Christmas week in Enderby, returned to her school in the Similkameen Tuesday.  ���������������������������-The popularity of Ihe King Ed-  \vard Xmas dinners was fully den-  onstra'led last Saturday evening  when every seat at the tables was  occupied twice round.  Manv Enderbyites enjoyed the  drive to Grindrod last evening to  participate in thc church concert  given there in the school building,  and all report thc concert-to have  been a great success.  The name of Mr. George Bell has  been mentioned by lhc Librals of  Victoria as a candidate lo contest in  the bvc-eleclions against the newly-,  appointed Minister of Finance and  Agriculture, A.C Flunicrfelt.  Mr. A. J. Lazenby, for several  years a resident of Enderby, died  in Vancouver on Christmas Day,  after an illness of several weeks,  from pleuro '-pneumonia. When  living here Mr. Lazcnby was engaged as miller for the Columbia  Flouring Mills. ,  A report was current last evening  to the effect that Kaiser William  was dead. ' Telegraphic reports  from Europe for the past week or  more have told of the illness of the  Kaiser, and this fact lent colot- to  the report if his death. So far as  can be learned from reliable  sources, however, there is no truth  is the report.  The ladies of the W. A..of St.  George's Church gathered at the  rector's home last Thursday afternoon for the purpose of bidding a  faithful worker, Mrs. Hallett, farewell on the eve of her departure  for Boundary Falls where she  joined Mr. Hallett. She was presented with a hand-illumined address and a beautiful hammered-  eopper tray as a tokeirof their esteem and good wishes,  the, children of- the, Presbyterian  Stinday < schooP will be treated''to a  straw ride, followed- by refreshments and games in the basement  of the church.  A meeting" is to be called by the  people residing along the river bc-  tween'Enderby and Mara, at Grindrod to take action against what it  is claimed is a peril to the health of  the entire district. The date of the  me'eting has not been set, but we are  informed thai it will be early in  January. The complaint is that the  drainage system of Enderby is putting into thc river sewage which is  making the river water unfit to be  used for domestic purposes.  Mr. J.- E. Crane proposes to give  five per cent of the proceeds of the  rafllejie is holding for the Edison  cl i ~sc~p hoh ogrft p lf~a nil-1 he~c a bi n e I  gramophone, to the Canadian Patriotic Fund. The two instrument's  are valued .at $150. They arc the  best manufactured of the types  named, and the demand for ticket^  has been large. Mr. Crane hopes to  have all sold in a short time, and  he urges anyone desiring to get a  ticket lo not delay until too late.  When the City Council of Vancouver was asked to pass a law prohibiting the public from making any  purchases in Vancouver on a certain afternoon of lhe week, thc merchants who were backing the  scheme were informed by thc City  Council that they (tbe Council) did  not consider it their business to regulate thc business hours for the  merchants. The merchants of Vancouver should have made the request of Ihe Cily Council of Enderby, as it is the only municipal body  iii the Province that, knows how to  do such a thing.   ENDERBY TOBACCO FUND  A meeting will be held at thc  home of Mrs. E. Gray Monday afternoon, Jan.,3rd, al 2:30, for thc purpose of electing ollicers for the Enderby Tobacco Fund for 191(5. Il is  the general feeling that this Fund i.s  doing a good work and thai lhc  good work should go on. but it is  felt that individual packages sent  direct from Enderby to the boys in  the trenches.AVOiild be far more acceptable, and at thc same time  would not mean thc draining of lhc  town of its ready cash, as thc purchases could be made at home.

The  trenches at present are not nice, as  it rains twenty hour's out of twenty-  four. Thc conditions in this respect arc nol improving. Quite a  few'of the boys have gone sick with  bad throats and colds���������������������������the first  time since coming out that we have  had any sickness to speak of. But  wc get a little fun out of it all, and  on the whole we might .be worse  off. I have seen most all lhe Enderby boys and a lot from Vernon and  Kelowna.  "Things arc very quiet on this  front at present and I guess will remain so for the winter,"as Irenches  have for thc mosl pari all fallen in  and neither side feels very hostile.  II keeps them busy warming their  feet. We have just had a hoof inspection. Mosl of the feel arc  standing it pretty good, but there  have been a few cases of trench  feet in the regiment so they inspect  our feel and boots every once in a  while.

"Nothing doing" is the summing up  of the ollicial reports. It is'reported  that the enemy has made several  attacks on the Western front at  'various points, the object of which,  according to military critics; is to  ���������������������������find a weak spot in the Allies' line  preparatory for a general offensive.  At Salonica lhc Allies are reported , lo have massed 400,000  troops.' Here Ihcy are said to have  prepared _formidablc_l_ies _of jle-^  fense, where they expect lo hold  against- the Gernian-Austrian-Rul-  garian forces. Another report says  a strong Anglo-French-Italian Heel  is stationed al Salonica lo assist thc  Allied field forces. Slill another report says the enemy is entrenching  near thc Greek border ostensibly  with tbe intention of playing a  wailing game and with no intention  of attempting to drive thc Allied  forces out of Salonica.    On Ihe Eastern front it is reported  I lie Russians have defeated the enemy on the Riga fronl. Several defeats of this nature have been reported in recent weeks, on Ibis  front, and il is dillicull to understand if all these defeat^ mean lhal  lhe Germans have tried new oll'en  sives and failed.  Jusl now lhc chief interest seems  lo centre more upon the diplomatic  and political questions than upon  military movements'. In thc House  of Commons the greal question to  be settled i.s that of conscription.  Lloyd George is reported to have  threatened to resign if Premier  Asquith fails to keep his word wilh  the married men who enlisted under Lord Derby's recruiting plan.  To do this means conscription-for  thc "slackers," and the leaders of  11  c  lie   Irish   party   threaten   to. (igbl  onscription to the bitter end.   The  London papers declare that the situation i.s serious, and no way out  of it appears clear at this time. ���������������������������  Santa Claus babies came to the homes  of Mr. and Mrs. J.

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY.  Thursday, December 30,1915  not been to the interest of the community. We  must each do our part to bring about a change.  If we want 1916 to be a'prosperous year, we must  awake to the fact that it is tip to us to make it  so. Not by fictitious effort, but by earnestness  and loyalty to the buying public and the selling  enterprises of the town and district. Is it loyalty  to the district, for the' businessmen of our community to pull down their signs in thc local paper  and allow outside businessmen lo get in and take  away: thc home town trade?  A writer oi" verse hils oil our feelings nicely as  wc lie between llie soft warm blankets these cold  and frosty mornings when lie says: "When 1  awaken in the morn, I'm sad, I must confess,  to think that ere I can go oul, 1 must gel up and  dress."

At the'same, lime wc realize  that for this community fo come into that full  'measure of prosperity which shouldbc ours there  must bc a change in some measure that will bring  about more harmony and a fuller co-operation.  A lown is no lown without a newspaper���������������������������a live  newspaper such as The Press consistently tries to  be���������������������������lhat is constantly watching over thc interests  of lhc municipality���������������������������a watch-dog that is ever on  lhc alcrl to belter conditions and to warn its  readers in lhc lime of  baps more fully than some others thc danger of  the mail order evil, and we have watched with  dec]) concern thc steady decline of local business.  Much of this decline musl bc lhc result of lhc war  policy of our local merchants, who, with thc coming of the war, sixteen months ago, ceased all  form of advertising in lhc home paper, and thus  offered no inducement lo the buying public of the  district to patronize lhc home locality. Merchants  of neighboring towns have found it profitable to  advertise in Thc Press, and business that should,  and no doubt would, have remained in Enderby  was drawn away. A year or more ago The Press  published a scries of articles on "Sinning Against  Your Home.Town.". The object of.those.articles  The Sou lir African war saw many brilliant military reputations shattered. And the South African war was make-believe warfare compared  with thc great world war of loday. Six months  ago, lhc mere thought of Earl Kitchener being  ousted from the war ollice, Sir John French being  removed from command of the British forces in  France, or Sir Jan Hamilton being called home  from thc Dardanelles, would have caused consternation. Today all these things have taken  place, and, so far as one can sec, there is nol a  ripple on thc surface of thc deep British spirit���������������������������  nol a tiltlc of loosening do wc sec in lhc bull-dog  hold upon thc neck of the enemy. - We have had  a year of reverses. "Brilliant retreats" and  "masterful evacuations" have been thc order of  thc news from our war news bureau; wc have  witnessed lightning-like changes on the East and  Near East fronts; wc have seen as rapid changes*  in the management of the Avar; ancl lhc Government itself has been shaken from stem to stern.  Oul of it all there has come no fear, bul, on the  contrary, a deeper determination lo bold on in the  hope lhat these changes will bring more favorable  results. Judged by military and strategical considerations thc year 1915 has been disastrous for  the Allies, but faith in the higher strategy impels  the conviction in every British heart that out of it  all must conic final victory. It is this spirit that  has in the past led thc British on to victory. It is  impossible to believe otherwise in this war,  though no sane man will blind his eyes to what is.  transpiring and declare that all is well. Britain  is making some remarkable changes in the War  Ollice, changes which point, lo a* new policy for  lhc year 1916. With what success these changes  will bc carried out remains to be seen. Wc can  only hope that wc shall hear less of brilliant retreats and masterful evacuations ; andmore of  successful offensive and decisive victories: Retreats and evacuations, however brilliant, do not  spell victory. - '.  "Love is heaven, hate is hell." savs the Van-  Wc realize per- couvcr Province short editorial man." But it will  take more than these six little words lo convince  one,' after reading in  the same paper pages of  dope on how wc do and should hate our enemies,  WHAT THE BRITISH FLEET IS DOING  was to show how the home town was injured by  ils people buying away from home. We had no  axe Lo grind in publishing those articles. Wc  simply pointed lo an evil. Wc have no axe lo  grind loday in pointing lo another evil and a  greater one that our merchants are indulging in.  It is the paper's business lo show up anything  lhal i.s nol good for our town, and in order to do  lhis we musl gel lo the bed rock of thc evil. We  are not saying thai il rests entirely with our merchanls. but lhe general belief is lhal il does, and  lhe merchants are doing nothing lo disabuse the  public mind. In an article in The Press last week  we pointed lo some fads���������������������������hateful ones, but facts,  nevertheless, which are generally admitted.  As every reader knows, every publication, especially a paper such as this one i.s, depends to a  greal extent on its advertising to pay ils necessary  running hills.-   Without advertising a newspaper  musl curtail its pages, reduce its size.   In pointing  lo  the policy of no advertising adopted by the  majority of our merchants, we do so not because  we, musl have lhe business, bul we do so because  we clearly see where lhe policy is leading, and  whal the outcome will be.    We want to see our  local merchants succeed.   The more they succeed  lhe more business houses will open up here and  consequently attract more people to come and  sellle down wilh us.   And lhc more people and  businessmen lhal. come here, the more business  they will attract lo the lown, the more the news  and the larger the paper.   And the more news and  the larger the paper, the more business and the  more people il will attract to Knllcrby.  You see how il works���������������������������wheels within wheels���������������������������  In thc Review of Reviews for December, A. C.  La ut writes -an excellent article on "What-Sea  Power Means to England in this War." In this  article the writer d als with every phase of the  gigantic problems which the British admiralty  has had to face, and shows how splendidly the  Silent Fleet has carried out the tremendous task  set for it. "Just what thc fleet means to England  _i s_bes La pp recia tcd=w.h cn-yo u-rcm cm bGivtha t4he-r  German naval base is less lhan 375 miles from  London," says he, "or 500 miles from lhe Firth of  Forth, which is the base for thc English North  Sea Fled. \ ' * " The fleets of thc two  greatest naval powers are only sixteen hours  apart. * * * Thc Fleet has guarded the transport of 2,f)00,000 men. It has brought home more  than half a million invalids. It has protected the  carrying of 3,000.000 Ions of food and supplies for  Greal Britain. It has made safe the conveying of  800,000 horses.

'  I  Small Attendance at Public Meeting  of Enderby Canadian Patriotic Fund  There' is  now being distributed  to Enderby dependents of soldiers  at-the.front monthly sums from the  Canadian Patriotic Fund amounting  in the* aggregate to between $1,600  and $1,700 per year, while Enderby's contribution to the Fund has  amounted to only $50.      In 1916,  however,  Enderby  is expected  to  ' raise the sum, of $800 for the Fund,  and'to'ward this end,the,local working body was reorganized at a meet-  (ing held in the City Hall last Thurs-  v'/day evening.   It is not the intention  or the expectation of the local organization to get this amount subscribed and send it in one lump  sum to the. parent organization, but  the   purpose   is > to - get   as   many  monthly   subscribers   as   pos.ible  and.in this way forward to headquarters the amount expected from  [tbis locality during",the .year how  ~,^.  opening.

The  cows also assisted in keeping the  logged-off land free from undergrowth, and also in enriching the  land already under partial cultivation. Gradually the stumps were  blown out,, and the fields more fully  cultivated. All the while the cows  were adding lo the herd, and each  succeeding year found the settler  better able to meet his payments'  and with additions to his herd.  Under   these    conditions  whole  districts were developed, the cow  being thc leading factor in the progress, and back of the cow, the local  banks who took it upon themselves  to provide the cows for the district.  We note that thc new Manitoba  government has adopted a.similar  scheme in its effort to stimulate the  back-to-the-land   movement.      The  Hon. Mr. Winkler, minister of agriculture, proposes lo speiid $750,000  to buy milch cows for.needy families.   He proposes to form a commission   to   distribute  to' families  now on farms and families unable  to continue lhe battle for existence*"  in   the   cities,   six   cows  to  every  farmer in need.    Single men, and  those   not   needing   aid,   will   be  barred.    The individual-allotments  of cows will cost about $300.   It is  believed   these   cows   will   enable  many struggling farmers, especially  in   the  undeveloped  northern  districts, to continue their battle until  better times; and that this government    assistance    \yill    encourage  them and form a basis- on which  they may climb into more contented  circumstances, thus preventing possibly   hundreds   from   abandoning  their homesteads and returning to  the cities. ���������������������������    ',    ..

The  money applied to this purpose was  in one instance returned to us later  on by the recipient. Needless to say  the funds used in tliis way were  funds specially donated for home  relief purposes; all money ordinarily collected having been necessarily  devoted to the specific work for  which the Canadian. Patriotic Fund  was established, namely, the relief  of dependents of soldiers who have  gone to the front. One of our soldiers has been killed in action; thc  others, we are pleased to say, are,  as far as we know at the present  time, still uninjured and. in good  health.  During the past year we have not  considered the time opportune for  a general canvass of the public for  funds, as financial conditions,  locally, have been none too good.  We have considered that it was  sufficient to make it known through  the press that a branch of the Fund  existed here and was ready to accept donations. Mr. F.

PRACTICAL AID TO SETTLERS  In some of the logged-off land  districts of the western states, the  localbankers of those districts saw  a chance for them to be of practical  assistance to the settlers and a way  to induce them to locate upon thc  logged-off land and develop it. Thc  way was easy, but it meant some  risk. However, the bankers took  the risk, and in a short time they  had thousands of acres of this, logged-off land in settlers' hands, and  the settlers themselves were on the  road to prosperity. The first thing  thedocal bankers did, after settling  the/mattcr of title, was to bring into the district carloads of breeding  cattle.* These were sold to the sellers on easy terms by the banks.  The experiment was successful. The  cows paid for themselves, and in  addition assisted the settlers in  clearing the land and bringing the  acres under.cultivation. The land  in most instances was cleared of  yare, visiiea nnueroy reccmiy, lhe smM slu(r and the roots grub-  the opinion, however, that the ,*S      ���������������������������      _.,-.,      . ��������������������������� 7 n  has come when a systematic bed out, wh.de the stumps of the  heavier timber were allowed to remain in the ground.

They therefore  appeal   to   the   public  to  keep  the  Canadian Patriotic Fund in mind,  and do what they can to help.

It would not bc surprising if the  New Religion would make Sunday  recreation compulsory.  The war expenditure of the Dominion, from the outbreak of the  war until December 31, 1916, will  probably   amount   to   $400,000,000.  The purchases of Great Britain and  her allies of supplies and munitions  will probably by that date have exceeded $600,000,000.   Total of Canada's  war  expenditure   and   purchases by.the Allies oyer one thousand million dollars.   Up to the outbreak of war Canada had been ancl  is  still   a  borrowing  country,  depending upon outside money markets for the sale of'her Dominion,  provincial and municipal securities.  As   Canada   has   no   inlernalional  money   centre  like   New  York   or  London,   where   accumulations   of  capital are availabble for short-date  treasury loans or  for the sale ojT  Government securities, it is obvious  that Canada-will not be able to provide funds for the whole but only  for a part of her own war expenditure and by way of advances for the  expenditure in Canada by the Allies  for supplies and munitions.    Only  by production and saving is it possible to increase the supply of Canadian   capital   available   for   these  purposes.    The Dominion Government has urged and is still' urging  increased   production   and   thrift.  The    Canadian    people    have    responded  in this respect  as freely  and as fully as they have to the call  for  men;    Thc  production  of the  greatest wheat crop in history is an  evidence of it, and 75,000,000 bushels of that wheat have been taken  already for the Allies.

LOW COST OF FLOTATION  A notable feature of the recent  war loan made by the Dominion  Government has been the unusually  low cost of its flotation. It was not  underwritten, and the advertisements of the issue were placed directly by the Government. Thc cost  of flotation of a Dominion loan,.including underwriting, runs from 2  to 2% per cent upon the amount of  issue. The expense of flotation of  the recent War- Loan if the usual  methods had been adopted would  have been over a million dollars for  the $50,000,000 issue and over two  millions for the $100,000,000. ' The  total expenses connected with the  flotation will be less than one half  of one per cent.  LOST���������������������������Logging chain, on the road  near Enderby.   G. Al. Andrews.

Chase Casgrain,  Postmaster General of Canada, has  been successful, as* a result of negotiations entered into with thc Imperial postal authorities, in effecting an arrangement with the British  Government whereby parcels from  Canada for Canadian soldiers in  France and Flanders will.be carried at the same rate of postage as  applies to parcels from the United  Kingdom for the Expeditionary  Forces on the Continent, that is:  For parcels weighing up to three  pounds, 24  cents.  For parcels weighing over three  pounds and not more than seven  pounds, 32 cents.  For parcels weighing over seven  pounds and not more than eleven  pounds, 38 cents.  This means a material reduction  on the cost of parcels, and it is  hoped it will,be a source of satisfaction to thc Canadian public. This  reduction has. been brought about  by Canada foregoing all postal  charges for the conveyance of these  parcels in Canada and on thc Atlantic. The public are reminded,  however, in accordance, with the  circular issued by the Department  recently, that until further notice,  no parcel can bc sent, weighing  over seven pounds.  Our wish and our hope  for you and yours during 1916 Is that It will  be Brighter and /"lore  Prosperous than any  that have gone before.

In  his salute to the people of Cranbrook he says: "We hope to enlarge  and improve the Herald and make it  more truly representative of the city  and district.
