Copeland having return  ed from his trip east and Aid.  Millie recovered from his recent  indisposition.  The usual batch of subdivision  plana came up for consideration.  W. J. .Clement submitted a plan  of the south half of Block 20, Map  202.  I Plans from a V. Bray and S. T.  Elliott were ordered to be resigned,  the owners having failed to register the plans within tha necessary  time limit.  A' Patterson's plan of Lot 5,  Block 10. Map 315, was approved  and signed.  . Subdivision plans of parts of  Blocks 38, 39, and 40, Map 202,  which had been laid on the table  for some time were passed and  signed,  S. D. Colquette reported upon a  car of poles which arrived, that  they were very aatiafactory, with  the exception of six or eight,  crooked ones.  A report was read from tha solicitors consulted in the matter of  the exemption of, C. N. R. lands in  the city from taxation. The opin  ,ion was expressed that " to entitle  it (the GN.R.Co.) to exemption under Clau��e " E " (section 13 of the  province's agreement with the company) it must show that these lands  form part of the railway or are  used in connection with the operation of the railway. Such lands  would, we think, be right-of-way,  sidings, stations, embankments,  itPMn, bridges, culverts, drain*, and  other works and approaches thereto.

This he attributed  to the large amount of public  works constructed during the year;  the late dete upon which the  assessment and tax collector's roll  were completed, delay in delivery  of stationery for the new system of  accounting, and his hesitation during the eerly part of the year in  asking for another assistant. In  his opinion the work could be  handled by the present staff, wilh  a small amount work after hours,  after things had been brought up  to date, which he hoped would be  at the end of the current year,  should thia not be the case he  ahould apply to the council for an-  otne,r. ���������'s'ant as he knew that the  condition _of the office work during  the paat six months had been quite  as unsatisfactory to the council as  to himself.  Aid. Millie requested the council to give the Government Telegraph messenger boy permission  to ride his bicycle on the sidewalk  during the bad weather, on the  ground that this boy often had  very important messages to deliver.  His worship pointed out that to  comply with Aid. Millie's request  would mean an amendment of the  by-law. The idea generally was  not received with favor by the  other aldermen and the matter waa  dropped.  $1.50 Per Annum.

I Neither Msckenzic 4c Mann nor  1 the railway company could hold  ' land for speculative purposes, or  simply with the intention of turning it to eccount at some future  date, and claim exemption unless  , it was obtained aa under Cleuse  "D" by a free grant of vacant  crown landa for the purpose of  establishing divisional points or  townsite*."  The finance committee submitted a report recommending a rebate  of $5.44 to Aid. Bleckwood, being  the amount of an overcharge  in hia taxes. A resolution was  paseed authorising this.

An agreement submitted by the  Gaddes-McTavish, Ltd., in reference to their loen to the city, wes  approved and the Mayor and clerk  were authorised to aign the necessary paper*, ^^^~  The following resolution was  psssed, " Thst the sum of $50 be  paid to C.

He explained that duiing the  peat six months the office work hed  Obituary  Mr. Geo. E. Boyer  The death of Mr. Ceo, E Boyer,  on Monday morning last removes  not only one of Kelowna's most  reepected citixens but also one of  the foremost figures in the church  life of .the city, particularly in con'  nection with the Presbyterian,  body.  The blow to the family and  friends was quite unexpected and  startling in its suddenness. It wae  only Friday last that Mr. Boyer was  taken ill with a eevere cold, but  pneumonia set in and developed  so rapidly that by Sunday little  chance wae left for recovery, and  the deceased gentleman expired  Monday morning at five o'clock.  The funeral wes held Tuesday  afternoon, a service being held at  2.30 p.m. and wae largely attend:d.  Mr. Boyer wee born st Marholm  Northamptonshire, England, but  for nineteen yeare prior to coming  to Canada lived at Uffington, Lincolnshire. Nine year* ago he came  to Kelowna, buying fiist Mr. Geo.  McCurdy'* ranch on the Benvoulin road, which after considerable  improvement and development he  sold to Mr. G. P. Dolsen.  It, wes then that he became a  citizen of Kelowna, building a  large house on the government  roed. This too he sold quite recently and had completed the  erection of a new bungalo on his  Bankhead property, moving in a  weeks ego,  Mr. Boyer was an active Christian worker in the old country, having been e locel preacher in connection with the Wesleysn Church  for many yeare before coming to  Canada.  Shortly after coming to this district he threw in his lot with the  Presbyterisn Church, first at Benvoulin end efterwards in Kelowne.  He wae elected aa elder of the  united congregations of Kelowna  and Benvoulin, and always discharged his duties faithfully and  efficiently. He frequently occupied the pulpits, not only of the  church of his choice but of other  churches as well, and his sermons  showed careful preparation and  deep spiritual insight. They were  always appreciated, the remark  being often made by one or another : " I like to hear Mr. Boyer  preach."  His place in the life of the congregation will be hard to fill. As a  citizen he could always be depended upon to uphold good civic government, and he took an intelligent  interest in municipal affair*. Hia  death ia a distinct loss to the com-  munity-  Besides the widow who is herself very ill at present, he leave* to  mourn his loss a son Mr. A. E.  Boyer of the local customs office,  a daughter, Mrs. T. P. Hill of Ver-  non.a eon living in Saskatchewan  and four daughters residing in  England.  (Contribute!)  A second public meeting for  Woman Suffrage was held on Wednesday evening, December 18th.  Mr. C. E. Weeks was in the chair.  The principal speaker, Miss  Dorothy Davis, the provincial organizer of the Political Equality  League, interested her audience  by presenting the main facts of the  suffrage movement in England, disentangled from the misleading  statements circulated by the press.  The quiet methods adopted for  45 yeara, the many large meeting*  held,  and  the immense  petition  rolls sent in to  parliament,  found useless.  Finally in 1905, two girls, in  a most orderly manner, asked at a  Liberal meeting in Manchester  whether the Liberal government  would enfranchise women, and  were denied all reply, after patient  waiting, and when they repeated  the queation were thrown with  violence out of the meeting, and  while holding a meeting outside  were Arrested and thrown in prison  as criminals.  The Women's Social Political  Union was then formed by a few,  and soon grew to immense numbers. Great processions and demonstrations were held in London,  and quite constitutional deputations sent, abut theae were opposed  by great brutality. Not only were  the mounted police ordered out  against the women, endangering  their lives, but on " Black Friday "  the police had orders to tire out  the women instead of arresting  them, and thia meant brutal and  obscene violence to women old  and young. Inquiry into theae  fact* wa* refused. Miaa Davia her-  ���elf, though preaent only aa a bystander, wss severely kicked. It  was after such treatment as thia  that women, found that some attacks upon property, of a system  atic kind, were necessary to call  attention to their wronga.  Mrs. Gore spoke of the very different experiences of suffragists in  this country, but gave an amuse-  ing account of (he replies one had  sometimes received when asking  for signatures to the suffrage petition.  Mr. R. B, Kerr pointed out the  great injustices in the law that  women suffer in this country. *  A discussion arose on the militant  tactics in England, and much surprise was also expressed that such  brutalities to women as were described should occur in England.  But the temper of Englishmen who  are impressed by the pluck of  petitioners more than by the justice  of their cause, was testified to by  several persons preaent who had  lived in the old country.  Drunken Fight Had  Nearly Fatal Results  Razor,   Axe,   and   Revolver  Were Weapons Used  The policing of the city is becoming more and more a difficult  problem, and ia already almost  more than the chief and hia assistant can handle. The number of  foreigners and toughs who work  only intermittently to keep up sup-  lie* is increasing, and it is'no essy  to keep task this element from  bubbling over occasionally.         Last Sunday night, or rather in  were I the small hours of Monday morning, the neighborhood, around the  Exhibition grounds was startled  out of it* deep by the aounda of a  drunken quarrel amongst some  Italians. Their hot Latin hlood  waa aroused to an unusual pitch,  and knives were drawn, and an  axe brought into play. Thing*  began to look like murder, and  Chief Sutherland was awakened  from hia bed and hurried at once  to the scene.  The anger of the combatant*  was at once turned against the representative of law and order, and  a revolver wa* drawn. The chief  was unarmed, but after a desperate  struggle he managed to secure the  gun. He then proceeded to arrest  thiee of the fighters, who were all  more or lea* badly wounded. One  had five wound* about the head  and face, while another had a terrible cash in the back of hi* head  fully four and a half inches long,  inflicted with a razor, which waa  broken in the atruggle. The chief  managed to get the three men aa  far aa the new telephone office,  though not without several attempts  lo escape, in one of which Sutherland was brought down to the  sidewalk. He threw off his assailants however, and being without  weapons but his bare fiats, used  them to good advantage, stunning  the ruffians so that they had no  fight left.  Upon reaching the telephone  office it waa found that some of  the prisoners' wounds were so bsd  that ii was feared they would bleed  to death. An automobile waa  therefore 'phoned for and the  wounded men conveyed to Dr.  Huycke's surgery where their hurls  were attended to. They were  afterwards lodged for the night, in  the coop.  Next day they ware brought up  before the magistrate and fined  each $20 or three month*. The  fines were paid.  Success Entertainment  by Dramatic Society  The C. P.R. pile driver has beerf  at work during the paat week fixing the wharf preparatory to erecting an addition to the depot.  The " lake shore road " between  Kelowna and South Okanagan was  officially opened for traffic thia  week when the Hon. Price Ellison  and Mr. Hamilton Lang went over  the ground and inapected the work.  The road haa presented unexpected difficulties in many places.  The old telephone office on Ellis  St, which was vacated this week  by the telephone company ia to be  occupied as the "Okanagan" luncheon and tea rooms. Mr. and  Mrs, Maidment have rented the  place and hope to be open for  business about the New Year.  Breakfast, dinner and afternoon  afternoon teae are to be provided  at moderate charges. Accommoda -  tion is also to be provided for a  few boarders.  Mr. W. R. Glenn is away on a  visit esst.  Dr. Knox's ��� old house is being  moved away from its site in main  street and will be placed on Pendozi Street near the Club. The  removal of this house will bring  into still further prominence the  architectural features of the courthouse and jail.  August McDougal, of Westbank,  was fined $25 last Saturday ior  stealing goods from the ferry wharf.

The Department of Public Work*  ha* authorized a *urvey of Seymour Narrowa to ascertain the  feasibility of constructing a bridge  from the mainland to Vancouver  Island.  The Musical & Dramatic Society  scored another triumph laat Thursday by the concert or entertainment given in the Opera House.  There was almost a record houae,  and the generous nature of the  receipta will go a long way toward*  helping in the future work of the  Society. A capital programme  wilh a touch of variety had been  got together and lhe affair was  generally pronounced a great success. Unfortunately our office staff  was too busy with the Christmas  rush to attend the event. In our  difficulty we prevailed upon a  friend in the country to represent  us in the matter. This is how he  did it:���  Mi. Editor,���The following are  a few of the impressions left on  the memory of a " rawncher " who  looked in at the above entertainment.  The Kelowna Musical & Dramatic Sociely is to be congratulated  upon the splendid talent brought  together, and the whole fourteen  turns were enjoyed and appreciated by the large audience who  filled thr reserved seats, rush seats  and also the uncommonly hard  wooden seata.  The orchestra did splendid work  the overture " Poet and Peaaant"  deservedly called forth enthusiastic applause, which wai continued  till the demand for an encore waa  granted.  The bandmaster, Mr. Bornholdt,  gave a skilful rendering of a difficult violin solo.  Mr. Stone is no doubt the best  judge of the style of song suited to  hia cultured voice, but hi* selection* were rather mournful in their  effect, and hia invitation lo view  aomebody'a grave and moralize  thereon was not generally accepted. The old' claasic " The Longshoreman " or even " Knocked 'em  in the Old Kent Road " would  have suited the company better.  llie occupants of the box seats  in the " Gods" left no one in  doubt as to their appreciation of  Miss Crowcroft'* graceful dancing,  or the skilful little songlets by  Mra. Edgelow, which unfortunately  could not be hearJ distinctly or  enjoyed by those in the back seats,  owing to the barn-like construction  of the hall; one galleryite, however, evidently familiar with the  choius of the brightest selection,  told his neighbours that " he fell  so awfully foolish when the moon  come* out," and, judging from his  voice, there's no doubt he was  telling lhe truth.  The songs by Mrs, Soames were  rich in expression and very much  enjoyed.  Miss Pearson gave the audience  great pleasure in " For all Eternity "  and her fresh, rich mellow tones  in "Annie Laurie" took the memory back to the time when one  vowed to do doughty deeds for  one's own personal "Annie Laurie,'  Rutland News  (From our em* eaesaeataeuiaui)  The  Methodist  Church  Christmas services were conducted by  the Rev. Wm. Vance  on Sunday  evening when appropriate music  and sermon were enjoyed by the  large congregation  present.    On  Monday evening an entertainment  was given by the scholars assisted  by aeveral young ladies connected  with the church who received a  hearty vote  of  thanks  for   their  services.     A crowd of youngsters  were supposed to be in search of  the residence  of "Kris Kringlr,"  and led by a fairy named " Fancy."  They eventually found him, meeting on the way, numeroua persons,  Fairies,  Brownies, &c.   The fireplace and chimney looked remarkably real  and  homelike and the  performers took their several parts  in a very creditable manner.   The  entrance of Father Christmas and  the distribution  of the numeroua  gifts brought a delightful evening  to a close.  Items from Ellison  On Tuesdsy last a pleasant evening was spent in the schoolhouaa  by the members and friends of llie  Literary and Social society. Dancing was indulged in until the early  hours of the morning and everyone  went home feeling lhat they had  enjoyed a real good time. Mr. H.  Allan, violinist, and Mr. G. Whit,  aker, pianist, provided a first class  programme of music.  On Friday evening the annual  Christmas Tree was held in the  schoolroom, when a fine entertainment was rendered by lhe scholars  which waa greatly enjoyed by lhe  large audience brought together by  the knowledge that a good time ia  always assured at Ellison. The  various jterna were rendered' in a  manner that reflected great credit  on the scholars and teacher.

The Kaffirs were  very energetic. Posaiblv the quick  effect of the fire water accounted  for thi* agility, or perhaps the light  and airy costumes were not conducive to warmth especially in the  sunny Okanagan.as one chieftain  remarked. Beauty is but skin deep,  and one South African gent rubbed some off when he got up  from the herd, hard ground. The  sketch was a clever and welcome  change from the ubiquitous Indian  pow-wow.  While waiting for the last act  during a rather long interval, one  of the attendanta feeling tired,  leaned against a radiator and accidentally lurned a stop cock with  the result that he got a pocketful  of hot water and left hurriedly  looking rather damp and unhappy.  In the capital play " The Man in  the Street," Mrs. Soames was  delightfully natural aa Minnie  Adare, and Mr. Eric Dart was just  the same urbane gentleman we  have always found him.

To this  end the Congress has endorsed the  efforts being made for the creation  of field military posts near the  national forests with a view to  utilizing the national troops where  emergencies arise in the protection  of the national forests from fire.  More than a million miles of  territory in comparitively sparsely  settled sections of the United States  will be covered daily by a forest  fire preventnlive force of 55,000  men, as a result of an order issued  by Postmaster General Hitchcock.  These men are the rural and star  route mail carriers, who are directed to co-operate with the forest  rangers and state fire wardens in  every way possible.  ���-' ������  r       r, *r-  Hens Lay Two Eggs a Day  At the international egg-laying  contest held in connection with the  Connecticut Agricultural College  the startling discovery was made  that some hens actually lay two  eggs in a day. This was proved  by trai) nesting and leg banding  the contestants. It is now the aim  of the poultry experts to eliminate  the non-producing or irregular laying varieties, and develop a type  with a minimum production of 200  eggs annually.  Next year the Tete Jaune Cache  reserve will be thrown open for  preemption.. It contains 633,000  acres.  There are 7,200 men and eight  steam shovels working on the  Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. The  road will be finished next year from  ocean to ocean.  There was a man in our town,  And he wns wondrous wise ;  He swore (it was his policy)  He would not advertise.
