Most Enthusiastic Public Meeting
in History of Town.
Somewhat over a hundred citizens, among whom were a goodly
number of ladies, turned out to
the public maeting held in Steward's hall on Thursday evening
when the subject of the incorporation of Penticton into a city
or district municipality was discussed.
J. R. Mitchell as president of
the Board of Trade and W. J.
Clement as secretary were respectively made chairman and
secretary of the meeting, the
meeting having been called under the auspices of that organization. To open the meeting,
the chairman called upon the
secretary to read some correspondence which he had had with
the various incorporated localities
in the district upon the subject.
Mr. Clement then read letters
from the municipal clerks of
Summerland and Kelowna, the
mayor of Vernon, and the clerks
of Armstrong and Enderby. The
letters dealt with the advantages
of incorporation, taxation and
other important questions. The
rate of taxation proved to be
much lower in the places incorporated as district municipalities.
D. W. Crowley, of Kelowna,
was then called upon and gave
some very valuable information,
expressing his opinion that it
would be better to organize as a
district municipality. Kelowna
was a city municipality and the
taxes which were now 22 mills
on the dollar were beginning to
prove a burden. The installing
of a water system was also going
to cost much more than had been
figured on.
W. H. T. Gahan next gave an
address upon the importance of
organization, in his remarks
favoring incorporation as a city
municipality. He was followed
by W. T. Shatford, who spoke
very forcibly in favor of organization as a district, rather than
a city municipality, stating that
it was a greater not a smaller
Penticton that was wanted.
Space will not permit, at the
hour of writing, the setting forth
of the numerous points advanced
by the various speakers, but a
marked enthusiasm characterized
the meeting throughout. Short
speeches were given by Messrs.
Guernsey, Mutch, Nesbitt, Wade,
Stevens, Wilton, White, Miss
Fowler, Messrs. Cleland, Estabrook, Weeks, Mitchell. Eraut,
Main, Baker, and Murk, all of
whom favored organization into
a district municipality. Mr.
Miller wanted to know how incorporation would effect taxation
for school purposes, and Capt.
Stevens asked for an explanation
of the differences between the
terms, city, city municipality,
and district municipality. These
questions were answered by
Messrs. Crowley, Shatford and
The following resolution was
then put to the meeting with
Messrs. Guernsey and Mutch as
mover and seconder: "That this
meeting is in favor of incorporating Penticton as a rural municipality, and that a committee be
appointed at this meeting, consisting of Messrs. Shatford, Mitchell, Clement and Wade to take
the necessary steps for incorporation." A standing vote, of
property owners only, was taken
which showed 68 in favor of the
The meeting then adjourned.
C. P. R. Strike Ended.
Ottawa, Oct. 5. -The Department of Labor received a telegram this morning from Bell
Hardy, organizer for the Canadian Paciiic strikers, as follows:
Winnipeg, Oct. 4. The employees of the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company have decided
to accept the award of the Conciliation Board.
Winnipeg, Oct 5. The strike
of the Canadian Pacific mechanics came to an end yesterday.
The conditions of settlement
are :
The representatives of the men
are to wire the Labor Department at Ottawa this morning accepting the majority report of
the Board of Conciliation.
The strike is to be called off
separately for the Eastern and
Western Divisions, thus conceding the point contended for by
the C. P. R. management that
the East and West are separate
TheC. P. R. is to "use all
reasonable means to find employment and to prevent discrimination against the men."
The strikers will return to
work on Wednesday morning.
Montreal, Oct. 5. -Vice-President McNicoll of the C. P. R.
said to-day:
"We had a despatch from
West last night saying that
strike was going to be called off,
but have not yet had any official
information that it has been
called off. Still we are satisfied
that arrangements to that end
have been made, because the despatch comes from our own
people. It will probably be an
hour or two, therefore, before
the strike is officially declared at
an end. In the event of its being
called off, the heads of various
departments will be able to employ a large percentage of the
Asked as to what would happen
to the men brought out from
England, Mr. McNicoll said that
the company would, of course,
live up to the terms of its agreement with them, adding that
most of them were engaged under a three months' charter.

On Thursday last the local
lodge of Oddfellows held a | Pert^
special meeting to receive a visit
from Grand Master Fulton, of
Ladysmith, who is making an
official tour of tho lodges of the
province. Nearly all members
in this locality were present,
while several came down from
Summerland to attend the function.
After the lodge was opened
and the Grand Master introduced, the brethren present were
treated to an inspiring address
from Bro. Fulton. His address
dealt principally with the progress of the order throughout
the world, and especially in B.C.
The practical application of the
principles of the order to everyday life was clearly set forth by
the Grand Master in his reference to the recent fire at Fernie.
He told how, that after the fire,
the lodge there had wired him
i for assistance, and he had immediately issued an appeal to all
lodges in the province to do
something to assist their brethren and families in their distress.
A prompt and practical answer
to this appeal was the collection
of over $5,800, which was sent
to Fernie and distributed among
the brethren of the order and
their families.
The total membership in North
America is now over 1,800,000,
and the order is growing in
every state and province.
Several of the visiting brethren also addressed the meeting,
after which an adjournment was
made to the dining room of the
B. C. Hotel, where two long
tables, laden with the best of
everything edible that could be
obtained, awaited the visitors.
Ample justice was done by every
one to the good things provided,
and a pleasant hour was brought
to a close by the proposing and
drinking of several toasts,
among them were "The Grand
Master," "Penticton Lodge, No.
51," "Our Visiting Brothers,"
"Our Host," "The Ladies," and
"Noble Grand Bro. Tupper,"
proposed by Bro. J. W. S. Logie,
who spoke of the untiring efforts
of Bro. Tupper in organizing and
building up a lodge of Oddfellows
in Penticton.
The singing of Auld Lang Syne
brought to a close one of the
most pleasant and successful
functions of the kind ever held
in Penticton.

To the Editor ���( Tun Penticton Press :
Sir,���I wish to refer briefly to
a letter appearing in your paper
of last week regarding the foreshore. It is not my intention to
criticise the letter in any way,
but think before anyone writes
a letter of that kind they should
go carefully into the matter.
Tne section quoted by Mr. W. T.
Shatford has no bearing whatever in the matter, but it is not
my intention to state here the
different sections and acts under
which any one may apply to
obtain the right to lease the
water front.
The point I contend is this,
that any person or company may
have the right to apply for a
lease of the waterfront from
high water mark out into the
lake. Whether the applicant
may go back to the mark where
the water was at the time the
crown grant to the S. O. Land
Co. was issued, or not, I am unable to answer, as I have not
seen the Company's grant.
When on the coast last I interviewed one of Vancouver's leading King's Counsels and after
looking carefully into the matter
he agreed with me that there is

wlt'i a triumphant eye. "Waal, hov

David Bond studied a moment, knitting his brows until their heavy arch-
lugs met in a single hoary line. "I

Following supper, which Dallas prepared, all gathered before the cheery
blaze. There the evangelist, auxiou*
over the welfare of the people among
whom he had preached and taught,
promptly began to question Squaw
"You have not told me of your capture,"  he  said,  "or of the fight that
spired.   Like   Lounslmry,  lie marked
the unusual character of this woman
of the far frontier. But he saw further
than had the younger man: With her
father and sisier she was all Grinoesi
and strength, as if she held herself to
be the mainstay of tlie family, yet
now and then unwittingly she betrayed qualities that were distinctly opposite. Like Lounsbury, too, when he
touched upon the subject of her lifn
it was to inquire if she had spent any
of Its years in a town. lie felt certain
that she had not; at the same time his
belief was curiously contradicted by
her bearing,
"I'll always live on the plains." she
said, having told him of the mesa and
their migration north. "If I left 'cm
for awhile I'd learn things I don't
know now, nnd when I came back
maybe I wouldn't be satisfied with tho
shack or with dad and Marylyn."
"Child,    where   dio    you   gut    that
came before  It    Were you  taken  in   thought?" he asked, astonished
the north���iu the country of the Whit/}
Mother-or in Dakota?"
The Indian nodded.
"Dakota?" v
Swiftly the pariah's whole aspect altered. A momeut before, satisfied an
to food, happy nnd comfortable, ho
had squatted down In bis blanket.
But now. his shoulders bent, his chin
sank to his breast, bis eyes grew dull
and sullen.
"Were you in the Mauvalses Terres?"
queried the evangelist.
Squaw Charley shook his bead.
"On tbe Powder?"
There was a silent assent.
"The soldiers pursued.    Maybe they
surprised you���which?"
To answer the Indian rose slowly.
With one of Lancaster's crutches he
raked out some ashes and leveled them
upon the hearthstones. Next, across
them, stooping and using a finger, be
drew a varying line tbat showed the
trend of a stream. Far up toward its
source, in a bend, he placed bits of
bread from the table to indicate the
lodges of his tribesmen. Slivers from
a stick showed that tbe tepees had
been set thickly In a grove of tall cot-
tonwoods. White beaus, from a filled
pan on the floor near by him, stood
for the warriors that had fought Ills
fingers moved more quickly as uy
means of a handful of corn that Dallas had put in bis leather pouch ho
planted tbe United States troops on
three sides of the lndinn campground
and moved thein forward to the attack.
Adroitly he maneuvered tbe opposing forces, with advancing here und
retreating there, groans when 'the
white men felt the fight too keenly,
low whoops to picture an Indian gain,
little puffs of the breath to betoken
flylug bullets. The onlookers saw the
battle as It raged nbout the tepees.
And the flickering lantern, as Squaw
Charley moved it in a semicircle, told
them that the firing began at daybreak and continued until dark.
All at once he changed tlie picture.
Twelve beans were rapidly counted out
and laid Iu rows, and he mourned softly over these to show that they were
slain warriors. Five kernels of corn���
a line of pale faced dead���were placed
beside tbe bean rows. This doue, be
covered tbe lantern with the grain
sack aud leaned back against tbe logs.
"Aye, aye," cried David Bond sadly,
"twelve braves and five troopers perished! Seventeen souls went to their
Maker to mark the greed of the white
mau aud the yearning to harry off the
red! Why do the Indians uot stay in
peace and quiet upou the lauds set
apart for them and not go abroad
stealing and slaughtering? Why do my
own people uot give buck to their
brothers the country that is .igbtly
Once more Squaw Charley stooped
forward and, resting his weight on one
baud, traced the retiu-n march of the
troopers to a crossing of the Missouri,
where the command had buried its
dead; from there he drew the route
southward to the ferry und Fort Branuon. Here he stuck the splitters In a
circle to picture the stockade below the
barracks. At last, rising, he drew Ills
blauket close about him. put tbe grain
sack over Ills tangled hair and, with a
partiug look toward Dallas and the
evangelist, went slowly out
Perfect quiet followed the pariah's
going. His recital of the conflict, dumb
though it was, had powerfully stirred
the little audience, for as he had proceeded with his crude mimicry the imagination of the others had tilled in
the scenes he could not sketch.
The section boss spoke lirst. Not Incapable of feeling, yet disliking to
show emotion because it might be
counted a weakness, he hastened to
clear the air. "Say, Dallas," he drawled, with a survey of the battlefield, "he
ought t' bad some red Mexican beans
fer his Injuus." But the remark failed
to appeal,
David Bond made a shakedown for
blinsolf beside Lancaster's bunk, using
an armful of hay and the robes and
quilts from his pnug. However, the
fact that he needed rest or that his
couch was ready did not tempt him
from the fire. Lous after his host disappeared behind the swinging Navajfl
blankets he sat by the hearth. And
Dallas .stayed with him, Marylyn'a
sleepy head pillowed in her lap.

Sho wanted her old home till she
died���it was only a sentence, yet tlie
quiet pathos of it bared to him the
tragedy of that mother's exile.
"Never a great city, daughter." he
advised. "Stay here, menaced by Indians, among rough  men and  women,

"Perhaps���some���eh���let me see." He
was perplexed. He saw the eager light
iu her face, saw that for some reason
she was striving to compare herself
with the women or the settled districts
and to learn from him the very thiugs
she had feared might bring dissatisfaction with her life. He did not wish to
teach discontent. He would not tell
on untruth. So he created a diversion
by taking up his ulster aud searching
in a capacious pocket.
"But they���they���don't plow."
David Bond brought forth a limp and
battered Bible. "No." he said; "no.
they���they don't plow."
"Ah!" She looked into the fire. Of
a sudden two memories had returned

"I���I suppose they're more like Marylyn." she faltered.
The evangelist adjusted his silver

He turned his back, so that both lantern und fire light could reach his
pages, and. opening the book at random, began to read. The chapter done,
he turned round and glanced at her

lie rose to retire. She put Marylyn
gently aside nnd rose with him.
Then and not till then did Dallas
think of their dilemma of the morning.
The evangelist's coming and their talk
together had caused her entirely to
forget about tlie trip to the land office.
However, swift on its remembrance,
came a comforting certainty in David
Bond's sympathy and aid. At once
she told lit in of tbe necessity of her
father's going.
"Shadrnch and I will start with him
tomorrow," was his ready response.
He put out a band to part the Navajo
blankets. But an unsliaped thought
made him pause.    "You will be alone."
"Why, we're not afraid."
"Brave girl!" he said. Her confident
answer drove away the moment's
vague uneasiness without its having
taken tlie form or the connection he
might have given it.
"Uood night." she called softly.
"flood night, daughter," he answered, and (he swinging blankets met behind him.
HE section boss was thorough-
| ly surprised and not altogeth-
��*>a>Ti er ��"eliKhted at being roused
*��M early the following morning
witli the news that he could start at
once for Bismarck. As Dallas' voice
penetrated the partition he returned
the only reply Ills Icebound mustache
and goatee would permit���a muffled
growl. She did not heur It, yet she
knew how he felt. Tlie previous day,
though a casual observer might have
been misled by his garrulous fretting
over Ben's lameness, she was quick to
note nnd with a pang that secretly he
was relieved. But ber pain at his laxity and indifference was not unmixed
with pity, for to her crippled father,
whose crutches in  the snow hindered
went about her work silently. Despite
the fact that this somewhat revived
Dallas' anxiety over her sister, the
elder girl felt freshly strengthened In
spirit. In all her twenty years of life
uo other morning had like this one
promised her so much happiness.
When the evangelist emerged and,
after a sojourn in front of the hearth,
joined the family at table Lancaster
pined to ask him what he thought Of
their braving the elements foolishly.
Not that the section boss esteemed his
aged guest. On the contrary, Dallas'
evident interest in the stranger had
stirred the unnatural jealousy In her
father's wizen brain. Already he
hated David Bond and had him set
down for a crank. But Dallas needed
a lesson. It was all very well for her
to do the outside duties as if she were
a man. That did not privilege, her to
ride rougnshod over nis opinions or to
rule affairs in general with a heavy
hand. However, he found uo opportunity for questions. She, reading impatience aud mutiny in her father's every
glance, kept up throughout the meal
an unwonted flow of talk.
"Dad," she said, covering his plate
with a crisp, hot cake for the dozenth
time, "I haven't told Mr. Bond all
about the claim���all the reasons why
we want him to take you to Bismarck"���the section boss grunted at
the "we"���"so you please tell him ns
you're going along. And don't let your
coat get unbuttoned or your ears froze.
I lien ted some big rocks for the bottom
of the sleigh nnd some little ones for
your pockets. You'll both weigli so
much that Shr.drach can't run nway If
he wants to, and you can't fall out
Into a drift."
Not a word from the others checked
her cheery stream of comment. However, breakfast past nnd Dallas in the
lean-to, David Bond managed to make
n declaration. It was when he saw
Lancaster take down the Sharps from
Ils pegs by the mantel. "That should
ftay behind," he said, touching tlie rifle. "We are leaving your helpless
girls nlone. At least they should have
lomething for defense."
Lancaster instantly agreed, observing to himself that the evangelist after
nil had some common sense. "Shore,"
he replied. "Ah'll put th' gun back au'
we'll lake yourn."
But he wns corrected with severity.
"I curry no weapons, sir." said David
Bond.    "1 stand for pence."
"Then th' gnu goes," declared the
lection boss. "Th' gals wns nlone before 'tbout It. They wns no snow on
th' groun' then an' a heap more chance
of some oue eoinln'. They nin't no

The evangelist considered a moment.

nothing whatever at present to
prevent anyone from applying
for a lease of our waterfront
from high water mark, and if
the applicant has the influence
and pull with the government
the S. 0. Land Co., or any one
else, has no power whatever to
stop him, for the only right the
Company has to the foreshore, I
am informed, is what they have
under their crown grant.
I quite agree with Mr. Shatford that the beach from Martin
St. to the Okanagan River should
be kept open to the public, and
it is for that reason I am taking
such an interest in the matter.
If the S. 0. Land Co. had leased
the waterfront everything would
be perfectly safe, but the way
the matter stands at present it
belongs to the crown and the
crown may lease it to whoever
they see fit.
Yours truly,
W. H. T. Gahan.
Penticton, B. C, Oct. 7th,   1908.
To the Editor of The Penticton Press :
Our political parties muster
their forces for another trial of
strength. On the platform and
through the press opposing views
will be urged upon the electorate
in terms logical and otherwise,
truthful and the reverse. For
though there will be much truth
employed both in attack and defense, the charges and countercharges which the contestants
fling at each other cannot all be
As this is a time when startling experiments are being made
in science, in sociology and in
government surely it might well
fit the occasion to make a new
departure in choosing our legislators by basing the whole procedure on plain truthful statement of established fact in the
light of calm reason.
True, a fight is on, and people
in politics, as elswhere, do not
"make war with milk and the
water of roses." Hard hitters
will be in demand, hard blows
will be given, and when all is
over the combatants, "like gallant gentlemen" will meet each
other with undiminished courtesy.
But unqualified condemnation
of each party by the other places
public affairs in a pitiable position before the people at large,
while placing our system of government in a false light before
less favored nations. The
thoughtful elector must surely
put to himself such queries as
this:"If half the charges brought
against the present government
are true is not the country in sore
need of honest administration ?
If half the counter-charges flung
back at the opposition be proven
where shall we look for faithful
and able men to replace our
present rulers if we turn them
Meanwhile, in far away Turkey, Persia, India, ancient peoples are asking for self government framed on British models.
Is it then the part of patriotism
to discredit our free institutions
before the world at home and
abroad by exhibiting the bitterness of party rancour at a time,
of all others, when the electorate,
the final court of appeal, should
bring a calm judicial mind to the
discharge of its most important
and sacred duty?      Norland.
Don't Keep Hens
but make the hens keep you by
using a reliable egg food.     I.
Kent has purchased from one of
the   leading  poultrymen   in  A-
merica a valuable recipe for egg
food.   This food has been on the
market for twenty years and has
given   general   satisfaction    to J
those who have used it through-!
out the United States and Can-'
ada.     The  same   people   have
bought it year after year because
it has proven to be  the  most
profitable  egg  producing   food
they   have   found,   by   keeping
their hens laying all winter when
eggs are  high;   and  when  this
food   is  given   breeding   fowls
