DECEMBER 21, 19*16.-6 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Council Approaches  End of lice Term  Nominations January 7th���Tiff  Between Aid. Millie and Copeland Makes Meeting Lively  Formal arrangements ior the  election oi Mayor and Aldermen  for the coming year were made  at last Friday morning's meeting of lhe city council, when the  date of nomination wasiStated  according to statute as Moud.i,,  January 7th, between the hours  uf 12 o'clock noon and 2 p.m.  At the same time nominations  would be received for the three  vacancies on the Board oiSchool  Trustees caused by the retirement of Messrs. J. A. Bigger,  J. B. Knowles, and W. JR..  Trench,, whose two year terms  expire this year. As usual, the  city clerk Mr. G. H.Dunn, was  appointed returning officer. If  a poll should be necessary, this  will be held on the Thursday of  , the same, week, between the  hours of 9 a. m. and 7 p. m.  In accordance with Section 5  of the Weekly Half-holiday Act,  a vote will also be taken to determine whether the halt-holiday  which is now compulsory under  provincial law, shall oe held on  Saturday or some other day of  the week.  The ordinary 'routine of the  council's business was enlivened  somewhat by a little dust between Aid. Millie and Aid. Cope  land. Tbe squabble arose over  the Pendozi street bridge, which  it w 11 be remembered Aldf Millie had some time ago reported  to be in an unsafe condition,  and had urged the council to  1 'sanction some structural repairs  to avoid chance of an accident  Aid. Copeland, chairman oi the  Board of Works, under _vhicb  department the matter naturally fell, happened to be away at  the. time, and Aid. Millie, the  other member of that committee  superintended the repairs to the  bridge, and had put in sonn.  temporary supports.. Aid. Copeland had since had these tempi -  rary supports removed, a procedure which greatly inceh ed  Aid. Millie, and he enquired of  Aid. Copeland, with much indignation, why this had been  one without consulting the committee.  It appeared that prior to the  meeting the Aldermen had had  some words over the matter, so  when Aid. Millie made his inquiry at the meeting, the contro  versy was reopened. Aid. Millie maintained that the bridge  was unsafe for traffic, and that  the removal of the braces which  he .had had placed under it had  rendered it very dangerous and  liable to collapse at any time.  Aid. Copeland, while admitting  that the bridge needed some repairs, denied that it was unsafe  and offered to drive the steamroller over it and prove his assertion. He claimed that ke  had had the timbers removed  as they were not needed and  might cause a jam and wash  the bridge away altogether if  the creek had to rise.  From arguments the two got  to personalities, and matters  became a little warm for a time  until finally the Mayor intervened and managed to rcsr.-.re  orer.  It was finally decided that the  bridge should be repaired and  the Board of Works; was instni".  ted .to see that this was done.  Aid. Sutherland mentioned  that the street lighting system  was at present operating on one  transformer only, the other being out of adjustment. He had  taken the matter up with the  representative of the Canadian  Westinghouse Co., who had  promised to make the necessary  adjustments during his next  visit* to Kelowna.  The matter of grants to public  institutions was the subject of  a recommendation from the fin  ance committee*. and tin following were authorized by the  council:  Kelowna Hospital , .$303.00  Rutland News  -   (ftwsa our own ConeimiruUat.)  Mr. Clarence Duncan left this  morning on a visit to Calgary.  Miss Jennie Lock left last Thursday on a visit to Bovvden, Alta.  The Christmas entertainment at  tbe Methodist ciSurch ia to be held  Friday evening in the church.  Mrs. Sharps who baa been in the  Kelowna Hospital for some time,  was able to get to her homeSaluiday  last very much improved in health.  Mr. Gordon Caspel returned  Saturday from a months visit to the  prairie. Mrs.Caspel left Tuesday for  Poitland where she will undergo  an-operation.  Special Christmas music will be  given by the choir at the Methodist church on Sunday. This will Include selections from the oratorio  "Christ and His Soldiers".  The Rutland Wornens Institute  met at Mrs. W. Scbell's home last  Thursday afternoon. Refreshments  were provided by the directors,  and a pleasant social afternoon  was spent. Mrs. Whittaker sang "O  Canada."  There is to be a dance in the  Rutland schoolhouse on Thursday  next Dec. 28th. in aid of the Kelowna Hospital and the Red Cross.  An effort is being made to furnish  especially good music, and refreshments will also be p ovided.  There was a special service at  the Methodist church Sunday evening last for the purpose of unveiling the "Honor -Roll" of members  and adherents of the church who  had enlisted for military service.  The service which was in charge  of the Rev. T. Griffiths, was of. a  patriotic character, and included a  stirring address from Mr. Griffiths  on the duties of the people in relation to the war. The unveiling of  the Roll of Honor wa�� performed  by little Alma Bird, daughter of  the soldier whose name appeared  first on the list. There were fourteen  names on the list, and these were  inscribed in letters of gold upon a  handsomely designed and executed tablet, the work of Mr. Mugford  the Sunday school superintendent.  After the unveiling was performed,  the audience standing, joined heartily in the chorus of "O Canada".  The names on the list were read  put and were as follows:-  Frank Bird, C. Edwards, W, Gay,  S. Gray, A. Gray, W. Horsley, G.  Longstaffe, Fred Plowman, W.  Plowman, J. Plowman, W.Quigley,  A. Wigglesworth, T. Watkins, L:  Flemming.

Millie drew the attention  of the council to the fa".t that  Lot! 12, Plan 1365, on Etliiil St.,  near the bridge, extended over  the street line, and as one of tit*  fire hydrants had been ilaced in  the lot, and the owner was intending to if ence it in, in his  opinion the city should take  steps to protect its interests.  After some ' discussion the  council decided that as very  little inconvenience would be  caused to the citizens by this Sr>t  being fenced in, they would not  be justified in purchasing anv  portion of it under existing  conditions.  Aid. Duggan reported that the  Light,and Water committee had  engaged Mr. ,T. McMillan as  chief engineer of the power  house at a salary of 1125' per  month. This action was con  firmed by resolution.  Included in the correspondence  wast a copy of the resolution  from the Penticton board ol  trade in .reference to the divert  ing of thte iTransprovinciil Hu_b  way.  Mrs. Frances A. Pedlar applied for a rebate of a portion  of tne taxes paid upon her house  in Gnaham street, or, am assurance v that a proper' sidewalk  would be constructed, that  water connection would be given, and that a stre/et light  would be placed.

Probably few utterances of the  head of the British 'government  have ever been more keenly awaited by the public, not only of Great  Britain, but of the whole world?  than the announcement of the new  Premier, David Lloyd-George, as  to Britain's attitude to the offers of  peace from Germany, transmitted  through the United States some  days ago.  For some days Mr. Lloyd-George  has been confined to his bed and  there was some uncertainty as to  whether he would be appear before the House Tuesday as planned. When he did appear in the  historic - chamber, he was loudly  cheered from all sides.  "I appear before the House," he  began, "with the greatest responsibility which has fallen on any  man as chief adviser of the crown,  ���in the midst of the most gigantic  war ever waged, on which depends  the destiny of nations and humanity. The responsibilities of the  government are accentuated by  the declaration of the German  chancellor and the note communicated through the United States,  Our answer will be given in full  accord with our allies.  "The German note was a mere  paraphrase of the chancellor's  speech," the Premier went on.  "Each of the allies has separately  and independently considered the  matter, and arrived at the same  conclusion' I am glad the first  answer has been given by France  and Russia. 1 hey had unquestionably the first right to speak, for the  enemy is still on their soil, and  their sacrifices have been great. I  simply stand here to give clear and  definite support to the statements  they have made.  "Anyone who wantonly prolongs  this conflict has a crime on his  soul which oceans of tears could  not cleanse," the Premier declared,  but anyone who abandons the  struggle without attaining the object would be even more guilty.  Are we likely to attain our object  by accepting the German proposals? To accept the proposals  would be to put our heads into a  noose. Historic examples cause  us to regard the proposal with  disquiet." ,  Prerr'er Lloyd-George declared  that Hollweg'a speech and the  German note afforded small hope  of an honorable, lasting settlement.  He bitterly and ironically aaid:  "Chancellor von Bethman-Hollweg  failed to use a single phrase indicating that Germany was prepared to accept the only terms that  . would make peace possible."  Lloyd-George quoted Lincoln:  "The war must end when its object  is attained under God. It will  never end until we achieve that  object." Great cheering followed  his statement.  "We do not propose to put our  heads into a nooze, with the end  of the rope in the hand of Germany," Lloyd-George continued.  Britain endorses every word of  Russia and France's refusal. Without reparation, peace is impossible.  A few pious phrases about humanity cannot liquidate all the German outrages on land and sea.  "The allies' terms are complete  restoration and full reparation,  with'effectual guarantees for the  future. The allies insist the only  end of the war is a guarantee  against Prussian militarism disturbing Europe's peace. It would be  cruel folly if the swashbuckling  through Europe's streets were not  punished as an offence against the  law of nations. Hollweg's self defense plea deludes the German  natit n."  The Commons scene was the  most tense since the war was declared. Digr.atariea packed the  floor of the galleries and wildly  cheered Lloyd-George and Asquith.  In our personal column will be  found a paragraph relating to Cap.  Stewart being appointed as organist at the English church. Word  has just come to hand that Mr.  Stewart has been given a military  appointment in Calgary, and he  has reluctantly had to cancel hia  decision.  Nelson Board of Trade decided  to ask the city council to hold an  inquiry into the high cost of living.  Flour, sugar, meats and fuel were  among the ar icles specified for enquiry as to the reasons for the  prices at which theyare being sold.  During October the courts of  Cook county, Illinois, in which  Chicago is situated, granted one  divorce to every six marriage  licences granted by the county  clerk. In all there were 3203  marriage licences issued and 634  divorces granted.  Premier Lloyd-Grorge Tuesday  announced to the Commons that  Great Britain intended to recognize  the Venizeloa provisional Greek  government. They would refuse  to recognise King Constantine. He  said a firm Greek stand was necessary to prevent a repetition of  the Roumanian disaster.

Mr. Lloyd-Jones kindly supplied  us with a load of box ends to light  our stoves during the winter months  and the following five ladies each  gave us one dollar to purchase a  supply of cord wood: Mrs. Knox,  Mrs. Rees, Mrs. Murdoch, Mrs.  Wilson and Mrs. Seon.  We all regret very much the loss  of our most able and efficient president, Mrs. Boyee. It is hoped  that all members will make a  special point of being present at  the meeting next Tuesday to discuss the future arrangements ofthe  Society and the election of a new  president.  Mr. and Mrs. A. McGregor left  this morning to spend Christmas  with friends in Calgary.  Mr. Fred Stirling, C.P.R. general  freight agent at Nelson, was through  here yesterday.  Mr. and Mrs. Kinnear, Messrs. ].,  McEachern and Gordon Scott were  passengers to the coast this afternoon.  Word has been received in letters from England that a draft of  the 172nd Battalion have been already moved over to France.  A change has taken place this  month in the ownership of the  Kelowna-Westbank ferry, Jas. I.  Campbell having sold out to L.  Hayman. Mr. Hayman, it will be  remembered, held the contract  formerly for a number of years,  being succeeded about six or seven  years ago by A. E. Hankinson,  who was in turn succeeded by Mr.  Campbell, who has just completed  his fifth year on the lake. Mr.  Campbell, it might be mentioned,  has purchased the ten-acre ranch  on the Vernon road known as the  "Glass place," from Mr. Lloyd and  will turn farmer.  Voting takes place today in the  bye-election fight between Hon.  M. A. Macdonald the Hon. Ralph  Smith, and Macdonald's opponent  D. E. McTaggart. Owing to the  peculiar circumstances of the contest the result is very problematical.  An alloy steel has been devised  in England which is non-rustable.  It is said that knives, forks and  other cutlery made of it will not  even tarnish, and if turned out by  the factory bright and shining they  ��vill remain in that condition to  the end. A little washing ia all  that is necessary to restore it under  anv circumstances.  A supplementary estimate issued by the British par'iainmt  last week calls for an additional  one million men of all ranks lor  the army service luring the pre-  enti fiscal year. Che original  estimate was for to'ir million  Questions galore 'have been  raised by the new food regulations in the old country and  their operation. One of the  problems which faced the Londoner at dinner was whether  two helpings from one course  constituted two courses, for thc  number of courses is limited by  law.  Caught Selling Liquor  to the Iota  Police Unearth Serious Case  and Impose Heavy Fine  Although it ii strictly illegal for  any person to supply an Indian  with liquor, it has been obvious  for some time past that the Si washes  of (de neighborhood have been  getting plentiful supplies of "firewater," and though the police have  suspected the existence ot seme  secret source of supply, they have  hitherto been unable to run it  down. It waa due to the smartness of Provincial Constable Graham, therefore, this week, that the  mystery has been cleared up and  the culprit brought to book.  Constable Graham had suspected for ��ome time that Rheuben  Draper, a man who occupies a  house not far from the lake on the  south of the town, had been conducting this illicit business, and on  Saturday night last set himself to  watch. He noticed several Siwosh-  es coming and going and managed  to collar several of them who carried unmistakeable evidence of  their errand, including one young  lady named. Emily, otherwise "Girlie" McDougall. In the course of  their statements at the police court,  they stated that Draper had been  carrying on the business for years  and that they and others had frequently bought l;quor from him.  Draper's house was searched and  a quantity of whiskey and other  liquors found. He was accordingly arrested and on being brought  before the magistrate on Monday  the evidence against him proved  overwhelming. He confessed having given drinks to the Indians,  but denied having ever sold any  to them. He waa, however, found  guilty and a fine of $100 and costs  impoted or six months.  He paid the fine, but his hopes  of liberty were dashed,, for he was  immediately re-arrested by the  city police on a charge of having  stolen goods in his possession. It  appears that during the search of  his house the police had come  upon several pairs of boots and a  quantity of dry goods, which bore  unmistakable traces of having  come from the salvage stocks of  Messrs. Muirhead & Co. and Thos.  Lawson, Ltd., whose premises were  recently destroyed by fire.  Evidence was received from  several Siwashes that they had  purchased boots and dry goods  from Draper at a very cheap rate.  The charge, however, was dropped  owing to the impossibility of securing evidence to prove lhat Draper  came into possession of thc gooda  unlawfully, he claiming to have  purchased them at the salvage sale.  He was convicted, however, in  the city court of supplying liquor  to "Girlie" McDougall and a further  fine of $100 and costs imposed,  which was paid.  It was recalled that about three  years ago Draper had been fined  for living on the Indian Reserve.  Don't forget the "Hospital Shower" which ia to be held Thursday  next, Dec. 28th.  The Mission Circle of the Methodist church is holding a sale of  candy on Saturday afternoon in the  store next to Jerman Hunt's. Afternoon tea is to be served.  The ladies of the W.C.T. U. are  arranging for a social to be held iu  the Methodist Church on Jan. 11 th.  at 8 o'clock. The purpose is lo  raise funds towards the W.C.T. U.  "Cocoa Fund", supplies of which  beverage are being forwarded to  the troops as an additional comfort during the winter months.  Lieut.-Coi. H. D. Hulme ha* been  appointed president of the Special  Inquiry Board of the five colom Is  in London, appointed to determine  the standing of every Canadian  officer now in England whose battalion has been broken up, ai d  ���ind who is, figuratively, unemployed. The board will decide what  duties shall be assigned to the (officers, or whether they shall be returned to Canada.

Wonderful New Warship  Has Range of Speed Hitherto  -  Unheard Of  That necessity is the inother  of invention has; never been so  conclusively shown as in present war. In every line of supply equipment, transportation,  etc., there have been developments considered impossible before the war. The size.speed,  and control of aeroplanes alone  is hardly believable when compared with the greatest achievements before August 1914.  Tho latest wonderful development is,in the Italian navy.  They have just tried, out a Urge  battleship of a new kind, and  driven in a new way. The details, of course, are not available, but it is known that she  covered a distance of 800 miles  at three times the speed of the  fastest transatlantic liner, and  that she was attacked by a submarine which fired a torpedo  which -passed several hundred  yards behind Because of the high  speed, of the boat. The torpedo  boat destroyers acting as a convoy for the new battleship were  lost to', sight in a few minutes  when the latter speeded up.  A vaporous mixture of naphtha and compressed air is used  develope a temperature of from  1,500 to 1,800 degrees centigrade  in the boilers. She is driven by  three turbines, each naving 8400  horse pou%r. The sueed is so  great that the boat seems to  simply jump Irom place to  place. The terrific force driving  her shakes her like a perpetual  earthquake. She would soon be  wrecked to pieces except for tne  fact that she is specially constructed to stand this vibration,  and a ' special steel is used  throughout.- Her trials have  been so satisfactory that several others have been started by  the Italian government.  The fastest boats have made  the trip across the Atlantic in  4'. days. Imagine making the  same trip in 36 hours a few  months after the war.���North  Shore Press.

By a vote of about -forty  thousand to six thousand, the  people of Saskatchewan decided  that the government dispensaries which took the place of the  open bar for the sale of liquor,  shall be abolished, and the province will accordingly adopt  prohibition outright.  Predictions are being made by  some radicals in Washington  that within ninety days or less  after the- rejection of Berlin's  peace proposals, diplomatic relations between Germany and  the United Stat'6 will be broken off because of the character  of the submarine warfare which,  will be the -only aggressive' field  left to'the Teutonic nations.'

Losses in Healing  Value of Storm-Window* in the  Saving of Fuel  Owing to the rising orice ol  coal and the need for beating  our dwellings in winter, \&l& cost  of fuel is a large item of tv  pense to the householder. Anything that can be done vo icduM  this cost without surtering i"  convenience from '.he cold should  be welcomed iby all. ;  The average Householder has  but little knowledge ot the principles and application of hcat'ngr.  and there are manv t>or,iio��s of  Canada where the saving of fuel  by the use of storm windows!, or  double windows) in not fully appreciated. Heat is lost from a  building in two ways, by (1)  radiation, i.e., that transferred  through the walls, windows,  and other exposed surfaces by  conduction and lost, and (2) by  convection currents, or leakage,  namely the losses through the  openings around windows, doors  etc.  By. the opening of-, outside  doors much heat is lost. This  to a great extent, can be overcome by the use of storm or  outside doors. Better still is  the storm porch, which allows  of one door being closed before  the other is opened. This porch  may be removable, to permit oi  the use of all the verandah space  in summer.  The radiation Losses axe usually of greater importance than  the convection losses. As losses  due to radiation from walls,  floor, ceiling^ and doors, are determined by I the structural  features of the house, ,they are  largely unavoidable. The most  serious radiation losses are from,  windows, and the saving of he at  resulting from the use 01 storm,  windows is largely due to the  layer of dead air ��� one of the  best non - conductors-bet* een  the inner and thi storm sushi's.  Storm, windows also pvevenl  uncomfortable drafts.  The great heat l->ss from single windows is demonstrable.  A square foot of, window surface  radiates as much heat as 2%  |-square feet of tin H iueh brick  wall surface. Sto'm windows  reduce the loss to nearly one-  half of this amount. In addition they reduce the loss due  to leakage, and save from ten  to fifteen per cent, ut the fuel  bill.���W. J.

IIIIIMHIffllMllllillllHIIIH.f  SKICUE  OYNOICATS  The Destruction of Rheims  Rheims in time of peace had six  thousand houses intact; of these,  two thousand have been entirely  destroyed and three thousand have  been damaged more or less seriously. The Germans have guns  at a distance of just one mile from  the cathedral, and the cathedral  is in the very heart of Rheims.  Even with their field guns of .77  calibre stationed al Nogent I'Abes-  see and in the famous.fort of Bri  mont they can hurl shells upon the  cathedral. 1 he two greatest industries of the city before the war  were the woollen manufactures  and the making of champagne  wine. The Germans were unable  to loot the bulk of the champagne  supply or to wreck the immense  mileage of wine cellers, but it is a  different story with regard to the  woollen industry. There is not_a  single woollen factory left in  Rheims. The Germans' espionage  system had revealed to them the  location of every woollen factory,  its capacity and equipment.
