Aflcr lhe adoption of the minutes  the question of grant lo the Enderby  Cottage Hospital was laken from the  table.   Aldermen Faulkner and Pell  expressed themselves as opposed to  the  granl  on   lhe  ground   thai  the  question had already been submitted to a vole of the ratepayers and  had failed lo carry.   In thc face of  lhis vote they did'not consider they  would-be justified as aldermen in  voting'lo grant the $35 jpeiv month  asked for.    On a vole being, taken  on  their  resolution  lhal Ihe granl  be  not  allowed,  Alderman  Nichol  stood, with' them   and   Alderman  Johnston and -Mayor Dill voted-in  favor of the granl.

E. Simpson is one of the  pioneer newspapermen of the Province. He is today publishing The  ���������������������������Victorian, at Ihe Provincial capital,  and, as is his custom, hc is making  good. "Old Man" Simpson, as he is  known lo the Provincial knights of  the Fourth Estate, loves the work  and the workers engaged in gelling  out newspapers. And this feeling  is reciprocated. Newspapermen  and workers on newspapers, from  lhe "Ghost" to the "devil," love. Dad  Simpson. II is with more than ordinary appreciation that we reproduce lhe following from The  Victorian:  "The Enderbv Press, published  by Mr. Walker, 'has jusl entered ils  ninth year. There is nol a cleaner  or a more readable paper in the  Province lhan lhe Press, yel the  editor frankly says lhal were it nol  for a little margin on the work in  lhc job oflice he would be unable  lo publish the paper. How many  merchanls are lhere in Enderby  who would make lhat much sacrilice for the good of the town for  eight vears and start in cheerfully  on the ninth? Thc edilor of thc  Press, who is an accomplished  writer, could make more money  sweeping the streets of a cily or  herding cattle in the country, and  vet he labors on week after week  for the good of lhe lown lhat he  loves. Every man in thai bri  lillle city should give the , ,  some kind of an.advertisement, if it  was only ,25c a week. And the men  who can stand it, like managers of  big mercantile institutions or banks  ���������������������������who do not advertise in lhe paper  lhat has sacrificed so much for the  advancement of the town and lo  make business for business men���������������������������  should lake one last lingering look  ,gh,  Press  al themselves in a good mirror and  then go where the cave men dwell  and make a solemn vow 'never io  appear in civilization again until  Ihey have reached lhat stage of appreciation that they are willing  lo reciprocate when work is done  for Ihem. And this applies to every  town in lhe Province.** There is a  bunch of business men up counlry  who are looking for locals aboul a  newlv horn babe, a hen lea party or  a lie aboul "our highly esteemed  and popular merchant prince.  They never pav even their subscription, let alone a cent on advertising  without a grouch that is covered  wilh bristles like the quills of a porcupine.

THURSDAY, MARCH 16, 1916  IT IS UP TO MR. BOWSER  Many explanations have been made lo account  lor tbe recent Government reverses al lhc by-  elections at Vancouver and Victoria, bul lew do  credit lo" thc men whose names arc attached to  lhc explanations.   To say, as some of them arc  credited with saying, that lhe electors switched  from   Conservativisni   to Liberalism,  simply  to  pul two strong men on lhc opposition benches,  seems lo us lo be* tbe silliest kind of clap-trap.  Tbe vole at Vancouver and at Victoria shows  conclusively, we believe, lhat bolh the Prohibitionists and lhe liquor men are after tbe scalp of  Premier Bowser, and, in addition  lo these, thc  pap mongers who have been put out of work by  the general retrenchment policy of thc Government the past year or more.    These voters arc  striking at Premier Bowser over thc shoulders of  Mr. Tisdall  and Mr. Flumcrfclt.    They do nol  wan I to give him a chance lo make good.  There has not been a man in political life in the  Province in the pasl decade or more who has  been so bitterly criticised and condemned. Mr.  -Bow^ei-4ia,s4iad4o=bGaiUli(_J)lam  lime at any department. As attorney general he  has won especial condemnation. Not because of  anv lack of ability.   Wc have never heard even  There has been reported a serious shortage In  cars to handle the shipping in Canada this winter. From all sections come stories of freight tied  up wailing cars. Perhaps, if the truth were  known it is nol a shortage in freight cars so much  as lack of boats to handle the immense cargoes  already at the seaports awaiting shipment, and  the railway companies do nol wish to further  blockade shipments from the seaports by hauling  more freight there from safe points in the interior. A similar conditions of affairs has existed in lhe Eastern States for lhc past two or  more months. In the Chicago Tribune wc learn  "only one of the through railroads between New  York and Chicago has its tracks clear. There are  100,000 cars, loaded to thc roofs, backed up on  thc storage tracks between the two cities. Goods  that left Chicago in December have not yet gotlcn  within 300 miles of the Atlantic coast. The  storage yards, breakup yards, and emergency  tracks scattered all along the right-of-way for a  distance of 900 miles arc chocked with loaded  cars destined for lhc cast. The docks, piers, private warehouses, public storehouses, and finally  lhc bare, open grounds.are piled high with unloaded goods. The freight lying on the ground  alone will total millions of dollars. With the increase in usual spring domestic business coming  on the car shortage situation will become more  acute. Thc congestion is said to bc costing thc  American manufacturers greal losses. In some  instances the freight includes consignments of  machinery that will not arrive a I their destination in time for European harvests."  SATURDAY AFTERNOON HOLIDAY  Mr. Charles D. Wilson, a visitor from the Antipodes, writes in thc Vancouver Province: "We  in the Antipodes have for some ycars carried into  effect jusl such legislation as is now before your  legislature. I refer to the Agricultural Credits  Bill,, referendum on thc prohibition question, and  tbe weekly hall-holiday for stores. The assistance given by the Government of New Zealand  by way of loans at low rates of interest to settlers  on the land has been thc means of bringing into  cultivation a million of acres during the past  twenty ycars. Legislation making il compulsory  for all stores to close a I 1 p.m. on one day in thc  week and observe that half-day as a public holiday has bccii in operation for a number of years.  Throughout thc whole Commonwealth of Australia the Saturday hall-holiday has become universal wherc for ycars Wednesday was the day  observed, the late shopping night reverted from  Saturday tp Friday. Your Premier is to bc commended for his promise to place such legislation  on the statute books, for 1 feel sure employers  and employes alike when once this act becomes  law will thank him for having enabled them to  enjoy a respite on one half day in the week from  toil lo recreation and pleasure. Doubtless a few  small stores Will raise objections, but this is only  lo bc expcctccLwhcrc they have been,accustomed  for so long to the old order of things."  THE APPLE TAX  The new tariff imposts on apples and oils arc  fair. Thc apple tax is something to be rejoiced  in. 11 should give thc British Columbia apple  growers a chance to show what they can really  do. Maybe it will encourage more apple growing"  and less tennis.

Bul Mr.  Bowser as cabinet minister, and Mr. Bowser as  Premier and leader of lhe Conservative parly,  are not to be considered in lhe same light. As  party leader, il i.s up to him to bring aboul harmony, if lhis is possible wilhoul lhe sacrilice of  principle.    He i.s certainly entitled lo the confi-  imli'  Toronto and other quick lunch places. These;  handsome productions of Pacific coast orchards  ���������������������������though inferior in flavor���������������������������make fine window  displays and good pics.

ALMOST FINISHED  One of lhe first draft was knocked out in tbe  Irenches and packed off lo the hospital, still unconscious.

W  one of the strongest and safest premiers this Province has ever had. We can never think of him  as a popular idol, in the eyes of his own party or  of the opposition. He is too strong a man and  too fearless ever to become a popular idol, even  in war times.  Mr. Bowser has, up until now, had very little  opportunity lo show his calibre as Premier. The  meeting of thc Legislature will open up avenues  by which he will bc able to start in motion the  several reforms he is reported lo be in favor of.  He should be given a chance. He has a serious  task to handle, and, as leader of the Government,  should be given tlie loyal support of every property owner in the Province who desires lo see a  business administration.

In; the first place, if his Butter  wrappers are neatly printed with his name and  the brand of the butter on the label, thc 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 his 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 little  butter 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 butter 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 tliis^iointvaWd^can'be^bought-iirsmalH  quantities at the rate of 50c a hundred in 100 or  50 lots.

Renew for The   Press,  $2 per year ^  THURSDAY, MARCH 16,1916  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  AGRICULTURAL  CREDITS ACT  Mr. Alexander Lucas, .member for Yale in the  Provincial Legislature, met British Columbia  farmers in convention at Victoria last week and  took the opportunity to place before them the  salient features of the Agricultural Credits Act.  It is hoped by the Provincial Government to be  able to put the new Act into force within the next  few weeks.  "The reason for the Government undertaking  to furnish credit to the farmers of the Province,"  he said, "is that none of the monetary institutions in the Dominion will loan money to farmers on terms attractive enough to enable them  to make improvements of a productive, nature.  The institutions from which the farmer might  get credit will not lend him money for a sufficiently long period of time at a rate of interest  low enough to be practical. Thc farmer also  wants the privilege of repaying thc whole or any  part of his loan at any time. Thc experience in  other countries and in the Dominion demonstrates clearly that this is thc kind of credit the.  agricultural industry requires.  Mr. Lucas explained that the British Columbia  Agricultural Credits Act passed last session is  largely based on the Rural Credit Act of New  Zealand. Before the operation of the scheme in  New Zealand the'agricultural products exported  amounted to $30 per capita. In 1912, chcifly  because of the operation of the Act, the value of  exports had risen to $111.78 per capita, being the  highest in any country in thc world. At the same  time thc number of bank accounts increased so  that there is now a bank account for every two  and a half persons in the country. Each of these  accounts has an average of $207.     '.  Mr. Lucas explained that when the Credits Act  is brought into force in British Columbia the  . commission, before granting credit,  will have  to be satisfied  with the applicant's ability  to  make a living for himself.   Above all else, how-  / ever, character will count, perhaps as the most  fundamental basis of credit in this, as is the case  in thc business world.   Proofs of sobriety, industry and ability to workwill.be requisites.     Another factor the commission will take into consideration before granting a loan will be the  position of a man's land and its productiveness.  . In New Zealand and Australia the government  ������������������will not extend credit on property that is more  .  than 18 or 20 miles from a railroad.   It is con-  -; sidcrcd rather doubtful whether anyone working  so far from a market "would bc able" to make a  success of his farming, unless hc happened to be  , engaged in sheep-raising or cattle-ranching..  ���������������������������;     It was explained that the delay in bringing .die  Credits Act into force was due chiefly to the in-  / advisability of the Government paying, the high  prices for money that have been prevalent for.  : thc past year.      If  the Government borrowed  money at 7 per cent^ it would mean that the  money could not be loaned to farmers under 8  per cent, as it will take 1 per cent for.administration.   To expect a farmer to pay 8 per cent on  his money is out of the question. -  The farmers of the convention expressed their  commendation of the Government's Agricultural  . Credits Act and asked that it be made effective  immediately-.  ATTEMPTING TOO MUCH ?  ie working popu  be seriously felt.  In a speech at Montreal a few nights ago, Sir  Thomas Shaughnessy said: ,'T cannot believe the  suggestion emanating from the Premier, that we  should endeavor to raise 500,000 men, is a practicable suggestion.   If we Were to attempt to raise  500.000, or add 225,000 to our present army, wc  would be making a draft upon t  lation of this country that^vould  Within the past few days T have received a com  munication from  the Agricultural Department,  asking if the C.P.R. could not lend its assistance  to bringing 10,000 agriculturists to the Western  Provinces to assist in seeding and harvesting, and  taking them home after it is finished/With such  conditions facing us, wc must go slowly about  recruiting, and carry out the best plans For the  country in a sane, methodical and businesslike  way.    Some of the first contingent arc still in  camp in England.    Meantime wc have 130,000  men here, representing an outlay of $10,000,000,  or probably $12,000,000, a month, who by ho process I know of can be moved across for a very  long time to come.   Probably it would have been  belter to have moved more slowly and saved  $5,000,000 a-month for use hereafter, but wc  have them now and must maintain them.   But  will it bc wise for us, with these 130,000, to go on  increasing the debt of the country and therefore  lessening our ability to be of financial service to  thc Empire when thc time comes, if itshould,  when wc arc called upon for such assistance?   If  thc time comes, wc must make any sacrifice  whatever to get the requisite number of troops  to the front to save the situation.   Wc must resort to conscription if necessary,although I do not  think we are prepared for that, or thai it will be  necessary."  Sir Sam Hughes, speaking at thc same meeting  made brief reference to Sir Thomas Shaugh-  ncssy's speech. "I am sorry," he said, "Lord  Shaughnessy does not agree with our plan of  raising regiments. We arc willing to trust him  with the management and raising of railroads,  but I have probably had as much experience as  most in the raising of men, and so far -with fairly  good success."  THE AGE OF ADVERTISING  Give Your Home Printer a  Chance at Your���������������������������  WHAT THE FARMER CAN DO  Speaking before the Farmers' Institute convention in Victoria a few-'days ago*'Mr. W. E.  Scott, deputy minister of agriculture, said:  "_n these days of national stress and trial,  =jwheii^thc.^ery.lmanhoo_d^  sorely tried, the word 'duty' is on everyone's lips,  and wc arc asking ourselves what our duty may  bc, and how can wc help? How can those of us  who, for one reason and another, may not have  the privilege of serving our country at thc front,  help? How can farmers help? Surely wc can  do a great deal. You farmers have given what is  dearest to you���������������������������your sons and relatives���������������������������and  you have also given of your means and resources  and will confinueytbydo soV^What niorc cairyou  do? I would answer, you can do a great deal by  keeping a smiling face in these troublous times,  by trying to keep things going as usual, by redoubling your efforts to increase production in  every way possible. Grow more and better  crops. Keep more and better stock. What a  difference it would make if every farmer were  to grow an acre more of grain, and raise some  of those calves you are now in the habit of sending to the butcher each year, if you were to keep  more hogs, sheep, and poultry. B}r*so doing, you  would bfc increasing the wealth of the Province  and indirectly contributing to the successful production of this Avar.  "Let us, then, try to do our duty, and let us not  be discouraged, but remember that there is a  silver lining to every cloud, and that the sun,  which is now hidden by the black clouds of Avar,  will again shine in all its glory. May that day bc  not far dsitant, and let us hope that when we  next meet in convention the blesings of a lasting  peace will have been assured the world."  MR. SHATFORD MAY GET PORTFOLIO  According to the Penticton Herald, it is rumored in legislative ^circles at Victoria that when  the office of Minister of Agriculture is created the  portfolio will be offered to Mr. L. A. Shatford,  member for the Similkameen. Mr. Shatford has  already been appointed chairman of thc ways  and means committee.  This is the.age of advertising.

Thc manufacturer of  Branded goods learned more slowly that a properly planned advertising campaign would creale  a sale for his goods through the regular channels  of trade.

If,  during the usual conversation over dinner, Mr.  Galletly recommended certain investments, nobody would suggest that llie bank was liable. But  if the bank manager saw Captain Banbury at the  bank premises as a customer or a prospective  customer of the bank, that was a different matter.

Out here  We're up to our knees in water;  J)o you think we are standing in  beer?  Incredible as it May Seem  Some men may yet be found,  incredible as il may seem, who  arc attempting lo do business as  merchanls, and depending upon  mouth to mouth conveyance ol  news for the spread of the good  repute of their business, believing that they do nol need to advertise' in their local papers.  They are, however, becoming  less and less bv virtue of such  belief. Here is lhe opinion ol a  contemporary on such methods  and merchanls:  "That condition may have prevailed   many   years   ago   when  people who had nothing to do  but  gossip  about  their  neighbors.'   In those limes everyone  discussed all of his home purchases with all of his neighbors.  Today a man who depends upon  conversation    and    gossip    to  spread the news of his store will  nol find that his place of business is much frequented.    Thc  world is full of wide interests,  and thc bargains one may find  in a certain store arc ordinarily  known only to those who find  them.    The  newspaper  is  the  only efficient means of acquaint-  news oi' thc community. For one  person that will learn something  about a given store by word ol  mouth, aJuindrcd learn about it  through newspaper notices. The  advertising columns of a newspaper are read just as attentively as any sensation that may appear in the news columns.   The  results of the two policies arc  obvious.   In one case thc merchant drags along, with only a  small  part  of   the  community  knowing anything aboul what  is happening in his store.   In the  other case, practically everyone  knows when thai merchant has  special bargains, and what can  bc done in his store at any given  time.    Can  there be thc least  question, as to what kind of merchants get the business?"  Brighten Up  Now is the time to paint an  and out.
