Meeting of  Gty Council  | Council Investigates  Trouble  in Power House Staff  The council met Friday morning  laat Aid. Sutherland acting aa  mayor in the absence of Mayor  Jorfea.  \ Aid. Sutherland atated that he  waa a member of the Board of  Trade,, and had suggested that  monthly requisitions be presented  to the council for the amount of  money actually required by the  Board to meet ita expenses each  > month. Theae requisitions could  be charged against the grant made  x.bv the council to the Board.    He  ' had made thia suggestion owing  to the limited amount of funds  available ,for municipal purposes  this year. '  Aid. Copeland reported that  residents on Eli avenue were op  posed to the changing of the name  of atreet. The council decided not  to interfere in the matter until the  y residents on Eli and Harvey aven  I uea submitted  a  proposal  to the  ; council.  Aid. Copeland mentioned that  complaints,had been made to him  | respecting the dangerous position  of the electric light pole at the  corner of Bernard avenue and the  government road.

F. R. E. DeMart. G. P  Budden, L Hayman, C. James, R.  McKay and E. Newby, waited on  the council aa a deputation in reference to the dismissal of Messrs.  H. A. Blakeborough and J. Harvey  from the power house staff.  Mr. Blakeborough said he had  a complaint to make in reference  to his dismissal. He had written  to the chairman of the Light committee in explanation of the trouble  and had received a reply stating  that the matter had been taken out  of the committee's hands. Several  reports had been circulated in the  city in reference to his dismissal,  for which reason he asked for a  committee of investigation to clear  his character and enable him to  apply to the mayor for a certificate  of proficiency covering the time  he had been in the city's service.  He said he had been discharged  for refusing to go down on hia  knees to scrub the power house  floor, which he claimed was not  i part of an engineers duty. He  asked for permission to. call other  members of the power house staff  aa witnesses.  Mr. J. Harvey was asked bv the  council for a statement but said he  could only confirm Mr. Blake borough's remarks and asked for a  committee of investigation.  Mr. F. R. E. DeHart said that he  and the other members oi the deputation were supporting Messrs.  Blakeborough and Harvey because  they were of the opinion that these  men might not be getting a square  deal. From the published report  of the council's proceedings it  would appear that a resolution  waa passed giving the chief engineer full authority over the other  men at tho power house. Within  two or three days after the passing  of this resolution the second and  third engineers were discharged.  The discharged men appealed to  the Light [and Water committee  and were informed that this com-  ' mittee had no control in the matter. There were several rumours  of a serious nature casting reflections upon the chief engineer's  character circulating in the city.  An advertisement had been placed  in the paper stating that an engineer was required whereas two  wofe needed. For these reasons  he thought a committee of investigation should be appointed.  Mr. E. Kewhy asked the city clerk if, he  scrubbed the floor but received a reply in  the negative I  Acting-mayor Sutherland informed the  delegation that a committee of investigation would  hav* been appointed at the  last mietjng of council if an application  for same had been received. In reference  to the advertisement reading "An engineer," he said he was in the office when the  clerk was drafting ths adveitisament.'; As  drafted it read wo engimers but oh tho  clerk's suggestion was altered to an engineer as several applications would be 'received and two could be selectee)..  The council decided to hold an investigation after the regular business had been  disposed of. For this purpose Mr. Harvey  was required to relievo Mr. Colquette and  was informed he would be relieved by  Mr, Blakeborough to give his evidence.  Aid. Calder read Mr. ljlakeborough'e  letter, addressed to chairman of committee  in reference to his dismissal and also the  reply to same. Aid. Calder said -he considered the matter had been removed  from the jurisdiction of the commiaee.by  the resolution of May 9th, giving oc mplete  authority at the power house to the chief  engineer.  Mr. Blakeborough denied that the chief  engineer had used abusive language to  him as had been rumored in the streets.  Upon Mr. Colquette'a arrival the investigation was proceeded with in open meeting.  Mr. Blakeborough said his prime reason  for asking for investigation was to clear  his character in order that he might apply  for a letter of reference covering the time  he had been in the city's employ. He repeated that he did not consider it part .of  an engineer's duty to go down on hands  and knees and scrub floor, nor had he  during his sixteen years' work as an engineer and mechanic been ordered to do  such work, ln view of the fact that he  had served five years as apprentice to his  trade at practically no wage and his tools  and books cost over $400, he considered  scrubbing of floors should be done by  other thsn engineers. He asked Mr. Colquette whether excepting scrubbing floor  he had ever refused to do any work in  connection with power house irrespective  of time and shifts.  Mr. Colquette replied in the negative.  Mr. Blakeborough said the day fireman  had lots of time in which to scrub the  floor of the engine room supporting his  contention by comparing the difference  between the day and the night loads. He  said it would be impossible for one fireman to keep up steam at night if the day  load kept one man busy.  Aid. Sutherland pointed out that there  was considerable difficulty in keeping fire  men at the power house for any length of  time. He had noticed that when firemen  resigned they generally made the same  complaint, viz., The work was too hard  and their doctors had ordered a rest.  Aid. Calder asked Mr. Blakeborough  whether Mr. Colquette had ever sworn at  him. He said he had not. ,   j^,  Mr. Blakeborough asked Mr. Colquette  if he had ever suggested lhat he or iV*..  Harvey were trying to wreck the plant  Mr. Colquette aaid no, ha had not.  Mr. Blakeborough asked whether Col.  qustte did not show the fireman some  iron filings which had been placed in oil  can. He would like to know his reasons  for showing the fireman these filings and  for keeping them.  Mr. Colquette replied that was his business. - Ha denied having said anything  about wrecking tho plant. He had thought  it strange that filings ahould be there and  had shown them to the fireman in order  to have a witness that they were in the  can.  Mr. Colquette said that he himself with  the lineman had scrubbed the floor during  the past year. The lineman had at present too much outside work to do this any  more and for this reason he had asked  Messrs. Blakeborough and Harvey to assist him with the scrubbing once every  mouth or six weeks, but it did not take a  man more thsn an hour and a quarter to  scrub his share���one third -of the floor.  He had not asked his men to do anything  he was not prepared to do himself. In  reply to a question he said ho had had no  previous trouble with Mr. Blakeborough  and had no complaint except that he listened too much to outsiders. ��  Mr. Harvey on being called said he had  refused to scrub the floor as he considered  the night engineer had not time in which  to do it.  Mr. Colquette said he did not see that  the night engineer had much more work  than the day man, 'as most of the work  involved in the extra load fell on the fireman. He said it was customary for engineers in a i-lant the size of Kelowna's to  scrub the floor. In large plants, of course,  he would not have to do anything but  look after hia engines, but in a small plant  it was necessary to take the dirty work  with the clean work  The engineers then withdrew.  Aid. Sutherland said he was of opinion  that the trouble had been stirred up by  people outside. He was sorry that Messrs.  Blakeborough and Harvey had been led  by these persons. He wss particularly  sorry that the city was losing the services  of Mr. Blakeborough, as he had a high  opinion of his character and ability. On  the other hand the two men admitted that  they had refused to obey the chief's orders  end he was of opinion that the council  could only confirm the chief engineer's  action.. Ho wat a frequent visitor to the  power house and always found Mr. Colquette busy at something. He mentioned  that in addition to his regular shift at  operating the machinery the chief engineer had to supervise all extensions. He  thought Mr. Colquette tried to make everything as easy and pleasant at the power  house as he could. He had just received  application for permission to purchase an  electric water ������ heater believing that it  was not fit for his men to use water from  the boilers with their meals.  Aid. Copeland echded the regret of  Aid. Sutherland at losing Mr. Blakeborough, and hoped some arrangement could  be made to retain him.  Aid. Calder said he did not think Mr.  Blakeborough would consider such a pro-  po'ition.  The following resolution was then paused : "(That the council havs every confidence in Mr. Colquette and very much  regrets the stories circulated In town. It  would urge the public to thoroughly investigate any stories before circulating  them."  ..... "    -.-  J. ��. Reekie Elected  President  Of Okanagan Growers, Ltd.,  R. Robertson to be Manager  The new Okanagan Growers,  Ltd., the central selling agency  which is to handle the fruit and  produce crop of the valley is now  an' accomplished fact,' the preliminary details of organization having  been carried out in a highly satisfactory manner.  The twenty-six representatives  or' provisional stock-holders appointed from the various centres  in the valley met at Vernon last  Thursday. The representatives  present were as "follows: Vernon,  (6),F. B. Cossitt, W. C. Ricardo,  P. Verhaegen, W. S. Foggo, Steven  Freeman, J.M. Hayward ; Kelowna'  (6), J. E. Reekie, A. W. Bowser, CJ  Buck, W. Gay, N. D. McTavish, J.  W. Woolsey ; Armstrong (6), W.'  M. Townsend, J. N, Hughes, A.  Buckley, Robt. Wood, W. F. Barn-  ett, and one by proxy ; Penticton  (2), Capt. I. M. Stevens, E. C. Houl-  den (represented by S. J. Kerney);  Summerland (2), C. J. C. White,  and one by proxy; Salmon Arm  (2), W. J. Wilcox and one by  proxy; Peachland (I), J. McLauh-  lin ; Enderby and Mara (I), C. W.  Little.  Mr. C. J. C. White of Summer-  land was elected chairman of the  meeting, Mr. Little of Mara acting  as secretary pro tern.  From amongst their number  these representatives appointed  the following directors, which  board will he the controling body  of the company for the year:  Vernon :    S. B. Cossitt.  P. Verhaegen.  Kelowna :    J. E. Reekie.  A. W. Bowser.  Armstrong:   W. M. Townsend.  W. F. Burnett.  Summerland :   C. J. White.  Peachland :    J. McLaughlin.  Penticton:    Capt. Stevens.  Enderby & Mara:   C. W. Little.  Salmon Arm :   W. J. Wilcox.  At a subsequent meeting of this  board Mr. J. E. Reekie was elected  president on the motion of C. J. C.  White of Summerland, seconded  by P. Verhaegen of Vernon.   F. B.  Cossitt of Vernon waa  elected   as  Vice-President, and Capt. Stevens  of   Penticton,   secretary   to   the  Board.  The appointment of Mr. Reekie  to the important post of first head  of the Company will be particularly gratifying to Kelowna people.  Mr. Reekie has the unbounded  confidence:of the,people locally  and has moreover the energy and  ability to give the assurance that  he is the right man in the right  place, , .  WithpiU exception the board of  directors is composed of able and  conscientious men who have  proved themselves above the influence of petty local jealousies  and who are starting out with the  determination to run the company  with the single object of lhe greatest benefit to the growers..   i  The company have been fortunate also in securing Mr. R. Robertson-to be'manager. The position  is one o(extreme difficulty and re- '  aponuibility, and none but a man  of the keenest ability and widest  experience could hope to fill it  with any degree of success. In  Mr. Robertson, it is believed, the  company have secured such a  man. The fact that the government in its effort to come to the  assistance of the Okanagan growers in their marketing difficulties  selected Rim to grapple with the  problem of organizing a central  aellingagency is eloquent testimony  to his experience and ability, and  the energy and success with which  he has carried out his commission  gives every promise that he can  place' the company on a sound and  paying basis.  For the more immediate concerns of the company the directors  appointed an executive of three,  consisting of Mr. Reekie, the president, Mr. Cossitt, vice-president,  and Mr. Townsend, of Armstrong.  At the meeting many matteia  affecting the future policy of the  company Were discussed, and the  spiut of harmony and tlie earnest  desire to give n)l concerned a  square deal was throughout in the  strongest evidence.  Although the work of establish-  Rutland News  Bert Dilworth is progressing toward recovery after his serious attack of inflamnatory rheumatism.  Rev. W. Vance has been re-appointed to Mount View Methodist  church far another year.  Mrs. W. Fleming and Mr. J.  Campbell were elected to represent the Methodist Congregation  at the district meeting.  The wedding took place on  Monday evening, at the Mount  View parsonage, of Mr; Mark  Urquhart, and Miss Ruth McKilli-  can, both of whom are well-known  figures in town, where they have  a large circle of friends. The Rev.  Wm. Vance performed the.- ceremony.  A meeting was held on Wednesday night at the. Public Hall to  discuss various topics of local interest. These serve to bring out  the individual ideas and suggestions for the general good of the  district, and should result in building up a live, healthy and intelligent community. The straightening of the Black Mountain road,  the draining of sloughs and the  starting of the Central Selling  Agency were fully discussed by  the ratepayers present.  War Canoe Club Meeting  At en enthusiastic meeting of the Kelowne Fire Brigade Wer Canoe Club held  in the Fire Hell on Monday night the following officers were elected for the eneu-  ing seeson:  President. G. S. McKenzie | Vice.-Pres.,  Archie Edwards; Maneger, F. IJucklnnd;  Captain, Mex Jenkins; Vice-Copt., Cleude  Newby; Secrefery, R.E.Dennison ; Train-  era, Messrs. Willits 8c Tilbrooke; Committee, the officers and Messrs. E.C. Wed.  dell end J. McMillen. A committee was  was also formed to interview the ladies  with the object of forming a Ladies' crew  if possible.  The date of the first practice was fixed  for the 9th ot June.  Much interest is being shown in the  success of the Wer Canoe both by old and  new members and it is to be hoped that  contrary to report the other towns on the  lake will have teams to conteet the honors  this year.  Both the Presbyterian and Baptist Sunday-schools will re-open  on Sunday, the former at TO a.m.,  and the latter at 2.30 p.m. Please  riote the difference in time.  The base ball team is playing  Vernon on Tuesday next at Vernon where the holiday of the  king's birthday is being celebrated  with a day of sport. There will  no doubt be a good many going  up from Kelowna. The Motor  Freighting Co.'s motor bus is leaving Mi. Levitt's office at 12 p.m.  $4 for the round trip.  A meeting of the shereholdcrs of the  Formere' Exchange and uf the local fruit  growers is to be held Seturday at 2 p.m.  in Raymer's Hall. Aa important business  is to be transaacted a good turnout is looked for.  A little daughter was born to Chief  Sutherland to-day (Thursday) but the little  mite had only a very short stay as juat as  we go to press we hear with regret that it  has died.  ing the company hits beep got  through in an iriciedibly short  time for such a great and important undertaking, it was feared that  the season was too far advanced  to undertake entirely the marketing of small fruits, aome of which  will, if the fine weather continues,  begin to come in within the next  few weeks. It was therefore considered abviaable to allow the local  associations to handle a portion of  uch fruit for the present year.  Another point raised was the  fact that some growers had already  made contracts for the disposal of  part of their present season's crop.  All contracts with the company,  therefore, for 1913 will be made  subject fo such prior arrangements.  One of the aims of the company  will be to bring the grading and  packing of the fruit up to the highest possible standard, an endeavor  being made to give buyers perfect  confidence in the Okanagan product, so that when he buys fruit of  any particular grade he will know  exactly what he is getting.  The legal details of incorporation are being pushed forward as  rapidly as possible "and the first  statutory meeting of shareholders  has been called for June 17th, at  2 p.m., at Vernon.,  Empire Day Sports  Local Baseball Team Beats  1 Kamloops  Empire Day is always a popular  holiday. It seems to mark the  opening of the holiday season and  of the outdoor life of the summer  months, and from this derives  associations which are probably  stronger than the patriotic purpose  for which the day was established.  Certainly the patriotism of the  citizens was less in evidence than  a buoyant determination to enjoy  themselves, a feeling probably  heightened by the gloriously ideal  weather conditions which prevailed last Saturday.  Although numbers of people  spent the day in excursions and  picnics in the country, in motor  trips and fishing expeditions and  the like, yet the influx of an unusually large crowd of visitors from  Kamloops, Veinon and lake points  swelled the crowd at the sports  grounds to quite respectable pro.  portions, the attendance being  probably one of the best on record  ror the 24th.  A splendid programme of sports  and races had been arranged, but  alas for good intentions, the carrying out of thia programme left  much���very much���to be desired.  Although it may be the officials in  charge got more blame than they  deserved, yet it seems reasonable  to suppose that had an earlier start  been made with plans for the day,  and a little more attention been  paid to securing entries for the  different events, the affair would  have been more attractive from a  spectator's point of view. The  tedii us waiting between the different items of the programme, always a cause of annoyance, was  aggravated by the abandonment of  many of them from lack of entries.  However, the crowd were fairly  good humored, and some of the  races which did come . off were  well appreciated. The prospect  of the ball game between Kamloops and Kelowna kept the crowd  together, and they were well repaid for their patience, as things  turned out.  The results ot the races were as  follows;  HORSERACES  Free For. All   Harness:   1st  Cameron's  "Local Option;" 2nd Ike Chamberlin's  "Parkie."    . -  Quarter-mile Pony i   Ist Victor's "Maud  S." 2nd Caaorso's " Rye Grass."

Failed to Fulfil Contract  The contractors for the K. V, Railway  took action on Monday against Mike Syme  on a oharge of obtaining money under  false pretences. The case was one of several which had been annoying the contractor* lately. It appeared that Syme hid  been advanced the price of a ticket from  Kamloops to Kelowna and also given free  transport from the city to Mr. Geo. Chew's  camp. He was alao provided with six  meals in addition, these amounts to be  charged agasnst hia wages.

The penalty for  his offence was six montht hard labor but  in consideration of hit wife and family thu  was reduced to two months.

Trip to the  Portland Carnival  A five hundred mile automobile  trip to the world-famed Rose Carnival at Portland, Ore., about the  second week in June, is being projected by the publicity commissioner. This will undoubtedly  secure (or Kelowna a tremendous  amount of advertising as the gaily  decorated cars, each bearing a  suitable slogan, will not only cause  quite a furore at many points along  the line of route, but the conlin  gent will be accorded one of the  premier places of honor in the  gorgeous processions in the Rose  City. From a newspaper advertiaing point of view alone the  benefit' that will be derived will  be very far reaching.  Already a number of progressive  citizen, have uignifi d Ineir intention of joining the party, and (he  publicity commissioner will be  pleased to hear of others who are  willing to take part in what will  most assuredly be an uneque advertisement for Kelowna.  Various people kept holiday in  the time honored but foolish way  by getting intoxicated on Salurday  last. Among these were two interdicts who were fined $20 and  costs on Monday for being under  the influence of intoxicating liquor  and for having it in their possession.

The way is to make sure that her new range is  controlled by a Gurney Economizer, which will  save 1 ton of coal in every 6 burned in an ordinary  range.  The Economizer is to the stove what the control lever is to the engine or automobile. Without  control neither is efficient.  With the Gurney Economizer it is possible to  quickly vary the heat of the oven. Various foods  require different temperatures. The Economizer  keeps this desired temperature absolutely uniform.  It also means that when cooking is over, you  may have a cool kitchen and still have your fire  going���while you can have the fiercest heat in a  few minutes by a slight pressure on the lever.  If you possess a Gurney-Oxford your advantages  are innumerable. The Divided Flue means heat  for every hole on the stove. The New Special  Grate guards the lowest fire. The Broiler exposes  every inch of the coals.  These features are exclusively "Gurney-Oxford."  It will furnish your kitchen handsomely���it  will do your work adequately.  D.

McKEOWN  KELOWNA  Agent for the  PENTICTON STEAM  LAUNDRY  Laundry despatched twice a  week.  Prompt attention and careful  work.  Dear Si...���Greeting! from the aun-lcitied  Vnle of the OlcanagMi. (I've been trying  to get that expression out of my system  for weeks.   This is my first chance.)  Why don't you write ? Are you too busy  dodging the festive little rain-drops, or  nave you fallen in love again, and use all  your spare time writing poetry} I see by  the Vancouver papers that the other day  you got your first glimpse of the sun in  three months. I should think that would  make the Vancouver people turn into a  bunch of sun-worshippers.  Well, Sid, 1 am still on the job at the  Opera Houae, and believe me, we're still  delivering the goods in the original packages. The programs are great, and some  of them are simply ripping. We had a  Keystone comedy on last week called "That  Ragtime Band." Honest, Sid, I laughed so  hard over this picture that the pearly tears  chased themselves down my alabaster  cheeks. Keep on the lookout for it, you'll  get it in Vancouver in a week or so.  The boss heard the other day about  some new - fangled screen, which, they  claim, will make our pictures twice as  good (if that's possible). He says to me,  "Jimmy, if that's the caae, we need one of  those things in our business," so he sits  down and orders ene right away. And  we're going to have real honett-to-good-  noss opera chairs in the house���some class  to this bunch I'm with, eh, Sid?  As I live and breathe Sid we've gone  and done it again ; Victory once more  perches on our banner. We had a big  celebration on the 24th, horse and men  races and other athletic events. The running was fine but it some of those guys  had to travel on their shapes they wouldn't  make any world tours, believe me. The  feature event of the day was a ball game,  Kamloops vs. Kelowna (in ease you never  heard of Kamloops, its a little fly speck  on the map about 100 miles north of Kelowna ; they have a small town there  which they keep alive by frequent injections of hot air and printers' ink) ; but  anyway the good people of Kamloops  have been laboring under the delusion  that they were the proud possessors of a  real ball team. On the afternoon of the  aforesaid 24th of May, at 6 o'clock or  thereabouts, this idea was painlessly extracted by the Kelowna team to the tune  of 4-2, accompanied beautifully by the  Kelowna band.  Well Sid I must chop thia short and get  to work.   Remember  me to your  latest  irl and don't forget your old pal in sunny  ' lowna.  JIMMY  G. H. E.
