Sutherland, chief con.'a salary - 90.00  G. McKay, night con/a aalary        - 58.70  Mr. J. B. Whitehead wrote com  plaining of charges made against  him in connection with the holding  of a refreshment booth iu the Park  on the occasion of the Orange  celebration, July 12th. The council had charged him $5 for trading  in a place other than his regular  business premises, and the Parks  Committee had charged him another $5 for the pnvilege of selling  in the Park. This double charge  he thought was too much for one  day's trading, especially as the attendance had not been so large as  anticipated and the rain had spoiled the afternoon.  The communication raised a little  discussion as to whether the Park  Committee or the council could  make charges for selling in the  park, and it was finally decided to  refer the matter to the city solicitor.  The provincial analyst submitted  a report upon a sample of the city  water which had been sent by the  council for analysis. The water he  reported to be in a very [fair condition for the time of the year, and  no trouble need be feared from  that source.  A reply was also received to the  invitation ^���. by the council to  His Royal Highnea..tne Governor-  General, to stay off at Kelowna  during his visit to the Okanagan in  October. The reply was as follows :-  The City Clerk,  Sir,���In reply to your letter of  the 12th inst. I beg now to confirm  my night letter informing you that  His Royal Highness, the Governor-  General would visit Kelowna on  October 5th, probably in the morning after leaving Penticton.  His Royal Highness's visit will  not be of a formal nature, but he  would like to have an opportunity  of meeting some of your prominent people and possibly of seeing  something of the neighborhood if  he can do so by motor. His Roval  Highness will probably stay about  an hour.  Yours faithfully,  H. C. Lowther.  Lieut-Colonel,  Military Secretary.  An application for a loan of  $1,000 from the city's, sinking fund  was granted.  Dr. Dickson, secretary of the Irrigation Convention, wrote informing the council that they were entitled to send five delegates and  asking that they be named as early  as possible.  Aid. Sutherland, Copeland, Raymer, Taylor and the Mayor were  chosen.  Mr. T. Cooper, ths city assessor  2,329,650  The school assessment, outside the  city, amounted to $379,800.   The  nontaxable property   in   the  city,  $511,600.  A resolution was passed that the  roll be received.  The possibility of adopting the  principle of the single tax, and exempting all improvements, was  mentioned, and received unanimous support.  Mr. Cooper said he believed a  great deal of trouble could be saved at the Court of Revision if the  council could state what the rate of  taxation would be. So far, he said  there had been very little kicking  about the assessment itself. Most  of th? complaints had been corrections, principally as to real owners  of lots. There was a good deal of  misunderstanding about the raising  of the assessment. Many people  did not know that the law required  this year a full assessment to be  made.  Mayor Jones said the assessor  had received instructions to place  the assessment of property as near  as possible to the real value and  that policy had been followed with  both land and improvements. He  agreed that it would be very opportune if the finance committee  could make some statement as to  the probable tax rate. Aid. Taylor, the chairman was away but he  thought the matter had been sufficiently discussed to make a general  statement.  Aid. Sutherland, on behalf of the  finance committee said that until  the Court of Revision had sat it  was impossible to fix any rate of  taxation, which would besides need  a special by-law. They could, however form some good idea of what  would be required. The rate could  be levied on land values and half  the value of improvements or on  land values alone. If they followed  the custom of previous years and  levied on land and half improvements a rate of I 7* mills would be  required, bur if land only was  taxed the rate would probably be  20 mills. Commenting upon the  raising of the assessment this year,  Aid. Sutherland said it made really  no difference to the public at all so  long as the increase was equitable  so that each bore his fair share.  The city had to raise the sum of  $45,000 for all expenses, and that  amount had to be raised whatever  the rate was. If the Court of Revision made any material reduction  in the assessment, the rate of taxa  tion would have to be increased  proportionately.  With respect to the single tax,  he said, all the Aldermen were in  favor of taxing the land only, and  it was quite likely that a rate of  20 mills would be fixed.  Mayor Jones said he had no  doubt the principle would be very  satisfactory if it could be carried  out as it would put the burden on  the owners of land only, and thus  encourage improvements in the  way of good buildings.  Conditions had changed in Kelowna during the last few years  said Aid. Sutherland. The land  had formerly been held by people  who wished to make a living from  gardens and orchards, but most of  it was now held by speculators,  and it was very desirable to make  the change of assessment to land  values.  Before withdrawing Mr. Cooper  suggested to the council the advisability of having some plan whereby any change in the ownership of  property could be registered with  the city, ln his assessment work  he had travelled many miles endeavoring to find owners of lots,  and in some cases it had been  found impossible. If registration  could be enforced it would save  endless labor.  Mr. C. C. Josselyn drew the attention of the council to the necessity of spraying certain neglected  fruit trees on vacant lots in the  city and also to the weeds which  were being allowed to grow there.  A resolution was passed without  any discussion granting to the  Board of Trade another $1,000  for publicity purposes.  A motion was also put through  Items from Ellison  (From our own correspondent)  We note that Miss Cottingham's  house is nearing completion, the  plasterers now putting the finishing  touches on. The building is an attractive one and reflects great credit  on the builder, Mr. Hay, who is one  of our people.  We are pleased to learn that all  four candidates from the Ellison  district passed the High School  entrance examinations. This signal success was undoubtedly due  to the careful tution of our late  teacher, Miss P. Raymer of Kelowna.  On Monday morning last, we  noticed one of our friend John's  patent, self propelling, quick action  potatoe diggers travelling at a high  rate of speed towards Mr. M. Her-  eron's ranch, wh^re it arrived in  time to commence work at 7 a.m.  prompt. We should be pleased to  learn how many tons to the acre  he secured.  Empire's  Burden  Still Growing  Rutland News  Fiom our own correspondent  Haying and green oat cutting  have occupied most Rutlanders  this week. The abundant rainfall  lias greatly benefitted fodder crops  ofall descriptions.  Mrs. J. Dunton and family left  for their home in Vancouver on  Wednesday morning to the great  regret of Mr. A. E. Clark with  whom they have been staying.  The Fleming household had a  very unwelcome visitor last week I  three of the inmates being down  with measles. Their friends hope  that this visitation will speedily end.  Moving Extraordinary  The stranger in our midst might  have been forgiven for wondering  as to the cause of the commotion  in town last night. Two stores at  least were brilliantly lighted and in  each a small army of busy workers  were ripping, tearing, lifting and  shouting in a manner unusual in  our quiet burgh. It was the McKenzie Co. moving the stock and  fixtures from Lawson's grocery  department to their new quarters  in the furniture store. It was certainly a quick transition. At 6  o'clock business ceased in Lawson's  grocery department as usual and  before midnight the stock had  been taken from the shelves, counters, shelving, scaled, showcases,  and everything which went to make  up that part of the store were  moved and reerected in the east  half of the furniture store, which  had (itself earlier in the day been  slocked with furniture. Workers  were plentiful and the busy good  humor of the new boss pervaded  everybody.  At 8 o'clock this morning The  McKenzie Co. were ready for business, almost as if nothing had happened. Slick ?  Well, I should say I  Winston Spenser Churchill, first  lord of ihe admiralty, in introducing  the supplementry naval appropriation of five million dollars in the  House of Commons last week said  the direct cause of the increase in  expenditure in the British navy was  to be found in the new German  navy law, the main feature of which  was the increase in the striking  force of ships of all classes. The  effect of the new German navy law  would; he said, be that nearly four-  fifths of the entire German navy  would be maintained in full permanent commission, and instantly  ready for war. The first lord continued :  " Such preparation is remarkable  and as far as I am aware, finds no  example in the previous practice of  modern naval politics."  Mr. Churchill then announced  the shipbuilding program for the  next five years, saying that five battleships were to be constructed next  vear and four in each of the following years.  Under the new German law, Mr.  Churchill said, the ultimate scale of  the German fleet would be 41 battleships, 20 large armored cruisers,  40 small cruisers and smaller craft  in proportion. "That will be an  extremely formidable fleet, and the  only way to meet it is by cool and  methodical preparation, prolonged  over successive years.  " There is no use flinging money  about on the impulse of the moment," the first lord continued. "The  strain which Great Britain will have  to bear will be long and slow, and  no relief can be gained by impulsive or erratic action. We should  lsarn from our German neighbors  the way of the policy which marches  unswervingly to its goal."  Athleti  A big consignment of steam  shovels, dump wagons, scrapers  and other railroad plant arrived in  Kelowna this week, part of a shipment of ten car-loads intended for  use in the construction of the Kettle Valley railway to the south.  They are to be hauled out by  teams up to the headquarters at  Mission Creek, about five miles  beyond the South Kelowna Land  Co.'s dam, which is the nearest  point on the loop which will bring  the K. V. Ry. very near to Kelowna on the hills to the south, The  great steam shovel is being taken  apart and will be hauled in sections.

Marriage  BELL-HARRIS  On  July   27th,  at  St.   Michael's church,  "ohn William Bell, to Elsie, daughter of  William Harris, of Hackney, England.  rescinding one passed at a former  meeting offering gravel for sale  from the city pit. It had been  decided to reserve it all for city  purposes.  The meeting then adjourned.  cs  The Upper and Lower Town  Juniors for the second time this  season took up their sticks in friendly combat Thursday last. The Upper Town being unable to put a  full team on the field Lower Town  was obliged to put off one man,  the game proceeding with only  eleven players. The lineup was  as follows:--  Lower Town  Upper Town  D. McMillan  Goal  Bruce  W. Fuller  Point  R. Ritchie  E. McLennan  C. Point  B. Raymer  G. Kincaid  Ist Defence  C. Knight  W. Wilson  2nd     ���  J. Carney     3Jd    ,.  W. Philp  A. Brown  Centre  Raid  A. Weddell  3rd Home  C. McPhee  R. Bouvette  2nd    ���  G. Curts  B. Fletcher  1st     ���  R. McGee  R. Sutherland  Out. ���     W. Raymer  In     ���  V. DeHarl  Both teams played different men  to those in the previous game,  whilst a "far." from the coast graced the centre of the Upper Town  team. The game which was refer-  eed by Mr. Trench proved to be  very even, but inclined to be rough,  and terminated in favor of the  Lower Town team by a well earned 5 to 2. We understand that  there is no junior league this year,  which is to be regretted. However, the Lower Town boys seem  to be the better term, having won  both matches by good margins.  As it is the junior players who  will eventually make up the senior  team, it is a pity that the public,  and especially the senior team,  does not take a little moie Interest  in these games.  The senior league match scheduled for last week between Kelow-  and Armstrong had lo be called off  owing to the inability of the local  boys to reach Armslrong on account of the bad roads caused by  the heavy rains. According to  rules Armstrong were allowed the  point, but referee Rhinheart of  Vernon decided that the match be  called off, to be played at the end  of the season.  The war-canoe crew seems to be  unable to do enough as regards  training, and some capital practice  runs are being made. As Peachland intend to strain every nerve  to " lift the cup " this yea', some  good racing should be witi eased at  the regatta.  The Emporer of Jap. n died  Tuesday at his palace at Tokio.  Accommodation Still  Needed for Convention Delegates  Dr. Dickson, the local secretary  of the Irrigation Convention to be  held here on August I3lh to Kith,  returned yesterday from Calgary  where he has been in conference  with the executive of the Western  Canada Irrigation Association and  with the secretary of lhat organization Mr. Norman S. Rankine. Final  details as to the holding of the  convention were discussed.  The convention, it might be  stated, is attracting wider attention  in all parts of the West than is  generally realized by the people  here. Irrigation is a subject which  vitally affects a large section of  both Alberta and British Columbia,  indeed the prosperity of a large  part of the West is wrapped up in  it. The influence of the Western  Canada Irrigation Association, under whose auspices the convention  is to be held, has been steadily  growing during the few years of  its existence and it now includes  in its ranks some of the foremost  men of affairs in the two provinces.  As a further assurance of the  success of the convention it may  be noted that in addition to the  grant made by the B.C. government, the Dominion government  has arranged for a substantia!  annual grant to the Association.  Owing to the fact that the dates  of the convention conflict with the  Vancouver Exhibition, the coast  city has approached the executive  to have the convention transferred  there. Fortunately, however, fur  Kelowna at this late date this is  impossible.  There is one thing which should  be noted. 1 he chief difficulty so  far as Kelowna is concerned is the  housing of the delegates whose  numbers it seems will likely be  much larger than was at first anticipated. Most of the billeting will  be done i..' private houses and  although through the activity of  the secretary a large amount of  accommodation has been promised  there is still need for further help  in this direction, and those who  can possibly spare sleeping room  for one or more delegates for the  nights of the convention are asked  to communicate with Dr. Dickson  without delay.  McDougall's Sentence  Commuted to Life  Imprisonment  James to Suffer Death Penalty  I The cases of Albert McDougall,  the half-breed who shot Mb cousin  Dave at Westbank, and Jam08, the  hold-up man who shot Constable  Anion on the s.s. 'Okanagan/' and  who- were sentenced to death ut  llie last Vernon assizes, have been  brought in the ordinary course  before tbe Governor General,  H.R.H. the Duke of Connaught.  Ihe sentence of McDougall has  been commuted lo one of imprisonment for life, there being it was  considered certain extenuating circumstances. Both the murderer  and his victim were under (he  influence of drink at the time, the  murder being largely the result of  a drunken brawl.  The case brings out into strong  relief the evils of supplying Indians  with liquor, ant! it is to be regretted that the law does not provide  for severer punishment in such  cases.  James, however, will have to  undergo the extreme penalty for  his brutal crime, the date of execution being fixed for August 9ih.  The Rev. Thos. Greene will hold  8 service in the K. L. O. Bench  school house on Senday next at 3  o'clock.  Mr. Neil Gregory returned on  Saturday from a trip to Victoria  where he was the guest of Senator  MacDonald and Mr. F. Wolrige.  Rev.

The Control of Insect Pesta  In Canada  The division of entomology of ihe  Experimental Farms Branch ol the  Dominion Department of Agriculture, Ottawa has recently issued a  bulletin by Dr. C. Gordon Hewitt,  Dominion Entomologist) on " Ihe  Control of Insect Pests in Canada."  An account is given of the history of the war against insect pests  in Canada, and of the manner in  which insect pests have invaded  the country as it has been gradual'  ly opened up and cultivated. The  manner in which Dominion  and Provincial governments are  endeavoring by legislation and  other means to prevent the introduction of ins^rl pp<*Ts into Canada, and the increase ami spicad  oi those pests already here is described. An interesting summary  ol ihe various lines of work undertaken and carried on by the division of entomology at Ottawa is  given and the general public will  no doubt be surprised at the many  problems which conic within ihe  scope of the entomologists who are  called upon to deal with insects in  their relation to all the varied activities or man; insects affecting  farm crops, fruil growing, forest  and shade trees ; insests attacking  mans possessions and infesting  houses, attacking domestic animals, and finally affecting the health  of man. All insects, however, are  not injurious and llie work ol the  entomologist includes bees and  b^e-keeping, and ihe study of  parasitic and other enemies wliich  may be of assistance in obtaining  control of insect pests.  Copies of this publication, Bulletin No. 9 (second series) may be  obtained from the Publications  Branch, Department of Agriculture,  Ottawa.  Label Your Fruit  Most fruit requires a label on  the jar not as information to you  that they're preserves, so to speak,  but as a precautionary measure  against those occasions when tlie  man of the house goes on a morning hunt for his favorite toast  relish, at which times he is quite  liable to leave a trail of seven or  more opened sealers behind htm  before he locales the grape jelly.  Labels stick best while the bottles are still hot, so it is well to  keep paste handv. Our mothers  were accustomed to quite recklessly use while of egg for this purpose,  but nowadays when "eggs is eggs"  we can't afford such an extravagance. There is nothing to equal  photographers paste for cheapness  nnd excellence as everyone knows  who kodaks and mounts their pictures.  Warm a cup, drop into it some  lumps of laundry starch, soften  them with a little luke warm water,  then add rather slo'vly just enough  boiling water to cook the itnrch  in 'i paste. This can be kept handy  and used [or months.  If labels are written with indelible pencil they become plainer  wilh dampness instead of binning  as ink is apt to do. Write them  all at once on a sheet of note  paper and cut ihem off as needed  Black currants are probably the  only fruil to which water must be  added iu making jelly as the juice  in too thick to strain otherwise.  Good Currant Wine can be  made from the jelly pulp. Turn  it bat k into the preserving kettle,  cover well wilh water and boil  twenty minutes, keeping it well  stirred to prevent burning. Strain  through cheesecloth and add one  cup of sugar to each pint of liquid.  Boil again, then put way in tightly  corked bottles.  The timber department of the  provincial government have issued  an entirely new system of private  marking for lumbermen and are  cancelling the old marks as fast as  tbe new marks are given out. The  new system is designed to render  less difficult the task of distinguishing the logs cut on licenses, leases,  crown grants, 6tc, and to show  which logs are eligible for export  and which are not.

Prompt attention and careful  work.  System of   Fruit  Inspection  Reorganised  Arrangements were made some  time ago under the direction of  Hon. Martin Burrell, minister of  agriculture, for the reorganization  of the inspection of fruit all over  the Dominion. Operations under  the Fruit Marks Act have hitherto  been directed toward the inspection of Canadian grown fruit intended for export. By legislation  the grading and marking of closed  fruit packages were standardized.  On the other hand the fruitgrowers  in the United States were under no  such handicap. They could enter  the Canadian market, under easier  conditions than the home grower.  It is to remove this unfairness that  Mr. Burrell is directing his attention. The staff of inspectors will  be increased largely and there is  to be a chief inspector in each  province.  The duty of the inspectors will  be to see that no inferior fruit is  allowed to enter Canada, thus not  only safeguarding the Canadian  consumer but putting the Canadian  grower on the same plane as his  foreign rivals.  Suggested Nationalization of  Medicine in England  The nationalization of medecine  is suggested in England as a possible outcome of the doctors revolt  against the Lloyd George National  Insurance act. Dr. Rentoul outlined before the British Medical Association at Liverpool, a scheme  for a public medical service, organized, worked and controlled by  doctors. He said he thought that  the government should make the  employment of all doctors a branch  of the civil service, adding that the  nationalization of medicine was  not so far off as some thought.  There is a serious shortage of  potatoes reported from Edmonton.  Two thousand men have gone on  strike on the G.T.P. between Hazel-  ton and Burns Lake B. C.  Hon. P. Ellison has been suffering from a slight attack of appendicitis in Vancouver, but has now recovered and is taking a rest.  The pay roll of the British Columbia division of the Canadian  Pacific Railway during the last  month amounted to $640,000.  The strike at the London docks  which started in May and has  caused about 50,000 dockworkers  and their families to live in semi-  starvation for ten weeks is ended.  Work was resumed Monday.  The first oil-burning locomotive  to enter the Okanagan Valley was  attached to the south bound passenger train last week and will run  regularly hereafter. The C. P. R.  is converting as rapidly as possible  all the locomotives on the mountain section into oil burners.  The Canada gazette contains notice of prorogation of parliament  until August 31. As there is no  possibility of the house meeting  before November, the notice is certain to appear, at least once more  before the date of the sitting is definitely fixed.  British Columbia is the only country that is free from the codling  moth, according to inspector Cunningham' and our is determined  that it shall be kept free. A staff  of inspectors costing $2,000 per  month is maintained, and last year  some 56,000 boxes of apples were  either destroyed or sent back to  the point of shipment.  Regina, Sask., July 25.- Dr. W.  H. Gaddes and family have arrived here, having motored all the  way from British Columbia. He  draws attention to the fact that  British Columbia roads are much  better than those in Alberta and  Saskatchewan, and sees need for  the great improvement on the  prairies.  The British government is seriously considering criminal proceedings against the persons who  are believed to be conducting the  suffragettee campaign of violance  against the cabnet ministers.

This is their first visit to the  Okanagan Valley, and they do not  fail to express their delight at all  they have seen during their stay  here.  A surprise party gathered at the  home of Mr. J. A. Machickan on  the old Vernon road on Saturday  evening, and a most enjoyable time  was spent. Mr. and Mrs. Machickan and family expect to leave  shortly for the coast, and their  friends took this means of showing  the esteem in which they held  them, and of bidding them farewell.  Mr. and Mrs. Perrett, of Fort  William, were guests at the Grand  View Hotel for a few days. Mr.  Perrett has purchased the Biggar  and Gray lot on top of the hill  adjoining the Rainbow ranch. It  is Mr. and Mrs. Perrett's intention  to return next spring, erect a residence, and live on their newly-  acquired property. They will live  at Vernon in the meantime, where  Mr. Perrett is at present working.  Mr. Fleetwood Wilson, who  lately acquired the old McAlla  property ot Carr's Landing ia going  extensively into hog raising, for  which he is making elaborate preparations. A large portion of the  property is being divided off into  20 acre sections and each one  fenced to permit of a constant  change of pasture. Up-to-date  housing accommodation for a very  large number of the porcine tribe  is well in hand, the construction  work being carried out by Messrs.  Gleed &t Hare, building contractors. Mr. Wilson is also having installed a domestic and irrigation  pumping plant which will cost  $10,000.  Frank Rayburn, orchardist for  the Okanagan Valley Land Co.,  was down at Summerland and  Naramata last week assisting provincial orchard inspector Cunningham to inspect the orchards for  fire blight, or as formerly termed,  pear blight. This infectious disease seems more prevalent this  year than any previous year, and  the government inspectors are doing all in their power to prevent  this blight from spreading. Bearing  orchards seem to suffer most from  this disease. So far horticulturists  seem to be unable to discover the  cause ot the fire blight, which  makes it so much the harder to  combat. It is commendable on the  part of the provincial government  tnat they are doing all that lies in  their power to find out the cause  of and the best means to eradicate  these orchard pests, and we trust  the orchardists themselves will be  keenly alive to the need of protecting their own fruit trees.
