Acting Mayor Sutherland, and Aldermen. Duggan, Rattan-  bury, and Taylor being present.    ���  A letter was read Irom tbe Bank ol  Montreal granting the application   ol  ths council for a loan of 115,000 to be  . used for local   improvement sidewalk  construction.  The following letter was read   from1  the Western Canners, Ltd., asking   for  an extension of ths sewerage   system  to the cannery.  Gentlemen,  The canning season is' rapidly    ap-  '   proaohing and we are at present   on-  gaged in arranging our plant to handle    a    vary    much larger pack than  we have hitherto operated.  There is one matter which threatens  to become a serious   problem    unless  faced and settled immediately-this is  the question   of sewerage.     We have  seen, prominently posted in the   oity,  a notioe of a provincial aot whereby it  becomes illegal for the cannery to run  its waste   water into    the Okanagan  Lake.    This is gong to work a    vary  great hardship upon ue, as we are not  in a position to spend* money    upon  an elaborate system (or disposing . of  the cannery waste.   Under the oiroum-  stanBes we can .only say that    unless  the city oan come to our assistance by  bringing their sewerage' system within  a reasonable   distance ol the cannery  we do .not see how, il the act referred  to  is to be   rigidly enforced, we are  going to bs able to operate at... all.  We leal vary, stron��lv trnt this industry is deserving ol the co-operation ol  the city oounoil, inasmuch as ws give  smplnysssat 19 a" large number ol people, aad this year will in all probability require Arabia ths amount oi help  employed hitherto.    We   need  hardly  - point ant   that aa industry ol    this  description is most beoefldal to    the  community, not only by reason ol tbe  amount oi employment it creates, but  also by tha amount ol trade it'brings  to ths city in many directions,    and  it seams to us, that U would bs   bad  lsiialis������ to allow ths "rrVs^it   to  go to the wall ior want ol a    .'ittle  timely assistance.  Ws would suggest that a sewer bs  run down either Water or Ellis, street,  ia whioh oass ws would willingly pay  ths soft oi normanting up with the la-  Ural, aad would also nndertaks to  pump ths. sswage into same irom ths  factory.  sIn conclusion, gentlemen, ws   would  (Ximmsjid this matter to your careful  and    immediate    consideration,    and  would also ask you to let us    knew  ths result oi your deliberations at as  early, a date as possible,  Yours laithlaUy,  WESTERN CANNERS LTD.

A latter was read irom ths C.P.R.,  Right ol Way offios in respect to a  pises oi land oa taa foreshore near  ths power houss which ths city had  some years ago agreed to. convey to  ths company. Ths matter had never  been completed.  Dr. Haley, government veterinarian,  replying to a request bom ths oouoal  that hs should proceed to test" ths local dairy cattle ior tuberculosis, asked  ' lor a list oi ths dairies the oounoil  wished testing. It waa decided now-  ever, that the counoil had in response  to the complaints made done its duty  in drawing Dr. Haley's attention to tbe  presence of tuberculosis and that it J  rested with the provincial authorities  to "discover and eradicate it.,  A petition was received signed by  thirty-live ratepayers asking the oounoil to have the sloughs and swampy  places tteated with ooal oil, with a  view to abating ths mosquito nuisance. This was referred to the Publio Works committee.  A letter was received from ths oity  solicitors asking the city to sign a  form oi Dead Poll vesting in themselves the tsn Jest acquired tor widening Pendori street. This was made  necessary by the impossibility ol getting Quit Claim Deeds for all the property concerned.    The mayor and clerk  KELOWNA BRITISH COLOMBIA THURSDAY. MAY 7. 1914.  Railroad BulWing  At Once  HUMOR 0. N. R. WILL START KE  LOWNA-KAMLOOPS BRANCH  AT EARLY DATE  Rumor is again rife that the C.N.R.  will commence construction work on  the Kelowna-Kamloops branch at an  early date. A Winnipeg despatch of  Friday's date states that Mr. M. H.  MoLeod, the general manager ol the  company was in Toronto making arrangements for the . season's work,  which would inolude the building of  this branch line.       "���_'.������.���'  Although the local' representatives ot  Grant, Smith k Co., has not been advised that contracts have been   called  I for, the Winnipeg despatch would    indicate that it will not be long before  an official announcement iB made. This  assumption iB stron <th mtd by the vory  positivo statement of Sir Riohard  MoBride to Mayor Jones some little time  | "Bolt is understood    that while    while  Mr. T. G. Holt, fourth vice-president,  will continue to aot as executive head,  that another official will be appointed  to take charge of affairs at Vancouver.   In this latter connection     it    ia  stated that the now appointment will  be that ol a general superintendent to  handle operating matters.  It is interesting to note tnat the  present plans ol the C.N.R., call lor  the construction of a line from Kamloops in a general southerly and easterly direction to Armstrong and  thence to Vernon, with a spur to the  Okanagan lake near Okanagan Landing; a branch Irom Vernon to Lumby  and an extension from Vernon south  via Kalamalka Lake to Kelowaa. las  line at present planned will bs '40  miles in length, although H is bolbv  ed in some quarters that further extensions will be made later on to connect with tho other portions oi the  company's system in the prairie provinces via Lumby, Arrow Lake, Lar-  deau and the Columbia Valley- to the  C.N.It., branch system now under construction in southern and central Alberta.  The Mackenzie k Mtn > ntoresto have  formulated extensive hydro eleotrio  power sohemes in connection with the  Okanagan branch. The company it is  said, have secured power rights all  along the route, and are arranging to  build a plant at Shuswap Falls.  According to General Manager MoLeod, construction on the unfinished  links of the C.N.It.'s main line in British Columbia is to be rushed to completion this year. A large amount ol  bridge building yet remains to be done  at various points alcnr the Ihompson  and North Thompson rivers, but Ihe  grading work on the sections north ol  Kamloops ia well in hand, and the entire route is expected to be ready lor  the rails by the middle of August.  Coantry Appreciates  Kelowna Apples  $1.50 Per Annum.  REALIZED BETTER PRICES THAN  OREGON FRUIT  That Kelowna apples are much appreciated in the old oountry, so much  so that at the Princess street salesrooms, Edinburgh, where they were  sold on their merits they realised SO  rents per box more than Oregon Iruit,  was the statement made to the Reoord  this morning by Mr. W. R. Pooley who  returned from England yesterday after  brief visit.  An increasing trade with the United  Kingdom in B. ('. apples, he said, oan'  confidently "be looked for. At Covent  Garden market, London, for instance,  it waa the unanimous opinion of the  dealers that the It. C. pack waa far  superior to anything handled.  Chatting on matters n general, Mr.  Pooley said that considerable 'ntereat  was being taken in New York and the  old country in the opening of the Panama Canal, both as regards freight  and passenger traffic, and many people  in England were looking forward to  visiting British Columbia when they  could travel direct by steamer.  "No", he aaid, "I did'nt see muoh  of the suffragettes, but I saw a Carson  demonstration in Hyde Park. Both  parties are playing a very dangerous  political game, and the general feeling  in England ia one of compromise."    .  Trade conditions in the old country,I  aaid Mr. Pooley, were fair. Shipping  firms, however, were experiencing a  decided "awing of the pendulum" after the enormous profits they had been  making during tho past few years.   O���������  Ketorolng BaO Team  Heel TO Accident  JiUTOMOBILE ROLLS DOWN STEEP  EMBANKMENT  Kelowna Wins  TRAPPING OUT OF SEASON  (Osjshhjsjsd an Fags lea)  Loss of Costumes Will Not  Prevent Performance  The somewhat disconcerting news was  received by the Dramatic Society So-  oioty yesterday that tho costume*  whioh were on their way Irom Now  York lor the production of "Patience"  had been burned in a fire whioh totally destroyed an oxpress-baggage car  at Dubuque, Iowa. Although it appears the lire occurred on April -'0th  yesterday was the lint notification, tho  Society received. As the first por-  lormanoe is Friday night, the management might be esoused lor feeling "up  against it" lor a timo. A meeting,  however was immediately called and  it was decided to have the costumes  made locally and the ladies are now  working with a will to produce them,  We have considerable talent in the  ooetumier's line in Kelowna, and although a great deal ol expense und  hard work will be entailed it is Bah  to say that the opera will not suffer  by the unfortunate accident.  A bad oase ol "trapping out ol sou-  son" came before Magistrate Weddell  at the Provincial Police Court on Tuesday, when Henry Lefevre of Rutland  was charged with having on the 2nd  ol May unlawfully had traps set for  the capture of fur-bearing animals out  of season in the district of Scotty  Creek. ' Game Warden Sullivan prosecuted and his evidence brought out  the fact that when the traps wore  found two lynx were found in thoin,  having been there for at least eight  days and had beon starved to death.  Mr. R. B. Kerr appeared for Lefevre,  whr pleaded guilty to the charge.  The magistrate gavo the defendant a  severe lecture, and said if people kept  on doing the sort ol tn'ng he was  charged with there would soon be no  animals loft. Lefevre was oalled upon  to.pay 125 and costs with tho altorna  tivs ol 30 days.   The line was paid.

The now proprietors  came Irom Vanoouver, but Mr. Hardie  was in the grocery business in Toronto  lor some 97 years.  -O���������  The return journey of the baseoall  team yesterday was marred by an  accident which happened about five  [miles south of Vernon on the new road  along Kalamalka Lake. The car  driven by Alderman Rattenbury, carrying K. F. Oxley and two of the b II  players went over the bank, turning  over and over in its downward  course. The accident occurred so  quickly that the occupants of the car  had no time to vaoate their seats with  the exception of ono, who jumped  and escaped injury. The remaining occupants were carried with the oar us  it turned completely over twice, rolling  sidewise down the bank amid stumps  and brush and lighting right side up  at the bottom.  When tho car finally righted itself at  the bottom of the bank the occupants  were scattered about in variaue pU<ws  and all received injuries of more or  less serious nature. K. F. Oxley, is  perhaps tho most injured, having been  caught under the car as it rolled down  the slope, the back ol the seat falling  heavily upon him. Mr. Rattenbury  was pinned in behind the steering  wheel as the car turned the first tiii.c,  but extricated himself sufficiently to  be thrown from the oar ,as it rolled,  He fell against a stump and was injured about the head and limbs, but  we report with pleasure that he is  about this morning, although badly  bruised. The third to receive injuries  was King Kelly who was badly bruised  about the logs and arms. He will be  unable to get baok into the game for  a tew days.  At the place where the car went over  the bank is very steep and goes down  some thirty or forty feet into a small  ravlno, back some two hundred yards  frog*, the lako.  The cause of the accident has not  yet been determined, but it seems that  in rounding a sharp curve in the deep  soft sand and gravel an antra hard  pull on the steering wheel was necessary to bring tho car baok to the centre of the road. In don; this the  steering rod was apparently bent, for  it was found Impossible to keep the  car straight and before it could be  stopped the front wheels went over the  embankment far enough to overturn  the car.  The car was badly wrecked and the  occupants ot tho unfortunate car wore  taken into the different cars following  and all arrived in Kelowna about 9  ^^a\  LOCAL COMBINATION PROVED TOO  MUCH FOR VERNON  FUNERAL 9HIP STARTS FOE  NEW YORK  Services will be held at St. Andrews' South Okanagan on Sunday  morning next at 8 o'olock,  The King attended the Newmarket  races last Thursday and watched his  own horse, Friar Marcus, win the Mai-  '-   >- ���O- ���"  The Duke ot Argyle. son-in-law ol the  late .Queen Viotoria, and former Gov-  ernor-Gsnsral of Canada, died Satur-  | day at East ('owes, aged 60.

Tho operators, three in  number, were seen by nurses, (rom tho  adjoining hospital promises, hut owing to slow telephone connection the  alarm was not given quickly enough  to ensure the capture ol the safe-  blowers. Two of the men catered the  postoffice, while the third . remained  Ion watch outside. The sale door waa  shattered by three shots ol high grade  explosive. So far the three men concerned have not been traced.

League between Veinon and Kelowna  took placo yesterday afternoon in tho  former oity and resulted in one of the  best games ever seen in the interior  of British Columbia and a win for the  ���Kelowna team by a score of 1 to 0.  Before the game an auto parade  wended its way through the principal  streets nnd ended at the park, lin'ng  up in military fashion behind the lope  along fin left field. Tho stands were  full nnd whrn Mayor O'Brien of Vernon stepped into the pitcher box to  attempt to put the first ball over the  plate. Dr. K. V. McDonald, President  of tho League donned the chest protector, mask and the big mrt to rec.iive  the pitch, which happened to be wide  of the plate, but was gathered in by  the doctor in big league style.  A mighty cheer went up from the  crowd .is Empire Castner stepped to  the plate and' announced the batteries  as Williams and Dale for Vernon, end  Molvor and Kelly for Kolowna.  At the outset it was apparent that  the spectators were in for a splendid  exhibition of the American game and  both'teams settled into the game with  an earnestndss that predicted a hard  fight.  Inning after inning passed with the  teams fighting desperately to gain every advantage. Only two men reached  second base during the entire contest  with tha exception ol the one who  crojsed tbe plate with the only tally  of the game in tho eighth inning.  Williams pitched a t'na game for the  home club and the run that crossed  the plate was driven in on a hard hit  which the third' baseman found it impossible to handle.  The battery' for tho Kelowna olub  worked in splndid style and to Molvor must be hinded tho lion's share  ol the honor ol the victory. Ho held  the Vemonites safe at all times . and  when hits mean' runs his delivery was  complete puz/Ie to the homo batsmen who found it impossible to connect for anyth'ng bearing the mark  of a base hit. Twice daring the a-litest Vernon go' n man to second vith  none down but failed to advance th"  runner oven to tho keystone sack.  Fred Hennin-. Dlayin? in right field  also deserves much credit for hia work  in tho outer garden whore he pulled  in a couple of nice catches, one being  of the sensation:,li order when he took  a hard drive with one hand over his  head while go:ng back in the grass.  The,boys n'l played oood ball and  tho only errors credited by the official  scorer fell to thj lot of the Vernonitee.  Following is the score.

And  those who attended enjoyed themselves  too, the various items of a diversified  program being carried aut in a olever  and interesting way.  The one great di-tiii 1 y which '�� experienced everywhere in keeping Scouts  together   is   the   scarcity   ol   good  Scoutmasters,  and the Kelowna boys  are therefore! extremely fortunate     in  having Mr. B. G. Meyrick, who is not  only deeply interested in the work fcut  has the advantage of a long experience  both in the old oountry and   Canada.  It is due to his untiring loyalty to tlio  movement, and that of his assistant,  Mr. K. Jopson, himself an old country  scout, that the local troop has held its  own.       Strong efforts are now being  made to enlist a wider sympathy    locally in   the movement,    and to this  ond and for the raising of some necessary funds the concert was promoted.  When tho curtain rose, a number   of  Scouts were seon seated round a camp  fire before "turning in" and after   a  while they entertained their aud once  with a series of stunts in the shape ol  blindfold pillow fight, foot wrestling,  and oanstone  (or the "Cat and Mouse  Aot").    Then followed a song   "Boys  be Prepared," by the Assistant Scoutmaster (K.  Jopson)   who had to respond to a    loudly    demanded encore.  The Assistant Scoutmaster is IL young  man    of    many:  parts,    and his original      sketch    "The Stolen Plans"  given     'by j tho       boys    waa very  cleverly    written    and as ably     acted.     The boys thoroughly entered into the spirit of the sketch, and proved  themselves   capable   of   tackling   any  ugly customer they might have    anything to da with.    The followuv; were  the dramatis peraonao:  Gen. Vardon, in command at Fort Ry-  . dal B. G. Meyrick  Lieut. Vanstone, orderly offioer   :  H. Crowley  Carl von Lahn, a foreign spy        >   ,  F.

Fruit Pests Inspector T.  Cunningham has instituted prooeed'ags  against the Great Northorn Agent nt  Myncaster and a rancher at Hock  Creek. The trees wore released to the  rancher without having be inspected  and havo been planted. They must  now bo dug up and sent to the fumigation plant at Vanoouver.    |,  "The Sun" states that vague rumors have for some months been in  circulation to the effect that Hon. R.  L. Borden, the federal premier, might  possibly go to London, as Canadian  high commissioner, in succession to the  late Lord Strathoona.  Despite apparent obstacles to a relinquishment by him ol hia leadership  of the government and party the rumor that he purposes going to London  persist, and some color is given to  thorn by the unfortunate state ol his  health which haa compelled him ot  late to visit various resorts where he  could obtain much needed rest irom  work and worry. And as il to give  confirmation to these reports a despatch from London declares with  something like positivenesa that they  aro not unfounded. "The Standard  understands, on good authority" the  despatch says, "that Premier Borden  Ib likely to be the successor to the  late Lord Strathoona in the office of  high commissioner in London. For  some time, says the paper, Mr. Borden's health has not been satisfactory. Tho strain of party politics has  told upon his none too robust, physique.  Coming from the "London Standard" such 5 forecast is very like an  announcement. Tho "Standard" is  very muoh in the confidence ot the political group in Great Britain and  Canada with whose views Mr, Borden  is in closest sympathy and a statement regarding the Canadian premier's intention in a matter affecting  him bo personally might be expected  to appear first in that journal.

(Phono 96)  'I ha seizure of Vera Cruz by the  American navy calls to mind the capture of Vera Cruz by General Winfiuld  Scott, oa March 29th, 1847. Vera Criii  was taken recently more easily than it  was 67 years ago, though Gen. Scott's  capture ol the city was made in a  manner decidedly expeditious lor those  days.  When the war between the United  States and Mexico was begun in Ihit  a blockade ol the gulf ports was ordered by the navv do artment. Commodore Connor of the blockade fleet  had under his command 13 warship,  with 2nU guns. The blockade was declared early in 1846 and continued until all the gulf rorts were occupied by  American soldiers,  The occupation was considered- largely 'a paper "blo:kade" and was . not  very effective until alter the capture  of Vera Cruz. The gull' storms bothered the little' fleet and forced it to  seek shelter baok on the island to tho  south of Vera Cruz, making it ' comparatively easy lor the blockade runners to enter the harbor of Vera fins  by the north channel. The little I.'eet  lacked the strength necessary tor utfen-  sive operation, and its occasional attempts to shell seaport towns proved  disastrous. ' ' "  Early in 1547 Gen. Scott conceived a  plan of taking Vera-Cruz and opening  tho gateway to Mexico city while Gen,  Taylor occupied tho attention of Kan-  la Ana at the Rio Grande. He established a rendezvous at the island of  llbbos, 60 miles south of Tamplco and  gathered there and took the army in  80 transports to a point near Point  Anton Lizardo, and on the afternoon  of March 9, 1847, succeeded in landing  SHOO men   in 67 surfboats at a point  investing army had" lb"ro��tl, ���'?*'";  The oity of Vera Cruzw���� defended  by 4,300 Mexioan soldiers, who ����ro  ably assisted by as many more civilians. General .lur.n Morales, the com  mandant of the Vera CrUR garrison,  hhpod to be able to hold off the attacking army until the spring heat  brought disease and dealh to the invaders or until roinforcemeo's might  be sent to relieve the meee. His artillery kept up a steady fire . qn tho  Americans while thiv worn intrenching  their position. It had, little effect and  [failed to draw a return fire from the  Americans until Vera Cruz was,thoroughly invested. On March 19 Scott"  began the approaches to the city by  a line of trenches cleverly constructed  without exposing the men to the lire  of the enemy. When the American  position was within 1,800 yards of lie  nthor defences of tbe city, Scott summoned the oity to surrender, but Morales peremptorily refused.  The bombardment of the city was  begun on Mar.h 22. American _nv>r-  lars threw shells and so'id shot into  Iho oity incessantly. Tho shells lure  great holes in the adobe buildings nnd  the solid shot penetrated the walls as  though they were paper. The blookad-  ng fleet, then under the command ol  Commodore Perry took no part in the  attack, other than to ma'ntain a 'lose  blockade of tho harbor.  For three days tbe bombardment of  the oity Ras kept up from the batteries planted by Scott. The destruction  was so terrible that the foreign consuls in tho citv urged that the city ho  surrendered. Morales called a council  of war and all of his leaders advised  surrender. The obstinate een.'ial,  however, refused, but before tho. day  was over resigned his command to  Gen. Jose Juan T.andero, who immediately opened negotiations looking tn  a surrender. An armistice was a1'  ranged, and on March 29 tho city was  formally surrendered with nearly 4,-  000 prisoners of war and a large quantity of munitions. The American loss  was only 11    killed and 53   woundod  three miles south of Vera Cruz, meet-.  ing with practically no resistance lrom1^.ile, the Mexican lo8S WM l-m  the defenders of Vera Cruz. That night  he succeeded in landing the entire army. .  The topography of the country aided  the besieging army in in eating the;  city, but Bt the same time delayed the  Work ol building entrenchments.  Blinding sand storms and the, dangers  of contracting ihe deadly "vomito"  were the principal enemies which   the  kiHed alone. ^^^^^^^  ' Genera) U. S, Grant was a young  lieutenant in Scott's army and participated in the s'ege of Vera Cruz. In  his memoirs he gives the following account of the capture of the oity:  "The transports with trro-s wera  assembled in the harbor ol Anton.  Lisardo, 16 miles south ol Vera Cms.  as    they arrived, and   there awaited  the reroaiaJew|��)t'.taa fleet Jtrtingingnl'  tillery, ammuajUbn and supplies of all  kinds from thjji north. With the fleet  there was a little s'e-.m propellid dispatch boat���tne first vessel of the kind  ever seen by any one then with the  army. At that day ocean steamers  werg rare, and what there were wore  sidewheelers:, This little vessel, going  through the fleerrso last; so noiselessly and with H* fropil'or under water  out of view, attracted'a great deal of  attention. I recollect that lieutenant  Sidney Smith, ot Ihe fourth infantry,  by whom I happen d to' be standing on  the deck of a vessel when this propol-  lor was passing,-eyiaimed: 'Why, tht  thing looks as if it were propelled by  the force of circumstances.'  "Finally on the scenth of March,  1847 the little army of 10,000 or 12,-  'HXI men given Scott tn invade n country wi'h a Foiulation of 7,000,000 or  8,0fl��,000, a mountainous country af-  'nnlinr the er atest possible natural  advantages for defence, was all r,csem-  hled and ready to commence the peril  nus task ot lnn'l n ��� f-om reiscls ly-  ng in the o;trn sea.  "The debarkation took, place inside  of the little island of Saorificios, some  three miee soith of Vera Cruz, 'jho  .vessels could not get anywhere near  the shore, so that everything had to  be landed in lighters or surfboats,  General Scott had provided these before leaving the north. The breakers  were sometimes high, so that the landing was tedious. The men got ashore  rapidly, because they couM wade-when  they came to shallow water, but the  camp and girrfron eniipage, provisions  ammunition and all stores had to Lo  protected from the salt water, and,  therefore, their landing too't iriverul  days. The Mexicans were very kind  to us. however, and threw no obstacles  in the way of our land'n;, except an  occasi;ntl thot from their nearest fort.  During the debarkation ons shot took  off th? head of Major Albertis. No  other, I believe, reached anywhere  near the same distance. On the 9th  of March the troops were landed and  the investment of'Vera Cruz from the  gulf of Mexico on the south of the  city to the gulf again on the north,  was soon and. easily affected. The landing of stores was continued until  everything was got ashore.  "Vera Cruz, at the time of which i  write and, up lo 1830, was a walled  city.  "The siege continued with brisk fir-  Consemtti��*<f Coal  Id Canada  Canada's dependence ea, the United  States for its supply . oi anthracite  coal is a point strikingly indicated in  the report just received from the Commission of Conservation, oa the "Con-  nervation of Coal ia Canada." Practically all ol ihe most populous portion of Canada lying between' Montreal and Moose Jaw, relies solely <��  the United States lor its supply of  anthracite coal. Further, there ars  ���indications that the United Status  may, in the comparatively near futuro,  prohibit the export of anthracite, aad.  na tho only anthracite deposits ut  present being worked ia Canada are  confined to the area near Banf, Alta.,  it is of great importance that suitable  substitutes be found as soon as possible.  Such a situation makes it clear that  Canada mud carefully husband her  coal resources and, so tar as possible,  oheok all wasteful methods ef min rig  and handling coal. With this end in  view, the report suggests grea'ly  needed changes in the form oi conl-  mine leases. This it is said, would go  far towards preventing the caraln-��  practices followed at present in many-  coal mines. In addition to this, it is  urged that the government sho'il 1  carry on investigations With a view lo  determining the suitability of sin-'.  and low grade coals for use in tr:> i  producers for generating power,- end  their adaptability for tbe manuio  ture, of briquettes for domestic use.  ing on our side until the, 27th ot  Marih, hy whioh time 'a consider^.io  breach had been made in the wall bui-  roundinr the city Upon this General  Morales, who was governor of both I lie  oity and pf San Juan do Ulloa, commenced a correspondence with General  Scott, looking to the surrender of the  town, forts and garrison.

Her excellent acting in the part  of Nance Olden, in "In the Bishop's  Carriage" was something that cannot  be readily forgotten and it is certain  that those who saw Miss Pickford in  that performance will make Herculean  endeavors to see her work in "Caprice." This pioture has also been  made by the Famous Players Company  and is up to their usual standard of  excellence, both as regards acting and  photography, some of the interior  scenes being particularly good. The  production is under tho personal direction ol Daniel Frohman. On the  story side "Caprioe" is as clean as a  whistle. As a four part comedy-drama  it is a rare production.

This union is the expression of *  championship of their cause by men  with whom they aro associated in organisations having for thoir objects  more or less advanced political and  social reform*.

Naturally, some of these women wore  getting impatient. Fifty years is a  long time to wait. Always something  stood in the way of a final set'lament of thoir claims to be recognized  as responsible citizens instead of nelng  classes with criminals and lunatics.  Political red herring to draw che retention of the electorate away from  this question wore numerous, and as  long as the women did. not show their  disappointment in a practical manner,  they were effective.

Its  policy has licvn conceived and oarried  out with rigid perseverance, and no effective method has yet been devised to  prevent a continuance of its activiti s.  But for the astounding variety of its  methods and the bewildering ingenuity  with which their plans are laid and  executed the members of the miliUn  wing of the suffrage movement. could  not escape the classification of lunatics.

B. Vrooman before the Boyal Colonial institute at the Whitehall rooms  in London, and reported in a recent  issue of tho "Morning'''Post". Hr. Vrooman is well known in British Columbia  as a writer and speaker on economic  subjects, and is one of the principal  authorities on the industrial aspect  of tho great new waterway from the  Atlantic to the Pacific. Sir Charles  Lucas occupied the chair, and among  those present were Earl Stanhope, Sir  Godfrey Lugden, Admiral the Hon. Sir  Edmund Fremantte, Sir Leslie Probyn,  Sir Weston J arris, the Hon. 1\ Pelletier (Agent-General for Quebec) Dr.  Sir Daniel Morris, Lieutenant-Colonel  Vaughn Cornish, Colonel itunken, Lieutenant Colonel IV. T. iteay, Colonel  Binhote, and Mr. J. it. Bouse (secretary to the institute.)  The lecturer said the City of Panama  was the oldest settlement    (1519)    on  the new    hemisphere.    In that region  tho first transcontinental railway    between the Atlantic and Pacific Ocea.is  was built.   There, too, would soon bo  realized the dream of Columbus    and  the early navigators, who sought   to  find ocean passage from the ports   ri  Europe to "far Cathay." There     kae  been no geographical event of importance equal to that of the cutting,    of  the canal since Columbus gave to man  the "God-like gift of half the world."  Also, there had never been an intellectual awakening in any one generation  in the history of the world that could  be compared with that of Asia. Ji^aa  remarkable that these two revolutionary movements were happening siiml  taneously    in our .'ime, and on     the  Pacific ocean.    Did we realize vhat   it  aU meant?   Wore we able to adjust the  ideas and institutions inherited     from  the nineteenth century to the New Asi^  and the new Pacific? This was aB  important to Great Britain as to British  Columbia, for British Columbia     was  the "front" of the British empire    cn  the Pacific ocean, around and     within  whose waters now dwelt two-thirds of  all mankind.    This meant that    soon  the    movements    on the   new Pacific  would draw tho greater part of     the  surplus resources of the Dominion    of  Canada toward it.   Then in a real and  true sense Canada would face not the  Atlantic but the Pacific ocean.     The  all-rail transcontinental haul for    the  products   of western    Canada    would  soon be a thing of the past. Even   if  the   capacity of   the    railways    were  equal to Canada's growing nee in   the  single element of cost -would be enough  to drive much of Canada's traffic from  eastward to westward  that it   would  change the    economic equilibrium     of  Canada itself.     We wore confronted at  once with the startling1 fact that grain  rates    from    Vancouver  to Liverpool  would be liesB than hit If tho rate   from  Albertan points to Vancouver. In other  words, it would cost Alberta     whe.it  more to Liverpool, via the     Atlantic  route by 21 cents per bushel in winter  and by 1.4 cents per bushel in summer.  This was an extraordinary advantage  which tbe    Vancouver-Panama     route  would  iDold over that- of tho     (ireat  Lakes -and Atlantic Ocean.  Averaging  theso advantages* and stating them in  round numbers, it might be said   that  the Vanama    canal would   henceforth  add 10 cents a bushel to the    value of  every bushel of grain grown in Alberta.      .Mad the Canal been finished two  yearn Ago, and had there been proper  and adequate dock and harbor facilities at Vancouver to handle the   crop  of 1915 there would havo been a clear  gain of $20,000,000 to  tho farmers of  Alberta alone.      This served to illustrate the grain value of the canal    to  the farmer alone.   It saVd nothing    of  the mjiner or manufacturer, who would  equally share in the unearned dividend.  It wns easy to see not for henee a free  gift from this canal for the farmers of  Alber ta and Saskatchewan of     soma-  thinji   like $250,000,000 a year in   the  freight saved. The Panama canal was  nreating a new oountry  economically,  nnd this would be Pacific Canada. No  geographer, or statesman* or economist dared ignore    the future of     thia  imperial realm, (cheers).  THURSDAY, MAY 7, 19H  STEERING BOATS AND SUB-  MARINE MINES BY  WIRELESS  The latest achievement in the world  of science is the operation by wireless control of a forty-foot boat.  Sitting in a look-out station on  shore with an electric switch under  his hand, aided by a splendid and  costly wireless plant, with masts 2CU  feet high, and by a searchlight  of 186,000,000 candle power (larger  than that of n battleship) John  Hays Hammond jr. (25), son of the  famous mining engineer of the i*aine  name, started, stopped, turned the  boat this way and I hat and made it  circle rocks and ships.  "Hammond can send his boat out  and back along an eight mile course  filled with rocks and shoal sand harbor craft, at tho speed of the swiftest cruiser," says Mr. Cleveland Mof-  fett. "He can aim at a mark three  miles away, and strike with prooi-  si in every timo. From this hoat  running by wireless on the water, to  a similar boat running under the water, is but a step. When that step  is taken we shall have the ultimate  torpedo, for which the navies of tho  world are waiting."  Steering Submarine Mines  Heretofore torpedos controlled from  the shoro have carried a slight connecting wire; but currents and tides  have made their steering uncertain.  With Hammond's system a semi-submerged torpedo may be devised which  can be steered accurately from shore  ut high speed. General Weaver,-chief  of the United States coast artillery,  witnessed the evolution of tho wonderful boat with sensations that  "changed from scepticism to awakened  interest then to surprise, and finally  'to absolute amazement."  The boat has its own engines to  furnish power; the control by wireless  waveB acts upon a system of receivers  and relays nnd motors in tho vessel,  each motor exercising some control  ovor engine or rudder. "Thus one  turns turns the rudder to the loft,  another sots the engines at half speed  another at full speed, while another  stops them. Tho current that operates theso motors comes from generators carried by the vessel itself,  and not from the wireless station on  shore, which merely sends po ver  enough tu unlock the motor gates, as  it were, by a delicate receiving apparatus, and let the current from the  generators flow i through."  The oxaot methods by which this  is accomplished in Mr. Hammond's  "Radio" are, naturally Kept secret.  SUN POWER PLANT WORKS VERY  WELL  The sun power plant, by which low  pressure steam is generated by the  heat of the sun's rays, recently erect-*  ed at Meadi, near Cairo,has given satisfactory results, and Lord Kitchener  and Sir Reginald Wingate have invited  tho makers to put up a similar plant  for irrigation work in tho Soudan.  This invitation has been accepted and  designs are being prepared for the  new plnnt, which will embrace some  novel features.  Tho present plant working at Meadi, is stated by the inventor, Mr. P.  Shuman, to have shown nn efficiency  of -r>7 per cent, which is 14 per cent.,  greater than that attained two years  ago. This ib rr against an efficiency  of 75 per cent., in the case of the  steam boiler, and Mr. Shuman claims  that the sun heated boiler will prove  as efficient as, if it does not even  surpass, the steam .boiler.  Tn the new plant for tho Soudan,  the substitution of one large heat  absorber for the five smaller units at  present employed is being considered;  Heaters at Cairo embrace an 'area of  about 13,000 square feet, interspaced  so that tho total area occupied is  about one acre. The plan* gives an  average output of 60 'brako horse-power during a ten-hour dny. The new  plant will exceed this in power, and  as the latitudo of Carlo is only 30  deg. north, tho new plant, when working nearer the tropics is expected to  show a greater efficiency.  CANADIAN WILD HORSES  In the first rush for the Yukon gold  Holds, every available form of transportation was engaged to hurry seekers after the precious yellow dust to  their destination. Once the gold lamps  were reached, many horses, mules and  dogs were abandoned, and left to shift  for themselves, seeking forago wnere  they might find it, says Popular Mechanics. The result is seen today,  where herds of wild horses visit the  farms of settlers in Alberta and British Columbia, stampeding the domestic  horses, mid leading Rome of them away  into the wilderness. The Minister of  Agriculture for the p ovneo of Alberta  has applied tb the Dominion Government for aid in stopping the depredations.

Host  Abast Raaaaaa  Precious oi   Mhnral* ContaUu  Inexhaustible Energy   <  In the history of physical soienee no  one incident has attracted suoh wide  spread interest as the discovery and  isolation ot radium by Hue, Curie in  1899. In almost every oountry in the.  world today skilled men an carrying  out experiments in university and private laboratories and specially built  institutes. And IS years ago radium  had not been gives a name.  When one realizes that thie mineral  must be mold as the hills themselves  and that the mines whioh have 'proved  the chief sourrcs of radium were being  worked centuries ago, it may seem  strange that it has eluded discovery so  long. But nature has hidden the tree-'  sure so well; scattering it in minute  quantities among the rooks tilt tha  appointed time, that it ia a marvel its  existence was ever recognized.  It is only (rom a few ot the rant  minerals that radium can be extracted.  The chief of these is pitchblende, a  heavy blaok ore, looking like graphite.  It occurs only in small fragments an  is composed of a number of differen  substances, one of which is always  lead. Hitherto it has been mined chii  ly for uranium oxide, which composes  about half its weight, and has a ptac  in commerce owing to its uses as  coloring agent. In 1896 a Franc  scientist named Becqurel discovers  by accident that uranium salts gav  off rays whioh oaused the fogging of  a photographic plate. Little attention  might have been given to this if it  had not occurred when the minds of  physicists were alert to the problems of  X-rays. Shortly afterwards, Hme. Curie, who was working on a student in  her husband's laboratory in Paris, undertook as a subject for her thesis to  try and isolate the substance which  gave off these rays. To her surprise  she discovered that the material which  was thrown aside after the extraction  of uranium itself. And it was from  this waste material that she   isolates  comparatively pure salt of radium  in 1898.  Badium is a metal belonging to the  group known as the alkaline earths.  Its atomic weight is about 226, so  that it is one of the three heaviest  known elemen's, ooming after uranium  and thorium. It forms salts whioh are  chemically like those of the other allied metals, and the bromide, chloride,  sulphate, etc, have been produced in  laboratories for some years.i Owing to  the rapidity with whioh it becomes  oxidised in tbe air it was only in 1913  that the white unstable metal was  Hucoessfully isolated in a pure condition. But the salts are sufficient for  all praotical purposes.  The extraction from pitchblende  tedious and costly, for the proportion  of radium is only one part in five millions. The on is crushed, "roasted,"  and the uranium removed by acids,  Then after a series of treatments, there  is left a solution which oo3ains radium.- Three processes of fractional  crystallisation an next performed, and  the pun bromide of chloride is obtained at last. A ton of the best seleoted  ore, treated with five tons of chemicals, yields a little over two grains of  radium. -  The remarkable properties of radium  in giving out rays and heat are found  in all ita salts, bat an attributes of  radium itself, and proportional to the  amount of mstalic radium present. In  1900 it was found that these salts,  when in solution produoe an active gas  or emanation. It was thought at ths  time that then was no alteration in  weight and it seemed impossible to  explain the origin aad loss of energy.  It has been proved, however, that decay ocoura, but so slowly that it takes  about 9,000 yean for radium to bs  reduoed to half its weight.  Ths rays are of three diffierent kinds,  known as alpha, beta and gamma.  They an invisible to the eye, bat can  bs detected in several ways. Thus tl ey  aet os a pho'o^raph'c pla'.c exactly  as light. They oauss fluoreeoent bodies  eaoh as willemrte, Kunzite, and even  diamonds to glow in the dark. They  also cause ionisation of a gas rendering it a conductor to electricity ��� a  property whioh provides the most  dsHoaie and exact way for measuring  radium from ths rate at whioh it  oausss an electroscope to be discharged. Other effects sometimes occur. A  large diamond placed in a box with  Some radium changed to a beautiful  blue oolor; but other diamonds similarly treated become brown. Frog spawn  which had been rayed produoed deformed and freak tadpoles. The seeds  of plants an easily killed by the rays  but if not UUed will show regain  growth. Exhausted ferments oan be  rendered active and many chemical  changes altered. Glens in which radium has been kept always becomes  violet or brown in color.  The alpha "ray" Is the pro'ei.ton  of small particles charged with positive eleotrlcitv snd thin* out at a  great velocity. Their number has been  estimated, and a (train of radium bromide Is said to liberate ten thousand  nrilHoa suoh particles per second. They  have a very special interest since  Bamsay and Soddy have shown that  where they an given off in a closed  space the spectrum of helium, a ow-  pletely different element shoWly develops. It is believed that this is an  instance of the transmission of one  element into another���"the dream of  the alchemists fulfilled." In keeping  with this an the facts established by  spectroscopic analysis that every radio active ore contains helium, and the  sun, where helium has long been known  to exist, also contains radium. The  beta rays are composed of a stream ol  electrons or "units of negative electricity," traveling in every dlnKion  at varying, rates up to 170,000 miles  per second���almost the velocity of light  Their power of penetration is considerable, and some of then will pass  through a quarter of an inch of laid.  The gamma rays form only one-hundredth part of tbe total radiation, and  an of the same natun as X-rays, but  their penetrating power almost baffles  belief. Thus they will pass without  preoeptibls lessening of intensity  through the human body, and wilt affect a photographio plate through six  inohes of granite. By measuring them  one can exactly estimate the quantity  of radium in a sealed glass tube without touching or opening the tube, an  obvious advantage when dealing with  a commodity whose market prioe is  over $6,000 a grain. It is these rays  which have given such remarkable results in the treatment of disease.  "Emanation is a brightly luminous  gas given off from radium salts in solution. It has been named Nitron by  Sir. W. Hamsay. It is formed at a  definite rate in the process of decay  of radium, and rapidly changes Into  u complex substance known as the "active deposit" which gives off all tbe  three types of rays. When radium is  kept dry, the gas will uot separate but  these changes take place in and around  each minute particle at the same unvarying rate. The escape of an infinitesimal amount of this gas in a  room will cause everything in the room  to become radio-active for a considerable time. By keeping radium in solution the emanation may be removed  day after day, year after year, -vith-  but preceptible loss, th is prpvidmr an  inexhaustible source of energy virion  Sir. F. Treves haa compared to "the  burning bush which was not consumed."  The complexity of the different  changes undergone by radium in its decay are explained by Sir. E. Rutherford's theory -of atomic disintegration.  The final produot is believed to be that  try war r sandy, ..  SMatfNttMfc  symbol of dullness and inactivity���lead.  Radium is diffusely distributed  throughout the whole-world in quantities minute beyond imagination. It  is relatively concentrated in the ore*  and the waters of many seas candy  show its presence, but by exact electrical methods, its' activity is deteoted  everywhere in the rocks, the' earth,  the sea and in.the air.

Welsh on  Social Regeneration  "THE CALL OF TOMORROW"  SUBJECT OF LECTURE AT  B. Y. P. S.  IS  There waa a large attendance on  Monday at the Baptist Young People's  Society who a-aemblttl to hear what  they thought would be a lantern teo-  ture by the Rev, A. Dunn on the Crusades. At the last moment, however Mr. Dunn was taken ill and could  not be present. Sympathetic reference  was made to this fact by the Rev. 1).  J. Welsh, who stepped into the breach  by reading an interesting paper, on  "The Call of Tomorrow.".  Once again in the tide of human affairs, he said, we are facing a transitional period .... of weak convictions,  paralyzed intellects, and growing laxity of principles. .Some are asking v ith  unfeigned fear "What of tomorrow?"  Others with a great confidence in  "God's Tomorrow" are lalrnly waiting  developments, knowing that all such  crises are incidental to human progress.  The student of life recognizes that  a change of far-reaching effect is going on embracing the whole order of  life, social, political, intellectual, religious. The old order changeth and  givtith place to the new." Why this  condition of apparent instability affecting so mightily all human relations? asked Mr. Welsh. Ts it  peculiar to this age? Is  it a product of a tendency in man's  nature to over-value the unessential at  times and hence to underestimate what  is of real.worth? Whatever may be  the answer to such questieni, one thing  is certain, we live in a changing order which is a fundamental condition  of all human progress, for Life demands  a constant adjustment to environment  from within. In view of this fact, to  cling to the past with an obstinate  tenacity, born of hopeless dispair, is  suicidal, while to recklessly abandon  the real achievements of men in the  past, is tn render futile all1 effort  which has for its aim efficiency in service.  There have always been men who  were dissatisfied with the conditions of  life as they found them. They have  been the prophets, the seers, the men  of viiion. They have fearlessly and  oft-times at great personal sacrifice  condemned the wrong and pointed out  the clear path of duty. As a result of  their efforts there has been an awakening of the social conscience, and a de  mand for such a re-const ruction and a  re-consecration of life that the maximum good shall be realized by the  greatest number of people.  It is in this insistent demand that  we find the call of 'tomorrow. It is a  call for men of character, of intellectual' strength, and spiritual vision; for  men who will consider the problem* of  life, willing to spare no pains in research, determined to make only fair  classifications, and just criticism .with  a view to a positive re-construction of  thought and life. For such a task  the present affords an unparalleled opportunity. There iB a general uniting  of all' agencies that ussist in forming  character. Union is in the air. Cooperation is becoming tho watchword  of commerce as well as other field;  of human activity.  Formerly, continued the lecturer, t he renlly helpful organisations in humanity were separated because the emphasis was upon method,  Today they are uniting because the  stress is rightly laid upon the goal-  character, people, whatever their own  personal attainments aro, instinctively  feel that the leaders in every walk ol  life must be men af unsullied character  who have been carefully trained jjnd  prepared for their work. More ond  more the educational institutions are  feeling their responsibility in this ma'  ter, and are seeking to create that  healthy atmosphere for the growing  youth that will insure the normal and  harmonious development of all the  powers of his being.  Yet in spile o' all tluse splendid efforts to Becure the moral betterment  of ihi race, never was youth more prodigal of substance or neglectful of opportunity. The present good seems  to have largely obscured that of the  future. The things of sense befog the  spiritual vision. Consequently only  a small percentage of young men and  women push on to the front and make  really the most of themselves. What  is wrong? Where lies the blame? It  cannot be consistently said to rest  with these young people themselves.  The cause of moral failure is farther  to seek than that. Are wo not living  in an age of fevered unrest?.of undue  excitement, of unnatural interest in.the  real estate values stocks and bonds?  How can a youth hear the call of tomorrow, if around about him from  infancy is to be heard only the noise  and din of a false competitive economic system? How can he discern the  real values of life if ho discovers as  he must that the social order in which  he moves is cross-wov<n with empty  frivolities and deceptive vanities? To  expect him, under these conditions   to  reach the ideals unaided is to expect  the impossible.  And so we have tin great u.ovement  known as social regeneration, It is  an attempt by every means at the  reformer's command to so change the  existing order of Society-ai to give to  youth the proper environment for the  normal) healthy development of character. It is an attempt to eliminate the  evil of society and replace it with the  positive values of good, that will materially assist in developing the higher functions of the boui,  It is not claimed, belt remembered,  that social regeneration will   do    the  work of forming character, but    only  wonderfully aid tho positive forces now  * operating in this direction..  So the call of to-morrow is one loud  strong call for a typo of character  which will be able to withstand the  subtle temptations of life, yea more  to pioduce a character, that by reason  of its moral strength a great contribution shall be made to the uplift of  humanity. This means better cure  of tho physical, the mental* the spiritual. It means the employment of  better system of instruction, and a  clearer understanding ol tho laws of  normal growth by parents and all  educators. It mean* that yoith shall  come into touch with those 'wh.vw  strength of personality is such aa to  compel the expression of the 1 c ,t qualities of character who can inspire high  ideals and noble aspirations.  Thus shall' the youth of today be encouraged to seize and make the most  of his wonderful opportunities for  training and education, that In due  time "he may be thorough^ furnished  unto every good work" finding expression of his strength in world service.  This is the call of tomorrow and it  comes to the youth of today. It is a  call to the wise use of time by which  all the best gifts of life are obtained.  Time is a most precious heritage.  Through its proper employment cen  full preparation for service be made.  Lost time is unredeemable. The man  . who "kills time" commits an unpardonable sin. Friendships broken may  be renewed, fortunes lost recovered,  I lands disposed of rebought, but no  i power oan bring back to one the day  or week or year that has been spent in  wasteful living. One moment lost  makes tbe sum total of our usefulness  less than it might have been.. Therefore the call of tomorrow is to rightly employ all time in view of the  tasks and responsibilities of the future.  And finally the call of tomorrow   is  Kelowna Opera House  -  i-  Friday, Saturday &  Tuesday  May 8th, 9th and 12th, 1914  The  Kelowna   Musical   and  Dramatic Society  PRESENT  1  PATIENCE  -  GILBERT & SULLIVAN'S  Popular Opera  V  Cast of over Fifty People  22-piece Orchestra  -  Plan and reserved seat sale at Crawford's  BOOK NOW  J  -  ���  Popular Prices: 50c to $1.50  ..-��. -.

To neglect one  portunity for.helping "a weak  forlorn brother" is to do an irreparable injury to one's self, for thes  opportunities of service are essential t<  self-expression, without which thero  can be no real progress towards thi  ideal. Furthermore to neglect surf  opportunities, is to sin against a toil  ing, struggling follow hoing, who perhaps in a critical moment needs the  inspiration and encouragement to  derived from our timely symoathotic  assistance. ,  Let then tho youth of today obey  the summons of tomorrow to ;i viser  employment of time lot prepirUion,  using the opportunities that como v. ith  each day for the full expression I'f life,  and soon wo shall have "strong minds,  groat hearts, and ready hands"  every service of <lod and' man.  for  DH.

Bancroft is to give a couple <>f lectures on "Hoodoos" nnd "Oott'a.'i'o-  ism" in the Presbyterian church. Dr.  Bancroft comes to Kelowna with an  cstablisned reputation as a lecturer on  psychology and in his great masterpiece on "Hoodoos" he will explain in  his own inimitablo way a great variety of phenomena, dealing many humorous, yet tolling blows to the proverbial black cat, the moon over the left  shoulder, the rabbit's foot, room number 11, the spilling of salt, number  thirteen, travel on Friday and other  superstitions ' so common among people even in theBe advanced dayB. The  lecture on Tuesday evening on "Get-  there-ism" will deal with business subjects. In the afternoon of that day  he will address boys and young men  on a vital subject. The place of meeting has not yet been decided upon, but  will be announced from the pulpits of  Ihe various churches and-in tho publio  schools.  ff. C. T. U.

This opera is one of the  brightest and most tuneful of Gilbert  and Sullivan's works, and after weeks,  of careful study the members oi our  local society are prepared to render  it in.a manner that will surprise many  of our regular theatre goers. Theshor  rus is particularly good���a big, feature  of the performance���their. worst intention, at the present time being a fined  determination to "bring down ' 'he  house" and from present indications  they are liable io do it.

LACROSSE  To initiate what bide fair to be  the banner lacrosse season in Keeowaa,  Ihe lacrosse boys gave a delightful  dance laat Friday in Morrison's hall.  The attendance was fair, but no as  huge ae the boys deserve. The people  of Kelowna were given an apportunity  of supporting the national game of  Canada, a game in fact whieh is distinctly Canadian and the response was  far from what it should have been.  The Lacrosse Club ia making every  effort to regain the Lawson, Holman  and Vernon News Cups, which, if they  are won by Armstrong thia year become their permanent property.  To this end splendid and fast material will be added to the local prayers,  the new players will arrive in Kelowna tomorrow, (Friday;, afternoon. The  club has done this with the expectation that they will receive loyal support from the citizens, and if they  do not, will be a   crying shame.  Let everyone with an atom of patriotism in their make-up iget busy and  boost for ths boys and bring home tbe  championship.

Those  that are -under good management  are paying profits while those given  indifferent oaro are disappointing to  tbe,owners.

His Excellency  the Governor-General ol Canada was  i-the Chief Scout for.-the Dominion, the  | Lieut.-Governor of the province was  the Chief Scout for B. C, and in bur  own town Mr. DuMoulin was the pre-  I sident. Great credit was duo to this  gentleman for what ho had done io  .connection with th? movement (ap-  Iplause). He had fostered it, and its  success was due altogethcr_to his uji-  tiring efforts in tnis connection. The  movement was not a military lone; it  was purely an educational movement,  and was meant to go hand in hand  with educational institutions. In the  city of Kelowna at tho present timo  ���thoy spent a good deal of money on  thoir schools. This year thoy would  spend 820,000.

A 'sketch with specifications., of a  proposed 'automobile .fire; truck,; submitted by Mr. Brunette qf the kolowna Garage and-Machine Works, Ltd.,  was. received-from the Kelowna, Fire  Brigade. The price of the truck which  was converted from a secondhand, Cadillac car. was givtn with  extras as 91,876.00. The accompanying letter stated that a committee of  the Brigade had examined two ��ars  offered by the Kolowna Oarage Co.,  and by tho Burbank Motor Co., ond.  had recommended that the former be  purchased.  Tho clerk was instructed to reply  that ,it was tho council's intention to  submit a by-law to tbe ratepayers to  raise money for the purohaso of the  Iruok.  Mr. II. A. Burbank applied on behalf  of the Burbank Motor Co., for permission lo plnce an underground gasoline tank beneath tho street in front  of their premises. Tho ro:|Uost ' WaB  granted.  Acting Mayor Sutherland reported  having been requested by the oity band  (or payment pf $100 on account of this  year's grant.- Tho^ Hospital Sooicty  was also. desirous of bbtain'nz laBt  year's grant of 1750. Ho pointed out  that tho provincial government had  undertaken to provide an. amount  equal to that raised by tho ] Society  for tho now maternity ward. They  were in urgent nevd of funds and tho  payment by the city of the grant  would plnce $1500 at their disposal. A  resolution wa9 passed that the     two  sums be paid.  It was stated that a number of those  who were still interested in the use  of irrigation water in the city had asked the counoil to take the matter in  hand once more, and appoint a man  to look after tho ditches and collect  dues. It was decided to leave the  question for consideration at a better  attended meeting of the counoil.  A "petition was handed in tor the  construction of a plank sidewalk on  tho north side of Wilson avende from  Richter street to Ethel street.  The council thon wont into committee to receive the tenders for the. new  street lighting scheme, a special meeting of the council being arranged for  Saturday afternoon.  At the special meeting of the counoil1  held Saturday afternoon the tenders  for supplies for the now lighting system were considered, and in accordance with a report from Mr. Yuill, of  Mather k Yuill, who is acting as consulting engineer to the city in the  mat tor, eontracts were awarded to the  Canidian General Electric Co., for  wire and insulators, and to the Canadian Westinghouse Co., for regulating  switches, lamps, brackets, and other  fixtures.  Engineers reports wero aUo received  upon the proposed now sidewalks, and  the necessary bylnws for thoir construction given a first reading.
