Vol. 13, No. 36, Whole No. 682  THURSDAY, OCT. 28; 1920.  Subscription, $3 a year  PLEASED  WITH  OUTLOOK  * _____  Candidate  MacKelvie  States the Outlook for His Election is Most  Favorable.  Editor MacKelvie was ln Enderby  district Monday, ^endeavoring to get  a political lineup on the /probable  outcome of the Federal bye-election  to be held' November 22nd. Mr. MacKelvie admitted it was not an easy  "matter* to do this with anything like  the accuracy of past campaigns but  he felt confident within his own mind  that the chances for his election were  most favorable. HeJ, had just travelled- over the Yale "constituency, he  said, and after meeting ,the electors  in fhe various parts of the riding he  felt most encouraged. In all sections  he was assured of the support of all  old-timers, because of his long residence ln the constituency and his  close touch with the requirements of  the district.  Regarding Vernon district, Mr.  MacKelvie stated that he was certain  to have a big majority there, lt is  not at all certain that the returned  men will sticks to Col. Edgett, and he  already had had the assurance of  many far piers tha't they, too, would  draw away from the Soldier-Farmer  candidate since the Liberals- had endorsed him.* <���������������������������    ��������������������������� | ���������������������������''-.  Mr. MacKelvie said he did not in*  tend to start his campaign speech-  making until after ������������������the meetings - to  be held by the Prime Minister, but  as soon as these meetings are over  he expects to. go Into every polling-  place and place his case before the  electors. v . .'*���������������������������   -'a  Okanagan  teachers on the way they  surmounted   their" organization   aiffi-  The speaker complimented the  culties, and had become one of the  strongest local Associations in the  province.  He said that B. G. had taken the  lead in forming a provincial federation and that now most of the provinces in the Dominion had followed  our example, although as yet, none  of the others had such a large proportion of members, i He showed  how the Federation had helped in  numberless ways to bring about reforms by being a medium through  which the teachers could communicate with the Education Department.  The latter now through the Federation, could get the voice of the  teachers as a whole, instea'd of .having to depend on getting thefldeas of  a few individuals which were always  more or less contradictory. Consequently a new sense of harmony now  prevails, education is progressing in  B. C. as never before, and the teachers are being raised to a new level  educationally, socially and financially. .      ���������������������������  Mr. Charlesworth made it clear  that the Federation's ready at "all  times to lielp either. the teachers or  xxxxxxxxxxxxxxsx  X ENDERBV NEWS X  XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX  Good   morning.

At the evening session," which was  open  to tbe  public,  Mayor  Fltzmaur-  ice occupied the chair, and the-large  turnout of local people w_as very  gratifying.  It was ^somewhat of a disappointment that Mr. S. J. Willis, Superintendent of Education, wlfo had Intended to address the meeting that  night, was prevented ' by unforeseen  circumstances from attending. ��������������������������� However, Dr. MacDonald, member for  North Okanagan, very kindly agreed  to take his place, and gave an address on "Educational Ideals", which  everyone there would have been  sorry to miss.  This was followed by an address  from Mr. Charlesworth, secretary of  the B. C. Federation of Teachers,  who had just-"arrived from Nelson,  where he had been 'attending the  convention of B. C. Trustees. He  pointed out the tremendous Improvements that had been made in the  running of our educational 'machinery  by the close and sympathetic cooperation of teachers, trustees, and  Education   Department.  He paid a very hlght tribute to the  trustees who, he said, were strongly  imbued wltbt the new spirit of education, and were sparing neither time  nor trouble in the discharge of their  duties. This new spirit of co-operation was evidenced__by the fact that  the trustees had .-invited Mr. Charlesworth to attend their convention, and  had allowed him to speak on every  motion that was brought up.  Saturday mornlng's_sesslon was a  very .busy one. The resolutions  committee made their report, and  several very Important resolutions re-  =gardlng���������������������������toxt-books,=etc.,==were==put  through. There was also a round  table conference headed by Mr.  Charlesworth, who seems to have the  rare gift of looking at a question  from every possible "standpoint and  seeing lt from everybody's point of  view. It Is this breadth of view  which-is going to do away with any  jarring elements which may have  existed In our educational system.  During the morning Mr. Charlesworth explained to the teachers the  new provincial salary schedule recently3 adopted by the B. C. Federation.  On the election of new officers for  the coming year,' the retiring officers  were thanked for the valuable work  they had done, and a special vote of  thanks was accorded -Mr. A. S. Matheson, of Penticton,, on whom most qf  the work' had fallen, for his untiring  energy and enthusiasm as corresponding   secretary.  The following officers were elected  for the coming year:��������������������������� President:  L. J. Miller, Penticton; first vice-  president: T. H. Calder, Vernon;  Sec-  S. A.

A Sane Vote.  wiih mc / fee now oi noozc, crime us mcvi  accompaniment will mount jails and penit  arics fill and tliis will, as in Saskatchewan's  Late returns show that approximately 125,189  votes were polled in British Columbia in thc recent Prohibition plebiscite. Of these 75,964  were for Moderation and 49.225 for Prohibition,  giving a  net Moderation majority of 26,739.  Leaders on hoth sides were hoping for a decisive result. Thcy got it. It was a great surprise lo Prohibitionists and the churches. The  churches, wilh scarcely an exception, took a  stand for Prohibition. That thc vote went 27,000  thc olher way is significant. It docs not. however, indicate"what a P. P. A. advertisement hy-  s t e r fca 11 y a n n o u n ces:  "Booze wins. Arc wc down-hearted? No!  Thc P. P. A. will go straight along with its work.  It's victory is not lost���������������������������only delayed. "Bone  Dry" for B. C, through thc people's ballot, is as  sure as tomorrow's "sunrise. Why? Because  willi flic free flow of booze, crime it's inevitable  itenti-  7s case  bc followed by public revulsion;-and then the lost  the long lost clean-up! But meantime there is a  grim harvest of shame and sorrow for John Barleycorn to reap."  It is just such peddlers of hysteria as the above  that the people of British Columbia are afraid  of���������������������������more afraid of than of liquor in moderation.  Il wasn't lhal ^the people of Brilish Columbia  want thc old liquor- laws back lhat thcy voted  so overwhelmingly for moderation... Nor will wc  sec anvlhing like the conditions depicted by the  P. P. A. advertisement. Thc vote was. for a rc-  i"urn to sanity in our legislation not for a return  of thc old booze days. It was distinctly against  giving a free hand to extremists of the P. p.'A.  typo.  * Those wiio looked upon thc women as certain  to vole for Prohibition were badly disappointed.  The result of thc plebiscite indicates that tbe  women intend to use their franchise just as sanc-  lv and as intelligently as the menfolk and are  net going to bc-sUimp'edcd by extremists, though  Ihrough custom thcy may give them a more sym-  ���������������������������ui'belie liearing' than Ihe male side of the household.  Isort will be made from  the board within   the  next twenty-four hours. ' _  The report is lhat the Premier has personally  made a move in thc direction indicated. This  would be evidence of thc annoyance which he  undoubtedly felt over the recent action oi the  board on the sugar matter in his absence irom  thc city. ,,1  Thc Premier was onc of those who had considerable faith J n thc ellieicncy of thc board in  its original formation as a means of dealing with  thc high cost of living and profiteering, ahd had  hopes.until recently that it might still be made  useful to that end.  Thc Premier's disappointment in the Board  is shared by thc people. If the report is true thai  lhcir resignations have been asked for, lhe people of fiic Dominion will not mourn. Unless  we mistake the sounds, the resignation ot the  members of the Board" of- Commerce, and, in  fact, the resignation of the members of numerous other boards and commissions, would be  greeted with jov by Canadians.  " Justlv or unjustly the feeling prevails that wc  havc had altogether too much government by  boards and commissions and not enough by  the men elected to do thc governing.  If the action of Premier Meighen in cancelling  the sugar order of the Board of Commerce is  indicative of the policy hc intends to carry out  while he is Premier he will soon find the people  arc back of him. But unless he lakes this stand,  and without equivocation and folderol, declares  againsl the prevailing policy of- the powerful  group behind the government at Ottawa ol protecting thc big interests by dipping into thc  pockets of thc people in order to assist sugar  speculators and lhc like to pay their gambling  dobls, then Mr. Meighen sooner or later musl  himself gic way to another more in sympathy  wfth thc "electors.    -  Prevent Exploitation.  Can Premier Meighen stem the tide of criticism and doubt thnTprcvails in thc minds of the  people of Yale constituency against the Ottawa  government, and turn a losing contest into one  of  victorv for Edilor MacKelvie?  This is "a vital question.   Il is not fair lo ignore  it.  ���������������������������Reeen t=hnppenings~=ii I���������������������������Ot tawa=J)uoughU-ouL  more forciblv lhan ever before what is stated by  lhe Christum" Guardian in lhc following editorial:  "From onc end of lhc country to thc other,  there is universal suspicion lhat thc public is  being robbed to make a small group rich. And  lhere is a conviction profound and deep, that  our government has done little or nothing to  protect lhe people whom, it is supposed to-  represent. ,  '���������������������������"Whether this conviction ;is correct: or not.  we are nol in a position lo say. bul lhat it exists  is certain, and to it Bolshevism makes ils strongest appeal. And one of thc surest ways of disarming Bolshevism would be I'or the government to insist thai robbing of the public shall  forthwith eeaso. Canadians arc not unwilling  to be taxed, and taxed heavily, to pay 'thciir  honest debts; hut they arc not willing to bc taxed on food and clothing, on lumber and paper,  and evervlhing else, to enable a few men to  amass speedy fortunes. Thc speediest and surest wav of dealing with Bolshevism is by show-  in^ our" people ..that wc arcoin earnest, in our  determination -to-pi event their exploitation by  men  who  aim   to  grow   rich  suddenly."        ...  Thc people of the West arc sick ot hearing  emptv platitudes from our leaders, lhcy want  lo know from Premier Meighen wherc he stands,  and intends to stand, and lhis without any .quibbling or sidestepping.  A Hint That Should Be Taken.  England in Throes of Strike.  Oflicial announcement has been made by the  Board of Trade of England that-a])prox,matcly  1,100,000 miners arc now idle, and that JOIMHJU  steel workers have been discharged. Nearly 2o0,-  000 former.service men arc on thc books as receiving "unemployment donations." Dockers to  the number of 50*000 arc out of work, and it is  predicted that if the coal strike lasts another,  Week, a million morc men in. industries relying  on the. production of coal will be out. oi work.  Downing street characterizes this a* creeping  paralysis, which will ultimately affect the entire  industrial structure of the nation."        ^ %  Onc of thc serious features of the mining situation is lhc cessation of the export of coal, which  a Board of Trade official describes as the life-  blood of Knglaud." .  Ti thc face of these figures the railway men  and transport workers have determined to quit  work unless the government, is prepared to ic-  opciV negotiations with the miners. Negotiations  which are expected to lead to a settlement are  now in progress.  premier tyeighen's Itinerary,.  A revised itinerary of Premier Mean's west-  cm tour was issued last weelc.

(Communicated.)  '    ���������������������������     -"**'  Last year eight members of the  Chicago White Sox for a few thousand dollars threw away the world's  championship and robbed the other  members of the team of a chance to  share the winners' receipts instead  * ot" tho losers' end. "_.        <-  They were found out. Can we condemn them? Do we play fair? It  may be. wo are not doing so.  " No matter what your_. profession  you may be crooked. The school pupil who does not do his best work is  holding back his class. In other  words he is throwing away his team's  chances   of   winning.  The parent who helps the child' unnecessarily with homework set by  the teacher is fooling (?) the teacher  into thinking the. child is doing well.  The examinations (tne crucial game)  comes and the game is lost. Crooked?  Yes.    Deliberately thrown away. -  . The teacher .who.- punishes a pupil  who is "backward or who makes "a  mistake drives the child to cheating.  Tlie teacher promotes pupils .who are  unfit for the big series. They have  been corrupted and in a big test  throws away their  chances.  The ballplayer who 'makes beautiful hits to. the outfield into the fielder's hands when a safe hit means the  winning' run is throwing away -the  game. The player who gives up trying is crooked.  Joe. Jackson, one of the White Sox  guilty players said, "We tried our  - -hardest to throw away, the third,  game too, but little. Dick Kerr kept  on trying and won, singlehanded.f Wo  couldn't beat Dick.". Kerr playe4  fair and-square.

The Agricultural Journal, issued by the Provincial Department of Agriculture at public expense, has issued the' statement that numbers of  protests from the B. C. Press Association, the  Retail Merchants' Association, and individuals,  have becn received by" the Premier and Minister  of Agriculture, calling for the suppression of  that publication, and its-readers are asked to express lhcir opinions on thc matter. Thc editor  says: "If the publication.is not giving full value  for the money expended, it should go out. of existence." This is, of course, indisputable, and, in  the case of a privately owned. paper, would operate automatically. But there e.ie other considerations, equally important, to bc taken into account in this particular case. Onc is thc fact  that a journal issued by the government ahd  charging a subscription fee, is an anomaly, and  constitutes an item of unfair competition against  publications which have lo--stand or fall on their  own merits.' This consideration alone justifies  thc protest of thc Press Association. But to my  mind, by far the worstjeature in. this matter has.  been the extraordinary ahd virulent discrimina-.  tion against thc existing channels of trade which  has characterized the editorial policy of the Journal. It was not mercly the preaching of cooperation���������������������������that was, and is. perfectly legitimate  ���������������������������it was thc bitter, and unjustified criticism of  retailers and their associations, which aroused  thc resentment of the. general public. Sucii an  attitude in a journal issued by a people's government was little short of an outrage, and "it is not  surprising that an apology was a I length made  in the editorial columns.���������������������������Summerland Review.

Grindrod, B C o21-2c  When we hear so much about the  unholiness of the unholy sugar  board, we are inclined to wonder  what prompted it to pass that sugar  order which Premier Meighen was  so quick to suspend. Perhaps rif we  reread the Ottawa report sent out a  day or two before the unholy order  was issued we may have a clearer  idea of the board's unholiness. Here  is an Ottawa dispatch published before the order was issued and* therefore before the voice of the people  was   heard   in   the   hills:  "Ottawa, Oct. 13.���������������������������After giving the  sugar situation serious consideration  for some days and,.making it the subject of a meeting of council, the government has handed the matter over  to the Board of Commerce with which  the representatives of the refineries  were in , conference Tuesday afternoon. _ _'"'  . "it is now believed that an order  will be issued from the board today  dealing with the situation in a manner most satisfactory to the refiners.  The belief Is that an order will be Issued prohibiting . wholesalers - from  inlying sugar from any source but the  refiners. The reason given being that  it is deemed in the public interest to  take   such   action.  "Tlie prohibition will probably run  until the end of the year. The effect  of "this is substantially an embargo  on imports. It is understood that  Mr. W. F. O'Connor lias. tieen in the  United States in consultation ��������������������������� with  the refining interests and the infer"  ence would seem to be that an arrangement mutually satisfactory to  Canadian and American refiners, has  been reached. The board will hear  objections to the order, if "such should  be forthcoming, as it is extremely  likely there will be."    ,  The whole trouble seems fro be  that the government passed the  "buck" to the Board or Commerce  and that the board passed the sugar  order first ancl heard the objections  of.the people afterwards. It is quite  natural for the Government to desire  to hear nothing more about- the sugar  order. But it is top deliciously sweet  to  be  forgotten.

Drummond, president of the" Canada Sugar Refining  Company, had presented the refiners'  case. "As "it is now stated,'' he concluded, "that there would not be a  warrant in law for the action of the  Board of Commerce, we do not press  for the order to bc continued, but  leave our claim for redress in the  hands of the people and the Government of Canada with complete confidence that justice will be done."  "I don't quite understand your position," here remarked the Prime  Minister. "As I understand it, you  don't press for the order of the Board  of Commerce to be continued, but  leave your claims to be redressed.. Do  1 understand that you don't take issue with the government's position  that the Board of Commerce order  was ultra vires of the board and also  contrary to  its authority?"  Mr. Drummond replied: "We don't  take "issue with the government's position that the order of the board  was without warrant in law."  "Under these circumstances," the  Prime Minister rejoined, "the suspension will have to be made permanent,  because on that ground alone the  suspension would be justified and I  think *we may consider the hearing  closed."  Will' Hold Sugar Price Up.  - T. M. Fraser, wiring to the Vancouver Province from Ottawa, says:  "With the, sudden collapse of the  sugar., hearing interest now turns on  the possible aftermath of the incident. The natural expectation is that  the market wilfbe flooded with cheap  sugar, but,some wholesalers are not  so sure that there will be any immediate spectacular drop.
