 ^o^cwaOvf*^  VOL XI.  NO. 42  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY. SEPTEMBER 4, I9I9.-4 PAGES  1130 Per Annum  City Ha; Acquire  Truck For  Board of Works  Would Be Great Help in Street  Work - Spark Arrester ia  Expensive Undertaking  Should the proposal made by  Aid Mantle at Tueaday'a meeting  of the city council be carried out,  the city will in the near futufe be  in the market for the purchase of  an auto truck. While realizing  that such a move waa impossible  at the preaent moment, Aid. Mantle  wished the suggestion to be placed  on record ao that it might not be  loat aight of when the next eatimatea were being prepared. He  believed that much greater effici-  ciency could be secured in afreet  and aidewalk repair work and the  other operations of the Board of  Worka if aome quicker method  were available of transporting men  and materiala to where they were  needed. The truck could alao be  made uaeful in the aervice of the  Light and Water department.  Aid. Duggan expressed himself  aa very much in favor of the plan.  A report waa aubmitted from  chief engineer McMillan regarding  the propoaal emanating from the  Board of Trade to put spark arresters on the amoke stacks of the city  in order to lessen the danger of fire.  To equip the power house chimney  with such an appliance, the report  atated, would coat about $375, but  as a reault of the lessening of the  draft it would cause, an additional  boiler would have to be installed.  In view of the heavy expense  which would thus be involved the  council decided to drop the matter.  Another matter discussed at conaiderable length was the proposal  to provide "silent policemen" or  light atandaida at the intersection  of the main thoroughfares in the  business section in order to better  regulate street traffic. Aid. Ratten,  bury reported that a two-light  standard would coat about $109  and a three-light $ 120. No action  was taken.  A petition waa read from eight  residents of Woodlawn for the extension of the water aystem to  Cadder Avenue. Thia was referred  to the Light and Water committee.  A letter waa read from the  Governor General's secretary advising that the date fixed for the  Prince of Wales' visit to Kelowna  waa Sept. 30th. The exact hour  would be communicated later.  A communication from Kam  loops city council referred to the  taxation of property owned by  municipalitiea outside their corporate limits, -which property it was  contended ahould be exempt from  taxation.  ..The Dominion Air Board submitted a number of regulations regarding the flight of airplanes over  towns and cities.  Aid. Meikle aubmitted a recommendation that in view of the increase in locsl building operations,  the building inspector's salary be  raisee to $15 per month.  Aid. Mantle "further auggeated  that the police magistrate's salary  be increaaed to the amount granted prior to tha war reductions.  This wss done, the city clerk also  being given a slight increaae to  comply with the ssme principle.  A letter submitted by the Mayor  from the provincial superintendent  of landa dealt with the application  of the Growera' Exchange to' a  renewal of their lease of the foreshore adjoining the C.P.R. wharf.  The council were unanimously of  the opinion that it was in the pub-  v lie interest to oppose the granting  of such a lease.  Benvoulin Notes  Mra. DeMara returned home  from Calgary on Monday afternoon'a boat. Her mother, Mrs.  Fyoie, returned with her and in.  tends to spend a few weeka in the  Sunny Okanagan.  Miaa Aimed A.

The Benvoulin United Farm  vVomen met at the Manse on  Thuraday laat The next meeting  will be on Thuraday afternoon,  Sept. 11th.  Real eatate in Benvoulin seems  to, be booming. Mr. T.

Miaa Ballantyne arrived this week  to take up her duties as teacher  of the Okanagan School.  Mr. and Mrs. George Gartrell  from Summerland made a ahort  visit at the home of Mr. and Mra.  E.A. Day.  Dance Opens Packing  House at Westbank  A new packing houae has just  been completed by the B.C. Grow,  ers at Westbank, and waa opened  thia week by a dance at which  about aixty people were preaent  Thia event waa made possible by  the good smooth finished floor  with which the company haa equipped the new building, making it an  excellent place for dances and  other amusements when not in use  for packing purposes. The build,  ing will, in fact, be a great asset to  the community during the winter  months, and will no doubt be  largely in demand.  Practically the whole of the diatrict waa repreaented at the dance,  which waa a very enjoyable affair,  The muaic waa provided by Mra.  Moon and Mra. Steele at the piano,  and Miaaea Dana'and Buchanan  with the violins. Ice cream and  refreshments were served during  the evening.  The city tax sale held Tuesday  morning in the council chamber  excited little interest. The sale had  been postponed from Monday owing to the holiday. Only about  nine lota were aold to outside purchasers, the balance of the property falling to the city. The total  realized waa a little oyer nine hun  dred dollars.  Secretary Daniela haa accepted  the invitation of Canadian officials  to viait Victoria, B. G, on Septem  ber II.. The navy department announced that Mr. Daniela ana  Admiral Hugh Rodman.command  er of the Pacific fleet would make  the trip on tha New York.  Valley Lacrosse Games  The Kelowna lacrosse team accepted an invitation to play at  Penticton on Labor Day, and met  the-Penticton team in what is said  waa the firat lacrosse game there  for three or four years. The result  waa a tie���2-2.  Some intereat haa been diaplayed  in the valley in the match arranged  between the Vancouver Athletic  Club lacrosse team and the Armstrong club, which took place on  the 1st at Armstrong. The boys  of the north end of the valley have  shown exceptional form throughout the paat season and though  the) did not actually beat the crack  players from the coast, yet they  made a good showing, the score  ending 6-4 in favor of Vancouver,  To-day a further attempt is being  made to vanquish the visitors in a  match at Vernon, in which they  will be met by a team picked from  the best players ot the different  valley clube.  Allies Threaten to  Reoccupy Rhine Bank  German   Arrangement   With  Austria is Breach of Part  of Peace Treaty  The supreme council of the peace  conference decided on Tuesdsy to  send a note in forceful terms to the  German government pointing out  the contradiction with the Versailles treaty of the provision in  the new German constitution providing for the repreaentation of  Austria in the German Reicharath.  The council demands the suppression of the article within two  weeks, declaring that otherwise the  Allies will be compelled to undertake a further occupation of the  left bank of the Rhine.  Empire's War Record  of Enlistments  The report of the War Cabinet  for 1918 summarizes aa follows the  Empire's war record:  The strength of the regular army  reserve and territorial forcea on  August 4. 1914, waa 733,514.

Tranquille Publishes  Monthly Journal  We have been favored this week  with a copy of a new contemporary which came into existence last  month, and which is headed "The  Tranquillian." As will be guessed  by the name, it is published at  Tranquille, B.C., and its purpose,  according to the editor, "is that we  may help to provide the general  public with some knowledge of  tuberculosis, ita menace to future  generation*, and the mean* by  which that menace may be overcome."  There are aix pages, well printed  with a good assortment of advertisements, together with articles on  miscellaneous subjects, and more  peraonal notes relative to the aani-  torium and its inmates. " The  Tranquillian" will appear monthly  priced at 10 cents, snd no doubt  will soon gain a large liat of sub  scribers.  The British destroyer Vittoria  was torpedoed and sunk in the  Baltic Sea Saturday, August 30, the  Admiralty announces. Eight of  her crew are mining.  It is unofficially stated that  Admiral Jellicoe recommends that  the Australian fleet shall consist of  eight battlecruisei*. His plans contemplate an annual expenditure of  $5,000,000.  The announcement is made in  Vancouver by the Dominion Canning Co. that, on account of its  inability to secure augar, it will be  obliged to atop the manufacture of  1'am. Sould the asms step be taken  >y other firms in the aame or kindred line*, an immediate rice in the  price of jam is to be expected and  it is further hinted thst the sweetened brands of canned milk will  similarly become dearer.  New Express Tariffs  Now In Operation  Some Rates are Increased and  Others Lowered - Fruit Rate  is Not Afiec.ed  In accordance with the judgment  of the board of railway commissioners, the tariffs of the expreaa  companira have been reviaed, effective September lat. What is  known aa the "block ayatem" haa  been introduced, whereby lhe Dominion is divided into blocks in a  aimilar way to the method in uae  across the line. The effect of the  change will be to increase the rates  in most cases, especially the ratea  to eastern points. In some caaea,  however, substantial reductiona  will reault  For instance, the former expreaa  rate to Vancouver from Kelowna  haa been $3.50 per 100 M; it will  now be $2,40. On the other hand  the rate to Toronto jumps from  $8.50 to $11.65 and Montreal from  $7 to $11.80. Local ratea ara affected in a aimilar manner. The rate  to Vernon jumps from 75c to $1.20  while that to Penticton drops from  $1 to 90c. To placea without a  delivery aystem a further reduction  of 15c is made.  No changea have '.een made in  the "commodity ta.iffs," ao that  shipments of fruit, cream, &tc���which  carry special rates, will remain aa  before.  Need Additional  High School'Teacher  The large increase in ths num'  ber of pupils who will attend the  High School this year haa embarrassed the achool'authorities somewhat as they were unprepared for  such a large increase. A new teacher is required immediately and  in the meantime a portion of the  pupila are only able to attend half  time.   o  Miaa Isolde Menges and Mr.  Drury Pryce are playing the alow  movement from the Bach Double  Concerto at Knox united church on  Sunday evening.  Regular passenger and express  business, with which the American  Express Co. has made a working  agreement, has been inaugurated  between London and Paria. The  air bus, carrying fifteen passengers,  will make tri-wrekly trips, the fare  being $60. Two passenger aeroplanes will make daily trips at $ 100  I per passenger. The time schedule  | permits a Londoner to transact  buaineaa in Paria and be back in  I time for dinner th* same evening.  Mixed Rowing Fours  Show Sporting Spirit  An event of conaiderable inter-  ter to those interested in aquatics  took place last evening, when once  again two of the racing shells were  floated and manned by mixed  crewa I  r It will be remembered that when  this race waa pulled at the regatta,  the Seon boat came aecond, whilst  the third boat containing the Misses Cooper and Measrs. Frost and  Hicks, dropped out of the race with  a diaabled rudder. Owing to thia  stroke of bad fortune, the Seons  refused to accept the prizea until  such time as the race could be  decided by actual rowing, and thia  event took place laat evening.  The race started from the lumber company'a wharf, and waa to  finish at the grandatand, the Seona  uaing the boat their rivals had at  the regatta, but at the word go the  gallant craft made a bee-line for  Manhattan'and only after a long  detour arrived at the stand, though  verv little behind the others who  were counted winners. It seemed  rather unfair (o give them the decision, ao after a little discussion  once more the boata were rowed  to the atarting point, where Mr.  H. G. M. Wilaon gave the signal.  Thia time a more or leaa atraight  courae waa rowed and the Seons  arriving first left little doubt as to  which were the better crew. They  pulled a long powerful stroke  which proved very effective, whilst  their rivals, putting in a faster time  were apt to get ragged. The event,  put on in the way it was, ahowed  a good spirit of sportsmanship, and  we understand will be followed by  a sumptuoua repast to be given in  honor of the occasion.  Rutland News  Musical Novelty Coming  Elmer's Original Jazz Band and  Peerless Dsnce Orchestra is the  lateat attraction to come to Kelowna. They will appear at the Morrison Hall tomorrow (Friday) night  At the present day the dance seems  to reign supreme over all other  forms of amusement and with this  idea in mind this aggregation of  "ringing, dancing, gyrating, dippy  mad Kings of Syncopation" were  organized with the sole purpose in  view to afford the dancing public  to hear real jazz muaic and enthuse  over their harmonious singing and  mad antics aa well as participate  in the big show themselves by  dancing anything from the "hoe-  down" to the "Shimmie".  Mrs. Dudgeon and her daughter  left for Calgary last week.  ., On Friday, Sept. 12th, a lawn  aocial is to be given at the  home of Mra.

The September meeting of the  Rutland Women'a Institute will not  be held as most of the members  are too busy to attend. All membera are aaked to leave a donation  for the Special Comforts-Fund  with Mrs. Hardie at the Rutland  atore.  Last Sunday'a storm waa accompanied by heavy hail which did  aome damage to the orcharda. A  bad washout of the government  road near Leitch'a place necessitated a gang of men thia week to  repair matters.  On Labor Day a party of fourteen young people went down the  lake by motor launch. A call was  made at Gellatly's for dinner and  the journey continued to Peachland where the party had supper,  and were joined by Iviiaa Morriaon  a former Rutland achool teacher.  The weather waa very fine and the  trip was most enjoyable throughout.  On Friday the Young People's  Society met in the schoolhouse and  waa addressed by the Rev. T.  Griffiths on the subject: "Dreams."  A new programme committee consisting of Misses Earla McDonald,  Amy Fleming, D. Turner, and  Messrs. Connal and W. Quigley,  was elected to serve for the balance of the year.  "��', ���     -o-   Recalls Early Days of  Fairview Camp  The sale of the plant of the old  Stemwinder stamp mill at Fairview,  noticed in an exchange, recalls the  early daya when Fairview.waa a  wide-awake nining town ' giving  employment to a large'population  The mill in question was a 70 stamp  mill and coat a vaat amount of  money, most of the cash coming  from old country investors. When  the bottom fell out ot Fairview, the  Stemwinder, one of it* most  ambitious projecta, ran only a short  time and from thst day to this never  a wheel haa turned and the plant  haa fallen into decay. It is stated  that a Spokane junk dealer purchased the entire equipment at the rate  of 95 centa a hundred pounds aa  scrap iron, and thia is to be hauled  to the railroad at Oroville. There  are 500 tona or more of machinery  that goea into the scrap heap. It  was a sad experience for those who  put their money on the Stemwinder  as a winner, but tha same mistake  has been made in every mining  district in the world.  Since the beginning of the year,  15,434 settlers, bring with them  money and peraonal property valued at $6,752,893, have entered  western Canada, A large majority  of the immigrant* went to Saskatchewan and Alberta, Manitoba  secured 2061 i Western Ontario  429 ; Saakatchewan 5026; Alberta  6134, and Britiah Columbia 592  aettlera.

Botha  General Louis Botha, premier  and minister of agriculture of tlie  Union cf South Africa, (lied suddenly last Thursday following an  attack of influenza. With General  Jan Christian Smuts, General Botha  signed the peace treaty with Germany on behalf of South Africa on  June 28th last. He arrived at Capetown from Europe on July 28th.  Louis Botha was born at Grey-  town, Natal, in 1863, and was a  member of the first volksraad of  I ransvaal, in which he represented  the district of Vryheid. He was  one of the seven men in the volks-  taad who voted against the ultimatum that Kruger dispatched to  Britain and which was the immediate cause of the Boer war. However, when the die was cast there  was not a Boer among them who  threw himself more loyally into  the service of his country.  Following the peace negotiations  between the Boers and the British.  General Botha took a leading rele  in the period of reconstruction.  After the grant of self-government  to the Transvaal in 1907, General  Botha was called upon lo form a  government. At the outbreak of  the great war in 1914, General  Bolha took command of the union  forces in South-west Africa, achieving a complete success and compelling the German troops in that  region to surrender.  Lieut.Gen. Jan Christian Smuts  has accepted the invitation of Viscount Buxton, governor-general of  the Union of South Africa, to form  a new cabinet.  -O   Kelowna Apples Were  Credit to Dominion  "Those apples were a credit to  the Dominion of Canada, and particularly to British Columbia." This  was thu remark made by Mr. Geo  Bell, member of the provincial legislature for Victoria. Mr. Bell was  referring to some apples which he  had eaten last January while at  Auckland, New Zealand, which  although shipped from here on  October 12, 1918, were not put on  ihe market until three months later  and after they had crossed the  equator.  The apples were shipped to New  Zealand, but owing to a diapute  were refused, taken across to Australia and back to New Zealand  again. They were Jonathans, and  Mr. Bell said that thev were aome  of the finest apples he had ever  eaten and were without doubt of  tremendous commercial advertising value to the Okanagan and especially to Messrs. Stirling & Pit.  cairn, their shippers, and Kelowna,  Aa Mr. Bell talked he munched a  newly-picked Kelowna apple and  seemed exceedingly happy to be  doing it.  o  Smithers is going to erect a town  hall at a cost of $10,000.

We are sorry lo have to announce  the loss of another member of our  troop in the person of Scout Patmor  who with his brother, Cub Patmor,  left for Vancouver on Thursday  last. Norman was a comparatively  new member of the troop, having  joined in January of this year, but  it has always been noticed that he  was a keen scout and never shirked any work that was to be done.  The troop wishes him all good  luck in his new abode at Vancouver  and sincerely hopes that he will be  able to continue to be a member  of the Boy Scouts.  Scouts Morden and Dore successfully passed their second class  ambulance last week. We are  glad to see that some scouts are  keen to get along in the troop and  hope these two scouts will keep up  the good work and also that their  good work will be an example to  others. ��  We are overjoyed to see the face  of an old friend in town this morning. Jim Calder, one of our old  Patrol Leaders, being unable to  resist the lure of the Okanagan for  long, has returned to Kelowna for  a sho. I time. It is hoped that Jim  will be able to remain here with us  during the winter for a good many  reasons, not the least of these being  the fact that he is one of our star  basketballers and our reputation in  that line must be kept up this year.  Perhaps this will be an inducement  for Jim to stay.  Another instalment of the winning scout diary:���  In the middle of this occupation  we were interrupted by the arrival  of some visitors, one party being  driven down bv Mr. L. V. Rogers.  Then we got dressed, followed by  free in bounds until 6.30. Court  of Honor started at 6.30 and continued till the first meal call. Then  came supper followed by parade  to lower the flag. Football started  at 8 o'clock and went on (ill 9 p.m.  Two other visiting cars came then,  one being driven by Instructor  Buck. The sides for football were  picked up and Ralph Weddell's  side won I to 0. Then came camp-  fire and Mr. Weddell read two  stories to us. Then we turned in,  the guards being the Otters. Lights  out went at 10.30.  Friday, July 4th.���Reveille was  blown by Scout McCarthy. We  aired our blankets and then fell in  for washing parade. When dressed we fell in to hoist the flag and  have prayers. Then came firat call  for breakfast. Breakfast over we  prepared for tent inspection. This  was won by the Eaglea with 27  points out of a possible 30. Then  we changed for physical training.  This was conducted by P.L. George  Mantle. This was followed by  fatigue duty. We then finished our  maps. Dianer waa at one o'clock  and was followed by diary writing  and compulsory rest. During compulsory rest we read and studied  up for the second class ambulance  competition. In this the Wolves  won. At thia moment several of  the larger boys went to bring up  Butler's punt.  Very soon the whistle blew for  bathing parade. We were getting  dressed when Mr. John and Mr.  George Rowcliffe arrived bringing  with them provisions and parcels for  scouts. In a few minutes Francis Buck  drove into camp, bringing with him our  Commissioner, Rev. snd Hon. T. R. Hen.  eage. Ex-Scouts Dykes, Duggan, and Fred  Whitehead accompanied Instructor Buck.  Then came free-in-bounds but the Court  of Honour was postponed till after supper,  After supper came Court of Honour. Then  We tried to pump up the football but un.  fortunately punctured it. At last we got  one fixed up and then followed a very  dusty, hot and rough game between Dick  Parkinson's side and Ralph Weddell's side.  Weather Report for  August  Compiled by G. R.

We had a ahort  camp-fire and then turned in.  Saturday, July 5th.���When we awoke it  wa i raining to we could not air our blankets.  We had washing parade and then got  dressed for breakfast. Aftera good breakfast we paraded to hoist the flag and for  prayers. Then we had tent inspection,  which was won by the Otters. Physical  training was replaced by a rehearsal of the  march past for Sunday. Then the troop  had the choice of signalling or the game  of circle-ball. The Eagle Patrol got permission to go down and finish bringing the  punt along to camp. Then came free-to-  patrols and dinner. The kitchen patrol at  dinner was the Wolves under Patrol Leader Jack Groves. After a splendid dinner  we turned our thoughts to diary writing.  Compulsory rest hour followed and it  began to rain so heavily we were confined  to our tents till about 5 o'clock. Then  those who wanted to were allowed to  bathe. Just at that.moment Francia Buck  drove into camp bringing lots of provisions.  Then we had supper and then followed a  good football match. Dick Parkinson's  side won again 5 to I. During the match  Mr. and Mrs. Lionel Taylor drove up. The  wind and resulting waves had worked the  punt off the shore so it had to be pulled  up.   Then followed camp-fire and bed.

KELOWNA  Random Remarks  By the duet  "A chicl't am*ng ye takin' notet end feth, he'll  prent them."���Burnt.  A haze on tho (ar horizon;  An infinite tender sky;  The rich ripe tints of the cornfield;  Tho wild geeae circling high;  And all out upland and lowland,  Tha charm" ot the golden rod;���-  Some oi ua call it autumn,  And others call it God.  1 auppoaa it ia commonplace to remark  on the lovelineie of nature at thia time of  year. AH the tame I cannot retrain from  commenting on it Whether we call it "autumn" or "God" does not affect the beauty  of the scheme of nature at all, but It  might indicate the spirit or quality of our  appreciation. I wonder why spring and  autumn, differing aa they do, thould both  be provocative of the poetic temperament?  Often at this season particularly. 1 am  conscious of a distinct visitation of home  sickness and long for the beauties of the  Scottish mountains and lochs. How doea  the season affect you Wither Scots?  And that reminds me of a question often present to my mind: why ts there no  distinctly .Scottish club or society of any  kind in this district > The .Scotch are said  to be clannish, and within decent limits  that is a quite commendable spirit, but  there is no evidence of it in Kelowna. I  hope that by 25th January next this reproach will have been removed from the  district.  a       e  a  While in a questioning mood might 1  put still another one���why not a Dickens  Society ?   1  know that in a community  like this there inust be a lot of admirers  of Charles  Dickens.   1 remember some  years ago  hearing  read  an  ably written  appreciation of the novelist from the pen  of a  well-known  Kelowna lady.   There  must be many more admirers of the works  of this master of fiction in and around the  city.  ���        a  m  I was much amused recently when in  conversation with a young  lady spending  a holiday here.    Discussing the fruit-pro.  ducing reputation  of the Okanagan this  lady confessed  her disappointment when  sailing on the lake on her way here to  find that the sides of the  lake were not  clothed entirely with fruit trees.   She had  expected to be almost able to  pick fruit  while sailing down to Kelowna.   Needless  to say  she  saw  and tasted fruit a plenty  before her holiday ended.   1 know that  she and her husband left here confirmed  boosters of the  Kalowna district and the  fruits thereof.
