Raymer Makes  Bye-Election Necessary  Tho council held its regular fortnightly meeting Friday morning last,  the Mayor and Aldermen Copeland,  Duggan, Harvey, Battenbury and Suth  erland being present.  A butch of correspondence was first  gone through. This included a letter  from the Volunteer Fire Brigade asking thc council lo take steps to have  the old livery barn on Leon Avenue  torn down, the building having been  twice on fire and not repaired.  Alderman Duggan said hie firm were  in communication with the owner of  this property and thoy would advise  him that it would be necessary to  have tho building repaired or torn  down.  The Bank of Montreal asked the city  council to put through a new bylaw  in connection with the loan against  current revenue for 1916. Alderman  Sutherland accordingly introduced Bylaw No. 218 whioh was given three  readings.  The Chief Constable's report was  read, as follows:  "A burglary ocoureod between 11 p.m.  on the 9th and 8 a.m. on the 10th of  March when tho Btoro of Jorman Hunt  Bernard avenue was entered by somo  person who emptied tho cash register  of its contents amounting to $29.00  in silver and paper. currency. .The thief  has not been arrested. This is the  first burglary reported since I assumed my duties in May, 1914.  '^Ernest .Schiobel, a perman reservist,  who has reported monthly to!me since  the outbreak of the war; absoondod  during the month and is now in \\o-  natohee. Wash,, U.S.A. His wife, two  children and father-in-law are still- in  Kelowna. Schiobel was formerly . in  the employ of Dootor Boyos, is a native of Leipzig, Saxony and had solved in one.of the Ulhan regiments.  "During the month many complaints  were received about poultry running  at large and destroying gardens etc  A good many people are not aware  that poultry com�� under the pound  by-law and therefore have no more  right to bo at large than horses and  cuttle. The penalty is a fine not  exceeding flOO and costs."  A total of six oases brought before  Magistrate Weddell during the month  were four drunk and disorderly, one  Indian drunk, and one supplying an  Indian with liquor. The total fines collected, amounted to (47.50 Trade  license money collected during month  amounted to $165.00.  Alderman Copeland reported having  called for tenders for watering the  streets during the coming summer, the  tenders to be in not later than' April  27th. Tho question had been raised  as to whether one or two carte were  to be used this year, and nothing had  yet been decided.  Alderman Harvey i said .he had heard  several complaints from people on his  street that they did not want the  watering and objeeting to be taxed  for it.  It was decided to leave tha matter  over until the tenders had been received when the board of works would  report to the council.  Alderman Harvey reported that (roes  had been planted on tho streets and  in the park and cemetery. He recommended that the parks committee be  authorized to employ a man to cultivate the young trees on tho streets.  To this the council agreed.  Mr. Thos. Bulman waited upon tho  council in order to ascertain upon  what conditions the counoil would bo  willing to give sewer connection with  the property of the B. 0. Growers,  Ltd., for certain manufacturing purposes. He suggested that the council  should furnish the pipe if his company paid the cost of installing   t.  Alderman Sutherland pointed out  that the city had at present no pipe  on hand, and to purchase it would Involve an outlay of $450 whioh was almost impossible at tho present time.  An alternative scheme was discussed  of connecting with the pipe already  put in from the Kelowna Canning  Cn.'s property,  After further consideration the Mayor informed Mr. Bulman that the counoil would do all in .their power to  give a sewer connection to the property of his company provided the bene-  Trebizond Falls to  Russian Armies  50,000 Turk Prisoners -- Means  Finish of Baghdad Armies  The full of Trebizond to the .Russian  .army is confirmed in an oB'icial communication.

For instance only within the  last few days Home busy bodies have  been spreading tho wildest stories concerning- two or three well-known Kolowna boys who have, according to  them been killed, wounded, shelled or  gaSHed, several times over. When carefully sifted down theso rumors have  been found to have practically no  foundation in fact, hut nevertheless  have been the moans of causing groat  distress to the relatives and friends  ol the ones concerned.  Lieut. W. It, Bailee, amongst others  has boon receiving this kind of attention, but wo aro glad to note that  according to a cable recoived yesterday ho is on his way home. It might  be as well to state too that the only  momber of the Fire Brigade about  whom any definite word has been received is Milton Wilson, who waB reported wounded last woek.  Tho casualty list this week contained the name of Corp. W. Shugg, of  Kelowna amongst the-wounded. This  apparently was an error. Last Saturday Mrs. Shugg received a cablegram  convoying the information that her  husband, who only recently arrived in  England, was siok in hospital. In  reply to a wire for further particulars  a message came Tuesday that at present nothing more could be given, but  fuller details would be forwarded as  soon us received.

No doubt tV.most acute problem  which confronts, the cities und municipals ties of the west ut the present time  is the (litneulty of collecting taxes, and  almost without exception municipal  bodies have large accumulations of  arrears. This, as we are all aware,  ia the aftermath of the astonishing  era of lund speculation antl over hasty development. When times were  good nnd everybody was more or  less drugged with "optimism" dobts  were incurred which seemed easy to  liquidate, No one, apparently gavo  a thought to the possibility that a  revenue, once established, might some  day fall oil. Bonds were easy to sell  and so long as a city kept within  the legal limits of its borrowing power, people felt perfectly safe in going  full steam ahead. Land values kept  rising and with them 'assessments, but  still taxes rolled in ffreely, and as no  difficulty waB experienced in paying interest and sinking fund on existing debentures, c ouncils were encouraged���  nay urged, to look aroung for more  worlds to conquer, so to speak.  Theoretically, of course, taxes can  never become bad debts, aa they constitute a first and indisputable charge  upon the property on which they are  levied. No {natter what real estate  juggling takes place, tho property can  always be seized for the amount of  tho taxes, and only in the most absurdly extreme cases can the value's  of land fall below the amount of tho  taxes against it. But cash is needed.  A municipality may have assets in  abundance���must have, because in a  very real and definite sense every foot  ol" land within its boundaries is an  asset to bo placed against its indebtedness. If however the cash ib not  forthcoming���that is if the taxes are  not paid, then financial difficulties are  bound to arise. And happy indeed is  the town in which they have not arisen in these days of stringency. How  to make theso perfectly good , assets  produce tho cash is the puzzle.  There seems to be something inadequate about tho machinery in    B. C,  for the enforcement    of tux payments.  If you don't think so, take a scat   on  some city council and get yourself appointed    to tho    financo    commiteoe!  Pushed by urgent necessity municipalities have been obliged as never before  to use all  tho power of the law     to  keep up the flow of cash, and a    perfect  epidemic  of  tax  sales has broken  out in all parts of the province, with,  it is to be feared,  very disappointing  results.    Buyers have been few,     nnd  sales almost negligible.     The reasons  for this are not far to seek. N'o    real  solid  inducements  ore offered to buyers, but only a gagpry gambling chance  of winning all or nothing.     What the  public need, apparently to draw them  out to tax sales and turn them   into  buyers, is the certainty that  if     the  property should be redeemed they will  at least be paid for their trouble     in  holding it for the time being.  This matter of tax sales was     th  .   subject of an interesting discussion at  the meeting of tho Board of Trade on  Tuesday night when Mr. R. B.    Kerr  made the proposal that British Columbia adopt the ingenious method which  has been in force in Washington    for  some years.    In that state tax    sales  are not limited to one certain     day,  but are continuous, so that at     any  time a person so disposed can pay   a  delinquents' taxes and get a certificate  giving him a chance to get the property    after    a    certain period has expired.       Should    the    original owner  "come through" before that period has  passed then the purchaser of the certificate gets his money back with an  added 15 per cent, interest.     So   that  apart from his chance of winning     a  prize it is a good investment anyway.  Tho somewhat generous rate of interest furnishes a sufficiently attractive  inducement for anyone with the price  to take the burden off the municipality's shoulders and provide the re tdy  cash to meet its debts, and it also  acts as a powerful persuasive to taxpayers to payt promptly. If no one  comes forward t��> purchase the -rortiii-  oato then the municipality claims 15  per cent interest from the time the  taxes become delinquent until they ure  paid. Although thc rale of interest  may seem high yet the fact that all  the attendant expenses of tax salt's are  obviated makes the cost to the delinquent actually less than thc present  plan.  The idea wounds all right ��� and  should be well worth thinging about  anyway.  THE WORSHIP ur BIGNESS  The worship of bigness is one of the  worst forms of Idolatry to whioh our  age la addicted. We ought to make  our children understand that the Brii  ish Empire is great, not because its  frontiers are washed by all the sens,  but because the people who live beneath its flag aro free to speak their  own languages, and live their own  lives. The British Empire is the highest form of political organisation yet  evolved, because it is held together,  not by force, but by common interests  and sympathies. If we teach the children in our schools that in national  and international life the ultimate test  of every act is "Is i+ fair?" we have  laid deep and true thc foundation of a  nobler civilization.���Canon Masterinan.  .NOW THE TROUBLE BEGINS  I'nder the spreading chestnut tree,  a stubborn* auto stands; and Smith  an angry man is he, with trouble on  his hands. He cusses softly to himself and crawls beneath the car and  wonders why it didn't bust before he  got so far. Tlie carbureter seems to  be the cause of all his woe; he tightens half a dozen bolts but still it  doesn't go. And then he tries the  steering gear, but no trouble there,  until, wet with perspiration, ho quits  in sheer despair. He squats behind  a bush to give his brains a chance to  coo], and ponders on his training in a  correspondence school; and then he  starts thc job once more until by  chance he's seen, the cause of all the  trouble is���he's out of gasoline.

Iho big drop in immigration to  Canada since the war started is  shown in the figures for immigration  for PUT) given to tho commons by  Hon. Dr. Uoche, in uuswer to a question by Mr. E. M, Macdonald, Pietou.  The total for tho your was only 48,-  466, as compared with 381,878 for  1918-14 and 402,433 for 1912-13. The  volume of immigration now is only  about one-eighth of what it was two  years ago. Almost all the now  arrivals last year wore from tho United States.  French scientists arc claiming that  the intensely powerful soarchlight now  used on the (ierman zeppelin is the  invention of a Frenchman, Monsieur  Duasaud, who described the new lighting system to tho Academy of Science  four years ago, but it appears not to  have been put into use by the French  forces merely because of rod tape, delay. Tho invention is sailed "cold  light," and it iB said t'o realize an  effective illuminating power equal to  90 per cent of the initial energy,  whereas in ordinary lighting systems  80 to 90 per cent of the energy is  absorbed in heat.

If  the reader will carefully measure out  thirty-nine feet, un idea of tho burse's  capacity in this direction will be gathered. Such a distance a steeplechase  horse called Old Chandler is reported  to have covered at Warwick some  years ago, and there is more than one  'apparently authentic record of ahorse  clearing seven feet in height.  Tho scene of one such exploit was at  the Phoenix Park, and the horso was  an anima 1 named Pot8os, himself  called Turnip. 'I he minimi belonged  to Sir. E. Crofton, andti tho Duke of  Richmond, then Lord Lieutonant of  Ireland, wagered ��600 that seven feet  in height could not bo cleared. A wall  of tho requisite dimensions waB built  and Turnip was rides at it. He did  what was asked of him in perfect  style, but it happened that his Grace,  not knowing that the feat was ready  for performance, was not looking when  the jump was made, and Turnip wus  therefore riddon over it again, not  only successfully, but easily.  The wall of Hyde Park, opposite  Gvosvenor Place, Bix nnd a half feet  on the inside, with a drop of eight  feot into tho road beyond, has also  been cleared.  _J ^O   Greenwood apiarists find that the  severe winter killed oil' many of tho  bees in that part  of B.C.

In the  k^ early days of the "buzzer" there was  a general exodus of people from tho  crowded parts to the outskirts. In  fact, in the warm weather many people with their families bivouacked in  the parks' and suburbs for several  hours in the middle of the night. E*>-  cently. the processions of men, women  and children along the roads leading  to the country have been diminishing  but there is no desire to obey the  police injunction to "find shelter from  the streets. People seem to prefer to  be outside. In order to prevent these  walks into the country, suggestions  have been made to stop the "buzzers"  and use other means of calling the  npecials to duty, but so strong is the  feeling in favor of the alarm being  given that the authorities dare not  make the change.  "The White Feather"  With the advent of the moving picture into the west, the impression Iras  come to prevail that anything oit of  the ordinary in a theatrical production is from the movie "grist mill."  This is not so with "The White  Feather," which has been billed to appear at the local Opera House, one  night only, Wednesday, May 3rd. "The  White Feather," is not n moving r".-  ture. It is a play of the at-rongest  character; played by artists mnoh bigger than the ordinary.  Considerable paraphernalia is carried by the Sherman Company, '."he  equipment, or "props" (as they are  referred to in green room pai'anco)  contain a true facsimile of a concealed wireless telegraphy apparatus, such  as was discovered in use by Gorman  spies when they were rounded up in  large number by British secret tor-  vice agents.  ' The production of the whole is  stupendous. The lines are written  with a "punoh." The action, though  convulsivly humorous in parta rises  to a tense pitch of interest, so great  that the audience is held to    almost  breathless silence.  The management of the Opera House  is indeed fortunate id securing so high  class nn ontortainmont. It is only  through thc clfortB of W. H. Sherman  that Hub has been made possible.

CHEBBY PITS WOBTH MONEY  It is estimated by the United States  department of agriculture that ,1,600  tons of cherry pits now go to waste  at the large canneries of that country  annually. It is believed that these  pits oan be made to yield two valuable oils and also a meal for feeding  cattle. These oils may prove to re  a substitute for almond oil and bitter  almond oil, both of which ure now  imported. In addition to tha oils and  meal, there is now a waste ol lOS.OOO  gallons of cherry juice in the seeding  opera tions which can be us >d in tbe  manufacture of jelly, syrup or afeoriol.  Investigations have not yet been  carried far enough to determine oj>  just how small a scale these by-products can be made profitable, but is  is believed that in cases vhero so /oral  canneries are operating within a reasonable distance of each other that  Misses they may combine their putput at a  central point and utilize it at a profit for all concerned. Studies are being carried ori to determine if it cannot also be done profitably on a small  soale.  Some time ago a use was found for  peach and apricot pits in California,  and these are now being used at a  profit.

Owing to the fact that the season  is now well advanced and the  long evenings call for outdoor recreation, it has been decided tn  abandon the Messiah rehearsals  for the present and renew them in  the early fall. The arrangement,  although best under the circumstances, is greatly disfavored by  many of the choir members, and  a suggestion would be welcomed  whereby practise of some sort  could still be mninlained. The  choir tender their lhanks and appreciation to Mr. Drury Pryce for  so ably conducting.  As briefly announced last week  the choirs of the Methodist and  Baptist churches are rendering a  sacred cantata next Sunday evening in the Methodist church. The  '���antata, "The Gospel of Easier  Day," has been learned specially  lor the occasion under the ronduc-  torship of Miss F. A. Pearson,  L.R.A.M. The solo parts will be  sustained by Mrs, P. Harding,Mrs,  H. McClure and Miss D. Evans  (soprano), Miss E. Magee (contralto), Mr. F. Pedlar (if nor), and  Mr. S. Weeks (baritone). There  will be a chorus of about thirty  voices, which should prove an inducement to the people to turn out  in good numbers. The evening  will close with" the rendering of  Handel's Hallelujah Chorus. Miss  E. Jones will preside_ at the organ  and Mr. Harold Etter at the piano.  A collection will be taken up, for  the benefit of the choirs' funds.  Mrs. F. A: Martin returned from  the coast yesterday.  Miss Emma Millie left yesterday  on a-week s visit to Penticton.  Mr. J.

All Scouts  who have bicycles will be able to cycle  there, but the problem is how to get  all the others there as it is too far  to walk in one day.  Scouts should remember that the  Easter holidays give them a great  chance to pass their first-class test of  the seven-mile hike,' etc.  Recruit E. Small of the Eagles, passed his Tenderfoot test and L. Gaddes  of the Wood-Pigeons passed "Kim's  Game,' for the second class test on  Friday, April 14th.  It is the duty of all scouts now that  so -many soldiers have left Kelowna,  to go and do their good turns by  chopping and piling the kitchen wood  for the mothers and wives of the  soldiers who have gone to fight, for  us. Besides this many other jobs can  also be done; don't let those dependent on a righting man do the rough  work outside, such as chopping the  kitchen wood, etc., thing whether you  would like t�� see your own mother  down in the back yard trying to  split a   knotty piece of pine wood.  Thjft game played on Saturday last  was to test the scouts' knowledge of  the locality in which they Eve. After  roll call they were told to leave the  hall together and to gather up a  pine cone, a pussy willow and a clam  shell before returning. The first one  to return with these three articles was  to be awarded ten points. A very  spirited race was the result and the  first scouts were back in an extraordinarily short tune. The pussy willow seemed to be the stumbling, block  to most of them as they brought beck  something which looked like it but  was not a pussy willow.

POOR FATHER  Children, hushl for father's resting;  he is sitting, tired and sore, with his  feet upon the table and his hat upon  the floor. He is wearied and exhausted by the labors of the day; ho  has talked about the tariff since the  dawn was cold and gray; he has lost  eight games of checkers, for his luck  today was mean, and that luck was  still against him when he -sucked the  slot machine; so his nerves are under  tension, and his brow is dark with  care, and the burdens laid upon; him  seem too great for him to bear. Stop  the clock, for it annoys him; throttle  that canary bird; take the baby to the  cellar, where its howling won't be  heard; you must speak in whispers,  children, for your father's tired and  Bore, and he seems to think the ceiling is some kind of cuspidor. Oh, he's  broken down and beaten by tbe long  and busy day; he's - been sitting in  the feeds tore on a bale of prairie hay  telling how the hungry grafters have  the country by the throat, how tbe  tariff on dried apples robs the poor  man of his coat, how this nasty polar  rumpus might be settled once for all  ���and his feet are on the table, and  his back's against the wall; let him  find his home a quiet and a heart-  consoling nest, for the father's worn,  and weary, and his spirit longs for  rest. WALT MASON.  New Model Automobile  To those interested in motor cars,  the announcement that shortly a new  model will make its appearance on  our streets in , the already famous  "Chevrolet Four-Ninety," is causing  no small amount of interest and favorable comment.  These cars are far in advance of any-  thing that haB heretofore been placed  on the market at a price below $1,000.  Their equipment consists of all the  leading features of the higher priced  cars, such as Mohair tailored top, envelope and side curtains, electric horn,  clear vision ventilating wind shield,  speedometer, electric starting and  lighting system, ammeter and license  brackets, and other features that go  to make up a splendid car. ���  The car is built on beautiful streamlines, has a cone clutch and three-  speed transmission of the selective  type. The motor is of the "valve-in-  head" type, which in itself is a feature  that places it on a level with the best  cars on the road.  The "Chevrolet" is manufactured in  Canada and is controlled entirely by  Canadian capital at Oshawa. Ont.  Several of these cars have already  been purchased by local residents who  are now anxiously awaiting their delivery and their advent into the auto  world about this district is awaited  with keen interest.  This new model is being introduced  Into Kelowna through the Burbank  Motor Company from whom any information may be obtained. The  company, while giving considerable of  their time to to this,new car will,  at the same time continue to take  care of all comers, as in the past and  any work of renewals desired will be  available the same as before.  Within a few days it is hoped that  one or more of these carB will arrive  in the city, when the company invites  anyone interested to call and see for  themselves what the car really is.  The price of this up-to-date car laid  down in Kelowna is only $775.00.  Further details may be found on another page in this issue.

Trodqction aiviThrift  " 'TpO win the war with the decisiveness which will ensure lasting peace, the Empire  ���*��� will require to put forth its full collective power in men and in money. From  this viewpoint it is our true policy to augment our financial strength by multiplying our  productive exertions and by exercising rigid economy, which reduces to the minimum  all expenditures upon luxuries and non-essentials. Only in this way shall we be able  to make good the loss caused by the withdrawal of so many of our workers from industrial activities, repair the wastage of the war, and find the funds for ita continuance. It  cannot be too frequently or too earnestly impressed upon our people that the heaviest  burdens of the conflict still lie before us, and that industry arid thrift are, for those  who remain at home, supreme patriotic duties upon whose faithful fulfilment  our success, and consequently our national safety, may ultimately depend."���  SIR THOMAS WHITE, Minuter of Finance.  PRODUCE MORE, SAVE MORE.  MAKE LABOUR EFFICIENT.  SAVE MATERIALS FROM WASTE.  SPEND MONEY WISELY.  LET US PRODUCE AND SAVE���  The war is now turning on a contest of all forces  and resources���men, munitions, food, money. The  call to all is to produce more and more. It may be  necessary to work harder. The place of those who  enlist must be taken by those at home, men and  women, old and young. The more we produce the  more we can save. Produce more on the farms and  in the gardens.   Save more and help to win the war.  LET US NOT WASTE OUR LABOUR���  In this war-time all labour should be directly productive or should be assisting in production. Make it  as efficient as possible. If your labour is on something  that can be postponed, put it off till after the war and  make your labour tell now. Making war is the first  business of all Canadians. Efficiency in labour is as  important as efficiency in fighting.  LET US NOT WASTE MATERIALS���  Begin at home. The larger portion of salaries  and wages is spent on the home���food, fuel, light,  clothing. Are any of these things being wasted T  S20.00 a year saved from waste in every home in  Canada will more than pay thc interest on a war debt  of $500,000,000.  LET US SPEND OUR MONEY   WISELY���  Are you spending your money to the best advantage T What do you think of extravagance in war  time? Tens of thousands of Canadians are daily  risking their lives for us at home. Is it not our duty  to be careful and economical ? Canadian dollars are  an important part of the war equipment. Make them  tell. Have a War Savings Account. Buy a War  Bond.

THEY ARE REALLY VERY NICE AND YOU  WOULD  SURELY  ENJOY  EATING  THEM  Post Toasties are made from Pearly White  Indian Corn which is fully cooked, slightly  salted and sweetened, rolled into delicate  flakes and toasted to a crisp golden brown  without being touched by the hand. You  can notice the distinguishing little "puffs " on  each flake, and unlike some other corn flakes  they do not " mush down " when cream or  milk is poured on them but retain their appetizing, crispy firmness. Post Toasties are  carefully selected, skilfully cooked, delicately  seasoned and toasted.  ASK FOR "THE NEW POST TOASTIES1'  TWO PACKAGES FOR   25c .  The McKenzie Co., Lcl.
