' ���  Unknown Suicide at  South Okanagan  FOUND   HANGING   DEAD    IN  DISSEHTED SHACK  Two young Scotchmen coming down  fr6m tho railway bamp last Saturday  to South Okanagan post office (or  their mail, made a gruesome dlsoovery  us they were passing an old deserted  aback, about two miles up tho road  above the hotel. Hanging by the  uook inside the shack they caught Bight  of the body of a man, who proved to  be quite dead.  He had taken tho rope which hud  tied his. blankets and listened it to a  board nailed to tht* wall of the Bhack.  On the other end he had mado u nnoBe  which he had passed around his neok  It was ovidently a moat determined  case of suicide. The shack waB not  high enough to allow of any drop and  to oarry out his awful purpose he had  been obliged to crouch in a kneeling  position, from which a singlo effort on  his part would have released him.  Hastily the two young men completed the I wo mill"' to thc post office and  sent word of their discovery to the  provincial police, when Coroner lv  Weddell, accompanied by Cons-table  Vachon drove out and the body waB  removed to the hotel and efforts made  to find someono to identify it or givo  some clue which would lead to ita  identification but without avail.  It was impossible even with any cur  tainty to deoidt- the man's nationality  He waa a man of about 5 feet 11 in  ches, nnd apparently between .iO and  ���40 years-of age; clean shaven, with  rather sharp featui-oa; dark wavy hair,  whioh had recently been cut and hit.  neeh had also been shaved  There were two old scan  his left knee, and he had been vaoci  ated on the left arm. This* was all���  no letters, paixTi-hor anything to give  the smallest indication as to who he  was or where he had eome from. A  bottle about, a third full of whiskey  'aud'tfltfO in wfch <*-vfc alto found on  him. The -appearance of his complete  little ^cooking outfit showed him to be  a tramp of Bomb qxj>ericnce on tho  road. In his pocket was also found  a stick of dynamite, as though ho had  contemplated another way out of his  earthly troubles.  The body was brought into town,  but although every enquiry was made  no light couhl lie thrown upon tho  man's identity. Tho caso was so obviously one of suicide that no formal  inquest was considered necessary, and  the body was buried Tuesday Rt  cemetery.   0 '   Council Asked for Site  in Park for Armoury  BY-LAW WILL BK SUBMITTED  PEOPLE POR SANCTION  TO  3r,  tho  Ellison News  Mr. C. H. Getm. has returned homo  from the prairie, having had u very  pleasant and successful trip.  Mr. J. Murray haa completed his  contraot at Mr. M. Heroron's for whom  he baled 200 tons of tho finest hay  raiaud in tho valley during tho past  season.  Mr. M. Hororon returned homo on  Saturday lust from Victoria, where he  hud been on business in connection  witli the protection of the bunks of  Mission Oreok.  Mr. M. Conroy has roturned homo  from Dos Moines. Iowa, where he has  beta taking a course in engineering.  Mr. J. Carney has raturnod from  Vancouver whore ho hus been attending the normal school   O   Before Magistrate Boyce yestorday  morning Geo. Lister waa filled $25  and costs for driving an automobilo  while under the influence of liquor. It  appears that Lister was driving hia  car, with several ocoupants, up Ber  nard avenue last Friday evening about  6.30 and overtook two boys going  the same direotion on bicyelos. One of  the boys, Wilfred Bouvette was unable  ' * to,get out of tho way of the car and  was knoeked over and his bicycle  smashed. Evidence was culled to prove  oureleRsness on the purt of tho driver  who was moro or less intoxicated at  the time, tn addition to the fioo his  driver's licence was oancelled and hn  waa ordered to pay for the repair of  the boy's bioyole. In connection with  the case It waa pointed out that H ie  strictly against the law for anyone to  supply liquor to a ohauffeur while in  charge of a car.  Tlie council met last Friday with  Alderman Sutherland in tho chair in  the absence of Mayor .Jones, who was  hw ay at tho coast. '  The principal matter under consideration was a question raised by a deputation, consisting of Messrs. Chas.  Clarke, II. W. Raymer, and G. C  l.oso, who attended in reference to a  proposed now armory in Kelowna.  They reported having .wen informed  that Colonel Sam Hughes, minister of  militia was on 'his way to the coast,  and it was their intontion to invite  him to visit Kolowna for the purposo  ���f considering the construction of an  armory in tho city. Before going further into the matter they thought it  advisable to obtain some assuruncc  from the council that it approved of  submitting a by-law to the ratcpuy-HV  at the coining municipal olection for  the purpose of authorizing them to  deed a site for the armory in the pub-  He park to the federal government. Tho  site suggested waa about one aero on  Abbott atreet at the interidtitiMt of  Kli avonue.  The members of the council expressed  themselves aB being in favor of putting the matter to the vote of the  ratepayers. Aldorman Suthorland  pointing out that it would be necessary for the govornmont engineer to  make a survey nnd furnish u complete  description of the property involved in  order thut some might be incorporated  in tho by-law before it could bo put  before the ratepayers.  'he following    accounts were paBBed  .^payment'���  G. ffE.  Hudson, ^"pictures of  disposal plant ,.  Bankhead  Orchard  Co.,   teaming in park     A.  K.

Gordon, taking down  evidence at court    By-law 117 consolidating certain sewer construction by-lawa was reconsidered and finally passed.  Mr. .1. A. digger, building .inspector,  and also chairman of tho school trustees, addressed tho council on the subject of fire protection at the public  schools. He suid ho had noticed in  the reports of the council meetings  that on several occasions some question had been raiaed as to thc adequacy of the fire esoapes on the new  building. He thought those discus*  sions calculated to cause uneasiness in  the minds of the public, and he would  like to know just whnt tho council's  objections were.  -Jfldermun Taylor replied that he had  brought this matter to tho council's  attention for the reason that he was  of the opinion that h regular fire escape witli steps should have boon provided in ordor thnt it could bo used  for regular fire drill... instead of tho  present ladder arrangement.  Mr, Digger suid that fire esoapes as  outlined by Aldormun Taylor would  cost at least 11000 each, und he did  not think the council was ia u position  to purchase a number nf these just  now. lie considered that the new building especially hud Iwen designed so us  to be perfectly safe, nnd he thought  in both schools ample provision had  been made for the snfoty of tho sehol-  ure jn caso of firo.  Alderman Tnylor asked how it was  tho power house whistle had not beon  blown nt  the oustomuiv hour lately.  Alderman Sutherland slated that at  tho request of tho doctors who had  been ut tending ,i very SOrioUl case in  tho neighborhood of tho power house  the blowing of tho whist Io had lieen  suspended for a time. It was now in  uso again.  Some little discussion arose on tho  payment of trade licences, etc., afte  which  the meeting adjourned.  8*27.75  49.25  6.00  2.00  10.00  Monthly School Reports  REPORT FOR DECEMBER  No on Average  lioll Attendance  Division        1  . ...   87.46  II  . ...  33.80  111  IV  30   . ...  29.6  V  . ...   28.7  *          VI  . ...  31.79  Vll  34    . ...   30.8  VIII  30   . ...  27.2  IX  33   . ...  30.93  X  32   . ...  29.33  XI  29   . ...   28.06  Totulii    f    r  . ...336.17  Percentage Attendanoe:   ....  . ... 91.4  WKKCKKD FRENCH STEAMRI.

While it is true  that the effort of man has produced many safety devices, yet nature seems  to find new ways of combating them. Many times during the year wireless has sent flashing throughout the air tales of terrible sen tragedies. One  of the most recent disasters was when the French Steamer Ville de Temple  ran ashore at Land's Kmi on November 30 'in a fog.

Pringle,  acting president of the Armstrong  Board, in that position, with Mr. 0.  Creed for secretary.  On motion of Messrs. DuMoulin  and Wolfenden, Mr. Cannell, retiring  seoratary, was nuked to acoept 150.00  as an appreciation of his valued services for the past year to the Associated Board.  A resolution was introduced by Mr.  Obee of Vernon, asking the government for the establishment of a system  of labor bureaas throughout tha Dominion. The end in view is to be able  to secure labor on short notice for  various industries. The resolution had  already 'been endorsfed by many organizations throughout Canada. Mr. Mc-  gaw aaked to have thc resolution  amended so that a bureau or bureaus  wouW be established in the larger cities of the province, thus eliminating  di-lny in getting into touch with labor  through a contral bureau at Ottawa.  The suggestion of Mr. Megaw was  emboaVed in an am.sndraent in accordance -with his view and this was carried by tho convention.  The request for sanction of the  resolution from thc lfornie Board of  Trado re selling of practically worthless pffairb hiiIm]*. i.ti<m proper licit in  the l'Vnit. district and asking for imposition oil a lidiivy tax upon agwita  of suoh Was not passed upon, but  was ro-submifctod m amended form by  Messrs. Obea and Corby. Several  delegates thought the resolution of  Fernio went too far in Borne respects  aad   not (ar enough in* others.     Mr.  Wolfenden was in favor of incorporating in the resolution restrictions on  corrupt operations of irresponsible  trust companies. This suggestion was  hIho favored by the convention and  placed iu  the amended resolution.  Mr. Dyne*., speaking on the same  matter, suggested a rider be added  unking that what is known as a  "Blue Sky Law" bo passed by the  Legislature to curtail such operations. Such a law was opcrutive und  found very effective in Oregon. This  compelled companies to submit plans  und prospectus lo a government board  for approval before selling subdivisions  or stock in companies.  Mr. Obee also submitted a resolu-  I ion respecting the proposal to organize a Central' Executive, comprising  heads of all Hoards of Trade of the  province. Thin body could more expeditiously carry out tho wishes of various districts in preparing requests to  be presented to the legislature.  A resolution asking the Dominion  Express Co., to restore the low rates  on oxpress shipments of fruit during  winter months. The low rate was cancelled by the compnny from October 31  to .June 1 and worked a heavy hardship on anyone desiring to ship small  lots of fruit during the winter. Thn  reduced rate was* 1.60 to Vancouver,  whereas now the rate was ��2,10. About  the same rate prevailed to Calgary.  The high rate charged curtailed to a  great cut ont shipment of IV 0. fruit  to remote points at Christmas.  A   resolution  of considerable  importance to shippers or perishable     goods  from Jhe Okanagan was introduced by  Mr.   Sage and dealt  with  the need for j  tho establishing of a heated way-freight  car service on the,S. & 0. branch    of j  the C. P.  tt,   The company demanded  that a minimum amount of five    tons I  east  and west of Sicamous be guaran-  teed from the valley one day per woek.  Tho  resolution  asking  thut  a(   heated  way   freight   car   be placed  in  service!  once a woek between Docomber lo" and  March  15 was  carried.  Mr. W. E. Adams, read a letter  from Kelowna relative to the destructive work of the English sparrow upon  fruit and asking -the Board to paBB  a resolution to the government looking to the extermination of this pest.  A resolution was drawn up along tho  lines suggested and carried.  Tho Kelowna Board also brought  up the matter of advocating that a  Daylight Saving Bill be passed by the  Legislature. This would be operative  between April 1st nnd Oct. 1st .nud ill  clocks would be sot on one hour in  advance of standard time so thnt the  work day would begin and nd i-nr'ier,  thus securing advantage of all lhe daylight possible. This movement is gaining widespread support throughoit lho  world and such laws are now in force  in other countries. The resolution was  carried ununimously,  A resolution was introduced from  Penticton asking that in view of thc  existing monopoly of the fruit markets of the northwest and Manitoba  hy a ring of commission men, a request be sent by tho Associated Board  to the Dominion government praying  that a commission Ik appointed to  Heal with the matter.  One of tlie supporters of tho resolution stated that Manitoba, Ontario  and other points were pressing for  h commission of enquiry, Ho thought  that there was no other way to get at  the root of tho abuse. This year the  Okanagan growers had felt the effects  of this monopoly through the recently  organized Okanagan United firowers,  who had to pay toll to those monopolists before the association could sell  in certain sections of the northwest  and Manitoba. This fact wns not generally known, but it was the only  means for tho United flrowers to pursue this past year.  Mr. Scott Allen of Vernon,  lho reasons why the Vernon  of Trade wished to shelve the  lut ion was that the B. C.  fi rowers' Association have full details of the matter in thoir hands  regarding this existing monopoly  and were now making efforts to got  after the monopoly. He thought tho  matter was one whioh the fruit growers would have to fight out for themselves and something oould be accomplished by tho B. C. Fruit Growers' Association long before a commission got to work.  Mr. Corby thought that a resolution from the Associated Boards of  Trade to Ottawa would strengthen  tho hands of the Fruit Growers' Association. In this view he was supported by Mr. Mutch and Mr. DuMoulin, the latter thinking that the  heart would be taken out of the monopolists when they heard of the suggested appointment of a commission to  look into their dealings. The resolution paseed.  At the morning session, which met  at 9 o'clock, the first resolution Introduced was one from tho Armstrong  Board of Trade relating to the Oriental question, and was introduced by  Mr. F. C. Wolfenden. Thiw resolution  was that whioh was drawn up and  endorsed at tho protest meeting held in  Armstrong    about    a month    ago.

FOREST PESTS  IN  BRITISH  TJMBU  .0L-  The Btately forest giants ol British  Columbia are exposed to the attacks  of various minute but dangerouB foes.  whioh are receiving much attention at  present from tho' division of entomology of the Dominion department of  agrioulture and the provincial forest  branch. The enemies in question are  chiefly, certain Boolytid beetles of the  genus Dendroctonus, commonly called  bark beetles. They burrow under the  bark of the trees and there deposit  their eggs, which hatch into grube  that eat the sappy layer between the  wood and the bark, driving tunnels  in all directions, and finally so interfering with the circulation o! the sap ns  to oause the death of the tree. An  urea affected by them will be indicated  by a clump V>f withered trees, known  as "red tops", conspicuous among the  surrounding evergreens. Another dan-  ger signal1 iB tubes of pitch surmounting holes through the bark, bored by  tho adult insects.  The bark beetle attacks many kinds  of trees. The western white or mountain pine, Pinus monticola, is attacked by Dendroctonua monticolae, which  is giving great trouble in Washington  and Oregon as woll as in British Col-  umbia. A largo body of fine timber has  been killed in the Sugar Lake and  Maple Lake regions in the Shuswap  valley, B. 0��� and outbreaks have been  discovered near Cowichan Lake and  Campbell River in Vancouver Island.  Other specioB attack the Sitka spruce,  the bull pino, the lodgepole pine, the  Douglas 'fir and the balsam Mr.  The only remedy againBt theso ravages is to cut down the infected trees  and strip off and burn the bark. Up  to date, tho foresters and entomologists in Canada havo devoted themselves rather to survey work, locating  infected areas und preparing a report,  which will shortly be published, on tie  remedial measures proposed.  Besides the bark beetles, other seriously destructive pests may be mentioned, Buch as the ambrosia beetles  that attack dying trees and freshly  cut logs, and caterpillars that infest  the cones of the Douglas fir and tho  bull pine, eating the seeds and preventing reproduction, while spruce gall  insects of the genus Chermes are seriously destructive to the Sitka spruce  in Stanloy Park, Vancouver, and in  the parkB of other towns and cities.���  Summarized from a report by Jj M.  Swaine, Iff.So., Asst. Entomologist,  Dept. of Agriculture.  B. C. LAND FOR SETTLERS  That there is a total of 93,000,000  aores of land reserved for pre-emption  within the confines of the province at  the present time, was the statement  made during the course of an address  on "Land Settlement and Some of Hs  Problems" by Hon. W. R. Ross, min*  inter of. lands, at the Vanoouver Progress Club luncheon.  The Provincial Government, he said,  had sometimes been criticised for not  having made any great efiortB to induce settlers to come to this province,  but the government here had a very  good reason for not making the same  efforts that, other provinces had. The  country in many places was not ao-  cesaiblo, and the government felt that  until railway transportation was provided that it would be useleBs to dump  families into the eounlry with no  means to market crops or bring in  supplies. As a matter of fact, during  tho past few yearB between 0000 and  1 l.oni) pre-emptions had been issued by  tho government to settlors, and during  the hii-t. year 3600 had been issued outside of the railway bolt, and about 1,-  200 within that area.  In the railway belt, he Baid, the Dominion Government was expected by  statutory agreement to settle people  on the land, but this agreement for  somo reason had never been lived up  to until the past two or three_ years  This had, of course, been a detriment  to that section of the country, as for  twonty miles on each side of the- only  available transportation line the country was unsettled.  Of the 260,000,000 acreB of ground  estimated to be within the province  only 5,000,000 acres or about 2 per  cent., had been sold to date, he said,  even excluding reserve land, avail'  ablo for settlement.  While the population of the province has increased 50 per cent., in the  last ten years it had not been a rural  population, and this could be expected  without tho operation of rail way��. In  the next year pr so British Columbia,  with tho settlement of the farming  areas, would bo entering upon it real  destiny. The railways would give settlers easy access to the lands and equal  facility in reaching a markot.  While ho was not there to make any  announcement of policy on behalf of  the government he fell safe in intinv  ating that it would not be long before  the government undertook some ample  und strong policy to attract farmers  to the agricultural lands. This would  be when tho railways were completed.

Letters of a Self-raised Office Boy  to His Pal  In which Jimmy tells of Kelowna happenioRt  to Mr. Sidney Harper, ol Vaaoouver, B. 0,  Dear Sid.���I can tell you right off  the bat that this letter is ; going to be  short, without the redeeming quality  of sweetnesB.  Real news is scarcer than frogs here  and it's a mortal cinch that I am not  going to break the habit of a lifetime  and tell you any lies, for well you  know that alongside of mc. George  Washington was an Annanias of the  deepest dye.  Last Friday night the boss donated  the opera house to the school! children  for their conoert and believe me it was  some .concert. Crowds! Suffering oatii  that room was packed to the guards.  People were festooned along the gallery rail and every conceivable place  where a foothold could be maintained.  The children did themselves proud,  I'll bet there was many a proud father  and mother in the audience that night.  The boss says to me "Jimmy, I am  going to do my Bhare towards making  thin a happy Xmas week by giving the  people some of the brat pictures they  have ever seen", and if he saya he  will do a thing he'll do it or leave  his mangled remaina on the field of  battle.  Wo got off to a flying start on Monday with a pippin of a picture "The  Wall of Money." If this may be taken  as a criterion of what is to follow the  week bids fair to break all records.  In olbBing Sid, I want to wish you  and all my friends the most joyous  and beautiful holiday reason they have  ever experienced, and it is my earnest  hope, that during the coming year  all will be fairly showerud with prosperity and happiness. I am reminded  at this line of an old toast, whioh  conveys my meaning far better than I  am ablo to express it myself: "In  climbing the ladder of prosperity may  you never meet an old friend coming  down."  Yours for a sober Xmas.  JIMMY.  Following is a short lettor received  by Jimmy from his friend Sid:  Vancouver, B. C.  Dear Jimmy.���Here I am again, as  large as life and twice as natural. In  other words I have come back. If I  keep up this rogular writing I'll be liable to dovelope into a real live literary  gent.  Now Jimmy, dear, I must   unburden  myself, for I have something to get  off my cheat, whioh should interest you  I made a business trip over to Seattle  a few days ago and having nothing to  do after supper I hied me to (he theatre. As all theatres look alike to me  I hit for the Metropolitan because it  has the reputation of being a real  "classy House". The bills in the lobby  announced "Bunty Pulls the Strings,"  and on looking at my program after  I got seated I found that "Bunty"  was oalled a -Scotch Comedy. Now,  you know .Jimmy that I never did  have muoh ww for "Scotch" in any  form, and I always had the impression  that nothing short of a surgical operation could put a joke into the head of  a Scotchman. Jimmy the person who  put these foolish notions into my head  is guilty of falsehood, fraud and wilful impositions. Believe me Jimmy  this Scotch comedy is the best play  of the sort I ever saw. It's just as  full of good, wholesome humor as an  egg is full of meat. In fact it's so  good that I'm going to see it sgein  for it's in Vanoouver this week. Whioh  remind me Jimmy, why don't you  come down and spend Xmas with me  and I'll take you to see some real  shows, including "Bunty" at the  "Avenue". I know that you nev-n* clj  anything worth while up in Kolowna  ���that lonesome neck of the woods.  But say���if you come down to Vancouver keep your eyes peeled for the  "Skinny" Blonde��� you know who I  mean���she is still at large���unmarried.  I heard you had an awful mob for  that school oonoert Inul week, well I  was pleased to hear it and I hope  that by this time next yoar the kids  will have the biggest and best library  in B. C. ,  I must conolude now Jimmy by wishing you all the compliments of the season, and you know my opinions���a  sober Xmas meanfj a Happy one and  no regrets. Yours as ever,  ��� SID.

The wrestling match at Vernon last  Friday evening proved one of the  most stubbornly contest od matches ever  witnessed in the interior. Clarence  Eklund, the local wrestler, and champion middleweight of Canada won, but  not until the two men had wrestled  desperately for 1 hour, 23 minutes and  35 seconds, when Eklund gained the  only fall of the evening. The fall was  socured on a too hold in which Clap-  ham's ankle was badly wrenched and  some of the liginaentts so badly torn as  to necessitate his retiring, thus riving  tho victory to the local man. Clapham  outweighed Eklund, but the latter1  experience and speed gave hin the well  earned victory. Bob Suthorland acted  as roferee to tho satisfaction of both  wrestlers and the lapgo orowd who  witnessed   the  match.

Mr. Wolfenden, in speaking on the  resolution, said that it meant ex (idly what it ^titled and emphasized hid  rem."kt* by adding (hat the Asiatic  question, wus ti very MliOUl one here.  In early days tin* .vtfWfat) government Inul repeatedly aimed legisUi-  tiun  against  the admission     of     (ti'  entail but each     i i     the    Dominion  authorities had diM.lluw.il the pro*1'  vincial act. California had panned  prohibition legislation in spite of  Tederal opposition and 11. C, would  yet have tu lake the mutter into its  own hands unless relief cume from  Ottawa.  Mr. Dynes, of Penticton, supported  the resolution und further stated the  Chinamen were trying at the present  time to lease land at Penticton.  Mr. Mutch did not think thi. resolu  tion any too drastic and in addition  to erely [musing upon it und usk-  ing government support would advise  the calling of public meetings through  out the valley and indeed, through'  out the province, and arouse the peo  pie to tlie full realization uf the menace at their doors. The apparent apathy of the people was due, he thought,  to ignorance of the facts, and they  should be given timely warning of the  ultimate results.  Mr. Adams, af Kelowna, wae not in  favor of prohibiting of leasing to Orientals, to which Mr. Mutch replied by  muking reference to the case of a ore-  viously prosperous town in California, where ten years ago Japs were  allowed .to rent a few acres of land.  They had proven so aggressive there  that at present they not only made  it ulmo.it compulsory for white owners to sell out to them, but ulso eon-  trolled every industry in thut oity.  This proved very conclusively the results of non resistance in the beginning  He was against the allowance of the  Orientals holding land of any description.  Mr. Scott Allen favored-allowing the  Orientals admission under a system  of indenture und sending them home  at oxpiry of that term, Puch had  worked well in South Africa. He would'  remove the headtax entirely and put  rest notions on wuge and class of labor  ut which they would be employed. This  would keep them in their place.  Mr. Scott All?n introduced a resolution to tho government favoring granting of assistance to the Okanagan  Telephone Co., in laying u cable across  Okanagan Lake to accommodate a  rapidly growing settlement on the west  side. This assistance would only be  temporary and would be returned to  the government by the company when  tho line began to give substantial evidence of paying its way.  Messrs. Corby and Dufresne fathered p. Summerland resolution to ask  the government to enact some law  whereby telephone companies would  be compelled to connect up with competing lines in order to got messages  through a district not covered by  both lines.

Mr, Wolfenden wus appointed audi-  tor for the Associated Hoards of  Trade for 1914.  Bids were then made for the convention meeting place next year, Vernon, Summerland and Kelowna each  giving an invitation, the final decision  favoring Kelowna, however.  It was also decided, that thc president and secretary get into touch with  Knderby and try to induce the Board  of Trade of that town to get into  touch with the  Associated Board.  Mr. DuMoulin brought up the matter of misleading advertising literature  being sent out from the valley. This  Bort of stuff had always re-acted  against the interests of the valley  und something should be done to put  a stop to it. Tt was finally decided to  ask agents that all advertising literature be first submitted to thc local  Board of Trade for its stamp of approval.  Messrs. DuMoulin and Scott Allen  moved a hearty vote of thanks to the  city of Armstrong and the local Board  of Trade for the enjoyable time given  the visitors while in the city.
