KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, MAY 18, 1916.���6 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Council to Defend Action Brought by C.N.R.  i    Considering Raising Water  and Light Rates  There was a full attendance of members at Friday morning's meeting  of tho Oity Council. '  |  Aid. Sutherland reported at~consid-!  erable length on. the result of his re- ]  oent visit to the coast which had been :  mado for the purpose of consulting  counsel as to the city's course in tho  action which had been commenced by  the Canadian Northern Railway Co.  against the city with the objcot of  obtaining an order declaring the sale  of their property for taxes illegal.  The company possesses considerable  land,within the city, only aportlon of  which, is comprised in their right-of-  v:ay. Tho company claim exemption  from taxes for all their property under the terms of an agreement winh the  provincial government. The city-  claims that as this land.is not used  for railway purposes* the company is  liable for taxes, and proceeded at the  recent tax sale to sell the proporty in  tho usual way.  ��� After a careful consideration of Aid.  Sutherland's report the council decided to authorise tho Finance committee  to use their discretion in engaging the  neicessnry counsel and instructing thu  city solicitors to proceed with the defence.  ^ Aid. Harvey had a report to make  regarding tho proposal to lay a wntor  service pipe tt> thc cemetery, a matter  which came within tho provinco of the  Parks committor. Aid. Harvey stut-  ��� od that he had boon offered a quantity  of.3 inch woodon pipe for 9$ cents per  foot, nnd 2 inch iron pipe at 32 cents  per foot. The cost of new 2 inch  pipe would bo 45 conts  per foot.  It was decided to authorize the committee to purchaso the wood pipe. if  it was found to be in good condition.  Aid. Millie, on behalf ot the ; Fire  committee, stated that he had interviewed tho Firo Brigade on the Bug*  postion made nt the last meeting of the  council that the caretaker of the Firo  Hall, Mr. Nash, should also undertake  the cleaning of the city offices. He  said that no objection would be raised by the Chief if tho oaretaker waa  paid an additional $10 per'month.  It was considered that thc small  sum which could be saved by such an  arrangement would not warrant the  additional risk which would be Imposed by the absence from the Fire Hall  of Fireman Nash while ho was cleaning  the offices, and it was decided to continue the present arrangement with  Mr. Markham.  Mayor Jones reported having attended a recent meeting of the Firo  Brigade, and was pleased to note that  tho newer members were taking a very  keen interest in the Brigade. iThis,  ho considered, was a very good sign,  and meant an assurance that tho  Brigade's roputation would not suffer  in any respect from the faot that so  many of the experienced men had  been called away from" the city.  Aid. Millie recommended that tho  Fire Hall bo thoroughly cleaned and  kalsomined. IThe work would " bo  done by the caretaker, so that tho  only expense ontoiled by the oity  would be for the cost of the material.  Aid. Sutherland reported that as a  result of an interview with the Kel-  , owna Sawmill Cfo. they had offered  to supply tho city with sawdust fuel  from their mill for $300 per month.  The city waB to undertake the hauling  of the sawdust from the hoppers.  The matter was referred to the Light  and Water committee.  Tho Chief oonstable submitted his  report for the month of April, showing' a total of five cases before the  magistrate, and fines amounting to  $82 imposed and paid. He also  ferred to the fact that during the  month three bicycles had been stolen,  but all had been recovered-. Two of  them were found in the shed at the  back of the old barracks on Glenn  avenue, and the third in 'the lane at  the roar of the same place.  With reference to a recent application from the wholesale houses in the  oity for a reduction of the rate of  their trade licence fee. it was deaided  that on account of ii�� being necessary  this year to spend a considerable sum  of money in the-wholesale district for  street repairs, etc., the request oould  not be granted. The clerk was therefore instructed to boo that tho fees as  laid down by the by-law were collected  from thrteo concerned.

I Much of the ground covorod Is al-  I ready familiar, and thc government  was given a sevoro raking on account  of the Dominion Trust failure, tho increase of the public debt, the growth  of the civil service expenditure, and  the railway policy.

He recalled  the condition of the province when  the present government was called to  power in 1903. Public affairs and  finances wore in u state of chaos, and  there was an enormous public debt in  proportion to the then comparatively  small population. Only a strong and  progressive government, could have  brought the administration of affairs  into order, and the great development  of the province since that day was an  evidence of this progressive policy.  He dealt with the much-criticised  railway policy, which had been twice  overwhelmingly endorsed bj' the people  und which would yet prove an enormous -benefit in opening up the var-  ous parts of the province to settle  ment and providing an outlet f*jr its  products.

"As a private Individual nnd citizen  who happens to bo a member of parliament, I have no time for criticisms.  I am behind the clear-eyed purpose iof  tho Premier of Canada, and so are thc  people of Canada. The demand now  is to stand under the llntf we love and  to stand behind a government whom  history has recorded, has done so  well. I am behind this government  and 1 belkue the people are behind  \ this 'government until the war is beyond all doubt."  I Such was the striking statement  | made by Dr. Michael Clark, the Liber*  I oral member for lied Deer and a very  j prominent member of his party. Whilst  j it naturally caused some sensation  'amongst the Liberals, and came somewhat, as a surprise to all, yet, at the  flame time it portrayed the right  spirit, nnd was, incidentally, a fine  and fitting tribute to Sir Robert Borden    nnd the members of his govern-  Daylight Saving Proposition  Gradually Gains Favor  It may bo news to somo that on  May 1st Germany, anil probably Austria and Holland, will set their clocks  ahead on hour. Kven this announcement is not likely to croato any  serious prejudice in these parts against  the daylight saving movement. On  the daylight plan in general, the Dublin News says:  " .Some time ago, when the world  was loss ombarrisingly endowed with  things to talk about, there was agitation for a plan of gaining an hour of  daylight by setting all clocks abend  an hour during the summer months. It  is interesting to note the reappearance  of this plan as a by-product of war.  The federal council of Germany has  directed, that ufter May 1st all clocks  in Germany are to be set ahead one  hour. Of course the purpoBo is to got  people into bed un hour earlier so us  to stive the cost of an hour's artificial  lighting. They must save everything  in Germany, and this is the latest  economy. Though it never came to  anything but talk, much of it rather  silly, especially the discussion about  the effect of the change, when it was  broached in this country, there really  in merit in the plan. During the  months when the sun is broad for  many hours of thc day, tho change  would work out beautifully. After  a day or two nobody would notice  the difference, but the fact would be  thnt everybody would ruise un hour  earlier, thereby adding to every day  one hour of daylight. Having been  adopted in Gormany as a war measure, it would not bo at all surprising  to see it stick and, later spread."  The Minneapolis Tribune has this to  say on the scheme : "This simple expedient will y, .id the people an hour  more of daylight for waking use each  day of the summer. Without apparently changing their daily routine as  ordered by the clock, the inhabitants  of these countries will, in fact, rise  an hour earlier each morning. They  will have an hour more of daylight  for recreation in the late afternoon.  The time-tables will not have to be  changed in the least. All the ordered  things of life���the hours of meals, for  evening gatherings, and so on���will be  precisely as before, except, that in foct  an hour of light will be redemed from  slumber, and an hour more of darkness devoted to it. The same plan  has been strongly urged in this country, but the difficulty is to get it  officially started. Neither cities nor  states can order the change individually, because of tho dislocation of  relations with other cities or states.  The- railroads might possibly achieve  it by general agreement, just as they  established standard time, but they  havo no particular motive for undertaking it, as they operate day and  night. Whethei the federal government could order the change each May  day. is a question. The difficulty is  just another example of the inconveniences to which our peculiar form of  federal government sometimes subjects  us."  The daylight saving question was  discussed in England long before it  wns mooted, en the continent, and  there seemed to be a very general  manifestation of approval. There is  a great deal to be said in favor of any  movement that means more outdoor  life for the people of countries, at  least, where all-day indoor life is practically enforced for several months in  t he year.

British Columbia coast mills havo a  capacity of Tun.000,000 feet of lumber  annually. Of this 280,000,000 foot is  availuble for export. The government's bill to provide for loans to  ship-builders nnd the payment of a  conditional bonus after the war, is  being "brought down for the purpose of  providing the ships without which the  280,000,000 feet of lumber cannot be  shipped to the 810,500,000 overseas  market in Australia, tho $2/)OOiT,000  market in New Zealand, the $6,000,000  market in South Africa, and the big  markets in South America, India,  Japan, Straits Settlements, and ICast  Africa.  At present, because of lack of ships,  Canada is only selling 8205,000 worth  of lumber to Australia, whereas the  United States, which has ships,, is  selling 87,000,000; Norway nnd Sweden  ure selling $420,000; and llussia, OT,  1)00 worth. In addition Australia is  buying 8110,000 worth of box shooks,  of which SO per cent, is supplied in  normal times byGermany, Sweden, and  Norway, und practically none by Canada.  These and similar ligureB, showing  that other countries are supplying the  demand, wen' given by Mr. If, B.  Thompson (Victoria) on the second  reading of the bill.  Mr. Thompson pointed out that the  construction of ships in this province  would be of benefit to the province at  largo ns well as to the lumber industry  nnd thnt they would on their return  voyages carry goods to British Columbia, and that they would be needed for grain carrying purposes. He  urged that Lumbermen should co-nper-  uto with the government by keeping  their products up to specificutions,  und recommended the establishment of  a lumber grading bureau which would  issue official grading certificates as is  done in the ense of wheat and cheese.  Tie also urged that the Dominion  should exempt from duty all materials  used in ship-building, pointing out  that ships could be constructed in  Great Britain out of duty-free in ntoral r and then brought out to this  country and "Compete unfairly with  Canadian built ships.  Mr. Thomas said the bill was a  practical measure which would havo  tho effect of attracting capital,to construct ships, and that the province  was thoroughly protected by the ample security thnt wus provided for.  On the other hand lumbermen'yould  !w   protected    by     the regulation of  Small Fires Mark Opening  of Fire  Advices to the Minister of Lands,  from the southern interior of the province mark the beginning of the fire  Benson, small tires being reported from  the Crunbrooke, Nelson, and Vernon  forest districts.

It is worthy of mention  that in 1U15, 305 fires out of a total  of 1031 outbreaks, were traced to  campers and travelers; while 267 wore  caused by lund clearing operations.  Damage by fires to the timber in 1915  amounted to 8109,000, and other property, viz : logging equipment, farm  houses and buildings, etc., 858,000*.  The majority of all ifires in 1915 were,  as usual, due to human agency, nnd  were therefore preventable. Particular  ly this seasoni when tho empire Is engaged in a vast and wealth destroying  war on a scale hitherto unthought of,  it is the duty of every citizen to assist  in preserving our resources from avoidable destruction.

Boughman drove up from  Penticton last week to look after  his fruit lot here while spraying  operations are on,  On Thursday last a meeting of  the local ranchers was held in the  schoolhouse, on which occasion  the government's plans for the control of the codling moth infection  in Westbank were announced by  Mr. Ben Hoy, assistant inspector  of fruit pests. Mr. Gore, president  of the Farmers' Institute, ably filled  the chair, and after a few introductory remarks called upon Mr. Hoy  to address the meeting.  In beginning Mr. Hoy said that  the codling moth was discovered  in Westbank,rtoo late last summer  to definitely check it, but this year  the government, knowing the enormous damage caused by this pest  when it becomes a permanent infection in any area, has determined  to make every effort to eradicate  the pest from Westbank and other  infected areas in the vallev. Mr.  Hoy added that the government  would establish a quarantine over  the whole district and would take  due supervision of all spraying,  bandaging of trees, and inspection  of outgoing fruit. For the spraying  the government has four large  power sprays ready to be brought  to Westbank, and these sprays will  be supplied to the local farmers  for use absolutely free. The only  expense the grower will be subject  to will be the cost of the spray  materials, and he will be expected  to supply a team oi horses for the  sprayer whilst on his own property, also a nozzle man.  Mr. Chesbro, of Kelowna, who  has been appointed to carrv ou!  the government plans in Westbank  this season, also addressed the  meeting and urged the necessity  of hearty co-operation between the  farmers and himself in order that  the pest might be permanently  stamped out.  Both speakers were emphatic on  the fact that if the first spraying is  done thoroughly the infection wi  be permanently checked and hence  will not damage the fruit in its developing stages.  Replying to a question Mr. Hov  said that Westbank fruit will b>  permitted to be shipped out as  usual after passing inspection,.

The  government, having purchased a  supply before the raise, a limited  amount can be purchased at the  old price. Orders should be given  at once to the secretary of the  Farmers' Institute.  Evidence of the lateness of the  season this year is shown by the  very recent arrival of the swallows  which for the past seven years  have raised their brood between  the first floor beams of the Record  office, entering just above the right  window.

THE BATTLE OF TRAFALGAR  (Some faots about it)  Lord Nelson, as you know, commanded ehe British fleet, while Admiral  Villeneuve was' in command- ot tlie  combined French and Spanish fleets.  The British force consisted of 27 sail  of the line, 4 frigates, il schooner, and  1 cutler. Villoneuvo'B fleet amounted  to 33 sail of the lino, 5 frigates, and  2 brigs. - The British fleet was formed into two linos, that of the enemy  being a double line incloBO ordor.i Tt  was Nelson's intontion to break up  this formation, and just beforo tho  British fleet udvanced, the famous .signal was hoisted. It was not until  the battle was drawing to a close  that Nelson was mortally wounded,  and he lived to hear of his great victory.  HOW TO SUCCEED  "What is tho secret of success?"  asked the Sphinx.  "Tako pains (panes), said the Window.  "Never bo led (lead)," said tho Blue  Ponoil.  "Always keep cool," said the Ioe.  "Be up-to-dato," said the Calendar.  "Make light of everything," said  tho Gas.  "Spend much time in reflection,"  said the Mirror.  "Find a good thing and stick to  it," said tho Glue.  "Never take sidos, but be round  when you're wanted," said the Ball.  "Strive to make a good impression," said the S?al.        '    *  "Turn all things to advantage,"  said the Lathe.  "Never do anything off-hand/* said  the Glove.  "Make much of littl things," said  the Microscope.  Trained Bops at the Front  How They Serve the Frenoh  Dogs are being used extensively ly  the French as auxiliaries !.i the war,  and the various services to whioh they  are put are described by the Paris correspondent of the "Pall Mall Gazette"  in an interesting article. CotiU'ary to  what was thought at first, shooting  dogs do not make tbe oeat for tVr&y  work; the most suitable ftl*a nhoep and  mountain dogs. They nie rivided into five classes: w&toh dogs, patrol  dogs, messengers, ambulance o<gs, nni  pack dogB. All must be gentle and  obedient, and of course they must have  a good nose, but thero must bo no  attempt at thrashing them into o'heu-  ience. A frightened animal is a danger to all concerned. Bitches have  shown themselves hotter jtestags jarr-  iers than, dogs. They will take ft note  to a trench or position any distance  up to about four miles, and can l'o  relied upon to come baok with iho  answer without stopping or dwad'log  on the way. Shell or rifle fire does  noil worry them, nnd it is most unusual for them to got hit.  In the old days, the ambulance dogs  wero taught to bring back a wounded  man's cap or handkerchief. This is  quite an out of date method. Tho  handherbhief business especially was to  be condemned owing to the danger of  a dog mistaking tlie white gauze of a  bandage for a handherchiof and pulling off the dressing from a wound. A  modern trained dog would never think  of touching a bandage, although they  would pick up a handkerchief. They  aro taught to bring back anything  lying about or within a yard or two  of the wounded man���a pipe, a box of  matches, any piece of equipment, or  even a stone found near him, so long  as they come back with something to  indicate that they have discovered  someone requimg assistance.  A watch dog never barks; at most  he will use a low growl to indicate  the presence or approach of a hostile  force. Moro often than not the mere  pricking of.the ears or attitude of expectancy is sufficient to put his master  on his guard. As an indication of  what they can do, a newly trained  dog was brought into a front-line post  0tte night, nnd after sniffing tho air  a while, "pointed" obstinately at n  certain part of tho trench, and could  not he induced to come away. His  companion declared that there must  bo somo Germans around near by, but  tho habitual occupants of the trench  ridiculed the idea; the thing was impossible, they said. The dog's keeper  reported that nothing was impossible  when Germans and their heathen tricks  were concerned, and ho would stake  his life upon it that there were Germans about. '  Suddenly a soldier asked whether it  was possible that the.dog had struck  a listening post. Every one knew  that' there was ono about somewhere,  but no one had ever been able to spot  it. The captain was sent for, and  acquainted with the situation. Although sceptical, he ordered three fire-  rockets to be sent up in tho direction  indicated, and there, sure enough, was  to be seen three Germans posted in a  Bpot only a dozen yards or so off the  tronoh. The dog had nosed out in  less than a quarter of an hour a listening post whioh the entire regiment  had spent two months tryng to find.  Among French army dogs is "Cadet'  wjiose specialty is running down and  capturing enemy dogs. Not a day  passes but that ho brings in two or  three, often bigger than himself. He  has a way of catching thom by tho  ear and frog-marching them along,  which is inimitable, and has caused  him to bo mentioned in despatches on  more than ono occasion. Pack dogs  play less heroic parts, but have their  uses just tho same,and terriors are  utilised at tho front for keeping down  the rats.   O   UNITED GROWERS WIU, MARK'CT  FRUIT FROM B0UNDRY  COUNTRY  Recognizing the worth of the Okanagan United Growers as a selling  force in tho fruit markets, thero was  started a movement on the part of  several of the organizations and large  producers of the south-eastern portion  of this province to link up wit', the  organized growers of the Okanagan,  which ( it is Raid has finally resulted  in the Okanagan United Growers undertaking to act as selling agents for  growers in tho Kootenay and '.��ui.d-  ary districts.  Manager Jackson has just returned  from that seotion where he went by  invitation, and though the details are  not yet available, it is understood  that a large quantity of berries, soft  fruits, and apples will be marketed  from there by the growers, thus further guarding against price cutting.��� '  Summerland Review.
