 ma  mm  VOL VI.  NO. 26.  aiy*lS.atCnt$f  Severto Canery  CITY   IHBIGATION   PBOBLEH  COMES UP AGAIN  The city oounoil held a short sessiin  laat Saturday evening, the time being  changed from Friday owing to the absence of the Mayor.  The chief matter uodsr discussloo  wa* the request of the Canning Co. to  extend th* sewer in their direction.  The proposal wa* to lay a temporary  wood pipe through which the company  oould pump their waste,to the nearest  sewer. A* the coat of such a connection would reach a considerable fig ire  it was thought that although it wa*  tho desire of the council to encourage  looal industries in every possible way,  the company should bear a proportion  ol the coat. It wa* therefore decided  that the city signify its willingness to  purchase ths necessary pipe on condition that the Canning Company bear  the cost of laving it, and pay all other  expanse* incurred in making the installation. This was embodied in the  form of a resolution and carried.  Aid. Kattenbury, on behalf of fie  Fire committee, stated that it )<(d  been deemed inadvisable to connect  the Fire Hall with the sewer at pres  ent, aa suggested at a previous   met  ing.  r  Aid. Duggan said the Parks committee had decided to ask the council to  extend the electric light along the new  gravel walk which had been put' in tn  the Park along the lake front beyaod  the Aquatic pavilion.  Considerable indignation waa expressed at the announcement that a  number of primrose* which had just  been planted had been stolen from the  Perk.  It was mentioned that the Board of  Work* had taken up B two-plaak lioV  walk from Fuller avenue, aad that  several application* had been nun* for  portion* of it to be put down temporarily in various place*. It wa* felt  with the Board of Works to us* ,.t  planks, which were in good condition,  to tha best advantage.  An - application had'been made by  Mr. 0. a*m*sft, of l*e brickyard, lor  an extension of the city water there  for drinking purposes. The council  fa)t..tha requ**S obuM not be gran-ed,  aVaSaaaSa  KELOWNA. BRITISH  Loot Iflttti Lonre Foi  Verm Training  Early Monday morning the first contingent of the local militia consisting  ofi some fifty offioer* and nun of "D'  Squadron of the B. C. Hone left for  Vernon, where , the annual spring  training camp is being held. The  mounted man, under the command of  Major Clarke, assembled in the park  at 7.80 a.m., and made a picturesque  sight, aa, half an hour later they set  out up Bernard avenue on th* 36-mile  ride to Vernon. Mr. Duncan, of the  opera house secured a moving picture  film of the squadron a* they passed  up the street, and no doubt' thia will  be thrown on the screen at an early  date. Last Saturday ai advance party  of twelve men went up on the boat  to make preparations for the rest of  the squadron.  The local company, of Rocky Mountain Banger* under Capt- Rose will  leave this weekend, for the camp where  they will spend probably four days.  The site of the militia camp lies to  the south of Verbon, just outside the  city boundaries on a slope of open  grassland looking awav over the town  to the Spallumcheen Valley and Sica-  mous Junction. This is the third annual camp in succession held at Vernon.  Mr*. P. 0. Bird will receive on Friday, May 29th and not again this season.  ...  At the city polioe court on Wednesday before Magistrate Weddell an Italian named Savine Lasaco was brought  up on two oharge* of attempted rape.  Ha was committed for trial and con:  veyed to Vernon this morning.  a* 1400 feet o! pipe would be needjd,  making th* coat very Mdi, and ���>��� y  three other connections were available  in that direction.  Mayor Jones stated that Mr. Rambler Paul had approached him on the  subject of irrigation water, witl*a\ lew  to getting the city to fate oyer the  system    and collect due* to maintain  lilt wa* the general opinion, however,  that the oounoil could take no aotion  unless a petition was presented   from  all th* user* of the water.  Meeting of Ratepayers  Endorses Money By-laws  BY-LAWS TO PURCHASE ROAD MACHINERY, FIRE TRUCK AND ELECTRIC PLANT VOTED ON ON WEDNESDAY NEXT  By a unanimous vote the by-laws relating to power house equipment, toad  making machinery and an auto fire  trash war* approved at a meeting of  ratepayers held at th* Board of Trad*  building Monday evening. Tha object  of the meeting wa* to give an opportunity to tha publio of diaousaing ths  proposed by-laws before being voted  upon; but tha priming need ior tb**s  improvements wa* so apparent from  the excellent speech** of tht various  ninnies* ol tb* council���particularly  that of Alderman Sutherland���that th*  by-laws were approved prastleaMy without any discussion. ...  Hi* Worship tha Mayor, in opening  . tha proceedings, first referred to th*  proposed by-law for the purpon* of extending the (laetrio light ayttata yf  th* oity. Last year, he said, the consumption of power had increased considerably. This year again than had  already bean a big inorease in th* demand for power; they certainly anticipated that the demand taken altogether would be as great a* last year.  They therefor* felt no little anxiety  about running with such heavy overload on account of the danger to tha  live* of the workmen in charge and  damage to the machinery, and it wa*  thought they war* doing wall to submit a'bylaw asking that an extra unit  be added to the present power houss  equipment. The cost of this unit  and everything in connection with it*  running would be about $13,000. 7  Turning to the question of the bylaw for raising $3,600 for tba purpose  of purchasing road making machinery,  th* mayor paid a high tribute to th*  . splendid work tht street committee had  performed during the past few years.  But In order to have really good  road*, taid Hi* Wonhip, it wa* neoes-  >ary to purchase a steam roller and  alio an extra sprinkler, so that th*  street* oould b* kept in good oonditton  Th* Hr* brigade had mat a    short  hardships with which they had to con-  lend, Mayor Jones suggested that th*  deputation stay over until the following morning to consult with th* road  committee of the Board with a view to  making strong representations to the  road superintendent. This wa* agreed  to.  A large batch of correspondence wa*  dealt with relating to matters under  consideration by the Board.  The secretary reported having received replies from a number of towns and,  eities   throughout Canada in response  time ago,. he continued, and instead of  making a request that the counoil  should spend $8,800 to $10,000 on an  auto truck, in view of the hard times,  they had suggested that a second-hand  auto.be purchased and a truck built  on it. Thi* would enable them to get'  to a.fire much more quickly than running their appliances by hand or connecting up with *ome hired auto. <  Hi* worship then called upon Alderman Adams, as chairman of the Light  and Water department to address the  meeting.  Alderman Adam* remarked that as  many of tha present knew, the power  house light plant had been running at  a considerable overload during tbe  past winter, and previous to that time  practically 30 por oent ol an overload  had been carried. Ths manufacturer* of  the machinery guaranteed only about  25 per oent for two hours in the day,  and his committee felt it advisable,  owing to the faot that the demands oa  the power house had increased during  the past four months and would no  doubt be further increased, that their  present plant would be inadequate this  winter.  At the present time there was one  150 horse power engine generating 100  kilowat*. That wa* about six year*  old. Thar* wa* another smaller unit,  about 80 hone power, generating 50.  kilowats. It was the plan of the  Light oommittee to instal a 225 horn  power vertical engine. This engine  complete would oost about $12,000 and  that wa* tb* amount they were asking  the ratepayer* to vote on.  If they went on, as at present, carrying the overload there wo* a Possibility ol a oomplete breakdown in the  light plant, and he wa* sure they  would not care to go baok to the oW  time* again when the} used kerosene  temp* and candle*.

The' settlers  were present in full force, and sxpress-  ed themselves in mott indignant terms  at the manner in whloh repeated proV  raises of the government had bean left  unfulfilled. They contended that they  had not received Jtheir just share dot  road appropriations in th* past, and  that they suffered the greatest inconveniences in getting to and from their  ranches.  Mr. J, Porter told how only a few.  days ago he had lost a valuable team  and. came near losing his life a* well;  in attempting to cross Bear Creek. He  said he had already expended some  $600 from his own pocket in road oon'  struolion, and now thia last mishap1  had cost him $450, in addition to  whioh his wagon was still at the bottom of the creek. .This, as he express  ed it," was putting.his taxes up pretty  high." Repeated promises had been  made to bridge the creek at this point  but nothing had been done.  ���hoot buck deer up to the first of  April, uIbo the request for a close  season on does for two year* and the  prohibition of the sale of venison at  any time in the Okanagan Valley, and  Stated that these' matter* would be  brought to the attention of 'the Attorney General.  Ibr. A. Bryan William*, the provin.  (1*1 game warden replying to a request of the Board that an assistant  to Deputy Game Warden Sullivan be'  appointed informed the board that Mr. |  Leader had been engaged temporarily  and if hia services proved satisfactory  be would be retained permanently.  the secretary stated that he had in-  terviewes Superintendent McKay of  the C.P.R., that morning, and he had  been informed that lavatory accommodations would be provided at the  wharf in the course of a week oriwo;  A letter had been sent to the provincial secretary by the Board ira.v'ng  attention to the destruction caused  to game birds eggs by-magpies end  grows which had increased considerably (in the district of late, and suggesting that a bounty should be placed on  these pest*. A reply had been received  from the Hon. Dr. Young that    this  After other settlers had related   the matter would receive attention.  to request* for ioformation regarding amount ol unpaid subscriptions   from  the- formation, end working ol public  market*.  Mr. L. E. Taylor drew attention to  a nlause in the report of the Royal  Commission on Agrioulture in which  recommendations were mad* to the  government to render assistance in the  establishing of market* similar to that  given farmers' co-operative organisation*.  Replies were read from the Hon. Sam  Hughes regarding the proposed drill  hall. Colonel Hughes wrote regretting  that, owing to the fact that this was  a very lean year the Kelowna drill  ball would have to stand over for the  present, but he assured the Board that  he would use every endeavor to see  that an appropriation wa* made for  the erection of a building next year.  Th* secretary read a letter that bad  been sent to the Attorney General urging the need of more adequate court  bouse accommodation in Kelowna. Thia  letter had been accompanied by a  photograph showing th* obsolete nature of tbe present structure.  Tn* Hon. W. J. Bowser whin promising further consideration of this  matter stated that a* the year was  one of retrenchment with th* government held out little hape that anything would be done toward* the erection of a building at present.  With regard to the new post office,  Mayor Jones stated he had received a  letter informing him that aa soon as  the pressure of business of th* s*s*Ion  at Ottawa wa* relieved, plans and specifications for tn* new building would  bo attended to.  Tha provincial aecr.tary had acknowledged the receipt of tbe Board's communication regarding the amendment  to the Game Act allowing Indian*  to  The president brought in a recommendation from the executive that the  board, owing to tbe small grant from  the oity council this year, accept Mr.  Beaver Jones' offer to continue to act  a* secretary at the salary of $75 per  month and to give him permission to  devote half of the time he had hitherto devoted to the Board to other work  outside of real estate, suoh arrangement to take effect from June firat.  The recommendation was endorsed by  the melting.  Reference was    made'   to th* large  last year, and mean* were discussed as  to the collection of these. It was finally arranged that the president snd  secretary ahould personally interview  the delinquents.  The president drew attention to the  fact that steps were being taken in a  neighboring city to reduce inauranoe  rates. Nothing had been done in Kelowna for years although aU the time  improvement* in fir* protection had  been going on. He suggested that the  Board, or City Counoil invite Mr. A.  W. Boss, secretary of the Fir* Underwriters, Vanoouver, to visit th* oity.  Kelowna wa* paying out in the neighborhood, of $60,000 per annum in premiums, and he thought the time was  ripe for some concessions from tha  companies. The secretary was instructed to. consult with the various ' insurance agents in the city, and also  to .write Mr. Ross inviting him to  visit Kelowna.  WILL SPEND $1500 ON BEAR  CREEK ROAD  In response to an urgent request of  the Board of Trade, Mr. Hamilton  Long came through irom Vernon yesterday afternoon to discuss tbe situation of the Bear Creek road with the  road* committee and the delegation  from that distriot that had waited upon the Board.  Th* matter was gone into thoroughly, and Mr. Lang intimated that ha  would recommend the Publio Work*  Department immediately expending  $1500 on thia work.  Thi* will meet the pressing requirement* of tha resident*, and Mr. Lang  wa* thanked by Ihe delegates and th*  road oommittee for pivinr (he matter  such prompt attention.

Sutherland having resigned from hi*  position a* chief, his place being filled  by It. W. Thomas, who oommenoed his  duties yesterday'morning.  In many respects the new chief is  well qualified to take charge of th*  policing of the oity, being a man of  wide knowledge of polioe work, aed  having had many years of practise! experience both in the ranks and i.a an  officer. He ia a Welshman by birth,  and a native of Cardiff. He ha* had  a most interesting career which has  carried him into many parts of the  world.

Later he went. to China, entering the  Shanghai Municipal Police, where he  served twelve years. Shanghai includes amongst it* hugh popu'ation  some 14,800 Europeans and its polioe  force 5000 strong, is modelled'on the  English system.

He also served several year* in the  mounted police of the International  Settlement, Shanghai.  He has travelled extensively and has  made a close study af the polioe systems of London Paris, Australia, New  Zealand and Japan.

The new steamer which has been  built by the Canadian Padfio Railway  oompany for their Okanagan Lake service was launensd Tueshey Aftero*>n  at the Landing. Owing to tb* soft  nature of the ground at the aKpway  the guide* became somewhat displaced,  with the result that the vessel stuck in  the ways. This caused considerable  disappointment to those who had travelled uu the lake and. who had anticipated an enjoyable trial run. Th*  Reoord, however, was informed by  Captain Gore on Wednesday morning  that the steamer had now been freed,  and the finishing touches to the boat  were beinj proceeded with.  The christening ceremony was gracefully performed by Mrs. J. I. E. Corbet!, daughter of Captain Gore, the  company's superintendent of lake  steamer services. Among those present wire the Hon. Prioe' Ellison, minister of finance and agriculture, Mr.  W. F. Peter*, genir 1 sip'iin'.cnlent,  Mr. J. M. McKay, district superintend -  int, and a large number of Kelowna  residents.  The new vessel, which was named the  Sicampus, is 200 feet long, 39 feet  beam, and has a draft of 8 feet. She  has bean fitted with compound engines  which will develop a speed of 17 to 18  miles aa hour. The new oraft will  take the place of the Okanagan, which  has for so long done such yeoman service, and wi'l b* commanded by that  popular skipper. Saptain Estebrook.

Captain Gere stated that the Okanagan would continue to act as an auxiliary. >.It was expected, .he said, that  the new .'.earner would be put into  commission about the commencement  of July.  As Health Resort Kelowna's  Climate is Unexcelled  INTERESTING COMPARISONS WITH SOME OF BEST KNOWN WORLD'S  TOURIST CENTRES.  That   the   wonderful   possibilitie* of  Kelowna as a health resort art    not  felly .appreciated was forcefully.  brought to the minds of the members  of the Board of Trade at Tuesday eve-  uing's meeting by Mr. R. B. Kerr who  gave an interesting comparison of  Kelowna's dry and exhilerating cKmat*  aa compared with some of the principal health resorts of the world.  About seven year* ncro he said, a  large number of retired people from  the prairie* poured into Kelowna, and  it wa* then generally considered that  Kelowna had a great future a* a residential centre. This belief wa* entirely justified by fact*, for Kelowna had  a olimate which would give it a very  high plaoa, among th* health resorts ol  the world if the people would awake  to their opportunities.  Kelowna had only twelve inches of  rainfall (including melted snow) in the  year. Thar* w*a only on* place in  the whole of Europe ai* dry a* that���  vis, Madrid. In spite ol its arid belt  there are only * few plaoes in tho  United States as dry sa Kelowna. Out  of 117 meteorological stations kept  by the United States government, only  ���even had a* low a rainfall as Kalowna. Several great American health  resort*, whioh were famous throughout  th* world, such as Denver, Los Angeles, and Salt Lake City, were considerably wetter than Kelowna. All thaw  plaoes were boomed for their dry climate, and had for that reason become  great cities.  They wero only two places in Canada as dry as Kelowna, vis, Kam  loops, with a rainfall of 11 inohes and  Spsnco'a Bridge, with a rainfall of ft.  The latter place did not pretend to  have any prospects as a town, and  Kamloops, although it had one inoh  loss rainfall than Kelowna, was at a  disadvantage in all other respect*.  Kelowna was the plaoe in the whole  of Canada which best combined dryness with warmth. Everywhere else in  Canada the dry plaoe* were extremely  cold, as on the prairies; and the warm  place* wen extremely wet. Vanoouver  was warm, but had an appaHiag rainfall, amounting to 64 inches in the  year. Vanoouver was the wettest  place of any importance north of the  tropics, either in. Europe, Asia or America. Victoria was much drier than  Vanoouver but that was all that  oould be said for itt Victoria had a  rainfall of 28 inches, which would be  considered very wet nearly everywhere  els*. Viotoria had a wetter climate  than London, Paris, Berlin, Vienna or  St. Petersburg, yet none of the** places had ever been called dry. 'I here  never Wa* a health resort in thi  world ������ wet as' Victoria, not to  speak ot Vancouver.  As for tbe plaoes In eastern Canada  they wen all extremely wet ������ well  a* extremely cord. Kelowna and     its  ioinity, together with Kamloops wars  the only plaoes in Canada which had  any pottihle future as health resort*.  There wan many old and invalid Canadians who were too patriotic to abandon their own oountry, and suih people were anxious above all things to  find a dry, sunny and warn place in  Canada, in whioh to live. Then would  soon be large numbers of Canadians  fc ing a pleasant home in their own  country. For all time to come they  would have to choose between Okanagan Lahe and Kamloops. Most of them  would choose Okanagan Lake and Ktiowna, owing to its grovraphioal position would always b* th* hub of Okanagan Las*.  It might be said that Kalowna was  sometime* cold in winter. It wa* not  ! colder, however, than some ot the vary  'greatest American health retorts. In  j Denver the temperature went down  l to 9$ below *ero, and in Salt Lake  city to 20 below.  Kelowna had therefore an absolute  certainty ol becoming '^e eie.it health  resort of Canada, and it would in time  have thousands ot tourists and retired  resident*. All that was needed was to  get the people to wake up and make  full use oi their opportunities. vay ^.yky iiyst, ...'���."���as;  rt***iiBlaWS*  KELOWNA  RECORD  I* ������������ *�� ����� *��,*��� ** ��  PROFESSIONAL AND  BUSINESS CARDS  BURNE & TEMPLE  Solicitor*,.

Last week Mr. Ii,��y. j  Crowley, who has always taken U.e  keenest interest in the public .?i ;,  and the improving an., beautifying of  it, look the trouble to plant, at !<is  own expenBC, a number of primn,8j3  nlong the shady margin of one of <hj  drained sloughs, an ideal place ter  ih.B pretty plant to flourish. They did  not get a chance, however, for on tne  very next day, and in broad daylight, |  some contemptible sneak thief dug  thorn oit and carried them off.

CA1.GAKY OIL BOOM  Kclowna, in common with the whole  of I'mmdit. conrratulutes (-algury on  her good fortune. Since thu strike of  oil in the Dingman well., seven days  ago, the excitement over the situation  appears to be growing mther than  abating. Strangers h ive liter.Hy  been pouring in by hundreds daily,  und a wholu train oi American and  Canadian financiers has just arrived.  Kelowna is intimately ussociatod with  Calgary as it ib one of hor principal  markets, nn I nn.' n<l;l.ti(,n il prosperity  of the prairie city is bound to he n-  i lee ted here in the way of inerotsed  consumplionof Okunagnn fruit and  produce.  Hut while much of the excitement  s possibly justified, a note of warning  is nosded against reckless speculation.  In this connection the ('a)gnry llenld  which has from thefirat dom its ut*  most to crush wild-cntting iu oil  shares, remarks:  The production of oil must now  be regarded as a local industry, and  must take its place among tho ordinary commercial enterprises of thi�� part  of the Dominion. vMuoh money will be  made, and much, it is to be feared,  will be lost because of it. Any unreasoning enthusiasm Can only result  in trouble to many. The Herald earnestly repeats its many warnings to its  readers not 4o speculate in oil stocks I  with money that they cannot afford to  lose, iin'l urges them to consider care*  fully the character and reliability of  the individual to whom thny entrust  their cash. ,  It is fortunate for Calgary that the  oil boomers were not allowed to have  their way eight months ago, Had they  been allowed it, Calgary would probably have been broke today. instead  of being in a reasonable position to  take advantage of developments. It  It will be well lor the city and for  Alberta if the.public will Continue to  exercise care and moderation in Its  attitude towards this subject."  say that the light and water were  the two best paying propositions that  the oity. had. They were paying dividends on their investment, and to increase their efficiency was merely an  increase to the revenue derived from  that source.  Alderman Sutherland prefaced his remarks by stating that the question of  an addition to,the power plant had  been taken up quite earlyjin the year.  Tho Rolgo-Conadian company, ho said,  advised then that they had an hydroelectric scheme under consideration and  desired the counoil to postpone thoir  proposition until the company found  out what they wore able to do; but  after waiting a considerable time the  company advised them that they were  not in a position to go ahead with  their projeot.  Then their engineers came to tho city  and put the prop,' ition before them  with a view of course of the council  taking it up themselves, which they  had declined to do.  Probably it would be'Well, said the  councillor, to give our reason for this,  According to the engineers report this  installation was to cost 1127.101'. A  certain amount of money was to be  paid for expenses nlready incurred nnd  for water records. Ii was safe to say  that when .the work was completed it  would run up to about 8150,000. Interest and sinking fund    an  8150,000  n    twenty     year    debentures would  amount to about 915,000 and with an  output of 300,000 kilowats wo dd m-3an  cost of five cents per kilowat as a  capita   expense.    To this would    have  to be added the cost that had .already  j been incurred  in connection  with  tho  'plant, salaries, . office expenses,     etc.,  [which would run up aboit four '.'enis,  making  tho  cost' nt the power  plant  nine cents, nnd us there wus at lotwt  a twenty per cint.   loss in distribution  this would i��rlQg the cost a little over  eleven cents,  which of course made it  i prohibitive.    So  for that    reason  the  scheme was not taken up.  I   Then the next alternative was either  ��� Public meeting, Galley 2 ���  a Diesel oil, or a steam engine, nnd  -in that connection n goocj many things  had to be considered. They went vt.'y  carefully into the mutter and Alderman Sutherland said he would give  thein a few details off-hand..  Tho present by-law was for $12,000.  Fifteen years interest and' sinking fund  at II i��r cent on $12,000 was $1,320  per annum. Dividing that by the pro-  sent output of current, 300,000 kilowats, it gave them a per capita cost  of .44 cents. The plnnt was 225 horse  power. That with the ovorload that  a steam plnnt can -carry would run  up about the capacity of n 300 .horse  power Diesel plnnt, Ol such a plant  they had obtained figures, and this  would be ubout $27,000. To Instal  this plant there would hive to he an  addition to the building. This would  mean a further *>5,000, making tho total cost of the Diesel unit $32,000.  Klevtn per cent on $3t,000 in $3520  per annum." Divided hy the output of  current 300,000 kilowats, this Wo ltd  give them 1.173. That would givo  them.a comparison-us to the por capita cost .44 in regard to the  steam .plant and 1.173 for a Diesel oil  engine. (  Turning to the question of fuel1, the  alderman stated that at the present  it was a difficult matter to get coal  nnd they. would not be ablo to , got  coal cheaper for n year or more. At  Princeton, ho said, there was a mine  turning out a rather n> I nihility of  steam coal, capable of generating  about 7 pounds of, steam per pound  of coal. The efficiency of their present machinery wns 21 pounds, so that  three pounds of this coal would pro  duee ono horse power j er nou . From  information they had gathered this  coal could be laid down at about |5  |nr ton* probably less. Taking it  large quantities and figuring out the  freight for a distance of 100 miles they  nrr,iyed at that figure. It would cost  three-quarters of a cent to produce one  horse power per hour, or one cent per  kilowat per hour. If thoy added that  one cent to what they already had,  namely .44, it would give them a total of 1.44 cents.  In reference to a f)iesol engine it  was claimed that their efficiency was  three-quarters of a cent per kilowat,  and half a pound of-oil per horse power. Taking oil at 130 per,ton thit  would mean 5 oents per horse power*  or two-thirds ol a cent per kilowat.  If they added two-thirds of a cent to  what they nlready had thoy would find  that the cost of the Diesel oil engine  ���the capital cost, and fuel��� would  amount to 1.84 cents and that of  steam to 1.44 being four-tenths of a  cent' in favor of steam.  There wore other conditions in con*  nection with steam. If th\v started  with a Doisel engine, later on that  would have to be followed by another  and that would, of course mean taking  out tne present steam pump and. installing electrically driven appliances,  which would mean additional expense.  Therefore their present plan was  this: If they did ���not get hydroelectric power, to put in a 235 horse power! vertical engine, whieh cauld be installed at the present, time at a mini*  mum of expense and which would likely do them for four years', and if they  did not get cheaper power at the end  of that time, their intention was to  put in another unit of about 500 horse  power���the most up-to-date, they could  get in the line of steam, possibly a  turbine; and'it was also the intention  by that time to take out the first two  of the present bank of boilers on which  which the steam procure 'was rather  low and put in up-to-date water tube  boilers with supcr-heattd steam' contrivances. That with the rotary en*  gine would give an efficiency of probably two pounds of coal' per horse  power, and just as soon as thay got.  that they wore getting down to tho  efficiency of a Diesel oil engine.^       >  The Diesel engine was particularly  useful in connection with marine work  where the great object Was economy in  space; but taking 'the extra capital expense with the i Diesel proposition,  even if thoy eliminated certain employees, it wns very doubtful if thoy  could ever get. down to a point at  which thoy could compote with an up-  to-date steam plant.  With reference to the present cost of  producing current the speaker .itatcd-  that it was almost impossible to separate the electrical part of the plant  from the water works. They had only  got an approximate coBt of what was  belonging to electric light and water  works because they used the same  boilers Tor both, but he took the electric end lis representing s'.x.y percent.  That would mean thoy wore paying interest and sinking fund on $5074,  which at the' present output came to  1.891 cents. Their fuel cost WaB .85  cents, wages 1,185, office and other  expenses 1.208, making a totaV. of 5.134  As he had said before, that, was the  cost of tiie' electric current at the  power house as it went out of the  generator. Taking the twenty per  cent., distribution loss, it would mean  that the current at present was costing ubout C.4 osnts to the distributor  That was including the interest und  sinking fund on the present debentures  As he had remarked at the annual  meeting, the term of those debentures  was rather too long. They started off  with 50 year debentures, and it was  I'jkely some of the machinery would be  scrapped in a few years.  If the 500 horse power engine he had  mentioned was put in one of the present engines would be taken out, probably the 150 horse power unit. That  meant 30 years before tho termination  of tho first debentures, with whioh it  was purchased. To get the correct  estimated cost thoy had to add to thie  0,4 additional sinking fund or depreciation to bring it down to the proper  length of debenture term; so it would  be quite safe to say that tha current  at the present time was costing about  7�� centB.  In reply to Mr. D. Leckie, Alderman  Sutherland stated tnat $12,000 did  not cover a new boiler, it was the intention to run with the three boilers  they had, for tho present. It was  also their intention, when anew boiler was put in to put in one that waB  up-to-date, and which would carry a  steam pressure of 150 to 160 pounds.  The engine thoy were getting was designed to carry this heavier load.  Mr, l.eckic: "As far as - I am concerned, from what I have heard tonight I n>u thoroughly satisfied with  tho course suggested, and I move that  the meeting pledges its support to the  bylaw."   This was carried.  Alderman Copeland in speaking in  conned ion with the by-law for road  making machinery laid that after three  yours experience on road building In  Kelowna he found it was absolutely  necessary that the city should1 have a  steam roller. It had at first been the  intention to secure the government  roller. They would remember thoy had  thnt roller two years ago, tho city  paying for the engineer and running  expenses. It had occurred to the  speaker early in the season that it  might be wise to make a similar arrangement with the government, and  not to purchase a roller this year..  Tbe matter had been taken up... with  tho Hon. Price Ellison, who had referred it to Mr. Hamilton Lang, the  foad superintendent. Mr. Lang had  written' them asking $10 per day for  the use of the rollers' They had also  to engage the government engineer -nt  a cost of $5 per day and supply an  extra man. That would have run the  expenses very high indeed, about 823  to 994 a day.  The roller that hia committee proposed purchasing had hewn in Kelc.vna  long enough to enable them to arrive*  at an approximate cost. It wodd  be neosssary to engage two men, one  (Continued on Page Nine)  TH01tebXY|MAY tt, J9U  "'^T'/'- ' ��� ������ ^iijiii^iiLnj   iiimita ���.!,�����������  P.O. Box 12  E.

Away WUfc Loot  CLEAN  UP 16000 FROM POST OF-  FICB SAFE  Up to the present the burglars who  carried out tne sensational robbery of  the post offioe at Pentioton last Thursday morning are still at large, though  the po'ioe ore actively engaged in following up several important elues. It  is believed tint the men made south  by the auto stage to Keremeos taking  train there.  It appears from fuller information  available thi* week that the robbery  took place in the early hour* of last  Thursday morning under cover of a  heavy rainstorm. The burglar* forced  an- entrance to tbe, post offioe, and  after blowing the safe and rifling it of  currency amounting to nearly S6O0O,  made good their escape.  Some time earlier the sat* at the  Penticton Steam ' Laundry was alto  blown open and the contents taken,  but in this case only a small sum uf  money was secured.  Entering the post office the burjLvs  tried to fores up the wicket on the  registered mail side with [ a jim iiy.  The wicket held, however, and the  door was tried I with better success, entrance to the rear office: being gained  by the simple expedient of forcing back  the catch on the Yale loek. Once in  the' offioe the rest was easy. The combination handle was knocked off' the  safe and after plugging the seams and  around the door with soap, a heavy  charge was placed, and th* safe blown.  Tho concussion that followed nust  have been terrific, for the safe door  was shattered to atoms. The stove,  which wa* directly in front, and about  ten feet away from the safe, was.  knooked over and the fireproof lining  of the door was driven into the opposite wall in small particle*. After  the robbery an exit waB made through  the rear door of the post offioe, the  burglar carefully closing the door behind him and snapping the yale ,ock.  The burglary was discovered by the  assistant postmaster, and advices word  telegraphed to the police authorities in  all the principal towns of tbe vally,  a* well a* to southern points, and  various lines were thrown out in hope  of getting some'trace.  The stolen money consisted of 16,000 -  in bill* of ten denominations, whioh  were consigned from Vanoouver to one  of. tne local branch banks, and riso  about 1900 In customs receipts rnd  money belonging personally to Po it-  master HoTntyre.  More modest modes were urged on  the designers and makers of women's  olotheeoy the representatives of 15,000  Cleveland women last week. This aotion was taken at a meeting of representatives of 50 women'* ohrbs in the  oity federation. Other state* are expected to pass the same resolution,  whioh will be given it* final vote at  the Chicago biennial convention of the  federation in June.  ulBTIIMI  New Boxes for Rural  Mail Deliyeiy  LARGE ENOUGH TO HOLD PAR-  - CEL8 AS WELL AS LETTERS  Ofico and Shop:  Coatee, Edwards 6t Gowen Garage       KELOWNA, B.C.    ,  High-Class White Rocks  , .  ���- ���i  mm   .  , umU*.

SUICIDE AT SUMMERLAND  The Vernon oity oounoil has decided  to make a grant of $750 to the Vernon board of trade for this year and  a donation of $208 to the.fund being  raised by the Vernon fire brigade for  their annual oriebration on:June 3.  A sad tragedy occurred at.Summer-  land last week when Mrs. Frank Whitfield committed suicide, by drinking  carbolic acid.  Mr. and Mrs. Whitfield mid llvirron  now aged twelve, have been residents  of Summerland for some few years. It  appears that for somo time Mrs. Whitfield has been much worried by the  talk of some residents in the neighborhood, and lately her husband received  an anonymous letter. Husband' and  wife were on good terms, but the letter very much upset Mrs. Whitfield and  preyed on her mind to such an extent as to cause her to commit the  dreadful act which ended her life.  Her little son returning from school  discovered the body of his mother,  and he at once went and retched his  father from tiie blacksmith shop where  he worked. The woman had been  dead some two or three hours. Beside  her was an empty bottle of carbolic,  two small bottles of chloroform, and  two letters. One was addressed to her  husband, telling him she was taking  her own life, and another to a woman  friend, giving directions for her funeral and tne disposal of her effects, etc.  A resolution urging the establishment of a Customs house at Pentioton  to handle the business for the southern Okanagan, which at the present  time goes to Kelowna, was the moat  important matter considered by tho  Board of Trade at the meeting of that  organization last weak.

KELOWNA   RECORD  THURSDAY, MAY 21, 1914  Development of the  Canadian Northern  ITS BEARING ON THE PROGRESS  OF CANADA  There is always to be found another  aids to a story. It seems somewhat  astonishing that in the flood of discussion sweeping the oountry concerning the Canadian northern and its.application to Ottawa for assistance in  fin-anting to complete its trans-continental system, so little has been  brought out regarding the work a road  of nearly, 10,000 miles has don* in.elevating Canada in the eye* of nation*,  r.nJ in the development of this Dominion's natural resources, from Atlantio  to Pacific. It has constructed���well,  rapidly and economically���a transcontinental line with termini at Atlantic  and Paclliu tidewater, and with th*  easiest gradients ol any road of similar size in the world. The ramification oi branches ;whioh serve as "feeders" to the main line, extend for thousands of miles. When ihe C. N. 11..  system goes into operation across the  Dominion it wilt be the first transcontinental in the history of railroading  on this continent to enter ihe larger  phase of service having its own feeding lines to collect goods from local  districts in all parts of Canada, and  bring them to the through cross-continent line for transport to either ocean.  That fact is noteworthy. It clearly  shows the brushing aside of the temptation to mull a single line across the  Dominion, and the adoption of the  sound policy of conitructing looal lines  and opening" new territory before extending Ihe main road alon/ the route  chosen for it lontr. long before. Great  care always preceeded the building of  any of these branch lines, and so excellent was the judgement that today  all sections af the Canadian Northern  exhibit signs of healthy growth ond  still brighter prospects for the years  to come.  In its beginning the Canadian Northern was a provincial road, contained  in the limits of old Manitoba. Then it  became inter-provincial, then national  and lastly an imperial project, with a  line of steamers (from Great Britain to  Canada, a line nearly completed across  the continent and the prospect of a  fleet on the Pacific to complete the  chain ol communication from the old  land to Asia and the .possessions lying  under the Southern Cross. For olMime  to come, when its builder* ar* for  gotten, it will go on with the appoint  ed task of transporting the agricultural producta of the west to both  ocean, and on to a h��n -r-. waiting  world, the products of the industrial  inst, to the vast market of the west;  the wealth of mine, for*3t, rivers and  lakes, to concentrator, mill and market.  There are three big aspects of the  Canadian Northern to be considered  aud weighed carefully before any decision can be reached as to its liene-  ficient relations with the people of  Canada. These are; its work aa pioneer and blazer of new trails; its method oi populating or assisting to populate the areas it opened up; its policy  of development of the natural resources its lines brought within reach of  the general public. The first of these  ia In closa communion with tha lit*  and prosperity of all new countries in  which classification Canada still remains; the second and third hold the  key lo the expansion of the areas served, in addition tn determining in a  large sense the future of the railway  which performs that service.  The C. X. R., speaking literally, is  best known west of Port Arthur.    Its  lines    in western   Ontario, Manitoba,  Saskatchewan and Alberta total today  approximately    five thousand     mile*.  From that far Hung section of ths Dominion we should'look for opinions aa  to the pioneering character of the Canadian Northern or otherwise, not only  at Ihe time of its inception but   right  on (loin to the present.     Any honest  minded man who was in the west  in  lffflfl will confirm the statement that,  when ronstrucion wo* commenced upon  the first hundred mile* of th* C.N.R.,  ���from the' vlMnge of Gladstone to th*  site nf Dauphin, in Manitoba���in that  year, ihe folks were not few who dubbed the builders, aa'.visionaries,     and  classified the road as one that would  not pay because the   areas it   opened  up were not populated. No other company would build the line, yet it paid  th* firat year and when the members  of the legislature of the province    of  Manitoba want up to Dauphin by special train in October 1897    they    were  fired with enthusiasm over the enterprising town which bad been a   field  of golden grain a short year    before.  The people of Dauphin drew the    attention of the law maker*.ton rumor (  of spl jodld fertility a* applied to th* (  country in   th*   valley of th*    Swan  River.    The legislator* behaved.    Th*  Canadian Northern opened it up     to  s-'ftlemsnt.    There I* no need    ��urdy  to go on reciting tsstsaes* which ar*  history in th* w**t.   A glance at *tiy  map of the IfcMaWoo. ��ho*ing     rail  way lines will convince any obsor.or  of the determination to pioneer evidenced by tho builder!! of the C.N.R.  Theirs are the northern lines. They  traverse the rich vnlley of the Saskatchewan to Edmonton: go north from  Winnipeg almost to the upper end of  Lake Winn'ipegosis and then turn went  to Prince Albert, opening to settlement  nil that rich bett of diversified land,  I which one day will be the agricultural  backbone of this Dominion; another  line swings west from the Manitoba  capital through the prairie section,  touching Brandon, Heirina, Saskatoon  and finds its pnnent terminals at  { Prince Albert. These are the so-called  ma'n linos. They have been connected  | up by so many branch linos that the  effect is a veritable net work,both in  the open prairie districts and northern  mixed farming lands.  By reason of its construction .'nto  areas where no roads before existed the  Canadian Northern, in the west alonj  has opened lands for settlement to  tens of thousands and baa given the  blessing of new environment to other  tens of thousands of aliens who nave  sought Canada's shores in search of a  new home, and a bettor homo than  ever    was theirs    before  Referring still to the western, provinces, tho C.N.U., has addtxl to the map  of the Dominion some six hundred new  towns west of the city of Port Arthur  which place was transferred from a  stagnant municipality into an enterprising town by the entrance of the  railway after the C.P.R. hud departed  to allow it to die of negleot. It Jb  not too much to Bay that Winnipeg  owes one third of hor modern growth  to Ihe Canadian Northern, while the  cities of Saskatoon, North Battlefard  and Edmonton 'was very frankly results of tho advent of C.N.R. lines.  Edmonton was a fur trad'n? centre  without a railway until the Canadian  Northern extended in, and the arrival  of tho steel horse changed the place  from an interesting town of 2,500 into  a bustling oity of 10,000. Saskatoon  languished until galvanised into, activity by C.N.R. lines, and North Battle-  ford was but a site on bald prairies  when that company laid its slool  through. Thero iB not space to tell  of the riso of tho hundreds of other  towns who owe thoir existence to the  extension of the C.N.R. line and their  continued prosperity to the operation  of the road. In tho evolution of the  country, many of theso centres will  rise to the eminence of cities and  they may even come lo forgot tho civ  torpriso that called them into existence and fostorcd their oarly struggling days.  It will lie remembered that the Canadian Northern opened the vast, Saskatchewan voile,' to settlement. No'.ura  has provided the fertility. The Canadian Northern demonstrated its existence by making the count rv accessible  and by placing on the land settlers,  who, by actual urop production, proved Ihe falsity of charges scattered  broadcast of unfitness of climate and  soil for permanent agriculture. But  that is only a portion of what the  road has done towards the settling of  the western country and the creation  nf an overwidening market for Ihe  industries of the east. The Canadian  Northern hos spent dnr'v '������- 'art fifteen years, more than three million  dollars in the furtherance of immigration .work, supplementing the efforts of  the Dominion government In securing  the right kind of immigration for the  greater development of the country.  It* extensive organization seeks out  the ambitious who desire to build a  home on land to be their own in Canada, the domestic, and the artisans  that are called for by th* industrial  concerns. Its officers are well informed and its advice is sane.  Thero remains the last of the three  aspects set out for consideration of  the policy of development of natural  resources and its relation to tho life of  state that the Canadian Northern has  the nation, and of the railway. To  make development of natural resources  by new line* wherever possible, a  plank in Its construction policy is not  to make the claim that it was don*  out of charity. Far from it. Exploitation of resource* mean* added tonnage  to th* railway and that ia what ia  sought in the last analysis. Modern  railway building has become a tremendous scientific losk. In addition to  the battle of grades, there must be  considered lire ability of the districts  served to produce steady revenue in  tbe shape of loads for box, flat and  passenger oars. That is why the CN.  R. extended into the rich new northern areas of tho western provinces,  where the right kind of sottlemcnt policy has resulted in steady returns in  goods for shipment to tha lends wn*r*  timber abounded, and to area* where  the economic ore* awaited the boon of  transportation. No one will deny the  vital relation of thi* ol*** ol development work to tho general prosperity of  th* country, *nd the wisdom ol the  C.N.R. policy will show up to better  advantage in ib* year* that ar* (till  ahead. It has given the country the  rich lend* ol tho Saskatchewan River  vallev. and the splendid rolling lands  In th* north of the proving**, Vani-  [tojba, Saskatchewan and Alberta,  I which are ideal for the practice of  I mixed farming. It has opened up the  ' great timber riches of the north and  ' brings out the iprodUots of mills whioh  ar* among the largest in the world.  The vast iron deposits of the Matta-  win and Atikekan Ranges come into  the national arena when the C. N. R.  constructed its line from Winnipeg to  th* head af the lakes, as recently as  1902. The Pacific section of. the transcontinental will traverse an area  known to be rich in timber and minerals while tbe line which will connect  the west with the east opens up the  Clay belt, back >of Lake Superior, with  all its wealth of timber, its water  powers ot its fertile soil. Canada already has had a vision of what this  belt means in the way of agriculture  through the development that has taken place in the Timislcaming country.  Essentially the problems solved there  are the some as those whioh wilt bo  , mot with in the lands opened by the  i C.N.R,, and there is not the slightest  doubt that this country, long regarded  as waste, will be the home of thousands of prosperous tillers of the soil  . while market towns will spring up at  intervals all through the district.  Competent engineers have estimated  that the Clay Belt will support two  million people. The race there will be  strong and self reliant and not among  tho least of the citizens of this Dominion.  I That main line of the C.N.R., between ithe that and the west will also  commercialize some other, important  natural resources. ' Close under the  portals,of parliament itself, between  Ottawa and Portage du Fort there  are many potential industries in the  deposits of phosphates of lime, Felspar, mica, graphite, and tho iron deposits at Bristol���all dormunjt for tho  lack of transportation facilities the C.  N.R. will supply. At Portoge du Fort  aro'the finest marble quarries on the  i continent, undeveloped for wont of  railway communication. There iff at'  that point a remarkable wnt?r power  j awaiting.. Rich agricultural areas lie  between Portage du Fort and Pem-  lirokc. nnd in tho valley of tho Pota-  wawa and remarkable stands of pi no  | I iiiiher whioh can be milled locally and  I shipped out on the arrival    of   rapid  . transportation,   to    swell, the lumber  i trade of Ontario and assuage the enormous demand from the older settled  II ortions of tho country. From Pete.-  wawa on to North Bay there will be a  repetition of power development, agricultural settlement, the mining of  economic ores and tho production of  building timber. From North Bay on  up the Sturgeon ond Vermilion rivers,  across the,Sudbury mineral areas, and  two hundred miles beyond to the Clay  Belt, expectant lumbor men, mining  engineers and pioneer farmers, ' will  form an advance guard on the .large  industrial population which will engage  in the work of production upon the  opening of the line through this year.  In Quebec the Canadian Northern has  Ihe Canadian Northern Quebec and tho  Quebec k Lake St. John Railway affording servico between Ottawa, Montreal,, Quebec and also providing rapid transportation for the tremendous  pulp wood resource* and finished products of the northern portion of the  province. In the island of Cape Breton there is the Inverness Railway to  provide transportation facilitie* for  the coal mined there, and in Nova  Scotia the Halifax and South Western  railway serves tho Atlantic const lino  from Halifax to Yarmouth, marketing  the fish brought in at so many points  along that stretch of coast line.  So it goes on. The enterprise has  only been simply sketched here. Some  day then will be a book'written upon  the great transportation system* of  thi* Dominion��� 'or population considered or not thoy are great systems���  and in that publication the Canadian  Northern will - have a proud place-  That not alone because of mere site,  because size. In itself constitutes no  great advantage, (rut because of the  splendid grade* it will have aoroas the  continent, because of the opening of  vast natural resources, and because of  Its achievement in transforming bald  prairie and rolling land into cultivated field* where In early autumn time  golden grain whispers of service to  a hungry world; where the home* ol  successful farmers stand as monuments  of success ia a new land; and whom  fat klne low in contentment on tha  hillsides. The Canadian Northern in  its march of progress established a  new town every few miles, making it  possible for the farmer to market hi*  product* ��nd for the manufacturer of  tho east to bettor distribute his go���Is.  New industries have been fostered and  great trading centres built up. Then  has been development everywhere It  has gone. That statement cannot be  exaggerated in the tight of the simple  fact that in 180(1. its first year th*  C.N.R., handled but 398,060 bushel, of  grain of all kinds. This year, of th*  crop of the western province* alone,  th* Canadian Northern ha* already  moved mora than 70,000,000 bushel*.

Below will be found the item* composing the secretary's report for ths  twelve months ending on April 3Dth  last:  'During the year the union held ten  regular and one executive meeting with  an average attendance of ten member*  present at the regular meetiuj*.  One oopy of *White Ribbon Tiding*"  and One copy of "American Motherhood" was taken by the union, also  ten copies of "Bible Reading*." All  the members.take the "Bulletin."  Devotional, business and educational  sessions have been maintained throughout the year at all meetings and many  interesting addresses were delivered to  the union by; both local and visiting  co-workers, among them being . splendid address by Hrs. Campbell Brown,  a returned Chinese missionary, an address,on "Preventives to Disease by  Miss Forte also proved to be inter sating and instructive. "Economic -waste  of the Liquor Traffic" was the subject  of an address by Mrs. Welsh.  Others to address the meetings during the year were Rev. Main, of Vernon on "Woman Suffrage" and Mrs.  Millie on "Cheerfulness.  Much valuable information was gtin-  ed during the year from paper* rend  by the various members, the most important dealing with the use of th*  cigarette.  Another most important work undertaken by the local W.C.T.U. was the  work among the Chinese, teaching  them in their own homes. Through thia  the union increased their receipts to  the extent of $26.00  A social, held at the home of Mr*.  Cilriin realized 112,60, this was passed  on to the hospital treasury.  The honorary members were given  a most enjoyable evening's entertainment at an "At Home" by Mrs. Harvey.  During the year many interesting  and instructive addresses were delivered before the union by the local Baptist, Presbyterian, and Methodist ministers and many pleasing vocal selections, rendered by the young people.  The union also gathered large quantities of literature which was sent to  the railway camps along with about  20 comfort bags through the kindness  of Mr. Henning. Much literature was  also sent to the looal hospital.  The members.assisted by sonic of ihe  young ladies of the city presented (20  to the provincial treasurer for the  home for friendless women in Vanoouver.  Tho union has increased considerably  in membership during the year and  muoh interest has been displayed by  all.  The treasurer reported that $112.70  waa raised during    the year and that  AN ENORMOUS LOSS OF  MEAT THROUGH DISEASE  The enormous sum of $160,000,000  was the aggregate loss sustained by  the United States in meat animals as  the result of disease and exposure in  1913, according to estimate* announced by the . department of agrioulture.  Losses from disease of oattle, hog*,  and sheep were about $122,000,000 and  losses from exposure of oattle and  sheep about 128,000,000. The loss  meat it is declared would have been  more than sufficient to furnish a normal year's supply 0f meat to the  tire population of the New England  States.  The figures indicate a total loss of  7,005,080 hogs, valued at $73,000,000;  this represents more than one billion  pounds of meat destroyed mostly by  cholera. This loss would have produced nearly 800,000,000 pound* of  dressed meat and lard, whioh the officials say, would have been sufficient to  furnish every family in the United  States, with an average of 44 persona,  about forty pounds. "If there had  been no such loss," it is stated, "probably increasing scarcity of meat would  have been largely prevented."  The hog cholera epidemic of 1013  caused an estimated loss of about  165.000,000. "No other animal disease produces such a loss" says tbe  department. "It is estimated that in  1913 there were 107 hogs lost per  1000 from cholera, and indication*  point to a further increase unless  preventive measures are used. Such  an enormous loss is nothing short of  a calamity." Co-operation of all interests concerned is urc-d to combat  the disease.  'The total loss of oattle from disease and exposure for 1913 is estimated at 1,737,000, valued at $68,611,000  and that of sheep at $8,681,000. The  aggregate losses of farm horses and  mules were 523,000 head, valued at  859,100,000. The losses.of oattle and  ep, however,' were 'less than normal.  The department estimates are based  On reports from its correspondents and  agents in the field.

Manager Kelly's injury forced him  to remain on the bench and Powless  wat again sont behind the plate with  Mclvor on tho firing line for Kelowna,  Eddy and. Pulley were tho battery for  Revelstoke.  'iho Revelstoke players arrived on the  boat and were hurried to the grounds  in autos. They indulged in a brief  workout after which the locals took  the field for a few inutes and the  game was called by Umpire Treadgold  at 4.15.  Only ft medium crowd were on hand  when the game started, many arriving  late, no doubt expecting the boat to  arrive late with the Revelstoke players.  The game was fairly fast and comparatively clean considering the heavy  condition of the field. In many places  the mud was very soft and sticky,  making fast fielding and running impossible. The local boys pulled together nicely and deserved the viotory  over their opponents.  Mclvor pitched n splendid game and  much credit is due Powless for 'he  support he gave "Mac" on the reoaiv-  ing end. Powless is an outfielder and  was. forced to go behind the plate owing to Manager Kelly's injury and it  Ib needless to Bay that the fans, as  well as the players are delighted with  the showing he has made.  Eddy pitched a nice game for the  visitors but waa-givtn ragged support  by his team mates who nre credited  with six errors, most of which proved  costly.

Kevelstoke  Vernon    3  W  3  2  1  0  To the local lacrosse' fans and to  others who have been watching carefully arid with interest the practices of  the looal lacroBse olub at!the park  during the past fortnight it is apparent that Kelowna will bo a strong contender this season for the beautiful  trophies which arc now in the hands  of tho Armstrong club.  On the line up of the locale are  several who nre too well known to the  local followers of the Canadian game  to need any introduction to.the public  among them being Kennedy, G. Fuller,  0 W. Fuller, W. Pettigrew, J. McMillan  0   Hoy and A. McMillan.   These players  0 have distinguished themselves sufficient  1 ly in the past to assure the fans that  their part of the field will be well  looked after.  Among those who have cast their  lot with the local club for this season  are five of tho best amateur players  on the coast, namely Gillanders, who  will be seen nt point, Hill, third home,  Spear, goal, Painter, inside home and  Patterson, second defence, all coming  from tho ohampion V. A. Club.  In the practice, being held at the  park tho work of these fivo men has  been watched with interest and it ia  'safe to say that cleverer stick handling and better all round work has  never been witnessed in this section  of the country on a laorosse field.  The first league game, according to  the present schedule will' be played   at  Armstrong on June 17th and the opening game between the same clubs will  j be played at Kelowna on June 25th.

Tho cups are the Lawson  cup, Holman cup, Vernon News cup,  Vernon Hardware cup and the Shaw  cup, the latter being emblematic of  the amateur championship of the interior.  Armstrong has, as usual a    splendid  and provided plenty of amusement for team and .the bears will have a hord  the largo crowd who were present to ''ght to regain possession of the sil-  witness tho contest. | varware, which, if won by Armstrong  Much rivalry has existed between this year becomes the permanent pro-  theae two clubs and those who antioi- ] P*rty of that olub. It therefore is  paled a   hard   game were not di��aP"  necessary for the Kelowna Jioystowp-k  pointed. Tho clubs fought sternly all  the way and it was not'until the last  inning that the High School succeeded  in wresting a victory. In fact after  the first three innings the Public  School were leading by two runs unci the ninth inning.when the High  School started a batting raUy that  was only headed when they had secured enough rune to win. The final  siore being 11 to 10 in favor of the  High Sohool.  Both the pitchers worked nicely and  were given fair support by their teammates. Until Sutherland weakened in  the ninth it looked like a sure victory  for the Public School, in whioh case  the two clubs would have divided  equally the honor of leading the league  whereas now they must divide honors  with the Ellison club for second place.  The brilliant feature of the game  was a fine rdnning catch by Thayer in  right field, cutting off what looked like  a three-bagger.  The game at Rutland between Until nd *nd Ellison resulted in another  win for the Ellison team by score  of 14 to 7. By winning this contest  they put themselves on an even footing with the Public school team and  with the rapid progress thoy are making it will be necessary for the High  School team to piny hall to retain  their position at the head of the ran*.

SUFFRAGETTE SLASHES     ROYAL  ACADEMY PICTURE  The portrait of Henry James, the  novelist, by John Singer Sargent, an  American artist, hanging in one' of  the galleries of the Royal Academy,  wa* ruined on Monday by a suffragette  who gave the name of Mrs. Wood. The  offender belongs to a group of militants called "Wild Women."  Carrying a butcher's cleaver Jnder  her coat, she approached the painting in quite a casual manner awaiting a chance when the guard waa not  looking. Suddenly she whipped out  the clever, and with swift itrokes  slashed- the picture lo~ribbon�� before  the bystanders seized and stopped  her.  Mr*. Wood was accompanied by a  men who attempted to impede those  who restrained the Woman, and the  crowd turned upon him and gave him  a severe beating. When the polio*  appeared on the scene the badly battered man and Mrs. Wood were handed over to them. The academy was  re-opened to the public only Monday  after being closed for some months,  owing to suffragette outrages.

It would take half a ton of eoal  |perday, which could be purchased at  89.00 a ton to operate the roller, and  let* than 81.00 a day far oil. That  would run the expense up to a little  less than 812 per day, so they would.  see the saving that would'be gained by  having a roller of their own and which  would considerably more than pay the  interest and sinking fund on the pies-  ent investment. Most of those pretent had teen the roller, in operation.  He waa quite satisfied in his own mini I  that it was all right, and wa* up-to-  date in overy respect.  Replying to Mr. Leckie, the speaker  said that the roller would be a saving  of $11.50 per day as oompared to the  government roller.  Mr. F. R. E. DeHart: "How many  day* would the roller be working?"  Alderman Copeland: "About six  week*.".  Mr. DeHart: "Then it would be  cheaper to hire a roller?"  Alderman Copeland: The interest ttnd  sinking fund would only amount to  about $360 per annum, and we would  always have the roller on hand whenever it was needed which was a very  important matter when putting material -on roads.  Mr. Joseph Ball: "In the event of  the by-law not carrying how an you  going to pay for the roller?"  Alderman Copeland: "The manufacturers have taken their chance on  this."  |' In reply to a query by Mr. Ball,  Alderman Copeland stated that there  would be no need to build a house for  the roller, as a cover for the engine  would be provided.

H. DUNN  ^| City Clerk  25-26  rotter was 15 tons, which be considered was altogether too heavy. The  weight ol the roller they proposed purchasing was 10 tons, which he considered would dp th* same work and at  less cost.  Alderman Rattenbury was the last  of the councillors to address the meeting. He briefly apoke in connection  with the auto fir* truck and said thoy  all appreciated the suggestion of the  fire brigade instead of incurring a possible expenditure of $7,000 to $8,000  Thoir request was a very reasonable  one and 82,000 would cover the outfit  including some boa*.  Mr. F. R. E. DeHart spoke of the  excellent work the volunteer fire brigade had done in the past, and ha  made a motion in favor of the by-law.  This was seconded by Alderman Copeland and carried amid hearty applause  for" the fire brigade.  In reply to a question regarding the  sewerage extension tbe chairman stated that the only petition that had  been presented to the council had been  for a sewer in the lane immediately  south of Lawrence avenue running from  Water street between the club and Mr.  Geo. F. James' premises and the oounoil were oommlting with the sewer  engineers in connsction with the matter.  That was the only petition that had  been presented, Hi* Worship stated,  and the counoil would be glad to have  some others so that they oould use  up some of the material that was on  hand. All sewerage extensions would  Come under Jocal improvements.  In reply to a further question the  speaker stated there were estimates on  Ellis street, Bernard avenue, Glenn  avenue, Lawson avenue, Harvey and  Eli avenue and Riohter street, and  also estimates of cost of sewer from  I'endozi street to tbe hospital. Just  Boon aB those petitions were presented in proper form they would receive attention. These extensions  would not be a cost on the oity at  all, but simply on the street that  wouldbe benefitted by the sewer, and  in order to have any ol these sewers  laid it would be necessary for two-  thirds of the ratepayers or . owners  affected, representing at least SO per  oent of the property, to ?ign the petition.  |   Mr. Geo. Meikle: "What about owners who have septic tanks?"  His Worship. "In fronting on the  sewer the property would be assessed  and the owners would be forced to use  the sewer.
