At this meeting the question of providing some means of disposing of  trade waste more safeely than by thc  present method of burning in rear of  stores was briefly discussed, the final  decision being postponed for further  consideration.    ,  A letter was read from the Dominion Department of Public Works, in  reply to a communication from the  Council calling attention to the condition of the cribbing, etc., protecting  the river bank and urging its removal  or repair. The Department stated it  could not undertake the work but said I Meighen  that   if   the-City   of   Enderby   would  dorsed  lay across Mr. Blackburn's property  to Crescent street, Poison addition, so  that connection could be made with  Mr. Hughes' house. ._> Mayor Barnes  explained that the City could not  legally lay pipe in ground which was  private property, and the applicants  .stated that they were prepared to  bear the entire expense of work ancl  material required . in crossing Mr.  Blackburn's land, provided the City  would ''co-operate and lay the necessary pipe across Crescent street to  Mr. Hughes' property. The" council  approved the proposal and referred  the matter to the waterworks committee to bo carried out.  A communication was received from  the municipal council of Vancouver  stating that a resolution had been put  through by that body against the renewal of. the Anglo-Japa^iese treaty  in its present form, which allows unrestricted entrance into, British* Dominions of the citizens of Japan, and  asked that the resolution be endorsed  and forwarded by cable to Premier  The '"^resolution   was    en  make application at any time for per-  Public Health' Office Keith reported  mission  to  remove  the  works  at'Its the  unsanitary  condition  of the.

Considering" the  return of the Prime Minister, the __pv-  ernment will consider the whole "  question. There is a divided opinion  in ministerial circles as' to whether  another session of Parliament should  be held or a general election brought  on. The dominant influence is against  dissolution, at least until the five federal by-elections take place. If more  than two are won by the government  it will be interpreted as a sufficient  mandate for carrying on through another sessio'h. But if a majority are"  lost dissolution would appear to be/  almost inevitable.

Others  stretched themselves on the cool sandy beach beneath overhanging trees that protected them  from the heat, in the evening bonfires at .the  water's cdg.**, made merry crowds of campers  who enjoyed lo thc full the bright moonlight and  the cool zephyrs tliat stole almost unnoticed oul  oi' tjie mountain draws and canyons to ripple the  otherwise placid surface of tlie lake. It was" a  delightful day and night at the lake, and, barring  a mishap or two lo cars going and coming over  the road, was one big, balmy day oi* pleasure.

A Toledo' grocer prepared two  vciw attractive window displays. In onc window  he put a 100-lb bag of sugar; one-quarter barrel  of flour, and one bushel of potatoes, with very  prominent signs telling that this was all that  $35.75 could buy a year ago. In the othcr window hc placed these same three articles and a  most imposing collection of olher staple groceries, wilh the placard: "$35.75 today will buy  everything in this window."  Anolher grocer in California used this same  idea very tellingly by ^presenting in parrallel  columns whal could bc bought a vear ago and  what could bc bought today for $10.50.

A Period of Drought  Today, when England and France arc experiencing such a desperate drought period, it should  bc interesting lo know lhat once upon a lime the  Brilish Isles were as cold as Greenland, and it  was winter nearly all the year round. Earlier  than lhal lhere was a lime when cinnamon-and  palm grew where London is^now, and it was  summer all the year round and every year. Earlier slill the la ncl was buried under ice and snow,  and still earlier (when lhe sources of British coal  were being laid down) it was covered with a hot,  steaming, tropical forest. In fact, the earth has  swung backwards and forwards, like an immense  stately pendulum, giving alternate periods of  intense cold and genial warmth, witb intermediate periods of mixed warmth and cold. At cither  end of each swing there were no yearly seasons.

Putting a Ban on News  Coalition government in England is (ottering  Jo its fall when it issues an order that thc London  ���������������������������fimes and olher newspapers of the world metropolis who have dared to criticise, possibly unjustly, Lloyd (Ieorge and certain of his ministers,  shall be forbidden to receive the news from Ihe  government news service in common with all  other newspapers of London. This action shows  a weakness on the part of the Lloyd George ministry, and is an acl lhat will have to be reeinded.  It cannot be allowed lo stand, jf England is to  continue to have a free press, and in receding  from its untenable position the government wiil  have to take a healing. The.press of England,  while not in .sympathy with lhe NorlhclilVe newspapers, must demand'that the news ban be lifted.

Vancouver Province, it is now  possible to estimate what thc conference of. thc  Premiers of-thc Dominions has achieved. This,  in brief, hc sums up under seven heads:  1���������������������������It paved thc way for and made possible the  great disarmament conference,- of thc world  powers. * -    _  2���������������������������Ils deliberations resulted in the decision  that Ihcf Anglo-Japanese alliance must he brought  into harmony with thc covenant of Ihe League  of Nalions, which means that the military clauses  of the treaty must he eliminated, and it prompted  thc idea of a conference on Pacilic problems,  which, if it is successful, will make the Anglo-  Japanese alliance unnecessary.  3���������������������������11 created the atmosphere favorable for the  step toward the settlement of thc Irish question  and, Ihrough General Smuts, rescued the negotiations from failure at an extremely criticq)  juncture.  4���������������������������Il enabled thc statesmen of the Pominions  to arrive at full knowledge and comprehension  of the principles underlying the British foreign  policy and of thc effect which thc application of  those principles produced upon the international  situation.  :>���������������������������II settled thc important question of the distribution of the Gcrman reparations among the  various portions of the Jpmpirc in a way satisfactory to all.  =i)=i n-cafTi rrrfctl^fnTl^lefiltwl^Wlain^nncipleT  of the Empire's constitutional development and  cleared up misconceptions and misunderstandings regarding a number of questions such as, for  example, thc decision to appoint a Canadian minister at Washington.  7���������������������������ll discussed and passed useful resolutions  upon such important problems as overseas settlement, development of aerial transportation, improved wireless* aiid cable communications and  shipping.

Sometime.ago it was divulged at an enquiry into the high cost of shoes, that thc amount of  real leather in a pair of shoes did nol amount to  much and therefore had very little lo do with the  price set by thc manufacturer. Now it is claimed  by lhe general organizer of thc Boot and Shoe-  workers' Union lhat lhe cost of labor on, say a  $16 pair of shoes is not more than $1.25. The  cosl. then, is not in the leather nor in Ih.c making  of the shoe.   11 must be in the squeak.

Nothing could be more foolish than  for the War Veterans of the Province  to continue to sell beer at their  clubs in opposition to the requirements of the Moderation Act. The  Act is law and what is' law", all citizens, whether returned men or not,  are required to obey. If the law is  not a good law, then the best way to  get rid of it is by enforcing it to the  letter. If it is unpopular, the Government will quickly hear about it and  will waste no time in bringing down  an amending law.  The Victoria Times' well puts it  when it says: "If another plebiscite  could be taken to test public sentiment in respect of the open sale of  beer and the lighter variety of wines  it is - probable that there would be a  majority in favour of such a plan.  Many people who are not the slightest bit interested in the use of alcoholic stimulants are of the opinion  that a comparatively unrestricted distribution of the less potent kind of  toxicating^liquid- would reduce the use  of the stronger beverages. All, this  may be quite true. But the fact' remains that the Liquor Control Act  definitey provides that intoxicating  liquor shall be sold only by the  official vendor at a government store.  Very naturally this has no relation  whatever to liquid'-purchased outside  the Province and imported under Dominion privilege. Section twenty-six  of the new law reads as follows:  '��������������������������� "Except as provided by this- Act,  ��������������������������� . no   person  .shall,   within   the   Pro-  -   vince,   by   himself,   his   clerk,   servant or* agent,  expose or keep for  sale, or directly or indirectly or upon any pretence, or upon any device,  sell or offer to sell,   or in considerru-  .tion of the purchase     or transfer of  any property, or for any other consideration,   or  at   the, .time  of  the  transfer   of   any   property,- give   to  any other person any liquor."  .   While    the    foreg*oi!ng    section    is  self-explanatory it is further provided  that  neither  a vendor  nor  a  person  acting in any capacity for him shall  sell  liquor in-- any "other place or at  any?- other time or otherwise than as  authorized   by  tlie   Act  and   the  regulations "affecting it.    In other words  a restaurant, a grocery establishment,  a club, a-stationary store, " or other  form of vending agency must not expose any kind, of liquor for sale.    In  view of this precise and definite provision,     and   more  especially  in   the  light, of the decisive verdict of the  Legislature in session", how can it be  argued that either the Liquo'r Control  ^loard   or   th'e   Government   has   ont  ounce    of   authority   to   change   the  statute "without first having obtained  the permission of the elected representatives of the people?  There is nothing in the Act which  may" lead to speculation upon whether  any particular grocery  store,  or any  particular   ice . cream , establishment,  or any particular kind of club might  prevail upon the authorities to train^  the   blind   eye   upon   infractions   of  Section-twenty-six.      And if it is necessary to particularize    on the inter-  p_re_tati_on__of__.the_=prohibition^and^,what_  it includes Section forty-six is as definite as could be and reads as follows :  "No person other than a Government  Vendor shall  sell  or deal  in  any  liquid   known  or  described  as  beer or near-beer or by any name  whatever   commonly   used   to   describe malt or brewed liquor.''    *  The  Premier  of .the  Province  has  given his  opinion upon the question  and, he  regards    any sales  contrary  to the precise provisions of the Act to  be  unlawful.    There- is  no  necessity  even   for  this   opinion.     The   Act   is  plain and capable of being understood  by everybody.    All  that is  necessary  to remove such  doubts as may exist  in the minds of the people is a definite  announcement by the Liquor Control  Board  to the effect that the Government and the Government alone is the  sole and absolute vendor of liquor in  British  Columbia  to  British   Columbians.    Even this procedure is merely  telling the people that the law is the  law.  When Little Towns Grow Old.

Despite the strengthening of re-  istrictions against fresh immigration  into this country, and. the continuation of the ruling that all new settlers must show $250 in cash an3  their railwav fare to their destination before being admitted into tha  Dominion,   these   new   settlers   con-  5':inue to arrive in large and increas*  ne numbers.
