Regular Meeting of  ��� City CooDCil  Milk By-Law is Approved by  Lieut.-Govenor  Entomological Society  Meets io Kelowna  Valuable and Interesting Addresses on Insect Life  There was a full attendance at last  Friday's meeting oi tha oounoil al  though little business of importune*  was transacted except tha passing of a  long list of aocounta.   'm*y ���  The correspondence inoluded a certificate of approval from the Lieutem  ant Govornor-in-council 'of ths city's  "Milk Vendor's Bylaw, No. 163."  Chief Thomas was appointed Sanitary Inspector and will undertake the  duties oalled for under the bylaw.  Br. Boyos waited on ths council  with a suggestion that the oity call  a public mooting to discuss the idvis-  ability of forming a local oorps ol  "Home Guards". He said that in  view of the present situation it might  be a wise precaution to see that every  one capable of bearing arms had a  ohanee to receive some kind of military training.  Mayor Jones assured Br. Bbyoethat  if a petition were presented to the  council bearing at least fifty signatures the council would be willing to  call the masting.  While he was before the council Br.  Boyos asked for permission to purchase a milk tester, which he would  need as Medical Health Officer under  the provisions of the Milk Bylaw. Tho  cost .would be approximately 15. Tho  purchaao was authorized. .1  A question touching upon the trades  lioenoe bylaw of the city wasf raised  when Mr. C. Bark asked ths council  whether one trado lioenoe should not  bs sufficient for himself and another  man, who wars transacting business in  the same room, he as a shoemaker,  and the other as a tailor.  Mr. Dark was informed that sopar.it  Usances would be raquirod unless a  legal partnership were formed between  them.  Mr. R. E. Denison appeared on behalf of Messrs. Stirling ft PUoairn to  ask that afire hydrant bs plsoed in  front of their premises, his firm being  of the opinion that their property was  not sufficiently proteoted against fire.  Alderman Adams said the packing  house district had been fairly well flavored with fire hydrants, aa four lines  of hose could be laid in oase. of fire.  The Fire Protection committee however undertook to confer with ths lire  chief in reference to the application.  Mr. W. D. Brent, manager of ths Kelowna Growers' Union, asked the eoun  oil to gravel tho lane at the rear of  their properly in order to facilitate  hauling of fruit, and also to put  Haynes avenue in good condition.  The mayor informed Hr. Brent that  the council were only too well aware  of the conditions of tho roads in  question, but Owing to laok of fund*  On Thursday lust the Entomological  Society of British Columbia hold a  very successful semi-annual meeting in  the Kelowna Board ol Trade haX  The meeting was Open' to the public  and, a number of up-to-date fruit grow  ors availed themselves of the opportunity of hearing some of thc interesting papers which were read.  Tho meeting was opened shortly lie-  fore 11 a.m., by Mr. Lionel Taylor  1st vice president with an address on  titled "Problems Entomological i.nd  Pathological requiring solution in our  orchards;" Mr. Taylor touched!! upon  many of the vexing questions whic.i  exorcise local orohardists today and  his remarks gnvo lise to much valuable  discussion of the various problems  treated upon; amongBt other thing-  Mr. Taylor urged upop the aunt inn;  tho desirability of the periodical distribution of information to growrrs as  the prevalent pests and warnings as t  approaching timo to spray for Certain diseases etc., through the milium ot the local press or by the Distribution of'oircular letters. Many of  Mr. Taylors suggestions will no doubt  receive mature consideration in the  future.  Following this address a paper by  the sooioty'a secretary, Mr. R. C. Trc-  horno of tho Dominion division of  Entomology dealing with the "Mulur- paign.  nl Methods of Inseot Control under  Orchard Conditions," Mr. Trobirno,  oalled the attention ol the meeting to  tho growing interest which is holug  evinced in tho matter of natural te-  pistonce of individual plants ao tho  attacks and depredations ol insools,  and to tho correlation ol insect attack to soil conditions suitable    and  strain the forces of the Empire and  enlnil big sacrifices. He laid emphasis on the fact that his position  in the cabinot involved adherence to  neither party.    He said:  "The terms on whieh I am serving  are the samo as those under whioh  some ol the finest portions of our  manhood, now so willingly stepping  forward to join the colors, are engaging. That is to say, my term ol offico  is lor the duration of the war, or for  throe years if the war should last  longer than that. It has been asked  why this period has been limited. It  is because if this disastrous war bo  prolonged, and no one oan foretell for  a certainty its duration, that after  three years of war, others will take  our plaoes and see this matter through  "There will bo serious conflicts which  undoubtedly will strain the forces of  our Empire, and undoubtedly considerable sacrifices to our people will bs  entailed. These will be willingly borne  for our honor and for the preservation of our position in the world, and  they will be shared by our dominions,  who arc now sending contingents and  giving assistance of every kind to the  Mother Country.  "Our expeditionary force has taken  the field on the French northw?st  frontier and advanced in the neighborhood of Mons, in Belgium. Our troops  already have been for thirty-six hours  in contact with the superior forces of  German invaders. During that time  they maintained the best traditions of  the British soldier and behaved with  the utmost gallantry. The movements  they have boen called on to execute  have been those which demand the  greatest steadiness of a soldier and  skill in the commanders."  The condition of Emperor Franz J osef hourly grows worse snd death is  npeoted at any time.  The Canadian Cruiser Niobe is to be in commission by Sept. 1st, petroling the Gulf of St. Lawrence!  Official estimates of the English 1 oss in Sunday and Monday's battle  place tho killed at 2000.  Canada's first army of 22,000 men will be on tho Atlantio by the middle  oi next month.    The mobilization ol another foroe is prooeeding rapidly.  The French ministry has resigned und a. new one is to be formed at  once.  Reports have been reoeived of the intentions of the Germans to attack  Ostend, which is only 65 miles from England, and to use it, as a base of  attack on England. >  The Russian army continues to advance through Prussian territory, and  it is believed that unless the Germans can win a decisive battle at once  over the allies they will be obliged to withdraw some of their forces.  German roports claim that thc Ja panose bombardment of Kiao Chou,  tho German naval base in China, has tailed, but the Japanese announce  the intention to prepare for a long siege.  The Poles have set up an independent government wjth Warsaw as thoir  capital. Russian soldiers have been withdrawn to join the march on Germany.  Thc British Premier told the House oi Commons that it was foolish to  suppose that 100,000 besides the regular army would suffice for the cam-  At least six times that numb er would bo needed.  Premier Asquith made the announcement today in the Houss of Cum-  mons that the German colony ol Tog oland in east Africa had offered to  surrender ou terms. The terms had been refused and an unconditional  surrender was to be made.  Tho fortified Uulglan stronghold ol Namiir has fallen to the Germans after a hIh art struggle.    The official c nu mimical ion says this necessitates the  withdrawal of a portion of tho Allied  troops from ths line of ths Sanibre  to,thoir original defensive position cn   thc French frontier.  What scraps of war news concerning  tho operations ol tho fighting in Belgium whioh havo filtered through thi*  j wook have not bean of a very enoour-  aging character, and the grim fact iB  bning forood home to the minds of  evoryone that the allies are oonfront-  i'il with a stupendous task before they  oan hope to beat down tho strength  of Germany.  After the comparative quiet of last  week tho news that tho Germans had  taken possession of Brussels, compelling tho Belgians to withdraw their  neat of government to Antwerp, that  Namur, a strongly fortified town upon the holding of which the stand in  Belgium largely depended and that'  the Allies had beon obliged to fall  baok upon tho French frontier, produced a deep impression, and the  greatest anxioty was evidenced. Too  much dependence however, should not  bo plnoerl upon reports of detaohed  victories or defeats as they may'count  for but little in the main campaign.  To offset the advantages gained by  tho German army to the' north the  Frenoh have undoubtedly mado Bome  progress 1n Alsace Lorraine, though  the unexpected treachery of some of  the inhabitants is forming a hindrance  The Austrians ' too 'have practically  had to abandon their attack on Servia, having been beaten back with  heavy losses. Added1 to which the  gradual progress of the Russians into  German territory may alter the tone  of things ip a Bhort' time.  Moanwhilo the British government is  united in a determination to see the  thing through.        '  Lord Kitchener made his first speech  Tuesday an minister of war in the  House of Lords.

Until the present crisis King Albert was but little known. Before hs  ascended the throne of Belgium he spent much time in traveling, having visited the United States several years ago and having made a tour of tha  world.  He is a keen student, an author, engineer and aviator. At one time  he acted as a regular reporter on a Belgium newsfiiper, taking his assignments the same as tho other men and covering all suits ol stories.  . The young king is not yet 40 years of age. He was a nephew of King  Leopold who diod in December 1909. He married Duchess Elisabeth of Bavaria in-1900 and they have two sons. Prince Leopold, born in 1901, and  Prince Charles, born in 1903, and ons daughter, Princess Manic Jobs, bora  in 1906.  King Albert's father was Prince Fhillipe, Count of Flanders, and hit  mother was Princess Marie of llohensollcrn. Thus King Albert is related  to the Kaisor, whose army he has been fighting.

The  minutes ol the previous meeting were  read but the correspondence was left  over to the ttext meeting,  President S. T. Elliott reported  briefly on behalf of the special tele-  phono committee appointed to investigate the possibility of securing a "-on-  tinuoua telephone servioe that ths  Okanagan Telephone Company had  agreed to grant thia. (Applause.)  Mention was also mads of the visit  of ths delegates to tbe Irrigation Convention at Pentioton, and it was resolved to send a messsgs ol thanks  to C.P.R. Superintendent Brodie of  Vanoouver for allowing-the boat conveying the visitors up the lake to stop  over at Kelowna while they were  driven on a tour of inspection ol the  district, and also to secretary N.  Rankino, and Mr, Dynes, of Penticton  for their efforts in securing the favor.  It was stated that word had    been  ceived from tho militia headquarters  at Ottawa asking as to the possibility of purchssing remounts in the Ke-  the curious vice, who  were settling themselves down lo enjoy the blissful dreams which ere  said to oome to those who smoke.  They had a rude awakening, however,  for tho proprietor, and four of the  men were at once arrested, and after  being charged with the offence were  let out on bail, the proprietor of  f 100 and eaoh of tbe others of $20.  The eash was deposited promptly, but  on Monday morning only one of ths  men showed up for trial, tho rest  electing to forfeit their bail rather  than face ' tho magistrate.. Tht  one who did oome out, York Lang  was found guilty and fined 120.  This York Lang, it was stated haa  a white wife, an American lady ot  undesirable reputation, the pair having only recently arrived in town.  Mr. J. E.

The meeting which wns held in the  Board ol Trade room and presided  ovor by the president ol the association, Mr. F. R. E. DeHart, was well  attended.  There had been considerable talk on  the street lately, ��aid the chairman  as to whether in view ol present conditions thc association would be justified in holding the fair thie year, and  the directors had called the members  together to get an expression of opinion before taking upon themselves the  responsibility ol incurring further expense,  Reviewing the present financial  standing of the association it was  stated that the present indebtedness  amounted to $2370, including a sum  of 81950 due the bank on the new  building and debts carried over from  last year. The annual government  grant of about SHOO would have lo bo  applied in reducing this debt and  would not therefore be available as in  previous years, towards the expenses  of the fair. It would be necessary to  raise this 8800 in somo other way to  ensure the success of the fair. Fears  were also expressed by several speakers that thc revenue from gate receipts, etc.. might be less than usual.  Mr. M. Hereron with his usual optimism was strongly opposed to the  idea ol allowing the fair to be dropped  and believed if an appeal was made  to the larmers of the distriot for support there would be no difficulty in  holding a bigger and better fair than  ever, and coming out ahead financial-  ���y.  Mr. J. II. Davies was also enthusiastically in lavor ol holding the lair  and some form of sports  The great success of the "Stampede"  which took the place of the usual races last year was mentioned and the  idea of having a similar program this  year had many supporters.  The urgent need ol cutting down expenses to the lowest point without  impairing tho attractiveness ol the  fair was fully realized, and it waa  upon that understanding that the ultimate decision to go on with the-  undertaking was reached.  The great increase in exhibits ol  Jive stock was one of the features of  Inst years show, and the present prise  list, whieh was already printed had  been drawn up with a view to further  encoursge this branch.  Mr. Dolfart said he had already had  a promise from ths Hon. Minister ol  Agriculture to officiate at tbe opening  nf the fair, and Mr. Ellison had also  signilied his intention of entering a  number of his-splendid herd of Uol-  steins.  But little interest was manifested in  the auction sale of lands for taxes  held on Tuesday the 18th inst., at  Summerland. With ths exception of  one five aore lot which was bid in by  a private citizen the properties were  purchased by the municipality.  According to messages from llerlin,  the German press is indignant at  Great Britain's acceptance of .lupao-  i* support. ' The leading papers declare that Germany will retaliate by  stirring up an lalnmit'c revolution in  India, Egypt, Tunis, Algeria and the  Soudan which will quickly bring England and France to terms.  Methods of Modern  Fighting  ihe glory and romanoe ol war is  dead. It has become chiefly a matter  of cold calculation, ��i bloody business ol long distance slaughter, with'  no longer an opportunity for >iash-  ing personal heroism. e  Nover again can a Napoleon, lacking down from a hill top, direct the  movements ol his army ol 30,000 men  as it manoeuvres under his eye on  the plain below.  The modern gonoral, directing a  battle line 150 miles long ���will nover  be within sight of his troops. Oyama  the Japanese ohief of staff, was 15  miles to the rear whon' that great-  battle wns fought at Mukdon.  Nover again will a courier bearing  orders from headquarters to division  and corps commanders have two  horses shot under him as he .lashes  across the battle front. Orders go out.  today from headquarters over tho  field telephone wires, which real')'  every brigade commander as lie too  sits in safety far baok ol the line of  lire. -  Never again will a' battery ol field  guns gallop madly into action, with  the gunners sitting with cross arms  on the caissons and the infautiy  cheering thc rescuers.  Modem field guns are located out of  sight over tho shoulder of a hill throe  miles or more oway. The gunners  never even get a sight ol the army  they are fireing at. Their fire is guided  by calculations carefully made by an  expert mathematician who sits down  in a hole in tho ground and aiirui'0.4  trajectories and curves 'and' makes ail  allowances for wind pressure.  No Close Fighting  "Hold your lire until you, see the  whites ol the onemy's eyes" is a heroic command that will never be given  in a modern battle. Modern infantry  dig themselves a nice deep ditch in  the ground about two miles away  from tho fire of the enemy's lines. To  the present day soldier the spade is  almost as important as the gun. He  gets down into his ditoh so that only  his eyes and tho top of hiB head are  in sight at all. And he looks across  an apparently empty plain to where  in the dim distance, he is told the  hostile entronchments lie.  Nover in a modern battle picture  will a solid column aof oharging men  be shown, rallying round their cherished battle flag, which can be seen  but dimly through the clouds ol blank  smoke. ,  Flags Nover Carried  There aro no battle flags, no smiik-  and no charging columns op modern  battlefields. Tho presence ot a flag  on thc battle line would instantly reveal its location to the enemy.  Smokeless powder has taken the  place of the old oloud-belcbing explosive, and one may look over a modern battlefield, with 100 field guns in  action, and not be able to locate a  single one of them. As for solid columns ol charging men, a modern in  fantry attack is a far different affair,  On almost any modern battlefield is  will bo found that each of the cc  tending parties will have in its possession maps showing every most  minute variation ol the ground. It  is likely that each commander will  have copies ol his enemie'e field maps,  as well as his own. One of the delightful leatures ol modern warfare is  the creation of an international spy  system, through whioh the various  nations attempt to obtain by bribery  and theft the maps and war secrets  of each other.  Methods ol Procedure  On these maps there may be shown  300 or more yards in advance ef ths  first trench occupied by the infantry  a small brook running through a  shallow ditoh. The immediate object  ol the infantry is to move torwaitV  and'occupy thut now cover,  . First the field guns���and nowadays  a whole regiment of such guns, each  of whioh can fire ten shrapnel shots  minute is the recognized artillairy  unit���do their best to smother ths  enemy's artillery (ire and to drown  his trenches in a Hood of bullets.  Shrapnel Shells  Each shrapnel shell bursts into  from 100 to 200 projectiles. Then,  while this fire is at its height, tn*  infantry gets up���a squad of two at a  time���and runs, dodging and bent  over, to the ditoh through whloh  flows the little stream. They take advantage ol every little hillock. A  rise of a single foot will afford fairly good protection for a man who  lies flat on the ground. So, by lite  and starts, they run and they drop  behind quickly dug and shallow embank lines. All the time the field,  guns are firing a rain of shrapnel  over their heads. It is this delicate  task ol the gunners to so etirpe their  shells that they shall burst when they  reach the enemy's lines and not b*>  | fore, else th* bullets may   kill    their  A  ENTOMOLOGICAL SOCIETY  MEETS AT KELOWNA  (Continued Irom Pan 1.)  susceptibility ol the host plants they  adopt   in their new'surroundings, those! aaasaaaaaaaaaaaas.  being.more susceptible to injury than unable to be present  tho lood plant ol the insect in ilsj Aata was presented,  own country whioh havo been subject iUB0 ol orucie'   distillate and othor oil  presence" tbe writers claimed do** not  necessarily infer the existence of malaria, as in eastern Canada Anopheles  Maculiphennis is comparatively r.o -  mon, though malaria according to reports is now of rare occurrence, while  hi England, in certain malarial districts the disease has disappears  whilst the mosquitos show no corresponding decrease in numbers.

It was .also shown  that plants introduced into a country  fall an easier prey to Insects attack  than do allied forms native to the  country which by constant attack ot  the insects have i/ttained some vigor  to reBist attack. Mr. Trehcrne Impressed on his hearers the desirability  the oo-operotion between entomologists  and propagators, nurserymen and  plant breeders that tho question of dis-  ease rcsiBtanoe might enter more largely into the mako up ol the many new  varieties of plants which aro being  bred for greater size hardiness and  perfection of color, etc.  Mr. Max Ruhman next presented- a  review of "The Comparative Prevalence of Insect Pests in various parts  of the Okanagan," giving a comprehensive account of the depredatiiins, in  different sections of many of our commoner . insect pests.  Mr. Thos. Cunningham, provincial  fruit inspector then addressed the meet  ing on "Conditions Relative to thc  Codling Moth" givingGa history oi tho  outbreak of this disease at sworut  points in tho province of recent yean  and the manner in which tho pest was  introduced, impressing the meeting  with the full seriousness and value of  the careful inspection and searching  of all possible sources of infection  from this disease owing to thc trivial  and unsuspected manner in which the  disease has sometimes proved itself to  be introduced.

Mr. Lyne also drow the attention ot  tho meeting lo the necessity for the  most exacting care and thoroughness  being used in the eradication of this  disease and mentioned a number of  ways by which thc insects in various  stages may avoid destruction during  a campaign if vigilanco is relaxed in  any way. Mr. Lyne also called for  thc co-operation of interested parties.  Mr. II. II. Creese, Assistant Fruit  Pest Inspeotor then followed with  some notes anh samples, illustrating  thc "Practical Farm Manufacture of  Combined Insecticides." Mr. Cn-.ee  showed a number ol interesting sum  pies of new combination sprays whioh  alter furthir trial under field cona!.-  tions would promise to .be of considerable value in the spray calendar.

Mr. Tom Wilson of /the Dominion  Fruit Inspection Department next ud-  dressed tbe mooting on the subject of  "Insect Pollination ol Plants," giving  the results ol a series of experiments,  extending over several years, v\h  apple blossom under cover of muslin  bags, proving the almost invariable  infertility and unproductiveness of  blossoms not visited by insects.  Prolessor Wilson of the Oregon Agricultural College, Cornwallis, Oregon,  though unable to be present kindly  contributed a series of notes on "B.C.  Aphida," including descriptions of a  species newOto science and one new to  North Amerioa which Professor Wilson  collected on a visit to British Columbia in the summer of last year.  The evening session was taken    up  with an interesting address by Mr. J,  W. Eastham, recently appointed    provincial    plant pathologist.     In     the  course    of his address.   Mr. Eastham  discussed the part played by insects in  the dissemination of disease, with . especial reference to the part they pay  in the spread of fire blight, and    led  the meeting towards    its final    business, u general disouseion of the v/h'ile  subject of fire blight led by Hr. Thos,  Cunningham,    Mr, Max Ruhman    an  Mr. Ben Hoy, and entered into     with  enthusiasm by many of the members  present and by local fruit growers.  Tne meeting was honored in the afternoon by a visit from Mayor Jones  who, in a brief and cordial way     expressed his great interest in the work  of the society, and offered the City's  welcome to the visiting members, and]  oonoluded in   wishing tho sooiety    a[  very successful    meeting, and     future  welfare.  During tho course ol the mooting it  was announced that Mr. Trehcrne was  about to relinquish tho secret aryanip  ol the society,, nnd Mr. Tom Wilson  proposed' that a sincere vote of thanks  be passed to Mr. Trehcrne for lhe good  services he had rendered to the sooiety  which when Mr. Treherne first oame  to British Columbia was Buffering from  suspended animation. Mr. Trehei  pieced together the remains of lho old  Entomological Society and largely by  ��� by his efforts it hns grown to bo the  strong, active and vigorous institutio  it is today.  The resolution w*s seconded by Mr.  Cunningham, who expressed his hope  that Mr. Treherne would still find himself able to take active interest in the  doings ol the society, even should he  be removed from the immediate sphere,  of its activities.  Tho resolution was carried unanimously by a standing vote and suit  ably acknowledged by Mr. Treherne.  Alter a vote had been proposed b  Mr. Cunningham and seconded by Mr,  Creese, and carried, thanking Mr. I.  E.

Tho Germans  also ask Jl 0,000,000 from the city of  .Liiege.

It is supposed that the demand was  accompanied by threats to destroy the  beautiful publio buildings of the oities.  ���  ��  ���  The government is investigating tha  question of possible confiscation of  German investments belonging to combatants in the present war which havs  been made in Canada, and which aggregate over 8100,000,000. It was announced two years ago that the Kai-  himself had invested largely in  British Columbia timber and mining  property. His agent in Canada ia  Baron Alvo von Alvensleben, Lieutenant of the German army, and it is  stated that the latter, who maintains extensive offices in Vancouver  and other provincial centres, has invested during tbe last three years considerable German capital in British  Columbia timber limits to the extent  of (39,000,000. No definite confirmation of this is available from ths Dominion department of the Interior, bnt  officials are now probing the matter.  Possibly part of Canada's war budget  may be financed by the simpls process of confiscation of German money  now in Canada. That has already  been done in Germany in the case of  British investments there. Cancellation of all German and Austrian patents held in Canada is another likely  step.   0   GERMANS IN CANADA WOULD  AVOID FRICTION  Theodore Sohmidt, president of the  German-Canadian Provincial Alliance,  has written a message to his countrymen In Saskatenewan, calling upon  them to avoid all causes of friction in  order that the Canadian government  may not suffer embarassment during  the continuance of the war.  "All Germans will agree with mo,"  he says, "that it is almost/ unbelievable that two nations so olosely related as Great Britain and Germany  should bs at war with one another.  I think they will alao agree that we  should pray for a speedy end to tho  animosity whioh exists between th?  two greatest states in the world. Bitter indeed it ia for us who love our  new home, to see this war, tor our  hearts still continue to ding to our  old home land where our eradlss stood  But this country is our adopted home  and there oan be no doubt that all  our German friends sincerely wish ths  best for Canada."  An official statement was made a  few days ago that deliberate attempts  were being made by the enemy to  spread abroad false reports of defeats  and disasters to the allies, hoping to  profit by the resulting panic.  9    9.

OLD COUNTRY CROPS GOOD  The harvesting of wheat is finished  in some sections of England, and the  yield is well above the average. The  potato crop is very large, being sufficient, -without any addition from imports, to supply the demand lor a  year. Advices are to the effeot that  the cargoes of wheat in American vel-  sels which, sailing Monday for United  Kingdom ports total 1,544,000 bushels.  Information as to the harvests in  Germany and Austria-Hungary Indicate that these countries will not have  a sufficient production of. wheat, barley, oats and corn to supply their  own needs, and that they will have  to make large importations to prevent suffering. The question arises as  to whore they will obtain the required  supplies. Grain being a contraband  of war when sent to hostile countries,  it will not be permitted to enter Germany.  -THE-  "WIGWAM" TEA ROOMS  (Three doors north ef Bank of Montreal)  English Cooking.

BURBANK MOTOR GO.   .   .   KELOWNA, B.C.  Water AMnstration in British Columbia  An Address by Wm. Young, Comptroller of Water Rightt, at  the Irrigation Convention at Penticton  Aa tho province developed since  1900, and large undertakings were  launched, whether in irrigation or  land, development of power, or coal-  struotion of waterworks, it became  more and more obvioui* that administration under the Water Clauses Act  of 1897 was ineffective.  The Water Aot of 1909, an attempt  to overeaime this InelTeotivenesB wus  good so Eur ns it went but the diafi-  culties llmt arose from year to year  necossitated annual amendment until,  D am told, thc Water Act boenmo ths  joke of tlio session. Those, however,  who hnve mndo a close study of wator  administration, consider the amendments ol 1913 and 1914 of far reaching importance for tnoy not only provide that which tho Aot was lacking  in, namely, administrative machinery,  but crentod such order in tho arrangement that now tho procedure can  be easily followed.  Tho Act of 1913 came in for much  criticism, a great deal ol it unmerited.  Tnlk, however, is chenp, and the opinions expressed would fill volumes.  Improvement only comes through experience and the Act. of 1914 as it  t'anris may bo said to represent tho  effort ol not only experience in British  Columbia, not only the experience of  many who have given a liletimc to  wnter administration in America, but  nlso the investigation of wator laws  of the Umpire. Wo do not oloim that  the Act is now perfect; conditions la.-u-o  arisen nnd will Continue to ariso that  will, from time to timo require addition nnd possibly amendment to meet  them. ,  The purposes for whioh water rivals  may be acquired aro 14 in number as  set out in the beginning of tne Act,  nnd, if you will rend through the Ait  you will find that of these three purposes stand out with prominence.  Irrigation by Individual Community,  Company, Municipality or Corporation ��� Power and Waterworks.  Around these the administration machinery is being built, such machinery  being capable ol taking oare ol I ho  remaining purposes which arc .'.lsp  important. A broad distinction in  purposes howevor may be said to exist; purposes that affect tho publio interest and   purposes that affect     tho  have in many districts proven of assistance to water applicants aod users  and that there mignt bo uniformity of  effort, and order nf work was adopted  comprising eight different lines.  Systematic and Continuous work in  Stream Gauging ��� Study of the  proper duty on water ��� The prevention of wasteful use of water ~  l'olioing tho Streams ��� Economic  distribution and delivery ol water  ��� Inspecting water systems to determine their efficiency and safety  ��� Determination of storage possi-  biMtica ��� Investigation of water  powers.  As already stated,  practically nine-  tenths ol the timo ol the distriot   sn-  gineers nnd field foroes have boen taken up with investigation ol old     records and in the circumstances     the  administration ot    water under     the  several heads could not bo carried out  during 1913 in the manner we would  havo   liked.     Now that this    special  work is about finished, the main work  is gradually being taken up and   already considerable haB beon done     in  one or other of tho lines mentioned!  You will note that this order     of  work involves    tho throe groat     purposes referred to, whioh aro of greater  or loss importance according to     the  district.     In this district that    which  is of greatest importance is irrigation,  although   other   purposes   havo their  place.  IRRIGATION  Administration of wator for irriga  tian iB undoubtedly    tho   most   Com*  plicated.     Prior to the Act of    1914  there was no provision that would enable the officers   to copo with conditions that existed, and in the eircum  stancos    thoir hands   woro practically  tied.   Tho A*ot ol    1914   inoluded now'  Boctions which comprise tho basic pria*  ciploB that make administration possible.   Theso are as follows;  Limiting the quantity to heneficrit  ubo, that is to soy: tho quantity ol  water used por acre shall bo limitod to  such quantity as oxporionco may from  time to time indicate to be necessary  for tho production of crops in the ex-  oroiso of good husbandry.  Rotation in use,���when a number of  water users arrange a Systran of rotation that will best meet the requiro-  indlvidual.     In    the light of this wo   ments' of growing    crops and at  have the Wator Rights Branch in  process of organization to effectually  administer theso great purposes - in  particular. Beginning March 1st, 1913,  each step taken has been retained but  it will roquire time to jomploto il  tbe best results aro to obtain.  Investigation ol    conditions    during  same time secure an economic use ol  water.  Consideration ol the particular crop  grown,���A provision whioh opens tho  way for adjustment that is in the interest ot a community as a wholn.  It is not the intention to take up  your time    here in an argument  1912 showed conclusively thut lifn.vj what kind of crops should be grown;  water rights throughout tho province for example whether a man should  inoluding the railway belt could be grow timothy and attempt a second  administered with any totUluction,' crop, or grow allalla securing several  old records, ol which there wore ubout crops and with greater economy o<  8000, would rcipiire investigation and, wator, I do not consider myso'f  adjudication thereon.

BIGGER  BUILDER AND CONTRACTOR  Estimates Furnished for all classes  of work  Recent amendments to tha act in Hua  respect were few, but of great' importance. It is no longer possible for a  company to organise with the minimum of capital permissible in tlio  Companies' Act for an undertaking requiring several millions of dollars foe  construction. Administration in the  long run is now simplified by making  it impossible for a speculative clement to secure and hold a valuable  franchise. And since the purpose ol  "power" is governed by the rules und  regulations that provide not only for  construction within a reasonable time  but regulation during, the time of operation.  The chief work of power administra-  ! tion begins with the operation period.  For the present the determination   nf  fees to be charged is occupying     o-jr  attention.   Under the rules and regulations they may be based on reasonable station output.    This year    wo  are taking this as the average    daily  horse power arrived at from the iot.-il  annual output in kilowatt hours    r.t  the power house switchboard.   ���  Hydro-elootrio powor, however    is a  specialty    and wc ' will is due course  have a section of   our staff devoting  its wholo time    to its administration  and study.   As respects the latter, tho  problem that is of economic importance is "to what extent should    tho  Crown   have interested?"    We     havo  the example of tho Ontario hydro-electric, the progress of whioh we    much  follow,   analyzing   reports and   criticisms pro and con.   And there is   iho  other side, tha principle that alt publio utilities ns natural monopolies ho  placed under regulation by tho Crown  Tho work of investigation of witer  powers will include all streams tint  promise power, be they small or \atge,  Tho value of the small power oannoi  bo overestimated; thoir investigation  will be thorough, as reliable data on a  small power may mean to some community in its vicinity, tho establishment of an important industry.  WATER WORKS  Tho third groat purpose to which 1  havo referred as being of public ntor-  p��t is waterworks.6 Thoro are BOmo  Iiero who havo _ lived in eaBtorn cities  and come through a scourge or two  of typhoid. To you the importance  ot proper administration cannot be  overestimated. Aside from tile general  office work in the issue of licences, us"  have kept an engineer and party ' investigating watersheds from which domestic water is drawn by centres ol  population. The order of wark is:  Determination of drainage area ��� Kx-  to��t of run-off or / systematic  - stream gauging, ��� Timber cruising  to determine how much is merchantable and whether or not the umber sb a whole is a factor in the  regulation of stream flow ��� Alienated timber ��� Alienated land, the  purpose for which it is held ���  Other rights whether water oi  mineral and the use to which such  are being put.  The value ol the results to obtain  from this, work must become of gi cater importance from year to year, and  with the co-operation of an active  provincial board of health there should  be available for tbo various centres of  population, data that will be a gn do  in securing and -guarding sources ' cl  purs domestic water. fl  CONCLUSION  I havo referred I <j the duties of the  district engineers ns covering - those  great purposes. It must be obvious  to you that it will ba impoBsiblo lor  thorn to give evory lino of work laid  down the attention it merits. For eff-  amplo,- toko "Duty ol Water", ����� wrrk  that will demand ilia whole time u(  one man who must specialize in 'l  It is not the intention that the <l;f  triot engineers will bo relieved of responsibility here, on tha contrary thoir  oo operation ia essentia]. Then s.^ain  there is special work arising in lhe  formation of irrigation corporations.  a work on whioh tbo board ol investigation and tho comptroller and staff  have a joint responsibility and although the prospective corporations  now before us are being dealt with,  a qualified man must be placed In  charge of some phases of it. The administration, ol power and waterworks  require similar treatment. And what  about stream gauging?  Whon tho province took ovor from  the Dominion the administration ot  wator rights in the, railway unit, the  latter decided to oontinuo on with its  hydrographio survey. It wns considered that it would bo advantageous (o  the province if it could co-operate  with ths Dominion along linos similar  to those in operation in the United  States. An agreement was accordingly arrived at and so we have tbe P.  0. hydrographers who are now gaug  ing all the important streams sooth ol  the railway belt. These men nave no  administrative powers in respect of  water rights, they are simply observers and recorders of stream flow nnd  run off from year to year over periods  that will give complete cycles for each  stream. Our district engineers are to  an extent relieved of this work, except in sections where irrigation is  practiced and administration diroctb  depends on it.  ,Now it may appear to some that  since the procedure in acquiring water  rights is lixed by law, officers empowered to issue and administer rules and  regulations approved of by tht Lieutenant Governor in .council for carrying out tis spirit, Intent, meaning  and purpose of the act, 'an ordsr of  work laid down, all that is expeotsd  ol the offioials is that they carry on  the work of systematizing. There is  however, a larger sphere thai can' only be appreciated by a vision of what  British Columbia might be if its population was 4 million instead of 400,-  000. If the administration1 of wa'ir  rights is to count for anything, the  requirements of the different sections  of the country must be anticipate! If  this valley is to develop, hydrographio and topographio surveys are as necessary as land surveys. It will ��� �� cf  interest to some of you to know that  within two years there will be a complete topographic surveys of this valley for the determination of watersheds the work now being well advanced. It is hoped that by that  time every creek in the valley will be  traversed and every reservoir possibilities investigated, stream gauging al-  tho whilo being carried- on. ,  Just another instance ol the importance of anticipation. In the rcom*.  report of the agricultural commission  reference is made to, woll drilling and  in all probability1 it will be consider-  ed when parliament again meets. If  the problem is to be intelligently  dealt with, then tho honorable the  minister should hove a report of what  has already been accomplished in the  province. By December it will be complete and will comprise ana analysis  tho attempt of 15 years ago in the  railway bolt and complete information  ol some 200 wells in the Fraser River  delta. Also general information oi  how this work is handled in other  tail. Well drilling means large expenditure oi mono}' and far that reason,  countries with figures of costs in detail. Well drilling means largo ex  pandituro of money and for that reason. If any policy is formulated it  must be upon lines tnat will ensure  tho greatest success possible.  The success of any administration depends upon the principles laid down  In the case ol water rights, a know  lodge of business, engineering and somo  branches of law is involved. Ileoiu-ia  of this, the principles enunciated by a  recent writer particularly apply. There  are: Decision, initiative, preliminary  planning, suborhination of detail, discipline and concentration to pi euro  success.  Notwithstanding what may be your  opinion of how tar wo have upplicd  the first five of theso, we havo lived  up to the last one in respect of tho  old records. As already stated this  special field work will be practically  completed this year. The success  that has attended the board ot investigation in its adjudication is encouraging. Out of 3000 decisions to date,  but three appeals have boen made and  two of theso are now in default. Wa  are hopeful this measure of siiccee.-,  will continue, and as respects administration a beginning has been raadi.fi  Frank Knaptoo  NEXT TO TAITS  SHOE STORE, ON  BERNARD AVNE.

The Publio Works oommittee hod laid  off all their teams, and any farther  work upon the streets this year would  depend upon payment of taxes.  t Alderman Rattenbury said tl at realizing the need for economy in every  direction, several people had spoken  to him ,is respect to the building Inspector's salary. Tbe question bad  been asked whether in view of the  cessation of building operates, such  an oflioial was neosssary, or at any  rate, whether the salary attached ' to  the position should not be reduced for  a time. As the matter had been mentioned to him he felt obliged to bring  it before the council,  The question was referred to the  Building committee to investigate and  report at neat meeting.  Alderman Taylor, chairman of the  Sewerage committee invited ths members ol the council to visit the sewerage disposal works that afternoon at  3.30, when the; "Imhoff" tank would  be blown off for the first time.   *  Mayor .Jones reported that be htd  been informed by Mr. Crawford that  the cost of the, special war news furnished by him since the comuumoo-  ment of hostilities was too heavy for  him to bear alone and that ths ter  vice would be discontinued unless he  received some monetary assistance.  The council after some discussion decided to contribute a, sum, not exceeding one dollar per day until the next  regular meeting.  The following accounts were passed  for payment:  W.

He was sure they  all realized the great peril in which  the empire was placed at the present  moment from the war which was proceeding in Europe, Kelowna had already given many men to help in the  defence of their country, and it was  a matter for pride.to see the readiness and enthusiasm with whioh they  had responded to thc call for rolun-  teers. The latest war despatches wore  more serious than they had imagined  and ho wns Buro each one .wanted to  da, his uttuost to help. He had noticed that in Vancouver there was i  movement on foot to form the basic  of a volunteer "home ,guard" and lhe  suggestion had been made to form a  similar body here. He would call  upon Dr. Boyce, who had approached  thc council on tho matter to explain  his ideas.  Dr. Boyce, said he had talked with  lew of the citizens about taking steps  for home defence in case of need, and  they had thought it advisable to call  a public meeting to discuss the matter. Accordingly he had, along with  Mr. McLaren, got up n petition signed by some sixty citizens asking the  council to call a meeting. He thought  it would be a good idea to get wire  one taa act as drill master and drill  all who were willing, so that if a  second call for volunteers was male  they would have some material icily  and so save time.  Messrs. Pooley, Dart, Stone, James,  Dennison, Rogers, DeHart, Dr. Thayer,  Copt. Brush and Major Perry took  part in the subsequent discussion, but  it was evident that it was impossible  without further information to formulate any definite plan of organisation.  Numerous, more or less conflicting  suggestions were made, the concensus  of opinion being in favor of some ba aly  not attached to the regular militia,  which, however could act as a feeder  to the militia if more men were called  lor.  Ultimately a committee was appointed on the suggestion of the Mayor, consisting of Capt. Brush, Mr.  Dennison, Dr. Boyce, W. H. Crawford,  G. F. James, A. R. Pooley and E. M.  Carruthers, to make enquiries as to  a practicable scheme and report to a  meeting which would be announced  later.  The committee remained in consultation for some time after the public  had dispersed and drew up a letter to  Major Snyder, the acting commissioner of the H.N.W.M.P., at Vancouver,  who was endoavoring to organize  home guard there.  Major Snyder was informed that the  meeting had been in favor of forming  n semi-military body of special constables, much on the same standing as'  the Mounted Police for service in Kelowna and thc immediate vicinity.  Many citizens whose health or home  ties would prevent them from volunteering for active service might thus  givo excellent help in .effecting thd  security of thoir own country. The  letter also asked for information aa  to the steps necessary to procure drill  manuals and rifles.  DRESSMAKING WANTED.-ljy Mrs.  R.

PEASE.  S.M. GOME. Sec.  P.O. Boa 3*2  The Gazette announces the decision  of the British government to put into  force the Declaration ot London as  though it had been ratified. This decision was taken in view of the fact  that British, French and Russian navies are acting jointly and France nnd  Russia had given notice of their intention to act in accordance with the  provisions' during the present hostilities. This means that neutral goods  are not subject to seizure on'the sea.  Dominion Fruit Inspector Jonason,  of Ottawa was in Kelowna for a short  time last- week. In company with Mr.  J. E. Reekie he visited many of the  orchards of the district,, expressing  very great pleasure and satisfaction  with the condition of things in general.
