THURSDAY, MARCH 2-1, 1921  Are We Going- Ahead or Sliding1 Back  Several years ago when thc city of Enderby  purchased a dumping ground, provision was  made early in each year to havc a'clean-up day,  when if was customary lor the litter and refuse  ol' winter, in back jrards and on sidestrects to be  gathered up and carted away io thc dumping  ground. Complaint was registered then as it is  today because of the inaccessibility of the dumping ground, bul it was thc best that could be had  at the time, and it is no more difficult today than  it was then,- and it was made use of then as it  should bc now.  In recent years, and particularly this spring,  thc old practice of dumping refuse along thc upper canyon road at the edge of thc city limits has  been revived, and today, within a hundred yards  or so of the city along ihis favorite plcasurcdrivc  arc dumps of every conceivable spring cleanings.  Can wc as citizens of no mean' locality afforo  to wink at this practice and allow it to continue?  Havc wc no civic pride tliat any one of us should  desire to spoil this favorite road for pedestrians  lo the*upper canyon hillsides, when, for a few  dollars, we could have,lhc lefuse hauled away  and, deposited in the place provided by thc cily  to receive it? Surely Enderby cannot.afford to  be less progressive today lhan it was six or eight  years ago..  0 Aside, from this phase of the question, there Is  the matter of thc health of the community that  should bc considered, if not by thc individuals  who would use a public driveway as a dumping  ground, then by the provincial and city police  whose duty il is to prevent it.  Enderby should havc a skating rink for next  winter's sport'. Let's remember the words of onc  who xxscd to say lhat "it docs not take much  strength to do things, but it requires great  strength to decide on what to do."  Now that the United Farmers have decided as  an organization to keep out of politics, it will be  difficult, for some to find a place for them as an  organiza tion in the service of <_ the ��������������������������� community,  and there i������������������ the danger of the movement simmering down into a shadow and blowing away.  Wc sincerely hope this thought will not bc allowed to develop, for we believe there is a service  to the community the organization can perform  and perform better by staying out of politics than  by going in���������������������������a service more important and far-  reaching lhan could be performed through thc  political arena. And in so saying we would not  lead anyone to think that we believe we do  not need representatives of lhe agricultural in*  dustry in our legislatures. Wc need farmer rep-  re^ cntajlives just as much as wc need representatives of other callings and professions. Wc do  not, however, share the opinion of somc that  membership, in the organization should be confined to farmers. For we look upon the movement more as a people's movement than distinctly a faritiers' movement, and wc believe lhe  organization can only achieve permanent good in  the interest of all when if is so considered and  so made use of.  Then why not enlarge our vision with regard  to the United Farmer movement? Why nol increase its scope of usefulness by making if a sort  of League of Communities for the bettering of  local conditions���������������������������something on the lines of the  League of Nations idea? Looked upon in this  light, and moving along on co-operative lines,  wc can sec great good coming out of such an organization, linking up all communities, with the  object of assisting each by and Ihrough the cooperation; of all.  Is not the one.great drawback in all our. community life in thc multiplicity of organizations,  with too many societies overlapping and accom  plishir.g lillle if any good? Arc we not oyei-  organized in every walk of life, and with no organization lhat brings^ townspeople and farmers,  tradesmen and mechanics, professional men and  merchanls,  together under one common head?  Today lhc members of;'one organization are  -striving in their own selfish interest without con-  sidering'thc good of thc other, much the same as  the various nations have striven in the past and  arc striving today. Perhaps lhcy arc, to a very  large extent, using the League of Nalions to advance thc interest-'of one against the other,even  now, bul lhc League will not bc so used long.  When its biggej- usefulness is recognized nations  will discontinue to misuse it. And when wc alter  our perspective with regard to the United Fanners ^movement perhaps wc shall make bigger and  better use of it as an aid to bettering our comnuinitv interests, aU for each and each for all.  Premier Oliver's  Favorite  pass  "Passing the buck" is a game lhal politicians  play. Every politician plays it some, but all are  not successful in the same measure.

And taxes are going up all the  lime, and Ihe service i.s gelling poorer. The people are lired of h.baring-Ihis plaint ol lhc Premier. The}' look llpon* it as a half -truth that is  as good as V.* full lie.- .The J'people of British Columbia do not ask'more of the government than  lhcy are willing lo pay for. But they do expect  .something for the taxes Ihey are called upon to  pay" and will not be long satisfied with this  raven's ci'v of Honest Jolin.  Ft cost the Province $2,309 to run fire prevention ads in the newspapers in lhe months of June,  July and August last:  No Additional Taxation Powers  Premier Oliver informed a delegation from  Ihc Vancouver city council the olher day that  there was little hopeJof relief Ihrough additional  taxation powers except as a result of the city's  share of thc revenue to he derived from llie sale  of liquor. Thc. delegation asked a share in taxes  levied by thc Province, such as a given to municipalities in every province of thc Dominion except B. C.: substantial share of the personal properly tax; fciir share of lhe provincial income  lax; half lhc proceeds from the.mol'or tax; half  Ihe proceeds from the amusement tax.  One of the niost important matters which has  received consideration by the United Farmers of  B. C, and upon which President Copcland has  becn \yorking a long time, is the establishment  of independent public stock yards at the Coast.  During lhc recent convention at Vancouvei  prominent members of lhc United Farmers met  in consultation with a number of the most influential stockbreeders of the Province to discuss  .tliis_.qucstion._,Jt_3yas .explained.by.-Mr_-_SJracJja.n,_  who presided at the meeting, that Mr. "VV. J.  Elliott, general manager of thc Alberla Farmers'  Live Stock Co-operative Company, of Calgary,  had been gathering information for their use.  Some of Mr. Elliott's suggestions were noted:  First, lhat local organization wao the most important point of all; second, that stock yards  should be located at the mosl important point of  all: and, third, that independent breeders would  bo protected.It was further-pointed out by Mr.  FJJllicl'l that one of tha things thestock-"'breeders  must face is the fact that the proposition-for independent stock yards is not likely to bo a paying one at first. He suggested that the United  Grain Growers -might open an office in British  Columbia, and establish branch stock yards on  the Coasl. He pointed out that many breeders  did not know when their callle are finished, and  said that stockcrs and feeders should be held up  at Kamloops or some other central point-and  sold to cattlemen who could feed them for the  market before forwarding Ihem to the stock  yards. He strongly advised dividing the country  into districts and feeding thc market carefully,  otherwise a heavy run of cattle might result in  Ihe large packers being put in a position to  "pinch" the producer.  I have often been ashed to define the true secret of success. It is thrift  m ail-its phases, thrift as applied to saving. A young man may have many  friends, but he will find none so steadfast, so constant, so ready to respond  to..Jhis. wants,**so capable of pushing him ahead, as a little leather-covered  book, with the name of a bank on its cover. Saving is the first great principle  of all success. It creates independence, it gives a young man standing, it  fills him with vigor, it stimulates him with the proper energy; in fact, it  brings to him the best part of any success���������������������������happiness and contentment. If  it were possible to inject the quality of saving into every boy, we would have  a great many more real men.���������������������������Sir Thomas Lipton.  ESTABLISHED 1872.

Coltart, as chairman of  the Finance Commitee, brought up the  question of financing ��������������������������� the proposed  street and sidewalk construction to  be undertaken this spring.  After referring to the report submitted by Mayor,Barnes on the proposed work, Aid. Coltart said in his  memorandum: "The time having  'arrived for .the' striking of the tax  rate for the current year, it is neces������������������  sary to decide which of these alternative methods of financing shall be  adopted.  "Assuming, in order to have a basis  of comparison, that it is decided to  raise for this purpose the sum of ten  thousand dollars, we find that to do  so by direct taxation In one year  would involve an addition to the tax  levy of, approximately 18 mills on the  dollar, while if raised by sale of de*  bentuers and repayments spread over  a term of 20 years i? would require an  addition of a little less than 2 mills.  "In the opinion of the undersigned,  there can be "no question as to the  proper course to be taken. It is contrary to all the canons of municipal  finance to pay for permanent improvement out of revenue.  "There is no reason why the prop*  erty owners of today should bear the  entire- cost of work which will be  equally beneficial to those of years to  corae,r and it is only reasonable and  equitable that the cost should be  spread- over a number of years.  "As regards the consent of the  Government   to   the   issue   of  deben  tures there can be no doubt, In view  of existing conditions and the urgent  need of immediate action to remedy  them, that this will be readily given.  It would be useless, however, to approach the Government until lt has  been ascertained whether the property owners desire to proceed with  the proposal.  "I recommend (1) that, to bring the  matter   to   a   decision,   the   property  owners  resident locally be called  by  personal invitation to attend a meeting with the Mayor and Aldermen at  the  earliest  possible  date,; and* that  the whole question be discussed with  them   and   an   expression   of  opinion  thereon'  obtained;    (2)   that, .in   the  event  of it  being  finally decided, to  issue debentures for the financing.of  the  proposed   work,  such 'debentures  be sold locally In large' or small denominations as may be desired.by the  purchasers, thus keeping the';.interest  in our own district rather than:-sending it away to distant points, as' would  be  the  case" if  the ���������������������������; debentures".-were  placed on the. general market; arid (3)  that if this recommendation be adop  ted, the sale of the said debentures be  placed in the hands of a suitable canvasser and the town and district canvassed  as  was  done  during the  late  Victory Loan campaigns."
