A report was submitted by Chief  of Police, Sutherland. There had  been twenty-four cases of drunkenness, and three cases of fast driving of automobiles, two of the latter offenders being fined, and the  other dismissed with a warning.  The amount handed over in fines  during July was $80.  A monthly statement of receipts  and disbursements was submitted  by the city auditors, Messrs. Crehan  Mouat & Co.  Plans for the grading and paving of Bernard Ave. from Abbott  St. to Ellis St., accompanied by the  following letter, was submitted by  the city engineers, Messrs. Canavan  and Mitchell :--  Gentlemen :--  We present herewith a plan and  profiles for the grading and paving  of Bernard avenue from the north.  erly curl) line of Abbott St., to the  w/terly p..r���rv |ine 0f E)|ii g,  In establishing the K. ���dC3 and  elevations of the curb lines we  hive given due consideration to  the existing improvements, and  this plan is so arranged to conflict  as little a possible with them.  The grade of the surface gutters  will be too flat to carry the volume  of water delivered thereto and it  will be necessary to construct a  submerged gutter-culvert of concrete at the same time the curb is  laid. This gutter-culvert will be  laid on a water grade and is of sufficient capacity to receive the run  off from the entire length of Bernard Avenue.  The plan presented reduces the  width of the road bed between the  curb lines from eighty feet to seventy feet, which we feel will give  ample room for all traffic and at  the same time make the road less  expensive to construct. and maintain.  The paving shown is the Telford  road having a base of nigger heads  six to eight inches in diameter, and  upper courses of crushed rock of  graded sizes until a total thickness  of twelve inches is . ;achrd ; the  surface to be finished with rock  screenings and sprinkled with oil;  the sub-grade and the finished road  will be thoroughly rolled with a  steam roller, and will, when completed, present a smooth and compact surface,  It may be that the general holiday spirit and excitement engendered by the Regatta had something to do with the frequent alarms  of fire this week, or it may be mere  coincidence that both evenings of  tee regatta, the piercing screech of  the fire whistle should have brought  people flocking into the streets���  and all for nothing. 1 here was a  little excuse Wednesday night, a  small stable behind the Lakeview  hotel being found ablaze. The fire  was out however with the first  touch of the water from the hose.  An hour or so later the alarm rang  out again. This time the brigade  never reached the fire. It appears  that some boys playing around the  stable that had caused the 'trouble  earlier in the evening noticed some  sparks which had not been extinguished, and a few of the youngsters ran off and gave the alarm.  One, however, more practical than  the rest staped behind and put out  the flame with some wet hay.  Thursday night's alarm proved  still more trivial, nothing being  found in the way of a fire.  Aquatic Associations  Sixth Annual Regatta  Fine Weather Favors Annual Event.     Kelowna Carries off  War Canoe Cups  In spite of the threatening and new boat, proved somewhat disap-  uncettain nature of the weather for pointing, taking third place in the  some time past, the Aquatic Assoc-. race, but winning the prize for 25  iation managed to carry   out   their feet and under.    R. Lambly, of the  Rutland News  From our own t-orrrsponttrnl  The English Church Service will  be held on Sunday afternoon in  the old schoolhouse.  Miss Olive Gray, of Vancouver,  is paying a short visit with the  Misses Gay.  Mr. Wm. McDonald has sold  his house and lot to Mr. A. Crowcroft who now owns all the frontage from the corner to the school  property.  Mr. Wm. Mudge, of Eastbourne,  England, arrived last Saturday for  an extended  visit to his daughters  Mrs. Laishley and Mrs. J. Hall.  ��  Rutlanuira will do well r.ot to  allow the irrigation water to run  out on to the road as a self-appoint-  ed water bailiff is on the watch for  delinquents.  This type of road will stand well  under the traffic in Kelowna and  the initial cost oj construction will  be considerably less than of any  other type of good road.  There will be concrete cross  walks five feet wide at all street  crossings.  We estimate that this Telford  road can be constructed complete  including concrete curb, and submerged gutter-culvert and cross  walks from the northerly curb line  of Abbott St. to the easterly property line of Pendozi St. for the sum  of $16,270.00.  Yours very truly,  CANAVAN & MITCHELL.  The proposal was held over to  be discussed by the committee.  A complaint was read from Mr.  L. Hayman on the condition of  Abbott street. He had put in a  load of shale opposite his gate and  it had been plowed in and left in  furrows. There was also a dangerous hole about three feet deep.  Aid. Copeland said the K. L. 0.  Co. had made an offer in the  spring to grade the whole of that  section of the street on condition  that they could have a knoll of  sand which lay there to use in filling up a slough. This had been  arranged with Mr. Parkinson but  owing to some kicking by property  owners the work had been stopped.  Some discussion took place on  the matter of establishing permanent street grades. Aid. Taylor  said he had advocated some time  ago drawing up a general grade  plan of the whole city, and he  thought that it was the only way  to do really efficient street work.  Aid. Raymer said there should  be a bylaw establishing street  grades.  Eventually it was decided to consult with the citv engineers on the  matter.  The meeting then adjourned.  Mr. and Mrs. Montgomery, of  Tiverton, Ontario, are in town on  a visit.  Miss McLean returned to town  Tuesday.  Regatta programme as usual without interruption from the elements  though on the second day a short  but violent thunder storm caught  many people as they made their  way home.  The people of the valley have  come to look forward to the Kelowna Regatta as one of the events  of the year, and it is a matter of  local pride to see that these expectations are not disappointed.  Several imptovements have been  made this year to the equipment  and arrangements for 'he comfort  of the public and these were highly  appreciated by the visitors.  The programme had been carefully prepnred and added to and  on the whole was well carried out,  with the exception o( a few delays,  some of which no doubt were unavoidable. The committee however, would do well lo give close  attention to this matter in future.  The "decorations though not elaborate were very effective, the  pavilion with its climbing plants in  bloom looking exceptionally pretty.  The excursion from the north on  Wednesday proved a little disappointing, and as the Association  had to guarantee a large amount  to induce the C.P.R. to run the  trip they will no doubt be at some  expense to make up the deficiency.  Thursday, however, the attendance was remarkably good and  must have come near creatine a  record.  1 he Vernon band had been engaged for the two days and the  excellent music provided by them  proved no small part of the enjoyment.  The engagement in town of the  Gladstone Sisters afforded an opportunity to provide an unusual  diversion for the people in the  grand stand, and these two  clever young ladies gave interesting  exhibitions on both days which  showed their wonderful skill as  gymnasts and contortionists. Another innovation which was highly  appreciated was the provision of  moving pictures in the grand stand  during the evening, under the management of Dreamland.  Although records of  attendance  and receipts are not as   yet   avail  able, there seems to be   no   doubt  that financially as well as in   other  respects the Regatta was a success.  The general public have little  idea of the amount of work involved in the organizing of such an  event, and the greatest credit  due to those who give their time  freely and without stint to the arrangement of the multitudious  details.  First Day  1 The sailing races had all to  be abandoned from lack of entries  2 Single Sculls, quarter mile.  Four heats were pulled off in this  event owing to the large number  of entries. The winners in the  first three were W. Hill, St. G. P.  Baldwin, and J. N. Beale. J. F.  Burne qualified for final by pulling  over the course alone for the fourth  heat. The final was one of Tuesday morning's events.  3 Boys' Swimming Race; 30  yards for boys of  13 and under.  1 lan Weddell;   2 Cyril Weddell;  3 W, Buchanan.  4 Double Sculls, two heats. I  G. C. Benmore and R. C. Bennett;  2 H. Dixon and F. Heather.  5 Ladies' Swimming Race.  There were seven entries for this  race, Miss Nancy Buchanan carrying off first prize ; 2 Miss Dorothy  Hogarth ; 3 Miss Philpolt.  6 Open' Gasoline Launch, lor  thia race there were a large number of entries as usual and these  were   divided   into   three   classes  Mission,   won  under class.  the    18   feet   and  60  This ended the first day's races ! Roy Hauu being awarded first  a good part of the crowd having  already drifted over to Boyce's  field where a league lacrosse game  was in progress between Kelowna  and Armstrong.  8 Boys' Swimming   Race;  yards   for  boys 15 and under.    I  Earl McNair ;   2 lan Weddell ;   3  Cyril Weddell.  9 60 yards Breast Stroke (8  entries). I W. B. Piers ; 2 A. Edwards ; 3 J. F. Burne.  10 Ladies'Single Sculls. Only  three entered for this race which  was won easily by Mrs. Edwards,  The other two fouled repeatedly  d lost considerable ground, Miss  Hogarth winning second.  Handicap Swimming Race  for members of Aquatic Associa  lion. I H. Good ; 2 H. Dixon ; 3  A. Edwards  A comic event of an unusual  kind was the liberating of a well-  greased little pig from a canoe.  1 he swimmer who captured the  pig was to be the owner, but the  poor little porker had not made  many strokes towards shore before he was seized by a dozen  different swimmers, who will no  doubt have some difficulty in settling their claims.  The two gaily-attired ladies (?)  who had liberated the pig afterwards did some comic stunts on  their own, diving from the springboard arm in arm.  12 The Boys' Aquatic Derby  as usual proved a popular event,  some of the youngsters displaying  great cleverness in the handling of  their awkward slceds. Owing to  the number of entries there were  three heals, lan Weddell winning  first, Roy Haug second, and Lome  Lemon third. In the final Roy  Haug proved the victor.  13 Single Canoes. Five entries.  I Cather ; 2 A. Edwards ; 3 J. N.  Beale.  14 The Long Distance Swim  of one mile from Westbank to the  Aquatic building for the Championship of Okanagan Lake and  the " B. M. H. Challenge Cup  drew nine entries. The contestants  were taken across the lake in th  " Clovelly," with rowboats for the  attendants. R. G. Tate, of Summerland, won easily his time being  35 min. 47 sec. Tate was also the  winner of last year's race. Second  place fell to E. W. Leggelt, of  Kelowna. 38 min. 17 sec, and  third to W. B. Piers, of Vernon, 39  min. 32 sec.  15. Open Dive. An unusually  large number entered for this  event and some fine work was  shown, affording no light task for  the judges. I J. N. Beale ; 2 Chap-  pel ; Neale and Foote tying for  third. A special 20-ft. dive from  the new board resulted: Foole  first and Moote second.  16 Canoe Fours.    No entries.  17 Relay Swimming by two  teams of four each, representing  Kelowna and Peachland, was won  by Kelowna  18 The Tilting from Canoes  failed to provide the usual fun  owing to the fact lhat one of th  canoes used was a very insecure  craft which overturned in the first  three bouts without a blow being  struck. Leggelt and Weddell met  " Punch " Hunler and Budden  the final, the latter proving victorious.  19 The Mixed Canoe race was  mixed in another sense, the two  contestants fouling badly. Mr.  and Miss Cather were leading near  LACROSSE   MATCH  1 he lacrosse match which took  place at 5 p.m. between Kelowna  and Armstrong proved a most interesting game and resulted in a  win of 6-5 for Armstrong, though  a more satisfactory result, both as  regards the play and the standing  of the league, would have been a  reversion of the figures. The lineup was as follows.  Kelowna  Armstrong  McGeer  Goal  H. Murray  F. Carlyle  Point  B. Murray  F. Day  C. Point  F. Barnes  E. Hoy  Ist Defence  R. Snyder  C. McMillan  2nd Defence  D. Caldwell  G. Kennedy  3rd Defence  B. Whit more  B. McLean  Centre        E  . Simmington  G. Fuller  3rd Home  F. Maundiill  W. Pettirirew  2nd Home  F. Ilasanrd  A. McMillan  lit Home  C. Whitmore  II. Paul  Out. Home  J. Phillips  Sr.oullcr  In. Home  F. Murray  The play all along, though even,  was inclined to be rough, seven  Armstrong and 5 Kelowna men  being sent to the fence. At the  start Armstrong rushed two goals  through which rather handicapped  the local boys and made the " prophets " forecast a walk-over. Such,  lowever, was by no means the  case, and after some fast play  Schouler netted the ball for the  orchard city. In the second and  third quarters some fine play was  witnessed, Howard Paul and Kennedy showing at the best of their  form and deltghted the onlookers,  whilst " Billv " Pettigrew also did  some good work. Some strong  argument arose on account of a  goal scored by Armstrong the ball  passing through the netting. I low-  ever, after careful deliberation, the  referee gave Armstrong ihe verdict.  At the end of the third quarter  the score stood al 5-5 and some  fast and exciting play was naturally.,  anticipated, Kelowna then beinu  favorites. An unfortunate incident,  however, which helped to place a  distinct dumper on the game.  Following a melee in the Kelowna  goal mouth Armstrong appealed  for u goal but were rightly refused  on the ground that the goal-tender  was purposely impeded. Carlyle  recovering the ball threw it from  behind the net, as he thought, on  lo the field of play, instead of  which it caught Fuller, the Kelowna third home, on the back of the  lieck, requisitioning the services of  Dr. Huycke who was watching the  game. Some lime elapsed before  the injured player was able to  take up his stick, and could then  only make an attempt at play.  1 his coupled with having a man  on the fence weakened the local  team considerable and the visitors,  taking advantage, rushed a sixth  goal through thus gaining the much  desired point.  1st (Jr. 2ndQr. 3rdQi  Kelowna    -     I 1 3  Armstrong -    2        2 I  0  Second Day  22.

The committee issues a cordial  invitation to all interested to attend  the sessions of the convention,  which will be held in the Opera  1 louse. The program, a copy of  which will be found in this issue,  is an exceedingly interesting one,  and it is probable that a number of  matters wilt come up for discussion, which will prove of lively interest to residents of the district.  The merchants and business men  are taking up the matter of decorating their places for the Convention,  and it is expected that a large number of hansomely decorated windows will be the result.  tion ; R.

To Help Livestock Industry  A conference of exceptional importance to Western Canada was  held in Winnipeg recently. The  council was summoned to discuss  the problem of the waning live  stock industry of Western Canada and to discuss ways and  means of encouraging it. During  recent years the quantity of live  stock raised in the West has been  steadily declining. Not many years  ago all Canada was an extensive  shipper of cattle to England. The  cutting up of the ranges into homesteads has had some effect, but il  is not entirely the cause. Western  Canada actually is not raising  enough cattle for its own needs.  Dnring the past couple of years  large quantities of beef, poik, and  mutton have been imported into  the West, and mutton has even  been brought from as far as New  Zealand.  Hon. Martin Burrell, minister of  agriculture, is taking an active part  in the efforts to revive the industry.  Girls  Strike Against Bad  Language  Four hundred girls, members of  the Dressmakers Union, employed  at a Brooklyn factory, are on strike  against the use of profanity by the  foreman and other male employees  of the shop. The strikers hope to  bring about a series of walk-outs in  other factories to inforce the demand for a rule that foremen and  others he instructed that no profanity or abusive language shall be  used in the workrooms at any  time.  British Census Figures  There are 1,179,276 more females than males in England and  Wales. Since 1821, the preponderance of women has steadily  increased, despite the fact that  more boys are born than girls. This  proportion of females to males is  only exceeded in one country ���  Norway. According to the revised  figures the total population of England and Wales at the last census  was 30,070,492.  Wheat culling has commenced  in Southern Alberta.  The Penticton council is discussing the advisability of applying  for a charter of incorporation as a  city.  Amazing disclosures have been  made in New York regarding grafting bv police officials in connection with gambling.  It is now understood that Mr.  Winston Churchill will visit the  Dominion after Premier Borden's  return. The date is not yet defi-  nately settled.  The Dominion government has  offered to guarantee the bonds of  the Canadian Northern line from  Prince Albert to join the government Hudson Bav line near Split  Lake.  Fernie is following the example  of Vancouver in the matter of tinging the curfew bell. It is the intention of the council to have the  bell rung at 9 o'clock, each evening.  The object is lo keep young boys  and  girls off the streets.  Owing to the greatly increasing  demand and decreasing supply,  furs will be mucn dearer in Canada thia Winter. Dealers report  that in London, where the world's  fur prices are fixed, ihey are from  30 to 50 per cent, higher than last  year.  According to statistics gleaned  from the 1911 census of Canada,  the total capital value of the fruit  growing industry in British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec and the Maritime Privinces is in round numbers  $12,000,000.  The Government's crop report  for Saskatchewan just issued indicates that little damage has been  done to standing grain and that the  yield should be a heavy one. Fully  severity-five per cent, of the wheat  ia now headed out, and the farmers expect an unusually early harvest.  There will be more lunatics in  the world than sane people 300  years hence.' This prophecy is  based on the present rate of the  growth of lunacy revealed hy recent returns. We are rapidly approaching a mad world. In every  part of the world civilization is  advancing and so insanity is bound  to advance. There were 36,762  lunatics in 1659, there are now  135,000," says Dr. Forbes Winslow.  Mr. W. S, Gunsalua, a farmer living  near Fleming, Pa., aaya he haa uaed Cham,  berlaina Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea  Remedy in hia family for fourteen yeara,  and that he haa found it to be an excellent  remedy and takea pleaaure in recommending it.   For aale by all dealers.  Dominion Aid to Agriculture  It is hoped by Hon. Martin Burrell to have agreements signed  with all the Provincial Governments for the spending of subsidies  granted for the encouragement of  agriculture. The arrangements  made involve the submission of  the proposed expenditure to the  Dominion minister of agriculture,  and on his approval half the money  will be paid over. The remainder  will be paid when ic is satisfactorily  shown that it is to be spent advantageously. The Dominion can call  for an accounting at any time, The  British Columbia agreement only  awiiits the final documents, and  correspondence is in progress with  the governments of Saskatchewan  and Alberta.

M. Winslow', of the  horticultural branch of the department of agriculture, has received  an intimation from Mr. H. W.  Brodie, general passenger agent for  the Pacific coast, that special  reduced fares will be granted by  the C.P.R. to fruit pickers going  into that district this month.  Foreseeing the increased crop,  the B.C. Fruit Growers' Association  approached the railwav to aid  them in providing sufficient labor  to cope with it and this concession  is in answer to their appeal. Parties-  of not less than ten can, by paying  for a second-class ticket one way,  obtain a return ticket irom all  points between Vancduver and  Calgary to the Okanagan. These  tickets will be procurable between  August I and 20, and the return  halves are good up to the 30th of  November.  Mr. Winslow states that special  preparations are being made by  the principal fruit growers to provide suitable accommodation for  tlieit employees, and some are  making special arrangements for  the reception of women fruit-  pickers. It is hoped in this way to  popularize fruit picking among all  people who can spare the time to  undertake this work, and at the  same time spend an enjoyable two  months in the healthiest occupation possible and one which will  be well remunerated.
