 Hetotima Ucwvb  irr  59=  ___  VOL. IX.   NO. 49.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1917.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Death ol Alderman  Harry H. Millie  Long Struggle Against Dread  Disease is Ended  After many month) of frightful  pain and Buffering with the inevit-  ableness of death always before  him as the result of the incurable  nature of hia disease, Aid. Henry  Herbert Millie passed away shortly  before midnight Monday, The  circumstances of his lingering illness and ol the efforts which have  been made in vain to find relief or  cure are well-known locally and  widespread sympathy has been  awakened for hia unfortunate case.  As a resident of over thirteen  years in Kelowna, and one of the  most genial of mortals at that, Mr.  Millie had many friends throughout the district, and though there  was a general feeling ot regret as  the news of his death became  known Tuesday it was mingled  with relief that he had at last been  released from his sufferings,  It is only about a year ago since  deceased began to suffer from  what was throught at the time to  be severe toothache and neuralgia  and by the beginning of thia year  this had grown so bad and evidences of a worse disorder had become so apparent, that acting under medical advice he decided to  seek the assistance of the famous  Rochester surgeons, Mayo brothers. They at once pronounced  him to be suffering from cancer in  the face, and after a few weeks of  unavailing treatment, he was advised to return home, no hope  being entertained of hia recovery.  Since then although he has had  every care, he has gradually gro>vn  worse and it began to be realized  a few weeks ago that the end was  not far off. He had been long  resigned to his fate, which he ap  proached with a cheerfulness  which was characteristic of his irrepressible Irish nature.  The funeral took place Wednesday and was ih charge of the local  Oddfellows of which order Mr.  Millie had been a prominent and  active member. It was largely attended, the gathering around the  graveside including the mayor and  fellow aldermen of the city council,  members ot the Oddfellows,  Orange and Masonic orders, and  numerous friends from va  parts of the district.  Mr. Millie was born nearly 55  years ago in Kings Co., Ireland,  and was in many ways typical of  the impulsive, generous, hot-blooded race from which he sprung.  He came to Canada 33 years ago,  and was for many years located at  Carmen, Man. In 1903 he moved  to Kelowna. He was a jeweller  by trade, and for some time foi  lowed this occupation. His was  an enterprising nature, however,  and having had considerable experience in the telephone business  he conceived the idea of establishing a system in Kelowna and  strung the first wires 12 years ago,  He corltinued to operate the sya-  tern until four or five years ago  when he sold out to the Okanagan  Telephone Co. Since then he has  continued to act as agent for the  Dominion government telegraphs,  He waa a member of the city  council during three terms. Though  during the present year he has  necessarily taken little part in city  affairs the council declined to ac  cept his resignation, and he thus  remained in harness to the last.  He is survived by a wife and  two daughters who have the sym  pathy of the whole community in  their trouble.  Rutland News  (Frees oer ewe sotrssroadset).  Mra.

Establish Apple-Packing  Record  A new district record for apple  packing was established at the W,  Jackson ranch, Creston, Ontario,  when T. E. Goodwin and P. Trus-  cott put up 176 boxes in the day's  work. Of these not more than 25  per cent, were threes, and the  fruit was not of more than normal  size. Two years ago these same  packers established a mark of 172  boxes, which has stood until now.  On the same day three pickers on  the same ranch turned in a total  of 225 boxes for seven hours'  work.  Mrs. F. Small returned from the  coast Monday.  Mr. F. A.

Jennens, a  daughter.  The largest grain cheque cashed  in Rouleau last week was tor $9000,  and that only represents a part of  the prosperous farmer's crop.  Last Friday's Zeppelin raid over  the south-east and east British  counties killed 34 and injured 56.  an official report states.  The Belgian government estimates Germany has damaged Belgium to the extent of ever a billion  and a half, excluding the enormous  loss resulting from the cessation  of Belgian industries. The Germans are now stripping the factories of equipment.  A. G. Robertson of Penticton  was badly hurt Monday while  loading a wagon with apples.  One of the front boxes gave way  throwing him under the wheels as  the team started forward. He  sustained four broken ribs and  other severe injuries.  Fifteen German airplanes were  brought down by British aviators  in recent fighting over the battle  area in northern France, savs the  official statement on aviation issued by the war office, German  airdromes and railway stations  were bombed heavily. Eight British machines are reported missing.  Changes  Made to Date Back  to First of April  Amendments far - reaching in  their effect have been made by  order-in-council to the Canadian  pension regulations. The most  important changes provide for an  increase in pensions and allowances to soldiers and sailors holding the lower ranks, up to and  including the rank of sub-lieutenant  in the Canadian navy .and lieutenant in the Canadian expeditionary  force.  These changes will be considered as having come into force on  April 1st, 1917. At the present  time the annual expenditure involved is about five million dollars. With the increases now  authorized Canada's outlay will be  over seven million dollars for pensions during the fiscal year.   0    Russian Workmen Formulate  Peace Terms  The Workmen's Council Committee has  produced a war solution ot fifteen articles,  aa follows: Germany must evacuate Russia, autonomy given Poland, Lithuania,  Armenia and the Letts, plebiscite (or  Alsace-Lorraine, restoration to Belgium,  Serbia and Montenegro with compenaation,  alao to Roumania if she gives autonomy to  Dobrudja end grants Jews equal rights,  autonomy and a plebiscite to follow in  Italian provinces of Austria, also in disputed Balkan districts; restore all colonies to  Germany; re-establish Greece and Persia  neutralize all straits, including Suez and  Panama; renunciation of indemnities; no  economic blocades; peace congress delegates to be elected by the people; gradual  disarmament and a non-military system  ���   '  Suddenly aasuming the offensive Russian  troopa on the Rige front captured German  front line trenchea in the Slculi, Hinzen-  burg Manor, Althazer Manor and Lemberg  Cattle sectors, it ia officially stated. The  enemy evacuated Hinzenburg. The Russians repelled an enemy attempt lo land  forces near Moisekul Manor, eight miles  north of Werder.  The French advanced Tuesday nearly  two miles over a front of two.thirds of a  mile capturing Alternant, Vaudesson and  Malmaiaon fort. The victory ia one of the  most important of the wer. Premier Pain-  leve announced the drive aa a most important success.  Thousands of Germans were taken prisoners, twenty cannon were captured. The  French reached Chavtgnon brick yards  overlooking the Laon plains.  Judge Fremont Wood notified the food  administrator that approximately 1000 cars  of first-grade Jonathan apples are now  awaiting shipment in the Boise and Payette  districts end must be moved within twenty  days. Tha Twin Fella Commercial Club  telegraphed that thousands of tons of  apples and potatoes would be lost in that  aection unleaa cera were furnished immediately.  The efforts of the Board of Trade  to secure the attendance here of  the Medical Board under the Military Service Act, so far have not  met with much success. Inquiry  of Dr. Boyee, who is head of the  board for the district, showed that  the plan of visiting the various  centres in the valley had already  been discussed by the authorities,  but had been abandoned owing  to the fear that too much of the  board's time would be spent in  travelling between the diff< rent  points. The only other alternative  was the appointment of more  medical men to the board, but  ���here was apparently a scarci! v of  doctors who could devote the lime  to the work. As to whether the  Exemption Board will meet here  or not has not yet been decided.  The Saskatchewan Hail Insurance  Commission will have a surplus of  between $50,000 and $100,000  this year on account of small hail  losses.  In the German Zepelin 1.-49,  brought down intact by French  aviators on Saturday, the niacin aery  and instruments were undnmi i;ed,  the firat instance of its kind r.ince  the beginning of the war. All  the German airship secrets are now  known.  At the recent municipal cot. ven-  tionSouth Vancouver urged ataong  other matters: "That every councillor before taking office should lake  an oath of allegiance lo the Allies  as against the Central Powers,  expressing his determination I > do  everything in his power to I a ing  about an Allied victory."  A correspondent, who bj-ihe  way has failed to comply wit' the  condition requiring a signatui e attached to any letter for public Hon  writes this week regarding the  arrival home of returned soli lien.  Our correspondent is evident'y of  opinion, that the welcome ai the  wharf in some instances it not  sufficiently cordial and enthusiastic. He (or she, is it ?) points out  that all the way across a spit a lid  welcome is given these hi i ties,  but when they arrive home only a  hoot froi r the boat and p >wet  house denotes their arrival. The  suggestion is made that some person should be always there on the  occasion to raise a cheer on the  arrival of returned men. lhe  cheer would then be taken up by  all present. The soldiers who had  many friends got this cheer, but  those who were not so well known  it was complained, got a poor welcome.  Southern Idaho is threatened with enormous loan through freezing of apples and  potatoes because of inability to secure  freight care for their transportation, according to telegrama aent to the food administration in Waahington asking that atepa be  taken to relieve the situation.  New Regulations for.  Overseas Parcels  Must Bear Alternative Address  in Case of Non-Delivery  Owing of the tact that the present  system of holding undelivered parcels, addressed to members of the  C. E. F., at the dead letter office is  resulting in the waste of large  quantities of perishable foodstuffs,  the Canadian postal department is  adopting a new system, regarding  which postmasters have received  (he following instructions:  Parcels addressed to members of  the Canadian Expeditionary Forces  Oversees should bear the nama and  address ot a second addressee to  whom the parcel may be delivered  or forwarded if it should prove im.  possible to deliver to the first. The  original address should be written  on the front of the parcel where the  postage stamps and customs declaration are affixed, and the second or  alternative address should be writ  ten on the back of the parcel.  If a second address is not fur  ished at the time of posting, and delivery cannot be effected, the contents of the parcel, unless of exceptional value or of a personal nature,  will be turned over to the military  authorities for distribution.  Parcels containing articles of a  personal nature or of special value  will be re'urned, if a request for  their return in case of non-delivery  is made by the sender, such request  to be written on the cover of the  parcel at the time of posting.  This plan is being adopted at the  suggestion of the British post office,  which states that the present pro  cedure of holding undeliverable  parcels at the dead letter office until instructions are received as to  theii disposal is resulting in thi  waste of a large quantity of perishable foodstuffs, which form the contents of 90 per cent of parcels  addressed to soldiers.  Boy Scouts Association  Annual Meeting  Looking for Permanent   and  Suitable Quarters for Troop  The annual general meeling of  the local association was held on  Thursday evening I..M at 8 p.m.,  with the following officers present:  P. DuMoulin, president, in the  chair, the ven. Archdeacon Green*  the Rev. Braden, L. E. Taylor,  W. A. Cameron, G. McKenzie,  R. L. Dalgli��h,Cub Masler Gordon  and S. M. Weddell, also Mesdames  DuMoulin, Gaddes, Groves, Cunningham, McKenzie and Whitehead. We were particularly glad  to see some of the scouts' mothers  present.  Reports were receive d from the  president, scout master and cub  master. It was decided that the  presentation of the silver crosses  awarded to Patrol Leader Godfrey  Groves and scout John Groves  hould be held at the Christmas  presentation of badgee. We expect arrangements will be made  for the presentation of their silver  crosses to T.-L. A. DuMoulin and  Second L. DuMoulin,at their school  at Port Hope.  The officers elected for the vear  were: President, P. DuMoulin;  hon. vice-presidents, the ven. Archdeacon Greene and the Rev, Mr.  Braden ; Vice-President!!, Messrs.  F. E. Taylor and G. McKenzie;  Secretary, Mr. E.C. Weddell; Treas,  Mr. J. R. Beale; Members of the  Committee, Messrs. W. J. Mantle,  W. A. Cameron, F. W. Groves,  R. L. Dalglish, Dr. Gaddes.  Hearty votes of thanks were  passed to those ladies and gentlemen who had sn kindly helped  the troop throughout the year, particularly with the Chris'mas bun  feed, concert and camp, and by  acting as examiners for the different badges; to the local Press for  so kindly publishing our weekly  Scout Column ; to Mr. Mantle for  auditing the tro'ip lararc ;-to the  directors of the A. & T. Association for the use of their building  for basket-ball,- and to the Kelowna Board of School Trustees for  the use of a room in the old school  for the cubs.  There was also a discussion as  to permanent and suitable Scout  Quarters and a permanent Camp  Site; the remedy for decreasing  numbers, and how to retain the  interest of the older boys. With  regard to the former two questions  there does not seem to be any  immediate remedy, but lhe-hope  was expressed that perhaps somebody would remember us in their  ill, and there could be no more  suitable memorial to be leit behind  by anyone than a building or a  camp site dedicted to the use of  the Boy Scouts. We are fortunate  in Kelowna in having a Committee  who take a lively interest in the  troop.  Last Wednesday the firat train  crossed the recently completed  Quebec bridge. It was a special  containing guests of the builders. '  Preliminary work has already  been commenced on the extension  of the high power line of the  West Kootenay Power Co., to  Copper Mountain near Princeton.  The main extension will be about  100 miles in length by air line and  will run via Camp McKinney with  branches to Penticton and Princeton.  The vacancy in the Saskatchewan cabinet created by the entry  of Hon. J. A. Calder, president of  the council, minister of railways  and minister of highways, into the  national union government at  Ottawa, was filled by the appointment of S. J. Latta, M. L. A. for Last  Mountain, and editor and proprietor of the Govan Prarie News, as  minister of highways. The Hon.  Mr. Calder who has been much in  the public eye lately is a brother of  Mr. W. B. M, Calder of Kelowna.  Iowa Building 5,000 Silos  Iowa farmers are building 5.000  new silos this summer, according  to lhe authorities at the Iowa Slate  College, who have made a close  census of the state. It is estimated  that the average Iowa silo holds  about 100 tons This means that  500,000 tons of silage will be conserved in the new silos in a convenient form for winter or summer  feeding, and it is now fully acknowledged that corn silage feed  is as useful in the summer in dry  districts as it is in the winter.  The Iowa State College statea  that the 5,000 filled silos would  carry 200,000 beef cattle through  a 100-day feeding period, or would  feed 100,000 dairy cattle through  the cold months. In addition to  the new silos it is said that Iowa  has at least 23,000 others built in  preceding years.  Before the advent of the silo  Iowa was largely populated with  roal estate agents trying to sell  empty farms, whilst now it has a  large population of brown pig*  and red cows and the real estate  agents are peddling crean. separata  tors to the farmers.  There are 56 religions in Saskatchewan, according to the latest  returns. ********!

Sir Robert Borden  Announces Policy of  Union Government  W. COM.  War el the IaVatior.  Sit Robert Borden liis iafued tlie  ioiluwnij.: htotenient in regard to  tlie formation and personnel of  the new government, and with reaped to policy *o be carried out:  The present union or national  government has been formed with  a desire lo give representation to  all elements of the population who  support the purpose, and effort of  Canada in this war. Representative men of both political parlies  are included in ils personnel; and  it is intended forthwith to give lo  labor special representation upon  the principle already followed  wilh regard to agriculture, impressed by the urgent need of putting aside all minor considerations,  of sinking nil party differences and  of presenting a united front at this  solemn and momentous juncture  in the nation's history, the members of the government have come  together in the duty of service lo  the national interest.  lhe lines of policy which will  be followed chiefly are relative to  the prosecution of the war, and to  lhe consideration end solution of  problems which will arise dining  its progress or which will supervene upon the conclusion of peace.  They may be outlined as follows:  1. The vigorous prosecution ol  the war, the maintenance of Canada's effort by the provision of  the necessary reinforcements, lhe  immediate enforcement of the  Military Service Act, and the n.nst  thorough coopeiation with lhe  governments of the United Kingdom and of the other dominions  in all matters relating to the war.  2. Civil service reform, with a  view to extending the principle of  the present civil service act lo lhe  outside service, and thus to abolish  patronage and to make appointments to the public service upon  the sole standard of merit. 1 Ire  civil service commission has irl-  ready been directed to make a  report to the prime minister as to  the necessary sleps for lhat purpose. Such arrangements will he  subject to the existing regulations,  which give preference in appointments to returned soldiers who  are duly qualified.  3. The extension of the franchise  to women with suitable provisions  for enabling married women lo  determine their nationality and lo  obtain n.iluinli/. ,tlou notwithstanding marriage.  4. Adequate taxation of war  profits and increased taxation of  income, as necessitated by the  continuance of the war.  5. A strong and progressive  policy of immigration and colonization, accompanied by suitable  provisions to induce settlement  upon the land ; to encourage increased agricultural production,  and to aid in the development of  agricultural resoutcee.  6. Effective arrangements for  demobilization, for the care and  vocational training of returned soldiers, for aid in enabling them to  settle upon the land, and for adequate pensions to those who have  been disabled, and to the dependents of those who have fallen.  7. The development of transportation facilities; the co-operation in management of the various  railway systems so as to ensure  economy in operation; to avoid  unnecessary construction and to  secure the widest and most effective use of existing railway facilities,  the encouragement and development of the shipbuilding industry,  and tbe establishment of steomehip  Orders for  Local  Scouts  ���bb prepared'      Kelowna Troop  Troop First;   Self Last  lines upon both oceans nnd lire  ureal lakes; ct-operation With lhe  various provincial ."governments  for the improvement of highways;  lhe investigation of the possibilities  of ait seivice for important naval  purposes.  B. lire reduction of public ex  penditure, the avoidance of waste  nnd the encouragement of thrift.  9. Effective measures to prevent  excessive profits, to prohibit hoarding and to prevent combinations  lor the increase of prices and tluiu  lo reduce the cost of living.  10. The encouragement of cooperation among those engaged in  production, with a view to diminishing the cost of production and  marketing so that the price to the  producer may conform more closely to that paid by the consumer.  I 1. lhe general development of  all the varied resources of Canada,  and their conservation and utilization to the best advantage of the  people with the co-operation and  e.id of the state in every reasonable  way for lhat purpose.  12. Adequate consideration of  lhe needs of the industrial population; the maintenance of good  relations between employers nnd  employees, and such conditions ol  employments as will assure suitable  standards of living among the  laboring classes.  The policy of the government  will also aim a! a truer understanding and comprehension between  the various communities, both east  nnd west, and the development of  a national spirit of united effort  among our people as the trustees  of a great heritage.  For the purpose of effectively  carrying out these policies the following methods have been determined :  I���A new portfolio, that of immigration and colonization, has  been established.  2���For the effective prosecution  of the war a permanent commis  sion of the cabinet will be established.  3���For the purpose of considering and carrying out the other  lines of policy mentioned above,  another permanent commission of  the cabinet will also be constituted  The orders-in-council establishing these commissions have been  prepared, and as toon as they oie  approved by his excellency the  governor-general, they will be  given to the press for publication  The personnel of each commission will be announced at the same  time.   o   New Method of Compiling Voters' List  The method lo be used in compiling a voters' list for the coming  Dominion election is one which iB  new lo this province though it has  been in use in Alberta and Saskatchewan for some years. As soon  as the election writ is issued, the  returning officer to which it is addressed is empowered to divide his  district into polling subdivisions,  each to contain not more than three  hundied voters, aud to appoint  enumerators. Each enumerator  proceeds just as a census taker  would, making a house to house  canvass and entering on his list all  I hoar: In his section who are entitled  to vole. This list is completed ten  days before election and exposed  in a public place within thc polling  division, where every elector may  see it, and, should any names have  been overlooked, they may be added as an additional list bv the enumerator, whe has to be at a fixed place  during certain hours of each of  these ten days. Electors may olso  object to names on the list and if  these objections be sustained the  names may be removed by the  enumerator. Finally, on election  day any duly qualified elector  whose name is not on the list may  appeal to the returning officer, who  may allow him to vote, placing his  ballot aside as if it were a challenged ballot, so that if it should seem  later that it might have an effect in  altering the decision a recount may  be held and his claim to vote decided before a counly court judge.

Although he knew that his papers were  clean, he felt perturbed nevertheless.  His reception by the late King, however, was one of the most cordial  nature. After some preliminary remarks, His Majesty said:���  "I think you are entitled to a holiday In return for your many years'  work on the , so you had better  take this."  The astounded officer was handed  an Admiralty order granting him a  year's leave of absence on captain's  full pay.  "You can renew that at the end  of the year If you so deaire," added  His Majesty, with a significant laugh.  "And, by tihe way, this may Interest  you."  The captain was then given a letter  offering him the command of a superb  and newly-built ocean liner. The  letter was to the effect that the personal recommendation of the King  was the cause of Its being written.  The over-helmed captain never quite  remembered how he got out of the  palace. Hut he became the monarch  of tlie ocean liner.

Whey butter  must be so labelled  even when mixed with  dairy butter, and dairy  butter retains il" label  though it be mixed  with the creamery product.  You can be supplied  with neatly - printed  wrappers for your  butter atthe Kelowna  Record Office, for the  following prices:  100PA^fcuSSnNC$1.50  200  500  1000  2.00  3.15  4.50  These prices include Both the  Paper, which is -the best obtainable  for the purpose, and the Printing  of same.    Please note this.  Owing to the extraordinary rise in the price of butter  parchment (which haa gone up over 100 per cent) we  have been reluctantly obliged to raise our prices slightly.  Nearly all this paper was previously manufactured in Bel-  gium, and needless to say this supply has been entirely  cut off. Unfortunately there is no guarantee against further increases, indeed, they are more than likely.
