 VOL. V.   NO. 14.  Meeting of  City Council  1 Proposed Extenaion of Water  Street���Feeding of Prisoners  KELOWNA. BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY,  FEB. 27, 1913.  $1.50 Per Annum.  The city council met at usual  Friday morning latt with a full  attendance of members.  Mr, R. H. Parkinaon wat present  with a plan of the proposed extension of Water street from Lake  avenue to Park avenue. He also  submitted a petition from the owners of the property on the west  tide of Pendozi street which requested the council to continue  the street according to the plan.  Mr. Parkinton taid that all the  .owners had tigned the petition  except the Bank of Montreal.  A letter waa read from the manager of the Bank of Montreal  objecting very strongly to the  street which would cut off a portion  of the lot on which the retidence  stood nnd on which, he taid, considerable money had been spent  in improvements. He suggested  an alternative route missing the  Bank property. This, however,  was not received with favor nor  was a proposal of Mr. Parkinson's  to make the street 45 feet wide  instead of 66 feet.  The clerk was inttructed to in-  orm  the  local   manager of   the  [Bank  of  Montreal that excepting  ;the  bank all the property  ownert  affected  by  the  propoted   ttreet  ad petitioned the council to open  : and  had  offered to deed the  necessary land  to  the  city ; that  the council had unanimously decided that the new ttreet according to Mr. Parkinton't plan would  be in the best interests of the city.  If the bank persisted   in   refusing  to deed to the citv free of  charge  the  portion of the rear of the lot  required for the street it would be  necessary  to  buy  the  land from  the ownert and charge  the  purchase price against them together  with all interett and other charges  involved in the issuing of  debentures.   Added  to  this great and  unnecessary   expense   would   be  the cost of expropriation proceeding! which the city would have to  institute againtt the bank if it still  refused to tell the land.   Thit wat  a roundabout and  watteful  proceeding which  it  was very desirable to  avoid.     The clerk   wai  also atked to request the  bank't  local  manager to tend a copy of  the correspondence to headquarters.  Mr. R. Duncan, manager of the  opera house waited on the council  in reference to complaints which  had been made regarding the seating in the Opera house. It appeared, however, that there had been  a misunderstanding as to the width  of aisles required by the new  �� Building By-law, and it was found  that the aitlet in the opera house  fulfilled fll requirements. Mr.  Duncan taid it wat hit intention  shortly to replace the old seats  with proper opera chairs. He also  stated in reply to a question that  the lantern in the opera house had  been enclosed in a tin and asbestos  lined box at a safeguard against  fire.  Mr. Bornholdt, leader of the city  band, addressed the council on  the need of more and better instruments. The band had only  fourteen instruments in all and  these had been in use for many  years and were worn and out-of-  date. Some new instruments were  needed before anv progress could  be made in training a good band.  He estimated that nine instruments  ware needed which could be purchased second-hand but in very  satisfactory condition for about  $400. He also mentioned that the  band hed a surplus of some $200  with which it was intended to purchase uniforms.  The council promised lo give  consideration to the band's request.  The following accounts were  passed for payment:���  Thompson Stationery Co, atetionery    15.401 Wnrahir,  ��,t.  . i        r I ns .   ���  Okanagan T.I.

He said that large numbers of  drunks were being arrested who  had no money to pay fines. If they  were kept in gaol the city had to  provide meals for them, and if they  were let out on suspended sentence they were generally in trouble  again before the day was out. It  was impossible, owing to the lien vv  expense to keep taking such men  to Kamloops. He had lately tried  the plan of making prisoners work  on the streets, and he had found  that their friends were not long in  paying their fines.  It was suggested that the meals  supplied were n little too sumptuous, and that a diet of bread and  water might act as a deterrent.  It was left to the police commis-  sior^rs to find a solution, nf tH*  problem.  A letter was read from Mr, H.F.  Hicks of the men's outfitting store  on Water Street, requesting the  council to remove as soon as possible the temporary sewer construction works, which, besides being a nuisance and danger to  traffic, obstructed the view of his  store from the main street, thus  interfering with business.  It was decided to request the  engineer to remove all of the  obstruction which was possible.  The following letter was read  from the Hon. Price Ellison:  queiilly receiving. He did not  think it wise for the council to give  advice regarding real estate transactions.  E. Cox, eewer time cheque $ 30,20  W. Wilson    do  4.65  R. Jennings  do  13.65  S.

For a number of yeare I have been subject to matters of this kind, vis., where  other people have driven horses and cattle  into Kelowna to get their own, end have  left mine on your atreeta to be impounded.  I have paid every year quite a aum of  money for pound fees and think that I  have been very unjustly deell with considering that I am a rancher in the vicinity  of Kelowna, end have no way or means of  knowing whan my animate are impounded.  I think your Pound By.law ia being  taken sdvsjitnge of by unscrupulous men.  1 do not know how your by-law reads,  whether a peraon ia to be notified when  they know the brands of the animals, or  not, but in thie case and all othera your  pound-keeper has known perfectly well  whoae animals he wss impounding, and to  keep them a week or more in many cases  without notifying us is an outrage and  nothing short of s dishonest and unscrupulous set.  1 shell be glad if you will send me e  copy ot your round By-law, so lhat I may  sse what thc regulations are.  I ask for no favours ; but 1 do aak you  to place yourself in my position with reference to matters of this kind.  Yours faithfully,  PRICE ELLISON  The mayor, aaid he had received  a still stronger letter from Mr. Ellison's foreman, The poundkeeper  had told him that the horses in  question had been running loose  around Bankhead and had eventually strayed into Mr. DeHart's  orchard where they had done considerable damage. Mr. DeHart  had requested the poundkeeper  to have them impounded.  The clerk was instrcted to send  a full explanation of the affair to  Mr. Ellison.  A letter from the Hon, the Provincial secretary announced the  appointment of Aid. J. N. Thompson and Mr. E. Weddell to the  Board of Licence Commissioners  and Aid. R. A. Copeland and Mr.  F. M. Buckland to the Board of  Police Commissioners.  A letter was read by the Mayor  from a person in Victoria requesting information as to the value  of  Aid. Thompson repotted on behalf of the Park Commissioners  lhat they had decided to purchase  1000 trees for the park and streets  and asked the council to confirm  the order. A resolution wns  passed to that effect.  The trees, it was stated, were intended to be placed upon Abbott  street, Richter street, Harvey ave.,  and Bernard avenue and the rest  in th- Park.  The Park Commissioners, it was  also mentioned, had decided to  accept the tender of Messrs. Palmer & Rogerson for the supply of.  plants for the Pnrk, and also for  the superintendence of planting  work there and on the streets from  March Ist lo November Ist. A  monthly statement was to be rendered.  Aid. Copeland slated that he had  been asked several times in reference to the payment of money due  for land taken to widen Pendozi  street.  Aid. Sutherland said that it was  impossible to give any definite information on the matter as it was  entirely a question of the debenture market.  Mayor Jones drew the attention  of the council to the fact lhat the  Attorney-General, Mr. Bowser, had  lately introduced into the legislature certain amendments to the  Liquor Act, and to the Municipal  Clauses Act which would, if allowed to become law, hnve the effect  of greatly curtailing the power of  municipalities to deal with the  licence question within their own  boundaries. He suggested that  the council pass a resolution of  protest against the measures.  Aid. Cosens raiaed the objection  that the uniform hours of closing  nf hotels which the amendments  in question proposed to fix would  be on advantage rather than otherwise.  Aid. Sutherland, however, pointed out that it was not nny question  of hours in which the council were  especially interested, but the inter-  'erence of the legislature with their  powers as a municipality. There  had been a steady tendency during  the past few years to place restrictions upon the powers of local  governing bodies and it was  against this that they should lodge  a protest.  Aid. Cosens withdrawing his  objection a unanimous resolution  was passed protesting against the  proposed amendments in so far as  they interfered 'villi the powers of  municipnlities.  Aid. Thompson asked if the  Telephone Co. were carrying out  their understanding with the council to place poles upon lanes where  possible so as to avoid main street'.  He had noticed that preparations  were being made to place a line of  poles on a street where a lane was  available.  The clerk was instructed to write  the company informing them that  poles must be placed upon lanes  where possible, and requesting  them to submit to the council plans  of new pole lines.  The two new by-laws, Nfis. 128  and 129, relating to sewer connections and regulating plumbing  work were given a second reading  and the council then went into  committee of the whole lo con  sider them. Very little alteration  was made, however, to them and  on rising from committee the bylaws were given a third reading  Alleged Wholesale .Embezzlement of Poll Tax  Tobacco Factory is  Modern Building  for Tobacco Company  Information of a huge scandal  in connection with the collection  of the Revenue Tax, or "poll tax"  as it was popularly known, in the  Okanagan have leaked out during  the week, and it is stated that Ira  Cutler, well-known throughout (he  valley as collector of thc tax before  its abolition hy the government,  has been arrested in Chicago and  brought back on a charge of embezzlement. The sum involved is  said to amount to nearly $5000.  The fraud, which, it appears,  must have been going on for some  time, was accomplished bv means  of forged receipt books, prepared  in imitation of those issued by the  government. Armed with these a  collector would be tinder no immediate obligation to make returns  to his department, and would  probably hope for the approaching  abandonment of the tax to cover  up his tracks.  New Shoe Store Opened  Messrs. W.   E.   Tait   &   Co.   are  opening within the next few  days  a shoe store in the shooting gallery  building which hns   been   remod-  delled, and a   new   modem   plate  glass window put in.    It is claimed  that this is the only store in the interior of B. C. devoted  exclusively  to shoes.    The  firm   has   already  a   large   business   in   Kamloops,  where they have   been   for  some  five years.    The store is lo be   on  strictly  up-io-tlale   lines,   both   in  interior fittings and in stock carried  which is to include the   best Canadian and American makes.     Mr.  Tait will personally manage affairs  and if energy and business experience can accomplish anything he  will   certainly   make   good.     Mr.  Tait is a hustler by nature,   and   a  long association with such firms as  Ryans of Winnipeg, and Starks of  Vancouver, has given him a   wide  knowledge of the   shoe   business.  It was hoped to have the store   in  shape to open Salurday but  there  is some doubt as  to   whether  the  carpenters will finish their work in  time to allow this to be done.  Dr. Westbrook to be President  of B.C. University  Dr. Westbrook, dean of th^  faculty of Medicine of Minneto'a  University, is to be president of  the University of British Columbia  and to bear an historic and important part in the laying of the foundations of this seat or higher education for Western Canada. Announcement of the other appointments in connection with the  adminstration of university affairs  is being defened until Dr. Westbrook has arrived and been  consulted with respect thereto. Dr.  Westbrook is Canadian born and  has had a distinguished career,  having been patholigist and bacteriologist of distinction and graduate of leading Canadian and British  Universities.  The tobacco industry in the Kelowna district is becoming more  widely known throughout British  Columbia, Canada generally, and  the British Isles than perhaps the  average Kelowna citizen has yet  begun to realize.  I'he British North American Tobacco Co., under the energetic  management of Mr. A. W. Boweer,  is raising the industry to a level in  which it has already begun to tell  as an important item in the development of the city and district.  A trip round the large new factory  which has just been completed on  lillis slreet, would no doubt be a  revelation to most people and perhaps a short description of the  building and what is doing there  m:ght be of interest.  The building is a handsome  three story brick structure designed on strictly modern lines, and  with a view to producing a sub-  st ntial economically-operated factory in which the manufacture of  tobacco and cigars from the taking  in of the raw leaf to the packing  and shipment of the finished product could proceed wilh the greatest efficiency and convenience.  The way in which this desirable  result has been achieved is a credit  not only to the arrhitect, Mr. P. E.  Corby, and to the contractor, Mr.  Geo. E. Bowser (brother of the  company's manager), but also to  the manager himself whose wide  knowledge of the business has  enabled him to suggest the general  plan of the building.  The manufacturing process commences on the upper floor to  which the raw leaf is conveyed by  means of an electric elevator.  Here aie the three large, fermenting rooms where the leaf is subjected to a series of scientifically  regulated sweating or fermenting  processes, imparting the color and  bringing out that delicate aroma  which has placed B.N.A.T.Co.  cigars on a plane of equality with  the productions of some of the  oldest tobacco producing districts1  oft!

In the spring  railway  trackage  will be put in with a loading and  unloading platform.  At present there are some 75  hands employed in the factory, but  this number will be largely increased as soon as the contract rs  have completed their work on the  building. The output at present  is something like 50,000 cigars a  week, but orders come in so fast  that the factory is still some 200,-  000 behind. The company's present payroll is about $1,000 per  week.  There are about 125 men employed on the company's farms  preparing the seed beds, and the  area of about 575 acres which the  ci mpany will themselves plant.  In addition it is expected that a  arge crop will be derived from  farmers it the vicinity. The seed  beds alone cover seven acres.  35 acres of the fine Sumatra leaf  will be planted under cheesecloth  tents, a method which proved a  gteat success last yesr.  The company is planning some  valuable publicity work for the  coming season, a great deal of the  benefit from which will fall to the  district generally. The provincial  government is placing in the Vancouver Progress Club at its own  expense a comprehensive exhibit  of Kelowna cigars and tobrcci,  and another exhibit is to be taken  to Calgary by the C.P.R.  Although much has been done  in the past year ot two, and the  growing of tobacco is long past the  experimental stage, it can hardly  be said that the industry locally is  in anything but thit infant singe,  and great things are looked for in  the next lew years.

On this floor is also a  sorting room where the leaf is  graded according to quality for  various purposes.  For (he stripping process, which  consists of tearing off the thick  veins of the leaves, leaving them  of an even thickness for wrapping  of cigars, and removing all "sticks,"  space is found on the second floor.  This operation is performed by  girls for whom a comfortable room  with all sanitary convenience is  provided. The drying room is  close by, where all excess of moisture is taken from the tobacco, and  the general workroom, where a  large staff is employed on lhe  actual making of the cigars. The  wonderful speed with which the  tobacco was handled and the  cleverness of manipulation of the  frail " wrappers " which are rolled  around the " filler " was interesting  to watch.  The boxes are filled and labelled on this floor, the smell of tht  cedar boxes adding to the general  pleasant scent which pervades th  building. A small private office  is also provided for the sal  manager.  On the ground floor is a large  storeroom for the new leaf ; the  bonded warehouse where the  cigars await the inspection of the  revenue officei, and a storeroom  for empty boxes, &c. To the rear,  is a large boiler house where the  heating is provided for the whole  building.  The general offices are in front  and these are fitted out in a handsome yet pleasingly tastelul manner. To the right is Mr. Bowser's  private office, a cosy little room  with an open fireplace, the tiling  on which shows B.N.A.T.CO., the  distinguishing mark of all the company's manufactures.

No  secret is made of the fact that lhe  bill is designed to check German  exploits of this kind. For several  months past at intervals, there have  been reports of mysterious flights  of airships over one or olher parts  of the country, and the introduction of the new measure, coupled  with a governmental request to the  opposition not to delay its progress  through Parliament is taken to  mean that the government has  awakened to the fact that foreign  airships have actually flown over  English territory.  Mr. E, Foley-Bennett and the  Messts.

Representatives of the Dominion  Can nets' Association were preset't  in the interests of that concern, but  an effort for the consolidation of  interests failed. No definite conclusion was arrived at by the local  delegates but it is more than probable a cannery will be established  to work with the sister towns.  ���Penticton Herald.

Rose  has made a most favorable impression. The production is a new  one, and Mesms. Rowland and  Clifford have given ita magnificent  staging.

Dear Sir:  The taste for public discussion  is noticeably growing, and certainly  no better means than debate can  be found of making thinking a  popular exercise, or of rendering  tbe student capable of expressing  his thoughts. There is however a  tendency, which may be criticised,  of confining debates too exclusively to platform speakers.  It may be urged that by this ex-  clusiveness we obtain the best expression of thought. But this is as  arbilrary as the view of the parson  who said "We don't want thinkers,  we want believers." In truth we  need both thought and belief.  The " man in the atreet" appearing in the debating hall should be  welcomed as a living part of the  debate. His beliefs, even when  most antiquated are usually based  on some tradition of thought in the  past. No genuine belief is too  worthless for expression. All questions and comment from listeners  should be encouraged, even from  the youngest citizen who has  learned to speak briefly and clearly  If necessary, discussion can be  spread over several evenings.  If a definite verdict on the   sub-  ^8*  OKANAGAN DISTRICT  Ferry, Summerland ���East Summerland, Okanagan Lake  IN accordance with chapter 78, RS B.C.,  1897, " Ferries Act." the Government of  Brit..], Columbia invite applications for a  charter for e ferry to ply between Sum.  merland snd a point on the opposite side  of Okanagan Lake known as East Sum.  merland, a distance of about two miles  and three-quetera.

Department of Public Works,  Victoria, B.C., I Ith February, 1913.     4  ject brought forward ia desired,  the only way to learn the results  of a debate is to take the votes ol  those assembled. Greater thoroughness for an important discussion  could be attained by taking votes  before and after it, not necessarily  in one evening. No one who  knows the joy of being converted  by conscientious thinking, especially by weighing the arguments of  living speakers, will hesitate to  record his conversion by a change  of vote.  To decide a live issue by reckoning "points" is a worthless method.  Even for such academic questions  as "Is the Pen Mightier  than   the  Sword ?" or " Has the Invention of  Printing or of the Compass been a  Greater Benefit to Mankind ?" it is  a   dcubtfr'   kind   of  finale   to   _  school exercise.   Judges who are  willing to undertake the labour of  valuing arguments   arithmetically  would do a greater service in slut  ing arguments themselves.   How  can the " pointsmen " estimate the  big forces of the instincts and   aspirations of mankind, or of national  dangers ?    Taking an extreme  instance, lhe question,  " Should  Infanticide be Compulsory  on   Parents who Bring Children  of Die-  eased Heredity into the   World ?"  Scores of reasons could   be   given  for the affirmative.    There is only  one point for lhe negative, namely  human sentiment  at  the   present  lime.    And we could scarcely   decide by points such a   question   as  "Shall   Torture   be   Included   in  Prison Discipline r"  Point-scoring has a bad effect  on the speeches, and even on the  thought of speakers. Rapid speaking is unduly promoted, and the  wish to elaborate some important  point carefully, handicaps a speaker as much as if he had been  allotted less time than others.  Moreover, by taking the responsibility of judgment away from  an assembly, there is a loss of  moral stimulus. As in a nation, so  in debates, the problem is not  whether we can trust the people,  but lhat as we must trust the people  in all final appeals, how can they  best be educated in the fundamental laws of human history, in  judgment, and in responsibility ?

CAPITAL AUXHO(V?EP   -   $75,000  MONEY TO LOAN  On First Mortgages  Agreements for Sale Purchased  FIRE, LIFE, AND ACCIDENT INSURANCE  Items from Ellison  (From our own correspondent)  On Wednesday afternoon laat,  February 19th ah interesting series  of lectures took place in'the Public  Hall on " General Farming" bv  Mr. Reeves, and on Orchard Pests  by Mr. Brittain, and an exhibition  of Pruning was given in';Mr. JV1,  Hereron's orchard by Mr. Middle-  ton. In the evening Mr. French  gave a capital speech on orchard  cultivation, and Mr. E. Smith gave  a talk on " Cold Storage" illustrating his remarks with a set of well-  prepared diagrams, afterwards  followed by Mr. J. Forsyth Smith  with a very interesting resume of  "Market Conditions -on the Prairie."  The speakers were olosely followed in their remarks by the audience (amongst. whom were a  few of our local ladies) though  probably the report on market  conditions was the most interesting, owing to the difficulty experienced in disposing of the extra  large crops' last year. , We hope  (6 see larger audiences attending  these lectures in future, as much  can be learned even by those who  consider themselves, tote AI farmers, for there's always something  new to be found even in farming.  On Friday, the 21st inst., the  Ellison Literary Society were favored, .with a return visit from the  East Kelowna Literary Society,  when a full dress debate was held  on the question : " Resolved,, (hat  Reason is Superior to Instinct,"  Ellison taking the affirmative and  East Kelowna the negative." Mr.  Hereron, who occupied lhe rhair  in tlie temporary absence of the  president, welcomed, the visitors  in a few well-chosen remarks,  then called upon Mr. Cockelt for  a flute solo, afterwards calling  upon Mrs. G. Whitaker for a song  -"Whisper ahd I Shall Hear,"  rendering " No Sir," in response to  a hearty encore. ,  The chairman then called upon  Mr. G. Whitaker, the first speaker  for the affirmative, to open the  debate, who speedily engaged the  attention of the audience with his  convincing argument on behalf of  Reason. This was followed by a  well-written paper on Instinct,  prepaied by Mr. Gillespie, the first  speaker for the negative.  Mr. T. Morrison, the second  speaker for the affirmative, follow  ed Mr. Gillespie with a carefully  prepared dissertation which clearly  showed the superiority of reason  over instinct.  Mr. Leggatt, the second speaker  for the negative, made a gallant  attempt to break down the arguments of his opponents, but failed  to succeed in his efforts. Much  amusement was caused by his  remarks on hairdressing, especi  ally amongst the ladies, who were  noticed to be particularly interested in the various styles adopted  by the ladies present,  Whilst the judges were deliber  ating on their decision the chair  man called upon Miss Pineo, Mrs.  Whitaker and Messrs. Leggatt and  Whitakei for songs, the audience  showing their appreciation by encoring each one ; a pianoforte solo  by Miss Cottingham was also honored with an encore after which  the judges decision was announced  ���tha' they were unanimously in  favor of the affirmative. Excellenl  refreshments were then served by  the ladies of the district nn inform  al dance then being indulged ir,  until the early hours of the morning.  On Friday next, the 28th inst.,  Mr. Rogers, of the Kelowna high  school, will deliver an address t"  the society and on lhe 7th of  March, the society will visit tie  Benvoulin sociely, when the qinr-  tion "Resolved,thnt Home Training is Superior to School Training "  will be debated upon. An interesting discussion is expected nnd  a large gathering is expected to  be present.  On March 14th, the final meeting of the society will take place,  when a concert consisting of  Scotch and Irish music will be  rendered by the society's friends.  DA.
