 Ifelrtomt  VOL. IV.   NO. 6.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY. JAN. 4, 19,  Frozen to Death on  New Year's Day  Disastrous Ending to Festive  Gathering  Frozen to death on New Year's  day only a short distance from  home was the fate of Beauchamp  B. Starkey, upon whose body today an inquest was comu.enced  yesterday. Starkey's corpse was  found in the snow frozen stitt in a  gully about one and a half miles  south of Nahun.  The unfortunate man it appears  had been staying during Christmas  with Mr. H. B. Kinnard, postmaster  at Nahun. On the last day of the  old year he set out to visit the  Somerset brothers about two miles  away. A party of some eight men  had got together there to see the  old year out. He stayed there all  night and about 3 o'clock on  Monday started to walk back to  the postmaster's honsj? He had a  trail of about half a mile to traverse  before striking the wagon road,  but he seems to have been more  or less under the influence of  liquor, and blundered around in  the snow for a short distance falling  several times as his tracks plainly  show finally giving way to the  stupifying cold, and lying down to  die. He was clad only in a light  suit, and entirely unable to stand  exposure to the intense cold of  New Year's day.  The inquest was opened yesterday morning but adjourned to  arrange for attendance of witnesses,  and for the sesult of a postmortem  examination. Starkey was an Englishman, but had been in America  and Canada for a number of years.  He was fairly well-known in town  having worked for a short period  with Collelt Bros. H : is said to  leave a wife (divorced) and two  children in Seattle.  Country Girls' Conceit  The concert and dramatic entertainment organized by the Country  Girls' branch of the Hospital Aid  took place last Friday in the Opera  House. There was a large attendance and ihe affair was voted a  huge success in every way. The  first part of the evening was takan  up by a miscelai. jobs concert consisting of songs by Miss Smith, Mrs.  Thompson, Mrs. Harvey, Messrs.  G. McKenzic, Ferrier, Tom Hill  and Pedlar, and readings by Mrs.  Armstrong and Miss Hogarth. The  accompaniest was Mr. H. T. Boyd.  The second part was a one-act  comedy, " My Turn Next," in which  the dramatis persona; were as  follows :  Taxacum Twitters Mr. W. B. Peaae  Tom Trap, commercial traveller  Mr. Reyuolda  Farmer Wheatear Mr. R. C. Reed  Tim Bolus, Twitters' resistant  Mr. Temple  Lydia, Twitters' wife Mrs. Peters  Cicely, her sister..Miss Dorothy Winter  Peggy, Twitters' house-keeper  Miss Margaret Metcalfe  The Curling Club has had things  in full awing this week, the weather  having been ideal for the popular  winter sport. The club haa now  two sheets of ice in first-class order,  and there has been a large attendance of members during the paat  week. The rinkf have been drawn  for the season, and the competitions have already commenced.  City of  Kelowna  PUBLIC MEETING  will be held in the  OPERA  HOUSE  On Tuesday, January 9th at 8 p.m,  to afford the retiring Council,  School Trustees and candidates for  the coming Municipal Election an  opportunity to meet the electors,  Ladies cordially invited,  By order of  THE MAYOR  Opening of New School-house  for .Ellison District  Hon. Price Ellison Present    -    Big Crowd Attend Concert,  Supper, and Dance  The new Ellison school-houae,  which was opened on Tuesday by  the Hon. Price Ellison certainly  received a thorough housewarm-  ing at the concert, supper and  dance which marked the event.  Ihe crowd of people, probably  about 400, who assembled from  far and wide exceeded all expectations, and those who had charge  of the arrangements had their  hands full to provide accomodation. A temporary shed, 200 feet  long had been erected to shelter  the horses of the visitors, but this  was filled up early, and every  available post in the neighborhood  of the school seemed to have a  horse tied to it. The roads were  in perfect condition for sleighing,  and although a little cold, the clear  air and wonderfully bright moonlight, tempted sleigh loads of peo-  from town and country.  The new school is a fine two-  roomed structure with a full basement, and was built at a cost of  $7,200 by Mr. J. A. Biggar, of  Kelowna. The partition between  what'should have been the two  rooms had been omitted so as to  provide a large room for public  meetings, etc. The school is handsome in appearance, well-lighted,  and heated by means of a furnace.  Ellison people are proud of their  new school and with good reason,  and it was decided to mark the  opening with   a   big   celebration.  The meeting was to have commenced at eight o'clock, but it was  ittle later when Mr. M. Hereron,  secretary of the school trustees,  who with his well-known loyalty  to Ellison district has been largely  instrumental in having the new  school built, took the chair, and on  behalf of the trustees and the people, he expressed the general  pleasure and gratitude to the government for providing the new  school, and to the Hon. Price  Ellison for his energies in avoca-  ting the claims of the district.  An address of welcome and  gratitude to the Hon. Price Ellison  from the school children was read  by Master Willie Hereron.  Mr. J. Cummisky, of Vernon,  was the first speaker. He congratulated the people of Ellison on  the handsome school building  which they were opening. He had  been interested for many years in  educational matters in the province  and it was a great pleasure to him  to be present. He reviewed the  early history of the educational  movement in Canada and the difficulties which had been experienced by the early pioneers in laying  the foundations of the splendid  educational system of the Dom-  ion. He referred in high appreciation to the work of Sir Charles  Tupper, who in 1857 founded the  hirst free schools in the Dominion  of Canada. In the Okanagan the  progress of educational facilities  had been rapid. The many fine  school buildings which were now  to be found in the Valley were  evidences of the great interest  which had been taken in the cause  of education by the Hon. Price  Ellison.  Mr. L. V. Rogers, B.A., of the  Kelowna Public School, in an eloquent address, urged the importance of education, and the necessity of fostering in. the minds  of the young a national spirit, and  loyalty to their own country of  Canada aa a unit of the British  Empire.  Mr. Thomas Lawson, a Kelowna  school trustee and ex-chairman of  the B C. School Trustees Association, added his congratulations on  the magnificent building which the  people of Ellison now possessed.  One of the significant features of  educational matters in the province  was the great improvement in  school buildings over what had  been considered satisfactory in  days gone by. This wns due in a  large measure to the greater interest which was being taken by  school trustees in the work of  education. And not only were  good buildings necessary, but good  teachers also. When good teachers were secured it waa policy on  the part of the trustees to pay them  well, and retain their services.  Frequent changes were bad for the  school, and a hindrance to the advancement  of the scholars.  Mr. A. R. Lord, B.A., principal of  Kelowna school, said that the Canadian system of education wns  second to none in the whole world,  and that ot British Columbia was  second to none in the Dominion.  The great advancement which had  been made in the last few years in  the province was due mainly to  the greater financial support which  had been given by the government  to the cause of education.  Mr. H. H. Millie gave some  reminiscences of his early school  days, and said the Ellison people  should consider themseves fortunate in having so fine a school  building. He urged them to give  every support to their trustees in  their efforts tor the young.  The Hon. Price Ellison, who was  received with great enthusiasm,  expressed in his own hearty way  the pleasure he felt in being present al the opening of the fine  school in which he had taken a  good deal of interest. Everything  about the building was in every  way modern and first-class, and  and the possession of such a  school was a privilege the people  of the district  could be  proud of.  The building was theirs to use  and enjoy. It was designed for  other purposes besides education.  In it the people would have a plnce  to gather together for amusement  and recreation  He was glad to see present his  old friend Mr. Joseph Christian,  ���vho was the oldest school trustee  in B. C. and probably in Canada,  and with a long record of faithful  and energetic service. His own  wife, Mr. Ellison said, had taught  taught school under Mr. Christian  in years past.  He realized keenly the importance of education to the young,  and one of his greatest pleasures  was in lending his assistance to the  building of schools. Nothing was  too good for the work of training  the young, upon whom the hope  of Canada's great future depended.  The government of B. C. were  doing all they could to help on the  educational work, and the new  university which they were about  to establish would be made second  to none. The best that money  could secure would be brought to  it, and when it was completed the  people who lived in the province  would be able to educate their  children from the gro.'nd up as it  were, al a trifling cost.  He turned aside from his subject to speak of the approaching  raihvay development in the valley.  Although somewhat early, he was  in a position to say that at the  present moment there were two  great railroads engaged in a race  to get into the valley. The C.P.R.  in the shape of the Kettle Valley  railway were making active endeavors to take up the work  attempted under the old Midway-  Vernon charter and the Canadian  Northern were preparing to extend  their line into the Valley, for which  the government had promised to  guarantee the bonds. He could  assure his hearers that it would  not be long before we should have  a railway down this magnificent  valley. Engineers were already at  work making surveys for the lines.  And it was coming it us. We had  waited long and patiently for it,  and although, perhaps a little  premature he congratulated the  people upon the prospects before  them. It was rather out of place  perhaps to speak of such matters  at the present gathering, but he  was so full of the subject he could  not help it. The coming of the  railroad meant much for the valley,  and there would be no slip this  time, because there were the right  men behind it.  Returning again to the subject of  the evening he again congratulated  the Ellison people on their new  school, and hoped it would not be  long before they would have to  ask the department to add the two  rooms on top for which the building wns designed,  He stated for the benefit of the  Rutland people present' that it had  been decided to grant their application for a four roomed brick  school, and just as aoon as they  could deliver the conveyence of a  suitaoU site the work would be  commenced.  He thanked the school children  who were seated near the platform  for the address with which they  had presented him, and spokr to  them in a kindly and encouraging  way.  In conclusion he declared the  school open, and wished all present a happy and prosperous New  Year. If, he said, he was in telegraphic communication at all when  they decided to odd the other two  rooms, he would be pleased to  visit them again.  On taking his seat the hon. gentleman was greeted with the singing of " He's a jolly good fellow,"  and enthusiastic applause.  Mr. G. H. E. Hudson, who had  been arranging his cameras on the  plalform, then took a flash light  photograph of the gathering to the  no small alarm of the youngsters.  As the hour was getting late and  supper waiting below, the programme of music had to be curtailed a little. Mrs. Thos. Lawson  who possesses no mean powers as  a reciter, delighted the audience  with a touching incident of railroading on the prairie. Mr. Geo.  McKenzie sang " The Veveran's  Sond," and being loudly encored,  returned andsanga humorous song.  Mr. Ferrier sang "Jack's Yarn," and  as on encore ... My Rosary." Mr.  Harold Todd Boyd accompanied.  An adjournment was then made  to the basement, where the tables  were groaning beneath a load of  good things.  After supper the schoolroom  was cleared for dancing which was  continued until about 4 a.m.  Items from Ellison  (From our own correspondent.)  [Our Ellison correspondent wns  so overcome by the stirring events  of Tuesday night, and the glory of  the moonlight that he bursts into  poetry]  The night was calm and cloudless,  And still as night could be,  When the stars came forth to listen  To the sounds of revelry.  And the mountains all around us  Fash-d in the bright moonlight,  And the sleighbells tinkled loudly  On the Vernon road that night.  A beautiful, clear sky with a  touch of frost in the air, and Luna  floating on high, lighting up the  surrounding mountains and shed  ing forth a glory such as can only  be found in a few favored spots  on this mundane sphere, aervad to  bring together a large and brilliant  audience to celebrate the one event  which we have looked forward lo  weeks.  The annual Christmas Tree and  concert took place on Friday last,  December 22, when the prettily  decorated schoolroom was filled  by a large and enthusiastic audience. The children, under the  skillful direction of their teacher,  Miss P. Raymer, rendered the programme in first class style. Santa  Claua arrived at the close and distributed the various presents lo the  children, also the several jokes  which had been prepared for the  batchelora of the district.  Rutland News.  From our own correspondent.  The Rutland Literary re-opens  again to-morrow (Friday), after the  Christmas holidays, with a paper  from Mr. J. W. Jones on " President Lincoln." The next week's  programme is yet to be arranged,  and on January 19th a paper is to  be read by Mr. Rogers of Kelowna  Public School, on "War" in its  relationship to present day civil-  ization.    All are cordially invited.  The Methodist Sunday School  held its anniversary and rally-day  Sunday morning last, an interesting  feature being a Bible knowledge  contest, in which five scholars took  part:- Joy Fleming, Loraine Woolsey, Lillian Sproule, Rita Maxwell  and Kathleen Campbell. All received the necessary number of  marks for award. The secretary,  Miss Flossie Dilworth, read a well  prepared report of the year's work,  and the Rev. W. Vance gave an  intetesling address to the children.  School Report for December  The following is a list of pupils  gaining percentages worthy of  mention during the month of December.

X.  ranch lost her life, came from Vernon. It appears that the family  were alarmed early New Year'a  morning by an outbreak of fire, and  hastened from the house. Mrs.  McDonald, however, ran back into  the house for some purpose and  was overcome by the smoke, and  being unable to get out again was  burnt to death. Her daughter also  received severe burns, and ia now  in the hospital. The sad affair has  created a great sensgtion in the  district. The McDonalds are old  timers in the valley and highly respected.  The Batchelor's Ball held last  Thursday evening was a highly  successful function and wellatten-  ded.  East Kelowna  On Friday, December 29th the  usual fortnightly meeting of the  East Kelowna Debating Society was  held. The subject for debate was  " Resolved that the Home Government has a right to involve the  Overseas Dominions in war." Despite the inclemency of the weather  the largest audience of the season  turned out. The debate was conducted in a most spirited fashion,  Messrs Allen and Affleck sustaining  the affirmative and Messrs. Reekie  and Salvage the negative. The  speakers for the affirmative asserted that the Home Government had  a legal right of declaring war on  behalf of the Empire, while those  for the negative objected to this as  taxation without representation,  and advocated an imperial parliament. T he judges, Messrs. Wallace, Gilmore and Leggatt had a  hard task, but finally decided in  favor of the affirmative. On Friday, January 12 they are promised  a treat in the shape of a paper on  " Browning " by Mrs. Wallace.  Mr. and Mrs. J. N. Thompson  take this opportunity of thanking  the Presbyterian congregation of  Kelowna for their beautiful Christmas gift, aa well as their kindly  good wishes, which they heartily  appreciate.  Arthur Gator, a cigar maker  died last Saturday night in his room  at the Royal Hotel. Deceased  suffered from an affection of the  heart, but his death was, no doubt,  accelerated by over indulgence in  liquor during the past week or two.  He leavea a wife and two children  in Spokane. The remains are being held for interment pending a  communication from his mother  who lives in Chicago.  The annual Vestry meeting of  the Parish called for Monday next  has been unavoidably postponed  until the following Wednesday evening, January 10th at 8 o'clock.

Advertising <atcs upon application.  The talk of a railroad down the  Valley, a project which has peen  the subject ol hope and conjecture  in Kelowna (or a long time, has  lately been gathering in interest,  and now seems to be crystalizing  in something more definite. That  parties of engineers and surveyors  have been busy in the district has  been common knowledge. The  fact that the announcement of the  purchase by the C. N. R. of the  Coteau Power Company's charter  for the electric Vernon-Kelowna  line should be followed so closely  by the application of the C. P. R���  or rather its offshoot, the Kettle  Valley line, for an extension to its  charter to build up the Valley to  Kelowna and Vernon is significant.  It seems as though the valley which  has waited so long for a railway  was going to be the object of competition between the two most  powerful systems in the country  for first place.  And for this view, which has  gradually been growing upon the  minds of those who have followed  the different moves made, we  have now the authority of no less  a person than the Hon. Price  Ellison, who as minister of finance  of the province, is in a position to  see a little more than the ordinary  individual. In the course of h s  remarks at the Ellison School  opening, he made the statement  that the race between the C. P. R.  and the C. N. R. for a right of way  down the valley was already on  and going strong. The first irn  portant move of the Mackenzie &  Mann interests in purchasing the  electric line franchise had stirred  up the C. P. R. to action, and it  would not be long now before the  puff of the locomotive would bring  development and prosperity into  the valley.  The Olrchard City Record.  Thursday, Jan. 4  vince that applicatian has just been  made to the Minister of Railways  at Otlawa for an enlargement of  the charter powers of the Kettle  River Valley Railway Company,  the subsidiary of the Canadian  Pacific, of which Mr. Jarries J  Warren is president, authorizing  the early extension of this linej from  Kelowna to the City of Vernin.  Surveys for the new link assuring direct communication between  Vernon and the Kootenays are  now in progress, and it is expected that construction of the new  section of about thirty miles' length  will be actually in progress clurinp  1912. It is understood tlml no  request will be made for any provincial assistance in the establish  ment of this new transporlatioi  ���rtery, The decision of the K. R  V. lo extend as far as Vernon if  well understood to have | been  largely influenced by the ieceni  purchase of the Coteau Powei  Company's charter and franchisee  by Sir William Mackenzie, S'r  Donald D. Mann and their associates, who plan to proceed at once  with the building of this electric  system, circumnavigating the Okanagan lakes and which will serve as  an important feeder of traffic to  the Canadian Northern Pacific and  Canadian Northern   system.  All this means much for Kelowna, and Kelowna must be  ready to take advantage of it, and  to turn its benefits this way. There  is no doubt that a tremendous responsibility will fall upon the new  coui.cil to be elected next week,  and the ratepayers should not  hesitate to put aside all other interests, which are petty and unimportant when measured beside the  greater issue, and put in the men  who they know are best qualified  to deal with the representatives of  the railway con.panies.

To the Editor,  Dear Sir :���Is it not <time that  the poultrymen of Kelowna and  district took steps to form an association to help forward the poultry  industry in this neighborhood.  I see by the Vernon paper thi t  a few weeks ago there was a  meeting of those interested in  poultry keeping at which they  organised a Poultry Association on  similar lines to what they have al  several other places in the Province. Such an organization would  be of great benefit to this district  and would be the means of creating greater interest in the keeping  of pure bred poultry, as well as  aiming to put the business part of  it on a proper basis. Not only  fanciers, but everyone who is interested in the utility side of poultry keeping should get together,  and see to it that Kelowna does  not lag behind. I would like tu  s<e this question laken tip by some  of the prominent poultrymen in  Kelowna and the district.  Yours truly,  INTERESTED.

Evidence will be taken and conditions enquired into in all parts of  the province, and the commission's  report when presented will be one  of great value, covering as it will  all phases and aspects of the vexed  milk question, save the element of  price.

Montreal will next year probably  be the scene of a national fruit exhibition on the same big scale as  marked the National Apple Show  at Vancouver.  Postmasters in Ontario have been  instructed to charge a discount cf  ope half of one per cent on Amer-  ican currency in circulation there.  The object is to discourage the unnecessary circulation of United  States currency. Ihe Canadian  banks in Ottawa objected to large  deposits of foreign currency from  the Post Office department, and  hence, the order.  The provincial jail at Nelson is  quarantined owing to a case of  smallpox developing.  It was decided that British Columbia as a province will not undertake the preparation and staging of  an exhibit at the great Panama Exhibition which is to be held in San  Francisco during 1915; but that, instead, strong representations be  made by the Provincial to the Dominion government that, as a matter of national policy, interest and  duty, steps should be taken at an  early date to arrange for thoroughly adequate and creditable Canadian representation. Upon a decision in this regard being reached  by the federal authorities, as no  doubt will be the case, the Province  of British Columbia will cordially  co-operale in every possible way,  in order that the very best possible  display may be made of the resources and characteristic products  of this province as an integral and  very important part of Canada.  A Unique Christmas Gift  One of the most curious and  highly original Christmas boxes  received this year by any British  Columbian, it is safe to say, was  that which arrived at the Legislative Assembly building, literally  plastered over with label warnings  of the necessity of extra careful  handling, and addressed to the  prime minister, Hon. Richard McBride. The package, upon being  cautiously opened, was found to  contain two ornamental frames���  the one of samples illustrative of  spun British Columbia silk as taken  from the cocoon and the other a  living colony of Italian silkworms  busily engaged in the production  of the raw material for my lady's  gown.  The unique Christmas gift came  from Trail, in the Kootenay, where  Vannucchi di Giusti & Co., are the  pioneers in the establishment of  the silkworm industry, already  giving promise of the attainment  of profitable proporti< ns in this  province. Climatic and food conditions are stated to be all that  could be asked in the district in  which operations have now safely  passed the experimentation stage,  and the silkworms of Trail are  thriving famously. Premier McBride'* Christmas present from the  pioneers of the new provincial industry will probably find a place  in the botanical museum of the  department of agriculture, where  it is certain to attract wide and  appreciative interest.
