A meeting of the City Council'  was held Tuesday evening to decide  the matter of who was to do thc assessing for 1917, since Assessor  Johnson had declined to proceed  with the work. After a brief discussion it was decided to pay Mr.  Johnson'a month's salary in lieu of  30-days notice, and lo declare the  office vacant.

The  questions are asked by lhe National  Service  Commission,   and   arc   for  the purpose of registering the manpower  o.f  the  Dominion���������������������������nol������������������for  military purposes so much as for  thc purpose of mobilizing our manpower in order to place tlie productive end of Lhe country on a safer  basis.   There are many ways of serving,the nation besides going to the  front.' The man on thc farm and  the mechanic in a workshop may bc  serving the .nation-as usefully as the  man in the,, trenches.

While  no active'interest in  thc  j approachijig    municipal    elections  has yel been shown, several names  have been mentioned for ihe oflices  of aldermen, and there is yel the  possibility of a contest. At the same  time,  there  is the general   feeling  th a I  we should leave well enough  alone,  and,  if the  present  mayor  and board of aldermen are willing  to stand agaili,'lhat they should bc  re-elected by acclamation.,  This, it  is  argued,  would  be  beneficial .in  many ways.   Mayor Dill and Aldcr-  Nmcn Sharpe,.

The cily officials to be elected at  lhe forthcoming elections will have  to' deal with one of the most' vital  questions   for  the   people.     Mayor  Dill mentioned thc question ih his  inaugural address to the council of  1910, and placed it as one of the big .  questions  to  be handled   the' past'  year.     Frequently   the.matter   has  been mentioned at the council meetings, and thc question.has been discussed by the Mayor with" Manager  Stevens, of the Okanagan Saw Mills,  but no" action has'been .taken.   We .*  refer lo the lighting franchise under which the Okanagan Saw Mills,  Ltd., has lighted thc town- for the,  past te7i ycars.   Thc people of En- -',  derby owe a large debt of gratitude *   '.  to this company, and particularly lo  Manager   Ste\ens,* for   the   whole- -\  hearted,.generous policy.pursued by.

But it was said long before  thc mind ol* the world became obsessed wilh ideas  of dreadnoughts, machine guns, submarines and  munilionillionaires, and when religion meant  something more lhan prayers to God to help us  lick the other fellow. Today the path of lhc peacemaker is something quite dilTercnl. For instance  London says: Statesmen, politicians and businessmen ..agree.' lhat there is no possible hope of  tan will spend the winter at their  Enderby home.  One or Iwo enthusiasts have put  in a lot of hard work on thc curling  rink the past few weeks, and have  one sheet of ice almost ready for  the slanes. No move has ycl'been  made, however, to revive the curlers or to bring the" club to life.  Lasl Thursday evening in thc  Methodist Church the 'Christmas  tree services by the Sunday school  children were greatly enjoyed by a  large gathering. A splendid pro-  V'ram was given after which there  was lhc. usual distribution of gifts  to the, children.  There were three Enderby entries  at the Penticton poultry show last  week', where in the neighborhood of  liOO birds were on show. Geo. II.  Smedley entered Black Minorcas,  H. S. Andrews, Barred Rocks, and  Bruce' Oldford Partridge Wyandottes. Their winnings have not  yet been made known.  " A letter from E. R. Bobbs, Burlcy.  Idaho, says they found that town  all they expected���������������������������and more. He  says the wind blows there something dashable. He noticed a lot of  "people limping, and asked an old-  timer what was the reason, and was  leaning  against, the wind so much, w\  caused one" leg to grow shorter.  ) '     ���������������������������  (laughtcr-returned-rfronrVanderhoqf���������������������������Prcsideirt^Wilson's note getting anything but ajwou  Tuesday. Mr. Ruttan * contemplates COUrtcoiis bill firm refusal, lhc feeling is grow- won  Worten;^ ing throughout lhc nalion that lhe President has won  been lhc viclim of German influence. Thc opinion  is freely expressed lhat President Wilson's syni-  palhies are entirely wilh.thc German side." And  under lhe same dale, and in the next column of  lhe same paper, a Berlin dispatch says: "Wilson's  step," declares Count von Rcvcrtllow, "i.s noihing  but an cll'orl lo save England from catastrophe."  Even in the first hours of shock fell in all lhc  belligerent countries when President Wilson sent  his appeal lo Ihem to state their terms of peace, in  none of thc criticism of his action���������������������������and much of  it has been hitler and even ruthless���������������������������not a word  was heard which would cast doubt upon lhc sincerity of the President. His policy -"has. been  severely questioned and his position assailed, but  none of his critics have doubted his honesty of  purpose. Perhaps when thc illogical objections  to lhc stand taken by President Wilson finally  spend themselves against lhc solid wall of fads;  perhaps when each belligerent state is brought to  sec itself in the light of actual world condilions,  wilh self-interest and injured pride swepl aside,  and il must lake a world view of itself instead of  the narrow view, of the fighter mad wilh lhe.de-.  termination lo vanquish or be vanquished; perhaps Ihen the bigness of President Wilson's action  ,,,,.,.., 1. 1   ���������������������������.������������������������������������������������������ .will have been recognized.   But whether it is rcc-  iold   thnt   u   was   fiom   lc5j;{J?g! ognized or not, whdhcr fighting Europe accepts  moves of these portenlions days,  - W we are lo judge by wl^al appears in print,  official Entente opinion strongly resents what has  been done by President Wilson. A good many  people in Greal Britain, France and Bussia, think  they arc fighting lhc neutrals' war as well as their  own. They think lhat if they were conquered and  lhcir naval and military power broken, lhc position of all neutrals, and particularly America,  would bc very dangerous. They point oul that il  Id be only a short time until the United States  Id have lo accept dictation and surrender ils  Monroe doctrine or would have to fight a terrible  and probably disastrous war. On the oilier hand,  America thinks Ihis is not a consideration of facts  bul of opinions, and, being on friendly terms wilh  both sides, sees ils future threatened-no-more  from one quarter than from the other, il is quite  hopeless, therefore, to imagine that a neutral  President of Wilson's type can accept our view of  the case anymore than Germany should expect  him to accept the enemy view.  It is time the lighting nations should recognize  lhat the neulralsViavc rights which cannot be  ignored by the lighters. Take in a community  brawl, where twoVrincipals and their friends arc  healing each other lo pieces and destroying the  peace of the'neighborhood in general: are lhcy  permitted to continue their endless destruction  until thc whole commimily is drawn inlo light  and all arc ruined? ft is the same in lhe great  world fight, it mailers not who started the war, or  whom we should damn for having started it, the  facts arc that the best in lhe world is being destroyed, and there must come a lime when those of  the world who want peace must take a more  dclemincd stand and demand il. President  Wilson evidently thinks lhal time has now  come, and he has had lhc courage of his convictions.    He may be damned, but docs damning  come, when--'this; utility ��������������������������� woui.iliboV  bwncd by''lhe-people, but whelheiV  that tinie'has yet'arrivedis *a ques--'*  lion Svliich the'incoming: council;'  will be cajled-upon to decide.  -    ���������������������������'���������������������������-  . From the fact that this important'  .-nailer will "have to be dealt .wilh-,  within the next few.months, il is" :  most necessary that n:cii,he elected-  as mayor and, aldermen who havey  had  experience  in  handling civic'"  business, and for thisVeasorj, if for -  no olher, as many-as possible of the  present aldermanic board should be  induced lo stand for re-election.  \FIRST TO REPLY TO WILSON  Germany and her allies���������������������������Austria-  Hungary, Bulgaria and Turkey���������������������������are  the  first   to  reply  to  the   note  of  or rejects his good offices, nevertheless his appeal'him answer his argument?  President Wilson. Thc text of the"  reply, which was handed to the  American ambassador at Berlin on  Dec. 2(ilh, is as follows:  "The high-minded suggestion  made by the President of the united  Stales of America'to create a basis  for the establishment of a lasting  peace has been received and considered by thc Imperial Government in.lhc friendly spirit which  was expressed in thc President's  communication. Thc President  poinl.s out that which he has at  heart and leaves open the choice of  roads.  "'lo the Imperial Government an  immediate exchange of views seems  to he Ihe most appropriate road in  order to reach the desired result. It  begs, therefore, in the sense of the  declaration made on December 12,  which offered a hand for peace negotiations, to propose an immediate  meeting of delegates of'the-belligerent slates at a neutral place.  "The Imperial Government is also  of Ihe opinion that the greal work  of preventing further wars can be  begun onlv after the end of the present si niggle of the nations. It will,  when this moment shall have come,  be'reads', with pleasure, lo collaborate entirely, with the Uniled  Stales in this exalted task."  The Endcrhy junior la cose team  went lo Armstrong last Thursday  evening and pul up a fast game  against the Armstrong boys, the  score standing 4-2 against them at  the close.
