Strickland and son  returned from a visit to thc Slocan  this week.  A. E. Johnston is spending a few  days in Enderby this week  from  .Vancouver on business.  "Southern Justice," a very pretty  photo-play, was shown at the  Opera House Tuesday'evening.  Considerable gravelling is being  done on the trunk road by the  Provincial Government where the  roads are most in need of it.  Everybody likes to see "Ole 01;  son," and a good house*, is almost  certain to be present at the performance advertised for Saturday  night.        .  Thos. W. Cameron, of Lanarck,  Ont., who has been visiting his  brother,, B. J., and family sSomc  weeks, leaves Enderby for the  coast this -week.  A-social dance was given in K.  of P. Hall last Friday evening to  Lieut. James Glen, who is visiting  his mother on a furlough from the  Hying,line, France.     .<""-  .   When we have pushed the white  man out of the hotel- business we  shall-have made room for..Chinese  hotelmen," just, as we have  made  room for foreigners in our~mines.  Mr. arid Mrs. R. J. Coltart intend  'to leave this week on a visit to the  old home -in .^Ontario, where they  wijl .spend the early winter, returning to Enderby! about - January 1st.  ... MV. Hatt; one. of  the Y; M. C. A.  : secretaries will:speak in the.-Pres-^  byterian   ' Church    "next  .:Sunday  morning-at 11-o'clock and in! the  Methodist ���������������������������Church in the evening at  .7.30.    r"u-   ;"   V ~-/;v ^ f / >.'���������������������������-  A   Conservative I convention   for  naming a-candidate rf or the'Doming  ion'house, will pfoba6lya be! field the  1 last of October or early.",in November. -It now seems quite .likely; that  the .Liberals and Conservatives.will  agree upon a man and thus avoid a  contest.   .,-*.-.-.-        .v ,  Finer fall weahter could not be  desired than that which has prevailed in the Okanagan this season.  There can be no ' excuse for fall  farm work not' being' done this  year, and the man who has taken  advantage of weather conditions is  certain to profit by it. -     "  Inspitc of its, pronounced appeal  to deepest villainy, "The Voice on  the Wire" has a saving human  touch that holds an'audience and  ^keeps^interest^tolthe_highest=,pitch.  This is evident frorii the enthusiastic reception given the film each  Friday night at the Opera House.  Capt. Pearson, for two years  senior, military Y.M.C.A. secretary  in France, will speak in the Meth-  ohist church on Wednesday evening, Oct. 31st, at 8 o'clock. Don't  miss this opportunity of hearing  Capt. Pearson's thrilling story of  Canadian military life in France.  Ghas. E. Strickland added a valuable registered Holstein bull to his  dairy herd a few days ago, having  purchased onc of thc prize young  animals from' the Tolmie herd, of  Ed. Harrop. The mother of the  bull has a record of 112 pounds of  milk in 24 hours, and 25,000 lbs. of  milk in a year,/with' nearly 900 lbs.  of butterfat.  J. C. Dever, assistant district engineer, was in Enderby Saturday  last looking into the needs of the  roads in this section. He visited  the Mabel Lake vailley in connec-  'tion with the many complaiats  which have been 'registered about  the need of repairs to the bridges,  and it is understood he will at once  have the repairs m,ade. Mr. Dever  says the great trouble now is in  getting the men to do the work required on the roads.  The Press is substituting a type  heading for the standard newspaper head 'this week. Tliis has  been made necessary to handle the  Victory Loan advertisement on the  first page. The Government has requested as a special favor that the  display ads for the Victory Loan  appear on the first page, and all  Canadian newspapers are doing  their utmost to meet thc request  and make the Victory Loan a success in all particulars.  CONCERT A GREAT SUCCESS  Thc old time concert given in  thc Presbyterian Church Monday  evening proved a great success, not  only as an evening's entertainment but also from a financial view  point. Thc numbers given by each  and "all taking part were heartily  received and thc audience showed  its appreciation by 'the responsive  hearing givcu to all and the hearty  enchorcs.

Neither Canada nor Great Britain  could go to a Canadian farmer and buy  his wheat or his cattle on credit.

THURSDAY, OC, OBER 25, 1917  CLOSING A WORTHY INSTITUTION  It is with sincere regret that wc have to announce that the King Edward Hotel will close its  doors thc end ol* this month. This is thc decision  arrived at by Mr. Murphy alter onc month's trial  of tlie bone-dry law. lhere is not a better known  or morc popular hotel man in the Province than  Mr. P. 11. Murphy and his brother "Jim" who has  had a direct hand on tlie management of the  hotel, i'or several ycars. Thc King Edward has  been thc pride oi' Endcrhy for many ycars, thc  hotel having established a reputation unsurpassed in thc Interior. Mr. Murphy says the hotel  has run behind every day Tor the past month,  and hc feels that it is too much to expect a man  lo keep thc house open: to supply a public need  at a private loss.  , It is extremely unfortunate that Enderby is so  situated as to bc unable to give the patronage required to keep thc King Edward Hotel open to  the travelling public. It will surely mean.a great  loss to the town and district, for the King Edward has been thc only place in the town where  thc door was ever open and a home provided for  the travel-weary. Wc understand that in some  of the Prairie towns where hotels were forced to  close their doors, the provincial government had  to come lo their assistance with a monthly bonus  in order to provide the necessary accommodation  for the travelling public. There seems to bc no  reason for not adopting this measure in British  Columbia. Nol in every case of a hotel having  to close its doors, but only in thc case of the  single hotel in a community having to hc kept  open as a public requirement. Our governments  build railroads and hand them over to private  "individuals to""operate for private gain, and give  bonuses of sundry and great amounts, and they  are lauded for doing so. Why not bonus the  hotels where needed, and thus help out in some  degree the men upon whom the new law operates so unjustly?  STATE  SOCIALISM  It isJno sinecure to be a minister of the Crown.  In these trying times, the man who attempts to  work on the people, with the people, and for the  people through any department of state, must  stand the severe test of criticism, and must make  good inspitc of the people, not with the people's  aid. Just now Food Controller Hanna is coming  in for much abuse because of his ell'orts to'control the production and prices of food and fuel.  That Food Controller Hanna lias succeeded in  some degree all must admit. That there is much  yet to do no one will attempt to deny. It takes  time to bring about the revolution which must  come in our eating and saving habits. Thc people on lhcir part arc prepared to do their part in'  practicing economy; they would readily fall into  the rye-bread, brown-bread or corn-bread line in  order to save the white Hour. But they do not  see the need of doing so, and will not do so,  while thc prices of rye flour, whole-wheat flour  and corn meal are permitted to soar to higher  heights than while flour has reached.  The other day we overheard a housewife discussing the food proposition after asking a merchant the price of these commodities. "They  tell us to save white bread flour by eating rye  bread, brown bread, and corn bread," she said,  "Yet when wc go to buy these flours we find the  prices have jumped to a point higher than that  of white bread flour. And these substitutes are  not so good as white bread flour. It is all well  enough to appeal to our patriotism to have us do  these things, but we cannot be expected to pay a  higher price for an inferior flour when while  flour is more plentiful and at a less price. If they  want us to eat more inferior bread flour and  save the white flour, they will have to give us thc  inferior flour a I tlie inferior-flour price."  PAYING THE PRICE  Sincere men and women prohibitionists have  declared that they will die fighting thc liquor  traffic. And they believe a great victory has been  won in thc enactment of the liquor laws which  are in vogue in Canada and some of thc states to  the* south of us. They forget that wine and  women have gone together- since before Christ's  lime, and will probably continue a long time  after, our puny bodies are laid away and forgotten. What the prohibition law,has really done is  not to prohibit liquor drinking, but it has  simply done away with the license system. And  in discontinuing the license system we have only  stopped public drinking. AVpiinstcr is credited  with saying that he considered: the new law the  finest thing that ever happened: now one can  walk into a house almost anywhere along thc  road and get a drink, whereas under the old law  onc had to wait until hc got to town. There is  no little truth in this sly remark. This, however,  is not the point we wish to make. In doing away  with Uic public bar wc have lost control of this  root of evil Avithout killing il. This, ^ye understand, is rather an unpopular subject just now.  Sort of a post mortem, as it were. All men arc  prohibitionists today.' Prohibition outside the  house,, but with plenty in the cellar. Not all are.  But'those loudest in their praise of the new law  are the'.most ready to take advantage of its operation." And, while they gloat over the tremendous accomplishment in its passage they ignore  the blow dealt the communities affected. They  sec only the outward appearance of victory: the  s u p p ressio n=ofVone=ha 1 L,the=coiimiimiLy=J3y=J hc_  predominance of the other half���������������������������the man who  never frequented thc hotels of the province and  lias no need of a hotel home, legislating for the  man who did frequent the hotels and knew the  requirements of a hotel home;    *  CANADA LEADS  These are days when there should bc no more  of tlie ostrich* policy of attempting to escape the  I ruth by blinding our eyes to it. Surely we have  suffered enough from it and have lost morc than  enough through it. Canada has done wonders  in coping with the changed conditions of war  lime. In many respects Canada has outstripped  even some of the larger and farther developed  nalions. I3ul Canada has yet much to learn in  llie policy of slate socialism she has set out upon.  We call il National Service���������������������������lhe individual for  lhe nalion���������������������������voluntarily or by compulsion. And  lhe object is lo make all private interests subservient lo the interests of the nalion. It is the  essence of Socialism, but, under the name of  National Service wc do not recognize it as such.  Socialists as well as others, complain about lhe  inconsistency of National Service under our professed Democracy. Yet does not Socialism, followed lo a logical conclusion, lead directly to  the state���������������������������for all?  "Sell vour hammer and buv a horn."  ""The efforts of the Canadian Government  through the Military Hospitals Commission on  behalf of the returned soldiers is receiving recognition in olher countries. For instance, iir the  house of representatives al Washington the Hon.  Simeon D. Fees, in the course of a speech on the  Soldier's Insurance Bill urged that thc United  Slates should adopt methods of re-education for  their returned soldiers similar to those which  have been so successfully employed in Canada.  In describing at some length what has been done  in Canada he said, "As is well known, Canada  has accomplished more in the field of re-education of the mutilated soldier than any other  countrv."  Another zep raid was carried out on Friday  night on London and outlying districts, and the  London News is quoted as saying: "Another of  our fond war delusions���������������������������due, wc suppose to thc  phlegmatic perversity of our national character  ���������������������������was shattered. Statements from authoritative  quarters made at Various times had led iis to  believe the airship menace had bcen mastered.  How far this is from being thc case is shown by  the ollicial report. It may be pointed out that the  moon���������������������������a feeble one���������������������������set at eigth minutes past  seven.

There are over 1,250 boards throughout the country, each composed of two  men, one appointed by the county judge in the district concerned and one selected by a joint committee of  Parliament.   Being familiar with local conditions where they sit, the members are well-fitted to appreciate '  such reasons for exemption as are put before them by men called up.  _ Exemption will be granted to those who can establish that it is in the national interest that they remain 9  in civilian life.   This is for the Exemption Board to decide after having received full information in each case.  The grounds on which exemption may be claimed- (which are similar to the grounds recognized in  Great Britain and the United States) are as follows:���������������������������  (a) That it is expedient in the national Interact that the man should, instead of being employed in Military Service.be  engaged in other work in which ha is habitually engaged.  (b) ' T.hat it is expedient in ������������������he national interest that the' man should, instead of being employed in MiIitaryService.be  engaged in other work in which ha wishes to be engaged and far which he has special qualifications.  . (e)   That it is expedient in the national interest that, instead of being employed in Military Service, he should continue  to be educated or trained for any work for which he is then being educated and trained.  (<0   That aerious hardship would ensue if the man were placed on active service, owing to hit exceptional financial or  business obligations or domestic position.- ****". "������������������������������������������������������--.  (e)   III health or infirmity.    '  Af). That he conscientiously object* to the undertaking of combatant service and is prohibited from doing so by tenets  ' and articles o'f faith, in effect on the sixth day of July, 1017, of- any organized religious denomination existing and  well recognized in Canada at such date, and to which he in good faith belohgs. ���������������������������  (g)  That he should be exempt because disfranchised under the War Time Election Act.  . -,' No Claim for Exemption should be put forward unless one or other of these grounds in fact exists,  and no loyal citizen should assist iri, or allow himself to be made a party to, any Claim for Exemption unless  thoroughly satisfied that it is.made in good faith.  Exemption may be - applied for By the men selected themselves or by their parents, near relatives or  employers. Application-for-exemption must be made oh printed forms to be found at every post office,  yrhich are to be filled in and left with the' postmaster if exemption is desired. The postmaster will forward  the form to a Registrar,; who will send it to the appropriate Exemption Board. In due time, then, the  Applicant will get notice as to when he must present his case before the Board. ;   / *  Issued by The Military Service Council "  138  It is ab.oIi.tely essential in tlij  interests of the counlry that llie  Fourth Domestic War Loan to be  floated in November by the Dominion Government, should be a complete success. The loan i.s required  not only to finance Canada's further participation in thc war, but  also to finance the purchase of  food and other' war supplies in  Canada by Great Britain ancl her  Allies. Unless the Canadian Government is in a position to arrange  credits in Canada for these war  purchases, dispatches tell us, they  will have to be made in othcr  countries in which such credits  can be arranged. The failure or  merely partial success of tliis Dominion war loan would have a  very serious effect upon thc agricultural and industrial prosperity  of thc country.  And he gave it for his opinion  that whoever CQuld make two ears  of corn, or"two blades of grass, to  grow upon a spot of ground where  only one" grew before, would, deserve better of mankind, and clo  more essential service to his country than thc whole race of politicians  put  together.���������������������������Swill.

A "CONTROLLED" PRESS  Canada has numerous "controlled" newspapers���������������������������by "big interests," by department stores, and  by corporations. We all know this,  wink at it, sometimes defend it,  and wish wc owned the newspaper. Yet, when it' comes to Germany, we are enraged at the  thought of a "controlled" newspaper. ,  Editors who are not controlled,  or muzzled, or bought can render  Canada a~ service of tremendous  and lasting value by arousing the  people to; a knowledge of how  things stand in Canada; and they  have right now a good time to begin, for there is abroad everywhere a "house-cleaning" spirit  and purpose. Party politics, profiteering,' corruption, and malignant selfishness are becomi g  odorous. Would .. that we could  make them odious, as well. Our  chests swell, our eyes gleam, our  brow is noWc, when we talk and  think and declaim about the Canada that is to be; but how can we  have a Utopian Canada with con-  CONCISELY STATED  It is stated in an Ottawa dispatch  that Hon. Martin Burrell, now secretary of state in the Unionist cabinet, will come west to manage the  nomination of candidates to run  on the. Borden-Unionist ticket. In  a recent letter Mr. Burrell concisely stated the position of the Government on the question of the  =disfranchisem\mtwof~"Canadians~"of  alien birth. "There is a good deal  of criticism in the House," said hc,  "on thc disfranchisement clause'.,  but it seems clear to us that men  who have been born in enemy  countries and had not been naturalized here for, more than a comparatively few years should not be  allowed- lo vote during���������������������������the -war.  Such men would naturally have  sympathies with thc jand of their  birth and their own kith and kin,  and onc cannot criticise them for  that. At the same time such people  would not bc open to enlistment  tuid therefore as they cannot perform the highest duty to the state,  viz���������������������������defending its prin^iplels on  the battlefield, it is right that they  should not exercise fhe privilege  of saying how the State shall bc  governed during the time that we  are at war with the countries from  which they-come."  OUTLOOK  NOT FAVORABLE  From all registration centres under the Military Service Act come  reports of satisfactory registration,  but inordinate applications for exemption. Quebec presents the  most glaring instance of. this sort,  where 200 registered and without  exception, all asked for exemption.  At Brantford, Ont., out of 119 registering, all but three asked exemption. According to figures published a few days'ago from all the  registration centres, out of 8,109  registering, 7,039 asked exemption.  WHO 'S TO BLAME?  .Printer ancl Publisher, one of the  trade publications of the Maclean  Publishing Company, of Toronto,  with an eye on trade conditions  .throughout Canada, says in thc  October number: "Thc Eaton advertising is getting inlo daily and  weekly newspapers that aforetime  declined to insert this advertising,  and in some cases fhe publishers  frankly state, in their own columns  that the reason is that local merchants will not support the local  newspaper adequately. The publisher is often in a most trying position; he wants to bc loyal to his  [own community, and yet he must  make both ends meet. If local mcr-  "chants^wilhnohgive^himHhe^neces-  sary encouragement, by the purchase of his white space, to remain  loyaj to his ow;i community, then  the publishc may have, for self-  protection, to accept the advertising of the big mail-order houses.  "One thing should be very clear  to both publishers and local \ner-  ch'ants, Jiamcly,. the :morc���������������������������a_com-  munity shops with mail-order  houses, the poorer the community  must become as a trading territory.  The salvation of a counlry weekly  or a small city daily is a great volume of local trading, with its accompaniment of local newspaper  advertising; and a good local and  tributary population.

C, October 25, 1917  ta������������������t'  DON'T MISS THE POINT  There is a man in this part of  the world "who represents a pretty  good average -of ��������������������������� human nature.  Whenever the preacher .in his  church delivers a very hot sermon  against some special kind of sin,  this man gets enthusiastic and goes  around to the vestry to tell the  preacher what a, fine sermon it  was. Then he goes home and repeats it to his brother, andjthey  talk over the points and ;th# people the sermon hit the hardest. But  : this particular man never \see>  when the. sermon hits Aim.  Early in November the biggest  public campaign ever put,von in  Canada will be opened to get; subscriptions for the fourth Canadian  war loan, the Victory Loan.? The  thing our people must bear in niind  is f that the appeals are directed to  each and every one of them. It  is not merely the well-off men .and  women who are being asked to invest. It is everybody. The little  sermons which will be "preached"  in the advertising should not be  taken as hints to the well-to-do  people only. Every man and woman should watch for these advertisements and start now to gather  up the necessary money to buy  either a fifty or a hundred or a five  hundred or a thousand dollar bond.  In the United States there were  about four subscribers 'to the first  American loan out of every 100  persons. They only received 3%  per cent. In Canada for the last  war loan there were only about 41,-  000 subscribers, or say 4 in every  700. Yet in Canada the interest  was much higher���������������������������on the Victory  Bonds that will probably be issued  to yield about 5%.  The first thing anyone should do  ���������������������������in our opinion���������������������������is 'to get rid of  the idea that there is any sacrifice  involved in investing in this loan.  While it is true that the patriotic  spirit is appealed to and it is  equally true that a great and generous response is expected on that  ground, it should not be forgotten  that the new war loan is a straightaway business proposition: safe,  profitable and convenient.. Every  man and every woman with as  much as fifty dollars to spare  should own one of these bonds,  and not only that, but should help  to show others the worth of these  bonds by recommending them  everywhere. The readers of-the  Press are among the most thrifty,  prosperous and public spirited, in  Canada. Many of them have contributed liberally to earlier war  loans, and we feel sure when the  subscriptions to the; Victory Loan  are added up from the various dis-  tricts-and-^sub-districts-they���������������������������will-  show that this part of the Dominion has been true to its traditions  arid just to its opportunities.  GOING TO TEXAS  Within a few weeks Canada's big  aviation camp at Deseronto wijl  have been moved to Texas for*the.  winter. Since the beginning of  October, drafts of trained men���������������������������  both pilots and mechanics���������������������������have  been embarking from Toronto  headquarters bound for Texas.  With one of these drafts Pte. J. N.  Grant, of Enderby, has already  been sent south. It is said that it  will not be long before a miniature  Canada will be situated not far  from Fort Worth, where the work  of grouping suitable buildings and  aerodromes for "the Dominion's  army of airmen has been proceeding for some weeks.

THANKS FOR PARCEL  The ladies of the Trench Comfort Club are in receipt of the following letter from Ptes. Gordon  Duncan, Fred Johnson, Leslie  Mackay: Wc join in sending our  thanks to you for the parcels we  received from you a few days ago.  They were all in fine condition and  the contents most acceptable.  Thanking you once again and wishing your club loads of success in  'the future."  Where Did He Get the Idea?

The printer saw before him  Old patrons by the score;  An easy chair and fan he grabbed,  And asked for nothing morc.  Hc sat and sat and watched them,  Saw them sizzle, scorch and burn;  And his former debtors saw him  Whichever way he'd turn.  Said the angel: "Come up higher,  And the pearly gates we'll see.
