Array /  r?  TSSS-  Enderby, B. C, February 28, 1918  -  /$*N D':WAiKER'S       WEEKLY  i\ C?  J5Q-   C 1~ *~~r ~  In Honor of Percy Stev^nik  ^  ^c]   .tC; No. 54; Whole N'. 540  The Methodist church was  crowded to the doors Sunday evening by Enderby citizens anxious  to participate in the union memorial services held in honor of Pte.  Percy Stevens, whose untimely  death occurred with the sinking  of the American transport Tuscania by a German submarine. It  was but a slight token of the re-"  spect and love of the community  for the soldier lad whose boyhood  clays were spent in Enderby.,and  whose rollicking, affectionate,  manly nature won a warm spot in  the hearts of all. It was the public expression of the sympathy of  the community for Mr. and Mrs.  Stevens, and the esteem in which  they, are held by all. Faint and  cold as all memorial sarvices seem  to be, they convey something of  the community's mother love for  the one taken away. (ind> something of its sympathy for, the  stricken home. It is, perhaps,, a  weak way to give expression to  that depth ofsfceling and of love,  but it is the best way we have  found.  Percy Stevens,- "Pike,", as he  'was familiarly called, was, lo use  Hie words of his Bend employer,  "onc-out of a hundred young men.  Willing to work, meager to learn,  cheerful always, it never has been  iny pleasure to have a young man  in my office of whom I entertained  higher hopes."  Rev. J. A. Pow and Mr.. D. J.  Welsh conducted the church services and the "combined Presbyterian ahd Methodist choirs rendered the ,music. The impressive  part of the service���������������������������the ��������������������������� roll call  of members of the church and  Sunday School now serving at the  front, and- the placing of the  wreath on the standard of-the" departed���������������������������was performed by Mr."  Smedley and Miss McMahon.1  V.In 'his-eight years residence in  Enderby Percy-,- Stevens -was ���������������������������a  great.favorite;iir school,life, and in'  the mill where he,-.was employed  the ; -last- year > of- his . residence  here.

His sunny, dutiful disposition, coupled with that charm of  ease .in the' doing and his marked  ability made him a leader, in all  circles where leadership is worth  of, duly signed by the m  clerk, and impressed with the seal  of the cily, sent to Mr. Stevens.  .'NEWS AND VIEWS  -������������������,.. ,- V-'Wm.

THURSDAY,   FEBRUARY     8,   1918  RUSSIA IN REVOLUTION  Before the local Women's Club Jast week Mrs.  Landon read an excellent paper on lhc/revolution in Russia.   Referring first to lhe cruelties of  the autocratic i>oven,iment under  the noxy deposed Czar, Mrs"! Landon Jed her hearers step by  step up to llie events proceeding and following  the overthrow oi*' Czarism, Ihen into lhc intricacies of  the si 1 ortrlived Jvcrensky  government.  - About lhis lime, she says. "Mr. Arthur ..Henderson was sent Lo Russia to investigate conditions,  hc Ihen being a Socialist of many years.   On Jus  return lo England hc favored the idea of, a conference at which representatives of all the Allied  nalions could stale their war aims aw) explain  the attitude of their respective nalions."    However, "olher members of the war cabinet did not  agree with him.    Perhaps thcy.lhoughL Jte was a  Gcrman   sympathizer.      However,   events   have  "proved he Avas  right.    If  the Jirilish bat) been  jnore  favorable  toward  the establishment of a  democratic government in Russia, and explained  lor the .Russian people their object in continuing  lhc war Ptussia might liavc continued to be an  ally"  Then came lhc Bolshcviki uprising under the  ^p r o -G ei-n ian=l ea dcrs=Lciuu c=am.< 1 VOio.l s_kv_a n<JLthe  ovcrlhrow of llie Kcrensky governmcnl.  The events following this disastrous change in  all'airs were briefly referred lo by Mrs. Landon  and shc concluded her thoughtful paper wilh  these words, applicable to lhc peoples of all tbe  belligerent powers:  "I Jind myself thinking so often upon bow  Russia, who has now arisen lo thc sense of injustice lhat has been meted out Lo her in lhe past.  will gel on aflcr peace is declared, and we Canadians and all (ireal Brilain have a wonderful  probLem before us, and I wonder if in some way  or another lhe people's governmcnl will henceforth be carried on by lhe people for Lhe people?  When this war between nations is over, are lhe  nations lo have peace at home? . I think lhe  answer depends largely upon the wisdom of  .those who occupy positions of influence and  privilege. If Lhere is a selfish clinging lo things  as " lhcy arc wc shall have strife. Earnest  thought and unselfish action alone can give  peace to Russia and all Lhe olher nalions and set  them in the way of progress towards "a happier  and better world."  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY-  THURSDAY,   FEBRUARY 28,  1918  yet tlie excellent way in which it was given made  the paper most instructive.  In conclusion Mrs. Robson said of llie responsibility which the members of lhc League must  assume: "Those of us who have the provincial  vole have a direct share in the work of the  counlry. You who have thc Dominion vote have  a still "greater share and a more direct blow can  be struck for or against measures which arc suit-  aJile or otherwise. Think well before you strike.  To you who arc Canadian born has come a great  inheritance���������������������������how great 1 have striven lo tell you  Loday.

"  "THAT WHICH IS ETERNAL"  Twenty years ago a little ,woman came with  her husband and seven children to "lake up" a  ranch in thc High Desert of Eastern Oregon, says  Lhc Bend Press." It was real, pioneering���������������������������for .they  lived fifteen miles from thc nearest neighbor.  Their water had lo bc hauled five miles in barrels. There was very little money and a great  deal, of hard work, which, perhaps, after all was  a blessing, because it served to break the monotony of "the desert life. This woman was well  educated and had always enjoyed association  with intellectual people. Shc missed il very  much. Shc longed for music, but there was not  enough money for even a phonograph.  Aflcr twenty of these starved, -monotonous  years her two" boys found good positions in a  California cily. They^wroLc her lhal,they were  going to send her .money to buy some good  clothes and a ticket to come and spend thc win:  tcr in California wilh them. Aboul that time our  counlry was plunged inlo war and thc message  'from her boys which had made her so happy was  followed by "another asking "Shall we enlist?"  / The molhcr sat down in her desert home and  wrote this leller to her boys who were to have  bcen the means of libera Ling hei; from her prison  of poverty and monotony:      7[ 7 . ,   ,   ,  / "This is a matter for you to decide fov yourselves. If I were in your place' J know \ would  go. If you sjiould not come back life is but a  Utile span at best and you wonk) have a part in  cslablisliing the finest civilization of which'tbe  world bus ever dreamed. On some cathedra)' in  Italy, I cannot recall just now1"which onc, there  is an inscription, "That only is important whicb  is eternal."

CANADA'S SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT  Tlie local Women'Voters'- League is taking thc  right way of getting a clear conception of Canada's law-making powers and tlie legislative  bodies empowered with thc task of law-making.  In an educational paper read before thc League  at ils last meeting, Saturday, Feb. 23rd, Mrs.  Robson covered lhe subject briefly yet most fully,  laking Canadian history from 1759 and showing  in a general way the advance made since the first  Canadian Parliament. Much cJ' 1hc information  given by Mrs. Robson is loo familiar to every  Canadian   reader   lo   require reproduction   here,  PYJAMA TROUBLES  "P .O'J").," tbat versatile writer in Saturday  Night, has pyjama troubles just like other  men.

And if you fasten them down al thc  ankles, as we have tried, with rubber bands, they  part company elsewhere, one section retiring  northward, so lo speak, while the other goes  south.making the shivering victim look like onc  of I hose belled Dutch callle with the broad white  band ai::)i:;id lhe equator. But lhe equator in  this case has no relation whatever wilh any torrid zone���������������������������it is morc like lhc Artie Circle in fact.  NEEDS BUSINESS HANDLING  In his argument favoring the creation of a  Board of Economic Finance and Financial Strategy, Otto II. Kahn, of New York, recently said:  "One of the main reasons for Germany's remarkable -development, bolh in peace and the  amazing power of resistance in war, is the way  shc has dealt wilh lhc complex and difficult  problems of economic,. commercial and fiscal  policy. She has recognized long since that such  problems cannot bc successfully handled haphazardly and in town-meeting fashion; still less  can they be made the football of politics.". The  Gcrman way* has been to turn such matters over  for study and report to those, best qualified by  experience and training, nnd, thus having obtained expert advice, to respect it and in its  large outlines to follow il."

The peace .terms- submitted to  the Brest-Litovsk conference by  the Central Powers and now accepted, are as follows:,  Russia should surrender 160,-  000 square miles of territory, with  a population of 18,000,000 and pay  an indemnity subsequently modified  to three billion roubles.  The Central Powers were prepared to return to Russia 7000  square miles in the Grodno government,  Province of Lithuania.

A curious., phase of the  situation, the dispatch says, is the  opinion in some high quarters ihat  President Wilson and America will  oppose such a peace, being unwilling to accept a settlement at Russia's expense.  -  The   Community's   Friend*.  **Any man can take a newspaper.
