Master Eric Winter arrived Saturday to spend the summer holiday  with his parents; Mr. and Mrs. C. B.  Winter.  Chairman Fravel, of the board of  works, had a fine piece of work put  on,Cliff street this week. Cost little,  improvement big.  At a meeting of the Red Cross Society last Friday, it was decided to  reconsider their former decision  and to reopen the tea rooms.  .Don't - forget the new waterworks-regulations. Water'-will in  all cases be cut ..off at the eiid of  Ibis'.month if rates are npt paid.  - DivDent,,-Salmon Arm dentist; is  opening an ollice in Armstrong for  about a month. From "Armstrong  hc will come lo Enderby to stay,a  few days.  An epidemic of infantile.paralysis  has been raging in New York City  for the past- Iwo or three weeks,  and .the mortality rate has reached  one child an hour.  Quarter-master Sgt. Barnes came  home from lhc Vernon camp lasl  Thursday on a two-weeks' leave of  absence. He is speeding .his vacation in his hayfields.

Manv orchards on ��������������������������� lhe low  lands which last year produced  heavily are lhis year * producing  lillle or nothing.  Intense interest was shown i'n the  "Diamond from the Sky" films last  Saturday evening by a large crowd  at the Opera Mouse. Thc chapters  of last week and this arc closely interwoven in the working out of a  new phase in this dramatic masterpiece.  Principal Hughes has received an  offer, and has accepted, of one of  thc public schools at Nanaimo. The  population of Nanaimo is 8,300. It  would seem, therefore, that Mr.  Hughes' reputation as a teacher has  nol been impaired by his Enderby  experience.  The lawn social given Tuesday  evening al the home of Mr. and Mrs.  Jas. McMahon under the auspices  of the Young People of the Methodist Church, proved a mosl enjoyable event. The attendance was  large and proceeds amounted lo  something over $33.  Frank Pearson left for the coast  Friday afternoon after spending a  few weeks with his parents here.  Me hoped to hc in Moosejaw for thc  opening of the Stampede celebration, JUlv ll-'l.

The home is to be erected in sacred  memory of Helen, their departed  daughter.  Enquiries are numcuus for five-  acre ��������������������������� and ten-acre farms, and the  majority ol" the enquiries are for  pieces of land close to Enderby.  Are those who hold land in this  district prepared for these enquiries? can the demand be supplied?  Talk about Joshua! He wasn't in  it wilh the modern sunlight saving  device which is practiced in a lot  of places. By -this device sunlight  is saved, simply by moving the  hands of.the clock on one hour on  the first Sunday in April and moving them back on thc first Sunday  in October.  1 Auctioneer Creed, of Armstrong,  will hold an auction sale of live  stock, farm implements, wagons,  etc., in Enderby, Saturday afternoon, July 22nd. This is the first  of .a'scries* of similar sales, which  Mr. Cr^ed intends to hold here. He  will.have some great bargains for  the man having the cash.  Work in lhe hay fields, the past  week has been frequently" inter-'  rupted by rain showers. The damage to the. first cut of alfalfa, while  considerable, has been largely oll'set  by the increased growth in the sec-,  ond. crop. .Hay men who know the*  market 'tell* us' that hay is going to  be hay this season, and they anticipate high prices.  We have "yet to hear of a hill  land orchard in this district wherc  the "trees were in any way injured  by the severe frosts of lasl winter,  while every low-land orchard suffered moreorless severely. This  fact, now generally admitted, is inducing our low-land holders lo arrange to get more cows and other  live.stock on the land.  Hon.-W. J. Bowser is holding a  meeting at Salmon Arm Friday, at  thc close of which it is possible hc  will motor to Vernon, passing  through Enderby and Armslrong  en route. It has been reported that  the Premier will address a public  meeting in Enderby, bul we understand this report i.s without foundation. He is now on his way to  Ihe Similikamecn.

CANADIAN RED CROSS SALE  On Saturday lasl a very successful sale of home-cooking, fruil,  vegetables and eggs, in aid of funds  for the Bed Cross Society, was held  at the Bed Cross rooms. As il is  just a year since the monthly sales  in aid of the society were started, a  special eil'ort was made to mark  the anniversary.

COTTAGE HOSPITAL OPENING  The baby show ' and lawn fete  held last Friday afternoon and evening lo celebrate lhe formal opening of thc Cottage Hospital was a  great success, the hospital fund being benefitted thereby in ihe sum  of $100. The grounds were bcauti-  -f u 11 v=d eco r a led^witi__bu_i t in g,_a_n_L  Mr.'Mann kindly hung hi:; string of  colored lights for evening illumination. Miss Bowes, who look the  task of judging the babies, gave il  as her opinion lhat there never was  a more perfect lol of infants gathered together al any baby' show.  Only two out of all those olfcred  showed shortage in weight or development. To choose lhe winners  was an unenviable task. Prizes  were awarded--as follows: Best  girl over 1 year, Mrs. .1. Lucas; boy  over 1, Mrs. Win. Monk, Grindrod.  Rest girl under 1, Mrs. Witala,  Mara; boy under 1, Mrs. R. E. T.  Forster. Mosl popular baby on the  ground, Fuji Wara, Japanese.  The evening was devoted largely  lo social intercourse, and brief  talks were given on hospital affairs by Messrs. Poison, Dow, Dill  and Davies.  CREAMERY RETURNS  Thc Salmon Arm creamery produced 8,100 lbs of butter in the  monlh of June, valued, approximately al $2/100. The output is increasing each month.  The output of the Armstrong  creamery is now between 1700 and  1S00 pounds of butter each week,  in addition to the extensive ice  cream business being worked up.  Mr. R. J. Coltart, probably thc  heaviest shipper of cream to Armstrong from Enderby dislrict, received a cheque for his first-  month's cream shipments some  days ago. He reports his returns  in every way satisfactory. Prior to  becoming a patron of the creamery  Mr. Coltart, for many ycars, had  been making butter on a commercial basis and had a paying business well established. He was  asked bv Ihe Press how his cream  returns 'worked out in comparison  with his former butter returns. In  reply Mr. Coltart said his cream returns were about even with his  former butler returns, with the  work of making the butter and delivery of it left out. In other words  his cows were reluming him as  much from the cream alone as Ihey  previously had returned him after  he had worked the cream up into  butter and delivered it to his customers. If this is true of one, it is  no doubt true of all. It can readily  be seen, therefore, the advantage of  the creamery to the dairyman.  FIRST   SUBMARINE   FREIGHTER  What is claimed to bc the first  of a lleet of submarine merchantmen to ply regularly in the Atlantic  trade between German ports and  neutral countries reached Chesapeake Bay on Sunday and landed at  Baltimore, Me., her valuable cargo  of 750 tons of dyestuffs direct from  Heliogoland. "This is not the only  one that is coming," said the German captain. "Just owait. There  will be more soon, and we are going back for another cargo. We are  going to have a regular line."  This- submarine freighter is the  first to come.-from Germany. ��������������������������� The  ship is 315- feet in. length, ancl car-  ries;a captain, first and-'secohel officers -and 'twenty-six - men,, .Her.  carrying.'capacity* isnol stated, but,  as her cargo consisted of 750 tons,  it. is likely, this is/somewhere near  her limit. '*;'rh.i.s._means;.say*.2.Vcar^,  loads.; "The submarine freighter,.'so  Captain Konig says,* left" Heliogoland June 23rd. Her speed' above  water is 14 knots, and below the  surface 7 1-2 knots. .Her captain  says that in crossing the Atlantic  Ihe submarine travelled 3,800 miles,  and of this amount only !)0 miles  were travelled below the surface.  ���������������������������  Thc British and French, representatives al Washington appeared  before thc stale department and endeavored to have the submarine declared a ship of war. The department, however, after investigating thc craft and finding her unarmed, officially declared lhe uoat  a merchantman, which means that  boats of her class will have docking privileged in any American  port, provided they can escape iliC  vigilance of the British navy.

They didn't turn the hands of  Ihe clock ahead an hour and let it  go at lhat. Nor did they tell the  Lord lo* make the sun stand still.  They used lo get up at sunrise and  shovel the mosquitoes away from  the windows inlo the lake to let lhe  sunlight in.  casional loot  slalion   plat I  cpiitoes were  In order to get an oc-  : at thc lake from the  'oi'in   when   the   mos-  ripe, they used to get  together in bunches and everybody  threw stones inlo the bank of  skeeter fog.

PRESERVING  WITHOUT SUGAR  The fruit growers of the Province  face a peculiar difficulty this season in thc sale of a pricots.peachcs,  plums, prunes, cherries and pears  for preserving purposes.   Thc difficulty is  the high  price of sugar,  which   disposes  the   housewife  to  curtail   the  amount   of   fruit   pre-i  serving.    Jusl  why   tne   price   of  sugar   should   soar   whenever   the  preserving season, opens has never  been satisfactorily explained.   Per-i  haps, an investigation by lhc Gov-',  eminent would disclose the reason.  Bul   this   would   .not    necessarily  make  Ihe price  come down.    We  have yet to hear of a royal com- -  mission ever reducing the cost of *  any article investigated.      , '      '   ���������������������������  As a means Qf inducing more preserving   of   fruit,   the   Provincial *  Horticulturist calls attention to this  recipe for preserving fruit' without  sugar:  "To put up fruits without sugar,  simply prepare them in the* ordin:  ary way; see that the jars,are per--'  fectly   clean,   thoroughly   scalded,"  with boiling water, filled to,the top  and   left  in   them ' a/considerable.,'  time; boil-the rubbers and. covers, J  and see- that'the rubbers'are", soft 1  and .free -from grooves 6r:,cracks;. -  place the?,fruit in the jar's; till with--  cold .water,, placc'-theni. in."avboilcr "  filled with.cold.w'aler,<heat tb-'boilV"  ing~ point.'

Aboard should-  be" placed   at   the   bottom :of   the.  boiler  to'- keep  the jars  from  thc .  direct   heat   of   thc   stove.     Fruit ,;  thus   prepared   will   bc   found   ex-';  ccllenl  for pies, delicious  for eating with cream, and, geiici'ally^su-  perior to lhe sugar-syrup preserves. -  In   properly   air-tight  jars   it   will  keep quite as-long."  1 As lo the general question of  economy, it may be pointed oul  thai while so many essential articles of food have risen in price on  account of lhc war, fruit has been,-  and will be as cheap as oyer. There  will be a decided saving, therefore, in using it lo replace, as far  as possible, other more expensive  foods. Il should be further considered that war conditions have  greatly increased the cost of Eng-  isli jams, so lhat it will bc econ- .  uniy-to=replaccHhese=-as^far-as-pos-���������������������������=  sible with home-made jams and  preserves.  With regard to lhc high price of  sugar at preserving time, why use  sugar at all? The prevalent idea  thai fruit cannot bc kept without  the addition of sugar in the process  of canning is quite a mistake. If  made inlo a thick syrup, sugar acts  as an antiseptic, keeping perfectly  sound fruit from decay even without heal, bul,"in the quantities ordinarily used in canning, il takes  absolutely no part in the preservation of the fruit from deterioration. Authorities all agree lhat  fruit put up without sugar retains  its delicate and distinctive llavor  very much better,'and is altogether  superior'to that put up in the ordinary way. Of course, sugar will  eventually have lo bc used in pre-,  paring lhc fruit for the table, but  much less is required to sweeten to  taste after cooking. This i.s so for  a well-understood, scientific reason. Our ordinary white granulated is a pure while sugar, and is  the sweetest of sugars. When cane-  sugar is heated in the presence of  an acid, it gradually changes into  other forms of sugar having much  less sweetening power. One of.  these, glucose, has only about 30  per cent the sweetening power of  pure cane sugar. All fruits contain  more or less acid, and so all mix- y  lures of I'ruil and sugar tend to  lose sonic of their sweetness in thc  process of cooking. On this account, it is much more economical .  to add lhe sugar after thc fruil is  cooked, while this i.s, also, the only  way in which the full characteristic flavor of the fruil can be retained.

THURSDAY, JULY 13, 1916  WHICH WOULD YOU BE ?  There is a peculiar trail in all men which conies  lo lhc surface when men are idle. The man with  plenty lo do���������������������������lhe busy man���������������������������the man (or lhe  woman) whose lime is laken up wilh some useful  work���������������������������will never bc found to have developed thc  trail lo which we refer. Il is the trail of I'aull-  Imding���������������������������modiirnly labulale as "knocking."  There is a vast dilVercnce between honestly pointing out wrongs lhal exist, and knocking thc men  who arc doing things. There is the difference of  one sincerely drying lo heller lhc commimily and  his conn try,"and "one jealously trying to block lhe  wheels oJ.' progress. In one wc have the Saviors  of (he world, in the other, the Judas Iscariots.  Pray for your enemies���������������������������Ihey .are your best  friends. They point oul lo you faults your friends  either do nol see or seek lo cover up.  CONSERVATIVE CONVENTION  prosperity. Thc only man poor today is the man  who has'nothing lo sell. And as this is Irue of  the individual, so is il Irue of lhe community, the  slate. The solution, then, here, of lhe problem  confronting us is to produce more. II is easier to  talk more production lhan il is lo affect more  production. Argument is not necessary lo prove  lhis point. We "have had lhc talking; we are now  gradually working inlo the real lask which must  precede more production. Here and there in all  directions acres are being 'cleared and put inlo  crop; lhe increase in live slock, while not rapid,  i.s considerable, and lhere is now opening a period  of expansion along dairying and mixed farming  lines. Wc hear less about fruil raising and ni'ore  aboul cows and sheep, pigs and horses, chickens  and field crops. And, whal is more lo lhe point,  we see more slock on lhe farms and more fields  under cultivation.  I-Jere and now, wilhin, and nowhere else, is all  the heaven wc need. And if life here is hell il is  hell because we make il so, and will bc hell there  unless we change our ways.  ENCOURAGING HOME INDUSTRIES  This is a question lhal has been up before. Il  is old, yel ever new. However old or however  new, il should bear repetition. When thc flouring  mill was in operation in Enderby it was looked  upon as a fixed institution���������������������������therefore il was nol  lo hc encouraged, bul rather knocked. A'ncl it  was knocked, bolh skilfully and persistently, ll  finally closed ils doors and slopped grinding. It  has now been "dead" three or four years. 11 may  come to life again sometime, it may nol. All we  are sure of is lhal il is "'dead" now. No!: until it  closed down did our people realize fully whal U  meant to Enderby and district lo have lhc mill in  operation, year in and year oul. Today, with this  mill, and one at Armstrong and another al Vernon  every pound of (lour used in lhe Valley must  come from lhe mills on lhe Prairie, and in Manitoba. In fact, even while thc mill was opera I ing  here, the Manitoba and Northwest Hour kings  were assisted by Okanagan businessmen to land  eastern and prairie Hour here to be sold in competition with lhc home-milled Hour���������������������������a flour unequalled by any shipped here from thc east.  ft should bc welcome news lo every Enderbyitc  lo learn that ihe lumber markcl is* booming and  promises lo continue lo boom all summer. This  means big business for the Okanagan Saw Mills  this season, and bigger business next season, ll  means bigger business for every business house  in Enderby. Thc supply of saw logs for this season's cut is limited. This means lhal next winter  there willjiavc lo be several logging camps running in the vicinilv of Mabel Lake. It means  good business next" winter, with a big cut next  season assured. 11 means much to Enderljy and  lhe District to have this mill and lhc winler  camps in operation. Every knock comes home lo  roost, so don'l knock.  fl is only when wc can use grief as a stepping  slonc lo service thai wc really can enjoy life as we  should.  'BRITAIN PREPARED"  Al a meeting of Ihe executive of lhc Northern  Okanagan Dislrict Conservative Association held  at Vernon last week, il was decided lo hold a new  nominating convention. Each local association  will be required  lo select dejegales lo, jhe con-  venIio n. wiTicTTwilllicTTiel7i on Thursday. August  3rd. wilh Ihe elections on Thursday. .September  1 lib. While all districts have nol as yel decided  lo hold new conventions, lhe demand of Ihe Conservative vulors seems lo favor such a practice,  and meelings have been called lo decide lhe (pies-  lion ol' re-opening.  So far as the North Okanagan riding i.s concerned, il cannol he questioned lhal lhis is lhe  11tost iuveplable procedure lo follow, in view of  lhe position laken by many Conservatives in lhe  riding following lhe nominalion of lion. Price  Ellison al the lasl convention, il i.s only reasonable lo expeel Ihem io demand another convention. If Mr. Ellison is again named as lhe candidate all can. then unile to work for and elect  him. If another man is named lhere can he no  room for division. If lhe Conservative.^ had nol  re-opened Ihe couveiilion there would have been  ample grounds for bringing up anew Ihe issues  of lhe callle deal Ihreshed oul lorn' ago.  Speaking of the appearance of these wonderful  moving pictures in Vancouver, lhe Province said:  "These official moving pictures of the British Government,  entitled  "Britain  Prepared,"  created  a  scr-  sation in London and throughout Britain wherever  shown. They present in pictures what thc British  censor refused lo allow lo be lolcl in actual words. We.  .arc.shown���������������������������nol told���������������������������and what���������������������������wc-scc .with.our, own  repro-  camcra  Adversity is the mother of strength, and a well-  rounded character is one lhal has nol been too  good.  ARE WE PREPARED ? '  I  Ihe  lhe  her  peril d  the  wil  we  sbi  Ion  am  el no man look through indigo glasses upon  fullire  of  lhe   Okanagan���������������������������and   particularly  Enderby dislrict of lhe Okanagan.   We have  e lhe making of one of the richest, mosl pros-  ous districts in America.    It is nol now such  islricl. bul il is a dislrict as good as any with  same   amouni   of   development.     The   day  come, and il is nol so very far disbud, when  shall see hundreds of tons of produce heing  iped  from   this district  where  lhere are  fen  s shipped today.   And wilh. lhe increase in lhe  ounl  of  produce   will  come   the  increase   in  eyes  wc  must   believe,    The   modern  duces wilh marvellous fidelity.  "There are pictures i\nd pictures.

Wc see the men of  Kitchener's Army enlisting. We see their transformation inlo soldiers. We see Ihem march away lo thc  fronl. We see whal it meant when Lloyd George mobilized lhc industries of Britain. Wc see the greal naval  ship-vards and the building and launching of Dreadnoughts. Wc sec where the gival guns are made, and  we see them tested with great charges of high explosive.

CALF CLUBS  in knowing lhc findings of Inspector Ansley as a  . result of the enquiry ordered by thc Department,  thc report is given herewith:  Ollice  of   Inspector  of   Schools,   Vernon,   B.C.,   Julv  1st, 1916:  Alexander Robinson, Esq., Superintendent of Education, Victoria, B. C.  Sm:; I beg lo return letter from certain Enderby  rale payers, and lo submit following report on the  dismissal of Principal Hughes of the public school.-  A.   The following is a summary of relevant facts:  April 18th: After inspecting Enderby school 1 met  the trustees by appointment and reported favorably on  Mr. Hughes', work. They mentioned various (ancl in  my opinion) trivial complaints that had been made  against him. I advised them to retain his services Tor  next year, as 1 considered his work on the whole satisfactory ancl likely to be quite good eventually. The  trustees appeared satisfied wilh this advice and prepared lo act' upon it.  May 18th. A petition was presented to the Board,  signed by parents of 18 pupils oul of 20 in Mr. Hughes'  room ancl containing the following: "Ve . . . .believing  that the work of Mr. Hughes is not satisfactory, and  nol in the best interests of "the school children and of  the district petition you to remove Mr.,Hughes  from the principalship."  May 19th.   The secretary wrote Mr. Hughes a letter^  informing him of the Board's'resolve to dispense with'  his services al close of school year, giving as reason  .   "the complaints of parents who have absolutely refused to send their children if you remain," and' sug-       Some of lhe states to lhc south of US have a  ' gosling that he resign. - very practical way of doing things lo assist lhe  May _9th.   Sccrcir.i.   sent a second letter dismissing': l-        -1 -        ���������������������������      - ������������������  Mr. Hughes as from June 30lh, and containing thc following: "The reason for serving you wilh this  notice is a petition signed by 18 of ihe parents and  guardians of lhe children in your room stating that  your work was not satisfactory and asking for your  removal." ���������������������������  May 30th.    Mr. Hughes sent a letter of resignation.  June 15th. Mr. Hughes wrote withdrawing resignation.  June 30t'h. Secretary wrote declining to accept  withdrawal, "as the Board had already made olher  arrangements." ' ,  The-foregoing constitutes'the whole-of the negotiations between Board and Principal; no other communication' passed; the Principal did not meel the  Board; no member of the Board has visited ihe school  since March last. '    i   *.    ' -  ,'    B.   On receiving your request that I investigate this  matter,-! decided, that you .would require information  on  two points, Viz.,   (1)   the reasons ,alleged by "the-  - Board for their action, as required by Section 11Gb'of  ..the School-Act "and   (2)   the question' whether such  reasons appear substantial and valid. ���������������������������  I therefore'summoned two meetings; the first of the  Board of School Trustees; and the second a public  meeting .at which 1 lequested the attendance of the  signatories of thc petition'of May 18th.  Of the full Board, at the first and private...conference,  I enquired the reason for their action. In reply I was  referred to their letter of May 20th,"and was told that,  they simply complied with llie petitioners' request,  'considering lhat if the parents of 18 pupils of his own  room demanded his supersession, then such course  was evidently desirable.     ,   ���������������������������  I pointed out that Ihey, and not the parents, were responsible for the appointment and dismissal of teachers; that their action constituted a surrender of their  powersin this respect; thai in.any case the petitioners  should have been required to adduce facts in support  of Iheir claims; that Mr. Hughes should have been  given a hearing in his own defence; and," finally, that  I considered it my duty to do what they should have  done before taking action adverse to the Principal,  viz., to ascertain the petitioners' reason's for signing  such a request.  They admitted lhat their action had been irregular,  but considered lhat they had consulted thc best interests of the school, instancing their treatment of  the late High School teacher as a case where the end  'l_u'_justified the means.  ���������������������������"^CrVvrth'Trrec"^  "who had signed the petition lo state the reasons for  their action. In reply live ladies made verbal complaints, and one man pul in a written communication  which was read. No definite and serious delinquencies were alleged; general lack of progress of the  children; leaching inadequate and nol understood;  insullicicnt help given; harshness as shown in manner  and language; unsatisfactory teaching methods and  lack of interest, are examples. Mr. Hughes was present and replied lo most of the criticisms of his work.  Several ratepayers spoke and Ihe meeting closed after  aboul two hours' discussion, about 50 persons being  j) resen I. ��������������������������� .  1).   After having given the matter careful consideration, I have formed lhe following conclusions:  (a) That   the   Board's   action   in   condemning  Mr.  Hughes unheard is altogether indefensible:  (b) That    Ihe    parents'   complaints   were    either  farming communities. For instance, the state of  Illinois food department concluded that the boys  and girls on the farms should have greater opportunity lo secure well bred dairy heifers. The  Farmer's Review* tells how this opportunity was  given-Ihem: "Bankers of thc^state have been enlisted and are loaning money at 6 per cent to  worthy boys and girls lo buy.heifers, asking only  as security an agreement signed by parent or  guardian- to act as sponsor for lhc youngster  who lakes a calf. The heifers will be kept a year  and then will be sold at public auction, the difference between purchase price plus interest to "go  to thc youngsters; or thc heifers will be kept by  those who receive them on payment of thc purchase .price plus-interest. Doubtless many good,  heifers .will thus bc placed in communities'that  would nol have secured them so soon under any  other plan. To that extent, ancl becauseVlie children will become interested in better stock, thc  plan7'is laudable. , Some may say they don't sec  how work-of this" sort .comes under the duties of  lhe state food department, but that point is of  minor importance so' long as results arc  desirable."  A POLICY THAT HURTS  Down in Armstrong, when the ladies of thc  Red Cross opened a tea room and served thc public, thc businessman paying a license to serve the  public in this line went lo them and ma'de them  a clcaii-cut business proposition. "Here," said  hc, "you open regularly and run lhc business as  it should bc run and I'll close my door; or let me  run the business regularly and you close your  door." They saw thc point, and arc now confining their efforts to Red Cross work in other  directions.    Carried lo lhc limit that some arc  praise of lhe Act or in defense of  the principles covered by the measure. The Bill came up, as usual, for  lirst, second ancl third readings,  as "well as lengthy discussion in  committee stage. Yet nol a member  of lhe House, Conservative, Liberal, Socialist or* Independent advocated or described it as a-Prohibition Acl in any sense of the  word, or outlined in what way the  legislation would be for thc best  interests of the Province.  A review of the statements made  by members of the legislature with  reference to the Bill is interesting  as showing -their real opinion of  the measure.  On second reading the Hon. AV. J.  Bowser, the Premier, went over  the history of hotel legislation in  the Province, explaining the strict  legislation of licensed premises according to the Bowser Act, and,  closing his remarks wilh an outline of thc Prohibition Act. So far  as the principles of this measure  were concerned hc said not onc.  word in ils favor, nor did.hc ulteri  a single word to lhc effect that hc4  believed it to be a Prohibition Acl  in any sense Whatever, or that such  legislation,, would be beneficial io  the Province.  , Mr. H. C. Brewster, of Victoria,  .(leader of Ihe Opposition) on second reading of the Bill, expressed  surprise that thc Prohibitionists  had not brought in a Bill which  would really prohibit. In this connection he said:    _.  "I am surprised that we,.are  not asked to pass an Act that  will actually prohibit; that, is,  that-advantage  has   nol   been  laken  of the Dominion  lcgis-  Jation giving power to the Province  to  prohibit, the  posses-    ���������������������������  sion of liquor."  - ���������������������������  .When   discussing .in   committee  Secti'on 57 of the Act  (the clause  which   provides   for  uncontrolled;  unrestricted- "and   unregulated- importation' of   liquor   from\outside  points),'  Mr."  Brewster    repealed  these observations and also severely criticised the Act in* the'following* words: *** '**.".  '-'1 am  surprised,, indeed, that  the  Prohibition   people '.have  not  taken ��������������������������� advantage  of "the * favorable  position ,they now occupy and sub-  mil an Act that will effectually prohibit.    There arc many features of  this legislation not in* the best interests of' our people. ' As an  example,  I   refer  to   thc  burden   of  proof which should not bc on the  accused as in this Act, because this  is   wrong ancl   an   un-British  principle."  Mr. Parker Williams, member for  Newcastle, when discussing the Act  in committe, criticised the measure severely. Speaking from the  workingmah's standpoint, he declared the Act to be class^ legislation of the strongest type and said  lhat the Bill was not a prohibition  measure in any particular. The  .words of Mr. Williams in this con-  'ollows  turn the home inlo a saloon ancl the  drug store into a liquor shop where  subterfuge, deceit and false pretense will become common and  open in order to obtain liquor. It  will take a standing army to enforce  it, if indeed, 25,000 extra Provincial police could do so. It is un-  British in principle; the right to  search a man's home without a  warrant being retroactive ancl repugnant. The onus of proof on the  accused will engender blackmail  and espionage.  "Enormous sums of money will  be sent out of the Province which  would otherwise bc spent in the  Province, taxation increased, great  non-employment caused, and in no  way, shape or form will it benefit  the state. It is class legislation of  the rankest description, permitting  the wealthy man lo slock his home  from cellar lo garret if he wish,  but thc poor man must pay for a  doctor's prescription and a high  price for the liquor at a. drug  store."  In view of thc fact that no member of Ihe legislature defended in  the House the principles of the Pro- '  hibilion"  Bill,   and   that   represent- .  atives of all political opinions, Conservatives,   Liberals,   Independents  and   Socialists,   criticised" the  Act,  severely during its consideration, it1  would   seem   lhat   the   electors   of'-  British Columbia should very care- ���������������������������,  fully consider- the measure before  casting their ballot at the refcren-.  dum polls. j 13-1  Just  Arrived  LANGLY WARE  .(English make)  73he BEST the world produces iri this class of goods.  -.:M  THE FOLLOWING  ARE  NOW IN r  r  .    .

I have the honor lo be, Sir,  Your obedient servant,  Arthur Anstey, Inspector of Schools.  THE BOYCOTT HITS BACK  In the modern commercial world, for, an individual or a body of individuals to publish the  fact lhat hc or they have decided to boycott another individual or body of individuals, is to  brina' reproach upon lhc intelligence of thc individual or body of individuals proposing lhc  boycott. The boycott used to be an effective  weapon in lhe hands of a certain class, but it was  always a boomerang that came back'.hardest on  lhe thrower. Today it is recognized as a species  of conspiracy to ruin the business of a person or  community by thc interruption of his business or  olher relations  with  others.    A  boycott,  even  coming  means thai certain business institutions of the  town must quit trying to serve the public and  seek other fields.   This is a policy that must hurt  thc community in a measure out of all proportion  to thc good- that can bc derived from it by thc  Red Cross society.    While onc can admire thc  noble work of Jhe ladies, and all should offer  Ihem cncouragcmejil along legitimate lines, slill,  wc think lhcy overstep thc line when Ihey take  from  bu  to.    ricltcr pu  than intrude upon lhc field of lhc regularly li  censed businessman, whr< finds it dillicull enough  these days lo make ends meel.  rect methods and i.s therefore an  other example of class legislation,  the intention being that the work-  ingman will be unable to send outside for his liquor, but the, rich  man will be able lo have all he  wants. I am surprised to hear that  the Prohibitionists are satisfied  wilh Ihe terms of an Act which  permits-any-man to import liquor  into lhe Province by wholesale  nm nnr pptmhHv licensed storekeepers the lillle iim willing to vole lor Prohibition  om oui   cguiaiiN ncu.scn sioicKccpcis mc iiiul, n]    .ohibi,  bll, ������������������������������������������������������, ,-()1. such  isincss lhcy might have and are justly entitled i;1  lop.si(|ed,  jug-handled  imitation  .

Thomson, member foi  Victoria, in speaking of the Act,  called attention lo the fact that it  was nol a Government measure in  anv sense of the term. The Government was in no way responsible for Ihe Hill except for its  drafting and' preparation* for the  referendum vole. He then analyzed  the Bill and gave to it the name  "Gold Brick," a term by which thc  Act is now popularly known  throughout the Province.

Gove rn in ent   ji ge n to;  There has been a number of  Doukhobour gentlemen around this  burg lately. A bunch of Ihem have  been in the employ of the B. C.  Telephone Co., working'apparently  on pole line conlracls. Onc of  these Douks was doing some tooting  the horn the other clay.  "Bimeby we have government of  our own and run this country lo  suit us," hc is reported to have  said, and "we get heap money;  soon bring in more Doukhobours  from Saskalchewan. Few years perhaps have everytings."  Very interesting, is it nol. The  B. C. Telephone Co. hires Douks lo  construct its pole lines, at a saving  perhaps of from 25 to 50 per cenl.  At the same time the B. C. Telephone Co. expects the merchanls  of Nelson and Kaslo, from whom  the Douks never buy a thing, and  the residents of these towns, who  are underbid by thc aforesaid  Douks, to. patronize thc telephone  company, so thai it may hand its  stockholders   regular   dividends.  Beautiful slate of affairs, isn't it?  This i.s sure getting to bc some  fine climate for a while man. Al  the rate the Douks, bdhunks and  other foreign gentry are. overrunning this Province, there'll soon be  little room for the rest of us, or our  standard of living. Al the same  time many people will throw .slurring remarks al some of our young  fellows because they will not go  and enlist to fight for the Douks  and  bohunks.���������������������������Kaslo  Kootenain.  Serving "Medicine" in Manitoba  The Manitoba temperance authorities, are facing a serious question in connection with thc sale  of medicated liquors. Since the  Prohibition Act came into force,  the consumption of these beverages  has grown rapidly. Invalid port  ancl similar beverages were being  sold by grocers and confectioners,  and in one case an ice cream parlor  served medicine in lhe ordinary  course of its business. It is generally known that during the past-  month the increase in thc sale of  patent medicines which arc known  to contain a large percentage of alcohol has lapidly increased.  Proud to bc Saving  Many people have the idea that il  i.s discreditable lo be saving in  trifles. They need lo learn that it i.s  wrong lo waste anything. Many of  our most highly organized industries make their pro/its out of utilization of by-products formerly  thrown away. This is something to  be proud of. It would be a fine  lesson in thrift if school children  could be taught lo start a savings  account with money made from old  rags and papers lhal were once  wasted.

ALL WELL AT ALL FRONTS  While lhc news' from all fronts  the past week has been largely the  retelling and enlarging upon the  advances reported last week, there  is the accompanying assurance  given that the armies of thc Allies  have succeeded thus far in holding  the ground gained, ancl are succeeding here ancl there in capturing advance positions from the enemy. It  i.s now given out from London that  il is not the intention of thc Allies  to break the German line, but  merely to keep up thc pressure at  all points in the hope of thus  gradually wearing it down. Statements of this nature must, of course  be laken for what they are worlh.  We all know that lhe armies of the  Allies would break the German line  tomorrow if they could do it, and  thc Germans would do thc same to  lhc Allies if it were humanly possible.
