 ������������������.<--?'  Itilflfttl  0Mm0  IN WHICH IS MERGED THE ENDERBY PRESS, AND WALKER'S WEEKLY.  Vol. 13, No. 42, Whole No. 692.  THURSDAY, JAN. 6, 1921  Subscription, $3 a year  UNITED  FARMERS  Officers   Elected   for   1921   and   Dele-  ���������������������������        gates Appointed  to  District  Meeting.  At the meeting of the United Farmers of Enderby Local last Thursday  evening, the election of officers and  appointment of delegates -to  the dis-  ��������������������������� trict convention to be held at Enderby  on Thursday afternoon, Jan. 13th,  were the principle matters of business, coming up. There was al fair  attendance, and-, much interest was  shown   in  the  general  discussion  in-  ' dulged in on such questions as the  result of the recent elections in this  riding, and the general good of the  farming  community.  President Coltart, in his remarks  pn ��������������������������� the outlook for the organization,  as a political factor and as an "organization looking to the good of the  community as a whole, said that  while he felt somewhat dissatisfied  with the- outcome of the recent elections, he did not feel discouraged.  He believed there was a demand  for the farmer to become a political  factor in-the public life ���������������������������of the Dominion,, and that, as a body, the farmers must get together and stand together so as to make sure of having  enough representatives ^������������������of agriculture in Congress to watch, and work  in the interest of that portion of the  , Dominion's citizenship. He felt that  there were reasons for the defeat ol  the Farmer candidate and the Sol-  dier candidate which,did  not appear  . on ~the. surface, but which were-well  understood by anyone conversant  with the v political moves in the recent campaigns. It would not improve "matters to discuss them, but  he, thought there was much of profit  that might be. derived from -the; re:  cent' campaign if $ the farmers * would  tuce tiie fuels squarely and seek, lo  profit thereby..    *-���������������������������     '  A greater disappointment to him  than the defeat of the farmer candidate was the poor financial support  which members of the organization  gave to their candidate. If the total  amount subscribed to the campaign  fund in the Provincial 'election by the  farmers'of the district wer.e assessed  to the entire membership of the various locals of the North Okanagan, he  - said, it would mean about 2 cents  per member. He did not think jit -was  - praiseworthy- either to the farmers  or the returned men's organization,  for the candidates to have to be out  of pocket, one to the amount of $600  auu   ullO   utJitii    4>_.ot.    iOi    _!_������������������   icgiiliilciLC  expenses of their campaigns.

'  ��������������������������� In the election of officers the following were chosen: Jl. J. Coltart,  presidents Hichard Blackburn, vice-  president. "Directors: R. E. T. Forster, A. L. Glen, J. Jf. Morris, Chas.  Garden, Chas. Parkinson. Auditor, A.  E. Robertson. -.  It" was decided that some remuneration should be paid the secretary.  This was left in the hands of the directors, whose duty it Is to appoint a  secretary and fix the amount of remuneration. .  In accepting the office of president  a second term, Mr. Coltart stated  that it was the duty of the membership to give to the executive of their  organization their undivided support.  It should be the aim, and was the  duty of the members to attend the  . meetings of their Local at least once  a month, for the exchange of ideas  and in order to keep in touch with  the work of the organization. Membership fees should be paid promptly,  /and it should be the pride of every  member to see that his Local is in  a financially sound condition so as to  enable it to accomplish Its objects 'in  fche interest of the agricultural industry in its relation to the general welfare of the community.  Mr.   Blackburn,   as   vice-president  elect,  pledged  his  undivided  support] XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX  to President Coltart, as did also the  newly-elected  directors.

Within two days it will cover all the Rockies to the Mexican  line, and all the" lowlands east of  MeridJ.an=90-and=the^Mississippi=--Riv--  er and south to the Gulf of Mexico.  It will move southeastward covering  the Great Lakes and south to Cuba by  January 14, and then northeastward.  Following a day or two behind this  great'warm wave will come a moderate storm wave, and behind that a  moderate cool wave. This* disturbance will have great energies, which  Robarge    has    been'wI11  be  expended  in  causing    warm  weather, and the heat will hold the  moisture, so that a moderate amount  of precipitation only may be expected  with but little snow even in northern  sections.

' "It runs so smoothly,"; he said, "you can't feel it. Nof  a bit of noise, youcan't^hear It. per-:  feet ignition, you .can't smell it. And .'  speed, . why .tt sjmply. whizzes, ybii  can't .see it."  "My word," exclaimed the awed  Britisher. "How do you know the  bally thing is there?"     -  Getting  Away from  Old   Phrase*  Getting the r'ght word In the, right  place often makes wit, while getting  the right word in the wrong place becomes humorous. A young preacher  having charge of ihis 'first funeral  know that it was customary, to<*an-  nounce after the service that those  who wished might step up to view the  remains; but he thought this was a  hackeyed phrase, and instead he said:  pass  "The _ congregation   will    now  round the bier."  .The other night, about 11:30, a  tourist in a flivver, with curtains  drawn, came east on Maple Street  tihrough town, says-the Columbus Advocate. He only had one lamp burning, on the right side. As he approached the Brooks Hotel corner,  the driver did not notice the stone  marker, and - he slammed squarely  against It, pushing the marker about  twelve feet. The shock put out the  other light on the car, and the driver  got out to see wihat he had hit. He  examined the obstruction, and exclaimed .to his companion: "My  Gawd, Bill! We're in a graveyard.  We've just hit a tombstone!"  The savage in man must be recognized before the saint in man can be  realized.  Difficult Walking  "Help! Help!" cried an Italian laborer near tire mudflats of the river.  , "What's the matter tflere?" came a  voice  from   the  construction  shanty.  "Queek! Bring* da shov! Bringa da  peek!   Giovasna   stuck   in   da   mud."  "How far tn?"  "Up to bis kntes."  "Oh, let him walk out."  "No, no. He no canna walk! He  wronga end up."  Penticton Hospital is in bad financial shape, owing a sum of between  $4,000 and $5,000, to offset which bills  due by patients total only $3,000.  There is a steady loss on maintenance  and the rates may be raised next  year.  A sounding by Perry . five miles  from the North Pole failed to reach  bottom after the lead had been let  down 9,000.  The first cargo of German paper  suits and overcoats has arrived in  Chicago .from Hamburg, and will be  retailed at $2.50 per garment.

Time was  ��������������������������� when candidates for these offices were numerous,  and the local contests were occasionally warm if  iiol bitter. How conditions have changed.

T!l������������������    <tr.r\nj..,\  of the average  cannot he explained, nor can it'bc remedied while  the main object of all government���������������������������municipal,  provincial and Dominion���������������������������is and must'bc for a  number of years, the increasing and collecting of  taxes in'order to meet the conditions and the  liabilities already incurred. There can bc little if  an y new work undertaken, and few men havc the  patience fo simply mark time while paying off  lhc debts already contracted.  It is to be hoped lhat Mayor Barnes and the  members of thc 1920 council will consent to act  lor another.term. The business of the lown is  safe in lhcir hands, and lhcy can bc trusted to go  the limit to make further public improvements if  thcy can be made without adding to the taxation  while conditions remain unsettled. Jn the past  lerm thcy inaiigiiralcd thc permanent gravel sidewalk policy. Tin's no doubt may be continued in  1921 lo the limit of the town's income for that  purpose. Thcy deserve praise for thc excellent  public service of the past year and should feel  that that 'service has been appreciated by tho  people of Enderby though public expression of  that appreciation may havc been lacking.  Men who pretend to be leaders are not justified  in taking the position that all talk and all argument against the existing order of things is to be  branded "Bolshevism." They would so brand  every argument not in linea with the class system  of thc past and present age, and, with this branding, they believe they can silence the cry'-of the  masses and put on the screws to keep them in  ���������������������������silence. How thej' do deceive themselves! But  thcy deceive nobody else..  We have no fear from Bolshevism in Canada.  We havc nothing to fear from the rule of lhc people in Canada or any place else. T'he fear so frequently expressed does not come from lhe people  ���������������������������here nor anywhere. It comes from the persons  and institutions which havc becn enjoying special  privileges and waxing fat; and t'he fear is not so  much for the state as for themselves. Commenting on this phase of thc unrest problem, the London Times is quoted as saving:  "There is a vital difference between thc attitude of thc public now and its prewar attitude  towards unemployment. Before thc war unemployment and starvation mitigated by charity,  were acceptable. During the war thcrc was work  for all, and thc women and children of the poorest classes were1 better fed and belter clothed and  shod than ever before in the history of the country. Agitators are already asking crudely if the  capitalistic system will provide for thc proletariat only when the system is fighting for its  own existence."  Let it bc conceded at once that wc have no  room for Bolshevism in Canada, if by that term  wc mean lawbrcaking or contempt of law. But if  by Bolshevism wc mean a condition of mind not  in harmony with what.we have seen going on in  high piaccs, then would it not bc better to demand that we shall not havc in Canada the conditions that breed contempt of law and law  breaking? Before any country can havc Bolshevism it m!ust have the conditions" that make good  citizens contemptuous of law, and the thing to do  is not to beery the evil but outrool thc thing that  causes the' evil.  Class Rights vs. Individual Merit  Pncjerby Hospital Foard  Invitations were issued this week by thc Hospital Board to all who contributed' to thc Hospital  Building Fund-and thc public in general, asking  all to attend thc formal opening of the new wards  just finished, the building of wliich was undertaken-thc early part of thc year, and to raise the  funds for which a hospital drive was put on May  15th to 24 th, thc total amount' subscribed being  in the neighborhood of $2,100. The purpose of  the Board in extending thc invitations, which, we  -undcuistand,-hav-e_bGeiVissucd-to^e-vcm^c'ubscriber,-  is best told in the circular invitation itself:  Men' everywhere will agree with Premier  Meighen when hc said in a speech before thc Law  Society of Manitoba the other day. that "the  period wc arc passing through now is something  of ah enigma, but this can bc said of it^ that there  is a greater tendency to cass consciousness, to a  belief in class interest and to a reliance on class  organization than in any previous age. I say this  without special reference to farmers. The tendency is general. Indeed, we are Jjccojmng organized and inl'er-organizcd until such a thing  as individuality is well-nigh forgotten, and llie  air is thick with assertions of class rights, f wish  \Ve had today more plain Canadians, men and  women who depend for success on themselves,  on thc excellence of their own work,,'on individual courage and enterprise and thoroughness, anc|  who reason out their convictions on- public  questions in the good old way as citizens of Canada and not as members of any class or group."  This is all very true. JJBut' did it never occur  to men of Premier Mcigheu's type that the spirit  ol* class organization is only bringing home awl  into civil life t thc spirit thai dominated the  world on the battlefield for lhe past half decade?  That spirit was drilled into the men in the field,  at lhe pench, behind the counter, in the counting  house���������������������������everywhere. And docs anyone Relieve  thai lhat spirit of class organization can be eliminated with lhe changing of thc clothes? Or conditions? Class: organization is here to stay. This  niirst^bc^recognized^and^rcckoncd^wilh."" ==  "Through  thc generosity of yourself and  others, and your kindly co-operation, we havc  been enabled to complete the erection of lhe  additional wards which were so much needed in  order to accommodate those requiring hospital  care and treatment, and, al thc close of our term  of office on the Hospital Board, we desire lo let  you see the manner in which the money placed  nt our disposal has been expended.  "In conjunction with the ladies of the Hospilal  Auxiliary and Ihe Matron, we take lhis means of  extending lo you an invitation lo the. formal  opening of the new- .wards, cn Thursday after-  toon and evening, .la'niiarv (5lh, 1.921, beginning  at 2 o'clock.  "Refreshmentswill be served, and you will be  given an opportunity to look over the building,  :md to s������������������'o for. voursclf how.'well we havc met  your wishes in the matter of addition."  Without the aid and co-operation of thc public  wc are all aware that it would, have bcen impossible for the Hospital Board to have accomplished  lhe splendid improvement recently made; this  Ihe members of the Board realzie fully. But let  us not overlook thc fact that to thc Board, the  Matron and Hie Hospial Auxiliary there is also  due the sinccrcst words of appreciation from the  puhlic. Each has filled a very important func-  tion and. tlirough the hearty co-operation of all,  Enderby has a hospital that is a credit to thc  community. It will bc up to the public to show  lhat the work of thc Board and co-workers is appreciated, and the best way to show lhat appreciation, it seems to us, is to put in an appearance  at thc formal opening and give credit wherc it is  due���������������������������and when.  The War to End War  Yes, everybody knows that thc Great' War was.  fought*to end war. politicians, preachers and  statesmen lold us so. It was lo be the lastwar.  As soon as Germany was beaten then pcoce would  come upon a new world and everything would be  lovely. The military spirit would be killed off I  armaments would cease; naval construction anti  coast fighting machines would be a thing of the  \nxsl. Sweet Democracy���������������������������pure and undefilcd���������������������������  would bc supreme, in a world -made safe for it.  As for the men who did lhe fighting in the Great  War, all had their fill of it and were prepared to  accept the word of thc diplomats and leaders who  lold them so. But what havc wc seen in Europe  since peace was' declared? Wars fo make war;  diplomacy, deep and dark, engaged in intrigues  that can have but one ending���������������������������more war.

"hold up" "developing them until the  weather became cooler.    During the  of  "Which <of the two tours accomplished by the Prince of Wales was  the best from your point of view.  On many occasions since my return  to England, this .question has been  asked ftie, and always in reply I  have said, "My point of view is that  of a Press Photographer, and speaking as such I have no hesitation in  saying that the three months tour  in Canada was. decidedly the best.  'My answer has evoked no small  lamount of surprise, and has invariably resulted in another query  beine put-"Why?������������������ .  < To that query I have replied, "Because in Canada I had excellent  ���������������������������facilities for doing the work I went  to accomplish. Thanks to those  facilities I obtained far better pictures than I was able to obtain on  the last tour with the Prince of  Wales."  Comparisons are, I know odious,  and if in the following brief statement of facts I draw comparisons  between events which happened in  Canada on the last tour, I trust that  'my friends who so nobly assisted  me in Australia and New Zealand  Iwill not take offence. Facilities to  Jthing. Rob the camera man of the  facilities for taking his picture, of  the facilities for developing his  .negatives, of printing from his developed plates, and of dispatching  Jimmediately his finished prints to  ithe hundreds of newspapers and  magazines who are clamouring to  .reproduce the pictures, and you have  robbed him of his rail. Give him  facilities for taking the pictures, and  ileave it at that, you have crippled  "him; and handicapped him terribly.  .So, I am afraid I was handicapped  in Australia and other parts of the  ; Empire which I' visited on the last  .Royal Tour. I do not say that I  iwas intentionally handicapped. Far  .from it. I . believe that those re-  'sponsible for the arrangements in  Australia and New Zealand were as  ���������������������������anxious _to help in the work _of obtaining permanent records in picture  form of the incidents of the tour  as were those whom I met in Canada. . What I say.is that largely owing to lack of experience, many details which by the "outsider" were  ^regarded as purely' minor 'details  jwere   overlooked,   and   owing   to   a  Cariet^ of circumstances, I found  lyself-working under very considerable haJndicap.,. As a Tress Photographer it is ray aim to prodv.ee the  ipest possible results, to give to the  bublic and _to hand' down to future  fenerations "speaking" picture records of-the incidents of the historic  world tours of * "Our Young Man."  With the picture results of the Cana-  idi������������������n tour, thanks to the  splendid  r3TW -������������������������������������������������������... -_T������������������r      ^     ���������������������������      ��������������������������� rm       .    ���������������������������     l*-���������������������������-      *W--  voya^e I dreamed fond dreams  happier times in Australia, and anticipated the good time I would have  working in a well-equipped dark  room on board the Royal Train. But  alas! my dreams were rudely shattered, for on the Royal Special there  was no provision for a Press Photographer, nor was it possible to "rig  up" a dark room, since the journey  through Australia was accomplished  by trains over varying railway  gauges. Each State in the Commonwealth appeared to me to have  adopted a different, gauge so that  the rolling stock of one system-was  useless over another system's track.  I quickly gave up all hope of being  able to develop and print my own  negatives during the journey and  entrusted the work to others when  I could find people who were, ready  to undertake the task.  It is a fairly easy'matter to find  dark rooms and operators in the  large cities and towns like Melbourne and Sydney, bat it was by  no means a small-undertaking when  we got "into the wilds."  During the tour we seldom remained more than a couple of days  in or near the smaller towns, and  very naturally during cur" stay all  business was suspended and every  moment given up to a whole-hearted  "joy-making." Since it was essential that I should ever have my  camera' ready it was obvious tliat  I could not shut myself up in a  dark room for hours, and- since  every other man was "joy-making"-  it., was hardly to be conceive4 that  the local photographer would readily forego his pleasures far the *ak*  of developing my platesJ. So it cam*  about there were. endless delays in  getting my pictures. to the press*,  Often during the Australian tour I  would work all day with the camera,  and spend all the night, shut up in  the dark room of a local photographer,7 professional ��������������������������� or amateur,  doing my best to make up for lost  time. I was very - nearly caught  "napping", .at Bridgetown when we  met with the accident. We.had only  just left the station, the train moving at not more^ than 10-miles an  hour when the accident happened.  Happily at , Bridgetown I had not.  exposed; all my plates, and I was  sitting down resting .-before- going  to, ."my sleeping- compartment to  change some plates when {.heard 8  curious' smashing, grinding noise.  Then an attendant came running  into, the carriage, shouting: "My Goq.  the Prince's coach is" overturned-  I jumped up and to my horror ������������������nw  thatJrue enough the.cofch fejjvhicb  ���������������������������facilities I was aiiorcted oy rne  ���������������������������C. P. R., and all the Dominion officials, I am satisfied, and the public too, I believe, was satisfied. But,  with regard to the results achieved  ,on the last Royal Tour I cannot  .speak with such confidence.- Frankly I am disappointed, but I have  'this consolation, I know the pictures  obtained were the best under the,  ,������������������t times, very difficult circumstances. During the three months  'tour with, the Prince of Wales in  Canada, I worked under positively  ideal conditions. The C. P. R. Royal  Train contained a splendidly equipped dark room, and everything was  ���������������������������o appointed that at times one forgot one was on board a train, travelling in the far west. One imagined  one was back in a well appointed  London studio. Never once did I  have to trouble myself regarding  the dispatch of my prints. Once  they were ready, willing hands attended to the duty of dispatch. So  smoothly did the arrangements proceed that during the whole of the  Canadian tour not a single day passed but I was able each night to place  in the possession of theJTtoyal Suite  a complete set of the pictures which  ( had taken, and not once did I miss  the mail with the pictures for which  the Press of the World was clamouring. One anticipates certain difficulties when travelling thousands  of miles, difficulties are part and  parcel of the Press Photographer's  life', and they have to be.overcome.  But one above all else which from  my point of view made the Canadian  tour so thoroughly successful and so  thoroughly enjoyable was the conspicuous absence of the "difficulties  to0 overcome."  To  deal  with  my  difficulties  on  the last tour, I must commence with  the  wonder-warship II. M. S. "Renown."    When  I  got aboard  her 1  discovered to my horror there was  no dark room wherein I could work.  Thanks to the generous assistance of  the officers of the ship I succeeded  in "rigging up" a dark room  in a  gun support.   Heavens!, what-a dark,  room  it Was.    Built of solid 'steel,  exposed on the outside to the glare  of thc tropical sun, with no possible  ventilation once the door was .shut,  it was worse than working by the  side of a furnace.    How many times  I   was  forced, when :in "the   tropics  to  beat  a  hasty  retreat  from   my  dark   room,   gasping  for  breath;  I  'vould not dare to tell, nor would I  ��������������������������� Jare to disclose the number of plates  .v-hich suffered inconsequence of-my  ���������������������������olreat. '  But   an   even   worse    dif-  .iculty presented itself than the-fur-  ...ce-like uaSn loom.    My chemical's  ���������������������������ot warmed up'to such an extent'lhat  iji'tcn f did not.dare use.them, and  f could not.get a bit of ioe on board  _I:c s!:ip io  Lrir.g  thj tcnipevatui't!  af the fluids down to anything ap-  mjoachinj? normal/  So, rather than  risk'spoiling scores of valuable his-  ' v1c negatives, J w������������������������������������ obliged to.,  the Prince of Wales was riding was  lying on its side.    By this time the  train had stopped arid officials were  rushing to the rear where the overturned coaches lay.    To my intense  joy,  I  heard the' well known  voice  of Lord Louis Mountbatton, shouting "Where's Brooks?    He must get  a picture of this.'.'   I ran along with.  my camera and was in time to get'  a   snap   of   His' Lordship   crawling  through the window of one of the  overturned coaches.    In the excitement of the moment I did a most unheard of thing.,   I actually exposed ���������������������������  one plate twice "and did not discover  my  mistake   for   some . time -afterwards.;' In the accident, the Prince  of Wales was the coolest of anyone.  He remained until the last inside, the  overturned coach1 and when he crawled out he was hugging'a thermos  flask and gripping: an old and favorite   brier  pipe.     JHis  first  question  was  to  know  whether  anyone  had  been hurt, and oh being assured that "  none had even sustained a  scratch  he  laughed  and went  back  to   the ~  wrecked coach  to  sort out his. belongings while I took "snaps" to my  heart's    content.    There ��������������������������� was    one  thing   both  in  Australia   and   New  Zealand about the tour which to me  was most noticeable and that was  the  extraordinary  "free  and  easy"  manner of the people.   They surged  round the Prince and in many places  literally mobbed him, so enthusias-  '  tic were thej' in their welcome.    In  New Zealand particularly I remember the Royal train was "inspected"  time and time again.   No permits to  approach the train were necessary,  nor were permits necessary to gain ,  entrance to the railway stations as.  was the case in Canada. Some thirty'  or forty press photographers "commandeered"   the   Royal   Special   at  Auckland   and   boarding   the   train  travelled with us as far as Rotura  where we   were'  held   up   for   the  strike.   At Rotura there was a little'  incident which t do not think has  been reported.    A big country fair  was being held, and the Prince one  evening entered into the, "fun of the  fair"    riding- on   the  roundabouts,-  shooting at bobbing eggs, and flinging balls at cocoanuts." Both at the - .  shooting ranges and cocoanut shies,  the Prince created something of a  sensation.   A splendid shot with the  rifle, H.R.H. wrought havoc amongst  the bobbing eggs and the ''running  door."   At one of the cocoanut shies,  after H.R.H. had floored three nuts  with three balls and decided to- try  his luck   again   the   proprietor   of  shies,   not   recognizing- his   Royal'."  patron, observed,   " 'ere   you,   think-  you.|p lopping bombs at Jerry again.';  These is real--honest, cocoanuts,- not  square heads." . That   evening   tho  Prince' returned to the Royal train' J  well laden with cocoanuts t-nci taw-;  dry .charms   and   prizes   from   the>.  various   shooting   ranges   and" side'  shows at the fair. j  SELFISHNESS  CONDEMNED  ���������������������������S&  "Farmers' cooperative organizations have difficulties just as farmers'  secret orders = have had .difficulties.  The difficulty ic not with the organization but with selfish,, designing  individuals, seeking and securing  membership   in   the - organization.  "The designing man outside of any  organization is less dangerous to thc  organization than the selfish man in  the organization. The immoral, man  in the church does the cause of religion more harm than the most corrupt  man out o������������������ the church. The selfish  leader who compromises for special  favors to himself is the man most  responsible for the failure of farmer  organizations.  "The mistake has been that special  interests, politicians and others unfaithful have been severely denounced when found among others, forgetting that these exist among fanners'  oiganizatipns. Selfishness is to be  condemned wherever found. Nothing  will ruin an organization sooner than  selfishness. d  ��������������������������� The "safest plan in any organization  is _to - cultivate brotherly kindness  among the members and keep ��������������������������� the  selfish from becoming leaders.

KOURY  Optometrist &  Jeweller Enderby  There will doubtless be a feeling  of disappointment among the officers  and memberslr'p of thc United Farmers _at the showing made by��������������������������� their  candidates in the recent provincial  elections, but, considering everything,  it is doubtful if even the most sanguine had any ��������������������������� good reason to expect  much better. Tho one possible  exception was the Nortn Okanagan.  There it was felt that the farmer candidate had considerably better than  even a chance of winning, and the  membership=of-=-the=-district���������������������������locals  were generally confident Mr. Laidman  would carry the constituancy. . A  stronger candidate could not have  been chosen, and as far as can be  learned he put up a splended fight  and was strongly backed up by the  organization everywhere. Unknown  politically, Mr. Laidman was well  known as a business man. of the Okanagan, and developed, splended platform strengh during the campaign.  The Verribn vote was the deciding  factor in the fight. It gave Dr. Mac  Donald a majority of 435, two hundred more than the majority he was  elected by. Such a majority for a  Liberal candidate in that city is aston  ishing, to say the least, in view of  the fact that a week before, Mr. Mac  ���������������������������Kelvie, a conservative, got a majority  of 364 in the same town, a positive  proof that the Vernon vote, at least,  was, not a party one. The Okanagan Commoner holds that the vote  in North Okanagan was^one of the  town against the country. We ques-  toin this view. The- Vernon vote  rather seems to indicate that the people of that city are strong "home".  partisans and voted, not for thegover-  enment, but for the home man in both  Federal and Provincial elections.���������������������������R.

D. Robertson, Canadian minister of  labor, declared in an address delivered at the session of.- the fourteenth  annual convention of the American  Association for Labor Legislation  held in New York last week.  ��������������������������� Telling of the method by which  special arrangements have been secured whereby a workman sent to  employment over a hundred miles  distant if recommended by a goveren-  jinent employment bureau, travels at  , j reduced rates on railways, he stated  y, i that more than 30,000 men have been  %  placed in employment at distant  points who could not have been provided with jobs within the territory  served by the individual office. As  a result of .this policy, he proceeded,  in only 770 cases was it necessary to  go outside of Canada to  fill  employ-  Intellectual   Courage  Intellectual courage enables one  to stand by his opinions, and at the  same' time to respect the opinions of  others.  We find in the printing, world many  opinions on many subjects. These  opinions influence people either directly or by reaction. If a' person is  young, - receptive and plastic, lie  adopts the opinions ihe hears for his  own, be they right or wrong; but if  he is self-assertive, defiant, he forms  opposing opinions, and advocates  those with great vigor, condemning  meanwhile the .opinions of others.  We all know the two kinds well.  And as ordinarly seen, the fault that  is at tho foot of botli is intellectual  cowardice. One man clings servilely  to the old ready-made opinions  of the trade which ,he finds, because  he is afraid of being called rash'and  radical; another rejects the traditions  Increased   Newspaper  Costs  SATURDAY,   JANUARY- Sth  Albert Ray and Eleanor Fair in "Vagabond Luck".

The price quoted is 7 cents a pound,  or SI 40 a ton. ' **  .. "This is an increase of $40 per'.ton,  or 40 per cent, over the price paid for  newsprint during the last six mojiths  of 1920.  "It is an increase of 75 per cent  over the corresponding price for the  first six months of 1920.  "The increase of $40 a ton now "announced is alone greater than the  total price- paid by the Free Press  Cor newsprint as recently as May.  1916.  ' "The price is f. o. b the mill, and to  it the freight rate must be added.  The freight now- paid by thc Free  Press from it's source of supply is  $19.50, fis against $1* a ton paid  four years ago. Thin will make a  total cost laid down of $159.50, as  against $46.40 in 1916, an increase of  $113.10���������������������������or over 243 per cent."   - ���������������������������'-  These become the progressives of the  times.  .

The emplopment service, also served  its useful purpose during the winter of 1919-20, he declared, when the  federal government rendered aid by  way of cash gratuities to unemployed  returned soldiers.  "It was estimated that $45,000,000  would be necessary to meet this situation," he said, "but largely owing  to precautionary measures against  abuse, the amount actually disbursed  was less than $5,000,000"  ���������������������������Dealing with present conditions in  Canada .Mr.  Robertson said:  "During the summer of 1920 every  man in Canada willing to work had'  employment. In October " indications j  of serious contraction in business ap- j  pard;. not until December, however,'  was there any substantial amount of  unemployment in Canada.  There is sure to be a big demand  for skilled and unskilled labor in the  building trades this coming year if it  is not ^strangled by further increases  in wage demands. Building can not,  however, go on extensively if construction costs are to be further increased. Much therefore depends upon the successful.adjustment of wage  rates"for the new year."      ���������������������������" , :  dares look the "devil "in the face and  tell him he is a devil.
