Meeting of  City Council  Engineers Appointed for New  Sewerage Scheme  The council met Monday morning, Mayor Jones presiding and  Aid. Sutherland, Raymer, Millie,  Blackwood and Taylor being present.  The first business was introduced  by Aid. Raymer, as chairman of  the Sewerage Committee, who read  the following letter from Messrs.  Canavan and Mitchell, civil engineers of Victoria, applying for the  position of engineers for the new  sewerage scheme which the council have under consideration:  Gentlemen :-  RE   PROPOSED   SEWERAGE   AND  SEWAGE DISPOSAL SYSTEM  We are prepared to undertake  the design of your proposed sewerage and sewage disposal system  and to supervise its construction,  subject to the following conditions:  Complete designs, specifications  and estimates will be submitted by  us for approval by your honourable  body. Upon approval, in order  that the city may secure the best  and most economical construction,  the execution of the work is to be  carried out entirely under our supervision.  Choice of material shall be al  our discretion, and all material  necessary for the work shall be  ordered by the city upon requisition by us.  A resident engineer, paid by us,  shall be present on the ground and  be responsible to us for the proper  conduct and progress of the work.  All other employees in connection  with the work shall be chosen, employed or discharged and the rate  of their renumerotion fixed entirely at our discretion. Payrolls and  vouchers, certified by us, ahall be  submitted monthly and these as  well aa what time checks may be  necessary, shall be honoured upon  presentation to the city.  While we shall endeavour to  make use of local material and  labour where other things are  equal, it is understood that we shall  be under no obligation to do so,  when, in our opinion, the best interests of the city will not thereby  be served.  Our fees shall be at the rate of  ten per cent, of the entire cost of  all labour and material in connection with this work, as shown by  the audited monthly statements of  expenditure. These shall be payable on the tenth of the month following that for which the statement  applies.  RE PROPOSED STREET IMPROVE-  MENT  We are also prepared to make  recommandations, designs and  specifications for the proposed  street improvement of Kelowna  and to supervise its construction.  Our fees for this work shall be five  per cent, of its total cost.  It is understood that the designs  for all work ahall be prepared in  such a manne'r that future extensions of street pavements, sewers  and sewage disposal plant may be  made in entire harmony with work  already done, but that the works  proposed to be executed under  your current money by-laws shall  not exceed in estimated cost the  sums appropriated therefore.  It is further understood that in  the event of your decision to dispense with our services at any time  whatsoever prior to the completion  of the work represented in amount  by your current sewerage and  street by-laws, we shall receive the  sum of five hundred dollars ($500)  within one month from date ol  such notification, thia sum to be in  consideration of our services in  prepaiing the initial designs and  report.  With this clear understanding of  our respective positions in this matter, we feel sure that the work can  be carried on in an efficient manner satisfactory to you. If this proposal meets with your approval we  should be glad to have your acknowledgment.  Yours very truly,  CANAVAN & MITCHELL,  per A. K. Mitchell.  Aid. Raymer said the committee  had met and discussed the  matter  with these gentlemen, and were  quite satisfied with their qualifications, and although the conditions  expressed in the letter might need  some modification, he moved that  the firm be appointed for the work.  The following resolution was  passed : " That Messrs. Canavan k  Mitchell be and are hereby appointed to act as engineer's for the  sewerage and street improvement  as per their communication of May  29th.  A resolution was also passed  that the sum of $250 be paid to  to Mr. R. H. Parkinson for his report on the sewerage scheme.  It was the intention of Mr. Mitchell, said Aid. Raymer to com  mence work at once. He advised  starting at once wii'i the improvement of Bernard Ave., as the plans  for the sewerage system would  take some time preparing.  If the committee decided, said  the Mayor, to put the sewers in the  lanes so that the main street would  not be interfered with, it might be  aa well to go ahead at once with  the proposed improvement.  Aid. Sutherland reported that he  had seen Dr. Dickson in reference  to the secretaryship of the Irrigation Convention. It would mean  that he would have to engage  someone to look after his ranch so  that the salary of $100 per month  which was offered him would practically have to be handed over to  someone else. He had however,  promised to undertake the work,  and devote hia whole time to it.  The following resolution was  passed : " That Dr. Dickson be appointed local secretary of the Irrigation Convention at a salary of  $100 per month from June 1st to  August 20th.  Dr. Dickson would take up at  once, said Aid. Sutherland, the  publicity work suggested by Mr.  Rankine, the secretary of the Irrigation Association. The latter had  asked for photographs of Kelowna  and district, and articles of interest  to be inserted in each issue of  " Western Canada." Mr. Rankine  would co-operate in every way  with the local secretary and had  promised to practically place the  publication at the disposal of  Kelowna for the next two months.  He trusted the Board of Trade and  everyone else would assist in making the convention a success.  Mr. J. A. Bigger, the building inspector attended with a report on  the condition of the C.P.R. building  on the wharf. He said that upon  examination he had found it to be  unsafe. The rafters and roof beams  were burned and the roof had  already spread out about two feet  wider in the cen're.  It was contended that the responsibility for its condition rested  with the cily, and the clerk was instructed to notify the C.P.R. super  tendent that the inspector had con  demned the building aa unsafe and  to request that it either be taken  down or repaired.  Mr. R. H. Parkinson attended  with the new map of thr city he  was preparing. The map had involved an enormous amount of  work and- was not yet complete,  but was in such shape that it could  be used by the city assessor, whose  work was being held back for want  of it.  Aid. Blackwood proposed that  the account of D. Mills of $60 for  work done at the nuisance ground  be paid.    This was passed.  The following accounts were referred to the finance committee  for payment:  F. Swaiiison, 27 daya on streets 81.00  Power House payehert for May - 535.00  R.

Millie urged the necessity  of purchasing a landing net for the  use of the fire brigade.  The mayor suggested that it  would be better for the brigade to  make a request and present it to  the council through Aid. Millie in  proper form.  The meeting then adjourned.  Meeting of  School Trustees  Plan* for New School Under  Consideration  The Board of School Trustees  held a meeting Monday last at I,  p.m., trustees Lawson, Mackenzie  and Trench being present.  The   following   accounts   were  passed for payment:  Vernon News Co.,  advertising       $   3.60  P. B. Willits ot Co., stationery . .75  D.

Resignations were received and  accepted from Miss E. E. Miller  and Mr. J. A. MacDonald, of the  Central School staff. Several applications for positions were also  considered.  1 he secretary was authorized to  pay the annual subscription to the  B. C. School Trustees' Association.  Competitive plans for the new  school building were submitted  from Messrs. Branch & Coxail, Vernon ; A. J. Clarke, Kelowna ; H.  M. &W. A. Whiddington, Leth-  bridge ; Bell & Constant, Vernon ;  G. E. Nobles, Lelhbridge; P. E.  Corby, Penticton and R. B. Whitten  Lethbridge.  It was decided to hold a special  meeting of the Board for the purpose of considering these plans.  Baseball  Kelowna, 6  Enderby, 8  It was a great game that was  played on the park Monday, and  drew a good crowd of enthusiasts.  Although the loss of the point did  not seriously affect Kelowna's  standing in the league, we should  have liked the local boys to have  come out on top. However, as it  was they put up a great show but  were outclassed by the Enderby  team whose 8 runs were very well  played for. The game throughout  was good and some fine individual  effects were shown. Below can be  seen at a glance how the league  stands.

A committee from the Board of  Trade waited on members of the  council last Thursday at a committee meeting to press the request  decided upon at a meeting of the  Board���that the city devote one  mill of the taxes this year to advertising the city and district. The  council promised to give the matter consideration.  Okanagan Rural Deanery  Meets at Penticton  A meeting of the Rural Deanery  of the Okanagan took place this  week at Penticton under the presidency of the Rev. Thos. Greene,  rural dean.

Wedding Bells  JENKINS-HALL  Although the Kelowna Baptist  church is not by any means a new  building, the first wedding to be  celebrated within its walls took  place Tuesday evening, when Mr.  Hugh Jenkins, superintendent of  the Sunday-school and one of the  most prominent workers for the  church, was married to Miss Edith  Julie Hall, who arrived only the  preceding day from Birmingham,  England. The church was prettily  decorated for the occasion with  roses and wild flowers, and there  was a very large gathering of friends  of the bridegroom, the church  being filled to the doors. The  service was rendered all the more  attractive by the presence of the  choir who gave musical selections.  Mr. J. B. Knowles acted the part  of groom'* man.  According to custom a Bible was  presented to the couple to commemorate the fact of their being  the first to be married in the church.  The happy pair were also the  recipients of many presents from  friends, including a handsome library table from the church members. The ceremony was performed  by the Rev. D. J. Welsh, pastor of  the church.  Mr. H. W. E. Canavan and Mr.  A. K. Mitchell of the firm of Canavan & Mitchell, who have been appointed engineers for the city in  connection with the new sewerage  and street improvement schemes  left forVictoria last week.  Monday was the 47th birthday  of King Georpe V. and was understood to be a general holiday all  over the Dominion. Some places  took the matter up wilh great enthusiasm and closed all stores and  buisness places. In Kelowna, however, except for the schools and  banks, loyalty did not prove active  enough to take another holiday so  soon after the 24th of May.  Mr. A. W. Barber, the new proprietor of Biggin Si Poole's store,  has purchased from Mr. Hoy the  house on the east end of Bernard  Rutland. News  (From our own rorrenpundent.)

Government Scheme to Place  Immigrants  The following letter, received by  the local secretary of the Farmers'  Institute, will be read with interest  by those who are requiring help.  II run with intelligence and busi  uess-likc promptness such a scheme  of affording an authoritative medium ol exchange between farmers  and newcomers should prove a  great benefit to all concerned ;-  Sir.���  " Official communication has been  received from Mr. W. W. Scott,  Superintendent of Immigration at  Ottawa, with regard to the direct  Ing ol immigrants to places where  they will be most likely able to  secure laitu wolk 01 domestic ser  vice, as the case may be. It is the  desire of the Superintendent of  Immigration that this department  should publicly make it known  that his department in turn will be  pleased to direct immigrants to  farmers desiring such immigrant  help as may apply from time to  time.  This movement, of course, is  only about to assume actual being,  and it will be some time before  much progress is made, though  .liiiih that encouragement along  this line would be of material  benefit to farmers of ihe districts in  the province and also residents  who are requiring assistance in  their households.  I should be glad II yon would  bring this communication before  your committee, and if at any time  you have any inquiry along these  lines, kindly communicate with the  Superintendent of Immigration al  Ottawa immediately."

When your child has whooping cough be  careful to keep the cough looae and expectoration easy by giving Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy as mav be required. This  remedy will also liquify the tough mucus  and make it aaaier to expectorate, ^ It has  been used auccaasfulfy in many epidemics  and ia safe and sure. For sale by all  dealers.  A machine which it is asserted  will destroy weeds by fire and extinguish the flames and sparks immediately afterward to prevent fire  from spreading is one of the recent inventions described. It uses  crude oil which is driven by boiler  pressure into a mixer where it combines with steam at a heat sufficient  to vaporize the oil.  From the mixer the oil and  steam are conveyed through a tube  to burners, combustion takes place  and the flames are driven down to  the roots of the weeds with a steam  pressure of 120 pounds. Practically any number of burners may be  used.  By using a fine spray of oil it is  possible to burn out stubborn  growths like salt grass and other  stubborn weeds while they are  green. By this method the gutters  of residential streets, where the  traffic is not heavy enough to keep  down the weeds, may be kept  clear.  The burner is covered wilh an  apron of sheet steel, lined wilh fire  proof material an inch thick, to  localize the fire and prevent damage lo fences, shrubbery, etc..  After the flame has done its work  it is extinguished by a fine spray of  water forced over the ground.  A hand burner is recommended  for clearing gutters. This is a  small type, mounted on a cart with  tongue fastened to the rear of ihe  machine in such a way thai it can  be guided along the line.  It is claimed that twenty miles  can be cleared in a day, and all  seeds and roots destroyed.  Perhaps our city council may  give consideration to this as a  means ol fighting the dandelion  plague.

Blame for the Titanic  Blame for the Titanic "disaster is  chargeable directly to the failu.e  ol the dead Captain Smith to heed  repeated warnings of icebergs  ahead, but responsibility for unnecessary loss of life must be  shared by Captain Lord of the  steamship California, through his  disregard of distress signals. This  is the finding of the Senate committee which investigated the sinking of the Titanic, as prepared in  a comprehensive speech delivered  by William Alden Smith of Michigan, chairman of the committee.  Senator Smith declared that responsibility also rests upon the  British Board of Trade, to whose  laxity of regulation and hasty inspection, the world is largely indebted for ihe awful fatality.  In denouncing Captain Lord of  the California, the Senator said the  Titanic's distress signal wa" plainly seen from the deck of his vessel  a short distance away.  America will leave to England  the chastisement of those guilty,  asserted the Senator, and he quoted  British law to show that Captain  Lord might be prosecuted for a  misdemeanor.  Biggest Boat Afloat  The Hamburg-American Line's  new mammoth transatlantic liner  " Imperator," the biggest vessel in  the world, was successfully launched at Hamburg on May 23rd.  Emperor William acted as sponsor  Johannes Burchard, Lord Mayor of  Hamburg, delivered an address on  the recent great developments in  ��hipbui!ding.  The launching weight of ihe  " Impefalor " was 29,755 lona, but  when completed il is believed she  will displace about 52,000 tons.  Among the innovations introduced into the new vessel as a result  of the Titanic tragedy thecompany  has determined to swing overboard  the life-boats, in which room is  provided for every soul carried by  the steamer.  The "Imperator "will carry three  wireless operators, thus providing  for continual service. The dynamo  for the illumination of the vessel  and for the wireless apparatus is to  be carried above the water line.  Wilbur Wrighl, the worldrfamed  inventor and aviator, died Thursday last at Dayton, Ohio. He was  one of the two brothers who were  practically the inventors of the biplane.  Premier McBride states that  financial arrangements have been  completed for the building of the  railway from North Vancouver to  Fort George, the government guaranteeing $35,000 a mile.  The fiercest forest fires for years  are raging through the country  north of Prince Albert city. The  Hudson Bay railway survey camps  were destroyed with a loss of all  outfits. Much valuable timber has  been burned.  The minister of militia is considering a plan to establish thirteen  new trading camps on a scale similar to "the Wetawawa Camp,including two for British Columbia, one  in the north and one in the south.  The British government returns  of emigration show that the following went to Canada during April:  From England, 20,123; Scotland,  5557; Wales, 316; Ireland, 1,324.  Total, 27,370. To the other Dominions the number was 10,624,  and to the United States, 13,023.  Prince Arthur of Connaught is  to be granted leave from the army  in-order to pay a visit to his parents in Canada, during the autumn.  He will join the king at Balmoral  in September and may go to Canada immediately afterwards so as  to get some sport during the fall.  R. F. Greene, conservative, was  elected Friday by acclamation as  a member for Kootenay in place  of A. S. Goodeve who was appointed to the railway commission.  The unopposed election was the  result of an amusing blunder on  the part of the liberals who had a  candidate ready but had mistaken  the date of nomination.

It is the wart  disease, called also " black scab,"  ' canker," and " cauliflower disease." It is caused by a fungus  lhat forms wrinkled, warty excrescences on the potato, and often  reduces it to a black pulpy mass.  When this breaks in the ground,  it liberates millions of spore-sacs  that may infect the soil for  years.  The disease was first discovered  in Hungary in 1896, and since  then has spread to many other  parts of Europe. It reached England in 1901, and has made great  headway not only there, but in  Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Since  the wart disease was reported  from Newfoundland in 1909, and  il already threatens North America.  It is said that only by stopping the  importation of potatoes from places  known to be infected can the wart  disease be kept from getting a  foothold in this country. It is  hoped, therefore, that the Secretary  of Agriculture will be given authority to enforce such a quarantine  for the protection of one of our  greatest food-crops.  Raising a Town  In order to raise ihe level of the  town eight feet, nearly all the buildings in Wilmington, near Los Angeles, in California, have been placed  on temporary wooden supports.  Wilmington stands on low ground.  Not long ago, when engineers began the work ol dredging the adjacent harbor, it became evident  that here was a chance to get, at  comparatively little cost, thousands  of tons of sand with which to  change the grade. A bulkhead  waB erected around the land to be  filled, and the discharge pipes from  the dredger carry the sand to all  parts of an area about twenty city  blocks in size. Il is estimated that  1,200,000 cubic yards of material  will be taken from the harbor bottom, when the grading is done the  town will stand high and dry above  the harbor, and the principal  streets will be on a level wilh ihe  docks.  His Royal Highness ihe Duke of  Connaught, Canada's Governor-  General, is expected to visit ihe  Okanagan about 3rd ol October.  The Right Hon. Walter Long,  who was minister of agriculture in  the last British Conservative government, will pay a visit to Canada  in the Autumn. Mr. Long is one  of the leading members of the  Conservative party in the old land  and is recognised as an authority  on agriculture and municipal  affairs.  The report of the directors of  the White Star Line company,-com  menting on the loss of the Titanic,  says the loss of the fine vessel is a  source of deep regret to the directors, but of minor importance compared with the terrible loss of so  many lives. The dividend paid to  the share-holders last year amounted to sixty per cent, profit on the  year's workings, and amounted to  $5,373,760.  Remember the dale of the visit  of Mr. S. L.

Record  Thursday, June 6  AIR CONQUEST  LONG STRUGGLE  Barret li of Opinion that the Monoplane Il the  Machine  of the  Future,���Present Speed Must  Be Doubled to Secure  Safety,  The fundamental principle of aero-  ���tatlca waa cUaoovered by Archlraedei  and formulated aa follows: "Every  body plunged into a fluid li subjected by thia fluid to a 'preBaure' from  below to above which Is equal to the  weight displaced by that body." The  firat application of thia principle waa  to balloons, oare being taken to produce a body whole totul weight was  lees than that of the volume of air  It displaced. But although the principle waa thus applied a* fur buck as  1788, It was not until 1884 thut the  first balloon capable of being ..Leered  waa produced by Col. Henard, who  accomplished a circular flight lu what  deeerved the title of a dirigible. The  reaaon tor this wan that lu order to  stear a body floating In a fluid It la  absolutely essential that this body  should possess ..u ludtrpendt-m apecd,  tu permit It to move In the fluid of Its  own accord. In 1887 Col Henard succeeded In obtaining an electric motor  of eight horsepower weighing only  forty kilogrammes a horsepower and  capable uf great endurance.  Mtmuplunv (be future Mm lilne  Today roe !-.') ���N-: V'" succeeded in p rfectlng motors especially designed for aviation of the almost In-  credibly light weight uf two kilogrammes a It., "^[iw^'i aud of such  perfect action that they can start In  un Instant without preliminary preparation. Professor Berget, in his  volume "The Conquest ur the Air,"  explains clearly inul briefly the  mechanical difficulty of the problem  snd the scientific reasons why It took  a century to discover how to guide the  machine which Uie Mothers Mont*  t.tili'U'i' launched into tbe ulr In 1788,  Next   came    the   problems   connected  with the resistance ot 'he air, which  determine the shape of the envelope  for a dirigible balloon. A spherical  balloon can not b�� propelled. So long  ago as the beginning uf the nineteenth  century Mare} Monge predicted the  necessity of adopting a shape, should  an attempt he made to propel aero*  .siats, which should have "the head of  a cud and the tall of a inaolturel."  According we see the fusiform shape  lu the Ulffard and Satitos-Dumont,  the fish shape lu the Kenard, Le-  bauohy and Clement-Bayard snd the  cylindrical lu the Zeppelin. As the  result of the laws uf air resistance  large balloons have nil advantage over  the small, (he Zeppelin (18,000 cubic  meters) being the largest ever made.  though the shape Is RgnluSt Its best  Interests In Ihis particular case.  The Aeroplane*  The forerunner of the aeroplane  a .ts the kite. In a chapter entitled  "Application uT Oeueral Principles,"  after discussing the wings aud their  proper angle, stahiliiv aud ihe means  for Its realization, Prof. Berget pronounces deefdely In favor of monoplanes as aguiiiHt biplanes and declares that the Rheiins week of lull  conclusively demonstrated the superiority of ihe monoplane, which appears to be the aviation apparatus  of the future. One of the defects of  the Wright biplane, he asaerUi to he  the warping of the wings to keep the  currying surface as horizontal um possible. This must Inevitably end lu  endangering the essential solidity of  ihe structure, he Bays. Another defect  Is that It requires nn extra action oil  the   part  of  the   pilot.

The position  le supposed to he filled by each member of the Cabinet In turn, the period  of duty varying frum a weak to a  fortnight, or even a month, In actual  practice only two or three Ministers  are called upon to be lu attendance  upon the King, and the duration uf  their vial la depends In great measure  upon th��lr personal popularity.  The late Klug Eklward frequently  dlapeosed with t he service of a  Minister wtoou he went abroad, and  the old ciuatoiu uf having a member  of the Cabinet at VYludsur wheu the  Court went there dues not now prevail. In these advanced daya of telegraphs and telephones, uiotor-ou-s,  snd other methods uf rapid Intercommunication U la not considered  Qecesaary that a responsible Minister  of the Crown should leave his official  duties for ao lengthy a period.

The Minister's presence at dinner  Is, however, Insisted upon, and he la  required to be present lu the drawing  room arterwards. Queen Victoria  Used to go through official documents  with her Ministers twice a day - In  the morning and offer dinner. King  Kdwurd, who was exceedingly methodical, devoted the first part of the  morning tu official buaineaa, and unless despatches received during the  Jay were special 1J urgent they were  tot submitted uud dlacuaaed until the  following  morning  King George la equally methodical.

B.  Lanigan, head of the Canadian  Pacific freight department, Winnipeg. Details of tin work of the  committee to'date are as follows :  In the Okanagan shippers asked  for a low rate on small quantities  of various fruits being assembled  at central points for re-shipment in  carloads. The C.P.R. has recognized the principles of such re-  shipment rates as a just one and  the flat rate of 10 cents per 100  pounds has already been in operation in the Okanagan for one year  to all assembling points in the  valley. These rates apply only in  a forward direction.  The minimum in carload weights  of case vegetables has been reduced  from 30,000 to 24,000. This rate  will operate to great advantage in  the caae of vegetables shipped in  crates such as rhubarb, cabbage,  celery and tomatoes.  A number of complaints from  various shippers as to delays in  transit were brought before Mr.  Lanigan. All agents will be instructed this year to give these  commodities as quick despatch as  possible. Shippers should report  complaints promptly so that delays  may be investigated and should  get these complaints in to the  secretary as quickly as possible.  lo expedite carload shipments  from Okanagan points, the C.P.R.  is inaugurating a schedule fruit  train service from Okanagan Landing to Revelstoke, avoiding delay  at Sicamous and making connection at Revelstoke for the east and  giving a running time between  Okanngan Landing and Calgary of  about 48 hours. The local refrigerator service from Okanagan  points to Vancouver and the coasl  will again be placed in operation  this year and additional barges are  being placed on Okanagan lake.  The Okanagan nnd Grand Forks  shippers   pointed   out   the   losses  Made to Measure  There are men in this town who would not buy a  ready-made suit. For such men we have the agency  for Fit Reform Made to Measure Clothes. We can  honestly recommend the garments made by this big  tailoring house and respectfully request you to come  in and look over the range of Suitings for Spring and  Summer.  WE  SHOW  NEARLY 400  LINES  The Oak Hall Clothing Co., Ltd.  occasioned by the use of unventi-  lated brine tank refrigerator cars.  The committee pointed out to Mr.  Lanigan the deficiency in these  curs nnd lie advmeu 'hat 400 more  ventilated refrigerator cars were  under construction this year a porr  tion of which would be available  for this year's crop. He has also!  undertaken to fit up all brine tank  cars with ventilators as fast as they  came into the shops, so that bv the  time cars are required in the fruit  districts, there should be available  a supply of ventilated Bohn-system  cars or ventilated brine tank cars.  In view of the great inciease in  shipments this year, it is quite possible that there may  be some car  shoitage despite the greatest efforts  on the part of the company to provide   against   it.    Where shippers  have   not  made  a   report  to   the  C.P.R. direct or through the British'  Columbia Fruit Growers' Associa-'  tion  of  the number of  cars they!  expect to require in each month of  the   shipping season, they should  do so at once.  The   committee  represented   to  Mr. Lanigan the desirability of re-1  ductions in freight rates generally j  to prairie points, especially to those  of the nearer markets   of  Alberta  and western Saskatchewan, which  consume the bulk of British Colum-j  bia shipments.    He met the view,  of the committee, and agreed to a '  reduction   according   to   mileage,'  taking the 8th class rate to Calgary  35 cents per   100 pounds   in   car  load.   Apples and   pears  in   less  than carloads,and "fresh fruits" in  carloads  take  5lh   class.    Apples  and   pears   in   carloads   take   3rd  class.    The reduction on this basis  will extend   to  a  number  of  the  distributing  points in Alberta and  Saskatchewan, and some  of  them  are as follows:���  Apples in carloads: From Ok,- -  nagan district to Calgary, from a  70 cent, rate reduced to 62 cents.  Spencc's Bridge to Calgary from  an 80 cent rate reduced  to  68  cents. Okanagan points to Medicine  Hat, from   a   75   cent  rate  reduced to 71  cents.     Spence's  Bridge to Medicine fiat, from an  85 cent rate reduced to 79 cents.  The    exact     figures     Irom    oilier  points anil for other   commodities  will be made  known   in   the   new  tariff, which will be issued as soon  as possible.    It will   be  seen  thai  the reduction'in rates will mean a  saving of $24 on apples and pears  from Okanagan points to Calgary ;  on soft fruits  it   will   probably  be  about   the   same.    In   these   two  items  alone   the   reductions   will  mean a saving  to   the  Okanagan  this yeni of about $10,000.  The committee also pointed out  to Mr. Lanigan that British Columbia fruit was not now shipped to  the Coast markets in anything like  the right proportion, and asked  that he make what reduction in  rales he could to assist our growers in entering this market, now  almost altogether occupied by  Oregon and Washington fruit. He  accordingly cut the rate on fresh  fruit from 53 cents to 48 cents per  hundred pounds, apples and pears  in carloads from 45 cents to 40  cents. This reduction will not,  however, increase the competition  which Const fruits may meet on  these markets as the effec.t will be  to dispiace a certain amount only  of the imported American fruit.  Ihe reduction in rates and mini-  inums nnd improvements in service undertaken by theC. P. R. are  made because of the representations of the B. C. Fruit Growers'  Association in belief that the same  would result in an increase in business to the company. Ihe committee expect that the improvements will put our produce on the  market in materially better condition and at less expense.

The flsel and His Snclel>��  The "clan BOOlety" Is, of necessity,  a comparatively modern Institution.  In the days when nearly all tlie hearers of a surname were to he round  In one Highland region, united for  mutual protection, owning direct  personal allegiance to their chief, the  clan Itself was literally a clan society.  There 18, Indeed, a notable similarity  between the causes of coherence in  the old days of the chin and in Ihe  new days of the clan society loth  were groups of people of tlie same  name, who claimed the right to elect  their own leaders, who considered  themselves as members of one great  family, and, as such, bound to help  each other in adversity, sickness, or  danger. It Is interesting to note that  there Is a trnceahle relationship between the time of a clan's misfortune  as a historical entity and Its formation of itself Into the modern form of  association ��� the clan society Two  of the most cruelly wronged duns In  Scotland were the Mackays and the  Macgregors. Each became tlie victim  of harsh oppression, though in dissimilar forms, and we find thut these  two clans were among the very first  to adapt themselves- to the new conditions, and, though exiled from their  ancient lands, to ally their respective  members to face the new problems  as resolutely as their forefathers had  faced  the old. .
