Vol. 14, No. 22, Whole No. C98  Thursday, Sept. 8, 1921  Subscription $3   per year  Armstrong-Spallumcheen  Consolidated School Opening  There was a very large attendance  at the formal opening of the Armstrong and Sppllumcheen consolidated  school on Tuesday of tbis week, when  Dr. McLean, minister of education;  Dr. MacDonald, member for the North  Okanagan; Mr. Mackelvie, federal  member for Yale, wero the .princ'pal  speakers of the aftrnoon.  Luncheon was served in thc assembly hall of the school. This was followed in the open, whore the school  children ancl visiting hundreds of  spectators, were massed, by orchestral  music and singing, "O Canada," led  by  tho girls  and boys.  J. M. Wright, chairman of the consolidated school board, then gave a  , brief history of the trials and tribulations leading up to the erection of the  handsome school building, the opening of which was now being observed;  told' of the able assistance;, given by  the people generally, ancl by Dr. MacDonald and Dr. McLean in particular.  Speaking for the school board, he said  thoy fully recognized the magnitude  of the work undertaken,-and realized  that the.v would encounter difficulties  which would require the best effort  and co-operation, and the patient endurance of parents and school board,  but he felt sure tihat after they had  succeeded in once establishing themselves under tho .consolidated school  system, thoy would appreciate what a  benefit tho change from the old order  to the ne,\y had been. Under these  circumstances he felt secure in the  belief that the school board and the  teaching staff would be given tlie patient support of' the parents "of the  children and by the public.  Dr. IC C. MacDonald expressed his  appreciation of -the splendid work of  thcVchool aboard and of the progressive spirit of the ratepayers of the  district, ancl complimentd all on having such'a fine school building now in  .readiness for school opening. He was  - glad to have bcen of service in securing from thc department the co-operation which had made the building  possible.  Mv. MacKelvie expressed pleasure  'at being present at thc opening of the  ���������������������������school. Thirty-five years ago-he first  drove into the Okanagan. He felt then  that he had found the choicest district in the best Province in. the Dominion, and his recent visits to other  provinces in tho Ease have more than  convinced him of tho soundness of  his choice. It was a pleasure, indeed,  to see such a building as this erected  for the education of tho boys and  girls who soon must take up the work  _ carried- on. by���������������������������some of __us__who _must  spirit shown by the people of Armstrong and the Spallumcheen in taking the initiative in the erection of  the school, and said he believed 'the  practical working out of the consolidated school system soon would  prove the wisdom of the undertaking  if parents ancl children, and the peo-  XXXXi   txxxxxxxxxx  X EN  ������������������ERBY   BRIEFS X  it X X X .

He thought when he  lisLened to the remarks of Mr. Wright  that lie modestly refrained from taking credit to himself for the work he  hud clone "'n connection with tho initial  steps which ' made the building possible, and he complimented the  school board, the ratepayers, ancl tho  Department of ratepayers on the  successful culmination of their streiK  nous effort.  School Inspector Lord spoke a few  words by way of encouragement and  in recognition of what may be expected tinder the new system. This,  he said, was the first consolidated  school, established in the Province.  Other districts were partly working  under the system, but none outright,  ancl as much of the preliminary work  in getting the school established and  under smooth working conditions  would necessarily be experimental,,  he asked the support of all. Particularly in the matter of the standing  of children from the country schools  he said some might find themselves  put back a grade because of their inability to handle the work in the city  school. This he said was not the  fault of the child, but rather of the  system they had been training under  and would quickly right itself.  Dr.  McLean, minister of education,  took up the matter  of education  in  -its    general    application;     expressed  his   appreciation   of   bhe   progressive  MARA ITEMS X  XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX  Jim Dale was visiting his brother,  Roger, on Sunday.

Spence, the  past week.  The opening of Fortune School on  Tuesday was marked by the usual  animation on the part of the scholars  as they found their new places line  and classroom. The teaching staff  gives every promise of being as efficient if not more efficient than ever  before* and the term starts out well.  Miss Beatty continues as principal  of the public school, and she is assisted by Miss Morley, Miss Ferguson  and Miss Inkman, who comes from  Agassiz, highly recommended. The  high school is in charge of Mr. Keat-  ley, from Port Hammond, whose  ability as a teacher is highly spoken  of, and who already has won the good  will of the high school class, which  is much larger this year than last.  of Hamilton here,- having arrived  a week ago. Mr. and Mrs. Smart  made many wa;m friends in Enderby  who will wish them success in their  new field.  r The registration of parcel -post  will be discontinued on the 1st "of  October, and an insurance of parcel  post will be introduced, whereby par-  eels posted in Canada for delivery  within Canada, which conform to  Parcel Post regulations, may be accepted for insurance up to $100  against loss, rifling or damage while  in-Hhe^custody-ofc-the^Ganadian^Postal Service.  Some kind friend helped himself to  early corn from the demonstration  school garden a week or two ago,  making a clean sweep, and when Mr.  Munroe came up some days ago to  compile information as to the filling  of the ears, he found only one ear  of corn left. Thus the whole season's  experimental work of the agricultural  class relating to corn, was lost.  Mayor Barnes and Alderman Gaylord returned from the Coast on Wednesday. They attended the convention of the Good Roads League and  tho" Union of B. C. Municipalities, and  report having enjoyed a very interesting session of both organizations.  From Vancouver they also took a run  over to Blaine to attend the Peace  Arch dedication ceremony on Tuesday. It is estimated that fully 5000  people were gathered before the  massive portal erected at the boundary line, and stood in the rain and  cheered the speakers who gave utterance to patriotic and neighborly  sentiments concerning the happy relations existing between the Domin-  on and the Republic.

Mr. Ivens  was given a  sympathetic     hearing,     and     proved  himself a master in the art of oratory  in his clearness of thought, his fairness   in   argument  and   soberness   of  mind   and   expression.     To   brand   a  man  of Ivens'  type and  character a  Bolshevik,  an  anarchist,  a  traitor to  the state, as he was branded even by  men  high  in  authority  in  Canada at  the  time of  the .Winnipeg  strike,  is  the essence of folly and worse, it is  criminal.  In his Enderby address Rev. Ivens  explained  how  he  became, interested  in the   labor   troubles   in"  Winnipeg.  As   pastor   of  one   of   the   Methodist  churches of that city, he worked with  the families of laboring men, and he  saw  the  suffering  when  living costs  started to climtp up and the wages of  laboringmen    stayed    down.    Figures  were   produced   to   show   that   while  government  records  proved   the  cost  of living had advanced S3 per cent at  the time of the strike, and the average wage scale in other parts of the  Dominion  then had  increased  50 - per  cent,  the  advance  asked   for  by the  men  of Winnipeg meant an increase  of only 18 per cent.    The reasonableness of the .demand of labor and the  utter impossibility of their getting a  hearing _  from     the    Winnipeg    employers,  forced" him   to  take  up  the  defense  of the _ men and  to use" his  best efforts in their behalf.'They had  worked for ten .weeks to"bring about  a  settlement  before calling a  strike, The  Hillcrest  school,  which  was  re-  ancl when it was called it was called j centiy undertaken,   will   be   ready  to  as a strike for increased wages, and be opened on the 15th:    It is a well--  was not intended by any conceivable  DUt.t  structure, -28x36 " over ' all,  with  interpretation of., the word as a'revo-Ja'  school   room   28x28.

Rev. Ivens recited briefly the facts  brought out in the trial of the men  accused with himself; told how  Harry Blask, alias Zaneth, an Italian,  then in the employ of the police, and  as agent of the government, had  bought up the worst of "red" litera  ture he couhl filicl anywhere, ahcl7  working for the police amongst the  laboringmen, he distributed this 'red'  literature wherever he could, making  note of the houses where copies were  left by him, then, when the time arrived for the police to make the raids  Zaneth led them to the houses where  "red" literature was to be found. It  was by such methods as these, said  Rev. Ivens, that a case was finally  built up against the accused men,  ancl their conviction secured. But,  said he, while a jury of twelve men  had sent the accused men to prison,  within a year twelve thousand voters  of Manitoba elected them, while still  in prison, to represent them as members of the Legislature, and when the  men had served their terms of imprisonment they went from their  prison cells to the legislative hall  and took the oath of office.  It was! particularly noticeable in  all of the remarks of Rey. Ivens, that  while he showed the marks of a man  who had suffered deep sorrow, yet  there was no mark in anything the  man said that the sting of injustice  had left a scar. He had kept sweet  throughout the ordeal, and, today,  speaks as one having suffered long  but is kind.  Rev. Ivens explained the purpose  of his trip t0 the West, by telling in  as few words as possible, how the  home had   been   broken   by   the loss  action to  pay the cost of the phone  to him for a whole year.

Municipalities at Port Alberni lasl  week, llie revenues of the Province were less  lhan six millions of dollars for all purposes. Increased taxation in many forms by llie present  government, he said, brought this revenue up lo  SI5.219,000 Jast year. This is an enormous increase in revenues by taxation. It would bc. to  thc credit of Premier Oliver and his ministers if  something "was being done with Hie revenues al  all compatible with the increase, bul what are  the facts'?1  Quoting the Premier again, wc find the goy-  eriimenl noL onlv spent everv dollar of thc $15,-  000,000, mil $5,000,000 additional���������������������������twenty millions, Iwo hundred and nineteen thousand, in'a'i.  As very lillle road or bridge work was (lone,  and not'a" great deal in any oilier direction in the  way of public work, lhc question arises, "where  did"lhc money go?" Where is it going today?  Certainly not in road or olher work.  Taking ollicial records again, we find in lhc  lasl budget speech of lhc Minister of Finance,  that about 17 per cent of last year's revenue went  on salaries lo civil servants. This is a high per  cenlage and each year is becoming higher. While  revenues show a big increase through., excessive  taxation, expenditures* arc increasing far "more  rapidly���������������������������too rapidly for sound business methods.  Although Premier Oliver addressed the .convention for morc than an hour, he made no direct reply lo fhe demand for. a government declaration of policy relative lo building lhe Iraris-  provincial highway link from lhe coast to- the  Interior- 13y special permission, Mavor Gale submitted thc Good Roads League resolution calling  lor a declaration of policy and expressing sore  disappointment because of inaction. Mayor Gale  said lhat if the government would lloat bonds to  cover the cosl the municipalities would undertake lo handle.them successfully and thus finance  the work. It would afford relief for thc unemployed and fill B. C.'s worst need, that of road  connection with the Prairies and lhe East. Thc  Premier made no reply, except lo slate to' the  -convenlion lhc condition of Jhe provincial finances, bul, turning to Mayor Gale, he said, "Can  you gel any comfort oul of lhat for your higir  wav. Mr. Gale?"  An Issue that Never Dies  Premier Meighen has definitely announced  that there will be a federal election within ninety  days. He also slates what the issue in the campaign shall be. He will go to thc country on thc  tariff issue���������������������������says a revision of the tariff is long  overdue.        , c  On this point all Canadians will agree with  Premier Meighen*���������������������������a revision of lhe tariff is long  overdue. Many will ask, why hasn't the revision  becn 'made? Wc havc heard a lot about tariff  revision from the Union Government���������������������������it has  been talked about, and used in political campaigns, but���������������������������lhat is all. The people patiently  have bcen looking   for   thc   promised'  tariff re  vision, but it has nol come, and now  used in anolher political campaign!  il is to be  Fhere is a  question of serious doubt if, a I lhis late dale,  Premier Mcighcn will succeed in "getting by"  with it. ^  Facts arc facts, and wc in Canada havc come  to realize lhat the tariff issue has become purely  a 'political question. Heretofore, wc havc done  i.s played in the United Slates. Jn 1911, Senator  Bcvcridgc told how the tariff game is played  lhere. What is true of the Uniled Slates is as  true of Canada, as regards the nursing of this  hardy perennial political plant:  "The next great business reform we must have  to steadily increase American prosperity," said  lie. "is to change, thc method of building our  tarffs. The tariff0must bc taken out of politics  and treated as a business question instead of as  a political game, played here much lhe same.as it  just the olher thing. That is why American  business is upset every few ycars by unnecessary  tariff upheavals and is weakened by uncertainty  in thc periods between. Thc greatest need���������������������������__of  business is certainty; but the only thing certain  about our tariff is uncertainty. What, then, shall  wc do lo make our tariff changes strengthen  business instead of weakening business? Rival  protective tariff nalions havc answered that  question. Common sense has answered it. Ncxt  lo our need lo make the tariff law modern, un"  derslaudable and just, our greatest fiscal need' is  a genuine, permanent, non-partisan tariff commission. ... Thcrc has not been and will not  be any sincere and honest effort by the old par-  tics to get a tariff commission: There has nol  been and will not bc any sincere and honest purpose by, those parlies lo take the tariff out of  polities'. For. the tariff is thc excuse for those  sham battles which give ihe spoilers their oppor-  lunily The tariff in politics is one of the invisible government's methods of -wringing tribute  from the people. Through thc. tariff in politics  Ihc beneficiaries of tariff excesses arc cared for.  no  matter which   parly is  doing  the  'revising-'  "Who has forgotten the tariff scandals lhal  made President Cleveland denounce the Wilson-  Gorman bill as 'a perfidy and a dishonor?' Who  ever can forget the brazen robberies forced into  thc Payne-Aldrich bill which Mr. Taft defended  as 'the best ever made?' If everyone else forgets  these things lhc interests that profiled by Ihem  never will forget them.. Thc bosses and lobbyists  lhal grew rich by pulling them Ihrough never  will forget them.

That person was President 'Loutet,  of Ihe Union of Ii. C. Municipalities, who replied  to lhe Premier's use of Hie.big stick oii the delegates.

He  thought il was a case of the tail wagging the dog.  Me regretted that lhe Legislature had to take two  mon I lis of the session lo tell thc people how to  got Iheir liquor, whil" larger problems were at  slake. The municipalities had practiced economy, culling out all expenditures except those  on schools, which could not be cut by provincial  law. Despite Ihis liie government was building  beautiful brick and stone monuments while,  frame schools had lo do.

Registered    Physician   ?and   Surgeon  throughout  the  British  Empire  Office in BeM  Block, Enderby  Having once adopted the North Dakota principle that farming is a business and that the farmer must be a  businessman the United States Government is progressing faster than  pioneers in farming business reforms,  and is making effectual provision for  affording every business facilities to  farmers.  These business facilities .comprise  not only credits covering the period  of sowing and reaping crops, but also  a sufficient further credit term to enable a gradual or postponed selling of  produce so as to gain favorable market conditions,  ancl  also  multiple  in-  x,  surance; that is to say insurance  against defaults in payment as well  as against fire, flood, tempest and  other calamities. The measure now  before Congress ancl the reasons for  its enactment are officially explained  from Washington as follows:  "Tho McFadden-Kenyon bill represents a searching investigation of the  question of rural 'credits, over a period of years, by men who have made  themselves authorities on that subject. They believe that thhe pending bill, which ,has bcen brought to  perfection slowly, as the investigation  proceeded, is bomb-proof. It meets  every need, they say, and every argument that can be made against the  new credit principle it would set up.  They predict that it will ,quiet unrest on the farms, which has been  increasing since the end of the war,  ancl has been especially acute for  more tjian a year, ancl at the same  time will be an accomplishment of  which any national administration  might well be proud.  "The McFadden-Kenyon bill purposes to create two corporations, a rural credit society and a "central bank.  The latter will have 4S branches, one  in each state, and there will be a  large number of community associations com_lbsed of farmers. The bill  will also provide for a multiple insurance league. Both corporation^ will  .have federal charters, each separate  from the other."  "The multiple insurance charter is  referred to as being broad and liberal,  authorizing the corporation to insure  against any contingency, as is" provided by the charters of the British insurance companies, some of which  have been in existence for more than  200 years. Incidentally, it may be of  interest to note that the McFadden-  Kenyon bill has been drafted in the  light of the experience that not only  England, but France and Germany  have   had   with   rural   credits, an ex  perience,   by  the   way, that has been  uniformly satisfactory."  "One of the unique features of the  bill is that it looks to' securing one of  the big life insurance companies, with  headquarters in New York City, as  an instrument in the carrying out of  the plan that has been evolved. The  company is to accept the government's multiple insurance charter,  surrendering the charter it now has,  and become the "acceptance house,"  or credit insurance company of the  rural credit system. A good many*  months ago the plan was laid before  its officers, who tentatively agreed, to  adopt it  "There "s nothing novel in the idea  of offering cheap nmltiple insurance  to the members of a credit society,  so as to enable them to furnish as  good security for credits as the wealthiest farmers. That as I have said,  has been the practice of Europe for  many generations and has placed agriculture there on a substantial basis.  The tenant farmer in Europe, however, is not required to, furnish an in-  dorser; in the United States he is.  That is why the American farmer Is  not as prosperous and as contented  as the farmer - of Europe. And besides, the furnishing of an indorser  on farm paper, is a protection to the  seller and not to the farmer, for if  the credit is for the purchase of a  cow, and it dies, the farmer will owe  the debt and have no cow; whereas,  if he takes cattle insurance on the  cow, the debt would be cancelled and  the way opened for him to purchase  another cow.  "The novelty of the plan consists  in the use of a great life insurance  company as well as a multiple insurance company. This is the British  commercial credit system over again,  which uses an "acceptance house"  which is nothing more no,less than a  credit insurance- company. These  "acceptance houses" in England.-, are  the outgrowth *of the old British mercantile importing firms," which, in the  course of their ,v trade, .established  credit in all important world market. Merchants of second-rate  found that by paying small commission to the acceptance house for the  use of a more exalted .name than  tlieir own they could place their bills,  of exchange on the open market,  where they would command the lowest possible discount rates. In this  way the British bill of exhange became standardized and performed  every funtion of currency.  In speaking of the cut-over on the  "opening night" celebrated at Vernon  last week, Superintendent Godfrey  said he could but repeat the words  of Mr. Williamson of the Northern  electric Company, who has had over  sixteen years experience making final  inspection of such installations, he  having stated that never in his experience had he seen a cut-over  pass off so smoothly without a single  line trouble ' and but a minimum  swithchboard   troubles   showing.  "In mentioning trouble,'-' said Mr.  Godfrey, "I do not wish our subscribers to think ^their troubles or our  troubles are over, as many of the  present instruments are not adapted  for this service and will be the cause  of a certain amount of trouble until  final adjustments are made. It .is  jtho Company's intention to replace  all instruments in the city but this  takes time and we must ask the indulgence of the telephone using public rftitil we can get all our new equipment and complete our programme.",  "Since the 1st of January, 1920,  when our Company decided to use  every means in its power to meet the  growing   demand   for   telephone   ser  vices in" the valley, we have spent  well over $100,000 in extending our  system, improving our toll line service and installing the new switchboard in Vernon.  "I might analyze these figures a little for you so that you could enlarge  in detail on the total amount. The  amount expended in extending our  system is approximately $60,000, improvements to our toll line amount to  $7,000, and new building in Vernon  approximately $12,000. The new  switchboard and cost of installation  will alone cost the Company $25,000.  . "In 1920 we had an increase in the  number of subscribers equal to almost 20'per cent, and this year the  number should be increased by  even a greater percentage as soon as"  our Vernon switchboard is installed  and we have tho capacity for carrying  a  furttfer  load."  Increase   in   Wheat   Production  v Canada's wheat crop this year is estimated at 28S,493,600 bushels, based  on conditions of July 31, aginst 263,-  189,300 bushels last year, according  to the Dominion Bureau of Statistics.  Other estimates are: oats, 457,544,-  000 bushels; barley;, - 58,027,000 bus-~  hels; rye, 11,707,100 bushels; flax  seed, 6,930,000 bushels and potatoes  99,937,000 bushels.

There are several-excellent beaches for bathing, there  ere  half a  dozen  different  lots  of  Eubhc tennis-courts within the city  mils; there are several golf-courses,  baseball and lacrosse, a polo-ground  out at Brighouse Park where re-  eently the Vancouver team plaved  teams from Kamloops and Calgary.  Saturday afternoon nearly always  finds a couple of cricket matches being played at the beautiful grounds  down at Brockton Point.  But the most . popular of all  amusements in Vancouver are motor-  launching and yachting. The harbor down by the Yacht-club is dotted  ���������������������������with pleasure boats" of every size  and build; motorrpower boats from  the little row-boat with an outboard  motor fixod inside it right up the  scale to jhe beautiful new launch  from Seattle, 110 ft, built originally  for a submarine chaser.  All the sailing boats turn out for  the regattas held at various points  along the toast. There are Iff "kitten," 15 feet boats of the "Cat boat"  class, the "Sir Tom" and the "Spirit"  Of the "&" class, th* "Minerva," a  Independence on a Fruit Farm  (1) The Vancouver Polo Team  at Brighouse Park.  f2) Sailing in Vancouver Harbor.  60 ft. yawl, the "Patricia." built  specially for the Lipton Cup between  Vancouver and Seattle, ana the only  boat on the Pacific Coast that has  the Marconi rig.  But these are only a few of the  hundreds of boats that dot the blue  waters of Burrard Inlet or the more  adventurous seas outside on a summer's afternoon.  fn the heart of tht ww,,ttH���������������������������  country on the north aid* of tht  Fraser River in Britjsh Columbia,  where every landowner b������������������s bis commercial patch of raspberries, small  or large, one of. the best examples  of wh*t a perfectly developed, well-  run fruit farm on a small acreage  can be, is the Maple Crest Farm at  Hatzic belonging to Mr. A. P. Pann.  Ivxr. Pann is an Old Coijntry gardener, 'and was brought up on his  father's fruit farm of 200 acres in  Kent; as the conditions for fruitgrowing are much the same in Brit-  =ish=-Golumbia=as^in=Englandfihis~ex^  perience is his greatest asset out  here. He believes that there is far  more profit in the careful and thorough cultivation of the small patch  than in the big patch carelessly looked after.  The soil in this district is naturally  rich, well-drained and therefore particularly well-adapted for small fruit  but Mr. Pann uses farm-yard manure when possible and plenty of  chemical fertilizers as well.  He has an acre in strawberries,  the "Magoon" variety, which are  best suited to the district, and in a  good year realizes $1,200 on these;  half of this must be allowed for expenses of picking, packing, crating,  cartage, etc., so that he clears a  profit of $600.  He has. over an acre of gooseberries, mostly grown from cuttings  which he struck himself, "Pearl"  which are th'e earliest, VOregon  Champion," the main crop and "Joce-  lyn," the late ones.' There are 1,100  bushes in full bearing which average a gross return of $1 per bush,  more than half of which is clear  profit.  Gooseberries, of course, are far  cheaper to grow than strawberries  because like all bush fruit they last  for a long term of years without  needing renewal.  Mr. Pann has over an acre of raspberries, "Cuthbferts" and an unknown  variety much grown in the district  that surpasses even the "Cuthberts"  for earliness and heavy yields. Three  tons to the acre is an average crop  or 300 crates for which the lowest  price is $4 per crate, so it will be  seen that the profits work out much  the same as for straws, and rasps.,  j ii.- 13,_*P. wre of loganberftei  and though these do not bring ia  such good prices as rasps, the crop  ���������������������������asts\ much longer and pickers can  picjc double the amount in a day. so  tht profits work out the same.  Logan growers are Very anxious tfl  see a plant for bottling logan-juicf  started in the Province and we hops  this.will come ere long.  Over tn acre of "Tbornless" blackberries are grown as these are considered better than "Snyder" which  are too seedy or "Evergreen" which  are too late. Tbey do not bring in  such^goodprices-as-the^other^fruitF"  but the crop is heavier, lasts longer  and the expenses are less, so that a  good $600 is cleared on these also.  There are about one and a quarter  acres of red and black currants,1  some of the red currant bushes  .eaching the prodigious Bize of 9 ft.1  in diameter and producing over 2J>  lbs. of fruit. These bring in a gross1  return of $700-$800 per acre.  Mr. Pann has also fifty Boussock  pear trees which invariably yield a  good crop and are a variety particularly free from disease. Tbil  district has learnt the imperative  necessity of co-operation in handling  their fruit. The area of production'  has assumed such vast proportions  in the last few years that unless the  produce had been handled on business lines nothing short of disaster  could have occurred, both for the  individual and for this industry ir.  the Province.  Cold storage facilities are absolutely necessary and the expense of  this can only be met by every grower joining the exchange in his district. Lasi year the Hatzic Fruit  and Mercantile Exchange shipped  six "carloads of rasps to Winnipeg  and not one crate was spoilt.  A traveller from the East told Mr,-  Dann^that he saw several crates of.  rasps from the Hatzic district last  summer in Port William and they  were all in perfect shape.  This year the Exchange expects lo*  ship over BOO cars of fruit and ch<r  strawberry yield alone is. expected to  total from 800-1000 tons. There are  about 2,800 acres in British Columbia under small fruit and the value  of last year's crop was approxi*  mately a million dollars.���������������������������H.

C. Muna^ip'alities  gave voice to severe criticism of the  government at Victoria.  Mayor Johnston of New Westminster was authority for the statement  that -information had becn received  that thc government had indicated it  did not desire to discuss further any  questions of assistance to the municipalities in a financial way.  - "If this is true, what's the use of  our meeting annually and continuing  our endeavor?" he asked. "We might  as well. disband as a municipalities  union and be done with it. Only a  rank partisan could feel otherwise in  view of the treatment we have received  in recent years."  Councillor Jack Loutet,- president  of the Union of B. C. Municipalities,  was a little more optimistic, incidentally Indicating a political eventuality  which he predicted would follow  should government indifferences continue.  "I do not desire to launch upon any  line of severe criticism," he said, "because it may be that the government  will, at a special session of Legisla*  turo. take action to. show that the crying needs of municipalities have not  been  entirely disregarded.  "Let me be very positive in one  statement, however. If my expectations are not realized, and if it is  found that nothing is done to relieve  municipal burdens. I predict'in all sin-,  cerity that the birth of a new political party will bo celebrated and that  It will be known as the Municipal  Party." '    ^* '  "I don't want to say too much  about this at the present time, but I  do know that the endurance limit is  ahout reached and. the fall session  will be the testing point."  That thc president of the union was  not voicing his individual opinions  and predictions regarding the birth of  a new political party was plainly indicated-when, in informal discussions  several members indicated their  knowledge  of the  plan  proposed.  Mayor  Johnston  spoke  very  planly  upon    "the    usolessness    of    meeting  often   and   getting  nowhere,"   both  in  corridor   and   convention   discussion.
