 m  sWtiwm Utt&tb  VOL. X.   NO. 20.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, APRIL 4, 1918.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Regular Meeting of  City Council  Brief Meeting Deals With  Minor Matters  The council met Tuesday evening in regular session, the only  absentee being Aid. J. B. Knowles  who ia away at -the coast. Only  one or two minor items of business  were up for consideration.  An application for water service  from a resident on Bay avenue was  refused owing to the distance from  an existing main and the consequent heavy cost of installing.  The Occidental Fruit Co. made  an application to purchase a portion of Block 42, for $200; This  property had fallen to the city for  delinquent taxes, and it was decided, before accepting the offer,  to give the original owner one  week to redeem the property if so  desired for the same amount.  The Occidental Co. alao asked  permission to remove a portion of  the sidewalk and put in two weigh  scales, one to serve their new cannery and the other their fruit and  vegetable shipping department.  This was referred to the Public  Works department. Enclosed with  the latter communication was a  document signed bv the owners of  property near the Occidental warehouse signifying theii willingness  to permit a railway track to be laid  along the lane. A resolution was  accordingly passed bv the council  granting the city's permission for  the trackage needed.  The C.P.R. district superintendent wrote stating that the company was contemplating installing  some form of water connection at  the wharf for use in case of fire,  and asking the cost of a 2 inch  water connection.  ! The police report for the month  showed only one case before the  magistrate, that of a Chinaman in  possession of opium.  The monthly milk-tests were'as  follows: Norman Dav 4.3; J. Birch  4.2 ; D. C. Middleton 4.2 ; R. Ritchie 4.1.  Aid. Duggan reported that arrangements were pending between  the city and the Kelowna Sawmill  Co. for the supply of sawdust and  slabs during the year, and that a  ' definite proposal would be made  at the next meeting.  Repairs to Willow avenue, Water street and Beech avenue, were  left in the hands of the Public  Works committee.  It was decided to make some  improvements to the footbridge  over the Creek on Water street, and  it was arranged that the committee should pay a visit of inspection.  Aid. Meikle reported having  consulted with the Fire Brigade  regarding their complaint as to the  obstruction ot Water street bv  standing rigs and wagons. It was  recommended that all the tie-posts  he removed from the east side of  the atreet io as to keep a clear  track for the passage of the fire  truck if necessary.  A proposal was approved to  permit the canneries to run thtir  cooling water directly to the lake,  so at to avoid the necessity of enlarging the pipe giving them connection with the tewert.  Will Speak on food Control  Mrs. Jean Muldrew, war food  expert for the Canada Food Board,  will addrett a public meeting in  the Kelowna Board of Trade roomt  on Thursday evening, April 11 th,  at 8 p.m.  Mrt.

McGregor returned from  Vancouver on Tuesday.  Mist K. Fat is, who taught school  here last year, spent the'Easter  vacation visiting friendt in the  district, and returns to the coatt on  Friday.  The Red X committee met at  the home of Mrt. J. Plowman on  Tuesday afternoon. Acknowledgment it made with hetrty.'thanks  of 17 pairt of socks from the G.E.C.  (this applies to the younger ladies)  and a bundle of old. linen from  Mra. D. Hartley.  The Girls' Enterprise Club met  at the home of W. H. Fleming on  Tuesday. Various reports are to  hand regarding the club's sale of  work held laat Saturday in the  Prisoners of War room. That it  was a gigantic success is certain,  but the amount raised has' soared  to such a high amount, according  lo some,' that we are afraid to trust  the figures in print, and hope to  give the exact amount later.  Mr. and Mrs: W. G. Sehell and  family left on Tuesday for Napenee  Ont. They will be greatly missed  in this district. Mr. Sehell was pre-  sehted with a travelling bag on  Saturday evening in token of the  esteem in which he was held and  of regret at his departure  The Rutland Women's Institute  will hold their meeting in the school  on April I Ith, at 3 p.m. This will  be Red X afternoon.

The Kelowna Sawmill Co.'s camp  hat been removed to the summer  site, and with .its new additions  has now quite an imposing appearance. It looks, with ita newly  erected buildings, more like a  young city than a camp.  Mr. B. Kitson was a visitor at  Cotvalevon Sunday latt.  The Messrs. Shaw have gone  home to Peachland for the holidays. They entertained some callers on Fridav afternoon last.  United Growers Dispute  With Graham Co.  Judgment hat been reterved by  Mr. Justice Clement in the action  brought by the Okanagan United  Growert against the Graham Company and the Graham Company,  Limited, of Belleville, Ont* for the  recovery of $16,007.33, balance of  nn account alleged to be due by  the defendants on the sale of a  quantity of potatoes, oniont. and  carrott at well at the value of tome  sacks which, it it claimed, thould  have, been returned. /  . An agreement wat entered into  between the partiet for the delivery b> the plaintiffs ot 5,000 torn  of No. I white potatoes, and the  plaintiffs' case wat that the defendant! had not paid forthote already  delivered and for the aackt which,  it wat stipulated, should have been  sent back to the Okanagan United  Growert.  In their defence, the Graham  Company repudiated the claim  and counter-claimed for $71,294.-  45. They alleged that the plaintiff s d id not deliver the full amount  agreed upon and that they were  forced to purchase in another market and in that way suffered loss  in the turn mentioned. The hearing ofthe action commenced tome  weeks ago and waa adjourned  until Fridav morning when further  evidence wat given.  Mrs. Prowae and daughter left  yesterday for Lot Angelet where  they intend to retide for the pretant.  Automobile and  Good Roads Assn.  Successfully Launched at'  Meeting Tuesday  The Kelowna Automobile and  Good Roads Association is now an  accomplished fact, for with a membership of approximately 75, a  number which will undoubtedly be  increased in the next few weeks, a  start waa made at a preliminary  organization meeting Tuesday  afternoon.  The meeting was held in the  court house, Mr. P. DuMoulin who  was chairman of the Board of  Trade committee which had charge  of the initial steps, pending the  election of permanent officers.  Mr. F. M. Buckland was unanimously elected first president, with  J. D. Williams vice-president, and  P. DuMoulin, A. L. Soames, S. T.  Elliott, L. V. Rogers, D. H. Rattenbury, W. C. Renfrew and G. Monford as executivevcommittee. Thi  position of secretary-treasurer will  be filled by Mr. J. W. B. Browne,  who kindly undertook to perform  hia duties free until the association  had a chance to get onto its feet.  It was arranged that a committee  should meet Saturday next to draw  up a suggested form of by-laws  and constitution to be approved  at a later meeting.  There was some discussion as to  the objectrfof the association and  the amount of the fee to be charged, which latter will be decided at  the next meeting.  It was agreed that the first aim of  the Association should be the improvement of roads, and in order  to further this cause the Association  should be thrown open to all users  of the road8 -whether owners of  automobiles or not. Another suggestion was the provision of finger  posts and other road signs at neces.  sary places, for the, convenience of  tourists.  It is probable that the Association  will be linked up at as early a date  as possible with similar organizations in other parts of the province.  The meeting ended with a vote  of thanks to the committee which  had taken care of the preliminary  work.  Quebec Riots Result in  Bloodshed  Opposition to the Military Service Act in Quebec has culminated  during the week in serious rioting  in Quebec city, and clashes between the military forces and the  rebels hrve already resulted in the  lost of many lives. The rioters  have become possessed of arms  by looting, hardware stores and  other nteana, and several pitched  battles have been fought. Snipers  fired at the soldiers from the doorways and behind snowbanks, the  military replying with machine  guns. Still further trouble seems  inevitable, the disaffected element  showing a decidedly ugly spirit.  Chickens should be hatched  early thit year ao that they will  mature on the fresh green stuffs of  tne summer seaton. Store feed is  bound to be high thit year.  One pair of rabbits in one yestr  would increase .to 2484 at the  rate of aix young ones per month,  which is a very conservative rate,  tome young families numbering as  high as thirteen. This is allowing  for the elimination of surplus male  bunnies as soon as they are big  enough to eat. Rabbits can live  on hay and get along very cheaply.  They provide five pounds of meat  when full grown.  A rate of 50 mills, or five .cents  on the dollar, was struck by the  Chilliwack City Conncil in special  session as being necessary to provide the required $25,000 for  schools and general revenue fot  the ensuing year. The money is  needed for the repair of streets  and roadt, and the meeting of payments an the bonded indebtedness  of the city. The estimated valuation ofthe city property is $708,000  against which there is a bonded  indebtedness of $225,000.  Standard Fruit Box  For Whole of Canada  Fruit Convention Makes Important Recommendations  Some far-reaching effects on the  fruit industry are looked for as  results of the convention' of fruit  men which haa just been held at  Ottawa. The standardization of  Canadian fruit boxes and packages,  long urged in resolutions from all  parts of the country, was successfully accomplished, .along with  other reforms which require only  the endorsement of the government to put them into practice.  The American or Washington  apple box, 18 x 10J x I li inches,  will henceforth be recognized all  over Canada as the standard where  boxes are used, the only exception  being made in the case of export  to countries'which have fixed laws  .requiring a certain size of box.  The barrel alao is to be standardized, but that concerns us very  little in the west, where boxes are  Used for apples exclusively.  ' Another reform dealt with the  "Inspection and Sales Act." The  grade known as "Fancy"is entirely  eliminated, No. I taking, the first  place for fruit of the first quality.  The standard of No. 2 was raised  to permit only 15 per cent, of defective fruit instead ot 20 per cent,  as hitherto. A third grade to be  known as "Domestic," was introduced to cater for ascertain class  of trade. As a concession to Nova  Scotia shippers a No. 3 grade is to  be allowed in addition to comprise  apples too small for shipment in  other ways, but which command a  ready export market. / ���  A standard wa. also fixed for peach, pear  and prune cratea, and a stipulation made  that all packages should be properly filled  at point of shipment, or be subject to rejection by fruit inspectors.  Tbe convention was attended by dele-  gatea from all over the country, the B. C.  contingent comprising President Barnes of  the B. C. Fruitgrower.' Association, Vice-  President J. E. Reekie of Kelowna. Prot.  Clement of the University of B. C. and  secretary of the Association, Mr. Geo. Chick  of Kelowna and others.   v  Well - Known Couple  Married Yesterday  KENNEDY-PETTIGREW  The marriage took place early  yesterday morning at the home of  the bride, of Mr. George N. Kennedy to Miss Ida Beatrice Pettigrew.  The affair was of a very quiet  nature only the immediate relatives  being present. The ceremony waa  performed by the Rev. *D. E.  Braden, at 7.30" in the morning,  this early hour being chosen in  order to allow the happy couple  to catch the north bound boat.  They will spend the honeymoon  at the coast and on their return  will reside on Richter street.  Both contracting parties are well-  known in the district. The bride  is a member of a well-known Kelowna family. The bridegroom returned last fall wounded from service in the trenches, and haa since  acquired an interest in the livery  business of the Max Jenkins Co.  The wife and child of Mr. Trodden in chatge of the Customs Office  arrived this week Jjom Ottawa.  Mr. F. Carruthers a brother of  Mr. E. M. Carruthers and Mrs. E.  Murdoch, arrived yesterday from  China on a ahort visit.  A theft of a suit of clothes from  Lawson's store was pulled off so  neatly and cleverly laat Saturday  that although suspicion rr its on  certain partiea it has not yc t been  possible to bring the offenco home  to them. Two Chinamen w ho had  been around several times during  the day were arrested and charged  but through lack of evidence were  dismissed. In searching their persons, however, one of them was  found to be in posession of opium,  and for this he was fined $25 and  costs.  Fire in the Orpheum Theatre at  Vancouver Monday night did dam-  ago te the extent of $25,000. A  performance was in progress at  the time, but' all the audience got  away safely without panic.  Was First White Family  lo Settle io District  Only One Survivor oi Original  Lawrence Family  Another link with the very earliest history of the Kelowna dis-  trict was severed almost unnoticed  a month or two ago by the death  at Kamloops of Joseph Lawrence,  a former resident he're, at the age  of sixty-three.  It is close upon sixty yeara ago  since this same Joseph Lawrence,  along with his father Cyprian Lawrence, and an uncle Theodore  Lawrence, first entered the Okanagan���the first white people, so far  as is known, to settle here. The  land they took up is next to the  old Mission Ranch and is now  divided between Messrs. Casorso  and T. Renwick.  The Catholic missionaries, the  Oblate Fathers, came in the same  year first taking up the Simpson  and Postill ranches but later moving to the Mission Ranch.  Cyprian Lawrence, the father of  the recently deceased Joseph, lived  only a few yeara, his death happening undei circumstances which  have remained more or less of a  mystery ever since. He was found  dead on the road near what is now  Renwick's place. His brother,  Theodore, then already an old  nan. lived a few years longer,  reaching the age of 82.  Thus Joseph Lawrence only a boy was  left to earn his own living, which he did  by packing over the Hope Mountain trail,  then the only means of getting in good,  from the outside world. When the Lequime  started their store at the Mission he would  make the trip with his pack train three or  four times a year. For twenty-five years  he continued this, until the construction of  a road from the north and later still a railroad from tbe north rendered hi. occupation unnecessary.  Joseph Lawrence had tvo aisters, one of  whom became Mra. Dan Nicholson, former  owner of tbe Bankhead and Pridham pro.  perries. Dan Nicholson is yet alive and  now up north in the Cariboo, but hia wife  died aome fourteen yeara ago. The second  sister is Mrs.' Joseph Saucier, now the only  surviving member of the Lawrence family.  Mra. Saucier, who is a regular visitor to  town preserves many interesting memories'  of the old pioneers, and of the day. before  Kelowna was thought of as a city.  High School Easter  Examination Results  Pete Moore Talks of  v   Silos  All the dairy farmers in the province know P. H. Moore, superintendent of the Colony Farm and  many in the Kelowna diatrict heard  him speak at the B. C. Dairymen's  convention held last summer. The  following is a brief summary from  a recent article of his ublished in  the Daily Province:���  "Happy ia the dairyman whe today finds himself in posession of a  silo. The silo stood the test when  mill feeds ranged from $22 to $30  per ton. It it not the matter of  prices which concerns the feeder  to-day, the question is whether he  can procure grain feed of any description. There should be a silo  on every farm, large or amall. The  silo was not only meant for the  corn but it is equally useful tor  alfalfa, clover, oats, peat and vetches &c. Atk the men who have  silos if they would do without them  now. They need not be expensive  articles to conatruot. For full particulars get Bulletin 66, 'Silos and  Silage', and plan to build and fill  a silo thia year.  H.

Category B" men  are liable for overseas, but not for  combatant service. Tliey are being called out because of the necessity of securing more men for  railway construction and similar  service.  "A military demand for men for  railway construction and othr-r  similar work has aiisen and it is  therefore become necessary to draft  all men in medical category B' in  respect of whom no other grounds  (or exemption exist" savs the  official memorandum.  "The military service council is  therefore issuing instructions to  registrars to take immediate steps  to call up such men. Under the  procedure heretofore adopted,  questions arising in regard to the  exemption of men in medical category "B" on other grounds were  posted until men in the same category should be called up, and these  men as well as their employers aid  relatives will therefore be given an  opportunity of presenting claims  for their exemption.  The applicant for exemption will  be required to state his case before  the tribunals and if the claim is  disallowed the machinery for appeals will be the same as formerly.  It will probably be a couple of  months before the class would  actually be called to the colors.  According to the classification of  in class one affected by the Military Service Act, the B.C registrar's  records show that there are in the  province 1440 "B" men, 1102 in  class "C", 298 class "D" and 2962  in class "E". ���  French General to Com  mand West Front  The French end British governments, according to the Morning  Post, have decided to appoint  General Foch commander of the  Allied armies on the western front  during the present operations.  The step was taken, the paper  says, in order to obviate the difficulties due to the mixing up of British  and French troops on various parts  of the tine.  Field Martial Haig, it is said, concurs fully in the appointment of  General Foch.  This means the unification of all  the armies opposing the Germans  a step vvliich the American and  French military mtn long have  urged and which, apparently has  been brought about by recognition  of the imperative demand of con  tentrated effort to hurl back the  gigantic thrust of the enemy in  France.

The  combined troop will parade a; die  exhibition building on Friday the  I2lh inst., at 7.30 p.m.  Scout A. Clarence of the Wolves  passed his second-claas ambulance  test on Friday, March 29.  Recruit W. Walker is attached  to the troop and posted to the  Wolf Patrol for instruction.  Scouts E. Small 'and E. Hunter  of the Otters left town for their  first-class hike on Easter Monday  with a Shetland pony as a pack  horse, carrying grub and other im  pedimenta. At the timtof writing  we have not heard whether they  relumed or not, so they have evidently had the hike at any rate.  The Sons of England have very  generously come to our rescue  with regard to a piano, and have  loaned us theirs for a month. We  appreciate their kindness very  much indeed, and wish to thank  Mr. Lee and his committee for  their assistance to us.  We also wish to thank Mr. Cunningham *veiy much for moving  the piano to the club room for us,  which is another saving of expense.  We also wish to thank Mr. R. F.  Morrison for letting us have th  use of his hall and piano last  week for our first rehearsal of songs  for the concert. As we have now  been able to secure a piano, all  future rehearsals will be held at  our clubroom which ia a great sav  ing of time and trouble to us.  Owing i) the weather looking so  threatening early on Saturday  morning last, the hike to Crawford  Falls for that day was called off,  and took place on Easter Mondav  instead. The troop was only 14  strong on this hike, and it is to b  regretted there was not a better  turn out as it was such a fine day,  but it is the misfortune of those  who did not attend. We left thi  clubroom al 8.15 and reached the  falls in two and a half hours. We  left the falls at a quarter to 2 and  arrived in town again shortly be  fore 4. There is quite a bit of frost  ih the ground at the falls and as a  result of this there were many impromptu Vides in getting, down  below the falls and to the creek  bottom. There was just enough  frost out of the ground to make  the surface loose and slippery.  That there are nine hundred  schools which are empty from lack  of teachers is the statement of Mrs.  Nellie McClung, who is in B.C. for  the purpose of recruiting members  of the teaching profession to fill  the vacancies.  Five hundred Siamese aviators  are being trained for service in  Europe as Siam's contribution to  democracy's armies, according to  Frank D. Arnold, former American charge d'affaires at Bangkok,  Siam, who was in San Fiancisco  laat week. He says tbe Siamese  make excellent aviators.  Re-opening of Southend  Store  Mr. L. O. Brown has leased th  O.K. Lumber Co store at the south  end of Pendozi street, and will  open with a fresh stock of Staple  Groceries, Flour, Feed, &c, on-or  about Saturday, April 13th.  The business wilt be conducted  on the strictly Cash and Carry sys.  tern, though arrangements will be  made by which those ao desiring,  may have their goods delivered at  a small additional expense.  While not desiring to be known  as a cheap, cut-price store, the long  established and undeniable accommodation and luxury of Credit and  Delivery must be taken into con  sideration, and allowance will be  made by reducing the price ol the  goods as much as possible.  Thi business will be entirely  separate from the . O.K. Lumber  Co., though I am still acting as secretary, and will continue to look  after the interesta of that company.  The store has been opened with  the idea of accommodating the residents of the south end of the city  and surrounding districts, and I  trust the public will find it.an accommodation and favor me with  a goodly share of patronage.  . L. 0. BROWN.  How Forests Assist  the Mines  The oil flotation process for the  treatment of metalliferous ores has  been discussed a great deal of  late, because by this process even  very low grade ores can be profitably mined while the returns from  high-grade ores are increased. 1 his  process demands the use of a wood  oil, pine oil from the southern pine  forests of the United States, and  the demand there is so great that  the  oil   is  almost unobtainable in  anada.  In this situation some of the mining companies applied to the Minister of the Interior, who, through  the Forestry Branch, started the  chemists of the forest production  laboratories to work to find whether  pine oil could be procured in this  country. After eight months' wotk  it wot discov-red that not only  could pine oil be made in Canada  but also that a much less expensive  oil being produced daily as a byproduct in wood distillation could  be used successfully in the oil flotation process. This means lhat  Canadian reduction plants are now  independent of oil supplies from  the United States, and it is one of  the many proofs of the advantage  of having a government laboratory  assist the producers of the country  in increasing the output of material, especially at this time when  everything calls for increased production that Canada may fully do  her .part in the war.  The C.P.R., in o der to make  their train schedule between Canada and the United States conform  to the daylight saving, scheme in  troduced in the United States, will  hold all its trains one hour at thi  border. The new regulation came  into effect Monday, April 1st, but  it is expected'that in a very short  time Canada will see a similar bill  put into effect.  A request has been received by  cable from the overseas authorities  for the immediate organization  and despatch overseas of a Canadian tank battalion, consisting'of  87 officers and 700 other ranks, a  certain proportion of whom must  have certain technical experience  and mechanical qualifications.  Lieut.-Col. R. L. Denison, late 8th  Battalion, C.E.F., and lately com'  manding the Machine Gun Corps  in Canada, has been selected to  command the unit.

IM  Another Prophecy of  the Great War  The following translation of an  article in a Danish newapaper  which, at any rate shows what exceedingly able seers lived at Vismar  200 years ago.  At the breaking down of a wall  in the Monaatry of the Holy Ghost  at Vismar (a city on the ialand of  Gothland in the Baltic sea) a 200  year-old prophecy of the war has  been found. The prophecy, which  was written on parchment by a  monk in the year of 1 701, is now  kept in the town hall of Vismar.  The manuscript reads: "Europe  will some day, when the Pope is  vacant, meet with a fearful punishment. Seven nations will turn themselves againat a bird with two heads.  The bird will defend itself with  wings aird Inlons. A monarch who  alwaya moun'.i his horse from the  wrong side shall be surrounded by  a wall of foes. It will be a tough  struggle against east and west, and  the lives of many shall be lost.  "War chariots shall roll forward  without horses and fire dragons  'shall fly through the air and spew  fire and sulphur and destroy towns.  Mankind will not listen to the for-  boding of God and He shall turn  jway from them. The war shall  last three years and five months.  Starvation and disease will follow.  "Bread will be controlled and  distributed among the people. Men  mill he lurking at thi' bottom of thc  sea for prey. The war will atart  when the corn is ripening in the  frr'lds and reach its maximum pitch  when the cherry trers nre bloom-  ins for the third lime.
