The feeling of the meeting  from the outset was unanimous on  two points���������������������������that a* compulsory  weekly half holiday should be established by, law, and that the half  day selected should be Saturday  afternoon and evening. Without a  dissenting voice this was the instruction given to a large deputation representative of the clerks  and merchants who will appear  before the Provincial Government.

The Mayor was authorized to  have the Fulton Hardware Co. examine the roof of the City Hall and  if the same could bc repaired satisfactorily to have the work*done.. '  Aid.

The  motion was laid over for further  consideration, after considerable  discussion.  'Aid. Pell, chairman of the board  of works, brought up the question  of repairing Vernon road. He  pointed out that owing to the nar-  lowness" of the road it was not  practicable lo raise it very much  in the centre, and asking the Council to decide whal had belter be  done' as regards repairs. It was  left to the Mayor and Aid. Pell to  do what they considered best in  the matter.  Aid. Nichol called attention to  the condition of the lots on the  corner of Cliff and Belvedere Sis.,  slating that there was,an old cesspool there which should beVlonc  away with, and that lhe cans and  rubbish lying on thc lot should, be  cleared away. Hc also urged thc  removal of the manure piles aboul  the fire hydrants as soon as possible. The matter was left in the  hands of the health committee.  II was ordered lhat the water  pipes be removed from the bridge  and stored by burial al some suitable spot for-preservation.  A report was read from Electrician Mann relating to lhc burning  out of lhc electric thawing machine  and the Clerk was instructed to  send a copy of lhe report to thc  manufacturers of the machine and  asking that a new coil be for-  1 warded to make good tlie loss.  chimney has been repaired to the ves|or bec;llISC,0r the" longer  satisfaction of the board  which Ihey run.  crm  But  the interest  Attention  havjng been  called  to  rjjtc of lhe 1)r0scnt JSSUC is certainly gratifying to lhc Government.

THURSDAY, MARCH 30i ;19l"6  THE HALE-HOLIDAY MOVEMENT  Tn many- parts.of the Province,-"particularly in  thc coast cities, Lhere is a revival of the movement for a half-holiday, and gradually the ieeJing  is turning vcrv largely in favor ol Saturday allcr-  noon instead ol' mid-week as:heretofore." A Vancouver merchant argues in the Province:  "Yes J am iu favor.oi* a weekly nall-honday  and think that Saturday afternoon is' the ideal  lime for il. Then if the boys want a game ol  football or ba.sebalMJiey don't,hayc to hop round  'counters wilh still* joints the "day alter. .Dont  balk at this, brother merchant.

The idea of this hali'-holday proposition," m lhc  past, seems to have been lo close up when there  was'the least prospect of doing business by the  ^mei-cl ia n ts.^LlieJLdea_oVU-being.ma(icya 1>HH_J._L  proposition���������������������������something everybody could participate in and enjov, seems lo have never entered  inlo lhe consideration. 11 was a day on which  the tired merchanls and clerks wanted a rest. 11  made no provision for lhe lired mechanic, or the  tired farmer, or the lired laborer ol any other  calling.

The self-mteresl would  also be cul oul of il. There can he no doubt as  lo the belter dav. and, if lhe Provincial (..ovcrn-  menl is going to lake a hand in the mailer, il is  highlv improbable lhal any olher day would bc  considered.  STUDY OF AGRICULTURE  In the press reports of the proceedings of thc  recent meeting of the senate of the,University of  Brilish Columbia, it was staled lhal a letter was  read from Dr. E. XV. Sawyer of Summerland, in  which he expressed lhe opinion lhal the study of  agriculture was oul of place in lhe arls course.  The high standing and acknowledged ability of  Dr. Sawyer in his chosen sphere might lead to  misapprehension if fuller information were not  given, and Mr. .lohn R. Brown, of Vernon, a  delegate lo the Central Farmers' "Inslilulc al Victoria, and a member-elect of thai body lo lhe  agricullural advisory board, writes lliese words  ol* explanation:  "The addresses  of  President Weslbrook  and  Dean Klinck of'the university, given at our meeting were highly appreciated,'and the statement  of lhe president that the dean was giving instruction in agricullurc to students taking thc arts  course, was received with loud applause. The  opinions of those attending the Farmers' Institute  and lhc Slock Breeders' Association were apparently unanimous in favor of the course pursued'  by the University in relation to agriculture. A  resolution favoring the leaching of agriculture  in the High and Normal schools"of lhe Province  was* passed unanimously by lhc Central Farmers'  Institute. It is held by advanced educationists  lhal three results of educational clforl should be  knowledge, culture and power. II" correct, it is  submitted that agriculture, including 'horticulture, arboriculture, apiculture, etc., provides a  wide scope in these lines without any special emphasis on 'culture.' The prevailing opinion of  bolh country and city people seems to be that the  benefit of the research and extension work of  the university, as well as the direct teaching,  should be extended lo those interested in thc  basic industry of our Province and Dominion  and lhat the function of the university is to. do  its share in promoting thc best interests of thc  farm, the forest, thc fisheries, the factories and  the mines, of trades and professions, of merchandise and transportation, and" of whatever else  lends to the uplift and progress of our people,  individulaly and collectively."  "NOT WORTH A PLUGGED NICKEL"  Some men have strange ideas of what is required- of them in courts of justice���������������������������or courts  where an effort is being made lo give justice.  The other day, when the appeal case of Lawes vs.  lhe  City  of  Enderby   was  being  heard  before  Judge Swanson, an elTort was made by. thc appellant's  attorney  to-make it  appear  that  the  property of the appellant assessed al $30 and $35  and $40 an acre was not worth $5.an acre, .and  one witness said upon oath that the-whole Lawes  property was not   worth a plugged nickel, and  that he would nol lake it as a gift.     All of which  might have "sounded good at the lime, but could  have no influence wilh' thc court, and certainly  nol with people who know thc property in-question.   While not. disposed to go into the merits of  the appeal, we feel that in fairness to Enderby it  might bc well lo point ouT a lew facts .which  have been overlooked in connection with, this excellent hill property.   Before doing so wc would,  draw attention to lhc fact that for thc whole of  Canada thc average value of farm land held for  agricultural purposes, whether improved or unimproved, and including thc value of the. dwelling houses, barns, stables and other farm buildings, is returned by the government as $38.90 per  acre.   By provinces the averages per acre range  from $22.48 in New Brunswick, lo about $125 in  British   Columbia.      In   British   Columbia   the  higher avcrageVs, due  to orcharding and  fruit  growing, the very branch of the farming industry which this hill property is best adapted to.  So, in view of this fact, it is not reasonable lo accuse.lhc cily of Enderby of placing an excessive  value on this property, or other properties similarly situated.   IL was also slated under oath thai  there was no wagon road on thc properly and  thai it was impossible to build one to thc hilltop  lhat could be travelled.   At the same time there  were men in the room who had hauled a ton load  over the existing 7-pcr-ccnt road to the hilltop  with a single team.   We question thc tactics of  knocking a property in order to beat thc assessment.   The hill properties of thc Okanagan dis-  Trit:l7^and^j)arlicularh~tliose^in^and-aboutVI">i.u  derby may not, it is true, present any particularly inviting inducement to what wc know as the  prairie farmer.   Men of lhis type, accustomed as  they are"to vast expanses of level counlry, would  starve lo death on these hill lands.   But all agricullural" enterprises do not necessarily start and  end with the growing of wheat.    The intensive  farmer can   find  ample  ground  wilhin  a  very  small area on which to raise a very lucrative harvest.    Mr. Lawes himself, on his hill property,  has picked and marketed from two-thirds of an  acre of strawberries, $800 worlh of this delicious  fruit in a single season.   And there is room for  many small-acrage homes*on  his hill properly  where lhe natural condilions are as favorable for  this and similar enterprises.   These hills are sub-  irrigaled, and arc ideal for poultry raising and  fruit and  vegetable  growing.    It is  unfair for  men who do not know the land and speak from  no knowledge of past conditions, to be allowed lo  testify, even in an. appeal courl, as to the worth-  lessncss of a property that has proved, and stands  ready lo further prove, its productive possibilities  as an asset to the owner and tlie community.  We hear a great deal about assessing farm  properly wilhin lhe cily on a basis of its actual  productive value. But much of this argument is  not worth- considering. The proposition of a  ''farm wilhin a cily" is on its face an impossibility. We might talk aboul such a thing, but wc  know it cannot be. There was a time when all  lhis property could have been cut up into small  holdings and disposed of readily at $50 or $100  an acre. Bul when this was possible, we were  thinking of $200 and $300 an acre, and would not  consider anything less. Today, of course, one  cannot sell property at any price. This is.true of  olher localities as well as of lhis district. But  this condition will not obtain always, and wc  must make lhe most of what we have at thc  present lime and keep our land values normal.  ~A shipment of Seeds just arrived.

It is the duly of every butter maker to comply with the law in this matter.

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.

For political, religious and social reasons, it was  considered necesary, some years ago, to confine  the public press within certain well-defined lines,  and it was the duty of the censorship to see that  these bounds were strictly adhered to.   But by  degrees the people awakened to the fact that they  were simply lhc dupes in the hands of the men  who ruled them, and the public press was as  powerless as they to expose the game.    They  grew restive under thc press censorship, and the  demand for untrammcled expression in the public newspapers made short work of the censorship when thc people became alive to the issue.  Wc see now much thc same thing going on in  connection with the censorship and the moving  picture productions.   In the past few years the  movies have pushed their way into the very heart  of community life.   They are fast reaching into  our social, religious and political fabric.   What  the newspapers have grown.to be the. movies are  aspiring to be.   Politicians have learned to fear  the newspapers.   Moving picture men are asking  if it will be necessary to make them fear the  movies.   It will.   The motion picture has all the  powers of publication.   They can lampoon, they  can cartoon, they can editorialize and can expose.  The motion picture is only another form of publication.   Wc "read" the pictures as we read the  papers.    To have these pictures censored is on  a par with having a government "pet" sitting as  censor over the newspapers of the various provinces.   "Passed by thc Board of Censors," will  one day, and not far distant, be taken as an insult  by a thinking people.   As well have them printed  below the heading of the public press.   Who constitute this "Board of Censors?"   In the province  of British Columbia, one man: no doubt a very'  estimable individual, but just an ordinary man,  holding a  public office.    And yet he has  the  power to say what thc public shall read through  the movies!   In other provinces thc board consists, of three individuals.    But the end' is the  same.    Picturized thought is censored, and all  the public is permitted to.see must conform to  the religious, social and political views of thc  political "pets" who happen to be on the "Board  of Censors."  - But,_ it is argued, we must have some means  by which the "motion pictures can be kept "clean,  aiid ^within the bounds of social, religious and  political requirements." All of which is true.  But tlie same used to, be said of the public.press.  Arc we not, as individuals and collectively, better  capable of judging what is best for us to sec and  read than the "Board of Censors" can tell us?  How long would a,newspaper last in any community if it permitted ite columns to be given  over to corrupting influences? And how long  would any picture house run if it put upon the  screen scenes having a corrupting influence?  MARKED REVIVAL OF BUSINESS  "There is a marked revival of business all over  the East and in the prairies, and I am glad to see  signs of an improvement in British Columbia.  I believe that tlie lumber business is only restricted by the transportation facilities by water and  rail." This was the optimistic statement made  by Mr. George Bury, vice-president in charge of  all lines of the C.P.R., to the Vancouver Province  a few days ago. "The pressing need now," hc  continued, "is more labor." It is imperative, he  pointed out, that more help be available to do thc  necessary plowing, put in the crops and to harvest them next year.  Thc vice-president stated that he understood  the Dominion Government was making every  effort to secure settlers and labor from the United  States and he hoped that the effort would meet  with success. The company has very low rates  for farm laborers in force now from the border.  He stated that it was needless to point out that for  the welfare of the Dominion of Canada and thc  British Empire our production should be kept up  and increased and that at the present time this  was simply a question of labor. . Asked if low  rates would be made for laborers from British  Columbia to the prairies this spring and fall, he  stated that the company would make low rates  the same as last year providing there is any surplus labor available in British Columbia.  How about that good old-fashioned celebration  which is due to be held at Enderby May 24th, this  year?  Give Your Home Printer a  Chance at Your���������������������������  EXTENDING THE MILITARY AGE  A miracle has been defined as a physical event  described by those to whom it was related by  men who did not see it, so if you are waiting for  a miracle to happen to alter general conditions  -just switch oh the button of individual, effort  and forget..the miracle part of it���������������������������it wonT be*  needed.  The London papers say that an order extending the military age limit for both single and  married men to 45 years is to'be issued this week.  For the present the enlistment of men over the  age of 40 will be voluntary. All the newspapers  declare that a general compulsion bill extending  the application of thc present law, to married  men is being carefully considered by. the authorities. The press association says the war  office officials believe that general compulsion is  essential. Most of thp morning papers support  such a measure, but the Daily News asks why  the war office wants such a big army in England.  "This compulsion issue," it says, "is being  pushed to some extent by the military authorities. Apparently, the. policy of the war office is  to keep a very large army in England for use in  case of an invasion. This docs not .indicate that  robust faith in our navy which is, a common  possession outside the.war office.",,V ....   ... ,.  * *  The sordid business man is like the. sordid  priest���������������������������he doesn't get beyond the cash register.  mm^^m^mmm^^m^^em^^m^^mmr^^m^^^^^m  LABOR TROUBLES ON THE CLYDE  Loose Leaf Billheads  Letterheads  Statements  Booklets  Counter Check Books  Stock Certificates  Window.

"We have had a very severe winter,  Mr. Johnson," said thc attorney in the appeal  case the other day, "and many of those trees on  tbe property assessed by you  may have been  killed!"   "Yes," replied the assessor, "but I am  not responsible for that."   It illustrates the point.  The Provincial Government has been blamed for  all kinds of things. It is blamed if it spends  public moneyson improvements and it is blamed  if it doesn't.   It is blamed for the weather and it  is blamed for the war.   It is blamed for saying it  will grant prohibition and it is blamed if it won't.  Figures, while not particularly diverting to thc  mind of the layman, yet prove very-powerful  arguments in support of a cause,, and Hon. Thos.  Taylor, minister of public works and provincial  secretary, presented some in the House at Victoria a day or two ago.   He produced records to  show the amounts of money which had' been  spent by the government on public works within  the past six years, arguing meantime that to provide such improvements out of direct taxation  upon a small population in mountainous British  'Columbia would have been impossible.   Hence,  to give the people roads and schools and bridges,  the government had to fall back upon the natural  resources of the country for revenue purposes.  In the past six years, up to September, 1915, the  Province spent $17,450,811 on roads and trails,  said Mr. Taylor.   It had standardized or rebuilt  14,000 miles of roads and 6000 miles of trails  within  that  tinie.    It  expended  $2,761,451   in  schools and $7,620,340 on other public buildings.  It spent $4,720,088 on bridges and wharves, making a total of $32,553,000.  When we work to become and not acquire we  have found the secret of life.  In addition to thc labor troubles among thc  South Wales coal miners, which the Government has just arranged to submit to arbitration,  there are indications, a London dispatch says, of  serious developments among the labor men in  the Clyde district and at Liverpool. The central!  committee of the Clyde trades unions, after considering the government's refusal to support  their demand for an increase in wages, have issued a manifesto declaring that thc cost of living  has increased 45 per cent, while wages have increased at an average of only 10 per cent. The  Clyde unions will hold mass meetings March  31st to consider what steps shall.be taken. At  Liverpool the Carters'Union ...has. served _no_tice  that the men will cease work unless wages are  raised, and it is feared thc entire port will bc involved if thc demands of the men are not conceded.

W. Tcidman of Savannah, Georgia, tells thc following  about the. old-Mine Georgia editor  who was usually mayor, .justice of  the peace and real estate agent as  well. Upon one occasion one of  these editors was busy writing an  editorial on thc tarifl" when ;. young  couple came in lo be mar-icd.  "Without looking up, without once  slackening his pen, the edilor said:  "Time's money.    Want her?"  "Yes," said the youth.  "Want him?" the edilor nodded  towards the girl.  "Yes," she replied.  "Man and wife," pronounced the  editor, his pen still writing rapidly-  "One dollar. Bring u load of wood  for it; one-third pine, balance oak."  When you plant your garden be  sure of your seed. There is a  vast difference in the germinating qualities of garden seeds���������������������������  which accounts very largely for  the vast difference in gardens to  . be seen every season. We carry  a full stock of the following long  established reliable seed houses:  RENNIE'S MCKENZIE'S  STEEL-BRIGGS'  and D. M. FERRY'S  "YOU LIE !"  In the street of Life, walking in  the darkness of the shadow, hungry  old Satan was out hunting with his  dogs, the little imps of human  weakness. A man came walking  down the street. Satan said lo thc  little imp, with, a bitter face: "Go  get him for me."  Quickly the imp crossed the  street, silently and lightly hopped  to the man's shoulder. In his ear  he whispered, "You arc discouraged."  "No," said thc man, "I am not  discouraged."  "You are discouraged.'  Thc man replied this time: "I  do not think I am."  Louder and more decidedly thc  little imp said: "I tell you, you are  discouraged."  The man dropped his head and  replied: "Well, I suppose I am."  The imp, hopping back to Satan,  said proudly: "I've got him; he is  discouraged."  Another man passed. Again old  Satan said:  "Get him  for me."  The  proud  little demon  of dis  couragement   repeated   his   tactics.  The first lime he said, "You are discouraged,"   lhe   man    replied  emphatically, "NO I "  The second time llie i-uin replied : "I tell you I am not discouraged !"  The. third time the man said: "1  am not discouraged!    You lie!"  The man walked down the ilrect.  his head up; going lowar.l the  light."  The imp of discouragement returned lo his master crestfallen.  "I couldn't get him. Three times i  told him he was discouraged. The  third lime he called mc a liar, and  that discouraged   mi'."

PEDIGREED  BULLS  On April oth there will be .offered  for sale at Calgary, under thc auspices of thc Dominion Government,  a number of pedigreed bulls of all  breeds. Many cattlemen of the  Okanagan are taking advantage of  the opportunity, and will secure  bulls for tnc herds in their district.  We understand three or four animals arc being brought into, Armstrong by local dairymen. If any  .number, of farmers in the various  parts of the Enderby district will  get together and can decide upon  the breed of bull required, they  have thc opportunity now to. get an  animal of the highest pedigree at  a comparatively low figure. And  it will not bc necessary even for  them to send a buyer to Calgary.  They can write to Dr. Rutherford,  Calgary, telling him their requirements and what they are prepared  lo pay for an animal, and he will  do' thc buying for them. Dr.  Rutherford i.s handling the sale for  the Dominion  Government.  LOWERY'S DEDUCTIONS ^  The merchant who does not advertise is helping to kill his town,  and building up rival towns.

CRANE,  Proprietor  FRESH  FISH  EVERY   THURSDAY  GEO. R. SHARPE  WHOLESALE - RETAIL BUTCHER  Some time ago Magistrate Hallett  and Editor Lowery, of Greenwood  had some difference of opinion as  to what each thought of the other.  It  went on   for sonic days, when,  finally,   there   was   an   altercation.  Neither Magistrate  Hnllctt  nor the  editor of Greenwood's family journal, are as young us they used to  be, and the only damage thnt could  result   from    such    an   altercation  would   he   injured   feelings   and   a  ripple in Ihe ozone.   When llic^po-  lh'o arrived upon lhe scene we are  informed that both the editor and  magistrate  were upon  lhe ground,  burning hard and glaring some, but  otherwise taking things easy.    But  the  trouble  didn't  end   there.    Jn  the   Ledge,    Editor    Lowery   said  some   uncomplimentary   things   of  Magistrate Hallett, and now ihe latter  has   issued   a   writ   asking  unstated  damages against the editor.  In tlie last issue of thc Ledge it is  staled   that  "mosl  of   the   fighting  seems lo he in France.   There has  been none in Greenwood for some  time," so it would seem lhat the police magistrate and editor arc to try  lo settle in court what they failed  to  settle  by   word   of  mouth   and  "fright fulness."
