 \C0sVXBXsiay}  XU\0tem  VOL. IX.   NO. 31.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY. 1UNE 21, 1917.-4 PAGES  $1-30 Per Annum  City Council Holds  Short Session  Assessor Hands In 1917'  Assessment Roll  There was a brief special meeting of the city council Friday last  chiefly for the purpose of formally  accepting return of the assessment  roll for tlie year and arranging for  the holding of a Court of Revision  which 'will receive and consider  any complaints regarding same.  The Court will sit in the Council  Chamber on Monday, July 23rd,  1917. at 10a.m.  A letter was received from the  Okanagan Telephone Co. asking  the council to have the electric  light wires at certain street intersections raised. At these points  the electric wires cross the telephone wires and the company  desired to have a distance of five  feet between the two.  The council, however, decided  that with the information at hand  and in vievv of the fact that the  city's wires were strung prior to  the Telephone Co's system being  installed, and also as the provincial inspector of electrical energy  made no mention of the matter,  they did not feel justified in taking  any action.  An application from one of the  city staff for two weeks' leave of  absence brought up the question  of holidays, and a resolution was  passed that " all permanent employees of the city who had not  yet been granted two weeks holiday during the current year be  granted two weeks' holiday leave  without pay, they to provide suitable substitutes to be paid by the  city.  Temporary Loan By-Law No.  231 was finally passed.  Juniors Must Not Drive  The police have lately been  draw inn attention to the reckless manner in which, drivers of  automobiles and other vehicles,  but particularly Uie former, are  in the habit of rounding the  busy corners of Pendozi and  Water streets. Almost invariably the car comes close up to  the corner, the desire being apparently to cover the least possible ground. Even though this  is not Broadwffv. or Picadillv  Circus, or Hastings street, the  adherence to some kind of regulations is necessary if serious  accidents are to be avoided.  The police are keeping a lookout for the worst offenders  Another common infringement  of the law is in allowing rouug  lioys under legal age to drive  cars to their own danger and  that of all others using the  roads. According to the aot no  person under the age of seventeen years shall drive a car. .  BIRTHS  to thc  "BLACK-On June the 7th  wife of W. Black, a son.  CAMPBELL-On June 7th, to the  wife of Rev.

Packer, another of the  172nd boys to lose his life in the  great struggle. It is Some twenty-  four or five years since Pte. Packer  came to Kelowna from Bardadoes  in the West Indies, long before Kelowna as a city was thought of, and  he has taken part in many of the  earlier activities of the district. He  was one of the first lo take up  ranching at Okanagan Mission, and  though he sold the original place  he was still, st the time of his  death, owner of a residence on the  lake shore there. He was one of  original paitners in the firm of  Crowley & Co., butchers, though he  sold out his connection several  years ago. At the time of enlistment held the post of game warden,  which he was well qualified to fill.  He was very keen at all forms of  sport, particularly iquaiir, being at  one time the holder of the Ladies  Sailing cup in connection with the  regatta.  He was well known and a general favourite amongst the elder  residents of the district, and his  loss will be keenly felt.  He was a batchelor and had no  family connections in the neighbourhood, hia people being mostly  residents in the West Indies and in  England.  Correspondence  The Editor, Kelowna Record.  Dear Sir, ���May we bring to the  attention of your readers the lact  that the Kelowna Farmers'Institute  needs members and also needs  subscriptions in order to carry on  successfully. Last year our membership was 161, but so many  members h;.ve gone overseas or  otherwise left the district, that our  numbers as* greatly reduced. The  Provincial Government give* a  capitation grant on all membership  subscriptions paid by the end of  June. These subscriptions can be  paid to the secretary any afternoon  at the Board of Trade Rooms or to  any of the directors of the Institute.  The Farmers' Institute is trying  to serve the district in many ways;  to assist in overcoming the labour  shortage we have organized a  Local Labour Exchange, which will  'be useiul in so far as farmers and  others make use of it. Each year  we arrange fruit parking schools,  pruning schools and crop competitions and assist in organizing  meetings in the interests of agriculture and we feel that our usefulness  will be in proportion to the amount  of interest-and support given to the  Institute. It is hoped thnt old  members will renew their subscriptions before the end of this month  and also help by pursuaciing new  members to join.

NEW FISHERY REGULATIONS  HIT KICKANINNY FISHING  If some new amendments to the  B. C. Fisheries Regulations issued  a few weeks ago are to be taken  literally (and we understand they  are) the time honoured sport of  "kickaninny" fishing is to become  a thing of the past.  For years past it has been the  annual custom for men and boys  to hie themselves to the creeks  during the run of these tasty little  fish, and paddling in the shallow  water to scoop them out with nets.  Not a few families have been able  in this way, and by afterwards salting them down in crocks and  barrels to lay aside quite a considerable addition to the food supply  for thc winter mouths.  The favourite method for catching them has been for a party of  three or four to co-operate, one to  hold a big net generally made of  small mesh wire netting, while the  others chase the shoals of fish  into it with sticks. Small bo. b have  become expert in the use of long-  handled "gaff," a sharp hook made  of heavy wire tied to a long stick.  Some people have even gone to the  length of damming across a narrow  place in the creek thus making lhe  capture a practical certainty.  All these methods, according to  the new regulations are declared to  be illegal, and to render those  practising them liable to heavy  penalties.  According to instructions received by inspectors the regulations  are to be strictly enforced.  While all these implements are  very clearly prohibited in the notices posted up, the Canadian  Gazette of April 14th, 1917, contains the following especial reference to the "little Red Fish or  so-call��d Kohanee," which is what  we call " Kickaninny."

A gill net is to be not more  than two hundred yards long (l)  and with a mesh of not less than  three inches extension measure,  while a drag seine is to be not  longer than one hundred yards  and with mesh not less than two  inches extension measure. The  licence fee in each case is to be  one dollar.  As no one possesses any such  nets here, or is likely to procure  them, the thing resolves itself into  this, that Kickaninnies can not be  caught except with a rod and line  in the usual way, and this is the  interpretation placed upon it by  Mr Geo. Gartrell, of Summerland,  rvho is Fisheries inspector for the  district.  This sounds like an absurdity,  because anyone will tell you that  Kickaninnies will not oblige by  swallowing a baited book, and  that one might as well try to catch  them with a lariat as with a rod  and line.  It is not generally known, however, that this is denied, and indeed it is not in accordance with  Mr. Garlrell's own experience for  no longer ago than last Thursday  he saw an Indian on Nicola lake  catching Kickaninnies with ordinary trout hooks.  Mr. Gartrell states that he was  naturally interested and asked to  be shown how it was done. The  method of baiting was explained  to him and in a very short time be  had caught some fifteen himself.  ���And what do you think the bait  was? Mr. Kickaninny surely must  be a dainty feeder when he is  tempted only by such invalid diet  as���ante' ��ggs .wrapped in wild  rose leaves I The Indians tie a  short piece of thread to the hook.  Then they take a few eggs drop  them into a rose petal, which is  folded up, and the whole wrapped  around with string and so attached  to the hook, which is of course  concealed within this egg sand'  wich. If anyone should try the  experiment here we would like to  know the result.  This unexpected prohibition of  a custom years old will undoubtedly be resented. Indeed it ia difficult to see the precise object of it.  On the other hand it is claimed  that the wholesale methods used in  catching the fish at spawning time  are rapidly reducing their number*  It would help matters perhaps to  hear the views of some of the. old  timers on this point.  Orders by command for week  ending 30th of June 1917.  DUTIES: Orderly patiol for  week, Eagles; nextfor duty, Beavers.  PARADES: The combined  troop will parade at the club room  on Friday the 29th of June, at 7.15  p.m. in full uniform with staves.  This will be the laat parade before  camp and all scouts must report as  to their equipment.  The patrol leaders and seconds  will meet on Saturday, the 30th  instant to make final arrangements  for camp, the time of meeting will  be announced later.  Every scout in the troop has  now been.given a list of what ia  required to take to camp, and if  you are needing any further equipment get the same immediately  because unfortunately all icout  material is rapidly advancing in  price.  We have a sample of the jaarkey  canteen at the scout master's office  which you should see before ordering the regular billy can.  -K>-  Joseph Begin, the editor of a  French-Canadian journal is advocating the sep-rration of Quebec from tbe confederation.  There will be three competitions  at camp for which prizes will be  given ; first, for the beat 10 pictures,  second, for the best rough sketch  rnap of' the site arid third for the  best diary of the camp. 'The map  will be accepted for the first class  test, and every scout must keep a  camp diary "whether he proposes  to enter the "competition or not.  To decide'the colour patrol for the  year, a great deal will depend upon  the standing of each patrol in  camp. There will of course, be  the usual daily tent and kit inspection. Last year the Wolves outshone the other patrols in this  respect, but it does not necessarily  follow they can repeat this year.  We have decided to have a cook  for the whole camp, instead of each  patrol cooking for itself and have  endeavoured to get in touch with  Sam Sue who made a name for  himself laat year. He is ranchinc  at Okanagan Centre though and  may not be able to getaway. What  are. we going to do then? "Wanted  one good camp cook."   *  We have received a,very nice  letter from Colonel Perry of the  B.C. Horse, in which he kindly  agrees to lend us some tents, and  to Kelp us in any way he can, also  giving us his' best wishes for  successful camp.  Summerland troop are giving  their annual entertainment on Friday of this week 22nd instant, and  through A.S.M. Harris have given  us all a hearty invitation to be  present. If they were only a little  nearer to us we would go down  there in force, but it's a long, long  trail.  ���' We were beginning to think our  kit bags were hardly large enough  to hold all our troubles when we  heard some one else had located  our proposed Cedar Creek campsite ahead of us, but they will probably be kind and obliging enough  to move a little bit further off.

It it the most  inexpensive car to drive.  20 to 25 miles on a gallon  of gasoline is an every-day  occurence. 33 miles is frequently reported by Ford  owners. Yearly repair expenses of less than one dollar  are not unusual. The car is  light in weight, and tires give  more mileage on a Ford than  on any other car.  You can buy a Ford for  yourself and one for your wife  for the price of one car at  $1000. You can run both  Fords at about the same-expense as for one large, heavier car.  You can always sell a 'used'  Ford at a good price. You  have to accept a big reduction for a " used "* larger car.  Go and take a ride in the  1917 model. See. how comfortable it is.

Please'note this.  Owing to the extraordinary rise in the price, of butter  parchment (which has gone up over 100 per cent) we  have been reluctantly obliged to raise our prices slightly.  Nearly all this paper was previously manufactured in Belgium, and needless to say tbis supply has been entirely  cut off.

There  is a tendency at the present time  to purchase indiscriminately from  Departmental Houses, and while  there may be a saving in some  cases manv local houses like our  own have large stocks purchased  before the war where the quality  artel price is much better than that  of the Catalogue houae. This refers particularly to Carpets. Rugs,  Linoleum, Blankets, Eiderdown  Quilts, Pillows, Mattresses, Crockery, &c, and in many cases to new  goods; take for instance, Wall  Paper. Probably two-thirds of the  wall paper used in the district  comes from Departmental Stores  at an advance of from 40 to 100  per cent, over the local prices.  'The purchaser may argue that it  is difficult to make a comparison  of quality. In many cases this is  true, but there are many staple  lines which are identically the same  for instance, 30-inch oatmeal paper. Let us take a specific case and  apply it to this grade of paper. If  you had a room 10 by 12 feet to  paper your requirements cr order  in each case would be as follows  From the Local Store  4 Double Rolls Wall of 16 yarde each  **75c $3.00  1 Double Roll Border, at $1.25  $1.25  Total $4.25  From the Catalogue House  6 Single Rolls Wall of 6 yards each,  at 28c  $2.24  2 Single Rolls Border of 8 yards each.

The same applies to the cheaper  qualities of paper, and in order to  give the Catalogue Houses every  advantage we will compare their  7c paper with our 20c and in this  case the cost is as follows:���  Local Price  6 Double Rolls Wall of 16 yards esch.  at20c  $1.20  I Double Roll Border, 16 yds., *t40c     .40  Total $1.60  Catalogue Price  12 Single Rolls Wall, of 6 yards each,  at7c  ������     -W  2 Single Rolls Border, 8 yards esch,  st 5c per yard      ���*>  $1.64  Express on 6 lbs. of paper   $1.05  Total $2.69  In this case the latter price is 70  per cent, higher than the local. The  apparent cheapness of the Catalogue prices is effected by reducing price of the hanging or wall  paper and charging an excessive  price for the border which in many  cases exceeds the cost of the wall.  We keep catalogues on hand  and invite a careful comparison of  prices in every line of our many  departments, and by so doing we  are satisfied that our customers can  effect a large saving during the  year.

The Famous Circus of  Cooper Bros. Coming  Cooper Bros. Shows are coming to Kelowna next Tuesday  June i6th. There, is always  something about a tented exhibition in the wav of amusement  that is attractive, and thissho.v  is well spoken of as being far  above the average in pleasing its  patrons. No other show has  such perfectlv trained wild animals, and Ihcv are well worth  seeing.  Everybody loves to see  horses and ponies. More especially does this applv to Uie lades who, with the little ones, are  (the most loval patrons Thev  are assured of the highest form  of entertainment, free from anything at all calculated to offend  Ithe most sensitive. In addition  Ho the trained animal features,  Cooper Bros, have the very best  of lady and gentleman perform  *rs.     The performing elephants  and rare wild beasts, Banty  Bunty, the cute little baby elephant, the good-night pony, together with the many prancing  monies in military drills and  marches are especially pleasing  to the little ones. The funny  clowns, the feature acts bv the  world's greatest gymnast, Mile.  Roberts, in fier death-defying  act in mid-air, the like of wlii-ii  has never been witnessed, will  long live in memory when other  shows have faded awtay into for-  "���etfulness. Don't fail to see the  irand street review. Two com-  olete performances daily.  German airships made a raid on  the east and couth-east coaat < f  England early Sunday morning.

(Continusd from Pass 1.1  ers along the banks cf the creek  should do more ior their own  protection in some similar \,uy.  to the people of the loweri'iasel  who had formed ditching ana  dyking districts, ilx. Joins  said he was really alarm-id at  the situation, as he fait sure  that some day the creek was going to burst its bounds and  sweep through mc .���..iury and  the city. He -referred to the  probable visits of this Hon.  Messrs. Patullo and King, and  urged that no opportunity be  lost of making strong representation to the goveinmen: on the  matter.  Mr. Jones also referred to the  shortage of labor in the district.  The department of agriculture  had made arrangements to have  help sent from the coast for the  fruit picking about the end of  July, but there was a want of  farm help at the present time  for weeding, thinning, and haying. He had thought it possible  that a number of Indians might  be secured from the Colvillc reservation ih Washington, as had  been done a few years ago when  hops were grown at the Coldstream. Several acres of oni  ions had already been plowed up  and it seemed altogether impossible eo handle the matter. He  suggested writing to the Indian  agent, Mr. J. JL Brown, of  Summerland.  Mr. Hereron said that the  worst of getting Indians was  that farmers had to provide for  their horses, as an Indian could  not move without nis horse.  Mr. T. Morrison, Rutland,  said he had secured three Indian  helpers from over the lake for  haying, and was hoping to get  more. Mr. Morrison also took  the opportunity to speak at  same length on the necessity of  increasing the grain production  of the district. He had been  struck by the hundreds of acres  of vacant land which should be  raising grain, so that Kelowna  might again become g grain exporting instead of a grain importing district. The farmers  were anxious to do this, but  could not finance it, and he believed the business men should  assist the farmers in this respect. He also pleaded for more  cooperation in irrigation.

The merchant who conducts, his business according to the method of the last century is not  giving his customers the service they are entitled  to. The spirit of tlie new century is to do more  than to merely turn goods over at a profit. It is  to really earn that profit by giving real service,  accommodation and reliable advice. The modern  merchant must know his goods thoroughly and  what is best adapted to every household requirement.  That class of merchant invariably advertises.  That is the one sure test of his being ab'reast of  lhe times.  SGIC^S  3VN0ICATS.  nmmi  BigHoliuayat  Kelowna, B C  on the occasion of the visit of  COOPER  BROS.'
