another matter in England wherc a man who loses a job may spend the  rest of his life trying to get another. England itself, with the angry cannon pounding at the lines  of thc Allies only three hour's away and the Zeppelins bringing the war right inlo London, can  show no such record as this." The writer deals at  length'with the way the Canadian troops were received by lhc Londoners, but shows how thc boys  from the West rose above thc snubbing which  was accorded Ihem and thus proved thc metal in  them. But il hurt, nevertheless. "A young Canadian of my acquaintance," says hc, "from New  Westminster said to mc one day, 'I used to think  I was an Englishman. I have always considered  myself a subject of thc King and the equal of any  man in lhc Empire. But 1 find over here that I  am considered something less.' Another man  whom 1 had known in Vancouver said to me one  day as wc worked our way among the civilians  on thc Strand, 'If I had known there were all these  men on thc streets of London, I should never have  given up my good job in Vancouver to come over  here to be snubbed.' "     .  "If this information, comes now for the first  time to most people in British Columbia they can  take pride in thc fact that thc soldiers they sent  were loo loyal to let it be known at home how  they felt about it. * * * But . . '.. there is no  longer any doubt in England about the quality of  the Canadian troops. There should never have  been any in thc first place, it was diic only to thc  gradual separation between the Mother Country  and the colony, but lhat is past now and there is  a belter understanding between England and Canada now than there ever was before."  Buy your seed early. If you arc a member of  the Farmers' Institute you wall find it to your interest to order through thc secretary.  DISCUSSING CANADIAN BANK SYSTEM  Here a rid There throughout Canada, newspapers  arc awakening to lhc importance of discussing the  Canadian bank policy. This is one of thc signs  of the times. It shows that- thc people are becoming alive to thc question of bank reform. In  a recent issue the Revelstoke Review put it this  way: ...   ��������������������������� ' .  "Had.the kaiser been allowed to construct a financial  system for Canada, could hc have "devised an engine  more "elf ective in destroying the'efficiency "of the Canadian people?. England, by special issues of small  notes amounting to ������������������300,000,000,'has so developed thc  'efficiency of ber people that every, available, man and  woman has employment .at the .highest wages in her  history, has drawn thousands of skilled'laborers from  our army of unemployed, and is now taking hundreds  of coal miners from Nanaimo, Fernie and Alberta  coal districts lo work in English, collerics. Russia mis  imported hundreds of Canadians to work on railroad  construction. England has thc lowest percentage of  pauperism since 1817, while Canada, which has no excuse for any pauperism at all, has reduced so much of  the population to that condition that the charitable organizations can'l sec how they can bc carried through  the winter. It is painful and humiliating to think of,  write of, or publish Ihesc shameful facts, but it is a  condition and nol a theory, and,should be utilized to  ell'cct reforms that will prevent its recurrence forever."  Careful, co-operative buying of" thc necessary  mill feeds is profitable, and.will lead to healthy  co-operation in all live stock operations in" any  neifdihnrhnorl.*. __       _;   GET THE RIGHT HABIT  Mr. Bernard K. Sandwell, in thc Financial  Times, discussion lhe question*of the need of thc  strictest economy in Canada, says in part: "This  is not to say that Canadians should not spend  money. They should���������������������������whenever thc spending of  H is likely to save more money in other waysL It  is quite legitimate tobuyan automobile���������������������������if tlie  purchase is going lo reduce one's doctor bill or enable one lo live in a place wherc the rent is lower.  It is quite legitimate to go away for a holiday���������������������������if  one's health Or lhal of one's lainily is going to bc  impaired by not doing so. It is most legitimate to  read good books and intelligent periodicals���������������������������for  without them one becomes a fool, and folly is the  most expensive thing in life. But lo buy an automobile merely because Jones has one, or take a  long trip because Mrs. Smith went last year, or  read a score of magazines a monlh because they  only cost fifteen cents each and you have "got thc  habit"���������������������������these things arc alwaysbad, and in the  present situation are liable to be the ruin of Canada. And when you do buy, buy something that  was. made in Canada���������������������������unless you are quite satisfied lhal the Canadian maker is not turning out a  good aritcle, in which case il is patriotism to help  put him out of business."*  Here is something lo remember when it comes  to lhe matter of what lo eat: There is said to be  more actual food value in one pound of raisins  than in three dozen eggs, three pounds of lean  beef, two and a half quarts of milk, or one pound  of sirloin steak. Raisins arc concentrated nutriment.   Please pass llie raisin bread.  Don't winler scrub callle; finish Ihem off now  and lose as lillle money as possible.

In the first place, if his Butter *  wrappers are neatly printed with his name and  =th"e"*"*lJf"^  keepers can readily sell the butter, at 5c a pound  more than hc can get for butter wrapped in paper  that is not printed, and the butter-maker gets the  advantage in 5c a pound more for his butter from  the merchant. .  It is the duty of every butter maker to comply with thc law in this matter. Some butter'  makers have only a cow or two, and make so little '  butterthat it does not~appear~ to-them that theyV  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 buller makers, The Press has printed up  a quantity of "Custom" Butter Wraps. They are  printed with thc words "Fresh Dairy Butler" but  do not bear the name of the maker. However,  these wrappers fill the 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 yoii do riot repuire butter wraps in  larger lots, take these wraps in lesser quantities.

Alice  Peacock, of Grindrod, has a son in thc trenches "some  where in France," having left with one of the early  contingents from Canada. It cannot be said, therefore,  that she has no vital interest on the side of thc Allies.  But she writes in the spirit of the true Briton, and lief  words arc the more refreshing in these days of narrow hate and bitterness bred of thc strife. It is humiliating that there is not more of this spirit of broadness  and depth of humanity in lhe .hearts of our own people; humiliating, because hatefulness breeds contempt,  not in the hated but in tlie hater, and we become engulfed in the whirlpool of bitterness which sours the  heart and shrivels the soul.���������������������������Ed.)

GREAT BRITAIN ECONOMIZING  One of thc most trustworthy correspondents  sending news from London to Canadian newspapers is Mr. F. A. Mackenzie. His summary, of  thc war and general conditions in England, which  appears regularly in the Vancouver Province,  generally is fair and dependable, though he is not  permitted to see any farther into the secrets of the  War Office than anyone else. But so far as he can  get at the news, he gives it without any effort to  misrepresent or to indulge in rhetorical soft-soap  for colonial consumption.   Under date of Nov.  27th he says: V f  "Progress, of the war here during the past week,  while unspectacular, has been of the utmost importance. More careful organzation of our national resources in every department continues apace. Great  efforts are being made to promote economy by^ the administration. As an example, numbers of men who  were employed in special branches of the military  service at the beginning of the war for limited periods  are now offered their discharge or renewal at more  moderate rates; the London motormen engaged from  last year at six shillings a clay are now offered, when  their term ends,/ a renewal at thrpe shillings. All  Government factories are being scrutinized and unskilled laborers of military age are being discharged,  women's labor being more and more employed. Th*  improvements in the machinery of war worked out  It always has been recognized by thc world at  large that thc British people never are afraid to  face facts, and always "are'prepared to give an  enemy ^credit for what he is able to accomplish.  Has. this trait of the British character become  atrophied? Is it a thing of. the past? It would  appear so" But appearances, wc believe, are deceiving. - If the true British spirit were permitted  expression we believe it would still have lhe deep;  true ring of old. But instead of cur getting the  straight stuff which John Bull used to give from  the shoulder, wc have to be content with such  rhetorical hotchpotch as the censorship will let  pass. And all because, as one British writer puis  it, we have several cabinet ministers who suddenly  became gifted .with a supernatural sense wherfthe  war. broke out, and, prompted by this mystic  power, "they came to the conclusion that the.peo-  plc of Great Britain are mucl. too depressed to  stand the news of a defeat, and much too boisterous to stand tlie full story of, a -victory. * Thev nation itself did riot know this"before the war,-and  a good slice of it remains unconscious of it even  now. But there it is. We evident!) don't-know  ourselves as well as our cabinet, ministers know  us." It. is this spirit .of .suppression which  the London Times refers to when.it says:  .'"For"fifteen months the name of.tGreat.Britain^and.  the cause of the Allies .have, suffered.from the.faulty-  and^inadequate pre^entaUon,of;'British...newl5'-tq'*rthe  pressqf the "world.

When it got through thc censor's hands it read:  The tumult and the shouting die,  .-  Thc captains^ .... depart.  Sir John Simon, apologist for thc censor, told  the House of Commons: "I understand that the  gentleman who cut out thc three words 'and lhe  kings' felt it would hc wrong to say, as no kings  were present, that any of them departed." Which  moved Mr. Outhwait, M., P., to enquire: "Is the  country slill paying for the services of this idiot?"  COSNT OF AMMUNITION  The assertion of the war Correspondents on tlie  west front that 50,000,000 shots were fired by the  French artillery in three days preceding thc grca t  September offensive, is-demolished in an article  by Richard Gaedke, considered one of the sanest  military critics. Accepting General Jolfre's  figures on the number of guns available as true,  this writer points out that, to reach 50,000,000  shots each gun would have had to fire some 17,000  charges in the three days. Even new guns, direct  from the shops, could not hold out, even if it were  physically possible to serve them so fast, which it  is not. At most, Gaedke says, the field guns could  not have fired more than 1,000. shots a day, and  the heavy guns much less. Even thc smaller total,  however, is imposing enough. _It means an expenditure in ammunition of $25,000,000 to $60,-  000,000. '  Cold feet!   The tiling we fear we bring to pass.

MACHINE GUN FUND EXPLAINED  Explaining the Dominion Government's attitude with regard to  the funds subscribed for the purchase of additional machine guns,  Senator James A. Lougheed, who  was acting as minister of militia  when the movement was started,  slated lo the Vancouver Province at  Hotel Vancouver a few days ago,  that, while ihe federal authorities,  in the meantime, were applying the  money already sent in towards paying the cost of rapid-firers, there  was a probability, of the entire  amounts being diverted to the Canadian Patriotic Association and  other charitabic,, organizations in  the form, of grants., No. more subscriptions were being accepted by  the government,' he added^ and in  many cases the cheques for the purchase of guns have been returned.  Replying to the criticism expressed regarding the action of thc  Government in accepting subscriptions when already orders had been  placed for the entire supply of guns  available, Senator Lougheed gave  an emphatic denial lo the reports  that he was responsible for the  start of the movement to furnish  funds to supplement Ihe quotas of  quick-firers supplied by the army  authorities. "1 never issued any appeal to the public for funds," he declared. "The movement originated  wilh certain enterprising newspapermen who interviewed Canadian ollicers who had returned  from thc front and quoted them as  emphasizing the necessity for our  troops, being supplied with more  machine guns in order to successfully cope with the German regiments, which had a preponderance  of Ihem. Thc articles were widely  circulated and out of this there subsequently arose a feeling in favor of  helping the Government buy guns."  W. J.

Thc Post contends  I lhal without "selling the skin be-  I fore killing lhc hear," it may bc as-  i sumed victory for the Allies is as-'  ; assured if only because, without uii-  : clue   strain,   Great    Britain    could  i maintain a naval blockade hide hn-  ilelv  and   history   has  shown   thai  j such pressure alone would, in thc  ���������������������������end, secure victory.  A dispatch lo the Pall Mall  Ga-  'zelte from Berne says, "there is cle-  I dared to be undoubted foundation  ! for the report lhal Emperor Will-  liam  will  make  an  open   oiler  ol  peace' through   President   Wilson  after the emperor's coining state entry   into   Constantinople."     Peace  talk," the dispatch says, is being suddenly revived in the German press  in the most significant manner, and  ! various newspapers are now talking  I of peace and the desirability of per-  i milting it to bc discussed.  1    The     Arossiche     Zeitung     says:  ;"Everv serious plan for early peace  will find us ready and eager to give  jit our-instant consideration.    Ger-  j nuinv i.s prepared at a moment's notice   to  accept   peace  which   shall  ! correspond lo some, extent, at least,  iwith thc enormous sacrifices which  jlhe war has imposed on it, which,  | at the same time, shall be commen-  Isurate in a certain degree with ihe  j results obtained.    It is impossible,  j however, to entertain ideas of peace  unless our enemies  do  their part  and  arc also ready  for sarcifiees.  Let  us  assure them  in  a  friendly  manner that it is high time for them  to abandon their threats of thc destruction   of    thc    German   nation,  j threats which arc nothing but vcr-  1 binge.".  The Folkszeituna sounds a remarkable warning. This* pancr says,  "It goes without saying, of course,  that all nations have an ardent desire for peace, the German nation  included. If Germany had 1o deal  onlv. with France and England it  would not be impossible to arrive  at means of mutual concessions and  compensations and to conclude  peace without fear of future complications. However, we still have  to reckon with Russia, who. notwithstanding: tremendous losses  which it has suffered, is recovering  wilh stupefving rapidity. All the  same it is- to -Gcrmanv's advantage  of a fs'voraMc situation to start  pourparlers for. an early peace. If  it allows the present opportunity to  pass it will bc too late."
