Array Krtutoma Uctovb  ^e\ioiy��ai  VOL. X.   NO. 38.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY. AUGUST 6. 1918.���4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Regular Meeting of  City Council  Pledge Citizens to Continuance  of War Measures  The city council held ��� short  meeting Monday evening the principal business being the dealing  with several items of correspondence which had come to band.  The Mayor reported that in response to a request made through  the provincial secretary that all  cities would have public meetings  oo the fourth anniversary of the  war to reaffirm and endorse the  aims of the Allies, a special service of remembrance and intercession had been held in the park  Sunday evening at which a large,  majority of .the residents of the  district were present.  The following resolution, which  was similar to the one submitted  to gatherings throughout the Empire, was proposed by Aid. Rattenbury, seconded bv Aid. Duggan  and carried unanimously : " That  on the fourth anniversary of the  decision of the British people to  take up arms in defence of liberty  and justice, we the representatives  of the citizens of the City of Kelowna, on their behalf, solemnly  pledge ourselves to maintain unflinchingly our attitude of rendering the fullest measure of assistance  in the task of prosecuting to a victorious conclusion the struggle  which the British Empire and her  Allies are engaged.  The clerk was instructed to see  that this was wired to the Dominion prime minister.  The chief constable's report was  read showing one case before the  magistrate and 24 complaints received and investigated. In a discussion of the report it was suggested that fuller information be  given from month to month of  cases under the latter head of  "complaints received." The speed  of automobiles of automobile, and  motor-cycles in the city was again  discussed.  The monthly report of milk samples from the local dairies was ss  follows: D. C. Middleton, 4.0 per  cent.; Norman Day, 3.8 ; and J.  Birch. 3.6. .  As no tenders had as yet been  received for supplying the city  with cordwood it was decided to  again advertise.  Aid. Meikle reported that the  new chemical fire truck would be  completed and ready for operation  within the next two weeks.  Aid. Meikle stated that he had  be requested by the Fire Brigade  to have such work done on Haynes  Avenue as might be necessary to  make the fire hydrant accessible  in case of fire. The committee  was authorized to have this done.  Will Check Speculation  in Produce  The following letter has been  sent out by the Canada Food  Board to the trade:���  " With reference to the sale and  distribution in Canada of the 1918  apple and potato crop, it is impossible tat this early date to stale  what, if [any, action on the psfrt of  the Canada Food Board will be  necessary in order 'to obtain the  most satisfactory distribution of  these crops.  The Canada Food Board does  not intend to unnecessarily interfere with the regular channels of  trade in any way except to check  speculation, but will not hesitate to  do so if conditions warrant that  some action be taken. ^~  In negotiating for the purchase  or sale of apples, potatoes or other  roots, due consideration should be  given to the possibilities of some  action by the Board. Yours truly,  H. B. Thomson, Chairman.  Service of Intercession  and Remembrance  Great Crowd in Park Reaffirm  Determination to " Carry on"  Four years have passed by since  Great Britain and her Allies first  took up the fight against German  aggression, and threw in their lot  together in the cause of liberty and  justice. Sunday, August 4th, marked the anniversary of the declaration of war, and everywhere was  celebrated- by a renewal of the  vow to fight until the objects are  achieved, and the world-menace  of a war-mad nation has been  laid low.  Before one of the largest congregations ever gathered together  in Kelowna, a united service'of  " Remembrance ahd Intercession "  was held Sunday evening in the  city park.'and though there was an  utter absence of any thing approaching jingoism, there waa evidence  of that settled determination and  confidence in the ultimate issue  which has come to be the dominant feeling of the whole Empire.  The tone of the gathering was not  so much a demonstration of pa-.  triotic feeling and popular sentiment, as of serious consecration to  the great purpose.  The platform near the bandstand  was used foi the service which  was in charge of the local clergy,  each taking a part in the prayers  and scripture readings. Appropriate hymns had been selected in  which the congregation joined  heartily, the music being led by the  Kelowna Band.  An inspiring address was given  by the Rev. E. D. Braden. He recalled the causes which had led  up to the present conflict, and the  great and historic August 4. 1914,  when, all other means of adjustment having failed, the declaration  of war was signed, a responsibility  from which the Empire had never  since flinched, and would net until  victory was achieved. At that time  most of us had thought the conflict  would be a short one, but as the  months had gone by the nation  had settled down in more grim  earnest to see it through, and had  gradually come to realize the tremendous nature of the task it had  taken up. He spoke of the magnificent way in which the overseas  dominions had rallied to the help  of the motherland ; the readiness  with which discomfort and deprivation had been accepted ; the magnificent efforts and sacrifices of the  women. Periods of doubt and  disappointment had been passed  through but never had the nation  relaxed its effort or swayed from  the path laid down. And now it  seemed as though the tide was beginning to turn, and the next few  months were looked forward to  with great hopefulness. This was  a time he said not so much for  outbursts of patriotic fervour, but  for a solemn conservation of every  energy and resource to complete  the task in a way which would  assure a righteous and permanent  peace.  The Farmer*' Instituto propose  to motor to the Summerland Experimental Farm next week.  Those members who wish to go  will please phone Mr. L. E. Taylor  oY the secretary, or give their  names in at the office on Saturday  afternoon. The day and time of  departure have yet to be fixed.  Mr. Nelson Armstrong arrived  from Vancouver this morning.  Miss Hilda Ellis left for the  coast yesterdav.  Mr. J. L. Wilson left for Victoria  this morning.  Mrs. J. Sewell and family left  this morning for Calgary where  she will join her husband.  Miss Pearl White, lately of the  telephone office staff, left for Clo-  verdale yesterday, a breakdown in  health having made a change necessary.  Mr. and Mrs. Fumerton, with  Margaret and Frank, left this morning for a few weeks' stav at the  coast.  The Wolf Cubs returned this  morning from camp at Cedar  Creek, the rain making a rather  unpleasant ending to a very pleasant week.  Successful Flower and Vegetable  Show Held Saturday Last  Brilliant Display of Blooms From Kelowna Gardens Fills  Aquatic Pavilion���Crowd of Visitor* All Afternoon  The members of the Women's  Institute are congratulating themselves this week on the great success which attended the Flower  Show given in the aquatic pavilion  last Saturday afternoon. Beautifully situated for such a purpose,  the pavilion presented a very  charming appearance during the  hours'the show was in progress.  The hall was filled as it haj never  been before with a profusion of  choice blooms and plants from  Kelowna's gardens, and their beauty and fragrance was a delight to  the many visitors  The entry list had again almost  doubled itself ���a sure sign of increasing interest. Competition was  keen in almost everv class, and  some of the specimens showed  very high quality, giving the judges  no easy task to award the prizes.  There were in all 156 entries  against 79 last year. The addition  of a vegetable section, of course,  accounted for some of this increase  there being some 60 entries under  this head alone. This is as it should  be, Kelowna having taken up the  "war garden" idea with great en-  thasiasm.  It is estimated that about 250  people visited the show during the  afternoon���a very satisfactory total. From the proceeds of the show  the Institute will be able to hand  over to the Red Cross Fund a sum  amounting to over $90. This includes the returns fiom the sfele of  refreshments which the ladies hand  ed round during the afternoon.  Many of the prizes in the plant,  flower and vegetable sections were  specially donated by merchants  and friends.  A new and very successful feature was the contest for the best  kept flower and vegetable garden,'  originated by Mr. G. Chick, a class  which drew nearly twenty entries.  Mrs, Chick.it might be mentioned,  was one ol the principal exhibitors  at the show, carrying'off no fewer  than eleven first and four second  prizes.  The judges were Messrs. Palmer,  L. E. Taylor and Lawes. Following is a complete list of the prizewinners :���  Beat collection of houae planta (4 variet.  ie.), I, Mr..

Fruit Embargo Will Not  Be Lifted  Many inquiries have been received by the Dominion Fruil Commissioner as to the possible removal  or modification of the embargo on  shipments of apples to Great Britain, and the report just to hsnd  contains a statement concerning  the matter. Inquiries on thia subject have been prompted by lhe  failure of the fruit crop in England,  and the English trade is just as  desirous of receiving Canadian  fruit as Canadian shippers are to  get it across. The agitation is therefore a double-barreled one.  It seems quite certain, however,  that there will be no change in the  present situation. Explanations are  not necessary. Every foot of available steamship space is required  for the transportation of men,  munitions and food. The Canadian  apple, as well as many other articles of food, is not considered  essential, and until shipping facilities are in a much more stable  condition than at present,'all efforts  to modify the apple embargo must  be (utile.   o   The conference in London between the Food Controllers of the  United Kingdom, United Slates,  France and Italy is continuing its  labors. Satisfactory progress has  been made, iu the establishment  of an inter-Allied food eouncil.  Next Thursday to Be  Tag Day  Red Cross tag day will be held  as usual nn the date of .the annual  regatta, August 13. While many  generous subscriptions are n ade  to the local fund from a v .rieJir of  sources this is practically ilii only  appeal made during the >. r to  the public generally.

More improvement in Havel between Vancouver and Penlicton  has resulted in the inauguration of  an extra line sleeper on C.P.R. and  K.V.R. trains between these cities  Motor Cycle and  Auto, in Collision  Cyclist Crashes Through the  Windshield of Car  A motor cycle ridden by Percy  Rankin, of Glenmore, and a Ford  car containing Mr. and Mrs. Baldock, came into violent collision  last Saturday afternoon at the corner of Ellis Street and Bernard  Avenue,resulting in serious injuries  to the first named. Rankin was  coming along Ellis street at a high  speed while Mr. Baldock was  keeping to the left up the main  street intending turning down Ellis.  A poster hoarding shuts off the  view at that point and the two  machines were close upon each  other before the danger was realized.  The cyclist apparently thinking  Mr. Baldock was going straight up  the road swerved to the right just  as the car nade the turn. This  brought them together with a  terrific head on crash. Rankin was  thrown clear over the engine of  the Ford, his head striking the wind  shield and shattering the glass.  He was bsdly cut about the head,  and bleeding profusely. Mr. Baldock ran to his assistance and a  passing car rushed him off to the  hospital. His worst injury was a  frightful scalp wound, portions of  glass having to be removed, and  many stitches inserted. He was  also much bruised but did not lose  consciousness. He is now much  better and has returned to his  home.  Although suffering from the  shock of the accident and somewhat shaken, neither Mr. nor Mrs.  Baldock were really hurt. Both  machines, however, were damaged  the motor cycle being smasbed  almost beyond repair.  Enemy Planes Losing  Heavily  Eight hundred and forty-four  enemy aeroplanes were brought  down by the Allies during July,  while 325 Allied machines were  lost during the same period. British  aviators accounted for 410 planes,  French, 290; Italians, 106; Belgians,  4; Americans, 3. In addition, 26  planes were brought down in the  Balkans and 5 in Palestine. The  Germans destroyed 316 Allied  planes and the Bulgarians 5 and the  Austrians four.  The strike of munition workers  caused by the order-in-council  placing an embargo on skilled  labor, is definitely ended. Not  only have the absentees returned  to work, but they are hurrying  operations in hope ot making good  the time lost by the strike.  Oies at Victoria  Corp. Walter Wilson Succumbs  to Injuries  The flag over the city office has  been flying half-mast since Wednesday to mark the passing away  of another of Kelowna's soldier  boys in the person of Corp. Walter  Wilson, son of Mr. J. L Wilson of  the city power house staff. His  death came in hospital at Victoria,  where he had been lying for some  time past seriously ill as tbe result  of wounds received over eighteen  months ago.  A few days ago the family were  apprised of his serious condition  and his mother journeyed to Victoria Friday last, arriving only a  short time before the end came,  Corp. Wilson, who was barely  22 years of age, enlisted early in  the war. He had been living in  Alberta for some years and he  joined up in Winnipeg. He was  on scout duty at the time of tbe  famous Vimy Ridge fight, and it  was there he received his wounds,  caused by shrapnel and the thrust  of a German bayonet. His injuries  were further complicated by his  having to lie out unattended for a  considerable time, and through  this he contracted diabetes, which  ultimately caused his death.  He was home in Kelowna for a  short time in June, and his obvious  weakness and broken condition  excited general sympathy.  His brother, Billy, was one of  the first Kelowna boys to return  wounded from the front. He is  now in Calgary.  Mr. Wilson left this morning for  Victoria in response to an urgent  telegram from his wife who is seriously ill there as a result of her  hurried journey and the shock of  her son's death.  Appointments to B. C.  University  Two appointments to the staff of  the university have just been made.  The professrs appointed are Or.  G. G. Sedgewick, associate professor of English and head of the department, and Dr. A. E. R. Boak,  assistant professor and head of  the department of history. Both  are known in this province as they  taught here before taking up their  post-graduate studies. Dr. Boak  belongs to a Vancouver family, and  is the son of H. W. C. Boak, barrister. Dr. Sedgewick belongs to a  well-known Nova Scotia family and  is a nephew of the Rev. Dr. Thomas  Sedgewick, and of the late Justice  Sedgewick of the Supreme Court of  Canada.  Miss  Myrtle  Schafries left yesterday for Saskatoon.  l."~~                                                                         '   !    ���               ���������1  l/^t.

In view of the fact that lhe department of public works is constantly caller! upon to take care ol  damage occasioned by lhe waters  of more or less turbulent streams  without any hope of being able to  meet the demands in anything like  an adequate manner, Hon. Dr.  King has come to the conclusion  thnt legislation will be necessary  In relieve his department of some  of the burden it is now attempting  to carry Legislation will probably  take the line of a policy of local  assessment by which both the  owners of property at the mercy  o( non-navigable streams, and tire  residents of the district may con.  tribute their share of lhe liability.  Whether this announcement will  have any bearing upon that "hardy  annual" discussion at Board of  Trade meetings, the menace of  Mission Creek, remains to be seen.  It is announced by the Canada  Registration Board that persons  losing their registration certificates  should make application to the  c-ntral registrar, Canada Registration Board, Ottawa, for a new one.  When making such application  persons should give all the information possible, as to the number  of the lost certificate, the name and  address of the registrar who issued  it, ftt<.. Communications of this  nature addressed lo the central  registrar may be sent free and  there is nd charge (or the new  certificate.  A circular lias been issued by  the Education departrient to all  High School pupils who have been  doing work under the S.O.S. movement, urging that the special privileges granted to such pupils in the  interests of food production be  nit abused. It is asked that all  who are not particularly required  to continue their farm work be at  the school at the proper opening  date. Absence Irom the school  for any cause will lend to retard  srhool progress, and such delay  will have to be made up by harder  work later on in the session, and  interfere with regular school routine. No pupil nlioulr! thus neglect  his studies except for the most  necessary farm work, which cou'd  not be done otherwise.   o   It is predicted that the B.

The proposal is to establish a Provincial  Bureau of Fire Prevention which  will operate through local bureaus ;  the membership lo be composed  ol persons representative of this  department, the municipalities, the  fire departments, the insurance  companies, and all bodies or inter-  eala able and willing to render aid  in this connection. The buresu  will prepare propaganda, furnish  information and plan a campaign  to diminish the loss by fire.  There is a tremendous field ior  an organization of this character.  In Canada the annual value of  property destroyed by fire appro,  aches the sum of $3 for every man,  woman and child, and surpasses  even the figures for the United  State., where a campaign is being  vigorously waged over the length  and bread.h of the land. In Europe  the average loss per capita is well  under 50 per cent., proving that  conditions in America call for a  cure. This yearly waste of our  resources is not inevitable for countless statistics demonstrate thai  about 60 per cent, of the fires which  occur could be prevented by the  exercise of more care. The Commission of Conservation sitting at  Ottawa has thoroughly investigated  the whole subject throughout the  Dominion, and has just published  a book, emphasizing the need for  action.  It is perhaps needless to point  out that, engaged as Canada is in a  war, when industries, plant, food  and materials ol all kinds are of  vital importance, there is an additional reason for taking all possible steps to preserve properly.  Il is not sufficient to increase production unless at the same lime  what exists is safeguarded. Every  fire destroys food or n.aterial <vhich  though compensated bv insurance  money, diminishes the available  supply and requires labor to  replace.  It is earnestly desired to enlist in  the movement every agency which  can render service A general  conference of all parties interested  will be held as soon as possible to  formulate plans for prompt action.  Communications desiring information on the subject should be ad  dressed to the Superintendent of  Insurance, Parliament Buildings.  Victoria, B. C.

Germans Can't Close  English Channel  "Suicide" is the word used by  the German naval authorities to  describe what it would mean for  the kaiser's navy lo attempt to  interfere wilh the transport of  allied troops and munitions across  the English Channel,  According to German papers  considerable irritation has been  caused In Geiinany by the rapidity  with which England has been  throwing men into France, and  criticism has been directed at the  admiralty. In a vigorous defence  Rear Admiral Karl Hollweg points  out that the activity of the German  navy is subject to certain geographical limitations.  "A voluntary attempt to remove  these limitations,' he argues/'would  signify a heroic hut useless suicide  for the German fleet. The distance  from German harbors is too great  for lhe regular and frequent attacks which alone could cause  continuous interruption of Channel  traffic. A small German fleet cannot long remain in the Channel,  for submarines and mines would  reap a rich harvest among it, and,  after being cut off, it would be  compelled to accept battle with  overwhelming British forces in  unfavorable circumstances."  Even German submarines, according to their commanders,  writes Captain von Kuhlwtter in  the Berlin " Lokal Anzeiger," find  that attacking transports is especially difficult in the Channel."

Aug. 6, 1918  There are only a few days left  before the regatta and only one  scout has up to the present had  his time taken for swimming the  30 yards. Unless a sufficient number of scouts have their time taken  before the opening day of the  regatta, the scout lelay race will  be called off. We could arrange  to have the time taken practically  any time a scout can get down to  the aquatic to bathe. We are very  glad thnt we have 17 entries from  the Summerland troop for different  events at lhe regatta, chiefly in the  land sports. We trust that we  shall have as many entries from  our own troop, and we must again  ask the different leaders and seconds to give us the names of all  scouts in their patrols who are  entering for any of these eveflts.  We do not wish to have this left  until the last minute.  Scouts F. Hewetson and R. Neish  of  tbe   Eagles   both   successfully  completed the tests for their second  class badge on Saturday last.  e        a  a  The scoutmaster bad the pleasure of spending the afternoon  with the Cubs in camp at Cedar  Creek on Monday. They went to  camp on Friday, lhe 2nd, under  Cubmaster Gordon and propose  to break camp on Thursday, the  6th. Assistant master Bartholomew  went into camp the same day but  had to return Monday. Commissioner Heneage is spending lhe  whole six days at the camp.  We thought when we made our  camp this year that we had a few  troubles, but they were mild compared with what the cubs were up  against on their first day. They  also were considerably later than  ihey anticipated in reaching camp  with their equipment and supplies,  and had only got one tent up before tbe rain visited them, as  though it had been waiting specially (or them. Ther,, unfortunately,  they found that several essential  parts of their equipment had failed  lo arrive, such as shovels, axes,  mallet, rope, and tops for lhe stove.  They have from 24 to 30 cubs in  camp and have not go' the services  of a camp cook, the result being  that this pari of'lhe work falls very  heavily on Mr. Gordon. Everybody took the troubles of the first  day. however, with a smile, miracles  were worked, and to visit the camp  now one would never know what  they had been up against.  While the scoutmaster was there  he examined 12 cubs for their  swimmer's badge. The requirements for this badge are that a cub  must be able to swim 25 yards  (any stroke), be able to float on his  back for 60 seconds, be able to  take off a pair of socks in the water  (or as an.alternative swim on back  with arms folded on chest for 15  yards, be able to take a duck's  dive (viz: dive while standing in  the water or swimming), or as an  alternative perform a bone) pot  (viz: jump with arms clasped rouud  knees from a board, bank or boat).  All the cubs who tried were successful in passing, and their names are  as follows:���  Sixers Ralph Ball and Earl Wilson, cubs Elwyn Williams, Harry  Mantle, Victor Fowler, Lloyd Cunningham, Harold Cunningham,  William Akeroyd, Frank Fumerton  John Aitken, Gordon Haug and  Bartlett McCarthy.  a        a  a  One of the tests for a second-  class scout who wishes to become  a first-class scout, is that he must  train a recruit in the work for a  tenderfoot badge. All scouts in  the troop who have not yet done  this will hand in their names at  once to the scoutmaster as there  will be 6 or 7 recruits from the  cubs this Fall. We imagine that  it will not be very difficult training  because these recruits could pro  bably pass their Tenderfoot tests  immediately.

AN APOLOGY  Some of our customers have, no  doubt, been embarrassed and relented our refusal to extend credit,  even on trifling amounts. To those  whose feelings have been hurt in  this way we wish to offer our sincere apology, and take this opportunity of assuring them that our refusal to cht.rge goods was not done  because we doubted their ability to  meet their obligations.  The writer, owing to increased  furniture business, and branches  recently added, such as the manufacturing and upholstering depart -  meats, is no longer able to attend  to the routine of office work, and  we have arrived at a point where  we have either to employ e book -  keeper or sell on ��� a strictly cash  basis.  Office expenses incident to a  credit system based on our present  turnover amounts to 4 per cent. It  is not fair to charge a customer  who makes a $100 cash purchase  an additional $4 because hie neighbour wishes to have a 25c charge  sale put through the usual office  routine, nor is it fair to the country  under existing conditions to have  men so employed who might otherwise be engaged in productive pursuits. We have therefore decided  to adopt while the war lasts a  strictly cash system.  D. W. SUTHERLAND.

There are many new faces in  the cast thia season including a  most brilliant addition in the person of Babe Halcyon, who was  last seen in the west when she was  a mere tot. Many of the older  theatregoers will no doubt recall  her singing "Nobody knows my  Number" when the Bostonians first  played thia territory.
