 1&e-\iatyt*V  KelaUma lUcort*  VQLX.   ^0. 21.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY, APRIL II, I9I8.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Discuss Transportation  for Coming Season  C. P. R. Officials and Skipping  Men in Conference  Fulfilling ��� promise which had  been made upon a former occasion a number of prominent western C.P.R. official* visited Kelowna  last Thursday, and at an evening  conference in the Board of Trade  room met members of the Board  and representatives of fruit shipping firms of Kelowna, Vernon.  Armstrong, and other point* in the  Okanagan. The primary object of  the meeting was to talk over transportation problem* and prospects  for the coming season. Laat fall,  in the thick of the fruit (hipping  season a serious car shortage had  developed, and thi* coupled with  the imposing of aome unexpected  regulation* regarding the loading  of car*, had resulted in something  approaching a panic among*! the  different fruit and produce firm*  operating in the valley. In the  emergency general manager Coleman and several of the railroad  head* made a hasty trip through  the diatrict and effective step* were  at once taken to relieve the situation. It was upon that occasion  that an invitation was given to hold  a conference at Kelowna in order  that shippers might be fully pre  pared for what lay ahead of them.  An opportunity waa to be given  for the full discussion of any grievances Or suggestions which might  be brought forward.  The party arriving by the after  noon boat included F. W. Peters,  general superintendent, W. B. Lannigan, traffic manager of western  line*, H. W. Brodie, general passenger agent, T. C. Macnabb, divisional superintendent, W. B. Harris,  car service agent, of Vancouver,  O. C. Walker, supervisor of weigh'  ing and refrigerator service, with  the local agents of Kelowna, Vernon and Okanagan Landing. E.  Fisher, traffic manager of the  K.V.R., wa* also present.  The shipping interests on the  other hand were out in full force,  member* of local 'firms being supported by visitors which included  Messrs. C. L Lowe and E. C. Skinner of the Okanagan United Growers, D. McNair, R. Wood* and H.  Mallinson, of Armstrong.  Aid. W. J. Mantle, vice-president  of the Board of Trade, presided.  Mr. F. W. Peter*, who wa* the  first speaker, briefly recalled the  circumstances which had obtained  laat Reason, and the controversy,  which had arisen over the change*  which had been made in the regulations. While the shipper* generally had fully recognised the troubles the company were up again*)  under present condition* he felt the  reasonableness of their desire for  a better understanding before an-  oiher season opened, and before  they sent out their travellers lo  make sales of the coming seaaon's  crop. He regretted the absence  of Mr. Coleman who had been  prevented by ill-health from being  with them.  In regard to the important question of car supply, he had not  much comfort to offer. Prospects  for the coming season promised to  be no better than last year. Refri  gerator car* especially were likely  tb be scarce owing to the (till greater demand* upon them for the  transportation of meat and other  perishable supplies for the Allies  Shipper* would have to be content  with box car* at any rate until the  severe weather set in���and it would  be necessary to see that these were  loaded to their full capacity in  order to conserve car apace. Owing to ahortage of menjmd materials it was practically impossible to  do much more in the way of new  equipment than take care of the  ordinary Wastage. Though they  naturally hoped for improvement  it waa imperative that everyone  concerned ahould know the wont.  That all car* must be loaded to  their full capacity cr he subject to  refusal by the company waa the inflexible attitude maintained by Mr.  Lannigan. He did hot with to be  unreasonable, but the poaition of  the country, demanded that there  ahould be just aa rigid economy  in the uae of car* aa with food. All  must co-operate in making the moat  of transportation  facilities,   Some  Rutland News  The Girl*' Enterprise Club met  on Tuesday evening at the homaof  the preaident, Mies Leila Monford.  The United Farmer* of 'Rutland  will hold an open meeting on Monday next April 15th. Impromptn  speeches will be made and ladies  are specially asked to attend and  take part.  The Methodist Ladies Aid held  their annual meeting at the home  of Mrs. B. Petch on Friday April  5th. The officers for 1918 were  as follows: Mra. Griffiths presfdent,  Mr*. A. Cross vice-president, Miss  Lucy Craig re-elected secretary,  Mra. G. Sehell re-elected treasurer.  Mr. A. H. lohnston and family  are leaving this week for Alberta.  Mr. Johnaton has been Superintendent of the Presbyterian Sunday  School for some time and will be.  greatly missed.  Mr.   Braden   of   Kelowna, will]  speak at the Y.P.S. meeting in the  school on FridayjApril   12th at 8  p.m.  years ago when the Okanagan was  in the early atages of development  every reason ble concession had  been given the fruit industry, and  aome unreasonable one*, he felt.  The time had now come when the  low minimum* for carloads could  not be continued. In thi* matter  the company waa under orders  from the War Board of Canada,  and as a national necessity car  space must be conserved.  There was a lengthy discussion  between Mr. Lannigan and the  fruit' shippers present a* to the  minimum which could be adopted  without imposing unreasonable  hardships. Finally it was agreed  that up to October 31st the minimum load for apples and pears  should be 30,000 lbs., and after  that for all apples 36,000 lbs. For  fresh fruit or mixed cars of fresh  fruit and early vegetables the minimum's were fixed at 24,000 lbs.  and 30,000 lbs. respectively, up to  October I at, the minimum for potatoe* or oniona wa* to be 30,000  lb*., and after that in box car*  45,000 lb*., or in refrigerator car*  the full visible capacity of lhe car.  Other minimums were to remain  as at present. These figures were  to be subject to the reasonable  loading to full capacity, and inspectors would be on duty to see that  this was done.  No promise of any change could  be secured in the regulations governing the lining and heating of  box cars.  PENTICTON   BOAT  CONNECTION  These matters disposed of Mr, L. V.  Rogers on behalf of the Board addressed  Mr. Peters on the old grievance of the  lack of connection between the morning  train and boat at Penticton, urging the  great advantages to be gained in mail and  passenger service by the desired rearrangement of tha schedule.  No new assurance, however, could be  obtained in regard to thia matter, though  Mr. Brodie stated that the Company waa  very delirious on itt own account of arranging the connection, and it wat ttill  under consideration.  Aaked if the xompany intended increasing its space for car ttorage in Kelowna,  Mr. Peters stated that additionl to the  trackage wero to be made thit year, not  neceeeerily for our ttorage but to afford  greater facilities for twitching tnd handling.  A promise wat also aeeured to look into  the matter of telegraph aervice, with a  view to avoiding the necessity at present  existing of messages from Kelowna for the  eaat having to go to Vancouver and ba relayed from thero.  In reply to an enquiry Mr. Brodie ttated  the matter of aheap ratea for harvest helpers from the coast wat being discussed  and ha hoped to be able to make a defin.  ite announcement in a few days.  Replying to a vote of thanks to the visiting officials, Mr. Lannigan aaid they were  glad to meet tha shippers in thit wag and  appreciated the spirit in whieh they, had  been met, It wat not a pleasant thing to  take arbitary action, but theer necessity  compelled them to it.  Personally he had always taken a great  interest in the 'development of the fruit  and vegetable industry in the valley. Last  year over 3000 cara had baa shipped, yet  he remembered when it had been a mat.  tor for congratulation when 100 cara had  been ahipped from the valley. There waa  undoubtedly a great future before the  diatrict. and when conditions again became  normal, he'predicted a large increase in  settlement. It wat not to ba expected  that auch a large area of feitUeland could  be neglected. The reputation of tha  Okanagan apple waa becoming established, and paopfa in far eastern Canada were  asking for it. Thit wat tha finest fruit  district Canada had and he wat glad to  tea it develope.  It was a late hour when tha meeting  broke up, tha visitors .ponding the night  rt tha hotel and leaving by the boat la the  momlatj for tha north.  Meeting of Patriotic'  Fund Committee  Ladies' Committee Added to  Local Executive  The committee of the Kelowna  branch of Canadian Patriotic Fund  met Saturday afternoon and ad'  journed until Tuesday evening,  April 9th, in order to allow absent  member* and the general public  to be present.     ^^^^^^^^^^  After the reading of the minute*  Mr, DuMoulin aaked for nomination* for officer* for the coming  year and the following gentlemen  were elected: Mr. J. W. Jones,  M.P.P., preaident, and Mr. R. E.  Denison, vice-president. The appointment of Mr J. R. Beale as  secretary-treasurer by the city authorities was confirmed and an Investigation Committee, consisting  of these three gentlemen together  with Mayor D. W. Sutherland and  the Rev. E. D. Braden was ap  pointed.  Mrs. S. M. Gore was elected  second vice-president for the special purpose of talking charge of the  Ladies' Entertainment Committee.  Mr. W. McEwan and several ladies  kindly consented to Set on the executive committee and were duly  elected. The membership of the  ladies' sub-committee is a* follow*:  Mesdames S. M Gore (convenor),  P. DuMoulin, C. A. Butler,' W. C.  Duggan, L. V. Roger*, W. J. Leit-  head. B. Hardie, M. K. Stubbs, W.  McEwan, G. Barret, A. Johnson,  and Misses Reekie and E. Anderson.  The tone of the meeting waa  bright and keen throughout, the  presence of the ladies and the evident interest of all partie* presaging well for the work to be accomplished during 1918.  Votes of thank* to Messrs. P. B.  Willits & Co. for the. loan of an  office, and to the Press and  sec  National Service Girls  For Fruit Harvest  The provincial Department of  Labor ac'ing in conjunction wilh  the Y.W.C.A., have now made definite arrangement* with Mis* Gertrude Perry, Dominion Service  Secretary of the latter organization  to undertake the taak of organizing  women and girl helper* for farm  era and fruit grower* and other  induslriea throughout B. C. Tin  plan* are now almost matured, ao  far as the machinery for the regis  tration of ihe girls is concerned,  and it is understood that there has  been a very ready and enthusiastic  response from these "National  Service Girls" as ' they are to be  called. The next step ia the placing of them where they will be  needed, and application forms are  being sent out to farmera and  others who niay require help. A  supply ia in the hands of the local  secretary of the Farmers' Institute  and anyone interested should communicate al once with him. These  forms are lo be filled out and relumed to the deputy Minister of  Labor at Victoria.  brought the meeting to a close  East Kelowna News  The East Kelowna Red X ladies'  tea held at Mrs. E. M. Carruthers  waa very successful, 43 members  being present. Acknowledgment  is made with hearty thanks for the  kindness of Mr. F. H. Gilmore and  D. L. Chapman for driving the  ladies up in their cars.  Miss Whitehesd returned to her  home in town last Monday by the  East Kelowna stage, after spending a week with Mrs. Benmore.  The East Kelowna Red X sale  held last Saturday in town well repaid the ladies' efforts, no less a  turn than $433.95 being railed,  which will be turned over to local  headquartera. Great praise is due  the ladies for the work accomplished, and they in turn take occasion  to heartily thank all worker* and  supporter* for their generous assistance.  ��� *> ���  There are two essential things  which should be impressed on the  minds of people in Kelowna when  an alarm of fire is sounded. The  firat is to avoid all unneceaaary delay by aaking of questions from  telephone exchange after the first  alarm ha* been sounded. Centtal  is busy notifying the firemen and  lhe partiea concerned in the fire  and ahould be given the benefit of  the first few minutes.  Ar other essentisl matter that the  people ol this city must keep in  their minds is to shut off all water  faucets and hydrants aa Boon as  the fire alarm ia sounded. The  drain on the aervice mains is considerable and often the pressure is  reduced by these escapes. '  J. S. McFarron, of Portland, Ore.  was thrown fror a wagon and  killed because the learn o! former  fire engine horses he was driving  apparently mistook the clanging  gong at a railroad crossing for a  fire bell. McFarron who was an  employee of the city park bureau,  was driving on the Powell valley  road a few miles from Portland.  When the horses ran away he wa*  thrown own and died almost at'  once from hi* injuries. The wagon  ���truck a telegraph, pole and was!  demolished, but the hone* continued to run until they came to a fire  hydrant, where they stopped of  their own accord.  Benvoulin Notes  Through the courtesy of Mr. W.  W. Grummet the Grummet Hall,  Benvoulin, has been placed at the  disposal of the Benvoulin Red X  Society. In the future all meetings  will be held there instead of at the  homes of members.  Mr. A. M. McKenzie is spending  his holiday* at the home of Mr. E.  A. Day.  The Rev. Mr. Bales who for aome  time haa been aupplying at Bethel  Church ha* returned to hia home  in Summerland and the Rev Mr.  Johnaton of Merrill is expected lo  lake the charge,  treasurer   for   services   rendered,]    Mrs.,Marshall and daughter have  arrived from the prairie lo lake up  their residence st Benvoulin, Mr.  Marahall having purchased the  Kinnear property. Mrs. Marshall  is at present the guest of Mrs. Har-  greaves.  Mrs. McClure entertained a few  friends on last Friday afternoon.    o  Mrs, Jean Muldrew will, speak in the  Board of Trade room' to-night. Ladies  cordially invited.  East Kelowna Raises  Money for Red Gross  There have been manv efforts  made locally on behalf of the Red  Cross, but none lhat have created  ���o much interest or have proved  ���o successful as the sale held Saturday by the ladies of East Kelowna. Apparently these same ladies  are possessed of a wonderful talent  in the art of needlework, judging  by the wonderful array of pretty  and useful goods which were laid  out for sale, and an abundant  energy, too, for the store near the  post-office was tlje scene of a wonderful display. There was no lack  of helper* and the sale was a centre of animation all through the  day.  The total receipts reached the  large sum of $433.93.' One young  gentleman, who was attired as a  Red Cross nurae, did a roaring  trade in flaga and tags, and added  considerably to the takings by his  efforJ:;.  A doll's houae fitted up by one  lady and raffled brought in $21.60,  and the same lady made $7.20 by  selling Easter egga.  Altogether the affair wa* very  successful and the ladies are to be  congratulated upon the results of  their labora. The proceeds are to  be handed to the Kelowna Red  CrosB.

Mrs. J. L. Macready returned  yesterday wilh her baby from the  coast, where the child underwent  an operation.  The great War Veterans' dance  is being arranged for Friday, April  26th. Further announcement will  appear in next week's issue,  Coast Canning Co.  Erecting Warehouse  A feature of interest at the present time to lhe farmers of the district ia the warehouse being erected on Smith Avenue by lhe Broder  Canning Company Ltd. of New  Westminster, which has contracted for over 300 acres of tomatoes  in the valley this year. The building will be forty feet by a hundred  feet, by twelve feet high, and is being constructed by a local contractor, Mr. J. Harris, with local materials, under the supervision of Mr,  R. L. Hunt, representative of the  company. The warehouse will receive the tomatoes from the farmers, shipping them in carloads to  the factory at New Westminster.  Payment it to be made for tame each  week. A sufficient tupply of boxes will  be oh hand before tha shipping season  begina.  Mr. Hunt expects to ba here again as  soon as the strawberry seaaon ia over at  the coast, in order to take over the management of tha warehouse.  Last Fridav evening at the parsonage on Richter street, John  Wilson (Wid) Thompson, son of  Mr. and Mrs. Geo. E. Thompson,  was married to Miss Mildred Sturgeon, also of Kelowna. The Rev.  E. D. Braden officiated. Attending  the bride was Miss Jean Murray,  whilst Mr. Jss. McEachern acted  as best man. The ceremeny was  a quiet one, the only other persons  present being Mr. and Mrs. Thompson.  Mr. Geo. C. Hay, district agriculturist at Kamloops, a well-known  authority on sheep breeding, and  a director of the Canadian Wool  Growers, Ltd., newly formed tor  the co-operative marketing of wool  is aV> be in Kelowna on Tuesday  the 16th and will address a meeting in the Board of Trade et8 p.m.  All interested in sheep should be  present.  The fire brigade were called out  last Saturday at noon to a blaze  which had stsrted in the dry grass  on the old Knox property east of  the Presbyterian Church. The  cause was a rubbish fire which had  got beyond control*���the second  fire from a similar cause in the  past two rveeks. A word of caution  in watching carefully all such bonfires which are common at this  time of the yesr might be in order.  Our Allies Must Be Fed  DESPITE war -conditions, we have not as yet felt the pinch  of hunger in Canada. Consequently, it is difficult for us  to realize the grave need for increased food production in  order that others may be fed. At no time is Europe self-supporting  In the matter of food. After nearly four years of war, our Allies  are living from hand to mouth, depending entirely on the safe  arrival of food ships from across the Atlantic.  Because of our comparative nearness to our Allies, and because  of our wide, fertile areas, this continent must continue to feed  Europe. If we fail, hundreds of thousands of people may starve  and our armies be denied a conclusive victory.  A bumper crop, a record harvest and increased meat production in Canada  will be worth the winning of many battles to the Empire and our Allies at  this critical period.  Increased Production Imperative  Canada must raise for export at least 250,000,000 bushels of wheat more in  1918 than in 1917, to enable the Allies to maintain even their present  restricted rations.  They shall NOT starve I������  make that your slogan.  Plans have been formulated which,  on the authority of The Director of  Agricultural Labor, positively ensure that  1 ibor will be. provided  when needed, to harvest the maximum crop. Authorities agree that  the world-wide shortage of food will  continue for years after the war.  The farmer is assured a ready and  profitable market for all the grain  and meat that he can produce.  Tha Empire depends on the Canadian Farmer to "carry on.'*  CANADA FOOD BOARD  %  Chairman f AGE TWO  KELOWNA RECORD  Thursday, April I Ith, 1918  "    PROFESSIONAL AND    ��  ���*       BUSINESS CARDS      "  BURNE & WEDDELL  Barrister,  Solicitors and  Notaries Public,  G.

W. Jones, took occasion to make an urgent appeal  to the House for outright government ownership of irrigation systems, a step which would give the  greatest possible impetus to settlement and development in the dry  belt, and do awav with the present  unsatisfactory conditions. The present bill, he said, waa not in any  sense a remedy, and would cast  all the burden upon the grower,  resulting in a water rate which  would be prohibitive.  No more important bill would  come before the House, said Mr.  Jones, who pointed to the fact thai  the question of irrigation is a vital  one at this time, owing to the demand for increased production.  He outlined the great importance  of irrigation in other countries, and  referred to the enormous amounts  spent upon great systems and to  the beneficial result therefrom,  results which would be duplicated  in the dry belt ih British Columbia  were the scheme systematically  carried out. He paid a glowing  tribute to the agricultural wealth of  the Okanagan, and pointed with  piide to the fact that while the  growers have many drawbacks to  contend with, the district last year  shipped products of a value of  $2,500,000., ���  Mr. Jones' gave a brief outline  of the development of the irrigation  problem in that section, referted  to the large investments of capital  in various systems and to the subsequent difficulties of the companies through financial stress, difficulties which forced some of the  concerns to cease operation, to the  serious detriment of the water  users. About $16,000,000 in all  had been iuveated in orchard lands  in the nine ridings comprising the  dry section. Any scheme the gov.  ernment brought down would affect  that investment. Up to the out'  break of the war there had been  no great trouble experienced by  any company. Most of them had  floated bonds in England and the  investors felt secure of their investments. When the war broke out  some of the iirigation companies  lost their sinking funds in financial  failures, leaving the users in a serious position; for they had to meet  their pnyments for land purchased  government taxes and increased  cost of supplies, labor, &c. further,  strong competition in the prairie  market developed between the  Okanagan and the United States  for fruits. In 1916 the late premier  had visited the diatrict and promised a policy of government  ownership if the then opposition  were put in power. So far little  had been done by the government  to implement teat promise. The  present Minister of Lands admitted  he approved of the policy, but  claimed little could be done. Instead he announced the policy  would be one of " the Lord help  those who do riot help themselves."  Apparently, then, the crater users  could not hope to see anything  like government ownership brought  into being.  Legislation brought down last  year bj the present government  Mr. Jones stated, hsjflfclone little to  remedy matters. Kst year the  Minister of Lands had visited the  district and had apparently tried  "to shoot through." but finally he  was induced to etav awhile, and  the water users had urged upon  him the necessity ol the govern  ment Acquiring the systems and  operating the main canals and main  distribution systems The minister,  Mr. Jones declared, had'shown  deftness in putting off ,he growers  with indefinite answers, such as  telling them to possess their souls  in patience. The only solution was  for the government to take over  the water systems. The bill before  the House with its 62 sections,  only made more confusing the  legislation already more than sufficiently confused. "Tinkering with  an utterly unworkable act," was the  way some of the growers considered the legislation now before the  House, he said, quoting from letters he had received from the  Okanagan section.  Mr. Jones doubted if the bill  would meet the situation, and he  suggested it would have been better had the Minister discussed the  measure with some one who reallv  knew the situation. Had that been  done the Houae would not have  had the spectacle of half a dozen  amendments on the order paper  before the bill had received its  second reading.  The bill, he asserted, gave no  protection to the companies, which  realize that they will be wiped out  and are making no claim, but was  it wise, he asked, to also wipe out  the innocent bond holders? Such  action would have a very detrimental effect upon future investments in the district. The water  users who have had .to wait years  for returns on their investments should receive every consideration from the Government, he  urged. But the bi|l merely took  the systems from the companies  where such concerns could not  carry on and placed the -burden  upon the shoulders of the water  users for further extensions. The  half-million conservation fund proposed by the bill would doubtless  cost a high rate, and if the same  rate were charged to growers that  is charged for farm loans, water  users would have to pay from 7J  to 8 per cent, and, in addition to  the cost of management, etc., would  have to provide sinking funds. All  these factors would materially increase the water rates, perhaps from  $8 to $12 per acre. In the United  States it waa conceded that over  $8 could not be met by the grower.  What did the Government propose to do with the companies at  Kaleden, Peachland and Naramata  which had gone out of business?  This was a question the growers  there wanted to know. At present  the Government was spending  about $250,000 on roads in the  ridings in the dry belt, but unless  something more definite was pro*  posed in connection with the irrigation systems that expenditure  would be useless.  Mr. Jones declared a great future faced the section if the Government would take over the systems,  some of which could be amalgamated. A Government-owned system under a conservation board  would pro'ect the bond-holders  and conserve the rights of the  water users. He also advised the  purchase of Indian reserves in the  dry belt, a step which would help  to care for the returned soldier.  ment and we must not disappoint  them thia year with any second-  rate performance. We cannot do  our best unless all rehearsals are  punctually and regularly attended  bv all. The tickets will be given  out for sale about Wednesday the  24th and prizes will again be given  for the moat sold. The prices will  be the same as last year, 50c for  everyone on Friday and 25 c for  children at the matinee and 50c  for adults.  Mrs. DuMoulin is leaving for the  east and regrets being unable,to  be present, but before going has  very generously donated $5 to  troop funds. vVe thank Mrs. DuMoulin very much for her kindness. Scouts Anthony and Leonard  DuMoulin were presented with  their silver crosses last week at  Ottawa by the Duke of Devonshire.  We hope to give particulars of the  ceremony in a later column. Sccuts  Godfrey and Jack Groves will be  presented with theirs at the con-  cert by Commissioner Heneage,  and he will also present all badges  won since Christmas, so get busy  on these.  We also wish to thank Mrs. Sinkinson for the gift of two mattresses to the troop, which will enable  us to practise our pyramids and  tumbling for the concert without  breaking any bones.  Orders for  Local  Scout  "���� PRCPARBO'  Kelowna Troop  Troop First;   Self Last  We have up to the present always hud to record acts of kindness to the troo - and none of the  other kind, but now it is our painful task to mention a moat despicable act ef the latter description.  We did not' know we had any  enemies in town but apparently  we have. Before Christmas and  during the holidays some members  of the troop under the supervision  of Mr. Mitchell, went to a great  deal of trouble and made a bookcase to contain our library. The  case was varnished -and looked  quite a nice piece of work but one  evening last week some local hoodlums decided to change ita appearance somewhat. Armed wilh a  chisel, apparently, they broke into  the case, chipped the edges of the  doors wherever they used their  chisel and smashed the lock. We  have not yet checked up the contents of the case to know if any  books or anything was taken, but  it was a most wanton work of destruction.  The exhibitii n building > where  we play basket "ball was broken  into several times last winter, and  we know by whom. We can make  some allowance, however, for boys  who cannot resist the temptation  to play basket-ball, even though  they have to "housebreak" to do  it, but we cannot intake any allowance for acts such as the wilful and  unnecessary damage to our bookcase. ���  We should have been very pleased indeed to show anyone who  was so curious to know what was  behind the locked doors of our  case if they had only asked. However, we do not intend this act to  be overlooked and it is possible  the Industrial Home at Point Grey  may shortly have one or more inmates, who will there be taught  something a little more useful than  how to damage the property of an  organization whose object in existing is to help others.  The dumbell squad of Cubs is  to meet on Saturday at the school,  at 2 p.m. sharp and will then march  to the scouts' clubroom for practise  with the piano. Latecomers are  Not Wanted. .  Edited by Pioneer.  April 9, 1918  ORDERS by command for week  ending April 20, 1918.  DUTIES: Orderly patrol for  week Wolves ; next for duty, the  Eagles.  PARADES: The combined troop  will parade at the clubroom on  Wed. and Fri, the 17th and 19th  inst., at 7.15 respectively, and  again on Saturday the 20th, at 2.15.  Any basket ball games will be by  arrangement during the week.  s ���  -    ���  ���  The dates for the concert have  now been dehni'jly fixed for the  evening of Friday, May 3 with a  matinee on Saturday afternoon  following, at the picture theatre.  There ia therefore, very little time  for us to get ready and every scout  must now attend all parades regularly and punctually. All parties,  dances, bunfeeds, trips into the  country, fitc, must step down to  second place, and the troop in  reality must occupy the place it  holds in our motto. It is fair to add  that with some members of the  troop it has always held this place,  but with others only some times,  and with others, apparently never.  The public have always been good  in supporting our annual entertain-  LAND REGISTRY ACT  Re Block 35, Map 462, City of Kelowna  NOTICE is hereby given that I shall at  the expiration of one month from the date  of the first publication hereof ittue a Car.  tificate of Indefeasible Title to the above  mentioned landa in the name of the Royal  Trutt Company (Truttee) unless in thi  meantime valid objection it made to rae  in writing.

As the  name indicates, the programme  has been arranged to give greatest  prominence to the work of the  choir, tbe members of which, numbering fifty voice-, have been carefully chosen and under the admirable training of Mr. H. Tod Boyd,  have- the music well in hand. The  excellent list of part songs which  \ will be rendered -includes such  numbers as: "The Miller's Wooing" (Faning), "In. this the Hour of  Softened Splendour" (Pinsuti), "O  Peaceful Night" (German), Oh I  Who Will O'er the Downs so  Free ?" (R. de Pearsall), "The Song  of the Pedlar" (Lee _ X'illiams),  "Daybreak" (Faning), "O Happy  Eyes" (Elgar), "O Hush Thee My  Babie" (Sullivan), "The Long Day  Closes" (Sullivan), The Boatman's  Goodnight" (Schira), and the "Intercessory Hymn" (Ed. German).  Mr. Drury Pryce is down for a  number of violin selections, including an original composition by Mr.  Tod Boyd.  Vocal solos are to be given by  Mrs.' Trenwith, Mrs Braden, and  Mrs. L. Hayman.  The. sale of tickets will be limited to the seating capacity of the  church, and as there has already  been a heavy demand, those who  would avoid disappointment  should make application for them  early enough. The choir members  are requested to return cash and  any unsold tickets they may have  on Mondey evening, when the  dress rehearsal is called for 8 p.m.  Mr. Tom Duggan was a passenger Monday for Halcyon where he  will make a stay in the hope of  improvement to his health.

Owing to the date'of the choral  concert in aid of the Hospital and  Red X falling on the 16th of this  month it has been decided to postpone the regular Board of Trade  meeting to the 23rd.  In response, to an enquiry re  clover and alfalfa seed huller, Mr.  H. O. English writes that he expects that this machine will be  available for use-in the Kelowna  district this year, and he hopes that  many farmers may save alfalfa and  clover for seed and make use of  the machine. Alfalfa Nitro-euiture  will be distributed in 1918 as in  the past at 25 cents per bottle, each  bottle containing sufficient culture  to inoculate sixty pounds of seed.  Miss H. H. Montgomery of the  Revelstoke teaching staff paid Mrs.  Kincaid a short visit returning to  Revelstoke on Saturday.  Next Sunday morning in the  Baptist Church the Rev. W.

The visit of the C.P.R. officials  has not been without its result, for  the palatial structures which serve  as depot are receiving a fresh coat  of kalsomine. 1 he local authorities, however, deny that it has anything to do with the officials, and  is just ordinary apring cleaning.  Pte. McGarrity left Monday to  report at Vancouver.  Mr. J. W. Currie returned Tuesday morning from a visit to Alberta. It is with regret that we  learn that Mr. Currie has now decided to leave Kelowna and move  with his'family to Calgary He is  at present busy packing and expects to leave early next week.  Mr. A.

Annette Kellermann  the famous swimmer and movie  star dives from the cliffs, is thrown  into a raging torrent, with hands  and feet bound, and dashed against  the rocks by the waves, rides to  battle in heavy armour, and performs other feats without apparent  injury. Her hair-raising activities  furnish moat of the thrills.  The production has been rightly  named a fantasy, for it deals with  mythical creatures lo whom the  changing of crocodiles into swans  and the bringing of the dead to  life is a matter of little importance.  The film appeals to that side ofthe  audience which lives in dreams and  the imagination. In fact, the fore-  word of the producer is an invitation to become children, who are  wiser bemuse they live in a world  of their own making, lhe spectacle would be entirely impossible  of reproduction on the stage, for  only the camera can create the necessary illusion and capture the  wide horizon, which gives the play  its fascination.  The producers have wisely chosen the Far East as a setting, thereby gaining an almost limitless supply of colorful costumes, bizarre  scenes and . Oriental aplendors.  Necessarily the drapery of the  human form is at times scanty, but  only the super-sensilive can find  any fault with the artistic handling  of these scenes. Creat pageants  hosts of armed men, the deatruction  of the Sultan's city and glimpses  of the world of gods and fairies  furnish almost more splendor than  the eye can grasp.
