THURSDAY, JANUARY 23, 1919  Subscription. $2.00 Der vear: 5c the codv  LACK OF INTEREST OF CITIZENS  REGRET OF MAYOR WRIGHT  At the last meeting of the  1918 Armstrong City Council,  held on Monday, Jan. 20th,  Mayor Wright expressed his regret at losing the services of the  two retiring aldermen, who, for  reasons of their own, had decided not to seek,re-election.  Aid. Fraser had heen on thc  Council since the incorporation  oT the city, and during that time  had always done his hest for  ihe interest of the city, and he,  the Mayor, would miss his, able  support very much. Aid. Creed  had been with them for four  years and had proved himself  a willing and able councillor,  and he regretted losing his services on thc corporation.    .  Aid. Fraser and. Creed having  suitably responded, the old  council adjourned sine die.  Following the adjournment  of lhc old council, that of 1919  took their scats. The returning  officer reported thc election by  acclamation of the following:  Mayor, J. M. Wright; Aldermen, Thos. Halladay, Wm.  Gregory, J. Z. Parks, Jos.Thom-  son, Alex Adair; School Trustee  Alex Adair; Police Commiss-  sioncr, H. C. Armstrong.  ��������������������������� The Mayor and Aldermen  having taken thc declaration of  office, the meeting was called- to  order. Mayor Wright welcomed  the new.members to the council  saying that' there were a few  matters which . would require1  their very careful consideration  duri ng the coming year, the principal one being that1 of the action  of thc G .N. R. Company vs."the  City of Armstrong. He said it  ���������������������������was a matter of great regret to  him that Uic tax payers of the  city took so little interest in the  affairs of the city that they  could not attend the annual  meeting, held on . nominalion  day, for the purpose of discussing questions of importance  such as this. However,, the  council had taken no step without very careful consideration  and imdej* the hest advice Qh-  tainahte, and he hoped success  woukT eventually crown ttieir  efforts. There were other mutters, such as the assessment of  the city properties, the road and  statute labor, the Milk licence  J3yjaw, the hest use to he made  of the drill hall, the electric  light, and_thg appointment of a  Also from the Imperial Oil  company asking to be allowed  to quote for lubricating oil fdr  the Diesel engine.  The Island Automobile Association wrote asking the council to pass a resolution of approval of the proposed Canadian Highway Act. Such a  resolution was passed.  On motion of Aid. Gregory  and Aid. Halladay, the Mayor,.  Aid. Adair and Aid. Thomson  were appointed to represent thc  city on the Returned Soldiers'  committee.  It was decided that for the  convenience of being able to  call up the chairman of thc electric light committee, the city  would have a telephone placed  in the residence of Aid. Parks.  Tlie accounts passed by the  finance committee were ordered  paid.  Armstrong Red Cross Report  December,, 1918  Collections���������������������������  Mrs. S. E.

The quota asked for the Red  Cross in the recent drive was  $1,175. Up to date there is $1,-  540.24 in cold cash to thc credit  of thc soliciting committee with  a few straggling amounts still  to come.  The principal feature of the  campaign was the lack of organization. Thc Victory Loan  committee was fed up on soliciting, ancl as a forlorn hope the  Rev. W. Stott took over the  management ofthc drive. New  blood was enlisted in the person  of A. Buckley and. W. A. Cuthbert; and no mistake was made  in their selection, as thc results  show. No canvass was made  outside the town, the Municipal  Council instead voting a lump  sum of $500. The committee  was further encouraged by the  receipt of $209.60 from the Victory Loan committee, a sum  which was to have gone to the  Comfort Club and Prisoners of  War, but since there is no further, call for these objects, the  Red.Cross received the amount  stated.  An appeal was made Tor voluntary contributions to bc handed in at Abbott's drug store.  Approximately $400 was received in this way from 112  contributors. The town was  then '7. canvassed,. where -voluntary contributions had not been  received, and '$309.60 was. collected. -       j  Tn the evaporator, $79 was  collected by Mr. Watson.' Other  amounts \yere received, \vhicji  hrought the total of 'personal  contributions to $830.64. Almost $200 of this amount came  from friends in the country.

It is a spirit of  which Armstrong may well be  proud.  WORK FOR BEEKEEPERS  Preparatory Work that Should  be Done in the Winter for  Next Year's Activities.

The Mara  Red Cross ladies say they "were  pleased to sec so many of our  Grindrod and Enderby friends."  The sum of $18 was realized,  and this, together with other  funds and a donation from Mr.  Wm. Owen of $27.75, brought  Mara's donation to the Red  Cross drive to $50.  "We should like to thank Mr.  Bennett," writes the secretary,  "for his valuable assistance with  the dance. A splendid program  of music was provided by Mr. C.  Rosoman, Mr. Geo. Wells and  Mr. O.

Increased production of bye stock is of vital importance to Canada and her future and is the  most valuable reconstruction worjc that can he  done.  Canada's rank as a cattle producer may he  judged when it is known that the Pominion has  only six animals to the hundred acres in farms  against 29 fop Holland, 25 for Denmark, }6 for  Germany, Jl6 for Great Britain, 12 for France,  10 for Italy, 8 each for Australia and the United  States. -   ; (-.

Export   Position  deemed   -wcll-nigl  live years tigo  S<������������������������������������������������������>  The war stimulated thc export trade in Canadian live  stock products to a degree  nigh .impossible  Exports "of beef  increased 0795/V of bacon and  pork products 571%. Total exports of live slock products in  the fiscal year ending March 31,  1918, were valued a I $172,743,-  081 as compared to $53,349,119  in 1914.  Canada has. the" opportunity  of holding tliis trade and increasing it, for* our meat products won.a splendid reputation  in Europe during the war, and  Canada is in the position of tbe  favored nation.  The   price  of  feed  lias  becn  price of finished animals has  also been high. /The price may  decline gradually, but thc price  of* feed will decline also, and  thc percentage of profit lo the  farmer should thus remain  about the same. Indeed, if the  cost of feed declines first, thc  profit to the farmer will be increased..  i.  Mr. Herbert Hoover, chief of  the United Stales food administration, who is at present in  Europe investigating conditions  at first hand, cables as follows:  "Every pound of pork products we can export before next  July Europe will need, and as  soon as the initial chaos of the  sudden economic change from  war to armistice can be overcome there will bc great over-  demands."  Authorities say that this demand in the case of beef, even  more lhan pork, will bc abnormal for many years owing to  the fact that Europe is estimated to be short of over 115,-  000.000 head of live stock, of  which 28,000,000 represent cattle irreplaceable in less than  five vears.  , Potato Market Looking Up  While Ave produced this year  more than a million bushels of  potatoes over and above what  will be consumed in British Columbia, it is gratifying to know  on the assurance of the Coast  Markets and Prairie Markets  Commissioners that all the surplus potatoes have practically  left the growers' hands and tbe  amount iii. the hands of jobbers  is less lhan at this time last year  Latest reports from Alberta indicate a rising market.

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,    and    this    practice    frequently means a  failure to collect  -  anything  for' subscriptions   in   arrears, in which case there is a vir- --w-i  ^tual waste of paper.

THURSDAY, JANUARY. 23, 1.919  TOO MUCH PATERNALISM  "Why don't"-the Government do something?"  This is heard on all sides, and on all occasions,  from the question of building railroads  to  that  of keeping down" the price on a hag of. roasted  peanuts.    It has become  the most  tiresome of  topics���������������������������yet is it not .-always' present?    Of course,  our old-time politicians are. responsible for tliis  continual cry for pap.   Thcy promised anything  at election time, and got what they could J after  being elected.   And we still cling to the old idea  of party pull.   The government this, the government that!   It seems impossible to get away from  it.' If communities would get together; work together; hold fast, and bc loyal to themselves and  back up the men who are working in their midst  in thc  public  interest,   they   would   accomplish  more, and in half thc time.   In this connection a  thought is given in thc January number of the  Agricultural Journal tliat is worth remembering:  "It is the spirit of the age (and wrongfully, wc  believe), to look for practically all guidance to the  governments.   We are your servants, you arc our  'masters; the government is your establishment.  The servant looks for guidance and counsel to his  master.   When lie sees portrayed in his master's  character qualities of a high order, a good scr-  wliich will not let them, do so. It is quite different in the United States where the banking of the  j country is net eoniined lo half a dozen institutions all under cm: head', and where the banks  have to rustle Vr business nnd get it by co-operating with the community in developing the industries that make business for them���������������������������ancl for  all. Following tliis practice, twenty-five of the  leading banks of the United States have established their own dislrict agricullural agent with a  well-equipped agricultural department in each  district covered. Why can't we have such practical co-operation as this in the agricultural districts of Canada? V  I  WITH REVERENT HANDS  trust, and attends with greater care to his mas  ters possessions. Thc rural and civic com ni unities havc a task before them which will call for  leaders who, despite all manner of difficulties,  Avill refuse to bc discouraged. Farmers who have  held themselves aloof from public works and are  living out their lives to all intent within thc  boundaries of the farm, will come out and provide or support leaders. There is a mountain of  hidden strength among tlie farmers of Rritish  Columbia which, if properly used, will revolutionize existing condtions."  Walt Mason, the well-known American writer  and editor of the Emporia Gazette, gives us something to think about on the country newspaper.  Here it is: "Our little country papers seem drab  6nd  miserably provincial   to  strangers,  yet  we |  read them, read in their lines the sweet intimate  story of life.   When the girl at the glove counter  marries the boy iii the wholesale house the news  of their wedding is good for a forty-line wedding  notice, and thc forty lines in the country paper  give them self-respect.   When in due course we  know that their baby is a 12-pounder named Grove r, or Theodore, or Woodrow, we have that  neighborly feeling that breeds  the real democracy.    When we read of death in that homc we  can mourn.   When wc sec them moving upward  in the world, into a firm and out toward the country club neighborhood, we can rejoice with those  that rejoice.   Therefore, men and .brethren, when  you are riding tlirough this vale of tears on the  California Limited, and by choice pick  up  the  little  country  newspaper  with  its  meagre  tele-  Itock Taking Sale o  Broken, Also Seasonal!! yeoos  Which Must be Cleared Out  Before the  1st  of February  Dozens of tables during the last few days of January will 'dispose of many  lines at almost sacrifice prices  We cannot mentieu these lines here,'.they are so varied and  the  price   will  not keep on sale any length7 of time.

Paint with B-H "ENGLISH*'  PAINT this spring���������������������������end your house is protected for years, where a coat  of ordinary paint will last but a few months.  The difference lies in the above formula basis. What other paint is ao  correct in this respect that its makers guarantee it? What paint can a  dealer furnish you that has anything like the quantity of white lead in  it that has B-H "English" ?  This was the formula when lead wa? lower in price���������������������������this is the formula  still; even though lead is extremely high in price. It HAS to be thc B-H  formula; because the guarantee that calls for it, is printed right on the  B-H cans. We could not cheapen B-H "English" Paint even if we wanted  to.

This is due, no doubt, partly.to o\ir fine climate and unexcelled  water supplv; and also, as far as it. goes, to our excellent drainage  svstcm, a verv necessary piece of which has been completed this year;  but also, to a'large extent, tb the renunciation, at the request of the  Council bv the citizens, of nearly all unnecessary1 public gatherings,  through'which diseases of ah infectious or contagious nature are so  surely disseminated.  We did not consider it necessary to close our schools, as we had  no cases among our teachers or pupils, and thought the children were  ���������������������������it least no more liable to infection in our large, modern, well-lighted  i.ir1 well-ventilated school building than they would be congregating  o., ihe streets.

F. p. Mccnse No. 9-3409  you haven't tried our hams  and  bacon ypu have   not had  the best  Geo. R. Sharpe  Wholesale and Retail Butcher  Enderby  F. M. Chapman, editor of thc Farmer's Magazine, in an article in thc Financial Post, says, thc  value of Canada's field crops for 1918 will total  $1,396,000,000, an increase over 1917 of sonic  $200,000,000. Thus .agriculture stands pre-eminent in the wealth of-Canada. Jin 1917 wc passed  lhe billion mark in values of field products. It  was fell lhat because of the short wheat crop 1918  would fall below thc high levels of the preceding  year. It is gratifying, therefore, to find from an  examination of thc returns that thc 1917 lead has  been beaten by over $250,000,000.  This writer says values of field crops- in the  majoritybf cases have been higher than in 1917.  In thc fodder crops we find a large yield of hay  and clovers with values fully 50 per cent, in excess of the/previews' year. -Canada had an immense crop of oats of first-class quality, so with  barley, which has-been showing a recent decline  in price but which decline is lively, to he arrested  soon by the swing of this grain to the ever-open  channels of liye-stocjc feed, flags remain high  and hwjey is Canada's standard hog feed. ^ Tlie  livestock prospects outside Canada, and the efforts heing made to extend, markets are recent  evidence, heing Premier florden's offer to finance  Boumania's purchase of food, alt hold out promises of nfture prosperity along the livestock route.  WAY JJSJ3 FQflCE  The intention to forcihJy suppress the SinnNf em  organization in Jre|ahd is attributed to the flritish  government in certain quarters there, according  to a Puhlin dispatch to the London MaiJ. The  correspondent adds: "Soher-minded, responsible  men ta|ce a very gloomy view of the situation, it  is feared that the government is about to emharjc  on a new campaign of repression 'which may in-  clude=the^forcihJe=suppression^df^the^Sinn^Fein7  with such results as are to be expected when the  government takes up armed conflict with 75 per  cent of the population."  The writer traces this fear to the Tory success^ in the recent elections in England, which,  he says, arc.regarded as having given the "cocr-  cionists" a predominating influence in the state  and have created the belief that Ulster will bc  supreme in determining British treatment of  Irish affairs.  The world's peace' congress, opened formally  tliis week in Paris.   Prior to the. opening the pro-  portonatc representation of small nations "at the  peace conference was removed in order to make  the congress less unwieldy.    Under the original  scheme proposed by France, dcleg ites were to be  apportioned according to the importance of the  role their nations played in the war.    This has  been changed so the various powers will be represented  according  to  the importance  of  their  peace interests.   This will not affect the five great  nations���������������������������Great Britain, France, Italy, Japan and  the United States���������������������������each of which will retain five  delegates.    The other nations will vary between  one and three representatives, with a tendency  toward  reducing  the number for the  smallest  allies.      The British dominions each have their  own voice ih the conferences, on thc ground that  each is a separate nation and sent its own force  to France.    Canada, Australia, South Africa and  India will have two representatives each and New  Zealand will have one delegate.  Twenty-six nations were represented at the  formal opening. When the conference gets down  to business, the first, question to be taken up will  be thc League of Nations. Other matters to bc  decided* are: The formation of a definite policy  toward Russia, involving possible recognition of  the Russian Soviet government; indemnities to  bc collected from Germany; thc final disposition  of the Gcrman fleet; thc future,of thc German  colonies; thc regulation of national boundaries;  the demand of Greece for Contantinople; the disposition of the Holy Land; thc adjustment of  national boundaries along racial lines; freedom  of thc seas and reduction of armaments.  Dr. E. J. Dillon, .in a cable to .the Vancouver  Province,  tells of  thc  "Many-sided  but  disconnected movement to substitute a moral relationship  of,nations  for  a  latent  slate  of  Warfare  known as equilibrium which is still waiting for  the last touches to its appointed organ.% Mcan-V  while tlie subtle skill of old-world diplomacy is  working hard to revive, under spacious names,  its lost causes while thc new-world policy, naively  ignoring historical forces and secular prejudices,  is boldly reaching out toward modes of ideal arrangements which  lake no account of concrete  circumstances.     Generous  idealists   on   the  one  hand arc pitted against old diplomatic stagers on  the other hand, and botli arc secretly endeavoring to conclude hastily made bargains'before thc  conference opens its business sittings."

It Means Dollars in the Pockets  of Poultry Men who Have  Winter Layers.  fc#  . sr  X rs  Whether any poultryman desires to try it or not, it pays to  light thc chicken house. If the  experience of the Dominion  poultry farm.is an example of  what may be done by others, it  is worth trying as a purely business proposition. The poultry  division of the Experimental  Farms have tested it for two  seasons, during the winter of  1916-17 with two pens (40 birds  in all) of Barred Rock pullets,  and during last winter wilh two  pens of JRock pullets and two  pens of Leghorn pullets, (40  birds of each breed.)  In each light pen of twenty  birds two tungsten 40-watt  lamps were'--used. Thcy were  turned on at 6 a.m. and left till  daylight, then turned, on again  in the afternoon before dusk  and left till 0 p. m. This was  started in November- when thc  days became short and continued until the middle of  March when light was unnecessary. In thc 1910-17 test thc  light pen laid 1106 eggs wilh a  total, value of $54.93. Thc cost  of feed was $22.53, thc cost of  light $2.40, total cost of $24.73.  This gave a.balance over cost  of feed and light of $30.20 or a  cost per dozen eggs of 26.8 cents  Thc dark pen laid 636 eggs  wilh a total value of $29.46;  cost of feed was $21.09. This  gave a ablancc over cost of feed  of $8.37. The cost per dozen  eggs was 39.8 cents.  In   1917-18,   the   yields   were  not high in either case, and the  total difference in egg yield in  the 6 months was by no means  large, but the forty birds with  light gave a better revenue than  thc  forty   without   light.    This  difference was made up in  thc  time   that  eggs  were  received  ���������������������������those with thc light gave their  heaviest yields in December and  January,    while    by    far    thc  heaviest*months  for.   the  Leg-  ' horns without light were March  and April and for Rocks January  and   February.     The   total  figures from the twro pens with  thc light were: Number of eggs,  2,470,'   value   $136.32;   cost  of  feed, $55.48:xost of light, $3.20;  balance, $77.64, or a cost of 28.5  cents per dozen.  Those without light laid 2242  eggs; value, $118.90; cost of  feed, $60.01; balance $58.94; a  cost of 32.1 cents per dozen.  For both years, the light pens  laid 2476 eggs, at a market  value of $191,25. The feed and  light cost $83.41, leaving a balance og $107.84, or a cost per  dozen of 28.7 cents.  Thc dark pens laid 2878 eggs,  worth $148.36. The cost of feed  was $81.10_ and. Uic_cpst.of_.onc  Annual Meeting Zion Church  Only between 30 and 40 members and adherents of the Presbyterian congregation were in  attendance last Wednesday evening at their annual meeting.  Rev. W. Stott presided and R.  Arnott was elected as secretary.  The report of the session  showed that for various reasons, 11 morning and 24 evening  services had been missed. Tlie  average attendance at the morn-  ing services was 96, and at the  evening 68. The membership  had been reduced from 130 to  111, although seven new members had becn received. The  decrease is due almost entirely  to removals. The number of  families had increased from 93  to 106. Eight services had bcen  held at Larkin, with an average  attendance of 22:  Regret was expressed over  thc resignation of Mrs. Gott,  who for thc pasl three ycars has  presided at tbe organ.     ������������������*  Of thc other reports, thc one  presented by thc Ladies' Aid  was most interesting in that it  chronicled thc wiping out of the  old note that had hung over tbe  congregation for a number of  ycars. At thc conclusion of thc  report this note was burned by  Mrs. Meade and Mrs. Gott, president and secretary of the society.  Thc   various   financial   state-  /s ���������������������������*,  ments showed that in all $2,368  was contributed, $464 of which  went lo missionary and patriotic purposes. In addition the  Women's IVIissionary Society  sent oil two bales, valued at������������������$43.  The great world war had  called for thc sacrifice of twelve  members of thc congregation,  tlie total number on thc Honor  Roll being 68.  Thc managing board was increased from 6 to 9, three ladies  being added, three instead of  two to be elected each year.  Those elected for the three period were Mrs. Gott, T. K. Smith  and H. C. Armstrong. JMrs.oJ.  Simington was elected for a  two-year period, and Mrs. JN.  Ferguson for one year.  Mrs.  A.

The conclusion may bc drawn that for  early winter eggs during the.  short days, the light does increase thc egg yield but later in  the season the yield is not as  heavy as with birds that have  not had thc ligl\t. The advisability of using light, therefore,  will depend upon what is  wanted. If early winter .and  high-priced eating eggs arc the  object the lights arc an advantage; if eggs during the hatching-  season ar.e desired, lights arc  a disadvantage.
