 '.,    N  4^  UlA:  ���������������������������v  _>_���������������������������������������������  V -  Jtttttfui  ^  IN WHICH IS MERGED THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY.  Vol. 14, No. 8, Whole No. 083  THURSDAY, MAY 5,1921  Subscription, $3  BIG  POWDER   USAGE  United   Farmers   Handle   First   Shipment    Right    Off    the    Car  .and  Another   Now   on    the   Way  The first 100 boxes of the 400 ordered by Enderby Local U. F. B. C.  was received last week, and in a day  or two the entire shipment was disposed of right off the^ car. This  powder sold to the settler for $9.25 a  case. But the Provincial Government has a very good plan for refunding part of this cost. After the  settler has used the powder, he fills  out.a form furnished with each case  stipulating where and how the pow-  . der was used and with what results.  and this form is returned to the prosper-department and a refund of $2.50  per case comes back to the settler. *  Under this arrangement hundreds  of settlers are clearing land who have  not felt able to do so under the conditions which have heretofore obtained. It is somewhat' pathetic to  see the eagerness and joy of those Bo  hem ian settlers who have settled in  Trinity Valley. They are the finest  bunch of settlers in the district as  land clearers and paying citizens.  The. refund of $2.50 per case has  made it possible for them to visualize  those acres Qf stumps cleared, and  into crop. Like a miner who has  struck pay dirt and works feverishly  toward tho shoot of clean ore, they  are prepared, to put their last dollar  into powder and laugtiras they see "it  go up in powder smoke.���������������������������for they  are .sending, the stumps, "with .it.  One of the older menf<of the Bohemian settlement wasl-nuying at the  car: His money was out'hefOTe"hiffl,-  ��������������������������������������������������������������������������������� "You "sell me seven botffj^Xu right."  And he counted out $65. He looked  again a_t���������������������������his_ hand as__he. spread -the  bank bills out before <hih_.  "You sell me one more box? All-  right, I see."   " ' ���������������������������  He counts the money. once more  and studies,- then peels off another  $9.25, and proceeds to roll up the wad-  As he was about to put it away he  turns back-Jo the powder and unrolls  the wad and again looks it over.  "You sell me one more box? All-  right, -I see."  He counts again and .does some  mental arithmeMc, muttering to-himself, "Sugar; I get some sugar? No,  next time J get sugar."  . - Peeling off the price of another box  he orders the ninth put Jnto the wagon box. - .  . ThisN is only one of many instances  of a similar character that might be  recited. Two wagon-loads of powder  v>ere sold  to the  Bohemian settlers.  and as they started for home, Louie  WeijerJ who was driving one of the  teams, r casually remarked, as he  pulled on-the lines: "Look like Trinity Valley ketchell dis time some."  Ilrls not only the Bohemian settlers  who are using powder. Driving in  any direction from Enderby one can  see blown stumps in patches and in  acres.' In the vicinity of Grindrod  and Mara newly-cleared fields are to  be seen in at directions and new  homes are in the making.'  The demand for powder .under the  Government's refunding order has  been so great only part of tho order  put in by tho United Farmers can be  filled at a time. The second shipment  coining to Enderby Local is expected  to arrive next week. Much of it is  already spoken for.  Where Some Pep is Needed  "I hope you will all have a good  year in the Northern Okanagan,"  writes Gerald Neve from Berkeley,  Calif. "You are living in a Land of  Promise. If ~ the Canadian Government would only use a little pep in  liberating that Indian land around  Enderby it would sure boom that district."

Mrs. Johnson came in on Monday's  train from Salmon Arm on a visit to  her father, Mr. Koski.  Sandy- Weir took a motor run down  to Kelowna on Sunday. Along with  him was his uncle, Sandy McCrae, on  a visit to the latter's brother-in-law,  Mat. Weir. As this was the first time  either had been there they enjoyed  the" trip very much and arrived home  about dusk.  Many of the young friends of Algy  Massey where at the train on Monday  to bid adieu to her as she has accepted a position at Summerland for thc  summer, but she promises to be back  as usual in the fall. Algy, as we all  know her, is always to the fore- in anything that is for the good and the social life of the place, and" we shall  greatly miss her at these affairs, but  look forward to her-return.    -  Mr. Elliott of Kelowna motored-  down to Mara on Sunday and before  he left by train on Monday for home  had disposed of his car to the Graham  Bros., and took back with him their  fine team of horses. Mr. Elliott who  is an old time resident in the Okanagan, admitted this was his first visit  to Mara by road, and was indeed  surprised to see such a fine block  of land and the ��������������������������� prospectr for  mixed farming ahd dairying and  promised to '_ make an extended  visit especially to some who he had  known for ever 20'years. .  ��������������������������� The- usual, monthly meeting of the  Mara,local U.

NEW TEl-ePHONe PIRECTOBY  Another issue of the Okanagan Telephone Directory will leave the prlnt-  ery���������������������������of-the���������������������������Walker���������������������������Press .this-week.  These issues' are made every six  months. They show the increase in  business and residential phones in the  Valley, and no better barometer show  ing the growth and development of  the Valley could be had.r The present  issue numbers 3300 copies, an increase of 300 since the issue of six  months ago. The percentage of increase Is about the same throughout  the Valley, showing growth in population In every locality to have been  well maintained.  Phone service Is continuous in  Vernon, Kelowna and Penticton. In  the other towns of the Valley an  emergency service is in vogue after  10 o'clock at night. Attention should  be drawn to what constitutes an  emergency service���������������������������sickness, fire, accident, robbery���������������������������these warrant an  emergency call. Night calls on unimportant business, early-morning fishing, hunting and pleasure trip calls  are not conducive to good service or  good spirits on the part of the resident  operator at an emergency exchange,  and are to be cut out.  An orchard survey recently made  by the Horticultural Branch of the  Provincial Department of Agriculture  gives the total area of land under cultivation at 19,991 acres. Of this  amount 12,915 acres are situated in  the North Okanagan territory, while  the balance, 7,076 acres, Is situated in  , "Some people are born with a lot'of  nerve," writes a Grindrod subscriber.  "One of' them'fenced his property _ In  this district to 'prevent other people's  stock pasturing thereon, then, later,  brought some 50 head,thirty miles into the district and turned them loose  to. pasture on other people's property,  which, in common parlance, is 'going  some.' "  Enderby baseball girls, playing at  Armstrong Saturday afternoon, with  a tennis ball" and baseball bat, walloped the girls of the sister town by a  score of 82 to 2. Following the game,  they were entertained hy the Arhi-  strong-=-team-=-and=returned=home_yery=  well pleased with themselves���������������������������and  the world.  Many Enderbyites motored to Grindrod Sunday afternoon to see a practice game of baseball between Enderby and Grindrod teams. The people of Grindrod have cleared up a  fairly good diamond near the church  and the game was well worth the trip,  resulting in favor of the Enderby boys  by a score of 9-2.  Dr. J. A. Robertson left on Monday  en route to Glasgow, Scotland. It is  Dr. Robertson's intention to return to  Enderby at some future date, where  he has many friends who.havc appreciated the work done by him in the  few months h.e has been pastor of St.  George's church. His sincerity and  uniform kindness to all won theo respect and esteem of everybody.  Eight small window' panes were  broken in the Jap boarding house on  Saturday night, and for a short time  there was commotion enough to hatch  all kinds of rumors and false stories.  Constable Bailey and Mayor Barnes  were notified at 12 o'clock, though nobody seems to know just at what  hour the alleged attack took place.  Tihe peculiar feature noticed at once  by Constable Bailey on going to the  house was that the broken glass was  on the porch and not inside the room,  and, too, that the windpw sash In  every case held not a remnant of  glass.  a short time.  Miss Helen Monk returned home  from Vernon this week' for a short  stay with her parents.  Mr. Jack Clarke met witlv, rather a  nasty accident last week when a stick  flew and ;hit him in the eye. Luckily  the sight wasn't affected anti now he  is none the worse for wear.

To ber indomitable spirit  and perseverance, is due much of the  success of the institution, and today,  as she looks over the wards and interior finishings of the hospital and  mentally draws, a comparison with  conditions as she found them when  the institution was taken over by her,  she must feel justly proud to have had  a hand iri shaping and making effective the policy that has worked out so  well for all concerned.

It was an exceptionally well-attended feeting. and  there was an enthusiasm something  similar to the sport meetings of years  ago, when the boys played the game  for the sport of.it and were prepared  to pay for their good-time.  After brief discussion it was- resolved to organize the Enderpy Lacrosse Club, and the following officers  were elected: President.N. A. Koury;  P. Worley, secretary; Geo. Jones,  captain of the team.  To raise funds for the purchase of  sticks, gloves, net, balls, etc., it was  decided to hold a dance on Friday,  May 13th, and a committee composed  of Messrs. Worley, Jones, Blackburn  and Mack, was appointed to make all  arrangements for the dance.  British. Columbia now has 5,000  goats within her boundaries, with an  estimated value of $200,000. The production of milk for 1920 is estimated  at 75,000 gallons, which at' 15c a quart  is valued at $45,000. If to this sum  is added the value of the 1920 crop  of kids, which is about $25,000 more,  the value of the goat industry in this  province during the year 1920 is placed at $70,000. Three years ago the  estimated number of goats in the province was-one thousand.  funds to be divided between   the Enderby and-Salmon Arm.hospitals.  SEED YIEI-QS  IN  MANGEU8.  During the last few years many of  the Dominion Experimental Farms,  particularily in the East and in British  Columbia,   have     been   engaged  ;<5"-  in mangel ; eed growing on qui te an  extensive scp'e and many observations have i.-f-en made as to under  what conditions the heaviest seed  crop may be expected.  It goes without saying that the  first ��������������������������� con'iMon for profitable see.i  crops is the use of vigorous and perfectly sound roots. Their size is of  minor importance, which is evident  by the fact that, where mangel seed *"'  is produced extensively for the trade,  small roots one to two inches in diameter are generally preferred to larger ones.  Of great importance then is early  plantlng of the seed roots. The earlier the roots are planted out in the  spring, the larger seed crops may be  realized. Several years' observations  have convinced us that the seed  roots should be planted out as soon  as the ground can be worked, even if  it should be somewhat cool. In fact,  planting in cool, damp soil often  seems to be preferable to planting in  warm soil, particularly if the roots  have been stored in a cellar during  the winter and have come through ���������������������������  somewhat lacking in crispness. They  will, if planted early, have a most beneficial chance of regaining their crisp.  ness and therewith their full vigor before they begin to throw out seed  stalks in earnest.  We are judged only by what we are  not. OKANAGAN   COMMONER  THURSDAY, MAY 5, 1921  #feanagau Commoner  In which is merged The Enderby Press and Walker's Weekly  Published  every Thursday at Enderby.

It   is Jhe   result  of the first important dispute between'the .newspapers and  thc International Typographical Union, the working printers demanding an increase  in wages from $39 to $-10.50 per week and at the  same time a reduction in the working time from  48 lo -i-l hours a week, and Uic newspaper proprietors   refusing  lo  grant bolh   these advances.  Thc  employers  clid   concede  the  increase   in  wages lo $-10.50 per week, bul refused to give  reduction  of.four hours in  Ihe week's work"-"?1  time.       Hence   the  walk-out.      Thc position  lhe newspapers is concisely given by the Kelowna  Courier in these words:  "The change from   lhc former rate of $39.00  for 4$ hours' work to $40.50 I'or 44 Irours would  involve an addition of over 13 per cent to labor  cost, taking no cognisance of lhe fact lhat Ih.c. unproductive lime will remain  the same,-as before  and that  the four hours .must come off the productive time, that is the proportion 'of unproductive   to   productive   lime.       Thc  employers   cannol absorb lhis addition lo lhcir cosls, and there  is no opportunity  to "pass thc buck" on   lo  thc  public, who arc not in mood Ihcse days Lo stand  for increase in prices in any line.      Subscription  rates are high as thcy can go, lhc same applies to-  advertising,   and   Eastern   competion,   aided  by  a lowfcr wage scale and the employment of boys  an'd girls on  bindery and  press work,  which  is  done here by journeyman, is an effective bar.,to  io an increase in prices   i'or commercial printing?  . "The members  of  the Okanagan  Press  Guild  have therefore decided  to resist thc demand for  a   44-hour   week   and  until, somc  settlement' is  reached   the  "    "Vernon" News  Review,'"     Penticton    Herold"  Courier" will cease publication.    Thc Armslrong  and   Enderby  papers   arc  operated   by  Sir Philip Gibbs, in a special cable to thc Vancouver Province, after reciting the tragic industrial condition oi' England today, refers in these  words lo the cause not only of industrial unrest  there but throughout Europe: "Apart from  the  minority   of  advanced   democrats   who  shudder  at    the    thought   of   further   military    burdens,  French public opinion has seemed lo be solid in  puhlic expression  if not in private conversation  for holding Germany by thc throat, shaking out  her poekels, ������������������eizingcall she can gel now and then  kicking hcr. further into Ihc mire of ruin.    This  is evidenced by their desire lo bold lhe Ruhr Valley to ransome by armed occupation and lake lhc  German gold reserves. Moderate opinion in England, as far as I can gauge, apart from newspaper  sentiments, which adopt the old irreconciliability  lo any German proposition, is inclined lo believe  lhal  Ihe occupation  of industrial   towns  cannot  produce   good   results, and   can   load   lo  grave  trouble.    Thc economic ruin of Germany would  nol help  the British or American export  trade,  nor in   Ihc long run   lhat oi" any of  lhe Allies,  though justice mii.sl  bc done without sentiment  or softening.    Il is essential that thc. final agreement must be lived up lo, that Germany shall bc  dealt with sternly and in a way satisfactory to the  interests of France, which is desperately in need,  though never lo bc wholly satisfied. Thc Gcrman  people must, in the interests of all, have a fair  lo attain  tbe industrial  prosperity  upon  which  liie surrounding countries depend in   liie  long run for their own hcallh and well-being. It  is such a formula that Premier Lloyd George has  been   seeking.     It   is   an  indisputable   facl,   and  France must learn.it, that ploughmen in French  fields arc more valuable and less costly than soldiers in occupied towns."

Journeying hither and thither and rubbing shoulders with all classes in  many communities during recent weeks has convinced mc oft.his one thing:  Merchants and manufacturers of the country have largely forfeited the goodwill of the public. Very widespread is .the feeling that profiteering was  indulged in shamefully. The people feel that they were not given a fair deal.  Thoy believe that they,had to pay ininuitously extortionate prices for almost  everything they had to buy. -They are particularly bitter, I. would say,  against the "sugar robbers", the sho'o manufacturers and retailers, against  ihc butchers, against bakers, against the clothing trade in general, and even  more especially against the coal people.

J. S. Dennis,  of the Canadian  Pacific Railway.  Called as a wit*  jiess to the history of the Cana������������������  dian West, Col.  Pennis���������������������������who perhaps, has a wider  and more personal knowledge  of its growth and  development than  any   other   man.  Described   gra>'  p h i c a 11 y,    the  changes that have  r  //  COLONEL J. 8  taken place in that great .Western  territory _ fro_n_ the time when - a  "young-raanT^in- 1872^h������������������~first~werit  West in the employ of the Department of the Interior until the present day ��������������������������� its early settlement and  struggles, the method of land survey, first transportation lines, its  agricultural beginnings, commercial  extensions, mineral resources, etc.���������������������������  showing by tabulated statements  aud maps, the steady increase that  has resulted during the period under discussion, and under cross examination, giving his opinion r*. the  future that lies before it.  Col. .Dennis then went on to tell  of the development of the West. Jfte  gave figures showing the increase  fn population for various periods;  the growth of bank clearings at principal points; thc increase in elevator  capacity; the total land acreage and  the acreage under 'cultivation; the  jand tributary to existing railway  lines available for settlement; the  suitability of land for settlement;  the growth of the railways; a description of the Peace River country; the amount of grain produced;  the value of a settler to the railroads and the country; irrigation development and extension; mineral  output and the prospect of the Al-  fcerta oil fields.  Before cross examination by the  Government counsel, and after a  brief description of the proposed  work of the Western Canada Colonization Company, the witness was  asked to give his opinion of the outlook for future development of  Western Canada.  "Very briefly, then," said Coi.  Dennis, "my opinion with regard to  the development of the Western  Prairie Provinces is conditioned on  one fact only; We have, as I have  shown, at the present time, thirty-  two million acres of land being cultivated   and   made   productive.     We  that lerve that present productive  area, an area equally large that \f  absolutely^unproductivef=^K^in=the=  near, future we can make this two  or three million acres of land that  He within fifteen miles of existing  railway, productive of settlement, it  is a fair estimate that it will more  than double the productiveness of  the country, because, if the thirty-  two million acres that we now have  under cultivation produce the traffic we have at present, the colonization of the additional thirty-three  million acres will produce _,a great  deal more than a similar amount."  "Now," he continued, "whether wo  can colonize it or not depends upon  the government. If the government  ���������������������������in view of the present railway  situation, ��������������������������� are going to impose  restrictions with regard to colonization, of course that means a  lengthened time within which development can be carried out. Assuming, as is suggested, lhat we  have the door open to the character  of colonization which brought about  the settlement of the thirty-two million acres and the development of  that country from what it was"  forty-nine years ago to what it is  to day, which resulted wholly snd  solely from the settlement of the  country ��������������������������� there was not anythi .%  else which brought about this development -a- my opinion is that a  very rapid development can bt? produced within the next few yenrs.  and the future of-the Grand Trunk  Pacific absolutely depends upon it."  "To sum up I will say that if all  interests take hold of the matter intelligently and agressively aiv! t'ie  Government will consider the in-  interests of the National .RaHarrys  and not bar the door, -it is my opinion we should have a very marked  movement of people to Western Canada, in fact,- I will be dis'ioroin--H  if our immigration  does  not  double  A  have adjacent to the  railway  lines I within the next five years."  anking Service for All  A S thc majority of the first  ** directorate of the Bank of  Montreal, formed in 1817, were  Scotchmen or bore Scotch names  it was but natural that they should  seek in Canada "to extend and to  perpetuate' for the farmer, and the  merchant the benefits and stimulus .  of a system the worth of-which  Scotland's prosperity could abund-*  antiy prove." One of the .outstanding features of ' the system  was the maintenance of numerous  branches by banks of large capital.  ,XheBankof Montreal, in adopting  this feature from the outset, laid  the foundations of a service by  which branches have been established throughout the entire  Dominion.  At each of these branches the full  service of the complete organization  is available.  Through this service the Bank of  Montreal offers to all classes of the  community, from the smallest savings depositor to the largest commercial organization, good ahd adequate banking facilities. Each  customer whether his account be  large or small is welcome as a  client of the institution.

Dr. Bowlby, secretary of the Alliance, in an interview in. the Philadelphia Public Ledger some weeks ago,  said of Uie big work to be undertaken:  "We are well financed. Our lobby  at Washington will be an effective  and experienced one. We shall work  in every congressional district in  every state. We shall agitate and  spread propaganda, and cause .voters  to write increasingly to their representatives in Congress until no con  gressman who cares to stay in Con  gross .will dare refuse to vote for our  measures. These were the methods  used by the Anti-Saloon League, and  they were effective.  "We propose to pass no blue laws.  There are no such things as blue laws  ���������������������������never were. And we don't propose  to legislate people into church. We  propose, by legislation to make it  easier for people..to go to church. In  other words, we shall try to close the  baseball parks, the golf links, the  motion picture and other theaters, the  concert halls, the amusement parks,  the bathing beaches, and so on. We  shall fight all amusements where an  admission fee is charged. We shall  oppose golf, tennis, baseball, football,  and other sports, even if purely ama  teur and void of financial cost to those  watching or taking part, because they  set bad examples for children . who  otherwise might be content to go to  Sunday   school.  "We shall seek to restrict the sale  of gasoline for pleasure automobiles,  and urge other features that will stop  Sunday automobiling and joy riding.  This will not bring the old-fashioned  horse and buggy back, because we believe that the Lord's day should be. a  day of rest for man ,and beast.
