These bridges are another illustration of the immense  amount ot material and labor neoessary in conducting modern warfare.  Fruit Situation  Manager Robertson Replies to  Critics���Growers Decide to  Stay with Central  A ruga number of Pentioton grow-  era turned out last Thuraday ovening  to attend the public meeting held in  Penticton, and hear explanations of  the 1914 dealings of the Central belling Agency. The returns last, year  wen extremely disappointing to the  Pentioton growers, and a great deal  oi adverse criticism had been heard  from ihe south 'end of the valley, both  of R. Robertson, manager of the central, and ol the general Policies approved by the executive.  The central was represented at the  meeting by Mr. J. E. Reekie of thia  city, to whom, and to the Pentioton  Herald we are indebted for the following particulars, by Mr. Robertson,  manager, and by R. Wood of Armstrong and Egbert Trask of Oyama,  directors ot the central.  The Penticton growers, it is reported  though still expressing bitter disap  pointment over the low prises obtained last year, realised at the close of  the meeting that the low returns were  not due to lack of effort on the part  of the management, but rather to a  glutted market, demoralised trade, unfair competition, and a general condition of business resulting from the  war in Europe.  The meeting was presided over by  J. Anderson of Pentioton, president of  the onion at that point, and was attended by more than 250 people, who  listened until after midnight to the  explanations- offered. Mr. Anderson  urged discontented growers to speak  out and voice their grievances frankly. Ho said that though the central  had originally been formed to save the  large share of returns taken by Ihe  . middlemen that the markets wore still  being reached bv the old,trade channels, whioh, with the expense of tht  oentral, left less than a living wage  for the growers.  Mr. Reekie spoke next, and assured  tha growers that the oentral had done  their beet to obtain arood prioes during ths last two years. That the returns had been low he admitted, nnd  said he himself could have made itioie  money in 1914 bv selling through private connections, citing his prunes  and plums which though mostly No.  1, brought him less than 10 cents a  box. Mr. Reekie referred tr. the deal  made early in the Bnrlng for handling  Okanagan fruit and produce in tho  markets, and said that but for tho  war he believed it would have vrrked  out beneficially.  When war began, he explained, the  freight and insurance jumped, nnd the  export trade was out' off. both on the  west and tho eaet roasts by the cov-  ernment seising most of the '��">- liners.  As a result .markets were nuickl,' flood  ' ed'with fruit, fnr Ontario and ether  eastern fruit nrodnoinn sections had  their trade to T*urooe snoilod. end  nnd rushed to the nrnirie m��rkajts. as  did the associat-ons oiecvitino an the  United States.

Another Kelowna citizen passed  away this week in tbe -<erson of Jas.  Wilson Sanders, who died Monday afternoon, after an .illness extending over some three weeks.

In comparison with  last year Friday's meeting wue dull  and characterised by an almost entire  absence of hostile criticism.  Although there hod been a :tood dial  of street corner criticism of the council  for the high taxes and so forth' none  of this waB raised nt the meeting, and  none of thc new candidates f-.ir otlioo  presonted themselves, with the- exception of Nurse Port, who'was ruin  for school trustee. *  Mr. D. Leokie was voted to the chair,  and in opening the meeting he stated  that he had been requested to reverse  the usual order of the speeches. Here-  tufore the counoil had always spoken  first, and by the time the school trustees were making thoir addresses the  audience had struck for home. He  would therefore call upon Mr. Bigger  as chairman of the school board.  J. A. BIGGER ON SCHOOL  MATTERS  Mr. Bigger said he d.d not need to  remind tnom tnat conditions had vny  much changed since they met ihere a  year ago to taut over municipal matters, ihoy had been very optimist c  and had anticipated having to increase  lhe teaching stall but instead the manner ot scholars had decreased by 01) at  the end of May, and intiead ot increasing tbe staff it had been nectssary to  reduce it. Financial conditions had  alao nocame somewhat strenuous, and  they had done their best to practice  the most rigid economy in all their  expenditures. Instead of reducing taa  salaries of the teachers, said Mr. Bigger, the board had, on the advice ot  Inspector Anste adopted the plan ol  reducing the staff and leaving the salaries as they were, a course which had  been followed in most of the provincial schools. At the same time they  had given notios to the teachers that  salaries would not be advanced as the  schedule oalled for, and added  it might be necessary before thia year  waa out to reduce salaries, but that  would be a matter for the new board  to consider.  Notwithstanding the fact that this  had been a somewhat strenuous year  and the staff of teachers had '..o be  reduced, the school had lost none ol  its efficiency, and he thought he could  say without any hesitation that 1914  bad been perhaps the best year thejt,  had ever seen.  He made special reference to the  magnificent results attained at the  midsummer examinations, and regrett  ed the loss of Mr. A. R. Lord to whose  oredit largely these successes ware due.  He spoke of the engagement of Mr. R.  P. Richardson, who he said had already given splendid servioe and they  were assured by the inspector that the  sohool was doing good work in every  department, and that they oould expect the same splendid rejults this  vear as they had last.  Coming to the question of finance,  Mr. Bigger stated that their estimates  at the beginning of the year had provided for an expenditure of 118,000,  and a rate of 0 mills had been levied  to produoe thia sum. Owing however  to the policy of economy, there had  been a reduction of aotual expenditure  to lees than 816,000. There was also  sufficient coal on hand to nearly last  out the winter and $600 worth ol  school supplies for the coming year.  He saw no reason why the rate this  year' should not be reduced from six  to four mills on the dollar. (Applause)  Mr. Bigp-or then read some extracts  from the provincial school inspector's  report, which stated that the peneral  equipment of the sohool was satisfactory. With attractive grounds and  modern buildings there was no reason  why tbe best work should not be done.  SANITARY ARRANGEMENT  CRITICISED  The report went on to say, however,  "The only disquieting feature is the  temporary sanitary arrangements,  which are inadequate and disgraceful,  and a serious menace to the health  of the community. Strenuous methods  must be taken to bring to the attew  tion of the proper authorities the responsibility for these conditions,"  Comjnention upon this strong criticism Mr. Bigger said that when the  sohool had Been built the council had  advised the most temporary sanitary  arrangements on the understanding  that the sewer would be built to the  school in 1914. Re had approached  tho oounoil from time to time in regard to the matter, but of course  they knew the reason why they had  not got the sewer���the money was not  forthcoming. He said they had a  sewerage system which had cost tlOO,-  000 and cost 12,6*00 a year to operate  and tha only connections were    three  hotels, a few business blocks and resi  dunces, it seemed to him ihit even  though it meant the expouait'iro of a  little more money, a brancn *.,wur to  the school should be put in ihis y.ar.  (Voioei "Will you furnish ihe money'") "No", said Mr. B'cger. "1  would not if I could, but I th nk th:re  should be some way of getting it."  (Voice: "Tell us how!") "No, 1 can  not, replied Mr. Bigger. Large  amounts of money he contended haU  been spent on streets and light nnd  water systems, ond while these tilings  wore proper in their place, they dwindled into insignificance whtn tliov con  siderod the health 0( the boys cn i  girls of tho city. (Loud minimise ) ii���  expressed tho opinion that the mam  being spent in the park on relief work  could be better employed laying a  sewer to the public school.  il�� expressed his appreciation of the  work of his follow trustees, .with whom  he had served luring the past two  vears, and also ol ue *pcr.>t*iry who  had been most painstaking in his  work. He thanked the city council for  the way in which ihey had stood by  the board at all times. There were  three trustees retiring this year, and  ho regretted that Mr. Leckie, to whom  he paid an eloquent tribute had iound  it necessary to resign. He preiiiuu'.!  the three retiring trustees would all  appear on the ballot again.  TRUSTEE KNOWLES  Trustee Knowles, as chairman of the  grounds oommittee gave a brief summary of the work that had been dune  by his department during the year.  Their estimated expenditure for 1914  had been placed at 1600 but unfortunately they had exceeded this by (1265.  They had laid several main water  pipes into the ground, had built gia-  vel walks, sodded the grounds an front  oi the building and also planted  number of trees, the effect of which  "uuW not be apparent for a .war or  two, but would ultimately bo a great  adornment. They had anatuged as  far as possible to do all the work in  suoh a Wav that it would not have to  be done a second time. The walks  had been laid so that when the monev. was available a covering of c*amont  could be put on without further excavation. The expenditure had covered cost of plans, the laying of four  water mains, the leveling of the  grounds and putting the wholo thin"  into shape.  In conclusion Mr. Knowles expressed  bis willingness to again accept nomination.  LADY CANDIDATE SPEAKS  Mr. Leokie here announced that a  number of citizens had asked a lady  to stand as school trustee. Nurse  Port was the lady selected as candidate, and personally he was prepared  to give her two votes if he could .do  so. (Applause.)  Miss Port, who met with a hearty  reception said that when she attended  the publio meeting a year a-n thore  was no thought further from her mind  than that she would be addressing  them as a oandidate on the present  occasion. Personally she mul no desire whatever for anv public office,  but she had always had a great l0ve  and admiration for members of her sex  and also for fair play. So that when  a number of the mothers of the city  had asked her to become a oandidate  for election on the sohool board as  their representative she consented, because she did not think the mothers  had had fair play. She was sure that  no fair-minded man or woman among  them, who had given the matter any  consideration, could think it right  that the mother who had borne and  oared for, and trained the ohildren in  the years of infancy should be told to  stand aside where their education was  concerned. Virtually, continued Miss  Port, wo say to them, "You ar.iv Continue to spend vour time and strength  in oaring for the bodies of the children, vou may keep n boarding house  for them, and see that they aro properly clothed, but tho control of their  mental and moral training must now  be transferred to other hands. You  no longer have any voice in the matter." "I think," emphatically declared Miss Port, "that they should have  a voice in the matter. Thev arc surely as vitally interested in the future  well-being of their children as their  fathers are. I think there 'hamid be a  woman on the board, for no mat ter  how capable oar men Inwtivs mav ty,  they cannot look at matters fir.m a  woman's Point of view,"  SUPERVISION OF PLAY GROUNDS  a  No one need fear, she continued that  if she were elected she would create a  revolution in the school. She v-oulal  only have one voice and one vote  against five of the masculine persuasion. There was one matter however  that she would advooate, and thnt  was ths early introduction of supervised playgrounds. All the best educators of the dav were ���"���reed that it was  moat unwise,   in fact almost criminal  BRINGING DOWN A "TAUBE."

It had too often led to  degeneration of character and the play  ground was too apt to become the  nursery of the prison, while under proper supervision and with proper control and direction the play hours  should become even more enjoyable  than thev were at present, end ut the  same time be as oreat an educative  force as anything that coal!.I be  brought forward. It was a matter  whicn required a great deal of thoi.ght  and investigation and it she should be  elected she intended to go more fully  into the matter.  In the present stale of finances ol  course, no elaborate scheme could be  attempted, but in a verv simple way  'the good work might be begun without  extra expenditure.  She should certainly advocate reform in regard io the sanitary renditions of the school. That was really  the maist important of a'l anattajrs to  come before the council this year. (Applause.)  She hoped that those who might ob-  'ect to her uristncc rn the Eahool  board merely because she was a woman would     reconsider the matter fce-  (CotitinilPat aan Paa<rfl 4.)

The nominations fur council ana for  school trustees produced some surprises, especially for those who had imagined that the whole thing would go  through without an election, lho supposition was that Alderman Sutherland could be prevailed upon to reconsider his determination to retire this  year, nnd that tho old council would  bo returned en block without opposition. The return of Mayor Jones by  ncclamation is not altogether unexpected, as it is generally felt that a  a change at this time would not be in  tho interests of the city.  On Saturday a deputation of oltizens  including W. K. Glenn, 6, S. McKen-  ae, R. F. Morrison, D. Leckie, J. A.  Bigger, W. 1". Willits, R. Copclnntl, D.  Lloyd-Jones and others waited on Mr.  1). W. Sutherland requesting him to  again stand for councillor.  Mr. Sutherland objected strongly as  ho had been a momber for manv years  and thought that someone else should  havo a turn at it, also he had made  some bets that ho would not again  run. The committee offered to put up  all hats neceBsnry to cancel bets, and  after further discussion, and assurance  of the desire of all classes for his further services, Mr. Sutherland's consent  was obtained.  For the School Board, Mr. G. E.  Ritchie waB the only nominee for the  unexpired year remaining of Mr. D.  Leckie's term of office and he consequently goes in by acclamation.

A very pleasant  evening was spent, the music for dancing being provided bv Messrs. Kincaid  and Hereron.  A highly successful dance was Riven  by Mr. and Mra. M.

The E.lis0n Pure Bred Live Stock  Association has been fortunate in securing an exceptionally fino Holstein  bull, us woll as a first class specimen  of a pure bred Berkshire Boar. These  animals have beon 'loaned to tho Association by the Dominion Live Stock  Commission, and were selected uy "their  B. 0. representative, Dr. Tolmie, of  Viotoria.  The bull which is a threc-vear-old,  comes of excellent producing stock,  and as a tw0-year-old at Victoria secured first prize and championship in  the strongest competition ever seon in  the west.  The elTort of the Dominion Live  Stock Commission to improve the  grade of stock in Canada is a decided  step in the right direction and the  farmers of this district have not been  slow to take advantage of tho opportunity. With such sires aB thane at  our disnosal, wo have a splendid  chance of building up a much h.��rher  quality of stock than has hitherto been  possible.  As the privilege of using" these animals is only open to members of thc  Association, and as the membership  must necessarily be limited, it is nd-  visablefi that all who wish to join  should make application at >n\ce to  the secretary, Dr. Dickson. The membership fee of tho Association is si .00  and tho committee has fixed the service fee at 82.00 for tho boar .md 83,00  for the bull.  Mr. M. Hereron, the vho-orcsidcit of  the association is looking utter both  animals.  FRUIT SITUATION DISCUSSED  AT PENilCTON  (Continued from Pun 1.)  and dealings of other or raniautionB. if  open to thc public like those of the  Okanagun Inited Growers, might not  show such a great discrepancy. Only  a comparison of complete average returns was fair, he insisted.  Mr. Wood told of competition in the  valley, and said the business of the  central was often hurt by small  groups of growers who marketed their  own produce, when the very fact that  they wero able to do so was due solely to the existence of tho central.  It was freely admitted by Mr. Wood  that thc growers could not iivo on returns like those of 1914, but vould  be brought to bankruptcy if better  prices were not secured. He advocated  a fight by the growers for the control of their markets, and said that  some time the growers would have to  establish selling agencies of their own  in order to do away with the services  of brokers and wholsalers. He also  advocated cheaper packages for the  fruit shipped from the valley, and  warned the growers in the south end  of the Okanagan from depending too  much on soft fruits.  MANAGER   ROBERTSON"   ftEPUES  TO HIS CRITICS  Mr. liobertson, who was the fourth  speaker, took up first tho resolutions  passed last month by tho Penticton  and Armstrong unions resolutions expressing want of confidence in the central selling agency, and declared that  they wero unfair, in that they had  been framed gnd passed in tho abeenco  of information which had only to be  asked for to he given freely and fully.  Tho Armstrong men back of tho��o resolutions hud apologized, he said, and  ho was sure that Pentioton growers  would not be unfair when thev know  all the facts. Mr. Robertson also attacked the Ponticton Herald seying  that thoy were based on incomplete or  mistaken information.  The executive and management of  the central had been harshly criticised  for their policies during 1014, he said,  but those policies, he pointed out,  were merely a carrying out of tint wish  es of the locals, as embodied in resolutions first passed in December, 1913  by the Summerland and Peachland  unions, and later anoroved by the  nine other organizations. Tho executive and manager could do nothing but  what the locals outlined, and if the  policy waB wrong they were not to  blame.  On December 10th the Pontioton Herald published an interview with Mr.  Anderson, who said that at tho meeting of the local and oentral din*U(trs  at Vernon a committee had been nn  pointed to look into the central's deal-  ings.   This,   Mr. Bobortaou said, wns  unfair, provided Mr. Anderson had  been correctly quoted, for Mr. Anderson knew before he left Vernon that  the Committee had (Completed its investigation, and moreover he knew its  full report.  Mr. Wood of Armstrong was asked tn  state his version of the matter, and  explained that both investigations  were on charges proferred from Armstrong, one charge being that misleading quotations ou lettuce -rices hud  been sent up by tho central. This was  sustained, but the other charge, of  making special adjustments of pools,  was dismissed bv the committee, it  having been shown that it resulted  from a misunderstanding on the part  on the central's vegetable salesman.  Another statement of Mr. Anderson's  to tho Penticton Herald was next taken up by Mr. Robertson. Mr. Anderson had stated to the paper 'hfit the  cost of operations per car of the central during 1014 had risen to at out  $28.00 as compared t0 920.50 pur car  in 1013, in spite of the fact th.it 137  ears more had been handled up to  November 31 than the ontire tonnage  of 1913. Mr. Anderson's fi-uros in  support of this were a "ross candling  charge of $19,578, for tho central in  1013, and charges up to November of  830,631, for 1014.  This was entirely unfair Mr. Robertson, said, for in 1913 the central was  not operating until June, and had no  expense before that month, po that  the 1013 total was for seven months  only, to which Mr. Anderson had compared the charges for tho iirst eleven  months of 1014.  Either a comparison of twelve mouth  periods should be made, or ��� !se costs  of corresponding months should be  compared, said Mr. Robertson. (��,'������rating expenses from Juno i to November 31, 1914 woro 819.20 per ..ar he  said.  The arrangements made by the central with The Mutual Brokers and  Robertson. Morris & Co., wore next explained, these deals having been concluded in the spring of 1914, and long  before there was any threat, even of  war in Europe.  The war changed conditions entirely,  and Mr. Robertson told of a trip to  the prairies in August, when he found  nil dealers expecting a consigned market and cheap fruit. The best thin  to do, ho said, Boomed to arrange with  the Nash and Scot houses io handle  Okanagan United Growers' shipments j  exclusively, on a consignment basis.  This resulted in shutting out our competitors from Alberta, he said, for during September only four carloads of  American fruit were marketed in that  province, as ������"iiinst 107 carloads shipped from the Oknnaguti.  That the season was disa'">;>intiug,  and tho returns deplorably low he admitted, but he said ho was willing to  have the returns of the Okan.vui Ini-J  ted growers compared with those of  any other shipping association in Canada or in the United States, und to  abide bv results. Okanagan fi ult was  at least moved out, he declared, but  New York had not moved -iCr per cent,  of her crop, and 50 per cent, of the  Xova Scotia crop was still uns jld nnl  prospects for marketing during the  early spring wore described as so ba '  that thc growers might bo triad to  have got^n rid of their fruit oven nt  the low prices realized.  Mr. Robertson then told of the Apple Week Campaign in Vanoouver and  Victoria, which, ne said brought tho  growers 25 cents n box more than  could have been realized by any other  means. Vancouver business ir.ei had  given loyal support to British Columbia growers, ho said, and the brokers  had been able to pav 81.07 et Vancouver for Okanagan apples, when Washington fruit of the samo variety and  qualitv could have been had .at 85  cents a box.  Results in Calgary during Apple  Week were spoiled because of the fact  that competitors shipped on consignment, not on'v to brokers ai;d wholesalers, but also to retailers, : O price  being named, and the fruit to be sold  on commission solely.  A number of topics of interest to  onlv Penticton and Koremcos orowers  were gone into, returns on Certain  shipments from thoso points being ex-  olained, as was tho 40,000 box contract for export to Kas-'n'Un next  autumn.  DUMPING OF FOREIGN FRUIT  Early in December, in l**poaM to an  appeal to Ottawa, the rmtt-tl imping  clause, inflicting a surtax of 15 per  cent, was put into olToct -it V.-ncouvirr.  This waB done, said Mr. Bobortson.  because of unfair competition from  Washington, Irjenntcho�� apples heir  laid down in Vancouver around 65  cents a boa, apples as eood n* Ok��n-*-  gan No. 1 fruit. This meant a price  of from 26 to 36 cents a box, f.o.b.,  Wenatchee. Tho authorities at Ottawa, he said, wore willing nnd even  eager to consider any -v-is-Us to  protect tho fruit industry in this province, realizing that nn acute ciisifj  is boing faced by the growers Ijerc.  Mr. Robertson said he would be pled  in view of the general disadiisfa-'-ion,  if the B. C. (Tovornmont would ���������"*int  a commission to investigate tho central's business during 1914, and make  a public report. He urged tjio growers  to act as a unit, und said even the  jobbers on the prairies asked wonder-  ingly whv Okanagan growers did not  get together for their own r-roico'ion.  He also pointed out that even in  Washington, where thev have Had fifteen years experience, the marketing  problems are by no means solved, and  the returns wero as disastrous us in  this district in 1014. Final returns  would bo mado soon after Januar- 16  as possible, the books ha/inu- been  b'pt open until thnt date to dose up  for 98 cars not yet settled For. The  circumstances leading to a consigned  market for cherries were gone into  and tlio loss of the Coldstream Estate  business and subsotiuont litigation were  explained, both Mr. Robertson and  Mr. Reekie answering questions on the  latter topic,  Ontario growers spoiled tho chances  of a deal with the Grain Growers IrbI  spring, flaid Mr. Robertson, bv offer  ing barrelled apples at $2.10   f. o< b.  Correspondence  Editor of Kel'owna Record.  Dear Sir.���I shall be glad if vou will  allow me space to contradict a statement which I am told was made at  last Friday evening's meeting, to the  effect that there is no supervision of  pupila of the publio school during  play hours. ���  On the very dav of the opening of  school in August last, a schedule was  arranged which provided for a supervision of the girls' grounds by onri of  the lady teachers from iho only practicable vantage ground, viz., tbe windows of the building. With tho assist-  ance of the Vice-Principal, I hove myself undertaken tho oversight of the  boy's grounds. This supervision has  never been relaxed: and that it haB  have some effect I conclude from tho  fact that several parents have remarked to me that they can s*e �� derided  improvement in tho deportment of the  children.  Of course, we teachers Can assume  no responsibility for the bohavious of  pupils beforo 9.15 a.m., or ���luriiB, the  creator part of the noon mteru'if.Eion.  If parents would follow tho sugmatftion  I made through tho local papers some  time ago, viz., not to allow vhoir children to come to school before 9.15 a.  m., and 1.20 p.m., there would bo no  time during which the pupils aro not  under surveillance.  It goes for granted thnt wc cannot  see every act performed, or heat every  word spoken, bv tho threo hundred  and fifty pupils who attend the school;  but I am confident that the trenorn1  discipline will Compare favorably with  that of any school of this size.  Thanking you, Mr. Editor, for the  space, I am,  Yours sincerely,  R. P. RICHARDSON,  Principal of Public School.  Police Report for 1914  A report fop the year, 1014, submitted to tho council by the Chief of Police Thomas gives the following unaly-  sls of cases appearing beforo the magistrate during tho year. The total  number of cases of breach of the lftw  both civil, criminal and municipal was  190, of which 40 wero for drunkenness  und 30 the result of a raid on an  opium joint and 46 from gambl'n;  dens, tho two latter practically all  Chinese. The total collected in fines  was 81917.10. In addition the report  mentioned that 20 dogs were destroyed and 16 fires occurred.  Following is a complete list of the  offences committed:  Assault, 5; attempted murder, 1; attempted rape, 1; wounding, i* cruelty  to animals, 2; housebreaking. 1; larceny, 5; warehouse I I'O.iking, 3, broaches of dog license by-law, 13; drunkenness, 46; Indecent exposure 1; keeping  or frequenting disorderly houses, 3;  keeping or frequenting gaming houses,  16; keeping or frequonting oruum joint,  30; violation of Indian liquor Ii.w, 11;  offences against liquor license aet. 6;  offences against motor traffic regulation act, 0; neglecting to support family. 3; carrying offensive weapons, 2;  obstructing police. 2; prostitution, 1:  offences against trade licenses, !��� vagrancy. 3.  Brantford,    Ontario, and a guarantee  that    each barrel   would hold   60 per  cent Northern Spies, No. 1. grade, and  four other standurd varieties, nmkin  up the balance.  The question of internal comp::ti-Jon  was discussed, and it was "ointed out  that disinterested outsiders estimated  losses from that cause in 1914 ai figures ranging from $60,000. to 8300,000.  Unity among tho growers is necessary,  said Mr. Robertson, to anything approaching a control of outside markets.  Tho Reeve of Penticton, Mr. Conklin,  spoke briefly, saying he had always  criticised Mr. Robertson's salary, and  did not think, oven in view of general  conditions caused bv the war, that the  management had made a satisfactory  showing.  Mr. Conklin said about $135,000 had  been paid to brokers in 1914, and that  that money would have beon butter  used in starting our own selling men-  cios. He also said he thought the central did not give enough consideration  to tho handling of tho stone fruit s, on  which the south end of the district depend so largely.  Mr. Reekie roBe to uffer a correction,  saying thut only $13,041 had been  paid to brokers last year, tho rest of  the $135,000 haviu boon the profits  and commissions of wholesale dealers.  The next speaker was Mr. Huntley,  of Pentict0n, one of the directors of  tho central, who said that though ho  realized tho tremendous difficulties of  going direct to the retail dealers, he  considered that course the onlv >'oad  to salvation for the growers of this  district. Mr, Huntley, urged tho  growers to stand by the present oignn-  ization.  Mr. Robertson then spoke brief!" declaring that it would coBt more than  the $135,000 absorbed in 1914 by tho  middlemen for the growers to market  their crops through thoir own agents.  The brokers and ' wholesalers might  fight if such a course was adopted,  he warned his 'auditors, and before  such a radical course is begun the  growers must be well nrephfod to curry the fight to n finish.  Mr. Anderson s^oko last, ro-iteratimr  his stand on the analysis of fiinnes  concerning tho per oar cost of operations of tho central in 1914, but he  too, closed his remarks by urging nil  growers to stand by the present 01 if AIL*  ization, the eventual success ,-f whioh  he declared to be thoir Only hope, 'lho  meeting closed with a vote of tliunkn  to the spook'rn.  ie  Begin the New Year Right by  Ordering Your Groceries from  OXLEY  Our stock is of the Highest Quality;  Our Prices are Lowest;  and���  We guarantee Satisfaction  Some Cash Specials for Saturday  Choice Eggs  Corn Flakes  New Zealand Butter  Not New South Wales  doz. 35c  pkg. 10c  lb. 40c  tin 25c  Sodas, in tins  Choice Prunes, new stock  2 lb. 25c  Pure Jam, 5-lb. tins -   tin 75c  Don't Forget���We give 5 per cent.

THE SHRAPNEL SHELL  One of the most destructive weapons  in modern warfare is the shrapnel (hall  whioh wa* invented by Gen. Shrapnel  of th* British army. It oonsista of a  hollow steal shell, filled with about  250 leaden bullets, and containing a  sinall6 bursting oharge, just enough  to split it ,.��en and release the bullets at any given point, usually at  about 80 vards from the obhoot aimed  at, The bullets and the fragments of  the shell fly onward in a terrific  shower, which often covers an arm  of thirty yards wide to two hundred  and fiftv vards deep. By using fuses  of different lengths, the artillery oom-  abnut 80 vards from the object aimed  desired noint. Under effeetive shrapnel firo, troops in the open suffer very  heavily, and mav be almost annihilated, but if they are behind cover, the  bullets nan harmlessly overhead. Consequently, shrapnel is often used to  reduoe the'fire ot entrenched troops  bv making it fatal for any soldier to  lift his head to take aim,   fi.

The chnirniun ropliod that this Bummer tho regulation had boon observed,  and one of tho toachera hud nlwuys  Iwn present, Thoy arranged among  themselves that ono of them was at  hand at all timos. He holioved there  was a "tram" movement on 'ho American caantinent at tho present time in  favor aaf supervising the children dur-  ina' nlav hours. Some children could  naat actually nlav woll���they hail to bo  taught to play.  ALDERMAN RATTENBURY AND  FIRE PROTECTION  Tho chairman then Called upaait the  members of tho council to nchlresB tho  meeting. Alderman Kattenbury I-oir.tr  the first tai tako the floor.  Tho department which came v.r.der  Itia immediate euro, ho said, was that  ol ItuiMini's and Firo Protection.  During the vear 1914 thoro -,'ero 37  building pormlt* Issued, the c.itimatod  value of whioh -mounted to J08,86o.00  divided as follows:  Dwelling    (31,860.00  liusinoss pluoca     1)2,055,00  Miscellaneous ���        1,350 CO  While this did not compare very  favorably with the voar li>13, when  Kelowna tonned the list of western  Canada fan' huiltling permits per capita, vet ho was sure thov would POT0O  with him that, taking into consideration the financial depression und hard  times in general, this was a splendid  ahaawing for Kelowna.  Referring to tho matter of tire protection, ho said, tho firo brigado had  attended 10 calls, and dumago by fire  was ilaanc to tho extent of ��ijl0,t)25.00,  aaf whioh sum $9,835,00 wub lecovcud  from in* trance omiaanies.  They had taken moro precaution  against fires by adding a new auto  firo truck ami 500 foot of now lioso.  Ton new hydrants had boon placed in  the city, making a total of 44 hydrants, and thoy had also extended  the wator mains.  With roforenco to tho nuto fire truck  ho said, tho Bumo had been built bv a  local firm. The Kolowna Garage &  Machine Co., Ltd., and before accepting tho truck thoy had u��*0.,mpuiiied  by his worship, tho Mayor, and ten  members of the fire brigade given it  the most Bovoro tcBt they could possibly think of, and it had proven very  satisfactory in every way, and was  indeed a credit to the firm who turned it out.  In speaking of tho splendid services  of tho Kolowna Volunteer Fire Brigade  ho said their record as fire iiifhters  was ono of which all may well feel  proud. The prompt manner in which  they answer calls; the utter disregard  of their own personal safety; the great  sacrifices thoy are often called upon  to make in not haviii" time to ciunge  their wearing apparel when oalled to a  fire and thereby often having their  clothes soiled and damaged; such conduct was worth the highest praise.  At the last meeting of tho council  they agreed to give a small grant  of 8100 to the fire brigade as an  appreciation of their services, and  regretted very much that they could  not make the Bum larger, owing to the  financial depression.  At the request of the city council,  the Fire Committee opened up Correspondence with Mr. A. W. Rosb, Secretary-Treasurer of the Mainland Fire  Underwriter Association uf IL C,  with reference to having the firo insurance premiums reduced. After considerable correspondence und vith tbe  aBsistance and co-operation >f the  Hoard of Trade they had suoxoded in  getting Mr. Soeloy, who is lho Chief  Surveyor of tho Mainland Fire Underwriters Association, to come to Kelowna.  Mr. Soeloy remained here uomo three  weeks, und went into tho matter very  carefully, and was making a uew survev and a new report of the City of  Kolow'nn, taking into recognition our  now auto fire truck, tho additional  new hydrants und now hose, nnd als0  tho exti>naion of tho water mains. Ho  took tho water firo pressure at different parts of the city, and notod tho  splendid record for efficiency and service of tho Kelowna Volunteer Fire  llrigude. It was hoped that in the  near future this now survey would result in a substantial reduction of fire  insurance premiums.  Alderman Rattenbury said ho had  also been nssociated with Mr. Copeland on tho committee of Board of  Works, nnd could only say thut he  been amazed at the time, energy and  the faithfulness of Mr. .Copeland,  which ho has applied to the public  works department, and he was sure  they would agree with him, that the  miles of good roads and streets which  we had in tho city wore a monument  to Mr. Copoland's ability.  He had also been associated with  Alderman Duggan on the nark* committee, and the parks had been greatly improved this last season.  In conclusion he said this had boen  his first year in tho oity counoil, and  ho took this opportunity of thanking  the Mnvor and Council for thoir kindness, consideration and fieln. which  thov had (riven him this past year.  As a ratepayer, ne thought the people of Kolowna wero fortunate in having for Mayor, a man such aa J. W.  Jones, who was possessed ol such  ability and talent, and willing   0   do-  vote the same-to the oity's best interests.  He had been asked by h numlwr of  ropresa-ntative business men to stand  for another term and had decided to  accede to tneir wishes. He believed  in the most rigid economical aa'minis-  t ration for tho next year or two,  which would bo in tho beBt interests  of the city, and if elected, would en  denvair to discharge his duties to thi  eity'a beat ndvttntnge.  CHAIRMAN OF PARKS- ALDERMAN DUGGAN  Alderman D1 an said he had been  privileged, durjntr tho "our to servo  as ohalrman of the Parks Committee,  and the expenditure had reached 8'2,<  704,50.' Thia had been dividid ns follows:  500 feet of sidowalk        8512.00  Repairs to wooden sidewalk      00,00  .110 shade trees   ....          148.48  3 drinking fountains  ,    i?'��5.15  Plants for beds        80.25  ltuilalings nnd    painting of  bandstand      106.40  Material    and    hauling to  road     428 85  Gardener* wage*, and supervision  ,      514,6?  Extra lights        85.55  Sundries   ...  255.15  Relief work on Mill   Oroek  nnd road      237.15  The latter itom of relief work, ho  suid was an additional expense over  the ordinary expenditure on lho park  und had been udopted recently to provide employment for thoso who hud  no means of support. So fur tho  work had comprised tho straightening  of the creek bv the removal of a large  bed of sand at tho mouth and the  chiving of piles to protect the banks,  tho construction of a foot bridge o\ei  tho creek, aad tho grading of a considerable stretch of roadway r.round  the shore. All this hud boon douo nt  less than half thc cost of tho engineer's  estimate. '  At the preaent time, continued Aldi  man Duggan, thore woro Bomo lift ecu  or twenty men engaged in cloaring out  ono of tho sloughs and with lho ma-  ti't'ial removed building up low places  When finished tho pond thus formed  Would mako n nieo skating rink.  In    addition to thoir work in     the  nark tho committee had superintended  the planting of 1368 shade troes  various parts of tho city as follaaws:  Eli avenue, 30; Harvey avenue, 55;  DeHart avenue, 88; Glonn avenue, 1*2;  Park avenue, 60; Lawson avenue, 00;  Fuller avonue, 00; llernnrd avenue, 48;  St. Paul streot, 105; Abbot Biruet, i26;  Kthel Btreet, 07; Richter str.iot, north,  142; Riohter street south, 11; l'rndozi  street 25.  The trees had coat, including plant-  lng$960��� which had b,��n cliaaavcl to  thc Hoard of Work*. Ik thankeal the  members of the lommitteo (or their  valuable services during tho vear.  He had also served on tho Hoard of  Works, nnd could heartily endorse Ald-  Rttttenbury's remarks as to Aid. C'ooe-  ,and. Ho hnd certainly givon a great  amount of service.  Concluding Alderman Duvgnn said ho  had endeavored always to sec thnt the  North Ward had its fair share of improvements, and if hia servicos had  been satisfactory he was willing to  seek re-election.  ALDERMAN TAYLOR  Alderman Taylor, whoso poncha'xnt  air usually manuges to create u liitlo  diversion at these ineotings was greeted with expectant applause as lie took  his place by tho table���or rather, on  it. Alderman Taylor hus a supremo  contempt for thoso superficial oratorical graces which generally mark the  platform artist, and, to be perfcotly  candid, in hiB efforts to uvoid theso  ho approuches the other extreme und  fails to do himself justice. He is one  of the most Conscientious and capable  workers on the council, and brings a  fur more than ordinary ability and  wide experience to bear upon his wolk.  This, however, tho "man in the street"  docB not know, and iB not likely to do  unless someone oise tells him, for Aid.  Taylor can nover bo persuaded to talk  in publio about what he bus done.  There had not been muoh doing, he  said, in his department this .enr. They  hud laid ono branch Bower to the  cannery���that was tho oounoil supplied  the pipe and the cannery laid it. Altogether thero aro forty-three connections with the sewer, sixteen of whioh  wero mado this year. Ono 'jr iwo  others might bo mado, only some people do not care to make them. They  apparently prefer to throw their slops  out of tho windows and baok doors."  Speaking of Mr. Bigger's contention  that tho city should put in a branch  sewer to tho school, Alderman Taylor  pointed out that all branch sewers  were laid under tho local improvement  By-law, and it was only necessary for  people who lived along tho streets concerned to nut in petitions aad the  council would put in tho sower.  This resulted in a little sparring between Mr. Digger and the alderman,  the former contending that the sewers  to tho publio school shaaulal not bo put  in undor the Local Improvement By-  las. "I think" said Mr. Bigiror, "that  Mr. Taylor knows perfectly veil that  if the council saw fit thoy could put  it in themselves."  Alderman Tavlor concluded with a  sly hit at the locnl doctors for their  neglect to report eases of infectious  diseases, only one such case having  boen reported during the year.  BOARD OF WORKS-ALDERMAN  COPELAND  Alderman Copeland was the next  speaker. This was the fourth vear that  he had appoared before the ratepayers  to give an account of his stewardship,  and it had been his privilege to be  chairman of the Board of Works again,  this Map his) third year on that committee, which had Consisted of himself,  Alderman Duggan, Alderman Rattenbury and the Mayor.  The first thing the oommittee did  last spring was to go over the various  streets in the oity, of whioh perhnns  most people wero not aware there were  40 mile*.    His   hearers   could readily  understand that with the tmall  amount of. money at the committee's  disposal it was almost impossible to  do justice to any one street.  The Board of Works was in his opinion the most important committee of  the council, though some might differ  with him. But every man, woman and  child was interested in well kept  streets nnd sidowalks.  After going over the various sweets  ho Continued, which took considerable  lime, thev picked out those thut re-  apiircd attention, and had a meeting  of tho oommittoo to go into figures.  Tho firstt estimate figured out at 816,-  000. At tbo time this seemed an enormous sum to spend on streets iu one  year. They wont over tho figures from  timo to timo to sco whether thoy could  not bo cut down in some way, but  thoy found.it almost impossible to do  sai, nnd the oommittee rccomtnamded  to the council thnt thoy shotdd flnoe  $16,000 nside for streets. This was  aansscd by tho counoil without a dissenting voice. Aftor tho work had  beon started, however, nnd considerable hud been dono to tho worst  streets in tho south ward tho caimmit-  tee, found that upon keening eloso tab  on tho work thnt they wore saving a  i-onsidernble amount of money on each  street nnd lutor on boforc the tux rate  was struck, at a oommittoo of the  whole council it was decided to cut  tho appropriation from 816,000 to  <12,000 and ho wos pleased to say  that thoy had not Bpcnt quite nil of  that. Tho actual amount of money  spent on the streets this year in  ���Trading, gravellinar and rocking was  ���inoraaximntolv 80,000��� 86,000 for  teaming and 83,000 for labor.  He would like, ho suid, to give 10  thorn a little idea of how that money  wub spent, and whero. Thero were  sevon miles of new streets g'tuted,  Riohter street north and .St. Paul  street being rocked, gravelled and  rolled. There wero nhjo throe miles of  natch work dono in the wav al gravcl-  lin~ older streets where the road bod  was getting thin. A total of 670)  vards of raick ami gravel hatl been  hauled on to the streets at a fraction  less than 60 oonts por yard. This was  aaf course merely for tlrawin, it, and  alid not include spreading. This ho  snid was tho cheapest at which it hatl  over been mit on the strocta since he  was 11 mombcr of the council. The  first year he was in the council it had  cost something ovor 81.00 but this  vear thoy had got it down to a ttifl-  less than 60 cents, which he waa sure  thoy would npreo with him Was very  reasonable indeed. It was much less  thnn tho contractors had "Ot it hauled for.  Thev had had somo verv heavy grud-  ing ta> do on North Ethol street and  North Riohter street ns thoBe wero in  a verv bad sh.no indeed wh^n they  undertook to fix them in the spring.  Strathennn avenue was another streot  on which considerable money linal boen  spent. It was a verv hard streot to  do as thev had to clear it from ono  end to thc other of timber and stumps  before it. could bo craded.  Early in the anrin-' �� cortnin     cm-  tractor had tried hard to convince  him thut he could do the work verv  much cheaper bv oontract than bv d��-  labor. Strathcona avenue waa the  verv worst street he could have tackled. His figures for olearing, grueling  and gravelling were 81500, and he assured him (Aid. Copeland) ihat he  would not make a dollar out oi it.  The eity hud done that work under  thi supervision of their worthy street  foreman at a cost of $745.68. ��0 they  could boo thoy made a saving of over  half on one short street.  Alderman Copeland also mentioned  the oonstruotion of the drain south of  Bernard avonue from Casorso'* block  to the lake, whioh had boen nut in bv  the committee at a cost of $326.10 a  sum vorv much less than the estimates  thoy had got.  From whnt he had seon, continued  the speaker, and from what he had  boen told by tho travelling -Miblic, Kelowna hud tho beat streets of any city  of its size in tho interior of B. C, and  this vcur the oity council 5ould very  ensily sit back and do very little on  the streets for another couplo of .years,  oxcopt in the centre of the town vhere  the traffic was heavy.  In towns such as this in other t.r.rts  ol Canada, he said they had oaid an-  ginoors, and tho chairman ol the committees had nothing to do but i.ttend  counoil meetings. In our a�� Hi had  no paid engineer, and he did n,.t know  but that thoy woro just as woll off  without. At unv rate the oity was  saving 82500 to $3000 a year by not  having ono.  Ho honed thnt tho council ol 1915  would bo in fnvor of reducing tho tnx  rnto. He was sorry that thoy woro as  high as thov had beon last vear. It  had come to his oars not long wn  that ho was sololv responsible for tho  high rate of taxes for 1914, but ho  did not see it thnt wav himself. The  amount placed on tho estimates was  812.000 nnd ho had not oxeeeled lltnt  in fact there waB a small surplus.  He indulged in a little critioism of  the financial statement, which showed  certain amountB charged to his department wnich ho did not than'  should bo there, and concluded with a  fow rcmnrks on the marketing of the  produce of tho district.  As Alderman Copoland was taking  his aeut ho was recalled bv tho indignant voice ol a north ward resident  who complained in the broadest  'Scawtch' that tho Improvements of  North Richter streot had been dono on  Clomont avenue for, he claimed, tho  benefit of tho people of Glenmore. The  streets nt times were so bad in that  neighborhood that ladies had to wheel  their baby carringCB in the irrigation  flumos, a statement which ov-'  ronrs of laughter.  Another gentlomen, also hnilin? from  "Lnnd 0' Cakes" enquired fnootlously  if it waa not the case that aftor the  steam roller had gone ovor the roads  a cvcliat had come along -nd cut them  up again?  Alderman   Copeland'a   replies    wero  more or less drowned in the lnuch'--  nnd nnnluuso. but ho was under.it o."'  to sav that it was a well known fact  that if a heavv steam roller wa* put  over a newly made street' the sand was  brought to the aurfooe, and a bicyole  passing along would certainly make a  mark.  ALDERMAN ADAMS ON LIGHT AND  WATER  Alderman Adam* who had filled tho  office of chairman of the Light and  Water Committee said that althoue  the work had been new to him he bad  thoroughly enjoyed it, and while often  it had been difficult to spare the time,  to devote to the duties of the office,  he had been ably assisted by the other  members of tho committee.  At the beginning of the year the  committee had deemed that six important matters required particular attention. First, a better and mo'.e evenly distributed lighting system; second, a further inorease in the 1 ower  plant, as the overload on the plant  was altogether too great, and with the  new street lighting proposed, much additional nower would he required; third  a new intake for the oitv'a water supply: fourth, the connecting up nf ns  many of the dead ends of tho city  water mains as was possible, undpio-  viding proper blow-outs for tho 10 <nds  which could not be connected tip; fifth  the metering of water connections; and  sixth, the installation ol additional  hydrants,  Regarding the street lighting system  he snid he need sav little, as it    was  bofare    the people   every night. There  was no doubt that the new     system  wns a great    improvement over    the  old ono.    Formerly they bad 26   arc '  lumps along the main streets and  large number of incandescent    lamps, '  whieh burned the whole 24 hours and ,  were thus .very Wasteful of current. The  new    system   supplied light to every  corner of tho city nnd eovored    about  sixteen   miles of streets,   with   about  200 lumps.   It had been installed very  economically on the existing n,,les by  tho city's own lineman who had    lot-'  lowed tho engineer's nlaas. Onlv about  1000 feet of now pole line had    been  necessary.  Regarding the inorease of the ��� owor  plant, he said that the old units of  100 and 50 kilowatts had beon much  ovortaxed at the beginning of tho year a  and had been oarrying a den-��arnus  overload of about 30 per cent. If anv-  thing had gone wrong they had nothing to. fall back upon for water and '  light or firo protection. It had therefore seemed most neoessary it at an  additional unit should bo lustnlled.  The committee had nit wished to incur tho expense of .additions to the ,  powor house, so a vortical . n., ine had  been decided urmt and a rotie'r-tor  with a capacity of 250 kilowatts. This  gave a capacity for the whaile plant  of 400 kilowatts, or with ovn:i>ud of  533 kilowatts, which vira'.d serve possibly for the next ten years. The new  plant he might mention had boon test-  ted out that day and was running  vorv satisfactorily.  There were at    present 516    active  {Continued on V*"t B.)  January Sale  Everything Cut.

There were 30 power connections compared with 27 in 1913.  The new intake pipe for the water  works was a 14-inch pipe, 1000 feet in  length, the end of which was about 98  feet below the surface of the lake,  wnioh ahould ensure a rood supply of  water to the city. The cost had been  1810.49.  , Hr. Teal, the city's water works foreman, he said, had had a busy year  this year, and much credit was due to  him for the efficient manner in which  he had looked after the city's i ystoni.  There were now 75,307 feet ���f nine extending over the citv, 7,897 feet of  which had been laid during '.he year.  This had been principally used in connecting uo "dead ends" in order to  ensure thorough circulation and prevent accumulation of sediment in the  more or less stagnant wator nt the  ends of the pipe. When these ends  were connected un the water was kept  constantly in motion and no sta"n i-  tion was possible Where tho "dead  ends" could not be connected "blowouts" had been arranged.  There wero 465 water connections, a  decrease over 1913 of 31 although 70  new' connections had been made. Of  theso connections 287 were metered,  143 meters bavin? been nut in this  rear. Practically all the nrinoipal  water users in the citv had meters.  There were 44 fire h-drants in the  city, 9 new ones having been nut  aluring the year, and one held in re-  servo. Hydrants he considered were a  real economy aB thoy meant '.hut less  hose was necessary and "wo was very  expensive.  He had several observations to  make regarding -the financial statement. It would be noted he said  that there had been water and light  debentures issued to the amount of  (28,000, selling at 97 and producing  $21,100, while the assets had shown an  Increase of 125,773.72. The -<rofit aud  loss account showed' a small deficit,  alter allowing for interest and sinking  fund, and depreciation of $278. This  was due to the reduction in number  of users and also to the faot that the  rates had been considerably lowered.  In conclusion he said he wished to  recognize the valuable assistance of tbe  rest of the committee, and rsneoially  of Alderman Sutherland, of wl.om he  snnke in high terms.  Hr. C. O. Clement asked why the  street lights had been continued further on Ellis Btreet than Riohter street  a aiuostion whioh Alderman ,\dams  snid he could not an.wor v. itlio.it con-  sultini, the nlan. He sunDo-tod bow-  ovor, that the pole line extended further in one olaco than the other.  CHA1BHAN OP FINANCE COMMITTEE���ALD. SUTHERLAND  Alderman Sutherland, chairman of  the Finance'committee, said that while  most of the other speakers had used  notes in the course of their addresses,  his notes were distributed among the  audience in the shape of copies ol the  financial statement.  There Was one thing whioh struck  him as peculiar at the present meeting  and that was that there were no new  candidates for municipal honors. There  waa another peculiar thing. This was  the ninth or tenth year in which he  had appeared before "'them at these  meetings, and on previous occasions,  when the rates were low, nnd aldermen  were not paid there had been a gieat  deal ol dissatisfaction. This year when  their rates were high and all tho  council was paid, everybody seemed  satisfied. (Laughter). From this they  must assume that the man who works  for nothing is very little thought of,  and what the counoil would have to  do next year would be to increase  their pay.    (Loud laughter).  The council had started the vear in  rather a, mix up with 1181,000 of unsold debentures. They had loans  amounting to 1160,000-140,000 at 10  per oent, and $30,000 at 8 por cent.,  both from private persons and StH',-  000 from the bank. Thoy knew how  hard it had been to borrow money  this year, but it had to be done. They  had managed to sell their dsbentuiea  and were very lucky to do so before  the war oame on. Thev wero all sold  and the oounoil had realised the beet  prioe thev could lor them.  Sneaking of things in general, he  said, the assessment had not been  changed this year. It would be seen  that the tax levy was made on the  land assessment only. As was aaid  last year tnis was a debatable question, especially in towns whero conditions were normal. In Kelowna  things were not exaotly in a normal  condition as a verv large percentage  oi those who held land were speculators and outsiders. In faot 43 per  oent, oi the names on tbe assessment  roll wero those of people not resident  in tho oity, and who did not spend  one dollar here in a year. To get at  these they had adopted the present  method, and the oounoil thought it a  wise thing to do.  Last year's tax rate was 18.6 mills;  this year it had been 24 mills. The  rate had been probably higher than it  need be, but if the council hnd mado a  mistake, it had only done exaotly  what everv business man in this town  had done. We had been all nntimis-  tic, and tke people had been more so  than thc counoil. They would remember that during the vear the council  had been asked to do certain improvements whioh had been turned down.  They had been called hay seeds and  moss backs for doing so. He reminded his audience of the nioe piotures  they had seen in ths storo windows of  asphalted streets with flower beds In  the centre, and fancy lamp standards.  A. meeting had been held in the Board  ot Trade rooms and the question was  discussed as to whether suuh improvements   should   be   made.   Only   two  mum  hands had been raised against it. The  counoil however,'had turned it down  and Mayor Jones and he had been  blamed very much for doing so. Hew-  al people bad contended that it was  better to have a large assessment and  publio works going on than a small  assessment and nothing doing. In other words the point had been that at  that time we were expecting great  things in the shape of a new drill  hall, new post offioe, Canadian Northern railway, and other things. The  proposition, put to the council was  this. "Do something to 'ide ua over  the next six months." We had done bo  but not to the extent that people  had wanted them to.  Alderman Sutherland then discussed  the possibility oi reduoing tbe tax  rate for -the coming year. Lost year  ho said they had added 2 mills to the  debenture rate, and he regretted that  this rate had increased so rapidly. In  1910 the whole tax levy had been $27,  000. In 1914 they had had to raise  $30,000 for debenture purposes alone.  He would like to warn future councils  to be very Careful in the matter of  borrowing money, for he thought the  time had oome to call a halt.  The sohool trustees had been as cp-  timistio as the counoil and had risked  for six mills. Of this they had only  used five, and had the rest in hand,  and they hoped they would thus be  able to step down two mills this year,  making the school levy four mills instead of six.  This year they had to levy an "additional 1 mill to cover loss on sale of  debentures, and an additional 1' nulls  for w0rk on streets. ThiB year they  could strike out the one mill for debenture expense; the school trusties  wore willing to strike' off another two  mills, and of oourse the council could  make any saving thoy wished on the  matter of street improvements. There  waB, therefore, no reason why the rate  should not be down to what '.t was  in 1913, namely 18 mills.  Reference was also made by Alderman Sutherland to an excess of $3000  appearing in the financial statement  in the accumulated sinking funds fur  debentures. This was accounted for by  the faot that the council had levied  for sinkinar fund on debentures issued  at the beginning of the year. The auditors had not thought this necersary  and consequently a sum of over 83000  was available for any purpose the  council saw fit.  When they started the electric light  plant thov borrowed monev on 40 year  debentures. If tbey would look at  the schedule of bonded indebtedness  they would see that the average lifo of  debentures was 25 years and in some  cases 20 vears. It Was only this year  that thev had been sensible enough to  borrow money on short term. It  must be quite apparent to everyone  that boilers and steam engines which  were working night and da><- and polos  stuck in the ground would not lest  the length of the term of those debentures. Most of the maohiniry  would bo scrapped two or three times  over, and the pole line rebuilt. The  counoil had therefore thought it wise  to lav aside a certain amount of money which would shorten the lite of  those debentures as it were, and t0  bring them down to about 15 years.  In the eleotrio light statement was  an item of expense of $5064, for depreciation. They were not able last  year to Bet aside this money as it  should have been, as only 45 per cent  of the taxes came in, and they had to  take this money and also the water  and light rates and use them for other purposes. If conditions wero as  they should be they would have this  $5064 with a smaller amount of $4500  from 1913 earmarked and placed in a special account lo  use for any. purpose of extending our light and water systems.  It would in the future do away with  borrowing money, and asking the ratepayers to vote monev as they had  been doing from year to vear. That  is, they had been trying to devise a  polioy that would stop that system.  of borrowing whioh had increased the  bonded indebtedness to such a veiy  large amount. Ho trusted that future  councils would maintain this system.  Had thoy boen fortunate enough to  get in tho taxes, and had this monev  beon plaood one Bide and earmarked, it  would bo an easy matter for councils  to follow tho same course. Hut when  it appeared onlv as in the form ot unpaid taxos, it mado it very much harder. Uo had made theso remarks, he  said more for the benefit of future  councils, than possibly lor his audience.  Referring to the new Btreet lighting  system whioh had been installed ho  said ths old system had been a very  expensive one to keep up. Thoy hsd  had about 50 inoandesoent lamps on  the street. The smallest ol these  16 -candle p���wor carbon lamps burned  about 64 watts, 64 multiplied by 50  gave a little over 3 kilowatts.  Three kilowatts at the power rate  of 8 cents gave about 26 osnts per  hour.    That was what they had been  SEE  The Trey  o' Hearts  AT  The Opera House  Every Monday  burning all along, 25 ,ents per hour  was $6.00 per day. This was taking  only the smallest lamps, ��s thoy had  many .12 candle power .'t.mps in use.  These lamps had been burning $2500  worth of light a year, representing  "about 10 per cent of the whole output of the power plant. .As these  lamps were only supposed to be used  temporarily, and were to be replaced  they had not charged anything foi  them against the street committeo,  and had not credited a cent 0f it to  the power plant. What they had debited the Btreet oommittee with was a  number of arc ldmps, 26 in all, at the  rate of 60 oents per lamp, (which was  a rate struck years ago when the  street lightiog system was put in) up  to September when tho new system  had been installed.  In place of the street lighting having cost only $2000 it had been costing over $4000.  The new ltr/hts were verv eoonutnionl.  The tungsten lamps took about 1!  watts per candle power, these (<,:,  about .8. At tho present time they  had about 22,500 candle power only  using 18 kilowatts.  In reference to the new unit whieh  had been put in Alderman Sutherland  said that no doubt they could have  dono without that this vear. The  strange thing was this, that as Alderman Adams pointed out, while there  had been a decrease from the first  four months of the vear there was an  increaso of 20 per cent., tor the first  four months ovor the corresponilin  months last year. So that it had seemed imperative that something shoulc  be dono to provide for a bigger d  mand for the future.  In conclusion Alderman Sutherland  stated that it was his desire to retire  from council work this year owing to  the morn pressing demands of his business. During tho nine years in whioh  he had held office he had made council  work his hobbio. and'had had a poia1  doal of eniovment out of it.  MAYOR JONES  Mayor' .Jones was the last speaker  and was received with considerable enthusiasm. He expressed his gratification at the ovident interest whioh the  ladies were taking in municipal matters, and particularly of the school  board.  Speaking of the plea of the trustees  for the building of a sewer to the new  school, he stated that no ono realized  the importance of such a sewer more  than the present council did. nnd the  would bo very pleased to put the sewer there. One, of the 'rentist difficulties which faced the conn-il was  sanitation, and it was evident that  something would hnve to be done- He  understood that the depat'tmamt of  cduoation wns getting after tho school  bonrd, nnd insistinT that a sewer be  nut in. They all knew the situation  whioh confronted tho council of 1915.  Thov would liko to put in the s-wer  but whore were thov going to get the  money? The council would do their  utmost to find the money in order to  meet the situation. The sewer would  have to be constructed along a street  on whioh there were nQ people living fur  the greater part ol the way, and it  was evident there would be difficulty  in putting such in under the bead of  local improvements. But possibly  some wav would be devised.  He made reference to Alderjiun Itat-  tenbury's report on the fire brigade,  and also the addition of the nev auto  fire truek, and hoped that the fire losses would be still smaller this year  than last.  Speaking of Alderman Rattenbury's  figures regarding building permits, he  said that the Alderman had omitted  to mention that while the cost of new  buildings in Vernon was $45,025 those  in Kelowna had been $69,865, bo that  we wore still the leading city of the  Okanagan. We might not have many  government buildings here but wc were  certainlv holding our own (Voice, "Vi'o  have a jaill")  In the matter of law observance the  Mnvor said thero were 196 convictions  during the year and a total of fines  of $1907.10. The greater number of  these convictions were not against people residing in Kelowna, but ngninst  outsiders, particularly railway con  struction men. There had been a considerable falling off in convictions during the past two or three months.  Alderman Copeland, he said bad  omitted to mention the building of  sidewalks lust year. There had been  9857 feet of plank walks at a aiost of  $3770, and 4457 feet of cement v nlks  at a cost of S6467. These weie all  local improvements and would Le paid  for by tho property owners.  Mayor Jones touched briefly on various points in the financial statement  and mentioned that the auditor had  informed him that there was no municipality in the uooer country in Bo  satisfactory a financial condition as  KeloWna at the present Lime Their  sinking fund was intact, which was  not the caso with many Mh-ir municipalities. Thev hnd $46,608.52 la this  fund, $26,608.52 in the Bank of Montreal at 4 per oent. and $20,000 loan-  edi on mortgnges at 8 per cent. The,  could have loaned the whole amount  if thev had wished but thev had boon  very conservative in their la.aiis.  At the last session of the legislature the power to loan sinking funds  had been taken awav. Most of these  mortgages fell due thit, year and one  in 1916. The interest had been paid  on all of them. Thev had been very  careful in this matter which h.td been  more or less of an experiment, nnd one  which they did not wish to extend.  He referred to the success nf the  council in disposing of all unsold debentures before May, receiving 81 to  98 for the 5 nnd 6 per cents, respectively.  The city's bonded indebtedness  was $427,000. and the bonds  were classified into productive and  non productive. Thev had S155.500  invested in light nnd water, and this  amount invested would show a profit  of ovor three Der cent. It was verv  necossnry that thov kent down the  non-nroductivo bonds. It was absoluto-.  I,- necessary thit the cita- proceed with  the most rio-itl economv and tli.it  strong financial committer be .m tbo  council this year.    With largo arrears  oi taxes and loans against current revenue at the bank thev would have to  move very slowly and cautiously. The  council would have to see that all expenses were kept down to the very  lowest point, otherwise the,- were going t0 reach n stage where there wiuld  be trouble. With the large arrears of  taxes it was going to be very difficult  to finance, and yet at the same time,  they wished to reduce the rate.  The finance committee had suggested  to the assessor that the values on assessable property should be reduced  from 10 to 20 per cent, and they all  felt that it was absolutely necessary  to do so, so that there would he a big  reduction next year.  He referred appreciatively to the  good work done by the new i"en on  the council during the year. There  had been 60 regular meetings uf the  council and he himself had attended  150 committee meetings, so that they  would . realize the amount of work  involved.  He also made mention of the great  assistance rendered to the parks Committee bv the outside members, Hr. D.  W. Crowley, Mr. F. M. Buokland and  Mr. Lioife* E. Taylor.  Ths relief work which was being  carried on in the nark had been undertaken from a conviction that sntne-  thing had to be done rather thin have  a large amount of charitable work.  They would, however, havo to borrow  the money to pay for it. Thev hnd  also been able to render assistance  to the ladies of tho Benevo'ent Society.  He was glad to note that tho f-o'.ver  'limit was naying so well.  Thov had endeavored to finance ns  woll ai thev could. Thev were all liable to make mistakes and somotimes  made them. The aldermen had been  unstinted in their services, and he  thought that un'ess there was someone who was anxious to recaiivo the  princely salary which they voted at  the beginning ot tho year, they coulal  not do better than return the aldrr-  men of tho old council  In conclusion the M�� -or trusted that  at the close of 1915 the council would  lie able to present a- beltnr  report of the financial condition th-i  they could this year.

BeaW  Traveling to Vernon by auto lust  Thursday afternoon the bowling team  representing Kclowna against Veinon  played the first hall of the ten came  aeries in the northern town, and while  the scores below do not appear to be  quite up to what was expected of the  Kolowna bowlers thero is reason to  feel content with tho showing made.  It is the first time that the bowlers  representing the city have bowled on  strange alleys and in strange suriound  ings, before a strange crowd, and a  careful glanoe at tho scores below will  toll the storv for themselves. The Kolowna bowlers were unable to locate  the alleys properly, perhaps due to the  tiring ride, and perhaps due to feeling  a pertain strangeness. However when  toward the finish after Vernon had pil  cd up a lead of 156 pins at tho ond  of the third gamo and nearly 200 pins  to about the middle of the fourth, the  Kelowna bova gradually began lo find  themselves and gradually pulled down  the lead until at the end of the fifth  gamo they wore onlv 12 Dins    behind.  Considering * the ' fact that Vernon  was playing at home and encouraged  by a good sited crowd who were on  hand to Witness the contests, giving  them every advantage the 12 pin lead  seoiirod by thorn is very small and  the local howlers should easily overtake them in tho return games which  aro to be plaved hero tonight.  The series is for ton games, total  pips to count, and the winners can  easily lay claim to tho championship  of the valley. All interested in the  bowling gome should turn out to encourage the local boys along as there  is no doubt s hard mme will result  and the local boys will have to shoot  bard to win.  The trip wa, not at tedious as was  expected, the roads were in a (air  condition and good time was made.  Following are the scores rolled at  Vernttai  The following letter has been sent  by the Deputy Minister of Agriculture  to the secretaries of Farmers' Institutes throughout the province:  Dear Sir,���I .would like to take this  opportunity, at the conclusion of tbe  year 1914, ot wishing you and the  members oi your Institute a Happy  and Prosperous New1 Year, and at tile  same time to express my appreciation  of the efforts of your President, Directors and yourself, towards furthering  the interests of your Institute. The  cordial relations which have .existed  between Institute direotors and this  department are a source of gratification to me, and much appreciated.  In reviewing Institute work for the  Past year I note with satisfaction the!  growth of your Farmers' Institute  movement. Manv new Institutes have]  been incorporated under the Agricultural Associations Act and material increase is shown by most institutes.  That an Institute, in any distriot  where there is a community of those  making their living off the land, oan  be made an institution ol exeat practical use and servioe to the larmer, is  obvious, provided it receives the whole  hearted support of the people, and  at the same time has efficient management.  Back up. and be loyal to vour Institute, therefore, and Bee that there  is no farmer in your district who is  not a member. Remember that in unity there iB strength, and that a body  of men united together for a common  purpose, can often accomplish that  which an individual cannot.  Reduce tho cost of production by  co-operative buying. A ton of wheat  can be bought at a lower price than  twenty sacks individually. Be businesslike. Those to whom you sell your  produce work along co-operative lines.  For your own protection, you must  do likewise. You are all interested in  land clearing. Buy your powder therefore, co-operatively, through the department, and take advantage of our  specially arranged institute prioe of  $5.00 per case and reduced freight  rate.  The crop competitions whioh have  been conducted under the ' auspices of  the Farmers' Institute havo been moat  successful during the n.ast a-ear. there  having been 587 Competitors as  against 305 last vear. It is proposed  to further extend the work this year.  Let your institute get as manv entries as possible. By means of these  crop competitions, the spirit if friendly rivalry is encouraged, which naturally leads to improvement of methods  .,nal therebv increases cron oroduotion.  The success which has also attended  the Boys' and Girls' competitions conducted by the department under the  auspices of Farmers' Institutes, has  surpassed my best expectations, there  being no less than 193 competitors.  Great interest was shown by the boys  and girls, and some very good results  were obtained. It is our intention to  further feature and extend the scope  of this work next year, and I trust  that aliinstitutes will send in ns D>any  entries as possible.  Short courses in horticultural and  live stock matters will be held in connection with thc institutes where ��� sufficient attendance is guarantejd. Pruning and fruit packing schools will also  be held wherever practicable. The department proposes to feature demonstration work as much as .lossible this  vear. believing that this kind aaf work  is of much more practical vailue th-  evening lecture work.  The past year has been ,>ne of trial  to all. and the farmer has also had to  suffer. Prices for fruits and vegetables  have/been most discouraging, p.n-1 in  manv cases disastrous, but grains and  meats have been, on the whole, satis-  faotorv.  The farmer who practises mixed  farming has undoubtedly bail the best  results this year, and the experience of  the lost fow years haB proved the wisdom of mixed farming. I would particularly wish to call the attention of  those who are devoting their energies  to fruit growing to the advisability of  whenever Possible, also keeping some  staack on their plaoes. A cow or two,  some pigs, a flook of poultry, are indeed, a material help to the fruitgrower in a year of bad pricfr>, such as we  havo just witnessed.  Though we have on the whole had  unsatisfactory results the past year,  do not let us be discouraged. Better  times will come again. What we have  to study is how, by praotioing the  strictest economy in production, wo  produoe the best article at the lowest  prioe, and how, after having Droducod  such an article, we can by the adoption of businesslike principles and by  co-operative action, market it to the  best advantage.  We aro indeed livin" in troublous  times. The nations of Europe are engaged in a titanic strugo4e for mastery��� a struggle whioh oan only have  one ending, and that tho triumph of  iustieo. honor and right. In soite of  these conditions, however tho outlook  for the farmer is ~ood. The devastation, of Europe means the curtailment  in those countries affected by lhe war.  of all foodstuffs, a defioiency which  must bo made mod bv the other countries in tho world. It is our dutv  therefore, as citizens   of the    British  Irrigation Farming  Comparative Results of Dry Land and  Irrigation Farming.

It should  also be nated that 'under irrigation  very successful orops of alfalfa were  prown, which not onlv were very profitable in themselves, but maintained  and increased the fertility of'the soil.  As summer fallow is unnecessary  where an alfalfa rotation can be established the farmer's land is producing a  crop every year undei irrigation as  against every sccand year unher dry  farming practice.  WHY WE HANG UP STOCKINGS  The custom of hanging up the sleeking on Christmas eve arose Irom an  incident in the life of the good St.  Nicholas. One clay, when h'j was  overtaken by a severe storm he took  refuge in a convent, and the next  day being Christmas he Dreached a  sermon to tbe nuns which they liked  so muoh that they asked him to come  next year and preach to them again.  On his second visit, which was also  on a Christmas eve, before "oing to  bed he asked each one of the nuns to  lend him a stocking, and he filled the  stockings with su��ar plums in return  for their hospitality.
