CANADIAN CITIZENSHIP  THURSDAY, AUG. 28 1919  CONDITIONS IMPROVING  Conditions in thc Okanagan were never better  than now. Business is improving in all lines;  crops are good and prices high. If dilliculty has  been experienced by somc in readjusting from  war conditions lo peace, these dilliculties soon  will he overcome. Homeseekcrs are coming into  the Okanagan in numbers greater than ever before, and they arc buying homes right and left.  Returned men are also locating here in large  numbers; many already have bought, and others  are looking about for suitable locations. Froin  the Prairies many farmers have conic. They are  locating more generally in and abouf Enderby  arid Armstrong, where the land is better adapted  for dairying and truck farming. Several piaccs  have changed hands within thc past month in this  vicinity and other sales are now pending.  There can bc no epicstion as to. the safety of  buying farming land in this vicinity of thc great  Okanagan; A crop failure was never experienced  here. When other districts bave suffered severely  in drought ycars, we in the Okanagan have had  good crops, and there has been no scarcity of produce in anv line.  f AEE OF MONEY  Instead of watching the high cost of living, the  people of Brilain are today watching with hated  brealh lhe fall of the pound sterling. And here  is Ihe rub. II isn't that the cost of living has gone  up. The real trouble is that the value of money  has come down. The dollar or lhc pound sterling  will not buy more lhan one-half as much as it  did before Ihe war- And thc-value of money cop-  "linues to fall. Money is the cheapest thing in the  world today. It is the only commodity that has  not held its own in tbe trying time through w|iic|i  lhe   world   is   passing.    Twenty-five  cents  some  ' years ago would purchase more than one dollar  will buy today.  =i====;=^\\-cvieaii=ineasure^lhe-dccliiicHnMhe^vahieiotL-the  dollar a.s we mcf sure the rise in the cost of living.  ll i.s interesting, therefore, to read in the Canada  Labor Gazette that the average cost of a list of 29  staple foods in 00 cities at the middle of July  was $1.5.77, as compared with $13.72 in June,  0.1513.00 in July, 1918, and $7.42 hi July, J9M.  This is a big subject.    We admit at the start  that wc perhaps do not know any morc about it  than you, dear reader.    So all we intend doing is  to direct your attention to thc subject. A few days  ago five thousand men and women of Winnipeg  met for thc purpose of bringing about a permanent   organization   of    "the   Canadian    Citizen's  League."    The purpose is to give permanence to  thc Gitizen'iS Committee which played such an important part in the recent Winnipeg strike, and to  place the organization on its feet as������������������a Dominion-  wide Committee for  the purpose of service in  time of need whenever and wherever called upon.  With due regard for the good intentions of the  promoters of  the organization,  and  with  some  knowledge of the good work.accomplished..by* the  Committee in the trying times of the industrial  strike, there is.much to be said in favor of such  an organization as is proposed.   And, yet, on the  other hand, it is not a proposition that will appeal  to all.   There is something aboul it that sets one  part of the community against the othcr; something of the Pharasec in its claims and purposes.  The objects' of thc proposed league are good,  however, for they arc "the inculcation of the best  Canadian  ideals;   the cultivation   of respect  for  Canadian law; the proper maintenance of constitutional  government  and  the combating  of  all  forms of propaganda tending lo subvert our established Canadian institutions"  While these objects arc good, it does seem a  bit ludicrous that in these days, aflcr all these  ycars of established government in Canada, a  body of intelligent men and women should really  feel that a national association for lhc inculcation  of these ideals is a necessity. The great trouble,  seems to be that a very large body of Canadian  citizens have fallen into the error of believing thai  all law and government is a somewhat sacred  thing, quite above reproach and criticism. This  has been lhc opinion of the censors employed  by the various governments during the war days,  but this opinion is rapidly changing. These people are led away by tliis thought; thcy believe  lhat any word of criticism of lhc law or the established order'of things is an act of disloyally,  and that the culprit giving expression lo bis mind  should be banished forthwith.  'i t  Under-autocratic rule in law judges are delegated to act for the King. With us in Canada the  courts and thc governments act for thc people,  judges and government ministers also be wrong.  It is ludicrous for any person or number of persons to set up the cry that, the courts or the government must not bc criticised by the people. It  is, moreover, a dangerous and foolish notion. Our  courts and thc government must bc watched,  criticised, regulated and restrained by public  opinion. Free criticism is. the one safeguard  against an arrogant, slipshod and dishonest bench  or a vaccillating crooked government. For its  own good a court and a government should welcome criticism, not repress il: We in Canada  abide hy flic decisions of our courts; wei island in  defense of the government in power, but the man  who thinks he lias been wronged by a court or by  the government should have the privilege of saying so-.  >  -New Fall Merchandise  Arriving on Every Train  i���������������������������  -!  \ Every day something new is shown in Fall Goods.

In the past, and it is so today, there have  been severe penalties imposed for cpiestioning the  justice of thc laws���������������������������laws��������������������������� were supposed to be  sacred things. And any man who expressed a  doubt as to thc righteousness of certain laws was  assumed to be the enemy of the state and was  speedily dealt with. And yet wc all know that if  some men had not questioned the justice of the  law and defied the law, there would be today no  such thing as freedom. Thc saviors of thc world  have all becn law-breakers. From this it must  nol bc assumed that all law-breakers are saviors.  However, progress springs from doubt, and until  men arc dissatisfied with the present order there  ���������������������������is nothing better for them in the future. It is in  Ihis fact, and thc general turmoil thai is going on  Ihe world over, that wc can hope for belter laws  and belter conditions in thc future.  Mosl  people  are  unhappy because   they  wear  themselves out hunting for happiness.  A meeting of the provincial directors of the  United Farmers of Rritish Columbia' was held al  Kamloops on the 23rd, with the following members present: Messrs. Geo. Clark. Sidney; .1. L.  Pridham; Kelowna; W. E- Chappie, Armslrong;  Walter Shipley. Canoe; C. W. Greer, Kamloops;  .f. ]\. JJrown. Vernon, and W. E. Smilh, Revcl-  stoke.

Favorable discussion followed and amalgamation of  the two bodies was cordially approved- The resignation of W. fL. McTaggart as secretary-treasurer  was reported by President Copeland. Mr. .1. f\.  Brown of Vernon was elected to succeed him.  It was thc opinion of all members of Ihe provisional directorate of thc associstion that such  an amalgamation of the organizations named  would prove most heneficisl to the best interests  of the farming commimily. This, too, is the  opinion of all farmers who havc given the subject  any thought. Thcy see in the multiplying 'of organizations covering the same field great loss of  effort and weakened cohesion.  SETTLERS FLOCKING TO CANADA  Since the beginning of the year, 15,434 settlers  have entered Western Canada, bringing with  them, according to ollicial records, money and  personal property valued at $8,572,893. Of this  number Manitoba secured 2001, Western Ontario  429, Saskatchewan 502G, Alberta 6154 and British  Columbia 592. Almost all of the immigrants are  farmers with their families. Many of Ihem are  taking homesteads, while some arc buying improved farms.  The majority of these settlers were from   lhe'  United Stales, while  many came  from  England  and other friendly European countries.  <  CHECK TWEEDS  Very smart checks in tlie dark colors; excellent j  for Suits, Skirts, etc., also I'or Children's > wear: j  width, '10 inches;  Price    Sl.!)f) yard   |  KIMONA CLOTHS  A beautiful quality Eiderdown Cloth, soft a.s  pure wool, Stockingelle /back; colors.

REEVES  Drugs and Stationary  Subscriptions taken for any  magazine /  Ollicials of the Soldiers' Civil  Re-cstablishment Department,  who are in close touch with industrial conditions throughout  British Columbia, regard the  labor outlook on thc Coast as  anything but promising.  In conversation a "syitli the  "Province" Mr. G. H. Dean, unit  director in British Columbia of  the S.C-R.,,pointed out that thc  situation here is greatly aggravated by the fact that many  thousands of men returning  from overseas have elected to  take their discharge in this province instead of returning to their  former homes, lt is estimated  that the total number of men  to be taken care of will not be  far' short of 00,000. While a  number of these men bad situations open to them, ancl others  have  already   been   found   cm-  {iloymcnt,  there will  remain  ax  arge number for whom, under  present conditions, employment  is not available.  Iii Mr. Dean's opinion, the  duly, solution of the problem lies  in the initiation of an extensive  program of public works, far iii  excess of anything yel proposed  by the authorities. Hc regards  the outlook as serious for the  coming fall and winter, and is  anxious that the situation and  peculiar conditions existing in  this province should bc clearly  understood at Ottawa.  Rumors arc current that a decision has been made by the Dominion government * to extend  the period. of gratuities on a  hiodiiicd scale; equalizing fo a  large extent the further amount  to be paid.. While this may relieve the situation somewhat for  (lie  time being it is  not  con  easier, probably than for. some  months past, the lot of the  skilled, mechanic and semi-professional man , shows no improvement. There are .opportunities for employment as laborers  on railroad construction and  othcr work of this kind, but this  is not attractive to a skilled man  who has his family in one of lhe  citites, and lhere are a large  number of men in lhis class a I  present without prospect of  work.    .  CROP   CONDITIONS   POOH  Latest Winnipeg Report Indicates That Recent Rakis Improved Growth in Some Parts  The latest Winnipeg "Free  Press" crop report published indicates that in the sixteen days  which havc elapsed . since lhe  previous report conditions in the  prairie provinces have changed  materially for the better in some  sections and for lhe worse in  others. Wheat in the wesl is  virtually two weeks ahead of-an  average harvest since 1905. As  seeding was not exceptionally  early it follows that the crop has  not conic to harvest under normal conditions in any of the  provinces. ������������������  In Manitoba only a very lew  points report no rust, and the  majority complain of rust damage running from 5 to o() per  cent., though heavy damage is  reported from limited areas.  It is evident, however, the report states, that thc bumper crop  which was so fully indicated at  the end of June has been reduced from live to ten bushels  an acre, and some districts even  more- This damage is by no  means all attributable lo rust.  though that disease-is-responsible for the greatest loll, but the.  unusually hot days from July 17  to 20 had their serious effect.   A  feed, iv: number of Points report lhal wilh a-conlinualion-of  the presenl weather lhere will  even be suniciei.it \'qq<\ to carry  them through the winler.

In Alberla the long drought in  lhe soulh has been broken, the  heaviest genenul rain in years  having fallen. It came too late  to help any crop excepl laic oals  and llax, bul il will do untold  good in producing feed for slock  and place land in good condition  for next year. Edmonton districl reports a possible average  of -10 bushels o!' wheal, bul the  average i.s nol large; Erskinc,  2.1; Lamonl, 20. and Munson,  20. Oulside of Ihesc points reports indicate vields of from two  lo Id teen bushels, wilh live lo  seven a common average. Coarse  grain crops are light, some  points reporting thai they will  be cut for feed.onlv.  *\.  -tn.

REEVES  Secretary  multitude of people in all classes  seem to think lhat wc can best  meet the situation by huge new  expenditures, restrictions upon  induslry and reduced production.  A year ago we all looked  to  the,era   of  reconstruction  with  apprehension.   Wc believed that  it would .be'dillicult lb turn the  industries* from Avar production  to peace production, and that we  would do well il' wages could be  maintained and munition workers   and   returning  soldiers   reestablished in civil life wilhoul  a period of serious industrial depression-     We   recognized   thai  without economy in private and  public   expenditures,   and   sympathetic    co-operation    between  the  workers  and   employers   to  increase   production,   thc   common   burden   would  be intolerably heavy, and sooner or later  a  situation   which  dismays   the  countries   of   Europe   would   bc  created in Canada.  Bul. instead ol" economy, we  havc "waste and extravagance.  Instead of industrial unity and  stability, we have unrest, disorders and tumult. Instead of  co-operation to maintain wages  and increase Production we have  conflict and paralysis in various  branches of induslry and demands upon employers and  upon thc public treasury which  threatens general disaster if  wiser councils do not prevail. In  tlfe press there is exploitation of  grievances and indiscriminate  denunciation of capital. In Parliament there are few speeches  which   reveal  understanding  of  or  ,������������������ppiy  tin  the true situation  lessons of history to the coiuH  tions which we cannot escape.  There is little said to inspire confidence and much lo destroy confidence. There is free and justifiable denunciation of "profiteer-  Now is the time  to order your supplies  for the Preserving Season  We have stocked heavily in all sizes of Sealers:  E-Z, Economy, etc. All kinds of tops avail-  able., Order early and avoid being disappointed should the supply become exhausted.  is lhe enormous demand which  war conditions created. Of these  profits a heavy percentage goes  back  into   the public  treasury.  The     abnormal     demand     of  Europe has forced prices upward  in Canada���������������������������but could we deny  supplies to lhc stricken nations  ofThc   Old   World   or   control  world  Prices.?     There  may  be  companies  which hold food in  storage to  the disadvantage of  consumers, and for these stricter  regulation is necessary and legitimate.   But we cannot afford to  be stampeded by mere suspicion  and  denunciation.     During  the  American  Civil  War  prices  of  food    rose    tremendously,   and  Canada benefited.   But in those  days tlie packing house was in  ils infancy and thc causes wliich  we    now" think    explain    high  prices did not exist.  No one suggests that the farmers of Canada havc raised Prices  by any illegal manoeuvre or  secret combination, or that they  are blameworthy because thcy  sell at war figures. But thc conditions by which they havc profiled havc benefited classes of  labor and many manufacturers.  Thc supreme object of governments which fixed wheat prices  and prices of war supplies was  not to benefit farmers or manufacturers, but to get production,  feed thc armies and sccurc nc-  cessarv war materials- As Sir  Thomas White said the other  dav, with 50,000,000 people  withdrawn from productive pursuits there was bound to bc a  universal disturbance of conditions and Prices, and Canada  could . not avoid thc consequences any more than she  could avoid participation in the  war in Europe. But let us not  bv angry controversy and denial  of primary causes prolong the  evil consequences and tumble  the whole industrial structure  into ruin.  ������������������><  ���������������������������o<  The car of  quality at a  low price.
