MILLER DEAD  Heart Trouble" Carries Away a  -   Pioneer in the Ministry Well-  Known in this District.  A representative- meeting of  delegates from all parts of the  Okanagan, Salmon Arm and  Kamloops, was held in the Agricullural Hall, of the Court  ] louse, Vernon, lasl Thursday  afternoon. Delegates numbering ���������������������������!."> were enrolled.  Dr. K. C. iNlacDonald, M.P.P.,  was in llie. chair. II. JM. Walker  was ejected convention secretary.  Mayor Clingan of Salmon  Arm, read a paper on the advantages lhal wouldi come lo  llie Okanagan if hydro-electric  power could he generated within easy access of Iho-eenlres of  llie Valley.  Mayor Clingan went closely  into Uic matter of costs iu connection wilh the operation of  lhe electric lighting plants at  Salmon Arm. Vernon and Armslrong, wilh the oil-burning engine, and showed lhat. inspitc  of liie high rale charged in these  cities, llie plants were being  operated al an annual loss.  lie urged lhe combined cll'orl  of Ihe districl lo bring inlo operation lhe bydro-elcclrie system,  which would mean a lower rate,  belter service, and increased  development of  thc district.  Mr. F. .1. Fulton, of Kamloops   hydro   service,   explained  "the   magnitude    of"   lhe   water  "powers   available   in    thc   province,  and  particularly  that on  Adams  river and  on   Shuswap  liver, near Mabel Lake, 20 miles  from   Enderby.     From   corrcs-  . pondence  he  bad   already Jiad  - willi lhc Department at Ollawa,-  ' he   fell" confident   lhal  the Do-  minion   Governmcnl   was   prepared   lo  assist in  any  hydro  ..eleclriCpdcvclopjiient thai would  lend   lo the prosperity and' ad  vancemenl of  the district.    He  strongly    favored    government  O   ���������������������������.* ,*���������������������������"-"  'operation of these natural resources instead of turning them  over lo private, enterprise. Wc  promised lo aid in every way he  could in bringing tb the attention of the head's-of his department thc economic feasibility  of the projects under consideration.  Mr. Anderson.. M.P.P., ol  Kamloops," explained that thc  Dominion Governmcnl had already carried oul a very complete survey of the water powcr  in question- The question now  is lo develop this power which  is known to exist. In order to  encourage this development we  must discover the possibility of  building up a steady load. Wc  J ho ugh LJ L=w; i s^.i i p_lo_lhc���������������������������Gov-.  eminent lo make an  invcsliga  lion in order lo gain thc information required.  Mr. Kline, of thc Dominion  Hydro Survey, believed lhal  lhe development of. thc power  resources should be by thc cooperation of both lhe Provincial  and Dominion Governments  He was familiar wilh the possibilities of hydro-electric power  development-at thc Skookum  Chuck, on Shuswap river, near  Mabel Lake.-where, wilh -10-foot  head and abundant reserve it  would be possible lo develop  as high as 10,000 horsepower,  2'1-hour service for 12 month in  the year. On Adams river his  investigations convinced him  lhal there was ilow and head  enough for 15,000 horse-power  cnnlinuous service.  Mr. Young, former controller  of lhe Water Branch, Victoria,  for a number of ycars, and familiar wilh lhe condilions of thc  MeKcnzie-Mann Coutau Powcr  franchise, urged the convention,  or ils commille on investigation  to go carefully into the conditions-involved.  Mr. C. R. Yuill, electrical engineer, of Vancouver, called attention lo lhc fact that in 1910  he made an investigation of the  Endcrby-Mabel Lake power site  and at :that time he reported  a powcr plant could be put in  most economically.  Messrs: Twigg, of Grindrod,  Cossitt and Sliallord, of Vernon,  and Copeland of Lumby, spoke  in connection with Ihe proposal  before lhe convention.  Tbe conclusions of lhe convention "are summed up in the  following resolutions drawn up  by a resolutions commillcc consisting of Mayor Carmcnt,  Kamloops; Mayor Barnes, Enderby; Mayor Clingan, Salmon  Arm; Mr.l Hasscn, Armstrong;  Mr. Copeland, Lumby; Mr.  Cossilt, Veiiion; ami Mayor  Suthcrlaiid,Kolowna,and passed  by thc convention:  To the Hon. lhe Premier of Caiiiithi,  and lhe Hon.

One Reason. Why.  Thc old idea lhat the farmer  docs not require a great deal of  education and lhal bis education  was quite complete when he  knew how to plow, sow and  rea p has bcen entirely changed.  The agricullurc of today is becoming scientific and to make  good at Ihis calling onc must of  necessity possess a knowledge  of lhe soil, coupled with shrewdness, foresight and keen lousiness ability. Yes, truly, agricullurc considered from lhc modern standard is growing more  dillicull and will never, bc less  *-S i-  so, for lhc conscrva'lion*'of IJJer-  lililv which is our. national life  cannot he entrusted to ignomnt  and untrained people- 11 will  never be better suited to tbe  man of low capacity lhan il is  loday,'on lhc contrary Jl. will  constantly demand more"'ability  and public policy will encourage  that demand.' Accordingly our  people must bc educated as  farmers; not a few, bul:inany;  not here and there one, bul  whole communities of people,  men and women together, bent  not only upon gelling lhc.mosl  out of lhc land, bul ulsouipon  gelling lhe.most out of cojunlry  'life.     By   founding '.-and* 'iiiain-  scbools the men anil women of  thc future may bc brought up  and educated to bc a pride to  this country, an unmistakable  asset and a satisfaction to themselves.  "All this can neither be dori-i.  by the weak, isolated country  schools, nor can it be done indirectly by making use of the  city schools for ihe purpose.  City schools teach city life and  the facts and atmosphere that  go with cily life. If wc arc to  have a .healthy country life and  a normal country people, we  must organize schools lhat can  give us the best in education and  yet be in thc country and in  daily contact with the form of  life-farm children must of necessity' become accustomed to  in order to succeed in the calling  lhcy intend to follow. .-  Here arc some, of the advantages of consolidation:  .       '_  (1) The system is best, for  the schools c'aii be better "made  and more thoroughly.equipped.  (2) A graded system is -possible and complete terms ��������������������������� of  school can bc assured.

(12) In thc consolidated rural  school all children from, thc entire district meet, mingle, compete, strive, make friendships  and learn to work togelher. All  those .attending the high school  grades return home daily and  doing their a Holed work or  chores morning or evening,  keep''"in touch with the home,  tlicfarm and its affairs, and rc-  mniii'-undcr   the   parental   care  ���������������������������uriiig the most imprcssionab"';  period1 of Iheir lives. There is  no longer any need for lhc chil-  Ircn to attend at private expense  distant hoarding schools or to  pay board in lhc.nearby village  lo attend high school, thus making unnecessary the present  methods of supporting a double  system of education for country  children.  (13) In short, the consolidated rural school brings to the  country that thing, thc absence-  of wliich has driven so many  families to town ancl so many  boys olf the farm, namely, a  well-classified,    well '������������������������������������������������������''equipped  * j  taining good  homes  anr/good and well taught school. OKANAGAN COMMONER  THURSpAY, JULY 24, 1919  !' -    ������������������  \*<-.r.  m  In which is merged The Enderby Presa and Walker's Weekly  Published every Thursday at Enderby, B.C.. by The Walker Press, at  per year: $1.00 six months.   THURSDAY. JULY 21, 19"'.)  POWER PLANT AGITATION  Tbe fact that from 5,000 lo 10.000 horsepower,  daily 24-hour service, for 12 months in the year,  is flowing to waste down thc Spalluinchccn river  past Enderby, should nol he longer ignored. This  fact was stated al the llydro-Klcclric Convention  held' at Vernon last week, by Government.hydro  surveyors who have laken measurements of the  water ilow for a number of years. According to  the report of the Dominion Conservation Board,  "there is at the Skookum Chuck, a .'>0 lo 40-foot  head, wilh a reserve from 1.000 square miles of  watershed. This waler flow' is capable of being  harnessed at very lillle cosl so as lo produce from  5,000 to 10,000 horsepower.  It will bc remembered lhal six or eight ycars  ago, application.was made iu the regular way for  water-right privileges al lhis poinl. ostensibly for  a pulp mill. Whether, this right was ever given  by the Governmcnl. or by whom il was obtained,  would require some searching lo' discover. But  the big fact is lhat lhe power is lhere: thai it is  not being made use of, and lhal lhere is need for  the utilization of this power. Wilh Salmon Arm,  Armstrong and Vernon facing-"a deficit each year  on Iheir electric light plan Is. and with 116 possibility"'of greatly reducing lhe eosls of opera tion,  it behooves these towns., wilh Enderby, lo gel  busy and keep busy until Ihey can interest somebody in the hydro-cleclriC proposition, with the  object of reducing costs and gelling belter service  both for house and I'or power.  The subject of waler power is one of greal and  growing inleresl in Canada. II is a subject that  ���������������������������we have a duty lo perform in sludying. Dr. Geo.  Otis Smith, director of lhe United Slates Geological Survey, stales lhal. in the long run, the utilization of watcr power means the saving of human nergy for purposes lo wliich power-driven  ^machinery is nol yel ad'apled. The mere change  from steam powcr lo waler power i.s not only significant of lower cosls in manufacturing and  of Ihe saving-of Ihe earth's stored fuel for its  more important uses, bul il relieves thc labor  necessary in mining Ihe coal and lhe still greater  burden of transporting il. Every water powcr  harnessed ancl displacing sleam power implies,  therefore, a greal band of laborers in the mine  and on   lhc  railways  freed   from   lhis partieulai  considered is tliat of market available for the  juice if it is produced. This point will require  some investigation before anything like an accurate statement can be made. It is safe to say,  however, that the market is here for all the current that will be produced. True, the towns are  scattered, and the Valley is not thickly populated  just now. But population will come with facilities for developing the land and easy access to  market.  oThe opinion of the convention was strongly in  favor of asking the Government to electrify the  Canadian National Railway, now in the course of  construction from Kamloops to Kelowna. On  second thought this does not seem to be a feasible proposition. The Canadian Northern, like  the C. P. R., runs from the central point in the  Valley-to connect with the mainline. It carries  through cars, or will when it is in running. 11  could not be made into an electric line just for  the Okanagan. It does nol seem reasonable to  ask lhat the line bc operated by electricity here  while all through business over thc line is hauled  by steam.  What is really wanted in lhe Okanagan in  order lo rapidly develop lhe district, is a tramline1* system spreading out over the Valley from  a central assembling point���������������������������say Vernon���������������������������and  lapping the important valleys Avilhin the Okanagan, giving rapid transit and, say, two trips a day.  or more frequently if required. The mainline  trains into the Okanagan help in thc development of the Valley; but the development is ancl  will bc slow, ancl much of the Valley will remain  non-productive for many ycars. As the Irishman  put it,' lie had no use for the railways: he lived  "lin miles away from it before it was built inlo  his district; he boosted for it, and talked to gel  il buill iiito his district; it.was built, and aflcr it  was built he slill lived tin miles away."  The point is-that, while an additional line of  railway into the Valley may assist in giving morc  ready access to market, and may open up lhat  certain section through which the road passes, it  never can bc the mportant factor in the development of the Valley that a system of tram lines  would be, opening up thc various valleys within  the Valley. _  The day may be somewhat distant, but wc shall  no doubt sec it, when tbe Okanagan Valley will  havc a system of inter-urban lines running from  Vernon lo the many districts now reached only  by wagon road: for instance, lo Lumby, thence  by way of Trinity Valley ancl Mabel Lake Valley  to Enderby and Armslrong and back to Vernon;  a circuit that would bring thousands of Ions of  produce where loday the district is not producing  hundreds of pounds.  With hydro-elect lie powcr available for this,  ancl for thc electrification of every town and  every farm and country home within the Valley,  ii is not unreasonable to hope that lhc movemenl  started at thc Hydro-Electric Convention '-will  bc taken hold of by tlie Government and thai  something worth while will come of it.

British Columbia Interior Store  had supplies to fill a normal denian, advised Iheir  local stores to restrict sales to individuals to their  average rate of purchasing, but not to raise their  prices. As tlie general public swung over to the  Co-operative stores, it became necessary for the  ollicials to instruct their stores to sell only to  members. There was another rush to become  members, so'that the stores hada temporarily to  refuse to take in new members until normal condilions began lo prevail again. The prices of private dealers continued to soar until in some cases  tbey were more than twice those of the Co-operative stores, and when thc popular agitation-for  regulation of prices came, lhc Government Otti-  cials;t because of the consistent stand of the Cooperatives, accepted the prices of the Wholesale  Society as the standard. - .'-���������������������������  ~"neceJssilyWlJoiIV oi V) 11 icr'and "iiTore "liscfnl^'TfrlcT  Few realize the imporlanl relation which Can-  ada'a wealth in water power bears towards reaping the full benefit I'roin hcr numerous other resources.

TRAM LINES FOR OKANAGAN  A great deal of valuable information was  brought oul al lhe Hydro-Electric convention al  Vernon last Thursday afternoon, particularly in  relation lo the possible waler power in lhe district. In the reporl of llie convention to be found  on another page of this paper, fuller detail will  be found in this connection. For the purpose of  Ibis article reference lo  tbe report is sulTicienl.  The main poinl of interest i.s Val lhere. is  ample waler powcr for electrifying lhe Okana.i-an  from  Kamloops  soulh.     The   next  point   lo   be  PLEASURES OF LAKE AND STREAM  Last Sunday sixteen autos were parked at one  time along thc,road at Mabel Lake and out upon  the lake, in boats, such as could be had', pleasure  parlies drilled aboul or were camped, along the  shore, all happy to gel away from town environment and out away with Nature and the things  of Nature's God. Particularly numerous were  Ihe children and young people, who enlivened  lhe scenery by their hilarious abandon as they  waded or bathed in the warm waters along the  sandy beach; some adrift on log rafts, some in  boats, and some splashing in the serf.  Here would' he made onc of lhc most attractive  pleasure resorts in the interior of B. C. if it were  more accessible for auto trallic. True, many enjoy the 23-milc trip from Enderby, even in lhe  present condition of the road, but thc number, is  small compared to what il might be if road conditions were belter.  The Mabel Lake road is not an easy road to  keep up. It was, in piaccs, poorly laid out and  poorly built in thc first place, and what little  worlHias-been-puHipon-it-has-not-becn-sumcicnU  to make much of an impression on il. ll is reported considerable road work has been promised for this season in this direction, bul be it  known, the road to lVlabel Lake, like the streets  of that other glory hole, arc paved wilh promises  all very good.  Another thing which lhe settlers of Mabel Lake  Valley have been praying for a long time, is thc  erection of a governmcnl lelehone line from Enderby. Tbis line i.s greatly needed, and, running  as il would through a district fairly well taken up  by settlers, il would serve a number of residents  along lhe way as well as the lumber camps near  lhc lake and Ihe lumber company's headquarters  it (he end of Ihe road. Petitions have gone in lo  .he Government for lhe erection of this line, bul  no attention bas been paid lo the request of lhe  petitioners. A few years ago the Governmcnl telephone line was buill lo parallel lhc line  then in existence of lhc Okanagan Telephone Co.,  from Enderby lo Vernon. There was about as  much demand for this paralleling line to Vernon  as (here would bc for two tails on a dog. At lhe  same lime there "was the demand for Ibis line to  Mabel Lake. It is to bc hoped the Governmcnl  will either build this telephone line to Mabel Lake  or induce lhe Okanagan Telephone Company lo  do so.

C  IT  PAYS TO ADVERTISE  WHEN CATTLE BLOAT  The danger to' the ' animal  from acute bloating is. not that  the "distended stomach may rupture, for such an accident ^almost unknown. The pressure  of the gas-distended stomach,  however, exerts a dangerous  pressure upon the heart and  lungs, with the result that animals dying from acute bloating  usually die of strangulation  through inability "to breathe  with their compressed lung tissue.  The stock owner should guard  against the bloating of his cattle  by every precaution at his command. Clover or othcr green  vegetation, if eaten when wet by  dew or rain, seem to bc especially liable lo ferment before  leaving thc iirst stomach of the  animal that has fed upon them.  Eating excessive amounts of  middlings or corn meal will also  cause bloating. It also occurs  in cattle as a result of becoming choked. The principal  cause, however, is over-eating  succulent gj con forage, such as  clover*, green corn or cabbage.  To prevent bloating in cattle,  the animals should bc shifted  hy easy stages, ��������������������������� from dry or  scanty   feed ' to   abundant   and  Bf      p- w  and luxuriantly growing-fodder  Thcy may be allowed to feed  from ' the good forage for an  hour on thc first day thej' arc  given access to such grazing.  A full hour may be allowed on  the second day, and hy continued slow - steps and <i>y gradually " lengthened stay .'in the  tempting feed1, the danger of  loss from bloating-will bc largely overcome". :-  But in case the first evidence  of a- too protracted slay in the  heavy growth of foragcshould  be that the owner notices one of  his animals with sides "distended  ���������������������������and, perhaps, even' lifted  above the-level of the backbone,  he must act quickly... Removal  of the gas from thc paunch will  quickly bring relief. If-a veterinarian is' within \ reach hc  should, be summoned atonce. If  a surgeon-is not available, "the  owner should. immediately attempt . to' .bring' relief "to his  animal.     - ���������������������������, _'V-- -y  r '���������������������������    :->-  Many cattle* owners keepV. a  trocar and caniija constantly on  hand and. ^thoroughly -understand its Use. - The trocar is a  sharp-pointed rod provided wi th  a /mctajic-, sheath or canula  wliich leaves the point of the  trocar exposed. The. spot to be  selected tor inserting the trocar  is a point equally distant from  the Just _ rib, the hip bone, and  the lateral bony projections  froni the spine in the region of  the loins- Jflcre a small cut about  three-fourth of an inch long  should be made through the  skin with a small knife, and  then the trocar" with canula attached may be pushed through  the cut into the paunch.' The  trocar, is then removed, allowing the gas to escape through  the canula. Thecanula should  be retained in place so Jong as  any��������������������������� gas-^escapes-^througlu^it.  Sometimes several .hours arc  ncccssary,and tlie canula should  be firmly tied in place. An  attendant should remain near  the animal, if possible, so long  as the canula is in tlie paunch.  If the animal is not distressed  by the bloating, and thc swelling  of the body is not great, or when  thc alarming conditions havc  been ������������������.cmovcd by the use of the  trocar, it is best to resort to internal medicine lo allay the formation of gas. Two ounces of  aromatic spirils of ammonia in  two quarts of cold watcr should  be given every half hour, or half  an ounce of chloride of lime  dissolved in a pint of tepid water may bc given every* half  hour, until thc prcssurc of the  bloating has been removed. A  dose of purgative medicine is  usually beneficial after the  bloating has disappeared. For  this purpose pne pound of Glauber's salts will usually^ prove effective. Care should bc used  in administering the fluid medicines. Take time. Do not hold  the cow's head too high. JKccp-  ing the animal's head raised so  that her nose is slightly higher  than the level of her face will  allow hcr to swallow without  interference.  "EVIDENCE OF PROGRESS  Amount of ..Painting Going On  is Good Sign of Prosperity  and Pride in the District.  The foundation reason- for  painting "is protection of the  thing painted. We should never  forget that.J But Xhcre is another  great reason for painting, and  that 'is the appeal of pride in  appearance.. This is quite human. It is seen in the matter  of clotlies. - Primarily clothes  are lo keep us warm, but a suit  is discarded while it is slill  warm because it is shiny, oul  of shape, or slightly faded. In  olher words, onc l'cels lhal it  would compromise their standing if thcy were lo wear il. So  it is with thc painting of houses,  bolh without and within.  Since Spring opened there has  bcen an unusual amount "of  painting and renovating of  homes and outbuildings in this  district. In progressive, proud  communities, houses are painted  every three or four years. Progressive citizens arc nol satisfied  wilh the looks of lhcir houses  after three of four years' exposure to weather-  As good citizens wc should  not only see that every person  knows that structures will de-  tcriorate if - unpainlcd, bul wc  should also try to make people  as proud of thc appearance of  their homes as lhcir morc progressive neighbors. This work  is peculiarly onc for local "cx-  ation. ''Everyone7 knows that a  newly painted house is likely lo  start the whole neighborhood  lo slicking up. It becomes  contagious.  Cherry Crop Nearly All Picked  Tlie hulk of the cherry crop,  says the' Summerland- Review,  is picked ./and marketed now,  and by the end of. the'present  week there will- not "bemany  more lo come excepl sours and  semi-sours- From various reports received the growers are  quite hopeful of good prices  again this season, and although  early in the cherry forma lion  period many growers feared  there would hc a very light crop  in sonic varielics, a heller crop  developed lhan was anticipated.  Short Potato Crop  ridispiitable  tatement  Reports IVcm every "section  are lhal lhc polalo crop of B. C.  is very short, running from I wo  lo four Jons per acre. ��������������������������� It will he  seen, before tlie season is oul,  lhal high prices will be paid for  spuds, and that Chinese growers  will wax fal. This_ is not an  unusual occurrence. Chinese  potato growers canol see any  farther inlo lhc future than thc  rest of us. But they reason in  a logical way- "Last fall potato  prices were low, and many of  our local growers pilled lhcir  crop ralher lhan accept lhe  fall price offered. This spring  when  lhc pits were opened,-it  Owing   to  big turnover   we buy our  stock at  less   than  usual ���������������������������  In consequence we sell for,less.    In fact, on goods  for which you pay ". $8.50  We sell i'or $4.80      .-  Some difference, to your loss - $3.75  It will pay you to investigate the above statement      *    "~  and compare prices.  G. J. WHITEN  Everything in Jewellery. Vernon, B. C.  was found lhal lhe price ex-  peeled did nol nialrialize, and  potatoes were sold on a declining markcl. Under Ihesc" circumstances, fewer growers put  potatoes in. If prices had been  high last fall and lhis spring,  more po la toes would have becn  planted; lhere would have bcen  a larger crop and lower prices..  The Chinese growers plant potatoes every year. Thcy know  when while growers plant less  il-. is good business for them'to  plant more. Tliey study the  markcl heller lhan our white  growers.
