 I . .��� . '   ,     IL    ���> '�����"  KdaUma  VOL. IX.   NO. 7.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY, JANUARY 4, 1917.-4 PAGES  Will Test Coal as  Power House Fuel  Proposal to Revive the Poll Tax  for Patriotic Fund  A proposal to revive the old  foil Tax, abolished some two  or three years ago, in order to  raise funds for the J'utriotic  Fund, was the scheme submitted to tihe council at last Friday morning's meeting, and  was contained in a resolution  forwarded for endorsement irom  the municipality of Point Grey.  The council, however, dii n,A  favor the idea, though there was  a feeling that the tax should be  reimposed' upon all foreigners in  the province, in order to i'ive  them an opportunity of contributing to the revenue.  In giving authority to the  Light and Water committee to  -purchase further supplies of fuel  for the power house, the couu :il  also gave instructions that the  engineer in charge should \,ake  exhaustive tests to determine  whether there would be anv saving to be effected by using coal  instead of wood.  A tender for repairs to the gasoline fire engine was referred to  the incoming council for consideration.  Aid. Copeland reported- that  the necessary repairs had been  made to the Pendozi street  bridge.  %  Death of the Canadian  Postmaster-General  Hon. Thos. Chase Casgein,  postmaster-general of Canada died  of pneumonia on Friday at Ottawa.  Mr. Casgrain became ill several  days ago after hit return from New  York, having been seized with a  chill on his return journey.  Thomas Case Cssgrian was born  at Detroit in 1851, the son of the  late Senator Charles E. Casgrain.  After twenty years at the provincial  capital practising law he removed  to Montreal where he become one  of the bar. At the trial of Louis  Riel for high treason at Regina in  1885, he was junior council for the  crown.  From 1896 to 1904 Mr. Casgrain  sat in the House of Commons for  Montmorency. The next few years  he devoted to his law practice but  came into the public again during  the reciprocity campaign through  his ardent opposition to the Taft  Fielding compact. When the  Borden governmnt came into power, he was appointed to the Inter  national Waterways Commission  and in 1912 became chairman of  the Canadian section. He became  postmaster-general on the retirement of Hon. L. P. Pelleiier in  October, 1914.  News of Near  Neighbours  There is something like an epidemic in Peachland of chicken pox  and la grippe.  Mr. Murtchie and Mrs. W. C.  Co-rsar of Glenrosa were married  at Pracliland last week.  Sumiiieilanu's Board ol Trade  almost unanimously endorsed the  movement for a Saturday half-holiday.  There seems likely to be a three-  cornered fight for the reeveship ol  Penticton. The candidates in the  field    are E. Foley-Benntt, W. A.  McKenzie, and K. McKenzie.  It is staled lhat the case uf T. J.  McAlpine against lhe Summerland  municipality for damages alleged  to have been done to his house by  water from a domestic water pipe,  and which was decided in favour  ol the municipality at the county  court ia to be carried to the Court  of Appeals.  Thirty-one of the telephone users  of Summerland have been shut off  from service for about ten d.iys,  due to the deterioration of 250  feet of underground cable. Electrolytic action set up by strong currant honeycombed the cable so  bad y as to put it out oPbusiness.  Mr. Geo. N Gartrell nf Summer-  land has been appointed Domion  Fisheries Overseer for the district.  The appointment carries with it  that of Justice of Peace. It is understood that his territory will extend  ftom the C. P. R. main line down  through the Valley to the international boundry. Mr. Gartrell has  been a provincial game warden for  some time.  At the Okanagan Valley Poultry  show held last week at Penticton  Several of the awards went to Kelowna exhibitors. J. M. Harvey  took 4ih for a pen of r.-c. Rhode  Island Reds; 1st cock, 1st, 2nd,  3rd and 4th pullet, and 1st pen in  b.-c. Rhode Island Reds, and special for best cock in R. I. Reds.  Mack Copeland won 2nd cock  Barred Rocks, all awards in Light  Brahmas, special for best display  in Asiatic class, special (cup) for  best pen by member of Kelowna  Poultry Association. Mr. Alf. Notley made a good showing with his  famous Silver Campines carrying  off all awards except 3rd pen  specials foi best pair Campines  and best hen. There were 550 entries in all and the show was  most successful one.  General Morrone, the Italian  minister of war, speaking in thc  Chamber, admitted that the  Austrians and Germans arc preparing a great offensive against  the Italian front for the sprin .  A deputy in the course of.a  speech alluded to the forth-coming offensive, and expressed the  hope that the necessary preparations were being taken to resist it, and sufficient artillery,  ammunition, and troops beta?  concentrated where necessary  *S  Half-Holiday Problem  Opinion Vacillates Between Thursday and Saturday���Resolution  Passed Favors the Former  At a meeting of the Kelowna  Merchants' Association held en  Friday evening last the referendum vote which is to be taken  next week in the city to .lecide  upon the day for the weekly  halt-holiday as laid down in the  recent Provincial act came up  for discussion. While a number  of the merchants present w��te  for themselves in favor ot Saturday for the hali-hoiiday, in  delerence to the apparent c'rsire  of the country districts that  the Thursday afternoon holiday  be retained, it was decided to  make a recommendation to that  effect.  The meeting was in reality  the annual meeting of the Association, but the usual business  of election of officers, etc., was  left over until next month in  order to ailord time for consideration of a proposal from the  Board of Trade to amalgamate  the Association with that body.  The plan suggested provided for  a separate executive, which  would deal with all questions  ejecting the merchants, thus  acting in the same capacity as  the present association. It was  contended in support of the plat*  that not only would the Board  of Trade benefit by an additional membership of the kind that  was most desirable, but that  as one fee would cover both organizations, a peat economy  would be effected thereby.  Fearful Brink Tragedy  Public Meeting  will 'be held in Raymer's  Hall (opposite the Board  of Trade building), on Friday, Jan. 5th, 1917. at 8  p.m., to afford the retiring  . Council, School Trustees,  and candidates for the  coming Municipal Election  an opportunity to meet the  Electors.  G. H. DUNN,  City Clark.  The city of Tokio, Japan, has  offered for public subscription  bonds to the amount of ten million yen, or five million dollars,  to be used in the development  of electrical enterprises.  The Point Grey council is advocating the revival of the old  Poll Tax for the purpose of  raising money for the Patriotic  Fund  Fire broke out ta the barns of  the Toronto Street Railway Co,  last Thursday, gutting the  building and doing damage to  the extentof 5750,000. Three  hundred cars, and an air compressor plant worth $,10,000  were among the property destroyed.  England began eating war  bread Monday, many bakers  having started using regulation  flour last week. Except ta colour, war bread'shows but slight  difference. from ordinary white  bread. It is darker but by no  means brown in hue. It tastes  much like ordinary bread. In  Scotland there is another week's  supply of white flour.

Mrs. Chaters, the sole survivor of the family of five, was  badly burnt and injured and now  lies ta the hospital.  According to Mrs. Chater's  story, her husband, who was a  nrin hand, arrived home about  7 o'clock Thursday evening intoxicated. He demanded more  liquor, and when his wife failed  to produce it he created a scene  In the excitement a lamp was  upset, and flaming oil spreading  over the floor quickly set fire to  the frame building. Chaters,  stupified by liquor, was quicKl,  overcome, and the three childre i  the eldest of whom was only  three years of age, perished  while the mother was struggling  to open a way of escape through  a window. It was with the utmost difficulty that Mrs. Chaters forced her way out of the  burning building.  Britain Despatches  Reply to Peace Note  Answer is Straight to the Point���  Leaves No Doubt as to Situation  ' From the Allies' Viewpoint  The text of the Allies' reply to  therecent German peace proposals  lollows largely aa might have been  expected upon the utterances ol  Premier Lloyd George in his  speech at the opening uf Parliament.  'The note handed to the diplomats, said:  " 1 he Allied governments of Belgium, France, Great Britain Italy,  Japan, Montenegro, Portugal, Russia, Roumania and Serbia, united  in lhe defence ol the liberty uf  their peoples in true engagement  will not separately lay down their  arms and have decided collectively  to' answer the so-called peace proposal.  "First of all the Allies protest  against the enemy's assertions attempting to throw on the Allies responsibility for the war.  Also the proclamation of the  Central Powers claiming victory  Both assertions are untrue.  "For thirty months the Allies  have sustained the war which they  did the utmost to prevent and they  have shown by their acts their attachment for peace.  '"This attachment ia just as strong  to-day as 1914. After the violations  (by the Central Powers) and their  engagement in the war they (the  Allies) cannot end the war at Germany's suggestion without any conditions with which to open negotiations."  "The German proposal is not an  offer of peace. The proposition appears more like a war manoeuvre.  "As far as the past is concerned,  the (German) note ignores facts  date and figures showing that Germany wanted,. provoked and declared the war.

Members of Workmens' Compensation Board Appointed  The question as to the three  government appointees to the  Workmen's Compensation board  has been settled by an announcement- that Messrs. E. S. H.  Winn, of Rossland, Parker Williams, M. L. A., of Newcastle,  and Hugh B. Gilmour, of Vancouver, had been selected by the  government to constitute the  new board to administer the act.  Mr. Winn will act as chairman  ol the board for ten years, at  $5,000 per year, Mr. Parker Williams will serve on the board  for nine years at $4,000 per  year, and Mr. Gilmour for eight  years at $4,000 per year.  There were over one hundred  applications for the positions,  which are the first plums to be  handed out by the new government. Several unsuccessful candidates in the general election  were among the applicants, and  a strong movement was made  to have Mr. A. V. Pineo, deputy  attorney-general under the Hon.  W. J. Bowser, appointed chairman of the board, largely on  the grpund that he had been the  chairman of the commission  which investigated the various  compensation systems and drew  up the British Columbia act.  Now that the appointments to  the board have been made, it is  expected that bye-elections will  be announced in both Newcastle  and Alberni so that these constituencies can elect representatives in time for the opening of  the legislature on February 22.  C. W. Frazee,,of Halifax, has  been appointed general supervisor of the Royal Bank ta B.C.  ta succession to C. A. Crosbie,  who is retiring.

Scouts of all ranks will  look forward to welcoming then-  present Chief Scout to British  Columbia. We all wish your  lixcellejncies a very Happy New  Veal."  We have also received the fol-  lowing circular letter from the  Hon. Dominion Secretary willi  regard to the War Service  Badges: "Representations have  beeu made to the Canadian General Council that the conditions  laid down by the Headquarters  Council relating to, the '.Twenty -  eight-days War Service Badge'  are not fully applicable to Canadian conditions. This contention appears to be borne out by  the applications received to 'late  from dillerent parts of the Dom  tniou, and the Executive officers  have accordingly ielt that some  modification should be made ol  the existing regulations govern  ing this badge. Applications  will accordingly be accepted on  the basis of eighty-four hours  service instead of the original  ondition of twenty-eight days  service of at least three hours  per day being insisted upon. An  opportunity will under these  conditions be allorded to lio_,  Scouts generally,' and particularly to those residing in the  smaller centres to qualify for  this badge. The rule governm  the award of the One-hundred-  days' War Service Badge will remain as it is." The letter was  signed by Mr. Gerald H. Brown  honourary  Dominion Secretary.  Victoria Headquarters has  also requested us to publish the  following:���  The Boy Scouts and Religion  It has t>een said and is still  believed by some that there is  no religion back of the Boy  Scout movement. True it is  that the Association does not  ally itself with any particular  faith or denomination, but it  has, and has had since its inception, a very clear and definite  religious aim underlying its  whole programme. A Scout  promises to.do his duty to God  at the very outset, and Sir Rob-'  ert Baden Powell, in his "Scouting for Boys" says: "The study  of God's work is a fit subject  for Sunday instruction. Scout  Masters must have a full appreciation of the religious and  moral aim underlying the practical instruction all through lhe  scheme of scouting." The religious policy of the movement  states: "It is expected that every Scout shall belong to some  religious denomination and attend its services." Many successful troops of Boy Scouts are  connected with churches and religious institutions. Surely-  then the Boy IScouts Association  is a religious organization with  a programme broad enough to  embrace all denominatians of  the Christian fgith. Charles  Stelzle, in his "Boys of the  Streets and How to Win Them"  tavs: "Sometimes we are so  much concerned about there be  ing religion enough in aur plans  for the Boy that we forget to  leave enough Boy in the plans."

Phone 214 Our motto: " Qualify and Service "  I  Printed Butter  Wrappers  According to the new  Dominion Government  regulation! all farmer*  who tell butter either  to the store* or privately, are required to have  it properly covered in  a wrapper on which  MUST appear in prominent letters the words  "DAIRY BUTTER."  Tha fact is also ��m-  phasized that all butter  in auch packagea mutt  be of the full net weight  of sixteen ounces, and  in default of same a  fine of from $10 to $30  for each offence is imposed. Whey butter  must be so labelled  even when mixed with  dairy butter* and dairy  butter retains its label  though it be mixed  with the creamery product.  You can be supplied  with neatly - printed  wrappers for your  butter at the Kelowna  Record Office, for the  following prices:  10aMTKBr,$1.50  200  500  1000  ����  2.00  3.15  4.50  These prices Include Both the  Paper, which is the best obtainable  for lhe purpose, and the Printing  of same.   Please note this.  Owing to the extraordinary rise in the price of butter  parchment (which has gone up over 100 per cent) we  have been reluctantly obliged to raise our prices slightly.  Nearly all this paper was previously manufactured in Belgium, and needless to say this supply, has been entirely  cut off. Unfortunately there is no guara/itee againsbfur-  ther increases, indeed, they are more than likely.  Kelowna Record
