O'Farrell, one of thc most  livid and free writers of the. Dominion, strong  protest is made to the Dominion (iovernmcnl's.  ���������������������������fiscal proposals covering lhe question of taxation  for war purposes. In this memorandum Mr.  O'Farrell attempts lo show how lhe greal Standard Oil trust, the Guggenheim copper trust and  llie Inlernalional nickel trust, all New York corporations headed largely by German financiers,  have reached into Canada and are today strangling Canadian enterprises of a similar nature.  He allempts lo show lhal not only are these foreign-owned .corporations heing allowed lo do this,  hut Ihey have, he claims, so manipulated legislation as ley make themselves exempl from 'taxation .while. ��������������������������� throwing The/burden, ol' the war lax  upon Canadian importers and Canadian business  enterprises made dependent upon Ihem.  Mr.  O'Farrell  characterizes as  iniquitous  the  proposals ol* the government to exempt from taxation  all  profits  realized   from  agricullural activities; also the exemption ol* incomes ol* slock  brokers,   medical  practitioners  and  corporation  attorneys, while the struggling mercantile firm  and Ihe manufacturing enterprises and lhc miner  must contribute 2o per cent of their legitimate  profits above 7 per cent on the capital invested.  He then strikes,hard al the Standard Oil trust,  which he characterizes as the "most unscrupulous and lhe most colossal scheme of piracy and  plunder  organized  since  man's  advent  on   this  globe.    It has made vicious, venenious and implacable war on every other company lhat entered the business against il.    Again and again  before congress and before legislative bodies, and  in the higher courts of the Uniled Slates it has  been convicted ol" perjury, bribery and arson,"  and, he claims, "there is not a crime in the calendar that il.has nol committed or i.s not ready lo  com ni i I Lo achieve ils ends."     He then declares  lhal the Standard Oil has erected oil refineries at  every strategic point  from  Victoria  lo  Halifax,  where llie trust's crude oil, which is allowed to  enter Canada duty free, is refined and made into  illuminaling  oil,  gasoline,  elc.    Thus  does  the  trust escape lhe 25 per cent duly.  The writer also protests against the policy of  the Dominion in failing to push through ils banking, scheme proposed al lhc outset of lhe war.  "A great scheme of banking,*' he says, "and currency reform would make Canada independent  of London and New York money markets,  president.

Loans to Farmers Under tne New
Agricultural Credits Act Now Ready
The announcement of the proposal of the Provincial Government to proceed without delay in
the operation of the machinery
constituted under thc Agricultural
Credits legislation for lending
money to farmers has resulted in a
Hood of telegrams and letters to
the agricullural and finance departments of the government, asking for information with regard to
the terms tinder which cheap
money may be obtained.
The    Agricultural    Credits    Act,
passed  last year, came into effect
yesterday,  Wednesday, April 20th.
The first meeting of the newly constituted board, comprising the provisional superintendent, Hon. William     Manson,     Messrs.     William
Bridge of Richmond, and William
Duncan ' of   Comox,   with   Deputy
Minister Goepel of the finance department, took place on that day.
Fanners of the Province hailed
with   satisfaction   the   recent   announcement of the successful sale
of the first million  dollars' worlh
of agricultural credits bonds, and
many messages of congratulations
were received by Premier .Bowser.
The   statement   given   out   by   the
Premier on Thursday last to the effect that the proceeds of the first
sale  would  probably  be  available
in  about ten days or two weeks'
time, has also been received favorably.    The  fact  that  the  farmers
will be able to obtain loans within
the next few weeks from this million-dollar sale, and may also look
forward  to   finding   more  money
from the.sale of another two million or two and a half million dollars' worth of bonds for farm loan
purposes, will  do much, it is expected,   to   stimulate   the   agricultural industry in the Province during the present year. .
, Mr. Alexander Liicas, member of
Yale, who sat on the Royal Commission on Agriculture two years
ago, has prepared a brief review
of the principal   provisions of the
Agricultural Credits Act for the information of- intending borrowers,
. who' .may expect shortly to apply
to   the. newly-created   board   for
loans on their farm property.   In
this summary Mr. Lucas says:
"As a result of-the investigations
and report of the Royal Commission on Agriculture, the . Govern-
y.m'ent during thc 1915 session introduced, and passed the bill providing for thc "establishment, of the
agricultural credits .commission,
consisting of a'superintendent and
two directors appointed sby., the
���������.lieutenant-governor in 'council���������
the deputy minister of finance and
the. deputy minister of agriculture
being ex-oflicio .directors���������thus
forming a board of five members.
"The two directors appointed by
the lieutenant-governor must be
men who have Deen engaged in
farming in this Province. * -The Act
authorizes the commission to borrow up to $15,000,000, as and when
the sum is required, and to loan to
those engaged in farming in this
Province. .All money borrowed by
the commission must be negotiated
through the minister of finance,
acting for ancl on behalf of, the
commission. The due payment of
all securities, both as to principal
and interest, issued by the commission ancl sold through the department, of finance, shall be unconditionally guaranteed by the
Crown in the right of the Province.
Purpose  of Loans
a department of appraisal and valuation, and may from time to time
make rules and regulations, not inconsistent with the Act, relating to
such matters as thc respective
duties of the employees of the
commission, thc fees payable by
borrowers under the provisions of
the Act, the conditions that may
be imposed in regard fo loans ancl
respecting the making of advances
in installments corresponding to
the progress of the work of improvements, the rules of good husbandry, etc., ancl all such rules and
regulations, when confirmed by
order in council, and when published in the 13. C. Gazette, shall
have the same force as if they were
embodied in the Act.
"The commission may accept as
security for loans, first mortgages
upon agricultural land in British
Columbia free from all incumbrances other lhan interests vested
in the Crown. No loan will -be accepted for a less amount than $250,
or for a greater amount than $10,-
000, ancl no loan will be accepted
for an amount exceeding 60 per
cent of the appraised value of the
land offered as security, calculated
on the basis of value and productiveness when the improvements in
respect of which the loan is required shall have been effected.
The commission my advance by
proportionate instalments as the
work progresses.
"Loans may be made for the following purposes:
"(a) The acquiring of land for
agricultural purposes ancl the satisfaction of incumberances on land
used for such purposes;
(b) The clearing, draining,
dvkeing, or irrigation works;
(C) The erection of farm buildings;
(d) The purchase of live stock,
machinery, fertilizers, etc..
(e) Discharging liabilities incurred for the improvement ancl
development of land used for agricullural purposes and any purpose
that, in the judgment of the commission, i.s calculated Mo increase
land productiveness, and to associations organized under the Agricultural Associations Act, with thc
approval of thc lieutenant-governor in council.
"Before granting 'any loan the
commission shall ascertain that the
loan is justified on the following
"(a) The value of the security
offered, estimated on. the basis of
agricultural  productiveness;
"(b) The desirability of the proposed loan for any of thc purposes
described above;
"(c) Thc ability of the borrower
to make a fair living for himself
and his family from the farming
of his land when improved as proposed by means of thc loan applied
for, and after having paid inleresl
ancl amortization charges;
"(d) That   thc   granting  of  the
proposed loan for the specified
purpose will, in the opinion of the
commission, be of economic benefit to the borrower.
Long and Short Loans
All applications for loans must
be made on blank * application
forms supplied by the commission.
Commission shall make lojig-clate
loans, short-date loans and'single-
season loans. A long-date loan as
authorized shall bc repaid to the
commission with interest al either
3(5% ycars, or 20 ycars. The rate
of interest shall not exceed 1 per
cent more than the interest paid by
Ihe  commission  on   thc  bonds  i.s

The Hudson's Bay Company
Beg to announce a
Five Days' Anniversary Sale
Commencing- Saturday
On the SLhd of May* 1916, the Hudson's Bay Company reaches
another milestone in its long and eventful journey.    On that day,
two hundred and forty-six years ago, theyjneient and Honorable
Company came into being. .For two hundred and forty-six years
it has marched with firm and unfaltering step in the van of progress, carrying the flag from Coast to Coast, and from the Great
Lakes to the frozen fastnesses of the Arctic.
This five days' Anniversary Sale offers 246 Bargains. Just so many years,
just so many individual snaps. Each Buyer will bring forth his best, each
Department will show conclusively the Company's Buying Power and demonstrate the truth of the adage that "OLD FRIENDS" are "BEST FRIENDS."
April 21 to Nay 4th���������Five Days of Coin Opportunity
Anniversary Price List sent on
Hudson's Bay Co.
sued to secure the funds. The combined charge of interest and principal shall be payable half-yearly,
each instalment being equal.
"The commission may make
short-date loans not exceeding
$2,000 to an individual, or $10,000
to an association, for a period to
he determined in each case in the
discretion of thc commission not
less than three ycars, ancl not to
exceed ten years. Short-date loans
may be made on such terms as to
repayment as the commission may
deem fit, the interest being the
same as on long-dale loans.
"The commission may make
single-season loans, repayable in
twelve months from the date of application. ��������� Such loans shall be secured by mortgage ancl promissory note. Such loans shall not ex-/
cccd $2,000 to any one person or
$10,000 to any association, ancl
may he repaid at any time, ancl additional loans may be secured under the provisions of the Act.
"The money borrowed may be
repaid to the commission in full or
in part on any interest-due date, in
sums of $25 or a multiple of $25,
in reduction of the mortgage debt,
and from that.date interest shall
cease on the amount so paid.
"The   principle   underlying   the
Act   is   wholly   constructive,   the
loans  being  calculated   to   supplement  the  industry  ancl  ability, of
the   farmer,   and,   while  the  provisions of the, Act apply  directly
to those already, on the land and
operating* farms,  it  also > provides
facilities for the beginner.   A man   '
without  capital, who  is  able and
willing to  work,  may  start  on  a
raw'farm and receive advances as
his work' of making a  farm progresses!    In, short, the Agricultural
Credits Commission of British Columbia is a friendly loaning company, with $15,000,000 available as
needed,   ancl   with   the   credit   of
British Columbia behind it in order
to obtain" further credit- when, necessary. . It  was  devised   for  the
sole purpose of financing those engaged in thc agricultural industry, ���������
just as our present banking system
was  devised  to  finance  those  en-"
gaged in ijthe mercantile and manu- <
facturing industries.   It is able and
anxious  to  finance  every  agricultural producer in British Cloumbia
who   is   willing   to   help   himself,
and not-only help him. to*'make a   ���������
living for himself and his family,
but-enable him 'to so increase, the --
revenue.of hisfarin that he will be,,
able tp adopt a standard of living-
equal to that, enjoyed''4)y those eh- \"

Tlie Opera House is  well palronizeci each week-end.  Chapter 13 will be thrown on thc  screen this week; "Til this chapter  Vivian learns ol" Arthur's fortune.  She plans-a conquest. It is established that Esther is really the  rightful owner of thc diamond, and  Blair sets, his cap lo marry her in  order to recover it. Esther is  found at'.Hagar's bedside and she  i.s induced to return to the .Randolph home. A bootblack, who is  really a detective, presents Esther  with' money sent by Arthur to be  used when necessary. ���������������������������Esther instructs Quabba. to take the. money  and go west to seek Arthur. As he  crosses a street Quabba is struck by  a   street   car   and   painfully   hurt.  Saturday Afternoon Favored  On the question of the weekly  half-holiday, there can he no argument. On the question of the clay,  however, arguments might be advanced according to the angle of  vision. Speaking from the outside,  it would seem there i.s both "rhyme  and reason" in the Saturday half-  holidav, as thc weekday rest period  is then so fixed lhat it is possible to  provide a "week-end" for the  clerks which can be used to greater  advantage than could a half day in  Ihe middle of the week or than  was possible lo arrange for Sunday  onlv, taking the late Saturday night  into   account.���������������������������Federalionist.

A garden 60x100 feet should produce suflicicnl vegetables for a  family of ten persons and leave a  surplus for storage for winter.  Cultivated by hand, it will occupy  most of the spare lime of a cily  dweller. A man cannot bc a motor  car or baseball enthusiast ancl at  the same time make a success of a  garden of this size. However,  even smaller plots, if intelligently  handled, may bc made to yield an  astonishing quantity of* good crisp  vegetables, which have not lost  their health-preserving value in the  store window. Where lhe space  available is small, crops should bc  selected that take bul little ground  and give quick returns. Potatoes,  cabbage, corn,- egg-plant, peppers,  had better be dispensed with, and  the space devoted lo such things as  peas, beans, spinach, lettuce, carrots, beets, tomatoes and onions.  Tomatoes  should be  stake-trained.  The cutivalion of vegetables is  easy and agreeable, and in the days  ���������������������������when meat, eggs,.';milk and other  staple articles are tending steadily  to increase .in . price,'a wider use  of vegetable foods will reduce living expenses and  promote health.  The best time to do garden work  is earlv in the morning and in the  evening; so that it is well to encourage thc healthful habit of early  retiring and early rising. If the'  work is done for thc love of it  rather lhan from necessity, these  hours will be the most agreeable  of the day.   Tobacco Fund Dance  The attendance was not as large  as might have been, considering the  good cause in which the dance  was given, but there could not have  been' a more enjoyable occasion  than the ball given Easter Monday  evening in the Opera House by the  ladies of the Enderby Tobacco  Fund. The music by the Enderby  orchestra was . excellent and rc-  frcshnienls the very best. There  were a number of visitors from  Grindrod, Mara and neighboring  points, and the floor was comfort ablv filled. After paying all  expenses the ladies will realize  $7 or ������������������8 for the fund.  The ladies of the Tobacco Fund  have sent several parcels, of comforts to the boys in the trenches,  ancl are in receipt of letters from  the bovs which speak their deep  feeling' of appreciation.

MATERNITY NURSING.   Mrs.West,  Enderby. m4-tf;  OLD  FAVORITES  'Jw'o hundred and forty-six years  ago, when Prince Rupert and his  business associates, of London,  Eng., organized tlie Hudson's Bay  Company, the object Ihen was lo  deal in furs with the North American Indians. The addition of Canada lo lhe British dominions  opened the way for adventures  from the Great Lakes, and the success of these adventurers led lo thc  formation in 1783 of the Northwest  Fur Company of Montreal, between  whose agents and those of Hudson's  Bay Company there were many  struggles, often sanguinary in character. The Iwo rivals joined  forces in 1821, and in 1838 the  Hudson's Bay Company obtained a  practical monopoly of the region  thev explored, but it was abolished  in 1859. Finally their territory and  other rights were bought out by  Canada for .$1,500.000. and every  twentieth section of land in the  fertile bell was allotted them. The  Company still continues its fur  trading stations, but in addition it  has established stores in every central point in the Dominion which  have in recent years developed into modern emporiums. Next week  at thc Vernon branch of this great  company they will- celebrate the  246th anniversary of its birth, and  thc celebration will take on the  form of bargains" in 246 lines of  goods carried by  them.  T RES PA SSING   ON  RA IL WA YS  Despite all the warnings that  have been issued lo lhe public  'against trespassing, a spirit of  marked indifference appears lo  prevail amongst the great majority,  resulting in attendant injury and  loss of life. In this connection,  during the seven months from Aug.  1st, 1915, to Feb. 1st, 1916, there  were 22 people killed ancl 24 injured on western lines, all of  whom were trespassers. Until  thc public comes lo realize thc serious nature oi the situation, this appalling loss of nfe will continue,  ancl the companies realize that  greater publicity should be given to  it. The C.P.R. has gone to enormous expense in its 'safety first"  campaign and other movements for  the preservation of human life, but  still the general public almost entirely ianores the provisions that  are 'made along the line for its  safety.        ��������������������������� "  If a few verv early potatoes are  desired thc seed should be placed  in the light to start the dormant  eves.
