Thursday, June 16, 1921.  * Subscription $3   per year  Weekly Newspaper Editors  of Canada Enjoy Coast Trip  The convention of Canadian' Week  ly Newspapermen held in Vancouver  last week proved the largest and most  enjoyable gathering of the kind ever  convened in that city. Over 400 editors and their wives, were in -attendance and there was not a lost hour nor  an idle one from the hour of .convening, Thursday morning at 10:30, until  the convention's close.  Following the business session there  was a trip to Victoria planned for the  convention delegates; C. P. R. officials  exerting themselves to accommodate  the large' crowd and the newspapermen of Vancouver and Victoria providing everything possible to make  the auto drives in and about Vancouver and Victoiia���������������������������long to be remembered���������������������������and . the luncheons,' theatre  party, the clam bake, the trip to the  Dominion Observatory, the informal  dance in the Empress Hotel, Victoria,  and all the many other courtesies extended, incidents of the big gathering  whicti<would contribute to the pleas-  - d ure of all, without imposing any labor  or tiring' efforts upon them.  The Weekly Association  The Canadian  Weekly Newspapers'  Association is an offshot of the,Canadian   Press. Association,   wliich   two  years ago was divided into the daily,  weekly and trade paper sections.   The  meeting at Vancouver was the second  annual convention of the weekly section:   The   weekly   men   are 'enthusiastic over the success of their.associ-  :- ation _ in    Its _ twoi years*   operation.  .- Since the last annual gathering many  .neSv members have been added," until  now,.nearly all the .important ..weekly  publications oi the Dominion are" in it.  . The. Eastern  visitors  were .^delight-  ed with their trip west.    Mr. W. Rupert Davies,  retiring president  of the  association, stated tfiat it was safe to  say that more than 90 per cent, of the  members were making their first *trlp  west.  "To say that they were delighted  with their experiences is to put it  mildly," he said. "Not only are~they  enjoying western scenery and envir-  onments,_but they are charmed with,  the evidences'of western hospitality  that. they are meeting on all sides.  There is no doubt that when they return every one of the% will have  pleasant things to say of you westerners, and the trip from a publicity  standpoint will not be without benefit* to the West."  A few years ago it used to be a  common impression that the weekly  ===men^-would^have=-to=give^way^before  the encrochment of the big dailies,  but Mr. Davies says that opinion :has  now been disproved.  "The weekly field is quite secure,"  he said. "The weekly papers have a  clientele exclusively their own arid,  while readers everywhere patronize  the daily papers they are also loyal to  their own town' papers. The scope of  each is widely separated, and by the  improvements of their papers in thc  last few years the weeklies' have won  " a warm spot in the affections of their  own districts that nothing can dislodge."  p. C. Association  , In conjunction with* the Weekly  Association, which covers the Dominion, there is organized in British Columbia a provincial assocation, and the  annual convention of this association  was held in the Vancouver Hotel on  Tuesday, before the arrival of the  Eastern delegates. -Issues affecting  more especially the weekly press of  the Province are taken care of by the  Provincial' organization. Hence the  questions disposed of by the Provincial body in convention had liftie to  , do with those coming before the Dominion-wide organization.  At the association meeting Mr. F.  J. Burd. of the Vancouver Province  was . elected past-president; L. J.  Ball, Vernon News, president; Hitgh  Savage, Cowichan Leader, first vice-  president; J. A. Bates, Fraser Valley  Record, second vice-president;  H. M.  Walker,   Endeiby   Commoner,   secre  tary-treasurer.    Executive, M. O. Bill  ings, Standard Sentinel, Kamloops; R.  R. Hindmarch, Nanaimo Herald; Walter Jordon, Revelstoke Review.    Vernon   was- selected   as   the   place for  holding   the   1922   convention.  Business and Pleasure  Following the address  of welcome  by the Mayor of Vancouver, the president, Mr. W. Rupert Davies, of Renfrew,  Ont.  addressed  the convention,  in the course of which he spoke encouragingly of the futue and with just  pride of the accomplishments of the  Weekly  Association  during  the  past  year,  attributing to" the work of Mr.  E. Roy Sayles, manager of the association, much of the credit for the sea-  on's growth.  The report of Mr. Sales showed a  net gain in .membership' for the past  year of 163 and a total membership of  470, out of a possible- 750.  Interesting and instructive papers  were  read  before  the  convention  by  F. A. J. Davis.of Carleton Place, Ont.  on the subject "Should Weekly Newspapers Have Cost Systems; "by L. J.  Ball, of Vernon on "The Difference in  Cost Between- Eastern and Western  Publishing;" by J. G. Keefer, of Norwood, Ont. on "What Does it Cost to  Set Display Advertisements;" by J.  I.

Kennedy, dean of the,  schoo) ' of Journalism, Washington  University spoke on the question of  "Costs' as They Relate to the Subscriber and Advertiser," and as the  convention. was about to closo J. J.  Hurley addressed the delegates on  the question of the use and responsibility of the editorial columns.  Both' Mr. Kennedy and Mr. Hurley  gave to the convention informatioin  and ideals which must be. of universal  service if taken by the individual pub-  lsher and made use of in a practical  way. s. ���������������������������      '  Delegates Entertained  Thursday noon the delegates were  ���������������������������lunched by the .Canadian Club, and  their wives at the same time, ^ere entertained by the members of the  Woman's Press Club. At these functions Vancouver citizens /vied with  each other,' in efforts to make the  A:isitprs___comfortabIe___arid^Jiappy,^and.  these efforts were sincerely appreciated.  In the evening an auto drive to Jericho Beach was enjoyed. There a  "clam-bake" was . prepared,, accompanied by, jnusic by the Marine Band,  and followed by'an exhibition by a hydroplane from Jericho Beach haugar.  Later a concert was given on the  beach by members of Fred. Coucher's  Concert Company. The Kiwanis' Glee  Culb also contributed much to the  evening's pleasure by leading the  singing.  This Joyful beach party continued  until dusk, then there was a display  of fireworks from a scow anchored  a short- distance from shore, with  singing and band music to enliven  the intervals.' Shortly before 9  o'clock the marshals In charge of the  party started to load the autos for  home. This was not a small task. To  carry the party to the beach and  home, again required six of the sightseeing cars of Vancouver, which accommodate forty passengers each,  and possibly 100/ autos. The autos  were contributed by citizen members  of the Vancouver Automobile Club.  It was 10 o'clock when the visitors  reached their hotels, "clammy," happy and ready for bed. . * ���������������������������  Closing Day of Convention  Friday morning and afternoon were  devoted to the election of officers,  passing upon the report of the resolu-  (Continued on page four.)  * ***������������������?*������������������.*������������������&***Z Floods Cause Damage to Coast  ii XXXX XXXXXXXXX  Good    morning!

In the vicinity of Mara, Grindrod.  Enderby and Armstrong the lowlands have been under water for a  number of days and as a conse-  quence=mueh damage has been done.  Flooding of these low lands is by  back-water wh5ch soon will disappear.  Along the Fraser River, however,  where the crops on thousands of acres  are ruined, the water comes from the  giving way of the dykes. This is  a more serious matter and must result in great suffering by those farmers  affected.  Writing in the Vancouver Province  A. G. Lytle tells of conditions there:  Snip���������������������������"There goes. John Oliver's  hand."  Another Snip���������������������������"There goes his  leg." " - " '    '  Swish���������������������������"And off comes his head."  - Saturday afternoon an irate woman,  wife of a Nicomen" Island veteran,  was cutting rhubarb stocks with a  largeo knife. _ . ,  As she cut tlie leaf and root ends  alternately, - she accompanied the  slashes with the above commentary.  Flood' waters at Nicomen Island  were eating the tops off the potato  forty-acre, home,for the second time  in two years.      , ...������������������.-  Sunday afternoon I stood' on a pile  of sandbags stretching along the main  island road.and talked to her across  a twenty-foot gap of water. " .  The six-cows-owned by-the'couple  were  eoting  the  tops  off the potato  any portion was likely to give way if  unusually   high   waters *��������������������������� came.'   - '-  But, as the old-timers like Murdo  McLean,' Seymour brothers and a  host of others, had been doingtefor  years, they sowed their crops with the  philosophical reflection, "we'll hope  for the best." This year the best  that came was the very worst possible.  Today Upper Nicomen Island, approximately 3000 acres, is under  water. Every vestige of crop in that  area is irreparably ruined. The lower island, about 1000 acres in extent,  is immune, except for considerable  seepage, but all that protects it is a  gravel road, and.in many places the .  water is lapping across it, held back  only, by hurriedly erected barriers of  dirt or bags filled with dirt and sand.  An old-time settler, who has seen  nis spring labor swept away six times -  in the last fifteen years, takes a more  lenient view towards the government.  "We went .into this, with our eyes  open," he said. "We"knew, the dykes  would not stand under great pressure  but higher dykes mean higher taxes  and we preferred to worry along and  take a chance. John Oliver may be  somewhat responsible, but we are to  blame, too. .  CITY COUNCIL SESSION  patch near, the barn. They stood  almost' knee-deep in the flood.

City's water system had become useless and it was ordered that a -new   ���������������������������  screen be purchased.  Constable   Bailey   reported   several :  lights had been stolen from the street  lighting poles.

Thompson, while going up  Bear Creek to the Lincoln group this  w ek, found a watch that had been  lost for twenty-one years. Old-timers  will remember that Moir of Three  Forks had been attacked and severely  mauled by a bear on Bear .Creek.  During the scrimmage the watch was  lost. Mr. TThompson wound the  watch and it is still running and-keeping good time. It is open face, screw  case in. front with solid back, silver.  Owing to a deiit oh the edge of the  case It cannot be. unscrewed, but the  fact that the watch is running should  prove a good advertisement for the  manufacturer���������������������������The Leaser, New Denver.  had been marketed when the dyke,  protecting " upper _ Nicomen Island  from the Fraser ��������������������������� River, fell before  the relentless power of the melting  northern  snows  on  Saturday  night.  "Why do you blame John Oliver?"  I asked. ~  '-'Isn't  he  Premier?" She  snapped.  "Wasn't he member for Dewdney?  Didn't he promise in 1917 to build  a dyke that would protect us all?"   ,  "Who are you?" she continued ag-(  gressively. "Are you one of them land  Settlement   fellows?"  Hurriedly I said I wasn't.  "It's just as well," she proceeded,  "for I'd like to give someone a piece  of' my mind. We're absolutely ruined  and for tho second time lir two years.  Wo had $1005 in cash when we bought  this place through the Soldier Settlement Board.

Mr. Cadden is employing a force of  eight men, and hopes to complete the  work in' about six weeks. The contract calls for the' road, to be finished  by the 1st of October, ready for traffic.  This woman's case is typical of  other returned veterans' families who  took up land on Nicomen Island under  the Dominion scheme for aiding veterans. The Dominion Government  provided the land, but the upkeep of  the dykes is in the hands of the Provincial Land Settlement Board under  Col. R. D. Davies. This board acts  as a dyking commission and collects  the. taxes for maintenance since the  local commissioners resigned three  years ago.  Justly or unjustly, "I do not know,  all over the island the'"provincial  authorities are accused of laxity for  failure to fncrease the height of the  dyke  fronting  the  Fraser  River. '���������������������������'  Settlers who lost their crops last  year in mid-July when the dykes  broke almost in the same place, must  have known that the repaired section  was no higher than before and that  WILL   UNIVERSITY   BE   F4NISHED?  Word was sent out from Victoria  some days ago, that the Provincial  Government is prepared to build the  required University buildings providr  ed the people of the Province signify definitely that they desire the  work to proceed. ,r  Every elector who desires to see  the Provincial University put upon  a footing to compare with the Universities of other provinces, should immediately write their member in the  Provincial house and encourage him  to use his influence to have the work  proceeded'with.  The desire of the Government is to  raise the money at once and proceed  with the erection of the buildings.  The land set apart as an endowment for University needs could then  be plotted and sold by the Province  and thus the financial needs of the  University be easily met without  burdening the public in any way.

'  Mr. and Mrs. Cutler moved out to  Okanagan Centre on Monday to take  part in fruit picking season.  Mrs. Fielding took a series of snapshots of the Avashout while it was at  its height an'd they developed into  nice pictures and give a good idea of  conditions then existing.  Owing to the higti water this year  settlers adjacent to the lake are going  to lose most of their crops, especially  cereals and garden stuff, but as the  water is' slowly going down in the  river it is hoped the lake will 7iot  come  much higher.  There was over one foot of watcr  at the rock bluff and the stretch at  Wiers and in consequence^ motorists  were shy of going through and mostly  turned and went back, but some who  ventured got stalled in the water and  enjoyed a bath while geting the car  out.  Dr. K. C. MacDonald, M.P.P.. with  Major Taylor, assistant district engineer held a meeting here on Saturday night .and gave an interesting account of conditions in the province  at the present time. Many questions  were asked and various opinions expressed. It was decided to five local  tractors a trial on road work when  feasible.  The road gang has had a strenuous time the past week with the  leak in Sullivan's-Creek. They have  succeeded in turning the bulk of the  creek back in tlie channel, but owing  to the heavy rain it is running a flood  and needs-constant.watching until'the  water goes. down. No .permanent  work can be done until low water.  It will cost quite a sum to repair the  road.

The-hall looked very-nice'  with"* varied colored J streamers hung  from, the windows and,others strung  across the hall from which suspended  Chinese lanterns, kewpies, and other  ornaments. On the stage were small  tables with vases of -flowers. This  wafs done by some of the young  people. A large crowd took^ in the  dance which was enjoyed- by all and  was ' kept up until daylight. The  many useful and pretty., presents re-  reived by the young couple testified  to the high esteem in which they are  held by their friends and neighbors.

We are having beautiful weather  since we arrived and the country is  looking fine. Battleford is quite a  large place, having in the neighborhood of 5000 population, and it is  beautifully situated, sitting up high  and dry on the banks of the beautiful  Saskatchewan River. The city is considerable of a railway centre on the  C. N. R. which is an assest to it.  I may state that this is not a grain  growing section for you can look  as.far as you can see in every direction and you wil hardly see a field of  grain. It is a rich stock range section of country.  ��������������������������� Business is pretty quiet at present  especially on the railroads, judging  from tlieniimber of empty cars standing on', the siding's and the 'die engines in the' round house, but this is  a slack time of the year.  ���������������������������Now, Mr. Editor, in conclusion I  may say that I like the prahie very  .-      lTo deliver in Enderby at Vernon prices,  McCormick. and Deering farm Implements  Binders        Rakes        Mowers  Tedders      Binder Twine  A few Discs and Gang Plows will0be sold  AT COST tor clean up.

O. raihvays for the excellent service on behalf of the party  and to the newspapermen of Vancouver and Victoria, the citizens of the  j Automobile Club of these cities and to  the Vancouver Hotel management and  to all who contributed so mftch to the  success of the convention.  Friday evening at S o'clock, following an auto trip over Marine Drive,  possibly the prettiest and most interesting drive in Western Canada, the  editorial party assembled at the Capitol Theatre, the finest west of Toronto, and there became the guests of  this popular house. The choicest  scats were reserved for the party and  every courtesy shown. A splendid  program was rendered and was greatly, appreciated by a crowded house.  On, the Marine Drive, the party was  stopped at Gordon Hill and there the  happy 400 were invited by Manager  Van trait of the Gordon Hill Fruit  Growers' Association to walk into the  strawberry patch and fill up. Then  as each was going away a'bouquet of  flowers and a box of most delicious  berries were given with the compliments of the Association. Mr. Van-  trait in accepting the vote of thanks  given said the first carload of strawberries for the season will leave there  this week and will be followed by 25  to 30 carloads before the season ends.  The   Victoria   Trip  At 10 ojclock the editorial -100  gathered on board, the C. P. R. s. s.  "Empi-essCharlottc" and soon were on  the way to Victoria. The weather  was most pleasant and tlie steamer  trip thoroughly enjoyable. Arriving  at -Victoria at 3 o'clock there was little  doing until evening and the ladies of  the party enjoyed a quiet hou: or two  ln, the sumptuous, rest rooms 'of the  Empress Hotel. After dinner "carryalls" and private autos were on hand,  provided by newespapermen of the Island city, to take the party to the  Dominion . Government Observatory  situated at the top of Little Saanich  mountain, seven miles from the city.  The telescope housed under the great  dome is the second largest in . the  world, and the mechanism which  mov s the building and the great instrument can be worked mercly by the  pressure of an electric button. Dr.  Plaskett ancl his assistant patiently  explained the intricate working of the  mechanism, ancl pointed the instrument at the moon. So powerful is the  lense of the telescope that the moon  is brought within 400 miles of the  eye.' It required an hour or two for  all llie editorial party to climb the  ladder ancl take a peep.  Dance   at   Empress  of Vancouver to contribute to the  pleasure of their visitors and the entire trip to Victoria and return was  filled wth "incidents that ever will remain fresh in the memory of those  participating. -For instance, on the  return from the Malahat Drive the  party was "held up" by the North  Saanich Fruit Growers' Association  ancl the autos loaded clown with the  most delicious strawberries that ever  were picked.      ,     ���������������������������  Lowing Cups and Canes  On the return of thc party to Vancouver, dinner was served in the convention hall of thc Vancouver Hotel,  and there magnificent silver loving  cups were given by thc delegates to  Mr. Frank J.

An informal dance  was enjoyed in the Empress ballroom until 12 o'clock, the hotel orchestra providing the music and  many citizens joining the party in  having a good  time.  The   Butchart   Gardens  Sunday mornng at 8:30 autos and  sight-seeing cars were at the Empress  to take the editorial party over thc  celebrated Malahat Drive and to the  Butchart ��������������������������� Gardens. The Malahat  Drive is about 40 miles ahd reaches  Its climax on a summit of 1,200 feet,  ���������������������������where it overlooks the inlet..waters  of Saanich Arm, the straights of  Georgia and of Juan de Fuca. It  was an ideal day for driving and  every mile of the roadway was of interest. '  The party stopped first at Butchart  Gardens, and so interested were they  in the beauty of the flowers and the  masterful way in which they were  handled, that they could not tear  themselves away, with the result  that there was no time left to make  the Malahat drive in time to catch the  boat, which was scheduled to leave at  3:15.  Victoria newspapermen and citizens generally were as ready as those  Tuesday night, June 1-1 th. was a  red ��������������������������� light occasion for a number of  Enderby young men who desired;, to  "cut loose" just once more before  Government Control came into effect. One of them .had proceeded far  enough to have a-.- 12 gallon keg of  beer in his democrat ancl enough  under his vest to be amiably confidential.  The keg of beer was standing in  front of the- Union Hotel and it was  late at night. While the young man  in question was loading' up inside,  several--of his friends unloaded the  keg of beer ancl cached it close by.  Other friends saw the first friends  cache the beer and thcy in turn rolled thc keg to another cache and  walked away. A third bunch ,.of  friends saw the second bunch of  friends steal the keg of beer from tlie  first bunch, and they in turn rolled  the barrel to a third cache.  Finally, somebody else .who was in  on the game, filled an empty keg  wit.li water and substituted it for-the  beer keg. Sometime after.,1 o'clock  tii.at night a crowd unearthed the keg  of beer and carried it. across the  bridge, while��������������������������� the young ,. man  who bought the beer and paid for it  left for home -with the keg of water  behind him in the rig. He didn't  discover that water had been substituted for, beer until the following  day, while the crowd that drank the  beer "ended the hilarity early Wednesday   morning. .
