But the public  looks upon a profiteer as a loathsome object. To  Canada's dishonor roll has been added the names  of the Ogilvie Milling Company, the Maple Leaf  Milling Company, and some smaller firms, with  more to follow. The Ogilvie concern made 72  per cent net profit on the common stock in 1918,  and the attitude of the directors is such as to  make the public wonder why the company  showed such restraint as to stop at a mere 72  per cent."  WHAT IS PROFITEERING?  THURSDAY, JULY 10, 1919  HYDRO  ELECTRIC  CONVENTION  On "Wednesday, June 25lh, members of thc  City Councils of Salmon Arm, Enderby, Armstrong .and Vernon, and the Municipality of Spallumcheen, were in consultation regarding hydro  electric development at Shuswap Falls and  Adams River. It was then represented that some  action had already bcen taken in this matter by  the people of Shuswap Lake dislrict, including  the city municipalities of Kamloops ancl Salmon  Armi; and it was mutually agreed that another  convention should bc held in lhc Okanagan district for the purpose of organizing co-operation  to further any hydro electric project, the responsibility for the call being assumed by thc municipalities above named.  Thc call to this convention is extended to all  the municipalities, Boards of Trade, ancl U. F. B.  . C. or other farmers' organizations from Kelowna  to Kamloops, including Kelowna, Mission, Ellison  Rutland, Oyama, Okanagan Centre, Coldstream,  Lumby, Vernon, Armstrong, Spallumcheen,  Enderby, Salmon Arm cily and district, Silver  Creek, Glenemma, Kalkland, Grand' Prairie,  Puck Range, Pritchard, Ducks and Kamloops;  and including any olher interested district in this  territory. The representation shall be three persons from.each Council, Board or farmers' organization, all" of whom should bring credentials  in regular form. b  The convention will be held in the City Hall,  Vernon, on Thursday, July 17, "at 2 p.m.  The following public representatives have been  Invited to be present and lake part in the proceedings: Hon.

Balconi, chief metallurgical engineer  of the Acme Engineering Company, of Toronto,  sends the Globe (Toronto) a copy of the following letter addressed to the Minister of Labor:  "Dear Sir���������������������������I observe in to-day's Globe an article on'Thc High Cosl of Living,' also mentioning  the cost ofclothing.  "For sonic considerable lime 1 have been  making tests and analytically examining the  samples of goods secured from various so-called  reputable business manufacturers of the city of  Toronto, and thc discovery is siinply appalling.  As an example, one reputable business house  sent me samples ranging from $45 to $75 for an  ordinary suit, the higher-priced ones being guaranteed to bc all wool, and on examining these,  in no instance was there ten per cent of wool  in any of the cloth. On the contrary, the cloth  was spun from woolen rags put together and a  small amount of wool, that is, what is known as  new wool, ancl the fur clippings from various  fur-bearing animals. Once in a while a chicken  may contribute ti part of it. Another reputable  business house, with suits up to $55. claiming  them to be GO per cent wool,, did not have a  thread of wool in the cloth.  "Now, if you will start an analytical examination you can easily verify my statements.,  "I fail to find a. yard of cloth anywhere that  can possibly cost more than one dollar at thc  present price of labor and'material, and I am  prepared to prove my statement. I would like  lo correspond wilh you on lhc subject.  "Yours very truly, A. R. Balconi.  Peace Celebration at Vernon  Attention is drawn to the advertisement in another column  of ths Commoner for the Peace  Celebration to be held in Vernon  August 4-5. An outstanding  feature of the celebration and  Returned Soldiers' Reunion on  these dates will be the arrival on  the first day of the celebration  of an aeroplane which will fly  direct from Vancouver to Vernon without a stop. Mail will  be carried, ancl this will be the  longest uninterrupted flight yet  undertaken in Brilish Columbia.  During the celebration the aeroplane will give exhibitions of  fancy.,-flying' similar to the exhibition given tit Armstrong on  July 1st.. It is also intended to  arrange for a "night raid" on  the city, with the necessary -adjuncts of search fights, etc. Thc  blowing up of a building by  bombs "dropped from the machine is tilso spoken of.  Taxes to the amount of over  $14,000.00 were received at the  City Hall, Enderby, during the  month of June.

Il appears from lhc opinion  expressed hy and through lhc independent press  of the Dominion, lhal the mass of Canadians are  doing a deal of thinking along Ihesc lines. They  are not prepared to accept llu; naked charge of  Bolshevism againsl a half-dozen labor leaders  as proof of guill. Canada is nol prepared to  take lhc rule of Bolshevism from onc source any  sooner than from anolher���������������������������llie rule of lhe profiteer is considered as much a menace tis lhe rule  of Bolshevism. Indeed, if would appear the rule  of the profiteer is more a menace, in lhal we now  havc il, and Bolshevism m Canada never w;i������������������-  more than a iiiylh in the bohnils of our profiteer.*,  and politicians.

If you draw your checks  for this, you cannot for that���������������������������lake your choice.  And above all, do not draw on the Bank of Futurity by breathing bad air, keeping bad hours  and bad company. Thc man who succeeds in  business is the one who goes to bed before ten  o'clock at night; and only onc thing he is jealous  of, and that is out-door exercise. = Gambling  robs a man of rest; and the keen edge of his life  is lost in shuffling the pasteboards. All he gives  his employer or the world is the discard. Outside of his play hc is a weak, inellicient person,  and his weakness is apt to manifest itself in burdening his friends. The curse of gambling docs  not "fall on the gambler alone, any moreo than  does the drunkard alone suffer for his fault.  Suffering falls upon every one within the radius  of the. gambler.  ACCEPTING RESPONSIBILITY  A COLD BUSINESS PROPOSITION  "No man," once wrote a man of lhe world,  "who plays cards I'or money can keep his  position long. The fact is, none'of us have: a ���������������������������surplus of brains, and if you iu\c going lo succeed in  business, all lhe power you have lo your credit  i.s demanded. The man who can piny cards tit  night and do business in lhe daylinie, hasn't yet.  One of lhe best signs of the times is in that  the returned soldiers tire prepared to accept thc  responsibility which seems to have been thrust  upon thcni in the reconstruction period. In recent issues of the Ottawa Veteran some very  plain speaking has been indtilged in by the  editor. Ancl in thc recent national convention  of the Veteran's Association these thoughts were  given verbal expression hy several speakers.  "Recognition, wliich was slow at first, has at  length been fully accorded the Great War Veterans' Association of Canada," said Comrade W.  P. Purney, Dominion president of the G. W. V. A.  in his opening address at thc convention. "Today," he continued, "we arc regarded os the  steadying influence in the country���������������������������a power to  be used for good, and good alone, for Canada.  We can now face the world in the proud' knowledge lhal we have gained and retain the confidence of our fellow citizens and that they look  to us as the guardians of the destinies of this  country"  These words spoken by the president of the  War^Vcleraiisr'inclicate^that^thc^returnecl^men  have correctly sensed thc pulse of public opinion  in Canada. Many things have happened since  lhcy started lo return from overseas which  have inspired' confidence in lhe men. Before the  men returned Ihe newspapers were filled with  publicity slulf setting forlh innumerable schemes  by which the Government���������������������������Dominion and Provincial���������������������������was going to help Ihe soldiers returning.  These schemes looked very good'���������������������������on paper���������������������������  but when the returned boys got back and thcy  began lo look them over, lhe schemes did not  appeal to Ihem. Then the change in altituc.  Government ollicials began to realize that they  were not dealing with inexperienced men���������������������������men  who did not know what they most required.  Soon it became clear that the real question  was not onc of "What are wc going to clo with  the returned boys, but, rather, one of "What are  the returned men going lo require shall be done  not only for themselves but for the good of Canada." Comrade Purney, in his talk before the  convention, dealt with many phases of the work  of the Association, emphasizing throughout' lhc,  urgent need for the government to grasp the  point-of view of the returned citizen, lie said  it had always been' the policy of the G. W. V. A.  to support lo lhe fullest extent the constituted  authority of lhc counlry, as long as the government appeared lo be honestly striving to grapple  with" the problems of the returned men. ' Thc  Dominion executive, however, had told lhe members of the Government at Ottawa that if they  continued to permit thc existence of grievances  which were lhe--cause of unnecessary friction  and suffering to lhcir fellows, or. their dependents, aiicl, at the. same time, continued to ignore  the advice of a body of men such as lhc G. W. V.  A., who were qualified to speak, Ihen they,could  not bc-responsible for thc body they represented.  "We have lold the Govrnmcnl," continued  Comrade Purney, "thnt a policy of 'drift' can no  longer satisfy the dominion executive, of the G.  W. V. A. or the great body of returned citizens  which they represent. 1 feel that the time has  come for the Government to realize that lhc  share and weight of public opinion embodied in  the G. W. V. A. is sufficient to justify the enactment of legislation embodying our sound and  just opinions., 1 wish to sound a nofc of warning.

Bran Shorts  Etc.  W.LWoodfe, Enderby  Writing in the Armstrong Advertiser, Mr. H. Patten says:  Dear Sir: Early in the spring,  oi*Jate winter we rendin the Commoner, that the new Board of  Trade had tackled the Chinese  question nnd intended to handle it  without gloves.  Thnt would have becn welcome  news to many of us had we not  known that all such resolutions  have so far ended without any  "tackle." There was nothing to it.  Just  a periodical spasm.  There have bcen some good editorials in recent issues of thc late  Commoner, as well, putting the  subject up to us in pretty strong  terms. But, pshaw! what's thc use?  It's like throwing watcr on a duck's  back.  Kvcrybody remembers thc big in.  (ligiiation pow wow occasioned by  the Joe Young-Sam Pan hind deal.  You will remember the Hood of  oratory that seemed to sweep  everybody off their feet; the committees appointed to do such and  such  work, and  resolutions galore!  Oh. what  a screaming farce!  So far as I know there has never  heen a finger raised to carry out  the first thing proposed. Besides,  some of those who made the biggest  noise at that meeting havc becn  persistent renters of their land to  the  Chinamen.  We bave noticed different  schemes have been proposed for  dealing with the problem���������������������������mostly  visionary. It's folly to try and lay  the blame on the' Chinks. ������������������������������������������������������ They  have been allowed lo come in here  and get possession of nearly all the  best land. They are not fools. Far  from it. They know a good thing  when thev see it, if the whiteman  doesn't. Tlie fact is. the town people, many of them, and the owners  of the lands particularly, don't  want to get rid of the Chinks so  long as thev can rent them their  lands, and think that they are getting something for- nothing. That  has been quite apparent to me. at  least; more so since Jack Linton  was obliged to sell out to a Chink  because no whiteman would help  him out. and until the people are  thoroughly singed with thc fact  that the Chinese are a real menace  ���������������������������morally, socially,"financially and  physically, things will just go from  bad to worse. When they do reach  that state of mind, there is a way  to get rid of them; and only onc,  and as easy as rolling off a log:  Nefuse to rent them land and the  tiling is done. A few may stay on  and work for a white man, but that  isn't as bad as a swarm.-  If anything would stimulate the  Board of Trade and the town authorities to immediate and vigorous  action, the report presented before  the Board a short time ago hy Mr.  Buckley stating that the Chinese  gardeners had sent homc to China  390,000 last seeason, should do so.  How would ������������������90,000, or half of it,  look to our town fathers, not only  last year, but every year? And it's  quite possible the/- bulk of. the  money was earned within the town  limits, sind would naturally be  spent here-if earnedby whitemen.  It might be inteiesting for a moment to enquire what the Chinamen have done for the town? Have  thev been a valuable asset, or have  tbey provcel an economic detriment to the growth and prosperity  of Armstrong?  JJv reason of its situation, as a  distributing and divisional centre,  witb mites of good country on al  sides of it. Armstrong today should  be one of tbe very best towns m lhe  Valley.   Js it?     .  Perhaps there is nothing that indicates more accurately and readily  the growth and progress of a town  than its newspaper.   It is a sort ot  !aromcter7   If 'the town  Is wide  awake and up-to-the-minute, its  newspapers are bound to keep step.  Looked at from that angle, is  Armstrong active town? Or, say  half alive? Please, Mr. Editor,  don't think that I am trying to belittle your paper. It's little enough  now, but you are not to blame. A  newspaper, I don't care how ably  conducted, can't help a town that  refuses to be helped. I recognize  that you have done your level best.  No  one  can  do more.  I believe,, sir, tliat you are a born  optimist. When I read your little  notice in connection with "Armstrong Rest Room" and the amount  of tally heaped on the "live and  prosperous city," thc "wide-awake  municipal and cily councils, I concluded that you. had strucK a ve^i  of sarcasm. Perhaps I was wrong.  If the Advertiser was placed in  the hands of a stranger what conclusion would he naturally come  lo after going through it? I imagine  it would be something like this;  Hello! here's a freak! A city where  they don'l advertise. There seems  1o be no grocery stores at all; nor  any dry goods���������������������������oh, yes, here's one  with a light line of women's summer wear. Yes, and here is a little  men's furnishing store, while the  hardware men are slim, and real  estate men���������������������������they arc everywhere.  There are no bakers nor butchers.  There seems to be no blacksmith,  and no place to get a meal. Oh,  yes, here's a light lunch counter.  There are somc ads from other  towns; perhaps people trade there;  it's not far; there seems to be lots  of cars. Well this must be some  city! Oh, yes! well that's not so  bad. Here, i.s an undertaker and  funeral conductor; that's some  comfort to know that .in case of  death onc will bc decently buried.  This wouldn't bc an un natural  conclusion, and.I would ask, would  such a conclusion suggest a live  town, would it?  Shame on the busincsmen of  Armstrong! Do you realize that  you are boycotting your newspaper? That's an illegal act. Wake  ii]) and get a liberal ad in the Acl-  nertiscr. Don't be too modest to  let us know what you have got to  sell. Supposing there is hut one  sawmill, or one sash and door factory, or one harness shop; suppose  there i.s but onc butcher or baker  or druggist���������������������������or one anything. Let  the people know what you are here  for, and help make your paper  something to bc proud of. and thc  paper will help you. If you don't,  then a.s sure as night follows day  you will find your town a back  number very soon. You like to bc  rated a progressive city... The  writer has becn a resident of this  section for about twelve years, and  if there has been any improvement  in the business part of the town  that would denote thrift or progress, excepting sidewalks. I have  failed to see it. A little older, and  shabbier, perhaps, part, of it decidedly so. T have heard the place  dubbed Chinatown more than once  and as long as" present conditions  prevail things will get worse instead of better. You can't get rid  of the horde of Chinks any too  soon. The Board of Trade named  a committee a'while ago to write  up something to advertise the  place- For fhe life of me I don't  know what anyone can write- We  have?the finest climate, and t he  best gardens land on the continent.  Wc still have our share of the climate, but the Chinks are in possession of about all the best land, and  there vou are. Would 'that be any  inducement? Were I a prospector  coming in here, and after learning  that those suburban residences are  occupied bv Chinamen, and then  see the line-up at the station when  the men are idle, that would satisfy  me. You can easily see that you  are up against the Chinese where-  ever you turn.���������������������������  car of  quality at a  low price.
