 i' t�� ^r^o��wOvf��y  VOL. IX.   NO. 22.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 1917.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Monday Meeting of  City Council  Citizens Asked to Care For  Trees in Front of Property  Monday morning's meeting of  the city council was a brief one  there being little business of importance to transact.  Mr. W. A. Fuller attended in  reference to his property on Park  * Avenue. This had some time ago  been subdivided into twelve lots,  but although the plan- had been  passed by the council it had never  been registered, and he requested  that the plan be cancelled and the  property reassessed as acreage.  It was pointed out that the plan  had provided for a street through  the property, and while the council would agree to reassess the  land as acreage, the poition reserved (or the Street'must be retained  by the city in order to keep faith  wilh the corners of adjoining subdivisions, which had been laid out  on the understanding that such a  street would be made.  Mr. Fuller, however, did not see  it in that way. He claimed that hr  had given thirty-live feet from his  property on condition that the  council put the street through at  once. They had failed to do this  and in consequence he had been  unable lo sell any of the lots. To  leave the street now would be giving that much of his property tor  nolhing. He wanted things put  back to the "status quo ante."  It was suggested, however, that  he had given the portion o( the  street in order to get his plan passed, and that the city had been  under no obligation to complete  the street at once. Other people  were now concerned and it would  be impossible to cancel the street  for that reason. The plan could  only be cancelled on condition  that he give or deed to the city the  ��hirty.five feet.  A letter was read from Mr. S. T-  Elliott regarding a house which he  had rented in the city for use as a  barracks tor the soldiers. There  was still $35 owing for rent and he  further claimed that certain repairs  were necessary to put the house  back into the condition it was in  when they took it.  An application was read from  Douglas Hamilton for a position  as night watchman, and the clerk  waa instructed to inform the Fire  Brigade that the application would  be considered.  A report was made that someone  was in the habit of tethering a  horse in the cemetery grounds,  and it was decided to instruct the  police to make inquiries.  Aid. Rogerson suggested that an  endeavor be made to induce the  public to water and care for the  young trees planted along the  streets, each owner looking after  those planted in front of his property.  Ald.Rattenbury also recommended that a " Cleaning-up Day" be  held again thia yenr.  Mr. Belichamber was a visitor  to Armstrong last weekend.  Mrs. Wm. Rennie was a passenger to the coast Saturday morning.  Miss Mary Ferrier returned this  week after extensive tour which  has included Japan, China and  India.  Mr. J. C. Stockwell and daughter  left Saturday morning for his old  home in Quebec. It is Mr.  Stockwell's intention to spend  aome two or three months in the  east before returning to  Kelowna,  The boys at the front will much  appreciate the gift of $20.25, raised  by the Kelowna Womens' Institute, for their wives and. families.  The local branch of the Canadian  Patriotic Fund, in acknowledging  the gift, thanks the ladies for their  fine example to the' Kelowna stay-  at-homes. There are still some of  us that need such inspiration.  'Seagulls have been placed on  sale on the fcondon market, and  bring 3d. each for roasting. It is  said they make a very dainty dish  for roasting when the proper metli  od_ is iollowed in the cooking.  Women Organizing to Help  in Fruit Picking  At the April meeting of the  Womens' Institute, the matter of  local women co-operating in assisting the farmers of the district  to harvest their crops, was brought  up and discussed. Owing to it  having been brought up near the  close of the meeting it was not as  fully discussed as many would  have liked. A committee, however, was appointed, consisting ol  Mrs. McGregor, Mrs. Brent, Miss  Reekie and Mrs. Ball to receive  the names of any women, or girls  who would volunteer to "do their  bit" in this way.  It seems to be the feeling of a  goodly number of local women,  that the Okanagan women should  not be sitting at home, while our  farmers may have to bring in women from the coast, to help gather  in the crop. It is thought too, that  many are just waiting the opportunity to show their putr otism, by  offering to do what they can o help  in this way. Those ho are desirous of seeing some effort made in  th's direction, who that no women  who is physically able, and not  tied with the care, of little children,  will withold her services because  she does not want the money, nnd  fears to stand in the way of those  who do It seems clearly evident,  that there will be need ol all *ho  can help, and any woman or girl  who does not need the money she  earns in thiB way has ample opportunity to put it to good use in the  Red Cross, Patriotic, Y.M.C.A. or  relief work and so do a double  service.  Obviously two useful purposes  would be served by an organized  band of women workers. It would  insure that nothing grown need be  wasted for want of someoire to  gather it, and also to show the foreign population in pur midst that  they cannot hold up our farmers  for exhorbitant wsges.  The above committee will be  pleased to register the names of  volunteers. Progress will be reported at the next meeting of lhe  Institute, when the matter can be  more fully discussed and definite  plans arranged.  Suggest a Civic       Government Assistance  .

Ian Cameron Gives  Life in Great War  News came through on Saturday  of the death in the recent fighting  of Lieut. Ian Cameron, youngest  son of Mis. W. C. Cameron, of the  Guisachan ranch. The young man,  who has lived in Kelowna practically all his life, would have been:  23 years of age last Sunday. As  his family are amongst the pioneers of the district it ia needless  to say he was well known to everyone around.  He passed through the public  and high schools here and was  well liked by all. While no particulars are given of his death one  thing is certain-that he died doing  his duty bravely. The sympathy  of everyone will be given to Mrs.  Cameron in her loss.  Ian was the second boy to go  overseas, his brother Douglas having accompanied the Strathcona  Horse early in the war. He is now  taking a commission in the same  regiment his younger brother was  in.  *  Lieut. Fred Heather is another  local youqg man to be listed with  the killed. He has been in the  fighting practically ever since the  outbreak of the War, and has been  wounded twice. His bravery earned for him the distinction of the  military cross.  A telegram arrived this morn-  to say that Vic. DeHart had been  wounded.  The United States is working a  plan-to break down the German  submarine blockade and keep the  Allies plentifully supplied with  food and munition, by the building  of several thousands of small  wooden ships to be used as transports.

At the conclusion of the meeting  the Rutland representatives extended a hearty   invitation lo hold  similai convention in their district, and it was decided to do so  at an early dale.  A resolution was passt d urging  the provincial government to  adopt some form of prohibition  during the term of the war." Resolution of thanks were also passed  to the ladies who had provided  the excellent supper and to all  who had contributed to the success  of the conference.

Further, the question is one whioh  has agitated the minds of onion growers in many sections of the continent  at various times.

Mr. Brown, Indian agent, Mr.  Groves, of Summerland, and Mr.  E. Graham, of Kelowna, seemed  to be quite busy in the district  last week.  Mr. McAlpine, road superintendent, was here this week looking  over the roads. He staited Mr.  Steele to grade the roads and do  necessary repairs.  Mr. and Mrs. Williams, of Calgary, have moved on to the Wat-  chorn place which they are going  to work. It is reported they are  growing tomatoes for the cannery  at Peachland.  Mr. Turnbull, of Glenrosa, has  traded hia place here for prairie  property and is going to try his  hand at growing wheat, and with  that at $2.20 per bushel it should  be like Klondyke I  The McCrackens have arrived  and taken up their residence at  Glenrosa and are busy hauling up  their two carloads of effects.

Kerr, of  Kelowna, read at the Easter meeting of the Ontario Education Association. Mis. Kerr has for some  time been taking a great interest j  in the reform of our irrational spelling, and is endeavoring to impress  upon educational bodies the need  of action to remove the present  confusion which is an obstacle to  trade and international intercourse.  The alphabet, Mrs. Kerr points  out, is the greatest of all boons to  humankind. It is like the gift of  some mighty oriental magician, the  invisible cap by which we can see  and hear without being seen, or  the magic horse that could transport its owner thousands of miles  in a moment. But it is more than  this, it is the gift of a people to all  peoples. It is for all. not for a few,  nor for a privileged caste to use  and to conceal from the multitude.  It is the symbol ot the liberty, fraternity and equality of the early  Christians' dreams, and the means  whereby we shall attain these.  We received the alphabet from  Greek hands, whence has come so  much of European culture. But it  originated with an Asian people.  We may well pause to ask what  we have ever done for Asia in return for this transcendent gift of a  phonetic alphabet.  How have we guarded this  priceless treasure ? We have allowed it to fall half into ruins; and  for centuries no voice of warning  was lifted to preserve it. We have  been far more careless with our  alphabet than other European peoples. We have more variations of  sounds but our standards of sound  notation are low. Like the Dutch  we have resorted to a makeshift  of two-letter notation for the vowels  of some hundreds of simple words,  but we have neglected to form  habits of using'even this digraph  makeshift uniformly and intelligently  For our twelve recognized vowel-  sounds we have only five vowel  letters. For Ah (long) " the leader  in all alphabets," heard in the word  " father," we have no mark distin-  quishing it from the much more  frequent ah (short) of the words  pat and that. Eh (long) is denoted  in six different ways���veil, laid,  wake, great, they, stray ���all commonly used ways. The one-stroke  letter, dotted, is the representative  ol ee (long) in the languages of  our neighbours, and we use this  notation in a good many words���  machine, police, caprice, mosquito,  unique and others; but in our  commonest words we have very  conflicting representations of it, by  one monotype and by five different  digraphs, thus-he, cede, leap, feel,  priest, deceive, seize. O (long) is  variously denoted, as in���no, nite,  coat, own, doe���and more reasonably but som- what clumsily as in  the word soul. The U vowels have  suffered even more than others  from slovenly denotation, and we  are losing the fine old sound of  " V " by its being degraded into  U dulled or U slurred, a kind of V  not heard before the middle of the  17th century, according to Dr. A  J.Ellis.  English spelling is a barrier placed at the gate of knowledge which  prevents many from ever becoming truly literate. The precious  school time of all is wasted in  memorizing arbitrary and illogical  spelling, and thia memory work is  actually made the test of education! A complete alphabet and  the intelligent use of it can be  learnt in a few days, as waa proved by the missionary James Evans,  who gave the Cree Indians aa alphabet for their language which  they were able to use in a week,  and some of them mastered it in  one day.  Our best hope lies in the teaching profession. A teacher's charter would insist upon true and  progressive reform of language  notation. Such a charter would  demand the due recognition of the  noblest of all professions by the  granting of degrees. University  powers should never pass into the  hands of those who are ignorant  of the psychology of teaching. The  neglect of the foundations of learning is due to University ignorance  of teaching.  We have an excellent basis to  work from in Sir Isaac Pitman's  and Dr. A. J. Ellis's phonotype  alphabet. Pitman is the father of  phonetic reform and all phonetic  students use, while not always acknowledging, his work. Only a  true phonetic alphabet (one sound,  one letter), on Pitman lines, is fit  for passing on to our great dependency of India. Until wc give  Roman letters for optional use in  the 147 languages of India, we are  responsible for the illiteracy there  of 90 per e��nt, of the men and 99  \f    Orders for  Local  Scouts  tt phepahed"     Kelowna Troop  Troop First; Self Last  Edited by Pioneer. April 17, 1917  Orders by command for week  ending 26th April, 1917.  DUTIES: Orderly patrol for  week Otters; next for duty, Beav-  l,  PARADES: The combined  troop will parade at the club-room  on Wednesday the 25th day of  April at 7.15 p.m, Also on Satua-  day the 28th instant at 2.30 p.m.  At this latter paiade each scout  will bring his billy-can and sufficient grub for his tea, including the  meat and two potatoes for the second class cooking test. A full attendance in imperative.  The time is drawing very near  fci the concert, so in addition to  the above there will very likely be  some special rehearsals for those  taking part in the different items.  There will be the usual competition in selling tickets again this  year, but we shall certainly be  handicapped for lack of an Opera  House. We may also have to put  the concert on for two nights, the  first night for children and the next  night for anyone.    ^  Yet another loss to the troop has  to be recorded, this time in the  patrol leader of the former Beaver  patrol, Ian Weddell. He has gone  to Detroit for the purpose of working and studying under the care of  his uncle who lives there, and the  troop wishes him every success.  He joined the troop in April 1914,  and passed his tenderfoot and sec  ond class tests the same year. He  was the holder of six proficiency  badges and the all round cord  grade "A", so those of us who are  left must get very busy without any  further delay if we are to make  any showing at all in the 1917  census returns up to June next.  The scoutmaster had the oppor  tunity in Vancouver last week of  meeting P.L. Max Donaldson of  Dawson troop, Vancouver, who is  in charge of the scouts who meet  the returning soldiers whenever  they arrive in Vancouver. They  arrive at all times too, and one day,  or night rather, this patrol leader  and some other scouts had to curl  up in their blapkets at the station  and sleep there, waiting for the  train which was away behind time.  These scouts are doing a splendid  work in meeting our returned  wounded soldiers in this way, and  their help is always accepted, used,  and much appreciated. The  scouts all over B. C. owe P.L.  Donaldson and his willing helpers  a debt of gratitude for the good  name they are giving scouts by  this kind work of theirs.  Scoutmaster R. Thomas, whose  address is 2344 Burns Street, Vancouver, would be very glad to  hear from any members ot the  troop who could write to him. He  is now at school studying wireless  telegraphy.  Scoutmaster Keown is trying to  break all records in reaching Berlin, and at this moment is probably  on his wsv across the Atlantic to  England. He was only at the  coast about two weeks altogether  after leaving here, when he left for  Ottawa, and as we said he is now  one step nearer again to his goal.  We quoted from the little pamphlet last week "How to run a patrol," a copy of which waa given to  each leader. Seconds will please  read the same as well, and we  trust the leaders now have the  whole pamphlet off by heart.  per cent, of the women. When  we fulfil this duty���and we deserve to lose our empire if we do  not���we shall ourselves learn what  a phonetic alphabet means.  Dr. MATHISON  Dentist  KELOWNA   ::   B.C.  J.-M.

The ifront part of the  block is to be one story, while the  site of the former Opera House  will go up two storeys, the upper  floor being reserved for the new  Masonic hall.  The Red Cross dance at the  new school on Thursday evening  last proved a success in every way.  Great credit is due the organizing  committees for the manner in  which arrangements for enjoyment  and comfort were made, and  above all to the ladies for the sumptuous supper they provided. No  small debt of gratitude is due to  Messrs Boyd, Pryce and Oswald  Jones for their excellent music, also  to Mrs. Leigh and Mr. Hopkins for  stepping into the breach and keepering the music going after the  "orchestra" left. The substantial  sum of $75 was realized after all  expenses were paid, and the local  branch of the Red Cross Society  wishes to take this opportunity of  sincerely thanking all who so generously and ably contributed to  provide such an enjoyable and  successful evening.

That this iB a very necessary orop insurance is proved by the fact that each  year Canada loses many hundreds of  thousands of dollars by the cutworm,  whieh could almoBt aU be prevented.  It is not only the loss of seed, bnt the  loss of time in resowing the land and  the resultant reduced tonnage harvested (by reason of the shorter growing season) which counts.

LLOYD-JONES - - - Managing-Director  Printed Butter  Wrappers  According to the new  Dominion Government  regulations all farmer*  who sell butter either  to the stores or privately, are required to have  it properly covered in  a wrapper on which  MUST appear in prominent letters the words  "DAIRY BUTTER."  The fact is also emphasized that all butter  in such packages must  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 pro-  duct.  You can be supplied  with neatly - printed  wrappers for your  butter atthe Kelowna  Record Office, for the  following prices:  100PAP^upr^���c$1.50  200  ��>    ����  2.00  500  >��    !���  3.15  1000  H    ti  4.50  These prices include Both the  Paper, which is the best obtainable  for the 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 papeV was previously manufactured in Belgium, and needless to say this supply has been entirely  cut off. Unfortunately there is no guarantee against further increases, indeed, they are more than likely.  Kelowna Record  '.-' /
