 VOL IV.   NO. 17.  KELOWNA. BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY.  MAR. 21. 1912.  $1.50 Per Annum.  Meeting of  City Council  Council Petitioned for Grant  Towards New Exhibition  Building  The council held its usual meeting Monday morning, the mayor  presiding.  The following accounts were referred to the Finance Committee  for payment :-  A. E. Quinn, 4 daya on water works $12.00  McPliilips fit Wood, legal advice  on  telephone franchise.      ���       ��� 76.00  The correspondence included  an application from the Kelowna  Canning Co. for permission to have  the railway hack extended across  Cawston Ave., to connect with the  new cannery.  In discussing the matter it was  decided that while there was no  objection to the crossing being  made it would be advisable to impose some restrictions upon the  railway company as to the condition in which the street was left.  A resolution was passed giving the  required permission, but requiring  the crossing to be constructed subject to the approval of the Board  of Works.  A complaint regarding an alleged excessive amount of electric  light bill for January was received  from Mrs. E. Bailey, who considered that the meter must be to blame  as February's account was only  half the amount.  The chief engineer submitted a  report to the effect that he had  tested the meter and found it correct.  The clerk was instructed to write  Mrs. Bailey stating that the council  could not grant the rebate requested.  Messrs. Harvey & .Williams attended with a rough plan ot a subdivision which they wished to submit to the council.  A communication on tree planting from Mr. Lionel E. Taylor was  referred to the Parks Committee.  In mentioning the receipt of the  letter, (which is given in full in another page), Mayor Jones said it  was a pleasure to the council to  receive such friendly criticism, and  at the same time so many valuable  suggestions. Criticism of the council was usually very harsh and offensive, and as a rule unaccompanied by any hints of a helpful nature.  He was pleased to see one who  was comparatively a new comer  taking so much interest in the  town.  Aid. Blackwood said the adoption of such a scheme as that suggested would be a great advantage  to the city.  Aid. Sutherland discussed the  advisability of giving over the matter of planting trees along the  streets into the control of the Parks  Committee instead of leaving it  with the Board of Works.  The opinion was expressed that  before any tree planting was done  the streets should beprnperly graded and the boulevards properly  levelled and marked out, and the  soil plowed and cultivated.  The possibility of the city establishing a nursery for shade trees in  the park waa also debated.  A resolution was passed that the  Parks Committee be asked to take  up the matter ol tree planting on  the city streets.  A resolution was also passed  thanking Mr. Taylor for his Valuable paper on civic tree planting.  A deputation consisting of Mr.  Thos. Bulman and Mr. T. G. Speer  Waited on the council on behalf of  the A & T Association seeking a  grant from the city to supplement  the grant made by the Provincial  government towards a new exhibition building.  Mr. Bulman urged the necessity  . of all in the district making a special effort to work together for the  good name of Kelowna in the fruit  growing industry. He had formed  one of a deputation which had  waited upon the government a few  weeks ago on the matter of a grant  for the purpose of providing a more  efficient building for the annual exhibition and they had been successful in securing a considerable  sum. It had at first been thought  that they could put the money to  the best use by asking the city for  a site in the park and putting up a  building there. The A & T Association however had coma to  th*  conclusion that they would not be  doing justice to the country district  if they built in the park, that it  would not be wise to separate the  exhibition from the race track.  They were hoping to get $6,000.  from the government, but that was  not enough to put up the kind of ]  building they wanted. He did not  know in what condition the city's  finances,were but he did not think'  $1,000 or $2,000. could be better  spent than in helping the A & Tj  Association to erect a building  which would do credit to the city.  The question of placing the exhibition building in the park was  discussed at some length. Aid.  Blackwood stated that the objection  of the Park Committee was to the  exhibiting of live stock in the park  necessitating ugly stables and pens.  Aid. Copeland said it would be  a pity if the building could not be  in the park, as it could be used for  a variety of purposes,���such as a  gymnasium, etc. Thus instead of  being used only one week in the  year, it could be used all the year  round.  Aid. Blackwood thought it might  be possible to find room in the j  park, There was a good deal of.  vacant land there and it should be  possible to construct stables, etc.,  so as to be presentable. j  Mr. T. G Speer said that the A  & T Association would not agree  to building in the park. There was  more room in the present grounds  for their purposes.  Aid. Sutherland pointed out that  the exhidition grounds had been |  bought over by the city to help the  Association and were already costing the ratepayers about $650 a  year or with the exemption from  taxes about $900 or $1,000. _ |  Mayor Jones added that the city's  revenue was limited, and that a  heavy expenditure was expected  this year for improvements. In  view of this it was necessary to f:o  very carefully. He did not know  whether the finance c jj;mittee  would be able to make a cash grant  aa requested. If the Association  decided io build in the park and  approached the city for a site, they  might be willing to entertain it.  Mr. Bulman asked if the city  could not put through a by-law  to borrow the necessary money for  a grant and let the people turn it  down if they wished.  Aid. Sutherland suggested that  in view of the requirements of the  railway companies in the way of  land for terminals, the grounds  might be sold for sufficient to pay  back the city and still leave a good  sum to go towards a building in  the park. Mayor Jones mentionad  that he had been approached by  Major Clarke, commanding the  local B. C. Horse, for a site in the  park for a drill hall. If the city  would give the site he expected to  be able to get a grant of $8,000 or  $10,000.  Aid. Sutherland said the matter  should be first referred to the Park  Committee to report.  Mayor Jones thought they ought  to give the site if possible, as it was  an opportunity to secure a grant  for a building which would be a  great advantage to the local corps,  which they should encourage if  possible.  It was left with the park committee to report upon the application.  Aid. Taylor announced that the  Finance Committee had accepted  an offer for $19,000 of the city debentures to Messrs May and James  for $98.24 and accrued interest. A  resolution was passed confirming  this action.  Aid. Sutherland reported that  tests had been made of the faulty  generator at the power house.  The tests showed that the generator was not according to the company's guarantee, and the latter  would either have to remedy the  defect or supply a new machine.  Aid. Sutherland brought up the  matter of arrears in the Light and  Water department, and said that if  the council had no objection the  committee would instruct the clerk  to have all connections cut off  which were over two months in  arrears.  Dr. Boyce, the health officer, who  was present on another matter,  was asked for a report on the condition of Chinatown. He stated  that conditions as to cleanliness  were fairly good for this time of  the year. He had noticed the  Chinamen were all at work cleaning up. There was the question  of over-crowding of course which  he did not know how to prevent.  In some houses as many as 30 or  40 were living.  Aid. Taylor asked respecting pig-  killing by the Chinks on Sundays,  Dr. Boyce said he had not seen  any signs of pigs. No one was  allowed to keep pigs thereany way.  He thought the killing of chickens  on Sunday was a practice which  should ne stopped.  Aid. Blackwood stated that he  had sold one of the old buildings  in the park for $10. The other  was to be pulled down and burnt.  By-law No. 105, to amend the  pool-room by-law so as to prohibit  the issuing of any license for additional pool-rooms until same has  been approved by the council, was  introduced. The idea, said Aid.  Sutherland was to give the council  control over the manner in which  pool rooms were conducted. At  present anyone could rent a room,  pay his license and start a poolroom.  By-law No. 106 was also read' a  first time, amending the Building  by-law to include with livery stables  feed, sale or veterinary stables  and also regulating the amount of  explosives, coal oil, or gasoline  which could be stored in the fire-  limits.  In this connection it was suggested that the latter restriction should  be extended to include loose hay  and lumber.  By-law 103 in reference to payment of scavenging fees was reconsidered and finally passed.  Mention was made of the number of shacks which were going up  without chimneys, and it was decided to instruct the police to get  after offenders.  Aid. Taylor asked if anything  had been done respecting a sewerage system. The question of street  grading largely hinged upon the  council's decision in the nutter. It  was decided to hold a committee  meeting at an early date.  The meeting then adjourned.  The Hon. Price Ellison arrived  in town this afternoon with engineers of the C. N. R��� who are looking around the district as a prelim-  ary to location of the terminals.  Mr. Ellison will be again in town  on Friday, March 29th, arriving by  the afternoon boat, to take into  consideration certain questions of  local interest.  Socalist Candidate to  Speak on Friday  .A public meeting is to be held  on Friday night next at 8 p.m. in  Raymer's Small Hall in support of  Mr. Geo.Stirling, Socialist candidate  for the Okanagan, who with the  Rev. McLeod of Summerland will  address the meeting. Mr. Alec.  McLennan will be in the chair.  Ladies are specially invited.  The annual meeting of the Kelowna Tennis Club will be held on  the 28th of March at 8.30 p.m. at  Dr. Huycke's.  Mr. McDonald's boys of the public school beat a team of country  boys at baseball Saturday last by  16 runs to 13.  The regular meeting of the Kel  owna Study Club will be held at  the home of Mrs. J. W. Davidson  on Thursday March 28th at 8 p.m.  The study of the evening will be  Canadian poets and their verse  and the roll call will be answered  by quotations therefrom.

A large display of the newest spring styles will be on view.  It may be mentioned that Miss  Hartin has been fortunate enough  to secure one of Vancouver's lead  ing milliners in the person of Miss  Emprey.  The annual convention of the  Okanagan District Sunday School  Association will be held in Kelowna on Tuesday and Wednssday  April 2nd and 3rd, instead of the  17th and 18th as was erroneously  announced last week. Delegates  will be present from all parts of  the valley and a splendid programme has been prepared. Several specialists will take part in the  programme and a very successful  convention is anticipated.  Constable Shot by Hold-up Man  Men Arrested for Mission Store Robbery Shoot Constable on  Boat and Escape   -   Recaptured at Wilson's Landing  After Exciting Chase  A series of crimes rivalling in  dramatic interest the western tales  of Bret Harte has roused the people  of the district to an unusual pitch  of excitement during the present  week. Robbery and what may  yet prove murder are the charges  against the two desperadoes who  lie manacled and clo ely guarded  in the Kelowna lock-up.  Stories of a hold-up at the South  Okanagan store and escape of the  robber were handed around in  town Sunday last, but no one  thought the sequel would be the  terrible crime which was revealed  on the arrival of the s.s. Okanagan  at Kelowna on Tuesday morning,  when Provincial Constable Ashton  of Penticton was discovered in one  of the staterooms shot through the  head, and the prisoners Wilson  and James whom he was bringing,  up to Kelowna on the charge of  being concerned in the aforesaid  robbery, escaped.  Details of the robbery which  occurred Saturday night last at the  store of Messrs Taylor and Chater,  of South Okanagan, are told as  follows.  It was about 9 p.m., when the  only persons present in the store  were Messrs. F. D. Taylor, F. Small  and Randall, that the "hold-up  artist" entered. The " Bret Harte"  atmosphere was well sustained by  his having a wrap tied around his  head, so as lo conceal entirely the  lower part of his face, and by his  salutation to those present, " put  up your hands." This injunction  being accompanied by the presentation of a Colts revolver at  their heads, was promptly obeyed  and the assailant then turned his  attention to the safe, which he  rifled of its contents. Fortunately,  however, there was but little cash  to reward his efforts, the chief part  of the valuables being cheques.  However, he managed to possess  himself of between ten and fifteen  dollars in cash.  Meanwhile Randall seized an  opportunity to escape and made  oS to the Bellevue Hotel, being  followed by an ineffective shot  from the revolver. Arrived at the  hotel, he communicated his startling intelligence to the inmates, and  when they had recovered from  their first spasm of incredulity, a  number started off to the scene of  action armed with weapons varying from Winchesters to golf clubs.  However, the stranger had managed to make good his retreat by  this time, and search in the darkness proved unavailing. A telephone message waa sent to the  police at Kelowna, but elicited the  response that nothing could be  done that night. On Sunday morning 'he search was again resumed,  and it was thought probable that  the assailant had crossed the lake  with his booty.  Enquiries were instituted by  Provincial Constable Tooth, and  the wires got busy as soon as possible in all directions. From the  description given by the victims of  the i obbery, suspicion 'ell upon a  man named Walter 'i. James, a  tough character who had been  staying at the Royal Hotel for  some days and who had been  known to go out to South Okanagan Saturday afternoon. On  Monday the news came from Penticton that this man along with  another man named Wilson had  been arrested by constable Ashton  in the hotel there.  On Tuesday morning constable  Ashton started with his prisoners  for Kelowna, taking them into the  stateroom with him handcuffed  together. It was on the way up  that the most terrible part of the  business happened. All unsuspected by the passengers on the boat,  the prisoners managed to gain  their freedom, the unfortunate constable being silenced by a shot  through the head from a small  pistol which it is alleged James was  in the habit of carrying secreted  under his left arm and which had  been missed when the men were  searched. No one seems to have  heard the shot or if they did, did  not suspect the cause. It is supposed that the men then cut open  the constable's grip and  getting  possession of the keys removed  their shackles, getting ashore when  the boat reached Peachland.  It waa when nearing Gellatly's  that one of the stewards, suspecting something wrong, opened the  stateroom door and was horrified  tu find constable Ashton lyii.g unconscious with a bullet wound  through his forehead. News of the  tragedy was communicated over  the 'phone from Gellatly's to constable Tooth who met the boat and  had the injured man conveyed to  the hospital.  Steps were then taken to recapture the perpetrators of the outrage. A reward was offered for  their capture, dead or alive, and  constable Tooth hurried around  organizing posses of armed men,  hastily sworn in as special constables, and despatched across the  lake in all directions. Telephone  and telegraph wi.es were kept  busy and in a short time every  trail and avenue of escape was  guarded. Volunteers were plentiful, and for a time the keenest  excitement prevailed. It was not  expected that the men would escape  but it was feared that there might  be further bloodshed before they  were taken. In the early hours of  Wednesday morning word was  received that the men had been  seen going north towards Nahun  and a further posse of men was  hastily raised and despatched in  that direction.  The capture was eventually  effected more easily than anticipated. On Wednesday afternoon,  between two and three o'clock,  Mr. R. D. Ramsey, of Wilson's  Landing, who had been sworn in  by Mr. R. H. Parkinson, J.P.,  noticed two men sitting on a log,  and thinking they answered the  description given him, slipped  away and told P. H. L. Seeley.  Together they returned armed with  rifles and confronted the two men  whom they covered. At the command " Hands up I " James made  a movement to his revolver but on  being sharply warned dropped the  weapon. The pair were then  marched to Mr. Seeley's place,  where, with the help of A. W. Lee,  they were pinioned and searched,  afterwards being marched to the  wharf and put on board the s.s.  "Okanagan." There they were  tied to a post in the bow and so  brought to Kelowna.  There was a stir amongst the  crowd on the wharf when it became known that the men were on  board, each struggling to catch a  glimpse of the captives. They  were searched by constable Sutherland, and the pistol holster found  as suspected under James' left arm.  The crowd followed behind as the  prisoners passed up main street  held by constable Sutherland and  guarded by Messrs. Seeley and  Ramsey with rifles.  The preliminary hearing was  commenced this afternoon on the  arrival of Inspector of Provincial  Police Smith, of Vancouver. Chief  Constable Routh, of Vernon was  also present, the presiding magistrate being Dr. Boyce.  The men were first charged with  escaping from lawful custody, but  were remanded pending the arrival  of witnesses from Penticton. James  was then charged with the robbery  at South Oanagan, and committed  for trial on this count. The hearing on the more serious charges  will be resumed tomorrow.  James, "��ho appears to be the  more desperate character of the  two, has preserved a callous indifference throughout, but Wilson  gave signs of weakening. Jamea  is well known around town, having  worked for various camps in the  neighborhood, Many facta have  come to light indicating his criminal tendencies. He is supposed  to be a deserter from the U. S.  army. It was largely due to the  energies of special constable G.  Hill, who had watched his mov  ments during the past week, that  he was traced and identified will  the hold-up. Hill discovered from  a former companion of James' of  the latter's habit of carrying a  pistol in his coat sleeve, and there  is no doubt that further trouble was  Board of Trade  Monthly Meeting  The monthly meeting of the  Board of Trade was held Tuesday  day last, the principal business being the election of committees,  which were as follows:  Publicity Committee : Messrs. F.  S. Coates, Pangman and Leckie.  Agricultural Committee: Messrs.  T. G. Speer. M. Hereron and R.  S. Hall.  A committee consisting of Messrs  Sutherland, Pitcairn, Rees and  Pooley, was also appointed to take  in hand arrangements connected  with the Irrigation Convention to  be held here in August.  A resolution was passed on the  motion of Mr. G. C. Rose favoring  the advancing of local lime one  hour from April Ist to August 31st.  Mr. Rose spoke at some length on  this scheme, which would give an  extra hour of day light to those engaged at indoor occupations.  The secretary was instructed to  write the C. P. R. urging them to  proceed with the extension of I hell  telegraph line to Kelowna.  A resolution was also passed that  the Agricultural Committee enquire  into the advisability of placing the  new agricultural building for which  a government grant had been made  in the public park.  New members elected were  Messrs. E. E. Hankinson and A.W.  Bowser.  Watered His Whiskey  There seems to be a growing  tendency for the drunks of the  town to take to the water. A similar accident to that of last week  happened Tuesday as the ferry  was leaving for West Bank. A  bibulous individual stepped from  the wharf, intending, of course, to  hit the boat. But he didn't,���it  wasn't there. So he dropped into  deep water. His friend, who had  before managed to get aboard, at  once became anxious for his safety  and leaned over the side in an  effort to reach him. But alas I he  leaned too far, Hnd cast in his lot  with the one he was trying to save.  The pair was eventually fished out  but the whiskey they had drunk  must have been considerably diluted before that was accomplished.  East Kelowna News  (From our own correspondent)  Mr. J. T. Pierce has begun to  enlarge the post office and has  already made several improvements in that direction.  Mr. Geo. Allen has disposed of  some of his lower bench orchard  land, receiving the very good price  of $500 per acre.  The Rev. McLeod, of Sumn er-  land, will address the Kelowna  Brotherhood at the Baptist church  next Sunday afternoon, at 3.30.  Mrs. W. E. Adams returned to-  day from her visit east.  The result of the voting at the  Kelowna Methodist church on the  matter of church union is as follows.  Quarterly Official Board, 17 for j I  against.

Birth  FROST.-On Sunday, March 17,  to the wife of John Frost,'a son.  saved by the fact that this knowledge was communicated beforehand to his captors who searched  and found the weapon there.  It is a matter for congratulation  that such an apparently dangerous  criminal has been secured, and  the police and Messrs. Ramsey and  Seeley especially are to be commended on their smart capture.  Prisoners Make  Full Confession  Full confession has been extracted from the two men just as we go  to press. James shot the constable  and compelled Wilson to escape  with him. James also confessed  to holding up the store.  I The Orchard Cftij Record.  Thursday, Mar. 21  The Kelotona Land  and Orchard Co,  LIMITED.

The trade with  the other side of the lake ia fast increasing, and it is time the wharf  was put in better shape.  Ml. and Mrs. D. Lloyd-Jones  came down on the boat Saturday  on their return from an extensive  tour of Eastern Canada and the  States. There was a large number  of friends on the wharf to welcome  them.  Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Ashbridge  and family returned Saturday from  their u ual winter's stay in Toronto.  Saturday seems particularly to  have been a day for the return of  wanderers abroad, and amongst  them was Mr. A. W. Hamilton who  has been on an extended trip to  the north of Ireland. Mr. Hamilton did not return alone but was  accompanied by his newly-made  bride, and congratulations were  showered upon him from all sides.  Here's health and a long life ol  happiness to the pair 1  Mr. S. V. Bray was a visitor to  Armstrong last week, returning  Saturday.

Richard  McBride.and the Attornev-General,  the Hon. W, J. Bowser, who were  touring the interior invoking the  support of the electors for the  government and its policy of railroad development. The distinguished visitors were accompanied  by the Hon. Price Ellison and a  number of the leading Conservative  supporters of the valley.  The day originally fixed for the  visit was Tuesday, but this had  been changed to the previous day  to fit in with an alteration in the way policy,  itinerary for which the s.s. " Aberdeen" had been specially chartered.  The party were met at the wharf  by the mayor, Mr. J. W. Jones, who  is also president of the Conservative Association, Mr. R. F. Morrison, the secretary, Mr. H. W.  Raymer, and others.  Stepping into Mr. A. W. Dal-  gleish'a automobile, Premier McBride and Mr.Bowser.accompanied  by the mayor were taken for a  hasty spin around the city, including a visit to Kelowna'a palatial  courthouse. Time, however, was  short, and the party repaired to the  Opera House, where a public  meeting wns to be held.  The large hall was crowded, one  part being reserved fo. the school  children who were given a holiday  in honor of the occasion.  The chair was taken by his  Worship the Mayor, who in introducing the speakers drew attention  to the wonderful era of prosperity  upon which the province in general  and the Okanagan in particular had  entered, due in no small measure  to the wise administration of the  McBride government. He drew the  premier's attention to several important facts in connection with  the growing importance of Kelowna as a centre of the fruit industry,  and to the large amount of development work which was going on  in the district.  On rising to speak the premier  was greeted with demonstrations of  approval from all sides.  He   expressed  pleasure  at  the  size  of  the audience, and regret  that the campaign of 1909 did not  provide an opportunity of visiting  Kelowna  to  discuss the issues of  that election.    This was  caused,  however, by a mishap on the trip  from  Keremeos, and  they  found  when they reached Kelowna that  it  waa  too  late.   In the future it  would be an easier matter to reach  the town because of an impending  change in the manner of travelling  that   would   come   before   many  months had passed.  In the present trip he had found  on all sides a very marked  feeling  in favor of their administration, and  if there had been any hesitancy as  to the desirability of  the govern.  ment railway policy in   1909, the  second instalment  of that  policy  had been received in such a man  ner that undoubtedly informed the  government that what it   had  at  tempted in this line of development  was well designed  in the general  interests of B.C.  Speaking  on   local   matters   he  said  it  was  quite  right  that the  mayor should make pointed remarks about the government buildings in the town.   He was doing  his duty as mayor of the town to  keep to the front the requirements  of Kelowna.   They had just made  an extended trip to the government  building  up  the  road  (laughter),  and  he confessed  that it was  surprise  to  him  to  find   such   a  structure.     There   was   certainly  room  for  improvement.   But   he  would like to point out  that as a  result of the development of trans.  portation facilities the district waa  bound  to grow in importance to  such  an  extent   within   the  next  three years that any building erected  now would be entirely inadequate at the end of that time.  He contended that it would be  better to spend the $20,000 or so  on the roads.   He suggested that  there might be a proposal put forward shortly to act jointly with the  municipal authorities in the erection of a public building.  His remarks upon  the  question  of redistribution were but a reiteration  of  what   has   already   been  stated   in   this  connection.    The  government had decided that the  only safe course was to recast the  whole of  the electoral districts in  one bill. He regretted the disappointment which had been caused  but was satisfied   that the  same  Sood nature would prevail as when  ley were unable to reach Kelowna  during the last campaign, and that  be entirely responsible for this  change of affairs, but they had  managed the financial end of the  country's business in such a way  as to inspire confidence all over  the world.  Regarding the platform adopted  by the Liberals at their last convention, he had a word to say in  regard to the question of Women's [  Suffrage. The Liberal party had  included this in their platform, but  as they were not likely to come into power for at least twenty years,  this promise was worth nothing.!  ! He pointed out that the Conservn- j  | five Government hud pssed several measures which had increased  berties and oppoitunities of |  women, and drew special attention'  to the fact that women could now'  practice at the Bar of British Col-'  umbia. They did not think it wise I  at the present to give women tin  ! vole Perhaps if they waited about  ie able to  get it.  He did not claim that   the   Con-  the electors would not fail to return  Mr. Price Ellison as their representative.  Coming to the question of the  hour, the proposed railway developments, he said his audience  knew to what length the govern-1 |ne  ment had gone in the last thirty'  days in regard to railwuy extensions. They had pledged the credit  of the province to the extent of  $4,000,000 in return for the guarantee of the C. N. R. to extend  its  line from Kamloops to Kelownsu fi(, ,he    m   ^ b  1 Ins was only a part or the second  instalment of the government rail-  ��� i., ,        ,     , .        servative party was perfect.

These  provinces had made bargains with  the C. N. R. and produced a com  petitive system, which meant that  the C. P. R. in order to vie with  its new competitor had to give a  much better service. The government had considered what part  these provincial governments had  taken in bringing it about bv the  guarantee of the bonds on the  C. N. R., and felt that as several  years had gone by since this arrangement   had   been  completed  ture  The Hon. Price Ellison was called upon to speak, but he hoped  the people would excuse him as  the boat was already whistling for  their departure up the lake. He  hoped to be able to address them  upon another occasion.  Seizing a few minutes before the  party emparked, a deputation from  the Board of Trade headed by Mr.  R. B. Kerr waited on the Premier  respecting the delays in land registry business, receiving the assurance that steps were already being  that B.C might very properly and taken to remedy ,he pre9em   co|)  very safely follow the lead that  these provinces had set. There- j  fore, in their negotiations, they did  not hesitate to involve the credit I  of the province, but safeguarded  the interests of the people by a  first mortgage on the line, and  secured not only the employment  of white labor at standard wages,  but control of the rates. In Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta,  this was left in the hands of the  railway commission. He did not  question the ability of the railway  commission to control the"rates,  but thought that the people of the  province would prefer that the  government be responsible if anything was to go wrong.  The Kettle Valley Railway was  already waking up to the realization that it would have competition  and the result would be an interesting race for Kelowna. The  heads of the C.N.R. were men of  undoubted genius, and business  stability and could be depended  upon to give a first-class service.  In conclusion he referred to the  presence of the school children. It  was a pleasure to see the future  citizens of the country beginning  to take an interest in its affairs.  The Hon. W. J. Bowser dealt  chiefly with the improved financial  conditions of the province, the  growth of its revenue and increase  of confidence in the public credit.  The government did not  claim   to  dition of affairs.  The Benevolent Soriely will  meet on Thursday, March 28th at  2.30 p.m. at the home of Mrs. Jas.  Martin sr.

The expenditure on the consolidated fund  account for the eleven months has  been $77,000,000 and in capital  account $27,000,000. For the full  year the ordinary expenditure is  estimated at a little over $96,000,-  000, giving a surplus of about $35,-  000,000.  The February revenue totalled  eleven millions, an increase of one  and a half millions compared wilh  February last year.  Nominations for Provincial Election  Polling Thursday Next, March 28th.

System in Municipal  Tree Planting  Interesting    Letter   I* torn  the  Manager of the Bankhead  Ranch  It ia with pleasure I accede to a  request lo state my views on*municipal tree planting.   Befote doing  s ) I must make a personal explanation, ns being a newcomer here, it  might be considered presumption  on my part to say what I am going  to say.  Tree planting is a subject 1 have  been closely connected with for  l!ie past nine years in South Africa  and as a forest officer it whb part  ol my duties iw dui��v up icpurtsof  11 lis nature for municipalities and  to see that the work was properly  earned out. In my expetience  there was invariably a lack of  knowledge displayed in these matters and at first a difficulty was  experienced in getting the authorities to adopt proper methods. 1  can recall several instances where  the good advice was not taken  and three or four years later whole  rows of tress had to be taken out  and the planting done over again,  causing great expense and waste  of time. So to be forewarned i> lo  be forearmed.  I u ust confess my disappointment the first day I saw the trees  of KelOiVna. I hey appear lo have  been planted without any system,  the espacement vanes, species are  mixed up, unsuitable trees have  been selected, pruning has been  indifferent, and many have been  left lo their  fate   without adequate  protection,  in order.  I will take these points  Nothing  Dad  SYSILM  to my mind looks so  street as to see trees  dumped down anywhere, regardless of system; a shapely tree  growing alongside one lopped out  out of recognition, small, spreading  maple alongside an erect Lorn-  hardy poplar, at various distances  apart, etc. One has only to see  the magnificent boulevards on (he  continent of Europe to admire  them for their beauty combined  with neatness and uniformity.  these boulevards are usually composed of a single species of tree,  or two at the most, and it is this  that gives them their uniformity  and beauty.  I would impress upon the council  the necessity of fixing on some  system and adhering to it rigidly,  regardless of individual opinions,  of which some are certain to be  opposed to any scheme which  mav be adopted.  1 here is a magnificent opportunity here in Kelowna of making a  real success of tree planting and  showing an example to other  cities.  ESPACEMENT  It is n great mistake to plant  trees too closely together and I  would recommend 30 feet as being  the best distance. 1 his gives the  trees room to spread their roots  and produce good crowns. When  the trees are small this espacement  mav look too great and it .is sure  lo be suggested that they might be  planted closer with a vi,eW to taking out every alternate one when  they get larger. I would warn the  council against thia plan as it is  always a difficult thing to get  people to agree to cut down trees  in the streets when once they are  growing.  MIXING OF SPECIES  I have already mentioned this  and advise planting one kind only  in each street, or two at the most,  in which case they should be  planted alternately iu rows.  CHOICE OK TREES  In   street   planting   one   has  to  consider that there are or mav be  electric wires overhead and for  this reason it is necessary to choose  trees with a spreading crown,  Lombardy Poplars are quite unsuitable owing to their erect growth  and when lopped they look grotesque. The trees I would recommend are ���  Black Poplar (Populus Nigra),  Box Elder (Acer ncgundo),  Maples (various species Acer),  False   Acacia   (Robinia    pseuda-  cacia), j  Elm (Ulmus Americana and Ulmus  Campe jtrts),  Purple     Leaved     Plum     (Pruniw  pisadi),  Birch (Betula alba),  Mountain Ash (Pyrus aucuparia).  PRUNING  Ornamental trees do not require  to   be   pruned  like  fruit trees, all  that is necessary being   to see that  the lower branches do not interfere  wilh   pedestrians   and   the  upper  ones with the electric wires.    Care  | should be taken  when  the  tree is  growing to train it to a single stem,  I allowing the first branches to come  lout 7 feet  above  the  level of ihe  'sidewalk.    In   many   cases   where  j the   trees   are   planted   below the  level of the sidewalks  this will be  10   feet or moie up   lo   the   tree.  Alter this the trees should  require  very little pruning beyond checking  tlie height growth if they look like  interfering   with   the   wires.     Let  them spread out and  form natural  trees, do not cut them back   like a  ] man  having the clippers run over  his head.  PROTECTION  I'he protection of the trees when  growing is one of the most important things to consider and one  that is most commonly neglected.  Unless trees can be adequately  protected it is waste of time and  money to plant them at all. Anyone looking at the young trees  along Bernard Avenue can see  this. If a tree gets damaged or  broken and has to be replaced it  means leaving a gap in the whole  avenue which may take years to  fill. Personally I think the bet.1  cheap tree guard can be made by  putting three posts round the tree  and binding these round with  barbed wire; but here where  barbed wire is not much used  they may be some objection to it  In any case make the guards sub  stanlial and see that they are kepi  in repair until the trees are large  enough to take care ol themselves.  I here are one or two other  points it might be well to touch  upon. lo my mind, where the  roads are so wide as they are here  it might be possible to leave ten  feet or more ou each side in sod  and then plant a row of trees  down tbe centre so that they would  be 5 feet or more away fiom the  sidewalk and not directly under  the electric wires, if the poles aie  set on the edge of the sidewalk.  If planting is to be clone along any  new streets it would be well to  have any depressions or sloughs  idled up before planting (where  this will have to be done event-  tually).  When planting, good-sized holes  should be dug at least 3 feet deep  and 3 feet in diameter, and where  the soil is bad good soil should be  added. If the soil is alkali 10 lbs.  of gypsum should be mixed with  the soil. Ihe trees should not  stand in a saucer-shaped depression  after they are planted because  when the roads are very dusty as  they are here, this will fill up and  pile sand round the stern and harm  the tree. Plant rather on a slight  mound ; spread the roots out well  in the hole and ram the soil firmly  in the hole. It is a mistake to plant  too large trees, those 5 or 6 feet  high are the best provided they  have been properly grown in the  nursery and have been transplanted  every year. lo get the best  results the trees should be watered  a few times during the first year in  very dry weather. It will make all  the difference to them. The ground  round them should also be kept  free of weeds and be forked over  once or twice during the summer.  It would pay the city well to grow  its own nursery stock, and I am  quite sure any money spent on  tree planting on the lines 1 have  mentioned will well repay the cost  iu adding to the attractiveness of  the town. I'irst impressions are  always the most lasting, and however beautiful the orchards outside  the town may be, a visitor will  carry away a better impression if  he has seen well-planted streets on  his first arrival.  1 shall be pleased at any time to  give the council what help I can,  and I hope the remarks I have made  will not be taken amiss. I fully  realize that something has been  done iu the way of tree planting,  and that there are difficulties  financial and otherwise, but I hope  the council will now take up the  matter seriously because it is really  a matter for the council to take in  hand and ought not to be left to  private onterprise.

Uuder lowering skies and a  heavy sea, the old battleship  |" Maine," resurrected after fourteen  i years burial in Havana harbor, last  I ueaday plunged with her colors  flying, to her everlasting rest 600  fathoms deep in the waters of the  Gulf of Mexico. The sinking of  the hulk was carried out precisely  as planned, marking the end of ihe  woik begun more than a year and  a half ago.  Her decks were deep with flowers and palms and an ensign floated from the jury mast where the  mainmast formerly stood.  The arrangements for the sinking consisted of numerous valves  in the bottom of the hulk and the  large sluices in ihe bulkhead, which  with all the doors in the two permanent bulkheads remained open.  For ten minutes no change was  visible in the hulk which pitched  heavily a< the rollers struck her.  1 hen she began singing at the bulk  head. The stern rose, and in a  few seconds the hulk was almost  vertical, showing first the propellers and then the full keel. The  next moment there was a splash of  blue and white, as the ensign flying from the mast struck the water  and disappeared. Simultaneously  the decks were blown up by the  air pressure and the " Maine " sank  down leaving the flowers on the  surface of the sea. Whistle blasts  from the whole fleet were the only  salute.

A dramatic Rcene occurred in  the British House of Commons  yesterday week, when the government were being criticised for un-  preparedness for war, Rt. Hon. J.  B. S-ely, Under Secretary of State  for War, holding tip a sealed envelope containing information any  member might obtain under pledge  of secrecy explaining how, within  three days, 150,000 men could be  despatched abroad, ammunition  and stores for three months. Great  demonstration of the government  members followed this announcement.  A fatal wreck occurred last  week on the main line of the  C.P.R., at 6.45 a.m., one mile this  side of Three Valley station. The  eastbound passenger train collided  with the engine and tender of a  light engine travelling west. The  light engine was travelling at high  speed in an attempt to make Three  Valley before the passenger train  arrived at that point. As a result  of the collision Fireman Duckworth  of the passenger train was pinned  between the boiler of his engine  and the tender of ihe light engine  and instantly killed. D. Murray,  engineer of the passenger train  was injured, and Geo. Shaw, engineer of the light engine, waa slightly  injured.  Miss M.

Old Country Interest in  British Columbia  The annual report of the agent  general for this province, in London, has just been received by  Premier McBride, and covers the  work of Mr. Turner's office during  1910 and 1911. In November and  December of the former year, it is  stated, some 25 shows of Britirh  Columbia fruit were made at the  Royal Horticultural Society's Hall,  London, and at agricultural and  horticultural exhibitions in the  most important chits and towns  of Great Britain and Ireland.  " At several of these," says Mr.  Turner, " Hon. Price Ellison was  present, taking a very active pait  in the arrangements and lecturing  to the visitors. In the early months  of 1911 smaller shows were made  at Railway offices and passenger  agencies, in London, Liverpool,  Birmingham, Manchester, Sheffield  Bristol and many other places.  I lii'sc exhibitions of British Columbia fruits caused a very large  amount of correspondence from  enquirers who contemplate emigrating, and also a constant stream  of callers at the agency general,  and a very considerable number of  both the correspondents and the  callers decided to go out British  Columbia and become settlers  there. It is quite apparent that the  British Columbia Iruits and other  products constitute one of the verv  best means of diffusing correct information in Europe as to British  Columbia.  " During the whole of 1911 interest in British Columbia has been  well maintained, although undoubtedly the great ceremony connected  with the Coronation has had the  effect of diverting for a time the  thoughts of ihe people generally  from emigration matteis, but in  the Autumn and at present there  is again a greatly increased interest  amongst all classes in Great Britain  as to British Columbia, evidenced  by the large number of enquires  and also by the constant references  in the newspaper press and in  magazines and other periodicals  to the industries, the life, and the  progress of British Columbia."  The Dominion government hope  to be able to prorogue parliament  on March 31.  The I Iotel Penticton changed  hands this week, Mrs. S. Barnes  resigning her interests in the business to Messrs. J H. McDonald and  T. Johnson, who have leased the  premises for a period of five years.  A young anarchist named Antonio Dal ba fired several shots at  King Emmanuel of Italy last Friday as he was leaving the palace.  The King was unharmed. Great  demonstrations of loyalty followed.  Dalba was arrested after being  half torn to pieces by the crowd.

The meeting re school site called <  by the inspector, Mr. A. E. Miller,  of Revelstoke, had the largest  attendance of any held in this  district. This question has aroused  the interest of everyone, and in  future the school trusteeship will  be considered a much more important office than it has been in  the past. Mr. Miller spoke at some  length oh the benefits of centralization, and urged that whatever site  was decided upon no one would  advocate the division of the school  district. He then asked the secretary to read the minutes of meeting  he-Id December 21st, requesting  the trustees to locate a sile about  one-half mile from present site;  also the minutes of meeting held  February 27th, when the Porter  lot, was decided on.  After a prolonged discussion, in  which a great many took part, Mr.  Miller summed up from the evidence given and said that the  school department would have to  be shown very strong evidence to  warrant them to decide contrary to  the wishes of the majority of ratepayers, as evidenced by the meeting of February 27th. He therefore could not do other than  recommend the purchase of the lot ,  sanctioned by them and hoped for |  the future welfare of the district  and the benefits to be derived  from a central school, and that the  minority would take their disappointment in the right spirit. An  option has been taken on the  Porter lot.  Okanagan Mission  (From our own correapondent)  The Rugby-Football match  played on Saturday afternoon between teams representing Okanagan Mission and Kelowna was  regarded with more than ordinary  interest, inasmuch is it was the  " rubber " game, each side having  won once earlier in the season.  The Mission turned up with only  thirteen men, and Denman from  Kelowna played for them, while  Kelowna possessed a full complement. Play proved fast and exciting, as the ground was in excellent  condition. The keenness of the  struggle is proved by the fact that  neither line was crossed, the only  score being a penalty goal to the  Mission, awarded to them in consequence of a legal infringement.  Gore-Brown took the kick, a somewhat difficult one, and scored  amidst cheers. This was in the  first half, and both sides come near  scoring subsequently, but nothing  tangible occurred, and the Mission  retired winners of a very good  game by 3 points to nil.  You judge a man not by what he pro.  miaee to do, but by what he haa done.  That ia the only true teat. CHamberlain'a  Cough Remedy judged by thia standard  haa no superior.
