 drttma &tt&vh  .  / ^'IsmWE   VOL. X.   NO. 28  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, MAY 30, 1918.���4 PAGES  (I.SO Per Annum  CM Dispute Will  Soon Be Settled  According to an announcement  made at the regular|meeting of the  council Monday, it seems likely  ' that the long-standing dispute of  the city with the Canadian Northern Railway Co. over tazea due on  property owned by them within  the municipality, ia at last to be  brought to an end in a manner  quite satisfactory to the city. By  a payment of $3,097.29. which the  company is now prepared to make  on the Brat of June, the lands formerly held by the company and  sold by the city at its 1915 tax  sale, will be redeemed and the  title once more cleared. This sum  represents the final payment of a  total of over $9,000 which haa  been paid over to the city on  account of these lands.  The tedious litigation which  started some four vears ago,arose  through an indefinite provision in  ���the provincial act whereby the  company claimed exemption of all  lands owned by them in the city.  As only a amall portion of the  area owned bv the com -any in  Kelowna is actually included in  the right of way the city, in common with other places where the  same difficulty had arisen, disputed the claim, and as events have  turned qut the decisions of the  courts have upheld the view that  only lands actually held for trackage should be exempt.  There was the usual batch of  Correspondence to deal with, including a letter from the Amateur  Athletic Club thanking the council  for the assistance given in fixing  up the grounds in the park for  their various gaii.es.  An offer of $70 from T. S. Cornell for Lot 30, Plan 1246, was  accepted subject to the proviso  that the original owners did not  wish to redeem it by pavment of  all liabilities to the city. An offer  from P. E. Campbell for Lot 8,  Plan 578, of $275 was also accepted on the aame conditions.  A. E. Nash, driver of the fire  trucks and caretaker of the fire  hall, tendered his resignation in  person he having secured a position in Vancouver. He asked to  be released on the first ot June,  The resignation was accepted with  regret and arrangements made to  advertise for a successor.  The Public Works committee  was authorized to carry out certain  improvements to Long street and  that a water connection be made  to the residence of Mr. Drury  Pryce on that street provided he  supply the necessary pipe and pay  half the connection coat.  It was alao arranged to comply  with the application of Miss M,  Blain tor a water connection to Lot  13 on Rowcliffe avenue.  Aid. Duggan on behalf of die  Light and Water committee, reported the resignation of F. Freeman aa stoker at the power house,  and the appointment of J. Symonds  a returned soldier, to fill the vacancy was endorsed by the council.  The council also authorized the  granting of the usual two weeks  holiday to permanent employees,  arrangements to be made bv the  heads of the various departments,  fn view of the question raised  as to the jurisdiction if the Parks  committee over the street boulevards, it was decided that the  name of the committee be changed  to the Parks and Boulevards committee and that this committee be  given control of the park, boulevards and cemetery.  The Street Watering By-law was  finally passed also a by-law for a  temporary loan from the bank.  It was arranged that standing  committees should submit at the  next meeting the estimates of  revenue .and {expenditure of their  several departments for the current  year.  Athletic Club Makes  Good Use of Holiday  The baseball boya had a fine trip  down to Summerland on the Friday  holiday, when they n et a combined  team of Summerland and Peachland boys. It was a gocd fast yet  friendly game throughout and considering it was their first appearance together the boys down the  lake put up a good fight. They  were beaten by Kelowna, however,  15 to 6. The Kelowna lineup was  G. Cady catcher, N. DeHart pitcher, F. Faulkner first base, J. Thayer  seCond base, M. Berard third base,  J. Calder short stop, L. Day centre,  C. Gaddes I ft and J. Brunette  right.  After the game a number of the  boys went on to Penticton to take  in a dance there, while the rest returned home by cara the same  evening.      ,  The team is now mourning the  loss of one of its best members in  the person of Jack Thayer, who has  been transferred by his bank to  Alberta. Jack was an energetic  supporter of the club and its treasurer too, and his loss is to be regretted.  A return game at Kelowna from  the Summerland-Peachland boys is  expected soon. In the meantime  the team is to visit Vernon on  Monday where a programme of  sports is being arranged for the  King's birthday. Teams-from Kamloops, Enderby, Vernon and Kelowna will all be competing there  on that day. The lacrosse boys are  also scheduled to meet Armstrong  at Vernon at the same time.  The football tram went up to  Vernon last Friday, but although  thev report an enjoyable trip, they  had to acknowledge defeat by 7 to  I.' Today they are playing at  home in the Park against a team of  the B. C. Horse from Vernon.  His Thirst Saved Him  , A grave digger at Summerland  had a narrow escape froth being  buried alive and two men working  near had a bad scare last week,  The first, a municipal, employee,  named Hobbs was engaged digging  a grave and had had difficulty owing to the loose sandy nature of  the soil, which caused frequent  caving in. Mr. Kirstine, a neighboring farmer, was at work with a  Chinaman nearby and could see  the progress of the digging. Sud  denly Mr. Kirstine suspected that  all was not right and rushed over  to the grave to find to his horror  that a mass of sand and huge  boulders had fallen in and that the  digger was not to be found. He  seized a spade and began frantically to remove the fallen earth. After a while he  came across the hat of the grave digger,  which greatly increased his concern and  caused him to redouble hia efforts to reach  the buried man before he suffocated. He  waa plying the shovel wilh despairing  energy, when Mr. Hobbs, the grave digger  himself appeared over the crown of the  hill from a creek nearby where he had  been for a drink. This gentleman was  astonished to, see earth flying in all directions from the grave he had just left. The  surprise and relief hia unexpected appearance caused Mr. Kirstonecon be imagined.  Had it not been for Mr, Hobbs' lucky  thirst he would undoubtedly have been  killed or seriously injured when the grave  sides fell in,  Rutland News  (From oar owa oorrssnoadsDO.  Mrs. W. Gay returned home on  Saturday alter an extended visit to  Vernon.  Laat week the Girls Enterprise  Club went up to Eight Mile Creek  on a' camping trip which lasted  three days. They had a splendid  holiday. Over-alls were the regulation costume.  Rev Vernier of Ellison preached  at the Mount View Church last  Sunday.  Rev. Griffiths returned on Saturday from attending thr Methodist  conference at Vancouver.  The Baptists held a missionary  meeting at the home of D. Wilson  on Tuesday afternoon.  The monthly meeting of the  United Farmers"will be held atthe  school on Monday June 3rd at 8  o'clock. Mr. Geo. Barber of Salmon  Arm will address the meeting on  the subject of "Cooperation." The  meeting will be open and visitors  will be welcome.  The regular meeting of the  Young People's Club was held in  the schoolhouse on Friday evening  when Mr. Geo. White, who has  lately returned from the front, gave  a very interesting account nf his  experiences overseas. Thay encountered no' leal hardships after  leaving home until they landed in  Le Havre- amid a foot of snow.  Here they had no protection  against the weather but their tents  and a blanket apiece which was  frozen so stiff that it would scarcely bend, Luckily another detachment of men coming up took pity  on them and lent them a few.  They had somewhat similar experiences at Brest also.  He spoke also of. the gallant  defence of Vimv Ridge, -a- hill resembling one of the Rutland benches, by the Canadian troops, and  lastly he gave a very comprehensive picture of trench raids and  skirmishing with an account of  some of his own hair-breadth  escapes when acting as " bayonet  man" to a bomb-thrower who waa  clearing the " Frilzes" out of the  trench.  Miss Amy Fleming . sang a patriotic selection, after which the  president, Mr. Everett Fleming, announced that the various patriotic  organizations of Kelowna were  planning a carnival for July 6th to  raise some much-needed funds.  The Club was asked to i?ive an  individual entertainment of its own  in conjunction with the town  societies. It was decided to let the  matter stand over until next meeting to give-the members time to  think about it.  Mr. R. J. Sproule has received  news of the death at Victoria of  his father, a resident for many years  in Kelowna. The old gentleman who had  reached the advanced age of 63, was one  of the pioneer farmers in Ontario, coming  out from the old country nearly seventy  years ago. He waa one of the first workers on the Grand Trunk railway. He came  to Kelowna about twelve or thirteen years  ago, after a period of nearly twelve yeara  on the prairie. His wife died about four  yeara ago, and aince then he has lived with  hia daughter near Victoria.  Mrs. Ambler returned last weekend after a stay of several weeks at  the coast. '  The German offensive has apparently been renewed, and the  scanty news so far tells of some  successes they have achieved in  crossing the river Aisne in a drive  on SoUsons, and in the north towards Ypres. They are meeting  with heavy losses, however, and  every confidence is expressed in  the ability of the Allies to hold the  enemy back.  A daughter was born on ths 20th to Mr.  and Mrs. Lumb Stocks, of Penticton.  Keep Saturday, July 6th for the Patriotic  Carnival. It will be a 'great' day for the  grown-upa and children. Everything will  be absolutely patriotic. Ladies baking for  the afternoon tea will kindly observe the  Food Board's regulations and requests.  By locking up Nick Errico, the  provincial police believe that they  have prevented the activities of a  dangerous alien enemy, who was  prepared to enter upon a wrecking  campaign. Errico waa apprehended in Ocean Falls just as he was  about to sever a high-power line  and connect it with one of lower  voltage which led into the pulp  plant for the purpose of operating  the machinery. Had the connection been Completed, it is stated  that the machinery would undoubtedly have been destroyed, and  possibly a number of lives lost. Errico was equipped with insulated  cutters and rubber gloves, and a  complete case against him ia claim-  ad.  Drowning Fatality  at Summerlaod  Cyril Sharpe, the 15-year-old  son of the C.P.R, agent at Summer-  land, was drowned Sunday last by  falling overboard from a motor  boat. He and the engineer were  the only occupants of the boat at  tha time, the youth steering while  tha man attended to some adjust-  meni of the engine. Noticing the  boat zigzagging wildly the man  looked up to find that the boy had  disappeared. Just what caused the  boy to tumble out is not known.  The body was not recovered until  yesterday when it was shipped to  Vancouver for interment.  Summerland is apparently an  unlucky place for C.P.R. agents.  Last summer two agents were  drowned in succession, and now  the third has lost his. son. Much  sympathy is felt throughout the  district for the parents.  The Women's Mission Circle of  the Baptist church spent a most  enjoyable afternoon on Tuesday  when they journeyed to Rutland to  hold their regular monthly meeting  St Mrs. D. Wilson's home. A party  of twenty including the pastor, Rev.  Arnold Bennett, drove out from  town and were joined by a dozen  of the Rutland ladies making an  attendance of 32, The chief feature of the programme was a short  talk on Foreign Missions by the  pastor, and a half-hour's chat over  the tea kindly provided by Mrs.  Wilson ended the happy occasion.  Dr. S. L. Taube, the eyesight specialist,  of the Taube Optical Co., Calgary, will be  at Trench's store on Wednesday and  Thursday, June 5th and 6th, for the purpose of examining eyes and suiting glasses  to all defective sight. No matte:- what ia  wrong with your sight, it would be to  your benefit to consult him. All work  absolutely guaranteed to suit the eye the  tame as the teat.  Two Months For  Stealing a Bicycle  Tony Jacobe!|ia. a well known  Italian shoemaker, went up to Kamloops last Friday morning for two  months for the offence of stealing  a bicycle, to which he pleaded  guilty.  Last Tuesday Mr. W. Longley  lost his bicycle which had been  standing outside the furniture store,  and though diligent search waa  made no trace could be ' found of  it for some days. Last Tuesday the  owner happened to see a machine  which he recognized as his own  standing outside a restaurant, and  he waited to see who would claim  it. An Italian young man eventually  came out and prepared to ride off.  On being questioned as to where  he got the machine' he said he had  bought it from Tony Jacobellis for  thirteen dollars. The appearance  of the machine had been changed  by an application of paint, but there  was no doubt as to ita identity.  On being charged with the theft  Jacobellis admitted his guilt.  Miss Gertie Sutherland went  down to the coast last week-end  for a short visit.  Last Thursday morning Mr.  Allister Cameron went down to  the coast with the intention of enlisting for oversess.  A once familiar figure in Kelowna has passed away in Vernon in  the person of W. Scott, former stage  driver on the Vernon-Kelowna  route. The old man, for he was  75 yeara of age, had been greatly  enfeebled during the past few years  as the result of a bad accident with  his automobile, which ran over the  bank at a bad part of the road. He  passed away Tuesday, the funeral  taking place in Vernon to-day.  Man Mary  Fined for Assault  Mary Tcmat is a Siwssh ladv  with a very lively sense of her  rights, and ��� strong resentment for  intruders upon the reserve at West-  bank. Her zeal in this diiection  lead her into trouble on Saturday  laat whan ah* was fined thi and coats er  assaulting D. E. Gellatly.  It appears that a couple of weeks ago  Mr. Gellatly had gene upon the reserve  ta repair a flume which supplied his place.  Ha met with opposition, however, and had  to bast a retreat He cams again, fist  having secured th* aniatanrs of Constable  Graham, who concealed himself near ao  aa to hear and see what happened. When  Mary espied Mr. Gellatly again eh* let  loose all the fury of her native eloquence  and invective upon him. Mr. Gellatly is  himself no beginner in argument, and he  rafuaed to budge until ha had finished hia  work.  Mary, who ia not thc "kind, land, aad  gentle ' lady referred to in th* swag, wand  atill hotter, and picked up a piece ot wood  studded with nails to enforce her argument Though not gentle Mary is husky,  and would no doubt have made some impression upon Mr. Gellatly, had not Constable Graham stepped forward.  Mary, however, atill stood upon h.r  right*, and refused to appear in court until  Indian Agent Brown could get here. She  was finally arrested on a warrant and  locked up until Saturday.  The Indian Agent wa* present at the  trial, but Mary had to pay th* penalty for  hoi violence.  Dr. Mathison left for Vancouver  on Wednesday to attend the annual meeting and clinics of the  B.C. Dental Society to be held  next week. Mrs. Mathison accompanied him and they will spend a  couple of weeks at the coast.  Cigarette smokers accustomed to  using "Bull Durham" for the "makings" will have to find a substitute  for their favorite brand. The United  States government has taken over  the entire output for the use of the  army. ,  A mysterious plague is causing  consternation throughout Spain.  Late Frost Cause Much  Damage in Valley  Although weather conditions for  aome time have Keen somewhat  abnormal, it wat scarcely deemed  possible that such a frost as struck  the valley last weekend could hap-  in this part of the country. From  yearn of past experience it wai considered  that the limits of danger had been well  pasted: Aa a result of confidence a considerable percentage of the area to be devoted thia year to tomatoes, an area enormously larger than any previous year, had  been planted. Aa tomato plants are very  tender there was a heavy loss in there.  Active and successful efforts have been  made by all interested to round up fresh  plants, and most of the acreage damaged  wilt be replaced, the only low being the  cost of new plants and the labor of putting  them in. Early garden stuff suffered a  little, but owing to the a backward season  generally hot much was up far enough to  be hurt.  Reports have been received of damage  to fruit orchards and in aome instances  where the location Was favorable to the  front, the loss is heavy. No reliable reports  have yet been made as to the actual loss,  and it is not wise to indulge in speculations  based on firat reports, which are almost  always grossly exaggerated. The frost  conditions seem to haw been general,  points down the valley suffering even  worse than Kelowna.

PARADES: The combined troop  will parade at the club room on  Wedneaday June 8 at 7.15 p.m.  DUTIES: Orderly patrol for  week, Wolves ; next for duty,  Eaglea.  Scouts Hewetson. Duncan and  Richards passed the second class  test of going a mile in 12 minutes  at scouts' pace, on Wednesday last  the 22nd inst.  e ���  The troop has temporarily lost  one of its best friends in the person of Mr. Alister Cameron who  took passage to ��� Vancouver on  Thursday last for the purpose of  joining up with the engineers. He  was evr willing to lend his help to  us in whatever way he could and  gained a secure place in the affection and esteem of the troop for his  trouble and kindness in guiding us  to the railroad and the mountains  thereabout from our camp at Cedar  Creek during the laat two years.  Just before leaving we presented  him with the thanks badge which  we trust will be his talisman for  good luck and a safe and speedy  return to us again.  *        e  We are very glad indeed to have  P. L. Francis Buck back with us on  leave, which we trust will be extended. He arrived home on  Monday evening through the kind-  neea of Messrs Bulman and Pack-  ham who went to Armstrong for  him by car, which place he had  reached from Salmon Arm, through  the kindness of a stranger friend,  who took him that far by car.  a        ���  a  Eighteen scouts and tne' scoutmaster embarked.on the s.s. Okanagan  for Summerland on Thursday afternoon last, which port they reached  safely about six o'clock, having  successfully dodged all hostile  mine-fields and submarines. We  were met by S. M. Zimmerman,  A. S. M. Har.'is and most of the  Summerland acouta to different  ones of whom our scouts were al  once assigned for their stay there,  and we cannot refrain from stating  immediately, that we cannot apeak  too highly of the kind hospitality  which was extended to us by Mr.  Zimmerma.., his officers and scouts  and our different hosts. We have  written separately to each one of  our hosts thanking them and we  hope that we shall have the opportunity of returning their kindness  bv entertaining all our Summerland  brother-scouts in Kelowna.  The weather looked very bad on  Friday morning and opened with  a drizzling rain. The clouds all  rolled away however and decided  to give the sun a chance. As the  campus grounds were damp it was  decided to have some basket-ball  in the morning and commence the  field sports in the afternoon at one  o'clock.  There were two good games of  basket-ball. For the first one was  furnished a junior team consisting  of Small, Rowcliffe, McKenzie,  Taylor and Sinkinson to play the  Penticton juniors. The latter were  somewhat new to the game and  the many rules but made up for  thia by energy and while we won  by a fair score, the play was always  fast, exciting and uncertain. Our  juniors also played one of the best  combination games we have yet  aean any of our scouts play. For  the nex game to be between seniors  we furnished a team consisting of  Day, L. Gaddes, Parkinson,' J.  Groves and Davis to play a Sum*  merland team consisting of J. and  W. Gayton, Taylor, Reid and Phin-  ney,   and. this  time   it was our  Waterloo to the tune of 14 points  against 2 in our favor.  It was unfortunate that we were  not able to furniah our atrongest  team, but even then while the score  would probably have been cloaer  we are not by any means sure that  we ahould have been the winners.  We shall certainly have to try and  have a few mire games with each  other next fall and winter. *  Sandwiches were passed around  for lunch and in the field sports  which followed Summerland won  the 50 and 100 yard dashes, lhe  running broad jump, both under  and over 15 (all by the same athlete by the way), and the high  jump. .Penticton had things all  their own way in the sack race and  we secured the running hop, step  and jun p, the troop relay race and  the three-legged race. The Penticton scouls came up in the morning by truck-jitney under S. M.  Atkinson, and as they are all junior  boys we should like to congratulate  them in being such good sports as  to furnish a team for the troop relay  race against certain defeat. We  had several other events to run off  but called them off in order to give  the grounda to the Kelowna and a  combined Summerland-Peachland  baseball teams for their match,  which resulted in a win for Kelowna by the score of 14 to 6. 1h-n  at 6 o'clock, wilh a few guests, 79  strong we sat down to banquet  furnished and served by the lady  friends of the Summerland troop,  and to say that it was "some banquet" ia putting it mildly, and pop-  can we ever forget it?  After everyone had exceeded  the within 25 per cent, error capacity lest a most happy gathering waa  brought to a close with speech,  song and cheers for each other from  the troops. The Penticton scouls  left for home that evening and we  returned on Saturday morning,  having enjoyed thoroughly every  moment of our trip and visit, and  the members of the Summerland  troop can congratulate themselves  that thev'illustrated in a very happy  and genuine manner the 4th Scout  Law.

S. McNutt, at Baker-  field, north of Los Angeles, Cal.,  and was with a party of friends  bathing in a water atorage reaervoir  belonging to the August Oil Company. She somehow got into difficulties in the water, and though  she was rescuer] after a short time  all efforts to revive her were unavailing. She was buried at Bakers-  field, the profusion of floral offerings  showing the popularity she had  gained during her short stay there.  It had been Miss Barnhill's intention  to make her home permanently at  Bakersfield and had applied for a  transfer of certificate from Canada.  This transfer arrived the day after  her death. Miss Barnhill's parents  reside in Nova Scotia.  Tuesday, June 4th, has been  decided upon aa " Sock Day" by  the local Red Cross organization.  " Sock Day," though held on different dates in various centres has  come to be recognized aa an important annual event.

Either  hand knitted or bought socks may  be sent in and, it is confidently expected that at least one pair of  socks will be donated by every  family in Kelowna and the rur-  rounding districts.

Publig School Notes  Edited by Principal Gordon  The editor has very kindly granted me 'he use of a column of his  paper for an occasional review of  Kelowna Public School life and  work.  We have done away wilh the  monthly honour roll because it did  not fulfil its object; namely, the  stimulation of effort. It did stimulate effort, but only in the case of  pupils who were clever by nature  or who had quiet homes in which  to do their work, or whose parents  were anxious and able to help  them at home. And as a rule the  first places were attained by the  aame pupils month after month.  Thus, while it was good advertisement for these pupils, it did them  little or nn grrod. In some cases  il ovei-shrnrrlated effort, SO that  the pupils bv striving against one  another suffered in health, and  often lhe rivalry extended to the  homes. A " dishonour" roll would,  perhaps, have been more effective,  but we teacheis huve a rooted  prejudice against telling such tales  out of school.  On looking over the register of  one of our rooms it was discover  ed that the painstaking work of  lhe teacher waa being impaired  by the irregular attendance of a  number of pupils. A day off here,  a half-day off there���irregularity  extending over a number of weeks  told a sorry tale. It was found on  inquiry that most of the pupils involved had been kept away to do  odd jobs. Now it seems to me that if  parents realized the seriousness of  repeatedly taking their children  out of school for single days and  half-days for causes other than  sickness or bereavement, there  would be less of it.  Let me try to explain. 'If a child  misses a half day he breaks a link  of a chain. The continuity of the  work is broken. The teacher has  often to add to her burden by  going over the work in private  with the pupil. If she does not do  so the child misses the meaning of  the next lesson. But i claim that  the teacher should rot be asked to  undertake auch tuition, especially  at the end of the day when both  JUNE 5th to 11th  OUR  Chautauqua  rV��  IN A BIG BROWN TENT IN THE CITY PARK  Six Days, Twelve Concerts, Twenty-two Attractions  Two Orchestras, Two Concert Companies, a Funny Fellow, a Clever .Reader, Six  Lecturers, a Dramatic Company, Soloist, Pianists, Violinists, Singers, Musicians���  ARTISTS OF ALL KINDS  WOOD, Ihe Farmer-Lecturer   -  RA Y, the Explorer-Lecturer  KERBY, the Military Lecturer  RADER, the Writer-Lecturer  Evening Lecture  An Education  ���   An Inspiration  An Outlook  WALLACE, lhe Educator-Lecturer   -    An Uplift  HINDLEY, the Patriot-Lecturer   -   A Satisfaction  You will enjoy every single number  throughout the whole series  Season Tickets, entitling you to attend every attraction:  Adults $2.50;    Soldiers in Uniform $1.50;    High School Students' $1.50;    Child's $1  Tickets on sale by the com mine members and by the merchants  Mother Goose Festival first night  Chautauqua Specials  It is a unique thing for a grocer to offer Special Prices  on goods at the present time but during Chautauqua  week (June 5rl I) we are going to spring ourselves:���  White Knight Soap  4 for SOc, 7 for 50c  Regular price 3 for 25c.
