Curtis happened  to be  in the council chamber as the meeting commenced and opened- a vig.  (ire on the members of the coun  cil for their " want of business  methods," their " ahilly-ahallyniK  ways," and general unreasonableness. It appeared lhat i plo-v liad  been borrowed from Mr. Curtis foi  use in loosening up the gravel  when the men were hauling Irom  the pit for street work. The foreman had promised to get some remuneration from the council for  the owner. Mr. Curtis had accordingly sent in a bill to the city for  $24.25 at the rate of 25c. per day  for the use of the plow. He had  made repeated applications, he  said, but the bill had not-been paid.  Mr. Curtis was ..evere in his  critciam of the Council's conduct���  so murh so that His Worship, recovering at length from the suddenness of the altack, ..reminded  him that he was appearing before  the Council of the City of Kelowna,  and must conduct himself in a manner befitting the occasion. If he  had a good caae against the council and would present it in a plain  straight forward way he could be  sure of a hearing. The matter it  seemed had been brought before  the council for the first time at its  last meeting and referred to Aid.  Copeland.  Aid. Copeland said the Board of  Works had not come to any decision about it. They certainly did  not feel like paying $24 for the use  of a plow that could be bought  new for $22, especially as before  they had been able to use it at all  they had had to fit it with a new  share and sole. He promised to  look into the case ut once.  A letter was read announcing  the visit on the following day ol  th? Municipal Commission under  the "Public Enquiries, Act." It was  decided if possible lo arrange a  meeting wilh the council in the  evening.  A telegram was read definitely  announcing that the Duke of Con-  naught's party would be in Kelowna on Saturday, October 5th from  2.15 to 3.45 p.m.  A petition was received from the  residents of Fuller avenue for the  extension of the electric light along  (.that atreet.  A petition was also received for  a sewer on the first alley south of  Leon avenue from Ellis Si. to the  end.  Mr. T. E. Cooper, the city assessor presented a report to the effect  that the total assessment on land  in the city, as revised bv the Court  of Revision waa $2,454,525.  Aid. Sutherland, in the absence  of Aid. Taylor, chairman of the  Finance Committee laid before the  council the following estimate of  revenue and expense for the year:  Fell From Building  An unfortunate accident, which  might have have had more serious  consequences, happened last Satur  day moruiiiR, on ihe new houae  which Mr. Cuita is erecting for Mi.  W. T. Ashbridge, ou Glenn Ave.  Wm. Enston, a carpenter, waa  working on (he second atory, when  he unwittingly stepped backward  into a hole left for the chimney,  and fell through into the basement  a distance of about twenty feet. He  was picked up almost unconscious  and carried across to Mr. Hall's  house, Dra. McNaughton and Knox  being summoned.- He was afterwards removed to Mr. Curls' place  where hia injuriea were examined.  He waa found to be Buffering from  a broken rib, and waa badly bruised and shaken. Sunday he was  removed to the hospital, and reports state that he is progressing  favorably.  'Visit of Municipal  Commission  Inquire Into  Working of the  Municipal Clauses Act  Interesting Double Wedding  A double wedding which will be  of considerable interest to Kelowna  people, all the parties concerned  having lived here until recently,  wus celebrated last Wednesday,  August 28th at Pilot Mound, Sask.  Miss Nettie Tait was married to  Mr. O. B. Hidden, and Miss Minnie  Tait to Mr. Chas. ��. Dick. Mr.  and. Mrs. Holden aluved off al Kelowna last Saturday, llie guests of  Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Parker, on  their way to Peachland, where they  will take up (heir residence. Mr.  and Mrs. Dick went eaat for a short  honeymoon, after which they will  return to Calgary, where Mr. Dick  is in the real estate business.

Sutherland,  such as scavenging, street watering,  &c, but they were provided for by  special rates which paid for them.  The amount of $44,906 to be  raiaed-by taxes would necessitate  a rate for general expenses of 8.7  mills, for interest and sinking fund  on debentures of 7.1, and for  school purposes, 4 mills, a total of  19.8. There would be a rebate of  one-sixth off the general rate but  not off the other two.  It was proposed to strike the rate  in the by-law aa follows to be levied on land only:  General  Debenture  School  9 mills  ���   7   ���  4   ���  20  Last year's rate it was mentioned  was23J mills on land and improvements.  By-law 116 fixing the rate at 20  mills was read a first and second  time, a special meeting being arranged for the following morning  to further advance it.  At .the special meeting on Wednesday the tax by-law was read s  third time, which waa the main  purpoae for which the meeting had  been called.  Several mattera, however, were  discussed. Mayor Jones mentioned that there had' been several  slight accidents to the workmen in  the construction of the sewerege,  and attention had been drawn to  the fact that there was a danger  that the city might become liable  for some heavy damages if anything  serious happened during the course  of construction. It was decided to  enquire as to the rate for a general  blanket insurance policy to cover  such accidents.  Aid Sutherland proposed that the  clerk be instructed to write to Mr.  J. M. Robinson, of Naramata thanking him for the use of his houseboat during the Irrigation Convention.  Everybody who has visited the  theatres during recent years remembers the Pollard Juvenile Opera  Company which enjoyed auch a  wide vogue throughout thia continent. Well, the youngsters are  coming back after three years in  other lands. They are coming  back wilh their wits sharpened,  their ideas broadened and their  careers assured. Every one of the  young folks who compoae thia latest company ia tried and true and  haa a training which would entitle  him or her to a poaition in the front  ranks of the grown up professional  companies. The repertoire this  season is delightfully complete and  contains operas and musical comedies for the most psrt new in this  vicinity. There are some thirty-five  or forty of the Pollards this season  and the scenic productions ate  even more complete than here-to-  fore. Opera House manager Duncan has arranged for two appearances of these talented youngsters  during the Fall Fair.  Patrick Doyle pleaded guilty ihis  morning before Magistrate Raymer  to stealing a gold watch, the properly of y Japanese woman. Doyle  had absti acted the watch from a  trunk at the Japanese restaurant,  but Chief Sutherland got on hia  Patrack and brought him to book.  He was sent up to Kamloops to  await trial.  Mrs. Chittenden and baby, of  Penticton, are visiting in town this  week.  A resolution was passed lhat the  request of Mr. I. B. Whitehead for  a reduction of his trade license on  the pool room be not granted.  Aid. Copeland iienlioned Mr.  Curtis'plow and stated that the  committee had decided to pay for  a new share.  The meeting then adjourned.  The special commission appointed under the " Public Enquiries "  Act, to inquire into the present  system of municipal government  throughout the province held a  session in Kelownayeaterday evening in the council chamber. I'he  commission appointed bv the  Lieut.-Governor consists of Messrs.  Wm. H. Keary, of New Westminster, who presided, Hugh A. Mac-  Lean, K.C., of Victoria, and Alfred  E. Bull, barrister of Vancouver.  Although the meeting was open  to all interested in municipal matters ihe only persons present were  the mayor and aldermen and city  clerk.  The aession waa conducted with  all the formality of a court of law,  a proclamation being firat read  declaring the authority ol the commission and indicating its objects,  viz., to inquire into the operation  of the Municipal Clauaea Acl in the  province.  Mayor Jones, Aid. Sutherland,  Aid. Raymer, Aid. Copeland and  Mr. G. H. Dunn, cily clerk, were  each sworn in turn, and mude many  suggestions which were carefully  noted bv the? commissioners.  It is the aim of the commission  by consulting in this way with those  who are practically concerned wilh  the application of the Act to city  government, to amass a fund of information which will be a valuable  guide in any future amendments.  A large number of questions  were directed toward seeking a  solution for the present difficulty  experienced by cities and municipalities in the preparation of the  voters' list. Owing to a clause in  the act which reatricts the Iranchiae  ao far aa property owners are concerned, to holders of registered  deeds, excluding thereby all owners  under agreements of sale, not only  ia a great injustice done to many  people who are really and truly  the tax payers, but an unlooked-for  task is placed upon the council of  ascertaining the registered owners  of each lot in the city, a task which  frequently entails a special search  in the land registry office at Kamloops.  The former method, adopted by  nearly all councils, of making up  the voters' list from the assessment  roll, is no longer admissible as  famous decision in Victoria  showed.  As Mayor Jones pointed out.  person might be the owner of  thousands of dollars worth of property in the city, but because he  had no registered deed he was nol  entitled le vote. He strongly  advocated compiling the voters'  list from the asseaament roll. The  names on the uasessment roll were  those of the city's real ratepayera  who ahould be the voters.  Commissioner MacLean was  plainly of opinion that this was the  solution of the whole difficulty..  The roll, he said was not made up  for any political or partizan purpose, and should contain the persons really entitled to vote. Perhaps a few cases might arise where  a peraon would get a vote who  ahould not, but the system would  be more certain and involve intin-  ately leas labor than chasing up the  holders of registered deeds.  A suggestion brought forward  by Mayor Jones and assented to  by each of the other witneaaes was  that the council should be elected  for a longer term. Two years, he  thought, would be sufficient with  half retiring each year. By this  means greater continuity in the  work of the council would be  secured. As it waa, in caaea where  all the aldermen retired, it was  often several months before the  new men became sufficiently conversant with the work, nnd valuable  time was thus wasted. '  Government by commission was  diacuaaed at some length. Mayor  Jones said that although he favored  the principle, he did not think it  wise for a place like Kelowna  which could not afford to pay high  salaried officials.  The opinions of the witnesses  were sought upon the adoption of  a uniform system of auditing  city  accounts and the appointment of a  government inspector of accounts  who could also give expert advice  as to the interpretation of the Act;  on the chanting of election day  from Thursday to Saturday, so as  to allow a longer period between  nomination and election.  Mayor Jones pointed out the  difficulty in not being able to borrow money lo improve the public  park. Kelowna had a beautiful  site for a park but could only make  slow progress with its development  as the sums they were able to take  from the general fund for the purpoae annually were so small. What  was wanted wns the power to borrow say $10,000 or $12,000 to put  the park into such shape that they  could enjov it now, but this power  the Act did not give.  Commissioner MacLean aaid he  thought the aite for Kelowna's park  was one of the most beautiful he  had ever seen and .reflected great  credit upon those who had had  the foresight to secure it. The  city would be foolish if it ever  parted with one foot of it.  Mr. A. E. Bull and the chairman  were both inclined to think the  city had power to borrow money  for such a purpose, and instanced  New Westminster and Burnaby as  having done exactly the same  thing.  Aid. Sutherland disagreed with  the restriction imposed by the Act  lhat the discount allowed by the  city from taxea paid promptly  should be only on the general tax.  He thought the discount should be  extended equally to the debenture  and the school taxes, believing that  the extra inducement offered would  result in much more prompt payments. Through a misunderstanding Kelowna had been doing this  in the past and had found it work  exceedingly well.  Aid. Sutherland also advocated  abolishing the necessity for gelling  a petition from the rate-payers before a money by-law could be presented. The by-law nad to be  voted upon by the electors any way  and a petition simply meant appealing to them twice. The difficulty was not evident here,  but  Opera House Under  New Management  A change in management it announced this week in connection  with the Opera House, Mr. Raymer having leased it to Mr. R.  Duncan, proprietor of "Dreamland"  who is taking it up with an energy  which augurs well for its future.  Mr. Duncan has already demonstrated hia ability in this line by the  manner in which he haa conducted his moving picture theatre,  which he has raised to a high standard, and which haa become a  popular item in the city's amusements.  He is more than a mere showman, he is an enthusiast in hia business, and realizes to the full the  great educative possibilities in moving pictures, and by adhering strictly to his determination to keep his  show free from the elements which  tend to debase it in some cities, he  has been rewarded with a patronage which is ample testimony to  the public's appreciation.  Mr. Duncan takes over the Opera  House with the same desire to provide only the best obtainable, and  will limit bookings aa far aa possible to companies of established reputation, and who can make good  their promises.  Postal Statistics  must be very great in larger cities.  Aid. Raymer was questioned as  to the remuneration of the council.  He said the practice had never  been followed here, but he believed that where a business man sacrificed his time to devote it to the  city's affairs, he was entitled to  some pay for it  Another important matter upon  which opinions were asked was  the loaning of the city's sinking  fund. It was evident from the remarks of the commissioners that  the practice was fraught with some  danger in other places, and the  greatest caution was advised. An  instance was givin of one small  city which had loaned $35,000 in  one sum on one security, a risky  proceeding.  The city clerk, Mr. G. H. Dunn,  pointed out several little anomalies  in the Act which he had discovered tn his endeavours to comply  with its provisions. A certain  clause, for instance, required the  Court of Revision to be advertised  in a newspaper on four consecutive days, an impossibility where  there was no daily paper. He  also pointed out the inconvenience  which arose from the inability of  the clerk of a city to take declarations in connection wilh the voters'  list. The curious part of it was  that the clerk of a district municipality was empowed to take'such  declarations. The commissioners  agreed that there was no reason  why a city clerk should not have  the same power.  At the conclusion of what was a  most interesting session, the chairman thanked (he council for their  evidence and ihe use of the room.  To-day, Thursday, the commissioners are visiting Summerland, and  the next stop in their itinerary being Penticton.  During the afternoon prior to  the local meeting and on the following morning the visitors were  driven around the district and  shown over the city.  According to statistics prepared  by the postal union relating to the  circulation of poat cards, in the various countries of the world, Germany heads the list with 1,500,000,-  000 per annum. Japan comes  next with not much more than half  this amount, namely, 894.000.000  Great Britain being a good third  with 845,000,000.  As regards other countries, Austria sends out 432,000.000. Russia  290.000.000. Italy 137.000.000 and  Hungary 113,000,000.  It will probably come as a grn-  eial surprise that France sends out  only 30,000,000 post cards, but this  is probably due to the fact that a  post card containing more than  five words costs the relatively high  amount of ten centimes.

C. Herron  who left on Monday's boat for  Glasgow, Scotland, where he goes  to complete his studies. After  varied programme Mrs. D. Ross  Squair was called upon to read the  following address :���  To D. C. Herron, E��q., M.A.,  Sir, -We, the Ladies of Benvoulin,  deiire to expreu our appreciation of the  great work you have done ���inungit ui  We feci that in your leaving us that we  are losing a real friend - a friend thai  hat coma up to the standard ot the  definition that you gave us some time  ago : "A friend is one who, when they  come to our house, will enjoy such  things aa we have and show that (hey  enjoy them.'' Such, indeed, sir, has  heen our association with yourself.  You have movejjfc abcut anionics! us  for the r*"t f>v mftM^i and 1 think we  can iiK's.'., ���>���') liiui cvciy one of us  were glad when Mr. Herron stayed unci  supped with us. Cuud fellowship seemed to have surrounded you ; your pretence chased away the gloom Hnd  brought sunshine instead - -why even the  little ones were always glad to see Mr.  Herron coming. Yes, we can sing with  all our hearts that " He s a Jolly Good  Fellow " and we believe this has been  the secret of your success. When the  people like their minister fust as a man  it ia more easy to lilce him as a preacher  even if lie does hit the sore spots,  First then, sir, we appreciate you as a  man. Second, we appreciate you as a  faithful minister of Jesus Christ. We  feel assured that if we are not better  men and women the fault is our own  for your messages have always been full,  straight and clear cut. "Die wayfaring  men though fools shall not err (herein."  You can leave us with a clear conscience that you have preached " the  whole council of Cod" not only in Benvoulin but in Rutland, Gleninorc and  among the homeless hoys in various  camps. We shall remember your messages for many years to come ; in fact  there is not a day but some part of  your sermons comes back to us, and we  believe that should we never meet again  on earth you will see in that great day  when small and great shall stand before  God the results of these five months'  work.  At  you   leave   us to complete your  studies and enter on your life work we  feel that we would like you to have  something from us that will keep us in  your remembrance and we think we  might use the word of Scripture without  irreverence : " There is here a lad with  five barley loaves.'* Ihis token is only  the barley loaves, but our esteem is not  there, it ia in the great wealth of fragments that remains to be gathered ip  in the affectionate regard of the people  of Benvoulin for yourself.  We hope, sir, that God will in Hi  good pleasure sp-ue you many years lo  labor for Him in tin* sunie faithful manner that you have done in this district  and when you go back to your own  country, New Zealand, we would ask  you to remember us, and we, I am sure,  will always remember these five short  months.

Mrs. Dan McLean presented him  with the token which took the  form of n fob and Canadian gold  coin with inscription.  Mr. Herron replied to the ad-  dress in a few well-chosen words  Mr. W. A. Scolt started singing  " Blest Be the Tie That Binds " and  the whole company joined in n  very hear'y manner. The evening  was brought to a close by lunch  being served and the singing of  " Auld Lang Syne," and " He's a  Jolly Good Frllow," everyone joining hands.  Mr. Herron preached his fare  well termon on Sunday" night, t  sermon that will be remembered  by all who heard it, from the good  old gospel text " Marvel not that  1 said unto you ye must be born  again," John iii. 7. His eloquenc  and earnestness brought the tears  lo many eyes.  A good number of his friends  were at the boat on Monday morning to wish him Godspeed.

'HONE 19  0>\anagan Centre  From our own correspondent  Among those leaving our district to attend the " stampede " at  Calgary were Mr. J. Goldie and  Mr. S. Edwards.  The services of Miss Wentworth  have again been secured as teacher  for the Okanagan Centre school  and of Miss Smith, of Peachland,  for the Woods Lake school.  Mr. A. McLain spent a few days  visiting Mr. Dan Clark, leaving for  the east on Saturday's boat. Mr.  McLain was teacher in the school  which Mr. Clark attended as a boy  in hia old home in Ontario.  Dr. McNaughton, of Kelowna,  came up on Tuesday's boat to  inspect the children attending Okanagan Centre school according to  the provincial laws in respect of  same. The doctor had been up  the previous week to the Woods  Lake school.  Mr. W. Petrie had the misfortune  to lost one of his team last Sunday.  While running around outside il  became entangled in some barbed  wire and in its efforts to free itself  did such serious injury to one of  its legs that the animal had to be  shot.  Mr. S. Edwards has disposed of  his range property lying between  Woods and Okanagan lakes, to  Mr. Fleetwood Wilson, of Carr's  Landing. This property consists  of some 400 acres, the sale price  being in the neighbourhood of $10  an acre.  Sir Edward Ward and a party  of friends are visitors at the ranch  of E. S. Ward, son of Sir Edward,  at Carr's Landing. Sir Edward  Ward comes from London, England, <vhere he holds an important  position in the War Office. He  figured prominently at the siege ol  Ladysmith during the Boer war.  Mr. P. V. Fosberry has sold his  160-acre ranch on Okanagan lake,  three miles south of town, to Mr.  Rembler Paul, of Kelowna. Mr.  Fosberry left on Wednesday for  London, England, sailing by the  s.s. " Teutonic." Mrs. Fosberrx an<^  family expect to accompany him  on his return to this valley.  Large quantities of tomatoes are  now being hauled to the Okanagan  cannery by the own-is of fruit lots  throughout the district. The energetic secretary, Mr. H. Gleed, reports the work as progressing very  satisfactory adequate help having  been obtained to handle the season's output. TomatoeB are being  canned at the rate of six tons per  day, a material increase over the  output of last year.  The continued fine sunny spell  of weather of the past two weeks  has given way lo n wet spell, and  a decided drop in the temperature  reminds us that summer is now  over and that warmer clothes will  soon be needed. This haa been  a very pleasant summer, and taking it all round a good one for the  farmer and fruit grower. There  has been little excessive heat and  a more than usual quantity of rain  which has kept the creeks well  supplied with water and saved a  good deal of heart-burning over  water rights. The first falls of snow  on the high mountains are now  visible from the valley.  Items from Ellison  (From our own correspondent)  Miss C.

He drinks  more water than the city man.    The city-dweller is dependent upon  the public water-supply for the purity of his water, while the farmer can  have his own private source of water, and thus be sure that it is pure  and healthful.  A/TAN hasn't found a better drink than cool water, properly collected and stored.    But in order to keep  * water fresh and pure, a tank or well caring that will keep out every possible impurity must be used.  CONCRETE IS THE IDEAL MATERIAL FOR TANKS AND WELL-CASINGS.  1  IIKRKarcscurcsofuiheruscsfuriniKreteuli>uurfarin~unever)farm.

She  knows how vitally important it is to eliminate from  the kitchen all possible work, worry and waste.  And the range is the soul of the kitchen. Its  influence is felt every day and all day by the entire  family.  The Gurney-Oxford Range is a strong advocate  of modern household economy. Not only does it  cook and bake without disappointment or failure,  but it is a positive influence for economy. It burns  less coal���it requires less attention���it conserves  time.  Modern woman demands in her work modern  time and labor saving ideas, and modern woman is  right. The Gurney-Oxford Range is the fruit of  constant effort, research and experiment to make  and keep abreast of modern ideas of efficiency. The  Gurney-Economizer (which ii licensed for use only  on the Gurney-Oxford range) for regulating the  drafts by one action: the Gurney method of dis-  l-ibuting heat to all sides and corners of the oven:  I'.ne improved Gurney grates, combine to make the  Gurney-Oxford range the standard of efficiency and  the foremost exponent of modern household  economy.
