 wmm  ffefoltma Kecovb  VOL XL  NO. 13  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 13. 1919.���4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Big Banquet Cents  Churches  In order to further cement and  ratify the union of the Presbyterian  and Methodist bodies, which in  Kelowna was commenced in 1916  by tbe joining of the two congregations in Knox Church, and com-  . pleted recently bv the amalgamation of the two Sunday Schools, a  banquet was held last night -at  which something over 400 people  were present. The long tables  occupied all the available space-in  the large Morrison Hall, and were  laden with a profusion ol good  things provided by the ladiea of  the congregation. The whole affair  ���a most successfully managed,  and reflected the greatest credit  not only upon those who provided  the fare but upon the young people who waited upon the tables.  If any doubt had lingered as to  the success of this local experiment in church union.it must have  been completely dispelled by the  harmonious spirit which pervaded  the gatheiing, and the evident determination to make a united effort  tosieze the larger opportunities for  church work and social service  which are being gradually unfolded in these modern times.  No secret was made of the fact  that more money and more help  would be needed to carry on the  expanded work, but there was a  feeling of confidence that as the  value of the service being.done,  particularly amongst the young  people, became realized, there  would be no lack of f unda.  Mr. J. Ball occupied the chair  and after a few brief opening remarks introduced the pastor of the  United Church, the Rev. E. D.  Braden, aa the first speaker. Hie  address on the church and its relation to a "waking world" showed  an intense realization tf the need  of throwing off hampering prejudices and traditions to meet the  changing conditions of life. While  the church had always maintained  high ideals and taken a lead in  the fight against evil forces, it had  been slow to move with the times,  and had often lagged far behind  in the march of human progress.  The day was coming when it must  be above this reproach. New duties and new opportunities were  unfolding and must be met with  courage and enterprise. The minister ofthe future must be concerned less with his work in the pulpit  important though that was, and be  more in touch with the daily lives  of the people and various movements of civic life. He paid a very  graceful tribute to the assistance  rendered the work of the church  by the choir and ita leader, Mr.  Boyd.  Mr. Leslie Dilworth spoke of the  earlier days of the church in Kel  owna. the first service being held  some 26 years ago. There was  little thought of denominationalism  then and it was only later that the  Presbyterian and Methodist con'  gregatione became divided. The  first Presbyterian church waa built  about 20 years ago, and a upion  Sunday-school was continued up  to twelve or fifteen years ago when  the Methodist church was built, so  that church union was really not a  new thing in Keiowna.  Mr. G. S. McKenzie drew an interetting picture of what the united  church might become if everyone  realized and acted up to their re  Three cyclists who have disregarded the police notice against  riding bicycles on the sidewalk  have been brought up before the  magistrate this week and fined.  Will Renew Daylight  Saving This Year  The daylight-saving bill ol last  session is practically certain to be  renewed when Parliament meets.  Enquiry shows that opposition to  the bill, as expressed in communications received by the government, is very slight, much less, In  fact, than it was before the country gave daylight saving a trial.'  The opposition from farming communities is much less serious than  formerly.  Soldiers In This Week  Apparently unknown to the soldiers' reception con mittee there  returned on Saturday'a boat Pte.  C. E. Cowell, after a period of  aome four years in England and  France. with the Army Medical  Corps. Pte. Cowell, it will be remembered, was at one time a  partner with Hicks' clothing store,  and as he had manv friends in  town it is certain his reception  would have been enthusiastic  enough but for the fact that no  one knew he was coming.  On Monday Pte. Chas. Hawes,  who had remained behind for  some time at Regina, came in, and  was given the usual salute and  cordial welcome.  Today is expected J. Thompson,  of the Mission and on Saturday  Lieut. Selkirk and E. G. Mugford  of Rutland.  Big Demand for Public  Works  Applicationa and petitiona for  public works amounting to over  $50,000,000 are before the Dominion government. They cover every  type of public work from the humble building to the most ambitious  project. Practically every day  there is a delegation in evidence.  Asserting that designers of women's evening gowns "have led  fashion to the extreme limit of indecency," which is having a most  demoralizing influence upon the  youth of the country," the New  York Federation of Women's Clubs  adopted a resolution calling upon  women "to dress modestly" and on  designers and shopkeepers "to  control indecency in dress." A  committee was appointed to push  the war on scanty evening gowns.  The eye trouble with whieh  Viscount Grey, formerly British  secretary for foreign affairs, hss  been afflicted for yeart, has now  culminated in total blindness. Viscount Grey is learning to read by  the Braille aystem of characters  for the blind.  After a checkered career of four  days, Seattle's general strike has  been called off by the strikers in a  decision which went into effect on  Tuesday at I o'clock. The general  strike committee decided to abandon the sympathetic walkout which  had been designed to help 25,000  shipyard workei a to enforce their  demands for higher wages, in connection' with which they had quit  work more than two weeks sgo.  Through an accident a fine horse  was lost by James Moore of Peachland. When bringing a load of  green logs down hill, the load ran  off the road at a sharp bend, near  Spring Creek. The load pushed  the team over the ateep bank and  crushed one horse so badly it had  to be shot.  Local Member Delivers Vigorous  Criticism ot Present Government  Speech from Throne Affords Text (or Caustic Comment on  Government's Weak Spots -   Urges Action on Irrigation  and Land Settlement Questions  Urging the provincial government to make every effort at obtaining action by Ottawa in the expropriation and development of the  Indian reserves in the Okanagan,  Mr. J. W. Jones, member for South  Okanagan gave an inatructive and  well thought out contribution to  the debate on the speech from the  apeech from the throne in the  Legislature last week. The South  Okanagan representative was in a  critical mood in his reference to  the administration, but his criticism  waa of the constructive type, for in  every instance he was able to offer  what he considered were better  substitutes for the weak spots of  the government's record and  policies Mr. Jones devoted considerable time to the question of  land settlement, going into detail  in connection with the opening up  of the idle Indian reserves, the  aettlement of the irrigation question  by way of public ownerahip and  the repatriation On the land of the  returned soldieis.  He told the House that in the  Okanagan and Similkameen valleys  alone Indian reserves amounted to  147,000 ner -s, much of thia land  being of the finest quality and in  the posession of only 872 Indians,  few of whom made any real use of  it. The governments, he thought,  should take immediate steps to obtain posession of the reserves at  Enderby, Vernon, Kelowna, West-  bank and Penticton, preparing  them-for colonization by soldiers  and otherwise. He instanced a  case of where soldiers at Kelowna  were prepared to go ahead in a  co-operative movement for the  farming of a small reserve tract at  Duck Lake, but until Ottawa and  Victoria had reached a decision on  a basis for action nothing could be  done. In the meantime the de  velopment and progress of the  whole district was held back. Several of these reserves, if taken over  at once, could be used this spring  by soldiers, including one at Kelowna and those at Vernon and  Enderby.  . In the opinion of the speaker the  problem of giving immediate attention to the farm needs of the  returned men could be well met in  this way. The handling of Indian  reserves would be much better, he  thought, than opening up land in  far away sections or in embarking  upon very expensive projects which  would not permit the returned men  to get on the land for at least another vear.  Devoting aome attention to the  Southern Okanagan land deal, by  which the government obtained  22,000 acres south of Penticton for  $350,000, he pointed out that this  would be a big project and it would  not help the soldiers for a year or  two. The King's speech had indicated that large areaa of land  owned by the crpwn had been surveyed and reserved for soldier  settlement in the north, while the  Southern Okanagan purchase had  also been made. With ten thousand men already home from the  war and a general desire on the  part of the public to see as many  veterans on the land as possible,  this programme as mentioned in  the address could be accepted as  indicating the government attitude  to returned soldiers, he went, on.  But what did it reveal? What actually were the big plans of Victoria  for the reestablishment of the men  who ' went over the top"). What  was the land policy)   Where could  a soldier actually locate today? The  Minister of Lands had announced  that he set aside "soldier rural  homesites" at Agamemnon Bay and  Poipoise Bay as well as at Stuart  River, but the soldiers took quite a  different view of their value, for  men who had received $33 a month  for the past four years, had no  money for rural homesites, although  a minister getting $500 a month  might afford that luxury.  Mr. Jonea called Hon. Mr. Pattullo a  great advertiser. One year ago he had  promised $500,000 for the settlement of  tha ^irrigation question through amendments lo the Water Act. At the Nelaon  convention he had been forced, however,  to the admission that the amendments  made the bill virtually unworkable and  now he was urging the people in the  water districts to protect their (uture by  forming districts under the old dyking and  drainage act, the present water act being  too cumbersome and intricate.  "Is the purchase of the Southern Okanagan lands a bluff or a huge gamble ?" he  aaked. "The deal haa some advantages,  of course, because the development of  that line tract will mean wonderful things  for the Southern Okanagan���if that development is actually carried out. But the  price seems high and the eventual cost  will be great. Then there ia this drawback that it will not meet to-day's need,  for it will be impossible to place men on  the property for another year br two. 1  would like to know why the government  did not confiscate the land as it did in the  eaae of the lands in the northern part of  the province and aa would appear to be  ita general policy. Why waa it that the  minister at land* attended to the matter  and the Land Settlement Board waa left  out ? la this co-operation > And did the  government aend engineers and surveyors  over the tract to make a report ? Now I  see that having made the deal, Victoria  wants Ottawa to take the project over. To  my mind the department has missed tha  ���ntial need of the day and that is to  start on a land project which would mean  the minimum of expanse and which would  allow the aoldiera to start plowing this  spring.  Realizing the large contract this government is entering into in thia matter, with  the investment of probably two millions in  the undertaking, and realizing that another  government will probably have the handling of these various land properties, there  are certain things in connection with the  S. O. transaction that I want to know���  that the returned aoldiera want to know���  and that the public at Targe would like  information.on. One would have thought  tha miniater would have taken the membera of the Houae into his confidence, but  he is continuing his old course of endeavoring to rush matters affecting hia department through without lime for debate. The minister has not yet givrn any  detailed statement respecting the purchase  of thia large tract, as to the price paid, the  acreage, whether cash was given or B.C,  bonds.  We must not throw up our hats and  shout hurrah because .the minister haa  bought a tract of land that lay idle for  generations. The minister has not explained to the House why the S. O. Lund  Co. with its strong financial backing did  not proceed with devalopment^ong before  thia. Before we can indulge in rosy pic.  lures of the future of tha project we  should have definite data on the amount  of land which will be irrigated by gravity  arid by pumping; what acreage ia range  land, and exactly what all the remamder  is fit for and what the cost of getting it  icady will be. Then again the House  should know how many units of this land  will be put on the nrark.it this year, or if  not this year, when. How long - will it  take to construct the irrigation aystem to  the first unit and what is the character of  the soil)"  The speaker aaid he was very anxious  to have information about she department  of agriculture,, to which vary slight reference had been made in the King's  apeech. Tha new miniater was appointed  in May, 1918, and at the time of hia re  election the Chilliwack electors had been  led ta believe that the government waa  just on tha eveing of starling on the big  Sumas Lake reclamation scheme. Since  than nothing at all had been done about  the matter. In two. yeara li nre the agricultural department had been literally  "shot to pieces." Tha deputy ministers  and many of the agricultural experts had  gone principally because salaries wars too  poor and scope too limited. Tnare wa*  now no organization in the department  and the minister waa merely a " lone soul  wandering." Although tha agricultural  production of the province stood at about  thirty-five millions a year the imports of  product which could be raised hare reached twenty millions. A situation such  as thia called for a strong policy. Going  into a discussion of the production in B.C.  during the paat year Mr. Jonea referred to  the fine fruit return obtained by the shippers of the South Okanagan, incidentally  paying a tribute to the splendid assistance  given in the harvesting season by the  women.  He touched on the matter of aeed pro  duclion, showing that although the gov.  emment had urged the farmera to grow  pure aeed the latter had now apparently  no market. In the interior water condi  tions had been helped by Providence not  by the department and the fruit farmera  could consider themselves lucky for the  season at least Seed grain furnished to  the growers by the department during the  paat,year had been of poor quality and  full of weeds. The speaker urged greater  encouragement towards the clearing of  land add advocated free stumping powder.  Ha alao proposed greater efforta in keeping down noxous weeds. He gave approval to the suggestion of Mra. Smith that  there be a closer inspection of meat for  aale. Dealing briefly with the live stock  industry he contrasted the situation in  Washington & Oregon with that prevailing  in this province. Little real assistance had  been given the livestock men in B.C. and  while it was true the government brought  in a few livestock last year (about 150),  they were all shipped north.  Mr. Jones charged that there waa considerable overlapping of "facials in connection with land and a���._. ulturc. He  told the House that the University of B.C.  waa doing more for the agricultural industry in the province just now than the  whole provincial department.  He twitted the Liberals about the land  settlement board, saying that the board  had started off with six men with a political pull and good salaries. They had  done nothing except fulfil their function  as part of .he machine. Now the board  had been reduced in number and Maxwell  Smith, the man who made Hon. Mr. Oli.  ver premfe? because be retired in hia stead  in the Dewdney riding, waa forced to resign as board chairman. He would spend  the rest of hia time writing pamphlets on  "How to'Farm" and "What to do when a  hen is moulting." Before leaving the subject the speaker outlined hia views as to  what such a board could really accomplish in connection with land development  He advised the government to accept  the recommendations from the Farmers'  Institutes Advisory Board with regard to  fighting the expreaa rates increaae and  combatting oriental ownerahip of land.  He asked when a new provincial horticulturist would be appointed,spoke strongly in favor of continuing a vigorous fight  against codlin moth and fire blight and  favored going on with the tuberculin testing of cattle.  Taking up the matter of public works,  Mr. Jonea remarked that about all the  King's speech said on the subject was that  necessary repaira had  been effected.   He  War Veterans Waot  Action re Expulsion  of Enemy Aliens  lhe city council has managed  last week to incur the displeasure  of the local War Veterans, by the  somewhat cursory treatment accorded a resolution forwarded from  Vancouver regarding the deportation of all alien enemies. The resolution in question, which waa  stated to have been carried unanimously by the city, council of Vancouver, called attention to an order  reported to have been iasued by  the Dominion Minister of Finance  directing the expulsion from Can-*  ada of all undesirable interned  aliens. The Vancouver council  maintained that all enemy aliens  were "undesirable" and that all  without distinction ahould be deported. A resolution requesting  all municipalities in the province  at well as the provincial government, to take similar action "in  order that at least the province of  B.C. may be free of a menace that  will sooner or later have a demoralizing effect upon the country and  militate against the rehabilitation  and repatriation of the thoutanda  of men who have suffered and bled  to make this country possible."  A copy of this resolution accordingly came up at rhe last meeting of the council for endorsation  Apparently they felt that Kelowna.  waa not very much concerned in  the matter for they simply ordered  the resolution to be filed.  The local veterans thought other-  wis*, (or .juVats special meeting oi  the Association held latt night, a  great deal of indignation wat expressed at "the negligence of the  city council in failing to deal with  a matter of such paramount importance to the returned men of  Kelowna and diatrict." It was felt  by the veterans that the action of  the council was a direct invitation  to all transient enemy (aliens in  western Canada to locate in Kelowna.  It was decided to forward a resolution to the council asking them  to immediately recontider the request of the city council of Vancouver,  H. Douglas, provincial factory  inspector, has been in town for a  few daya this week.

It is suggested that the Provincial Government borrow one million dollars, which aum would be  sufficient to put in first-class condition the main roads���approximately 400 miles. This would allow $2,500 for each and every  mile, but at there are many miles  which can be put in first-class condition for a much smaller sum, the  balance could be applied on parts  which must be macadamized.  The initial expenditure of this  sum of money would put our main  roadt in auch a condition that with  a little repair each year they would  last for many years. Under auch  a plan the annual appropriation!  by the Legislature could be spent  on the outlying sections which  should, if properly handled, keep  them in good shape, whereas at  present the money is spent a little  here and there, and does no permanent good.  To pay back this million dollars  it is suggested fhat every motor  vehicle pay a yeatlv licence of  $15. With the estimated number  of cart and trucks by January I tt,  1921, to be not less than 5,000,  this would yield a revenue of $75,-  000. Of this amount approximate  ly $60,000 would be required to  pay interest while the balance  $15,000 which, with the increate  in the number of motors would  annually become larger, could be  applied on the-linking fund, and  before the road is worn out thould  pav the whole debt.  Why should this scheme appeal  to the motoriat t The average mil  eage for each car per year ia 4500  miles. Tires are guaranteed to run  3,500 miles, but we will say they  will run an average of 4,300 miles.  Thia means a new set of tires each  year for every car, the average cost  of which is approximately $40  each or $160 for a set of fiur.  Experience hat proven that a tire  will run from ten to sixteen thousand miles on a hard surface road  but we will say 9,000 miles to be  on the safe side. This would mean  a saving of $60 a year to the motoriat on tires alone. For repairs  other than tires the average cott  per car ia estimated at $100 per  year which cost would be cut in  two with hard roads. The annual  average consumption of gas per  car is 300 gallons which would  easily be reduced 10 per cent, if  roadr were hard surfaced.  There would also be a saving of  oil to aay nothing of the peace of  mind the motoritt would derive.  For all thit the owner of a motor  vehicle would pay five dollars  more for hit annual licence, but in  return he would receive a dividend  Scientific Lecture in  Baptist Church  The Bible conference conducted  in the Baptist church by the Rev.  Howard W. Kellogg, waa brought  to a close latt evening. The meeting! have been well attended and  a steady increase was maintained  throughout, and the excellent addresses given by Dr. Kellogg have  earned the praise and appreciation  of all hit hearert.  A special evening for teacheri  and students wat held list Friday,  when Dr. Kellogg delivered an address on "Wheie did the flood  come from ? " expounding the first  and other chapters of Genesis. He  strongly defended what, he said,  the most able scientists call the  "Canopy Theory of Creation," viz.,  that the happenings recorded in  Cenesit I : I might have occupied  millions of years, trom verse 2 onwards describing the program for  the restoration of the world after  it had fallen into a condition "without form and void."  The speaker maintained that the  strata in the earth formation were  the condensations of previous gaseous matter which surrounded the  original globe in rings. As the  globe cooled off each ring condensed with the most awful cataclysm imaginable upon the earth,  as shown by the excavations of  fossil strata, in which have been  found fish having died in paroxysms of agony. The last ring  of matter to be condensed was water, but this did not happen until  after man had been placed upon  the earth. The giant canopy of  moisture hung over earth, hiding  the rays of the tun, and acting in  the capacity of a hot-house roof,  distributing and iiradiating heat,  causing an equable temperature to  exist from the poles to the equator,  This absence of the direct rays of  the sun, he said, was the answer  to all the difficulties regarding the  longevity of man, the absence of  clothing, and the peaceful nature  and herbivoroua habits of the animals.  The condensation of this vapor  came like the other strata, as an  overwhelming catastrophe, but so  timed aa to be the medium of God'a  judgment upon a corrupt people���  the "flood" referred to in the Scriptures.  Many expressions of cordial appreciation of his addresses were  tendered to Dr. Kellogg, who left  on the boat this afternoon for the  coast.

Kindly send me  I handkerchief, I hand watch, .1  hvmn A & M, I Bible as soon aa I  receive it, I will forward you a  gold ring and hope you like it, so  send me the sieze of your finger.  Compliments to all at home and  self, father, mother, sisters, brothers  send their complements to all.  Waiting for early reply,  1 am,  Your loving Iriend,  'Wellington Arthur.'"  As the letter was possibly not  couched in sufficiently affectionate  terms, the following was endorsed  on the back of it:���  "My Lovely Friend"  The letter is apparently intended  for former Patrol Leader DuMoulin, now attending R.M.C.

This is being done in  many ways, such as by overlapping the work, by co-relating the  work, or by reducing the extent of  the work to be covered.  We have received aome liters  ture on the Thrift Movement. We  feel it our duty to attempt tu educate the children into habits of  thrift. Consequently we are starting a little campaign in the school  and we hope the parents wjll encourage the children in the scheme.  1 am no believer in asking the  children to raise money simply to  save the pockets of the ratepayers  hut in this case we have an educational value of the highest power  as our aim ; namely, the establishment of habitt of thrift in the mindt  of the children.  a        a  a  Mrt.

It is a very rare thing for us to  have a parent visit the school except with a complaint. Why should  that be so ? Parents often perhaps  think that they are intruding on the  work. That is not really so, for  the children like to see visitors,  and that added stimulus is all for  their good. Show-days are not  much use for the purpose I mean.  We want parents to see their pupils at work���at their business.  The added influence that the teacher has over the child because it  has seen him talk on equal terms  with father or mother is far ahead  in value what it cost the parent in  trouble.

Clifford Renfrew left Tuesday  for Victoria. He was accompanied  as far as Sicamous by his father,  Mr. G. C Renfrew.  Mr. Newbold left Saturday on a  trip to England via the Corsican,  which leaves Canada on the   18th.  The scarcely of vacant houses in  town seems likely to have the effect  of inducing a little revival in building this year.  Mayor D. W. Sutherland and  Mrs. Sutherland left Monday for a  visit to Vancouver. They will be  awav a couple of weeks.  Mrs. C. Reid and two daughters  accompanied by Miss Flower lett  Friday on their journey to the Old  Country. They are to sail on the  15th via the "Tunisian."  Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Thompson  and family desire to express their  appreciation and thanks for the  kind sympathy of their many  friends in their recent bereavement.  Rumors that the ban on dancing  is to be lifted before very long  have prompted the Ladies' Hospital Aid to announce that thev are  preparing to go ahead with their  "Masquerade Dance" just as soon  as permission ran be obtained.  Announcement was made last  week of the standing committees of  the provincial legislature appointed for the present session. It is  interesting to note that on four of  the most important committees in  the house, those ot Public Accounts,  Railways, Agriculture, and Municipal, the name of our local member,  Mr. J. W. Jones, appears.  The milking machine is one of  those new-fangled inventions which  has probably taken longer than  most things to find favor with the  farmer. It has undoubtedly demonstrated ita practicability, however, and is bound to get there  eventually. Two outfits have been  installed in this district already this  year, one at the K.L.O. Ranch and  the other at the barn of Mr. Thos.  Murray, while Mr. S. Munson has  had one in operation for some time  past. No doubt others will follow  in due course.  Mr. E. C. Weddell returned laat  weekend from a visit to the coast.  Mr. J. Redman was a visitor in  town over the week-end. Mr.  Redman represented the B.C. Veterans Weeklv, a live little weekly  paper owned by the returned men,  and published at the coast.  Mr. J. Childerhose, of Chilliwack,  representing the B.C. distributors  of the Hinman milking machine, of  which Mr. J. C. Stockwell is the  local agent, has been in town during the week in connection with an  installation at the farm of Mr. T.  Murray.  The Great War Veterans have  rented the lower floor of the Royal  Hotel for use as club rooms, and  are moving over this week. With  the increasing membership as the  boys return, the quarters occupied  up to the present have become al-  togetner too small, and it has been  evident for some time that a move  was desirable. The regular meeting will be held in the new rooms  Saturday night, when the officers  will be nominated for the annual  meeting.  No little consternation has been  caused this week by the sudden  shutting down of all evaporators,  including the local plant. This was  due to unexpected instructions  from the government, on contracts  for whom the plants were working,  to cease operations as quickly as  possible. No reason was assigned  for the instructions and pending  further communication nothing  more is known regarding the sit  uation. The local plant has been  running steadily on potatoes for  many weeks past, and in addition  to having a big stock of the evaporated product on hand, has several  thousand tons of potatoes stored  at different poii.ta which were calculated to occupy the plant well  into the spring. As Armstrong  and Vernon are affected in the  same way, and have also still larger  stocks of potatoes awaiting evaporation, it will be realized that the  situation is one of great seriousness  ANNOUNCEMENTS  English church service will be  conducted at East Kelowna school  house, Sunday next at 3. p.m.  The Kelowna Poultry Association  is holding its annual meeting Thursday, February 27th at 7.30 p.m. in  the Board of Trade room.  A regular meeting of the Benvoulin Red X society will be held  at the home of Mrs. Fred Munson,  on Thurs., Feb. 20th. All members  and others having Red X supplies  please bring these to the meeting.  Next Sunday morning in the  Baptist church the Rev. W. Arnold  Bennett will preach on "The Battle  of the Two l's." At the evening  service hia topic will be "The Counsel of Mr. Worldly Wiseman." The  Sacrament of the Lord's Supper will  be administered at the eyening  service.  All lovers of animals are again  reminded of the meeting which  takes place Saturday afternoon at  2 o'clock in Mr. Rattenbury's office  to reorganize the local branch of  the Society for the prevention of  cruelty to animals.

On a plea of economy the  public works minister had cut off many  officials and then immediately embarked  into a new scheme of road engineers. In  most cases these engineers were doing  clerical work, being almost completely  taken up with attending to the mass of  pettv detail wanted by Viotoria instead of  getting out over the country and looking  after its needs. But the road foremen had  increased in number over the old days  despite the lessening in expenditures. In  his own district, ho pointed out, there  were now five road foremen, where formerly there were three. Autos for government officials had also greatly increased.  Farmers1 taxes had jumped 100 per cent.,  but road work fell 40 per cent, and the  trunk roads and wharves were getting  into serious condition. Work was being  done at the wrong time. He aaid that the  right time was in the fall and winter when  traffic was lighter and labor more plentiful. '  He took exception to tha fact that although the South Okanagan appropriation  was $21,700 last year only $18,860 had  been spent although the condition of the  roads cried out for more expenditure in  repairs.  He wondered what the government's  proposed million dollar emergency fund  forecasted. Did it mean an election or  soup kitchens? Was it a sort of method  of doling out charity to the soldiers >  In the speaker's opinion the time had  come to open up public works, provide  as much employment as possible, and in  this way attend to the immediate needs of  the home-coming veterana thus allaying  the threatening labor unrest. He urged  more attention to and better work on the  principal roads. With thia went the completion of the transprovincial highway so  necessary if B.C. was to reach its rightful  place in respect to tourist traffic. Instead  of having a big emergency appropriation  he thought a decision should he reached  now on the public worka to be done.  Mr. Jones expressed his pleasure with  the Ottawa and Victoria announcements  that the Kamloops-Okanagan line of the  C.N.R. wo ild be started thia year. In his  opinion the line would do valuable service to the country in opening up a new  district at Grand Prairie and as well would  provide Okanagan settlers not now near  means of railway communication with  greatly improved transportation facilities.  He was glad to note the references in the  King's speech, he said, to this subject,  particularly in view of the keen interest  taken in the matter in his home town  whose citizens had long awaited the com  ing of the railway. Okanagan interests  had been on the point of sending a dele  gation to Ottawa when the welcome word  came.  The King's speech also noted, he said,  the increased prosperity in the province  due to shipbuilding, lumbering, mining,  and agriculture. Bank clearings had risen  and population was flowing westward,  What the speech did not tell the membera  was why taxation had not been reduced,  why the coat of civil government had gone  up, why the appointment of the civil service commissioner had been forced upon  the government, why the prohibition commissioner did not have a proper aet of  books, why he waa not arrested at once on  a breach of public trust, why scandalous  conditions were permitted at the Boya  Industrial Home, and why the minister of  lands had not settled the irrigation troubles  in the dry belt.  A review of the educational situation  was given by the 3c uth Oknnagan member. The condition in the schools today  was serious on account of the loss of time  due to the flu epidemic. Speaking of the  training of teachers, he said their profession should be made a life work and no  a stepping stone. Education ahould bear  some relation to the life the child would  lead when he had completed his school  course. Attention should be paid to the  training and educating of soldiers killed or  disabled.    He strongly advocated closer  LOST  LOST, Dark bay gelding. White star and  white off hind sock.

His forecast of a  church organization which included a library, reading-room, kitchen  gymnasium, down town rest room,  he said, might be called a vision,  but it could easily be realized if  all would co-operate as they should.  Mr. J. N. Thompson was announced to speak on the "budget",  but his remarks dealt but briefly  wilh church expenses, but formed  an excellent sermon on the plain  duty of all to shoulder the financial  burden of church work in the  same spirit as other household expenses were met. The church was  doing a specialized service in the  moral training of the young, to  which all should contribute.  Mr. Ball paid a very high tribute  to the faithful work of the Rev. E.  D. Braden, not only as pastor of  the church, but as a citizen, and  stated that it was desired to get an  expression of opinion as to the desirability of inviting him for a further period. The burst of enthusiastic approval which greeted this  announcement left no doubt ai to  the desire of the congregation and  all present.  In thanking the congregation for  their appreciation of his services,  Mr. Braden mentioned gratefully  the ready assistance which was  given him on all hands in the work  of the church.  Mrs. Faulkner spoke on "Women's Work in the Church," and  the great enlightenment and improvement which had come in  recent years in thia respect.  Principal Gordon of the Public  School and superintendent of the  Sunday school, gave an address on  "The Church and the Child." No  service in the church or out of it  would ever yield such results as  service to the child, and no church  was fulfilling itt duty which neglected this service. Children were the  men and women of the near future,  and we should do our utmost to  guide them into the right path.  Mr. J. A. Bigger also spoke briefly on the work of the "United Sun.  day School, its Aims and Needs."  Interspersed with the addresses  were songs by Mrs. Braden, Mrs. J.  Harvey, Mr. D. McFarlane, violin  selections by Mr. Diury Pryce, and  an opening part song by the choir.
