Vol.  14,  No.  25, Whole No.  709.  Thursday, November 24, 1921  Subscription $3   per yearr  Practical Scheme to Develop  Shuswap Falls Hydropower  A few weeks ago, when the proposition was before the Vernon City  Council looking to-, that city taking  light and power "juice" from the Bon-  nington Falls plant, several of the  aldermen opposed the project on the  ground that it would be better to develop the unlimited power known to  be available at Shuswap Falls, and  eventually the Council decided to turn  down the Bonnington Falls proposition and to cooperate with other businessmen with the object of going fully  into the Shuswap Falls project to discover the feasibility of its - development. How far this investigation has  gone, or when it is to be made has not  beeen stated, but the project is so  commendable that it would appear  most important that greater publicity  be "given it, with the object of interesting every town and village in the  Valley.  The light and power problem is one  that is of vital interest to every town  -and community, centre from Kelowna  north.    Vernon,  Armstrong,  Enderby,  Salmon   Arm   and   every   community  - centre along the way, is faced by the  vital need of finding _ome solution of  the light and power problem. In the  cities and towns named already are  established light and power plants, all  ' of them more or less inefllcient and  costly to operate, _jvhile at Shuswap  Falls water power Is running to waste  capable of furnishing at nominal cost  all the light and "power "juice" that  would   be   required   in' this   glorious  _ _ Okanagan Valley in a thousand years.  - How can this power be harnessed?  ' How can it'be made to serve "every  community and to supply "juice"' for,  -" manufacturing purposes and for light  ^artT'|fe^'^8fe'?^v^-'w~i^v-*''-,,,5"*'7"'*'  Vernon cannot bear the initial cost  . of installing a plant large enough to  supply the1, district named. Nor can'  any other town do so. Neither is it  likely that a privately-owned company  could be induced to launch the project.  And yet, all will agree it should be  launched-  Here is an idea.  Will our progressive and Influential  contemporaries take it up and give it  publicity in the hope that it might  lead to something tangible?  Why not Incorporate the North  Okanagan into one county as has been  done elsewhere for hydro-electric development, and issue bonds on the  credit of the combined territory, thus  raising the necessary capital to establish the plant and install a system  covering the whole territory?  Thus each of the towns named and  all the .territory between would be let  In on the great scheme and we should  have something in perpetuity which  would not mean paying tribute for all  time to a privately-owned corporation  operating at a fat profit.  Such a project has proven feasible  and profitable In other parts of Canada.    Why not here?  Surely there is no part of the Dominion more favored by Nature than  the Okanagan.  Certainly there could not be found  anywhere such tremendous water-  power so easily harnessed as that at  Shuswap Falls.  It would be to our everlasting  shame if we as a district should permit, this natural storehouse of power  to be alienated and become a source  of tremendous profit to private capital.  It is the people's right to own and  make use of this Godsend of Nature.  The time has come when the various towns of the Okanagan must get  tog-ther in one big-hearted common  brotherhood. We should work hand-  in-hand, to develop every part of the  Valley. r  ���������������������������a And there is nothing that would ap-  ���������������������������ptial^t5';-the'get-together-spirit' in- each  and all as this <hydro-electric project.  It would mean everything to the  Okanagan���������������������������millions of dollars Jf expressed in ;dollars and cents.  Why not get together on the .proposition?   - ..        >  Why not call a conference of the  mayors and reeves and prominent  businessmen of air localities and seek  to find a basis of county incorporation  for hydro-electric purposes?  AGRICULTURAL   HALL  Committee   Names  Officers  and   Proceeds with Erection of Building  On Nov. 17th. the committee of  seven named by the shareholders In  the Enderby Rink & Agricultural Hall  Ltd., met to name officers and proceed  with the  erection of the hall to be  used for rink and agricultural "show  purposes.  The officers named were: H. W.  Keith, president; H. M. Walker, vice-  president; G. H. Smedley, secretary-  treasurer.  Jt was decided that all moneys paid  in should be deposited in a trust fund  in the Bank of Hamilton, - subject,  when incorporation is completed, to  check signed by president and secretary treasurer.  The secretary was empowered to  issue call for the immediate payment  of all moneys subscribed for shares.  All requisitions for material in connection with the building were ordered to be obtained through E. J.  Mack acting for the committee.  Work on laying the cement abutt-  ments was undertaken this week.  These are now In and work on the  structural timbers is now In hand, J.  N. Grant being in charge or the construction.  At the meeting of the Board of  Trade held on Monday evening the  old question of having lights on rigs  came up for discussion and it is likely  a delegation from the Board will wait  on the council a* an early date asking  that a bylaw be passed to that effect  for Mission municipality. It is understood that it is effective in many of  the municipalities of the Fraser Valley.���������������������������Mission''City-' Record.

CADET DANCE A SUCCESS  The high school cadets and their  leader, and all friends assisting in  the dance given in the Enderby Opera  House last Friday evening are to be  congratulated on the success of the  affair.. The floor was crowded, there  being more people on the floor from  Vernon and Armstrong than from Enderby. The Vernon orchestra supplied the best of music and Mr. Keat-  ley, as cadet master, handled the affair most pleasingly.  Aimin? to __ive ���������������������������.atlsf action to all,  no expense was spared In connection  with the dance, not only in getting  the best possible music, but also in  hall decorations, refreshments, etc.,  all of which won the admiration of  those attending. Local businessmen  who supplied anything in connection  with the affair, gave the boys a liberal  discount, with the result that, after  all expenses were paid they had a  surplus of $47 to use in connection  with the cadet club.

Howsomever, it isn't ditty composers we want at Ottawa just now.  Thirty-five boxes, of Mcintosh Red  apples were packed1 from one tree in  an orchard at Vernon this season, In  addition to eight bags of windfalls.  The tree is fourteen years old, and  from one hundred trees in the same  orchard 1,700 boxes of apples were  picked.  Eighteen carloads of Jonathan apples, packed in ** suitable cases," constitute the first shipment of apples  from British - Columbia to Glasgow,  Scotland, this year. They were loaded  on the Royal Mail, steamer "Moliere,"  and will sail' for Scotland by way of  the Panama Canal.-. ~  ��������������������������� fThe:.'twoJor-" th1fe'e'>days' of.; cold  weather last week-end put several  long-distance telephone lines out of  commission.

The Enderby Local, U. F. B. C, held  a social business meeting last Thursday evening in Farmers' Hall to which  many member's of neighboring Locals  came. The evening was profitably  and enjoyably spent in social conversation, business suggestions and round  table talks, with games" and refreshments  interspersing.  A meeting of the ladles of Grindrod  was called for Wednesday last, at  which the rector presided. It was decided to organize "St. Paul's Guild,"  and the following officers were  "elected r^MrsT^Campbellr^presr^Mrsr  Pritchard, vlce-pres.; Mrs. Hancock,  sec; Mrs. E. J. Emeny, treas.; Mrs. L.

Davies, of Vancouver,  speak on the political issues of the  day in the interest of the Meighen  party. The audience was not large,  but the interest was Intense, If not  lugubrious. We confess our Inability  to measure woman's interest in politics. It may not be what it seems and  it may be more than.it seems. However, if good listeners make faithful  learners, women In politics are learning and are preparing to be heard  from.  Mrs. Davies gave an intensely vivid  description of the work women did in  England during the trying days of the  war. It was by their .heriosm there  that they won the franchise. And having won it so dearly, she urged her  hearers to' make good use of it In Its  exercise.  She reviewed the war' record of  McKenzie King the Liberal leader and  compared It with that of Sir Robert  Borden and his successor, Hon..  Arthur Meighen, and urged her hearers to cast their vote for Mr. MacKelvie, the representative of the Meighen  government in this riding.  Dr. Baker Suspended to Wait  Result of Official Investigation  Some days ago, MrJ Pooley, In the  Provincial Legislature,- charged Dr.  Baker, chairman of the Game Conservation Board, as follows:  I charge _ Baker with the use of  government motor cars and launches  for his own personal needs and requirements.

On the 18th Dr. Baker was suspended from office, Attorney-General  Farris announced. Inspector Bird of  the same department Is also suspended.  The attorney-general added that  Magistrate Shaw of Vancouver has  been selected as commissioner to  hear, the charges preferred in the  Legislature against Dr. Baker.  By the narrow majority of two, the  vote beingi-22 to 20,.the Farris amend-"  ment to the Pooley resolution asking  for the appointment of a select com- -.  mittee of members of the Legislature  to  investigate  Dr. A.  R.  Baker's as-  ";  sociatlons  with  the  'Game  Conservation Board and the movlng-plcture de-   '  partment passed in the Legislature. -  .;_ Therefore    the    investigation'..will.. V  take the form' of a royal commission ���������������������������  of one or more judges, to.be held after,'  the session is concluded.   Mr. Bowser 7  warned   before   th\0 vote .. was   taken r>  that-his party would wash.their,hands-"  of the whole affair; if' a '^select com-^  .  mittee was not appointed, while the   ���������������������������  mover of the resolution, Mr. Pooley, -  said his "brief" would not be opened  again. He did not propose t0 spend his  time -between   sessions - in   attending,  the  sittings  of a  commission,  wheii  the-people of the province  expected....  their   elected   representatives   to   attend- to  all  such   matters   while  the-  Legislature was in session.      -  MRS.  SMITH   RESIGNS  No   Longer   Content  to   Sit   as   Wall  plower in Oliver Cabinet  In the Legislature Monday afternoon, Premier Oliver announced that  he had received Mrs. Smith's resignation from the cabinet. He had notified His Honor -the Lieut.-Governor  of^the-factf^The^resignatlon^had^as1  yet not been  accepted.  Following is the text of Mrs.  Smith's letter to the Premier:  "Legislative Assembly, Victoria, B.  C, Nov. 19, 1921,  "Dear Mr. Premier:  "I herewith tender my resignation  as a member of the Executive Council and minister w'ithout portfolio.  For some time I have felt"," as you  know, that I should take this course,  and I have been in the unfortunate  position of having to assume the responsibility of the acts of the government without being in a position to  criticise or advise.  "As a member of the council I have  been precluded from criticism and  that is perhaps a good thing in one's  constituency. Any other reasons I  can give in due course. ���������������������������  "I am, after all, primarily interested  in women and children, and no matter what government has the power,  as long as 1 can serve the people who  I have the honor to represent, then I  shall find the happiness that public  life gives.  "Public gratitude is not a virtue  we boast of, but there Is always the  satisfaction of having rendered service."'  "Believe me to be, yours most sincerely,  ' MARY E. SMITH.  Don't kick about your home town;  the other fellow's might be worse.  CRYSTAL PALACE WINNERS.  Seventeen Medals Won by p. C.

'Go and Get It'  Thursday, November 24, 1921  Petty Patriotism  Nothing will 'so quickly and completely stultify  Vhe development of a community a.s tlie spirit of  petty  patriotism.     By   this,  we  mean   the   pin-  headed flag-waving so frccfiien lly seen in small  Ih these four words is summed up all there is  to be said in explanation of the secret of success.  Success in anything is -nothing more than  "getting" what you go after. r Whether it be a  little thing or a big tiling; the common every-dav  thing, or the thing of greater importance, it is all  thc same, Thc really big thing lhat eventually  counts is the "getting" of Ihe thing you go afler.  In Dominion Cily, Man., thcy"have what is  called a Community Association. And it seems  that Dominion Cily is somewhat like Colonel R.  T. Lowery once said of Enderby, "a village with  city airs." And, again like Enderby, thc citizens  of Dominion City and district have need of a rink  and agricultural hall, and, according to thc Echo,  ihc local paper, thc Community Association has  ESTABLISHED 1872  JS.&  ki������������������WMMim\  I  7_*n  WltittipEO  OFFlCg  If the average man would keep a  detailed expense account for a month  showing every trifling expenditure, he  would find that, without missing anything worth while, he, could have  made some very good deposits in the  bank���������������������������safeguards for the future-  material for business progress.  had thc question of rink-hall up for discussion on  several occasions, "which all ended in failure."  And, so, the Echo, by way of encouragement, in  a recent issue, reproduced from the columns of  places bv small people gathered together in small ^"j Commoner the report of one of our meetings  showing how, by a little united elfort, the citizens of this locality, accomplished the thing  aimed at.  What one locality can accomplish, another can  do.   And there is no limit to whal can bc accom-  pished by any locality if there is that cohesive  ���������������������������ffort by all citizens. True, in every locality, there  arc those who blindly knock anything or any individual of a progressive nature.   And the funny  part of it is, thcy arc the first lo jump into thc  ���������������������������land wagon when the thing is achieved,    lids is  one of the things that make it interesting.   It induces the knocker to alter his course and become  a y.-orkcr.   Wliich is as it should be.   But the big  thiiiir to remember lV'hal without determination  at the outset, and determination a I every obstacle  placed b\ ihe way by luke-warm  friends cf tlie  F3imposition, failure surely will be the result.  "Go and Get It" must be  the watchword all  the line.  iANK OF HAMILTON  L.  G. TYLER,  Local   Manager  ENDERBY,  bunches given over to mutual admiration and thc  ���������������������������  pooling of each other's -weaknesses so as to put  on a brave front lo camouflage ihc emptiness behind.    II kills all initiative, hobbles progress and  is the acid   lhal   transmutes   community  loyalty  ^into bubbles of selfishness.  " For ycars past Enderby has had its share of this  pin-headed loyalty always on  lap.    Fortunately,  however^ its advocates havc been in the minority.  There is "a broadness of vision that such people  do not grasp���������������������������never sense.    It is the visiion lhal  blends the Stare and Stripes and Union Jack into  onc flag of com m nil j- development and community interest, under which., while each individual  may not sec eye to eye on individual matters, yet  all  may ;-:ee wit!1, one common eye lo  the community good, and work accordingty.  The visit of Mr  week carries  Enderby.   Jn  operated  the  l\.  Rogci  managers  and  !->.  iv.  wilh it  thc sixteen yet  sawmill here,  o  something of  -.-...-..  Enderby this  bad news  to  rs the" company has  Mr. Rogers and his  avc. maintained  a  spirit of fairness  co-operation in all things wherein they could  k wilh the citizens in lhc advancement of the  {li'slricl. T!icj' have not always received the cordial response. And, on liie"part of some, there has  becn .expressed a feeling that never should have  been allow'ad lo  crow���������������������������a   feeling  of antagonism  ���������������������������  *     js ^aJ O  because the company was an American company.  Mr. Rogers mission to Enderby al tins lime is  lo decide upon the future policy of thc company.  So. far as this winler is concerned, lhere will be no,  logs cut in the Umber limits, and the saws will not  run next year. Thc 3'ards arc full of lumber now  as the result of a^ very successful season's run, and  if is the company's intention lo dispose of the  lumber stock on hand next summer, when it is  hoped better prices will prevail. When this is  done, lhe prevailing outlook of the lumber mar  ket  will   in  a  large  measure decide  thc  future  fogcrs, m common with, all lumber men,  policy of thc company.  Mr  finds h impossible to pul lumber on the market al  a profit and pay thc excessive rate for logs which  lias been' sel by thc loggers' association. It is a  loss to close down thc mill, hc says, but not so  great.a loss as running wilh the price of logs so  hiaii.  along  More Tariff Bunc  The Foster Weather Forecast  There are individuals who habitually sneer al  ihe Foster weather reports. Naturally these people get nothing out of llicsic forecasts, because  they do not wish to.Therc be others wiio have fol-  ^Im^crlV hWe^ciTt hTr^fm;eZ^fs"c"arcful l^Ho^ycars  and have learned to be guided by them. Speaking  in a larger sense, these weather forecasts have  guided shippers by sea, who never risk going contrary lo the. warnings given. And it has meant  the saving of millions of dollars annually to shippers, a.s weJi a.s the saving of hundreds of lives on  the Great Lakes alone.  fn Foster's report under date of Nov. 7th. thc  storm which has raged for the past week, and is  -general in America, was cleaily foretold.    Il may  be. interesting therefore, to read thc Foster report  under date of Nov. 19th, which says*, "the week  cenlering on Nov. X\ i.s expected to* bring a mixture of  weather events,  but  generally  the  well-  known Indian summer features will prevail. That  week wi!{ bc midway between two severe storm  periods, one centerin<r on Nov. 1-llh, the other on  Nov ,28lh, and therefore the first and last part of  lhal week may get touches of Ihesc storms.   Temperatures of thai week arc expected  to average  above..and prccipitalion above'normal.    For liie  week   centering   on Nov.   23rd.   unusually  warm  weather and no severe cold waves arc expected.  The week'centering on Nov. 28th will be under  llie influence of severe storms.   Higher temperatures will reach Western Canada and Northwestern America near Nov. 2Glh, followed by severe  storms, increasing snows or rains and a moderate  cold wave.   These conditions will cross meridian  90 near Nov. 28th, and reach eastern sections near  It would bc just as wise, and perhaps wiser, for  Ihe Canadian Manufacturers' Association to keep  outof thc limelight in connection with thc federal  election. But it is so worried over the possibility  of the present Canadian tariff being in any way  changed, that it has published a booklet on. the  benefits Canada has derived from (lie. protection  policy, and is circulating thc document throughout the Dominion.  Fact is, the people of��������������������������� Canada are not particularly pleased about the way protection has been  saddled upon Ihem. They- do nol think our  Canadian manufacturers have played lhc game  on the square. Thcy feci, and this feclin a comes  from thc knowledge of facts, that our num-ufae-  lurcrs havc taken advantage of the protective  tariff lo inflate prices and restrict competition.  The people know as well as lhc Manufacturers  tha I--whichever party wins, thc tariff will not bc  monkeyed with to any extent. Canada needs the  money. No government can exist without the  revenue the tariff brings. What thc Manufacturers most fear, wc believe, is tliat should a change  come, they may not get so favorable a line-up at  Ollawta in what may be termed lhe "inner circle"  ���������������������������the power behind thc government. Bul wc are  firmly convinced that if Meighen goes back with  an unqualified mandate froni the people "of Canada, hc will immediately institute a house-cleaning that will materially alter the "inner circle"  idea.   Let us hope so.  -We__Hav_e_,the_Raihvays._.Any.way_  Tl is easy lo blame lhc Government for the people's mistakes. That is a delightful pastime of  politicians, particularly at election time. The  olher day at Ottawa Premier Meighen said that in  1903-01 Canada "had bcen lei info as colossal, as  disastrous and as catastrophic a railway policv  as ever befell a nalion," and declared thai new-  railways had been built twenty years before lhcir  lime. All of which may he. ifue enough, bul llie  fact remains lhat thc people of Canada clamored  for the railways and got Ihem, and havc them,  with an annual deficit in the bargain, while tiie  promoters of the railways arc living in affluence  in California or Honolulu���������������������������wherc climatic conditions are less rigorous.  By-lhc-by, wc iiave a railway graded into the  Okanagan from Kamloops which will bear watching, and .which -nobody seems to care to talk  about.  v  ov. 30th. Indications of an excessively cold win  ter are not yet in sight. December will average  warmer than usual; very w'arm on the weeks centering on Dec.  1, 12 and 28;  cooler  than usual  The Shevlin Equalizer, a "shop" monthlv published by lhe employees of thc Shcvlin-Hixon  Company of Bend, Oregon, lias this bit of logic:  "A house divided against itself cannot stand.  Labor and Capital constitute the house of Industry.

District Superintendent's Office,  28th October,\1921, Vancouver, B C.  J. FVVIURRAY,  Acting District  Superintendent.  TIME   FOR   RETRENCHMENT  J. W. Jones, M. P. P. for South Okanagan. Speaks Strongly on  Need  for  Economy  "It is high time we saw some signs  of economy and retrenchment on the  part of this government," declared J.  W. Jones, Conservative member of  South Okanagan, in continuing the  budget debate in the Legislature a  few days ago. The peoplo of the  country are wondering whore the  province will end, and even the municipal representatives have gone home  declaring all negotiations off."  He said the finance mininster promised year after year to cut down expenditures, but every session saw increased grants, and this year it was  proposed, according to the estimates,  to pass votes totalling over $21,000,-  000 for next' year's financing.    He re-  _>  ferred to the borrowings of the government this year, in amount, $17,-  SS0,000, or a sum almost as great as  the entire debt of British Columbia  when the Conservative government  left office in 1916.  Mr. Jones said the present debt,  $55,000,000, was appalling, considering the population. In four years the  "spender-mania" of the administration had eaten up $102,000,000, he  said, and what had the people to show  for it? ' ,  He asked the finance minister to  make a statement as to what he proposed in the way of municipal assistance and economy, and he referred  to an editorial in the Victoria_.Times,  a paper supposed to be supporting  the government," wherein the government  was   advised   to   economise.-  The member for South Okanagan  reviewed the municipal question and  spoke of the promises which he said  had been made last session by the  Premier. The municipal representatives had gone home with the promise that a special, session would be  held. The House is now in session and  everyone knew what had happened  the municipalities, he added.   J  Mr. Jones referred < to the offers  made the... municipalities, mentioning  the half of 1 per cent levy on personal  property, liquor profits and the poll  tax.    No wonder these "were, refused.  The speaker^ then read - the statement presented to the municipal committee. Ke'was0not surprised at the  action of the delegation, since he  considered them sound business men,  who could see no hope in approaching the, government for relief. Their  obligations were so great that they  could not be expected to carry on  their administrations with the means  at present provided by government  regulations.  Mr. Jones said the municipalities  had only the revenue from land and  improvements, while the government  took the toll from corporations, the  income tax and the amusement, automobile and personal property taxes.  All these were taken away from the  municipalities by the government.  . The dry-belt representative claimed  *'The Bill will not let in Canadian wheat,  but will save to the American farmer the  right to raise a bushel of wheat instead  of transferring that right to Canada."���������������������������  Mr. Fordney, in introducing the Fordney  Emergency ^Tariff Bill which has shut  -millions of dollars worth of Canadian  foodstuffs out of the United States  market.  "If we are to build up a self-sustaining  agriculture here at home, the farmer.  must be protected from unfair competition from those countries'* where  agriculture is still being exploited."���������������������������  President Harding. The very spot chosen  to deliver this speech���������������������������Minnesota���������������������������shows  that Harding had the Canadian North-  West in mind.  WHILE ties of friendship unite Canada and the United States, the attitude of Uncle Sam  is that of "Business First", and Canada cannot and should -not hope for any consideration from the United States where the interests of the farmers and business people  of that country are involved. ,  Uncle Sam has built the Fordney Tariff directly against Canadian agriculture, and new  additional Tariff proposals are now under consideration to shut out from the United States  Canadian goods of every kind.  These measures are due to the insistence of the American farmer that the United States market shall be retained .exclusively for him and that the influx of Canadian farm products into  that country must cease. They are also due to a like insistence of United States manufacturers and workers, who have seen their country develop tremendously and grow rich under a  Protective Tariff, and who believe that a still further increase in Tariff is the only means of  assuring continued prosperity. -. ���������������������������*.  CONTRAST THE ATTITUDE OF THE UNITED STATES LEADERS WITH  THAT OF CANADA'S WOULD-BE LEADERS, CRERAR AND KING  Crerar proposes to allow American goods to  enter the Canadian market free of duty.  King proposes that the present reasonable  Tariff on the products of the American  factory and farm shall be greatly reduced,  and that the home market of the Canadian  farmer and manufacturer alike shall be  thrown open to our Southern neighbour, in  the face of the United States Emergency  tariff, which practically.shuts out Canadian,  farm products from these markets, and also  in the face of the permanent tariff now under  consideration at Washington,, which gives,  every promise of being even more' drastic  than the Emergency Tariff so far as onr  products are concerned. _    ,  tn view ofrthe attitude of the United States,  what folly it is for Crerar and King to propose  : throwing open the Canadian^'market to a flood  of both agricultural ahd manufactured products of the United States when there is not  the slightest possibility of .any compensative  advantage to Canada..  Does any sane Canadian believe that Crerar  or King, hat in hand, could persuade the  United States Government to completely  reverse its Tariff policies and agree to reciprocal trade in face of American public demand for a high protective-Tariff ?  The people of the United States conduct their  affairs and protect themselves by the principle that "Business is business." Why should  Canada do otherwise?  Unlike Crerar or King, MElGttEN stands  firm for a reasonable Tariff to protect all our  industries ���������������������������- those of the farm, the sea, the  mine; the forest, the factory, and for the  building up of a bigger and better Canada  through the full development of the home  market. -   %r-  FRIENDSHIP WITH THE UNITED STATES? YES, BY ALL MEANS I  Jet us defend our kerne market, our industries, our farms, our workmen,  our Jwmes by the same,methods as are used so effectively-  against ws. . .^ -. ^    *-  Let ns work ont our own destiny���������������������������that of a strong, self-contained nation witWn tlie British  Empire gronp of Nations, courageous, masterful, self-reliant'  ^e National liberal and Conservative Party Publicity Committee.     se  tha������������������~Pritisir~Columbians-taxation "sys-  tem was the worst ever, and in support of his contention quoted from  Professor Laube, who had dubbed the  provincial system "the most complicated imaginable."  He said that taxation arrears in the  municipalities amounted to $12,828,-  050, with sinking fund- shortages in  excess of $6,000,000. Property, representing $4,460,000 in tax arrears, had  been taken over by the municipalities, and this paid no further revenue.  Tho burden was rapidly increasing,  he added, and the position of the  municipalities   was   most   unenviable.  Another source of municipal difficulties was the increased demand  for school accommodation, he continued, and this amounted to $5,215,-  707 this year, with the government  only granting $1,070,000 for school  purposes.  Still, he went on, the taxes paid by  landowners   had  increased   from   $S,-  Notary Public  Insurance and General Agent  JAS. DICKSON  Bell Block Enderby  E. WATERSON  ENDERBY, B. Ci  Estimates given on any job of brick  & stone work; building of fire places  and chimneys, etc.  G9S,817 in 1914 to $16,000,000 in 1921.  The municipalities were told that it  was all their own fault, he said, and  they must find, their own remedy.  "The situation is appaling," he repeated. "There are" no. additional  sources of revenue; tax arrears are  huge, as are sinking fund shortages.  The municipalities have scrimped and  saved;  they have pleaded for money  whicir~is~rightl3^_tlieirs; they~have  asked for consideration and help and  they have been rebuffed and sent  home."  "The session has been swerved  from its purpose and the government  is gasping to save itself" continued  Mr. Jones. "There is a want of confidence everywhere and everybody is  protesting. No wonder the finance  minister showed no enthusiasm during .his address." ,  Dealing with public accounts, the  member said that the figures shown  were startling. Reckless borrowing,  extravagant spending were everywhere noticeable. Even during the  past two months $3,000,000 had been  borrowed. He claimed that the heritage of the present government had  been good roads, bridges, schools,  hospitals and public buildings; that  the public debt increased only $12,-  000,000 during thirteen years of Conservative rule, while the Oliver administration had increased the debt  over $7,000,000 annually.  "And what is there to show for it?  Nothing but a discredited administration," he asserted.  The speaker said that the fixed  charges ofJthe government were $13,-  916,941 in March last, while, this session found them up to $16,000,000, or  an increase of $2,000,000.

Enclerby Brick Co., Ltd. o-20tf  If satisfactory profits are to be obtained from the keeping of hens, it is  necessary that eggs be produced  during the season of scarcity and  high prices.  Eggs laid in November and December will usually fetch from two to  throe times the price of eggs laid in  April and May. Poultrymen should,  therefore, put forth every effort, toward the production of winter eggs.  Success depends, very largely, upon  the care and feed which the flock is  given. There are other feeds besides  the grain and water commonly fed,  that are essential, if heavy winter  production is to be expected. The  most important of these are the green  and animal feeds, and it cannot be  too strongly emphasized that these  are absolutely necessary to high production. Green feed may be supplied  in the form of mangels, clover hay,  sprouted oats, waste cabbage or vegetable parings, while animal feed may  be given in the form of milk, green  cut bones, beef scrap or digestive  tankage.  The following method of feeding  should give satisfactory results:  Morning, a light feed of scratch  grain scattered in the litter. Noon, a  moist mash "may be given in which is  mixed table scraps of green cut bone.  Night, a full feed of scratch grain.  In addition to the aforementioned, a  constant supply of grit, oyster shell,  charcoal ancl fresh water should be  kept before the flock at all times, also  a dry mash. This mash may be made  up of different ingredients, but one  that will give good results is bran,  middlings, corn meal, ground oats  and meat meal, equal parts. If milk is  available or green cut bone is being  used the percentage of meat meal  may be reduced. Feed the whole grain  sparingly so as to get the flock to  consume a large proportion of mash,  as it is always noticeable that the  consumption of mash is greater when  production is at its highest.���������������������������George  Robertson5, Poultry Husbandman,*3 Central Experimental Farm.

Dated at the City Hall, Enderby,  this 17th day of November. 1921.  GRAHAM  ROSOMAN,  nl7-4 City Clerk.  Perhaps no problem which has  loomed upon the legislative horizon  during the last few years has assumed  such importance in the eyes of the  general public as that pertaining to  municipal taxation. More money Is  needed 0by nearly every administrative body in British Columbia, while  the government must have more revenue in order to' keep pace with expenditures.  Every possible source of revenue  has been under consideration, from  appropriating half the wealth of the  rich down to taxing gasoline. The  government proposed to give the municipalities the personal property tax.  but this many of the larger centres  will not have. A strong complaint has  ^gon e���������������������������u p���������������������������f ro m���������������������������i n dust iilal���������������������������h ead s���������������������������al 1**  over the province, to the effect that  such a step would result in the stagnation of industry ancl even the removal of many firms from the province So as to avoid the increased burden.  An increase in thc income tax may  be looked fof, while there is a strong  indication that the govoi.iment will  collect something from every dollar  earned in British Columbia, regardless of who earns it. Members of the  Legislature, of both parties, have expressed disapproval of this, claiming  that the man with a small income,  and reference is particularly made to  tho workingman, needs all he has.  The assessment proposed amounts to  one per cent, which means that the  man earning $125 per month would  contribute SI.25 per month in taxes,  or $15 per year.  There will be an increase cf $250,-  000 in the school grant and air equal  division of the revenue from the sale  of liquor. However, the final settlement of the taxation question, for another year at least, will not be  reached until near the end of thc  present session of the House. Premier  Oliver is asking for suggestions from  all who have them to offer, maintaining that the government is not tied  to any set policy but is endeavoring  to meet the wishes of the majority.  Mr. G. Baldwin returned from the  prairie last week.  Several ranchers here are busy  taking out cordwood.  Mr. and Mrs. T. W. Lidstone spent  Thursday and Friday in Enderby visiting friends. iJL  Mr. McAusland of Grindrod is putting in a saw mill on the Bench. He  has the engine already on the ground.  A few members of the Grandview  Bench United Farmers local went to  Enderby last Thursday night to attend the business social held by the  Enderby local and all speak highly of  the welcome they, received and hope  that there will be more of these joint  meetings held by the different locals.  HE  DOESN'T SAY SO  BUT WE  DO  Natural modesty would obstruct the  appreciation of the public of the excellent work being done by J.B.Munro  at Armstrong and Enderby in imparting valuable intruction to the rising  generation of young farmers who, before long, will be called to all the  duties of maturity, if it were not for  abundant evidence of his effort which  will not and cannot be hid.  Mr. Munro is doing a big work, is  handling a big man-size job, and is  giving his boys a better chance to become farmers in the fullest sense of  the word than boys of any other generation ever enjoyed. In farming as  in any other business or profession,  knowledge is the chief implement of  production; that these lads are acquiring an abundance of it is evident  from their achievement and reputation, and whether_.he_ wjjl or ..not, _J___B._  Munro   is   entitled  share of the credit.  to   a   very   large  ���������������������������Farm and Home.  Advertising pays if you know how  to advertise. So does any other enterprise if you know how to conduct  it. There were other stores, with more  capital ancl larger stocks, in Toronto  when Eaton started. They let the people come to them; Eaton went after  the people. Eaton expanded; they  contiacted. Eaton let people know he  had goods to sell and gave the prices.  thcy didn't. That is the whole story  of the Eaton success.���������������������������The Leaser.
