 _T  d.  1������������������  Enderby, B. C, February 15, 1917  AND      WALKER ?S       WEEKLY  Vol. 9; No. 51;   Whole No. 451  First Meeting of New City Council  Takes Up Enforcement of By-laws  The first business meeting of the  new Cily Council was held last  Monday evening; present, Mayor  Dill in lhc chair, and Aldermen  Collart, Fravel, Nichol and Poison  around the table.  After lhc adoption of the minutes  of several special meetings, applications were heard from Ii. R. Wilson, F. J. Turner and E. R. Scham-  ahorn for an extension of lime for  thc payment of water rates, and  each application was granted, for  nol longer lhan one month.  Mayor Dill submitted a general  report of the work thc incoming  ..Council would bc called upon to  take up���������������������������matters left unfinished by  ���������������������������the old Council, ancl new projects  which will,require looking inlo. He  referred to lhe finances of the city,  showing that at,thc beginning of  the year 1910 the cily. owed the  Rank o'f Montreal $2,900 on lax' account. By-Dec. 31st lhis had been  reduced lo $500, thus.improving thc  city's position by $2,400. It is also  gratifying to,note, he said, that wilh  the exception of lhe expenditure  caused'by the freezing of thc-water  pipes in the early part of the year  and thai incurred in connection  with the acquisition of the hospital  property, the decrease of expenditure of $6,600 per annum inaugurated in 1915 was maintained last  year.  In the matter of thc expiration of  the electric franchise, the Mayor reported that he recently interviewed  Mr. Rogers, of the Okanagan Saw  Mills, and hc had stated that while  thc company was prepared lo continue the service at the expiration  of thc franchise, the company was  not prepared lo enter into any prolonged renewal of the franchise. It  was stated that it will be necessary  "T m'^tHcncl t y^tcrll eciifcTTif  date what course to pursue  matter.  Attention was drawn to defects  still existing in the roof of the City  Hall; the procuring of a map of lhe  extra-municipal portion of thc  school district for assessment purposes was urged; the question of establishing a permanent public memorial of thc men from Enderby who  have taken part in thc war was revived; and other minor matters left  unfinished'were referred In. The  Mayor called attention to thc common infractions of several of the  city by-laws, and said he hoped thc  Council" would see that these bylaws were enforced or that they  should bc repealed. He referred  particularly lo lhc keeping of hogs  and cattle wilhin the limits of the  lown, and to the erection of smoke  houses within the fire limit contrary to the reading of the law.  A statutory temporary loan bylaw passed two readings.  The following accounts against  the City were ordered paid:  Okanagan Saw Mills $38 10  E. .1. Mack    12 75  G.

Folkard   .'....,.    4 20  The- Council declined to endorse  a resolution from the Okanagan  Farmers' Inslilulc asking the Provincial Government to establish a  model farm in .the Okanagan, it being the feeling of the aldermen that  the present was not the lime to urge  such a proposition. Another reso-  lutioirfrom the Municipal Council  of Point Grey asking the Government to pass a poll tax law and to  devote the revenue so collected to  the Patriotic Fund, met the same  fate, thc Aldermen feeling that the  Government should belter know to  what purpose it could devote the  revenues of lhe Province.  A resolution from thc Cilv Coun-  cil of Nanaimo urging the Dominion  Government to take, more drastic  action in. the matter of regulating  thc price and exportation of. foodstuffs, and to protect the home de7  mauds first, was endorsed by the  Council.  Several minor'matters'relating'to  the collection of accounts, charity  grants, etc., were disposed of, and  thc question of removal of the C.  P. R. slock yard was discussed at  some length, the desire.of thc Council being to have the yard placed al  the south boundary of lhc city instead of continuing it at its present  location. . ������������������  Mayor Dill reported that a representative of the oflice, of works of  the Dominion Government had that  morning visited the city for the  purpose of ascertaining what accommodation" could be obtained for  the reception of sick ancl wounded  soldiers. He stated lhat it was proposed lo organize them in units of  not less than 200. He had taken  the Government representative to  see the residence lately occupied by  Mr. Moffet and other buildings, and  the matter is to be -pushed further  by the City.

Then somebody frank  ly points to thc folly, and everybody laughs al thc  territory like the Mabel Lake District, and other  developing sections. It can bc argued thai a Government telephone could not bc made to pay in  these outlying districts, which is no doubt lhc  case; but neither can tlie paralleling long distance  line recently erected in.thc Valley bc made to pay.  It cannot bc made to pay for the reason that thc  and the Burns, both handsome ones  ������������������������������������������������������and thc prizes handsome pieces  of cut glass, elc.

They .report an cxccl-  Governmcnl line has noihing to oiler in thc way anything except   insane   asylums, jails,  model  of service. Had lhc Government brought ils lines  in Irom its outlying districts and hooked up to the  Okanagan system at converging points, patrons.of  the Government line could Ihen have access lo lhc  2,000 patrons of thc Okanagan unified system, and  the Government line would have been made of  some service. As it is now operated it simply  makes lhe Government line an absurdity born ol"  petty spilcfulncss. For instance, a call comes over  lhe Government line from a neighboring lown.   If  a neighbor's Okanagan 'phone is handy the party  called is requested to go down lo lhe Government  telephone central ollice and talk to lhc parly at the  other end. If an Okanagan 'phone is not handy  Ihen central has to wait for some obliging boy or  neighbor to go to the office or the home of thc  parly called and tell him thai somebody wishes to  talk to him over the Government long distance.  And at the same time the parly called may have a  long distance 'phone at his elbow, covering lhc entire Valley. How many times will any business  man submit to being a party lo this absurdity?  There is no use appealing.to his patriotism when       _  lhc folly of it pokes fun at his reason.

Away back in 1610 Galileo complained because  lhe theologians of his day would nol so much as  look through his telescope, but sal back and declared him an "infidel" and an "atheist."

Said Galileo in a  letter'to Kepler: "Many years ago when the stir  about Copernicus was beginning, I wrote a Idler  of some length, in which, supported by lhc authority of* numerous fathers in lhe Church, 1 showed  whal an abuse it was lo appeal so much lo Holy  Scripture in questions of natural science, and I  proposed lhat in future il should not bc brought  inlo Ihem.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY  15   1917  WHAT IS ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR ?  A new and important policy of land settlement  is lo be laid before lhc Provincial Government by  thc advisory board of Farmers' Institutes, urging  thc Government to select acres of good lands in  various portions of thc province for homesteads,  leaving the balance of unalienated lands closed  until such time as the selections made shall have  been colonized. In other words, thc plan means  lhc settlement of areas by concentration, voiding  lhe necessity of new roads to out-of-the-way  places, and systematizing thc transportation problem without in thc least interfering with general  settlement ol" Brilish Columbia, and by co-operation, increasing development. Under the plan  advanced no other lands would bc permitted to  bc taken up until thc colonization of the selected  lands had been completed and thc areas exhausted  for that purpose. . Thc board also endorses the  idea of co-operative land settlement, as it applies  to returned soldiers.  Anolhcr question to be urged upon the government by the Farmers' Institutes is to lhc effect  lhat such legislation shall be passed as will debar  Orientals from 0acquiring titles to agricultural  lands in thc province, and it is also urged by thc  advisory board lhal for the period of the war lhc  export of breeding cattle bc prohibited. II is  claimed that within the past two years American  buyers have reduced the stock of breeding cattle  until it has become a serious matter to thc future  of the industry.  Thc fact that Premier Brewster started life as  a printer and was for a time make-up man on thc  Boston Herald, is no reason why British Columbia should feel that shc has been unduly 'imposed'  upon.

The  Toronto Globe says lhal among the important  questions which will engage lhe attention of'the  governments after the war lhe utilization of  Canada's waler resources is one of the most practical and urgent.  A comparison shows that the development per  capita of hydro-electric power is KS7 horse-power  per thousand of population in Norway and 210 in  Canada. In Manitoba the ratio falls to 111 per  thousand of population. In comparison with fuel  power the hydro-electric is very cheap. In Canada  this is important, where fuel has to lie imported,  'fhe industrial growth of lhe dominion will depend largely on the cheapness of power.  'fhe dependence of this country on the coal  mines of lhe United States will some day prove  of serious concern to Canadians unless steps are  laken to utilize available waler power I'or healing  as well as lighting and driving power.

Wc  have made such gigantic strides in the past because yve have had so little to spend on military  matters. Our interest charges have been light;  our bqrrowed capital has been a source of wealth  to us,, so that we have become a wealthy nation,  and are in a fair way to take our place amongst  thc great nations of the earth.  They are entirely wrong who think that thc  , world is growing old, and is hastening to decay.  This is but thc childhood period, of the. world's  history. The "Golden Age" is yet to bc, and wc  Canadians should let this thought inspire us to  press on to the accomplishment of greater and  more enduring things in the future. It is impossible to forecast the.after eff ects.d" "the war.. The  destruction of property,; and, worse siill, the destruction and maiming oi' virile "manhood, are appalling.- ���������������������������;��������������������������� -. ��������������������������� S-S v '-'-  -: The birth rate in dictations engaged will be  , seriously affected.   This will have an effect upon.  '-emigration from Europe to this   country,- but  , which is most likely fo be,counter-balanced by an  increased emigration .from, theVUnilecr States.  This will be for our good. Thc Americans are a  fine������������������peoplev>ati^  class who have been coming to us-from Central  Europe. Our resources for the production of  wealth are incalculable. We have all that we  need lo develop them but willing and intelligent  .men and women with high ideals so as to leaven  the whole population.  Believe as -we may about religion wc are compelled to acknowledge that "righteousness cxal-  teth a nation." The lesson wc need most at  present to learn is. to despise unjust gains, and to  be satisfied with legitimate profits. My ycars give  nib privilege to write this. I love my country*and  thc land of my adoption, and I want it to bc the  "pride and pattern of the earth." . Thc hearts of  the people arc sound ancl true, and Grit and Tory  alike arc not going to allow vice and avarice to  rule here. As a farmer I wish to show how easily  wc can do our part to meet our national obligations.   I think that wc have done our part in thc  - present, struggle, both _with.mch_and.. means, but  wish wc were better equipped to tackle the finan  cial burdens now constantly growing.  Wealth consists not in thc possession of gold,  precious stones, or works of art, but in food,  clothing, homes an<i all those things lhat administer to our mental and moral nature.  Wc farmers, who own or rent the land, have a  great responsibility resting upon us. The rest of  mankind must depend upon us for their daily  food. It isViptous as patriots and^truenren to  produce all we can and of the best quality. Plenty  of food means cheap food, and cheap food is a  great factor in making a contented and happy  people. To restrict the output of necessaries is  devilish, and ought to be legislated out of existence. We ought to know, il* wc do not, tliat the  world is face to face with food scarcity. A short  harvest, the destruction of war in Europe, the  waste caused by submarines, have left the world  with a'smaller stock to carry us oyer to another  harvest than ever before, and now is the time for  us to plan and prepare for a greater output of  our products. It is not pleasant to have to slate  lhat wc are not half farming. We arc not properly cultivating our land; wc are sowing inferior  seed. We are not keeping enough stock. We are  not growing half enough corn. We are not systematizing our work, and so a lot of our energy  is wasted. Thousands of animals on our farms  die yearly through neglect and carelessness.  These things ought not to be, and we, as v/ell as  the whole country, are losers. If farms were'managed as successful businesses are managed, there  wouldn't be such a thing as failure amongst us.  The present high prices of food products are  not wholly caused by the war. They would have  been so had the v/ar not been. The world is better  off, and the masses, whom formerly wc only partially fed, arc living belter, and thus greatly  increasing the demand. At tlie present prices of  meat and flour and dairy and poultry products,  we have every incentive to bend all our energies  to thc production of these commodities. A fifty-  acre farm should give as good a return as a 100-  acre one formerly. A man ought to be able to  obtain a good living off 25 acres. It is a folly, if  not a sin, to kill young stock, or stock not properly finished.-:  . I noticed lately a farmer delivering a batch of  hogs that were only half finished. Had he kept  them another month and fed them properly they  would have gained about three pounds per day  each at an expense of 15 cents and the country  had that much greater supply. Thc thousands of  calves put on thc market monthly could bc more  profitably kept on the farm in many cases. By  sowing lots of corn and oats, a vast quantity of  the best of stock food can bc produced. An acre  of corn and another of oats would feed two cows  all winter. .      /r '  The day for thc small farmer has arrived, and  we shall sec here, as we see in older lands, many  small farms where we only have large ones now.  --���������������������������-This cannot be done all at once. Time will  solve the problem. In thc meantime we should  ami to-employ all the labor wc,-can, even if.the  margin of profit is small. An acre of potatoes, if  properly cultivated, would pay a mail's wages for  a-couple of months, even at the-present-rate.  Tlifed "or "four additional cows would add' but  little extra labor, but would'add considerably lo  our income. Now that wc can sell our cream to  such good advantage thc labor of dairying is cut  down one-half. Milking is not hard -work���������������������������only  when wc fancy so. I was visiting an aged friend  lately who milks seven cows daily, and hc thinks  nothing of it. I have another friend who keeps  around 15 cows (three do thc milking), and his  receipts arc $9 per day, but thc milk is sold. This  man employs a man by thc year. He has a son  and daughter to help. He has,brought intelligence  and method to his.work, and hc has made a fine  farm out of a poor onc. None arc overworked,  but'contrariwise, they find life* a pleasure.  There is no luck in thc matter. Thc same  seasons come to all. What hc is doing all may  do, generally speaking. Our country's needs are  calling us to our patriotic duty to do bur best to  produce all wc can. Wc shall have to pay a very  lMle^liarc^f^ur^hmra  well set to work wilh a will lo do it.���������������������������"Vim," in  Weekly Sun, Toronto.  LIFE AFTER DEATH  Sir Oliver Lodge, principal of Birmingham University, speaking at thc recent opening of the  Northampton School for Girls, said in the course  of his remarks: "Few families have not been  sfmckVlowh Irylonlfclila"iffityVluriirg tlicTycars  of the war. 1 want to point out that death is not  so serious a matter���������������������������it is a .transition, a-natural  process of emancipation of the soul from the body  ���������������������������dissolution bul nol extinction.. When people  think of thc body lying in the grave they should  not think of the person as associated with lhal  body. The body is only a transitory thing of 70  or 80 ycars, but that which has grown wilhin lhal  body will persist. We must think of the transi-  toriness of lhc body and the permanence of the  soul. It is necessary to realize lhal character is a  possession which lasts throughout all eternity.  That character wc form here wc take wilh us, we  cannot get away from it. Suicide docs not help at  all. Wc only take ourselves wilh us inlo tbe next  life, noihing else. Dcalh by violence is a calamity,  but do not mourn unduly for. those that arc gone,  for, as Macaulay says, 'They were in some sort  happy in the opportunity of their death.' This  kind of death has in it an element of sacrifice, of  redemption, which wc may hope will be accounted  to them. Let us try to think of those who are  gone as not really gone, but, unseen by us, yet  working wilh us in a glorious scheme of help and  pity. We musl change to something higher. Thc  angels keep their ancient order, and we do not  know what wc shall become, but there arc all  grades of being up from man to Deity. This vision  is not purely imaginary. Thc great men ol* the  race arc not deceived, and lhcy say even more  than wc do."  NOW KNOW IT'S FIGHT TO THE FINISH  Thc German Imperial Chancellor now knows  what his country is in for. Hear him: "Success  lies in a higher hand, but as regards all that human strength can do to .enforce success for the  fatherland, bc assured, genllemen, lhat nothing  has been neglected. What arc the peace conditions of the Entente? Germany's defensive force  is lo be destroyed, wc arc to lose Alsace-Lorraine  and our eastern provinces, thc Danube monarchy  to bc dissolved, Bulgaria again to bc cheated of  her national unity, and Turkey to be pushed out  of Europe and smashed in Asia. The destructive  designs of our opponents cannot be expressed  more strongly. Wc have been challenged to fight  to thc end. We accept the challenge; we stake  everything, and shall bc victorious." .  It is well to read in this connection thc words, of  Mr. John Hodge, Minister of Labor, who, addressing a meeting in London a few nights ago, said he  thought hc was giving away no secret in.saying  that at thc recent conference between representatives of the Entente Allies, thc determination had  been arrived at to terminate the war by the end of  thc summer. '    . ;        .   ,-  It would bc interesting to know just what the  Minister of Labor desired to convey by>this statement, which would indicate lhat thc Entente are  . preparing lo press an offensive on all lines this  spring and summer that will smash thc German  plans of defense, and are certain of breaking-  through. If hc did not mean to convey this .idea,  . then his words can have no. other interpretation  than lhat it is thc puropsc of thc Entente Allies to  submit lo a modification of the severe terms previously stated, at thc end,of the summer campaign, so as to make theni acceptable to the allied K  enemies. If Mr. Hodge did not mean to convey  any such a thought, then it would seem that he  simply was talking to encourage his audience, and  did not intend that his words should be taken at  their full meaning.
