The first business meeting of the  1914 Council was held on Monday  evening, Mayor Barnes in the chair,"  and Aldermen Grant,: Dill, Mack,  Murphy and Robinson present. This  is the youngest aldermanic board  that has ever gathered , around the  corporation table. The Mayor and  City Clerk are the only members  wearing anything in the shape of face  decorations. Three of the aldermen  have never had any experience in  municipal work, and Aldermen Grant  and Murphy have had but-one years  However; it is refreshing-to see the  eagerness and thoroughness with  which .all hands tackle any business  coming before the board, and it is a  certainty that they will quickly get  down to business and the outlook  for a good season of������������������ civic work is  very bright.  Aid.     Murphy's    statutory   -papers  .were received,and-he took-'hisseat. -.  The first   business Rafter the7 adoption of the minutes of the last meeting of the" old " council,' was the' consideration of.an agreement placed be-  fore-the council by Mr. Matthews, of  ���������������������������Messrs. Cummins &    Agnew-j .city engineers, who sought' to renew<the con-"  tract. existing    between-them and-the  City   last     year.        The   agreement  is one that   is   most 'equitable, and  gives the city the services of this .engineering   firm  'if there is any work  desired    by   the    city   of them, at a  figure much    less   than   would otherwise be paid for surh 'services, and it  is open for the city to do such work  as the council sees fit without calling  upon the engineers.     After some discussion'the matter was laid over until .Tuesday    afternoon  when all parties met and went into it section by.  section before signing up.

He regretted having  to    appear   before , new men on the  ���������������������������  council with a matter that concerned  the old council.    He    had received a   ������������������  notice from the clerk asking the telephone company to  -remove a certain  guy-pole on Salmon    Arm-road,  and  had replied that" the request would be  .  complied      with    provided    the   city ;  would undertake in writing to defray;,  the cost of such   removal.     He said  ":  he never had   received the second notice from   the    city clerk giving, him __  a certain number of days 'in which to  have the pole removed.    .The-pole in5'  question had been-cut down'by order"  of the city, and he now "requested the' .��������������������������� ���������������������������  city- to -bear the - cost, of .replacing -it.:.-,", -  ���������������������������He,.admitted that..the "pole was'1 too.-*> "  nearythe line -Pole,, and- said if .rty had;V;-;  been a-trunk road;he would .have had ij-v;  the pole placed .'25 .

The clerk was questioned.   - He told  of the order issued by the "council to  him to   request    the   telephone com- "��������������������������� '  pany,  the Okanagan  Saw Mills com:" "  pany and the    Enderby school board  to set their poles   back to the street  line and to remove   the fence off the -  street.     All parties   except the tele-'  phone   company   promptly    complied  with the request.      A   second notice  had been mailed to    Manager Dobie,  at Vernon, but no attention had been  paid to this notice, and the pole was  ordered  removed by  the chairman of  the board of works with the sanction  of=the-cbuncilr-and^the-constable-had=:=====  carried*out these instructions.  After some discussion, in which all  members expressed a lack of knowledge of the facts in the case, it was  moved by Aldermen Murphy and Dill ���������������������������  that a committee be appointed to in- ���������������������������  vestigate and to report at the next  regular meeting. Committee: Grant,  Murphy and Dill.  Kenneth Glen appeared before the  council to request a reduction in the  past year's water rate for the Presbyterian Church, which had been allowed to become in arrears, owing to  some misunderstanding. The account now stood at 319.90. On motion of Aldermen Grant and Dill the  account was reduced to $18.  Moved by Aid. Dill, seconded by  Aid. Mack that the water rate to all  churches be made the same as the  shop rate���������������������������$1 per monthf Carried.  Mr. Glen renewed his claim for half  the cost of a line fence between the  cemetery property and the Glen property. He also stated that a. few of  the fence posts had been burned out  at the time of clearing the cemetery.  The rhairman of the graveyard committee was requested to investigate  and 'report as to the amount of damage done. The line-fence claim was  not allowed.  Plans were discussed for the repair of the water head, and the matter laid over.  [Continued on last pace]  Get your bread tickets at Joe's.

JANUARY 29; 1914  PROPERTY   JURISDICTION  There seems to be a question 01  doubt as to who shall have jurisdiction over the old public school building. The Board of School Trustees  appear to believe the jurisdiction  rests with them, and yet the property is deeded to the City, and the  only body holding jurisdiction over  city property is the City Council.  We bring this question up because  there is now before the school board  an application for a lease on the  school property from the Enderby  Athletic Association, and if the  school board is not legally entitled  to hold jurisdiction over the property  a lease from them might lead to unnecessary complications.  The powers of school boards were enlarged by amendment to the Municipal  Act in 1918, under  which they now are  given   power    "to   acquire,  purchase,  J-eaaa^^evpvQpriate^ ancLJiolcLJands^Qr.  buildings for .school purposes, and to  sell or otherwise dispose of such lands  or buildings." But this docs not give  the board power over lands or buildings  they have not acquired and do not hold  the title to.  The Enderby School property is all in  the name of the City, and the only  person that can ffive lc:.,'a! papers on  ~any "property is the person "or"corporation holding the deed thereto, or his or  its legal representative. The, school  board cannot presume to be the City's  legal representative it this respect.  Property of the City, whether it be  property that has been used for  school purposes, is thc City Hall, the  recreation ground or the streets,  rests in the name of the City and the  City only, and the only body having  any legal right to dispose of any  such property in any way whatsoever  should be thc official representatives  of the City���������������������������the City Council.  If the B.iard of School Trustees assumes the jurisdiction over the old  school property at this time, and the  assumption is not questioned, we can  foresee an unending amount of  trouble likely to arise in the future.  There cannot be two heads to a  municipal system, and the only head  responsible to the people for City  property is the mayor and aldermen.  We do not understand, nor would  we lead others to understand, that  there is any conflict between the City  Council and Board oi School Trustees  over the question of jurisdiction, nor  is there likely to be. It is important, however, to avoid complications  that might easily lead to conflict.  In drawing attention to what appears to be an error in the policy of  the Enderby Growers' Association in  having entered into' a general retail  business in flour, feed, etc., we do  not desire to discourage the venture,  but merely to point out thc weakness  of the policy. The Agricultural Associations Act, under which the Enderby Growers' Association is- incorporated, was' framed solely with the  object of providing Government' assistance to agriculturists who are  prepared to help themselves,'"by encouraging them to ro-operate under  the Act and work together for the  assistance .. of each and all. The  scope of the growers', association is  limited by the Act under which- the  association is incorporated.' That  Act permits the selling of flour and  feed, etc., to patrons of the association���������������������������not to the general' public or to  anyone not a member (patron) of the  association. Some " have confused  this word "patron" with the word as  commonly interpreted in business,  and claim that anyone buying a sack  of flour from the association is a pa-  tronf But this cannot be the meaning of the Act. To interpret it thus  is to defeat the prime purpose of the  Act. More than this, it is in. a  measure using- the Government as a  silent partner in a business to go in  to competition with the regularly li  censed business houses.  .-This,we ���������������������������feel ���������������������������convinced .is..not-the -  patrons of the association���������������������������those  willing to share in the responsibilities of the organization as well as  in its privileges. If an organization  is not good enough to become a member" of for the advantages it gives,  and for the help it is to agriculturists and the community in general,  it should not be so good as to give  to all and sundry these privileges  for nothing.  The purposes for which an associa-  tian may be incorporated under the  Act are: "The manufacturing of  cheese, butter, cider, jams and spray  mixtures, and the drying and canning of fruit and vegetables; the  keeping of swine, and the manufacture and sale of the various products  resulting therefrom; the dealing in  poultry, eggs, milk, cream and all  other agricultural and horticultural  products and in supplies required by  patrons of such association; the dealing in flour, feed, fertilizer, spray  materials *and their accessories, and  in foods of all kinds for farm stock  for the purpose of supplying the  patrons of the association;���������������������������,the erection and maintenance of a cold storage plant and the sale of ice, and for  any purpose which may be approved  by the Minister having for its object  the development of agriculture."  It will be noted that this amended  Act is similar in all respects to the  Act under which Farmers' Institutes  are inrorporated, but we have yet to  see a Farmers' Institute that will  sell to any but Institute members.  FORESTRY    FACTS  intention of the Act, and we cannot see in thc Act anything to warrant placing upon it this interpretation. The Government, is prepared  to lend its assistance to these associations of growers, hoping by this  assistance to prove to the growers  that in combined effort lies the root  of sure success. But these advantages are intended for the members or  Rabbits have damaged or killed  thousands of young forest trees in the  West by eating the bark around the  base of the stems. -  Circular saws of paper are being  increasingly used in England for the  cutting of thin plates of wood. Veneers made in this way are so smooth  that cabinetrmak ers ' can use them  without  further  planing.  It is a common superstition among  the woodsmen of eastern Canada that  many 'dead-' larch trees have come to  life again. The trees noticed were  not really dead, however, but had appeared so because they had been entirely stripped of their leaves by the  larvae of the larch saw-fly. The  tamarack is a valuable tree because  of its ability to grow in swamps, and  its wood is highly esteemed for fuel,  ties, fence-posts and construction  work generally. Yet, through the  continued ravages of'the larch saw-  fly over one-half the tamarack in  Eastern Canada has already been destroyed.  Australian gum-trees have attained  the enormous height; of 480 feet,  which is 140 feet higher than the  most gigantic sequoias in California,  and twice as high as the great firs of  British Columbia.

W. W, CORY,  '' Deputy Minister of the Interior,  N.B.���������������������������Unauthorized    publication   oi  this advertisement    will not be paid  for. .  It is"intimated by those in a position to know that the Attorney-General contemplates bringing down legislation at the present session of. the  local legislature looking to the improvement of the land registry Act.'  Just what this improvement will  consist of has not been stated. That  there is much room for improvement,  all who have had any dealings with  the land registry offices will readily  agree. The handling of the registry  business of the interior, at least, has  been as .poor as possible. It could  not have been worse. The fault may  have- been with the system. ��������������������������� We understand the . antequated system of  the gold-fever days is still in vogue.  We do not know-as to this.- -We do  know that up to within a month or  two ago, a document sent from this  section to the registry office at Kam-  Ioop required nine months or a year  to be returned duly- registered. And  we do know that there are men  in this district who declare positively  that they will not touch another  piece of property until there is less  delay and less worry in connection  with getting papers through the land  registry office.  .Perhaps the present registry system -is not so'much to blame ior this  condition as the apparent lack of  system in handling the system in the  registry office. ' There can be no excuse for some of the cases that have  come'' to light in connection with the  handling of Enderby papers. And it  should' not be . inferred that Enderby  papers are handled with any less  alacrity or precision than the papers  haling from any other locality.  ��������������������������� Recently it was," reported that the  registry offices had caught up-.with  work under which ' they ' were buried  for a year or, more. We hope this is  true. But we have a case in point  that would not indicate a3 much, i  It used to be" the case that if a  transfer document* were-sent to Kamloops . for registry accompanied by  the registry fee, a receipt for the fee  and the document" would promptly  come back.;but, the duplicate of the  registered document would not" be re-'  turned for some months later. If  the document passed the eagle eye of  is just possible that it is just such  mixing of figures that is responsible  for more delays and more bad language than the system they propose  to improve.  While great improvement can no  doubt be made in the land registry  Act, there is far more to be done in  the selecting and training of men to  interpret the Act and handle the  business of the registry office. The  whole policy of the registry office is  obsolete and hide-bound. It is un-  elastic, unbusinesslike, and has been  proved to be utterly incapable of  handling the business in a progrcs  si've way. To claim that the system  is all that is to be desired, and yet  have t'o admit that it requires months  to get a document through that  should require only as many days, is  quite absurd. Any' system that re-  quires' more than ten days or two  weeks to get a document registered  is unfit for modern business and  should be discontinued, and any  registrar that permits his staff to let  the work oi his office get weeks and  months behind is lacking in something that makes him unfit to handle  the office. If we haven't the most  capable men in the registry office the  results are sure to be detrimental to  the progress of the Province, and the  longer incompetency is permitted, the  more difficult will it be to right  matters.,  to sell  List it with me.  . ..   -   If  you  want to  buy land, see me.

Here is a sample of the alacrity of  present day registration: A certain  mortgage was* sent to Kamloops for  registration the last week in December. A week later the solicitor having the paper in hand was in Kamloops and was told by the registrar  that the document had been registered  and the duplicate copy returned to  him. On his arrival home it was'  found that the paper had not been  returned. The registrar was duly  notified, and on Jan. ICth the solicitor was notified that "1986B,  mortgage is registered; we have not  yet mailed- you the duplicate, but  shall do so shortly."  A week later the solicitor wired to  know when the paper "1986B" would  be forthcoming. On Jan. 26th the  duplicate document No. 1896E came  hack with a note from the registrar  as follows: "I presume that this is  the mortgage which you require as  we have not reached No 1986B as  stated in your wire."  Anyone having had business with  the registry office knows Without being reminded that mistakes, do occur, and the numbering of the document referred to as M198GE" in one  letter and as "1896E" in the next is  not such a serious blunder, though it  Prices per setting exhibition ?Ld  pedigree laying strains on ap^lica-  cation.

A broken bot*e of sulphuric acid filled  the air -with an odor that was unspeakable, and the cruel hands of the.conductor registered his disapproval by a brutal blow on the ear of the young  disciple of science, which made him deaf for life.

TAKE UP THE WOMEN'S  CAUSE  W. J. Wopds  The chief business of a convention  is, according to the Victoria Colonist  to be conventional, and with one exception, it says, the Conservative  convention held last week at Victoria  did not offend in any way the strictest proprieties of political conventions. The exception naturally had to  do with the gentler sex. To be un.  conventional would be impossible  without the help of women. Thus the  Conservatives took up the case of  their sisters, not in arms, but in  pleading the cause of the widows and  orphans who are affected by the present Dower Act as it now stands on  the provincial statutes. This Act  has for a long time been a cause- of  resentment on the part of the women  of the province and the convention  voiced this resentment in passing a  resolution which urged the passage of  legislation which would more fully  protect the rights of widows and orphans whether husbands and fathers  die ihtestate or not. -  Under the Cower Act, which has always been a disgrace to modern civilization, a man can will the whole of  his property away-from "his wife and  children and leave them entirely des.  titute. Under this Act, if a man  dies without a will, and leaves a wife  and children, the wife gets one-third  oi the personal estate absolutely, but  she gets only the use of one-third of  the real estate for life.     In this coun  try nearly all property is real estate,  and the use of one-third generally  amounts to nothing.  If a man dies without a will, leaving a wue and no children, the wife  gets half of everything, and the relatives of the husband get the other  half. If the husband has no relatives thc other half goes to thc government.  A woman has no right to her own  children during the life of the husband. She may apply to the Supreme Court for the custody of thc  children, and tho court may give  them to her if it sees fit, but she  must show that there is some objection to the husband. In any case,  very few women have the money to  fight a case in    the   Supreme Court.  No woman, except one who is the  head of a family (that is' to say, a  widow with children) can homestead  or pre-empt land anywhere in Western  Canada.  There is no dower law to prevent  the husband selling the family property without the consent of the wife.  The legal position assigned to a  wife by the laws of the province is so  poor that a   legend   has arisen that  t.  the laws were framed for the squaw  wives of the early settlers. This oft-  repeated story is fictitious. B. C.  law is simply old English law adopted in 1853, and still almost wholly  unreformed; and happens to be worse  as regards women and children than  that of other European countries and  of Scotland, which was founded 'on  Roman law.
