THURSDAY, MARCH 6, 1919  W  nspt  Subscription. $2.00 per vear: 5c the codv  AGRICULTURAL COURSE  Instructive Lectures and Demonstrations Given by Professors of the University of B.  C. in Armstrong  J*  In  ll  i,  l!  i'e  ll  I *'  i  i  i'l-.i  v  -  1/  t  t  b  ft  id  Si  I'.' s*  l'-t  IV  The series of short course- lectures and demonstrations given  by the faculty of agriculture of  the University of British Columbia in the municipal hall, Armstrong, Feb. 25, 26, 27 and 28th,  although not as largely attended  by the farmers of the district as  might have becn hoped for,  proved a grand success. This  was without a doubt thc finest  set of short course lectures delivered in tlie Province, as they  were short in manuscript and  to tlie point, the lecturers answering questions during their  discourses.   ��������������������������� ,.  The original program was not  followed in its entirety but had  to be altered on* account0 of the  unavoidable absence of Mr.-  Lunn,.who was called to a convention in Ottawa.'Dean Klinck,  acting president of the University of British Columbia, took  Mr. Lunn*s place on Uje- program, and delivered a.very interesting address on "The University of British Columbia",  and another on Thursday on  "'Small Grains."  .Prof. McLean's addresses  on feeds and management ofthc daily herd were very instructive. It is impossible in the  short space at our disposal.to go  into these lectures in detail, but  all those who missed attending  lost a,rare chance to hear the  results of many years* -experience, tabulated ina. very, concise form. Prof; McLean gave a  very-practical and- interesting  demonstration on the judging of  horses and "cattle, "these demonstrations were given in the horse  barn on the agricultural ground.  Prof. Roving went very thoroughly into, preparation of 4be  soil, fertilteers, seeds and root*.  He bad a large quantity of different Hinds of seed com, in  Afferent states of development.  a|so specimens of different Kinds  qf barley, oats, wheat, vetches,  and grasses. These were, grown,  on tne University site at Point  Grey, and *w4<*Hn forming a  very interesting series of,-lecture*. v ;  Prof. Sadler went very thoroughly into the handling of mi!H  and cream, snowing now-to  handle each to the best advantage, and pointed out many pitfalls into w|nch the dairyman is  |i|ce|y to fall. He carried out  _many,-Jcsts, _sliowing_ bacterial,  contamination of milk, and  stated to get best results cream  in any creamery should he  graded in No. J|, 2 and 3 classes.  The farmers would he paid according to class. He stated this  was also of an educational value  as every farmer would strive to  have No. I grade of cream.  Jn Pean Khnck's lecture on  the University of R.C. he pointed  out the work of the university  from its inauguration up to the  present time, showing its enormous growth and the great  place it is taking in the repatriation of the returned soldiers, upward of three hundred taking  adva n tage of the short courses  in agriculture at the university!  He staled that, the university of  today is virtually interested not  only in the past, but things that  touch us here and now. It is the  university for all the people not  only in theory-'but in practice.  The local committee in charge  of the lectures were: L. W. Patten, G. H. Gamble, J. E. Britton  ���������������������������and W. E. Cbapple.  BOARD OF TRADE  Armstrong Citizens Endorse Resolution Against Ownership of  Land by Orientals  At the last meeting of the  Armstrong Board of Trade a resolution was received from the  B. C. Fruit Growers' Association  in the matter of the ownership  of land by Orientals in the Province, and requesting the Board  to endorse same. The importance of the problem was fully  discussed, all present being of  onc opinion in the matter, and  on motion of Messrs: Fraser and  Buckley the resolution was endorsed.        '  Rev. Mr. Stott and Mr. Renault moved a resolution asking  tlie Okanagan. Telephone,Company to give returns as to its  capital, running expenses, profits, etc. The resolution wais car-  ned.  "'A letter was read from the  Kelowna Auto and Good Roads  Association in the mailer of a  suggested plan for the improvement of tlie roads in the Okanagan district. It was moved by  Messrs. Hawkins ' and . Renault that this resolution be "endorsed.  It was moved by A. Buckley,  seconded by F. Fowler and  duly carried that the Board get  3,000 slips printed giving concisely the main facts of the district and that E. J. White, B. S.  Freeman and H. A. Fraser be  appointed a committee to draw  up the circular.  -  A discussion- followed on the  question of Orientals owning  and.renting land, and theimar:  keting of garden truck. -Ai-resp--  lution was moved by tt^Hai*-  kins and seconded: by F.

The convention was  attended by between 500 and  600 persons, and was a very  successful affair, delegates being present from the Shuswap JLake territory, and South  Thompson and Eagle River Valley; Interesting papers were  read and several resolutions  passed bearing on the repatriation of the returned men.  The convention endorsed the  suggestion that three returned  men be sent about the Province  with the land settlement board  so that tlie view of the veterans  might be secured on all lands it  was proposed to devote to soldier settlement; also a resolution asking the government' to  consider the advisability of devoting lands in the district of  which Salmon Arm is the centre, to soldier settlement.

Major Megraw, Inspector of  Indian Agencies for, R. C, visited Enderby last Thursday and  Friday, detailed by., the Indian  Department to look Into the  proposal submitted to the Department a few weeks ago by  Mayor Rarnes for the citizens of  Enderby urging the Government to purchase the Spallumcheen reserve from the Indians  and place tliis valuable land at  the disposal of returned soldirs.  Major Megraw met with, the  City Council and a representative gathering of the businessmen and citizens, in the City  Hall Thursday, evening. The  proposition was restated - by  Mayor Rarnes and others, and  in reply Major Megraw said the  proposal, was very closely r on  the lines he had repeatedly advocated in his reports to the De- j  partment���������������������������that too "much land'  was tied,-up in Indian reserves |  for -the ,good of tlie Indians  themselves as < well as the country; and that better results were  obtained- on smaller acreage  and -��������������������������� better cultivation. Major  Megraw said it was regretable  that so little thought were given  to the Indian-problem by the  great mass of people. -- The  magnitude of- the question and  what is .involved in dealing with  it is understoolivby - but- a very1  small percentage 'oi :the, people.  -He1 referred to .what Indians  are doing on smaller areas ��������������������������� of  land where the; soil is properly  tilied'/by; the - IndiahsF yHe told  of - the Lytton IndianiV selling  14 carloads ^6f white beans off  that reserve in the fall of 1917,  and received'sf$ci per pound for  every pound of beans sold.

He mentioned one  Indian wbo bad invested f20������������������-  000 in Victory Ponds, every dollar of wbicb was made by tbe  Indian iii J8 years of farming  big little patch of land- In every  Instance, be said, where the reserves were small for Jbe-num:  ber of Indians on tbem, be saw  better results than on the larger,  reserves where the population  wqs small;  The recognized proper acreage for an Indian family of live  is 80 acres, yet, in the Okanagan  VaUcy^thTTTnclian reserve acfe7  At the convention of United  Farmers at Kamloops recently,  it was stated that the organization hoped soon to be in a position to manufacture dynamite,  and tliis without government-  aid. It was expected that a  stumping powder factory would,  soon be erected, which would  solve the.powder problem.   p  The point, was also brought  out, that the provincial government had decided to adopt the  district representative idea advanced by the organization, and  would appoint the .representatives as rapidly as efficient men  could be found to fill the positions.  ' A strong resolution was  passed..urging the government  to complete the Mara to Revelstoke wagon road without further delay.  The government was also requested tp. raise the bounty on  coyotes to $5.  Tlie .convention also went on  record nisi opposed, to Orientals  being permitted.to own land in  the Province, or to rent it for  longer than a year. ���������������������������  The Dominion ..Government  ���������������������������vs������������������s asked to. electrify the pro������������������  posed railway to be built from  Kelowna to Kamloops.  The convention was asked-to  submit the question, of member^'  ship fee to a" plebiscite of the  members: before ^increasing   it  to more than $2.00.:VThe con-,  Istitution was amended so J as to  |������������������b^fa$&^thtM/^  faimJrf&.'districV^  'VA;' resolution'^ submitted vby  Kelowna ;was?endprsedy urging  the/government to transfer^ allS  financial aid from farmers'vln-i  stitutes to the United farmers.  - JtVwB������������������* urged tbat < a < Provin-.  cial Poard of Agriculture ^  formed,^ to. be composgd of the  executive bea^s .fvpin. eacb..,disr  tnct board ':- -7^ '"--"���������������������������'���������������������������>-r- ���������������������������"- ���������������������������- -  j Jhe convention favored Um*  adoption.of a |iura| Credits Act  similar to tbat in force in Manitoba.- ��������������������������� - - ���������������������������. ���������������������������; /- - -.-���������������������������--...  * A committee was^.appointed  to communicate, with Austrab������������������������������������  and New Zealand agricultural  autboriUes |o |eam if we wild  grass seeds of those countries  could not bs. purchased for seed-  ing purposes here in districts  suitable for sheep-raising.

And it was recognized that in  the Okanagan, the Indians are  making less use of their land  than on any .other reserve in thc  Province, inspitc of the fact  that thc land is of thc best class  but of doors.  Major   Megraw   said   it- was  unquestionably  the  best   thing  to  do  for  thc  Government   to  purchase the land from thc Indians at a favorable figure and j  place the money in a fund fori  use in developing new land on j  another  reserve..     In   this  wayj  thc Indians could bc made bet-1  tcr off than thcy ever havc bcen!  or ever can he with so much  land on their hands and nothing  t  in   thc  way  of  implements   or,  money with which to work the  land.  Statistics were given Major  Megraw concisely setting forth  lhe case submitted by thc meeting and these were incorporated  in liis report lo thc Department.  Enderby High School  On Monday, afternoon j Mr.  Walker gave a good practical  talk to thc students on the importance of confessing "l don't  know," in order to make real  progress in the pursuit of knowledge. Steady advancement  may be seriously handicapped  by assuming th*������������������t onc knows thc  facts about a matter when in  reality no bonafidc attempt has  hccn made to get ixl thc truth.  In thc world many fail completely because with but a little  knowledge they try to "bluff"  their way through. All true advancement is based on a thorough knowledge. Therefore in  seeking knowledge cultivate a  spirit of independence. Do not  he a leaner. Take seriously one's  own thoughts. Remember,  thoughts arc thc flowers of life.  Hold to the,good and true and  work in harmony with all.  Sunday dinner at the King  Edward, Endcrbv's popular  hotel.  <\.-  '.

Our Provincial Soldiers' Settlement policy���������������������������  that of getting control of vast acreages of land  far removed from established centres of population and of market facilities and offering this  land to returned men���������������������������has not met with acceptance on the part of the men looking for farm  lands. And, after more than a year, of land seeking by the Provincial Land Settlement Board, the  returned men are about as far ahead today as  they were when the Board started its work,, with  thousands of acres of land in the hands of tlie  Province which apparently the soldiers do not  want at any price.  Fortunately a scheme has been worked out by  the Dominion Veterans' Association in conjunction with the Ottawa government which is more  to the returned men's liking. Briefly it is this:  instead'of asking the returned men to go far  away from the market centres, the government  is to allow them to select any available piece of  farm land in an established farming community,  and the government will buy the land and set up  the man on it.  Lands in Ontario  Here is an advertisement published in an Ontario paper by the provincial settlement board  which shows clearly how the land is acquired:  "Farms Wanted for Soldier Settlers. Powers  are proposed to be granted at the approaching  session of Parliament to llie Soldier Settlement  Board of Canada to purchase lands to be resold  to qualified returned soldiers settling on land. In  the case of undeveloped lands the Board will be  granted powers of forced purchase at prices judicially determined.  "To enable soldiers to locate in any district in  Ontario that they wish, the Advisory Board for  the Province of Ontario desire to have filed with  them a full description and lowest cash prices on  a small number of select farms in each district  of the Province, available for purchase.  "The public are hereby informed that this land  is for returned soldiers, and no.tenders to sell arc  requested except for land of good quality and location, and reasonable value, making possible thc  success of thc soldier, as a farmer. The purchase  price in all cases will bc fixed by thc Board after  the land has becn inspected and valued.  "The, information received will bc treated as  confidential. No commission will bc charged or  paid. No offer to sell will be binding on the person offering unless a sale is effected, and no obligation will be on the Board to accept any offer.  "If application by a returned soldier be received for a farm listed with the Board, a valua-  tion for such farm may. be" at once made by the  Board, and if approved, negotiations may be entered into for the purchase and sale thereof. An  approved list is desired for each district of On-,  tano.  Pominion Government's plan  In the last issue of the official organ ofVthe  Dominion Government, the following synopsis of  the Ottawa plan is published:  "A statement from the Pepartment of the Interior says it is well Known that the Minister bas  had under preparation a bill for presentation to  Parliament at the coming session, enabling the  Soldier Settlement Roard to acquire land within  settlement districts, and as well to acquire stock  and implements for sale on specially favorable  terms to returned soldiers. Tbe granting of the  armistice and the consequent demobilization of  tlie C.R.p. is now rapidly adding to the demands  made upon the Roard, and the very great desirability of placing the Roard in a position to provide the soldiei*s with land sufficiently soon for  this season's operations has convinced the government that no time should be lost and that appropriate legislation sliould^ under the-War"  Measures Act, be put into effect at once to take  care of immediate demands. It is understood  that very early in the session Parliament will be  asked lo ratify thc action taken by the government by thc passage'of a bill practically along  thc same lines as thc Order in Council just enacted. This course has been urged upon the Minister by the Great War Veterans and thc Army  and Navy Veterans, who have all along laken a  keen interest in the project and are rendering the  Board every assistance in their power.  "The provisions of* the law just put into effect  arc briefly as follows: The Soldier Settlement  Board is invested with authority and provided  wilh funds for thc purchase of lands suitable for  immediate settlement by soldiers. They are also  empowered lo purchase stock, equipment and  building material for. sale to settlers. Sales are  lo be at cost price to the Board. It is thc intention of lhc Board that as far as possible the soldier will select his own land, the price, of course,  being subject to supervision by the Board. In  every case as well, before the assistance of the  Board in lhc purchase can be obtained, the soldier must pass a qualification council, at least  one of wliich is established in every Province,  wliich qualification council determines whether  or not thc applicant is'reasonably certain to succeed as a farmer. If the settler so qualifies and  the land selected is deemed such as will enable  him lo earn for himself a living thereon and to  '  pay for, the puchase is made through the assistance of the Board, the soldier being asked to pay  10 per cent of the purhasce price in cash. Not  more than $4,500 can be left outsanding and owing tlie Board at the time of sale. Provision is  however, made to cover cases of men who may  not be able to pay the 10 per cent, but who have  already had successful "farming experience in  Canada and are otherwise qualified or equipped  as to specially fit them as farmers. In these cases  the'whole or part of the 10 per cent may be dis-  pensd with, and consequently a balance may be  left owing to them of up to $5,000. The interest  on the balance owing is to be 5 per, cent and all  is to be repayable on the amortization plan of  twenty-five annual instalments. The Board is also  given authority to provide the soldiers with implements and stock up to the value of $2,000. It  will be seen that this amount is $500 above the  figure that was some time ago estimated as the  probable limit of advance for this purpose.  Should thc soldier already have implments and  stock, but no cash, the matter can bc adjusted  with the Board. The advance for implements  and stock is to be repayable in four annual instalments, commencing in the third year, there  being no interest charged for the first two years.  A further assistance may also be given the settler  by way of an advance up to $1,000 for permanent improvements, including the value of build<-  ing material supplied. Tliis advance is repayable  an the same terms as the balance owing on the  land. 0  "While the amounts owing the Settlement  Board remain unpaid thc land and goods supplied are fully protected from seizure to tlie prejudice of the Board, nor can sales or charges be  made without the Board's consent. Tlie crops  grown are protected from seizure to the extent  of obligations due the Board or to fall due within  a reasonable time after seizure. Every care is  taken that the soldier shall not be made the victim of aggrssivc or unscrupulous salesmanship  and that the assistance intended for thc soldier is  not by one means or thc other diverted lo the  enrichment of somebody else. It is felt that by  making these provisions absolutely clear in advance no injustice will be done."  Pyrex Transparent Oven  Dishes  ���������������������������are for every day use.

Wheat is tlie staff of life and two-dollar wheat ^  means "two-dollar- everything else. When wheat  gets back to normal���������������������������say $1.00 per bushel���������������������������the  prices of all other commodities will come down  likewise. Put the country will never come down  to normal conditions so long as Uie government  continues in the price-fixing business. We ought  to take the advice of a writer in Leslie's Weekly  to the national, govenrment across the line: "Let  the Government take its hands off of business���������������������������  stop its price fixing; let tlie wheat ond other food  markets take care of themselves and the cost of  living will come down with a thud and everybody  will be happier."

Tlie cities  were responsible for over $3,000,000 of this short  age.  The. total liabilities of the cities of the Province  at the end of 1917 were $83,261,797, with $23,-  664,309 for, the districts, or a grand total of almost $108,000,000, the major" portion of this, or  almost $95,000,000, being debenture liabilities.  Thc total taxable land assessments of the cities  stood a I $245,018,720, with $128,583,995 on improvements and $34,792,791 on land and improvements exempt from taxation.  Hie total taxable land assessments of the districts reached $124,458,684 with $48,841,520 on  improvements and $o,855,935 on exempted land  and improvements.  Tlie city population was given as 239,175 and  thc municipal district population at 126,575.

Ende THURSDAY, MARCH 6, 1919  OKANAGAN COMMONER  3 1  ENDERBY HIGH SCHOOL LECTURE  The address of Rev. Mr. Gretton on" "Bolshevism" at the High School on Thursday afternoon  Iras of vital and practical interest to all the pu-  lils. The speaker pointed out that tlie effect of  lie French Revolution was not really felt in Eng-  lind' at least, till the next generation. We see  Row a country, Russia, in "the throes of revolution, and it will he the children of today who  mil have to deal with ils results. Hence the necessity of studying carefully thc underlying prin-  iples of this social and economic upheaval. Tlie  lest of every movement is "How far is it true to  Jhe spirit of Christ?" The spirit of Christ was  [narked by a great sympathy wliich precedes understanding, and therefore we must cultivate  lympathy with men in tliis struggle lest we come  'jo hate all movements of reform.  Bolshevism was defined as extreme socialism  laming amongst other tilings to put an end to  {capitalism and class distinctions. The State must  Ibwrt all means of production and at Uie same  ! ime insure to all others economic security. It  \k a movement of Idealists and accepts the economic program of Tolstoy. There is much in the  Reaching of Christ that would seem to commend  rishevism.,.  But Bolshevism is morally,wrong (1) because  fof its unjustifiable methods of violence; (2) be-  [causc of its ignoring the rights of the individual;  [and (3) because of wrong methods by which it  Ihas been brought into existence it cannot produce  la spirit of Brotherhood.  \l A year ago Germany and Russia signed a peace  treaty. Russia threatened tliat if Germany played  [false she would fill all Germany with Bolshevism.  (Germany did play false and now Russia is, keep-  ping her vow. Bolshevism weakened Germany  land precipitated the armistice. If Russian B0I7  ishevism should succeed it would inflict a great  [moral wrong on the world, for Russia by repudiating hen just war debts would recover more  [rapidly than any other state. However Bolshevism is not a triumph of evil but an expression of  I men in despair. It may yet prove of much value  Ito mankind. We in this country need have no  particular fear of Bolshevism for two reasons:  First, we are too distrustful of new ideas to  jreadily grant them expression in our policies of  I government; ahd second, we will not allow the  I social, political or economic conditions to arise  I which must inevitably precede any wide-spread  [expression of Bolshevism.  fe "JIM" BOWES SfcLLS RANCH     ;  What Armstrong-Enderby Should Have  An Automobile and Good Roads Association 0  was organized at Salmon Arm at a recent gathering representing about forty automobile owners  in that district.

Generalities don't glitter any  more; oh the contrary, they lack lustre, and invite distrust. If you are not in a business that  quotes prices as the fundamental basis of your  appeal, you can talk service, integrity, facilities,  accommodation, etc. You can say something that  creates confidence Your business has a soul, a  spirit, an individuality. Dilate on one<point at a  time, and make it the means of approach lo a  closer, more definite understanding with possible  customers.

More Profit to flip  The Pominion law against the selling of  butter without the words "Pairy Putter, or  ^Creamery Putter"���������������������������as the case may be���������������������������prtnM  on the butter wrap, is a blessing in disguise to the  average farmer.  Jt is the duty of every butter maker lo "com-  R|y with the law in this matter. Some butler  takers have only a cow or two, and make so IMtle  butter that it docs not appear to them that Ihey  can afford to have their butter wraps printed.  They do not like the idea of having 5tm or 1000  butter wraps on band. To accommodate this  class of buttermakers, we have printed up  a quantity of. "Custom" Butter Wraps. They are  printed with Uie words "fresh Pairy Butter but  do not bear the name of the maker. However,  these wrappers fill the requirements of the Jaw  governing this point, and can be bought in small  Suantities at the rate of 65c a hundred in J 00 or  0 Jots.   Jf you do not require butterwraps in  larger lots, take these wraps in lesser quantities.  500, Single Order.    -    -    $3.75  1000   M    ���������������������������**���������������������������-���������������������������      -        4.75  Wbeo   rim    with   other orders, $3.50 and $4.50  THE WALKER PRESS  Enderby, B.C.

THURSDAY, MARCH 6, 1919  t.i>  A RECREATION HALL  What arc the citizens of Enderby doing to gel  established a recreation hall for the young people of the community?    Here we."have'a large,  -    well-equipped drill hall which stands idle like a  monument to sloth and inefficiency!   It was built  Jby   public   money   by   the ..militia'��������������������������� department-  months before the war broke, yet we doubt if it  bas bcen put to any good use either military or  otherwise more than a month or two in the several-years it has ben standing.    Apparently for,  no reason whatever the building-is not available  for physical training or, public utility in any way.  It stands to mock the very thing it was supposed  to be erected for.  Then thc town has a large school building with  ample accommodation for reading rooms, gymnasium, club room, etc, yet it, too, has stood  idle several years, the windows a target for stones  thrown by small boys.  Are there not enough of thc citizens of Enderby  public-spirited-enough to make a move to get  these idle buildings utilized What are we thinking about to sit supinely by and allow these public buildings to be of no service to the community when "so much might bc made of them if the  people were allowed to use them?  Bolh buildings were originally built for thc  training of the young men and women of the  community in the things tliat make for better citizenship, yet we have permitted so much red tape  to be wound around them that the buildings are  unavailable for -anything.  Isn't it about time we cut the red tape and make  J they editorially express deep concern at the problem thus created for the Allies. Various reports  concur in de--hiring the situation- extremely urgent. ReuLeiV report describes the position of  Germany niLT-e piecarious than it was last November. A news agency dispatch from Holland  reports that Chancellor Schicdemann had resigned. It also reports tliat oilier revolutionary  movements'in Germany are imminent. Strikers  have declared that they will encircle Weimar and  cut it off as far as possible���������������������������*from the rest of Gcrmanv.    "   ���������������������������  *** '(.'������������������������������������������������������  "Discontent is growing, the people are hungry  and dispirited, and the government is unable to  improve material conditions," Reuter's dispatch  says, and continues: "Far-sighted' and well-informed men are pessimistic and see at present  ominous signs which show a tendency toward anarchy."  Tlie Telegraph, which printed two long reports  this'week from a correspondent who is viewing  the situation in Germany, prints another, corroborating tlie worst features of the reports of  the hardships among the German people. The  report contends that if the Aliics do not act immediately there will bc no Germany to negotiate  with, because anarchy will take the place of thc  government.

The  grocer today sells flour, butter, sugar and various  other necessaJries of "life-for hearty double prewar prices; boots and shoes arc doubled in'price  and are of a vastly inferior quality; the hardware  man sells.hardware, at a 75% or 100% increase;  Uie baker sell tlie old-time 5-cent loaf of bread for  K5 cents, and the farmer gets 92.30 a bushel for  wheat that used to sell for less than a dollar.  Every other.business or industry shows a like increase in cost of operation.   Why not pass a resolution asking our grocers^ our boot and shoe- men,  our clothiers, our hardware men; thc "butcher,  baker and candlestick makers" all to show their  books?. Why not ask every member of thc Board  of Trade to make a showing of his capital investment, business expenses and profits?

Some piece of news is born every,  minute in any community and if the0 newspaper  knew of this news and considered it the proper  kind of news for publication, it would be published.   Many times the reader of the newspaper  will glance tlirough the pages and then say "There  is nothing in tlie paper today," and yet that very  individual knew of certain happenings,  maybe  trivial in their nature, that if he had told thc  editor 'regarding them would have materially increased the news feature of th paper.   It is true  that the average individual does not appreciate  what is. news and in consequence is unable to  give any news  to a  newspaper and  therefore  keeps his lips sealed when asked if he knows any  n^Ys;   fhai is *he ra^ in every village, town or  city ip British Columbia, or in any other portion  of the civilized world.

WHAT IS BOLSHEVISM?  DANGER OF DRIFTING NOW SEEN  I/ii  n a cable to thn Vancouver Province Dr. E. J.  Ion says:    The peace conference i.. r������������������wakening  to  the necessity of  mov'-ng forward ���������������������������w.d  to the  danger of further drilling, but is still uncertain  what sails to hoist on the voyage eastwaid.   The  Entente leaders once proclaimed the impossibility  of establishing a durable peace or a solid league of  nations so long as Russia continued a prey of anarchy, yet their concerted effort to rescue thc  great  Slav people from  the Serbonian bog of  chaos constituted an  almost irremediable blunder, hardening the Slavonian against Entente influences. The invitation to tlie Bolshevists, whom  thc Allied leaders had stigmatized as brigands  and  assassins,  destroyed  tlie  prestige  of  these  powers, leaving the problem morc acute.    Since  then  thc resourcefulness of politicians has devised no fresh expedient, yet time presses and  actictt, effective or feeble, must be shortly taken.  A ^London dispatch tells somc of tlie outward  signs) of these dangers only now realized.    Several gtstmdosL: newspapers feature articles on the  internal demobilization of Germany and the dangerous growth of Bolshevism owing to the lack  of food and the increase in unemployment, and  -Since the word Bolshevism was coined it has  stood fcr.cvcrylhing bad in thc category of crime.  Yet Bolshevism, when understood, is not anything like what it has been painted. So much  has been published about thc Bolshevists, and so  much crime, justly or unjustly, has been laid  at the door of Bolshevism, that onc reads with  surprise thc tenets of thc Bolshevist.constitution.  Merc it is:  1. The Russian Republic is a free Socialist  Society of thc working population of Russia, who  arc uniled in town and village Soviets.  2. The Soviets of those provinces which, by  thc national customs and composition, belong together will be -united in autonomous provincial  unions (Obastnie), at the head..of which stand  thc provincial congresses of Soviets and (in the  period between tlie- Congresses) the Ail-Russian  Central Executive 'Committee.'" .V e  3. The right of choosing and beirig chosen as  Deputies for the Soviets shall be exercised by the  following citizens of both sexes who have attained their eighteenth year on the day of the  election: !  (a)    All who can  earn their own hVing by  productive work or work of public importance  and arc mmbcrs of the trade unions, such.as:  (i)    Workers   and  employees   of all kinds  engaged in industry, trade and agriculture.  (ii)     Peasants   and   Cossacks   who  land and employ no hired labor.  (iii)    Employees and workers in Soviet in  stitutions.  Soldiers of thc Soviet army and fleet.

BUY WAR SAVINGS  STAMPS  Mr. Campbell Sweeny, Provincial Chairman of  the British Columbia Division, National War Savings Committee, recently said:  'The war, is over, and it might be thought patriotic effort in thc,way of saving and lending to  the Government is no longer necessary, but this  is not the case for the following reasons: While  actual fighting has stopped, an army of occupation will have to be kept in the enemy country  for some time, and Canada must furnish its  quota of tliis army. The payment and provision  for our army during thc course of demobilization  has also to be provided for, and, above all. money  must be found to properly pension our soldiers,  and provide for the dependents of those who have  made thc great sacrifice for our protection and  for the preservation of the freedom of the world.  "Further, much money will be required for the  development of our natural resources, by which  means alone can wc pay off the heavy national  debt the. war has imposed upon us, and for all  these purposes we must finance ourselves, for  thc rest of thc world wants what money it has for  its, own uses. Tlie. success of the Victory Loans  has proved conclusively that Canada can finance  herself if she determines to do so, and what is  asked of her now is to supplement the magnificent bursts of patriotism wliich have produced  over $1,000,000,000 in two years by persistent  economy, and so steadily kept the country's coffers filled and the country's soldiers fed, and the  country's industries flourishing."  nw  RESULT OF EXPERIENCE  c The editor of a certain magazine had to return  to a would-be contributor-���������������������������a lady���������������������������a story she  had submitted which was not atall suitable.. By  return post he was the recipient :of an indignant  letter from the aggrieved, disappointed author.  She had always suspected, she wrote, that editors  neglected their duties; now she was sure of it,, for  before submitting her manuscript she had, slightly pasted together three or four."of. the inner  pages. When it was returned to her it was in the  same condition. Obviously, then, her story had  not been read. "Dear madam," replied the editor,  "at breakfast when f find an egg is bad f do not  have to eat the whole of it in order to make sure!"  If the etlitor is paid promptly and his pecket  book kept plethoric by prompt-paying patronst be  puts his pen to bis paper in peace; fie paints hw  pictures of passing events in more pleasing colors  und the perusal of his paper is a pleasure to the  people.

Sharpe  Wholesale and Retail Butcher  Enderby  MUST DEVELOP THRIFT  Laurier, pur greatest and our best, has at last  found rest. All his long life he worked ceaselessly, tirelessly for his felloW Canadians. His life  and his deeds can better now be judged and accorded greater appreciation. Was it not always  so with great men?  What was his reward for his work on our behalf? The knowledge of duty done and the realization of the love of his countrymen. His eyes  shone on the occasion of his last visit to Vancouver when, in addressing an audience in the Or-  pheum Theatre, he said: "This is indeed a love  feast.^  And if the soul of Laurier could look .down on  the multitude who flocked to Ottawa to pay one  last tribute to the noble corpse, he would have  beheld an even greater "love feast."  Laurier in the flesh has passed away, but his  spirit will be with us always. His greatest hope  in life, and the one that will never die, was that  there might be no English-Canadians, no French-  Canadians, no Irish-Canadians, no Scotch-Canadians���������������������������just Canadians! Internal unity of Canada, the basis of her future���������������������������that was the goal of  Laurier.  Now may his wish and his will be done. How  much longer shall wc lessen ourselves with racial  differencs, jealousies, narrow-mindedness and  non-religious bigotry? Let us forget the puny  differences of the past which are responsible for  all our present evils, and standing in the illumination of his character, realize,.that one and all of  us arc���������������������������just Canadians, thank God���������������������������Farm and  Home.  Hon. John. Oliver, Premier of British Columbia, in a recent statement heartily endorsed the  War Savings and Thrift Stamp movement.  Premier Oliver said: Respecting the necessity  of inculcating in the minds of our people the need  of industry and saving, I would say that, according to the best information thai I can obtain, the  Dominion of Canada as well as the different provinces and municipalities, to say nothing of individuals, have a very large accumulation of indebtedness, a very large proportion of which is  owing to creditors outside of Canada.  "In addition to these debts for moneys borrowed, wre have the fact that many of our industrial establishments, and also large areas of our  agricultural lands, fisheries, timber and mines  are controlled by foreign capitalists; the payment  of interest on borrowed money, as well eas tbe  profits derived from the exploitation of our natural wealth, constitute an immense drain upon  the wealth produced in Canada.  "There is only one way wliich occurs to me  lhat this condition of affairs can be alleviated or  remedied, and that is by thc inculcation of thrift  into the minds of our people to such an extent  that monies saved shall be re-invested in our own  country.  "I feel sure that, unless thc people of Canada  pay more attention to saving a substantial portion  ')f the wealth which they produce for re-investment in productive enterprises within Canada,  tbe time will surely come when Canada will be  impoverished instead of being what Nature evidently, intended, a wealthy-Canada inhabited by  a contented and prosperous people."  WINTER EGG PRODUCTION  The possibilities for making a good profit from  winter eggs were never better than they are at the  present time; although many poultrymen have  reduced their poultry activities during the past  year, thinking that at the present high price of  feeds, profits would be impossible. However, the  profit or loss from the poultry business does not  depend upon feed alone. The successful poultry-  man must pay the strictest attention to all the  essentials of care, feeding and management, if he  is to make his work profitable. Even the slightest  negligence on thc part of the poultryman in any  of these essentials may mean the loss of many  eggs. A high-producing hen is like a very delicate machine, easily put out of repair. Anything  that interferes with the health of the flock for  even,a day may cause a high-producing flock to  become non-producers for from two to three  weeks or longer. ', Remember, a hen lays an  eggs or docsnH, never a half. All hens or pullets  should be efficient transformers of raw materials  into a finished product.:: This transformation, to  be the most.profitable,,should' take .place when  the finished. product (eggs) is at its maximum,  which is during;the-winter-months..'-All hens or  pullets tend to consume a similar amount of  food, regardless of whether they are poo? lor gooxj  winter layers. It is during the .winter months of  November*, peoemberl, January, .February, ami  ^jarcb ;when the ponltrymah has 'to supply bis  flock withal.of the fallowing: grain, mash, veg-  e table ap4 animal fooA, grtt, shell ami charcoal,  that, liis expanses are the heaviest; therefore if,  by careful and judicious feedjng ari<l management, be can bave his floclc producing enough  eggs to defray expenses, or to give him a small  profit, he is bourn! to be more successful than lhe  poultryman who has to pay the winter's boarcl of  Ins flock from his spring egg production.  purihg the months of November, Pecemher  and January, the egg production af the Experimental Station, Charlottetown, from a pen of 50  White Leghorn pullets was November }59, Pecemher 632, January 762, making a total of J.544  eggs. .  from these records it will be seen that the  W[hite-f5(eghopn-puilets-average(1^348,^Jl246_and  J 5.24 eggs for the months of November, Pecemher an4 January respectively.  Tlie cost of feed consumed} was: 6561b whole  grain, $21.84; 3281b mash, $9.47; 381b shell, 70c;  15lb grit, 27c; 22 V2lb beef scrap, $1.35; 5001b  mangels, $2.50; making a total cost for feed of  $3643.  The value of the J28 J-3 dozen eggs at 55c was  $70.77; deducting the cost of, feed $3643 left a  profit over cost of feed of for the 50 pullets for  three months of $34.64.  Jt will be seen from thc statement above that  these pullets not only paid for their feed during  the time specified, but yielded a net profit of 69c  per bird.  Hell fori Rent  Rev. Billy Sunday, on learning of ratification  by thirty-eight states of federal prohibition  amendment, said: "The i-ain of tears is.over. The  slums will soon be a memory; we-will turn our  prisons into factories, our jails into storehouses  and corn cribs; men will walk upright. Now women will smile, children will laugh. \ Hell will be  for rent."  Saskatchewan produced 117,921,300 bushels of  wheat in 1917, grown on 8,273,250 acres, according to an estimate made by the Dominion Bureau  of Statistics. , .������������������    :v  RETAILER AND MAIL ORDER HOUSE  W: J. Sheppard, of Holiday, Sheppard, Ltd.,  Wholesale and General Merchandisers, Winnipeg,  writes in Better Business as follows:  "A great deal of criticism has been passed upon  the retail dealer, some favorable but most of it  unfavorable, and a great deal of it unjust on his  efforts to satisfy his trade as to both quality and  price in competition with the retail mail order  house. If the retailers as a whole could compel  their customers to pay cash in advance for their  goods enabling them in this way to take advantage of the two or five per cent cash discount per  annum offered by many jobbers and manufacturers for prepayment of their bills, they would be  playing the game as others play it; but unfortunately the average farmer regards the retailer in  his home town as one upon whom he can lean  when accommodation is required and who is expected to take his butter and eggs off his hands at  the market price jn exchange for goods,-and at  the sanie^time���������������������������meet������������������the price of his cash competitor. This condition exists and has existed for  years, and in addition to this burden the retailer  is expected to carry, the farmer from crop fo crop  and in many instances with the result that he has  to seek accommodation from his jobber in the  way of dating. Even if we admit for the sake of  argument that a great many men clrift Into the  retail business who have not either the education  or ability to properly conduct a store, a glance at  the comparative failures in tfte provinces of Quebec and Ontario,as compared with those in tbe=  West as given hy Bradstreets would tend to show  that Western Canada has a more competent class  of merchants, if we are to judge by the percentage  of failures as compared with the population. This  in spite of the fact that the most agressive mail  order houses in Canada catalogue every farmer  and not only the farmer but every prospective  purchases, or would-be purchaser. l������������������ut the greatest, injustice which the retailr has to suffer is  from the fact that practically every manufacturer  selling to the jobber reserves the right to sell these  retail mail order houses at the same price that  they sell the jobber. Why they should be permittee! Jo.._____.fish of one retailer and flesh of  the other is the fault of the jobbers of Canada.  Small Town Eliminated  Were the retail mail order houses called upon  to support every public enterprise in all the towns  in which they sell goods as all the retailers do, and  are expected to, a considerable bole would be  made in their profits, and the more the farmer  and local community patronize the retail mail  order houses just by that much do they retard  the building up of their home town, and if thc  present expansion in this way of trading is kept  up, it is not hard to vision that tliis short-sighted  policy will evntually result in the practical elimination of the small town, and to follow up the  business of farming will be the next thing to becoming a hermit.  "If the farmers of the west could bc induced to  see that they arc clcliberatcly for the sake in many  instances of a very small difference in price, and  in many cases none whatever, destroying the advance in price of their greatest asset, namely, their  farm lands, tbe retail mail order business w.ould  die a natural death or at least only to procure  from them such commodities as thcy cannot get  the volume of business done by thc country merchant which would naturally result from this action on the part of the farming community, tlie  overhead charges of conducting a store would hc  more in proportion and with the cost of selling  goods materially reduced, a closer pricing of merchandise would naturally follow."
