The following letter from an  Enderby solicitor claiming damage  from the council was also read :  City Clerk, Kelowna.  Re Wm.  R. Kendrick.  Dear Sir,���I am instructed by Wm. R.  Kendrick, now of Armstrong and late of  Kelowna, that some time ago he waa  arrested, triad and convicted of theft in  Kelowna; that while ha waa arrested certain articles belonging to him were taken  from him by your chief of police, Mr.  MacRae; that after serving his time in  Kamloops he returned to Kelowna, and  upon demanding tha return of his goods  and chattels, ha found that a new Derby  still hat had been '-rushed and destroyed  while in tha custody of your police, and  tha mouthpiece of hia comat had been  given by your chief of police to the secre.  taiy of the band; that that mouthpiece  had been filed and destroyed so far as Mr.  Kendrick ia concerned. These goode  should have been carefully kept by your  chief of police and returned to Mr. Kend.  rick in aa nearly tha aame condition aa  when taken from him aa is possible, and  in tha case) of th* hat and mouthpiece  there should ba no change whatever. Aa  you are aware, Mr. Kendrick ia a profea.  aional musician; plays only tha comet;  makes his living that way. and has for a  length of time earned $55 par week and  can do ao again. Thia mouthpiece is one  in which he haa always played, from the  time he began aa a boy to learn tha in.  etrument till he became one of the best  performers on the comat in America, holding positions aa leading comet player in  some of the greatest bands (including  Souse's) on tha continent. Thia mouthpiece  became invaluable to him through long  use, and the loss of it haa seriously impaired hia earning powers aa a musician  by lessening hia power to piny. Your  council may be aura that thia is a serious  matter tar Mr. Kendrick, and ia being  taken up seriously. For the sake of  amicable) settlement, and without prejudice  to any further claim that may be made by  legal process if an amicable arrangement  be not reached, he ia willing to accept  $2,000 for the mouthpiece and $3.00 for  the hat.  An early reply ia requested.  Voura truly,  A. BRIDGEMAN.  It was considered beneath the  dignity of the Council to reply to  the letter, which was filed.  A letter from Mr. R. B. Kerr protesting against the custom of building stairways without handrails  was referred to the Fire Protection  committee.  A letter from Mr. J. R. Greenfield  Post Office inspector, was read,  stating that the writer had been requested to report upon an application for a public building at Kelowna and asked that statistics of  the city be furnished.  Mr. F. R. E. DeHart waited on  the council and stated thst his attention had been drawn to a statement made ot a former meeting of  the council to the effect that one  of the considerations of the ex  change of property between the  Crowley Co. and the city for the  extension of Ellis street through  Block 45 was an understanding  that no further land would be required from the Crowley Co. for  street extensions. Mr. DeHart said  he was mayor at the time of the  transaction and he denied that any  such agreement had been w.ade.  The mayor said that Mr. Buck  land claimed that the agreement  was made.  Mr. DeHart replied that he did  not think they would find anything  of the kind recorded in the minutes or in the agreement with the  Crowley Co.  Aid. Sutherland reported that  the Water and Light Committee  had ordered supplies for the new  water intake from D. Leckie to  cost $655.50. This was the lowest  tender received.  Aid. Sutherland suggested that  the council be present at a test to  be made of the new electric generator during the same afternoon. He also reported that it  would be necessary to submit a  by-law for water extensions nt once  and suggested that the other committees prepare their estimates at  once so as to submit all money bylaws at one time.  Aid. Copeland reported the purchase of 500 feet of hose, and advised the procuring of a ten or  twelve station night watchman's  clock, which latter it was decided  to do.  The matter of improving or  changing the city offices was discussed. Offers of offices had been  made from other quarters but not  accepted.  * Aid. Raymer mentioned that the  Hewetaon Mantle Co., were erecting a building this year and provision had been made in the plans  or rooms suitable for council  chamber and city offices. He  thought more information should  be secured respecting this before  any improvements were made in.  the present room.  Aid. Copeland declared himself  against making any move until  the city could build its own City  Hall. This was generally agreed  upon and it was decided to make  some improvements to the present  room.  Aid. Taylor, said he had been  asked to bring up the question of  reducing the rates on water and  light to large consumers.  Aid. Sutherland objected to the  principle, as the city were now  supplying consumers nt cost price,  and if large users were supplied  below cost the difference would  have to be paid by the small consumer.  By-law 103 was given a third  reading and No. 104 was reconsidered and finally passed.  A resolution was passed appointing Messrs. Crehan, Mouat or. Co.,  of Vancouver, auditors for the city.  Aid. Sutherland said there were  many accountants in the city cap-  ,ble of checking the city's books,  but the city had recommended the  appointment of the firm named because they had moat of the municipal auditing between Penticton  and Vancouver and were also  auditors for some of the large  municipalities at the coast. Consequently they were fully conversant with municipal law and accounting  Aid. Taylor suggested the appointment of a permanent city engineer. One of the local surveyors would do all the city's work  for forty or fifty dollars a month,  whereas at present the city had to  pay half a day's fee for a job which  only took half an hour.  Aid. Raymer said he was not in  favor of such an appointment as  there was not sufficient work for  uch an official.  Mr. T. Lawson, chairman of  school trustees attended with the  school estimates for the year.  These are given in another column.  They were referred to the finance  committee.  The meeting then adjourned.  Miss George, of the public school  returned Saturday from Nanaimo.  Mrs. C. D. Tuckey left this morning for Toronto.  Mr. Jas. Harvey, anr., returned  from the coast yesterday.  Mr. J. G. Fraser and family left  this morning to take up their residence at the coast. A large number of friends assembled on the  wharf to bid them farewell.  Former Kelowna  Socialist Will Contest  Constituency  It was for some time expected  that there would be no contest in  the coming elections in the Okanagan, the Liberal party having  apparently not been able to find  anyone willing to undertake the  hopeless tax of opposing the Hon.  Price Ellison. There will bo a poll  however, as the Socialists have put  forward a candidate in the person  of Mr. George Stirling, of Salmon  Arm. Mr. Stirling is well known  in the Kelowna district, having  been up to a year or two ago a  school teacher in the neighbourhood.  Discovery of the  South Pole  Norwegian  Explorer Reaches  Long-Sought Goal  The discovery of the South Pole  has been made by Capt. R. Amundsen. Report nt first had it that  Capt. Scott, R.N., was the discoverer but it seems that definite  news from Amundsen has been  received in London stating that he  reached the pole between December Nth and 17th.  Capt. Amundsen left Buenos  Ayres on his present trip late in  1910 with a small party of Norwegians, all experienced in Arctic  work. He took with him a large  pack of Siberian dogs and all his  men were provided with skis for  traversing glacier ice. Amundsen's  party made its base and winter  quarters eighty miles nearer the  South Pole than his British rival.  W.M.S. Annual Social  The ladies of the Kelowna branch  of the W. M. S. seem to be untiring  in their efforts to raise funds for  this deserving institution, and on  Thursday night last held their  annual social at the residence of  Capt. Knight. Mrs. and Miss  Knight acted as hostesses and Mr.  J. A. Bigger, with his usual genial  manner, took the part of coach,  umpire and chairman combined.  A long program was contributed  by various friends and an original  competition introduced, which consisted of a number of kitchen  requisites being placed in linen  bags, their names being guessed by  sense of touch and smell���all the  friends " striking oil " when they  came to the black pepper I As is  usually the case, time simply evaporated, and refreshments having  been served, a collection was made  on  behalf of the society's funds  hich realised $17.  The prize went to Reggie Weddell last Saturday afternoon in the  Dreamland dot contest.  Dr. Matheson returned from  Summerland Sunday last, where  he has been staying for some time.  " Rival Dramatics," taken from  the French play "Chanticleer,"  which is something decidedly  novel in moving pictures, will be  shown at Dreamland on Friday  and Saturday. The characters are  represented aa giant roosters and  hens and the fun runs fast and  furious. The programme also includes " The Pathe Weekly " and  two very amusing short comedies.  The management declare this to  be the best programme they have  had for some time.  A large consignment of nursery  stock for the Central Okanagan  Lands, Ltd., is being hauled from  the cars.  Mr. Rankine, who has been  staying with his brother in Glenmore for the past few days left by  thia morning's boat on his return  east.  A horse and buggy belonging to  Mr. Driscoll, of Benvoulin, was  stolen from the main street in a  drunken frolic the other day, and  found only after a long search, the  buggy smashed and the horse grazing on the roadside, near Barlee's.  There is likely to be trouble for  the pair of joker*.  Conservative  Convention  Hon. Price Ellison is Again the  Party Nominee  The convention called for the  purpose of nominating a conservative candidate to represent the  Okanagan in the forthcoming provincial elections met at Vernon  Tuesday. There were 73 accredited delegates present from all  parts of the valley.  The convention was opened by  Mr. W. T. Shatford of Penticton,  who acted as chairman throughout.  A credentials committee consisting  of Messrs. Edmunds, Penticton;  C. H. Cordy, Summerland; E.  Weddell, Kelowna; Smith, Vernon;  Burns, Enderby; and Wolfenden,  Armstrong, was appointed, and a  committee on resolutions, Messrs.  E. Foley-Bennet, Penticton ; Lang,  Peachland ; J. W. Jones, Kelowna;  Shatford, Vernon ; Daykin, Armstrong; Ruttan, Enderby ; these  withdrew to carry out their duties.  Mr. A. O. Cochrane was appointed  secretary of the meeting.  Addresses were given by the  chairman and Mr. J. A. McKelvie,  and on the motion of F. Wolfenden of Armstrong, seconded by  C. H. Cordy of Summerland, the  Hon, Price Ellison was nominated  as the representative of the district  for another term of office. The  resolution was enthusiastically supported and unanimously adopted.  On entering the hall the Hon.  Price Ellison was received with  loud applause and being called to  the platform, addressed the assembly, touching upon the important  matters of government policy  which had necessitated an appeal  to the country at the present time.  He dealt with the various phases  of the railway policy, especially as  it affected the Okanagan valley,  and wilh his own particular work  as Minister of Finance, reviewing  the splendid financial condition of  the province, which made possible  an expenditure during the present  year of $ 16,000,000. Referring to  the question of redistribution for  the Okanagan, he expressed his regret that the government had been  unable to grant such a division until a general redistribution bill  dealing with the whole province  had been introduced, but assured  the meeting that this would certainly be done before another election took place.  The following resolutions were  brought in by the resolution committee and passed;  1. That the Liberal-Cot. servatives of  the Okanagan, in convention assembled,  do extend to the Hon. R. L. Borden our  hearty congratulations on his accession  to power and record our deep appreciation of the fulfilment of pledgee made  previous to the recent Dominion Election.  2. That this convention endoraa tha  policy of the Hon. Richard McBride and  his government in aid to railways under  the necessary safeguards, and more particularly that portion of the railway  policy recently formulated, which ensures to the Northern and Central Okanagan, a branch of the Canadian Northern  Railway, and to Central Okanagan, a  short route to tha coast, via Hope, over  the Kettle Valley line. The Canadian  Northern Railway will tap a particularly  rich agricultural district, and while we  congratulate this district upon obtaining  a branch of a second transcontinental  road, we take thia opportunity of also  congratulating the railway company upon  securing entry to such a fertile section,  and predict that this branch of the  Canadian Northern system will be one  of its best revenue producers.  3. That this convention wiahea to  place on record its appreciation of the  services rendered to this district by our  representative, the Hon. Price Ellison.  4. Whereas it is evident from the  report of the Okanagan Indian Agency  for 1911 that there are upwarda of 147,-  000 acres of land in the Okanagan  Agencies and that onlv 635 Indiana reside  thereon : Whereaa one.third of that  land (50,000 acres) would be amply sufficient for the uae of those Indians: And  whereas those Urge areas of untitled  Indian reserve are detrimental to the  progress of the country and could easily  support 4,000 or 5,000 inhabitants;  therefore be it resolved that we, the  Conservative Association of the Okan.  agan Electoral District, in convention  assembled, respectfully request the  Dominion government and the government of British Columbia to take such  proceedings aa may be necessary to readjust and reduce the acreage of the  Indian reserves in the Okanagan, and  that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Hon. Minister of the Interior,  Robert Rogers, to the Hon. Martin  Burrell, and alao to the Hon. Price  Ellison.  5. That the Dominion government be  respectfully requested to place Indian  reserves on the aame basis as government land* with respect to lights of way  for public roads.  Meeting of  School Trustees  Year's Estimates Provide for  New $68,000 School  The Kelowna Board of School  Trustees held a meeting Saturday  last at 8 p. m.  The correspondence included a  letter from the Superintendent of  Education confirming the Provincial Government Grant of $35,000  towards a new school building.  The following accounts were  ordered paid:  D. Leckie, Jan. supplies          -        .$ 23.16  W. Haug, 3400lbs.

Leckie, fuel and supplies, Feb. - 75.25  Mr. Thos. Lawson reported on  the result of his trip to Victoria,  which had been made for the purpose of inducing the Provincial  Government to give financial assistance to the building of a new  school, which would be very soon  urgently needed to accomodate the  rapidly increasing numbers of  children of school age. The result  of this interview wilh the Minister  of Education was the promise of a  grant of $35,000, which, however,  was made on the condition that  any new school erected was to cost  not less than $68,000. The balance would, of course, have to be  raised by the city.  The financial estimates for the  year were then taken up and read  follows;  ORDINARY EXPENDITURE  Teachers' Salaries:  Principal High School..$l500.00  High school assistant...  1320.00  Principal public school   1500.00  2nd div       1200.00  3rd div        850.00  4th div        840.00  5th div         780.00  6th div       1020.00  7th di��        840.00  Additional teacher after  summer vacation    400.00  ��� $10250.00  Secretary's salary  125.00  Janitor's sslary  900.00  anitor's supplies  300.00  Central  school   building  maintainence  50.00  Central  school   grounds  maintainence  45.00  Delegates expenses  200.00  Fuel   800.00  High   school   building  maintainence  200.00  High   school   furniture  maintainence  50.00  New furniture for Central  nd High schools  850.00  High school grounds maintainence, improvmenta. 60000  Light  25.00  Scavenging feea  150.00  Stationery  125.00  Sundries  500.00  $15170.00  The balance due on 1911 estimates,  ($163.23) added to government grant towards teachers salaries ($4230) amounted  to $4,393.23 leaving $10,776.77 to be raised  by taxation to meet ordinary expenses.  The estimated cost of the proposed new  school and grounds waa 68,000. Of this  the government wire granting $35,000,  leaving $33,000 to be raised on debentures.  On the motion of Trustee Trench  seconded by Trustee McKenzie,  he estimates were passed, and arrangements were made to present  them to the city council forthwith.  The meeting then adjourned.  Mr. A. R. Lord, principal of the  public school, will give a paper on  ' Emigration " at the Brotherhood  meeting in the Baptist church on  Sunday, at 3.30.  After the resolutions, the election of officers for the Okanagan  Conservative Association was  taken up, Mr. A. O. Cochrane, being made president and Mr. Hugh  A. Heggie secretary, wilh an executive committee constating of presidents of the various local organizations.  Summerland-Kelowna  Gymnastic Display  The opera house was fairly  well filled by a representative  crowd from Summerland and  Kelowna Friday night last on the  occasion of a gymnastic display,  held under the joint auspices ot  the Summerland Athletic Association and the Kelowna Fire Brigade.  The programme opened with  free gymnastics and dumb-bell  drill by the Summerland squad,  and waa interspersed with vocal  items by Messrs. L V. Rogers and  Geo. S. McKenzie, the Scotch  ballads of the latter being particularly well received.  Parallel bar and horizontal bar  exercises received due attention,  some clever voluntaries being performed, and were finished off with  some excellent pyramid and set-  piece woik, which drew loud  applause.  The main features of the programme, however, were no doubt  the wrestling and boxing bouts,  upon which no little public int-rest  was centred. In the wrestling  (catch - as - catch|- can style) the  Kelowna man won two consecutive  bouts, both of shott duration. In  the boxing, however, the tables  were turned somewhat. Hov and  Thompson represented Kelowna  and Patten and Campbell stood  for Summerland, senior and junior  respectively. In the junior bouts  there was not a great deal to  choose between the opponents and  the exchanges were fairly even;  1 hompson, however, repeatedly  lost a lot of time in swinging his  right when a straight left would  have placet! his rival hors de  combat.  1 he complexion of things was  entirely changed in the senior  bouts between Patten (Summer-  land) and Hoy (Kelowna) who  fought at a very fast pace. The  first rouno showed Patten's weight  to be of distinct advantage to him  and almost on stroke of the gong  Hoy received a face blow which  all but finished the fight and drew  blood. At the end of the second  round Hoy was breathing heavily  and both men were guilty of  clinching. In the third and final  round both men made a strong  effort to gain the mastery, and  some heavy blows were exchanged.  Although ihe Kelowna man's second did not swing the towell as  fast as he might have done, Hoy  had greatly recovered from the  effects of his blow, but no doubt  rests on the fact that the Summer-  land man won on points.  On Saturday the team from Summerland met a team composed of  Kelowna fellows in a rugby match  on the polo ground, and after a  well put up game retired beaten  by 3 points to nil.  Wilson Landing and  West Side Notes  (From nur  I correspondent)  Mrs. J. Porter has returned from  a short visit to her sister in Kelowna.  Messrs.

Proposed New Roads  Some details of ihe government's  extensive plan of road development in the Kelowna District have  just been made known. The rapid  settlement of the surrounding country ia creating a demand for new  highways of communication which  becomes more urgent year by year,  and although the grant made by  government for road making has  been largely increased this year, it  will take many times the sum available to come anywhere near adequately keeping pace with the district's growing needs.  The province as a whole is witnessing an unfolding of its resources which is almost unprecedented in the history uf the world,  and one of the busiest spots in the  whole of British Columbia bids fair  to be the Okanagan Valley. Every  new road which is made opens up  a new stretch of fertile country, and  brings along a vigorous call for  more.  Mr. Hereron, the road foreman,  has a busy programme ahead of  him, and some of the roads projected may not be completed during the present season, but there is  no doubt that the road mileage in  the neighborhood will be largely  added to.  Rutland is to come in for some  nf the improvement. The road  from ihe store to Wilcox's corner  is to be continued on towards  Duck Lake giving a magnificent  stretch of perfectly straight road  which will open up a great area of  rich valley at present inaccessible.  The Black Mountain road from the  store down towards town Is also to  be greatly improved, the dangerous Kills cut down and the road  widened.   This work wes started  last fall but not early enough to  finish before winter set in.  Another important road will be  a direct road to Ellison from the  corner of the old Stirling place  through Glenmore and the ranches  of Messrs. Carney, Con.oy, Christ-  ain and on to the Ellison school  where it joins the Vernon road.  The main Glenmore road is also  to be continued out to the Postill  Ranch.  Coming nearer town, the main  road is to be continued due east  through where the gate is opposite  Mawhinney's corner and two and  a half miles on to J. Brown's place  adjoining the Belgian Syndicate's  land Here a bridge is proposed  across Mission Creek which will  form a link between the K. L. O.  and Rutland benches.  Fifteen miles of new road are  also to be constructed on the Belgian Syndicate's subdivision, and  about five miles on the K. L, O.  Bench.  In the southern portion of the  district are also several projected  lines of road. A connection is to  be made with the South Kelowna  Land Co.'s property from what is  known as the Nicholson road,  which turns to the left soon after  crossing the Mission Bridge on the  South Gtvanagan road.  The estimates also include an  appropriation for the new South  Okanagan road.  Most of this new work will be  done during the present year, in  addition, of course, to the fixing up  and repairing of existing roads.

Three Months for  Defiling Grave  A case arising out of the burial  of the half-breed who was murdered recently, came up in the court  house Monday morning before  Magistrate Boyce, H J. Hewetson,  J. P., and J. W. Groves, J. P.  McDougall's remains, it seems,  were buried in an old Indian graveyard which forms a part of the  ranch of Max D. Major, near Okanagan Centre. The presence of  this burial ground is an old sore  with Mr. Major, he contending that  as the land has been crown granted  to him, the Indians have no longer  any right to use it for interments.  Some months ago he was summoned for pulling down the fences  and crosses and defacing the  graves, but was allowed to go on  the understanding that he replace  them. This new interment again  roused his ire, and he took the  somewhat remarkable means of  showing his anger by placing filth  upon the newly made grave. Upon information being given to the  Provincial Police he was arrested  by Constable Tooth, charged with  the offence and sentenced to serve  three months In Kamloops.

John Olsen, a sub-contractor at  No. 1 camp of the Kettle Valley  Railroad, chose an extraordinary  means of committing suicide last  week. He laid down, placed two  sticks of dynamite upon his chest,  ignited the fuse, and calmly waited  for the awful explosion which  ended his earthly career. The body  was literally blown to pieces. It  is understood that Olsen had been  quarrelling with some of the men  in the camp, and he had evidently  committed this rash act in a fit of  pique. He bore the reputation of  being a very agreeable man, but  had of late been drinking rather  heavily, so that there is no doubt  his mind must have been temporarily deranged.  Electric Incubators  A novel us; for electricity on a  comparatively large scale has been  devised in New Orleans in connection with a 6,000-egg incubator,  built for a professional poultry  breeder. The plant is forty feet  in length and five feet in width,  and consists of forty compartments,  each capable of holding 150 eggs,  the temperature of each being controlled separately by means of  thermostats which introduce into  and throw out of the heater circuits  resistances formed of electric  lamps.

World's Biggest Horse  What is declared to be the  world's biggest horse is now owned  by the Mack Bros. Truck Co., New  York, and they challenge the  equine universe to produce his  equal. No other horse could be  found that did not object to being  made an object ot ridicule by comparison with " Jumbo " so the big  fellow works in shafts " all by his  lonesome."  " Jumbo " is a Clydesdale and is  20J hands in height, or 6 feet 10  inches from hoof to shoulder. His  weight is 2430 pounds. He is five  years old and has spent most of  his life at Tappan, N. P., but it was  not until he was brought to the  metropolis a short time ago that he  acquired the fame and publicity  that are his by right.  His stable-male is a 2-year-old  pony that stands 17 inches in  height, and the ill assorted pair  are great friends. Because of his  willingne.=8 to pull heavy loads  alone and unaided, "Jumbo" gets  a bushel of grain a day in addition  to a liberal quantity of hay. He is  exceedingly gentle, and his own-*  ers say he is the equal in pulling  capacity of any other two horses  in their stables.

Every  modern convenience of an up-to-  date grocery store is there, or will  be there in the next few weeks. A  hew refrigerator show case, when  it artives will hold a prominent  place near the door, and will exhibit to advantage, and at the same  time preserve from dust and insect  contamination, butter, bacon, etc.  The arrangement of the stock is  wonderfully convenient and attractive, the whole of one side being  devoted lo canned and packeted  goods while the other will be given  to bottled goods and confectionery  ���including a splendid display of  chocolates, in which Mr. Oxley  holds exclusive agencies for some  of the leading Arms.  The store is well supplied with  artifn.nl light, and altogether gives  a most pleasing impression.
