THURSDAY, MARCH 4, 1920*  Subscription, $2 a year; 5c copy  United Farmers Decide to Have  Nothing to Do with Proposed Council  All delegates returning from the  United Farmers' convention are  pleased with the results of the meeting and express confidence in the  ability of the men at the head- of the  organization.  The convention Tefused to accept  the proposed Provincial Council of  Agriculture idea which seems to  have been, fathered by old-line politicians with .the object of checking  the United Farmers.' movement.  A committee representing the  United Farmers and Farmers' Insti--  The farmers', attitude toward the  Council of Agriculture, constituted  as it would- be like the spokes of a  wheel with a council of five or seven  the centre from which the various  farming groups would outshoot, each  on their individual status, is that it  is merely a scheme to "kill" the independent growth of the United  Farmer movement. ���������������������������  So it was decided to have  nothing whatever to, do with it other  than to -send a representative, not a  j delegate, -to     the     sessions     held  tutes was organized' to take  up the ,and    ,have~   him     report    back     to  question of effectually amalgamating  the two societies under the United  Farmers' banner. This committee  will wrok out a plan this year.  It was also decided to refer the  Question of joining the Canadian  Council of Agriculture to the Un'ted  Farmer Jocals to allow each local  to  vote on  the  question.  From remarks of United Farmer  delegates who are also members,.of  Farmers' Institutes, the latter body  allegedly responsible for creation of  the proposal to *form an agriculture  council, is slowly but certainly being  strangled by the advancing weight  of the U. F. movement. The Farmers'. Institute, largely because of its  system of government control," several speakers emphasized, "has forced the farmer to 'tag' along, never  getting anywhere and- being satisfied  "to send a batch of resolutions to the  government which are alertly pigeonholed and forgotten."  the body of farmers. In short, it  means a year's hoist to the movement, for it is specified that the executive may not act on any report  from the representative.  "Give it a twelve months' hoist or  a twelve years''hoist���������������������������that suits me"  said an Island delegate, and that appeared to meet the wishes of the majority. -  ^  It was suggested that tl?e council  would be formed without the United  Farmers, but that threat had.no effect. ;  "Let 'cm go to it," said several  voices, in unison, "they won't have  the farmers, and a council of agriculture so-called-, which includes men  representative of the man who delves  in a back lot, cultivates a chicken  or two, or keeps a rabbit, is surely  not going to . be |recognized as a  council of agriculture, with the real  agriculturists  standing aloof."

He intends remaining  in  this district  for  the summer.  Mr. Thos. Dagg of Lacombe, Alta.,  came in oh Wednesday. Mr. Dagg  was a one time resident of Armstrong and is in on a business trip.  There will be a regular meeting  of the Armstrong branch of the G.  W. V. A. on Friday, March 5th, at  8 p. m. All members aTe requested  to attend.  Dr. C. D.

Andrew Glen an4- Wm. Anderson,  two of Enderby's delegates to the  United1 Farmers' convention, _ contracted the Grippe while at the coast  and have been confined to their  homes the past week.  Teece ~& Son recently received a  carload of farm machinery from the  Wassey-Harr'3 people. They report  business unusually good in this line,  the machinery going out about as  fast as it is received.  That Enderby needs an isolation  ward in the hospital is conceded by  all. An effort Is to be made this  year by the Hospital Board to build  it. It is estimated the amount required  will  be  $2,500.  Owing to the illness of Messrs.  Crehan, Mouat & Company of auditors, the financial statement of the  city of Enderby has been held up  a full month. It will be printed  next  week  by  the Walker Press.  Copy for the April-to-October  telephone directory is now in the  printers hands. The directory will  be pulbished the first week in April.

Settlers in the Mabel LaKe-Trin-  ity Valley district are again calling  the'attention of the superintendent  of roads to. the pressing need of a  road from the Trinity Valley bridge  west to the locations of John Olich  and Frank Miska. These settlers  already have built a great portion .of  the road required, having it now in  use, but are unable to reach the  Trinity Valley road owing to their  'inability to build a quarter of a  mile of road, on the side hill.  XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX  X   * MARA NOTES X  XXXXXX XXX X X X X X X  Mrs. Green was a passenger to  Enderby Saturday.  Miss Winnie Collinson paid a visit to Vernon on FridayV  Mr. and Mrs.rCadden went down  to Armstrong Monday.  Mrs. Pavlos was called to Spenee's  H. B. Thomson, who as food controller for Canada, was forced to  study the agricultural situation  "from fche ground- up," has this to  say of the results of his investigations:  If it were announced in the press  of the province that the Dominion  or Provincial Government had voted  an additonal sum of $20,000,000 for  expenditure in any one year, there  would be great enthusiasm displayed  by the people at large. Yet this  amount of money is yearly going  past our doors, and we as a province are not alive to, or taking advantage of, the situation.  I refer to the basic industry of  agriculture, and the following figures  will give one some idea of what is  needed to be done to meet our own  requirements in British Columbia,  apart from any export business we  might do.  The amount of agricultural products imported into British "Columbia during 1919 from other parts-of  Canada was as follows:  Livestock'   . . $3,418,960  Meats   1    2,2901527  Poultry   products           834,298  Dairy,  products    3,328,728  Grain  and  products0 7,676,876  Hay          727,246  Canned   vegetables   and ������������������  fruits,  etc       133,194  $18,409,835  From points outside of Canada we  imported . into British Columbia  $4,314,313 of agricultural products,  making a total .in. all of $22,724,148.  It is fair to assume, that at least half  of the.products.shipped from "points'  outside   of   Canada   consist   qf  such I cured  in Canada  Bridge   through   the   illness   of   her things as tropical and citrous-fruits,  The C.

Jt was decided to have a social-on  Wednesday, March 10, so that we  can -meet more of the settlers, and  it is hoped that other locals in the  district will be on hand to join us  in a social evening.  Florence and Etta Zettergreen  paid a visit to Enderby on Monday  to see their nephew in the hospital.  Tfiey= weiiJf"th rou glf"t o^th er=coast^ o n=  Tuesday night. We are sorry to  lose them as they have helped our  local dances this winter, but we hope  to see them return later.  The regular meeting of the U. F.  was held on the 1st Inst, and was  very interesting and instructive. The  delegate's report was very full, and  Mr. Blurton was tendered a hearty  vote of thanks for same. There is  a growing interest in these meetings  as the objects become better known,  several new  members joining up.  xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx  x gwnphop NOTES X  X X X X XXX * X ������������������ X X X X X X X  Mr. and M-s. Parkhurst were  visitors to Grindrod for a few days.  Mr. and Mrs. G. Wells and son  were in Armstrong on business this  week.  Mr. and Mrs. G. D. McEwen have  gone to Vancouver for an indefinite  period.  Mr. Wm. Monk, a delegate for  the convention at Victoria returned  home this week.  Mr. and Mrs. Bentz and three  children returned to th ,-lr home at  Red Willow on Saturday.  Grindrod has had many of its  residents sick this last few weeks  but we are glad to say all are now  well or nearly  so.  etc.,'and that the balance was for  produce which could have been grown  in British Columbia. Therefore the  statement is not at all extravagant  when we say that twenty million dollars' worth of agricultural products  could be raised in British Columbia,  and keep the' money at home if we  developed our farming industry. We  have the climate and the land. All  we want is the people who are willing to work, and make a good home  and a living in the country.  There is" a great and' "dangerous  tendency today for people to crowd  into towns, and keep within walking  distance of the movie picture shows,  and the bright lights, and the result  is, if any slackness of trade or industry comes we have hard times and  -many^sufferr'whereas^with^the^poput-  lation on the lands of British Columbia, which are so peculiarly favored  both in fertility and as regards climate, the depression would not be  felt3, as the farmer can raise nearly  all his own stuff, and, as has been  shown "above a great market for  $20,000,000 every year is waiting  for him.  Those who have experienced the  wniters of Eastern Canada- and t'he  Central Provinces can appreciate  what a great advantage the man on  the land has in British Columhia. tin  can practically work all the^ year  round, and his livestock can stop out  of doors all the time, and- rustle a  considerable percentage of their  food.  We all know how well the Canadian farmer rallied to the Empire's  call during'the. war, and in spite of a  reduction in man power of approximately one million, as 600,000 went  overseas, and about 400,000 were diverted into munition and other activities for making war material, yet  the record' shows Canada increased  her exports of foodstuffs to Europe  in the following ratio:  1914.15 $187,011,300  1915_1������������������    332,455,900  1916.17   482,619,400  1917-18  .710,619,409  If this can be done once it can be  done again, and in face of such a  record it seems easy for British Columbia to feed herself from our rich  lands arid raise $20,000,000 worth of  foodstuffs we now import, and what  a difference It would be to the people of the province to have this.  money paid to them instead of having to pay it out to the other fellow.  In case anyone should be nervous  about overproduction" after we have  supplied our own and our neighboring provinces' requirements, there is  a huge market in Europe waiting for  the Canadian farmer. The British  market demands enormous supplies.  Russia shipped to England in 1913  ������������������3,831,366 worth of butter and  ������������������4;745,289 worth of eggs, and as������������������it  will take a long time for Russia to -  come back into the production and  export business, Canada has a great  opportunity to take her place but .  upon consulting Canada's present export figures a tremendous speeding  up process will have to take place.  There should be a great opportunity for honey in British Columbia  but on consulting the figures we find ���������������������������  we imported $27,221 last year. When  we- fill our own requirements the  English market can take $250,000-  w'orth a year, so there is an encouraging field, for the bee-keeper.  During the time of food control, it  was interesting to get a viewpoint on ;  our situation, and it was astonishing/  to have to issue permits for 100 to /  150  ton  lots of  raspberries  in  pulp-,  from Tasmania^'to be landed at Van---.  couver, to be made into jam:in Toronto fand Hamilton   to    fill    United ^-  States-and" British ' array " contract's;* *'  because the fruit could not be pro-'  This - condition"  should rapidly change,    as    British * -  Columbia has no peer-in the world  for  fruit  production.

The company that supports the  comedian this season is conceded to  be by far the best that has ever  toured Canada under the Oswald  banner, each artist having been  carefully selected for his or her  ability to get the most out of the  part assigned.

Canada is now exporting to other  countries according to Dominion  Government figures, $14,000,000  worth of furs and skins in the course  oi" a year, and a number are brought  ba.ck into the country .purchased by  Canadian dealers at foreign sales and  resold to Canadians. The value of  furs and skins exported during the  fiscal year 1918-1919 was $13,737,621.  Oi these $9,743,464 worth went to  thc United States, $3,763,955 to Great  Britain, and $230,202 to other countries. Some1 extent of the values to  wliich these exports have risen can  be obtained from the fact tLat the  value of the export of furs and skins  i;i������������������ 1917 was but $5,837,383. During  the month of March 1919. fhe value  of these exportB was $2,080,704 as  compared with $1,420,168 in the corresponding . month In 191i. It has  been estimated that eighty p������������������r center the silver foxes,of the world come  from  Canada.

REEVES,  Secretary-_  NOTICE  To Lena Clermont, of thc City of  Vancouver, in tlio Province of  British  Columbia.  Take Notice that on the 4th day  of March, 1919, a writ was issued  out of the Supreme Court of British  Columbia, at Vernon,- T3. C, against  you and James Mowat at the suit of  Minnie Bowes, of Hullcar, B. C,  and that the Plaintiff's claim is endorsed   on   the   writ   as   follows:  "The   Plaintiff's   claim   is   to   have  The new Elections Act introduced  last   week   by     Premier   Oliver   proposes  some  radical  departures  from  old   procedure.     The   elimination   of  the      requirement   of   a   deposit   by  candidates,    the  provisions  requiring  statements   from    the   candidates   as  well   as   from      the     secretary   and  treasurer   of   tho   various      political  parties of election expenses, receipts  etc.;    those   providing   for   absentee  voting,   the   granting     to     returned  soldiers   of   whatever     age   and   na.  ���������������������������tionality   the   'franchise,      especially  to Japanese veterans, and  the greater ease afforded to voters to get their  names upon the voters' lists, are the  chief  features  of  the bill.     There  is  one   featu-e   that    will    undoubtedly  call  for criticism,  that providing for  the appointment of deputy-registrars  to   assist   in  the   preparation   of   the  lists.     These officials   will,  apparently, operate on thc same basis.as thc  enumerators   engaged   at   the     1 9 I 7  federal   election.      Opposition   members  are   unkind   enough   to   suggest  that   the   plan   will   prove  a  glorious  opportunity  for  "the boys" -to draw  clown  a substantial stipend  from the  public   purse.     The   proposed   system  of absentee voting, too,  will be  productive of keen debate.     While, the  premier  inronv.etl  the  House,  he  believed   it   to  be  a  most  radical  step  he expressed  the hope that sufficient  safe-guards   t-     prevent     corruption  had  been placed in the  bill.     At ihe  same time it was evident that he expects   the   bill,   and   especially     that  portion     of     it    respecting absentee  voting  will  come  under strong criticism,  for he admitted  that he knew  he   was   running   into   "the   biggest  hunch   of   trouble"   he   had   ever   encountered.    Me    appeared     to -  take  great satisfaction'in the section calling for submission.-, of statements  by  candidates   and   parties   of   their   ex.  panditures,      though   it   is   apparent  that   the   obvious method-  of  getting  around   such  provisions   would  be to  entrust the election outlays to some  party  stalwart's   who   need   not  keep  nually as at present, except that  should an election be held more than  six months after the last revision, a  special revision will be held to permit of purification- of the list. "At  elections each voter will be required  to sign his name and address before  being given a ballot and these will  be compared with the signature on  the original application- made by the  voter for registration. This provision is expected, in great measure,  to prevent personation, ancl at the  same .time form tbe basis for thc  next new list. Absentee voters may  vote in any polling division in which  they happen to be on election day,  voting for the candidate they favor  in their home division. These absentee votes will be forwarded by  the returning officer to the voters'  home division to be counted in that  division. But according to the act  the final count, including these absentee ballots, is not tocbe made-until at least twenty.ono days after  election day.  homesteads, but express a willing.  ness to pay for land-. Stock-raising,  dairying, mixed farming and poultry  raising are the branches of farming  mostly favored.  MEMORY  UNCERTAIN.  Hon. J. A. Calder and Hon. J. D.  Reid returned to Ottawa on- Tuesday from New) York -where they  have been in consultation with Sir  Robert Borden They would say  nothing as to the object and other  particulars of their mission, but Dr,  Rcid vouchsafed' the information  that  Sir   Robert  Borden   would   "be  back later in the session." The  Premier's health is better,^b.ut his  memory is said to be very uncertain;  DAVID   SPENCER   DEAD.  Mr. David- Spencer, pioneer of  Victoria and leading figure in the  business world of British Columbia  for half a century, died suddenly at  his home on March 2nd.
