 \CjstoXBxaify\  Uttavh  VOL. VIII.   NO. 20.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY. APRIL 6, 1916.���6 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Want Wholesalers9  Trade License Reduced  Deputation Wait on Council  . at Friday's Meeting  Iho counoil held its regular meeting  Friday morning last. The session was  brief there beiag very little business to  tronSttOt.  There were several items of correspondence- read, amongst whioh woe a  notice from Messrs. Heggie and De-  Dock, that they had been instructed by  the Canadian Northern Kail way Company to take notion against the city  to set aside the sale of their properties for taxes, and for a declaration  that the said properties ore exempt  from taxes. "  Ur. Arthur Raymer wrote stating  that owing to the scarcity of men  he would be unable to fulfil his contract for supplying itho city with  wood.  Mr. L. Uayes requested the city to  do something towards improving the  condition ol Cadder avenue opposite  his residence. This was referred to  the Publin Works committee.  Dr. H. L. A.-Kellor submitted an  offer to sell to the city his proporty  at the northwest corner of Bernard  avenue and 1'endozi street. The council however instructed the clerk to re  ply that they regretted not (being: able  to consider the offer.  A deputation from the wholesale  fruit and produce merchants, uonatst-  ing of Messrs. G. A. Chick, L. Hayes,  11. McDonald and (j. Howclill'o waited  on the council to ask for a riduotion  in the fee levied for their trado licenses  which now stood at 850 per annum.  They contended that this amount  was excessive and in support of this  they submitted letters from the clerks  oi various municipalities, showing the  various fees collected lor a wholesale  or a wholesale and retail license. Tne  examples given were Vernon, Kamloops  Grand Forks and Nelson, each $10  per annum; i'enticton and Cranbrook,  120 per annum. Ih the city of Armstrong no license was required, and in  Creston fruit and produce concerns  were alaseed as retailers, and a fee-  1 of IB per annum charged. '  Alderman Sutherland as chuhman of  the Finance committee pointed out the  difficult position in which the council  were placed at present. People were  asking for reductions of all kinds, and J  at the Borne time the revenue of the  city was falling off.  It WgS decided, however, to give the  request , consideration, and it was  referred to the Finance committee.  A formal resolution was passed that  the assessor be instructed to commence the assessment roll of the city,  and sohool distriot for 1916 on the  3rd of April and that the roll be returned on Tuesday, June 20,  1!H0.  On behalf of the Park commission.  Alderman Harvey submitted the following estimate of expenditure for the  current year for the approval of the  council.  Caretaker's salary   1490.00  Cemetery maintenance and improvements      160.00  Seeds ...... v       15.00  Light      100.00  Feed        15.00  Contingencies .,.'.     230.00  Soldiers to Leave For  Kamloops Morrow  Entertained at Farewell Dance  and Supper Tuesday Night  Quite a little flutter of excitement  has been raised in town this week  by tihe sudden announcement that the  local company of the 172nd were to be  removed at once to Kamloops. Word  was received Monday and the time  given for the departure was Wednesday  morning. Preparations were at...onco  made, and pn Tuesday the men were  given leave to wind up any little domestic affairs.  A hastily called meeting of the bnsi-  j ness men was held in the council chamber Monday to make arrangements for  some kind of a farewell event, tt was  hoped that-the departure of the boyB  might by some means be postponed to  the week-end. Time would" thus be  given for the getting up of a supper  concert and dance, and commi t  were appointed to see to ihis. On  oommunioatin^ with headquarters,-however, it was learned that the time of  departure': could not be altered but  that the men must be ready to leave  Wednesday morning. It was decided  then,- owing to the short time given  to limit the farewell to a dance and  in    Morrison's Hall Tuesday  I supper  night.    Jsx^BB^BB^BB^BB^BB^BTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaBTaBTaBl  Late on Tuesday, hotvever, word  was received by wire that owing -to  j transportation difficulties the rom-  ipany would not leave after all . u .ti!  .Friday morn'ng. This threw arrango-  ! merits into some confusion-, especially  ,for the unmarried mm occupying   the  three barracks, as these had been   dis-  I mantled and dosed up, and biHets had  i to be found for many of them for tho  night.  The farewell dance was carried, .put  .ns arrunged,'and proved to be a big  ! success. The ladies of the city put up  a splendid feed, abd there was a bi^  turnout. Mr-.'.H. Todd Boyd and Mi.  Drurv Pryce took upon themselves the  musical arrangements and certainly  deserve the heartiest thanks.  So that today the bovs are spending  the last day in Kel���wn�� and will leave  by tomorrow morning's boat. So far  'j as is known they will go first to Kam-  iloops where tho complete battaHon wi'l  be organized und put into shape, returning later to thc training oamp at  Vernon.  NeedleBs to sav there will be a great  turn out tomorrow and by all accounts the boys are to be given a  great send off.  ���1000.00  The estimates which it was pointed  out were just half thoso of last year  wore adopted without dlscassion.  The clerk was instructed to obtain  prices for a new flog for the "oily  and to submit the same to the Cornell at the next regular meeting.  The following accounts were submitted for payment:  Kelowna Sawmill Co. supplies  $46.60  D. D. Cgmpbell, supplies        1.20  A. G. McGregor, power house  work          16.00  A. 0.

BIQ.M  The War as a Test  The Equal Franohi*e League diseased "The War as a Test" on Thursday,  the subject being set forth by Mr. J.  L. Maoready in an opening speech.  Mr. Maoready sketched the situation  of the old country when war wo* declared, which, he pointed out was one  of unpreparednesB except ns regards  the fleet, the only military burden  anticipated being the sending of a  small army to tho continent. The  situation had to be mot by the government assuming control on a scale  unprecedented in Great Britain, of  numerous large concerns, of which tho  railway service, for oonveying toldiers  and munitions, was the most important. Similarly merchant ships were  rented as troopships. Contracts for  shipbuilding were taken over by the  nation whether they had been intended for private companies or were battleships for,other nations. Even the  Australian wool trade was controlled,  and export to non-British countries  stopped.       ...  Some great inequalities have come  out as a rojsult. of tho stress. The  private soldier receives one shilling and  sixpence per day only, besides hie food  and clothes; the munition worker, under much safer conditions, reoeives  sixteen, shillings per- day.  The oriBis has effected some good.  Women are receiving equal pay for  equal work, ���nd this may be permanent. The evils of competition are  being found out. But if the nation  had been already organized on -ft social  basis, national aetion would have been  more effective.   0   No little interest at present oentres  on Holland where it is said considerable military- activity is in evidence.  The Dutch are stated to have fully  mobilized their troops and massed  them along ehe Gorman frontier with  what object, is not quite dear.  Mayor Jones' Candidature  is  Record Attendance at Annual Conservative Meeting oh Friday  H any proof wero needed that ihe  candidature of Mayor Jones as representative in the provincial House fox  this constituency of Southern Okanagan is fully endorsed by the majority of  citizens and business men of the district it was surely furnished by the  annual meeting last Friday evening of  the kelownd Conservative association.  'J'ho meeting was possioly the largest  ever held in the history of the association, and judging by the enthusiasm  prevailing, and the practical unanimity with which the various resolutions were upheld .any linger nj doubt  that Mayor Jones, aside from party  considerations is" the man to best  serve the interests of both farmers and  citizens is being rapidly dispelled.  It'was a happy thought that the  meeting should take the form of u  supper and through the ready j co-operation of the ladies of the district a  generous spread of good things was  provided, and needless to say done  full justice to by the crowd of well  on toward two hundred men who eat  down to the tables. Representatives  ware present from every district within a considerable radius of Kelowna.  Pianoforte and vocal solos further added to the pleasure of the evening. >  Election of Officers  As soon as the guests had fully satisfied the needs of the inner man,  chairs were pushed baok fr0m the tables and the essential business of the  evening, which consisted of the election of oncers for another year was  proceeded with. Mayor, J ones retiring  president in the chair. The officers  elected were as follows: v*  Patrons Sir. K. L. Bordon, the  Hon- W. J. Bowser and the Hon. Martin Burrell. "    s  Mr. W. H. Raymer was re-elected as  Hon.-president, the chairman making  Sympathetic reference to his continued  serious illness. Mr. Raymer, he said  had been one of Kelowna's most valued citizens, having filled almost every ��� important office in the city, and  tilled it well. Mention was also made  of the removal by death of Mr. W. R.  Pooley.a valuable member of the executive.  Mr. R. A. Copeland received unanimous election as president and took  his place in the chair a midst applause.  He thanked the members in a brief  speech and expressed his pleasure at  occupying the position especially in  view of the candidature of his friend,  Mr. J. W. J0nfes.

Atkin. ..    ...  Bear Creek.���Messrs .T. H. Kitson,  J. T. Campbell, H. C. ChikW  The first resolution considered was  one of oonfidenee in the Premier, Sir.  R. L. Borden, and tho Dominion government, including tha Hon. Martin  Burrell, minister of agriculture and  member for the district. This was  proposed by Mr. E, M. Catmthers who  spoke of thu excellent record of the  present government and the sphmdid  work done by thorn in the present  great crisis. i lu- resolution was seconded by Mr. J, F. fturne, who said  that every credit was due to Sir Robert Borden and his colleagues for placing Canada in tho very forefront of  tho war, and showing the world that  Canada had a right to take a leading  Part amongst tho various sections oi  the empire. Sir. Robert Borden had  had a hard tnsk before him, for this  was the first time Canada had been  oalled upon to lane list P��a��e as a full  grown chj.ld of Britain.  I Mr, E. C. Weddell proposed tlje following: "'that we place on record our  j profound gratification that the many  and base charges of graft and mal-ad-  ! ministration so frequently levelled  against our former premier, Sir Richard  Mdiridel and against our present premier, the Hon. W. J. Bowser, and his  administration     are now proving    to  ' have been so utterly unfounded in fact  and that we express 0ur unbounded  confidence in the integrity and ability  of the Hon. W. J. Bowser and his administration to carry on the, government of this province in the best interests of the whole province and its  people." ...  Mr. Weddell said that events were  proving that the election of the two  Liberals . at the coast was the best  possible thing which could have happened > to the government. These men  had been Bent with a mandate from  the electors to search out evidence and  if possible to substantiate the charges  so wildly made against the government, i So far the result oi their investigations had been practically nil.  And we, might be sure they were leaving |iio stone unturned to dig out any  possible scandal. Premier Bowser had  offered them every possible facility to  find out what thoy could.  Mr. Thos. Bulman seconded the resolution in a vigorous speech in which  he defended the character of Premier  Bowser, who, in spite of the attacks  of his opponents, 'who wore now floundering about in the sea of their own  insinuations, had stood f0r integrity  and clean government. He admitted  that he was something of an autocrat  as many of the world's great legislators had been, before him, but said Mr.  Bulman, would, we had more such men  who oould put on the statute books  such legislation as the government  now stood for.  Reaffirm Candidature of Mayor  Jones  The most popular resolution, bow-  ever, was the following: "That this  annual meeting of the Conservative  Association of Kelowna anf- distriot  hereby expresses its complete confidence in Mayor J.-W. Jones as our  candidate for the oondtituenoy of  South Okanagan, believing that his  experience in municipal affairs, and  his knowledge of our pressing problems will be of great benefit to this  constituency. We hereby pledge our  loyal support in such a manner a* will  place him at tho head 0f the poll with  a good majority."  The resolution was. received with enthusiastic applause, and was endorsed  by a standing vote, only one persom in  the large assembly being observed l>t0  keep his seat.  Mr. Leslie Dilworth, who was the  mover of the resolution, said that as  a farmer and as a citizen he had  every confidence in supporting Mayor  Jones as n candidate. Ever ��ince he  had known him he had been one 0f  the leading men of the district, Cand  always foremost in any movement of  interest to *the, farmer, as well a* of  the oity. He had taken a deep interest in such public questions as fruit  marketingl irrigation, schools, and  roads, End was just as much concern  ed with what wus needed by Liberals  as by Conservatives. HSb work on  the Oity council and his identity with  the Board of Trade, the Creamery,  and .all other farmers' organizations,  were evidence,of bis desire,to ttyUtin  promoting the welfare of the people  of the district. He hftd had a great  deal to do with redistribution, vhioh  Asst. Horticulturist Hoy  Moves to Kelowna  Changes Announced in Fruit  Inspection Work  The work carried on formerly by the  late Mr. Thomas Cunningham as provincial fruit pests inspector at Vancouver, has now been divided, according  to an announcement made by Mr. W.  E. Scott, deputy minister of agriculture. Mr. R. M. Winslow, provincial  horticulturalist, has taken the field  work of the fruit pests branch under  his direct charge and becomes chief  fruit pests inspector. He will have  control of all orchard and field pests  inspection work in the province, being  in charge of the entire work of the  pests branch where it relates to home  production.  Mr. W. H. Lynn, up to the present  assistant fruit pests inspector, has  been gazetted inspector of imported  fruit and nursery stock. His jurisdiction will be in regard to the administration of the provincial fumigation  and inspection station at Vancouver  and as already announced, he will also  carry out the provisions of tho Dominion Injurious Insects and Pests  Act, having been appointed by the  Dominion department of agriculture to  succeed Mr. i Cunningham, the Dominion government work in British  Columbia in that resrieot being attended to by the provincial official. Mr.  I.yne will also have direction over the  inspection of imported fruits, vegetables, grains, etc. at all ports of entry into the,province. He will be directly under Deputy Minister Scott;  Provincial Horticulsuriat Winslow  has already taken charge of the pests  inspection work for-the lower mainland potatoes, and Mr. It. C. Abbott,  coast markets commissioner is under  Mr.'Winslow, now administering, in  charge of the inspection of all' potato  shipments from the lower mainland to  points outside of the province as well  as local shipments. Mr. Winslow  has stated that it was the intention  of the provincial authorities to Bet  such a high standard for British Columbia potatoes under government certificates that Australian and American importers would not feel any necessity to come to British Columbia  to examine large shipments which they  might purchase, but would feel safe in  accepting any potatoes having a government inspection certificate.  In eonnectron with the rearrange  ment of the work of the fruit pests  field inspection. Provincial Horticul-  tarist Winslow has arranged to have  tho assistant horticulturist of the various British Columbia fruit districts  take over the control ol horticultural  inspection and ulso the fruit pests -control work. The fruit pests inspectors  will be placed under the direction of  the assistant horticulturists. ...  The territory of Mr. P. E. French,  horticulturist at Salmon Acm, has  been extended to include Vernon and  other points in the northern Okanagan and in future Mr. French will  have his headquarters at Vernon. Mr.  Ben Hoy, horticulturist for the Okanagan, is moving his head(i,uartevB from  Vomon to Kelowna and in future will  direct the horticultural and pests inspection work from Kelowna south  into the Similkameen.  Tho provincial department of agriculture is putting up a strong fight  against the inroads of the codling  moth in northern Okan-igxn and now  has four big power sprayers ot West-  bank, across the Okanagan Lake from  Kelowna, with three more power machines at Vernon.... Mr. Winslow stated recently that it was hoped to buck  the codling moth this season to the  point of extermination. Much of the  infection comes from foreign fruit Oars  entering Canada anl then getting to  tho fruit diarists for the loading 0f  British Columbia fruit.  (Continued on Pftcn* B.)

The members of the Masonic lodge  will meet Saturday at 1.30 o'clock in  the lodge room for the purpose o* (attending the funeral of the Into H. W.  Raymer.  The*funeral took place this morning  at 10 o'clook of Anna Patricia, the  infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs H. B.  Burtoh. Much sympathy is felt with  the bereaved parents in the loss of  their little girl, who died Tuesday "in  the hospital of pneumonia,  Alderman W. H. Raymer  Passes Away  Great Loss to City and District  ���Was Kelowna's First Mayor  In the death of Alderman II. W. Raymer, which took place this morning  shortly befQre 8 o'clock, after n lingering illness, Kelowna loses one of its  most highly respected and useful citizens. Ever sinoe his coming to Kcl.  owna some twenty-three years ago, for  he was one of the city's old-timers, ho  has been active in all public affairs,  und at one time or another has held  almost every important office in the  city. To his enterprise and public-  spiritedness can* be directly traced  many of the privileges which the city  now enjoys. It is characteristic of  the man that death finds him still in  harness as a member of the city council.  Though failing in health for the past  year or two, his strong constitution  has enabled him to fight off recurring  attacks of sickness. Some seven or  eight weeks ago, however ho caught a  chill which br0ught on a severe ' attack of asthma. Other complications  arose, and little Hope was entertained  of his recovery.  Deceased was bom in 1853 at Wal-  singham, Norfolk County, Ontario, but  his boyhood and school days were pas-  Red in the town of Woodstock. As a  young man he went to Shoal Lake,  Manitoba, where he engaged in Contracting, and farming, and later moved to Lethbridge, coming to Kelowna  in 1802, or perhaps one should Bay to  whore - Kelowns subsequently was, and  as a contractor haB since been responsible for the erection of most of the  important buildings. The Agricultural Association found in him one of  its most enthusiastic supporters, and  he has filled the position of president  on several occasions. He has .also  been president of the Farmers' Institute and other organizations.  When .Kelowna wgs incorporated as  a city some ten years ago he was tho  first to be elected mayor and he has  sat on the city council for several  terms. He has been a Justice of  Peace for many years end haa served  on the License Board and as a Police  Commissioner, He has always been  an ardent supporter oi the Conservative cause, though in 1900 he ran unsuccessfully as a candidate for East  Yale as an independent. Only a few  days ago he was re-oleoted honorary  president of the Kelowna Conservative AsBOciatiun. He was a member of the Masonic fraternity, as well  as a prominent figure in the local  Lodge of Knights of Pythias and  Woodmen of tho World.  And not only in its more serious un  dertakings has Kelowna been indebted  to Mr. Raymer, but also for its  amusements, for he it was -who  built the first Opera Hou��; later replaced by the present atniotnre.  Ho leaves a family of three sons and  six daughters, having heon married in  1��79 to Miss Mary Haliday of flalt.  Ont., who survives him. One of his  sons is now figh<in:jr in, tho trenches  and another is with the forces here.  It would take a long list indeed to  (million all the movements and local  enterprises with which Mr. Raymer has  boen identified during his long residence here, and by hosts of friends in  all parts of the valley he will be missed as few men are.  The funeral has been arranged for  Saturday afternoon nt 2 o'clock, service to lie held in tho Presbyterian  church.  Busy Week For Fire Brigade  There have been two alarms of fire  during the past week. The first was  last Thursday evening when the brigade was oalled to an outbreak of fire  m the oiVl livery barn on Leon avenue,  partly destroyed by fire a year ago.  TJhe place was empty and it is something of a mystery how it could have  caught again. The only result was a  little further damage to the roof ind  front part of the building.  The second alarm was last night  tha cause being a burning chimney on  the home of Mrs. Johnston, Sutherland avenue. The fire was out, when  tho brigade^ arrived.  MrB. J, 0. Switzer will receive for  the last time bef ���re leaving Kelowna  on Thursday afternoon, April 13th.

MAYOR JONES' CANDIDATURE  CONFIRMED AT ENTHUSIASTIC  CONSERVATIVE MEETING  (Continued from Pane  1.)  '  was    to give Kelowna more adequate  representation in the legislature.  Continuing* Mr. Dilworth said that  he would like to mako a suggestion,  and he Was doing so entirely on his  own initiative, and without prompting  from any quarter, that when the portfolio of finance and agriculture wus  divided, tho government could not do  better than hund the latter to Mayor  Jones (applause).  Mr. Jones, lie Baid, wus esteemed by  both opponent and friend, and was  not a hidc-bound party politician but  broad-minded enough to see the need  of every man.  Mr. Geo. Scholield, of Rutland, seconded. He said that ever since he  had come into the district it had always seemed to him that when any  movement was on foot for the benefit  of the district, Mayor Jones would be  in it. He had .made up hia mind that  if over n candidate was needed for tho  district, Mayor Jonee was the man  who should be sent to the legislature,  and he was going to do all in his power to put him there.  Mr.ff. 1). Wfllkor also testified to the  broad-minded attitude of Mayor -Jones  on all matters of public interest, and  also to his intensely imperialistic  sentiments, which wero especially noed-  in legislators just now. So far as his  own district was concerned they would  seud him by q large majority.  The audience signified its approval of  these remarks by prolonged cheering*  and the singing of "He's a jolly good  follow," which was continued as the  candidate rose to reply.  Candidate's Address  Mr. Jones said he would Hke first to  congratulate the Association* on the  large number present, and the evident  interest interest and enthusiasm displayed. Though it was just a year  since lie had been nominuted as candidate, it would seem that his supporters had not changed their minds, and  wero just as much interested as ever  hi the election of a member who was  prepared to do his best for the district no matter what party was elected to power. He was not, as had been  said, a hide-bound party politician.  He had always Ikhmi something 0f a  scrapper ever since his boyhood, and  if at any time he saw fit to dissent  from the loader of hifi party, he would  not hesitate to do bo. That his independence in this respect was .recognised was shown by the fact that  some two velars ftg0 he had been naked  by two of the leading Liberate of tha  district to run u�� an Independent Candidate.  He noticed that many of his audience were in Khaki, and he also remembered with regret that many of  his right-hand supporters wero now  fighting in the trenches. Nevertheless  he had alwuys wished them God-speed  though he had known it was weaken*  ing his chances of election. Ho wes  pleased to see that arrangements were  being mado to give the soldiers the  . franchise, and he was also glad to  note that the government was taking  steps to see that the mon would be  properly provided for on their return  to the province.  There have been ft great many rumors afloat during tho past .year ��nd  al) sorts of charges have been le'-oVd  at the government, and the question  has been raised no doubt in many roo-  pjtffl firf&cU aa to whether these charges' were really true or not. It was  necessary that some of these questions  should be looked into, in order to  (ieferoritie whether the government htfd  1 had been faithful to their trust and  whether they were worthy, of return or  not. He would endeavor to Bhow  that they were worthy of the confidence of the people.  When McBride was asked to form a  government in 11*03, three different  governments had gone out of power  in rapid succession. The affairs of  thc province were in a state of chaos,  and the .government had fcio credit  whatever. There was nn overdraft at  the bank of over n million dollars nnd  a debt of twelve millions. Thorn were  no roads for the convenience of settlers and trails were the only means  of communication. There were no  railways, nr proper wharves to ban He  tlie farmers' product-. Public w .rks  of any kind were practically ni>n-r\int  cut. This WaB an era of deficits and  and finances were in a state of chaos.  When McBride took hold of the government we notice that surpluses bogan  to be piled Up, Then caino n great  era of development. Settlers began  to pour into the country, and it w>q,s  necessary that the government should  cater for those settlers. Premier McBride determined that the surplus  should in* spent in roads, bridges, in  schools, otc. It was then the idea  of giving these settlers transportation  by means of railways, was evolved.  The speaker stated that he intended  at some future meeting to go more  fully into the question of railways and  lands, but he would like to point out  that we luul now three great transcontinental roads, the-C.P.R., G.T.P, and  tho C.N.R., besides the K.V.U., which  might almost be called Q f0urlh tir.ns-  continental. Three of them have been  built since the Conservative government came into power. Since that  another great railway, the I'.O.K.-had  boon built north from Vancouver tapping the great agricultural district of  tho Peaco River. Many of our own  local peaplehad takon;>up preemptions.  along this line and had been well pleas  ed with their choice.... He bad been  told by those from the Peace River  ���that there were millions of acres of  the choicest land there. 'lhe area  of land to bo served'by this railway is al  most as large as the province of New  Brunswick, and only a lew days ago  Mr. Bury, of the C.P.R., had slated  that then; would be millions of bush"  els of wheat shipped by this route in  the very near future and through the  Panama canal.  His opponents were continually burping back and criticising the railway  policy of Sir Richard McBride, although it had (jeeu submitted to the  people in 1909 and 1912. On the first  occasion on which it was submitted to  the people only one Liberal -was elected,, and the second time that Liberal  even was left at home. He understood that ithe Liberals were advocating the submitting of the railway policy by a referendum. But surely no  better referendum was needed than  that "not one opponent should be elected to the House.  As a business man und one interested in the district here, he would like  to remind his .hearers, how much  these railways mean t0 our Okanagan  valley. The Kettle Valley Railway  gave us an outlet through the Boundary district and the Crow's Nest  Pass and brought us within twelve  hours of the city of Vancouver, a  market for our fruit arid produce upon which we have a greater hold today than ever before. It was to  our interest to increase that hold. But  these railways also tapped our i;r  mineral and timber resources.  Speuking of tho great progress of  the province during the era ot the  Conservative regime he suid that the  agricultural products had increased  during the period 190.1 to 1915, from  six to thirty million dollars. Agricultural imports of products raised within tho province had boon reduced from  35 to 98 millions in J914 and last  year to sixteen millions. So it wo-ild  be seen that great progress was being  made in endeavoring to develop the  resources of the country by increasing  exports und decreasing imports.  Wo had been obliged to ship some  ton million tons of ore to the Unitod  States because we had no refineries in  this country. Development.1 in this  respect was ono of the policies at  present under consideration by the  government. Ho a180 referred tn lhe  groat dovol0pment of the pulp industry on the Powell River. Coming  nearer homo he drew attention In the  growth of the Okanagan fruit and  produce industry, which .last year had  reached a total of 3500 oars, of which  one-third was from the Kelowna district. And the fruit industry in the  Okanagan was only in its infancy. Wo  could scarcely form any idea of the  largo shipments which'would shortly  bo sint out. When Glenmore, the  Belgo, and Rutland and other neighborhoods were in full bearing, we  should be shipping from here in train  loads. m  SpcHkmg of tho financial position 0f  the province ho Btated that in 190ft  there Was a debt of twelve million <  with a population of 176,000 oi ?G0  per capita. Today the debt had been  mcrensed only 50 per cent or to $18,-  500,000, or $44 per capita. It aeemed  to him that we had not gove very far '  into debt during that period.    In the  [YEAST  aa  Okanagan alon\ thousands of dollars  had been spent on roads, and he believed that some day this would become one of the greatest tourist -resorts of the world.  Ho compared the debt of $18,500,000  with that of the other western provinces. Alberta, 826,2*4,000, St.skat-  chewan, $21,01)0,000. The municipal  debt of Vancouver city was S35 000,-  IMIO, or nearly twice that of the '.hole  province. Toronto had a debt of  875,000,000 andO Montreal ono of $00,-  ihh>,00i.. He merely'made these comparisons to show that the debt of IJ.  ('. was not so formidable ttfuor all,  especially when we thought of the  great resources and natural wealth of  the province. What were those re-  rources, which we had to place against  this debt of eighteen and a half millions. Our1,crown lands wore worth  at a conservative estimate ono hundred millions nf dollars. The government's interest in th3 t0wnsites of  Prince Rupert and i'ojfnt Grey are  estimated at fifteen millions; the government's interest in the timber of tho  province was worth 100 millions, and  there wore a large numl>er of payments on land due the government.  These facts would give his he irers  some idea of the resources behind the  debt of eighteen millions.  In speaking of the resources of the  province, continued Mayor Jones, be  Would like to refer to the agricultural  policy which was n ��w be'nj brought  down by the government, Some reference had been mada t,, the large extent of lajnd held by tho province.  There hail been charges made against  the government in connection with  these lands. It was npt long ago th.it  Mr. John Oliver was down hero, and  pointing to a map on th> wall, hiow-  mx the lands of tho province he had  fexolaimod "It is all gone, it is all  alienated."  He, the speaker know very well it  was not all gone. How much laud  has this province sold? There were  ninty-oiic million acres of crown lands  surveyed and reserved in this province  for the seittler. There were nin teen  million acres of agricultural lands surveyed��� 29 million acres of agricultural  coal and limber lands surveyed. There  wero 2,292,000 acres waiting the settler today. The government of B.C.,  had crown granted and sold* outright  two million acres and there were 2,-  700,000 acres under agreement of sale.  Tho government are bringing down a  bill giving six months in which to Pay  arrears, and in this are acting perfectly fair ad squar0 with the men who  made the first payment on tho lands.  They grant them,land to tho value of  the money they havo paid, but will  take back the portion for which they  can not pay. All this land reverting  to the government will be held in reserve for the returning soldiers. (Applause).  Mayor Jones next dealt in some detail with the Agricultural Credits Act,  which had been adopted by the government as the, result 0f the investigations of an agricultural commission  which had visited all parts of the  province and also several oth<>r countries where similar legislation bad bejen  in force. The bill had. been brought  down last year but owing to financial  conditions  it   had  been   impossible    to  put it Immediately in operation-   He  was pleased to know that the (government had the other day succeeded in  placing, the firs, loan of a million dollars n> the low rate of 5.63 per cent.,  which was the lowest rate at which  money had been borrowed lor some  time, which went to prove bhatfl the  credit hA the province was not in the  ruinous condition the opposition would  have US believe.  In this connection he said, that while  the government hud been rude:, .-oring  to face its obligation^, Mr. Brewster  had been going around preacWng blue  ruin. What-did they think of a leader of a party which hoped to bo returned to power going east ami knocking  tht: province as he had  dono?  He read an extract from a recent issue of tho "Sun" headed "Political  Leprosy," in which it was stated that  "the population were going1 back stripped of all that thoy brought here,  snared by our fan?y financial traps  protected and advertised by t'he government ... If British Columbia  wore a valley of leprotty it could nol  be shunned more religiously than it is  today by the settlors who over moved  westward Wo invite them ...to  come on tho penalty of starving  them."  "What did they think of a  party    or  leader who  would publish    such  stuff  that?

Refer to ourcolumnt  for the best local breeders  voting to make good; what could we  think of men who would preacfe such  a doctrino ft8 that? (Cries ol  "fahatnel")  Continuing the* subject ot finances,  Mayor Jones said the country had  btitin passing through a period of great  financial depression, which had been  rendered still more acute by the outbreak of war. There had been many  oaueee contributing to this deprtwslon,  chiol amongst whioh had boun the  undue credit given to anyone who  asked for it, and the exploitation of  real estate, notably in the coast cities  whioh had led to a neglect <rf any real  development ot our agricultural and  other resources, '[here had been a  lack of desire to go on to the land,  people preferring get-rich-quick schemes  'Ihen came the stoppage of the flow  of capital from the old country which  had placed us in the position we were  now in. He did not know however  that conditions here were any worse  than in other Pacific coast cities. He  understood that at the present tinu  there were something like five miles  of empty houses in the oity of Spo-;  kane, Wash., aud other cities further  south were.in similar condition. All  things -considered, we had come  through pretty well. -  I But now we had the will, we had  no capital to develope our resources,  and it was jufet here that ihe value oi  the Agricultural Credits Act came in.  In five or six weeks the government  would have a sum of one million dollars available for loaning to fanners  of the province to be followed by further sums shortly. The loaning of  this money would be in the hands of  an independent commission who would  be composed of men outside the range  of party politics.  ...Mr. Jones went at some length into  the regulations contained in the Act  under which loans would be made on  the security of farm lands for certain  purposes, which included1 improvement",  erection of buildings and purchase of  equipment and live stock. The period  of the loans would range from one to  thirty years, on easy terms of repayment. The minimum loan would be  $250 and the maximum $10,000, and  no advances would be made to companies' for speculative purposes, a  .very important point.  ���������We hatl to look to other countries  to see what this policy of farm credits  had done towards the building up oi  the agricultural industry and the development of rural life. The effects,  wherever it had been in operation were  remarkable. lhe most notable case  waa that of New tZealand, upon whoso  system the B. C, Act was based. In  New Zealand during the fifteen years  preceding the system, domestic exports  had increased only 35 per cent.G During the fifteen years following the introduction of the loan system the increase had been 101 per cent, while  bank deposits had increased from 53  to 207 millions.  We all had realized lately how difficult it was to borrow money on farm  property from private companies, in  fact it was almost impossible to get  farm loans. Under this Aot we would  have a friendly loaning company  which had just as much interest in the  welfare of the oountry as we had. Not  one which would want to foreclose at  a moment's notice but one which had  our interests at heart. The Agricultural Credits Aot was admitted, by all  to bo' one of tho greatest items* of policy any government ever conceived and  \t had come at u most opportune time  when farmers everywhere wero seeking  aid in the development of their properties. In fact said, Mr. Jones,  amid laughter, he had already had  several Liberals' asking him when the  money would be available.  There was another important local  question, said the speaker whioh he  would like to refer to, and we did so  not because of his interest in land in  thedistriot but because it was a matter which vitally concerned not only  farmers but every citizen and business  man. Most people were aware of the  position in which present conditions  had placed the irrigation companies of  the district and fears bad been entertained lest the system owned by them  might fall down through some unforeseen difficulty and not be operated.  Such a contingency would mean tne  ruin of both town and country. A  few' weeks ago he had been on'- ol ' a  deputation which had been down to  Victoria to interview the government  and get them to stand behind! ihe  systems in case of accident and prevent tlie farmers and settlers from suffering. He was pleased to say. that  they had been very well received and  had been promised such assistance if  it became neoesaary, pending definite  legislatfo-n in regard to irrigation matters. Them had been no thought 0[  political or' other gain in the interview, in epite of insinuations to the  contrary whioh had been thrown Out  by his opponent. In faot in a recent  speech he had made the whole situation bad been bJowM.    Tbe dqnrU^  tion had not asked the government to  guarantee, the bonds of the companies  but only to stand behind the systems  in case the' companies were unable to  repair any breakdown which might occur.  Mr. Rogers had refused to make any  statement as to any scheme he might  have to overcome the difficulty. He  had said he was unable to get any  information as to irrigation conditions in the district, and yet he bed  lived here for a number of years. ��� In  fact he had treated the matter altogether too lightly considering that it  was one of such serious concern. His  party, he said, had no knowledge of  the position of the irrigation companies, and would have to wait until the  government expert submitted his report.  "What in the policy of the Liberal  party which is seeking your suffrages?"  asked Mr. .lones. (A voice��� "knocking!") They had never submitted uny  policy, but had tried to dig up scun-  dal after scandal, nnd as yet has been  unable to prove any of them. Their  various insinuations had shured the  fate of the scandal which had been  worked up regarding the. submarine  deal. When Sir Richard McBride had  returned from England he had demanded an investigation, wh'ioh had  resulted in his being absolutely cleared. They had called this "the most  corrupt government in Canada," and  yet although the House had been sitting for six weeks thoy had proved  nothing and could not prove any-.  thing. Premier Bowser had defied  them to prove any of their accusations'  and had given them access to every  book and document and promised them  every assistance in their /investigiations.  "Unless the opposition can bring  forward a policy that is going to surpass that of the leader of the govern-  ernment they are not worthy of the  suffrage of the people of B. 0. That  policy has not been submitted in any  statement made by the leaders of the  Liberal party and in any speeches  made by my opponent. We clftim  that he has not touched one of the  problems that affect the welfare of the  district."  Concluding Mayors Jones .aid: "You  know mo well, you know my interests  in this district. Remember my interests are yours, .and I-am prepared to  fight tooth and nail for the interests  of South Okanagan. 1 am determined to do my utmost to bring prosperity to this district. Lam prepared  to stand out and fight until we get  this irrigation question absolutely settled. I want to give the farmers ev  ery assistance that I possibly can in  the problems that are affecting them.  You know my activities in connection  with the public affairs of the city aud  district, and the issue gentlemen, I  have to leave in your hands."  Mayor Jones resumed hie seat amid  loud applause, having very evidently  created a deep impression upon his  audience. $  Votes of thanks were passed to the  ladies who had provided the supper  and to all who had assisted, and the  meeting dispersed with the singing of  the national anthem.  LOCAL EVANGELIST LEAVES  FOR THE COAST  Evangelist E. E. Potter left yesterday forV oncouver where he has been  called by the British Columbia confer-  once of Seventh-day Adventists to  have charge of the temperance department ot the church work.  For a . number of years Mr. Potter  has taken an active interest in this  line of work and at their last conference ho introduced the following resolution which was heartily and unanimously passed:  "Whereas the fundamental principles  of the Seventh-day Advontist denomination oall for an unoompromising  stand in favor of temperance, and  whereas intemperance is one of the  great causes hindering the work of  God in the hearts of men, and whereas a very large percentage of th* suffering of mankind is directly traceable  to intemperance, and whereas tbe  cause of temperanoe is one of tho present day issues in our good province:  therefore be it resolved that as delegates of the Seventh-day Adventist  churches of B.C. assembled in annual  oonferenoe, we reaffirm our desire to  cooperate with evory oonsitient effort  in our province for total prohibition  by voice and pen and vote, and by the  widest possible disse ination.of temperance literature."
