THURSDAY, JULY |5,   1920.���4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Registration Period  Being Extended  July 31st is Now Last Day (or  Getting on Voters' List  Accoiding to a telegram juat received by regiatrar ol votera S.  Gray, the period for registration all  over the province haa been extended to midnight July 31 at. The Act  undet which lhe new votera' list ia  being prepared, placed the limit at  July 15th, which period, of course,  expires to-day. It haa been found  however, that in many parte of the  province the registration is anything but complete. Whether due  to the indifference of the public or  to want of information, hundreds  who are entitled to vote have not  filled out the requisite form, and  consequently do not vet appear as  voters. In Siuth Okanagan the  ground has been fairly well covered, but there are atill many who  shosjld make application. The commissioners appointed have been  working hard, but there are always  some who get missed even in a  systematic canvass.  Up to the present time the total  registrations for the riding amount  to 3253. Thia total leavea out of  account many applications which  sre still in the hands of the commissioners and which will be turned in later. The following analysis  shows the wsy in which the voters  ere distributed over the diatrict :���  Wooda Lake    99  Okanagan Centre    45-  Glenmore    76  Kelowna 1429  Benvoulin    92  Rutland 217  Ellison    76  South Kelowna  113  Westbank    75  Eaat Kelowna   129  Peachland   189  Mineole ,....   40  ReisTs Lading      7  Naramata  145  Summerland 243  West Summerland  280  Total to date 3253  Large  Crowd Attends  Band Benefit Sports  There waa an unusually large  gathering in the park last 1 hurs-  dsy afternoon, the occaaion being  the benefit sports and concert ar.  ranged under the auspices of the  Kelowna City Band. The latter is  now making rapid progress in its  reorganized form, and no amall  part ei the day's enjoyment wss  the excellent music tendered. It  tskes money, of course, to organize)  equip, and train a good band, and  the affair waa arranged primarily  with that end in view. In thia it  was successful, too, for iq sll the  handsome sum of $350 was real  ized, including the proceeds from  the tegging, fot which the ladiea  deserve much credit.  The exhibition ball game be  tween Penticton and Kelowna took  place in the afternoon, resulting in  e win for the visiters by 11 to 6.  Following this waa the regular  leage lacrosse game with Vernon  in which the home team were also  fsirly beaten by 3 to 0.  Rutland News  (Ikttsa osr owa eorrsirnonoVat).

Rutland Farmer Dead  There passed away last week at  the Vancouver General Hospital  William James Turner, a resident  of Rutland, who left a few weeka  ago for the coaat in the hope of  aecuring relief from the internal  trouble from which he had suffered for many years. His advanced  age of 63, and the fact that hia  complaint had lately reached an  acute atage, however, made hope  of recovery slight. The remains  arrived on Saturday's boat, when  the funeral, which warattended by  a large number of Rutland people,  took place at the Kelowna cemetery.  Mr. Turner came about sixteen  months ago  with his family from  Lethbridge, purchaaing the farm of  John  Woolsey, Rutland.   He had  A been mare or leaa seriously ill everJ  ^'_: L:J ��__: I    'i-j i�� .: l I  since hia arrival, and at times had  suffered severely. He is survived  by a wife and family of ten, gome  of whom are married. A daughter  Miss E. Turner, ia a teacher at the  Rutland achool,  , HON.  MARTIN BURRELL  whom ttUrtmtnt from tht Dominion cabintt took p/ec�� Saturday  The Hon. Martin Burrell, ex-Minister of Customs, and representative since 1908 of the Yale-Cariboo and later Yale district,  whieh includes the Okanagan, haa often of late expressed a desire  to return to private life, or at least to lay down the burden of public office, and that desire was gratified Saturday when he relinquished his lateat duties as Minister of Customs, the reshuffle  caused by the retirement of Sit Robert Borden and the succession  of Hon. Arthur Meighen, being a favorable opportunity of giving  effect to his desire. He j* to become librarian of parliament, and  as this is a salaried office under the government it wili necessitate  hia resignation or the constituency.  The Hon. Martin Burrell is a native of England. He came  out to Canada in his early manhood and settled first in the fruitgrowing district of the Niagara Peninsula, moving later to British  Columbia where he had a large fruit ranch at Grand Forks. He  was elected to the Dominion parliament first in 1908 for Yale-  Cariboo and on the redistribution was re-elected for the Yale  riding. During thia uninterrupted term of twelve 5 ears he has held  many important positions. His first elevation to,cabinet rank  waa aa Miniater of Agriculture and since he has been aucceSsively  Secretary of State and Minister of Customs.  Storm Damage at Niagara  Thirty-seven minutes of wind  snd rain sweeping ecross the Niagara peninaular, damaged the fruit  crop on which hopes for a bountiful  harvest had been centred, to the  extent of not less than $100,000.  Cherries, plums, peaches, apples  and garden truck, orchard after orchard, plot after plot, fell beneath  the fierce ohalaught. With amazing  auddenness the storm broke, firat  the wind dissipating the aoltry air  then rain deluging fields and con-  verting trenches into rivers. Hail,  stonea fell aa large as walnuts, and  lightening alao wraught ita havoc,  Limbs were totn off trees, orchards  and gardens lsid low, and in some  cases the hopes of a year shattered  in e moment.  New Town Planned  for Soldier Settlement  The provincial government agency is to be taken from Fairview, its  home for msny yesrs, according to  the Hon. T. D. Pattullo, and placed  in the new soldier lands town on  the Okanagan river just south of  Tucklenuit lake and near the  canteen.  As the work of the government  agency at Fairview will largely be  in connection with lands, the logical place for the office ia on the  aoldier aettlement and not in Penticton or Princeton, according to  the view of the miniater, and it is  for thia reason that the government  has decided to place the agency  in the new townsite rather than in  either one or other of tha older and  more centrally located towns. Hon.  Mr. Pattullo conaiders that when  the railway is built from Penticton  as far south as the preaent location  the agency will be quite accessible  which is more than can be aaid of  Fairview at the present time.  Presumable if the land office ia  to be located St the new townsite  all other offices in connection with  the government agency will also  be there.  "We expect to have a model  town not far from the present town  of Fairview," he said. "Provision  is being made for trackage and  warehouses. In the village will be  parka, athletic grounds, church,  school sites and government buildinga. The government offices will  be removed to thia new townsite.  A name will be selected for the  town through a contest to be held  during the aummer."  There will be the usual Church  of England service held Sundsy  afternoon next at East Kelowna at  J o'clock.  Lieut. Trim, who was on his way  from the coaat to the Okanagan, ia  marooned at Merritt with a damaged machine, which was caused by  a bad bump suatained in attempting  to rise with insufeient room.  Arthur Meighan is  Borden's Successor  The retirement of Sir Robert  Borden and the selection the Hon.  Arthur Meighen as the head of  affaira in the Dominion, haa been  the principal political topic of discussion during the past week.  There will be wide satisfaction,  particularly' in the weat, over the  selection of Mr. Meighen to carry  on the fortunes of ^he newly-constituted partv. For the firat time  in the hiatory of Canada a premier  ia chosen from west of the great  lakes. The opinion is that the  new leader will bring to the party  all ihe energy and ability which  haa made him ohe of the ablest  members of the government in its  latest phases.  He has, in many respects, been  the workhorse of the administration, assuming the responsibility  for the legislation of many departments besides his own, and carrying through whatever he had undertaken with conapicuous success.  Hon. Arthur Meighen waa born  in Ontario on a farm naar the little  post office of Anderson, in Fnrth  county, 46 yeara ago. He was  educated et the coll-giate institute  at St. Mary's and the University of  Toronto. For a brief period he  taught school and in 1900 decided  to atudy law,. being called to the  bar of Manitoba in 1903. He practised at Portage la Prairie and  achieved great success in the criminal courts. It 1908, only five yeara  after his call, he waa elected a  bencher of the law society and in  1908 carried the federal constituency of Portage in the Conservative interests. He was re-elected  in 1911 and 1917.  In 1913 Mr. Meighen waa called  upon by Sir Robert Borden to take  the post of solicitor-general nnd  was re-elected by acclamation He  won prominence in the house ns a  forceful debater and has alwaya  been willing to accept opportunities to take the platform  on  ques  tions of public importance in any  part of the country. It ia ssid that  he has done more ptjblic speaking  outaide of the house aince his accession to cabinet rank than any  other minister.  Mr, Meighen was one of the  Conservative ministers retained by  Sir Robert Borden when the union  government waa formed and was,  in fact, promoted to full cabinet  rank on that occasion. He was  made secretary of state and minister of mines in August, 1917. A  few months later he took over the  department of the interior, under  which the Soldier Settlement Board  nd other important branchea of  endeavor were administered, and  haa held that portfolio since just  before the general election of 1917.  Mr. Meighan was called to Hia  Majesty's Privy Council in 1915,  and attended as a member the Imperial War Cabinet in 1918 with  Premier Borden.  Organize Forces for '  Prohibition Campaign  Provincial President Delivers  Eloquent Address  The meeting called. Monday  evening in Knox church to hear  Mr. Wm. Savage, a bariistii of  Vancouver, and well known as  president of the B.C. People's Prohibition Movement, furnished an  opportunity for the organization of  the movement in Kelowna in view  of the forthcoming plebiscite which  is to be taken in the fall. There  waa a large attendance, the Rev.  D. J. Welsh presiding. Before the  rvret ting closed a strong body of  officers and committee were ap-  poiniecl whp are lo meet next  VI.1-dm, lo lay plans for a vigorous  campaign 1 hose elected were as  follows: I'res., H. D. Ri ;g��; vice-  P'Ci, Miss I. Reelfie; Sec, L. O.  Browr; 1 reas J. Bnll ; Committee,  Mr��. Faulkner, Mrs. Swerdfsger,  M ss Poile, Miss Mowat. Revs. E.  D Braden nnd R. G. Edwards, J.  N. Thompson, G, S, McKenzie and  P. G. Hughes.  A second speaker in addition to  Mr. Savage was to have been present in the person of Mr. Thos.  Richardson, an ex-M.P. of the  British House of Commons, snd a  man of some prominence in labor  movements both in the old country  and in Canada. He unfortunately  waa unable to be preaent having  been called to Kootenay to assist  in settling certain labor disputea.  Mr. Savage is a fluent and ready  speaker and well versed in 'every  phase of his subject. He ran over  the history of the fight againat the  liquor interests, dealing particularly  with the well-known scandal of the  aoldiera' vote, at the time of the  passing   of  the  Prohibition  Act,  hen the most barefaced abuses  had been practised in an attempt  to uae the aoldiera to defeat the  meaaure.  Mr. Savage atrongly refuted statements which had been made as to  the increase of crime and the drug  habit, under prohibition. Theae  statements were distinctly at variance with the facta. There had  been many weaknesses in the Act  which had given rise to abuses  especially at the time of the "flu"  outbreak.  He spoke of the evil and degrading effects of the liquor habit upon  the people, which in spite of ita  weakness, the Prohibition Act had  done much to lessen. The only  real remedy was stronger action to  atop the importationa of liquor. To  lose in the coming.'plebiscite would  be to lose ground already gained  and allow the liquor interests once  more to gain the ascendency. He  urged that the strongest efforts be  made by a campaign of education  to avoid auch a contingency.  Famous British Sea  Lord Dies Sunday  Lord Fiaher, or more popularly "Jacky Fisher," admiral of the  fleet and former first sea lord of  the British Admiralty, died Sunday  in London. He was one of Britain'a  moat famous naval officers. He  entered the new i l 1854 and served in many campaigns,amem:; them  the Crimean war, the China war  and the Egyptian insurrection. He  haa occupied many administrative  offices, being chiefly famous for  his efforts in bringing up the stan  dard of the British navy to modern  efficiency. When the war broke  out in 1914 there was an instant  demand from the Britiah public for  his return to the Admiralty.

Notes  Men permanently disabled to  the extent of 5 to 9 per cent, can  now commute their penaions for  $300 and those disabled to the extent of 10 to 14 per cent, to a  maximum of $600. The increatec  of pensions now given bring to sn  equal penaion all membera of the  C.E.F. below the rank of captain;  thia means thst nearly 99 per cent,  of thoae in receipt of pensions will  be paid the aame, irrespective of  former rank.

MALTE, Oorn. Agrostologist  If anyone should venture deliberately to defer the harvesting of  grain crops on the strength of the  assumption that such delay might  reault in increaaed yields, he would  promptly be considered, to sav the  least, an unwise husbandman. And  yet, when it cames to harvesting of  hay crops, there are many who  tail, under the temptation of a  proapect of increaaed yields by  waiting to cut altogether too long.  "Mow your hay in the proper  season and be cautioua that vou  do not mow it too late,": aid Cato,  the eminent Roman, about two  thousand years ago, and what he  urged then waa truly sound advice  which holda good equally well today. It ahould be remembered, in  the first place, that the main natural tendency of plants, be they wild  or domesticated, ia to produce offspring, in other woids to develop  and mature seed. The grasses and  clovers which are grown for hay  and pasture all have that inherent  tendency. During the apring and  early part of the aummer they are  building up their bodiea, gathering  all the strength of life and all the  power of reproduction which they  can possibly manage to accumulate. From the moment when the  blossoming of their flowers begins  to take place, thia accumulated  supply is normally uaed for the  purpose of developing seed and it  consequently follows that the grasses and clovers are generally at their  beat, aa far aa vigour is concerned,  just when the seed begins to form,  i.e., during and immediately after  blossoming.  After the forming and ripening  of the seed haa begun to draw upon the alored-up resources of the  grcsa or clover body, their value aa  forage gradually decreasea. It ia  therefore obvioua that, in order lo  obtain hay yields holding the largeat percentage of prime feeding  subatancea, cutting ahould take  place right at the blossoming lime  or, in the case of graaaea, aa aoon  thereafter aa it ia practicable, lt  ahould also be remembered that  the palalabilily of most hay cropa  declinea rapidly after the blossoming peiiod is passed and that, consequently, hay cut at a late atage  furnishes a forage which is leaa  reliahed by atock than hay cut at  the right time.  To defer cutting until long after  bloaaoming results, moreover, not  only in hay of a lowered quality  being obtained but alao in actual  loss of forage through withering  and dropping off of leaves, especially from the lower portions of the  plsnts, and also through the increaaed opportunity for disease of  various kinds to develop.  Finally, deferred cutting tends to  reduce the productiveness of the  aftermath, a fact which, of course,  ia of great practical importance, lt  is especially noticeable in crops  like alfalfa the pronounced value  of which depends, to a great extent,  on iheir faculty of producing more  than one hay crop in a aeason.  ln Switzerland motot cara will  not be allowed lo run during day.  light hours on Sundaya from May  I to September 30, This regulation ia intended to enable people  who do not own automobiles to  take their holiday excursions with  out being annoyed by dust.  Dr. Glover, the young physician  whose cancer serum ia being tested in a Toronto hospital, haa had  to leave the city to escape being  pestered about it, says the Toronto  Mail and Empire. The aerum is  still in experiment, and not yet  proven. The excesaive attention  paid to it by the reporters has em-  bsrassed the real work of testing it  quietly, in advance of any expert  pronouncement upon it.  New Brunswick "Dry"  With a majority of 21,000 tor the  retention of the provincial prohibition act, and a majority of approx-  imalely 15,000 againat the sale of  light winea and beer, the province  of New Brunawick gave emphatic  expression Saturday to ita position  regarding lhe great question of  prohibition at the plebiscite held  throughout the province. The  citiea and larger towns, which may  be termed the industtial centres,  and for which beer had been argued atrongly, polled larger majorities againat beer and wine, as well  as being solidly for retention of  the prohibitory laws. The final  vote on the New Brunawick referendum follows :���  For prohibition 41,436 ; against  20.769.  For beer and wines 23,713 ;  againat 38,375.

Last Monday afternoon an  American car, said to have come  from Okanogan, Wash., fell off the  road into the- lake between Summerland and Penticton, resting on  its side in the water. The car waa  occupied by a man and his wife  and children. One of the girla  was pinned under the car in the  water and was nearly drowred  before rescued. Artificial means  for reviving respiration had to be  resorted to. The father, who was  driving the car, suffered some  broken ribs and waa taken on to  the Penticton Hospital. The other  membera of the party dried their  clothes by a fire by the side of the  road and later in t;he afternoon lhe  car was pulled out of the lake not  seriously damaged.  Aa Mra. M. J.

R. Thomson  Phone 342  The intereat of local theatregoers has been arouaed to unusual  pitch by the announced appearance at the Empress on Wedneaday and Thuraday neit, of the  latest Universal-Jewel master feature, "The Virgin of Stamboul"  with Priscilla Dean aa the star and  directed by Tod Browning.  "The Virgin of Stamboul" was  written especially for Miss Dean  by H. H. Van Loan, and the author has endeavored to paint a  picture of "lhe wickedest city in  the world." The atory is aaid to  be rich in dramatic quality, arousing sympathy and auspense, causing the spectators to amile and  weep, and with a wealth of real,  red-blooded action to aet the pulses throbbing.  From the opening scene, showing the ancient city of Stamboul  aa it appears to-day, and Misa  Dean, as the untamed desert girl  who ekes out an existence by dancing and begging in the streets,  plying her trade, to the last fade-  out showing Sari, her aoul cleansed  and happy in her new-found love,  the story is one succession of dynamic situations, enacted for the  principal pari for Wheeler Oak-  man aa the captain of the Black  Horse Troop, Wallace Berry as the  sheik, E. A. Warren aa the Hi's,  Edward Burns as the American  tourist, Ethel Ritchie as the favorite nf the harem, Eugenie Forde  aa the mother, and many other well  known players who surround the  fascinating Miss Dean.

The  new system is by the use of inland  revenue stamps, to be affixed to  the gooda aold or to the receipts  iaaued. This will replace the present cumbersome aystem of issuing  duplicate aalea receipts which have  to Ottawa. It is said that atamps  for thia purpose will be issued in  denominations from one cent. to  ten dollars.  The difficulty appears to be the  diviaing of some method of ensuring lhat the atamps, once affixed,  cannot be used again, and thia will  probably be done by the use of  some peforaling device.  Cache Creek, four miles from  Ashcroft on the Cariboo road, was  the scene of a cloudburst Monday  afternoon, when a rush of vtatei  swept down the bed of the atream  and did considerable damage,  Houses, barns and treea were swept  down the creek and the Cariboo  road for a distance of aeveral miles  was badly damaged, the govern-  ment road camp .waa demolished  the posloffice swept away, and  about a dozen people are without  homea today, and aome stock lost.
