On that day, lessons on (ire prevention subjects will be given in every  school, public meetings will be held in many  of the ciiies, towns and larger villages, and lhe  owners and occupants of properly everywhere  'Ihroughoul Canada will be counselled to gi\'e  Vnecial attention lo the removal of fire, hazards  from their premises.  Fire waite is one of the most serious economic  problems confronting Canada al thc present  time. Particularly fortunate as Enderby has  becn in this regard, thcrc is every reason why  we should, individually and collectively, lake  heed of the lesson taught by Fire Prevention Day  observance. The public in general is vitally interested, or should bc, lor it is vitally affected by  lhc tremendous losses annually incurred by fire  and the enormous expenditures rendered ncccs-  sarv, lo adequately protect life and property from  ils ravages. Seeing that at least 75% of all fires  are. caused'by carelessness and can therefore be  prevented, it is thc obvious duly of those in authority to bring the matter to the attention of the  people, which is being clone in setting apart Firc  Protection Day.

Barrister, Solicitor,  Notary Public.  INSURANCE  Bell Blk. Enderby, B.C.  The Recall System on Trial  When lhc United Farmers were successful al  tlie poll in Ontario, avc heard a lol from lhe professional politician on lhc horror of it all and  how certainty Ontario would rue thc day when  farmers lock lhe benches in thc Ontario House.  These fears and forebodings have nol conic lo  pass. Indeed, nol withstanding thc handicap under which il look over lhe reins of government in  Onl'ario, the United Farmers' parly, in carrying  oul its pre-election promises, has exceeded even  llie mosl sanguine expectations of the people.  11 lias encountered some criticism, of course,  but this has been largely from its opposition.  On the other hand, Ihc commendation whicli has  been showered upon ils individual ministers for  work already accomplished has more lhan outweighed tlie fault finding. Thcrc is one plank in  the United Farmers', parly thc cITccls of which  undoubtedly is proving an impetus lo ministers  and members lo remain alert in thc carrying out  of (hc funcl'ions of lhcir- various ollices. It is  llie plank providing for lhc recall. Should a  member of lhc Government at any lime during  his tenure of otticc fail to perform any duty that  is in thc interests of his constituency "or carry on  in any way not ih accordance wilh lhc wish ol  lhc people-who elected him lo office, he may be  :mmediately petitioned to resign. " In favoring  iiiis plank the United Farmers in Ontario have  beoir quite consistent. Touching upon it recently  lhc Farmers' Sun, the ollicial "organ of the party,  said editorially:  "The old-system of electing men lo parliament  raid then leaving Ihc'm .alone for four or" five  ycars has bcen onc of lhc most prolificrcauses of-  Lhe xevy unsatisfactory government wc have had  in lhis counlry. The people whe elected t'he men  to parliament lel'l. them alone, bill-the lobbyists  of the Big Interests never ceased their attentions  day or night. That explains why many seemingly  good men elected t'o parliament went wrong and  betrayed lhcir trust, li' thcy had been forced lo  keep in touch wilh the people back home these,  things would nol have happened." _    ��������������������������� ' j  In  tl.is   connection,   thc   Kamloops   Telegram j  says: "Thc Dominion is undoubtedly keeping its J  eyes on the Qnlario experiment and it will not be,  long before the recall system will be introduced  in other provinces and into federal politics.    In  ;ko present contingency it would bc a very useful lever if it were in the hands of the people to  ������������������������������������������������������in ploy. Certainly much of lhc doubt that seems  lo exist.as to.whether or nol it is the.wish of the  people to elect its parliament would readily be  removed.    With the system in operation; parties  as well as individual members arc required,for  W.  their own sakes to keep in touch willi. lhc people  and lhcir constituencies. They find they cannot  look forward tp Iheir sojourns a'l the seal of  governmcnl as an enforced holiday."  An Independent Liberal  Mr. Maxwell Smilh is Ihc lasl to get lhc political bee in his bonnet.    Me is out in a circular  :letter staling  lhal  hc  is  prepared'  lo  enter  lhe  political arena in the next Provincial election as  a "clean-cut Independent Liberal candidate, free  from  parly afiilialions, and  pledged  lo  use  my  'besl endeavor;  lo promote  the Agricullural, In-  jduslrial and Commercial development of Dewcl-  incy   District   in   particular   and   tlie   welfare   of  British Columbia in general."  ! In presenting his case Mr. Smith states that he  j did what hc .could to defeat the Conservative  party in 1910, as was his duty, in thc public interest, "and no party ever assumed the reins of  power, at any time, in any province of Canada,  ! willi more outstanding and rapidly unfolding opportunities for the exercise of true statesmanship Iha'n did the Liberals a I Ihaf time. Bul a  policy of 'drift' seems to havc rendered .the Govern nfen I impolenl to rise above thc jordinaiy, or  lo satisfy the expectations of the public by fulfilling pre-election'pledges1 ancl instituting necessary icforms.. Much has occurred since Uic presenl incumbents of thc treasury benches gained  .control lo stultify progressive' Liberalism and  bring into ridicule the high standards of public  morality for wliich thc parly in this- Province  hitherto "consistently and-vigorously contended.  Thc Ship of'Stale is still maimed by a captain  and crew of the old school, on a new and unr  chartered sea of troublous times, wiio seem to  lack vision to -set their course by the stars-of  human destiny, or lhc capacity lo' successfully  deal with llie 'extraordinary- conditions extant,  trusting lhat 'things will right themselves,'  ignoring the fact that pre-war conditions will  never return;- and that new conditions demand  new,- prompt and* carefully prescribed ��������������������������� treatment."   -. .

KEEPS  The world has been looking a long time for  a meaner man than the onc who avails himself  of the pleasure of reading the home paper a  number of years, and then orders it returned  to lhc publisher marked "refused."
