JULY 12. 1917.-4 PAGES  $1.30 Per Annum  Fortnightly Meeting  of City Council  Council Asked to Endorse Bill  for Conscription  The city council held its u. ual  meeting Monday with. Mayor  Sutherland and Aid. Buck, Harvey, Duggan, Rogerson*, and  Rattenbury present,  included in. the correspondence  -was a letter Irom Aid. Millie,  urging the council to pass a resolution iavonug conscription iu  Canada.  "Due to my illness,'-' Aid.  Millie wrote, "I have been unable to attend to the duties oi  the council lor some time, hence  1 am writing to request" tne  council to put itself on record  gs iavorable to conscription ol  Canadian manhood to support  the splendid men who voluntarily went to the iront irom tue  city and district, Let me ask  you to put a resolution through  favoring conscription, and thai  a copy be sent to bit Koucrt  iiorden without delay. X regret that X shall be unable to  be present to speak to this, put  X ieel that the least the council  can do is to -encourage the X're-  iiuer and show that we appreciate the eiioiis oi our men at  the iront in lighting lor our Utterly as well as that oi u..  nations." lhe letter concluded  with ihe hope that the memueis  ol the council might have many  years oi useiuiness m Uus peau-  tuui city ol ours.  1'olio wing the reading ol the  letter Aid. Auiiie catted up the  Aiayor on the phone and luriher  urged ins request. H  It seemed to be the general  feeling, however, that as the  conscription bill had already  made considerable progress  through the House, and seemed  certain to pass into law, it was  not necessary lor the council to  record its approval. It \...  suggested that instead a litter  of congratulation be sent to the  Premier upon the success of the  measure.  A report was read from, the  building inspector recommending the removal of certain buildings which had been partly destroyed by lire, und the repairing  of others which were dangerous  in their present condition.  Mr. li. McDonald, of the II. C.  Growers, Ltd., waited on thc  council in connection with the  new building which they .were  erecting on Ellis street. He  had several requests to make,  the lirst being that the council  should permission to the Okanagan Telephone Co. to string  the wires for four phone connections on the city poles, ihus  making possible the removal of  three telephone poles which ware  an obstruction to the building.  This was agreed to.  The next request that thecoun-  cil take steps to close a uack-  age right-of-way, did not linl  the council so favorably disposed. The trackage way in Question ran across the corner ol  the lot upon which the B. C.  Growers are erecting lucii wait  house, and it was desired to  close up the track lu order to  ' square up the building, Mi.  McDonald contended that the  trackage was not in use c'nd net  likely to be, and its dosing up  would avoid the ,.ulting oi! i.i  an ugly corner from llioir U'ild-  ing.  The members of lite cctscil,  however, with-rat except ion,  took the view that 'he r losing  of the right-of-wiy might inflict  a hardship upon owners 6i property which lmVht possibl .��� in  vears to come be serve) i;v tl-at  particular trrrek, and thetcfue  were aver* to miking any  change.  The question of s.ilnry n.lvan-  ces for city eujiloveVc ranie un  again for discussion, due to the  reported dissatisfaction of tw  of the power house staff. Tt was  apparent, too, that there was  considerable conflict of opinion  amongst the aldermen themselves;, and after some little dis-  Military Service Bill  Will Seon Be Law  Passes Second Reading by Big  Majority  The second reading of the military service bill was passed early  last Friday morning by a majority  of 63, the figures being I 18 to 55,  after the Laurier amendment calling for a referendum had lost on  a vote of 11 I to 62, and tlie motion for a six months' hoist on a  vote of 165 to 9. A third amendment proposed by Mr. A. B. Copp,  of Westmoreland, deferring consideration of the bill until allow-  anc��s to tbe dependents of soldiers  are; increased was also defeated,  the vote baing I I 5 to 55, n government majority of 60.  Not much difficulty is anticipated  in connection with the passage of  thc bill through the senate when  it reaches the upper house at the  end of this week. Three government supporters from Quebec,  Senators Landry, Beaubien and  Montplaisir, are expected to oppose the bill, but on the other  hand it will get considerable support froin Liberal members of lhe  senate.

The fire which broke out Sunday  last on Knox Mountain draws attention forcibly to the need of some  definite arrangement regarding the  appointing of a fire warden for the  district. Although the season of  greatest danger is almost here it  appears that as yet, beyond the  appointment of a fire warden in  Vernon, no provision has been  made to protect this part of the  valley.  Up to the present time thc Kelowna district has been especially  fortunate in avoiding anything like  a serious outbreak, but this happy  result lias only been attained by  the utmost care and attention of  the officials responsible. Within  a short distance are many large  areas of heavily timbered hills,  amongst which a serious fire could  cause 'tremendous havoc. These  hills, too, form part of the great  watershed upon which our irrigation water.supply depends, and denuding them of timber by fire  would mean that instead of the  winter's snowfall being conserved  for irrigating purposes, it would  disappear rapidly with lhe first  hot sun.  It may be granted, of course,  that the needs of the province at  the present time call for economy  in public expenditures, but to leave  a district like this without adequate  forest fire protection might easily  prove to be costly economy. It is  obvious that a warden in Vernon  with a huge territory under his care  is very little use to us here. Sunday's fire, for instance, which a  watchful warden might have extinguished at its commencement,  'cost a good many people a hard  day's work and nearly rendered  several people homeless. If it had  got over the hill into the heavier  timber the result would have been  still more disastrous.  Mrs. Kemp, of Vancouver, who  has charge of the movement to  supply women and girls as help to  the Okanagan growers for fruit  harvesting, was in town yesterday.  She has returned to Vernon, where  a large number of the helpers are  due to arrive, but will return to  Kelowna again thia week-end.  Any orchardists desiring assistance  should lose no time in getting in  touch with Mrs. Kemp,  Cooling  Effervescents  IF you are troubled with Heal Rash,  Hives, Pimples, or nrty Skin Eruption, any of the following Effervescent Salts will greatly relieve it:  Health Salt- - -   25c  Grape Salt   - - 50c fit 75c  Fruit Salt - -      75c fit $ I  Sodium Phosphate, 50c fit $1.50  Magnesia Citrate, 25,35c,60c,$l  P.

July 7th, 1917  ORDERS by command for week  ending 21st July, 1917.  There will be no troop parades  during thia week, but this does not  mean that the different patrols  must remain inactive. "We hope  that each patrol will have at least  one patrol camp on its own of a  day or two's duration, as they are  expected to do thia. In (net if we  thought that there would be no  separate patrol camps we would  not have a paid cook for the  troop camp. We are very fortunate in having Sam with us as cook  again this year. He was very busy  on the ranch which ha has under  lease at Okanagan Centre, but the  Scout Call was strong enough to  bring him away. We are all eating  about three or four times as much  as we do at home, so the cook is  kept very busy. We only hope  that we shall not have to put on  another concert before we are able  to meet our creditors. We have a  long list of friends to thank for  sending us down things and helping out in other ways, whom we  shall particularly mention next  week after the camp is over.

I  believe that there are no better sol-  lien In tha world. Anyway, I cannot Imagine any better." So said a  Nova Scotia officer belonging ta a Toronto regiment In speaking to a representative ot the London Canadian  Gazette of the conduct ot his men at  Vimy Ridge. "We were on the right  of the Canadian Corps. We went into  jpoBltlw on Good Friday night and  ���went Into the assembly trenches���  these wero Just craters���on Easter  Sunday. The men were supremely  appy at the prospect of attacking.  he Joyousness and excitement of tha  attalton were something I shall never  target. Shortly after daylight on the  onday morning we witnessed the  ost marvellously Intense barrage ws  jad ever seen. It lasted for three  Intimites, and then the battalion went  lover the parapet. We ran Into ma-  johlne-gun and rifle fire from the Oer-  iman line, but our men never for one  Instant wavered.  "It was absolutely magnificent to  see them. The extended line went  ateadlly forward. I found myself wondering what It was that impelled men  to go right Into firs like that. I think  the answer Is to be found partly In  the spirit of the men, which was wonderful, and partly in their perfect dis-  tclpllne. Do you know that the discipline of the battalion is such that we  fo sometimes for three months without any charge against any of tha  men worth talking about being entered up. I cannot tall you much about  the actual capture ot the Ridge because I was bit about live times after  we started, and again ten minutes lat-  |ar. There are two outstanding features of the day left in my mind. One  ,1s the behaviour of the men which  no words can ever describe adequate-  it; and the other Is the numbers ot  (Germans without arms wandering  about unescorted. I think I must hav*  seen quite 1,500 of them. They simply quitted their trench as soon as our  men got there, and were sent back to  our lines us prisoners', and so ready  were they to surrender that they cam*  along In batches without any escorts."

The  purpose of" Mothers in France "  is to deliver a message fiom the  courageous women of the French  Republic to the mothers of the  other allied nations.  The French government is part  owner of this historic masterpiece,  and. it was under the auspices and  special permission of the government that Madame Bernhardt was  permitted to enter the front line  trenches during actual warfare for  some of the scenes reproduced on  the screen. Timeliness, its historic  value, its wonderful war scenes  and the international fame of the  star, combine to make " Mothers  of France " an ultra special attraction,  A fire started, it is stated, by  some careless young campers, to  the north of Knox Point near the  Dundas place, spread in the high  wind of Sunday until it assumed  rather alarming proportions. For  a time it was confined to the dry  bush and thin timber on the south  side of the hill, but later in the  afternoon it descended the slope  and soon a lively young prairie  fire was going on the flat land  east of Sutherland's bay. A party  including Mayor Sutherland himself, Mr. Dundas and provincial  constable Graham worked hard  during the early part of the afternoon to keep the fire in check and  to prevent its apreading to tbe  heavier timber above, and to a  great extent they were successful.

Although Mr. Blacknell, who  enjoys a great reputation as a  pianist and vocalist, has hitherto  commanded a very much higher  salary than any church community  here is ever likely to afford, still  considerations of health, coupled  with the fame of our glorious  Okanagan climate, outweighed all  else, and caused him to throw up  a lucrative connection in Colling-  wood for a new home in the Orchard City.

Pravlnc.s tu th. olden days.  a says: Th. revival ot wooden ship-  niidliig recalls to mind a great nuni-  irer of Canadian public men wlio-wer.  shipbuilders la the early days. The  first four Ministers of Marine und  Fisheries in Canada were shipbuilders and ship owners. Hon. Peler  Mitchell, one of the fathers of Confederation, built ships at or near  Nuwcuslle in his own county of  Northumberland, New Brunswick.  The next was Sir Albert Smith, a  former Premier of the Province,  who, though a lawyer by profession,  built and owned a good many ships,  and accumulated thereby a substantial fortune. The third was Hon. J.  0. Pope, of Prlnoe Edward Island,  who was ii praotloal shipbuilder, like  bis father. Then came the Hon. A. W.  McLean, afterwards Lieutenant-Governor of Nova Bcotla, who, with a partner, built a number of ships at Oreat  Village, In bis own county of Colchester.  Some Other Build.rs  Among other shipbuilders who  were In public life one could mention,  Hon. John Lefurgy, Senator Yoo,  Capt. Walsh, Lieut. Governor and Senator Howlau, and Hon. William Strong,  of Prince Edward Island; Mr. Moffat,  of Restigouche, N.B.; Hon. Robert  Young, of Gloucester; John A. Covert,  uf Suubury, and Mr. Murchie, of Charlotte; Hon. Joslah Wood, later lieutenant-governor of New BrunBwlck, formerly member for Westmorland; Senator Muirhead, of Northumberland;  Cuius Turner, of Albert County; ths  Troup family, of St. John, and Georg.  F. Baird, of Queen's County.  Nova Sootlan List  From Nova Scotia one might mention such men as James W. Carmich-  ael anil the MoGregor's,. of New Glasgow, Plctou County; the Kitchens,  McKenzles, and McLsllans, of River  John; the Primroses, the Ives, tho  Yorstous, of Plctou. The Hon.

WETTEST PLACE ON EARTH  Town  with  Average   Rainfall  of  600  Inches a Year  "It Is a remarkable fact that In In  dia, one ot the most arid countries In  the world, there Is one spot that has  the record rainfall of the whole earth,"  said Dr. William Roberts, Brlllsh uerl  cultural expert In Indlo. "This place  Is Cherapunjl, in Assam. It is in tile  path of the monsoon and lu a vullej  and there is almost constant rainfall.  The average rainfall Ib 000 Indies ��  year, or 60 feet, which Is nearly u foot  a week. This seems almost beyond  comprehension when It Is considered  thut the rainfall or lhe United States,  for Instance, ranges from 111 Incites  to 36 inches, lu some places there  have been as high as 66 inches oi  water In a year, but this is the exception. During the rainy season in Cher-  upunjl the waterfall Is Heaviest, but  there Is rain throughout thc year.  Notwithstanding this terrillc moisture  the Inhabitants of the district raise  vegetables and grain. They do this by  building terraces which carry the wat  ei off."  DRY LURE FOR TROUT  hflnts   to   Beginners���Practice   Quick  Retrieving and Strike  For learning a prompt strike when  using the dry lure It Is suggested thut  tlie novice frequently practise his ami  and wrist in the endeavor promptly to  retrieve his line. This should be done  even when no trout has shown Itself  or any offer has been made at the  feathers. Let the angler who desires  to train his arm for a prompt recovery of the line Imagine that a trout  Is making an attack on the fly.  At such times of practice let him In-  Btantly and with decision and vigor  snap back the tip of the rod to the  perpendicular. Whenever an opportunity seems to ssrve let him follow this  practice. There are places In every  stream where the angler meets with  no encouragement and pushes onward.  Before he presses on to new water the  angler can give a little attention to his  strike. And he should do this whenever a floating lsaf or twig near Irs  "fly attracts his attention. If he earnestly trains his arm to respond quickly to his mind he will be somewhat  prepared for an actual attempt lo hit  tha rising fish.
