Tf  vou missed lhe Mutual Maslerplay  it was your loss. Tt was one of the  best. It is promised thai lhc master-  play for next Saturday evening will  bc equally good. If its name i.s any  indication of quality you will nol  care to miss it. It i.s called "Rum-  nclslillskin," and it is accompanied  by the comedy "Curing Cissy."  There was nol r������������������. disappointed  person in lhe audience lhal heard  the Gwcnt Welsh Singers at the  Opera House Mondav evening. Each  number seemed lo be more appreciated than lhe last, and when the  performance was ended il was not  easy to decide which of thc numbers was the best. "Excelsior" was  never sung belleiyand the "Hallelujah* Chorus" was sublime.  IT. T. Johnson, interested in the  Opera House wilh Mr. Bobb, came  in from Princeton "Wednesday evening on business, and will remain a  few days.  The school children's concert  given at Grindrod school last Friday evening proved most satisfactory,' though, the attendance was  not as large as usual owing io the  inclement weather. Thc concert  and dance netted $27.65 I'or ihe  Belgian children's relief fund of the  school.  The Kelowna Opera House, Law-  son's double store, Muirhead's shoe  store, Crawford's book store, the  storage warehouse of the "Mason &  Risch Piano Co., Odd Fellows' and  Freemansons' hall, Raymer's public  hall and a large number of ollices  and. dwelling rooms were completely demolished by fire which  swept the business section of Kelowna one night last week.  Reginald Crane writes from Toronto: "Don'l fail to see "The  Birth of a Nation5' when it comes to  lhc Opera House. I saw il here and  it was simply wonderful. The music  alone was worth going to hear. Il  has the name of. being the greatest  picture play ever, shown here. It  ran for about' two months." -It  will.be at lhc Opera House tonight.  The price of admission is the same  as .was .charged* elsewhere .on- ,its  first -appearance���������������������������:$1.50V'reserved,  ������������������1.00 rush, and 50c for-children.  The company advertises an orchestra of. 20 pieces, and lhe music  is said lo be marvelous. A monster  harp* lakes the place of, the piano  in thc orchestra.'  HOSPITAL BOARD MEETING  The public meeting /called for  Tuesday evening, at the City Hall,  to hear-the report of thc Hospital  Board of its stewardship .the pasl  year, did not materialize to any appreciable 'extent. However, the  half-dozen citizens who were present in addition to thc board took'  occasion to express their appreciation lo'the board of the able  manner in which the business of  the pasl year had been handled,  and it was lhe unanimous wish of  theMneeting that the present board  continue do hold ollice until thc  objectynofw underway_of having the  "board durrincorporat^riirtTiraiircdr  This will require but- a short time,  the inlenlion being to have lhe incorporation papers Ihroutrh so as to  be ready for the municipal election  in January, when il i.s proposed to  have two members elected lo the  board bv lhe electorate of ihe cily,  Iwo to be named by the incoming  cily council and two by thc Provincial government, as prescribed  in the Hospital Aid Act.    ,  Thc report of the secretary of thc  board showed the lolal receipts for  the vear amounted to $721.55. Of  this'sum, lhc amount of $-1*18.05  was by private contributions from  the people of thc dislrict. and the  sum of $272.00 from entertainments  given in aid of the hospilal. The  expenditures for the year were as  follows: Salary lo housekeeper,  ������������������312; renl, $180; .additional J'urn-  shings for new building, 8177-80;  improvements to building, $3*1.02;  cleaning of buildina, $10.50; cost  of entertainments, $0.25; leaving a  balance on hand of 98 cents, ft  was explained that there was the  housekeeper's salary from Ocl. 1st  vcl unpaid, and lhc hall rent for  'the last whist drive together with a  bill of 81.75 for printing.  Miss Gibbs, who has so generously come to the aid of lhc hospital in the past, stated that in view  of her not having been able lo aid  in the whist drives, she wished to  bc permitted to assume the liabilities or the board in connection  therewith.

Nol that fruil  raising is to be pushed aside or  oven negdected, bul the feeling of  the district is thai they must have  lore lhan I'ruil growing as a per-  aancnl Ihing.  Thc Vernon District Livestock  Association recently has been organized, and the association received its first consignment of dairy  stock from Eastern Canada a week  or len days ago. The shipment consisted of Iwo carloads, fifty-four  head in all, brought from Ontario.  They came through in fine order.  So satisfactory, in fact, was the appearance of this stock lhat additional orders have been placed in  lhe same quarter, .and already another carload has passed down thc  Valley.      ���������������������������   -     ���������������������������  WILSON RE-ELECTED  The latest reports giving the results of the, presidential election,  held on Tuesday, indicate that President Wilson has been re-elected by  a small majority. He is given 14 of  a majority .in .lhc. electoral college,  ���������������������������.recording to one report, while another says lhal many of the stales  are in thc doubtful list. .Both-sides  are claiming-victory, and it is possible ii will be several days before  the-election'of PresklcntAVilson is  conceded by. thc<Republican forces.

VERNON BU YING LI VE STOCK  Some days ago, Mr. Geo. Heggie,  manager of Ihe Belgian Syndicate  properly at Vernon, told The Press  of*lhe great progress that has been  made on that estate in the pasl few  years���������������������������since he inauguraled the  live stock idea in place of Ihe land  selling idea. He told of the success  he had with sheep, which were the  first lo be taken on. It was this  sudden change from the land-selling idea to sheep raising thai saved  the day I'or lhe big land syndicate  ���������������������������as well as for many others.  From sheet), Manager Heggie  branched oul into hogs and callle.  Everv slock venture inaugurated  by him has proved piofilable for  llie compnnv, and today he says he  is nol Irving lo sell land and docs  not care to.

On the strength of the promise then '  made, lhe city called off the delinquent tax sale advertised for Oct.  13th. Now the City Council finds  itself up against the proposition ol"  collecting Uicse delinquent taxes by  process of the courts.  At a meeting of the Council Tues:  day evening it was decided to proceed against lhe delinquent owners,  at thc same lime giving them all the  lime possible, but with the uuder,: ���������������������������  standing-that the business musl be  closed up before the end of ,the -  present Council's term.

If the farmers of llie Enderby district would  make lhis-lhc slogan for ncxl year���������������������������and back il  up wilh determination and elbow grease���������������������������we  would see a remarkable change for llie better in  our general condilions. Years ago���������������������������when wheal  was selling al (30c and 80c a bushel, the Tanners  of this district produced a large amount of wheat.  In one season, lhc local Hour mill bought 300 tons  of wheal from Hie Slepney ranch alone. Today,  with wheat selling as high as $1.80 and $1.90 a  bushel, il is witlwliilicuily lhat (300 or 800 tons  are to be found throughout lhc Okanagan Valley.  Admitting lhal lhis dislrict is not, primarily, a  wheal dislrict, owing lo its limited acreage, and  is much heller adapted to dairying and truck  farming, slill, wilh wheat selling al thc high  prices prevailing, and which arc almost certain  lo prevail another season or Iwo, lhere could not  be oll'ercd a bcLler opportunity for our farmers  lo gel into the game and come out with a hank  roll. There is not a heller district under the  sun than we have���������������������������'right here in lhe vicinity of  Enderbv. All we require is more production. No  ��������������������������� mailer-how.high.'the prices go for farm produce,  or how.bright lhe future demand, lhis i.s not go-  ^iirg^lcHicl|)^theV1ariiHM*^who-has-litlle-oi^nolhing_  lo sell. The prosperous farmer is lie who has  something to sell. Any other kind is simply a  burden bearer���������������������������and the burden a mortgage.  Why nol boost the dislrict instead of decrying  ils condilions ? Condilions could nol.be better,  provided we were prepared lo lake advantage of  Ihem and had lhe courage lo gel after lhe business offering. The 'market today'is crying for  __ca.r_lo.ads Jlllyvh(';iJ, ea 11 le, hogs, j>heep, wool, a nd  'commodities of lhis sort, llie cryisrTmlimiled  and lhe prices higher Hum Ihey have been in  half a cenlury or more. Bul we cannol go after  lhis business and capture il with a basket of eggs  and a roll ol* buller. l.'nlil we can see llie possibilities open lo lhis district and are prepared lo  go into il on a scale large; enough lo make Ihesc  possihililes bud inlo realities we cannol hope lo  reap the benelils of war conditions which are  bringing such prosperity lo other districts.  A Winnipeg statistician figures it oul lhal lhe  Canadian dollar has shrunk lo (17 cents during the  present war. Increases in prices are in many  eases absolutely staggering. For instance, .potatoes have gone up 17:1 per cent, when bought by  the peek. Olher increases are: Bread, 80 per cent;  milk. 20 per cenl; buller nO per cent; Hour 61  per cent; canned slulf, from 40 to 50 per cenl.  TIME TO MAKE A NEW START  Each fall as the winler draws near rumors  dark and drear fasten themslves upon the spirits  of lhe people. The saw mill i.s going lo close  down, will not operate next year; no logging will  he done; no logs will be bought, and similar  reports ad nauseam. Then, when llie first snow  comes, llie atmosphere clears, everybody looks  happy; coals are pulled oil" and everybody gels  busy, and lo, the winler i.s gone and spring comes  dancing round the corner with a grist for the  saws to keep them busy the whole season long.  It reminds onc of' boyhood experiences at the  old swimming hole. We'd sit around at lhe edge  of lhe pool, shivering at the thought of how cold  lhe water was. And of all the direful things lhat  were going to happen, those boys could tell 'em,  lioneslinjun! Death by drowning for going in too  soon aflcr eating was sure lo happen. Then  some fellow would dare anolhcr, and in he'd go  ���������������������������if pushed in. And in a moment thc dismal aspect of the pool was changed inlo one of joyous  hilarity. "Oh, Skin-nay, come in, the water's line,"  rang out from a dozen throats.  The coming of each winter sees a repetition of  these feelings, these fears and follies. We are now  in the midst of another moonshine period, and  goblins with storm-blue wings and somber eyes  arc held up to the gaze to "put lea r. into the unsophisticated. Soon these reports will have disappeared and lhe winter will find every man of the  ew remaining employed at full lime.  Ncxl season, and thc present winter season,  should be the busiest this district has experienced  in its history. The demand for every Ihing wc can  produce is way in excess of normal, and prices arc  climbing out of sight. If this dislrict docs not experience a prosperous season next year, wc, the  residents of lhc dislrict, can blame nobody but  ourselves. If we had a hundred fold more of our  products lo sell right now, wc should have no  dillicully in disposing of.it, and at prices that  would give every farmer and businessman a bank  roll!   Let's get busy, Neighbor; it's up to us !  More than onc million bushels of Canadian  wheal were purchased last week at lhc Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce by Minnesota milling  and elevator interests, al lower prices, freight and  duty paid, than was being paid for American  raised wheat of the same quality. The first Canadian import business of any size developed when  Winnipeg No. 3 wheat was quoted at $1.78 1-2 and  at the same lime Minneapolis cash wheal of thc  same milling quality was quoted at $1.88 1-2 to  $1.9(31-2.  NO WONDER FLOUR PRICES CLIMB  Annual bank statements, and statements of a  like nature, very often contain paragraphs which  carry most welcome news to their shareholders,  but at lhe same time place lhc corporation in a  decidedly embarrassing light if lhc slalcmcnt is  turned up to public scrutiny. Thc fifteenth  annual statement of the Ogilvic Flour Mills Co.  Ltd., contains onc such a paragraph:  "After providing for two years' war tax  and paying its bond interest, the net profits  arc shown as  $774,270.12, or  representing  about 25 per cent on the common stock.  From this sum has been deducted .dividends  for the vear, leaving the substantial amount  of $334',270.12 to be added to surplus and  carried forward into the new year."  In lhc face of a jump in lhc wholesale price of  Hour from $0 to $10 or more a barrel, this paragraph will make interesting reading for thc poor  man who has to keep a family on a 50 per ccnl  normal wage.   Often thc question is being asked  il* thc Dominion Government is not going lo lake  some step to curb Ihesc soulless corporations in  war times.   In response lo lhis demand lhe Government  has  passed   legislation  which  permits  any  municipality  lo enquire into any reported  undue increase in price of commodities by lhe  manufacturer or producer.    Whether this legislation will have any effect in holding down thc  cost of living   remains lo be seen.    It cannot bc  ^ex peeled lo accomplish much, however, when a  Tn i fling coin pany likiT^l htT Ogi 1 viinnil Is^ca n^get  away with so frank a statement as is quoted here.  Designed this year it will ornament and. enhance the  good appearance of the tidiest kitchen in all Canada.

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  MAKING STRONG EFFORT TO ORGANIZE  The farmers of Cowicban district arc making  a determined cll'orl lo organize.   In thc Cowicban  Leader Mr. W. Palerson speaks thus of the need  of such an organization, covering not only the  Province  of Brilish  Columbia,  but agriculture  throughout Canada.    "There is no blinking lhc  fact lhat agriculture in lhis province is 'dead up  against it,' " he says.   "The cosl of production is  outrageously high because of labor conditions.  All manufactured goods bought by the farmer  have increased very considerably in price, while  the products be sells fetch lillle over (in most  cases much less) lhan these same products realized when markets were in less stringent shape.  Nor is labor lhc only bugbear lhal the farmer  meantime has to centend wilh.   The entire agriculture fabric in this counlry needs revision and  for whal is wrong; we (thc farmers- themselves)  are wholly responsible.   In matters politic manu-  "iacluring interests, railway interests, and trades  union interests, all organized and ready for fight,  lake precedence in legislation, while agriculture,  lhc basic industry of Canada as. a whole, remains  unorganized and disunited, with absolutely no  weight behind any attempt to slat__its requirements, a fit prey for thc rapacious'instincts of  these recognized plunderers., . : . Until agriculture is organized  throughout British Columbia  and in thc Dominion farming interests have no  right to expect more than, the crumbs that other  interests so generously let fall from their table.  Such organization is only accomplishable if lhe  farmers   will   sink   their  differences;   rid   their  minds of thc fallacy that farmers as a body will  not unite; and give of their time and talent to a  determined cll'orl lo place their interests in thc  forefront, where agriculture as an industry has  , every right to bc." y  o .   , Thc election of Premier Bowser by the soldiers'  ."���������������������������vote is one of thc best things that could happen  thc Province under the circumstances! If hc goes  into thc Legislature as leader of thc Opposition it  will mean that; while the Opposition may not bc  as numerical-as. all concede/would be advisable,  it will be a "strong" Opposition, ancl a most helpful Opposition to the new Government.  an opportunity. The scheme provides for the  opening of war savings accounts, pretty much in  the ordinary way, at thc banks, and at lhc Post  Ollice savings branches. When lhe depositor has  to his or her credit a certain specified sum of  money, a war savings certificate may bc purchased. These certificates will be issued at an attractive rale of discount, and will provide a saTc  and profitable investment. Thc certificate will bc,  of course, a slate security, and lhe proceeds will  be used lo meet thc war expenditures of Canada  and lo help in financing lhc purchase in Canada of  war munitions and supplies required by the Imperial Government.  According to thc Vancouver Province lhc soldier's vote gave a majority against prohibition of  3199. Deducting this from the majority in favor  by the civilian vole and that of the soldiers in  Canada, and lhc net majority in favor of prohibition is 5,835.  EUROPE BLEEDING TO DEATH  AUSTRALIA AGAINST CONSCRIPTION  ���������������������������V ,. Australia will not have any-of. the militarism  "-:'���������������������������'.of Europe,transplanted there. By^a majority of  sonic 80,000 the Commonwealth defeated conscription at the polls some days ago. ..The fate of  the military- idea in Australia has had a very decided-effect'upon the conscription idca-dri Canada.  Wc*arc Told now "bf m,cfiiBiri*"mTthority*that there  will be no attempt to adopt the military idea here.  This seems to hc an act ot wisdom. Let the military idea once get a neck-'hold upon the. Dominion  and our democracy will go glimmering. .Conscription once adopted here would mean the ultimate enforcement of militarism upon our people.  The peoples of Europe have been'enthralled by it.  and the life blood of empires is slowly flowing  into thc sands of.Flanders and other baltlcfrouts.  They tell us lhe manhood Nof Europe must be  offered up to thc last drop of blood, because of  thc idea of militarism, and .yet con scrip tionis Is  propose to transplant this idea to this and other  Dominions. Australia has given her answer. If  Canada were given thc opportunity she would rc-  ' ply as Australia did. Nol that cither Australia or  Canada is unprepared to stay inlo lhc .game with  thc Motherland to .the limit of reason. This has  been .demonstrated by thc heroic" manner in  which lhc manhod of these Dominions has gone  ^^forwardr^Bu Hhcre-is-a-limi Ubayond-\vhicluthesc_  democracies refuse to go. They will not permit  thc military idea of Europe to reach its avaricious  arm across the waters and place the iron color of  Mars upon thc necks of our children and children's children. As we understand it, wc arc  fighting to kill the very thing our conscriptionist  friends would force upon us. According to Blackwood's Magazine-ran ultra-Liberal organ���������������������������con-  . scription in England brought forward only 200,-  000 men to swell lhe army of five millions. If  this is true of England, what could conscription  accomplish in Australia or Canada even if it were  possible to force il upon lhe Dominions ?  "If thc workers of the Brilish Empire arc nol  .   conscripted, lhcy will bc dangerous when the war  ends," says the* New York World.    And if they  are  conscripted,   neighbor,   Ihey  will  bc  more  dangerous.  According to what British officers tell Arthur  S. Draper, who has been visiting the Somme  front, the end of lhc war is a long way off, lhere  being a tremendous amount of .fighting yet to bc  done. In thc spring of 1917 lhc Germans will  begin with an "immense army, this writer says.  They now have 123 divisions in thc West. Germany, and admittedly all the other belligerents  except, possibly, Russia, is sorely tried for man  power. A tremendous amount of entrenching  is being done by thc enemy behind Bapaumc.  In thc other fronts the first snows of winter-  find thc opposing armies in much lhc same position as thc first snows of lasl winter found them,  with little territory gained by cither side, and  wilh prospects for any material advance as remote as at any other period of the war. Yet both  sides put on a bold front and each claims to bc  determined to fight to a final decision. Recently  Field Marshal von Hindenburg said, as' regards  thc duration of thc war: "That depends upon our  enemies. Prophesying docs not pay. In the hour  of war one had better leave il alone. It is possible the year 1917 will bring battles which will  decide thc war. However, I do nol know, and  nobody knows. I only know that we will fight  this war to a final decision."  Church properties here and there in Western  communities, where in boom times every person  of any faith felt that hc or she'could "not'worship  God aright unless through this or that-"ism," arc  getting into. serious financial straights, and arc  being closed up. This is onc of the good indications of the times. "*Small,communities are being  bled to death iii brdei7To'keep upf'isms" in-the  form of a variety of ��������������������������� churches which the community has about as much need of as thc ordinary  canine has for a multiplicity of tails.  MERCHANTS SHIPS SUNK  Onc thousand eight hundred and twenty mcr-  .chant ships with an aggregate gross tonnage of  approximately 3,328,584, have been sunk by belligerent nations during twenty-seven months of  war ended Nov. 1st, according to figures compiled  'from cables and mail advices published by thc  New York Journal of Commerce.    Thc losses  during October  were larger  than for any one  PROMOTING NATIONAL THRIFT  The announcement from Ottawa with regard  to the plan of the Minister of Finance to promote  national saving, is of interest lo all Canadians,  particularly so, perhaps, lo people of slender  means. It is, primarily, to enable the latter to  place small sums of money at thc service ol" thc  ' state, while at the same time providing a fair return for the use of such money, lhat Sir Thomas  White' has worked out his scheme of war saving  certificates. There are in Canada many thousands  of men and women whose financial circumstances  have not permitted them to subscribe to either of  thc two domestic war loans, yet these people are  just as earnestly desirous of helping in the war as  are those whose subscriptions made of these two  loans such a magnificent success. II is for these  men and women that Sir Thomas White, wilh lhc  of the preceding, five months, according to these  statistics, amounting to 127 vessels of a total tonnage of 227,110. Thc October rale of destruction  was considerably in excess of the monthly average  throughout thc war, and British shipping suffered losses nearly equal to those of August and  S^ptcmlycr^ccinbinc(lr-HSforway��������������������������� lost=lhc-=-!argest  number of ships, fifty-six, but their gross tonnage  was only 57,333 as compared wilh Great Britain's  total loss for the monlh of 115,516 gross lonnagc,  of 38 vessels destroyed. A table showing the total  shipping losses since lhc,war began estimates  those of the Entente Allies al aboul 75 per cent  and those of neutrals at nearly 18 per cent, with  Teutonic losses less lhan 7 per cent. .  Brilish losses for October on lhe Western fronl  were somewhat lighter than for lhe three months  previous, amounting lo only 107,033. For lhe  four months of the offensive at Somme our  casualties amounled to 411,202. The French losses  arc nol given. The lerrilory gained al lhis point  amounts lo a lillle more in square'miles than was  gained by lhe Germans in the Verdun offensive.  Ten million dollars worlh of dycsluffs .and  drugs, and, it was said "possibly stocks, bonds'aiid  precious stones," comprised lhe cargo of.the German merchantman Deulschland, which made its  sccoiubtrip across the Atlantic and landed al New  London, Conn., a week ago.  As lhe result of prohibition, thc British-American hotel, thc oldest and best hotel in Kingston,  Ont., and one ol" lhc oldest in Canada, closed ils  doors last week after running for upwards of 120  ycars.  It is reported from Ottawa lhal women's organizations will be formed throughout Canada for  the purpose ol" making appeals lo the womanhood  of the Dominion lo take the place of men of military age in thc institutions of the country.

LAXITY IN MEDICAL SERVICE  According to extracts from Ihe  report of Dr. IT. A. Bruce to the  Minister of ."Militia, Ottawa, on llie  overseas medical service, there has  been a greal deal.of laxity in weeding out Ihe medically unlit during  the suffering Belgians since lhe war lhc process of enlistment and train  BRITAIN'S HELP  TO  BELGIUM   r  That the sum of nearly .?M0.000,-  000 has been loaned or donated to  began was lhe information given  The Vancouver World by Mr. Foster  Bain, of London, Eng., who has  been * con noo led with Belgian relief  work for many months. Of this  sum which has been sent to Belgium  the Brilish Empire has donated in  gifts, which were mostlv cash, over  .^3,000,01)0. Although the British  Government lias granted no direct  subsidy to Belgium, generous loans  have been made. Mr. Bain's work  has been in connection with the  distribution of these gifts among  the Belgians.  Questioned   regarding  condilions  in Belgium, Mr. Bain slated lhal lhe  reports thai the Belgians are starving were untrue.    He asserted that  although manv oi' these people have  been  forced to live on  two-thirds*'  rations,   none   was   in   dire   need.  They were receiving larger rations  than prisoners of war.   Willi reference  to  reports  lhat some of  lhe  gifts   intended   for   Belgians   never  reached   Iheir   proper   destination,  bul   were   seized   !r*   Germans,   hc  staled that  there had been a great  deal   of   misunderstanding  at   this  point.     He   cited   one   instance   of  where a large quantity of rice had  been sent to Belgium.   The Belgians  are nol fond of rice, while the Germans    arc.     The    German    burgomaster had sold this rice to thc Germans and  reinvested the money in  potatoes,    which    were    given   the  Belgians.  IS HE GETTING A SQUARE DEAL?  agricultural  pro-  Consumers o  duce, as a rule, blame thc farmer  for thc increased cosl of food supplies. They never stop to figure  things out. Uj) go thc prices for  meat, butter, Hour, etc., and thc producer is the one, who is held responsible. .The consumer overlooks  thc number of middlemen who  come between the producer and  himself. These regulate the price  the farmer gets and what the consumer nays. "What the farmer gets  and what the consumer pays raic.  correspond wmi me increased cost  of production. The farmer gels an  increase for a certain product. Bul  .this increase is often more lhan  doubled lo tlie consumer. Instances  of this kind could be multiplied  over and over if need be. The  farmer gets an increase in butter of  one cenl per pound, and the consumer pays five cents extra; live  callle advance a few cents per cwt.  and tlie price of meal lo the consumer is advanced a cent a pound  or more  lation between the price the farniei  gets and whal the consumer pays,  ���������������������������Canadian Farm.  ing in Canada.
