Array JstfSKBrr,  Yietorie, B.C.  VOL. IX.   NO. 48.  lidatoma iUtovb  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1917.���4 PACES  $1.50 Per Annum  Auditors Protest Against  Breach of By-law  No Discounts After 15th - Report Result of Tax Sale  Essence of Lemon Parties  May Become Popular  Indians Find New Use for Old-  fashioned Flavoring  At the meeting of the city coun- j  cil Monday morning a letter wusj  read from the cily auditors, Messrs.  Crehan, Martin & Co., protesting  against the action of the council in  violating its own by-law relating to  the payment of light and water  rates. The by-law provides thai  no rebate ahull be allowed on payment mailed through tl.e post  office bearing a later postmark than  the fifteenth of the month. In one  or two instances lately lhe council  has yielded to applications from  ratepayers for the rebate on the  grounds that though their payments were placed in the post  office on the 15th their letters were  not sotted and stamped until the*  following day. The auditors maintain thnt by admitiing such claims  the council are establishing a dangerous precedent and placing  themselves in an illegal position.  The city assessor reported upon  the result of the recent tax sale.  The total upset price of the properties offered for sale for delinquent taxes waa $21,144.79. The  receipts from purchasers amounted to $3,168.63, including a surplus of $32.03, leaving properties  upon which $16,008 19 was owing  to revert to the city.  Aid. Rogerson suggested that a  return be made of all properties  held by the city and which they  were in a position to sell. He also  proposed that maps be prepared  showing the location of auch lots.  City Cleric Dunn made a verbal  report of his trip to the coaat aa  delegate to the convention of the  Union of B.C. Municipalities and  alao to the Good Roads convention.  Many important resolutions were  passed at the former, amongst  which was one requesting the government to make a complete revision of the Municipal Act; to refund  the receipts from the Amusement  Tax to municipalities, and to have  the Act repealed; to assist by way  of bonus or guarantee in the establishment of a steel plant in B.C.  to aupplv the demand occasioned  by the ship-building industry; to  make a substantial increase in soldiers' pay and separation allowance, and also in the amount of  pensions.  Mr. Dunn also outlined the declared objects of the new Good  Roads League which were to promote the systematic construction  and maintenance of better roads  throughout the province; to promote the construction of a trunk  road across Canada to be known  as the Canadian Highway; to  maintain the rights and privileges  of all who use vehicles, and to  promote uniform legislation governing all vehicular traffic.  The two conventions were arranged to take place next year at  the same time at Penticton.  A final reading was given to bylaw No. 235 for a temporary loan  of $5,000.  By-law 236 was also introduced  amending the Trades Licence Bylaw relating to hotels. Thia change  had been rendered necessary by  the passing of the Prohibition Act,  and waa for the purpose of removing the present higher licence  charge and making possible the  levying of the ordinary rate for  retail business.  Mention was made of the fact  that one of the sewerage motors  was out of commission and had  been shipped to the coaat for  repairs.  A letter was read from a resident  on Harvey Avenue who claimed  $5 for damage done to a baby  carriage over which the scavenger  had driven during one of his nocturnal visits.  The council, however, were unsympathetic. The applicant was  apparently under the impression  that the scavenger had no right to  enter the property with his wagon  but the city clerk was directed to  inform him that as there was no  lane nt the back of the lot. it was  his duty to provide proper access.  That essence of lemon provides  a passable substitute for whiskey  will probably be news U many  people. Ihe discovery of this interesting fact got Dominie Jncl', an  Indian, and a puny of his female  relatives into serious trouble last  Saturday.  For some lime past a large number of Indians have been encamped on the email leseivation near  the Mission engaged in ihe peaceful pursuit of gathering in their  winter supply of kickaninnien, according lo time-honored custom.  Apparently tiring of this occupation, Dominie lack, with his wile  and her sialer, decided lo visit Kelownu, and, incidentally, In have a  good time. As wbtakey is now  impossible��� or rather, difficult ���  lo oblai't, ihey had provided them  selves with three pi:it botles ol  lemon essence, and on the beach  beyond the park, they proceeded,  after thc manner of their kind, lo  make merry nnd be glad. In ad  clition to having a strong flavor ol  the well-known citrus fruit, tlie  liquid they had procured has an  alcohol content of about ninety i er  cent., sufficient to impart a decided  kick, and Dominie and thc ladies  were speedily under the influence.  Hearing of their little jamboree,  Prov. Constable Graham paid them  a professional visit, and in spite of  strenuous resistance conveyed the  entire picnic to the lock-up.  On being charged they admitted  their guilt, and Dominie Jack, as an  old offender, was sent to gaol for  siz months. His wife was fined  $10 and costs for being drunk and  disorderly, and the sister $25 for  "being in possession."  Lemon essence is one of those  intoxicating substitutes which it is  illegal for'an Indian to possess.  More Kelowna Men  Return from Front  On Sunday last the sound of the  stean whistles announced the arrival of two more of Kelowna's  returned soldiers in the persons of  C. Winslow and Bernard Raymer.  There was a large crowd gathered  on the wharf to welcome them  after their grim experiences, for  both men had seen service in the  very front of the fighting.  The former, C. Winslow, limped  painfully from the boat on crutches.  As long as a year ago last June he  got his momento from the Boches,  a shrapnel bullet inflicting a severe  wound in the knee. Though he  has undergone repeated operations  and spent months in hospital the  injury still remains, and after his  two weeks' leave of absence in  Kelowna, which are being spent  with his sister, Mrs. Petman, he is  to return to Vancouver for another  course of treatment.  Bernard Raymer went out early  in the war with the C.M.R. contingent, and has seen much service.  He was a good shot, and this accomplishment brought him to the  dangerous business of sniping. Of  trench life he had a long spell  until one day a shell came near  enough to bury him in heavy sand  bags, causing an injury to hia back.  He still carries a piece of the shell  in his body. He was in hospital  for some time before being returned home. It is probable he will  receive his discharge.  On Monday Geo. Weir, another  well-known Kelowna boy came in  and received a similar ovation. He  is the son of Mr. Geo. Weir, of  Woodlawn, himself now at the  front. Both he and his father went  away with the 172nd from Kelowna. He was badly cut up by a  shrapnel shell and it will be some  time before he recovers from its  effects.  Mrs. Vincent Martin has undergone an operation for appendicitis  at the hospital. Mrs. W. R. Trench  and Mrs. J. Ferguson are also inmates after slight operations and  are progressing favorably.  A crippled British Tommy demonstrates his new and easy belt crutch  by taking a few pege at trie Kaiser's effigy.   These adjustable crutches  arc very comfortable and allow perfect freedom to the arms.  Liberals Suggest Candidate  Acceptable to Both Parties  Invite Conservative Association  to Joint Convention  A meeting of the executive of  the Liberal Association for the  federal riding of Yale was held at  the Incola Hotel, Penticton, last  week. Some twenty representatives of the five provincial constituencies included in the federal  district were present.  The principal subject discussed  by the meeting was the advisability  of holding a convention tc nominate a candidate for the Dominion  election. It was decided to call  such convention and it will probably be held at Penticton on the  evening of October 31 st, 1917.  A committee was appointed to  draft a letter to be sent to the  executive of the Conservative Association tor each of the five provincial constituencies, suggesting  that they might hold a convention  at the same time and place. The  object of this is to determine if it  is possible for both parties to get  together and select a candidate,  pledged to promote any policy for  the successful prosecution of the  war, and who would be acceptable  to both parties, thus avoiding an  election in this riding.  The sole desire of the executive  in this is to encourage and promote  the sentiment of placing country  before party and they have made  this suggestion in the anticipation  that influential conservatives in  the riding will co-operate with  them.  Serious Auto Accident  on Vernon Road  A serious automobile accident  occurred last Monday evening  about seven miles this side of Vernon in which Mr. Heddle, of  Oyama was seriously injured. Mr.  Heddle was driving from Vernon  in the direction of his home when  he met another car driven by Mr,  McMillan, the new owner of the  Postill ranch. In attempting to pass  Mr. Heddell approached too near  the side of the read, which gave  way, his car rolling down a steep  bank. The unfortunate gentleman  was badly crushed and sustained  a fractured hip. He was too badly  hurt to be moved and had to lie  for two hours until the ariival of  a doctor and an ambulance from  Vernon.  Coalition Cabinet is Formed  at Federal Capital  Includes Member For District  Hon. Martin Burrell  The formation of a new coalition  cabinet at Ottawa has been the  outstanding political event of the  week. The feat has been accomplished only after long and tedious  negotiations, during at times it  often appeared as if any fusion of  the opposing parties would be impossible.  It has been decided also to follow the British precedent and form  a Win-the-War cabinet consisting  of seven ministers, four conservatives and three Liberals. The  representation has not yet been  finally settled, but the war cabinet  will likely consist of Sir Robert  Borden, Sir Thomas White, Sir  James Lougheed, Hon. Arthur  Meighen, Hon. J. A. Calder, General Mewburn and Hon. N. W.  Rowell.  The composition of the new  cabinet is as follows:  Liberals: Sir Arthur Sifton, Premier of Alberta; T. A. Crerar, representing the Western Grain Growers; J. A. Calder, Sask.; Col. S, C.  Mewburn, N. W. Rowell and I lugh  Guthrie, Ont.; F. C. Carvell, New  Brunswick, and probably Prr mier  George Murray of Nova Scotii.  Conservatives: Sir Robert Boiden,  Arthur Meighen,Sir Thomas White  Dr. John Reid, Sir Edward K mp,  Sir George Foster, Sir James Lougheed, Judge Doherty, P. E. Blo:idin,  Martin Burrell and Albert Sevi^ny,  It is expected that the old party  names will be dropped for the  time being and the new cabinet  referred to as "Unionist."  Rembler Paul Will Dispute  is Ended  The legal entanglements surrounding the will of the late Rembler Paul seem likely to be cleared  up in a very short time. It will be  remembered that the will was protested by Mr. E. M. Wright, who  claims to be a nephew of the deceased, on the ground that undue  influence was used in inducing Mr.  Paul to draw up his will in tho  way he did. Searching inquiries  have been made into the antecedents of Mr. Wright, but without  definitely establishing his relationship. He haB now been definitely  struck out of the case owing to his  failure to put up an additional  security of $300 for costs. Probate  of the will will now go through in  a few days.  Board of Trade Meets  After Long Interval  Further Discuss Proposed Reduction of Boat Service  Royal Proclamation Calls  Men fur Military SenHfc  The Royal Proclamation, calling  out men for military service of tbe  first class, as defined by the Military Service Act, was issued Saturday. It commands all men in this  class to report for military service  or claim exemption on or before  November I Oth. Forms for this  purpose may be had at any post  office, and will be fjiwarded free  of charge to the proper quarters.  Tribunals for the hearing of claims  fin exemption will commence sitting on November 6th.

An effort is tieing made bv the  local Board of Trade to have tbs  Medical Board and Exemption  1 ribunal hold a session in Kelowna  sr) as to avoid lhe awkward two-  day trip to Vernon for so many of  the young men in the district.  After an interval of several  months the Board of Trade met  Tuesday evening with a fairly  good attendance. In the absence  of the president Mr. W. Haug  presided.  A report from the president  detailed the proceedings of two  meetings of lire executive committee whi* ii had been held since  tire laat it girla  Board   in   June.  thai were iniuer        Hl��e.tmg be,I been drall wilh and  correspondence was on file in reference t^ B'tme, marc particularly  as to lhe proposed telephone connection between the two ferry  wharves.  Willi regatd t.i a proposal which  lud be.-ir m ide to procure the  Help of Indians from Washington  and 0..-gun in harvesting the  crop*, It wn��i lifted that the Indian  agent had mloiined the secielary  lii.tt it,. Iniii.nie were ctllowtd to  cross lhe line this yeark  1 he president also mentioned  that conaiderable woik had been  done in the preparation of a new  booklet, and lhat it would shortly  be submitted to the Publicity Committee.  The total memberahip of the  Board now stood at 91. There  was on hand the sum ot $270.25.  Deducting accounts payable and  adding rent due to the Board left  a balance to the good of $310.25.  The report was adopted by resolution of the Board.  Some correspondence was read  concerning the projected reduction  of boat service on the lake, a letter  from Mr. F. W. Peters, general  superintendent, confirming reports  which had been circulated some  time ago. Mr. Peters said that the  company was considering aome  curtailment of the service in different directions as soon as the fruit  shipping season was over. Their  reasons for desiring to do this were  in the first place, the utmost difficulty they had in securing labor to  handle the different branches of  railway and steamer work; then  there was the necessity for the  most rigid economy in the use of  fuel, for, said Mr. Peters, unless  the greatest care was exercised all  over western Canada to avoid the  waste of fuel, there was going to  be suffering to an alarming extent.  Running a steamer between Penticton and the Landing, which was  not a necessity to the residents  and shippers along the lake in carrying on their business, would be  a waste which could not be justified  .While the fruit crop was being  marketed, continued the letter,  they had operated two steamers in  addition to the car barge���that was  a necessity, but when the crop  was moved, and the only traffic to  be handled was the ordinary inward supplies, with thetfoccasional  shipments of such products as  could be handled in severe weather, and the extremely light passenger traffic during the winter, he  did not believe that any inconvenience would be caused the residents and shippeia along the lake  if they had a steamer only one  way each day. The improved daily  service on the Kettle Valley Railway and the daily rail service that  they would operate from Vernon  to the main line, should, he thought  under the circumstances he had  described, be considered reasonable.  They did not desire to make  any changes of this kind without  discussing it with the parties interested, and he offered to meet the  Board and talk the matter over.  There was considerable discussion on the matter, and while some  of the speakers showed a disposition to accept what seemed inevitable, and endeavor to compromise  with the C PR. for the much-desired boat connection at Penticton,  others stoutly maintained that the  business men should strongly oppose any change which would  mean a reduced service.  Mayor Sutherland believed that  the desire of the C.P.R. to economise fuel under present conditions  should receive sympathetic consideration,  Instead of standing out |  Under the new regulations Canadians of military age who are not  provided with certificates showing  that they have appeared before the  medical board are not permitted  to leave Canada.  for a daily service from the north  he advocated pressing for the  morning connection between boat  and train at Penticton. He believed this would really place us  in a better position as we could  get our mail in the morning of  every other day instead of at  night, and he understood that this  could also be made to include  mail from the east. There would  also be no loss of time in going  down to the coast  Mr. J. W. Jones. M.P.P., was opposed, however, to tbe idea ef  suggesting any compromise which  would mean the acceptance of the  reduced boat service. When tbe  matter was first brought up, he  said, it was sain the idea was to  save fuel oil. It was not a question  of oil in this case as the boat burnt  coal. Now it was claimed that it  was coal that was to be saved.  There was no shortage of coal in  B.C., and in any case the amount  of coal used on the trip down the  lake would be a mere cypher compared with that used in other  places. He said it would be a mistake to allow the tri-weekly service  to be put into effect without entering a strong protest. For several  vears we had been accustomed to  a daily service. Vernon was going  to get it still and he thought there  was sufficient business to warrant  a daily service here. The C.P.R.,  he claimed, was making sufficient  money from the people of Canada  in extra war business to offset any  small loss here. We did not require that the Sicamous should  make the trip every time���a smaller boat would suffice so long as  the regular service was kept up.  It was finally decided to write  Mr. Peters to meet the Board to  discuss the matter fully.  Another matter which caused  much debate was that of the proposed telephone connection between the ferry wharves at Kelowna and Westbank. It had been  the general impression that this  matter was all settled and that  satisfactory arrangements had been  made whereby in consideration of  the payment of $5 monthly by the  government the telephones were  to be installed as a free service.  There had been delay, however,  and further correspondence had  revealed the fact that the Telephone Co. had wished to connect  the phone with the local exchange  and to make a charge of lOcper  call for the use of the phone. This  amount they had asked Mr. Hayman, the ferryman, to be responsible for collecting, but he had  refused to undertake this work,  and so the whole thing was at a  deadlock. The secretary was instructed to write to Mr. Hayman  and also to Supt. Stevens of the  government telephones.  Mr. L. V. Rogers asked whether ������-'���"���'        ' '.

He pointed  out lhat those eligible to regiatei  had to go up to Vernon. He understood the government had arranged to pay the actual expenses  of those going up, but that did not  cjver everything. It meant considerable loss of lime. Il should  also be possible to have local sessions of the Exemption Board. It  was arranged that the secretary  should get into touch wilh Judge  Swanson and also with Dr. Boyee  on the matter.  Mr. L. E. Taylor pointed ont a  great inconvenience to the public  in lhe present arrangements (or  transporting automobiles lYom  Hope to Princeton. He said lhat  tourists from the coaat coming this  way had to load their own automobiles on to a flit car by means  of two planks���a very risky proceeding. No help was given them,  and the company undertook no  responsibility on the matter. One  local man had recently had an  accident through his car slipping  while endeavoring to load it alone,  while another had had everything  stolen from his car. This sort of  thing would interfere seriously  with tourists coming this way, a  thing which should be encouraged  as much as possible. Hs suggested  lhat the C.P.R. be asked to provide  a box car which could be sealed  up, and also to provide a loading  and unloading platform  It was arranged that the support  of other Boards of Trade in the  district should be obtained in making this request.  Mr. L. V. Rogers advocated the  formation of an Automobile Club,  or at least that a section of the  Board of Trade be devoted to that  purpose. One great advantage, he  pointed out, would be the provision of proper sign posts at the  intersections of the roads.  While on the subject of automobiles the recent agitation of the  new Good Roads Association for  a change of the "rule of the road "  was mentioned, it being pointed  out that in all Canada only B.C.  and Nova Scotia kept to the left,  creating much confusion for visit-  tors. Finally it was arranged that  lhe latler question should be discussed at the next meeting.  Mr. T. 3. Ruffle suggested that  the council be asked to have the  sidewalk near the C.P.R. wharf  raised, as it was always flooded  during rainy weather.  An application from Mr. W.  McEwan was accepted ond approved.  Edited by Pioneer. Oct. 16th, 1917  Order* bv command for week  ending October 20th, 1917.

Sir ARTHUR STANI.KY,  Chairman, Executive Committee,  British Red Cross.  It now costs $300,000.00 a week to carry on the work of the  British Red Cross, or $16,000,000.00 a year.  Every minute of the day and night it costs $30 to minister to  the sick aud wounded and dying.  Last year Canada's magnificent contribution paid for the entire  work of the British Red Cross for nearly seven weeks.  This year, in view of the greater need, it is earnestly and  confidently hoped that Canada's contributions will be as  great proportionately as the magnificent offering of  last year.

Kelowna has been specially favored with high - class entertainments, but it is a long time since  anvthing so thoroughly enjoyable  was staged as the concert ot the  Hollinshead brothers last night.

Assist the Cause I  The Women's Institute held their  meeting last Thursday, when Mrs.  Fleming read a very original psper  on " How .to make Rutland a better place to live in." Mrs. Fleming's panacea was church union,  which drew forth a lively discussion amongst the several ladies  present. Among other suggestions  was one put forth by Mrs. Gray,  which called for a pound law.  They were all victims from time to  time to the wayward wandering of  somebody's pet stock, without getting any remuneration for the loss  sustained. This practical idea  received unanimous assent and  Mrs. Grav was asked to approach  the local Farmers' Associetion on  the matter.  There was a gratifying response  to the appeal for donations of fruit  and kind to the hospital snd the  thanks of the Institute are due Mr.  Earl Hardy for transporting the  produce into town.

The ntalenient has bten made by W. ^  I lamia, food controller, that while it is not  proposed to fix the price of potatoes, the  "spread" between the price paid to the  producer arid that paid by lhe consumer  is to be fixed. As all dealers will be  licensed the Con'roller will thus be able  to control the potato market to as great  an extent ns possible.  Deputy Minister   of   Agriculture W. F.  Scclt is advocating the fixing of the price  on potatoes at $1.50 per sack retail, with  90c to $1 paid to the grower.  lhe subsistence allowance to men on  'home guard" duty is to be raised from  $1 i.'".D to $20 per ni'JUth, the same as for  men on overseas seivice, to date from the  first of this month,  I he creation of a Canadian high com-  misftionership at Washington to represent  the Dominion in the United States is now  under consideration.  lhe Hon.

Canned vegetables may now be sold  without restriction in any part of Canada,  the recent embargo hnving been lifted.  So prevalent has the cigaiette habit become amongst young ladies in England,  that a movement has been started to curb  it by legislation.  By an order-in-council issued yesterday  no coal dealer in the Dominion will be  allowed to make a profit of more than 50c  per ton. Ihis is over and above all overhead charges and operating expenses for  which allowances are to be made. Severe  penalties are provided for infringement of  the regulations.  Chancellor H. Bonar Law announced in  the British House of Commons Tuesday  that it wat tbe government's intention to  make air raids and bombard German  towns by way of reprisals as far as military needs would release the neccssaiy  machines.

Best Honey Record  in Ten Years  British Columbia bees have established the best record in ten  yens in the production of honey  according to F. Dundas Dodd, lhe  expert who reports annually upon  tht; conditions of the industry in  the Lower Mainland, the chief  producing section or the province.  The output this year was 150 tons.  Most sales in bulk have been at  20c per pound and the outlook is  for sliil higher figures, as the United  Suites estimates indicate only half  a crop in that country. This year's  product on the Lower Mainland is  light and of fine Quality, the highest  figures reported being 226 and  264 pounds of honey from one  hive.  Messrs. H. Howard and J.

Great Progress in  Modern Aircraft  The great progress made in the  development of aircraft in the last  nine years was the subject of a recent lecture in London. In 1908 the  Wiight brothers flew at a rate of 35  miles an hour, while at the end of  last year'a speed of 142 miles an  hour was attained by a Sopwith  monoplane. The farthest distance  flown by the Wrights in 1908 was  7i miles ; the other day a Frenchman came near flying from Verdun  to Russia (984 miles). The Wrights in 1908 reached an altitude of  500 feet; both a Frenchnan ond an  F.nijlishmaii had recently ascended  io over 25,000 feet. The rate of  ascent in 1909 by a Frenchman  wns 300 feet in 15 minutes; an  a ia Or in England recently ascend  ed lO.OOOfeet in 15 minutes, the  first 5,000 in five minutes, which  was equal tu the ascent of the fastest lift. Once they found difficulty  in earr\ ing a single passenger; now  the largest machima take a crew of  sixteen and atoad of a ton and a  half.  A revolutionary outbreak on  German warships at Wilholms-  haven about six weeks ago i��  reported in a Central Newa despatch from Copenhagen. 1 his  uprising if. aaid to have had all  the elements of a widespread and  organized revolt and to have been  suppressed only with the greatest  difficulty. S'veral mutinous outbreaks also are repotted to have  occurred among the soldiers at the  (rout. These were not of such a  grave chatacttr, the dispatch says  The possibility of the banning  of the manufacture of candies, confectionary and jam because of the  sugar shortage, was hinted by Food  Controller Hanna in the course of  his address to the Housewives' League at Montreal.  Mi, Hanna said that the amount  of raw sugar available for the refiners in Canada and the United States  was so small as to be subject of  alarm in both countries. During  the past ten days a crisis had developed, but drastic measures were  being taken by the departments of  food control at Ottawa and Washington to ensure a steady supply.
