 KdoUnm  tt$v\  UN 7* fe{3  VOL. V. -NO. 6.  KELOWNA. BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, JAN. 2, 1913.  $1.50 Per Annum.  [Meeting of  City Council  'etition   Against  Cruelty of  aving Horses Tied in Street  The council held a meeting last  londay, Aid. Blackwood being  [the only absentee.  A subdivision plan of Block* 4,  and 17 was presented by Mr.  fZ. C, Josselyn, and passed.  A plan from Mr. W. J. Clement  fof the south half of Block 20 was  also approved.  A deputation consisting of Messrs. G. C. Rose, R. A. Pease and  . McLennan, waited on the council on behalf of the newly-formed  Celowna branch of the Society for  (the Prevention of Cruelty to Ani-  nals. At a recent meeting, said  ilr. Rose, who introduced the  deputation, a discussion had arisen  on the question of leaving horses  tied up in the street. The chief of  {police, who had become a member  of the society, had been present  and suggested that the council be  asked to amend the by-law covering the tying of horses in the  street so ss to reduce the period  from four hours to one hour.  Horses were often being subjected  to great suffering by being tied up  for hours, especially in the cold  weather, and it was very necessary  if possible the hours should be  shortened.  It had also been suggested that  the council make it compulsory to  loosen the check rein when horses  were left standing. There was  nothing more cruel than to leave  a horse with its head checked up  'high. The use of the check rein  had been practically abolished  ��� altogether in the Old Country.  Mr. McLennan and Mr. Pease  I supported these requests which  >were promised consideration by  \ the council.  Mr Rosa alee m.n*U..��J ibat  complaint was made as to the kil-  I ling of dogs in the pound, It  seemed that the uncertain method  of performing the operation often  resulted in great cruelty. One dog  which was being shot had recently  got away and run around the street  with several wounds in the head.  He thought that some more humane  way of putting stray dogs out of  existence could be devised.  Mayor Jones said he was pleased  to see that the Society was taking  up these matters and the council  would do all in its power to assist  them.  Mr. H. B. D. Lysons waited on  the council with a complaint respecting his taxes. He was assessed both by the city and the province for the same lsnd, and  although he had written to the  government several times he had  not been able to get any satisfaction. He requested that the council instruct the city clerk [to take  the matter up with the government.  He raad a letter he had just received from Mr. H. F. Wilmot,  provincial assessor, stating that his  property was not in the Kelowna  school district.  Mayor Jones informed Mr. Lysons that the council was quite  satisfied- as to the legality of the  school tsxes levied on his property  by the city, and the fact that he  had been incorrectly taxed for the  same property by the government  was a matter with which the council could not deal.  The following accounts were  passed for payment:���  3ewar Time Cheque.

The total poll had been I 7,  all for and none against. The bylaw was thus carried and a formal  resolution put through that it be  reconsidered and finally passed.  The question of the coming  municipal elections was then taken  up and a resolution parsed fixing  the date for nomination of mayor,  aldermen and school trustees for  the ensuing year of 191 3 for the  second Monday in January, January 13th, between the hours of  12 and 2 p.m., and that the poll, il  necessary, be taken on the following Thursday, January 16th, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 7  p.m., and that G. H. Dunn be  returning officer.  Aid. Sutherland aaid the annual  public meeting should be held, if  possible, It seemed as though  there would be some difficulty this  year in getting together a council  for next year owing to the difficulties which would have to be encountered. If the public were  informed as to the exact standing  of the council it would perhaps  make matters easier.  After discussion it was finally  decided to call the public meeting  for Friday, January 10th, in thr  Opera House.  Poll Tax Will Soon  Be Abolished  Much-abused Source of Revenue to be Abandoned  Earnest of the government's intention to include in the coming  session's amendments to the Revenue Act a section rescinding the  provision for collection of what is  generally referred to as the Poll  Tax is contained in a circular  which has recently been sent out  from the provincial assessor's office  notifying all deputies and government agents throughout the province instructed to make collections to revenue, that all receipt  books issued for the collection of  poll tax are now to be returned to  Mr. J. B. McKilligan, survevoi of  taxes and inspector of reveuues,  and that all collections of the tax  are to cease from December 31st.  For over a quarter of a century  past a poll tax of $3 per annum  has been levied and collected in  British Columbia from every male  person between the ages of eighteen and sixty residing in the  province, unless such persons be  exempt for special reasons, such  as militia service, &c. The Provincial Revenue Tax, as it has been  officially known, has long been one  especially protested sgainst by the  industrial classes, and its abolition  is directly attributable to a recommendation in thia behalf contained  in the report of the Royal Commission on Taxation created by  the province a year or so ago.   .

Poultry Show  Opens To-day  Fine Collection  of  Poulty  in  Exhibition Building  The First Annual Winter Poultry  Show under the auspices of the  Kelowna Poultry and Pet Stock  Association opened today in the  Exhibition Building, Ellis street,  Some 300 birds in all are on show,  making a very creditable showing  when one considers the short time  in which the Poultry Association  has been in existence, and that this  ia the first show of its kind in the  district. To achieve this it has  meant a considerable amount of  hard work on the part of the secretary, Mr. E. L. Ward, the president, Mr. J. C. Stockwell. and olher  members of the executive.  The birds are housed in the exhibition building by arrangement  with the A. & T. Association. A  large number of new pens have  been constructed and the old ones  altered and improved.  The birds will be judged by Mr.  W. Edwards of Victoria. Due to  an unfortunate delay to the boat in  which Mr. Edwards travelled from  Victoria to Vancouver, lhe judge  was a day late in getting here, and  the judging will not commence until tomorrow (Friday) morning. To  obviate the inconvenience arising  from this delay the committee are  arranging to keep the show open  until Saturday afternoon.  The various classes of poultry  are well represented and some of  the exhibits are of a high order.  Such popular breeds as Barred  Rocks,White Wyandotte, Leghorns  and Orpingtons of course show lhe  largest entries, while considerable  space is occupied with the Rhode  Island Red, which seems to be  making great strides into general  favor.  The list of prize-winners will  now, of course, have to be held  over until next week.  Over 3000 Men Now On  Kettle Valley Line  At the present time the Kettle  Valley Railway Co. has over 3,000  men st work on the construction  of their line between the Koote-  nays, the Okanagan, Similkameen  and Hope at the west of the mountains. Twelve hundred of these  are at work on the section just  east of the Okanagan, while the  others are scattered over the line  of construction, including a crew  on the Hope mountain section.  It is expected that within a few  months this number will be increased to 5,000. Contractors  report that it is easier to get men  now than it has been for some  time past.  The preaent work entails an  expenditure of over a quarter of a  million dollars a month, and the  employment of 140 draughtsmen  and engineers.  Smell Poll on Money By-law  The poll taken last Friday on  the rtioney by-law to raise $10,-  000 to extend the water ar.d light  systems was probably the smallest  on record. The total number of  citizens who took the trouble to  register their vote was I 7. These  were all cast in favor there being  no opposition.  Mrs. G. E. Boyet and family  desire to express their thanks for  the kind sympathy which has been  extended to them in their recent  sad bereavement.  Many people will no doubl have  noticed the flag which is flying  over the customs office. This is in  accordance with instructions from  Ottawa, which state that the flag  muat be kept up all the year  round.  A heavy snowslide struck the  Coal Creek n.ines of the Crows  Nest Pass Coal Co. at Fernie, Monday, carrying with it the carpenter  shop, in which twelve men were  working, six of whom were killed  and six severely injured.  Installation of Masonic  Officers  The officers of the St. George's  Lodge No. 41, A.F. & A.M., were  installed in due and ancient form  on Monday, December 30th.  There was a full attendance, 76  masons being present. The installing R. W. Bro. Hamilton Lang,  D D.G.M., of Vernon, conducted  the ceremonies in a full, complete  and finished manner, which together wilh the choral service, left  a lasting impression on the minds  of all present.  At the banquet following the  closing of the lodge every member  thoroughly enjoyed himself and  joined heartily in the toasts which  were responded to by various  brethren. The following is a complete list of speakers and singers :-  Grace Rev. Bio. Davidson  Toast The King and Craft  God Save the King  Song. "Where the Shannon Fiows"  Bro. G.

Gsumage j8 spending  the festive season with Mr. and  Mrs. J. Ball. We regret to hear  that he is nursing a wounded  hand.  Messrs. Hall & Son have commenced clearing operations on  their property which they have  lately acquired from Mr. W. Barnes.  We wish them every success and  are glad to welcome them amongst  us.  Mr. G. A. Batchelor has suspended operations during the holiday  week. Being a pcpular man he  could not well do otherwise. He  haa a fine large team ready to  resume work on the McNair ranch.  We are often asked what we  can do on the west side of the  lake. If Until recently a non-agriculturist, who used to have it as  his boast that he " had never  planted anything but a melon seed  which did not grow," can produce  cabbages weighing from 15 to 17  lbs., and can make $240 per acre  on hia small fruits���gooseberries���  what could not the knowing ones  do?  On the evening of Boxing Day  Mr. and Mrs. J. Brixton received a  surprise party of nearly thirty of  their friends, a most enjoyable  evening being spent, each one contributing something to the general  fund of, amusement, while the  ladies' orchestra supplied the  music for songs and dances. The  party broke up in the " wee sma' "  hours amid many expressions of  appreciation of their genial host  and hostess, and of the kindness of  Mr. Redsull, snr., and Mr. E. Red-  sull, who with their usual tact and  bon homme helped ss much towards the general enjoyment.  Mr. and Mrs. Hugh C. Jenkins  returned to-day frqm Enderby  where they have spent Christmas.  (From our own correspondent)  Mr. Whitewav has been down  from the camp this week looking  well filled with the good things of  life.  Mr. A. W. Dalgleish lost his sorrel! mare last weekend, the animal  straying away from his ranch. It  was last seen around Benvoulin.  Rutland continues to grow. Tlie  latest step is the raising of the Rutland Post Office to the dignity ol  a money order office. This may  seem a small matter but it will be  a big convenience to residents of  the disirict.  Miss Beth Dalgleish entertained  a number of her girl friends to a  birthday party on New Year's Day  Auto riding and skating formed  part of the fun.  Skating parties have been fashionable this week, the ice on the  lakes having been in fine shape.  The young people are looking  anxiously for the appearance of  the new moon to provide illumination for the evenings.  Messrs. W. A. and C. M. Leitch  have taken up their residence on  the property purchased from Mr.  Geo. Yale.  Mr. H. W. Raymer of Kelowna  has been awarded the contract for  the new school and will commence  to get supplies out in readiness for  buildinR operations in the spring.  The plans show a serviceable  building which will he one of the  best ever built in B. C. for a rural  school district.  A correspondent sends us this  week a fuller report of the Sunday  School Christmas entertainment  given at Mount View Methodist  Church on Monday evening December 23rd and which was briefly  noticed last week. There were  about 175 people present and I  think, '"says our correspondent,  every one agreed that a good work  is being done by the school, al  though perhaps we do not always  realize the the sacrifice it often  means to the teachers and officers  of the school in carrying on this  work.  The church was very prettily  decorated wilh evergreens and all  kinds of seasonable mottoes, flags,  etc. and the platform was arranged  to represent the home of Santa  Clans, with fireplace and chimney  for Santa to come in, and the  Christmas tree resplendent with  dazzling tinsel and toys.  The program was a >cantata entitled " Old Kriss Kringle." Laurie  Crowcroft and Jean McDonald  were Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus and  Wesley Barber and Amy Fleming  were Grandpa and Grandma.  Lillian Sproule, Joy Fleming and  Flossie Dilworth made splendid  fairies. Milton Bird, Elwood Fleming and Victor Clarke were the  brownies, and Olive White, Etta  McDonald, Verna Ford and Mar-  jorie Johnston, the elves. Besides  these almost every child in the  school took part, each one rendering their songs and recitations perfectly, and without the slightest  hitch and everyone present agreed  that the gems o( lhe evening were  the little tots, Thelma Dilworth and  Jessie Plowman.  Ol course alter the cantata, the  grown up Santa Claus appeared  with hi* red face, white hair and  jingling aleigh bells, to present the  toys to the children, every child in  school receiving some nice present  while each class had a 'present on  the tree for their teacher. The  superintendent and the pastor wei e  also remembered, and oranges and  candie were distributed to every  child present.  Great credit is due to Misses  Lillle Bird, Annie Gay and Ruby  Hunter and all others who worked  so hard to make the affair a success.  The largest steamer yet built in  B.C. was launched last week in  Victoria. The steamer is built of  steel and will be used by the  C.P.R. in maintaining a service on  the we*t coa��t of Vancouver Island. The boat has been christened  the " Princess Maquinna."  Doukhobors Are Good  Settlers For B.C.  U  Finding of Investigating  Commissioner  The following are the general  findings and recommendations  contained in lhe report which has  just been made to His Honor the  Lieutenanl-Governor-in-Council by  Mr. William Blakemore of Victoria  who was on August 15 last appointed a Royal Commissioner under the Public Inquiries Act to investigate all matters [.retaining to  the sect of Doukhobors in British  Columbia:  "I. That Doukhobors are desirable setlli rs (rom the standpoint  of their personal character, farming skill, devotion lo agricultuie  and general industry.  "2. That this investigation has  failed to establish any valid objection to them except their refusal to  comply with the registration laws  and Schools Act.  " 3. That there is no evidence,  of customs and practices of any  kind detrimental to the general  well-being of a community.  " 4. That auch minor objections  as have been raised should nnt be  allowed to weigh against their  many good features and especially  against their qualifications as agriculturists.  " 5. That their refusal tn comply with the registration laws and  Schools Act is based upon their  religious beliefs and conscientious  scruples, and their attitude is genuine.  "6. That there ia sufficient evidence to justify lhe conclusion that  their views'will be modified as they  become beller acquainted with the  true character of our institutions.  " 7. That the head of the Douk-  hobor Community, Peter Veregin,  lias sufficient influence and authority to bring about full compliance  with iheae laws, if not at. once, at  any ra'��*vilhin a reasonable time.  " 8. That there is reason to believe that the Doukhobors have to  some extent been kept in the dark  as to their obligations under certain Canadian laws.  "*9. That they have imbibed  the impression that as long as ihey  did not become naturalized Brilinh  subjects they would not be called  upon to obey certain laws.  "10. lhat thev have been taught  that in coming to British Columbia  and acquiring their land from individuals they would not be under  the same obligation to obey lhe  laws as in Saskatchewan, where  they acquired their land from the  government.  "II. That punishment by imprisonment fails of its effects ii  in their case because they repan  it as prosecution, and they are ih-  more inclined to this view bi cause  a spirit of distrust has been devel-  oped in them in consequence ol  the persecution to which the> hav.  been subjected for more than three  hundred years.  Trade Union Dynamiters  Convicted  The Uniled Stales Government  with stern and decisive suitress  laat Saturday took into its possession thirty-eight union labor < fhci-  als convicted of conspiracy, of promoting explosions on non-union  work throughout the land, of aiding in lhe destruction which  brought loss of life in Los Angeles  California, and of carrying cm a  "reign of terror" declared lo be  unparalleled in the history of lhe  country. Almost lhe entire executive staff of the International  Association of Bridge and Structural Iron workers was convicted.  Only two officers of this union now  remain out of jail. At the head of  (he list of those convicted stands  Frank M. Ryan, the president.  Estimsting the the population tt  120,000, Vancouver has a greater  number of policemen per caputs  than any other city in Canada.

Quite in the old style of "The  1 hunderer " is an editorial aiticle  on the European situation that appeared in the" limes" and is being reprinted everywhere. It is  regarded as one of the most powerful peace appeals ever published  iu a newspaper. Ihe following  are some extracts from it:  " ' Is there no means of avoiding  war?' The question is being  asked wilh some bewilderment by  millions of men in this country  who want lo know what difficulties  there are in the present situation  which should threaten Europe with  a general war.  I here is no irresistible waveof  popular feeling, no gusts of angry  passion, such as sweep whole  peoples into war before thev are  well aware what they are doing.  There is no great nation of  Europe which today has the least  desire that millions of men should  he torn Irom their homes and flung  headlong to destruction at the bidding of vain ambition.-.  " In England men will learn with  amazement and incredulity lhat  war is possible over the question  of a Servian port, or even over the  larger issues which are said to lie  behind it. Yet that is whither the  nations are blindly drifting. Who  then, makes war i>  I he answer is to be found in  the chancellories of Europe, among  lhe men who have loo long played  with human lives as pawns in a  game of chess, who have become  so enmeshed in formnlas and. the  jargon of diplomacy that ihey hav��  ceased to be conscious of (he poig-  nnnt realities with which they  trifle.  " And thus will war continue to  he made until the gieat masses  who are the sport of professional  schemers and dreamers' say the  word which shall bring, not eternal  peace, for that is impossible, but a  determination thai wars shall be  fought only in a just and righteous  and vital cause."  190,424 passengers we re carried  by Vancouver street cars on December 24th.

Macadam for the country and smaller cities was  the only material used. Then, twenty years  ago concrete was introduced. And for these  twenty years concrete haa been proving  itself.  It is now acknowledged to be one of the  best known materials lor roads or for street  pavements���to be as far superior to ordinary  macadam as macadam is superior to sand.  Estimating the Cost.  It ii not the first cost of a road that determines ir11 real cost; nor is it the first six months  of service that determines whether it's a good  road or a poor one.  The only sure way to find out what a road  has cost, is to add to the first cost all that is  spent for repairs in fifteen or twenty years.  Now, that's where concrete roads win  every argument���llteir first cost is practically  their only cost;  they require little or no upkeep  The kind of good road,  however, is another  matter.  cost.    Concrete,  instead of   needing repair,  actually becomes stronger with age.  How You Can Help.  You can help your community to come to  a wise decision the next time the question of  roads comes up.

General at the next session of the  Legislature to introduce a bill for  the appointment of a provincial  auditor, who shall occupy an independent position somewhat  analogous to that of the auditor-  General of the Dominion, that is  to say, he will not be subject to  dismissal except by a resolution  of the Legislature after charges  have been laid against him and an  enquiry held.  The idea is that an auditor who  occupies this position will be able  under any circumstances to see  that the law is enforced, and that  no public money is expended  illegally.  There will be a treasury board  comprised of members of the Government, competent to over-rule  his decisions, but in all such cases  a report will have to be made to  the Legislature at the following  'srision, setting forth in full the  expenditure to which the auditor  objected and his reasons for objecting together with the reasons  of the Treasury Board for overruling him.  Government Grant to  Progress Club.  The Provincial Government has  arranged to establish a provincial  exhibit of natural resources in the  permanent quarters of the Progress  Club at Vancouver, and that sufficient money will be granted to enable municipalities, towns and  cities of British Columbia to secure  space for exposition purposes at  half the rate charged to unsub-  sidized exhibitors, is the news received in a Christmas message (rom  the executive council of the Government to Dr. Elliott S. Rowe,  commissioner of the Progress Club.  Upon receipt of this communication display space aggregating 750  square feet was reserved for the  Provincial government, arid an announcement has been sent to all  civic and municipal publicity  bodies in the province notifying  them of the governnent's intention  to render substantial aid in the  establishing of a permanent natural resources exposition in Van-  IftttHver.  New Suffragette Tactics.  The levers of the railway signals  were found tied together in a manner to prevent their proper working at Potters Bar station, on th  Great Northern railway, near London, Christmas evening.  A note attached by a cord indicated that the perpetrators were- suffragettes. Fortunately no mishap  Occurred. By the use of ink, paint  and washing blue, the suffragettes  on Christmas day, .rendered thousands of addresses on letters illegible. The women confined their  campaign to Windsor and other  suburbs and assailed every letter  pillar.  A proposal to tax contractors for  the use of streets while building  operations are being cartied out  is being considered by the commissioners of Calgary.  The commission form of government has been adopted at Lethbridge, and the changes necessary  in the city charter are to be based  on those made by St. John, N.B.  Santa Claus, in an aeroplane, flew  over the heads of thousands of persons gathered at the third international aviation meet of the Pacific  coast, at San Francisco, and dropped candy and nuts into the crowd.  An emphatic denial that he  never advocated continental conscription was contained in a letter  by Lord Roberts to the press. The  veteran said that he approved nf  a democratic force similar to that  of Australia.  Lord Hardinge, viceroy of India  was wounded and an attendant of  his was killed by a bomb hurled  at the viceroy from a housetop as  he wgs entering the new capital of  Delhi.

Only one servant accoin-  paii'les ihe enterprising packer of pork  to his cool summer home.  At the other end of the' scale of  expense, but equally novel, was the  disused boiler that a tramp some  year* ago took possession of near  Peterborough, England. The fascinations of his boiler-home had reoalim-  ed him from a wunderlng lite. It was  the pride that made him daub his  name all over tin- outside with paint  that betrayed him.  The great American newspaper proprietor, Pulitzer, who died recently,  hod a morbid hatred of noise. Before taking permanently to life on an  oceau-golug yacht, he had at one time  a small, rlng-shapcil house near New  York.

Wlndowlese on the inside of  the ring, the house was a house of  ���>ce to the blind newspaper-owner  i��� th* middilo, the courtyard being  paved with rubber.  Sl'OILIMi THE JOKE.  Of all freak houses, perhaps the  queerest would have been one In Bus-  sex, England. An American, who waa  trying to settle down to English ways,  had a small country bouse there, holding a commanding situation on a  hilltop. An injudicious wager touched Ms American pride, and he started  sho���Ing his defiance for all things  British by ordering a squad of local  pointers to paint the four aides of hi*  house ta'the glorious gleefully, but a  stolid district council soon stepped In  and spoiled the Joke.

Bven war, with ail Ita grim horror,  has now and then a bit of fun, and  enemies, pitted against each other ln  deadly struggle, can relax Into friendly controversy. A general relates a  curious incident of tlie Crimean War.  While the British Army lay before  Sebnstopol much speculation went on  In regard to the relative merits of  certain Russian and certain British  guns.  One day, during hii armistice, a  Russian officer of artillery came to  the British lines and asked to see  the commander of the Britiah artillery.  "Your sixty-eight pounder that  your people call 'Jenny' Is a beautiful  gun," said the Russian; "but we have  one as good ln the embrasure, and  we ahould like a fair duel with her."  Arrangements were made that at  twelve the next day all other firing  ahould cease, and that the two guns  should be put to the test.  At the appointed time a large number of officers were assembled to  view tlie contest. The British sailors  of tbe gun detachment took off their  otfps and saluted the Russians, who  returned the compliment. The British  gun, as the settlor, was allowed to  fire firat. It struck the side of the  Russian embrasure. Then the Russians returned a good shot.  The third shot from "Jenny" went  clear through tlie enemy's embrasure.  The bluejackets, thinking the victory  was theirs. Jumped upon the para-  pete and cheered. But they were  mistaken. Iu a minute out came the  Russian gun again and delivered  several accurate shots. "Jenny" got  a bad thump on her Bide, but It did  no material harm.  At the seventh shot from the  British side the Russian gun was  knocked clean over. The British fellows cheered vociferously, aud the  Russians mounted the parapet and  took of fthelr hats ln acknowledgement of defeat. This ended tho great  gun duel, and more serious hostilities  were resumed.  BfflWSliUCK  Of tlie many relics of Nelson, few  appear so Interesting as a humble  little object In an obscure English  town. At the Huston Grammar School,  In Norfolk. Ixird Nelson was numbered amongst the pupils, and one summer evening he spent some time ln  oaiying the initials II N. on the wall  that surrounds tile school.  Years afterwards, when he became  tlie people's Idol, visitors m-.tde a  point of viewing Ills handiwork ou  tlie wall, and prt :-uut!ons were Liike.i  to gua-i-d zealously tills memento of  the ruinous Admiral. But In 1S41 u  great storm blew down u tree, 'vhleh  In Its fall purtly demolished the iiot'd  niiii-oiiiy. On the following moni'iig,  Mr. Rider Haggard (recently created  a baronet), who was visiting the  head master, spent Borne time In  assisting to find the music leMers,  attil it was reserved for the celebrated  lievelll to discover the Identical brick  required.  He banded il over lo Hie .principal  of Uie sclniiii ,aud today t!io brick  rests enclosed in a thade bearing a  suitable Inscription, in die most prominent position In the school.
