 fl  MAR 6   1912  VOL. IV.   NO. 14.  KELOWNA. BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY.  FEB. 29, 1912.  $1.50 Per Annum.  Meeting of  City Council  Inquiry to be Made Into Con-  ditions-in Chinatown  Tlie city council met Monday  morning, with a full attendance,  Mayor Jones presiding.  Mr. R. H. Parkinson attended  with a plan of a subdivision of  property belonging tn Mr. D. W.  Crowley, alongside the creek.  The plan gave rise to some discussion on the difficulties attending the subdivision of land along  the creek. It was felt advisable  to have some idea as to how the  rest of the land was to be subdivided before passing the present  plan.  The Mayor suggested that as  quite a number of subdivisions  were being made in that neighborhood, the council pay a visit of inspection. Almost every street and  lane seemed likelv to cross the  creek several times, and this would  mean an enormous expense to the  city for bridges. It was necessary  to have the matter adjusted before  allowing things to proceed any  further.  A letter was read by the mayor  which he had received from Mr.  J. A. Rennie of the Okanagan  Telephone Co. Mr. Rennie stated  that he was in the valley endeavoring to straighten out matters, and  would like to meet the council  Tuesday to talk things over.  A letter was read from Mr. R.  H. Parkinson, complaining of a  regulation made by the council  that blue prints were to be supplied to the council before a subdivision plan could be passed, and  pointing out that plans were not  usually blue-printed until they had  been passed. He also complained  of a charge of $2 for passing plans.  The city clerk explained that the  charge was made in accordance  >with the Land Act. The regulation respecting blue-prints was  made owing to the difficulty of  obtaining blue prints from the surveyors or owners, once a plan had  been passed.  It was decided in reply to Mr.  Parkinson who spoke on the matter, that the case could be met by  the clerk retaining one of the tracings until blue prints had been  furnished to the city.  The chief engineer reported on  the matter of Mr. Fuller's objection to the electric light charges.  He ascribed the trouble to the very  large lamps Mr. Fuller had been  using, The council decided not  to grant any rebate.  The following accounts were referred to tbe finance committee  for payment:  P Morrison, drain, Ellis & Water Sts. $ 4.34  August Clarke, do. do. - 4.34  Samuel Cleighton, do. do. - 3.00  Thos.

This was  the system actually in use but the  old by-law making the rates payable to the scavenger had never  been amended.  By-law 104 giving effect lo the  reductions on light and water rates  noticed last week was also read a  first time. The reduction in light  rates, it may be mentioned, is  really an increase in the discount  from 25 to 33 1-3 per cent.  Subdivisions of Black 35, map  202 and Block 40. Map 462, were  'approved.  Aid. Taylor raised the old question of the disreputable condition  of Chinatown. It was a disgrace to  the city to have the present dirty  old shacks fronting upon the park.  He asked if something could not  be done to prevent any more being built. The minimum of $1,500  fixed by the by-law as the cost of  the buildings in that area was not  enough to prevent shacks going  up. There was the serious matter  too of over-crowding which should  Council Meets  Telephone Co.  Company Presents Change of  Front when Head Officials  Arrive  ContintiaxI on p*f�� 8  A new face seems for the present to have been put upon telephone matters in the city by the  changed attitude of the Okanagan  Telephone Co., representatives of  which, in the persona of Mr.  Hankey, of Vernon, and the secretary, Mr. J. H. Rennie, of New  Westmin ter, met in consultation  last Tuesday with the city council  and several members of the Board  of Trade.  Mr. Hankey was the first speaker  and expressed his pleasure in having an opportunity to discuss the  unfortunate state of affairs which  had arisen in connection with the  taking over of the telephone system by his company. The first  intimation of any dissatisfaction  which he had had was when Aid.  Taylor drew his attention to it a  week ago. He had immediately  communicated with the head office  in New Westminster, and instituted  investigations.  Mr. Dobie. their Okanagan manager, had apparently made himself  exceedingly unpopular by ihe manner in which lie had endeavored  to force changes upon tlie subsciibers,  Tlie company, of course, had to acct-pl the  responsibility having foolishly given Mr.  Dobie-whom lie described as an excellent and experienced man in the construction and operation of tet*pl.one systems,  but entirely unsuitable to deal with the  pubtic-a perfectly free hand, never anticipating that he would take the course he  had done. I he company entirely disapproved of his action and were anxijus to  do what they could to remedy matters.  The action of at once raising the rates and  disconnecting 100. 'phones for declining to  sign a year's contract, Mr. Hankey said,  was perfectly monstrous. He did not biame  the council for objecting. He would himself have felt very strongly against the  company.  Ihe plan'of the company was to proceed as quickly as possible to remodel the  system on modern lines and to give a  service equal to that in the large cities.  Until this was done the old rates would  be charged. It was certainly not the  company's wish to raise the rates until the  installation of a vastly improved system  warranted it.  Mr. Rennie, the secretary, corroborated  Mr. Hankey in the assertion that their  district manager had acted without the  authority of the company in interfering  with the rate and cutting off 'phones.  They had no intention of asking higher  rates while the people were getting merely  the old service.  I  Aid. Sutherland ������ mentioned' that Mr.  Dobie had hinted that the raise in, rates  was only the first of a series and that the  subscribers would very soon get another  jolt.  Mr. F. S. Coates suggested that Mr.  Dobie might have been working under the  impression that he had. the authority of  the company. Such lines of action were  not unknown with other telephone companies and he nad seen similar proceedings before. He noted that it was the  intention of the company to raise the rates  as soon as their improvements had been  made. The subscribers were not advised  as to what the increase might be, and  without some indication of what the,  amount er time of the raise there was no  particular satisfaction to the people here.  Without some contract between the company and the city, in which the people's  interests would be safeguarded, they  would be no better off.  Questioned respecting the probable rates  Mr. Hankey said that in B.C. and most  other countries there was a standard of  rates for a certain class of service. Telephone rates did not vary very-much except  where just installed or on amateur lines.  Then the charges might be very moderate  but as soon as a system was put on ���  thoroughly modern basis, it was impossible  to continue such low rates, and the regu.  lar standard charges as passed by government had to be made. Telephones were  a public utility, and the government exercised a reasonable control over them.  They themselves were anxious to meet the  people in every possible way. It was  unwise for any company to attempt to go  against the public interest. If they could  not do business on perfectly fair and square  lines he personally wanted nothing to do  with it.  Mayor Jones thought the charter given  to the Okanagan Telephone Co, seemed to  be a pretty free and liberal one as regards  municipalities, and the citjf ought to have  some kind of gn a ran tee for the future. He  suggested that the council go into committee to consult with Mr. Hankey and  Mr. Rennie on the matter.  Aid. Sutherland said the company  seemed to have verv large powers under  their charter, instancing their power to cut  down shade trees. Some unwise employe  of the company might do considerable  damage in that way, and the city would  have no redress.  Mr Hankey said the telephone wat a  public utility and such a clause was inserted to prevent undue restrictions from people who might refuse what the board considered absolutely essential. But it was  certainly not the intention of the company  to do damage against the wish of the fea-  ple.  Mr. M. Hereron spoke on behalf of the  country subscribers. He said the stand of  the  country was for a new  company.    It  Kelowna will be Important  Railway Jerminus  Government's New Railway Policy Means much to District-  Canadian Northern Start Construction at Once ���  Expected visit from Sir. Wm. Mackenzie.  1 lie long-expected and eagerly-  looked-for railway policy of 'the  provincial government, brought before the attention of the legislature  by Premier McBride last week-end,  has an especial interest for Kelowna  and the Okanagan generally. The  bold and masterly programme of  railway development outlined in  ihe bills presented to the House  has been received with the greatest  enthusiasm throughout the province, but nowhere more so than  here in Kelowna, where the news  that the Canadian Northern were  to enter the valley by a line'from  Kamloops to Armstrong, and south  through Vernon to Kelowna. making this their terminus, has been  almost the one topic of conversation for Irn past few days.  What the advent of this road,  added to that which is already  assured ��� the extension of the  C.P.R. from Vernon to Kelowna���  will mean for the district, only  th >se who are familiar with the  vast possibilities which are only  awaiting transportation facilities  to enter upon a new era of development, will realize.  " If there his been prosperity in  these places in the days gone by."  said the Premier in his speech, " 1  ould like to undertake to say that  th.it prosperity will De greatly  multiplied in the near future, wheh  the Canadian Northern Is in operation and in touch with the entire  community. That   the  Okanagan is good we know. From  the remarkable wealth' of the district we may estimate the ureal  future that is now before it. Even  with the one line of transportation,  the Shuswap and Okanagan, we  have witnessed in the last fifteen  or sixteen years developments that  constitute a reenrd, and when we  consider that fact what may we  not expect, what may we not have  the right to claim as corning to this  part of British Columbia presently  when the Canadian Northern system is extended in that direction ?"  Work on the line we are assured  will start almost immediately the  bills" for granting assistance have  become law, and the promise is  given that trains will be running  out of Kelowna inside of eighteen  months. ;,"  .  Mr. A. E. Ashcroft, C.E.r and  party, have already located five  miles of the proposed line. A  start was made at Vernon and the  engineers are nowi working south  down the east side of Okanagan  Lake.  Sir William Mackenzie, the president of the Canadian Northern  Co., ia expected in Kelowna during  the next few weeks for the purpose  pf locating terminals.  Already the effect upon real  estate business has been " most  marked, and prospective investors  are coming in from all parts in anticipation of a boom in prices.

The lantern lecture on Saturday  night waa well attended although  the conditions under .which the  lecturer labored were not of the  best. The views shown were good  and greatly errj tyed.  At the school meeting last Tuesday the question of a new site was  d scussed ; Mr. Dalgleish as chairman, and J. Woolsey, secretary. A  representative company were present and after a preliminary skirmish the Reilly lot was proposed,  then an amendment advocating the  purchase of the Hartley properly,  which resulted on being submitted  to the vote in both proposals being  rejected. Mr. Elmer Woolsey then  propos-d, seconded by Mr. V.  Dilworth, that the Porter lot be  purchased for $2,300. Several  residents spoke for and against,  but the vile result -d 32 in favor,  2 against lis now up to the trustees  lo gel busy and cotnp'ete the deal  so thai the new srhool may be  started without any more delay.

The council afterwards went into committee, and in conversation Mr. Hankey  said the company would be quite willing  to enter into an agreement with the council. He also promised that the old rates  would be returned to, and anyone who  had paid the higher rate would be credited with the difference.

Kelowna Customs  Office to  Handle all Business from  Landing South  A communication has been received this week from the chief  of the Customs Department to the  effect that in future all customs  parcels for all lake points and south  to the boundary are to be handled  from Kelowna. This, in view of  the rapidly increacing business in  the valley, is an important matter,  and will go a long way towards  securing for Kelowna a .new Post  Office building.  Resignation of Rev. A. W. K.  Herdman  On Sunday morning last the Rev.  A. W. K. Herdman read from the  pulpit of Knox church a citation  from Kamloops presbytery regarding his resignation which had been  previously laid before that court.  Mr. Bayer who preached in the  evening spoke sympathetically of  the relations which had existed between Mr. Herdman and the congregation for over six years, and  added that whilst the resignation  would come as a surprise to some,  it would not to those who knew  the trend of events during the last  six months in connection with the  proposed disjunction of Benvoulin  Irom Knox church of Kelowna.  Glenraore's First Fire  By a stroke of particulaily hard  luck, one of G'enmore's new settlers, Mr. C. D. Tuckey, had the  misfortune to have his house, wliich  he had practically only just completed, entirely destroyed by fire  last Tuesday evening.  Soon after supper Mr. and Mrs.  Tuckey had started out to visit ihe  Dawsons who are living in Mr.  MacLeay's house on the hill ou  the opposite side of the road. They  had just reached their destination  when happening to look; back-, they  noticed the rear part ol their house  was on fire. Mr. Tuckey biu\ Mr.  Dawson at once hurried down  again, and in ide what effort thry  could to save some of the furniture.  The flaint s spread so rapidly, how-  ev r, and the heat became so intense that only a few things nearest the door could be got out, and  most of what wns earned out war,  in the hum , led i, o urnr tl e Inland afterwards binnt. Their w..s  no help at hand at the lime, and  even if there had been It ��ould  have availed little, aa there was no  water to be had.  The flames leaping high in the  air and showing up clearly against  the sky attracted attention in town,  and the alarm was turned in lo  the power house. The biigade,  however, did not make the journey  believing as probably as many did  that the fire waa caused by some-  one burning brush.  Mr. Tuckey is a heavj' loser, his  property only being partially insured.  The man Milligan who wai responsible for. the trouble in Chinatown last week has been fined $40  and costs.  Miss Lillian McMillan won the  prize in the dot-guessing contest  at " Dreamland " last Saturday  afternoon.  Mr. A. E. Boyer has disposed of  ten acres on the north side, near  Manhattan beach, to Mr. F. R. E.  DeHart.  The Benvoulin Literary Club  held its final meeting Wednesday  evening at the home of Mr. Thos.  Renwick in the form of a social.  Contests and games, and a mock  trial,carried out with due solemnity  made up the evening's amusement  which was much enjoyed by all  present.  The interest in Calder's sale  shows no signs of abating, judging  from the crowds of bargain hunters who keep the clerks busy eveiy  day. Some remarkable records  have been made in the speed wilh  which some lines of goods have  disappeared as soon as exhibited.  Although the staff have been con-  aiderably added lo, and every arrangement made for quick serving  of customers, some waiting has  been unavoidable, and Mr. Calder  asks the indulgence of the public.

Advertising   atet upun application,  K��lnwiia is very much in thr  Public eye at tlie present momenti  The now definite assurance that  two important railways, ihe Can*  adian Northern and the C. P, R.  will in the very near future make  this their terminus,   has   not   011.3  aroused the keenest interest and  sense of gratification in the city and  district, but it is already having the  natural effect of.directing the attention of outside investors to the  gi*f*at possibilites and resources  which have hitherto remained comparatively locked up from lack ol  efficient transportation And this  is but the beginning 1 Kelowna is  entering upon a new era of progress and development which il is  impossible to foreshadow. The  many thousands of acres of f rtile  land, only a small portion of which  has yet !>������< 11 l<iu bed, and which  will eventually became tributary to  tlie city, u its best guarantee of a  splendid future.  1ST he prospect of railway competition too, with its promise of  "better terms" in the matter of  latrs and shipping facilities, is one  which will be viewed with the  most pleasant anticipation by those  who have been under the handicap  of the present system.  Good news is plentiful this week  and those who are concerned with  the growing problem of the education of the rising generation of  Kelowna, will bail with much satisfaction the ' substantial grant of  $35,000 which has been made by  the government toward school extension. This will make considerably lighter the task of providing  for the rapid increase of scholais  which is taking place.  But in tbe midst of all our rejoicing over this good news, there aie  two disappointments which will be  keenly felt. Ihe first is that there  is to be no appropriation made  this year, as was fully expected, for  the erection of the much needed  new courthouse. 1 hat is to say,  the disreputable, inconvenient and  inadequate pair of shacks which at  present do duty as courthouse and  gaol are still to remain an eyesore  to our main street. Ihe position  taken by the government that Kel-  owna's growth will be 20 rapid that  a much larger building than could  be erected now will be needed  three years hence, is plausible and  flattering, but not entirely convincing. The structures are utterly inadequate now so that after a  growth of one year or two years it  will be impossible to tolerate them  at all.

'I'he Editor doeB not nee-  ���marllt| endorse opinions Riven below  The Rutland School  The oilier disappointment is  that there is to be no redistribution.  1 hat is to say that the Okanagan is  to have no recognition of its urgent  and just claims for better representation n the legislature. This is  1 -.ill\ (he most unkindest cut of all.  Not only have we been led to believe time after time that so soon  AS the census made clear the fact  lhat the growth of population had  warranted it, a division of the constituency would take place, but the  deputation consisting of delegates  fiom alt over ihe valley which went  to Victoria last week to urge our  claims, was actually delayed several weeks, possiblv until too late  tQ be effective, in the belief that  justice would be done before the  forthcoming election was announced, It has not, however, and not  all the earnest representations of  the delegation were sufficient to  extract any satisfaction from the  Hovernment on this vital matter.  The result is that Kelowna and the  lower Okanagan must continue tu  be ridiculously under represented.  Teddy Roosevelt has decided  to run as a candidate in the next  presidential campaign.  The. coal strike in Great Britain  which will involve some 800,000  miners, commenced Tuesday.  It' is rumored that Sir Wilfrid  Laurier will retire from active politics at the end of the present  session.

Dear Sir: Will you kindly allow me to state a few farts in regard to the much discussed question ot the Rutland 81 hool site.  It is most unfortunate that the district should have again been divided as the outcome of the meeting  held ruesday last, After thr question bad been thoroughly threshed  OUt,a fairly unanimous decision was  fortunately secured at the previous  meeting, and a motion, which secured the vote of practically every*  >ne present, and without one dis-  sentient, was put through, authorising ihe trusters to " purchase a  school site about one-half mile  north of the present site." I liis  would have placed the school a  quartet of a mile north of the centre line of the district.  Now the trustees, according to  that motion, located two available  sites, just about on (he centre line,  both good s'ites from a school standpoint, raiher high in price, but no  one expects to pick out a small  piece of land right in the centre of  the district and get il cheap. What  did the north enders do, but mass  up in full force at the meeting called to select one of the two lots  named and turn down both propositions, and carry through a vote  to purchase a site if of a mile north  of the present site, going back on  the agreement which had been secured with so much trouble.  Now in public meeting, aa is  usually the case, some points are  unduly made prominent, and others  equally important are discreetly  kept in the back ground. Wha*  the people at the south end are all  iinanimouf upon is that the school  should be placed in the centre of  the district, and so be fair to all  concerned. 1 hat this would be  the best and fairest all round the  following figures should conv'nee  the most prejudiced. 1 here are  I 3 children attending school who  come from the north end, and  would benefited by putting the  school where now proposed ; there  are twelve children coming fiom  the south end who would be placed  at a disadvantage, and there are  twenty-three living right in the  centre, mostly on the ctntie line.  This is sufficient, I think, to satisfy  any fair minded person as to  where the school should be placed.  In regard to the future, there are  as many arguments for the south  as for the north. I here is quite as  u.uchi if not more available vacant  land at the south end as to the  north. Much of the land north is  slough and heavy clay, wh'ch prob  ably never will be occupied. There  are as many children approaching  school age at both ends of the  district, and the incoming settlers  are being fairly well distributed.  There were 53 present at I lie  meeting Tuesday, and notwithstanding the fact the north endeis  had rounded up every voter available, only 32 voted for ihe site now  proposed. No attempt had been  made by the people of the souih  end to puck the meeting, and many  of the ratepayers of (he south who  having nri children of school age  arc taking 110 interest in the matter, consequently the vole taken  the other evening does not by any  means represent even a nu-j ��rity  of the district.  1, myseli am residing pretty near  ihe centre line, and would naturally  like to see the school kept bb near  the centre of the district as possible, but if I have misiepresented  anything in the above few statements I would be pleased to be  shown wherein I have Irangressed.  "FAIR AND SQUARE."  I    BATTLING WITH THE CLOUDS  'Kankind Has Been Trying to Fight  the   Threa'enlhg   Hall-Storm  From Time Immemorial.  From time Immemorial mankind  tins endeavored to find some phyBlc&l  means of preventing hailstorms. In  antiquity the custom of hurllni  lavelins and other missile* against  clouds that threatened a discharge of  hail was widespread. Iu the middle  ages the aid of the sorcerer who  claimed the power of Influencing the  weather ��� was Invoked tu the same  end. Bells, sIbo, were believed to be  efficacious lu averting hailstorms,  Ba,rly in the nineteenth century  metal-tipped poles were set up in  great numbers In many parts of  Europe, In the belief thai they would  draw off the free electricity of the  sir, which was assumed to be the  chief cause of hailstorms. About 1896  the custom of "hall-shooting" wus introduced in Europe, especially In  vine-growing districts, and soon be-  eame lmmensoly popular, This connoted In bombarding the clouds with  various speclul forms uf cannon. In  the year 1H0U five hundred of these  cannon were in use in France and  Spain, 2,000 in Auslrln-HiiuRary, and  10,000 In Italy. This custom still  nourishes. It is, however, open to  Ihe fatal objection that, even should  It prove efficacious, the expense entailed In systematic protection by this  method Is lu excess of the benefits to  be obtained.  WHKItK THEORIES Nt'KFER  The only Justification America has  yet had cumes direct from the self-  satisfaction of the Individual American. Flls satisfaction, however, Is  both unmistakable and voluble, says  a writer critic. Me Is content, though  the competition becomes dully more  severe and evident. He is beginning  to realise now that many are handicapped at the very outset, that the  struggle is prolonged by the stronger  for the sheer Joy of conquest, und  even thut u good third of the energy  expended is consumed in piling up  success on tlie top of victory. Yet  a cheerfu'l acceptance uf the situation  is the price or his Individuality, his  Optimism, und his chance of winning  out, und he pays li ungrudgingly  There Is a greater measure of cou-  tem and less ur a sense of environmental Injustlre In America than anywhere e'ra In the world today. And  the principles of conduct and social  relationships, though elemental, ure  like Hie rules nr n game, there Is an  Immediate appeal to public censure  or approval, and little dlscrepunsy  botween   theory  und   practice.  Nairn-ally our theories suffer when  compared with idealistic and more  divorced co'les. Where every man is  mipposed to consider his own in-  lerefts, no social blame Is Imputed,  anil no one, except for Initial hnndl-  cnim, has an excuse. That Is not. on  the whole, an unenviable state of uf-  fa'rs; the American temperament  only approximates It. As an instinctive theory, this Is what It believes In.  Yd with every man Iheo-  retlcally for himself, public spiriied-  neas prevails to a marked mid unusual degree. For every man drives  a frank bargain with Ihe community;  there Is a competitive and open  market for altruistic wares. Consider  fur ft moment thut phenomenon of our  civilisation, the millionaire philanthropist. Is he an enigma, this person who hiis seemed lo change  character and tactics under our very  eyes? By no mcmis; If Americans  worship money, Ihey worship it ft*  power, as cornered energy and not  In tu Intrinsic and mlsorly way.  The Rev. Robt. Hughes ol Krrris-  dalr, was a visitot in town lust  week. Mr. Hughes, It will be remembered, conducted a parly to  to the Old Country for the Coronation, and is organizing a similar  excursion for the coming summer.  He gave an Interesting limelight  lecture on the coronation tour, in  the Methodist church, Friday evening and again at Rutland Saturday.  He also occupied the pulpit at the  Methodist church Sunday. Mr.  Hughes owns several acres of fruit  land at Rutland.

Light from Sugar i  This phenomenon, tha cauBe of  wliich has not yet been satisfactorily  explained, may be observed when  discs of loaf sugar,are mounted on  a lathe uud rapidly rotated while a  hammer plays lightly against them.  An almost continuous radiation of  light may be thus produced from the  sugar. It has been shown that tha  light does not arise from heating of  the sugar, and It Is believed to be  caused by some change taking place  In the Bugar crystals, The act of  crystalllsntlon Is known to be some  times accompanied by tiu.ihes of  light. The practical bearing rf these  experiments Is on the question of th  possibility of obtnlnlni, artificial light  l.y methods as yet untried.  Sifllllg   Ollt   tile    llanclllis  The Chinese rebels, who ure the  'Original" Chinese, hnve resorted to  an ancient lsraelltlsh trick to sift  cut the real Chinese from the doomed  Mane hus.

Mpruee fur British  Idmlralty  The British Admiralty has recently placed an order for 2uu,00o feet of  while spruce to be used In the manufacture uf oars for the rowboats of  warships. It is perhaps not generally  known ihnt the superior quality of  Ihe while spruce grown lu the Queen  Charlotte Islands, off the coast of  British Columbia, wus discovered  years ago by llrltlsh nuvul officers  or the North Pacific station. The  kind of timber was found lo be ideally  adapted for making oars, and it is  now used exclusively for thai purppse  by Ills Majesty's vessels throughout  the world.

Thursday, Feb. 29  I  LAND OF REVOLUTIONS  ^OOOOOOOCXXIOOCOOOOOOOOCXXIi.  )  Two   Communities,    Whose    Praises  Were Sung by Longfellow nnd  Tolstoy, Who Are Settled  Happily In Canada.  To-Pbt.  The years 1606 and 1632 saw two  sonslderable migrations from Nor-  msndy and Hrlttany to the peninsula  since christened Nova Scotia, which  for a long time subsequently formed  a part ef New France. These people  were not fugitives of any description,  neither the law requiring Ihem nor  persecution driving them. They formed a colony under their own Government's rule. They were farmers, with a  desire to obtain freehold property and  a life of peace and quietness. Their  name resulted from the description  of tho Indians around, who designated  any cultivated place as Kady. The.io  people were comparatively few In  number, for about a century after  emigration their total population was  computed at about two thousand.  Things went fairly well at first, for  they made excellent friends o( the  Indians iu the vicinity, the Mlomaos  by name. Later, however, came the  Bubjugatlun of the French in Canada  by the English, und the letter's complete possession. Then It became ne-  cesflary for these simple folks to take  full measures and precautions for  self-maintenance: as It r��rned out  they were unmo ested : i lurry years,  rip English settlement being formed  In Acadia during that time. Eventually, however, the Inevitable took place:  Uie English settle! at last, nnd founded the town of Halifax, end the disaffected Acadians had to undergo the  bitter experience of deportation.  The Doukhobors  To turn our thoughts In another  direction, we find the Doukhobors.  These strange people differ considerably from the Acaillans, the first nnd  foremost reason being tli.it they are  now u scattered rare, pi rts of which  can be found in various Canadian  Slates. Again, the'r nationality Is  different, for Ihey nre t!'" descendants  of RUBSlan emigrants of the peasant  (las?; and lastly, the cause of their  emigration was In total contrast to  that of the Acadians. In the relen  ot Catherine II. the Doukljobors, who  are a religious sect entirely opposed  to militarism, nnd in favour of a  doctrine of non-re [stance, could still  not be induced to eonrcrm with the  conscription laws of their country,  the which had been the case fur a  considerable period previously; the  ruler lu question, however, considered persecution i n unwise procedure,  so that any Bufferings tbe Doukhobors underwent weri i nruly private.  After the net e s'on of Paul the plan  was changed, and in I7H9 persecution  with the roenlrance of the State commenced. Alexander I reverted to the  policy of Catherine nnd permitted the  sect to form a Bettlomenl of their  own nt "Milky Water;" near the Sea  of Azof. Thus the Poukhobors became nn Industrial and economic community, ns well ns merely religious.  Unfortunately they failed to give  complete satisfaction to the Government, and were transported to the  Caucasus. Still, owing to their anti-  militarist attitude, persecution followed them. After ths a small detachment emigrated to Cyprus, whilst  lu 18DJ permission to leave Russia  for Canada was granted by the Government with so::iewhat stringent  conditions.  Ilore  Rebellions  Have  Taken  Pluce   8  IX THE SCIEHTIFIC WORLD. X  In China than In any other �� Q  Country ou Record. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCXIO  MIGRATION OF BIBBS  One of the Great Marvels of Nature  There are probably more revolts  rebellions and revolutions recorded lu  the annals of China than can be resurrected from the histories of all the  nations of the west. This Is partly  because Chinese anuals of an authentic character go back much further than western annals and partly  because the Chinese, inoffensive and  docile though they seem, are predisposed  to  insurrection.  The tendency has persisted since  the first of the eighteen emperors  3f the Hia dynasty mounted his  throne away back In the dim mists  3f antlflulty when the early Pharaohs  were building their temples by the  N'tle and erecting their pyramids in  the desert.  The Hia dynasty issued from 2205  lo 1706 B.C., when it was overturned  by the Shang, or Yin, dynasty, an  Bqusily active race, which ruled until  1122 years before the Christian era.  Disaster overtook the Shang Emperors at last, from n rising of the  people under the banners of Cbou,  although Rome had not been built  and the Greeks were still scattered  tribes when they gave way to the  princes of the Chuu line. . A protracted  period of unrest followed.  In many respects the greatest of all  the Chinese Emperors, Kubla Khan  began his reign in 1257, and held the  throne until his death in 1294. In  these years the nation was more Illustrious and powerful than ever be-  lure. A succession of Mongol emperors followed Kublu Khan, principally remembered for their sanction  of the introduction of Christianity.  In 1308 the Ming dynasty was proclaimed upon the ashes of the political  structure built up by the warlike  Mongols, und it ruled successfully  until the Manchus of the North, the  fierce, well-built hill Chinese, swept  down upon Peking and Installed their  own princes In 1661,  I lie Manchus have never beeu  numerous, und although they have  managed to keep their saddles by dint  of cowing the peoples under them,  they hnve been unable to preserve  absolute order and tranquillity. One  of the first steps they took to impress their sovereignty upon the  country was the publication of an  edict compelling the people to adopt  the pig-tall. Tne Manchus were  horsemen, and the pig-tail was prescribed as a national Institution because, the Manchus contemptuously  said, the Chinese were of the same  status as their horses.  Rebellion after rebellion marked  the troubled reigns of the Mancku  Emperors, and lu most eases the gertn  of revolt was first In evidence in one  or other of the three provinces that  are causing trouble to-day, Szhe  Chuen, Hu-peh, and Hu-nan have always been centres of discord.  THE PROGRESS>"  MM 111 KOREA  Jnptineso lluvp Vnle Ureal Improvements In New Territory  Itcicuilj Acquired.  Since the Japanese took over tho  control of Korea they have opened  there 188 primary schools; 83 sericulture training schools; 21 training  schools for weaving; 13 sericultural  workshops; 8 training schools for the  manufacture of pacer 3 fishery training schools; 37 seeding nurseries; 4  mulberry farms; K common Industrial  workships; 7 Industrial apprentice  schools; anil 4 Industrial training  houses. State aid lias also been given  to 217 other schools, established by  public or private enterprise. Five  hundred miles of common roads have  been completed, and fourteen hundred  miles more, to cost $6,000,000, are under construction. Telegraph offices  have been opened at twenty additional  places; Un more telephone exchanges  have been established; and eight hundred miles of new telephone line will  shortly be udded to the loug-dlstanco  Bystein. The postal service has been  greatly Improved, and the routes now  covered by a dally mall service  amount in the aggregate to more than  a thousand miles. Harbor improvements, to cost nioro than $4,000,000,  are under way at Chemulpo, Chin-  nampo, and Kusan, and when they  are completed steamers of the largest  size will be able to receive and discharge cargo without lighterage at  any of these ports. A free public  hoBpltal hus been erected In every  province of Korea, and In tho first  five months of the present year the  number of patients treated In theBe  hospitals was eighty-nine  thousand.

Hut the most remarkable instrument  In the world Is that known as the  "Napoleon plono." it was built lu  18(18 by the famous nouse of Ernrd  to the order of the Emperor. Its  keys are of mother-o'-penrl and  tortoisesliell, the case Is of rosewood,  and there arc five pedals, working  drum, cymbal und triangle attachments. It wus a present given by  Napoleon to Josephine, and mauy  years later the Empress Eugenie took  great delight In playing upon It. When  tile Tullerlos were sucked the piano  was stolen; It was e-.entually recovered and put up to aucLlon, when It  wus bought by a representative of Uie  firm who originally built the Instrument.  NenouNUcs* In Children  Nervousness taken many forms, and  parents should be on the look-out for  any signs of It iu a growing boy or  girl. For It usually Indicates that  something Is wrong ��� the child's  work or play, or companions, or food,  or general health. To trace It to IU  real source sometimes needs both  great (act nnd much firmness on the  mother's part, bit; no truuble must be  spared to remove the cause, as excessive nervousness In childhood may,  later on, reappear In a very serious  form.  Scolding Is, of course, the wonst  possible treatment for nervousness of  any kind, though excessive sympathy  Is almost us bad. The child should  be made to understand Unit his fears  and shyness arc the results of Ill-  health, and must be conquered by  will-power duly accomplished by  nourishing diet, p'lenly of Blcop, and  plenty of enjoyed exercise out-of-  doors.  One of the greatest marvels In connection with the changing seasons is  found in the migration of birds which  spend the winter season In South America and the nesting season In the  Arctic circle. Different species of  birds follow different routes of travel.  The golden plover, which nests along  the Arctic coast of North America, begins its trip southward by a short  run to the Labrador coast. There it  fattens for several weeks on abundant native fruits and then files across  the Qulf of St. Lawrence to Nova Scotia. From this point the plover usually takes a straight course of 2,400  miles, wltbout pause or rest, along  the east side of the Atlantic ocean to  South America. If tempests arise the  birds may take temporary shelter ou  the New England const, or may rest  for a few days in the Bermudas, or at  the lesser Antilles, 600 miles from  the mainland of South America. These  are, however, merely emergency stop-  overs to be resorted to only in the  case of storms. The plover, after  wintering In Argentine finds Its way  back to the Arctic by an entirely different route. On Its return Journey it  travels across the northwest of South  America and the Qulf of Mexico to  the coast of Louisiana. Thence it  moves up the Mississippi Valley and  by early June Is again In the nesting  place on the Arctic coast. Most of  the other feathered migrants in their  Journeys north and south take a land  route all the way save across the  comparatively narrow Gulf of Mexico.  Thousands of birds perish from tbe  storms during the Journey, while others kill themselves by dashing against  lighthouses. A red light or a rapidly flashing one will repel the birds,  but a steady white light, piercing  storm and fog, proveB irreslBtlble.  From whatever direction blrdB approach such u light they turn to  windward, and then, flying against the  wind, Beek the object of their infatuation. The larger part do not strike  with sufficient force to Injure themselves, but, like great moths, they  flutter In and out of tho light's rays,  und finally settle on the platform or  framework to await the abatement  of the storm or the coming of sufficient daylight to enable them once  fliore to take their direction.  Speeding  up  tbe  Telegraph  Service  Anything that short-cuts communication quickens business The telegraph companies have recently Introduced two speed-giving Improvements.  Belvldere Brooks, the new general  manager of the Western Union Telegraph Company, recently completed  arrangements with the telephone companies whereby meBages may be  dictated over u telephone to the nearest telgraph office. The telegrums are  charged up on the monthly telephone  bills and collected by the telephone  companyi or If one is uBlng a public  station, the cost of the message Is  added to the fee for toll.  The new "lettergram" transmits  fifty words at the old ten-word rate.  The distinction from the telegram Is  that lettergrams are transmitted only  at night and are delivered In the  morning by telephone, by messenger  or by mall. Since this Innovation, the  companies have had to Increase their  operators In every large city and lettergrams hid fair to supplant to some  extent, the use of private codes, so  reducing the liability to misinterpreted Information or Instructions.  Tbe  Earth's  Core.  At a meeting of the Serological  Association at The Hague, Prof.  Welchert uascrtod that his studies of  the vurrylng velocity of earthquake  tremors passing through the Interior  of the globe led lo the conclusion  that Uie earth consists of a central  core of Iron or .steel about 6,680 miles  In diameter surrounded with a Btony  shell B80 miles In thickness.  Between the outer Bolld rind and  the Inner layer of rock covering the  metallic core he thinks there is a layer of liquid or plastic material lying  a little less than twenty mllea below  the surface of the earth.  Ven York to Paris by Aeroplane  Recent successful flights by aeroplane from Paris to Madrid, and rrom  Paris to Rome, have led the Springfield Republican to suggest that the  next venture In this direction mav he  a flight from New York to Paris by  way of Retiring Straits ami Siberia.  If such a run Is undertaken It will  probably be by relays of aeroplanes  wilh one covering the first stage In  the Journey, a second the next, anil so  on. It is pointed out that In tbe old  days of the "pony express" across tbe  great plains of the United States, before the building of railroads, soma  remarkable records were made bv relays of riders, but that a team >r aviators could do better still.

The Associated Boards of Trade  of the Okanagan met last Wednes  day in Penticton.  The delegatee present from the  various towns were ae follows :���  Vernon : W. R. Megaw H. P. Lee.  Armstrong: J. Young, Ceo. Murray.  Summerland : C. II. Cordy, A. L.  I Moreland.  Kelowna:  R. B. Kerr, S. T. Elliott,  M. Hereron,  Penticton : E. Foley-Bennett, E. W.  Mutch, J. Power.  At 10.30 a.m. the meeting was  called to order by Mr. E. Foley-  Bennett, who acted ae chairman  in the absence of the president,  Mr. G. A. Hendereon.  The minutes of the last meeting  were read also the financial statement, showing receipts of $125  and expenditures of $23.85, the  balance in hand being $269.98.  The officers for thf ensuing year  were then elected ae follower-  President���E. Foley-Bennett.  Sec.-Treas.���Edward Cannell.  The vice-presidents were the  presidents of the various boards  affiliated.  Mr. Foley-Bennett thanked the  delegates for electing him presi  dent and a hearty vole of thanks  was also given to G. A Henderson,  retiring president, and to P. Dick  son, retiring secretary, for (heir  services.  A large number of resolutions  were discussed,the following being  passed:���  1. Pointing out to the government that  if a .tretch uf 30 mile, of road between  Penticton and ( armi were constructed, a  continuous road would he formed between  Keremeos and Midway, which could be  used by them in proposed trans-provincial  highway.  2. Requesting the Minister of Public  Works at Ottawa to have the telegraph  system extended to Penticton as early as  possible.  3. Asking the Provincial Government to  remove the defects and delava of the Land  Registry Office nnd also to establish an  office in the Okanagan.  4. Asking for the construction of the  road between Penticton and Carmi.  5. Favoring a Central Apple Show for  the Okanagan Valley, to be moved from  year to year, but strongly recommending  that all judges be chosen from outside the  Valley. At the same time the meeting  was strongly opposed to any diminution of  government grants to the local fairs.  6. Urging upon the Provincial Govern,  ment the necessity of advancing money by  way of toan, extending over a number of  years, repayable by annual instalments of  principal and interest on similar lines to the  system in vogue in New Zealand under  tha title i " Advances to Settlers Act."  The president spoke in favor of  this motion saying he wns well  acquainted with the working of the  New Zealand Act. It was suggested that the preeident send a letter  explaining the working of the Act,  attaching same to the petition to  the government. Thie he promieed  to do.  Mr. R. B. Kerr moved the next  resolution, regarding redistribution  which wae carried:  7. " Whereas the Okanagan District is  enormously under-represented in the Provincial Legislature, while other districts  are absurdly over-represented, for instance,  the Boundary mining district has two  members with a very small population:  and whereas great injury is done to tha  Okanagan by lack of representation;  therefore be it resolved that the Associated  Boards of Trade of the Okanagan request  the Provincial Government to take steps to  sub-divida tha Okanagan District into three  constituencies, and give each a memoer."  Mr. Kerr referred to the objections made to two-member constituencies, and retraced the history  of representation in B. C. in the  early days, when strenuous objections were raieed to double representation. Single member constituencies, in hie eetimation, had  more influence. On that principal  the whole of the province might aa  well be thrown into one constituency. If the Okanagan got a second repreeentative, other divisions  would require the same thing. He  strongly objected to go back to the  principle of dual representation.  Mr. Elliott seconded and strongly objected to return to the old  system.  Mr. E. Foley-Bennet referred to  the recent discussion in the Penticton Board of Trade. Hon. Price  Ellison was coneidered to be an  overworked man, and that waa the  reaeon why they wiahed to give  him assistance.  Mr. Power said their'e was the  worst represented district in the  whole of B. C, and he wae pleaeed  to hear the preeident put it in such  a concise way. When it was found  there would be no re-distribution  the euggestion was coneidered to  be the beet way out of the difficulty.  8. Reking to delays in the issuing of  Crown gr.uta.  9. Asking the government  to conduct a  publicity t-ampaiim in the fruit districts of  Oreuan, Washing-ton, Idaho and California.  10. I'lgiuu the C.P.R. to change tha  name of Sicamou. to Okanagan Junction.  11. Recommending the {strict enforcement of the duty on consigned goods.  12. Tliat'a freight rate commissioner ba  appointed by the several Boarda of Trade  in the Okanagan to on-'eavour to have the  present high ratss lowered.  13. That a booklet be issued by the  Associated Boarda advertising the whole  Okanagan. j  M. That tha Associated Boards send an  advertising car of fruit through the north..  west, tha middle states, and Ontario, ask- '  ing tha provincial ^government to take j  charge of and bear the expense. I  A resolution wae also passed on  the motion of Mr. R. B. Krrr  con-'  demning the postponement of the !  Associated Boards' meeting. '  The place of meeting for the  next wear, it waa decided, should  be Vernon.     \ |  The di legates were entertained  in the evening to a splendid banquet which was attended by many  of the leading Penticton citizens.

He believed that  one street tunning into Abbott St.  wm closed by a building', and this  should be seen to at once.  Aid. Taylor said he understood  tli.it inati)' of the Chinks were  offering (heir places for sale, but  were placing such extraordinary  figures upon dtetn that no one  wmild buy. They could n/.t get  at them through assessment, as by  ��� toweling theii houses full c,f men  lliey could afford to pay any higher  taxes.  A resolution was passed that the  health officer be asked to report  upon the condition of Chinatown  111 the next meeting.  [lie attention of the Board of  V. orks was drawn to several lanes  wliich had been illegally dosed;  aid it was decided to see that  tl.^se were opened up at once.  One lane mentioned r.in between  I i quime's store and the office of  ,1V:.'sirs. Hewelson and Mantle, and  another behind Blackwood's livery  barn from Pendozi to Water Street  I liese, it was pointed out, were In  fli'e most congested parts of the  i"-y, nnd in case of fire might be a  great hindrance lo the brigade.  Aid. Copeland mentioned that  five tenders had been received fur  the city's in pi 'ment shed.  Ihese showed a rather extraordinary difference of amount,  ranging from $595 to $985.      The  tVrjder of Mr. I. A. Bigger for $595,  bring the lowest, was accepted.  Mayor   Jones    had    many    important!  announcements  to  make  1 respecting his trip to Victoria last  week. T he railway policy, he said,  brought down by Premier MchVide  [contained    many   matters  of   the  liiyhist   moment tq |he  Okanagan,  Und    to   Kelowna    iu    particular.  Kelowna would very soon be thr'  terminus of two railways, and this  would mean  a  great deal for the  i ity.    T he Premier hail spoken in  the   highest   terms  of  the district  aid   of   its   future, and   had   also  j mentioned   in   an   interview   that  ' Kelowna   might   expect   within a  ; month  oi   six weeks  a visit   from  ���Sir William McKenzie, ihe head of  tlie Canadian Northern system, for  the purpose of locating terminals  and stations for the line.     He had  expressed the hope that  the city  would extend its best courtesies to  a man of Sir William's calibre, and  not hold him up  too much in the  matter  of   prices.    I le had  given  ihe assurance that trains would be  running  out  of   Kelowna   within  e ghteen months time.  Messrs. Thos. Lawson and F.  Buckland, said the mayor, had  accompanied him to Victoria, and  they had been successful in getting  a grant of $35,000 towards the  building of a new school which  ' would soon be needed for the  city.  ihe appropriation of roads in  the Okanagan, he might mention,  was $235,000, ihe grant for the  Kelowna district being about 75  per cent, more than last year,  there had also been the sum of  $2,000 set aside for the Irrigation  Convention which was to be held  in August.  There were several other matters, said the mayor, which had  not been decided when he left  Victoria, and he hoped there would  be other grants for the district  included in this year's estimates.  There  would   be  no  grant, he  was sorry to say, for a new courthouse this year.    The government  had taken the view that with the  advent of the railway into Kelowna  J the   increase  in population would  be so rapid, and the growth of the  district  ao  fast,   that   a   building  j wliich   could   be   erected   on   the  | small   amount   which   could     be  | granted   now   would    be   utterly  inadequate in three years' time.  In interviewing the government  on Tuesday next. This is a photo  record of the well known performance of Obei Ammergau. The  performance will be under the  personal direction of Mr. Robert  Duncan of Dreamland Theatre. An  orchestra of about ten pieces will  render suitable selections and  Grant Ferrier, one of Kelowna's  most popular vocalists will render  appropriate songB. It is to be  hoped that the public will show  their appreciation of these offorts  bv their patronage.  The little village of Ober-  Aininergau is in tipper Bavaria,  about 34 miles south of Munich.  The inhabitants, about 1,250 in  number, are excellent carvers in  wood and ivory, but Ober-Ammer-  gau in chiefly celebrated for the  decennial Passion Play, performed  by more than 500 actors. A permanent theBtre has been erected,  which accommodates 6,000 spectators. The play was instituted in  1634, in accordance wilh a vow of  gratitude for the cessation of  pestilence. It comprises the entire  narrative of the Passion, interspersed with the Old Testament  tableaux, and lasts from 8 a.m. to  5 p.m., wilh IJ hours interlude.  The performance'of 1870, interrupted by the Franco-German war,  was repeated in 1871, and the last  took place in 1910.  FOR SALE  On Lawson Avenue  100 feet of frontage by 150.
