With the sinking fund  added the yearly expenditure  would thus probably be leas than  the amount now spent yearly for  scavenging. Besides the sewer  would be large enough to permit  private connections being made  along the route and would accommodate the other two schools when  sanitary closets were installed in  thoae buildings. The Board therefore respectfully suggested the advisability of a careful consideration or reconsideration of the  aubject, with the knowledge that  if the connection was~made the  coat to the city would not be more  than ia being paid for scavenging,  and further that a menace to the  health of the achool in the shape  of the existing insanitary and unsightly outaide closets would be  removed.  Aid. Rattenbury reported that  the sewerage foreman had sunk  aeveral teat holea with the following reault: At the corner of Eli  Avenue and Water Street quicksand was encountered at a depth  of four feet; at the corner of Eli  and Pendozi gravel and water waa  encountered at a depth of four  feet; at the corner of Harvey and  Richter gravel and water were  struck at a depth of three feet aix  inchea. He pointed out that Mr.  Aahbridge'a estimate of $2,700 had  been made upon the supposition  that trenches could be dug to a  depth of from six to seven feet  without the uae of sheet piling,  whereas theae teats indicated that  all work belo >��� four feet would  neceaattate the use of piling.  Mayor Sutherland expressed the  opinion that a pipe line laid at a  depth of from two to three feet,  with a small pump at the school  for forcing the sewage into the  main eewer, would be the moat  economical ayatem to put in.  It waa decided that the council  ahould meet later in committee  and go further into the whole matter.  A letter from the Miniater of  Militia was read acknowledging  receipt of the resolution pasaed recently by the council in reaped to  recruiting. The resolution had  been referred to the proper authorities. .  > Mr. E. C. Weddell waited on the  council in respect to a subdivision  plan of which it was desired to register a portion belonging to his  clients the Ok. Lumber Co., in order to be able to give deeds to the  purchaaera of lots. The ownera of  the balance of the property were  holding things up by refusing to  take any action. Former applications had been refused by the  council and they were now aaked  to reconsider their decision. It waa  decided to bring' the matter up at  the next meeting.  A letter waa read from the city  solicitors with further reference to  the irrigation flume and ditches in  the city. The opinion waa expressed that the city waa not liable for  the maintenance of any part of the  system.  Chief Thomas made a report to  the council regarding aamplea of  milk taken from dealers in accordance with the Milk By-Law. These  had been tested and the reault  given as previoualy published  Aid. Rattenbury pointed out  that at a meeting of the Police  Commissioners at which Chief  Thomas and Fire Chief Jenkina  were present, the commissioners  had decided to recommend H.  Harriaon for the poaition of night  constable ind watchman at a aalary  of seventy-five dollars per month.  ,        t,    , ��� r is. ���       , evinced in the giving of funds to the "tncrwMe. **.

Eastwood, who waa  resident here for a number of  yeara. He went east to join- the  Ontario Forestry draft and from  that waa transferred to the firing  line. It was at the terrible Vimy  Ridge that he met his death on  April 9th. Eastwood was a fine  type of young fellow and well  liked. He was a sawyer by trade  and had worked at both the Kelowna Sawmill and Munson's. He  waa thirty years of age and a member of the Rebekah Lodge here.  All doubt about the truth of the  report concerning the death of  C. Giove, formerly of Kelowna, has  been removed by a letltr from his  sister to Mr. Mothie, which gives  particulars. He was wounded in  the fight for Vimy Ridge and so  badly as to necessitate the amputation of a leg. He never recovered  from the shock of the operation,  nnd died April 14th in hospital in  France.  Chas. Gowen who went from  Keiowna to join the Motor Transport is reported ill in hospital at  Halifax, Yorkshire.

The French have now organized a  corps of scene-painters to paint scenery for the purpose of deceiving German airmen.  Great Britain has an organized. salvage corps to save everything on the  battlefield. Even the rags are collected and aold.  The deserters from the Turkish army,  100,000 strong, are said to have lied  into the mountains and to be existing  through brigandage.  The traffic on the roads behind the  British front is more denae than that  on Fifth Avenue, New York, and is  controlled by traffic policemen.  In ono day the French fired SI,600,  Minister of Rai ways Will Go  Before Railway Commission  When the Board of Railway  Commissioners meet at Victoria on  June 4, Hon. Mr. Oliver, miniater  of railways, will go before it with a  request that the Canadian Northern  be compelled to complete the undertakings involved in its agreement with the province, including  the construction of the Okanagan  branch from Kamloops, the  Victoria-Barkely Sound line and  the terminals in Vancouver and  Victoria. He will also ask the commission to order a connection made  between the C. N. P.'s Patricia Bay  line and V. and S. line in order to  give Sidney communication with  the Patricia Bay road.  The minister takes the view that  if the C. N. P. considers itself now  under the jurisdiction of the Dominion Railway Commission and not  under the province by virtue of  the Dcminion order-in-council  which Sir William Mackenzie obtained in February, then the  Dominion Railway Board is the  proper authority to order the company to cairy aut its undertakings  in thia provance.  News of Near  Neighbours  There mema to be a strong  doubt aa to the opening of a soldiers' training camp at Vernon  thia year.  The six-year-oldIrjaughter of Mr.  an3 Mrs. J. M. Christian, of Cranbrook, died last week from acute  paralysis, caused by a wood tick  bite.  The Summerland Board of Trade  was advised by Mr. J. W. Jones,  ML.A., that there was no possibility of the government considering  the establishment of an agricultural college in the valley at ptescnt.    .

At lhe recent-meeting of the  officials and agenls of lhe C.P.R.  held in Vernon some figures were  produced which show that the  shipments of apples from the Okanagan last season were just about  four times as much as in 1913,  while the shipment of vegetables  were almost doubled in lhat time.  Last year the total shipments of  produce from the Okanagan over  the C.P.R. lines come to 3036 cars,  of which 1612 cars weie apples,  275 cars of oiher fruits, ar.d I 149  cars of vegetables, &c. In 1913  the output was 1492 cars, of which  449 cars were apples, 417 other  fruits, and 626 vegetables. Had'  last year been an average one for  peaches, apricots, and other soft  fruits, the totals would have been  swelled by at least 500 cars, as  there were 753 cars of these fruija  shipped in 1915, aa against 275 in  1916.

G.W.CDNNINQHAH  AUCTIONEER  and  General Commission  Merchant  (Successor to J. C. Stockwell)  Second - Hand Goods  Bought or Sold on  Commission  Flour and Feed Always  in Stock  Next to the C.P.R. wharf,  Kelowna  Edited by Pioneer. Mav 29th, 1917  over our mail and boat service,  We do not forget the Kelowna  Board of Trade and other gentle  men who so kindly assisted us at  this opportune moment.  Mr. James Duncan was a pas  senger to Kelowna by Friday's  boat. He reports an interview  with Mr. Jones,, M.L.A., and one  on the boat with Mr. McNab. preparing him for the delegation  which was to meet him at West  bank wharf, where he filled the  office of introducer.  The delegation which met Mr.  McNab at Westbank included  Messrs. Russell, Scot Blackwood  and Last, who accompanied him  as far as Gellatly where they received a warm reception.  The store of Mr. Last was a busy  place on Friday evening, when a  meeting had been hurriedly convened to meet Mr. McNab, lhe  assistant supt. of the western division of the C.P.R., who wss in  the district and had kindly consented to spare them a little of his  time. If they wanted to put in a  car slip at their wharf he had the  interests ol the C.P.R. to look after and gave them a brief outline  of the conditions under which a  car slip could be obtained. Several  other matters were dealt with but  Mr. McNab was very careful not  to commit himself, he only promised one thing, that was he.would  come again next Friday and take  a preliminary survey.  Orders by command for week  ending 9th June. 1917.  Orderly patrol for week, Beaveis;  next for duty Wolves.  PARADES: The combined  troop will parade at the club room  on Wednesday the 6th inatsnt at  7.15 p.m. and on Saturday the 9th  instant at 2.30 p.m.  1 here will be a business session  of the Cc urt of Honour at the office  of S. M. Weddle on Friday the 8th  instant at 7.30 p.m.  Our total receipts for the concert  amount to $192.85 and our total ex*  penses to $55.65, making net proceeds of $137.20, which ia about  $30.00 less than last ye-r. Last  yesr we had 100 reserved seats at  75c however which just about accounts for the difference. In our  expenses are included disbursements for programs, posters, tickets,  building and lighting the stage,  rent of opera house, moving piano,  pictures and flowers. Scout C.  Rowcliffe made a good first for the  number of tickets sold having  $38.00 worth to his credit, Scout  C. McKenzie * aa second with  $18.75 and Second L. DuMoulin  third with $1475. There were 20  more boys selling tickets last year  so the efforts of those this year are  to be congratulated very much.  The above three scouts can have  their choice in scout, material for  the prizes awarded. _  In connection with the troop  photo taken by Mr. Whillis he has  offered to give us a framed copy if  we can sell 24 of them. Five have  been sold already so that leaves us  19.  A long session of the court of  honour was held last Friday evening at which much business was  transacted. What you are all no  doubt most interested in was the  selection of Cedar Creek again as  our site for this year's troop camp,  provided of course we can get permission to go there. Mr. Alister  Cameron has kindly offered to guide  us into another jaunt over the hills,  and that is worth a whole camp in  itself.  P.L. Henry Crowley was appointed acting Troop Leader and  Secretary up to the end of June,  with Second Chas. Gaddes as his  assistant. From the 4th of June  the Curlews and Beavers are to be  amalgamated under the name of  Beavers with Jas. Calder as leader  and Chas. Gaddes as second, Lloyd  Day to be second of the Eagles,  under P.L. Thos. Snashall. G. Clifford Cunningham applied to join  the troop and was assigned to P.L.  Snashall for his Tendei foot train-  j. Scout F. Whitehead was given leave of absence until after his  matriculation exams are over.  A drummer, being very fond of  corn on the cob, ate ear alter ear.  Finally, the pretty waitress, after  she'd brought him his tenth ear,  said tartly: "Don't you think you  would ssve half a dollar or so if  you boarded at a livery stable ?'

Hand in your names therefore  right away and we shall see that an  examiner  is appointed   for  you.  We have received the following  letter from Commissioner Heneage,  thanking us for the collection of  soaps. We might say these pictures will be shown all over the  province so they will be quite a  little ad. for Kelowna in themselves.  "Dear Mr. Weddle���I do not  know how to adequately thank you  and every member of your troop  for the album of photographs of the  troop, so as to express what I feel.  I am delighted to have the photos,  but am more thsn delighted to  know of the kindly feeling which  prompted you to give them to me.  I can assure you all that this feeling is most warmly reciprocated,  and I sincerely hope that the members of the I st Kelowna Troop  will always look upon me not only  ss their commissioner but as their  friend and brother scout.

Duggan has put in twenty-  six acres of beans on the Harvey  place at Wood's lake.  The Rev. T. Griffiths will preach  morning and evening at the Knox  church next Sunday.  Mr. L. V. Rogers has moved  over into Mr. Bigger'a house lately  vacated by Dr, Arnott.  The Aquatic Association is advertising for a caretaker during the  summer months.  If every citizen does hia duty  next Thursday, "Clean-up-Day,"  Kelowna should be a brighter,  cleaner and sweeter place for some  time to come.  The Womana' Institute look for  good attendance at their meeting  on Saturday June 2nd. The Red  Cross is in need of funds and it is  hoped that the proceeds from the  refreshments served may aid materially.  Mrs. Benmore and family re.  turned Tuesday from "Vernon, to.  gether with their household effects,  which are being moved to the  K.L.O., where the family will take  up residence.  At the police court Tuesday afternoon a boy was brought before  the magistrate charged with " committing a nuisance by drowning a  dog in the lake and leaving the  carcase therein to contaminate the  water supply and endanger the  health of the public. He was given  a severe reprimand and let out on  suspended sentence.  In accordance with the usual  custom for the summer months,  the Baptist Sunday-school will  change its time of meeting, starting  next Sunday when school will be  held at 9.30 in the morning instead  of in the afternoon.  The pupils of the high school  held a picnic at the Mission on  Saturday, wheie a very pleasant  time was spent. So thorough were  arrangements for a good time that  iiven a gramaphone was taken  long together with two ice cream  reezers and some chickens, he-  Ides the usual picnic fare.  It taken more than rain to dampen the ardour of some people.  Another picnic that had been arranged for the 24th was one to the  Mission by the young ladies and  men of the Baptist church. When  the morning dew turned to something more threatening the young  men got busy, scrubbed the club  room, decorated it with apple  blossom, and invited the ladies up  to supper���which proved a very  sumptuous one. The evening was  spent in a social manner, the gramaphone helping considerably.  Kelowna Meets Peachland  In Ball Game  The old - time enthusiasm for  baseball was partly revived last  Thursday when, in spite of the  rrlost inclement weather n team  left the orchard city to do battle  with Peachland's nine. Kelowna's  representatives were as follows:  First base, W. Anderson, second  H. Roth, third, E. Neumeyer, short  atop, J. Pavle, field, A. Smith, T.  Duggan, J. Copeland, battery, A.  Bertram and G. Cady; umpire, E.  Raymer; reserve, Q. Fallis (who  played for Peachland I).  ���There was a good crov ,1 of fans  to greet the team at Peachland  and the game took place on a  piece of ground called Vimy Ridge  (on account of the altitude and  nature of the ground). After a  good fast game Kelowna proved  the victors with a score of 5 runs  to 3. A return match will be played in the near future some Thursday afternoon, when the Peachland  boys will visit Kelowns.  Duncan Dundas returned from  the coast Tuesday.  Mr! and Mrs. J. Gibbs, of Vernon, were visitors in town Tuesday.  Mr. and Mrs. Msidment left  Kelowna last week and are now  on their way to Australia,  H. Harrison has been appointed  night constable and watchman,  and will commence his duties on  the first of June.  Messrs. Stirling & Pitcairn are  enlarging their packing shed on the  K.L.O. bench.  Mr. and Mrs. Askew and family  returned yesterday, from Vancouver, where they have resided for  some months.  Mr. and Mrs. C. W.

A musical evening will be held  at the Aquatic Club on Tuesday,  June' 19th, in aid of the Red Cross.  Refreshments will be served.  Aid. H. H. Millie returned Monday from Armstrong. He is undergoing special treatment, and  hopes for speedy and good results.  Mr. R. A. Copeland is the lastest  convert to the automobile. When  such a confirmed herse lover as  R. A. deserts the lines for the steering wheel it looks indeed as though  the day of the horse had departed.  An amendment to the Municipal  Act allows the municipal vote to  ratepayers who are one year in arrears with their taxes. Previously  only those could vote who had  paid the current year's taxes.  H. W. Arbuckle is taking over  temporarily the office duties of the  city's electric light and water department, relieving Mr, Fred Royle,  who has been advised owing to ill  health to take a complete rest and  change.  It is said that during the clean-up  in Penticton a few weeks ago, some  cans were unearthed from a rubbish  heap and recognized aa having  been taken down on the old  "Penticton." Of course we have  nothing like that in Kelowna. but  to see some people's backyards  makes One think that every meal  they eat must come out of a can.  The Mission road for a considerable distance north of the Mission  bridge is under water, and hardly  distinguishable from the bed of the  creek.' Already it has reached a  depth of two feet in places, and  people familiar with conditions  back in the hills say this is only the  beginning, as the snow is very  plentiful on the watersheds. A  large part of -the South Kelowna  Land Co.'s pastures and surround  ing flat lands are included in the  flooded area.  Members of the Farmers' Institute are reminded that entries for  the crop competitions should be  sent in at once.

"Intolerance" Coming  to Kelowna  Turkey Swept By Famine  and Pestilence  The attraction at the Kelowna  Theatre Wednesday evening June  31st, will be D. W. Griffith's latest  masterpiece, "Intolerance." Judging from the popularity of the only  other big spectacle made by Mr.  Griffith, "Birth of a Nation,' it ie  reasonable to assume that the advance sale will be the largest ever  known in the theatre in thie city.  To say that "Intolerance" far surpasses Mr. Grfffith.B former masterpiece, is but to repeat the unanimous opinion of the, press all over,  the country. Certainly a* a spectacle, it ie without exception the  moet marvellous production of  etage or ecreen. In it Mr. Griffith  hae traced a univereal theme  through varioue periode of the  world's history, ancient sacred,  medieval and modern times being  utilized. The ecenee of the four  distinct stories follow one another  in rapid succeeeion. There ie no  attempt at hietorical aequence,  but the evente are ahown as thej  might flash across the mind in an  effort to parallel the life of the different ages. "Intolerance" ehowe  that through all the agee the seme  passions, the same joys and the  same sorrows have obtained and  Mr. Griffith symbolizes them by  the cradle, endlessly rocking.  Through it all the events shown are  caused by the intolerance ot Man  The scene of the modern story  is laid in an American city and  shows the efforts of so-called reformers to stifle personal liberty.  The story of the sacred time is laid  in Judea, ehowing epieodee from  the life of the Nazarene and end  ing with the Crucifixion ol  Golgotha. In the medieval atory  ie shown the massacre of the Hug-  enots. The ancient time portrayed  is in the heyday of Babylon ar.d  afterwards in the days of ils  destruction of Cyrus and the  Persians.
