I9I8.-4 PAGES ^/  $1 JO Per Annum  Council Discusses Veterans' Land Scheme  Arrangements Made for Civic  Elections  "That the Dominion govern.  ment secure ��� tract or tracts of  land in the district of Kelowna���  more than 2,000 men having enlisted from this district who will  desire to settle here on their return  ���and proviaion for them should  be made on Indian reserve and  other lands now lying idle around  Kelowna." -  This was the substance of a resolution passed bv the city council  st Monday evening's meeting, and  was the outcome ot a discussion  rsised by a proposal of the local  War Veterans' Association to form  a community settlement. A draft  of this scheme had been sent for  the consideration of the council,  and if possible for endorsation.  After giving this matter careful  consideration the council decided  that it might be advisable in the  first place to request the proper  authorities to make an allotment  of certain lands- in the Kelowna  district for the use of returned soldiers, several members expressing  the opinion that the question of  community-settlement or separate  holdings should be left to the returned soldiers to decide.  A letter from Mayor Gale, of  Vancouver, in reference to the  " Reconstruction" problem suggested the formation in Kelowna of a  committee similar tb that formed  atthe coast.  A letter was read from J. R. Forsyth, for the Custodian of Enemy  Property, enclosing a notice requiring information from all classes of Canadian citizens in connection with such property.  Mr. S. M. Gore wrote suggesting j  that the council supply a free light  to be placed on his verandah,  pointing out that this would take  the place of a street light which  the council had been unable to see  its way clear to instal. The request  was referred to the committee.  Mrs. G. M. Windsor expressed  hei willingness to accept the city's  offer for a further year'a lease on  the police offices at $25 per month.  It was decided  not to  hold the  annual meeting of  ratepayers, but  ' that each  head of   a   committee  should   prepare a report for publication.  A resolution was passed making  the following grants to organiza  tions:���  Kelowna Hospital Socty. ...$376.12  Kelowna Aquatic Assn. ... 102.62  Okan. Ambulance League.. 40.58  Prisoners of War Fund   ...    40 56  Agricultural Assn      9.17  Fire Brigade   100.00  Returned Soldiers get  Enthusiastic Greeting  Fire Brigade Turn Out in Force  to Greet Comrade  Perhaps.the most enthusisstic  demonstration which has yet been  held in welcoming returned men  took place last Friday afternoon  when the Sicamous brought in a  a party of well-known Kelowna  boys. The Fire Brigade turned out  in full force, with both engines,  while the hooters of both boat and  power house, including the fire  syren, aummoned an unusually  large crowd to the wharf.  The chief object of the fire brigade's enthusiasm was Gunner  Harman Willits, a member of that  body which contributed so many  of its number to oversees service.  Gunner Willits went over early,  transferring from the B.C- Horse,  and with a detachment of artillery  saw some heavy service. Wet and  exposure, however, brought on an  attack of trench fever, and he was  sent back to hospital. He was  overwhelmed with congratulaiions  and hand shaking as he stepped  from the boat, and was finally  hoisted shoulder high and carried  to the waiting fire engines, which  then proceeded in noisy procession  through the streets.  Lance-Corporal J. Paret, another  of the returning party, was first with  the 172nd as sergeant, and spent  some time in England as an instructor, later volunteering with a  draft for the trenchea. He was  with the Canadians in some of  their hardest fighting, but he, too,  was at length incapacitated by the  fever and wounds and had to go  back to England.  Pte. Albert Raymer found on  arrival in England that he could  not qualify physically for France,  so he was kept in England as an  instructor in musketry.  Pte. W. Mathews was one of the  original first contingent, joining the  colors almost immediately war waa  declared. "He has been through  the thickest of the war, twice being  wounded.  Pte. H. Mallam, has also seen  a good deal of service, being one  of the B. C. Horse who volunteered  for active service.  Jim Patterson, until lately-of the  Royal Flying Corps, at Toronto,  also returned by the same boat.  lt was torn ally resolved that  nominalions for Mayor, Aldermen  and Police Commissioners for the  ensuing year, and also for School  Trustees, be held on Monday, Jan'  uary Oth, 1919, and that a poll be  held if necessary, on Thursday,  January 16th, 1919.  SCENE FROM "HEARTS OF THE WORLD"  AT OPERA HOUSE NEXT TUESDAY NIGHT  NOTICE  TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF SPANISH INFLUENZA THE MEDICAL HEALTH OFFICER ORDERS THAT  ALL SCHOOLS, THEATRES AND POOL ROOMS BE  CLOSED) THAT CHURCH SERVICES AND LODGE MEETINGS BE SUSPENDED! AND tHAT NO PUBLIC GATHERINGS  OF MORE   THAN TSN BE ALLOWED.  D. W.  SUTHERLAND,  Mayor.  Propose Soldiers' Cooperative Settlement  Community   Farm   Will   Be  Formed By Pooling Interests  The local Great War Veterans'  Association and a local committee  of business men are behind a  scheme for co-operative or community land settlement for returned men, which has many features  to recommend it, and which will  no doubt meet with hearty support,  provided the federal government  can be induced to grant the needed facilities.  Briefly outlined the plan is this:  that a number of returned men,  soldiers' widows, and other dependents who are entitled to land  grants under the soldiers' settlement arrangements, should pool  their interests and with the help of  the government acquire a tract of  land (of the adjacent Indian reserves is suggested), and establish  a co-operative agricultural settlement.' ���  For the purpose of working out  the details of this scheme and laying it before the proper authorities  a committee of citizens and business men comprising Msyor Sutherland snd Messrs. E. R. Bailey,  Grote Stirling, M. Hereron, W. G.  Benson and P. B. Willits are working with the War Veterans, who  have also appointed a committee  consisting of Geo. Kennedy, J. C.  Anderson and Jamea Inglis.  The attractive points in connection with this^scheme as presented  by the committee are :���  I. That many of the men are  not physically capable of taking  up land by themselves, especially  bush land, though they keenly desire to settle on the land ; 2. That  such agricultural pursuits can be  thus taken in hand which will, in  various ways, provide work for the  .partially disabled ; 3. That mutual  assistance will be facilitated, and,  should a man be injured or lose  his health, his holding will be more  easily negotiable, and in the event  of hia death his dependents would  be better provided for; 4. That  the money loaned would be, under the supervision provided, more  secure; 5, That army life has had  the effect of making many men  desirous of working together with  their fellows, rather than as isolated  units; 6. That provision is made  for the interests of soldiers' widows  and other dependents, snd of men  who are: Incapacitated, not adaptable to farming, prevented by other occupations dom actually settling on the land, or desirous of  taking up University courses before  settling down, on the land.  7. That it would tend to smooth  away the difficulty of providing  men with areas of land of exsctly  the same value. Differences of  value disappear in the pooling.  One of the greatest attractions  of this scheme is that the climate  of the Okanagan is specially suited  to men who have passed through  the exacting conditions of the great  war; whose health has been to a  greater or less extent affected by  gas, rheumatism, etc. And, moreover, the industries which flourish  in the district, are such that many  opportunities are offered for light  work and winter work.  In the immediate vicinity of Kelowna there are several Indian reserves, some with no Indians left;  some with no Indians left belonging to them ; and others with but  two or three; and these could be  transferred to adjacent reserves.  There is a reserve just north of  Kelowna containing 640 acrea,  with a creek running through it,  which would provide irrigation. It  is partially cleared and the sbil is  good, and there is nothing to hinder a start being made at the end  of the winter. Two others lying  across the Okanagan Lake from  Kelowna, of about 3,000 to 4,000  acres, have adjoining them a tract  of partially cleared land of some  1,000 acres which could be acquired from a company, and together  they would form an admirable site  for further development aa the  men return For this land sn irrigation system from the neighbouring creeks would be required. On  one of these creeks the adjoining  land just mentioned is recorded.  The construction of the system  would provide work for a good  many returned men for a year or  more, whilst others could be busy  with the clearing, fencing and preparation of the land itself.    .  Besides these reserves there are  other tracts ot land available for  extension which could be purchased, and some of which lie under  the main systems of existing irrigation works.  The scheme ao appeals to the  G.W.V.A. that it appeara likely  that returned men in considerable  numbers will be desirous of com-  ing under it, but aa it is advisable  to make a commencement without  delay a atari conld be made by  those available on a amall area,  extensiou following as requited.  The land could be alloted on  an acreage baaia per man, and be  placed in the hands of a Veterans'  Association governed by an executive elected irom their numbers,  with a representative of the gov  ernment to adviae and co-operate  in directing. The executive would  be guided by stringent rules gov.  erning methods of procedure, snd  one-third should retire each year.  Funds for development purposes  would be borrowed from the government and would provide wages  for the veterana who work on the  land. The profits derived after  deductiona for amortization charges, would be alloted to thoae  whose interest* hsve been pooled.  The value of each tract of land,  with water on it, would have to be  aecertained and the acreage per  man arrived at. For instance  where land ia worth $250 an acre,  and the total sum per man $5,000,  ihe basis would be twenty acres  per man. Again, where the valua-  O  Friedrich Ebert, Socialist Premier of Germany, declared in an interview that he did not know of  anv legal method by which the  surrender of Count William Ho-  henzollern could be forced.  Strike Epidemic Breaks  Out in Germany  An epidemic of strikes is reported from Germany, in aome cases  for higher wagea, and in othera  for the so-called famine aubaidy.  The Krupps directorate have notified their workers thst many foremen and most of the 200.000  workers must be dismissed, as  there is only work for about 12,-  000 men. Vorwaetz demands that  the government at once undertake  public worka that will keep the  gieat plants going.  No more Canadian troops will  be sent to Siberia Ceneral Mewbum  stated in an interview.  'ion of the land' is $50 per acre'  ���nd the cost of an irrigation ays-  tern $100 per acre, the amount per  man would be 33 and one-third  acres. But no feelings of hardship  amongst the men could arise, aa  the land would all be pooled aa  the scheme expanded, and become  the property of the men'a association.  With regard to the lands across  the lake which would "quire the  construction of an irrigation system. Complete plans for auch a  aystem were got out by the company owning the adjoining tract of  land, and it ia understood that thia  aystem could, without difficulty, be  extended to serve the reserve. The  money would have to be borrowed  from the government, and when  expended would repreaent a portion of the value of the irrigated  land alloted to the Association for  a definite number of men. This  irrigation scheme did not include  the construction of reservoirs at  the headwater, but with the inclusion of the reserve this would become necessary.  Copies of this draft scheme have  been forwarded to the Hon. Arthur,  Meighen, miniater of the interior  and the Board of Trade and city  council are each lending their aid  to aecure the release of the Indian  reserves for settlement purposes,  The members of the local War  Veterans' Association are meeting  Saturday to discuss their land settlement scheme and also to elect  delegatea to attend a provincial  convention  to  be held  at   Van-  Former Kelowna Girl  is Influenza Victim  It was the sad experience of Mra.  Geo. Patteraon, who left Kelowna  early last week in reponte to an  urgent telegram announcing tha  serious .lines of her daughter, Mrs.  Rosa L. Henning, to arrive too late  to see her alive. Complications  following an attack of influenza  were tha cause of death, whieh occurred last Thursday at Seattle.  Up to two or three years ago  Miss Rosa Patterson wss one of  Kelowna's best known young  ladies. She was a pupil at the  High School, and was later on the  staff of the telephone exchange.  She waa married to A. W. Henning  who was here with the firm of  Grant Smith tt Co., the contractors  who built thia section of tha Kettle  Valley Ry. She was twenty-four  vears of age, and leavea one little  girl.  Mr. Roy Sweeney haa generously given to the local War Veterana'  Association a free leaae of fifteen  acrea of land at Okanagan Mission  to be used in any way to benefit  the funda of the Association.  The prize drawing contest in  connection with Trenwith's store  came to an end on Christmas Eve,  the winning numbers being declared aa follows: First, 412, for  the doll; second, 1239, for the  reading lamp ; third, 3581, for the  express wagon.  Five hundied and seventeen  ships have been added to the Britiah navy aince August, 1914. The  new ve/sels) include seven battleships, five battle cruisers, twenty-six  light cruisers, seventeen monitors,  230 destroyers and 232 mine  sweepers and special aervice craft.  The former German empreaa will  hardly live to aee the new year, it  is stated. Her ailment, heart disease, haa grown conaiderably worse  during the past exciting weeks.  Previously, for aeveral months, she  had suffered from the effects of a  stroke of apoplexy. The condition  of the former empress haa had a  aerious effect on her husband, who  also is seriously ill. It is feared that  hia ear trouble will spread to the  brain. Alao, his nervous condition  is bad.

A meeting was held in Vernon  last week in the interests nf the  Y.M.C.A. movement for town and  country work.  The meeting was addressed by  Mr. C. D. Thornton, secretary for  the Town and Country Wotk Department ol the National Council of  Y.M.C.A. (Western Division), who  staled that the objret nf this movement >vas (or the organization of  men (or community service, replacing of leadership lost by the war;  provision (or an enlistment of returned men in community activities ; conservation o( boy life ; increased p.oduction and better aocial conditions. It was a work where  personal force was primary, equipment secondary, and in which  groups of men under local volunteer leadership carry out a program  giving emphasis to the religious,  educational, social and physical  development.  lt was proposed to have a diatrict  of this nature for the citiea of Enderby, Armstrong, Vernon, Kelowna  and Penticton, each city having  its own local board consisting of  three or more men, who would be  organized with committeea on boys  work, recreational work, religion,  education, community aervice and  finances, and each local board to  have members elected to the district committee whose duly it would  be to supervise the work and employ a trained secretary, who would  reside in the district and give hia  entire time to the work. His duties  would be to organize the boya into  groups or clubs, each such group  being organized with its own offic-  eis of boys, thus teaching self gov  eminent and appealing to the sense  of ownership. The men of the  community are organizing into a  group for the purpose of training,  in Christian leadership, in a atudy  of community problems and of initiating and aupervising agenciea  for improvement of rot imunity life  and auch other activilies aa are required for the individual needa of  each city.  An annual budget ot  approxim  ately $3500 would be required for  the district composed of  the  aaid  cities, and it  would   be  necessary  before the trained secretary of the  Y.M.C.A.   would  coinmei.ee that  there be sufficient pledges to ensure  two years' work for such secretary.  It was desided   to  endorse   the  movement; but as it waa  (elt  the  number present was not sufficiently  large to adequately  represent the  city, it waa decided  that  nothing  further be done until such time aa  the other citiea had also endorsed  the plan and to await the  date  of  the convention of  delegatea  from  the interested cities. i  We heard from Mr. Zimmerman  ol Summerland laat week, and two  teams, possibly three, are anxious  to come up and pint basketball  just as soon as the "Flu" ban is  lifted. That meana that there will  be at least 15 visiting Scouts whom  we should like to billet around the  different local homes. The visitors  will come up on a Fridav morning  the matches will be plaved that  evening, or if there are three teams  one match will be played in the  afternoon, and they will return  home on Saturday afternoon's boat.  We should like to hear from anv  of our scouts or their parents nr  friends immediately who will be  able to billet one or two of our  visitors for this occasion. Telephone  any of the leaders or the scout-  master. We have to make all arrangements some little lime ahead.  After the matches we shnll send  down teams to Summerland for  return matches. Any scout in our  troop who hopes to get on a team  must attend practices regularly.  Before these matches wilh Summerland we hope to put on a match  between two good local teams, and  also to persuade the ladies to put  on a match the same evening. We  shall announce the date as sonn ns  the "Flu" ban is lifted.  The scoutmaster has just had a  letter from Assistant Scoutmaster  Keon, saying he expects to be back  in Vancouver immediately. We  hope lhat he will be able to get  down to work with us again.  S. M. Atkinson, formerly of Penticton, but who is now attending  St. Mark'a Anglican Theological  College in Vancouver, aenda ua his  beat wishes for Christmas and the  New Year, which we heartily reciprocate.  The following appears in the  November Headquartera Cazelte,  and we believe refers to none other  than Mr. Leggatt, who waa our firat  Scoutmaster:���  "'Incompetent German Scouts.'  Captain W. Leggett, M.C., formerly  a member of the 19th Greenwich  Troop, after eighteen montha imprisonment escaped from Germany  and recently paid a viait to his  old troop. In speaking to the boys  he described how on the first day  of hia escape he waa hiding in a  thicket and aome' German Boy  Scouts came along. 1 hey had apparently been sent out to track the  escaped prisoners, but fortunately  (or the escaped ones, the trackera  did everything a scout ahould not  do. A scout ahould see and not  be aeen, arid hear and not be heard,  Theae Cerman Scouls shouted and  look up positions in the open road  so that the prisoner in hiding knew  where they were and what they  were up to. The acouta noticed a  board up by the thicket aaying  'forbidden to enter' and so instead  of surmising that was probably the  very place a prisoner would hide  in, they left it severely alone. Captain Leggatt said that if these scouts  h'ad been trained as good English  ones are, he would not have stood  a ghost of a chance of getting out  of Germany."  TIP, NERVOUS  Officials of the department of  agriculture predict lhat the definite  removal of the three years' embar.  go on the importation of applea  into Great Britain is going to be a  fine thing for Canadian apple-growers.' In Nova Scotia there'are 200,-  000 barrels of applea atill in cold  atorage. Theae can be readily exported to Great Britain.

If a merchant or a manufacturer is willing to  spend good money for advertising, to ask you to  try his store or his product, it stands to reason  that he must have something worth offering.  Otherwise you would not go back, or you would  not again purchase the product, and the first sale  vvould be the last. In that case advertising would  NOT pay. It only pays when it brings continuous patronage, and to do that there must be real  value given. That is the reason advertised  stores or products are almost invariably good. It  will pay you to patronize the advertisers.
