Telephone   Services   Combined, charge  of  20c   for  throe  minute
conversations    and    a1- maximum
Linemen of  the* Okanagan Telephone Company were in ,Enderby
this rweek   connecting    the    local
Government telephone ollice, at the
post oflice, with  the local  Okanagan telephone exchange.    Manager
Dobie states that connections have
been made or willbe completed in
a  few  days  at  all   points  in   the
Valley where the two systems arc
to  be  connected, 'and   the  entire
telephone   service - of   the   Valley
will be given --connection over the
Okanagan    Telephone    Company's
complete system.   Thus every district   tapping   into* the   Okanagan,
whether over the Government line
or   the   Okanagan 'line,  will   have
access and be open to every subscriber of the  established  system.
This is a vast improvement on the
old  policy, of  running paralleling
lines, and /will" "give all districts u

THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 1917  MOVIE CENSOR NOT NARROW  A newspaperman whose opinion we hold very  highly writes us from Vancouver to say that we  are off on thc wrong loot in our remarks about  the movie censor in connection with what \yns cut  out of thc masterplay "Intolerance." He says thc  censor, prior to taking up thc work of that office,  was onc of the brightest newspapermen in Western Canada. This fact makes us feci very sore al  ourselves for having said anything. Did wc know  this fact before wc never should have said anything about mutton-head ollicialdor.i���������������������������even if we  did think it. We arc informed, too,- that the censor himself is bound by certain hard and fast  rules, and that so many iilms are passing through  thc ollice that it requires a considerable force to  pass on them.  We appreciate the information imparted by  our friend, and particularly the good personal  ([ualitics of the movie censor. Wc would not do  him or thc ollice an injustice. The point wc desired to bring out. was more in connection with  thc general policy of picture censorship. Why  censor what the public is given to see any more  than what thc public is given lo read? Or what  thc public is permitted to sec in thc spoken play?  /nie.people^areJhc best judges of what they wish  ^Li-JA^. 1'*-v./ YJ������������������^-^^^-* ���������������������������������������������.w __^���������������������������^���������������������������j^__t^_____-__ ,^--^-t-3 -  to read, or sec, or hear; and they will iKnri5e^iveiT  from the pulpit, or thc stage, or thc press that  which is distasteful. Perhaps when the movies  first made their appearance there was a tendency  lo a certain coarseness; but today thai has been  pul oil" thc boards; and the censoring seems to be  morc of ideas and the conception of ideas���������������������������the  type of* suppression--which-made the Dark Ages  dark. Censoring movies is on a par with suppression of* authors,ror restricting editorial ideas  in the public press. It plucks thc pep out of play  plots. I  Under certain  regulations net fishing is now I  permitted by law in the lakes of this Province.I  Under these regulations net fishing is confined 1  to gill nets and drag seines.   The gill nets must  iied exceed two   hundred   yards,  and   the   mesh  must not he less than three inches.   Drag seines  must nol exceed 100 yards of net, and the mesh  must   not   be   less   than   two   inches   extension  measure.  ECONOMY IN MORE MILK  shown that a quart of milk contains as much energy producing substance as 11 ounces of sirloin  steak, or 12 ounces of round steak; 8 1-2 eggs or  10.7 ozs. of fowl; and in protein is the equivalent  of 7 ozs of sirloin steak or 6 ozs. of round steak:  4.3 eggs or 8.6 ozs of fowl.  Frank H. Simonds says the world's butcher  bill to feed thc cannon on all the fighting fronts  for April and May alone amounted Jo ..nearly one  million men. At this rate it should not take so  very long to bring about that freedom and safety  and permanent peace which all. nations engaged  claim to be fighting for.  THE RUSSIAN PUZZLE  Despite the optimistic reports coming from  Russia, based more on hope than on fact, the  situation seems to be drifting from bad to worse.  From authentic sources in Petrograd, a dispatch  says, the story of Minister of War Kerensky's  struggles with the enormous government problems in the face of his physical disabilities, comes  as a surprise and a disappointment. Often he is  carried on a litter to transact public business. At  other times he braces himself and addresses thc  great assemblages with a blazing fervor until he  suddenly faints. Strikes and plunder are spreading throughout the land. In Finland the soldiers  are doing as they like. Forty thousand workmen  are idle in Petrograd, and it is prophesied thc  number will reach 100,000 in a fortnight. The  paper ruble, worth, under normal conditions, the  same as our 50 cent piece, has sunk to 20 cents.  Swedish agents just returned to Stockholm from  Russia warn the"Swedes, against extending credit  business in Russia, declaring that the threatened  counter-revolution will be followed by- anarchy  and bankruptcy. M. Nekarsov, minister of communication, is quoted as saying: "The position  is extremely difficult, and the most menacing  hour of thc Russian revolution is near. During  thc ncxt few weeks the fate of Russia must be  decided. If thc country will not assist thc government and co-operate with it in re-establishing  order, I see no way out of the situation."  These ideas seem to be based upon actual conditions in Russia. On the other hand, only the  other day in Washington, Prof. Boris Bakhmc-  tieff, head of the Russian mission to America, is  quoted as saying: "Russia is for the establishment  of a firm and lasting peace between democratic  nations. The new Russia is organizing its armies  for action in connection wilh its allies. Russia  will not fail to be a worthy' partner in the league  of honor."  EFFECTIVE ADVERTISING  During lhc war, both in Canada and Great  Britain, it has been demonstrated beyond question that thc advertising columns of the press  can bc used effectively in promoting thc business  of a Government. Since the war began the Canadian Government has conducted sixteen distinct  advertising campaigns. Canadian provincial governments also arc using paid advertising space in  their work. The Ontario Government has conducted six advertising campaigns. Three campaigns have been put on by thc Government of  British Columbia, and the Alberta Government  has just concluded its first campaign.  There is indisputable evidence of the success of  everyone of these advertising campaigns. For  instance, the first advertising campaign of the  Canadian Government was the apple campaign  TlTercTAVere^GSiOOO^individuaUrequests  The Right Furnace  McClary's Sunshine Furnace is absolutely right���������������������������right in idea, in design j  in construction, in price and in performance.

FULTON HARDWARE CO., Ltd  King  A name that stands for the best in hotel service  KingEdwardHotel,^^^^ Enderby  "Economy in the diet docs not always depend  upon limiting the use of certain foods," declares  the United States department of agriculture in a  bulletin just issued, "but sometimes it is a question of actually increasing the use of foods which  furnish nutritive material at relatively low cost.  Milk belongs to the latter class, and the housewife  would do well lo study its food value, and decide  whether her family is using as much as it should.  The average person in this counlry uses only a  little more than a half-pint of milk daily, and this  quantity can very profitably be increased when  safe milk is available. Many people think of  milk only as a beverage, but if they understood  lhat it is in reality a nourishing food, they  would increase their daily allowance.  In a table published by the department it is  ot iyi4,   i.uv-1^ ������������������> \.i^ ^^,~���������������������������    for information in response to this advertising,  and at thc close of the campaign many wholesale  apple dealers reported increases in the sale of  Canadian  apples-for domestic consumption  of  from 200 to 400 per cent.   In the spring of 1915  educational advertising was used to impress upon  the farmers of Canada the need of increased agricultural production in view of the War, and to  suggest- means -of-.meeting that need.._ This campaign resulted in an increase of over 10 per cent  in the area under cultivation and, in conjunction  with good weather conditions, in record yields  per acre.   Thc value of Canada's farm production  for 1915 was over $300,000,000 in excess of the  previous high record.   The domestic war loans  have been floated through educational advertising instead of through thc customary method of  underwriting.   Thc aggregate amount asked for  in these loans was $250,000,000; more than twice  that amount was subscribed.   Thc underwriting  of these loans would have cost over $3,000,000.!  Thc advertising  of  thc  three  loans cost  about'  $130,000.   Thc need of thrift and saving in view  of thc war was emphasized in a series of Government advertisements.   This scries was followed  by the advertising of Government war loans, debenture stock and war savings certificates.    On  March 29, 1917, thc Canadian Minister of Finance  in summarizing thc results of thc thrift campaign  reported that the savings of the people of Canada  during the previous two ycars had been at least  $500,000,000.   This amount represented the payments on the first two war loans, thc debenture  stock and thc war savings certificates plus thc  net increase in thc savings deposits in the chartered banks in Canada.   These figures should be  considered in conjunction with thc fact that the  population of Canada is less than eight million.  These few illustrations will serve to suggest  the nature and thc results of Government advertising in Canada.  : Ask _for_some of those choice  pieces of corn beef we have in  brine waiting your order.

A WOMAN'S IMPRESSIONS  Edilor Enderby Press: Dear Sir���������������������������Kindly allow  me space in your paper for a woman's view on  attending the meeting on the 7th at Grindrod:  Its object was to have been to discuss with the  member roads and roadforeman.   After listening  for two and a half hours, it really was disappointing1���������������������������amusing as well as interesting���������������������������for it felt  one was really in si school house with a lot of big  grown boys still in short pants, hotly squabbling  over some matters, resulting to almost personal  quarrels.   It was disappointing as so many ratepayers being there, conveniently many important  questions for  the better welfare  of  the  community  should  have, been  discussed.    So  one  could see a true reflex, the result of political  division.   It was amusing how our M.P.P., like a  gallant woer, treated the audience as though it  were a blushing maiden, with beautiful oratorical  bouquets.   He graciously enlightened his hearers,  how to a nicety the pre-election promises can be  , dodged, and so well impressed it on their memory that all former resolutions were forgotten.  Mr. Macdonald thought, and expressed himself so, that Mr. Little was part and parcel of a  huge political machine; attending every convention, opposing and hindering Dr. Macdonald at  all his previous campaigns.   Granting it be so,  those following the evolution of the political situation in the district, even the most biased, must  concede, if the doctor's election to parliament  took that much longer, he came forth that much  stronger, therefore no hard feeling should exist  between them.  Though I am the only one wishing to register  a kick (not because Mr. Owen is appointed, but  in the manner of his appointment.)    Mr. Macdonald stated that in his former campaigns certain consideration Mr. Owen had shown him, and  as he is situated, consequently is deserving thc  position.   Why, what else is it but patronage? Is  the world denude of all else that efficiency for a  good public servant can only be found in the  Liberal.association?   Or is efficiency, ,wanted for  the new machine?    There is another .force to  reckon ywilh;- it will wait and see, and govern it-  . self accordingly. .7  : The complaint, of Enderby teams doing road-  work in Grindrod isVthe lack of .mutual understanding V S,o soon as the appropriation by. the  " superintendent for each division is. made and the  foreman acquainted as to where itjyis.to be,.applied, put notices out to that effect a week'ahead  so farmers1 around can arrange" their- work accordingly! and canbeaMhe disposal; of-the ^foreman.   Such information' would avoid disappointment and save considerable running about looking for men.  The taxpayers have totpay f or it all.  Mr. Skyrme's appeal and plea for those on the  hills was.very much appreciated, but; remember,  they are only victims of an unjust system.   To  Mr. Macdonald's assertion that the discussion of  road work" was 'getting monotonous, and that  there.were more important questions to.decide.  He already did, and was prepared to do far more  for us at the assembly house.   Yes, so much, that  some unkind one accused him of being almost a  Socialist.   Perhaps-Dr. Macdonall"is not cognizant that the Socialists helped to swell the count of  the ballots in his favor.  He had better study and  precept its logic, and turn out to be a.good sound  economist, otherwise our representative will very  much resemble a roaring lion with a broken paw.  He^ill^^rbirabl^tb^scrap^those^corporation  lawyers hovering around the assembly house that  hc so bitterly complained of to us.   Before his  term is out, he will need all the forceful intellect  he can acquire so to cope with the new situations  that are bound to arise.  The suggestion of forming an association on  non-political lines, and the willingness of our  member-elect to do and help what is in his power  so long as it is for the advancement of he com-_  munity, should receive from the ratepayers every  consideration, for it would bring forth a better  mutual.understanding as to wherc amends could  be made.  Mr. Macdonald implored his audience to cease  squabbling, as there are higher ideals to aspire to.  Yes, so there are! But men must first let go of  their divisioned political kite, and join the force  of unity, whose mission is to bc. Work for the  good of the community. Men, and the newly enfranchised women, it can bc done. That's up to  you. Then, and only then, will the pendulum of  time harmoniously swing pointing toward Progress. ���������������������������Mrs. Thos. Gray, Mara.  We had taken them too literally, and had been  lulled into a state of self-satisfaction that was not  to our good.  "The Canadian press has kept strictly in touch  with the rest of the country in this respect. While  we have done many things very well, we have  incidentally, like thousands of others, found in  the war an opportunity to grind our own little  hatchets, to pay out our own little grouches, and  in particular found an opportunity of rejoicing  in saying to various people 'I told you so.' We  have had from the Canadian newspapers very  little leadership, and that is due partially to the  fact of the disappearance of the value of editorial  pages. The result is we must share in the responsibility of the appalling condition of things  in the country today���������������������������a condition of national  paralysis���������������������������whose great tragedy is that there is  no reason for it. There never was a time when  there was so little actual division among the  Canadian people nor a time when the people were  so ready for some generous current of thought  or some active leadership that would crystalize  us into a united nation."  No one will deny the truth of these statements.  The press of Canada, like the people of Canada,  must bear its share of the responsibility.   When  the war started, every public man and every  newspaper started the old practice of whistling  to keep up courage, and once started there was no  turning back.   Immediately everything Ally was  right and everything enemy was wrong.    Mistaking  mummery  for  patriotism  we all were  mum.   Ostrich-like we poked our heads in the  hole presided over by the censor and set about to  paint all our faults virtues and to make of mistakes brilliant episodes.   Criticism was pounced  upon as evidence of disloyalty.   We have clung  to the flimsiest kind of argument to carry a bold  front, ignoring facts and refusing to face them.  The press must bear its share of the blame, if  blame there be, but no more than its share.   The  press adopted the line of least resistance, that is  all.   Readers wanted nothing stronger than sugar  pills, and sugar pills were given.' To do anything  else might, arouse the ire of some^ fighting man  who preferred to fight by proxy and remained  home to tell how it should be done.   So long as  one was "killing* Kaiser Bill with his mouth,"  morning, noon ancl night, he considered he was  "doing his bit',' nobly.   And the press has only  followed the example of press readers;   Not that  the press was deceived, or that it "desired tp deceive.   But it thought at the beginning, and,has  been thinking ever since that "the Avar will soon  be over," and that it would be. time enough then  to express some plain facts. -.The same, with the  parsons.. They are much blamed for not telling  their congregations "some plain facts." ; But they  knbw.V They-know just howrlittle their congre-  gatohs want to hear "plain facts," arid they?tell  them sugared euphonies that leave their.hearers  still nestling in self-conceit and a delightful in:  ward satisfaction.    All*of us approach God as  much as to say, "Here, Old Fellow, we are all  right in this matter���������������������������we know it���������������������������and we want  you. to get a little busy and help us kill those  enemies who call- upon Y'ou as their deliverer.;  Help us to gather in a few more enemy, colonies  and if, you know of anything else belonging to the  enemy that we can get our hands oh, help us,  Lord, to. take it." And then we go home and paste  the kaiser with another "plum pudding"���������������������������and  the kaiser's God-fearing subjects pray likewise  fluently and pull off another.raid on thc English  coast.   All in the-name of Christ Jesus our Lord!  NOT WORRYING ABOUT BIRTH RATE  WHERE DOES RESPONSIBILITY LIE ?  Addressing the Canadian Press at an open  meeting in Toronto a few nights ago, on "The  Responsibilities of thc Press in Connection with  the War," J. W. Dafoe, of Winnipeg, pointed out  how public opinion, even in Germany, was  formed by journalists, writers, parsons and professors, whose main means were in ideas. With  regard to Canada, Mr. Dafoe said some things  not complimentary to the press, ancl yet, he told  what every reasonable mind must recognize as  the truth. He said we Canadians have been too  ready to accept the compliments which had been  paid us from Great Britain and the United States.  _. A correspondent writing^from London says the  young women of~England are rioTVmuchrxon-  cerned about the falling birth rate and the fearful  national consequences of infant mortality. This  correspondent savs thc English girls are so addicted to cigarettes that psychologists fear the  nation will have to pay the price in a new generation of rickety, weedy children. In this the  long-bearded sages might be right, but nobody  seems to care. No man, says this correspondent,  who knows enough to take his spoon out .of-his  cup will think of passing up thc ladies when he  offers cigarettes with after-dinner coffee. He is  bound to give them a chance to turn down thc  proffered pill, if any of them are non-smokers.  Women smoke as much as men in thc restaurants and in the loungerooms of hotels. Thnt  would appear to bc a mere foible of the girls; but  it isn't. Several government ollices and business  firms employing girl clerks have set aside smoking rooms for their benefit and in the tea rooms  scattered everywhere about London women patronize the smoking room almost as do the men.

The whole story involves a young boy who has  tbeen incorrigible until he has had occasion to  come in contact with the great Boy Scout move-  * ment. He eventually joins, and becomes one of  its most worthy members. The boy's father,  like himself until he became reformed, possessed/,  all the earmarks of an outright criminal.. On one  occasion after the boy joins .the scouts he is  called upon to chase a house-breaker, whom he  ' afterwards discovers.to.be his own father.   ,The,_  story  goes  on  through Interesting  detail; and. ;  eventually the father, ofi the boy and the, man  whose house he had robbed, become reconciled, -  really through: the;; influence of the' Boy .Scout \;  movement.

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, June 28,1917  Cubs Have Their Revenge  The Enderby mjirried men's  baseball team has been growing  thin at the top, and, realizing that  sooner or later they would have  to give way to the younger fans,  they have been giving the Cubs  two "lessons" a week. Now, the  Cubs have a lot of good baseball  material in their aggregation, and  lhcy "took to" the lessons like  goslins to water. They even got so  they could take defeat with a  smile, and could .joke at themselves���������������������������aiid, you know, when a  fellow can do that he's "getting  on." But! the Cubs have had a  feeling for some time that they had  learned tl\e lesson of defeat quite  well enough, and, like the rest of  the world,!;they wanted to taste the  delights of Victory.

But no  man could forsee what has taken  place, and no man can yet tell  what the future has in store. We  have adopted in Canada thc policy  of "muddling through," so characteristic of the British spirit. It  is. a poor policy, no doubt, but a  democratic policy. Some day, we  hope to see the development of a  truly democratic scientific government, but if this is ever to be, then  democracy must, in a degree, take  on an autocracy which will have  the power tot control and manage  the affairs of the nation as scientifically as the affairs of any large  manufacturing or financial institution. In other words, the management of the affairs of state will  be taken out of politics���������������������������out of the  hands of the people���������������������������and placed  in the hands of experts schooled  and trained for that purpose. If  the ordinary business institution  were to attempt to muddle through  as our democracy muddles along  it would be in the bankruptcy  courts in a year. Men are placed  in control of the people's business  because they are Conservative or  Liberal���������������������������not because they are  capable or have>any administrative  ability. Millions of the people's  wealth, and the lives of the people,  are placed in their keeping, without their having any proven ability  whatever. And then we look to  these men to keep the ship of state  sailing safely lhe seas of commerce and politics. As well put in  charge of a deckhand the safety  of an ocean liner and set out to  cross the ocean.  But this is the world's present  conception of democracy. We do  not believe it is going to bc the  conception of democracy in future  for there are already evidences of  most striking changes. The almost instantaneous change of thc  United States from the recognized  democratic policy to that of onc of  the soberest of autocracies, in order to accomplish a stated purpose, has been an object lesson to  the world, and points the way to  greater things  in  this direction.  "The Borden Government is the  tool of the trusts," is one of the  commonest shriekings of the Liberal press. There cannot be any  doubt that the Borden Government has a great deal yet to accomplish in the way of control of  the trusts in Canada, but the cry  that the Government is the puppet  of the trusts is most nonsensical.  To a very large extent, the Borden  tTovernnient^hl!T^followed=the=ex^  ample of the British government in  handling matters of state. There  undoubtedly has been an undue  amount of what people delight to  characterize as "muddling." But  if these same people were "on the  inside" and could sec the outlook  from a different perspective, the  "muddling" would-_noL. appear, so  Afternoon Tea  10c  Ice Cream served  in our Tea Room  MONTH END SALE  AND  HOLIDAY REQUIREMENTS  Tiy a Cool Soda  or Ice Cream in  our Tea Room, also  at Candy Counter  MONTH END SALE  13.50��������������������������� Wool Blankets ���������������������������S2.00  Wrool Witney Blankets, full bed  size;  Month End Sale..$2.00 each  55c���������������������������VOILE���������������������������25c  42-inches wide, in Ecru only, for i  drawers, waists, etc.; special!      25c yard  WOMEN'S  HOSE  Women's  white   Lisle   Hose,   sizes  8%,    9,    9%,    10;    extra    special,     25c   pr.
