 3  , i  Enderby, B.C., January 11, 1917  AND      WALKER'S      WEEKLY  Vol. 9; No. 46;  Whole No. 466  Interesting Letters from Enderby  Boys at the Front and in England  In a recenllcttcr from Lieut. Glen  of the Canadian Flying Corps, now  in France, he says the weather there  is simply' ap'palling���������������������������terrific gales,  drenching rains and heavy snow  storms. As a result, he says, things  .have been pretty .dull���������������������������only onc big  strafe and two or/three short pa-  - trols every-other day. He Hew to  Liixville recently in a snowsionn  and brought back what he terms a  ."new bus," the latest thing in a  fighting Hying machine put out by  the British: .They lire the greatest  climbers known. This, Lieut. Glen  " adds, is the 18th different type of  machine   lie   has   llown   sinpe. he  ��������������������������� started^flying at Toronto a year ago  * last August.      V J  V/"Things arcipictty quiet along  the front- now," he.says. "I suppose  everyone is so occupied with their  ,"own "misery they've no time to think  : of sslugging,;thc other fellow . It  .must be ,'awful,- such ���������������������������. continuous  rains and wind and sribwr. Was iii  Nancy the other day when the Huns  put five lTrnch, shells into the-city,  onc landjng.close enough to put the  fear of the*Lord into me. "It's ah  unforgivable" thing, I think, this  shelling of an open town." Luckily  no one was killed. -Their'lines at  thc closest point are 18 miles from  the city so you "can figure the gun  to bc about 23 miles away. The shell  stands as high as I do, almost, and,  say; they go off with ii crash like  nothing on earth. They just "naturally clean up all the windows for  300 yards around where they land"T  and its rather a sensation to stand  and hear them coming moaning  through the air and not know just  where they are going to plunge.  They go th'rough about six stories  The following letters ..were received thc past week,*, acknowledging receipt of thc Christmas Comforts sent by the Enderby Comfort  Club:  Lieut. W. Stanley. Wilkinson, of  thc Ilyiiig corps, writes: "It was  with great pleasure today that I received the box of delicious chocolates. Would you give my sincerest  thanks to the Trench Comfort Club  forme. Though.1 am not at present  in thc Irenches, I spent last winter  there and am now hoping to see  them scon again from a-higher and  dryer point of view. It was most  kind of thc pecple of Enderby-to  remember us,, and I nope some day  I may have Ihc'pleasure'of thanking  you all iii-'pcrsoii."      '* '"    '.-'.'  " Pte. A. Bush writes: "I have jusl  received the- parcel .'which "you so  kindly "sent me, and wish-to thank  you all who so kindly contributed  to the many delicious and useful  things.in1 my parcel, ancl those who  wentyto the trouble of packing tfce  articles"! It was certainly a pleasant  surprise when-the parcel was  brought to me, as I am in the hospilal with measles," but am-to get  oiit on' lhe 20th. Am well now, and  all the rest of the boys were when  I left camp'.""       ;*        ...  been quarantined for measles, for  ihe past two weeks. The band hut  and live company huts are the only  ones not quarantined. Wc have  been liicky. I can tell you, it's nol  very pleasant being locked up in a  hut for two weeks straight. I nearly  went over wilh the last draft. My  name was called, also several others  from the band, 'but they cancelled  it again and wouldn't take us. '"We  are slill together, but wc never  know what they intend doing with  us. We might be called again any  day, and again they.might keep us  together. We cannot know anything  about it until a few hours ahead.-  "I had sixdays' fca/e s ncc we ar  rived, and-I- went to'London, and  certainly, had a.good time. It's a  great place.- I saw bolh my sister  and brother while* there. PaLwas  oyer on eight days'^leave, and happened to strike, London while I-:was  there. I_expected to get a few days  atyChrislmas,but-they_wouIdn't give  me any.' There, is only 33. men to"  go_ from Ihisbattalion," and. I" don't,  happen to be-one of them,so Svill  have to stay here for the holidays."  News Notes of Enderby and District  Briefly Told for Busv Readers  DEPARTMENT CANNOT HELP  of a building, so there's not much  use in dodging. It's rather a heartless thing lo say, but, honestly, I had  to laugh to see those fear-stricken  people run, every which way, with  no idea themselves of where lhcy  were going or what they were after-  I'll swear f saw onc guy make fifteen circles around a statue in thc  square I was standing in. - Five  months ago I'd been scared stiff, but  a dose of that sort of thing every  day of your life, with machine-gun  fire as an 'appclizcr, from jHun  machines, either makes or breaks a  person. Luckily I'm slill unbroken  yd. I've often thought, though, if  I come Ih rough ythe_.mr.nlhs to  % be, if lhere will be anyone thing  that will throw a scare into me. I  can't see it that way now, but I may  be mistaken."  A letter from Sergt. K. Glen, who  spent a" year in the trenches, and  was twice buried by bombs demolishing the trench, the last time on  the Somme, when he received a  serious wound in. the leg and has  since been confined to the hospital,  states that he has sufficiently recovered to pass the strict medical  examination for the flying corps.  He states that he has appeared before the admiralty selection committee and has received his commission, and now only waits his  discharge from the army to take up  training in the flying school.  "Had a letter from Charlie Murdoch," he concludes. "He is O.K.  Also saw Will Russell lasl week."  Capt. Godfrey Fowler says: "Will  you please - thank the Enderby  Trench Comfort Club very much  for me for lhcir kindness in sending  me the lovely box of chocolates. Il  was really most awfully kind of you  all, and I don't know how lo thank  you enough. I am still in hospital,  but am not getting on very quickly.

This seclion ol* ihe favored  Okanagan 'is  lhe natural" dairyman's  lield.    All  kinds ol*  feed  I'or stock  can  be  produced here  without  irrigation,  lhe  climalic conditions  are  favorable, there are creeks and streams innumerable,  wilh   natural pasturage abounding on  all  sides.    II may be assorted  wilh confidence lhal  llie dairyman stands closer lo lhe consumer and  gels a larger proportion of' lhe market price I'or  his goods'lhan any olher class ol* agrieullurisi.  TBcTruit growers, ihe produce man, the producer  of wheal and olher cereals, all have to depend on  lhe whims of the market and lhe middleman.   All  have lo give a grealer proportion of lhe market  returns to lhe men who sland between lhe producer and lhe consumer. All have to depend upon  market conditions and musl sland a grealer per  cenlage ol' wasleage than falls lo the dairyman.  We are speaknig especially of lhe dairyman  who sells his cream on thc basis of buller fal,  which, by-lhe-way, is the onlv plan on which a  HALF-HOLIDAY VOTING TODAY  The fact that Mayor Dill and lhc incoming  aldermen were elected by acclamation on Monday  will have a tendency to make lhe vole on the  question ol' lhc weekly hall'-holiday small, and  thc vote, which ever way it goes, will not bc an  expression ol* the opinion ol' the entire electorate.  Those elected aldermen were: Messrs. R. J. Coltart, J. F. Fravel, .1. B. Gaylord, James Nichol and  ^ ' Poison.    For school'Trustees:  Messrs. Crane,  Wilson an<  Skaling.  Thc hall'-holiday question is nol arousing the  nleresl here lhal is being manifest at olher points  in lhe Okanagan, the coast and interior. Al Vancouver lasl week a rousing meeting was held at  which Saturday was unanimously favored. At  Vernon lasl Wednesday evening a meeting of lhe  merchanls and clerks was held and, after a prolonged discussion Saturday afternoon was favored by a vole of 18 lo if). Al Penticton the  straw ballot laken by thc Herald resulted in 48 lo  TVin favor of Thursday. Summerland is in  favor of Saturday,while'iht; merchants of Armstrong arc urging their patrons to vole I'or Thursday, il would appear from this thai no concerted  action can be taken, and it will be impossible to  say howr the vole will go until the ballots arc  counted. Tliis is unfortunate, for il is almost  certain to;mean lhat onc town will.go for Thursday and anolher for Salurdav.  Tlie Press has consistently favored Saturday as  the only logical half-holiday. We hope thc citizens  of Enderby will turn out and give an expression  of their opinion at the poll to be taken today at  the City Mall. Wc believe lhe law as framed by  the legislature is weak and most unsatisfactory.  We believe il should have either sel lhc day lo bc  observed as a half-holiday by lhe Province or left  Lhe whole question alone. To leave so important  a thing open to the whims of every coin muni ly at  once places it upon a commercial basis and lakes  from il lhc real principle lhal backs a holiday and  makes il worlh while. The. whole iaw seems to  have been conceived purely tis a make-shift wilh  the object of satisfying the commercial self-interest of'ihe store owners and store clerks, without  going inlo lhe possibilities of making the half-  holiday an inslilulion of real community value.  However, such as il is wc must make lhe best of  it until such'limc as the legislature gives us a real  half-holiday law.  Wc fail "to see how thc mid-week half-day ������������������IT  can mean any more lo lhe community, iii lhc  future lhan if has meant in tlie pasl. Wilh the  schools open, and banks open, and. all.public business going on as usual, the closing of the few  stores in any small commimily cannot make a  hall'-holiday. To make il illegal* to sell goods on  Thursday afternoon does not make a holiday out  of il. A* holiday or a half-holiday on a day that  cannol bc observed by nine-ten lbs of the community simply makes a farce of lhe law. and  deprives lhe commimily of an institution lhal  should be of real benefit.

A., Vancouver   Agt., Endcrb> V  Thursday, January U, 1917  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  CONSTRUCTION VS. DESTRUCTION  Men learn slowly. For centuries the various  nations ol" Europe have been endeavoring to organize in groups onc against the other, in an. effort lo restrain each other. They have called it  lhc "balancing of power." Sully, lhc greal minister of France under Henry IV., was lhc first to  propose such a combination. The same spirit  underlay thc agreement of the Peace of Westphalia (1G48), closing lhc Thirty Year War.  Again, in 1713 thc aggressions of Louis XIV. of  France, received their final cheek under Ihd treaty  of Utrecht. For lhc same reason Napoleon mcl  with thc desperate opposition of thc other nations  of Europe, and thc settlement affected by thc  Congress of Vienna a hundred years ago was  based on calculations of thc balance of power.  To it also was due lhc coalition of Britain, France,  Sardinia and Turkey against Russia, which rc-  r suited in thc Crimean War (1854). The influence  of the same principle was operative in thc Berlin  Congress of 1878; and it may be traced in the recent international arrangements in which the  Powers of thc Triple Alliance (Germany, Austria  and Italy) had opposed to it the Entente Alliance  (Britain, France and Russia). The great war in  Europe today is like thc great wars which have  preceded it covering thc same battlefields. Wc  think today as those peoples of other times  thought-in their day, lhat wc arc witnessing the  final war that is to bring world peace. But wc  deceive ourselves. What lhc world knows as the  "balance of power"���������������������������thc organization of onc set  of peoples in groups to opcriilc collectively against  another organization of peoples in groups���������������������������the  maintenance of thc "balance of power" by force  must, in future as in the past, lead to, other wars  of a similar nature. But in these wc arc not  particularly interested. It is just as well, however, when discussing the outcome of the present  conflict,' to remember history, and to remember,  too, that any combination (community or international)-organized against another combination,  is simply individuals" and nations pooling their  weaknesses against other individuals and nations,  and niust sooner or later lead to other wars. In  short, so long as.wc give our minds over to the  thought forces of destruction instead of to., constructive thought, wc shall have wars and a continuation of wars. .^  : London consumes 800,000,000 eggs,per annum  ih times of peace. They amount to a weight of  55,300 tons, and thc proportion imported totals  ' 500,000,000, or 34,600 tons. This leads thc London Daily Telegraph to urge the extension of thc  egg and poultry industry at home, and it remarks  that if three fowls per acre of cultivated land were  maintained in East Anglia alone'thc increased  value of thc eggs and poultry would bc over three  million pounds sterling per annum.  LET THE COURTS DECIDE  Former Premier Bowser left for California the  past week for a six-weeks' holiday. Before going  from Victoria hc replied to a letter written him  a couple of weeks ago by Hon. M. A. Macdonald  in which thc new attorney-general had requested  co-operation in securing thc consent of thc Imperial House of Commons to an Act validating all  legislation passed, between March 14 and May 31  last. Mr. Bowser declines to have anything to do  with any action which thc new Government may  dccm_dcsirablc for the purpose of disposing of  llie^lbubtcast upon tlTc^regislation-by^Hbn^Mrr  Brewster and his colleagues.  "I notice you refer to myself as leader of thc  Opposition," writes Mr. Bowser. "I beg to state  that no onc has yet been elected to that position,  and therefore any action that I may take in connection,with your suggestion must bc understood  as voicing only my own views, and not speaking  for thc Conservative party.  "As you know, when thc lion, lhc leader of lhc  Opposition lasl session raised the question as lo  thc legality of all legislation passed after March  14 I took thc position that our Legislature was  constitutio'nally carrying on ils work, and as I  have never had any doubt since lhat my then-  expressed opinion was properly held, I can sec no  reason now for taking an inconsistent position  with reference to thai vie\y by assenting lo imperial legislation. If you liold a counter view it  would seem to mc a proper course for you to  pursue would be for the Hon. the Premier to proceed with the action against myself in which hc  issued a writ in thc Supreme Court of B. C. on  June 1 last; and allow the courts, thc proper.tribunal, to settle these disputed questions."  The Bodies had better look out and prepare to  run, for when the Tommyesses of England get  into the trenches there's going to be something  doing. "Our authorities," writes a woman to thc  Whiston Tribunal, "tell us that thc army needs  strong reinforcements, and ,if the men haven't the  pluck, we women must go. Therefore it is that I  ask you to send me to the front. I should make  a first-rate Tommycss. I love fighting, as my intimate friends can testify. I am never happier  than when in a scrap. I am not of the fair, lat  and forty order. I can use my fists as well as a  girl of 20 can do, and if I am given a rifle and  bayonet I would shoot the Huns as I now shoot  the rats which infest my pigsties, and with more  pleasure, too, for while I pity the rats, I should  have no pity on thc Bodies. I am as strong and  as stubborn as a mule."  CO-OPERATION IN SCHOOL SUPPLIES  The direct school lax is only a fraction of the  cost of giving a child an education.' The text  books furnished by thc government free lo thc  child docs not materially reduce thc cost of an  education���������������������������provided a parent has a number of  children attending school. There arc the various  and sundry exercise books, scribblers, etc., which  lhc child must have. They cost only 5c or 10c  each, perhaps, but thc frequency wilh which lhcy  are required, means a considerable cosl laken for  the entire term. Today, with the cost of paper  going up, this means more scribblers of fewer  pages, and a greater aggregate cost.  A few years ago, under thc principalship of Mr.  Calder, the Enderby school inaugurated thc Fortune School drawing pad, which.were furnished  by-Thc Press at 2 pads for 25c. These pads contained several pages more than the custom-made  drawing pads, and the paper was of a much better quality. By thus co-operating wilh thc children ancl thc local printer, thc school board was  enabled to affect a considerable saving for the  school children, in drawing pads alone. Today,  even more can be gained by this co-operation.  Owing to thc cost'of drawing paper advancing,  thc ordinary 10c drawing pad contains only 8 or  10 sheets, and the paper is of second quality.  The Press has printed a few hundred copies of  lhc 1917 Fortune school (iruwing pads, which can  bc sold at 10c a pad of 16 sheets. The paper is of  first.quality and thc pads contain just twice thc  number of sheets as arc in the ordinary custom-  made drawing pads. Thus thc school children  arc enabled to make a saving of one-half their  drawing-pad cost. And thc pads printed,by The  Press give prestige to the school adopting them,  for the name of the school is printed on each  sheet together with the space for pupil's name,  date, etc.  Thc United States has paid Denmark $25,000,-  000 for three small West Indian Islands, with an  area of only 138 square miles and a.population of  less than 300,000. But the islands arc for a naval  base protecting thc Panama canal. If the islands  were over in Europe and-were required for military purposes, some. excuse would have been  found by thc nation requiring them to occupy and  take .them without price, and to protect them  against some possible future enemy. It's marvelous how thoughlM lho-������������������; big feliov.s overy. in  Europe arc of the w<'.ICan: of the lillle fellows.  GUESS WHO SAID THIS  There is over in thc States a preacher who is  said to be a marvel in leading the spiritually sick  to Jesus.' He has a way of'doing it that is not  orthodox, hence the church cries anathema at. the  man who infuses a little of his own God-given  individuality into his business. Here are some  choice sayings of his marvelous man of God:  "If the highbrows don't want to come around  here they can go to thc devil."  "I am your spirtual physician."  "Your sole thought should bc thc leading of  men to heaven, not preventing them from pulling  you down to hell. I'd like to put my fist in your  face and tell you so." .  "Don't blame God when you wake up in hell.  Consider the many means of escape He-gives  you."  "Whoever preaches future probation lies.  "God didn't stop to think whether you would  like hell or not when hc made it."  Now that the answer to tbe German peace proposals has been made, to bc followed in a lew  days by an answer to President Wilson and the  other neutrals, wc mav look for all talk of peace  to subside at least until, the Allied armies have  made another great cflort to break thc enemy  lines, cither on thc West front or on thc East.  This will probably carry thc struggle on until the  fall of the present year.  MR.
