THURSDAY, JUNE   4, 1917  REPORT OF INDIAN COMMISSION  Thc report ol* thc commission on Indian reserves in B. C. is at last before the Provincial and  Dominion Governments, alter three ycars of  labor ancl an expense ol" $400,000. The report  makes interesting reading for lhe citizens ol* the  Okanagan. While ignoring thc Indian reserve  policy of thc Government, thc commission made  an examination of thc situation ol* existing reserves, reducing some of them in size, confirming others and adding new ones. Anyone expecting that the commission would recommend  wholesale alteration of reserves in order to throw  them open I'or settlement, will bc disappointed  in the commission's report.  Of the Penticton reserve, comprising 48,000  acres, lhc commission recommends that 14,060  acres bc cut off. This includes roughly an area  from Trout Creek south to a point about halfway between thc southern end of thc lake and-the  confluence of Siwash Creek and Okanagan river.  Thc entire balance of the feserve, 33,709 acres, is  confirmed. Two small timber reserves held for  lhe Indians in Penticton arc also cut oil'. Of thc  Westbank reserve, an area of 1764 acres is cut  oil',; leaving 674.  Of the Enderby reserve 1680 acres is cut oil".  This  would  mean   that  portion  of  the reserve  iyiiyg^lT^tliiirTVlalju^  river from Enderbv.   Thc Swan Lake reserve of  68 acres norlh of Vernon is ci.it oil", as is nlso lhe  128 acre reserve on Long Lake. All olher reserves  in the Okanagan arc confirme 1, including lhc  valuable reserve at thc head ofthc arm at lhe  norlh end of Okanagan Lake.  According to the valuations received by the  commission, lhe Indian reserves in lhe Okanagan  A'a I lew confirmed lo: lhe. Indians ...arc. cstima ted to  be worlh from $2,757,710 to $3,077,058. The  total area confirmed lo thc Indians is 127,391  acres. The area cut oil' is 18,538 acres, estimated  at from $118,959 lo $671,211. In llie whole Province the value of the reserves confirmed lo thc  Indians i.s placed a I from $17,639,1-19 lo $19,890,-  ().().    The lolal area confirmed i.s 666,0-10 acres.  that famine is abroad in the world, and will be  followed by pestilence as certainly as night follows day.   Only the improvident will ignore the  signs of the times  From Washington comes the report, evidently  based upon observations of the American  commissioners sent to Russia a few weeks ago,  lhat "hope of an Allied victory in 1917 has gone/'  and lhe frank admission is made that American  plans are being predicated upon thc probability  of a I least three ycars of war. The statement is  made that "il is no longer a secret that as an  offensive factor Russia has collapsed and is out of  thc military plans for a year a I least, and more  probably for good. "France has passed the high  point of her efficiency, and can bc counted on to  do nothing more than hold her own," says this  report, and the statement is made that "England,  while still on the upgrade from a military viewpoint has almost reached her high point, and,  economically, is on the downgrade."  The other report comes from London, where,  it is said, the outlook is regarded with greater  satisfaction. "The schemes of the pacifists seem  to have failed, ancl the governments and peoples  of Britain and France are rallying strongly towards the policy of maintaining the war until  Germany is overcome." This statement is significant, but not more so than the statement  which follows it: "The Stockholm conference  seems likely to favor the policy of a league of  nations; a Europe disarmed; a general compensation fund to which every belligerent shall subscribe in proportion to war expenditure; certain  territorial readjustments, including Polish nationalization under conditions favoring German  dominance; the division of Alsace and Lorraine  between France and Germany; international control of disrupted African territories ancl international control of European Turkey.

The meeting was interesting, but, lo a majority of the  people present, most disappointing.  Whether justly or unjustly, the  people of Grindrod district have  felt for some time > lhat they were  not getting fair treatment at the  hands of the provincial representative, either of the former government or of thc present.    They re-  Mr. Owen.

Mr. Skyrme referred in a general  way to the intention of the people  of the district lo organize a farmers' society at Grindrod, the same  to be non-political, which would  take up and deal with all matters  of welfare to the section - represented, and he desired to know if  sented what they consider an in-;such  justice in their''interests net being  consulted when appointments are  made or work is mapped out.

Mr. Wells offered a resolution  calling upon the Superintendent of  Iloads to cancel thc appointment  of Mr. Owen, and asking lhat the  within the district. Thc great majority of those at the meeting were  deeply in earnest in the larger purpose of lhc meeting, and, so far as  lhcir district is concerned, at least,  they desired to put an end to the  patronage system'. And, further,  they wished to go on record  against the practice of politicians  ��������������������������� in making pre-election promises  which are quickly forgotten or  sidestepped, .as-soon as the politicians get into office.  These were the larger objects of  the meeting, . but, owing to the  manner in which the'meeting was  handled, the larger objects were  completely outdared by the pyrotechnics of a pleasant little neighborly quarrel, and after two and  one-half hours of squabbling the  meeting adjourned without a vote  being taken on anything.  However,, the atmosphere was  somewhat clarified; at least, those  who felt most strongly that they  had a. grievance were enabled to  work it off,��������������������������� perhaps largely  against each, other,���������������������������nevertheless  they got rid of it. And all seemed  to feel the better for it. The.meeting, in fact, seemed to be a min'.a-  turc of the great world dispute,  and the great unsolved problem of  it all was "who's 'we', who's 'us',  and what are we here for."  II. T. Twigg was asked to take  the chair. In doing so he referred  somewhat vaguely to the meeting  not being fhe result of any corner  store dictation or the agitation of  a discredited press. It. was a public  meeting and  he threw it open  to  matter of selecting a man for the  position be left to the meeting.  This brought Mr.  Macdonald  to  his feet.   He did not wish to see a  vote taken on the resolution before  he had a chance to explain.    His  explanations  carried  him  through  a bewildering maze of political bypath's in  order to show the difficulties the Government at Victoria  was up against in its attempts to  give the people of-lhe Province a  clean administration, and to prove  the   unswervingness   of   the   rigid  policy of the Hon.  Mr.  Brewster,  the leader, above all others unalterably  opposed  to  perpetuating  the  patibnage system of the past.    He  referred  -to   the   large   sums   of  money said to have been given by  railroad - builders     and     charter  mongers for political purposes; but  deftly   sidestepped   the   $15,000���������������������������  pardon -us, the Sl'1,950���������������������������mentioned  in  connection with  his namesake,  the   attorney-general.     He  told   of  ���������������������������?5,000,000   being -.overpaid   to   the  builders of the C.N.R., which the  Government is endeavoring to get  back, and divulged a lot of political information which, like a "red  herring," weaned his hearers gradually from the points of' local application.    II was all .done so graciously  that  the  audience  seemed  to   enjoy    it���������������������������like    witnessing   a  gopher   in   lhc   process   of   heing  swallowed   by   its   Indigo   friend.  flC���������������������������was. interrupted  repeatedly, by  .an-yone^desir-ing^tO-Jia.v.e^anything.  to'say  relating io the  objects set questions, and these brought forth  lengthy answers. Then questions  of a local nature would be asked by  other questioners of the questioners, which in turn would- lead  to an exchange of personalities  mcie or less overheated. This process was continued  until  adjourn-  forth in the call for thc meeting.  Wm'. Monk desired first to know  thc boundaries of the district, and  he was informed that they were  from Enderby north to and including Mara.

Mc  was in addition, an emergency  fund out of which any new work  decided necessary might be undertaken. He was then asked how  much of lhe $700 or $800 had already, been expended, and he replied thai hc did not know.  Thos. Skyrme took the floor, and,  admitted that he had made certain  statements to the people of Grindrod and Mara. In fact, on every \  platform he bad staled boldly that j  he was opposed to the patronage  system'. He was slill opposed to it,  and so was his chieflan, Mr. Brewster.    Indeed, Mr.  Brewster felt so  speaking for lhe settlers and farm- strongly    about   it    lhat    he,    im-f*.  crs who were instrumental in call- mediately on laking oflice, made a  ing the meeting, said he did not clean sweep of every road supermini iik it was fair for teams and men tendent. and road foreman in the  from outside the district to be j Province.

He was an old friend,  ancl he believed if anyone deserved  the position he did. The appointment had been made by the road  engineer.  At this juncture, W. G. McKenzie, j  president of the Vernon Liberal  Association, said he desired-to. explain. He had heard the name? of  others mentioned as being responsible for.Mr. Owen's appointment. But it was he himself who  recommended Mr. Owen to the  road engineer, and he had referred  the engineer" to ,the ollicers of thc  Enderby Liberal Association for  their endorsation of Mr. Owen.  Mr. Dever, assistant road engineer, in answer to questions, said he  had found Mr. Owen's first road report a very good one.

He- said he. had tried it,  and thought it was worth all of  $700 to work on the grader one  month. He intimated lhat the  road -machinery had outgrown its  usefulness.  T. W. Lidstone appealed to Mr.  Macdonald and the/road engineer  to take up the question of building  a short piece of road to give the  settlers on the hill access to their  properties, and they promised to  look into the matter, particularly  since the farmers on-the low lands  were prepared to get along with  as little repair work as possible jon  existing roads so as to save the  money for the opening of the new  to a d���������������������������a sk e"c Vf o r. .

C.  Where Canada's Manhood Musl Go  In his speech explaining why he  had to bring in conscription, Sir  Robert Borden said in Parliament  that Canada is faced with two alternatives, to let.the four divisions  at the front dwindle to one or to  introduce compulsory service. Sir  Robert described thc need for men  at the front as being urgent, insistent and imperative. There is a  need for men in all the branches  of the service at the front, hc said.  The most urgent need is for men  physically fit to go into the trenches. For the year ending May 1,  1917, there were enlisted in Canada, 85,300 men, and during the  same period the casualties numbered 75,492 ancl up to the present  time there has been 99,029.
