It was the duty  of farmers, he held, to organize  every district thoroughly, to  hold regular meetings, to discuss subjects of national importance, to build up a democratic spirit, and justify our existence. At the proper time,  locals should ask central to call  meetings to take the necessary  steps to select candidates.  Mr. Humphrey told of the  early difficulties encountered by  the organization, but offset this  by referring to the present rapid  growth. Within the past two  weeks seven locals were organized in the North Okanagan  with memberships ranging  from 12 upward, and advices  from enthusiastic officers were  to the effect that they counted  on having 300 members in the  near future, with the possibility  of a membership of 7,000 in the  Province before the year 1920 is  out. The locals referred to by  Mr.-. Humphrey are.. Grindrod,  Mara, Salmon River .Bench,  Hullcar, Deep. Creek,- Enderby  and Grandview Bench;, Tliis-is usc  only, a start, as there are several svas majc. to  the  condition of  other   points, applying   .for   a the:roads as they.were found on  Reports and enquiries showed  thai a keen interest in the movement is being taken throughout  thc Province. New locals arc  being organized and old ones  strengthened. Thc spirit cof the  movement is abroad and good  results are confidently anticipated for 1920. From Saskatchewan and Alberta cheering  reports arc received, and good  results may bc depended upon  when the elections arc held.  Mr. Copcland reiterated what  hc has repeatedly said relating  to the glaring injustice to the B.  C. farmer in the matter of thc  fixed price for wheat in Vancouver, which is 4V>c a bushel  less than at Fort William. As  B. C. does not produce enough  wheat for ils own use, millers  arc enabled to buy up B. C.  wheat at thc reduced rate and  at thc same time save the difference in thc freight rate from  Fort William lo Vancouver.  But flour is no cheaper in B. C.  than elsewhere.  The benefits of stock yards at  Westminster were alluded to  and also of a supply of stumping powder to-be secured for. the  use of U. F. members.   Allusion  visit froni the' organizer.  Reference -.was made hr the  operation of the-Agricultural  Credits Act in BC. as compared  with New Zealand.

It is confidently believed, Mr.  flnmpbrey said, tbat the farmers of Canada will have a large  =representa tionHn=the^next=Fed  eral Rouse, and tbe farmers of  p.

It was said that a  member of the commission to  ascertain the costs of buttcrfat  had first to learn what buttcrfat  was before he could intelligently (if at all) deal with his sub-  Co-operation   was  dealt  got in touch. Some of their difficulties were explained. Next  the aims and views of the United Farmers had been learned.  The idea of lhe U. & P. S. C. is  to find if there is a common  basis for some action in concert.  Dr. K. C. MacDonald, M.P.P.,  expressed pleasure at seeing thc  interest which was being taken  in public affairs. II felt there  was room for criticism of thc  Ottawa and other governments,  but questioned if a cabinet were  formed of men now in thc hall  matter could bc placed in a position not amenable to criticism.  Thcrc is danger, he said, of our  facing a class warfare owing to  thc conditions of human nature,  but by wise counsel it is hoped  it may be avoided.

Oh the  whole a good spirit-of earnestness has marked the effort of  the school. , There are three,  classes   of  pupils  in   every - High  School. First, there, are-a few  who are determined if possible  to master each subject. _'They  arc in pursuit of Knowledge.  They lose neither time nor op-  ���������������������������portunity. They have sighted  the prize���������������������������preparation for life  ���������������������������and value it highly. In this  class you sometimes find pupils  of very ordinary ability, but  their splendid determination,  power of concentration,' and  force of character ensure their  ranking in the long run beside  their more brilliant classmates.  The second, and by far the larger class of pupils, are those of  average ability who d������������������ each  day's work largely because it is  required of them. Tbey are  satisfied if they * make a fair  showing  in   examinations.    They  do not evince, however, that real  interest in Knowing things  which impefis them to put forth  ^W^S^fk^^WS^a^MMVMM^^^AAAAAAMAAAMA*  y^^MWWWWWMMAMMMMMMMMWMMWMMMj  took its origin and Labor was small   number  which   is    con  trolled by habits of indolence,  neglect and procrastination. The  idea of completing lhc study of  a lesson as a preparation for the  next day's work, seems to be  foreign to lhcir minds. Such  pupils only drift along from day  lo day. Nothing is perfectly  learned. It is possible for these  pupils to do good work, but unfortunately, the habits of carelessness thcy have fallen into  tend to weaken thc powers of  thc mind to either acquire ot  retain knowledge.  The school alone has no system by which such defects as  indolence and carelessness can  be wholly overcome. There is  needed thc most hearty co-operation of thc home in thc effort  to correct thc wrong habits of  life the pupil has fallen into.  When this has been freely given  often wonderful transformations have taken place. The pupil by establishing his life for  a time at homc and in school in  harmonv with the right laws of  (study, finds himself, so to speak  It is usuallv then only a matter  of time till hc pulls up abreast  of those who seemingly had left  him far in the roar in the race  for knowledge. Let parents cooperate more with teachers who  have their children in charge in  an effort to find out and overcome the weak points, and  greater satisfaction with the  work of tbe schools will be a  certain result.

Assessed as Farm Lands  In connection with the newly-  enacted'Provincial laws governing assessment of city property,  a clause in Sec. 219 makes a  radical reduction possible in the  assessment of small parcels of  land within the city wliich are  used for agricultural purposes.  The clause referred to gives  to the Court of Revision power  "to fix the assessment upon  such land as is held in blocks of  three or more acres and used  solely for agricultural or horticultural purposes, and during  such use only at the value which  the same has for such purposes  without regard.to its value,for  any other purpose or purposes."  in an effort to meet this new  condition,, a special committee  consisting of Aid. Coltart and  Aid. Burnham,: was appointed  by the City Council to go over  the properties within the city  that could be classed under this  clause and revise, the assessment  to meet the requirement of the  Act. This work has been3done  and properties so classified will  be assessed this year under the  new clause governing., Values  will be greatly reduced in some  cases: ���������������������������     ~ ' -  Fatal Accident  speech.

The   United  Farmers  .were  non-partisan,   free  from  ' Government influence and independent. The Farmers'^ Movement was spreading rapidly in  Canada.

THURSDAY, JAN. 1, 1920  GRAVEL SIDEWALKS  The proposal submitted by Mayor Barnes at  a meeting of the council some weeks ago suggesting that the city should adopt some definite  policy looking to the construction of a more permanent system of sidewalks, and proposing that  gravel walks be laid instead of the narrow plank  ' walks "which require so much repair work from  year to year, has met with approval on all sides.  Of course, no action has bcen taken, or can he  taken until' the spring ot* 1920, but tliis year ought  to see Enderby. establish llie sidewalk policy proposed.   It has" unquestionable merit.  Who will be chosen as Mayor an 1 Aldermen  to give the proposed policy a start?    Mr. Barnes  is not disposed to take thc oflice another lerm.  Probably be could be induced to accept tlie position if it" were shown to be to llie best interests of  tlie town for him to do so.   The question of getting aldermen is also onc requiring earnest consideration, for wc understand none of tho present   aldermen   desire   to   stand   for   re-election.  Probably if  they were  given some assurance  by tbe.businessmen and ratepayers generally that  it is the general wish of the citizens that thcy go  into ollice again and proceed  wilh  the general  policy mapped out by Mayor Barnes in his eom^  munication to thc Council .thcy' could he induced  to take up the work another term.  Any task undertaken in thc interest of the  public is mbrcorless a thankless one, an<i particularly is this true of the. positions of mayor and  aldermen in a small town There arc more complaints than praise attached lo thc job. Here is a  chance, to let llie men who have so faithfully  handled the citv business lhc past year know'-that  their work has"been appreciated, and by expressing such appreciation perhaps thcy can be induced to undertake the responsibility another  term.  WHY NOT A CLEAN-UP ?  leaders before them have done���������������������������feeling the political,-pulse. Just now the political pulse feels  quite normal. What it will be a year from now,  or two years from now, may be quite another  story. If a period of depression, of hard-times,  of failure in business, is to follow the present  period of superficial prosperity the country is  enjoying, it will come in the winter of 1920 or  early in 1921. The politician that can look ahead  will "get in ahead of the slump." Premier Oliver  is not a political noyice. He knows when to jump.  And if we can go by the signs of the times, be will  conclude to appeal to the people in the fall of  1920. By that time he will.have demonstrated  the better part of his policy and the workability  of his legislation. What he cannot show by the  fall of 1920 he will not be able to bring out in  1921 for conditions will be less favorable. It is  a safe wager, therefore, that the next Provincial  election -will be held in 1920.  This Week's Special in Household Furnish]  KEEPING THE POLITICIANS GUESSING  It seems a cruel world this, for the politician,  these days of liberty so valiantly fought for on  the fields of Flanders.    Even in our own dear  Canada, thc politicians' bed of roses is not without' thorns.    It was this. fact, no doubt, that led  Sir Robert Borden to want to sluff the robes of  office  and  seek  thc high   timber  to  regain  bis  health.   But when he attempted to do so, his colleagues   became   much   alarmed,   and   in a day  or Wo Sir Robert, or somebody for him, reconsidered thc matter and decided to stay in office.  .  Anyone with an ear to tbe ground will not be  surprised that Sir.Robert was not allowed to quit  office.    Political leaders",  tbe financial interests,  manufacturers  and  profiteers,  do  not desire a.  change   at  Ottawa.      Sir    Robert  bas   gathered  about him men of both old political parties who  seem to be working hand in hand with the "big  interests,"   or   are   pliant   servants   of  the  interests which  are working for private  gain in  .conflict with public interest.   These men do not  want to have anything done to disturb existing  conditions.^  "."   A political  turnover is very much  needed in  Ottawa.    Not that Sir Robert Borden has failed  the people of Canada. In thc strenuous war years  be did valiant service for his country and Empire,  but  it  stands, to  reason   that  with  all  tbe  fat  contracts which were going during the war years  that there should bc created at the seat of government a  nest of profiteers.    It has been  tbe  history of all wars. It was so in the United States  in'thc-Civil War and the Spanish "War; it was so  in England in the African War, and doubly so in  the Great War.   And tbe only way to get rid of  this nest of profiteers is lo have a clean-up.   This  is Avhat political leaders arc afraid of.  Sir Robert  Borden took the right stand when be intimated,  that hc was going to resign.   Why didn't he do  so? Thc idea that Canada cannot fijid a man to  lake Sir Robert Borden's place is quite absurd.  Followers of any  particular, man. or bouse  of  faith always are carried away by this idea.    But  history is full of incidents where men of much  "grcaler^abllity^than^Sir^RoberMins^show'iiT^havc^  stepped down when thcy felt another man could  be  found   lo carry on  thc work,  and  thc.man  needed came forward and the change proved to  he just what was needed.    It is a  mistake, wc  believe,   for  Canada   to  continue  in   control   at  Ottawa the men who were in any way mixed up  in war contracts and the resultant profits therefrom.   We believe Sir Robert Borden recognized  this and' desired to bring about a cleanup.    But  he was overruled bythc ...political henchmen of ins  own and of the other party.  PROVINCIAL ELECTION IN 1920  Tn his address at Enderby some Weeks ago.  Premier Oliver playfully said he may know, but  Jie wouldn't tell, when the* next..Provincial election is going lo be- He and his party have two  clear ycars before them yet, hc said, and he left  tbe impression, though he did not say so, that hc  would not go to Uic people until his term of  office has expired. Premier Oliver said lie and  his cabinet ministers had been so busy doing  things that they found little time, to talk "politics.  He inferred that it would lake somc time for the  full working out'of some of the reform, measures  he had inaugurated and thcy would sec to it that  the people had a good understanding* of these  beneficial acts of legislation before he would go  to them for their endorsation and anolher term  of office-  Premier Oliver may be taken seriously on this  point or he may not. Onc thing i.s cerlain, hc and  his ministers are not. travelling over the Province  as they arc to tell this to thc people. Hc and his  ministers are getting in touch with conditions in  thc  Province,  and  arc  doing as  other  political  When the United Farmers'of Ontario wrere beginning to make themselves felt, and the Dominion-wide organization began to spread west, and  Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta were feeling ils -influence, and there was just the sound of  its coming in British Columbia, then it was that  the astute political move was made at Victoria to  check the growth of thc movement in this Province.   You will remember that a meeting of tbe  representatives of all farmer's organizations in  the Province was called by the Government to  meet at Smithers.    Thc meeting was held.    Al  this meeting a committee was appointed to consider the epicstion of amalgamation of the Farmers' Institutes with the United Farmers, the intention, no doubt, being that thc old-established  InstitutesVwould absorb the United Farmers.   It  was  decided  by  the  committee appointed  that  such an amalgamation should bc: brought about.  It wys a greed tbat tbe matter should be laid before the Institutes.    This was not done���������������������������by the  Institute head.    But President Copeland and his  organizers,  have placed the  matter before  tbe  farmers direct, with the result that everywhere  the proposal is meeting with favor.    There is  this difference, however.    Instead of the United  Farmers being absorbed by the  Institutes,  the  Institutes    are   being   absorbed  by   the   United  Farmers.   Farmers throughout the Province are  determined to join hands with the successful organization coming from the East.   They are ambitious.   They want to be part of an organization  all their own, free from party strings and all ties  of paternalism.        ���������������������������  It is interesting to see, ih view of the phenomenal success of the United Farmers' movement,  that another Smithers proposition is being  pushed by Victoria. It is now proposed to establish a "Council of Agriculture for British Columbia," with objects similar to those which were  back of the Farmers' Institutes. Tlie preamble  sets forth that it is the opinion that the agricultural interests of the Province require the organization of a central executive body, representative  of branches of agriculture and supported by the  whole body of agriculturists and the individual  associations now existing, to adequately deal  with all matters pertaining to the well are of the  industry. , ..',������������������.������������������-���������������������������  It is proposed to hold a convention ro Victoria  in thc month of February, when it is hoped to put  the Council of Agriculture upon its feet. How  far the promoters will succeed in carrying out  the proposition remains to be seen. Jt is just  possible, however, that interest in the proposed  executive organization is confined largely to the  few leaders who desire to bring such a body inh'  existence, and that the great bujk of agriculturists prefer to go along with the general United  Farmers' movement and confine their efforts to  what can*be achieved through the poroiiiion-  wide organization. Farmers are taking the stand  that thev, as a class, are as much entitled to organize in their own interests independent of Government action or Government coaching, as the  businessmen of any other*calling, and if wey  want a Pominion-widc organization it is their  business to,have it and aim through it to bring  about the better conditions they have so long  been trying to bring about. While much could  be accomplished through the proposed Council  of Agriculture if once established and Kept free  from party influence, it is doubtful if there can  be found in it the incentive that can be found in  btronting^tb���������������������������the-==Poininion^vide-=organization  aiming at political action as well as action along  co-operative lines. These are the very things a  Council of Agriculture would discourage, rqr  this reason we do not anticipate that any great  amount of enthusiasm will be aroused for the  proposition.-"*'Just now Canada feels the, need ot  a -change in existing political conditions and .it  docs not matter much how well any red herrin  may be camouflaged to draw across the path of  the forward political movement, it will hardly  serve to alter the course of events.  According lo thc Minister of Finance of Germany that country already has paid to the Allies  a great part of the 20,000,000,000 marks in gold  which is payable under the term of the peace  treaty, and by these payments the AUUes arc  morally bound to supply Germany .with raw materials and food stuffs.  The selective draft recently taken in the United  States reveals that there are" in that country 19,-  000,000 men of military qualifications." It seems  to us all countries arc making preparations for  war as freely as thcy are preparing for peace���������������������������in  spite of the war that was to end all wars having  been fought and Won by thc powers pledged to  preserve peace.

At Cassils, Alberta, 73 miles  ���������������������������west of Medicine Hat, and, J03  miles cast of Calgary, on tbe  coast-to-coast line of tbe Canadian  Pacific Railway an area of land was  taken up thiB year by a colony of  Seventh Pay Adventists from Washington <uu| Oregon. Tbey certainly  ina4������������������"nj������������������-a"8*plendld=coramunityr==^-To  my great surprise, niost of thero are  taking up farming for the first time.  There are professional men, business  men, clerks, teachers, music teachers, nurses, mechanics, .carpenters,  and representatives of several lines  Qf work. "A desire for healthful occupation; together with the necessary ambition to make money, bas  led tbem to settle in this country.  The" climate is delightful, the intense heat being usually tempered  by cooling -breezes.- Though the:  summers are short, the long daylight hours with- continuous sunshine, force the crop to early maturity.  I bave seen thousands of sheep  grazing in the prairies, the huge  herds of cattle and horses. ranging everywhere and the golden  harvests as far as the eye could  reach. Huge tractors do all the  heavy work.  - On account of the drought this  year, the creps on dry land in this  section have been almost a total fail-  8re. But on the Irrigated land,  ������������������ey have surpassed all expectations.  Tbis particular community has just  been holding its agricultural fair,at  Brooks, six miles east ������������������f here. The  exhibit of cattle, horses, sheep,  grains, alfalfa and vegetables was  certainly far above the average. This  Js especially surprising, as it represents thc first attempt at farming in  this section of the country.  The water supply for irrigating  canals here comes from the Rock-  ���������������������������ies, about 150 miles west through  the Bow River. At Bassano there  is an immense dam, costing three  ahd one-half millions.

They  oversee six mile* of ditch. The  farmer pay* the Canadian Government |1.25 an acre per year for tbe  use of the water.  The flume at Brooks, a great piece  of engineering work, is about four  miles long and 300 feet Wgb. ������������������  carries the water from one bill to  the otber, a distance of about four  miles. Tbe structure of re-enforced concrete cost over two million  dollars. Over twenty millions bave  been spent on this irrigation system  anid as much again will be* spent before it is completed.  A short distance east of Cassils is  the soldier colony; 50 ready^rnade  farms fenced, with necessary buildr  ings. and 50 acres of land broken.  These farms are sold to returned  v  soldiers on long term easy payments.  To the south is Taylor's sheep ranch  where they havc over 25,000 head of  sheep.      This    is only one of    the  many large sheep    ranches    in this  section.

KELOWNA  COUNTY   ASSOCIATIONS  Y. M. C. A. Inaugurating Territorial Idea in Planning for  More Efficient Work in the  Outlying Localities.  C. D. Thornton, territorial secretary of the Town and Country Department of the Y. M. C ^A., has  returned to Vancouver after spending some time in Alberta in connection with the completion of tlie  organization of the Rosebud County Y. M. C. A. Last July a convention at Olds decided to organize a  county association including Olds,  Didsbury, Innisfel, Bowden and  contiguous territory.  It is the policy of the Association other thing.  Mr. Thornton to investigate the  possibility of organizing a county  association  in  their districts.  "It Gets You There, It Gets You  Back."  Many are the stories on the  Ford, bul Hillsboro, Ont.; related in ils local paper recently  what it calls tlie best of the season, and lhc facts in thc case  are"true. Il happened in one  of thc leading churches of the  cily that the pastor took for the  lext of his sermon, "Retter  Church Attendance."  Thc paslor held thai the automobile has taken more people  away from the church than any  He concluded with  not   to   call  secretary   or  start ithe exclamation: "Tlie Ford car  operations until the budget for at  least a year has becn secured. Mr.  Thornton reports that the money  has bcen assured to finance the  county for two; years and he expects to have a secretary on the  tied in a few weeks.. The men of  the county arc very enthusiastic  over'the project, wliich is the first  to be organized in the province.  There are," however, on file,- requests0 from' more than ;: dozen  committee in Alberta and almost as  many  in.

Whereupon an old  lady in Ihc congregation begun  to clap her hands and moan,  "Praise lhe Lord!"  "What's lhc matter, sister?"  asked thc paslor.  "The Ford never went any  place that il couldn't make the  round trip, andJ I am, sure that  all of those people in hell will  be back," shc answered, "So  praise the Lord!"

Grave apprehenion exists in the  public mind as to thc significance  of it all. C. W. Peterson, in his  book, "Wake Up, Canada^' published last summer, has the following to say on the subject of political parties and classes in Canada: "... The. present political  situation in Canada is absolutely  chaotic. Old affiliations. have���������������������������been  ruthlessly sundered. New problems  of public administration are arising almost daily. . . . . The  whole political horizon is, to say  the least, obscure. Class organization is proceeding with rapidity  and "political views are slowly  crystalizing. For'the first time in  the history of Canada, there is a  distinct tendency towards the multiplication of political parties on a  basis of organized effort. Class  consciousness is unmistakably developing in Canada, and will of necessity exercise a tremendous influence upon the political situation.  The old pattern politician refuses  to view the matter seriously. The  party hack expects history to repeat itself, but those who have  their ear to the ground realize that  the day of the- "ins vs. outs" is  gone. . . . Both the old political  parties stand condemned at the bar  of public opinion."   '  We hear a��������������������������� great deal" about  "class politics," in connection with  the new movements But what sort  of domination .has Canada labored  under in the-past? Consulting  "Wake Up, Canada" again, we find  a schedule setting forth the occupations of parliamentary representatives in Canada. It is shown [that  out of a total of 880 legislators,  222 lawyers. As there are 5,000  lawyers in Canada, it seems clear  that.a class representing less than  one-fifteenth of one per cent of the  population,, monopolizes 25% of  thc total parliamentary representation, while the farmers, representing 5(5 per cent of the population  and 75% of the voting strength  enjoy representation of less than  18 per cent. Wc al.<-. liiiii that the  business ani* prr.fes*i<������������������:������������������.d" classes,  representing, less than 17 per cent  of Canada's population, have over  81 per cent of representation in  our Provincial and Federal Parliaments. We find then, that for a  period, of fifty years the farmer has  suffered an infinitesimal per. cent-  age of the population of Canada to  administer the puhlic affairs of the  country and to legislate for him,  while he himself has taken T������������������o  considerahlc part in: puhlic affairs.  The present pojiticalcle ��������������������������� velopment  is merely an unmistakable decision  on his part to end the existing  state of affairs and to try his hand  at administering the affairs of the  country. "  jveep Wfor* Poultry  , Poultry of all kinds will he: a  greater factor for economical and  satisfactory living on the farm;  than ever before, says tbe. Farm  and Ranch Review. With tbe current bisb prices and scarcity ������������������f  pork, beef and mutton and cured  meats cut of the reach of tbe average consumer poultry should be in  great denu������������������nd. Those who have an  abundance-of^poultry-mayJLvc^re^  gardless of higher prices of fresh  meat. Every farmer's., wife who  has a large flock of pullets for  winjer and early spring laying is  fortunate. Eggs, in addition to  helping save the high cost of living  at home may supply .-considerable  cash with which to enjoy many  comforts and conveniences that  otherwise would not be available.
