 FEB I 7 1920  lidotoma tUmth-*  ��***  ���\  l-^U*-^u--*,'  VOL. XII.   NO. 14  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 19, l920.-=4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  City Council Sits  in Busy Session  Mayor Gives  Report cf  His  Vist to Victoria���Several Important Matters Handled  The regular meeting of the city  eouncil waa held Monday evening  last in the council chamber.  His Worahip reported that during hia viait to Victoria he interviewed the provincial authorities  in reference to the Better Housing  Scheme, amendmenta to the Municipal Act and renewal of the  foreahore lease to the Kelowna  Growera Exchange.  He had received an assurance  from the Superintendent of B. C.  Soldier Settlement that any reasonable plans and modifications of  the specifications furnished by his  department for houses to be constructed under the Better Housing  scheme would receive the approval of hia department. Mr. J. W.  Jones, M.P.P., was preaent when  thia matter waa diacussed with Mr.  Clark. He had regiatered an objection against the provision of the  Municipal Act governing the assessment of three acre blocks of  land uaed for agricultural purposes. He was informed that the proposed new Municipal Act would  not likely come up thia aession,  but ahould it be taken into consideration he was assured that his  suggestion in teference thereto  would receive careful attention.  With reference to the application of the Kelowna Growers Exchange for renewal of (heir foreahore leaae, the Mayor was given  assurance that in any event no  leaae would be granted covering  land above the present high water  mark. The department does not  wish to grant any lease and have  suggested to the Exchange that  they come to aome arrangement  with the city in reference to this  matter.  Tendera were aubmitted for the  insurance of the membera of the  Fire Brigade. With reference to  these tendera a letter waa received  ' trom the directora of the Brigade  recommending the acceptance of  the Yorkahire Insurance Co., Ltd.'s  tender of $22.50 per member for  twenty members.   This was done.  The Light & Water, committee  were authorized to purchase up to  100 water meters, but not more,  whilst a contract waa aigned with  the Telephone Co. for the installation of a -phone for fire chief  Pettigrew. ,  With reference to the building  at present being used as city police  office, it was stated that the owner  would accept $3,000 for the property. After some discussion it  was decided to close the deal,  and payment to be made at the  rate of $30 per month, with no interest payable on the unpaid balance and, ahould the city desire to  cancel the agreement* after a period of three years, it could do so  bv giving three months notice.  A number of applications for the  position of power house lineman  were received, Aid. Duggan rev  * porting the chief favored that of J.  Symonda, who was appointed at a  salary of $135 per month.  Mayor Sutherland stated that he  had aa yet been unable to obtain  definite information aa to the union acale of wages for the power  house staff.  The tenders for the citv scavenging contract were considered. One  was from G. A. Weir of 45c per  box to be paid at the rate of $150  per month and any balance in excess ot this to be paid at the end  of the year. The other was from  James Coupland, of a atraight salary of $135 per month a'nd the  usual privilege of garbage removal.  The fact that Mr. Weir waa a  returned aoldier was given every  consideration but .as it was estimated that Mr. Coupland's tender  was at leaat $500 below, and also  in view of the latter'a previous  satisfactory aervice during 1914-16  it was decided that the council  would not be justified in accepting  Mr. Weir's tender. The contract  for the year was therefore given tu  Mr. Coupland;  Aid. Rattenbury aaid he had  been approached by a number of  jitney drivers >to raise their trade  license fee to a substantial figure,  say $25, in order to afford them  v*ome measure of protection.   As  Rutland News  (From our own  . r ��� ri -nrlenrt.  An auction sale is announced ot  the eifects of H. E. Leigh, who is  leaving shortly for England.  Mr. Geo Schofield was a passenger for Penticton Tuesday to  attend a convention of Orangemen.  The concert planned for Wedneaday next by the Athletic Club  haa had to be postponed owing to  the prevalence of flu in the district.  Keep the 17th of March open  for the entertainment being airang-  ed by the St. Andrew's Ladies'  Guild, in the schoolhouse. Further  announcement will be made later.  The Young People'a Society  social held last Friday was a very  enjoyable one. Music, readings,  games, &c, passed away a vary  pleasant evening and after this  programme had been exhausted  dancing was started. The next  meeting, on the 27th, will be given  up to religious exercises.  The trenching machine which is  to dig the ditch for draining the  three lakes arrived this week and  an early start is to be made. The  contract for the work haB been let  to J. D. Ross who haa brought his  steam trenching outfit from Skska-  toon. The machine will dig a  trench up to five feet wide and  twenty-five feet deep. This is  much beyond what is needed for  the present {purpose, the average  depth at which concrete pipe is to  be laid being fifteen feet. The  machine weighs upwards of twenty  five tons and needed a special  platform to be built at the track  for its unloading, when it went out  like a huge tank under its own  power to the scene of operations.  About a mile of pipe is to be laid  to afford drainage into Mill Creek.  The cost of the work is being  assessed against the adjacent land  owners, lhe government having  supplied the pipe.  Local Curlers Do - -  Well at Vernon  The two rinks of Kelowna curlers who wept up to Vernon last  week came off with flying colors,  having been successful in carrying  off no fewer than three out of the  six cups, rhree second places, and  also the prize for the grand aggregate. The bonspiel altogether was  a great affair, eleven rinks being  engaged, of which seven were  Vernon men, two from Kelowna,  one from Penticton and one from  Enderby.  The result of all the games is as  follows, the names of the skips,  only being given in each case:���  Grand Challenge Cup, I Reid,  Vernon, 2 Finch, Penticton; Okanagan Cup, I J. M. Harvey, 2 F.  Fraser ; Henderson Cup, I F. Fraser, 2 McCook, Vernon ; Kelly-  Douglas Cup, I Finch, Penticton,  2 F. Fraser; Burns Cup, I F. Fraser, 2 J. M. Harvey ; Consolation  Cup, I Mickleborough, Vernon,  2 Lefroy, Vernon ; Grand Aggregate, I j. M. Harvey.  J. M. Harvey's rink included J.  S. Little, H. Chapin and W. Harvey,  while in Frank Fraser's rink were  D. D. Campbell, B. McDonald and  J. Bowes.  R. W. Ramsay, of Airdrie, Alta.,  came in Monday on a visit to the  diatrict.  .The Occidental Fruit Co.'a warehouse was broken into Tuesday  night, the thieves getting away with  a large quantity of jams, tea, coffee,  and milk. Entry was made bv  breaking the lock of the front  door. No clue has 'yet been discovered as to the culprits.  the maximum fee permitted by  the Act was $10, no action was  taken.  Aid. Shepherd reported that the  Fire Protection committee were in  veatigating the possibility of mak  ing arrangements with the tele  phone company to call all the  membera of the Fire Brigade by  the inseition of one plug on the  receipt of a fire alarm.  The citv clerk reported having  appointed Miss Muriel Crawley as  junior clerk at a aalary of $65 per  month.  Audience Much Enjoy  Hypnotic Entertainment  Subjects Provide More Fun  Than a Chaplin Film  Lota of amuaement of an unusual character was provided on  Tuesday evening when Professor  G. W. H. Reed, a returned man,  gave a display of his occult powers before a large audience in the  Empreas Theatre.  The number of people who  volunteered to act as hypnotic  subjects waa very disappointing,  four young men being assembled  on the atage after pressing invitations from Mr. Reed who promised  that they should be made to do  nothing they might afterwards be  ashamed of. No young ladiea,  however, could be induced to  mount the platfoim.  Prof. Reed opened his enler-  tuinmeht with a brief sketch of  what hypnotism really was, remarking that about one in every  ten of the people he had hypnotised would themselves make good  hypnotists. Mesmerism was to  hypnotism, he said, what a grammar was to a language, and then  proceeded to demonstrate, on the  subjects who performed various  odd movements whilst mesmerized, much to the delight of the  audience.  The entertainer then requested  complete silence from the audience  while he "put them to sleep." In  this he was more particularly successful with two only thc others  presumably not being verv good  subjects; but the others easily  provided sufficient scope for Mr.  Reed and kept the house convulsed for upwards of an hour. Their  antics ranged from imagining them,  selves monkeys to weeping beside  the grave of " the only girl they  ever loved," arid being ship-wrecked. The aching aidea of the audience were relieved from time to  time by the subjects being "brought  to" for a spell, when they' were  loudly applauded for their willingness to be instrumental in providing such an entertainment.  Runaway Results in  Bad Accident  A bad runaway accident took  place yesterday morning resulting  in the serious injury of three Rutland people. Mr. and Mrs. Kemp  were driving in to town when the  team, which was rather skittish,  took fright at aome object along  the roadside in Harvey Avenue,  and bolted. In an effort to pull  them up one of the lines broke,  and the frightened horses thus out  of control, dashed along Ethel  street overturning the rig and  throwing the occupants out. Mr.  Kemp austained a broken shoulder blade and Mrs. Kemp a dislocated shoulder and severe cuts  over the eye, while T. Maxwell,  who had been standing behind the.  seat, severely injured his knee.  The injured people were carried  into the residence of Capt. McLaren  and afterwards removed to the  hospital.  The team continued its career,  jumping a barbed wire fence and  getting badly cut up in consequence.  ���������o   G.W.V.A. Notes  All sweater coats, brooms, etc.  have arrived from Ordnance Storea  The president and secretary were  selected at the last meeting to attend the Okanagan G.W.V.A. con-  ference on Friday next. About  ten branches will send delegates  including Princeton and Keremeos.  Representatives will be chosen to  attend the Dominion convention at  Montreal.  The annual general meeting will  be held on Wednesday, Msrch 3rd  not I Oth, as published last week.  Premier E. C. Drury was elected  in Helton county by a majority of  2,259 ove.r Edward Stephenson of  Toronto, the returned soldier who  opposed the Premier.  Proposes Air Route from  Kelowna to Winnipeg  Bold Suggestion  to Advertise  Kelowna and Okanagan  Capt. E. Hoy, with whose fame  aa an aviator and former local boy  all Kelowna people are familiar,  attended the Board of Trade meeting Tuesday and laid an interesting suggestion be-fore the membeis  which had in view a big boost ot  the lands and producta of the  Okanagan valley and particularly  of Kelowna. ���Briefly the scheme  was to purchaae an aeroplane and  employ a pilot to fly il from Kel-  o'��na to Winnipeg calling at different places on the pranie and distributing advertising matter and  fruit and generally boosting the district amongst the prairie people.  The cost would be about $5,000  but Capt. Hoy (elt sure that by  carrying passengers on lhe wav  the venture could be made self-  supporting. The plan proposed  was to start about June and return  here in the fall to carry passengers  n this distiict. Photographs of the  valley would also be laken which  would be readily inserted in lhe  journals in the States and England.  The scheme had admittedly  many attractive features and a  committee was appointed to confer with Capt. Hoy and report to  th' Board.  Mayor Sutheiland luadelhe suggestion that the fruit shippers  might find such a man useful in a  co-operative scheme of si-llii'rg  fruit on the praiiies.  Mr.   Grote  Stirling  submitted a  ap of (he new road through tlie  Christian ranch handed lo him by  Engineer Gwyer which s-emed lo  show conclusively lhat the road  authorities were justified in the  course they were taking, and that  the agitation against it wns based  upon a misconception.  Mi. Stirling thought, in fact, that  the Board had been in some measure fooled by wrongjinformalionv  and that injustice had been done  road superintendent McAlpine and  engineer Gwyer.  Mr. Pitcairn said the Board had  tried to be very careful in the matter and that the agitation had been  created by certain individual members and not   by   the   Board   as a  hole. Personalities had been indulged in by them which lhe  Board had had to listen to but had  not necessarily cornurred in.  It was decided that the secretary  should write to Mr. Gwyer thanking him for the map and information and regretting the misundei-  atandings.  Mr. Gwyer had also mentioned  that he was urging the Fraser  Valley route for lhe transprovincial  highway, which would link up wilh  lhe route through the Okanagan.  In view of this it was decided to  press strongly for the construction  of the Kelowna-Naramata road and  the following resolttion was adopted:���  In view of the desirability of" providing  for the large amount of road traffic north  and eolith through the Okenagan, without  the inconvenience of croaeing the lake, and  alao beering in mind the prospect of the  Frazer Velley route for the inter-provincial  highway being adopted;  Be it reaolved that the Provincial Gov.  ernment be pressed to provide for the  making of e deteiled survey and estimate  for building the incompleted portion of  the road between Kelowne end Neremata.  The resolution was also passed  as follows dealing with the proposed new post office:���  Whereas the post office in the City of  Kelowna, B.C., serves a population of up  wards of 5,000 people ; whereaa the pre  aent poat office is totally inadequate for  the present needs end convenience of the  public ; and whereaa the public apace  available in the preaent post office which  serves the above-mentioned population,  end wherein Urge numbera of people  have to wait daily for their mail, has a  floor apace of six feet by forty feet with  an indentetion of two feet by nine feet at  the wicket ; and whereas the Dominion  Government haa for several yeers been in  posaession of a vacant lot purchased for  the purpose of erecting a poal >ffice thereon, and an appropriation for the purpose  of e building hes been carried for ward in  the government estimetes for a number of  yeara ; and wheieas the Federal Government is paying rent for the accommodation of the Poatal, Customs and Telegraph  and Telephone services in three different  buildinga, all of which would be more  conveniently end economically conducted  in one building ; and whereas during the  year 1919 over 2,000 postal parcels had to  be conveyed to end fro between the customs office and poat office, entailing both  work and expenae ; and whereas the customs receipts during the year 1919 are in  of the receipt! for the year 1918-19  High School Notes  By Special Correspondent  So many of the pupils have  been absent this week that nothing  much has happened. But gradually  they are coming back, after their  little brothers recover froir. the  chicken pox and let them out.  It fills our teachers with sadness to  aee so many empty desks.  The picturca that were laken of  the different classes some weeks  ago (or is it months) appeared on  the scene last Thursday. Most of  the pupils bought the picture of  their own class, that they might  take it out and look at it after long  long yeriis. and aee the faces of  their dear, dear chums and their  dear, dear teachers.  Perhaps we haven't forgotten  by this time that one day last week  was St. Valentine's.

Healtb Officer Advises  City "Closed Down"  A sudden outbreak of "flu" or  of something resembling it has  caused a good deal of consterna  tion in the city this week, especial  ly ns it has spread with alarming  rapidity. Nearly every second  person one meets on the stieet has  some member of the household  stricken, and in some cases the  whole family is suffering from the  insiduous disease. Reports seem  to agree thnt it is murh milder than  last year's "spanish" variety, wh-ch  is some consolation of murs***. The  medical heal h officr has judged  it necessary under the circumstances to close things up tight. The  pchools were rlosed early in the  week and the ban has no* been  pfaced upon the churches. t*fieatre  and all public gatherings.  Fire Brigade Again  Appeal to the  Phone Subscribers  People Must Understand That  Eflicient Fire Service Rest*  Largely With Themselves  Appeala have often been made)  to telephone users to refrain from  calling -up lhe central office immediately after an alarm of fire, in  order to afford the operator time  to gel notice to all the firemen. Juat  hew fa; this little act of consideration is observed is seen fiom a  "false alarm" which was turned in  as a teat last Monday evening. As  soon as the syren commenced to  sound the numbers on the switch  board st.utr d to drop,and no fewer  than 79 calls were sent in almost  simultaneously. Presumably neatly all of these were from subscribers who simply wanted to know  "where the fire was." No doubt  it is a verv natural curios ty, hut as  nearly all those culled may be presumed to have no intention of doing anything to help, it is surely no  hardship to ask ihem to rr s r .in  their curiosity for three minutes.  A similar situation prevails wilh  the street traffic. As soon as the  first fire truck is out and on its way  all the available automobiles, rigs  and bicycles speed alter it, g. iting  in the way of the second truck  which follows one minute behii d  the first. All sight seers' cars should  surely wait until lhe two trucks are  off, giving the firemen as clear a  right ot wav. as possible.  Aged Resident is  Laid to Rest  Edwin D. Harvey, a Kelowna  resident for the past eight yeara,  passed away"last Friday morning  at lhe age of 70 yeara. He had  been Buffering for some months  with acute heart trouble, though  lately a decided improvement in  his cordition had given rise to the  hope that ho would recover fiom  the attack. Indeed, a son who had  been here from lhe prairie returned home a week ago thinking hia  father out of danger. A relapse  occurred a few days ago, however  which proved too much for hia  strength.   ,  Mr. Harvey was born at Danville. Que., moving later to Saskatoon, where he waa the owner of a  large farm. Eight years ago he  came to Kelowna to live in retirement. He leaves a wife and daughter here, a son in Saskatoon, and  anoiher in Denver, Col.  The funeral took place Sunday  and was largely attended'by the  many friends of the family.  and are likelv to keep on increasing: and  whereoe the business in the post oflice is  increasing every year, and whereas no  public building haa been erected by thc  gevernment in tbe Gty of Kelowna and  tbe preaent offices are not commensurate  with the dignity of the Dominion of Cen-  ada and are a disgrace to the Citv of Kelowna as well aa a menace to public  healtb ;  Therefore be it reaolved that the Kelowna Board of Trade reapectfully and urgently petition the government to erect a Post  Office Building and offices suitable for the  requirements of tbe prosperous end in-  creeaing community of Kelowna and the  surrounding district and in accordance  with the dignity of the Dominion of Can-  eda.  Mayor Sutherland who was one of  the six local, delegates the to Board  of Trade convention at lhe coast  gave some account of whst tie  considered one of the most important gatherings ever held in the  province. He regretted that no  resolution had gone in from the  local board,' several strictly local  mattera being dealt with by delegated from other parts of the valley.  New members elected were  Messre.'H. Chapin and C. W. Lees.  Provincial Debt is  Slowly Piling Up  vVith lhe recent loan for $2,000,-  000 floated by the province for  P.G.E. purposes, the aggregate  bonded indebtedness of B.C. ia  approximately $33,000,000,. or  nearly double what it was at the  end of 1916 when the pr.aent  administration took <dice, a littles  n\er three years ago. Then lhe  debi was slinhlly over $13,000,-  000 The present L'b-ral administration has. ther.fcie, borrowed  about $14,000,000. Next yea, .his  Urge totr.1 will be swelled by a  further loan for $4,000,000 t<i be  utilized in completing construction  of the P.G E., into Prince George  and for other purposes.  The nnanci-,1  operation*, of ihes  government   will  undoubted y be  a fruitful topic of discussion at the  present session.  Mfs. W. D. Harvey and daughter  desire to thank their many ftienda  for their kind help and sympathy  during their recent bereavement.  Mi. and Mrs. W. Budden had  the misfortune to lost their little  girl last Sunday, alter a bri< f illness. The -child was two yeara  of age and of a bright deposition. 1 ,\GE THO  KELOWNA  RECORD  Thimday, Febrtiary 19.

I PRECAUTIONS AGAINST THE  'FLU  EPIDEMIC  lhe ptevalence of 'flu" again,  though thia time fortm-alely of a  mddcr type, haa made advisable  tht- publication of the instructions  issued by the Provincial Board of  Health.  People are very much given to  underrating the effect of this dis  easv- and to regard i' more as a  common cold. Rem- in ber, first,  that it is very infectious*, and you  owe it to yuurae.f and io your  neighbors tnao every thi --j I ��� avoid  catt hing it; and, secondly, if you  do catch it, that > our duly lo youi  neighbors is to prevent them bom  catching il fiom you. It begins as  a common cold, headache, pains  ii muscles, c hilt**, feeling of c<ld  in lhe head, smeness of throat,  fever.  The germ of the diseas** is transmitted bv dioplets of spiay from  loud i.-iking, coughing and sneezing; through drinking and fating  out of utensils improperly cleansed;  by direct contact ( I he mild cases  aie as dangerous tor spreading  severe ones. More even, because  a man with a mild case comes in  contact with a greater number of  rie'tple). The carrier plays u larg-  er part in the spreading of the disease than is realized, therefore���-  avoid crowds. There is no vaccine  against influenza. There is, however, a vaccine against its compilations which is of value.  li attacked by the disease, keep  warm, send for the* doctor, and  keep the other members of the  family out of the room. If the  children complain, keep them at  hotn*, and remember, if care in  not taker., that the after-effects of  the disease are the cause of the  deaths. Isolation of the patient  will prevent the spread of lhe  disease.  I he following are a few general  rules:���  1. Avoid needless crowding ;  influenza is a crowd disease.  2. Smother your coughs and  sneezes; others do not v/ant 'he  germs which you would throw  away.  3. Your nose, not your mouth,  was made to breathe through; get  the habit.  4. Remember the three C's: "A  clean mouth, clean skin, and clean  clothes."  5. Open the windows, always at  home at night; at the office when  practicable.  6 Your fate may be in votir own  hands; wash your hands before  eating. ���  7. Don't' use a napki ', towel,  spoon, fork, glass, or cup which  has been used by another person  and not washed.  Local Boy Scouts  Edilca by "Wolf."

PARADES: 1 he combined iroop  will parade at the club room on  Tuesday the 24th inst. at 7.15 p.m.,  iin- bugle band at the fire hall on  Ihmsday the 26ih inat. at 7.30  p.m. and the usual basketball practices will be held on Friday and  Wednesday of the above week.  It ia possible that the troop parade may have to be called off on  account of the flu and kindred  epidemics which have now resulted  in the schools closing down, but if  so each patrol will be (lOtifii d in  plenty ot time beforehand. For  the same reason the proposed visit  of the Summerland Iroop hete for  basketball on Friday the 27th inat.  may have to be postponed. In  connection with the latter we  might say that we haye not yet le-  ceived nearly enough offers to  to billet the twenty visiting scouts  and we should be glad it any of  our friends, parents of scout oi not,  would let us know if thev can help  us in this respect.

The position of domestic science  instructor rendered vacant by the  removal of Mias Macfarlane to  Penticton is to be filled by Miss  Mowat who arrived yesterday from  Kansas City. Her home, however,  is in New Westminster.  Every mail is now bringing a  flood of circulars and price lists  from liquor companies in Alberta,  and although some of theae concerns are of very questionable  standing it is evident they are doing a roaring business. Police  enquiries made during the week  regarding one of these hard stuff  vendors revealed the fact that more  than fifty local orders for varying  amounts had been sent to them.  A quiet but pretty wedding took  place at the home of Mr. George  Patterson, on Thursday morning  February 12th at 10 o'clock when  their daughter, Mary Smith, was  united in marriage to Mr. Harold  Ewart Patterson son of Mr. Andrew  Patterson of this city, the Rev. Mr.  Price officiating. The bride who  was given away by her father,  looked charming in a dress of white  satin with veil and orange blossoms,  and carried a boquet of carnations.  She was attended by her sister  Flossie, while Mr. Lawrence Lemon  aupported the groom. After the  ceremony the happy couple left  amid showers of confetti for Vernon en route to Enderby, where  they will reside.  Benvoulin Notes  Mr. R, Snowden left on Monday  morning for Calgary.

The joint social of the Benvoulin  United Farm Women and the  Kelowna United- Farmers, held at  Mr. E. A. Day's ranch on Thursday evening last, proved quite a  success. The evening entertainment in charge of the ladiea consisted of contests, muaic and singing, after whieh refreshments were  served.  High-class  Portraiture  .Landscape Work  Amateur Finishing  Enlarging  Call and see in tn our new studio  PICTURE FRAMING  Rev. Father Verbeke returned  Tuesday from a visit to Vernon.

Felix Casorso was a passenger  for Calgary Monday.  Mrs. Geo. Fletcher left hurriedly  yesterday for Sault-Ste-Marie in  response to a wire advising her of  the serious illness of her son Ewart.  Sad to say, however, word haa  since come that the young man  has died of pneumonia. He waa  twenty years ofageand well-known  to many* locally,' having attended  the schools here.  The Okanagan Building nnd  Trading Co. is a new local company which is taking over the  wood-working business of Butler  6t Small. The two latter will still  remain in active management ot  the concern and with them will be  associated Mr. Holl who will act  as secretary. A new factory is be  ing erected on Ellis Street near the  Occidental Co.'a warehouse, and  in addition to the machinery to be  moved from their present premises  in Lawrence Avenue, a considerable amount of new plant is being  shipped from the coast.

It is the intention to have  here merely a distributing branch  office, and not to instal machinery  of any kind, lumber and building  material being shipped in (rom  their mills at Enderbv.  Four boya were brought up before the magistrate Monday charged with breaking into the bicycle  shop of J. Campbell, on Pendozi  Street. Two at least of the boys  are old 'offenders, one of them  having a record including housebreaking, stealing mail, forgery  and miscellaneous mischief. Just  what to do with theae boys, who  are apparently incorrigible, is a  problem. They were remanded  until Monday.  A splendid dramatic entertainment waa given Monday in the  Morrison Hall under the auspices  of the W.A. of St. Michael's church.  The Misses Gage-Brown are a welcome addition to the amateur talent  of the city and were ably assisted  by Miss Samuelaon whose character acting waa worthy of a professional. Mrs. Houblon aa the  "duchess" was also veiy good.  When such well-known names as  Mrs. Soames, Mr. Drury Price nnd  Mr. Shaw appear on the program,  an evening's pleasure is assured.  Mr. Tod Boyd waa as ever the  perfect accompanist. The Domino  Troupe sang aome very enjoyable  numbers. The financial returns  were very good and the ladies  wish to thank all who so ably assisted to make the evening such a  success.
