 fUfototia  VOL. IV.   NO. 7.  KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY,  JAN. II, 1911\  $1.50 Per Annum.  Telephone System  Changes Hands  Okan. Telephone Co. Acquires  Local System  A business deal of the utmost  importance to Kelowna has been  cloned this week in the sale by Mr.  H. H. Millie of the local telephone  system to the Okanagan Telephone  Co. The price is not given, but it  is probably in the neighborhood of  $46,000.  The system, now of considerable  extent, which thus passes out of  Mr. Millie's control, has been built  up entirely bv him from very small  beginnings. Seven years ago,  when Kelowna was a very small  place indeed, Mr. Millie came from  Carmen, Man., and applied to the  city for a charter to install   a   tele-  fihone system. His unbounded be-  ief in the future of the city, a belief which is no less evident to-day,  has been amply justified by the  remarkable success which has attended the venture.  The Okanagan Telephone Co.,  the new owners of the system, aim  at consolidating the different systems of the valley into one concern  and the purchase of the Kelowna  system completes the last link in  the chain. The company were the  original promoters of the Vernon,  Armstrong, Enderby and Salmon  Arm systems, and in addition have  lately acquired from the Lake Shore  Telephone Co., the systems at  Summerland, Penticton, Peachland  and Kaleden. They will take over  the Kelowna system at the beginning of next month.  Mr. Millie has avowed his attention of remaining in Kelowna and  investing in real estate here.  Many suggestions have been  made during the last year or two  that the city assume the ownership  and operation of its telephone system, The success which has attended other essays at municipal  ownership, to wit, the water and  light plant, has been used as an  argument in favor of this undertaking. When the matter was  brought to a head a few months  ago by negociations of the Okanagan Telephone Co., the agitation  for purchase by the city was renewed. There seemed to be a  strong feeling in favor of the purchase, and upon the matter being  discussed by the Board of Trade  it was unanimously decided to appoint a committee to confer with  Mr. Millie. With the best of intentions, however, there was one  obstacle which was overlooked at  the time. The borrowing of the  large sum necessary to purchase  the system would bring the  city dangerously near the limit of  its borrowing power. This, in view  of other more pressing needs, was  regarded as unwise, and the matter had to be dropped, although  somewhat reluctantly.  Advertising Kelowna  in the Old Country  The advertising of Kelowna in  the Old Country is receiving attention just now from the Central  Okanagan Land Co., who are  arranging an extensive lecture tour  of all the principal cities and towns.  Mr. H. H. MacLeay is to have  charge of the campaign, and a first  class lecturer ia to be engaged.  The lectures will be illustrated with  lantern views of fruit growing  scenes and beauty spots of Kelowna and district. This department  will be under the care of Mr. G.  H. E. Hudson who leaves to-morrow, equipped with a large collection of lantern slides, photogtaphs,  and panoramic views. Mr. Hudson  will be away some months and will  pay a visit to his old home at Scarborough, Yorks.  The annual meeting of the Kelowna Conservative Association is  called for Thursday evening, Jr���"!-  ary 18th at 8 p.m. As impor  business is to be transacted a ,uoa  attendance ia earnestly asked for.  If you do not see the biggest  values for the least money, we will  take down the signs and call off  the sale.���Kelowna Hardware Co.  Annual Meeting of Council  and Ratepayers  r   Retiring Council Give Account of Their Years' Work - Large  Number of Candidates for Election  The annual ratepayers' meeting  at which the retiring council are  expected to render an account of  their work for the past year, and  the candidates for control of the  city's business for the ensuing year I a sewage system, he did not he  are put through their paces, as it: lieve the city had sufficient infoi-  were, and given an opportunity to I mat.on.

Mr.  R. B. Kerr was elected to preside.  Aid. Leckie as the only member  of the old council who was retiring from the field was called upon  to speak first. He briefly reviewed th�� -jilairs of the city's electric  light and water plant, of which department he had had charge for  past two years. When he entered  the council he had suggested the  purchase of a cheap pipe, and the  extension of the water system to  all parts of the city, believing that  it could be made a paying investment. He presented figures which  showed that results had justified  his expectations, and not only the  waterworks but the electric light  plant were on a paying basis. The  former deficit had been wiped out,  and the profits realized for the  past two years over running expenses had been sufficient to pny  interest and sinking fund on the  debentures, and to leave a substantial surplus. Although he was  retiring from the council he would  still take a great interest in its  affairs, and would be ready at all  times to render assistance.  Aid. J. W. Jones as candidate  for the mayoralty then addressed  the meeting. Aa a believer in  woman suffrage in municipal matters, he was glad to see the great  interest being taken by the ladies  in the present election. He regretted the retirement from the council  of Aid. Leckie, who had proved  his value to the city by the way in  which he had handled the electric  light and water department. He  referred also to the valuable work  done by Aid. Cox, who was now  absent in the Old Country. He  gave a brief resume of the city's  favorable financial position as revealed in the statement, copies of  which had been handed around at  the beginning of the meeting. The  estimate of assets had been calculated on a very conservative basis,  as they had no desire to water the  stock of the city, but to present  facts.  The past year had seen considerable development, in real estate,  and values had gone up. 1912  promised to be a banner year, and  it was important that the interests  of the city should be well looked  after.  In suggesting a possible programme for the year, he advocated  the carrying out of permanent work  on Bernard Avenue fron Ellis St.  to the wharf. Engineers should be  employed to take levels and prices  obtained on the best materials for  the laying of a permanent roadway  which would be a chedit to the  town. A ���trong effort too should be made  to justify the title of " Orchard City " by  beautifying the street! with shade trees.  He referred to the probability or development on the opposite aide of the lake,  and said that an endearor should be made  to secure the trade there by developing  the present ferry system.'  He went at some length into the importance of going still further into the sewerage question, on which much useful  information had already been gathered.  The interests of Kelowna should be well  looked after in view of the certainty of  railway development in the next twelve  months. Other towns had been getting  the advantage of us, largely owing to the  apathy of Kelowna people. It was time  that vigorous united action be taken.  He paid a tribute in closing to Mayor  Sutherland. Not many men or his ability,  he said, would have been content to step  down from the Mayor's chair to take'the  position of Alderman. It showed the  great interest he had in the city's welfare.  Mr. E. R. Bailey, the other aspirant for the mayoralty next spoke.  He had consented to run for mayor  one   upon  Aid. CopeUiul reported on the work of  the   Parks   committee, and   defended   the  Hunid of Woiki, whose wurk on die roads  liM'l been severely criticized.   Both he and  ��-* Aid.

The difficulty had been the small  amount of money which had to be sprr-ad  over a grual mileage of streets in the city,  lie favored the borrowing of money on debentures to put the atiefits into proper  shape.

Such a man   would  erUnd and on   the   understanding ��ave his salary many times over,  that Aid. Jones would not   oppose   . Speaking of the fire department, he said  . . *     *    .       . . ,.       .j   V    .    tnn Cl|y i,aJ tne "eat fire   brigade  n.   any  him.    In stating his policy, it elect- titv iu |j26| and ev��ryono knew how well  ed, he said that in the question   of J the boys did their work.   Too much praise  could not be given to Mr. Buckland for the  way in which lie hud worked for the brig.  ade and kept ihe boya together,  Aid. Dnlttleitih confined lust remarks to  the Board ol Works of which he had bee.,  chairman* I'hoy had honestly tried to  work for the intereita of the ratepayers,  and to give them full value lor every dob  lar. The work had been done at a considerable iaving on previous years, and it  should be the policy in future to follow up  with work of h mure permanent nature.  Mr. k A. Payior spoke briefly as candidate for ttie BOUth ward, and wai followed  l.y Mr. H. H. Millie, who advocated tiling  the i the pruhts from the li^lit and water depart'  ments to reducing the clmigcfc to the consumers.  ���Mr. F. R. E. DeHart and Mr. S. T. Elliott  we.e also catted upon to speak.  Mayor Sutherland thanked the previous  , speakers for the ninny kind things which  bad been said about him. He was iu  reality, he said, a selfish man, and in serving the city had served liimsell by keeping  down the tuxes, lie delivered a most entertaining address on the work of the  council during the past year which, unfortunately from lack of lime and space  we are obliged to curtail, in spite of the  increasing demands made upon the council in all departments they had been able  lo carry on the work without imposing  any additional burdens upon the rate-  payers. Two years ago the assessment  had been raised but the rule had been  lowered, su that the taxes amounted to  . | practically   the   same.       I he   expenditure  was   better trans- j on streets   and   sidewalks   this   year   had  total for the  i done without adding anything to the taxes.  'f he operating expenses of the light and  waler department hnd increased in two  yeuis h-ss than 10 per cent., while tin;  revenue had increased JOlJ pei cent.  Referring to the suggestion that the city  should have purchased the telephone  system, the mayor pointed out that however much they might have wished it, the  borrowing Ol such a sum would be unwise at the present time, as it would leave  too small a margin on the city's borrowing  power. Even if they could have bought  the syhtcm they hat.) no power to operate  it without going before parliament for  special legislation.  He intended, if in the council for  another year, to confine himself chiefly to  a general supervision of the city's finances.  Mr. W. C. Blackwood appealed for  support as candidate for the north ward,  and Aid. Leckie spoke on behalf of Mr.  A. O. Brunette, who had been called out  of town dining the day.  Mr. Thos. Lawson, as chairman of the  school trustees, had considerable matter of  importance to impart connected with  school work, but owing to the lateness of  the hour was obliged to cut hii remarks  short. He said the increase in expenditure on schools was nothing to what would  have to be met in the future if the increase in numbers of scholars went on as  rapidly as it had done. Five years ago  there were three teachers and no High  School, Now there were seven teachers  iu the Public School and two in the High  School.    It was only   a   matter of anothei  year at the present rate before another  school would be needed, so that the people of Kelowna could see what they were  up against in the matter of education.  The inspector's reports had been very  favorable, he having declared Kelowna to  have one of the best schools in the  Province.  Distribution of Seed  Grain and Potatoes  wliich had been d  streets during the past year. A  great deal of money had been  spent for which the city had not  got anything like full value. He  was opposed to the permanent  work on Bernard Avenue suggested by Aid. Jones, as if done at the  present time, it would, in all probability have to be torn up again to  lay sewers. A good many dollars  too had been spent in opening up  new streets, which should have  been spent in improving those already opened up.  Discussing the probability of  railway development in the near  future, he said one of the greatest |  needs of the city  portation faciiitties, and the rail-1 amounted to moo; ilmn tli<  roads could not come in too l"sl fiv" >''"��� '" ���' l,ad "���"  quickly. But the railways were  bound to come anyway, and Aid.  Jones could not keep them out if  he tried to. 1 hey would have certain propositions to make and require certain concessions, and lie  did think the whole responsibility  of dealing with them Should be  left with the council. 1 he propel  plan would be to call a public  meeting, and give the people a  chance to say what they wanted.  It would then be up to the council  to give expression to their wishes.  In appealing for support at the  election, he said that all his interests were bound up in Kelowna.  He had seen the town grow from  half a dozen houses to its present  size, and the happiest days of his  life had been associated wilh it.  If elected it would be his honest  endeavour to work for the city to  the  utmost   of   his  power.  The loud applause which followed his speech showed the high  estimation in which Mr. Bailey was  held by the citizens.  A letter was read from Mr. H. W. Ray.  mer, candidate for the soutli ward, regiet-  ting his inability to be present owing to  illness.  Kelowna Brewery  Burnt Out  In the small hours of Sunday  morning the Kelowna Brewery Go's  premises which were situated on  the lake shore opposite the city  were clislroyed by fire. There  were few witnesses of the catastrophe, and hardly anyone in town  knew of it until the following day.  The oiigin of the blaze can only  be surmised, as there was no one  in the building at the time. An  oil lamp had been left burning as  a protection against frost, and it is  possible that thisr.u>v have exploded or been upset by the rate. The  building and plant which represented an investment of seven or  eight thousand dollars, was a total  loss. Some $3,800 only is covered  by insurance.  The brewery was owned by a  local company, and has been in  existence some two years.  From  the  Dominion  mental Farms  v xpen-  Rutland News.  From our own curresponnVnt.  The Literary Society met Friday  last when Mr. J. W. Jones gave u  very interesting talk on Abraham  Lincoln, which was highly appreciated and enjoyed by the large  number present.

Gray,  i his land extends from the foot of  the bench up to the Cential Okanagan Lauds' main flume, and consists of about 57 acres. John evidently wants more room to grow ?  The packing school is being held  at S. Sproule's house under the tuition of Mr. Gibb. Ten scholars of  nil ages are busily learning one of  the arts which go to make Kelowna  exhibits world renowned.  Items from Ellison  :apondent.)

Guest  were appointed to confer with  representatives from Rutland and  Glenmore, with a view of ascertaining the feasibility of forming a  water municipality.

C  PHONE 19  A Poultry Association for  Kelowna  The question o[ the formation o(  a Poultry Association for Kelowna  which was broached by  a  correspondent in our columns last week,  has aroused some little interest   in  this very important, but somewhat  neglected matter, and   it   is   prob  able now that steps will   be   taken  to place this district   in  line  with  others in the valley by   the   inaug  uration of a society for  the  assist  ance and encouragement of breeding and marketing of poultry.  It seems to be generally accepted  that for the outlay necessary for  equipment and stock, there are  very few lines of agricultural activity to compare with poultry keeping for profit. It is an industry too  which responds very readily lo  careful management and scientific  methods. The big difference in  egg production for instance, which  results from persistent selection of  the best layers and the building up  of a vigorous strain, compared with  what can be got from the usual  heterogenious back door flock is  often surprising.  It is a matter of regret that here,  in Kelowna, where the advantages  in favor of poultry raising are so  many, that so little should be done  to put things on a higher level. A  ive association would achieve this,  and it is to be hoped that, as our  correspondent says, the matter will  not lag for lack of enthusiasm.  Mr. J. C. Stockwell, who, in the  past has taken great interest in  poultry associations, has, in order  to make a practical move in the  matter, called a meeting of those  interested to be held in Messrs.  Rattenbury and Williams' office on  Tuesday next, January 16 at 3 p.m.  and expresses the hope that as  large a number as possible will attend. For the convenience of  the convenience of those who can  not be there in the afternoon, he  has arranged to meet again 8 p.m.  An effort will be made to organize.  Mine Accidents  in Canada  Statistics recently compiled by  the Commission of Conservation  show that the death rate in Canadian coal mines is much higher  than in any other civilized country  602, the year of the Fernie  disaster, the death rate per 100  men employed (above and below  ground), reached the maximum  rate rale of I 3.25. The average  rate for the ten years preceding  1910, however, was 4.79. Th  United States comes next with on  average rate for the same period  of 3.43. Perhaps the worst aspect  of the situation is the fact that the  death rate from coal mine accidents has been steadily on the  crease in Canada for a number of  years. The minimum rate of 1.83  was reached in 1897. In 1909 t  rate was 4.21. During the same  time there has been a steady de-  crease in all the leading European  countries.  Although the death rate in metalliferous mines in Canada is lower  than in the coal mines, it is much  higher than in any of the European  countries. The death rate in Canada for the period 1900-1909 was  3.82.  With the exception of the Kim-  beiley rliamoi.d mines and the  Transvaal, where native and Chines'- 'a'rour are employed, the fata-  litv r.��te during this period (1900-  1909) was considrrably lower elsewhere than in Canada. It requires  no discussion to emphasize the  importance of an enquiry into the  whole subject of fatal accidents in  the mines of Canada.

Fith Culture in Canada  Hatching fish by artificial means  to stock the waters of Canada is  engaged in on a large scale by the  Dominion Government. In 1909,  the Dominion fish hatcheries planted no fewer than 1,024,282,000  fry in various..waters j throughout  the country. In 1900, only 271,-  996,000 fry were planted by the  government fish hatcheries, ao that  the plant of young fish has increased by nearly 277 per cent, in  the past ten years and the number  of hatcheries has increased from  12 to 37, or 208 per cent. Of the  37 hatcheries now in operation,  British Columbia and Quebec have  8 each, Nova Scotia, NewUBiuns-  wick and Ontario, 5 each; and  Manitoba and Prince Edward Island each have 3.  The amount voted by the Dominion Parliament for fish culture  purposes in 1909 was $322,300,  and of this $180,345, or approximately 56 per cent, was expended.  The importance of carrying on  this work can not be emphasized  too much in a growing county like  Canada, where the increasing population is making greater and  greater demands on the fish supply.

Alfred Tennyson Dickens, oldest surviving son of Charles Dickens, the novelist, died suddenly of  . cute indigestion, at the Hotel  ABtor, New York, last week. Mr.  Dickens who was in the country  on a lecture tour was a godson of  the poet Tennyson. He was in  his 67th year.  Rear Admiral Robley D. Evans,  known as " Fighting Bob" to an  admiring nation, died suddenly at  his home in Washington. Acute  indigestion ended the career of  one of the most popular officers of  the United States navy.  A man named Matthew Bryson,  a native of Scollund, and a resident  of Salmon Arm, committed suicide  on Christmas Day, shooting himself with a 22 rifle.

Honors for Premier Borden  The Rt. Hon. Robert Laird Borden has been the recipient of  thousands of messages of congratulation which came pouring in  from Conservatives and Liberals  alike on his New Year honor of  admission by the King to the rank  of Privy Councillor. Among the  first to congratulate him were His  Royal Highness the Governor-General and the Right Hon. Sir Wilfrid  Laurier. Mr. Borden's elevation to  the privy council came as a surprise to the many who anticipated  a knighthood which bears with it  the title of Sir. But it is no secret  that the prime minister could have  had the knighthood if he wished  it.  There are fifty gentlemen in  Canada with the title of "Sir,"  while there are only five gentlemen who are entitled to the rank  of privy councillor. The distinguished Canadian members in order  of precedence are now Sir Charles  Hipper, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Sir  Richard Cartwright, Sir Charles  Fitzpatrick and Mr. Borden.  While Canada has five privy  councillors, Australia has only one,  New Zealand one, and South  Africa one.  P. E-1.
