 VOL. IX.   NO. 1,3.  Kelowna British Columbia, Thursday, February is, 1917.-4 pages  $1.50 Per Annum  Suggested Legislation  of Interest to Farmers  Advisory  Board of  Farmers'  Institutes Submit Many Proposals to Government  A new and important policy oi land  settlement will ba laid before, tha gov-  esnment, fathered by tba Advisory  Board oi Farmers' Institutes, wbioh  haa just oompletad a session in Victoria, urging that tha government  saleot areaa oi good lands in various  portions of tha province lor homesteads, leaving the balance ol unalienated lands closed until suoh time as  the selections made shall nave beau col  onized. In other words, the plan  meana tlie, settlement ol areaa by concentration, voiding .ne necessity ol  new roads to out-ol-the wuy places,  and systematizing the transportation  problem without interfering with general settlement of British Columbia, and  by co-operation, increasing development. * Under tho plan advanced no  other lands would be pij-mitta-j to bo  taken up until the colonization ol tie  selexoted .ands had been oompi.y.j 1,  and the areas exhausted ior but pur  pose. The board also endorsed ihe  idea of co-operative land settluniont,  us it applies to returned soldiers  Another recommendation mads by  the Advisory Board oi Fatmer's IubU-  tates whioh recalls ths days when ,\a  tal aot was a bone oi contention ii  British Columbia political circles ii  that laid before the minister of agriculture by John It. Brown, oi Vernon  and seconded by Hubert MoBride, oi  ���South Vancouver, to the effeot that  the provincial government enact such  legislation as will debar Orientals irom  acquiring titles to agricultural lands  in the province.  The danger to the live-stook indus-  ' try through tha unrestricted export oi  female breeding cattle pother than pure  brad stock) iroitn ths Dominion, has led  the Advisory Board also to urge that  for the period oi the war tho export of  such breading aattls be prohibited, und  that tha provincial department of agriculture maloe representation to the  Dominion government to that and  Within 'the past two years American  buyers have, roduoed the stock until iv  achas become a serious matter to the  future oi the industry.  At present the Advisory Board  deems it inadvisable to take ,any  action in tha matter of establishing provincial experimental {arms. The  board approves oi schools and demonstration works on lines similar to  those in vogue in Alberta, but in view,  oi present financial conditional does  not deem il wine to undertake any  new scheme involving large outliy.<.  In fact ths board bad before it man)  important recomn lend itions approved  by various Farmers' lnsti-utas in nil  parts of the provinoe, but as these  called for outlays t .hey'were not passed  on to the government.  With this' idea oil economy in view,  the board will reoo.mmend to the gov  ernment that the oi aforcomont ol tho  provisions of the No��ons Weeds Act  in unorganized port! ions of the province be placed in the hands of the  provincial polios a) ad fire wardens,  and that the present system of inspectors to perform this   work be abolish  Passes Away After a  Long Illness     '  The death took place on Saturday last of Mabel Annie Duggan,  the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T.  Duggan, Pendozi Street. The deceased girl, who was a little over  seventeen years of age, had been  a sufferer from heart trouble most  or her short life. About 9 months  ago she developed more acute  symptoms and though every effort  as made that medical skill could  devise, it seemed impossible to do  more than afford temporary relief.  The funeral took place Sunday  afternoon, service being held at  the house at 2 o'clock. A large  number of friends and sympathisers were present and many floral  tributes were dent. General sympathy is expressed for Mr. und  Mrs. Duggan in their loss.  by the government (or the benefit of  the whole people; the limitation of  assessments on farm lands, while cultivated by bona-fide settlers, to what  tho said lands are worth for farm  purposes; that the department oi agri-  branch of the lands department supply  to the farmers well-boring outfits, the  work to be done by the, ,;jM."nnie. t,  and the cost of operation to be borne  by the farmers .benefitted; ran extension  of school holidays to permit employment in fruit picking; the umalgntn,.-  tion of farmers' institutes in any one  district with a view to eliminating unnecessary expenditures; the limitation  of indemnities of reeves to 15)0 an J  of councillors to 8100 per you,'; legislation whereby fees charge! by* loan  companies to borr.wcrs !.�� lignl expenses, searches of title, etc, will be  limited to the amount of fees now  charged to borrowers by the Agricultural Credits Commission; the appointment of a looal government board to  have control of municipal borrowing  and expenditure; the supplying ol  hand stump-pulling machinery to '  mere' institutes on tho instalment plno  of repayment; the granting io women s  Institutes of the annual government  grant now being paid to farm-'.M' in-  stitut*S4  It was proposed to ask the govsru-  mont to amend the piesect .Vgri'iul  tural Aot so, that the provinoe will be  divided into six farmers' institute dis  tricts, each distriot to name a member  of the advisory board, subjeot to confirmation by the minister of agriculture, the district to bs fixed by. tho  government.   ���  The Advisory Board passed resolutions of appreciation to Premier brew-  ster for his notion in naming 'a practical farmer as minister oi agriculture,  and also thanked the department ol  agriculture for the appointment of Mr.  It.

Ralph Smith, the new minister of  finance, has caused a postponement  of the opening of the provincial  legislature to March I st.

O  The National Servioe directors are  still in session at Ottawa considering  what action is to be taken following  the tabulation of the replies to the  questions sent to all Canadians between the ages oi 16 and 65. It is  generally anticipated that provision  will be made ior ths taking of an industrial census. Steps also will be  taken to ascertain how 'many soldiers  will be willing to aettls on tbe land  after the war.   ��   In Mesopotamia ths British have  gained another looal success.

The matter is being  taken up by the Board of Trade.  Mr. and Mrs. T. Duggan desirel  to thank their many friends for  their kind sympathy and assistance  duiing the long illness and death  of their daughter, for the many  letters'and personal expressions of  condolence, and for the floral tributes sent. \  The following letter from I'rivate J.  Symonds, of the 4th Battalion, lately  in France, but now lying wounded in  hospital at Forth, Scotland, has been  received by his parents, Mr. and Mrs.  J. Symonds, of Kelowna. I'rivate  Symonds was wounded in a tight for  the German trenches during November,  and his description of that memorable  event gives a vivid glimpse of what is  being endured by the boys in the Ur-  ing line.  We had to cross over a horn.aid  yards of "No man's land," he says,  before we could get at the Germans.  Well, ws left our trench at six o'clock  in tbe morning. You seo, I naa in  the machine gun section, and 1 had to  cross the first line of German trenches  and take up a position between tneir  first and second trench. I got there  all right enough, but I lost the rest of  my gun crew getting over. Three of  them were killed as my side, so 1 �� as  left alone with nothing but i machine  gun and ajbout 400 rounds of lead, nnd  I sure turned that gun like mad into  the Germans' front. Ths liuns t,oun  got wise to where my machine gun  was, and then they started to sheil us,  and sent over all kinds of shells, big  and little. I oould not see anything  for smoke anal gas from their sLvils,  so I thought it was time tor me io  move, and you bet I did. I picked up  my gun and struggled through the  mud. It was up to my knees, but 1  managed to travel about fifty ymds  to the right. By this time I was  nearly out of my head, but every time  I would get sight of a Hun's helmet  I would turnHhat wicked machine gun  onsit. Itwas a terrible bell for hours  that day, and the Huns fell before our  guns like wheat before a binder. But  we lost very heavily too.  "Well, Iworked my gun all alone until I had no more lead lott. 'i'hen 1  tried to get back to our Uenoh with  the gun, but soma Hun caught .ne  and sent a bullet through the left side  of my neck and out the back of the  right shoulder. It sure knocked me  over, but I did not loss my head. I  just laid down in a shell-hole, and  hung on to what life was left in mo.  I Was bleeding at the left side of my  nock, and tbe blood was coming out  ofmy mouth. My right arm was dead  from the bullet hitting my shoulder  (it was fifteen days before I could  move a finger). I took my revolver in  my left hand, and waited for the Hun  who had shot me. I had a nuudred  yards to get back to our boys, but I  knew I dure not try it while it was  daylight, ior every time our wounded  moved ths Huns would firs nt) th-in.  I knew they thought I was dead, for  I showed no sign of life, and I was so  close to their line I oould see what  was going on. 1 knew as soon aa it  waB dark they wouM come ou< looking for their their wounded, and as I  waa lying with their wounded I knew  I would be taken prisoner and sent to  a prison camp in Germany. I was getting very week irom bleeding, and I  made up my mind to get bank to oua  boys. It was not yet dark, hut I  started to moke that, hundred yards  on my hands and knees, but you can  bet your life I hung on to that revolver, ior I knew that the Huns were  watohing me. I had not prone five  yards before they tried to get me, but  they missed by a few inches. I got  into another shell hole, and they  could not get me with rifle fire so long  aa I stayed there. Well, some oi our  boys found rae 5n that shell hole forty  hours later. I had been lying in the  mud and water all that time, nnd of  course during that time I had kaown  nothing. When I oame too and found  f - was with our boys instead oi the  Huns I just thought I was in heaven.  I was the only one left out ot tbr.t  gun team.*'  PaiiesVa Symcans It Mrs> happlV re*  /.  Conditions Atfaciied..  to Granting of ttie  Temporary Loan  Council Object to Being Forced  In Matter of Indemnity��� Testa  Show Coal No Cheaper  Than Wood Fuel  The application of the oity ior a  loan irom the Bank oi Montreal a-  gainst .this year's taxes fur current  expenses has been granted only upon  condition that a tax sale be held during the present year, that evsrv possibly economy be exercised, and that  the mayor and aldermen lorego theii  indemnities, 'and servo grat'i 'I'his  was contained in a letter from ihe  Bank considered at a special meetir.g  of tbe council Wednesday inorr.ing.  Tho decision to hoic? a tax sale tdt  already been made, and economy in tlie  council's middle name; but .tttei-o is a *  strong diversity of ���prnijn in tho  council reg'arding tho question of indemnity. One or two of li.e members  are disposed to favor foregoing any  remuneration') while others are strong  in their contention that '.lu nUlcrmen  should be paid soinciTn; lor iho lime  sacrificed in looking after pubtio bust- -  more especially, they say, as a  largo proportion of the taxpayer's aVe  not residents of the city, and it is noe  right that such owners should have  their interests looked after tor nothing  Thero was, however, a dispndition all  round to resent the dictatorial t >no of  the letter, and the implied interitre'Ke  with tho work of the ooiacil. L'rin  alderman indignantly claimed thai it  oast a reflection upon the utKrUrgODce  of the council, and endeavored to  force their hands ia a mutter uLiclr if  done at all should be done voluntarily.    ���   .  There was much discussion on the  matter, and a deputation was sent out  to interview the Bank, but no real  conclusion was arrived at. It was  hinted, however, that the question of  payment of aldermen would come tp  again ��� later. ���        7  In the meantime a by-law win,, put  through authorizing the borrowing of  810,000, which is a quarter of what  will probably be requlrij,  Aid. Duggan reported that ths ttn.s  mode at the power houso to dotcrrain��  the relative economy of wood and coal  as fuel had resulted in demonstrating  that the cost was practically the  same. Two different 1-mds of coil! find  been tried: PrinJeton nt tVt.50 per ton  required seven tons oor day, and Can-  more at $6-30 required five tons. This  waB equivalent to seven cords of wood  at SI.50 per cord. Thus the figures of  831.50 per day were precisely the.sime  Further tests were being made by use  of a meter to measure the water evaporated, but it seemed as though there  was very little difference. It had been  necessary to purchase 200 cords of  slabs from Messra. Max Jenkins & Co.  as the cordwood was running low, and  there would be no sawdust for, some  time. He stated however, t.liat there  would probably be a considerable supply of sawdust and slabs later on.  Aid. Hattenbury said mat if ooal  was no choaper than wood they might  as well buy wood and keep the money  in the district.  Aid. Buck announced that there wns  to be no more testing of the fire siren  on Mondays. This was partly in deference to the mony complaints whioh  had been made, and also because tho  testing did not seem to achieve tho  desired results.  Aid. Harvey mentioned that some  further work had been necessary on Ihe  Pendozi street bridge. On Saturday  last a horse had broken through tbe  planking, wbioh ,was accordingly teing  renewed in plaoes. It was !i-ini done  in suoh a way that it oould form part  of any permanent work whijn udtjht  be done later. He had also made  enquiries ' respecting permin-mt work,  and had rerniested two contractors to  investigate as to the best ^vay to b>-vo  this done.  The matter ol a oity auditor wt,s  again taken up, and a resolution was  passed appointing Messrs. Crchan,  Martin, & Co. at a Balary of $200.  A resolution was also nuascd n<;  pointing Messrs.

Westbank News  (tram ear a*ra Corr.sr>OD,l.Dt,l  Miss Hewlett was a passenger  to Kelowna and back Friday.  Mr. J. H. Campbell was a visitor  to Kelowna Saturday.  Miss Weeks ha? been paying a  visit to her parents at Penticton  this week, leaving here Fiiday  night, returning Monday.  Miss Whiteworth the teacher  from the Peachland Townsite  school was a visiter to .Westbank  this weekend, being agueatof Mrs.  Washington Brown,  Mr. J. W. Jones, M.P.P., was a  guest at the Lakeview this week  during his visit to address the  ranchers of Westbank on the advisability of increased production.  Pte. J. Tolhurst left Tuesday  morning for Victoria, where he  will undergo further medical treatment. The best wishes of the people of Westbank go with him.  A collection was taken at the  social Monday night to purchase a  clock for the schoolhouse. This  augmented by later contributions,  amounted to the sum of $10.  The news of the death of Mrs,  Thomas Sharpe came as a surprise  to many who knew of her illness  and operation and were not expecting her to pass. She leaves  her husband and five small children to mourn their loss.  The directors of the Westbank  Irrigation Co., are asking for quotations for flume lumber. It is their  intention to put in quite a length  of new flame this spring as many  of the ranchers are growing alfalfa  which requires more water than  fruit trees.  It .has been suggested that we  have a gathering similar to Monday night's once a month. It would  do ua good to get together more  often and, remember, we shall not  want a clock every time, only your  song or recitation���and basket.  Mr. Estabrook, of Summerland  collector for overseas Y.M.C.A.,  came up on Sunday with Pastor  Rowland to give hia congregation  the latest items of news from the  front in connection with the work  among the boys. He had some  very interesting, some amusing,  and some very pathetic stories,  also a few collecting envelopes for  those who wish to become regular  contributors to that most deserving  fund.  In response to the suggestion to  hold a aocial at the schoolhouse a  good number of ladies came laden  with baskets well filled with the  necessities of life. At six o'clock  the company sat down to supper  which was enjoyed by all present.  After supper a free and easy conversation was carried on for an  hour when a programme which  hnd been arranged waa produced  and an opening song " The Best  Old Flag on Earth." was sung by  the audience, after which snugs  and recitations followed in quick  succession, Pte. J. Tolhurst rendering three songs, Mr. James Duncan  two splendid recitations, and Miss  Lily Davidson sang " A Laddie in  Khaki." A hearty vote of thanks  to lhe ladies for their generosity  and to the chairman brought a  very enjoyable meeting to a close.  The regular monthly meeting of  the Farmers' institute was held in  lhe schoolhouse on Tuesday night  when after the usual buainess had  been settled a resolution which  had been passed on from the directors' meeting for the consideration of the members, viz., "Shall  the Japanese who live among us  De allowed to become members of  .Ire Institute," was submitted.  A very heated discussion followed after which it was decided  to write deputy minister W. E.  icon to see, il possible, what was  the opinion of the Institutes of the  piovince upon the matter. It was  n.-i.i decided that the membership  ne be one dollar for the present  year.  Tie chairman then called upon  Mr. Jjnes, M.L.A., who had been  wa .ing patiently through the de-  oate, to address the meeting. After  the applause had died away Mr.  J'.i.ies said it was true we were  never too old to learn. He had  listened with pleasure to the discussion and thought the Farmers'  Institute was certainly the clearing  house of ideas of its members���it  was their forum���and he hoped  the advisory board would present  the resolutions in a businesslike  manner. He was in favor of the  usual convention and thought it  much better than the advisory  board. He expected to be going  to Victoria soon and was taking  this opportunity of visiting his riding to see what special use he  could be to his constituency. He  exhorted them to do their best in  the way of production, for to produce all they could meant being  patriotic themselves.  Canada had enlisted 434,000  men in all units, of which 280,000  had gone overseas, and Canada  had to feed these men, so that they  must keep up production. There  was plenty of scope for the farmers in B.C., as the demand had outstripped the production. As an  example, we only produced one-  ninth of the butter we consumed,  and had to import livestock and  meats, eggs, honey, hogs, lard, &c.  { f Kelowna hadjmade a good start  with their creamery, last year making 75,000 lbs. of butter, realizing  for the patrons $25,000 or an  average of 23c per lb. of butterfat.  Regarding the Westbank locality,  he had no doubt we should get a  share of the model farm here.

During the past two years lollow-  riit; a policy of refusing to sell on  consignment, the Okanagan United Fruit Growers has in a measure  brought the Mutal Brokers to terms,  wilh the result that Union members  have been getting somthing like a  fair piipe lor their fruit The story  now is that failing in their endeavor to buy from the shipping concerns on consignment the Nash  people will get into to the orchard  districts themselves and endeavor  thereby to strike a blow at the cooperative shipping and selling concerns.  How much of this is well founded cannot be ascertained at the  present time, but the statement  that the Nash houses intend to buy  direct (rom the orchardists of the  Okanagan in 1917 has been given  general credence.  to put if up by auction. He had  been in communication with Mr.  Brewster on the irrigation problem,  and hoped this grave question  would be settled in the near future.  The estimates for roads had  gone in early, although he had  been asked to be moderate in his  requests. He had included estimates (or the wharfs, &c. Mr. Mc-  Alpine, the new rond superintendent, had been making the round,  and he had no doubt they would  find things verv favorp'ole considering the times. ����.';:,  A hearty vote of thanks to Mr.  Jones for his instructive and interesting address brought the meeting  to a close.

Feb. 24, 1917  a  Orders by Command for week  ending 24th February,   1^17.  DUTIES: Orderly patrol for  week, Otters; next for duty, Beavers.  PARADES: There will be the  usual Patrol meetings during the  week at the call of the different  leaders. Saturday the 24th is last  day for those to pass their tests  who tried but did not pass before  the end of January. None of the  scouts who wish to go to camp this  yeai can go unless they are retaken on the strength before the end  of February, and they have only  six months altogether if they ever  wish to rejoin.  Ihis week we are attending the  per Iniiiiances at the Kelowna Public School in aid of the most worthy  object, the Canadian Patriotic  Fund, on Thursday and Friday  evening. On Thursday evening,  the performance, which opens at  7 o'clock, is for children only and  an admission of 10 cents will be  charged.   On Friday it   opens   at  8 o'clock and the admission for  everyone will be 50 cents. We  trust vou will all do your best to  advertise the concert.  We shall soon have to be getting  ready for our own concert, which  we shall hold somtime between  the first and middle of May. We  shall have the assistance this year  of our pack of Wolf Cubs, who are  coming along famously with their  wmk under Cub  Master Gordon.  We inspected the exhibition  building on Saturday last, where it  is proposed to play basket-ball,  and when we get the place cleaned out, and the approaches a little  less muddy, we should be able to  have some good energetic physical  exercise and fun there. We hope  to have our first practice some time  before the end of the month. If a  league can be organized in the city,  we should be able to field at least  one team. There are only five  players in a team, two forwards,  a centre and two guards. You cannot run with the ball, but can take  one step with it. You can only  check with one arm at a time and  must not slap, hack, punch, trip, or  body check your opponent. If you  think that it ia a lady's game, you  .will change your opinion if, you  ever get into a streuous game.  A goal from the field counts two  points, and from a free shot, one.  Your opponents are awarded a free  shot every time you make  a foul.  It seems a small little world.  S. M.

He  is, by the way one of our esteemed  linesmen and haa done some good  work out here. May be able to  tell you about it some some day."  This can be none other than our  late Assistant Scout Master Ken  Jepson and we are very glad indeed to have our troop so well  represented there, and to know he  is doing such good work. We  shall certainly be glad to hear more  of it. We hope that several of you  now you know his address, will  write to him.
