THURSDAY, JANUARY 18, 1917.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Par Annum  First Statutory Meeting  of New City Council  Mayor Sutherland Lines Up  His Committees for  Year's Work  Monday morning ioliowing  election is laid down by law _  tlie lirst meeting ol the newly-  elected council, and the occasion  upon which the Keys oi ollice or  whatever else sy_ooiik-.es Uie  burdens and responsibilities ol  civic auairs, are handed over by  the old body to V_e new. As  this year's council is, with two  exceptions only, composed oi  the same tneuiDers as last year,  this part was comparatively  simple, and alter the ceremoU)  attending uie making oi a nre-  sentation to the retiring iklayor  (referred to in another column;,  he and ex-alderman Lopeiand  withdrew, giving place to Uie  newly-elected memuers, Aid.  Buck and Aid. ltogcrsou, Ma>or  butheriand movmg up to uie  seat oi honour at the head ui  the board..  The lirst business oi the new  Mayor was the appointment ol  committees and the apportioning oi the work oi the various  departments oi city auairs. lhe  line-up as submitted was as  follows:���  Finance Committee: ��� Aid.  Itattenoury (chairman), Aid.  Rogerson, and Aid. Uuggan.  Board oi Wonts. ��� Aid. Harvey (.chairman,), and Aid. Duggan.  Light and Water Committee.-  Aid. Duggan (chairman), and  Aid. Buck.  Health and bewerageCoininit-  tee. ��� Aid. Jjlillie (chairman;,  and Aid. Rattenuury.  Parks Committee.���Aid. Rogerson (chairman j, and Aid.Harvey.  Fire Protection and Bni_!��i:i  Committee.���Aid. Buck (chairman), and Aid. Millie.  In submitting these names,  Mayor {Sutherland said that  they might be subject to alteration ii thought desirable. It  might also be necessary to add  a third member to some oi the  committees, but this could be  leit ior consideration iu the  meantime.  There were one or two suggestions which he would like to  make to the council and to thc  dillerent committees at I he outset, said the Mayor. In the  lirst place he would like to see  the council' as a body regard iV-  seli more as a board oi directors  The committee idea was all  right for the larger cities, but  in smaller places it was apt to  be overdeveloped. He would not  like to see the dillerent committees regarding themselves as  close corporations, and altogether apart from the rest. In  the work of the committees, loo  it had become customary to  leave the whole of the work and  responsibility to the chairman,  but in reality he was only the  convenor of the committee, and  had no more power or authority  than the rest unless that power  was delegated to him by them.  As to the Finance committee,  this in a sense overlapped all  the other committees. It was  responsible for all expenditures,  and could not shift that responsibility to the other committees  though it was the privilege" oi  the latter to make suggestions  and recommendations.  In addition to the above committees a resolution was passed  recommending to the government the appointment of Aid.  Rattenburyand Mr. G.A. Meikle  as Police Commissioners, and  Aid. Buck and Mr. W. G. Benson as a Licensing Board.  It was decided to call for tenders for the auditing of the city  accounts for the year.  Chief Thomas submitted his  monthly police report for December, showing a total of ten  cases before the magistrate during the month, one for breach of  the Indian liquor Act and nine  for gambling. The costs, bails  forfeited, and fines paid over to  the city amounted to (182.50.

How to Save Coal  A coal dealer in England,   an  exchange   says, has revealed  wlre also like to include the name ol  Aid. Copeland, who was also retiring irom the council. It was  a matter ior great regret thai  the council was losing the services oi two such men, whose  places, ne was afraid, it would  be dillitult to fill.  In reply ing, Mayor Jones said  that   tie   gilt had been a   very  secret oi how to make a lire last great and pleasant surprise to  about twelve hours with a sin- hun. He had expected ojlya  gle feeding. ifew minutes uriei ceremony   iu  "The preparation," says this handing over the ailairs oi the  real philanthropist, "is so very | city t_0 Jns successor, but he was  cheap that 1 am pleased to give none the iess grateiul for the  it to your readers. For one nun- i01i.en of their esteem and the  dredweight of coal mix sixteen kindly expressions which acconi-  ounces   of   common   salt   with panicd it.  eight ounces of common soda, 1 it was impossible for him to  and about two-thirds oi a   pint I retire  irom the ollice which . he  of boiling water to dissolve the  salt and soda. Keep this in a  bottle with the cork cut to allow the solution to be sprinkled.  Be sure the coal is well moistened with the Solution. The result is invariably very little  smoke, a very bright incandescent kind of flame, and long duration ol fuel..  "It sometimes happens that  some classes of coal require a  stronger mixture.- Then increase  the quantities of salt and soda,  but the same proportion of boiling water.  "What first led me to these  experiments was that some lew  years ago a salvage steamer recovered some coal which had  been submerged in a vessel ior  over twenty years. I had a few  hundredweights ol this coal and  was astonished at its duration  when burning. Further, the  smaller the coal the better the  results���so much so that I can  strongly advise your readers to  break up the coal before saturating it with the solution."  A subdivision plan submitted  by Messrs, Burne & Weddell, of  a part of Block ;��8 at the north  end pf the city was approved.  A letter was read from the  manager of the Telephone Co.,  pointing out that since the card  of instructions in case of fire  was last issued a large number  of new phones had been installed and changes made,. All the  latter were without the cards,  and he recommended that a further supply be procured.  It was delided to change- thc  day of the regular meetings of  the council to Monday instead  of Friday.  had held so long without som  regrets. He had greatly enjoye  his seven years service, the past  live years of them as mayor.  They had meant much to him,  and had given him a deep appreciation and insight into what  was involved in municipal work  an insight which he felt sure  would be of great help to him  in that larger sphere to which  '.he new mayor had referred. If  he could be of any use to Kelowna in his position as member  lor _e district, it would be verv  largely due to the experience he  had gained while engaged in the  city's work.  No 'one would feel the separation from the council more than  himself. They had been a loval  body of aldermen, and particularly in the last year, and while  there mij^ht have been dilTerences  of opinion every man had becu  willing to do his best. If any  of them had expressed doubts as  to the wisdom of any lines oi  policy he had been perfectly sincere in doing so and was always  ready to do his part in eolvinj;  the problem.  Of the city staff he had nothing but good to say, and their  loyalty ' and courtesy had been  'appreciated by all.  He thanked the Press for the  fair and impartial tre>uiuent  which had been accorded to the  council.  So manv members of the old  council were retaining their  seats that the work would practically go on without interruption. He had no fears for the  future of the city while in their  hands. To the office of Mayor  Mr. Sutherland would bring lhe  experience of manv past vears.  and the knowledge and care and  The Allies' reply to President  Wilson's request for a full statement of lhe objects for which they  were striving has been the principal topic for discussion in the press  during the past week. Alter touching upon tin- history of the war, I  the ambitions of Germany to dominate Europe, and the brutal manner in which they had carried on  the war, the note states that the  objects of the Allies are well known  having been ioimulated by the  chiefs of their different governments on several occasions.  " Their objects in the war will not  be made known in detail with all  the equitable compensations and  indemnities for damages suffered  until the hour of negotiations. But  the civilized world knows that they  imply in all necessity and in the  first instance the restoration ol Belgium, ol Serbia and of Montenegro  and the indemnities which are due  them; the evacuation of the invaded territories of France, of Russia  and of Roumania with just reparation; the reorganization of Euiope  guaranteed by a stable regime and  :minded a:-much upon resptctof  nationalities and full security and  liberty (of) economic development  which all nations, great or small,  possess as upon territorial conventions aud international agreements]  suitable to guarantee terntoiial arid  maritime fi ontiers against unjustified attacks; the restitution of provinces or territories wrested in the,  oast from the Allies by force or j  against the will of their populations; I  the liberation of Italians, of Slavs, {  of Roumanians and Teheco S'av-1  oquf8 from foreign domination;  theenfranchisement of populations  subject to the ��� bloody tyranny of  tic Turks; the expulsion fro.-" Eur-1  ope nf the Ottoman Empire which  has proved itself so radically alien  to western civilization. The intentions of His Majesty tin- Emperor of Russia regarding Poland have  been clearly indicnled in lhe proclamation which he has inst addressed to his armies. It goes  without saving lh?t if the Allies  ���vish to liberate Europe from lhe  brutal rovtousness of Prussian  militarism, it never has had design,  ��� s has been alleged, to encompass  lhe extermination of the German  peoples and their political disappearance. That which they desire  above all is to insure a peace upon  Meeting of B.C. Fruit Growers' Association  A meeting of the B. C. Fruit  Growers' Association was held on  Tuesday, Jan. 16th, in the Board  of Trade room, to nominate directors for the North and South  Kelowna districts and to elect one  delegate from each of these two  districts for the the Conference to  be held at Victoria on February  13th and 14th.  The two directors for 1916���  Messrs. L. E, Taylor and J. E. Reekie--were again nominated and  Messrs. W. C. Spencer and L Dilworth were elected as delegates.  A resolution re'a ing to the irrigation difficulties was paused and  with other matters handed to the  delegates and directors for support  at the Conference.  County Court Holds  Two Days' Session  Court House is Disgrace to City  Says Judge Swanson  I he handsome sum of $43 was  rals -d at thc social held last Thursday by the ladies of the W. C. TU.  Special thanks are due to the  Bethel Sunday School, which sent  a contribution of $5. The cash  goes' to the fund for providing  cocoa lor I he troops iu the trenches.  The estate of Col. Wm. Cody*  who died at Denver last week,  and which had been estimated  several tines in the past at over  $ 1,000,000, today was estimated by  Col. Codey's attorney, at not to  exceed $65,000. It consists in the  main of three ranches near Cocy,  Wyo., and an equsty in the hotel  tn that town.  An appeal by residents of the  town of Quesnel for act ian by the  gnvemmert towards having the  line of the P. G. E. Railway now  located from one to three miles  from the townsite, brought through  the town, is being given consideration by Hon. John Oliver, minist  er of railways. As located by the  engineers the line runs on a bench  above and some distance from the  townsite and ever since the surveys  were made the passing by of Quesnel has been a sore point with the  residents their.  wisdom which he had always  shown in connection with city  ailairs. He had no doubt that  the deliberations of the council  would be conducted in the most  amicable manner.  He thanked them from the  bottom of his heart, and though  he was retiring from the council he still hoped to have the  privilege of being present at  some of their meetings. He  wished them every good luck in  the matter of finance, which he  reminded them would require  the greatest care and caution.  Ex-Aid. Copeland, who has almost as long a record of service  to his credit as the late Mayor,  said that he would always look  back with very great pleasure  to his six years service as alderman and chairman of the Board  of Works. The work,had been  strenuous at times, but it had  alwavs been a-pleasure to him  to do bis bit for the sity He  spoke of" the cordial relations  which he had always i u'oyed  with his fellow aldermen, and  also with the city clerk, whose  courtesy and willingness at all  times to supply information had  been very helpful to him. Although he was leaving the council he was still a citizen of Kelowna, and he wished Ut- Mayor  and Aldermen a brieht and a  prosperous year.  The new Mayor then too* his  seat at the head of the table  amidst congratulations, and  welcomed to the board the new  members, Aid. Buck and Aid.  Rogerson, who had previon.lv  taken the customary oath of  office before Magistrate Wtddtll.  the principles of liberty and justice,  upon the inviolable fidelity to international obligation with which  the government of the United  Siates has never ceased to be inspired.  "United in the pursuits of this  supreme object, the Allies are determined individually and collectively to act with all their power  and to consent to all sacrifices to  bring a victorious close to a conflict  upon which they are convinced  not only their own safety and prosperity depends, but also the future  of civilization itself."  The following proclamation, in  response lo the Allies' note, by  the Emperor to the German people  li,s been officially published in  Berlin:  "Our enemies loive dropped the  mask. Aftet iciusiog witfi scorn  and hypocritical wc.ids of love of  peace and humanity our honest  peace offer, they have now, in their  reply to the United Stat?*, gene  beyond that and admitted their  lust for conquest, the biseness of  which is further enhanced by their  calumnious assertions. Iheiraim  is the rrushing of Gr-nr any, the  dit-membeimeiil of the powers allied with us and the enslavement  of the freedom of Europe and the  seas, under the same yoke that  Greec , with gmshing of teeth,  now is enduring.   -  "But what th.y could pit r< hieve  In thirty months of b'omli st fighting and unscrupulous economic  war. ihey will also fail to acr om-  plish in the future. Our glorious  victo ies and the iron strength of  will wilh which our fighting people  at the front and at home have  borne all hardships and distress  guarantee thnt also in* the future  our beloved fatherland has nothing  to fear. Burning indignation and  holy wrath will redouble the  strength of every German man and  woman, whether it is devoted to  fighting, to work or to suffering.  "We are ready for all sacrifices.  The God who planted his glorious  spirit of freedom in the hearts of  our brave people will also give us  and our loyal allies, tested in battle, the full victory over all the  enemies' lust for power and rage  for destruction.  (Signed)   "WILHELMI.R."  Sessions of the County Court  were held Tuesday and Wednesday of this week in Kelowna,  His Honour Judge Swaasor.  presiding. The inadequacy and  i inconvenience of the present  I courthouse was very strongly  emphasized when the crowd of  witnesses called in one of tbe  cases was sufficient to pack th-  building to the doors, and producing a suffocating it:no.,ph a*  which was decidedly unpleasant.  The situation was further aggravated by inconvenient calls  over the telephone for the provincial constable, who uses the  room as his office.  His Honour expressed his disgust very strongly, leclariig  that it was a great disgrace  that a citv the size of Kelowna  should have to put up with such  a miserable arrangement.  JUDGMENT FAVOURS THE  WESTERN CANNERS  Judgment was handed down  Tuesday in the case of the Western Canners, Ltd., versus T. W.  S. Taylor, in which the former  sued Taylor for Jiooo damages  for breach of his contract to  supply the Cannery with tomatoes from, his ranch. The plaintiffs claimed to have suffered  considerable loss by reason of  plaintiff and other growers taking advantage of tr favourable  market and selling large portions of their crops elsewhere,  thereby causing the Cannery to  stand idle for several days  from lack of tomatoes.  Judgment was given for the  Western Canners, Ltd., damages  being,assessed at S75 and costs.  OCCIDENTAL GETS C* AIM  IN FULL  Another judgment given of  especial interest to local farmers and growers was in the ca3e  where the Occidental Fruit Co.,  sued Messrs. Geofge Vipond a.  Co., of Winnipeg, for $517, the  value of a car of semi-ripe tomatoes, shipped to the order of  the latter, and of which they  afterwards refused to take delivery. His Honour said there  was no doubt that the tomatoes  had been carefully inspected by  the purchasers' agent beforehand  and shipped in proper condition  and in good faith by the plaintiffs. He especially complimented Mr. Leopold Hayes on the  clear and businesslike manner  in which he had given his evidence. Plaintiffs were awarded  the full amount of their claim  with costs, and a counter claim  for S896.80 loss and damages in  connection with two previous  cars, dismissed.  HEARS DISPUTES OVER  CROP AGREEMENTS  On Tuesday the Court was  occupied with the hearing of a  case ih which an Italian nutrcd  Zanta sued Manly Byrns for So;  balance due under a crop agreement. The claim was admitted  but a counter claim was entered  for S750 damage for neglect of  cultivation and irrigation. Mr.  R. B. Kerr appeared for the  plaintiff and Mr. E. C. Weddell  for the defendant. The counter  claim was disallowed and judgment given to the plaintiff for  the Sq.s and costs.  Another crop agreement case  between Christanti and three  other Italians against Louis  Ramponi was settled ont ����i  court, an adjournment being  made to allow the parties tut lie  dispute to get together. *  James A.

Phone 312  Printed Butter  Wrappers  According to the new  Dominion Government  regulations all farmers  who sell butter either  to the stores or private-  ly, are required to have  it properly covered in  a wrapper on which  MUST appear in pro.  minent letters the words  "DAIRY BUTTER."  The (act is also emphasized that all butter  in such packages must  be of the full net weight  of sixteen ounces, and  in default of same a  fine of from $10 to $30  for each offence is im-  posed. Whey butter  must be so labelled  even when mixed with  dairy butter, and dairy  butter retains its label  though it be mixed  with the creamery pro*  duct.  You can be supplied  with neatly - printed  wrappers for your  butter atthe Kelowna  Record Office, for the  following prices:  1 A APAPER er PRINTINC  1 \J\J       INCLUDED  $1.50  200  ��>    ����  2.00  500  ����    ii  3.15  000  H    ti  4.50  These prices include Both the  Paper, which Is the best obtainable  for the purpose, and the Printing  of same.   Please note this.  Owing to the extraordinary rise in the price of butter  parchment (which haa gone up over 100 per cent) we  have been reluctantly obliged to raise our prices slightly.  Nearly all thia paper waa previously manufactured in Belgium, and needless to aay thia supply haa been entirely  cut off. Unfortunately there ia no guarantee against further increases, indeed, they are more than likely.  Kelowna Record  Mrs.  PRANCES A.  L.B.K.-.

ROYAL STANDARD  FIELD SEEDS  WE are extending our already extensive field seed business for 1917. It  is the desire of the Canadian Government that the people produce  as much as possible during the eiuuing year, and we are arranging,  with the leading dealers throughout British Columbia and Alberta to carry  a complete line of ROYAL STANDARD FIELD SEEDS. These seeds are  the choicest it is possible t secure in the WorlJ's Market. They are Government inspected and carefully selected for purity.  Seeds should be purchased early as prices inevitably advance as the  Season progresses. In all probability the market will be short nd it will be  difficult later in the year to make purchases.  Order ROYAL STANDARD Field Seeds NOW. If your dealer cannot supply you write us and we will ship to you direct.
