 3  PRESS  Enderby, B. C, January 17, 1918  AND      WALKER'S       WEEKLY  Vol. 10; No. 47; Whole No. 499  Last Meeting of 1917 Council  The last meeting of the 1917 City.  Council was held Monday evening;  picscnt, the Mayor, and Aldermen  Coltart, Gaylord and Nichol and  the City Clerk.  By-law No. 108, re electric lighting franchise received its final  reading and was duly sealed.  The   following   letter   was   read  re. the watei flow of Brash's creek  from C. G. Clinc, division engineer  of the B. C. Hydrometric Survey:  Kamloops, B.C., Dec. 29, 1917.  Sir: Have received your- letter  of the 21st inst. re gauge readings  on Brash's creek. Ordinarily, in  considering a power proposition,  a good engineer would1 not be'satisfied with only two years' records  of the stream flow if there was any  ' opportunity to get more. In this  particular case, however, as you  say, the stream does not vary  greatly from one year to another,  and more extended records, while  they would be of "considerable  Value, will not be so necessary.  The ordinary 7 characteristics . of-  the stream during a normal -year  are shown very well by records we  . have;. The main object of continuing the records; longer would be  to ."show how, low the "stream gets  ^ in the low water period of. a,dry  year.' Since you keep in touch  with :the behavior ot the stream  in connection - with _��������������������������� your water-  v> works -system, , you ,".willr know  when the "water, is unusuallyy low.  If you will  notify  me -when: this  - happens, 1 will be glad to go and  . make some measurements,, and in  "/-that-way. you "would be able to get  / some ofj the desired information  at less-expense." / * ' - " !_ ' 1' ''  yu "Under ythese circumstances, if  ,* you do not wish to pay./or further  gauge ;reading*"on-;t^evsfream^ It  might, he all .right-to discontinue  them for the present at; the 'end  of tho year, when the readings  have , alt.' been' receive^ \ at this  - ollice, I will have ^e discharge for  . tbe whole period worked put'and  sent-,to you. , We will- endeavor,  also"; toygive you some, idea of the  amount of power available from  the stream. We will, be able to  make a more intelligent estimate  /If yow can let "us know how much  power; you would expect to need  . or how much you use at present-  This latter .information:could be  supplied by tbe company which,  furnishes your light at present."  Jt was decided, in view of Mr.  Cline's letter to .be unnecessary to  continue to take observations of  _the_ fl.o_w_o_f_theicreek.- and. to -dis  pense with the services of Mr  Hawes as gauge reader. The Clerk  was instructed to write to Mr.'  Cline informing him of "this decision, and stating tbat the year  J9|7 had been one of the driest  years ever experienced in this district, streams and wells which had  never been Known to become dry  having ceased to flow, during the  latter months.  In regard to the application of  tbe Okanagan Saw Mills for water  service; 2-inch service pipe, for  running water motor, it was  moved by Aid- Coltart that a rate  of $2 per month be charged for  this service. The motion not *|eing  seconded, dropped. It was then  moved by Aid. Nichol and Aid.  Gaylord that the charge be $1 per  months The motion carried; ayes,  Aldermen Gaylord and Nichol and  the Mayor; no, Aid. Coltart"  Jt was decided to number the  street light poles, F. T- Turner  undertaking to do the'work at 7c  a figure.  The finance committee reported  the following accounts and they  were passed:  A.  C. Skaling $ 11.93  City of Enderby, tax       58.38  A.

Pell        57.70  Cochrane &  Ladner      101.90  A-communication was read from  Wv E. Scott, deputy minister of  agriculture, urging the city to consider the advisability of amending  any by-laws regulating the keeping  of hogs within the city so as to enable persons who are in a position  to keep hogs to do so. Decided to  reply that the Council had already  taken action along' the lines suggested. '  ������������������  A letter from the Deputy Minister of Finance of Canada called attention to an order in council prohibiting the issue by municipalities of bonds, debentures or other  securities unless, such issue shall  have_-been first approved by certificate in writing by the Minister  of Finance of Canada.        ^  The Mayor drew attention to the  fact that the" association- of the  Enderby General Hospital had  ceased to carry on the institution,  and that the building formerly  used by them was now. unoccupied. As the city had .to raise a  "considerable amount each year in  connection with;- Ihe mortgage  standing against this property, in  addition to cost o������������������^ maintenance  and Joss ofu revenue -therefrom  through it having ceased 'to bear  taxes, he thought that- stetpis  should be' taken, either- to bring  the building into use, again as a  hospital of else jto-turn" it to some  revenue-producing purpose ;so- that  the money being expended on the  property might-not ;be "as., it, now  jwas, a -.complete Joss.

There is loud  complaint heard on~a!l sides. And  judging % from tbe movement of  trains, which come and-go with  much the same punctuality as that  of a decade or'more ago, there "is  good reason for complaint. Perhaps these complaints wijj not do  any good; nevertheless -it does  seem short-sighted for the railway  company to so completely disorganize tbe train service and traffic  generally for the . few winter  months for. the mighty little gained  through it in Jhe way of economy,  or. the saving-of-rolling stock   Enderby Trench Comfort  and a pleasure to know that a club  composed  of ladies  such  as your  NEWS AND VIEWS  The Enderby Trench Comfort! club remembers the boys so well.

The  Kolnische Volks Zeitung says: "President Wilson's program substantially squares with Lloyd  George'%. It is as unacceptable I'or us as is the  British, and is more hrulal still than that of  Lloyd George. Me demands lhe severance from  lhc Gci'maiVEnijiire of Alsace-Lorraine, which is  niuc-lenlhs inhabited by Germans, and hc un-  disguiscdly demands thc severance from the  Empire of parts of Prussia inhabited by the  Poles." ,   ;  Perhaps il is folly I'or anyone lo anticipate lhat  Germany should do anything.else hut lind fault  with President Wilson and Lloyd George. These  leaders have themselves found much fault with  Germany and lhc plans of her leaders. Nevertheless, lhe world generally has accepted the  statement of President Wilson as the clearest  and .most moderate world document ever enunciated. Aflcr reciting in dclail lhe program outlined in Lioj-d George's statement of last week,  President Wilson concludes:  "For sucli arrangements and covenants avc  arc willing io light and, lo continue lo fight until  they are achieved; bufenly because we wish the  right lo prevail and desire a jusl and stable  peace such as can hc secured only by removing  chcif provocations to war, wliich this program  docs remove. We have no jealousy of German  greatness, and there is nothing in this program  lhat impairs it. Wc grudge her no achievement  of distinction of learning or ol* pacific enterprise  such as have made her record very bright and  very en viable. We do not wish to injure her or  to block in ahjr way her legitimate influence or  power. We do not wish to tight her cither wilh  arms or with hostile arrangements of trade if  she is willing to associate herself'wilh us and the  othcr peace-loving nations .of thc world in covenants of justice and law and fair dealing. We  wish her only to accept a place, of equality  among the.peoples of the world���������������������������lhc new world  in which wc now live���������������������������instead of a place of  maslcrv.    Neither do wc presume lo suggest lo  -��������������������������� k OO i-  iier any alteration or modification of her instill! lions. But it is necessary, we frankly say���������������������������and  necessary- as a preliminary to "any intelligent  dealings" with her on our part���������������������������lhat we should  know for whom her spokesmen speak when they  speak to us, whether for the Reichstag majority  or for-  the military party and the  men  whose  creed is imperial domination.  "We have spoken now. surely, in terms too  concrete lo admit of any further doubt or question. An evident principle runs through the  whole program .1 have cu timed. It is lhc principle of justice to all peoples and nationalities,  and. their right to live on equal terms ol* liberty  r.nd safety with one another, whether they bc  strong or weak.

WALKER'S WEEKLY  -The food situation in the Allied  countries in Europe is graver  than it has been at any time  since the beginning of the war,  and is causing-the AmericancGov-  ernment officials deep concern,  says a Washington dispatch.  Official reports picture extreme  food shortage in England, France  '_ and Italy. The fact that conditions in Germany ancl Austria are  far worse offers the only ground  for optimism in viewing the situation. .  In England and France the situation is described as critical "in  a cablegram to the Food Administrator from0 Lord Rhondda, the  British Food Controller, which  concluded with these words:  ' 'I view the situation " with  grave anxiety.".  " Yesterday a cablegram from  - the French Government said that  the wheat" crop had been requisitioned, and that the bread  ' ration would be cut to allow only  seven ounces daily-to all persons  except the very poor and those  doing hard manual labor.  .In Italy conditions are not cso  good as perhaps in either England or France.  Compulsory rationing will", be  started in England immediately  s.with.meats the first commodity  to be put under control.c'Distribu-  ." tion of butter and margarine will  be next-taken in hand, ahd other  foods will be added - as they be-  :  come,rscarcei\  r -    The food situation in Europe is  ; regarded here as so critical   that  ' "the American food administration"  is planning to release an addition-.  ",al-ninety"million bushels.of wheat  despite the fact that the . normal  ��������������������������� "export surplus had been "shipped  '������������������������������������������������������ "by. the'jniiddle of'December.  The  American.people will be asked to  make up the deficiency.  The demand from the Alles   is  so insistent that the food adminis-  '' tration has   decided   to  take ���������������������������a  chance on a-shortage in the spring  to meet in part their.need. If consumption is not-reduced, officials  " see a possible - .shortage  of flour  ,_jn May before the new crop comes  in June. -'".  Keep More Hogs  -���������������������������       "   <-     - ���������������������������  ���������������������������Wm. E. Scott in the   Agricultural Journal, says:  '' Jf-you possibly can, keep more  hogs. The bacon "shortage is "the  most acute of all.   Both patriotism and  self-interest call cn you  to do so. Pork is high in price now  and is likely to go still higher. A  campaign is  at   present   being  undertaken in Canada and  the  States  towards increasing   hog  production. ' Bacon and beans  is  the staple dish of our Tommies.  Every extra hog you raise, every  pound of beef, and every sack of  flour you save is a food bullet  which will help towards a   complete  victory - Cor   the  cause of  right, the only kind of victory  we can have. Whilst fully realizing the many difficulties  confronting farmers, may! conclude  by saying, that every spadeful of  earth turned and made to  produce some food product will help  to defeat'militarism." So let "our  motto for the coming year be,  'Increased production, avoidance  of waste, and conservation of all  exportable food products needed  by Britain and her Allies.' "     L  c  Better Photo Plays  Carrying on a world war -has  taught the practice of thrift and  economy more thoroughly possibly than regulation has done. Further than that, it has forced industries to consider the matter of  co-operation with a view to the  elimination of waste hi overlapping production and- distribution  of*goods, which should prove an  advantage ������������������o the consumer of  ante bellum days. Along the latter line one'.reads of the proposed  merger of all the'prihcipal'photof  play .producing and distributing  agencies into two Big groups. '  - Should this-be done, as" seems,  "probable at the moment,- a higher  standard in production might be  the inheritance of ..the audience  of the future.. The_ first effect  would be a reduction'i.i the cost  of "distribution of films. At present there are nearly a dozen  chains of distributing organia-  tionson this continent, costing"  from-five to ten million dollars to  maintain ;Mf this expense were  reduced to -two ,mi 11 ion there  would be more money to spend  on production. Another item in  support of- the better picture  would be" a reduction in the number made. The waste and loss  under present methods of production are - enormous, and one  of the causes is over-production".  Such a new arrangement would  also greatly modify the star sys;  tern which has done much to sac:  rifice the quality of production  for the whim of a highly overpaid pampered star, the public's  familiarity with whose name,  in most cases, being practically  the only real asset.  0  "The Mediator"  "Being a mediator isstrenerous  work," said George.Walsh, after  his new picture for William Fox,  "The Mediator," was completed.  "I'm glad it's over with. I could  not stand being the character in  real life that I am in this picture.  The life of the ruffian for me, in  preference to .the joys of such a  pacifist."  In explanation of his peculiar  taste Walsh explained that being  a mediator amounted to being,  just the.opposite in this photoplay. The character of Lish Henley attains peace by fighting  everybody who is big enough to  cause trouble. When he has cowed  them all, he is satisfied'that he'll  have peace. This popular photoplay will appear at the Enderby  Opera House next Saturday  evening, Jan 19th.  "From the Mouths of Babes"  A minister was questioning his  Sunday- School concerning the  story of Eutychus, the- young-  man who listening to the preaching of the Apostle Paul, felljisleep  and falling out of a-,windo\v, was  taken up dead.  ' "What," lie asked,' 'do we learn  from this solemn event?"  ��������������������������� The reply, from-a little girl;'  came:- "Please, sir, ministers  should learn not' too 'preach- too  lorn  sermons.:  >>  _>'  -"-'An Ottawa" report'says that the  government 'contemplates a 'rie.w  and really .' thorough - national  registration, service,' with a view  to determining the labor - resources of Canada, and'getting-adequate data on., which' to base; a  comprehensi ve, plan for; mobilizing Canada's man and woman  power for essential war industries.,   ' v    ' ���������������������������  . a Boost your business and your  town by putting an ad in the  home paper.

" -  L The world will look a lot brighter if  you take Sunday dinner at King Edward  These arc  _wcU_as_.in._m  days of rapid growth���������������������������in thought as  nalcriaj..things.    Six months ago Ji  was considered a disloyal act to question flic iclca  of making lhc world safe for Pcmocracy and lo  suggest as a means of doing so the making of  Democracy safe for the world. So far as wc  know, lhc Press was the first paper in Canada  lo voice lhc suggestion. And wc had brick-bals  hurled al us by our friends. Today many of our  ���������������������������large newspapers arc taking up the question in  all earnestness, and arc saying tilings that, six  months ago, would have aroused a bitter storm  of abuse. In lhc Toronto Saturday- Night a stall*  wilier says:  "Long before lhc commencement of the present era ol" slorm and stress, the signs were nol  \\ynling lhat Ibe machinery of government existing m practically every so-called democratic  country, was essentially lacking in aptitude for  iis greal task of uplifting human society to a  plane filling for lhe dignity of lhc race. Thc  ancient custom tbat gave to the rich and powerful actual, physical possession of lhe bodies of  their less fortunate fellows died out before the  times that avc call modern had commenced, except in rare and isolated cases. Thc political  dominance of one class over another has, within  thc past two or three generations, vanished in its  turn; the spread of education has rendered thc  capitalist as loth to assert, as labor is to accept,  the doctrine of special privilege, bul i'or all this  vast growth of democracy the fact remained lhal  throughout the, world thousands of men starved  and suffered for the want 61' thc wealth which  others possessed in useless abundance. It is true  that lack of energy and all, thc other failings  Avhich some'men possess hi/greater degree, lhan  others could be quoted, but il was undeniable  lhat lhe economic structure of thc stale was  partly lo blame."  After commenting upon thc political disgrace  found in Canada  in  pasl  recent ycars,  without  reference to'lhc conditions found in other dem  ocracies, this writer suggests a remedy for the  primary evil, which, he contends, is in our electoral system. "Suppose that when ah election  becomes necessary," says hc, "the postmaster of  each district, furnished wilh a list of thc electors,  were fo forward' to one in ten, selected by  chance, a card bearing thc names of tbe recipient  and of nine of his neighbors, and lhat the elector  so chosen were compelled lo give lhc icn an  opportunity lo choose onc of their number to  represent them, indicating this choice in wriling,  wilh proper provision for an affidavit by the  convenor; is il not certain lhat the average group  of ten would readily make al least a majority'  choice? If Lhe electors so chosen were similarly  invited lo repeat the acl, and lhe routine repeated  often enough to reduce the number of lhc finally  elected lo a suiUiblc point, wilh a lurlhcr proviso  lo the eiiccl that no" elector might refuse ollice.  would nol the resulting parliament bc a body  truly representative of thc people of Cauada?  And would lliC3r not bc a group of lhc best available In lent of thc counlry? Deny this, and you  deny thc essential virtues of the ordinary citizen,  and thereby once again deny thc possibility of  good government. Collusion, bribery, patronage, blind adherence fo a party name, thc election of a government on a platform fundamentally unsound, but speciously attractive, the activities of thc professional politician, all vanish  immediately. Cap lhe structure by a cabinet  similarly chosen by parliament, and individually  asking at stated periods for a vole of confidence,  provide salaries to those members who desire lo  draw Ihem, sufficiently large to enable any man  to do his duly lo his country, and lhc machine ol"  government will function. . . . Democracy is  nol a. failure, but somewhere il musl soon" bc  proved a success, lest worse befall us."  Rationing for Canada  Pork was king at a recent  meeting of the Vancouver conservation section of the civic  bureau of the Board of Trade,  when the vital question of immediate conservation of food supplies  on hand was discussed and  suggestions made dealing with  increased production.  Along  the former lines    the  matter of rationing the people of  Canada was put forward, the belief generally" expressed  among  those present being that this was  one "of the steps which should be  taken  immediately  in order  to  carry on until the  next harvest  was garnered.   Mi*  Fyfe-Smith,  chairman- of  -tlie    conservation  section, submitted the  report  to  the meeting,   which   was   under  the chairmanship of Mr.   R.   W.'  Greer, the   president,   following  which  Mr.   A.   McKay    Jordan  opened tbe discussion' by sugges;-  ting- that a pi am for5-the settling  o( the waste acres of B.
