Municipal  Election  Results  Plebiscite Decide* Against a  Hotel in Park  There seems to have been a  great reluctance to take up the  duties of the council this year, and  Nomination Day produced no  fresh candidate* other than those  who had been announced at the  public meeting. Mayor Jones was  unopposed for another year of that  office, and there was Ho election  in the North Ward; Aid. D. W.  Sutherland and S. C. Cosens being  returned unopposed.  The following is a summary of  the polling which took place today:  For Mayor;  JONES. J. W by acclam.  NorthWard:  SUTHERLAND. D. W., by acclam.  COSENS, S.C by acclam.  South Ward:  COPELAND. R. A 126-elect.  THOMPSON. J. N 120-elect.  CALDER, W. B. M I M���elect.  TAYlORjEiA, 110-elect.  Millie, KH^?.  63  The Hotel Question  The voting on the question of  the hotel on the lake shore was  decisive enough to leave no doubt  as to the opinion of the electors  on the three questions propounded. The voting, although it had  been referred to a*.�� " plebiscite "  waa not-such, in a legal s��nae, but  only an effort on the part of the  council, in response to a request  from the Board of Trade, to find  out fhe feeling of the people on  the scheme, before taking more  definite steps, which would have  meant a special bill before the legislature to acquire power to dispose of publie property for such a  purpose. .  The result of the vote was ���*  follow*:  QUESTION No. I.���Ar* you in  favor of a hotel being erected on  the property of the People's Trust  Company at the entrance to the  park?  YES 56.   NO 122.  QUESTION No. 2.-Are you in  favor of th* city exchanging the  triangular parcel of land now held  by tha People'* Trust Company for  an equal amount of land in a rectangular form >  YES 61.  NO 115.  QUESTION No. 3.���Are you in  favor of the city telling a portion  of the City Park for hotel purposes)  YES 46.   NO 129.  Th* total poll recorded on the  matter from both ward* wa* 191.  An unusual feature of th* election  wa* that there were no spoilt ballot*.  The Kelowna Merchant* Aocia-  tion held it* adjourned annual  meeting on Tuesday when officers  were elected as follows:  Pres.'���Geo. A. Meikle.  Vice-Pres.���K. F. Oxley.  Sec.-Treas.--G. A.

Annual Meeting of  Council and Citizens  City'* Lett Year'*.Record Waa One of Marked  Progress and Development  There wa* a fairly large attend-  enqe at the annual meeting of  ratepayers last Friday evening  when the mayor and aldermen  met the the citixens in the customary way to give an account of the  year's wprk. Mr. D. Leckie took  the chair.  Aid. Blackwood chairman of the  Park* committee should have been  the first to address the meeting,  but from ill-health he waa unable  to be present.  Aid. Raymer said it was not his  intention to make a speech. He  would like however to thank the  electors for the magnificent vote  they gave him at the last election.  Although he had been unable to  canvas in any way he had had the  highest vote of all. He was not  running for office thia year as he  found it took more time than he  could spare,and he wished to keep  himself free for other duties.  There was an expectant hush as  Aid. Millie advanced to the plat-  for all felt that the temperature of  the meeting would go up at once.  He disclaimed, however, any intention to make a speech, and regretted that the mayor had not  seen fit to speak first as he would  have liked to hear him explain the  financial statement, which, he understood, had only been out a few  minutes.  Referring to the Fire Protection  and Building's Committee of which  be had been chairman, he said he  W*l pleased to note that there had  been one-third less fires during the  year, and the council had also  ���pent less on fire protection, the  actual amount being $66236. He  referred to the neglect of the fire  engine, which had been left out  unprotected from the weather during hia visit to the Old Country,  thereby causing a depreciation  which he estimated to be not  less than $500 or $600. He had  seen that the engine was placed  under cover when he got back,  but the Light and Water committee  had thrown it out again.  Coming to his work on the Light  and Water committee, he said that  one of his statement* as a candidate last year waa that he would  reduce the cost of electric light.  Aid. Sutherland and he had given  that reduction, and still had a large  surplus. If he was elected this  year he would give a still further  reduction, as he did not believe in  the council getting too much profit  from the undertaking.  Thi* year'* council, continued  Aid. Millie, were taking a plebiscite  on the question of a hotel iu the  Park. There was no doubt that a  hotel wa* badlv needed, but as to  where it wa* to be located was  another proposition. Some thought  it should be in the park, some  otherwise. If the plebiscite decided for the park he would vote for  the park, but if went against it, he  would vote against it. He would  be guided entirely by the wish of  th* people.  Some of hi* suggestions of last  year had not been carried out, instancing hi* proposal to regulate  by by-law the sale of wood and  food. If elected he would be  strongly in favor of a plumbing  by-law, a* were in danger of having an insanitary to.vn in spite of  the sewerage if the plumbing was  not done right.  The city wa* going pretty strong  in its expenditure on sewerage,  whioh was costing a great deal  more than the original estimates.  Still, they couldn't help it. The  citv must have a sewerage systen.  anyway.  Some people had called him a  kicker in the council. He certainly had kicked when he had seen a  reason. He had been independent, and no matter how big a corporation had come to him he had  opposed it if it was in the wrong.  He made reference to his large  interests in the town and expressed  his faith in Kelowna'a future, looking forward to a great time for  1913, He was going to be a candidate again this year and asked  for support at the election.    He  was sorry to see Aid. Raymer  dropping out this year as he had  been an invaluable member.  The chairman then called upon  Aid. Copeland. Mr. Leckie referred to the action of the Business  Men's Association who had interviewed a number of men with a  view to inducing them to become  candidates for the city council.  Aid. Copeland, he understood,  had been so asked and had consented to stand for a further term.  Aid. Copeland admitted that he  had been induced by several of  the business men to stand again  for the south ward. He had been  alderman for two years and had  the honor of working on several  important committees. Last year  he had been chairman of the Parks  committee and been on the Fire  and Buildings Committee. This  year he had had charge of the  Board of Works and alao been  connected with the Building committee,  The Board of Works was one of  the most important and exacting  committees in the council, and its  duties were increasing rapidly  every year. There had been  scarcely a meeting of the council  when there had not been one or  two subdivision plans to consider.  Nine miles of new streets had been  added thia year, making over forty  miles. .  (He recalled the deplorably muddy state of the streets last spring  due to the heavy snowfall and  ruin. The first thing the committee  had done was to search for some  better material than the shale rock  which had been used, but though  they had travelled up and down  the Jake they had been unable to  find rock in sufficient quantity to  make it worth while taking hold  of it.  In Mr. Ashbridge's report on the  sewerage scheme, the presence of  beds of gravel at the aewage  farm had been mentioned. Teat  pit* had been sunk and gravel  beds found which the city was  very fortunate in possessing.  The committee had often met,  continued Aid.'Copeland, to discuss the proper method of handling street work and as chairman  he had stood out for the plan of  not spending one dollar on a street  until it had been properly graded.  On almost every strict on which  anything had been done a profile  had been obtained and a proper  grade eatablished.  This year more money had been  spent on streets that in any previous year, and there would be  more from now on. The work had  been confined chiefly to a few  streets, in the belief that it waa  better to put the main thoroughfares into ahape so that farmers  could get their produce into town.  Water atreet, Ellis street Gaston  and Smith avenues had received  most attention, Ellis street had  taken a large amount of material  owing to its being very uneven.  The greater part of the gravelling  this year had been done on the  north side of town. With the  assistance ot Aid. Taylor, the  council had managed to get Pendozi atreet widened, and to-day it  was a very creditable street. Harvey avenue had been graded and  fixed as an alternative route into  town to Bernard avenue. He regretted that funds had not permitted the finishing of Glenn avenue,  which, however, had been left  partly to allow the sewer to go in  first.  During the spring a great deal  of work had been done on the  north side in draining the streets.  It had been necessary to dig aeveral ditchea and put in a lot of tile  drains and culverts which would  not be necessaay another year.  At the last municipal meeting  he had expressed himself as in  favor of a paid commissioner to  look after public works and he  had not changed his views since  then. The city had got to the size  when it should have a paid man  responsible for the work, and he  felt sure that a man with experi  ence would more than save hia  wages. Such a commissioner  would carry out the orders of the  council. The work was altogether  more than aldermen could be expected to do. The day had gone  by when men went into the council for the honor of the thing, and  the city could not expect to get  the best men on that body unless  they had someone to take some of  the burden of detail work from  their shoulders.  He referred in appreciative  terms to the work of the Fire  Brigade boys and the efficient  service they rendered to the city-  If elected for another year he  pledged himself to do his very  best for the town. Kelowna would  go ahead during the next year  or two, and they muat get busy  and work together in the right  spirit, taking advantage of what  nature had done to make this one  of the best cities in B.C.  He was in favor of having a  city hall. The time had come  when the city should have a build,  ing of its own with a vault in  which could be atored the many  valuable papers which had accum  ulated, the loss of which by fire  would be a serious inconvenience  to the city. They were not paying  much rent for offices but it would  pay interest and sinking fund on a  considerable sum of money.  The work of the council this  year had been rendered pleasant  by the agreeable co-operation of  the members. Mavor Jones had  been ready to help at all times,  and Aid. Sutherland's knowledge  of municipal matters had been  invaluable. He was sorry that Aid.  Raymer, who had been a moat  useful member, had found it necessary to withdraw. He thanked the  public for their support in the paat  and left the result of the coming  election in their hands.  Following some remarks of the  chairman, Aid. Copeland rose to  his feet again to give the following  figures. During the year $11,718  had been spent on atreet work,  $1,782 on new streets. Some 12,-  000 yards of gravel had been put  on at less cost than previous years  less than 75c per yard.  Aid. Taylor, chairman of the  finance committee, waa next in  order, but declined to make any  formal speech, his few remarks being more or leas in a jocular vein.  He said the council had been  hampered at one time by shortness  of money, but the banks had come  forward all right now. Some of  the aldermen had been worried  over the atate of affairs, but he believed the banks had worried more,  (laughter)  He believed he was going to  stand again for alderman, but he  waa not particularly anxioua for  the job. There waa a good deal  of honor and glory to be got, of  course, but a great deal of work  besides.  Aid. D. W. Sutherland said that  last year when he addressed the  annual meeting on a matter relating to the adminatration of justice  he had been very much misunderstood. He was now going to speak  on the aubject of water, but he did  not want any gentlemen addicted  to drink to think he was making  pointed reference to him. Such a  misunderstanding he said would  be just as unreasonable as the construction which was placed upon  his words last year.  Dealing first with the electric  ight department, Aid. Sutherland  said they started the year with 303  connections. During the twelve  month* 110 were added, an increase of 35 per cent, making a  total oj 413 connections. To make  these additional connections over  66.000 or Hi miles of wire had  been strung.  The water connections at the  beginning of the year were 217.  New connectiona numbered 167,  an increase of about 80 per cent.  20,487 feet of wood pipe were  used in these extensions, 5300 six  inch and 15,187 four-inch. Two-  thirds of this four miles of pipe  was laid in the north ward. The  water department had 31,000 feet  of pipe at the beginning of the  vear and the addition of 20,487  feet brought the total pipe laid to  roughly ten miles.  Following the practice of the last  two or three years the rates had  been reduced, and thia policv was  likely to be continued as every ex-  tenaion to the systems meant increased revenue,   The total rev.  enue for tho year from electric  light and power had been $18,-  219.84; from water, $6,268.30.  Even after reducing the rate a surplus of $2,768 was shown from the  combined plants (applause). Last  year's surplus was $2,100. Ihe  surplus was not over running expenses only, but after all interest  and sinking fund on debenture*  and all capital expenditures and a  reasonable amount for depreciation had been deducted. The total  value of the water and light plant  was $97,000, and the intereat find  sinking fund amounted to $6,862  annually and this amount had to  be paid befoie profit was figured.  As to the future, said Aid. Sutherland, some notes -might be interesting. The only addition which .  would be necessary next year at  the power hand would be a new  boiler which would' cost about  $2,000. The plant wbuld then be  large enough to supply the cily  with water, light and power lor  eighteen months or two yeara. By  that time a number of Diessel engines would probably be in operation in the district and the  committee would be able to judge  aa to their efficiency. A likely  addition to the water system would  be a reservoir into which a supply .  could be pumped during the light  load at night.  It was probable that the committee would recommend a further reduction in the light rale at  the beginning of the year, possibly  leducingitto 12 cents.  The following statistics showing  the city's financial progress since  incorporation were then thrown  upon the screen:  Growth of Assessment:  1906-$  353,710 I9I0-$I,3 76,963  1907- 528,965 1911- 1.413,580  1908- 905,015 1912- 3,320,425  1909- 1,048,610  Rale of Taxation:  1906-16$ mill*   1610-I9J..mlHeY  .190.7-15    ;,������,'" I9ll^f��r ,.' ���"  I908-I6i   ��� '    1912-181   ..  1909-271   ���  Before 1912 the value had been  levied on land and half the value  of improvements, but during the  paat year improvements had not  been taxed at all. Had the council followed the method of former  yeara the rate might have been  placed at two mills leas.

I  in 1909, for park and power house.  Lust ye.ir the principal borrowings  had been for sewerage, school site  and new building, and extension  of water and light. I'he amount  given did not include money borrowed for sidewalks under the  Local Improvement By-law, which  i ame under a special fund.  The following comparative statement of school expenditures was  omitted from the slides shown but  may De given here. It includes  maintenance expense and interest,  and sinking fund on debentures :  105 $   732      1909 $ 7,220  1906 2,895      1910     8,827  1907 4,097      1911     11,012  1908 7.035      1912    16,769  Mayor Jones was the nextspeak-  er. He was pleased to see the  evidences ol interest in the council's work in the large crowd of  eitizens who had turned out to the  meeting. 1 he past year had been  a busy one, busier than any previous year in the history of the city.  In addition to frequent meetings of  the council the committees had  often met two or three times a day.  If the general public bad any idea  of the immense amount of work  involved in the duties of aldermen  there would be far less criticism,  and as the city grew more and  more time would have to be devoted to the work. Kelowna was  just at the difficult stage of emerging from the stale of a little village  and endeavoring to put on city  clothes. Practically half the time  of the aldermen and more than  half the time of the mayor was  given up to city work.  He briefly reviewed the events  of the year, mentioning the Irrigation convention and the visit of  the Duke of Connaught. in connection with the former the Mayor  especially commended the valuable  publicity work carried out by Dr.  Dickson.  Referring to the work of the  Parks committee he regretted the  continued illness of Aid. Blackwood and hoped his health would  soon show improvement. There  hid been $2,038 spent on the park  during th-? past year. Amongst  other work a space of four acres  had been cleared and levelled and  when seeded down would from  its beautiful view of the lake be  one of the finest playgrounds in  the province. The committee had  kept a man employed during the  year attending to the walks and  flower beds Next year he would  like to see a much larger amount  spent In clearing up some of the  sloughs so that the public could  get full benefit from the park. If  the council could get the power  he would like to see a substantial  sum of money borrowed for the  purpose. It waa the purpose of  the council to enlarge the cemetery  without del.iv as land adjoining  was being subdivided and sold at  high prices. He was pleased also  lo announce that the Kelowna Irrigation Co. had offered tu furnish  fiee of charge water (or the cemetery so that people could plant  flowers and beautify the graves.  1 le paid a high compliment to  the efficiency of the Fire Brigade  under the splendid managership of  ("hie! Jenkins. He did not know  where a better body could be  found than we had in Kelowna.  The citv had spent comparatively  small amount thia year on fire protection, but he hinted that it might  soon be necessary to provide an  auto truck for the use of the brigade.  The fire and building by-law  w is being revised, and a number  of improvements made and little  inconveniences removed. When  completed contractors would be  supplied with copies.  The building permits for the  year made a very good showing  being equal to those of Nelson, a  citv three times the size of Kelowna.  They would reach over $300,000,  or -villi Woodl.iwi. and Bankhead  about $350,000.  He reviewed the work of the  Board of Trade to whom great  credit was due for the splendid  manner in which they had handled  the streets during the year. The  head of that department had a  hard task owing to the large  amount of streets and the rate at  which new ones were being added.  During 1912 350 acres of the town-  site had been subdivided into  some 2,000 lots, most of which  were sold.  Owing to the state of the money  market the permanent work on the  main streets had not been done,  and would have to be taken up  again in the future. The speaker  referred to the difficulties in financing this year, comparing the prices  at which bonds sold at the beginning of the year with the offers  made now.  Mention was made of the change  in the system of taxation, and the  loaning of the city's sinking fund.  $12,500 had been loaned at 8 per  cent, instead of the 4 per cent,  which the banks gave.  The mayor then dealt at some  length with the sewerage undertaking and the various causes  which had contributed to the  heavy expenditure. $75,000 in all  had been voted to the council for  sewerage purposes.  To the first of the year $49,000  had been spent and since then  about $2,000 more. This included  pumping station $13,248, force  main, 8,800 feet, $4,621, 1,925  feet main sewer, $30,985 ; on the  disposal plant to date, $207, and  tents, $34.  Since then $2,000 more had  been spent. $15,000 would be  necessary for the disposal works.  The total cost of the works to  be paid for by ths city would be  about $68,000. Of this half had  been spent in purchase of maleral  and plant, of which there was on  hand plant to the value of $11,-  214. The rest, $32,420, had gone  in wages of which the greater  part had been circulated in the  city.  The branch sewers in course of  construction were to be paid for  by the owners themselves as local  improvements.  A great deal depended upon the  financial situation during the next  year, but the council would have a  very progressive programme to  carry out. The city should have,  if possible, a publicity commis-  oner to keep the outside world  posted as to what was going on  here. It was also absolutely necessary that some kind of decent  municipal officesshould be erected.  His Worship concluded by stating that he had consented to run  once more for mavor an announcement which was received with loud  applause.  On the conclusion of the mayor's  remarks the audience began to  drift away, but still a good number  remained to hear thc candidates  for the new council and the report  on school matters from the Chairman of Trustees, Mr. T. Lawson  Messrs. W. B. M. Calder and  J. N. Thompson announced that  they had consented to the request  of the Business Men's Association  to allow their names to stand as  candidates. Mr. S. C. Cosens,  another candidate, was found to  have beaten a hasty retreat to avoid  speech making. ,  Mr. Neil Gregory also announced his intention to stand.  Soma criticism waa levelled hy Mr.  G. C. Rose against what he deacribed a.  the hole and corner method, of the Business Men's Aaaociation in setting out men  to run without giving eufTicienl publicity  to the matter. He complained thet the  Association wa. not a roprreetitative body.  The chairman, Mr. Lackls, .aid there  had been no secrecy about the matter and  he considered the Association had done  a public service in getting together a good  lilt of men when it acemed likely that  there would be aome difficulty in getting  e council together.  Mr. Thoa. Lawaon, eheirmen of the  school trusters, eddreaaed the meeting in  his uauel breezy manner on school mat.  ter..

They had now a staff of eight teechera  in the Public School end two in the High  School, and were amongst the most effici-  ent in B. C.  Recently Kelowna had been raiaed from  a third class to e second claaa Softool-Jdist.  rict. Thia waa an honor which did more  harm than good however, aa they got leaa  grant from the government towards the  teachers salaries.  It meant alao amongat other thing, thet  they must have 6ve truateea instead of  three as before. Mr. Trench waa retiring  this year, but had consented to aland egein  end the new cendidatea Mr. Bigger and  Mr. J. B. Knowles had promised to come  forwerd.  Thia concluded the business of the meet,  ing end a voteof thanks waa proposed to  the chairman. Mr. F. R. E.

Mr. P. DuMoulin afterward, proposed a  vote of thanks to the retiring-council and  the meeting dispersed.  Steamboating  E. E. HANKINSON, Kelowna, B.C.  Residence 'Phone i No. 103  OLD C.P.R.

Stuart-White's  all star English company, "The  Versatiles," who appear at the Kelowna Opera House on Tuesday  day and Wednesday, January 21st  and 22nd, is n comedian of the  new school. Unlike many so-( ailed comedians, who depend largely  upon eccentric make-up to get  their laughs, Mr. Hoyland scorns  such artifices and in his Pierrot  costume of the first act, or his character of the club leader in the  musical comedy scene, " The Eye-  Glass Club," which forms the last  half of the evening's entertainment  he manages to extricate more clean  comedy and hearty laughs than  could be garnered by a whole  stage full of burlesque comedians.  The company will give a change  of play on Wednesday evening.  In commenting upon the performance of the "Versatiles" who  appeared in Calgary the last week  in October, the Calgary Daily Herald, of October 29th, paid them  the following compliment: "The  duet from ' II Trovatore,' 'Miserere'  by Miss Berryman and Mr. Conley  was immense. We have had grand  opera in Calgary quite recently,  but laat night's artists put the grand  opera stars in the shade as far as  the 'Mis:rcre' duet is concerned.  The ' Versatiles ' are a clever company and their singing will carry  them through any entertainment.  In ' The Eye Glass Club' the second part of the entertainment,  there was a greater apparent sequence to the occasion, and for  this reason it was more heartily  applauded. Certainly the audience took every advantage of its  prerogatives and was vety insistent in its demand for encores. Not  a single number was allowed to  finish without a repetition. Miss  Zara Clinton's 'Call Me Mary ''was  a very captivating piece of work,  (t was full of essential charm that  a song like 'Mary' demands. The  pecularities of the different nations  were prettily hit off, and the picture  was strengthened with appropriate  gesture."  The " Versatiles " are billed to  appear at the Opera House on  Tuesday and Wednesday, January  21 and 22 in "The Eye Glass  Club." There will be an entire  change of programme on Wednesday evening.

Dear Sir,���I should esteem it a  favour if you would kindly allow  me to use the medium of your  paper to bring before those interested the idea of forming a centre  ef the B.C. St. John's Ambulance  Society in the city. It is scarcely  necessary for me to dilate on the  great advantage of possessing the  accurate information conveyed by  the doctors who act at instructors  for the first aid certificates. In a  country like thit where accident!  are constantly happening it it  specially useful.  Classes for both tezes will be  formed, limited in number, from  the cadet corps, boy scouts, and  from other organisations in town.  Any further information will be  gladly given to those who would  like to join the classes.  Yours truly,  J. B. WHITEHEAD.
