THURSDAY, JANUARY 20, 1921  Subscription, $3 a year  DISTRICT  MEETING  United   Farmers Consider  Resolutions  to   be   Presented   in   Provincial  Convention  The District meeting of the United  Farmers of this section of the Okanagan was held in the U. F. Hall last  Thursday afternoon, attended by thc  officers and some 50 or 60 delegates:  from the several locals.  From Armstroiig two very important resolutions were introduced and  endorsed: one relating to Orientals  owning land and the other increasing the membership fee to ^$5 per an-  . num. In support of the latter resolution it was argued that unless farmers were prepared to. get down to  business in the matter "of financial  support to, their organization, they  cannot hope to make it helpful to the  industry or to themselves, and the  sooner they realize that it means  they must take on the responsf  bility that comesi to each the better  for themselves and for all. In opposition to the resolution, it was argued  that the proposed increase in membership fee,would mean the death of  the smaller locals.  From Enderby Local two important  resolutions were ' presented and endorsed without opposition. .They^re-  lated to the opening of the Indian  reserve .and to the utilization' of the  water power ��������������������������� at ��������������������������� the Skookum , Chuck  for hydro-electric purposes and asking the federal government, to look  into the matter without. delay-  President   Copeland   being   present,  X "    ENDERBY   BRIEFS X  * X X  XXXXXX*** XX  Good morning!

Up  to a year or two ago'lMrs. Bogert, was  most active in every good, work, and  her uniform kindness and good cheer  will always be remembered by those  who knew her best.

He advised his  hearers to read in advance the \17th  chapter of Mark.  There   need   be   no   disguising   the  fact:    Enderby   was   disappointed   at  the outcome of the hockey game between the home team and Armstrong  last Monday night.    And perhaps the  most   disappointed   of   all    were  the  boys on the team. They hoped to win.  They   expected   to   win.     And   their  supporters   looked   confidently   for   a  win.     That  they  failed  was   not  because of any lack of hard work.    It  was   a . hard-fought ' game,    and   the  home   team   took  the  offensive  from  the  start  and  set  the, pace  hot  and^  strenuous.    Where they'failed was in  lack  of combination  in pushing into"  goal.    Some of the players seemed as,  anxious to take the puck away from  -  their own  players  as  from  tljeir opponents", and," while playing fair combination up the.- ice, they' seemed to  weaken  close to  goal.    This  will  be  ������������������  overcome .with a, little practice, and..  if .we are to judge from, the favorable  comments of hockey fans, who drove  up from Armstrong to see the game,  Enderby. has the  strongest team" put  on the ice in recent .years,, and they,  are certain to give a good account of -  themselves in the game - against Ver-,.  non tonight and in future games. ���������������������������  Armstrong  was   first" to  score,  but ���������������������������  this  was  followed  in  short order by.

Many shots  were made on  the goal;,-  only one got by-the goalkeeper.-   This,  made the score 4-5, and another shot"  came so close to landing that it was   '.  called  by  the -spectators ' but .not allowed by the goal umpire.    The home  team worked at a terrific pace to get  by    with    another . but   failed,   Armstrong  succeeding  in   making  a   fast  run and scored the sixth goal shortly  before time was called.  cThe   game  was  umpired   hy  H-   J.

The picture play is not of the  ordinary "Fatty" type.

Must Comply with Regulations  Much of the trouble found by small communities in dealing with thc Government is, caused by  lhcir non-compliance with' cerlain regulations  in going to the different departments for consideration. Failure to comply wilh thc requirements of the department, or a certain Act,,brings  little or no response from the Government, and  then, in many instances, the Government is condemned, and unjustly. Enderby experienced this  in connection with thc Hospital: For a number  of months repeated efforts were, made, through  evety possible channel but the proper one, to get  I'or the Hospital the regular grant given under  the Hospital Act. But the regulations of the Act  were not complied with, hence there was no response to thc repeated applications. As soon as.  lhe requirements of lhc Act were fulfilled, the  Hospilal grant came forward, and absolutely no  trouble has bcen experience since. _  .Something of a similar nature is involved in  connection with the Government library which  has been placed in Enderby privisionally by the  Provincial librarian. Enderbyites have been  given to understand lhat this library is an established fact. This, it appears, is not the case. The  library books have been permitted to come to  Enderby, and havc becn enjoyed by many readers, but certain regulations of'the Library Act  June not been complied with, r.xxd the department  is now demanding "that."the library association in  ���������������������������Euderby-he regularly organized under the Act,  or the privileges under ,lhe Act will be withdrawn. . ���������������������������    ��������������������������� ���������������������������  fn another column will bc found an advertisement for a meeting of lhc Hospital Association  on the 21st inst, when the question will have to  be. decided whether Enderby is to have a library  under thc Library Act or not. Those interested  will attend.  Tlie friendship of one  lhat of every fool.  ise man is better lhan  A Mecca for Summer Toasts  California is the great attraction for winter  tourists. It has no rival. Put .for summer travel  ���������������������������for the summer tourist���������������������������British Columbia has  California beat a thousand ways���������������������������in everything  but roads and service along the \yay. Those Cal-  ifornians know how to build roads, and they  know, how to put up thc accommodations Ib-i!  thc average tourist enjoys paying for. Tt is in  this respect that we in British Columbia are deficient. We have thc natural, beauty of mountain,  ..lakc-and -vallPAr-dri-ve.wnys,J"-iit-do-i.o._ know.how-  to commercialize the asset. We make no effort to  provide thc accommodations thai tovurisls demand, and our ittckIs arc only fair-weather driveways at best. As a people British Columbians do  not know thc value of our scenic asset. Wc do  not make the most of it, either for the good of  our own country nor for; the enjoyment of our  tourist friends. "Not"������������������������������������������������������having experienced llie influx of to ii ri st ni on-py ��������������������������� we do no t r cal i ze wh a t a  pleasant and profitable industry wc arc missing.  If wcdidrwcVvoiddiibt hear this quihhlina about  prnnahenl road building and the 'development of  thc tourist industry-������������������������������������������������������'������������������������������������������������������The tourist spends his  money and admires the scenery. That is what he  is out" to do. .The scenery costs nothing, and he  takes nothing away." It is an undiminishing asset, and the more wc draw to enjoy il. the greater  will hc lhe number coming next year, and ncxt,  for ycars to come. Each season sees thc industry  grow, and thcy take nothing out of thc country  lo deplete thc asset.  It would pay British Columbia to spend many  millions on roadbuilding. if only lo take care-of  the tourist travel. Bul the beauty about this expenditure is that it would be to the good of all  who use the roads and all who don't.  The man who.docs an injury is more unhappy  than ll.c man who receives it.    .  The Taxation Problem.  as responsible for the position into which B. C.  municipalities have drifted, Mr. Loutet says:  "No one of these contributing causes of our  present financial difficulties was in itself responsible and it can be shown that even all these together could not have becn the cause of our  troubles.  "An increased levy oh the land or eyen thc improvements0 sufficient to meet our needs, would  be disastrous to the landowners, especially when  wc lenow that except iri a few cases, the present  high rentals do nottshowa fair interest return on  a conservative valuation of the land and improvements.  "Thc business tax, trade licenses and similar  makeshifts arc only petty hindrances to" business  and the revenue lhcy produce does not justify  iheir existence. ,}  "Leaving for thc moment our sources of revenue, let us return to our sources of expenditure.  In the first place il is no doubt quile fair lo charge  directly to the land, expenditures for roads, sidc-  walks/watcr mains, sewers ai d thc general running expenses of a municipality.  "But when thc state decided that for the good  of thc state it was desirable to provide a first-  class0 system of compulsory education, can it be  shown thai lhis is a fair charge againsl the land.  "Taking it for granted that it is not desirable  to charge the cost of education directly to thc  parent, surely it is equally true lNal it should not  bc charged to lhc landowner who already is providing everything else necessary* for thc running  of lhe municipality. Thc government recognizes  liiis and provides a grani but the grant is insufficient.  "Education which thc state makes compulsory  for reasons of slate, should be a state charge and  the cost.equitably distributed through lhc income  tax which is generally admitted to bc thc fairest  tax. Thc government will say that it could not  properly care for thc educational needs of the  province from onc central office, but if it will  admit that thc cost of education should be a  charge on the province as a whole, a system of  administration could bc evolved which certainly  could not be less satisfactory than the presenl  one which is so consti tilled ilia I neither school  board nor municipal council can avoid friction  between those bodies.  "While it is difficult to provide a general cure  for thc troubles of the various municipalities, I  believe lhat if thc government were to assume  thc cost of education and hospital treatment, that  most municipalities would find immediate relief  and future financing-made easy." -���������������������������--  Flattery is like a painted armour, because it  affords delight, but is of no use.

The  time is ripe for securing such an agreement  now."  In-a nutshell the above is U. S. Naval Secretary  Joseph us Daniels' solution of the world's naval  problem. Thc proposed "naval holiday", he said,  was not good. It was like applying a poultice  when surgery is required. Winston Churchill's  proposal in 1913 for a naval holiday failed, he  said, even before it started. An international  agreement "with all or practically all nations  which will guarantee an end of competition in  navv building," he presented as the only alternative to the building by United States of a navy  powerful enough "to command the respect and  fear of thc world."  Secretary Daniels dismissed as unworthy of  discussion the proposal for an American navy  .lessJhan..cc^ialJo_Uic_mps.t.p.owcrfu]^cajjp>wHii.  lhe world, "because it is a waste of money to  spend money on an agency of war which would  bc helpless if needed."

Gus Langelier, superintendent Experimental Station,-tap Rouge, Que.,  writes in Experimental Farm notes:  It is thought that farmers keep  hens until too old for profitable win-t  tor egg production and it is also a  common belief that late hatched pullets commence to lay only during the  following spring. To throw some  l'ght on.this subject, It was decided  in 1915 to compare early pullets, late  pullets, yearling hens, and old hens  as winter lavors, at. the Cap Rouge  Experimental   Station. t    ,  The "experiment began on the first  day of November and ended on tlte  last*day of February, during five consecutive years. The.number,of birds  in each pen was about twenty-five.  a'id the whole lot_occupied the same  bruise. A strict record was kept of  a'l lfecd   consumed,  also  of  all  eggs  ���������������������������produced by every hen. At the beginning and at the end of each experiment the birds were weighed so  that, in the spring, the gain _or loss  i-i weight -covtld be"credited or debited to them. S - . - ��������������������������� .  If the.cost'of production of one dozen of eggs, during winter, is taken  _>.s 100' for early pullets, matched before May. Jt would bo represented by  249 for yearling hens, by 280 for late  pullet������������������s'. hatched after April, and by  S4S for old hens. Tn other- words,  when pullets hatched before RJfay produced a .certain number of eggs at a  cost of $1.00, yearling hens produced  the same number at a cost of $2.49,  pullets hatched after April at a cost  of  $2.80  and. old hens  at  a .cost of  .$8.48  Pioneers in Peace River District.  \  U is sometintas objected that,  though early pullets lay more eggs  ihan yearling or older hens, the size  of the eggs is such that they would  bring much less if ever eggs were  sold by weight. Taking the figures  from the present experiment, we find  lhat,- for the same weight of eggs.  when it cost $1.00 to- produce them  with early pullets, it cost $2,35 to  produce them with yearling liens,  $2.92 with late pullets, and $8.10 with  old hens. It will be seen that, as expected, the weight of eggs from hens  was a little larger than that from  early pullets, but the difference does  not materially change the figures for  the cost per dozen.  The birds used for this experiment  were not specially bred for egg production, so that the early pullets put  in each year were not from better  stock than the yearling or older hens.  Two seasons, the yearling .hens used  for this experiment "were the same  birds, with the exception of a very  few which had died, as the ones in  the pen of early pullets of the previous, year, and in both cases they  were, for cost of production, below  the new lot of early pullets taken indiscriminately in* the farm flock.  That early pullets are the cheapest  producers   of   winter   eggs   has   heen  ..told and  written so often that it is  like   an  old   story.    But ^a  carefully  Gfei?de/pf&ine/ura  One August morning ten years  ���������������������������go, a Dominion Cabinet Minister at  Ottawa interrupted for best part of  a day the normal course of business  to unfold to me, a sympathetic,  travelling Englishman, his vision of  the New North West.  He had just returned from a long  tour right through tho Peace River  district, up the Mackenzie Basin to  fort McPherson.  "We have *��������������������������� wish," said ho with  emphasis, "to- induce settlers to enter as yet the new Promised Land,"  ���������������������������this,-.remember, was in 1910���������������������������"I  speak ef the future only. But I am  satisfied, that when tha present  prairie lands are all disposed' of,  then this back country will be taken  up, because it will pay pe**le better  to secure land there than to bay the  price that will be asked for the  other.  "Much work has to Im dene first,  however. Rivers have to be made  navigable and the land has to be  surveyed. My journey waa made  to .ascertain if these ttftdertakinga  would be Justified. Aad mj verdict  is yes. though this land lie! north,  -It is not appreciably colder than the  southern portions ��������������������������� of. tha province.  At Edmonton the climate la as favorable as at the International boundary, ���������������������������win* to tha lower Altitude;  And far tha same reason, together  with ���������������������������ther contributory conditions, a  cottple of hundred miles further up  country makes little difference."  In 1914 came the railway gang,  and in 1916, when its work was  -done, ia pressed the bionoors. This  year 1 have followed in tkskt trneks  and, reflecting on what I aava anon,  1 endorse this wisdom.

But where the  occupation is farming the mystery  is explained. Nowhere south or east  have I seen better crops, and last  year tbis district prospered when  others nearly failed. One man  gleaned 120 bushels of oats to the  acre, and 48 bushels of wheat. He  is located about twelve, miles above  the Crossing and floats his grain  down thereto in scows, freightage  ten cents per bushel; and with a  stream running nine miles an hour  ho doesn't lose much time.  Just north of Dunvegan, on the  14th July, I plucked oats, four feet  high and upwards by my -pocket-  measure. ' And wheat, rye, timothy  and indeed ail kinds of hay, were  luxuriant. A man may be no-agriculturist- or authority on soils, bat  even a fool can't mistake tha evidence of- growing crops.  The pioneers, I said, are pressing  in; ana more than pioneers. Wise  men, not merely from the East, but  also from the South and West, are  nosing around te pick up the "snaps"  and secure their stake in what will  surely���������������������������given the subjoined conditions���������������������������be a rich country.
