 Uttotb  **" Victor**- BA>  VOL X.  NO. 42  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY. SEPTEMBER 5, 1918.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Water and Light  Rates to Oo Up  Increase of 12! per cent' *?ro*  vided for in New Bylaws  Dean Klinck Will Speak  at Fall Fair Opening  A raise in the ralea (or water,  light, and scavenging service will  reault from by-laws introduced by  the. council at Tuesday'a .meeting.  Increased running expenses due to  the raise in wages waa given aathe  immediate reaaon for the higher  charges. The increase is to be  applied indirectly by reducing the  discount allowed (or prompt payment of rates (rom thirty three and  one third to 25 per cent In effect  this means a difference o( I2J per  cent, increaae in the net payment.  In other words the householder who  formerly paid a net rate of say $4  will have to pay $4.50 in future.  The police report (or the month  ahowed a total of 19 cases (including 16 breaches of motor traffic  regulationa and 3 juvenile house  breakers) and fines collected  amounting to $ 150.  The milk aample tests were as  follows: D. C. Middleton, 4 per  cent.; Norman Day, 3.8 ; John  Birch, 3.8.  Aid Rattenbury raised an inter-  eating question regarding the property (ailing to the city through the  tax sales. He doubted the advisability of giving tp the original j  owners so much privilege in the  matter of redemption. At present  the policy was that where a lot had  (alien to the city through non-pay.  ment of taxes and the redemption  period of one year had expired  allowing title to (all to the city, if  an offer were received (or the  property, the original owner waa  given the firat chance to purchase  it. He waa inclined to believe that  thia policy really defeated the  purpose for which the tax sale was  held, as delinquents did not bother  ���bout redeeming their property,  knowing well that they would be  notified if an offer was made to  the city for it and the chance given  them to purchase it. This policy,  he believed, also had the effect of  preventing offers being made for  auch property by prospective purchasers.  After some discussion it waa  decided that after the legal redemption period of one year had  expired, original ownera be given  no preference of any kind and  that the firat satisfactory offer be  accepted.  - Aid. Knowles suggested that a  curfew by-law to correct the evil  of voung boya roaming the atreets  at night would be a good thing to  introduce in Kelowna, but although  the matter was discussed for some  time no action waa taken.  Authority waa given to instal a  telephone in the'house of the fire  truck driver, F.'Gore.  Death of Glen Rosa  Resident  Robt. McKellar, a former resident of Glen Rosa, Weatbank,  passed away Sunday fast at the  Kelowna hospital, He wrs admitted several weeks ago suffering  from acute anaemia, which ultimately caused his death. The  funeral took place Tuesday at the  Kelowna cemetery. Deceased was  an unmarried man, 53 years ot  age, and was born at Lobo, Ont.  He waa a brother of Mrs. H.  Oliver, also at one time a resident  of Westbank, but now in California.  Mr. and Mrs. Longfellow and  baby are visiting this week from  Vancouver.  Dr. C. A. Arnott, of Salmon Arm  and formerly of Kelowna, waa in  town Tuesday.  A. E. Ashcroft of Vernon was a  visitor Monday returning by car  Tuesday.  J. P. Rosenbaum, of Vancouver,  has purchased several carloada of  cattle in town this week.  Lloyd Day, who, representing  the Kelowna High School, was  down to the Vancouver Exhibition  as guest of the management, had  the further good fortune to carry  off the prize for the cattle judging  contest.  Dean Klinck of the University  of B.C., and the foremost agricultural authority in the province, will  be one of the principal speakers  at the opening of the Fall Fair  next Wednesday evening. Mr,  J. W. Jones, M.L.A. and Mayot  Sutherland will also be amongat  the speakers. By that time it is  expected to have all the judging  completed and the exhibition will  be open to the public.  Intending exhibitors are again  reminded of the importance of  making early entries, and also of  entering in every possible claas in  order to ensure a auccessful fair.  It ia anticipated that there will be  considerable competition from out-  aide points in some classes, and  every effort should be made to  keep the prizea at home.

Allies* Successes Are  Increasing Every Day  Loss of Famous Switch Line i*  Disaster for Germans  Rutland News  to  (From oar earn eorresnowSsat).  Miss  Olive  Gray  returned  Vancouver on Monday.  The Rev. Gordon Tanner paid  a flying visit to Rutland on Wednesday.  Miss Bruce, (rom Victoris, the  new teacher (or the intermediate  classes haa taken ovei her new  charge and is staying with Mrs.  Plowman.  Mrs. Locke had ��� narrow escape  from what might have been a very  serious accident. While holding  the horses which moved off suddenly, she was thrown down under the wagon and austained a  bad shaking and bruised ankle.  Mr. and Mrs. Treadgold, snr.,  left this week to take up their residence at the coaat. after having  sold their home here.  Listed among the wounded this  week was Capt. Douglas Cameron,  of Kelowna, His wound is in the  leg. Another wounded Kelowna  man waa Harvej Nainsmith, a atep  son of Mr. T. G. Speer.  .  Mr. Boucher, owner of the " big  show" which is to (orm part of the  Fall Fair attractions, arrived to-day.  His outfit of merry-go-rounds, fer-  ris wheel and other shows are  already on the way here from  Cranbrook a little ahead of time  owing to transportation difficulties.  The Germans have abandoned  the famous Drocourt-Queant switch  line to the British. Queant at tht  line'a southern extremity and Lens;  (urther north have both been captured. These are the outstanding  developments of the great west'  (ront battle. General Haig's an,  nouncement says the Canadians  stormed the switch line. He also  announced that the British had?  entered Pronville, Doigniea and  Bortincourt, taking ten thousand  prisoners in that vicinity.  The evacuation of the Drocourt-  Queant line placed General Haig  in possession of positions regarded  by Hindenburg aa the most important on this front. This line -is  considered by many as the hpld-  ing point on the whole Getman  west from. It was prepared by j  Hindenburg in the year 1917 aa  protection against any allied advance from the Arras region, along'  two great highways towards Cambrai and Douai.  The break in the Hindenburg  line above Queant exceeds seven  miles extending beyond Etaing to  the north.  Coucy-le-Chateau ia being out2  flanked by the Franco-Americans,  south of the AiTette. Prisoners declare the Germana are preparing  for a general retreat to St. Quentin.  Franco-Americans are progressing  along the road towards Laon.  Former Kelowna Mao  Coast  Riding Gasoline Speeder when  Train Struck Him  Attempt on Life of  Premier Lenine  Nikolai Lenine, the Bolsheviki  premier, was shot twice by an assassin last Friday night at Moscow.  He was Wounded in two places.  The shooting occurred at the close  of an audience granted by the  premier to two women social re  volutionists who came to discuss  the embargo on the shipment of  foodstuffs into Moscow. One of  the women, it is said, drew a revolver and opened fire on the premier. Lenine's assailant has been  arrested.  After escsping all the perils of  war, John Jardine, a former Kelowna resident and a returned soldier, was killed last Wedneaday at  Squamiah, B.C., while tiding a gasoline speeder in the yards of the  P.G.E. It was while rounding a  curve near the yards where he  was employed that he was run  into by a fast train and killed in  stantly��� as one witness at the  inquest expressed it: "never knowing what hit him." ���  The superintendent testified that  he helped Jardine to get the speeder on the track and the last thing  he said to him was: "Lookout  Jack, around those curves; you  might run against something," and  Jardine's reply was: " I have been  around there hundreds of timer ; I  know those curves."  Jardine, who is a son-in-law of  Mr. John Laidlaw, of Kelowna,  leaves a wife and two children,  who are to arrive in Kelowna thia  week.  The funeral was held Saturday  with full military honors the Great  War Veterans' Association having  charge of the proceedings.  Handbook for Dairymen  The South African Government  is drafting regulationa to prevent  the use of the German language in  public places.  The Food Service most urgent  at the present moment is sugar  saving and the Food Board appeals  to every loyal Canadian to do  everything possible to reduce his  or her personal consumption of  sugar and to encourage similar  conservation by others. This is  absolutely necessary in order that  our available supply of sugar be  stretched until the new crop becomes available and that it be  equitably distributed, with due  consideration to the moat important uaes.  The British have recaptured large  dumps of ammunition which they  left behind last spring and which  the Germsns had not touched.  They also have taken immense  stores of German material. The  Britiah ammunition came in very  handy and saved a lot of transport,  it offered bullets and shells when  they were needed. Large engineer dumps, which are most useful  in clearing the battle field in the  wake of the advancing armies, also  have been captured.  Free ferry service acroas the  Fraser River on the lower mainland  ia maintained bv the provincial  government, According to a recent newapaper statement these  ferries carry an average of fourteen  cara each trip. The ferry between  Mission and Matsqui makes sixteen  round trips daily, that between  Ladner and Woodward six round  trips, and between Rosedale and  Agassiz five round trips are made.  These ferries give connection between the north and aouth bank of  the Fraser, presumably where it is  impracticable to build bridges, or  where it is more practicable to  operate ferries than to  bridges.  Report No. 1.0 of" the.Canadian  Record of Performance for .Pure-  Bred Dairy Cattle constitutes a  handbook that dairymen can hardly do without. It contains the rules  and regulations governing the records of performance; the standards for registration ; the records  of performance of all pure-bred  dairy cattle in the country > convenient summaries of reports,  'exacV details of the records achieved, and the addresses of the owners ; a record of the cows that  have produced sufficient milk and  fat to qualify but' have failed to  freshen within fifteen months after  the commencement of the test; a  list of bulla open to registration  and an index to owners. The  whole forms a valuable and concise book of dairy records that  can be had free on application to  the Publications Branch, Department of Agriculture, Ottawa.  Reduce Pheasant Season  to Three Days  The question of the shooting  season for pheasants in this district is not yet ended, it seems, (or  in a telegram received laat night  by Mr L. V. Rogers from the  deputy attorney general, it was  stated that a recommendation was  being msde to the executive council to reduce the open season in  South Okanagan from eight days  to three (commencing October 26)  and the bag limit Irom six to three  cock birds only.  Following the desire of several  local sportsmen Mr. Rogers had  written not only the deputy attorney general, but the chairman of  the game commission snd the  chief game warden, urging greater  protection for pheassnts in this  district.  Bronze Medals Given  For Work on Farms  S.O.S. Boyt -Did Their Bit"  During Summer Holidays  New Regulation Dealing  with Sugar Scarcity  The open-air concert which was  to have been given by the City  Band Friday evening in the park,  haa been postponed indefinitely  owing to the fact that aeveral of  the members are too busy in the  packing sheds to be present.  Canada's expeditionary forces  for Siberia will be mobilized in  Vancouver or Victoria. It is hardly  probable that the forces will be  ready to sail much before the end  of the year.  The Okanagan United Growera  state that thejr turnover thia yesr  will be by far the largest in the  history of the organization, and  other shipping concerns teil the  same story.  Mount Kemmel, the famous  stronghold southwest of Ypres,  which was the scene of terrific  fighting during the German offensive in Flanders Iste in April, hss  been captured by the British.  A despstch from Berne to ihe  Matin quotes a prominent Swiss  citizen coming from Germam as  declaring that a formidable disillusion has swept over Germany.  If the military situation does not  improve, the informant said trouble  that may surpass the acts of the  Bolsheviki in Russia menaces the  German Empire.  A transatlantic flight in an airplane guided by a Britiah and  American pilot, is not only a possibility but a probability this year.  Within a week deciaions will be  reached as to whether an attempt  will be made in 1918. A Handley-  Page machine, driven by four engines, will be used. It is figured  that a trip from Ireland to America  can be made in twenty hours. The  ,��� .���. distance is approximately nineteen-  erect hundred miles--just a little more  I than a round trip to Berlin.  Following a series of conferences held in Ottawa in which bis-  buit and candymakers and others  using large quantities of sugsr for  manufacturing purposes, Food  Controller H. B. Thompson has  just issued a new order governing  the use of sugar until conditions  have been sufficiently righted to  allow moderation. The recent  four months' restriction effective  in May, expired on the last day of  August. The new .restrictions,  which are much more drastic than  formerly, will affect all users of  sugar in manufacturing. That portion of the public which patronizes the restaurants will find a  considerable shortening in their  supply at meals.  While a request haa already  been made asking Canadiana to  use but one and a half pounda per  person per month, restaurant proprietors are obliged to confine  their allotments to two pounds per  person for 90 meals. This regulation is now effective, and after  Sept.' 30 ice cream parlors and  aoda fountains may not use more  than 25 per cent, of their average  monthly requirements during the  year 1917. Up till the end of  August this restriction had been  50 per cent, of the 1917 allowance.  The Food Board are confident  that with care the sugsr situation  will be considerably improved in  a short time aa was the case with  ham and bacon.  New Agent-General  Visits Interior  Mr. F. W. Peters, general superintendent for the C.P.R., and Mr.  F. C. Wade, the newly-appointed  agent-general in London for the  province have returned to the coaat  after a trip over CP.R. linea in the  Okanagan and Kootenay districts.  Mr. Peters went to the Upper  Country on an inapection tour of  C.P.R. interests, while Mr. Wade  took the opportunity presented as  the guest of Mr. Peters to farniliar-  ize himself with conditions in this  section of the province in preparation for his work in London.  Speaking of the fruit crop of the  Okanagan, Mr. Peters ssid that the  C. P. R. .had shipped 300 more  cars of fruit slready this seaaon  than at this time lsst year. While  the crop had suffered in places  from frosts, the probability was  that about the same quantity of  fruit would be shipped as in 1917  and at very much better prices.  Mrs. E. Weddell returned to-dity  from the coast.  Arrangements are being completed by the ministry of information under Lord Beaverbrook'a  direction, (or an approaching tour  of Canada by the Right Rev. Dr.  Henry Ruasell Wakefield, Bishop  of Birmingham, and one of the  most enlightened and progreasive  church prelatea. Bearing the highest credentials, he will address  Canadian clubs throughout the  Dominion, alao large public meetings, on Britain's part in the war.  Of the twenty-four Kelowna  boys who enlisted in the S.O.S.  movement and "did their bit" by  working out on the land during  their summer holidays, thirteen  were presented Saturday evening  with the bronze badges issued by  the government as a recognition  of their patriotic endeavor. These  were Chas. Gaddes, Lloyd Day,  Terence Crowley, Bert Davis, Carl  McKenzie, Claire Rowcliffe, Geo.  Clement, Gilbert Clarke, Dick  Parkinson, Graham Evans, Dan  McMillan, Frank Guest and Wm.  Price. The reat of the boys were  unable to be present and will receive their badges later. An En-  derby boy, A. Antilla, was also  present at the meeting and received his badge.  In the absence of the Mayoi,  the meeting, which was held in  the Methodist church, was presided over hy Mr. L V. Rogers, who  in a brief address outlined the  work the boys had done and the  excellent spirit in which they had  carried out the objects of the  movement. He hoped, however,  that the enthusiasm of the boys  would not lead them to neglect  their studies, as a thorough education was the foundation of their  future usefulness.  Mr. A. H. Sovereign, one of the  principal organizers of the movement in Canada spoke in an encouraging way to the boys. The  youth of Canada had taken no mean  share in the production of thia  year'a harvest, and while the badgea  they were receiving were not of  much intrinsic value, the receivers  would alwaya treasure them with  pride as an indication that while  they were too y oung-to go, aa their  brothers and fathers had, to fight  for the Empire, they had done  what they were able to do on the  farms.  Mr. J. W. Jones, M.L.A., who  was called upon to address the  gathering, briefly outlined the situation which had started the movement���the shortage of men in Canada and the shortage of food in  Europe. The call (or greater food  production had been made to the  boys in the absence of their elders  and they responded in a splendid  manner. He felt sure that their  work had not only aided the Allies  at a critical time, but the boys themselves would reap great benefit  from the knowledge and experience gained.  The Rev. C. M. vVright, supervisor of the S.O.S. movement in  Alberts and British Columbia, also  spoke, giving some interesting  figures showing the unexpected  enthusiasm whieh had been displayed. Almost as many boys had  joined ia B.C alone aa waa expected in all the four western provinces.  This was a very gratifying result oi  the campaign. He believed that  not only had the work been good  (or the boya, but the influence on  the farmers had been good, making  them feel tbe reality of the war  snd put forward greater efforts  than they would otherwise have  done.  In addition to being supervisor  of the S.O.S. movement, Mr.  Wright was also in charge of the  "Earn and Cive" scheme in connection with the recent Y.M.CA.  campaign for funds, whereby  schoolboys had pledged themselves to earn a sum of $10 for the  benefit of the fund. Sixteen local  boys had given the pledge and so  far six had completed the contract  entitling them to receive the certificate. These certificates were presented to Leonard Gaddea. Carl  McKenzie, Hugh McKenzie, Claire  Rowcliffe, Gilbert Clarke and Bert  Davis.  During the evening solos were  given bv Mrs. Ambler and Mrs.  Braden.  Miss L. Evans left (or the coast  to-day.  A motor party consisting of Mr.  and Mrs, R. J. Armstrong and Mr.  and Mra. E. L. Smith and aon, of  Chopaka, came from the north by  auto. Monday continuing their  journey south the following day.

Laat apt ing there was some  mention "1 organizing a local troop  ol Gill Guides, and if auch a troop  is to be stalled what is first requited is that a few of the mothers and other ladies interested  hold an organization ��� meeting. A  mistake winch :a sometimes made  with Girl Guides is that they endeavor too much to be Boy Scouts  which is not the idea of the movement at all.  Quoting from a little pamphlet  we have, issued by the Dominion  Council of the Canadian Girl  Guides, dealing with the aims aud  ideals of the   organization, it say.*:  The Gill Guide movement was  founded by Mias Agues Baden-  Powell, sister of Lieut. Gen. Sir  Kobeit Baden Powell, for the purpose of mak in y girls useful and  aelf-iehant and ol developing those  quahtit s of character which make  good women and good citizens.  It is a purely womanly scheme  and the aim oi the pursu.ts engaged in is to make girls better houae-  keepers,more capable in womanly  aits, from cooking, washing and  sick-nursing, to thc training and  management of children. Girls  ate encouraged in every way to  study the most useful subjects a  wom&n can know in order that  iliey may become ' better mothers  anp guides to the nexl generation,'  i he method of haining is to give  die girla pursuits which appeal to  theni, such as games and recreative exercises, which lend them on  to learn for themselves many useful crafts.  Any girl over the age of I I, who  is earnestly desirous of doing right  and who is anxious for self improvement, can become a Girl  Guide upon presenting a letter of  consent from her parents or guardian,"  NEW SHOES  For the Fair  Next rV6eb is P'air wee! . \lvciyliociy  will be ciecked out ��pii k and span.

B.C. produceia  should co-operate in a campaign  11 inform the prairie housewives  on lhe peak of the season of each,  especially in a year like this when  u e are nffeiing our fruitstwo weeks  ahead ot our usual season.  Saskatoon is brisk but would be  imprbved by taking a leaf tint of  Edmonton's book re advertising.  Some very fine crabapples arrived  there from Okanagan Centr ���.  I here were some fine Duchess No.  I and No. 2 in the car and tlie'  shipment was rrported asthe finest  to arrive in Saskatoon this year.  Calgary has had a belter week  than usual. The arrivals have been  ample and fair trade has resulted.  Prices are similar to last week.  Some lather green Wealthy apples  are on sale but no good quality  apples have arrived in sufficient  quantity lo test their selling p��r,wer.

Consumption of fruit is being  retarded, first by the high cost of  the necessaries of life, and secondly by constantly changing sugar  restrictions. There is no apparent  scarcely of mom y and the former  condition could be helped by a  little w ll-placed advertising but  the latter in view of the abundance  nf candy made and offered for sale  would stand a little more explainig  by the Food Control Board.  Uniil the meaning of recent re.  cent restrictions is better understood, and we confess that we are  at a loss to undeistand them, we  would advise growers and shippers  lo sell several blocks of their produce nt the opening prices, instead  of holding loo long for an advance.  Prospects for good prices never  were better but they should not be  spoiled by holding on. The best  matket is the one that is constantly fed ; besides sugar restrictions  and uneven supply can reduce the  brightest   prospect   to   a  panicky  Car for Hire  Gibson's Garage - Phone 232  23ll  BL'RNE & WEDDELL  Barrister,  Solicitors and  Notaries Public,  E. 0.

Already several  cancellations* of cars of fruit sold,  mostly crabapples, are reported  because it is feared that the new  sugar restrictions will injure their  sale. 1 here is little use recommending to housewives that fruit can be  canned without sugar as they well  know that sugar will be needed  eventually and no promise of a  plentiful supply in the near future  has been made. However, a great  saving of sugar can be made in  canning or bottling fruits in thin  syrup and this propaganda, in our  opinion, should have been more  advertised bv the powers that be,  previous to endorsing restrictions  as drastic aa those we are now confronted with.  We think a general modification  of the restriction should be made  where it interferes with the sale  nnd preserving of fruit, at least until candy making and other dainties  are further restricted.  We have no doubt that conservation of .si-gar is necessary but  whv revoke the policy ol encouraging the use of fruit as a substitute  for butterfatp.  There are some strange things  happening here on the tomato  market, and we are at a loss to  know the why and wherefore of  them.  We notice a mixture of green  and ripe toms in the same box.  vV11at is in the mind of the packer  when he does this? Again the  Idler " R" is stamped on toms that  are wholly green. When ripe  toms come here they are usually  wrapped. Why is this? Wrapping hastens ripening and also  decay. Wrapping tomatoes is a  wasteful practice, in our opinion,  and B.C. haa a monopoly on the  practice as far as we know.  There has been gross carelessness exhibited in many cases of  packing tomatoes for this market,  and this has been a regrettable  factor both to the buyer and also  to the seller.  Cucumbers are coming in unlimited supply and are a drug on  the market. Good boxes are filled  with cukes of all sizes, some pick-  lers, and from that to yellows.  Good, well graded stuff that ahould  be sent here is unfortunately only  being sent by a few.  In both tomatoes anil cucumbers  it will pay B.C. growers to get  down to careful selection, and  either send pickling stuff marked  as such or fancy table stuff Both  will sell on their merits separately  but mixing all kinds in a mess will  not produce satisfactory returns.

At least one billion dollars will  be raised- in Canada during the  present fiscal year from extra war  taxation.  A Los Angeles young woman  invited a thousand friends to her  wedding, rented a big hall, and  charged fifty cents admission, and  gave the proceeds to the Red  X.  A restaurant yi Princeton a few  days ago paid a local grocery concern 60 cents for one tomato.  This particular tomato was a sight  to behold. It tipped the scales at  one and onequarter pounds, and  at 45c a pound it retailed for the  price mentioned.  WATER NOTICE  Phones 217 and 216  STORAGE  TAKE NOTICE that I, David E.

An old tree which for years has  stood at the edge of the sidewalk  close by the aquatic building fell  during the high wind which prevailed over the week-end. The  singular part about it is the manner in which it dropped, having  missed all the men's dressing cubicles and reposed in the narrow  pathway between them. Two  inches more on either side would  have resulted in destruction of  the dressing rooms. It would  have been a fatal minute for anyone standing in the passage-way  as so many do when dressing.  The top of another one fell behind  the pavilion, breaking down the  telephone wires but fortunatelv  missing the building.

In  their three meetings they have done  most excellent work, having sent  in a generous supply of n.uch  needed stretcher caps and person'  al property bags. They are also  making red ties for the day shirts,  which the league has been unable  to finance for-aome time. The  marking on the pockets of the day  shirts, "Kelowna" is another "bit'  they have undertaken.  Haiti at War With  Germany  The declaration of war against  Germany by the Republic of Haiti  brings the total number of bellig  ent powers���counting in Russia  and Roumania���to twenty-five,  exactly one-half of the world's total  of fifty sovereign states. But far  more than one half of the world's  population���which is estimated at  1,60,0,000,000--is in a state of  war, as altogether the belligerent  peoples aggregate approximate  1,200,000,000 or 75 per cent of  the total.  More than one-half of the land  area of the globe is involved in the  war���some 30,000,000 square miles  out of a total of 55,500,000 square  miles, but only about one million  square miles is actually in the fighting zones, and the greater part of  this battle area lies in the near east  and the territory of the Ottoman  Empire. So far as there are reliable figures five per cent of the  peoples at war are under arms, the  percentages ranging from 0.02 in  the case of Liberia to 10 in the  case of Germany, which has made  by far the heaviest call on its male  population.  Indian soldiers in France last  year had 14,278 bottles of hair oil  from the Indian Soldier's Fund.  Prisoners taken by the Allies  since July I totalled more than  112,000, while 1,300 guns of heavy  calibre���field pieces and larger���  were captured. Captures reported  by the British and French since  then have averaged more than  3,000 a day. This represents a  loss to the enemy of four complete  divisions.  G. W.
