The photo was accepted and the Clerk instructed to convey  to the Department the city's thanks.  The following communication was  read:  Armstrong, B.C., Nov. 30, 1920  To the Mayor and Aldermen, City of  Enderby, B:C.  Gentlemen:      Beg ito    say   re   the  *. drowning accident Nov. 15th, in which  my daughter, Jennie Peters, lost her  life, owing to   the   car   in   which she  . was riding rgoing. over the end of an.  unprotected   bridge   situated   at ��������������������������� the  .' end of one of your city streets, I have  - after,  getting   V~ga.l   advice,   consider  the city   of   Enderby   responsible for  this   unfortunate   accident,   and   bave  decided,   after   considering  the   question,, to offer to settle damages with  you and your council by accepting the  costs' of   funeral   and   all   other   incidental expenses incurred directly and  indirectly.     0  '- " The  full amount that I will accept  is six hundred and sixty dollars.  Should you not decide to make a  settlement on these terms I am prepared to go to the full extent of the  law, and from legal advice I have on  the subject, I can collect from your  city a sum far in excess of these  figures, but my wife and I would prefer to settle this unfortunate affair  without going to any litigation, and I  trust that you gentlemen will give this  offer, all the consideration you can by  doing so it will I feel sure be the most  satisfactory way of settling the matter, and also the cheapest in every  way.  Thanking you In advance for your  attention  to  this  deplorable  and  sad  =^affairrin"=which^we^ost-onejithat=Avas=  very dear to us.  Yours very truly,  JACOB PETERS,  (His mark.)  The Clerk reported that, in the absence of the Mayor, he laid the communication before Acting Mayor Coltart, who instructed him to reply as  follows:  Jacob Peters, Esq., Armstrong, B.C.:  Dear Sir: I have to acknowledge receipt of your letter of the 30th ult..  stating that you consider the City of  Enderby responsible for the accident  which occurred at Enderby on the  15th ult., whereby your daughter, Miss  Jennie Peters, lost her life, and  offering to compromise your alleged  claim for damages ln respect of said  accident at the sum of $660.  In reply, I am instructed by His  Worship the Acting Mayor, to inform  you: (1) that Municipalities have no  control over the banks of navigable  streams; (2) that this city has no  street running to the river; (3) does  not and will not admit any liability  whatsoever for the deplorable accident in question.  The Council and people of Enderby  have the deepest sympathy with you  and Mrs. Peters in the irreparable  loss which you have sustained, but,  as you will no doubt realize on further  consideration, it is impossible for  them to assume a responsibility which  is not legally theirs.  Yours faithfully,  GRAHAM ROSOMAN,  City Clerk.  On   the    unanimous    vote   of   the  Council   the    action    of   the   Acting  Mayor and Clerk was endorsed.  A   petition    from   D.

Dunwoodie, wireless operator, ^residing with his parents, Mr.  and Mrs. Joseph Dunwoodie, of 1041  Fort street, Victoria, all of whom well  known in Enderby and district, died  at his post while off Triple Island  when his ship was on its trip to  Prince Rupert on Nov. 30th. He was  sitting at his desk, when he was seen  to put his hand to his heart and fall  forward.    He  expired  immediately.  Alan Dunwoodie was 25 years of  age. He moved to the coast with his  parents two years ago. The body  was take to Victoria for burial, and  the remains laid to rest in Ross Bay  Cemetery, his fellow wireless operators acting as pallbearers.  Hon. E. G. Prior, lieutenant-governor of B. C, and some years ago  Premier of the Province, died at his  home In Victoria on Monday. His  death creates the third gubernatorial  vacancy in the Dominion, the other  two being in Saskatchewan and Alberta, which were creeated by the expiration of the terms.  the  public  is  giving hearty  support.  *  To-morrow night will be the night  of the >long whistle. It* will also be  the night of the annual dance given  by the Okanagan Sawmills staff. This  annual affair was inaugurated by Mr.  Marley who, as manager, instituted  the idea and carried it out. On this  occasion the'best music obtainable is  provided; eats for everybody and to  spare are served, and all that Is asked  is for everybody to enjoy themselves  and help to make the evening enjoyable to everybody else. Everything  is provided free of cost, a compliment  of the mill st?.ff and the company.  Mrs. J. W. Dill delivered a very inspiring lecture in the Sunday School  room of the Presbyterian Church on  Tuesday afternoon. Her topic was  the satisfaction and good one gets in  daily life from service���������������������������service to  the state, service to the community,  service in the home, service in whatever sphere one finds himself. Her  words were an inspiration to all who  had the pleasure of hearing them.  Mrs. Dill leaves for the Coast this  week, where she will spend Xmas  with Mr. and Mrs. Frank Dill, who  are leaving shortly for California to  spend the winter.  -.X    -  It is estimated by Mr. Wm. B. Rim-  mier, of the Eanlthead Ranch, Mara,  that the unusually fine fall weather  with abundant moisture and no snow,  has meant a saving to him of $4 a  day in the cost of feeding his dairy  stock. .Mr. Rimmier was a visitor  to Enderby on Wednesday. He says  the present snowstorm will put cheer  into the farmers of his district, who  have succeeded in doing a great  amount of extra fall work and have  their land in excellent shape for big  crops next year.  *  Enderby is to have a steady supply  of coal at last. In recent years the  coal supply has been very uncertain  and unsatisfactory. The few who did  not throw out their coal stoves and  price of salesbooks will come down.  This impression, however, Is due to a  misunderstanding as to the use made  of scrap paper. New paper cannot be  made from scrap paper,���������������������������it Is used In  the manufacture --ct chip board, box  board, building paper, tar paper, etc.,  and the decline in the price of scrap  paper is due to the fact that board  mills, paper box mills, building paper  mills, tar paper mills, etc., have  closed down due to the lack of demand at this time for their products.  There will be no Increasing demand  for scrap paper until such time as  there Is an increased demand for tar  paper, building board, etc., which will  not be until conditions in~these lines  of business improve very materially.  The businessman is taking the chance  of paying higher prices for sales-  books by waiting."  NOVEMBER  WEATHER  N.   H.

Mrs. Bacon was visiting here last  week, returning to Armstrong on Saturday.  Wm. Ellison returned to Okanagan  Landing on Saturday, after a few days  here.  The monthly meeting of the U. F.  was held on Monday, and several matters were brought up, amongst which  was the unsatisfactory way in which  parcels, etc., are handled at the station; also the blocking of the post-  office road by freight trains. Also  various matters in connection with  the Provincial election. It was decided to have a series of monthly socials to help out the funds of tho Local during the winter, to be held on  Saturday nights.  - Robertson's bridge is now finished  on Riverside drive and the road is  again open for traffic.  The Graham Bros, are getting out a  nice lot of poles and posts off their  land, part of the Cadden place.  The school trustees have just' finished a new fence around the school  property, E.

Later the floor was cleared  and a short dance with refreshments  was participated in.    Mr. MacCready.  who was In charge of the affair, de-.  serves great credit for the successful  evening.

Municipalities Awake to Needs  There does not seem to be any  question now but that the Provincial  Government will listen more attentively to the demands of the municipalities if these demands are again  made concertedly. The most noticeable discrepancy between the platforms of the Liberal and Conservative speakers in the recent campaign is noted by the Summerland  Review, on the question of Provincial  assistance to municipal taxation, and  that paper points out that the Oliver  policy in the past has been one of  masterly inactivity, and did not  shine very brightly against the proposals of the. Opposition leader. It  is now obligatory on the municipalities to press for some legislation that  will result in substantial aid in their  financial problems/Enough was  said In the late election to show the  Government what is expected of it.  Humorists are not all dead. Some  of them are offering to teach women  how to vote. ���������������������������Chattanooga News.  Say It With Flowers  C. J. C.

The Greatest Power in Modern Life  The National Lutheran Council which met'in  Chicago last week, was asked to enku-gc ihe  powers of Ihc Lutheran bureau Tor publicity  which has been in operation for thc past four  years. Dr. O. H. Pannokc, secretary of the  bureau, in making the appeal said. "The mosl  outstanding fact in our experience has been the  silent revok:iion by the church at large0in its  feeling towards the newspapers. When this  work "first began lhc leaders of thc church were  suspicious of il. . Thc rank and file were of the  opinion- lhal" the' church had noihing. to gain  through the ncwispupers.

THURSDAY, DEC. 16, 1920  OKANAGAN  COMMONER  Under the Agricultural Instruction Act, passed  by the Parliament of Canada in 1913, the sum of  len million dollars was set apart for expenditure  by the provinces on agricultural instruction and  demonstrations during the ten years ending March,  .'i'i, 1923. Four years of the period have now  elapsed, and $3,400,000 has been distributed  aniono- thc provinces for the benefit of agriculture. With the year 1917-18 the grants to the  provinces (wliich have been made on a gradually  discynding scale) reached their maximum, there to  remain until the completion of thc period.  in the total grant for the 1'r.xxr years thc provinces have participated as follows:  P. T. Barnum delighted to tell of  his thousand and one amusing experiences, especially some that happened during his first itour of England with "the greatest show on  earth." One of the best is a joke  on 'the "champion hum-bugger"  himself. - Barnum on a leisure eve-  ' iiing "bought a ticket to an English  music hall.

Under it's provisions, the sum of $500,000 was distributed  among the provinces of Canada on the basis of  population. The purpose of the grant was lo  enable thc provinces to enlarge llie foundation  upon which a future structure might bc raised,  and no special restrictions were placed upon the  expenditure of thc moneys thus provided.  Bach of thc provinces decided I'or itself how  ihe federal aid to agriculture should be expended.  British Columbia'Spent ils $220,000 appropriation  iaigciy in demonstration plots and olher instructional work among farmers. -  Demonstrations in field crops and horticulture,  dairying, poultry-keeping, silo construction and  vegetable growing and storing have been carried  out; co-operative variety tests and competitions  in production for boys and girls, as well as for  their seniors, havc been organized. Thc grant has  greatly assisted thc work of Women's Institutes,  while the organization of marketing and lhc extension of publicity havc becn made practicable.  /i: movemenl lo 'establish agriculturalvand do--  hies tic science leaching in thc schools owed ils  inception, in 1914, entirely to lhc influence of the  federal granl, whieh lias since defrayed a large  part cf thc cosl of the undertaking.  , The grant has iiia'dc possible the' appointment  6f the superintendents and instructors necessary  to the carrying on of-the various projects. Fourteen officers whose salaries arc met entirely from  the grant have been added to the staffs of the Departments of Agriculture and Education. These  include a Director of Elementary Agricullural  Education and three district supervisors; two district agriculturists or representatives, a markets  commissioner, an editor of publications, a plant  pathologist, two horticulturists, a soil and crop  instructor, a silo demonstrator, and a superintendent of poultry work.  Saskatchewan has gone further, and a division  for looking to the development of co-operation  and marketing was established in 1914 and is  financed by the granl. Thc work0is in charge of  a director and an assistant. Onc of the most successful enterprises conducted has bcen in the cooperative marketing of wool for the sheep rearers  of the province.

A special car was fitted up a.s a poultry  receiving ancl killingsiation and operated for six  weeks'over certain lines of railway. Demonstrations were given in the proper methods of killing,  plucking, packing and grading. A large quantity  of literature in thc form of bulletins and leaflets  has becn distributed, and upwards of 300 cooperative organizations have becn registered.  Wants the Deposit Back  The multiplicity of candidates in lhc recent  ���������������������������campaign caused many lo wish lhe Provincial  Governmcnl had not removed the requirement.of  a money deposit from candidates." The Vancouver Sun says: "During lhe recent Provincial campaign lhe opinion was pre lly widely expressed  lhat the legislature made a mistake in removing  the requirement of a money deposit. Twenty-  eight names on the ballot in Vancouver are too  many. Several of those who submitted themselves to"thc electors had no higher motive lhan  lhc satisfying of personal vanity. They knew  thcy had no chance whatever of success, and thcy  were not advocates oi" any particular principles  which they desired to bring up for discussion.  Thcy shtyply wanted to experience the chesty feeling which "comes to;a, man who imagines hc is in  the limelight. This sort of thing will bc a great  .deal worse next lime, unless something is done-to  'slop il. If all the cranks had been awake to lhcir  opportunity, lhe ballot, might have contained  twenty-eight hundred names instead of twenty-  eight." If a deposit of a hundred dollars' were required, nobody of any importance would be deterred from running."  The atmosphere of the  smoking car lent itself to reminiscence. "Captain," asked the  hardware salesman, "would you  mind telling me how you lost  your arm?" "Not' at all, not at  all," replied the bronzed officer  with the empty sleeve- "It happened this way. Wc were due  for anolher turn in lhc trenches  lhe ncxt day, so they were giving a dance for us lhal night  back in tlie rest camp. A few  welfare workers were there and  among them lhere was thc  culcsl little girl I ever met. 1  managed to dance wilh her the  most of thc evening, and toward thc end wc wandered out  in- fhe moonlight.

HOPE    TO    PRINCETON  The   Old   Promise   that  the   Provincial  Government   will   Build   the   Road  Again   Comes   to  the   Front  Recent reports from authentic  sources state that the provincial government has about decided to build  a road between Hope and Princeton,  says the Summerland Review. The  proposed,road will not he by the original Cleveland survey but along the  Dewdney trail as examined by District Road Engineer Gwyer some  months ago. It is said that this road  will be made about ten or twelve feet  wide as a secondary road, but will be  quite suitable for through traflic.  Later it  is the  intention,  according  to" rumored  plans,  to build  a primary  road as the provincial highway along  the Fraser   canyon.     It   is   said   this I  latter project will be made more easy!  because of the intention of the C.P.R..  to double-track its line in the canyon,!  for which purpose it will use the Canadian   Northern   between   Petain   and  Basque    for    the    ncxt    three   years,  closing its   own   stations   at Spences  High-Piiced  Shortness.

Of   this  amount, about, it says,  $65,000,000  was    'received    for    ex-ports.    These  ligures  easily .'Constitute     a    irecord  for itihe Oam'aidian dairy 'in'dustry. In  1910, the total value was estimated  at   $100,000,000   and   'the     exports  amounted     ,to     nearly   $24,000,000.  Although  the  production    ot     most  dairy  prodaicts  mado a' fairly     constant increase  during  the  period  of  ;the   war,   the   phenomenal   record   of  1919   must   be   attributed   in   C'ange  j measure     to     market       conditions.  In   common   with   oljher   food   products,  .the   prices  o'f     milk,    ihutter  and   cheese  rose   rapidly  owing    to  a  world   shortage.     Then,  too,     the  moire rapid growth of urban centres  as compared wtitih ,the rural population has enlarged 'the 'home miarket,  without  a corresponding increiase in  production.      Further,   the   shortage  of   labor   on. farms  thirougihout   the  war   restricted  increased   production  nuateria-S'ly,   .and   tlhe"  com.pa|rat'ivelly  rapid  expansion  of    the    condensed  and   powidered.  milk itrado    affected  the cheese 'industry ..Kl'versely.   Each  of   these  factors <tended  to  increase  prices.     Thus,  in  191S, tlhe average  price  paid  for cheese  by  t'he Dairy  Produce  Commission  was   23   cents,  f.o.b.   steanisb'ip   at   Montreal.

Mr. Meighen has before him yet another by-  election which is likely to give hi hi some anxiety,  savs thc Vancouver Province. Major Burnham,  elected in 1911 and again in 1.917, in West Peter-  bo ro, Ontario, resigned about the time tliat the  Meighen ministry was formed. He considered  that his mandate was exhausted and so offered  the people a chance to make another choice.  While Major Burnham had an enormous majority in the war election, the constituency is normally a close one. ?*!ajr>r Burnham had a majority of only forty-two in the reciprocity election of 1911, when he defeated that accomplished  politician Mr. .1.

Mr. Hall, was also a Liberal.        a  In the provincial election hist year West Petcr-  boro elected Thomas"'Tooms, a Labor candidate,  defeating Mr. Gillespie, the Liberal, who had previously represented-the riding,'.'and Mr.Sodon,  Conservative. The constituency is mainly urban,  comprising the city of Pclerboro and a few  townships. The Farmers' party endorsed (he Labor candidate, who is now a supporter of tlie  Drury ministry.*- The other Pclerboro riding,  which is rural and held by thc Conservatives in  the House of Commons, was not contested by the  Liberals in the provincial election. The Liberals  supported the Farmer candidate, who was easily  elected. " / _  It will be seen that the vacant seat is an uncertain quantity, with any one of four parties eligible lo win it. Any combination of two of them  would have fair prospects.  The ultimate of an excessive wage rate is at  hand. Hosiery workers at Lowell, Mass., are now  asking to have their wages cut, preferring lower  wages to idleness.  'i  kJi  Cj,.  ".I  fl
