 m  tf  IN WHICH IS MERGED THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WAL KER'S WEEKLY.  Vol. 14, No. 11, Whole No. 688  THURSDAY, JUNE 9th, 1921  Subscription, $ 8  "Work on MaraiRevelstoke  Auto Road Starts This Week  A force of men started work on th*  completion of the Revelstoke-to-Mara  auto road this week. It is -promised  that the short piece of road to connect  up the roads already built will be com-  pleted in a few months, and the road  will be opened'to auto traffic this fall.  Completion of this auto road will  open up to the people of Revelstoke  a beautiful driveway into the Okanagan Valley. This has long been desired and we may look for a great influx of people from Revelstoke way as  soon as they can travel this way.  Considerable repair work and grading must be done on the stretch of  road along Mara Lake which was  slashed and "partly "graded three years,  or more ago, as this road has had llt-  tie work put upon it _since it was  opened.  ,rrhe road from Mara to Enderby by  way of Grindrod, is already in good  condition, but the east road as far as  Grindrod requires a lot of work put  upon it if it is to be used by autos.  The probability is that it will remain  a -secondary highway and that the  main highway from Enderby to Salmon Arm will receive the greater attention from the Department. This  would mean that attention should be  given to the ��������������������������� read from Salmon Arm  highway to Gr'ndrod and thence to  Mara.    -  Whatever     step     the _ Government  f ' i  takes  in  this  direction, one  thing is  certain, the road to Revelstoke from  the Okanagan is now assured and we  may look for big things within the  next year or two as a result of the development of auto intercourse between Revelstoke and the Okanagan.  STEEL WILL SOON BE LAID  ������������������ ft       ������������������F= -  J. L. Ruttan Thinks C. N. R. Line Will  Be   Finished  Much doubt has been expressed if  the C. N. R. from Kamloops to Kelowna ever will be built. So many delays have been permitted and so little  done in the matter that people directly interested have about. given . up  hope.  As a matter of fact the farming interests of Grand Prairie do not care a  sob about the road.    They are almost  - exclusively large stock  ranchers  and  prefer walking their stock to market  =���������������������������   centres.    However, there are other-In-  , terests, and the general development  ,   ot the country through which the C.N.  " R. runs demands tliat it be finished:   >'-  . J.JL.���������������������������R_uttan was in from his lumber]  mill at .Falkland a few days ago.:  He  is   particularly .concerned   about" the  -early completion of the roafl.    While  ��������������������������� he allows for some doubts,, conditions,  he says, point to the completion of the  -road this season.    Thirty carloads of  steel landled in Kamloops last week,  J and he has the assurance of one "in  the kno^y" that construction engineers  /have left .Ottawa empowered to" start  1   work and drive to completion as early  as possible.  LIQUOR   PENALTIES  Notice given tc Near Beer Bars Stating Penalties  UCENSED   TO   PAY   TAXES  This   is   a   free country.   You are  free to pay taxes.   Put in order to pay  - taxes, if Vou are, in business or are a  manufacturer, you must first buy a  license. This license entitles you to  pay a business tax. It isn't a license  to do business for you already bave  paid tbat license to,the local author-  :^itiesf=^You==also;=;-ialrea<ly^have=-p������������������idi  taxes to the provincial authorities to,  do business. Therefore, you pay tbe  license to the' Dominion authorities  for the privilege of paying taxes to tbe  inland . revenue collector. And, it  seems, there are deputy Inland revenue collectors and deputy deputy Inland revenue ��������������������������� collectors without number, each one of which is prepared to  take your tax money. One day we get  .an imperative demand from one to  pay our taxes to him. Next day another, a deputy deputy collector sends  l lis equally Imperative demand to pay  our tax money to him. Really, it is  difficult to tell just bow free % fellow  is in this free land of ours. First you  are taxed by the local authorities to  go into business; then you are taxed  by the Provincial authorities after you  get into business and lastly you are  taxed by the Dominion authorities  for staying in business and taxed  again ^if you make anything out of the  business. ,  It   is   all   very   much   all right of  course, but where is it going to end?  The following notice_hasr been mailed to alf local vendors of near beer:  Pursuant %o instructions this day  received _ from the Liquor Control  Board, Victoria, B. C, I hereby give  you  notice:  /(l.).That fsom and after midnight of the 14th day of'June, A.D.  1921, "It is unlawful for anyone other  than a Government Vendor, to. sell  liquor, to any person.

Weather conditions _, were most favorable and a big crowd gathered to  enjoy the day in the old time*spirit  of fellowship- Qther celebrations,  more pretentious, may be held in the  Okanagan, but none can take the  place of this Mara Day picnic nor aid  so much in the development of that  spirit of ' community enjoyment  There is "something distinctly Mara-  istic about this Kelvin Grove picnic; there is a wholehearted nes������������������  about it,.a genuineness, a. free-and-  easiness, that makes everybody the  better for having attended. Last Fri-,  day's picnic was a surprize "to many  who were present for the first time.  They little knew the ideal nature of  Kelvin Grove for picnic purposes,  nor could they realize the glad welcome awaiting them from the hospitable people, of Mara. * ������������������  MORNING SPORTS  From 9 o'clock in the morning until  '6 o'clock in the evening there were  sports of some-kind being pulled off  by the committee in charge, and it  ought to be said to the credit of-the  committee men that the *nany items  on the program could not have been  handled-better.      _ e "  A long program of cnlldren's races  occupied the morning hours. Then  lunch was served, "when everybody  seated themselves in^a ciiyle in the  shade of the trees surrounding the  play ground and were served by the  men and women in charge.. This was  a delightful feature of the day.  -..    AFTERNOON. SPORTS  After-the dishes were washed and  an hour" enjoyed in social intercourse,  SUCCESSFUL SOCIAL AT ASHTON  CREEK  A successful lawn social was held  on Wednesday of last week by the'  ladies-of Ashton Creek at the home of  Mrs. Bawtree to help raise funds for  the building of a new school house.  Thanks to the generous support of  everyone Kh the district and of many  friends iri town, a total of $40.60 was  obtained.  PRETTY JU.NE WEDDING     -  A very - pleasant event took place  at* the home of Mr. and Mrs. James  Kerr Smiley, Deep Creek, oii Monday,  May 30th. at 11 a.m. when their, eldest  son, Geoffrey Hooper was united in  marriage to Miss Mabel Armstead of  Birkenhead,   Shetsblre,   England," shefwhtch meant another nail for two to  baying arrive* from the Melita the  Friday evening before. - l  -A number of guests were present to  witness the ceremony, which was performed by the Rev. M." D. McKee of  Salmon Arm,0Mrs. McKee also being  present. '  ^The^rooms^wereHastefuly^decorated  in lilac and white flowers, and on a  side/ table ^were to be seen many of  the beautiful presents received.  Tbe^bride who was supported by  the groom's sister, Mrs. S. A. Gorle,  wore a dress of white crepe-de-chene,  and long veil with wreath of orange  blossom. The groom was assisted by  his brother,' Leonard, and Mr. S. A.  Gorle gave* the bride away.  After refreshments were served the  happy couple motored to Vernon,  where they would take the boat for  points down the lake the following  iay.  for the reason that everybody joined  in the sport and bad a good .- time  themselves and made fun for others.  Nobody was too proud to run,-or to  jump, or to thread a needle or drive'**a  nail.  " Think of it, there were 16 women  joined in the nail driving contest.  They were divided" into fours and  each woman bad to drive three nails  in a piece of timber long enough for  the four to'kneel oeside. Then the  winner in each batch of four bad to  'drive" off and in this there was a lie,  autos being parked in the shade by  the running course, and every visitor  was enthusiastic in praise of Mara  people and the generous spirit in  which.- the whole affair was given.'  There were booths there where icecream, fruits, candies and light drinks  could be purchased but other than  this the "eats" were-served free and  jlentifully to  everybody.

McMahon  A   HINT  TO   BOB  The Sbevlin Equalizer says: We  thank the Okanagan^Commoner (B.C..  for the kind remarks made about -us  in a recent issue of that snappy little  weekly. Our regards to the boys,  Harry, and tell Constable Bailey to  buy himself a sheep dog to help keep  the_ cows in the country where they"  belong.  Summerland is to have this fall the  best of the many good apple displays  ever exhibited here. This means a  good deal, as Summerland has long  had the reputation of putting, on the  best apple show In  B.  C.  drive. -.In all tbere were 62 spike-  ized wire nails driven by 16 women,  more or less excited, and, -would- you  believe -- it, there wasn't a thumb  cracked. That's a record. Jim Bell  was one of the Judges. He watched  the proceedings from a distance which  Wemed=to^us==dangerously^clo"seriand-  sweat a bucketful for tbe contestants  doing the work.  Another event which was more than  usually interesting was tbe old men's  race. In this Jas. Emeny and Uncle  Arthur were given a handicap of eight  or ten paces'. When the "going" started Mr. Massey, the winner, simply  walked ayay from the field and slowed up to see who was following. In  hundreds of races in the Old Country  and in ��������������������������� this Mr. Massey never has  been beaten, though an old man, hc  retains a swiftness and strength that  none of his age can reach.  In the tug-of-war between Mara and  GrUidrod there was some heavy pulling. " Grindrod won the first prill, but  in the second arid third 'they couldn't  budge the anchorman of Mara, Jim.  Bell, who has pulled in this position  for many years.  Tho women of Mara' and Grindrod  were next to try their strength on the  rope, ^yhen Mara won in two straights  This was followed by the boys' tug-  of- war which closed the day's sports.  Refreshments were again served by  the ladies of Mara, assisted by the  menfolk, and preparations then were  made for the dance in Mara Hall that  night.

If  , this expression was heard once on the grounds at  the. Mara picnic last  Friday,  Mara  Day, it was  heard hundreds of times, voiced, hy Endciby people who attended the annual picnic for the first  Line,     'ihey   were   delighted   by   the   hospitable  treatment received from llie people of Mara, and  were surprised  at  the beauty and  natural suitability of Kelvin Grove as a picnic place.    And  many expressions were heard suggesting lhat the  grove be set apart as a permanent grove for picnic and recreation purpose's1.   It was agreed by all  lhal the location is ideal, and the thought seemed  lo bc that the grove should be undcrbrushed lo  a greater distance froni  the clearing, and tables  and seats provided under the shade trees.   It was  recognized lhat Mr. Kellett, owner of thc ground,  could not hc expected to d.o  thc clearing, at his  own  expense, nor could  thc people of Mara, be  asked to undertake thc cost alone.    It should be  borne  by  the people of  the district, it -was  the  opinion'of  many.     It  was' recognized   that   the  grove is a mosl valuable asset to the district as a  whole and that, if the owner would undertake to  set it aside as a permenent recreation grove, i'or  picnics, etc., and havc it reachable by the old Sicamous road, it would bc in thc interest of all for  the work to be done by-popular subscription.    It  believe in the intrinsic-stability, of ourselves and  of our country; if we realize our problems and  meet them with confidence; if we think of progress instead of stagnation; if we prove our faith  in ourselves, our cominunity, our province and  our Dominion by giving our support, our  thoughts and our time to putting our weight behind them; then no one can doubt the outcome.  Dropping Millions Into the Ocean  Canada is having rather aa awkward time in  her effort to pay thc costs of operating the "gift"  navy sent over from England. Really Canada  has as much use for a navy as thc average Canadian has for a fan in midwinter to keep the ilics  olf Afler all thc subterfuge and camouflage, so  thoroughly understood, we all ol" us know why  thc "gift" was made by thc Molher Country. We  will pay the upkeep, alright, but all thc same wc  realize that thc Canadian navy, as a fighting proposition, is a joke. It isn't large enough to be of  any rcal^scrvicc and is too large and .costly as a  plaything. ^  Thc othcr day in thc Dominion House, the  Hon. Mr. Ballantyne, Minister of Fisheries and  Marine^ was reluctantly forced to ask Parliament  for $2,500,000 with which to main lain the naval  "gift" and pay the wages of its personnel of six  hundred men, bf whom less lhan two score arc  Canadians. Thc "objections of Dr. Michael Clark  of Red Deer and the Hon. W. S. Fielding, formerly minister of finance, were emphatic. Thc  latter condemned the "gift" as a "white elephant"  and the action of the government in accepting it  as deserving of reproach.  Represent a tves of thc Farmers' Progrcssvc  party condemned, the navy as useless and needless to Canada and deprecated the,waste of such  a large sum of money, comparing it wilh thc  appropriation of agricultural needs and promo  tion,. Undoubtedly thc opinion of thc majority of  thc people of Canada is that such an expenditure  thinks the Farm and Home, of Vancouver, is an  exact parallel to pouring a similar amount right  into thc ocean.  Obsolete Medical Ac  Dr. Downing, of Downing's sanatorium, Vancouver, was before thc court thc other day and  was fined $10 and costs., for practicing healing  contrary to thc Medical Act. Thcrc is no law lo  prevent any person from practicing law or mediae 'tovided hc docs nol charge for his"services,  is  not  known   that anv such  plan  could  be- ar-  ranged, and wc arc simply repealing the remarks j^Downie is a chiropractor.    He has performed  ol many visitors to the grounds on Mara Day.  It L      - - -    '  does seem to bc  such an' asset  so seldom, utilized  many mav  , .,       ,    ,i    i      ii    .    l        i manv wonderful cures at his sanatorium., and un-  be a great loss to the loca ity to have! Jtok  , t adverlisement in onc of Ihc  t and to have it so little known and  &M],    n������������������*pcrs.  Perhaps the  suggestion of  bring aboul some concrete action.  SO j  I  Miss Laut's Message to Canadians  No more important message could be given thc  people of Canada than lhal being delivered on  .liie Rocky Mountain circuit of thc Canadian  Chautauqua by Miss Agnes La lit, and there is no  person better lilted to deliver that message than garding thc propriety of advertising J'or������������������ business?  Thcy freely adopt all manner of little stunts to  papers. This is the finding of the court  as quoted in the press: "I must admit that I am  unsympathetic towards thc Act, but J think tlie  Act has been passed against any human being  \\Jho dares to advertise lhat he is a curative  agency of any sort or description, especially when  that human being goes into lhe witness box and  admits lhat he makes his living out of it."  Isn't it odd for medical men, usually pre Hy well  informed,  to adhere to  thc ancient custom  re-  Miss Laul. Born a Canadian, and being one of  many thousands, kicked out of Canada to thc  Slates on the toe ol* necessity, shc has acquired  the hannv faculty of seeing the mighty possibilities of Canada from the view point of America,  and can fully realize how much we have need for  a bigger, broader vision of Canadian nationalism.

We are too prone as a;  people to follow the tag-end of our neighbors to  lhe soulh of lhc line, or to look across the ocean  for our national policy, instead of- shaping it* in  the interest of lhc great Dominion. We allow our  political leaders to play parochial politics with  national issues in a way that is shameful. Miss  Laul asked the old, old question: Why i.s il: Canada i.s older in years lhan lhc Uniled Slates, and  has resources as freat if not greater than our  cousins, yet while their country1 has grown in development and increased in population to one  hundred and ten millions, Canada has been content 16 jog along with a population now reaching  seven or eight millions, and with a corresponding  lack of development.  This message was augmente'd on thc  day's program by the Rev. Dr. Gordon, who, in  closing an inspiring address on "Grit, Grace ahd  Greenbacks." held Canada up as the onc bright  spjil on lhe universe where "character" must  count il* lhe Dominion is to occupy lhc important  position lo whicb shc is divinely appointed as the  k-v-sin'-w in |he arch thai* must in future bind  Great Britain and America into one mighty people, one divine influence for peace and fellowship  in the. world.

But you  cannot, that is, if you are a business  man you cannot, pay taxes unless you  have a license. If you pay a license  to pay taxes as a manufacturer, you  can pay taxes as a manufacturer, but  if you have to "pay more taxes than  a manufacturer you have to have another license to pay the taxes that  you ought to pay, or have to pay more  than the taxes that your license as a  manufacturing taxpayer entitles you  to pay. Otherwise you will be fined  if you don't pay them, and you'll be  fined if you do pay unless you first  pay for a - license to' pay them;  and then, ��������������������������� again, you will be fined if  you don't get a license so that you  can pay the taxes and- so avoid, being  fined for not paying the taxes just  because you didn't have any license  to pay them.

The air is fragrant with the taint  of turpintine and linseed oil, for  everyone is using paint, according to  the rules of Hoyle. And this'Jl hold  to be a sign that Jonah has gone  overboard; trade brightens up, the  outlook's fine, and normalcy will be  restored. Ill fares the land whose  people say, "We can't afford to paint  the barn," who see the fence all dingy  gray, and do not seem to care a darn.  For years the people have been bent  beneath a load of care and woe, and  so Ihey would not spend a cent for  any brand of paint we know. Their  load was great, they had the dumps,  and there was no relief in view; un-  painted went the cis.tern pumps, the  cowsheds and the hencoops, too.  While things were thus I always said,  "Our land will have its ugly sores until we buy -Venetian red and paint  their roofs and cellar doors.. All optimistic spiels are bosh, and normalcy  is out and down; and talk of progress  will not wash when shabby houses, fill  the town.V But now the sign for  i which I yearned is evident in every,  grad, the smell of linseed oil's returned, and it" has made all boosters  glad. Men seek -the paintshop with  the cuah, the kopecks and. the iron  men, and . then they ply the useful  brush and make the old shacks young  again.���������������������������Walt Mason.

Labor leaders , ana che Labor  Press want immigration stopped.

Winnipeg    and    Canada  one class,  have been dealing  with  it annually  for the past twenty years. Any ex  cess in unemployment at the present  time is due to the fact that the public stopped buying goods made dear  by too high a cost of production, in  Canada needs new people, needs  them badly, on the farms and in all  lines of industrial activity where it  is now almost impossible to get men  to do the great amount of necessary  rough  labor to keep industry mov-  which labor figureslargely.

Certainly,   there   are "people  is abundance of work in Canada and, who should not be permitted to come  there will be plenty for everybody  to do ��������������������������� immigrants and all ��������������������������� for  -years to come. The present difficulty is. that capital will not "gamble on the present high cost of production.    Therefore   it   is- not   the  into the country, because in the very  nature of things their admittance  means' conflict and' radical social  disturbance in our midst. Canada  already0 has its share of this class.

The United States, and Canada  jointly import about 3,000,000 pounds  of alfalfa seed from Europe annually.  This is bad enough but there is a  worse feature.  Aside from European imports. Canada annually imports large quantities  of this seed grown in the United  States. The two sources of imports  at present supply us wit^i a large  share of our requirements which  could easily be grown in Canada ;u-  particularly in'British Columbia.  Alfalfa seed production opens up a  promising and profitable field to all  who will.enter and observe thc reasonable laws of agriculture.���������������������������Farm and  Home.

The . pole yard of the Okanagan  Sawmills, where the Columbia Flouring Mills used to stand, has been  equipped with platforms and carrier  chains run by electric motors, which  havc a handling capacity of 1000  poles a day from the water to shipping  piles. Tlie poles are directed by a  man with a pikepole from the water  and "nosed in" to a chute at the bottom of which runs an endless chain  with a doubled tootffcd "snag" placed  at    regular    intervals.      The    "snag"'  hooks the polo by the nose and starts"  it up the chute. It is "curried to the  platform chains. These carry it- to  the piling platform, and when the pole  is carried along to the pile of its  length it is tossed out by a man with  a canthook and rolls down the gang  chute into the pile. Thc whole operation takes but a few minutes and is  done with case hy the man handy  with a canthook, greatly reducing the  cost of handling and easing the work  for Lhe man.

RANPS  Ford Dealer, Enderby  The survey lecently undertaken hy  the Provincial Department of Agriculture to ascertain the number of Orientals owning- land within the Province has revealed a far worse condition than was suspected by the most  pessimistic. Altogether there are 10-  S0 Asiatics engaged in agriculture;  including land owned and-leased thcy  control 26.91S acres. The land owned  outright by Orientals totals 14,050  acres and is held by 492 Japanese and  ,116 Chinese; of the leased land, 103  Japanese control 17S1 acres :and the  figures grow apace. The Chinese  specialize in truck growing-and the  Japanese in the production of small  fruits.  These figures will surprise some  people who were inclined to take, the  matter of Orientals very, seriously.  Residents of tho Fraser Valley can  testify as to its importance but there  are few white people remaining in  some parts of the Pacific Great Eastern and Lillooet areas to tell anything  of it there; they have been supplanted  by asiatics.  Something must I ��������������������������� ��������������������������� done in thc  mmediate future in the matter of regulating the ownership of- land if we  are to keep white men and t'heir families, on tho land in areas where at the  present time they are being systematically surrounded by Japanese and  Chinese and forced to mpve out or sell  out because of the"4 unfitness of such  neighbors' whose ideals and standards  S living are so far below those of thel  average Canadian's. Premier Meig-'  hen, to whom a copy of the report has  been forwarded, is_ expected to request  of Great Britain that Canada be given  full power to control the' matter of  land ownership when he attends the  Imperial Goiif rence this ,-month.���������������������������  Farm and Home.

Ho has achieved his honors by the right of might and he is  always first in everything. The lot of  the Eskimo dog is a hard one. In thc  firbt place he has to earn his living by  drawing sledges. In the next place,  food is so scarce that a dog is usually hungry, even hungry enough to  eat his harness, or indeed, any bits of  skin and leather he cay find. To prevent this' the men rub the leather  cords with tar. But in order to live  at all, an Eskimo dog has to fight his  way. ������������������  REEEVES  ENDERBY  Heaven,  quire it.  like .'liell,   is a habit.
