 ^2re.\icry*��\  VOL. VII.   NO. 12.  KELOWNA. BRITISH COLUMBIA THURSDAY, FEBRUARY II, 1915.-6 PAGES~  $ 1.50 Per Annum  Redistribution Report  Presented to House  Kelowna Will Have Adequate  Representation  In the legislature Mon lay  reports were presented from the  ��� /redistribution commission by  the provincial secretary. Separate reports . covering proposed  rearrangement oi constituencies were handed in irom the  two commissioners, Judge McDonald and Judge Morrison.  Judge Morrison's report, as  he alone signs it, carries with it.  a schedule covering the em ire  list of constituencies in the province. Judge McDonald's state  , ment and schedule deals onlv  with Tertain constituencies, lesv  ing the assumption that on the  points not covered he agree  with his confrere. *  Forty-seven members ahould  comprise the next House, according to Judge Morrison's  schedule, while Judge McDonald  makes the count fortv-five, and  at the same time deprecates thc  necessity of any increase.:, The  present House has forl.v-tw)  members. The constituencies affected as to increased representation are Vancouver, one nd-  ditional; Richmond, twj: Skee-  na one and Okanagan one.  In pur own immediate neigh-  borhood, the changes most significant are in tne Similkameen  which loses'the Kettle Valley to  Greenwood and gains from the  Okanagan all that portion south  of a line east and west at  Trout Creek, just below Summerland, thus taking Penticton-,  into the Similkameen. The rest  ������ of the Okanagan division which  thus loses Penticton, gains Salmon Arm and Sicamous on the  north and is again divided at  'the Coldstream river into north  and south Okanagan with a  member for each.   ���  By this arrangement, which  will be quite acceptable and indeed gratifying to Kelowna people, this district at last secures  adequate representation iu the  provincial house.  The new division of which Kelowna will thus be the natural  centre will include Summerland.  Naramata, Peachland, West-  bank, Kelowna and surroundings, Okanagan Centre and Okanagan Landing, to a point just  south of Vernon, which of  course will be' in the northern  , end. This area includes a population of probably eleven or  twelve thousand people.  In his report Judge McDonald  says there has been a large increase in British Columbia's  population since the last redistribution, but the fact that this  \ increase was not spread evenly,  but was especially confined to  the coast, makes it difficult to  handle. Over two-fifths of thc  voting strength of the province  is in Vancouver or within 20  miles of the city. He thinks,  for several reasons, the population should not be a goveruin  factor in representation.   -��   DR.  WESBROOK SPEAKS TN  RAYMER'S HAW,  A special evening public meet  ing in connection with the short  course lectures was held in Rav-  mer's hall Tuesday evening. The  principal speaker was Dr. Wes-  brook, head of the new B. C  University, who delivered a  most interesting address ou  some of the ideals and aims and  problems confronting the university scheme. His wide experience and deep knowledge of  educational methods of the lead-  ing institutions'of manv cmm-  tries, and his high conception oi  the purpose and possibilities of  higher education were fully reflected in his remarks, which  were listened to with great interest.  Mr. H. Rive gave a talk illustrated bv lantern slides !>n  "Dairying" and Mr. Hopkin;  showed some excellent pictures  of better-class tvpes of live  stock.

Signs  are-not Had   his audience ever thought  Kelowna Figures In  Dominion Estimates  BAPTIST YOUNG  PEOPLE'S SOCIETY  "Imperial Cooperation" was  the subject of an address given  by Mr. L- V. Rogers t.i the H.  Y.P.S. meeting on Monday evening. Mr. Rogers spoke of ancient empires, with which we  associated the names of Alexander, Caesar and Napoleon und  went on to talk of the British  Empire which we called our empire. He contrasted physical,  greatness with moral greatness,  the laMer of which was to be  the mofe desired. Imperial Federation as contrasted with cooperation was dealt with, Mr.  Rogers claiming that while the  first led to diversity of action  on the part of the various units  comprising it, cooperation welded the empire together. The  speaker was heartily thanked  for his address.  Next Monday Mr.. Pelton will  give a lantern lecture talk on  "Rambles on the cast coast,"  The main estimates for tht)  fiscal year, tabled in the Commons this week, provide for a  total appropriation of 5 wo,.W,-  352, a decrease of �� 17,7 c>m 320  as compared with the total  amount voted in both main jni  supplementary estimates si ill  to come, this session's appropriations will probablv equal if  not surpass, those of last year,  exclusive altogether of the Si 00-  000,000 voted for war purposes.  Amongst the votes for publio  buildings of interest in thc district are the following:  KELOWNA j>,o'.o  Penticton    20,000  Revelstoke    50,000  Golden    2o,o<u   .   Mr. H. J. Williams left Tuesday fot a visit to Calgarv  Mr. H. Brunt, who has been  acting for some weeks as organist at the Methodist church left  Monday for the coast.  Mr. A. E-. Stocks left last  week for England with a view  to seeking service in some  branch of the naval service, in  which he has already had considerable experience.  Messrs. Pete Smith, Alec  Smith and J. Maver left Kelowna Monday morning for Ottawa  where they are to enlist with  the forces as auto transport  drivers.  An alarm of fire was turned  in on Monday soon after 13.30  noon, from. Chinatown. A chimney fire in Sam Lee's lauitdi -,-  however, proved to be the onlv  trouble, and this was extinguish  ed in a few minutes with verv  little damage.  The death took place in the  earlv hours of yesterday morning of Mrs. Frances Virginia,  wife of Mr. D. Bertram of Kelowna. A funeral service will  be held at the home on Harvev  avenue at 2..v> todav. and the  remains will be shipped bv tomorrow morning's boat to  Maple Creek, Sask., for interment.  The government remount purchaser turned tip at Kelowna  last Thursday and spent the .In'  in examining the manv horses  which were submitted lo him  As was expected only a small  proportion of those offered were  accepted, the total purchases  amounting to 22 including cavalry and artillerv horses. The  prices paid ranged from $100 to  91.60.'   *   Premier Asauith, sneaking in  the House of Commons Mondav  said that British casualties in  all ranks in the western arena of  the war from the beginning oi  the war to February i, amounted to approximately 104,000  men. This included wounded  and missing.  Mrs. L. W. Shatfoft died on  Sunday last at Victoria.  wanting however that' this condition is to be changed in some  measure, for ths local Liberals have recently begun to exhibit svmptoms of returning  animation, and in pursuance of  this policy a public meeting was  arranged for Tuesday afternoon  in Raymer's hall to hear an address   from   John   Oliver, the  Honest John" who as member  for Delta was a leading iigure  of the Liberal opposition in the  House for many vears until the  fortunes of politics swept him  along with many of his colleagues into retirement at '.he last  election.  Honest John has a certain fluency of oratory and a keennesf  in criticism which is all his own  and his speech of Tuesday, delivered in a somewhat high kc  in which he roasted the govern  ment from top to bottom, and  from east to west, did not fail  to keep the attention of the  sbme iso men who had gathered  to hear him.  The chair was taken by Mr  L. V. Rogers, president of 1h;  Liberal Association, and Mr. F.  R. E. DeHart also assisted at  the meetinir.  Mr. Oliver gave most of his  attention to the land policy of  the government.  The maps issued by ihe government he declared, were mis"  leading, as land shown tis open  for pre-emption was really in  the hands of speculating companies who luid managed to get  inside information ahead of  what was supplied to the public.  Agricultural land he believed,  should not be sold at ail, and  should only be parted with on  conditions of continued residence  and productiveness. If such a  policy had been pursued, lhe  population of British Columbia  could have been doubled, und  profitable employment found for  all. There would have been no  empty stores and mortgage fori  closure all over the province  The government had guaranteed  the bonds of railway companies  but the country must be developed or these companies could  not pay the interest and sinking funds on their debentures.  How could the country be developed, he asked, when tin best  lands were allowed to .*o into  the hands of speculators who  would hold it until they could  get higher prices?  He criticised the outlay involved in the preparation ol Unreport of thc Agricultural Commission, which he claimed embodied nothing but what had  been a part of the Liberal platform for years and touched also upon thc taxation of the 1 ro-  vince, which he said was inequitable, and allowed the big  speculators to get off too lightly.  He was particularly wvere in  his condemnation of the government for what he considered  was its failure to carry out a  promise to"deal with the labor  problems ol the province. A  Labor Commission had been appointed and had delivered a report. This commission, hy thc  way, had been purposely b-pt  away from Nanaimo, whioh had  been the scene of much labor  trouble, because of the fear that  it would conflict with the McKenzie & Mann interests them.  Amongst their recommendations was one for the adoption  of a Workmen's Compensation  Act. This too, he claimed, had  been a matter the Liberals had  been advocating for vears past.  Referring to British Columbia's contribution of soldiers to  fight the battles of the   empire,  of that? How "many of them  would come back cHonled and  incapable of earning their own  living? Were we going 10 turn  them adrift as beggars and paupers, or were we going tc provide for them?  Every year, he said, the industries of the world were making more cripples than the war.  and it was the duty of the government to place a law upon  the statute book to provide tor  these cripples. It was not good  business to continue to manufacture cripples and beggars  Statistics of the state ot" Washington which had adopted a  Workmen's Compensation law  showed that ample provision  could be made for insurance to  cover all industrial accidents for  a premium of one per cent oi thc  payroll.  What did the government propose to do? Thev were going to  bring in a bill and lay il on the  table for a year!  Continuing Mr. Oliver went on  to speak of the wholesale extravagance of the government in  the matter of salaries lot officials, which had increased vear  bv year from .c2(Sa,ooo in rqoy-S  to Si,744,000 which was the  vote for the present "ear.  Mr. Oliver indulged in muoh  biting sarcasm regarding the  loads of the province, -showing  some photographs he had taken  while travelling over the road  from Fort George where he said  a team of six horses had hardly  sufficed to pull them through  the mud. He compared this  with the big sums which were  being spent to provide mtomo-  bile roads for the pleasure of  those who had made their little  piles.  Dealing with the publio uc  counts in the light of the government's statement that there  was need for economy at (In  present time, he criticised thc  expenditures on roval tommis  sions, and the growing cost ot  constitutional litigation, which  latter was a hand-out from Mr.  Bowser to his legal associates.  Charges of wholesale graft wen-  laid against the government in  connection with the Sotighee  and Kitsilano reserves. The  whole country, he declared was  seething with fraud.  '  He scored the Attorney - General in the matter ot the Dominion Trust scandal, placing responsibility upon Mr. Dowser  for his failure to advis 1 he gov  eminent of thc Illegal nature of  jts financial operations, assert  ing that he had placed private  interests before his dutv to the  province. And the Dominion  Trust affair, said Mr. Oliver,  was not a patch on other scandals he could name.  He concluded bv assuring his  audience that the remedy for  these evils lav in their hands at  the next election, and appealed  for support for the Liberal par-  tv in the district.  Capt. Worsnon. of Kamloops,  who is accompanying Mr Oliver  on his tour, read some correspondence he had had with the  authorities at Ottawa in regard  to the purchasing of army remounts in British Columbia.  He accused thc Hon. Martin  Burrell of indifference to the  needs of the province in failing  to send war orders out west.  and claimed that but for tbe  pressure he had brought lo bear  upon the government, Uie fact  that this province had horses  for sale suitable for armv purposes, would have been altogeth  er overlooked.  The meeting was then thrown  open for questions, and accept  ing the invitation, Mr. Lionel1  E. Taylor took exception to a  remark of Mr. Oliver regarding  what he termed the useless  waste of monev bv the department of agriculture. The speak  er, said Mr. Taylor, had challenged anyone to say that he  had got ten dollars worth of  real beneiit from all the money  spent by tjiat department.  "I am one," said Mr. Taylor,  "who can say that, and what is  more, if it had not been for tbe  work.of the fruit inspectors in]  combatting orchard pests and  diseases, this district would be  in bad shape to-day." Mr.  Taylor went on to speak of the  short courses in horticulture  which were at present proving  of great benefit to so many farmers in the district, and other  valuable aid which had been received from government demonstrators and lecturers from  time to time, He considered  Mr. Oliver's remarks as unfair  criticism of a body of men who  were doing good work, but who  were precluded by their position  as civil servants from, replying  for themselves.  Honest John was plainly a  little taken aback by this attack, and for a while showed a  disposition to hedge, disclaiming having made such a challenge. Upon Mr. Taylor, however, persisting that he hard  taken down the exact words uttered bv Mr. Oliver said he  thought Mr. Tavlor must have  misunderstood thc purport of  his remarks. He was glad how  ever he said, to find s6iucr>ne  who had received ten dollars  benefit, as he himself had not  received ten cents.  "Perhaps" retorted Mr. Tavlor, "it is not everyone who is  in a position to take advantage  of thc instruction iriven."  THE RUTLAND MEETING  In the evening a large and enthusiastic crowd turned up at  the Rutland school house, where  both political parties were represented. The place of meeting  had been tastefully decorated  with flags bv the committee of  the Rutland Liberal Association  and the speakers were accorded  a patient hearing. A large  number of ladies were present-  Mr. Morrison presided and  briefly introduced the speakers,  the first of whom, Mr. V. R E.  DeHart stated that Mr. Oliver  had resided in the province for  some thirty-eight vears and hud  been three times elected to the  provincial legislature at Victoria. He had gained the distinction of being called "Honest  John" from the Conservative  party itself.  Capt. Worsnop af Kamloops  spoke on what he thought the  government could and should do  for the farmer, He confined  his remarks principally lo the  agricultural ouestion and claimed that the Roval Commission  appointed to inquire into agricultural questions at a ei-st ot  f4,000 was a waste of time and  monev as all thc information  contained in the report submitted to the provincial legislature  was contained in a similar report on conditions in New Zealand and vet Sir. Richard Mc-  Bride said the recommendations  made in the report were impossible to carry out. He wanted  to show them that Sir Richard i  was wrong. He described the  condition of New Zealand some  Government Arranges  Farmers' Conference  Will Discuss Ways and Means  of Increasing Production  The Dominion Department , of  Agriculture has arranged for a  scries ot conferences to be held  held in the various provinces.  That in Kelowna will take  place on Saturday, Febuiry 27  at 8 p.m., when the following  will speak: Prof. McDonald,  Provincial Live Stock Commissioner, P.-H. Moore, superintendent of experimental farm,,  and Herbert Cuthbert, Industrial Commissioner of Victoria.  The primary object of the conference is to discuss ways end  means of increasing the sue and  value of the Canadian crop output in 1915, in order that the  supplies mav be sufficient to  meet the large demand anticipated on account of the war,  and crop shortages in several  of the beligerent countries. Tiie  organization of the conferences  in the various provinces lias already been placed in lhe hands  of men who have achieved p.'o-  minence in various branches of  agricultural work. Present conditions in competitive cotiuiries  such as Australia, New Zealand  the Argentine Republic and the  United States for the production of large supplies pf grain  and meat products for the usw  of the European countries will  be fully investigated and discussed at these conferences. Il is  believed that these countries are  at the present moment show.ng  a shortage in their next crops,  and consequently a great opportunity lies before Canada. The  conferences will cover the whole  of the Dominion.  This is a most important  matter and farmers will be consulting their own interests Ly  turning out in large numbers  . ���   KELOWNA DEBATING  SOCIETY  The third meeting was held nn  Friday, January 2-th. witn Mr.  N. D. MciTavish in the oluir.  Mr.' J. G. Richards proposed-  "That all persons of Asiatic origin should be excluded irom the  province of British Columbia ''  Dr. S. W. Thaver opposed ihe  resolution, and thc following  also sPoke: Messrs. Kerr, Grib-  ble and Corbv, Mrs. Whitehead,  Mrs., Kerr, Messrs Groves and  Jenkins and Mrs. Gore.  Mr. Richards replied and the  resolution was put to the meeting and declared lost by 12  votes to 4.  The next meeting will be held  tomorrow, (Fridav* n;<dit at  8 o'clock at the old school. The  debate will be on "Prolubi'ion" ..  and the resolution will lie "that  the sale and manufacture of intoxicating liquors should be  prohibited throughout the Dominion of Canada."  Mr.   George   Thompson   will  sneak in the affirmative and Mr.  Macready in the negative.   _    . 4   SMITH���HOOPER  A quiet but pretty woddin-'  was solemnized at the home of  Mr. and Mrs. A.

Will Great Britain be Forced  Jo Use Her Awful Secret?  Will Britain, driven to retalia  tion for violation of all recognized rules of warfare, annilii-  late the Teutonic race? Wili sh-J  resort to thc secret that, ior  more than one hundred years,  she has considered too terrible  to use?  Will she employ "Dundonald's  famous destroyer" and ai ont  blow exterminate millions of  human beings?  Ture? times, Britain, when in  sore straits, has considered using the mystery of the world's  warfare and three times tha: military and civil authorities have  revolted at the idea of such a  "wholesale slaughter."  Oundonald himself, when he  discovered the mysterious destroyer, declared that tbj* whole  soul of man revolted at the idea  of such sacrifice, and that, once  employed, any nation lnii'hc use  use it, and that its first use was  but a forerunner of the destruction of the entire human race.  That Britain should shudder  v ith horror at the thought of  destroying one-third of thc population of a continent in tt few  hours is second in interest to  the fact that, if Britain should  employ it against the Teutons  it would mean perhaps lhe eventual annihilation of all humanity and perhaps of all animal  life on the face of the globe.  What is Dundonald's destroyer?  At the present time, it is  said, the appalling secret is securely locked up in sealed vaults  in the tower of London. But  three persons���one of the roval  family, one of the army and one  of the naw���know what it is  Thomas Cochrane, tenth carl  of Dundonald, one of the most  daring of the British sea lords,  was also the greatest inventor  of his time.  In 1810 he led the British in  the attack upon the French fleet  in Basque Roads, one of the  ereatest feats of British naval  history. He was kept from destroying the enemy only bv gross  conduct of his superior officer.  Lord Gambier.  In a rage Dundonald made a  frantic assault upon Gambier  and Gambier, backed bv tht  corrupt admiralty succeeded in  disgracing Dundonald and forcing his retirement.  During his enforced retirement  Dundonald, experimenting wilh  gases and chemicals, suddenly  appeared before the admicalt  demanding the appointment of  a small committee to investigate his "new invention'."  He claimed that his invention  furnished "an infallible means  of securing at one blow our  military supremacy; of commencing and terminating a war  by one victory."  A roval commission investigated. It reported that Dundonald's destroyer would do  all that he claimed; that either  on sea or land it was irresistible and infallible!  The government refused to  adopt it, however. The committee* had reported that its "de  vastation would be inhutr.an; it  would transcend the limits of  permissible warfare." *  The report urged "that il be  kept a profound secret, lest oth  er powers get it and use it for  the annihilation of Britain and  the conquest of the world.1'    ,  In 1846 the admiralty appointed another investigating cam  .mittee of high officials., In .Tan-  uarv 1847 this committee reported that, "beyond a doubt.  Dundonald's destroyer uot onlv  would defeat, but would actually exterminate, sweep out of existence, annihilate anv hostile  force. To use such utter devastation would be contrary to the  principles of warfare."  During the Crimean war the  government, hard pressed and  desperate, was inclined to use  the mysterious destroyer in  the war against the Russians.  Thc admiralty once more voted to use thc device, provided  Dundonald would instruct two  officers as to how to em ploy it  against Sebastopol. He refused.  He stated that he 'would usti it  himself personally if permitted  full freedom, and that il  meant the death of the ajperator  as well as the enemy.  He would make the sacrifice  and annihilate all the Russians  Thc government again refused  to permit such a crime against  humanity.  Tradition among military exerts is that the committee of  1847 wrote a full and complete  list of directions as to the operations of thc destroyer and  that these directions have been  scaled in a vault in thc Tower  of London for vears.

SWORDY  A most unfortunate and unexpected thing happened this  week in the death, while under  chloroform of Mrs. Thos. Swordy, wife of a well known ranch  er of the district. The' anaesthetic had been administered by  Dr. Knox for the purpose oi extracting some teeth, and this  simple operation had been performed and the unfortunate lady  was recovering from the effects  when she had a sudden collapse  apparently without cause and  expired in Spite of the combined  efforts of Dr. Knox, Dr. Boyce  and Dr. Campbell to revive her.  Mrs. Swordy's daughter was  present at the time. An inquest  was held Tuesday morning, the  jury finding that death was due  to cardiac paralysis due to the  clfect of chloroform, and exonerating tne .doctor from all  blame. It was one of those  occurrences which will happen  on rare occasions in spite of the  utmost care. Deceased had taken chloroform on several occasions previously without ill effect.  Thc funeral took place yesterday, service being held at thc  Catholic church, and interment  at the Catholic cemetery at  Okanatran Mission.  Mr. and Mrs. Swordv arc old,  timers of the district, having  been resident here for over 1-  years.  J. H. CROFT  Bootmaker;  All kinds of Repairs  BERNARD AVENUE,  KELOWNA.

Flomintr. 10-19��  FOR EXCHANGE  HONEST JOHN OLIVER  ADDRESSES LOCAL  LIBERAL MEETING  (CohtiQUod from Puna 1.)  the present provincial govern-  meot who had the business a'oil-  ity to carry out such a scheme  as Mr. Seddon's and the premier himself admitted he had  not.  Mr. Oliver spoke lor well ovci  an hour and during that time  kept the attention of his audience as he spoke of Industrial  insurance-, the wild lands exploitation bv speculators, the  C. N. R. deal, Dominion Trusl  fiasco and civil service. In reference to thc first he spoke ol  whit I had been done in the slate  of Washington in the wav of industrial insurance.  Mr. Oliver referred to the  plank in the Liberal plalioti.i ol  free land for the actual settlei  anil the man who would work  il. Thev denied the right ���>[ anv.  man to step in and put an ini  penetrable barrier before those  who wanted to till the land.  When the present government  came into office in 1903 th.-v h,.d  almost virgin land to work up  on. Less than half a million1  acres were under cultivation,  Todav there were five an.l .1 halt  million acres held bv specula  tors that were absolutelv wild  and unprofitable. Thc present  government had every opportun-  itv to develop not onlv tin ay?  ricultural but other resources of  ill.' province, There were no  leases nor vested ri"hls in th)  wav. But what had it done'  It had bargained awav ail then  choicest lands to thc extent of  millions of acres.  Mr. Oliver however had one  good thing to sav about the  government and that wat tho  splendid school buildings the  had erected throughout the province.   Thc   importance of such  buildings as they were in that  night could not be over estimated' and he was onlv too glad  to sav that there was one iter.  at least of the government with  which he was thoroughls* in accord.  In conclusion he pointed out  that they could not build up a  good communiatv unless their  business was straightfovwardlv  and honestlv conducted. Politics was not a partv question,  It was a business and as such  sin add be conducted in a business wav. The men in powei  al Victoria were not conservatives, for thev had not in tine  way carried atit the policy given them in iqoq bv the Conservative partv, a policy which if  thev had honestlv carried out  would have been good for the  province. There was noi a single line of policy in that platform which he, as a Liberal  could not have endorsed; that  program had not been tarried  out. Those mm had not been  faithful to the people and he  wanted to sav to the Conservatives present that nitrht that  thev had a dutv to perform and  that duty was either to support  thc Liberal partv at the coming  election   or   if   thev   could not  MISCKI.LAJs'EOUS  flood movinir picture theatre, Finser  Btreet.

EDWARDS  conscientiously do that to put  before the electors men oi honesty, who would see that thev  carried out the true Conservative policy. They must either  do this or accept the.odium  which would be thrust upon  them.  Mr. It. V. Rogers followed  with a few words in which he  criticised the nresent school curriculum which he said was absolutelv useless irom a yracti'-al  point of view as it did not prepare thc children to take '.heir  place in the life of the Dominion. The object of the present curriculum was to prepare  boys and girls for thc university, but manv of them did not  want to go there at all. He advocated the policy of thc liberals for an advisory council t,n  education, to revise the .Miriicu-  lum in which such subjects as  agriculture! horticulture and  other useful studies should have  a place.  Refreshments were then handed round and the rest of iho evening was spent in social intercourse.  Mr. Oliver left Wednesday  morning for Summerland anrl  Penticton accompanied by Mi'  F. R. R.
