Reduction in Light and Water Rates  Alderman Sutherland reported   that  the Water and Light Committee   had  decided to reoommend a reduction   of,  reasonable time.  Aid. Ddggan,   as   chairman   oi    the  Parks Committee reported that Messrs.  ,D. W. Crowley, F. M. Buokland    and  ilL.'E. Taylor had consented to     act  on the board of Parka commissioners  2 cents in the net electrio light   rate,jfor the 0,'rrent J"*1-' A "solution was  'accordingly    passed confirming     these  ' appointments.  Alderman Taylor   recommended that  an   order   be   placed   for 400 feet of  to make no change in the net power  rate, but to out off the oharge of 25c.  per month for power meter rent; to  reduce tha net minimum charge for water from 11.20 to .1.00 per month, entitling the consumer to 4,000 gallons,  each additional 1000 gallons to cost  10c. net instead of 12c. ss heretofore.  Ths rate of discount on light, water,  power and scavenging would bs inoreae  ed to 88 1-3 per cent, thus offering  still further inducements for prompt  payment.  Alderman Adams said that a number  of citizens had informed him that thsy  were looking forward to a reduction in  light and water rates, especially in the  minimum charges.  AldermanCopeland asked whether the  oommittee could not see their way to  make a reduction in the power rate,  he being of the opinion that such a  rsduotion would induoe a much larger  number of people to oonnect with the  power esrvios.  Replying to the last two speakers  Alderman Sutherland said he could  not reoommend a reduction in the minimum monthly. rates for light nor any  reduction in power rates. Ths minimum light rates ware already lower  than in most of ths ooast cities. A  careful estimate of the ooet of generating electricity in the city plant placed  it at about 7$ to 8 oents, so that consumers were now pradtioaBy getting  power at oost. Be also pointed out  that the plant was taxed to the limit  at present and it would therefore be  unwise to offer any special inducement  to obtain new power connections, as  the city could not yet take oare of  them. Vernon, he mentioned had a  five cent power rate, and though this  might appear small, yet their oharge  of 81.00 par month per horsepower of  motors ran the cost to the consumer  higher than in Kelowna except is oases  where the motors were in constant use.  Considerable influence, said Alderman Sutherland, had been used to induoe tho oommittee lo adopt a graduated scale of charges for Mght and  power, but the committee had not fal-  tea in writ tKe idea of giving tattle.*,  oleaning rod for the sowcrage works.  He also reported having asked Mr.  Mitchell to obtain prices on a diaphragm pump. The clerk was requested to place an order for the cleaning  rod, t  Tbe clerk reported that ho had been  requested by Mr. A. L, Mcugens, secretary of the Kelowna Aquatic Association to inform the council that the  lease of the site of the Association's  buildings in the park as aoproved by  the council on January 12th, 1913 had  not been executed, and request the  council to confirm, sign, and deliver  the same. It was decided to eonwlor  this matter at the nest, meeting.  Fire Brigade Annual Report  The annual report from the Kelowna  Fire Brigade was submitted, showing  that during the year there had been  twelve alarms of fire involving a total  fire loss of $8175.00.  The report waa accompanied by the  following letter from the Chief of the  brigade. Max Jenkins:���  Gentlemen,���The Chief and Directors  of the Kelowna Volunteer Fire Brigade  beg to submit their report for the  year, 1913.  There was some confusion in regard  tb fire alarm signals during the early  part of the year, but since the new  arrangemonta were made, the signals  have been very satisfactory..  The services rendered by automobile  owners in conveying members and apparatus to the fires proved of very  great benefit, and illustrated the fact  that to give efficient service an automobile fire truck is really necessary  and therefore we respectfully urge that  one be purchased at the first opportunity.  We are pleased that extra hydrants  have been ordered as during tho y<sr  a groat amount of hose has been laid  in same oases.  MAX JENKINS.  The report was also accompanied by  ��� Hs of  Miss Mildred Wilson Leads  at Close of First Period  MISS FLEMING IS SECONI  EDLY CLOSE RACE    MRS.   PETTIGREW   THIRD DECID-  SPECIAL PRICE FOR NEXT TEN DAYS  Wednesday evening marked the closing of the first period in the Record's  31200.00 Prize Campaign. Every contestant was anxious to secure every  available subscription, in order to receive the maximum amount of votes allowed during the first period.  Today's vote standing is replete with surprises. Miss Mildred Wilson uow  holds tho premier i poaition, and she ii receiving the congratulations of her  many friends, and they are richly deserved. She possesses all the qualities  that go to make a successful candidate, and if perserveranoe, coupled with  confidence are qualities that go to make a winner, Miss Wilson will be bard  lo boat. '  Miss Joy Fleming, of Rutland stands second, being only 9,500 votes behind the leader. Rutland should feel proud of Miss Fleming and her coworkers, and Miss Fleming should feelproud of Rutland, through the loyal  support they are giving hrr. It is quite evident that Miss Fleming has'her  oyo on the 8850,00 player Piano, and her Rutland friends are giving her  "rand support.  Miss B. Pettigrew holds third position, only a few thousand votes separating her and Miss Fleming. Mrs. Pettigrew has proved herself the "over  busy candidato" and she has a ho9t of friends who are giving her substantial  support. I'eisorvcrnnca is a strong virtue, and Mrs. Pettigrew possesses  plenty of it, which will make hor a vcy formidable candidate in the race  for permier honors.  Perhaps the surprise of the standing today ia the remarkable gain made  by Miss Byrns. Miss Byrns was tb last candidate to enter her name in  the competition, but today's standing shows that she will be a real contender, and when the nexA publication of votes appears she may spring a big-  tror surprise.  Lack of space prevents the mentioning of tho remaining candidates, but  their votes apeak for themselves. Perhaps never before in a competition of  this calibre has there been such a close race for honors. The standing shows  today that the ninth candidate can take the lead with two "five year" subscriptions, which goes to show how close the race will be at the finish, and  also goes to prove that tho work done during the next three weeks wi|l determine who will bo the fortunate young lady to carry off the 8850.00 Stan-  loy Player Piano. Evory candidate is doing her work well, and as they  stum! at tho present timo, there is not one candidate who is not strictly in  the running for top honors. In contests of this nature, one usually sees  ono contestant out-run the remainder and attain a big lead, but so far it  hasn't developed in the Record Campaign.  SPECIAL PRIZE  To further encourage the contestants in the big campaign ���announcement  ia made today of a special prize. The contestant who turns in the MOST  MONEY for subscriptions between Fetruery 5th and February 18th, icchiBivo  ��ill be given 815.00 in gold. This should prove a great incentive for earnest work. Anyone who wishes to enter the campaign and compete for the  $15.00 in gold may do bo, in fact a newly entered oandidate would have the  advantage. Every contestant has her circle of friends who she naturally expects support from, and at present time the contestants who have been  working through the contest, have their field fairly well canvassed. It is  quite evident then, that a newly entered candidate would have a slight advantage. Anyone desiring to enter and compete for the special may do  so, and drop out at the close of the special period, or remain in and compete for the main prizes to be awarded at the close. The special prize will  not conflict in any way with the main contest, aa all votes turned in for  tho 815.00 in gold will count on the regular prises. It is simply an inducement for earnest work.  MAXiMUM VOTES  Contestants are all aware that the second period provides for a decrease  in the vote schedule to tho extent of twenty per cent, that is, a year's subscription before Feb. 4th earned 1500 votes, while now it only earns 1000.  Contestants should study the combination schedule, which doeo not provide  tor'a decrease. By having your friends subscribe for the Record and Canada Monthly for the same number of years you will then be receiving full  amount of votes. It is- the beacon light that lighte the road to suooeas,  and those who take advantage of this schedule will be nuking their subscriptions earn their full power.  VOTE (JETTING .  Candidates who have received subscriptions for one year and can solicit  another year or two years, will receive the difference in votes. That is, a  payment of two years on a former payment of one year would earn 3500  votes.  THREE WEEKS MORE  Only three weeks more in which candidates may hustle votes in the big  campaign. Every day will count from now until the close, and the contestants who nre desirous of being winners should make each day fruitful. Opportunity is knocking on the door or eaoh candidate in the campaign today.  The vote standing shows that it is a close race, and will be a close raos  at the finish. Next week's publication may spring many surprises. Those who  are now tail-enders may be top-notohera. It sifts down to the mot that the  busy contestants during the next three weeks, will be ths successful candidates on the night of February   25th so HUSTLE! Hl'STLE! nUSTLEi  SUPPORT  That the campaign ia meeting with tho approval of the public is demonstrated daily by the number of subscribers who calli at the contest offioe and  pay their subscriptions and give their votes to their favorite oandidate. This  is unexpected support but should be great encouragement for the fortunate  contestants.  VOTE STANDING  The followlnrr represents the comparative vote standing of the napective  candidates, cast up until Wednesday evening.   The votes   represents the entire strength.  Misa M.

The meeting  though restricted to shareholders was  one of the largest gatherings of farm-  era ever held hero, and lasted from 10  a.m., until 6 p.m., with a short interval for lunch. The chair was taken  by. Mr. Geo. Allen.  Mr. Robertson was accorded a somewhat mixed reception aa he rose to address the meeting. He felt, he said,  something like the littlo boy, who,  when asked for a definition of "responsibility," replied that it was to  have only one button on his suspenders (laughter.) A great deal had been  done he continued, and a great deal  more said, since he had addressed the  fruit growers of Kelowna at the organization meeting last summer. They  had started out with high hopes and a  strong determination to see the thing  through to a successful issue. He need  hardly point out however, that they  had started under tremendous handicaps. They had begun late >in the ssa  son with i a new organization and new  machinery which was hard to get going for the first time. The Okanagan  United Growers' Ltd., was not organized until June 1st, 1913 and no shipments had beenjnede until July. They  were handicapped at the first, by their  offioe arrangement. They had been unable to get their books and stationery  tor some little time, and had been  obliged for about three weeks to keep  their records on sheets of paper. Their  late start had seriously interfered with  their early shipments, and in their office work they had never really been  able to catch up, although they had  put on a night staff to trv to keep up  with the tremendous amount of detail  work.  immigration. There are decreases for  public works, railways and canals, militia and for the naval service.  Amonrat the larger public works nre  new departmental buildings for which  $1,000,000 is set aside.  Among new votes is $40,000 for inspection of Canadian firhing. Other  items include $40,800 to assist ia suppressing the white slave traffic.  Of interest amongst the votes for  publio buildings in British Columbia,  ia an appropriation of $30,000 for a  public building in Kelowna, which is  presumably toward the erection of the  much-needed post offioe. A vote of  (15,000 is also included for Penticton  and $50,000 for Revelstoke.  Don't forrret the hockey game tomorrow night at the Tennis Court rink.

Fish to the value of $34,000,000 were  caught in Canadian waters in the last  fiscal year.  A hig tree fell during the windstorm  of yesterday in Cadder avenue, doing  considerable damage to ths telophase  system.  President Wilson oigned last Friday  an executive order putting into operation on April 1 a permanent government for the Panama Canal ton* and  naming Colonel Goethals as the first  civil governor.  Superintendtsrt Maokay of the C.P.R.  met the executive of the Board of  Trade Tuesday afternoon to discuss  the matter of the removal of the Sunday boat service.

In the Commons  last Thursday Hon. L. P. Pelletier,  postmaster-general, announced that the  parcels post would be put  into effect  ! on February 10. Negotiations and pro  liminary work are now accomplished  and the benefits of this system will  soon bo felt.  j Every poHt'office will be centre of a  local zone and within it 20-mile radius,  a special rate lower than tho provincial rates will' apply. Each xprovince  is a zone except the maritime provinces, which are combined in one.  Within each province are thB looal  /ones surrounding each post office.  Local zones are not interfered with  by provincial boundaries, A cheaper  rate in the local zone thun in the provincial zone affords protection to the  small merchant against his big oity  competitor. i  Local Zone Kates  The rates which will prevail within  this local zone of 20 miles are:  One pound, five oents; two pounds,  six oents; three pounds, seven cents;  (our pounds, eight cents; five pounds  ten oents; six pounds, twelve cents.  For the first three months���February  March and April���nothing over six  pounds will be accepted; this is to  avoid being swamped with business in  the beginning.  After that, up to 11 pounds will , be  carried and the rates will be: Seven  pounds 14 cents, and two cents for  each additional pound until the maximum of 11 pounds at 22 cents is reach  ed.  Outside Kates  For any postoffice beyond 20 miles, 1  pound, 10 cents, 2 pounds, 18 cents, 4  pounds, 22 cents, 5 pounds 26 cents,  and with four oents additional for each  additional pound. For an adjacent  province the rate of 10 cents for the  first pound will apply and for each  additional pound a charge of 6 oents.  Beyond the province, adjoining the  one in which a parcel is mailed an ad-  ditional 2 cents a pound will be imposed for each province that has to  be crossed to the destination of the  parcel up to a maximum chivrge of 13  cents a pound.  ' Thus for a 1 pound parcel mailed in  British Columbia to Alberta tho rate  is 10 cents, to Saskatchewan: 12 cents,  and to Manitoba and the want 19  cents. For a 2 pound paokttge to Alberta the rate is 16 cents, to Saskatchewan 20 cents, and all other provinces 24 cents. For 3 pounds, mailed  British Columbia to Alberta the  rate is 22 oents, to Saskatchewan 28  cents, Manitoba 34 oents, and other  provinces 36 cents.  The chief difficulty in the way  of parcels post so far has been the  railways.  The railways have been roughly ret  oeiving two millions a year for carrying the mail. The roads claim that  they have been carrying the mails at  a loss, and that their compensation is  far lower than that given the American roads. For several years past ths  roads have been agitating for a n��;w  basis, pointing put that the present  methods of compensation date batik  to I860. .    .  Wanted Six Millions  The roads took advantage of the pro-  posal to establish parcels post to force  the issue and to ssk (or not leas than  six million dollars,' or four millions  more. Thit Was for carrying the  mails alone. < They asked for another ;  arrangement for parcel* post.

Agricultural College  for British Columbia  Will Be Brand) of New University saypl  Sir Rioherd MoBride  That classes in practical agrioulture  will be a prominent feature oi ��� the  construction to be given at the new  University of British Columbia . Was  the promise made Friday by Sir Bieh-  ard MoBride at the meeting of dale-  gates to the Farmers' Institute whioh  assembled for the fifteenth annual rou-  vention at Victoria.  The premier expressed the hope that  a strong agricultural movement will  be created throughout the provlnoe  and he said that nothing was more  calculated to inspire such a movement  than' the inauguration of agricultural  classes in connection with the regular  university studies and supplementing  the ordinary academic course.       I  In the course of his address to j tha  delegates the premier said:  "We have had in commission I for  several months a Boyal Commission  of Agriculture, and in a few weeks'  time we expect to reoeive their report, as a result of which we hops  to be able at the next session of the  Legislature to bring down legislation  of a most comprehensive character. We  want the farmers of the country j to  enjov the best possible opportunities of  developing the agricultural industry  because we realize what the development means to the province as a whole  We have 'been pioneering for forty  years and think'the time is ripe for an  organized movement for the improvement of the agricultural conditions of  the country.  Will Open in Fall of 1916  "I would like to inform you at this  time that the plans for the opening of  the provincial university continue  without abatement. T here is no class  in the province more interested in'ths  university than the farmers and it is'  with particular pleasure that I am in  a position to say to you this afternoon that we have decided upon t)  fall of 1915 for the opening of taie  doors of that institution to our student population.  "One of the ambitions of the governing body of the university and tha government as well is that, coincidental  with the opening of the aoademio  course, an agricultural college will be  inaugurated. By means of an agricultural college we hope to be able to  take care of our young men and  women who intend to take up tha industry, instead of allowing them to go  to Guelph, Winnipeg, or across the international line.  "You may think this is a very ambitious project but the government  feels that when the university is opened it ought to rank with Toronto end  McGill, if not above them. We may  not open with 5000 students but fiom  the figures I have obtained there is  every reason to believe that we will  nave not less than six or seven hundred, and before three" years expire v. e  shall have from 1600 to 3000 students.  1 "I know of nothing that should op-  peal to the people of tins country  more powerfully at tne present time  than the inauguration of this university and it is with pleasure that 1  take this opportunity of informing you  of some of ths details concerning it."  School Sayings Banks  Have'Dona Muoh to Encourag* Thrift  In tba Young  Whatever be this fundamental causa  of the "high cost of living" our national tendency to extravaganos is certainly a contributory factor. In this  connection it is interesting to note tha  efforts that are being put forth to encourage thrifty habits among school  children.  The school savings bank system in  Canada had its origin in Toronto and  ���till has its headquarters then. Ths  'Penny Bank" as it is commonly called, is largely a philanthropic institution, aa practically all the service in  connection with it is voluntary. It ii  incorporated under the "Fanny Bank  Act, of 1910, tha most important provisions of whioh are: (1) that 95 psr  cent of the deposits must bs placed in  a Government or Post Office savings  bank1; (2) that no depositor may hava  to his credit an amount exceeding  1300; (4) that there must be a guarantee fund of at least $10,000, mads up  of cash or unpaid subscriptions, eontri  buted by a Guarantee Company approved by the Government; (6) that  no director or voluntary worker shall  receive remuneration for services, ��nd  that no dividends shall be paid to the  guarantors. The work of collecting  the deposits and keeping the pass  books ia performed by the teaching  staff, in co-operation with some chartered bank.  Many instances are related by school  teachers showing that the savings of  boys and girls have been put to splen  did use. During the depression in  1907-8, the bank accounts of many" of  the children, small though they were,  saved the day for almost destitute  families and there are.not a few cases  where the Penny Bank has proved the  salvation of families in times of sick  ness. It haa often given boys a start  in Hie, which they otherwise would not  have had, and has served to counteract vicious tendencies. It has been  the enemy of the cheap candy store,  where so many boys and girU acquire  tho habit of selfishly squandering their  runner. It has in short been a splendid supplementary force in education.  i I  I il  aataaaataasssasaajaaaaai  CHU ,CH OF ENGLAND MEN'S  SOCIETY  Monday next, February 9th, the  members of the above society will hold  their first educational' meeting ot 1914,  Any member of the Church of England  will be cordially welcomed to join and  all men are invited to be present next  Monday. 1913 did not produce many  good results and the secretary, Mr. F.

As muny uf his hearuru wero  aware practically the whole trade ot  tlio uoith-wesL was in the hands of two  .wholesale firms, who ware sufficiently  powerful to have entire contral of tbe  markets. In lace of this humiliating  situation, rendered more acute by the  ompetiiion from tho American growers  hey hud done their utmost to secure  tbo bust terms possible.  Discussing the question of the pay  Mfi.it of brokeruge, tor whioh the Con-  ral hud beon so keenly criticized, Mr.  Kubertson said thut when in California, he had discussed conditions there  with the general munuger of the L'uli-  niuiii Fruit Growers' K\change. Thu  attur had informed him that though  bey had now got to u position where  they employed few brokers, when they  first started practically all their ousi-  nuss had been done through brokers.  'And what is a broker'" asked Mr.  Kobertiou. "If one house has the exclusive sale uf the output, it is practically in the position of a pergonal  salesman, uud that is tho service for  whioh thoy ure paid." It wus essential  in all cummexcial business at the  present duy to have salesmen.  Asked luter as to what was the  amount of brokerage said Mr. Robertson said they had got the same terms  as paid by others on both sidee of the  line, viz., $30 per ear, and the particular concern had handled 70 por cent  of their crop. He'maintained however  that this brokerage did not cost the  growers one dollar, as they had got  better prices than they would have  done had they tried to market their  goods independently.  There was some demur amongst tho  audience at thia, but Mr. Robertson  epeated his statement emphuticnlly,  declaring he knew perfectly well of  what he spoke.  Regarding their general policy of  dling, continued the speaker, there  had been many different opinions. People said they should have got better  prices. Looking back now perhaps  hoy should. "If only our foresight was  aft good as our aftorHighl wo would all  be millionaires," he declared. From  tho knowledgo they had at the timo,  howover, it was felt that tho only safo  policy was to work on economical  lines, and take no chances. Thev wero  not in a position to gamble with the  markets. No doubt they would have  gol better prices by holding on to the  B. C.

Speaking of the delay in returns duo  to the closing of pools, Mr. Robertson  said they hud been trying across tho  line to solve this problem for ten or  wclve years and hud tried many different systems. Car pools they had found  xmsatisfactory as many growers had  lost -their entire.crop in this way when  ho oar turned out badly.    With     all  heir disadvantages poals were a kind  of insuraniv to tho growers of at least  average prices.  Tin* directors had discussed earnestly what to do to avoid delays in  pools, and it was one of tho problems  hoy had to solve. When certain dates  wero fixed for a pool aU shipments  within those dates had to bo settled  and paid for before tho pool could bo  closed, and if there was any claim  against tho railroad or other delay tho  ool must wait. Somo had asked  why not advance tbo money? The  plan had been tried in other placeii  but had been found too risky,  Mr. Robertson also spoke of the  difficult lea of collections, and said that  they had mado a decided advance in  tho reduction of credit and getting in  of cash.  Future Policy  Coming to tho future policy of   the  organization,   Mr. Robertson    stated,  that nomo timo ago, acting under   inductions from  the Central, ho     hud  United  tho  various local  associations  n tht! valley to endeavor to ascertain  thoir   views as to    the course    to be  adopted noxt year, and ho outlined the  records of tho various meetings.  In no  case, ho remarked, had they failed    to  fret a unanimous vote.     The members  hud  come with all sorts of differences  and grievances but they had   always  boon because they had failed to carry  tho people with thorn.    If they   could  only determine to pull together    they  j/ere sure ultimately to succeed.  Continuing, hi road resolutions pass-  d by tho various'1 boards regarding the  uture    soiling policy   of tho Central.  P'he resolutions though differing in do-  tail wore much to the same effect, that  ntil the association was ready to re-  line to sell to brokers and jobbers thev  should    continue    to do so. but that  ,thov should endeavor as far as possible to got into touch with tho differ-  nt  co-operative Grain Growers-' Abao-  Ointions of  tho  prairies,    Mr.  Uobertson then wont into some details as to  the prospects    of following out     this  Ian, which ho thought might     prove  he ultimate solution.  At thu conclusion of Mr. Robertson's  remarks the questioning began in earnest, and plainly showed that there  had been widespread dissatisfaction  with the returns received. Though severely heckled from all sides Mr. Rob-  crtBon proved thoroughly, eiual to the  occasion, and while ho frankly adroit -  'led that mistakes had been made, and  that returns in some oases had come  hard on individual -rowers, he maintained that under tho circumstances results had been fairly satisfactory, and  he further asserted that tho Central  had been chiefly instrumental in hold-  ling prices to what thoy had beon.  He challenged anyone to visit the  office of tho Control at any time, and  promised them free access to any of  I thoir bookl nnd records. Flo had nothing to hide In tho'mhtter, and what  ��� ho had told them wore just plain facts.  The questions and discussion were  continued at tho afternoon session and  ultimately on the smrf/estion of Mr.  J. TC. Roeldu, it was moved by Mr, A.  I Dalgleish that a conference bo held in  Kelowna at an early date, of tho directors of all the local associations in  the vnlloy for the purpose of discussing the situation and deciding upon  a policy for the future.  This resolution was passed unanimously.  It was decided to hand over to this  conference attV pu^flstlons which might  be made regarding the working of the  association, and the shareholders' wen*  Invited to put their ideas in writhv  nnd hnnd thorn in to be put before tho  conference.

Tho various local branches are  well represented, Tho members aiWved  in Kelowna yesterday and hold thnir  first meeting Inst night. The whole  work of the Central is being freely discussed, and notwithstanding tho keen-  eat criticism and expressions of disappointment at the returns of tho past  season, general policy was approved,  and a unanimous vote of confidence in  Manager Robertson was passed.
