 ^5  Utcfivb  VOL XI.   NO. 30  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY. JUNE 12. 1919.-4 PAGES  $.50 Per Annum  War Veterans Seek  Aid offlly Council  Revenue Falls Short of Monthly Expenditures   '  A deputation from the local  branch of the Great War Veterana  . waited upon the council Monday  evening to solicit financial assist-  ance, their preaent income from  subscriptions and other sources  having proved inadequate to meet  current expenaea.  The deputation conaiated of Col.  Belson, Dr. Shepherd and Mr. J. L.  Macready, the former acting aa  spokesman. He pointed out that  the preaent income irom membership fees waa about $70 per month,  at 50c per man. They had to pay  $60 per month for caretaking, $25  for tent, and $25 for-a aecretary.  In consequence they were rather  hard preaaed to meet their obligations. Certain entertainmenta had  been given for their benefit, but aa  theae would not be available in the  future, it waa felt that the proceeds  of theae ahould be invested and a  amall permanent income built up.  Thev were at preaent running behind about $40 per month. It waa  of courae a bad time to aeek money  from the city, but other municipalities were giving assiatance to their  local branchea.  In reply to the deputation Mayor  Sutherland aaid it waa not ao much  a queation of the willingness or  ability of the council to make a  grant, but of the legal aapect of it.  The Municipal Act definitely stated what a council could give money for and thia waa apparently not  included. If they could get authority they would not hesitate to  make a grant, but it would be  necessary to obtain legal opinion  on the point.  The deputation retired on a  promise that thia would be done  and a report presented at the next  meeting.  Wilson Landing and  Westside Notes  A rather extensive flume haa juat  been completed aupplying water to  the Cotvale Ranch. M *ssrs. Graham  and Berry who were working upon  it, returned to Okanagan Centre on  Friday evening last.  Mr. M. B. Ellis has purchased the  Hanson property here and although  they have only recently mqved onto  it, Mr. and Mrs. Ellis have already  made many improvements, especially in the addition to the houae.  Mr. Simon Perdue, ot Peterboro,  Ont, haa joined hia brother on the  Big Horn Ranch, With vouth and  enthusiasm and a lev) other necessary qualifications, they have success ahead of them.  Mr. Steele of Westbank wss here  for some days last week, having  the road, which was badly in need  of it, put under the necessary  repairs. When finished il will  certainly be appreciated, a* in some  parts it has been more like a rock  pile than a road for a considerable  time-  Mr. and Mra. Spence of Oroville,  Wash., came up the Westside in a  "prairie schooner" drawn by a stalwart four-horse team, having all the  necessary fittings for their comfort  on the long trip which is to take  them two months, their destination  being the Peace River country.  At the conclusion of the assizes  at Vernon this week the court  awarded $2500 and $550 medical  expenses to a Penticton boy named Armstrong, who waa aueing-the  City of Penticton for damagea due  to being hit by the fire truck in  November, 1917  The suit of the Central Okanagan  Land Co., against Wm. Rae of Rut  land, for an unpaid balance of  $1000 and interest on property  purchased five years ago, was sett!  ed out of court, by arbitration, de-  fendent withdrawing all counter  charges against the company, and  agreeing-to pay the principal in  full. 'At the same time Mr. Wallace  owner of the adjoining laud agreed  to purchase the place from Mr.  Rae.  and Expenditures Considered  Council Fixes Tax Rste for Current Year - Lowered Assessment Makes Necessary Rate, of Thirty-Six Mills  -  Must Provide Surplus Against Unpaid Taxes  The financial budget for the year  waa the |chief matter under con-  aideiation by the city council laat  Monday evening. This was introduced by a formal report from  Aid. Rattenbury, chairman of the  Finance committee, embodying  the estimates submitted some time  ago by . the various committees.  For the first time a levy is to be  made on improvements, though  only on 25 per cent, of their assessed value.'  Referring to the estimates as  presented Aid. Rattenbury aaid it  would be noted that the amount  required waa $60,912, and in order to raiae thia on the reduced  assessment a rate of 36 mills waa  neceaaary. To meet requirements  of the new Municipal Act amendment, the amount mentioned would  have to be aupplemented by a aum  equal to the amount of unpaid  taxea of the preaent year. At the  end of 1918, 30 per cent, of the  1916 levy remained unpaid. Owing to improved financial conditions and the penalty of 15 per  cent, imposed on unpaid taxea,  which becomes effective this year,  the committee were assuming that  60 per cent, of the taxea would be  paid. Thia would leave a shortage  of $12,000. which they adviaed be  raised by a levy on 25 per cent, of  the value of improvements.  Reviewing some of the increases  of expenditure this year as compared with last, Aid. Rattenbury  pointed out that school estimates  were up about $4,000; porks  $1,200, and public works $1,450.  Since the depression following  the war, the assessment on land  values on which the tax levies were  baaed, had been reduced from  $2,729,225 in 1914, to $1,631,460  in 1919. Thia waa a reduction of  slightly over 40 per cent., and necessitated an increaae in the tax  levy from 24 mills in 1914 to 36  in 1919.  The report waa adopted with  very little diacuaaion, all (he details having been previously threshed out in committee, and a by-law  fixing the rate at 36 mills given  three readings.  On behalf of the Light committee Aid. Duggan reported .that the  Kelowna Sawmill Co., from whom  the power house was obtaining its  sawdust for fuel, had pointed out  that this year the plant was using  from 25 to 50 per cent, more sawdust per day than last vear. In  view of this the Sawmill Co. requested an increaae in the rate  paid for the aawduat and hauling  to the boiler, from $ 16 to $20 per  day. Thia waa granted by reaolution, Aid. Duggan remarking that  even with the 25 per cent, addition  the sawdust was by far the cheap-  eat fuel obtainable.'

Afternoon taa will bs served.  Every day during the pant week  has increased the number of the  returned men. Last week Lt. G. W.  Strang, one of the old B. C. Horse  men who left during the first few  weeks of war arrived, and. was  congratulated upon his promotion,  which he had richly deserved.  W. MeTavish was also an arrival Thursday last.  On Monday Arthur and Lome  Lemon, who have been in France  with the Medical Corps, came  home. Frank K. Akroyd alao came  in, atill uaing crutchee and with leg  bandaged from the effect of a  ahrapnel wound. Capt. Ford, of  the Mission, waa alao received by  a party of friends.  On'Tueaday arrived Ewan Mc-  kssefisn. a  I7jnd boy who   Ims  been in France tor a couple of  yeara and only left Belgium a few  weeka ago. Although be haa aeen  much aervice he haa escaped with  only a alight flesh wound.  Serg. Harvey Brown was one of  the earlieat to enliat from Kelowna  joining the 30th batt. He reached  France in May, 1915 and later  tranaferred to the 48th Highlanders. He carries the Military Medal,  service star and a wound stripe.  Returning- the same day were  Ed. Weeks, A. Mitchell and Alf.  Adams.  Yesterday Corp. W. Woods  came in while to-day's boat brought  Serg. R. Peters, formerly messenger ot the Bank of Montreal and a  member of the old B.C, Horse.  Rutland News  dress I  Mr. J. Wallace has purchased  the orchard of W. D. Rae. .  The St. Andrew's Ladies' Guild  are arranging a social to be held  in the church grounds on June 24.  Candy, ice cream, strawberries,  cake and tea, will be on sale. No  charge will be made at the gate.  Mrs. Lvnch from Port Haney is  visiting Mrs. E. Mugford.  The subscription list for the War  Memorial Fund now totals $646.40.  Mr. J. Wallace and Mr. S. Gray  motored to Vernon on Tuesday.  Don't forget to keep Saturday  the 28th open for the big sports  day at Rutland. Further particulars  are to be given later.  On Saturday evening last the  Lumby football team played a return game with the Rutland-Ellison  combination, at the Rutland School  grounds. The game was fast but  clean, and for a while the visitors  looked like sure winners, but the  home team succeeded in recovering the lead toward the close of  the laat half, the final acore being  4���3 in'their favor. It is regrettable  that certain members of the Kelow-1  na team could not have been preaent, as it would have been an  education for them in the proper  manner and spirit in which to play  a game of football. Rough plays,  offsides and "sore-heads" were  conspicuous by their absence. The  victors refrained from "cr*Swing,"  and the losers took their beating  like the good sports that they were.  After the game a supper was served in the school-houae to the membera of both teams, by the young  ladies of Rutland and Ellison.  There ia a proapect of another  game at Lumby in the near future.  Vernon ia also reported to be trying to arrange a match.  The* fortnightly meeting of the  Young Peoples' Society took place  in the achool-houae last Friday  evening. There was an interesting  address by Rev. Mr. Connal upon  the subject of "Personal Influence."  Miss W. Homuth contributed a  pianoforte solo to the programme.  On the next regular meeting  night, Friday, June 20th, there is to  be an open concert for the purpose  of raiaing funds to purchase equipment for a tennis court, which the  society hopes lo establish in the  school grounds. The programme  will be given almost entirely by the  young people of the district, and  in addition to the usual program of  solos, duets and instrumental selections there is to be a "camp-fire"  scene by six returned soldiers, who  will sing a number of the songs  and choruses that were popular  "over there." An interesting  dialogue is also being prepared. It  is hoped that there will be a large  audience, as the admission fee is  to be the reasonable sum of 25c  only.  The Y.P.S. deserves the support  of everyone in its efforts to promote the social and athletic side of  the community's life. It is to the  Y.P.S., in the first instance, that we  owe the series of interesting football games of the paat two months.  The latest song craze in the U.S  bears this somewhat in-elegant title:  "How are vou gonna keep 'em down  on the' farm, after they've seen  'Paree'?"   That question is a very  fiertinent one, and the best solution  ies in taking full advantage of the  long summer evenings lor the promotion of athletics, etc., and try to  dispell, in that way, the popular  idea that it is the young people of  the towns and cities who have all  the fun.  .   ��� o���   Mrs. Temple left Saturday on a  visit to England.  Miss Jessie Adams of Vancouver  is visiting her cousin, Mr. W. E.  Adams.  The Revds. J. R. Gretton (Rural  Dean), H. A. Solly. C. H. Shortt. R.  Alderson and G. Stewart came in  on Monday toe-attend a Chapter  meeting of the Rural Deanery ol  Okanagan. They left on Wednesday, by the morning boat, for their  respective parishes.  Rev. Dr. Fraser, principal of the  Presbyterian Theological College,  Montreal, will preach at both services in the United church on Sunday next. Dr. Fraser is one of the  most distinguished Presbyterian  ministers in Canada and is recognized as a leading educationist in  tho Dominion.  New Association Will  Market Seed Crops  Open  to Make Contracts for  Beet and Sugar Beet Seed  The seed growing industry of  the province was advanced another  step this week by the organization  at Penticton of the-"United Seed  Growers' Association," which will  have a warehouse at Penticton for  the purpose of cleaning, grading  and marketing the product of the  valley. The convection of seed  growers which aaaembled there  Tuesday discussed the- prospects  of the business from many angles  and from the interest and enthusiasm shown it is likely that rapid  strides will be made in the near  future.  Although shares in the new concern are to ba offered for subscription to the general public, all the  officers and directors eppointed  must be seed producers. In view  of the generous assistance being  given by both federal and provincial governments to the project,  the amount ot stock to be sold is  not large. Of the $7,500 required  the Dominion government will contribute $2,500, the province $2,500;  leaving fa like amount for public  subscription.  It might be mentioned th:.. .Ire  Association has already arranged  to enter into contracts with seed  growers for sugar beet and beet  aeeda, guaranteeing therefor a minimum price of 19c and 10c respectively, cleaned and graded.  These are to be delivered in 1920,  as of course it takes two years to  raise a crop of root seeds. The  stock seed is to be provided. The  Association will also handle all  stock seeds of standard varieties  for growers.  a  Saturday's Baby Contest  The Better Babies Contest is going K, be the great attraction at the  CartWal 9i> Saturday. Last week  a report gained circulation that the  contest had been dropped owing  to the sudden illness of Dr. Telford.  This was not correct, however, and  arrangements will be carried out  aa planned, and give promiae of a  very successful affair.  Thia contest is open to all children from one to thirty-six months  of age. An entrance fee of one  dollar will be charged and prizes  are offered for the best boy and  best girl baby as well aa a apecial  prize for the beat baby in the  ahow.  The different classes are aa follows: I ���6 months, 7��� 12 months,  13���24 months, 25���36 months.  The committeeJias arranged to  have three outside doctors to assist  the local physicians in judging the  babies, and also have secured the  services of several nurses.  Kelowna Wants Storage  Facilities  How about a froat-proof storage  building for Kelowna ? Juat a little  one for a start, to hold say, a hundred carloads of fruit and vegetablea, such as the Kelowna Storage  Co.' hope to build. Wouldn't it  help if a strike was on, or cars were  short or glut of fruit coming in too  faat to be packed and ahipped, to  know we had atorage ) Much better than having to atop picking till  further ordera. More satisfactory  than pitting the spuds or storing  onions at the coast.  Another thing. Who gets the  spring pricea on produce ? The  party who bbught it from us in the  fall and stored it. Will be furnish  capital for Us to build storage? No  :hance. He wants us to raise the  tuff and hand it over.  We have applied the principle  in our canneries and in the creamery ; the time has come to build  storage, in fact it should be ready  novi. Vernon has completed storage for two hundred and. fifty carloads ; just a measure of insurance.  $35,000 is required (the price" of  five and twenty autos). Shares are  $ 10 each, pay able $ I on application  and the balance in the fall. Eight  per cent, interest on your money is  guaranteed by the terms of the  lease. Can you find anything safer  than this public utility. There's  no use saying "Let George do it"  because he may not. It will require  a little help from everyone to put a  storage building on the map of  Kelowna.  Benooulin Notes  The Benvoulin Auxiliary of the  W.M.S. met at the home of Mra. E.  A.

Duggan & Davie* to look after  my intereata in Kelowna and  district, 1 am now prepared to  place at the diepoaal of the  public my 27 yearaexperience  in the auctioneering business.  This experience haa covered  auction of every description  but more particularly in the  line of Cattle, Farm, Implements and Household Furniture. 1 am also prepared to  make an offer of purchase on  all movables such as Farm  Stock, Implements and Household effects. Arrangements for  sales and any information required can be obtained at the  office* of Harvey, Duggan 6c  Davie*.  G. H. KERR  KELOWNA   NEEDS   LONGER  LIST OF TAXPAYERS  The high cost of municipal government is becoming a source of  worry to our city fathers just as  much as the high cost of living is  troubling the thrifty housewife.  This week the council had the  somewhat unpleasant task of fixing  the highest tax rate which has ever  obtained in Kelowna. In this case  however, the higher cost is more  apparent than real. Thirty - six  mills does indeed sound pretty  steep, especially when we remenv  ber that at   the  war in 1914 the rate was only  twenty-four. In that happy past,  too, we were able to spend up to  fifteen thousand dollars on public  works, where now a mere fraction  of this has to suffice. But though  the rate is so much higher, the actual taxes payable are only slightly  so. In feet, had it not been for two  special financial requirementawhich  have been rendered necessary by  amendments to the Municipal Act,  the amount asked from the ratepayers this year would be much  less than in 1914 -$6000 less.  The mill rate is misleading.  The special requirements referred to are $2000 for interest on the  Sinking Fund deficit, and $12,199  to be raised in excess of actual  needs to provide a surplus against  taxes which may not be paid when  due. These two amounts have  never been levied before, and make  the whole levy thia year $8,248 more  than in 1914. This amount compared with the total levy is only a  small amount and does not explain  the difference between 24 mills  and 36 mills.  * The reason for this is to be look,  ed for in the reduced assessment  Since the money needed to run  the city must be found somewhere  it is inevitable that when the assessment comes down the tax rate  goes up. This reducing of the assessment in order to make the  taxes less leminds one of the Irishman in the lumber camp who in  his bunk at night found that while  he always had plenty of blanket to  cover his shoulders his feet would  persistently stick out into the cold.  He tried to remedy this by cutting a couple of feet off the top  and sewing it on to the bottom,  with poor success. He needed bigger blankets and Kelowna needs a  bigger list of taxpayers. Whatever  value is placed upon the properly  taxed it has to bear its share of the  cost of the city's expenses. Since  1914 the assessment on land values has been gradually reduced by  about 40 per cent, and in consequence the mill rate has risen.  Whatever may be the sins of the  city council, one can certainly not  accuse them of extravagance. Certain fixed expenses have to be met  chief of which are thirty thousand  dollars for debenture expense and  eighteen thousand odd for schools.

PARADES: The combined troop  will parade at the clubroom on  beginning of the 'Wednesday, June 18th, 1919, at  7.15 p.m. There will probably  only be two more parades before  camp, and it is necessary for us to  know whether any members of the  troop are going to find it impossible  to attend through absence from  town or inability to get away from  work. We shall be able to announce  the exact dates for camp next week.  We are much indebted to the  assistance of Mr. W. B. M. Calder,  who happened to be in Vancouver when  we tent along our order for leveti. bell  tents. Six of theae tenti have already arrived and are in splendid shape, the seventh will be along shortly. We were able to  get them from the War Purchasing Com.  mission at $10 each including poles, pegs  and mallets, with sacks to contain the tents  etc, which is very cheap. We note that  the same tents are being advertised by a  concern in England for ��5 each. Ihe  tents were also sent to us with the freight  paid, so that is one camp problem already  settled very nicely. Other years we have  been fortunate enough to be able to borrow  them from the camp at Vernon, but of  course there are no more military tents at  Vernon, and if we had not been able to  buy the tents, we should have been very  much embarrassed in finding the necessary  number for camp. With all tents of the  same size and kind it is possible to keep a  much neater camp and also to make the  daily tent inspection more easily.  We have to thank Dr. and Mrs. Boyee  who have kindly lent the use of their lawn  to the scouts for playing tennis.  ���        ���  ���  We print the following from the Editor's  Notes from the May issue of the Headquarters Gazette. He is discussing a  meeting of a Pack of Wolf Cubs he had  just been attending and writes:���  "As I travelled home that night 1 could  not help thinking of another keen young  cub who twelve months ago stood before  me making the cub promise. He was a  tremendously keen but rather shy and  nervous boy. He seemed to know this,  and to determine he would practice small  acts to become brave, and so he went  resolutely into the river whenever he got  the chance, and always ran about in camp  with bare legs and no hat, and seemed as  healthy and as jolly as a cub could be.  Then a few weeks ago he realized he was  attacked with pneumonia. He quite realized he was going to die. In fact, so clearly did he realize it, that he begged he  might be buried in his cub uniform, and  that the troop and pack should parade at  his funeral. But he wasn't in the least  afraid. Hia one anxiety, as his doctor told  me, was lest he should not be brave, and  after a long spasm of pain he would  whisper to the doctor, 'Oh, doctor, do tell  me if I have been brave?' and the doctor  assured me afterwards that ofthe hundreds  of people whose deaths-beds he had attended, never had he seen one braver than this  little cub."  The Entrance Class (Division I.)  has developed mumps just at the  time of examinations. We are out  of luck this year. Still we muBt be  thankful that the school has come  through this trying vear without  any serious sickness developing.  All the teachers are agreed that  this has been a most trying year  both on teachers and pupils alike.  The parents too have felt the many  inconveniences forced upon them,  but on the whole they have borne  them willingly.  The children who are taking out  Thrift Stamps must now get them  at   the   Banks or  Post Office or  wherever they are sold.    We hope  that  the  effort put  forth   by  the  school has been fruitful of a spirit  of thrift.    This summer will be a  great season for laying in a store  .of stamps  for  High   School  and  University days.  ���        s  '   ���  Mr. W. R. Trench was a visitor  to the school last week.  ���      <**  *  Miss Mildred Renwick substituted for Miss Hunter last week.  lt is estimated that the first Got  don Head (Vancouver Island)  strawberries will be on the market  between the 15th and 20th of June.

Son Confesses to  Murder of Father  Nurse Grummett, who has been  staying in Kelowna for some time  past, left a tew days ago for her  home at Pettapiece, near Brandon.  She was the recipient this week of  terrible news. Last November the  mysterious disappearance of her  father caused considerable sensation in the neighbourhood. Though  diligent search waa made no trace  could be found of him. The police continued to work on the caae  and a few days ago Reuben Grummett, her brother, confessed to  having shot his father dead in a  quarrel over the lease of the farm,  and buried him near by. To conceal hia crime and to set the police  ���n a wrong scent, the unhappy  young man bitched up a hoise in a  buggy and aent it loose along the  road, where tke next day it was  found some miles away, as if the  missing man had apparently deserted it. The self-confessed murderer who it a young fellow and married about a yesi ago, now lies in  gaol facing the consequences of  hia awful deed. The dead man  was a brother of W. W. Grummett,  of Benvoulin, and possessed considerable wealth.  Dr. MATHISON  Dentist  KELOWNA   ::   B.C.  Co-operate With US  and be assured of GOOD RETURNS on  your 1919 Fruit and Vegetable Crops.
