Vol.  13,  No.   19, Whole No.   690  ENDERBY, B. C. THURSDAY, JUNE 17, 1920  Subscription, $2 a year; 5c copy  Pound Bylaw Again Up  for Its Annual Once-Over  (I. W. V. A. SPEAKER  c-  fn years past possibly no local  bylaw has caused so ni'uch discussion ait the meetings of the City  Council as the Pound- ibylaw. It is  tbe ever-prelsent ibone that may be  uniear.tih-ed at any time tor words of  contention!. Bach new council has  to have it up for discussion. <at least  once land of-tener during- the term,  then iit is laid away again and bur-  'ied for the next council to find and  wrangle over.  ���������������������������Last Monday night it came up tor  .review aa a result of the ipresence  before the council of Herbert Teece,  thle onlly member of a comimiittee of  three appointed by the United Farmers to interview the council relating to its enforcement.Mr. Teece's  only objecttai to the enforcement  of the 'bylaw was on the score of 'the  impounding fee, his complaint being  based on wihat he considered an injustice should the full amount of  'thie fee inl eaoh c^se ibe charged  when say a herd of 20 or 40 cows  were impounded at one operation.  ���������������������������Mayor Barnes, however, /pointed  out to Mr. Teece Chat the city never  'htod impounded farmers' cattle, -and  that there was no likel'lhood of any  au������������������h a dase arising as he based his  comiplaint upon. Herds of 18 and  20 cattle meander into >town daily,  said the Mayor, and are driven out  by the constable, whereas if cows  or horses owned within the city  limits are allowed to roam the  streets tlhey are put into -pound. If  rthere.was any 'inequality in the en-  forcement of the bylaw it was  against the owners of cows within  thie-city,, not against the farmers.  He hoped to see the '"aw more equitably en-forced and this discrim'ina-  tion cease. The oity did not wiant  ,<to cause hardship t������������������ -anyone, and  certainly* would continue to be "lenient, as. in tbe past, in dealing with  herds noamlng into town, 'but where  it- w������������������o obvious that the owners of  stock, whether wiithout the -city or  within, deliibeirately allowed them  to. ipasture iifttfifal t^e ciity|,~ latter  repented "warnings, t/hese cattle  wou/.'d be impounded and the owners miad'e.-������������������o 'pay for. their negligence. - *o ^     ,  Jt wa������������������ apparent from the expressions of the several aldermen that  the words of the Mtyyor expressed  the opinion of al) preseint and the  ���������������������������matter 4������������������4  not  go  farther.  %t was a busy session.

C, in -the Cily Hall  on Friday last, her speech .dealing  with public heal'.th development was  very, interesting  and  constructive.  The woman's vote has not yet  been 'used In B. C, 'but 'the speaker  asserted that there is little 'doubt  that it is" in .the direction of improvement in fhe healtih and welfare  of humanity, that its first influence  will be ifelt. Mot'lievs* ipensions, maternity benefits, distinct nurses and  health centres willi come in a -few  years and will, materially im-prove  the health of coming generations.  Mrs MacLadhlan spoke particularly of. the health centre at Saanich  started by the local Women's Institute. They employ a district nurse  with most advantageous results to  the .neighborhood. This mirse advises-and looks after- expectant mo-  tbeirs, visits 'all houselioldts w.here  there are contagious:diseases ancl by  her advice is often able to iprevcnt  ���������������������������its spreading Jto. other families. The  health centre is used for -.minor operations' andi scihool dentistry and it  is the duty of the. nurse to be present.   -   --- - ���������������������������    -  Mrs. MacLachlain lifted the curtain of the future in 'her speech and  we saw visions of the improvement  we can have if -we use our vote in-  tel-'iigently and'helpfully." Those Who  heard her went awa> Ceelin'g (inspired "'and' cheered by bhe^certai'if  'development wihteh imu'st come as  ���������������������������men and women increasingly realize  that the -urgent need of building up  an A 1 nation wfiU come through iin-  tellligent care, vigilence and knowledge.  "SE-VR  US >fEX"  ���������������������������Tlilis'is" the urgent call o'f the dry  -belt of the Okan'agan where devel-'  'opment anid construct]! on of every  description is being seriously retarded because of t'he shortage of  lalbor. Men are wanted- ifor government road work. More are needed  for the construction of th'e Canadian  National ibranch from Ham-loops to  Keljowna, and- Hon. T. D. Pa;ttull,o  -jeceiirtly stated that he could use  several .hundred, workers on irrigation projects in the Osoyoos district.  JJJqEo^_the^.city_ resident, this labor  shortage may be news, since Vancouver and Victoria men are culling  for work and delegations have  waited on the gover-n-mient asking for  relief. A visit to the Okanagan is  a revelation. Thousands of acres  of land are awaiting development;  owners being anxious to continue  clearing Only small scattered parties of workers are to be seen on  the grade of t'he Canadian National,  while irrigation iprojects aro sadly  held up ancl everyone seems busy.  (Hre entire -va'ley- ftromi Salmon  Arm on thc north clear through to  the a'liternationul boundary u's a hive  of industry -and so great -is- the task  of -development and- ,yo .p-romfisiing*  are t'ho -markets, it is -simprising to  lin'd suoh a dearth of -help.  lAv'tng condlilions arte splendid.

Carmitiiiiel   lli-lclly   Outlines   Ttc-  tiu-ited   Men's   Demands  Never has the G. W. V. A. held  such a successful convention in this  iprovince as that 'wlhilch. has just concluded its sittings at Fernie, stated  C.CannVichael, president of the Poln1  Grey branch, who stopped in Enderby an- hour or two on Thursday  'afternoorn on his way to Vernon  where he was 'to address a -mass  meeting: that evening. Mr. Carmichael spoke 'O a-ipublic 'meeting in the  Drill Hal:. He is a young man with  a future; a fluent, powerful speaker  and one who hits straight fromi the  shoulder, and diid not mln|ce matters  when speaking- of the government's  attitude in dealing with tbe demands  of the returned -men.  Summing up, li*e sartd that the  federal ministers -attempted to make  a virtue out of what they had been  actually forced to do by delegations  of so'-d'iers 'going to Ottawa and  standin'g over them with a club and  flguratiivaly' cljU|bt$Tijg out) of them  the meagre ' consideration which  had been given.  He accused the Ottawa government of closing its eyes to the real  sources of revenue which were open  to levy in, its efforts to find mo.ney  to pay the war debt���������������������������wiair-made fortunes and the like-^���������������������������-and instead  ���������������������������forcing more and more ot the load  upon: the masses.' Each new, source  of taxation found and, every new  levy, lie said, puts -the screws  tighter, upon the consumers���������������������������Che  working masses who have- to toil  for a day's 'payw  Speaking of the policy of .the association, ihe ipointed out that the  G. W. V. A. had a definite policy in  its constitution which 'made it expedient for its members at ail times  to look after .the interests of soldiers' dependents, disabled men and  veterans and while it -had decided  to) "see-'that tha government gave  fair treatment to these, (it did not  ifccessarily mean . that the "association had entered! the p61itical arena.  Mass meetings are to ibe ne'd by  the association throughout the  .proviince to -place before -the public  the" exact principles-for W[hiclr- the  G. W. V._A. stands, and the rights  which  it asks the government.       -.-  With- regard -o internal affairs of  the -association, it is considered that  ���������������������������by far the most .important action  taken by the convention was the ap-  -p'onftiwent o| zone ireipresentatives  of -the" provincial executive. Each  representative will be -made responsible for the b-.ganization of his own  district to a large degree, and it is  thought thlat ,by this means the association -will be placed!-on -a. perfect  business footing in " the province,  which will lead to greater unity.  . Mr. Canmichlael strongly urged  every veteran to see that his name  is on the voters' list. "If you fail  to attend to this first essential of  citizensh'iip," said he, "don't go complaining of what tfte other fe'llow Is  doing, for he will have done what  you   should   have   done.

Little Interest Shown in  Registration by Citizens  Lt.-Col. J. W. Warden, D. S. O.,  late of the 102 Batt., C.E.F., -was in  Enderby on Tuesday seeking to organize a branch of the Moderation  League.  Col. -Warden succeeded in interesting some of the more anoderate-  thinkirig -citizens, and passed on to  Armstrong, intending to go thence  to Vernon for a meeting that night.  He told the Commoner Ith'at in his  travels about the Province -he found  only a small percentage of the  peopfe interested ih. the approaching  vote to :be taken! on tihe^ question of  -prohibition/ and citizens generally,  he said!, are not seeing that their  names are on th'e voters' list. Many  still!* tlh'ink -that because t-htey have  been -on the old voters' -lists their  names will be retained. This mistake, he said, -cannot be too frequently pointed out.Everybody1 must  re-register or Hose th'e franchise, and  anyone whose name is on the new  list after re-registration -and does  not vote, will have the name struck  off. Men and .women entitled to the  franchise must use it or lose it.  - Women"gcnerally are more Indifferent to the matter of registration  than the men, and unless some  united, effort is made, it is doubtful  the 'wom'en registered.  , .With -liegaird to 'the question of  prohibition, Col. Warden said the  Moderation League was endeavoring  to interest all citizen^ In the desirability of -government control of the  liquor traffic as a&ainst any form  of _"bone-dry" legislation!, or such  as we have in the iprovince now.' The  present act, -he said, and aKI similar  acts of this nature, while designed  to stop the sale and consumption of  alcoholic., liquor,   does  neither.

He was thrown off  the road drag, the teanu running  away, and dragging him several hun-  dred^yands-^When-found _by^_Mr._D.  McNair he was lying on the side of  the road unconscious. He was taken  to the home of W,. D. Hiilliardi and  Dr. Van Kleeck was summoned'. Mr.  Law-son was badly cut and bruised,  his reft tiasr being nearly severed,  necessitating eleven stitches. Fortunately,  no  bones  were  broken.  MUST HAVE TRADE LICENSES  Mr. Justico Morrison of the Su-  ipremo Court, Vancouver, mphcld the  ruling of Magistrate Guernsey ot  Penticton', Jn which that (municipality had fined a representative of a  Toronto art firm--for soliciting orders  without first taking out a trader's  license-as is required in many towns.  /Mr. Douglas Armour, K. C, who  -appeared/ for tiie defendants, argued  that the order which had. been received from a Pentioton citizen was  but in' 'neaj'ilty only a permit to ipro-  duco a picture, and that as no actual  exchange of 'goods had taken place,  the representative could not be said  to 'have actually negotiated a sale.  Mr. W. J. McKee, representing the  municipality, upheld tho Penticton  magistrate's decision.  The court ruled that the company's representative was real'.y, soliciting orders for the sale of goods  and therefore would 'be obliged to  take out a license.  This ruling will be received wllth  considerable ilrt'erest in a number of  British Columbia districts where  traveling agents have 'been endeavoring  to  evado   paying   this   license.  present act merely shifts the traffic  from the light of day into the daTk-  ness where the .bootlegger lives and  has his being. The wtod'to traffic has  become surreptitious, but is nevertheless carried on along wiith the additional evils ot adulteration and  profiteerings  Supporters of prohibition/, he sni*4  no doubt looked to see the abolition*  from the country of all kinds of alcohol! ic drinks: They did not forsee  tbat the sudden suppression of the  drink traffic -would' merely dirlve the  evil underground. They did- not consider that people whose habits of  life were :'already set would, deprived of their "accustom'ed stimulant, seek that stimulant elsewhere.  They overlooked the fact that It is  one tilling to place a sweeping reform om t'he statute'book, another to  enforce it. That the act has -failed  to put an end to intemperance Is not  the worst of the case.lt ihas led' to an  alarming increase ,ln the consumption of drugs^���������������������������such as morphine,  cocaine, veTonol, heroin:, methylated  sphiits���������������������������anld bottled essences containing a high percentage of alcohol.  The Moderation League is for  government control of the- Mquor  traffic. This, properly, handled, and':  sanely administered, ' would turn  back to. th'e people hundreds of  thous'amda of dollars annually to 'be  used in the administration of the  affairs of the Province.  This revenue wou'd go a long way  toward relieving the present demand  for 'higher taxation. .     V  The League wants everybody to  get on Che voters' last so as to be  able to have a voice in future legislation- on this important question.  XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX  X      .     J.

Canada is not alone in  this. Just across the .boundary our  neighbor, the America.n - .farmer, !���������������������������  lino up in arms. His attitude -is  snmimed up by. Charles F. Barrett,  president of the National Farmer*'  Union.  "It would 'be very pleasant to say  that all >ls well with agriculture and  that in the farmer's mSnd there 1s  nO ddscontent; jiothing left to be de-  si-ed," said Mr. Barrett. "The facts  are that the farmer is not content  nor  satisfied."  -The Und'ted States .post oflice department sent out questionnaires to  the farmers throughout the country. "The replies of the farmers,"  ������������������alid Mr. Barrett, "reveal deep dissatisfaction with the treatment that  h'as been accorded agriculture and  resentment at the wide spread between prices received- by the farmers  and those palid by consumers, a feeling of insecurity in the ability to  secure labor, or to hold even the  boys and! girls on the farms in competition wiith the alluring scale of  wages offered in industry and commerce off thc farms. The farmers,  at least the organized farmers, from  now on will pool thonr efforts, in exploring what in the p'ast has 'been  forbidden ground."

H. M.   WALKER  THURSDAY,  JUNK   17,   1920  Printerdom in Peril  A meetirig of the Okanagan Press Ciuild svas  held in "Vernon..last, week. Tiie membership oi  this organization consists of llie employing  printers'of the Okanagan. H i.s tlie pioneer district printers' guild of" Canada. Since its .organization twelve or more years ago the printers and  publishers of olher districts in the Dominion  Jiave organized in a similar way. The object ol"  this organization is lo encourage its members  lo sludv the ins and outs ol' their business so as  to bring about more intelligent action and greater  ellieicncy in the handling ol" all matters all'ecling  printerdom.  The achievements of the Okanagan Press (.uild  havc not been published. They have nof been  advertised. Bul this Guild is recognized Ihrotig-  out printerdom in Canada as the first distnc'  organization ol* its kind in the Dominion.  At the meeting last week in Vernon the Guild  was honored bv'having al the-meeling Mr. Conrad, a'representative ol' the United Typolhctae ol  6 America, recognized as the greatest, mosl-lar-  reachina and successful organization ol' employing pri (Hers in the world. Throughout the American continent the Typothetae is expanding and  soon we shall see printerdom in Canada and the  United States linked up under this excellent organization. The objects of the United Typolhctae  arc manifold, but the prime object is to elevate  the printing and publishing business and make  of it a profession par excellence. To do this, it  is recognized that thc first step is lo bring about  the greatest degree of ellieicncy. Today men in  the publishing "business who will not make any  eli'ort to advance themselves or to raise lhc standard ol' printerdom are being gradually forced  to the wall, and it is estimated that within thc  next year or two hundreds now engaged in  printing and publishing will go under. The costs  of production and everything embraced in lhe  printing-profession are so enormous and the advance so continuous, that men nol thoroughly  eflicient in their" work and in tlie handling of  business, cannot hope to "stand up under lhc  strain.  Let us cfiiote by way of illluslralion somc of  the commonest advances: Wc have before us  the price lists of a wholesale paper house in Vancouver. In 15)14 newsprint was quoted at' 4'/>  cents a pound, in large quantities 3 cents; in 1917  the quotations were G^ cents and 5 cents; in  15)20 a newsprint not so good as lhal of old is  quoted at 11 !/-J> cents. Colored poster paper which  Dr. Hobertson, apart from being one of Canada's outstanding authorities on agricultural  questions, has during the pasl couple, of years enjoyed excellent' facilities' for studying lhe food  situation in Kuropc. Mis conclusions will, therefore, be based on first-hand information, and,  knowing Ihe man. we have no'hesitation in staling thai, if they err.-it will certainly, be on the  conservative side. We would almost go so fains lo sav lhat we should prefer his judgment on  this particular subject lo lhal of any other living  man. -  The following i.s a brief ..extract from his" "evidence, as reported by the Associated Press, which  speaks I'or itself:  "Tanners Ihroughoul Canada will continue lo  gel good prices for Iheir products during lhe nexl  Iwo" years, so let us go lo il and produce every  bushel of grain and every pound of produce we  can.  "���������������������������It will lake al leapt Iwo big crops lo catch tip  lo anvlhiiiir like normal supplies of breads I nil's, j  ten"*years lo atlain a pre-war slatus on milk products and four or five years for beef product's.  ''Dr. Hoberlson went al length inlo his experience overseas, reiterating his statements that  prices were dependent entirely upon world conditions. Increased production in Canada would  nol lower prices because of continued abnormal  emand.  "Dr. Robertson made an urgent plea I'or economy in Canadian homes. People must produce,  more and spend less. Canada's Jinancial burden  from the war was $2,000,000,000 and -would  menn'P-3*100 per family annually-for many ycars  lo come."  We feel sure thai the above Avill be reassuring  information for our readers. We may apparently  look forward lo satisfactory grain prices tor al  least iwo more crop years. "Sufiicicnt for lhc  day is the evil thereof." We musl hope for the  best afler that.���������������������������Farm and Ranch Review.  ?m  Tidal Gifts in  Sterling* ������������������ Silver Plate  THURSDAY,  JUNE  17.  1920  NOTICE OF.

George Jones also went to Merritt  and gave us the task oif finding a  new first baseman., not by any means  an easy task, though Gordon, Duncan  made a good showing.

'. .  -,  AXIMATj DISEASES ERADICATION  SUMftiOIVEK. _   PRODUCTION  MANITOBA  IN  ���������������������������At a meeting held in Toronto on  Thursday, May 27th, the final steps  were taken in the organization of a  body to be kn'own as the "Animal  Diseases Eradication. Boardi." As its  name implies, thus Board has for its  object t'he formulation 'and carrying  out of plans for controlling livestock  diseases in Canada, it being the intention to pay particular attention  at this time to tuberculosis of live  stock, a disease which contributes  to a greater extent than- is generally  recognized, to the spread o-i tuberculosis in human beings, 'besides  causing enormous economic waste  of food products by reason of condemning, as nufit for human food,  carcases or 'portions of carcases, of  tuberculous -animals.  The Hoard is composed of twelve  meniibers,'four from the livestock associations, four from the meat 'packers, and-four'from- the Federal De-  pa'rliment oif Agiticulture, and Uie  "headqu'arters of the Board -will be  at Ottawa. Co-operation wjBh .'provincial'' governments,., railways,  ���������������������������banlks, press and, public health  bodies  will  be sought.  At tlie Toronto meeting, an Executive Connmlittee of three inwimfters  was appointed, one .from each of  the" interests repesented, to -consider and make recommendations to  the -full Board with reference to the  details of a" plan of campaign for  controlling this disease most effectively, the broadi outlines of- the plan  Waving- beten; agreed upon 'by the  Board. These details will deal with  the methods of obtaining tlhe necessary funds for the work, the .executive olrganizati'on, the areas to ,be  covered, the. methods,'by which the  work can best be carried on and- the  a'dimii'ni strati on of any ifiund that may  be established for the purpose.'  The objects in view will involve  hearty co-o>������������������eration between the live  stock men1, the ipackens, the federal  and provincial Departments of Agri-.  cultu.re and the solid backing of all  interested' in the-disease from .the  tiui'nvainl as well 'as the live stock  standpoint.  dicated that there are good reasons  to believe that tliis co-operation will  be secured." ��������������������������� The 'plans are necessarily tentative but a great deal of progress Mis already been made, and.  after the representatives of the  groups Wave had an opportunity to  consult the executives and membership of the various associations it is  expected that a full iplan' will be developed   and   details   anrounced.

Grisdlaile  Until recently the majority of the  farmers in this province experienced  no difficulty in securing sufficient  roughage for their livestock. In a  number of cases pul/ic-owned lands,  railways or speculators have supplied a considerable amount of the  necessary feed. Xow, however, owing-to the increase in the numlber of  farmers in- many distriotls much land  Is no longer available; as a result,  ln 'many pants there is a shortage of  roughage and a- sitronlg demand for  information on the growing and  handfln'g of roughage crops to supply the much-felt shortage.  In reviewing the methods of cropping which are in use in districts  where similar conditions have prevailed and where live stock have become numerous and land .high in  value, we note that wiithout exception provision has been made for  growing some kind of sila'ge crop.  Having a silo and growing si!age  crops will not make two blades of  grain! grow where one grew before,  but it will materially increase production and preserve what does grow  Jn a palatabfe and succulent, form  for feeding.  It is -cljiimed that- t.he silo increases the producing capacity of a  farm at least ten per cent, and' will  often increase its stock-carrying capacity twenty-five per cent. Prof. D.  H. , Otis, Wisconsin, reports in his  analysis of 531 farms in that state:  "We found it'hat for *he year the net  profit on 390 farms with silos was  *f875 a farm'anid on 141 farms'without silos, $535 a.- farm*." The dift'er-  etace in favor of the sil-o was $34 0 a  IMr.  INSTEAD OF CHURNING���������������������������MAKE MORE  MONEY WITH LESS TROUBLE  Burns Creamery  VERNON  Mails   Bank   Money   Order and  tests  showing   results    of   each   shipment.-,,  Also  pays  all  transportation charges.
