Array I"V  -r** v-'  W  77  Enderby, B. C., August 24, 1916  AND      WALKER'S      WEEKLY  Vol. 9; No. 26;. Whole No. 446  Premier Bowser Explains the Policy  of His Constructive Government  Enderby Opera House was well  filled Jast Saturday afternoon to  hear Premier Bowser Jay down the  policy of his Government, ancl the  meeting was all that could be  wished, particularly from a Conservative view point. The Premier  won many friends because of his  clear-cut argument and straight-  from-the-shouldcr  punch.  . Woman's Suffrage in Favor  Preceding thc Premier's address,  Miss Seymour spoke in favor'of the  suffrage Act, ancl Mr. Price Ellison  briefly addressed thc gathering on  the merits of his candidacy. In her  remarks on Woman's Suffrage,  Miss 'Seymour earnestly asked thc  electors to support the movement,  believing that  in  being  given the  vole women would received the one  essential privilege- that would fit  them for life ancl to meet all concli-  j</< lions which weigh so heavily.upon  them. She said that in all slates to  lhe south of us.where the women  had been given the vote, Ihey had  used the: privilege, well, and had  raised the' standard of the ballot.  -���������������������������-' True democracy could never come  with onc half the commimily cut  oil' from thc right of having a voice  -.in- lhc Government of the country.  The ballot, she said, would act' as  an insurance against future catastrophic- in thc home, where war  conditions had made woman so supreme, and left upon her shoulder  the responsibilities of raising the  family of children left lo her. She  believed the men of this district  would recognize thc noble work  being performed by the women and  would give their support Id the  suffrage measure on September 14.  The heartiest applause of the meeting was given Miss Seymour at the  close of her. address. .  confidence in the future and as a  businessman having a hand upon  the throttle of the engine of public  business .and knowing every curve  in the road now strewn with clifli-  cult problems, yet with full confidence in his own ability and thc  ability of his colleagues to overcome them.  - Mr. Bowser said this was lhe first  time he had had the honor of having   a   distinguished    advocate  of  the platform  his  Woman's  at any ol  Roads and Bridge Promised  In his remarks, Mr. Ellison told  of his pioneer experiences some 17  ycars ago when he first asked the  electors of the Okanagan to support  him as' a candidate for legislative  honors. He told of the work he had  done from lhat clay to this in the  interest of his constituency, ancl  pointed to'the pasl as an augury of  ���������������������������"thc-ftitiire-r^WhaMrc^hail^clone^for  the dislrict he would continue to  do, if again chosen to represent thc  North Okanagan. Hc said hc had  driven over the Mabel Lake road  a few days previous for the first  lime, and heWas free to admit that  there was room for improvement.  He assured his hearers that he was  going to see lhat these improvements were made. He also promised jiroad would be built up King  Fisher creek to" timber limits bf the  Okanagan Saw Mills, where this  company expects this year to cut  15,000,000 feet of logs. He further  promised a new bridge at the Fortune crossing, ancl hc promised,  too, that he would do all in his  power lo make it possible for thc  Government and the people to deal  with thc Indians in the matter of  roads, etc., in a way that would  make results possible.  Mr. Ellison wished to deny thc  statement, which he said, originated here, that there was any difference between himself ancl the ministers of the Government. He. was  in accord with Premier Bowser in  all he has undertaken, ancl there is  now, and had always been, the utmost harmony prevailing between  them. He warned the electors of  the folly of electing the Liberal  candidate, who would be in opposition with the Government and  therefore would not be able to accomplish anything for the district.  He was sure he was going lo be  elected and wanted all to lend their  support ancl be on lhc winning side.  Premier Bowser Well Received  Premier Bowser was well received on arising. It was has first  opportunity to address the electors  of Enderby, and many in thc audience heard him for the first time.  The impression created was most  favorable.   The Premier spoke with I  Suffrage on  meetings in the Pro  vince. He had noticed in his meetings throughout the Province that  there were more women present  lhan in any previous campaign,  clue, no doubt, to the fact lhat thc  suffrage question was up this time  lo be voted upon by thc electors.  This question, he said, had been  submitted to a vole of the people  just as had been The question of  Prohibition. Both questions were  submitted without party bias, ancl  neither-question was receiving support, as a party issue. Should both  or either bc carried by the electors," thc Government will al once  put them into force in compliance  with-the Acts governing.  Speaking briefly of the" candidature of Mr. Ellison, Mr. Bowser said  they -had worked together -as ministers of the Government, ancl had  always "been," ancl were today, in  full accord. There was no onc before the electors in lhis campaign  who he- would "rather sec elected  than his old friend and the district's old friend, Mr. Ellison.  Mr. Bowser eulogized lhe work  of his predecessor as leader, Sir  Richard McBride. His railway  policy, he said, had been criticised,  but he recalled lo thc electors' mind  that Sir Riclard had gone to thc  people with that railway policy ancl  had received the people's endorsement before proceeding. It was not  fair now to condemn' thc carrying  out of the policy the people asked  for. Nothing was so much needed  in this Province as population and  development, and there was nothing more vital to bolh population  ancl development than railways.  Our great areas of timber; our agriculture, our mines, our fisheries,  all are dependent upon increased  -popuIation=-ancWncrcasccl=-pro(luG-  tion, and increased production can  not be aided so much in any other  way than oy adequate railway facilities. These the Government under Sir Richard McBride, had undertaken to provide.  What the Province now needs is  money from without to aid in the  development of our latent industries, ancl it was fell that we should  have a man of Sir Richard's type as  our representative in thc money  market of the world, ancl for this  reason, Sir Richard transferred his  efforts   from   Victoria   to   London,  where he is doing excellent work  in the interest of British Columbia.  Agricultural Loans  Premier Bowser dealt with, the  Agricultural Credits Act, under  which aid to farmers is now being  given. To fully develop the agricultural possibilities of the Province, Mr. Bowser said, it had been  decided to separate thc portfolios  of finance and agriculture, and he  had called as head of thc agricultural department, Mr. Manson, a  man of good, sound sense, and under his direction this department is  now rendering such aid as the Government can give. Mr. Bowser said  thc Government did not put the Aid  to Farmers Act into force earlier  for the very good reason lhat the  money required could not bc borrowed earlier at a figure that would  permit its being loaned to the farmers at a rate of interest lhat was  low enough to do good. Now, the  Government has borrowed $1,000,-  000, and is reloaning it to the farmers at (i 1-2 per cent. It was believed that this measure would result in great good to agricullurc.  Already. $08,000 has been loaned  lo farmers under thc Aid Act, the  average individual loan being $2,-  500.    "We want to help the small  farmer who cannot borrow in any  other way," concluded thc Premier.  "We arc honestly trying to help;  we wanL.to put this money out on  the farm lands of the Province ancl  we want lo put it out wherc il will  do lhe mosl good."  Other Important Measures  The Premier Ihen discussed ihe  Laborer's Compensation Act, which  he characterized as ihe most perfect legislation now elfcclive. Mc  spoke of the Government's aid to  the mining industry, where, as aid  to the prospector, the Government  has already given $200,000 for  trails roads ,and bridges. . In addition to this aid, the Government  has appropriated $24,000 to provide an expert'mining engineer to  visit any prospect located by a  miner and make a report on same.  Thc Premier explained the Government's land policy, ancl whal it  was doing to aid thc returned soldier. The Province was prepared  lo give thcland, but it was thought  lo be most unfair'to put the soldier  upon lhc land without some financial or olher assistance, and now  the Province i.s taking thc matter up  with the Dominion Government in'  the hope of providing'financial-assistance as well.        -" '    ,"'"*-  The, shipbuilding- policy .61". the  Government - was explained. Already, he.said, thercare'len-ships  ,of 2000 tons each now in the course  of construction "at*, thc. coast, and  onc steel.ship. -..These;,ship,s.areJ>e-.  ing built by a priva'le shipbuilding  company. ��������������������������� All thc Government  guarantees is lo pay a bonus to the  builders of 15 per cent, provided if,  onc year after the war, they are nol  paying the builders 15. per cent, jn  freight tariffs, etc.  The Premier explained that he  had carried out every measure he  proposed in his initial statement of  policy. All these constructive  measures arc now in effect, and'it  is his determination lo press on  with the fuller development of Ihe  measures. British Columbia .has  turned the corner; whal is now required i.s faith in the future.  The Folicg of the Opposition  Thc Premier here took occasion  to renly to his critics on the Opposition. He wanted his hearers to  remember lhal his opponent, Mr.  Brewster, came forward with no  policy to offer. Hc was carrying on  a campaign preaching^ blue rim1  aiitni^s I rue I i o n," a n d" hc challenged"  anvone to show a single line in the  published policy of thc Opposition  which was constructive. Hc said  that of the 75 bills put through by  the Government af thc last session  of the legislature only three were  opposed bv Mr. Brewster. These  were thc shipbuilding bill, the suffrage bill and the bill extending thc  life of Parliament. Ancl yet, on thc  platform, Mr. Brewster has. made  the most bitter attacks on thc Government.The Premier reviewed the  fight made oy Mr. Brewster under  tlie writ issued hy him against thc  Government. He said he was determined to keep lhc house in session to permit the investigation of  certain charges made by lhc Opposition���������������������������charges of corruption���������������������������not  one of which was. proved by the investigation.  Facts About the Pluggers  Mr.* Bowser then took up the  plugging charges against thc Liberal leaders in Vancouver, and hc  produced facts and figures to show  what was proved by the investigation. He showed that in all 15,335  ballots were cast on election clay,  in Vancouver, Feb. 20,*'191(5.' Of  these the Liberal candidate, M. A.  McDonald, received 0,493 ancl the  Conservative candidate, Hon. C. E.  Tisdall, received. 5,497. This was  thc largest poll ever recorded in  the citv of Vancouver. Owing to  the war there had also come a  period of depression, which had  depopulated the cily to a. certain  extent, bul at the court of revision  both political parlies agreed not to  strike from thc voters' list thc name  of anv man who might possibly  have enlisted. Consequently lhere  were on the voters' list used in thc  by-election thc names of many ab-  News Notes of Enderby and District  Briefly Told for Busy Readers  "Mrs. J. D.

Better order some now  i Thursday, August 24, 1916,  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  THE RIGHT KIND OF LOVE  Edward. Goldbeck, in the Chicago Tribune, recently wrote five short stories wilh a remarkable  human touch, lhc concluding thought of each is,  "Is thai lhc-right kind of Jove?" Thc first of thc  series appears below:  "Tloword loved Elbe). He loved her rapturously. A monlh ago he had seen her for lhe iirsl  lime and his first words had been: "By Jove, whal  a stunner!" This was a monlh ago and now lhcy  had already been married for forly-cighl hours.  Things had developed ralher quickly, but why  should lhcy have wailed? Bolh were rich, ancl  Howard, as iI.ought lo bc, was much richer. Thc  parents had agreed right away, so lhcy had  hustled a lillle.  Now lhcy were silling in lhc dining room of  lhc Grand "Hotel, Paris, and Elhcl looked ravishing. Thc Titian blonde of her hair and these big  brown eyes with lhcir almost pleading softness  made, indeed, a "Wonderful combination. Frenchmen arc connoisseurs of feminine beauty, and  Elhcl fell elated by lhe atmosphere of secret bom-'  age which she divined around her. She looked to  lhis and lo lhal table because she liked to sec  foreigners, and from everywhere genllemen,  young and old, handsome and ugly, stared at her  "wilh unveiled admiration. She could nol help  smiling a lillle until she caught a glance, which  seemed to her a poisoned arrow, from a lady al  the next table. Then she looked down a I her plate  and only occasionally al her husband, who was  silling across from-her.  Howard was nervous. These foreigners had  really abominable manners. How dared lhcy  stare at a woman like lhal. Hc could sec in lhc  mirror lhal one of lhc gentlemen hardly had lime  lo cat, not lo lose any gesture of Tlhcl's. And she  seemed lo enjoy lhal, lo encourage these impudent glances. He suffered all the tortures of hell  and was glad when the dinner was over and lhcy  could'rclirc lo lhcir suite to dress for the'theatre  _ The honest editor is sometimes found, but his  life is one of excitement. If he exposes the crooks  and shysters in private or public life, he runs a  fearful risk of being knocked down on the street  and concentrated 0 lo 1.    If hc tells lhc Irulh  aboul church and slate all thc phonographic records  of  autocratic   despotism   and   theological  tyranny Avill boycott him, and sing in one vindictive howl, Crucify him! crucify him!   lie has  told lhe Irulh aboul our masters and musl nol  live!    So lhe editor who desires lo live without  war and bloodshed should nol expose lhe evil and  unlawful doings of political grafters, legal shysters,   municipal   pimps,   crooked   merchanls   or  psalm-singing   hypocrites.     He  should  sup   his  gruel in silence, and keep his pen oul of nilric  acid, ancf watch the shark skin the sucker, and  lhe wolf cat the lamb, without putting forth an  clforl lo protect lhc innocent and save lhe weak  from destruction.   Thc,spineless editor never gels  a bloody nose, or any hoquels.   Woe lo the people  who will nol uphold and defend a fearless, trenchant and Irulhful writer.   They will clank lhcir  chains in slavery and live upon the crumbs lhal  fail from lhc tables of despots, tyrants and bulldozers.   Wc would rather be a frog and live upon  the green scum of a swamp, lhan supinely sit and  not use our pen in defence of liberty and juslicc.  Thc good have nothing lo conceal, and have only  admiration for a trenchant editor.   It is only lhe  sneaking,   cowardly,    dishonorable,   back-biting  and  blackmailing  human   curs   lhal   howl  and  writhe in mental agony when the editorial harpoon tears away lhcir masks, exposing lhcir detestable acts to the gaze of an outraged and indignant world.���������������������������Greenwood Ledge.

"0 Elhcl, if you  knew whal I have gone through during lhis last  hour!   It was awful."  "But, tell mc, please, what have I cloned'    '  "Nothing, it is only your beauty.

She disengaged herself gently, and  while she left her right hand in his, she covered  her eyes wilh her left and said in subdued voice:  "You love mc, bul as your properly, as your  slave.   Is lhal lhc right kind of love?"  A HARD TRAIL  In Ihesc days of dollar worship, outward show  and superstition, lhc honest man finds his trail  full of thorns. If a parson is honest and speaks  lhc Irulh as lie sees il. in opposition lo the rules  of his church, he will bc tried for heresy, and receive his marching orders.  If a lawyer tries lo be honest and tells his  clients lhcy cannol win, lhcy will go lo a shyster  who will lake any case for money, ancl use-any  means lo win, even lo the hiring of skillful liars  for he witness box.  If an honest doctor tells a palicnt thai there is  nothing the mailer, except imagination, lhal  patient" will often hike away to some dishonorable  medico who will humor his notions, fill him wilh  bread and waler pills, and gel his money.  If a 'merchant keeps thc sand oul of his sugar  and docs not measure his thumb wilh lhe collon,  some of. his customers will go where lhcy  cheated, because lhc prices are seemingly lowei  The show or circus nearly always uses lying  advertising, imbued evidently with lhc idea that  lying is necessary in order lo draw the crowd  and lill the house.  Sonic women cheat extensively with paint  powder and padding. They wish to pass for  cream when they are only skimmed milk. To  have a woman tell her correct age, between 20  and 60, is'asking too much of a sex skilled to lhe  utmost in the nrt of deception. After 60 we have  known some women who added years instead of  subtracting them from lhcir age. Why all lhis  feminine deception? Thc fault ol* lhe men, lhe  ladies sing in chorus.  Thc politician who assays 100 per cent in honesty has not yet been discovered, because of lhc  selfish and grafting nature of voters. Any politician who is lhe personification of honor and  high ideals cannol be elected in lhis age of dollar  chasers.  Router's representative- has received some interesting details of the discoveries made in Central Asia by Sir Aurcl Stein, who' has reached  ��������������������������� England on the conclusion of a two and a half  years' journey undertaken by order of lhe Government-of India, through Eastern Turkestan,  and along thc Pcrso,Afghan border. In endeavoring lo find new routes hc followed a line of march  lo thc Pamirs, which lock him across Darcl and  Tangir, a territory in the Hindukush, never before visited hy Europeans.. - .    .    *  Aflcr   crossing  into" Chinese   Turkestan,-  Sir  Aurcl Stein made, his may as rapidly as possible  towards lhc-desert,- round lhc dricd-up Lop Nor,  .visiting on" his way a.sand-buried old,site in the  Taklamakan",desert.    He  discovered  numerous  quantities of ancient.documents written "on wood  and in an early Indian language dating from the  third century A.D.   Among other discoveries' at  the same'desert site'was" ii large anci'chV orchard,-  slill showing wilh uncanny clearness' lhc elaborate arrangement of fruil trees and vines carried  over trellis, all dead.    Thc sclllcmcnl had been  abandoned close on 1,700 ycars ago.

Bayley  Real   Meaning   of   Prohibition  Act to Organized Labor  Many false statements were made  by   lir.  \V.   I).   Bayley,  a   so-called  labor   leader  of   Winnipeg,   during  his recent four of the Province in  behalf of the  People's  Prohibition  Party.   A denial was nol enleredto  these   statements   at   thc   time   because   it   was  thought   desirable to  nail these falsehoods in such a convincing   manner   as   lo   show   the  workingmen of British Columbia in  a conclusive manner lhat lhe campaign oratory and literature of Mr.  Bayley was not trustworthy.    This  evidence   i.s    now    at    hand,   and  should  be read  by every working-  man  of British   Columbia.    Il outlines  in   a  convincing  manner  the  lengths  lo  which   Prohibilion   orators  and   writers  have  gone  in  an  elfort   lo   swing   Ihe   workingmeirs  vole of  Brilish  Columbia   in   favor  of lhc Prohibition Acl.  Thc campaign of falsehood and  misleading statements which has  been carried on among the workingmen of British Columbia by the  Prohibitionists can only bc excused by the fact lhat they realize  lhal the condemnation of lhc B. C.  -Iii-ohil>ition--Ac-Ub-y^-.suc-lwsli:ong_la  bor organizations as thc Trades and  Labor Councils of Vancouver, Victoria, New Westminster and Prince  Bupert outlines a position which il  i.s dillicull to allack by fair  methods.  One of "Mr. Bayley's statements,  made from the plalform while at  lhc coast, and now framed in literature which is being ci'r'culaled"by  Prohibitionists, i.s lo lhe ell'ecl that  |H,- -personally- o tiered Ho- help -Ihe  agent of Ihe Bartenders' Union in  Winnipeg lo lind employment after  Manitoba went dry. lie was told  lhal Ihe bartenders were till lixed,  and lhal Ihe agcnl of llie t'nion had  gone back lo his job wilh Ihe Barbers' I'nioii. The bartenders  were the only trade lhal were  really alfecled by Ihe Prohibilion  Acl. and all of them had gone lo  work al other trades.  A copy of lhis slalemenl and the  campaign lileralure was sent to Mr.  F. \V. '.MeGill, business agent for  lhe Bartenders' Union at Winnipeg. Iminedialcly upon ils receipt  Mr. McCill sent a reply which  brands lhe statement as absolutely  false. In direct denial of Mr. Bay-  ley's statement his letter read as  follows:  "I am only loo pleased lo gel  al one of Ihem fakers who are  all llie time trying lo exploit  lhe labor man when Ihey think  they can gel away wilh il. The  statement of Mr*. Bayley lhat  lie oll'ered lo assisl mc in getting a job is untrue, as i.s his  .slalemenl lhal I am working  for llie Barbers' I'nioii.

In spile of the depopulation lhere were 15,3:35, voles cast in  10I(i, or 5,820 more voles than the  0.500 cast in 1012 in the height of  the boom.  II was proved al the investigation  llial preparations extending over a  period of months were made in  Vancouver for Ihe impersonation of  at least 5,000, and. probably more,  of lhe numerous absentees. II  showed, further, lhal several hundred** men-'from Seattle, as well as  an-equally--'uncertain number from  lhe .waterfront of.Vancouver, did  impersonate at������������������ the by-election in  behalf of Mr. Macdonald, receiving  inmost cases $10. a head for lhcir  services. Thc investigation showed  thai, while lhc; Committee was  searching for evidence, attempts  were made in behalf of lhe Liberals  to bribe witnesses lo swear lhat  lhcy plugged in behalf of Mr. Tisdall instead of Mr. Macdonald. II  showed that JohnT. Scott, the  most -'.desired-..witness of all, when  summoned, went lo Seattle and remained thcre/luring lhe rest of the  inquiry, except for- one day, when  he sneaked to Victoria lo visit Mr.  Brewster and -Mr..Macdonald, and  it showed .that-telephonic communication was kepi tip between Scott  and Macdonald all through the inquiry. Thc inquiry showed lhal  5,000 identification cards were issued to the pluggers, showing each  under what name hc should vole,  number, address, business or occupation, and in what ward he should  vole. It was shown thai some of  these pluggers voted, as many as  seven limes.  Premier Bowser was bandied  by Liberal friends just enough lo  keep him al his best, and his rapid-  fire answers to questions asked  greatly pleased llie Conservatives  present, who were in the majority.  EVAPORATOR TROUBLES  The evaporator plants at Armstrong and Vernon are experiencing  diilicully this season getting a lineup on vegetables. Last season ihey  ur-!ccl farmers lo plant heavily of  carrots, potatoes, etc.. promising to  laice all lhe farmers could produce.  They took them, but at a price far  below what the farmers I houghI  was a fair price. This year the  farmers wanted lo know the price  before Ihcy would olanl. Failing  to. agree on a price, Ihe farmers declined lo planl, ancl now there i.s  every promise of a short supply  for llie evaporators.  It i.s unfortunate that such a condition should arise, for Ihe dislrict  needs Ihe evaporators and the evaporators need the produce. But little  blame can be .allached to lhe farmers. It is only a fair business proposition that Ihey^should know in  advance what price they are lo receive for their produce, if they are  lo rtti.se it for lhe evaporator, ancl  the price should bc a living price.  As we understand il, there is a wide  margin between whal lhe evaporators pay the farmers and the selling price of lhe evaporated product  ���������������������������large enough to permit the company lo make a price in advance to  the farmers. *  FINISH APPIiAISING  Messrs.

With reference to The allilucle of  Manitoba Prohibitionists _ toward  TiTijrrxji"ni7l"*TyeTl"_i"ii_t1*i"Tr".lt^  Mr. MeGill says lhal during the  Prohibition campaign the Social  Service   Council   laid   greal   stress  on the handsome manner in which  Ihey    would    provide   employment  for lhis class of labor, should  the!  workingmen   support   tlie   Prohibi-|  lion Act.   After the Piohibilion Act j  passed,   however,   the   members  of*  the   council    evidently    forgot   all i  abou ft Imr promises, for Ijicy have  done   absolutely   nothing   to   assist  these men in securing work.    The  situation   with   reference   lo   these  men,   Mr.   McCill   describes  as   deplorable.     Over   500   clerks   were  thrown   out  of  employment   when  the   Manitoba    liquor  stores    were  closed, and wilh all these men looking  for  work,  lhe  position ,of the  bartender was such as placed  him  al a decided disadvantage.  Willi reference lo Mr. 'Bayley's  slalemenl lhat he was a Labor  candidate for lhe Manitoba legislature. Mr. McCill says lhal he was  lhe only person that recognized  himself as a Labor candidate for  llie Manitoba legislature.There were  three trade unionists on his committee bid when he put prohibition  in his platform lhcy told him Ihey  could nol serve. As a result, he  slipped Ihe prohibition plank oil'  his plalform, and never mentioned  the .subject during his campaign.  Mr. McCill's teller contains other  criticisms of Mr. Bayley's statements made on the Cotisl, these being of lhe same character as the  above denial. In view of the above  direct .slalemenl, il would be well  for the workingmen of Brilish  Columbia lo weigh Mr. Bayley's  campaign oralorv and lileralure in  behalf of lhe B. C.
