Vol. 13, No. 46, Whole No. 696  THURSDAY, FEB. 3, 1920  Subscription, $!3 a year"  WHY   NOT  WINTER   ROAD  WORK?  The    Hauling   of    Gravel    by   Sleighs  Much  Cheaper than   by  Wagon . ,  In the present stress of unemployment, it is remarkable that the Provincial Government does not put men  and teams to work hauling gravel on  the   wagon   roads   they   contemplate  improving   when    the    spring   opens, ithe death on Monday of Mr. J. Dun-  This work, we are told, could be done  at a greatly reduced cost while the  roads are good for .sleigh, and now  when so many men are needing work  should bs a good time to inaugurate  winter hauling.' Soon the roads will  break up, and the spring thaws will  make travel' almost impossible over  some of the roads.- If the road boss  had the gravel by the side of the road  ���������������������������hrfuled wliile sleighing is good���������������������������it  would be an easy matter for. a very  small force of men to < keep the bad  spots in good condition and keep the  deep- ruts from' being cut and the  roads thus spoiled for the. greater  part of the season-. ,     ;  Mabel Lake settlers are wondering  why the. Department does not. do its  winter hauling on this road. - The  roadway is 'now good for" hauling'but  may go out in a few weeks' time.'The  ruts will then be axle-deep, aud haul*  ing gravel or anything,else will be impossible. ������������������ It does seem to lie poor  policy to allow all this good hauling  season to slide by, when men are in  need of employment ancl the work  can be done for so much less.-than in  the summer time or the fall when labor can be fully employed elsewhere.  i GOOD-BYE, VAN ! charge and relieved the stricken wife   ������������������ of any details in connection with the  After Long Years of Service, this Old-  burial,   which   took   place   from   the  Time   Popular   Engineer   Retires      | Presbyterian   Church   on   Monday, ' at    '<2  p.m.,   interment" in   Enderby   ccme-  At tho age of 05 every employee of i0Vy.  tho   Canadian   Pacific   Railway   must|    Mr   slcjoio\vas 50 yoars Df ago.

And no matter h,owjHe iWa(J -vcll ]ike(]  by all who knew  "fit"  he  may be at that age to  con-]him>   for   Ms   iiniform   kin(lness   and  tinue at Ms post, the privilege is notjroadinegs to he]p in any movement in  his to do'so.   -He is pensioned for the Ulc Illterest o������������������ lhe to������������������n and disLr|ct.  remaining years of his life.  There were somc heartbirrnings  on  the Sicamous-Okanagan branc-   of the  C. P. R.. on Monday.    On that clay Mr.  W.  F.  Van Antwerp,  better-known  as  "Van,"   reached   the   age   limit,   and,  automatically     retired     on     pension,  after   thirty-fiver  years  of  service   a_>  engineer   for   the   company,   twenty-  four of which being spent pulling the  mixed   train   between   Sicamous   and  Okanagan  Landing.  These    years    of     faithful    service  ended   on   January   31st  when   "Van'"  stepped" off  his   engine  at  Sicamous:  Tuesday   morning   ho   came   back   to  go into retirement at his rose-covered  cottage   at   Okanagan   Landing."    Mr.  Van Antwerp is a great lover of roses  and     his    beautiful    garden   at    the  Landing   contains   over   one   hundred  varieties.  Engineer "Van" was one of'the best  ���������������������������known  men  on  the  C. P.  R.  system.  His friends, both in the service and  out of it, aro legion. He will,, be  greatly missed1 oh the S. & O. branch,  where he is so. well known. He always had a smile and a cheery word  for all' acquaintances. -'Retiring in  the best of health'and spirits, "Van"  should have many years to enjoy his  rest. ---.-'- ���������������������������"���������������������������,.���������������������������** ��������������������������� ���������������������������. i - -  In his years of service this popular  engineer had - many "thrilling experiences ancl. narrow escapes.. The most  serious for him, and one that came  within an ace of ending his clays, occurred about thirty years ago when  pulling a stock train west of Donald.  They were in the mountains' when  tho .train   went   through   a   burning  bridge. "Van" was .pinned in his  engine under the wreckage for twelve  hours. When finally extricated he was  taken to the hospital at Donald where  lie remained for" eight months while  the broken bones in his body were  growing together again. It was three  years before he could drive an engine  again, but, so perfect, is the C. P. R.'s  system for looking after, its workmen,  "Van" was well cared for ancl nursed  back to health.  Perhaps  the oldest man  on the  S.  .������������������.  o -line,- and -nno-who -has..boon..in  thc  service  with  "Van"  many  years,  ���������������������������is our good friend Agent John Burnham.    To him the going of "Van" is  like the loss of a good of'd pal.  ,r   sr   sr   sr   sr   sr  I.    ts   rs   rs   *s   is  Good morning! Where's your robin?  Mrs. W. J.

ARMSTRONG    LEADING  Win  from   Both   Enderby  and   Vernon  this  Week,  and   Playing  Strong  GRINDROD  LOCAL  United   Farmers   Reunited   ancl   Plans  Laid   for  Greater   Development.  DIED   OF    PNEUMONIA  Mr.   Sam    O."   Skjeie     Quickly    Goes  When  Attacked  by  Fatal   Malady  On Saturday night, Jan. 22nd, Sam.  O. Skjeie packed his tools and loft  work at tho Okanagan Saw Mills,  intending to be back to work Monday  morning. That night a few friends  enjoyed tho evening with" Mr. ancl Mrs  Skjeie, and it was not until they left  for home that Mr. Skjeie felt any  approach of illness. ."He then complained of a slight chill. That night  he was awakened by a sharp pain in  the back' and side. He did not get up  in the morning. Dr. Keith was summoned and pronounced it'pneumonia.  Mr. Skjeie showed no response to any  treatment, and on Friday evening  shortly after 9 o'clock passed quietly  away.  The sudden death of Mr. Skjeie, so  well known by all residents, came  as a great .shock, and the sympathy  of the community flowed to Mrs  Skjeie and-children.  The deceased was a member of the  local lodge Knights u of Pythias, and  immediately  his  fellow knights   took  Messrs. Copeland and Laidman, of  Vernon, attended a meeting of the  United Farmers of Grindrod last  Monday evening for the purpose of  inspiring the members of that Local  to greater activity and a closer working together in the interests of the  f^KaitlirarendiTsW^ri^^^^  At this point there has been "more-  orlcss a tendency to hold on to the  old Institute organization, while at  the same time flirting with the U. F.  of B. C. In the meeting on Monday  night, it wag pointed out by both the  speakers that it was up to the members to decide which organization  they would become part of. tt was  unjust to themselves to attempt to be  part of both, and they should take a  definite stand for one or the other  got togethe under onc banner with all  farmers .of the Province and work  together in tho interests of the industry.  A standing vote was taken, with an  attendance of some 50 farmers, and  the-vote-was unanimously in favor of  sticking to the United Farmers.  wooclie, who moved from Enderby to  the coast a year   or two ago.  Vernon's bonspeil was to have been  started on Monday,., and should'now  he in full swing, but the warm spell  made the ice water and playing was  impossible.

Deep Creek's hockey team braved  the _ soft ice iJtVedn&sd'ay, night with  the'Enderby team,-just for the practice. The game was witnessed by  quite a crowd: It was, however, slow  and somewhat one-sided, the home  team "crowding the visitor's' goal most  of thc time. -c  Two rinks of Salmon Arm curlers  came to Enderby last Thursday after*  noon and slugged, the stones up and  down soft ice against Enderby rinks.  Tho visitors won three out of four  games played,- after which they were  given a supper by the home" boys and  sent home a'shoutin'. u  A Dominion emigration officer .was  i'n Enclerby last week investigating  complaints which had been registered  in-connection with millmen and mechanics coming here to * take positions iu the Okanagan Saw Mills.

It is pleasing to hear that the good  people of Hullcar are again arranging  to hold the social and literary society  meetings which were" for many winter evenings such a success. The inaugural meeting, we understand, is to  take place on Tuesday evening, Feb.  Sth, at "S o'clock, in Hullcar Hall. All  friends should endeavor to attend and  so give our neighbors a good, start in  their endeavor.  Attention is called to the notice of  the Okanagan Saw Mills to their patrons, in this issue of Uic Commoner.  It is the intention of the company to  enforce tho policy of turning off thc  lights if accounts are not paid in 30  days. This policy is similar to that  adopted by the city with regard to  the water rate., By co-operating with  the company as we now do'with the  city cpllector, no hardship need be  occasioned to any patron, and all  will be better served by the policy.

" By  again defeating Enderby in a fast  game on Armstrong ice last Friday  night, and on Monday evening of this  -week beating the Vernon team, our  neighbors now have four wins ancl  only one loss to their credit. In the'  Enderby-Armstrong game, the score  stood 3-1 against Enclerby, but the  game was a good exhibition of hockey  and very fast. The game with Vernon  was less hockey and more' slugging,  the visitors seemingly forgetting to  play the game and going in more for  stick handling and tripping. However, in this the_ Armstrong boys are  quite expert.themselves, and in body  checking they put it over Vernon.  The "'score stood 6-2 in 'Armstrong's  favor.  Enderby has a game ,,'with Armstrong to be played here Feb. 8th,  and one at Armstrong on" the ISth.  On Friday, of this week," Enderby Is  to play Vernon at Vernon, and on the  14th Vernon will coise here for a  game. The present break in the  weather'has knocked the bottom out  of the ice, and these schedule dates  may have to be changed to meet conditions.

By  far thc greater number of our -winter evenings  are spent in the fetid atmosphere of dance hall,  thc social card fable, or lhc pool room. These  may be-all right in their place, bul they deprive  most of our young men and women, and those  older, of lhc Very.clixcr of life in this northern  climate of ours.

H  has been  suggested lhat a similar appeal bc made this  thai  hi''  In a recent remark by Sir Henry Drayton, than  whom there is nobody better acquainted with the  business and general condition of Canada, there  is a very large- and a very important issue involved. Sir Harry said that Canadians were now  in a good business position "if ��������������������������� they only knew it."  As another lias said, it is almost as important  for a people to know their advantages as it is to  have them. The country which is potentially rich  and does nol know il may hc worse oil' than a  poor country which believes itself lo bc rich. The  resources of Canada arc valuable only lo Ihosc  who find and use them. These Iruisinis arc involved in the words of the minisier of finance.  In this connection Uie Vancouver Province  well says, "if Canadians knew their opportunity there would not bc in this counlry a single  unemployed person able and willing "to work.  Thc demand for labor, would far exceed the supply. From the Pacific lo the Atlantic there i.s  profitable work to be done. "Natural resources  everywhere arc crying out for men and money  lo make, ihem useful."  There is a much larger issue involved in this  remark by. Sir Harry Drayton. It is lhe same  issue that has been involved in Canadian economic all'airs for lhc past ecnturv, and particularly Ihe pasl half century. "If thev onlv knew!"  Canadians are well oil', but thcy do nof know it.  Canada is a wonderfully rich countrv in natural  resources, but Canadians do not know it. Whv  havc our Canadians emigrated to������������������thc Unitcii  Slates in larger numbers than our total population in Canada? Why has Canada developed in  population-to only nine millions while in thc  same measure of time the counlry to thc south  developed in population to 120,000,000?

Sinking Fund. The annual instalment due to- tho Sinking Fund has.  I ���������������������������nen paid in full, together with a further sum of $750.00 to cover interest  charge-i and apply on thc deficit. The City is in the fortunate position of  having no debentures to fall duo for many ycars to comn, while the sinking  fund, which is computed on a 4 per cent basis, is earning interest at'tho  rate of (5 per cent; this increased interest, being added to our investments  year by year and thus* compounded, will aid  imperially, as time passes, in  bringing the fund up to par.  o  2. Current Revenue. Receipts on current tax account approximate 77  per cent of the entire levy;-and'the total tax collection is nearly $4,000.00  in excess of that of last year. Water rate collections, also, have been good,  exceeding those of last year by about $400.00. In this connection, it may be  stated that since the change made a few years ago in the by-laws governing, whereby the City ceased to sell water us a commodity, to tenants and  others, and placed this service on a taxation basis, making it a charge on  Me property to which .water is supplied, all loss of watcr rates has been  avoided, and at the present time there is not a single dollar of these rates  in arrear, a complete clean-up being made at each half-yearly collection.  3. Health Department. It will be noted from the statement of receipts  and, disbursements tihat the whole of the amount. expended in connection  with, the quarantine of the Union" Hotel, in the early part of the year, has  been repaid to the City. ".*"  With the aid of the grant made by the Council last year, and the generous  assistance  of the pujntlic, the directors of the Enderby General Hospital  have-becn enabled to add lo the capacity aad convenience of that useful institution.        .The    Board'   of    Directors    are   to   be   con-grata1,ated on the  ..V very  satisfactory  outcome  of their self-denying  and   public-spirited  labors,  and it is earnestly to be trusted that our citizens will  continue to support  . - . -   *t .   i>  tliem in their efforts.

During the past -year" the proposals which 1  had laid before you in year 19*19 for the construction of a permanent form  'of sideNyalk to replace the plank-walks, which, in every Quarter of .the City,  are, falling into serious disrepair, have been given a trial, some 960 feet b������������������  <. shale sidewalk, 5 feet,'wide, surfaced with sand and curbed with, cement,-  having been-built, on George-Street. This experiment,'so far, appears to  have'resulted very satisfactorily, and to have" met with'.-the "general approval  of our citizens.    Tho cost, as shown in the statement of disbursements, was  ���������������������������: - $902.74| or about 94c per lineal foot. c I strongly recommend that this mode  ' of-construction be adopted in all future sidewalk building. It is' dry, affords  a':safe footing for pedestrians and is, to all intents.and purposes, everlasting;  ' and its adoption throughout the City would practically-.do away' with all  _expehse_Lfor the  future  for  sidewalk maintenance. -  Under the  Highways  Act, i-passed  by  the- Legislature  during  the' past  ' yyea'r, tlie Vernon Road",   Belvedere Street and the tower Salmon Arm Road  "will,be ..classified as.JJa Primary._High.way, and'will in future, he cared for by.  .the Provincial   Government.������������������������������������������������������ George 'Street,"-Knight   Street  aiid  the7 Upper  - ...Salmon Arm .Road .which, under the Act, will be'classified  as. a..Secondary  Highway," and-,oi_"which. during thc year, some.much-needed work, has-been'  done, at a cost of ������������������740.71,-will remain in the 'hands of the City; but it is  expected, that there will be some assistance from the Government in meeting the cost of-improvement. and-maintenance.     -    _ .   .    -   '.   -���������������������������-'"-  Several other of the City streets are urgently hv need  of. grading and  .    s ravelling;  and, owing .to tho very great increase of wear and tear .on all  our thoroughfares owing, to the" increased  and  increasing motor-t-raiSc,  the  Question  of  road  construction. and  upkeep  demands,  and  will .continue  to  .demand, considerably morc attention than it has in tho past. .     _   _  The  mode in which  road and  sidewalk  construction  is to bo'financed  ' is  a Question  for your very  serious  consideration.  " To  pay for this  work  nut cf current revenue would involve exceedingly heavy taxation;   to-meet  '.. .it-by. the issue of debentures would  increase  the "City's-obligations,-which  - 'we should  all  much regret to  do,  but it  would   spread  the  burden "over  a.  term of years, so that it would be less severely felt. The decision, ."subject  lo the concurrence' of the,Government, will, of course, rest-with you.  - The heavy and increasing cost of school maintenance is. the most serious  problem at present confronting.you. Your Mayor aud Council have lost no  opportunity during the last few years of drawing attention, both directly and  indirectly, to the gravity of the position in this regard; and as the result  of these efforts, there is some hope that action may be taken by the Govern--   nient_during_the.jiresent_ycar_tp_.Rive^_.tjh.c^_relief so urgently needed.    It is  our opinion that education is, properly, a national matter, and that the  Dominion should co-operate with the Province in taking this crushing burden entirely off the shoulders of the municipalities.. Tho municipalities are,  as it were, the vital organs of tho Province, and for the sake of our country  at large, they must be given conditions under which they can healthfully  carry on their functions, and thrive and develop.  My acknowledgments are due to the Board of Aldermen for their  efficient work and for the pleasant and harmonious relations which have  prevailed between them and myself throughout thc year as well as during  my previous terms in the chair.  1 also, wish to say that I appreciate the confidence reposed in me by  you, the citizens of Enderby, throughout my tenure of oflice as your Chief  .Magistrate, and to thank you for the honor conferred in re-electing me to  preside over your civic interests during tho coming year.

The Practical Work of a Mining School.  tl) Mining students ready to go underground ttt * coal mine near Sydney,  LS. .'���������������������������"'"  (2) Students examining the great landslide at Turtle Mountain, Albert*.  wages and  thus acquire at least ii  Not very many years ago a great  many, people looked on an education  It the University as unnecessary and  perhaps even, harmful   for a young;  man proposing to' enter business  or  Manufacturing.     The old professions  ���������������������������f Law. Medicine    and.   the Church  were,-of   course, different, and: demanded college training; but fitness  ��������������������������� for success in even the-greatest  in-  . flustrial, or engineering - undertakings  - .was commonly supposed to be -best  gained by apprenticeship in, an,off ice  or works, and the boy who left school  ������������������t fourteen to run errands and sweep  ������������������ut tbe office was often lauded as  having outdistanced his rich neighbor who had "wasted" four or five  .years il learning a lot of theory, and  frith it acquired habits of luxury, and  a sense of his  own, superiority  to  Qtber men. =* .-  The above belief was due in part  to ignorance   of   what   college life  . really'is, and in partjo a failure to  - distinguish between the old ahd new  methods   of teaching.     Fortunately,  time has cleared away much of this  misunderstanding and.has proved to  all observant people that nothing can  equal a scientific education as a pre-  ?iaratibn for any branch of advanced  ndustrial work, but it is doubtful if  even now the    public    understands  just what is dene by our Universities  , in- training young men for the Engineering Profession.  Perhaps no clearer illustration of  the  modern methqd  can     be  found-  than in tbe teaching of Mining En-  -e-:"..-f=ring^as-givcn.-for-instance._at.  MeGill.     The.  students   begin their  course in October and spend seven  months attending classes. in Mathematics, Physics, and other fundamental subjects, and in carrying out elementary experiments in the laboratory. Then, after the spring examinations they go to a camp in thc  country, and do practical surveying  for four weeks. This ends their  obligatory work Tor the year, bul they  are urged to spend a* least the main  part of the - vacation iu Machine  Shops or on Surveys or otber en  gineering enterprises, and it i3 significant of the earnest spirit of tho  students  that  fully  80  p.c.  do  this  fair part of the money needed to meet  their next year college expenses.  -  .  The second- year cis similar to tha  first,- except    that '��������������������������� the    work   both  theoretical and practical is" more ad-  variced,"and these first two years are  the same for all Engineering students  no matter what branch-Jof the subject they propose toJpi-actice;.but in  the third year, .they .specialize, and  the minors give a' considerable part  of their time to Mineralogy, Geology,  etc.     The practical work at the end   i*  of this year is still further, special-   pJi  ized and is in,the forhi of a travelling' -'  school..

At one end of the  school proper all of the men are  given opportunities for employment  for the remainder of the summer, in  the mines visited, and thanks to the  broad-mindedness    of   our  Canadian  Mine Managers (many of them oia~  MeGill graduates) the students thus  get invaluable experience, and at the  same time earn very substantial pay.  - The value of this very practical  summer school can only be fully appreciated when the men return to  college for their fourth and final  year, which is devoted to a study.of  the advanced technology of Mining.  Matters which might .otherwise bc  difficult to understand are Q'lickJy  appreciated, the Intordepcndpnce oi  theory and practice arc made clear,  and tbe students complete their  course with a more mature and balanced understanding of their piofes  aud. at tbe same time    earn    food [sional    duties    and    responsibiliUaa  than could possibly  be'attained    by  any  amount  either  of  study  or  of,  practical work laken alone.
