NOVEMBER 14, 1918.���4 PAGES  Council Meets Amid  Celebration Noise  Health Committee  Makes  Report  on Influenza Epidemic  To the accompaniment of the  joyful music of the celebration  going on out in the street Monday  the city council held ita regular  fortnightly meeting with a small  attendance.  The principal.business was concerned with the work of the Emergency Health Committee, which  had charge of the fight against the  influenza. Aid. W. Lloyd-Jones  made a report on what had, been  done in that connection. Three  hqspitals had been opened, one in  the High school, one fur Chinese  in the Lum Lock building, and for  Japanese on Harvey A ve. It was  stated that the supplies for these  hospitals had been mostly donated, but aome had to be purchased.  They were under the supervision  of the Emergency Committee, acting with the Health committee of  the city.  A resolution was passed authorizing the Health, committee to take'  any necessary action to cope with  the epidemic, and make necessary  expenditures.  The matter of the city subscribing to the Victory Loan was broached by, the Mayor, but it was pointed out by Aid. Rattenbury that the  city's sinking fund would not permit of any withdrawals at present,  as tax payn ents did not come [in  until later in the year.  It was agreed, however, that the  city should accept Victory Bonds  as payment for arrears of taxes.  L superintendent McNabb  [.the council for use of  bore land belonging to the  the purpose of constructing  .a team track with an approach  from Water street. It was decided  that if the conditions were favorable the city would consider leasing the land to the company.  The secretary of the Hospital  wrote asking for a wider entrance  to the Hospital grounds, and for a  better lighting service at the gate.  The monthly police report showed a total of six cases, with $47 00  collected in fines.  The city clerk, Mr. G. G. Dunn,  who had been on sick- leave for  some time was present, and received a hearty welcome back to  his accustomed place.  Senior grade pupils should read  the newspapers very carefully these  days. You should read to your  parents and ask questions about  things vou do not understand. The  map of Europe should be always  at hand so that you can consult it.  Try to get some idea of the battle-  front at the time of the signing, of  the armistice, Trace the course of  the Rhine noting the chiel cities on  ita banks or near it and the countries through which it flows.  In history you should read the  Stuart period. Compare Charles  the First and the Kaiser of Germany.  What caused their fall ?  Practise grammatical analysis of  the five sentences on page 91 of  your grammar text-book. Do the  analysis on loose-leaf sheets so lhat  your work may be handed in when  school re-opens.  In arithmetic review lumber  measure and do all the sums on  pnge 176.  Read everything about microbes  in your "How to Be Healthy" Now  is the time to study them.  In thc coming years of reconstruction, the people will have more  and more to say about the sort of  training their children are to receive.  But, if increase of conscious democratic power is not accompanied  by a deepening of thought and a  broadening of outlook, our education rl systems will be at the mercv  of noisy faddist and shallow minded self-advisers. If the people are  to lead they must prepare themselves for leadership, else democracy will fail as miserably as autocracy has. The people muat at the  very least qualify themselves to  express intelligent opinions about  the policies of their ehosen leaders.  Kelowna Expects to  Win the Honor Flag  Will Go Over the Top Before Saturday when Campaign Closes  The Victory Bond campaign is  nearing its end, and although Kelowna has still abou' $25,000 to  gather in, there seems to be no  doubt that the grade will be made.  $200,000 is the mark set, and up  last night $175,050 had been handed in to headquarters. The canvassers are bent on reaching that  quota and going something beyond  it too. Get busy and help them to  hoist the Honor Flag before the  campaign ends.  Number of "Flu"  Cases Diminishing  Six Orientals  Have  Died During  the Week Making Total Death  Roll of Ten  After a rather sharp outbreak  in Kelowna of the influenza epidemic which has run the total  number of reported cases up to  150, the trouble is believed to be  again on thc wane. Only a very  few new cases have broken out  during the past few days, and there  are no really critical cases under  treatment. Six deaths have occurred during the week, bringing the  total death, roll up to ten. Eight of  these were Chinamen, one a Hindoo, and one a Jap.  Three emergency hospitals have  been opened altogether to accommodate the patients. The one ih  the High School for white people  has already been mentioned. In  addition the old Lum Lock building on Ellis street was fitted up for  the Chinamen, with Principal Gordon in chnrje. He was obliged to  reliuquish this duty, however, owing to Mrs. Gordon developing the  disease, and the ven. Archdeacon  Greene heroically took his place  until things had improved sufficiently to release him. A hospital  for the Japanese was started under  the management of Mr. K. Iwashita in Harvey avenue, and has done  good Tork.  The precautionary measures are  still in force, and if the public continue to take care, the medical  health officer states, the danger  will soon be over.  Mr. and Mrs. Scott Blackwood,  of Westbank, received news last  week of the death, at Riverhursr,  Sask., of their only son Francis  Melvyrn Blackwood, at the age of  32. Deceased was manager of the  Bank of Commerce at that point  With this end in view I propose to  give in this column expressions of  opinion on educational matters by  leading educationists,  This week's quotation is from  "Problems of To-morrow" by an  English writer���Dr. P. T. Forsyth.  "Early specialisation is a wasteful mistake. It is instruction in a  hurry. All specialisation, if it is to  be fruitful, requires a certain amount  of real education to enable the  mind to take advantage of it. Let  me illustrate. When technical  schools were set up in Germany  the thing was done with the national thoroughness, and the youths  were shot out into their specialized  studies at a very early age. But it  was soon found, that there had not  been bred in them enough general  intelligence to take advantage of  the special facilities ; so several  steps had to be retraced, and the  period of general education prolonged. By the time the Germans  had discovered this, however, we  had become alarmed at their industrial superiority and we had  begun to imitate them and their  initial mistake. We set up technical schools too. But we have had  to make the same discovery and  the same retreat. Let us realize  that it takes a good deal of general  culture to make a proper and  fertile use of technical facilities,  and that premature specialisation  defeats its own end, like feeding  infants on lobster .and pickles I  Kelowna Celebrates  Peace in Wild  Burst of Joy  Work Abandoned for Day Citizens  Give Themselves Up to Riotous  Enjoyment  News that Germany had indeed  signed the armistice terms, and her  own death warrant as a fighting  force, came to Kelowna by seven  o'clock Monday morning. People  were cautious, however, after last  Thursday's false alarm, and the  whistles did not begin to announce  the glad news until about 9 o'clock.  When the truth at length began to  penetrate the effect was electrical.  Work was dropped with one accord  and sober citizens began to cut  loose like a school dismissed. The  first thought was to get some decorations out, and soon everything  in the natur��. of a flag, or {which  bore even the national colors was  bought up. Patriotic people who  wanted to run up a flag the size of  a bed sheet could get nothing more  imposing than a little printed  Union Jack on a paper napkin.  The outburst was entirely spontaneous. No preparation had been  made for a celebration, and all  that could be done was to commandeer everything capable of  producing noise, and produce.  Fireworks were soon gone, bul  coal-oil cans remained. A hastily  organized "band" paraded the  street, and in short "joy was un-  confined."  Towards afternoon a plan was  formed to organize a real celebration and a procession was announced for 2.30.  The convenient roof of the  "Courier" office was utilized as a  platform for the preliminary ceremonies, and the Mayor, Mr. J. W.  Jones, M.P.P., and the local clergy  addressed the crowd below.  The ven. Archdeacon Greene  led with prayers of thankfulness  for victories won and the Doxology  was sung. '��� Little was heard of the  speeches except by those close by,  but it was sufficient that they were  punctuated by deafening cheering  and waving of flags.  Mr. J. W. Jones spoke of the  events which had led up to the  great finish of the war, and read  the terms imposed upon Germany.  The Rev. E. O. Braden took occasion to  enforce the claims of the Victory Loan.  The flags of the Allied nations were  displayed, and later carried in the procession.  At length amid screeching whistles a  ���tart was made. An automobile contain,  ing Mr-rHugh Rose with his bagpipes led  the van. Next came a motor truck with  .a good muster of returned veterans, the  Mayor with Mr. |. W, Jones and others,  the two fire engines, fully equipped with  noise-making contrivances, the Boy Scout,  the Cubs, shouting and banging away for  dear life, followed a car decorated by the  National Service girls, and a string of  motors, rigs and wagons half a mile long  ���and everybody yelling, blowing a trumpet or beating a drum I The procession  made the round of the city and then  broke up into different units keepirlg up  the fun until they were tired out, When  the boat came in the neise broke out  again.  It was a great and glorious time.  In the evening beacon fires were lighted on Dilworth, Knox and Black Mountains, and bonfires were also built in the  middle of main street. Effigies of the  Kaiser were burnt in many places.  It ia to be feared that several private  stocks of liquid refreshment suffered sad  depletion, but nothing was allowed to  interfere with the general rejoicing.  Mr. Homewood, who has started up in  the upholstering business, asks that or.  dera be left at the workshop, near Morri  son Hall, ori Lawrence Avenue.  Your Last  Chance is .  Coming  Saturday  WILL YOV  BUY BONDS!  jZ.  $1.50 Per Annum  "Victory" Chapter of  Daughters of Empire  Branch of Great Women's Patriotic  Organization is Formed in  Kelowna  The Imperial Order of Daughters of the Empire has been one  of the most useful organizations  during the war in promoting women's work of all kinds, and it is  pleasing to note that Kelowna has  at length fallen into line by the  formation of its first branch. This  move has been in contemplation  for some time, but on Monday  last in commemoration of peace, a  number of ladies met at the home  of Mrs. Telford and formed the  "Victory" Chapter of the I.O.D.E.  Mr. J. W. Jones was present and  spoke a few worda on the aims  and objects of the Order, and complimented the ladies on the commendable day chosen to organize.  1 lie avowed objects of the Order are to stimulate patriotism  amongst women and to unite wo-  Sen in all Darts of the Empire.  The officers elected were as follows : Regent, Mrs. Norman Tel-  ford; Fi st Vice Regent, Mrs. J. W.  Jones; Second Vice Regent, Mrs.  W. Perry; Sec, Mrs. B. McDonald;  Echo See, Mrs. C. J. Packham;  Treasurer, Mrs. Ambler; Standard  Bearer, Mrs. W. Lloyd-Jorles. The  other Charter ^members are Mesdames L. Dilworth, F. M Buckland  G. A. Barrett, R F. Morrison, and  W. H. Gaddes.  The meetings are to be held on  the fourth Monday of the month  at the homes of the different members, at 3 p.m. The next meeting  will be at the home of Mrs. J. W.  Jones.  Lieut. C. Hereron Gets  Wounded  Mr. M. Hereron received a wire  this week telling of the wounding  of his son Lieut. Charles Hereron.  No statement is made aa to whether  seriously or no', but it is to be  hoped not. It would be hard lines  on Charlie after going through ao  much if he were to be badly hurt  right at the finish.  Germany's Downfall is Now  Complete and Final  Armistice Tortus Will Give No Chance to Start Fighting Again  Although a little premature the  announcement of latt week that  Germany had surrendered wu  justified before very long, as indeed  everyone expected it would be.  Beaten in the field, exhausted financially and economically, with their  Emperor a hunted fugitive and revolution closing in from all'sides,  Germany could not but sign the  Allies' terms and end the war,  drastic though those terms must  have seemed. Immediately the  news of the signing of the armistice  and the conclusion of the fighting  was officially announced,, such a  spontaneous outburst of rejoicing  broke out all over the Allied countries as has never been known before.  On the ruins of the German  Empire is arising, according to  despatch, a new republic, absolutely eliminating autocracy and militarism. Though accomplished as  yet with little bloodshed, famine is  a spectre which is haunting the  new rulers.  Following ii a summary of the chief  armistice clauses:  I. Cessation of hostilities.  ' 2.

The spontaneous outburat of rejoicing at  the news that Germany had given  in, proves, if any proof were needed, how much the whole horrible  business had got peoples' nerves  keyed up. And now the tension  has been suddenly released. Instead of looking eagerly for war  newa we shall have to remember  there is no war and news ia chic fly  concerned with the cleaning up of  the mess. It is just the morning  after, in fact, and although fascinating enough to the student of economics and world politics, it will  have lost its grip for the great mass  of people.  One thing is evident, however,  that a huge feeling of relief nnd  thankfulness has taken possession  of people's heaita���relief that the  alaughter and turmoil ia over, and  thankfulness that the work haa  been brought to so successful a  conclusion by the complete downfall of the enemy.  The nation wil! not forget to  honor the mnn who have dune  this thing. The soidiers who luive  fought and died, or fought and  still live, and the great leaders of  the different peoples who have  borne the great burdens of orgnni-  zation and direction of eff it!.

Dear Sir,���I trust you will grant  me the favor of apace in your publication for a few rematks regarding the state of the roads in the  Kelowna and other districts in the  valley, more particularly in view  of the obvious fact that the motor  (ruck for use in hauling fruit, vege  tablea and other commodities, has  undoubtedly come to stay.  It cannot be too strongly brought  to the attention of the government  at Victoria by the Automobile and  Good Roads Association, Boards  of Trade and Farmera' Institutes,  &c, that larger amounts of money  will be urgently needed in the immediate future to make our roads  suitable for the rapidly-incrraaing  amount of motor traffic of all  descriptions.  I remember clearly the time in  the Old Country when all authorities interested in the making and  upkeep of roads were faced with  the same problem. It was then  proved beyond doubt that motor  traffic of every kind had a far more  disintegrating effect upon the top  surface of roads than ordinary  horse-drawn vehicles, and especially good and hard materials for  the macadamizing of roads were  found to be necessary.  It ia not likely that parties interested in hauling will be content in  the future to continue to utilize  motor trucks with a haulage capacity of only one to one and a half  tons. They will be looking for  trucks capable of hauling from two  to three times this amount, as the  cost of the man in control of the  truck would be the same in any  case. When the use of these heavier trucks becomes prevalent our  troubles will begin as the roada  as constituted at present are absolutely unfitted for such vehicles.  I understand the appropriations  for roads, bridges, &c, are considered by the powers that be at  Victoria some time in Decembei  in each year, so that time is now  the essence of the contract and  this matter should be brought to  the notice of the government  authorities forthwith.  Thanking you in anticipation of  your kind indulgence,  Youre very truly,  G. A.

Nov. 12. 1918  Transcendent above everything  else is the realization that at laat  the long black night is over and a  new day has dawned. The terrible suspense under which so many  whose husbands and boys are  over there have been living, ia now  lifted, and there has rightly been  much rejoicing such as we have  never been able to fully enter into  since August 1914. At the aame  time though, while we all rejoice  we do not forget that at this time  there are many sad hearts in the  loved ones left behind of those  who paid the price and made it  possible for us to rejoice to-day.  In the new day which has dawned  we must never let these sad hearts  feel that lhe price was paid in  vain. The only real object in life  for any of us who are left must be  to make that part of this old world  in which we live and move, be it  great or small, something worth  the sacrifices that have been made  for it.  For the scouls a wonderful fu  tuie is in store now that the senior  scouts and officers who have taken  part in the great fight will be com  ing back. From thouaanda and  thousands of letters that have  come from scouts on active service, we know that the scouls to  them is one of those things which  in the turmoil and stress of these  laat four years has seemed something worth while. We have suffered through loss and lack of our  best officers and scouts, and now  that will soon be ended.  One of the saddest things in  connection wilh the war has b.een  to aee our young boys growing up'  during these last few years and to  realize what was in store for them  so soon aa they turned into young  men. In our Iroop when the war  broke out all our eldest scouts even  were in their early teens, so our  Honour Roll is not a long one, and  now that it need grow no longer  as it would have by leaps and  bounds from now on, is a cause  for heartfelt thankfulness in us all.  We were all deeply  grieved   to  WATER NOTICE  USE AND STORAGE  TAKE NOTICE that I.

For the fiscal year ending March 31st, 1918, Canada sold on  credit to Great Britain and the Allies more than $46,000,000 worth  of metals, the greater part of which were produced from the  mines of British Columbia.

The Victory Loan 1917 made this  production possible because it enabled  Xanada to give credit to Great Britain  and the.all.es for their metal purchases  in this country.  Without this market the mines and  smelters of British Columbia could not  have sold their outputs.  But the mines have had a market  for their qres. The smelters have  turned out tremendous quantities of  copper, lead and zinc.  This production has not only  brought prosperous times to the miners  but it has been a mighty factor in helping to win the war, for these metals  were absolutely necessary to the production of munitions in both Canada  and Europe.  The Victory Loan 1918 will keep  the good work going. British Columbia will continue to have a market  for her metals and other minerals and  these will help to win the war.  By buying Victory Bonds you enable Great Britain to secure needed  materials for munitions and you help  to maintain prosperity in British Columbia.  Buy Victory Bonds to the limit  Issued by Canada's Victory loan.

Only  ducks, geese and deer remain  open until December 15th.  Tha syndicate of local Japanese  who purchased the. 40 acres of  land near Mr. DeHart's house, are  getting to work preparing it for  nest season's crop. A tractor and  gang plow is tearing up the soil.  Sergt. T. McDonald, says an old  country paper, who was killed on  September 2nd, has been awarded  the military crass. Sergt. McDonald was once a Kelowna man engaged in government road work  in the district.  Mr. W. Kaiser and son left Sun  day on a very extended tour  of foreign countiies, commencing  with Holland. Victory Bonds will  help to keep them moving.  Wm. Fraser, a former Kelowna  printer, but of late living on his  ranch at Anglemont, near Salmon  Arm, died a few days ago at New  Westminster Hospital of influenza.  He leaves a wife and two children.  Dhu Lipa Singh, a well-known  local Hindoo, has fallen a victim  to the flu, passing away.luesday  at the emergency hospital. He  was badly injured during October  in a runaway accident, and had  not fully recovered. Another Hindoo, Bags Singh, is amongst the  sick.  Last week-end a number of  Italians got into trouble with the  provincial police on account of.  offences against the game laws  and alao for trespassing on private  froperty in order to shoot. On  hursday Martin Angelo and Joe  Lefranco were each fined $ 10 and  costs for trespassing on the K.L.O.  in pursuit of .game. On Saturday  Sam Turia and Louis Guidi met a  like fate. The latter was also fined  an additional $25 for shooting a  hen pheasant, and had his gun  forfeited besides. He said he mistook it for a grouse, but as grouse  are also now out of season this  did not help him.  What Will Become of  the Kaiser?  Following his abdication William  Hohenzollern is reported to have  fled to Holland, but it is doubtful  if he will find a safe haven of  refuge anywhere. In all probability he will have to stand trial along  with his fellow conspirators for the  harm they have done.  After the sinking of the Lusitania  and during the early days of aerial  raids on London he was three times  indicted for murder in England. Under internstional law it is said re  quisition for hi* extradition, may  be made by England under the  indictments still standing against  him.  According to official figures, Germans had been Jong engaged in  securing profitable investments in  Canada. At the beginning of the  war German capitalists had over  $32,000,000 invested in Canada���  chiefly in B.C. A close analysis of  these investments show that British  Columbia coal mines and coal lands  mortgages and mineral lands, to  the value of twenty million dollars .  was held by a German Junker syndicate headed by Wilhelm Hohenzollern.

He  developed pneumonia on top of  it which made it an unequal contest for him as his vitality had  been sapped through a severe attack of smallpox from which he  suffered on a trip to China some  ten vears eg v Fong had been  cook for Mr. DuMoulin in Nelson,  and when he moved to Kelowna  with his family in 1905, Four  decided that he would come to  K lowna too. He was with Mr.  DuMoulin ever since with the exception of a few short periods  dining one ot which he went to  China. Last summer when we  were at a loss to find a cook for  our camp, Mrs. DuMoulin very  kindly came to our rescue bv loan- j  ing us Fong, and he certainly ]  proved " a good scout." In his  last illness all that careful and kind  nursing could do for him was  done at the home of the family he  had served so faithfully, but he!  did not have a chance. Fong did  not die a Christian, but with the  lijjlit that was given him, in fidelity  to his master and in affection for  those who showed kindness to  liim, he measured up to the Stan-  r\ nds of our Christian faith, so  that for him now it is surely not  too much to feel that "somewhere  ilie sun is shining."  *       ���  We cannot   let   this   column  go  bv without men ioning the fine big  "Goad   Turns" being done by two  members of  our committee in the,  persons of Cubma8ter Gordon and .
