C, January 13, 1916  AND      WALKER'S      WEEKLY  Vol. 8; No. 46; Whole No. 410 ,  Candidates Coming before, the.  Electors for Civic Honors To-day  It cannot be saidvthe usual amount  of .interest has been laken in lhe  civic elections lo be held today, but  the past few days have been fairly  alive with discussion. The mayoralty, conlcsl is between Mr. S. F.  Hartry and Mr. F. B. Dill. Both  gentlemen are well known, and each  has his particular following.  For aldermen wc have six .candidates, and for school trustees, .five.  Mr. Faulkne:* uiurMivSharpe served  on the past year's council   Mr. Fra  Ycl and Mr. Nichol were two of "the  also rans" in the contest last year;  in fact this is Mr. Fravel's third attempt to capture the much coveted  aldermanic honor.   Mr. Albert Johnston arid Mr. W. ���������������������������G. Pell are new  aldermanic material, but both arc  l*u>4>    well'acquainted with the require-  VViients of the city.'-In the voting last  \V: .-year -Mr. Nichol received .61 votes  ,y Vtii.Mr. Fravel's59.''~~~- "���������������������������-"--  c-':��������������������������� V'"Thc"c6ni'cst; for  school, trustee  *rat'epSiycrs.ft    _,,.  tl school atax&teV^  of ^school1 trustees enforce they pro-1  vision of the School Act ancl levy a  rate of $2 per month directly upon  the parents of thc children attending the high school."  ',   MessrsT A.   A."  Faulkner,  H.  P.  .j Jaquest, Gordon Murdoch, Jas. McMahon and S. Teccc are lhe candidates. Mr. Teccc served on thc past  season's board, and on many previous seasons' boards, and hc has  served most faithfully.  Thirty-five or forty people attended the citizens' meeting at the City  Hall last evening. The purpose of  the meeting was to hear what the  candidates for the several offices  wouUrifavc" tbVs'ajrT of "them scl ves"r  and for the out-going city council to  hear and answer any complaints  . that may be brought forward in.  connection with the past year's,  municipal business. Thc meeting  was v neither enthusiastic nor critical. In fact, everybody present  seemed to feel pretty well satisfied  with lhe way thc past season's business had been conducted, and were  prepared to give credit to thc outgoing mayor and aldermen for the  able manner in which thc dillicull  problems confronting . them had  been handled.  Of the thirteen candidates to be  voted on today, only live appeared  at the meeting: Messrs. Hartry, Dill,  Faulkner, Fravel and Jaquest. The  meeting was presided over by Mr.  Dill, as acting mayor. Hc threw the  meeting open, but as no one appeared to have any desire to take  the floor, the candidates present  were call upon.  Mr. Fravel briefly expressed his  appreciation for the support'given  him at the last election, which, if  not sufficient to elect him, afforded  him great satisfaction, and hc asked  the ratepayers to support him more  fully this year. He could only  promise that he would do his best,  if elected, to watch the interests of  the community.  No other -aldermanic candidate  being present, Mr. Jaquest, candidate for school trustee, was called  upon. Mr. Jaquest said he did not  know who was getting thc most fun  out of his candidature���������������������������the citizens  or himself. He had been up before,  and he was up again, and he was  going lo continue coming up until  he got there. He was asked by Mr.  Johnson what purpose hc had; in  his repeated efforts, and he replied  by asking Mr. Johnson what motive  impelled-him when he offered himself as a candidale. He believed he  could give an unbiased service on  the board, perhaps a more unselfish  service than a man of family with  children attending the school. He  was not prepared to say what position hc would take on the question  of high school^ levy upon parents  whose children were attending the  high school, but he did not consider  it was quite fair for say 90 per cent,  of the ratepayers* to be called upon  to.pay for the high school education  of'the 10 per cent. HcSvas strongly,  iii favor of keeping-the high school  in opcrationVltywas just a question  as to what: was the best means of  doing this.yrV ^ ',- "���������������������������'���������������������������%��������������������������� V-"V--'-'v  f^Mr*cFaulknef-entered"the;hall at  th'i s j uncture^ancl Ke-was;called-up-  ;o*i?^th^  dor^and;brcyity;;^  votcrstfor-giVing Kirri^lhe -high-vote"  on' last year's 'ticket,vand ~saidlhis  record of the past year on thc council would have to stand for itself.  If it was- satisfactory" hc expected  to hold the support given him before, if not, then he did riot ask anyone to' vote for him.   On the school  matter, Mr. Faulkner said he was a  candidate for a seat on the board  of school trustees also.   Hc was convinced that it was to the interest of  the community .for the high school  to be kept open and he believed the"  cost of keeping it open and giving  the scholars the best possible, education, should, be borne by all the  ratepayers and not by thc few.  ^Mr.^Hartryrcandidatc^for^mayorr  in a few well chosen words placed  before  the  meeting  his  views  of  what he would do if elected." He  called   attention   to   the   financial  statement now in thc hands of the  ratepayers, and, said hc, with the  other   members   of   the   out-going  council was prepared to stand on  the auditor's report.   He .would, do  this year as much as the Bank of  Montreal would let them do, as they  had the past season.   In the matter  of grant to the Collage Hospital, Mr.  Hartry spoke very earnestly of the  good work being done by thc Misses  Davies, and  believed  the $35 pcr  month would bc money well spent.  Mr. Dill, speaking as chairman of  the finance commilec, referred to  the auditors' report, calling particular attention to the action of thc  council in   deciding   at   the -commencement'of the year to reduce the  taxjlevy, even to the extent of not  providing for the' sinking'funds, in  order to make the tax burden as  sidered justified in taking such a  light as possible on the ratepayers.  He said they had simply followed  lhe practice of other municipalities  in this respect, ancl, while it was  not Hying strictly up to thc letter of  the law, still, in times such as thc  present,  municipalities  were   concourse.  In the course of the evening, Mr.  J. H. Carefoot desired to ask several  questions, among which was one relating to the school building being  kept closed in the mornings until a  few minutes before thc classes were  taken in. He'thought it was an outrage thai the school-children should  bc compelled to stand out in thc  cold with the .thermometer registering zero and worse,- as had been'the  case the past week;  Rev. Mr. Dow, speaking as president of the hospital board, urged  the ratepayers to support the measure to provide for a grant of $35  per monlh out of the revenues of  the city. The grant asked for, he  said, would mean only 75c on $1000  ot assessed valuation. This would  never be .felt spread out oyer the  whole body of ratepayers, but it  would be a.serious mailer, if the $35  per month had to be continued to be  raised by monthly contributions on  thc part of a few of Ihe business  people and olher citizens.     '*   '  Hc was asked by Mr. Faulkner if  hc believed it was fair to ask the  citizens employed by thc saw. mill  and" already, paying $1. per month  hospital fees, to.,pay the-additional  fax :which*, would'be -levied upon  their, properties if .-'the hospital .aid  provision.carried"*.** 7-7v , V7  VIn reply he saicTthe $l,pcr. month,  paid;by_cmplqyeesvof ihc'miir'was'  nYore-i nSib'&l f q'rhij of/an i ri su ra n cc  ffjWu^tlq^  ^hospital!treatmcnCiri>ica'sc.,of-in j ury.  or sickness, -^whereas;-, in the case of  Uic.'6rdinar>^ratepfayer no such provision was made.Vj.T* -7-7 lVy~'-  .-.: Mr." Davics. produced, figures to  show that, under a general tax levy  for-hpspital aid, absentee property  owners would"be* paying something  over $200 per "year toward the. upkeep of this" commendable institution. - ��������������������������� t       " .     ���������������������������  Mr. Fulton spoke al some length  ir. connection,with thc-gencral misunderstanding prevalent in .school  board matters. Thc board of school  trustees, he said, has powers under  the School Act that the City Council  has not. It works under direct control of thc Provincial Department of  -Ed u ca t i 0 n,-a n d-th c-1 evy- u po n-p a r.-.  cnts of children attending the high  school is provided for under lhc  School Act, provided the Board of  School Trustees decides to put it into force. Thc general complaint  against thc old school board or any  particular member thereof, i.s, in his  opinion, quite unjustifiable. At  the time the levy of $2 was made  by the school board, there was a  general demand for reduced taxation, and the schooi'board decided  to adopt lhc provision under thc  School Act which would enable the  board to reduce ils demands upon  thc city. He thought the school  board made ,1 mistake in not taking  the parents of thc high school pupils into their confidence. They  should -have notified them at the  commencement of the term of the  proposed $2 levy, and not allow the  term to almost expire before such  notice was given.   "V  Mr. Carlson spoke of the great  benefits of a high school education,  and thought Ihe high school should  bc carried on out; ofthc general tax  levy ancl not by a levy upon thc  parents of thc children attending.  Mr. Smedley spoke briefly but st rong-  ly in favor of the hospital grant.  News Notes of Enderby and District  . Briefly Told: for Busy Readers  Good morning! How's y'r waterworks '?

These laws  I arc referred to loday as lhe "Blue Laws."   Many  j of Ihem arc slill on thc-statule books of Massa"-  |C'husclts. but arc not  observed, having become  , more of a joke than serious documents.    These  I laws applied more particularly to the conduct of  'individuals, and what they should and"shonld not  do on Sunday. But even in thc old "blue law" days  of Massachusetts they did not go so far as lo attempt to make it a crime to sell goods during a  week day.   Thc distinction of having put through  such a law falls upon Enderby's City Council, 'it  was accomplished at thc instigation"of a number  , of Enderby's businessmen.   When thc matter was  |first brought before the Council, there was nol a  j majority of thc businessmen on the petition.-and.  lo overcome this, the pctiton was taken to lhe  Chinese wash houses, ih connection with which  small Chinese store arc operated, and the proprietors of Ihesc were induced to put their names  on the petition.   By this means the proprietors of  thc oldest and largest nicrchandi.se stores in Enderby were outnumbered bv the aid of the three  Chinese peanut stands, and il was on this kind of  a petition lhal the City Council passed the unpopular by-law.   This is the layout en which the  Cily Council permitted itself lo bc made the scape  goat behind which some of our merchanls would  hide.   Wc arc printing ihe By-law as it now reads  aflcr final amendment last Wednesday evening.  It should be framed as a curiosity, along with the  old "blue laws."   Il is the first lime wcliavc ever  heard of a municipal body attempting to make thc  serving of the public by dulv licensed traders a  crime, punishable by a fine.   Thc object of thc  Chinese and whitemen petitioners in asking for  the b\'-law was to compel certain businessmen lo  refuse lo do business Thursday afternoon.    In  olher words, lhc man who wanted to go fishing  Thursday afternoon and was afraid,to do so for  fear a competitor might do some business in his  absence, soughL lhc aid of thc Citv Fathers, and  lorcccl the by-law through.   Of course, thc law is  unconstitutional and any fine imposed under il  could not bc collected, if any magistrate could bc  found foolish enough to impose a fine, but the law  is (here just thc same, and it acts, not against thc  storekeeper bul against the buying public.

In the first place, if his Butter  wrappers are neatly printed with his name and  the brand of the butter on thc label, the storekeepers can readily sell the butler at 5c a pound  more than he can get for butter wrapped in paper  that is not printed, and the butler-maker gets the  advantage in 5c a pound, more for his butter from  the merchant.  It is thc duty of every butter maker to comply wilh 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 butler wraps printed.  They do not like the idea of having 500 or 1000  buller wraps on hand. To accommodate this  class of butter makers, Thc Press has printed up  a quantity of "Custom" Butter Wraps. They are  printcdjwith thc words "Fresh Dairy Butter" but  do not bear the name of the maker. . However,  -tliesc=_wjcappers-fiIUtho=requircnients-of-*theHaw^  governing ibis point, and can be bought in small  quantities at thc rate of 50c a hundred in 100 or  50 lots.

Editor Enderby Press:  Dear  Sir:     Your  article  in   thc  Dec. 23rd number of The Press on  why Enderby is losing trade must.'emig  have found many a response in the! eign  country as fully as possible against  its effects, and that is where our  vast and rich prairies will come in.  Out lhere is where we musl 'dig in'  to meet lhe last charge of the enemy  We will have to produce by far the  most genuinely tempting magnet for  emigrating people in the world.  There will be nothing like them,  and there wi  ing.    Where  what they do in Ireland. From a  London, Ei g., paper we reproduce  lhe following:  "In a recent crop competition  promoted by the Sulphate of Ammonia Association, which was open  to England, Wales and Ireland, all  Ihe prizes in the potato class were  carried off by Irish growers.

In certain  districts for a year or  two it has been common talk how  far cheaper il was to buy in Salmon  . Arm or Armstrong than in Enderby.  Il was claimed there was almost a  saving of $1 in every $5 spent in  our neighboring towns.  I think the lack of a creamery  has had little to do wilh this. In  one of the districts you mention  this certainly has not been the  cause of the farmers shopping oul-j 'dreadnoughts' in  of Enderby. I have seen yearly  more and more men shopping in  Salmon Arm because it was so  much cheaper.  As far as surface attractions go-,  there is no comparison between the  attractions of Salmon Arm and Enr  derby. Salmon Arm is down a long  steep hill, and in bad weather thc  roads are far worse than those to  Enderby; it has no big buildings for  stores, no concreie sidewalks and is  ranis go?

That is the vital question for Canada, for the Empire, for the Allies,  for civilization, and the answer can  be put in one word���������������������������preparation.  "We must prepare for peace as  we did not, unfortunately, prepare  for  war.    We  could   not  get  our  dreadnoughts  voted   for  this  war,  but  we  can   get   our. immigration  the line of battle  for the victories of peace.    I sec  that our brisk and-busy neighbors  ���������������������������the Americans���������������������������are preparing already to attract to their country as  large a share Vis possible of after-  the-war migration.   They are going  in for a policy of preparedness all  around over there.   We must not get  left at the post.   Whal we want to'  do  is to pick out  our own  great  West and put it in the show window.'   We want to be able to got  of 24 tons, five cwts. per statute  acre.

Many of  the  meib who  have left Enderby did so-most reluctantly,  but  the  Enderby  storekeepers cannot expect thc farmers  to.be philanthropists.    Thc farmer  must  buy   where  he  can   get   the  greatest variety of choice and the  cheapest goods.  It is too late to get many of these  . men back, and Enderby will have a  tough job to stop the landslide. But  it could be done.

AFTER THE WAR  PROBLEMS CANADA MUST FACE  - Prcpaiation for the vital and  wholly unprecedented problems  which will face Canada at thc end  of thc war was urged by Hon. Robt.  Rogers, Minister of Public Works,  at Ottawa, a few days ago. Mr.  Rogers* says the country should get  ready for peace, as, unfortunately,  it did not prepare for war.   He em-  =-phasized���������������������������the=aclivity���������������������������on^-similar  lines already begun in the United  States, and declared lhat the present was Canada's greatest opportunity in paving the way to become  thc most progressive nation in the  Empire.  "I tell you," said Mr. Rogers, "the  prairie country is going to do its  share in .saving Canada when the  war is over. II is helping mightily  to save it and save the Empire right  now.   Our boys there are voluntcer-  A South Salt Springs, B. C, far7  mer writing in the.Family Herald  'and'Weekly Star,*.gives this excellent  advice:     '-'What   will   be  the  conditions    in    British    Columbia  after the. war? Is^it too soon to ask  this?   I think not, for severar'rea-  sons.   If we are to make the best of  our opportunities how is the time  to consider what we ought to do.  And victory may not be so very far  distant after all that we can afford  to delay in doing so.   We all agree  that the war can have only one ending,   victory   for  us   on   our  own  terms, and we are fully prepared  to fight on until we achieve this.  The little flutter in' the Balkans may  prove.to be a grave disaster for our  enemies, and may hasten thc end, j  and not prolong it as some pessimists seem to think.   Hence there is  no-time  like* the  present  to  consider  what  condilions   will   arise,  and how we can best meet them.'  "I have heard many sav.that re-  !  ing with great eagerness, and, as  the statistics show, in a most creditable proportion to population. Then  they are thc right kind of lads to  make soldiers.    The boys out there!  are great fighters.   They are in this  war to see it through. -But just as  surely as the Westerners are now  taking a big share in the war, the  West will lake a big share-in protecting Canada from the financial,  industrial  and  commercial  consequences which the devastation of  war is sure to let loose on all mankind.  "When the war.stops it will be  like a fast express train running  into a solid cliff. The whole world  will be rushing full speed ahead  with war preparations. Then suddenly these will not be wanted.  Unless the greatest caution is exercised, there is bound to be vast industrial difficulty, such as we*will  regret. It is almost inevitable, and  will be world-wide,  "The great pressing question for  us in Canada is how to fortify this  pairing the damage  done by war  will occupy all available capital for  long enough." This sounds plausible  and  I  might  have  accepted  it  as  correct did I not have pi oof to the  contrary.   I am only one individual  yet I have received quite a number  of enquiries from many parts of the  world  about conditions here,  and  the opportunities our provincchas  lo offer to settlers.   And very many  of these enquirers  have considerable sums of money wherewith to  buy and stock farms, or to go into  business.  "I have letters from Riga/Mexico,  Tasmania, Spain, Central Africa,  and many other places, yet, as I  have pointed out, I am only an individual, arid with limited means  for reaching would-be investors.  "To induce farmers to buy land  here we must revise condilions so  as to secure to them legitimate  profits. The machinery for placing  farm produce in the homes of the  consumers is- too costly, and must j  be altered if farmers are to secure  a fair share of the ultimate cost of  our produce. This can be done,  and must be, if we are to come into  our own."  each and every year, every shoo situate within,the corporate limi'ts of  the c.ty of Enderby shall bc closed  and remain closed from the hour of  i^.dJ in the afternoon until the  hour of midnight;  3.- That   the   provisions of the  next preceding section hereof shall  not apply to thc Thursday of any  week  in  which  there -Shall  occur  any other legal holiday or half-holiday  than   the  half-holidav   herein  provided for;        "      ���������������������������    -V  .   4.

This    development,  coming as it did one hundred and  Ihirty-ninc years after Ihe declaration  of independence,  revealed  almost in an instant lhc silent growth  of nearly one and one-half centuries.    All   the  nations  al   war,  and  others  previously  unknown   to  the  Uniled   Stales  as   borrowers,  have  come across the water for credit,  after London, Paris, and Berlin had  closed Iheir money chests lo those  accustomed  lo financial assistance.  Eugene   Hector,   financial   editor  of  Ihe Chicago  Tribune,  puts  this  concretely   when   he  says   that   in  1015 the. Uniled Stales made traceable loans of .9889,750,000 lo foreign  countries,   and   wilhin   thc   twelve  monlhs brought back from foreign  holders si,500,000,000 of American  sccurilies.    lis combined assistance,  lo   olher   countries   totaled   aboul  ^2,389,750,000.  Meanwhile, while these tremendous loans were being made, the actual money in circulation in lhc  United Stales increased from Dec.  1, 1014, to Dec.l, 1015, from ������������������3,630,-  218,000 to $3,850,000,000, or a net  gain of $220,850,000.

Mr. Cunningham was a  member of the first board of horticulture in British Columbia and has  dcvolcd his life lo fostering the agricullural development of the Province.  "Nothing  in  the history of  this  oflice has given  me more sa lis faction   lhan   lhis   news," . staled   Mr.  Cunningham  to  lhe  Victoria Colonist. " I can see an immense possibility in   "British   Columbia  polalo  growing.     If  we  want  an  ob.jecl:  lesson in (he value of lhis important  -product we gel il in Germany. Germany has done more with the potato  lhan  any other nalion  in  the  world. Thc Kaiser would have been  on his back long ago had it not been  for Ihe valuable poialo.    The Germans  have  turned   il  to  numerous  scientific purposes.    As British Columbia  seems  to  excel   in  climate  and soil  for the production of the  best classes of, lupers over ils whole  extensive area,  [look lo sec wonderful prospects ahead  for the sel-  iler.    Evci;y settler should  have a  field in  potatoes.    They will grow  well anywhere in the Province from  the boundary lo thc Arctic Circle, so  the outlook  is gratifying.    All lhat  requires to bc done now is lo keep  oul Ihe disease. -In a return published   from  California il^ is staled  that Ihe lands of California have become so polluted-with' fungus diseases lhal profitable production has  gone to the vanishing point, the best  result now being one hundred sacks  lo lhe acre.    In our own Province  we can raise 200 sacks, or ten ions,  of excellent tubers lo the acre.  "So far as this ollice is concerned,  we will flo all we can lo keep out  disease.    The  carrying  companies  are co-operating with us by insisting  on   certificates' of   inspection.  Today we are in receipt of orders  for several tons of British Columbia  polaloes lo go lo Toronto.    A few  years ago lhal would have sounded  like carrying coals lo Newcastle. By  n ex I   week   wc  expect   lo  have  invaded Ihe Chicago market.   All lhis  [means   a   return   in   cash,   at   good  market    prices,    which  wc greaily  need in lhis Province al thc present  time.

London', Jan. 11.���������������������������Rumors persist  of an early attack on Salonica by  Auslro-Gcrman-Bulgarian forces, as  many thousands of Iroops are being  concentrated in Ihe Monastir region,  facing the French and British fronl.  "It would be useless lo pretend  lhat Salonica i.s not a subject of  much disquietude," says the military writer in Beck's Weekly. "Apparently, the Allies mean lo hold it.  Obviously, if the Germans go after  it as they went alter Antwerp, il i.s  going to bc difficult to hold. For all  wc hear of continuous landings, the  forces there are slill believed to he  uncomfortably small for the task  Ihcy have on hand, and uncomfortably large to be fed and munitioned  from the sea through a single port.  "If it turns oul that the Germans  have nothing to fear from Roumania, or from Russia through  Roumania, they may even find it  quite convenient lo have a quarter  million of first-class Allied troops  where they can do no great harm,  instead of having them put down  where they could do a greal deal.  Thc opinion of Ihe military writers  seems lo be lhal lhere is very little  hope of reversing the Balkan decision, and thai il would be wise lo  lake the soldiers lo where their  weight would count more. If il be  true that Russia has withdrawn her  men from the Roumanian border,  the others might as well leave  Salonica."
