 /  Enderby, B. C, February 17, 1916  AND      WALKER'S      WEEKLY  Vol. 8;.No. 51; Whole No. 415  Steps Taken by City Council to  Overcome Waterworks Difficulties  At the regular* meeting of the  City Council Monday evening,  with His Worship the Mayor in  lhe chair and Aldermen Johnston, Nichol, Pell and Faulkner  around the table, the important  decision of the meeting was to  make a start in thawing out the  water mains where they are ap-  . parcnlly frozen leading-to. sec-  lions of the lown where the few  service pipes- have not drawn  from thc mains suflicient water  lo keep them open. The first  main to be opened is that leading to the-residences east of the  railway, * from Regent , street  north, including thc Poison addition. Outlying portions'of two  other wooden 'mains were reported, to be out of commission,  and these will be operated upon  .in theirturn; An electric-thaw:  ing"machine was:ordered1 by let-  ttcrgram., last Thursday, to be  sent by express; and it is4expecr  ���������������������������ted-.that this;willbe here shortly,  'after whichVthc matter of clearing -th"c~*melal scrvice/pipesywill  be taken iip immediately. > ,  To reach this decision the City  Council had. to dispel a brain-,  storm before it "could get into an  atmosphere .of mental clarity.  Mayor Dill reported to the Council lhal, in the absence of Aldcr-  ..maii Faulkner,/chairman of the  .waterworks committee, he had  taken upon-himself lhc responsibility of declining to put men  on thawing the water mains reported frozen.iip. He thought if  thc city did this it would have to  tackle all thc service pipes out of  commission as well, and.he,did  not think the city could afford to  do this. In taking this stand he  had incurred criticism and coni-  ^plainlsrb.ulrgrandiloqucntlyrhc  considered the source of thc  criticism and complaints and  was not disposed to pay any attention to'it. Hc had ordered an  electric thawing machine at a  cost of $79 and express charges,  which would probably bc $10,  and when this machine came lo  hand he believed thc city, should  thaw out thc service pipes. As  to lhe wooden mains reported  frozen hc did not see how they  could go to thc expense it would  involve.  In a prolonged discussion, the;  ovcrhndowing feature of which j  was a war cloud, the scribe of  Enderby's family weekly had a  vision, and, arising with whal  little dignity he could muster  after listening to thc pcnlup eloquence of the chief executive,  he asked permission to address  the honorable body. Hc had not  opened his mouth until His  Worship the Mayor jumped upon him Avith both feet and  hands, laid on by word of  mouth. He wanted to know all  kinds of things all at once, and  told the scribe that he could  speak before that honored body  only on conditions laid down by  himself, otherwise he, the  mayor, would not listen to him.  Thc scribe felt he was in a terrible predicament. There did  not seem to be any doubt about  it that the mayor felt drc'ful  sore about something. And jusl  about this time Aid. Faulkner  jumped in.   Hc wanted to know  who was responsible for what  appeared in Thc Press, and intimated that hc would like to go  courting with the scribe or black  lhc   scribe's - eyes.     It was all  very funny.  -But just.here the  plot deepens.   Thc scribe.got,a  chance to get a wedge in finally.  He' said hc was not there to answer for Thc Press.   The Press  could answer for itself.    Any  criticism The Press had made or  might make was open to refutations through the proper channel���������������������������thc columns of the paper.  He said he was riot there cither  to bluff or to be bluffed. To him  the mere fact that-water users  whose- services'.went   out. a  month, ago were still without  water, and that the* only, street  mains which, had been thawed  but-had been thawed out by.private individuals a. their-own ex-,  pense was sufficient evidence to  justify, the criticism- appearing  in' The-Press. /What.the scribe  wished to" say; however, -hcVdc*  sired; to/say as a-ratepayer.-   As  a ratepayer he questioned the  wisdom of the.policyy"of delays  Even .if the city had the thtnving  machine here now, it could'hot  help out .on thc wooden mains.  These, where they-.arc blocked,  would have to be cleared of ice  before the thawing of thc service  pipes could get water into the  houscsi.and lhc longer these are  allowed to   remain   frozen  in  spots  thc  farther  the ;icc will  spread in thc pipes and the bigger would grow thc job and expense when thc- task is finally  undertaken.    If thc city could  not afford to get water through  its mains how could lhc individ-  uaLall'orxHo-doit?   When thc storm had blown  over the atmosphere clarified,  and in a short time a resolution  was moved by Aid. Faulkner  and Aid. Jqnhston tlis.it work bc  started on the watcr'n'iain supplying all the residences cast of  Railroad avenue and norlh of  Regent street.  Another mailer coining before lhe Council which caused  considerable discussion was* the  appointment of a caretaker for  the cemetery. Thc 1915 Council  put a clause in its cemetery-regulations by-law reducing the  amount lo be charged for digging a grave from $5 to $3. The  city docs nol pay this money,  but it is stipulated thai the sum  of $3 shall bc paid to the caretaker for digging lhc grave by  the buyer of lhe plot. The law-  says, also, lhat this munificent  sum of $3 per grave, paid by thc  person ordering thc grave, shall  be considered as compensation  by the caretaker for his services  to the city in looking after thc  cemetery, thc fences and the  weeds. John McPhcrson was  appointed caretaker under this  by-law, but Mr. McPhcrson will  not accept the position at $3.  The price has always been $5,  without any frills, and now,  with the additional duties lhat  go with the position under the  newly operative bylaw, it is  not considered a reasonable  compensation, and lhe question  is raised also as to thc wisdom  of the city attempting to set thc  i'eq thc undertaker shall charge  when thc individual and not the  city has to pay-it. Mr. McPherson, who appeared before the  Council,,said that so long as hc  had been, undertaker here, the  maximum fee had been "$5, and  lhe minimum'$3. Tic suggested,  as a means of curbing the extravagance somewhat, if thc  City Council felt that it had to  set thc fee, that the** clause bc  made to read "not to exceed $5."  Thc aldermen seemed to bc  equally divided as to whether  fee should bc $5 or $3, bul no decision could be arrived at, and  the .question, was.laid over for  future consideration.  Bylaw No. 92 repealing the  Thursday afternoon half-holiday bylaw passed^ its first and  second readings.   v         : -Bylaw No. 91, a".statutory bylaw covering-temporary loans  from the"bank, passed its. first,  reading.' 7Y ^''"7, ?

Johnston to  arrange for such meeting.  A' lengthy address signed by  the mayor was read by the city  clerk dealing with municipal  matters which should receive  the attention of the Council. Thc  mayor first congratulated thc  new council^ on llie improved  condi tioiis under wluclr^lllc  members meel today as compared with those which confronted the council of 1915 at  the commencement of the past  term. In the mailer of finances  it was staled in the address lhat  in order to realize on the assets  of the city to find the amount  necessary lo meet sinking fund  obligations shown to bc pasl due  in the last financial slalemenl of  the auditor, il will he necessary  to ask the citizens lo pay up  their arrears of laxes.

This" year there has been a general reduction in lhe assessment  of land, which reduction, may  necessitate a slight increase in  the tax rale.  It was suggested in the address that the chairmen of lhc  various standing committees be  prompt in placing before coun-  ciTIheir estimates of financial  needs for lhc year, and that all  expenditures lie confined to actual needs of maintenance without attempting any new work.  In regard to lhc waterworks  and fire protection department,  the mayor pointed out lhat steps  had been taken lo keep lhe fire  hydrants open, and lhal mosl of  walcr-pipc freezing reported the lh.m hv0 lo 011C> and lh(H)Callty  past icw days despite lie lacl oi jof lhc costlimes was quite exilic prevailing soil wealhcr.

The mild weather ol* the past week or len days
has been lhc most welcome change of the season.
It's Okanagan weather. And with it has come the
Okanagan spirit���������a spirit of .-longing for thc
green Melds* and mellow earth'.""- Soon we-shall
take down the hoe and llie rake and get to work
in tlie gardens. Soon the men in the Melds will
start Iheir spring work preparatory for next season's crop. Whal will il be? Will lhc ranchers in
the vicinilv of Enderbv exceed lhe accomplishments of 1915? Will the crops bc larger? "Will
the harvest bc heavier? Can wc, as a farming
commimily do heller lhan we have? Can the output, from Enderby be made greater? Can more
produce for profit be. produced? We believe it
am. Wo believe Enderby's output has nol been,
in pasl seasons, one-half what the dislrict is capable of. We believe, wilh closer co-operation, the
farmers of Enderby district can raise more lhan
double what they have in past seasons. We have
the land and we have lhe men. Heretofore lhere
has been more or less uncertainly as lo available
market. Tliis uncertainty must inevitably exist,
al least until Canada has developed in population
now is. Nevertheless, there is a much heller outlook now than ever before. The establishment of
lhe evaporating plants at Armstrong and Vernon
lias made a ready market for all kinds of vege-1
tables and field roots. The prices may not be as
high as shippers have been demanding in pasl
years, but high enough lo leave a comfortable
margin for the producer. And llie best pari.'of il
js, llie evaporators can handle all the sec.ond-
I^i-Th lost ill T a\" i T: cl i cTui 171 i i o U lie p 1 n ceV I if|) f > n 11 i c
open market before. In the vicinilv of Armstrong
lhis winler many hundreds of tons of potatoes
have been frozen in the pits. In ordinary seasons
this would mean a severe loss to the district. This
year llie evaporator i.s taking all'lhe frozen potatoes offered, -and al a price which pays lhe'
grower a comfortable 'margin over the cost of
growing, digging and pilling.
Perhaps the growers of Enderby are nol so
conveniently silualed as lhe growers of Armslrong lo lake advantage of the evaporator market, bul they will find lhal, wilh lhe evaporator
hiking so much of lhe Armstrong produce oil* the
regular market, il will create a greater demand
for the belter class of field vegetables on the regular market. Considering these points, it should
lie clear lo all lhal lhc thing to do lhis year is lo
plan I heavily of potatoes, onions and other Meld
vegetables. The district which has llie quantity
of produce lo sell will be the one which finds the
readiest market.
At Monday night's meeting of Ihe Cily Council
Mayor Dill and Alderman Faulkner look The
Press lo task for ils criticism in lasl week's issue
of thc policy of wailing adopted by lhal body up
lo lluil lime in dealing with the waler troubles
afflicting a large per centage of the citizens of
Enderbv. It was ever thus. Some men, when
elected "to a public oflice and unaccustomed to
handling civic business, appear lo believe that
they should be permitted, lo run public business
as Ihcy would their own, regardless of thc convenience of the people whose servants they temporarily are. They assume the role of dictator
instead of servant. And if thc public press presumes to question lhat attitude, they al once lake
il as a personal insult and rush post haste after
lhe editor. Thc editor, accustomed lo this sort of
thing, endeavors lo explain thc position of the
press in such mailers as the servant of the public,
but as explanations only clarify where the position is already understood, lhc editor takes the
oral drubbing in good part and sits down.
What was'saitUn Thc Press lasl week would bc
repeated this week and next week and the week
following, with accentuations, if in thc public interest if were deemed necessary. But il would be
said, and was said, not lo impair the work of the
City Council, bul rather to aid in bringing forcibly lo the attention of ils members the weaknesses of'the policy Ihey were following. This is
not the privilege of the public press���������it is ils duly.
We have spent, too many*ycars iii the newspaper
business, and have run up against this sort of
thing loo often lo expect anything bul condemnation from lhc men upon whose shoulders tbe
criticism must rest. But, The Press is here to help
them in any way it can be of service. And when,
in the public interest, Thc Press is called upon
lo criticise their handling of public business in
the future, if will be there.on the spot, kindly but
(irmly speaking for thc community and the ratepayers of Enderby.
While wc do not Hatter ourselves by presuming
lhat anything The Press said last week had any
influence upon the Mayor and Chairman of the
Waterworks Committee, still it will be good news
to lhe water users who have been frozen up for
the past monlh-to learn lhat on Thursday evening
lasl a lettergram was sent to thc Hamilton electric works for a thawing machine with instructions to ship by express. And it, will be further
good news to learn that the first work on thawing
the wooden water mains was started by the city
on Tuesday morning of this week. The work of
cleaning out the pipes and getting water lo lhc
patrons of- the system will be prosecuted as rap-
idy as possible when the thawing machine arrives.
There is some consolation for the household
without water in these words of the sage: "If you'
suffer, thank God; il is sure proof you are alive."

question of doing business.

Mosl men are workingmen. Workingmen need
not argue aboul war. They need'only refuse to
he used in war. Thai Ihey lire not yet prepared to
refuse is altogether loo obvious. It is quite possible thai a carefully aimed emotional appeal
would sweep Ihe working classes even of thc
Uniled Stales into whole-hearted support of an
unjust war. Yel it is clear to all of us now,
whether, we are workingmen or not, that the
working people of Europe arc doing themselves,
collectively, ghastly harm, and that their possible
gains from war, whether economic, .political or
moral, are at the most an infinitcsnial fraction of
their certain losses in all three of Ihesc ways.
They even know this themselves, but they have
been trained and organized in such a way thai

The Dominion law against llie selling of
buller without the words "Dairy Butter" or
"Creamery Butter"���������as thc case may be���������printed
on the butter wrap, is a blessing in disguise lo lhe
average farmer. In thc first place, if his Butter
wrappers are neatly printed with his name and
the brand of the butter on the label, the storekeepers can readily sell lhe butter at 5c a pound
more lhan hc can get for butler wrapped in paper
lhat is not printed, and thc butter-maker gets the
advantage in 5c a pound more for his butler from
the merchant.
It is the duly of every butler maker to comply wilh thc law^in this matter. Some butter
makers have only ii cow or two, and make so little
butter that it docs not appear lo them lhat they
can afford to have their butter wraps printed.
They do not like the idea of having 500 or 1000
butter wraps on hand. To accommodate this
class of butler makers, The Press has printed up
a quantity of "Custom" Butter Wraps. They are
printed with the words "Fresh Dairy Butter" but
do not bear the name of the maker. However,
these wrappers fill the requirements of the law
governing-thispoint, and-can be.bought.in small.
quantities at thc rate of 50c a hundred in 100 or
50 lots. If you do not repuire butter wraps in
larger lots, take these wraps in lesser quantities.

For  the past- three weeks the old  gentleman had been confined to  his bed by an attack of grippe,  Avhich finally developed into  bronchitis, and after a vain  struggle he passed, quietly away  on Wednesday afternoon, Feb.  9th.   .       ���������������������������  Mr. Langstaff was born in  Ireland in thc year 1821, and  when 9. years'of age accompanied his father.and mother to  Canada.

In that  pretty lowii upon the shores of  Lake Huron he lived for ..over  40. ycars. His early .love of;, lhe  pioneer life was hard to.down,  however, and, when in his 80's,  lie made lhe long journey over  hajf a continent lo join his son,  J. J. Langstalf, then residing in  Trout Lake City, B. C. Here he.  spent several ycars, ultimately  journeying to Enderby.with his  daughter, Mrs. J. C. Dagg, with  "whom he .lived until his dcalh.  -' Mr Langslatnived under four  sovereigns, from William IV.  imtil lhc, reign of our present  gracious sovereign, George V.  He remembered four bloody  wars previous to the one now'  raging, thc fiercest and bloodiest  of. theni all.  Up lo a few minutes before hc  =f cl l=i n to-liis-4usU-Iong-slccp_his-  mind was clear and hc spoke rationally. He was singularly ac-  ' live for a man of his years and  his lace was a familiar one to  almost- everyone about town.  There arc many who will miss  thc old bent figure out on his  daily walk. Back in thc old  home town wherc he labored,  there arc many who will join  witli us in uttering thc wish that  his rest may be deep and peaceful.  tender susceptibilities, and one  who was ever ready to act in any  capacity where he could bc of  service in the higher development of the community.    Ten  ycars ago hc came to Mara and  purchased  thc fertile fields on  the shores of thc Spallumcheen,  which   lie    afterwards    named  Kelvin Grove.   Hc was joined by  his son; H. 0., and wife.   Some i.  few ycars ago Mrs. Kellett Jr.,  died, since which time the son  and. father have lived upon thc  farm.    For lhc first few years  Mr. Kellett spent .much lime in  an   earnest   effort   to   bring   a  broader vision to thc community where he had chosen lo make  his home, and il is not too much  to  say. that  his quiet, 'earnest  .ways left an impression on the  community thai will always live  arid bc a part of his memory.   . .  Four sons and one daughter  survive the father: Mrs. F. C.  Ford, Los Angeles, Gal.; W. J.,  Grand. Prairie,   Alta.;  , S.   A.,  Lethbridge, Alta.; P. E., Winnipeg; and H. 0., Mara;  lots of it." People in the  Southern Okanagan are fond  enough of talking about the climate of this beautiful valley.  They have some trouble at present, however, in explaining  away to themselves and their  friends just why it is.lhat for thc  pasl five weeks wc have been  gripped in the icy embrace of  the Arctic North. They realize  that after all "weather" is simply a comparative-proposition.*  For the last two or three weeks  we have stayed indoors all we  could; when we had to go out  we shivered along^ the street  with collars turned up'and caps  pulled down. Wc wondered  miserably why we had to be  allliclcd wilh all this chilliness.  Wc arc wondering if our  peach and and apricot crops are  gone. * * * South of here  in some sections thc orchard-  ists do not expect any fruit at all  this season because of the cold  weather. .The same condition  applies in sections of Ontario.  We can't sec any particular  reason for all this cold weather,  bul so long as it is warmer here  than in most places wc can refrain from complaining about  our own hard lot.���������������������������Penticton  Herald..

Of  tbe frozen-up   services,   it was ���������������������������    pointed oul that most of these from it if possible.   Get a piece  Simple Method of Thawing Pipe  Here's a simple method for  thawing a waler pipe that is frozen underground, without digging it out and submitting it to a  blow-torch or fire: Open the  pipe at a convenient point where  you can allow lhc water to drain  of Lqndon, England  Assets exceed  $120,000,000  THE UNION OF PARIS  One of the  largest .Eire  Insurance  "Companies/in the World.   ���������������������������  are confined to the small service  pipes leading from the mains;  The mains themselves were only  frozen in a Jew places where the  services were, not enough to  keep the water moving. Owing  to the extreme hardness of the  ground caused by the frost, the  mayor said it was out of the  question to employ suilicient  labor to free all these sendees  by digging down to them. The  process wonId'be slow and costly. A rush order for an electric  thawing machine to be forwarded by ".express from- Hamilton had been sent. When this  appliance arrives it will be a  comparatively* easy and inexpensive task to restore the services, except in those cases  ���������������������������where.:.the..-main- is frozen. In  these cases it may bc necessary  lo deliver water "by hauling in  barrels for a time.  II was pointed out that the  franchise under which the town  is so eilicicntly and satisfactorily lighted by the Okanagan  Saw Mills, Ltd., will expire next  year, and that il is desirable  lhat thc light committee at an  early dale look into this matter  with a view of cither installing  a municipally-owned system or  of extending for a time thc existing agreement between thc  town .and the company.  It was urged that a small  building for the convenience of  lhc public bc erected at the cemetery, and also lhat proper sanitary accommodation as required by law be installed in  connection wilh  the-Cily Hall.  Alter laying down what are  the duties of the members of thc  Council, lhe address concludes;  "il is therefore evident that,  while wc have but little money  lo spend, and must, so far as  substantial improvements arc  concerned, bc content to 'mark  time,' yet there is ample scope  for our endeavors in other ways  which arc quite as important.  Much might be done to improve  lhe town and make it more picturesque and attractive by inducing property owners to beau-  lily Iheir premises with lawns,  shrubs, climbing roses, and  olher llowers, also by keeping  the grass and weeds cul in the  streets in front'of their "residences  awaken, civ  oi quarter-inch rubber tubing  and a small funnel. Insert tubing in the pipe at the opening,  and pour into it through thc funnel and tubing boiling hot water.  This is not as slow a process as  one might think. A cup of boiling water poured through the  rubber tubing in this way will  melt two inches or more of ice  in-the pipe. Advance thc tubing  .to the surface of the ice as each  cupful of water is poured inlo  the pipe through the tubing. By  this simple process one can very  often gel water in half an hour  or an hour at mosl. If you went  to digging thc pipe up with thc  ground frozen as it now is, you  would not -make much of an impression in that time. If you  cannot reach the pipe so as to  insert thc tubing on thc level,  and have to operate through an  upright pipe, you can siphon thc  cold water out through thc  tubing without much difficulty.  Wilh a larger hose, why could  not this method bc used in connection with our frozen water  mains and thus safe very slow  and costly digging?  War-Mad Soldiers  A few days ago, at Calgary, a  mob of soldiers entered thc  White Lunch parlors, on Eighth  avenue and completely wrecked  the place, causing damage lo thc  amount of $2:5,000. Of lhc occurrence the Herald says:  "Between five and six hundred  men in khaki marched in a body  to lhe Eighth avenue premises  firsL Chief of Police Cuddy had  been warned of thc impending  raid and a force of police was on  hand when thc soldiers arrived.  Chief Cuddy appealed to the  men to disperse, bul his appeal  was totally disregarded, and the  small handful of the chief's men  were ruthlessly swept aside."  The cause of the riot has not  been made known, bul the Herald stales that it seems.lo have  arisen from thc fact that a man  by lhc name of Peterson left the  employ of the White Cafe to enlist. He was rejected as physically unfit and returned lo thc  White Cafe and was taken back.
