THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 1918.-4 PAGES  ss  I    I'J .���'  $1.50 Per Annum  .*  Council Holds Final  Session of Year  City Wins Tax Case Against  Canadian Northern  The city council met as usual  Monday evening, but owing to the  fact that the Mayor had been unavoidable detained on hia return  (rom the coaat the meeting was  adjourned until Wednesday afternoon. This waa the final meeting  of the council for the current municipal year, and was devoted  almost solely to the formal winding up of the year's business.  Aid. Ruck was the only absentee  and in a letter read by the city  clerk he thanked the members of  the council for their kindly expression of good will which they had  sent to him, and regretted that his  illness had prevented him from  being present at the meetings.  A letter was alao read from the  Halifax Relief Committee thanking  the city for the very generous contribution made to the fund.  Aid. Sutherland reported upon  his visit to the coast where he had  been present on behalf of the city  at the Court of Appeal, where the  hearing of the  tax case  between  tht city and the Canadian Pacific Railway  had been in progress. The dispute was  the long standing one over the claim of the  company for exemption from taxee on ita  property held in the city, amounting to  some ninety teres. The matter was finally  disposed of, Mayor Sutherland tttted, by  t gentrtl decision allowing exemption  only for the actual right of way through  tht city. At thtt forma leu thtn one tenth  of the land standing in the ntme of the  comptny, tnd upon which no ttxet have  been paid for atvtrtl years ptat, the city  will benefit by thit decision to the extent  of tome $9,000.  Tht annual report of the Police Da-  partmtnt showed thtt the ptat year had  been entirely fret from tny serious crime.  In all 35 persons htd bten convicted before the ^magistrate tnd these only for  minor offences. Property stolen had totalled $405 and of thit $260 worth htd  been recovered.  Mention wtt made of the evil of children roaming tht streets tnd park tfttr  nightfall, indicating t lack of parental control, tnd a suggestion wtt made thtt thn  "curfew by-law" might result in eliminating this practice. The continued diaregtrd  of traffic regulations waa also noted.  Although from t police point of view  there htd been a ptriod of trtnquility, it  wtt pointed out thtt this might not always be the case. Criminals usually  opertttd where money was plentiful, tnd  with the return of bettor timet more crime  might be expected.  The monthly police report which wtt  also read, gives the result of the usual  milk tests tt follows: J. Birch 4.8; Normtn  Dty 4.81 D.C. Middleton3.8| R.Ritchie  3.8.  Resolutions were passed tnd placed on  record expressing the council's appreciation of the efficient end painstaking work  of the city tltrk tnd office staff during the  year ; to tht volunteer Fire Brigade for  thtir excellent service in the protection of  tht city from lota by fire ; tnd to the  Press for the space devoted to the reports  of meetingi tnd to tht impartiality shown.  Tht next meeting of the council will be  Monday, January 21st, following tht annual election when the new council will  tike ovtr the affairt of the city for the  coming year.  Rutland News  xr  Willis Sehell left yesterday on a  trip to the coast.  Will Craig went down to the  coaat Tuesday, and will probably  stay until spring.  The stork paid a visit last Saturday to the home of W. G. Sehell,  and left twins, a boy and a girl.  On Thuraday evening a number  ol young people met at the home  of Mr. and Mra.'Hardy to spend a  farewell evening with Earl Hardy  who was leaving for Vancouver  the following morning to try to  join the navy. Needless to say the  young folks had a good time and  went home by sleigh about I a.m.  The Girla' Enterprise Club met  Tuesday at the home of Mrs. S. T.  Elliott.  Mrs. Willis Sehell entertained the  Methodist Ladies' Aid on Friday  last.  Skating has recommenced at  Rutland with the cold snap.  Mrs. Hardy has received word  from France that her nephew .Wilfred Martin, has been awarded the  Military Medal and been promoted to the rank of corporal.  Farmers' Institute  Annual Meeting  Farmers Would Stop Delivery  of Goods in City  That the Kelowna Farmers' Institute is at present in the most  flourishing and active condition  in all ita long career was the impression conveyed by the annual  meeting held last Saturday afternoon in the Board of Trade rooms.  There was a large gathering ol  farmers from all parts ofthe district,  and there was a general a air of  interest and enthusiasm which has  seldom been manifested.  The president, Mr. L. E. Taylor,  who by the way has held his office  for the past three years, was in the  chair and gave a lengthy report  touching the activities of the Institute during the past year, and the  general farm conditions of the district and prospect for the future.  The labor problem which promised to be acute last spring was  actively taken hold of by the Institute, which by exerting pressure in  various quarters was enabled to do  much to help alleviate the difficulty.  Pruning and packing schools  (the latter especially successful)  were held during the winter months  and demonstrated the fact that by  proper training women can be  made verv efficient packers. A  government seed cleaning mill was  introduced during the year and its  effect is seen in the fact that more  of these mills are being arranged  for. Cooperative seed tests were  also conducted and much useful  information gathered. Reference  was also made to the field crop  competitions which had been held  in onions, potatoes, and corn.  Increasing interest wns being mtnifested  in teed growing, tnd steps were being  ttken to induce the government to hold  tht Provincial Seed Ftir in Kelownt.  A Boys' and Girls Club htd bten formed during the yetr and had already done  much good in promoting successful competitions amongst the children.  The Short Courses in Agriculture held  by the department in March last had bean  wall attended tnd much tpprecitted.  Tht membership for 1917 stood tt 156  as compared with 161 in the previout yetr  though thit wts due largely to the fact that  over sixty mtmbtrs wtre away with the  forces.  The election of officers resulted in the  following board of directora being constituted for the coming year: L. E. Taylor  (president), M. Hereron (vice-president),  A. W. Cooke, S. T. Elliott, A. Day, P. A.  Lewis, W. D. Walktr. J. Leathley. C. E.  Seon, and Lynnn Harvey.  Mention was made of the valuable services rendered during the yetr by the  secretary, Mr. R. L. Dalglish, to whom  much of tho success of the Institute had  been due.  Following the election t genertl discussion ensued on mtny mattera of interest to  the farming community, tnd tevertl resolutions were passed.  The free delivery of goods by the loctl  stortt to their city customers proved a  fruitful source of discussion. It wtt contended thtt this system which wts costing  t Urge turn of money tvey yetr worked t  htrdship upon the formers who htd to  pay thtir share of the coat in the price of  OterHaaai oa i  Night School Enrolment Is  The enrolment of pupils for the  night schools which have been arranged under the direction of the  School Board has up to the present  proved somewhat disappointing.  With the exception of book-keeping, in which some fifteen pupils  have entered, the number present  ing themselves hss been so amall  that doubt is entertained as to  whether it will be possible to com  mence them. There were six classes arranged in all, the remaining  subjects being being: Mechanical  Drawing and Workshop Arithmetic,  English and Arithmetic, English  for Foreign-born Citizens, Cooking,  and Sign-writing and Decorating.  There are many young people i  the city who should take advantage  of this opportunity to apply their  evenings to profitable study.  Mrs. C. H. Morrison was a p  senger to Vancouver yesterday.  Will recipients of C.P.F. grants  please note that cheques will not  be available this month until January 19th.  Reports of the Municipal  Departments tor toe Year  Policy of Economy Pursued Throughout the Year Results in  Greatly Improved Financial Position  At a recent meeting of the city  council it was decided from motives of economy to dispense with  the time-honored annual ratepayers' meeting at which the Mayor  and Aldermen usually gave an account of the work accomplished  by the various municipal committees during the[year. Instead it wat  arranged that each member of the  council should present at the final  meeting of the year a statement  setting forth work of his own department during the year.  At the meeting of the council  Wednesday this plan was put into  effect, and reports were handed in  by Aid. Rattenbury for the Finance  Committee, Aid. Harvey for the  Board of Works���Ald. D. Lloyd-  Jones for the Health Committee,  Aid. J. B. Knowles for the Parks  Committee, and the Fire Protection  and Building Committee, and Aid.  Duggan for the Light and Water  Committee.  Mayor Sutherland, owing to having just returned from a visit to the  coast, in which he had been delayed for several days by transportation difficulties, stated that he had  been unable to prepare any carefully studied report, but that he  would like to draw attention to  one or two matters.  In the first place he would like  to say how pleased he had been  with the very hearty co-operation  of all the aldermen during the  past year, and for the care and attention which each had devoted  to the work of his department. It  had. been their endeavor at all  times to conserve the revenue ol  the city in order to place it on a1  better financial basis.  The loss bj death some months  ago of Aid. H. H. Millie had been  a loss to the city as well as to the  council, and they would not forget  the valuable services he had rendered.  He regretted, too, the continued  serious illness of Aid. C. G. Buck,  and hoped the time was not far  distant when he would resume his  place on the council.  They had also suffered the loss  by resignation of Aid. Rogerson,  who had had to go to England.  He was pleased to note, however,  that he was now engaged in larger  work for the empire overseas.  He also wished to record his  appreciation of the efficient services of the volunteer Fre Biigade.  The city was proud that there  was such a body of public spirited  men who were willing to make  such sacrifices for the protection  of the city. It was likely that next  year it would be necessary .to make  some additions to the fire-fighting  apparatus  In the efforts of the council to  improve the city's finances one of  the things they had received n ost  benefit from was the pasting of the  amendment to the Municipal Clauses Act, giving the city the power  to allow a substantial rebate for  prompt payment on the whole of  the taxes instead of only on a  small fraction of them. The amendment had resulted this gear in the  city receiving a very much greater  percentage of its year'a taxes. In  the securing of this amendment  they had to acknowledge the very  great assistance given by our local  member, Mr. J. W. Jones.  He referred also to the splendid  way in which the city staff and all  employees had endeavored to cooperate with the council in every  possible way.  FINANCES IN BETTER SHAPE  Aid. D. H. Rattenbury, chairman  of the Finance Committee, in presenting the report for the year, said  he was gratified to draw attention  to the stronger financial position  the city occupied in comparison  with 1916, as disclosed by the  financial statement.  At thia time laat year the citv  owed the Bank of Montreal $ 13,-  400, which had been paid in full  and in- addition $2,495.65 had  been placed in the sinking fund,  which added to the amount in the  bank at the end of 1916 made a  total of $7,037.90. The city had  $20,000 in mortgages, which made  a total sinking fund investment of  $27,037.90. If lhe arrears of taxes  weie paid the city would have a  sinking fund amounting to $80,-  364.41, and a surplus of $ 14,162.33.  The current liabilities at the end  of 1916 amounted to $25,633.32,  and at the end of 191 7 $12,319.10,  the same being a reduction during  the year of $13,494.22.  The liquid assets amounted to  $79,912.65, which consisted of  arrears of taxeB, rates, iee, from  which had to be deducted current  liabilities $12,139.10, plus the sum  owing to the sinking fund, $53,326.-  51, Arhich would leave a net surplus  of liquid assets over liabilities  amounting to $14,447.04. In o'her  words, if the citizens would pay  their indebtedness to the city it  could pay everything it owed and  have a surplus in hand of just over  $14,447.  The Public Utilities Department  had made an increase as compared with last year, when the amount  earned was $27,711.71, and during 1917 $31,416.07, the same  being a gain over the previous  year of $3,704.16. In 1916 the ex-  pensas were $34,789.96, and for  1917 $34,533.66, showing a saving  of $253.30. This made a net saving over last year of $3,957.66.  Assessment values were reduced  10 per cent, as compared with the  previous year and the assessment  rate was also reduced 2 per cent,  to those taking advantage of the  rebate.  Unpaid taxes  for    19 16 amount-  - ed to $33,480.26 and  for   1917  ��� $21,873.23, making a reduction in  **unpaid' taxes of $11.607.03, probably accounted for by the fact  that I2J per cent, had been allowed for prompt payment of taxes.  The surplus of assets over liabilities at the end of 1916 was $64,  723.49, and at lhe end of 1917,  $66,482.99. a gain of $1,759.50.  The committee urged that each  department exercise the same care  and watchfulness over expenditures as they had done during the  past year,  LIGHT AND WA TER PLANT NOW  SELF-SUSTAINING  Aid. W. C. Duggan reported on  behalf of the Light and Water  Committee, the revenue derived  from the plants for the past year  was $31,416.07, showing an increase over the previous year of  $3,704.36. The expenditure was  $34,533.65, being a decrease ol  $253.30 as compared with that of  1916.  The plants had been operated  at a loss since 1914. This had  been chiefly owing to a decrease  in the population of the city and  consequently in the number of  light and water connections, and  also to the increasing cost of fuel  for operation. This loss had been  reduced from $7,075.25, in 1916,  to $3,117.59. in 1917. In this  connection he was pleased to state  that, owing to a considerable increase in the number of water and  light connections, the plants during the last six months had been  self-sustaining and there was every  indication of this satisfactory condition being maintained during  the next year. Light connections  had increased during the year  from 456 to 497 ; power from 36  to 39; and water from 45 I to 491.  During the past year there had  been no change in the personnel  of the department and he was  pleased to state that each and  every member of the staff had  given efficient and satisfactory  aervice.  HEALTH DEPARTMENT  Aid. W. Lloyd-Jones submitted  a report on behalf of the Health  Committee of .which he hed become chairman. He had, he said,  only taken office recently, doing  so because he felt it to be his duty  and the duty of every citizen interested in the city, to come forward  at aome time and do his part on  the council. He had looked up  the records of the committee and  had prepared the following brief  report ���  " During the year 171 patients  were received into the local hospital for treatment against 150 for  1916. and the city has been free  from epidemics of all kinds.  In reference to the Sewerage  Department, the expenses for  operating amounted to $3656.16,  a decrease or saving over 1916 of  $249.32. Thia saving waa made  up in the purchases tor the supplies for this department being  kept down by the careful attention  given by the foreman, Mr. Sabine,  and alao by the citizens using the  sewerage system, being careful and  not allowing any refuse to get in  that would block the pipes and  cause trouble at the pumping station, and it ia only hoped that the  citizens will continue to do their  part and in this way help the committee to keep down expenses.  In connection with this department there is also a very important work which should be undertaken, that is, connecting the schools  up with the sewerage system. This  work has been looked into at different times by the past councillors,  and they have had estimates made  which amounted to about $10,000  In putting in this system they  will have the same difficulty to  contend with as they had on Water  Street, I understand, ��� quicksand  and water, so if started would run  into a larger amount than the estimates given, the same aa the main  sewerage which was estimated at  $35,000 and took $1 10,000 to do  the work ; so 1 teel that this work  should mot be undertaken until  the financial affairs of the city are  in a better condition.  At 'present the city cannot sell  any Bonds for Improvement without consent from the Government,  and I do not believe the Govern-  ment would grant the City a permit  to sell any more bonds until the  financial affairs are in a better condition.  1 feel that the council should continue another year or two the same  as it has the last two years, and not  undertake any new work, and if I  am on the council the coming year  it will be my policy to follow out  this line and have economy in any  branch lhat 1 have anything to do  with."  BOARD OF WORKS EXPENDITURE  KEPT DOWN  The chairman of the Board of  Works, Aid. Harvey, gave a brief  statement of the revenue and expenditure for the year of his department. The expenditure had  exceeded that of 1916 by $2172.-  32. This was accounted for by  three items, viz., the gravelling of  Pendozi street from end to end at  a cost of $1489.56; the rebuilding  of the Pendozi street bridge, at a  cost of $418.70; and the making  of a charge of $272.25 to the  Board of Works for street sprinkling, a charge which had not been  made in previous vears.  The expenditures had been kept  jdown to the lowest possible figure  in accordance with the council'a  policy of economy, and Aid. Harvey spoke of the pleasure he had  taken in the work of the department during the year and expressed the hope that the money had  been spent aa wisely and judiciously as possible,  PARKS COMMITTEE  Aid. J. B. Knowles, chairman of  the Parks Committee, reported on  the work of that body during the  year. Up to a short time ago the  committee had been headed by  Aid. Rogerson, with Messis. Crowley, Palmer and L. E. Taylot aa  members. Upon the resignation  of Aid. Rogerson Aid. Knowles  had taken charge.  The chief work of the committee had been lo keep the public  park up to the usual high standard  and care for the cemetery.  The year's expenditure had been  $1295.99. This had included a  charge of $561 which had been  made for water. This was the first  year the charge had been made.  Actual expenditure upon the park  had been $451.64 for labor, and  $143.39 for supplies. Park light  had been charged at $67.12.  Expenditure on cemetery maintenance had been $72.24. Apart  from the item of water, the expenditures of the committee had been  $235.16 less than last year, and  well below estimates. This, he  believed, was a very good showing  considering the well-kept condition of the park."  The total reverSue. $205, was  made up by sales of cemetery lots,  $120, and grave digging $85.  Very little work had been done  Serg. C. Hereron Wins  Military Medal  One of the finest boya in the  whole of the gallant 172nd wea  Serg. C. Hereron, and it will be no  surprise to his many friends in  Kelowna to learn that he ia rapidly  achieving distinction in France.  In addition to being alated for  promotion he had carried off the  coveted Military Medal for distinguished conduct. No particulars  have yet come to hand, but the  following extract from a letter to  his father, Mr. M. Hereron, from  Lieut. H. J. Hewetaon, will give  aome idea of how he is conducting  himself over there :���  " Just a line to congratulate you  on the splendid work your boy  has done to win the Military Medal. He is one of the finest sergeants  in the regiment, always knows hia  work and how to do it, and ia very  cool and plucky under fire. He ia  indeed a aon to be very proud of.  I remember one night in coming  down from the line, an oficer waa  badly gassed and although your  boy had had a most strenuoua day  yet he struck off on hia own accord to find the doctor-and it waa  pitch dark and heavy shelling was  going on all around him.  I wish I could give you some  news aa to where we are and what  we are doing, but that aa you know  it quite impossible."

Aid. Knowles suggested that more shade treea be planted in the cemetery aa water waa  now available for irrigating them.  He alao recommended that aome  small addition be made to the  walks in the park.  BUILDING AND FIRE PROTECTION  In the absence of Aid. Buck,  chairman of the Building and Fire  Protection Committee, Aid. Knowles also gave a report of work in  that branch. He paid tribute to  the splendid work done by Aid.  Buck prior to his illness and hoped  he would soon be able to again  take hia aeat aa alderman.  The Fire Brigade waa made up  at present of 20 volunteers with  F. M. Buckland as chief, the fire  hall being now well eqipped for  fire fighting. The Brigade did not  hesitate to respond to calls at anv  hour of the day or night, end often  at great inconvenience and riak of  their lives. Too much praise could  not be given them for their self-  sacrificing work.  The department had responded  to thirteen calls during the year,  the estimated fire damage being  only $405. This w*s exceedingly  small and no doubt due to the  efficiency of the Brigade.  The department felt that the addition of n chemical motor truck  would bring great assistance in  eliminating much loss by water,  and in ckecking amall fires quickly  before they got headway. He recommended the purchase of such  a truck to the incoming council.  The estimatea for the year had  been $2,530, and the actual expenditures $2411.99. Thia waa slightly higher than last year due to the  purchase of clothing for the firemen.  The Building Inspector Mr. J. A.  Bigger, reported having issued fit-  teen building permits, amounting  to $39,335.

The annual meeting of the Benvoulin Local U.F.B.C. was held in  the Mission Creek School on Wednesday January 3rd. and there was  a good turn out o( members. The  officers elected for 1918 were:  President, C. E. Weeks; Vice-President, E. A. Day ; Directors, D. Mc  Eachern, R. S. Hall, and A. W.  Cooke ; Auditor, R.C. Neish ; Sec-  Treas., A. W. Cooke. Routine  business followed and discussion  arose on general and local subjects  of interest to farmers.  During one of the discussions  it was asked by a member what  the Central U.F.B.C. had accomplished and it was explained that  amongst other things the Central  had sent a delegation to interview  the Taxation Board at Victoria on  the subject of the assessment of  agricultural land for taxation and  it was confidently believed that  some relief would be obtained.  Speaking of work accomplished by  Locals, some amusement was caused by the announcement that the  Okanagan Mission Local had succeeded in purchasing a cemetery  site. The hope was expressed that  some of the other Kelowna District  Locals would be alive enough not  to need one.  A good start for the year was  made by all the old members present joining up and it was arranged  (hat the fortnightly meetings would  be held on the first and third Tuesdays in future.  Orders for  Local  Scouts  ���BC PREPARED*       Kelowna   Tro��P  .���  __.. Troop Firat;   Self Laat  Edited by Pioneer.   Jan. 8, WI8  ORDERS by command (or week  ending January 19, 1918.  DUTIES: Orderly patrol for  week Beavers ; next for duty, lhe  Wolves.  PARADES: The combined  troop will parade at the clubroo-.  on Tuesday and Saturday, the 15th  and 19th of January, at 7.15 and  2.15 respectively. Patrol leaders  will make their own arrangements  for basket-ball practises. We wish  to thank Mr. Roy Sweeny, of Okanagan Mission, very much for  presenting us with the nails and  hinges for our library bookcase,  which is being made by members  of the troop under the supervision  of Mr. Mitchell. The case will  soon be completed and then hurrah for the library I  We are still unable to find a  suitable play for our concert. We  want a short comic one of about  15 or 20 minutes duration, and we  should appreciate any assistance  our friends might be able to give  us in locating one. They are hard  to find (we mean the plays, not  our friends).  a  s        a  The scoutmaster reports that in  company wilh Commissioner Heneage he had the privilege last  night of calling upon the Seymour  and I Ith Vancouver troops at  their regular weekly troop parades,  and also of attending a bun feed  given by the scou's of St. Paul's  Troop, Vancouvei, in honor of  their scoutmaster, Lieut. Chowne,  who is home from the front on a  brief leave, after having been  wounded and receiving the Military Cross.  Seymour Troop with Victoria  Third, holds we believe the record  for the number of enlistments from  its members, including Scoutmaster  Thomas and all its senior officers.  Its three Assistant Scoutmasters,  who were all promoted from scouts  to that position, have made the  supreme sacrifice in this war. At  present the troop is loyally carrying on under Patrol Leader Dave  Taylor, whose elder brother was  one of the Assistant Scoutmasters.  That ia the stuff of which troopa  and men are made, and from the  bottom of our hearts we wish them  every success. They have a record  and reputation to live up to, and  we feel sure they will do it.  We feel related to the I Ith Vancouver troop, because our " Tommie" Snashall is now one of its  members. There are also several  other scouts from oet of Vancouver  in it and they are out to make a  name for themselvea under Assistant Scoutmaster Leyland who was  also promoted to that position from  scout. They have had quite a time  in finding a home, that is quarters,  but are now comfortably located in  the 1st Congregational Church  building; they are shortly going to  give their concert and this is a troop  of which we shall hear more. Their  Scoutmaster, Mr. Parkinson, is on  active service overseas.  At the bun-feed given by St.  Paul's, Scoutmaster Chowne gave  a most interesting chat of his experiences at the front, and received  a great reception from his scouts.  In his absence the troop is carrying on under Acting Scoutmaster  Milnes and Patrol Leader Cyril  Hodge. They with the assistance  of his loval scouts are not going to  let Mr. Chowne come back to any  disbanded troop, and that is the  spirit which means something.  It is certainly a privilege to see  something of other troops at work,  and in this case we have to thank  Commissioner Heneage for making  it possible.  Next week we hope to have  something to say on wearing the  badge.

Several local fruit men are leaving this week to attend the annual  meeting of the B. C. Fruitgrowers'  Association which takea place next  Wedneaday, Thursday, and Friday  at Victoria. Messrs. L. E. Taylor  and J. E. Reekie are the directors  for this district. Mr. Taylor is to  lead a discussion on "The Economics of Orchard Management."  Mr. Ben Hoy will alao ' appear on  the programme with a paper on  "Varieties of Fruit for the Districts."  The Christmas entertainment for  the children of the United Sunday  Schools took place last Thursday  in the Methodist church. In the  afternoon the younger children  were taken care of, and it was a  merry throng which filled the room  and took part in the games. The  evening was reserved for the older  scholars and their friends. A magic  antern for which a number of in-  teresting slides had been procured  formed a large part of the entertainment, and the evening's amusement was rounded out by a good  feed.  A very select programme of  music was rendered in the theatre  Monday evening by Miss Isolde  Menges, who paid a visit to Kelowna on her first tour in Canada.  The audience were very appreciative of the talented young lady's  efforts loud applause following her  rendering of such' favorites as  Schubert's "Ave Maria" and "Hu-  moresque." A striking feature  about her personality and playing  was the freedom from anv affectation. Miss Eileen Beattie* at the  piano proved a very able accompanist.' iThere is to' be a return  visit by these talented young ladies  the date of which will be announced.  The first week's experience with  the new boat and train tri-weekly  schedule has not been a happy one,  and there has been a great deal of  grumbling regarding the matter.  However, it seems it has to be, and  we shnll simply have to get used to  il. It was particularly unfortunate,  though, that on Monday, the very  first day of the new arrangement,  owing to the lateness of the train  from the east, the boat should have  to start north without waiting for it.  In consequence there was no mail  at all that day. Several passengers  arriving on the delayed train in  Penticton, amongst whom was  Mayor Sutherland, were faced with  the prospect of remaining in Penticton until Wednesday, unless they  could make other arrangements.  They succeeded in securing the  services of a launch and thus ar-  rived in Kelowna about eight p.m.  -    THE   -  Correspondence  Editor Kelowna Record,  Dear Sir���I shall be glad as soon  as possible to hear from any farmer who will aid me in forming  in Kelowna district a United  Farmers of B.

Farmers'* Institute  Annual Meeting  Continued  (roa Dan eac.  the goods and yet received no benefit  from it.  Finally after many varying vie wa had  been expressed, a resolution wat drawn  ap to be forwarded to the Merchanto'  committee of the Board of Trade "That  the farmer* strongly recommend that the  preeent delivery ayitem be discontinued."  Thit wae patted with only one dissentient  vote.  The over-present menace of labor shortage wat alao diieutted. The views ofthe  district have already been freely presented  in previous meetings, and it was decided  to lend every support to the movement  seeking to induce the government to bring  in indentured Chinese labor. A telegram  to this affect was prepared for forwarding  to the authorities at Ottawa.  The erection of a community shed for  the tying up of farmers' horses, at suggested recently in Mr. Stern's lecture, waa advocated by some, and a resolution was  actually proposed asking the city to build  such a shed and take all tie-posts off the  streets. So many objection! to this were  raited, however, that the matter was  eventually dropped.  The adoption of Pound Lawa by the  districts of East Kelowna, Rutland, and  Glenmore haa been the caute of much  hard feeling between the cattle owners of  the district and ownert of orcharde who  complain of damage to fences and trees  from straying atock. As representatives  of both sides were present at tha meeting,  tha discussion threatened to was unduly  heated at riit.ee.   Seme ptseeenkaf ad  vanced tha suggestion that a committee  representing both factions be appointed to  eee if tome amicable arrangements could  not be arrived at. Messrs. Price, Monford  Day, Elliott, Anderson and Hereron were  named, with power to add to their number, and although somewhat dubioutaato  the result, they will endeavor to arrive at  aome peaceable terms.  The appointment of Mr. Robertson, former manager of the Okanagan United  Growers, to a position on the Food Control board has evidently aroused considerable resentment in the district, and the '  following resolution wat passed to be forwarded to Food Controller Hanna and  also to the head of the provincial committee, Dr. Wetbrook: "That no pereon be  ��1ected to any Food Control committee  who hae anything to do with the aale or  purchase or food produce either directly  or indirectly, and that any pereon coming  under such definition present on a food  control committee be removed and that  food producers shall be represented on  such committees'  The  government is to be ask to aid the  farmer to procure good teed for the com.,*  ing season.  On tha suggestion of Mr. Casoreo strong  representation t are to be made to the government to undertake further work on  Mission Creek in order that a repetition  of the floods of latt year may not be repeated.  A number of resolutions submitted by  Mr. f. L. Pridham, received the sanction  of the meeting, the hour being too late  to admit of much discussion. Owing to  lack of space these will appear in our  next issue.  The Vancouver  elections take  place to-day.
