NOVEMBER 29, 1917.-4 PAGES  Annum  V  New Members Take  Places On Council  Make Grant to Hospital Society  Departing from its regular custom of morning meeting!, the city  council met at 8 p.m., the evening  of Monday last. The firat butinesa  was the tormal swearing in of the  two new members, Aid. W. Lloyd-  Jones and Aid. J. B. Knowles, who,  as the returning officer's declaration  s*ated, had been elected by acclamation the previous Monday to the  twp vacancies in the south ward  After taking the customary oath of  office, the new aldermen took their  seats at the table, receiving the  friendly. greetings of their fellow  members.  The Kelowna Hospital Society  was represented by a deputation  consisting of Messrs. H. B. Burtch,  P. DuMoulin, D. Leckie, and G.  Meikle, who applied to the council  for a grant towards the support of  that institution. It has been  customary for some years past for  the council to grant to the Hospital  an amount equal to the light and  water. rates for the current year,  and his Worship intimated that the  council would be willing to do the  same this year.  A long letter was read from the  manager of the Kelowna Steam  Laundry in reference to the disposal of the waste water from the  laundry, which had been made  the subject of recent complaints to  lhe council. He outlined the various means which he had taken  during the past few years to solve  the problem and the different  drains and contrivances which had  been constructed upon the advice  of the Medical Health Office and  other city officials, all of which had  been successful only for a time.  In conclusion he said he was  again beset by complaints, and  was willing to do the best possible  in reason, but could not afford any  unnecessary expense, or any more  experiments suggested "by people  who knew little or nothing of the  problem.-  It was decided that the Health  committee should make an official  visit to the place and report the  result of their investigation.  Some coirespondence was read  in connection with the matter of  the claim of the C.N.R. for exemption of their lands in the city from  taxation, and which has been the  subject of prolonged litigation. An  offer of a compromise had been  made but it had been deemed advisable to leave the matter in the  hands of the counsel engaged.  A resolution was passed recording the sympathy of the council  with Mayor Sutherland and Aid.  W. C. Duggan, each of whom had  recently lost sons in the war.  Applications for a position on  the office staff to fill the vacancy  caused by the resignation of Mr.  F. V. Royle were received from  Messrs. H. W. A.buckle and W.  A. A. Newton. In view of the satisfaction given by Mr. Arbuckle  whilst substituting for Mr. Royle  during the past five months, the  Finance Committee recommended  his appointment. The appointment  was therefore confirmed by resolution and the salary fixed at one  hundred dollars per month.  A resolution was also passed increasing the salaries of Messrs. J.  McMillan, chief engineer of the  power house, and P. T. Dunn, city  assessor, by ten dollars per month.  A Court of Revision of the municipal voter's list was arranged, consisting of His Worship the Mayor  and Aid. Rattenbury and Duggan,  to be held in the council chamber  on Monday, December I Oth, at 10  o'clock a.m.  Aid. Duggan on behalf of the  Light and Water committee, recommended that tenders be called  for onehundred to five hundred  cords of wood for the power house  same to be in by noon on December I Oth. Instructions were given  accordingly.  Aid. W.Lloyd-Jones wat appoint  ed chairman of the Health committee, and Aid. J. B. Knowles chairman of the Parks and Cemeteries  committee.  The Parks and Cemeteries com-  mittee was authorized to arrange  for the erection of a small shelter  at the cemetery at an approximate  cost of fifty dollars.  It was arranged  that the next  Kelowna's War Loan  Passes $150,000  Likely to Go   Much  Higher  Before Campaign Closes  Although Kelowna at the outset  of the campaign for the Victory  Loan was only asked by the provincial organizers for $50,000, it  was thought by some that this was  a vf ry sanguine estimate of what  might be expected from the district, especially in view of the somewhat strenuous times through  which we have been passing. No  more eloquent testimony need be  sought that this depression is passing, and that money is becoming  more plentiful than the fact that  with several days of the Loan campaign period still to run, this figure  haa been trebled. There is apparently no room for doubt as to the  determination of the people of  Kelowna to sea the thing through.  One of the leading cities of the  Dominion in the number of soldiers sent to the war. in proportion  to the population, Kelowna has no  hesitation in sending money too,  and promises to be high in the list  of contributors to the War Loan.  Up to last night a total of $150,  550 had been subscribed by 583  different purchasers. Yesterday  was also the record day, $23,000  having been reported, against $22,  550, the next highest, for the dav  before.  Saturday afternoon last the Loan  was brought prominently before  the public by the parade which  started from the Lakeview Hotel  at three o'clock, heralded by blasts  of the city whistle. The procession was lead by a Scout carrying  the Union Jack. Next came the cube and  moro acouta awheel and carrying banners,  another bunch of cubs distributing adver  tiring literature. About a score of auto,  owners joined in with thoir cara decorated  with flage and posters, prominent amongst  chem being the fire truck with a streamer  giving groat prominence to Sherman's  famous remark. Mr. T. S. Ruffol who haa  been looking after the publicity end of the  campaign waa there with his bicycle decorated. The procession paaaed up Main  street and around Harvey Ave., breaking  up whan it reached the business section  again. It achieved ita purpose of drawing  the attention of everyone to the claima of  the Loan.  More of the Boya Come  Home  As the "Sicamous " came to the  wharf Tuesday afternoon she gave  the joyous toot-tpot which has  come to be associated with the return of our soldier boys from the  front. As the crowd hurried down  to the landing, they found that  three of the Kelowna men had  come back, two of them at least,  having been through aome of the  fiercest of the trench fighting in  France.  Rae Ritchie, eldest son of Mr.  George Ritchie, as a real Kelowna  boy, a former student in the school,  and well - known to practically  everyone in the place, received a  royal welcome. He was at McGill  when he joined up with the university corps early in the war,  being drafted later to reinforce the  "Princess Pats." He was with that  famous regiment during many of  their earlier exploits. An epidemic  of measles, which went through  the trenches got him eventually,  and he was sent back to undergo  a course of hospital treatment.  Returning again to the hardship  of the trenches, and probably a  little toofsoon, the malady known  as "trench feet" began to bother  him, and after a time grew so bad  as to incapacitate him from further  service. He is at present home  on a short leave, and must return  to the convalescent hospital at the  coast, but it is likely that he will  get his discharge.  The second to return was Mab  McDougal, of Westbank. He went  away with the 172nd, and later  joined a draft for the trenches.  Falling a victim to the poison gas  he was invalided home.  Pte. Frank Robbins was returned  in accordance with the' present  regulations as under age. His  father and older brother are still  overseas.  meeting should take place on Monday eveniug December I Oth at 8  Ipjtn.  by Board of Trade  May Form Auto Club to Work  for Better Roads  At the Board of Trade meeting  Tuesday evening Mr. Lionel E.  Taylor gave a short address on the  "Rule of the Road," a proposal to  change which and bring the province in line with the rest of the  Dominion had been discussed at  a previous meeting. Mr. Taylor,  although recognizing the advantages of a uniform practice, was not  favorably disposed to any change  being made.  At the present timo he believed B.C  and Nova Scotia to be the only province*  where the rule of the road ii to keep to  the left in pawing. The remaining provinces and in the U.S.A. it was to keep to  the right.  The agitation to alter the rule of the  road for B.C. came altogether from motorists who found it inconvenient when  touring in the States, and vice versa, to  have to alter their accustomed habits. It  was true that many  accidents Had taken  Elace at the coast which had been attri-  uted to confusion arising from the road  rules. This was probably the strongest  argument the advocates of altering the  B.C. rule had to put up. It was claimed  that several hundred accidents occurred  annually on either side of the boundary  amengst a few thousand touring cars and  that if the rule of the road was uniform  such accidents would not occur.  If that was the case when only a small  proportion of B.C's total traffic was concerned, how many accidents would there  be during the first few months when all  would be confused if the rule was changed and affected all traffic in the province ?  There would be terrible slaughter!  To further analyse the motorists' argu  ment for the change, it had to be admitted that when an accident occurred it was  the touring motorist's fault because the  native of the country would naturally be  on the correct side of the road I The  question then boiled down to either for-  getfulness or carelessness on the part of  the motorist, neither of which were valid  excuses for endangering life. The motorist should have his wits about him and  his car under control. Most accidents, he  thought, were attributable to cars being out  of control due to excessive speed. In,  places where the road was good and on  the straight there waa always a tendency  for road hogs to let their cars go to the  danger of other frequenters of the road.  ' Here in the Okanagan such practices  were rarely indulged in owing to the nature of the roads which prohibited excessive speed to the road hog himself.  He had read an amusing account of the  state of traffic in Petrograd after the revolution where drivers on being remonstat-  ed with, said that Russia was now a free  country and the people free to do as they  liked and to' drive which side of the road  they liked.  We were a free people but respected  our laws and customs aiN were conservative about having them changed, and he  thought the majority of 'people wonld resent a change in the rule of the road.*��ft  In Austria-Hungary both the right and  left rules.prevoiled varying according to  district. Here was a highly-civilized European country permitting the two rules  within its own empire.  He admitted that uniformity of the rule  throughout Canada would have its advantages, especially when the great trans  continental highway was completed.  A serious objection to altering the rule  had been made in Vancouver on behalf  of the B.C. Electric trams as such change  would involve enormous expense in altering the cars and tracks.  Coming to the question of good roads,  he said they were essential to the progress of the country. The United States  had gone very fully into the matter and  had prepared statistics showing tlie cost  of hauling on good and bad roads. Good  roads were a great asset to any farming  community.  The idea of changing the rule of the  road failed to find a single advocate, notwithstanding the admitted disadvantages  of being different fiom other provinces  and our neighbours across the border.  Mr. M. Hereron said that chief amongst  the objectors would be the horses which  had learnt to take the left side in passing  vehicles, a habit which it would be hard  to change.  Mr. Chick said he had heard it claimed  that a driver keeping to the left and sitting  to the right of his vehicle had better^ con.  trot of his team than he would have if the  positions were reversed.  The discussion eventually resolved itself  into a general recognition of the need for  better roads, both for hauling produce and  for motor traffic, and it was concluded  that the best way to secure this was to  organize an automobile cine or good roads  association which would be interested in  keeping watch upon the condition nf the  roads and urging the matter upon the government.  Finally it was decided to appoint Messrs. DuMoulin, Rogers and Hereion as a  sub-com mittee to obtain all information  as to the formation of such an organiza-  tien and report to a subsequent meeting.

Notes By An Onlooker  If anyone had visited these parts  five years ago to pick up $150,000  for the Dominion Government at  5�� per cent, the results would not  have paid his hotel bill. Town  lots at home and abroad, shares in  Vancouver an'd oil wells anywhere,  we knew and loved, but government loans were placed in London  and New York after lunch, and  we would surely have smelled a  gold brick if any handsome stranger had offered that stuff here.  Now, some fine old crusted savings accounts that have slept for  years give a Rip Van Winkle sigh  and turn over and ou! on the  broad highway to Ottawa. Six  hundred folks in this district will  hear the crisp aristocratic crackle  of a bond and itch to get the  scissors at work on that June 1st  coupon. Then comes the desert  which takes six months to cross  before the next oasis is reached.  Coupons are cash and will doubtless be in evidence everywhere  in church collections.  Nearly 1600 men have joined  up from the district and now Kelowna Is beginning to stake her  wealth. Including subscriptions  to the thiee previous loans we  have put up about $250,000. It  will not strain the majority but  there must be many subscribers  who are making sacrifices to fee!  tlie satisfaction crj taking a part in  the great war.  The idea of the Dominion treasurer is to enlist some of the loose  money that would otherwise go  into motor cars, bacon, trips to the  tropics or other frivolous luxuries.  Food Controller Hanna keeps on  with his warnings and appeals but  Sir Thomas White is out to get the  money first.   Some sense in that  Some people are wondering  whether the new war loan will  drop below par on the stock ex  changes and whether they wil  lose much   if thev   have to sell at  JATS DIRT  '*4tiHiu^  GILLETT5  LYE  really superior and pays interest  in addition. In theory the dollar  bill  will be exchanged in gold but  n practice you could not get a  five dollar gold piece for six of  them. It all comes to ���this, that  Dominion bonds will remain at par  or over just as soon as people de  ide to trade with them on lh��  principle of  the present dollar bil  nd to ignore stock exchange quo  tations. A Canadian dollar is not  currency in New York but we  don't worry about it.  It is reported that the Central  Okanagan liquidator has made a  cash discount offer to those requiring deeds. This is good news.  When a liquidator tries to give  anything away free, it is wise to  go up in an aeroplane until he has  "hung it on someone" for it is  usually loaded with taxes and arrears of interest; but when he  leaves his dug-out after many  years and comes over the top with  a genuine cash discount it is well  to hold your breath and reach for  a blank cheque for it means you  have a chance to get in on the  ground floor.  ���BENVOULIN  CIEANS-DISINFECTS-USED FOR  SOFTENING WATER���FOR MAKING  HARD AND SOFT SOAP ,FyiJ.

Nov. 27, 1917  The Russians and Germans on  the Eastern front have opened formal negotiations for an armistice.  Foreign Minister Trotsky, of the  Russian Bolsheviki, has asked all  the allies to revise their war aims,  and threatens that if the request is  not answered, the Bolsheviki will  consider a separate Russia peace  as justified.  The Bolsheviki government today announced the abolition of all  nobility titles and the confiscation  of all corporate property of nobles,  merchants and burgesses.  General Plummer has been made  commander of the British forces  in Italy. Lieutenant-General Sir W.  Marshall has been named successor  to the late General Maude, commander of the Mesopotnmian forces.  The French government has absolute proof that the German spy  system sent'Lenine; the Bolsheviki  leader to Russia. This was announced following a report of a  news agency that the Bolsheviki  proposed an immediate armistice.  Orders by command for week  ending Dec. 8th, 1917.

We shall, there,  fore, have the silver crosses and  other badges presented at our annual Christmas bun feed, which  will be held this year on either  Thursday ot Friday of the week  before Christmas.  s s  We have lost another member of  our troop in the person of Scout  Charles Copeland, who his gone  to live with his family at the ranch  they have purchased near Lumby,  B.C. He was a second-class scout  a member of the Eagle Patrol, and  attended camp last year with the  troop. We wish him the best of  luck in his new home.  The scout master received a letter from P.-L. Francis Buck last  week. He joined the artillery as  you will remember, and writes  that he finds his scout training ha  helped him a great deal. Th  qualifications for signalling which  he has to master, include the b  zer, lapsp, helio, flag,  at  8   words  (40 letters) a minute. They also  have to qualify at repairing phones  and all sorts of telegraph, line and  exchange ' work, including map  reading. They take the semaphore  as well as Morse in England,  though the former was unheard of  in Canada.  . Francis is very anxious to have  news of the scouts, and at the time  of writing he had not received any  mail for a long time as it had been  chasing him all round without  reaching him. We hope you will  all write to him. His address is:  Gunner F. C. Buck, 339756, "D"  Battery, Canadian Reserve Artillery, Witley Camp, Milford, Surrey,  England.  a  s a  Summerland troop is unfortunately losing three of her four patrol leaders almost immediately.  This is a very severe, loss indeed  to any troop, and we know how it  would affect us. We trust, however,  that Summerland will recover from  the loss and come up again smiling.  s   .    a  Two more cubs joined the pack  ast week, which now gives them a  membership of 27. Mr. Heneage  has written to us asking us to con-  vey his congratulations to Cub-master Gordon on the increased  strength of his pack, which we are  happy to do.

Copeland was the scene Tuesday evening of a little surprise  gathering of friends who had assembled to take leave of the family  on the occasion of their leaving  Kelowna for the farm recently  purchased by. Mr. Cepelar.d near  Lumby. The affair was quite an  impromptu one, and although  some fifty persons were present,  many more would have been  pleased to pay their respects to the  host ahd hostess had the arrangement been better known. The  coadiality shown bp all the visitors  was evidence of the great esteem  in which Mr. and Mrs. Copeland  have been held during their many  yeai a residence in the city. While  all regretted to see them leave for  fresh fields, the hope was heartily  expressed that they would meet  with happiness and success in  their new surroundings. Supper  was provided by Mr. and Mrs.  Copeland with their usual hospitality, and several musiual items added to the pleasure of the evening.  Although Mr. Copeland has been  engaged upon hia farm during the  past season, the family remained  in Kelowna, and he has been here  this week for the purpose of pack-  ing up. He expects that the car  with the furniture will be moved  out Saturday.  The current year's city taxes are  subject to 12i per cent, rebate if  paid on or before FRIDAY. NOV-  EMBER 30th.
