 #  PRES  Enderby, B._C, November 1, 1917  AND      W A  LKER'S  WEEKLY  Vol. 10; No.36; Whole No. 488  LIEUTENANTS GLEN  Honored by Citizens of Enderby and District  The citizens of Enderby and district  honored  themselves  by  honoring the first  active-service boys  to' come home from the front���������������������������ahd  honoring them so well.   The complimentary,   supper   given. in   the  Opera House last Monday   evening  was an affair that should bc long  remembered.   To the ladies of the  district, who provided so sumptuously   for   the    tables,; too   much  praise cannot bc given".   In fact, it  made onc feel, to look at the tables  that it would be rather an embarrassing   moment   for   all   had   the  -Canadian  food "controller come in  upon the   gathering.     However, it  was   more   an   outpouring   of  'the  good will of the people" in a desire  to do justice to the occasion, than  any desire to ignore the pleadings  of the  food  controller in  the  interest    of    food   economy.      Two  hundred  people were  entertained,  representative  of  the  district.     It  was  a  glad  welcome  home,  even  for   only   a   few   days,   of   Flight  Lieutenant   James    Glen   and   his  brother,   Sub-Lieutenant    Kenneth  '. Glen, and an effort to express in a  small   way  at  least,  the  pride  of  our citizens in having.the honor to  receive these boys who have won  conspicuous   decoration    for   bravery   in   action.     The   affair   was  planned to be a simple supper, but  when the tables were laid and provision had to'be made for so many  guests, it developed inlo a banquet  of rather  pretentious  proportions.  Admirable  speeches  were  given  in reply to toasts by Messrs. Smedley, Welsh and Brown, and Revs.  J. A. Dow and J. H. Gretton, Mayor  ���������������������������Dill and City Clerk Rosoman, with  - songs and recitations by Miss Robinson, Mr. Gibbs, Mr. Kent, Mr.  Hatt and Mr. Winter.   Mr. Harkins  - gave much' appreciated selections  on'the clarionet, and'Mrs. F. Dill a  piano sonata, which was excellently, rendered and entnusiastically  received.  The feature of the evening, however, was the talk given by Lieut.  Jas.-Glen, on the general handling  of a flying unit on the battle, front.  Men who have iiever been nearer  than. O.'OOO miles to the fighting  line can now and then find a hearing for Iheir "fine writing," ambiguity and verboschess, but when  a man talks who has been there  and knows, then only clo we see in  the simple word, and the clear,  direct, honest way of expressing  his thought, just .what war means.  In lucid language, remarkably well  chosen, Lieut. Glen told the story  of what the eye of the British and  French armies must do on the battle front. It was a story devoid of  any boasting of air supremacy, superior marksmanship or outstanding achievement. It did not laud  our own fighting power and deprecate that of the enemy. He did  not breath a word of hate for the  men he went thousands of feet into  "the^airtb^bring^downrnor'-didHie  undervalue the fighting qualities  of thc airmen he had opposed and  brought down. He clid not breath  a. word of "chestiness" for the big  things he himself had ' accomplished���������������������������in fact, he told nothing  of wdiat had taken place in any air  raid hc was ever sent upon; nothing of thc heroism required by the  boys in the flying corps; nothing  of them going, up and coming  down to.death.  All air squadrons al the front, hc  said, arc made up of miits of eight  machines and two spares. These  are under command of the army  commander, and each unit works  within certain lines extending over  a front of varied mileage, depending upon thc concentration of the  enemy ancl the objects to be attained. He described in passing  the general difference between the  one-man and 'the two-man flying  machines, and the general purpose  to which these machines are put.  some fly close to the ground and  are in direct touch by wireless  with the artillery, and direct thc  fire upon the enemy. Others arc  for general recoqnoitering, aerial  photography, etc. It is. possible,  he said, to. photograph the enemy's  trench system on a clear day from  a height of 20,000 fect.and so clearly are the objects shown when the  picture is enlarged that it is possible to see the men in the trenches.  Each sector is photographed  daily when the weather permits,  or as occasion requires, and thus  a record is kept of every movement of troops by thc enemy, and  by this means, too, it is made possible to accurately lay out a sector  into squares so as 'to enable the artillery to drop bombs on any given  position day or night and clean it  up. Speaking of the fighting machines, the class he has driven,  Lieut. Glen modestly told a story  which held thc large audience at  the tables deeply absorbed.   There  was not a harsh note sounded by  this boyish hero of thc air. He did  not praise   the  flying  men   of the  enemy, nor  clid   hc   belittle  them.  The daily work of the lighting men  of thc air   starts   at   daylight and  ends at dark.   One is called, say at  2 a.m.    Hc dresses and is served  with  the ever-present  cup  of  tea  whether he wants it or  not.    He  then  proceeds to  his macl.'  assisted   aboard,  strapped   in,   ...S  rudder turned  over and  away he  goes.   The machines go up one at  a time, ancl form in flight formation far up in the air.   They fly in  three-hour  shifts.    Thc  object  of  the  fighting machines is th  clean  up the air within their allotted sector.      Conditions    are    somewhat  different  now to  what 'they were  some   months    ago.      Today,   onc  mounts into the air after a single  machine, only to find perhaps 30  or 40 ready for him; others dive  into what looks like a single-man  machine ancl "easy meat," and discover when too .late that it carries  two   men   and   heavy   guns.     Our  casualties,  he   said,   in the flying  corps are in a large measure due  to the eagerness of inexperienced  men to   get   into   the   fray.     One  must learn a lot of tricks by actual  lighting  experience  which   cannot  be learned in any othcr way.   Under certain  conditions  an  experienced   aviator   in   a   fighting   machine may shoot down an enemy  as easily as "shooting fish in a rain  barrel."    Get on a dead-level with  your antagonist and run in on him  from the rear, and it's all over in  a few   seconds.    But   if  your antagonist turns and catches yoiu in'  the rear, or endeavors to, the object  then would  be  to  go  up  oi  down, loop the loop���������������������������anything !o  get out of his way and be frtv. to  come after him again. - When you  once get in touch wilh i machine  you must stay with it until one or  the othcr is brought down. '1 bus  tar, Lieut. Glen said, hc had bcen  unusually fortunate. But it'i.s only  a question of jime when a fellow  will bc caught napping by the  other fellow.  Lieut. Glen expressed the sincere appreciation, on t behalf ol' his  brother and himself, to the people  of Enderby for the many kind  words spoken of thciji and for thc  fuller expression of (good will in  the complimentary flipper given  them.

The ladies of thc Club  desire to thank sincerely all those  who contributed to the'boxes or  assisted in any way.  Intensely " interesting   were   the  addresses" given last Sunday morn- .  ing and evening in the Presbyterian and Methodist churches "by Air.  Hatt, of Calgary, a Y.M.C.A. secretary, who told the work of the association   on   the   Flanders., tront;  how  the trying hours were made  light for thc soldiers, and how the  "Y" looked after, their material as  well ��������������������������� as    spiritual    welfare.   ��������������������������� He  spoke  as   the ^forerunner   for  thc  meeting    held    in    the    Methodist  church last evening by Capt; Pearson,  senior  Y.M.C.A. military  secretary, ��������������������������� who,  in  his-turn,  gave, a  simple story of the heroism of our  -  Canadian boys in the trenches���������������������������a  itory so replete with incidents of  iravcry and sacrilice as to make it  .  me of thc, most interesting ahd in-   .  spiring  stories   ever- told.-'   These  talks-on   the  war  are  used   as-a  stepping   stone    for.   the   greatest  campaign to raise*"funds for the Y..,  M. C. A. work at the front that has  yet been inaugurated in the'West..  There was raised in cash.at the Hlnder'-v"*-  by meeting ?232, and'an additional $872 ;.  was pledged, which," with $360 already- ���������������������������'_���������������������������  in hand makes-Enderby tota' contribu-"^ S  tion'to the "YM   approximately'^1,464'V,'.  i *  Why does Canada Raise Mpicey  by Selling Bonds?    J  BONDS are issued payable in ten or twenty years, as the case may be.  It means that repayment of the money will be spread over ten or twenty  years instead of being raised by taxation to meet current expenditures.  To raise by taxation all the money as fast as it is needed to carry on  Canada's share in winning the war, would be an unbearable burden upon  the people..  It would mean that more than a million dollars a day would have to be  raised right now.'  But to raise money by selling Canada's  Victory Bonds means that those of the  next generation who will benefit by the  sacrifices this generation is making;  ���������������������������who will share in the freedom this  generation is fighting for and largely paying  for���������������������������will also pay their share.  ��������������������������� ��������������������������� ���������������������������  And when you buy Canada's Victory  Bonds you make a first-class business investment in a security that is absolutely  safe, likely to enhance in value after the  war, and bearing a good rate of interest.  You help the country by keeping open  the British, market for Canadian products  and this helps the general welfare in which  you share.  ��������������������������� ��������������������������� *  And again, every Canadian who buys  a Victory Bond becomes a financial partner  or backer of Canada in the war.  When you buy a Canada Victory Bond  you give a personal pledge that you are  going to help to win the war.  Every man and woman in Canada can  help to win the war by buying Canada's  Victory Bonds. And Canada wants the  personal, individual interest and co-operation of every man and woman in the  country.  The buying of Victory Bonds by the  whole people unites them in a determination  to win the war.  Every purchase of. Canada's Victory  Bonds is a blow for freedom against the  tyranny of German Kultur.  Every bond sold is a new guarantee  that Canada is in the war; to the finish,  until victory is with the Allies and the  world has been made safe to live in.  Every bond you buy is a new pledge  that Canada will remain true to herself, the  Empire, the Allies and to freedom's cause.  So it is both patriotic and good business to '        ���������������������������        ���������������������������   ���������������������������  > . .*���������������������������!

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1917  MUNICIPAL-OWNED  ELECTRIC  PLANT  Al ii recent meeting of tlie Enderby Board of  Trade il v/as decided to place before lhe City  Council a rcqucsl thai the cily inquire into lhe  cosl of creeling and operating a power house lo  gene rale an electric current sullicienl for power  and lighting purposes for Enderby, and lhc adjacent farming commimily. Wilh Ihesc details  in llie possession of llie cily, an answer could  then he given on lhc question so oi'len raised as  lo why thc cily docs not own its own electric  plant. " For two years or more lhc city has been  paying a man to lake a record for thc Dominion  Government of the flow of waler in thc Brash,  creek, the source of thc cily water supply. Thc  object of getting this record for a period of three  years was" to prove the sufficiency of thc volume  before al templing to utilize it for power purposes. Tliis information will soon have been obtained. It will Ihen bc possible i'or thc cily lo say  lo lhc ratepayers exactly what volume of water  is obtainable there, and the feasibility of creeling  an electric power plant.  In taking up the mallet' of an.electric plant  Enderby would be following in Ihe footsteps of  every progressive lown in the Dominion. Few  towns would bc wilhoul a municipal owned elec-  Trie plant iTTl coulirn^fuulTor as 1 i ft le" outlay as  would bc necessary here. And in laking up lhc  question and going inlo it on a business basis,  Endcrhy would bc doing something quite as satisfactory lo the Okanagan Saw Mills, owners of"  the existing plant, as lo the city itself. Therefore  lhere need he no feeling in the mailer  Sir Adam Beck, chairman of the Hydro-Electric Commission of Ontario, in an address before  the rccenI convention of Canadian -Municipalities  told of the remarkable success which has al-  lended lhc inslilulion of electric lighting and  power plants by Ontario towns, and llie lighting  (if farming communities from central points al  cost of carrying lhe current, elc. In the dislrict  of South Oxford and Easl Elgin, he said, they  have onc hundred and fifty farmers lying between Tillsonburg. Springfield, Aylmcr and other  lowns. You might travel in lhal district for forty  miles and you will never be out of sight, al night,  <T a farm lhal has nol got an electric lamp on  llie en trance lo lhe farm. In Ontario the Hydro  commission fixes the rales, and lhcy are such as  will lake care of themselves. In Exeter, aiid Mr.  Beck gives this as an example of every municipality. Ihe average consumption is twelve and a  half horse-power. They light their streets, they  light their churches, shops, and had a surplus of  $\X. after ihe lirsl year of operation. Asked as  lo lhe average charge for current to a home, Mr.  Beck said: "I used lasl month between eight and  pine hundred kilowals. I signed a cheque today  for *!).00."  proper that each ancl every citizen of Canada  should do equal service by selective draft, and,  whereas, if ilesh and blood is conscripted, it must  be self-evident lhat wealth, which is not nearly  so vital lo the nation's life, should bc conscripted.  Therefore be it resolved that lhis convention of  the Union of Canadian Municipalities urge upon  thc Federal Government the advisability of conscripting wealth along lhc lines followed in Great  Britain al the present time."  THE ISSUE IS GRAVE  In the forthcoming election the people of Canada will be called upon to make the most fateful  decision lhat this counlry will ever be called  upon'to''make. The issue far transcends that of  mere partisanship and will be clearcut and  definite. The question to be decided will be  shall Canada remain in the war or shall Canada  quit the war. That will be the issue, that is the  issue today, pure and simple. Wc cannot escape  it.   It is upon us.  If anyone doubts (his statement, let him take  lhe records of the registration centres under the  compulsory service act. Almost in every case  lhe records show at least 90 per cent of the registrations claiming exemption under the act. In  olher words, out of every 100 single men registering, at least 90 of them are asking exemption  From" servicer In many instances the per centage  demanding exemption is higher than ninety. It  is the reverse of what was anticipated. Our men  at the head of affairs did not expect any such a  condition to arise. But it is here. Let us not  mistake ils meaning. Wc can sec no good to  :ome from blinding our eyes lo il.' It must be  Faced, whether il be whal we should wish or nol.  Some tell us lhc men opposed lo" lhc war policy  ire much in the minority. Can wc all'ord to rest  assured on this point? We do not believe so.  ihe young men called under lhc conscription  icl, come from lhc homes of Canada. They do  not represent a particular class ol* citizens who  by creed or calling are opposed lo war. They  represent the average Canadian home. Therefore, the position taken by them is indicative of  lhc spirit which dominates lhc home. Wc cannot escape it, though wc should like to.  Newspapers here and there arc finding- fault  wilh lhe young men for appealing to the exemption boards. They find fault with thc general  itlilude of thc people with regard to consenp-  lion. Bul is this justifiable? Can anything bc  gained by it? Thc people arc making their position clear. We do not for a moment think Ihey  aie opposed lo thc Government's war measures;  nor do Ihey cherish any thought of Canada's-escaping further burdens of the war. Bul lhcy arc  sounding the alarm. Not that thc young men of  Canada, or lhc homes they come from arc any  less loyal lhan'those represented in the first drall  of volunteers, but lhcy arc looking morc inlo the  Future now than" they did in the first days of thc  war. As lhis is true of Canada, it is true of the  people of every fighting country, enemy as well  as friend. The people of lhe world arc tired of  war. They arc sick of it. Il is not strange thai  Canada should share Uic feeling which is so  general thc world over. II is a position the common peoples oi' the world have been driven inlo.  by the military powers. And while all recognize  lhal it is an impossibility lo escape from the catastrophe lhe world has been brought lo, thc  common people arc beginning to realize that they  must bring their own governments back lo sanity and reason if thc best in lhe world is lo escape lolanicstrticlimv. - =~"  These are lhe final days of autocratic governments and class privilege.' Autocracy and capitalism arc hand in hand. They live or go down  together. The. issue is graver than wc think. It  is lhe prelude lo the incoming of that Democracy  of lhc common people the world has long sought.  The exemption tribunals of Canada will have  lhcir hands full. If we are lo get the required  number of- men to keep the Canadian-forccs-up-  lo lighling strength, the commissioners will have  to disallow thousands ol" exemption claims. This  cannot be avoided. Bul il would be well for our  governmcnl lo recognize the stand taken by our  Canadian homes on the conscription .measure.  Thc voice of the common people, the sane, sober  men ol" the counlry, is nol heard from the housetops as is the voice of thc politician and the war  monger, but it musl be listened lo sooner or  later!

Will Glass One Provide The
One Hundred Thousand Men ?
It will be greatly to the advantage of Canada if the entire quota of 1?0,000 men to be raised under
the Military Service Act can be secured from the first class; that is, from the men between the ages of 20
and 34 who were unmarried or widowers without children on July 6th, 1917. , ���������'.''"-
' This is almost self-evident for the following reasons: *��������� -'"''���������; S
it is admitted that, between the ages of 20 and 34, the average man is at the height of his
physical strength and is most adaptable to the change of conditions from civilian life;-.
the military service of unmarried men and widowers without children would occasion less
..distress than that of most others, since they are.largely without dependents.   Also, it would

Live Stock industry
At the stockmen's .; luncheon
given by the directors of:the
. Central'Canada '-Exhibition,; recently, the:Hbn. Martin Burrell,
then .Minister, of Agriculture,'
..seized the.opportunity, to,.in some'
measure," review., the present
state1 of the live stock and poultry industry. .After referring to
the keen- attention \ which had
been paid to; agriculture" during
the three years of theVwar, and
aknowledging. the co-operation
which had been displayed toward
increased production, Mr. Burrell
referred to the fact that there are
.now 28,QUO,000 cattle less in Europe than when the great conflict"
broke out. There, were 54,000,000
sheep less and 32,000,U00 swine
less. The depletion would assuredly continue month by month
while the war lasted. Necessarily,
then, there must be for years a
strong demand from this continent for live stock and live stock
products. In-the United States
there were 63,000,000 head of
cattle, an increase over last year;
21,000,000 horses, 48,000,000
sheep���������both much the same as
last year; 67,000,000 swine, the
last-mentioned indicating a decrease of about 300,000. A rough
approximation of the figures in
Canada would show 6,000,0o0 cattle, 3,000,000 horses, 2,000,000
sheep, and 2,500,000 swine. Here
as in the United States, swine
showed a decrease of'about 300,-
000.     r
Turning to live stock products
Mr. Burrell pointed out that in
the imports into Great Britain,
Canada stood easily first in cheese
In bacon she was third, and in
eggs she was also third. There
was a gratifying increase in the
export of live stock products, the
total value of which had reached
the sum of $109,247,000. A significant feature of this was the
egg trade. For many years Canada had exceeded exports, but in
the last two years the exports had
exceeded the imports by over six
million dozen.
"Why not take your Sunday dinner
at the King Edward?
Are We So Serious?
^While the United States doesn't
claim to have a monopoly of the
continent; s;humor, it must be admitted that-*there is something in
the chargie. that Canadians lack
this saving'grace.- The best they
seem able to do on.the other side
of paralell forty-nine is to be optimistically serious." They take
their pleasures, sadly, like the
British, and not infrequently they
entirely" miss the point of ajoke
which; tickles American ribs:.
. For example, Count Okuma, the
gentleman who suggests' "India
for the Indians"-and" who would
force Japanese upon American
become interested in a- Japanese
sugar-beet colony at Gliechen,
Alberta; He says he is backing
the enterprise "for the novelty
of the thing, and to give the Canadians an opportunity of admiring the Japanese for what they
can do." And would you believe
it, the Canucks cannot see the
joke! Instead of appreciating
this hew mine of Japanese humor;
in place of digging the pickaxe of
laughter into this Okuma vein of
fun, they attacked it with the
dynamite of wrath and in the
subsequent explosion all trace of
Oriental mirth was blown to smithereens. Count Okuma and his
friends propose to place in their
colony on the Canadian prairie a
class of farmers of a distinctively
higher-type than the usual run
of Japanese with whom this
coast is acquainted. That fact
gives, some Canadian editors the,
heart disease. ' 'It opens up an
aspect of the Asiatic question of
tenfold more importance than
the importation of coolie laborers," declares one excited writer,
while another remarks that "If
this sugar-beet experiment succeeds, as no doubt it will, and no
check is put upon its operations,
Western Canada will become
largely a Japanese colony."     '
This, coming from a people
which has established Doukhob-
ors, Galicians and other mcom-
petants in its great west, is indescribably funny, but the merry
fancy of it does not appeal  to
them. .We are sorry for Count
Okuma;. his joke, lias failed ..to
make good, "Count'jOkuma.says
for to let Canadians, to see. ih us
admiration," naively remarked
the promoiter'of the vcolony" to a
newspaperman. That is hopeless; if they cannot; admire Jad-
ahese jokes they will fail to be
impressed by other Asiatic qualifies, even if every brown man
who came to. this side of the
ocean were an Admirable Crich-
ton. ��������� Los Angeles Times."  .
Religion of the Trenches
An extract from an address by
front: "I maintain that the spiritual cry- of the trenches is this
'We would see Jesus.' The soldier's appreciation of the personality of Jesus is one.of .the great
revelations of the war.
They understand Jesus because
sacrificeis in their lot, too. This
great human atonement is being
offered by the" soldiers "at the
front not only lor those who are
worthy, but for those who are unworthy, men who think it nobler
to be a coward than a corpse.
You will be interested in knowing that I never yet heard a soldier at one of our meetings ask
for any trashy hymn. They have
no time for that. 'Lead, . Kindly
Light,' 'Fight the Good! Fight.'
'All hail the-Power.' This is the
faith of the men to whom, among
others, has been committed the
destinies of the nation at this hour
The summit of manhood has
beenreached when a'man stands
out pale, but resolute, prepared to
die. V
There was a young fellow who
had passed through two years of
fighting, untroubled, until his
chum had been shot down as they
passed over together to the
charge. Resolutely, however, he
answered me, 'But Harry's all
right. He'll carry on. It 'ud take
more than that to stop him.'
I think that's magnificent, and
I dare to say that it would take
more than that to stop your lad.
He'll carry on under better con-
ditons and in a better clime.   If
that hope is a delusion the universe is wrong.
All through life I see a crois
While sons of men yield up their breath.
There is no (tain except in Iofs;
There is no life except in d' ath.
This, as I see it, is the religion
of the trenches."
Judging from reports from
Russia tbe Slav steam roller has
gone glimmering. Just as soon as
that- battalion, of women gol into
the war game, the bottom seemed
to drop out of thc army anil the
men went home.
