 I...  /  Enderby, B. C, January 18, 1.917  AND      WALKER'S      WEEKLY  Vol. 9; No; 47;  Whole No. 467  City Auditor Crehan Tells Enderby  Ratepayers Facts to Think About  City Auditor Crehan, of thc firm  of Crehan, Martin & Co.,Vancouver,  addressed the citizen of Enderby at  the public/nieeting held in the K.  of P. Hall last Wednesday evening,  and in his sharp, trenchant talk, hc  left them a" lot to think over. He  gave in a critical way much information that all ratepayers with  thc interests of the town "at heart  ought to know. At the same time,  his talk, while not intended to be,  was the best possible answer to the  /criticism too often heard of thc City  Hali and the work of City Clerk  Rosoman.  Auditor Crehan'does not mince  matters when discussing municipal  affairs. He knows the ins and outs  of municipal government, and docs  not handle his information second-  handed.    In ' his  reference to  the  . condition of Enderby'scivic affairs  he paid a nice compliment lo City  Clerk Rosoman, for whom, hc said,  he held no brief. But he was forced  to recognize facts, and said, the rate-  payers of this city should consider  themselves fortunate in having so  able a man iii charge of the city  oflice. He defied anyone to find a  more accurately kept, system of  public accounting than that to be  found in the Enderby City Hall. As  he had spent some 15 years in close  touch with the municipalities of thc  Province, he felt that he should bc  in a position to know what he was  talking about. He said it would  probably bc an easy matter to get a  cheaper man���������������������������a $50 a month man.  Other municipalities he could name  which had found these cheap men  and had put them in charge of their  civic a flairs. He knew one municipality   in   particular,   and   lhat  ^imThicipality"was_nowr-cnipl(jyingan  expert at $6,000 a year to get them  out of the tangle into which they  were brought by the "cheap" man.  Auditor Crehan referred to the  condition of'the sinking fund of the  city, which, hc said, was not being  kept up to the mark required under existing bond issues. This condition, he said, was common in the  Province, but because common, was  none the less serious. How long it  would be allowed to continue was  a matter which rested entirely with  thc bondholders, who, since the  war started, had not pressed their  demands upon the municipalities.  But this condition cannot always  obtain. There must come a day of  settlement, and this involves issues  which every ratepayer must now  think about. The deficit in the  sinking fund must be made up, and  the ratepayers, through their board  of aldermen, must find a way to do  it. No ratepayer can shirk the responsibility. Ev ry piece of property in the city could be levied upon  by the bondholders for payment of  the bdnded indebtedness when due.  The tax levy of the past year or  two had been insufficient to cover  the sinking fund requirements. In  recognition of the times, the city  had endeavored to keep the tax  levy down as low as possible. The  Auditor felt lhat this fact should be  understood by the ratepayers. It is,  perhaps, a wise policy while the  war is on, as a means of reducing  thc tax payments required of the  people, but the amount has to be  made up later, and it was a question  in his mind whether the city should  not attempt to economise in some  way in order to permit the laying  aside of sinking fund requirements.  Mr. Crehan took up thc expenditures of the past year, item by item,  but could find no place where expenses could bc reduced in any degree. Here and there, small sums  might be lopped off, such as payments to thc Union of' B. C. Municipalities, which expenditures,' he  thought, were unwarranted by the  results obtained. He did not consider that the Union of B. C. Municipalities was watching the interests  of the municipalities. -' About the  only, legislation that had been put  through of late affecting municipalities, was wholly in the interest of  the' banks, which gave. them a  strangle hold upon'the resources of  the municipalities and enabled, the  banks to tie up the, revenues in a  way never before dreamed of. Another source of expenditure, which  he.believed would have to be cut  down-sooner or later, was in the  educational system, which he believed, -is entirely too extravagant  for times like these, arid,clearly beyond the revenues collectable for  school purposes. He thought the.  educational system should be revised in order to meet the conditions which the war is forcing upon  the country. It is all very well to  have our high schools, and the extensive- corriculum ��������������������������� taught in our  public schools, but he questioned if  it were wisdom for the ratepayers  to keep paying for the high school  4  education of children when actual  sinking fund requirements were not  being provided for. There is coming a time, he feared, when small  municipalities will have to curtail  expenditures in order to meet their  liabilities, and it is time that the  ratcpayers'arc beginning to take an  interest in some clforl looking lo a  solution of lhe financial difficulties  looming up on' the horizon.  the  Auditor Crehan referred to  criticism of the cost of operating  the City Hall, meaning the handling  of the records and general ollicial  business. By way of comparison,  he said thc,cost was about 3 per  cent of lhc revenue collections  handled by lhc City Clerk. In the  average city ollice. he said, the cost  is from 10 lo 12 per cent of the revenue .collected. Something might be  saved the city, but very-little, if the  number of street lights were cut  down 50 per cent. The use of the  long distance-phone, too, might be  discontinued. But these savings  'would be.small, and the wisdom of  it questionable. - He failed '. to ��������������������������� see  where the city could make a saving  in the cost of operation arid comply  with tbe l-equircnieirfs"of ~the-;law:  He said iftherc was to be economy  practiced other than-.that already  in vogue, the only way was to strike  at the root of*the-expenditure evil,  and ask for a school act more suitable to present-day conditions.

This, it seems, is  own, when they talk so glibly of conscription."  In these days of stress there is no spirit so depressing and none so shrivelling to the soul as thc  war fruit of hatred.

Mr. and  Mrs. Williams  lake  with them .the  i large cir-  crucl.  Organized labor is not objecting to the National  Service plan on account of the men not wishing  to serve the nation and empire, but, as onc labor  journal puts it, "the people of Canada want to  feel that they are playing a mah's-sized part in  these world events. They are not satisfied with  being the mere pawns in a game iu whose ending  they have only a remote and sentimental inleresl.  Conscription has no terrors for thc citizen of a  country who feels that he is not being cheated  and bamboozled inlo being a cat's paw for a class  of parasites who have been his enemies, even in  his own country, and in times of peace. If the  nation's welfare demands thc sacrifice of the lives  of its citizens in its defence, thc lesser sacrifice of  capitalist property for the nation's service should  first be made, as an earnest that capitalists really  fhey are the logical product of the war  spirit of hatred.

Similar             '  action was taken by organized labor in England  some months ago, and it was not until thc Government lhere look hold of lhe problem in  earnest and nationalized lhe wealth and industries  as well as the individual, that England really  "struck her pace." Months were wasted in attempting half-measures. Strikes and various  forms of labor troubles were thc result, until the  Government finally had to cut all profiteering  out, by taking over all lines of transportation,  munition factories, and all other industries necessary to the carrying on of the war.  cie of Enderby  been  residents  friends.   They have  of Enderby several  lomie wlucli made Hie days sweeter  worth living. Focussing their.thought upon one  thing, and lhat thc destruction of human life and  the destroying of'the best in civilization, lhcy  miss all else. To Ihem il is meat and drink. It is  not surprising, therefore, that they become war  mad. lt is not surprising that they let go all confidence, in neighbor, friend and humanity. It is  not surprising that they demand but one thing���������������������������  go and kill'or be killed. As a commimily, as a  nation, as an empire, arc we nol drifting into that  awful spirit pf hatred? That heart-souring, soul-  killing spirit of thc man-brute?  Thc Dominion Government has rescinded the  order compelling all mail matter addressed to  "Berlin," Ont., instead of "Kitchener," Ont., to be  sent to thc deadlctter ollice. This is another evidence of returning sanity. The original order  and lhe changing of tlie name was about as big a  piece of business on the part of thc government  as thc refusal of a good but misguided soul to cat  cabbage because cabbage is used by the Germans  to make saurkraut of. We've said and done a lot  of fool things thc past year or three that will live  to poke fun at us.in after years���������������������������and all so seriously 1  est of the town and district.  In the voting on the half-holiday  proposition last Thursday, there  was more or less fun for a few. The  merchants concluded early in thc  week that thc vote in the neighboring towns would go for Thursday,  and they worked for Thursday here.  The vole was small, only 31 being  polled for Thursday, 15 for Saturday and 10 for Monday. The voting  for Monday was done more in fun  than seriousness by the men employed about the mill yard.  One hundred and twenty-five Enderbyites and neighbors, from Armstrong and Grindrod way, enjoyed  the annual dance given by the local  Knights of' Pythias in their hall last  Friday evening. Thc dance proved  the ofl-repcated assertion that thc  local Knights know how to make  their guests enjoy themselves. The  music by the Armstrong orchestra  was satisfactory, and the lloor and  refreshments all that could bc desired, and Ihe young people made  1 the most of a very happy occasion.  a  '!,'  wS'Sr*.  ���������������������������    S'.Jklri  Vlf1  "7.   * -&'������������������?

organizalion of Europe, guaranteed by a stable settlement based alike upon Ihe principle of nalionalilies,

Every Canadian between llie a<$es ol" sixteen
and sixty-live, should, and no doubt has. conscientiously answered the (jueslions'on the cards
sent out*by the Director o!' National Service. Thc
war has reached a stage where it is absolutely
necessary that the Government should have the
information it seeks by these cards. The procuring of tliis information is simply "a"" step
lucessarily for the firing line, but so that Canada
may be able lo do ber share in "keeping the home
(ire's burning." and in supplying llie needs of
those actually in the Irenches. bearing llie burden
and facing tlie perils of Ibis war. We mistake the
temper of Canadian manhood if lhe Government
experiences Ihe slightest trouble in having these
National Service cards filled in. Let us make our
answer on lhis point bolh practical and unanimous.
Onee more il is desirable lo call attention to the
fact that Canadian women going lo pjigland at
lhe present time are running the risk of being unable If) conveniently return. Al the present juncture of the war it is deemed highly important thai
travel be restricted lo a minimum, shipping facilities being taxed lo the utmost capacity for purposes connected wilh the war. People whose business in 'England at llie present time is nol a mailer of absolute necessily should remain in Canada
otherwise they incur risk, as already slated, of
being unable to conveniently returned, and in addition, the possibility of becoming more or less
of a care to the British authorities.
War or no war, whal we need in Can.ida��������� and
especially lhis portion ol" Canada���������is more farm
produce, and more dairy and beef cattle lo feed ill
lo - now and for all lime.
Requests for the expenditure of public monies
for buiiciing railways and public works continue
to come in \o the Government of Canada and one
wonders whether the people whtf make such re-
ouests have yel heard thai Canada is al war.
the British. Government has made a request for
1,;���������)(}() miles of rails I'or urgent military purposes   ^
in France, and Canada is able lo supply lhe whole |     "fp      J      \\ftan\r
extent her transportation facilities. Tliis is lhc
result of lhc railway policy carried on by the late
administration. There is this justification, however, that ibis extravagant program was originated and developed in lhe piping times of peace.
Today the Government is in receipt of applications for .subsidies, nol ohly for steam railways,
but there is also a demand lhat a new door of cx-
-pei)diUu,c.be-opencd,Jn the _sbape_of ..siiJisMi^JilV.
electric roads.
In view of the tremendous burden of war expenditure, tbe Government has been endeavoring
lo stop completely the building of public works.
It has been endeavoring lo concentrate the attention of the people upon lhe one thing worth while,
namely llie prosecution of the war. But lhe demands" for railway Jniilding continue lo come in,
until wonderment arises whether the people who
make such demands are not more intent upon
these designs than upon the defeat of the Germans.

A., Vancouver   Agt., Endei'ny ������������������  Thursday, January 18,1917  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  MID-WEEK HALF-DAY OFF  The vote in Enderby on the half-holiday question was disappointing, not so much from the  point of general results, as on account of the  small vote polled. Fifty-five votes out of a registered voting strength of 200 or more, does not  indicate any interest being taken. The stores  alone put up any combined effort, and they stood  solid for Thursday for lhe reason thnt neighboring lown merchanls were pulling for the mid-  Avcek holiday and the general desire was for the  day to bc uniform. The question-of'a-general  hallVholiday was never considered in connection  with the vole. Il was simply a question of making the Avcckly half-day oil' for the merchants and  clerks uniform and on a da}r most convenient for  themselves and their customers.  This was the only logical position for the merchanls  lo lake.    The half-holiday Acl as now  drained is not broad enough ever to become a  real half-holiday law.   II was asked for in lhe first  place by the merchants themselves in order to get  thc provincial government behind their efforts to  compel the merchant who insisted on keeping  , open for business when thc majority of them  wanted to lake a half-day off, to ciosc.   It is class  legislation, pure and simple,' ancl as such will  ^ never become popular.   A half-holiday on Wcd-  ncesday or Thursday for  lhc retail merchanls  and their clerks is thc real thing, but it can not  bc made a  popular hall-holiday covering the  schools, the banks, the wholesale houses or tlie  public business ollices.   It is the kind of legislation  lhat penalizes bul cannot accomplish any  useful purpose, therefore it will never bc satisfactory.   Last year bolh Vancouver and Victoria  voted for Saturday afternoon.    This year Ihey  being overworked, or requiring a weekly half-day  off to rest up. Our contention has been, and is  today, that the only logical half-holiday is on a  Saturday, the day generally observed throughout  the civilized world. That the law should be so  amended as to allow the merchants to do business  on* that day if they choose to do so, and the clerks  could be given a half-day oil mid-week if they desire it. The idea of penalizing a man for doing  business on any weekday is contrary to all reason and is distinctly opposed to the democracy we  harp so loudly upon. Did you ever see a merchant of any kind penalized for accommodating  a customer or openly doing business for at least  part of any Dominion holiday? A Dominion holiday is not class legislation, and no penally is provided. Thc Provincial Half-holiday Acl is distinctly class legislation and a penally has been  provided.to force one merchant to meet the  wishes of olher merchants. And thc responsibility  of carrying oul lhc Act and doing the penalizing  is thrown upon the shoulders of the government.  MOST WONDERFUL WAR FILM  ROLL OF HONOR  FOR KING AND EMPIRE  ENDERBY  OVERSEAS  W. A  voted for Wednesday afternoon. Next year lhcy  may switch back lo Saliirday, and thus thc merry  war go on from" season lo season, and all lhe  while lhere will be no real public 1 in If-holiday,  because thc holiday spirit will -be killed.  The position taken by Thc Press on this question has not been onc of personal inleresl, nor  have wc looked upon it purely.as a mater concerning lhc merchants of this or any, particular  community. When thc government steps in to  make a half-holiday if should bc and must be on a  day lhat lhe general public can observe.as a holiday. To leave it to lhc various communities to  vole.on what.day it shall bc, and then declare  that il sliall" be-unlawful for any merchant to  open his. store for business on'^thc half-day his  neighbor may desire to lay off, is bringing the  ."-question down lo small politics and spoiling what  , should be made, a hclpfurinstitution to the community. Wc arc nol advocating,-and would-not  advocate thc closing of the stores oh Saturday af-  ago  or  tcrnoon. In thc old days, say 12 ycars  thereabouts, the towns of the Okanagan observed  Saturday afternoon as a holiday, by mutual consent. Games'were provided, ahd the farmers  came in by the hundreds, when they were not  too busy in the harvest fields. Thc merchants  closed their stores while the games were on and  thc general getting togelher of the farmers and  townfolk each week for a few hours sport helped  wonderfully in developing a clearer understanding aiid maintaining a helpful community spirit.  Aflcr thc games the stores were reopened and the  farmers and llicir friends, the merchants and  citizens generally, got togelher in thc evenings, or  meandered home, as it suited them. Our Enderby  storekeepers Ihen did trebble the business that is  done today,- and  nobody worried much, about  Mark Allerton, in the Glasgow Citizen of Aug.  24th, said,of thc film called "The Battle of lhc  Somme." "It is the biggest thing ever done by  photography. 11 is worlh travelling a hundred  miles to sec. Certainly no adult can afford lo  miss seeing it. It brings the war before your eyes,  thc .war as a monstrous instrument for killing  men. Uutil you have seen it you cannot appreciate  all the sublimity and degradation of what you  read in the newspapers. When you look on thc  screen you will turn sick with horror. II is good  that you should bc turned sick with horror: Those  of us who, arc slaying at home are in need of  something that will help us to understand thc  sheer horror, of war. At the back of our minds  there still lurks the thought that war is rather a  fine adventure, aii adventure in which there is  nobility and chivalry and some goodness. There  are virtues in those who fight our battles, but  there is not onc virtue in war. War is bloody and  beastly, unclean, and gross, and crass, and this  film, 'The Battle of the Somme,' shows you it  without glamor or romance, a horrible plague  thai has fallen upon us, lhat must be prosecuted  to thc end so that it shall never happen again.  -."I need not describe this film, "for you will'see  it. You'must sec it. You must, sec these columns  of, men, all laughing, all. light-hear led, marching  in to-the trenches. You must sec them going 'over  the top.', You must sec for about a minute that  hellish shelling that went on for five days without  interruption. You must sec it so, that yon may  marvel Iioav your kindred can endur.c so much. I  am glad that ho false tenderness lias exercised a  stupid censorship on this film. You-will sec men  being killed. You will see men being mutilated.  You Avill sec men naked in the dressing station.  You. will sec the hasty burial of those Avho have  fallen. You Avill see thc big guns nosing aboul for  lhcir prey. You will sec the earth shattered and  torn and convulsed."  For political reasons men arc slill criticising lhc  Otlawa Government for equipping our Canadian  soldiers with thc Ross rifle. Wc wonder what  other rific they would have had tlie Government  equip the men with? There was nothing better  lhan the Ross to bc had al the time, and the defect  in-'its magazine could not have been discovered  until it Avas given ils practical tryoul in actual  service.  =^TI1E-I1APPY-Ihl BIT-*-  Tell your wife about it'  Charging cruelly and gross neglect, a Brooklyn, N.Y., girl, 19 ycars  of age, lias broughl suit for $50,000  against a home I'or girls.  The nexl problem which i.s facing  the government and will demand  sclllemenl is what is lo bc done  wilh the petticoat town.  Because "two can live as cheaply  as one" the average of marriages in  New York has increased from 100  lo 140 per day since the living costs  have gone' up.  A New York woman wbo thought  she married a Avcalthy baron, found  while she married a baron all right,  he was a pauper, and now she is  suing for divorce.  An Indianapolis man was found  clinging to lhe top of a telegraph  pole. Hc told llie police that he had  been married three days, and gave  his wife $20, his week's salary, out  of Avhich she had spent $5 for perfume, $G for silk stockings and then  left him .saying he was a cheap guy  and that she could not live on his  salary.  A forcAvoman in an Eastern factory testified in court that the skirts  of two of the girls working under  her were so short that she had to  , surround the girls wilh barrels so  the attention of the men would nol  be distracted-from Iheir Avork.  Thc meals of MOO Berea College  students, Avithout coffee, tea or buller, cosl 7 cents a day per student,  and they thrive. Thc meals of ihe  Carlisle Indian School, which is  producing notable athletes, costs  10 2-3 cents a day.  These are the days when the civilized nations of lhe Avorld are al  lhe threshold of woman rule. And  we see some freak legislation demanded here and there, as the women reach out as in the dark for  something they believe the Avorld  needs. A woman in one of the  Eastern cities is circulating a petition for the passage of a laAv compelling men who smoke cigarettes to  walk in the middle of thc streets,  and as a counter offensive some of  the men are circulating a petition in  favor of the passage of a law compelling girls Avliosc dresses are over  six inches from the ground to walk  in the middle of the street also. We  wonder Avhal they will do with the  women who smoke cigarettes?  Habits rule our lives. Happiness  hinges on habits. Therefore, "gel  the "happy habit." Il is lhc possession of those alone who have habits  of industry and wise economy. Our  habits pul us lo bed at nighl and  lhcy get us up in the morning. They  seal us at-.the-table, and lhcy Sel us  ITS��������������������������� work!7 II u blnird onee~sa i d th a t  "the quality of our work turns.on  the kind wc are in the habit of doing." Slipshod, lazy, indifferent,  careless, reckless habits do not produce good results. The.v do ncl secure Ihe lespecl of goo^t people, the  confidence of society, nor the approval of one's own conscience.  These three habits arc essential to  the well-rounded life, and must bc  acquired in order lo gel lhe "happy  habit." Thc habit of health, llie  habit of work and the study habit.  No man can be called educated, eke  woman, who is a parasite on the  community, a care to other people,  a burden lo relatives or a menace lo  society. Sobriety, sanity, hcallh,  good cheer and positive usefulness  arc all primal repuisites in education, and any system of education  which lends to reduce human efficiency, neutralizes and destroys human happiness. "Moreover, any system of education, or wc might say  religion, which is nol a positive  moving force for good is bad.  Some philosopher tells us lhal a  sense of humor i.s more valuable lo  a busy woman than all the latest inventions for making housekeeping  easy.  Robt. Airth, Corporal  S. Allcorn  Edgar L.
