KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, AUGUST 24. 1916.-6 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Conservative Campaign Opened  in Kelowna Liy Premier Bowser  Delivers Fighting Speech in Answer to Abuse of Opponents  ���Liberal Candidate Takes Platform  Speaking   to   one    oi   the    Largest j development for British Columbia.  political gatherings that has ever ion      Speaking of financial conditions, he  vened   in    Kelowna,    i'reuiier .ioue, j aftid Liberals were charging that tbe*  opened the Conservative Lum  paign here on Monday nignt ol beha 1  of Mayor J ones, the standard htu'.er  in South Okanagan. The meeting  was a memorable one in many way a,  and will go down in tut; a mini a oi tho  political history oi this a ling tod Ltio  liveliest and most interoiiiiiug ever  held here. The Premier, de*;> '.e tbe  fact that he has addressed over ajjxiy  meetings in about, six weea* tit..-,  speaking sometimes three or foui  times a day, was in excellent form  and it is putting it mild to say that  he made a more than luvorade impression. The usual noise ihttl m$u>8  to have characterised the tactics .of  the Liberals in the other ridings o.  the Province was in evidence on tn.  part of some of our opposition i ramus  while the I'remier was making his  opening remarks. One by one, however, he silenced the hecklers, and for  the latter part oi his speech he was  given the utmost, not to say, eninus  iastic attention, ior cheers und applause greeted the prime minister as  tunc after time he Knocked down the  arguments of his opponents and demonstrated that in many valuable  pieces of legislation that he brought  down during the last session he was  making a real effort to direct the  affairs of government along businesslike lines.  Mr. Rogers' Mistake  There were many Liberals in attendance and they greeted - their Candida te  Air. liogers with great enthusiasm  when he took his place on the plat  "Jim upon the invitation ot the c'uu.i  man, Mr. J. 1". Burne. Kven the..,  however, had to admit that their can  ��� Ui'dute -spoiled what was pernaps a  otherwise favorable impression ne hau  made, by constant ell'orts to interrupt  the I'remier during his address. Mi',  lingers had been given an attentive  hearing and in all fairness he should  have been willing to accord the I'remier the same. He did not take that  view, and this waB to hia own detriment, for every time he interrupted,  the i'remier, who is used to that kino  thing, countered heavily.  For the last three-quarters oi an  hour, of the Premier's lengthy address  he was accorded a splendid hearing  and whoa he sat down three migh.,  cheers were given for him tt0.- far  exceeded in volume any' previous applause oi the evening and showed con  clusively that he had not only an-  sewered his opponents to the satisfaction ol his audience but that he had  inspired confidence in the clear cut,  statesmanlike policy he had outlined.  Mayor Jones made an excellent im  pression. He is a serious speaker  and deals in hard headed iaots. His  appeal to reason is not that of the  impassioned orator dealing in empty  phrases but that of a man who lias a  purpose and his demeanor is suoh as  to instill the belief that he will carry  out his purpose in a satisfactory man-  ner.  He referred to the iact that this  was the opening meeting oi the campaign on his behali in the city, and  he was pleased to note the largeaudi-  ence which had assembled to hear the  Hon. Mr. BowBer. It was also a  pleasure to see so many ladies present  and was evidence of the increasing interest which they were taking in political matters. He only hoped that  the referendum which was to be taken  upon the question ol "Woman suffrage"  would reault in giving the women thu  right to vote.  In soliciting the votes of the electors  on his own behalf, he said that while  his support of the government was an  independent one he would always give  them his hearty support so long as  they put forward such excellent legislation an has distinguished the last  session.  We had a province of which we  could be proud in spite of the knockers who went around preaching blue  ruin. Our natural resources would  compare favorably with many of the  older countries, France, for instance,  which had a population of 40 millions.  He looker! forward to a similar great  ] were in hopeless chaoB. ...This was  anything but true, as a glanoe over  the paBt few years would show  He spoke of the rapid development  oi the, province since the time    when  Sir    Richard   McBride    took hold ol  affairs    in 1903.     Since confederation  l the    debt    of the province had only  reached the  sum    of twenty millions.  j lie compared this with the public debt  j of   other    provinces and cities.     For  instance,    Saskatchewan was in debt  twenty millions,  and Alberta  twenty-  eight millions.     These provinces were  in    a    different position from British  Columbia   in that   they did not control their own resources and had prac-  tieally no security in comparison.  ihe city of Vancouver had a ue.jt oi  twenty-height millions, Toronto seventy  live mdlions, and Alontreal ninety millions, und there was no comparison  between thy value of the securities  which could be offered by these cities  and the province of B.C. Our,crown  lands were valued at one hundred  miliums, interests in townsites, iifie a  millions, tinner four hundred jnULons,  deferred payments on land twelve millions, and so on. The Liuerals were  howling that the province was hope1  kssly bankrupt, and yet the Primi;.r  could float loans at a lower rate tin,,  the Anglo-French loon in ;New York.  lie detailed some of the expendituua  which had been made on various pu.jlic  works in the province during the past  few years, and pointed out that from  iiAM to 1U15 the total revenue of ti.��  province had bean *84,7ua,00U, * whilt  tne expenditures during that s ,  period had been $86,0lRi,0UO, a difference of only a million and a .quarter  these figures showed how the affairs  of the province had been handled,  He dealt at some length with the  Agricultural Credits Act, as one of  the items of recent legislation of particular interest in this part of the  country. He believed that when the  system was fully in operation it would  work wonders in the development of  tho valley. The act had empower'd  the government to borrow 15 millions  of dollars, and at present one loan of  a million had been placed at a comparatively low rate. He detailed a  few of the more important provisions  of the Act, and showed by interesting  and illuminating figures the great advantage which had accrued in agricultural development from the operation  of_ similar systems in Ireland, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand.  There had already been," he noticed,  several applications sent in from this  district, and these were being dealt  with as rapidly as circumstance)  would permit.  The,Irrigation Question  Coming to the question of irrigation  whioh was one with which the district  was closely concerned, he said that  when he came to Kelowna nine years  ago, tho town was very small, and  the population of the entire district  numbered only some 1,100 or 1/200  people. The various companies had  taken up land here and put in irrigation systems, bringing in settlers who  helped to bui,d up the town and district. Altogether the farmers had some-*  thing like twelve million dollars invested in the district surrounding  Kelowna, and it was only right that  they should receive a fair return from  their investments. The only possibility of return was in the production  of the land, and to get this they must  have security of water supply. What  would the district lie, he as'^ed, without the water systems? Property  would be almost without value.  The various irrigation companies  had expended over two million dollars  the distriot in irrigation systems,  half erf which had been furnished by  outBide bond holders. He had figured  that at present there were only about  12,000     acres    being  cultivated   under  Tax Rate For Current  fear is Fixed  Actual Levy Lower But Rate  One Mill Higher  The financial estimates for the  ent    year, and the striking oi u  :urr-  rate  Vernon-Kelowna  Fire Brigade Contest  Smart Work Shown in Series  of Fine Efficiency Contests  One of the most interesting items in  the program of events at the Regatta  of taxation have been the pr.in.ipul J last Saturday was the series oi lesls  matters engaging the attention of tits for speed in faying hose, making con-  city council during the past week. : uections, etc,, in which the \ ernon  The estimates as submitted called j Fire Brigade competed with the hel-  for an expenditure of iJ'J^/SOO.lo.

The matter of taxing improvements  was laid beforo the council aB a whole  but owing to the fact that the committee had been able to reduce the  actual levy and were hopeful of a still  further reduction next year, they  deemed it inadvisable to take any  action or make any change.  As the varioUB estimates had been  previously carefully considered in committee, there was very little discussion  and the necessary tax rate bylaw was-  introduced and put through its varioos  readings. .,  At Friday's meeting several items of  correspondence wore dealt with, including an applioatSion from the Occidental FrUit Co. for a few loads of gravel  for the lane at the back of their  premises. Thia was referred to the  committee.  The Western Canners, Ltd., asked  the council to look into the possibility oi the new branch sewer to the  B. 0. Evaporators, which is to b��  connected to the branch serving the  premises-'of the Western Canners, caus  ing damage owing to overloading the  outlet. Aid. Rattenbury however,  reported that he had investigated the  matter and was of the opinion that  no trouble would arise if reasonable  care were used.  Mr. A. L. Cross ibformed the council  that the B. C. Evaporators had applied for a 2-inch water connection to  their factory but were surprised to  learn that "they would havo to pay  the total cost of same less the cost of  an ordinary $ in. connection. He  estimated that such an arrangement  would cost his firm $45, which he  claimed the council should not impose  upon a new industry.  After giving the matter careful consideration the council decided to make  a li-iu connection at the ordinary Iee.  A copy of the form of judgement  handed down by Mr. Justice Morrison  in tho caBe of the Canadian Nurehern  Company's suit against the city in  connection with the sale of their lands  for taxes, was forwarded to the oity  council. The court declared that the  sale of the company'B lands for taxes  was illegal, irregular, and invalid, and  further, that the lands were exempt  fronx taxation up to July 1st, 1024  or until they, ceased to form part of  the railway. It is understood that  tho city will enter an appeal against  the decision. .  Owing to the * probability of the frequent absence from the city during  the neat month of Mayor Jones, it  was decided to appoint Aid. Sutherland as acting Mayor for the time.  A further meeting was held Monday  morning in connection with the estimates for the year, but was adjourned  until the afternoon at 5 o'clock for  the attendance of Aid. Sutherland. At  that meeting the tax rate by-law���and  from the automobile truck with hose  at a hydrant, connecting up one  length then a "l" connection, then  two lengths from that with nozzles,  and getting water.

The Kelowna  team beat them by ti 2-5 seconds, making the lirst part in 33 seconds and  the second in 34 seconds.  'lhe second test was that of laying  four lengths of hose with nozzle from  a hydrant, getting water, disconnecting and returning to the truck. The  Vernon time for this was 2 minutes  51 3-5 seconds, and Kelowna 2 minutes  11 seconds.  iThe next was a ladder test, an acrobatic feat which won much applause.  Each side had two teams of five men,  and the test consisted of running 25  yards, with a 10 it. ladder, then lour  men holding the ladder erect while the  fifth man ran up one side, over the  top, and down tho other, then picking  up the ladder and running back t���  the starting point. The lirst team*  from each side tied with a time of 13  seconds; tho second teams alBo .i  their time being 5 seconds. As a  liual the lirst teams with the Lest  time tried again. This time, while  tho Kelowna boys came through in  15 seconds, the Vernon boys accomplished the feat in 13 4-5 seconds.  The fourth and final test was the  "Break and Make" test. In this five  lengths of hose with nozzle attached  were laid out on the ground. lhe  contestants, two in each team, hud to  run 25 yards, take oil-nuzzle and break  every connection, run around the dead  end of the hose, couple up again and  run back to starting point. Vernon  "A" team made a time of 2 minutes,  4 seconds; Kelowna "A" team 1 m.n  uto 414-5 seconds. Vernon "B" team  1 minute, 54 seconds; Kelowna ���"B'  team, 1 minute, 57 seconds.

Later in the day, and before the  boat left on the return journey, the  Kelowna boys entertained the visitors  at a little dinner in thu Lake Vim  hotel, at which amongst others,, liis  Worship, the Mayor, Aid.

The weather man who had been in  a disagreeable mood, for the past few  days previously, was pleased to smile  again when Saturday arrived, and th  tion, and the committee in charge of  arrangements, it might be mentioned,  were MesBrs.

During the  afternoon a storm threatened for the  space of half an hour or so, and a  chill breeze blew in from thenurth, but  this passed off again, without interfering with the progress of events,  and on the whole the affair proved as  successful as could be expected under  the existing conditions.  A special boat and train excursion  in the morning brought close upon  two hundred soldiers and other visitors from the north, and aB many more  cume by the automobiles which kept  the roads busy most of the day.  The energetic secretary of the Kelowna Aquatic Association, Mr. H. (1.  M. Wilson, and the various committee*  had arrangements pretty well in hand  and the long programme was carried  ont almost without a hitch.  No small part of the pleasure of the  day was due to the excellent band of  the 131st Battalion, which in addition  to selections in the afternoon, provided a concert in the evening when a  confetti carnival was in progress on  the water front. In the evening also  a dance was held in the pavilion,  which was gaily decorated with flag'  and colored lanterns making a pretty  picture reflected in :ho still waters of  the lake.  The afternoon part <>r (he program  Ras opened with an interesting nor.-  test between the Vernon ind Kelowna  Fire Brigades, the results of wbith are  noticed in Another e .lumu. Fi'llmv-  itig this was a lacrosse match between  teams of soldiers selected trim the  172nd Battalion and the 131st Ha'tt'a-  lion.    The latter has been mainly le-n  works.

PREMIER BOWSER OPENS  POLITICAL CAMPAIGN  IN KELOWNA  (Continued from  l-'atre  1.1  had produced abuul 2,UUD cars of  produce, valued at $1,200,000, What  cuuld be produced from 85,000 aer, s.  These ligures served to bIiow what it  wan possible lo make of the distik-t  ii u proper policy on tbe irriguti u  question was adopted.

Tli  bad expected to keep on by the stile  of their lands, aud the situution hau  been forced upon tht.*m through ao  iault of their own by the shutting oil  of funds, owing lo the war.  Two yeara ago hi' hud gone down lu  Victoria w"uh a deputation which had  secured Irom the government a prom  Ue to investigate condition* iu the  district, and in accordance with thai  promise valuable data had lieen o >���  taiued upon which to base a definite  policy.  This spring, realizing the urgency ol  the situation, he had wired Piemiei  asking him to send down immediate y  the best man available to see what  could be done . ...He had received the  reply that Comptroller Young was already on his way, and that the government would stand behind the sy-t-  pins in the event of a breakdown to  safeguard the water users.  What was the remedy? Allth-  companies were practically in the  same.position. His suggestion to the  government had been that they should  take over all storage reservoirs and  main canals, forming the water users  into municipalities which would handle  their own distribution. His policy  had been that the rights of the lot  holders muBt be protected regardhs-  of thr companies.  As    regards those Land  owners wh  were    not    under    any water system,  they    would    still    go on to control  their own water supply.  It had been said that he stood to  represent the vested interests of the  district. This waB right if it meant  that ho represented the interests and  investments of every man in it.  The liberal Candidate  Mr. L. V. Rogers, the Liberal can  did ate was then Invited to address lhe  audience. He began by saying that  the previous speaker had remarket!  upon the large attendance at the  meeting. He noticed that this was  always the case where be {Mr. Rogers)  was advertised to l��e present, which  modest Htateinent was greeted with  ironical cheers. He had'.been pres nt  at a meeting in Rutland during the  afternoon, but he had not been able  to return from there by the C. N. It.  The millenium was coming sometime,  he supposed, and he had been told  that tbe C. X. K, would be built into  Belowna, but he doubted which of  [them would arrive firet.  Bis attack on the Premier certainly  was violent enough to satisfy his most  ardent supporters. He wished to  stat�� that his criticisms were levelled,  not at W. J. Rowser, the man, whom  he regarded! aH any other man, except1  that when he had shaken bands with  liim he had been received with a  scowl instead of a smile. The lion.  W. .1. Bowser, the Premier, he regarded as public prop* rtv, and he had no  intention of sparing him. The Boweeuf  government, he send, had lost the confidence of the people through illegettty,  incompetence,  and extravagance.  As an instance of Hfr. Bowser's illegality he crted the case of the tP. (1.  T". Railway, where trust funds had  been robbed under the exonee of pro-  \idiriur employment for 7,"W men who  were out of employment in the winter  of   1914.       Now it was proposed to  lend another Bix millions to the coui-  panyto complete the line, lie wunlid  the attorney-general to state whether  he considered his action legal or  illegal.  The responsibility (or the doubt  which existed as to the legality of  the  past   session lay  at  the door     of  Attorney-General   Bowser, who should  have known when the life of parliament expired,  In reference to the plugging scandal,  he asked why, if M. A. Macdonald  had paid out IJ55U dollars to Gosden  as was alleged, Mr. Bowtvr did not  have the courage and manhood to  have him  arrested for it.  tie rated tho Premier upon the irregularities of the Dominion 'Irust Co.,  and asked why so many fraudulent  companies had heen allowed to take  the people's  money  unchecked.  To these questions he said he il ���-  manded clear and satisfactory repli  and he meant to insist upon getting  them. He took hia seat with an air  of grim determination and was loudly  cheered by bis supporters, who were  evidently  present in full force.  The Premier's Speech  1 he Premier in opening his address  stated that when he look oUicy conditions were much changed from what  the} had been during the past thirteen  years of the lite of the govenmic.u.  the times were abnormal. Prom a  great prosperity the people had pasts u  through the collapse of the real estate  boom und then the war bud come.  Without casting any reflections on his  former leader who had done so much  for the development of the province, a  new policy was needed to get Britiih  Columbia back to prosperous timea  again. He felt that it was better  that the province should trade on its  credit on the markets of tlie world  rather than burden the already ov. r-  burdened tax payer, who wus passing  through such abnormal conditions  And even if they were spending two  dollars to every one it received it was  better that way than to impose more  taxes on the people.  Aid to Shipbuilding  When he.took office he had latnied a  mauitesto of what he was going to do.  Une of the planks was aid to BU.p-  ijuilding. '! he federal government was  uusy curing for the war and could not  immediately assist- in the work, although they might late'' on, and were  even now considering some scheme  .hat would aid shipbuilding. Within  sixty days after he had issued that  policy ten wooden ships and one steel  one were contracted for .and were now  under construction. These ships were  not coating British Columbia a single  dollar. The arrangement waB that ii  one year after, the war the freigh  rates had not amounted to 15 pern ut  of the cost of the vessels the government would guarantee the investment.  With freight rates,aB high us they are  now now and likely to continue high  for several years, and with the scarcity of shipping caused by the war, be  had not the slightest doubt but that  at the end] ot time stipaluted the ships  would be earning far more than the  amount specified.  The company building, the 'ships was  a subsidiary company of a well-known  reliable concern of the east, who knew  their business and were not liable to  make any oostly mistakes in their operation. The ships would carry the  wheat that would come to the l.ig  elevator in Vancouver from tbe Peace  River country when that great dis  trict was tapped by the P. G. E., and  would also carry the lumber of the  coast district abroad. Sir. Richard  McBride, their agent-general in Lon*  don was getting many 'large orders in  connection with the w��jrk of the war  office and the admiralty for British  Columbia, but on account of the present lack of bottoms here it was impossible to lill those ordere. With  British Columbia-owned ships the  coaflt lumber would be taken for these  orders, leaving the interior mills free  of coast competition to cater to the  great trade of the prairie provinces,  CAMPAIGN OF ABUSE  At this point the Premier took occasion to remark on the campaign   of  Hificution and abuse thai the Liberal  part>' were carrying on all over the  province against him. He did not  propose to answer in "kind, but was  merely travelling all o*ver the length  nnd breadth of the province at considerable inconvenience to himself to let  the people aee whatkmd of a man he  was. In times past unfortunately he  had had to devote too much time to  the administration ��>i his deptartment  to spare rnuoh time to meet the pe'op-  le as he was now doing. He laid no  great claims to statesmanship. He  was only a plain ordinary man like  themselves, full of human nature, and  with tho ordinary faults of the ordinary man, and certainly not the ogre  that the Liberals had pictured him.  The people were taking no great stock  the abuse that w��h Iwing heaped  upon him. What ifhey did want to  know fiHt<bu8inesfl men was what he intended doing for th*- iuture of the  country. ���  .Mr. Rogers had talked of the apecu-  ESfcftfc  lutive companies thut had gone broke ' /��  in    the province.     Was he responsible ����  in    the province.  for them? As well say lie was to be  blamed for the failure of some of the  irrigation companies in their own  district.  Ab regards the Dominion Trust Co.,  which point hud bwen raised by for.  Rogers in his speech, the Premier stated that if he had made a mistake ia  the Dominion Trust bill he had had  good company, for e.ery Liberal at-  orney general in the Dominion bad  made the same mistake. Even if ihe  new bill allowing the company to, take  deposits had not been put into effect  thecompany still had the right under  the old bill to take deposits.  The lvitsilauo lteser.e  Mr. Itogern during bis speeou attacked Air. Bowser in regard to the ivit-i-  uuo iieserve deal m Vancouver, iu:  paying #JlW,U0u for that land. I He  premier's answer to this was that he  was proud of that deal. The federal  government wauled that land now  and were paying tbe provincial govern  ment ��iu\l,UlHl, and besides that an  arbitration committee was being op*  pointed to determine how much tl4  federal government was willing to pay  in addition, to the provinsial government for its rcvisionury rights. .^j  thut not only would the reserve cost  the government nothing but they  would makie u good profit on thc deal.  Plugging Cases  the Premier dealt at some length  with the plugging cases in Vancouver  going over much of th�� ground  launliar with those who followed tbe  evidence of the notorious plugging  eases ub reported in the press al ine  lime of the investigation ut Victoria  when it was shown beyond ijuesli >n  thut plugged votes were brought into  Vancouver on a wholesale scule to de-  feut Mr. Tisdall, the government candidate.  "Why don't you arrest Macdonald  ior giving liosden ;$">U.'" was the cry  of the Liberals in the audience and  he question asked by Mr. Rogers ta  lis address.  ''Because,'' said the Premier, ''(j os-  den is still on trial for perjury iu connection with the case and until that  is settled you cannot charge unutn.r  man with a ditl'creut crime on the  same evidence."  At this stage of the proceedings  these were cries of "Why don't you  bring back Scott?"  "1 have no power over Scott,'" answered the JPrender, "but the majority  ot Liberals of Vancouver are trying  to bring hiin back to Und out who in  their 'own party is the guilty man  who put him up to his methods,"  "John T. Scott came from Edmonton/' continued Mr. Bowser, "aud 1  do not know of any better school for  plugging than the Cross school in  bdnionton."  Mr. Rogers: ''Mr. Macdonald denies  that he brought Scott to the coast."  Mr .Bowser : "All 1 know is that  Mr, Macdonald in his sworn evidence  before the investigating committee at  Victoria admitted that he had install���  ed Scott in. the Liliernl committee  rooms at Victoria." lit might be  well to remark here that Scott waB a  member of the Sun newspaper in Vancouver the chief Libera] organ in  British Columbia.)  Continuing, the Premier told how  Mr. Scott had gone to Mr. Kidding ten  the chief of the Thiol Detective Agency  in Vancouver asking thut detectives  be placed in the Conservative committee rooms in Vancouver to see if  the Conservatives were doing any  wrong, Mr. Riddington would not  accept Scott's name on the uBUal con  tract of the detective agency. He  wanted a responsible name signed to  the contract and told Scott so. Mr.  Scott went away and shortly returned,  with a contract signed by Mr. M. A.  MACDONALD. Moreover Mr. Riddington had sworn in evidenoe that after  placing detectives in the Conservative  committee rooniB, they had found no  wrong doing ae regards the election in  the Conservative headquarters.  Mr. Brewster, said the Premier, had  read a letter the signature of which  was not given, at a recent meeting in  Kelowna, in which he Buid that John  L. Sullivan had met Mr. Bowser when  he went to Kamloops in the winter for  hia health. ...Mr. Bowser gave this an  unequivocal denial saying that it was  a "deliberate lie." He had not met  Ur. Sullivan at Kamloops nor at  Salmon Arm. In fact he ha.d only  met Mr. Sullivan for ten minutes in  all hia life and he thought he had a  telephone conversation with bun. He  did not know the man until he had  been pointed out to him one day.  Mr. Bowser challenged Mr. Rogers  and Mr. Brewster to show him one  line of constructive policy that they  had brought forward during this  electiqn campaign.  The Premier wont on to detail ritir-  Ing his address the legislation he had  passed in regard to the aid for raining, the Prohibition Bill, tbe Woman  Suffrage Bill, the Aid to Returned  Soldiers, the Agricultural Credits Bill,  Clean to handle. Sold by all Druggists, Grocers end General Stores.  the Soldiers Homestead Act, lhe bib  appointing a separate minister d  agriculture and the many other piccey  of legislation he hud had passed during the recent session, legislation  against which Mr. Brewster had eusi  only  three votes.  the Premier referred Lo what be  termed Mr. Rogers' tHppant lemarks  about thc building of the branch line  of the C. V K. to Kelowna, and relat  ed some of tbe recent negotiations  which had taken place with the manager of the company relative to its  early construction. Work was already  iu progress at several places, aud it  would not stop until the line was  ready, for operation, which would be  at  Lhe earliest possible moment.  "My LiLeral friend haB asked about  thc P. <-. K.," said the Premier, ' Well  the matter is before the OOUrtJ i*td  will be decided there."  Generally speaking he eharaeteftfed  the criticism of the government's railroad policy as decidedly unfair. The  people had twice emphatically given  the government to understand that  they wanted the government to i:.iai-  antee the railroads and I hey were  only doing as they had been told.  Tho Liberals had cast some oritioiim  on the etist of the new wing to the  parliament buildings, but they neglected to tell the people that the Hour  apace of the new wing was more tha  that of the old buildings, and thut  the cosL of materials and labor lied  greatly increased since the old buildings were constructed. There bad  also been a lot said by Mr. Macdonald  while here about $2,500 for the rent  of carpets for the first visit of tbe  Duke of Connaught. This had been  Jaced by an accountant simply as the  ost of tbe carpets which were rented  for the occasion from the Hudson's  Bay Company, but it ulso included  the cost of furniture purchased for a  new apartment for the representatives  of the royal family. "This was anther great Liberal scandal" Baid Mr.  Bowser, "and if there was, anything in  it Mr. Macdonald would have brought  it up at the time of the investigation  at Victoria. But he springe il here  in Kelowna in the hopes that during  my hurried visit here I will forget 1<  tell you about it."  Then there was the other liberal  scandal about the $11,00" ior illumination of the parliament buildings. The  inference left to be drawn was that it  was for one night only. It was actually for permanently wiring for electric illumination the whole front of  the buildings and for rewiring a large  part of the interior.  The Premier dealt at some lengtJt on  the Brewster writ, declaring that Mr.  Brewster could have settled all doubt  about,the life of parliament by voting  for the bill and allowing il to pass,  but fer the sake of political exigency  he was willing to jeopardize the future  ofthe province by tying it up to a  lengthy law-suit.  No Time fur Technicalities  "This is no time for technicalilies  and law-suitB," said the Premier, "We  have had enough of politics in this  country. What we want is a business  government. If Mr. Brewster had  been anxious to facilitate the business  oi the country he would have voted to  extend the life of parliament to June  1st. If he had been an honest man  he would have done so because the  Liberals had made the stutemeut that  ���h.s wus the most corrupt governmen  In the world, und 1 wanted them to  prove it, We made them stay until  June 1st. And whut did they prove?  Not one single doUar of the public  money had gone astray although we  have spent over ninety million dollars  on the public works of tbe country.  \ot only did we invite investigation  for the past three years, but we went  a step farther than we were compelled  to do and threw open the books of  the province for the past thirteen  years and not a Bingle dollar did they  show had gone aBtray, a record that  any government might be proud of,  and a record that redounds to tbe  undying credit of the civil service of  this country."  Blue Ruin Programme  "Mr. Brewster has a programme ol  blue ruin and pessimism. It he is  elected on September 14th, if be is an  honest man he will have to close  down. He cannot carry on the bust*  nesa of the country and will have to  appeal' to the Privy Council m tbe  matter of bis writ. That means LwO  years at tbe least and in themeantime  the business of the country must stand  st ill. If the Conservatives of the  country are elected we can carry on  the business of the country as well en  the 16th of September as we die1 on  the l.'lth of September.  To Protect Irrigation Watjr Uw8  An important pronouncement made  by Premier Bowser wras that concerning the dillicult problem of irrigation  water supply. In this connection ie  puid a tribute to the persistency with  which Mayor Jones had, during the  past year or two, kept on urging the  government to take hold of the Mtuu-  tiou and come to the aid ofthe farmer  und fruitgrower. Largely in responos  to these various appeals tbe govern  ment had kept their men at *vork  looking into conditions and getting  information with a view to (orr.iulal-  ing a definite line of action.  Thesituation had many difficult  aspects, but first and foremost it was  necessary to see that the farmer and  water user whe was endeavoring to  make a living off the land should be  amply protected. The various companies who had__taken up sections of  land depending upon sales of lots to  pay for their water systems ihad failed  to make good owing to the slump iu  land sales, but it would be suicidal  and criminal for the government to  stand by and see them drop out and  let everything go to ruin. It was  fully realized that the government  must stand behind the water users and  see them through. But there was  also the bond holders, those people  who in the Old Country and elsewhere had,lent the money to construct  the systems. They must also be pro  tected, or the credit of i the province  would suffer.  SAVE  YOUR  MONEY  FOR THE  Dominion War Loan  i    TO BE ISSUED IN SEPTEMBER.  By purchasing a bond you will help  to WIN THE WAR and obtain for  yourself an investment of the highest  class yielding a most attractive rats  of interest.  DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE  OTTAWA.f  lie could say definitely that the government now had the matter well  hand, and it would be possible   irom  the     data   obtained   to bring   down 1  some    policy    which would place the j  problem of irrigation on a sale    and j  proper basis.     He was not there    to|  make any rosy promises but   he   be-]  lieved the policy would take the form!  of government ownership of reservoirs!  and main ditches and water municipj  alities    to    handle    the distribution.  (cheers)    There was one thing certain,  however, that the man who lives  the land should be given the first con  s .deration.  In ttouclusion the Premier expresses  the hope that hero in South Okanagan  the electois would prove them��elvei  superior to the dirty campaign of lie:  and abuse, and strengthen his band.  in the carrying out of his plan tt  place the government on a business  like footing. Already, he said, th<  tide had turned from d.epresBion t'  prosperity, and it was no time fo  pessimism and blue ruin preaching  They must lie up and doing and read.  to take full advantage of tho wave <;  advancement and prosperity whicl  would come to the west with the cloa  of the war.  Mr. Bjnwaer resumed his seat amidi^  loud    and    prolonged  cheering.     Th'  chairman then threw the meeting ope;  to questions.     There. waB no response  to thiB invitation, hawever, e,nd    tho  crowd disparted to the strains of tl*  "National Anthem."

This event was somewhat spoilt from a aeries oi unfortunate circumstances. Two crews were  to compete but during the afternoon  three of the members of one of them  were prevented from doing so  by taking part in the Fire Brigade contests. Three visitors from  Vernon volunteered to fill the vacancies, but as no opportunity was given  for even a trial pull over the water  they were unable to get into shape to  make any showing in thc race. W'v  c_m only charitably suppose that hnd  they had a chance to get accustomed  to the boat and each other they might  have made it a more interesting con-  leflt. As it was, a crew consisting of  Messrs. Price, Scott, Ox ley and Pfyffer  who rowed well, carried off the prizes.  Men's 50 yards open swimming; race.  for the "I'ither and Leiser Cup:" 1,  IVArcy Hinkson; 2, Cyril Weddell; 3,  ft.   Keller.  Running spring board dive: 1, J.P.  Hume; 2, 1. Mfeddell; 3, (apt.

Boy Scouts' relay race: A team  composed of I. Weddell, A. Du.Moulin,  J. Calde* and C. (Jaddes, beat a team  composed of R. Keller, L. DuMoulin,  R. Parkinson and R.  Leckie.  Greasy pole: Four boys were the  Competitors in this difficult and amusing feat, R. Burtch, C. Copeland, K.  Hunter and C. Davidson. The first  three managed to touch the flag, but  in the final try out, C. Copeland was  the one who  carried off the honors.  Men's relay race: In this event, R.  Keller, C. Weddell, A. DuMoulin, an  L. DuMoulin beat D'Arcv liinckson, I.  Weddell,  Capt.   I'lumley and  Bourne.  50 yards swimming on back: 1, It.  de Pfyffer; 2, J. F.  llurne.  Canoe tilting: As usual this event  provided a good deal of fun for the  spectators. In the first round Ian  and Cyril Weddell vanquished E. Hunter and C. Copeland. R. de Pfyffer  and Donaldson beat A. Evans and  Price, but were in turn beaten ">y> the  Weddell Brothers, who emerged triumphant.  The mile swimming race for the  "Burne, Hewetson-Mantle Cup": In  previous years this has meant a swim  from the west side of the lake to the  grand stand, but this year the course  was over a measured mile from the  direction of Manhatten Beach, and was  won by Pte. E. Ilawkes of the 172nd  beating Pte. ���). Tennant of the 131st.  ...'lhe i-ano" tug of war was a new  turn in the programme and proved a  good one. Two canoes competed with  two paddles in each with one holding  at each end of a rope. After a stiff  struggle the Weddell Brothers and R.  d�� Pfyffer beat Messrs. Price, E. Evans  and R.  Burtch.  The cock fighting, the last event,  was also good sport. The first round  resulted in a win for 0. Weddell over  Evans, and the second for R. BurtJh  over I. Weddell. In the final C. Weddell scored a victory over Burtch.  A special event in addition to the  programme was an "Old Timers' Single Sculls," in Which Messrs. 0. Allen,  R. l.ambly. W. Crawford and Serpent-  Major Ryder contested. Mr. AlK-n  made good time, but unfortunately  owing to an apparent surplus energy  in his left arm his direction was not  towards the winning post but in a  curve which landed him ashore near  the pavilion. Messrs Lambly and  Crawford made an excit'ng finish wh'ch  proved to In- a dead heat���and a dead  best too, apparently, for they were  unequal ,to the task of pulling a final  the gallent Sergeant, who recently returnee! invalided from the front, de  elded'to allow the others to -larry off  the honors rather than over tax his  strength just yet nnd he sided in  serenely aboue five minutes late.  Troop First:    Self Last!  A full report of tha regatta pppe&vrs  elsewhere in this paper, but we would  liiio to express our congratulations iu  hose members of the troop who competed and did so well. The scouts  handicap and relay races proved verj  xciting and close finishes. Next year,  though, let us have more competitors.  We were glad to have with us over  thu day four scouts frum Penticton  and some of the boys from Westbank  who are organizing u lone patrol over  there. Our own scouts, in their un,  forms, were conspicious by their  aoeence.

UENEAGE,  Acting Chief Comraissioner for  British Columbia,  We are also in receipt of a letter  from Headquarters stating they are  making arrangements for their official  outfitters, to hold Btock at certain  places in the province, of standard  quality and prices. They consider  that Kelowna, being both a strong  scout centre and also the centrr* of thc  Okanagan, should be one of these  places. ...They ask if they can rely on  Kelowna to help them make such an  arrangement a success. Let our ans-  wc i- be emphatically. Yes,  Cobra has broken out in .lapan, and  there are thirty-two cases reported in  Yokohama. Tokio has declared a  quarantine.

Patterson and Miss M. Day, at  Benvoulin.  Sylph made an error last issue-  W. B. ML was training for the fire  brigade squirrell, not lhe lug-o'-  war. Why didn't he take part?  Well, khaki pants and he parted  company.  Was it one of our adherents who  after spending a week of romantic  life in Vancouver got so hilarious-  at the thought of returning to the  beauties of Kelowna, that he (ell  into Shingle Creek ?  Fred D has a unique system for  striking camp���talks all July about  going; actually swears he leavts  fiist week in August; then stays  until last Thursday in August  hasn't gone vet, and will probably  te the last to leave.  One of the boys just back from  lhe coast says that Manhatten has  got nothing on Vancouver for bathing costumes, lie says that aflei  spending one afternoon on lhe  beach he had to wear goggles to  save him from going color blind,  whilst the fashions in aquatic mil-  inery were simply���overripe !  The campers held a corn roast  last Wednesday night, about sixty  seating themselves around a big  camp fire, whilst Madame N.,  professor in palmistry, forecasl  the futures of our young fry. According to Sylph she always tells  the truth (but ils not wise lo risk  money on it).  Killkare Kottage was the scene  of a very pleasant parly compris-  ng all lhe children in camp Thursday night. A big camp fire and  Chinese lanterns assisted in the  illumination, and varied nndtempt-  ing refreshments were provided  by Mr. and Mrs. Renfrew. Needless to say a good time was spent  by all present.  A little bird told Sylph thai our  worthy provincial constable, ably  assisted by two ladies and one  gentleman of Scotch accent, left  what appeared to be a chunk of  ice near Shamrock Shack about 2  am one morning, but when old  sol came out and got to work it  turned out to be a woman! Pity  they don't sit close and keep warm  on these joy rides.  Our second annual regatta took  place on August 21st, about 35  spectators cheering and encourag  ing the youngsters. Miss E. L. M.  was the judge. Following are the  prize winners���Ruth, Nellie Clair,  Billy K, Billv P, Jean M, Beth  Bert, Doris, Cliff, Hector, Phillie,  Marguerite, Evelyn���and we are  grateful to Reggie and Charlie, the  English chappies, who enterlained  the ladies and looked to the comfort of all. Ask Lone Pine who  they were.  A great commotion, upheaval  and disturbance���such a noise,  hammering of boards, flying rigs,  auto trucks, disappearing canvas,  falling tears, pots, pans and stoves  moving as by magic. What's it all  mean ? ���a big bunch leaving foi  home, with many pleasant memories of having had a good time.  Let's stow away the tenls whilst  the earth takes its long sleep and  sit around thc glow of our heaters  and retrospect the happy hours  spent on dear old Manhatten.

The area is 1,131,841 square miles and j  the land is capable of supporting,  many more millions of people. If Ar-,  gentine's hopes are fulfilled the pop- ]  ulation will at least have doubled in  another twenty yearB. The Republic  dreams of a great immigration as a ;  result of the war.  -o-  The Town Crier.  Before the advent of the newspapers, the town  crier called the news of the neighborhood. Today the newspaper keeps you in intelligent touch,  not only with your own district, but with all the  world.  It is advertising that makes the newspaper  possible. Without it the cost would b<- beyond  most folks. When you think of it, the advertisers  pay the greater part of your share of the cost of  the paper. They do it for the privilege of telling  you about their wares, and most of them have a  story worth telling.  Read the advertisements consistently. They  are interesting and contain money-saving information.  VRir.HTCO  t91��  l-Hi'Jtt!  The Doukbobor jam factory at Brilliant is now turning out 4,500 pails  of jam daily.

THE KELOWNA  RECORD  5 .ft.  Something New.  Many advertisers are constantly trying to think  up "Something New" or "Different" and the re-  mlta are startling to be sure, but certainly not  convincing nor conducive to increase in the business of the advertiser.  The craze for originality is a mistake. People  do not care for stunts or mental gymnastics. They  do want to know the facts in regard to your business and whether you can offer better prices or  better quality than your competitors.  Tell the facts in a straightforward, unassuming  manner. You will gain the confidence of your  ' patrons, and you will find that advertising pays  abundantly. THURSDAY, AUGUST 24th, lillti  KELOWNA   RECORD  PAGE FIVE  .

Many will have heard tho rumors  which have been busy with the name  of Lieut. Fred. Heather of the Mission  and it was feared for some time that  he had lost his lift* in the heavy fighting in France. A letter which has  beon received by his sister, Mrs. Capt.  Ridley, now in Victoria, however sets  these disquieting rumors at rest, and  nlBo relates Rome of the terrible experiences through which he has been.  During an attack, some time ago, be  ran out at,a great risk in tho face of  fin' to Bave a wounded soldier, and ii.  doing so was shot down twice. For  this feat he was awarded the military  Cross for bravery, previous to whioh  he was promoted on the field for slmi-  for bravery. Also at the last fierce  battle of Ypres he was blown out of  tho trenches and buried and dug up  again. Nevertheless, his wounds were  not so bad but that when the letter  was written ho was expecting to  be able to get back into the fiLrht  again in a few days time.  (apt.

Now, however, thc value of  vessels has risen so much that there is  a prospect of the profits of the job  paving for the expense of getting her  into; the sea again, and a canal is lo  be ' dug from whore she lies to tbe  water.

Dear Sir,���  No doubt you are already aware that Thursday, September 14th has been fixed as the  date of the polling in the forthcoming Provincial Election.  As you will be called upon to vote for the South Okanagan Riding, 1 would like, as  candidate selected by Conservatives and a large body of independent business men and  farmers, to draw your at'ention to some of the more important considerations which make it  urgent and ner.essary that your vote and influence be used on my behalf.  The Okanagan valley and particularly the district of South Okanagan to which you belong,  is at the present time at a stage of development which demands the greatest care and active  co-operation of all concerned. Indeed, it might be said that the purely local needs and  problems of the district are so important as to entirely overshadow those of a wider provincial  character.  No one, I venture to say, of all those who have resided for any length of time in the  district, has had the temerity to deny that, for productiveness of soil, climate and general  desirability as a place to live in, our valley stands in the front rank of all the wide Dominion.  It is obvious, however, that these things alone are not sufficient to ensure the permanent  prosperity of the district, and there is no doubt that in the past too much emphasis has been  laid upon the natural advantages of the valley and too little upon the organization of neceasaiy  facilities such as transportation, extension of reliable markets lor fruit and produce, and the  provision of an absolutely permanent, cheap, and abundant supply of water for irrigation purposes. Given these things, which would ensure to the farmer an adequate return for his labors,  the natural attractions of the valley would compel a development out of all proportion to what  has yet been achieved.  The government of British Columbia during the past session adopted many measures of  far-reaching importance to lhe farmers of the valley, chief amongst w Inch might be mentioned  the Agricultural Credits Act, affording much-needed financial assistance to the farmer who is  struggling to put his place on a revenue-producing basis. The system is one which has worked  wonders in many other countries, notably in New Zealand.  Much progress has also been made in the preliminary gathering of data leading to the  government taking control of irrigation water supply, and this I regard as perhaps the most  pressing of all local problems. I am strongly in favor of government provision and ownership  of storage reservoirs and main canals, leaving distribution systems to be handled by water  municipalities specially organized amongst water users themselves. This would ensure a degree  of permanence which nothing else could give, and cheaper water rates to farmers.  For the first time the district of South Okanagan has been given the opportunity of direct  representation in the House, and it is essential especially at this critical time that a represenla.  tive be chosen who has thorough knowledge of local conditions, and who is in intimate touch  with its needs and problems.  As you know, I have been resident in Kelowna for a number of years and all my interests,  financial and otherwise, are bound up with thc district. For the past ten years I have been very  closely connected with almost everv local movement for the benefit of the district���the Beard  of Trade, the Growers' Exchange, Farmers' Institute, Agricultural Association, Kelowna Creamery, Kelowna Hospital, and others. Of my work on the City Council I need say no more than  that 1 have been a member of that body for the past seven years, five of them as Mayor of the  city. In all these various activities I have had an opportunity which has fallen to few of gaining  valuable experience and insight into the needs of the district, and I am willing to place this  experience at your disposal in looking after your interests should I be elected to the legislature.  During thc past few months the government of which the Hon. W. J. Bowser is the head, has  been subjected to the most venomous and bitter attacks, and serious charges have been  laid in the wildest possible manner. Happily these charges have been disproved in the most  convincing manner, and in some cases have rebounded to the lasting discredit of those who  laid them. The record of the past session of the House, too, is admitted on all hands to be the  most remarkable in the history of the province for the number and character of the beneficial  measures which hiivc been passed.  There may be some, however, who from purely party considerations would hesitate to  vote for one who admitted Conservative leanings. To auch 1 would any that while I certainly  would support the government in the highly progressive policy which has characterized the  past session, I am not a hidebound party politician, and would at all times place the interests of  the district before any party considerations.  Yours sincerely,  J. W. JONES.
