B- Dill, Enderby Supply  Co., S. H. Speers, Geo. B. Sharpe  Chas. Oppcrtshauscr, W. J.  Woods, G������������������p.- Radford, A. McPhcrson, Enderby Growers,^ W.  H. Scott, Hop Sing, Long Louie,  Sing Kee and-Dowe Yuen, was  read before the City Council  Monday evening, asking that a  by-law bc passed and enforced  compelling every merchant to  close his place ol" business at 9  o'clock Saturday nights. The  petition caused some animated  discussion. It was thc expressed  opinion of the members of ,thc  Council that the merchants, if  they .desired to close their stores  at 9 o'clock to do so by agreement as is done in other towns,  instead of bringing the law in  force against the public, for, in  a small town like Enderby that  is really what- such a-" law  amounts tb. It was pointed out  that such a law would be an obstacle in the way of business,  and, while favoring the,business  man who desired tb close at ;9  o'clock would-work a hardship  on the person who wished to  trade and the merchant who  wished to sell after that hour.  The .Council was disposed to go  more fully into the matter before putting such a law on the  books, as it was distinctly class:  legislation, and would tend to  put,further obstacles iri the"way  of trade between Enderby and  thc people of the town'and district. What the Couricil desired  to. sec was that, if 9 o'clock closing was.to the best interests"of  all, iHbe done by agreement-be-,  tween the merchants and not by"  a law iri restraint of trade arid  .that certainly., would>wbrkjjja  -fta������������������&l$t^'oi������������������rJ^  unable to get' tb town, or;tbrthe  store before 9"b'clbck.

It was thc opinion of  the Council that entirely too little consideration was shown in  the petition for the rights of the  buying public, ancl, it being the  duty of thc Council to. legislate  in the larger community interest and not in the trade interest  of one businessman against another, the petition was not received favorably, and was laid  over for further consideration.

Hotmail, tobacco growers of Kelow-V  na, that   the   Okanagan   Valley  is missing a rare opportunity by*  not taking up tobacco growing  as a prime factor in our com-  mercial output.    Just now, and  probably   for - sonic   ycars   td  come, the price paid for tobacco  will be high.     A   preferential  tariff duty of" 37c has been .imposed -by England in- favor of  the Canadian grown weed.

Indeed, -what hope is there  for the success of thc League of Nations if the  right to collectively bargain is taken away?  ������������������The position is absolutely untenable. No government of the people can adopt a policy tor itself and the reverse policy for its people, let  this precisely is what thc Dominion Government  is claiming the right to clo. If nations have the  ri������������������ht collectively to bargain then organized labor  must bc conceded,the same privilege. It it ties  up the industries of thc country this is a serious  matter but there are other ways to settle the dispute between capital ancl labor without adopting  the obsolete policy of suppression.  that   to   insure   a  WILLINGLY NOW OR PERFORCE THEN.  Many of our growers have an idea that thc  morc buyers of produce they have to sell to ancl  through, the better price ancl thc better service  thcy will bc able to gel. How this idea works out  in practice we are not going to say, but truth  demands that the question of doubt be raised.  As one has said, thcrc is a certain amount ot  produce to bc sold in an open market. Thc more  buying agencies through whose hands !bfc produce  must pass, the higher the cost of selling. Jf three  men arc doing the work one man could handle,  somebody must pay the upkeep of two men  whose services really arc not required.   This cost    must eventually come out of the grower.
