Hay shipments from Enderby  district this year amount to some  200 carloads. At thirteen tons to  the car, and twenty-five or more  dollars per ton, this means some  money for our- good farmers.  It isn't any proof of ability not  to advertise. Any business is  helped by proper and effective advertising. The businessman who  docs not advertise is simply amputating his nose to get even with his  face.  Mr. C. P. Ryan, on a tour of inspection of the Bank of Montreal,  spent Tuesday and Wednesday in  Enderby. Mrs. Ryan is at Victoria  where she is slowly recovering  from the illness alllicting her when  they were residents, of Enderby.

He is  the same intense, sincere character  *  as of old, when first chosen to rep- ���������������������������,  resent    Yalc-Carriboo   in   the   Do- ^  minion,House,  but the  past  few  strenuous years of public life and  war worries have left their mark.

Premier Keren-  sky issued an interview definitely  stating that Russia was out of the  war, and was in no position to  fight longer. Hc said if thc United  "States'really wanted lo help his  war-battered people, they should  send them shoes and money. He  threw the blame upon England and  her allies for thc manner in which  Russia had to ben.- thc brunt of thc  German onslaught the first two  years of the conllict. *  In reply to this statement, Frank  H. Simonds, American military expert, says "it is a great, and enduring insult that Kercnsky has done  his allies���������������������������to those allies all of  whom were still loyal to Russia."  "Even at a time when wc must  clearly perceive how terrible for  the Allies, for us, has been the Russian, collapse," he observes, "wc  shall not give way to hitler words  or fail to recognize how much good  may flow thereafter from the  emancipation of the Russian people. Yet, since the war remains,  and v?ince all our future depends  upon a successful termination of  the struggle, it must be thc duty  of those who direct Allied policy,  who direct American policy, to  recognize that Russia has ceased to  be a factor in the war, and that all  our resources and all our efforts,  and all our aid must be concentrated in the fields and in the  countries whose soldiers are still  fighting for thc common cause."

MARTIN BURRELL  Al- the joint convention ol' Liberals and Conservatives nl Pcnliclon lasl Wednesday, thc nominalion ol* Mon. Marlin Burrcll as member ol" lhc  Dominion House for Yale was made unanimous  by lhc Conservatives'and the Liberals decided nol  to piacc a candidate in the field in opposition-  It is reasonable tp suppose, therefore, that"Hon.  Martin Burrell will continue to represent this  riding in Dominion all'airs. This choice cannot  but give satisfaction to all parties, for Mr. Burrell  has served his constituency well and also the  Dominion as Minister of Agriculture. Complaint  has been heard from a certain quarter thai Mr.  Burreil failed to administer the Department of  Agriculture as aggressively as was necessary under lhc stress of war demands. But these complaints cannol bc sustained when one compares  the work accomplished by our minister to that  of agricultural ministers who have gone before.  in the Union Government Hon. Martin Burrcll  has bcen given' the post, ol"secretary of state, a  position perhaps more suited to his nature and  ability lhan lhat of Minister of Agricullurc. And  in this capacity avc may expect to see Mr. Burrcll  "make good." He was 'incapacitated for thc  work of his department by injuries received in  TlTe^fiix' wTTicirdc^ri-oyecrilie capitol vnrorilhsVrgd7  and a prolonged rest was required lo place him  "on his feel" again. But Mr. Burrell i.s now "all  there," and we may look to his administration of  the all'airs of secretary of slate for the best interest of Canada and lhe Empire. The Liberal  leaders of the parly in this riding recognize in  Mr. Burrell lhe man lhc riding requires at this  lime, and lhcy will do all in their power to assist  -him-in-carrying on. ���������������������������-      ���������������������������  two classes���������������������������capitalists and proletariat. The  movement in England has no great leader, but  the London Times recognizes in it a national  danger when it says: "It is in fact industrial anarchism, and this is always the sequence of revolutionary agitations, the more violent forms  driving out the less in an ascending scale. British  workmen have learned during the war that they  only have to strike or threaten to strike to get  morc money. The upshot is lhat obscure revolutionaries have the Governmcnl and the nalion  by lhe throat and mean to strangle them."  Thc war has given powerful stimulus to social  unrest everywhere. This problem Avill be intensified a hundredfold when millions of soldiers return to lhcir homes and demand a place in thc  industrial life of lhcir respective nalions. For  this reason wc do not look for an early ending of  the war. Even aflcr peace negotiations arc in-  ilialcd, and lhc lighting is ended, we do not expect to sec any movement of troops homeward  on a large scale for many months following lhe  end.,. They musl bc sent home in small numbers  and assimilated by the commercial'and industrial  world. To have them appear in large numbers  would mean disaster. The situation cannot be  ignored. 11 must be met in a spirit of conciliation by both labor ancl capital. If it is not met  in such a spirit, and there is any movement on  the part of either party of an arbitrary or commanding nature, then we shall sec industrial revolution at home as sure as night follows day.  Those who can't go across can come across���������������������������  buy Victor Bonds  MUST GET TOGETHER  The safest  investment  in  the world���������������������������Victory  Bonds.  THE "MENACE"  The New York Call insists lhat ".Socialism i.s  coming inlo lhe woi Id through war." There is  noihing "lo be gained by blinding our eyes lo the  fuel, and, if properly accepted and utilized, there  is noihing lo fear from such a coming. In fact,  stale socialism is already a fact in England.Germany. France, Austria, America, in short every  ���������������������������(.���������������������������oiinlrv now engaged in war. Socialism of lhe  individual type, is in vogc in Russia, where il  stalks aboul thai land boasting what fl will do  when il comes inlo power. The world may well  shrink from lhe terrible picture presented by  Russia, bul il has noihing to fear from what we.  have loday in our own and allied nations���������������������������slate  socialism. Compared to pre-war conditions,  even stale socialism may be loo militaristic for  mosl ol" us to accept freely, but il is undoubtedly  to be the government of ihe future, and we may  as well get accustomed to il while the war is on  so wo can make lhe besl of il when peace comes.  The world must decide. Either stale socialism  or socialism of the proletariat Even in conservative England a movemenl similar to thai having  full swing in Russia is gaining headway. Its  backers follow Marx and divide all societv inlo  The interest of every home, of every community, of every slate, of every nalion, of humanity, lies in concord, not conflict All real  eminence rests on thc victories of peace, not  those of war. For this reason, men of, clear  vision in all parts of the world arc loday urging  nations and empires to get together on a common basis of fellowship and the good of all.  Politicians and government leaders in all nalions  arc opposed to any such program. Onc idea  reigns triumphant amongst them���������������������������lhc idea of  power! . Wc would not say there arc not exceptions even in the ruling class and politicians, but  these exceptions are like voices crying in the  wilderness, compared to thc prejudices and evil  inilucnccs which control public affairs. Ancl this,  loo, at such a period in the affairs of thc world!  Gold, gold, gold; this is the power���������������������������thc curse���������������������������  of/lhe age. While such a spirit prevails there is  Utile hope of lhc world getting good out of thc  crisis prevailing. And just so long as the peoples  of lhc world continue to trust blindly the policy  of secret diplomacy, which brought thc world to  lhc present eataslrophy, just so long may we expect lo sec affairs hopelessly mismanaged; just  so long may we expect lo go from bad to worse;  just so long may wc expect to bc drawn on, degree by degree, step by step,, under cover of  plausible excuses, under the cover of highly philanthropic sentiments, to irreparable disaster,  and to disgrace thai it will bc impossible to  elf ace.

The best pledge of the Dominion of Canada to pay is a Canadian Victory Bond; better than  checks or bills���������������������������as good as wheat.  A' man who was afraid of thunder crawled into a hollow log as a  place of safety during���������������������������a thunder  storm. The thunder rolled and  the rain poured down in torrents,  and the old log began to swell up  till the poor fellow was wedged  in so tight that he could not get  out. All his past sins began passing before him. Suddenly he remembered he hadn't paid his  newspaper subscription,' and he  felt so small that he was able to  back right out. ;__  Election Time Loyalty  Election time was drawing  near and an enthusiastic politi- /  cian was addressing his constituents ih a frenzied speech. Not  a few of his assertions, .reduced  to cold thought were diametrically opposed to one another, but  each'proposal was received with  applause. t A judge turned to his  companion and said: "This reminds me of the Irish leader who  was cheering his men on to battle. 'Min,' said he, 'ye are on .  the verge of battle. I want to ask  ye before ye start, will yez fight  or will . yez run?' 'We will,'  came a chorus of  eager replies.  ". 'Which will yez do?' says he.

E;F., received, by - the military  authorities, the following information is published in order to explain the methods, which in the  interests of" fair and equitable  treatment of all soldiers, are followed in each case.  "1.- In the homes' bf soldiers  who are -absent, there occur  what might be termed the inevitable tragedies of life, in the  serious or fatal illness of niem-  "b^rs'of their=familiesv^In���������������������������these  circumstances the quite natural  desire arises on the part of v the  relatives to have the soldiers return home, and numerous requests are made to'this effect.  Such cases form the major portion of those coming under this  heading.  - 2. While these cases are very  distressing, they are, unfortunately, the unavoidable incidents of  war, and it is obviously impossible, where so many men are concerned, fcracceed to any of these  requests except in cases of the  most extreme urgency.  3. Further, owing to the critical stage which the war has now  reached, and under present conditions, it has been found impossible to grant furlough to return  to Canada for the reason only,  that one of his relatives is seriously ill or has died. Only in extremely urgent cases can applications be considered, where, for  instance, business complications  in connection with an estate, or  arrangements for the care and  maintenance of the remaining  members of the family require a  soldier's personal attention.  4. In such cases, application  should be submitted to the Assistant Adjutant General, Military  District No. 11, Victoria, B.C.,  who will cause the same to be investigated and forwarded with  the recommendation of the officer commanding district, to militia headquarters at Otta'va.  : Thejapplication-: should be accompanied in each instance by  definite information, and satisfactory evidence of ] the facts  stated, endorsed by one or more  responsible . persons, who can  vouch forthe facts.  . 6. The fact of a soldier being  wounded or. sick in hospital in  either England or France, is not  a sufficient reason for making a  request for his return to Canada.  The man in every case is receiv-.  ing the' best and most efficient  medical care and nursing, and  not until he is fully recovered  and rested. will he be'returned  for duty. Oh the ' other hand,  should his case be such as to permanently incapacitate him from  active service, he will, in the or-  dinarywaybe'returned^to^Cari^  ada at the earliest possible moment for disposal    -  6. . Relatives and friends of  men'at.the front are therefore  requested to carefully consider  each Individual case in view of  these requirements, and only to  submit applications in urgent  cases of absolute necessity, such  as above outlined.  An American Tribute  No troops have gained more  honor, or won more glory on the  field of battle, than have the  troops from Canada. In no action  in which they have taken part  have they failed to distinguish  themselves by singular valor.  The healthy climate is in a measure responsible for their wonderful snowing, but there is another reason why Canadians have  excelled. The first Canadians to  take up arms for the Mother  Country were hailed as heroes  by their British cousins. England  realized that men from a country  not directly menaced by the war  must be animated by the highest  motives of loyalty and patriotism  to risk their lives for the right.  England's estimate of Canadian  worth proved just. In the first  terrible days of the German rush,  as soon as Canadians appeared in  the trenches they won honors of  war. The Canadians who followed  were in duty'bound to live up to  the high standards set by their  forerunners and .in this they, did  nobly. What has been said.of the  Canadians must also, be true of  Americans. The first- Americans  who fought tht enemy have set  .a-high standard for our troops  to. follow. Not only have; we the  American ideals of former wars  to guide us, but we have the personal exploits of our own men" in  this greatest of all wars. Territorial neighbors of Canada, it should  not be long before we are her  neighbors in the field of American glory. ���������������������������St.Louis Star.  'Good as the Wheat'  "Good as the wheat" is an old  motto, about as much the last  -word.in-meaning^asJJSafe.as^the.  bank of England." When we say  "good as the wheat" we refer to  the bushel of brown, hard kernels  worth by Govarnment fixture  this year, $2,20. In the memory  of living man when did "good as  the wheat" mean more than it  does now? Never. A bag of  wheat weighing two bushels and  a peck tots up in 1917 to just  about the value of a five-dollar  gold piece. But of course no man  wants gold for his wheat. All he  gets is a check made out in his  favor on some bank and signed  by- the manager of some elevator  or milling concern. The check is  converted into bills or goes on deposit. Good wheat; good paper:  nobody asks any questions. Because the company is 0. K. If any  wheat-seller had^any doubt of it  he would at once' demand something else.  "I sold good wheat," he would  say. ' 'I want something as good  in exchange."  What made the wheat good?  The good farmer behind it. A  poor farmer can make poor wheat  out of good seed. What makes  the paper money good? The security of the corporation whose  name it bears. The sounder the  corporation, the paper comes to  being as good as the wheat. But  even a big company may go  broke:"  Back of the corporation is a concern whose guarantee on a piece  of paper is better than either.

C.        -  Chinese Wine Returned  Sambo gets his "win" back. To  get a conviction before a magistrate who knows the law and is  determined to give every man n  fair hearing, requires that there be  evidence placed before the court  which demends a conviction. The  police magistrate in Vancouver hit  the nail on thc head a few days  ago when he remarked that some  people were carried away wiith  the idea that the duty of a magistrate is to assist the prosecution to  get a conviction, whereas thc real  duty of a magistrate is to hear evidence and sec that accused persons arc dealt with justly by the  state. In the Chinese case closed  this week before Magistrate Rosoman, the evidence produced by  the prosecution showed clearly  serious faults in 'the manner the  seizure of the "win" was made.  The case was dismissed and the  "rheumatise med'ein" ordered returned to Old Sambo.

Sir Wilfrid does  not make any alteration in the  stand taken by him some months  ago on thc conscription issue. At  that time he refused 'to enter the  proposed Union government on���������������������������the  ground that he was opposed to  conscription being forced upon the  country before it was submitted to  thc people. He still holds to this  opinion, and offers .to go to the  country on this issue. He urges  his followers to put a candidate in  thc field in each constituency.  Forty-two Cents for Butter Fat  Attention is-drawn to thc notice  of the Northern Okanagan Creamery Association in this issue of the  Press.

The  price guaranteed fo,r November is  42c, which ought to induce cream  producers in the vicinity, of Enderby to patronize the local creamery.  All creamery. cheques are made  pavable at par in Enderby, and a  settlement is made each month for  all cream received.    -  ESTABLISHED 100 YEARS (1817'  Capit.l Paid up       -       $16,000,000  Rett      ��������������������������� "."'-"  -    - 16,000,000  Total Asiets (April 1917) 386,806,887  Dominion Government  War Savings Certificates can  and should be purchased by  everyone who can accumulate from $21.50 upward  in a Savings Account in the  Bank of Montreal.
