OCTOBER 31, 1918.���4 PACES  ~  ane  SI.50 Per Annum  Regular Meeting  of City Council  Health Committee Watching  Against "Flu" Outbreak  A meeting of the city council  was held Monday, the Mayor and  aldermen Mantle, Duggan, Knowles, Lloyd-Jones and Rattenbury  being present.  His Worship informed the council that he had requested the city  solicitors to ascertain particulars of  the recent order-in-council passed  for the prevention of the spread of  Spanish influenza. The city solicitors wiled for these particulars  submitting same in typewritten  form, which were read and ordered to be filed for future reference.  A letter was read from Mr. L. A.  Hayman suggesting lhat a tent be  placed on the wharf for disinfect-  ing incoming passengers in order  to prevent introducing the-influenza from other towns. It Waa decided to hand the suggestion to the  emergency committee which the  Mayor stated had been formed to  look after all matters respecting  the control of Spanish influenza.  The committee consisted of the  following gentlemen: Mayor Sutherland and Aid. W. Lloyd-Jon*a  representing the Health committee  of the city, and Messrs. D. Leckie  P. DuMoulin and P. B. Willits representing the Kelowna Hospital  Society  A lettei from the South Kootenay Power Co. in reply to an  inquiry made by the council as to  the prospects^ for bringing their  power line which was crossing the  southern end of the valley up to  Kelowna. The letter stated that it  was not yet decided whether there  was sufficient buaineas up the valley to warrant an extension but a  report was being prepared and the  result would be known shortly.  Applications from Mrs. Margaret  E. Barber and W. B. M. Calder to  purchase tax sale lots were accepted.  A letter was received from Mra.  Windsor advising that she was  now the owner of the building  used by the City for Police purposes and asking under what  terms the city would continue  renting this building. A resolution  was passed "That the city pay  Mrs. Windsor the rental of Twenty  five dollars per-month fot a period  ending December 31, 1919."  Messrs. Burne and Wilson waited on the council on behalf of (he  Kelowna Aquatic Assn. requesting  a grant, to the Association.    Mr.  (CiaiseajrH aa Fat* 4.)   1 ������O   .���        '     -  Visit from Tasmanian  Fruit Men  Visitors in Kelowna this week  were Mr. J. M. Ward chief of the  government fruit division of Tasmania, and Mr. S. J. Kellaway, a  prominent fruit grower of the same  place. They are making a tour of  the principal fruit sections of Canada and the States, gathering information for use in the furthering  of their own fruit industry. Tasmania ia an islnnd largely devoted  to horticulture, and of late years  has built up, a considerable business  in apple growing. They have shown  the keenest interest in the Kelowna  district, and have made many visits  to the orchards and packing establishments.  In conversation, Mr. Ward expressed his pleasure in seeing the  district free from Codlin moth.  People here had no idea of the  ravages of this terrible pest in many  apple districts, and fie congratulated the growera here on the vigorous measures taken to keep it from  gaining a hold. Conditions in  Tasmania were somewhat different  from the Okanagan, but they had  their own troubles to contend with.  Fire blight, of which he had noticed much here, was, he was happy  to say, unknown there. The conn  Uy was well suited for the growing  of fruit, and each year improvements were made in methods of  production snd marketing.  The party which included Mrs.  Kellaway and Mr. M.'S. Middleton,  British Columbia horticulturist, left  Tuesday by ferry for Summerland,  where they will attend the fruit  . fair which ia being held there this  week. ���  Victory Loan Campaign  isjnJFuII Swing  Three Weelfs to. Raise Quota  of $200.000  The Victory Loan Campaign  started Monday morning, and  though no special sensation was  arranged to signalize the event, ths  canvassers are already beginning to  warm to their work. Kelowna has  just three weeks in which to raise  the allotted $200,000, and win the  Honor Flag." which goes to those  districts which attain their quota.  No very satisfactory figure can  yet be given as to what the local  subscriptions have reached in the  first three days, as only a very few  returns have come in. There seems  to be a tendency on the part of  some canvassers to hold back their  results for a time so as to have a  large amount to turn in at once.  From experience this has been  found to be a mistake, as every  thousand added tends to encourage  others, and this influence is lost  where amounts are held back.  Early subscription is what counts,  and especially should those who  are contemplating entering large  sums come foward at once, or at  any rate notify the secretary or  other canvasser.  . The local canvassers are the  Okanagan Loan Co, Messrs. Mantle  & Wilson, Harvey & Duggan, G.  A. Fisher, E. Murdock, C. H. Jackson, D, H. Rattenbury, N. D. Mc-  Tavish, D. Lloyd-Jones, K. Iwashita  and the secretary L. V. Rogers at  the headquarters office in the old  Trench atore. This office is open  all dav from 9 a.m. to 9 p.rn., at  least while the schools remain  closed and Mi. Rogers is at liberty.  Mr. J. B. Knowles has charge of  Continued oa pen tow.  O  Prevent Outbreak ol  Influenza So Far  Up to the present Kelowna has  been wonderfully favored in the  matter of escaping the prevailing  "flu" epidemic. The Health committee reports that although during  the week several suspicious esses  have been investigated no new  cases have been discovered, and  those who were considered last  week as having a form of influenza  are reported to be much improved.  The principle followed has been  to take no chances but to at once  quarantine any case which looked  like influenza, 'Spanish or otherwise, in this way the disease has  had no chance to gain a footing.  This has given birth to several  rumors of outbreaks during the  week but in every case it has proved to be nothing but a severe  cold or mild "grip."  A number of Indians who were  camped on the reserve near Ca-  sorso's weie under suspicion for  some davs and were taken over  the lake to their homes. Chinatown has also been under observation and is, in fact, vet.  Reports from other places would  seem to indicate that the epidemic  is on the wane, and if things continue so favorably it ia likely that  some of the restrictions, particularly that relating to the school closing  may be removed at the end of  another week.  Funeral of Pte. Neil  McMillan  The remains of the late Pte. Neil  Angus McMillan, aon of Mr. and  Mrs. Dan McMillan, and whose  death in Toronto was announced  in last week's issue, arrived on  Monday's boat, the funeral taking  .place yesterday at. the Kelowna  cemetery. There was a large attendance at the service which was  held at the residence on Richter  street at 2 p.m. Members of the  local Great War Veteran's Associ-  acted as pawl-bearers, and attend  ed their deceased comrade to his  last resting place. The ceremony,  which was conducted by the Rev.  D. E. Braden, was an impressive  one, and many were the expressions of sympathy with the bereaved parents, who have given  three of their sons in the great  cause. The "Last Post" was  sounded by Pte. Fred Gore, him  self a returned soldier, aa the  mourners turned away from the  grave side to return to town.  Passengers and Crew  Lost in CP.R. Wreck  Sinking of Princess Sophia is  Worst Shipping Disaster on  Pacific Coast  l0��.ih  A disaster unparalleled in the  history of Pacific' coast shipping,  happened last Saturday morning  when the C P.R. steamer 'Princess  Sophia foundered in the Lynn Canal on her return from Alaska.  Every soul on board, including 275  passengers and 68 of a crew, were  drowned in spite of frantic efforts  made by other boats to reach them.  The Sophia ran on Vanderbilt  Reef on Thursday morning, and  reports were that she was" in no  danger, and that relief vessels  were standing by. It. was therefore almost unbelievable when it  announced that she had been lost  with all aboard.  The Sophia, one of the finest of  the C.P.R. vessels on the northern  run, had left Skagway on Wednesday night on her usual schedule.  She got off her course in a blizzard  winter weather having set in rather;  earlier than usual. Running on  Vanderbilt Reef, the vessel .vent  high up on the ledge, more than  two-thirds of her length being over  the edge, while the jagged rocks  tore a gaping hole in her bol'om.  An attempt waa made to back  her off at the next full tide, but  this failed, and Capt. Locke, master  of the Sophia, sent a radio message  which indicated that the vessel  was safely wedged on the rocks.  He reported, however, that a fresh  breeze had sprung up. Later this  developed into a howling northern:  gale, which hurled waves thirty  feet . high, and rendered it absolutely impossible for any of the  vessels standing by to render aid;  The U.S. steamer Cedar, fighting  fiercely into the teeth of the hurri,  cane, got within four hundred  yards of the doomed vessel, and  dropped anchors, but the anchors  would not hold her. There were  other vessels near the scene, the  U.S. steamer Peterson, the King  and winge, a gasolene boat, and  several fishing vessels,, but none  could approach within rescue distance of the reef.  Late on Friday night, the Sophia's  wireless sent out a message that she  was sinking, and the Cedar made  a final superhuman attempt to reach  her, and did get to the scene again,  but the Sophia was gone. Only her  foremast showed above the waste  of waters when dawn broke  Bodies of the victims are being  found on the rocky coasts, but so  far not a single survivor of the disaster has been found. As is usual  at this season of the year, many  people are leaving Alaska and the  Youkon for the winter, and. the  Sophia was carrying a heavy pas-  senger list. It is also reported that  she had a million dollars in gold  aboard - Among the passengers  were a number of well-known  northern men.  Captain Locke, who was in command of the Sophia, was one of  the oldest and moat experienced  navigators on the northern coast.  He had been in command of the  Princess Sophia for over two years.  The Princess Sophia was built at  Paisley, Scotland, in 1912, and is a  vessel of 2320 tons register. She  is 245 feet long and 44 feet beam.  The Mainland Seed Fair is to be  held in Kelowna, Dec. 4th and 5th.  For some weeks past a keen competition has been going on amongst  e provincial towns in the interior  for the securing of this important  fair, only one of which is held by  by the government on the mainland  every year. The condition imposed was that the district securing the.  most entries to the fair should be  the one in which it "was held.  Grand Forks, Kamloops, and all  Okanagan cities have tried hard to  secure it, and tor some time the  decision haa been in doubt. A few  davs ago, however, Kamloops, the  second largest scorer, dropped out  of the running, leaving Kelowna  first in the field. No fewer than  284   separate   entries have been  Two boys playing with an air-  gun last week came perilously  near doing serious injury to a  young child who was standing  near by. As it was the shot struck  him on the cheek, in dangerous  proximity to his eye. The risks  .un in allowing young boys to play  with such dangerous things have  often been pointed out. An air  gun is classed in the eyes of the  law as a firearm, and it is illegal  for any boy under sixteen to carry  one. Mo.eover it was a breach of  the city by-law to discharge it in  the city,at all. Upon information  laid the boys were brought before  the magistrate and each fined $5  for the offence.  Lieut. Atkinson left Monday for  the coast.  Pte. D. G. McCurdy, a nephew  of Mr, Geo. McCurdy ot Kelowna  has beep reported killed.  Mainland Seed Fair  I   Will Bejeld Here  Kelowna Leads Other Cities  i      in Number of Entries  secured in this district, thanks to  the enterprise and energy of Mr.  R. L. Dalglish, secretary of the  Farmers' Institute.  The fair is of high educational  value to all farmers and horticulturists, and can not fail to provide a  stimulus to an industry which will  undoubtedly increase ateadily in  the next few years.  Now that the location of the fair  has been definitely settled, tentative programmes and hill information will be shortly issued, and all  arrangements made. Over $1000  is being offered in prizes, a fact  which in itself should induce keen  competition. Entries ran still be  made, and Mr. Dalglish will a-e  that they are forwarded to the proper quarter.  We are glad to be able to announce that Dr. Telford has so far  recovered from the breakdown in  health which gave some anxiety to  his friends last week, that he will  be able to attend at his office at  the beginning of next week.  Buy Victory Bonds by  Instalments  Through the co-operation of tbe  Canadian Bankers' Association, a  plan has been worked out whereby Victory Bonds may be purchased by paying 10 per cent, on application and the balance in monthly  instalments extending over ten  months. A simple card system has  been adopted by which these  payments can be most easily re-  g rded.  The marriage took place at Vancouver on thn 19th of thia month  of Mr. Harold Johnston of Kelowna  and Miss Kate Humphreys, lately  of the Lakeview Hotel. Mr. and  Mra. Johnston returned yesterday  to town and are taking up their  residence in Glenn Avenue.  BIRTH  WOODD-On Thursday, October  3rd, to the wife of A. B. Woodd,  East Kelowna, a son.

A somewhat startling Dominion  order-in-cnuncil hns just been madi  public, which is aimed at the. high  cost of living. The order is reallj  an amendment of two previniu  enactments, but it introduces some  new principles recommended by  the Department of Labor whicl  are bound to have a very far reach  ing effect. The most important o!  these is the power given lo al'  municipalities to appoint what ip  known as a "Fair Price Committre.'  The duty of ihis body, which har  large powers of investigation givet  to it, is to test the prices beini,  charged by retailers for various  commodities and ascertain wheji  more than reasonable prices arr  being charged.  "Consumers of Canada,"' sat s ,  circular issued by lhe Food Board,  have now an opportunity of ascer  taining whether the prices ther  pay for foodstuffs are leasonablr  and fair or possible extortions bt  alleged profiteers. All tliey havi  to do in each municipality of Canada is to ask their municipal coin -  cil to appoint a Fair Price Com  mittee to investigate the pricer  asked by retailers and to draw  conclusions as to whether iheer  prices are fair and reasonable  These Fair Price Committees will  then publish their findings in tht  forms of lists.  In this way the consumers will  make sure whether ihey are paying  prices which are unreasonable ami  unfair or not. It may be that the  prices which the Committee considers lo be fair and reasonable  will not be any lower than the pre-  init prices charged by retailers,  in some cases they may be higher.  But that need not bother lhe consumer so long as he is satisfied  through lhe investigation of the  impartial Fair Price Committee  within his own municipality lhat  the prices published indicate a fair  and reasonable standard to guide  both consumer and retailer, having  in mind war conditions and lhe  unsettling of pre-war prices."  The order covers not only all  necessaries of life, but rents and  leases, which must not be at a higher rate than is reasonable and just.  All books and records of any business must be open to the inspection  of th s "Fair Price Committee," who  are te report their findings to thr  Minister, and a'so to publish in lhe  press the price which they consider is a fair one for any particular  commodity in their own district,  having regard to neceseiry freight,  over head expenses, and handling  costs and profit.  Penalties for violation of  the regulations  may   be   punishable by  fines as high as $5,000 or imprisonment for a term of two years.   O   Austria, in her reply to President  Wilson, accepts all the views expressed by the President in his  note of October 18th. Austria  Says she is willing, and ready, with  out waiting the result of other  negotiations, to negotiate a peace  end an immediate armistice on all  Austro-Hungarian fronts.

Mapp, Salvation Army commissioner, who has  just ri turned from Russia. Mr.  Mapp declaredhe learned in Russia  that the Czarina maintained a private wire in her apartments at the  Winter Palace in Petrograd over  which she transmitted to the German Government all information  in regard to thi" military plans of  the Allies, which was received by  Russia as an ally.

Some  one has won tbe prize and vt is not  fair that he should be kept out of  the same just because the others  have failed to hand in theirs. If  any of the following have lost what  they have already written, they will  rave to write the best account they  can of the camp from their present  memories. Failure to hand them  in by the 15th of November at the  lateBt will now be treated, as a  breach of the 7th Scout Law and  dealt with accordingly: Seconds  Ralph Weddell and Leonard  G��d3e8, and Scouts Rowcliffe, T.

Godfrey GroveB had been  tak^u down with the "Flu" on his  way to Toronto, and that he is now  in the General Hospital in that  City. A former member of the  rroop in lhe person of Scout Clifford  Ferguson is also a sufferer in the  Military Hospital at Vernon. We  wish a speedy and safe recovery  to both ol them So far all the  active members of the troop have  been immune, and we here touch  wood.

October 22nd, 1918. 49-50  Demand Abdication of  the Kaiser  Enormous crowds, gathered before the Reichstag building in Berlin  demanded abdication of lhe Kaiser  and the establishment of a republic,  according to I'lnformation. The  crowds had collected to pay tribute  to Karl Liebknecht, Socialist leader  recently released after a- long imprisonment for political opposition  to the German Government, according to despatches received by  the newspaper from Zurich. After  frenziedly acclaiming Liebknecht,  the people hoisted him into a  vehicle filled with flowers. Amidst  wild cheers, Liebknecht declared  "the people's hbur has arrived."

BIGGER  BUILDER AND CONTRACTOR  Estimates Furnished for al) cla  of work  Germany's aimies have begun a  new retreat, this time between the  Oise and theAisne. Gen. Debeney's  first armv, in the face of stubborn  resistance and repeated counter  attacks, has succeeded in swinging  on its right flank so that it faces  east. It has reached Guise and the  Guise-Marie road, driving the  enemy before it. General Debeney  is now in a position to push rapidly along the upper Oise Valley toward Hirson and Vervine through  a level country devoid of streams.  The first of his progress is to force  the enemy opposing the tenth and  fifth French armies, exhausted by  fruitless counter attacks, to begin  a backward movement which is  eventually bound to extend to the  front before Rethe. This will open  to the fourth army a double passage  of the Aisne and Ardennes Canal.  CORPORATION OF THE.

The first party of 1,000 British  prisoners taken by the Bulgarians  and liberated under the peace  agreement between that country  and the Allies passed through Sofia  en route for Saloniki, according to  a despatch from the Bulgarian  capital. They reported that because of ill-treatment at the hands  of the Bulgarians, 30.000 of the  50,000 Serbians in Bulgarian prison  camps have died.  Replying in the House of Commons to David Davies, Lord  Robert Cecil stated that the government was trying to reach an  agreement with its allies and the  United .States which would enable  a detailed scheme for a league of  nations to be drafted.

Oversea Drafts to Continue  The department of militia and  defence gives an absolute and  unqualified denial to the rumor  that because of the possibility of  peace there will be a suspension  of the sending of reinforcements  overseas at present. Surprise was  expressed in official circles that  anyone could believe that Canada's  war efforts would be slackened in  the slightest* degree because of  peace talk.

Prior to his departure Mr. Gulseth  was unfortunate enough to be in a  bad auto, accident, when a car  ran over the bank into Long lake,  whilst travelling from Vernon.    <  The casualty lists of yesterday  contains the <name of G. A. McCormick of Kelowna amongst' the  wounded.  Mr. Nick Avender and a party  of four who were motoring down  from Vernon Sunday, had a narrow escape from serious injury  when thetr car rolled over the  embankment into Long Lake. The  rain had made the roads very difficult to negotiate, and in turning  out to pass'another car going in  the opposite direction, they approached too near the edge. The  car toppled over fortunately throwing the occupants clear, and continued in a series of somersaults to  the edge of the water. Although  badly shaken and bruised, the  occupants were not seriously hurt,  and were able to come down to  Kelowna in a passing car soon  after. Their own car was badly  wracked.  Mias K. M.

Result of Fanners' Institute Competitions  We publish below the results of  the Farmers' Institute competitions  in tomatoes, onions, con. and beans.  Prizes of $10. $8, $6, $4 and $2 are  awarded in each competition. Mr.  Ben Hoy who judged all of theae  cropa auppliea the following notes:  The beans, tomatoea and corn were  judged on the alandard of a normal  seaaon, and beana were a hard  competition to judge on account of  the uneveness of the plots, nearly  all the crops were too immature for  the time of year when the judging  took place.  There were some very heavy  yielding plots in tomatoes but in a  normal season many would not  have ripened, thia was partly due  to the apring froat damage and  partly due to want of aelection of  aeed. Nearly all the plota fell down  on poor seed selection, in many  cases over 25 per cent, ofthe planta  being roguea. Greater attention  should be given to selection of seed  to save this great loss in this important ciop, and to obtain earliness  of maturity and uniformity of yield.  Tomato growers should also note  that to obtain the best and cheapest cultivation the land should be  marked out and plants put out on  the square, sn that they can be  cultivated both ways, Corn was a  good close competition, with heavy  yields of (odder. Though aeveral  of the winners had excellent grain  yields, some of the competitors  whilst having tine fodder had  practically no yield of grain, which  to-day, with concentrates so expensive, is by far the most valuable  part of this crop. All the competitors but one grew lhe Norrh West  Dent.  TOMATOES. Leslie Dilworth, 94  points, L. E. Taylor, 93, J. Spall, 92, W.  D. Walker, 91, D.Crawford or Sons, 90,  Bankbead and S.

"Youra for Victory Loan 1918,"  is the Canadian letter writer's  slogan in the Victory Loan campaign. Every one is asked to  sign his or her letters in this way.  Already some are doing it, and  before the campaign ia far under  way it ia hoped the practice will  be general. It ia an easy and yet  most effective way of driving  home the appeal for the Loan,  and it will reach practically every  one. Business men particularly  are requested to adopt the idea.  Aa they read their incoming and  outgoing letters, during the next  five weeka, they will confront  "Youra for Victory Loan 1918"  scores of times each day. Start  now signing your letters in this  way. Get into the swing I Every  little bit is needed if Canada is  to "go over the top."  New Bulletin on Tomato  Diseases  Few people have ever stopped  to conaider the number of diaeaaes  to which the tomato plant ia sub  ject. A bulletin recently iasued  by the Division of Botany of the  Experimental Farms enumerates  forty-four of these diaeaaea, and  poasibly there may be more. Many  complainta to which the potato,  tobacco plant and egg plant are  subject, are alao common to the  tomato, the five planta all being  members of the Nightshade family.  Mr. McCubbin, assistant in charge  of the Plant Pathological Laboratory at St. Catharines, Ont., is the  author of the bulletin which can  be had free upon application to  the Publication's Branch, Dept. of  Agriculture, Ottawa. It conaiata of  sixteen pages with three- full-page  platea snowing aome of the diaeaaea at the various atagea. Ther  should be wide demand for th  bulletin, which indeed no grower  of the tomato should overlook.  y&mt&mokXK*^^  End AU Your ==   Hauling Troubles  By buying a strong, reliable wagon such as is found in an  Adams or Webber Wagon  Also Grey Campbell Carriages  Heavy and Light Harness  Whips     Sweat Pads      Robes      Horse Blankets  And a select line of  Automobile Rugs and Wraps  W.

Victory Loan Campaign in Full Swing  Continued fcrwm t)r\m oes.  the publicity work and is rapidly  getting his forces to work to boost  the Loan and raise local enthusiasm  Many of the usual means of publicity are shut off on account of the  "Flu" but other ways are being  devised. The "Victory Girls" crusade is one of these, some 200  local maidens ha\ing joined in the  movement. They will wear a  heart-shaped badge with the motto  "Our hearts are in the war," and  will do all they can to encourage  the buying of bonds, giving any  information needed.  Of course there will be a big  "clock" showing the progress of  the campaign from day to day.  This will be in the window of the  headquarters office. Vernon has  the same quota allotted as Kelowna. viz., $200,000, and there should  be an interesting race between the  two ct  ilies.  1 !<tre are ihe Victory Loan quotas for ih; units ot district No. 9,  the Okanagan and the Similkameen  Hedley $ 30,000  Princeton     50.000  Allenby    20.000  Keremeos    15,000  Penticton  100,00;)  Naramata       5,000  Summerland.....   60,000  Peachland     15,000  Kelowna  200,000  Vernon  200,000  Armstrong     80,000  Enderby    35.000  ���    Mara     10.000  Sicamous      7,500  This gives a total of $847,500.  The objective for Diatrict Number  Nine is one million dollars, so that  each unit is expected to go considerably beyond its quota. Each  unit raising its quota will, however,  obtain a Victory Loan flag.
