 Ji1 w n- ii si% ir'r  ��  VOL V.  NO. 17.  KELOWNA. BRITISH-COLUMBIA, THURSDAY,  MAR. 20, 1913.  $1,50 Per Annum.  Meeting of  City Council  Board of Trade Ask $5000 (or  Publicity Work - Will Be  Decided by Plebiscite  Saturday  Tlie greater part of the time of  tlie council at its regular meeting  on Friday morning last waa taken  up by the receiving of deputations  on various matters. Of theae the  moat important was that from the  Board of Trade asking for a grant  of $5,000 to be used for the payment of a publicity commissioner  for the city and in advertising work  generally.  The deputation consisted of  Messrs. Kerr, Adams, Bowser,  McKenzie and Pangtnan. The latter introduced the matter and read  the following statement which had  been prepared for the guidance of  the council:���  Your Worship, and Gentlemen  of the Council of the City cf Kelowna:  . We beg to submit io you the following report of the action taken  by the Board of Trade of the City  of Kelowna and also the following  estimate of expenditure, as proposed by this Board I  At the last regular meeting of  the Board of Trade, a resolution  was adopted requesting the Pub-  '��� licity Committee, the Finance Committee and Mr. Kerr to draw up an  estimate of the funds required to  carry on the important work of  this Board, and on March 10th  1913, the Publicity Committee met  there being present Messrs. Pang-  man, McKenzie, Adams, McTavish, '  DeHart, Bowser, Kerr and secretary  Fiaher. After a careful discussion  of the aims and objects of the Board  S3ininenting upon the sum of  00 suggested as,-the salary*?  a publicity commissioner, Mr.  Pangman said it might perhaps be  thought large but the publicity  committee ol the Board had considered that it would be of little  use to get an inferior man for such  a position.  5Mr. Kerr endorsed this view.  He said it would be much better  to secure a good man and pay him  well than endeavor to economiae  by employing a cheap man who  was not thoroughly capable. He  mentioned North Battleford, which  town waa paying $3,000 a year for  a publicity commissioner because  he was an expert in securing industries to locate there. He said  that aeveral towna much smaller  than Kelowna were paying out  sums for advertiaing considerably  larger than was asked for.  Mr. A. W. Bowser said the ob-  ject in having a publicity commissioner was in order to do away  with a lot of indiscriminate advertising. He would be an advertising  medium in himself and get into  touch with any likely industries  which might be induced to locate  here. His work would give more  nnd better publicity than by putting the amount of his salary into  general advertising.  His Worship the Mayor said that  he fully sympathised with the objects of the Board of Trade. They  all recognized the benefit to be  derived from good advertising.  He especially liked the idea of,  having a publicity commissioner.  However, it waa purely a matter  of revenue. The income of the  council waat fixed. They anticipated l'dtleaSksste '" the assessment this year, while certain:  expenses would be very much bigger���the debenture rate, for instance. They naturally wished to  keep the taxes ns low as possible.  Last year the Board got a grant of  $2,000. Thia year they were asking for two and a-half times as  much or a sum equal to two mills  the committee decided  upon th  Wiswiug work   for  the  currw-ijoa the taxes.   The  council's idea  year  It is proposed by the Committee,  to employ an experienced Publicity  commissioner, who will supervise  and direct the general work of the  Board, undertaking, upon the sug-  Sestion of the Publicity Committee  10 following special work:  Instead of advertising in a general way, we would bend all our  energies towards special advertising where it will do the most good  with the object of inducing the  following industries to locate in  Kelowna, viz: Canning factory,  cold storage plant, sash snd door  factory, brick - yard, apartment  houses, tourist hotel, pickling, eider  and evaporating plant, emphasising in every case the ideal climatic  conditions as found in our city and  district. We expect our Publicity  Commissioner would familiarize  himself with conditions -here and  on the prairies, and for this the  estimates have placed an item for  " Special Travelling Expanses,"  which would be used if necessary.  The item designated, " Other Tra-  v Jling expenses," would be to  cover the cost of his attendance at  various fairs and exhibitions where  we proposed making an exhibit of  Kelowna products.  Our estimated expenditure is as  follows:  Publicity Commissioner $2,500.00  Special travelling expense.  300.00  Other travelling expenaee  600,00  Booklet.     ...r.  800.00  Office stationary and expanses  500.00  I     Rent, heat and light for office  350.00  '     Generel advertising  500.00  i    Special advertising  750.00  Grand total $6,300.00  The booklets we propose rewriting and dividing up between  a booklet similar to the one now  published, and a smaller one which  could be handled more cheaply  and given wider distribution.  '��� The Finance Committee report a  balance on hand after payment of  various accounts in process, of  $470.00, leaving $5,630.00 to be  provided for. The Board of Trade  as represented by the committee  here present, will undertake to  provide the odd $830.00 through  new membership fees and other  sources, leaving a balance of $5,000  which we respectfully ask you to  consider seriouslv and grant to us  for the prosecution of the important work outlined as above.  Trusting you will favor us with a  favorable report before our next  menthlv meeting.  was to submit (he request''to the  people by means of a plebiscite as  they hardly felt justified in expending such a large sum unless the  people expressed their approval.  After some consultstion it was  decided to call together a public  meeting on Thursday evening and  to take a poll on Saturday. The  deputation then withdrew.  Following the Board of Trade  deputation Mr. Thos. Lawson,  chairman of the Board of School  Trustees, waited on the council  with the estimates of ordinary  school expenditure for the cut rent  year. The amount asked for was  practically the same as last year, a  sum of $10,666.15 being required  to be raised by taxation. The estimates were as follows :���  Teachcra* Salaries:  High School Principal.  ���        .,     2nd division -  Public School Principal   -  2nd division  $1730  1610  1730  1130  665  865  925  865  985  1165  Two new teochere for 5 mthe   700     $12570  Secretary's Salary - - -      300  Janitor's Salary      ...      960  ���      Suppliea    . . -        300  Central Sch.

Ford, a resident of Sutherland avenue, requested the council  to construct a temporary sidewalk  on the south side of that street  which was at present in a very  bad condition. More street lights  were also required and a water  main.  A statement of Sewer Account  Expenditures to February 28th,  which had been received from the  city engineer was read, which waa  aa follows:���  EVERYONE SHOULD GET  ON VOTERS' LIST  All who are qualified are  urged to have their names  placed on the voters' list at  the earliest possible moment. Some misunderstanding  seems to prevail as to the  need for registration. All the  old Provincial and Dominion'  voters' lists have been cancelled, so that all who want to  vote at forthcoming elections  either Federal or Provincial,  must register anew. Those  who fail to do so will have no  voice in the public affairs of  the country.  Registration forms can  be  secured and filled   in  at  the  Record " office during  any  hour of the business day from  ! now until April 6th when the  list closes,  Harriers Club Formed  At a meeting held on Tuesday  in the Royal Bank Chambers, those  present, about 16, decided to form  the Kelovvna Harriers Club for ihe  purpoae of encouraging long distance racing and sprinting in this  ^district by means of weekly runs  and sports at different times of the  year. To enable the club's mem-  burs to compete in any other sports  it was decided to affiliate the club  with the governing Amateur Association in B.C. The weekly runs  were fixefl for Tuesday night at  7.30, and the committee are trying  to arrange with the Curling Club  for the renting of their rink as a  dressing room.  The following officials were  elected for 1913:���  President, Mayor Jonet,  ., Vice-Presidents, A. W. Bowser,  F. ArTaylor, Dr. L.A. A. Keller,  R.;A. Copeland, H. F. Hicks. F. J.  Foote.

An objection  was made by Mr. Kerr owing to  the smallness of some of the lots,  which, he considered, would tend  to encourage the erection of shacks  and    so   depreciate   surrounding  Board of Trade  At the monthlv meeting of the  Board of Trade held Tuesday several important matters were dealt  with and discussed which unfortunately space will not permit ub  in this issue to go into in detail.  Under reports of special committees the "publicity committee  reported upon their visit to the city  council with a request for $5,000  for publicity purposes, and the  decision of the latter to submit the  matter to a vote of the ratepayers  on Saturday. The highways committee submitted an account or  their trip over the much-desired  South Okanagan-Narameta road in  company wiih Engineer Dufresne,  of Vernon, who had roughly estimated that the road could be built  for about $70,000 instead of as  previously given by the government engineer $220,000. It was  decided to contribute $ 100 towards  the cost of an independent survey,  the other towns interested to make  up the sum required, $300.  Another matter which created  considerable discussion was the  raising of the subscription fee paid  by members of the Board. It was  proposed to make this $10 instead  of $5 in order to raise funds to  assist in the contemplated publicity  campaign. There was much said  for and against the guggeslion and  ultimately a compromise waa effected by  malting the subscription $10 for city members and $5 for countrg members.  The provision of a box for parcels in  the Post office, and the keeping open of  the wicket continuouely fyr money orders  and registered letters had been the subject  of an enquiry by a special committee who  reported that the remuneration of the Post  Master waa insufficient to cover the coat  of an addition to the staff which would  be necesaary to carry nut thia plan. A  resolution wee forwarded to the .Ponttnas-  ter-Genaral asking that steps be taken to  enable the local postmaster to increaae hia  etaff.  Mr. \V. D. Walker of South Okanagan  brought up the question of the indiscrim.  nate slaughter of game in the vicinity of  the railwey camps, and at hie auggeetion  a request wae forwarded to the government for a epecial game warden to patro  the district.  The.litck of any pcilitiee for receiving  and aending telegrams from the mission  wae complained of by the mission delegates and It was decided to take the matter up with the superintendent of govern-  telegraphe.  Hotelkeeper Fined  The local police court was a  busy place Monday last several  cases being up before Magistrate  Boyce.  The most important was a charge  brought against the proprietor of  the Palace Hotel of supplying  liquor on Sunday contrary to the  provisions of the Liquor Act. The  offence, it waa alleged, had been  committed on Sunday, March 9th,  and the information was laid by  Leslie William Field, formerly a  bartender employed at the Palace  but recently discharged. Field  himself had been hauled up the  week before on a charge of theft  from a customer of the hotel but  the case had been dismissed owing to lack of evidence.  Fields in his statement said that  two bottles of liquor had been  handed out to Charles Bills, the  latter having paid for them at the  time.  The prosecution was undertaken  by Mr. E. C. Weddell, and the  defence by Mr. R. B. Kerr.  The witnesses examined for the  defence were Mr. Geo. Peabody  and S. L. Arnot, bartender. It was  admitted that a parcel of liquor  had been handed to Bills but it  was contended that it had been  paid for on the previous day and  left to be called for.  A fine of $100 or four months  was imposed.  There were several interesting  features about this case which  might be mentioned. It was the  first occasion upon which proceedings had been taken against any  hotel in Kelowna. It was also the  prosecuting barrister's (Mr. E. C.  Weddell) first case since his call  to the bar a short time ago. The  son of Mr. E. Weddell, of Kelowna, the young lawyer has grown  up in the city and has now opened  an office and' established himself  in practice in his native town. He  has already created a favorable  impression and has the good  wishes of his numerous friends.  on. pae.5  Births  BAILEY.���On Saturdey, March 15, at tha  Groavenor Nursing Home, to the wife  of J.

Okanagan Centre  and Woods Lake  (From our own correspondent)  A number of the reaidents of our  district went up to Oyama on Monday evening to take in the concert  given in honor of the patron saint  of " Auld Ireland." We understand  it was thoroughly enjoyed by all  present.  A band of work-horses were  taken through the district last week  or. their wav to Calgary. They are  owned by the South Kelowna Land  Co., and are being taken to Calgary  in charge of Mr. R. S. Hall to be  there disposed of.  Mr. W. Boker returned last week  from Alberta where he and spent  the winter on his old home. He  brought a carload of effects with  him and is now residing on hia  property here on the road from the  old half-way house to the Centre.  We are pleased to note that the  government road gang are now at  work at Indian Point, one mile  north of Oceola. There haa been  since the road was built a dangerous curve here, and it is now to be  considerably reduced and the road  bed made forty feet wide around  this point.  The sale is reported of Mr.  Thompson's place on Okanagan  Lake, two miles north of the Centre  to a Kelowna party. This property  has a frontage on Okanagan Lake  and is partly planted out to fruit  trees. It is under the irrigation  syslem of the Okanagan Valley  Land Co.  Mr. W. Swalwell has bought the  lot owned by Mr. G. Woolen adjoining his place on the west side.  This lot has a good residence upon  it and has a fronting on the main  roail. We understand that some  Japs were after this lot and that  Mr. Swalwell circumvented the  purchase of this property bv so  undesirable an element.  ���*- - ��� ��� la, -w a.  The logging camps of Johnson  & Carswell and J. Davidson are  closed down, weather no longer  permitting continuation of tht  work. There are now over a million feet of logs piled up at the  dump on Woods Lake, ready to be  boomed and taken up to the mill  at the head of Long Lake, when  the ice is out of.the lakes.  Mr. N. V Joslyn was successful  in disposing of his ten-acre lot to  W. Bouker within the past few  days. Mr. Joslyn had thia lot all  cleared and partly planted out to  fruit trees. It is in a good location  and practically level and commands a splendid view of Okanagan Lake. Mr. Joslyn and family  are moving into a house at the  Centre till they decide upon future  moves.  The weather of late has been  very March-like, bearing witness to  the veracity of lhe old saying that  March " comes in like a lion and  goes out like a lamb." The past  two weeks have been characterized  by more than usually heavy winds  and stormy atmospheric conditions.  We will hope that the lamb in the  la'ter part of the prophecy will be  as manifest toward the close of the  month.  The residents of our district are  anxiously awaiting the coming of  the contractor's outfits and the  commencement of railroad construction between Vernon and Kelowna by the C. N. R., but hopes  seem to be deferred as to date; no  move haa been made toward actual construction though we understand that contracts have been let.  Nearly all of the right-of-way has  been purchased so that it would  Beem there is now nothing to prevent the building of this very necessary means of transportation.  Messrs. Johnson & Carswell had  the misfortune to loose a valuable  horse in their logging camp on the  Lewis property over two weeks  ago. It was one of a henvy 'team  hauling a sleigh load of logs down  a steep grade, when in some way  the load became more than the  team could hold back and getting  beyond the contiol of the driver  the sleigh got off the road and  dragged the horaes with it, the  whole getting into a bad tangle in  the stumps and brush, resulting in  the death of one of the animals.  The driver escaped unhurt.  Rutland News  (From fur own correspondent)  Miss Ida Fleming's class will  i hold an afternoon tea at the home  of Mrs. J. W. Woolsey on Thursday the 27th inst., from 3 to 6 p.m.  Owing to Easter falling on the  fourth Sunday in the month, the  Church of England service will  be conducted on March 30th, at  the usual time and place.  The'holiday-makers are all returning to Rutland. Mr. Wm. Gay  came back from Vancouver last  week, Mr. H. Elder and family  have arrived home from their trip  to the States, and Mr. and Mrs.  Norman Burrows reached Kelowna  last night, motoring in to their  home this morning.  Mr. Fee, general manager of the  Vernon Fruit Co., gave an interesting talk qn " Market Conditions "  at the schoolhouse last night. Before the close of the meeting it  was " Resolved, that the inhabitants of Rutland meet for the purpose of organizing a Fruit Growers'  Union, with a view to improving  the marketing conditions." This  union will be organized on Wednesday evening, April 2nd.  Glenmore Notes  Mr. G. H. Kerr, who spent last  summer on his farm in Glenmore,  returned to Kelowna on Tuesday  from Sherbrooke, Quebec, where  he has been spending the winter  with his family. Mr Kerr has great  confidence in the fufure of Glenmore and haa shown it by purchasing another farm adjoining the 60  odd acres which he has been developing. He has alao purchased  two lots in the Woodlawn aub-  division of the city.  Mr. F. J. Barter, of pury, Que.,  arrived in Kelowna on Monday's  boat with Mr. Geo. H. Kerr. Mr.  Barter is very favorably impressed  with. Kelowna,. and surrounding  district and has purchased four  lots in Woodlawn subdivision.  He is at present visiting with Mr.  Kerr on his ranch.  Mr. M. W. Russell, chief horticulturist for the Central Okanagan  Lands, Ltd., returned on {Saturday  last from north Yakima, Wash-  where he hss been attending to  the selection and shipment of about  60,000 trees which are for planting  in Glenmore this spring. Mr. Russell states that he was able to procure an excellent selection.  Mr. R. H. Johnstone and two  brothers, C. E. and S. H., arrived  from Montreal on Wednesday.  They have purchased some 30  acres of land in Glenmore which  they intend developing this year.  They intend building a residence  on their property this spring.  Mr. L. G. Mayhew arrived in  town on Wednesday from Medicine Hat, Alberta. Mr. Mayhew is  making arrangements while here  for the care of his Glenmore orchard for the coming season. He  i; accompanied by his friend Mr.  R. H. dark, of Mortlac. Sask.  We note that road foreman Watt  of this section has invested in an  automobile and was trying it out  this week for the first time. Owing  to the large amount of driving involved in taking One of the roads  and bridges throughout his section  Mr. Watt found it necessary for the  more efficient handling of the work  to own a car. It will alao prove a  valuable asset in determining the  needs of the roads for the ever-  increasing motor-driven vehicles.  This is the first car to be owned in  this district, but no doubt, will only  be the precursor of more to come  A case was tried at the county  court assize in Vernon on Friday  last of considerable local interest.  A number of the fruitgrowers had  gone in together last fall to make  np a carload of onions which thry  sold to Mr. Gellately, of Gellately  Landing, the consideration being  at the rate of $18 per ton. After  considerable humbugging around the  growers finally received the magnificent  eum of 14c. a bag for their onions from  Mr. Gellately I Naturally the growers became imbued with much ire at euch des-  piceble treatment and forthwith put their  case in the hands of a lawyer, and w. are  Rlad to elate that they won out. and now  Ir.

School Attendance  It is generally supposed that  most people realize the very great  importance of giving children  a good education as the beat start  in life, and seeing to it that full  advantage is taken of whatever  educational facilities are provided  The attendance records of some of  the scholars at the Public school  would seem to indicate that  there are still many parents who  either are indifferent as to what  provision their children make for  the future or who have not sufficient control over them to see that  they attend school with any degree  of regularity. This spasmodic attendance makes it impossible for a  child to keep pace with the rest ol  the class, and thus is a hindrance  not only to himself but to others  who would make progress.  Matters r��f \ntt* hnve become so  bdd in tins leaped thai llie school  trustees have decided to avail  themselves of the powers conferred under the School Act, and to  try the effect of a little coercion  where the neglect is too persistent  The following will serve to show  the power vested in the school hoard  to deal with such delinquency :  EXTRACTS FROM THE SCHOOL ACT  Section! 140. 141 and 142.  Every child from the  age   of   aeven   to  fourteen inclusive shall attend school during  tlie regular school hours ever]) day, subject  to the following exemptions:  1. That the child is being educated by  some ctlier means satisfactory to the Police  Magistrate.  2. That tlie child is prevented from attending school by bickness or any other  unavoidable cause.  It shall be the duty of the Trustees of  every Public School, after having been  notified that the parents or guardians of  any child continue to i.eglect or violate the  provisions of the laat proceeding section,  to make complaint of such neglect nr violation to the Police Magistrate, and it shall  be competent for the Police Magistrate to  investigate and decide in a summary manner upon such complfiint make by the  Trustees against any parent or guardian  for violation of the said section and to  impose a tine not exceeding five dollars  for the firat wilful offence and double that  penalty for each subsequent offence.  Items from Ellison  (From our own cime��pona��nt)  On Friday last the literary society  held their final meeting. The proceedings took the form of a concert and dance, a very huge audience being preaent. The following  ladies and gentlemen look part  and acquitted themselves in a  highly satisfactory manner.

Hereron gave a  capital rendering of the " Minstrel  Boy," and four of the schoolgirls  raised the audience to a high pitch  of enthusiasm by their quaint dress  and actions whilst singing " Father  O'Flynn."  The provisions were of an excellent character and reflected  great credit on Mrs. Morrison and  Mrs. M. Hereron who had charge  of the refreshment depaitment.

Mr. Quinn, however, refused to  give any such guarantee, but said  that as the owner of adjoining  property it was not likely he would  allow anything to be erected which  would be' detrimental to the  neighborhood. The plan was approved by the council.  In reference to (he proposed  new street from Water street to  Park avenue, Mr. Parkinson suggested that the plan be allowed to  go through at present with a 33 ft.  atreet. This, however, was not  agreed to by the council. A letter  of objection from Mr. G. A. Chick  waa read but was riot considered  a serious obstacle to the atreet as  none of Mr. Chick's property would  be required.  A plan of Blocks 4 and 17, Plan  202, was also handed in by Mr.  Parkinson.  The mayor stated that an adjoining owner had aome objection  to this plan. He thought that before plans were submitted to the  council provision should be made  for obtaining the consent of all  adjoining owners.  This was made the subject of a  resolution which ran " That no  plans be passed by the council  which do not have the signatures  of all property holders concerned.  A letter was read from Mr. H.  A. Willis, requesting the council to  make a road through a swamp in  the Marty subdivision where he  wished to build. It was arranged  that the Board of Works should  view the property.  A letter of release of right of  action was received from George  Snyder who had met wilh an accident some time ago on the sewerage works, the city having paid his  medical fees.  Mr. A. O.

It was stated  that no such permits had been  given,: and the council decided that  all signs which hsd been erected  contrary to the by-law should be  removed.  Aid. Calder reported that Mr.  Haug had requested the council to  put an extra street light at the corner of Eli Avenue ond Water St.,  as owing to the presence of the  Bunk House a great many foreigners were passing backwards and  forwards all the time, and ladies  did not care to use that part of the  street at night. The committee  were authorized to see that a light  was provided.  Discussion then turned to the  question of sidewalks. It was felt  that notwithstanding the money  marke' the construction of sidewalks could not be delayed any  longer as people were asking for  them all over the city. It was decided to advertise at once for applications foi sidewalks, and then  consider ways and means of raising the necessary money.  The Mayor said it was absolutely  necessary to make provision for  more office accommodation for the  city. He stated that there were  three propositions for the council's  consideration. I. To rent office  rooms in the Sutherland block.  2. To rent the two rooms on the  east side of the Keller block. 3.  To retain the present room and  rent the large room formerly occupied by the K.L.O. Co. at an additional rental of $20.  Aid. Sutherland said he could  make arrangements to have two  good rooms fitted up in the Sutherland block and also a small hall  in which public meetings could be  held. He onjy, however, suggested  this in view' of the present financial  stringency, and strongly advised  the council to erect a city hall as  soon as the money market improved.  It was decided to take a large  room in the Keller block for the  present.  The meeting then adjourned.  HEWETSON and MANTLE, Ltd.
