APRIL 25, 1918.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  ii Important Change in  Provincial Taxation  Amending Bill Now Before  Legislature  The bill containing the government's taxation proposals (pr this  session waa introduced Friday bv  the minister of finance, Hon, John  Hart. It is intended to revise the  present Taxation Act snd equalize  the burden which has to be borne  by the taxpayer,  In regard to the farmer, proviaion  is msde for a complete new aaaess-  ment of all the real property in the  province coming under the taxation  department, and this will be made  during the summer. Upon it the rolls  for 1919 will be based. Exemption  of improvements up to a value of  $ 1200 ia given to farmers, this being  in addition to the exemption up to  $1000 now enjoyed.  Banks will be taxed as last year,  $3000 on the -chief office of each  bank, and $500 for each other office  in the province.  City and district municipalities  will be exempt from taxation' of municipal property in unorganized territory,   if  Amendments .dealing with tax  sales are proposed which will remove the difficulty which prevented  a tax sale laat year, that of having  to proceed for all arrears of taxes  up to December 31, preceding.  When property is advertised in future the whole amount of taxes ow-  will be shown, but in the event of  the government deciding that only  the taxes up to, say, the end of 1915  shall be aought an owner can save  his land from sale by paying arrears  and intereat to that date. Proviaion  "is made that a delinquent owner  may at any time .pay at least one  year's arrears with interest. Heretofore a collector could not accept  any payment unless it represented  tlie full sum "owing. In the event  of a tax sale, the lands of any  member of the allied forces are to  be withheld from eale, and the  lands of his father, mother, wife or  children, if dependent on him, may  likewise be withheld.  The minimum tax on any parcel  of real property is fixed at one dollar instead of 25 cents There are  several thousands of parcels now  assessed for less thsn one dollar the  larger number at les. than a quarter  and the expense of collection eats  up most of the levy.  Government's Plans for  Returned Soldiers  The governments plans for placing returned soldiers on the Isnd  were outlined by Premier Oliver in  the legislature Friday. The bill before the legislature, he explained,  was to give authority to reserve or  purchase lands to aid the federal  government with their plans. Outside of the Peace River district the  Dominion owns little land in Brit  ish Columbia, so the local government will provide additional lands  to what it already owns, and for  the purpose of obtaining lands,  which it is necesssry to purchase,  it will set aside hslf s million dollars.  The government's bill sets out  that lands may be reserved from  sale from time to time cr purchased ss necessary, to be subdivided  as deemed expedient. The land  may be leased or granted outright  to any aoldier or community of  soldiers,-not exceeding 160 acre,  to esch soldier, except where such,  lands arc suitable only for pastoral  purposes. The government is alsn  given power under the bill to con  vey free of cost to the Dominion  for soldier settlement purposes  such crown lands as may be found  necessary.  The people of Clinton have held  a meeting for the purpose o"f start  ing a movement to celebrate the  sixtieth anniverssrv of the discov-  ery of'gold in British Columbia.  Sir William James Bull is submitting to the British House of Commons a resolution to extend the  -Military service Act to all unmarried women between the ages of  nineteen and thirty for work of  national importance.  Work of Red Triangle  Organized Business  Its Value More Realized at the  Front Than at Home  By virtue of the value of the service performed among the Expeditionary forces of Great Britain, Canada and. in fact all Allied countries,  to say nothing of the work of humanity carried on in enemy countries, the Young Men's Christian  Association has earned for itself  the gratification of countless thousands of fighting men who have  been brought into touch with the  personal influence and helpful oversight of the " Y" secretaries in the  war theatres of Europe. A. the  commencement of the war when it  was realized that the struggle would  probably laat for at least three years  the geod officers of the Association  were requisitioned bv the British  Government to minister to the  spiritual and recreational needa of  the volunteers.  The work of the "Red Triangle"  in France and England,' in far-off  Palestine or in South Africa, has  been carried on-with such thoroughness that the service rendered is  now an organized business, it is  directed by a head office staff of  experts who are specially trained  leaders of men. The hundreds of  workers devote themselves assiduously to providing soldiers with  every possible comfort to soul and  body. Games are supplied in great  measure, these embracing football,  baseball, cricket, golf, tennis and  all of the indoor games. Under  their direction, too, music is furnished, both artificially and otherwise.  Concerts are organized and given  whenever possible, the assistance  of many world-famous entertainers  and vobalists being enlisted in this  service which in .many cases is  conducted tight under the noses of  the big guns.  The effective snd unending work  performed by the Y.M.C.A. officials  in England, France and other countries is only superficially known. It  is almost impossible for a full account of this work of humanity, so  much appreciated among lhe men,  to be detailed in a ahort article. It  is known that one new Y.M.C.A.  Hut has been completed overseas  every second weekday during the  war, many of which have been destroyed by enemy shells. In one of  the army areas in France the "Y"  has opened no fewer than sixty-  five centres since March last year.  There are now twenty-one centres  in the Saloniki area, while a centre  has alao been established at JaiTa-  the Jaffa of the Bible. Io Italy there  is a recreation hut among the  Dolomites, 8,000 feet above sea  level. The chief of the American  censoring office in France stated  recently that over half of the letters  passing through his hands told of  the great service of tbe Y.M.C.A.  Mr. A. McKenzie left for Cranbrook on Friday after spending his  holidays with Benvoulin friends.  The Parks Committee has had a  force of men engaged for the past  day or two taking out from the  streets the young trees which have  been killed and replanting with  new ones. A very large percentage of tho mortslity amongst these  young trees is due to mischievous  children, who spparently look upon  the guards placed to protect the  l rees as put there to climb on and  otherwise amuae themselves with.  Psrents should impress upon their  children the necessity for taking  care of the trees, and aid the city  and save expense by checking thia  damage. ,  Major-General Mewburn has received a cable from the minister of  oversees militia forces of Canada  announcing that no more leave or  furlough can be granted to officers  and men of the Canadian expeditionary forces serving overseas.  This is in view of the very serious  situation at the front and the absolute need of men remaining at  their posts until the crisis is over.  No extensions of leave or furlough  will, therefore, be granted, except  for medical reasons, to officers and  men of the overseas forces how in  Canada.  Forjner Kelowna  ' Hotelman Dead  Mr. A Peabody Passed Away|  . at Vancouver To-Day  By wire this morning the news  came through that Mr. A. Peabody  until recently proprietor of the  Palace Hotel here, had died at  Vancouver a few hours earlier. 11  It was only last November that  Mr. Peabody disposed of the hotel  property to the present company,  and left with his wife and son  George to spend the winter in  Southern California, His health  had not been good for aome time,  and apparently the few months  sojourn in the sunny climate of the  south failed to produce the improvement hoped for. It was Mr.  Peabody's intention eventually to  settle near his old home in Nova  Scotia, and the family only recently arrived in Vancover on their  way east. They had planned to  viait Kelowna in the course of their  journey.  No detail were given in .the  telegram beyond that the funeral  is to take place Saturday.

A request is being made by the  Benvoulin and Kelowna Red X  Societies for contributions of old  iron, wrought or csst, rsgs of all  kinds (except greasy), old rubber  (except hose), and kindred junk.  The ladies are not collecting this  for souvenirs, but will endeavor to  get enough to make it saleable, and  people are requested to have a  good clean-out and deposit the  relics in Mr. W. Lloyd-Jones' barn  on Richter street as soon as possible.  No Old-Age Pensions  Old-age pensions will not be a  reality in British Columbia for some  time to come. <  Mr. J. W. Weart of South Van-^  couver waa unable Thursday to get  his resolution adopted by the houae.  He had a bill printed and ready,  but could not induce the govern-  ment jo bring it in. Hia motion  urging that courae upon the administration got into the committee  stage, but was lost there.  Hake Big Attack on  Submarine Bases  British naval forces Tuesday car  ried out some extensive operations  against the German submarine  bases of Ostend and Zeebrugge.  Five old cruisers were filled with  concrete and sunk in the channels,  it is believed effectually blocking  them.  . The piling beside the Mole at  Zeebrugge was blown up by an  obsolete submarine filled with explosives. The French co-operated  in the raid, Storming parties were  landed on the Mole trom the cruiser Vindictive to divert the enemy  attention.  Baron von Richthofen, the crack  German aviator who had downed  76 allied machines was killed Sunday in an air battle.  Trail is to have two clean-up  davs. There is some question  whether that city can accomplish  the job in the limited time.  Cafe Chontant to  Aid Red Cross Fund  What promises to be an unusual  and exceptionally.interesting event  is to be held on Saturday afternoon  and evening in aid of the Red  Cross and returned soldiers. The  committee has arranged a programme that will undoubtedly appeal to a large variety of people.  For some weeks past a class of  young ladies has been in training  and promise an attraction of exceptional merit. The entertainment  is to he held in the Hewetaon &  Mantle block and a special stage  has been erected lor the feature  referred to. Two performances  will be given, one commencing at  3 o'clock in the afternoon and the  second at 8 p.m. In all some 35  people will assist. Among the well-  known entertainers who have volunteered their services are Mrs.  Soames, Drury Pryce, H. Tod Boyd  and Eric Dart.      ���    ���  In the afternoon tea will be  served and a number of surprises  in the wav of entertainment have  been arranged for both performances. The committee has been  very energetic and haa been most  liberally supported in their efforts  by the local storekeepers and  others, and visitors may expect to  receive anything from half a ton of  coal, a sack of flour, a pig, a aofa  cushion or a circus doll. For those  who may not secure any of the  prizes mentioned above there will  be an opportunity to obtain homemade cakes, pies and other delicacies.  The purposes for which the entertainment is being given are too  well known to need any comment.  However, in view of the great battle now in progress in France the  demands on the Red Cross organization will increase enormously  and the committee feel assured of  very large attendances at both performances on Saturday.  Mr. Geo. Chick was a passenger  to Vernon -yesterday.  Mrs. Gaddes and two children  are visitors to Summerland this  week.  Vast Issues Depend Upon  the Welfare of Our Men!  Cheer Up and Thank God for the Y.M.C.A.  TRY to picture yourself in the muddy cold trenches after  exciting days and long nights of mortal danger and intense nervous strain. Rushing "whiz-bangs" and screaming "coal boxes" are no respecters of persons. You are hit!  But despite shock and pain you still can face the long weary  trudge back to dressing station. Weary, overwrought and depressed, you are prey to wild imaginings of that other coming  ordeal with the surgeon. There are other "walking wounded,"  tool   You must wait, wait, wait.   And then��� .

Probably no part of Canada's  war activities have been so severely  criticised as that dealing with Food  Control. To the ordinary individual who has realized vaguely lhe  need for food conservation end  tried to take an interest and be of  some particular service, it hasseem-  ed that until recently the only activity has been the forming of numerous committees and appointment  of representatives and commissioners only to disband the whole thing  again in favor of some new org��n-  zation. There does not appear to  have been any lack of willingness  to fall in with some effective scheme  the only difficulty apparently has  been in devising such workable  plans and laying them clearly before the people.  During the past two or three  months, however, much has been  accomplished, and gradually the  strings are being tightened on all  channels of food waste.  The British people do not like  restrictions upon their stomachs.  As a breed we are used to being  well,fed, and any measure tending  to control our appetites is liable to  be condemned. Notwithstanding  this national characteristic, however  it is not likely that, under existing  circumstances, there will be much  objection to the regulations just announced by the Canada Food  Board.  Food in Canada should be held  in trust for the Allies. Food is  plentiful in Canada and there is  enough to go round and to spare  for the Allies if Canadians take  care. Every Canadian should be  a trustee for food for the Allies,  with the definite object of making  food an effective munition of war.  Food control in Canada means food  discipline and every Canadian  should be a disciple. Properly  conceived the purpose of the Canada Food Boatd is to induce each  individual citizen to become a food  controller, voluntarily, for if all  citizens are food controllers, then  there is food control in Canada.  Wilful waste of any food or  food products or waste resulii g  from carelessness or from imperfect storage facilities, has been  made illegal and subject to penalties by order of the Canada Food  Board. By the terms of this order  responsibility is laid upon private  citizen* to see that no food is lost  by being kept too long or kept in  improper conditions. If a private  citizen has reason lo believe that a  cold storage warehouse, store, restaurant or hotel is wasting food in  any way, he has now the opportunity ot making a complaint to  the municipal authorities with lhe  knowledge that the law is behind  him.  If the local authorities learn that  food is being held when it should  be sold for fear of spoiling, they  have only to notify the Cnnad.  Food Board. The Board is in its  turn authorised to notify the offender that the goods must be immediately sold and in default of obedience the Board itself may step in  and seize the goods and sell them.  The Corporation of lhe City  of Kelowna  TENDERS FOR STREET WATERING  Tenders will be'received by the undersigned up to 5.00 p.m., on Monday,'29th  April, for a team and driver for the City's  street sprinkler, for the months of May,  June, Auguat and September of the current year.

CUNN,  Kalowna, B.C., City Clerk.  -   April 17th, 1918. 22-3  Cancellation of Military  Service Exemptions  Appr. ximately 66,000 men will  be effected bv the cancellation of  exemptions under the order in  council approved by both Houses  of Parliament Friday. It is proposed, in the first place to call  three years of unmarried men and  widowers without children���men  of 20, 21 and 22 yenrs of age. As  a basis of computation, it is anticipated that the age declared by the  man in his claim for exemption  will be accepted. Therefore, if lhe  course is adopted, the first call will  comprise men who were 20, men  who were 21, and men who were  22 years of age between the issue  of the first proclamation on October 13, 1917, and the last day for  fiiing exemption claims under tltat  proclamation-November 19, 1917.  Mrs. Ralph Smith's Bill  The Minimum Wage Bill waa  finally passed Friday morning, Mre.  Smith's success in getting this important piece of legislation through  the house being warmly appreciated by the members, who gave her  hearty applause when the final  stage was reached.  Mr. J. W. Weart had a number  of amendments to offer, but Attorney-General Farris explained that  he did not desire to have the bill  altered in any way. He suggested  that the pleasure be given a year's  trial before amendment.  Mr. Weart was successful, how-  ever, in obtaining acceptance of one  change by which the scope of the  Minimum Wage Commission is extended to include girl workers under 18 The board will be enabled to enquire into the wages and  working conditions of such employees and can set a prohibitory mandate preventing payment of wages  lower than girls should in the  board's opinion receive.  ��� ��� o���   The imperative necessity for an  increased wheat crop this year to  avoid famine is the subject of a  special message of the Hqn. T. A.  Crerar, minister of agriculture, to  (he farmers. The acreage, he says,  must be increased and everx field  capable of growing wheat must be  planted.

The  concert commences at 8.15 sharp  and all scouts will report at the  theatre by 7.30. On Saturday the  4th of May, the matinee commences at 2.45 and all scouts will report at the theatre by 2.15. The  parade for the rehearsal and concert will be in uniform without  staves.  The troop is again reminded  that this year besides having our  own reputation to uphold we have  a provincial responsibility as present holders of the Lieutenant-  Governor's Shield. Besides having  Commissioner Heneage with us at  the concert we may have scouts  from Vancouver, Summerland and  Vernon,and we must not give any  of them cause to wonder as to  how on earth the shield happened  to come to us. The of courae applies more to general scout conduct and bearing at all times  rather than for a short period on  the stage, previously rehearsed,  but for that short period any slips  or shoddiness are very loudly advertised.  P.-L. Max Donaldson of St.  Paul's Troop, Vancouver, arrived  in Kelowna on Saturday afternoon  ast, to enlist in the services of Mr.  Hartley, of Rutland, as a Soldier  of the Soil, and to the scout who  has been in charge of meeting the  returned soldiers' trains at Vancouver, a most self-sacrificing work  the troop extends a double welcome.  We are having inquiries on behalf of other scouts who are anxious lo come up here to get on a  farm for the summer, and we  should, therefore, appreciate very  much any of our farmer friends  needing the help, letting us know  at once.  We trust that any visiting scouts  to whose notice this column may  come, will make themselves known  to us. The scoutmaster, E. C.  Weddell, at the Hewetson-Mantle  Block, or P.-L. Crowlev at the  C.P.R. passenger wharf, are available practically any time of the  day. Any local scout who meets  a stranger wearing a scout badge,  will also at once make themselves  known to him in the scout manner  and introduce him to the troop  later if possible. Let it never be  said by any visiting scout tnat he  came here wearing a scout badge  and walked around unrecognised.  Then indeed are we disgraced.  a .  a  We were all shocked and surprised to hear of the very sudden  and serious illness wich has overtaken our former troop leader, R.  Keller, at Kingston. He is putting  up a game fight against a bad attack of pneumonia and according  to the last telegram at the time of  writing, was doing better, slowly.  That he may speedily and completely recover is our heartfelt  wish.  a        a  a  The following local extract is  from the Ottawa Citizen of ihe 3rd  of April :-  " His Excellency, the Duke of  Devonshire, was present at a conference of the boy scouts held last  evening in St. Andrew's Church  hall and presented two silver life-  saving medals to' Anthony and  Leonard DuMoulin, two members  of the 1st Kelowna Troop, of Kelowna, B.C. They received the  medals for saving the life of a man  named Burne who broke through  the thin ice on Okanagan Lake, on  March 2nd, 1917. The boys along  with two cither scouts, risked their  own lives by going on to the thin  ice with a rope and dragged Burne  out. The two DuMoulin bpys are  attending Trinity College School  at Port Hope, and are spending  their Eastec holidays with their  uncle. Commissioner Bliss, of the  boy scouts in Ottawa.

Mr. Drury Pryce  was not allowed to leave the platform without an extra, and much  enthusiasm was shown when the  talented gentlemen rendered Mr.  Tod Boyd's original composition.  A welcome surprise awaited the  choir at the close of the evening  when refreshments were served by  a band of genial ladies to whom  ihe heartiest thanks are extended.  The net proceeds amounted to  over $50, whilst the total sum  raised by the choir's efforts in the  two evenincs reached the very  satisfactory figures of about $250  - A suggestion ha been mr.de  that the choir reunite in the fill,  the realization of which would no  doubt bring pleasure to Kelov na  people in general.

WILLITS & CO.,   Kelowna  Management of  Irrigated Lands  In all rotations where summer fallow is  not considered, the hoed crop year is the  year which cleans our land of weeds and  thia is also the year :o apply barnyard  manure to the land. This serves the double purpose of enritching the soil and adding humus which eventually increases the  water-holding capacity of our soils. But  we have to remember that in takes conaiderable moisture to decompose manure  sufficiently to become well distributed  through the soil, and for this reason a  short account of handling manured land  for irrigated hoed crops might help to increase yields. Where the second crop of  clover is to be turned under we prefer to  turn it under without manure, leave it  rough, and apply manure during the fall  or winter working this well into the land  as soon as possible in the spring, and then  plough the whole again. In thia way the  clover has already rotted and the extra  working of the manure has broken up the  large lumps, and leaves the manure well  distributed in the soil. For most cropa  30 to 36 inches between the rows is best.  The first irrigation after seeding the land  should be marked shallow, about 3 inches  deep, this starts percolation near' the surface where the young rootlets are located  and also helps the manure to absorb moisture and being nearer to the warmer soil  starts decomposition very quickly- With  good cultivation thia puts the soil in condition for quick growth. If the plants  have grown well the second marking  should be deeper to start percolation from  4 to 5 inches deep. By doing this the  dust mulch is not interfered with very  much, it makes cultivation much easier  and holds the moisture where the roots'  need it. The third marking should be aa  deep as possible, say 6 to 8 inches; thit  can be done by using a 6 inch plough and  marking deeply. In very dry yeara it may  take 4 or 5 irrigations to bring the crop to  matuiity. Crops like potatoes and corn  which eventually obstruct cultivation  should be given the best of care till cultivation is impossible and the irrigation  furrow left intact till harvest time. If these  crops are are planted in rows 3 feet apart  Utile or no damage will be done the roots  by deep marking.  The time to watch the soil most careful,  ly is during the hottest periods as it ia essential to keep the pi. nts growing vigor,  ously during that time so that they can  fill out during the cooler months in the  fall. The aim of the irrigator should be  uniform moisture over the entire field.  This is hard to accomplish if the length  of the run is too great. Under field con.  ditiona from 300 to 400 feet is the most  economical from a water and crop standpoint and for these two reasons we would  advise farmers to shorten up the run of  their irrigation water and the increase in  crop will pay for the extra ditching or  fluming the first year. If the run is too  long the crop near the flume su0era nearly  as much from too much water as the end  of the run does from too little.  To overcome the bogging of the land  near the outlet of the flume or ditch, run  the vater fairly fast to make a clear channel for itself and get away freely, and as  the water progresses down the row lessen  the flow till you can maintain running  water the full length of the row without  overflowing at the end. On very level  land a large amount of water can be used  for a short time, on a steep slope a small  amount of water for a long time. Under  field conditions we can often reduce the  grade of the run by putting the rows at a  larger or lesser angle from the supply ditch.  Good cultivation goy hand in hand with  good irrigation and tne best preparation of  the land previous to seeding brings down  the cost of production and increases the  yield.

It is a visualization of one of the most remarkable incidents in history���the story of Joan of  Arc, the inspired Maid of Orleans, the  martyred saint of the French nation, and  (he inspiration of the French soldiers and  the French people at the present day.  It appeals to people of every class. It  contains a spectacle second to nothing that  haa been done, with scenes such as mediaeval armies in the clash of battle and the  harge of mounted knights in armor. But  above all it contains the true story of Joan  f Arc���of her rise from the humble part  of a peasant girl to be the commander-in-  hief of the French armies and the savior  of France���one of the most wonderful  stories in all history. And interwoven with  her rise to greatness and her sacrifice to  indifference nnd superstition to be burnt  at the stake inns the-pathetic human love  story of Joan, the Woman, and her enemy  Eric Trent, the English captain.  On Thursday next. May 2nd. Madge  Kennedy who will appear at the Kelowna  Theatre in Margaret Mayo's brilliant comedy, "Baby Mine" as the second of the  Goldwin productions, has found from the  depths of her stage experience that men  laugh more easily and more whole-heartedly than women.  "Baby Mine" is Madge Kennedy's first  million picture, and she found the task of  acling it a bit arduous, because nobody in  the studio laughed.  "There are situations in 'Baby Mine'  which Misa Mayo assures me never failed  to produce a chuckle or a howl when 'Baby  Mine' was a piny." Miss Kennedy went  on. "I labored over thoae scenes and put  into them everything funny that is in me.  I he cameraman was very sad. The director looked downright sorry.  "1 thought I had bungled up the funniest  scene, and suggested that I be given another chance at it.  "'What for?' demanded the director; 'it  can't be any funnier. Now in the next  scene .'  "Directors measure their humor with a  yardstick."  Mrs. W. W-. Perry and Miss  Perry went down to Penticton  yesterday on a visit to friends.  J. M. CROFT  Bootmaker.
