Laidman Makes  ^    Big- Hit with Electors  _  s-v.  "United  Farmers' hall was crowded  ~, Wednesday  night  to  hear  Mr.  Laidman,  the  Parmer  candidate  for  Provincial representative Honors, explain  _ 'his   position, . his   aims   and     objects.  Mr. .Laidman was enthusiastically, received -and. was' given a most cordial  "hearing.V'He spoke ciearly on the issues of the campaign, and particularly the main issue, which he said was  -whether-or not the people of an agri-  , cultural   district   believed   in   Having  a- farmer representative of the  Inde-  -peridebt;type or a professional representative of the old  party  type.     In  - his trite homely way of presenting his  case," Mr.   Laidman - created   a  splen-  .did. impression   and   gained   the   con-  '" fidence of all who listened to him.  V He was preceded  by  Mr.  Howe of  -Vernon   and - followed   by   Mr.   Copeland,  both  of whom  spoke only  casually  of  the   campaign  and   in   com-  -;��������������������������� mendatidn- of  the   personal   qualities  i of the .candidate.  ��������������������������� Mr.   Laidman's   reference-  to'.- the  marketing   facilities .of  the     farmer,  _who he"said,__was asked and urged to  produce _and   produce,   but   when   he  ::. liad produced he was faced with the  1 ��������������������������� lack of ' market facilities that would  "'enable him to sell his product at a  ;���������������������������' .prqfitV.  He; advocated  the  establish-  t-ment "'of  government   abbatoirs     and  -elevators .similar to'the policy adopt-  be helpful to have a fair representation of farmers in our legislatures.  Only six Farmer candidates" are  standing in this election, so the farmers can not be accused of seeking to  form a Farmers' Government which  Mr. Laidman said he did not feel  would be in the best interests of this  particular province, with its wonderful natural resources and mixed in-  dustries. Therefore the farmers cannot be accused of seeking class legislation which is the last thing he would  wish to seek.  "The reason Agriculture has not received the assistance to which it has  been entitled," said Mr. Laidman, "is  mainly on account of the lack- of the  necessary sympathy, which can only  be obtained by having sufficient  farmers to* assist professional men in  the legislative assembly. There have  been too many professional men in  the past personnel of our Provincial  Government. Our agricultural committee proves that part, there being  no farmers serving on it and the  chairman is a _dentist."  . A great deal of use is being made  by the supporters of Dr. MacDonald,  in seeking his re-election, of the  amount of domestic and social legislation passed by the Oliver Governor .ment   oi   government   annatoirs     ana  ment.    Mr. Laidman places the credit  of   this   legislation   to     Mrs.     Ralph  ���������������������������zed'-' by-, the  government  of Denmark, Smith, who was an independent can-  ���������������������������_���������������������������' which >.were,7 afterwards taken over by;didate   in   1916, 'arid  he  accepts  her  -;jthe"farme'Ts'-and--the government paid .own statement that the men of fhis  VV^" Vhacfc'aj^ in-" province have made the laws for .wo-  fVV V; Merest J^qfo agricultural - market- facil- meri/too long and," In the same way,  XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX  X ENDERBY NEWS *  XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX  Good morning! Is there anything  strange or startling think you, in the  farmers of a farming community desiring a farmer representative in the  legislature?  Dr. K. C.

This, he said, woulc? take road work  out of politics and he contended that  much better results would be obtained than ever have been obtained under the old system of campaign road  building and campaign road repairs.  On the question of aid to municipalities, Mr. Laidman said he could  endorse every suggested proposal  submitted by the city    of    Enderby,  feel that so long as they are prepared  toosubmit to this sort of thing they  never can get anywhere.  ENDERBY  AGRICUI-TUPAL CLASS.  The students of -the Agriculture  Class at the Enderby high school  have organized a club of t'neir own  and are now ready for hard work.  The membership is limited to those  students who have taken first year  agriculture or are now studying agriculture at the high school.  The executive elected for the coming year are: President. George  Sparrow;     vice-president,   Ella     Mc-  with the single exception and that j Kay; secretary, Audrey Mallory;  -was-that-'lTe -woulrt-like-to-iirge -and J treasurer, _Sis. _Sparrow_; _.press, repre-.  would stand for all the revenue from \ aentative, Antoinette Paradis. The  the amusement tax, which had been J duties of most of the executive are  put on as a war measure and had not t well  known  to  nearly  everyone,  but  been repealed, being allocated entirely to the upkeep of hospitals, which  he maintained were indispensible institutions and should be worthily  maintained. -v  In his address Mr. Laidman emphasized these points. .  Standing as a Farmer candidate is  placing  Agriculture   before  Party.  Farmers have organized on an educational, economic and social basis  and in doing so have been careful to  see that proper equity is given to  other industries.  Colonization is what British Columbia requires and no one can assist to bring about this better than  the Farmers, provided agriculture receives -the ecognition from any government that it should. To accomplish this an equitable representation  in the Provincial House is held to  be essential. "  The Farmers are prepared to stand  behind any good, sound, clean legislation, so that neither of the old line  parties have anything to fear provided they are prepared to legislate  along theso lines.  Today radical thought is the menace which confronts the world and  as our farmers have always been the  centre of conservative common sense,  the cradle of real democracy, it is  felt that in the crisis at hand it will  those of the press representative may  require explanation. The club is of  the opinion that from time to time  there will be items of Interest transpiring in connection with club work,  and in order that these may be presented to the reading public, through  the press, a representative has been  appointed who will be responsible for  tliis part of the work.  It is the intention that all activities  of tlie club will be of practical value  to the members and to the community. One practical problem, has already come up for serious consideration; that is the question of the  school garden. It is the desire of  every member of the club to see the  grounds at the old school so improved next summer that they will be a-  credit to Enderby, and to this end  they intend to bend all their energies.' ......

Pete Mack left on Friday for Vancouver, where he will spend a few  days before proceeding to his home  at Forest, Ontario, where he intends  to remain an indefinite period.  At the Laidman meeting in Vernon  Tuesday night the Farmers' candidate took tho audience" by storm.  Speaking in his own locality and to  men with whom he has worked on  public matters for a. number of years,  Mr. Laidman surprised even his closest friends by his clear, comprehen- .  sive argument in favor of a farmer fro��������������������������� h��������������������������� "^^1������������������ ^r?v.  representative from a farming community. It is estimated by many who  believe they know that the Farmer  candidate will travel neck and neck  with=-Drr=MacDonald���������������������������in=-the=city-=o������������������  Vernon and that the rural vote will  give him a large majority.  of pensions,   etc.,   could   be   confined  to paper and told in figures.  Miss   Seymour  spoke  in  eulogy  of  Donald said he did not consider the  project possible. The policy he������������������ had  favored while in office had been to  give the work to men living in the  locality where the work was done.  In closing the Doctor submitted his  record of work done in the interest  of the constituency as an argument  fo- his return. On the strength of  that service, he. appealed for support.

Dr. MacDonald was very fair and  quite non-political in his speech. He  said he had even changed his views  in some respects but did riot indicate  the nature of the respects. He was  positive that in his public life in the  past four years he had never questioned a man's politics w.hen it came  to a matter of public business.

At the very outset, he said, his  government had been forced to adopt  a policy of retrenchment; pay-as-you-  go; as the banks refused to allow advances beyond the assured revenue.  At the same time the government  was called upon to meet the obligations of the old government contracted under the period of frenzied  finance  and   railway  construction.  Dr. MacDonald referred briefly to  the legislation of the Oliver government and went on to show that as a  result of the enforced policy of retrenchment followed from the start,  the credit of the Province had been  brought back to its former stable position. This had meant an increase  in taxes to each and all, but the government .had to have the money and  the most equitable means was adopted to   get   it.     Road   appropriations  in.'exactly the same in amount as that  of ten or fifteen years ago, when  teachers' salaries and the general upkeep of the schools were only fifty  per cent of what they are now).  Alternatively to the adoption of  these proposals: (1) A grant In aid  of all local rates, computed on a population per capita basis, might be  made; or (2) the Provincial Government might take over the entire  school system, thus relieving the  municipalities of their greatest ��������������������������� burden.

THURSDAY- NOV. 25, 1020  A MacKelvie Victory  Hwas llu1 handsome majority given bc. Ihc cily  oi' Vernon and adjacent lerrilory lhal won lhc  contest i'or Editor MacKelvie���������������������������a genuine, practical recognition by llie people who know him best  of his many excellent qualities', and an appropriate way oi' settling an account long past due  General Federal Election  7ov services rendered in ihc interest oi' the locality where hc has made his home. Whal was said  at the outset oi" lhis campaign by lhc Commoner  wc wish to say again. '"Editor MacKelvie has  long heen a staunch Liberal Conservative, and  iu's services in thc j nleresl of the party surely entitle him lo any recognition lhat could bc given  him. His long residence in the Okanagam and  his broad insight info tlie needs and possibilities  of lhe district especially fit him for the position  lo which hc is now an aspirant and lo which hc  has since been elected. No man could be better  fitted to undertake lhc work laid down by the  Hon. Martin Burrcll."  Col. C E. Edgett, Ih.c defeated candidate, need  i'cel no heartburnings owing to thc outcome of  the contest.    Hc put up a clean fight and made  a remarkably good showing, when his inexperience as a campaigner and as a public speaker,  and  his  poorly-constructed  platform   arc. taken  into consideration. Not only had hc lhc strongest  arid cleanest old-parly man  in the fight againsl  him, but even the Premier of Canada, probably  the strongest  campaigner  in   the  Dominion, assisted.by other powerful speakers, with abundant  campaign funds, were" put. in  thc field in order  to   beat'hi in.     It    is    apparent   from   lhc  majorities given, him Where the Farmers were organized, that thcy, as a body, stood true to their  organization anclo lhc Soldier-Farmer Candida lc.  By. (lie same token, il is apparent that organized  Labor either did  not  vole  or  voted  against the  Soldier-Farmer candidate, anti the same may be  said of the Liberals, who, by their district organization, were pledged to support Col. Edgett.   Tl  would seem  that Col. Edgett lost morc than hc  gained by this endorsement.  Thc result of the polling in the different localities proves conclusively that nothing of importance can bc gained in an election without organization. Take the vote at Enderby. Armstrong  ancl Oyama, for instance. At these centres' thc  United Farmers are well organized and arc prepared to work to better their condition and the  condition of thc country generally. At each of  these polling places Edgett was given a major-  itv. On the oilier hand, where localities were onlv  recently organized, or the .organization was oi  thc old non-working type, the,, results were thc  reverse, and the Government nominee won' out.  If the United Farmers will lake a lesson from  this .campaign^ and by it J earn thc importance of  "effective organiziitYon'\TiHlVl1^^lT^itliT^^6"f"^t"lVcT  and unorganized political entanglements, thcy  will havc gained quite tis much as could have  bcen gained bv them bv lhe election of Col.  Edgett.  In Ihe Provincial campaign the United Farmers havc no unorganized political entanglements.  They can hack their candidate, Mr. Laidman, a.s a  farmer���������������������������one of their own class, and a man wilh  a clean record and of ability. Mr. Laidman has  won supporters till along the line in the campaign  lie has been conducting, and in some localities is  mccling audiences numbering twice and three  limes those wliich gather to hear Dr. MacDonald.  lhc Government candidate, if the Uniled Farmers profit hy llie experience in the federal elcc-  lion. and work a lillle harder for Iheir candidate  On > January 1st, this year the Commoner said,  speaking of the political outlook: "Just now the  political pulse feels quite normal. What it will  be a year from now, or two years from now, may  bc quite another slory. If a period of depression,  of hard-limes, of failure in business, is to follow  the presenl period of superficial prosperity lhc  countrv is enjoying, it will come in thc winler of  1020 oV early in 1921. Thc politician that can  look ahead will 'gel in ahead of thc slump.' Premier Oliver is not a political novice. He knows  when lo jump. And if wc can go by the signs of  the times, he will conclude to appeal lo life people  in lhe fall of 1020. By lhat lime he will have  demonstrated the belter part of his policy tmd the  workabililv of his legislation. Whal he cannot  show by the fall of 1020 hc will nol bc able lo  bring out in 1021. for condilions will bc less favorable. It is a safe wager, therefore, lhal thc  next Provincial election will bc held in 1020."  Whal wc said then has come Irue. Without  presuming lo prophesj* in connection wilh lhc  federal election, wc would point out lhal lhc  same signs which preceded the Provincial election arc now lo bc noted in connection with thc  Dominion. And it is almost certain that Premier  Mcighcn will go t'o thc people cither before or  directly following thc next sitting of the Federal  House. Dispile all we havc heard from Federal  speakers in thc byc-clcclion campaign just ended  about Premier Mcighcn having a mandate from  Ih.c people to carrj*- on, it is generally felt lhat all  this talk is dimply lo hold over until thc leaders  gel a line-up oif the situation. This Premier  Mcighcn has succeeded in doing on his recent trip  West. He has become acquainted wilh lhe people  nnd with conditions. That he will now put ihe  business of thc country into shape so as to appeal  .to thc people for a clear-cut mandate wc firmly  believe. Heretofore in Canada, Avhen.for any reason lhc Premier has had to resign and another  has been called to form a government, the governmcnl has been formed and an appeal made  to the people for a mandate to proceed. This the  present Premier has not done. He, therefore, is  in the uncomfortable position cf occupying lhc  seal of an autocrat; named by a few self-constituted governing individuals to carry on thc work  of Premier Borden, yet without sanction or authority from the people.  Premier Mcighcn gives promisc of being one  of Canada's greatest Premiers. He is a genuine  "lind" just at" this lime. He is too good a man to  become involved in thc aftermath of war commercial intrigues which havc, if reports be true  infested governmcnl circles at Ottawa since peace  was declared. If hc had lhe backing of a strong  mandalc from lhc people, he could exercise thc  power thc people want him to exercise and make  a clean' house of what is generally believed to bc  a very dirty one. Without such a mandate hc is  morcorless at thc mercy of the "inner circle" by  whose choice he became Premier.  piHCIVICfRI  \A\i\. work, and no pl^y n  Mates Jacfi. a Ju.ft;bby.

After discussing pros and cons of lhc  whole silualion wilh bolh bankers- and business  leaders, I would submit lhis as the majorily analysis of the outlook: Severe unsetllement prevails today. Things probably will become worse  until the turn of Hie year. Already quite a number of concerns arc receiving emergency treatment from banking interests. Others are to bc  lei sink. Thc year-end failures arc likely to be  very numerous. Price declines arc looked for in  all lines which have not yet undergone thorough  readjustment. On the olher hand, raw materials  and commodities which havc already tumbled severely arc expected to begin shortly to exhibit  ���������������������������firmness. When .-retailers lower their prices to  levels in harmony with lhe cost of raw materials,  a spirited revival in buying is looked for. This  recovery, il is figured, should begin to make its  appearance very early in 1921.���������������������������B. C. Forbes, in  Forbes Magazine.  Ewjerfay Community  Wo**  Undenominational.

The True Principles of Citizenship  Speaking on the question of Farmer candidates  in the Provincial election, the United Farmer, of  Vancouver, puts the matter most fairly in these  words:  "We must have our leaders in parliament, not  to promote class legislation, but to see that the  farmers' interests are protected. Considerable  criticism has been leveled at the United Farmers,  but .'let me assure the doubters that the United  Fanners of B.'C. are not sending representatives  to parliament, thej' are going there as straight  Farmer candidates, and as such are independent  to do as Ihcy think, providing il is in lhc interest  of lhe Province is a whole. Il makes no difference what he was before, whether hc was Conservative or Liberal, if he is true t'o his organization, hc is now independent of all classes and  must support legislation- if it is beneficial to the  community as a whole, no matter from which  parly the legislation emanates. This is true independence, and wc arc pleased to nolc that in all  thc recent conventions lhal wc have attended the  delegates have been given a free hand to vote as  lhcy liked and to speak as thcy thought.  "This is,as il should bc in any organization, for  if our delegates arc not broad-minded enough,  and our members of parliament arc not far-seeing cnoug to support the old party only ..insofar  as it works'in the interests of - the people they  represent, then lhcy should not be placed in these  positions of trust. The coming election on December 1st will reveal thc fact of how many people arc really independent, as there is thc largest  showing of Independent candidates in thc field  lhal has ever been known in a Provincial election  in this Province." v  The Wrangle Debacle  'It's''Going to Rain  and you'll sure need a pair of our  lubbers to keep your feet dry and  keep from catching cold."'

PICKSON  PeJJ Block Encjerfry  When France lent financial and military aid to  General Wrangle and sent him inlo Russia to set  up a government independent of the Russians  and to oppose the Soviet government, England  refused to go into the scheme, and left France to  handle the "Wrangle invasion alone. Tliat invasion was the beginning of the end of all Allied interference with thc Russian government. For the  past Iwo years or morc thc Russian people have  been bled'white by the hand of war thrust upon  them by none other than thc financial interests  of Europe, backed,by Britain, France and Italy.  One army after another was equipped and sent to  invade Russia/then Poland \yas egged on and did  assist. This failing, then Wrangle was sent into  Southern Russia and thcrc set up a form of gov-  !eminent which was recognized by France.  No^c .we see the end. of that, invasion���������������������������like thc  end of every invasion in Russia���������������������������a miserable  route. Here is the way it is described in a dispatch from Constantinople: "Sebastonol is thc  centre today of a wild debacle. Rs harbor is  filled with watercraft ranging from war vessels  to0rowboats, all-carrying human cargoes away  from the rising Red wave. General Wrangle's  army, is in eoljanse and the conquering bolshevik  troops occupy the city. The .White troops were  practicallv wiped out in their defense of the narrow neck of the peninsula, where three divisions  checked twenty-two assaults Jay- twenty-eight  divisions of the enemy."  What irony lhere is in thc fact that all the  troubles from which the unfortunate peoples of  JSiirope are now suffering are the direct result of  the interference and the meddling of the larger  nations who, today just as of old, are attempting  to use the little fellows as pawns on the great  world checker-board for pelf and vpower���������������������������and  these the nations which pride themselves unceasingly on their adherence to the principle of "self-  determination" for the little fellows. By the  same token, the cable inform the world that now  since the people by popular choice have voted for  the return of King Consfantine to power, both  France and Britain have declared that the will of  the people of Greece must not be carried out. It  is a funny world over in Europe, isn't' it?       ������������������  Insuring Against Want  Merc continuous effort, accumulation without  a fixed plan or system, niggardly economy on  the onc hand and reckless prodigality on thc  olher, arc not specifics for old age. Wc well  know, that strict attention to business, a policy  of "sawing wood" or thc process of spending  little and accumulating much docs not always  work out in the accepted dramatic formula of  "living happity ever after" fifty. A deliberate  study of results compiled by the Magazine of  Wall Street by an eminent statistician leads to  somc amazing revelations1, which prove that the  aforesaid good intentions do not materialize in  practice.    The figures prove:  1. Al thc age of forty-five, only 4 per cent have  accumulated anything���������������������������and kept it.  2. After fifty, not one in a hundred can recover  his financial footing, and not more than 2 per  cent are independent.  The world has been looking a long time for  a meaner man than the onc who avails himself  of thc pleasure of reading the homc paper a  number of years and then orders it returned  to the publisher marked "refused."

To the Electorate of the North Okanagan Riding:  Ladies and Gentlemen,���������������������������In presenting myself to you in the coming Provincial election on Wednesday, the  first of December, I do so as a Farmer Candidate.  In standing as a Farmer candidate  I am placing Agriculture before party.  In soliciting your support as a  Farmer candidate I do so mainly on  tho ground that Agriculture is the  basic industry of British Columbia  and it is in the best interests of this  constituency and the province at large  that the personel of the Provincial  Legislature should contain a fair percentage of Farmer representatives.  In asking you to pass judgment as  to my ability to serve this constituency faithfully and to its advantage I  am relying on my record in the various local public matters with which  I have been connected in the last few  years.  I do not advocate thai the Agriculturists of tliis province should attempt  to organize for the purpose of forming a Farmers' Government.  I am positively opposed to class  legislation and believe that the various industries of this province should  receive   equitable   consideration.  If returned as your representative  on December .1st I will endeavour  among other things to secure legislation on the following matters:  Legislation with a view to encouraging and increasing the agricultural  production of. B. C. by the improvement of marketing methods and facilities.  Betterment of social conditions in  rural districts with a view to encouraging the rising generations to remain on the farm.  A thorough investigation in the  working of tiie various agricultural  departments with a view to avoiding  the present overlapping and duplication of work.  Efficiency in the departments of agriculture and horticulture with adequate salaries to the officials.  An equitable and definite road policy for the Province of British Columbia.  More economical administration of  the  Public  Works  department.  Government assistance to Municipalities and Hospitals on a definite  basis.  Development of the natural resources of the province with the removal of the present restrictions  placed on prospecting for iron, oil  and  coal.  Conservation of water by Government ownership and control of all  watersheds, and for ' Government  guarantee of bonds for development  of irrigation works.  The above are some of the principal  issues on which I venture to appeal  for your support, and if honored by  being chosen as your representative  in the Provincial House I am prepared  to devote my energies to the best of  my ability in your behalf irrespective  of your political opinions.      ���������������������������  Yours  respectfully,  W.

Capt. and Mrs. Gibson, are  to be congratulated upon the excellence of the service and entertainment given in the Methodist church  last Friday evening. The affair was  one of the happiest and most sociable  ever given in Enderby and the character of the program rendered was of  a very high  type.  Nearly 200 plates were laid on long  tables extending tho full length of  tho body of the church. Those were  served by the Pollyannas, while the  Olympic boys helped in the preparations and the handling of the large  crowd, and the Canipfire girls acted  as ushers. All were appropriately  dressed in the costume and colors of  the clubs and presented a quaint and  pleasing appearance.  After the banquet was served and  appropriate toasts were given, the  following program was pleasingly  rendered, each of the children participating in a manner which showed  clever   training   and   supervision:  Following an address by Mr. Smedley the chorus "Good Pals" was given by several Pollyannas; than a recitation by Mae Eadie and a solo by  Sis Sparrow. Vera Sharpe gave a  recitation and Kate -Broom a song,  which was enthusiastically encored.  A recitation by Antoinette Paradis  was followed by short speeches by  members of the clubs giving information relating to the working and aims,  of their organizations. A duett by  Kate Broom and Grace Brash was  well received and was followed by  Mrs. Gibson who, gave a remarkable  characteristic recitation brincing viv-  idly to mind the horrors and cruelties perpetuated by the Turks in the  Sultan's name. Elsie Lucas was heard  in a recitation and Winnie Large-in-  sweet song with banjo accompaniment. "Darkey Eccentricities" were  given by Julien Robarge and Henry  Walker who were "made up" to bring  down the .house.  After brief remarks by Capt. Gibson on behalf of the club members  and a standing vote of appreciation  from the audience the evening closed  with  singing  the  National  anthem.  condition,  the  new  road  being  quite  impassable.
