 tfcloUma Kccor.)  VOL. IX.   NO. 12.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 8, 1917.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Will Give Me Time  te Patriotic Fund  Mr. J. R. Beale Appointed at'  Secretary - Treaaurer to      j  Relieve City Cleric  That ths work ol looking after the  collodion and distribution of theCan-  adien\ Patriotio Fund lor the district  was becoming too extensive and too  burdensome for the City Clerk in conjunction, with the duties of the city  office had been reoognuod for some  Bmall beginnings the duties of looal  time past by all concerned. From vary  secretary of the Fund have increased  bo that a large part of each day in  now taken up with one phase or an  other of its affairs. This lias b"t-n  seriously interfering with tho efficiencv  of the city office, and in spite of oon  tinunl overtime byl, the staff work was  falling behind.  As a reault of tho growing realization of this both by .he :ity council  and the Patriotio Fund committee, a  deputation consisting of ex-mnyor  W. Jonas, Dr. Gaddes, ,1. It. Beare, E.  M. Carruthers. ;and 0. B. Windsor,  representing the latter committee  waited on the oity co'in ill at Mondays  meeting.  Mr, J. W. Jones, who as chairman  of tho committee, noted as spokesman,  stated that they had come to explain  the difficulty in whioh they wore  placed and to ask the advioe and cooperation of the council. Tha am  mittee in charge of the local brunch ol  the Fund had been organized about u  year and a half ago, and huJ represented the variuuB chhrchos in tomn.  In the beginning the work of management had been small, and it had brcn  decided that the oity dark should act  as secretary-treasurer of the Fund.  With further enlistments, however, tbe  wotk had gradually piled up, uiuil  now there were over 60 tnmdies, with  240 to 370 dependents receiving pay  from the Fund. During tVa year and  a half the oommittee had r used $4,200  though requested to raise ,110.000 a  year. During the same period Ihoro  had been paid out some fourteen or  fifteen thousand dollars. The committee had bean aware that all this  had involved a great deal ol -vork on  the oity clerk, and though they wen  anxious to retain hia serviced, yet  they had not been surprised when they  had heard that the cou.mil folt tbae  his time should be reserved fur morn  important city duties. But lhe lerision  had placed the oommittee in a position of great difficulty.  From the lirst thoy did not seam to  have been able to enlist the hexixy  cooperation of the business man , of  the oity as in other places. Their  meetings were not well -tHo-.i led, *o  that the work and collection bid fall-  on, upon two or three individuals, and  even these were being further rultiioj  by absence from the oity, until praoti-  tically tho whole work seemed likely to  fall upon Mr. Beale.  If the oounoil had deoided, continued  Mr. Jones, that the oity olork mu.it  give his timo to oity affairs, ths 'om-  mittee would havo to look for anothor  man to aot as seoretary-tr.suiurMr. It  had been deoned advisable that a paid  secretary should be employed, vho  would devote the wh.no of his lime  to the work, and endeavor to stimu  lus great interest. The object of  the deputation was to asesrlaln to  what extent, the oity could help. The  matter waa a very important one 'or  the city, for il the commit.* "aa nat  in existenos, the oounoi) would have to  take ohnrgo. Many municipalities, he  pointed out, levied a lifc'sl tsX for  Patriotio Fund purposes, while in som0  oases debentures had been issued to  raise the money. The committee had  thought it well perhaps, if the Kolowna counoil would consider levying a  tax to supplement tho voluntary subscriptions to the Fund. However, Mr.  Jones concluded, it was possible Ire  council had some scheme to su,;gea>,  and ho hud 'endeavored to put l-.e  facta before them  Mr. J. II. Beale, being asked lor a.i  expression of his views on the n,alter,  said he did not'wish ,o a,id rrytnir.g  to what Mr. Jones hoi tviJ oxiept to  remind them ol the remarks of Sir  Herbert Ames, the general secretary ol  the Fund for Canada, ^during his visit  hero, that if Kelowna did not make it  hotter attempt to grapple with tha  situation, it might be necessary to reduce tho amount of the allowances In  soldiers' wives and dependents. The  collections in Kolowna had o far Ijoen  very disappointing, and the wot* ha I  fallen upon very few ohonl Icrs. lie  must say, however, that 1 hr. prrliik-nt  and treasurer had given a great d-al  of tjme to tho performance of their  duties, and had set a splendid example  to tho rest.  Mayor Sutherland, replying to thc  doletgntion, Mated that the council.had  met in committee on Friday last to  consider the mutter. They had fully  realized that something must be lone,  and had decided that the best plan  was to appoint someone to ��*ive Iris  whole time to the correction of Mib-  ncriptiniis und the general working of  the Fund. Assuming that the city  represented half of tho district, and  that half of the subscriptions here  coming from the oity, it seemed n fair  arrangement that the city should ray  half of the expenses of maintaining a  paid secretary.  After some discussion thiB plan wis  | linally accepted as probably offering  the beet solution of the difficulty, end  tho delegation withdrew with tno understanding that they would hold a  meeting immediately, and after ooiifri t  ering the proposal, communicate heir  decision to the council oefore the end  of thu lat'ter's session.  About an hour later Mr.Jones again  appeared beforo the oounoil', una rial-  ed that the committee, with no many  of Ub members as could be got together, had held a conference, and had  decided to aooept the council's offer.  They had also induced Mr. J. It.  lioaJo to accept the position at a salary of 880 per month. Of this the  counoil, according to its promise,  would pay 140. As some fear had  beon expressed as to the offset upon  public sentiment if the balance of the  Balary had to be taken from the subscriptions, it had been decided to endeavor to raise the amount by separate subscriptions from a few of the  citizens.  Considerable satisfaction was expressed at the selection of Mr Ileal.) 'or  the work to whioh he had already do-  voted a groat deal of enthusiastic  effort, and as ' he must In tho time  beings be regarded as a city nil', i;:l,  a formal resolution was out through  confirming the appointment, and  authorizing the payment of the city's  share of (40 per month.

It ia apparent that war is anticipated hy Germany, for the enginea ol  every German and AuBtrinn ship imprisoned in Now York harbor by the  British navy have been deliberately  wrecked.

It waa also deoided to add a note  requesting the publio to refrain from  using the telephone for a short period  following the turning in of an alarm,  except in urgent cases.  The Fire Brigade also made a recommendation whioh had for ita object  the prevention of the turning in of  false alarms," and also the calling  out of the Brigade to trivial chiromy  fires. They asked that the oounoil  make it a puniahable offense to turn  in a false alarm.  ThiB proposal, however, did not nice  with muoh favor with the oounoil. It  was conteaded that such notion might  make people afraid to tura In an  alarm, with tho result that time would  be wasted, and a small fire possibly  suffered to get a good hold, and muoh  damage dono before the Brigade wore  summoned.  AM. Bunk himself declared thnt be  was not in sympathy with ths proposal. The system of fire oalls here was  through a publio telephone office, and  it should be easy to trace any false  alarms. He thought il the public were  advised to use a little more care to  investigate before turning in an alarm  and to be sum they had good cause,  it would be sufficient.  Mayor Sutherland suggested ihat it  would be well to oonsidor a by-law  compelling people to keep their chimneys olean. '  As a result of the rUmders which had  been oalled for a policy of Insurance  oovering the members of the Brigade  a letter was read from the latter ro-  oommending that the tender of Mr. G.  A. Fisher be accepted, and a resolution  was passed to that effect.

This Year  What will be no doubt welcome news  tho tax-puyers of the itity was contained in a recommendation from tbe  Finanoe oommittee of the council . on  Monday that a further reduction of If)  per oent. be made from the city assess,  ment during the present year  Aid. Rattcnbury stated lhat, ths  committee believed that by economy,  and caro this reduction .ould be mails'  without having to increase tne rite.  He also dreww attcati.ni to a recent  amendment to tho Aot which provided  that where 10 per cent, reduction had  been made in the assessment of anv  property, no appeal oould lie mat.,  against such assessment until one year  after the war.  The agitation for a moro Attractivo-  rebate for prompt payment of taxes,  which tho council has been making for  some years past, was ogain mentbnid  by Mayor Sutherland, and it was up n  his suggestion, and in view of tire' approaching session of '.he le.fis'.Uuve,  that the followiug resol-itid:i vena  passed, and arrangements mads for  bringing it before the attention of the  government: "Whereas tne tenr.to on  taxes as provided for in Sec. 34 of  Chop. 46 of tho 1915 Statutes of Prit-  ish Columbia, ia insuilieient rind no.,  inducement,for the prompt ia1 tnontVof.  taxes; therefore tho Municipal ( nuncl*  of the City of Keliwna rocoii'irinds.  tho Provincial'Government to intro .  duoo and pass an amendme.it lhat will  givo power to muuicip .liiuie to allow  a large rebate for prompt pnyuent ivl  taxeB on the full tax lev>."     ,  Tho present arrangement, Mayor  Sutherland said, allowed a rebate to  be given only on the genoral tax. Thus  Inst year only 3.8 mills of the taxes  were subject to a rebate, and this vtur  it would pcohebly ba leas. The acturvl  advantage to be gained by payirij  taxes promptly was therefore very  small.  Amongst the corr-c.i-i.ndence was a  claim' for five dollars plumber's j8>'  penses on behalf of the owner ot it  houae, and who, it appeared, had a  real grievance against the city. *Xr.e  houso in question, after . '.-eirijt oni1 ty  for somo time had been rented, nnd r-n  application made :or the turvrg on of  the water, for which the necessary feo  was paid. The oity hreinan nent to  the place and proceeded lu turn on :lie-  water at tho stop tap. But the water,  would not come and naturally t.. rivd-  ing that the pipes inside the house  were frozen, he advised 'he nerv'ncs of  a plumber. But in spile of strenuous  efforts the plumbor was equally unsuccessful in inducing the water io  flow. It was then discovered that, a  former employee of the city had lurn--  ��1 off the water furth * back at the  main.   Thc claim was  illo,v,��i. ,  Letters were read from Messrs, t.'ie-  han, Martin, * Co., and from Mr. C,  H. Jackaon, in reply to tho call lor  tenders for the city auditing, and were  turned over to the commi.tee for fur  ther consideration.  A letter from a farmer i#.lrj��ai near  Letbbridge, who wished to rent n  dairy farm in the Kelowna distriot.  and to bring with him a snuOl herd  of pure-fbred Holsteins, was turned over  to the Board of Train, .ith the ro  commendation lhat tho diffnient real  estate firms, in the city ha'c access lo  it.  The uaunl list of acJjunts was sui,  mitted by the Finance .ommittee a'.id  passed for payment.

Messrs. Williams, Crawford'  Copeland and Morrison, of Kelowna, were visitors to Westbank  last week, being guests at the  Lakeview.  Mr. T. McAlpine, the newly-appointed road superintendent was  in the diatrict thiB week looking  over the wharfs with a view to  putting them in repair. Hia greatest difficulty seems to be in getting  an engineer to operate the pile-  driver. It is said the C.P.R, has  consented to loan him a man for  a time.  Mrs. Hewlett, who has three  boys overseas, reports having  heard from them all thia week.  William hu sent his watch and  other valuables home for safe  keeping, While Stewart who has  been in the trenches eighteen  months, has had a well-earned  leave of absence from duty, and  went over to England to spend it.  After visiting several relatives he  went to Bramshott to see George  his brother. It must be real joy for  brothers to meet after being so  long under fire -non sibi sed patriae  Ameetinst was held in the school  Friday afternoon under the banner  of the United Farmers of B.C., this  being the firat to be held Two  gentlemen were over from Kelowna to give some idea as to what  ita aims were. Mr, R. A. Copeland, chairman of the Okanagan  Diatrict Union, was the first speaker. After referring briefly to the  objects of the Association, which  he aaid would be more fully dealt  with by the next speaker, Mr. Morrison, he went on to say they had  only been organized in Kelowna  one vear, but they already had  ���even locals and had d.erived great  benefit. They met together as  often as possible, sometimes once  a week, to discuss their local problems.  One of their difficulties had been  labor,.but they had framed a scale  of wagea which the members had  agreed to, with the result that a  laborer could not leave one man  and just go over the fence and get  more money and so become dissatisfied with things in general  besides causing illfeeling among  neighbours. Now they lived on  better terms one with the other ;  the laborer was satisfied and tliey  had better results all round. In  1916 they took up the question of  buying seeds collectively. They  sent to various seed houses for  prices in bulk. The merchants of  Kelowna hearing of this fact asked  them not to buy until they quoted  them prices.and they finally bought  from the Kelowna merchants at n  rduction of aoout 23 per cent.  One of the objects of forming  this Association was to connect up  with the prairie provinces. They  were all organized except B.C,  ,ind after paying a splendid rribute  to that li ,111 leader of men, Mr.  Edward Partridge, of St.Eliita, told  of the difficulties they had down  east, and how they had overcome  many of them such as lowering  of freight, getting provincial owned  ���levators, and one great benefit  tliey had derived this last season  was thaf. the farmers of the provinces had saved themselves an  enormous sum on binder twine  alone. Organize, friends, and get  what you want I  Mr. Morrison said he had been  in the valley twenty-one years, but  bad never been to Weslbank before. He had rro idea of what the  (ilace was like, as it could not be  seen from the lake, but he was tie-  lighted with the location and surroundings now he had s en it. Me  went on to stale the objects of lhe  Association, viz., tu study and  leach the principles of co-operation ; to promote social intercourse  and a higher standard of community life ; to further the interest of  farmers in all branches; to settle  disputes between members without  recourse to law ; to defend members as far as it was possible and  just. He had examined the various  Associations that existed in B.C.  and found that none of them were  broad enough in their ideas.  Co-operation was the thing of  the future and without it they  would be left out in the cold, there-  l fore they should connect up with  | the provinces east of them who  I had done auch a great amount of  good for themselves in the way of  buying and the selling of their  products. They were all organized and reaping untold benefits  as could be gathered from the remarks of Mr. Copeland who told  of the time when wheat Was 25c  per bushel. One thing, he said,  might be the outcome of co-operation, which, of course, is only a  local matter, and that was the free  ferry. It would be biought up at  their locals the members of which  would do all in their power to assist them in getting it.  He then asked the meeting to  pass a resolution to the effect that  they would organize themselves  into a local of the United Farmers  of B.C. This being carried a vote  of thanks was tendered to the  visitors which brought a very enjoyable meeting to a close.  The board of arbitration which  sat for twenty-two days to decide  the value of the Kitsilano Indian  Reserve has decided that the Vancouver harbor commissioners must  pay the Dominion Government  $666,200 for the seventy acres. Il  is understood that the arbitrators'  costs are $7,500. The property  was originally purchased from the  Indians by the provincial government for $300,000.

A great many scouts did  not attempt to pass llieir Second  Class tests untill lhe lasl few days of  January, and consequently the  Scout Masters did not have time  to examine everyone, and several  of those they did examine did not  obtain the necessary percentage to  pass. 1 he Court of Honour will  probably decide however to give  all those who made a bona fide attempt to parts their tests, a further  extenlion. Those who did not  report at all cease to be members  of the Troop, with the opportunity  of applying to be re-taken on the  strength within the next six months,  bul if thev wish to nttend this year's  Troop camp they must apply to  he retaken on the strength during  this month. We are extending tbe  time1 for passing the "Mile at scouts  pace "and the"cooking test". Below is a list of those who have passed all the other tests:- Troop Leader A DuMoulin. Patrol leaders-  Thomas Snashall, Dick Parkinson,  Godfrey Groves, H. Crowley and  J. Calder. Seconds - L. Gaddes,  B. Davis, L. DuMoulin, p. Gaddes,  and L. Day. Scouts - T. Taylor, R.  Dykes. R.

DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE, OTTAWA,  OCTOBER 7th, 1916. /  I ROYALS  YEAST  MAKES PERFECT BREAD  31  Combination Aeroplane  and Yacht  One very valuablo rosult ol the groat  stimulus (riven to aeroplane construction has boon a very praetioal combination of the aeroplane nnd fast  cruising plonaure yaobt.  Mr. Curliss has built a large oora-  binntion Hying yacht huving a boat  body about fifty foot long with a cabin top over tlie cockpit to keep ths  pnnsengera dry In rough waul her. It  haa a wing spread of 76 feet, and is  capable ol starting from or alighting  n cither rough or smooth water. The  rqulpmagt of this nir yaoht, aside  from the self-atrirtor, muffler, electric  lights, search light, regulation lights  for night flying, anchor, and other  yacht equipment, includes the Sperry  iiutomrttio pilot which controls the  air cruiser in flight���doing automatically the greater part of ths work of  the pilot?  In the boat body very comfortable  and roomy accommodation I* provided  lor five people, very mush as in the  most luxurious touring oara.  With    a full liont and eleven people  n board it is capable ol 60 miles per  hour, nnd hus a cruising radius of 300  miles. With a load of live people its  'raising radiui is 500 milei. Such a  ,-esscl, of course, can always take tho  shortest route either by air or watsr,  and travel at a very high speed.  There seema to be a great future lor  this new type of conveyanca.  A British steamer whioh left Halifas  for Liverpool with 18,000 barrels of  Xova Scotia apples is reported sunk.

Four Penticton followers of the  Roarin' Game," Messrs. Chambers, Finch, Clark and Keys, came  np to Kelowna last Thursday and  met successively two rinks of Kelowna players. W. Harvey's rink,  in which were H. Lee, C. A. McKay and J. W. Currie. met the visitors in the morning and were  beaten by 13 to 6. In the afternoon Jim Harvey's (skip), W. R.  Trench, L. Haye3and H.Johnston,  were more successful and put it  over the down-the-lake boys by I I  to 6. In the evening the visitors  were entertained at the Lakeview.  On Monday morning the two Kelowna rinks, with the exception of  J. W. Currie, whose place was taken by W. D. Morgan, went up to  Vernon to take part in the five  days bonspeil which is in progress  there this week.  \  Mr. W. E. Adams left Saturday  for Vancouver in consequence of  a decision to move the books and  records of the Central Okanagan  Lands, Ltd., and the Kelowna Irrigation Co., to the office of the receiver, W. M. Maclachlan, of Vancouver. Mr. Adams will still continue in charge of the company's  affairs, and will therefore reside in  Vancouver, Mrs. Adams and the  children joining him at that point.  During his ten years' residence in  Kelowna, Mr. Adams has made a  large circle of friends who will  regret the necessity of his departure. He has been active in public  work of various kinds, having served on the city council, the Board  of Trade, and other organizations.  He has also taken a foremost part  in the work of the Methodist  church, and by the /oung people  especially he will be much missed.  Phone  66  W. HAUG  /  P.O.

The. fire started in the basement at  about 10 o'clock in the morning  when all the children were busy  with their studies.

Several hundred dollars worth of  books belonging to the school  were destroyed, and only part of  the school records were saved.  i Penticton is anxious to arrange  for a Basket Ball Match between  their team and Kelowna. This is a  game which should take on very  well in Kelowna, particularly in the  winter when we have so little  hockey and what we do have ia  so uncertain.
