Pacey Killed  Mrs. J. F. Pacey received oflicial  word this week that her husband  had - been killed in action. Pte.  Pacey was a soldier of the right  type.- He had favored the Press  with several letters from lhe front  whither he went with an- early  contingent. He had been in the  trenches many months, and yet, he  never had a word bf complaint to  offer. It will be remembered that  in his last letter in the Press, a  week or two ago, he mentioned the  fact that his battalion was in the  thick of the hard fighting, and that  few* if any prisoners were being  taken by the Canadians. Mrs.  Pacey has the deep^sympathy and  respect of - the community. She  has heroically borne the trials of  a mother and soldier's wife, left  alone with her little children lo  care for and the home to keep in  order.

Bischel, wholesale lumber  dealer of Calgary, arrived in Enderby this week.  Save wheat, meat and sugar; eat  potatoes, spuds and murphies and  help win the war.  Mrs. Hall, of Deep Creek, was  taken to the Kamloops hospital  last week to be operated upon.  Pte. J. M. Jamieson, reported  missing last week, is officially reported killed in action this week.  The name of Corpl. G. H. Winter  of Armstrong, appeared" on the  casualty list of killed in action, a  few days ago.  Louis Simard returned from the  Vernon hospital last Thursday,  where he underwent an operation  for appendicitis.  Several ambitious curlers are  getting anxious to get to work on  making ice. They want to curl  before New Years.  Don't miss the minstrels tonight  if you" wish to 'enjoy a" hearty  laugh and at the same time help  out on'the soldier's comforts.

Next  Saturday    evening   June    Caprice  will   star  in  "Little  Miss   Happiness,"  another Fox  special,  in  a  most cheerful vein.   It will be accompanied by the comedy, "House  of Terrible Scandals."  Chas. Oppertshauser, who has  had in hand the petition to be presented to the City Council asking  that body to look into the cost of  erecting a power house and installing an electric plant for power  and light, has secured some ninety  names of property owners and  -householders, and Jit is. understood  the petition will be presented af  the next meeting of the council.  No part of the north end of the  Valley  is  showing more  development than the Mara district.   And  it means work and lots of it, with  plenty  of   powder,   to   get  those  monster   cedar   stumps   out.     But  there is no better land out of doors  when it is once cleared.   It would  not be surprising lo see thc output  of   field   produccv from   Mara   increase ten to twenty fold within a  year or two.  W. J. Woods returned from Alberta  this  week,  where  he  spent  the   harvest    season    on   his   big  wheat ranch.    Mr. Woods reports  business very brisk in the Alberla  country,   with    money     plentiful  ancl  large  crops.    He  intends  to  sell  his  live  stock  on  his  ranchj  near Enderby this winter and get'life "than at this very moment,' " and in trcn-  chant sentences the lecturer hayed that heartless thing, that trades on the weaknesses and  follies of the people, the helplessness of the poor  and the sorrows of thc nation' for selfish reasons and ends. It was that, he said, upon which  Jesus   the   Christ   had    pronounced   withering  Mowat, who has returned from the  fronl bearing the scars of severe  wounds received in "action on the  Flanders lighting line. Pte. Mowat  is home for a fortnight only, when  Ire will return to the military hospital at Vancouver. The reception  given him by the people bf Enderby was .characteristic of the  warm hearted feeling of the people for "Joe," who grew into manhood in Enderby and- has always  been recognized*as "our Joe."    It  They soon succeeded in uncovering him, but too late to save his  life. Dr. Keith was immediately  summoned. He decided an inquest  was unnecessary.  Minstrel Show To-night  The big minstrel show organized in our sister town, Armstrong  for the benefit of thc Red Cross  and Home Comfort "Club, and  which was such a grand" success,  both artistically^ and financially,  when given there a week or ten  was a simple evening of games,,days ago, will be repeated tonight  conversation,    music,    etc.,    \yith,in the Enderby  Opera  House  for  lhe benefit of the Red Cross and  refreshments and a dance to close  the event. The feature of the evening was several selections by thc  Bohemian, orchestra of three instruments, who rendered music  such as might .be heard in the  gloaming oh the battle fronts of  Central Europe. Mr. Harkins also  favored, with ��������������������������� clarionet ''solos and  Mr.Winter with his ever enjoyable  comic songs. Mrs. F.

S. A. Shatford, G. A. Henderson,   J.    W.    Hayward,   F.   E.  Reinerf,   F.   Cooper,  A.   W.   Giles,  Hugh A." Heggie, L. Norris, W. F.  Kennedy, "Geo.   H.   Dobie,   A.   Mc-  Anley, C. F. Costerton, F. B. Cossitt, Arthur Cochrane, Louis Ball,  R. N. Clerk, Geo. Adams, and C  L.  Lowe.    Upon these gentlemen will  rest the   responsibility   of making  up any shortage in the house receipts up to lhat amount. ^And anything   over   that   amount, will   be  turned over to the Red Cross" and   '  other patriotic funds.   Their only  purpose in bringing- the Chautauqua artists to-Vernon is lo "encourage the better" class" of entertainments to come this way.   An effort   -  was also made by these gentlemen , '  to get a' special train- to run from  Sicamous  to Vernon  on  the .first  Chautauqua    night, in - order    to     ;  make it possible for all desiring to-  attend   to   take   advantage   of  the  rare opportunity. They went so far  as to get.rates, etc., from the railway, company, and are leaving it  up to the people of Enderbyr-and '"'  Armstrong to  guarantee the--$150.r_,  required, for   the "special- to, and  from Vernon.

Collin admits a fondness  for registered Jerseys. He has always had the best herd of Jerseys  in the district up to the time of  his recent sale. He is now starting to breed up another herd. He  saved from his old stock the best  heifers, and this week he made  the purchase of "Jack of the Pine  Grove," a registered Jersey bull,  sired by "Tyee Champion," who  was sired by the king of Jerseys,  "Buttercup Royal Lad."  Fatal Runaway  A fatal accident occurred on the  road to Salmon Arm last Friday.  For some weeks Jack Garvin  lingered between life and death in  the Salmon Arm Hospital, and his  aged mother and father came out  from Eastern Canada to see him.  fully, and then set to work and religiously do the  opposite. A few ycars ago we were encouraged  to plant fruit trees by the government; then, just  when the trees should have begun lo pay us for  the years of labor put on Ihem, we were told to  get into stock and mixed farming. This wc have  been trying lo do, with sonic success. Then came  the call for more production, and the greatly increased prices makes the cost of feed too high to  put it into farm stock, with the result that we  are forced to kill the stock to save the cost of  feeding. I can name at least a'dozen farmers of  curses and doom, 'Woe, iintj you, Scribes and: my acquaintance who. arc this Winter killing  Pharisees.'

Past efforts of patriotic societies to collect old papers, rags, etc., have resulted in a loss to everybody but  thc coast dealers and the railway  company, lt is Mr. Saudcr's intention to make Vernon thc central  collecting point, he, in turn, shipping by thc carload. Thus he expects to make it worth while for  any patriotic society or organization to make the collection in the  several towns of the Valley.  but judgment and fiery indignationV "We shall  never have a democracy worlh saving until we  cut through all these pretensions of government  of the people, for the people, by the people," he  said. Years ago Lord Grey had warned a Toronto audience that this phrase; might be interpreted to mean "government of the people, by  the rascals, for the rich."  Having given this piece of sound, solid political philosophy, Dr. Macdonald turned his attention to some reasons why democracy will never  be made safe in the world. First, he said, lhe  world will never be made safe for democracy  to carry Ihem through until spring. Do you see  what this means? We are killing and selling our  farm stock this year because there is more  money in selling hay al prevailing prices than  in feeding it. In another year or two our hay  will go begging for a market because wc will not  have the stock to Iced il to."  This farmer very tritely remarked that better  results might be had if our agricultural departments would talk less on paper, telling the farmer what to do, and do more in the direction of  systematizing agricultural production and marketing.

THURSDAY,  DECEMBER 6, 1917  A GREAT VICTORY VICTORY  Canada, and particularly our own locality and  Province, won' a greal victory in floating thai  $150,000,000 of Victory Bonds. The $150,000,000  was stretched to $350^000,000 or $400,000,000���������������������������  ancl it was all done quietly in two weeks' time,  it was a victory for the people; for the Governmcnl; .for the newspapers, and i'or the committees organized throughout thc Dominion for.  thc Victory Bond drive. Thc amount sel for  Endcrhy district lo raise was $25,000. This  amount was  overrun  just  $15,000. When  tlie campaign opened in this district thc doubt  was expressed of the $10,000 mark being reached  and $15,000. was considered thc outside limit.  Which   goes    to   prove    lhal   money   is   like  goid-  -jList  where  you find  it.  WITHOUT HONOR  Arc nations responsible for the actions of their  diplomats? Do thc leaders of governments  know, and do they sanction, the dishonorable  secret compacts entered into by their diplomats  before tlie said compacts arc regularly signed  up and delivered? Do the leaders of'the European nations dictate the underhanded . secret  ���������������������������li:en.tios-enlei:edJnlo-by-thciii-dJ.plnma1s? Or arc  these secret treaties permitted to bc made by a  certain privileged class of the diplomatic school  without the knowledge of their governments in  order to make il possible for lhe leaders to appear before Iheir people and lhc world with  pious faces and lofty aims, and at the same  lime having lhe nation involved by secret compact in a written undertaking not any belter  lhan a compact between thieves?  These arcV|Tieslionswhich are TmdoTiblcdly  being asked al lhe Paris conference of the Allied  leaders now heing held. And Ihesc are questions  which the people of England are asking themselves just now, if wc are to believe Arthur S.  Draper, who cables from London lo the Vancouver Province:  "Developments in the last year have caused  u lol of Iron ly agreements and understandings  to he cast inlo lhe dust pile, ancl there i.s no  heller illustration of this lhan the publication  in Pelrogracl of secret diplomatic documents  drawn prior lo Ihe war. These exposures indicate how profoundly the situation has changed.  In the Russian archives have reposed secret documents covering every angle and contingency as  lo Ihe iillilude of Russia in case England declared war on Germany. One of these included  llie partitioning of Asiatic Turkey among Russia, France and Greal Brilain in the event of  Allied vi'.'lory. Another document signed a year  ng'; by Polivano.'l'. minister of war, treated with  Ihe problems which would arise in case Roumania was either defeated or victorious. Events  right down to lhe lasl monlh have becn fully  covered in Ihesc documents, and it cannot be  .said thai secrel diplomacy has emerged from the  exposures wilh much honor. Unless Ihe war  aims are revised and redeckired, lhe Allies can  ii'.'I hope to hold lhe full confidence of the people  The belligerents who are fighting for ideals and  for democracy cannot at this stage of the war  allow these, documents to be representative of  their present attitude. No one dares to defend  them now. That is why the Paris conference  can be expected to issue a new declaration of  war aims." '  LANSDOWNE'S PLEA FOR REASON  Tlie war parly in England received an*awful  shock the olher day when Lord Lansdowne,  Unionist leader in the House of Lords, came out  wilh a slrong plea for reason and a restating of  the Allied war aims. Lord Lansdowne is one of  the slaunchcst members of the government of  Great" Britain. He was lord of the treasury in  1809-72, and under-secretary of India; in 1883 he  was a ppointed governor-general of. Canada, and  from 1888 to 1893 he was viceroy of India. He  was secretary of state for war from ,1895 *lo 1900  and foreign secretary from 1900 to 1906, becoming leader of the Unionist party in the House of  Lords on Lord Salisbury's death.    Therefore, a  from a man so high in the  pica for moderation  confidences of the government and the people,  must have more at the back of it than appears  on the surface. His plea is for a revision of the  Allies' war aims and an attempt to secure peace  before "the prolongation of the war leads to the  ruin .of the civilized world." His letter gives  formal adhesion to President Wilson's policy of  a league of nations, and he asks: "What will be  thc value of blessings of peace to nations so exhausted that they can scarcely stretch forth a  hand to grasp them?" *  Lord Lansdo\yne's argument, and, in fact, the  argument. .Of every statesman taking the saner  'view *'of: the Avar, is that, no matter how much  longer the 'governments of Europe compel their  peoples, lo fight each other, the warring alliances  would find themselves in about the. same relative  position, and that.it is simply madness to go on  and on, slaughtering and maiming iiien by the  thpusands,and destroying the best in.* civilization.  If the war is prolonged one year, or two years,  or ten years, there will be then practically the  same reasons and the. same objections to a peace  WHY SOME TOWNS STAND STILL  An exchange tells the reason:  "The citizens of a town make or  ruin its prosperity. A town is not  like Topsy, 'Jist growed.' Its people  must talk its advantages, push its  good points, and set forth its location ancl adaptiveness for whatever  purpose it is best suited. . Weeds  spring up unsown ancl flourish unattended, but a field of corn must be  cultivated. So it is -with villages,  towns and cities. Someone must  work to pull the community out of  the slough of lifelcssness. The live  town is alive because its citizens are  alive. The more pep they put into,  lhe job, the better for the placev  Three or four good workers can'  raise a lown from thc dead. In the  last fifteen years cross-roads settlements have become flourishing villages, moribund villages have become cilics.

Better order some now fi  b  Thursday, December 6,"191-  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  n  Wheat Needs of Allies  Figures published by Mr, Long,  Minister for Revictualling 01  France, will astonish people" t,in  Canada who do not realize ..how  grave the food situation is. Mr.  Long stated that the 1917 wheat  crop of France was only 39,900,-  000 hundredweights, as compared  with 87,830,00-0 hundredweights  in 1913, 76,930,000 hundredweights in 1914, 60,630,000 l-.u>  dredvveights in 1915, and 58,410,-  000 in lyl6.  The entire production in France  -this year of cereals and roots was  222,000,000 hundredweights.  With the most vigorous rationing, France will have to import  .   during the coming year not  less  tthan ,40,000,000 hundredweights  of cereals.' ~  The people of France have done  all they. can. to  produce  food.  While the men have been fighting, the women have been work-'  ing in the fields. They are pre-  - pared to make any sacrifice that  it is in their power to make but  they look to North America to  supply the tremendous deficiency  of food. France must be fed, and  North America must provide the  food unless the whole'Allied cause  is to be endangered, for there is  no other, accessible source of supply.  Food More than Men  .  Lord Northcliffe. head  of the  War Commission in Canada ahd  the'U.S. stated in Montreal:  ' 'Sometimes we only think of the  - navy as battleships,  destroyers,  : and submarines.  Added toythese;  V are -thousands of trawlers,-;drifters, observation: ships, and on ey-;  ������������������. -eryoneof  these Tare men'who  ' must ha,ye their daily full; ration-  , to carry on their work*.  ... " /"Quite'apart: from our navy,"  ", which has prevented any German  ship from appearing on the ocean  for the last eighteen months, are'  - the men in the air. Can you conceive a man going, through that  .    life, clothed in electrically heated  . - clothes and supplied with oxygen  to enable him to breathe, can you  imagine him doing that on. half  rations.  "Can you imagine the boys in  the trenches surviving a week if  .we"had to cut down their pork  and beans and the various things  they have to eat? And-can you  imagine the men , and women  working in the factories going  short? These are some of the reasons to which we in Great Britain  =���������������������������attach=such-enormous-importance  in the control of the food of the  people.  "The danger of the food situation lies in the world shortage of  cereals, meats and fats. Imports  into the United Kingdom from  Denmark are bound to be seri-  .    ously reduced.  This throws" us  more than ever upon NortLAm-  erica for supplies. U[r.less the Allies can import the supplies necessary for feeding their, armies  and their civilian population, victory may slip from our grasp."  "The Allies need from America  next year, ten million tons of  food, representing an expenditure on wheat, flour, bacon and  other products of three or four  millions a day. Canada must do  her share in conserving her food  and increasing her production."  Again Lord Northcliffe speak-  , ing in Chicago, said:  "I do not see the signs of the  bridge across the Atlantic without which all this recruiting, all  this enthusiasm, all this manufacturing, will be useless. Therefore  I entreat'you to believe that  ��������������������������� without transports' your army  will be valueless. In the matter  of shipping you strike at a vital  point in the waging of the war.  If you cannot get the supplies to  the men it seeme to me almost  idle to add to your already vast  Demand for Livestock  No matter what the   sett e-  ment of the war may be, the demand for livestock is bound  to  exceed the supply for many years  thereafter. Altho exact" stastis-  tics may not be forthcoming from  all the warring  countries,  sufficient is knowivto show that there  has been a shrinkage of millions  of sheep, cattle and swine. In addition the consumption of live  stock products has been   enormous and will so continue. .After  the war there will be a setting  of the house in order by each nation that will take a long time to  accomplish. For this reason it  is  encumbent on livestock breeders  and farmers to exert all   their  powers in every, line of iivetock  production. A number of pamphlets issued by the Dominion Department of Agricultrre, furnishes  instruction that cannot fail to be  of usefulness to stock breeders.  One of these pambhiets just issued by Mr. E. S. Archibald tells  of the profit to be derived from  sheep breeding. He makes a special point of. the winter feeding  of lambs and gives   the average  profits for seven years that have  been shown to be possible by tests  madeat the Experimental Farms  in different parts of the country.  The phamphlet can be had free  on application to the Publication  Branch, Department of Agriculture, Ottawa.

How greatly Canadian banks  have assisted iii financing the  war is well known, and' one of  the features in their balance  sheet is the British and Canadian  securities held by them. For the  last financial year the depsits of  theJBanlc of Montreal had risen  "to" over $3u0,000,000, against  $246,779,134. The Canadian Bank  of Commerce shows similar expansion, the deposits having increased from $200,000,000 to  $229,896,000 during 1916.  , The Union Bank of Canada,  which was established two years  before the Canadian Bank of  Commerce, with its head office at  Winnipeg, has naturally been  participating in the development  of the North West territories of  Canada, and has made remarkable progress in recent years. The  balance-sheet at Nov. 30, 1916,  showed deposits, $91,064,960 cash  $14,805,000. reserve, $3,647,173;  notes in circulation, $8,835,117;  and investments, $19,717,120.-  London Daily Telegraph.

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY-  Thursday, ember , 191/  May Be Brought Baek  It seems that many farmers labor under a misapprehension regarding the Military Service Act.  In a statement issued from Ottawa Hon T. A. Crerar has made it  clear that men needed on the  land will not be sent to the trenches. "Indeed," said the Minister of Agriculture, "some men  may be brought back from the  front to render more effective  service on the farm."  The Ottawa Journal has done a  valuable service in emphasizing  this declaration.  As that paper  says, conscription is not merely a  measure to put bayonets in the  trenches.  It aims to strengthen  economic   conditions    at    home  so that Canada's war effort may  not be sapped at its very  foundations. The selective draft keeps  in view the balance between the  military and industrial needs of  the nation to secure the best  results. In following this policy the  Government benefits from   the  lesson learned by Great  Britain  earlier in the war.  In the first  year the voluntary   system  sent  to the trenches thousands, of  recruits who were needed at home.  As was stated in these columns  a week ago, the removal of skilled  workmen   from   various   industries had a paralyzing effect upon  the production of munitions, aeroplanes, food and other necessities. The authorities then brought  back from the front a great body  of men who were required in the  fields and shops. Britain's most  effective war  efforts date from  this intelligent remobilization of  the nation's man-power.  Profitable Year for Fruit  Military Y. M. C. A.  Now that the fruit season is j  over, it is apparent that the fruit  output of the Okanagan will far  exceed in value the most optimistic estimate. The Vernon News  gives the value of the exports at  $2,500,000 for the past season.  This does not include the large  quantities handled by canneries,  evaporators, cider and vinegar  plants and for home consumption.  It would not be too much to say  tliat the value of the fruit crop  this season equalled $3,000,000.  The crop was not much greater  than last year, but not since 1910  have the growers obtained such  high prices for their products.  The distribution, too, has been  complete, the buyers from the  prairies competing actively for  fruit. Most of the crop was sold  in the prairies, tho Vancouer took  a larger share than usual this year  About 75 cars of apples were  shipped out of Canada, 50 cars  going to Australia and New' Zealand and a few to South Africa.  The quality of Okanagan fruit  was excellent this year.   About  tm.**;.t������������������.f  CITY OF ENDERBY  The contributions to the Military Y. M. C. A. from Enderby now  total over $1,950.
