ABOUT OURSELVES  We are not at all (ond of talking  about ourselves and we do sn in  this instance somewhat reluctantly.  It has been brought to our notice  more than once lately that there  are some mistaken notions abroad  respecting the ownership and control of the Kelowna Record. No  doubt some insinuations which  have been made on the public  platform lately have given rise to  these ideus, and perhaps all the  more because we allowed them to  pass unnoticed.  It might be as well, therefore,  for us to make a few statements of  our own which will leave no room  for doubt.  In the first place, then, the Kelowna Record is not and never was  owned by any company or group  of individuals, the sole ownership  and management being in John  Leathley, to whom1, therefore, all  its shortcomings must be directly  attributed.  No other individual locally or in  the wide world than the aforesaid  John Leathley has one five-cent  piece invested in the Kelowna Record.  No political party, Conservative  or Liberal, has any voice or influence in the policy or management  of the Kelowna Record, and never,  on any occasion, has the Kelowna  Record received any money or the  loan of any money from any party  or individual as payment or inducement for political support���neither  directly through the front door  nor left quietly on the back slept  ���and no undue patronage fur ther  than in the ordinary way of business has been given to the Kelowna  Record for any such purpose.  These are plain statements and  we want it to be perfectly clear  that there is no catch or joker in  any of them.  In short, there are no strings on  the Record of any kind, and we are  perfectly at liberty at any time to  give support or not to any movement or political candidate as our  judgment dictates without interference from any quarter.  The above are matters of fact  but there are still some matters of  opinion, especially in connection  with the present political contest,  which we would like to mention.  Although many people have  fallen into the habit of regarding  the Record as a Conservative  paper yet it is a fact that we have  never in our columns claimed direct allegiance to any party. It is  true that we hold the belief and  have freely expressed it, that many  excellent legislative measures which  have been before the provincial  government during the past year  or two, and especially some which  are included in the present government programme, are deserving of  the support of every intelligent and  fair-minded man. It is also true  that while we believe the present  government's actions and personnel  are open to criticism on many  points, we have not joined in the  Liberal hue-and-cry against the  government, a campaign which we  believe to have been largely insincere and pre mpted in a great  measure by rival political ambitions.  In fact, we believe that the country has had enough .of party politics, and that cleaner, saner, and  more efficient government would  But as a local paper we are concerned more with the affairs of our  own district.  We feel tiiat this district is at  present passing through a crisis in  its development wlu.li makes it  imperatively necessary to put fur.h  every energy and marshall eve.y  available force and intelligence if  we are to make any progress at a  towards becoming a prosperous  community on a more sound and  permanent basis than hitherto.  Iir the selection of a representative for this riding this fact slwulcj  be borne in mind, and the ternp'a  tion to go off into, what to us at  least, are side issues, resisted. Our  representative in the provin'ill  house must be a man who has a  close practical knowledge of our  local affairs, the time and energy  and lovalty to the district to devote  himself to the solution of our problems! and business and financial  experierrce which will enable him  to speak with authority when our  problems are presented to the  government.  We have frankly supported the  candidature of Mayor Jones for the  position of our political representative, not because he is a Conservative but because we believe him to  be the most suitable candidate  available.  We may be right in this or we  may be wrong, but in justification  of our position we might say that  we have been for many years now  thrown into very intimate contact  with most of the undertakings and  movements and problems of the  district and have had therefore a  little more than the ordinary opportunity for observation on which to  base conclusions.  We know of nothing in the past  record of Mayor Jones which  should not give us every confidence  that his well recognized ability and  energy will be given faithfully to  our interests here, as thev have  always been in the past to any  movement for the good of the district. His activities in many lines  of useful public service are too well  known to need further comment  here.  At the same time we have refrained from any harsh criticism of  the Liberal candidate, Mr. L. V.  Rogers, for whom we entertain a  real personal regard and respect,  and for many reasons we regret  that we do not feel justified in  as-  An Island of Bones  BAKING-POWDER!

MARY E. DYKES,  Ron. Sec.  The History of Gasoline  "Henry, dear, tho children ,are needing shoes."  "Needing shoos again. Do*you  think I am made of money? Whew  are the ones [ bought for them just a  few days ago? I suppose you have  given them to some beggar under the  impression that their father's amusement was t6 buy new ones.",  "No, my dear, I havo not givdn  them away. ��� I have put them through  the meat chopper and.will serve them  tomorrow as hash. Co homo early  for dinner, dear."  QftfloUne first compelled public attention in the role of little demon of  the kerosinc or coal-oil lamp. In  this capacity it kept the coroner nnd  thu insurance adjuster working ovor-  timo.  When crude:oil was first discovered  in tho IVnsylvania district the public  received it iisa cure all for disease instead of'as a fuel or as an illuminantj  Then it was discovered that by subjecting it to distillation A 'certain portion of it could be used for lighting  purposes, to supplant candles and  lamps using whale oils and vegetable  oils.  But it was found that a considerable  fraction���about twenty per cent.���of  this oil had so low a boiling point,  was so volatile and explosive, that it  was extremely dangerous in lamps. At  the sign of tho coal-oil lamp of that  pioneer period iires and explosions  were the prevailing programme.  It was soon seen by the refiners that  if kerosine wns to become popular as  an illuminant, the "light boiling fraction" must bo taken off tlie top and  disposed of in some other way. For  a considerable time it was turned into  the nearest streams and allowed to  dispose of (itself by evaporation; but  experienco proved that this wns a decidedly dangerous method of disposal.  The refiners wero forced to recognised  the urgency of the fact that someway  they must find a egitimate commercial outlet for this volatilo lluid.vhich  was so explosive that it could not be  dumped without great peril to life and  property.  Under the pressure of this economic  necessity, about 1875, a man named  Hull, who was in touch with the-  Cleveland rofineries, iuvented a vapor  stove which was the father of thc gas-  olino stove of today. For a time this  furnished a very considerable outlet.  A considerable quantity of gasoline  wns also consumed nt this period in  street lamps and out-of-door lighting  systems.  About 1903 tho motor car with its  internal combustion engine, appeared  on the scone���just in time to rescue  gasoline consumption from a decided  setback, due to the fact that gaa had  come into general use for lighting purposes, nnd was able, on account of its  greater cheapness and safety, to push  gasoline out of competition to a great  extent.  "Gasoline has. in short, pushed King  Kerosine from tin* throne. The Out*  cast, tho infant terror of the oil industry, has now become the czar of  the whole empire of petroleum commerce, and there are few who do not  pause at the sign of the garage pump  to pay him tribute.���Forrest Crisscy  in the Satin-day Evening Post.

Leggatt  of the Royal Flying Corps, who recently with the help of another airman  brought down two German aeroplanes  for which deed he received the Military  Cross, was the < Scout Master who  started the present Kelowna troop of  Boy Scouts. <  In 1912 Scout Master Leggatt started a small troop of Boy Scouts in  Kelowna. The troop started with  two Patrols, the Wolf and the Otter.  The two Patrol headers were F. Buok  and A. DuMoulin, and the two Corporals wero R. Keller and H. Burne.  The little troop had its head-quarters  in a good-sized tent in a field behind  the residonce of Mr. DuMoulin. Here  they were instructed and examined by  Scout Master Leggatt, who gave the  troop such a start that it never onoe  slipped back, and it has now grown to  bo ��� the third best troop in the province of British Columbia.  At the out-break of the war Mr. E.  W. LeggaU left Kelowna with the  102nd R. M, R.'s. He transferred  from thero and joined the Royal Flying Corps, where he has certainly done  his bit for the Empire. He is also  the first Kelowna man to gain such a  distinction.  Recent testB have been the ^"Pathfinder" by Patrol Leader A. DuMoulin  und Scout A. DuMoulin, before Mr.  Groves on tho 20th of April last.  This test has to be passed annually.  Patrol Leader .J. Calder and Scout L.  Gaddes passed their Cooking test for  first and socond class badges respectively, on Saturday, April 29th. Scout.  T. Taylor passed his Signalling test  for th�� lirst-claBs badge on Monday,  the 22nd of April, boforo Sergeant  Chaplin. We wish to thank the examiners very much for their interest and  trouble.  We had hoped to hold our concert  during the week of May 24th, but we  find it impossible to obtain the Opera  House on any of the evenings of that  wook, except Monday, which is a- little  too early for us. We shall therefore  have to have the concert a little later  aud cither Wednesday the 31st of May,  or Thursday,: the 1st of June, will, we  oxpect, be tho date. Further announcements will appear later. We have  been fortunate in being able to make  arrangements for a piano with Mrs.R.  Lambly, and in obtaining the services  of MrH. I'alder and Mi's. Gilchrist to  instruct the troop in singing and in a  marching drill for the concert.  One day last week a small hoy named Varney, while throwing stones Into  the lake, slipped and fell in. The  water was ovor hiB hoad and he would  probab.y have drowned had not another young *boy named Wilson courageously waded into the lake up to his  neck and rescued the ohild. This  was n real "good turn" and we hope  that ns soon as younc Wilson is old  enough he will join tho troop, as he  has already shown what he \�� made  of.

Spring Prospects of  the European War  (By Lovat Fraser, in the 'Daily Mail')  Spring is hero and the war iB waking up.  It haB not boen slumbering on the  Verdun' front, nor in Armenia, nor on  tho Tigris, these many weeks. The  approach of the thaw in Russia sees  great armies wrestling for new positions in tho north and in Galicia. But  everywhere there aro now signs of  freah movements,_and we are perhapB  about to enter upon the greatest  struggle of the war.  Early last winter I cherished a secret belief that 4he .war might begin to  end noxt .Inly, and actually finish  about tho ond of October. I do not  think so now, for it is clearer than  ever that unless Prussia is invaded  and the Prussians are boaton to thoir  knees, this war in somo form or other  will always bo with us. We had better get on with the war and not think  too much about when it will end.  The battle of Verdun continues to  rage intermittently, but there seems  little doubt about its issue. The Ger-  mnns have done oxaotly what they  were permitted to do, and no more.  They have not won an inch of ground  which the Fronch were not willing to  yield in pursuance of their definite  policy. Tho enemy have organized  against the Verdun front tho most  formidable attack yot witnessed in the  war, ond they have utterly failed to  achieve their purpose. They thus begin the spring with a deep consciousness of discomfiture, which has spread  to their civil population.  We are now entitled to draw from  Verdun A further proof that the western front is probably impregnable, at  any rate for the present. The lesson  is ono which may be found to cut both  ways, until the German numbers are  very much diminished. More than  that it would be unsafe to say, although a shrowd commentator has  pointed out that the western front is  tending to develops a series of rather  ragged salients. The conviction remains as strong as ever that whatever may happen in other theatres,  the war on land will be decided in the  wc&t^jd|herever the Germans lay go  in the^rJeverish search for a decision,  always they must return to the calm  and solid array of troops confronting  them in France and Flanders.  After Verdun the next prominent  factor in the situation is tho internal  condition of Germany. Personally I  have never been much impressed by the  stress laid upon Germany's weakening  financial position. She is contracting  huge liabilities among her misguided  people which sho will probably be unable to meet, and will perhaps eventually be compelled to repudiate; but  shortage of cash is not likely to i affect her attitude for a very long time  to come. The shortage of certain  kinds of food, as well aB of certain  materials needed for her staple industries, is of more immediate importance  and its effect grows steadily less obscure. One who knows more about  Germany's internal condition than  most people said to me: "H we could  only take the lid off Germanyy the  world would be astonished."  Yet we must not count too much  upon Germany's desperate straits.  The Hohenzollerns and military caste  have staked their,all upon the war.  Their baok id to the wall, and they  know it. When they admit, total failure, as they must in the end, the  scales should fall from the eyes of the  German people; but that ������ time is a  long way' off. The Emperor and tho  Groat General Staff are still masters  of the situation, and are likely to remain so. Assuredly they still have  the bulk of the people with them.  Romember that this race of cunning  barbarians havo been i preparing for 40  years to seek the mastery of the  world. If they have to eat the soles  off their boots, they will not yield at  the end of twenty months.  Having once more thrust vainly in  the west, the German military authorities apparently propose to strike at  Russia, Report credits them with  contemplating a movo against Riga  and Petrograd, and this time report  is probably correct. They will havo  to operato in a very difficult country,  especially if they reach the region of  tho Pskov lakes, and they will attaok  under very different conditions from  those obtaining when von Mackensen  began his; inarch aoross Galicia last  year. Two unfavorable factors  should affect them. The first is the  recuperation of Russia, who has recovered her balance and has new well-  munitioned armies in the field. Russia  will not again bo caught unaware as  she was last spring. 'Already she has  begun a preliminary activity, and ia  ondoavoring with considerable success  to regaiil control -of the important  railway line from Vilna to Hvinsk.  She is also preesiug tho Austrians in  eastern Galicia, and is preparing to  wage a campaign on her southern  front which will be largely independent   of   the   struggle in tho nor thorn  jBfflafsasa  roduction aadThr  CANADA'S CALL   .
