Not necessarily dangerous times, however, if we.take them  rightly arid are considerate in our attitude, toward  each other, and each other's opinions and ideas.  What willVnake these critical times serious and  dangerous, will be such "bull" as the Toronto  Saturday Night is peddling in relation to what it  calls Bolshevism in this Canada of ours.  After referring to the recent strikes of'the firemen and police in Winnipeg and Montreal, and  that of the police force in Toronto, that great  family journal of well-known capitalistic tendencies, sums it all up one word, "Bolshevism," and  then waxes warm under the coLlar as to what wc  should.do about it. "One bullet from a soldier's  rifle would be worth a dozen sermons," it says.  This doctrine reminds onc of that of ancient  times when kings by divine right cried, "Off with  his head!" But, let's have no fear. Canada.is  nol going back to thc dark days. Wc don't want  to start any shooting.   Somebody might get hurt.  Canada can settle all labor and other difficulties���������������������������and settle them right���������������������������without Bolshevism.  But, let this be understood, all injustices arc going lo bc righted, so far as it is humanly possible  for thc people to right them, ancl if thcy cannot  be righted without what is disdainfully called  Bolshevism, then we'll have Bolshevism. One  cannot mistake the meaning of the times.  Wc do not know what Bolshevism means. Before the word was coined thcy used to use the  word Socialism tc convey thc same idea, but now  lhat all thc Allied Governments havc adopted  most of the planks of thc Socialist's platform in  order to "carry on" in war times, thc word "Socialism" does not carry thc odium it used lo carry  and so0"Bolshevism" is used instead. But, listen:  Before "Bolshevism" can become dangcrousoin  Canada, there must be thc conditions which tend  to make it dangerous. And unless wc go to the  root of things and right them when wc find them  wrong, then all "bull" about bullets being better  than sermons will get us nowhere Jand we'll end  in a madhouse just as Russia did with our streets  running in blood. For it must be remembered,  two can use pistols  ous mood; tlie men coming home from the reality  of things can spot the. "cam" a mile off. And they  won't take hold of any fool trap���������������������������nor clap-trap.  Are there vyrpn'gs existing? Then right them.  Are'there promises unfulfilled? Then fill them.  Are class privileges existing? Then cut them out.  Get down to the practical. Call a spade a, spade.  Talk matters over. If there are ugly f acts j.'face  them. Cut away the bump and buric and frills  and.get after the enemy under, your hat. Taboo  this bullet stuff.  We don't know anything about the business of  thc Bank of Montreal. But, unless we mistake  the reading of' the public ,mind, .the fool-killer  should have got around before the following  paragraph was made part of the annual statement of that great institution. It is such statements as this, and the purpose back of such statements, ^hat force a, people to become' Bolshevists in their thinking! Tlie chairman said:  'Taxation cannot easily be lessened, and may be  increased. A levy on capital, advocated in somc  quarters, must only result in thc stifling of individual incentive and enterprise, and the penalizing of industry, self-denial and thrift.. Taxing  capital to thc point of unemployment in industrial enterprise would involve unemployment of  labor and produce serious consequences. If  placed principally upon consumption the burden of taxation is dstributed."  . When such a brazen statement is made, it is  not unreasonable for a <paper such as the B. C.  Veteran's Weekly, the returned soldiers' official  organ, to call attention to it in these, words:  "How does that affect thc soldiers' interests?  When he returns from the front will he bc a  bank shareholder or a consumer?  "That is only one out of many questions that  might be raised from a study of this and similar  reports. So the men who have returned, or who  shall yet return from the front, you men who  have made sacrifices incalculable for this Canada of ours���������������������������realize that the government of the  country is in the hands of those and such ,like  men?

Wright states tliat he never attended .a  convention of Okanagan Valley town delegates in  his long residence here which ,was so a unit on  thc requirements of the occasion of its gathering  as the convention held at Vernon on Friday lasf  to consider the advisability of sending a delegation to Ottawa to urge upon the Government thc  construction of the C. N. R. from Kamloops to  Kelowna. Delegates were at the meeting from  all towns south of Enderby immediately benefitting by the construction of thc surveyed road  about to bc built when war broke. There was not  a dissenting voice, and all.showed a readiness for  immediate action when the matter was put up to  Ihem. A delegate will go from Lumby, Kelowna,  Vernon. Armstrong and Kamloops, thc expense  of each to be borne by lhc lown represented.  ���������������������������The purpose of tlie convention was clear, and  if unity of purpose counted thc delegates would  have laken the first train home with them, rails  and all. It was so well understood that the need  for lhc road is so-much greater now than when  it was planned and sanctioned'by thc people and  lhc government that this phase of'the question  was not debated. The district * to be opened up,  and which has patiently waited for the road, was  unanimous-in the belief that if the proposition is  properly put up to the Government at Ottawa,  ���������������������������provision will bc made for construction work to  start early in tlie summer.  Da la i.s lo be gathered showing the production  of lhe dislrict and llie enormous quantity of land  vet undeveloped, and, in addition, the great timber possibilities yet untouched in thc district.  Delegates arc lo bc chosen by the towns sending them. They will bc named sometime this  week.

The estimated decrease in European live stock since the  war, not counting Russian, Austria-Hungary and  the Balkans, is made up as follows: Cattle, 28,-  080,000; sheep, 54,500,000; hogs, 32,425,000; a  total of 115,005,000.  Last census Canada's total live stock numbered  0,52,113 cattle, 2,174,300 sheep and 3,634,778  hogs; a total of 12,335,191. In other words, thc  decrease in Europe is nearly ten times the total  live stock population of Canada, counting only  those leading countries from which figures are  available. -  Here arc some more figures which should be  posted up a^U* thought over by our farmers:  Britain's imports as based on. normal ���������������������������figures are:  Beef, 1,077,154,000 lbs; Pork, 1,261,082,032 lbs;  butter, 452,795,264; ���������������������������eggs, 190,850,520 dozen.  Canada, in the year ending in the fall of 1918, exported: Beef, 104,710,813 lbs; pork, 149,934,593  lbs: butler, 6,783,466-lbs;'eggs, 3,861,389 dozen.  The demand for Canada's animal products.during Lhe re-construction period of Europe will be  as great as, or greater lhan, the demand during  th war, according to those in touch with the situation.  Canada will have a net war debt of about  $1,300,000,OCO for war expenditures alone by  March 31st next. Her exports of animal products  increased during the war from $53,400,000 in  1913-14 lo $172,700,000 last year.

Must Cut off Unpaid  ^Subscriptions  The Paper Controller of Canada  has given notice that a strict reg-    ,  ulation is about to be issued by lhe  Dominion Government to the effect  that���������������������������  Publishers of newspapers must ,  -       cease   sending   their   newspa- ~  pers     to     subscribers     three  months in arrears unless sub' , .  scriplions    are    definitely    re-  = .netved   and   all   arrears   fully .-.  ���������������������������  paid.  The reason for this regulation of  the Paper Controller is that it is the  practice of some, publishers to' send  thier. newspaper ��������������������������� "until ordered- .  stopped, , arid ��������������������������� this practice fre-:  quently means a failure to collect ,  anything for subscriptions infar-;  . rears, in which case there is a vir  tual waste of paper.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 2, 1919  oWAJNT TO GET INTO OKANAGAN  The United Farmers organization of Solsqua is  'petitioning the several boards of trade and town  councils in the Okanagan to induce them to cooperate with them"in a united request to the gov-  rnment for the opening of the. road into the Okanagan from Sicamous, llie completion of which  lias been promised several years. The petition  came before the local Farmers' Institute at its  annual meeting on Saturday.  This is a matter of suflicicnl importance to "demand the united effort of every town and dislrict  organization in the Valley,   if all would combine  on  this road, and not quit until thc work was  started and thc road completed, there is no question but  that  thc government would act.    Thc  great trouble seems lo bc the lack of unity in our  asking.   Two many things are asked for at once.  Every little locality has ils special requirement,  and there are so many of these and so few persons interested directly in each, thai the effort of  all is lost.    If all would combine on one thing  and press hard for it until the object is attained,  .each district would'be farther ahead in the long  run. One would help the other ancl thus all would  benefit.   This road into the Okanagan from Sicamous is  one of thc most important unfinished  pieces of work in the Interior.   There arc only, a  few miles of wagon road to bc built along Mara  Lake lo complete the connection, and yet we of  thc Okanaga'n*havc done little or nothing to get  the>road pul through.   It would bring thousands  of dollars into thc Valley every season from that  dislrict, and would again make the Okanagan thc  trade centre for a very rich and prosperous farming community to the north.  ARE THEY AGREED TO DISAGREE?  Unquestionably those diplomats of Europe and *  America are having difficulty in getting together!  on the question of a League of Nations.   In fact, |  after all these weeks,,of discussion outside of the;  Peace Conference, thcy seem to be farther apart j  now than when the preliminary discussions be- j  gan.   They Icll us in the dispatches that President'  Wilson has changed his ideas since going overseas,   and   that  now   there  is   no   difference of  opinion between the Allies; that all is harmony,  concord and understanding.    But contrast these  statements which are sent out by the news service, with an object, of course, with these words  of  President Wilson,  delivered  in  a  speech  at  Manchester, Dec.  30th,  and those following by  Premier   Clcmenceau   in   a   speech   before   the  Chamber of Deputies on the same day.  Addressing 5,000 workingmen in  Free Trade  l_F*  WE DON'T BELONG  We were asked the other day what church we  belong to, and \ye had to admit that we did not  Jknow. So far "as we are aware we belong to no  church. Like-most people, we used to think that  it was a man's belief concerning a dogma that  would fix his place in eternity. But we have discovered since that it only fixes Kis place in-society  Hall, President Wilson declared that the League  of Nations must bc a great covenant by which all  nations unite for the maintenance and triumph of  right.   This1 statement was greeted with wild applause.     "Thc United  States always  has ,fclt  it  must separate itself from European politics," the  President   continued.     "It  is    not  interested   in  European politics now, but is interested in a partnership of right. . We will join no combination  of powcr which is not a combination of all of.us;  we arc not interested in thc peace of Europe, but  in, thc peace of the world.   Thc theme now before  us is, 'What is lhc common interest?'   Heretofore  a partnership of interests has governed thc world.  This has broken down. With interests come jealousies.    Thcrc is only onc thing that can bind  people;   that  is   a   common   devotion   to   right.  There must bc no 'balance of power.'   The great  voice of humanity is abroad in the������������������world.   If any  statesman  resists   thc  compulsion  of   this  conscience he will deeply regret it.     We are obeying  no parties, but thc mandates of humanity."  Premier Clcmenceau, after reviewing France's  devastated condition, and recounting England's  promptitude in coming into the war, said: "There  is an old system of alliances called the-'balance of  power.' It seems to be condemned nowadays, but  if such a balance had preceded the war; if England, the United "States, France and Italy had  agreed, say, that whoever attacked one of them  attacked, the whole world, the war. would not  have occurred.

M. C. A.  A communication' recently received from the  Vancouver organizer'of thc Town and Country  work of the Y. M. C. A. answers the points raised  in an editorial in the Commoner a week or two  ago in relation to thc proposed organization of  the Valley towns under thc Red Triangle system.  "This movement docs not contemplate the  building up of another distinctive institution in  the communtiy. It is ralher a movement through  which it is possible for the towns and country  committees to secure a secretary" trained in boy  psychology, principles of leadership and social  organization. This secretary will reside in and  Avill give bis entire time to thc district (as a  county) in thc development and supervision of  work with boys and men. Thc movement docs  not come in to supplant any work with men and  boys which any institution such as the church,  school, etc., may already bc carrying on in the  community. Thc service of lhc secretary in any  event is available to such institutions as desire  the benefit of his special training and experience.  /Writing from Wellington, N.Z., under da t<*Hf  Nov.. ,28th.''Mr. Geo, $cil says: "A bcrat leaves here  today for San Francisco and will probably take  Canadian mail. It occurred to me that Canadian  papers would likely be mentioning the fact that  influenza was killing many people in New Zealand, and if so our friends would likely be pleased  to read in your paper that Mrs. Bell and I are  well now, both having fully recovered from the  dreaded illness. W. D. Bailey, of Winnipeg, also  the other member of our party, James Simpson,  of Toronto, both were down. Both arc now  about well. It's a real scourge.

One way to be good looking Is
to have a  good complexion.    It
Is very hard to convince the average woman that one-half the
trouble with complexions is that
they are  not clean.    The average woman's face Is not washed
often    enough     or     thoroughly
enough.   The best cosmetic ever
J advocated-'for'fair faces Is soap
and water, by no means an ordinary   piece  of  common  soap,
also   not   a    heavily   perfumed
soap, but one that Is absolutely
pure   and   bland.     The   clever
woman who understands the details of cleanliness uses a good
���������oap twice  a  day, with  a soft
flannel cloth and lukewarm water.    8he bathes  brow, cheeks,
chin and neck.    8he abundantly
lathers every part, rubs In the
creamy suds, then washes It off
In a clean water, lukewarm or
eold���������she must never use vmry
hot   water   on   her   face���������then
dries her skin well with a soft
towel.    By this means she expels from every pore the secretions nature sends out from within,, and removes all deposits ef
dust and  grime that In  a day
will settle on the face.    By giving her skin this dally attention
she can have a complexion that
for clearness and the retention
of a youthful appearance and ���������
good    healthy    glow,    can    be
brought about by n������ other meth������

In thc case of AnusV^ng  is no lack of material for the ollices  the matter will take care of itself,  derby, where aldermanic timber is not so plentiful, it may require some preliminary thinking  ancl planning in order lo get the best-suited men  for the positions���������������������������to act. In thc past, Enderby has  been exceedingly fortunate in its choice of men  as mayor and aldermen. The administration of  town affairs has been the best, and, on the whole,  splendid progress has been made. By the strictest  economy in-war years the town pulled through  nicely, "and now, on the eve of tlie reconstruction  period we find ourselves in good condition to go  ahead. The past year Aid. R. J. Coltart has filled  the oflice of mayor. Mr. Coltart's' regime has  the oflice of mayor in the absence of Mayor-elect  Dill, who removed to Vancouver shortly after  taking oflice. Mr. Coltart's administration has  been eminently satisfactory to all citizens. He,  although not a resident of the town, his dairy  farm being located a considerable distance from  thc city, was always prepared to act and serve in  town a flairs where his service .was required. Frequently within the past two years that he has  served on the council, Aid. Coltart has had to  sacrifice his own interests lo serve the city, particularly while acting mayor. Wc regret that Mr.  Coltart's property qualifications arc not suflicic.nl  to admit of his election as Mayor. In thc new  assessment which is being made of all property  within the city, the.value of his property within  the city may be raised, bul of lhi# there is little  likelihood. It is hoped, however, lhat Mr, Coltart  may bc induced, to stand again for the oflice .of  alderman, A]so that Mr. Nichol, Mr. Hartry and  Mr. Hawkins mt\y continue to act.  Thc question of mayor requires soihe thought  by Enderby ratepayers. When thc war broke out  Mr. F. H. Barnes was in thc office of mayor. He  was then Q. M.-Sgt. of the B. C. Horse, stationed at the Vernon training camp, and had to  give up all home-town.activities. He^hus since  returned to his Enderby home and is again ae-  INDICATES  DISTRICT'S   PROSPERITY  That llie farmers and residents of the Arm-  strong-Enderby Dislrict are prospering, and that  conditions*with them are "easy" financially, was  indicated by the character of the Christinas trade  of our merchants. Interviewed by the Commoner, Armstrong merchants, with possibly an  exception or two, all reported a"'very substantial  increase in Christmas trade oven that of any war  year. And the character of the purchases���������������������������substantial, quality goods���������������������������pointed to the fact that  conditions are generally much better than in past  years. Seemingly the worries of the local agriculturists are passed, or rapidly passing, and they  feel pretty good toward themselves, their market  and their industry. The buying, however), was  more generally of articles of service. Goods were  called ft>r this year that were seldom called for at  Christmas time in other seasons. Buyers wanted  good quality, and more of a select nature.  This condition is only following out what has  been noted for some months. There is more  thought being put into buying than heretofore-  indicating that the idea of economy is back of the  quality buying. JLocal merchants generally find  themselves in a stronger financial condition at the  close of 1918 than evCr before in the trouble  years. Thcy are in good condition for the opening of. the reconstruction period. Conditions in  both town and country point to the commencement of thc "big push" for a bigger and better  districl in 1919.

Il  also set the standard���������������������������created the atmosphere���������������������������  in wliich the President lived in thc hearts of all  England during liis few days' stay on British soil,  the guest of thc nation. The,King had just extended a most cordial welcome to thc President  md Mrs. Wilson, and had introduced Premier  Lloyd George and many othcr noted personages,  and then invited President Wilson to step into  thc^royal^carriage;    -^  "If you will excuse me, I'll jusl shake hands  wilh these men," said thc President. He walked  to a group of American officers and shook hands  wilh Ihem, then rejoined the King and entered  lhc carnage.  FINDLAY CHOKES  Walter Chcs.tcr Findlay, former prohibition  commissioner for lhc Province, came hack to  Vancouver from Seallle lasl week to answer a  charge of theft hrought by Allorncy-Gcncral  Fa iris in connection with the exposed illcgcd  crookedness in the handling of liquor hy the  commissioner under the Prohibition Acl, when.  it is reported, many carloads of whiskey came into the Province consigned to Mexico but never  were re-shipped. A royal commission is now silling at Vancouver to inquire into lhe alleged misdeeds of the commissioner. Findlav was lhe'first  witness called. He refused to"answer any question and was put in jail for contempt. On being  hailed out, lie was immediately ^arrested on anolher charge. . Il is reported lhc expressman who  is supposed lo havc hauled lhe package goods to  Findlay's warehouse, together wilh other possible  witnesses, arc nol to bc found by lhc police.  Pte. Gerald Neve writes from France: "I havc  received  several copies  of thc Okanagan   Commoner, at different places in France and Belgium.  Your amalgamation with  thc Armstrong press  I am" sure means bigger business, wilh a wider  outlook and a convincing belief in  the  future  prosperity of thc Northern Okanagan.    Thc dis:  trict is to be congratulated in having a weekly  paper that would do credit to a morc populous  centre.   At present we arc staying in thc old historical city of Mons.   Today has been very eventful.   The king of the Belgians visited here for thc  first time since it was retaken by the Canadians.  Tliis is thc largest Belgian city the Canadians captured.    Previous to ..this we were at Valencincs.  On armistice day thc Premier of France, Mon.  Poincare, came there, shook hands with a famous  Canadian generalr and congratulated the troops,  ���������������������������ind when the band played the Marseillais in the  "Place   d'Armee"    everyone   shouted  "Vive  la  France!"   It was the most impressive sight I ever  witnessed.    It was a glorious moment for the  Canadian boys, who have done so much to. help  liberate. their country from.the clutches of thc  Huns.   As soon as the armistice was signed, the  big flow of refugees began'.   All the roads were  blocked with thefti.   It was a most pathetic sight,  for the poorest of them would have oniy;a small  handcart, which represented alb that they saved  out of fthe wreckage of their homes. ^ Hut 'their  spirit was .grand!   All had small French flags flying.   After four years of slavery, and having lost  nearly  everything  they possessed,  these people  come back with, a triumphant look on their faces.

The  thought back of thc suggestion was, in effect, that  by thus getting together in annual conclave and  enjoying the day free from all cares, a better  inidci-standing^betw-cen^town^and^countr>T. could  be created, which would mean better business for  all. There arc many questions which arise between town and country that are never threshed  out to a conclusion and cause misunderstandings  to arise when only partly understood. At these  annual picnics, when everybody is in the spirit  of play, the get-together spirit between town and  country would find rapid growth.  WHO SHOUPP KNOW?

Thc food on the train from Halifax  ���������������������������ind the food service was all lhat could be desired  but the coaches were totally unfit for travel'at  this time of* year, especially in the West.

Some butter  makers have only a cow or two, and make so little  butter that it does not appear to them that they  can afford to have their butter wraps printed.

They are  printed with the words "Fresh Pairy Putter" but  do not bear the name of the maker. However,  these wrappers fill the requirements of the Jaw  governing this point, and can be bougjit in smalt  Suantities at the rate of 65c a hundred in 1-00 or  0 lots.

COMMON PARASITES OF SWINE  PRESIDENT WILSON'S VISIT TO ENGLAND  Swine are subject to several parasites, external  and internal. Of the first class, says a late builef  tin from the Dominion Experimental' Farm, the  most troublesome is Uie ordinary, hog-louse.  These insects are responsible for, much unthrift-  ness and poor gains; are an advertisement of the  unobservant eye or carelessness of the feeder, and  are intolerable in that unless the infestation is of  long standing, they are fairly easy of eradication.  First, a pig may be dipped or sprayed with _ny  good creolin or coal-tar disinfectant,, made up as  per directions accompanying, the preparation.  *Second, coal oil or keresene is used by some.  Though effective it has a blistering action and  should be avoided.  Third, Fuel oil is highly recommended. Experiments with it at Ottawa proved it efficient,  but slightly irritant and leaving the- hair of. the  pigs in a dirty, discolored condition.'  Fourth, Crude castor oil is non-irritant, soothing and quite destructive to lice.   Where procurable it forms possibly tho best application for this',,  purpose.   At present tlie price of castor oil is too  Mgh to permit of its use for such purposes. ���������������������������  Fifth, Paraffin oil (low grade) is now lised in  the herd of swine at the Central Experimental  Farm and has proved, non-irritant to the skin and  quite effective. It is cheap, easily procurable and  colorless. l\       ���������������������������       .. ���������������������������-���������������������������-    V. *      <  ' Apply disinfectant washes (creolin, etc.,) with  a brush,.-broom, spray-pump, or in case of thc  large herd, by the dipping method. Apply. oils  with/a cloth or, more Tonvehichtly still, by rising  a large oil can with a 'handle and long spout. File  a short section from off the spout to increase IHb  amount delivered.". Apply a stream of-oil over the  neck, shoulders and along back. The heat of the  body will cause the application to spread over the  body. A large number of hogs can" be treated  conveniently and quickly by such means. Repeat  the ^application after ten days to destroy the lice  or nits. If pigs are seen to be badly infected, a  thorough clean-up of the premises would be indicated, using a strong creolin~spray over all.

If there be  Englishmen who do not realize, how much this  issue transcends all- others, and how vital our  friendship with the United States is to all the  causes we have;at heart, we will, have,patience  with them, since our statesmen, American and  Pritish, have the po>vep to re-make ther destinies  of tlje Pnglish-speaking people and remold them  for the future as they might have been moulded  if the,.two nations h^d parted not in anger but  in amity and goodtfello^ship.

We are attempting to turn the, aspirations  of international jurisprudence, into a genuine  operative international law, and* to endow it with  sanctions like those of municipal law. lExcept  there is active good fellowship between England  and America, the thing simply cannot be done.  A league of nations is the. ideal of the English-  speaking world and the concurrence is necessary  if it is to become an operative reality. A league  of nations is only another form of the conception  of a concert of powers about which so typical an  English statesman as Gladstone used to wax eloquent. The concert of powers broke down because it was a concert of ambitious units without  any definite political constitution. The proposed  league of nations is thc old concert endowed, for  thc first time, wilh a conscience, with, a constitutional program, with thc rules laid down by law  and backed up by a physical" forcc, definitely  working for ends, not of ambition, but for thc  happiness and progress among the peoples.  "If President Wilson has a great popular following in Europe it.is because he has expressed  tliis ideal future for international relations with  the greatest clearness and force."  i^smalj,.

When the coasting season opened they bad a  ,*whale" of a time on their single coasting .sleds.  Pay and night they enjoyed the sport. Then due  pair of coasting-bobs made their appearance on  the hill; then another, "and another, until the  single-sled fellows were virtually put off the slide.  Those who did not have.bobs apparently laid the  matter before Santa Claus in earnest prayer.  Santa came through. Now thcrc are more bob-  coasters on the hill than,.they have boys to fill  them. (You know a bob-coaster, is as slow as a  tank if it hasn't a load.) And now all the fun has  gone out of coasting. But there is a remedy that  might be adopted which would bring cheer and  happiness to all. Why not get the old boys and  girls out and load 'cm on the bobs? An evening  or two a week on the hill wilh thc little fellows  would do a lot ol' us old boys and girls a world  of good. A good, hearty laugh; a tumble in thc  snow together, helter-skelter, hicklcty-picklcty,  might bruise us up somc, but il would clean out  the cobwebs.  letter sufcscrifte for  The Commoner  now while the  subscribing is goo4  The Mean Thing!

Our Directors appeal to you as a patron to  take advantage ol thc high prices "which must be paid  for butterfat during thc coming winter. Make preparations now for winter cream.  Our Directors also appeal to the small producer to continue patronage even though the amount  be small. A large number of small producers can  help out the output to a wonderful extent.
