 tatrfo  VOL. IX.   NO. 44^  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA; THURSDAY.  SEPT. 20, 1917.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  ">-.  S  fci*  Uniform Fire  Protection .By-laws  "Clean-up Weeks" Would Reduce Fire Losses  The city council met Monday  morning in regular meeting���there  being very little business, however,  on the agenda.  Some correspondence from the  the secretary of the Dominion Association oi Fire Chiefs was read,  pointing out that at a recent convention ol the asaociatipn, the  question of fire prevention had  been carefully considered and it  had'been decided that a committee be formed to prepare standard  ciyic by-laws in regard to fire protection, fire extinguishing, and the  inspection of buildings for fire prevention' purposes by members of  fire departments, and also for the  storage of gasoline and ezploaives,  'so that there should be as far as  possible a uniform law governing  these matters. It had been learnt  that'manv chiefs of fire departments had no power to' require the  cleaning up of buildings where  necessary to ��� prevent the starting  up and spreading of fires, while  in other cases very little power of  any kind was given to fire chiefs.  It was felt that the chief of the fire  department was trie proper official  'to deal with these matters, backed  up when necessary by the fire mar-  shall or fire commissioner for the  province. Committees were now  at work on these by-laws.  A copy of a resolution passed  at the convention. deaKiuj with  " Clean-up Days " was also :for-  worded as follows: "That whereas  a large part of the fire loss ti this  country is caused by the accumulation of rubbish and combustible  matter in and around buildings,  the association recommend to municipal councils as follows : " That  the weeks commencing with ihe  first Mondays in the months of  May and October in each year be  known as 'Fire Protection and  Clean-up Weeks,' and that a systematic campaign be undertaken  to gather up and destroy all rubbish and combustible material  during the said weeks as part of  an effort to reduce the fire loss of  Canada and Newfoundland."  Mayor Sutherland reported that  it had been suggested that the city  Council and Board of Trade take  'some action in reference to the reported intention of the C.P.R. to  reduce' the boat and train service  through the'winter months. It was  decided, however, that there was  not sufficient information available  to take any official steps at present.  Aid. Rattenbury stated that in  the course of a conversation during  the past few days with Dr. Ilsley.the  provincial veterinary inspector, the  latter had informed him that during  his present visit he had tested several of the principal dairy herds,  and found them -without reaction.  He would be returning in another  month to test the remaining cows  in .the district. ,  On the suggestion of Aid! Rogerson it was decided to retain the  services of Mr. Balsillie, parks  foreman, until the end ot October,  or until his wprk was completed.  Aid. Duggan reported a gratifying increase of $550 in the water  and light rates for August over the  same period, of last year. There  had also been twenty new connections made during the past month.  An application of the C.P.R. to  have more lights placed upon their  trackage was referred to the committee. >.  A by-law to fix the 30th of November next as the. last day upon  which cdrrent years taxes could be  paid so as to receive the one-  eighth rebate, was given three  readings.  While Tory England ia demanding the right to form what President Wilson-denounces as ''selfish  exclusive economic leagues," the  Trade Union Congress of England  hy a vote of 2,339,000 to 278,000,  adopted a resolution expressing  its unalterable belief in the policy  of free trade for Britain.  Prairie Fruit Markets Bulletin  B.C.   CANTELOUPES  The past two weeks has seen  the B.C. canteloupe on the Calgary  market. They come from the Okanagan valley and" vary a good deal  in size and variety, but the quality  is uniformly good. The bulk of the  prairie supply comes from Tap-  ponish and they are very fine specimen's. They-are packed in the  broken pack style and, are very  uniform in size due to long experience in the work. This is a fruit  that could stand a big increase in  the acreage as our canteloupe  comes after all the others and but  for Washington competition has a  clear field. They are selling at $3  per crate, slightly larger than an  apple bbx, and are retailing at 15c  each or two for 25c. Many of them  are coming by express which is a  needless expense as they would  ailive in good shape if shipped fn  mixed, care.    ,. .  West Summerland, Kelowna and  Naramata are all shipping. It will  be neceaaary to. discard most of  the varieties and grow not more  than two. The red fleshed varieties  are moat popular and the Honey  Dew is the best seller. There should  he room oh the prairies for car lota  of these canteloupes as the B.C.  stock arrives just after the berries  are over and they are in demand  for dessert.  WINTER APPLES  The B.C..apple growers had-better get on their thinking cats and  figure out some method of supplying the prairie provinces during  March, April and May as at this  season the market is supplied from  Washington and Oregon and no  matter what the fall prices are the  spring prices are always good.  At present the prairie figures on  buying all the apples they have  storage for and long before many  varieties have come to their best  they are sold and consumed. Some  of the merchants do not know the  seasons of the apples and buy and  this point should be corrected by  B.C. shippers .who could perhaps  enclose a leaflet in each box telling when that variety would be at  its best and its approximate keeping qualities.  There is no reason why these  merchants should not store away  all the apples their trade calls for,  but shippers should reserve the  long-keepers for the spring trade.  This would enable them to sell  more fall varieties that winter varieties now take the place of. and  also keep B.C. fruit on the market  at all seasons. This may be difficult to arrange for just now when  building material costs so much  but we will.be. in the fruit business  a long time and we may as well be  up-to-date. There is too much  money tied up in apple production  now to allow the want of any  needed improvement to retard our  marketing facilities. Therefore,  better storage facilities for cooling  and refrigeration will be fit subjects to think about in B.C.  MIDDLEMEN  A farmer raised a peck of wheat  not far from Calgaree;   -  A b'oarder ate a wheaten loaf 'way  down in old B.C.  The loaf the boarder fed upon  - cost half as much, and more,  As did the  farmer's   peck of  wheat a veai or so before.  "Now, why is this" the boarder  said; "they hold me up- on  bread" ,  .  " And why is wheat "so bloomin*  cheap !>" the Northwest farmer  said.  A guy beyond the Rocky Mts.  raised 30 pounds of pears;  Another guy in Winnipeg was  kickin' like three bears;  For he had downed a glass of 'ade,'  the poor, forlorn galoot I���  Had paid one-half the market price  of 30 ppunds of fruit.  "Now, why is this, they soak me  .  ~ so, for this wee sip of' ade')"  " And why, exclaimed the or-  , chards man, am 1 so poorly  paid?"  Now   hold   your   horses  steady  thete, you jay. in Calgaree 1  Go easy there, you hungry guy in  sunny old B.C,  Forbear yourself you orchard  . man,    restrain     your   angry  speech;  And you beside the soda fount,  Canada's First War Shrine  Beautiful memorial erected by the residents of Esqu.malt, B.C., in honor  of their volunteers for the great war, after unveiling on August 26th *  by Brig.

Wigglesworth Was One of  First to Join 172nd  On September 6th, according to  a wire received this week, Lance-  Corp. A. Wigglesworth, of Rutland  was killed at the front, adding another name to theheavy toll which  has beta paid by that district. As  is usual the telegram which arrived  Monday|to the grief-stricken widow  was brief and gave no details.  Inured as we are becoming to  these sad stories, there are few  who will not feel the keenest regret and sympathy as they recall  the happy-faced "band" of the  172nd (he was its only member for  some time) as he led the couple of  dozen or so boys who first joined  the company, to the strains of  "Marching thro' Georgia" and a  varied collection of airs which included even well-known hymn  tunes. His cheerful and never-  tiring flute made even the older  stiffs step with a smarter air as the  boys swung jauntily down the main  street. He was one of the first to  join the company and one of the  best of that gallant little band.  Corp. Wigglesworth had resided  in the Rutland district for the past  six or seven years. He was a  Yorkshireman born and bred and  a typical specimen of the " Armley  squarehead." Solid, industrious  and always cheerful and unassuming. He spent several years on the  prairie in the Regina'diatrict where  he was married, his wife being one  of the Craig family who are now  alao residents of Rutland.  He leaves a family of four young  children the youngest-of whom  was born since he left for France,  and whom consequently he has  never seen.'  Memorial mention is to he made  of his death at the evening service  Sunday in the Baptist church.  Mrs. W. Lloyd-Jones and Mra.  W. D. Brent went up to Vernon  Tuesday as delegates to the Women's Institute conference irom  Kelowna.  suspicious of a leech;  Remember this:  Our meat  and  drink   no   matter   where,  or  when',  Must also be the meat and drink  of twenty Middlemen I  (With epologios to the origin*! poet)  Lake tt Service  Will Be Curtailed  Alternate Day Trips Through  Winter Months  Kelowna and the whole of the  Okanagan will be affected if a  rumored policy of more economical operation of the CP.R. boat and  train lines is carried out. This  would mean curtailment of the  service on both the train and boat,  and a return for the winter months  to the alternate day schedule which  obtained eight or nine years ago.  No change,, of course, could be  made until the end of the fruit  season.  The announcement issued hy  Supt. MacNabb of the C.P.R. is as  follows: " The demand made by  the United States navy on the fuel  oil supply has led the American  government to compel the oil companies to cancel all except their  long-time contracts. Even the  amount of oil available under three  year contracts and over is limited,  owing to shortage of tank ships,  due to so many having been commandeered for naval use- The oil  restriction has put an undue demand upon the available coal.  With a view to economizing in  fuel, the Canadian Pacific Railway  contemplates as a war measure a'  curtailment of the winter train service on the S. & O. It is proposed  [to make no radical change until  the fruit shipping season is over.  After that the passenger train will  run on-Monday, Wednesday and  Friday, with boat connection on  the lake. On Tuesday, Thursday  and Saturday the way freight will  tun with coaches for passenger accommodation. On these days it  will take somewhat longer to make  the trip. Since the Kettle Valley  gives service to the southern end  of the lake, the passenger boat is  not expected to run on Tuesday,  Thursday and Saturday. The so-  called " stub run " from Okanagan  Landing to Vernon and return to  connect the boat will likely be  discontinued.  Main line trains in British Columbia will be substantially the  same as laat year, as this service  is as considerate of fuel consumption as even war conditions can  demand." ^H  Dr.  Mathison was a visitor to  Penticton yesterday.  News of Near  Neighbours  The irrigationists of Summerland  recently attempted to relieve the  water shortage by opening up some  beaver dams on the headwaters of  Trout Creek. The industrious  beavers, however, have closed  them up again, necessitating another trip.  The Kamloops Silver Mines,  Ltd., non-personal liability, has  been incorporated at'Victoria, and  will open up and put a mill on the  silver mine near Adams Lake.  New cheap methods of oie treat'  ment and doubling the price of  silver have transformed this old  mine to a profit maker.  Information is required as to the  name and address of the next of  kin of No. 687723, Pte. William  David Cartwright, who enlisted in  the 172nd Batt., C.E.F. Will anyone who can give information  please communicate with Major  C. L. Wain, drill hall, Kamloops,  B.C.  What was probably the largest  shipment of livestock ever sent  out from Vernon left last week  when the Land and Agricultural  Company of Canada sent out a  train of I 7 cars containing 2,071  sheep, which had been purchased  bv A Fehr, of Savona. They were  a mixed lot of ewes, wethers and  rams, and were sold for about $28-  000, or an average of $14 per  head. They were Shropshires of  fine quality, and the deal is perhaps  the largest of the kind ever made  in this province.  Famine in Fruit Boxes  The fruit growers and shippers  in the Yakima, Wenatchee and  Walla Walla fruit - producing districts of Washington are experi'  encing no end of trouble in getting  their box requirements. The big  demand, coupled with inefficiency]  and shortage of labor, has crippled  the output of the mills and factories usually supplying this trade so  that the fruit growers are in a precarious position, being faced with  the prospect of having no boxes in  which to'ship their fruit to market.  The situation is so serious that  the fruit shippers, growers and box  manufacturers recently met in Spokane and many concessions in  grade and style of manufacture  were agreed upon to help the situation. Two and three-piece ends,  sides and bottoms are being accepted as standards in future, and  a minimum factory prioe of 18c  was agreed upon for apple ahooks.  The growers and shippers fully  realized the increased costs of mil]  and factory operations and willingly met the increased price, and  accepted the grade reductions as a  matter of conservation of national  economy. A full canvass of the  situation revealed fhe fact that all  box ' factories were behind with  their contracts and four million  more boxes were needed if the  truit is to reach the market.  Several of the British Columbia |  box factories refused large orders  from the Washington shippers,  feeling it was their patriotic duty  to take care of the requirements of  the Okanagan and other fruit producing centres at home.

The residents of Glenmore who  have suffered heavily this year  have been moving atringly in 'the  matter, and it is underatood that  the liquidator of the Kelowna Irrigation Co. haa arranged to spend  a considerable sum of money in  order to put the system in better  shape lor another year. Plans  have already been prepared for a  new dam at the headwaters of  Mill Creek. This dam will increase  the storage capacity by about 400  acre feet, or from 750 to 1150  acre ' feet. Considerable repair  work is also to be done throughout  the system, and a contract is being  let for the scraping and painting  of the inside of the steel fluming.  '  Farmers of the Ellison district  who use water fiom Scotty creek  have also . made arrangements to  put in work there which will ensure a better supply of water for  the future. In this case there is no  company, but the users concerned,  representing about 1000 acres,  have assessed themselves one and  a half dollars per acre to piovide  funds to put in a new dam which  would bring up their storage to  about 500 acre feet. It is also -I  hoped that sufficient money will  be available to flume the water for  some distance down the creek, as  it is found, that a great deal of water is lost from the present ditch  before it reaches the distributing  system at all.  During the past system the Canyon Creek Irrigation Co. has put \  in something over 3000 feet of  new fluming in order to cope with  the demands made upon their water supply.  Rutland News  Church ol England service will  be held Sunday next at 3 o'clock  in the afternoon, at Rutland.  Mra. Fitch, who has been visiting  her brother, Mr. Clever, for the  past two or three weeks, returned  to Calgary yesterday.  Mrs. S. Gray and Mrs. Maxwell  are the delegates sent from Rutland  to the Okanagan Women's Institute  conference at Vernon this week.  Mrs. Plowman also went aa ���  visitor. ���  The Rutland Women's Institute  met laat Thursday. It was Red  Croat afternoon and the tea given  for the purpose realized $3. A  collection for the prisoners of war  amounted to $5. The attendance  was not very good, as people are  too busy just now picking fruit to  attend meetings.  Wedding at Ok. Centre  A,t Okanagan Centre on Friday  last, September 14th, the wedding  took place of Dugald Keith Mac-  alister to Miss Kathleen Dora Morris. Miss Macalister acted aa  bridesmaid while the groom's man  was Mr. Frank E. Loveday. The  bride was given away by her mother. The ceremony, which was performed by the Ven. Archdeacon  Greene, of Kelowna, took place at  the home of Mrs. Duke. A reception was held on the lawn, following which the happy couple left on  a short honeymoon trip. On their  return they will take up residence  at the Centre. /  PAGE TWO  KBLOWNA   ftSCOM  Thursday, September 20,1917  ������"���������������������l j l|l��l|ll|ll| �����!   ���    >'l��lltl.��HS>S��..tllttl.��>.Sti.  *���    PROFESSIONAL AND    ������  �����       BUSINESS CARDS      �����  BURNE & WEDDELL  Barrister,  Solicitors and  Notaries Public,  B.

G.W.  AUCTIONEER  and  General Commission  _  * Merchant  (Successor to J. C. Stockwell)  Second - Hand Goods  Bought or Sold on  Commission   *  Flour and Feed Always  in Stock  Next to the C.P.R. wharf,  Kelowna  Now that the "kickaninnies" (or  ''kokanees," to be strictly correct)  are beginning their annual run  from the lake up the creeks to their  spawning grounds, fresh attention  is being drawn to the awkward  prohibitory legislations which were  passed recently. As pointed out  tome time ago it has been made  illegal to take any of these fish  with the popular methods of gaffing or scooping them up wirh <  chicken wire net, and unless people want to ran the risk of a fine  it looks as though they will have  to leave them severely alone.  The Board of Trade lately had  some correspondence with Ottawa  on the subject, but nothing satisfactory has come of it. Although  the regulations were issued b^ the  Dominion government, it seems  that the fishing in non-tidal, waters  outside the railway belt is owned  and controlled by the Province.  Regulations affecting such fishing  are usually adopted on recommendation from the Provincial  I authorities, and the Dominion department declines to consider any  changes in the law unless the suggestion comes from trre Province.  So, it anything is done, it seems  that our own provincial fisheries  department must be converted  first.  The federal department officials  indeed seem disposed to be perfectly satisfied .vith things' at they  are, for they point out that " the  regulations contemplate reason-  ble fishing operations for kokan-  es." The reasonable fishing  operations referred to consist in  the use of gill nets, which is permitted each week from Wednesday noon to Sunday night. Tbe  mesh must not exceed three inche  when fully stretched and not more  than two hundred yards must be  uaed. It is just as well this latter  restriction was mentioned as there  might be many people who would  set out with even more than six  hundred feet of net to catch a few  fish for supper I No doubt the  idea was to prevent anyone from  stretching a net clear across the  lake and scooping out the whole  of the fish at one crack.  an  As an ideal food Rice can  j not be surpassed, and in  time* like these especially,  when the cost of living is so  high, it will profit you to use  this highly - nutritious food  more extensively.  1 ry our newly-arrived.clean  highly-polished Rice.

Sep. 18th, 1917  We very much regret having to  again record the loss of another  staunch and loyal member of our  Troop, this time in the person of  Patrol Leader Thomas Snashall of  the.Eagles, who on Saturday last  left for Vancouver. He is going to  work in an engine shop ; with the  ultimate idea of brooming a locomotive engineer, and if our good  wishes can help Kim he will soon  be lhat. We hope he will be in  good time to pull the first C.N.R.  train into Kelowna. Alao, when  we go to camp in future, if we can  only arrange* to have Tommie at  the throttle, we should have an  easy settlement of the transportation problem. .  It is beyond our imagination just  now how we can put on a concert  without Tommie's assistance: Can  we ever forget the " Monkey  Scout" with the old gentleman  who slipped on the banana ski  and "The Little Lads in Navy  Blue" ? Scouts, patrol leaders  and scoutmasters may come and  go, but our old bunch never will.  Good luck, Tommie, and may the  cinders from your big locomotive  never grow cold!  Immature Potatoes  Are Better for Seed  Experiments Prove They Yield  . Better Crops  Potatoes which have not fully  matured give better yields than  fully matured seed. This haa been  proved by experiments conducted  at the Ontario Agricultural College  at Guelph for the past five years.  The practice of planting immature  potatoes is quite common.in England.  The farmers of thit country  should follow the tame practice  and should combine it with hill  selection. When the potato vines  are beginning to ripen, the rnost  vigorous hills can easily be noted.  Vigorous tops above ground usually mark a good yield of potatoes  underground. The vigorous hills  should be dug at the time the  selection is made, providing it is  late enough in the autumn to insure  the potatoes keeping well until  next spring. When the potatoes  in a hill have particularly atrong  tops, are of good size and' yield  well, they should be kept for seed.  In hills which do not yield satisfactorily, however, the potatoes should  be used for cooking and not saved  for seed. An examination of thi  field at this time of the year will  demonstrate, that some hills have  resisted bugs, disease and drought  better than others, and that the  yield of certain hills is higher than  others. The disease-resisting and  nigh-yielding hills will produce a  better crop than seed taken from  the common bin or from the planting of small potatoes, as is often  the case.���F. C.

They will entertain with  many'high-class Hawaiian selections. This provides an opportunity for people in Kelowna to hear  and see this wonderful troupe in  real life arid to hear tome of their  weird music so often heard of.  The company it booked dirept  from San Francisco's world's fair,  and it one of the biggest novelty  hits of the tea'ton.  What with all the losses to the  Troop we have suffered, and those  on leave of absence, we have had  to rearrange and reorganize the  patrols very extensively. While  we have not yet ascertained the  detailed marks, we have not much  doubt but that the Beavers have  won the shield for the past season,  with the Wolves a close second.  We have therefore rewarded its  members who were in camp by  promoting' every one of them.  Also as the patrol leaders have the  final say at to whom their second  will be, we thought it best to reduce all the present seconds to  the ranks. The reorganization hat  therefore resulted in patrolt being  as follows:���  Beavers���  Leader, H. Crowley, who is also  Troop Leader.  Second, George Mantle.  Scouts, J, Groves, B.  Davis, F.  Duggan and L. Gaddes.       ->  Wolves-  Leader, Charles Gaddes.  Second, Th  mas Taylor.  Scouts, S. Whitehead, C. McKenzie, A. Clarence and C. Cunningham.  Eagles���  Leader, J. Calder.  Second, L.

All the scouts in the Beavers are  ex-seconds and it is from this patrol we expect promotions to be  made. The Beaver patrol of last  season is out of existence; its  members who were responsible  for ita succett were: Leader Jaa.  Calder, aecond Chas. Gaddes, nnd  Scouts Ralph Weddell and Geo.  Mantle. We congratulate the leader and his scouts on their success  very much indeed. They will be  entitled to cany the King's and  Troop Colors on any parade up to  the end of next season.  We know of some good turns  patiently waiting for the good  scout to come along. Who wishes j  to know what they are ?

Express shipments of fruit and  vegetables have this week touched  a high-water mark, and have taxed  the capacity of both the staff and  the transportation facilities.
