Robinson  Luka   Singh  Sing ;.   J.   Nichol   ..  The first statutory meeting of  the city council was held Monday  evening and all members elected  were sworn in. It remains for  the Mayor and Aldermen to ap-  . point an additional alderman to  fill thc requirements of the law,  there having been only four nominated  at  the  time of election.  The following were appointed  as chairmen of the several civic  committees: J -  Public. Works���������������������������Aid.   Hawkins.  Street   lighting���������������������������Aid.   Gaylord.  Public  Health���������������������������Aid.  Nichol.  Finance���������������������������Aid.  Coltart.  City Hall���������������������������Mayor' Dill.  The Mayor stated that as the  council lacked one alderman, he  would jdefer lo a later date the appointment of the "water ''and fire  protection  committee.  The    second    Monday    in    the  -month was   named   as  the   regular  meeting night of the council.    ,   '..  A .copy, of the following resolution from the Vernon Board of  Trade was read? and on motion of  Aid. Coltart and- Aid.-Nichol,. the  resolution  was duly endorsed: _ -  - "That the Boards of Trade and  . other public bodies of the Okanagan de.sire to make it plain at the  -outset that, in protesting .against  the, reduced freight arid -passenger  service' on: the Okanagan - railway  and-lake branch of the C..P.

JJ Js 7 believed,  however,' that " unjust , discrimination has been exercised against  the Okanagan Jn  the" curtailment  .of the service over this branch*  while" on "other lines no such cur-,  tailment has taken "place, ^ This is  -particularly oppressive in- connection with, the mail.service and its  consequent- dislocation of.hw.siness  affairs ;V Under existing "conditions  fhis district now receives only  three mails - per week from the  past and tin* service from the  West is, little^ better as connection  from the" West between the boat  ond the fettle: Valley Railway  train at penticton is the exception  rather than the rule, puring the  whole of the week between Jan.  6th and Jan. 12th no mail from  Pacific Coast points reached Okanagan points over the Kettle Valley line. The mixed passenger and"  freight trains , between, Sicamous  and Okanagan landing are compelled to do so much freight  shunting that anything like a satisfactory time schedule is an impossibility under the present system. It is admitted that the Okanagan branch, which serves- a  thickly populated section, . producing over eighty per cent of the  fruit raised in British Columbia,  i.s one of the most profitable feeders to the mainline of the C.p.R.  and is thus justly entitled to favorable consideration.  "It is not apparent, that any appreciable saving in fuel has been  effected by discontinuing the daily  train service as additional freight  trains have to be run from time  to time; further, the absence of a Hi���������������������������., ���������������������������P���������������������������f-.  roundhouse at Okanagan Landing  makes it necessary to keep up fires  in the engines which lay over at  that point. -  "It is- stated that the proposed  reductions in the mainline trains  fromVancouver have not gone into  effect; therefore it seems that the  Okanagan has been subjected to  an undue hardship which other  sections have escaped. The Kettle  Valley line traverses a comparatively thinly populated region,  which until recently had bcen  served by an alternative route, and  as   no   reduction   in   service   over  the -foict  that   a   line   several  hundreds 'of   miles   in    length    offers  much better opportunities for effecting' economy in, fuel than a  short branch of. fifty miles, it is  felt ' that unjust discrimination  against - thc Okanagan is, in this  instance, very  apparent.  "Be it therefore resolved, lhat  this Board most emphatically protests against the action of the C.  P. B. authorities in reducing the  service on the' Okanagan branch,  and, at thc same time, expresses  the hope .'that these representations will receive due consideration and that a return to thc daily  service will at once be made."  issue   has   bcen   camouflaged   long  enough.

We  are also of opinion that the people  of this part of the Pominion, of all  the Dominion, in fact, would welcome a clean-cut statement from  Premier Borden on the Chinese  question. Where there is so much  smoke, there must be some fire.  And if, as is reported, it i.s the  Government's intension to dimip  thousands of coolies into Canada,  it is only just to the people that  they should bc told about it.    The  "Grey, has given to "the worid- pari  Gray's last njessage Jo the pmpire  in a book recently published by  Hodder & Stoughton, Toronto. A  message such as this has 'very special significance at fhis time when  the whole fabric of modern society has been thrown into the  fiery crucible of war. Far more  keenly than most public men, pari  Grey realized the perils to liberty  and progress involved in thc great  European struggle, perils which  might still exist, even if Germany  were decisively beaten. These  perils lie in the long and bitter  struggle between capital and labor  ���������������������������in the selfish tyranny of parti-  zan politics���������������������������in the spirit of arid  sacerdotalism in lhe church, and  in the general tendencies of society towards money-grabbing industrialism and materialistic standards of happiness.

CAIVJQUrLAGPP  According to the Vernon News," our esteemed  contemporary is in receipt of a bitter tirade on  -The Press from Mr. S. Poison who states in his  characteristic style that The ������������������rcss falsified when  it printed Ihis innocent item of news, which was  reproduced in thc columns of flic News:  "Mr. S. Poison has opened a real estate o.Mice in  Vancouver. He bus apparently determined to introduce something new into Vancouver real estate, for  he has tlie one word  over tlie door, "Righteousness.".  the lot that will flood Western.Canada as soon as  the deal between the Big Interests and the Dominion Government has been completed."  It would appear from several items of "inspired news," which have .appeared in the daily  papers the past few weeks, that there is much  truth in this statement quoted above. And in  view of what is impending, a resolution "'was put  through at a meeting of the Independent Labor  Party of Canada al Toronto a few nights ago  strenuously opposing the importation of Asiatic  labor, and the remarks of members of thc Honorably Discharged Soldiers' Association, who said  that Ihey were willing to oppose thc measure  with force if necessary, were loudly cheered. Dr.  Chas. Sheard, M.-P.-clcct, of Toronto, is" quoted  as saying: "The' emergency is not pressing  enough to open thc door to Asiatic coolies. I am  not going to sit down quietly and sec thc ranks  of labor lied down by Japanese and Chinese."  WHERE DOES THE FAULT LIE?  Are you going- to do any  '.Building1 or Repairing-  This Season ?

Enderby  Many people Avill undoubtedly conclude that he ought  to have,.arrived on the spot some few years ago."  Tliis piece of news was told Tlie Press by a  citizen-returned from the coast whose word and  good in ten lions were-never, questioned, and who  could have had no reason for misrepresenting thc  facts. ��������������������������� However," as Mr. Poison says hc did not  open a real estate olTice, he didn't. It wasosoiiic-;*' He slates in "The" Xews thai, had  Ihe Press spelled ihe word "l^iglit-use-ness" as is  iiis hobby,1lie would not have tho light so bilierlv  of the crime. .Strange, isn't it, how men will  change their ideas. It.wasn't so long ago that society's best people were all swelled up on real  estate deals. To-day il is unsafe to whisper lliei  word in connection with the name of some men.!  (mess the war is going to unpopiikirizc even the  icaJ estate business. .  "NO COOLIES FOR CANADA"  Perhaps lhe oflicial paper of organized labor  in Western Canada, Tlie Fcdcrationist, of Vancouver," knows whereof it speaks, iwid perhaps ii  does not, but it says thai "plans for the importation of thousands .of Chinese coolies into British  Columbia and the prairies -arc far advanced. The  utmost secrecy is being maintained. While the  people of British Columbia have been slow to  learn llie facts, thc people of Eastern Canada,  recognizing lhc peril and b}r reason of living  closer to Oltlawa, probably knowing morc about  tlie schemes ol* lhe cheap-labor promoters, have  been loud and frequent in protest. But tlie people of Brilish Columbia are waking up to the  menace with which lhe big interests are threatening labor of this coast. . ... The scheme was  kepi a dead secret for months. But the cat is out  of the bag, and there are 17,000 coolies being held  in barracks al Williams Head. Tbe small army  of them at Williams Head are held as the first of  The criticism offered a few days ago by the  Coast Markcl Commissioner, Mr. R. C. Abbott,  in effect lhat thc country was over-ridden with  food controller's committees, and thai in spite of  Ihis little was being accomplished of real value in  the conservation of thc country's resources, was  nol without merit.' Mr. Abbott said lie believed  there had been too much catering lo the interests  of the dealers and not enough attention paid to  problems of growers, and that it was.poor policy  to permit dealers in various lines of foodstuffs to  formulate regulations to govern  themselves.  In Ibis criticism, Mi\ Abbott appears to forget  lhal'it has been thc policy of our lawmakers in  times of peace to Jet "the interests" formulate  regulations to govern themselves, and it is only  natural lhal lhc governmcnl should continue to  lean that way in limes of war. Take, for instance, the government regulations in lhc Canadian Bank Act. All were formulated by thc  bankers themselves, and in the banks' interests.  Mr. Abbott's suggestions regarding lhc killing  of young slock by our farmers, and fixing a minimum price on beeves, elc, is a good onc. Thc  government fixed a minimum price on wheal;  why nol a minimum price'on beeves and hogs,  as well as a maximum price?  Jusl now thc food controller is talking of putting a stop to the eating of any bacon or beef. If  lhis order is enforced, as successfully as the regulations of thc past have been enforced, wc shall  probably sec fresh pork more plentiful than ever  and our calves knocked in -' the head by" lhc  farmers. Efforts have been made by the food  controller's publicity department to make it appear that all criticism of that department is part  of a wide and deep and direful enemy scheme to  depress lhc confidence of the people in the food  controller. Perhaps the coast market commissioner will he taken to task for bis criticism of  ihe food controller's regulations. This is all  wrong. JI seems to have become a, and a  very evil habit* for incompetency to camouflage  thc issue by declaring all criticism of men in  ollice to be of German origin, and pari of the  great war propaganda. The result is that men  arc all hut forbidden -to speak out on any question, even when they sec wrongs being continued.  So far as The Press is concerned, wc June, op  many occasions spoken plainly on qeslions which  we believed to be for the good of Canada. And  wc intend to continue to so speak.

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ALL SJUTRPMJ3  From lhc publicity bureau of the Union Governmcnl conies Ihis slalemenl, under an Ottawa  dale: "Some anxiety is expressed here at the  stand taken by lhe Quebec Government in repudiating, as illegal, unconstitutional and ultra  vires of lhe Federal Government, the Order-in-  Council prohibiting for lhe time being all undertakings nol essential to lhc country's full participation in lhe war aiid '-.requiring thai all provincial, municipal and private notations be first approved by the powers at Ottawa. Sir bonier  Gouin's attitude is thai this is an infringement on  provincial' rights, and perhaps it is, but provincial righls are no more sacred than individual  rights, which are being infringed tlie world over  through the necessities of the war. Every one  of the belligerent countries has passed a War  Measure Act of some sort or other which gives  the Government of the day power to override all  the usual customs, arrangements, statutes and  constitutions of peace to thc degree necessary for  the proper conduct of the war. The danger is  such that thc old rules are declared off and new-  ones are made to meet the emergencies as they  arise. In Canada, as in all the other warring  countries, the central government, -with the  cheerful acquiescence of the people, exercises a  right of eminent domain, so to speak, which it  would not dare lo contemplate in limes of peace."

Information has been received by the  Food Controller which shows that  the utmost effort must be made  to increase spring acreage, and to  secure a much larger production  of bread grains in 1918 than was  done in 1917. Mr. Hoover has already pointed out that if ships  have to be sent to more distant  countries to carry foodstuffs to  Europe, fewer ships will be available to carry troops and supplies  from this continent, with a result  that the continued participation  of the U. S. and Canada in the  war will be greatly hampered.  The situation has been thoroughly "canvassed, and among  those who have studied it there  is unanimous agreement that the  only solution of the food problem  is greater production-in North  America. In this connection it is  especially important that the  spring acreage sown in bread  grains should be as'large as po3r  : Every person who can possibly  produce food must do so, no matter how:small his or her contribution may be: Those who cannot  produce food, can at least- _con-  serve it. The utmdst economy is  imperative, the situation today is  critical, and the world is.-rapidly  approaching that condition when  price will not be the most imppr-.  tant question, but when even the  people of Canada may be glad to  eat any food .they can obtain. -  The successful prosecution of  the war by the Allies will depend'  -to a very=large extent upon the  extent .of food production and  conservation this year by   the  peopjeof North America.  : ���������������������������  , Baron Rhondda in a recent  message.says: '"fhe: food position  in this, country and in France  also can without exaggeation be  described as critical and anxious.  I am now. unable to avoid, compulsory regulation., I fear it will  .have to come with long queues  of people awaiting in tlie severe  weather in practicallyevery town.  In England far the : daily necessaries of life."  Assembling stations to be established by the government,  where carloads of young stock  could be assembled and sold to  stock farmers in various districts.  The food controller to give his  suggestions to consumers the  force of law and see that they  are carried out instead of merely  issuing suggestions and warnings  to dealers, producers and consumers.  Coast Markets Commissioner  R. c. Abbott, in bis official capacity, has for a number of years  made a close study of food W.Q-  duction and conservation. Discussing these problems the other  day in Vancouver, he declared  -that-many=f eatures p������������������the system  adopted by the Food Controller to  bring about greater production  were wrong.  Mr. Abbott said that the country was over-ridden with food  controller's committees. "He believed that there had been too  much catering to the interests of  the dealers and not enough attention paid to problems of growers,  and tjmt it was poor policy to  permit dealers in various lines of  foodstuffs to formulate regulations to govern themselves. These  regulations, he stated should be  made by men of independent  mind, outside of the trade alto-  crether.  ������������������������������������������������������Jtis impossible to beat the  law of supply and demand unless  he sets the price of foodstuffs all  along the line;" was another  statement of the official.  Mr. Abbott then outlined the  following suggestions which .he  claims would aid in ameliorating  the food crisis:    ��������������������������� -<  The Pominion Government to  take over all evaporators and evaporate all Canada's surplus potatoes, guaranteeing cost price to  potato growers.  Prohibit the killing of any hog  which weighs less than 150 lbs  when dressed.  Let the food controller fix a  minimum price on beeves dressing over 700 pounds, to encourage  feeding for greater weight, and  thereby bring about increased  beef production.  Big Events Approaching  A special dispatch to The Manitoba Free Press from Stockholm,  says:  "Jhs bitter cold wave sweeping cvjr Europe has momentarily  paralyzed army fighting on all  fronts. Thirty civilians froze'' to  death in Southern France. Nevertheless cautious military observers, notably that sane commentator, Captain Norregard. are unanimously of the opinion that  Europe is facing operations that  for extent and terribleness will  exceed anything the war has  hitherto brought. '  "Despite the cold, enormous  German concentrations approach  completion. Heavy trains with  picked troops ���������������������������> ceaselessly roll  through Belgium., Practically all  civilan trains are suspended. The  same is true in Northern France  from Armentieres to Douai.  "Even German observers, long  accustomed to these swift and  colossal sh'iftings, confess amazement over the extent of current  movements, and sober military  critics repeat the phrase, 'now  comes the year of Armageddon'  German civil circles do r.ot expect the offensive before the end  of January .or the middle of Feb-  ruary-because of the fastness of  preparations. ^Captain;Nqrregard  says: ,..-       '-  .   V ���������������������������   . ,  V* *|t;will be a struggle which  even for those emerging vic-  torious,;ifvvictQrsythere'are to be,  will cost so much blood that, 'it  will/weaken them for decades.'  "He adds in his vivid style:  ..- J^put it seems as if the fighters,  themselves hesitate to open tjie  witches' dance for which.the m  struments are tuning wM }wfi  as the possibility exists that this  horror-can be averted. Nevertheless everybody is working feverishly^' s  "Norregaard declares that the  war's most important period impends, hence the most far-reaching preparations.  "Naval observers believe the  Entente are preparing a great  blow at sea, involving American  resources, as the result of the  Paris conference. This and Je|h-  coe's retirement are believed to  signify a submarine war so seri^  ous that the, Entente intends to  strike at-the^rcbto^eviU-by^aU  tacking the German bases. In the  best naval.opinion successful attacks on bases in the North Sea  would change the course of the  war."  Baubles  One of the big farces in Canada today is the .way titles are  given out every so often for the  rewarding of sundry political  favorites.  ' We are supposed to be in the  war to help make tho "world  safe for democracy," yet this  farce of getting English titles  for Canadians is still persisted in.  The titles are not usually given  for any great merit, unless it  happens to be the kind of merit  that is earned by being faithful  and working hard for whatever  political party happens to be in  the saddle at Ottawa.  The sooner that titles, monarchies and that sort of thing are  abolished from the world, the  better it is going to be. All men  are not created equal, the Constitution of the United States to  the contrary notwithstanding,  because some are born with  more ability than others,"but the  tacking on of this, that or the  other handle to a name is not a  square dealat all.  In a western democratic country like Canada it ought to be  cut.out. The times are too serious  for such baubles.���������������������������Kaslo Kootenain  Will Fight to the Death  New York���������������������������Britain has resolved to fght Germany -to the  death, a determination strengthened by America's entry into the  struggle, Sir Frederick Edwin  Smith declared in delivering the  annual address before the New  York Bar Association.  ~ "As the humble mouthpiece of  the.British," he said, "I bring  you cthis message, reinforced and  comforted by your alliance, clasping the hands of this conntry,  we say:    _     -    V ���������������������������-' -    - -*V"\~ ,  .���������������������������-Whatever happens, whatever \  the cost-may be, of blood, and  treasure, whatever mortgages we  draw upon the future .vitality - .of  our stock and upon our resources  this quarrel goes on to the death.

Summarizing the results of the  underwater campaign since February J., the Tageblatt claims that  the U-boats have sunk S2X,000  tons of shipping monthly, and  for the whole year the toll may  be expected to show nearly 10,-  000,000 tons, and that the rebuilding of new ships by the Entente and neutrals during the  year will replace only between  2,500,000 and 4,000,000 tons of  the losses.  The newspaper says the monetary loss to Germany's enemies  as the result of the year's work  will reach $5,000,000,000, figuring  the value of the ships at $250 per  ton and their cargoes at the same  rate.

January 24, 1918  ��������������������������� Gost-of "Distribution'  We.,  are   strongly   urged   by "the  Food   Controller   to   economize   in  the use  ol" wheat so  that  a. maximum   quantity  would   be  available  for   overseas   consumption.     Various   recommendations  were  urgc(l;  among others, an  increased  use of  what   has   been   always   considered  a cheap and nourishing l'ood. Rice  i.s   the   staple   diet   of   the   Oriental  nalions.   and   one   would   naturally  suppose     that     arrangements     for  plentiful    and    -cheap    distribution  would ensue.    T.ike all other foods  lhe price has increased  materially,  first al  the  point of production  in  the   Orient,   secondly   by   increased  ocean   transportation,   and   thirdly  by  increased   milling  costs.   Unlike  Orientals,   wc   demand   thc   milled  and  prepared  article, losing in  the  process   much   of   the   nourishing  and     digestive      qualities.        Rice,  milled   or  otherwise,   should   furnish  those desiring lo economize  in  the use of wheat or wishing for a  variation   in   diet,   both   a   pleasant  change  and   :i   nourishing  diet.     If  wc are to economize in lhc use of  wheat     such    a   substitute    should  reach the table of thc consumer as  cheaply   as   possible.     Again,    thc  cost   of   distribution   is   out   of   all  proporlion.      The    Winnipeg   Free  Press  says   the   rice   used   there "is  largely    brought    from    Vancouver  and  Victoria.    Thc  cost of  rice  at  the   mills,   f.o.b.   cars   is   T^c" per  pound.     The   price   in   Winnipeg,  retail,   is   10c ^jer   lb.     The   consumer   sho'uld   know   how   this   increase  is' arrived  at,  for thc  price  in   Winnipeg   is   a   guide   for   the  price  generally  in   the  West.     The  ,. manufacturer's     cost/   as     before  stated   i.s J&c   lb.    .The   freight   to  1  Winnipeg   from   Vancouver   figures  out 3-5ths of a cent per lb,, for thc  1,-170  miles.    Thc  cost of distribution, in-Winnipeg,  from  thc car to  the consumer, amounts-to 1  9-10, a  fraction under 2c per lb.    In other  words, 75 percent covers the manufacturer's   cost,    6    per   cent   the  freight and  If) per cent the cost of  distribution.  What justification is there for  the existence of a system of distribution that takes an ar'ticle produced in Japan: milled in Vancouver and "landed in Winnipeg,  for example, al 81c and adds 19c  to ils original cost, for the service from car to consumer?  A Fox Special De Luxe  Enderby theatre goers are certain to enjoy the treat in store  for Saturday night, Jan. 26th,  when Theda Bara ancl William  Farnum, the most popular stars  on the cinema stage, will both  appear in that great Fox production, "The Darling-of Paris," a  play based on Victor Hugo's famous romantic tragedy, "The  Hunchback of Notre Dame,"  with Miss Bara impersonating  the beautiful character of the  gypsy girl, Esmerelda. There,are  many dramatic episodes connected with this narrative, embracing several hundred scenes.  It required the services of more  than 1000 persons to properly, interpret this famous drama, giving  it the realism described by the  author.  The scenes are located in Paris  many of which are in front of  that famous edifice, the cathedral  of Notre-Dame, which is known  in French history as one of the  most historical - buildings in that  country. Many of the scenes are  intensely exciting, and' all of  them dramatic. -  Miss Bara has become the most  admired actress on the screen.  She is the best known woman in  her sphere of life in the world.  William Farnum is known in  every country where moving pictures are in vogue. Mr. Farnum  is thoroughly established as one  of the really industrious stars of  the photoplay.

The recent drastic measure of  the United Stales Fuel Controller,  shutting down all manufacturing  and business houses easl of tlie  .Mississippi for a period of five  days nnd compelling them to take  a holiday each Alonday for a pe -  iod of ten weeks, indicates how  serious the  fuel  problem  is, and to  "what desperate remedies must bc  resorted to in order lo meet tlie  new conditions. Speaking in connection with Ihis drastic step by  the United Slates. Mr. C. A. Ma-  grall-i. Canadian Fuel Controller,  has this to say:.  "It i.s merely an indication that  tlie United Stales is al war. When  a country is at win-, one never  knows what will happen at any  moment. . . .It must bc remembered that when the largest and  most- important counlry in the  world undertakes* to throw itself  into lhis great world war, and is  marshalling all its forces to that  end, drastic steps will have lo  be taken before its machinery will  be leadjusled so as to gel its maximum of eflicicncy. Canada gradually worked to a war footing two  years ago, and I believe it is generally fell lhal she has reached her  present eflicicncy by a gradinl  process which, in a small country  -like this, can be done without any  extraordinary measures, being necessary. I have been working in  complete accord with thc American fuel administration, and probably no one in this country is in  a better position to know thc tremendous dillicullies which have  confronted Dr. Garfield in his  work. It is needless to say lhat  the moment the situation arises in  Canada requiring drastic action,  the matter will be brought to the  attention of the Government."  How it is in Europe  , In Mr Hoover's latest communication to the Food Administration he says: ''There is no  waste of food-among any of our  Allies. There is the most drastic  reduction in their consumption.  There is actual privation among  their women and children. There  is starvation in Belgium. Every  particle bf diminished consumption by the people of America  is one particle more for the soldiers, men, women and children  of our Allies, and for the starving people in other countries.  Voluntary individual self-sacrifice  to save the world is the call to  the people of the United States  and Canada in one of'the greatest crises of the war."  Mr. Hanna'a J-ate������������������f Appeal  At the beginning of the New  Year the Food Controller appeals  to all public-sp-'ritcd citizens to  study the facts of the world food  situation and their own personal  responsibilities in connection  with the food shortage.
