BRITISH COLUMBIA THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 1915.���6 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Board of Trade Does  KELOWNA DEBATING  Endorses Plan for Formation  of Road Districts  That the Kelowna Board of  Trade does not as a hotly la-Vui  the proposals which are to t-ouie  before the legislature shortly regarding the introduction of a  moratorium in the province was  evident front the tone of the discussion at Tuesday's meeting  and also from the subsequent  resolution which was passed.  The exemptions from pavnitul  of interest, taxes and priu'ipaJ  on mortgages was regarded as  altogether too sweeping, Mid  even the more modified form of  delaying paynia.ni utiiy ol principal was a dangerous stfep to  take. The following resolution  proposed by Mr. E. C. Weddck  and carried by a large majority  perhaps very nearly represented  the general feeling on this important matter:  "Resolved that the Board  view with disfavor any slighted moratorium legislation except in so far as such legiaiaiion  may give the judges of our  courts wider and discretionary,  powers in extending the traits  ior payment under mortgages  and agreements for sale in deserving cases."  An amendment of Mr. K. I"  Kerr's framed to give a way of  escape for those who had been  stung by the various land  booms into purchasing lots at  fictitious values, was lost. This  was worded as follows: "And  the Board holds that in cases  of iniquitous agreements ol sale  where the land is praclicallv  without value, the judges should  have power to cancel ths agreements at the request of the  purchaser after a certain proportion of the purchase price  had been paid."  Road Districts Proposed  Amongst the matters left over  from last meeting was a communication from the Fort  George Board of Trade, which  while recognizing that the government was doing mucti towards the construction ot main  trunk roads, contended tltat better communication with farms  and settlements was needed before the country could be properly developed. For this purpose they made the fo.1 lowing  recommendations:  The formation of road districts ten miles square on a requisition signed Uv a majority  of the residents. The distucts  to have the mapping out aud  making of settlers roads to  communicate with trunk loads.  Each district to have a road  master appointed annually. The  assessments to be paid either in  labor or cash. This' .was endorsed.  Acknowledgements of correspondence on the matter of the  irrigation problem, and ulso  on the proposal for a free ferrv  to Westbank. In the latter case  it was decided to try to interest  the settlers across the lake.  Thc C.P.R. wrote acknowledging their error in placing Ke ���  lowna in their tariffs as a flag  station and stating that the  correction had been made.  A request was received .;ot  exhibits from Kelowna for the  new kiosk at Sicamous, which  was now completed. Thy matter was left with the executive.  In accordance with a notice  of motion from last meeting  the question of reducing fees to  from |io to $.5 for town members and $3 for countrv members was discussed, and finally  an amendment that the fee be a  uniform one of S.s for all was  carried.  The following new ;ne.i "hers  were elected: Messrs. W. M. Edwards and Jas. I. Campbell.

The rMifl'l  given for awarding the busiuesr,  to Mr. Fisher, although his #as  not the lowest tender, was that  the cheaper policies were not to  satisfactory. Some of the other agents had offered to communicate with their head jflices  way elsewhere  Although it was pointed out  that the closing of the entraua:e  was to be only of a temporary  nature in order to retain legal  possession, the question was  raised as to the right ot the  owners to do this, and it was  suggested that the government  might be able to establish a  claim to a road through to the  wharf.  In conversation with the u.ay-  or, Mr. Hamilton Lang had expressed the view that it was up  to the city to provide a load  to the wharf, and had referred  them to some old agreement,  whereby the city had been pledg  ed to contiuie Bernard avenue  to the wharf. No one present,  however, had any recollection  of any such agreement.  It was decided to suggest to  the government that mey expropriate a right of way.  A request was received from  Mr. J..L- Eljiott, of Peachland  for permission to hire a 5 horse  power gasoline engine from the  city., The clerk, however, was  instructed to state that the city  did not wish to hire out on engine, but would be willing to  sell it if desired.

The number of cases to  come up before the magistrate  had beeta eight, and the lines  collected $210.  On January 2nd an Austrian  named Dragics Petcowies was  arrested and charged with supplying an Indian with liquor.  He was found guilty and fined  $50 and costs.  On January 6th Ahe Chief aud  Constable Gibb had raided the  premises of a Chinaman uamed  Liang Koi. who with ainother  man were charged with keeping  nn'opiuiu joint. Liang Koi was  fined $100 and costs, the other  man getting off free.  The report stated that although storekeepers and others  had been repeatedly warned  about securing their premises  after business hours, the doors  of one of the banks had been  found unfastened at 2.30 a.m ,  on the 23rd. Sneak thieves were  also still at work and several  parcels had bcien stolen troni  rigs in thc streets, and a pair  of boots from outside a store.  Irrigation Water  A notice was received from  the Comptroller of Water  Rights in reference to the water  supplied within the citv from a  record on Brant's Creek, mid  asking for payment of fee of  $16.  In discussing the matter it  was felt that it was up to tht  few users of the water ieft to  keep the reco.rd going if thev  wanted it. It was also recalled that last year portions of the  flume had been condemned, and  notice given that it must be repaired   before   it could be used  (OoaUaaai aa Pan 6.1  nearly the membership whiett it  should be able to get in Kelowna and district. A speciil appeal is made to every farmer  poultry fancier or anv one interested in poultrv to come to the  annual meeting and join the association and make it bigger  and better.  One of the chief objects of lhe  association is to be able to bug  feed in car load lots ait m't-i-  mum prices. This in of vital  interest and will be goae into  at next meeting.  The association is doing good  work. It has been instrument tl  in the betterment of pure bred  poultry and it arouses enthusiasm and creates a friendly rivalry among its members whii.-h  means advancement in utility  and fancy poultry.  Many of the members who ,i  few years ago bred ordinary  stock in a hap-hazard wav today are going after the best  they can get. Mr. J. M Harvev has iust received t\ui extra  fine Rhode Island Red pallets  from one of the best breeders in  the United States. Mr. A. D.  Weddell has received the silver  medal which he won on his pen  of Barred Rocks. ' The breeding  and keeping of such H��ds M  these is one of the benefits that  the Poultrv Association has accomplished. It is also necessary  that all poultrv breeders co-operate to better their marl: >t  conditions.  Do not forget the_date oi the  annual meeting and lie sure  attend.

Switzerland's Narrow Escape  Writing in the Paris ''.Journal" thc Geneva barrister, II  Paul Balmer, who has just returned from a lonj; trip iit the  interior of Germany, slates  that he was told bv a VVurtein-  berjj officer it was onlv a majoi-  itv of two votes that the general staff decided to cross thu Belgian frontier rather than invade  Switzerland.  Manv niilitarv experts were  of the opinion that the Switzerland route was much tne bitter  of the two, as thev feared that  France has prepared her defence  for an invasion through Belgium, on account of revelation  made bv military critics like  von Berrihardi, von der Goltz,  Treitscltke, and others.  It was onlv on account ol ilia'  great difiicultv of entirely Jiang  ing mobilization plans at the  last moment that Switzerland  was saved.  Editor Kelowna Record:  Dear Sir,���In a recent debate  on liquor prohibition which interested many, important facts  and figures were quoted by ba'lh  aliirmative and negative speakers, but the two main liquor  problems wercjinprobed ansl on:  of them unstated.  1.���The social drinker, whether temperate or not, has his  needs supplied at the bar, li^hl  warmth, companionship, a  choice of mild or strong .ttiuni-  lants, and thc amenities of mutual "treating"; but the presence of gentle companions and  of all reforming influences is  barred in the bar; the way is  open to repeatedly "setting 11  the drinks", while temperate  conviviality is made very tlilli-  cult. Prohibitionists say we  must cleat" all this away; but  thev do not explain what is to  be "the poor man's club" instead of the bar, nor face the  problems of secret driiiKing  clubs which follow on prohibition.  The philosophers of temperance as the antithesis of coercive abstinence should be ready  on the other hand witb proposals how to change the present system. It is etear Uiat  individual owners of bars are  nol to blame for faults in 1 na-  tienal system resting both an  law and custom.  2.���Apart from the question  of drinkers who are sometimes,  or often excessive, is the problem of drunkards, periodic or  habitual, and this is usually ignored. While these inebriates  arc probablv less than one per  cent., of the adult population  they impress the public mind  and arc actually disposed to be  typical of all who are not ta'C-  totallers! And moreover ii Is a  common kind of careless tnlk,  confusing the signs of different.  kinds of weakness, to fasten the  reputation of being drunken on  a person who docs not even use  alcohol.  The truth is. we have no right  lo condemn and despise the inebriate while wc refuse to ,'ttldv  the causes of his disease and its  treatment. He is often, opci-  haps usually, conspicuous in  powers of work and of friendship, and is well worth helping.  The meshes of state prohibition  however well intended, wi'l U"t  save him.  A useful classification is pirtn  in a paper printed from the British Journal of Inebriety, April  mi', based on Hare's division  of alcoholics into chronic and  periodic. Genuine dipsoinanie.es  form a large class of periodic al-  cholics; their troubles need skilled medical attention and need  relief from mental worry, eyestrain, and so on.  Men arc continually "convict  cd and imprisoned for drunkenness who could no more have  helped this outbreak than thev  could have avoided a migraine  headache, an attack of .ist'mia.  or anv other form of epileptic  equivalent,"  The writer above aiuolcd  makes a plea for anti-alcoholic  dispensaries, the financial expense of whichwould be trliiUig:  and no doubt if these were established in large cities we  should soon be able to draw upon a fund of knowledge with  whieh to help anv alcoholic  friend or neighbor.

PAMOTISM^PRODUCTKJN  The Empire's Call to Farmers  "Approximately twenty million men have been mobilized in Europe. A large proportion of these have been withdrawn from the (arms of the countries at war. Even In  neutral countries large numbers of food producers bave been called from the-Und to be  ready for emergencies. It is difficult for us to realize what will be the effect on food production through the withdrawal of several million men bom all the great agricultural  countries of Europe. These millions cease to be producers, they have become consumers,  ���worse still, they have become destroyers of food."  HON. MARTI., BURRELL, tUnuter ot Agriculture.  Britain must have food���food this year,  and food next year. Britain is looking to  Canada to supply most of that food. We  are tending our surplus now, but we must  prepare for a larger surplus  this year and next year.  Patriotism and Production  must go hand in hand  Because of this need of  the Empire for more food, and  the call to Canada In that  need, the, Canadian Department   of   Agriculture   has  arranged for a   series of Conferences  throughout the Dominion with the object  of giving suggestions as to the best ways of  Increasing production of the particular  ATTEND  YOUR  CONFERENCE  products needed at this time. At these conferences agricultural specialists, who have  studied agricultural conditions and production throughout the world, and the best  means of increasing agricultural production in Canada,  will give valuable information  and suggestions to the farmers, live-stock men, dairymen,  poultrymen, vegetable  growers, and other producers  of this country. The Canadian Department of Agriculture  urges you to attend as many of these Conferences as possible, also to watch for other  information on the subject that will be given  in other announcements in this newspaper.  Put Energy into Production of Staple Foods  The Government does not ask  farmers to work harder, so  much as it urges them to make  their work more productive, and  to produce those staple foods  that the Empire most needs and  that can be most easily stored  and transported.  Europe, and particularly  Britain, will need the following  staple foods irom Canada more  than ever before:���  Wheat, oata, com, beau, peaa.  Beef, mutton, bacon aad ham.  Cheese and batter.  Canadian  Department of  Agriculture,  Ottawa, Canada  Poultry and eggs.  Vegetables, such as potatoes,  onione, and turnipa.  The' larger the yield of these  staple food products, the greater  the service to tho Empire.  Germany in the last ten years  has doubled the average yield  of the majority of ber field  crops largely through better  seed, thorough cultivation and  use of fertilizer. And while  the Empire's armies are busy  putting down German Militarism, let us at home appropriate  the best of Germany's agricul  tural methods for the Empire's  advantage.

Baptist Young People's  Society  There was a large attendance  at the weekly meeting of the  Baptist Young People's Society  on Monday when Mr. A. F.  Pelton presented some beautiful  lantern views on "Rambles oni  the East Coast." In the course  of trips taken to various parts  of Nova Scotia Mr. Pelton liad  snapped a'number of picturesque  spots on that beautiful i.-Uind  and the results were thrown on  the sheet with great uleasure to  those present. The views were  very clear and gave a good idea  of the beauties of Nova Seotia.  A number of views of thc co.tst  around Boston were also sh'uvn  and at the close of the pictures  candv was handed around. Mr.  Pelton was heartily thanked lor  the pleasant evening he had given as was Mrs. Pelton for the  candies.   a   With grim humor, the soldit.rs  call the official urinted postcard  served out to them to send laconic and stereotyped messages  to their relatives, thc "I'm not.  dead" cards.  t"'  I       Publications Branch, Canadian Department of Agriculture, I  -                                                Ottawa. _  ���       Please send list of Publications Available, for Distribution "  ft    Name a  |  I    P.O.

Gore, Graduate Llewellyn College  Of Astrology  Brief Items of  War News  It is not unusual to hear experienced farmers and oilier*' remark that things sown or planted with the moon 'on the wane'  will never prosper, while on the  * contrary, the last quarter is the  best time for the cutting of  hair, destruction of weeds, etc.  It is very.easy for those"who  have made no study of the .matter to class such statements as  "superstition" and. say there is1  "nothing in their." but expeii-  ence gives proof of the contrary.  The Chinese and Jariaueiie-, so  successful in gardening operations, are said to be always  careful to observe the Zodiacal  constellations occupied by the  moon, as well as its phases, at  the time of planting. To work  according to rule in this matter  is one thing, to attempt anv explanation of the moon's effect  on vegetation is another, and  one rarely undertaken by the  most faithful adherents to the  rule.  The effect of the moon, sun  and even the major-planets <-n  gravitation, tides and weather  is generally admitted by all:  astro-meteorology is an -established science and tides are calculated for a vear in advance,  according to the relative positions of the moon -and sun.  The treatment of disease cy  means of sun rays, "X" rays  and "N" ravs is becoming common, and the effect of the -sun  and moon on vegetation comes  under the same class of phenomena; that is to sav, it is a case  of electric vibration and magnetic polarity���it is not the  visible "liiht" of the nijon that  affects growth, but the magnetic conditions prevailing according to its relative Position to  the sun and other planets and  constellations at the time of  Planting.  The writer is in 'possession ,)f  ���/reports of experiments along  these lines, which <ro to prove  the truth and usefulness of the  astrological rules for plantiiur.  these will be furnished on request, with names and address  The subject has been but barely touched upon here, a rrjallv'  adequate "explanation" of it  woijld be bevond the scope of a  short article. ���  For the benefit of anv who  would- like to experiment l>  planting according to the moon  "signs" as well as phases, a  table giving the most favorable  days for the ensuing week, is  added:  The whole of this week from  the . 24th to the 27th of the  .month, is favorable forsowing  all -plants except roots from  11 a.m., to 12 noon is the most  favorable time. Thursday. 25th  is also good. Flowerinc plants  as well as lettuce, cabbage, tomatoes, etc., sown on these  days, will ircrminate better and  grow more quickly, than those  sown on anv other dav in this  wejek.  * The old general rule ii; to  plant in the first and second  quarters of the moon such articles as grow- above the gtound.  during the third quarter, roots,  etc., and during the lust quarter  destroy weeds, turn sod, -etc.  Onions are not classed as root s,  and should be sown in the first  quarter or new moon.  RUSSIA'S AEROPLANES  A great deal has been heard  concerning ihe British \iid German aeroplanes but the great  Sikorsky biplanes used bv the  troops of the Czar have been  rather overlooked. These machines named Sikorsky, arc by far  the biggest aeroplanes in the  world. They stand sixteen feet  high, and are about 100 feet in  width. The Sikorsky can carry  almost as many passengers as  an airship, and has a large passenger cabin which is construct  ed of metal and contains numerous windows.  In, this machine three engines  are fitted, which give a total ot  nearly' 1,000 horse power.  The weight of the machine has  necessitated an elaborate binding chassis, composed of numerous springs and pneumatic  tubes, so that the huge biplane  can alight safely on rough or  hard ground at a speed ofsixtv  miles an hour.  King George has conferred the  Grand Cross of the Order of .the  Bath on Admiral John Jellicoe,  commander of the British hia'rie  fleet.  . '. ..  Prince Albert, son of King  George, who was operated , on  for appendicitis last September,  has been passed by .the meJical  board and has rejoined his'ship.  . . '���  King George' is setting an. example of economy in war time  M. Cedard, the head chef at  Buckingham Palace, has agreed  to accept a .so per cent., reduction in " his salary during the  war.   His salary was S6,2so   a  year.  ...  Ten thousand of the 2*i,ooo  cases of. salmon presented V  British Columbia to the Imperial government upon the request'  of the war office, have been  placed   at    the   disposal of the  forces.  ...  At a meeting held in Amsterdam recently of leaders of women's organizations in neutral  and belligerent states, it was  decided to call an international  women's congress at an early  date in a neutral state for the  purpose of discussing what role  women shall assume in prevent  ing future wars, encouraging international comity and promoting political liberation of thi  women of all countries.  The Servian army ha:S a  strength of 220,000 men, well  supplied with war materials nnd  food. One of the diplomats at  Nish, during the course a>( an  interview, said: "The lull in the  operations, after the failure of  the Austrian offensive iu Decern  ber, has given the Servian Government an opportunity to put  its force into good shape. I wiil  not say that the arihy i:i as  good todav as it was in Aa<r 11st  but it has greatly profited by  the    Check     to the Austrians.  se ven* week* ago."  . . .  It is reported that the Kaiser  is depressed as ihe result (.1 the  war situation and that he recently told members of his suite  that Germany must seek a way  to conclude peace. The despatch  declared the Kaiser expressed  himself as still hopeful of being  able to approach Russia through,  a small pro-German coterie- at  the Russian court. The correspondent says Germany would  abandon Austria if by doiug so  she could   make a   satisfactory  peace for nerself.  ...  British Columbia mills are  now tendering on one of the  largest lumber contracts opened  for world-wide coinpetiti in,  Through the British Government, the Chamber of Deputies  of France is asking for a supi>  of ,"ioo,ooo,ooo feet of lumber to  be used in construction of 100,-  000 two-roomed houses. These  small homes are to house that  section of France's .population  which has   lost its all through  the ravages of war.  ...  Sir Frederick Treves, probably the most eminent suigpou in  Britain, is authority for ,he  statement that-in the British  expeditionary forces there nave  been only 212 cases of typhoid  since the y*r began. Of these  cases 172 were among soldiers  who had not been inoculated  with "the anti-tvphoid serum,  and not one of the 22 deaths  from typhoid was in the case of  an inoculated man. These remarkable results are, in Sir  Frederick Treves' opinion, "positively astonishing."  ...  Among the many war stories  going the rounds of the press is  the following: "A voting British officer in charge of a remote  station in South Africa received  from his superior officer at the  base some time in August tins  message: 'War has been declared. Arrest all enemy aliens m  vour distript.'" Promptly the  superior oflicer received this reply: 'Have arrested* seven Germans, four Russians, five ltof-  ians, two Frenchmen, two Roumanians and an American.

The Kaiser's Conscience  die  Bowling  This week shows considerable  change in the standing of the  clubs in the Dreamland Bowling  League. The Pastimes are still  in firct place and this week took  a firmer grip on that position  bv defeating the Beavers three  straight. The Dreamlands turned the same trick on the Shiners and pulled themselves up on  even terms with the Beavers for  second place while the Shiners  dropped into a tie ."with tbe  Shamrocks, two games aheah  of the Bears-who bring up the  tail end.  The scores this week are not  up the usual standard as nearly  all have struck a slight slump  and only a few have held or  raised their averages.  Following are.the games this  week:  The Bears took the Shamrocks into camp two games out  of three on Mondav night as  follows:  BEARS  Dowsley .  Willits . ,  West . . .  Spare . .

For the first time in two hundred years the British government invited the House of Commons to give it a blank cheque  for army purposes.  In order to replace the ievenues lost through the Kur<>pean  war, the Panama eovennneiit  has introduced in the national  assembly a bill providing for a  stamp tax on tobacco, at|uo::>,  cigars, cigarettes, checks and  documents of all kinds. The bill  places a tax of11 cent a word on  all commercial cable messages  sent and received, ,i-i>1 m,-half  a cent on all personal messages.  The bill also provides for twvert  penalties for failure to com.w  with the law, allowing half t'e  fine to the informant. It is  proposed to raise $250,000 by  this means, and also to tax all  prize winning lottery tickets.  By winning all three j*��uni s  from, the Beavers the Pastimes  increased their lead in the race  for the pennant.

As thU will  prove of considerable interest to  the relatives and members of  this society resident in Kelowna  we give the scli li. it/ for  their benefit.  "At a meeting of the Supreme  Lodge, a rerolution was passed  that the supreme executive coun  cil insure the lives of all volunteer members for fi,00 and  that the cost of same be raised  bv an extra per capita tax on  all members. Some of the richest insurance companies in the  world were approached to write  this up, but none of these companies would accept the risk  However, not to be beaten in  their desire to carrv their resolution into effect the executive  council decided to lew their  members Si.00 per head, thus  taking care of the business 1 lief I  selves.  It may be interesting to know  that 1000 Sons of England mein  bers go to make up the complement of the first Canadian contingent, and that the .society is  weil represented in the other  contingents that have not yet  left for the front. These figures  will give the reader some idea  of the magnitude of the undertaking, and ;in impression of the  'spirit' of the members af the  society, who recognizing that  the volunteers are sacrificing  eperything, realize that they  must do their rhare in protecting, as we,l as they .ire able,  the interests thev leave behind  them. It is the expression cf  thie spirit which makes things  worth while, and welds into a  closer communion the whole  realm of humanity.  "As one of the subordinate  lodges, working under the executive supreme council" said a  prominent member of ���-be Kelowna lodge, "we endorse '.o the  fullest their action in this matter, gratified beyond measure to  see them rise to such 'in r-u*a-  sion, and when neace has once  more dawned ok the old world.  and the shock of battle has passed awav, and when the lists of  those who have passed awav in  conflict arc being read, we shall  know that we have at least done  what wc could, and justified our  existence as a* fraternal, benefit  and providential organization."  ��� 659. 759 675-2094  DREAMLANDS  Davenport .    143   179 149-  J.McMillan . 109   123 110-  A.

What is believed to be a valuable gold discovery has been  made close to the shore of the  Arrow Lakes some miles fcioulh  of Arrowhead by Mrs. Reid, thc  wife of W. R. Reid, the well  known merchant of Arrowhead.  From one handful of gravel Mr.  Reid has extracted seven gold  nuggets, ranging in size from  that of a pea downwards, as  well as pieces of quartz. In thc  neighborhood from which the  gravel was obtained, white  quartz with indications of copper and iron is olainlv to be  seen. Mr. Reid and associates  have already staked ,1 rumber  of claims in the vicinity ot the  discovery and samples of quartz  have been sent to the coast for  analysis.

Pain is felt in the  foot or knee, and sometimes in tha hip, which  makes walking painful. After much experimenting, we have produced in our NATUR-ARCH  She a perfect Arch Support, which keeps the  Scaphoid Bone in its proper place, and, supplies  a remedy for this common ailment.  HARrT'S CUSHION SOLE SHOE (Patent  Applied For) ia far superior toany other Cushion  Sole Shoe. - I he sock lining is wetted in all  around, which prevents any space between the  cushion sole and the upper to pinch the foot, as  is the case in other cushion sole shoes. Our  cushion sole felt is of pure lamb's wool, from  selected jtock and properly blended. It will retain its elasticity, and will not roll up, mat down  or separate.   We have proved it by actual teats.  CARE OF SHOES AND LEATHERS;-  Don't let your bootblack use polish that dries  with a gloss. Such polishes are full of acid,  turpentine and shellac. It hardens the fibre so  that the leather breaks in a short time. Proper  polish softens and preserves the leather.  The constant use of shoe trees will keep year  foe twear in good shape. Thty also prolong the  life of shiny leather footwear.  Patent leather shoes require thorough warming  before being worn.   It prevents cracking.  Keep at least two pairs of shoes, and change  frequently���it prolongs their life.  When your shoes are damp or wet, do not  put them near the heat���it will rot and crack  them quicker than anything else.  FITTING OF SHOES:-  Be sure your shoes fit comfortably. Insist on  being fitted tq_a shoe that ia plenty long. A shoe  too short is responsible for crooked toes, enlm ged  joints, corns and bunions, and also causes then  to break at the tip.
