 a  nhv 9 ������������������������������������������������������  IN WHICH IS MERGED THE    ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY.  Vol. 13, No. 38, Whole No. 634.  ENDERBY, B. C.THURSDAY, NOV. 27, 1919  Subscription, $2 a year; 5c copy  Xdo Study Taxation  Problems of Province  Memebers ofo tbe local City  Council, in common with those of  other towns in the Valley, are preparing to meet Hon. John Hart,  minister of finance, when he pays  a visit to the Valley in the near  future, for the purpose of taking  up with the aldermanic boards the  question of civic taxation. It is  the intention of tbe civic officials  of the Valley towns to have a preliminarily meeting if possible before the Minister of Finance comes  so as to place before bim concrete  suggestions which they believe will  lead to amendment of tbe Municipal Act so as to give cities and towns  more to go on than tbe realty tax.  Minister Hart is beading a roving  commission���������������������������a taxation enquiry  board���������������������������which will compile in various parts of B. C. all information  available ns to municipal revenues  and tbeir sources and systems of  collection. It is a fulfillment of a  general investigation promised by  the finance  minister.  Saturday night Mayor Barnes and  Chairman of thc Finance Committee, Aid. Coltart, with Clerk Rosoman, met in committee and discussed the problem as it effects  Enderby. The question .is brought  to an acute stage by the new requirements to be asked for by the  Board of School Trustees for greatly increased appropriations so as  to meet the salaries of the teaching  staff under the recent demand. It  is understood that the- movement  for largely increased salaries is  general throughout the Province,  and is the result of the teachers' organizing as a union. The increases  asked for, in the case of Enderby.  total something like $1,600 a year  for three years. Presumably like  increases are to be demanded in all  Valley towns. This throws upon  the city councils the burden of  finding a way to meet this demand.  ^Unless thc Provincial Government is prepared to give more liberally to the support of the schools  or to relinquish, to, the municipalities othcr sources of revenue, such  as the personal property tax, part  of the automobile tax^ etc., the requirements of the schools will soon  add materially to the realty tax and  make the property lax so high as to  discourage owning property in the  towns.  In order to consider the taxation  problems from all angles, a convention of the mayors and aldermen from penticton to Enderby is  being held in Vernon today, and on  Friday niffht a similar meeting of  the associated Boards of School  Trustees will he held to discuss and  decide upon a line of action in  dealing with the demands of the  school  teacher**   association.  fjQtmtme Returned Men  Fifteen hundred returned veterans have been settled on the land  by the Soldiers' Settlement Board  ^in^Pritish-Golumbia.^fhis^niiinbet  accounts for those who have actually gone onto their holdings and  does not include a large number  who have had their applications  approved, or those whose applications are pending. In adddition  there are approximately 500 returned men working land under  settlement schemes such as exist at  Courtney and Creston. The report  of thc Soldiers' Settlement Board  for the week ending Saturday1 last  shows tbat since thc inauguration  of the Board at Vancouver seven  million dollars have been approved  for land purchase, expenditure for  stock and permanent improvements to holdings, the greater part  of which has bcen disbursed.  Mrs. PalPh Smith, W.P.P.  -A rare treat is in store when Mrs.  Ralph Smith speaks to the electors  of this district���������������������������at Enderby, Nov.  20th, in the Enderby 'flieatre, and  at Armstrong, Pec. 1st, in the Avalon Theatre. Mrs. Ralph Smith is  Canada's first M. P., being elected  by an overwhelming majority to  her husband's seat in spite of tbe  fact that she differed from his political tenents to the extent of running on an Indeoendent instead of  a Conservative ticket.  "I stand  for the co-operation of  the sexes," said she in a recent in  terview, "believing that the time  has come when nothing else will  produce the results we desire to  achieve. I am working for better  housing conditions, Mother's Pensions, the betterment of children's  conditions generally.and a levis'on  of "the educational system that will  meet the needs of these unusual  times. And I hope for the day  when women will have a place on  the floor of every Provincial House  as well a.s tbe Federal Parliament,  im order that their ideals may be  injected into tbe life of our country and better���������������������������more humane���������������������������  legislation  may  result."  it it it ii SC X X it X X X it X X X  55 MAK A  NOTES X  55 55 55 55 55 55 X 55 X 55 55 55 35 55 55 X X  Andy Zettergreen came up from  Vernon to spend a few days' vacation and stayed over for the dance.

Pavlos is having an addition  biiill to bis store to be used as a  butcher shop, which will be much  appreciated, especially during the  summer months.  X  All details of the Christmas tree  were decided at a public meeting  on Monday night. The date chosen  was Dec. 23rd. Now the kiddies  have something to look forward to.  X"  The children are busy practicing  for their concert on the 12th of  December and from tbe various  bints that arc allowed to be given  out it will bc well worth attending,  especially as a dance is promised  afterwards with the full band.  X  The dance last Friday^ proved  a  big success. Auto loads came from  Armstrong, Enderby, and Grindrod  and many "compliments were paid  to the local committee on the fine  time they had, especially on the excellent music provided, with* the  well-known line dancing floor added. The committee are anticipating quite a boom in social gatherings this winter to make up for the  past few years, and they: are preparing to meet the demand."  A MA LGAM ATION  QUESTION  Important Meeting of Farmers  to be Heid to Hear Discussion  and Deride if Institute will Go  In with United Farmers.  Enderby Hospital  Nurse McPherson acknowledges  with thanks the following dona-  lions to the hospital: Anglican  Church, Mara, vegetables; Mrs. p.  H. Murphy, box of apples; Mr. A.  Reeves, hot water bottle, drugs and  surgical supplies; PiVll. W. Jveitb,  hot watcr bottles; Mrs. Gray, Mara,  butter and game; Miss Lang, magazines; Mrs. Walker, Jellies.  Gratuity for Jmprials  Imperial veterans are elated.  Gratuity forms for them to fill out  reached Vancouver from Ottawa  tbis-week-,=and-Jt=is_announcedJ'hat.  these will be completed as early as  possible so as to enable Imperial  soldiers who were resident inTan-  ada before the war, to get a gratuity equal lo that paid to.members  of the Canadian Expeditionary  Force.  After witnessing the phenomenal  success recently won by the  United Farmers of Ontario, it is  dillicult to understand why some  farmers still question the efficacy  of combined organization. Yet  they do.  ���������������������������  It is difficult to understand, also,  why some fanners will persistently decline to support their own cooperative selling organization and  instead place their confidence in  and turn their produce over to, an  independent buyer who is here today and away tomorrow. Yet they  do. And, too, inspite of the fact  that they "get* caught" as regularly  as the seasons come and go.  A meeting of the Northern Okanagan Farmers' Institute, and all  interested, will be held on Monday,  Dec. 8th, to discuss the question of  the Institute amalgamating with the  United Farmers of B. C. The meeting will be held at Enderby, and  will be attended by Mr. Copeland,  president of the U. F., Mr. Brown,  a prominent members of both or-  and Mr. Howe, prominent members  of both organizations, of Vernon,  and Mr. Chappie, of Armstrong,  secretary of the United Farmers,  each of whom will speak on the  question.  This is an important meeting and  should be attended by every farmer, who is interested in the advancement of his own industry.  xxxxxxxxxxxxxx*  X GRINDROD.

ARMSTRONG BRIEFS X  xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx  A request for a pxiblic meeting  has been made by a number of citizens to Mayor Wright, to see what  might he done to better the electric  light service.  Mrs. A. R. Warding and daughter  came in on,Friday from Victoria  to spend a few days with Mrs. Harding's parents, Mr. and Mrs. A.  Schubert, before leaving for New  York, where they will reside in  future.  Owing to potatoes having been  frozen in the ground by the early  touch of winter a few weeks ago,  it is expected the crop will be very  light and it is feared they will  reach $50 per ton this winter, and  this figure may be exceeded.     -  Messrs. Fred and James Hitt left  o^Wwln^dirF'foT^tlten^honid-i n  England. During the years which  the boys bave been residents of  Armstrong they have made many  friends, whose best wishes for  every success go with them to  their home beyond the sea.  Mr.   R.   Ronald   Gibbs   left   this  week for England, expecting to be  away until May or June.  ���������������������������    ���������������������������    ��������������������������� X  Theo. Adams and Offie Jones got  a deer a few days ago -while hunting over the hills east of Enderby.  X  Mr. Wm. Huflman is visiting the  coast on legal business. He exT  pects to be absent a month or more.  X  Miss H. Mainwaring has accepted  the position of stenographer at the  office of the Okanagan Saw Mills.  X  Perhaps the man had no business  kissing the pretty girl, but no one  will deny the "pleasure of it.  X  Mr. and Mrs. Jas. F. Murphy returned from the Coast cities last  Friday, where they enjoyed their  honeymoon.  X o  Mr.Geo.Jarvis, of Ransack, Sask.,  was in Armstrong last week, and  while here purchased 10 acres of  the J. Lewis place, Knob Hill.  X  Mrs. Ralph Smith, M. -L.

Don't miss the  "Fighting Roosevelts" Friday nigfc1.  X  Mr. P. H. Murphy was called to  his Eastern home.last week by the  sad news that a brother had been  seriously injured in a burning  accident.  ���������������������������     X  Inspite of the recent report to  the effect that the sugar shortage  would be over by the 1st December  word now, comes to retailers that  the December allowance will be  smaller than that of November.  *  "Jack". Simms returned to Enderby last week to. take up again  the plumbing and tinsmithing ;of-  the Fulton Hardware Company. Mr.  Fulton is laying his plans for a big  increase in business next year.  . Two shifts are working on the  planers at the Okanagan Saw Mills  in an effort to supply the growing  demand for finished lumber. Tbe  trouble now is that cars cannot he  supplied to carry the lumper to  market.  Good use is heing made of the  Prill Hall since the Enderby Veterans took charge of the building.  A number of athletic classes are  being started which will probably  lead to a permanent athletic association for the youpg people heing  formed.  Every marketable brick in the  kilns of the Enderbv Prick & Tile  Company has been cleaned up, and  Manager Gibbs is preparing to start  brickmaking on a larger scale with  the opening of spring. The demand for Enderby brick far exceeds the supply.  Jack Funk returned from Vernon  last   Friday,   where   he   was   confined   to    the    hospital   for  .three  weeks by a fractured leg.    "0  X  The announcement that the United States will take the embargo off  wheat and - wheat .'-products will  open a new market for the Canadian product and the price will  be something over ������������������3 a bushel instead of $2.15 the price fixed for  Canadian wheat by Ottawa.  X  Enderbyites will remember Wm.  Embrey. He went 'overseas and  was invalided home. Recovering  from his illness he succeeded in  getting on the Vancouver police  force and now Officer Embrey's  name frequently appears in the  daily press in connection with the  police news.  X  A more pleasing entertainment  could not have been given than that  provided by Miss Nickawa,the Cree  elocutionist, in the Enderby Theatre last week. Her work excells in  clearness of thought "and expression, <and an earnestness that goes  with the desire to serve in one's  work or art. Mrs. Peacock assisted with much appreciated solos,  and Miss Hartry's piano playing  was a surprise and a treat to all.  A meeting of fhe Enderby. District Victory Loan Committee was  held last Thursday-evening for'the  purpose of closing up the business  of the campaign. So satisfnrtori-  was the result of the Drive that it  was decided to give a banquet to  the campaign canvassers, the purl  pose being to get the workers together for a good time. The banquet will be held this (Thursday)  evening at the King Edward Hotel.  Wre wonder if the chairman of  the Board of W7orks ever focussed  his eye upon the-need of a sidewalk on the east., side of-Vernon  Road from Cliff ������������������street to the  Okanagan Saw Mills office?. This :  office is, - one might-say, in-.the-  heart of the city, one block" froni  the main street, yet to get to it,  when the weather is soft, oner must  either gooselstep a toe path .or  pussy-foot the wheel-tracks of the  muddiest portion of the' muddiest  roadway in the city. This is not a  creditable showing.  -    . -'.  ayeoi/*rtsY orc.PR  r  H. R. H. set sail for England on Monday, Nov. 24th  Mr. F. H. Rarnes and A. W\.

It is two-stories and basement, and fitted with all modern  conveniences���������������������������just such a home as  Mr. and Mrs. Rogert should have in  their reclining years, who have  labored so faithfully in building  up the fine piece of property thcy  now have.  *  Pon't miss the big show on Friday at the Enderby Opero House,  when the story of the life and work  of Theodore Rosevelt will he  shown in the dramatic film "The  Fighting Roosevelts." This picture, which bears the ex-president's  personal endorsement is full of  punch and thrills. Comedy, pathos,  suspense and action combine to  make this picture a dandy. There  will also be a big comedy.

Jf we are to judge by the various  actions that have been taken by the  Government and its officials to put  down the high cost of living, says  the Montreal Witness, we can'~onlv  conclude that it is the farmer whn  js the profiteer, for nearlv rv"--  action to reduce prices hits him.

To lower pi"  price of shoe leather it stormed t^c  export of hides; and so, by limiting  the market, spoiled it, decreasing  the price, for live cattle. A set  price for export cheese has hurt the'  cheese market, and now tbe d���������������������������������������������'���������������������������"  against hogs find ho* nm'i'i������������������'c rj"  ruling of the commiss'opp-c  hog products are to be sol"-' p' i1--  price ruling in March of this year.  As the index number of hoc products in March was 341 and 431 in  August, it will be seen that the reduction demanded is no less than  20 per cent. Poes anybody for a  moment suppose lhat the packers  are going to lose that 20 per cent?  If so, they must be simple. The  packers are highly organized, efficient men, not in the habit of doing business at a loss. They will  immediately pass on J the decreased  value of pork to the farmer in  such a way as to permit them to  declare their regular dividends.  They can easily do this by merely  refusing to buy hogs until the price  has so dropped that, they can  slaughter them and sell the products at the commissioners' new  price, while earning their ordinary  profits and taking a little extra for  anv loss that they may sustain in  selling stocks in store.  11   \;l ������������������a^  OKANAGAN   COMMONER  THURSDAY, NOV. 27, 1919  .ait  ���������������������������vr;iinOHt4-  .flVJ*!:  cl The Enderby Press and Walker's V.'ifi  rsiiay at Endcrhy, B.C.,   by Tii������������������  Wr.!"-:������������������������������������������������������>��������������������������� I'vi  per year: Slaw six month*.

Tupper, K C.B.,  C.V.O., who wus hiicccoded in November, 19]8, by Rear-Admiral C. W.  Koighiey Peach, under whose flag  she terminatPu hcr commission as an  Armed Cruiser.  The Squadron to which she was attached, and later became Flagship of,  consisted of 24 vessels, the majority  oi which were Armed Mercantile  Cruisers. The duties of the Squadron consisted of the stopping ,of  vessels, boarding them and examining their papers, and should cn examination they prove to be at ail of  a suspicious nature, a Naval Officer  was placed in charge and they were  taken into a United Kingdom' port  for closer examination. This similarly applied to any members of the  passengers or crew, as each and  everyone had to givo a satisfactory  explanation as to their nationality  and business. , Available recoids  show that in all the Squadron intercepted some 10,000 vessels, but it is  impossible to state how many of  these proved to bc engaged in work  hostile Lo the Allies' interests.  In the early part of 1918, circumstances permitted of Lhe 10th Cruiser  Squadron being considerably' reduced  in nunibeis, and vessels so'engaged  being allocated lo Convoy Protection  Duty, the "Alsatian" figuring  amongst the number and being stationed on the North Atlantic route iu  such capacity. While so engaged ihe  escorted nine convoys of about 20  vessels each, carrying an estimated  number of troops per convoy of 30������������������-  000, principally Americans.  While engaged on^Convoy Escort  duties the "Alsatian" also carried  troops o and cargo, the number of  former per voyage being about 600,  and the weight of cargo per voyage  between 2,000 and 3,000 tons.

Dear Sir: The article in your recent issue, a reprint from the Farm  and Ranch Review, should he an  eye-opener lo your readers who  have heen in the habit of charging  the high cost of living up to the  farmer, particularly so among city  dwellers, taking their cue, no doubt  from packers and dealers in provisions and all kinds of produce,  as well as merchants and business  men in every town and cily the  country over." They have to place  the blame somewhere, and the farmer always comes in handy for  that sort of thing.  We have heard, often, that comparisons /ai'e odiou:|, buj| if the  ligures and conclusions in this article were revised and brought down  to dale the result would be more  startling still.  Let's look at the matter: First  let's hike tlie <|ueslion of feed. The  writer ligures the price of feed at  l2VnC If fucd of any kind, except  bran, can be bought in Alberta I'or  2VjC per pound, or $50 . pep ton,  then wei have becn well soaked  lie re when we bought it. For tlie  past three months or more feed has  cost us���������������������������shorts, barley>������������������aml oals���������������������������  chop or mixed���������������������������3'XiC per pound, or  *(>:*> per ton. Oat feed���������������������������a mixture  of oat husks and shorts���������������������������about the  same a.s corn chop, 4l/>c, which js  prohibitive and which would bring  cost of raw material alone wiih  the suckling pig, $35.-15. On the  other hand, the net price of tiie  liifished hog i.s fixed at 18c, or $30,  whereas the price of hogs has not  been so high as that for many  moons, even in Calgary, where the  price was $15.75 last week, which  would amount to $31.50. Deducting fhe price of the 200-lb hog fioin  the cost of the raw material, the  farmer has had the company of  this hog and the fun of feeding him  for 17-1 days, and faces a loss of  $3.95, instead of a margin of $5.50  as in the published article.  This is no imaginary case���������������������������the  facts and figures speak for themselves. Everyone knows the price  "of feed; a lot of.farmers who sold  hogs only lasl week know what  they gol foiv.them. Let them balance  up and find out how lhcy came out.  Compare the results with 50 per  cent for selling a pair of shoes, or  $20 for selling a 50-dolhir overcoat,  a.s one. fellow admitted,: and see  which looks, like profiteering.  This serious state of affairs���������������������������for  it is a serious matter���������������������������Is the direct  result  of  appointing men  on  commissions   to    investigate   the   high  costs  of living, wilh  power to enforce    their    demands���������������������������men    who  know    nothing   whatever   of   farm  conditions,  or  cost  of production,  any   more   than   thc  writer  knows  about   navigation.     It's  doubtful   if  O'Connor    could    teii    buckwheat  from barley.    He is about on a par  wilh  llie  fellow who wojld  buy  a  hydraulic ram to head his Mock of  sheep.    Al  the same time they arc  drawing   $26,000   of   the   people's  money.   They have done four times  lhal amouni of damage to the live  slock   interests  already,   demoralizing the'pork  industry.    Hy prohibiting export of cattle to the States  so  a.s  lo keep  the  herds at home,  from    which   to   manufacture    $1J������������������  boots,   they   have   given   thc   catil<  trade a black eye.    Tlie milk trade  wi IIrN heH arger^ci ti esH s-=i n=j ust=a -  deplorable   a   condition.     Lots   ol"  fanners who sent milk to Toronto  and. other places' last summer were  obliged to get out at 4 a.m. in order  lo   have   their   milk   ready   for  lhe  train,   running   on   fast   time,   and  were  threatened  with  a heavy  fine  and  imprisonment if they persisted  in  raising lhc price of milk.    Willi  lhc result that lots- of them are going out   of  the  milk   business  and  are   patronizing  cheese   and   butter  factories,* which,   of   course,   will  only  increase the price of'milk  to  tiie   consumer.      Lots    of   Ontario  farmers, many of Ihem well known  fo   the   writer,   have   been   raising  hogs to the limit of their accommodation all through the war, arc disposing of their breeding stock, all  hut one sow.    One man.wilh about  six  sows   lo   farrow  this   rail, says  that  unless  he  can   dispose of the  young pigs* al weaning time he intends knocking Ihem  on the head.  He'll  do  il,t oo, a.s, with  all kinds  of   feed    at     present    prices   they  would   cat   their   heads   off   before  the.v readied 1501b weight.  J. D. McGregor, of Brandon, a  farmer and stock breeder on a large  scale, says that il i.s doubtful if  there will be enough hogs raised  in Manitoha for the use of the Province. !Ie says a man i.s a fool who  will raise and feed hogs with feed  al present prices, and slill going  ui), while lhe prospect for hog  prices lower still. Prices for fed'  and   watered  hogs has  dropped   9c  on the Toonto market in l������������������ss -than  four months, and about 7c. here  since midsummer. ������������������������������������������������������ '"VV-V   !  .We havj been urged eybr since  the war broke out, by all the: powers lhat be, great and small;/.and by  every newspaper- in the: land, to  produce more iuid still "more, Especially, meat animals, ,and. farin  products of every kind, and every  boy knows, or shotild know, thjat  more production is the only remedy for the high costs of living..  By that I don't mean $15 boots, and  $50 to $05 all-wool suits, without a  particle of wool in their make-up.  I mean food products of all kinds,  so that every man, .woman and  child shall have enough to eat,  which lots of them do not have at  present. But to turn a man like  O'Connor loose, with license to destroy at his own sweet will, industries that have cost the sweat and  brawn of every farmer in the; dominion, can end only one .way.'" As  sure as night follows day, we shall  see Ihe cost of living (food products)  go higher than ever.  J. ..II.
