A Grand Templars Lodge has  been organizd in Enderby, and  meets Friday evenings in the I.O.O.  F. Hall. Persons wishing to join  mav do so at any meeting. The  present Chief Templar is A. C.  Skaling; secretary, Arthur Teece;  treasurer, Fred Johnson.  Armstrong is making great preparations for the winter noultry  show to bc held there on Tuesday  nnd Wcdncsdnv, Jan. 19th and 20th.  Several Fnderby bird fanciers are  getting their prize winners inlo  shape to carry away some of the  prizes.  Through a typographical error in  Ihe Press last week a child was re-  norted born to Mr. and Mrs. J. Dale.  The initial should have been 'A,  as Mr. and Mrs. Alec Dale are the  happy parents. We congratulate  Mr. and Mrs. A. Dale and apologize  to Mr. and Mrs. J. Dale.  The New Year dance given by the  Mara M. & A. A. last Friday evening  proved a great success, both as io  attendance and pleasure. Quite a  number of Enderby dancers and  those of Grindrod were in attendance.  Mr. E. C-. Wheeler took his son to  Vernon Tuesday to have the X-ray  put on his. arm to discover* if the  fall recently suffered by the boy  had, caused the fracture of thc bono.  To the relief of all, the X-ray demonstrated lhal there was no fracture  but simply a contraction of the  muscles, which'it is believed can be  easily broken.  The new 3c war stamp is now being issued by lhe Postoffice Department. It i.s not a regular 3c stamp,  or a new stamp of 3c denomination,  but is the "regular 2c stamp wilh  "1, T. c." printed across its face.  These will be' used in place of lhe  lc and 2c stamps heretofore mad--  use-of to meet thc requirements of  the war tax regulations. The Enderby postoffice has made application for the special 3c,stamp, and  will be prepared to supply same ih  a few days.  A'"meeting of. the Enderby To-  bacco.JFii'nd .was. held at thc home  of Mrs. E. Gray Monday afternoon,  for the purpose of*electing officers  and planning for thc year's operations. , Mrs. - S.

In  thc  matter of aldermen  and  derby my heartfelt thanks for the  Xmas gifts received from ihem, ancl  lo wish them all a Bright and Pros-  school  Inislees possible candidates  perous New Year.'  Sincerely,    Coup  D. K. Glen.  (A similar request comes to  The Press form Private Jas. Green,  who has .been confined'to the hospital for some weeks as ihe result  of an operation for rupture.).  ' Private J. E. Pacey writes from  Shornclifi'e: "I received a" lovely  cake from the Enderby Tobacco  Fund last Tuesday and I must say  il was lhc best cake I lasted "for a  long lime. Il certainly was a treat,  and I wish through" your- paper to  thank.the Enderby tobacco Fund  and the kind "people of En derby-  very, much indeed for-Iheir. kindness'to mc. ; I also wish them ,;r  Merry Christmas and a Happy and  Prosperous New Year."   -       .    -  Private Robt.

Wc do nol know  when wc go back to the firing line.  the toe to dreamy waltzes, enliven  ing two-sleps and other movements  of grace and symphony rendered by  the Enderby orchestra, always look  forward lo a good lime when lhc  local Knights of Pythias give  their annual ball, and they expected  more than lhe usual lasl Friday  evening at the New Year dance.  And they got it. The dancers in attendance numbered 130; the floor  TiiHrhairTirrangcnienls wereexcel-  lenl, the music good and������������������������������������������������������ refreshments the best and plentiful. The  rest remained for the dancers to  provide, and-when it was all over  it was voted unanimously to have  been "the best ever."  ENDERBY CURLERS BUS Y  Though a bit late in starting the  'roar.in' game this season, Enderby  knights of thc besom and stanes are  sure of having all the playing Iheir  enthusiasm calls for. Jas. Evans i.s  the artist on laying the ice, and he  has two sheets as fine as ever was  played upon. Schedule games are  not" yet being played, bul, as there  are only six rinks playing, the boys  are getting almost a nightly service.  Following arc the rinks chosen:  Murph'v, skip; 3rd", A.

Private Pal Mowat writes thc officers of the Fund: "Received today  the grandest parcel of good things  from lhe kind-people of Enderby.  Cannot begin to write how much  the things were appreciated by my  comrades and myself. Will the  committee convey to all names in  thc parcel my deepest thanks for  'their kindness. - Wishing everyone  a Prosperous and Happy New Year.  Sincerely, Pat, Mowat."  . From Private Hatcher comes the  following characteristic note:  "I now write you the few lines  thanking the people of thc Enderby  -To b a cco-Fu n d-f o iuX m as_p a rccl-aiid.  also for lhe cake. I did not have  lo use it as a bomb. I guess it did  more good lhan throwing it al llie  Germans. Wishing you all a Merry  Xmas and Happy New Year, from  Somewhere in Plunder,  J. M. Hatch eh."  And  from, the heart of Private  Smedley this .token of. thankfulness  comes:'"! have just received a line  parcel from-llie Kiulerby^Tobaeco  Fund. The contents of Ihe parcel  were fine eatables and wearing apparel, having arrived intact, inspite  of ils long journey., If you could  have seen my pals and I silting  round the parcel, all anxiously  awaiting results, and if you could  picture we fellows silling around  after the meal, each wearing a look  of satisfaction, both you and lhe  committee would acknowledge thai  the parcel had not been sent in vain.  11 is very, very nice lo know lhal,  even if we arc away from home, on  such a queer campaign, lhat those  al home are constantly thinking of.  us and wishing for our welfare, and  I can positively say lhal such feeling is very gratifying. Thanks once  again for the parcel. Best wishes to  vou all for. Xmas. Moping you have  a very happy one.   , Gko. Smkdu'y"  CIVIC ELECTIONS  Next Mondav will be nomination  day. and tbe'following Thursday  the civic elections will be held. II  one were to be guided by the inleresl apparent on thc streets or in  business circles, one could not believe that election day is so near.  One thing, seemingly, has been (let  inilely settled, and lhat is that lhc  present incumbent of lhe mayoralty,  Mr. S. Poison, will not bc a candidate for re-election, he having announced his intention to enter thc  contest at Vernon. Thc News says  lhal lhe announcement of his inlen-  meniioncd arc few; though on the  day of nominalion there is likely to  be a plethora of them. Now is the  chance, it is considered, for anyone  in whose* bonnet lhc political bee  has ever buzzed lo get into lhe race.  While it will be impossible for  any body of'aldermen lo do'much  more than fill the seals this year, so  far as the expenditure of public  fxnids is concerned, for lhere is no  way of gelling more money lo operate with than to simply pay the current wage and supply account, siilT  there is much lhal any council may  do in lhc way of directing thc individual efforts of our citizens in ihe  matter of local improvement to die  streets,* the homey grounds, sidewalks, elc. Tis said "all this could  bc dbneJjy individual effort, without .the aid of any council, "and.  since the cily!s banker is virtually  master -of **-thep-situation^ the'~Cily.  Clcrk and the.bank, withlhe-aid'of  the faithful"pol,iceman;could handle  the situation,qiiile as"successfully as  with" thc -Mayor,and "Aldermen added. But lhe law. provides lhat the  ollices shall bc filled, hence an election musUbc-held. ,-���������������������������������������������������������������������������������._*.-;>.-',..��������������������������� .V-  fn  addition-'to    thc.   election ** of-  Mayor   and   Aldcrmeii   and" three  school trustees, Ihe electors will he-  called upon to decide the question  of a monthly "grant of $40 to the  Collage Hospital.   This'proposition  was submitted  to the retiring City  Council by Ihe hospital board.in response lo a  request  from a public  meeting of the citizens.   Thc Aldermen did not feci disposed to make  the granl requested and decided to  pul Ihe mailer up to the ratepayers,  themselves.    If the question carries  at the polls, the monthly granl asked  for will bc made; if thc decision of  the ratepayers is against the-propo-  sition, no grant will be made and  the hospital will have to get along as  best  il can, as il has in thc past,  with the aid of monthly subscriptions from a number of citizens, or  close its doors.  TIIEJUERRY HA-HA  Saturday was. New Year's" Day���������������������������a  legal holiday. To a'ccommodale a  patron from' Ihe outside district, a  merchant was at his place of business and served him. Which all will  agree, was as it should hc. Contrast this wilh whal would happen  if the outside patron should require  wailing on Thursday afternoon.  Uiitloi- Uio~absurd l;UsV*assedlby-lhc  City Council,-if this patron, or any  other, were served al'lcr 12 o'clock  the merchant would be prosecuted  and a line imposed, and the dislrict  patron would'be made a parly lo  lhe "crime." Truly,-lhe people responsible -for gelling this bylaw through, .musl have a very peculiar idea of how to attract business lo Enderby. The idea of making it a crime lo do business in Enderby Thursday afternoons must  have'originated in a house of 'bugs.'  I! docs not do credit lo the sanity  cither of the cily or our merchanls,  and as for the people of thc district,  they are giving us the merry ha-ha.  And throwing Iheir business elsewhere.    ,       __      ALBERTA PROSPEROUS.  Mr. W. J. Woods, general merchant, returned from Rctlaw, .Alta.,  on Monday after an absence of several weeks. At Rellaw Mr. Woods,  established a large general store,  and sends Mr. Wm. Duncan thither  earlv next week to lake charge. Mr..  Woods stales lhal the town of Rellaw and vicinity is choked with  wheal, it being estimated that there  are upwards of three million bushels there awaiting shipment. Just  now, owing to the scarcity or cars,  lhere i.s a lull in shipments, which  il i.s not expected will bc broken  until carly'-in April.  In the vicinity ol Rellaw Mr.  Woods has a wheal farm. This  season's yield netted 40 bushels to  LATE   WAR SUMMARY -  Lloyd's has trebled the insurance  rate on all cargoes passing through''  the   Suez   Canal.    This  announcement made oii Dec. 30lh* created' a  most profound impression in Lou-"  don.   Although the War Office will    .  rhave nothing to say on the subject,  il   means,  beyond  doubt,  that  ihe  gravest apprehensions arc fell, and  lhat thc presence of Turco-German   ,  forces near the canal must bc a" certainty.    Thc increase in insurance,. t,  rates has also, in the minds;of the/'  keenest  observers,  determined- the '  destination   of   the   40,000   Indian*'"  soldiers withdrawn from Ihe front   v  in France last week and transported '  ���������������������������  lo another field of operations.-      : -. \  '   In lac Bcssarabian district strong ,  Russian forces have been operating,..'  agninsl lhe enemy for lhe pasl .week .**-"  with  apparently   varying   success.

The fresh submarine campaign in  the Mediterranean, while admitted  Jo he a temporary success, is being  mastered, Germany already having  ksl many submarines there.  SPECIAL REGIMENTS  The Militia Department al Ottawa  lias decided lo authorize the raising  of a number of special regiments.  These will include one or more Indian battalions, a Metis battalion, a  colored battalion and a naturalized  Japanese-Canadian battalion.  Among the honors conferred by  the King at thc New Year is that of  baron upon Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, who, it is reported, will become a member of the British House  of Lords. THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY.  Thursday, JANUARY 6, 1916  wc have been able to weather the storm as well as  we have.  Sir Richard leaves in a few days to take up his  new duties as Agent General in London. In his  new sphere of effort Sir Richard will find a larger  licld of labor, to which he is peculiarly fitted.. He  will bc placed in contact with men who'must be  interested in British Columbia, and no man is  better posted, on the resources and possibilities of  the Province than hc. We may expect big things  from Sir Hichard in llie capacity of Agent General  und, if we are to judge from lhe past, wc may feel  confident lhat he will not disappoint us.        <  At a farewell banquet tendered Sir Hichard by  the people of Victoria a few evenings ago, he expressed anew Ihe solemn conviction lhat has been  liis from childhood. Hc carries this conviction  with him across the water, and, as he labors for  the Province among men of wealth and attainment, it will ever be thc means of spurring him  on in his labors. "The future is full of hope," hc  said, "and the West is possessed of incalculable  wealth. Time, bringing wilh il development, "will  prove British Columbia -the. richest Province in  lhe Dominion."  THE ENDERBY PRESS  AND WALKER'S WEEKLY '  Published  every  Thursday at'   Enderby,   B.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 6, 1916  SECOND PATRIOTIC FUND APPEAL  Thc following appeal of the Duke of Connaught  on behalf of thc Canadian Patriotic Fund is the.  second hc has made. The Canadian people were  most liberal in their response to the "first appeal,  and. if the work of lhe Fund is to go on in lhc  future, thc response to lhc second appeal must be  more liberal lhan was that lo lhe 'appeal made  at the beginning of the work of thc Flind:  "Somewhat over a year ago, as President of tiie  Canadian Palriolic Fund, I made an appeal to the people of the Dominion for funds to assist thc families of  lhc gallant men who arc going to thc fronl. Though  anticipating a generous response. I was hardly prepared for the magnificent manner in which the call  was met. Monies have poured inlo the treasury of the  Fund ii mil the total contributions have reached and  exceeded six million dollars.  "Large, however, as this sum appears, il has nol  greatly exceeded current demands and, if peace were  declared in the immediate future, the entire surplus  on hand would be required before all the men of the  Expeditionary  Force  could  again   return  home.

"Wilh   furlher   recruiting   lhc   demands   upon   thc  Elbert Hubbard came as near as- thc most of us  will come in having his wish granted when he was  torpedoed into eternity in the sinking of thc  Lusilania. "1 want no mark left to denote that I  lived,'  work.  he once wrote, "save as it appears in my  CONSCRIPTION-WITH THE NEW YEAR  "Frccdoni suspended only lo save freedom."  Under this slogan, Great Britain enters upon a  new form of government this year. For the first  time in history Britain must resort to compulsory  service in order to bring men enough to the colore  lo permit her to continue to do her part in the  great world struggle for supremacy between the  Teuton and Anglo-Saxon. It. has required many  monlbs for England to reach lhc point where she  could accept the inevitable with any degree of  calm. For months the light against compulsory  service has been keen, ancl bul for lhc strong men  in favor ol' conscription, and"lhe only partial success of Lord Derby's scheme, compulsory service  would, even up to wilhin a week ago, have been  refused. But il had to conic. The Government  promised it .would bc enforced if Lord Derby's  plans failed to gel lhc number of men required,  and Hon. Lloyd George threatened to resign if thc  pledge of the Government was nol kept. Now  that the decision has been reached and lhc step  finally taken, thc people of England seem to feel  heller and il is probable thai the action of the  Government will be approved^ even by thc labor  unions, although only a Jew days ago strong  resolutions were passed by some of the unions  condemning conscription and calling a national  convention of labor representatives lo prepare to  oppose compulsion.  Unquestionably lhis decision of thc Government  has been delayed months for no other reason than  lhat of petty hatred-of what is known as thc  Harmsworlh dailies, which have all along urged  conscription as thc only solution of the growing  problem confronting the nalion. And because the  Harmsworlh papers favored conscription, the  favored class having lhc ear of thc Government  opposed Conscription, without reason and without  hearing. 11 was even staled publicly through lhc  press lhat Hon. Lloyd George was simply a tool in  thc hands of thc Harmsworlh press to carry out  the dictates of that particular political element.  lhc^I.n_,vie.w^olLthis^aiilagoiiisn),_absolutc.!y_,iJoi:eign^.t_o_  lhc real questions at issue, it is nol to be wondered  at that conscription was held oil' so long.    Now  Fund will, wilh each succeeding monlh, continue to j that compulsory service has come and is here lo  grow, so that il is estimated lhal, should the war con-! stay, the feeling of uncertainty will quickly dis-  linuc during 11) lis, a sum amounting to some $8,000,000' appear, and England will accept thc new ordcrof  and   probably  more  will   be  required.    This  would,  things as calmly as the visit of a Zeppelin is taken  however, only mean ���������������������������*?!  per head of the population I  Ihe people of Canada, and il i.s little indeed to ask  those  who  remain  al   home  in  comparison  wilh  t  or  of  Ik"  sacrilice in life and limb of those who arc lighting in  defence of the nalion.  "In spilo of all Ihe various calls thai have been made  for funds lo aid our soldiers and sailors and lhc magnificent response that has been made in each and every  case, I still feel assured lhal lhc warm hearts of all  Canadians will respond lo lhis further appeal lo enable  lhe Patriotic Fund lo continue ils splendid work during liJIG and take care of Ihe families of those who arc  lighting for Iheir Sovereign, the Empire, and lhe  Dominion, on lhc ballle-lields of Europe and on the  High  Seas.  "(Signed) AHTIIUH.  "President, Canadian Patriotic Fund.  "Government House, Ottawa, 1st January, l!)l(j."  The one strong man who seems to loom large  in the conduct of the war as between thc Government and lhe people, i.s lion. Lloyd George. Upon  his shoulders must rest thc credit of forcing lhe  Government's hand. Upon him will largely rest  the responsibility of checking any opposition that  might show itself to lhe Government measure  when il is finally made effective. And there is  promise of opposition, not only from the labor  unions bul from the Irish party as well.

It is the 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 docs not appear to them that they  caii afford to have their butter wraps printed.  They do not like the idea of haying 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.

WHAT THE ALLIES HOPE FOR  If we can gather any idea of  what the future has in store for us  in respect to the great world war,  from what now appears to come  from reliable source, there is every  probability of our seeing a rapid  change for the better come over thc  Near East complications.  The Pall Mall Gazette's Russian  correspondent writes: "The Russian joint occupations with Roumania are now on the point of beginning. Roumania will fight with  us, although not for us. Her siding  with the Entente is not thc result  of French or English sympathies,  but an endeavor to realize the Roumanian dream of sovereignty over  Bukowina and Transylvania. As  preparation for Roumania's entry  Chicago Tribune has a way  of putting things which makes one  lose sight of the temporary reverse  and look beyond to the ultimate and  see there bright, rays of hope. In  connection with the British-retirement from the Gallipoli.adventure,  it says: "Conceived in. doubt, it  was executed in hope. Thc.Germahs  either would not have essayed the  adventure or they would have been  prepared against the last minute.  They, wbiild cither have, remained  away from the scene of.war or they  would have been lhere fuslest with  the;mostest men. Tne British way  of taking sporting chances docs not  appeal to the German mind. The  German, wants to know where he is  going even if he docs not care to  know why lie is going there.. The  Pritqir is magnificent in believing  in his destiny."  "The Suvia bay region is pathetically wet and fat with the best blood  and body of the British empire. The  Australians were * used there, the  youngest life of the oldest living  empire. They were geographically  as distant from the issues as we,in  the-United States'are. They might  have been as emotionally distant as  we are. Bul the wonderful cement  AvhLch^binds_the_prcsent_da>LBnli_sh  empire together held these boys  from the Far East and the Near East  has received their vain sacrifice.  "Yet one wonders whether or not  it has been vain. The British empire seemingly has been built in the  crudest fashion upon the blunders  of its statesmen and thc stubbornness of its people. That stanch,  easily outmaneuveretl, never" defeated entity called Great Britain  has done "this Gallipoli thing before.

"THE TRUTH WE WANT"  .Lord Milncr, in an interview in  the London Times, speaking wilh  regard lo lhe censorship, said in  part: "Thc failure to present all  the facts has raised false hopes and  given the public wrong impressions.  I am prepared lo reaflirm that wc  have been deluded. It is Ihe truth  we want and lhc truth that thc Government should not be afraid to tell  us. Some people have chosen to  call mc pessimistic because I am  anxious to have the whole unvarnished truth, so far as military and  naval necessities admit, *  bul I am only a pessimist about lhc  bad things wc have lo face and  overcome. I am an optimist and  always ha ve. been aboul our resources and the ultimate issue. More  energy, more alacrity, more determination arc whal I ask, not pessimism or optimism, but a courageous and balanced recognition bolh  of thc weak points and the strong  ones."
