NO. 3;  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THU|*$DAY, DECEMBER 9, 1915.-6 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Kelowoa Boy Speaks of  Life In Trenches  Private Henry Lefevro oi the 99th  Battalion (Tobin's .Tigers) now in th*  tranche* writes' thi* week a letter to  on* ef the Record staff in whioh he  tell* of life under German' shell tire.  Private Lefevre left Kelowna last year  with the B. C. Horn but was taken  sick at Valcartior and had to return  to the coast where he enlisted in the  29th, which battalion is now somewhere in Prance.  "Those germane" he says, "have not  got me yet,.��nd I am not going to  give them muoh show, a* their snipers  are sure crftok shots. We had quite  a that with some of the fellows aaros*  the way. One of them shouted 'Don't  shoot, we want to talk to you.' So'  we got up and had our first good look  at a German. Wo asked them how  they were getting along for feed and  one of them told us they had sausages  for breakfast and no dinner at all- So  I guess they are having a hard time.  "It is beginning to get rather cold  over here just now and it is a mighty  long time to spring.  "You should hear one of their coal  boxes burst near you, or a mine go  off. When the big shell*.</all near 1 u  a fellow begins to think that the earth  ha* suddenly split open, and when the  dirt that it has kicked up begins to  fall yon wonder, if you are going to be  buried alive. Then when you take a  look at the hole it has made���about  eight feet deep and tqelve feet across  you think you are mighty luoky to be  alive.  "When one of their mines explode under your trenches it fairly makes the  earth rock. You think you are baok  on the Atlantic again. You begin to  get sea sick. When you hear the machine guns and rifles pop you imagine  a little hell has broke loose near you.  Then our artillery gets busy. I tell  you when all this is going on your  thoughts are mighty serious ones,"  HENRY.  A Chinese gambling den was raided*  last Saturday afternoon by the polios  and the' proprietor Ah Sing was arrested. He was brought up Tue*day  before Magistrate Weddell and fined  160.

O   Boy Scouts and Militarism  American Chief Scout Says They Are  Deserting Primary Objects  Ernest Thompson-Seton,. naturalist  and writer of books on nature has an-  nounoes his resignation as chief scout  of the Boy Scouts of America. In a  statement explaining his action, Mr.  Seton said he resigned because o f a  gradual change toward policies to  whioh he is opposed, and for which  he blames James E. West, of New  'York, the present chief scout executive, ���  "Militarism now comes first and]  woodcraft, the original purpose of the  movement, second," according to Mr,  Seton, who announces the formation  of the Woodcrafts League, inviting  members of the Boy Scouts to join- it.  "When Baden-Powell and I organized the Boy Scouts of England in  1908 and the Boy Scouts of America  in 1910." Mr. Seton's statement said,  "our purpose was to make all young  people outdoors children by touching  them the joys of outdoor life. "  "The study of trees, flowers and  nature," he continued, "is giving way  t'o wig-wagging, drills 0nd other activities of a military naturo;'  Kelowna Poultry nation  Bold Annual Winter Show  High Quality Stock is Outstanding Feature of Exhibits  Generous Support Given by Local Merchants  The Kelowna Poultry Association  annual winter show took place last  Wednesday and Thursday, and in spite  of the many difficulties which beset  such event* at the present time, prov-  DIVISION I  Pupils attending during month  3U  Average attendance   8B.1  The average* in th* various grades  are as follow*:  Entrance Class.���Mildred F0rd, A'.ms  Wilson. i  Junior Fourth.���Dallas Tanner, An  nie Wilson.

This latter was achieved by careful economy of management  coupled with gen;r0us public support  and as a result the association will  not only pay all prizes and other  liabilities in full, but will have a small  surplus beside*.  The' quality of the exhibits was the  outstanding feature, and although (1*  total entry list showed a slight falling  off, there was no diminution of the  really good stock. The shortage id  has been suggested was due to tl��  killing off by a good many people of  their scrub birds owing to the high  price ol feed during the fall. In the  end however this will probably prove  a benefit to the industry locally aait  will tend to thin out much -of tho inferior stook.  In some classes the competition w**  particularly keen, notably in the White  Leghorns and Rhode Island Reds and  some very fine birds were shown. The  dressed poultry and egg displays too  were unusually lai'ir'.  The judge, Mr. H. E. Waby, of En-  derby, one of the foremost poultry  men in the province, had nothing but  praises for'the class of birds produced  in the Kelowna distriot. There was  no doubt he said as to the ability oi  Kelowna poultry keepers lo produo*  the right kind of stock. What was  needed was ' ' '"��� nr<ranization of tb*  marketing end of the Vms;n ss.  The association desorve every credit  for the successful outcome of their annual event, and thoi- officers are to re  congratulated for the undaunted spirit  with which- thev handled the undertaking in face of the present conditions.  The superintendence of the show was  in the hands of Mr. D. Ennis, the president of the association and th*  secretary, Mr. Alt Notley, who also  acted as assistant to the judge.  The management was handicapped  the first day owing to the absence of  lights in the building, the city having  removed the trsns'ormer and being  unahle to replaoe it at once. However  through the kindnres of Mr. J. Tren-  with a supply of oil mantle lamps w-is  procured for tho second evening. Mr.  St0ckwell also lent a heater which added to the'comfort of the building,  Following is a list of the prize  winners:  ASIATIC  Krahmas ��� All awards. Mack Copeland.

Best Egg and Boaster Pen, 1st, **ok  wheat, donated by Kelown* Growers  Than wa�� a considerable ai  present last night in th* Board oi  Trad* room to hear an address una**  the auspice* oi the local prohibition  committee by tho Rev. J. S. Header-  son oi Vancouver.  Mr. Henderson ia a foroeful and witty speaker, with as inexhaustible supply oi good stories to illustrate his  points,aand he kept his nearer* fully  amused. T>  Prefacing.his- remark* with a refer-  ice to the greatness and natural  wealth oi British Columbia he condemned the tendency to regard the mere  development oi natural resource* a*  true progress. "Woe betide the nation  he said whioh neglects to put the pro  per emphasis on the ethical and moral." It was still righteousness which  exalted a nation and there could- be  no true 'progress unless we remembered  that. The beet harvest a country  could produce was good and noble  men, and the largest asset the province could have was not in mine*, or  fisheries, or in agriculture, but ia. the  character of its boys and girls, men  and women. How did B. 0, stand  judged along that line. He thought  he was safe in Saying we were no bet  ter than we should be.  The presence of the liquor traffic in  our midst was one of the evils oi  which we were guilty. It was a mor  al and economio blunder, the supreme  foe of the.state. The general realiza  tion of this was at the bottom oil the  new crusade against liquor. The time  was about due for a new forward  movement in moral progress.  He sketched the remarkable pro  grass that hftd been made during recent years in temperance reform, mor*  especially since the outbreak oi the  war. Russia had, experienced a mighty  uplift as the result of tb* abolition  oi vodka, France had also banished  the deadly absinthe, and in Great Britain, notwithstanding the opposition  oi liquor interests the government had  gradually got control. The movement had nearly enveloped the whole  oi Canada, B. C. being the only pro  vinos whioh had done nothing a* yet  against the liquor traffic. Was it because B. C. did not dare? The liquet  interests, he laid, were the best organized body in the provinoe, and ii  the temperanos people thought they  would carry their reform easily they  wen deceived. It would be a fight  and a tough one���but a light to a  finish. They did not ask th* government for any favor*, but just * iair  chance at the polls. In a democratic  country this was only their right t-ad  they meant to insist upon it.  Dealing with some oi tho objections  which had been raised against prohi  bition, he said he had bean told that  to close up the bars would hurt business. Did any people there seriously  believe that the business oi Kelown*  or the valley depended upon th*  .mount ol liquor sold? It was an intuit to their intelligence. Any business, he declared whioh did not benefit th* buyer as well a* th* seller, was  immoral.  Waa it not better, he had been asked  to licence * few plac<s that h*v* *  lot oi blind pigs?  This argument was an old standby  ol the opposition, but he did not think  they need be afraid of blind pigs. The  law could deal with them. The liquor  traffic was a delier of the law and it  was likely there would be some illegal  ���oiling lor a time. Besides it was difficult to get the evil out of the nation's system. But when they had  got th* traffic baoked into holes, and  oaves and dens, they had got it out  oi the way oi the boys, and when they  had made it bide itself in diagram it  would not be long belore it was banished altogether.  He condemned the prinoiple oi compensation as an injustice to the publio who had already been injured  enough by the liquor business.  Prohibition, he said, dealt with th*  liquor traffic, a��d not with the hotel  business, which was one of the best  businesses in the country. What they  proposed was to take away the evil  which had been grafted oh to it.  He challenged, hi* audience to produce one single intelligent argument  which would justify the exietenoe of  the bar.  His remarks on personal liberty were  amusing and convincing. The Hquor  traffic would let no one alone.   It  New Rotations for  Shipping Live Poultry  Th* attention oi poultry shippers it  drawn to th* following new regulation*  which have been issued by the Dominion Eipre** Co., regarding the shipment of live poultry in crate*, nnd  which come into affect on January lit,  1916.  The regulations state that coop* oi  standard construction now in use with  side* and end* slatted, but not conforming to the following measurement*  will be accepted only until January  lit, 1015.  Coops containing live poultry tor  market or consumption muat have  aides, ends and top* slatted. Tops  with slate more than li inches apart  must be protected by wire netting.  Coops containing chickens or lucks  must not be less than 12 inches, nor  greater than 16 inches in height for  each tier of bird*. Coops containing  turkeys or geese must not be lets than  16 inches nor more thftn 22 inches in  height for each tier.  Coops must not exceed 30 inches in  width and 48 inohes in length. Shipments of live poultry in broken or  weak-jointed coops, and coops not conforming to the above measurements  must be refused.  In returning empty crates they must  be cleaned out and dead birds removed'  therefrom belore they will be received  for transportation.  A Sunday raorn'ng par*de waa held  in the East Kelowna school grounds  oi tbe East Kelowna Volunteer Reserve. Platoon drill was carried out  most successfully, showing evidence of  careful training and instruction by  Sergt. D. D. Lloyd, who is in charge.  The section is to be present in force  today at the company drill with the  Kelowna boys. -   O  Westbank News  (fsasa ���r ����� O h**l  'Mrs. Cossar of Glenrosa spent * tew  days in Westbank    last weak vunting  Mr*.

Dear Sir,���As I read the appalling  details oi the awful catastrophe of  war - that daily confronts us in the  press, I \ am reminded of the reply  made by a father'to His boy who asked, "Papa, what ia the difference between a civilized man and a barbar  ianr" The father answered, "A_ barbarian ia a man who knocks your  brains out with a club at arm's  length, while a' civilised man blows  them out * mile away."  An. intelligent, thinking man said1 to  me-a few days ago, "Ak I read many  ol the present day accounts it makes  me wonder ii there is a God." M��ny  are asking, "Does not the terrible con  flict between the great Christian nations prove that Christianity is a failure?"  It it time to emphatic* the fact that  civilization is .not Christianity, nor  doe* the. calling ol a nation Christian  make its people Christian.  Civilization ' does not neecstarily  make a man any better morally.  It is not always the men that know  the most tbat are the best mm.       ,  Greece and Rome were highly civilized but they were not Christian, nor  were .they even moral.  Japan is today highly civilized, and  her educated men take rank among the  world's most advanced scientists, but  she is pagan, not Christian, and' wh'ere  in- she is repudiating the forms and  faith of paganism lhe trend is toward  agnosticism.  Franco, the home ol the Waldenses,  the Albigenits. ani the Huguenots;  France, one ol tne finest, mo��t highly  civilized and cultured states, is today  one oi the most materialistic and un  believing of peoples.  Germany, the homo ol the Reformation, with Protestantism established  by Uw and religion made a part oi  the ourrioulum ol every school���Germany with her h'gh-r -d;cation, her  scientific attainment un I her high rank  in IiterBture and music���is today so  honeycombed with skepticism that her  boasted Christianity is the merest  shell, and hor legalized religion with  out moral power.  And what do we find when we turn  our attention nearer homo?  Rev. Dr. Andrew Gillies, pastor of  the Hennepin uvenuc, Mothodiit church  Minneapolis, Minn., in a sermon  preached to his congregation Sunday  December 14th, 1913 said: "This scientific age has shaken religion to its  very foundation^ Modern soience has  altered our idea of God and th* uni  verso. Higher oritioism haa given us a  new and different Bible.  "Two pathetio results have followed  thia vast movement. The first it that  for twenty years tho religious knowledge oi the Christian people has been  growing beautjfully ten and th* term*  of their faith increasingly vague. More  Bible* are being sold and fewer Bibles  an being read. Instead of its being  a new book to many, it is no book at  all.  "Wo boast'of this as the age when  every man thinks for himself.  "It is an age when few think at all  and when tbe majority oi people called Christians feed their minds on all  kind* of literature excep.t on thai  mighty book whioh is tho core ol lit  arature and of life. -  "Literary tables, are covered with  modern novels while the Book of books  ia dust covered on the shell. Pewa, are  tilled with ohuroh members who do not  know free grac�� from toreordination  and could not toll what they bolieve  though they were beheaded for the  failure.   -  "The other result nf this age of  transition ia that lor twenty yean  the Christian pulpit has had no defi  nite massage. I speak now of the  ministry as a wh0le, and not ol any  man or ohuroh in particular.  "Tho great progress ol sclenos and  philosophy has exalted pure reason.  Ktsays on Social science havo been  given tho name of*termons. 'he good  and be generous,' has been substituted  ior the call to repent.  "I,ct us as ��ano men and women ad-  mlt the truth that much ol our modern Christianity is not tho religion of  Christ but oi men. It is not Christianity but the pretense ol Christianity that has failed."   . '  And Christ never pointed to a time  when the 'tares'���the wioked��� would  all beoome /wheat'r-righteous.  Th* Christian Textbook teaohes  that great peace movements acoompan-  led by groat ware shall be one of th*  distingulBhing characteristics of the  mat days. Is*. 2:3-4; Joel 8:9-18; Thw.  5:3; Rev. 11:18, 16:16.  - Som* one haB told us how wars have  multiplied since the building of the  Peaoa PaUoe.  "When its construction was decided  upon the Anglo-Boer war broke out,  and plans were laid for the Ruaeo  Japanese war. When the first atone  Wat laid, the K0i8er made hi* Ural  voyage to Tangier, which event was  the beginning oi the Moroooo-European  complication*.

For tome  time the militia has been preparing for  less stringent test ol the eyesight  which hat been excluding * great many  men from joining who had wished to  do so.  The test used up to the present was  the same at the oos used ior lhe  South African war and w*s muoh  more severe than ustd n ICngland at  the present time. The new test is  similar to that used in ICngland- in  Toronto there h*ve been 1600 men  turned down in the past three month*  because oi their eyesight when they  applied to job the overseas fore**.  In Ottawa the number ha* been  proportionately as large. With the  new regulation most of these men will  now be able to got into the army.  The official notice statet that it a  recruit can read' D-20 at 'JO foot without glasses ho will be considered fit.  D-20 it a line of print with letters  about half an inch high. Anyone with  'airly good oyosight oan read the teat.  O  .IKSTS KKOM THE KKONT  In an interesting letter from tat  front an Alberta newspaper man *ayt:  "Whan I am not cooking me*l* I am  dodging bullets. One day I waa peeking over the top oi tb* trenob and  Frits sent on* over my head.   .  "Duck," an officer called out."  ".Why," says I, "it it ooming beck!"  "Bonaheadl" rays he.  Continuing he say* one oi hi* tint  task* in the war was to crawl out between the trenches and listen.  One day I came in after a two-hour  listening ordeal and tho major said to  m*: .      . I:  "You seem to be a good listener.  Now tell me what you listen for moftt  "The relief," laid I. '  Austria **iwd Bosnia and Herttgovina.  When the second floor waa finished the  Franco-German . controveny arose,  arose. When the roof was put on, the  Turko-Italinn war began."  And tinoe its completion we have  witnessed the terrible war in the Balkan states, the continuous wars in  Morico, and now the goneral European  war, which eolipees all previous wan  put together.  1, R.

A doubt having been raited as to  the name oi our spiny neighbor, the  caotus Opuntia iragiUs (193), a second  and larger specimen was sent up tor  identtttioation, with the result that this  name was confirmed. Another proles-  sional botanist had pronounced ��� spo-  oimen ol it to be Opuntia borealia,  which is a near allied speoies; but our  own botanist has the advantage ol  continually observing specimens of B,  C. plants, and more over these cacti  are growing in tbe botanical gardens.  A study of the Elders (Salubrious)  of .our distriot it needed, suoh a* Mr.  Eli Wilson intended to have given  them if he had remained in the valley.  Of the two commonest, the late-flowering one, with bloom covering ths  berries, giving these a blue oolor, ia  Sambricus glauoa, apparently without  variation* (89). The early flowering  blaok-barried elder (86), accords with  Professor Britton's description of S.  canadensis. Some botanists plao* it  as S. melancarpa, on account of it*  irregular rounded cyme, and ignore  its white pith and character of growth  It needs to be studied from growing  specimens, so that samples of It were  not sent up. Even our d stinct blue  berried elder has been considered .a  variation from S. canadensis, whioh if  not our black-berried elder must be its  Parent form.  A complete list of our flowers has  not boon in contemplation, but it ia  believed that the promise of including  the more noticeable ones has been fulfilled. Tho absence from the list ol  some spring favorites of the 'mountain  is regretted, such as Nut/tail's Arabia,  a dainty little plant; and Antennaria  anaphaloidea, and Antonnaria micro-  phylla, and the Violas found by Hiss  Ilolman, V. blarids, and V. retrosoa-  bra; also several ol tho milk vetches,  Several ol tho umbelliferous family  have ' also been omitted; also the  Gooseberry family (Ribes). R. vlsoossv  mum, II. divaricatum, and li. lacustro.  Nearly all the plants in the list  were identified and named from specimens sent in to the provincial botanical office. In a few oasos, howover,  the American names were inadvertently given before the British oames were  obtained. The following corrections  should be made:  8.���Dodecatfieon, add variety pauei-  rlorum.  ?.���CorydaKs niiroa.

It is however not clear whether our white or  bluish Western Forget-me-not of early  spring is the same as the bright blue  one of summer which has a musty  odor (84); and that* should be studied  next season. The Blue Bur (Lappula  echinata) it still more robust, and is  also malodorous.  27.���The WBter Speedwell is Veronica  amerioana.  38.���The flower ol the Mountain Lover is bright rose; omit the mention ol  green as an alternative oolor.  92.���Should be Colloraia grandHiora,  and not a Navarretia.  100.���The specific name of the maplf  leaved mallow ia acorifolia.  101.���Our Purple Bargtmot ia Mon-,  arda hstulosa, moUis.

How an enterprising young American  from Indiana; an officer in the British  navy got possession of a floating junk  pile and made it earn him millions of  dollars, is one of the strangest stories  ever written.  He is Capt. I). H. Smith, and the  junk heap is the Convict ship "Suooess," the oldest ship in the world,  which recently ended n month's stay  in Seattle harbor.  He staked his savings on her in a  gamble with chance and a "hunch"  as she lay in the 'I h imrs, at London,  eight years ago. u white elephant on  the hands of her owners.  Ho has converted her into a perpetual gold mine, and now at 42, he is  worrying because he can't let go of  her. '  Let us now temporarily forgot, Capt.  Smith and consider England's penal  system early n I: n neteonth oen-  tury.  Wnen men committed offences then  they were often deported to Australia  in Britain's notorious prison hulks.  There were five of these prison hulks  and Capt. Price was their commander.  He was * veritable fiend; his subordinates were demons, and his ships were  floating hells.  For years this went on, until the  Australian commonwealth arose in protest and abolished the system. Out ol  the fleet of five prison hulks four were  broken up, by the government order,  for the teakwood and copper in theii  hulls. ","'",  By some oversight no order was est  tered against the "Success", the flagship of Capt. Price.   This was in 1868  From then until 1880 she served as a  woman's reformatory, and then tor two  years us an ammunition store ship,  when a syndicate bought her, ^Honored her in Sydney harbor, and stalled  her on her career as an exhibition  ship.  Small boats carried many sightseers from the shore to view her, un-  til the government alarmed that its  past sins should thut be shown, ordered the ship scuttled and sunk.  Sho lay at the bottom of Sydney  harbor five years, and the syndicate  died of financial paralysis. A second  syndicate raised her ���nd took her l%ok  to England, where she was again opened aB an exhibition ship on tbe  Thames.  She waa moored at an obsoure pier  in .London, and London knew nothing  ol her. She was just a little "tu1  penny show." She lay there for years,  a miserable frost, and her Australian  owners, 10,000 miles trom home, were  sick of her, and offered her for   sale.  Here enters Capt. Smith.  Capt. Smith was bom in Indiana, of  English parents. On hi* eighteenth  birthday, at their residenoe, he entered  the British navy and sailed all over  the world. He heard many tune* of  the "Success" *nd took an interest is  her.  He found hor one day as he was exploring through London's streets and  went aboard. He bad heard sho was  for (ale.  Capt. Smith had a little money tav  ed. With part of it he got a thirty  day option on the battered old con  viot ship, and then hastened to the  British museum, where he read up on  the old convict system, taking note*  as ha read. What he found astounded  bim. He had dreauied of no suoh blot  on the pages of Britain's history. H��  pioked up his notes and hurried to  the editorial offices of one of the sixteen leading dailies of London.  The editors sat up and rubbed tbtir  eyes. It was new stuff to them. They  law news in it���all but tho itatoly  "Times", the official organ of the government, "the watchdog of Great Britain."  The Time* suspected u veiled uttaek  on the government anil would have  none ol it.  Capt. Smith frankly unfolded hit  plan to the editors. Ho would open  the "Succew" to the public is they  Would givo him their editorial sup  port.  He had never been in nowepaper work  himself, but he pointed out the a*ws  value of the "Sifcc.ss" and fHtem ol  them promised to liack him.  Then ('apt. Smith dashed down tho  slain to the business offices of these  fifteen d*iliiw and spent all the money  he had left in the lirat day's advertising.  "I figured I'd eithor ios* it qulok  or make it quick," he explained.  He moved tb* ugly vosBol from hor  obsoure berjth to. n pier near the Strand  in the heart of London; ho coUeoted  historical data, and hired trained lee  turn's to conduct the crowds over the  ship.  Also he raised the price of admlltaion  from "tuppence" to a shilling.  Tho shillings began rolling in, and  as fast as they rolled in Capt. Smith  gathered them up and took them to  the business office* of the dailies  whore he bought more advertising.'  Some of the London dailies charged  him 81100 an issus. But he got results.

O   More Peace Rumours  Germans Received Fright  The Luusunne correspondent of the  Times claims to have accurate information from Berlin that the Germans  received a tremendous fright at the end  of September and thut at Brussels all  the papers and belongings of the headquarters staff stood for three days  packed on motor cars ready for in-  stttnd flight, because the staff feared  the offensive would succeed.  As the Germans are still in a state-  of alarm, they propose in January to  make a desperate attack of their own  on the western front and tn this end  the Krupps are working feverishly to  prepare the necessary big guns and  material.  "Supposing tills n '���'''��� fails," tho  correspondent continues, "they havo  another card to play. The Pope nnd  President Wilson will be invited by  Germany to initiate proceedings for  the proclamation (Jf peace. This is  the explanation of lVnce von Buelow's  visit to Rome."
