 VOL IV.   NO. 50.  KELOWNA. BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, NOV. 7, 1912.  11.50 Par Annua.  Meeting of  City Council  Tourist Hotel Scheme Before  Council  The council met Monday morning, Mayor Jones presiding and  Aid. Sutherland, Copeland, Raymer, Blackwood and Millie preaent. This waa Aid. Millie's first  appearance at the board inter an  abaence of some four months, and"  he received a cordial welcome  from the rest of the council.  Mr. A. L. Meugens presented in  peraon to the council a petition for  a cement sidewalk on the west side  of Water Street from the Bank of  Montreal north to the end of the  new store buildings. The petition  was signed by the several owners  of property concerned, who were  desirous of having the sidewalk  put in at once.  Mayor Jones, commenting upon  the petition recalled the decision  of the council not to borrow money  for sidewalks this year owing to  the unsatisfactory state of the  money market.  Aid. Copeland said the sidewalk  ought to be constructed this year  if possible, aa it was very necessary  to the four new stores which were  being built.  It was pointed out that the amount needed for the one sidewalk  was too small to make it worth  while issuing debentures, and it  was finally suggested that the own-  era do the work themselves, and  the city could refund the money  next year.  The following resolution waa accordingly paaaed:  "That the city undertake the  conatruction of a sidewalk along  the weat side of Water street from  the south east corner cf Lot 1 to  the north east corner of Lot 9, Map  505, on condition that the property  owners furnish the funds _:>t;l such  time aa a Local improvement Bylaw is passed for such purpose."

Bigger, the city's building inspector submitted a report  covering his year of office as follows :  Mayor and Council of Kelowna,  G ti'imen!  In view of the fact that my contract wilh the city as Building Inspector expires on October 15th, I  beg to submit the following report:  During my term of office (twelve  months) there haa been granted  122 building permits, representing  a total cost of $249,960. Of this  amount $55,325 haa been spent in  factories, $66,475 on business  places, and the balance of $107,760  on dwelling house* and other buildings of a private nature.  I would like to add that in nearly  every case the requirements of  your Building By-law has been  complied with. Only a few ahacks  which would not total more than  $500 have been erected without a  permit.  \       Respectfully aubmitted,  J. A BIGGER.  Mr. Bigger, who was present,  drew the attention of the council  to aeveral clauses of the Building  By-law which he thought needed  amending. During hia past year's  experience of applying the by-law  he had diacovered aeveral matters  which called for improvement.  He gave aeveral inatances showing  obvious shortcomings in the bylaw and it was decided to ask Mr.  Bigger to confer with the building  committee with a view to amending the clauses in question.  Commenting upon Mr. Bigger's  report, Mayor Jones said he was  sure the building inspector had  justified his position, and that the  expense to the city was well worth  while if only in keeping track of  the buildinga which were going up  in the city. He waa pleaaed to  note the extent of the building  improvements during the year,  which made a very creditable  ahowing. Kelowna's building permits during the past year had  equalled those of Nelson, with a  population twice aa large, and, in  fact, in proportion to the population, waa the largest of any in the  province,  Following Mr. Bigger a deputation consisting of Messrs. DeHart,  J. F. Burne, A. W. Bowser, Pooley  and Dr. Dickson, waited on the  council in respect to the site for  the new hotel which a local syndicate propose to erect at the corner  of the park facing the lake.  The delegation had a proposition  to submit upon whioh they wished  to get an expression of opinion  from the council. The triangular  site owned by the syndicate at the  corner of the park waa not auitable  for the purpoaes of a good hotel  and they wished to make an exchange with the city of the sharp  angle at the corner near the ferry  wharf for such a portion to the  west as would give a square site  for the building. The exchange,  it waa contended, would give the  city a valuable piece of land which  would widen the approach to the  ferry wharf and give a good open  apace in a place where it waa moat  needed, and at the same time not  detract in any way from the beauty  of the park. The syndicate would  also be willing to make n considerable grant towards the upkeep of  the park each year.  Great emphasis was laid both by  the council and the delegation  upon the great need for a first-  class hotel. Aid. Copeland snid  he believed the city was losing  anywhere from $1,000 to $2,000  per day from the fact that the  preaent hotel accommodation was  utterly inadequate.  Mr. Bowser said he had known  travellers who had business in  Kelowna to go straight through to  Penticton- on the boat, stay over  night there, and come up to Kelowna in the morning, hurrying through  their business in time to catch the  afternoon boat up the lake again.  Thia sort of thing was hurting the  town, and should not be allowed  to continue.  Several suggestions were made  as to the exact location of the  hotel, and it waa decided that the  council should in company with  the delegation make a personal  inspection of the site. It was also  arranged that the council ahould  meet in committee later in the day,  when those interested in promoting the hotel should submit s  definite proposition with a plan  shpwing the exact site required,  and stating what they were prepared to do in the way of assisting  with the up-keep of the park. The  delegation then withdrew. <  A petition was read from owners  on Leon avenue for the laying of  a sewer along that street. Mayor  Jonea said they had had a number  of petitions in and aa the engineera  would be ready shortly to commence work on them it would be  necessary to pass a resolution officially approving of the petitions so  thnt the preliminariea of assessment, Ate, could be proceeded  with.  A resolution was accordingly  passed that " it was desirable " ip  construct the sewers mentioned in  the petitions received to date/.  A resolution was also passed  that the salaries of the police be  raised, Chief Sutherland to $115  per month nnd night constable  McKay to $85.  The police report for the month  waa read showing a long list of  convictions, all "drunk and disorderly " except three. The gangs  of men being brought in for the  various railway constiuction camps  were keeping the police busy.  Fines amounting  to  $149.50 had  Rutland News  Continued on p*i�� 6  Woodrow Wilson is  New President  Woodrow Wilson, the Democratic candidate for the presidency  of the United States, was elected  Tuesday by an overwhelming majority. Roosevelt comes next while  Taft was hopelessly defeated with  only a very small vote to his credit.  Thos. R, Marshall ia the newly  elected vice-president.  Benevolent Society Reorganises for Winter Work  The Benevolent Society met at  the home of Mrs. Geo. Rowcliffe  Saturday last when the following  officers  were elected to carry on  the winter's work:���  President-Mrs. H. H. Millie.  Ist Vice-Pres.-Mrs. Dan. Campbell  2nd Vice-Pres.���Mrs. W. Cameron.  3rd Vice-Pres.-Mrs. Allan Wilson.  Secretary-Mrs. Capt. Knight.  Treasurer-Mrs. C. C. Josselyn.  Friends having unused clothing  (especially children's) are kindly  asked to forward same to Mrs.  Millie.  (From out own coorapond.nl)  The Halloween social given by  the Mount View Ladies Aid, at the  Sproul residence, was a big auccess.  A filling supper of Boston baked  beans, pumpkin pies, etc., was  partaken of by the crowd, who  came prepared to enjoy it. Numerous games and music occupied  the balance of the evening. Rev.  Mr. Vance as chairman intioduced  the following talented performers:  Trio, Messrs. Vance.Clarke&Schell  Song, by Mrs. G Whitaker of  Ellison. Duet, Misses Ida Fleming  and Flossy Dilworth. Piano Solo,  Miss Smith (sister to Tom). Song,  A. E. Clarke. Recitation, Miss  Annie Gay. Humoroua song, Mr.  Kelly. The Ladies' Aid Society  was enriched by $25 as the result  of the social.  Mr. W. Loosemore left on Wednesday for England.  The purchase price of Mr. Geo.  E. Yule's property should have  been given as $7,100.  Mean Horse Thieves  Mr. M. Hereron and Messrs.  W. R. Glenn it Son were the victims of as mean a trick as we have  heard of for a long time, this week,  and one which should bring the  perpetrators, if they can be caught,  to a sharp taste of the law.  On Tuesday afternoon, about  5.30, Messrs. Glenns' horse and  delivery wagon, which had been  left standing outside, dissppeared,  Mr, Hereron's horse and rig, which  was tied outside the Club, also  vanished. Although search was  made all the evening no trace of  the missing outfits could be found.  Mr. Hereron, thinking his horse  might have made for home, hired  an. automobile and went up to  Ellison, bul as nothing had been  heard of it there, ha returned to  town. Early next morning he hired  a horse and buggy from the livery  and again went up to his place al  Ellison. This time he put some of  his men on to search the range,  thinking the lost animal might  have made for the hills. He was  glad, however, to find on his return to Kelowna lhat his horse had  been found over the creek on  Abbott street, tied to a tree. His  indignation, however, waa great  when he saw the condition of the  poor beast, which is a valuable  one. It had evidently been driven  hard and furiously the night before,  and then, heated and tired, had  been tied to a tree to spend the  rest of the night without any protection in the chilly air.  In the meantime Mr. Glenn had  found his horse in similar plight in  the hush by the psrk.  It is difficult to find any reason  for such a contemptible piece, not  only of impudence, but of downright cruelty. Il is probable that it  was the action of some drunken  party of rough-nocka who ate making things pretty lively for the  police just now. But whoever it  was it is to be hoped the offenders  will be brought to book.  Kelowna Brotherhood  Meetings  The first of the winter series of  Sunday afternoon meetings of the  Kelowna Brotherhood was held  last week when a splendid address  was given by the Rev. A. Dunn, on  the appropriate subject of "Brotherhood." There was a large attendance and the meeting was one of  the most enjoyable and auccessful  ever held. Mr. Stanley Hodkinson  contributed a aolo, " Arm, Arm ye  Brave I" which was much appreciated. Next Sunday Mr. Kerr is to  speak on " War and Peace," 'followed by a discussion. The time  of meeting it might be mentioned  is to be altered in future Irom 3.30  to 3.45 p.m.  Capt. Harman who was in  Kelowna a few days ago haa  along with his associates from the  Old Country, made an extensive purchaae of Glenmore property, acquiring a block of land to  the value of about $40,000. He  ia making arrangements with the  company to have this large tract  developed and planted in trees  next spring.  Proposed New  Tourist Hotel  Scheme  Begins to Assume a  Definite Skap e  On Monday next the Epworth  League of the Methodist Church  will hear ��� paper by Mr, W. J  Clement on " Africa and African  Missionary Work."  D. Chapman, foreman on the city  sewerage worka, returned last week  from an interesting trip back eaat,  bringing back a bride from Winnipeg.  Kelowna'a need of more and  better hotel accommodation has become so painfully well-known not  only in the city but outside too,  that the urgent need of doing aome-  thing to relieve the present situation has begun to force itself wilh  ever recurring emphasis upon the  Board of Trade, the City Council  and the business men and merch  ants generally. From varioua  causes, and those who live here  know best what those causes are  Kelowna has come to occupy nn  important position in the eye of  the world amongst the promising  cities of the west, and each month  sees more and more people anxious to visit Kelowna and investigate at fust hand those ^attractions  which have brought the city to th,  front from an investor's point of  view. Not only that but Kelowna offers unrivalled beauties and  opportunities for health giving  recreation for tourists from the  coaal and other large cities. These  people want to come. But we cannot accomodate them and they go  elsewhere.  There are a few men at least in  town who have determined this  kind of thing can not go on. A  new first-class hotel must be provided and that at aa early a date  as possible. One or two schemes  have been mooted but for some  reason have died out again. Now  however, a local syndicate haa  been formed which means business  and the very attractiveness of their  proposition will go a long way towards ensuring them success.  Thia syndicate, which consists  amongst others, of Messrs. J. F.  Burne. F. R. E. DeHart, A W.  Bowser, Dr. Dickson. W. R. Pool,  ey, S. C. Coaens, ice, have taken  over the triangular piece of ground  at the comer of th* park, sold by  Mr. D. Lloyd-Jones to tbe People's  Trust Co. This location is undoubtedly not only the finest in the city  for a first-rate tourist hotel, but the  finest in the valley. Centrally  located near the wharf and business section, it commands a magnificent view of the lake and  mountaina, and ita convenience for  boating and bathing, and ita proximity to a park which can be made  as beautiful aa anything in the province, would afford an unrivalled  inducement to tourists.  The triangular shape of the plot  however, haa been found unsuitable for the satisfactory planning  of such a hotel. The syndicate haa,  therefore, approached the council  for an exchange of a portion of  the land for another piece to the  west. This would give a square  site, which would allow of much  belter treatment from an architec-  ural point of view.  Thia proposal aa now before th*  council is in brief, that the syndicate undertake to creet a strictly  modern first-class hotel, to cost  not less than $100,000, exclusive  of furnishing, and to have not leas  than 75 guest rooms.  As a consideration for the city  making the deaired exchange of  land the company pledge themselves to donate to the city for the  upkeep of the public park the sum  of $5,000 over a period of not lass  than three yeara; to lay down in  flower beds and grass a certain  proportion of the park, and to provide walka, trees, and shrubberies.  They alao agree after this three  yeara to pay $1000 a vear towards  the care of the Park, provided they  have representation on the Board  of Park Commissioners.  This proposal the council seem  disposed to accept. It is necessary  however, before any part of the  park, which is public property,  can be disposed of in any way, to  submit a by-law to tha electors.  This by-law ia now in preparation,  and will in all probability be read  at the next meeting of the council.  Sutherland Beits Toler  in Wrestling Match  Chief Bob Sutherland added one  more to hia long list of triumpha on  the mat with a decisive victory  over Ed. Toler, in the Opera House  last night.  The match was arranged and  managed by the Fire Brigade boys  and though the unpleaaant weather  conditiona had the effect of reducing the attendance there waa still  a good number present.  A short preliminary programme  was gone through before the chief  wrestling event.  Dan McMillan and Connie  Knight, two young aspirants for  honors in the wrestling world were  matched against each other, Dan  getting the first and third falls and  Connia the aecond.  Then came a boxing bout between Ernest Hoy and Claude  Newby, followed by a surprise  event in the shape of an exhibition  of juggling by Russell Parker, at  present fulfilling an engagement  at Dreamland. Hia clever feata in  the manipulation of tennis balls,  racquets, Indian clubs, lamps, and  other articlea excited the wonder  and applause of the audience.  At about 9.15 the two champions  appeared on the atage, nnd were  received with great enthusiasm.  Bob, the local man was plainly the  favorite, and a popular one ton.  Toler is a big, powerful fellow, and  the two as they faced each other  on the mat gave.'promise of some  fine sport.  The visitor showed amazing agility, but hia speed availed him little against the great strength and  superior science of Bob, who kept  his opponent on the defensive practically the whole time. The first  round lasted 22 minutes, when  Sutherlend getting in his powerful  "scissors'' hold forced Toler's shoulders down amid loud cheering.  T*ie aecond and fast round waa  shorter still. Toler proved no  match for Bob and very soon found  himself in a grip from which there  was no escape, end at the end ef  14 minutes the match had been  settled with another fall to Sutherlend.  The result puts another feather  in the cap of Robert, whose lid ia  already pretty well adorned in lhat  respect.  The Catholic Church Ladies'  Aid is making arrangementa to  hold another " chicken supper " in  the Opera House, on or about Saturday November 30th. Further  particulars will be announced later.  J.

Considerable attention is being  devoted at the present time to tlie  working of the Municipal Clauses  Act, which is Bible and Prayer  liook of city and district municipal  bodies throughout the province.  It was through the efforts of tlie  Union that the special committee  which sat in Kelowna n sboit lime  ago was uupuiulud, a.id llie greater  part of this laat convention was  devoted to the same consideration,  Some of die amendments recommended were: ���  "That the fee for acceptance of  sub-division plans be increased  to  $5,   I hut sub-division plans showing  new roads be not accepted unless  die roads be opened up by the  sub-divider.

Hut this cannot be  proved with any greater degree of  certainty than can some of the Darwin  (theories.  Indeed, the oldest walking sticks  we know of were those used by the  lloniiins In the time of the emperors.  Somewhat later they oaono Into use  in other, countries lu Europe. Tho  first canes wo know of were tall  staffs, higher than u man's head, and ���  were used only by persons aB an attribute or their office. In tho sixteenth century walking sticks were  first used by persons in private life  us a sort of support while walking.  Those, in this capacity, were used for  a Ioiik time, then uradually ehangcl  into trail-looking ihings which were  the mere plaything of the trlfler or  tho -dandy.  In ihe nineteenth century the canos  beoiuno iui object of fashion in the  woman's would, nnd in Paris received  the name of "support des dnmos."  Citnw for feminine uso wore intute  out or the most expensive materials,  such as costly woods liiludd wllth  mother-of-pearl, gold, silver, precious  stones, and real pearls.  How Cane Received Its Name  This cane received Its name from  e popular drama at that time bolnn  given on the' stage of Ihe Theatre  Franenis in Parle. Under the same  category must bo mentioned the  "Sprinkling oano," made hollow so  thai II could be rilled with water, and  tiy touching n ballon could be made  to r mpty lis contents on the passerby.    This  ealle  In  time  proved  to be  such a nuisance und annoyance to un-  mmpectlnir people lhat the police  wore obliged lo forbid lhe use of It,  There were other curiosities, such ns  canes which, whon hidden springs  were touched,, could be converted  Into swords, pipes, umbrellas, und ong  even which fell apnrt uud became a  email   tiible.  The most valuable collection or  cniies was ownisl by the late King  Edward, and Ihe one mining Ihrui  most greni.lv prized by bis Majesty  wus n walking stick made from tho  branch of nn oak tree under which  the ill-fated Charles II. once look refuge from his pursuers.

Lumbering a Science  That lumbering should properly  be regarded as a science and as a  profession, is ths substance of resolutions recently adopted by the  British Columbia Lumber ���' and  Shingle Manufacturer's Association  and by the Canadian Forestry  Association, favoring the establishment of a course in logging engineering at the new University' of  British Columbia. The success  which has attended the agricultural  colleges of Canada and the United  States in equipping the farmer/  sons with a scientific knowledge ot  husbandry, is evidence of what  might be expected from similar  courses devoted to logging engineering. The courses of study in  our agricultural colleges, have been  intensely practical and helpful.  The lumber industry deserves the  same consideration for those who  desire to become expert loggers  and lumbermen, in the broadest  sense of the term. Logging is rapidly coming to be recognized as  one'of the most important features  in the lumber industry. Each year  the difficulties increase and the consequent demand for knowledge  grows more apparent.  Weeds Poison Crops  It has been generally supposed  that the principal effect upon the  soil, of weeds in tho growing crops,  was that they took awav moisture  and plant food that should go lo  the crops. Recent investigation at  Cornell University has demonstrated that they had a deleterious  effect upon crops in that they poison lhe plants by the intermingl  ing of their roots. Corn and weeds  were allowed to grow side by side  in similar soil but with partitions  placed so that the roots were kept  apart. The corn and weeds grew  normally. In another box the corn  and weeds were placed so that the  roots could intermingle, with the  result that the corn was stunted  and its growth materially retarded.  It is a case of incompatibility of  association.

That  thought was In the mini) ot the Ancient*, and Is almost prehistoric In  Its origin, 't was the guiding star of  Columbus in his several voyages and  his new found world was merely Incidental to a discovery to which it  barred the way for tbe time being  and It was the guiding star of many  a navigator since his day.

Spassk Is  a district peop'sd partly by Greek Orthodox Russians and partly by Moslem  Tatars. The Orthodox are usually In  an ecstatic mood, and are given to  forming sects. They founded a Tol-  etoyen sect with much the same  tenets as those of the 1'olstoyaos tn  the Caucasus. The local persant commissary began the usual persecution.  The sect retorted by predicting that  Tolstoy would arrive to save them ln  Ap||l, 1913. The leaders were Imprisoned for 'Inducing others to leave  the Christian religion,' altho they had  siiectfically adhered to Christianity,  'lhe other peasants were so Incensed  mill this that they actually did abjure Christianity.

WATCHES THAT  KEEP TIME  The value of a watch is in its ability  to keep time, and when it fails to do  this is really of no use to the owner.  Realizing this, we have endeavored  at all times to keep only watches that  we can recommend as being accurate.  We do not claim that our watches  are all perfect time-keepers, but do  claim that they are equal to any and  superior to the average.  Each watch is sold under our own  personal guarantee, and with eight years  of experience in Kelowna we have a  good knowledge of the class of watch  most suited to a dry climatt such as  ours.  If you are interested in watches at all  come in and let us show you our extensive stock, for out of our large assortment you will undoubtedly see something that will be of interest to you.  J. B.

Mother had one, and when I furnished  my house, I got one. Every maid I ever had has  been enthusiastic about the Gurney-Oxford."  " What are its good points ?"  " Well, the best is that it cooks and bakes like a dream.  I never tasted such golden brown biscuits or auch f lakey  pastry as my Gurney-Oxford turn* out, and roasts,  fowls and puddings are always a success."  " Is it easy to operate ?"  " My dear, it's simplicity itself. The Gurney Economizer, which you cannot get on any other rsmge,  regulates the fire simply by putting one small lever up  or down. You never heard of anything to simple.  And by a system of divided flues the oven is always  uniformly heated. You know what that means���biscuits,  bread, roasts, not one half overdone and the other half  underdone, but properly done all through.

C A. Washburn, secretary of  the Merchants' Association, wrote  asking the council to take steps to  improve the crossings nn the streets  which were in bad shape. Aid.  Copeland said the matter was  already being attended to.  The following letter was read  from Mr. G. F. Teale, the city foreman i���  "Gentlemen,���1 beg to inform  you that upon Several occasions  the city stop cocks have been tampered with by plumbers and other  persons contrary to the provisions  of By-law 80.  Upon several occasions it has  been necessary to dig down to the  stops after ihey have been interfered with by people who have no  right to touch same.  I have frequently found water  being supplied to houses after  same has been turned off by  myself.  If this situation is allowed to  continue it will be only a short  time before the water department  records will be of no value.  I am bringing this matter to your  attention because one of the principal offenders has been warned  by myself but has taken no notice  of such warning."  Your obedi-nt servant,  J. F. TEAL.  The committee were instructed  to take steps to prevent interference with the city's stop cocks.  Aid. Sutherland had some re  marks to make on the subject of  sub-divisions. A property owner  had lately pointed out that if a  block adjoining his was sub-divided in a certain way, the value of  his property would be very much  injured. This was a reasonable  complaint, said Aid. Sutherland,  and he thought it might be well in  future when sub-division plans  were submitted to consult the own-  ers of adjoining property, or at  least to give them by a notice in  the paper, the chance to raise  objections.  A report (noticed on another  page), of the Municipal Convention  at Revelstoke was read by the  city clerk who had been present  as a delegate.  As there was considerable business still to dispose of the meeting  then adjourned until afternoon.  Fish '  Weekly    shipments     of  Haddie, Halibut, Kippers,  15c. and 20c. per lb.

The McKenzie  -Limited-  tSJ,  The council met again in the  afternoon when several matters of  unfinished business were taken up  Aid. Copeland stated that several people who were building on  Long street had asked to have the  brush cleared from the street and  the stumps pulled out. The committee were authorized to have the  , work done.  A resolution was passed re-appointing Mr. J. A. Bigger building  inspector at a salary of $15 per  month.  Aid. Copeland announced that  the Board of Works had visited  Coronation avenue where the To.  bacco Co. wished to have the tern-  porary plank sidewalk placed. The  Board recommended that the work  be done. They felt that the com.  pany was doing a good deal for  the town and were entitled to some  benefit in return.  On a question from Aid. Sutherland as to where the money was  to come from, Aid. Copeland said  he thought it might be taken from  the money devoted to* new streets,  A doubt was raised as to the  possibility of this and it was decided to refer the matter [to the city  solicitor,  Aid. Copeland brought up again  the advisability of the city buying  a team, and the matter was discussed but no action taken.  Aid. Blackwood mentioned that  the work of clearing the recreation  ground in the park was not satisfactory. He did not consider that  the contract had been completed  properly.  Mayor Jones suggested that a  meeting of the park commissioners  be called to go into the matter.  The   meeting   then   adjourned  until Monday next.    m  Bandmaster Bornholdt from Arm  strong is taking in hand the reor  ganizing of the Kelowna Band and  will hold weekly practices, the first  to be on Thursdsy (to-night).
