C.March 9, 1916  AND      WALKER'S      WEEKLY  Vol. 9; No. 2;   Whole No, 418  Enderby Growers' Association  Makes Progress in the Past Year  The   annual   meeting of the  Enderby   Growers'   Association  was held in K, of P. Hall Saturday afternoon, there being sonic  twenty members   present.    In  opening the meeting, President  "Little-, spoke   encouragingly of  the past year's business, though,  he admitted that there did seem  to be a disposition on the part of  . thc Central Selling Agency to  give more attention to the fruit  end of the business than to the  produce end.   He was asked by  Mr. Thos. Skyrme if it was not  . the growing opinion of the men  yat the head of the organization  that" there .would have to be a  - produce nifih at; the head of thc  -salesdepartment .to handle pro-  7 tlucc arid a fruit mail to handle  7 -,fruit; In. replyVMr.;Little said  tliat \iiider -the management 6f-  ; Mr. Robertson," 'a-similar: com^  .plaint .had been heard,.and for;  ���������������������������. thislrcason.as much as any other  "when .Tit-came to;. appointing, "a-  hew "manager last year, Mr. Jackson was, chosen,because he-was  under this system the small producer would get thc best results.  Showing thc volume of business handled by thc Central the  past year, Mr. Little quoted the  figures of 1913-14-15. In 1913  the business handled amounted  lo $438,000; in 1914, $409,000,  and in 1915, $654,000. Thus il  will bc seen that Central had  paid -lo -the growers nearly  a quarter of a million dollars  more in 1915 than in 1914.  . Mr. Little spoke with pleasure  of the success .of the fruit growers in having had a protective  tariff of. 35c a box imposed on  apples, from the American side.  The influence of .this stimulus,  h<f said, vvould/be tremendous.  "If wc.get the returns of the past  year .we ������������������an prosper, but wc can  not liopc to increase the price to  the. consumer."/ ' ' -''-;���������������������������" V -'-'"  VThc "question of hay, shipments, seemed to be a "touchy^  :oiie:r���������������������������He had-to.a������������������ij.ii.'ii'ici_yr___v  amount handled-by Central did  not; compare, with' that handled  "Dear- Sir:" Attached please find  trading-account, prollt and loss account for year ended.

He thought thc'and perhaps the fellow outside  trouble was.not so much in the  salcsmanagcr as in the supply  and'demand. This year's returns have bceii more lhan satisfactory to the.fruit men, and  as unsatisfactory to the "produce  men.   Te unusual, condition of  l���������������������������  the market, hc thought, was responsible for this.  He said Manager Jackson has  signified his willingness to stay  with-the Central another season,  provided . it ��������������������������� is thc wish of tlie  members that he should do so.  . This will be decided at the an-  __nual_ meeting_ol'_th__ Central to  bc held at Vernon on the 15th.  Thc efforts of the Central Selling Agency the past season to  eliminate the commission men  in disposing of thc Okanagan  product liavc, hc said, been very  satisfactory. No doubt mistakes  have been made and will bc  made, but hc assured the members tliat thc men directing the  organization and shaping its  policy were conscientiously and  unsclQshlp working for the best  interests of each and all. He  said lhe "orchard pack" shipments the past season gave  promise of proving a great boon  to the apple men, particularly of  the -northern, end of the Valley.  But members took advantage of  the    conditions    under   which  - these shipments were to have  - been made and by their abuse of  the privilege had all but ruined  the market for .the "orchard  pack." It was never intended*  he  said,   that   the   apple   men  ��������������������������� should be allowed to ship pig  feed in these crates, and that is  what some of them did. As it  now stands, the Central Agency  has about concluded to withdraw the "orchard pack" next  season because of the abuse it  was put, to by some shippers.  This intention may be altered at  the annual meeting on the 15th.  The question of district pooling as against the general cooperative pool, will be decided  at the annual meeting. Hc was  strongly in favor of general cooperative pooling, as he believed  thc organization has been getting better prices than members  of .the association.... There was  also room for complaint at the  adjustment of claims/ But all  these questions the directors are  looking into, and *\vill do everything in their power to perfecta  policy which will bring a better  state of tilings for the growers  and producers,who stand by the  association loyally.  The great trouble in the handling of the hay this year, he said,  was in the inability of the salcs-  managcrs.to gct.cars in.which.to  make shipments. Hc could not  understand the policy of the  railway company in hauling  cars into the Valley full and then  hauling Ihem back to the coast  empty,' with hay waiting at thc  siding for cars. Hc quoted one  case where lhc local manager  had to refuse an order for fifteen  cars of hay because he could not  get tl)c cars to make the shipment At the same time an outside competitor had to turn  down an order for five cars for  lhe same-reason. Another failing, he said, was in growers not  knowing what they-would have  to offer for sale until the last  moment, and then expecting the  local manager to find a market  j list when the grower was. prepared to, bring it in.  Mr. Little discouraged the  idea of heavier vegetable planting this year. He declared the  price paid by the evaporators in  the Valley .simply saved the  vegetables from being dumped.  If these institutions are only going to pay from $6 to $9 per ton  it means only a poor existence  for the growers.  Copies of the financial.statement for the past year were  handed to the members present,  and the following report by Mr.  W. J. Dowall, secretary of the  Central Selling Agency, was  read to the meeting, showing thc  condition of affairs at the close  of lhc year, Feb. 29, 1916:  II. G.

THURSDAY, MARCH 9, 1916  CONSERVATIVES IN REVOLT  There can be but one explanation of the result  of lhc bv-eleclions al Vancouver and Victoria the  past week, when Mr. Tisdall and Mr. Flumcrfcll,  cabinet ministers in the Bowser. Government,  were overwhelmingly defeated, ll was no feeling  of animosity or lack, of confidence on the part of  thc electors toward or in the men themselves.  Mr. Tisdall was perhaps one of lhc strongest men  in lhc Conservative parly in Vancouver, and Mr.  Fhmierfell holds an equally strong position in  business and political circles at Victoria. Under  ordinary conditions, either of these men would  have been elected hands down. Bul both were  defeated by majorities which cannot be misunderstood" nor explained away.  Their defeat indicates a revolt in lhc Conservative ranks at the coast cities. The revolt is sure,  lis cause may bc two-fold, but lo one nol on the  inside, il would appear lo be lhe sequence of the  personal differences which came to the surface  lasl fall between Sir Richard McBride and Mr.  Bowser and other ministers. The friends of Sir  Richard are. showing Ihcy arc prepared to sacrilice the parly in order" lo get even wilh Mr.  J3o-\vsQii.=-wl lo-assu m ecUthc__lca_ler_ibJ p__u jlou_Si.il  Richard's stepping down. Thc coast by-elections  cannol be taken as an -indication of-so .great a  growth, of Liberalism. There has been nothing  accomplished by the Liberal party in Canada, and  certainly nothing in Saskelchewan and Brilish  Columbia, to cause so greal a slump from Conservatism lo Liberalism. 11 is only lhc result of the  family quarrel between the deposed leader and his  followers'and. Mr. Bowser and his followers.  Thel^is"'ToMriolnl^  re.sulis. The revolt is not against Conservatism.  II is against the domineering policy assumed by  the parly organization. There are other ridings  in the Province where the lesson should be taken  to heart. If it i.s nol, when the general election is  held, there will be hundreds of Conservatives voters who will "show up missing."  CIDER AND INDIANS  futile. No man, be he Chinaman or Indian, white  man or Hindo, should bc allowed to infringe upon  existing laws, but it requires more than the guess,  thc opinion or the desire of an individual to bring  the law upon him. The compelling force in community life that-makes for better conditions is not  thc law of crime, but the law of ncighborliness.  THEN AND NOW AND LATER  Of course it costs more to live loday than it  ever did before, but isn't it worth more? We are  witnessing some of lhe greatest things the world  has ever seen, though not permitted lo know anything aboul il. Thc greatest war of all ages is  nov/on; the greatest advances in all sciences���������������������������except thc science of living���������������������������arc now being witnessed; wc arc Hying in the air and running our  ships below the water's surface; formidable fortresses lhat. have defied the advances of. armies in  ages pasl arc today pounded lo powder in a day  or two by great machines of destruction. Time  and distance arc today nothing, compared wilh  what used lo be nol so many years ago. Where  il used lo require weeks and months lo gel word  across the continent or from one continent lo another, it now requires bul a second. Indeed, lhere  seems to no end lo lhc wonders of the age, and  the unbelievable advances the world has made in  lhc pasl half century.  But have.these advances brought a greater degree of contentment to mankind? Have vyc not  failed Lo advance in the science of living in the  measure lhal we have developed in tlie sciences  of commerce, of war, of destruction? Has life  been made lo mean more by the great strides wc  have made in olher directions? Have wc not  neglected lhc science of life for the other sciences  which have contributed to lhe development of the  financial side of existence?  Whal will be lhc result? Can there bc but one  result? The world has developed in lhc line of  opposition, sclf-inlcrcsl, destruction. Individuals  and nations have and arc attempting lo build  themselves up by tearing others down. Wc hope  lo grow up oul of lhc prostrate form of our competitor, bc he the neighbor next door or lhc empire across ihe boundary line. It is a policy of  destruction, and can have bul one result in the  ultimate���������������������������destruction. There musl follow in the  wake of such a policy thc germ tliat will fasten  itself upon the garments of the victor and ultimately bring him down. And until lhc destruction is complete lhere can bc no permanent peace  and no permanent growth upon which civilization  can stand. Thc germ of destruction must be  rooted out, individually and collectively, otherwise thc paradise we live in is but. a fool's'paradise. II is worth more to be alive today lhan ever  before in the world's history���������������������������provided wc live  lo profit by the mistakes of lhc past.  TAKING A CELLULOID CHANCE  As is to bc expected, there is considerable opposition to the proposed "preparedness" policy of  the United Stales government. 11 is declared by  a prominent public man of thc stales lhat the  most formidable opposition to the national defense campaign comes from thc churches. "I have  organized twenty-five slates," said he, "and I want  to tell you the people arc asleep on this vital question. The cities arc only a little more awake lhan  the counlry districts. "The people don't realize  that if we became engaged in armed conflict, we  should have aboul as much chance of winning as  a celluloid dog chasing an asbestos cat through  lhe fires of hell."  5.th^BATTALI0N^DOING^WELIr  No doubt Mayor Dill and Provincial Constable  Pallon will feel chagrined al having failed in Iheir  ell'orts to get a conviction in lhe eases of * the  Chinese reslauranl-keeper, Wing Chung, and the  storekeeper. Sing Kee, for selling intoxicants lo an  Indian. In both of these cases lhe charge was dismissed bv Magistrate Rosoman owing to lack of  evidence "to convict. The cost of lhe prosecution  will fall upon lhc city. One hundred dollars will  probably cover lhe cosl lo thc city. Nol a large  amount, but large enough under the circumstances. It should he a valuable lesson. We believe from general conversation lhal the people  of Enderbv "have had quite enough of lhis effort  on the pari of individuals to bring the law upon  other individuals who do nol conform lo Uic  wishes and desires of individual No. One. The  hv-law passed lasl year and repealed lhis year  compelling storekeepers to close Iheir places of  business Thursday afternoons was another effort  of a similar nature. Such ell'orts are sure to prove  A letter recently received from Capt. Cameron  says lhc 5 lib Battalion "have-.achieved quite.a  reputation for discipline and good behaviour. The  men maintain order amongst thcmscvlcs, which  is a very good sign." Hc stales that the 54th has  been..moved from. Rramsholt lo YVibley Camp.  F. Kemp, from Hupel, is in Capt Cameron's com-  pany, and, he-.ss.iy-s,-is-ver-y-wcll.-He has.applicd  lo undergo training as a company scout Morris  Sail is also there, and, according to the Captain,  "is quite happy and thoroughly satisfied with his  lot, having taken quite naturally and easily to  soldiering."  BASIL GARDOM SERIOUSLY ILL  Mr. Basil Gardom of Mission, says the Vancouver Province, was taken .seriously ill early in  lhc week and brought lo the Georgia Street Hospital. He was in the cily on election day and appeared perfectly well. Lasl Monday, however, he  apparently caught cold and developed a high  lemperaluc. He was worse on Tuesday and became delirious. Mrs. Gardom managed lo get  him into Vancouver and up to the hospital where,  al latest reports, he was resting more easily.

OKANAGAN SAW MILLS, Ltd. Enderby  King Edward  A name that stands for the best in hotel service  King Edward Hotel,  P. H. MURPHY  Proprietor  Enderby  ButterWrapper  Parchment  The Dominion law against the selling of  butter without the words "Dairy Butter", or  "Creamery Butter"���������������������������as the case may be���������������������������printed  on .the butter wrap, is a blessing in disguise to the  average farmer. In the first place, if his Butter  wrappers are neatly printed with his name and  thc brand of the butter on the label, the storekeepers can readily sell the butter at 5c a pound  more than he can get for butter wrapped in paper  that is not printed, and the butter-maker gets the  advantage in 5c a pound more for Ins butter from  the merchant.  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 lillle  buller that it does not appear to them that 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 this point, ancl can be bought in small  i[ u a n li I i cs^a Hlttrra I e"t������������������H)0c^rli u n drednirl OO^or ^  50 lots.

In one of the offices of a city department there  is an old employe. He has been 'in the service of  Philadelphia for upwards of twenty years. Somehow the periodic upheavals which mark changes  in administration have left him undisturbed. Like  the great bulk of the city's work, the duties of this  particular veteran do not call for certain views on  political questions, nor are they affected by party  affiliations. He is required to maintain accurately,  a system of non-partizan records, and the method  of "doing this is not defined in the platform of  any political parly.  During the long period of continuous service he  has become an expert in his line. He knows the  geography of thc cityjrom A to Z. When it is  necessary to ascertain in what ward a certain  street number is located hc does not have to refer  to an index or a map, but can answer the question  immediately. Hc knows that No. 713 is in ward  X, while .No**. 715 of the same street is in ward Y.  He can tell you off-hand a thousand details that  less experienced persons would spend hours in  finding out. Not long ago a spell of sickness  forced this veteran to be absent from duty, for  several weeks. His work had to be done by clerks  who were comparatively new in the office. They  were intelligent., able and rapid, but did not possess lhat expertness, that store of ready information and thai familiarity with the minutiae of the  . absent employe's routine which ycars of experience alone can give.' The result was that three  clerks had to give their entire time in order to  keep up thc current work which the regular man  had bccn.doing all alone.  ' The moral of lhis little talc is obvious. If wc  want cily service of experts wc must begin by assuring continuous employment. If wc want to  take care of the increasing amount of business  without making greater outlays, \ve" must retain  our experts and develop others into experts. To  secure permanency of tenure during efficient service in all non-policy determining offices is one of  the cardinal purposes of the civil service law. It  follows, therefore, that a strict.observance of tlie  spirit as well as of the letter of this law *\yill do  ,, much to promote efficiency and economy" in our  .city  third didn't dare sayjier soul'was. her own when  her husband was around, though she used lo  write some lovely essays when she was at school  on "The Emancipation of Woman." The fourth  woman on whom the investigator called was just  suing for divorce.  The young lady went home, sat down and considered the evidence she had accumulated. Then  she wrote a letter to the young man who had proposed, setting an early date for the wedding.  GETTING INTO THE MOVIES  government.  ON VERGE OF LUMBER BOOM  That British Columbia is on thc.vcrge of a lumber trade boom, is tlie una nimbus opinion of all  those connected with the industry. For some  time the mills and logging camps have not been  busy, and during-thc recent cold snap both mills  and camps closed, for thc reason that they could  nol operate under such conditions. During thc  . whole of the past year a feeling of doubt and uncertainty has pervaded thc lumber world, due  largely fo thc fact that the 1914 harvest was a  partial failure, and lumber demand fell off as a  consequence. Now that has changed, and the industry is on the trcshold of belter times than it  has known for some, ycars. Moreover, most of,  the trade which is about to come the. way of the  limber in en is Canadian. The heaviest demands  arc coming from thc prairie, that is to say, the  heaviest demands that can bc inct, for thc question of shipping lumber overseas'is out of court,  due to the fact that there arc no ships available  to handle it.  ==^Thcn5ast^veck^a^MrriKahlrtreprcsenting--.the  Northern Lumber Company, of Coronation, was  a visitor to the Okanagan Saw Mills to sbsc up the  stock carried. Hc has taken in all thc mills of any  consequence in the Province, and declared he  found most of them short of slock demanded by  the market. He said the demand has increased to  an enormous extent throughout the,, prairie country, and the yards arc already having to skirmish  around for lumber to meet, lhc demand. Thc  price has gone up considerably, and he predicted  lhat it would remain up for the season.  The Okanagan Saw Mills, Ltd., is experiencing  no dillicully in the matter of getting orders, but  thc business has been badly crippled owing to a  shortage in cars to handle the business. >  Just our luck! Enderby has on several occasions  missed getting into the movies by the narrowest  kind of a flicker. Last week's cider episode was  one of them. The details were sufficient, the plot  ample, and the staging effective. But just when  the camera man should have appeared upon the  scene, the exchange editor of the Vancouver Province butted in and spoilt Enderby's chances. He  "grape-vined" our story- of the comedy and then  gave it a Bella Coola date. And the' camera man.  was thereby sent on a false chase.     What a pity!  What a film it y/ould have made! The applejack; the mayor washing -the jug and bottles; the  constables rinsing them, marking them and smelling them; the dusky Redman stealing away in the  dark oi night with jug and bottles and marked  dollar bills to purchase from the wiley Wing Chung  and Sing Kee samples of the deadly apple juice!  What a movie! Then, in the shadow of the Redman and the jug, following closely upon the heels  of the fleeting dollar bills, the duty-bound officers  of the law, shadowing the open doors and windows  of the cider vendors; the capture of the coveted  jug and other containers; the arrest of the supposed culprits; filling and sealing of the bottles  from the jug; the twenty-hours of court hearing  with awe-inspiring crowds of curious spectators;  the analytical guesses and expert opinion as to two  and four per cent, and the possibilities of a jag!  What a film! Then, -follow closely, the hopes and  ambitions of a lofty ideal vanishing in thin air;  Economy in tears, and Virtuer casting pleading  glances at the -slant-eyed cider kings as they  pocket the long-green hundreds given by them as  bail pending trial; see the anguish of the city,  fathers, the frowning of the coffers, as they see  flashed upon the screen a picture of the pay cheque  for fifty plunks which went to the analyst who  came to tell the court that in his. expert opinion  apple, cider is intoxicating if you can drink enough  of it!   What a movie it would have made!'   - ���������������������������"   -  Give Your Home Printer a  Chance at Your���������������������������  FAITHFUL BOB  THE LOGIC OF A WOMAN  Constable Bailey believes that you must get your  happiness out of your work or you'll never know  what happiness- is,  though he never told us so.  Before he was made city constable, he was just  plain Bob.   He is yet.    When the city waterpipes  were laid, Bob was on the job.    'He knows where  every  "T" was placed and. the size and pattern  of every shut. if.. In the freeze-up. troubles of the  past winter, "Bob" has been worth his,weight in  gold. 'He must have saved the city two or three  times the amount of his salary.     He left his constable "duds" at home and has taken charge of  the work of thawing the water mains.

Sf\  girl who  a young  Elbert Hubbard used to tell about a  had a proposal of marriage. Being  woman of unusual ideas, she asked for a week in  which to make up her mind. . She then organized  herself into an investigating committee and commenced taking testimony from the married ladies  of her acquaintance. The first one she visited  used to be a belle and thc most admired girl in tlie  town before she was married. Tbe cross-examination brought out that she had three children, did  all her own work, including her washing and  ironing, and hadn't been down town for four  weeks, and that her husband had given her but $2  since she was married, and that lie had borrowed  and forgot to pay back $10 which her brother  once gave for a Christmas present. He bought a  new overcoat with the money, while she wore the  same plush coat she wore when lie was courting  her. Another woman whom the young lady  visited had quit teaching school three years before  to marry "the handsomest and best-dressed man  in town," and now she was supporting him.   A  "When the Creator had made all the good  things, there was still some dirty work to do, so  He made the beasts and reptiles and poisonous  insects, and when He had finished He had some  scraps that were too bad to put into the Rattle  Snake, the Hyena, the Scorpion and the Skunk,  so He put all these together, covered it with  suspicion, wrapped it with jealousy, marked it  with a yellow streak and called it a KNOCKER.  "This product was so fearful to contemplate  that he had to make something to counteract it,  so He took a sunbeam and put it in the heart of  a child, the brain of a man, wrapped these in  civic pride, covered it with brotherly love, gave  it a mask of velvet and a grasp of steel, and called  it a BOOSTER; made him a lover of fields and  flowers and manly sports, a believer in equality  and justice, and ever since where these were,  mortal man has had the privilege of choosing his  associates."

J.E.CRANE  AC.FNT  FRESH  FISH  EVERY   THURSDAY  GEO. R. SHARPE  WHOLESALE - HI-TAIL BUTCHER  '���������������������������Tlie German offensive around  Verdun has spread until the battle now extends from the Champagne district, forty miles west  of Verdun, nearly to St. Mihiel,  to the southeast of Verdun. Thc  battle, which has been raging  for two weeks, will go down m  history as one of the world's  most deadly encounters. Thousands of dead and wounded lie in  thc Verdun forests and olher  thousands are in lhe plain north  of Pepper Heights. Accurate  figures on the casualties are not  available, but their extent can be  imagined by thc first reports  from surgeons,. who said that  whole regiments on bolh sides  disappeared in the fighting.  As to net results of the offensive thus tar, bolh sides seem to  be satisfied. Thc Germans have  captured and hold "the mighty  corncr-slone of .the pcrmaent  stronghold of Verdun, namely,  Fort bouaumont," and have for  the past week been pounding  olher forts protecting Verdun.  Berlin reports show great jubilation over the'success thus far  attained, bul, on thc other hand,  llie French official report says  lhal "Verdun, lhc object of all  this sacrifice, is now nothing but  an ancient fortress, and even il"  thc Germans lake it they will  find nothing bul an empty shell.  Fori Donaumont, before which  such a sacrifice in lives has been  made, holds neither cannon nor  garrison. J.ofl'rc has profited by  the supreme lesson of this war,  that fortresses do not compare  as defences wilh trenches, and  has left Verdun practically in  lhc posi lion of an open city. Not  far short of 200,000" men have  been thrown away for a position  of no value."  I Commenting on this phase of  lhc"(|ucslion, J. L. Garvin cables  the Vancouver Province from  London: "Verdun, so Tar, is an  overture suggesting thc spirit of  lhc impending conflict, nol the  plot. Thc pause will doubtless  be short. The overture scored  with thunder and eruption is  enough" in itself lo introduce a  irilogy in hell's amphitheatre or  even split lhc cars of devildom.  Yet even with minds so steeled  as ours now arc lo lhe moral  lests of war and so hard to disturb, wc persist in regarding  lhis colossal onslaught as only  lhc prelude to lhc real climax.  "The   enemy's   lasl   hope   of  cither forcing*a victory on ensuring a draw must.be realized  or ruined between now and autumn. " After that, il will bc too  late.    From their own point of  vi cav-HI 1 c**G cr m a n s^a r c-cn ga gcd-  in no blind gamble.    They arc  playing their cards well and doing the right things.   It is easy  lo" put  into   their  mouths   the  words of foreboding of Pyrrhus  at. Assulum, "another such victory and I am undone."   The analogy   is    tempting   and   may  .|)ro_rc^n.ot_iil.Lo.gcilxcr_inc_iriH*?ct������������������.  ��������������������������� but cool judges regard it as only  I partly.sound.   The Germans are  'proportioning, .their    risks    to  i Iheir objects.'  It may well bc lhc  best policy to accumulate losses  in supreme attempts during the  opening of a'campaign rather  than  spread  out  the casualties  through the longer period in a  way that could only mean final  ' Tnihire  and  collapse next year  ���������������������������through decline of effectives in  lhc field." For these reasons, lhe  Germans  must  now put  forth  'Iheir utmost strength by land,  sea and air.  !    "We expect the next three or  four months to be as critical as  any equal term in human history and we rather believe, pcr-  ; soiially, lhat the next six weeks  i will be the biggest time lhat anyone now living is likely lo see.  ; Willi lhc naval issue, it will bc  heller nol to deal today.   As regards lhe new piracy, we must  ;'first see what follows the adver-  'lisemenl.

Good Roads Meeting  Following the meeting of thc  Enderbv   Growers'  Association  in K. of P. Hail Saturday afternoon,  lliosc in 'attendance,  together with a large number of  other citizens of the lown and  district, organized a meeting to  discuss lhc question of forming  a Good Roads Society for the  district.    Mr.  F.  Hassard   was  voted to the chair, and Mr. H. H.  Worthington was asked  lo act  as secretary.   Thc question was  discussed from many sides, for  and   against    thc   proposition,  Messrs. Skvrme, Little, Davics,  Handcock, Collarl, McKay and  others taking part in the discussion.   It was pointed out by Mr.  Hassard   on   taking   the. chair,  that the purpose was lo sec il a  Good Roads association  covering the whole district could not  be"organized, leaving thc matter  of politics out of Ihe.proposition  and each and all working together to get belter roads.   He  pointed out thc inadequacy of  the present system of. handling  road work, and to the splendid  results   in   other   localities   obtained through Good Roads societies.    After  the  matter had  been threshed out thoroughly, it  was decided that such an organization should be formed here,  lo be operated on thc lines of the  Good Roads societies in Ontario  and elsewhere. A committe consisting of Messrs. Hassard, Worthington, Walker, Davics, Thos.  Sharpe   and   Murphy   was   appointed by lhe meeting lo get all  the information  possible from  other localities where thc movement has been in operation, and  to  report a I  a . meeting  to bc  called by the chair.
