Pupils  Prizes Offered for Best Adver  rising Cards - Hospital Jumble.  Sale and Merchants' Dollar Day  November 18th  Tha great success which attend,  ed the Hospital Jumble Sale and  " Dollar Day " last year has encouraged those responsible to organize  a similar event this year. At a  meeting of the Merchants' Association held last Friday the proposal was discussed and it was decided to fall in with the request of the  hospital committee.  In order to still further popularize the day it was decided to hold  a competition amongst the school  pupils for the best window card  advertising the day. ' The competition will be divided into two  classes, one from the high school  in which three prizes will be given  and the other for the public schools  (including country schools) in  which also three prizes will be  given.  The size of the card is to be 14  by 22 inches. Suitable card for  the purpose has been provided  and can be obtained from either  the Record or Courier offices for  five cents per sheet, which amount  will be returned by the Association to each one handing in a completed care.  Each  card  must   contain  the  words-  Saturday  Kelowna Hospital  Jumble Sale  Merchants' Dollar Day .  November 18th. 1916  This wording may be added to  or varied aa desired, but must contain the essential announcements  as given.  The competitor is given an entirely free hand as regards arrangement, decorations, tec. The object  i<to produce a card which wjll  furnish an attractive window advertisement for the Jumble Sale  and Dollar Day.  Effectiveness, advertising value,  good drawing, color harmony and  originality will all count in the  awarding ofthe prizes. ���  Cards must be completed and  handed in to the school principal  not later than Thursday, Nov. 9th.  All the cards will become the  property of the Merchants' Association and will be auctioned off  to the merchants for their windows,  the proceeds, after pay prizes, to  go to the hospital.  An appeal is also being made to  the public to bring in goods for  the jumble Sale. In the midst of  all the appeals for money which  are being made just now the hos-  . pital is in danger of being forgotten. Bring in anything and everything you can and let it be turned  - into money to support the local  institution. Parcels as before may  be left with the McKenzie Co..  Willits & Co., in fact any of the  merchants will see that they find  theproper place.  The various stores are making  arrangements for special attractions and bargains for that day  and will make announcements  later.  _--���o-    On the fata day of King Albert  of Belgium, Wednesday, November 15th, the .schoolchildren of  Ellison will present scenes from  " Alice in Wonderland." The entertainment will be held in the  schoolhouse at 8 p.m., and the  proceeds will be given in aid of  the starving children of Belgium.  Mr. S. G. Shallcross, adjuster for  the insurance companies interested  in Sunday's fire, arrived on Tuesday's boat and has been busy ever  since investigating the various  claims. He considers that the Fire  Brigade are to be highly commended for their success in keeping so  serious a fire within the limits of  the building destroyed.  Mr. Alsgard received a letter a  few days ago from an old Kelowna  boy at the front, Eric Partington,  who ia " somewhere in France."  He makes. mention of. several of.  the boys from the district whom  he haa met over there, and sends  his kind regards to friends here.

The firs was discovered about four  o'clock Sunday morning, but although  the brigade.soon arrived on th* some  end strove with) all tjhe means esthete  disposal to gain control 'of th* fire.  the terrific gal* which was blowing up  from the southwest, mad* their efforts  for a tun* almost futile. The fire apparently startediin the southwest cornet of the building, aod had gained a  considerable hold before it was discovered. .Running upwards it soon had  tha whole of thai top storey in a mass  of ilame*.  Ure. Baymer, with her two daughters  Winnie and Ruby and younger son,  Willie, wero I sleeping in the upstairs  rooms, and had a narrow esoape. But  for the fortunate circumstanoe that  ladder happened to be standing under  th* 'manhole giving aooesa to the tool,  they might have bean trapped by the  fire. The first intimation they had of  trouble waa a strong smell of smoke,  and going out.into tha corridor they  found the smoke pouring up from th*  hallway below. The young boy Willie  was,-at. once despatched to givo the  alarm. He found; |t impossible to get  down the stairway Awing to the dens*  smoke, and went up through thoiroof,  making his way down to the fir* hall,  where he roused up the boys in charge.  Meanwhile Mrs. Baymer and the two  girls, seeing that the smoke wa* getting thioker, and being startled moreover by a terrific crash at the rear of  the building, hastened to asesnd the  ladder to the roof, not stopping even  to dress. Thus thinly dad, and in  th* teeth of a bitterly, cold wind.they  mad* their way over the roof* as. far  as the Leckie block, and descended to  a lower level with th* aid of a ladder.  From the roof of Leckie's warehouse  to the back lane they wore assisted by  somo Chinamen, who helped to set a  ladder by which they descended.  When they reached Water street they  met by' Mr. W. Haug, and it was in  his house that. thoy took shelter and  have been oared for sinoe. Mrs. Baymer suffered severely for a time from  th* effects of the smoke in which she  waa almost suffocated, and MisaWmni.  sustained a sprained ankle in scaling  the roofs.  The first blasts of the syren were  rendered almost inaudible by tha roar  of th* gala, and it was not until a  second alarm had tywi aounded, aided  by tlie- hooter of the a.s. Okanagan,  which wa* lying at th* wharf, that  people began to turn out. The task  which confronted the brigade was a  tremendous one, for the roof ��ai already atatate from end to end, and  soon after fell in,, sending showers of  sparks and blazing fragments on to  adjacent buildings, and driving ia .a  north-easterly direction almost to the  limit* of tha city.- It it said vhat no  less than twerrtfy-fty* or .thirty sop ���.rule  Urn were started) by these 'fragments,  but fortunately extinguished withcut  doing any great damage, r  For a time it seemed ns if the Oak  Hall on the opposite aide of Water  street must inevitably become involved  as It was, in tho direct | nth of n.e  wind, felt strenuous effort* on the.part  of the brigade and ot Mr. T.

For <k time the.  whole town was lighted up with th*  glare, the flame* mounting high into  the 'air.

Augustine, district engineer of the Water Rights Breach,  who has been in charge of the  Okanagan district for some time is  n,ow taking a course in military engineering at the coast.  The Summerland Telephone Co.  is being sued by the Okanagan  Telephone Co. for damages for interfering wjth the latter company's  poles,'and for an injunction to restrain them from doing further  damage and to compel them to  restore the line.  The C.P.R. is issuing a special  tariff allowing Okanagan apple  shippers the privilege of storing  apples at prairie pointa and then  reshipping them at through rates.  This will relieve the cer shortage  and help the apple growers, for  there are no storage facilities in  the Okanagan. This is a temporary arrangement.  Members of the Biptist choir  will please note that at the kind  invitation of Mr. and Mrs. Knowles  practise will be held at the residence on Glenn Ave., east of Capt.  Knight's, to-morrow night.

Their pony took fright at  a bicycle and ran away upsetting  the buggy and throwing both occupants out. Mrs. Neumeyer sustained a fractured wrist and was  badly shaken, while Mr. Neumeyer injured his shoulder.  Mr. W. H. Crswford wishes to  thank the Fire Brigade and all  helpers for their efforts on his behalf during Sunday's fire. He has  rented a store for the meantime in  the Keller block, end expects to  have a new stock here in time for  the Christmas trade.  Mr. L. Godbolt, of Winnipeg,  who is jointly interested with Mr.  W. F. Muirhead in the firm of  Muirhead Ar Co., arrived Tuesday  to go into matters connected with  the Sunday fire. Mr. Godbolt is  the owner of the Harvard Shoe  Co.. of Kamloops, and has besides  interests in eeveral shoe houses in  the west. In consultation with Mr.  Muirhead it was decided not to replace the stock here in Kelowna.  Th* only portion, of the building  whieh wae not reduoad to unrecognisable ashes was the front part of  Muitrhead^s and Crawford'j stores, und  a small amount of ealv.ge i. expected  born these. Everything els* wss totally destroyed.  The heaviest losers ar* Messrs. Law-  sons, Ltd., whoa* .U..H and fixtures  were valued at over tTO.OOO. Only  recently the new stocks of men.* and  ladies' wear for the season's trooo  arrived, and some of it had Scarcely  been unpacked. The whole stock was  completely destroyed. Insuranse to  th* amount of: $47,000 was carried, so  that the) actual loss will be very  greet.  Messrs. Muirhead <V Co. valued their  stock of boots and shoes at 113,000  to! $14,000, and carried |D,50O insurance. This is the second trim* Mr.  Muirhead has been j burnt out, ho having had the misfortune to be in th*  great Pernio fire some seven or tight  years ago.  Crawford:* book store held a large  and valuable stock of stationery.ollioe  supplies, books, gramaphones, etc., besides ' a recent large shipment of new  toys for the Christmas trade. The  loss is estimated at six or sovon thousand dollars, while insurance of (2,500  was carried. It is less than a year  sinoe Mr. Crawford had his horn* destroyed by fire.  Th* Mason!- Kiaoh Co. had four  pianos destroyed, besides a large a-  mount of /mus o rolls and other supplies. Their loss will be fully covered by insurance.  For the second time within ten years  the Masonic Lodge has suffered the  loss of all its furnishings and regalia.  The , Masoni* Hall,, thc large room  over Crawford* store, suffered badly  in the fire, and all that is left of the  handsome furnishings is a mass of  charred and broken fragments. The  contents of the safe, including most of  the books and records were fortunately preserved intact, though the sale  fell through to the ground floor. The  total loss of th* lodge will reach  about I140P, with insurance of 11,000.  Tha recently formed Royal Arch Chapter also bemoans the loss of all their  new regalia, though the value of it  was partially insured.  The Oddfellows and Bsbekah Lodge*  which also, used the Masonic Hall for  their meetings, lost practically everything, and only a.few half-burnt fragments of their books were saved. The  whole of the regalia was oi course  destroyed. The Oddfellows had (760  and the Bebekahs 1200 insurance,  which is far from covering the actual  loss.  The destruction of the Kelowna Opera House, which was one of the finest)  in the'interior, is.in some,respects a  public disaster, and .it is hoped that  steps will be taken at an early date  to remedy the loss. The entire equip  ment ef moving picture machines,  stage fittings, and soenery were totally destroyed. Since the death of the  late H. W. Baymer, the management of  of the Opera House and moving picture business has been in the hands of  Mrs. Baymer and her daughters, and  much sympathy haa been expressed for  them in their loss which was unprotected by insurance. Mrs. Baymer  and family n<so loot the whole of their  household goods and clothing, no  time having boon .given them to save  even the smallest thing.  Telephone service was seriously interfered with for Several days by )h*  burning out of some ninety feet of th*  big main cable which unss down the  back lane serving all thc user* in that  block.and beyond. As Boon as it became apparent that the cablo had suffered damage, and before the fire was  out, Manager Hubbard got in touch  with the.' Vernon a}ffioe, and in the  space of a few hours men were down  with equipment for making repairs.  The new piece was spliced into place  by Tuesday, and the service resumed.  In addition to this tho Telephone  company had five telephones destroyed  and a 'large quantity of wiring. Their  Iobs will probablv amount to about  S300.  Thecity pole line also suffered considerably. When the front wall of the  Opera House- fell, the Hght polo at the  corner of the lane also came down,  bringing with H two heavy taansfcrm-  Rutland News  (rTrwa sss sn Oorrssooi4ssrs.l  The young son of Mrs. J.

He has lately had the good fortune  to sell out an interest in a copper  mine at Hope at a good figure.  The results of the collections for  the British Red Cross made bv the  Women's Institute are as follows:  Methodist church $4.95, Presbyterian $.60, and the box at (he  stove $5.45, or a total of $17.

Mr. Hunt is at present on overseas  service.  era -. and a tangle of wir ng. As a  considerable number of wires were carried on the polo, there were many  peoplo who had to return to coal-oil  for a day or two.  The fire brigade worked with a will,  and their efforts deserve the highest  commendation. Several times the  men handling the hose were placed in  positions of great danger from falling  brickwork, and in at least on* in-,  stance when the frost of the Opera ]  House collapsed, some of them had  narrow escapes. j  The loss of this fine block of build-!  ings, whioh was. one of the most imposing in the city, and occupied a'  location in the very heart of the bmsi-1  ness section, is greatly to be deplored.  Tho loss is doubly unfortunate at this  time of difficult financial conditions,  and not only in the destruction of so  muoh valuable property, but also  the v temporary, interference with, so  many (businesses and institutions at a  very bad time of the year. Tempor-1  ary locations, however, have already  been secured by most of those con-,  corned, and it is undorstood that steps  are being taken to rebuild as quickly  as possible.  The Baymer. block was completed in  1909 by the late Aid. H. W. Baymer,'  to    replace    an old wooden structure  which formerly occupied the site.   O   Business Men Meet to  Discuss Fire  A number of business men and oiti  aens met together Monday morning in  the Board of Trade room to discuss '  conditions , arising out of the recent  disastrous fire. Tho meeting was more  or less informal, but it served to provide/ an opportunity forthe voioing of  various opinions concerning the fire,  and the desirability of taking more  adequate .precautions to prevent another such disaster. The greatest  sympathy was expressed for those who  had Buffered lost, in the fire, und ) articular ly for Mrs. Baymer and family,  who had loat almost all they posfxws-  ed, and had barely escaped with their  live*. The fin* character and public  spirit. of the late Aid. Baymer .vas recalled, and it was felt that if onlv out  of respect for the memory of a valued  citizen | who had done so muoh for Kolowna during his long residence here,  some steps should be takes to assist  Mrs. Baymer and family, and to reinstate them in the business in whioh  they were earning a livelihood.  The following i resolution was curried  unanimously: "That the citizens and  business men of Kelowna desire to  express our sincere' regret and Sympathy with the different individuals  and firms suffering loss from the disasA  trous fire on Sunday morning, and  hope that eaoh land all of them will  decide to remain in Kelowna and to  resume business in their several lines.  They are all men that this community  can' ill spare, being very desirable  citizens and good business men, and  very active in good works fc. sonnet-  W.D. Harvey Passes Away  Friday  The death took place last Friday at his residence on Bernsrd  Ave., of William Duncan Harvey,  a highlv-respected citizen of Kelowna for many years. Mr. Harvey,  who had reached the advanced  age of 76 yeare, had, been in failing health for some lime past, although he had been able to be  about, and was a familiar figure  on the street on fine days, especially at boat time, he being fond of  making his way down to thewhaif  to witness the arrival and departure of passengers and lo meet  with friends for whom he always  had a pleasant word.  About a month ago he caught a  severe cold which later developed  into pneumonia, causing his death  after some days of great suffering.  The funeral took place Sunday  afternoon, and was attend, d by a  very large gathering of people  fiom all over the district. 1 he pall  bearers were Mayor Jour s, Dr.  Gaddes, and Messrs W. R. Trench,  D. Leckie, Chas. Faulkner, and  Chas. Downing, all of whom had  known the deceased back in Saskatchewan. There were numerous  floral tributes. The services were  conducted by the Revs. A. Dunn  and E. D. Braden.  Deceased, who came of Scotch  parentage, waa born in 1840 near  Hamilton, Ont., and followed the  business of a farmer there until  1883, when he joined the tide of  settlement which had begun to  move westward, and settled near  Sintaluta, Sask. He had some hard  struggles in those early days, but  finally his patient woik was rewarded and prosperity hegan to  smile upon him. In the spring of  1907, his family having grown up  and the boys begun to leave the  old home In seek their own fortunes, he was persuaded to come  to Kelowna to enjoy a well-earned  rest after his labors.  He is survived bv his wife and  a family of four sons and six daughters. William is wilh the B. C.  Growers in Kelowna, James is on  the engineering staff of the Vernon power houae, John is farming  in Alberta, whilst Charles is at  Shorncliffe with the motor transport service. Of the daughters,  Maggie, Ethel, Winnie and Nettie,  are in Kelowna, and two are n.ar-  ried, Mrs. A. B. Lnlimtr, of Can-  more, Altc and Mrs. S. J. Cunie,  of New Westminster. All were  present at the funeral.  Floral tributes were given by lhe  following: His daughters nnd sons,  Ml. and Mrs. J. Harvey, snr., Mr.  and Mrs. A. B. Latimer, Mr. nnd  Mrs. J. Harvey, jnr., D. Leckie aid  family, Mrs. and Miss Perry, Mr.  and Mrs. B. McDonald, Rebeliah  Lodge, I.O.O.F. Lodge, office slaffa  of B.C. Growers and B.C.Evaporators, employees B. C. Growers,  o   Mr. R.

We would especially mention our sincere sympathy  with Mrs. Baymer, who has lost every  thing, including her home, and would  commend her condition to thesympnth-  etic consideration of all in this community."  The fire brigade came in for. much  commendation for the splendid work  they had done in fighting the fire, and  it waa' resolved "That the thanks of  this meeting be tendered to the Kelowna Fire Brigade for their successful  efforts .in controlling the disastrous  fire in the Baymer block, under the  'very adverse conditions of high wind  and the exteneive grip the lire had attained before it was discovered."  A good deal of discussion also took  place as to fire fighting equipment  needed, and the'meeting was assured  that the lcity council.! waB attending to  this matter.  The desirability of having a night  watchman for tbe' oity was also discussed, and the wisdom of having  dropped the practice of employing such  a man was very muoh questioned. It  was ��� pointed out that the cost when  spread over a large number of business houses would be very small in  comparison with the loss of projierty  which might'be prevented.  Representatives of the different business firms involved in the firo were  present, and all were unanimous in  their    praise of the work of the    Ere  __________ PAGE TWO  KELOWNA   RECORD  THURSDAY, NOVEMBER and,,  KELOWNH RECORD  Published tvary Thursday at Kelowne,  Briti A Columbia  JOHN L*EATMLEY  Editor and Proprietor  subscription bates  ��� 1.50    per    vt'��r;    7fi<\,    six    month*.

GILLETT'S LYE  EATS DIRT  i.  0 discharged    ..ill have six month*  f/ipfc    Tftf wn'cn to be refcs&en on the strength  Tlie disastrous fire which occurred last Sunday morning cam.,  an almost uncanny corroboration  and support of the hint given tu  the city that greater " prepare,  ness" in tlie matter of fire-fighting  appliances was an urgent nece*  sits. It is true that previous to Sun  day at any rate, in spite of tin  numerous outbreaks which have  occurred, few of our files have attained any magnitude, and, generally speaking, they have all been  controlled and extinguished without any great danger to surrounding property or the city   at   large.  Thanks for this are due to the  fact that from its first real org ini-  zition some years ago, we have  had a brigade which has thrown  itsalt enthusiastically into its woik  without any thought of person.il  sacrifice, and which has attained a  proficiency which tew towns of  this size can boast. But when we  look back over the fires which  h.ive occurred during the last year  or two, we must admit lhat luck  has been largely on our side. Absence of high wind or some other  fortunate condition has prevented  more serious consequences, and  the" if" has been big enough to  give us a false sense ot security.  Splendid an the Fire Brigade has  always been, however, they can  not perform the impossible.  Though an energetic body of men  can do wonders with even a primitive equipment, their limitations  are made very obvious when they  have to face a conflagration of the  magnitude of the last one. We  tremble lo think what might have  happened had one or more of the  smaller fires caused by the flying  sparks developed into more serious ones when all the available  force and equipment was needed  to cope with the terrible raging  furnace in the Raymer Block,  Who would have handled another  one and with what ? The lose of  property was bad enough as it was,  but only by the nearest hair's  breadth did we escape an infinitely  greater one.  We have no intention of pointing out faults in the present equipment or even suggesting what further appliances should be provided. That can be better done by  those who have given .thought and  study to the question. But we would  like to emphasize the fact that  great as is the present need for  economy, to skimp in such a direction is dangerous to a degree.  Does Church Union Mean  Giving Up Rights  oi Congregation?  Thore has been a greatly renewed  agitation going on in the papers lately on tho subject of "Church Union,"  and in view ol this the following explanation ofsouic of theiBfilient points  will no doubt interest local ohurch  goers.'  When Church Union comes, will the  old calling systodi disappear, or will  present relationships between minister  and congregations be interrupted'  Both will bo conserved. The utmost  caro will bo'taken in every department  of tho work, to retain tho practices  now prevailing in tho different der.nm  mations.  What is the'arrangement proposed?  Congregations or ministers ilarriring n  change, apply, through the Presbytery  to the Settlement CoDunitto*. Th*  changes sought will ordinarily be made  nt the end of tho Church or Conference  rar.  In anticipation of n vacimry at fie  end of the year a congregation may  call or invite any mlnintir of th.  Church, nnd may r-.lbinlt < Iho." mime*  if their first requ.it jir.not he p uit-  ed  If it is found impossible to isBue the  matter at the end of tho year, u lur-  thor period not yet fixed will be allowed during which a call may be  issued.  But to guard againBt long and injurious vacancies, if a congregation  fails to take action at the end of this  further period, tho Settlement Committee is empowered to make an appointment. But as at the end of any  year application may bo made for a  change, this appointment, if unsatisfactory to cither party, may then  come up for review.  If on account of death or some other  emergency, a vacancy occurs during  the year, Presbytery shall'confer with  the charge and may thereafter arranger  a supply to the end of tha year.  It is important to remember that  existing arrangements will not b* interfered with. Though a way of  making such change* as are neoosaary  iB provided,' it is expressly staled that  there is to be no time limit to the  pastorate.  Tho whole arrangement <n thoroughly  democratic.

The Acting Commissioner, also  commented upon it while herejand toM  you that it waB one of the, finest  Scout mottos he had ever met. But  he also milled our attention to th*  fact that we were rnot' living up ;to it.  So, Scouts, let us try hard from this  on to improve ourselves for the sake  ot the Scout brotherhood.  I am sure all of us who had the  pleasure' of meeting' Mr. Heneag* must  have been greatly struck with the  great interest which he takes In our  work. He brought home to ,us many  truths i about ourselves as Scouts, and  showed that we can improve. His  appeal to the Patrol leaders to be  leaders in more tnan name, I trust  will bear fruit.' After the meeting of  Patrol Leaders on Monday night, he  expressed himself as highly satisfied  with the Scouts who had lieen given  the responsibility of leading their  Patrols.  The slacker's "Day" has dawned:  Instructions are hereby given that all  slackers must repass th.

Kelowna Tfoop must  advance, and must win the Lieutenant-  Governor's shield.  Mr. Heneago's visit did us a lot   of  good, and personally: I learnt a great  deal about the Scout .brotherhood and  am prouder than ever that I belong.  0  Tho trade and commerce department  at Ottawa haB received from the committee on financial facilities for trade  appointed by tho British Board of  Trade a memorandum outlining the  committee's, recommendations lor a  trade bank ,for tho Empire.

Domihic Jack, with his wife  Louisa, Indians from over the lake,  and another lady of the same persuasion named Azelle Simpson,  were in trouble last week in the  city. Notwithstanding the restrictions of the law on the matter,  they managed to get a generous  supply of fire-water which ihev  inbibed with dire results. The two  ladies were discovered Wednesday evening in the Woodlawn district, sitting by the roadside and  making the night hideous with the  Siwash equivalent for singing.  They also quarrelled and rent the  air with indiscriminate vituperation. The neighbours objected and  phoned'for the police, and they  were transported in a buggy to the  lockup. Later Mr. Jack was added  to the collection, also the worse  for his' indulgences. Brought before the magistrate Dominic had  to pay $20 and costs and his wife  $10 and costs. Miss Azelle Simpson was found to be an old offender and was sent up for a couple of  months.  C. Nicoll  Dray and Transfer Agent  Phone 132  Will move you quick and cheap  Mr. L.

Mr. Neil Gregory received word  during the week of the death, at  Oak Bay, Victoria, of his uncle,  Senator Macdonald, at the age of  84. He was one of the early pioneers of the province, coming out  from England 65 years ago, in a  500-ton sailing ship which took  six months for the voyage. His  father was Major Alexander Mac  donald, of the Isle of Skye, who  served through the Napoleanic  wars with great distinction. After  a varied activity in Victoria he was  c ilied to the senate in 1870, retiring  three or four years ago.
