AUGUST 26, 1920.���4 PAGES  0130 Per Annum  Fix Sept. 8 as Date  for Hotel Site PleMclte  Ratepayers' Approval Needed  for Exchange of Park  Property  Voting on the proposed exchange of land in the city park for  purposes of a hotel site is to take  place on Wednesday, September  8th. This wai the decision reached at a meeting of the city council  held Monday evening last, when a  plan of the present site owned by  the old hotel syndicate and of the  proposed addition by way of exchange with the city, and a draft  agreement and by-law prepared  by the city solicitors were submitted for consideration. The agree-1  ment was, after some discussion,  accepted and authorized to be  signed, subject, of course, to the  approval bv the rate payers b��ing  given to the proposed exchange.  Br efly the scheme involves the  granting'to the city by the syndicate of 2974 square feet of land  running in front of the hotel site,  and occupied at presunl by the  eastern end of the wooden promenade, and receiving in exchange  .from tha city 6775 square feet of  park property of such a shape as  to turn the present awkward triangle into a more convenient build ���  ing site. On this the syndicate is  to erect a modern tourist hotel.  The names appearing on the agreement as representing the hotel  syndicate are J. F. Burne, P. DuMoulin, and F. R. E. DeHart        ���*  In course of the discussion  Mayor Sutherland said that actually the council had no more voice  in the matter than the rest of the  ratepayers. They had been asked  by the Board of Trade to submit  the question to a popular vote, and  they had accordingly arranged to  do so.   The final decision would  rest  entirely with  the ratepayers.  A letter from the Board of Trade  drew attention to lhe serioua pos  ition in which the farmers of Glen,  more were placed by the cutting  of the road to town by the con  struction of the C.N.R. grade. The  Board was taking the matter up  with the authorities at Ottawa,  and suggested the Council lend  their support, lt Was decided to  comply with this request.  A letter was read from a resident of Leon Avenue, complaining  of the existence of a slaughter  house in that vicinity, and asking  that the health authorities make an  inspection.  Some time ago a request was  made by a number of the local  jitney drivers asking for a by-law  imposing a licence fee on all automobiles plying for passengers.  This by-law was now introduced  and given preliminary readings.  The fee was fixed at $10 per half  year for the car and $5 per Kilf  vear tor the driver,  A contract was awarded to G. L.  Dore nnd H. Ryan for lhe building  |*of a house under the "Better Housing" scheme for Capt. lownsend,  the amount of the tender being  $2975.  The appointment of G. Chaplin,  of Okanrgan Mission, as assistant  constable was confirmed, E. Croft,  engaged some few weeks ago,"having resigned.  D. Chapman was also appointed  pound-keeper in place of Archie  Johnson, who had left the city.  Attention was drawn to the fact  that the Ethel Street bridge over  Mill Creek was unsafe for heavy  traffic, and the Board of Works  was instructed to have a notice  posted on the bridge to that effect.  It was also mentioned that the  bridges on Abbott street and Richter street needed a conaiderable  amount of work doing on them to  put them into satisfactory condition.  The meeting adjourned until  Tuesday, September 7th.  Knocked Down 3y  Car and Left in Road  The meanest specimen of the  automobile "road hog" is the man  who, after having run intb and injured a pedestrian, will speed  away under cover of darkness,  leaving his victim to his fate. It  was the misfortune of Chas. Mc-  Grand, a man employed at the  Scotty Creek Irrigation Co.'s camp  to meet one of this despicable  clan last Monday evening, and as  a result of the encounter lies in the  Kelowna Hospital suffering from  severe injuries. Ha' was walking  along tbe road when a car travelling at a high speed Snd without  lights, suddenly loomed up in the  darkness and struck him. This is  all he remembers ror a little later  he waa found lying unconscious by  thelroadsideby the Buff am brothers  who were riding home to the Bul  man ranch. Dr. Campbell was  phoned for and the injured man  waa brought into town. Up to the  present the police have been unable to find any trace of the autoist  responsible.  Mrs. R. Smart was a passenger  to Vancouver to-day. .  Mrs. W. Murray is a visitor to  Enderby this week.  Messrs. Weld and Maclaren have  formed a partnership thia week  and are opening an oflice for real  estate and insurance business in  the premises until lately occupied  by the Okanagan Brokerage op-  pocite the GP.R. wharf.  Mrs. D. Coleman, wife of vice-  president Coleman, of the GP.R  western lines, was drowned Tuesday at Lake Windermere, where  she was staying with her three  children.

In the grading of the  new line both roads into Glenmore  were cut through, and the more  direct road through Bankhead and  the one used almost exclusively  for fruit hauling, is now in a very  bad state at the point where it  crosses the line. The old road haa  been cut away and a rough level  crossing made with circuitous path  through Cousins' orchard. The  grade is bad and the road has already been churned up by the  traffic unti' 't ia deep in loose sand  and du" rivers of cars have to  exer' utmost care in  the  manipulation (of their engines to  prevent being stalled there. Some  difficulty :eems to have arisen over  the construction of a bridge at that  point, and it is understood that  plans for this have not yet been  passed by the engineers. Thia  means that the present dangerous  loop must.be used indefinitely.  The fruit growers of the Glenmore valley are naturally rowing  anxious and have urged .e Board  of Trade to take up theii grievance  with the proper authorities. Accordingly at a meeting of the council of the Board held laat Friday, it  was decided to send an urg-nt  wire to the minister ef railways,  the minister of public works, and  President Hanna of tha Canadian  National Railways.  Mr. R. E. Denison again suggest-  ed to the Board that the consider  | the matter of establishing a wood,  yard for the citv, but the council  felt that it did not fall within the  p 'wer of the Board to do anything.  The secretary reported that in  the interval since the last meeting  of the Board considerable correspondence had been carried on under the direction of the president  and vice-president. The matter  of the provision of refrigerator  space for fruit on vessels being  constructed for the Asiatic trade  had been successfully taken up  with the Department of Marine at  Ottawa.  It was decided that the Board  of Trade call a public meeting to  discuss the matter of the plebiscite  re hotel site in the city park and  that a committee be appointed to  make definite arrangements therefor.  The committee as afterwards  agreed upon consists of Messrs.  Rogers, Sutherland, Crawford, Ballard and Knowles, As it was  deemed advisable to have Mr.  Crehan present at this meeting,  seeing that he was interested in the  securing of a hotel, the secretary  was instructed to write asking him  when he will be in Kelowna ao  that the date of the meeting may  be fixed accordingly.  Tide of War Turns  ��� Against the Reds  The Russian defeat in Poland is  so complete and so overwhelming  that there is no possibility of the  Bolsheviki reforming their shattei-  ed armies on Polish territory, press  dispatches declare. The prediction was made that all the Red  troopa would be ejected from the  occupied areaa before the end of  the week. Bolshevik prisoners  taken ro date total more than ninety  thousand, according to unofficial  advices.  The Russian Northern army has  opened negotiations for surrender,  according to a report from Vienna,  The dispatch, which is unconfirmed, said that the Bolsheviki sent a  messenger to General Sidorski to  arrange terms of capitulation.  Eight Bolshevik divisions have  been completely annihilated' and  eight others4 reduced by hall, according to unofficial advice* received from Warsaw. Th�� Poli��h  victory is growing. Prisoners already counted total more1 lhan  40.000 More thsn 200 suns were  captured.  labor Candidate in  Field For Bye-Election  Interest in the forthcoming Yale  by-election continues to grow.  One candidate at least is now definitely in the field, in the person  of Tom Richardson, w*ho has been  nominated by a convention of the  Labor party at Vancouver. Mr.  Richardson was formerly a labor  member of the Britiah House of  Commons. J. W. S. Logie of Summerland is to be his campaign  manager. Mr. J. A. McKelvie is  likely to be the choice of the government supporters, while Mr. J.  M. Robinson of Naramata is also  said to have consented to allow  his name to come before the convention in the interests of the  Liberal and Conservative National  party. The Liberals are also said  to be preparing to bring forward a  candidate, and it is very probable  that the G.W.V.A. will seek representation.  G.W.V.A. Notes  Members are reminded of the  meeting next Saturday.  Mr. J. J. Atherton, who is organizing the pierrot troupe, would be  glad to hear of additional talent.  A meeting of the troupe has been  called for Friday of this week at  8 o'clock.  In our notes iast week we asked  what the GW.V.A. of Summerland  thought of the attitude of the Summerland Review in opposing Sunday football by the Boy Scouts.  This was written in,-" i it was  the attitude of certain correspondents of the Review that was intended lo be questioned.  An empire conference of war  veterans, suggested by the GWVA  over s year ago, has been arranged. Cape Town, as the most central p$M>t, has been selected end  the dale is 23rd of February of  next year. Earl Haig has promised  to attend. Prevention of future  wars and emigration are amongst  the matters to be discussed.  We note that the new premier  has made no mention of taxing  war profits. The last report of the  Board of Commerce showed enormous profits to have been made  in the textile business. The Dominion Textile Co. made as high  as 310 per cent, on their common  stbek. The munition millionaires  are all well known, but no action  will ever be taken by the present  House at Ottawa to force these  people to return part of theirs v/ar  wealth to the country. The firms  who supplied the boots for the  first contingent were among the  worst offenders. The average life  of those shoddy boots on Salisbury  Plain waa' about ten data and  much sickness end some deaths  were the result.  The people who supplied the  famous or infsmous Oliver equipment also did verv well. Although  Canadian firms tn the writer's  knowledge offered to manufacture  the English web equipment they  were not on the patronage list, and  the Oliver was manufactured long  alter its worthlessness had been  proved. The men who wore it  will not soon forget the experience.  Hear Mam Interetting Papers  On Control of Pests  The third annual meeting of the  Western Horticulturists, held in  Vernon, B. C, passed off verv  satisfactorily between August 17th  and 20th.  In his opening remarks to the  convention on the morning of the  18th. Dr. D. Warnock. Deputy  Minister of Agriculture, expressed  his pleasure at meeting with eo  meny United States and Departmental officials to consider jointly  problems affecting the horticultural  industry. He made it clear that  the meeting fundamentally was a  get together meeting of the field  inspectors and investigational experts from experimental stations.  Fruit growers were welcomes), and  t*he*re were aeveral in :he audience,  but it wp�� explained that as some  of the discussions were undoubtedly based upon unfinished work,  therefore certain allowances shpu d  be made in the remarks that  followed.  Mr. R. C. Treherne, Dominion  Entomologist for the Province ol  British Columbia, started the convention with a paper on the Codling Moth Control and Eradication  in British Columbia. . He gave the  life history of the moth as it occurred in the Okanaagan Valley and  incorporated in his remarks-the  cost of eradication work from data  established by provincial field  inspectors. Two broods of the  codling moth were found to occur  in the Okanagan, although it was  pointed out that some of lhe first  generation larvae preserved  through into the autumn. He ex- .  plained that the problem of eradication was far more difficult in  young orchards in es much as such  tress were possessed of smooth  bark and the majority of larvae  spun up et ground level or in the  soil neav bet - In older orchards  overwintering larvae more often  occur in the bark above lhe snow  line and it was staled that larvae  wintering above the snow line pos-  ess heavy winter mortality ranging  from 50 to 100 per cent. Larvae  passing the-winter below the snow  line are protected and give rise to  the spring infestation of moths.  Mr. Treherne gave some interesting  notes on the precautions taken,  outlining in full, for the benefit of  the. United Stales officials, the  methoda conducted in Britiah  Columbia for codling moth eradication. It was stated that approximately $20 per sere was the  necessary expenditure for orchard  operation in codling moth, areaa.  He dealt with the influence ol the  refrigerator car and stated that it  cost approximately 50 centa to  inspect each car and that the number of captures made in empty  cars had increased very much in  recent years. He suggested the  application of steam for cleaning  cara.  Mr. W. Downes, of the Dominion  Entomological Staff, Victoria, B.C.,  dealt with the strawberry root  weevil control as practiced at the  coast aections.  "Fire Blight Control," by H P.

Correspondence  Correspondents are requested to make their letters brief and lo the point. The views expressed  are not necessarily endorsed by this publication.  A REPLY TO REV.   R.   EDWARDS  The Editor, Kelowna Rncord.  Dear Sir: In preaching last Sunday on Prohibition the Rev. R. G.  Edwards uttered one most admirable sentiment: "Let the people  know the facts." It strikes me,  however, that Mr. Edwards himself  is ignorant of some of the principal facts. For instance, he told  how Maine and Kansas had refused to repeal their prohibition ar. s,  but he did not tell how Vermont  and New Hampshire repealed  theirs. Probably Mr. Edwards had  never heard of that incident, as it  is not advertised in prohibition  literature.  In 1852 Vermont adopted prohibition and lived under it without  a break for fifty years. Then in  1902 the people went to lhe polls  and abolished Prohibition hv a  large majority. In 1855 New  Hampshire also adopted il and  tried it continuously for forty-eight  vears. lt last in 1903 Prohibition  was abolished by a sweeping majority of the voters. The people  should know these facts.  Mr. Edwards said that "an act  which lessened crime, emptied  poor houses and closed jails, was  a good act for any country." Not  necessarily. If such an act at the  aame time diminished liberty and  increased falsehood and hypocrisy,  then it would be a bad act for any  country. Criminals and paupers  are an insignificant fraction of the  people. Not more than one per  cent of lhe people of Kelowna  were ever either criminals or pan  pera. No country can afford to  injure the character of the average  citizen for the sake of reducing  thia small fraction.  One fact of tremendous import,  ance was omitted from the sermon  of Mr. Edwards, as from all other  prohibition speeches. He did not  mention that wine and beer are  part of the daily food of millions  of human beings who are more  healthy than the people of prohibition communities. In Holland  Belgium, Switzerland and France  to mention only a few countries,  every boy and girl from earliest  childhood drinks wine or beer to  dinner and supper every day, except amongst the poorest classes  In all these countries the length of  human life is greater than among  the white people of the United  States. Are these not among the  facts which the people .should  know?  No matter how honest the individual may be, it is difficult to tell  the whole truth on this subject  from a Baptist pulpit. If Mr. Edwards had advertised a sermon on  hell forty years ago, he would have  had tb fill it with blood-curdling  horrors, or he would have been  condemned as a heretic. Had he  preached twenty years ago on  dancing, cards or the theatre he  would again have been up against  the dogmas of his church. Since  those days the churches have become more enlightened on some  subjects but narrower on others.  With all respects to Mr. Edwards  and his good intentions, I intend  to wait another twenty years before I go to a Baptist church for an  educative*, impartial and philosophical discourse on wine, beer and  tobacco.

Aug. 24, 1920  Two weeks ago we wrote about  the popular habit amongst the local boys of yelling and diving for  money when the boat came in, and  which seemed to fall within the  definition of "Begging" under the  Boy Scout rules. We must say how  pleased we were to note that as  far as our troop members were  concerned the habit practically  ceased after the publication of our  column on the subject. There were  two good things about thia. One,  it showed our scouts were Irving  to live up to our rules and the;  the other that they were reading  the scout column.  .  The Fair is being held earlier  this year so on Friday evening we  plan to put back and set out the  trestles and tables in the Exhibition  Building. We therefore ask all  troop members who played any  basketball to be on hand at the  Exhibition Building on Friday, the  27th, at 7.15 for a snappy half  hour's work. This gives us another  opportunity of seeing whether the  column is being read and an earnest effort made to be a good  scout.  P.L. Ralph Ball and Second E.  Wilson passed the requirements  foi their Rescuers Badge on Monday last before Mr. Robertson.  a       a  Continuation of the camp diary  by "Wolf": "Monday���We haS  arranged this year not to take our  ennual trip to the railway above  us, so instead we called a hike  along the lakeshore, heading south  and which was to take us in all  about six hours. We started approximately at 9.30 after being  supplied with our light lunch by  "Wille" and, though the sky was  overcast, looked forward to a well  spent day. We had onlv journeyed about ten minutes when it began to rain, then pour and finally  drizzle. When it got to the  drizzling stage we quitted the road  and lurned into "Silvan Heights,"  a house formerly owned by Mr.  Crichton. After playing a few  games that required only headwork  the rain began to "let up" and we  were able to continue our route  till lunch time, when we found  ourselves at Varly's Beach. After  a swim we had lunch and rested a  moment to catch our breath before  continuing on our way to Deep  Creek, which we reached about  2.30 p.m. We stopped there long  enough :o enjov lhe scenery and  turned towards home about 2 45  p.m. One member of the party,  thinking he would find a shorter  way, led the Commissioner through  dense brush, through Deep Creek  and back to the lakeshore through  soggy ground, only to find the rest  of the troop awaiting their arrival.  With steady walking the vanguard reached camp at 3.30 and  all fell in for a swim. Mr. McCarthy brought us a feed of cherries,  which we demolished before supper and after tea and football,  combined with camp fire, we  "hit the hay," which in this case  was nothing more or less than good  hard ground.  Tuesday���Having at the time of  writing just partaken of an abnormal meal, the writer's memory may  be somewhat defective, but aome  incidents of the day still temain  clear. It was a scorching hot day  and we felt P.T. exceedingly, to  say the least oi it. The weather  changed, however, rather suddenly  and confined us to our tents for  great part of the day. Mr. Allan  Harris arrived back in camp this  morning and we hope will be a  viaitor with us for the remainder of  the camp. Headquarters tent was  the scene of a gramaphone recital  and as we are sure the members  of that tent would far rather have  been out drilling in a hot sun, their  patience' was to be commended.  In the afternoon it cleared up  sufficiently to allow the troop to  partake of a scouting game in  which it was required to bring in  six different kinds of flowers and  berries of specified colors. Right  up till the last the whole troop vf as  searching every foot of the neighboring country in their endeavors  to locate a white berry, very hard  to find at this time ot year. One  or two were lucky enough to  eventually find one. Bathing parade was followed by tea and a  football match and camp fire ended the day. t  Transcontinental flying across  Canada will be started with a jcar  according Co Major R.

Anita Stewart in  Powerful Photoplay  The Prouty Boosters' Ball was to  blame for it all I  And the theatregoers of Kelowna  have the Prouty Boosters' Ball to  thank for affording them one of  the most appealing photoplays of  the yearin "The Fighting Shepherd-  c3r-," screen version of the famous  book by Caroline Lockhart, starring  Anita Stewart, and which will be  seen at the Empress Theatre on  Monday and Tuesday.  The role of Kate Prentice shows a  girl in .vlioni a splendid character  has been reposed but about whom  a depressing environment has been  enshrouded as a result of living in  the questionable roadhouae from  which her mother derives a livelihood.  The plot begins to unravel when  Kate is saved from the advances of  a rough character through the  chivalry of "Mbrmon Joe," a recluse  ���ih.-.-p herder whose moody ex.  clusiv *ness has a tendency to make  the villagers wary of him. He  provides a separate hut for Kate  on his sheep ranch and thereupon  hinges the big events in the girl's  life and the murder of Joe, all  matters combining in a most in  teresting and gripping tale of a  girl who dared to fight for the  right despite the preponderance of  odds.  1TOH   SALE  FOR SALE, $13,000, the house of G.

Following this, Ralph Dunbar took  the opera on tour, and it has already visited more than two  hundred cities, with remarkable  success, and will be at the Empress  Theatre, Tuesday, September.7th.  That Mr. Dunbar is able to bring  such a production and cast to the  smaller cities has been recently  commented upon editorially. The  substance of these editorial utterances is that when an American  producer with discernment, enterprise, judgment and conscientious  attention to detail, furnishes the  money and brains to bring to the  smaller cities a production of a  -worth-while American operatic  work like "Robin Hood," not just  aB good as was ever given, but  actually superior in many respects  to the best heretofore heqid, it  should be a matter of civic pride  that appreciation be shown by  universal endorsement and capacity patronage.
