To the Electors of the
Municipality of Penticton :
At the request of a number of
prominent ratepayers I have consented to be nominated as Councillor for Ward 4 of the Municipality of Penticton. I take this
opportunity of expressing to the
electors what I consider the most
important measures for the
future prosperity of the Municipality:
I. The clearing out and controlling of Penticton Creek as
soon as possible so as to prevent
a repetition of the damage caused
by high water.
II. What is perhaps of the most
importance to the people of Penticton at present is the installing
of the waterworks and electric
lighting system. If elected I
will devote my energy to having
the best systems placed before
the electors to vote upon at the
earliest possible date.
III. Another very important
step to building up and placing
Penticton to the front as a model
town is giving attention to the
streets and sidewalks. I would
be in favor of having cement or
granolithic walk on main streets',
to be laid by the frontage tax
system. I would advocate the
grading of roads and opening up
of new streets as population demands ; also, to have roads finished with crushed rock so as to
make a permanent and up-to-
date thoroughfare. Also where
practicable telephone wires
should be placed through alleys
and side streets.
IV. The railway question���
More than likely the Council will
be receiving a proposition from,
the Kettle Valley Rail way within a short time. We must do all
we can to induce the Company
to establish a divisional point at
Penticton and at the same time
protect ourselves and future railways which, undoubtedly, will
be looking for wharfage facilities.
V. All by-laws passed should
be enforced without discrimination.
VI. I would do all in my power to induce industries to locate
at Penticton,
There are many other matters
of importance, but space will not
permit me to deal with them at
the present time. But if elected
I will devote my best energies to
the welfare of the coming city
of the Okanagan. If my views
meet with your approval show it
by casting your vote for
Yours truly,
Alf. Smith.
Will Electrify Okanagan.

Messrs. Warren and Peary, of
the Coteau Power Co., met the
municipal Council on Monday
afternoon for the purpose of laying before them a proposition
relative to furnishing power to
the municipality and to establishing a local tram service.
Mr. Warren stated that their
proposition was to develop Su-
shwap Falls about twenty miles
from Vernon. Electric power
would be transmitted from that
point to Vernon, Kelowna, Peachland,. Summerland and Penticton.
Local tram services would be
run out into the country at each
point for the collection of fruit.
The tracks would be built of
standard gauge so that cars
could be run direct on to the C.
P. R. tracks at the various
wharves on the lake. An electric line would connect the towns
along the west side of Okanagan
Lake, while it would be extended from this point as far south
as Kaleden. Another line would
probably extend through the
Mission Valley from Vernon to
The Council was not asked to
commit itself except in so far
that it would submit to the rate
payers a by-law granting a twenty-five years' exclusive franchise
to the company, provided that
the terms of the by-law should
prove agreeable to the Council.
It was necessary that they should
receive such an assurance from
the various municipalities in order to enable them to interest
capital to the extent of $2,000,000
which sum it would cost to develop the power and pul in the
systems. Summerland had already agreed to the proposition.
Several questions were asked
by the Reeve, Councillors and
others, which led to further light
on the subject. The franchise
comprised a right to erect poles
and to use the streets and roads.
Mr. Warren did not want to take
up the question of rates until he
had visited all the other points
mentioned. A population of $5,-
000 would require about 300,000
gallons per day, and to pump it
would cost the Municipality
about $2,500 a year, the company
furnishing the pump and raising
the water to a height of 350 or
400 feet. It would take 25 horse
power operating continuously or
50 horse power operating half
the time to do the work. As to
the electric light rates, figures
could not be given at present, but
the Summerland system charged
12Jc, per kw. hour, and the Kelowna system 15c. per kw. hour.
He was certain those figures
could be slashed to pieces by the
The expectation was to have
the tram lime ready to handle the
fruit crop of 1911, but he thought
power could be furnished for
lighting porposes by next fall.
They would be back again in
ninety days or perhaps sooner
with the complete proposition.
The Council readily passed a
resolution to the , effect that,
should the company present a
satisfactory proposition to them,
they would submit a by-law to
the ratepayers asking for a twenty-five years' franchise.

In Ian McLaren's beautiful
story, "The Bonnie Briar Bush,"
which comes here on Jan. 5th,
theatre-goers are to be entertained with a charming play in
which Scotch life is portrayed
with a simplicity of treatment
together with a delightful combination of dramatic intensity
and rieh humor such as rarely is
found in the latter day performances. McLaren's tales of
Scotch folk have proven one of
the most successful book
dramatizations now being used
for stage purposes. The role of
the old Scotch elder, Lachlan
Campbell, has been pronounced
by prominent critics a masterpiece of character creation and
one of the most notable in the
history of the drama. A company of metropolitan players
and a new and beautiful scenic
production are promised. THE PENTICTON PRESS, PENTICTON, B.C. DECEMBER 25, 1909.

Build up the Town.
Essential to the progress of a
town are domestic water and
electric lighting systems. Neither
Penticton nor any other place
can progress without them; and
one of the first duties of the
Council for next year will be to
have water and lighting systems
installed at the earliest possible
It should be remembered, however, that, although light and
water help, they alone can never
make a town. People .will not
come here for water and light
alone. They will demand those,
but they will further demand
that they be afforded the opportunity of gaining a subsistence
after they get here. Some few
people are found in most towns
and cities who are content merely to live and spend the money
they have previously earned or
inherited, but their number is
few, and it would be a poor
town, indeed, that had to depend
upon the money put in circulation by them. Neither can the
fruit industry alone build a town
or city. Even if it could, the
area of country around Penticton
is so limited that nothing more
than a fourth-rate town could be
expected.. Railroads help ; but
even railroads in addition to a
few thousand acres of fruit
knds, electric lights, waterworks, and probably the best
climate in Canada, would not
constitute a city. People are required. Working people demand
employment as the first condition
of their changing their abode,
and men of energy and enterprise demand a field in which to
exert their energies. People
must be afforded employment on
their arrival or they will not
What, then, is the solution of
the question?   How can Penticton be made a city?  , There is
but one answer���build up indus
tries.   This can be done at our
present  stage   of   development
only by offering inducements for
the establishment of industries
that will afford employment to
the population.   No man spends
his money more freely than the
working man, and he spends it
right in his own town too. Money
in circulation means business for
the business man, and the prosperity of the business man is an
index to the prosperity of the
town.   Penticton's next council
should do all in its power to encourage   the   establishment   of
mills, factories and every legitimate enterprise that will employ
labor.   The time may come when
industries will   establish  themselves here without assistance,
but for the first few years at
least they must be given some
encouragement.   Free industrial
sites, exemption from taxation
for a number of years, or both
combined, would prove no burden
to the municipality,   On the contrary, population would multiply,
business would improve, property
values  would  go  up, and  the
revenue   of   the   municipality
would be increased.

much that is suitable for firewood. The land is of little use
to the Indians as they have no
irrigation water for it, and, we
are informed, they have only the
right to cut dead timber upon it.
This.land could be made use of
for Municipal purposes. No
doubt sufficient clear ground
could be found for a cemetery.
It is not too far from town for a
High School site and in years to
come would furnish excellent
locations for colleges*, hospitals,
agricultural buildings and other
public institutions. Four hundred and eighty acres is a large
tract, and would furnish sites
for everything of the kind enumerated, and still leave a good
block for a public park.
The Indians are more disposed
at the present time to sell this
block than they ever have been
before. We believe the land can
be bought and should be bought,
provided it can be had at a
reasonable figure. No person
should labor under the delusion
that it can be got for nothing
for the Municipality. It is the
property of the Indians and the
Department will protect their
rights, as it iustly should. The
question all rests with the Municipality and the Indians. The
Indian Department and the Provincial Government will give
their concent to the purchase as
soon as the Indians are satisfied,
but there is only one way to get
the land, and that is to buy it.
Tenders for V. V. & C.
Railway men take as an indication that no time will be lost
in starting construction of the
remaining sections of the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern short
line to Kootenay the fact that
tenders are being called by the
Great Northern for the building
of two links of the line between
Princeton and the coast.
Tenders are being asked for
the construction of the section
between Abbottsford and Hope,
a distance of 78 miles. To the
former place Great Northern
steel is now laid. Another tender is asked for the building of
the line from Princeton west to
Tulameen, a shorter mileage than
the first section. The gap between Tulameen and Hope contains the area to be traversed by
the proposed eight-mile tunnel.
Tenders for this section have not
yet been called for.

"Yes, I see you understand!" he cried
bitterly. "That's because you've seen
others the same way. God help me,"
he went on. striking his forehead ��lth
bit open hand, "tbat young: fool of ���
Bradbury told me you refused him
only yesterday! He was proud of even
rejection from you! And there's Norbert and half n dozen others, perhaps,
already since you've been bere." He
flung out his arms In ludicrous, savage
despair.   "And here am I"���
"Ah, yes," sbe cut him off. "It Is of
yourself that you want to speak after
all. not of me!"
"Look here," be vociferated. "Are
you going to marry that Joe Louden?
I want to know whether you are or
not He gave me this and this today!"
He touched his bandaged band and
plastered forehead. "He ran Into me���
over me���for nothing when I was not
on my guard, struck me down���stamped on me"���
Sbe turned upon bim, cheeks aflame,
eyes sparkling and dry.
"Mr. Bantry," sbe cried, "be did a

She went rapidly toward tbe bouse,
and be was senseless enough to follow,
babbling: "Wbat do you think I'm
made of? You trample on me, as he
did! I can't bear everything! I tell
But sbe lifted ber band wltb sucb
imperious will tbat he stopped short.
Then through tbe window of tbe sickroom came clearly the querulous voice:
"I tell you it was. I heard bim speak
Just now���out there in the yard���that

If be Is a hired haud on tbe Tocsin?
He'd better give up his Job and quit

When that Claudine Fear first came

ber himself. Joe knew It and he'd
never tell, but I will. I saw 'em

"I didn't know that Joe knew���that"
Eugene stammered huskily. "It was���
it was���a long time ago"���
"If you understood Joe," sbe said In
a low voice, "you would know tbat before these men leave this bouse be will
have tbelr promise never to tell."
His eyes fell miserably, then lifted
again, but In ber clear and unbearable
gaxe there sbone sucb a flame of scorn
aa be could not endure to look upon.
For tbe first time in bis life be saw a
true light upon himself, and. though
the vision was darkling, tbe revelation
was complete.
"Heaven pity you!" sbe whispered.
Eugene found himself alone and
stumbled away, his glance not lifted.
He passed bis own borne without looking up and did not see his mother beckoning frantically from a window. She
ran to the door and called bim. He
did not hear her. but went on toward
tbe Tocsin office with his head still
bent.  '__
THERE was meat for gossip
a-plenty In Canaan tbat afternoon and evening. There were
rumors that ran from kitchen
to parlor, and rumors that ran from
parlor to kitchen; speculations tbat detained housewives In talk across front
gates, wonderlugs tbat held cooks tn
converse over shadeless back fences in
spite of the heat and canards tbat
brought Main street clerks running to
the shop doors to stare up and down
tbe sidewalks.
Out of tbe confusion of report the
judicious were able by evenfaJI to extract a fair history of this day of revolution. There remained no doubt tbat
Joe Louden was In attendance at the '
deathbed of Eskew Arp. and some-
how If came to be known that Colonel !
Flltcroft. Squire Buckalew and Peter
Bradbury bad shaken bands wltb Joe
and declared themselves bis friends.
There were those, 'particularly among
the relatives of tbe hoary trio, who expressed tbe opinion tbat tbe colonel
and bis comrades were too old to be
responsible and a commission ought to
sit on tbem. Nevertheless some echoes
of Eskew's last "argument" to the conclave bad sounded In the town and
were not wholly without effect
Everywhere there was a nipping curiosity to learn bow Judge Pike had j
"taken" the strange performance of bis
daughter, and the eager were much disappointed when it was' truthfully reported tbat be bad done and said very
little. He had merely discharged both
Sam Warden and Sam's wife from his
service, the mild manner of the dismissal- almost unnerving Mr. Warden. |
although be wus fully prepared for
bird shot, and the couple bad found
immediate employment In the service
of Ariel Tabor. j
Those who humanly felt tbe judge's
behavior to be a trifle flat and unsen-
sational were recompensed late In the
afternoon when it became known that
Eugene Bantry had resigned his posl-
tion on tbe Tocsin. His reason for
severing bis connection was dumfound- .
Ing. He bad written a formal letter
to tbe judge and repeated tbe gist of it
to bis associates ,in tbe office and acquaintances upon tbe street He declared tbat be no longer sympathized
with the attitude of the Tocsin toward
his stepbrother and regretted tbat be
had previously assisted In emphasizing the paper's hostility to Joe, particularly in the matter of the approaching murder trial. This being the case,
be felt that his effectiveness in the
service of tbe paper bad ceased, and
he most In Justice to the owner resign.
"Well, I'm cursed!" was the simple
comment of tbe elder Louden when bis
stepson sought bim out at tbe factory
and repeated tbis statement to him.
"80 am I, I think." said Eugene wanly. "Goodby. I'm going now to see
mother, but I'll be gone before you
come borne."
"Gone where?"
"Just away. I don't know where,"
Eugene answered from the door. "I
couldn't live bere nny longer. I"���
"You've been drinking," said Mr.
Louden, Inspired. "You'd better not
let Mamie Pike see you."
Eugene laughed desolately. "I don't
mean to. I shall write to her. Goodby." be said and was gone before Mr,
Louden could restore enough order out
of tbe chaos in bis mind to stop him.
Thus Mrs. Louden's long wait at the
window was tragically rewarded, and
sbe became an unhappy actor in Canaan's drama of that day. Other ladies
attended at other windows or near
their front doors throughout tbe afternoon���tbe families of tbe three patriarchs awaiting their return as tbe time
drew on with something akin to frenzy. Mrs. Flltcroft. a lady of temper,
whose rheumatism confined ber to a
cbalr, bad ber grandson wheel her out
upon tbe porch, and as tbe dusk fell
and sbe finally saw her husband coming at a laggard pace, leaning upon
his cane, his chin sunk on his breast,
sbe frankly told Norbert tbat although
she bad lived wltb that man fifty-seven
years she would never be able to understand bim. Sbe repeated this with
genuine symptoms of hysteria when
she discovered that the colonel had
not come straight from tbe Tabor
bouse, but bad stopped two hours at
Peter Bradbury's to "talk It over."
One item of bis recital, while sufficiently startling to bis wife, had a remarkable effect upon his grandson.
This was tbe information that Ariel
Tabor's fortune no longer existed.
"What's that?" cried Norbert, starting to bis feet "Wbat are you talk
ing about?"
"It's true." said the colonel dellber
ately. "Sbe told me so herself. Eskew
bnd dropped off Into a sort of doze-
more like a stupor perhaps���and we
all went into Roger's old studio, ex-
cept Louden and the doctor, and while
we were there talkin' one of Pike's
clerks came with a basket full of tin
boxes and packages of papers and
talked to Miss Tabor at tbe door and
went away. Then old Peter blundered
out and asked ber point blank wbat It
was, and sbe said It was her estate���
almost everything she had, except tbe
bouse. Buckalew, tryln' to make a
joke, said he'd be willln' to swap bis
house and lot for tbe basket and she
laughed and told bim she thought be'd
be sorry; tbat all there was, to speak
of, was a pile of distillery stock"���
"What?" repeated Norbert Incredulously.
"Yes. It was the truth," said the
colonel solemnly. "I saw it myself.
Blocks and blocks of stock in that distillery trust that went up higher 'n a
kite last year. Roger bad put all of
Jonas' good money"���
"Not iuto that!" shouted Norbert, uncontrollably excited.
"Yes. be did.   I tell you I saw It!"
"I tell you he didn't He owned
Granger gas, worth more today than
it ever was I Pike was Roger's attorney In fact and bought It for bim
before the old man died. The check
went through my bands. You don't
think I'd forget as big a check as
that, do you, even If it was more than
a year ago? Or bow it was signed and
who made out to? It was Martin Pike
tbat got caught wltb distillery stock.
He speculated once too often!"
"No. you're wrong," persisted tbe
colonel.   "I tell you I saw It myself."
"Then you're blind," returned bis
grandson disrespectfully; "you're blind
or else���or else"��� He paused, open
mouthed, a look of wonder struggling
Its way to expression upon bim, gradually conquering every knobby outpost of bis countenance. He struck bis
fat bands togetber. "Where's Joe Louden?" be asked sharply. "I want to
see him. Did you leave bim at Miss
"He's goin' to sit up wltb Eskew.
What do you want of him?"
"I should say you better ask that!"
Mrs. Flltcroft began shrilly. "It's
enough, I guess, for one of this family to go runnin' after bim and shakln'
hands wltb him and heaven knows
what not!    Norbert Flltcroft!"
But Norbert Jumped from the porch,
ruthlessly crossed his grandmother's
geranium bed and, making off at as
sharp a pace as his architecture permitted, within ten minutes opened
Ariel's gate.

"I want to sac Mr, Louden." returned Norbert. "I want to see bim immediately."
"I don' reckon he kin come out yit,"
Sam said in a low tone. "But I kin
go in an' ast 'im."
He stepped softly within, leaving
Norbert waiting, and w,ent to tbe door
of the sickroom. The door was open,
the room brightly lighted, as Eskew
had commanded when, a little earlier,
he awoke.
Joe and Ariel were alone wltb him,
leaning toward him with sucb white
anxiety that tbe colored man needed
no warning to make bim remain silent
in the hallway. The veteran was
speaking, and his voice was very weak,
seeming to come from a great distance.
"It's mighty funny, but I feel like I
osed to when I was a little boy. I
reckon I'm kind of scared���after all.
aJrle Tabor-^are you���here?"
"Yes, Mr. Arp."
"I thought���so���but I���I don't see very

"Yes���to know?" Sbe knelt close be
���Ide bim.
"It's kind of���foolish," ta whispered.
"I Just���wanted to know If you was
still here. It���don't seem so lonesome
now that I know." |
She put ber arm lightly about him,
and he smiled and was silent for a
time; then he struggled to rise upon
his elbow, and tbey lifted him a little.
"It's hard to breathe." gasped the old
man. "I'm pretty near���the big road.
Joe Louden"���
"You'd have been���willing���willing to
change places with me���just now���
when Alrie"���
Joe laid bis band on his, and Eskew
smiled agaia "I thought so! And,
"You always���always bad the���the

"���It's hard to breathe," gasped the old
���you suppose tbey charge admission���
up there?" His eyes were lifted. "Do
you suppose you've got to���to show
your good deeds to git In?" The answering whisper was almost as faint
as tbe old man's.
"No," panted Eskew, "nobody knows.
But I hope���I do hope���they'll have
some free seats. It's a���mighty poor
show���we'll���all have���if they���don't"
He sighed peacefully, bis bead grew
heavier on Joe's arm, and tbe young
man set bis band gently upon tbe unseeing eyes. Ariel did not rise from
where she knelt, but looked up at nlni
when, a little later, he lifted bis hand.
"Yes," said Joe, "you can cry now."
JOE helped to carry what was
mortal of Eskew from Ariel's
bouse to its final abiding place.
With him in that task were
liuckalew, Bradbury, the 'colonel and
the grandsons of the two latter, and
Mrs. Louden drew in her skirts grimly
as ber stepson passed her In the mournful procession through the hall. Her
eyes were red with weeping (not for
Eskew), but not so red as those of
Mamie Pike, who stood beside her.
On tbe way to the cemetery Joe and
Ariel were together In a carriage with
Buckalew aud the minister who had
read the service, a dark, pleasant eyed
young roan, and the squire, after being
almost overcome during the ceremony,
pxpi-rieneed .'i uatural reiction, talking
cheerfully throughout tbe long drive.
He recounted many anecdotes of Eskew. chuckling over most of them,
though tilled with wonder by a coincidence which he and Kliteroft had dis-_
covered���the colonel had recently been
mnde the custodian of his old friend's
will, aud it bad been opened the day
hefore the funeral. Eskew had left
everything he possessed, with the regret that it wns so little, to Joe.
"But the queer tiling about it." said
the squire, addressing himself to Ariel,
���was the dute of it, the 17tb of June.
The colonel and I got to talkin' it over
>ut on his porch last night, tryln' to
I'cc'lect what wns goin' on nbout then.
;ind we figgered It out that it was the
Monday after you come back, the very
day he got so upset wheu he saw you
goin' up to Louden's law office witli
your roses."
Joe looked quickly at Ariel. She did
uot meet bis glance, but, turning instead to Ladew, the clergyman, began,
with a barely perceptible blush, to
talk of something he had said in a sermon two weeks ago. Tbe two fell into
a thoughtful and amiable discussion,
during which there stole into Joe's
heart a strange and unreasonable pain.
Tbe young minister had lived iu
Canaan ouly a few mon'.as, and Joe
bad never seen him until that morning, but be liked the short honest talk
he had made, liked his cadenceless
voice and keen, dark face and, recalling what he had heard Martin Pike
vociferating in his brougham one Sunday, perceived that Ladew was the
fellow who had "got to go" because his
sermons did not please the judge. Yet
Ariel remembered for more than a
fortnight a passage from one of these
sermons. And as Joe looked at tbe
manly and intelligent face opposite
him it did not seem strange that sbe
He resolutely turned his eyes to tbe
open window and saw that -they bad
entered the cemetery, were near tbe
green knoll where Eskew was to lie
beside a brother who had died Ion,';
ago. He let tbe minister help Ariel
out going quickly forward himseir
with Buckalew, and then, after the little while that the restoration of dust
to dust mercifully needs, he returned
to the carriage only to get his hat.
Ariel and Ladew and the squire were
already seated and waiting. "Aren't
you going to ride home with us?" she
asked surprised.
"No," he explained, not looking at
her. "I have to talk with Norbert
Flitcroft I'm going back with him.
His excuse was the mere truth, his
conversation with Norbert iu the carriage which they managed to secure to
themselves continuing earnestly until
Joe spoke to the driver and alighted at
a corner near Mr. Farbach's Italian
possessions.    "Don't forget," ha said as
he closed tlie carriage door, "I've got
to have both ends of the string in my
"Forget!" Norbert looked at the cupola pf tbe Pike mansion rising above
���the maples down the street, "It isn't
likely I'll forget!"
When Joe entered the "Louis Qulnze
room" which some decorator, drunk
with power,' had mingled into the
brewer's villa, he found the owner and
Mr. Sheehan, with five other meu, engaged in a meritorious attempt to tone
down the' apartment with smoke.
Two of the five others were prosperous owners of saloons, two were
known to the public (whose notion of
what It meant when it used the term
was something of the vaguest) as politicians; the fifth was Mr. Farbach's
closest friend, one who (Joe had beard)
was to be the next chairman of the
city committee of the party. They
were seated about a table, enveloped
In blue clouds and hushed to a grave
and pertinent silence which clarified
immediately the circumstance tbat
whatever debate bad preceded his arrival. It was now settled.
Their greeting of him, however,
though exceedingly quiet, indicated a
certain expectancy as he accepted the
chair which had been left for hlra at
the head of the table. He looked thinner and paler than usual, which is saying a great deal, but presently, finding
thut tbe fateful bush which his entrance had broken was Immediately resumed, a twinkle came Into bis eye,
one of his eyebrows went up, and a
corner of his month went down.
"Well, gentlemen?" he said.
The smokers continued to smoke and
to do nothing else, the exception being
Mr. Sheehan, who, though he spoke
not, exhibited tokens of agitation and
excitement which he curbed with difficulty, shifting about in his chair,
gnawing his cigar, crossing and uncrossing bis knees, nibbing and slapping his bands togetber, clearing his
throat with violence, his eyes fixed all
the while, as were those of his companions, upon Mr. Farbach. So that
Joe was given to perceive that It; had
been agreed that the brewer should be
the spokesman. Mr. Farbach was deliberate, tbat was all, wblcb added to
the effect of what he finally did say.
"Choe," he remarked placidly, "you
are der next mayor off Canaan."
"Why do you say that?" asked tbo
young man sharply.
"Bickoss us here," he answered, interlocking the tips of his fingers, over
his waistcoat, that being as near folding bis bands as lay wrthih his power,
"bickoss us here shall try to fix it so,
und so hef ditclded."
Joe took a deep breath. "Why do
you want me?"
"Dot," replied tbe brewer, "iss some-
ding I shall tell you." He paused to
contemplate his cigar. "We want yon

Address to Electors.
Electors of Penticton, ���
Yielding to the urgent request
of a large number of electors, I
have concented to permit my
name to appear as a candidate
at the forthcoming election for
the position of Reeve of the Mu-
nicipalicy of Penticton.
Having been identified with
practically every movement in
Penticton during the past three
and one half years, I feel that I
am in a position to know the
various requirements of the district. Having unbounded confidence in the future of Penticton,
provided its citizens rise to the
occasion and grasp the opportunities presented to them, I have
made a careful study of the conditions and requirements of the
town and surrounding country.
I have been led, thereby, to certain specific cenclusions, which,
although they by no means include all the requirements or the
questions that will present themselves to next year's Council, I
think are at this time worthy of
special mention, and which if
elected, I will urge the Council
to carry into effect. Stated briefly they are as follows:
Domestic water and electric
lighting systems should be installed with the least possible
delay* the former on the Bench
as well as on the flat. If it
should prove impracticable to install the systems as a municipal
enterprise, I would favor granting a franchise to an individual
or company who would undertake
the installation of the systems,
care being taken that the interests of the municipality be safeguarded.
The bed of Penticton Creek
must be cleared out. If the
money is not in the treasury, it
must be borrowod and the work
done before the next spring
freshet. Otherwise great loss
to property will inevitably result.
Industries such as mills and
factories should be encouraged
by grants of free sites, exemption from taxation for a number
of years, or other similar inducements.
As an encouragement to the
actual settler who is improving
his property and endeavoring to
build up Penticton, I would favor
the exemption of all improvements from taxation as has been
done in the Municipality of Summerland during the past year.
By this system, although the
assessment would include improvements, taxes would be collected only upon land values.
In view of railway construction beginning from this point at
an early date, care should be exercised that the interests of the
municipality be protected in any
agreement that may be made
with the railway company.
Good roads, streets and sidewalks are of paramount importance to every town and district.
Municipal work, where practicable, should be done by contract
and should be executed under
the direction of a civil engineer
or other equally competent person.
Should the provincial government decline to retain a constable
at Penticton, the municipality
should engage one, said constable
to be employed at municipal work
when not on duty.
When a by-law has been passed
by the Municipal Council, it
should be rigidly enforced.
The best interests of the municipality; I believe, would be
served by the abolition of the
ward system of representation.
I would further state that, if
elected, I will do all in my power
consistent with economy, to
bring Penticton to the front
All my personal interests are
at stake here, so I am bound,
if for no other than selfish
reasons, to do my best for
Penticton. I have asked no one
to pledge himself to my support,
and shall not do so. I simply lay
the case before you, knowing
that if you wish me to look after
your interests for 1910,' you will
come out and vote for me. If
you vote for the opposing candidate, I shall consider that you
acted to the best of your own
judgment, and our friendship
will not suffer.
Yours most sincerely,
W. J. Clement.
