Mackelvie nominated tic nomination of a. A. Mackelvie by inc Liberal constr i live convention at Penticton last thursday evening was looked for by All having an Eye to what should be from the party View Point. Editor Mackelvie Lias Long been a 0 staunch Liberal conservative and Bis service in the interest of the parly surely entitled him to any recognition unit could be Given him. His Long residence in., the Okanagan and his Broad insight into the needs and possibilities of the District especially fit him for the position to which lie is now an aspirant. No mail could be better fitted to undertake the work Laid Down by the Hon. Martin Burrell. Mis nomination does not mean a walk Over for the party lie represents. If ire is elected it will be by Liberal conservative Voles though it cannot he said that or. Mackelvie will not have inc support of Many liberals who while recognizing his staunch adherence to conservatism still have Confidence in his Wisdom and open mind. That lie will be opposed by a Farmer candidate now looks certain. This fact not imperil his election though in this constituency the United Farmers should stand a better Chance of electing a candidate Ihnn in any other Tuncy in the province. If they fail Here they Wen id fail anywhere in b. G. Or. Mack Lvie a strongest opposition will come from straight out and duty liberals who cannot forget the past and Scalf Al Lac idea of coalition As it is camouflaged. A a next monday at Penticton delegates to the uni led Farsi hers convention will gather to place 1 n ? no i nation one of Liei r n in her to con lest lie Riding. is going to mean the expenditure of three or tour thousand dollars to carry on the Campaign Bitt they arc prepared to go through with it. Believing in the Justice of their cause and. That it costs Money to get any tiling Worth while. In is not known what position the veterans an organised labor will hike. If an acceptable candidate can by the United Farmers a acceptable ice Bdl i these parties it is possible Lac will Combine to elect the Farmer candidate As opposed to the Meighen group government. Group form of government if we Canad its once accept As Correct the group form of government it most surely will Lead us into All the trial s and tribulations which have characterized the governments of Europe the past few years. Unstable whimsical weak and Vasei plating they have been one group following another in Power and out again. We ride ourselves or our leaders do in having a coalition government in Point of fact have we we have not. Never have had although we carry the camouflage. We have a self appointed group in Power they represent neither the conservative party As a party Dor inc Liberal parly As a Parl. From inc commencement of what a we arc pleased to term. Our. Coalition government we have had the Liberal party standing in opposition to the Ottawa group. There cannot be a coalition unless the parties get together. This thayo Zayc not done and show no intention of doing. Our leaders May continue the subterfuge hut they cannot Pul it Over. In attempting to do so they make Way for other groups Farmer groups labor groups and the like. Logically if we accept in principle group government Vilich our leaders Are attempting to put Over then we must carry the principle to it s logical end and be prepared for All that group government implies. It is All very Well for the present group at Ottawa to declare it is the coalition government. It cannot get away with it while the Liberal party is not a party to the coalition. The grouping of a few men who were Torries and grits a few years ago docs not make a coalition. If they lil. To carry their party with them they become a group and one group simply makes Way for another. It Mav be Meighen today land Crerar trouble we see in this group form of government is not in the men selected by the group hut in the method of the selection. And further it As leading to indifference Quot and decadence in a a the political life of the Dominion. Men do not follow leaders As hey follow party. Only now and then in flip worlds history do we read of a Leader Strong enough. To held his followers for any length of Lime. And few men will fight for a Leader As they will fight for a cause. The Quot group form of government takes away ail incentive on inc part of the people. They will not interest themselves on anything but selfish grounds. We hear men talk of flip Farmer movement As a. Group movement and the Sanie old labor and the returned Soldier. But the fact is the group to Venini already has been. Established at outlaw a and the electors of Canada do not seem to be much More interested in the legislation of one group than another. Looks like a Good thing a copy of the prospectus of Hie Okanagan Farmers. Milling company a ltd., with head Oil ice at Vernon to which Brief reference was made in these columns last week states that the company a main aim at first is the installation of a for a grinding Okanagan wheat into hour and chopping or crushing other Grain for freight is $5,90 per ton and on flour brought in the freight per Ion is $5.90. By grinding our wheat at Home a saving of $11.80 is effected on freight alone. The Quality of Okanagan wheat for milling purposes is Loo Well known to need assurances on this Point. It is proposed a to Pul in a midget Marvel roller flour Mill made in two sizes. 25 and 50 barrels in 2-1 hours. Thousands of these Mills the prospectus says arc giving inc Ulm so satisfaction and More Ilian filling All claims made for Lliam. Pulling inc Price of hour Al $10 per barrel it is shown in the prospectus that five bushels of wheal Al $80 per ton is $12. And the Cost of producing a barrel of flour is $ 1 go. Making the Cost Price $ 13.00. From must he deducted the Price of 100 pounds of feed Al 3c per Pound. $3, thus leaving inc. A per barrel $10.00. Giving a local net Profil of manufacture of $5.-l0r 1 he capital Stock of the company is now being offered in the Valley. When $5,000 is subscribed the directors will proceed to Quot allotment and establish flu Mill. It is the intention to have then to in operation so As to handle this years wheal crop. The directors arc it. W. Knight if. Brown and r. A. Copeland. Vernon c. 0. Fulton. Okanagan Landing t. .1. Caron and a. B. Derby Lumby Thos. Ward Laving Iii. A a during the first four months of this year there have been 564 new industries established in British columbian according to report. This creates a provincial record. Many of the new concerns Are returned soldiers organizations. Keeping the dividends at Rome when Canada started to sell Victory roads to her own people it was one of the Best moves Ever made. The annual interest from these Bonds coming into every Community has already meant a big thing and Wilf mean More As the sum accumulates for every Holder of the Bonds feels it a duty to put the interest away in such a Way As to make it produce More. The idea has been brought closer to Home by Many localities. Local school and other Bonds Are the sold to residents of flip District and the in Teres t from these Conics am says a Rhomb while the Climax clothing company which has located Al Arnprior ont., has All machinery installed and ready to commence operations on the manufacture of ready made clothing. The Kenwood Mills Are also making an Extension to their fell factors. The Money borrowed on the Bonds is spent m the Home Community and Means further Prosperity. A a it it a following the National Lead local Utility companies Are placing Slock before their patrons and urging them to get into the business with them. The latest to adopt this method is the Okanagan Telephone company which is entering upon a period of expansion in order to. Cope with the increasing population in flip Okanagan and to open up new Fields from which increased Revenue May he derived. The Par value of these shares is $100, am Thev Quot Are sold at Par on terms either Cash or 25% Down and the balance to be arranged 25% in 30, 60 and 90 Days interest to commence from he Date the amount Lias been paid either in full or on the amount paid from time to Lime. A great Deal of this Stock Lias been placed with a Premium of 10% a when sold some years ago. The last dividend paid for the first six months of the present fiscal year was at the rate of 8% per annul and in addition to this some-$13,000 was spent on extensions from earnings. The Telephone company contemplates extensive new work and must have the necessary working capital. At lie present time it is out of the question to get Money from Hie old country or from the United states owing to the prohibitive rate of Exchange and the directors arc. Anxious to have As much Stock held in the Valley As possible As the interest will then he paid to flip users of the service and the Money will slay in the country. The company has a capital of $500,000, of which some $393,600 has been issued. The real property is conservatively valued at $464,931.
