SS���9SJBBEE  $1 JO Per  Kelowna's Eighth Jiual Regatta  Under Glorious Weather Conditions Big Aquatic Event is  , Carried Through Successfully  I  FAMOUS BRITISH GENERAL  MADE WAR MINISTER  Want Continuous Service to Eliminate Fire and  .    Other Risks  That the people of Kelowna are far  irom satisfied with the present telephone arrangements was evident at a  special meeting oi the Board of Trade  held last Friday evening to consider  the matter, Tno chief cause of complaint as explained,by ths chairman,  ' President S. T. Elliott, was the want  of a continuous servioe, and the closing up of the gaps on Sundays and  holidays during whioh tbe servioe waa'  not working. It waa well known to  everybody, said Mr.- Elliott, that,cob-  siderable loss had been suffered by  different citizens, particularly last  Sunday and two weeks ago, which  could i have been prevented ii the lira  alarm oould have been got in earlier.  There waa a very great risk, he said,  under present arrangements, and this  should not be allowed to continue.  .Nothing less than a continuous servioe would be satisfactory in a  town  for depreciation and dividonds.  We have two rates, $2.50 for residence, tVl.fid for business tilmnes,  rebate of 511 cents hoing given if paid  by the 18(h of each month, and a further discount of 10 per oent if paid  six months iu advance making tbe  rates an this basis SI ,80 for residence1  and $2.70 for business phones  ; In spite of pessimistic predictions  Ilia I hard times, the war and other  dark clouds in the sky would tend to  spoil this jour's rcgatto, tho event  lins turned out successful in every way.  The weather was almost ideal, with  lie exception of a brief squally period  on the second day. The attendants  un the first day was rather small, but  this was made up on Thursday with  lie result that in spite of unusual expenses   the taking will probably    be  sufficient to avoid a delicit.  The programme waB quite up to the  usual standard and excellently carried  out, though it is to be regretted that  the wur canoe events had to be abandoned owing to the inability of other  lake towns to get crews.  The chief attraction of course ' was  the hydroplane flight of Weldon B.  Cooke. The machine itself attracted  considerable attention during the  course of its erection and preparation  for flight, which took plaoe on the  second afternoon. . About 2.30 the  machine entered the water as grace.  fully as a swan and gathering spood  rose from thc surface of tho lake, and  circled several tinios around the bay  and gradually increasing its height  passed high ovor tho grand stand, the  whirr of the powerful six-cylinder engine making tho resemblance to some  huge insect wonderfully realistic Tbe  second flight was not so good, owing  to the choppy nature of the wind  which had become much stronger, and  after skimming along ihe lake for a  0W minutes thc aviator deemed it  wise to make 'for his landing plaoe.  The spectacle was new to many people  here, and the performance was greeted  with much applause.  Music was provided on tho first day  lav the Kelowna band and the second  lhe switchboard is   .intended '������ -irrw '     ,, ,      ,  "-'   ii.*    aau " ....       iT^njI* I'enltelon band  commodate 200 common battery lilies    ���,.    .��� ,. ,  ,o,���,    . .,        ..,,,.   ...       , ,    The illuminations each evening were  (SiUO phones if used to   lie limit) and , ���   ..       ..        .      ,,.,., j  ' .     ��� , '       , I verv effective the colored ItghtB    and  20 magneto lines.

The only thing which seems to  be well established is the fact of the  terrible lighting around the Belgian  fortified town of Liege, where the Germans   have apparently got their fW,  GERMANS,SHORT OF FOOD  "German cavalry patrols have bean  reported near Morchienne and Arion.

The new Admiralty and War Office  Information Bureau began work last  Tuesday. Its first announcement contained the following:  "About two Cavalry divisions are in  the neighborhood of Ti.agree., to the  north of Liege. Three German army  corps still are opposite Liege, and  other German troops are reported to  bo entrenching along the line of the  River Ajsne. The large Gorman force  is   moving through the Duohy of Lux-  of the smaller forts have been captured by the Germans. The bombardment of the fortifications by the Germans is proceeding without intermission. On one occasion a fort apparently had been silenced, but when German infantrymen advanced to attack  it �� hail of bullets was poured into  them so suddenly and effectively that  they retired with heavy loss.  "The German attackers, who nre  constantly being reinforced, displayed great courage.  "It is stated that 120,000 men of the  German army are engaged in the attack on Liege. Refugees from that city  describe the condition as terrible.  Many houses havs been damaged or  burned.  No news has yet been heard from the  North Sea and the stories of a big  naval battle and heavy German and  British losses have all been officially  denied. ���  (CoetUwrf sa Pa** a)  Proclamation has been issued that Servia is about to take the offensive,  and will invade Austria with aid of Montenegrin forces.  Turkish and Bulgarian movements  are at present unknown.

The apparatus was concealed,beneath the Belgian flag.  The Canadian cruiser Rainbow was reported sighted off Caps Flattery.  The provincial government purchased two submarines whieh bed just  beon completed in Ssattle. They were obtained on behalf of the IVdrinion.  That both Japan and Italy will bs involved in the martial conflict, is  tho belief in London diplomatic circles.  Tho national relief fund lor the fam. lies of soldiers killed or wounded in  the war, which was started umto tho auspioes of the Prince of Wales and  Queen Mother Alexandra, amounted this morning to $3,240,000.

In previous years, these excursions have been mado use of, especially from Vancouver, by parties of oity  dwellers desirous of a change into the  open air life in the Okanagan, ml  tho low ratos given greatly assisted in  securing the necessary help for harvest  ing the crops in the Okanagan.

Britain's Naval Strength  at the Review  Speaking of the recent review by the  King of the British fleet at Spithead,  The London Standard aaid:  A particularly brilliant speotaole eras  provided, when in brilliant sunshine  the 5th and 6th Cruiser squadrons of  the 2nd fleet and the 7th end ��th  Cruiser squadrons of the 3rd fleet  arrived at Spithead in quick succession and took up their moorings at  tbe west end of the line with almost  mechanical precision.  Earlier in the day the let fleet destroyer flotilla, looking venomously  wioked, steamed into Spithead and  took up their appointed positions, and  almost immediately afterwards the  crowds on shore were, delighted by  the sight of the airship, attended by  several servioe aeroplanes, flying over  the town and the harbor.  With the exception of a few cruisers  of the third fleet the mobilization is  how complete. Actually in Spithead  there will be 216 warships of various  sorts, but including the destroyer flo-  rillas, which are moored a few miles up  tillas, and the submarines, whioh are  attached to the patrol flotillas of the  second fleet, no fewer than 463 vessels  will be mobilised. The enormous size of  the Spithead review may be gauged  by the gross tonnage of the ships  there. This reaches- the colossal figure of 1,611)033. And this fleet oan  boast of well over 2000 guns.  The largest vessel present is ths  Queen Mary, battle cruiser, whioh is  660 feet long, and displaced 27,000  tons. The Lion and Princess lloval  are of the same length, but only displace 26,350 tons. The designed spied  of aU three is twenty-eight 1 nots.  The fastest ship present is ths Swift,  which was launched in 1007 as a "fascial type destroyer", but is now olns-  sed as a "flotilla leader.'' Uispbioing  only 2,170 tons, her turbines are of  30,000 horse power, and she has a designed speed af 36 knots The Swift  and all her destroyers present burn  oil fuel exclusively, and all are driven  by turbines. The light cruiser Amethyst, iflagsh p of the commodore commanding the flotillas, was the first  war ship larger than a destroyer to  be fitted with turbines. Ths destroyer  Hardy has three screws, of which the  centre one is driven by an internal  combustion motor. With the exception ol tbe Swift, all the destroysrs  have been launched during the last  four years-  Five of the ships present have cost  over ��2,000,000. These are the Lion.  Princes Royal, Queen Mary, Iron Duke  and Marlborough; but in no oaae has  the cost reached ��2,100,000. The smallest ships present are the destroyers  Ruby, Rifleman and Sheldrake, whioh  are 240 test long and displace 796 tons  The Lord Nelson, launched on September 4th, 1806 (seven months after the  Dreadnaught) was tbe lest pro-Dreadnought battleship launched for tbe  British navy. Nearly all the pre-Drssd-  nought battleships oan fire 4,000 lbs  of metal on tbe broadside, the available guns being four 12-inch and 12  (1-inch. The. Iron Duke fires 14,600  pounds of metal on the beam from  ten 13.6-jnch guos. Ships of this class  have two 3-inoh guns for attacking  aircraft. The oldest battleship present  if the Magnificant, lauoched December  19, 1804.  Firebox linings withstand yeara of use because made of McClary Semi-Steel.

Tho  meeting will convene on the mo.uing  of the 17th at 9.30 o'olock.  Experts in   fruit    culture exponents  of alfalfa   production    and practical  students of modern fanning in aU Its  ramifications   will   attend.   Questions  of the greatest interest to irrigation-  tsts will be discussed and dealt   with  by prominent authorities from California, Oregon, Idaho, Washington    und  Utah, as well as the prairie urovlnoes  nnd   British Columbia.    The splendid  encouragement that,   the    association  has reoeived in the attendance of dole-  gates at its last two conventions; the  fact that for the first time in history  the International Irrigation   Congress  will bo held in Canada a month later,  and that some of its    permanent officers will address the convention   and  the   general interest that is    steadily  manifesting itself throughout the    entire west    in the science of irrigation  practically assures'  a successful meeting.  Irrigation is a soienoe that is somewhat misunderstood, is the opinion ol  one eminent authority. To a! large  'number' of people, it stands lor "reclamation," as the only moans of salvation for . lands whioh otherwise  would be useless. Irrigation, it seems  to be thought, is merely a substitute  for, rainfall, and is.reaniired only in  those countries which unfortunately  have none. The success of irrigation  in converting desert or arid areas into  prosperous agricultural communities  lend Color to this rather common im-  Retndar Meeting of     ' GLeo*m' ��treet ���*   8.00  "/iT*��                W-A.
