 \'\oXowtOwt��'y  Jkcori)  VOL. VII.   NO. 15..  KELOWNA. BRITISH COLUMBIA THURSDAY. MARCH 4, 1915.���6 PACES  Meeting of the    I  City Council Friday  Will Consider Matter of  moval of Garbage  The council met last Friday  morbing with a full attendance  of members.  A letter was read from Mr. .1.  F. Moflat, fire chief at Vernon,  asking the council to quote a  price on the old hand fire engine'  The clerk was instructed to  state that the council were willing to sell the engine for {150.  Mr. R. Duncan waited on the  council to protest against their  action at the previous meeting  io allowing the Roller Kink exemption from licence fees, lie  pointed out that the rink was a  business competing with his  own and other amusement places and he could see no re.itton  why they should be given any  such preferential treatment. Ihe  argument had been advanced hy  the proprietor of the roller rink  that he was not doing much  more than clearing expenses.  That, said Mr. Duncan would  apply with equal force In almost every business in town at  the present moment.  The council admitted that this  aspect of the case had not occurred to them. It had been argued that the ice rink had not  paid any licence and it liad  therefore seemed at the time  quite just that the roller link  should be exempted in the wune  way. They agree now that t) c  matter was brought to their attention, that the rink was certainly a competing business and  to exempt it from licence was  hardly fair to Mr. Duncan, who  was paying large taxes to both  the city and the govcrnmenv.. It  was therefore decided to collect  the usual fee from the roller  rink.  The contract with Mr. A. K  Davy for   the   scavenging w tk  for the next year was read ever  and the Mavor and Clerk  authorized to sign it.  Alderman Ravmer asked some  questions regarding the charges  made for hauling garbage to tne  nuisance ground, and this raised  a general discussion on u-e  question af garbage removal,  and the efficiency of the present  system. ^^!��^Za��Z  Mr. J. Leathlev, addressing  the council urged that in the interests of the general health and  sanitation of the city some definite action should be taken in  regard to garbage disposal. He  contended that the present ns  tern of leaving it to householders to notify the scavenger when  to remove garbage was very unsatisfactory as a great manv  people neglected to do this, with  the result that unsightly and  dangerous heaps of refuse, old  cans, etc., were allowed to at-  cumulate and remain sometimes  for two or three vears.  He contended that the council  should make provision for per  iodical clearing of refuse, ami  that a regular contract lie let  for this purpose, similar lo that  for removal of nip-ht-soil, snd  the cost collected from householders in the same way.  Mayor Jones said he was perfectly in agreement with ttnse  views and he thoueht the health  committee should take tha \mt-  ter into careful consideration.  It was arranged that thc  health committee should hold a  special meeting to go into the  question.  Alderman Copeland (rave notice of motion that at thc n.xt  meeting he would introduce an  amendment to tbe trade lia-tncc  by-law, with reference to iltr.  licencing of banks, etc.  Thc weighty question as to  whether a dog was an animal or  not according to law was raised  in a report from the city solicitors on the Dog-licence By-law.  The council, however decided Lo  take chances, and assume that  it was, and the by-law was finally passed.  At this   juncture a long   list  $1.50 Per Annum  Kelowna Volunteers  Given Royal Send-off  Majority  Were Old Members  of Fire Brigade  Last Thursday evening a large  company consisting of members  of the fire brigade and then-  friends he,d a little banquet in;  thc Oxford Grill in honor of the  voung men who formed the con  tingent the majority were either active or old members, of the  brigade, who naturally wished  to take leave of their comrades  in good style. After the banquet the company adjourned to  the fire hall, where with musk  and speeches and high jinks generally a big hole was made in  the next day,  were given a royal send oil   on  the boat, they having been noti-  at  passed, but   which arc unavoidably held over until next issue.  Alderman Raymer asked     if.  in view of the apparent deprecia  tion of property values, whether  the loans made from the city's  d    I sinking   funds   were still qttite  "e"'good.  Mayor Jones said that the  very greatest caution had been  used in granting the few loans  which had been placed, aud .ill  that remained unpaid were amply covered bv food security.  Corrected by-laws dealing  with local improvements were  given a first, second and third  readings. <  The council was asked to rati-,  [fy two loans from private   pur-1  ties of $506 each at 9 per cent.,  for a term of eight months.  The question of relief work  was mentioned, it being stated  that no work was in progress at  present, with the exception of  one man in the park.  Thc advisability of pulling hi  another storm drain on thc  south side of the main street  was discussed and it was decided to earn- out this. 1 ._ , ______  ���    Alderman Copeland suggested fled to join a special train  that a branch be put in    alone* '"  Water   street   by   the     Opt; a  House,   as   this niece of .ilr-ct  was often in a verv bad   condition.  Ma--or J. W. Jones made reference to the loss which Mr. T.  W. Stirling had sustained in the  death of his eldest son, and the  following resolution was passed:  "That we learn with deep regret from the public press of the  death of Robert Stirling, eldest  son of T. W. Stirling, on th.*  field of battle in France, and;  that the citv clerk convev the  condolence of the citv council I  Mr: Stirlinp-."  Mention was also made of the  several members of the fire brigade who had volunteered for  service in the war, and a resolution was Dassed of "aoprecia-  tion of their public spirit and  devotion to our country, the  council wishing to express their  confidence in their ability to reflect credit on our city.'1  Thc council then went i'ato  committee to consider proposals  brought forward by Alderm.in  Ravmer for a general reduction  in the salaries of all city employees. No decision, however,  was arrived at and it was decided to hold another committee  meeting of the whole council  prior to the regular mectin.r  next Friday morning.  Poultry Association Meeting  The annual meeting ��f the  Kclowna Poultrv Association  was held in Raymer's hall on  [Tuesday last, Mr. C. C. Piowsc  taking charge of the proceedings. The secretary's report  and financial statement lor thc  vear having been read and adopted, the officers were elected for  the ensuing year.

He regretted thc unfortunate .1-  nancial depression which had  been forced upon the who.e conn  try by the terrible war, but  which it was the duly of everyone to meet with fortitude. "I  am an old British Columbian,"  said Mr. Ellison, "and in ill"  own experience we have passed  through a number a>f depressions, when no war. allot ted the  situation, quite as serious as  this, and each time we came up  smiling and prosperous. '  The estimated revenue for the  vear ending March jij 1914 was  510,326,08s and the actual reve  nuc $1038,266. The estimated  expenditure was S17.S38.266 mid  the actual expenditure Sl5,~6J.-  412. So that he pointed .out.  the estimates were closely lived  up to. To some extent the reduction in actual expenditure  was due to unexpended approbations, but to a considerable  decree to the exercise of various  economics.  The estimates of the revenue  .and expenditures of the proviu:e  were brought down in ,the legislature last Friday. The estimate  of revenue and receipts for the  fiscal year ending March 30,  1916, totals $7,034,615.13, while  the expenditure is placed at $ 11,  163,056.11.

This suggestion was favored by  Mr. Ennis, who advised that a  committee be appointed to gj  thoroughly into thc mailer.  Speaking of the present local  aspect of the poultrv business,  Mr. Harry Davis urged a more  optimistic attitude. If even-  poultry keeper would join the  association and give it his support, some system of marketing could be arranged, and conditions tfould be improved.  Votes of thanks were passed  to the retiring ollicers for thc  year, particular mention being  made of the secretary, who had  performed his duties in a most  energetic and cheerful manner.  Mr. Prowse said he would like  to see thc secretary receive  something more substantial  than a vote of thanks for his  services, but it was decided to  let thc matter stand over for  the present.  The executive is to meet next  Tuesday, March oth at 8 p.m..  in the Farmers' Institute mom.  Thc distance from Penticton  to the coast, over the Kettle  Vallev railwav, via Hope, is  254 miles, - via Sicamous it is  452 miles.  The Vernon Board of ��� Trade  at its annual meeting passed a  resolution congratulating the  Very Rev. Dqan Doull, M.A., on  his elevation to the bishopric of  Kootenay and expressing the  hope that due consideration  would be given to the claims of  Vernon as a residence for the  Bishop.  Thc fire brigade were railed  out about 9.30 last Saturday  evening to a fire which had  started in an empty house on  Lawson avenue belonging lo Mr,  Cooke, who resides at the coast.  As the place has been vac tnt  for some time past it is difficult  to understand how a fire could  originate. Fortunately the brigade arrived promptly enough  to avoid anv serious loss, the  damage apart from water damage, being confined to a cupboard under thc stairway.'  One large Ncw York hotel  finds use for about 1200 small  electric motors in addition to  about 1000 that drive fans.  Mr. Thos.

Near thc entrance to  the C.P.R. wharf it joins the  one which has already been laid  on the north side of the street.  Advertising is the education  of the public as to who vou are,  where you are, and what you  have to oiler in the wav of skill,  talent or commodity. The only  man who should not advertise  is the man who has nothing to  offer the world in the way of  commodity or servr'ee.  The net debt of the province  was $20,748,746 and the sinking  fund amounted to $2.56*,e>8.  Consider the assets of the province and the targe sums in arrears on account of land stiles,  which with accrued interest and  taxes amounted to approximate  lv Si5,000,000, he considered  this liability as verv small, especially as compared with the  other western provinces which  do not possess land, timber and  mineral resources, and with our  own municipal indebtedness,  which amounts to $03,400,000.  When we considered our large  natural assets, practically all in  the control of the government,  S20 - - ��� 000 was a very small  debt indeed.  Tne province was in a ver>'  sound financial position. If it  were not for the war they could  borrow heavily, but it was incumbent upon the government  at the present time and for  some time to come to carefully  husband available resources so  that al no time during the war  or after it the credit of British  Columbia mav be at all impaired.  For this reason the government had largely curtailed its  usual expenditures and, following the example of other governments affected, decided not to  embark during thej?resent year  upon anv new schemes of development or put into effect any  new policy. As the Prime Minister had put it, it was a period  during which thev must mr.ik  time and await thc results of  the war.  The estimates for 1915-16 had  been framed with a view to existing conditions. A reduction  of revenue, due to the war was  anticipated to reach $3,000,000,  and such a reduction meant  their coats according to lhe  cloth.  Expenditure Reductions  In reference to expenditure it  was not possible, on account of  certain fixed charges, to leduce  it to an amount which would  balance the receipts and at the  same time provide for the proper administration of the public  service. Under the head of public debt, owing to new loans  $541,737 had been increased to  51,152,376. Civil government  salaries have been reduced troll"  $1,744,375 to $1,709,146. tinder  this head the government had  reduced the staff to what might  be termed an efficient working  minimum.  The most substantial decrease  was in the matter of works and  buildings, in which the estimate  of $2,319,500 was reduced to  S455a7o��- The explanation of  this was that during the last  few years a large amount of  money had been expended in  providing for necessary buildings, the necessity for which  will decrease from now on until  the population had been very  substantially augmented. In  roads, streets and bridges a reduction of about $400,000 from  $2,861,000 last had been made.  It will be seen that there is a  reduction of ^1.000,000 in     thc  The Public Debt I exPenditures as between the last  fiscal year and this.  Progress in Agriculture  Dealing with agriculture, Mr.  Ellison thought the country had  made a remarkable showing. In  fifteen Important products there  had been an average percentage  of increase of 700 per cent since  1894. Home production in 1914  had increased over 1913 by more  than $3,600,000. The greatest  increase occurred under the head  of dairy cattle. In dairv products the increase was $419,600  over 1913, or 16 per cent. Beef:  and pork marketed shows 62  per cent., since 1913. Poultry  increased by about 20 per cent  Timber and Forestry, Mining and Fisheries.  In spite of the unprecedented  conditions created by the vat.  the total production of our forest industries was valued at no  less than $28,500,000.  During the past two vears  the government had made a  careful study of the timber industry of the province in order  that anv action taken to promote this industry be based on  full knowledge of conditions.  This study, up to thc present.,  had consisted of a review of the  sources of supply upon which  the timbeT importing countries  of the world depend. In the  course of this review, information had been received which  had alreadv led to thc jjla.v  of foreign orders in British Columbia.  In general, mining has been'  more adversely affected by the  war than anv other industry.  The reason for this was that  thc base metal���copper and lead  ���which form thc greater part of  our mineral output, arc exported, chiefly to Europe, and i��s  these metals are contraband of  war, the export had been greatly reduced.  Thc fisheries of the province  for the fiscal year, which will  end March 31 next, will show an  appreciable increase in value  over those of the preceeding 12  months.  Immigration  A 111c-t important factor of  the situation in British Columbia for the past few years had  been the large immigralii 11  During the fiscal vear, ending  March 31, toi6, the Dominion  government returns showed that  there were 1,7,608 settlers came  to British Columbia, showing a  decrease of 20 ''60 over the preceding similar period: but even  [with this  drop  from 1912-1  iCoathiasd <m ran *.��  ^^^���  tasusktaaa^ PAOB TWO.

One of the most important  duties devolving upon any municipality, indeed one might almost sav, the most important  duty, is thc preservation oi  cleanliness and sanitary conditions in order that the general  health of the community mav  be safeguarded, and the danger  of the outbreak of an epidemic  of disease reduced t > a minimum. This danger is always  more or less present where people congregate together in large  numbers, and especially so in  the newer towns and cities of  the west which have not yet developed sufficiently to permit  thc adoption of complete irod-  ern systems of sewerage and  other sanitary conveniences. It  becomes all the more necessary  in such cases to use thc strictest  measures possible to ensure the  prompt removal of all accumulations of decomposable fiitli  and rubbisb. The neglect of  these precautions would lay any  council or responsible body open  to the gravest censure.  We would like to be able to  say that Kclowna, in respect tn  these matters was fully abreast  of thc times, but we arc aliaid  that such an assertion would be  far from the truth. A visit to  manv of thc back lanes and the  back yards in all parts of the  city would be sufficient to reveal the absence of any sucn  stringent regulations. Very few  houses would be found which  did not have in some neglected  corner its disgusting heap oi  empty cans and bottles aud other rubbish, and in many cases  these have been allowed to accumulate until they are positive  lv ai-palling. It is not speaking too stronplv to say th.it  some of our back lanes would  be a disgrace to an African village. We could point to some  heaps of this kind which have  been lying undisturbed for as  long as two years and perhaps  even lonrcr. It is a common  practice of some who live next  to vacant lots to get rid of their  refuse by the convenient method  of throwing it over the fence,  where it is apparently nobody's  business to see that it is removed.  Empty cans are distinctly a  modern abomination, and constitute by far the greater part  of this garbage, and certainly  the most dangerous part of it.  We call them empty only bv  courtesy, for if they were reallv  empty thev would not be nearly  so bad. As a rule the caus are  thrown out with a portion of  the contents still clinging to  the sides, and after a few hours  in the sun affords a most favorable breeding place for all  manner of disease germs and  flies, which latter, in turn carry  the contagion to the food ou  our tables. Rains, too, assist  in the distribution of thc evil  by washing the germs into tbe  soil and impregnating the water  which is very near the surface.  That Kelowna can remain the  comparatively healthy place it  is when such conditions exist is  nothino- short of remarkable,  and an eloquent tribute indeed  to the favorable climate r.nd  purity of the atmosphere.  Those who have voung children will especially realize the  danger of permitting o-arbage to  accumulate, as it is impossible  to impress them with the need  of   giving    such   places a wide]  berth. |  It is true of course that the  scavenger will call any time  he is notified, but such a piovi.  sion is so ineffectual as to be almost absurd. To be of any use  as a sanitary measure garbage  should be removed frequently  at short intervals, and it is  hardly to be expected that a  person would care to send for a  full-sized team and wagon to remove a small box-full of rubbish  and nn- moreover as thougn it  were a full load. The .-onse-  quence is that the rubbish 6 remains until a respectable  pile���no, a horrible pile, has  accumulated. And if a person  vacates a house in the ine,iu-  time, the pile mav remain indefinitely.  We have repeatedly drawn attention to this matter of garbage removal, and the citv uoun-  eil has discussed it vear aller  year, but up to the present results have been practically nil.  Thc subject is usually dismissed  by issuing instructions to the  sanitary inspector, who happens  to be also the chief of police, to  warn people to keep their back  yards clean. Assuming that  most reonle need warning two  or three times before they dc  anything, we wonder how much  time that official would have  left for his other duties, if he  carried out these instructions to  the letter.  The only possible way to handle this matter is to let a separate contract for parbage removal, and to see that every  house is visited at regular intervals. A whole street could  probably be cleared al one lo.td  and the cost would subsequently  be small. The cost would te  collected bv a special rate as  is at present done for the ordinary scavenging service, though  it would no doubt be mui;h  smaller than thc latter. Any  person who might be disposed  to object to paying such a r-tlc  should reflect on what the probable cost would be to him in  doctor's bills if he or any member of his family were to catch  any of the diseases to which neglected filth gives rise. The  whole thing is surely too obvious to need discussion.  Benvoulin Notes  A very interesting and inslnic  tive lecture was given in Bethel  church, Benvoulin, on Tuesday  evening last by Rev. J. C. Switzer, B. A., of Kelowna. Mr.  Switzer expounded the writings  and teachings of Tolstoy, the  Russian novelist and social reformer. The lecture revealed  sympathy with the subject, and  a wide range of reading, which  enabled Mr. Switzer to make  his topic live and glow. Everyone was delighted with the lecture, and hopes are entertained  that Mr. Switzer may be prevailed on to lecture again bviV.re  tbe Benvoulin people at sonic  futu��e time. A short musical  program was also rendered bv  local and town talent.  Owing to ill health, Rev. Alex  Dunn. B.A., who has gone to  the coast for a change will not  be able to give his lecture on  "India" on March 9th. A  grand concert will however take  the place of the lecture, but it  has been found necessary to  change the date. The concert  will be given on the evening of  Wednesday, March 17th. Further intimation will be made  later, but remember to keep a he-  date open.  Items from Ellison  On Tuesday the 23rd of February a surprise party visited the  home of Mr. and Mrs. J. J,  Carney when a pleasant evening  was spent in song and story.  This being the natal day of Mrs.  Carney all joined heartily in  wishing the genial hostess man--  happy returns.

SIKH'S DISC OF DEATH  The Sikhs fighting in the war  can certainly claim to possess  the most unique form of weapon  of any military unit in the campaign. This is a hand Uirowii  missile, composed of metal sim-  ��� ilar in shape to the discus with  which we have been made familiar in Roman history. Its edge  is sharpened, and thrown with a  peculiar circular motion, has extraordinary penetrating power  It cuts like a knife through u.n  er when it strikes anv object in  its Dath. At a distance of loo  vards the disc is capable of cutting its wav through a piece of  hard wood two inches thick. It  is the peculiar twist given to  the weapon when it is thrown  whieh causes the cutting edge  to bury itself remorselessly in  anything that it meets. It is  doubtful whether anv but the  Sikhs could effectively use this  unique weapon. Thov made  deadly use of thc disc of death  at the Battle of Dixmude. when  20,000 Germans arc said t.) have  been slaughtered in a brilliant  Indian charge.  HOW THE RUSSIAN SOIy  DIERS MARCH  Russian soldiers, the Pctro-  grad correspondent of the "Morning Post" says,- only exceptionally wear socks, having a  much more practical article in  the customary peasant footwear  which might be described as a  puttee for the foot only. In fact,  it is a yard of thick cotton material eighteen inches wide,  without hems. In ordinary peasant life any old garments tear  up into suitable pieces, but for  soldiers' use in this war the  people have been sending onlv  the best and thickest cotton material procurable, cut iuto suitable sizes. The soldier, folds  this about the naked foot, arranging it to protect tender  places or give special warmth  where required from time to  time.  Thc Russian high boots, even  when specially made to order,  always slip slightly at the heel  with every step, thereby easing  the gair, and when one gets used to this peculiarity th>;y arc  certainly the most comfortable  boots known. For winter work  the soldiers get them of a good  large size, and partly till them  with straw before inserting the  foot wrapped in the footwear  herein described.  The extraordinary marching  Dowers which the Russian soldiers have displaved in this war  must be to a considerable extent ascribed to their en-inentlv  ���-radical foorgcar. Every village cobbler throughout the  Russian empire can make these  boots cheap and good. Thev  might be worth a trial outside  Russia.   1   British Columbia af.plcs are  selling at 4d. and (id e.uh in  Bond   street, I,ondon.

Save your breeding stock. They are today Canada's  most valuable asset. If you sacrifice your breeding stock now, you will regret it in the near  future. Plan to increase your live stock. Europe and the United States, as well as Canada,  will pay higher prices for beef, mutton, and bacon, in the very near future. Remember  that live stock is the only true basis of economic and profitable fanning. The more grain  you grow, the more stock you can carry. The more stock you keep, the more fertilizer  for your fields.   Mixed farming is real farming, not speculating.  Study this table, which was prepared  before the war. Only one country  Increased Ita cattle more  than Its people In the past  ten yean. And, In it  (Australia) in 1914 there  waa a tremendous lota of  lire stock through an unprecedented drought���a fact  which the table does not  ���how. Doayou need any  stronger ar ment than this  table that there la bound to  be an increasing demand  for beef?   Add to thia con-  ****  SHEEP. Canadian farmers  ��������� have been losing  great opportunities in sheep  raising and sheep feeding.  Hundreds of thousands of sheep  have been slaughtered to provide winter clothing for the  soldiers of the different armies,  Australia's losses, through  drought in 1814, were very  heavy. Canada has been importing frozen mutton from New  Zealand. In view of these  conditions, wool and mutton  should prove very profitable for  Canadian sheep raisers during  the next few years.  swine in the Canadian Vest in  the past three months, the  supply in 1916 promises to be  little more than half of 1914.  Add to thia the fact that the  British soldier ia allowed U lb.  of bacon per day, and that  sausage la the principal meat  food of the German so'dier, and  you will understand the outlook  for the future.

Thia Increase did not amount to t%  and waa less than one-quarter  of the population Increase of  Canada. At the same time,  the per capita consumption of  milk by Canadians increased  30%. Is there any wonder we  had to import 7,000,000 lbs. of  butter from New Zealand?  The exports of Canadian  cheese have been steadily declining for ten years. Look at  the market prices today. Do  they not suggest tho advantage  of increased production?  Through cow-testing, selection  and  better feeding,  the  dltlon, the destruction of live stock of all  kinds, breeding and young stock included, in the war zones. The war  has merely hastened the meat  shortage of the world. When  it la over, the farmer with  live stock will continue to  profit in the world's  markets, and, in addition  to having helped feed our  soldiers at tha front, will  be in a position to reap a  further reward for having  stayed with tha live stock  Industry.  www *  average annual production per  cow in Canada did Increaae from  3,860 lbs. per cow in 1901 to  3,801 lbs. in 1911, but this is only  a beginning, last year one cow  in Canada produced 36,000 lbs.  The dairymen of Denmark  who supply Great Britain with  butter and bacon are not satisfied unless their herds average  10,000 lbs. per cow. Let Canadian dairymen work to increaae  the productiveness of tha milch  cow. Breed for milk. Test  your cows. Save your calves.  Select your milkers. Feed for  yield.

There had  been a diminution in the volume  of business dontv RneGUlauve activities had entirely ceased  Nevertheless, the record was not  a bad one and would have been  onsidered very good indeed a  few years ago. In fact, the entire value of production in igi4  would have been considered satisfactory in normal times for  anv previous year.  In external trade the volume  of exports and imports for the  last fiscal year amounted to  590,783,230 as against Si2,523 -  1)22 for 1912-1913, and Sol,42"',-  000 for 1911-1912.  As might be expected the  dealing house returns, into  which real estate and ,and transactions,, etc., entered largely,  showed a considerable drop, ".'or  Iqt* the total was $��,6i,006,000  as against over 5S 13,000,0110 in  1913 and nearly {828,000,000 in  1912.

"When the war is  over and financial conditions  are readjusted we look, also, to  sec a return to an era of striking increases in the volume of  business from vear lo year  whieh have marked thc past ten  vears. When the war is over  wc shall be in a position to fill-,  ly take advantage of thc new  situation. We have spent millions in making roads and other  public improvements.
