Vol. 13, No. 45, Whole No. 695  THURSDAY, JANUARY 27, 1920  Subscription, $!3 a year  Indian Reserve Question Again  | Up for Discussion at Public Meeting  The public meeting held in U. F.  . I rail Tuesday evening to place before  Mr. J. A. MacKelvie the .issues which  are of most importance to the district and whic"' must be .solved by  and through the Dominion Government, was . well attended, and the  meeting resulted in the. clearing of  2 the air and a thorough understanding  by Mr. MacKelvie of what steps have  been taken by the citizens of Enderby  in past years in their efforts to bring  about action by the Government so  as to have the reserve land opened to  white settlers by purchase from the  Indians."'  The question of water powcr at the  Skookum s Chuck was also discussed,  and there was placed in Mr. MacKel-  vie's hands particulars relating, to  the logged-off t mber berth0lying between Grindrod and Mara, which it is  hoped will be thrown open to settlers  and made of service in the further  development of the district.  It. was explained at the outset that  full details relating to the reserve  and its occupants had already been  placed before the Indian Commission  which visited Enderby in 1913, and,  as' the facts then set forth -were as  'true of conditions on the reserve now  as "they were then; later developments, if anything, making the showing wnr������������������e than when the commission  sat here, the report then made is  again presented.

"Tn safeguard the Indians and the  community, we would urge the Government to investigate the actual  conditions on the reserve. We would  recommend, further, that should the  Government find it possible to satisfy  the Indians and purchase from them  the Enderby portion of tho Spallumcheen reserve, that said land be held  for sale only to bona fide settlers, and  not to any company of promoters or  corporation whatsoever, and to be  sold in small (holdings only, at a price  set by tho Government."  Reserve Land Values  There was also placed before the  meeting a copy of the report made  on June 16, 1919* by Mr. F. Hassard,  lo Mr. DmE. Paterson, assistant director of lands. In this report, Mr. Hassard stated that on June 10th, 11th  and 12th he cruised the lands of the  Spallumcheen reserve No. 2, in company with Mr. A. Megraw, Inspector  of Indian agencies, and made a classification aiid valuation of the land,  as well as noting ways and means of  but fom ihegiv efqswelli erlysee W  sub-dividing it to the best advantage.  "In going over the ground and comparing the land with that of cleared  farms in the Vicinity," the report  stated, "we found that much of It is  better than we expected to find, and  a corresponding correction in the  values to be allotted had to be inade.  The attention of Mr. MacKelvie  was directed to the oft repeated efforts that, have beenjnade to get the  water power going to waste at Skookum Chuck, Spallumcheen river, developed for ' hydro-electric purposes.  Af tliis point on the river .tfiere is an  available water power going to watse  capable of developing 10,000" horsepower, which is sufficient to run an  electric power plant sufficiently large  to supply every town in the Okanagan  with juice for lighting and power  purposes. It was hoped that Mr.  MacKelvie would lend his efforts in  the direction of having this Spallumcheen water power made use of, ancl  that if the_ present^_seop8_of_ the Con-  servation department would not go  any farther than make hydrographic  surveys, then was it not time for the  scope of the service to be enlarged to  permit of the development by the  Dominion and the practical application of these immense sources of hydro-electric power for the good of  the Dominion..as a whole?  Mr. MacKelvie, in explaining his  well-known policy of dealing with  these matters, said he considered lt a  duty as well as a pleasure to meet In  a round-table talk with tho people of  Enderby district.

A fine bunch of sports are  those Salmon Arm boys.  Enderby's junior lacrosse team  seems, to be the only team that can  bring home tlie bacon. They drove  to Armstrong last Saturday afternoon  and played the youngsters of the  neighboring towij, winning bva score  of 4-0. They were' royally entertained  by their defeated foe after the game,  being taken to the Brill I-Iall' and  there liberally .feu on doughnut pucks  ancl coffee. v  Rev. Br.

It was a faster game throughout,  than that played against Armstrong  the week before, and the home team  showed up better, both in combination and work on goal. To one on  the fence, it looked like Enderby's  game up to the last ^period. It was  just the different attitude of the  teams when they went on the ice in  this period that won the game for the  visitors and lost it to the home team.  Salmon Arm's Fast Team .  ���������������������������   The  result," cf thc  game  played  on  Enderby ice Monday evening against  Salmon Arm was another surprise for.  Enderby hockey fans.    Everybody but  the   players   themselves   thought   the  home  team  would  have a walk-over.  Some   of   our   players   knew   better.  They   had   played   the   Salmon   Arm  team   and   knew   them' to -be. hardy  players,  young,  fast,  aggressive;  and  felt .sure'they'd  put up a game that .  would' make the Enderby teain work.

En: -  lerby's defense was weakene.d a,t, thc  outset,  and  went ; quite  to  pieces   in" -  the' last period when Pat Morley went'  off the ice too ill to finish the game.  Recognizing this, it must, at the same  time be  admitted  that  those  Salmon  Arm boys did show pep at every stage  of the game. -They forced-the playing "  from the start, and seemed most;for--,  tunate in having in their spares boys .  who were as good as'the men they re- .  placed-for-a breathing.spell.  .'

Today an ^opportunity  is being given to it to lead the way  in dealing with uiieniployment on a  more rational basis.  "What is it that every single province of Canada wants at- the present  time? Is it not a rational theory of  labor? A rational conception of unemployment? And a rational method  of dealing with it-in the interest of  the individual, ancl for thc publiic  benefit?  "Labor has value. Does it cease to  have value when it is organized by  representative bodies instead .of by  ordinary employers of labor?.  "What is unemployment? Is it not  simply a condition lhat has been  brought about by a failure on the  part of the employers to maintain  the organization of labor.  "Is not the true method of dealing  with unemployment, simply, to organize labor along lines of production  and   to   dispose  of    the    produce   for  CURIOUS   TREES.  The Butter Tree.

MacKelvie the .issues which  are  of  most   importance   to   the   district   ancl   whic"'   must  be   solved   by  and   through   the   Dominion   Government,   was . well   attended,   and   the  meeting   resulted   in   the   clearing  of  the air and a thorough understanding  by Mr. MacKelvie of what steps have  been taken by the citizens of Enderby  hi past years in their efforts to bring  about   action   by  the  Government   so  as to have the reserve land opened to  "white  settlers  by  purchase  from  the  Indians.  The question of water power at the  .'   Skookum, Chuck  was  also  discussed,  and there was placed in Mr. MacKel-  vie's   .hands    particulars   relating   to  c  the  logged-off t mber berth  lying between Grindrod and Mara, which it is  hoped Avill be thrown open to settlers  and   made  of  service  In  the   further  development of the district.  It. was explained at the outset that  full details- relating to the reserve  .and "its occupants had already been  placed before the Indian Commission  which visited Enderby in 1913, and,  as the facts then set^ forth -were as  true of conditions on the reserve now  as they were then; later developments, if anything, making the showing wnr������������������:e than when thc commission  sat here, the .report then made is  again presented. In this report,  then made in"the form of an affidavit,  and signed by J. L. Ruttan, P..Hassard, H. IT. Worthington, F. H.  Barnes, Graham Rosoman and H.

"To safeguard the Indians and the  community, we would urge the Government to Investigate the actual  conditions on the reserve. We would  recommend,   further,  that  should  the  o Government find it possible to satisfy  Ihe Indians and niirr.li.iso from them  the Enderby portion  of tho  Spnllum-  ��������������������������� cheen reserve, that said land be held  ' for sale only to bona fide settlers, ancl  not to any company of promoters or  corporation whatsoever, and to be  sold in small iholdings only, at a price  set by tho Government."  Reserve Land Values  There was also placed before the  meeting a copy of the report made  on June 16, 1919* by Mr. F. Hassard,  lo Mr. BbbJS. Paterson, assistant director of lands. In this report, Mr. Hassard stated that on June 10th, 11th  and 12th he cruised the lands of the  Spallumcheen reserve No. 2, in company with Mr. A. Megraw, Inspector  of Indian agencies, and made a classification and valuation of the land,  ' as well as noting ways and means of  but fom ihegiv efqswelli erlysee W  sub-dividing it to the best advantage.  "In going over the ground and comparing the land with that of cleared  farms in the Wcinity," the report  stated, "we found that much of it is  better than we expected to find, and  a corresponding correction in the  values to be allotted had to be made,  .      - ,     $52,835.00  Six hundred and twenty acres still  to.be valued.

Skookum Chuck power. -  The attention of Mr. MacKelvie  was directed to the oft repeated efforts that, have been^made to get the  water power going to waste at Skoo.-  kum Chuck, Spallumcheen river, developed for ' hydro-electric purposes.  At this point on the river ^here is an  available water power going to watse  capable of developing 10,000" horsepower, which is sufficient to run an  electric power plant sufficiently large  to supply every town i:i the Okanagan  with juice for lighting and power  purposes. It was hoped that Mr.  MacKelvie would lend his efforts in  the direction of having this Spallum-  .ch6cn water power made use of, and  that, if_the_present, scope_of the Con:  servation department would not go  any farther than make hydrographic  surveys, then was it- not time for the  scope of the service to be enlarged to  permit of the development by the  Dominion and the practical application of these immense sources of hydro-electric power for the good of  the Dominioiv-as a whole?  Mr. MacKelvie, in explaining his  well-known policy of dealing with  these matters, said he considered It a  duty as well as a pleasure to meet In  a round-table lalk with tho people of  Enclerby district. He understood in  a general way the earnest efforts that  had  Alex Bilsland is confined to the Enderby hospital, quite seriously ill.

'      -  Salmon Arm hockey fans were on  hand by the autoload to see.Monday  night's game, and they did not miss  any of it. a fine bunch of sports are  those Salmon Arm boys.  Enderby's junior lacrosse team  seems to be the only team that can  bring home tlie bacon. They drove  to Armstrong last Saturday afternoon  and played the youngsters of the  neighboring town, winning bv a score  of 4 0. They were'royally entertained  by their defeated foe after the game,  being taken to thc Drill Hall* and  there liberally feu on doughnut pucks  and coffee.  Rev. Br. "Robertson, who undertook the- work of the Enderby-Grind-  rod-Mara parish on c the resignation  oMhe-dlev���������������������������-Mr.---Gretlon^a^few-=-months-  ago, announced in St.George's church  on Sunday evening, that he hw found  the work too heavy for him, ���������������������������nd .the  distances too great for one of his  years, ancl announced that he would  retire as soon as a younger man was  available to take up the work.  ��������������������������� The league hockey game between  Vernon and Enclerby last Thursday  night on Enclerby ice resulted in another defeat for the home team. But  it was as fine a game of hockey as  anyone could wish to see, and the  large crowd that witnessed the game  went home thoroughly satisfied. It  was the opinion of all that if the local  boys do not succeed - in' scoring as  many as the winners, they have little  to complain of if they.can put up as  good a game as that against Vernon.  Tihe teams were . evenly matched, in  all, seemingly, but the forwards.  Here the visitors were the stronger.  We had no one that was a match for  Louie Norris. . Hc 'was swift .on ins  feet, quick to shoot and sure of his  shots. In the last; period Enderby's  defense and Fulmer, in goal, were not  given a ' moment's; breathing - spell.  Shot- after shot was stopped by.Ful-  mer and shot back into play, but it  came back almost: as quickly as it  went away. Onl3r once or twice did  the home boys succeed in carrying ,it  anywhere near the J Vernon goal, and  then never close enough for a shot.  It was in this period, that Vernon  won. Coming on the ice in the last  period with a lead 'of one, the,home  team   appeared   to   be   over-confident.  prepared to play  the   last  twenty  They seemed to be  a defense gaine in  minutes. The visitors-took the offensive at the drop of the puck, and did  not' stop. One goal made the score  3-3. They set the pace faster. .The  wing playing was now superb oiuboth  sides, with the advantage to'Vernon  in" Louie Norris, <whp had a penchant  for carrying the-pucjk-away from"the  Enderby' goal - until    there   was   an  opening   for   a-  turning, shcotli:_  .hcjt,    then,���������������������������'.wiih^ut-  back-handed for the  Enderby net. It worked. Another  goal made the score 4-3 against Enderby.  It was   a   faster   game   throughout,  than   that  played   against  Armstrong  ] ���������������������������*��������������������������� '.  the week before, ancl the home team  showed up better, - both in combination and work on goal. To one on  the fence, it looked like Enderby's  game up to the last period. It was  just, the different attitude of the '  teams when "they went on the ice .in  this period that won .the game for the  visitors and lost it to the home team.  Salmon Arm's Fast Team  ��������������������������� The result' of thc game played on  Enderby ice Monday evening against  Salmon Arm was another surprise for  Enderby hockey fans. Everybody but  the players themselves thought the  home team would have a walk-over.  Some' of our players knew better.  They had played the Salmon Arm  team and knew them to be, hardy  players, young, fast, aggressive; and  felt sure 'they'd put ��������������������������� up a game that  would- make the Enderby team work'  But nobody anticipated the walk-over  that, was-surely .Salmon Arm's. En-  lerby's defense was weakened -it thc-  outset, and went 'quite to pieces in .  the' last period when Pat Morley went  off the ice too ill to finish the game.  Recognizing this, it must, at the same  time, be admitted that those Salmon5  Arm-boys did show pep at every stage  of the game. They'forced the playing  from the start, and seemed most for- -  tunate in having in their spares boys .-  who were as good as the men they replaced for a breathing:spell.  In. this game the home team'"man-".  aged to squeeze the puck into the vis-.  itbr.s   net   just   once, "while   Salmon  Ann., scored   three. - The   score - tells J ���������������������������  the story .

Oriental ownership ancl competition came in  for specilic attention before the session of llie 13.  C.Fruilgrowers'Associalion convention al Nelson  last week. Several Okanagan growers spoke vigorously on thc subject when resolutions were presented. A. McLachlan of Summerland said that  during such a time of unemployment, nothing  should jjc mrown in llie way of our own citizens.  lie secured the endorsement of the convention lo  his resolution calling upon the Dominion Government to appoint a commission or take steps to  seek a solution of the Oriental question, especially  as io lhc ownership or control'of fruit'and farm  lands and lhc immigration of these people, so  Ih^it !jiov ��������������������������� should nol constitute more Ihnii 'Sv^*  per cent of the population of any province.

These claims, however, it is now asserted, have never been borne  out and the association lias been workingSto no  particular end.

The second year students at the  High School have recently been occulting their minds with the mysteries  of Insectdom. The study of insects  is known as entomology, and some  of the ordinary words encountered  during the past month have been of  monstrous dimensions ���������������������������Heteroptera.  "Pcntatomidae, and Otoirynchidac are  some of the common ones���������������������������but the  results of the test show that names  do not worry the class.  In this Province insects do a vast,  amount of damage to crops and forests annually, not to mention the  house fly and mosquito'-nuisance, so  entomology deservo:; a prominent  place  in   the   agricultural   curriculum.  The following names are in order  of merit:  Antoinette  Paradis   .. .- 100%  Mabel' Mizon     fifj  Henry   Vogel     P5  JWinifred   Large      So  JlSIla  McKay ���������������������������'. ������������������..

In   view   of  the   increasing   amount  of  business   that  is   being  carried   911  at   Swift   Current, ��������������������������� Saskatchewan,   the  j Saskatchewan   Co-operative   Creamery  j Company has decided to erect a cold  : storage  warehouse   there.    This  company' already   operates   a   large   modern creamery plant.    During the present   year   over   $200,000   was   paid   to  local farmers for cream.  As a result of the discovery of  Marquis wheat by Dr. Saunders, 26,-  000,000 bushels of this wheat were  grown in the United States and Can-  ada, .which would not have been  grown if the discovery had not been  made. At an average price of $2.00  per bushel, it means that the wealth  of the two countries is increased by  j $52,000,000 in that one year.
