 ^\jc*yrA  ,\*\i>Xo*��Ow^  lUcotb  VOL. XI.  NO. 39  iUR  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, AUGUST 14, 1919.���4 PACES  77  z  $1.50 Per Annum  Children Get Medals  Commemorating Peace  Impressive Gathering in Park  Follows Parade  Kelowna's Peace Celebration,  which ww combined with this  week's Regatta, took the form of a  procession and gathering in the  park. The desire was to impress  the minds of the rising generation  with the great significance of the  successful termination of the great  war and the victory of Britain and  and her- allies over a terrible  enemy. The bronze medals which  were presented to every child were  intended as a tangible reminder of  the occasion. The celebration was  taken part in bv visitors from all  over the riding, almost every school  bring represented.  The procession which formed at  the public school included the city  band, Mayor and aldermen, War  Veterans, Boy Scouts and Cubs,  and school children of Kelowna  and surrounding districts to the  number of 500. The march waa  by way of main street to the city  park where a platform had been  arranged to accommodate the  various speakers, the children being  arranged on the grass in front. On  the platform were Mayor D. W.  Sutherland, who presided, J. W.  Jones, M.P.P., Brig-Gen. A. R.  Harman, C.M.G., D.S.O., Col. Belson, Col. Moody, Major Trail, Lt.  Hewetson, Comdr. T. W. Stirling,  R.N., with Mrs. Harman. Mrs. Belson, Mrs. J. W,'Jones, Mrs. Trail.  As soon as the children were  arranged in front of the platform  Mayor Sutherland commenced the  proceedings by briefly announcing  the objects of the gathering, the  celebration of peace, the last act  in the great war which had so  recently ended.  Led by the band the gathering  then rose and sang "The Maple  Leaf," after which the local member, Mr. J. W. Jones was called  upon for a brief address. The  occasion was a unique one, he  said, and one. which would be remembered in yeara to come. A  few months ago we we.e celebrating the signing of peace, and all  hoped it would be world-wide and  permanent. Five yeara ago a  ahudder went through the Empire  when war was declared, but we  had now reached the end of the  trail, and the enemy beaten. We  had not sought conquest, but to  defend ourselves against a nation  which had hoped to impose its will  upon the world.  With pride we could look back  upon the achievements of the  Dominion in raising an army to go  to the assistance of the mother  country. Within ten weeks 35,000  men from Canada had been on  their way to Great Britain. He  hoped the young people especially  would never forget their glorious  deeds, and always remain true to  British ideals.  Col. Belson impressed upon the  children that though the  veterans were endeavoring to make  Canada a Better place to live in,  the future rested with the young  people who are growing up. Kelowna had reason to be proud of  the fact that the district had created almost a record in the Empire  for enlistment. The returned man,  he said, was not to be regarded aa  a hero, but simply as one who had  seen his duty and had done it, and  it was a matter for pride ant] glory  that ao many had responded to the  call.  Major Traill, one ot the little  band of "contemptiblea" of the  Imperial army which were rushed  to Prance to bear the firat shock of  the German onslaught, recalled  the fact that onlv four divisions, or  80,000 men had been available,  compared with the sixty divisions  of British troops alone which were  fighting in France at the end of  1918. What lives and bloodshed  would have been saved if such an  army had been ready for the field  at the outset I The more' of it all  waa to be prepared. This was not  the end of war, though the next  one might be a long way off.  General Harman, who was to  present the peace medals to the  children, first addressed them in a  delightfully interesting way regarding the significance of the occasion,  and the importance of remembering the outstanding events of the  End of Lacrosse and  Baseball Leagues  The closing games of the baseball and lacrosse leagues took place  this week, aa part of the regatta  second day programme.  The baseball game was between  Enderby and Kelowna and resulted in a win for the home team by  5 to 4. This, however, still leaves  Enderby top of the league with  Kelowna a good second.  In lacrosse, Armstrong the invincible, waa down to meet the local  boys and though they did not actually meet defeat they came pretty  near it, the score being 4-4. Luck  contributed to save Armstrong  from what would have been their  firat loss, for during the heat of a  disphte, when everybody's attention waa distracted a wide-awake  Armstrong player got in a snatch  goal which tied the score.  Needless to saySAronatrong ends  easily first in the league with Kelowna and Vernon, in the order  nam<*d, lagging sadly behind.  LEAGUE  STANDINGS  BASEBALL  Garnet Run*  Turn   .

Twelve miles of survey  work haa already been accomplished. There remains a further five  miles to be surveyed before Taft is  reached. When the contract haa  been awarded the work will be  puahed forward with as little delay  as possible in order that the road  may be opened up at the earliest  possible moment.  A-^^VWV  Prince of Wales Will Visit  Kelowna  Owing to a change which has been made in the itinerary  of the Prince of Wales and party on their visit to the west,  the interesting announcement has been made in an official  communication to the Mayor that Kelowna is to be included  in the list of places visited. On arrival at Penticton some-  where about the first of October, the party will travel north  by boat to Kelowns where automobiles will be waiting to  carry them by road to Vernon, returning to Penticton by  boat.   The royal party arrived in Canada Tuesday.  Kelowna's Annual Regatta Brings  Record Crowds to the City  Two Days' Programme of Keenly Contested Aquatic and Field  Events   -   Flying Man Arrives Late But gives Fine Display  Mr. Francis R. Jones, F.R.G.S.,  of the Overseas Club, will address  a meeting at the Aquatic grand  stand to-morrow night at 8 p.m.  on the subject "The British Empire  in War and Peace."  Taylor   returned last  interesting motor  Mr. Jack  week from  trip which included Vancouver,  Victoria, Seattle, Spokane and  Midway. A journey of well over  700 miles was covered without  mishap, a fact which speaka well  not only for the car but for the  skill and care of the driver. The  party consisted of Mr. and Mrs.  Taylor and Margaret, Mrs. Henry  Burtch and Dave Wardlaw.  past few years. There were a few  dates which muat be remembered.  The first was August 4th, 1914,  when the war began. The next  was November I Ith, 1918, when  the Armistice was signed. This  waa perhaps the greatest date of  all, for then Germany deliberately  dropped her tail and admitted  defeat. After that came the formal  signing of peace on June 28th,  1919. Much of thia had been due  to the gallant troops from Canada  and Australia. Another thing he  wanted the young people to re  member was that they belonged to  the greatest union of nations in the  world. They could talk about the  League of Nations, but there never  had been nor ever would be a  league like the British Empire. It  was the greatest thing in the world  and the feeling that this Empire  was at stake had made their fathers  and brothers respond to the call  Kelowna had been only aecond in  the Empire for sending the greatest number of men���over 1700.  aC. itself had set 50,000 or 10 per  cent, of the population to the war,  of whom half had been casualties.  He waa sorry to tell all these  young people that thev would live  to see another war with Germany.  For thia they must be ready and  not show one minutes hesitation in  coming to their country's need.  "O Canada" was the sung and  the ceremony of presenting the  medals begun.  For thirteen yeara Kelowna haa  held ita annual regatta, but none  more successfully than the one  which took place during the past  two daya. The crowds not only  of local people, but of visitors  from all parts - of the valley, who  thronged the pavilion, grandstand  and promenade, made clear to  everybody that not only haa the  set-back due to the war been recovered, but that still greater developments may be looked for in  the next few yeara. Kelowna ia  ideally situated tor such an affair,  and when aome of our transportation difficulties have been overcome an ever-increasing throng of  visitors is to be looked for. One  thing is certain, that more accomodation must be provided for the  public, the present capacity of the  pavilion being ridiculously inadequate.  The weather Wednesdav afternoon, when the programme commenced, was none too good, and  some of the events were rendered  difficult by the stiff and changeable wind and rough water. Thursday, however, waa all the heart  could desire. Clouds had given  place to bright sunshine, and the  breeze was just sufficient to keep  things fresh and cool. On the  second day, too, the disappointment which had been felt ovei the  non-appearance of the aviator, Lt.  Trim, was dispelled by his appearing at the height of the programme,  small bird-like shape floating  gracefully from Bear Creek. Descending on the polo grounds to  the south of the town he had a  brief rest to allow for some slight  repaira, and by 4.30 waa circling  around cleverly in front of the  crowd or high. up in the air showing stunts such as looping-the-loop,  spinning nose dive, and the like  It waa a striking and skilful per  formance and the daring young  aviator waa loudly applauded.  A pleasing feature was the in  crease in entries making keener  competition and adding greater in  terest to the different events. On  the whole the committee of the  Aquatic Association and more especially the energetic president,  Mr. W. Crawford, and secretary,  Mr. H. G. M. Wilson, are to be  congratulated on the success of  the affair.  Dances were held each evening  following the programme and on  Thursday the confetti carnival  turned the usually quiet promenade into a acene of life and gaiety  Following is a list of the events  with the prize winners:���  FIELD EVENTS  Broad Jump, Open  I.E.

C.P.R. to Build Huge  Ice Storage in Kelowna  That the increasing demands  from Kelowna for ice for refrigerator cara haa induced the CP.R. tb  plan the erection of a large ice  storage building here was the information given out by Mr. O. C.  Walker, of Winnipeg, inspector of  refrigeration service, on his visit  here a few days ago. At present  all cars are being iced at the Landing before being sent down here.  This results in a very considerable  wastage of ice especially if the  car has to stay here any length of  time. A storage building here  would obviate this and make possible much better service. The  building will cost in the neighbourhood of $25,000. The ice is  brought down from Banff during  the Spring by special ice trains,  thousands of tons being needed  for the requirements of the valley  fruit traffic.'  Lieut. Trim Was Held  Up by Heavy Fogs  at Chilliwack  Hampered by clouds and fog in  the neighborhood of Chilliwack,  Lieut. Trim, the young aviator who  waa to take the place of Hoy and  Dixon in the flying exhibition at  the Regatta, was unable to reach  Kelowna until the afternoon of the  second day. The disappointment  over his non-arrival was very keen  at first, and the wires were kept  busy seeking information aa to his  whereabouts. Finally word came  of his start from Chilliwack at 11.15  and he was expected to arrive here  soon alter one. He had to descend  however, at Merritt for fresh gasoline aupplies, and it waa nearly  four o'clock before he waa sighted,  about 8000 feet up, sailing gracefully, from Bear Creek way. A  slight mishap in landing due to  confusion of signals, cauaed the  loss of a tire, but as soon as this  was fixed a fresh ascent was made  and a very aatisfactory demonstration given before the crowd assembled in the Park. Lieut. Trim is a  skilful flyer, though modest withal,  and handles his little machine well.  Following   (he   Regatta   Lieut.  Trim is  to  give local   people  chance to experience the thrills of  flight in the clouds.  Boys' Diving  I, Elwyn V  Weddell.

Campaign to Promote  Metric System  "Dollar-Meter-Liter-Gram" is one  slogan with which the World Trade  Club of San Francisco, U.S.A., re  presenting over 500 of that city's  leading manufacturing merchants,  has started its campaign for the  world-wide adoption of the metric  units of measurement. "Keep the  World War Won" is another. Still  another is: "Our Weights and Measures Made in Germany." Thi  club's arguments show that th  weighta and measurements now  used by Britannia and the United  States were forced upon England  by the German Hanaeatic Trading  League centuries ago. Germany  herself scrapped the old units in  1871, and adopted the metric in  tern, which was invented by t  Briton, James Watt.  Last Fridav evening in the Board  of Trade room, a meeting was held  addressed by Mr. Bailey, chairman  of Advisory Board of Farmers' Institute, Mr. R. A. Copeland, president of United Farmers, and Mr.  Laidman, of Vernon, who spoke,  on the proposed amalgamation of  Farmera' Institutes and United  Farmers Sentiment seemed strongly in favor of the proposal and a  resolution was passed giving it  hearty endorsation.  Finals Played Saturday  Id Tennis Tournament  Keen Interest is Display and  Good Tennis Witnessed  The great enthusiasm and interest which were taken in the concluding games Saturday of the  Okanagan Tennis tournament have  fully justified the committee in  reviving this annual event. The  Club grounds and pavilion, for  which visitors had much praise to  offer were crowded with spectators.  The semi-finals and final of the  Ladies' Doubles were played off  Friday afternoon, the latter between Mrs. Wilson and Mrs McDonald and Mrs. Lyell and Mias  Scott-Allan. This was one of the  most exciting games of the week,  the former pair just winning by  10-8 in the final set. Finals in the  other events were played Saturday  afternoon, ladies, Mrs. Belson and  Mrs. Wilson, again providing the  most exciting gsmea of the day in  the final ladies' aingle, Mrs. Wilson  winning a splendid game by 9-7.  The men's singles followed, G. E.  Seon meeting P. G. Dodwell of  Summerland. The former did not  play up to form shown in the previous dajs, and what had been  hoped to be a closely contested  game resulted in an easy win for  the latter.  The mixed doubles was a well-  contested match, Mr. and Mr*.  Wilson winning irr-the final set by  6-3. The Men's Doubles ended  the programme, Dodwell and Belson beating Mallam and Stubbs in  three straight sets by 6-1,6-3, 6-2.  Although the number of entries -  was smaller than in previous years  the standard of play was much  higher, many excellent games being witnessed during the week.

The married women's  race was a record for speedl  On Monday evening last a number of the young men of the district got together and organized an  athletic club.

The official title of the organization  is "The Rutland Athletic Club" and  the following officers were elected :  president, Leon Fitzpatrick ; vice-  president, Arthur Gray ; sec.-lreas ,  George Trask. A committee of  five was also elected to assist the  executive, The following are the  members of the committee: W.  Quigley, A. Money, Elwood Fleming, M. Bird and F. Graham. The  starting of a gymnasium Has one  of the suggestions brought forward  and found much favor. The question of playing picked teams fiom  the two districts of Rutland and  Ellison was discussed very  thoroughly and the meeting finally  adopted a motion to the effect that  only club membera be permitted  to play on the teams, except on  special occasions, and then the  consent of the whole club muat be  obtained.

Britain's Offensive  Against Profiteers  Britain is .preparing to lire the  first shot in her offensive-against  profiteers. Steps are being taken  to follow up the announcement  that local tribunala representing  the workers and the-' consumers  will be established, with power to  assess fines against profiteers, and  ���ending the more flagrant cues to  the courts, which will be empower-  ed to inflict thousand dollar fines  or six months' imprisonment. The  government believes that the small  traders are the greateat profiteers,  rather than the wholesalers or  manufacturers.  The government's bill providing  prosecution and penalty for persons found guilty of profiteering  passed the first reading in the  house on Friday laat.  Orders for  Local  Scouts  *��t phcparcd*      Kelowna Troop  Troop First;  Self Last  Edited by "Wolf."   Aug. 12, 1919  An invitation has been sent to  the Kelowna Troop by Scoutmaster Zimmerman of the Summerland  Troop for a dance which the latter  troop is giving on Wednesday,  August 20th. We do not hesitate  in saying that every member of the  troop would be only too delighted  to go, the only question being  whether they will be able to get  away. Nevertheless we hope that  the troop will be well represented  in this social event.  The Scoutmaster has received a  letter from provincial headquarters  stating lhat there is a considerable  amount of surplus ordnance supplies to be distributed among the  troops of this province. This troop  will of course come into its share  of these supplies, but in order to  find out exactly what is wanted it  will be necessary to call a special  meeting of the Court ot Honour.  In the meantime any scout who  haa a suggestion to make concerning these supplies may bring his  suggestion before the scoutmaster.  The following are the ordnance  supplies: 60 ground sheets, 595  haversacks, 80 waterbottles, 200  mess tins, 115 s:gnalling poles and  flags (semaphore or morse), 80  field dressings.  The following is a continuation  of the winning scout diary : "After  various routine items supper at  last was called, bringing with it  roast beef, Ate. Football soon followed supper and the game waa  between the odds and the evens.  The Odds won, two to one. After  a refreshing wash we gathered  round the camp fire for music and  a story. After this we got ready  for bed,  i   Tuesday, July 1st.  We passed a somewhat sleepless night and were awakened at  7.30 a.m. by a sleepy rendering of  reveille, by P. L. George Mantle.  We aired our blankets and had a  wash. Then we got into our uniform and went on parade to hoist  the flag and say prayers. After an  interval we were relieved to hear  the firat meal call, indicating our  approaching breakfaat. Breakfast  finished we prepared for tent inspection by folding our blankets  and doing a thousand and one  other jobs. In the inspection the  Cougers came first. Tent inspection being over we lined up for  company drill and physical jerks.  Then came free-to-patrols and then  a wild strawberry hike. There  were very few of the latter, however, and we returned to camp,  hot and hungry. We rested up a  bit after the hike and the most energetic of us tidied our tent  grounds. First call for dinner  soon came and we enjoyed what  there was of a scanty meal. After  dinnei came compulsory rest hour.  When our rest hour was over the  camp orderlies, namely the Eagles,  marked of! the athletic grounds  while the rest of the troop did  various tidying up jobs. Just at  this time Instructor F. C. Buck accompanied by Robert Dykes drove  into camp. They brought various  very necessary provisions. After  a short talk they started for home,  taking Quartermaster Anthony DuMoulin with them. We next prepared for a scouting game. The  whistle blew and we fell in ready  for the game. Gum was distributed and two parties set out to play  the game of Scout Meets Scout.  The party under R.L. George Mantle won.  When we got back to camp we  had a bathing parade and free in  bounds. Then at 6.30 a daily  Court of Honour waa held and  had to appear for a pievious misdemeanor. Supper at last arrived,  and, following that obvious near*.  Serious Shortage  of Sugar Being Felt  1 he serious shortage of sugar on  the prairies is causing much anxiety  to fruit men in the prairie provinces,  who see a serious falling off in  sales due to interference with domestic canning operations. Manitoba and Saskatchewan are reported to be short 300 carloads and  many dealers have in consequence  had to cancel large orders for  B.C. fruit. In order to relieve the  situation the Dominion government  has placed a temporary embargo  on the export of granulated sugar  until home requirements have been  met. The B.C. Refinery which has  an output of fifteen cars a day, is  reported to be sold ahead in B.C.  and Alberta to the extent of 350  cars.  It is understood in Kamloops  that the government has purchased  a site for a new post office.  Fire fighters in the Kootenay  District report that the situation  there is well under control and  that moat of the fires have been  put out.  Two B. C. aviators have left for  the whaling stations to look over  the possibilities of seaplanes in the  whaling industry. Nothing can be  done with machines this year.  Professor Ernst Heinrich Haeckel  professor of zoology at the University of Jena and famous throughout  the world tor his research work  supporting the theory of evolution,  and author of "The Riddle of the  Universe," died Saturday.

"A chiul'i amanu ye latin' notes and fcth, he'll  pient then."���Burns.  1 [hope by the time these lines appear  everybody will have had a real nappy  peace celebration and a record-breaking  aquatic meeting held. It is a great occasion���and that ia no dream, Dreams,  however, exist and persist, and I cannot  but refer to the very unpeaceful condition  of the world despite the partial cessation  of hostilities. There is probable less peace  throughout the world to-day than there  was a year ago, and it is well to remember in our rejoicing that we still have a  hard row to hoe ere we win through to  the good time which is assuredly ahead  of us. Meantime it ia appropriate to remember Kipling's words:-  Lord God of hosts be with us yet  Lest we forget, lest we forget.  Say I have you noticed the behaviour of  the lake recently*?��� calm, placid, a veritable picture of perfect restfulness during  the day. Evening comes on with its mind-  stilling influence, but it seems to have a  quite different effect on the qiiet deceitful waters which have become notably  turbulent at the setting of tho tun on  recent evenings.  It is an old belief that faith has power  to remove mountains. The trouble is with  the degree  or  quality of  faith necessary  for  this demonstration.   1 thought I had  discovered a harder thing than the remov.  al of mountains, viz., catching Ash  in  the  Okanagan Lake, and in my haste declared  that it was not possible to do so, either by  faith or with bait.    This conviction on my  parr got a severe jolt  by seeing with my  own eyes at  least  one  fish  taken, and I  know that since that sensational spectacle  a   keen fisherman  has  had fairish luck;  not  a miraculous draught  of  fishes you  know but a fairly creditable catch.  e        a  a  Among the  notable incidents in Euro.  pean royal circles reported in the last few  days, was (he theft of the  pants of  the  Grand Duke somebody or other of  Hun  gary.   This same individual, who declares  himself a thorough democrat (whatever  he may mean  by that), has been elected  to the head of the Hungarian Republic (?)  It does not appear whether the theft of  the trousers has  anything to do with this  party's democratic leanings or not.  Another interesting item is the express*  ed desire of the ex-Kaiser to be left alone  and allowed to live as a private gentleman. How the poor man is going to man.  age this with no previous experience of  the role is beyond my comprehension. It  is to be noted that he has a very positive  objection to being tried in London. I wonder why. "The wicked flee when no man  fmrsueth, but the righteous are bold as a  ion."  To come to real royal personages and  matters pertaining thereto. It ia reported  that H.R.H. the Prince of. Wales will visit  Kelowna on hia Canadian tour after all.  Pity he could not be here for the regatta.  Come when he may 1 am sure he'll "aye  be welcome early" as the auld sang says.  He is a "returned man" too, remember.  E. W.
