War may bc all right, ancl the war  spirit may be a good thing to cultivate, but it seems to me all these  sons and fathers whom our military  powers are sending against onc another, can do us more good above  ground than under it.  In the grounds of the Bank of  Montreal, Thursday, Sept. 14th, 2.30  ' to G p.m., the W.

Mr. Rupert Davy was in Enderby  Saturday, from Mara. Mr. Davy denies that the windstorm accompanying the hail, which struck that  section a week or more ago, tipped  over his new barn loaded with a  hundred tons of hay, as was reported to The Press. The wind did  lift the roof off of thc old barn,  however, in which he had probably a corload of hay unbaled.

Faulkner asked the opinion  of the members regarding thc protection of lire hydrants for the  coming winter. Mayor Dill suggested attaching a wire to the bottom of each hydrant so lhat in case  of freezing the pipe-thawing machine could be used. It was decided  to obtain expert opinion on. llie  -matter, and lo postpone consideration in the meantime.  Aid. Fravel reported that he had  received several letters from Mr. G.  R. Lawes, complaining of the condition of the road leading to his hill  property, and threatening to lake  action in the courts if same were  not put in good order. Referred to  board of works to investigate.  Aid. Faulkner drew attention to  the proposed visit to the Valley of  an ollicer of the Provincial Educational Department in connection  with the question of manual training in lhe public schools, and discussed briefly the advantages to be  derived from the scheme the Government i.s seeking,to establish ih  all thc schools.   " -  It was decided that in future no  street lamps shall be put in to replace those" out of commission, unless ordered from the city office.   ���������������������������  Waler service" was granted to E."  J. Mack and.A-. Elliott.,  The clerk drew attention to thc  forthcoming municipal convention  ���������������������������and statechthaU*a'uy.'iniaUers which  the Council desired to place before  the convention should "be in the  hands of the secretary thirty clays  before date of same. It was de-  cidecLto recommend thc convention  to ask the Government to place in  the Municipal Act a section similar  lo one contained in the Municipal  Acl of Ontario, making thc business  of the corporation continuous, so  that matters Begun-but not finished  by an outgoing council could be  completed by the incoming council  without going back and commencing such matters afresh; also to  recommend application being made  for a change in the special surveys  Act so that nolices^lo property owners provided for in the Acl could hc  delivered   by   any   ollicer   of   the  municipality,  and   not  necessarily  by the clerk.  Interested in Valuable Properly  ART1N BURRELL IN OKANAGAN  Mr. J. L. Rullan molor'ed down  from Vanderhoof lasl week and  spent a few days at his home here.  He was accompanied by his, son,  Percy. Mr. Ruttan brought wilh  him some surface samples of ore  taken from a mine' prospect he  holds a half interest in, situated in  the vicinity of Fort Fraser. The  ledge-outcropping, he says, has been  uncovered for a distance of seven  miles. The surface ore assays some  2000 ozs. silver," accompanied by a  small showing of copper and gold.  An eastern American company has  had an expert report on the property with the object of thc company  taking it up on a bond.  Death of Roy Ackman  The death of Mr. Harold=Roy Ackman occurre.dat his home," in Monc-  ton, N. S., last week; aged 30-ycars.  Mr; Ackman will bc remembered'by  many .Enderby citizens for his- un^  tiring'.ah'd whole-hearted"'spiVit pf  doing anything undertaken by him  during his residence here some five  or six years ago. He was related  to. Mr. Taylor, then manager of ,the  Bank of'Montreal. In recent,years  Mr. Ackman was employed with the  Harris Abbaloir Co., Toronto, also  with the Swift Co.,. with headquarters in Halifax. About two  ycars ago hc was seized with a serious illness, from which he never  fully recovered, ancl gradually went  into decline.  Hon. Martin Burrell, minister of  Agriculture, spent the pasl week in  lhe Okanagan. Contrary to his intentions when he came inlo lhe'  Valley, Mr. Burrell took advantage  of the opportunity offered in the  South Okanagan to step .upon the  political plalform ancl speak in the  interests of the parly and Mayor  Jones, of Kelowna, Conservative,  candidate for the South,',riding.  AVhile in Enderby last Thursday.  Mr. Burrell said lo The Press, lhal  none of us yet fully realize thc importance on- the magnitude of the  operations which' Canada has undertaken   in   connection  with   the  t  great world war.

The financial dilliculties which the directors  have been endeavoring to adjust are  now about cleared up, and there is  no doubl the creamery is gradually  being pul upon a sound, permanent  basis.  Anolhcr Mystery al Vernon  There was a get-away achievement pulled off at Vernon a few  days ago that was a marvel even for  that cily, now notorious for its mysterious disappearances. Fourteen  interned prisoners disappeared, in'  one day, and up to lasl reports none  of Ihem has since been captured,  lt is said the men tunnelled out of  the internment blockade, and to do  so must have swallowed lhe earth  taken from the hole and pulled the  hole in after them. At all events,  they are gone and away.  This butterfly business is all right  till the frost comes, then, my I my! THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, September 14, 1916  Votes for women! Yes. But will this bring  the change desired? In what way can it? No  thinking man, or thinking woman, believes suffrage for women can bring purity in politics while  the present low estimate of party fealty holds the  electors in its grasp. The trouble seems to bc that  wc have forgotten the "duty" of Hie voter and of  parly in our prating of our "rights." In the question at issue���������������������������the plugging���������������������������each party is prepared to cast upon the oilier all responsibility for  the transaction if by so doing its own skirts can  be kepi clean-and ils faults hidden.  Here's llie advice of a sage: "Young man, don't  get groggy over girls, religion, words, art or  politics. They arc all good in moderation, but bad  if you get an overdose."

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1916  KEEPING THE RURAL SCHOOLS OPEN  The attention of Tlie Press lias been called to  thc fact lhat at least one of the rural schools in  this district stands in danger of being forced to  close il" thc monev is nol forthcoming from the  lax levy Lo keep il running.  It seems  that thc  Government pays over lo the school boards of the  rural schools the school tax money only when thc  school laxes arc paid by lhc residents of the  school district. II" taxes arc delinquent and arc  not collected by the Government lax collector,  then lhc school dependent upon this tax levy  must cither close its doors or find thc money in  some oilier way. And yet, there arc no delinquent lax sales held by the Government and consequently many ratepayers are Jong in arrears  and the schools short in cash.  Separate the wheal from the chaff in thc prohibition controversy and Ibis is what,,.I. P.'s  Weekly finds you have left of a law which is  supposed to work a great reform by stopping the  use of liquor. That liquor may be imported in  quantities limited only by the ability of thc importer lo pay for the liquor. That there is no  Restriction whatever upon drinking liquor nor  becoming drunk. That your home is no longer  your castle, for a constable without a warrant,  may break into il on suspicion and search"it at  any lime of thc day or night. That thc poor man  is discriminated against by thc law in favor of the  rich man. That the passage of lhe proposed law  will, bc a serious blow at the credit of the Province as a field for British investors.  These arc cold incontrovertible facts. It is not  a prohibition law, but an instrument of tyranny  in the hands of narrow-gauge whiskey informers.  It docs not restrict the use of liquor but it docs  restrict the freedom of the subject and il violates  the sanctity and privacy of the home. Surely a  belter act than this can be devised. The prohibitionists can blame no onc but themselves for the  lollies of this act. They could have had real prohibition if they had asked for il. Instead of a  genuine reform, lhcy arc offering thc public a  measure which docs not restrict drinking, yet  lakes drinking completely out of public control.  Come in and I'll show you why the Kootenay stays as  good as new long after other ranges have to be repaired  or replaced.  809  The trouble wilh mosl of politicians who arc  always seeking lo serve lhe dear people, is lhal  thc dear people have given Ihem  loo much for  nothing.  SHOULD GO TO THE BOTTOM  Premier Bowser says that the next legislature  will stand 31 io 16 wiih the odds in his favor. We  shall know by tomorrow evening if hc is as good  at guessing as at organizing.  YES, AND CHURCH CONTRIBUTIONS  "Bruce," in J. P.'s Weekly, says that iwo parsons have recently broken loose and denounced  thc press of  Vancouver because of its silence  editorially  on   lhc   prohibition   question.     Onc  sweetly reasonable preacher says lhe Vancouver  newspapers arc worse lhan  fallen  women���������������������������lhc  rest of his phrase is not nice for a decent paper  to publish. Another parson says that a newspaper  which accepts advertisements for liquor becomes  a partner in the trallic and ergo, a partner with  thc devil and a minority shareholder in hell.   By  the same reasoning it might bc inferred that a  newspaper which publishes church notices gratis  and columns of preachers' sermons  mi������������������hl become a partner in salvation wilh a working interest in the pearly gates and golden pavements  of the New Jerusalem.    But you never hear a  parson offering any such inducements, nol even  thc mundane coin of thc realm, which wc all  need, parsons included.

This  week the noise of political bailie will bc over, and  lei il be hoped that lhat disgraceful affair .will receive more attention from the Government. Thc  charges of the Liberal speakers against the Conservalives implicate two of the latter party's ward  workers in such a way lliahwo^ Conservatives cai^  hoTchiini"To be free fro iii' all implication in the  dirty work, and the sworn testimony before the  investigating commillcc appointed by the Government certainly implicates some of the Liberal  ward workers. The Liberals claim lo want to  have Scot I brought back. On Ihe olher hand,  Premier Bowser has slated lhal as he considers  Scott to be Lhe prime mover in the plugging, he  has had a warrant issued for his arrest, which  means lhat Scotl will nol come back lo British  Columbia lo give evidence, for to do so would  mean his imprisonment. He desires immunity if  he is lo be expected lo give evidence for the  Crown in order to catch tbe higher-ups. One  thing is certain: Scotl, if he is the leader in thc  dirty work, must have received large sums of  money from some source in order lo pay the  pluggers for lhe plugging. From whal source did  lhis money come? The people have a right to  know, no matter whose ox is goaded. We have  had enough disgraceful work in our Canadian  politics lo bring the blush of shame to lhe cheek  of every honesl voter, party or no party. What  we need in our politics is more character ancl less  blindly following the men in control. If wc are  lo gel this, electors of all parlies must gel together, determined to clean house. Integrity, reliability, self-sacrifice���������������������������lhal is what we lack and  what we need. Our parlies are prepared lo sacrifice every consideration of stale for interests of, quids and solemnly declare, "O  parly.   Brilish Columbia needs a house-cleaning.'fellow."  Something lo Remember War By  The following is from a speech  delivered at a recent welcome home  of a few returned B. C. heroes: "I  shall always remember this war, for  I have a finger missing, which I  shall carry to remind me that I left  il on lhe blood-stained iiclcl of distant France."

Why do promises ol" roads, elc, arise like  mushrooms on lhe eve of elections, if the people  have not laught the politicians lo believe lhal  voles are bought aud paid for by public patronage? and if patronage is such a bad thing why  are the dear people prepared lo sell themselves in  this manner?

Better order some now n(  Thursday, September 14, 1916  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY-  Dr. K. G. Macdonald Heard by  Large Audience in Opera House  Saturday evening last, Enderby  Opera House was comfortably filled  ���������������������������by a very good-natured audience  to hear Mr. Chas. Macdonald, Liberal Federal candidate for South  Vancouver, ancl Mr. K. C. Macdonald, Liberal candidate for lhe local  House, speak in* the interests of the  Liberal cause. Mr. Welsh, of Enderby spoke also, in the interest of  the Prohibition parly, and Miss Seymour made a short, telling appeal in  the inleresl of woman sull'rage. Mr.  Poison took the platform in the interest of the Conservative candidate, but spoke more in the .inleresl  of the Liberal cause.  Prohibilion Urged  In his  remarks in  favor of the  Prohibition   bill,   Mr.   Welsh  said  that while il was true the measure  is nol a strictly prohibitive measure, il goes as far as it is within the  province of British Columbia to go.  He   claimed   that  total   prohibition  was in the power of Ihe Dominion  parliament only, and that it was the  intention of lhe prohibitionists to  go as far as they can in the different  ���������������������������provinces ancl later lo appeal to lhe  Dominion  for couiitry-wiclfc prohibilion.   The main thing to be gained  by   the  local  prohibition  measure,  he said, is that il will do away with  the bar and lake oul of the business  the element of personal gain from  the sale of liquor.    This,  he was  sure, was a big step in the right  direction.   The bill, he said, is the  best  in   Canada,   embracing  as   it  does the best clauses in other prohibitive legislation in the Dominion  an 19 paragraphs from the present  liquor law in British Columbia.   He  did   not   feel   that   there  was   any  cause for complaint against the bill  bv prohibitionists, ancl thought the  best indication of its effectiveness  was to be found in the determined  fight being put up by tbe liquor men  to defeat the measure.    He  asked  the support of the electors' on the  grounds of national and community  betterment in all lines.  Woman Suffrage Appeal  Speaking for woman suffrage,  Miss Seymour made a particularly  lucid statement of'the case, aiicl  won . unstinted applause by her  closing remarks in answer to the  oft-repcated criticism from opponents of the measure, that there is no  reason" to believe the vote will improve the condition of the women  or the country, since the vote, has  not improved the condition of :the  men or the country to any appreciable measure. In answer lo lhis  criticism, Miss Seymour said, that,  while it had to be admitted that the  country did not show any marked  benefit from the men having unrestricted voting privileges, still,  this was the fault more of thc. men  lhan of the weakness of the privilege. Men, she said, had failed to  appreciate the value of suffrage,  ancl had and were abusing the privilege, bv organizing into party  camps ancl voting blindly for party  and not for:country. If the women  abused thc privilege in the same  way after it is granted, it would  be their own fault if they receive  bul little benefit from it, just as it  now is the fault of the men thai the  vote means so little to them. She  was certain this would not be thc  case with the women, for she felt  they would appreciate the respons-  ibil'itv of the privilege ancl would  make better use of the vote than do  the men. She earnestly asked thc  __suppqrt of the electors for the  woman" sitirr!fge~nieasurc."    "  K. C. Macdonald a Surprise  Friends  in  the audience of Mr.  , 1\. C. Macdonald,- political opponents as well as others, were most  agrecablv surprised at the able  manner in which he presented his  arguments, the lucidity, of his remarks and the breadth and depth  of his-prescntation as a whole.   Mr.  - -MacclonalcVwas:listened to intently  from start to finish, nnd WQiithc  good wishes of his audience it he  did nol win their votes. Greal improvement was recognized in the  man since hc lasl appeared as u  candidate for lhc sulVragc ol the  electors.  Mr. Macdonald attacked thc hind  policy of the McBridc-Bowser administration, and showed up* what  he severely'criticised as unjust and  illegal, the 'tying up of thousands  of acres of valuable agncultoral  land by the staking by power-or-  attorney clause placed in the land  Act by'the Provincial Government,  ancl which, he claimed, allowed  privileges under lhe Act which had  been declared by the supreme court  of British Columbia and the supreme court of Canada to be illegal  and unjust. Thc immense areas of  land grabbed by speculators under  this Act, hc said, had been exposed  bv the ministerial association ol  tlie Province, in the pamphlet entitled "The Crisis in B. C." He admitted that action had been brought  by onc of the ministers of the Government against the publishers of  lhc pamphlet for a libelous statement made in six lines "of'the pamphlet, and damages had been given  by the courl, bul, hc said, the  charges made in the pamphlet were  in the main correct and substantiated., by existing facts.  .He criticised the railway policy  of the administration, and referred  lo it as a vole-getting policy sprung  on the electors on the eve of an  election, citing as the first clforl in  this direction the Midway-Vernon  road which was proposed some  years ago, and upon which work  was aclualy started jusl out of Vernon on the eve of another election,  jusl as il i.s now heing started in almost the identical spot on what is  now to bc the Kamloops to Vernon  branch. He predicted lhal this  work would slop, just as the oilier  work had stopiied, immediately  after election day'  Mr. Macdonald criticised the action of the administration in endorsing the bonds of thc Canadian  Northern to the tune of ������������������35,000 a  mile, when it cost only $22,000 a  mile to construct thc Shuswap and  Okanagan line now running, and  built some twenty years ago.  Mr. Macdonald picked up thc  published platform of ihe Liberal  parly ancl read from il whal might  be expected of his party if he was  elected and thc Liberals were successful in snatching from lhc Conservatives the Government seats.  Hc pointed lo what he termed ihe  fatal mistakes of thc Conservative  Government owing lo lhc overwhelming Government majority in  the Provincial House, and hoped  that if the Liberals did win Ihey  would not have such an unwieldy  majority as the present government  has had. Hc pointed to lhe various  royal commissions (appointed by  the Government, costing $40,000  ancl -$50,000, ancl wanted to know  if- the net results did not consist  chiefly in giving soft, high-salaried  positions to parly workers. At a  cost of some $48,000 the administration brought down thc Farm  Credits Act, which was the net result, of the Agricultural* Commission's findings, when as long ago as  1900 he said the. Liberal party had  'as "onc of "lhc.planks in its plalform  cheap money for farmers based on  the New Zealand Act. r \ ;  /���������������������������Reference was made to the report  of-thc Indian .Commission,recently  made, at a cost of a quarter of a  million, dollars, and he quoted an  independent Conservative newspaper of Montreal which asked who  would read the report and who  would act on it and answered its  own 'questions with lhc onc word,  "nobody."  Mr. Macdonald pointed lo the  proven corruption in our political  'life, sparing neither Liberal nor  Conservative in his denunciation.  In Manitoba a Conservative premier  and his ministers are before the  criminal courts on charges of corruption; in Saskatchewan a Liberal  premier ancl his ministers are in  similar dillicully and some are paying the penally for their acts behind  prison bars. In Alberta we hear of  similar charges. And in British  Columbia what have.avc? Dr.Young,  Provincial secretary and minister  of education, wilh 105.000 shares of  coal stock given him for "political  consideration," yet permitted to  resign from ihe Government. And,  in our own constituency what do  -we-find,Jicuasked.=Vl_ic_JuinJstcLi__oL  agriculture caught in similar transactions in connection with thc  Colonv Farm and permitted io resign. 'But this is not the worst of it.  The party machine thrusts him  again forward and you are asked to  condone his action and return him  as vour representative.  Mr. Macdonald said il was not a  parly "'-question but a question of  morality, and it was up to the voters  to sav-whether or nol they are prepared lo do their part in helping in  the purifying process.  After brielly referring lo the effects of the patronage evil, Mr. Macdonald asked the electors to give  him 'their support, promising, if  elected, to serve the district honestly and without fear or favor. If  defeated he fell lhal he would be as  good a man as if elected. His record was before the people, and he  was not afraid of a single acl hc  had ever committed being laid bare  and o lie red no apologies for his  position as the candidate of his  party in the present campaign.  .Mr. Poison Makes His Choice  Mr. S. Poison took the platform in  the interest of the Conservative candidate. In so doing he spent some  time in explaining the intricacies of  his political position. He said he  was a Conscrvative-Liberal-Social-  ist���������������������������man of all parties. He said he  was pleased to he at the meeting  tonight. He enjoyed the freedom  and good spirit of it all, and contrasted it with lhe Conservative  meeting of the previous evening,  which he said reminded him of the  story of Daft Jimmy.* Jimmy was  one of a gathering of people attending* a meeting something like  that meeting. The speaker had  been talking some time when he  noticed everybody had gone to  sleep.   The speaker turned from his  Gents' Furnishings  topic and started scolding his  hearers, telling them he saw all of  them had gone to sleep except Daft  Jimmy. "Yes," piped up Jimmy,  "and if I wasn't Daft, I'd be asleep  also."  Naturally this story put his  Liberal hearers in good spirits, and  Mr. Poison continued. He hoped  the Government after the impending election, would have a strong  opposition, and he urged his hearers hot to let parly pull get  everybody. Machine conventions  nominate'certain men, not the men  wanted by Ihe people, and then  when it comes to voting, as parly  followers, you have lo vote for thc  machine-nominated man. He was  of the opinion lhal we need more  liberty in our politics. Mr. Poison  then went after Mr. Macdonald, saying lhal when he was superintendent of Indian reserves he failed to  establish a school on the Spallumcheen Indian' reserve. Hc had not  proceeded far on this tack when he  was interrupted by Mr. Worthington from llie audience, who intimated that Mr. Poison clid nol know  what he was talking about; said Air.  Macdonald went as far as to establish an Indian school and he, himself, for Mr. Macdonald, engaged a  teacher for the'rndian children.  This brought down thc house  Air. Poison complained that hc  could not be heard. "Tell the truth,  then," yelled a voice from the rear.  "I am telling the truth, so far as I  know, it," was the reply of the opposition speaker.  In a few minutes Air. Poison's al-  lolccl time had-expired, and he concluded his remarks by staling that  hc would hold a meeting in the  Opera House Wednesday evening,  when he would go into matters  more fully. He wanted lo say, however, that he had used common  sense so far as he had it ancl had  concluded to choose Mr. Ellison as  against Air. Macdonald, for hc believed we have too many professional men as our lawmakers ancl  not enough farmers.  Mr. Chas. Macdonald Closes  Thc hour was late when Air. Chas.  Alacdonald look the platform on behalf of the Liberal candidate. In  his opening remarks he electrified  his audience by neatly turning thc  concluding remarks-of Air. Poison  into capital for Air. Alacdonald. He  said he had listened intently to Air.  Poison as he briefly confessed having altered his politics ancl made  his choice for Air. Ellison. There  was no accounting for these,things,  he said. Men had made a similar  choice through all ages ancl shades  of politics. Two* thousand years  ago men-were asked.tloychoo.se be-,  tween thc good and lhe bad; and  they chose Barabbas instead of the  Savior of Alen.  Air. Alacdonald said'he was'very  much opposed to too strong party  allegiance, for Ihe reason that it  was sure lo bring lack of purity in  our politics. It matters not whether  it be Liberal or Conservative, large  majorities in legislative bodies are  certain to bring conditions such as  wc arc suffering from in many parts    of   Canada,   Brilish   Columbia   in-l ;      ~    "  eluded.   He said the people have a   '  Slrong  and   durable  Misses  and  habit of blaming thc politicians, but  Girls' school shoes, now on display,  so far as hc could see the fault lies (at Speers.  entirely will! lhe people themselves.  "Don't go about lhe country and say  all parlies are corrupt.    It is up lo  you."   When men do that which is  nol right in politics, he said, turn  Ihem out and keep them out.  Air. Macdonald explained the  Liberal side of the Vancouver plugging. He said the Liberals of Vancouver were the first to discover  ���������������������������there-=was-erooked--work=going-onf  and they were first to demand an  investigation. There was much in  connection wilh the plugging that  was  not  yet   understood,  he  said,  We sell only the best grade  of Coal Oil; Price, 3 Gallons  for   ONE   DOLLAR  WE CAN SUPPLY YOU WITH REPAIRS FOR ANY STOVE  OR FURNACE.

The cry of Mr. Brewster'and  Mr. Macdonald has been one of  nial-adminislralion agairst the Conservative Government, yeL when the  iven them al the  opportunity was  last session of the House lo expose  lhe corruption of lhc Government,  held hack.    It must come.    He did  nol fear Ihe results lo the hotels of  the   Province,  and   declared   when  these gentlemen found it utterly im-  thc bars are knocked out we shall j possible to place their finger upon a  hour.    He was assisted in llie Con-J have   holds   as  sen-alive interests by Mr. .1. A.Mac- Japan.    In answer lo the cry of the,    ,..,,.       -,,,,,,.        -,  edilor of Ihe Vernon News,  liquor user lhal his personal liberty ndminislration, Mr. Mackelvie said  ood   as   those   of!sinn|c case'..  I     Taking up the land policy of the  u el vie,  who presented in his accustomed  lucid manner the many progressive  measures passed by lhe'Bowser administration, on which the parly i.s  again asking llie1.sull'rage of the people ol" British Columbia. Mr. Ellison  was preceded by Miss Seymour  who again'made a telling appeal'on  behalf of woman suH'ragc.  Mr. Ellison Sure of  Victory  Mr.  Kllison referred at length to  Ihe   positive,   progressive   work   of  the Conservative administration, in  every phase of which  Mr.  Bowser  and   his  colleagues   exhibiled   that  unbounded faith in the counlry thai  all   men   of 'power and   leadership  must  have.     He  said   Ihe  Government had left no stone unturned in  an honest clforl to bring prosperity  lo the Province, and  when lhe depression came, followed by ihe war,  it    caught    the    Government    just  where  it  caught  the  counlry  as a  whole.   The work ol' extricating lhe  Province,    and    placing    business  back upon a tinner basis has gone  on month after month, and, he said,  we stand today on lhe threshold of  belter things.    The changed conditions have made it necessary to readjust  business  looking  to  greater  economy, and the task has not been  an   easy   onc.     But   the   work   has  been undertaken most courageously  by  the Premier and  his ministers,  and  he felt that the people of thc  Province   would   now   reassert   the  confidence heretofore shown in lhe  Government  and  would   return  Ihe  Conservative candidates  lo a man.  Hc  expressed   his  confidence  in  the eleclors of the North Okanagan,  and said he was sure of being again  elected   to   represent   lhis   district.  He told of thc  progress the Okanagan  has  made .since  he  was  lirsl.  elected   to   represent   it.     Eighteen  years  ago  lie  was  able  lo  gel   the  munificent   sum   of  -91,300   for  the  entire district, which Ihen extended  as far son 1 h as the boundary line.  Since ihen he had been able lo get  S2;"if>,000 for his constiluency.  He.advised his hearers lo steer  clear of the any proposed government that promises nothing more  lhan Ihe Liberals have (bus far  offered. He ciled the Agricultural  Aid Acl as one of the measures put  upon lhe statute books of the Province which musl bring greal good  to the farming induslry in particular and Ihe Province generally, for,  said lie, we cannot help the farmer  without helping every other industry in the Province. His advice lo  every  man  would   be  lo  buy  land  Premier McBride and his ministers  adopted' the  principle  that  il  was  belter to use the wild resources of  the  Province   in    lhe   building  of  roads and doing other development  >vork  in  order  lo   bring  inlo   lhc  Province   a   larger   population.     Il  was therefore decided to dispose of  thousands of *��������������������������� acres of* land in lhe  north of the Province and with the  proceeds'open up the,country so as  to make settlement possible. In the  working out of lhis policy the Government found that thousands of  acres of valuable land were being  held by speculators. From lhe sale  of these lands the' Government realized some $13,000,000. A balance  of $9,000,000 is still owing to lhe  is being rcslricled, Mr. Howe said  personal liberty did not consist in  doing as you like but as you ought.  Mr. Mackelvie Confident  Tn his opening remarks, Mr.  Mackelvie said lhat in all the years  that he had from time to time appeared before an Endcrhy audience  he never felt more justified in appealing for supnortfor Mr. Ellison  wilh a stronger degree of confidence lhan at this lime. .If wc had  in the Province a Liberal party, or  even a few men of outstanding  ability in the Liberal party, it  would bc different. If IheyyoH'cred.  anything of a constructive nature  Iheir claims for support might then  be listened to. But it must have occurred to all that not a single plank j owing lo the prevailing depression, (WANTED���������������������������A girl   for light housc-  of a plalform has been presented, it is possible thaVlhe Government]    Y-������������������VJV Wi,,=es\^10-   Apply imme-  ���������������������������   ���������������������������     ���������������������������   ' -j .    . i    cl lately    to    Mrs.    A.

These lands taken  back will bc reserved for soldiers  returning from lhe fronl, and in addition lo the land, money will be  raised to finance the soldiers while  lhcy are bringing their land under  cultivation.  Mr. Mackelvie answered many of  the charges made by Liberal speakers against the Government, all of  which he showed to bc wilhoul  merit. He went over again lhe particulars in connection with the  Vancouver plugging scandal, giving  the Conservative version as it. has  been frequently told.  In conclusion he asked the support of the eleclors for Mr. Price  Ellison on the strength of whal he  has done for this constituency in  the ycars thai are passed. The  Colony Farm transaction, he said,  could he put down as a .mistake, on  the part of Mr. Ellison. The benefits we have received at his hands  as our representative at. Victoria,  should outweigh- the mistake by  him made.

Perhaps be thinks it i.s fashionable  lo copy Rev. Billy Sunday, but I  wish lo stale thai there is al least  one man who i.s sober, always has  been sober, and in no way, manner  or form connected with Ihe liquor  business, who will vote against lhe  said bill, because I do not believe il  will slop the drinking man or  woman from having all or more  lhan is good for them, and for various other reasons which would lake  up too much of your valuable space  to explain in full.
