Folkard tells The Press that  Station Agent Burnham may know  a lol about the mosquitoes at Sicamous in his lime, but his experience  antedates lhat of Mr. Burnham some  years. He says 29 years ago they  used lo run a yard engine along the  track in order to make way through  the mosquitoes for the express  train. '*  Mr. A. R. Rogers, of the Okanagan  Saw Mills,,visited his property here  last week, and inspected the company's timber limits on thc King  Fisher. This is one of the best limits.of the company. Logging-will  be started there this year. It is estimated that between sixty and  ninety' million feet of logs will be  taken from this limit, some.of-it the  finest white'pine standing in the  interior of the Province.  Some excitement was occasioned  on ,lhe streets of Enderby Sunday  wherV-sonie soldiers drove .into  town in a' stolen car from Vernon.  The local police had been notified,  and Constable Patton endeavored to  stop the car at the point of his revolver,, but the driver shot by him  at full speed. The constable fired  six shots aUthe 'wheels in an effort  to puncture the tires, but failed.  The motor" car was seen at the  Fortune crossing by thc train crew  on the northbound, where the joyriders had left it and taken the railway track in the direction of*Vernon. The military police were notified by Constable Bailey and were  on the look-out for the auto drivers  and captured them as they walked  into camp.  LOOKING FOR BUGS  Mr. Tom Wilson, F. R. H. S., Inspector of Indian Orchards, and Mr.  Reginald C Treherne, of thc Divi-  sion _of, Entomology, Departm ent _of_  Agriculture, Ottawa, were ilTEhderby Wednesday morning, accompanied by Major Megraw, Inspector  of Indian Reserves. Mr. Wilson and  Major Megraw went to the Salmon  River to inspect the Indian orchards there. Mr. Treherne left for  Penticton where he is to address the  convention of horticulturists convening there this week.  Speaking on the subject of fruit  .tre"e_pcsts:aiuLthcldbstacles:ienc.o.un'������������������  tered by the fruit growers of this  Province, Mr. Treherne said he was  sure thc troubles of thc fruit men  here were no greater than arc met  with elsewhere, as to orchard and  fruit pests. In fact, he said, there  were many pests and fungus diseases in other fruit-growing -districts which have not been encountered here. The few fruit-growing  troubles we have here, he said, were  of thc ordinary type, well known,  and  not diflicult to guard  against.  These gentlemen spoke wilh regret at seeing so many orchards  where the trees were seriously injured by the winter cold, bolh in  the vicinity of Armstrong and Enderby and also farther south, but  it was their belief that what now  looked like a disaster would prove  a benefit lo lhe lowland farmer, for  it would .induce--him to keep his  fruit .orchard down to what he  could nicely handle and devote the  larger part of his lowland to raising  feed for live slock fed on the place.  Intense interest was shown in thc  "Diamond from the Sky" films last  Saturday evening bv a large crowd  at thc Opera House. Thc chapters  of last week and this are closely interwoven in the working out of a  new phase in this dramatic maslcr-  piecc.  PREMIER BOWSER HERE  Have you tried those delicious  new white chocolates recently put  in stock at Joe's ?  Premier Bowser and party managed to spend a short time in Enderby last Friday evening on their  way south. The city arranged to  give them a welcome, ancl thc business people generally turned oul to  greet them at the City Hall on their  arrival, shortly before 8 o'clock.  Mayor Dill gave a few^ words of  welcome lo the Premier, who replied briefly. His trip this time, he  said, was not political. In the ycars  he had held ollice under Premier  McBride, his time had been almost entirely devoted to hard work  in his ofliccs al Victoria. He had  been unable to get about the Province and meet the people. Now  that he had taken up the oflice of  Premier where laid down by the  Hon. Richard McBride, he found it  necessary to get about and see the  people, "and note the country's  requirements. This was his present  mission. In about a month's time  hc would return lo thc Okanagan on  a campaign four,-when it was his  intention- to address the people, of  Enderby "district on the political  issues of thc day.      *        ���������������������������  Premier Bowser said this was not  his first-visit, lo Enderby, as many  believed.    Some years ago he paid  an oflicial visit here'as Grand'Mas-"  ler of the Masons.    On his present  lrip,Viowcver, he noted/marvelous  changes 'in thc development of the  farming -portions-._f-'lh_'~distriet.  This, he said, was particularly encouraging, ancl but mkvorcd what  he had s"een in thc various parts of  thc Province visited by him.    The  fuller' development of our agricultural industry was, to,his mind, the  most ;important undertaking this or  any  other  government  could   promote.   Three years ago, he said, the  total value of agricultural products  imported into the Province reached  $21,000,00.0.     Last   vear   this   had  been   reduced   to   $16,000,000���������������������������five  millions less than three years ago.  But even  this amount was far too  great, when it is remembered that  nearly every dollar of this vast sum  co'ulcf be kept at home if the produce was raised here.  He said hc was glad to note, in  all parts of thc Province, that the  people' had given up thc habit of  swapping real estate and were settling down to the real work of development and practical farming.  Tlii s*Tbe""s"a idrw airth e^rrsressentia I7  for all other industries now developing depend upon the ample production of agricullural products.  The mining, fishing, lumber, shipbuilding and all commercial industries arc dependent first upon the  farmer for the food essentials, and  if these are not produced at home  they must bc imported from other  countries, which means a loss to  eyeryyresident 01_tlle Pro v|nce,yno  "matte VwhafTiis or her occupation.  At the conclusion of his visit here  Mr.--Bowser was motored to Armstrong. He was accompanied by  Hon.AVm. Manson, minister of public works, andJlon. Price Ellison.  COMFORTS FOR THE BOYS  Mrs. E. Gray informs The Press  that the ladies of lhc Enderby Tobacco Fund have now socks for all  the Enderby boys at the front, and  the ladies desire to make up packages of comforts for each. In order  to do so they would like to have  friends put in' a quarter, or a half,  or a whole, so they can purchase  cigarettes, etc., lo put into each  package. Mrs. Andrew Glen has  sent in $1.00.' There is an opportunity for all to add their bit to  make the packages convey lo the  bovs in the trenches some feeling of  encouragement and cheer direct  "from the friends at home." See  Mrs. Gray, or send in your "bit" or  "bits."   WORKING FOR SOMETHING  Country bovs do not kick on hard  work and plenty of it if Ihey have  something lo work for. Some  fathers do not seem to realize this  fact. All rathers have a plenty or  things spurring them on and are  willing to work lo their limit six  davs in the week with little diversion  except   church   and  viewing  their crops on the seventh clay.  They are busy acquiring more  wealth to properly care for their  families. They have some objective, but the boys are likely to have  none, and under sucn circumstances  work with no enthusiasm. Work  ".'iliiout enthusiasm is drudgery.  Give thc boy some objective; see  that he is working for something.  That something may be a share in  some crop or some live :.lock, or it  may be a ball game or other sports  which he' may anticipate with  pleasure. A bov who has an object  in his work is nanny at it ancl does  it well; if he works hard day after  day just because he thinks he has  to, the' chances���������������������������are lhat he will  grow up to hate,farming. A boy is  made manly by achievement; he  cannot_achicve without a chance.���������������������������  Farmers' Review.  WHY THE ALLIES MUST WIN  Presiding at a luncheon given by  the'Pilgrims to James M.Beck, former assistant' attorney-general of  the..United' Slates, in London recently, Viscount - Bryce ' said the  Allies cannot agree' to any such  peace terms as-have"been'suggested  by" well-intentioned Americans .��������������������������� or  by .the German government. "In the  first place, we do not".think this  waiv will' be a 'drawj'". ���������������������������said^he.  "The^Allies are going.to win. The  Allies will prove to be stronger on  land than the Germans and because  we hold unshaken and unshakable  control of thc sea.  ' "Secondly, peace cannot be made  now because the German government is not prepared for it on any  terms we could accept. The German government may know they  are going to bc beaten, but the German people do not yet know it.  They are ignorant of-thc facts, ancl  their government, which has fed  them with falsehoods and held out  prospects of territorial gains, fears  lo accept terms which would.rec-'  ognize their own failure.  "Thirdly, because peace made  now on such terms as thc German  governiiTenfwoulcHaccepi^voulchbe  no permanent peace, but a- mere  truce. We are fighting for great  principles���������������������������principles vital to the  future of mankind, principles  which the German government outraged and which must at all costs  be vindicated. We do not hate the  German people; wc do not wish lo  b reak���������������������������u p.lG.ci:m a nyjinoolcstro>vVts  unity, nor inflict permanent injury  upon il. What we desire is lo exorcise an evil spirit and discredit  the military caste which delights  in war and threatens not only  Europe but all countries���������������������������America  included."  Over One Million Dollars an Hour  Brilish expenditures alone have  now reached a total of more than  $30,000,000 daily, according to a  statement made by Reginald Mc-  Kenna, chancellor of the exchequer, in the House of Commons on Monday.

Poison, for the owner, had cleaned *  up the lot and building corner of  Cliff and Belvedere streets in accordance wilh thc request from the  council, and had stated that he was  about lo remove the shack from thc  lot.  Thc resolution from the Kelowna  Board  of Trade   read   before   the  council  aUa   previous  meeting relating  to   the  mode   of  collecting  taxes under the Muncipal Statutes,  was taken from the table and a resolution   passed   endorsing the sug- .  gestion therein made.  ' Mr. G. L.

Strickland   had   complained-,  lhat  his water supply  was  inadequate and that apparently there was -  some block in the pipe.   As the pipe  to Mr. Strickland's premises, which  are outside the ci.ly limits, is a privately-owned  one, thc council  did  not feel it was wilhin its jurisdiction to have work done upon it.  A letter was received from Mr. A.  C. Skaling, solicitor for Mr. A. D.  Stroulger and Mr. 'P. II. Murphy,  staling that hc was unable lo have  a certain deed registered until a description suitable to the district registrar had been filed covering thc  right-of-wav  of   the   city's  water  .-. ������������������*���������������������������  * -,t. .?  ^5"  -.*���������������������������  r     'F* *"T 1  ���������������������������   ' 1  *   -v?|  ������������������  1* y '   r������������������ 1  >    *Vw  v^ti  *  - "*f, &\  --, ''-ff  h*  _ Vj'*  "-_p_a___3i|  1 **  ,\\ Lna  - A  M**>? *���������������������������*?.

It was decided that, as the city bad agreed to  pay all expenses necessary in order  toyloblain^ardecjlytorthe^pxpperty,  and as said deed had been in the  city's possession since 1908, the  council considered that they had no  right to incur any further expense  in the matter.  OFF FOR THE LAKE  Station Agent Burnham and family are moving to Okanagan Lake  tliis week, where they will spend a  month in one of the summer cottages filled for camping. The train  bovs.tell us lhat if you want to gel  a glimpse of solid comfort personified, elongated and long drawn out,  vou want to see "Our John" in a  bathing suit, stretched upon the  sandv beach under a sunshade with  his tbesies dangling in thc rippling  waters of the lake as the lillle  wavelets come bashfully up to kiss  the ringlets oul of Jack's tousled  locks of golden jet-black hair. John  takes no tariff troubles with him  when he goes camping. He will  leave them lhis lime in the hands of  our old friend, Al. Curric, who used  to he station agent at Salmon Arm  when that burg had a baseball team  of slivers all about his size, averaging about 200 pounds each.

THURSDAY, JULY 20, 1916  CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATES  Thc names of three prominent Okanagan men  : -will  in  all   probability  be  brought  before  lhc  Conservative convention which is to bc held at  Vernon next Monday afternoon.   These arc Mr.  Ellison, Mr. Kcary, of Armstrong, and Mr. Kidslon, of Vernon.   Mr. Ellison is the present member, and a man in whom all old-timers, especially,  have    confidence,    and    admiration    for.      Mr.  Kcarv is lhc owner of lhc McQimrric ranch, al  Lansdowne, lhc reeve of lhe Spallumcheen Municipality, and prominently connected wilh many  movements which  mean much lo lhe advancement of Armslrong and district.   Mr. Kidslon is  a prominent rancher in lhc vicinity of Vernon.  Hc was a member of lhe agricullural commission,  and has been closely associated wilh Conservative  politics, at  Vernon, some years.    Hc is also a  man of wide vision and outspoken in his ideas of  party purity.   H will bc remembered lhal he took  an  active Inleresl in  lhc campaign  launched a  year ago by Mr. Bassil Gardom against lhc callle  deal involving Mr. Ellison.  *^^rlrcsc^nicn-rirc^alVcaj)able^an(l-the-sG-lcclion-  of either would mean thai lhe Okanagan would  be well represented. Mr. Ellison's'work for the  Okanagan, as its representative in llie local house  the past nine years or more, is loo well known lo  need repetition. Prior to coming lo lhc Okanagan  a few vears ago, Mr. Keary was mayor of New  Westminster several years, and president of lhc  Provincial Fair Association of New Westminster,  : when: it ^^  .popularity. Me is also a norlb-end man, which  means, no doubt, thai he will receive strong support from north-end delegates. Mr. Kidslon is  equally experienced in public work for the Valley.  Tbe* choice ol" lhe convention, therefore, will  receive lhe unanimous support of the Conservative volcrs of llie riding. And lhis unanimous  support will be necessary if Ihe parly is lo win  at lhe polls. In view of "lhis il will be necessary  that each candidate should appear al lhe convention and address lhe delegates on a definite platform which he proposes lo carry oul il" selected  lo lead lhe party here. There should be no slone  left unluriied lo select lhe best man for lhe position. The parly musl nol he sacrificed for lhe  num. The delegates to lhe nominating convention have a greal responsibility resting upon  Ihem. The old idea lhal anyone named by thc  convention can be elecled should be exploded.  The nominee musl be a man against whom lhc  opposition can bring no charge. Personal considerations should lake Second place.  Thc contest is nol going lo be easily won. Let  the cattle deal, the exposing of which a year or  more ago brought the resignation of Mr. Ellison  from the cabinet, be forgotten if you will. Can  the forgetting of it by his friends induce the Opposition to forget it? And will the remembering  of it add votes to Mr. Ellison or prestige to the  party? These are questions that would be better  answered now than after the date of election, however embarrassing they maybe, and however much  ���������������������������we may dislike having to answer them.  PREMIER BOWSER, THE MISUNDERSTOOD  Somebody  has  said   that  "men  congratulate  themselves on lhcir position, no mailer whal it  is���������������������������the Government'is wrong, not they."   In lhc  long ago thc Pharasec thanked God he was not  like other men, and lhc 'other men' lhank God  lhcy arc nol like life Pharasec.   II" we were to believe all we have heard about Hon. W. J. Bowser,  told by his enemies���������������������������or ralher, by people who do  not, and never have taken the trouble lo, understand' him, perhaps both  lhe Pharasec and the  'other men' would lhank God they arc not like Mr  Bowser.   But it is well for us to remember that in  all ages, the world's best men have first been discovered by their enemies.   The adversary turns  on lhe searchlight, and lhc proof of excellence  lies in the ability to stand the gleam. For the past  decade. Hon. W. J. Bowser has been in the spotlight of B.  C. public.life,.-as- attorney-general,*  and, for lhe past year or thereabouts, as acting  premier, and now as premier and leader of the  Conservative party.   In these years his public life  has been a strenuous one.   He has been charged  wi Ih offences ma ny and varied, and a t all time's  the searchlight has been upon him.   Lie has accepted every charge when made the natural outcome of events as they would appear to the minds  of his accusers.   He never has shown the white  feather in the face of his political traducers.   On  lhc contrary, each seemed to act as an incentive  for him  lo" go forward on  the mission hc has  m-oven himself so well filled lo accomplish.   As  lie was traduced, he smiled, and, when lhc opportunity offered, fought back.   But at no lime has  lhe Hon. W. J. Bowser been unprepared for his  enemies, and where is lhc one who has nol learnt  10 respect him as a fighter?  In a month's lime, it is lhc Premier's intention  to visit lhis part of lhc Province on political business. Thai trip will bc as strenuous politically as  his present trip has been otherwise. And wc may  expect io hear from him Ihen much as Lo his  future intentions. In the short time he has been  Premier, Mr. Bowser has exerted a tremendous  influence in lhe way of bringing lhc business of  lhc Province down lo a purely business basis.  'Pull' and 'patronage' arc nol strong features ol  his administration.- Indeed, thc word 'efficiency'  seems lo have taken the place of bolh 'pull' and  'patronage' in his handling of lhc public business.  11 is sale, lo sav lhal, as Premier, thc attorney-  general has brought himself into closer touch  wilh lhe electors of the Province, and in so doing will bring aboul a belter understanding oi  himself by lhe electors. So busy has Mr. Bowser  been on lhc work ol" thc administration that he  has failed lo appreciate lhc feeling of lhc people  of lhc Province toward him. While his political  enemies have been industriously circulating all  kinds of stories aboul him, hc has gone quietly on  doing the work as hc saw necessary, and. keeping  a sharp eye on thc future needs of Brilish Columbia. As these measures put forward by him are  put into force the electors will then understand  thai, while his enemies have been busy endeavoring lo make evil stories slick lo him, he has been  quietly endeavoring and working lo bring aboul  a'belter condition for lhe laborer and lhc people  and industries of lhe Province. While his enemies  have been kicking and knocking, Mr. Bowser has  been working, with ihe result that instead of lhc  complaints and knocks injuring him, they have  boosted him into the highest ollice at lhc gift ol  thc people.

As lhc summer months come and go the tendency of our people���������������������������who love Nature in ��������������������������� lhe  wild���������������������������is lo spin away from every-day home and  business environment and spend a few days or  weeks in lhc open, by the side of a singing brook  in lhe forest depths, or on the shores of the shimmering lake where the loon calls and the splash  of jumping fish are the only excitement to break  thc humdrum of camp cooking. We of Enderby  are particularly "fortunate in having at our door  lhe charming Mabel Lake Valley and its placid  lake, and the deep, swirling Spallumcheen as il  skirls lhe wooded hills or Hows lazily by rich  meadows, green wilh grasses gracefully bending  in the breezes and shaded by lolly pines or  bunches of collonwoods and birches, with unpretentious bul sullicienl selllers' homes scattered  along Ihe way.

Better order some now *  Thursday, July 20,1916  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY-  </  NEED OF A NATIONAL BANK  Thc Mining Engineer and Electrical Journal  has laken up" the question of the need of the establishment of a national bank in Canada. The  people of Canada arc being aroused to the importance of lhis question, though it may be some  years before Canada can boast of a Government  at Ottawa composed of men strong enough Lo  bring the question to an issue. II used to be said  IhaUhc only obstacles standing in lhc way of lhe  parcel post in the United Slates were the express  companies established there. It is now clear in  Canada lhat the great obstacles in lhc way of a  national bank here are the chartered banks of thc  Dominion.   Speaking on the question the Mining  Journal says:  "Ottawa dispatches slate lhc Dominion Covernmenl  proposes lo Ileal a domestic war loan of $300,000,000.  With a practically idle gold reserve of over $100,000,-  000 there is no necessity for the Dominion Government  to lloal such a loan.   On lhat gold reserve the Dominion   Government   can   safely   issue   .$500,000,000   of  national   currency,   including   Ihe   present   Dominion  note issue of 8174,714,231.   What Canada is suffering  from today is the dearth of money in circulation. The  Dominion  note  issue  is al  present  entrusted   lo the  banks, and as they do not pay interest on it ancl arc  nol forced lo circulate it, the issue, which was originally devised to pul money in circulation with which lo  do the business of -the country, remains in the bank  vaults   lo  defeat  its  purpose.    The   former  value  of  lhe  Canadian   banking system   is  thereby' destroyed,  and instead of a benefit, the system, as now conducted,  has become a hindrance lo the progress of thc counlry.  If the Dominion Government would establish a National Bank of issue on the lines of thc issue department of  the Bank 'of England, it could control the money in  circulation "so  lhal il should neither be in  excess or  insullicicnl to meet lhe demands of business, and we  should have in Canada permanent prosperity instead  of lhe 'boom' pr 'burst' alterations- thai the present  banking system has brought upon the counlry.    Thc  national bank of issue could handle the entire'$500,-  000,000 issue of national currency, which would bring  back prosperity to the counlry by giving the people  .enough money in circulation with which to do their  business, and  without the necessity of saddling the  public   treasury   with   an   annual   interest   charge   of  $5,000,000 a year under the proposed syslcm of raising  thc .money.    If Canadian financiers honestly studied  lhe hislory'of.lhe Bank of Venice or the war finance  of Pitt and Napoleon, and such authorities on 'money'  as Walker, Mill, Jevons, their eyes would be opened by  -the lessons bf history." **" *-  : "V      -~.    -**     , -'  he can suffer cold, fatigue ancl wounds;, these things  he can endure if he can smoke.

THE  MAGIC  OF  GARLIC  ���������������������������PLEASES THE* BOHEMIANS  ' Thc Bohemian. (Czech) National Alliance ot  America, Canadian'branch, with'headquarters in  Winnipeg, is in receipt,of'a letter from the president of France addressed to the president of the  alliance, in Paris, acknowledging thc valor and  stamina of Bohemian soldiers lighting in thc-bal-  ������������������llc of Verdun. Thc president writes: "This blood  sacrifice for thc republic by thc best of your sons  has forever cemented thc brotherly unity of both  nations, which will fight hand in hand until the  complete victory, not far away how, from which  lhc" new' life-will bc created for all mankind."  The Winnipeg branch ollicers have also been  notified of thc recognition of thc Bohemian nation by lhc French parliament. The French government has established lhc legal standing ol  Bohemians to the French' republic by the ministerial enactments and bylaws to the French code,  sanctioned bv the board of laws. These ministerial enactments arc relative to the free residence oi  Bohcniiansin France, lo enable the Bohemian  ~v6 ltm tecrs to"! oiTTl lie "ar riyyTTltcTs la ttrfa c loriesr  and to permit' lhe business intercourse between  Frcncc and Bohemians residing in the allies' domains, also including thc special privilege in the  nature of paying rents. This rent order has been  renewed every three months and includes the Bohemians with residential righls in France. Thc  action of the French chamber of deputies is regarded as of great political importance to the Bohemian aspirations lo independence. It is thc first  act of lhe French government in which the  Bohemians are no 'more acknowledged as a  friendly nalion wilh privilege of residence only  and lhe first time the parliament has passed an  act in which the Bohemians are no more proclaimed the subjects of Austrian Hapsburgs, but  as relieved from subjugation lo Austria..  THE SOLDIER'S NEED  Onc of the mosl important medical discoveries  of the war is lhe magical properties of garlic as  an antiseptic. It has proved to be a tremendous  boon to the wounded soldiers. The discovery  was first announced in Thc Lancet by Dr. A. D.  Scrrcll Cooke and Dr. V. Gabriel, two London  medical men who introduced lhc remedy into  Paddinglon Jnfirmcry with remarkable results.  Of the hundred cases treated there not a single  failure was recorded. Most of these cases were  of people in very weak health and wilh terribly  infected wounds; and of infirm, old people who  appeared to have no chance'of recovery. Equally  gratifying results have been obtained at the fronl.  When applied to a wound the garlic stops the  infection and heals the wound in astonishingly  quick time, where other'antiseptics injure thc tissues if used al thc strength required to arrest thc  infection. Thc juice gets thc infection under control within 48 hours, even in the worst cases.  Thc medical properties of garlic were well  known in our grandmothers' days, and no garden  was considered complete tliat did not make provision for medicinal herbs, including garlic. But  the medical lore of women lias almost died out.  While travelling in France recently an army  doctor found an old peasant woman carrying a  bunch of garlic. She said she rubbed pieces of  garlic on.sores and found that it cured them.  Native apothecaries "in India affect cures by using  garlic as a plaster. Garlic is a popular article of  diet in Southern Europe, and its pungent llavor  may bc detected any day when passing^ through  thc foreign quarters of our cities. The discovery  of ils antiseptic properties has enhanced ils value.  English'.druggists now order it by thc ton where  formerly they only stocked small quantities. The  juice costs.about six cents an'ounce. Il is obtained  by crushing thc vegetable. The juice is then filtered, "diluted with three to four parts of distilled  water, and-applied ,to thc wound with a syringe.  -    THINGS TO'REMEBBR ABOUT SALT'    ���������������������������'  SECRET SOCIETIES  LANGLY WARE  (English make)  o  75he BEST the world produces in this class of goods.

ButterWrapper  ���������������������������Q:  #  The Dominion . law against thc selling of  butter without the words "Dairy Butter" or  '"'": CrcameTyiB fi 11_V' '���������������������������as Tlffcfca stfra ayijc^prrn tech  on the buller wrap, is a blessing iu disguise to the  average farmer. In lhe first place, if his Buller  wrappers are neatly printed with his name and  thc brand of the butler on thc label, the storekeeper can readily sell lhe butler at 5c a pound  more lhan he can get for buller wrapped in paper  lhal is not printed, and the buller-makcr gels thc  advantage in 5c a pound more for his butler from  lhe merchant.  -  -  II is lhe duly of every buller maker lo comply with lhc law in this mailer. Some buller  milkers have only a cow or two, and make so little  buller lhal il does nol appear to them lhat lhcy  can all'ord lo have their buller wraps prinlcd.  They do not like lhc idea of having 500 or 1000  buller wraps on hand. To accommodate this  class of buller makers, The Press has prinlcd up  a quantity of "Custom" Buller Wraps. They arc  printed with thc words "Fresh Dairy Buller" but  do nol bear the name of lhc maker. However,  .these wrappers, fill Ihe requirements of. the law  governing this point, and can be bought in small  quantities at the rate of 50c a hundred in 100 or  50 lots. If you do not require butter Wraps in  larger lots, lake these wraps in lesser quantities.  $2.75  -    -    3.75  In lots of 5*  In lots of 1000,  The Walker Press  ���������������������������f#iWS~Wj&Wm&*ty*  __-__mms-_---3E-_--m THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY-  Thursday, July 20; 1916  CLASS LEGISLATION IN B. C.  PROHIBITION ACT  Measure Would Mean One Law  for the Rich and Another  for   the   Poor  As thc details of the Prohibition Act, on which the electors  will give a referendum vote on  September M, are being brought  out, the measure is becoming  unpopular, with fair-minded  men because of thc fact lhal lhe  Act covers "class legislation" of  the most pronounced type.  Il is one of the principles of  A Irue and stable government lhal  J general laws should treat all citizens��������������������������� whelher workingman or  employer, whether rich or poor  ���������������������������alike. This principle is violated in a glaring manner by lhc  Prohibition Act, and, for lhal  reason, the measure is being  condemned by the working  class in particular and fair-  minded electors in general.  While many clauses of the  Act are ol" the "class legislation"  type, thc most glaring instance  is that which is contained in  Clause 57, the section which  provides for thc uncontrolled,  unrestricted and unlimited importation of liquor from outside  the Province. This clause reads  as follows:  "Nothing in this Act shall be construed to interfere (a) with the  right of any person to import from  without the Province liquor for  bona fide usc'in his dwelling house.'  This clause is a direct blow at  Lhc workingman, the mainstay  of the prosperity of the Province, and thc man of moderate  means, whose earnings arc insufficient to allow him to save  money to any considerable  amount.  It is legislation which says to  thc man who has money at his  disposal, "You may import all  thc liquor you. want, ordering it  by thc quart, gallon, case or barrel, so long as you send outside  the Province for it." To the  workingman or man of moderate means, who is accustomed to  buy his beer or other beverage  by"thc glass or bottle, it says in  emphatic terms: "No, you can't  do that any longer. If you want  to get liquor in small quantity  and buy it in your home town,  as you have been accustomed to  do," you must go lo thc doctor  and get a prescription, paying  his fcc,and then get thc prescription filled at the drug store."  Is nol this onc law for thc rich  and  another   for  the  poor,   or  man  of moderate means;  onc  law  for  thc  workingman   and  another for thc employer?   And  whal, in thc name of justice, is  that but "class legislation?  As   far  as   the  principles  of  ...Prohibition, a re ...concerned,  the  man   who   would   be   hil   by   this  class   legislation   is  asking   the  question as to why Prohibitionists think there is any more danger to be feared from the consumption   of    liquor   which   is  bought  by   the  quart,  case  or  barrel outside the Province than  there is  from  its consumption  --when*   bought -���������������������������locally   by  -llie  single   glass   or    bottle.      This  question is a hard one for Prohibitionists   to   answer,   as   the  Acl  sent   lo   Ihe  electors   wilh  their approval provides for lhe  purchase of just as much liquor  as was previously the. case, so  long as it is secured from a drug  store or imported from  points  outside lhe Province.  An illustration of lhe manner  in which even men of means  view the Act is shown by the  words of a prominent Vancouver financial man when he  said:  "If I voted for lhe Prohibition  Act, I'd do it with the knowledge lhat I could get just as  much liquor as I wanted anyhow, for I can afford to send  away for il. Bul 1 can't vote for  a measure which is so unfair as  to give me privileges which arc  denied to lhe workingman jusl  because he isn't as well fixed as  I am."

Local Conservatives Prepare for  Hot Contest in Opening Campaign  A joint meeting of the Enderby  ancl  District Conservative Associations was held in K. of P. Hall last  Saturday afternoon for the purpose  of  preparing  for  combined  effort  in    the   Provincial   election   campaign now on..  Some twenty members    were    in    attendance.      Mr.  Cochrane and Mr. II. Heggie, president and secretary of the North Okanagan   District   Association,   presided at'the meeting.   A resolution  was passed  making a working organization composed of an executive of seven members from the city  ancl     district    associations,    from  which number a president is to be  chosen.   These ollicers will handle  the business of lhe combined associations until the next annual meeting, when the resolution introduced  by   Mr.   A.   Tomkinson,   Grindrod,  will be acted upon.   This resolution  provides  for  the consideration  of  the question of forming local associations   at   Grindrod,   Mara   ancl  other  points  in   lhc  Enderby  district.    In moving the resolution, it  was argued that better work could  be accomplished  through local associations scattered about the district lhan through onc association  which attempted to cover the entire  district.    Thc   formation   of   these  local associations would give each  locality direct representation on the  North   Okanagan   District  Association, as thc president and secretary  of each local association would be  members of the District Association  and would have a voice in whatever business the District Association had to transact, and, through  having   this   representation,   each  local could carry its own business  before the Dislrict and there have  it acted upon.   This resolution was  carried unanimously, showing conclusively that it was thc opinion of  the meeting that thc local association idea was the correct one.  It was decided at this meeting  that a, general meeting of the Conservatives of Enderby district, now  including Mara, Grindrod, Glen  Mary, Deep Creek, Hulcar, Mabel  Lake, and other polling places  north, would be held Wednesday  afternoon for the purpose of completing the working organization  and for the election of delegates to  the nominating convention to be  held at Vernon Monday afternoon,  July 24th������������������  At the meeting held Wednesday  afternoon, the names of Messrs. I7.  Hassard, G. Rosoman and G. R.  Sharpe were added to the Executive  and Mr. Hassard was selected as  president of the Association.  The following delegates to the  nominating convention were elected from thc polling places within  the Enderby district:  Enderby���������������������������F. Hassard, W. .1. Fenton, F. H. Barnes.

"BRITAIN PREPARED"  One of the most impressive pictures shown in the Imperially authorized film of British war activities entitled "Britain Prepared," is  that showing the Dreadnoughts in  action firing broadside after broadside from their huge guns. Most  impressive of all, however, is the  picture of the Queen Elizabeth discharging her 15-inch monsters of  explosive destruction.  The dale for the appearance of  these films at Enderby has not yet  been named, but it?will be in the  near future. In England the opening presentation of "Britain Prepared" took place in the Empire  Theatre, London, and Right Hon.  Arthur Balfour, First Lord'of the  Admiralty, appeared .on the stage  to publicly sanction lhe film and  give it ollicial authority ancl approval. Their Gracious Majesties,  King George and Queen Mary, also  extended their patronage to the production. The main purpose in thc  mind of thc British authorities in  directing the preparation of these  pictures was to produce unanswerable proof that Britain was in this  war with all her might, ancl in it to  win. Copies of the film have been  sent to Russia and the allied countries on the continent to give ihe  people an idea of what Britain has  done, is doing, and intends to do.
