Much credit is due the untiring efforts of several members of the self-  constituted building and ice committee, and to Constable Bailey, who  worked under every conceivable difficulty to get water into the rink, and  to the boys of Enderby for their good  work in  building -the ici.  To Mr. Grant, who took full charge  of the work of building, credit is aJso  given for the substantial structure.  The building over all is, in round  figures, 100x200 feet It is built for  agricultural   show   purposes   as   well  dent of that qfthe main building.

In every large city of thc Dominion thousands  of men arc living upon the public dole. Somc arc  put to work a day or two a week; others are housed and'fed in rcconcentration camps; others are  fed by direct allowance from government appropriations.  These things may be the only thing to do under  existing circuniisitances and in order to keep  peace, but it is a mighty poor recommendation  for the existing order of things to have in this  Canada of ours where there is so much need for  developement and for men to be set to Work upon our farm lands, in forests, in mjinesi, in factories, in fisheries, etc, to have thousands,���������������������������able  bodied and willing to work���������������������������housed and fed in  and out of concentration camps.

This covers only the liquor"  sales for the first quarter's operation  of the Liquor Act, ending Sept. 30th.  If the number of club bags travelling  to and from Vernon Christmas week  is any criterion as to Uie rest of this  dry Province, Enderby's share for  that week alone should be another  $500 at least.  All told, the booze revenue coming  to Enderby should be upwards of two  thousand a year. Tliis, with the revenue coming from other sources allowed by the Provincial Government,  should mean $4,000 or $5,000 a year  for Enderby, which would mean that  the rate of municipal taxation on  real estate could be substantially reduced.

Thursday,-December 29, 1921  o  Municipal Elections  This week some indication of interest is in evidence in connection wilh the municipal elections  which arc to lake"place early in January.  A peti'.ion was circulated on Friday last and  gencrousiv signed, asking Mayor Barnes to stand  ior re-election. On Saturday anolher petition  was circulated asking Mr. Smedley to accept thc  nomination for mayor.  Neither Mavor Barnes nor Mr. Sr.icdicy is  anxious to undertake thc job. After serving a  number .of vears Mr. Barnes feels he has filled  llie office long enough and would gladly step  aside. Mr. Smedley" has no mayoralty aspirations, though lie, as Veil as Mr. Barnes, might bc  induced to "take up thc. duties of thc office if thcy  were convinced tliat thcy could bc of service to  the people in iso doing.  .. In this connection;-there is this lo bc said in  favor of Mr. Barnes continuing: Mr. Smedley  has had no aldermanic experience, and in justice  to himself ..and thc people any aspirant lo the  mayoralty should have served al least a year or  two as aldcrmaVi.  An effort is to bc made to induce Alderman  Coltart to again undertake thc. work, though he  has expressed a definite desire, to retire and get  out of civic duties entirely.  For several ycars Mr. Coltart has bcen chairman" of the finance committee of the civic body,  and has ever been a faithful and untiring worker  in the interest of Enderby and the district. To  his safe and sane guidance much is due from, thc  citizens of Enderby foijc the excellent financial  condition of the city's! finances at this time.  While not, a resident of thc cily, enough of Mr.  .Collarl's properly is within the city limits to  qualify him, for thc pesiton of alderman. The  pasl two years Mr. Coltart has occupied the position in thc public interest much more than in his  own: Faithfully at all limes Mr. Coltarl has served on the council, often at considerable (sacrifice  of his lime and comfort. In the recent controversy regarding the river park ground provided  by the cfty in connection wilh the rink-agricultural hall building. Alderman Collart took issue  with the committee in lhe matter of change of  i site for the building, and for doing so hc was accused of-"knocking" lhe project. As a matter of  fact, "well known by many, Alderman Collar!: was  boosting the rink-agricultural.park project lo his  fellow (armera and others when those bsr whom  hc wus accused were themselves doing the  "knocking". Alderman Col tart's protest in connection with thc change of site was and is based  upon sound judgem'ent. Hc contended that certain contributions to thc building fund were  sought and obtained upon a definitely accepted  plan which left nothing unsettled or uncertain;  whereas the change of building site com.plcalcs  matters by placing the building wilh len lots to be  **-=dea It^-wi thHDCtwecn^thc^park^si tc-a ndVhcHjuildingr  And with a further liability thrust upon the shareholders of having placed the building over a registered street or lane without having applied to  have the same legally closed. This, Mr. Coltart  contended, was nol keeping faith with the subscribers i'or slock, and placed them and tiie city  at the mercy of Ihc lot owners between the building and the park ground.  And. whether those responsible for the change  like Mr. Collarl's logic, or do not like il. il will be  up lo Ihem to answer to the shareholders for get-  ling the rink-hall-park piojcct oul of thc muddle  Ihey put it into.  And, whether Mr. Coltart can be induced to remain on the council or nol. he will have retained  the. confidence of all citizens and their gratitude  for services faithfully rendered.  Alderman Burnham has definitely stated I ha/  he will nol stand again, while Aldermen Gaylord  and Mackay arc non-committal.  The election may^clarify thc atmosphere if it  does noihing more.  Meighen the Opposition Leader  crnmjent. Conservatives wall then naturally become the official opposition and Right Hon.  Arthur Meighen, if he decides to remain in politics, will be its leader. Mr. Meighen will, however, have to secure a seat,"    .,  In this connection the Vancouver Farm and  Home speaks for all when it says:  "Following thc resignation of the Hon. Arthur  Meighen as Prime Minister of Canada hc will  not even be a member of Parliament a������������������ hc was  defeated by a narrow majorily in his own constituency.  "It is highly regrettable that a man of such  brilliance, high mentality and oratorical ability  should stand in danger of his position as leader  of his party; many of those who were loudest iQj  their praise so long as hc occupied a position of  authority arc now only lukewarm in their  loyally to a leader who served and led them  with greater determination and seriousness than  his. followers will ever realize in his lifclimfc.  Hc failed to win a return to powcr for his party  and now, the quiet voices of the parly organizations arc threatening lo cast him off.  "Arthur Meighen is a man of patriotism, honor  splendid intelligence and great seriousness no  matter whal his faults may be, and Canada needs  men of this type in hcr public life; if ever it was  true that "Canada heeds Mcighcn" it is true today. The leadership of his party in Opposition  will ripen him to greater public usefulness and  give him a training where he is now deficient.  The consensus of opinion in Canada loday is that  Mcighcn musl not be betrayed by his party; As  Premier thc country docs not want him, bul  both Liberals and Conservatives as well as Progressives will/agree lhat such a man as Mcighcn  must not be lost by parliament.  "If hc cannol find a constituency. in eastern  Canada, w can very quickly provide him, wilh  onc in Brilish Columbia. High quality in thc  leadership of the Opposition is as necessary as il  is on thc government benches, and if Arthur  Meighen will- do Brilish Columbia th A honor fo  stand in one of our ridings all shades of poitical  workers will unite to give him cither an accla-  maton or an overwhelming election against any  opponent."  Sockeye Salmon���������������������������and Politics  An Ottawa, dispatch, asks: "who will lead lhc  official opposition in the next house?" and then  proceeds to say:  "Immediately following the general election,  Mon. T. A. Crcrar, leader of the National Pro-  gressves and head of the largest group in opposition lo the coming Liberal ministry, was regarded as thc na.lural. leader of official opposition  But subsequent dcvclopcments have brought a  Liheral-Progressive alliance within the bounds of  possibility. Should it be brought about, Mr.  Crerar, instead of opposing, will support the gov-  It is nol usual for Canadian officials to attempt lo put anything over on American officials, bul a week or two ago, in a conference between Canadian fishery ollicials and fishery officials of lhc State of Washhington, an attempt  was made at political jugglery Svhich failed so  miserably that our *o\vn officials had the laugh  turned on them, and lhc Americans went home  without coming to an agreement, and the situation in regard to the depletion cf sockeye salmon remains unchanged.  Thc Vancouver Sun tcllsi how it happened.  "The whole conference was a weak attempt a I  political jugglery," il says, "and in this respect  thc Candian officials were thc offenders. Instead of gel ting down to a practical investigation  of conditions lhc Canadian representatives tried  lo bind lhc confcrcnc to an absurd vow of secrecy until thc new Ottawa cabinet had ratified  any agreement that might be reached.  The suggestion of thc Canadian officials was  lhat a closed season be declared on socKeyc salmon up to and including the year 1926. If aftei  that time, it was found that thc closed season had  been a success and sockcyc"salmon were again  increased sufficiently in numbers, it was proposed by the Canadians that American fishing in  Pugct Sound be debarred from using seine nets  or traps.  Since���������������������������Canadian-fishcrmen-in-the.-Fraser. .use  gill nets almost exclusively, and since lhc rough  walers of lhe Sound make gill net fishing almost  impossibe and lhe use of seine nets and traps imperative, this suggestion meant that neither Canadians nor Americans would catch any sockeye  until 1927 and aflcr thai Canadian fishermen  would calch them all.  Naturally the American officials rejected this  plan.  Such attempts a I trickery nis fhis do not commend themselves to lhe Canadan people, British  Columbians want to sec thc sockeye fishing induslry re-estabished on a sound, pure and just  basis.   There is no need for secrecy nor jugglery.  A closed season on sockeye salmon for a term  of years is essential if the induslry in this Province is noL lo bc entirely wiped oul. Thc need  now is greater lhan ever for an independent advisory board, composed of practical fishermen  and canners, lo make recommendations to the  new Ottawa Government so lhat lhc Marine Department may settle the matter in a way satisfactory to British Columbians.  ^  Hon. J. W. Deb. Farris, attorney-general and  minisier of labor in the Oliver government, resigned these offices last week and is intending to  get out of politics and back into private practice.

MUNRO  REVELSTOKE, B.C.  W. K. Esling, Rossland's member  in the Provincial House, gives in the  Rossland Miner, his impressions of the  recent session of Legislature, called  three months ahead of the usual  time, ostensibly to provide aid for  municipalities. This aid, as forecasted by the government members  in reply to the speech from the throne,  was to have been raised by a one per  cent, income tax, from which there  s.hould be no exemptions, so that the  girl in the telephone office, store or  dining rooim, as well as the miner,  were to pay one per cent on their pay  check to the government. This met  with such strong protest that even the  Government followers refused t0 support it, so the policy was changed.  Then came' a hew proposal to cre-  date a distinct personal property tax  and, g'.ve it to the municipalities,  Avhile. the Government would take  over the income tax. This too, the  Government was unable to��������������������������� carry and  so, it once agpin changed its policy  and decided to increase the tax on  automobiles by fifty per cent, and give  the municipalit es one third of the  revenue as well as five per cent, on  race "track bets. It was not popular,  but tho Government had to do some-:  thing and this was all it-'could offer.  "In the brief period of eight months  of this year the Oliver Government  has borrowed 17 millions. This  means "an additional tax on every man  aDd woman in the Province of $30.per  year. Then they put through a loan  bill of five millions and :have authority to borrow another $9,500,000. The  total .borrowings have been $42,-  000,000 and the additional $14,500,000  which they, have been authorized to  borrow, will make a total of $56,500,-  000 in bond issues, in five years. "In  thirteen years of the" Conservative  administration," says Mr. Esling, "the  total bond issues-were only'$12,000,000  while taxes from all sources were one-  third of what they are today."

A  Nebraska   farmer  on   a  visit  to  Denmark   to   study   the   marvellously  successful and comprehensive system  of_- agriculture  co-operation   in. vogue  there, recently sent the following significant  observations  on   the  subject  to^tho institution in whose behalf he  is conducting his investigations:.       <t  "Tb-da^>J>e:imark is a'garden.    A  century' ago,   in' 18X3,   the   State   of  Dermark became bankrupt,    tack of  food cripple business energy, and consequently the great business houses in  Copenhagen  were  bankrupt.    Jn  this  darkest .hour, we had a new beginning  ���������������������������Danish  peasantry changing  from  a  poor, ignorant,  submerged class to a  well-to-do,    educated    pooplle.      Yes,  even -to   the   extent   that   to-day   the  farmers exert the chief influence upon  the'  kingdom's   dWings.     The   Prime  _Minister__.of^Denmark-_:is_a-ijnember-_of=  the  party controlled  by  tho farmers,  and consequently the farmers are the  power  in  Denmark's  government  today.     The  Danish   people   to-day  believe, that this change, in a great part,  is  owing  to  a  single  man���������������������������N.  F.  S.  Grundtvig,   cleigyman   and   poet,   the  Danish people's spiritual leader in the  19th century.   This great leader of bhe  people created  a new form of education   for young  people  which   taught  them the Christian  foundation  of cooperation.     As   I   have   talked   with  farmers,   school   leaders,   agricultural  leaders   and   leaders   in   co-operative  establishments,, they all point to this  early public education as the Genesis  of  co-operation.    People   must  learn,  feel,  and   live  co-operation   before   it  will'  work    successfully.      Isn't    the  school and home the place to begin?"  I might say, that this is precisely  the point of view I have endeavored to  bring to the serious attention of  Review readers for years. We have  made little progress in co-operative  effort in Western Canada, for the  simple reason, that our educational  propaganda has been largely leased on  retaliation, against those "interests"  we deem have _njured us. We have  overlooked the spiritual side of the  problem. . Ah appeal based on Intolerance and hatred Is futile. Co-operation cannot succeed permanently until  the individual farmer is prepared to  make his sacrifices to help the "under  Old and New  E.W. Beatty.  fl * Gil Is New Ct\L\ticellor  JAMES MSGILL    ' *  founder of/  Mc Gill University  Although the centenary celebrations at Montreal indicate that Mc-'  Gil) University is already a hundred  years old, the roots of th'at great  educational . institution reach still  further into the past. In the fascinating volume "MeGill and Its  Story" just published, Cyrus MacMillan, the author, states that the  British settlers in Lower Canada,  after the conquest of Quebec were  eager that their children should  have at least "an elementary education.' It was felt, too, that in the  unrest and the uncertainty of the  period, immediately ^ following the  American Revolution it was not  advisable to send students' in search  of higher professional, training to  the.universities "of the United States.  which in the days of their British  allegiance had . attracted 'Canadia}.  students in. large numbers. --  Efforts were accordingly made to  -establish a system of free schools  with the hope tHat later a university  might be founded. ' As a result of  the agitation for the providing of  educational-opportunities in ..Lower  Canada, The Royal Institute for the  Advancement of learning. was established under this Act, the King  gave directions for the establishment "of a "competent number of  Free Schools for the instruction of  children in the first rudiments of  useful learning; and also as occasion  should require for .foundations of a  more comprehensive nature." Accordingly, elementary free schools  were soon erected in different parts  of the Province, one-room buildings  of cedar logs. Fhdeed, they ' were  mere log-huts, but they provided the  first free English Education in  J^ower Canada, and laid the foundation for a Canadian nationality. The  Secretary's salary was always" many  months in arrears, and he frequently  complained,  with  unfortunately  but  social temperament"; in figure, "tall  and commanding, handsome in youth,  and becoming somewhat corpulent in  his old age," and ih hi3 leisure  "much given to reading." James MeGill died in 1913 and in his wil] be-,  queathed to the Royal Institution for  the Advancement ofJ Learning, in  trust, the sum of ������������������10,000 and his  Burnside Estate of forty-six acres,  ogether with the dwelling house  md other buildings for the erection  jn the estate, and the endowment,  )f a  University  or  College. c  The first Principal of MeGill was  the   Reverend _George   Jehoshaphat  -Mountain, who was 'appointed Principal . in   1824   while "the -university  was only a name.'  The official opening did not-take place till June 24th,  lS29, and was attended by what the  contemporary press called a gathering   of   "numerous   and   respectable  individuals."    Anxious years marked  the early  history of- MeGill, due to  ack of funds and quarrels between  -he  Board  of,the'Royal  Institutioi  md  the  Governors  of  the   College.  :n   November,   1843,  the .Governors  had  only  the  sum   of ������������������54  at-their  disposal.    They  divided  it  between  the  Bursar  and  the  two  Lecturers  :n proportion to the amount of sal-  xry in.arrears and as" a result'the  lecturer in French, M. Montier, received . ������������������2   14s.   as   his   share   from  January 1st, 1848, to November 29th,  1848.    That was the full amount of  saJary  received  by  him   during  the  year; but he still, says the author,  had his cow and his garden!  Dr. P. C. Majcalum, wrote an  account of medical student life about  this time. ���������������������������" "A large proportion of  the students," he said, "were men  verging on, or who had passed,  middle age. Indeed, several of them  were married men and the heads of  families. There was" sufficient of  the youthful, however, to keep things  little satisfaction, that not only had  lively, 'Footing . Suppers,'   practical  he=*=givenHiis-^time���������������������������for-=some^years= jokes,=and=special-country-excursions  without remuneration, but that he  had expended even his own fuel and  candles. It was not unusual for  teachers to be censured "for not  keeping school at all," or for giving  too many holidays, or for tardiness  in opening school in the morninr-  and eagerness in closing it in the  afternoon. At least one teacher was  warned that his arrears in salary  would not be paid and that he would  be instantly dismissed "if he did no',  treat his wife with greater kindness."  The Royal Institution for the Ad-  . vancement of Learning supervised  the establishment of MeGill College  and directed it in its infancy, for  under the Act of 1801 all property  and money given for educational  purposes in the Province of Lower  Canada was placed under its control.  James MeGill is described by his  contemporaries as  of "a  frank  and  to secure material for practical anatomy were of frequent occurrence.  The last, involving as it did a cor-:  tain amount of danger, commended  itself particularly to the daring  spirits of the class, who were always  ready to organize and lead an excursion having that object in view.  These excursions were not at all  times successful, and the participators in them were sometimes thwarted in their, attempts, and had to beat  a precipitate retreat tp" save Ithem-  selves from serious threatened injury.     *,  The first real progress was made  when the late 'Sir William Dawson  became Principal. "When I accepted  the-principalship of MeGill," he said  in his reminiscences, "I had not  ^een in Montreal, and knew the college and the men connected with it  only by reputation. .1 first saw it  in October. 1855.    Materially it was  dog." That, rather than commercial  self-interest; must become the propelling power in tlie early stages of  such movements, which must grow  slowly and laboriously into successful  enterprises.���������������������������Faim and Ranch Review  FEED  PLENTIFULLY  To get eggs out of a hen in winter  you must put into the hen egg producing food. Just about this time of  year the average amateur and farm  poultry*n,an receives a distinct disappointment: his egg receipts fall off  and threaten t0 undo all the profits of  heavy Spring and early Summer pro  duction. Cold weather, rain, snow  and a score of factors tend to reduce  the egg-laying capacity of even good  layers and the utmo&t care is necessary to get profitably over the year,  for it must be remembered that if a  poultryman doesn't make a goodly  profit on the period from October to  February his year's work is endangered.  Returns available show that sixty  five candidates lost their $200, deposits and that a sum of $13,000 accrued to the Do'minion treasury as a  result.  represented by two blocks of unfinished and partly ruinous buildings, standing amid a wilderness of  excavators' and masons' rubbish  overgrown with .weeds and bushes. <  The grounds were unfenced and were  pastured at will by herds of cattle,  which not only cropped tK'e grass,  but browsed on the shrubs, leaving  unhurt only one great elm, which  still stands as the "'founder's tree,'  and a few old oaks and butternut  trees, most of which have had to,  give place to our new buildings. Th������������������  only access from the town was by  a circuitous and ungraded cart track,"  almost impassable at night. ��������������������������� Tha  buildings.had been abandoned by" the'  new:Board, and the classes.of the  Faculty of ' Arts were - held in the  upper: story-of a brick building, in  the town,J the lower part of which'  was  occupied  by the High' School."  A direct appeal for financial- as- c  sistance was then made to the. citizens of Montreal.    It met  with  an  encouraging response, which greatly,  relieved the situation, and was what  Dr. Dawson, forty years later, called   J  "the beginning of a stream of liberality   which   has   floated   our   University barque .up   to - the present  date."     J ��������������������������� ���������������������������  " The more recent expansion of MeGill to its present strong position is  well   known.    The   appointment   of  Sir Arthur Cqrrie as Principal and  the still more recent election of Mr.  E. W. Beatty, President of the Can--  adian Pacific Railway, as Chancellor  have given  it a  practical - administration   which  is  calculated  to  en*  sure   its  continued   progress - as  an  essentially National University.    In  the Epilogue to his volume Professor  MacMillan writes: "There is a new  spirit  in (McGill.    To-day  its  pulsing  life, under the  guidance of  its  prreat     Canadian     leader,     reaches  ihrough all grades and faculties and  departments   of   its   students   as   it  has=never-=done=before.===There=js=a==  general forward movement unhampered and undivided by considerations  or   competitions   of   sections   or   of  faculties.    The  University is closer,  ':oo, than it once was to the current  of national feeling.    It is seeking to  Minister to Canada, thc land which  gave   it  birth   and   from   which   its  greatness sprang.    But while it will  serve  Canada,   it   will   continue  to  draw    its   students,   like    the   true  "Studium    Generale," . from ...every  country; on   thc  globe,  and   to   send  them back  to serve  their individual  countries to  advance the  enlightenment  of   the .world.     McGill's   first-<J  century has been a century of trial,  but a century  of great'accomplishment of the world."   The publishers  of "MeGill and its Sto-y" are S. B.
