 ���  '     " "���  Mmm Uttatb  WuayA  VOL. XI.   NO. 10  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY. JANUARY 23. 1919.������ PAGES  Council Starts Out  On Another Year  Monday's meeting of the city  council wss the first statutory meeting of that body following the  municipal elections. The fact that  no change hsd taken place in the  personnel of the council, which  was simply " carrying on " in the  same order for another term of  office, robbed the first meeting of  some of' its interest, most of the  usual formalitiea and apeechmak-  ing being dispensed with. Certificates were handed in to show that  the members elect had renewed  the necetssry statutory declaration!  when Mayor Sutherland announc  ed that the ttanding committeet  would retain the tame composition  as for the past year.  Theae committeet stood ss follows :���  Light and Water���Aid. Duggan,  Knowlet and Meikle.  Public Works-Aid. Mantle, Rattenbury and Duggan  Health���Aid. Lloyd-Jones and  Rattenbury.  Fire Protection and Building���  Aid. Meikle and Lloyd-Jones.  Parka and Boulevards ��� Aid.  Knowlet and Mantle.  The Fire Brigade aubmitted their  annual report for the year, enclosing an estimate of supplies required ior the current year.  The Brigade suggested that the  council meke an appropriation of  $150 loanable the Fire Chief to  attend theconvention of Fire Chieta  to be held in Calgary. This the  council declared their willingness  to do.'  The superintendent of Dominion  Telegraphs submitted a bill for$19  being expenses incurred in repairing wires broken by trees falling  across them in the city park. Aid.  Knowles wat asked to make an inquiry into the matter,.......  The Kelowna Packera, Lid .wrote  protesting against a bill for $160.93  for water used during the month  of December as ezhorbitanl. Aid.  Duggan waa asked to report at the  neit meeting.  The mayor informed the council that the Kelowna Packers had  a quantity of cinders which they  were placing on ground near their,  premises. He understood the city  could obtain these cinders on condition that they aupply rock load  . for load, and he handed the suggestion to the Bosrd of Works to  consider.  Some diicuttio*. took place on  the question of the fuel for the  power house, which wss running  short  In respect to a claim from S. T.  Elliott for damage to the fire grates  in a house used by the soldiers as  barracks, the council inatructed the  clerk to state that the council did  not think the damage hsd been  done by the soldiers and therefore  they disclaimed liability.  Rutland Soldier  Returns Tuesday  Pte. Arthur Gray, of Rutland,  waa the arrival Tuesday, and wss  greeted by the, usual tooting of the  syrens in token of welcome back  to Kelownt after an absence of  over two yeart. He wat warmly  greeted by many friends ss he  stepped from the boat,  Pte. Grey left Kelowna with the  172nd and has seen a good desl  of service since hia first appearance in the trenches in December,  1916. He was gassed slighdy the  following February, but in July he  was sgain caught by the gas, this  time more seriously and hsd to go  back for aome time to hotpital.  Since hit recovery he hss been  with s labor bsttslion in France,  and was there when the armistice  wss signed.  Mr. C. Homewood haa been joined this week by his ton Fred, from  Mootejaw.  The general prevalency of "flu"  haa caused a complete disorganization of the schools throughout the  province,, so much so, thst while it  hss formeily been the custom to  admit new pupils in February, ar-  rangementa have been made to  defer their admission until mid-  umtnor.  Rutland News  / ���-  fSVom cm enra coHssounilssrtl.  Everett Fleming left for West-  bank Monday where he will tesch  school for a couple of months to  relieve Miss Hay, who haa taken  sick. /  The school concert which hsd  been delayed very much by the  closing of the schools, wss given  Friday evening, and proved to be  one of the most successful ever  held. There wss so sbundance of  good talent displayed in recitations  and music, and the large gathering  heartily enjoyed the efforta of the  youngsters. The whole affair reflected great credit upon those  who had the training of the children in hand, and the proceeda  which amounted to $33.80, were  handed to the Red Croat. The  programme was contributed to by  many performers, recitations being  given by Muriel Wilson, Connie  Stafford, Jessie Campbell, Flora  White, Ernest Mugford, Ernett  Stafford, Greville Harriaon, Minnie  Monford, Dudley Fitzpatrick and  Verna Ford, whilat muaical items  were rendered by Evaleen Harrison, Alma Mugford, Margaret Dudgeon, Evelyn Sproule, the Misses  Homuth, Miat Bruce and Mits  Morriton. Songs and chorus were  given by the achool, Div. I forming a tableau entitled "Work."  The annual meeting of the  Women's Inttitute was held in the  tchool on Thursday afternoon, Jan.  16th, when the directora'and financial reports were read.  Only eight meetings had been  held, owing to lhe fact that moat  of the membera had been engaged  in food production during the  tummer; and in November public  meetings were not allowed on account of the prevalence of Spanish  Influenza. Three demonstrations  were given in March, June and  October; on "Beauty Culture,"  "Canned and dried Fruit, Vegetablea and Chicken" and "Battenberg  Lace. Five essaya were given on  the following topics: Woman's  part in Food Production and Conservation ; Work of the Scottish  Red Cross in Serbis; The Place of  the Institute in the Community;  Common Sense in Conservation;  and Economies in the Home. Mrs.  Campbell-Brown gave an addrett  at the December meeting on "Opportunities and Obligations of our  New Citizenship."  The total amount raised for.the  Red X by teaa and donations in  1918 wrs $165.26; for the adopted Prisoner of War, $169.27 (this  included $60 from the Young  Peoples Society); Y.M.CA. Over-  seaa Work, $98.35. Some of the  membera had alao collected $235  for the Patriotic Fund. Six parcela  of Red X auppliea had been forwarded by the Red X Commission  th Central Depot, Vancouver, thit  year, valued at $384.50. The directors took the opportunity of  thanking the ladies who provided  the musical items on the program,  and all who had helped to make  the work of the Inttitute interetting  and inttructive.  The officers elected for 1919  were: Mrs. Stonehouse, president;  Miss Zella Monford, vice-pres. end  Mrs. S. Grsy, sec-tress.  The annuel business meeting of  the U.F.RC. wat held latt Monday  night and the following officers for  the ensuing yesr were elected:  President, C. H. Bond; Vice-Pres.,  J. Reid; Directors, Mettrt. G. Schofield. W. R, Craig, W. R. Reed;  Sec-Tress., T. Maxwell. The question of government grsding of  onions was discussed and.it was  mqyed by C. H. Bond and seconded by W. Stonehouse that No. I  grade should be If inches and  upwards; No. 2 grade I inch to  I j inches. Mr. S. T. Elliott waa  appointed aa delegate to Penticton.  Death of Mrs. Geo. Ritchie  Word was received yesterday  morning that Mrs. Geo. E. Ritchie  had passed away in hospital at  Vancouver. Mrs. Ritchie has been  a sufferer for a considerable time  snd has made seversl visits to the  cofst for special treatment, but  without avail. Mr. Ritchie has  been at the coatt with hia wife for  tome time and on receipt of the  tad newa here yetterday, Mitt  Hazel Ritchie and Tom left at once  to attend the funeral which will  take place at Vancouver. Rae  Ritchie who ia alao st the coast is  teriously ill with influenza.  Closing Sessions ot  Dairymen's Convention  Speaking to the convention of  B. C. Dairymen in Kelowns latt  week, the Hon. E. D. Barrow, minister of agriculture, waa very emphatic over the need of greater  efforts in the work of eradicating  the scourge of tuberculosis from  cattle. At the ssme time he bar  lieved that the dairymen themselves should shoulder a portion of  the burden and furnish fundt to  tupplement the government'i outlay. For tome years, he taid, an  annual aum had been appropriated to provide for letting and slaughtering affected cattle. Latt year  there had only been sufficient money available tu deal with cases  where the owners had made application for testa to be made. He  believed that dairymen in general  were as eager aa ever to have this  diaeate atamped out, and the whole  matter ahould be handled in a more  thorongh and efficient manner instead of the aomewhat catual and  intermittent way in which it had  been done in the past.  Although B. C. waa in a very  enviable position compared with  other provinces in respect to the  extent of the disease amongst cattle, he waa satisfied that it would  be a great crime' to neglect the  work at the present time, at it  would only mean bigger expenae  and lott in the future. The work  thould not be limited to the amount  aet atide by the government. He  wat in favor, to a certain point, of  the government helping out with  development of an industry, but  after that it became the duty of the  men concerned to shoulder at least  a portion of the burden. He would  like to tee the dairymen create a  fund to assist in fighting tuberculosis The government cou'd not  provide the whole cost. They  were "in , the ' hole " financially.  Capital could be found for revenue-  producing undertakings, but current expenaet could not be met by  borrowing. He wished to hsve the  matter discutted and thought the  dairymen could figure out aome  way to raise a fund. He intended  to put the tame propotal to the  fruitgrowers in respect to the control of fruit pests. In this case also  it would be a crime not to do  everything possible to keep the  orchsrds clean, and while they  aaked for assistance from the growera themselves, the government did  not intend to shirk any responsibility.  It wat ttated that there had been  15,705 cows tested latt year in  B.C., of which 568 or only 3.62  per cent, had reacted. Compared  with Ontario, which wat taid to  show 25 per cent, of reactions, but  had probably more like 75 per  cent., thia wat very gratifying. The  Okanagan wat now practically  free from the diaeate.  There waa a conaiderable discussion on thit tubject, and a re-  tolution wat finally drawn up, and  carried unanimously, atking the  provincial government to rigidly  enforce the compulsory tubeiculin  test, and alto to establish compulsory dairy cattle insurance, which  would provide adequate indemnity  for all cattle slaughtered, the insurance to be maintained bv equitable assessments from the provincial government, ss representing  the public, snd from the owners of  dsiry cattle. It waa also proposed  to limit the purchaae of dairy ttock  to animals from accredited herdt.  To place thete proposala before  the government a committee wat  appointed.  A feature of the afternoon's programme wat an account by Mr. J  W. Berry, of Langley, of the forming of the Frater Valley Milk Association, a cooperative concern  which offered many lettont to  farmera and fruit-growers here.  Other resolutions passed deslt  with the purchasing of milk on a  butterfat basis instead of the prevalent aystem cf gallons or hundred  weights, and compelling the fur-  nithjng of records of dairy airet  and dams told, the education - of  farmera in cottt of dairy production  and oppotition to reenactment of  the Daylight Saving act.  The following officera were elect  ed foi the coming year:���  Hon. Pretident, A. C. Wells,  Sardis ;   President, J. W. Berry,  Annual Meeting of  In hia addicts to the Board ol  Trade at th^ annual meeting Tuesday evening, the retiring president,  Mr. W. Haug, said that although  the patt year had been oue of the  moat eventful in the world** history  in matters affecting nations, it had  been a year of quiet, uneventful  prosperity for the city and district  The farmers had had good crops,  except in the case of fruit in some  localities, and prices had been  high. Consequently business had.  been good, and the community  wits in a much better position than  last year. ���  One of the principal matters un  dtfrtaken by the Board during the  past year had been the publication  of a booklet giving descriptions of  the (own and district. The matter  had been compiled by the publicity  committee and the printing done  locally. The result was creditable  both to the judgment of the com  mittee, and the skill and taste of  the printer. A parcel containing  100 of these  booklets had been  forwarded to to office of the agent-general  of tha province in London for distribution,  ana copies were being sent all over the  country by the secretary in reply to en.  quiries.  An important organization growing out  of the Board of Trade, but aeparate from  it had come into existence during the year.  Thia was .he Automobile and Good Roads  Association, which had been lathered by  the Board, and had become a strong factor  in the improvement of highways. Highway improvement and better railway facilities were two of the greatest objects for  which the Board should atiive during the  coming year. The promised completion  of the C, N. R. Branch, he thought, should  result in improvement in shipping facilities  by providing competitive transportation.  Even if thia did not decrease the rate*, it  would certainly tend toward rapid and  careful service, both of which were of the  utmost importance to the fruit shippers.  He thanked the officers and members of  committees for the work they had done  during the year. Owing to the "flu" there  had been few meetings during the year,  "l tba council had been obliged to as-  tuftfC moit of tha work of the Board. He  appreciated the honor which had been  done him in electing him president, and  only regretted that he had not been able  to devote more rime to the Board's work.  The financial report waa read ad adopted, some comment being made in this  connection on the large amount of unpaid  subscriptions.  Some discussion took place regarding  proposed changes to the C. P. R. wharf.  The company had written aaking for suggestions, but it waa considered advisable  to secure further information, or better  still an* interview with District-auperintencK  ent Macnabb.  The Board of Trade of Summerland  wrote asking endorsation for a strongly  worded resolution asking for a free ferry  across the lake from Westbank to Kelowna.  It was argued that as a link in the main  highway through the valley the ferry  should be as free to the public as the  rosds.  In view of the large contributions of the  district in men and money towards the  winning of the war it was decided to send  a request to Ottawa for some war trophies  for public exhibition.   T"  Mr. K. Iwashita was unanimously elected a member of the Boatd.  At the suggestion of Mr. M. Hereron, it  was decided to ask the Vernon Board to  cooperate with Kelowna in an endeavor to  have the main Vernon road widened at  some of the more dangerous points.  The election of officers was then taken  up, Mi. P. DuMoulin #being proposed as  the new president, his' election being unanimously approved. He, however, refused to accept the office unless he could  have batter support. He complained that  business men and shippers took little interest in the Board, and did not attend,  and that subscriptions were not promptly  paid. He proposed that the election of  officers be deferred to another meeting,  the retiring council in the meantime preparing a slate of suitable directora to submit to the Board.  There waa considerable opposition to  this, however, and a aomewhat heated debate arose between thoae who wished to  proceed with the election and those who  were willing to adjourn. Finally the  meeting was adjourned to Tuesday next.  Z  SI.50 Per Annum  The annual meeting of the Auto  and Good Roads Association will  be held in the Board of Trade room  on Saturday,the 25th, at 1.30 p.m.  Officers for the year will be elected.

Big Crowd Gathers  at Farmers' Banquet  < The farmers' "get-to gether banquet" held last Thursday evening,  and organized primarily to entertain the vititort to the various conventions in the city, wat one of  the bett attended and most successful functions of the kind ever held  in Kelowna. AH the available  space in Morriton Hall waa occupied by the long tablea loaded  with good things provided by the  generotity of the farmers and their  wivea. Though the hall ia a large  one there waa not nearly room for  thoae who withed to attend, and  the tale of tickets in town had consequently to be limited, in order  that room, might be reserved for  the delegatea and the members of  the farming community. Mr. M.  Hereron local director ofthe Dairymen's Association, and the moving  apirit in the affair, together with  the banquet committee had expended a tren endoua amount of  energy on the preparations, and  they certainly had every reason to  be gratified at the result of their  efforta. Their work, however,  would have been of little avail  without the splendid help given  by the ladiet, both in providing  the fare, and in attending to the  needa of the guettt.  Following the banquet, under  the chairmanahip of Mayor Sutherland an enjoyable programme of  tpeechet and mutic wat carried  out.  Mr. J. W. Jonea, member for the  district, waa the first tpeaker, hit  interfiling addrett pretenting convincing figures showing the great  progress made by the dittrict in  production of fruit and other farm  produce. He emphasized the need  for better transportation facilities,  referring especially to the prospect  of the C.N.R. building in the near  future.  " '<  Senator Boatock, a welcome if  aomewhat unexpected guest, an  old timer of the valley and representative for many years in the Dominion House, tpoke of hit early  viaita to Kelowna aome twenty or  more yeara ago. The wonderful  development which had taken  place waa evidence not only of  the fertility of the toil and the  great retourcet of the district, but  that the right class of people to  make the most of them had settled  here. He wst alwaya pleased jo  <rive assistance to any local project,  and hoped to represent the district in the Senate for many yeart  ���o come. Hit remarks, upon the  great problems the country hsd to  deal with in the returning of men  trom overseas, and the general reconstruction involved, were listened to with close attention.  Responding to the various toatta  Red Gross Drive is  Notwithstanding that the big  drive for Red Cross Funds was  held under msny ditadvantagea,  and thst arrangements from headquarters were somewhat in le-  quate to such an undertaking, Kelowna has remained true to form  in patriotic endeavors by exceeding its quota of $2,000. Exact returns ate not yet available, but it ia  sufficiently clear that the efforts of  the many energetic canvassers  have achieved this very satisfactory  reault, which compare! very favorably with most other places in the  province. Even Vsncouver, which  waa asked for $ 100,000, only succeeded in raising a little over half  that amount, and ia endeavoring to  get even by continuing the drive  until the end of the month.

Foster, Secretary of  the Mainland Fire Underwriters'  Association, announces lhat in con-  junction with the Vancouver Island  Association a new systf m for rating stores, warehouses, small manufacturing and i ffice premises, together with their cont-nts, has been  udopied for application tc cities  jnder Municips! Fire protection in  Mr. Fo.ttr stales lhat the UnJcr.  uritrrs. before airiving at their da"  cisio;;, considered various schedules in use id Canada and the Ur,rt<d  Slates. Sjme of lire most uipoit-  ant schedules u'.il.z;d elsewhere  were applied to many buildings in  lhe larger csntres ot tlie province  with tlie result that the schtdu'es  of other Canadian Fire Associations  having j iiisdiction in Albeita, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and  Q.itbec, will replace those at present applying here.  lhe introduction of a new system  such as this, necessitates a tremendous amount of detail work, consequently the re-rating of the entire  province will extend over a considerable period, but it is the  intention to deal wilh the larger  cities first.  The advantage claimed for these  schedules are numerous. Willi  their adoption in this province, the  whole of Canada will be on a uniform basis, as the fire compai.i. s  in the Maritime Provinces have  lately introduced them.  They are scientific in detail and  are based on years of experience,  and have been revised as new  conditions have from time arisen.  Although the charges and credits  are more in detail than those at  present used, it has been found  that much less difficulty has been  experienced in applying lhe system ; all of which tends to simplify  negotiations between the insuring  public and lhe rating bureaux.  The greatest advantages clai ed  for these schedules are that they  encourage owners to make structural improvements, increase their  fire protection, minimize the common fire hazards found in theae  risks and to erect buildings of  superior construclion; thereby tending to reduce the fire waste of  the country.  The adoption of these schedules  will involve, a system of continuous  inspection winch must beneficially  affect the unwarrantable fire waste  which both our Federal and Provincial Governments are endeavouring to check.

WILLITS & CO.      Kslowna  The national elections in Germany this ween were dominated  by women, who were voting and  running for < fflce for the first time  in the history of the_ country. There  were at leatt one or two Women  running on each ticket in every  diatrict.  There seems to be an uninformed rumour abroad that singing is  not taught in the Public School.  Aa a matter of fact singing is  taught throughout the whole Junior grade and has been for years.  It is taught also in pari of the Intermediate grade.  Some years ago we had a teacher of music hired in addition to  the regular staff. Her duties were  to supervise the singing, drawing  and painting throughout the school.  In addition, she al.io organized an  occasional concert for the entertainment of the parents. But, owing to the war conditions, her services liad to bs dispensed with  anrl drawing and painting and  singing were handed back lo the  teachers. The drawing and paint-  ing were faithfully attended to;  but brciuse Manual Training, Domestic Science and S:hool Garden-  ng have been added to the achool  curriculum without any deductions  in the past four years, it ia little  wonder that the grades tfracted  by these additions ahould not be  in any hurry to take up singing  which is only an optional subject  for which they get no professional  credit.  I have found one supreme difficulty and that is, very few of our  teachers are qualified to teach music except by rote. Rote singing is  good recreation, but it is of little  value educationally, We need a  systematic course of study right up  through the school, supervised by  someone who understandi music  and can teach. A full-time super  vision is not required, but one who  can spend an hour or so daily  in school is absolutely necessary if  any real educational resulta are lo  he obtained.  Mott of us in our school days  were taught some kind of singing  but there were many subjacts missing from the course of study lhat  are now included, and music has  been more or leBs crowded cut.  Personally I think it is wrong to  crowd it out ; but there is the fact  ���it has been. Thia heaping of one  subject after another on to the  school curriculum without any regard to the training of the teachera  in these subjects savours very  much of slave-driving in a profession that has been all too docile.  a a  The attendance at school hat  been very much better thia week  Snd things ere consequently much  more cheerful,  *       ���  ���  Messrs.

There ia a rapid increase  of orchards that have reached a.  bearing age., The people have  learned the art of co-operation in  packing, transportation and marketing. They know better than they  did how to obtain a substantial  part of the proceeds of their pro-  duett. Statements made at the  Kelowna gathering, setting forth  the quantity and value of fruits and  vegetables shipped from that district, are full of encouragement for  the future. It is for the advantage  of tha Okanagan district that they  ara settled by a superior class of  residents. The life there has attracted many well-educated men  and women, who form enlightened  communities cherishing intellectual  life, f nd yet quite capable of guarding their material interests.  P, B.
