A well-attended ancl interesting  meeting of lhc Board of Trade was  held in the City Hall last Friday  evening, when il was decided lo endorse lhe Hope to Princeton pro-i  posed route for the inter-Provincial  highway, it being the opinion of the  meeting that if this road is to be  built io Kamloops, as proposed, it  would he of more advantage to the  Okanagan than any olher route suggested.  The matter of a local creamery  was discussed," and il was pointed  out thai the limited number of cows  in the district would at once put  the matter out of reason. Mr. Coltart explained that the creamery at  Armstrong was nott beginning to get  cream enough to operate at anywhere near its capacity, and it was  drawing from, the Armstrong and  Enderby-Mara district ' combined.  He failed lo see what-this district  could hope to gain by attempting to  start another plant. The cost 'would  be probably $4,000 and \yev should  be-no farther ahead after we had.it,  for it could not offer the farmer  any better "terms-than the creamery  now" running 'offers;1 anil" the "man"  who has the,cream to sell gets his  check, 'which is cashed at par in  Enderby the same as at Armstrong.  The farmer is going to spend his  money where he can get the most  for it, and cash coming into the  district from the outside is more  helpful than cash paid from onc lo  the other at home. He thought il  might possibly be of assistance if  the Board would take up the matter  express rales and endeavor to get a  belter rale for the local shippers of  cream. *  Afleiy some further discussion it  was decided to allow thc matter lo  stand until some future date.  The question of encouraging increased  production, of. held  truck  Okanagan Telephone Company Has  United Service Over the System  ( Manager G. H. Dobie, with President J. J. Jones, of'the Okanagan  Telephone. Company, together with  Mr. G. A. Hankey, who represents  many of the shareholders in the  company, recently made a trip  through the Valley to inspect the  propertyj)f the company and at thc  same time to look inlo the possibilities for a larger volume of business.  The Okanagan Telephone Company operates in Vernon, Lumby,  Armstrong, Fnderby, Salmon Arm,  Kelowna, Peachland, Summerland,  Naramata, Penticton, Oyama, Okanagan Centre, Mara, Grindrod, Sicamous, Alveston, Richlands anl West-  bank . II will be remembered that  some five or six years ago this com  pany came into the OkanaganVallcy  and boughLup,the. then existing individual, telephone companies oper-  ati ng between -Vernon aiid' Enderby,  and on Okanagan ,Lakc" between  Kelowna and Penticton. -The equipment of the old companies was of  pioneer type, with rates high, and  service-indifferent," with- short and  uncertain hours.'  When the new company took over  its lines in the Okanagan paralleled  by thc newly-constructed Dominion   -  Government  telephone' line.    This  encroachment   on    the   Okanagan ���������������������������  Telephone Company's toll business  by thc Government, Mr.Dobie states, ���������������������������  is  directly contrary  to'all  assiir- ���������������������������  ances  given "the  company'by  the  Government   when    the   Okanagan  Telephone Company took over the  old-individual lines and started to \  build the united one-service system'  ,  in the Valley.' He al that time took  the matter up with the Department  and was assured that il was not the .  policy of the Government to enter-afield   already  covered   by  existing  '  lines, but that the.Government lines  were run into territory not covered",.'  so that the.people of these "more or���������������������������yy  less   isolated' localities -could   befs  giyen telephone connection -with the'V  "systems' alreadyy'ihV existence"'and,"'  being-operated by private capital;' y-V-  JustywhaL is" back of the" move- ��������������������������� ;  ment o'f "the Government'telephone ;-  builders,.

Crane expects to be in thc field this  year to buy for outside parlies and  pay cash on delivery for all kinds  field produce. He will handle carloads or lesser amounts, and will bc  ready to take all lhal is offered and  pay the prevailing market price.  During lhe meeting thc constitution drawn up and submitted at a  previous meeting was ready and  finally passed.    Il is as follows:  The organization shall bc known  as the Board of Trade. . Ils object  shall be to advance the commercial,  social and general conditions of Enderby and district.  Regular meetings of the Board shall  be held on thc first Friday-in each  monlh; special meetings may be  called hy the executive, or on re-,  quesl of any live members who are  in good standing.  The annual meeting shall be held  each year on thc first Friday in  December.  The membership-fee shall be $1  per annum, payable on application  and thereafter at each annual meeting; any person*over 18 years of  age shall he eligible for membership  The officers shall he president,  vice-president and secretary-treasurer.  The executive committee shall  consist of thc officers, who shall attend to any necessary business of  the Board between meetings, subject to confirmation by the Board,  but shall nol have power to incur  any liabilities on behalf of the  Board.  Seven members shall form a  quorum at any regular or special  meeting, and eleven shall form a  quorum at thc annual meeting.  Whv nol take your Sunday dinner  at the King Edward?  wilh continuous hours at'the central  points, *and extra long hours, considering the amount of business,'at  other points. Manager Dobie states  lhat it is thc intention of the company to make the hours continuous  throughout the system' as soon as  possible. It is also the intention of  the company to build a line to Oro-  ville, Wash., lo hookup with  the  ture is so unnecessary and unreasonable, for by it the patrons of the"  Government line cannot bc given  the service they could gctj if the  Okanagan Telephone Co.'s lines had  been lapped into. The money expended by the Government in lhe  construction of these paralleling,  lines would have built lines to Ma-  bej Lake_aiuL_other_localities, \vhich_  Transcontinental Telephone System.! |iaVc been asking for 'phone service  When this is done it will be possible: f0r a number of ycars.     -  for Endcrhy to lalk to any city on |    Man.,fe,ei.

Perhaps no concern in thc  Valley has been harder hit by the  war conditions than the Okanagan  ���������������������������Telephone Company. The cost of  supplies necessary for maintenance  has doubled and Irebbled owing to  the demands of the war, and at the  same time the earnings of the lines  have diminished in almost equal.ratio. Thc balance sheet of lhe past  year shows Ihe cosl of operation  and maintenance was some $29,000  in excess of lhe earnings of the system. This in spile of the fact that  strict economy has been exercised  in every department compatible  with the high standard of service  the company has established. Bul  never a complaint has heen heard,  and no change in telephone rates  has been attempted.  In  Ihe face of these conditions,  Manager Dobie says lhe company isj  iq) against thc proposition of having i  of the Okanagan Telephone Co.  clearly indicate that there is not the  business offering to warrant the outlay. And thc Government telephone  line service cannol hope lo compare  with that provided by Ihe established system.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1917  "IN UNION THERE IS STRENTGH"  Men seem lo believe this in theory, bul nol in  practice.   At least, if the theory is good, they will  not admit il in practice.   For ycars in lhc various  districts of lhe Okanagan Valley, and il* reports  are true, in oilier districts as well, our farmers  have struggled along each in competition in lhc  open market will) tlie other, and all thc while thc  fanners themselves have been thc sufferers.   Wc  have, it is true, various farmers' organizations:  Ihe  Farmers'   Institutes,   Poultry   Associations,  Farmers' Exchanges, etc.   Wc have organizations  enough, but no organization.   Onc single farmers'  association in which the farmers would really organize and work together would bc worlh more to  anytdislrict lhan all lhc various organizations wc  arc endeavoring lo work through.  True, the same mistake has been made and is  being perpetuated, in our churches and other social and business organizations, secret societies,  elc. Any one of them is as good as the other, and  none is better than its members make it, and, following up the argument, thc same people cannot  do as effective work through numerous organizations as they could do through one organization,  as each additional organization the individuaFaf  tempts lo work through makes demands upon his  lime and pockel which must lake from his individual elfectiveness and the effectiveness -of all.  Al Penticton a meeting was held last week of all  the various farmers' organizations, in an cll'ort lo  overcome the organization evil there, the purpose  being to combine all the organizations relating to  .agriculture, in one association. This, il should be  added- is the ultimate aim back'of the United  Farmers movemenl, which has become general  throughout Canada.  ARE WE TO HAVE NATIONALIZED FARMS ?  The British correspondent "Windermere" has  been responsible for some very funny stories  coming from London. He it was who pul forward the suggestion, some time ago, lhal Premier  Borden was about If) resign to lake a parlor position over in England, where, il was inferred, his  good looks would count for more than lhcy do in  Canada. "Windermere," it will be remembered,  early in lhe war, cabled lo us in Canada telling  how painful it was to know so much about whal  was going lo happen and nol to be able lo say anything about it. "Windermere" has, in general,  put some fanciful stories over on us in Canada,  and, though bc may not know il. it is a fact,  nevertheless, that very little attention is paid to  anything "Windermere" sends this way.  His latest story was lhat aboul lhc 200,000,000  farm which a number of English noblemen were  about to purchase in Canada, to be paid I'or by the  British Government in four years al the rale of  .$50,000,000 a year, it being stipulated that the en-  lire purchase 'price was to be pul back into thc  land by the Dominion Government as il was paid  over. This Imperial farm was lo pay oil* the entire  debt of Britain, contracted before and since the  war began.  This slorv is aboul the most fanciful "Winder  mere" has sent this way. The proposition is so  gigantic it is difficult for the ordinary mind to  grasp. But thc point is made clear that all of the  two billion dollars which is to bc paid for the land  must bc put pack inlo it by the Dominion'in the  way of improvements. In other words, thc seller  of the land must put into the land lhc entire purchase price and turn the 200,000,000 acres over lo  lhe tilled purchasers fully developed.  o'Windcrmcrc" docs not tell us lhat the Imperial Government will operate this gigantic system of farms in competition with the ordinary  individual farmer, but il is to be inferred that il  will, since farming land musl produce if it is lo  be made to pay, and it can only bc made to pay if  the produce of lhe land is sold in the regular way.  As before stated, the proposition at present is  entirely loo fanciful for the ordinary mind to get  hold of. Perhaps as wc hear more about it, it will  devclopc into something tangible.  SEVERING DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS  President Wilson has taken the only logical step  left for him in severing diplomatic relations with  Germany in the face of the new submarine campaign which the Teutons have determined to go  into. Sinking all ships, neutral as well as belligerent, wilhin thc submarine blockade zone, and  sinking them without warning, goes beyond all  previous understanding of warfare, and thc  Uniled States, aflcr months of diplomatic effort to  hold a middle position, could do noihing else but  sever relations, as a protest against such warfare.  Severing diplomatic relations may mean lhat  lhc United States will declare war on Germany,  though this does not necessarily follow. If war is  to be declared, it will bc declared within a few  days. But lhc probability is that war will not be  declared. When Count von Bernslorif was handed  his passports at Washington hc said hc expected  them and lhat his Government expected diplomatic relations would bc severed. This statement  may have two meanings. It may mean that Germany and her allies arc in desperate straits at  home owing to lhe British blockade and have  taken this means of bringing the neutral countries  inlo war against Ihem in lhe hope that in the  making of peace Germany will fare better than  shc would without Ihesc countries having a voice  in the peace terms, or it may mean that Germany and her allies feci so sure of their ground  and of The general strategic position, of their  armies that they can now all'ord to disregard the  wishes of the neutrals and make onc grand bid for  peace on their own terms by trying thc starvation  game on us as we have tried it on the Central  Powers, believing that lhe end justifies thc means.  The severing of diplomatic relations is another  step toward peace. President Wilson knew better  lhan anyone else could know how near his country was lo war when he penned his lasl appeal lo  the warring powers for peace. His words were not  those of a pedantic; hc knew his ground and had  the courage of his convictions. He knew what the  nexl step would be and hc wanted to avoid it���������������������������not  because he had any fear as to thc outcome, but because hc could foresee from whal had already  taken place whal such a slcp might mean to his  country, and hc wished lo avoid this ruination if  it were possible.  Thc nexl few weeks will undoubtedly bc history  making ones. They will be weeks that will bc  filled with momentous incidents in the great war  ���������������������������weeks lhal men have dreamed about experiencing but uever have experienced.

SOME THINGS TO LEARN FROM ANIMALS  Walt Whitman, once wrote: "I think I could  turn and live wilh animals, lhcy are so placid and  self-contained.* I sland and look at them long and  long- They do nol sweat and whine ahout their  condition. They do not lie awake in thc dark and  weep for Iheir sins. They do not make mc sick  deciding their duty.to God. Nol onc is dissatisfied,  not ont i.sVdCmented wilh live mania of owning  things. Not one kneels to another, or lo his kind  that lived a thousand ycars ago. Nol one is respectable or unhappy over lhe whole carlh."  Lei this he noted: Whitman merely wauled to  live wilh animals, he did nol desire lo become one.  He was not willing to forfeit knowledge; and a  part of thai knowledge was, that man has some  things yet lo learn from lhe brute. Much of man's  misery has come from his persistent questioning.  Not satisfied to let well enough alone, hc wants to  meddle with lhc machinery of his make-up. He  begins lo question himself about his physical well-  being, aikI soon discovers something wrong one  place or another. He takes something out of a  botllc to repair an imaginary ill and in doing so  creates a real onc. Not satisfied with his spiritual  condition running along on normal lines, he begins to ask questions, and discovers lhat thc soul  must have ils growing pains and its hours of darkness and repentance, otherwise hc will be condemned and sent into everlasting torment. Our  theologians have long encouraged the questioning  habit/ And, having asked thc question, they proceed to give an answer. But the answer fails to  satisfy. And it is ony when men go to work that  action removes the doubt that theory created and  could not solve. Thc rushing winds purify thc  air; only running waters arc pure; and thc holy  man���������������������������if there be such���������������������������is lhe onc who loses himself in persistent, useful cll'ort. By working for  all we secure thc best results for self, and when  we truly work for self, we work for all.

A., "Vancouver   Agt., Enderby /  *  Thursday, February 8,1917  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  THE    MINISTER    OF    FINANCE  REQUESTS  THE    PEOPLE   OF   CANADA    TO  BEGIN NOW  t  TO SAVE MONEY FOR THE  NEXT WAR LOAN  JAN. I. 1*17  DEPARTMENT OP FINANCE  OTTAWA  UNITED FARMERS' SUCCESS  Mr. Thos. Abriel, president ofs the B. C. Fruit  Growers' Association, recently attended thc  annual convention of the United Farmers of Alberta, where he carried to the 700 delegates the  greetings of the fruit growers of this Province.  This visit was significant in the fact that one year  ago the organized farmers of the Prairie Province  went on record against purchasing any B. C. apples during 1916, due to the increased duty. A  wonderful spirit of co-operation and fraternization has sprung up between the fruit growers of  British Columbia and the Prairie farmers, due in  a large measure to the work of the Fruit Growers'  Association.  "The Prairie farmers are well organized and  are doing a wonderful work in bringing about a  better condition throughout the. three Western  Provinces," said Mr. Abriel, "and I am convinced  that the fruit growers of British Columbia should  , cultivate the friendship of these Prairie people, for  there we must expect to market the larger pro-  - portion of our fruit crops every year. There is a  marked difference in the spirit now prevailing  amongst the farmers than a year ago regarding  B. C. apples. They did.not know our,exact position, and when explained to them, they, like true  gentlemen,.AS���������������������������eyery4.one,oLthem^are,_agreed,that  . we had , a very difficult problem to face in the  marketing of our fruit.  Reviewing the work of the past year, Mr. Abriel  refers with no little satisfaction to the fact that B.  C. fruit has been advertised as it has never been  advertised before throughout the three Prairie  Provinces. This campaign was waged in nearly  every publication going into the homes of the  Prairie people, and did not a little in increasing  consumption and in setting forth the surpassing  qualities of B. C. fruit. "While visiting Calgary  and Edmonton I was much impressed with the  fact that oiir campaign was so well received ahd  that our growers were so broadminded and so  progressive as to adopt the most 'modern business  . getter' in the present-day commercial life���������������������������the  newspaper advertising columns. There is no  doubt in my mind that every fruit shipper in  British Columbia must contribute his $1 per car  ���������������������������for-every-car-shipped-out^ol-the-Provincerto-the  general advertising fund, and if we continue along  this line we shall have a fund that will advertise  our fruit throughout Western Canada, as Sunkist  oranges are advertised from coast to coast."  MUST HAVE UNANIMOUS SUPPORT  Speaking a few days ago before a Welsh audience, Premier Lloyd George made this stirring  appeal: "We can win the war," he said, "but only  if the nation is prepared to back the Government  4 in money, labor and sacrifice of conveniences and  comforts. Then we shall pull through. The  enemy is getting desperate. The Prussian thoroughly understands that the resources at our disposal are adequate to command a victory on land.  The Germans know that thc Allies, given time,  would break their military machine, but they  know that if they could destroy British transports  the British armies would languish and thc people  would die of hunger."  "When the smoke of this great conflict has boen  dissolved there will reappear a new Britain. It  will be the old country still, but it will be a new  country. Its commerce, trade and industries will  be new. There will be new conditions of life and  toil, new conditions for capital and labor alike,  and new relations between both of them and the  state. Old principles will still survive, but there  will be a new outlook and character in the land.  The men and women of this country will become  fine building material for thc new Britain that is  to be. There have been epochs in the history of  the world when in a few raging years the character and destiny of the whole race have been determined for unknown ages. This is one. Then  let us not be weary in well doing, for in due time  we shall reap if we faint not."  Compulsory military service is popular among  those above the age of liability.  RIGHT AND WRONG INITIATIVE  In every village and on the park benches in thc  large cities arc wise men who sit and sit, and tell  how things should be done. Having no special"  business of their own, they look after other people's; and no enterprise of pith and moment, at  home or abroad, escapes them. They denounce,  revile, berate, scorn, pass: judgment, prophesy,  and gently pooh, or damn with faint praise. At  one place in his writings, Elbert Hubbard characterizes these people as "the predecessors of the  graybeards, to be found in every almshouse, who  pick to pieces the President's policy and chortle  in toothless glee as they call the attention of each  other to thc idiocy of it." '   . '*.  Insane people often make good suggestions;  restlessness and discontent are not necessarily  bad. But to think out a betterment and'carry it  through to a successful conclusion demands the  highest type of sanity. Indeed, the distinguishing  quality bf insanity is its incoherence, its fitf ulness  ���������������������������a lack.of will at the critical time. Sanity means  system," method, purpose, self-reliance, poise.  Initiative has been characterized as the rarest  and finest thing in human nature; But there is a  quality of-initiative, that begins things and never  completes them; that makes the start but does  not^stay in -to thc finish; that takes the credit-*of  first suggestion, but fights shy of a final accounting. Initiative of thc true type faces the resporisiT  bility of-failure, just, as bravely as it sits" and  listens to the plaudits and cheers which follow  success. An initiative that begins a railroad with  no definite termini would be of no value. It docs  not have to be proved that a.railroad which begins  nowhere and runs to an undesirable place is of no  avail. Railroads must run from wherc things arc  plentiful to where they arc needed, and moreover  they must be manned and completed. One missing rail on a very fine railroad would put the line  out of business. N--  PARCELS FOR PRISONERS OF WAR  Thc Post Oflice Department is in receipt of a  cablegram from the British authorities stating  that no parcels containing foodstuff s_or articles of  clothing^should^he^foi^^rrdctl^irr-future'from  Canada for prisoners of war in Germany. Thc  British authorities represent that it is absolutely  necessary that thc above regulations should bc  complied with. Therefore, on and from tbe 1st  February the Post Oflice will refuse to accept any  such parcels for prisoners of war in Germany.  The department is advised by thc English authorities that such parcels cannot bc accepted for  transmission to the prisoners, and could not get  through. The Canadian Red Cross society  through its London Office undertakes that every  Canadian prisoner shall receive adequate relief in  food and clothing, sending one parcel every week  to each prisoner. Therefore, existing organizations should continue their work of collccfing  funds to be sent to the Canadian Red Cross Society; and it is mosl desirable that they should not  relax their efforts in this respect. Persons desiring to have additional food or supplies sent to  a Canadian prisoner should send money for that  purpose to the Prisoners of War Department,  Canadian Red Cross Society. A letter containing  a remittance and asking thc Department to send  food or other articles to a prisoner should be addressed to the Prisoners of War Department, and  should contain all information as to the address of  the prisoners for whom the parcel is intended.  The war has introduced to us many strange  innovations and changes, and not the least of  these is represented in thc cinema film, "The Battle of the Somme." It is very wonderful indeed  to be able to sit in comfort and safely at home  and witness the passing of events on thc great  battlefields of Europe. Thc drama or tragedy  of war unfolds itself before our eyes. We sec  thousands of fine lads, the flower of our youth,  helmctcd and armed to the teeth, going into battle  with a smile on their lips and a cheery wave of  the hand as they swing past the recording cinema.  ���������������������������Glasgow Times.

A  dispatch says "it can be said with  authority tliat it is improbable, if  war between thc States and Germany should occur, that thc United  States would actually join the Allies  in the present operations. Thc aim  of lhc United Stales is more to compel recognition of and protection  I'or the rights of neutrals, and that  this object would bc obscured by  actively participating in thc war on  Ihe side of thc Allies."  FENTON���������������������������A NDERSON  A quiet home wedding took place  on Thursday, Feb. 1st, at the home  of thc bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs.  Andrew Anderson, Mt. Ida, when  the Rev. .I. A.

Thc incident occurred  in the town of Aylmer, Que., last  month when Mr. John Beaton was  nominated as alderman, though he  was ill at the time. He got worse  and died on election day, but the  name could not legally be removed  form the ballot, and consequently  415 more votes were cast in favor of  thc name of John Beaton than that  of his opponent and hc was de-  claicd elected���������������������������I hough dead.
