The exacting demands of the new  Municipal Act constitute the piece  de resistance with which, the Enderby City Council grappled until  after midnight at the last meeting.  There appears to be'some difficulty  in arriving at a form of by-law satisfactory to the Municipal Pepartment of the Government. The inspector wrote detailing a number of  changes required to be made in the  by-law adopted by the Council at  its last meeting, and it was referred  back to the city solicitors to endeavor'to bring the by-law.into line  with  departmental   requirements.'  Applications' for wafer sdr^ice  were received from Mr; Piper'and  Mr. Poison, the houses to be served  being located in Poison addition'J,  some distance from the present  water mains, and as no further ser-'  vices can be allowed on the small  iron pipe now laid in that locality,  to-give these services would require  the laying of rf regular wooden service main, at'a cost of twelve or  fourteen hundred dollars, and from  which . the services .applied for  would bring in a revenue of only  $36 per annum. __ To lay the main  would require the borrowing by the  city* of "the amount necessary,' and  to issue bonds- the" city ~'must"first  get permissnon from the Provincial  department 'fqf Municipal ���������������������������* Affairs.  Th'e^applications were laid over.' _ .  S ,������������������A-gf ant~ of, $5Q" was -made, to ������������������the_  Board of Trade/.The^Couhcii.Nvhiie  gratified-.at the efforts being made  tbdcvelopa band, felt that the majority of-the-members are learners,  and, as a musical organization, the  band cannot yet ma*ke any return to  the.public, and therefore, in,view  of the many other demands the city  has to meet, the" Council did not.  feel justified in extending the aid  asked for at this*" time.

Mr. Barrow, minister of  agriculture. It was the .unanimous *  opinion of the directors "that the  $������������������,000 or $7,000 which the department would be required to spend  to defray tbe expense of this proposed government picnic could be  more cconomicably used in the  improvement of government roads  in thc Province.  It might be pointed out, that  should the meeting be held, and the  decision arrived at that thc many  agricultural organizations should  be merged into one united body,  the new organization would have  to follow practically the same lines  as the United Farmers or B. C. have  followed, and thc directors feel it  is only wasting'time beating about  the hush when the United Farmers'  organization or Canada is already  in existence^ and doing business  under what is practically the same  system adopted by the organization  in the other provinces of thc Dominion.

In a speech at Vancouver a few days ago, before lhc Board of Trade, Premier Oliver stated  that, inspite of the fact that his Government had  found it necessary to increase the tax levy of  the Province 100 per cent lhe pasl ycaiya further  increase of 40 per cent would "have to be, imposed  this year in order to meet the expenses of his  Government.  Taking this statement of the Premier as a text  lor his remaks at the public meeting held in tlie  Opera House, Enderby, Saturday night, Hon. W.  J. Bowser, leader of the Opposition in thc Provincial House, denounced in uncompromising  terms the extravagance and incompetence of lhe  Liberal administration, which, hc said, was responsible for thc increase of taxes awl the unpleasant position in wliich Premier,Oliver and  his colleagues now find themselves.  Mr. Bowser was given a very attentive hearing,  and his remarks relating to thc increase in cost  of operating thc government machinery were  loudly applauded. Thcrc was a large crowd out  lo hear the Opposition leader, and his forceful  language in explaining the causes leading up to  the need of increased taxation won a. sympathetic hearing on thc pail of thc body of lhc audience.   .  Mr.- Bowser first referred to lhc handicap of  thc Brewster Government, which, he said, went  into power pledged to abolish .patronage and lo  reduce thc cost of operating Uie government machine. Not only had the Government completely  failed to keep its pledges but on thc contrary the  patronage list had been increased far beyond that  of the old government, with greatly increased  cost of operating through incompetence, and less  satisfactory results.  When the Brewster government went into  power, he said, the first thing they did was to  employ expert accountants to go over the records  of the old government in order, if possible, to  find proof of somc of the charges of corruption  which had been made against the Bowser administration. This investigation had cost $18,220,  yet thc report of the expert accountants employed  by-the Government had never been tabled in the  House and.the general public never was permitted to see it. "Why?" asked Mr- Bowser, "because the report proved nothing against thc old  administration." -    -   . V  , It was promised, he said, by Liberal speakers  in"-thc last Provincial election, that royal commissions would be abolished if they came into  power. Here again, lhe electors had been deceived. In two years of power, royal commission appointed by thc JLiberaJ Government already had cost the people $30,000.  Another election pledge was that government  by "ordcrs-in-council" would be abJished. "Po  you know how many orders-in-council have been  issued by the present Government in the little  time thcy havc "been in power?" as^ted Mr. Pow-  scr.  "Just 4718."  ^Another election promise was that patronage  would bc abolished. Pretending to do so, the  Civil Service Act was passed in 1917, but it was  not enforced until 1918 when Premier Oliver was  compelled to do so by the returned soldiers who  marched to thc Government Building and -demanded ils enforcement. "Why was the Civil  Service Act net' enforced?" asked IVfr. Bowser.  "Because thcy wanted to first get rid of the old  GT)v*crnm^  followers, who were installed before thc Act became operative."  Mr. Bowser here gave the figures to show, how  salaries had been increased and additional appointments made, all of which meant heavier taxation upon thc people in order to meet Government requirements.  Additional departments had been added by thc  Government, all at increased cost. There was the  Department of Labor, at a cost of $65,000 a.year;  and the Department of Public" Utilities, at a similar cost. Then, as an example of the way other  established department had been loaded up, the  speaker cited that of the Agricultural Aid Act,  which, under thc old regime was handled by three  practical'men. who al a cost of $7,320, loaned to  farmers $788,000. -When' the new Government  came into power, llie members of the old board  were dismissed by wiping out the law under  which they were appointed and passing an Act  creating a new board, with six ��������������������������� members instead  of three. In lhe* two ycars of work, the new  board, at a cosl ol" $28,160 had loaned under thc  Agricultural Aid Act, only $165,000," against  $788,000 by lhc old board at-an operating cost of  $7,320. This, lhe speaker said, was another  reason for tiie high  taxation.  He then referred to the soldier settlement  policy of lhc Liberal Government, under which  no returned men havc yet been placed upon the  land.- His reference lo the Brewster writ created  much laughter; also his rcmaiks on thc seaplane  experience of thc Government in forestry work.  It cost thc Government $9,613 to get new_furn-  '#<?������������������?  _*3>  ^���������������������������������������������������������������������������������J  ishings for thc ministers' offices when they came  into power;.77..automobiles have been purchased  at a cost of $63,714, and one seaplane to fly the  forests- and put out-fires, cost $8,570.  ..'  He told of the Government being "worked" by  a prominent Liberal of Victoria, the proprietor of  the Liberal newspaper, who had "a "run-downJ'farhi  on the Island which he presented to the Government for a period of five years to be used for the  returned men, to be worked and the land brought  back its fertility. This, he said, was the vyorst  scandal made public in Victoria against thc Government. It was so bad that thc land was given  back to thc owner in less than two ycars. It was  then discovered that only two returned men ever  had becn on thc place, both of whom quickly disappeared, and thc work on the place was done by  four, Chinamen, paid by thc Government.  Mr. Bowser gave the figures to show thc heavy  increase in the overhead cost of conducting thc  Government. The cost jumped nearly, $300,000  in 1918 and it now" costs nearly $1,000,000 morc  per year to run the government than itvcost under  thc McBridc-Bowser regime- Compared with thc  cost in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and  Ontario, the cost in British Columbia is now one-  fourth of the total revenue, received from all  sources-for all purposes. In Alberta, Saskatchewan and Outario thc cost of administration runs  only as-high as 4Vo% of thc total revenue, while  in British Columbia at thc present time it is as  high as 25%. Thc cost of upkeep on the Govcrn-  men automobiles alone is $25,000 a year.  Last year the Government employed 67 political workers���������������������������some of "the boys" to whom reward was coming for work in last campaign���������������������������  at a cost of $50,600 to the ratepayers. They were  employed as "special assessors" in the various  districts of thc Province. In this district, said  Mr. Bowser, the "boy"���������������������������Mr. Worthington-^re-  ceived $694 of thc $50,600.  Referring^ to the tax sales held by the Government, the speaker said it cost $43,000 to collect  $102,000, and hc cited instances to show how  little was gained for the expenditure. In one  district it cost $220 to advertise the tax sale in  the Liberal paper, and $209 was collected; in another the cost was $1,600 to advertise and $&64  was collected; in another, -the adventising cost  amounted to, $8,800, and $7,053 w;as the'amount  collected; while in another it cost $10,400 to advertise to collect $4������������������,237. . V : V~ ,.-���������������������������  Referring to'.the Pinlaycase and'the Government's connection therewith, Mr. Bowser characterized (he whole thing as one of the most scandalous "jobs" ever perpetrated on the people, ffe  said the prosecution of finluy was clearly framed  by the Attorney-General to cjefeat the ends of  justice. It was wc\\ Known nt tbe coast,, be  said, tbat there were higher-ups implicated" with  finlay in the liquor steal and croojeecj worH connected therewith. He said the sale of liquor by  the government bad increased from . $J^,500 a  monlh when the Prohibition Act came into force  to $50,000 a month now. He saicj the total sales  of liquor by the Government since prohibition  came into force amounted to $318,577, while expenditures by the Government for this amounted  to $338,266. 'showing a net loss of $J9,000. "PicJ  you ever before hear of whisjey being retailed at  a loss?" asked Ibc speaker-  According to Mr. Bowser the Government has  borrowe^_$776907dOOTin two years. This year ex-  penditurcs over receipts will show a deficit of  $3,100,000. The total indebtedness of the Province has increased $15,693,000 since the liberal  machine came into power.  He said there was still thc inclination on the  part of thc Government to increase the overhead  costs of administration by creating new departments and adding more men lo old departments,  and then demanding increased taxation froin thc  people to pay for it. In every district in the Province, he said, the same increases in office staff  are complained of. In road work there arc three  or four road engineers to bc seen before any consideration can be bad for any road complaint or  application for work. In almost every department thcrc is the same multiplication op assistants���������������������������all political appointments.  The amendments tb the Municipal Clauses Acl  are creating serious trouble, and may lead, to  complications not yet thought of. Every city,  town and municipality in thc Province is wrestling wilh lhc problems created by the new Act.  Mr. Bowser said the Act was rushed through Parliament at lhc last moment, when its proper .consideration was out of the question. None of the  Opposition members were in a position io givc  il the required consideration" when it was brought  down, and it was'railroaded through at the dicta-  lion of the Government leaders.

CANADA'S FOOD PROBLEM  That lhere is a shortage of food in the world;  that Canadian prices are regulated by demand  abroad; lhat there i.s no greal surplus of food  supply'in Canada; that lhc citity of Canada is  food production for the benefit of herself and lhc  world; lhal the governmcnl may present a proclamation loVegulalc thc cost of living, and lhat  TYdcr this caption thc Ottawa Veteran, official  organ of the G. V- W. A. of Canada, makes these  significant reflections:   "By midsummer," it says,  "Canada may be plunged into the throes of a revolution.    Powerful forces are at work with the  avowed    intention    of    overthrowing    constitutional authority and replacing it with Soviet rule.  Plans arc being elaborated which seek to sweep  aside established law and order, and carry  the  "Hcd" flag triumphantly from Vancouver to Halifax by 'any means which justify thc end.'   Tirelessly lhc propagandists of Bolshevism arc working.   Despite thc surface calm and outward signs  of pence and quietude which prevail, disturbed  only by occasional rumblings of unemployed discontent in   thc   larger   cities,   Canada   i������������������   at lhis  moment in imminent danger of the flames of anarchy which   havc  spread  so  rapidly in Europe  during thc past six months.   Embers from thc intermit len I fires of rampant socialism  arc being  zealously fanned lo white-hot heat by revolutionary 'labor leaders' in Vancouver and elsewhere,  in   the' hope   that    sparks    may   ultimately   scf  ablaze a Dominion-wide prairie fire which will  blot out existing landmarks of social, economic  and industrial order.    Thc propaganda coin mil-  Ice appointed al thc recent labor convention at  Calgary  is,  and  lias  been,  assiduously carrying  out its purpose by everv means humanly possible.  Thc Cabinet is fully alive lo the'situation.   Were  lhc public to bc made acquainted wilh  lhc full  significance  and   gravity  of   the   silualion,   The  Veteran is convinced lhal a Avav'c of alarm, and  even panic, would seize lhc counlry which might  well precipitate calamity.    These statements arc  made with a full sense of responsibility, and wilh  knowledge of actual facts.    It is our intention lo  combat lo the uttermost limit Lhis clement_ of "anarchy, which seeks'to destroy the national lifc-of  Canada, and sel up in place thereof the unspeakable iniquity and chaos of blind revolution, led  and controlled by fanatics.who seek an autocratic  power morc devilish and inhuman lhan the-lust  of the Huns.

This ferm e nation is caused by bacteria, and, in their growth  acids are formed wliich attack the lime salts which compose  the bulk of the tooth structure.  A considerable cavity may be formed iri the tooth before its  presence is made known by a toothache.     Then   thc  dentist  is/  obliged to perform a long, difficult and often painful operation.  Twice a year visits tp a dentist, having the -cavities filled  when small and before thc tooth is badly injured, saves much  in time, trouble and expense.  .DR.

ARMSTRONG'S LOCAL AUTOMOBILE  ASSOCIATION JOINS VALLE1 CLUB  Some 15 or 20 automobile owners gathered in  the Council Chamber of the'Cits; Hall, Armstrong  last Thursday evening to consider the question of  mer������������������in������������������ the local Automobile Association into  the larger Vallev club,.now fairly well established  with local committees acting in each locality in  conjunction with the parent organization with  headquarters at Vernon.  Mr Patten was in the chair. There were only  4 few members rof the local association presenl,  and the chairman remarked that he thought the  club "had become defunct, and advised action in  the direction of joining up with the larger club  in order to become more effective under one  bcul He said he had not felt this was thc thing  to do until recently. He first favored hanging on  to thc local club, but was now convinced this  would be bad policy, and advocated thc larger,  broader organization.  Mr. Fletcher spoke along similar hues, also  Mr Sa������������������c Mr. Henderson, president of the Oka-  pagan Club, Mr- H. Heggie, vice-president, and  Mr Stuart Martin, secretary-treasurer, were in  attendance to answer any question that might  arise in connection with the parent organization.  Mr Henderson explained briefly lhe������������������g.vncral objects of the club, which wcrelo promote a belter  community feeling throughout' thc dislrict, and  to develop a broader spirit of unity and good-  fellowship throughout the Valley, by frequently  getting together, sometimes alone town then at  another; and in a practical way work harmoniously for the general welfare and Interests of  all; not only by securing better roads, but by a  closer observance of each sections needs and requirements. V ~ 7~  e    , %.  Mr Heggie spoke in a very happy vein of what  it Avas hoped to accomplish through the organization ancl on request read the constitution adopted  by the club at its organization meeting held in  Vernon. He emphasized the general remarks ol  thc president, and suggested that wc forget sectional lines in a larger effort to work out bigger  and better things for thc Valley as a vJiolc.

It-is.the intention to make the schedule  games more than usually attractive this season,  in the hope of winning back the sharp old-time  rivalry between the teams and; to recreate the  local spirit in sports, which for a time was lost  through a tendency to play professionals from the  coast on the teams in order to win. It is felt that  now the war is over and local boys are coming  home, there will be ample material to draw from  to make Okanagan players,.and that this spirif  can be reawakened and kept alive by excluding,  so far as possiplc, outside players in thc Valley  League games.

Her father, was a violinist and her mother a singer with an I  usually sweet; rich voice. ^Mrs. Norton's ambitions chafed at tho liraitatj  of village life; she wanted broader opportunities for thc development of J  children, so when Lillian was six the family made its gladsome exodus fj  Maine to Boston, the Mecca of her dreams. I  The future, prima donna early revealed the promise of her wondeJ  voice, and the mother of the transplanted family laid, aside money fro'mP  boarding-house for the, musical instruction of her daughter. From twelvl  fifteen "Lillian studied at, the Boston ,Conservatory, with Prof. John O'NI  who condensed the five years'course into-three. When her interest flaggel  the, slightest she:was stimulated to'new energy by her mother, Nwho leaP  her daughter's parts in order to teach her, worked untiringly and saved]  ally'fof the new goal of instruction. - .L  Lillian was growing in power and courage.

Tietjens 1  charmed, nobly captivated, and'became her friend. She advised her tj  to New -York to study with Maretzek. The devoted mother was.equal.to "  new emergency; she met the occasion with. her. customary high finance; si  -.;borrowed ancl otherwise secured enough money, for-a two years' stay inj  metropolis, where'she* watched tenderly over her beLoved daughter.-, L  ������������������������������������������������������ On completing the two years, when funds were ebbing and hopes ll  ing; Gilmore heard the Finger and "engaged her* for a hundred concert!
