Array ?/  ���������������������������sas?,-  ic&ftit  IN WHICH IS MERGED THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY.  Vol. 14, No. 27, Whole No. 711  Thursday, December 1, 1921  Subscription $3   per year  Important Pacts Relating to  Okanagan Hydro Electric  AU indications point to the proposed county incorporation for hydroelectric development idea being taken  up readily by the North Okanagan,  and a meeting of mayors and reeves  and other businessmen my be expected to be called as soon as the project  can take definite shape.  Men are beginning to realize what  such, a project would mean to this district. With every municipality and  all the territory between linked up  under one hydro-electric system, with  an abundance of electric energy for  manufacturing, transportation, heating,- Lighting and power purposes, the  possible, probable, development of the  Valley ls seen to be beyond compare.  All the problems which the' towns  and cities within the district are now  faced ,with would disappear, and a  clear road to rapid development  would be opened, not only for the incorporated municipalities and towns,  but for the present unincorporated  territory as well.  Some years ago the.Shuswap Palls  power site was taken up by the Cou-  whlch, with the provision of additional  equipment at both power-houses.  would further increase the available  power.  ELECTION   DAY  Tuesday   Next  will   Settle   the   Question as to Federal  Representative  In the federal campaign which is  now virtually ended so far as Enderby is concerned, very little enthusiasm has been aroused by either  party candidate. Certainly the electors of this district have not exhibited anything of the old-time'pep. . It  probably is the same in all ridings in  the west, and'perhaps most of them  n the East. Politics is not yet normal. As a disease it is not fully  developed,  since  the  war.  After listening to all sides, it is  quite probable the electors will go to  the polls and vote as they originally  Intended, before the candidates were  heard. In and about the Enderby  district the vote will no doubt, be for  MacKelvie,   for   the   general   opinion  seems to  be that  he has  served  us  teau "Power "Company, an off-shootot'" *���������������������������" as ai,y������������������ne could, and a great  the Canadian North^n^Railway.

The company's plans contemplate  development in four stages, as Increased demands arise for power. The  first stage, with Intake dam and one  8-foot diameter penstock, 3,750 feet  long, to power-house, will develop a  head of 130 feet at Shuswap Falls, and  provide 4,000 continuous h.p., with a  peak capacity of 7,000 h.p. The second  stage will duplicate the pipe-line at  Shuswap Falls and provide storage by  raising the level of Sugar Lake 18  feet; this will make the total supply  available 8,000 continuous h.p., with a  peak capacity of 13,250 h.p. The third  stage provides for three 8-foot penstocks from intake dam to powerhouse, . and increases the storage by  raising the surface of Sugar Cake  40 feet; this will bring the supply up  to 12,000 continuous h.p., with a peak  capacity of 19,880 h.p. The fourth  stage provides for an additional plant  at the foot of Sugar Lake dam, operating under a head of 70 feet, the water being again utilized at the Shuswap Falls plant, 20 miles lower down  the Valley. It is estimated that the  two plants will yield a total of 18,000  continuous h.p., with a peak capacity  of 28,880 h.p. The dam at Sugar La*ce  will be designed to allow of an eventual   increase   of   height   to   80   feet,  WEDDING BELLS  McKay���������������������������Harrison  , On Monday, Nov. -28th, in Christ  Church, Chatham, by the Rev.

Enderby's school attendance numbers, In round figures, 200. The Provincial Government's revenue from the  sale of liquor thus far amounts to  something over two millions 6f dollars.  Half of this amount Is to be paid to the  municipalities of the Province tp be  applied for school purposes, distributed on the basis of school population,  at, say, $6 per pupil. This means the  sum of $120tf of the booze money will  como to Enderby.  A commendable piece of roadwork  was undertaken some days ago by the  owners- of property along the river in  the vicinity of the farms of Wm. Anderson and W. - J.r Woods, when they  clubbed together and set to work to  gravel the gumbo sideroad leading  from the Enderby-Mara main road.  It required nearly 100 loads of gravel  to complete the work, and these were  spread deep, making what has heretofore been considered one of the worst  soft-weather sideroads in the country  one of the best.'

His contention was that the  evening to give his side of the political  Issues of the day.

Opening his remarks, Mr. Sutherland stated that politically in the past  he haft voted Conservative as many  times as he had voted Liberal. His  particularc hobby has been municipal  work, having been elected mayor of  Kelowna thirteen times by acclamation. On this occasion he made up  his mind to enter the field for federal  honors because he felt that the present Government was wholly given  over to the .manufacturers' interests,  And the interests of that particular  class of capitalists who reap, fortunes  by getting concessions at the expense  'himself and his old-time and respected  friend, Mr. MacKelvie, nor between  the Conservative and Liberal cpartles;  It is a fight between the great privileged class of the East���������������������������the manufacturers' Association���������������������������and the common  people. .  Referring to the tariff issue, Mr.  Sutherland placed the blame for low  prices on everything the farmer produced on the fact that of the 317 articles mentioned in the tariff schedule  on the free list, not.one of them is a  manufactured article. All are the products which come Into competition  with the farmer and the natural products of the Dominion. He then named  many articles manufactured in Canada  and protected by the tariff which are  today selling at three and four times  the pre-war price, inspite of the fall in  prices of all farm produce and the general decline In wages.  The speaker dealt with the discrimination ln freight rates; the re-estab-'  Ushment of returned men and' the  credit advances of 100 millions made  of the common people, .who seem to,by the~ Dominion to, foreign countries  get slight consideration froni the men to enable Canadian manufacturers to  In control at Ottawa.....        .JJ unload upon.these countries their sur-  Some  time ago,  said  he, while at Plus at wartime prices and to be paid  Toronto   on  business   in   connection |by the ^eminent out of the public  with his own canning factories eltu-  ated-at Kelowna and-Pentlcton, bebad  occasion to Interview the president of  the Manufacturers' Association of the  East, and, as a side remark, he asked  the president why the manufacturers  were standing solidly behind the then  Union Government, and the reply was  that while they used.to take sides In  politics just like the ordinary individual, now they knew no politics, and  gave their support to the party  through which they could -get the  greatest concessions.  Mr.  Sutherland criticised the Gov-,  by the Government out of the public  treasury.- Only Greece and Roumania,  he said, .took advantage of .theJ credit,  and they to the extent of only 23 ml!  lions.

RINK-HAM-  8UB8CRIPTION8  Payments   Coming   fn   Satisfactorily  and Work Well in Hand  Two thousand dollars was the  amount paid on rink-hall building  subscriptions last week, without any  particular-effort==being=made���������������������������by-=the  subscription committee to collect it.  This amount does not, of course, take  Into consideration the amount donated in labor. Naturally some delay Is  to be expected ln these payments being made, but this Is not allowed to  .hold back the work on the building,  which is progressing as favorably as  weather will permit. t Most of the  material required for the building Is  on the ground, and no delay is likely  to be experienced on this account.  The lumber is coming from the local  yard, and from the Grindrod mill, the  Okanagan Saw Mills and the Grindrod mill both making concessions In  price, and working together to make  the supplying come easy on each.  Mr. Smedley, secretary-treasurer of  the organization, ;has opened a trust  account in the name of the Enderby  Rink and Agricultural Hall, where  the money will remain until incorporation papers are through and accounts can be paid In regular order.

"Well," grumbled the Court, "make  the witness kiss the pup; we can't adjourn court to get a new Bible."  He was a brave man who said this  to his son: "Don't run after a street  car or a woman; there will be another  one along in a few minutes."

'The  theme of "Suds" is based on Maude  Adam's famous play, " 'Op o' Me  Thumb." It Is from the dual pen of  Frederick Fenn and Richard Pryce,  two Brilliant young English authors.  For several years Miss. Pickford  had In mind the character of Amanda  Affilck and waited long for the opportunity to present lt In the proper  manner and with proper settings.  Over four months were spent in the  adaptation of the story for the screen  and this versatile little star went over  tbe entire story again and again, until  In Its type-written form It was a photoplay gem.  Not until she was satisfied that the  story was flawless would Miss Pickford begin rehearsals and production.  In the meantime her technical staff  had been at work on interior and exterior settings. Photographs of several streets of London slums were  taken by Miss Pickford's ^English  representatives and' these were sent  to the studio and exact reproductions were constructed in the huge  lot adjoining her dressing room. Several authorities on life and costume  in the Soho district were also called  in and the work was continued until  the settings and scenes were pronounced perfect even to the smallest  detail.

Thursday, December 1, 1921  Control of Our Water Powers  In respect of the proposed combined effort of  the Okanagan Valley municipalities to develop  the water powcr of the Shuswap for hydro-electric purposes, the following words from the report of the Conservation Board for 1918 are interesting, ancl should be weighed carefully by the  people of thc Valley:  "Most of the water-powers which arc more  readily capable of economic development in Can-  - ada, as well as thc United States, either havc already been developed' or arc privately controlled.  . . "���������������������������. Efforts, however, arc continually being  made to sccurc the rights for such desirable  water-powers as are yet vested in the state. In  this connection, of the extent to which they may  -be compelled to pay tribute to those monopolizing hydro-electric powers through control of distribution and supply systems, thc public cannot  be too well informed. On ihis point, Gifford Pinchot lias said:  "Whoever dominates power, dominates all industry.  Have you ever seen a few drops of oil scattered oh 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.uni-.  form, unbroken, nation-wide covering of a single gigantic  trust. There will be little chance for mere agitation after  tliat. No man at all familiar with the situation can doubt  that the time for effective protest is very short. If we do  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."  * <- ������������������������������������������������������   ���������������������������  Respecting the attempt to create, a monopoly  of water-powers of the United States, President  Roosevelt, in, accurate prophetic terms, said, and  what he then stated of his country, is as true of  our Canada loday:  "The people of this country are threatened by a mon-  Opo'v far more powerful, because in far closer touch with  their domestic and ..industrial life, than anything known  t0 our experience. ~A single generation will see the exhaustion of our natural resources of oil and gas, and such  a rise in the price of coal as will make the price of  electrically-transmitted water-power a controlling factor  in transportation, in manufacturing, and in household  lighting and heating. Our water-power alone, if fully developed and wisely used, is probably sufficient for our  present transportation, industrial, municipal and domestic needs. Most of it is undeveloped and is still In national or state control. To give away without conditions, this,  onc of the greatest of our resources, would be an act of  folly. Tf we are guilty of it, our children will be forced  to pav an annual return upon a capitalization based upon  the highest prices which 'the traffic will bear.' They will  find themselves face to face with powerful interests entrenched behind the doctrine of 'vested rights' and  strengthened by'every defense which money can buy and  the ingenuity of able corporation lawyers can devise.  Long before that time they may, and very probably will,  =ha.v-eJ.ecom<_^a^consoliclate<.l=mten^  upon which the citizen can conduct his business or earn  his livelihood, and not amenable to the wholesome check  of local opinion."  The Okanaean Vallev cannot afford to allow  tlie water powers wc have in thc Shuswap Falls  and in thc Skookum Chuck to pass into the  hands of powerful private interests, when by incorporating as a county for thc development of  these resources, thc various municipalities could  acquire and control these powers to the lasting  interest of tlie great district we live in.  Tlie whole question resolves itself into this one  thing: Do we, the Allies, lovers of peace, honestly, earnestly, zealously, magnanimously, whole-  souledly desire peace?  Here are some of the commercial obstacles we  place in the way of peace, or before, peace: Let  us start with Britain: For the sake of empire security in thc East, shc wants to hang on to the  Anglo-Japanese alliance even at thc risk of losing  the support of her colonics, Australia and Canada, neither of whom will longer tolerate the inroads by Asiatics "i'or Imperial reasons." Yet  Britain would not havc Japanese domination of  the = Pacific; nor thc closed door in China.  And what arc thc requirements of lhc United  States? No Asiatics; thc closed door to immigration; protection of thc Philippines; open door  in China; and security of thc Pacific.  France wishes to retain the special rights now  held by her in China; shc wants security of Indo-  Cliinaf the domination of European land forces,  and a free hand to build submarines for coast  defense, presumably against England.  Japan has becn aii apt pupil of European diplomacy. Under ithe protection of the Anglo-  Japancsc treaty, and, while hcr aliics were busy  in the Great War, she reached into China; and  into Siberia and grabbed cherished strategic positions from which she will not bc dislodged;  shc naturally is demanding a continuance of the  treaty with Britain; she wants to hold a special  position; in the JEast; she wants equality of armaments, equality of race opportunity, but will allow no Chinese on her soil; she wants the disarmament of all Pacific outposts.  China is looking for the restoration of sovereignty; thc elimination of foreign "spheres";  no foreign guardianship; thc ending of foreign  interference, and the open door to her devclop-  men, and the right to call her soul hcr own.  Russia is demanding that the special rights  takeiuover by thc Japanese shall cease; she wants  the evacuation qf Siberia by the Nipponese, and  to keep Siberia white.  These are some of thc outstanding questions  which the Washington Conference is dealing  with. And thc nation that stands to gain or lose  most is Japan. She grabbed most from the  spoils of war and doesn't want to disgorge.  Wickham Steed's Summary  What the Washington Conference Must Solve  Here are thc facts: When the war against  CuM-many was waged, thc world was told that it  was a war to end all war. That was thc cry of  llie Allied Powers, France, Britain, the United  Slates, Italy and Japan. Thc war was finally  won by these peace-loving peoples. Then what?  Today, with the onc nation against which all the  peace-loving* nations* fought and bled down and  out, We, thcy, the peace-lovers, arc spending no  less than $4,069,165,237, more on armaments  than was spent by them, the peace-loving nations  prior to 1913. This is more than the cost of  operating thc entire five Governments, including  armaments on land and sea, in thc year preceding the Great War.  What is all this feverish war preparation for?  With Germany put of it, in a military sense, and  only the peace-loving nations on top, against  whom are they plotting? Against each othcr?  This is thc problem before the Washington Conference. History records no meeting of human  minds more momentous than this international  parliament on armaments. Tlie '.responsibility  devolving upon the statesmen there gathered  may well appall them, for into their hands is  committed the life or death of "civilization.  After reciting. ten of thc obstacles^ which are  being threshed! out in the Washington Conference? Wickham. Steed summarizes the probable  outcome in these words: "British policy remains  favorable to thc limitation of naval armaments,  and to lhc attainment of such a settlement of Far  pastern and Pacific problems as will safeguard  the main British interest, which is peace. France  also favors the limitation of naval armaments,  and the diminution of land armaments under  condilions for her own security and tfce���������������������������sccurity  of Europe. Italy's interest is to prove herself an  -lenient of concord and stability in Europe, while  una aggressively safeguarding her own special  needs. Japan, whose representatives here are in  realitv sho wins exemplary modcravion, will  probably bc ready to fall in with any general  agreement and may even earn the gratitude ot  other delegations bv contributing positively to  thc success of the conference. The United States  naturally places all its hopes on the achievement  of lasting results and. supported by" an immense  body of public opinion in this country, will do  everything to smooth away difficulties and to  sive proof of high-minded disinterestedness.  ~ "In these conditions, which, arc the real abid-  ijn it-conditions. of.thc_.confcrcnce. pessi mignj_g_ncj.  fits of 'nerves' are entirely misplaced. There may  be. and probably will be, other 'crises' before the  conference ends,cbul thcrc is no reason why they  should not be surmounted if the delegates and  their governments resolutely keep their tempers  and their heads."  Plugging the Holes  The othcr day thc Hon. John Hart, minister  of Finance, explained to thc Vancouver Province  what the new taxation the Governmcnl is imposing is going to bring in and what it is proposed  to do with'it. One is a tax of 5 per cent on all  monev placed on any racing event, together wilh  an amusement tax of ten cents on each ticket of  admission sold. This is figuring on the basis of  thc average charge of admission is one dollar. It  is estimated bv the Minister of Finance that the  Government will collect $250,000 by the tax on  racing bets alone. This is lo be^ divided among  the municipalities. ^  Another lax which is expected to bring in an  additional .$400,000 is that from auto licenses.  Tliis, too, Avill go entirely to the municipalities,  largely for road purposes.  This sums up what the Government will do to  aid municipalities. In addition���������������������������; to these taxes,  there is the revenue from the sale of liquor by the  Government stores, half of which goes to the  municipalities to augment the school allowance.  Thus far this half amounts! to a million dollars,  which, apportioned on the basis of 86,000 school  children in the Province, means $6 per pupil.  Other legislation was passed which was purely  of departmental interest in certain changes proposed which it is estimated will plug some of the  holes through which income taxes escaped.  ���������������������������w��������������������������� SP- Tr\A-}r?*L~T.'m���������������������������S-jZ.~J~^c-** hi-^r-s^rs.~  JlvZ>1?j_i T^s^i 7"T}>i7Z i c?<*C~  ���������������������������J���������������������������-SC-* &������������������-**r������������������<,;>~������������������tr""������������������->c���������������������������?���������������������������*;��������������������������� ������������������c~*^"  m  f  *-*::  .������������������r rm wirn n n T7 irn7TT*ro W  lil.cVij)muOi;'fH'  Tfl  iS'Si*  1^  Colle&ions  Through the medium of it*  Branches and Agencies in Gut-  ada, Great Britain, France, the  United States, Mexico, and  Newfoundland, and its banking  connections in every part of the  world, the Bank of Montreal is  able to undertake collections at  favourable rates in any country  to which Canadian goods are  shipped.

Jones.) .,  ' The woods and plains were all  astir with the whir of bird wings and  the buzz of bees in the flowers. Spring  had come,, and all Nature celebrated  the morning of the year.  " As the spring. breeze stirred the  branches pf a giant pine tree, it made  a soft crooning sound, as of a mother  hushing her babe.  High up, at the tips of her branches  were the brown'' cradles, where her  many babies rested. They were'queer  cradles indeed, hard brown leaves arranged-in layers, and. between these  the children were held.; c  Balmy_ Spring changed to sultry  Summer! The . g>een*r bunch, grass  turned tawny under the scorching j  rays of the sun. Even the cone cradles  we're opened to. give air. to the seeds.  They were brown and fat, and  each had- a silky gauze wing. Then  one day a rush of coo| air came over  the flat, relieving the panting birds.  This is just what the pine seeds were  waiting for. Out they flew, and fluttered away on their gauzy wings.  Many grew tired and fell by the  wayside, where they were.picked up  hy the hirds and squirrels, put one  was more adventurous than the rest.  He sailed along, apparently enjoying  his journey over the country which he  had watched from his cradle in the  treetop. Finally he fell exhausted in  a hole in the turf, made by the sharp  hoof of. a deer. A' small sparrow,  scratching for worms nearby, sent  some of the soft earth over it, and  WAll.

The moisture from melting snow and  spring rains and the warmth of spring  sunshine sent a strange thrill through  the seed. Down further into the earth  he sent an exploring root, and up to  the surface he sent a curious shoot.  The root sent food up to the shoot  which lifted Its head higher and  higher.  Now might I tell of the growth of  the little pine, and how its roots grew  longer and stronger in their search  for food and water. Summer came  again. The moist green flats turned  hard and brown and dry. No green  was to_.be seen but the pines.  Summer gave place to Autumn, and  the birds gathered for flight. The owls  called to their mates in the forest  along the gulch, and sometimes a  silken rush of wings sounded the  death signal for a gray meadow mouse  creeping through the bunch grass in  the moonlight.  .Autumn changed to Winter and the  snow lay thick over the flat. The cold  and frost hardened the trunk of the  little pine.

Shall it be that through the destruction of the Tariff as proposed by both Crerar and  King, the development of Canada is to come under the domination of the United  States, to be followed by gradual financial domination and as a consequence, political  domination?  OR  Is Canada's destiny to be that of a great free nation within the British Empire group  of Nations, developing her boundless resources of mine, river, water power, forest*  and cultivating her millions upon millions of acres of arable land? Is her development to surpass that of any other nation?  Shall her manufacturing industries develop her minerals and raw materials into implements and goods for the benefit and comfort of her people and for foreign trade?  , Shall she become a self-contained nation within the Empire, her great railways  interchanging, the products of factory and farm among her own people, and her  ships sailing every sea?  Shall she maintain her integrity within the Empire and protect her farms and  factories against unfair competition from foreign countries?  It THIS IS TO BE CANADA'S DESTINY THEN CANADA  NEEDS MEIGHEN.

On December 6th Canada should declare with no uncertain voice that she will not tolerate'the false  trade theories of visionaries and group leaders which tend toward her economic destruction, toward  the separation of her people and the weakening of the ties that bind Canada to the British Empire.

DICKSON  Boll Block Enderby  year, the pine tree grew till it became  a giant like its mother. Its trunk was  long arid straight, and smooth. From  it stretched rmighty -branches clothed  with clusters ' of long needle-like  leaves of vivid green.  No rain sifted through Its mighty  top, and many a deer found, shelter  under it from the wintry storms. Re-  joiclng^tn^its^strengthT^it^roared^a-  deflant challenge to the icy blasts of  King Winter. Hut when Spring came,  it sang tender songs to the smiling  buttercups at its feet. In Summer,  birds and travelers found rest in its  cool shade and in Autumn the squirrels ^found store of food in its many  cones for the winter. So it used its  strength for the protection of the  smaller and weaker things about it.  Put still another use came for it.  In course of time settlers came to the  flats, and for them warm shelter must  be made. So the giant pine bowed  his mighty head to the settler's axe,  and with a long sigh of resignation it  sank to the ground.  Its tmnk yielded fine straight-  grained boards for the settler's home,  and its boughs gave brilliant fires for  the settler's warmth. As the flames  leaped higher and higher it seemed  as if the sunbeams of the countless  summers had been stored up to be  given back In tenfold measure of  brightness.  Back on the flat the huge stump  remained, lonely and* sad. "We cannot help anyone ever again," sadly  whispered the roots. Just then a  brown squirrel came by with a full  cone from another tree in his mouth.  "Will you keep my cones for me, kind-  stump?" he said. "Gladly," answered  the stump. So the squirrel dug a hollow under the stump where he hid his  stores and the roots went peacefully  to their long rest.  ^  mmim wwhi*  .BorBe^BteaJMss  es  ���������������������������At  I  Footwarmera for your car  kaco Electric Jjftwps  Cojemau tamps ������������������ patterns  Woo4 & Coal Heaters  Fire-Place 9parfc 0h*ar4s  Complete ttocjc of Crettcwt Saw* A*** W������������������4f t#   M������������������wlf������������������ Etc.

Mr. Sutherland had his first Liberal  public meeting here on Monday. Owing to the weather and his other  meeting at Grindrod tlie same nighc,  there was not a large attendance, the  time also being early. Those present  thoroughly enjoyed meeting and hearing him, particularly as he pressed  home the point that local needs  should .have first consideration from  a member. Harry Kellett was chalr-  man. Many questions were answered  by the candidate and after singing  the national anthem Mr. Sutherland  left for Grindrod, accompanied by  several Maraites, who took in the  dance there.

Notice is hereby given that the first  sitting of the Court of Revision will  be held at the City Hall, Enderby,  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 to 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, Enderby,  this 17th day of November, 1921.  GRAHAM  ROSOMAN,  "17-4 City Clerk.  Mrs. G. B. Rhodes was a business  visitor to Enderby last week.  AV. Coell came up- from Vernon to  play for the dance on Monday night.  B. R. Campbell returned to Grindrod on Monday after spending a short  time in Kamloops.  School Inspector Miller came in on  Monday to inspect Grindrod and  Grandview schools.  R. M. Edgar, ������������������of Hcspers. ���������������������������Ont., is  spending the winter in Grindrod with  his son,- S. M. Edgar.  The school children are now practicing for . their .annual Xmas. tree  entertainment, to be held on Dec. 22,  and by all indications.cit will be as  successful as usual.  Mr. Sutherland of Kelowna gave a  very intersting address at the G. F.  Hall on Monday evening. About 150  people attended. Mr. Sutherland said  it was the largest meeting he .had n"ad  the pleasure of addressing outside of  the four big cities. After congratulating the people of Grindrod on  having so fine a hall, he touched on a  very interesting address at the G. F.  After the address, the rest of the evening was spent in dancing.  A sneak thief broke into McAusland & Spence's store on Monday  evening and stole $13���������������������������$6 that was  donated to the children's Xmas ..tree  and $7 which was given to the Jas.  Lidstone benefit purse, who was recently burned out. The sneak tried  to open the till but luckily he didn't  understand the combination. The  money=stolen^-w.as^Jabelled,_^sho_win_g_  for what it was intended, which  makes the crime the more reprehensible.  A case which has no parallel ift  Canadian jurisprudence came before  Chief Justice Hunter at the fall assizes at Kamloops some days ago,  when J. A. Carlin and E. Stickland  sued for the value of 10 yearlings,  11 one-year-olds, '13 jthree-year-olds  and two milch cows, which they alleged were poisoned in November  last by a dangerous substance purchased as salt from the defendants,  G. McAusland and C. Spence, storekeepers at Grindrod. A verdict for  the plaintiffs was given, tho amount  to be assessed by the registrar of  the court.  This so-called salt was sent by the  plaintiffs to the Dominion analyst at  Ottawa, who gave it as his opinion  that it was nitrate of soda. Dr.. Bell,  veterinary surgeon, stated that a  piece the size of a walnut was sufficient to cause the death of a steer,  and it was stated by another veterinary that from a half to one ounce  would be a fatal dose.  Defendants, according to their  pleadings, stated that they - had no  knowledge of the stuff outside the  usage of trade, and had taken it over  as salt from their predecessor in the  business, and_not knowing its dangerous substance.
