A meeting of local Liberals was  held last night to discuss the  handling of the road work of thc  district. There has been considerable dissatisfaction expressed by  the party following over the manner in which the road work is  being taken care of.  Twenty British Columbia newspapers have been forced lo quit  business since the war began. -It  is right and proper to laud the  boys who have gone to the' battlefields- of * France, -many of ihem  never to return, but let us not forget the "boys" of the paste pot  and quill who stay at-home, and  brave the perils.of bunk and pink  leas, to keep tlie home papers, going,.;  The annual meeting of the Armslrong creamery shareholders was  held last Saturday and the following directors elected: Messrs. Coltart, Patten, Wm. Monk,.Lockhardt,  and Hardy. Mr. Patten was named  as president, and Mi". Hardy, vice.  The report of flic past season's  business showed most gratifying  progress.

This week,  however, hc is reported in the  oflicial casualty list as having died  from wounds. Sam Roberts had a  host of friends in Enderby dislrict  who will mourn his loss. When  he enlisted he abhorred the idea of  going to war, but considered it his  duly to do his bit. lie has paid  the highest price in answer to the  call of duty, but in making the  sacrifice he has died a hero's  death. .  TAXES TO BE INCREASED  Increased > taxation and collccr  tion of arrears which arc expected  to" produce an" additional $3,924,-  '000 in revenue, ancl a decrease in  current outlays will, according to  the figures submitted by Premier  Brewster Tuesday" "dl'ternoon- in  his budget speech, permit the Province for the first time in years to  more than meet necessary outlays  oul of revenue. The Victoria Colonist says the anticipated revenue  i.s placed at $9,808,325, and the expenditure oh current account at  $8,708,570. Jn addition to lhis  outlay there must be expenditure  on capital account ol" ������������������2,032,225.  The gross outlay, therefore, for the  coming year will be ������������������10,800,80'!.  The sur-tax   on   existing sources  of   revenue,    together    with   new  Real property, $400,000; personal  property tax, $300,000; wild, coal  and timber land tax, $050,600; income lax, $1,090,000; tax on  amusement tickets, $100,000; poll  tax, $150,000; sur-tax on succession duties, $200,000. Under the  above heads the revenue now being derived amounts to $2,035,000,  and wilh the increase due to increased laxes and thc effort lhat  will be made lo gel in about onc  million of arrears lhe increase  over lasl year's receipts will chiefly be due.

The   Germans,  they say,   were   fiilly  prepared i'or its.renewal-, and are being stimulated yto> extreme   resistance by their officers.   One of the  correspondents' asserts- that   il   is  one of the most difficult battles of  lhe whole war. - The Germans have  constructed     numerous      trenches  and'  machine   gun   pits,   not   in   a  definite   line,    but   strewn    every  where  in  apparent disorder,  as if  each position had been selected by  accident.     Another   correspondent  writes:   "The   battle   is   extremely  hard  for our men.    It is. a battle  to the death.    So  for all  is vague.  Vghtmg    is    jn   progress-  at    all  points  attained   by  our  men,  and  there  is an  ebb  and   flow  in   the  battle.    Our men were beaten back  for a while by the intensity of the  fire, bul they are attacking again  and   again   going   forward."  Pie. F. R. Kenny was very successful the past week in getting  recruits for the\ Forestry Battalion  and he has been instructed to continue recruiting here for another  week. He- is prepared while in  Enderby to give all information to  anyone desiring lo join the forces  for overseas.

A joint meeting of the Woman's  Club and the Woman's Voter's  League will bc held in the K. of P.  Hall, Enderby, on Saturday, April  2Sth, al 2.30 p.m. All women are  cordially invited.  Owing to a break in health, -Mr.  J. R.

This expression of opinion by a man  of Mr. Wells' calibre, indicates thai flunking  Britishers are beginning lo realize al last whilher  lhc war is leading. The greal question now is,  is Britain prepared lo acl upon lhe suggestion shc  makes for others? is she prepared lo lake the  step she advises other kingdoms to lake, and  glories in thc advance?  There can bc no mistake as lo lhe attitude of  lhe American nation. President Wilson has sel  forth clearly what America stands for. lie has  made il clear lhal thc American people are prepared to fight to free lhc world from all autocratic forms of government and the democratization of lhe world.

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  TOO SERIOUS FOR CHEAP LAUDATION  Great as have heen  the difficulties the Allied  commanders at the front have had to overcome,  and serious as have heen the issues in many of  lhe bailies which have been waged in lhe gigantic struggle on lhc Western front, none that have  gone before counted for so much as lhc issue of  ,Uie present struggle in front of what has been  characterized   as   lhc   Hindenburg   line.      "Thc  grei\l conllagralion spreads and spreads," writes  (1. II. Perris, in lhe Vancouver Provinces, under  Paris dale of April 18th.   "But just because of  lhc vaslness of the bailie now engaged in, wc  musl free our minds from  ideas and standards  belonging lo lhc limited oll'cnsivcs of lhc pasl.  It is now not al all a question of piercing thc  enemy line at this or lhal point.    Such a thing  may very well occur, and, if it docs, il will be  exploited like any olher kind of failure on lhc  other side.    Personally, I  think il more likely  that wc may sec another general retreat.   However lhal may bc, wc should realize that events  arc before us of quite a different military order  from those of lasl year, when the Allies had lo  be content with limited frontages in reward ancl  also in cosl.   ThisGballie may bc long and will  almost certainly produce fluctuations of fortune.  At last wc have reached, however, a clear superiority of available power of all essential kinds,  and thc moment has come when thc total of this  power can bc employed  simultaneously.  -  "Thc  beginning   has   exceeded  expectations.  The enemy has probably now abandoned hope of  launching any  considerable  offensive  in -other  fields.   That is lhc very practical gift of France  and Britain to libcrlcd Russia, and it should bc  appreciated as such.    But the immediate effect  is lo throw upon  thc West, which throughout  has borne two-thirds of the weight of the German strength, all of such reserves as remain to.  him.    The enemy will now throw in every unit  lie can scrape together, and particularly thc trick  lhal remains in his repertoire.   No onc here has  a moment's doubt about the end, but the enormity of thc issue makes cheap laudation and  sensationalism of any kind intolerably offensive."  RADICAL STEP URGED  "LETTUCE SPRAY"  J. Ogden Armour, the American packer, is  strongly urging immediate and radical steps on  the part of the'Government to increase and conserve the food supply of lhc United States, and,  most of the heavy producing states have already  organized to take hold of the proposition in a  systematic way. "This counlry," says Mr. Armour, "will find itself next fall and winter in as  bad a state, so. far as food is concerned, as any of  thc warring nations of Europe. Thc food shortage is world-wide. Thc production in Europe  is worse than cut in half by the war. In the;Argentine there have been droughts ahd great losses  of grain and callle. In our own country the  winler wheat crop has been badly damaged by  cold weather. Now wc have entered thc. war,  our first duly, as 1 sec it, is lo make certain that  both our own people and our allies have an  abundant food supply. Wilh full recognition  of lhc fact thai wc arc facing lhc most critical  days jn our national history, I say that the question of food supply is the most pressing and important before us. From a purely war standpoint, even, food preparedness seems to me quite  as important and more pressing than military  preparedness. Because lhe time is so short and  lhe situation so dangerous, I favor Government  supervision and control of food production and  food prices.   They.have been forced to come lo  You no doubt have heard, sometime in your  varied career, a phrase similar in phonetic ensemble to the above.    And you no doubt have  wondered where the phrase originated.   Wc saw  thc place one day lasl week.   Ii is al Armslrong,  at the delicatessen farm of Alwyn Buckley.   He  showed us over the place���������������������������and under.    In  the  greenhouse he showed us a patch in the lettuce  bed from which he had sold 250 pounds of let-  luce, and it didn't look as if hc had done anything  only thin il out.   Hc has been shipping lettuce lo  Calgary    and    Edmonton    I'or   a   few    weeks,  and the market is clamoring for more.   Jusl lo  look lhc thing over, onc wonders whal Buckley is  going lo do with all lhat lettuce.   Wilhin lhc hoi  house every inch of bedding is given over lo it,  and out of door he has row after row of waxcloth covered hoi beds filled with plants which  arc getting read}' lo take the place of those cut  from   thc hot-house beds and from   lhe fields.  While most people have been waiting for spring  to open and for thc frost period to pass, Mr.  Buckley has been planting ih thc fields lettuce  plants from the hot-beds.   He now has upwards  of two thousand dozen in various stages' of development in thc lettuce fields, besides thc hothouse full and the hotbeds overflowing.   And, in  thc hothouse, under the lettuce bench beds, Mr.  Buckley has beds of delicious rhubarb growing  in thc dark.   From one bed hc sold $75. worth in  thc past month. "Coming along" to lake thc place  of the early lettuce, Mr. Buckley has hotbeds of  baby  spinach  in .several stages  of incubation.  And, in the corners, and cracks and creases and  climbing along thc walls and windows of thc hothouse hc has thc start of a cucumber'forest from  which his tummy-tcascrs grow.   Mr. Buckley recently installed the Skinner System of top irrigation in his hothouse, and is extending it to the  open beds.   As most of these early .vegetables are  from 80 to 87 per cent water,, and the Skinner  System does thc workdn a'few minutes which  would.require at least an hour's labor of two or  three men, it may bc judged how great an improvement is the new spray system.   Thc story of  thc milkman and thc pump isn't in it with the  delicatessen vegetarian who knows how to turn  water into���������������������������ducats.  It is cslimated lhal the value of the dairy produce contributed by British dairy farmers to the  national food supply is between $2,000,000,000  ancl $2,50(3,000,000 per annum:"Milk is estimated  to be cheaper than any other food commodity,  even; af' the prevailing high price-of milk in  England. The cow, it is claimedrby an authority  on farming, gives thc greatest return when the  milk she produces is 'used as milk, but if the  milk is made inlo cheese or even butter the return is still greater ,than that from any other  animal except thc pig.  AN EMPIRE'S MEASURE OF GREATNESS  lhal in Europe. "Let usdolfbbldrc \vc~aic~com-  pclled lo do so. The prices of wheal, corn, live  stock, and other food products have gotten away  from any control but. that of lhc Government.  "Everybody must help. No acre of fertile land  should bc left idle. Equally patriotic is lhe man  who enlists in the army or who, by making "an  extra effort, by undergoing extra exertion and  even hardship, raises more food to supply our  people, our armies and our allies. Unless the  United States wishes to walk deliberately into a  catastrophe the best brains of thc country, under  Government direction, musl immediately devise  means of increasing and conserving our food  supply."  NEW SALES MANAGER FOR CENTRAL  The directors of the Okanagan Uniled Growers  have appointed 11. W. Morgan as sales manager.  Mr. Morgan, who assumes his duties next month,  will have entire charge of the selling operations  of Central, and conies to thc United Growers  very highly recommended. He is at present  manager of the Lethbridge Mercantile Company,  Ltd., and was previously manager of thc Brown  Fruit Co., Ltd., of Edmonton. Hc has had  ycars of experience in the marketing of fruit  and vegetables, and holds the good will of the  Iradc throughout thc prairie provinces.  Another instance of marvelous surgery during  the. war. A young man was wounded in the arm.  It was necessary to take the arm oil', and the surgeon responsible for the operation cut some bone  out of thc, amputated limb, put the arm on again,  sewed the tendons together, and now the arm is  so well that the patient can use it. Thc difference  between the two arms is lhat thc injured one is  about -Vi inches shorter lhan thc olher.  Speaking on this subject recently in London,  Father Bernard Vaughan said that, proud as wc  had a right lo be of the extent and population and  wealth of the Empire, its real greatness was to be  measured not by ils material splendor, but by the  character of ils people; and the chief engravers  of character, he said, were heredity and-environment. At present, in thc city of London, environment is destroying soinc of our brave soldiers  more quickly than machine guns. Thc need, hc  said, was for belter homes for thc people, "and  wc must have Ihem if il cosl five millions a day to  build them; and they must not have written over  I hrdfiniyJChihlrfMi-nol-needed-hero." .When- the  present war is finished, he predicted a war at  home, and wc ought to begin to build character  now. He saw the danger-signal of industrial discontent. Me was told that soldiers would, want to  go on Ihe land; bul Ihey would want nothing of  the kind���������������������������nol even with a minimum wage of 25s.  He saw lhc danger-signal of a lack of teachers,  and the terrible, cruel danger-signal of lhe birth-  rale. 11 had never been so low as now, and it was  going to bc much lower after the war. There  wouid nol only he fewer men lo become fathers,  bul so many women unfilled to become mothers,  and so many unwilling lo bend lo thc yoke of  motherhood.  NORTHERN  GROWN...
