Ahlermun Calder reported that ho  had been informed by Mr. Teal, the  Waterworks foreman, that the firo protection valve in the Casorso building  had been opened, consequently there  was a largo consumption of water  which wus not boing registered by the  meter. The consumption for October  had boon u 1,0.-0 gullons, while in November the meter had registered only  1,000 gallons.

Alderman Calder advisod os the privilege,had been abused that the council- take some actioti in lho matter.  und seek an explanation.  The following resolution was jpassed:  "That owing to the privilege given to  Messrs.

About nine o'clock in  the evening Mr. Boyd was sitting writing in the house of Mr. F. Armstrong  which is near his own, and happening  to look out of the window he law  the place in flames. Tho firo had how-  over already been noticed by a neighbor who turned in an uturm to summon the fire brigade. When they arrived it wus found thut the'hose they  had brought with them was not sufficient to reach from thc neatest hydrant to the burning cottage, mid a  hurried trip had lo bo made buck to  town for moro. All this consumed valuable time, und the situation was  hopoless bofore the water was turned  on. Tho brigade however, hud to givo  their attention to keep the firo from  spreading, as Q strong wind was blowing ut the time.  Mr. Boyd's loss will probably heiu  tho neighborhood of a thousand dollars, and unfortunately none oft this  was covered by insurance.  I A loss which Mr. Boyd regrets moiri  of all is that of a large quantity of  manuscript music, mostly of his own  composition, and which can never be  replaced, Some valuables, presents  nud prizes und jewelry were included Iff  the.loss, and about a hundred dollars  in cash, the fire having got such u  hold almost immediately lhat it was  impossible  to  save  anything.  The cause of the firo, it is supposed  was the bursting open of nn air tight  heater, which Mr. Boyd hud filled,  (putting off the draft whon he went  on I,  I   Mr. Boyd lias the sympathy   of    all  in  the unfortunate ocourronri..  An order-in council hus Iteen passed  by the cabinet prohibiting, until the  31st of March, entry to ull Britiah  Columbia portB of nrtizuns und laborers of any kind. This order is general  in application, and is not restricted to  any particular race or pcoplo coming  from any country. Officially the reason given for the government's action  is tho present congested stale of labor  on tho Pacific coast. Tho state ol the  Hindoo question and the probability  of a tremendous influx of Hindoos for  which, according to secret advices iu  the possession ol the government arrangements had been made, indicated  that British Columbia would have been  flooded with Hindoos during tho next  few mouths before the expected legislation could he passed by parliament  or time allowed to consider what is  realized as a serious problem, und to  devise suitable measures for enactment  during the next session.  SILVER WEDDING  AT BENVOULIN  SCHOOJ. CONCERT WILL BE HELD  ON FRIDAY NEXT  The imhlir school concert which is  to'take plucc ou Friday evening noxt  is the first of its kind to be held here,  and will, no doubt prove a greut    at-  't ruction.

There was, however, little  business done as only two or three  complaints of a  minor character were  a big 92,000 electric pipe organ which'heard. The court was preceded by  will furnish military band music. Ev- 'session of the Board of Licence Com-  orything is to be done to make tho nriBsioners, who held their regular eta-  place attractive, and tho young people, tutory meeting to renew the licenoes  will, no doubt welcome this new source f0r the year. This meeting too, was  of amusement, 'only of a formal nature,  Kelowna was favored this weak with  a visit from Sam Claphnui, champion  .light-heavyweight wrestler of l'.agland.  .Clnpham, who is at present staying in  Vernon, came down the valley to conclude arrangements for u match with  Clarence Eklund who is at present  (raining in Kelowna with the assist'  ance of our local champion, Hob Sutherland. Tho mulch is to take place  iin Vernon about the middle of next  week, the exact day not yet having  I been fixod.  I Sam in a Yorkshire "type" hailing  from Bradford, nnd will no doubt  prove a tough opponent for Eklund.  Ife hud a good record behind him, and  claims the English championship in  his class from heating Goo. Petit at  Hengler'B Circus in London in 1900.  Ho has beon about seven mouths in  Canada, previous to which ho was  touring the states in company with  the great Haokensehmidt,  i Lust Friday evening, December 5th,  tinder tho auspices of the Ladies' Aid  of Benvoulin a large number of friends  and neighbors assembled at the home  [of Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Scott, it being  the -���"'th anniversary of their marriage,  When all the guests had arrived,  Mrs. Lytle, secretary of the Ladies'  Aid Society read the following ad-  dross:  "This being the anniversary of your  silver wedding we, the members of  Benvoulin Ladies' Aid Society,-together with our friends and neighbors, ask  vou to accept theso articles from us,  not for their intrinsic value', but as  it slight token of our appreciation nml  esteem for you. ' Wc are expressing  the w-.sh of one and all when we say  that we hope that both of you may  I* spared many years to use them and  to be reminded theroby of our hearty  appreciation of your kindly disposition  and your ever readiness tp help in  time of need. We therefore join in  in wishing you nil a very j happy and  prosperous future."  While (he above address, was being  rend -Miss Lily Patterson handed Mrs.  Scott   a tray laden with     silverware.  Mr. Scott in replying thanked those  present for the beautiful presents and  also for their good wishes. He said  that 25 years ago they looked forward  to a happy life, ami hud not been  disappointed.  Thc remainder of the ovenlng was  spent in a good old-fashioned way,  with uhundunce of good things to eat,  which hml beon brought along by the  ladies, und as tho "wee Sma' 'oors"  drew near,'and just before the gathering dispersed, all joined hands nnd  sang "Auld Lang Syne" and "They  are .lolly Good Fellows."  "1 have read the very full report in  tho Kelowna Becord," remarked the  lion. Price Ellison to Mayor -lonos at  a meeting this morning at the Board  of Trade offices of the special committee which was appointed to deal with  tho question of Mission Creek, to bo  present at whioh tho Minister of Finance and Agriculture had speoiully  motored through from Vernon.  His worship, who acted ae spokesman for the committee, introducing  the subject, was referring to the re  cent meeting of settlers in the Mission  Creek school, hence the Hon. Price Ellison's remark, indicated that he was  well posted on the matter.  Mayor Jones, however, emphasized  various points that were brought out  at thut mooting, and read tho petftlon  that the committee had prepared, the  context of which appeared In our last  week's issue.  Thc whole situation was reviewed at  considerable length. T he minister listened very sympathetically to all the  argumonts brought forward and admitted that tho question of Mission  Creek was a serious problem���moro  serious than most people thought, especially to those owning land alongside tho croek.  As a result of tho meeting Mr. Ellison had the following tolegram despatched to Sir Richard MoBride.  "Settlers desirous of making appoint  ment with yourself and Minister of  Public Works re protection works at  Mission Creek. Glad if can give them  a date at Victoria. Answer cure of  secrotnry Board of Trade, Kelowne,.���  Price Ellison."  Mr. Ellison, who was accompanied  by Mr. Hamilton Lang, was heartilv  thanked for coming through to Kelowna u ..i!,'!.g such a keen interest in  the matter.  Mr. L. Richmond is in town this  week having come down from tho count  on a short businoss visit.  Cambridgo University defeated Oxford in the annual rugby iootball game  at Queen's Club by thirteen points   to  throe.  The government has decided to lei  the law take its course in the oase of  Paul Spintlam who is under sentence  of death for tbe murder of Constable  Kindness.

To tho Editor of the Kelownn Record,
Dear Sir.—ln your newspaper of December i, 1918 there in an interesting
report about the last mooting of thu
residents of the Mission Creek which
report is not rjuite correct so far as it
gives to the reader the impression that
nil farmers present at the meeting declined tho suggestion for a'dyking municipality. In order to avoid this
Falfe impression I would like to state
in your estimable paper that thc undersigned farmer on being invited to
join the deputation which had to interview the government at Victoria,
refused lo do it, saying that as long
as no dyking municipality was formed
this deputation, in his jpinion, would
have no formal powfr, either to make
any proposition to the government,
or to accept any proposition from
it in the name of the residents of the
Mission Creek. Since wo have the
''Draining, Dyking and Irrigation Act"
of Sfith FefcrunrVj 1913 the only way
ol approaching SUOOOSBhllly the government is clearly traced by this new-
act. First of all we, have to forma
dyking municipality as prescribed by
thc above mentioned new act for tlie
piirf-ose of treating nn a body corporal* with the government about all further steps to take '** the mattw of
protecting thm win. valley against
Mission Creek. One lmcked by the
legal form of a dyking municipality
we would have a good chance to obtain from the government even more
thnn 50 per cent of tho cost, the government itself being a deeply interested party in the dyking district as
owner of several miles of public roads
which aro seriously ondangerod by the
Croek in its present condition. Tho
forming of a dyking municipality, is
also the only way to lay the expense
equitably on every one Interested along
the linos suggested by Mr. Scolt.
It was objected a I the meeting by
Mr. A. Patterson that the formation
of such a municipality would involve
risk of heavy liabilities in case of damage caused by lho creek. But this liability is limited by seotion 58 of the
Dyking Art to damages caused ''by the
works executed" and aleo .imited to
hinds, "not taken". Therefore we
would not assume any responsibility
for further Vagrancies of the creek, unless the owners of damaged land "not
Inkcn" (by the Dyking Municipality)
(.mild prove flint tho damage caused
to their land was the direct, result of
works executed" and alno limited to
nieipality.
May T say also that   in  my opinion
the present   policy of   the government
to contribute only a certain per cent-
age to the works which might bp proposed    is the only    right  and 'reasonable policy in consideration of the incalculable consequences , which    would
follow such a precedent as bearing nil
evpensw.    hy  the     government   alone,
There  are  hundreds  of  creeks  like the
Mission Creek in B.C., and   were   the
government to consent to boar all expenses in a case like ours there would
soon    be such a rush,   of applications
for similar protective     works, regardless of the costs that tho government
would not be able to  face  them. This
policy of bearing only a    certain per
oentagfl is   exactly the    same   in     nil
European countries, as far as T know
and it is tho only policy which gives
to tho government a certain guarantee
that  there  is n  real   emergency    and
that the works,re.|iie..ted by   the residents of a certain district  mean  real
improvement to that district and are-
in reasonable proportion to the cost.
As to the idea, w'hich was suggested
at the meeting that  81,000 to *5,0CH>
would    be    sufficient     to put   Mission
Creek in fairly good shape, I oan Hot
believe that    such  a sum would     do*
It needs not only cleaning up of     all
drift, timber,  which alone would     tako
from SI,200  to *1,500 every year    ac
cording to Mr. Hereron, and a proper
dyking of the lower end (about four
miles) of the.creek on both sides, but
also the erecting of strong, retaining
walls on the foot of the orumbling
banks below the ffi.L.0. bench as proposed by Engineer Girdwood, and, laBt
but not least, the dredging of an uninterrupted channel from the mouth
of the creek up to the lower end of
the so-called Speer's cut. As long ns
this dredging work is not done in a
suitable manner (starting at the very
mouth) there will still remain the injurious tendency of the creek to form
new banks whore the water is allowed
to spread and to flow slowly. On the
other hand the result of the dredging
work being started at the mouth
would be a tendency of tho creek to
deepen its bod above tho dredged channel. Another weak point, the removal
of which is very urgent and might be
costly, is Casorso's big pipe-line crossing the creek on a suspension
bridge built of strong iron cables. This
bridge is hanging so deep that tho open space botween the pipe nnd the bed
of the creek measures not more thnn
10 inches (say less than one foot) and
ihis right in the middle of the creek
where n big bank of gravel has been
formed, as u result of the straight cut
(so called Spoor's cut) wliich was dredged last year with the aid of tho government. What will happen as so;in nS
thc water gets a little higher, carrying branches and whole trees against
thut bridge? The wooden pipe might
break under the shock of a hig tree,
but the strong iron cables would hold
and in a few moments the strongest
beaverdam would lie built without the
id of any beaver.
No one could tell what would be
the result of such an obstruction of
tho whole creek. A small charm-1
hedged through lhe bank below the
pipe-line would not at all remove the
danger, such a channel having the effect that tho floating trees would be
attracted to that channel in the middle of the creok; that is io say just
to the weakest part, where the suspension bridge approaches negretrt the
creek lied.
These  are some reasons  for  which I
if only refused lo join the deputation, but also refused to sign the jie
tilion .which was Inter on presented to
Ihe residents of Mission Creek.'
I am quite of the opinion of the
chairman of the meeting, Mayor Jones
that it is better to face the question
now rather than have meetings after
the damage has been done, and the
sending of a deputation to Victoria
with the idea to influence the government to assume responsibility for the
creek proves the good will to do sonic
thing on that line. Therefore T did
not refuse to contribute a few dollnrs
to cover the expenses of tho deputation, although I am of the opinion
that this step, without having formed
a dyking municipality, is nothing
more than losing time and money.
Yours respectfully.
Dr. P. do PFYFFER.

Letters of a Self-raised Office Boy
to His Pal
In which  Jimmy   tells ol Kelowna haDPenltuts
tu  Mr. Sidney llurpfi', of Vancouver, B. 0.
Dear Sid.— Just a line to let you
know that everything is lovely and the
goose hangs high.
Wo made a big killing on tho Waterloo pictures, everybody ttnd his brother were there, and all seemed ploaaed.
On Saturday night our offering in
the Opera House will bo the Boston
Opera Company in "Said Pnsha", a
liflu opera which for tunefulness and
clean comedy has seldom been equalled. I have seen it myself and know
whereof I speak. The pictures will
be run in the Dreamland on that evening.
Now Sid, I have a painful duty to
perform, a duty which tears my heart
cords, hut it needs must be done. You
will recall that in my laat letter I
said if 1 did not hear from you our
friendship must cense. As I have
heard nothing1 but silenco from you,
the time has come when our ways
must part. Henceforth we can be nothing but strangers. You havo bov-
ired the silken cords of friendship with
the rusty knife of neglect. Oh! Sid,
now could you treat me so? Have
OU forgotten how many times I sav-
I your life, by dragging you away
from the bar before the under-tow
could pull you  under?
Blow!  Blow thou wintry winds
Thy tooth is not  so keen  as man's
ingrntitude!
Fnought All is ovor, Farewell, forever, false and faithless friend! Never
let me see that perfidious face of yours
again, unless you come to pay me tbo
rest of the money you owe mc. I
must close now, for the scalding tears
are blinding me.
flood bye forever,
JIMMY.
SID REPLIES TO ,1'IMMY
Dear  Jimmy.— If  I    didn't     know
where vou came from I should certainly   think  you    hailed  from  Missouri—
not   that  I consider you to be in the
all-wise  "show-mo"  class— but rather
on account of the fact that you have
ul'l  t he    "ear-marks"  of a first class
nude.    You are sure some kicker, Now
what's  all   thif.  noise  about  me    not
writing  to you.    Didn't  I send you a
Xmas card last New Years? Don't that
show  1    never forget you?
Well—say Jimmy, old pal, T think
I'll tako all that back for I must admit I feel a twinge of conscience once
in a while, and I guess I ought to
write oftener. So rather than incur
the awful penalty of your great displeasure and the possible calamity of
your quitting writing, I hereby faithfully promise to scrawl you a few
lines about twice a month. It's about
three weeks too early to make resolutions, but for your sweet sake, I'll
endeavor to keop that one.
Oh mo! How I sigh for the happy
old times. Do you remember bow you
had a dear realtive to bury every afternoon there was a big ball game
on. And can you forget that day you
told the boss you wanted off to attend the funeral of your great aunt,
and how he said "All right sonny-
just jump into my car, and we'll go
out   togetherl" (
But sny—talking about sport, we are
having some great hockey games down
hero now. Wo havo a swell rink and
home mude ice, and believe me the
boys are putting up a real classy article of hookey.
I don't suppose you get any skating
up in your wonderful Okanagan Oar-
den of Eden? You seem to be kind of
nutty about moving pictures—well 1
don't blame you—who isn't? 1 saw
a swell picture in one of the Ornn-
\ ille street theatres a few days ago.
It was "Ivan-toe" from the famous
novel by Sir Walter Scott, and T
would just rise 'lo remark, that if your
boss is the wise guy yon think he in
he will certain for sure get thai picture if he has to bust a trace doing
it. I never saw o picture that I
liked better than "Ivanhoe". The actors are tho best I ever saw in pictures, and the scenery was magnificent—they sny the picture was taken
in England.
By the way I met a man railed
Dean a few days ago. He is running
a picture house in South Vancouver.
He told me he was recently manager
of the Dreamland theatre in Vernon.
I'm sure that's around your country
romewhero. Didn't you once tell mo
that Vernon is a suburb of Kolowna?
What? Jimmy, old boy, should tho
exigences of an unrelenting fate ever
cause you to feel that you are wasting your sweetness on the desert air
of the Okanagan, remember that you'll
bo wolcomod back to the fold with
open arms by your old chum in Vancouver and particularly by your old
pal. SID.

All kinds'off Repairs  BERNARD AVENUE,  KELOWNA.  During the oourse of the government -enquiry into wtwttirn freight rutes  I which ia proceeding at Ottawa, Mr.  W-hi'tli., junior oounsel for the government declared that tho analysis of the  figures relating to the C.P.R., for thd  weat made it porfectly clear that the  C.P.R. could carry all ita passengers  within tho Manitoba division free and  still Jhiave a profit on freight of 185,188-  670. In Saskatchewan all the passenger., could be carried free and .make a  profit of $886,000, through freigbt.  whilo in Alberta and similar conditions the freight alone would yield n  profit of 552,205,088.  This" commented Mr. Whitla "is  a remarkable statement, It clearly  demonstrates that the freight rates  are abnormal and the west is entitled  to some redress. What I desire to emphasize more particularly ia that the  difference in the earnings in the west  ia out of all proportion to the difference in the earnings botween the east  and west. Thia is due to the fact that  in 1911. tho average oarnings per ton  mile in tho west was 81.20 per milo, as  compared with 83 centa on'tha eastern  divisions.  Mr. Whitln dealt specifically with  the difference in the rates charged in  the oust and west. Ho said that a  comparison of theae show that on  distances from 50 miles to 550 miles  rates are from 9 to 89 per cent, higher in the west than in the eust. On  grain and grain products, on distances  from 100 to 600 miles, rates on the  western divisinns are higher by 143 to  191 per cent, than those charged east  of Sudbury. Correspondingly heavy  spreads na between western and eastern rates wore shown on cement, coal,  livestock, wire fencing, etc.  Ellison News  On Friday last two very successful  debates were held in the Bchool houBe.  The .first, "Resolved that the city boy  is more out of place in the country  that the country boy in the oity."  Masters H. Jiang and Joe Conroy  spoke well for the affirmative, but  could not, withstand the well reasoned  arguments of their opponents, Masters  C. G. Whitaker, and W. Hereron, who  gained the approval of the majority of  the audience.  'I'he second debate, "Resolved that  women know more about cooking than  men." waa easily won by Mrs. J. M.  Lung and Mr. J. Barron on the affirmative side. Mr. R. Booth, who spoko  well for the negative, was at a dis>-  advantago in not having tho assist-  auce ol Mrs. 8. Silke who waa unable  to attend owing to sioknesa.  Next Friday will be Magazine night  when all the members are invited to  take .part.

In time the qu��.wtion of coaling  United States war vessels will be a  vital ono and coal pocketa are being  prepared now while the machinery is  on the ground. The bottom of the canal haa been chosen for the storage  chamber so that the coal will be  safely hidden from any possible enemy. A further advantage lioa in tho  fact that coal deteriorate* loss rapidly under wator than when exposed to  the air.  Several drills and dredges nso now  at work oxcavating the bottom of the  canal and building tho storage chambers.  ROYAL CHRISTMAS CARDS  Somo very excellent specimens of  Christmas carda havo been produced  this year, first in rank and artistic  quality being those choson by members  of the royal family. '  The King'B carda by Howard Davie,  represents the meeting of Richard  Coeur do Lion and Queen IWongarih  with Saladin. Tho Queen's card, by  John Bacon, A.K.A., is a very charming picture of the meeting of William  Prince of Ornnge, with Princess Mary,  who "No sooner met but they looked,  no sooner looked, but they loved."  "Benedicte" is the subject of the  card chosen by Howard Davit! for  Queen Alexandra while the Prince ofi  WaleB and tho German Emperor ore  supplied by Bernard Gibble with two  stirring scenes that recall episodes in  the naval history of their respective  countries, tho Prince's showing tho  "Victory in port am mrt h Harbor," the  Emperor's "Tho Hamburg Fleet putting to soa for tho protection of the  nnnsoatic States."  During September and October, 101?,  several hundred bushels of pine cones  were gathered by the Forest Rangers  on Dominion forest reserves. This work  is often mado easy by the squirrels,  which store large quantities of grct.ii  cones in holea fur use in the wintor  months. The rangers spread out the  cones in some dry place, and when  the scales open, the seeds are shaken  out, and the following spring tho best  of them are planted in the forest nurseries.  There aro more than one hundred  tree species found in Canada, of which  only thirty are conifers. ,Yot these latter constitute Canada's timber wealth.  Of those coniferous trees, or "ever-  LTi'oens", spruce easily takes first place,  constituting over one-third of the lumber and three-quarters of the pulp  wood cut in Canada in 1912. Four of  tho five species of spruce are of commercial importance, and at least two  of these five aro found in every province of -the dominion.  -o-  Thls summer an export Boil analyst  was engaged by tho Forestry Branch  of the Dominion government to substantiate the findings of the forest  surveyors in cases where there was any  doubt as to the non-agricultural character of forest   areas to be reserved.

DYEING TREES  Deep-blue oak or bright green obest-  nut wood may now be grown to furnish new effects for furniture or decorating, for it has been found to be  entirely possible to dy�� a tree before  it is chopped down.  An expert on dyeing has found that  if a suitable kind of chemical is used  the sap ol the tree will take up the  dye and distribute it evenly all  through the wood of the trunk and  branches; but a fast color must boused or the dye will fade in timber just  as it would in cloth.  ...The method is to bore a small hole  completely through a tree, near the  ground, plug up one end of the bole  and in the other side supply ths dye  from a bottle, or some other reservoir  that will feed as much chemical constantly as the sap of the tree will take  op.  The dyes��muni, be soluable in wator  and of a kind readily diffusible from  cell to cell of the wood, in order to  spread,evenly, Eosine, tor instance ho  found would only give a red-veined ��rf-  fect to the timber. Malachite green  aad methylene blue give very even  coloring.  A fast yellow iB obtained Irom a curtain aniline dye and a salmon red  from another ��� synthetic pigment.  Another investigator has found that  sick trees can be cured by injections  into their veins, the sap carrying the  remedy to all parts of the tree and  effecting a cure. His experiments  were. conducted on apple trees that  were apparently dying. One tree absorbed three quarts of medicine by intravenous Injection in tho course of  twenty days r and then began to improve rapidly. Leaves came out, buds  appeared, and in six months' time  many branches grew ten inches in  length.  Another troe, which waB dried up  and black, took, its dose of three or  four quarts in throe dayB and fully  rocovered. Peach trees alBo yielded  to the treatment. The medicine used  was mostly fertilizers, such . as potassium nitrate in a liquid solution, or a  solution of manure; but for some conditions the medicine was simply pure  water or a solution of oommon salt.���  Saturday Post.

Just here is  where something has been overlooked,  in the opinion of a scientific investigator. The leaves of the coffee plant  are not only available for making a  beverage, but they posseBB properties  whioh make them more valuable than  ths coffee beans.  In appearance aod fragrance the  dried coffee leaves very muoh resemble those of the tea plant. An infusion of them made, just as in the  case of ordinary tea, an aromatio bsver  age is produces that it bitter to the  taste, but not disagreeably bo, and  whioh contains almost as much theine  as real tea, whilo tbere ia a muoh  smaller proportions of tannin.  It may yet be poBeiblo to grow tea  and coffee on the same plant.  NEW WATER LEGISLATION  PROMISED  Under the direction of Hon. W. R.  Ross, minister of lands, department  experts of the foreat branch have just  completed tbe revision and consolidation of the provincial water aot.  In the undertaking of this important  work of codifying existing water legislation in the province, it was not proposed by Hon. Mr. Rosa to make any  sweeping changes, but he aimed to  make the legislation more readable  and more suitable in the arrangement  of its various parts so that'lawyers  and others might no longer be able  to speak of the amendments to the  water aet as "another dose". It is  believed that there is no subject more  complicated than that of water legislation.  The fact that from the earliest  times only recorded rights to use  water in British Columbia have been  recognized coupled with the further  faot that for several decades loose  methods of administration have prevailed having combined to mako the  task of codifying legislation and  bringing records up to date an Important one. The holders of ths early  records, it is claimed, have in many  cases failed to make the slightest development for 10, 20 rr 30 years, but  were left undisturbed in their holdings. Not only were many of the old  records vague and uncertain in their  meaning, but their validity was often  open to question. They were often  filed away in dirty and forgotten volumes and they applied perhaps to  streams as to the wator supply of  which these was tbe utmost ignorance.  A few years ago water holders  pressed for legislation dealing wltb  old records and the water aot of 1909  was passed. This iB the basis of the  present legislation and it is regarded  in many quarters as an admirable  piece of legislation. It constituted a  board of investigation, whose,duty it  was to determine existing righta to tbe  use of water in various streams. The  making of satisfactory adjudications  required careful surveys and the compilation of hydraulio data.  Farmers in the dry belts of the  provinoe will soon now be enab.ed to  co-operate in the establishment and operation of their irrigation systems, it  Is declared by the minister ol lands,  il the bill ol water municipalities becomes law. The bill will largely affect the Okanagan, Southeastern Kootenay, Kamloops and Ashcroft district.  sots  COAL  COAL  WARNING  There is every prospect for a  COAL FAMINE  for the coming winter owing  to labor troubles at the mine*.

Carl Englehnrdt, a plumber was fined fifty marks last Saturday for stealing a shirt belonging to Prince Sigis  mund of TTohenzollorn a second cousin  of the Kaiser. The prince changed hia  shirt after dinner in Berlin and send  it home, by a Bervant. The servant  was robbed on a surburban train. Tho  nhirt has boon, recovered.  Thi. management of the Kelowna  Growers' Exchange are making arrangements with the Department of  Agriculture to hold one of the government packing schools in Kelowna during the present'winter. Ab in previous years the department undertake  to provide an expert instructor, and  the Growers' Exchange wiM provide accommodation for tho school in its own  building. A great deal of good work  has been done by these packing schools  in thi; pnst, and many who have taken advantage of them have equipped  themselves with a means of earning  good money during the rush of the  packing season. Tho instruction is  given in a course of twelve lessons,  for which a fee of $3.00 is charged.  For the convenience of those who find  it impossible to attend during the  day time a separate evening course iB  to be arranged if possible.'A separate  class will aleo be held Tor ladieB should  sufficient of the fair; sex make application. Applications, it may be mentioned are to be mode without delay  to the manager of the Kolowna Growers' Exchange.  CAN NOT TRAVEL JN    SLEEPERS  WITHOUT BERTH TICKETS  Several of the through trains on the  ('.P.R. main line have been for some  time composed entirely of steeping  cars, and as no day coaches are provided, passengers must, necessarily provide themselves with sleeping ear accommodation. A report has lately  boon current that in response to rep*  resentations made to them, the Board  of Railway Commissioners have issued an order that even though no  day coaches -are comprised in the train  passengers muit be allowed to travel  without being obliged to purchase  sleeping oar tickets. The report, however had now been officially contradicted, no such order having been issued.  Travellers therefore must still book  berths on these trains or wait for  trains with day coaches.  OIL EXCITEMENT AT MISSION  Indications of the existence ol oil,  petroleum and natural gas have been  discovered in largo quantities in the  vicinity of Mission, and as a consequence the settlors in that district  have been keeping (he local land office jat New Westminster very busy  during the liast few days by staking  all the available land in that section.

The lock-gates and sills of the Panama canal are all made from "Green-  * heart", a large tree found in tho dense  jungles *>f northern South America, especially British Guinea. The wood, will  bear, without crushing, a weight of  six tons to the square inch, and will  remain sound for a hundred years under water, being immune to the attacks of tho salt-water toredo. A single log costs several hundreddollars.  Fire which started in the drying  room of the Woodstock, Ont., Evaporating company destroyed the building  and a thousand cases of dried apples.  The damage is estimated at over ten  thousand dollars.  Fifty-eight carloads of fruit and  produce were shipped from ihe Okanagan Valley during the week ending  nt midnight, Tuesday November 19th.  bringing the total for the year up to  1,737 carloads. At a conservative average valuation of $750 per oar, this ,  represents $1,302,760. These, figures  take no account of shipments in lean  than carload lots, nor of express ship-  iieuts, which have been heavy.  That Bawdust and other mill wa-ttc  can be profitably manufactured into  briquettes for fuel is evident from tho  fact that a large lumber oompany in  British Columbia is erecting a 850,000  plant, which will have a daily output  of about thirty tons of such briquettes  Thoy will aoll for about five dollaiR  a ton at the mill.  Because the late government expropriated the townBite of Transcona,  Manitoba, for purposes of the Transcontinental railway, the Canadian Northern, which owned the peopcrty now  claims upwards of a million dollars  This is greatly in excess of the estimate of government valuators, and  a suit has been instituted in the Exchequer court.

Poultry  Association ia being' hold this wjok  at flrand Forks, and promises to be a  notable event in the poultry world.  J.��present ativee from all parts of thc  province will bo present. A convention will ulso bo held, and a good  programme of addresses by prominent  poultry fanciers has been prepared.  The speakers will include G. M.

Tho members of -the  Grand Forks Association are enter-  taining tho visitors to a banquet. Mr.  TC. T.. Ward, sseretary of tho Kolowna  society  will  represent   Kelowna.  The Annual Poultry show is over  once more and local poultry koepors  are now turning themselves to the  practical problems of getting their  birds into laying condition in order  to reap some of the benefits of tbe  present high prioe at which the '"hen-  fruit" is selling. If it hits done nothing else the show has demonstrated  that here at any rate a better 4ype  of bird is boing raised than was the  ease a low years ago: that farmers are  realizing that good stock pays better  than any old stuff. Tho general display at the show was in the opinion  of Mr. Garland, the judge, a credit to  the district, and included, birds which  would hoiu their own in any of the  big shows. He'also complimented the  local association on the satin factory  way in which tho birds were cooped,  and upon the arrangements generally.  During the course of last week's  show, Mr. A. Notley, who was acting  as judge's assistant, made a eerier of  notes upon the birds exhibited,  which may bo of interest to the various prize winners, as giving some olue  to the points for which the various  positions were assigned:  BARRED ROCKS      ,  First Cock.���Fair in type and barring, coarse in furnishings, little too  high on legs.

HOMEMADE CANDIES, Always Fresh  For the BEST   (the  Best Cost No  More), go  to  Alsgard's  The Confectioner  BOARD INVKSTWUTED 500 WATEB  CLAIMS  The water rights Investigation board  look up 500 water record chums in  Kummerluud, 1'ei.chlnnd, I'etiticton and  Fairview on its recent trip through thu  interior. In addition to this number  ol leases the board ulso ant upon several important oaBee at Kamloops and  Ashcrofl, which, whilo not so numerous, took up a groat amount of time.  The board sat first nt Ashcroft, at  which place it heard claims for rights  of storage in Bluearth Lake, a tributary of Hat Creek, and .on claims for  the right of utonige water in a reservoir site on Oregon -lack Creek.  DflblslonB were roserved.  At Summerland some 150 claims  were heard, covering practically all  the streams in the vicinity. No new  points were raised. At Pcachlana  there were about 100 cases up with  lfiO at I'etiticton. An important case  al this latter point was (regarding the  question of storage in Shoot Lake.  This case was adjourned, to come up  in Victoria in January. The contestants were tho Summerland Trust Co.,  nnd the Kettle Valley Railway Company, The Trust Company holds records for water in the Naramata district and il was alleged thai the railway oompany had built its tracks in  inch u way as to interfere with the  Rtoi'ngc of water in the lake men  tinned.  A number nf record claims which  had been allowed by the water rights  board of 11)10 came up for further  disposition upon the trip just completed, on points not determined by  the board itv 11)10.  There were about 160 cases before  the board at Fairview, most of them  being disposed  of almost   immediately.  At Kamloops consideration was  glvun to objections against claims for  the storage rights on streams tributary to Campbell Creek. This matter  was up at a previous sitting in Kamloops when the claimants advanced  their side of the Case, Decision was  reserved.  The board will remain in Victoria  for about three months before again  taking  up  field   work.  DATE OF  PARLIAMENT OPENING  Parliament will assemble on Thursday, January 15th.  The proclamation formally calling  Parliament together will be published  at an early date in the Canada'Gazette.  The fixing of January 15 as the dato  for the opening will give the Government a period of six weeks in which  to prepare the sessional programme,  which promises to be a fairly heavy  ono.  Whether or not there will !>e legisla-  tian dealing with naval defence has  not been announced, but tho probabilities are thnt the question will again  bo up at  tho approaching session.  Tho redistribution bill made neoos-  n.,ry by the Wt decennial census, and  which will greatly increase the representation of the west, may easily prove  to be thc most conspicuous measure of  the session.  Dills lo consolidate and revise the  Railway Act, to amend tho Companies  Act and Civil Service Act will... lie  introduced. The latter will probably  make provision for a system of superannuation for tho inside service, and  will bring into effect a number of  recommendnt ions made by Sir. Geo.  Murray in his report to the government . *��  The Highways Act, which has twice  fallen by the wayside because of senate  amendments, will again be introduced, ns will a bill to amend the Merchants Shipping Act and a bill to regulate  the control  of explosives j  It is expected that many days of the  session will be taken up with thc consideration of the tarif and the high  cost of living. Tho debate on the address in reply to the speech from the  throne will probably occupy the attention of Parliament for the first week,  as Sir Wilfrid Laurier is almost certain to move an amendment calling  for the removal of the duties on food  products.  AMKUICAN   I2MBABG0 OX  CANADIAN  POTATOKS  AGREEMENT OF NATIONS WILL  STOP WAR   EXPENDITURE  There are people in Great Britain,  as in every civilized country, who bo-  liove that to spend money in building  battleships and forging cannons is a  terrible waste. Mr. Asquith told tha  people at Leeds that the only way  such waste could bo stopped was by  the agreement of the nations. When  the people of nil tho great powera ) vera  resolved not to bear the burden    any  It   is feared at Ottawa  that the attempt  to  have  an  embargo  put     on  Canadian    potatoes by the    American ( ^^  authorities, owing to an alleged out- ( longer, their rulers must como to an  break of "powdery scab" has its com- j agreement lo stop spending money in  inercial as well as its scientific argu- building batth-ships. When that day  mont. Thoro is a big scarcity of* po- | ^ines tho end of war will,be near,  tatoea in the United States market  this year, and Canadian fnrmcrs have  been getting unusual prices across the  lino. Thero is a strong suspicion that  certain American interests which have  been trying to corner the potato market are behind the movement to place  an embargo on Canadian potatoes.

( :'  THE BOSTON OPERA COMPANY  Among the metnbera of the Boston  Opera Company, which appears at the  Opera House on Saturday next, December 13th in "Said Pasha", the following galaxy of talent will participate in exploiting the merits of this  most ^popular melange of mirth, music  and melody. Mine Hortense Travera,  a cousin of the famous generation of  ingers of the De Reskeys, is the proud  possessor of a magnificent soprano  voice and knows how to use it to the  best advantage. Although Miss Travera has beon trained to sing best in  the higher grade of mimic, she is not  verse to rendering the more modern  style, and introduced, with tolling elect, such songs as "Every Woman's  EyeB", "Because'j and various others  Mr. L, Barton Evans, tho> wonderful)  baritone, is another )grand opera singer who has forsaken that high plane  for the environment of the comic opera, and interpolates such numbera as  'Till the Sands of the Desert firow  Cold," and others equally ast popular.  The jaded playgoers who has been  surfeitod with musical medley which  hardly professes to do more than exploit a single waltz tune, will always  welcome-* comic opera. Any one of  the twenty Ringing numbers would be  in itsolf sufficient to insuro the success of the HO-caWed opera now-a-days,  and It is hard to believe that so many  popular melodies could be heard during the course of one play.  Mrs. Emmeline Pankhurst, England's  militant suffragette, sailed from New  York last week, taking with her, sho  said 820,000 collected during her recent lecture tour jn this country.
