Electoral Address.
I respectfully solicit your vote
and influence for my election as
Reeve of the Penticton Municipality for 1910.
Under the strong representation of a number of the prominent ratepayers, I have consented to offer myself for this office,
and in order to let you know my
position on the chief matters of
interest, I give below a few of
the points I consider of greatest
1. One of my first steps will
be to see that Penticton Creek is
attended to at the earliest opportunity in the spring, so that the
high volume of water will be
confined within the creek limits,
and thus prevent a repetition of
the damage caused in the past.
2. I will use every endeavor
to get a domestic water system
installed; and, if practicable, install an electric light service in
connection with the domestic
water system. My past experience for the last twelve
years, both with water systems
and electric light installations
should prove of great service to
me if handling these questions.
Several ��� water systems are in
view, but as my one effort will
be to reduce taxation, and make
every dollar expended return full
value, the system offering lowest
cost and greatest efficiency will
receive my fullest support.
3. A sanitary system is in my
opinion an absolute necessity.
The health of the residents of
Penticton must be safeguarded,
and I will make every effort
along those lines.
4. The roads throughout the
Municipality will receive my
careful attention; and all legitimate claims will be attended to
with work of a permanent nature, and for this purpose I would
advocate the purchase of a stone
crusher to provide the proper
kind of road metal.
5. I will advocate the building
of a sidewalk up Main Street to
the Public School and such others
as finances will permit.
6. I will carefully consider
and fully support any reasonable
proposition for the establishment
of a divisional point of the Kettle
Valley at Penticton.
If these views meet with your
approval and the honor I am
soliciting from you is conferred
upon me, no effort of mine will
be spared to prove to you that
your confidence in me has not
been misplaced.
E. Foley-Bennett.
Don't forget to call on us when
you are building. We will either
give you a price on material or
get our contractor friends to
give you an honest figure on the
job. S. C. Smith Lumber Co.,
As You Like It.
The presentation of Shakespeare's comedy, "As You Like
It," byC. P. Walker's company,
on Friday evening, the 10th inst.
drew a full house. The play
was unanimously pronounced the
best that has ever been presented to a Penticton audience, and
was in marked contrast to the
cheap exhibitions made by other
travelling troupes that have afflicted the Penticton public with
their presence. The management announce that another of
Mr. Walker's troupes will be
here later to play, "Beside the
Bonnie Briar Bush." All the
characters will be genuine natives of Scotland.

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 wil! 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
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 sm 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.
Penticton Boys' Club.
On Wednesday, Dec. 1st, the
members of the P. B. C. opened
their new club room on Ellis
Street with a social evening.
The room has been kindly lent
them by Mr. R. Wilton. The
evening opened in the usual way
with the club song, a prayer, and
a repetition of the pledge. Addresses were given by Mrs. McNeil, Mrs. Thompson and
Wilton. The latter urged
boys to stick to their motto
pledge. The chairman, Mr. W.
McCormack, then asked the boys
for suggestions for a programme
for the season, and an interesting and instructive one was compiled. The meeting then adjourned for refreshments. With
the singing of Auld Lang Syne
and three cheers for Mr. Wilton
a very enjoyable evening was
brought to a close.
On the following Thursday a
meeting was held in the club
room, when several new members were taken in on probation.
Mrs. McNeil and then Mr. Fallis
addressed the boys, the latter
explaining the true meaning of
the words "What is a gentleman." He said that in different
countries various definitions were
given of the word "gentleman,"
but the true meaning of the
word was "a man who never
gave unnecessary pain." He
also said he was pleased with
the latter part of their pledge,
i. e., not to be cruel to dumb
animals. At this part of the
meeting the chairman moved a
resolution of sympathy with
Willie Henderson (a member)
who has lost his father. The
resolution was passed unanimously. Mr. Harry Pitman, who has
offered his services to train the
boys in Physical Drill, then spoke
in reference to the formation of
a drill company. The boys
seemed pleased with the idea and
promised their support to make
it a great success. A little business was then transacted and the
meeting closed with a vote of
thanks to the speakers.
All boys wishing to join must
be twelve years of age, and must
be at the meetings on Fridays at
7586 p. m. Drill nights, Thursdays at 7:30.
Anniversary Dinner and Concert.
The Methodist church was
filled almost beyond its capacity at the anniversary dinner
and concert given by the Ladies'
Aid on Monday evening. Every
Christian denomination in the
place was largely represented,
and a spirit of unity and good
will ran through the proceedings
from start to finish.
The dinner���a chicken dinner-
began at 6 p. m. and continued
until a little after 8, when the
tables were removed to afford
more seating space. The programme which followed was an
exceptionally good one, the opening item of which was an anthem
by the choir. Rev. G. O. Fallis
occupied the chair. Mrs. G. A.
Layton sang a solo and Mr. N.
Hill and Miss F. Orr a duette,
both of which were well received.
Mrs. H. McGregor's fine elocutionary talent was for the first
time displayed before a Penticton
audience. Her name appeared
on the programme for two selections, and each time she was
called back by the applause of
the audience.
Rev. Dr. White, Supt. of Met-
thodist Missions, and Rev. R. J.
Mclntyre, of Summerland, were
present, as were Rev. J. A. Cleland and Rev. W. J. Allen, respectively of the local Anglican
and Presbyterian churches. All
the reverend gentlemen gave
stirring speeches, fraught with
unity, progress and fellowship.
Organic church union may still
be a few years distant, but,
judging from the feeling manifested both on the part of speakers and hearers, the churches of
Penticton are already united in

B. C, under date Oct. 9, says t We have planted
2000 trees and they are all Stone & Wellington, and
we are so well pleased with their trees that we
have ordered 2000 more for this fall delivery. It
has always been our belief that it was better to
plant out trees from a more severe climate than
our own, and last winter's experience has greatly
strengthened that belief. Not one inch of wood
was damaged last winter in the trees we had out
at that time.
We have only about 60 trees that are bearing
and they are only 4 years planted, but they are all
true to name. We have never had any fear but
that Stone & Wellington would be above suspicion
or we would not plant their trees to the extent we
are doing.
Why not plant Canadian-grown stock?
Guaranteed true to name and healthy.

Respectability dwelt at Beaver Beach
under the care of Mr. Sbeeban until
his master should return, and Sheehan
was kind, but tbe small dog found the
world lonely and time long without
Joe. He bad grown more and more
restless, and at last, tbis hot morning,
having managed to evade tbe eye of
all. concerned in his keeping, made off
unobtrusively, partly by swimming,
and, reaching the road, cantered into
town, his ears erect with anxiety. Bent
upon reaching the familiar office, he
passed the grocery, from the doorway
of which the pimply cheeked clerk bad
thrown a bad potato at bim a month
before. Tbe snme clerk had Just laid

enough to strike them simultaneously
Yelping and half blinded, he deflected
to cross Main street. Judge Pike had
elected to cross in the opposite direction, nnd tbe two met in the middle
>f the street.
The encounter was miraculously fitted to the judge's need. Here was no
butterfly, but a solid body, light withal, a wet. muddy and dusty yellow dog
aminently klckable. The man was
heavily built about tbe legs, and th*
vigor of what be did may bave been
additionally inspired by his recognition of the mongrel as Joe Louden's.
The impact of his toe upon tbe little
runner's side was momentous, and the
latter rose into tbe air. The judge
hopped, as one hops who, unshod in
the night, discovers an unexpected
chair. Let us be reconciled to bis pain
and not reproach the gods with it, for
two of his unintending adversary's ribs
were, cracked.
The dog, thus again deflected, retraced his tracks, shrieking distractedly
and, by one of those ironical twists
which Karma reserves for tbe talis of
the fated, dived for blind safety into
the store commanded by the ecstatic
and inimical clerk. There were shouts;
the sleepy square beginning to wake
up; the bench loafers strolled to
the street; the aged men stirred and
rose from their chairs; faces appeared
In tbe open windows of offices: sales

him. Tbe hideous clamor of the pursuing bell Increased as he turned the

uproar, mnde out something of what
was happening and, though unaware
that It was a friend whose life was
sought, discovered a similarity to his
own case and prayed to his dim gods
that the quarry might get away.
"Mad dog!" they yelled. "Mad dog!"
And there were some who cried, "Joe
Louden's dog!" that being equally as
exciting and explanatory.
Three times round, and still the little fugitive maintained a lead. A gray
helraeted policeman, a big fellow, had
joined the pursuit. He had chlldreu
at home who might be playing in the
street, and the thought of what might
happen to them If the mad dog should
head that way resolved him to be cool
and steady. He was falling behind, so
he stopped on the corner, trusting that
Respectability would come round again.
He was right, and the flying brownish
thing streaked along Main street, passing the beloved stairway for the fourth
time.    The   policeman   lifted   bis   re
volver, fired twice, missed once, but
caught him with a second shot in a
forepaw, clipping off a fifth toe, one
of the small claws that grow above
the foot and are always In trouble
This did not stop him, but the policeman, afraid to risk another shot because of the crowd, waited for bim to
come again, and many others, seeing
the hopeless circuit the mongrel followed, did likewise, armed with bricks
and clubs. Among them was the pirn
ply clerk, who bad been Inspired to
commandeer a pitchfork from a bard-
ware store.
When tbe fifth round came Respectability's race was ran. He turned into
Main street at a broken speed, limping,
parched, voiceless, flecked with blood
and foam, snapping feebly at the
showering rocks, but still Indomitably

Now Indeed he had a gantlet to
run, for the street was lined with
those who awaited him, while the pursuit grew closer behind. A number of

But before tbe revolver could be discharged Respectability bad begun to
run again, hobbling on three legs and
dodging feebly. A heavy stone struck
him on tbe shoulder, and he turned
across the street, making for tbe National House corner, where the joyful
clerk brandished bis pitchfork. Going
slowly, he almost touched the pimply
one as he passed, and the clerk, already rehearsing In his mind the honors which should follow the brave
stroke, raised the tines above tbe little
dog's head for the coup de grace. They
did not descend, and the daring youth
failed of fame as the laurel almost embraced his brows. A hickory walking-
stick was thrust between his legs, and

remaining strength to leap toward him
through a cordon of kicking legs, while
Eugene Bantry again called to the po-
liceiuan to fire.
"If he does, d���n you. I'll kill him!"
Joe saw the revolver raised, and then,
Eugene being in his way, he ran full
tilt into his stepbrother with all his
force, sending him to earth, and went
on literally over him as he lay prone
upon the asphalt, that being the shortest way to Respectability. The next
instant the mongrel was In his master's arms and weakly licking hia
But It was Eskew Arp who had
saved the little dog, for It was his
stick which had tripped the clerk and
bis baud which had struck hits down.
All his bodily strength had departed in
tbat effort, but he staggered out Into
the street toward Joe.
"Joe Louden!" culled the veteran In
a loud voice. "Joe Louden!" and suddenly reeled. The colouel and Squire
Buckalew were making their way
toward bim. but Joe, holding the dog
to his breast with oue arm, threw the
other about Eskew.
"It's a town���It's a town"���the old

NOW. iii that blazing noon Canaan looked upon a strange
sight���an open carriage whirling through Main street be-
biud two galloping bays, upon the back
seat a ghostly white old man wltb
dosed eyes, supported by two pale ladies, his head upon the shoulder of the
taller, w! 'lp beside the driver a young
in n \y! ose coat and hands were
bloody, worked over the hurts of an Injured dog. Sam Warden's whip sang
across the horses; lather gathered on
their flanks, aud Ariel's voice steadily
urged on tbe pace, "Quicker, Sam, 11
you can." Kor there was little breath
left in the body of Eskew Arp.
Mamie, almost us white as the old
man, was silent, but she had not hesitated In her daring now that she had
been taught to dare. She had not
come to be Ariel's friend and honest
follower for nothing, and it was Mamie who hnd cried to Joe to lift Eskew
Into the carriage. "You must come,
too," she snld. "We will need you."
And so It came to pass that under the
eyes of Canaan Joe Louden rode In
Judge Pike's carriage at the bidding of
Judge Pike's daughter.
Toward Ariel's own house they sped
witli tbe stricken octogenarian, for h��
was "alone in the world" and she
would not take biin to the cottage
where he had lived for many years by
himself, a bleak little house, a derelict
of the "early days" left stranded fnt
down In the town between a woolen
mill and the water works. The work
men were beginning their dinners nn
der the big trees, but as Sam Warden
drew In tbe lathered horses at the gate
they set down their tin buckets hastily
and ran to help Joe lift the old man
out. Carefully they bore him into the
bouse and laid him upon a bed in one
of the finished rooms. He did not
speak or move, and the workmen uncovered their heads as thny went ont,
but Joe knew that they were mistaken.
"It's all right, Mr. Arp," he said, un
Ariel knelt by the bed with water and
restoratives. "It's all right. Don't
you worry."
Then the veteran's lips twitched, and
thoi'^h his eves remained cl<v>��d. iu

To Mrs. Loudeu, sewing at an upstairs wiudow, the Bight of her stepson

stairs three steps at a lime.
At the front door sbe met her husband, entering for his dinner, aud she
leaped at him. Had lie seen? What
was It?   What hud happened?
Mr. Louden rubbed bis chin beard, indulging himself lu u pause which was
like to prove fatal to his companion,
finally vouchsafing ihe Information thut
the doctor's buggy wus just turning tbe
corner. Eskew Arp had suffered a
"stroke," It was said. und. in Louden's
oplniou. was u mighty sick man. His
spouse replied iu uo uncertain terms
that she had seen quit* lhat much for
herself, urging him to continue, which
he did with a deliberation that caused
her to recall her wedding day with a
gust of passiouate sell' reproach. Presently he managed to Interrupt, reminding her that her dining room windows
commanded as comprehensive a view
of the next house us did the front steps,
aud after a time her housewifely uuty

with the young man, und. uuuriiu: him

him that bis dinner was waiting. Eugene, however, made no reply and went
upstairs to his own apartment without coming Into the dining room.
A small crowd, neighboring children,
servants and negroes, bad gathered
about Ariel's gate, nnd Mrs. Loudeu
watched the workingmen disperse this
assembly, gather up their tools and de
part. Then Mnmle came out of the
house and. bowing sadly to three old

and slowly went up to the porch, where
loe met them. Mrs. Louden uttered a
sharp exclamation, for the colouel
diook hands with her stepson.
Perhaps Flltcroft himself was surprised. He bad offered his band nl
most unconsciously, and the greeting
was embarrassed nnd perfunctory, but
Ills two companions, each In turn,
gravely followed his lead, and Joe's
set face flushed a little. It wns tbe
lirst time iu many years that meu of
their kind In Canaan had offered him
this salutation.
"He wouldn't let me send for you,"
'ie told them, "lie said he knew you'd

���il lhe way to Eskew's bedside,
.loe and tlie doctor had undressed the
ild inun and had put bim Into night-
.ear of Itoger Tabor's taken from an
antique chest. It was soft und yellow
nnd much more like color than the face
above It. for the white hair on the pil
low was not whiter than that. Yet
there was a strange youthfulness in tho
eyes of Eskew, an eerie, inexplicable,
luminous, live look. The thin cheeks
seemed fuller than they had been for
years, and, though the heavier lines of
age and sorrow could be seen, they appeared to have been half erased. He
lay not in sunshine, but In clear light.
The wiudows were open, the curtains
restrained, for he bad asked them not
to darken the room.
The doctor was wnispering In a doctor's way to Ariel at the end of the
room opposite the bed when the three
old fellows came In. None of them
spoke Immediately, and, though all
three cleared their throats with what
tbey meant for casual cheerfulness to
Indicate that the situation was not ut
all extraordinary or depressing. It was
to be seen that the colonel's chin trembled under bis mustache, and his comrades showed similar small and unwilling signs of emotion.
Eskew spoke first "Well, boys?" ho
said und smiled.
That seemed to make It more difficult
for the others. The three white heads
bent silently over the fourth upou tho
pillow, and Ariel saw waveringly, for
her eyes suddenly filled, that tlie colonel laid bis unsteady hand upon
Kskew's, which wan outside the coverlet
"It's���It's not" said the old soldier
gently���"It's not on���on both sides, is It,
Mr. Arp moved bis hand slightly iu
answer. "It ain't paralysis," he said.
"Tbey call it 'shock aud exhaustion,'
but it's more than that. It's just my
time. I've heard the call. We've all
been slidin' on thin ice this long time���
aud It's broke under me"���
"Eskew, Eskew!" remonstrated Peter Bradbury. "You'd oughtn't to talk

"Peter,"   interrupted  the  sick  man,
with   feeble  asperity,  "did   you  ever
manage to fool me in your life?"
"No. Eskew."
"Well, you're not doin' It now!"
Two tears suddenly loosed themselves from Squire Buckalew's eyelids
despite his hard endeavor to wink them
away, and he turned from the bed too
late to conceal what had happened.
"There ain't any call to feel bad," said
Eskew. "It might have happened any

"Well, sir, I'm almost kind of glad

A moment later he called the doctor
faintly and nsked for a restorative.
"There," he said In a stronger voice
anil with a gleam of satisfaction In the
vindication of his 1'ellcf thnt he was
dying. "I was almost gone then. I
know!" He lay panting for a moment,
then spoke the name of Joe Louden.
Joe came quickly to the bedside.
"I want you to shake hands with the
colonel and Peter and Buckalew."
"We did," answered the colonel, Infinitely surprised and troubled. "We
shook hands outside before we came
"Do it again." said Eskew. "I want
to see you."
And Joe. making shift to smile, was
suddenly blinded, so that he could not
see the wrinkled hands extended to
him nnd was fain to grope for them.
"God knows why we didn't all take
his hand long ago." said Eskew Arp.
"1 didn't because 1 was stubborn. I
hated to admit that the argument was

could prevent him he bad struggled
half upright in bed, lifting a clinched
fist at the town beyond the windows.
"But, by God, when they got so low
down they tried to kill your dog"���
He fell back, choking, In Joe's arms,
and the physician bent over him, but
Eskew was not gone, and Ariel, upon
tbe other side of the room, could hear
him whispering again for the restorative. She brought it, and when he hud
taken it went quickly out of doors to
the side yard.
She sat upon a workman's bench under the big trees, hidden from tbe
street shrubbery, and, breathing deeply of the shaded air, began to cry quietly. Through the windows came the
quavering voice of the old man, lifted
again, insistent a little querulous, but
determined. Responses sounded intermittently from tho colonel, from Peter
and from Buckalew, and now and then
a sorrowful, yet almost humorous protest from Joe; and so she made out
that the veteran swore his three comrades to friendship with Joseph Lou-
ilen, to lend him their countenance in
all matters, to stand by him in weal
and .woe, to speak only good of him
and defend him iu the towu of Canaan.
Thus did Eskew Arp on the verge if
parting this life render justice.
The gate clicked, and Ariel saw Eu
gene approaching through the shrub
bery. One of his hands was bandaged,
a thin strip of courtplnster crossed his
forehead from his left eyebrow to his
hair and his thin and agitated face
showed several light scratches.
"I saw you come out," he said. "I've
been waiting to speak to you."
"The doctor told us to let b;m have
bis way In whatever he might ask."
Artel wiped her eyes: "I'm afraid that
"I didn't come to talk about Eskew
Arp," interrupted Eugene "I'm not
laboring under any anxietv about him.
Vou needn't be afraid; bo's too sour to
accept bis conge so readily."
"Please lower your voice," she said,
rising quickly and moving away from
him toward the house; but as he followed, lusisting sharply that he must
speak with her, she walked out of earshot of the windows and, stopping,
turned toward him. "Very well," she
said. "Is It a message from Mamie?"
At tills he faltered and hung fire.
"Have you beeu to see her?" she
continued. "I am anxious to know if
her goodness aud bravery caused ber
any���any discomfort at home."
"Vou may set your mind at rest about
that" returned Eugene. "I was there
wheu the Judge came homo to dinner.
I suppose you fear be may have beeu
rough with her for taking my stepbrother Into the carriage. He wns uot.
On the contrary, be spoke very quietly
to her and went on out toward the stables. But I haven't come to you to
talk of Judge Pike either."
"No," said Ariel; "I don't care particularly to hear of him, but of Mamie."
"Nor of her either!" he broke out "I
want to talk of you!"
There was no mistaking him, no
possibility of misunderstanding the
I real passion that shook him, and her
startled eyes betrayed her comprehension.
