No. 9, Whole No. 684  THURSDAY, MAY 12, 1921  Subscription, $!3  Polly of Building Restrictions  if Fire Hazards ar e Permitted  At Monday night's meeting of the  City Council two applications were  read relating to the desirability ol  modifying the- restrictions imposed  -by the building by-law within the fire  limit of' Enderby, and a committee  was appointed "to look into the whole  question involved. Wm. H. Hutclii-  son asked permission to eioct a shop  to be used for blacksmith ing, near  the conor of Cliff on Belvedere, and  S. H. Speers asked that the JBuilding  By-law be amended to permit him to  erect a frame store building on the  corner of Cliff and Belvedere.  In    this    connection   it   would   no  r  doubt be interesting to-" read the  Mainland "Fire Underwriters' association's report on the structural conditions and hassards existing in Enderby:  "Building Department ��������������������������� Organization���������������������������Chairman of Board of Works or  policeman acts as building inspector.  " No building may be erected, enlarged,  -altered or removed without permltl  It jte the duty of the"inspector to* examine all-buildings in course of construction, alteration, or repair.  "Bylaw���������������������������The    fire    limits    are    as  shown   on   Goad's   map   and   include  "practically all  of. the  mercantile  district, except a few store on Cliff St.,  west of George.    New buildings  facing on. Cliff St. In fire limits must be  of brick,  stone or .concrete,. or wood  . protected by metal, with roofs of incombustible   material;   no  blacksmith  'shop.onor livery  barn  shall  be, erec-  -ted,   and. no-factory   allowed   unless  ^{approved  by_ inspector.    Inflammable  roofs are not prohibited on any,, class  of   building   outside  _of *" fire   limits.-  Stove  pipe  chimneys   prohibited, ���������������������������biifc  "^Dricft.rconcreto,*1-- stone- or - terra"\cotta  chimneys   are ' permitted   onJTwooden  brackets.    No  provisio.n  is  made for  wall   thicknesses, -parapets," areas   of  building,   inside   fire   protection, . fire  escapes,'fire stops, nor for protection  to   exposed   windows,   vertical   openings and communications through fire  .  wall.    From  a  fire  prevention- standpoint structural  conditions  are.weak  and- can   only   be   remedied   by   the  adoption  and  rigid  enforcement of a  comprehensive building by-law.  "Electricity ��������������������������� Electric light and  power plant' is owned and operated by  a sawmill company. City by-law  makes reference^to outside wiring  only. There are no provisions for inspection and no inspections are made.  "Old inside work is in very defective condition and new.work is not'  ___J>eing _ installed���������������������������in__ accordance__with  National Electiic Code. Defects consist of over-loaded circuits, misuse of  electrical cord, faulty splicing-, and  alterations by owner.  "Outside feed wires tp buildings  are ln many cases loose and show  poor workmanship. Insulation on  wires poor. Condition of wiring indicates need of supervision, and enforcement of National Electric Code.  "Organization���������������������������There are no local  regulations for .handling explosives  nor inflammables, and no provision  made for inspection. Chief of .police  makes  irregular  inspection.  "Local conditions���������������������������Burning of rubbish permitted in lanes. General condition regarding combustible rubbish  in and around buildings, fair. Hardware stores' keep small quantities of  turpentine,' lubricating oil and small  fire-arm ammunition. At one store  40 to 50 gallons of gasoline in ordinary cans was found stored in a frame  slied at rear. Maintenance of garages is poor.  "Conflagration hazard���������������������������In the principal business district there are a  number J of frame buildings interspersed* with brick, very little congestion. Buildings are of low height  and small area with non-hazardous  occupancy. Moderate exposure from  lumber yard, stables and frame  shingle-rbof dwellings. Streets are of  fairly good width, Water supply deficient  for  large  fire  until  pump  at  sawmill is brought into service, ahd,  with no organized fire department,  the probable hazard is moderate. No  outside aid readily available.  "Recommendations; -.

"That a complete inspection of all  wiring be made and defects corrected.  "That a by-law for the regulations  of explosives and inflammables be  adopted, making a fire warden or the  policeman responsible for.its enforcement."  In this connection, the Provincial  inspector of fire insurance was in En-  derby_some wcsks ago, and called the  attention of the Commoner to the  fact that, while Enderby has a building by-law fairly well lived up to, yet  all the good that may come from, its  enforcement is lost by the allowance  of other practices' which , are considered more hazardous than well-  constructed frame buildings. He particularly referred to the practice of  burning rubbish In lanes and back of  store buildings within the fire limit.  This practice, the inspector said, had  more to do with making the base-rate  of insurance high in, the. fire limit  than anything else, and, would continue to be so considered by the" Underwriters' Association so long as it  is continued, regardless of any building by-law restrictions.  The annual excitement was staged  at the meeting of .the City Council on  Monday evening. As regularly as the  coming of May, it puts Hn an appearance and is enjoyed. It always hinges upon ��������������������������� the enforcement of .the  Pound By-law. This time the leading' speakers coming before the Council to speak on the question ��������������������������� were A.  D. -Birrell and Robt. Jones. Mr. Birrell pointed to what he considered  to be the injustice of the city enforcing the impounding clause of the law  against town cows found-on the street  and not against cows coming into  town from the country. Town cows,  he said, are put into pound, while  country cows roam into town in  droves and are chased out again by  the city policeman. He thought the  partial enforcement of the law was  wrong, and contended that all cows  and owners-of cows should be treated  alike. Either all cows should be impounded or none. If a cow from the  range can pasture on the city streets  without being pinched he did not see  why the city cow should have to go  to jail for the same offense.  Robt. Jones spoke his mind. He was  convinced the pound by-law was not  a good law. It was not enforced as  it should be. He "wanted ta see all  cows treated alike, and the /city tax  payer have thet.same privileges as the  country tax payer. This thing of  driving country cows out������������������f town and  putting'town cows into pound was no  man's   French   ivory   box   with   auto good. They get back into town-again  Mrs. E..

By-law No. 130, fixing a poll tax of  $5 per year for every male person  over, the age of 18 year, was given its  first reading. The-following exemptions are noted: Any"person oyer the  age of 60 whose last yearly" income  did not exceed $700; any person enrolled as amember of the active, mili--  ; tia; any person engaged in . active  naval or military service;,any person  who served overseas, or any person  who has to pay other-taxes to exceed  the sum of $5 on land, or improve;  ments.-  strop razor.

'���������������������������  A communication was read from A.  D. Birrell complaining of certain  streets having been fenced in on the  Barnes' addition to Enderby. Mayor  Barnes explained to the council that  some years ago, when he did not sell  the lots in the tract of land, he applied to the council then "sitting for  permission to close the block, and the  lots have not since been on thc mar  ket. ' *  S. II. Speers, for tho committee arranging for the celebration May 24th,  applied to the. council for an advance  of $600 for celebration purposesVthe  city to take the gate receipts to.the  amount of the advance. On motion an  advance of $500 was authorized.  The matter of booth privileges  coming up, it was5 decided that the  Athletic Association should pay the  usuar concession tax of $5 per booth,  and that the question of remitting  the amount would be dealt with in the  usual way after the celebration."  It was the opinion of the Mayor and  aldermen that they had not the authority to restrict booth privileges to  the athletic association, as the recreation ground is public property and it  is within the right of any, citizen to  get booth concessions who 'Will pay  the concession fee charged to all alike.  i_* - _  / Olympics   Put  Up  Good  Game  The Enderby school boys' basebair.  team,  the   Olympics,  put  up  a  good"  game at-Armstrong last Saturday afternoon-and won by; a score:of 10-6.,-  They didn't - have ��������������������������� a - walk-ovejiv at any  stage of the game, J but- Tiad to work"  hard for.every riin.-~   -        '"    ��������������������������� -S    V  ^Fact" ~Js,^'the --"Armstrong - boysV-had.  the   best   of it   at  the   start. ������������������"They,  scored  In" the  first, and "through: errors - by   Enderby's   infield ��������������������������� piled . up  three more runs in "the-2nd. ��������������������������� Jn {the  4th the.v added another. ���������������������������    '..,  The Olympics scored only once' up  to the" fifth inning.

The   sudden   change    in   th'e score.  ,had a depressing effect on the Armstrong'lads.     They  scored   only  one  more run in the balance of the game.

Canada's School of War  In onc of his books published a few \-cnrs ago  Jl. Ci. Wells-pictured the peoples of thc world���������������������������  and particularly of Europe���������������������������as in a nightmare ol  distrust and quarrelling���������������������������in a menial fog���������������������������as a  result of lhc Great War, in which all wci'e.scrambling for pelf ancl powcr regardIcss^ of all the  woe and suffering such a squabble brought in  ifs wake. Wh n things were al their worst.- and  it appeared that a world cataclysm could nol be  averted. Ibis writer pictured Ihe people oi' Europe  awakening froni llie nightmare and rinding  themselves locked in each other's arms in a death  struggle llie likes of which w.as never known before. And then he pictures lhe clearing of lhcir  minds and lhe realization creeping upon them  of Ihc horror of il all and its awful wastefulness.  Reason and sanity takes the place of doubt and  antagonism, fighling and jangling, greed and  gloating, and each nalion and conflicting interest  begins lo sec how closely all are related and how  necessary the success of each is fo thc welfare of  ail.

Certainly if America and Canada can no! es.^rl aa  influence for uood in lhe discussions ol" Ihe Supreme Council, lhcy cannol make mailers any  worse.  All the years that Canada and the Uniled States  havc lived side by side, there never has been a  whisper of war between ouis' peoples  nor with  any olher people.   We arc a people of peace and  hale war.    Nol until thc return of officers and  men who wcnl overseas to fight in the war lhal  was to end'all war. did wc even hear much aboul  mjlilarism.    Hut now, after the war to end war  has been'won, avc hear in ore aboul  militarism  and war preparations lhan ever before.    Officers  who   went  overseas   and   returned,  are   not  disposed lo get back into civil life-.   They must have  war work to do,and so, an Ottawa dispalch says,  Canada is lo have a regular war school, in which  larism, lhe downfall pf IhejGcrman empire, may  be inculcated into the young men of'lhe Dominion, and may become conspicuous in all departments of life.   And, in addition to thc war school  Canada   is  asked   to jump into   the 'business* of  buildinn- and maintaining a navy. More lhan this,  the Mother Country has an aerial white elephant  on her hands in many millions of dollars1 worth-  of military flying'machines, winch O-^.da h endeavoring lo put into commission and keep well  maimed.    Really,  in  view  of (hc. Allies  having  won the war that was to end all war, and after  living  a  few  hundred  years  at peace with   the  world, it does seem strange that only now when  there is lo be no more war, Canada should establish, a real school of war-  Dominion Lands Open to Civilian Entry  An increased demand by the public for.information regarding land selllement is reported by  the Department of thc Interior at Qlla>va. This  increased interest is attributed partly to thc fact  that Crown lands in Western Canada within 15  miles of a railway, which heretofore havc been  reserved for returned men, became available for  civilian entry on the lsl of May. Besides Crown  lands that may be available, it is estimated that  there are about 200:000. quarter-sections of pri-  valcly-owned land's lying idle in the Prairie provinces, most of them within easy reach of railways. ' '        ".  In co-operation with Provincial officials, the  Department of the Interior has compiled and  published very full particulars regarding unoccupied, privately-owned farm lands in Manitoba,  Saskatchewan^ Alberla, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island" This information is published by districts and is issued free of  charge and includes such details as the price al  which land may bc purchased, terms of. sale,  acreage suitable" for cultivation, nature of^soil  and value of buildings. -  ���������������������������  II will bc noted lhal the Department of thc Interior is not publishing the same details wilh regard-ta farm lands in. British Columbia. Yet the  number of settlers coming into lhis Province  to find homesteads would indicate that they prefer to locale here wtiere the. winters arc less to be  dreaded.

A year' ago potatoes "were selling at $100 per ton and  hard to obtain. This year they are a drug on the market  _at-^froib-=$1 5^to^$2CU^ueu=LQn.^a.ncl-many-luuKT*Eed .tons w'11  ihavc to be fed on the farms to the hogs or the stock. No  'loubt many growers have become discouraged over the  results of the past season and to those R.G.Ne\vl'y_i. Superintendent Experimental Farm. Tnvermcro, offers this advice. "It is the man that stays with tho game who is the  winner in the long run. Tie that plunges into it one year  and out tho next will have to take thc gambler's chance.  Climatic conditions are of greater importance than  ���������������������������-'..i! comjilions .in iho economic production of potatoes.  In tho Columbia Valley we have ideal climatic conditions.  The nights arc cool; thc days warm and .clear: while tinder irrigation the moisture Supply is readily controlled.  II. is well known that in humid climates potatoes are subject to many fungous diseases such a.s late blight, etc., but  ai thc dry atmospheric conditions that prevail in this  district blights are practically unknown.  If farmers will plant good seed; give the growing crop  the necessary cultivation and irrigation, there is no reason  why fifteen or twenty 'tons of potatoes'- per acre cannot  be harvested. On the plot work at the Experimental'  Station Invermere, twice these yields have been obtained  and through selection and cultural methods we hope to  produce even hotter results. From experimental work  to date we are inclined, to recommend individual tuber  selection as the best means of improving the yields of  potatoes-. A "couple of weeks at least before planting, the  potatoes should be placed thinly on the floor in the barn  or cellar where they are exposed to light. At once they  will start to sprout, but these sprouts will not get over  half to three-quarters of- an inch in length. Select only  the potatoes that have strong, thick, vigorous sprouts for  seed and you will find that you are able to keep up the  vitality of your potatoes and increase the yields.  ^^ CIVI C������������������F ff IP E  f^v A clock -tkats Wing  r0^Jyl������������������^     on its  Side  Is like a Sleepy town  That nasn't &n.y  **��������������������������� CIVIC-PRIDE,  It's Silerxt and. rutia-down!

GOLD, CITY  In December, 191S, with the. approval and endorsement of - the governments of the five great powers���������������������������,  Great Britain, France, Italy, Japan  ancl the United States, a committee  of their Red Cross Societies was  constituted "to formulate and propose to the Red Cross Societies of  the world, an extended program of  Red Cross activities in the interests  of humanity."     -       -"  As a result, a League of Red Cross  Societies is today organized, and in  addition to the five powers already  mentioned, it now- includes in its  membership twenty-six of. the. other  civilized  powers of the  world.  T&ts League of Red Cross Societies was. created to:- Organize and  stimulate throughout the world Red  Cross-, peace���������������������������-activities; establish  close co-operation between all Red  Cross Societies; "fight disease and  spread health; develop existing Red  Cross Societies and build up new  ones; serve as a universal clearing  house for Red Cross work in peace  time.        *  It has directed and .developed-anti-  typhus campaigns in Eastern Europe; organized mtembersh^p' campaigns for Red Cross Societies; instituted nursing services; created  public health. scholarships; sent out  missions to study means of relief.  It is organizing a world campaign  against communicable diseases; promoting child welfare; training public  health nurses for service where most  needed; building up in both hemis-  pheres=the=Junior-^Red^Cross ^spreading public health propaganda  through publications, films, lectures,  and similar means.  It will enlarge the field for Red  Cross work; mobilise relief workers  in case of national calamities; keep  Red Cross Societies in close touch  with one another; ensure the univer-  satallty of the Red Cross; create a  new sense of human fellowship.  For the first time in its history,  therefore, civilized humanity as a  whole Is declaring relentless warfare  against disease,' famine, and other  devastating forces which are working for Its downfall. In this fight,  the League of Red Cross Societies  serves as general headquarters to  direct the campaign.  I love to watch the pale blue sky  And see the clouds go sailing by,  I love to hear the-robins sing,  I love to hear the church bells ring,  I love to hear the cock's shrill crow,  I .love, to watch the  sunset's - glow.  I love to see the stars at' night,  I love, I love the  pale moonlight.  I love to go to school each day,  I love to kiss the-tears away.  I love the apple trees in bloom,  I love the soft, soft sliver moon.

THE RED  CROSS  In times of Peace?  Despite the -world-wide activities of the Red  Cross .since - the close of.. the war, and the  incalculable amount of good which it has  accomplished in the intervening period, there  are still many persons, uninformed, who somewhat wonderingly ask, "Why the Red Cross in  times of peace?"  The mission of the Red Cross, as. it is evidenced throughout the world today, is.a twofold  ' one:    Post-war   work   and   peacetime   work.  Briefly summarized, their activities, as applied  to the British Columbia Division, are as follows:  Post War Work,  1. To continue and complete war work  amongst soldiers still in hospital. ^ -  2. To maintain the existing workshop for dis*  abled soldiers, and to increase the number of  these v^-gwshops.  Peace Time Work  1. To train and maintain Red Cross  public health nurses for service in the rural  districts, as well as in the sparsely-settled  pioneer sections of British Columbia.  2. Ta provide, emergency service and  outfits throughout the Province for dispatch to and service at the scene of  accident or disaster.  3. To relieve sickness among the needy  everywhere and anywhere in British Columbia. ;*  4. To promote lied Cross principles and  practice amongst the youth of British Columbia���������������������������to enlist their sympathies and help,  and to enroll them in the Junior Red Cross.  .

Don't hum or whistle. Be considerate of your partner. In any  case the tune should be changed once  every ten minutes. Hum in the  same key with the orchestra, .but  don't  attempt  to  drown  their "must i..  Don't .become angry if, when you  you start humming, your partner  asks "what did you say?" It probably  sounded  that way  to. her.  Don't woggle. Swaying may "fob  good  exercise  but it  is  bad  form.  If you can't talk and dance at the  same  time,  don't talk.  Don't forget that you are simply  dancing. The privilege of putting  your arm around the girl's waist is  in the contract when you asked her  to dance but .this does not call for  any love scenes.  The fellow who said that the ball  room was a great place to spoon in  may be.dead wrong, but from appear-  ences it is evident that there are a  great many who are willing to take  the chance.  Don't forget the audience. "Chee'  charming," may be a great indoor  sport but one of the principle rules  is that there must be no spectators.  Some one  may think  it is bad  taste.  Don't strain your nervous system  Some people don't dance; they just  work.  Effect of Freight Rates  on Business Exaggerated  Indications are multiplying that  efforts of shippers and producers in  many parts of the country to blame  the. unsatisfactory state of their  s businesses upon present freight  rates are not going to pass unchallenged. The United States railroads  are -preparing to ask the Senate  Committee on Interstate Commerce,  when it takes up its inquiry into the  railroad suituation next month, to  sift these statements to the bottom.  Daniel   Willard,  president   of   the  Baltimore'& Ohio says:  "I have personally asked many  large manufacturers and shippers of  poods w&at effect it would have upon  .their shipments at the present time  if freight charges were cancelled altogether, and if the railroads 'would  move the'tonnage offered free of  charge. Invariably the answer has  been that it would make practically  no difference at all in the volume of  business -because people were not'  buying at the present-time."  Chairman Clark has recently made  public-the results of his inquiry into  the assertions  of Florida  fruit an<^  vegetable shippers that' freight rates'  are  now  so  high   that  they  cannot'  profitably   ship   their   products .to  market.    Mr. Clark found that ship-'5  ments of  Florida fruits  and  vegetables   between   November   1,   1920,  and February 28, 1921 amounted to  28.420 carloads, while in-the corresponding period of the year before,  under the old rates. s"ch shinments'  had been 26,886 carloads, an increase  for the present season of 1.534 ear-  loads.  The Railway Age asserts that on  April 16 the p -^rage price paid nro-  ducers for cabbage in Texas was $7  a ton, the freight rate to Chicago  was $26.30. includin? refri<""-aHng  charges and Federal tax on freie-ht  charges, and total cost laid down in  Chicago approximately 1,000 miles  from the nroducing fields, was $33.30  a ton.
