The general tirancinl  outlook wus reviewed, and as a p-:e-  Liminary to further negotiations, tlie  following resolution jwas passed: 'Th it  in view oi the large amount ��1 taxes  remaining unpaid, a Tax Sola be nul'l  during the present year."  There seemed to be no disposition on  tho part of any of the Aliornim to  deny the necessity of taking tliis  means of enforcing payment. Mayor  Sutherland also suggested (hat further  representations 'be made to .the go/e.u-  ment to so amend the Municiiinl Act  as to allow a rebate to be given on  all taxes, and not merely on tiu general tax, thus affording a muoh greater inducement for prompt payment.  A formal resolution waa then pans*!  authorizing the Finance eommilto to  make application for a loan up to  $40,000 for.the current expenses .if the  year.  A number of tenders for insurance of  the members of the Fire Brigade wero  received, and these were handed over  to the Fire oommittee who would report at the next meeting.  It waa announced that the last year  members of the Pa'.U cuii.mit fie,  Messrs. L. E. Taylor, Palmer, and D.  W. Crowley, had been reappointed.  Aid. Rattcnbury had been added to  the Public Works oommittee, and Aid.  Harvey to the Light and Water oommittee.  A letter waa read from the Fire  Brigade announcing the reappointment  of Max Jenkins, as chief.  Mention was made of the fire alarm  whioh had been turned in Sunday lust  and whioh had proved to be nothing  worse than a slight chimney fire. This  raised a discussion as to whether tbe  council should not as in most other  towns, compel people to keep their  chimneys 9wept.  A proposal was also disoussed to  relieve the city clerk oi the can oi  the Patriotio Fund, the duties connected with whioh had iuorcasod so much  as.to seriously interfere with the work  of the oity office.  Chief Thomas subnuttad Iris O.ild  annual report whioh drew atteuti in to  the marked reduction in crima 'which  had been 'noticeable sin:o thu outbreak  of the war. He pointed out the need  of better lighting of the baok (lanes of  the oity, more especially in the business part. During ths year there had  been 79 persons charged in the city  polios court, amongst whom were 14  juveniles, 33 Chinamen, 2 Hindoos,  and 1 Jap. The totai value of property stolen had been S673 of whioh  8385 worth had been reoovei-ed.  News has ceen received that the  Kelowna Creamery has taken First  Prize for Butter Prints at the B.C.

The secretary's report was approved and the finances foend to be in a flourishing  condition. The president thought  the association a good thing and  waa sure they had a good sire,  believing it to be well worth $900.  The following officers were elected : Mr. Steele, Pres., Mr. Joslyn  Vice-Pres., Mr. Lake, Sec.-Treas.,  and Messrs. Brown, Stribling, Nicol  and Webber Directors.  support the project.  Mr. I��� V. Rogers was proposed anil  accepted as a new member of thc  Board.  The ordinary meeting was then adjourned and the 'business of the annual  meeting taken up.  The first proceeding was the reading  of the financial statement, in whioh a  considerable improvement was noted  over last year.  i The retiring president, Mr. E. M.  Carruthers, addressed the meeting  briefly. Buring the past year, ho said,  the executive had made economy their  watchword, and had ruduced the liub-  ilities by a considerable amount. All  the outstanding ,notes had been cleared  off, ond ho hoped that by the end of  the next twelve months all debts  would have been paid off.  THE    MINISTER    OF     FINANCE  REQUESTS  THE  PEOPLE    OF    CANADA    TO  BEGIN NOW  TO  SAVE   MONEY   FOR   THE  NEXT WAR LOAN  JOK.S. ��17  DEPARTilMNT OT FINANCE  OTTAWA  would see an increase in fruit ship-  n'ints of at least 30 per cent.���some  shippers said 50 per cent. The amount  of orohard in bearing was as yet only  60 per cent, of what was planted, ond  thc next five years would see all this  coming in.  The lobor shortage was a serious  matter, and he urged farmers to got  ' igellier and organize in some way to  meet the difficulty.  The election of officers followed, thc  first being Mr. H. F. Rees, manager  of tho Royal Bank, who was unanimously selected aB president for the  coming year.  lipon taking his place as ohairmac  of the meeting, Mr. ltees thanked the  members ior ,tho hearty and unanim  ous manner of his election, and. with  characteristic energy went directly into the problems which would 'face the  Board in the near future. He asked  for the earnest cooperation of all in  the work for the advancement of the  district. It must be borne in min.l,  he Baid, that we were not only working for ourselves in this respect, but  also for the boys who were away in  Francs in the Bervioe of their King  .and country. ,  During the past two years thc lin.ud  had been under a heavy financial burden, and this had prevented much attention being paid to publicity and  other matters. People had criticised  the Board for not accomplishing more,  but after all it was "money which  made tho more go." To do very much  funds were necessary, and these could  only come from a larger membership.  He believed that with o little energy  their numbers could easily be-increased  to Boventy-tive paying live members,  who would take an interest and attend the meetings.  He spoke.of the liabilities of the  Board, which had hung like a drag  and a mill-stone around its neck, and  he intended to try t and induoe the executive to see it the remaining debts  could not be cleared off at once  that they could face the rost oi the  year unhampered.  Thero were several matters whieh he  would bring before the Board later.  One was a proposal to amalgamate  the Board of Trade and theMerohants'  Association. The objects of the latter  were in many respects identioal with  thoso of the Board, and a suggestion  he had already placed before that body  he believed had been more or less favorably received  Then thero was tho question of a  now government building, tbe need of  which hod been emphatically pointed  out lately by Judge Swanson. This  was now a separate constituency, and  the need of such a building had become greater. He did not ndvoaate  any expensive or elaborate structure,  but he thought a building oosting between i twelve or fifteen thousand dollars would servo the needs of the distriot for some time to oome, and  would provide accommodation for a  courthouse and stipendiary mogittrate,  provincial police, road superintendent,  fire and game wardens, etc.. He  would ask the Board to instruct the  executive to frame a resolution to  send to the government.  Mr. W. Haug was elected vioo-prosi-  dent, with the following as an executive counoil: Messrs. M. Hereron. F.  W. Giovee, E. M. Carmthere, J. tLeath-  ley, G. Meikle, G. S. MoKenrie, W. G.  Benson, B. C. Weddell, W. D. Brent,  and J. Forater.  Mr. N. D. MoTavish was again elected seoretary, the arrangement however  being temporary, pending the result of  the proposal to amalgamate with the  Merchants' Association. Muoh appreciation Waa expressed of the work of  Mr. MoTnvieb lor the Board over  with the superintendent of our boet  service will feel a real sorrow in his  loss. His unfailing courtesy and (.amine kindness of heart male friends fCr  him wherever he went.  Last week Mr. C. Browse dressed  another fine steer.

Local Grocers Take All Prizes  For Window Dressing  Every yeor tho "Canadian Grocer"  offers prizes for the best dressed store  window appropriate to the season.,  and though the contest is open to the  whole of Canada from coast to,coast,  ond draws forth contestants from a  large number of towns, it .is a-remarkable fact, and no si..all tribute to the  skill and enterprise of our local grocers, that all throe prizes in one olass  should have fallen to Kolowna.  The winners wero: 1st prize, Messrs.  ,J. F. Fumerton & Co. (window dressed by E. Lowley); 2nd prize, D. f>.  Campbell; and 3rd prize, The MoKenzio  Co., Ltd.  Speaking of the contest, the Canadian Grocer lays that it was one a'.  the best in its history, and the displays entered showed a very high order of decorative ability, and coin-  monta upon the fact that "one small  British Columbia town, should have  three successful contestants, any one  of whose displays would have done  marked credit to any of our forger  city stores."  A son was born to Br. snd Mci. 1  A. Hayman-lost Friday.  The fire alarm sounded last Sunday  evening, and the Brigade turned out  to F. Bouvette's house on Pendozi tt.

Mr. W. H. Mantle was reappointed  auditor.  It was arranged that a delegation  from tho executive should wait upon  tho Merchants' Association Friday to  bring the mutter of amalgamation before them.  Before the meeting adjourned Mr.  L. V. Rogers rose to speak on the  question of roads, whioh had been bo-  fore the Board earlier in the meeeing.  He said that owing to the fact that  there were now no road superintendents in the province, the government  woe endeavoring to get in the road  estimates through the Liberal members and also through the Liberal candidates who hod not been elected. He  had been endeavoring to gather information for the purpose, and he  would bcglad if any organizations or  individual! would make their wishes  known to him. At to_the government  building he hod olso token up that  matter with the government, but he  did not think it was one whioh should  be pushed at the present time, ot he  thought that all appropriations should  be reserved for the seorago of water  for irrigation.  Several speakers suggested that it  might be possible to get both, at the  ten or fffteen thousand required for  the building was a mere flea-bite compared with the quarter or half a million whioh would be required for the  irrigation project.  After the usual votes of thanks to  the retiring officer* Ih* meeting was  sdjmirtitd.  Mr. Clarence Dunoon returned Sr.it  day from a visit to Calgary.  Mr. Mugford has enlisted in the Forestry Battalion, and left last Thursd-i,  for Vancouver.

The annual meeting of the Rutland  Women's Institute was hell ia the  school on Thursday laet. There wns  a good uttondance and considerable  business was done.

There seems to have been a disposition for some time past to belittle the importance and usefulness  of the Kelowna Board of Trade.  This has been due, no doubt, chiefly to the fact that enthusiasm in the  work of the Board has been gradually on the wane, and the membership and attendance at meetings has continued to show falling  off. The cause of all this���or rather the excuse, for it should not be  s  accepted as a legitimate   reason���  has been the general depression of  business conditions, and the difficulties and comparative suspension  of progress arising out of the war.  Though all these things coupled  with money shortage and conse-  qdent lack of working funds rendered necessary a period of caution and curtailment of expenditure  no greater mistake could be made  than to imagine that the need for  the Board of Trade has in any degree diminished. Rather, indeed,  has it become more vitally necessary that the leading business men  and citizens of the town should get  together earnestly to protect the  welfare of the city and district, and  to hasten the revival, which all except the most confirmed pessimists,  can already see many indications  of.  Rightly considered, the Board of  Trade is the people's forum, and  the only really authoritative medium through which the needs of  the district can find expression.  Its value as an advisory body to  the Provincial and Federal gttvern-  ments in their relation to this district, and also to the city council,  has time after time been demonstrated. To leave such matters to  party organizations is not only unwise and mostly ineffectual, but  there is the grave danger of leaving the door open to corruption  and political machinations. It is  of no use to rail against partizan  methods of government unless the  public are willing   to   avail  them  selves ot independent means of  making their wants known to the  powers that be.  Jn the Board of.Trade is an excellent instrument for the curbing  of the power of political " pull,  which should have no part in the  determining and obtaining of what  is due to the district as its right  To do this the energetic co-operation of its members is needed to  make it a non-politiral force which  can make itself heard and recognized. The individual or community  which allows itself to sink into  apathy and indifference must inevitably be left behind in the march  of progress.  While no one wishes to recall  the era of mad speculation and  feverish boom times which have  left such disastrous conditions  throughout the west, yet the desire  for legitimate industrial expansion  and the building up of a larger nnd  more prosperous community is one  which should be fostered and encouraged.  rCelowna possesses assets in the  way of attractions as a desirable  place to live, with which few places  in the Dominion can compare, and  the inducing of larger settlement  by people who would be self-supporting and industrious can not  but bring immense advantage's to  all. "Wake up, Kelowna I " would  be a good watchword for the future. Throw off the weight of  cynical pessimism and work for  belter things.  The appointment of Mr. H. F.  Rees as president of the Board is  in itself a guarantee that ne.v life  will be infused into that body. His  tremendous reserve of energy and  practical optimism will not be long  in making itself felt, and we look  forward confidently to a year of  greater activity and usefulness. ,  The case which came up in the  police court last Friday, where a  man was fined for leaving his  horse tied up in the street for six  hours should serve as a reminder  to others, for the case in question  is not an isolated one by any  means. The by-law dealing wilh  the matter places the maximum  time at four hours. In summer  time this is not so bad so long as  care is taken that the horse has  some kind of shelter from the  hot sun, but in winter, especially  during periods of biting cold winds,  such as we have had during the  past week or two, four hours is  altogether too long lo leave any  horse 'standing, unless very well  blanketed.  READ  LABEL  Five hundred and ten thousand  persons have died of starvation in  Syria, according to information received by the Corriere D'ltalia.  Lebanon is said to have suffered  particularly, while at Beirut inhabitants are said to have been picked  up on the streets nearly dying of  hunger. The number of suicides  is increasing to appalling proportions. Similar horrors are reported  as occurriug in Palestine and parts  of the interior inhabited by Christ  ians.  m MAGIC  BAK1N&P0WDER  Orders for  Local  Scouts  "Bl PREPARED"      Kelowna, Troop  Troop Firat;   Self Last  Edited by Pioneer.    Jan. 23rd, '17  ORDERS by command for week  ending February 3rd,  1917.  DUTIES : Orderly patrol for  week.Curlews; next for duty, Wolves.  PARADES: Each patrol will  parade during the week at least  once, at the call of its Leader.  The patrol leaders and seconds  will parade at the club room on  Wednesday the 31st., at 7.15 p.m.  The orderly patrol tor the week  must have a fire at the club room  by 7.15 for any troop parade called for there at that time, or any  parade of leaders or seconds.  What is our membership going  to be on the first of February next?  Only twelve members of the troop  have passed any of the second  class tests and none of these twelve  have even completed the tests.  We ask some scout in the Troop  to mark on Bernard Avenue a distance of half a mile from the club  room, ilso the same distance on  Pendozi Street.  Several good little turns recently  effected by members of the Troop  have come to our hearing, and  without mentioning any names we  thank and congratulate you, not  the least for your modesty in keeping your kind acts entirely to yourselves. We should always be very  glad if anyone in Kelowna or district would bring any good turns  of scouts noticed by them to the  Scoutmaster's attention. r  Scoutmaster Weddell recently  had a letter from Mr. Claude James  who was always a good and helpful friend of the Troop while in  Kelowna. He joined the motor  boat patrol service but is now attached to the H.M.S. "Hermin-  ione". His letter was written from  Southampton and he mentioned  what great assistance an English  scout, patrol leader, Leslie Browne,  of St. Andrews' troop, Southampton,  had been to him in getting up his  signalling. He also wrote as follows :- "Please tell the boys, 1 ent  to a scouts' concert over here and  they can't show the Kelowna Troop  anything, not even singing, and  their sketches are nothing compared to the ones Kelowna can put  on (I salute vou Kelowna!) We are  afraid that sounds as though Mr.  James in his travels has been in  the near neighbourhood of the  Blarney stone, but as we frequently  have to use this column for the  purpose of "dressing down" ourselves, a little "taffy" may do us no  harm. Mr. James also mentions  the great importance of keeping  up our signalling. We wish him  all good luck in the grfat game,  and a safe and speedy return to us.

Boy Scouts in the Far North  (Victoria Headquarters).��� The  rigors of the frozen north have no  terrors for boy scouts. As far  north as Dawson City, Yukon Territory, the scout is almost as familiar a figure as he is in the east  and in the west. Adorned in the  regulation scout uniform, with his  bread rimmed hat, his shorts,  khaki shirt, etc , he goes about the  streets of Dawson City wearing the  same broad smile, doing the same  kind acts, "doing his duty to God  and the King" just as his fellow are  doing in the cities, towns and villages of the east, west and south.  His daily program is the same as  that of scouts through the Dominion. In Dawson City there is a  well trained Troop of twenty-five  boys and a scoutmaster. Considering the locality and the fact that  Dawson City only boasts a population of about eight thousand  people, the strength of the Troop  is no mean total. In a recent letter  the honorary secretary writes as  follows:- "You will, I feel sure, be  interested in knowing that our  Troop here is in a flourishing condition. If consists of twenty-five  members all keen on their work.  They have passed their Tenderfoot  tests and will soon be able to pass  as Second-Class Scouts. They are  fully uniformed in the regulation  scout uniform. We have had two  summer camps and are preparing  for our third spell under canvas."  Dr.  MATHISON  Dentist  KELOWNA   ::   B.C.  J. A.

Monday was the Chinese New  Year and sounds of revel y have  been heard proceeding from the  local Chinatown this week.  The regular monthly meeting of  the Ladies' Hospital Aid will be  held in the Board of Trade rooms  on Monday afternoon, January  29th.  Mr. J. C. Richards,  of Messrs.  Burne &   Weddell, has  been   ap  pointed  a  notary  public  for the"  province of B.C.  Mrs. P. Harding left last Friday  for Nelson, where she will join her  husband. Mrs. Harding leaves a  large ciicle of' friends, who much  regretIher departure.  Pupils will be enrolled in the  receiving class of the public school  from Thursday, February 1st, until  Friday, February 16th. Beginners  must have attained the age of six  years by February 16th.  A government fanning mill is  expected to arrive in Kelowna on  Wednesday next. Farmers having  seed 'to clean Jshould advise the  secretary of the Farmers' Institute  at once so that arrangements can  be made to suit all.  (here will be an informal dance  in aid of the local Red Cross in  Morrison's Hall, on Thursday evening, February 8th. This doubtless  will be the last dance before Lent  begins, so come along and help���  good music, good eats, good time.  Will all ladies willing to assist  please communicate with either  Mrs. Knowles or Mrs. Crowley.  At the police court Friday after  noon C. Ramponi was fined $5 for  a breach of a city by-law in allowing his horse to stand out in thc  street for six hours. Section W, of  By-law 6, states that no horse shall  be allowed to remain tied up in  the street for a longer period than  four hours. Ramponi pleaded  guilty, but stated in explanation  that he had no knowledge of the  by-law in question.  To Help Pack Fruit  In order to augment the supply  of labor in the fruit-growing districts of the province, the depart  ment of education, through the  minister, the Hon. Dr. MacLean,  has made arrangements to permit  of the senior classes in the public  and high schools assisting jn the  work of picking and packing fruit,  This is a temporary arrangement,  and will, to a certain extent, obviate the necessity of employing  Orientals, and will supply the shortage of labor due to the war. The  pupils in these senior classes will  not be required to return to school  until October 1, the school time so  lost being partly made up by a  shortening of the Christmas and  Easter holidays. A circular letter  embodying these changes will  soon be issued by the department.  As was pointed out at the Board  of Trade meeting Tuesday, the value of the scheme to this valley,  where apples are the principal  crop, is not so great as it would be  in a soft fruit district. By October  1st only the earlier varieties of apj  pies are ready for picking, the  heavy main crop coming some  weeks later.  Mr. P. T. Dunn returned Tuesday from a visit to the coast.  Miss Buchanan left for the coast  yesterday, where she will spend a  few weeks looking over the new  spring millinery styles.  Mr. H. H. Price who haa had  charge of the Imperial Oil Co's  depot here left on Monday afternoon, for the coast, where he  tends enlisting in the 231st.  A dance is to be given by the  Fire Brigade in Morrison's Hall  next Thursday evening, February  1st. Come and spend a pleasant  evening. Cards and light refreshments.   Per couple 75c. 10-1  There are many people throughout the Okanagan who will learn  with regret of the death last week-  end at Nelson of Capt. J. C. Gore  superintendent of the C.P.R. lake  service for the Okanagan and Arrow Lakes, after an illness of only  a few days. He was looker) upon  as one of the most efficient officers  in the company's service. He was  64 years of age and leaves a son  and daughter.  A twelve-lesson fruit packing  school course has been arranged  and the date will be published  shortly. The following havejjoined  the school and a few more names  can still be taken:. Mesdames G.

Barron, Raymond Laws,  A. Ritchie and N, Ruhmann.  With the object of raising funds  or the Patriotic Fund a committee  of local ladies are making arrangements to give a children's enter  tainment on Friday, February 16th  ,I'he affair is to be of a somewhat  unusual order and the interest of  various schools and organizations  is v being enlisted. Fuller details  will no doubt be given later on  but in the meantime it may be said  that there will be fancy costume  dances, choruses, recitations, and  probably many novel items. The  Boy Scouts are also to take part  The trustees have granted the use  of the assembly hall in the new  schc ol for the affair.  At the time of the fall fair, Miss  Ursula Whitehead organized i  tag day for" prisoners of war.  The money raised was sent to the  Daily Graphic fund which under  took to send hampers to friendless  prisoners in Germany. That they  have reached their destination is  evident from the fact that during  the past week Miss Whitehead  has received postcards of acknowledgment from the following of  our brave boys of the 2nd Cana  dians: Ptes. Thomas Smith and  Steve Leblanc, Hameln; W. O.  Rourke, Cpl. Robert Minchin end  Tom Taylor, Giessen; F. H. Rew,  Dulmen ;v Pfe. H. Sheard, Fried-  richsfeld ; Ptes. A. T. Kelly.

Dominion Minister of Finance.  ROYAL STANDARD  /  FIELD SEEDS  WE are extending our already extensive field seed business for 1917. It  is the desire of the Canadian Government that tha people produce  as much as possible during the ensuing year, and we are arranging  with the leading dealers throughout British Columbia and Alberta to carry  a complete line of ROYAL STANDARD FIELD SEEDS. These seeds are  the choicest it is possible t > secure in the WorlJ's Market. They are Government inspected and carefully selected for purity.  Seeds should be purchased early as prices inevitably advance as the  Season progresses. In all probability the market will be short and it will be  difficult later in the year to make purchases.
