Greenwood's Position
Mayor Gulley and City Clerk
Walters returned on Saturday
from Victoria where they attended the Private Bill committee to
have an act passed for the relief
of Greenwood. They report that
everything went satisfactory for
Greenwood and this city will be
iu better shape than ever. The
bond holders are not going to
tear down but rather build up
the city, and, as the trustee
stated, all that Greenwood needs
is a pay roll and he is going to
look into matters and if possible
get things going. The mayor is
very well pleased with the result
of. his trip and it is felt by all
that the finances of Greenwood
will be better than ever. One of
the proposals set forth in the
act and agreed to by all parties,
concerned is that the $15,000
tunnel bonds have been entirely wiped out with the exception of $1,500 payable in three
yearly installments without interest, In a nut shell it practically means that Greenwood, is
being financed by the Sun Life
Assurance Co., and Manufacturers Life Insurance Co., and it is
their intention to help as far as
possible in order to protect the
money they have already invested
here. The Mayor, Aid. Taylor
and City Clerk should be congratulated on the success of their
efforts in ' having this bill
passed by the Private Bill committee for submission to the
Legislature and ratepayers generally should feel that a great
load has been lifted as the
taxes will not be increased.
The trustee, who is a business
man of broad minded ideas, will
not be paid by the city, but is being paid by the Sun Life Co.
He hopes to make the first
of his. periodical visits during
the early part of December
and he wishes it understood that
he is out to build up and not tear
down the city. The streets,
waterworks and city buildings
are to be kept in repair and
where buildings can be remodelled they are to be put in rentable
condition...     ���       - --

J. A. MacKelvie Speaks
At a rousing Conservative meeting hold in the Greenwood;theatre
last night J. A. McKelvie, M.P.
made a stirring plea for the return
of the Meighen Government
and advocated protection as the
mly remedy for: present industrial
conditions. W. B. Fleming was

The regular meeting of the City
Council was held on Monday, Nov.
21st. Mayor Gulley' in the chair
and present Aids. Kerr, King,
Taylor, Mowat and  Jenkin.
The Finance committee reported
non-payment of certain accounts

of those present had already made the use of suowplough on the side-
up their minds how they would walks and the chairman was auth-

iosity than for information.     The and team.
arguments presented  by Mr. Mac-
Kelviewere those which have been sented a detailed report of the pro-
advanced since the beginning of gress of the Private Bill at Victoria
the campaign from platforms and and the Council expressed their
through newspapers. ��� The only pleasure on the work accomplished,
new thing was the statement, con- Copies of the Bill as amended and
vincingly told, was that the Hon
Arthur   Meighen was  responsible, will be in the hands of the Council
for the great disarmament meeting  during.tho   present   week.     The
at Washington
Mr. MacKelvie expressed his
pleasure at seeing so.large a meeting and especially congratulated
the ladies on the interest they were
taking in the present campaign.' It
was the Conservative party who
gave them the franchise and many
Liberals opposed it, he said.
Considerable had been said about
the government favoring the big
interests; but everyone knew how
he felt about having to pay taxes,
and in the matter of income taxes
the big interests were hit the hard-
eat and asked whether the Meighen
government were favoring big interests in making them pay,*the
big., share of-the war, harden.
He explained King's "Shell Shock"
scandal and exhorted his > hearers
to study ihe tariff question as that
was the main and vital interest to
Canada. He thoroughly explained
the National Railway question and
stated that while it was -serious it
was a legacy handed down by the
Laurier administration.
The meeting was most instructive, Mr. MacKelvie drawing forth
enthusiastic applause time after
time. The meeting closed with
singing of the National Anthem
and three cheer for MacKelvie and
Hon. Arthur Meighen.

The Value of Goodwill
In Business Cannot Be
One of the most important factors
in the success and financial standing of a business is its goodwill. The
importance of this intangible, abstract term is clearly proved when
we realize that one large rubber coin-
_ No failure | pany lms compllted its goodwill at
$57,000,000 and a large tobacco company at ?5'i,000,000. Whether this essential commodity "godwill" be valued
in hundreds or millions, whether it be
extended to the customers of a tiny
���Second Avenue store or to the wealthy
clientele of a nationally famous concern, its importance can no longer be
discounted or overlooked.
Good advertising, which has been,
largely responsible for the creation
and maintenance 6.C goodwill, serves
great enterprises. A manufacturer
or merchant tells the buying public
again and again the character and
quality of his goods. In so doing, he
makes a treaty of faith, with tho public which he must maintain at. all
costs. Such a merchant has set standards and made promises for his product. He cannot afford to lower the
standards or fail in the smallest detail
to make good1 the promises.���W. T.

big hydro-electric power scheme which
will not only augment this city's power supply, but will serve the mines of
the Drumheller Valley, eighty-five
miles east of Calgary, with electric
energy, and also the small towns in
the vicinity of Calgary, if plans now
being considered by eastern interests
are carried out. These plans are being developed in connection with the
Calgary Power Company's present
plant at Kananaskis. and would provide for an auxiliary plant to be erected on the river which runs from Lake
Minnewanka to the Bow River in the
Rockies. Engineers have been in the
district for the past two months studying the situation. No definite conclusions have been reached as yet.
The proposed new extension would
cost in the neighborhod of a million
and a half dollars. It would be located about midway on the small river
which discharges from Lake Minnewanka into the Bow River, and the
tentative plans as worked out by tlie
company's engineers provide for a
plant developing from 8,000 to 10,000
horse power during the winter
months. !
At the present time, the two big
hydro-electric plants of the Calgary
Power Company, situated at the Kananaskis Falls on the Bow River, have
a,capacity of 31,000 .installed -horse
power. It will be - seen, -therefore,

Operation of what is believed to be j
the largest electrical sign in existence
has just commenced at London Air
Station. The sign, shaped like a star,
measuring a quarter of a mile from
point to point, serves as a guide for
the cross-channel air pilots in landing at night.
The lights are sunk in a groove'
covered with heavy glass, level with
the ground, so that the planes can
taxi right across them in landing.
The lighting is so arranged that a
huge "L" may be displayed to indicate the direction of the wind.

Robinson Crusoe's Island
Island Inhabited by Alexander Selkirk

Although   Defoe   himself described
Crusoe's Island as being off the mouth
of "Oroonoque," and    thousands    of
miles from Juan Fernandez,    yet    it
seems to be taken for granted that the
actual  original  of Crusoe was Alexander Selkirk, who passed four lonely   years   on   this lonely spot of land
Jn the Pacific.

Your child could have one or even

When the abscess really strikes and
becomes acute, then there is no question about the damage it does.
Then abscesses may not only cause

but tlie eyes and kidneys and any or
all of the bodily structures may be attacked.
When a temporary tooth, abscess
burrows down the inside of the jaw

called the cervical fascias, a very

In order of depth the fou1? deepest
wells in the world are known as the
Lake, near Fairmont, West Virgina,
7,579 feet; the Goff, near Clarksburg,
West Virginia, 7,386; a well at Czuc-

The two deepest wells in the. world
arc therefore the Lake and the Goff,

Vice-Admiral Ballard, in an article
published by the Evening News, estimates it will result in an ultimate
saving of ��50,000,000. Moreover,' he
says, it. means the abandonment of a
design embodying the experiences of
the late war in favor of a design to
be adopted a decade hence, and that
it is conceivable that Ihe decision may

that if the armor plate mills are idle

Britain Denies Soviet Charge
Says    Evidence   of   Bolshevist    P'ro-

��� London.���The British Government,
it was announced, has handed the Soviet Government at Moscow a firmly
worded note absolutely denying the
allegations of Foreign Minister Chit-
cherin that-the British evidence of
hostile Bolshevist propaganda in Central Asia and Afghanistan was founded on forged documents, German or
otherwise. The note declares that
the Soviet reply of Sept. 26 to the
former note of Lord Curzon, the British foreign minister, apart from the
allegations now denied by Lo'rd' Curzon consisted  chiefly of quibbles re-
those localities where the unemployment problem is the most severe.
At the same time, the members
of the boards of trade went on record as being opposed to the dole
system "'.of handing out charity. It
-was felt that some systematized
method of investigation should

e Electors of the
Ladies and Gentlemen,���
A Federal Election having been decided upon, the Liberals,
at their convention held in Penticton on October 20th, did rne
the honor of nominating me as candidate to contest the Yale
Constituency. Having been a resident of this constituency for
the last 2S years,-and'haying-spent' sixteen years of that, period
oh the Kelowna council, of which place I have had the honor . of
'.being Mayor, for eleven- years, the Convention. deemed it," was
.time'for me to enter the wider sphere of Dominion.Politics.
Being'a land owner and also engaged in financial- and commercial business, in Kelowna,-1 recoguise that the interests ofthe
-whole-Valley.are vitally concerned iu the present, election. We
have a great opportunity toadvance these interests by relieving
-both farmers and business men.:from.the ever growing burden of
taxation which-'is sapping,the vitality of the whole country. If
is utterly impossible to stimulate production unless the people.
have an.opportunity, not only of earning a livings but of saving
money ..and investing such, savings in further development.
Taxation is the only method, available to any government to
raise revenue tppay;itsobligatidnsv,;���,..,'. 'V.-V, .'V .

���amounts''to' 3125,000,000.,annually,  on -the National  debt,  of

- . The losses in operating; andVadministration of the National
;RaiHyay8.must.be .stopped -and.' our resources..developed 7by  a7

The whole future of Canada is at stake. Our credit is. being
ruined by our apparent apathy to these loses and ourBeeming.
inability to stop them, In consequence our "production, on
which our credit is based, is being throttled. It is obvious that
if these vast sums, which are being sunk in a quicksand of Unproductiveness, can be saved and turned into the .channels of
production, unemployment can be overcome, taxation can be
reduced and prosperity established.
For this reason I am appealing to the electors of the Yale
constituency, to exercise tbeir; franchise on my behalf. "Let
the dead bury their dead", but let those who are alive to the
vast responsibilities handed oh to us as. the aftermath of the
catastrophic tragedy of war, rise to the measure of that legacy
and unite in a determination to win the peace, which is based
on common sense, tolerance and justice.

"Tke 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 ivhich has shut
���millions of dollars worth of Canadian
foodstuffs out of the United States
"If we are to build up a self-sustaining
agriculture here at home, the farmer.
must be protected from unfair com-
petition 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 Sara
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 mar*
Icet 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.
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 our
products are concerned.
In view of the 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 and 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, MEIGHEN 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
let us defend our home market, our industries, our farms, our workmen, our homes by the same methods as are used so effectively
against us. -..-���-
