NO. 36  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, JULY 25, 1918.���4 PAGES  $1 JO Per Annum  Have Till Sept 1st  te Avoid Tax Sale  New Pound By-Law Needed to  Conform with Municipal Act  The meeting oi the city council  held Monday evening was brief  and confined chiefly to matters of  a routine nature. The principal  business waa the fixing of the date  of a tax sale for the current year  for Oct. 12th, and September 1st  as the last day upon which delinquent rate payer* might pay taxe*  lea* costs and expense*.  It was arranged to repeal the  original Pound Bv-Lsw and amendments and pass a new by-law  drawn up in conformity with the  present provisions of the Municipal  Act.   This was read a first time.  A temporary loan by-law was  alao introduced to obtain funds  from the Bank of Montreal.  A special meeting of the council  was held Wednesday evening for  the purpose of advancing the formalities connected with the passing  of these by-laws.  Aid. Duggan reported that R. A.  Murphy who had contracted to  supply 100 cords of wood for the  power house was unable to do so,  necessitating calling for further  tenders, and it was arranged that  this be done.  Jap in Trouble Over  Horse  A Jap from Westbank was in  the police-court Tuesday on a  charge of horse-stealing. This  charge was afterwards altered to  one of "unlawfully appropriating"  of which he was found guilty and  fined $50 and costs.  It appears he had found a horse  loose upon the range over the  other side of the lake and had  taken possession of it and held it  for a considerable time for his  own use.  The horse in question was one  belonging to Hughes Bros., of Kelowna, and had had a somewhat  adventurous career. Soon after  arriving in Kelowna it had shaken  off restraint, performing the somewhat unusual feat of swimming  the lake. Arriving safely on the  other side it settled down to a life  of freedom on the range, until it  was captured by the Jap and put  to work.  Lend Money to Prevent  Slaughter of Cattle  Members of the Manitoba legislature have endorsed the plan previously arranged by the government to advance certain sums of  money tp resident farmers for the  purchase of breeding heifers. The  object of this move is to prevent  exportation and slaughter of young  breeding stock which is now taking  place owing to the great shoitage  of feed in certain districts of the  province, and also in some portions of the provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta.  The action which the government through the department of  agriculture already has taken with  regard to the harvesting and stacking of hay was also approved.  Government buyers will purchase the needed stock in the Winnipeg stockyard which is now being flooded with breeding cattle  from the west.  Miss Coxworth was a passenger  to Victoria yesterday.  ��� Mr. C. Maitland left yesterday  on a visit to the coast.  Russell Leckie left Wednesday  on a holiday trip to San Francisco.  Mrs. Alec. Morrison and family  left this morning to join Mr. Morrison at Gull Lake, Sask.  Mr. H. Chesbro, formerly of the  provincial horticultural branch.and  lately ih charge of an orchard near  Vernon, has returned to Kelowna.  Provincial Game Laws  May Be Changed  Commission will Hear Suggestions from Sportsmen of  the Province  A number of important changes  in the game laws of the province  will be made shortly if the reconv  mendations of the various angling  and game associations of the pro  vince are approved by the govern  ment game commission, which will  hold its first regular meeting at  Victoria, on July 29, 30 and 31  One important recommendation  which appears to meet with general approval and which, if adopted  will mean a betterment in shooting^  conditions on the mainland, provides for uniform game seasons.  Heretofore the season has opened  around Chilliwack fifteen days earlier than on the lower mainland  and it has been recommended  that the season open and close at  the same time in both districts. In  the past the duok shooting season  has opened on September 1st and  closed on February 15. It is now  proposed to open the season on  October I, closing on February I.  A bag limit of 25 per day for each  hunter is also recommended, with  the 250 limit for the season remaining the same.  Another recommendation provides for opening and closing of  deer and grouse season on the  same date, Sept. 15 or Oct. I, the  date to be definitely fixed by the  commissioners at their approaching meeting. In the upper country  it has been proposed that the duck  shooting season shall open around  Kamloops and the Cariboo on  September I, but that the season  be closed for prairie chicken. In  the north, where there has been a  closed season for grouse it is proposed to have an open season,  with a small bag limit.  The commissioners believe that  on account of the different climatic  conditions in various parts of the  province that districts should be  created and the laws arranged to  govern accordingly. The northern  section includes all north of the  Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, the  interior district will include all  south of the G.T.P. and east of  the Cascades, and the coast district to include Vancouver Island  and all west ot the Cascades. The  public.sessions at the coming conference of the game commission  will probably be attended by representatives from various parts of  the province who are interested in  the game situation and who are  anxious to co-operate with the  officials in their work.  Foch's Strategy Places Army oi  Crown Prince in Dangerous Corner  Germans Making Frantic Efforts to Fight Way Clear of  Tighter Grip on Soissons-Rheims Salient  New Food Order  Concerns Householders  Must Buy Flour Substitutes  Amounting to 25 per  cent, of Purchase  Mr. Ed. Gray, of Okanagan Mission left yesterday for Victoria, on  a visit to his brother Robert, who  has lately been invalided home to  the military convalescent hospital,  Esquimalt. This gallant soldier has  had an adventurous and distin-  guised career since leaving Kelowna some three years ago to go  overseas with the 72nd Seaforth  Highlanders. With that famous  regiment he fought in many engagements with such zeal as to  win for himself the coveted military  medal. He was wounded at Vimy  ridge, resulting unfortunately in  the loss of his left leg, which has  kept him confined to hospital for  a considerable time. Lately he  has been decorated by the Russian  government in recognition of ser  vices rendered.  Mrs. (Dr.) A. J. Gordon of Vancouver is a present on a visit to Dr.  and Mrs. Telford.  A brush fire back of Peachland  has been causing some trouble  during the past week.  Herbert Hoover, United States  food administrator, told the Allied  food controllers in London that the  corner in food production and  supply has been turned. There is  no longer anything to tear from the  German U-boats, he declared. In  his address,'delivered at the Mansion House, he said: "The submarine menace no longer threatens  the food supply. We have turned  ths corner at last."  The War situation has developed  considerable interest during the  past week, and news has been  more favorable than for many  months past��Following the breakdown of the German offensive, and  the French-American counter blow  in the neighbourhood of Soisons  and Chateau-Thierry, the tables  have been almost completely turned upon the enemy, who is now  struggling to withdraw his forces  Iron a perilous situation. Despatches from the front declare  that the allies' bombardment from  both sides of the Rheims-Soissons  pocket leaves the Germana only a  seventeen - mile passage for the  withdrawal of their forces.  For a time news showed the retreat, to be so precipitate as to  almost become a rout, but bv  heavy rear-guard fighting and the  hastening of reserve troops for the  Crown Prince's help fron further  north, the enemy has managed to  stave off disaster so tar.  The retreat was first in the direction of Fere-en-Tardenois, but the  allied aviators have set fire to this  place and Fismes, points of enemy  concentration, dropping more than  32,000 pounds of bombs on these  two cities The allies are still progressing at several points, while  the Germans are withdrawing towards Vesle.  The German retreat north from  the Marne was illuminated by  burning villages, the sky being illuminated from horizon to horizon  by blazing towns and smmunition  dumps. The Americans are believed to have captured Buzancy,  four miles below Soissons, and  east of the Soissons-Chateau-Thier-  ry highway. The French are reported to ba holding OuIch)-lc  Chateau.  The enemy's communications  ���re being seriously threatened and  actually cut off at several points.  Great numbers of prisoners and  vast piles of stores are reported to  have been captured, though no  clear details as to the result of the  lighting have come to hand.  News from the front will be  eagerly watched during the next  few days it being generally understood that vast consequences hang  upon the result of the next few  days' fighting. Should Foch's  squeezing tactics succeed in cutting off the army of the Crown  Prince or greatly reducing its  effectiveness, the effect on the war  ���situation would be tremendous.  German newspapers are already  beginning to admit their failure  and to prepare the country for  news of defeat. Peace proposals  are in the air again, and it is said  that Germany is approaching Spain  to act as mediator.  Latest reports state that the Germans have countermanded their  retreat orders and are endeavoring to rush in troops to enable  them to still make a stand in the  Soisson-Rheims sector.  Commission Enquires  Into Steamship Trouble  Session of Board Conducted  Monday in Vancouver  The roval commission appointed  to inquire into the matter of wages  of masters and mates on western  steamships and also as to the status of the Merchant Service Guild  which lately threatened a strike  which would have affected the  boat service on the Okanagan lake,  began its sessions at Vancouver  Monday.  The evidence of Andrew Good-  lad, secretary of the Guild sketched the progress of the trouble  from the issuing by the Guild on  April 19th, of a new scale of wages  and working conditions and sent  it to the owners. The latter declared they were willing to consider the question of wages but  refused to recognize the Guild or  to deal through it with the men.  On May 23, a ballot or plebiscite was taken among the members of the guild on two questions  presented, One asked if the members preferred dealing direct with  their employers, the other gave  instructions to the' guild to act for  each member. The result of this  vote was that 99 per cent, of the  membership voted for the guild to  act for it. The guild then, after  finding that it could not persuade  the owners to deal through it, asked the government to appoint a  board of conciliation.  Mr. Goodlad then went on and  told of the final decision of the  guild to strike unless the royal  commission was appointed. The  consequence of this decision was  that the present board comprising  W. E. Burns, chairman; E. A.  James for the owners, and J. H.  McVety for the guild was appointed.  The United State* armored  cruiser San Diego, 13,680 tons, waa  torpedoed by a German submarine  ten miles off Fire Island, New  York, on Friday. There appears  to have been no loss of life.  Ready Pluck Prevented  Drowning Accident  Three in Trouble at Dangerous  Part of Beach  A party of visitors in town had  an unpleasant experience Saturday  evening in the water near the ferry  wharf, which might have ended  fatally but for the ready and plucky  assistance of Earl Raymer.  The beach at this point slopes  off very suddenly a few feet out  info deep water, a fact of which  strangers are likely to be unaware.  The party were sitting along the  promenade enjoying the pleasant  evening while the children paddled in the water. Suddenly one  of the youngsters got out of his  depth and went under. The lady  of the party noticing his danger  rushed into the water and managed  to seize him. In their struggles,  however, the treacherous sand  gave way beneath her feet and  she too slipped into deep water.  Her husband by this time was in  the water endeavoring to rrach  them, and he, too, was in danger  of being dragged in, when Earl  Raymer pluckily dived in and after some effort managed to get the  three of them ashore.  It has been suggested lhat a  warning be placed in a conspicuous  place so that strangers would be  msde aware of the dangerous nature of the shore to all but good  swimmers along the front of the  promenade. There are plenty of  shallow and safe bathing places  for children, for instance on the  south aide of the grandstand, but  between the pavilion and the wharf  the beach shelves off very suddenly into deep water and non-swimmers are very Habit to lose their  foothold if they approach too near  the edge of this sandy shelf.  Twenty sheep are required to  provide sufficient wool to keep one  soldier clothed. In Canada there  are less than 5i sheep per soldier.  Wool is at a record price, as is also  mutton. The Canada Food Board  urges greater production of sheep  ���nd municipal co-operation.  A new Food Control order is  one of which all housewives must  take careful nete, especially ss it is  already in force. It relates to the  purchasing of flour substitutes, for  the purpose of economizing in  wheat consumption. The order,  which is dated June 27th and came  into force July 15th, makes it  obligatory upon ail purchasers of  standard flour, to obtain at the  same time substitutes, such as rye  flour, corn meal, bran, oatmeal,  tolled oats, etc., in the proportion  of one pound to four pounds flour.  No dealer is allowed to aell flour  except upon these conditions. This  proportion applies to all points  west of Port Arthur. East of there  double the amount of substitutes  must be purchssed.  Dealers aie placed under a heavy  penalty for violation of this order,  and will be liable to a fine not exceeding $1000 and not less than  $100, or to imprisonment for a  period of three months, or to both  fine and inprisonment.  High  alien Resells  Vancouver Pupil Wins Highest Marks (877) for Province  Germany Planned Invasion of Canada  That Teuton conspirators planned even after America's entrance  into the war to use German reservists to invade Canada and Mexico  is indicated in the seized correspondence of Frederick von Strensh  who when arrested was described  ss a former protege of Biamarck.  To-day he is described as a relative of the German emperor.  The objects of the proposed invasions, according to the authorities, were to hamper the despatch  of Canadian troops abroad and to  join armed Mexicans for the purpose of making an attack upon  the United States.  In these letters were sentences  indicsting that between November  1915 and April 20, 1917, plots  were in existence for 25,000 German reservists to cross from Buffalo to Btidgeburg, Ont., and for 100  Germans to enter Mexico at a  point along the Rio Grande.  The seized correspondence also  disclosed that a German, assuming  a Russian alias and disguise, had  entered the employ of the Curtiss  aviation plant. The spy is now  being watched by U.S. officials.  The results of the Jane High  School examinations conducted by  the provincial department of  education nave been announced  as follows: all the students writing  in Kelowna obtained the required  500 marks but three students in the  Matriculation class must write  supplementary examinations in one  or more subjects, either this fall or  next June to obtain complete  Matriculation standing.

Postman's Strike is  Called Off  The secretary of the Letter Carriers' Association called off the  Dominion wide mail strike yesterday. It is understood that the  government has met the demands  of the men. This is supported by  an official statement from the departmental offices that the government hss decided to "go a long  way towards meeting the requests  of the postal employees."  Repairs which the Germsns  made to the mole and locks at  Zeebrugge have again been destroyed by allied airmen. Two  torpedo-boats have been sunk in  the harbour and the canal remains  closed. The German observation  tower at Lisseweghe was also hit  by the airmen. ���  The giant White Star liner the  ' Justicia" was sent to the bottom  off the Irish coast last Saturday  morning after a running fight with  eight German submarines, which  lasted upwards of twenty four  hours. Eleven members of the  crew but no passengers lost their  lives. No less than ten torpedoes  were fired at the huge ship, eight  striking her, the last two penetrating the engine-room and forehold,  The "Justicia" sank slowly allowing plenty of time tor the transfer  of passengers and crew to a tug.  British Ready For  Delayed Offensive  Prince Rupprecht is Awaiting  Signal from Higher Up  The British are watchfully waiting for Prince Rupprecht's prepared offensive. Great masses of  German storm troops are ready.  Plans prepared weeks ago only  wait the signal from the German  high command. A huge concentration of artillery ia also ready.  The airdiomes are crowded with  machines. Rupprecht is simply  awriting the high command's signal  which doubtless awaits developments on the crown prince's front.  It is believed Rupprecht has actually set the date several times. The  last wss to follow the expected  success on the Champagne front,  but delay became necessaiy. His  army group, however, is intact,  only a few reserves have been  drawn into the Champagne. It is  absolutely certain that recent events  have so lessened the confidence of  both the army and the people in  Ludendorff and Hindenburg that  some dazzling strokes are needed  ie the quickest possible time. But  with barely ordinary luck the Allies  should turn developments favorably. Undoubtedly much heavy  fighting is ahead. The Allies probably have as many or more troopa  than Germ, ny in strategic positions.  The Allies sre not out of the wood,  but sre certainly warranted in  breathing easier.

Airplane to Detect  Forest Fires  The department of lands is to  negotiate for the lease of a hydroaeroplane for a series of tests in  the way of a forest patrol in the  air. Should the ezperimenls prove  satisfactory the department will  arrange to have an aeroplane pat-  rol nest year. It will not have to  go outside of the service for aviators  as a considerable number of the  forestry staff have been serving in  the Royal Flying Corps. It is believed that by means of aeroplanes  a verv much more effective scouting system for fire outbreaks can  be maintained than by launch and  horseback as at present. With the  large shoreline and network of  inland lakes it is believed that  hydroplanes will have convenient  landing places in abundance. Hon.  T. D. Pattullo, who has been interested in the possibility of an aeroplane service for his department,  is expecting to make a trip aloft  himself during the course of the  experimental trips.

Mantle pointed out  at a recent council meeting the  need of some adtquate public  hall in Kelowna there has been  a revival of discussion of this burning subject and there is no doubt  about the existence of a strong  feeling in most people's minds that  "something should be done." Had  the city possessed other similar  buildings at the time of the fire  which destroyed the Opera House  the loss would not have been so  great. But alas I it was the only  one, and its loss was nothing short  of a public disaster. It is to be  feared that Kelowna never fully  realized the debt it owed to the  late Mr. Raymer for his enterprise  in putting up that building���" You  never miss the water till. the well  runs dry I"  Of course, it is almost a sacrilege to speak of amusement with  the war on, but it is impossible to  live without relaxation of some  sort occasionally. Even in the trenches the boys will have their fun  and it is a safe bet that these same  boys would not be any more plea-  sed to learn that the folks they  had left behind were to be driven  crazy by sheer dulness and lack of  recreation. Understand, this is not  meant to excuse extravagant plea-  sure-seeking in war time. But in  avoiding this there is no need to  drop into sheer inanition.  Besides, the need nf a public  hall i* not merely a question of  amusement. We have the "movies" for that, und the many outdoor  sport* which are better for young  and old than indoor shows at this  time of the year anyhow. There  is an educational side to the thing,  Without a proper public gathering  place a community the size of this  is almost as badly off as an old-  world village without its town  pump.  This whole question of recreation  and amusement for young and old  but especially for the young, is  one which Kelowna and other  places like it will have to face in  the near future. Boys and girls  are growing up around us with  natural thirst for something better  than parading the streets and more  exciting than weeding gardens or  raising pigs. They are growing up  like plants in an impoverished soil  ���but what's the good of preaching;  everybody knows it. Who is go.  ing to get busy and find a solution ?  A British air raid on the Schles  wig-Holstein coast resulted in the  destruction of a great hangar and  two Zeppelins therein. Schelswjg  is 350 miles from the nearest Allied  point.  Garden peas grown from Belgian seed brought to this country  fifty years ago are being shown by  Mrs, McAllister, of Milner, B. C.  These peas were brought over by  Belgian lad) who has recently died  and were found among her possessions after her demise. Mrs. McAllister planted a few as an experi  ment and every one of them germinated. The seed is being saved  by Mrs. McAllister and these Belgian peas will be perpetuated in the  district.  The department of education  has announced that the provincial  normal school at Victoria will open  for the next session on September  3, 1918. The students attending  Normal from all points east of  Hope on lhe main line of lie  C.P.R. must, bv regulation, attend  Victoria.  The newspapers are giving prominence to a report of a new type  of British airplane which, having  been tested at lhe front with the  greatest success, is about to be employed in large numbers. It is said  not one of these wonder machines  has been downed.  Prince Arthur of Connaught who  arrived in Victoria Monday, is to  apend three days on Vancouver  Island in the course of which he  will inspect the different military  establishments and visit all the  military convalescent hospital*.  To-day he is going on to Vancouver  to make an inspection there.  Brigadier-Genrral R. J. Gwynne,  director general of mobilization, is  to meet the prince as the personal  representative of the Dominion  government. He will accompany  him acroBS Canada. Prince Arthur  ia also to be met by Sir Frank Barnard, the lieutenant-governor:  Major-General R. G. E. Leckie, Hon  J. W. DeB. Farris, acting premier,  and a militaiy guard of honor.

Grent, Calgary.  Green apples are arriving from  Yakima, Okanagan, B. C��� and the  Franer Valley. The market is hungry for pie stuff and these are selling at a good price. The first box  arriving from B. C. sold at $4.00.  Armstrong celery is coming in considerable volume and sells at 15c.  lb. wholesale. The chief vegetable  in demand is the spud.  The management of the Dominion Express Co. both in B. C. and  Alberta have been very energetic  during the paat week instructing  their messenger loadeis and unloaded, the correct method in  handling perishable and tender  fruit. Fruit is now arriving without  the pungent odor formerly noticed  when the ventilation en route was  not so rigidly looked after. Besides  the handling of the crates is greatly itiproved. The shortage of  labor and continuous change of  workmen makes it an onerous task  for the management to keep the  service efficient. Last week's campaign by Dominion Express officers  will save the shippers and buyers  considerable money, give consumers a better impression of B. C.  fruit, and enlarge the express shipments.  B. C. has now control of the  cherry market, and some fine Bings  and Lamberts are coming in from  there. The recent rains caused  many ripe fruit to split and the  warm spell caused the juice to leak  from the split and n ould in it. The  loss is not as great as appearances  would indicate, and if picked over  a great portion would grade No. I.  However, wholesale merchants  cannot pick fruit over at, peak of  season, and as a result this off condition stuff is jobbed. The cherry  market has recovered and good  prices are again obtaining. Some  nervous shippers who have consigned their goods to retail merchants  and public markets are the only  'bears." The public market on the  prairie is the slaughter house lor  B. C. f.'uit. Job lots are either  peddled or sold on the public  market, and good fruit consigned  to the public market meets with  this competition. The day may  come when public markets on the  prairie will handle choice' fruit  entirely, but it is not in sight yet.  B. C. shippers who receive a big  price for their first early fruit on  Coast markets are often disappointed in their returns for same goods  sold on the prairies. The conditions are altogether different in the  two points, The prairie draws its  supplies from many early points in  the U. S. and eaily varieties are  generally small and poor in quality  by comparison with later sorts. Our  early varieties come into competition with later and better varieties  from earlier places. Some parts of  Oregon and Washington will have  reached the peak of the season  when ours is just beginning They  ship largely to Calgary and our  supply of early inferior varieties ia  entirely discounted by them Late  stuff always finds a good market,  at a good price, when all competitive stuff is off the market and  B. C. has the field to herself with  the best quality of goods. B. C.  growers would be well advised to  grow late stuff rather than early for  the prairie market, in many cases,  and never early varieties of inferior  size and appearance.

July 23, 1918  There will be a meeting at the  scoutmaster's office on Saturday of  this week, the 27th instant, at 7.30  p.m., of Patrol Leaders and  seconds, at which a full attendance  is required. We wish to ascertain  what entries we shall be able to  put in for the land and water sport*  on Regatta day. A preliminary  programme will be out before this  column appears, and we should  like all leaders to be able to aay  what entries can be made from  their patrols.  There will be a special prize  given to the scout who wins the  the greatest number of points during the day.  ��� a  a  Il was with a deep sense of regret  and personal loss that we learned  of the death in action of our great  friend, Mr. E. C. Mclntyre. Mr.  Mclntyre was scoulmaster of the  Rossland Troop at the time it won  lhe Lieutenant-Governor's Shield,  it being the first troop to win it, for  the season 1911-12. He was one  of the most courteous and obliging  officials in his daily work we have  ever had in Kelowna and hia cheery  smile will not soon be forgotten.  He always seemed to see "the  silver lining through the dark cloud  shining." To Mra. Mclntyre we  express our very deep sympathy  ���      ���  a  We are very glad now to be able  to say that it has been definitely  decided to hold a two-day conference of Okanagan Valley scout  officers and patrol leaders at either  Penticton Summerland or Kelowna  The time has not yet been definitely settled, but we expect that it will  be during the week between Christ-  mas and the New Year. Provincial Headquarters are going to pay  for the transportation of all delegates and they will be billeted  round different homes at the town  where the conference ia held. We  have frequently stated in this  column what a benefit a good  conference of this sort could be,  and the time ia not too soon to  make preparations for the coming  one right away.  J. A.

Godfrey Groves were the guests of the  Summerland Troop on Saturday  last, the former with Scsutmaater  Zimmerman and the latter with  P.-L. J. Gayton, and motored down  on Sunday with the whole of the  Summerland troop to visit the  Penticton Troop in camp at Okanagan Falls, The Penticton scouts  were some 25 strong with the  Commissioner, Scoutmaster Atkinson and Mr. Smith, who was in  charge of the cooking.  It is a very beautiful drive from  Penticton to the Falls and the  camp is very p.ettily situated at  the south end of Dog Lake and a  short distance from the falls of  Okanagan River. There were four  patrol tents, headquarters and the  cook tent. One great advantage  they had over our own camp was  a wharf with a spring board.  We arrived in camp just before  tent inspection by the commission,  er, after which a bathing parade  was enjoyed very much by everyone. P.-L. Alec Smith of the Summerland Beavers experimented  with a new dive which he may be  persuaded to repeat at our regatta.  It takes two others though to help  him with this spectacular feat. After bathing parade everyone did  their best to consume all the available grub in camp after which compulsory rest was certainly appreciated. Later in the afternoon  camp aervice was held by the  commissioner, followed by another  bathing parade, followed again by  supper. The guests and visiting  scouts left for home soon after. It  was a most enjoyable day for all  concerned, and we wish to thank  Mr. Atkinson and his scouts as  well as Mr. Zii merman and his  scouts for their kind hospitality.  We believe the proper scout spirit  of brotherhood is being crested by  this intermingling of the scouts  from different troops, and may the  good work continue.  There will be a special meeting  of the Cubs at the cub room on  Friday evening, at 7.30, to make  arrangements for camp. The datea  are now definitely fixed-August  2nd to the 8th, and all Cubs will  be expected to attend the meeting  to get orders and instruction*.

Bruce Payne, of Granbv,  Que., a well-known eastern cigar  manufacturer and a purchaser in  the past of much of our local output has been in town this week  looking over conditions here. He  has every confidence in the ability  of this district to produce under  careful growing methods a leaf  which wili bear comparison with  any of the older districts. Already,  he states, the local product has  succeeded, in spile of conservatism  and prejudice on the part of manufacturers, in making a place for it- .  self and establishing a demand and  he feels sure of the ability of his  firm to market from two to five  hundred acres of crop each vear  from Kelowna. During the week  he paid a visit to the thirty acres  on the Dickson ranch being grown  by Mr. L. Holman, and which is  reported to be in fine condition.  Col.

Two  mixed crews have also been formed and from past experience we  know that some of our local ladies  can put up a good fight for the  cup. Crews for the racing shells  are also in training and there will  be some good races in this line.  The Athletic Association crew got  together to compete with the fire  brigade at the regatta, took their  trial run on Monday evening, under the able captaincy of Mr. W.  M. Crawford, whose skilful acrobatic feats several times prevented  the capsizing of the canoe. There  are are a number of prettv husky  fellows, however, in the crew nnd  with consistent training should put  up a good race.  ���stkTxaonxtyjXiVX^^  TERMS CASH  J. C.

After a long and somewhat heated  discussion it was finally decided to  dispense with dancing at future  meetings. Miss A. McDonald and  Earle Hardie were nominated to  act as a programme committee.  Owing to the lateness of the hour  the literary programme was omitted. The meeting then adjourned   0   Look For Increase in  Freight Rates  There is every likelihood of a  considerable increase in freight  rales in Canada being ordered by  the Railway commission, as a re  suit of the McAdoo schedule of  railwav workers' wages having  been advanced. Announcement  to this effect may be expected  shortly. It is said that the increase  may be as high as 25 per cent, on  existing tariffs, despite the 15 per  cent already granted during the  present year. Although the probability of a general strike of the  shopmen has been averted, the  government in applying the McAdoo schedule to all railway employees, organized and otherwise,  has placed an additional burden  on the railways, and this it is stated, must be balanced bv a considerable increase in rates.
