Mr. II. B. Kerr's review oi the question of the Question oi Asiatic iinmi^vu-  tion showed the pressure irom old und  thickly populated countries, lor access  to new and sparsely populated r?ent.  Th* population of the world leing  1,600 millions, Asia now holds mora  than halt, 860 millions, China having  400 millions, and India, which is much  smaller than Canada, 350 millions  Europe haB 400 millions, while: Canada  with about the,same .area, has only  7 millions. Sinoe 1835, when Fraud,'  visited Australia, and an increase ol  many millions in a century was prophesied, the population has risen from  three millions to only four milli-ns.  The tliiuly-populuted new countries ato  owned by Europeans; Spanish' and  Portuguese in South America, French  in the fine territory of the north ol  Afrioa, and British in many narts of  the world. Germany, however, him  not had the access to Africa thai; sho  wanted, and has complained that she  "has no place in the sun."

The  question ol intermarriage was a  difficulty, but it was mora imaginary  than real. Even intermarriage with a  really lower race, the negro, has not  been proved to produce poor heredity  The famous novelist, Alexandre Dumas  was a quarter negro, and his son was  also famous.

Mr. C. E. Weeks poin'.sd out the difficulties ol the (armor competing with  Asiatic labor, and feursd ho i>,..*oring  of the standard ot living, lie express  the hops that the cooperative, method  would help us.  Mr. K. Iwaahita, a wsll-knoern lixul  'Japanese merchant, being oalled upon  to speak, replied first to ihe i|uestii n  of intermarriage, .��viog that. these  have proved satisfactory, especially on  shown in about three hundred marriages between .lapaiaw men nnd  American women, and tha offspring  was Irobust. He claimed that, the Japanese do not send much money away;  only about $20 per capita annually is  remitted lo Japan, and probably the  Chinese send about the same to thiir  families. It was,'he said, because the  farmers discriminate against them  and that they knew not what would  oome next day, that they could .not  put their hard-aarned money into real  estate or furniture hens. It the antagonistic feeling was removed, Orientals  would make Igood citizens.

Owing to tho many demands made for funds from atber t��'g-  anizations, it had been deemed advisable to endeavor to make a stronger  effort to collect accounts, and in that  way to make tha Hospital pay l'l  own way instead .ot calling upja thu  public for funds.  The total number ot patients treated during the past year had been 150,  41 oi them tor operations, i:8 for medical treatment, and the balance of 41  in the maternity hospital. The total  number of days treatment was 2(1111,  1428 in the general hospital,and 515 in  the maternity branoh.  During tho year a refrigerator room  hod been built in, and storm window i  and doors had been added.  In closing his report the seorutary  thanked all who had ussisloi in any  manner during the past Yea?.

Willits, for the good work whioh he  had done, not only Inrst year, bul during all the time he had been on the  Hospital board, and regrets ware expressed that he should havo found it  necessary to drop the work tor the  present.  Thanks were also given to the various ladies' associations who had been  ol valuable assistance, to the retiring  directors and executive, and a'so to  the matron and hospital staff.

Three directors' and ono use. iutivfj  meeting had been held during the year,  and on'Deccmber 5th a special meeting had been held lor th* purpose of  forming a Distriot Institr.tj. That  meeting was addressed by the deputy  minister of agriculture, Mr. W. *T.  Scott, Mr. W. J. Gibson, Mr. G. H.  Hopkins, and others. Important resolutions, were passed and forwarded to  tha government and other Institutes in  the Valley on1 the following subjects:  Extension of sohool holidays, lrdjor  bureau, fruit packing,agricultural reading matter for schools, experiments in  onion growing, and the appointment  of an agricultural supervisor for the  schools ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^  Computations were held tor orohards  onions, and oorn, but the potato competition was withdrawn.  Last June the directors deoided to  rent the Board of Trade room for permanent quarters, and arrangements  were made to sublet the front office  to the Distriot Horticulturist. The  now arrangements had proved eminently satisfactory, the rents obtained by  hiring the room for other meetings  etc., having recouped the Institute for  the rent paid to the Board of Trade.  A library was maintained and a full  stack of bulletins was always on hand.  The Institute had been most fortunate in securing the services of Mr. R.  L. Dalglish as secretary, and it was  entirely due to his energies thit the  work of the Institute had been carried  on so successfully during the year. It  was ot the greatest advantage to tho  farmers to be able to consult tho secretary any afternoon they pleased   at  THE    MINISTER    OF    FINANCE  REQUESTS  THE   PEOPLE   OF   CANADA  BEGIN NOW ���  TO  TO SAVE MONEY FOR THE  NEXT WAR LOAN  Mt,M  that some scheme would have to ba  evolved in the near future.  The vegetable maraat had bean a  strong iealuro during tha year. Oniou  growers reaped a rich harvest, nnd  potatoes were above the averug* price.  The early frost in the iall caused considerable damage to the tomato crops,  and the cannery supply toll 'ar short  of requirements. Other trunk crops  proved more profitable than usual,  probably owing to th* Largely increased production.  Th* apple evaporator was able .to  handle a large bulk oi cull fruit, und  its value Sflould be more appreciated  by the grower* than it is. In his  opinion a good deal more fruit ahould  go to the evaporator than doss at  present, instead oi being shipped out  to other provinces. It i* Very detri-  |.jnental to any market to have a llood  oi low-grade product.  PROGRESS OF DAIRYING  Dairying had made rapid strides,  thanks to th* firm establishment of a  creamery during th* year. Th* 7-l,2i'l  lbs. bt butter were manufactured and  sold by th* creamery during ths year,  in addition to Ioe cream and cream.  The average pvia* paid to the fi.nnors  lor butter tat, a high price for normal  times, and one that will compare favorably with any other creamery in  Canada. A great deal, observed Mr.  Taylor, might be staid as to improved  methods whioh should be od ipted by  dairy farmers both in tbe oare oi thoir  stook and their a nam. Tha necessity  of providing succulent winter feed was  becoming more apparent every year,  and he waa pleated to note that seven  new silos had b*en iireoted during the  year, bringing th* total up to over  twenty, and with firospeota ol many  more being crooted during the out  twelve months. Thar* were still very  lew fanners who wenched their milk.  Without this it was imjpoaiibl* to tell  whioh oowi were profitable and whieh  war* boarders. Tba timts had fully arrived for aha establisho|rnt of a contesting association in thit District.  Th* hay orop was below the average  but prioes wore higher. A considerable amount of hay was shipped out  to th* coast. Thar* was a large falling oS of grain production partly owing to unfavorable weather oonrjitions.  More grain should ba grows in the  distriot, ospeoialjy barley for p'g tied.  Thia year waa moat unfavorable for  maturing oorn on bottom lands, bat  at least two good crops were matured  on lighter lands.  There was no doulit in his mind that  oorn oould toe oucoeiistully grown here  on a large seals at a good profit.  Thar* wa* ��� great demand for good  oorn seed in Camrin.

In competition  with many of the largest and oldest  established creameries in the province,  Kelowna Creamery carried off first  prize tor butter prints. The prise for  butter solids was only missed by the  loss of a few points on a question of  preparation of the exhibit.  The' Creamery company, and especially the manager, Mr. S. Thomas, are  to be congratulated on this very satisfactory result.  Tho convention itself was full of interest for all dairynn,nf and the fanners ot the district will no doubt look  forward with interest ta the special  convention which is to be held in  Kelowna in September, when the  competition will be repeated.  Mr. M. Hereron was eleotod a director of the Association tor th* coming  year. There wero also present fiom  Kelowna Messrs. P. B. Willits, W. G.  Benson, D. W. Sutherland, and J. L.  Pridham.  Amongst the resolutions passed by  the convention was one asking the gov  eminent to resume ehe system ilio  testing ot dairy herds ior tuberculosis  at the' earlieBt possible moment.           o  The publio school at Salmon arm  was destroyed by fire this week.

It oould not be too strongly impressed upon farmers lo use only the  beat seed. It was the utmost lolly  to purchase second grade reed  in order to make a saving oi a few  cent* or dollars per acre, which was  all it ever amounted to. It was aa  established tact that looally grown  seed, properly acclimatizfti, is infinitely superior to seed from other localities. It is also a mistaken idea io  suppose that teed na|-.irat constant  changing; this is not the caw il you  | select your seed every year.  Every endeavor was being made to  increase produotion to supply war requirements, and with tho prevalent  scarcity ot labor this could best be  done by sowing only the best seed,  properly cleaned and graded.  LIVESTOCK  Cattle were slowly increasing in  numbers and in quality by the use of  good sires, but prioes had not advanced at the same rate as lor other  farm products. Pigs had made a verr  targe increase, partly attributable to  the dairy business. Several rmrloa Is  of tat pigs were shipped to the Coast  at 9ic to 10Jo live weight.  There had been a firm demand to'  horses from outside buyers at moderate prioes, and there was every pios-  peet Ior a considerable rice in prioes  with a greater demand. Tha poultry  industry was making headway, especially a* regards the quality of the  I birds kept, but the supply of *gga  throughout tbe year was not equal lo  tbe demand.  LABOR SHORTAGE  Turning from his review of the  fanning industry during thc past year,  Mr, Taylor went on to consider tonic  of the difficulties ahead. There wn*  likely to be considerable shortage ol  labor, both tor ranoh work anl fruit  picking. This matter bad been dit-  oussed at many meetings, and he was  of the opinion that the most likely  solution would be the formation of a  labor bureau under government supervision.  The orohards ol the valley, he said,  had now arrived at such an age when  it became imperative to tako stringent  A)  St. Michael's Church  Annual Vestry Meeting  In Spite of Difficulties Financial  Conditions Were Encouraging  The annual vestry meeting of  tne pariah of St. Michael and-All  Angela' wa* held on Wednesday  evening, Januaiy 24th and wa*  presided over by the rector, Archdeacon Greene.  In his yearly report he reviewed  the work of the parish in ita various branches, specially commending the work of the choir, the junior and senior W.A., and the  Chancel Guild for their substantial aid given to the parish funds.  Particular mention was made of  the work of the juniors in defraying the expense of matting for the  centre aisle of the church. He  thanked the retiring wardens and  church committee for their valuable help in the executive work of  lhe pariah. Mr. Beale and Mr.  Whifiin were heartily commended,  the former for his earnest work in  the Sunday-school, the latter for  his woik in building the organ  which is giving increased satisfaction.  Mr. G. A. Fisher then read the  wardens' financial report. He said  lhat despite many difficulties the  current expenses had been met,  the Synod and M. S. C. C. assessments had been fully paid, and on  the whole conditions were very  encouraging.  The election of officers was then  proceeded with. Lay delegates,  Messrs. F. A. Taylor, P. DuMoulin  and L. E. Taylor. The rector regretted that Mr. Carruthers, owing  to increased duties and residence  about four miles out of town, was  obliged to decline the office of  Rector's Warden. He had, however, found an excellent successor  in Mr. J. R. Beale, and Mr. G A.  Fisher was unanimously elected  People's Warden, an onerous post  which he has filled with entire  satisfaction. The congregation is  fortunate in having one who is so  deeply interested in the work of  the church.  The following w.ere elected aa  nidesmrn : Messrs. R. E. Denison,  P. DuMoulin, L E. Taylor, A.  Whiffin, F. V. Royle, F. W. Groves,  A C. Poole. D. Lloyd-Jones, C.  Johnson ; Auditor, Mr. R. E. Denison.  Hearty votes of thanks were  passed to the retiring wardens and  church committee, to the honoraiy  auditor, Mr. Denison, Mr. Beale,  Mr. Whffin, the organist. Miss  Edgell, the choir, the junior and '  senior W.A., and Chancel Guild.  The rector then pronounced the  blessing thus bringing a very successful meeting to a close.  The Rutland United Farmera  nave arranged a "smoker" for  Monday next, February 5th, to be  held in the schoolhouse. A hearty  invitation is extended lo members  o ({kindred organizations thrrufhout  the district. Refreshments, tobacco and a good programme is being  provided free. The affair will  start at 8 p.m.  Mr. J. A. Bigger returned last  week-end from a visit to Winnipeg-  Bishop Du Pencier returns to  New Westminster, B.C., in- April.  He has been serving as chaplain  at the front.  The Hon. Ralph Smith, provincial minister of finance, recently  told a delegation that he was considering the question of placing a  tax on theatre tickets. It is possible that the government will levy  a tax which will be divided with  the municipalities in the districts  where the money is collected.  The Dresden arsenal has been  blown up and one thousand women and young girls killed, according to a letter taken from a German soldier dated Decembes 30.  The letter was written from Dresden, and the writer said that all the  windows within a radius of twelve  miles were broken by the explosion.  He added that the authorities were  keeping the news secret, and that  no railroad tickets were being issued for Dresden except for urgent  reasons.

Wilson Landing and  Westside Notes  I from ear ova Corr.eDoad.ot.1  Mr. Chesbro, of Kelowna, came  over on Saturday's boat, and is a  guest at the Lakeview hotel.  Amonn the visitors to Kelowna  Saturday were: Mr. and Mrs. A.  Joslyn, Mr. J. H. Campbell and  daughter Geraldine, Messrs. Duncan, Lindstrom Steels, Ball, Dobbin and Nicol, snr., Pte. J. Tolhurst,  and the Misses Davidson.  The Patriotic Fund collector, Mi.  Ball, was on his usual monthly  round last week. We can but keep  the ball rolling, its bound to strike  a prize sooner or later.  At the services on Sunday Pastor Rowland made an urgent appeal to his congregation for funds  for the general liabilities of the  Presbyterian church. After the  return of the plate to the table you  could see by the look on his face  he felt like saying Gloria in Ex-  celsis I  Before Pte. J. Tolhurst goes away  it would be a good thing to have  a basket social, say next Wednesday, with two objects in view.  First, to show our est;r.-m for the  returned wounded,second, to make  a collection for a clock for the  schoolhouse, a very much needed  article, so come along and bring  your basket, and either speak a  piece or aing a song.  Now that the moon has returned  once more to lighten our darkness  tobogganing by lime light seems  to be the craze among the young  people. Bob sleighs, planks, ladders, anything that will slide, are  being brought into tequisition, and  by the peal* of laughter that can  be heard, they are certainly enjoying themselves.   Goto!  Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Martin, who  have been staying here while Mr.  Martin built a house on the Dun-  day ranch, have once more shook  the dust (or rather sniw) of West  bank from their feet. We say  come back, for we are the better  for your visit by a nice little house,  and would call to your mind the  mystic number of a certain brotherhood���490.  Sojne people aeem to think that  Westbank is not on the map at all  1 his cannot be said of the several  collectors who have been rounding  us up this past week, for they sure  found us. One gentleman, Mr,  Estabrook, of Sumineiland, spent  two days here collecting for the  Y.M.C.A. overseas branch, which  I am sure is worthy of all our support, and it sure is a pity if we  cannot supply the boys with a cup  of cocoa and a bun when ihey are  perhaps giving their all for us. It  is said he went away with a good  wad.  We really wondered what Mr.  Gellatly meant last fall by making  such a large hole on his Bushrie  ranch. We find that he lined it  wilh lumber, laid a railway track  into it, and haa still two hundred  tons of potatoes, and two cars of  onions stored in it. Just add  electric light and then it will bi  complete. He estimates it will  pay for itself this season. He seem*  to have all kinds of orders for his  produce, even Chicago asking him  to send all the potatoes he can  ship.  Mr. Everett Hogan, of the Si  and Crop Department of Agriculture, was a visitor to Gellatly thia  week biinging with him the government seed cleaner we saw illustrated in the Agricultural Journal last month, which was to be  loaned to those having small seeds  to clean. Mr. Gellatly, having a  large quantity of onion parsnip  and other seed to clean, had applied to the government for the  loan of it. It is to go to Kelowna  afterwards, so if you have any  seed to clean now is your time.  A special meeting of the direc  tors of the Farmers' Institute was  held at the home of the secretary,  Mr. Russell, who had several matters of intereat to bring before th  board with resolutions which it was  necessary to bring to their notice  from J. R. Brown and the Kelowna Institute, and one dealing with  the unjust way the Agricultural  Credit and Loan Commission Act  in regard to' applicants for loans,  hich must have more or less  effect on members of every Institute in the province. These are to  be forwarded to the advisory|board  lo be placed before the Minister  of Agriculture. One other resolution was passed on to the general  meeting of the Institute, viz. :"Shall  the Japanese who are in our midst  be allowed to become members of  the Institute."  Total exemption from incom-  tax has been secured for Canadians  serving in any military capacity  within the British Isles.  A proposal to establish a protectorate in the Holy Land under the  American flag is being mooted as  a solution of the most difficult problem in the tangled political situation in the near east.  A return laid on the table of the  House at Ottawa, shows that the  expenditure of the public work*  department during the fiscal year  1915-6, amounted to $19,539,298,  which is a decrease of about ten  millions as compared with the previous vear.  Fire which swept through a sec  tion of the business district of  Pitlsburg destroyed a dozen or  more buildings with a loss estimated at from $3.0.00,000 to $4,000,  000. Four firemen were seriously  hurt and a dozen or more so badly injured that they were removed  to hospitals.  GIL LETTS LYE  EATS DIRT  Orders for  Local  Scouts  "88 prepared-    IKelowna Troop  Troop Firat:   Self Last  Ediled by Pioneer.    Jan. 30th, '17  Orders bv command for ��� eek  ending 10th Feb. 1917.  Each patrol will parade during  the week at least once, at the call  ol its leader.  The patrol leaders and seconds  will parade at the clubroom on  Wednesday the 7th instant at 7. 15  p. in. All scouts formerly attached to the Troop who have not pas-  ed their tenderfoot or second class  tests by the 31st of January, yet  who wish to re-join the Troop,  will kindly attend at this parade,  and state their reasons for not  having passed.  There seems to be some misunderstanding in connection with  entering the daily good turns in the  diaries with which each scout in  the TrooR has been provided. If  a scout does not perform a good  turn daily, he is not living up to  the Scout Law. In other words  he is breaking his scout's promise.  While the good turn performed on  anv particular day may aeem a very  mall one, still enter it up in your  diary. This is a Troop order and  you know the seventh   Scout Law  We must be getting into our  new quarters soon, and for that  purpose shall shortly hold a working bee, to fix up the same. We  want some book shelves in the  house, and this is a splendid opportunity for aome one in lhe  Troop to do the Troop a good  turn. The lumber will be supplied  by lhe Troop.  Whilst speaking of good turns, a  verv frequent one performed, is  the act of removing pieces of  banana or orange peel from the  pavement, thereby perhaps saving  someone from a nasty fall. The  other day, however, we saw a  scout in the Troop doing the opposite. He was peeling an orange  and generously distributing the  peeling all over the pavement in  front of the confectioner's store,  which he had just patronised  Not Enough Scoutmaatere  (Victoria Headquarters) Recent.  ly we heard murmurs from the east  to the effect that the war was making great inroads into the supply  of scoutmasters.

"We are doing what we can to  further the movement in thia Province but the war has made auch  demands upon the young men  available for the position of scout-  mster that we are finding it very  difficult to keep the troopa alive  in the smaller place*. The secretary placed before us yesterday a  list of neatly a dozen villiages in  which there are good troops but  positively not a man in the place  to lake charge of them. A considerable number of new troopa  have been formed, however,  throughout the province and considering everything we have no  reason to be disatiafied with the  progress we are making." In some  parts of Canada there are so few  Masters tha* 'hrce and four Troops  are being run by one scoutmaster.  This applies prettv much to almost  every part of the Dominion.  "Archibald had been called up  in his group, and on hi* first parade  walched with aome anxiety the recruits being numbered.  "Ten, eleven, twelve," roared  the recruits.

A mean trick was played at the  post office last Friday by someone  who stole the lamps from their  sockets.  Mr. Alec. McQuarrie is the latest  recruit to devote himself to the  service of his country. He has  this week joined up with the B.C.  Horse at Vernon.  A dance is to be given by the  Fire Brigade in Morrison's Hall  next Thursday evening, February  1st. Come and spend a pleasant  evening. Cards and light refreshments.    Per couple 75c. 10-1  Messrs. Hudson, Slocks & Co.  have been making some alterations  in their store this past week, and  have occupied the upstairs of the  building which is being fitted as a  studio, whilst the ground floor will  be used as showroom and office.  When finished they expect lo have  one of the best studios in the interior.  The inhabitants of Woodlawn  apparently have a hard time to  raise their live stock. What with the  activities of sneak thieves and marauding dogs and cats, the poultry  and rabbit fancier's life is not a  happy one in that district. Thc  latest one is a rabbit killing terrier  and thi? pest has scored quite a  bag lately, one man losing sixteen  rabbits in a single night.  The sudden drop in the temperature this week caused havoc with  the water pipes and the plumbers  have been kept busy thawing them  out. The snowfall which has now  succeeded the cold snap will be  welcomed by a great many people  who have hauling to do, paiticuiar-  ly by those who have piles of logs  ready cut and awaiting sleighing  to get them to the lake.  'xmmBtta&mmoies^^  Local Choir to Render Part  of Handel's" Messiah"  It is a long time since any efforts  have been made by local societies  to provide the people of the city  with an evening's music and since  the much deplored destruction of  the Opera House nothing in the  way of a concert either sacred or  secular, has been thought of. After  the most successful " Messiah"  evening given some eighteen  months ago by the combined Methodist and Baptist choirs, an attempt was made by the Philharmonic Society to put the oratorio  on in its entirety, which proved  abortive and the practises were  discontinued much to the regret of  many who attended sheerly for  the desire for good music.  Seeing that nothing further has  been attempted by the local churches the Baptist choir have decided to renew practice and render  part three of the " Messiah " on  Good Friday. Mrs. F. A. Pedlar,  L.R.A M., has kindly consented  to conduct and has called the first  practice for Tuesday evening next,  in the Baptist church, at 7.45 sharp.  The choir wish it to be distinctly  understood that their effort is independent of the church, though  the evening's proceeds will be donated to the special effort being  made to entirely the church of  debt, and that a cordial invitation  is extended to all who may care to  attend next Tuesday; it is absolutely non-sectarian and undenominational. Quite a number have  already promised support.  Dr. Gaddes returned last Friday  from San Diego.  At the Women's Institute meeting to be held on Februrry 3rd, in  the Oddfellows' Hall, Miss Moule  will give a demonstration und Mrs.  Braden will sing. 1 ea will be served by the executive.  The Rev. A. Evans will conduct  services at the Baptist church next  Sunday. In the morning he will  speak on ' The Upward Look,"  and in the evening or. "The Constraining Love of the Gospel." The  evening music will include a male  trio.  The name of W. Wilson, Kelowna, appears in yesterday's casualties  This is Corporal Wilson, brothel  to ' Billy," who has received a gunshot wound in the right leg according to official advice sent to his  parents. We are glad to hear it is  not rated as serious.  Remember the dance in nid of  tlie Red Cross Thursday, Februaiy  8th, in Morrison's Hall. This is to  be an informal affair and a splendid program of old - fashioned  dances has been arranged which  will begin promptly al nine o'clock.  A good time is assured all who  come. Refreshments served.  A noticeable importation of selected slock poultry was made by  Mr. A. W. Cooke, of Benvoulin,  last week.

One of tbe most aerious problems  whioh fruit-growers and others wore up  against even now was the keeping u|  of the.fertility of the soil. The system  adopted by many growere of trying to  get the most out of fruit and in addition out of truck crops without putting anything back into the soil wns  most unreasonable, and must lend to  impoverishment of the soil. It was all  very well apparently for a few yours,  but when the trees began to bear  really big crops tho bad results wouhl  be seen in the smallness of the fruit.  It was absolutely necessary for the  continuous production of good fruit  either to dress the land heavily with  rdnnure or to turn under greon crops.  To produce the best results in dairying it was necessary to grade up tl.e  stook.      Thoro woro too many    scrub  cows in the district.

According tot|}e new  Dominion Government  regulations all farmers  who sell butter either  to the stores or privately, are required to have  it properly covered in  a wrapper on which  MUST appear in prominent letters the worda  "DAIRY BUTTER."  Ths lact is also emphasized that sll butter  in such psckages must  be of ths full net weight  of sixteen ounces, and  in default of asms a  fins of from $10 to $30  for each offence is im.  possd. Whey butter  must be so labelled  even when mixed with  dairy butter, snd dairy  butter retains its label  though it be mixed  with ths creamery product.  You can be supplied  with neatly - printed  wrappers for your  butter at the Kelowna  Record Office, for the  following prices: .  100PAPSMS5nNC$1.50  200  500  1000  ����  2.00  3.15  4.50  These prices include Both the  Paper, which Is the best obtainable  for the purpose, and the Printing  of same.   Please note this.  Owing to the extraordinary rise in the price of butter  parchment (which has gone up over 100 per cent) we  have been reluctantly obliged to raise our prices slightly.  Nearly all thia paper waa previously manufactured in Belgium, and needleaa to aay this supply has been entirely  cut off. Unfortunately there ia no guarantee against further increases, indeed, they are more than likely.  Kelowna Record
