Bowk., Mona&cr of  I ..the British North America Tobacco  |' Co., first addressed the council. He  said ha had one or two requests to  make on behalf of his company.  As everyone knew the greatest difficulty existed in the city of getting  houses or lodgings, and the fact  made it very hard for them to  secure work people. They were  ���bout to erect a new factory which  would make a large increase of stall  necessary. There were two courses  open to them���either to remove  their factory to Vancouver where  the housing difficulty did not exist  ot to erect lodging houses in Kelowna. This would mean a large  amount of extra cost. It was indeed a great deal more expensive  to remain in Kelowna. In view of  these facts, he thought the council  might grant some privileges to the  in the way of exemption from taxes  and water and light.  The company had been held up  for some months for want of boxes  and labels, but they had now started their selling campaign, and  would have to add at once to their  staff. If thev could build here at a  satisfactory figure and could depend upon assistance from the city  in the way suggested, they were  willing and anxious to remain  identified with the city.  This would not only be an advantage to themselves, but an advantage to Kelowna as they were  extensive advertisers and in all  their advertisements Kelowna was  brought to the fore. This had been  especially the case at the Vancouver Exhibition where the company  were making ��� very elaborate display. The attrattions of Kelowna  were made a prominent feature,  and the same had been done in  the Old Country, where Kelowna  had been advertised as much as  the company.  Mayor Jones asked if Mr. Bowser could give sny idea as to the  size of the new factory and the  number of men likely to be employed.  Mr. Bowser said the new factory  would probably be about 60 x 140  feet, and would be located opposite the new cannery. He also  gave some interesting information  relative to the magnitude of their  business, and their rapidly increasing pay-roll.  Mr. Bowser, before withdrawing  was assured bv the Mayor that the  council would consider what he  had said, It would, of course, be  necessary to submit the proposal  to the electors before exemption  from taxes could be granted.  The Canadian Pacific Railway  Co. wrote enclosing plan of a proposed spur track to Mr. Geo. Row-  cliffe'a packing shed, and asking  for approval of interested parties  to the crossing of the line, and also the permission of the cily to  cross Haynes Avenue.  Mayor Jones read a letter from  Aid. Millie written on board the  R.M.S. " Oceanic," asking for' the  extension of his three months leave  of absence as he did not expect to  be able to get back in that time.  Jas. Munroe wrote asking for  certain payments for work done in  the nuisance ground. The council  however denied responsibility, and  the clerk was instructed to refer  him to the scavenger.  ��� A letter was read from Mr. J. B.  Hawkes, respecting the widening  of Pendozi Street.  Aid. Sutherland, on behalf of the  finance committee stated that  Messrs. Aimelius Jarvis & Co., to  whom the city had sold a recent  issue of debentures, had refused to  accept them, taking advantage of  certain clauses contained in the  conditions attached to their offer.  Probably the real reason was to be  found in the state of the market  which had fallen another five percent, since they bought the debentures, making it an advantage for  them to get out of their bargain if  they possibly could. The council  had obtained legal opinion on the  matter but it had been considered  advisable to take no further action  but simply to hold the debentures  until the market showed improvement. In the meantime the streets  committee had decided to abandon  for the present year the work on  Bernard Ave. It was not likely  that any more debentures would  be sold this vear except sewerage,  water extension and purchase of  school lands.  Mayor Jones mentioned that  there was a large amount of work  going on all over the city, and the  various foremen were making a  practice of ordering goods on behalf of the city without first obtaining an order from the clerk. The  auditors had been complaining  about the matter for the last two  months. He thought it would be  well to issue a letter to the various  tradesmen instructing them not-to  supply goods without a written  order.  A resolution was passed that the  city would not be responsible for  goods sold without proper requisitions signed by the City Clerk.  It had been arranged that the  Court of Revision of the assessment  be held oil Th ursday,August 22nd  and His Worship the Mayor and  Aid. Taylor, Raymer, Blackwood  and Sutherland were appointed as  members of the court.  Mayor Jones mentioned that a  request had been made by several  people across the lake that the city  place ��� light near the ferry wharf.  On dark nights they found it very  difficult to make a landing.  The matter was referred to the  light committee.  It was mentioned that the city  engineer had requested the privilege of using some sand from the  beach in the city park which *he  had found very well suited to his  purpose. 1 he park committee had  expressed themselves as willing. It  would be necessary to dig a hole  about two feet deep, but it was in  such a place that the water would  very soon wash sand into it and  fill it up again.  Plans were submitted by Mr, C  Harvey of a subdivision of Block  33-34. The plans however did  not entirely meet with the approval  of the council, it being considered  by some that another street should  be shown. It was arranged that  plans be held over to secure Mr.  Harvey's presence, a special meeting being called for Tuesday for  that purpose.  Aid. Sutherland stated that the  city had finished with the steam  roller, which was to be taken by  Mr. Lang for work on Black Mountain .road.  Mayor Jones said the city engineer had now conpleted the laying  of about 3000 feet of sewer pipe  on Richter St., and suggested that  the council make a visit of inspection.  The meeting then adjourned until 10 o'clock t'le following morning.  At the special meeting Tuesday  morning the subdivision plans submitted by Mr. C. Harvey were discussed at some length, and several  Bravery Rewarded  The several desperate attempts  to escape of the murderer James  before he finally paid the la��t I  penally of his crimes show the  desperate kind of man he was,  lacking the smallest scruples about  taking life or committing any atrocity to gain his ends. They serve,  too, lo bring clearly home the extent, to which his two emptors  Messrs. Seeley and Ramsey, of  Wilson's Landing, took their lives  in their hands when they held up  Jamea and hia companion at the point of  the rifle and marched them into custody,  A man who haa committed one murder  haa usually no scruples about committing  another aa the penalty ia th* aame any  way, and Jamea would not have hesitated  to ahoot hia captora if opportunity had  offerrd.  It is with pleaaure, therefore, that we  learn that although no reward waa actually  offered at the time for the capture of the  men, Messrs. Seeley and Ramsey are to  receive a reward at the hands of the  government of $500 each. There ia not only  generosity but wiadom and justice in tha  government thua rewarding what waa not  only an act of outstanding bravery but a  real public service in ridding the country  of a dangerous criminal.  Shooting Season Opens  September 2nd  The shooting season opens in  this district on September 2nd, the  first of the month f/tlltng on a Sunday. In the Okanagan ducks,  geese and snipe may be shot from  then until February 28th next, but  sold only from October 2nd to  October 31st 1912.  The season for shooting Columbia or coast deer is from September 2nd to December 15th, but it  may be sold only until October  15th 1912.  Grouse of all kinds may be shot  from September 2nd to December  31st and prairie chicken from September 15th to October 15th.

This is not to  apply to Indians, who may trap  beaver in certain districts and sell  the pelts to traders.  Convention Most  Successful Held  Benvoulin Notes  Mrs. Mantle, daughter of Mr.  T. G. Speer, is visiting her father  for a few weeks.  Charlie Stuart, a former res: lent  of Benvoulin is back just now from  Nova Scotia visiting old friends.  Mrs. R. B. Fisher, of Winnipeg,  who has been visiting the coast is  stopping here for a week or two  the guests of Mr. and Mrs. J. B.  Fisher,  A large number of friends assembled at the home of Mr. and Mrs.  Dan McLean on Saturday evening  aa a surprise party the occasion  being the twentieth anniversary of  their wedding. A very jolly evening was spent, the programme  being varied with vocal and instrumental selections rendered by  Mrs. Dolsen, Mrs. Fisher, Mrs.  Cowan, Mrs. Mantle, Miss Naismilh  and Mr. Speers. A reading was  given by Mr. D. Squair. Mr. J. B.  Fisher acted as chairman and after  a few well-chosen remsrks called  on Mr. Roy Dolsen to read the  address after which Mr. Sqaair  presented Mr. and Mrs. McLean  on behalf of the company with a  handsome cut class bowl and hand-  Rainted Limonges chins fruit dish.  Irs. Dolsen played the Wedding  March after which lunch was served. The evening was brought to  a close with the singing of Auld  Lang Syne.  of the aldermen maintained their  objection against ihe plans, holding that an additional street was  necessary before the plan could be  approved, and on the motion being put, the plans were turned  down by 3 to 2.  A resolution was passed that the  salary of the assistant clerk, Mr. P.  T. Dunn, be raised to $85 per  month to date from Augurt I si.  It was also decided that an account of $90 from Mr. R. H. Parkinson for work in connection with  the city map, be paid when necessary corrections had been made.  The meeting then resolved itself  into a committee. .  Public Control of Irrigation la  Strongly Advocated  That the convention of the Western Canada Irrigation Association  which closed its sessions here last  Friday was the most successful in  the history of the organization was  conceded by everyone from chairman, The Hon. W. R. Roes, down:  ward. Not only the large attendance at every meeting, which in  itself created a record, but the excellent papers and addresses on  subjects of vital importance, and  the keen and spirited discussion of  the many important resolutions  marked the gathering as a credit  to its organizers, and a testimony  to the energy of the secretaries,  both local and permanent.  Although the heavy rains on  Thursday and Friday spoilt the  automobile excursions which had  been planned, yet it did not in any  way interfere with the meetings in  the Opera House, which were perhaps even belter attended because  of the impossibility of getting away.  Thursday's papers included a  valuable talk on irrigation in relation to fruitgrowing by Prof. Lewis  of the Oregon State Agricultural  College, a lecture by Mr. W. M.  Pearce, a former president of the  association, on Irrigation and Forestry in other countries. Mr. M. L.  Dean, State Horticulturist of Montana, gave a mass of valuable information on apple culture, and the  best methods of combatting the  Baldwin Spot, and Mr. R. M. Win-  slow, B. C. Horticulturist showed  how climaUc conditions,���rainfall,  evaporation and wind had an all-  important bearing on the duty of  water in irrigated districts. Mr. F.  H. Peters, Commissioner of Irrigation under the Dominion Government read a paper on the Proper  Duty of Water and the necessary  irrigating head in Western Canada.  A feature which had not appeared on the progiamme was a de-  delight ful talk by Sir Wm. Wilcox,  an irrigation expert of world wide  fame, who has conducted works of  great extent for the British Government in Egypt. His unconventional and humorous method of  address was greatly enjoyed.  Thursday's discussion centred  largely around the important question of public control of irrigation,  a paper on which, by A. E. Ashcroft, engineer to the C.N.R., is reproduced in this issue. No fewer  than three resolutions bearing upon  this subject had been submitted to  the consideration of the convention. The resolutions committee  " boiled these down" into the following which passed:  WHEREAS the dry belt of Britiah Columbia haa been and ia being rapidly  developed by means of irrigation.  AND WHEREAS it haa been found  that in many initancea auch development  ia being retarded by reason of conflicting  interests in the source and control of the  water supply,  THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that  the Provincial Government be respectfully  urged to consider the advisability of pasting auch legislation aa will remedy tha  difficulties which have been found to exist,  and if possible authorizing the incorporation of waler districts with control and  diatribution of all water aupply, therein  avoiding if meana thereto can be devised,  the causes which have led to failure in  the carrying into effect of legislation along  aimilar lines in many of the United Statea  and in ths North-West Territories.  Later on, however, it was felt  that the resolution as passed was  not sufficiently comprehensive, and  left out many important aspects of  ihe question. Mr. J. A. .McKelvie  of Vernon spoke strongly on the  matter. The resolution as passed  he characterized as " rrlilk and  waler" and meaningless. The resolutions committee, he said, had  taken three resolutions and sub-  milled a mere nothing for them,  and was doing the convention a  positive injury. " I don't feel satisfied with il, and am sure the majority of the delegates do not, and I  want the motion which I am now  presenting to go to the government  just as it is without anv editing  or alterations whatever." He  hoped that the chairman, the Hon.  W. R. Ross, would take the initiative himself and suggest some solution of the problem to the government. The fruit industry will in  the next two years eclipse the mining industry, which now brings in  a tremendous revenue, and it is  about time the government was  taking cognizance of it and assisting the fruit farmers some way.  The motion, which is as follows,  was put to the meeting and carried:  Whereas the succesefnl settlement of  the dry delt of British Columbia ia dependent upon an ample and permanent water  supply for irrigation purpoaea and in the  efficient and economical diatribution of  water to all land capable of Irrigation and  that can be supplied without undue expense ;  And, Whereas the present ayatem of  supplying water by joint stock companies  in many districts only serves limited districts, and a large amount of first class fruit  and farm landa is thus without a permanent or aatisfactory water aupply ;  And, Whereas, in the opinion of this  convention it is desirable and will aaaiat in  the development of the country and safeguarding of the interests of the fanners  and fruitgrowers that might be supplied  with water from a common source, that  they have the power to organize for the  acquiring of existing systems and privilege  generally.  Therefore, Be it resolved that it is desirable that a scheme be formulated giving  the inhabitants of the districts served from  the common sources of water aupply the  power to take over control and operate  for the benefit of all land in such districts,  all water records, irrigation companies and  associations organized for tha purpoae' of  supplying water and that the provincial  government be respectfully invited to prepare and present to the legislature of B.  C. at its next session a bill providing for  the establishment of water districts and  for the organization of the inhabitants  " being users of water ','- into corporate  bodies defining the powers, dutiee and  obligations.  And that the government of the province be respectfully invited to consider the  question of aiding water diatricta in the  investigation preliminary to the establishment of a water district and under proper  control granting assistance by guaranteeing  the bonds of each district or in auch other  mnnn-r as may be deemed most expedient.  Friday morning the convention  devoted itself to the election of  officers for another year, and to  fixing 'he location of the next convention.  The officers elected were as follows :  Hon. Pres. -The Hon. Mr. Bul-  yea, Lieutenant-Governor of Alberta.  President.���Hon. .Duncan Marshall, Minister of Agriculture, Alberta.  First Vice-Pres.���W. C. Ricardo,  Vernon.  Second Vice-Pres.���J. S. Dennis,  Assistant to the President, C..P. R.,  Calgary.  Executive Committee. ��� A. S.  Dawson, Calgary ; W. H. Fairfield,  Lethbridge ; Wm. Penrce, Calgary;  Prof. W. J. Elliott, Stralhmore ; T.  Bulman, Kelowna ; J. A. McKelvie,  Vernon ; Dr. C W. Dickson, Kelowna ; and F. J. Fulton, K C, Kamloops.  Lethbridge, Alta., was fixed upon as the next place of meeting.  Mr. Norman S. Rankin was reelected permanent secretary and  accorded a hearty vote of thanks  and appreciation of his energetic  services. In addition his salary  was raised to $500 and he was  made the recipient of a handsome  grant for the extra work entailed  by the convention.  Dr. Dickson, the local secretary,  was also thanked most heartily for  his services, which had contributed  in no small degree to the splendid  success of the visit to Kelowna.  Owing to the continued rain on  Friday morning, the trip to South  Okanagan waa abandancd and the  rest of the morning was taken up  with short addresses and discussions. At midday the parly left  for Penticton, where by all accounts  they were most royally entertained  wilh motor drives and a banquet  in the evening.  Mrs. Colquette and family left  last Thursday on a visit to Toronto.  An item in our local column says  Mr. Colquette, but that is an error.  Mr. T. E Cooper, who has been  appointed secretary of the A. & T.  Association,returned Saturday from  the coast.  Miss Ethel Hall left Saturday to  attend Normal School at Vancouver. She will be spending the few  days before school opening at  Victoria.  Mr. H. II. MacLeay had an unexpected birthday celebration last  Monday when a surprise party  went up from town and made  merry for the evening.  The services at St. Michael's  church next Sunday will be as  usual, viz., Matins and Holy Communion at 11 a.m.; Evensong at  7.30 instead of as announced last  Sunday.  Board of Trade Regular  Monthly Meeting  The Board of Trade held its  monthly meeting Tuesday evening.  The attendance, however, was  small and the business transacted  was confined chiefly to the consideration of the correspondence received during the month.  Superintendent Kilpatrick of the  C. P. R. Btated that he was arranging to ship in cinders to build up  a loading platform near the tracks.  In connection with a communication from the Government telegraph department it was mentioned that a separate telegraph office  would probably be established in  the near future, as arrangements  were being made to make use of  Elliott & Copeland's office for that  purpose.  A letter from the Department of  Agriculture giving various reasons  for not establishing a fruit growing  experimental station here created  considerable adverse comment.  Mr. L. E. Taylor said he regarded it as a most unsatisfactory letter,  and he thought the matter should  not be allowed to drop until they  could get some satisfaction out of  the government. Dr. Fortier and  Prof. Dean, visitors to the convention, had both seen the necessity  for expetimental stations. It was  the duty ol the government to  make systematic experiments in  spraying, etc., and the work should  not be left to the public.  On the suggestion of Dr. Dickson, a special committee was appointed to take up the matter, and  to formulate some scheme which  could be put definitely and strongly before the Department of Agriculture. The committee appointed  were Messrs. L. E. Taylor, W. R.  Pooley and the secretary.  Mr. S. T. Elliott reported on behalf of the committee appointed to  go into the matter of connecting  up the road on the east side of the  lake so asio form a complete highway north from Penticton to Kelowna, presented the following resolution :--  WHEREAS we, the Board of Trade  of the City of Kelowna, in regular aea-  aion aeeembled, believe that a continuation of the main Vernon road from  Okanagan Miasion to the road from  Naramata te Penticton ia to-day a pressing need in the communities and cities  on the east aide of Okanagan Lake, >t ia  hereby resolved that the government  ba respectfully requeated to take the  neceaaary steps to open up thia work.  Further, that a copy of thia resolution  be drawn up and forwarded to the  Minister of Landa and Public Works,  the Minister of Finance and Agriculture,  the 1 Ion. Price Elliaon and the Hon.  Martin Burrell, Minister of Agriculture  for the Dominion of Canada.  We believe that this short stretch of  road will be of the greatest utility to the  largest number of people in our district,  and would auggest that the necessary  surveys and estimates be undertaken  thia summer and fall ao that the work  can be undertaken at the earlieat poasi.  ble moment in spring.  Dr. Dickson mentioned that the  Penticton and Naramata people  were anxious to co-operate wilh  Kelowna in their endeavors to get  the road.  Mr. A. W. Bowser proposed that  in view of the heavy correspondence, the secretary's remuneration  should be increased, a suggestion  which aroused some discussion upon the best method of handling the  numerous enquiries for information  which were coming in every day,  and adding an ever increasing burden to the secretary's duties. The  question of an increase of salary,  however, was left over for a more  representative gathering of the  members.  A vote of thanks was passed to  Dr. Dickson for the way in which  he had handled the Irrigation  Convention.  Accounts amounting to $12.21  were passed for payment.  Mr. and Mrs. T. Renwick returned yesterday from a visit to the  coast.  A meeting of the Poultry and  Pet Stock Association will be held  in Messrs. Rattenbury & Williams'  office Saturday afternoon, September 7th, at 2.30. All members and  persons interested in poultry are  requested to attend as important  business is to be transacted. There  are now over 42 paid-up members  and the Kelowna branch will soon  be ihe strongest in the province.  Arrangements are to be made for  shipping a carload of wheat for  the members.

To the Editor of  The " Kelowna Record,"  Dear Sir,-On behalf of my fellow  delegates Messrs. Thrupp, Stobart,  and myself I beg to tender through  your columns our appreciation of  the kind courtesies we received  during our attendance at the irrigation convention in your city last  week. If one event stood out more  prominently than another it was  the splendid motor trip of Thursday morning. It was a singular  coincidence that so much rain fell  during part of il considering that  our object wan lu see how the  natural deficiency was being supplemented by irrigation; but that  only served to heighten the devotion to a good cause and the skill  of the car owners in driving over  roads rendered treacherous by the  downpour.  Much of the ground covered  was new to me, all of it to my  friends; and as we are financially  interested in irrigation'what we  saw was a valuable object-lesson  in collecting, storing and distributing water necessary to evoke the  fertility of the soil.  For the first time in our history  we indulged in luscious peaches  which had it continued much  longer would have ended in a  surfeit. Tha hotel tables were kept  liberally supplied with peaches,  but it was the subject of remark  that only once did we get tomatoes  and when we had peas and beans  they were the canned variety,  Surely this should not be the case,  The French bean or scarlet runner  can be made to cover any rough  wall by n.eans  ol  a   few strings,  and the flower makes a brave  show followed by one of ihe best  of'vegelables appreciated by everybody. Perhaps our caterers will  take the hint in the same spirit  in which it is given and grow some  of these in the back premises if  ihey can't be bought in the district.  Wilh this exception everything  was admirable and the man who  was not satisfied must belong to  the class graphically described by  Sir William Wilcox as " rogue  elephants " I  Faithfully yours,  C. E. LAWRENCE.  Kamloops, B.C.  To the Editor of  The " Kelowna Record,"  Dear Sir,���With your permission  1 should like, through the columns  of your valuable paper, to extend  to the citizens of Kelowna generally the thanks of the Local Committee for the hearty manner in  which they welcomed and entertained the delegates lo the irrigation convention.  Space will not permit me to go  into details, but one thing is certain and that is, that Kelowna has  made such a reputation for itsell  that every visitor who attended the  convention has gone away with  none but the pleasantest memories  of the few days they spent in  Kelowna and the Okanagan valh-v.

For Fruit Growers  Now that the apple and pear season is on, fruit growers and fruit  packers are reminded that every  box of apples or pears offered for  sale must be properly packed in  standard sized boxes and must also  be marked in a plain and indelible  manner in letters not less than one  half-inch in length, before it is  taken from the premises where it  is-packed, with the initials of the  grower's Christian names, his full  surname and address, the names  of the variety and grade. Ordinary lead pencil marks are not indelible. A stencil is the best  means of complying with the law.  A rubber stamp will make an indelible mark if carefully used.

This princi  pie applies down through the var  ious organized governments, Feder  al, Provincial, Municipal, etc., and  is a truism that only needs to be  stated to be assented to. ln the  scheme outlined below it is at  tempted to show, in the matter of  the subject of this paper, where  the functions of the Local or Municipal government and those of the  Central or Provincial Dominion  Government apply.  Irrigation, aa practised in the  Dry Belt Districts of this Province,  is pre-eminently a fit subject for  public ownership and control. The  well-being of the cultivator of the  soil, and therefore of every inhabitant of these localities, depends  absolutely on an adequate supply  of water at the right time, and in  a lesser degree at a moderate  price. Under present conditions  this necessity is meted out mostly  by incorporated Companies, whose  official object must be to raise the  maximum revenue for the shareholders at the minimum of yearly  expense. The water user is protected against extortion by his contract and by the Government supervision of rates; he is protected  against a failure to supply water  which would in the case of an  orchardist, mean absolute ruin,  only by the standing and strength  of the particular Company whose  system covers his land. This is no  chimera or fanciful danger���it ia  hanging like the sword of Damocles  over thousands of acres of beauti  ful orchard homes. Irrigation Companies are not a financial success  as such. Combined with the business of selling land many of them  have made substantial dividends  for their stockholders. The business of constructing works to convey and distribute for Irrigation  financed solely on the revenue to  be derived from the- sale of the  water ia, in this Province, not  remunerative. If this is so, and 1  do not think it will be disputed,  the time ia not far distant when  some radical change must be made.  Higher rates, where such can be  arranged, may, in certain cases,  stave off the danger, but it will be  only a postponement. The constant demand is for more efficiency,  belter class of work, less waste of  water and damage by seepage,  These are more insisted on than  lower rates, though in many cases  the cost of water to the user is  disproportionately large.  Private capital will not remain  in channels where reasonable interest cannot be earned. Further  capital will not be available to extend, maintain and effect necessary  improvements on existing systems  unless the returns be sufficiently  certain. The answer to all this is  that some form of public ownership is an absolute necessity ; the  various systems are local so that  the ownership, and the taxation incident thereto must be local also.  The functions of the Central Government can be utilized in (a) formulating the legislation required to  empower the locality to organize'  and tax itself and (b) by throwing  its financial protection, in the form  of guarantees, over the undeitak  ing* of the local districts.  The one apparent obstacle lo the  formation of Irrigation districts  owning the Irrigation systems within their borders it that old bogey  "vested interests." The private  ownership of water rights, etc.; the  ownership of works to carry water  is not so formidable an obstacle  as thev are physical entities and  can be weighed and valued, and  the principle of expropriation for  the public good is well established.  The framers of the Water Clauses  Consolidation Act and the later  (legislation established the principle  that water is the property ol the  Crown and cannot be alienated;  that any rights to the use ol water  by individuals are contingent on  those rights being used beneficially.  Lot this be logically carried out,  land the apparent obstacle disappears. The proposal put forward  by this paper ia founded on the  above and ia aa follows:  IRRIGATION   DISTRICTS  The owners of threefifths of the  assessed value of real property in  a locality may petition the Minister  of Lands to form an Irrigation  District. The Minister causes a  map of the proposed District to be  published, the boundaries being  determined solely by the irrigation  features, and a vote of the property  holders within the proposed District to be taken. Three fifths of  the value as shown on the last  assessment rolls to carry the question. If in the affirmative, the new  District is gazetted, and all owners  of water rights and irrigation works  are deemed to have received notice  of expropriation. A Board of  Assessors is appointed by the Minister whose duty it is to hear all  claims from owners of expropriated  water property, adjudicate on same,  awarding each claimant the amount  of the monetary loss, if any, sustained by him from the formation  of the new district, and the vesting  of his rights in the same. The sum  total of the awards, together with  the expenses incidental to organization to be met by an iasue of  debentures of the District, guaranteed by the Provincial Government.  Interest and sinking fund on these  debentures which would run for  forty years, to be met by a tax on  all assessable real property in the  District. The affairs ot the District  will be managed by a Board of  seven members, three appointees  of the Minister of Lands and four  elected from the property holders  in the District. The first three to  consist of the Chief Water Commissioner, the District Water Commissioner and the District Engineer.  The same individuals may bemem-  bers of two or more Boards within  reasonable distance. The Chief  Water Commissioner is ex-officio  on the Boards of all Irrigation  Districts in the Province. The  elective members are elected for  three years, one retiring each year,  but elegible for re-election. The  duties of the Board, besides arranging the debenture issue and collecting the annual sinking fund  and interest will be to take over  and operate all irrigation works,  appoint all necessary officials, fix  a charge for the use of water  sufficient to cover working expenses  of the District.  The above is a bare outline of  the scheme for the formation of  the local units. The Government  besides assisting the Districts by  guaranteeing the debentures, might  be asked to further assist irrigation  in two ways���(I) by constructing  storage reservoirs in the mountains  where such reservoirs would be of  benefit to more than one District;  (2) by advancing the funds for the  construction of new worka in localities not sufficiently developed to  form Irrigation Districts, provided  the owners of the lands to be benefitted place a sum equal to the estimated cost af the worka as a first  charge on their lands. When a  specified number of owners are on  the assessment roll of the locality  it is formed into an Irrigation District, and the amount advanced by  the government is repaid by a debenture issue.
