' Well Attended Meeting Held in
City Hall to Hear Food Controller's Representative:
The meeting of citizens in thc
City Hall Tuesday afternoon to
, hear Mr. J. W. Gibson, on ythe
question of food . conservation,
was well attended, and a splendid
spirit of co-operation was in tlie
air, though the audience was a bit
critical in thc matter "of production and markets.;. Mr. Gibson is
representing the" food controller's
office   of    Canada.      He   is   more
- thoroughly organizing the citizens
of the. Province in an effort to increase production and to make the
o best of what we have. ycA number
of ladies attended the meeting and
took an active interest in all that
- was said and dene. As was stated
by Mr. Gibson, food conservation
must start ih the homes, imd the
women of the homes ar^ the ones
to supervise that part of the conservation program.
, In the- course of his remarks
Mr. Gibson said his mission was
to   thoroughly organize   the   Pro-
'. vince and thus do away .with' thc
conflict of purpose which at timers
seemed to be so prevalent.    In all
incorporated   districts   the   idea   is
to   organize   under   city   auspices,
that is, to have the different municipalities take the lead.  We do not
. know what the future has in store
t for us, but we should face the fact
'���������^''that   conditions"  are  liable  to   be
,   very much more serious than we
"' have   yet   seen^ them,' before   they
^arc any better.    People-icll him as
he travels  about .the "country that
they0 are   already - conserving���������are
. .forced to by the,prices'prevailing.
_    This,, he  said, was a good thing,
_ and we must realize that-we must
conserve- still  more,  for. the 'bald,
- fact Is' that there |s "less "food, Jn
|he world today, per capita, than
.ever before in the world's history.
^ ^ Jn Canada we sometimes think
that oqr meat supply is enormous,
t>ut the fact is that all the meat we
can send  overseas  is only 8 per
"cent of our Allies' needs. We.can
_see nothing hut strenuous times
ahead of us. The people are dissatisfied with the way things are
heing handled hy the Government;
good men���������tbe fest that can J������e
o got���������are put in charge of the various departments, and-they do the
hest they can. Still there is.dissatisfaction. The fact is we have
just seen a capahle roan lay down
the duties of food controller he-
cause he felt he was not ahje to do
the work- Voluntary action alone
is not enough, legislation is not
enough; there must come a cer-

Jt is a veritable crime, he said,
to waste food today. There are
certain cereals which will not

. cause of an amount of oil in them.
These must be eaten at home and
those grains which can be shipped
sent away. Jf you will not eat a

cost than wheat and its products,
then somebody overseas must
The   speaker   urged' vacant   lot
steps to"" see that there was an
ample supply of seed grain, etc.
He believed the supply was short
in this locality, and" unless something was done "quickly planting
time would find our farmers
with no see lo plant. He reminded
Mr. Gibson that this district had
.to ship its wheal out in the fall of
the year and in in the spring of
the year. Mr. Gibson said he believed the Provincial Department
of Agriculture was looking after
the seed problem.
'Mr. Gibson was reminded that
iri this district it was not a question of production as much as it is
a question of what to do with-the
produce after growing it. He was
asked if any effort -was being
made to organize a market for the
products the farmers were urged
to raise. He replied that in this
locality he would advise the growing of those cereals and- vegetables
which were not so perishable���������
peas, beans, etc., which could be
either canned or dried, arid would
form a substantial food substitute
for wheat flour, bacon and b'eaf.
He did not know that anything
had or could be .done regarding
marketing. Last year, he .understood,, matters did not turn" out
well for the potato ^ and onion
growers owing"" to. the evaporators
having failed to take , the output.
This failure,'he thought,-was due
to , the shortage- ihv_ ships .to -"carry;
tbe .evaporated products overseas.

get -somethings rdefinittrj-.from ;'tbe

- Mr. Gibson ?>vas "asked- further,
regarding Jislv The food controller,
was- urging repeatedly that more
fish should be substituted for the
r^eats retjuired/for transport, but
it was almost impossible to get any
fish. JJe replied that" time would
not permit him to say all he would
like to on this question. Briefly,
there was. a fish combine at the
coast which controlled the market. A special investigation is now
being held, and it is the intention
of the department to,break \he fish
combine if it takes all summer.

reasonable to suggest that something on, a smaller scale be done
to .encourage the'small man. On

land in the country for the growing of grain. This, he said, would
be the work of the committee to
' be appointed in the district organization. He referred also- to the
importance^ of 'the domestic
science branch in the schools, and
also to the importance of the work
undertaken by Miss Hayes, who
is sent by the food controller's department over the districts being
organized to give practical demonstrations in cookery; the substitution of certain foods for those
required overseas.
Mayor Pill suggested the following names to go on the general
committee, and they were duly
appointed: Messrs. Hassard, Coltart, Skaling, Fulton. Winter, Dow,
Walker,  Welsh  and  Gretton;  Mrs.

Jtea| Chance to Conserve

here a real chance to conserve?

time there .is the crying need to

the good of talking conservation if
the Government cannot take hold
of these wastes and conserve.
Wc talk about saving the crusts of

clothes, and quietly submit to such
flagrant wastes as these. Shipping
wheat from the mills' warehouses
to other, and perhaps smaller mills
hundreds of miles away, and
shipping (lour back again to be
sold within the" shadow., of a mill

> . THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  THURSDAY,   FEBRUARY   7,   1918  measure of the progress toward a moderate peace  made in thc last year." "Labor is not bluffing,"  this writer concludes, "it is in deadly earnest, and  stubborn as a mule."  These condilions in England arc mild compared to those prevailing in lhc thickly populated  districts of Germany. In the gicat ports of Hamburg and Bremen strikes are in progress and the  military authorities are taking stern measures to  deal with Lhe discontented workmen. Thc demand of German laboringmen is lhat thc government shall modify the terms of peace submitted  to Russia, so as not to cause the resumption of  hostilities on the East front. A Copenhagen report, says that all the Socialist leaders have been  summoned to Berlin to discuss political questions, while another report from Amsterdam is  in cITect Lhat Chancellor von Hcrlling refused to  sec the workers' delegation.  While it is pretty certain the governments of  the Central Powers will be able to put an end to  any demonstration on tlie part of labor when  they reach anything like alarming proportions, it  is equally certain that the movement for peace  in Germany and Austria on thc part of labor will  have ils influence in shaping thc policy of those  powers in their peace demands.

H' will reestablish tlie daily train service oyer this branch  Irom Sicamous to Okanagan Landing. Undoubted ly: the railway company-has some very  brainy men at Lhc head of lhis branch of the  great system. And it is'only reasonable to believe Ihesc men knew what ihcy were doing when  they decided to reduce the service in this Valley  lo iri-weekly. Yet, when one considers how tlie  innovation completely demoralized transportation and business generally in Lhc Valley in a  few weeks of operation, it would -seem that  somebody made a huge mistake. It will be a  good lesson for lhe future guidance of these railway ollicials. Business in the Okanagan today  is on a different scale Lo whal il was some ycars  ago, when the railway company forced lhis commimily of developing towns lo gel along as besl  il could wilh a Lri-wcekly service during the winler months. The Okanagan has outgrown these  molasses-limited make-shifts. We have Lhc business for lhe continuous daily I rain service, and  noihing less will serve the requirements of thc  district. It is much lo lhe credit of the railway  officials Lhat they should al once rciuri to normal  conditions when lhcy discovered lhat Ihey had  made an error in judgment. Thc daily "trains  will be resumed on Monday,.Feb._l.1lh   LAtfOK TAKING A STRONG HOLD  The yearly cost to Greal Brilain lo maintain  royally runs into manj" billions of pounds. And  yet, Greal Brilain is as democratic in practical  world affairs as the most democratic country on  earth. "Thc King is only a figurehead," wc arc  told. "He has noihing to do wilh thc practical  end o'f the nalion." Even so. But it is an awful'  price the Empire has to pay for a mere foible  handed down from the old feudal days. Today,  when Lhe world*is crying aloud in agony againsl  autocracy, and thc British Empire leads in the  great fight for democracy, our autocratic rulers  persist in 'lhc policy of feudal days oPshowering  titles upon Canadians, as a means, no doubt, of  subliiely reminding us of the autocratic power  behind our democracy.  But there is a growing distalc in Canada  againsl this practice, and there will be something  doing in this Canada of ours when tbe war ends.  Tn lhc Toronto Salurda3r Night, in concluding  a criticism of thc title business the editor says:  "II would.be well if" a public enquiry was held  re. titles. Who recommends Ihem? "How they  come to be granted? . . . Thc people of Canada are entitled to this information. They arc  demanding that thc whole business be investigated. If our Governor-General has a hand in  such matters he should be cautioned to go slow,  cr belter yet to stop. There is a taint of-commercialism and parlizan politics about a great  many of these Imperial honors. Jf Ihey are  somclimcs procured through a��������������������������� party boss,"as is  prclly well established already, or"if they arc  given for generous contribution to campaign  funds, the public should bc told. Jn the meantime our Government might tc|l King George  and his advisers thai a decree should be issued  governing Imperial titles in Canada, to the effect  that they terminate with thc death of their present owners. King George should be informed  lhat Canadians believe 'every herring should  hang by its own tail, and every tub stand on its  own bottom.'

This is probably as  sensational a statement as  could be  coined. Nevertheless it serves to  bring out in bold relief a twofold crisis, the like of which, the  world has never known before.  The   Triple   Entente   and    its  Allies are not only involved in a  "struggle    .with    the.   .Central  "Powers, the result bf which   has  not as yet been.determined, "but  all of these nations are ripe for  probably the most comprehensive  revolution that has occurred in  history. The Allies, with the exception of Russia, will   evidently wait until the war ends. The  Central powers may   not   watt  that long. Put one thing seems  clear, as soon   as  international  peace comes, internal,   political,  social an4 economic   revolutions  will follow that will bring   into  being a new order, a new  system,���������������������������in fact a new earth. The  handwriting on   the   wall   was  witnessed by  statesmen of  the  United Kingdom when the plat-  ' form of. Labor was   announced.  This platform   proposes   to   do  away with the present   system  of landlordism, with the . "House  ' of Lows, and to fix a  comfortable wage for adult workers. At  the present moment the  workmen bf Russia have the ascenq-  =ancef=ancl their J^ge js tojunite  with the Socialists of   Germany  and put a stop to autocracy   in  both empires. Socialism rules in  Sweden. The king of Roumania  and the king of Greece have abdicated. China has.become are-  public The entire North American continent has been heading  straight for   nationalization   of  resources   and   public   utilities.  The unity-existing   in   internal  affairs is merely a truce, which  will give place to abrupt revolutionary movements as   soon   as  hostilities cease.���������������������������Canada   Magazine.   A man committed suicide at  Cranbrook last week by hanging  himself with his own suspenders.  The report didn't state whether  he previously fell through the  slack of his trousers or not. We  must congratulate the makers  on the strength of their braces.  Starting with a deficit of -$252,  the Kelowna Board of Trade  ended the year with a surplus of  $236.32. After an amalgamation  of the Merchants' Association  with the Board there was a paid  membership of ninety.  In 1917 the Russians shook off  their bonds and in 1918 they  seem quite likely to shake off  their bond interest too.  . Arthur S. Draper, in a cable  to the Vancouver Daily Province,  says: -    "   ���������������������������*  "Britain's suffering on account  of the. food . shortage" is  acute. In less than ten weeks  there has been a proforndchange  in the country's economic position. Whether it has been brought  about by an uncertain run of luck  of.. importing supplies.through the  submarine zone, or from lack of  | foresight- in the high places, or  from general . depletion of the  world's, storehouses because of  the war,  makes little difference.  Jt is unfortunate, that the people are not prepared for present  conditions; in fact, the frequent  optimistic reports of submarine  sinkings have led them to draw  entirely wrong conclusions, and  there has resulted a lot of bitter  complaining over the hardships  of standing for hours in long  queues often to get only a fraction of the food required.  .The failure of the government  to introduce compulsory rationing  last summer in essentials is responsible for much of the present  confusion and dissatisfaction.  There is no mitaking the fact  that labor intends to play a part  in political affair?; and it is gaining strength through the weakness of the government in handling the food problem.  The=situation=cannot-=be^ehar"  acterized as anything milder than  gravely serious. Lord "Rhondda's  injunction to the people to pull  in their belts and laugh at the  enemy is being.followed, but  though the people are laughing  at the enemy, they are turning  sour faces toward those they  consider responsible for supplying and distributing food.  As is usually the case, the  thickly-populated sections are  suffering the most. Many of the  country districts are still enjoying comparatively normal conditions. On the Clyde, at Manchester, Liverpool ahd London,  the shortage is being felt most.  Though the working people are  hard hit the middle class.is teel-  ing the pinch most, because they  enjoy a pre-war income and nothing more. ,  .    ,        Vn  For a full month in the middle  of winter meat has been so scarce  that the people have obtained less  than a quarter of the normal  amount. According to Lord  Rhondda, in a single week the  submarines have sunk ships  carrying- 3,000,000 pounds of  bacon. Britain raises only 40 per  cent of its normal consumption  of meat. Though the stocks of  cattle are only five per cent ^below normal, it is held that - it  is poor business to slaughter now  According to the Hon. D. F.  Houston, Secretary . of Agriculture in the United States, the  United States are using over six  thousand tons of newsprint daily,  and the demand is increasing at  the rate of ten per cent per year.  To supply presses in the U. S.  with newsprint requires annually  3,000.000 cords of pulp wood; to  meet requirements for magazine  and book paper, stationery-and  business papers of all forms,  wrapping papers,: -wall papers,  cardboard, fibre board, etc., 4,-  000,000 cords of pulp wood are  consumed annually. 'Production  barely keeps pace .Avith consumption. The U. S. depend on Canada for a third of its newsprint  paper, either in the form of finished product or. raw material.  This proportion- is increasing  rapidly. According to the. *ame  authority pulp wood standing in  the forest costs from $2.50 to $5  per cord.  According to statistics furnished by R. H. Campbell, Director of Forestry, the Canadian  pulp mills in 1916 consumed for  the manufacture- of- pulp in Canada 1,764,922 cords, valued at  $13,971,458.00, while 1,068,207  cords, valued at $6,866,699.00.  were exported, making, a. total  production^' 2,833,] 19 cords,  valued at $19,791,127.00.  Longing for Days of Boyhood  What has become of the old-  fashioned smokehouse, with its  shoulders, hams, sides and hog  jowl's, and those festoons of sausages; battalions of \ 'Tom thumb"  kits of head cheese and kegs of  pickled pigs feet,^ and the hog  killing bee with its backbone and  turnips, "chitlins"'and crackling  bread, with the print of the cook's  hand in the middle of the brown  pone; the fragrant odor -of ren-  dering.lard with its flavor of bay  leaf?

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY-  THURSDAY,   FEBRUARY   7,   1918  , Tha  FOOD CONTROLLER  SAYS:-  Every   pound   added   to    the  nourishing things to eat���������������������������animal  or vegetable,���������������������������will,count it  this  momentous year of 1918. No one  should shirk taking up work   on  a' small plot through too modest  an idea of* its value. Food'control  has to*begin on a small scale.   It  will be effective through its thoroughness in   the   small   but   innumerable households in the land.  So, if '���������������������������'more, food can. be.grown on  the home plot there   will   be   a  saving in exportable food and to  that extentan increased amount  of food will be released for'-'ship-  ment tothe Allies. Every bushel  extra of vegetables next ������������������������������������������������������ spring  and   summer yjwill ;; release   its  equivalent in wheat. The essence,  of more production  means& more  eatable things from   each  man's  labor. A small area  well  looked  after  is  often   more    profitable  than a large area in an   unfavorable season.  Of the need for all exportable  Canadian food products no one  should longer be in doubt. The  first of a scries of fort-nightly  cablegrams from France to the  Food Controller states with a  plainness that would be pitiful if  practically accessible to vcargo  carriers, it is manifestly "up  to Canada" to strain every nerve  to increase the exportable quantities of those   commodities   so  much needed overseas.  ��������������������������� -��������������������������������������������������������������������������������� - ������������������  Food  Controller  Sets  Prices  Whereas by order-in-council  dated the fifteenth day of November, 1917. it was amongst  other things provided that the  Food Controller may, by written  order, prescribe the maximum  amount of profit or the maximum  price (or both) to be charged on  the sale in Canada, of any food  foods, or any food products designated by the Food Controller.  And whereas it is advisable in  the public interest to make the  following order, therefore I do  hereby order that the amount  which may be charged for bran  and shorts after the 19th day of  January shall not be greater than  is hereinafter set forth namely:  By dealers distributing ex-  warehouses or premises to consumers, not more' than'10c per  bag of 100 lbs. may be added to  the cost at the railway station  where dealer takes delivery.     c  Where delivery is ex-car by the |  purchaser from  the  dealer,   not  more than oc per.bag of 100 lbs.  may be added to the.cost at the  dealer's railway station.
