The primary reason for calling  (the meeting, President Elliott explained on taking the chair, was to  .prepare resolutions to be submitted  [to the forthcoming convention of  FBoards of Trade at Vancouver. Mr.  lElliott was reappointed president  {with D. W. Sutherland as secretary,  ^succeeding N. D.'McTavish, who  (was tendered a vote of thanks for  | his past services.  ���<    Three resolutions were submitted  I by the Summerland delegates. The  } first dealt with the ferry question,  .asking as an.alternative to a free  [service that terries and charges be  I standardized throughout the pro-  i vince, and more frequent trips be  made locally.   Another asked  for  the more speedy provision of road  [ communication with the coast, and  the third contained a request that  a portion of the. provincial tax from  automobiles be given to municipalities for road upkeep.  The development of hydro-electric power in the valley, the oriental queation, the delay at Vernon in  making the north-bound journey,  Minimum Wage is  to be $14 per Week  Regulations "Apply to Female  Workers in Fruit Industry  After two conferences, one in  Kelowna and the other in Vancouver, the Minimum Wage Board of  British Columbia recommends that  the minimum Wage for every experienced female employee engaged in the fruit and vegetable  industry who is of the age of 16  years or over that age and employed on a time rate basis, shall be  paid the sum of $14 for a week of  forty-eight hours.  |t is further recommended that  every inexperienced female employes employed in the aame  industry who ia 18 years or over  shall be paid, on a time rate basis,  $10 a week for the first month's  occupation in the said industry,  $11 a week for the second month's  occupation and $ 12 a week for the  third month's occupation.   , 0  The Worren's Institute will hold  their annual meeting on Saturday,  January 3rd.

Several shots were fired  at the viscount in Phoenix Park  while he was motoring from Ash-  town station to the vice-regal lodge.  Although a number of bullets  struck the automobile Lord French  was not hit. Most of the accounts  agree that four or five shots were  fired, one of which narrowly missed the lord lietenant's chauffeur.  A cyclist policeman who formed  part of the escort was shot in the  foot, An automobile which was  following that containing Lord  French and bearing other members  of, the party, was shattered by the  firing and its driver was injured.  Rutland News  (From our own sr>l'rr>aIH>ndsllU.  The Athletic Club has decided  to hold another dance on Thursday, January 8th.  Ihe Methodist Sunday School  held its annual entertainment Tuesday evening, the programme consisting of songs and recitations by  the children���and, of course, a  visit from Santa Claus, who distributed gifts of candies and fruit.  The Y.P.S. elected its officers  Friday evening for the new year.  The president ia Elwood Fleming;  vice-pres., J. Bamling ; sec.-treas.,  Miss D. Turner. Discussion took  place as to the form of meetings  and it was decided that at (three  meetings out of four the usual hymn  and prayer be dispensed with and  patriotic songs substituted. It was  also decided to permit dancing at  the meetings of the society.  . The closing concert of the school  took place last Thursday afternoon  and was a very pleasant affair.  There was a large attendance of  parents and friends of the scholars.  tn addition to the programme of  recitations, drills and musics  itema given below, there was an  interesting exhibition of scholars'  work, including -manual training,  models, drawing and paper work  A collection was taken to provide  an emergency cot tor the school.

JAMES H. TRENWITH  AGENT  Tk* Electric Ihop, Kelowna  Restrictions On Liquor  Trade Off Next Week  With the coming of the New  Year, Canada returns practically  to a basis of peace. War-time restrictions imposed by order-in-  council under the War Measures  Act, will (with some exceptions)  be removed. And, in the case of  exceptions, the orders-in-councils  terminate at the end of the next  session of Parliament. The wartime restrictions which will cease  to be operative on Januaty 1st,  include those on race-track betting  and on importation, manufacture  and interprovincial trade in alcoholic liquors.  The orders-in-council remaining  in force include: Pulp and paper  control; coal and sugar control;  silver coinage; trading with the  enemy ; exportation of gold ; internment operations; greater production on Indian reserves; censorship.  Removal of the restrictions imposed by orders-in-council on the  liquor trade ends a phase of federal  action' which opened nearly two  yeara ago. Within a few weeka of  the union government coming into  power, the use of grain for distil-  ation' of liquors was forbidden.  From the last day of December,  1917, importation of liquor containing more than 21 per cent, proof  spirit was r leu. Three months  later there was a further order-in-  council passed prohibiting manufacture and interprovincial trade.  These orders-in-council are to  terminate with the close of the  present year.  Abrogation of the federal orders-  in-council does not, of course, affect  restrictions on sale imposed by the  various provincial legislatures. In  all the provinces, except Quebec,  prohibitory legislation is in force ;  and in Quebec the legislation per  mita merely the aale of light wines  and beer. There is further a federal statute in existenccwhich prohibits importation for sale of liquor  into provinces where sale in auch  province is prohibited. But, with  the close of the present year, there  will apparently be no restrictions  on importations for personal use.  Under enabling legislation passed  by "Ithe Dominion Parliament last  session, however, it will be within  the competence of a province to  have all importations into its territory prohibited.  The act of last session provides  that on the request of any provincial legislature, the Dominion Government can hold a provincial  referendum on the question as to  whether or not importations are to  be prohibited so far as that particular province is concerned. If  the referendum goes in the affirmative, the Dominion Government  will then issue a proclamation for  bidding importation.  ...501  ...480  ....454  ....436  ....424  ....404  High School Xmas Exam.

Jean Black  Increase Assistance  To Kelowna Hospital  Government Allot $30,000 for  "Better Housing" in Kelowna  A deputation from the Kelowna  Hospital Society waited upon the  council at Monday's meeting, asking that the city grant $1000 to  cover the cost of installation of the  tranaformer for the new X-ray  machine, the light and water rates  for 1919, and a portion of the coat  of repairing the road, the balance  of the cost of the road to be repaid  by the hospital in four or five annual inatalments. Messrs. Ball,  Binger, McTavish and Ballard presented the claims of the hospital,  and after a good deal of discussion  it was decided that the previous  decision of the council in reference  to the transformer be rescinded,  and that the cost of same be charged to the electric light capital account, that no account be rendered  to the hospital for repairing the  road and sidewalk and that the  usual grant of the light and water  ratea for the month be made. The  deputation expressed their gratification at this generous treatment.  The Kelowna Storage Ltd., wrote  stating their intention to erect a  storage warehouse near the Growera' Exchange and asked permission to have a loading platform  abutting or to Water street. This  was given.  Arrangements were made to receive nominations for mayor, aldermen and school trustees, on  Monday, January 12th, between  12 and 2 p.m., and the poll, if  necessary, on Thursday, Jan, 15th.  It was also decided to hold a  public ratepayers' meeting prior to  nomination day.  The auditors' salary was raised,  upon request, to $300 per year.  With reference to the salary ot  the city clerk, the Mayor (stated  that aa he held the most important  position in the city's service, it was  only right that he should be paid  the highest salary. As one employee was in receipt of $175 per  month and another would receive  $185 from January 1st, he suggested that the clerk*a salary be placed  at $2,250 per year. He said that  during the twelve years Mr. Dunn  had been in the city's employ he  (the mayor) had been on the council, and he waa fully conversant  with the efficient and conscien-  scious manner in which the duties  of the clerk's office had been discharged.  Several other aldermen corroborated the mayor's atatement aa to  the value of Mr. Dunn to the city,  and a resolution embodying the  suggestion was carried.  Particulara ot a provincial government scheme of "Better Housing," under which the city is loaned  sum of $30,000 to provide homes  for working men (preference being  given to returned soldiers), was  aid on the table and a committee  appointed to deal with it.  709  616  561  553  544  522  504  489  486  470  Clifford Cunningham 457  Edward Small  Percy Andrews   Bert Dalgleish   Frances Anderson  Jack Buckland    Nellie Patterson   Winnie Glaister  ...  .451  ..44  .421  ..415  Application has been made to  the marine department by the  Okanagan Lake boatmen for a  lighthouse at Trout Creek point,  and another at the north point of  Kelowna. They are also asking  for a more powerful light'on Squally  Point.  The United Church Sunday  School held ita annual Christmas  entertainment Tueaday evening.  The new Empreas theatre waa filled to the doors with parents and  friends of the children, who gave  a long and varied programme of  drills, recitations, songs and dialogues, in a most interesting way.  Dominion government Hydro-  Engineer Geoffrey Porter has been  viaittng Okanagan pointa personally invesligsting possibilities in  connection with the proposed  power plailt at Shuswap Falls. The  people of northern Okanagan want  the Dominion government to develop a hvdro-electric system from  Shuswap Falls, providing power  for all points between Salmon Arm  and Kelowna. Kamloops may slso  be included) and, if found feasible,  4101 the system would eventually be  336 extended south from Kelowna to  3241 cover tha southern Okanagan.  ��' P AGB TWO  KELOWNA  RECORD  Thursday, December 25.191*  SYNOPSIS OF OOAL MINING  REGULATIONS  Coal mining rights of tbe Dominion  In Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, the Yukon Territory, the Northwest  Territories, and In portion of the Province of British Columbia may be leased for a term ol twenty-one years at  an annual rental of fl an acre.

The articles  will be judged by a committee to be  appointed by Hon. J. A. Calder,  minister of immigration and colonization, and should be mailed not  later than February Nth, 1920, to  the director of publicity for the department. Three cash prizes will  be given, one of $75, one of $50  and one of $25, in each ofthe nine  provinces.  It iB explained that the competition is not a literary contest, the  official announcement stating that:  "Literary style, correct spelling etc.,  will not be considered essential.  Tell your Btory in your own words."  It is believed that the procuring of  a number of graphic and truthful  atories of how success has been  won from the soil in all parts of the  Dominion will do much to contribute to a future movement to Canada of the right class of settlers.  Full details of the competition  are given on a poster hanging up  in every post office throughout  Canada.  The captain, first mate, fourth  engineer, wireless operator and  thirty-nine of the crew ol the Britiah steamer Manxman were drowned when their ship foundered in  mid-Atlantic on Thursday last.  Experiments conducted by Yakima fruit by-produce manufacturers  to determine the. value in their  business of the apples that suffered  from the recent freeze have led to  the interesting discovery that the  juice from frozen apples develops  a much higher content in alcohol,  acetic acid, and sugar than do unfrozen fruit, rendering such fruit  particularly valuable for the making  of vinegar. These experiments  showed that, after being bottled  only a short time, the juice of frozen  fruit contained three-tenths of one  per cent, of alcohol, where unfrozen fruit juice contained no  alcohol.���J. A. G. in Agricultural  Journal.  ORDERS by command for week  ending Thursday, January 8th,  1920.  DUTIES: Orderly patrol for the  week Cougars, and alao for week  following; next for duty, Beavers.  PARADES: The combined troop  will parade at the clubroom on  Tuesday, January 6th, 1920, at 7 15  p.m.  Colonel Belson and Inspector  Lord haye been kind enough to  offer to give a lecture to the troop  at any time convenient. The subject of Colonel Belson's lecture will  be "Feld Sketching" and we hope  this will take place shortly after the  new year, the exact time of which  we have not yet decided.  We take the opportunity through  thia column of wishing all officers,  former members of the troop and  scouts a very merry Christmas and  a happy and prosperous new year.  In connection with the all important subject, basket-ball, we  may say that owing to the kindness  of the directors of the A. & T. Association in giving us the use of  the exhibition hall and to the  energy of certain members of the  troop in cleaning out the hall generally, we shall be able to start  practising this week. The following scouts deserve great credit for  the work done by them in cleaning the hall and making the floor  and everything generally shipshape. We wish to state that if  there are to be any special basketball advantages, they will be the  ones to benefit by them. These  are their names: John Aitken,  Ralph Ball, B. McCarthy, C. Cun-  ningham, H. Mantle, E. Groves,  James Laidlaw and Ewen Hunter.  The first matches of the season  we hope to have on boxing day, if  circumstances of the day before  will allow. On that day we intend  to have about three matches, commencing with the beginners at 2  o'clock, the matches to last half an  hour each. This will give us an  opportunity of trying out any new  playe. a and adjusting teams for  regular practice. On Monday, the  29th of the month, the beginners  will again turn out at 7.1-5 p.m.  and the "number two'a" at 8.15  p.m. On Friday practice will be  held for the "number two's" at  7.15 p.m. and for the seniors at  8.15 p.m.  If of course the weather permits,  we may have skating on boxing  day instead of basket-ball.  We are pleased to notice the  faces of two old membera of the  troop in town in the persons of  Charles and Leonard Gaddes, who  are spending their Christmaa vacation here.  -THE--  Veteran Meat Market  have  a  fine  display   of  good  Heifer   and   Steer.
