 ��������������������������������������������������������������������������������� %  IN WHICH IS MERGED THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY.  Vol. M; No. 28, Whole No. 712  Thursday, December 8, 1921  Subscription $3   per year  MacKelvie Wins by Increased  Majority; Liberals Win East  Dominion returns at noon, Dec. 7th:  (complete)  Liberal, 118;  Conservative  50;  Progressive,  54;  Labor, 2;  Social-  - ist, 2; total 235.  The election of J. A. MacKelvie in  Yale Riding is conceded by a majority of 575 or thereabouts. Last year  Mr. MacKelvie's majority oyer Col.  Edgett was 3S9. In Enderby last year  Edgett polled 195 against MacKelvie  SI. On Tuesday Sutherland polled  240 against MacKelvie's 160. There  was about this proportion of increase  in the vote all along the line. Vernon  last year gave MacKelvie S9S, and  Edgett 571, wlt'le in this contest the  vote was S44 for MacKelvie and 541  for Sutherland, a' slight falling off in  either case. In Kelowna, Sutherland's homo town, MacKelvie polled  47S against Sutherland's 922. Last  year Grindrod gave MacKelvie 17 and  Edgett 43, "while this year the vote  was MacKelvie 29, Sutherland S3.  Mara gave MacKelvie 13 and Edgett  64 last" year, and now gives MacKelvie 21 and Sutherland C9. The vote  at Armstrong last year was MacKelvie 248,  Edgett 344;   while it was in  -tliis contest MacKelvie 343, Suther.  land 431.  The weight of Penticton's vote, as  well as that of all the lake towns except Kelowna. went to MacKelvie, at  Summerland a majority of 132, and  Penticton a majority of 391.  - Tho quick and obliging ^service of  the Okanagan Telephone "Company to  its patrons and the public in giving  the returns was much appreciated-  "Huple yet to hear froni," is a phrase  coined a 'long time ago, and after  every election in years past the. world  .has been .kept in suspense a dayv or  two or three waiting for the results  to come down. Not so this time. A  telephone was installed at Huple a  few weeks ago, and the result of this  election's polling was known in Verr  non twenty minutes after the poll Was  closed: MacKelvie 5, Sutherland 29.  Last year it went 26 for Edgett, every  ballot going against the Government.  x Following  are  the  polls  reporting:  ^     - Mac-    "Suther-  Kelvle       land  Armstrong     343 431  Ashton   Creek     34 +7  Allenby^  V   8 25  Allen Grove     20 IS  Beaverdoll     20 37  Benvoulin     54 43  Bridesvillo     20 37  Blue  Springs     18 10  Boundary   Falls  9 22  Brown Creek    S 20  B X Poll  66 36  Coldstream     130 53  Coalmont     51 34  "CoarMine".TTT77.T.T " "31 - 55-  Commonage     19 6  Chute  Lake     12 17  Cascade     17 74  Cawston     56 '46  Deep  Creek     15 32  Enderby     160 240  Ewing's  Landing   ... 20 2  Falkland    '.  32 26  Fife     15 19  Grand   Forks     425 337  Grindrod      29 83  Glenemma     7 15  Glonmore     54 46  Grandview  Bench   ... 32   ^ 40  Greenwood     135 121  Heywood's   Corner   .. 9 35  Hifllcar     23 53  Hupel      5 29  Hedley      54 26  Kelown  47S 922  South Kelowna   SI 36  East Kelowna     95 55  Kaleden  .'  29 6  Keremeos     175 73  Killiney    i - 7 2  Lumby      53 116  Lavington      23 '24  Larkin      23 21  Mara     21 67  Mabel   Lake     26 22  Midway     45 '45  Mineola      51 15  Naramata     89 46  Okanagan      22 '���������������������������      13  Okanagan  Falls   ..... 5S 17  Okanagan Centre  .... 43 11  Okanagan Landing 45 35  Oliver     72 92  Osoi oos   32 9  Oyama     112 27  Peachland     149 64  Penticton     906 515  Princeton   124 171  Reid's Landing  ...... 4 7  Rutland       129 138  Riverside     43 40  15  4  134  Rock   Cre k          44  Short's  Point        30  Summerland          247  West   Summerland   ..   220  SIdley           6  Silver Creek  ,     15  Sugar Lake           9  Trinity Valley 0  4  Vernon       S44  Wood's Lake           59  While we have been unable to get  full returns from many of the polling  places in the Yale Riding, we were  able to get from the Okanagan Telephone Company, Wednesday night at  S.30 the information that Mr. MacKelvie's final majority is 575.

I have no  further comment to make." Tn<sc were the  words of Premier Meigcn, uttered Tuesday night  when the result of the elections was known. Thcy  express the character of the man. A penetrating  mind, and a statesman, defeated by his friends.  Premier Meighen has had to hear the defeat tliat  shoUld^have^becn^bornc^by^Sir^Robert^Borclen-  on whose retirement Meighen had to take up a  burden no man could hope to carry. It was thai  of the "inner circle," pampered and grown fat  on war contracts and special privileges, ancl insistent upon holding on aflcr peace came. Possibly had the Prime Minister instituted a clean  up immediately on taking up the .nianile laid  off by Borden he then could havc had the people  behind him. But the inevitable was postponed.  He dared not face the task; thc clean-up did nol  come���������������������������now it has bcen made.  Time was, in Canada, when the people were  prepared to follow lhcir political leaders inlo any  tariff revision con lest thcy had a mind to pul  up to them. They'd get out and howl to beat the  band for a tarilT or for free trade, depending on  wliich side of the fence they stood. But, not so  today. The larill" scare is no longer effective.  The people understand as never before that any  tariff levied to protect certain classes, or certain  manufacturers, is an indirect tax upon themselves���������������������������the manv���������������������������for thc benefit of tlie special  class*���������������������������the few. " And, rightly or wrongly, they  feel that thc protected class in Canada havc not  played the game fairly. The feeling is abroad,  and was given expression to at the polls, that our  manufacturers have taken, and arc taking, an  unjust advantage of the protection given them  by'thc tariff, and are draining thc pockets of the  people to thc limit of their ability to pay. And  any party in powcr must suffer thc consequence  of having had anything lo do wilh framing thc  tariff laws which havc bcen abused or turned  against the people.  In a contest resulting so close as this one, it is  difficult-to know for a day or two exactly what  the standing in the House will be.    It is con  ceded, however, that MacKenzie King will have  JtfS.out of the total membership 235. This gives  him a majority but not a working majority. He  will probably win a few of the eleven seats yet  to he heard from. Thc Conservatives are conceded 48, and thc Progressives 58 scats. Since  these figures were reported, four scats more are  conccdcd-Gonserva ti-ve,-wi th-only^sevciuiiudoub t._  It can be peen from this how slim the Liberal majority will be, and a coalition would not be surprising.  The prominent position assumed by the Progressive party, with 58 members elected, is indicative of thc trend of Canadian politics. The  farmers of Canada have always been Conservative. Thcy remained Conservative until the  Union Government was. formed, and il became,  in common belief, at least, thc party of the manufacturers and special-privilege class. Then  was formed the Progressive, or people's party.  And it is to this party that Canada will look to  for the new spirit of Canadianism that musl  work to a cleaner political life.  As was slated in these columns early in September, thcrc never was any serious doubt as to  thc elction of Mr. MacKelvie in this riding,  though Mr. Sutherland gave him a hard run. It  was Yccognized at the outset lhat in thc campaign of a year ago Mr. MacKelvie made a clean,  open fight and won on thc merits of the contest,  and in his initial sessional work hc took up in an  able manner with thc various departments at  Ottawo, thc many issues which arc agitating thc  people of his constituency. And it was generally  conceded that to him should be given the opportunity to complete the work started. It may bc  said, speaking locally, that in thc matter of Indian reserve, Mr. MacKelvie placed Enderby's  case before thc Indian Department and received  the assurance that this case was thc clearest and  best presented .the Department had before it, and  would receive action if it should be decided by  the Government to take over any Indian reserves  to be opened for settlement.  will permit.  "FREE  STATE  OF   IRELAND"  Splitting   Hairs   Over   Pledge   of  legiance  Finally at an  End.  Al-  The stumbling block in the way of  an agreement over the Irish question,  has been the refusal of Sinn Fein to  subscribe to the oath of "allegiance to  the King. At last a form of words  has  been  found  which  satisfies  both  51  parties, and the recognition of Ireland  as an independent state is said to be  clear. The difficulty was obviated by  suggesting an .oath pledging allegiance to the Free State of Ireland, to  the Empire and to the King." The  principle at last adopted by the government is said to havc been that of  trusting Ireland fully and giving her  full power of decision without hampering her by conditions. A governor-  general with the same powers as the  governor-general of Canada, will be  appointed. Tho British navy is to enjoy the facilities of Irish harbors in  peace and war times. The free state  is permitted a military force in the  same proportion- to its population as  in Britain. The condition previously  insisted upon that there must be free  trade between Great Britain r.nd Ireland is said to have been dropped by  the government and Ireland is given  freedom regarding tariffs. The delegates of the Dail Eireann, however,  explained that it would be to Ireland's  advantage t0 have free trade between  the two islands and that she would  adopt this voluntarily.  MEETING   OF   RETURNED   MEN  . A meeting of the Returned Mon  will be held in Farmer's Hall, on  Thuisday. Dec.

December 8,= 1921  Water-Power Development  In lhc discussion relating lo lhc proposed development of hydro-clcclric power al Shuswap  Palls by the people of Ihe Okanagan, organized  as a unit I'or lhat purpose, many sidelights are  reflected upon the main issue which help to concentrate thought bearing upon thc project. We  find much in the reports of thc Canadian Conservation Board which is an aid to lhe fuller understanding of the proposition. For instance, British  Columbia has three millions of horsepower available from hcr rivers and streams. Of lhis sum,  Lhere are 209,620 horsepower developed. By far  lhc grealer amount of this developed horsepower  is i'or use in paper and pulp mills, comparatively  little being used Mbr light, lical and other power.  The amount of this developed power owned  and operated by municipalities for light, fuel,  etc., is of little importance and hardly worth  mentioning. Private companies, for the most  pari arc doing what should be done by municipalities for lhcir people. Speaking in connection  wilh thc effort then being made by the Colcau  Power Company to get control of the waler-  powOr a I-Co lea u Falls, on the St. Lawrence, Senator Edwards in 1918 said: "If thcrc is a counlry  in the world that will have lo solve dillicult problems after this unfortunate war is over, Canada  is lhat country; and it behooves Canadian to  study and understand lhc real condition of affairs. Unfortunately, Canada has lived for many  years in a fool's paradise as to ils natural resources. Wc arc nol possessed of lhc inexhaustible  natural wealth thai our people generally believe  wc havc." -v . ':"   " i  At that time, in opposing lhc general tendency  of our men,,in powcr to give lo American companies control of Canadian waterpowcrs, lhe  Conservation Board quoted this passage from  Pinchot's reporl lo his Government on "the con-  ' Irol of waterpower in the United States, which  is as applicable in Canada:      , ,    '      .  "Whoever dominates powor,_ dominates all industry-  Have you ever seen a few drops of oil .scattered" on the  water spreading until they form a continuous film, which  put an end-at once to all agitation of the" surface. The  time for us to agitate this Question is now, before "the  separate circles of centralized control spread into''the uniform, unbroken, nation-wide covering of a single gigantic  trust. There, will be little chance for mere agitation after  ���������������������������that. No man at all familiar with the situation can doubt  that the time for effective protest Is very short. If we clo  not use it to protect ourselves now, we may be very sure  that the trust will give hereafter small consideration to  the welfare of the average citizen when in conflict with its  own."  Scrapping the Anglo"Japanese Alliance  Taxation and Industry  rnio. lime is aoproaching. if not alrendv bore.  when avc shall have to scran cither our taxation  Jaws-or-lhc-industrics-of-thc ...co;.intr_v. ._Already  many industrial concerns havc closed doors-and  slopped, producing, and J...many more arc preparing-': to''.follow. Our unemployed number  hundreds of thousands.' Our industries on the  brink of ruin and unproductive. Tn this respect  wc: do not differ greatly'from the United States  a.nd ihc European countries.  "Lack of markcl," "People 'will not buy," "No  demand:" these ""arc some of the reasons given  for the slump. But. lookin.o around-the corner,  we clin see ahoiherVincI perhaps the nrim^ fac-  ������������������ ior. Six .months' ago .i ministry in the United  Stales faced the same problems which wc musl  f:x''e in Canada. Tn July President Harding made  it clear-lo, his parly leaders in Congress that be  wanted a lax-program adopted which would lift  restraint from business initiative, and congress  bas bad lo scrap Ibc lax laws which imposed  such burdens upon business.  We need lo scrap cerlain tax laws in Canada,  otherwise we shall be without industries in a  comparatively short lime. Our taxation laws  are simply becoming unbearable, and induslry  after industry is left crippled and dying. -There  is no incentive lo capital today, nor to anyone,  e'lber lo conlinuc in business or to initiate new  ���������������������������enlerpri.se. The rake-off taken from business by  bolh our provincial and dominion governments,  and the evcr-incrca.sJn<f demand for lower prices,  leaves no margin on which business can be conducted in safely. The results already arc to be  seen in lhe closing down of one mill after another, and company plants standing idle or ceasing altogether. Industry, "the goose that lays  llie golden egg," is being throttled by a pernicious system of taxation lhat makes men more  free of burden as non-producers than as producers, and  which penalizes  induslry.  A Washington despatch says the Anglo-Japanese Alliance is scrapped. But listen: instead of  a two-party alliance, we now have a four-party  alliance���������������������������the United States, Great Britain, Japan  and France���������������������������who''have entered into an undertaking lo jointly keep  the peace ofthc Pacific.  Anolhcr important point in thc Far Eastern  discussion in lhc arms conferen cc was won by  China in lhc com mi I te of nine powers, Great  Brilain, Japan and France agreeing lo retire  from much of lhc leased territory of China.  Japanese representatives, it is reported, have  agreed on lhc pari of Japan lo give up their territorial holdings in Shantung and havc oll'cred to  bargain for their retirement from their special  privileges in Manchuria. M. Viviani. for France,  expressed willingness lo retire from Kwan Chow  Wa,i, lhe French leasied territory, and British  spokesmen are said to have followed wilh a  proller lo *>"ive up the British leased tcrrilorv of  Weil lei Wei.  In this connection', what Frank II. Simonds  says in relation lo lhc Anglo-Japanese Alliance,  in the December Review of Reviews, will bc of  inleresl: "Thc facl is lhat lhc Anglo-Japanese  Alliance has becn a partnership in which the  British profits havc bcen enormous. I do not  think il is too much lo say lhat on the whole Iho  greal gain up to dale has been Brilish. Originally  constructed to meet the Russian menace, which  W^s then lhc dominant factor in the Far East, it  was continued when Germany became the threat  to Brilish security. As a consequence of this alliance Great Brilain was able lo remove hcr first-  line units, from ihc Pacific to lhc North Sea and  confront Germany. Tn Ihe course of Ih.c World  War Japanese Heels swept lhc Pacific of German  raiders, patrolled the sea lanes vital to British  trade, and even contributed useful naval assistance in the Mediterranean.  "Today llie British havc no interest which  would be disadvantaged by tlie continuance of  the Alliance. There is political pressure in many  parls of thc Empire insisting upon the dissolution of thc "Alliance as an .obstacle to Anglo-  American friendship. J3ritish interests unmistakably would be he1?!! served today by thc denunciation of the Treaty of Alliance, provided there  were an.honorable method of accomplishing tliis  result. Unhappily, the honorable method is not  discoverable. British prestige and Brilish sclf-  rcspoct would sutler incalculable injuiy if at Ihc  behest of ,a third power, and inthc pursuit of selfish interests alone, Great Britain should now divorce a partner who.on lhc whole.has: served her  'Well, even if Japanese policy in recent years has  done violence lo lhe spirit of thc compact, wilh.  infinite profit to Japan. Jn this situation Ihc  British policy is clear. Lloyd George has frankly  suggested that there should be substituted for the  Anglo-Japanese Alliance an Aiutfo-Ameri can-  Japanese association in the Pacific. Even" in  Japan there is no longer any illusion as lo thc  real value of thc British Alliance. Tokio perceives as clearly as London or Washington lhal  in a conflict between Japan and the United Slates  Greal Brilain would bc at least neutral, and in all  human probability an ally of lhe United Stales  before lhc conflict bad continued long. To be  thrown off violently and publicly by Britain  would be an injury to Japanese prestige and  pride which would be resented forever. On the.  other hc.nd, there ki little reason to believe lhat  there would be any considerable Japanese hostility to a translation of .thedual alliance into a  tripartite association."  Setting Politics to Jazz Musie  "" "~ T'Icrc^aird"lhere.~iirMhc^Oka naganr=in-^he-po-=  li lical campaign just ended, the campaign commillcc of one of thc candidates insisted on sending an orchestra a'o..__ wilh lhc candidate when  he addressed his meetings, and provided music  for dancing at the close of lhc speaking. Natur-  allv. Ihe meetings were largely attended, for today Ih.c world is in a ia/zed stale of mind, and a  free dance laken wiih your politics has a very  sedative clicet and will draw a crowd anywhere  anvlime. Bul lhe idea of having lo do this is a  new one. As a campaign stunt, il is up-to-the  minulc. Bul il is a question if il i.s wise as a vole-  ge.ller, for even a jazzed world has its sober  moments when it prefers its political speakers  and political literature set on a higher plane.  Canada's problems today are loo serious lo Ik1  treated lightly. The heart sickens al so much m  life lhuM-9 not real. From our politicians and  men seeking to serve as legislators, the people  want to hear something constructive, not destructive.

Notice is hereby given that the first  sitting of the Court of ReA-ision will  be held at the City Hall, Enclerby,  Saturday, the 10th day of December,  1921, at S o'clock p.m., for the purpose of revising and correcting the  Voters' List of the City of Enderby  and of the extra-municipal portion of  the School District of Enderby, and  hearing and determining any application which may then be made to the  said Court t0 strike out the name of  any person improperly placed thereon, or to place on such list the name  of any person improperly omitted  therefrom;  Dated at the City Hall, Enclerby,  this 17th clay of November, 1921.  GRAHAM  ROSOMAN,  nl7-4 City Clerk.  When speaking of the recent proposal to occupy the Ruhr district,  Premier Lloyd.George said: "I must  first point out exactly Avhat occupation of the Ruhr would mean. Before  the war the output of coal in the  Ruhr valley Avas the largest production obtained in any single coal field  in the Avorld. It was considerably over  one hundred million tons. It contains  every quality of coal for every conceivable _purpose.._for___Avhich-_coal__can  be used. Two thirds of the Avhole of  the German iron and steel production  is in the Ruhr Valley. The importance of the region may be gauged by  the fact that last year 25,000 raihvay  trucks of fifteen tons Avere loaded  every day in the Ruhr, double the  number of goods trucks handled daily  by the Nord Railway in the great industrial A'alley of France. During the  war the Ruhr Valley Avas Germany's  great arenal for guns, for shells, for  gas, and the industrial development  of South Germany depends almost  entirely upon the coal of the Ruhr.  With the Ruhr gone, industrial Germany withers."  K. Imanaki expects to leave for  Japan early in the New Year, where  he Avill spend some time Avith his  children.  U.
