In~ addition to xeceiving the  Government grant on the past  season's work, Nurse McPhcrson and the Enderby Hospital  Board have added many im-  provements which havc oeen  made possible by the kindness  and generosity of citizens kindly  disposed. With the completion  of the fire-escapes this week, all  requirements of thc hospital inspector havc been met, and it  may new bc said thc hospilal is  firmly established and on its  feet. All credit for this very satisfactory condition is due to the  untiring efforts of Mrs. McPhcrson and the Hospital Board, all  of whom have, given generously  of their time and energy in the  work.'

Mr.  Adair, as chairman of the local school board, explained the proposition to the members of the  Board of Trade. He Said the Government had  agreed to-'give thc local school boards toward the  erection of. thc school building on* the basis of  50-50; that thc old school building was already  overcrowded and rooms for somc of the classes  . had to bc found' in rented buildings near-by; thai  thc old building was badly in need of repair, and  even if repaired could not furnish thc rooms for  thc children now attending, and this number was  being increased rapidly,"with no prospect of thc  school boards being able to take care of them and  provide the class rooms.  Similar conditions prevailed in many of thc  rural schools, he was,given to understand, and  many of the'rural ^schools soon worild have to  'replaced by new buildings if a consolidate school  were not built. A joint meeting of tlie city andv  rural school,board's was,soon to be held', when  definite action would be taken in order fo get a  by-law before the ratepayers of the city and rural  municipality as "early as possible: , v  _ Mayor Wright was called upon to report for thc  city.   He reviewed  the work of the delegation  sent to Victoria to urge an. increased grant for the  school, and was particularly frank in saying that .  the satisfactory results were, very largely due toV  the persistent work of Dr. MacDonald.    Mayor.  - Wright said it was a case,of"a new.school such,  as the one "proposed���������������������������12.rooms, wrth all the up-;  _to-datc adjuncts belonging to "such a building���������������������������or  thc repairing of the  old building,  already too  small to provide room -for thc number of chil- "  dJren now - attending. .

Under lhc new Municipal Act,  small municipalities such as thc  town of Enderby and Armstrong  arc going to find thc tax rale ex-  of the usual rebate for payment  by June 30th. Also, as the holding of a tax sale can be postponed for a couple of years by  the passing of a by-law to consolidate the arrears of taxes, wc  recommend that this be done,  so as to give property owners  who arc in arrear time in which  to prepare for thc new condilions created by thc Act." -  In thc estimates thc revenue is'  made up as follows:  Real estate taxes 827.985.40  Waterworks.'      4,000.00  Government school, grants    4,000.00^  Sundries, ]icciises,-etc. . . .     1,073.33  Total estimated revenue  .$3^,500.00  Estimated expenditure���������������������������  Demand loans to bank  Bonded obligations   ...   .

Since the Provincial Government has guaranteed to give to  the building ot a consolidated school building Jo  be situated at Armstrong, on the basis of 50-dO,  lhe question has become a live one and will soon  be decided  by   the   taxpayers   ot  thc  town  and  municipality.. V- \  In order to have a correct understanding oi the  proposition, it is only necessary to learn how the  consolidation of-schools has operated elsewhere,  and to decide from lhe experience of others what  llie experience of our own dislrict will-be. In  view of the question coming up here, the Commoner some lime ago procured the reporl of the  * Department of Education of the province ot  *\laniU:ba. showing lhc success of consolidation  in Ihiii province. What it has meant lhere it will  mean here. Indeed, conditions in the winter  lime in Manitoba are far more dillicult lo handle  in the way oi' transportation ol* the pupils, lhan  Ihey ever are in lhe Okanagan, and il' these problem's are overcome there lhcy readily can be here  where climatic condilions are so much milder.  IkiL read what the reporl says: "Consolidated  schools, (which havc now been in operation in  Manitoba for sixteen 'years) arc fulfilling the  highest expectations of "their promoters in over-,  coming many of thc difficulties under which our  rural schools have been laboring.  '���������������������������By consolidation is meant the merging into  onc large "district of two or .more smaller districts, thus forming a new dislrict large enough  in numbers to admit of satisfactory classification  and lo produce in thc school a healthy spirit and  energy sufficient lo bring forth the best efforts of  tenchevs"qnd pupils-and large enough in territory  lo enable truslees lo build, equip and operate a  sciiool of modern style, furnishing an education  for lhc farmer's children equal to that of thc  children of lhc cities, towns ami viibges, wilhoul  lhcir being compelled lo leave home to secure it.  On account of the enlarged size of these districts,  it is necessary to provide conveyance fo and from  school, a I the public expense, for all children living over one mile frcm the school house.  "Just when and where consolidation on a small  scale first look place is* nol generally known, but  thc first consolidation of rural schools in the  United Stales was effected by Supf. W. L. Eaton,  al Concord. Mass.. acting-.under a slate k^v  enacted in 1809. Several townships in Ohio are  frequently cited as pioneers in consolidation because thcrc for Llie first-- time consolidation by  cnlire townships was successfully ���������������������������undertaken.  - "/Consolidation,' says Geo. W.Jvnorr,, special  Field Agent of the Bureau of Statistics, Washington, 'with its attendant function -of public conversance of,pupils, is now. a part of thc rural  school,system of 32 states; 1,800 completely and  not less lhan 2,000 partially consolidated schools  (these figures have been more lhan doubled since  Uns statement regarding,; the number of schools  was made), attest lhc remarkable adaptability of  thc system to lhc pcculier needs of agricultural  communities.'  "Consolidation first received attention in Manitoba in 1903, and when first broached was mc\  willi a storm of ridicule, many people claiming  thai it was preposterous in a country of cold  winters, bad roads, and sparse settlement; but  dui.0n.gj Jhe short space of a few ycars, public  opinion greatly moderated, in view of the successful working of the large number of consolidated  schools in the province, and now all sections arc  -alivc--to--thc-quGsliont-and=-arc=gi-v.ing=aio-Jncon=i  siderable attention to it, and heavy demands are  constantly being made on the Department of  Education for information regarding lhc various  phases of thc syslcm, so much so, in fact, lhal  onc of the inspectors of schools, thoroughly conversant wilh lhc subject, has been appointed  special agcnl on consolidation.  "The financial side looms up largely in lhc eyes  of many people in connection wilh the question  of education a.s well as wilh othcr questions'of a  more material nature, bul Ihcy arc nol always as  ready to place along side of lhc cost lhe value  received, in educational matters, as thcy arc in  other mailers of business. Thc actual cost of  consolidated schools in a great many cases has  nol been found lo bc much greater than thai  of the old one-room rural school, and if value  rccchcd' for money spent is to bc, lhc lest,  as il certainly shuld bc. then consolidated schools  are much cheaper.  "As conditions vary in difl'ercnt districts it is  ns difficult lo give thc cost of operating lhc consolidated schools as it is lo give the cosl of operating the rural schools of lhc province lhat are  nol consolidated.  "Generally speaking, lhc cost may bc from one-  fourth lo one-third higher under consolidation.  Thc special tax in such districts runs from $10 to  $25 on a quarter-section of land, but il is necessary lhat one bc acquainted with all thc facts in  connection wilh lhc operation of a district before  hc is able lo say whether or not the tax is high.  However, more favorable conditions for the children of every man in tlie district and more eili-  ,'iency in:".tlie work of thc school are strong points  in favor of consolidation, and to those who place  .i value on, these, the question of slightly higher  cosl is hot one cf serious moment. **V  "The enrolment of .the consolidated schools has  been found to include practically' all the school  children of thc district, "but the increase in thc  average attendance is the remarkable and  striking feature. .While, the .average attendance  of country schools, generally, runs from 35 to 50  per cent, of the enrolment, that of the. consolidated schools is from 57 to 90 per cent.  "Another slrong feature of thc consolidated  schools is thai lhc farmers' child has all lhc advantages of a high-school education al his own  homc without extra expense, or the breaking up  of home lies lo go lo thc lown school lo receive  a complete general education. Parents of children  wilLr.ppreeiale greatly the value of having their  jluldren al home every night instead of lhcir being in somc near-by or far-off town, removed  from the watchful eye of thc parents. Thcrc is,  again, lhc great advantage of being conveyed  comfortably to and from school in all kinds of  weather and over roads in'all condilions.  .  "The large schools also lend to broaden lhc  character and prevent narrowness or selfishness  and with large numbers there is a hcalthty, active"  inspiring school spirit wilh sufficient pupils lo  engage in 'all kinds of sports and thus build  up an honest, rugged and manly character. To  the ^larger^schools, il has been found that the  larger cboys and girls manifest no reluctance to  attend, which is in slro'ng contrast lo.lhe conditions existing where there arc small, one-room  rural schools.  "Consolidation may not bc feasible for all districts, and thcrc may bc somc objections to the  svslcm. but-what is there lhal has been devised  ;by man lo which some objections may not bc  taken; but onc thing is certain, fo Manilobans  who havc overcome so many obstacles and difficulties in building up this grand province, and  causing' if to take first place among the sister  provinces of Jhis great Dominion, lhe little difficulties lhat may presenl themselves in 'some  .places to consolidation will bc easily overcome in  the interests of fhe greatest asset this province or  any other ������������������������������������������������������"possesscs-VfhcJ}oys.and thc girls who  ire to bc the men and IhcVvcmcn cf the future.

MacDonald M.P.P., accompanied by  Districl Road Engineer Gwycr and Assistant, Eii-  ���������������������������nnecr Dever, met a number of citizens oi En-  -derbv  and  Armstrong  last Saturday  and  went.  into "road  matters  with   them.     Each   ot   these  towns has road problems of a local nature, but  bolh are interested in the trunk road problem Ot,  thc district, and each with all is lending,a hand  ' in bringing to the attention of the Public Works  Department the trunk road needs of the locality.  Dr. MacDonald spoke most encouragingly ot  the road work it is proposed lo carry out in the-  locality this spring and early -summer. More  attention is to bc given to the trunk roads this  vear, the intention being to gravel thc bad, sppts;  in the roadway between Enderby and Armstrong.  11 is not intended to slight the rest of. the district  in order to give more to the.trunk roads, but; the,  idea is to make the work put on the trunk road  more in the nature of permanent road work than  that of heretofore.  Road Engineer Gwyrc stated it was his intention to recommend thc building of a new bridge  af Enderby, and hc believed work would be commenced about thefniddle of July. "He.said.it .was  also the intention of his department, to build! the  new piece of road leading from Enderby to. tlie.  Hassard corner, to which point tlje middle^ roajd  to Armstrong is already established. Here it is  ihe intention to build anolhcr bridge and thus do  awav with the old bridge al Fortune Crossing as  -wclfas tlie difficult hill on thc bend leading from  thc railway lo the upper road. This work has  been contemplated a number of years, and if .is  good news lo learn .thai lhc Department has at  last decided to push the work through. ���������������������������   .  Il was promised, also, lhal thc Mabel Lake  road' would receive morc a lien lion lhis season,  and many of llie bad pieces of roadmaking on:  thc way lo lhe lake arc to bc repaired or made  over again.  Mr. Johnston, representing the pocplc of. Deep  Creek, appeared .before lhc meeting lo ask con-'  sidcralion of lhc road requirements of his locality  and1 lo urge a continuance of lhe policy adopted'  by lhc Department lasl year." This was promised  by Mr. Gwyrc, who pointed to the fact lhat lhe  expenditure lasl    season    on    Deep   Creek  road  ^vork^vas^hc^higlicstr'pei'^ni i lc**-ol- a ny^scction-iiv*  his lerrilory.  It was slated by Dr. MacDonald lhal the Revel-  sloke lo Okanagan trunk road was lo be completed lhis year, provided enough relumed men  would lake the work ond see il through. This  piece of road is lo hc buill by a special granl oul  of the SIVOO.OOO borrowed by llie Government lo  carry on public work in order lo give employment lo returned men. This work is lo be proceeded with as soon a.s the men can be found lo  gel along wilh it.  A tabulated slalemenl was submilled by Mr.  Gwyer showing the cosl of road work in lhis districl lasl year. The total amount spent by-his  Department in this locality totalled $9,300. Of  this amouni $1.,2'>B was spent on the 12'/-> miles  of road in Deep Creek, or a I the rale "of $100 per  mile.   -Mara's 50 miles of road received $4,31.5," or  6 a '-mile.. Enderby's 38 miles received $2,335,  r mile. The. 185 miles,-; Of Vernon road  9 spent on il. or $40'a mile. ' The 39  Thirty.'white landowners in the".'vicinity of  Armstrong rent land to 250 Chinese. These 250  Chinese gardeners pay on an average $50 an acre  to the owners as annual rental. They plant.' cultivate and harvest "their crops of vegetables, pay  their way in the meanwhile, and last year they  seift'to1 China $90,000 in cold cash.  These are the figures reported to the Armstrong  Board) of Trade at its last meeting by Mr. Buckley !  'as'.'chairman of the coiiiinittee appointed ;by the'  Boa������������������cf a few weeks ago to inquire into the subject  fri air effort to learn if these rich bottom: lands  20uld: be  handled  by  returned. men.     Further:  /than *t60isten to tlie committee's report, no action  was taken by the Board, and 'oii'motion the'report"  was accepted and the committee discharged.  "In this connection, it., was pointed out that the  land was held at prices which were too high for  the':-returned nien to touch.    Under the circumstances, considering what thc Chinamen are prepared to pay as rental, and'knowing-what an' acre  of this land will produce, it cannot bc said that  the. prices asked are unreasonably high, though  they may bc far  in   excess   of  what a returned  soldier would feel justified in paying.    And, yet,  Jthcrc, is much   truth  in   what  was  said by  Mr.  Turnbull, a returned man, who, in lhc interest  qf ..the  community   and  returned   men   seeking  land made a trip to Vancouver to try lo induce  experienced  truck  gardeners  to locate at Armstrong, but without success.    Mr. Turnbuirs rc-  Vijiarks were bluntly- made, and  they hurt.    Hc  said he had 12 good men lined up to come here  ���������������������������men   of  family-���������������������������who  were just  waiting  the  word.' Hc had not been able to find land for himself yet, and, like many others, hc felt that the  season was already too far advanced for any man  to get land and hope to get a crop this season. Hc  would, like many others, now wait until later in  the season and endeavor to get ready for ncxt  year's planting.    Thc rcturncd0mcn were finding  it difficult'to make any headway in land settlc-  mcnt:pwing to the excessive amount of red,,jape  encountered in dealing with the land settlement  board. .  ���������������������������Mr- Turnbull handled the Oriental problem  'without gloves. Hc said thc Chinamen take the  life out of the land and put nothing back. ' He  predicted that in a few years the very land now  in'thc hands'of Chinks and producing sucli big  fcrops would be comparatively worthless, having  becn drained of thc best in it by'the excessive  crop demands made upon it by the lessees!' He  pleaded,for. closer .working together in order;'to  ������������������ct rid of the Celestial menace, thc. shacks in  the city limits and all within their walls.

Sharp  i antf Retail JJutcJie  Pnderby  o  er  -*J Attention is drawn to the advertisement of the  Canadian Co-operative Wool Growers Limited,  in this issue of thc Commoner. Last year, although the association was" pitted against the  most serious market conditions, and was opposed by the independent wool buyers, the balance sheet shows a net profit lor thc wool growers selling through the.association of $58,755.  Thc president, in reviewing thc year's business  says: "That approximately 4,500,000 pounds of  wool were sold througli the agency of this organization in its first year of operation conclusively  proves lhat such a medium is urgently needed  for the purpose of assembling, grading, standardizing and marketing of wool. In ils initial year  it is nol by any means claimed that errors of  judgment have nol occurred, but with your advice and suggestions here, coupled wilh thc experience of the past, il may he anticipated that  wilh a board1 of directors and ofhcc stall' more  familiar with lhe details of the business, improvement will be brought aboul. Onc mosl gratifying  point in connection with the year's operation i.s  thai wilh one single exception lhe grading was  accepted in bolh American and Canadian markets, and this has undoubtedly been thc means  of a grealer amouni of wool being lipid in "Canada for thc use of our own manufacture than  has to =our, knowledge occurred in the history  of thc trade. Thc proper grading of Canadian  wool and the payment for it upoli its grade and  condition is the very best stimulus for improvement to the growerVind the belter the wool the  greater lhc demand for it."  ' 'In-Uic Manager's reporl the following facts relating lo thc wool debacle.in which the'big wool  merchants were' caught, in lhcir elforts to "beat  down the market for the wool handled-by the as-  sociation, will be interesting to wool growers in  this district whose clip \yas lasl year, disposed of  through the co-operative association:  "Thc result of thc merchants' competition  mainly reacted against Uicmsclves.

B. Stacey, member of the Federal House  for Westminster district, has arrived at Vancouver from Ottawa, and he expects to be at thc  coast some weeks in connection with soldier land  settlement. He comes a I lhc express wish of the  Federal Government lo assist in the community  settlement idea, as a direct result of the campaign  carried on at Ottawa by representatives of llie  Asia committee, thc plans of which havc been  detailed from time to- time. A Vancouver report  says it is the intention of Mr. Stacej^ and the Ottawa authorities to recognize the desire of returned soldiers lo sc.ttlc in groups', so that full advantage may bc taken of co-operative effort.  , II .will bc remembered that when thc Asia men  first suggested thc group settlement idea, bolh  the Provincial and Dominion Governments opposed the idea,Jiaving read llie press propaganda  againsl Bolshevism; no doubt, and become  scared lest our B. C. boys were becoming Bolshevists. But now, on closer inspection of llie.boys  and-tbeir proposition, both thc Provincial and  Dominion authorities havc evidently been won  over lo the idea and arc doing everything possible"  to assist thc returned men lo get on lhc land���������������������������in  groups, singly or any other way.  II is lo bc feared, however, thirl lhc men who  iia'vc had this land settlement project in hand  havc not had a very clear idea of what the men  desire nor any definite policy of settlement to  begin wiih.- Returned men from the coast say  there are loo many marble-floored and marblc-  wallcd office buildings in Vancouver occupied by  Government agents of the land settlement board  who make a loud noise but from whom mighty.  little information can'be learnedby returned men  wlio-arc looking for-something more-than fine-  looking offices and'loud protestations.* -Many of  llie" men "who were anxious to get on land in time  lo plant .this-ycar now, feci lhat it is already" too  late for a man unaccustomed lo the landand con-"  cations to hope lo succeed in getting a crop.in this  year. _and many -have been made hike-warm on  thc proposition by what lhcy call red tape.      .
