 \Vfcw��OwiO  lietvvb  Sl^^  jtowOvf*)  VOL. X.   NO. 37  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, ^HURSpAY. AUGUST I, I9I8.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Par Annum  Flower and Vegetable  Show Saturday  Large Number of Entries in  Various Classes Expected  Given a fine day the aquatic  pavilion should be > busy place  Saturday afternoon, when lhe Women's Institute hold their annual  flower show. The original data  fixed was Monday, the 5th, but it  has been found advisable to  change this to the Saturday preceding.  This ii the third year in succession that the Institute has held this  interesting show, which promises  to becoms one of the chief local  events of the year. It is certain  that already it has given a considerable impetus to the culture of  flowers in the city, for never in the  history of Kelowna were there ao  many beautiful gardens as at the  present time. Last year the entries  were fully fifty per cent, greater  than the preceding year, and thia  year the increase may be in even  greater proportion, especially as  the scope of the show has been  enlarged to include vegetables.  Many people have engaged in gardening this year who never thought  of it before, and these war gardeners are justly proud of the products of their batik yards. They  will find that to enter some of theae  things in the show in competition  with their neighbours will give  them a wonderful inaight into the  art of gardening.  During the week Messrs. Palmer  L. E. Taylor, and Lawes have been  busy judging the gardens, nearly  twenty in number, which were  entered in the contest instituted by  Mr. Geo. Chick. The results of  this will be made known Saturday.  The ladies, of course will serve  light refreshments during the  afternoon.  All entries are to be in place by  10.30 in the morning, the executive  committee being in attendance  during' the' morning to receive  them, and judging will commence  immediately after. The show will  be thrown open to the public st  3 o'clock.  Rutland News  tVtem am owe eorrsBnoadsatl.  There is to be a meeting Monday evening at 8 o'clock in the  schoolhouse, of the Rutland Uuited  Farmers, at which all water users  are urged to be present, as important business concerning them is  to be discussed.  Acting on instructions received  from the secretary of state, late  Friday night, the police raided the  office of The Week newspaper  at Victoria, Saturday, and put into  execution orders of the Ottawa  authorities to suppress the publication. In the message from Ottawa  no reason is given for this action  and it is merely stated from now  on under psin of a fine of $5000,  the paper shall not be circulated or  be in the poseaaion of any peraon.  Development in the mine to the  northeast of Penticton is now  going along and last week a carload of ore was shipped to the  smelter at Greenwood. The ore is  rich in gold and silver values and  is expected to net a fair price. The  old company apparently stopped  work when they ran across what  seemed to them to be the end of  the vein, but the new promoters  have picked up a new lead which  runs in a V-shape from the old one,  and if this developes a sufficient  qusntity of ore the mine will be a  paying proposition.  Irrigation Convention  Held at Nelson  Many Representatives of the  Okanagan Water Users  The twelfth annual convention  of the Western Canada Irrigation  Association was held last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in Nelaon  and waa attended by upwarda of  250 delegates and visitors from all  parts of lhe west. Delegates from  the Okanagan included Messrs. J.  W.Jones, M.P.P., Grote Stirling.  G. Heggie, F, C. R. Wollaston, E.  B. Knight, J. A. McKelvie, W.  Ritchie, E. R. Simpson, R.Johnson,  R. Helmer, J. Kidston, Dodwell,  Latimei and Chambers.,  The delegatea were warmly welcomed by Mayor McQuarrie of  Nelson, and other local men, and  though rain interfered somewhat  with outdoor arrangements, everything waa done to make the visit  enjoyable to all concerned.  The president of the Association  the Hon. T. D. Pattullo, presided  at the opening session, and spoke  of some of the difficulties of irrigation in Britiah Columbia. He said  the aituation had now reached a  point where the government waa  required to take atrong action. Hia  remarka concerning water legialat-  lation, however, were not very  encouraging. There waa not a  man, in hia belief, who underatood  the Water Act. Few lawyera underatood it, and it waa only the men  of the water righta branch who were  in touch with it all the time who  could explain it. It ahould be  simplified ao aa to be comprehensible by the ordinary layman. He  dealt alao with aome of the problems of land settlement, and the  rehabilitation of returned aoldiera.  Other important addreaaea on  the first day were by Don. H. Bark  chief of the Irrigation Investigation  Division of the C.P.R., J. W. E.  Biker of Nelaon, Prof. Eastham of  Vernon, and A, I,. McCulloch of  Nelson.  ~On'the second day, M. S. Middle-  ton of the B. C. Agricultural department, con,pared the cost of different methods of irrigation, the Hon.  W. R. Motherwell of Saskatchewan  gave an instructive talk on dry  farming emphasizing the need for  greater grain production owing to  the war, and Prof. C. E. Parham,  of the Invermere Experimental  Farm told of the importance of  lfalfa to orchard growers.  On Thursday the Hon. John  Oliver, premier of British Columbia,  made an appeal for the intelligent  cooperation of agriculturists for increased production, not the reckless throwing into seed of unprepared lands, but concentrated  effort to bring about quality production as well as quantity production. Jas. White, assiatant to  the chairman, Commission of Conservation, spoke on the water  powers of British Columbia. A.  Griffin, of the C. P. R. irrigation  department, gave a valuable address on district ownership of irrigation works, with reference to its  practical operation in California.  W. H. Treherne, of Vernon, spoke  of the control of insect pests in the  Okanagan.  Friday's speakers were the Hon.  Duncan Marshall, minister of agriculture for Alberta, R. H. Campbell, director of forestry at Ottawa,  E. F. Drake, federal superintendent  of irrigation, F. E. R. Wollaston, of  Vernon ("Irrigation in the Okanagan"), J. J. Currie, staff engineer of  the military hospital at Balfour, B.  C, and others.  Several important resolutions  were passed dealing with irrigation  matters, and not the least interesting features of the meeting were  the diacueaiona which followed  many of the addreaaea.  The gueata were entertained at a  moat aucceaaful flower ahow and  concert, while automobile and  launch tripa were made to aeveral  points of intereat around Nelaon  The next place of meeting will  be Medicine Hat.  Plans of the United States for  participation in the expedition to  give military aid to Russia are ex.  pected to be announced in a pub-  lie statement by President Wilson  very soon.

Will Extend Local Field  of Manual Training  Mr. John Kyle, director of technical education in the province,  haa been in town during the paat  few daya engaged in the reorganization of n anual training work in  the diatrict. The aucceaa which  has attended the local classes has  prompted the educational authorities to extend their scope, and  arrangements are being discussed  to include some of the country  schools.  Hitherto, Mr. Mitchell, the instructor, has been spending three  days in Kelowna and then journeying to Penticton for the remainder  of the week. This will now be discontinued so far as Penticton is  concerned, a plan having been  made for the latter place to work  in conjunction with Summerland.  Rutland, Benvoulin and Mission  Creek have all been .mentioned as  likely to join in the plan with Kelowna, but so far nothing definite  has been decided.  No change ia contemplated in  the domestic acience clasaea.  BIRTHS  KNOX-On Thursday, Aug. I, to  the wife of Dr. W. J. Knox, a son.  SPALL-On Tuesday, July 30, to  the wife of J.

Some are  actually begging and ahow no respect to officers, not saluting them  and even shoving them off the  pavement. The order saya if thia  continuea the commander will forbid the aoldiera to use the streets.  Results of B.C.  Entrance Exams.  The results of lhe High School  Entrance examinations were made  public laat weekend. Owing to  the fact that in KeLwna the recently authorized and more aane and  aenaible principle of granting entrance upon the reaulla of the past  year's work, was adopted by Piin  cipal Gordon, only four candidates  presented themselves for examin  ation, of whom three passed with  a very creditable showing of marks.

A total of 1620 public school  pupila in addition have been granted high achool entrance stand.ng  on the recommendation ol the  principals of cities of first and  second class.

South Vancouver passed 191 out of 212, considered to be a remarkable showing.  A Penticton girl, May Macdonald of the Ellis public school, loads  the pupils of the province in the  high school entrance examinations  held in June. Out of a possible  1100, her marks were 887.  Winners  of the bronze medals  given by the governor-general for  Five in Family Have  Seen Service Overseas  Pte. C. Adams Lost Leg From  High-Explosive Shell  Minus s leg, and suffering from  lhe effects of several other wounds  Pte. C. D. Adams, another mem  ber of a Kelowna family which  has given five of its members to  the aervir.e of the empire, returned  laat Wedneaday afternoon. Pte.  Adama went over with the 172nd,  but like aeveral |of that company,  waa tranaferred to the 47ih when  he went over to the front line. He  was in aome of the famous battlea  at Lena, Vimy Ridge and other  places, but the wound which put  him out of action waa received  later while aerving back Jof the  line in the tranaport aeryice. He  waa wilh a party hauling up sand  bags when enemy shells began to  come over, evidentl) searching for  ammunition dumps. Twice the  high exploaive ahell fell short, but  the third reached him. But for the  fact that it firat carte through the  wall of a house which afforded  aome protection, he could not  possibly have escaped alive. Aa  it wa;, he waa badly shattered, portions of the shell striking him in  three or four places, the worst injury being to his leg which had to  be amputated about three inches  above the knee. It was three  weeks before he was able to be  moved to England.  He came over to Canada on the  ill-fated Llandovery Castle which  was sunk on its return journey a  few weeks ago. He ia here now  on special leave from the military  hospital at Whitby, Ont., where he  must return in a short time,! leave  being granted owing to the illness  of hia mother.  He has two brothers still over-  sens. One of them, Alf, is in  France, while Jack is in Scotland  with a'forestry corps. Harry returned about for months ago, hia  leg badly injured by a shell. Hia  father ia alao back after a conaiderable lime in England and France,  where he contracted aathma and  bronchitie.  A telegram has been received  this afternoon to the effect that  Corp. Alf Adams haa been admitted into hoapital suffering from a  gunshot wound in the leg. .  Changes in Tariff  for Carload Shipments  Minimum Loads Based on the  Cubical Contents of Cara  Some importsnt changes ol interest to fruits shippers have just been  announced in tba railway tariff  relating to carload shipments of  fruit and vegetables. It will be  remembered that early in the year  in conference with chief officials of  the CP.R, and' particularly with  the traffic manager, Mr. W. B.  Lanigan, a schedule of minimum  carloads for fruit and vegetables  waa agreed upon, the minimum*  fixed being in most cases very  considerable increases upon the  old schednle with a view to conserving car space, and making  fuller use of available .equipment.  This schedule was based upon  minimum weights of the various  kinds'of produce, a plan which  has not been found to ��� work to  entire satisfaction owing to the  variation in the size, of cars used  for fruit hauling. In the smaller  cars the minimum weight would  often be too much for the capacity  of the car, while the larger cars  could be loaded still heavier without inconvenience.  In a telegram received yesterday  by Dominion Fruit Inspector Loveday, the revised tariff is given; the  basis for minimum loads being the  cubical contents of the car.  The following figures are given:  Fresh Fruit, 60 per cent, of cubical, capacity of car.  Fruit and Vegetables (mixed cara),  66 and two-thirds per cent.  Apples 0��ne   1st  to Sept.  30th),  75 per cent.  Apples (Oct. 1st to  May 31st, 90  per cent.)  Vegetables (early, June 1st to Oct.  15th), 66 and two-thirds. '  Vegetablea (Oct, 16th to May 31st)  80 per cent..  These figures are not to apply  to refrigerator cars of less than  1,500 cubic feet capacity.  Postal Strike Continues  In spite of the report that the post  office strike had been called off,  the trouble still continues in Vancouver and several other points,  due to the government's refusal to  appoint a conciliation board to  adjust the difference with the letter  carriers, and the greatest inconvenience is being fell .through the tie-  up of the mail service. Millions of  letters have accumulrted, and the  situation is growing more serious  every day. Boards of Trade and  public bodies generally appear to  sympathize with the strikers, and  are bringing pressure to bear upon  the government. It now seems  likely that a royal commission will  be appointed to deal with the.j  problem.  the pupil receiving higheat marks  in each diatrict:  Diatrict l-Marjorie P. Locke,  Div.

Opposing counael were  agreeable to let it be understood  that their opposition to recognizing  the Guild, while recognizing deckers'unions and so forth was because of the nature of the employment, the master of a vessel having  confidential relations with the  owners, and also the difference in  rank, the ateamahip companies  arguing that for masters and mates  to belong to the same organization  would be bad for discipline.  Mr. and Mrs. J. Ball and Ralph  returned yesterday from Calgary.  Mrs. A D. Monsees was a passenger to Vancouver Mondav.  Miss E. F. Edwards left Monday  on a visit to the coast.  Mr. J. L. Wilson went to Vancouver Monday.  E. L. Cross is away this week on  a business trip to the coast.  Mr. and Mrs. W: J. Clement left  Tuesday for Edmonton,  Mra.

This is certainly s  matter which demanda immediate  attention in the intereats of the  whole community. It ia one of  the peculiarities of a fruit glowing  district that each individual ia to a  large extent at the mercy of hia  neighbors, and that his utmost care  and vigilance in combatting diseases and pests can be made of no  avail if his neighbor does not follow  suit. There are many instances of  growers who aie apending hundreds of dollars each year in spraying to destroy pests and working  to fight disease in their trees who  are cursed with a neighbor who  will do neither, and who regularly  each year undoea the work of a  large area surrounding him. In  some cases the mischief is cauaed  by'absentee ownera, whoae orchards, through neglect, have simply  become nurseries of all the ill that  treeslare heirs to.  A reluctance to atir up atrife  amongst neighbors which every  decent man feels, ia the teaaon for  so little action being taken. Moreover il is work for an expert; and  the only remedy seems to be  rigorous periodical inspection by  a proper official, and strict enforcement of the law. If the law ia not  strong enough or definite enough  to deal with the trouble, it needs  amending.  o  New Freight Rates] on  August 1st  New schedules of rates for all  Canadian railways will go into.  effect on August I. Railways are  now preparing their new rate schedules and representatives ot the  roads are in conference with members of the government. The new  rates will be put in force by order-  in-council under the War Measures  Act, and there will be no hearing  of applications before the Railway  Commission as in normal conditions has been necessary. Increases will not be as high as 25  per cent, as had at first been anticipated nor will thev apply uniformly to all commodities, neither  will thev apply to passenger rates.

Thia mill ia for  the purpoae of supplying the farmers of the three prsirie provinces  with lumber below prices now  prevalent and on the co-operative  plan.  C Rice Jones, firat vice-president of the United Grain Growers,  states that the mill has been long  desired by the faimers. They are  in need of adequate and cheap  lumber at present. The plant com  prises saw mills, planing mills, lath  mills, machine mills and drying  kilna, and ia one of the moat up-  to-date industries in the lumbering  world.  Situated in the Rocky Mountains  on a 26 mile timber limit owned  by the United Farmers, the mill  will be fed by means of a light  railroad running straight from the  bush to the aaws. A large dam  was built, providing a wide mill-  pool to receive the lumber. After  drying the lumber will be shipped  to the western provinces over the  Grand Trunk Pacific railway, the  main line of which passes through  the limit.  This land was first located by  John Kennedy, now second vice-  president of the company. He  was accompanied by W. A. Willi-  tis, who now has charge of the  whole milling and logging operations. The site was located seven  years ago when no town was cloaer  than 300 milea. Part of the journey  had to be made in a canoe on the  the Fraaer river. The future  advantage ot the land waa realized by the Grain Growera, and a  lease was secured. Now that the  railway is through and the factories  complete, Manitoba farmers as we  as thoae of Saakatchewan and Alberta are aupposed to reap the  benefit of the early prospecting by  the farm company's officials.  Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Gagnon, of  Megantic, Que., are the happy par  ents of their twentieth child.   The  Gagnons have been married twenty  one yeara.

Dear Sir,���Will you kindly grant  me space in your valuable paper  to call attention to a serious condition which is in our midst in regard to fruit growing in this district.  I refer to the menace of fire blight  which is prevalent to an alarming  extent as can be seen in many orchards while driving along lhe  road.  In the first place I am beginning  to wonder if we have a fruit pesls  inspector or not. If we have, according to my idea of the dutiea  of auch aa officer, he ia very lax in  carrying out hia dutita or we would  not be confronted with auch an  alarming amount of fire blight as  there ia. My idea of the dutiea of  our inapector ia that he ahould  viait orchards periodically, and if  anything serioua ia found, to acquaint the owner of the fact and  tell him the remedy, and try to  perauade him to apply that remedy and if unable to do ao, aome  other meana ahould be uaed.  Mow, if I am wrong about the  dutiea of an inapector, I withdraw  thia statement and humbly apologise. If I am not wrong then 1  emphaaize it very atrongly.  I alao have a word to aay in regard lo ownera of orchards. Surely  moat of them know the serioua  nature of fire blight, and I am aur-  priaed that they do not aee that all  affected parts are cut out for their  own aake to aay nothing of infecting their neighbora. It ia rather  diacouraging for one who ia trying  to produce fruit and to take- care  of an orchard aa it ahould be, lo  aee fire blight eveiywhere and  ready to invade hia orchard next  apting and cause endless labor lo  subdue it all over again.  Fire blight is one of the most  deadly things we have to contend  wilh, yet it is thit simplest to con  trol if taken in time and persistently cu! out, but eternal vigilance is  the price of keeping it down.  Some of us have been hardly  hit by frost destroying our fruit,  then we were confronted with  shortage of water, and' now we  are threatened with thia menace,  worat of all, which will put ua out  of buaineaa if we are not careful.  The first of theae three conditions was entirely beyond our control, the second was also as far as  this season is concerned at least,  but the last is entirely in our own  hands to control if we will.  It is not ver) pleasant to have to  explain to visitors when asked  what is the matter with our orchards to have to explain lhat we  are losing them through sheer  neglect. I feel like saving much  more but perhaps this ia enough  to start aomebody thinking.  Thanking you, air, for thia apace,  I am, youra reapectfully,  t A FRUIT GROWER.  Edited by Pioneer.

We also wish to have the  time taken of every scout who proposes to go in for any of the swimming events. We have a relay race  of our own and we also wish to  put in a team in the open relay.  The privilege of repreaenting the  troop will be given to the 4 acouta  who can make thebeat time. There  are aeveral membera of the troop  who do not yet hold the Swimmer's  Badge although we are quite aure  they could easily pass the required  test. Make arrangements at once  to try for this badge and also for  the Rescuer's, while the water in  the lake is warm. Every member  of the troop ahould hold both of  these badges. We again repeat  that the summer holidays are a  aplendid time for for paaaing teata.  Scout A. Clarence completed the  teala for hia aecond claaa badge at  camp, and Recruit W. Thomlinson  paaaed the teata for hia tenderfoot  badge on Wedneaday the 24th  inatant.  The shield presented to us by  the Aquatic Association ia awarded to th- patrol which has made  the most progress and has carried  on in the best manner from the end  of September in the one year to  the same time in the next year, so  that there is a little time yet for the  different patrols to raise their stand  ing.  a       a  a  We have just recently forwarded  to the Provincial Headquarters our  annual census returna, which are  given aa at the 30th of June. During the period from the 30th of June  laat year, 9 acouta left the Hoop,  one to attend the R.M.C., Kington,  2 to attend T.C.S., Port Hope, I  enlisted, 3 left Kelowna to work in  other towns, and 2 are still in Kelowna. All of these were second  claaa acoutr, 3 were Kings' acouta,  apd together they held 39 proficiency badgea, so that quite a loaa to  the troop took place in one year,  Thoae left however have been  carrying on well and with a total  strength of 28 we have one King'a  scout, 2 first-claaa acouta, 10 second-  class scouts and 18 scouts holding  65 proficiency badgea, which is the  aame number we held laat year.  e        a  a  We welcome a further acout  column in the Okanagan, namely  that now appearing in the Vernon  News which makes 4 scout columns  altogether in the valley.

Thev include cartage,  stationery, long distance telephone  calls, expreaa and freight on tenta,  hardware, groceriea, meat and the  cook's fee, food, and altogether  amount to $136.40. Against this,  at the rate of $2.30 a head for  camp fees and 25c. a meal for thoae  who viaited us for parts of a day,  we have $45.50 coming, all of  which haa been paid lo date wilh  the exception of $10,50, so that  this vear we shall only have to draw  on our troop funds for the camp to  the extent of $90.90 as compared  with $ 120 last year. We of courae  had a smaller camp this year with  a charge of 50c. more per head,  but then agrin nothing has gone  down in price and our thanks are  due to the quarthermaster for his  good work in this connection.

American troops are being transported across the Atlantic at the  rate of 300,000 a month, including  100,000 in American ships, Sir Leo  Money, Parliamentary secretary to  the shipping ministry, announced  in the House of Commons just  recently. Sir Leo pointed out  that while thia deprives the Allies  of some tonnage, the*shipping  organization is such that food and  war materials continue to be carried  in adequate quantities.  In accordance with the war policy of economic retrenchment,  recently decided on by the Alberta  government, provincial offices and  reading and vocation rooms at  Trafalgar Square, London, have  been handed over (or the duration  of the war to the authorities of the  Khaki University of Canada, the  importance of whose work is now  fully recognized by the Dominion  government.
