 UII  LP  LCoww  Mrttma Uecovb  Ugialatlvs AtMkWtf  Victoria, B.C,  VOL XI.  NO. 37  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, JULY 31, 1919.-4 PAGES  T  $1.50 Per Annum  #*  ijoyable Garden Fete  The^^oir^MeMrtfan Chapter,  I.O.D.E.,  held  a  moat enjoyable  farden fete on the lawn of Mr. D.  Joyd-Jones on Thursday evening,  July 24th. The beautilul grounds  were shown to advantage by the  Delco light and lanterns, which  provided excellent illumination  and which was kindly installed by  Mr. Trenwith.  A fish pond for the children  proved a great attraction, under  the management of Mrs. Trenwith.  The fortune-teller was alao very  busy being patronized by both  old and young, Miss Nicol kindly  taking, charge of this. A beautifully-decorated flower-stall was  under the management of Mesdames Cross and Packham, where  many flowers were readily sold.  An excellent programme was  provided under the direction of  Mrs. Ambler as follows and rendered after a few opening remarks  by the Rev. E. D. Braden:���  Piano Solo   Mr. Dilworth, ot Victoria  Dragon Fly Dance   Patsy Anderson  Solo When Love is Kind  Misa Annie Fleming  Solo  Dear Old Pal of Mine  Mr. J. Bamling  Solo Yesterday and To-Day  Mra. J^ H. Trenwith  Dance    Patev Anderson  Duet A Lover and His Lass  (Encore)- The Keys of Heaven  Mr. J. Bamling and Miss Annie Fleming  Dance Mendelssohn's Spring Song  Pupila of Mrs. Anderson  An orchestra composed oi Mr.  and Mrs. Rouse and Mr. Gore,  played during the evening and  was very much enjoyed. After the  programme dancing took place on  the lawn which proved a pleasant  ending to a most enjoyable evening.  The proceeds, which amounted  to almost $100, will go towards  the I.O.D.E., who are striving to do  their ahare towards the War Memorial.  Wants More B.C. Wheat  A. C. Noakes, representing the  Victory Flour Mills at Vancouver,  was in the district today with the  idea of reviving interest in wheat  growing. The Victory Mill is  really the former Enderby plant,  which some time ago was moved  to the coast, but had to shut down  owing to the decrease of wheat  production in the province.- The  Victory Co. have taken the matter  up again and are erecting a 400  barrel mill. They are advocating  the growing of a soft milling wheat  as more suitable for their purpose  than the hard wheat of the prairies,  and which this province only can  grow to perfection.  [Will Organize Farmers'  Union of B. C.  [To Combine Farmers' Institute  and United Farmers  Plans were completed last week  [for (he organization of the Farmers'  I Union of British Columbia, which  j will be an organization of ten thou-  | sand members and will embrace  fi the membership of the Farmers'  [Institutes and that of the United  ���(Farmers of British Columbia. This  ris a result of the resolution which  I waa passed at the conference of  ofarmerj held laat month at Smithera  [when it was thought that as these  [two associations work more or less  I along the same linea, that an amal-  | gamation of interests would be to  [the benefit of tho farming industry  r generally. As a result a committee  I was named made up of three  I members of each association, with  1C. E. Barnes, president of the B.C.  i Fruit Growers' Association, aa  5 chairman, to deal with the matter.  The committee met in Vancou-  I ver, and after thoroughly diacus-  [ aing all the various phases of the  [ question it was unanimously of the  [ opinion that it waa a move in the  ' right direction. Those on the com-  j mittee representing the advisory  board which is the governing body  of the Farmers' Institutes, were Jas.  Bailey, Chilliwack; W. F. Harrison,  'Kamloops, and C. E. Whitney-  Griffiths, Metchosin. Those representing the United Farmers were  >R. A. Copeland, Lumby, president;  George Clarke, Sidney, and S. T.  Elliott, Kelowna.  A apecial committee consisting  of Measrs. {Barnes. Copeland and  Bailey, interviewed the Hon. Mr.  Barrow, miniater of agriculture,  and told him of the new move.  He heartily endorsed the plan and  authorized the committee to proceed with the plans for the bringing into effect the Farmers' Union  of Britiah Columbia, which name  has been adopted pro tern.  Any work the committee has  done during its session will have  to be ratified by the thousanda of  members of the two associations  scattered throughout the province.  It is certain to come as a matter of  course.  The United Farmers as an organization became effective three  yeara ago when the association  was first established. Since that  time it has grown fairly rapidly,  but aa there was a general opinion  throughout the province that the  association should link up with the  institutes in one body, thia meeting  confirms this idea. The institute  members have also been of this  mind, and now the two associations have come together and have  laid plana for what is expected  will be the strongest agricultural  association that British Columbia  haa ever seen. In other provinces  the farmera have become so well  organized that they are mighty factors in their own sections.  A joint meeting of the Farmers'  Institute and the United Farmers  ia to be held in Kelowna on Friday  next, Auguat 8th, at which Mr. R.  A. Copeland, president of the United Farmers of B.C., and Mr. Bailey  chairman of the Advisory Board of  Farmers'Institutes, will be present.  May Send District  Exhibit to Vancouver  Mr. J. T. Little, representing the  Vancouver Exhibition Association,  waa in town today for the purpose  of awakening interest in the sending of a district exhibit from Kelowna to the exhibition in September. A $500 first prize and other  money prizes are offered, and the  management is prepared to make  a generous grant towarda the expense of such an undertaking. Aa  the Vancouver Exhibition is likely  this year to be the biggest affair of  the kind ever held in the province,  it might be a good thing to take up  this proposal if only as a valuable  advertisement for the diatrict.  Tpr. E. C. Small, of the Mission,  who left in May two years ago  with a 2nd C.M.R. draft, from Vernon, returned Monday. He was  transferred overseas to the Royal  Canadian Dragoons.  Results of School  Entrance Exams.  Gov.-General's Medal for Dis  trict Goes to Penticton  The results of the High School En  trance examination -which waa held  June 23-25 at 107 centres in the  province, were announced laat  weekend, by the department of  education.

Interesting Local  Wedding  The wedding took place last  Thuraday afternoon at the Presbyterian church, of Arthur Lemon,  lately returned from overseas, ro  Miss Jean Walker Louden. The  church was prettily decorated  with flowers and the ceremony,  which was performed by the Rev.  E. D. Braden, was largely attended,  both the bride and groom having  a wide circle of frienda in the diatrict. The bridesmaid waa Miaa  Jean Black, the bride being given  by Mr. T. Black. Mr. Lome Lemon, brother of the groom, acted aa  best man. Mr. H. Tod Bovd presided at the organ and a solo waS  sung by Mr. G. McKenzie. Following the ceremony a reception was  held at the home of Mr. and Mrs.  T. Black, of Woodlawn. After a  honeymoon spent at the ranch  near Black Mountain, Mr. and Mrs.  Lemon will take up their residence  on Cadder Avenue.  Lish Bailey returned from the  coast last Friday.  Dominion Convention  of War Veterans  Col. Belson Makes Interesting  Report of Proceedings  Last week we published a report  presented to the local G.W.V.A.  by Col. Belson, who waa aent as  delegate to the provincial convention at Vancouver. This week we  have received some notes regarding - the Dominion convention  which took place shortly after.  Delegates to the number of 265  were present, representing 450  branches, and a membership of  150,000. Many small branches in  eastern Canada were unable to  send delegates on account of the  expense involved in the long trip  to the coaat, but other delegates  held their proxies. In this connection opinion at the convention  seemed to be in favour of eventually making Port Arthur or Fort  vVilliam the permanent convention  headquarters.  The financial statement ahowed  a surplus of assets over liabilities  of about $19,000. In the ten  months ending April 30th last, the  Association has adjusted 20,000  cases for veterans and dependents,  or an average of 80 cases a day.  The "Veteran" magazine, the  official organ of the Association,  had 75,000 subscribers up to June  last, and the last two months is  showing a profit. It should be  more widely supported.  The Dominion secretary, Comrade C. G. McNeill, is a moat capable official and waa the most popular man at the convention.  It is intended to publish a report  in full of the work of the dominion  executive for the past year. This  report should result in many, veterans joining the GW.V.A. who  at present are -outside all soldier  organizationa. They should realize  lhat the G.W.V.A. works for all returned men, and at the aame time  for the best interests of Canada.  The government were asked to  refund the passage money of all  dependenta, including that of Canadians who joined the Imperial  aervice, and make the present order apply to the whole period of  the war.  The following clauses of the reaolution dealing with pensions  were of moat importance: I. Equalization of pensions paid to all  ranks on the basis of the present  pensions payable to an officer of  captain's rank ; 2. Citizens of Canada before the war, who joined the  British or French armies, to receive  the same pensions aa members of  the C.E.F.; 3. No deduction to be  made from the pension of dependents on account of any other income or benefit whatsoever ; J4.  The pension of a totally disabled  man and of a widow without children to be equalized ; 5. That the  Board of Pensions Commissioners  be empowered to revise the scale  of pensions from time to time in  conformity with the increased or  decreased cost of living, as ascertained by expert investigation.  The Parliamentary Committee  on Pensions have recommended  an increase of 20 p.c. in the pensions of all ranka.  A message was read from Col.  Biggar, of Ottawa, suggesting that  amall pensions paid for from 5 p.c.  to 15 p.c. disability be commuted,  jf desired by the pensioner, This  was approved.  The $2,000 bonus proposal led  to a strenuous debate of about  aeven houra, many of the speakers  rising to a high level of eloquence.  The delegatea favoring the proposal made it clear that this bonus  was not asked for in payment of  war servicea, but for rehabilitation  in civil life. There were many  cases of doctors, lawyera and other  professional men, who had lost  their practices, and had to atart life  anew, with the added handicap of  loss of professional knowledge,  and this applies also to skilled  manual workers. It waa also said  that this be a cheaper mean a of  re-establishment than the present  government schemes with their  large overhead expenses. On the  other hand, it waa pointed out that  this bonus would increase the public debt of the Dominion by at  least $600,000,000. and that the  aoundest system was to loan men  up to $2,000 without interest, on  the same system as the Soldiers'  Settlement Board.  An amendment strongly support-  Changes in School Staff  There will be several changes in  the school staff at the commencement of next term. Three of the  teachers have resigned���Miss Eva  Thompson, who has been married  at the coast, Mrs, Bowser and Miss  Ravmer. Owing to the growth of  the school population an extra teacher haa been appointed in addition to the three required to fill the  vacancies. The four new members  of the staff are : Miss Minnie Harvey, of Kelowna, Misa Austin, ot  Kamloops, Miss Bell, from Chilliwack, and Mias Kate Fullerton  The appointment of the latter will  be welcome newa to many who  knew Mias Fullerton during her  previous residence here, when she  was a valued member of the staff  for many years. She left Kelowna  four or five years ago for Toronto  to train as a deaconess, and for a  considerable time has been engaged in mission work amongst  the northern Indians at Norway  House.  Mrs. Jawsey was a passenger to  Ottawa this morning.  A picturesque band of gypsies  crossed the lake last Monday on  their way north, travelling, if you  please, in three big touring automobiles I They were held up in  Kelowna for a while and three of  the women had to go back with  provincial constable Graham, to  face charges of theft and fortune  telling. Being released on suspended sentence they were finally  able to proceed on their way.  ed was to refer lhe whole matter to  a referendum of the members.  This, Col. Belson sav, appeared  likelv to show just as strong a division in the Association as was  apparent at the convention, and,  after approaching the Calgary delegatea and their moat uncompromising opponents, and finding them  willing to compromise, he got the  two following resolutions r passed,  which eventually resulted in the  Convention passing practically  unanimously the resolution endorsing Bonus paymenta as the most  equitable system of re-establishment, and that the amount be only  limited by the country's ability to  pay. The resolutions referred to,  moved by Col. Belson, were as  follow!: " That the rules of order  be suspended in order that an attempt at compromise be made on  the Bonua Resolution and Amendments at present before the Convention." "That, as all speakers  seem to be in agreement on the  principle of a Bonua for the rehabilitation of the returned citizen, the  movera and seconders of the  resolutions and . amendments  should meet immediately with  Comrade Whittaker as Chairman,  to draw up a resolution embodying  these Principles."  "Personally," Col. Belson states,  "I am of opinion that the Resolution  as passed practically shelves the  question, because I believe that  after pensions to disabled men,  widows and orphans are put on an  equitable basis, this country will be  unable financially- to make any  Bonus payments, and I do not think  that any man in full posession of  his health and atrength should appear to want to capitalize his patriotism. This demand would never  arise in a country where military  service was compulsory, but if the  Dominion chooses to rely on volunteers it must always expect demands ol this nature. The irritating presence of the slacker in the  community after a war of this kind  ia apt to make the veteran value  his services rather highly, and justly  so, and the fact that the Government hsve taken no steps to make  the profiteer diagorge, caused more  bitterness at the Convention than  anything else."  Calder, of Montreal, made the  beat speech during the Convention,  in pleading for a better understanding between the French and English Canadian. He strongly attacked Sir Sam Hughea for the way he  handled recruiting in Quebec at the  commencement of the war.  The lunch tendered by the Canadian Club to the delegates on the  opening day, at which Premier  John Oliver and the Leader of the  Opposition were present, was  interesting through the impressive  way President Purney warned the  politicians that they would be held  to their promises.  Provincial Conservatives  Get Ready for Action  Will Hold Convention in Vancouver During September  The provincial Conservatives  have decided to gird their political  armor on and get into the next  campaign. The British Columbia  executive has chosen September  29-30 aa the date for the firat convention since 1914. It will be held  in Vancouver and the date ia arranged so that the 500 delegates  may visit the New Westminster  fair when they are not in convention.'  The principal business of the  convention will be the choice of a  provincial leader. The last official  assembly elected the late Sir Richard McBride to continue in command of its political fortunes, and  while Mr. Buwser was the choice  of the members of the House following upon the departure for  England of the former premier, he  has not vet been formally elected  provincial leader. The outside  delegates will be given an opportunity next September of either endorsing the action of the former  members of the legislature or of  bringing forward new talent. A  new party platform will also be  considered.  Baseball and Lacrosse  The Kelowna lacrosse team  went up to Armstrong last Thursday full of hope and determination,  but alas I although they made a  good showing and nearly vanquished that doughty foe, they fell a  little ahort and had to acknowledge a lost game by 7 to 6.  The baseball match between  Enderby prid Vemon, at Vernon,  was rather a surprise packet. Vernon has been rather out of the  running ao far in baseball and a  safe bet for the bottom seat, but  they managed to put it over the  favourites in the league race to the  tune of 13 to I. This opens up  fresh possibilities and perhaps  Kelowna���well, who knows?  To-day Kelowna is visiting Vernon where both the lacrosse and  baseball teams will play.

Troop Firat;   Self Last  Scheme to Settle  Britishers in Canada  Details of a scheme o{ far-reaching effect which the British government is ready to put into operation  for settling Britishers in Canada  were given in an interview on  Sunday by Lieut.-Col.. J. Obed  Smith, commissioner of immigration for Canada in London, who  said the Biitish government has  framed and is ready to put into  immediate operation as soon as  Canada is ready to co-operate, a  scheme for granting free transpor-  ation to some point of landing in  the Dominion to the following four  classes of people:  1. "Imperial ex-soldiers and ex-  sailors and their families,  2. "Widows nnd ftmilies of imperial soldiers and sailors killed in  the wsr,  3. "Women war workers, such  as those in the land army, the Women's Legion, etc.,  4 "Orphan children of ex-service  men."  Mr. Shanks, a former Rutland  resident, was an arrival Tuesday  on a visit to the district.  Mr. C. Wharry of Vulcan, Alta.,  is at present visiting his sister Mrs.  Geo. Cross.  Probably the most successful  dance held in the district for some  time was the one held last Friday  evening in the schoolhouse. In  fact there was a rather larger turnout thnn had been prepared for  and in consequence the refreshments were none too plentiful  The committee regret this and pro'  mise to rectify the deficiency next  time. Notwithstanding this every  body had a good time.  There is some talk at present ol  forming in Rutland an amateur  athletic association. Although the  local sports have been much betler  arranged this year, and much more  interest shown, there is need of  better organization in order to keep  the young men together. It is  likely that a meeting will be called  in the near future to discuss the  idea.  On Friday afternoon* boat an  other of lhe 172nd boys came  home���Pte. Wilfred Horsley, of  Rutland. He was in the famous  Vimy Ridge battle with the 54th  nnd has been in man) of the later  actions of the war, being wound- cl  at Bourlon Wood. His stay here  was very short as he left Tuesday  for Kamloops to pass the qualification board as a farmer, and wi  lake up land at Salmon Arm.  The third of a series of baseball  games between town and country  teams was played in the park before a very meagre crowd on Tuesday eveniug. This time the position was reveiserl and the Kelowna  team defeated the Rutland-Ellison  combination 4 3, The game was  fast and errorless for the first three  innings, but in the laat ofthe fourth  the country boys let things get  away from them and with a little  assistance from the umpire Kelowna succeeded in scoring four runs.  The visitors made a determined  effort in the fifth to tie the score  but were unable to do so. The  score by innings was as follows :  Kelowna ��� -0004 x-4  Rulland-Elison -0001 2���3  Umpire: "Pinkv" Raym-r.  Last Thursday evening the Kelowna baseball team paid a viait to  Rutland wilh the avowed intention  of avenging a previous defeat .at  the hands of the Rutland-Ellison  team. Luck, however, was not  with them and they finished up at  the small end of a 6���5 score. The  game was fairly snappy throughout and apart from the first innings,  errors were not numerous. Kincaid was in the box for the visitors  but it was soon appaient that he  was not in form, for the local boys  collected six runs before he was  relieved by DeHart.

O  Kelowna    Regatta   and   Peace  Celebration, August 13th and 14th.  Edited by "Wolf."    July 22, 1919  On Wednesday of last week a  business session of the Court of  Honour was held and as an outcome of this we are now able to  make an estimate of the expenses  and receipts of this year's camp.  We find that food, transportation,  wages otc, cost us $234 06. These  figures are much in excess of last  year but then we had forty scouts  at camp this year in comparison  with about seventeen last year.  Also we would like to point out to  some of our newer members of  the Troop in connection with the  food that when they go to camp  they cannot expect to live like  kings, and the very fact that they  did not starve may be shown by  the amount of grub that was eaten  this year. It has become very obvious that the smaller the scout the  bigger the appetite, and we had a  lot of small scouts this year.  With regard to the receipts we  find that camp fees of $3 a head  and donations amount to $135.15.  This includes the money which \vie  realized by auctioning what grub  we were not able to return to the  grocers, amounting to $5.15. Our  1919 camp will therefore cost us  $98.91 and we do not consider this  excessive when we remember what  a large and long camp we had.  We take this opportunity of thanking Messrs. Campbell, Fumerton  and Casorso Bros, for discounts  allowed and the McKenzie Co. Ltd  for a donation of $10. We also  wish to thank Messrs. P. B. Willits  & Co. for replenishing our First  Aid kit and Mr. Cross of the Dominion Canners for a gift of evaporated onions and potatoes, which put  the finishing touch to the excellent  mulligan we had at the railroad,  In connection with the Court uf  Honour several things were decided ; first, Second Leonard DuMoulin was appointed Troop Secretary  since both the former Troop Secretary, P.L. George Mantle and  Asst. Sec. P.L. Davis are absent  from town and there is considerable  work to be done in connection with  the expenses of camp.  Another thing that was decided  upon at the meeting waa that the  troop would take part in the Peace  parade which is to be held on Thursday.  August 14th in the City Park. Of course  the troop will parade in uniform so we  would ask all scouts to make sure that  their uniforms are intact, as the Regatta is  close at hand now. We have also decided  to have a scouts' relay race at the Regatta  instead of a scout handicap. This will  not necessarily be a patrol relay race but  will probably be a relay race composed of  three or four teams as nearly matched as  possible. All scouts who intend to go in  for it must have their time taken, which  can be done any time by the Scoutmaster  or Mr. Foote, only do not wait until the  last minute.  There are still some scouts who have  not yet paid up their camp fee. We drew  attention to thia in last week's column and  do not want to have to do so again. The  $3 is not at all an excessive price as we  have figured that each scout consumed  approximately $6 worth of grub during  the camp. Our accounts must be cleared  up soon now and until all the fees are  paid we cannot do this.  The first instalment of the winning camp  diary wil) appear in the next issue of the  column.  An order ot the Minimum Wage  Board of British Columbia, which  goes into effect on August 16, provides that the minimum wages for  girls employed in office work under the age of eighteen, are as follows: For the first six months of  employment, $11 per week; for  the second six months, $12; for  the third, $ 13; for the fourth, $14;  thereafter, $15. The latter rate is  the minimum for girls over eighteen.  Tractor  Work  We are prepared to contract for Ploughing, Discing  or Grading with Cleveland  Tractor.  Power Belt work up to  20 H.P.

The airplane performances will in themselves be great and alio afford the returned men in our midst an opportunity to  aee an airplanes 1 ahould have aaid perhapt. the returned men in whose midst  we are���there are ao many around now.  But the great feature of the occasion will  be the monster parade reaching all the  way from O.K. Centre to Peachland, forming a procession of I don't know how  many mites in length. Eh, what? Well  the regatta bills say so anyway. The  responsibility for the statement lies with  the committee. A writer in one of the  coast dailies is sure, that if Robert Burns  the poet, who died July 21st, 1796, had  not died on that date, he would certainly  have died July 19th, 1919, of shame, be-  cause of the poor turn-out of the Scottish  element at Vancouver's peace celebration.  It struck me, that if this contingency had  happened, as supposed by F. P., the writer of the paragraph in question, we would  have been justified in considering the poet  to be getting quite an old man.  While on the general subject of peace  celebrations, thoughts of the many Memorial schsmes} very naturally suggest  themselves. It is to be feared that the  first burst of enthusiasm has waned somewhat. It will be revived, of course,, and  when future efforts are made to realize  worthy memorials of the fallen, I, for one,  trust that those efforts will be dissociated  from dances, card parties and junketings  generally. Better and more appropriate  to have a less pretentious monument, the  outcome of effort made in a sober, chastened spirit, than a showy or even magnificent affair, paid for by funds raised  through fun and frolic  Church weddings or home weddings���  which is best? There is quite a lot to  be said in favor of the church affair from  a speetacular and musical point of view.  "The voice that breathed o'er Eden,"  flowers, frills and furbelows, Ace., are all  very nice in a way, but 1 humbly submit  that such a matter is too solemn an one  to be made a public spectacle of���which  remark reminds me of a story.
