 VOL. IV.   NO. 22.  KELOWNA. BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY,  APRIL 25, 1912.  $1.50 Per Annum.  Meeting of  City Council  Route Plan Submitted of Kettle  Valley Line from Vernon  to Kelowna  The council met at the usual  hour Monday morning last, his  Worship the Mayor and Aldermen  Blackwood, Taylor, Copeland,Sutherland und Millie being present.  The minutes of last week's meeting were read and the following  accounts passed for payment:���  W. D. Stoker, 4   nights'   work   at  power-house .... 10.00  K. Smith, 2 days' work on pole line 6.00  Wilfred A. Barnea,pruning city trees 46.00  Canada  Foundry Co., freight   paid  on pump.....      3.02  Aid. Blackwood was requested  to ascertain if all the city's trees  had been pruned.  The secretary of the Hospital  Society wrote acknowledging the  receipt of the council'^ grant of  $700 and stating that the Board of  Directors had placed the sum toward the contemplated maternity  annex to the hospital.  The hospital secretary also wrote  drawing the council's attention to  the fact that a quantity of brush  had been thrown on to the hospital  property on tho south side of the  road opened on the Marty subdivision. Aid. Copeland was commissioned to investigate.  A letter was read from Mr. R. S.  Gourlay, chairman of the Canadian  National China Famine Relief Fund  requesting the council to raise  money for the relief of famine  sufferers in China.  Petitions for the construction of  sidewalks in the following places  were received:���  On the south side of Beach Avenue  from  Abbott  Street lo  the entrance of Mr. G. F. James' house.  On the north side of Elliott Avci.ue,  from Pendozi Street to Richter  Street.  On   the   north   side   of   Cawston  Avenue,   from   the   south-west  corner of Block 41 to the southeast corner of Block 40.  On the west side of Richter Street,  from   the   south-east  corner   of  Block 40 to the north-east corner of Block 43, Map 264.  On the north side of Borden Ave.,  from Ethel Street to Bowes Street.  Mr. F. R. E. DeHart was present  in reference  to  the sidewalk   on  Borden Avenue. He said he wished  to have the sidewalk  constructed  outside the row of trees which had  been planted  there, oiherwise he  would not agree to have the walk  in at all.  A letter was received from the  secretaiy of the Department of  Railways, stating that the application of the Kettle Valley Railway  Co. for the approval of their route  map of the proposed line between  Kelowna and Vernon would be  considered by the Minister of  Railways on Friday, April 26th.  The letter was accompanied by a  blue print showing the proposed  route.  Aid. Sutherland suggested that it  m.ght be as well to get a plan of  the proposed location of the line  within the city. A resolution was  passed that the city clerk apply for  such plan.  A resolution was passed that a  charge for gravel and soil hauled  from the city's sewage farm be  made as follows: For gravel, 27c.  per yard ; for soil,-25c. per yard.  The appointment of an assessor  for the citv was then taken up, and  Mr. T. E. Cooper selected at a  salary of $275 for 1912.  The filling up of water runs on  private property came up for discussion, Aid, Copeland suggesting  that the council take steps to stop  this practice unless provision were  made for drainage. He also objected to people throwing garbage  into the sloughs.  Aid. Taylor believed that owners  of adjacent property could force a  person filling a water run on his  property to provide a drain of  sufficient capacity to carry off the  water.  Aid. Copeland reported having  received several complaints about  the lane at the rear of the Lake  View Hotel remaining closed. He  said he waa sorry to cause Mr.  Coates any inconvenience, but the  people were demanding that this  lane be opened.  Aid. Millie said he had seen Mr.  MacDonald, a former owner of the  Lake View Hotel property, who  had informed him that the position of the lane had been changed.  The mayor pointed out that a  letter had been received from the  Land Registry Office stating that  the location of the lane had not  been changed. Mr. Coates had  asked the council to delav action  until he had seen Mrs. Newson, the  owner of the property. He understood that Mr. Coates had just returned from a visit to Victoria  where Mrs. Newson resides, and  suggested that Aid. Copeland  should interview Mr. Coates upon  the matter and report to the next  meeting.  Aid. Copeland reported that he  had secured the grade for Ellis St.  from Bernard avenue to Cawston  avenue.  Mr. Clement submitted a rough  draft of a proposed sub-division of  Block 23, Map 202. He was informed that the plan would be  favorably considered when submitted.  Mr. Clement had a complaint to  make of the action of the scavenger in depositing refuse in the  slough on the north of the city. He  said it was a dangerous practi.se  and likely to be a menace to  health.  Aid. Sutherland said that the  owners of the property affected  desired to fill up the slough and  had requested the scavenger to haul  the rubbish there.  The mayor suggested that he  and Aid. Blackwood should make  a personal investigation of the  cause of the complaint.  A number of applications were  received for the position of fireman at the power house, vacated  by G. Goldsmith, These were referred to the Chief Engineer lo  report.  Aid. Millie drew attention to the  fact that a resolution was passed  at the last meeting of the Board of  Trade requesting the council to  levy a rate of one mill for advertising purposes. He suggested that  a vote of the electors be taken on  the subject on Wednesday next  to ascertain whether they were in  favor of such a rate or not.  Mayor Jones said he did not  think such a vote could be legally  taken except by the council passing a by-law authorizing such a  referendum. This was provided  for in the Municipal Clauses Act.  The meeting then adjourned until the following week.  Ok. Centre Conservatives Organize  A meeting was held at Okanagan Centre on Saturday afterroon  to form a Conservative Association  for the Okanagan Centre district.  Mr. A. Code was appointed  chairman of the meeting, and Mr.  Loveday, secretary.  The Hon. P. Ellison was elected  honorary president, Mr. N. H.  Caesar, president; Messrs. Mack-  ichan, Watt, Code and Caesar, vice-  presidents for their respective sections of the district; and Mr. G.  M. Watt, secretary-treasurer.  A committee was appointed consisting of Messrs Goldie, Caesar,  Watt and Code to draft out a set  of by-laws to be put before the  next meeting which is to be held  some time in June.  A marked spirit of enthusiasm  prevailed throughout the meeting.  It was hoped that Mr. J. W. Jones  of Kelowna could have been present, but Mr. Jones was unable to  come, the secretary being in receipt  of a letter expressing his regret,  which was read before the meeting.  Mr. Charles Harvey is busy on  the survey of the new subdivision  of the Grand Pacific Land Co.,  which is to be known as " Lakeside." The rough draft waa ap-  proved of by the council and the  completed plans are expected to  be ready in a few days. The property is io be placed upon the market about May 1st, Mr. DeHart  being the local agent.  Boy Scouts Exhibition  a Great Event  New Movement Gains Support  From All Sides  Last Thursday night was the  boys' night, and thoroughly did  they enjoy it, and a great impetus  was given to the already popular  Boy Scout movement in Kelowna  by the exhibition given by the boys  in the Opera House. A good programme waB put up by Mr. V. R.  Gilmore, who had been organizing  the movement in Kelowna, and  con��idering the fact that he had  only had the boys in hand for two  weeks, an excellent show of scout-  craft was made.  The programme opened with  drills, marching, etc., by the six  patrols, who worked very well together and did some good maze-  marching : followed by scout games  by the Curts Bros.' patrols.  Boxing between Mac. Copeland  and Dan McMillan proved a rather  humorous item, neither boy seeming to take it verv much to heart.  A climax, however, was reached  in the second bout when Copeland  siruck McMillan a blow which was  supposed to lay him out and break  the fo.mer's arm, thereby calling  Bruce Fletcher's first aid patrol into  the field who bandaged and dressed the wounds of the combatants.  Copeland, in spite of " medical  aid " proved irresuscitable, and had  to be carried from the ring on an  improvised siretcher made of  scout's poles and coats.  Some original stunts in the way  of tumbling were shown by W.  Duggan's patrol, whilst ladder  pyramids by McMillan's patrol  called for much applause and were  undoubtedly clever.  Wrestling between Charlie Shay-  ler and Willie Fletcher proved a  popular item, Shayler finally winning two consecative bouts.  Clarence Jones' patrol contributed to the programme a kind of  humorous turn called "The Cabin"  the chief feature of which was the  grand array of "artistic" costumes  with which the performers adorned themselves.  Mr. D. Meyrick assisted the boys  in their programme by singing two  songs which were greatly appreciated, and Master Earl Raymer did  a short clog dance, which was encored.  Altogether the scouts made a  splendid show. The lads seem to  have taken up the idea with great  zest and the movement should  prove more than successful.  Winnipeg Business Men's Trip  Abandoned  The commissioner of the Winnipeg Industrial Bureau has advised  the secretary of the Board of Trade  that the proposed business men's  tour of B C. which was to have  taken place in May, has been cancelled, The bureau was unable to  make satisfactory arrangements  with the C. P. R, as to rates, the  rates offered being much in excess  of the regular fare, so much so  that it was considered inadvisable  to go further with their arrangements.  The action of the railway in |  holding out for the excessive fare  is received with marked disfavor  by the bureau as in the past three  years the visits of the Winnipeg  Business Men's Bureau have resulted in the expansion of business  and trade relations between the  East and West.  Titanic Horror  Grows Worse  Nearly   1600  Drowned when;  Liner Sank  All through the past week the  press all over the world has been  filled with details of the ghastly  tragedy of the Titanic, following  the arrival in New York of the  rescue ship, Carpathia, with the  745 who were all that were rescued i  oul of the 2,340 passengers and  crew on the ill-fated vessel.  The thrilling narrative is filled  with stories of splendid heroism.  The ice-berg upon which the ship  ran practically rent the whole bottom out, and although the passengers failed to realize at first the extent of the damage, the Titanic  began to sink almost immediately.  The boats carried by the liner were  capable of carrying only a fraction  of its human freight, and when  these were filled, the rest could do  nothing but await their fate. Practically every woman and child,  with the exception of those women  who refused leave their husbands  were saved.  The most distressing stories are  those giving the experience of  passengers in the lifeboats. I hese  tell not onl)' of their own suffering  but give the harrowing details of  how they saw the great bulk of the  Titanic stand on end stern uppermost for many minutes before  plunging to the bottom. As this  awful spectacle was witnessed by  the groups of snrvivers in the boats  they plainly saw many of those  whom they had just left behind  leaping from the decks into the  water.  When her lifeboats pushed away  the steamer was brilliantly lighted.  The band was playing, and the  captain stood on the bridge Issuing  directions. But a short time and  the Titanic had gone to her doom  with the fated hundreds grouped  on the after deck. To the surviv-  ers they were visible to the last.  The frightful mental anguish and  bodily suffering of those who only  only half-dressed in many cases  waited around in the bitter cold for  the ship which picked them up  must be left to the imagination.  The incident is at once the most  pathetic and terrible in marine  history, and it will be long before  the world recovers from the shock.  The most searching inquiry is  being instituted on both sides of  the Atlantic into the cause of the  disaster.  Procession of English Church  Socialists  Dreamland is making next Thurs-  land a special display of the original " Jefferies - Johnson " fight  pictures.  A pleasant surprise is in store  for the theatre-going public of  Kelowna during the week of May  6th. The popular Irish comedian  Tom Marks, supported by a large  and distinguished company, will  appear in a repertoire of Irish comedies. It is unnecessary to boost  this company for Mr. Marks and  his company are known from  coast to coast and Mr. Marks has  the distinction of being Canada's  most popular comedian.  A remarkable scene was enacted  in the streets of London recently,  at midnight, when a procession of  five hundred Anglican Church  Socialists headed by Geo. Lanabury  M. P., bearing a cross, with the  Rev. Conrad Noel and the Countess of Warwick, walked from Westminster to the Archbishop's palace  at Lambeth to lay before his grace  a memorial expressing astonishment and disn.ay that the Bishops  of the Church of England had failed to frankly espouse the cause of  the workers in the recent industiial  trouble. The Archbishop of Canterbury was away, but his chaplain  accepted the memorial.  Former Kelowna Jockey  Killed  News comes from Calgary lhat  Percy Sautelle, the young jockey  who will be remembered as the  rider of Casorso's " Senator Warner " last year, is dead as the result  of a shocking mishap at the Horse  Show there. The horse he was  riding was a mean brute, and rearing suddenly threw Sautelle from  the saddle. His feet, however,  stuck in the stirrups and he was  dragged around the ring by the  frightened animal, his head bumping on the ground. He was struck  also in the body several times by  the horse's hoofs.  The injured man was taken to  the hospital where he lay for some  time in a precarious condition. It  was at first thought he would  recover, but a report has been  received that he has expired.  Meeting to  Discuss By-laws  Money Asked for Sewerage,  Streets, and Schools  There was an unusually small  attendance Tuesday night at the  meeting called by the council to  discuss the money by-laws. Mayor  Jones presided and expressed regret that in view of the important  matters to be discussed, more of  the citizens had not seen fit to  attend.  Mr. Thos. Lawson, the chairman  of the school trustees, spoke on  behalf of the by-laws to borrow  $10,000 for a site for the proposed  new school and $2 ,000 towards  its erection. It was not necessary,  he said, to speak at any length on  the matter. School accommodation  was already taken up almost to the  limit, and a new building had to be  provided. Two years ago they  had built a large brick school  which they had thought would  serve for the next four or five years.  The population, however, had increased so rapidly that the school  was already filled and all rooms  but one in the old building ; and  this would be taken up during the  present summer. The trustees  might have got along a little longer,  but there was no use in leaving the  extension until the last minute and  having to rent rooms.  He referred to the grant of  $35,000 which had been obtained  from the government towards the  new building, which it was stipulated must cost at least $68,000.  As to the site the trustees and  the council had inspected various  properties, and had at last decided  to buy some four acres a little  further along on Richter Street,  from Mr. J. N. Thompson. The  site was to cost $9,000, but they  were asking for $10,000 so as to  properly fix up the grounds surrounding the school.  The $25,000 it waa proposed to  borrow foi the building, with the  $35,000 grant, would include all  furnishings and equipment. The  new school would become the central public school while the present brick school would be used as  a high school.  Aid. Sutherland spoke on behalf  of the water extension and sewerage by-laws. He stated that the  the amount to be asked for under  the various by-laws would about  equal the city's borrowing power  under last year's assessment, but as  they anticipated that this year there  would be an Increase in assessment  of about half-a-million, next year  the city would have a borrowing  power of about $100,000.  Referring to the proposed extensions of the Water Department,  Aid. Sutherland said that $5,000  was required for extending the  pipe line, and $2,000 for a new  boiler. The extension of the main  he said, not only paid for itself but  made it easier for all the rest. Last  year's extensions had made possible reductions in both the light  and wafer charges and next months  bills would show a rebate of 33 1-3  instead of 25 per cent, as before.  The $35,000 asked for sewerage  purposes was slightly in excess of  what was estimated, but it was better to be on the safe side. This  amount was intended to cover the  cost of the main system, namely, a  cross main collecting sewer.a pump  to force the sewage to the sewage  farm, the disposal works and discharge pipe. All other sewers  would then be put in under the  local improvement by-law, the city  borrowing the money and charging it against the property benefitted.  The present estimate for this  main work was about $25,000 and  if that was all that was required,  only that amount of debentures  would be sold.  He regretted the absence, through  illness, of Aid. Ravmer who was  chairman of the committee in  charge of the work.  Several questions were asked as  to the location of the proposed  sewers and other details which  were answered by Aid. Sutherland.  It was stated that adequate caution would be taken to have the  initial system large enough lor all  possible extensions and to have the  whole work well laid out before  Allen Players at the  Opera House  Excellent Repertoire of High-  class Plays  The visit of the Allen Plaveri  for a full weeks run at the Opera  House has awakened no little interest amongst local playgoers who  are seldom treated to such a brilliant round of high-class comedy  and tragedy as is included in the  diversified repertoire which this  excellent company have brought  with them.  The series opened Monday evening with " The Third Degree," a  powerful modern play giving scope  for some clever character studies  which were well sustained. Miss  Verna Felton, the leading lady,  whose marvellous adaptability and  versatility is making a name for  her throughout the west, showed  to good advantage as Annie Jefferies, while Mr. Irving Kennedy took  the role of the clever lawyer with  a distinction which places him in  the front rank. Good work was  also done by Messrs. Ralph Belmont and Chas. Conners, as Howard Jefferies and Capt. Clinton.  On Tuesday a no less attractive  piece was produced- " Divorcons,'  and on Wednesday Tolstoi's great  drama " Resurrection," in the pro-  duclion of which the company  have spared neither effort or expense. The many dramatic situations in which the play abounds  were cleverly rendered. Miss Felton, as Katusha, was a distinct  success, showing a capacity for the  portrayal of intense emotion,which  drew rounds of applause from the  audience. Mr. Irving Kennedy,  Mr. Ralph Belmont, and Mr. Chas.  Conners, the latter in the comedy  part of Sirnon, and Mrs. P. R.  Allen, as Marfa, are worthy of  special mention, though the acting  on the whole was remarkably good.  The music is being supplied by  the Royal Hungarian Quartette  under the direction of Mr. Joseph  Schranks, and is not the least  attractive part of the programme,  while the singing of Miss Gladys  Hudars is being highly appreciated.  To-night the bill is the " Lottery  Man," and on Friday "Camille."  Saturday afternoon there is to be  a matinee performance of " Merely  Mary Ann." On Saturday evening  the engagement terminates with  " The Transgressor."  The household effects belonging  to the late provincial constable  G. H. Aston were sold by auction  last week. Good prices were obtained, the bidding being spirited'  at times, and there was an evident  desire in many cases to obtau.  souvenirs of the deceased officer.

Whitehead railed the  only protest against the installing  of a sewerage system. He questioned the necessity for It at the  present time. We had a healthy  city, he said, a good sub-soil, a drv  air and a low death rate, and there  was consequently no need for  sewers. In four or five years the  city would be in a better position  to handle the problem.  Mr. Whitehead, however, failed  to find any support, and several  speakers strongly advocated proceeding with the installation.  Aid. Copeland then took up on  behalf of the Board of Works first  the by-law for authorizing the building of an incinerator, for which  purpose the surplus from the implement shed by-law of last year  was to be used. He had advocated  the building of an incinerator last  year es affording a solution of the  difficulty experienced by business  men   of   disposing  of   inflamable  Continued on pat* 6 The Orchard City Record.

The ratepayer's meeting held  I uesday evening for the consideration of the six money by-laws  wliich are to be voted upon next  Wednesday, May 1st, failed to attract more than some fifteen or  twenty people. Something of this  poor attendance was due to the  wet weather, but it is to he feared  more still to the surprising lack of  interest shown by the average  citizen in the business of his own  city. The council desired to consult those whom they were elected  to represent, relative to the spending of some $97,000 of their money,  but strange to say the electors did  not want to be consulted.  Of course their silent acquiescence may by looked upon as a  compliment to the present governing body, who, if they look at it in  that light, should certainly feel  gratified that so much trust be reposed in them.  But it would have been more  satisfactory all round, and the  council could have acted with  much greater confidence if the ratepayers had assembled in force and  endorsed their proposals.  It is true that the by-laws although involving such a large  amount of money, do not admit of  much discussion. The council of  a city like Kelowna is like the  lather of' a growing family. From  time to time new needs and obligations are placed upon him which  he simply cannot avoid. And he  doesn't want to if he is worthy of  the name.  Kelowna keeps growing out of  her clothes and new ones must be  bought. The money now needed  is simply to meet the natural expansion which must come to a city  so favorably situated as our own.  There was practically no opposition raised at the meeting to any  of the measures, except, curiously  enough, in the cane of the proposal to borrow money to inatal a  a sewerage system. It seems strange  that anyone in these days should  regard a sewerage system as "unnecessary " to a city the size of this.  Unnecessary, forsooth! I tie steps  being taken by the present council  will be welcomed as the realization of the hopes of sevenl years.  Without doubt the most pressing  need of Kelowna today is this same  sewerage system, which has only  been delayed so long from fear of  the expense involved. It was believed to be such a mighty undertaking that it was quite ou( of reach.  Ihe recent investigations or the  council, however have shown lhat  the foundations of a good system,  at least, are quite within tlie compass of the city's finances, and to  what better use, we ask, could the  money be put.  It is unbelieveable that anyone  would wish to continue longer with  the present crude, inefficient and  inconvenient method of dealing  with the sewage. Kelowna has a  splendid record for health, freedom from infectious diseases, and  want of encouragement to undertakers ; but surely there would be  no sense in waiting till this fair  reputation is dimmed by an epidemic. It is not a concession to  ' real estate men," it is a matter of  personal safety ; and if the citizens  are wise the by-law for raising the  necessary funds will be passed  without opposition.  There is only one other by-law  which is open to any discussion.  That is the by-law for raising  $20,000 for permanent work on  Bernard Avenue and Pendozi  Street. Most people will appreciate  the italics - though don't be too  exacting! No road was ever made  which will last for ever, and road  work costs like the mischief.  Kelowna has spent and intends to  spend a good deal of money in  advertising the city and inducing  people to come in, and it is only  reasonable that something should  be done to induce them to stay.  Nothing gives a stranger a better  impression of enterprise and business activity than handsome stores  and buildings and clean, wcil-kept  streets. We are getting the stores  all right, and it is high time the  council began to provide the  streets. No definite plan has been  worked out, but it is the intention  we believe to fix up the business  section of the city so that it will  look like a city, and to grade, drain,  level and improve   the  two   main  highways in as thorough a manner  as the money wilt permit.  Aid. Copeland has given the  assurance that the money will only  be spent alter the fullest investigation of the best modern methods  and materials within reach, and  that if possible expert supervision  will be obtained.  As for the school by-laws���well,  as the genial chairman of trustees  says, " It is no use talking, it has  got to be done."  Get in Line  " No business man in anv town  should allow a newspaper.published in his town to go without his  name and business being mentioned somewhere in its columns," says  an exchange I his applies to all  kinds of business-- general stores,  dty goods, grocers, furniture dealers, inanuf during establishments,  automobile dealers, mechanics,  professional men and in fact, all  classes of business men. 1 his doe*  not mean that you should have a  whole or half or even a quarter  page ad. in every issue of the paper, your name and business  should be mentioned if you do no!  use more than a two line space. A  stranger picking up a newspaper  should be able to tell just what  business is represented in a town  by looking at the business mentioned in the paper. 1 his is the  best possible town advertiser. The  man who does not advertise his  business does an injustice to himself and his own. He is the man  who expects the newspaper to do  the most free boosting for his town.  The man who insists on sharing  the business that comes to the town  but refuses to advertise his business is not a valuable addition to  any town. The life of a town depends largely upon the live wideawake and liberal advertising business men.  I     " What made you so late ?

He also  hoped it would have the effect of  doing away with the nuisance of  paper flying about the streets.  Coming to the question of borrowing for stieet improvement he  said $20,000 might seem a large  sum, but he felt that the time had  come when the city should do  something in the way of permanent  improvement of the streets.  It was intended to deal first with  Pendozi Street and Bernard Avenue, but not a dollar would be spent  on gravelling until they had been  properly graded and drained.  He advocated getting the best  possible man to oversee the work  in expending ao large a sum.  With respect to material, he  believed that block pavement or  asphalt would be too expensive.  They had been fortunate enough  to strike on the sewage farm purchased last year, a bed of gravel  which would provide a magnificent  material for the streets for 20 years  to come, and more than enough at  25c, per yard to pay for the whole  farm. He would not say that his  suggestion would be carried, but  he thought a heavy coating of this  gravel with a top dressing of  crushed rock would give a road  which if properly drained and oiled  would last for all time.  Aid. Taylor and he had been  lately calling upon residents on  Pendozi Street wilh the object of  having that road widened, and had  met wilh good success. Some 35  had signed a petition and only 12  more remained to be seen, so it  was quite probable that the street  would be made 66 feet right  through.  The committee bad gone over  every sheet in the city and felt  confident lhat all money from current revenue could be spent apart  from the two main streets, and lie  strongly urged the acceptance of  the by-law in order that the two  main streets might be made a  credit to the city.  Mr. Lawson, speaking again on  the school by-laws said that if they  carried all plans would be submitted to the council and a public  meeting before going ahead.  The city clerk corrected the  statement of Aid. Sutherland that  the city's borrowing power would  be exhausted by the present bylaws. There would still be about  $54,000 left on the old assessment  and the new assessment would  raise the borrowing limit by $100,-  000 more.
