 '^W4/\cT0klA. ��� *5  LC0o��s��iii^>y<  ctotima Hccart.  voj^.  NO. 25.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY. MAY 9, 1918.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Y.M.C.A. Campaign  Exceeds Expectations  The enthusiasm with which the  Y.M.C.A. campaign has been received locally has surprised even  the most sanguine workers, a sure  evidence of the fact that the value  of the organization and the work  it is doing amongst the boys from  Canada is recognized and appreciated. At the time of writing the  campaign ia still in progrett so  that it is impossible to give definite  figures as to the results achieved.  On the evening of Tuesday, the  first day, the figures stood at $ 1400,  and last night this had been doubled. Many of the collectors, however, had not made complete returns, so that it is now certain that  the objective of $3,000 ior the  Kelowna district will be well oversubscribed.  Kelowna hat every reaton to  feel proud of thit magnificent response, and it it is any indication  of what is being done in other  places, the two and a quarter millions asked for throughout the  whole ol Canada will be easily  forthcoming. That the money will  be needed there is no doubt, especially if an estimate recently  published is true���that at least  thirty Y;M.C.A. centres have been  lost in the great battle now raging  These losses must be made good  for the work must go on.  A considerable impetus was  given the local campaign by the  visit on Sunday of Lieut. Whittaker  who addreaaed a crowded meeting in Knox church at noon. Lieut.  Whittaker was a Methodist minister at Ladner when the war broke  out, and although he had passed  his examination for a commission  he enlisted as a private with the  University Battalion, seeing service  in the trenches. He is still suffering from the effects of shell shock  and wounds. Later he was raised  to the rank of lieutenant. He had  a thrilling story to tell of hia experiences and paid a high tribute  to the value of the Y.M.C.A. in ita  work amongst the men.  Later Lieut Whittaker left in Mr.  D. D. Campbell's car for Vernon,  where he was scheduled to speak  during the afternoon.  Mr. and Mis. W. B. M. Calder  left Tuesday morning for a motor  trip south probably as far south as  Spokane.  s Keep Saturday, July 6th, open  for the Grand Carnival in aid of  the Patriotic Fund. Special arrangements being made for out-  of-town visitors.  A report is in circulation, conveyed it is said in lettera from overseas,  that Pte. E. L. Ward, at one time  secretary of the local Farmers' Institute, has been killed in action.  The leader of the opposition,  Mr. J. W. Bowser is at present tour  ing the interior and is expected to  visit Kelowna next week. He is  simply making a holiday trip and  not endulging in anv public speak  ing, His object is to look person  ally into conditions throughout thn  province and to obtain first hand  knowledge for tuture use. It is  probable he will be here Thursday  and stay over until next day.  One of the three German long  range guns which had been bombarding Paris has been destroyed.  Deputy Minister of Agriculture  Scott, who has been seriously ill  for some time is reported to be recovering slowly. It is not likely,  however, that he will be able to return to hia duties for some time to  come.  The Germans on Saturday and  Sunday began the systematic destruction of Amiens, following the  course which annihilated Rheims.  They hurled more than 150 shells  and 60 aerial torpedoes into the  city, causing heavy property damage, killing aome civilians and endangering the cathedral, the palace  of justice and the muaeum. The  latter containa the famous Puvis de  Chavnea murals. Amiens was  evacuated by a large portion o:. the  civilian population aome time ago.  Recent despatches declared that  Rheims practically had been razed  and stated the famous cathedral  there was so badly wrecked that  its collapse was imminent.  Boy Scouts Give  Excellent Concert  For the fifth year in succession  the Boy Scouts have scored a success with their entertainment. In  the matter of attendance there was  nothing left to be deaired either on  Friday night or Saturday afternoon  for the whole accommodation of  the theatre was taken up on both  occasions. The scouts are accustomed.to work hard for their concert and they certainly deserved  every success. Besides, the annual  summer camp depends upon it Ss  that is largely where the funds go.  The programme was well arranged and went off without a hitch.  A bugle call "Assembly" by one of  the scouts opened the proceedings,  this being followed by a chorus  " The British Grenadiers," by the  troop, the air being repeated on  some fearsome instruments known  as " Kazoos."  The Cubs then took the stage  foi a while first giving a dumb-bell  drill to music, an item which was  very well done. The dumb-bells  for the drill were made by the  Cubs themselves. The same cubs  alao exhibited wonderful agility  and nerve in a three-tier pyramid  followed by a set-piece. The latter  items, performed by such young  lade, apparently surprised the  audience, which applauded heartily  greatly encouraging the boys who  appeared for the first time as a  unit of the Boy Scout Association,  working in conjunction with the  scouts.  An exhibition of first aid by the  scouts came next: " What to do  when a lady's dress catches fare,"  " Rescue from broken ice," and  " Bandaging and removing a person with a broken thigh," all executed with scout thoroughness and  skill.  Scout R. Duncan contributed a  spirited song, "You can't keep the  Irish down," the last verse, apparently adapted locally to fit the  acouta, being especially popular.  A gymnastic display by the  scouts included tumbling and pyramids, the last a five-tier collapsible one. The whole thing was  very cleverly done.  Cub Donald Duggan then recited  "When ma begins to clean," a  touching reference to the joys of  spring cleaning, especially appropriate just now. A somewhat doleful chorus about" Li'l Liza Jane "  brought the first half to a close.  After an interval of five! minutes  or so the troop appeared again in  the chorus "Over 1 here," the new  popular war song of our American  allies, whilst the well-known properties of " Limburger Cheese "  were the subject of a recitation by  Scout C. Richards.  An impressive ceremonial then  took place in the presentation of  silver crosses and-badges of which  a list follows. This was performed  by the Rev. and Hon. T. R. Heneage, acting commissioner of the  stouts for B.C., who had made a  special trip from Victoria to be  present at the concert. In a brief  address Mr. Heneage spoke in  highly appreciative terms of the  splendid work being carried on by  Scoutmaster Weddell in Kelowna,  He especially congratulated the  troop on being the winners of the  Lieutenant - Governor's Shield, a  great honor which implied a high  degree of efficiency. Mr. Heneage  also spoke of the Cubs who had  made great progress under the  leadership of Mr. J. Gordon, as.  sisted by Mr. H. G, Bartholomew.  He had heard with regret that Mr,  Gordon might leave Kelowna and  hoped that something would be  done to prevent this, in order that  the good work might be continued.  The presentations were then  made as follows:���  Silver Crosses to P.-L. G. Groves  and Scout J. Groves who rescued  Holland Burne who had broken  through the ice in March of last  year; All Round Cord (grade A),  First-Class badge and War Service  badge (84 hours) to P.-L. R. Parkinson ; King's Scout badge to Second T. Taylor; Horseman badge  to P.-Ls. C. Gaddes and R. Parkinson, SecondsG. Mantle, R. Weddell  and T. Taylor, and Scouts B, Davis,  L. Gaddes, C. McKenzie, E. Hunter, S. Whitehead and F. Sinkinson ;  Naturalist badge to P.-L J Calder;  Mittioner badge to P.-L. C. Gaddes  Second R. Weddell, and Scouts J.  Groves, S. Whitehead, E. Small, F.  Sinkinaon and E. Hunter; Garden*  Convention of Local  Sunday-school Workers  Last Thursday was held the third  annual conference of the Kelowna  District Sunday School Institute, an  organization of all the neighborhood for mutual help and encouragement. The various Sunday-  Schools were well represented at  both the afternoon and evening  meetings, and the addresses given  and discussions arising therefrom  were of a most interesting and  helpful description.  The afternoon session was held  in the Baptist church. The general  business of the conference was  first disposed of, including the  election of officers for the ensuing  year, which are as follows: President, C. Fleming; vice-president,  A. G. Todd ; secretary, Miss G.  Hunter, the above to form an executive with all the Sunday-school  superintendents and ministers of  the district,  Mrs. Cartridge read a paper on  "The Superintendent and the Teacher," touching upon many problems and suggestions in Sunday-  school management.  Mr. James Gcrdon dealt with  "The Place of the Sunday-school  n the National Life," a carelully-  prepared paper which presented a  new outlook to the Sunday-school  The need of a more comprehensive system of moral education  was one of the duties of the state  and fully as important as the present secular educational system.  In the evening a session was held  in the Methodist church, Mrs. McGregor speaking on " Evangelism  in the Sunday School," and Mr.  A. G. Todd on "The Excellency of  the Bible." Miss Dalziel, of Rutland, was the soloist.  Insist on Regulations  Being Carried Out  The following telegram received  by Mr. L, V. Rogers, secretary of  the local Food Control committee,  from central B. C. committee at the  coast, speaks for itself: ���  "Give utmost publicity to the  need of consumers returning to  dealers all surplus flour and sugar  before May 15th according to the  ordera of the Food Board recently  announced in the newspapers.  Otherwise liable to heavy fines and  confiscation to the crown. All  police officers authorized to enforce  the law. Ignorance of the law will  not be accepted aa an excuse."  B.C. Committee, Canada Food Bd.  The German minister of war has  ordered an inventory of all bronze  statuea throughout Germany, directing that the list indicate those  which "can best be spared," with  a view to their requisition for military use. He has also ordered an  inventory of church bells, which  have hither-to escaped military confiscation.  er badge to Second T. Taylor;  Carpenter badge to P.-L. R. Parkinson and Scout L. Gaddes; Cyclist  badge to scout N. Marshall; Pioneer Badge to Second G. Mantle and  Scout J. Groves; Tenderfoot badge  to Scouts F. Hewetson, E. Groves,  C. Richards and W. Walker.  Awards to the Cubs are as follows : Second Stars to Sixers Ralph  Ball and Earl Wilson; First Stars  to Cuba Frank Fummerton, Ellis  Todd, Donald Loane and Victor  Fowler.  The Cubs appeared again alter  this with a chorus "Our Flag," followed by an original and very  effective flag drill, ending with the  cry of the Wolf Cub Pack, "Akela"  ���probably not grasped by the audience in general.  The concluding chorus " Where  do we go from heie > " was sung  bv the scout troop.  The scouts were honored this  year by many visitors from neighbouring towns. From Summerland  six scouts of that troop cycled up  Friday staying over until Sunday.  On Saturday the Rev. E. P. Laycock, of Vernon, brought down a  party of twenty scouts by cars, returning the same evening.  The scouts acknowledge with  gratitude the assistance of many  friends in the carrying out of the  concert and thank them more personally in their own column.  Kelowna Water Users  Organize Community  For several years past users of  irrigation water within the city limits  have, through lack of any kind of  organization, allowed the a, stem to  fall into decay. Though most of  the land originally under the old  record has been subdivided into  small lots for residental purposes,  whose owners now prefer to use  city water for their gardens, there  are still several tracts of land where  the irrigation water is still required.  Spasmodic efforts have been made  from time to time to revive tne system, and to organize the various  users, but without any great success.  Recent amendments to the Water  Act, however, have opened up new  possibilities in this direction and  at a meeting held Friday afternoon  last in the office of Mr. F. W. Groves, water commissioner for the  district, ol about a score of those  most interested it was decided to  form a "Water Users Community"  as authorized by the Act and to  make an assessment on the users  to pay all costs of putting the works  into good condition, and for the  maintenance of a water bailiff.  The principal items of expense  will be construction of a new intake and dam on Mill Creek. These  works are not used exclusively by  the city but are shared by several  outside u��ers, including the Bank-  head, Pridham, Geo. E. Thompson  Geo. Ritchie and other properties.  In fact, these outside users represent about two-thirds of the acreage served, and these have agreed  to share the cost of the new work  in proportion to their holdings.  The intake and dam together  are estimated to cost in the neighbourhood of $400, and in addition  a sum of $250 has already been  apent in repairing the headgate.  These litems will be pooled and a  general assessment made according to acreage to pay for them. It  we* roughly calculated that about  300 acres were covered by the  works of which 200 acres belonged to outside owners leaving a  third of the cost to be divided  amongst city users. The expense  of a bailiff, of course, would fall  entirely upon city users.  Resolutions were passed approving these proposals, and a com-  n iltee, consisting of Messrs. Knowles, D. McMillan and Jas. Harvey,  jr., appointed to look after the  details of organization and to collect money to pay for work done  already.  More Local Men  Returned  Three more local soldiers have  returned to Kelowna during the  past week and have been accorded  the usual enthusiastic reception.  On Friday last the whistle announced the arrival of Pte. Chas.  Perron, a Westbank man, who  went over with the 172nd. He ia  back here on a short furlough.  On Monday Pte. Gua Anderson,  another 172nd man. cam-in unexpectedly, although it was known  to his family that he was on his  way home. Pte. Anderson went  over to France when the local  contingent was split up in the old  country and was in the tre.iches  for a short time. Later owing to  ill-health he was engaged in his  old business of farming al some  point back of the lines.  Returning with Pte. A rderaon  waa Tom Davy, aon of Mr, A. R.  Davy. Though slill under seventeen he went over about ��� year  ago with the 2nd CM.R's. and  after a period of training in England was drafted to the 11 enches.  Tom is a husky boy for I is years  but under recent regulations he is  too young to remain oversr-iis. He  haa to report to Vancouver in a  few days when he will probably  get his discharge.  Two Kelowna young ladies distinguished themselves in tho recent  University examinations, Misses  Marguerite Clarke and Vivian  Jones. Harold Etter, a former Kelowna student but now of Penticton,  was also successful.  The state ot Michigan went dry  May 1st.  Rooms Opened for  Veterans' Association  The Kelowna Great War Veterans' Association-have now been  placed in a position to go ahead  with the furnishing of their club  room and hostel. The scheme to  thus provide temporary quarters  for the returned men, particularly  those who might have no other  home to go to, has found ready  support, and a total of $432.80 has  been raised by various means to  purchase furniture and equipment  for two rooms in the Hewetson-  Mantle block. The rooms are those  formerly occupied by Dr McNaughton. Thev comprise a large front  room which has been supplied  with tables, desk and chairs for thc  use of the members ofthe Association. In the other room will be  provided four beds to be used by  returning men until permanent  homes are found for them.  Of the total funds the " ball"  was the means of raising $247.30,  the "Cafe Chantant" $158, and  the choral concert $27.50. The  veterans desire to thank all who  lent their assistance in making  these rooms possible.  America Ships Big Gun  A mammoth gun, capable of  shooting 114 miles, much farther  than the 76-mile gun with which  Germany has been bombarding  Paris, has been made at the Eddy-  stone plant of the Baldwin Locomotive Company at West Philadelphia  and has already been shipped  abroad.  It will shoot a 14-inch shell and  con So used on land or on a battleship. It is without doubt the greatest gr n ever manufactured. It is  understood that nine more of these  enormous weapons will be made.  Ai old Chinaman named Lee  Hin committed suicide laat week  at Vernon by hanging himself to  an apple tree. Ill health is supposed to have been the cause.  A company known as the Vernon Storage Co.. is being formed  in the neighbouring city to erect a  big warehouse capable of storing  250 carloads of fruit. The building will be 250 by 150 feet with  frost-proof basement and first floor.  O. E. Tomlin, in charge of the  boat which plies between Okanagan Falls and South Penticton on  Dog Lake, was found a few days  ago lying dead beside his engine.  He had started out from the Falls  for a night run, and as he failed to  arrive at South Penticton a search  was made by A. S. Hatfield the  owner of the boat. The boat was  discovered floating idly on the lake  below the wharf and the searchers  were shocked to find on boarding  it the dead body of Tomlin lying  beside the engine. He had been  poisoned by the flumes from the  distillate used as fuel in the engine.  He was 44 yeara of age.  Over 300 halibut boats are working out of Prince Rupert, the great  fish city of Canada.  China now ia sending troops to  France to fight for the Allies. It is  the calculation of the Peking Gov-  ernment to have no fewer than  40,000 fighting men With the  French bv eailv summer. There  sre ten Chinese officers in France  to select training camps for Chinese  troops.  A public letter from General  Maurice, formerly director of military operations, substantially charging that Lloyd George and Chancellor Bonar Law lacked varacity  concerning vital matters, admittedly presents the gravest situation  confronting the much-assailed government. Right Hon. H. H. Asquith  precipitated matters in the Commons Tuesday afternoon, bluntly  asking the government what steps  they intended to take regarding  the letter. Law replied that tho  army council was enquiring into  the question of military discipline  raised by the letter. He said the  government had asked for the appointment of two judges to investigate the Maurice allegations against  ministers, and offered to permit  Asquith to name one.  Rutland News  (From oar asm sorrsBnoiiosBtl.  Miss Phillips,  of Vancouver, is  visiting the Misses Gay.  The Girls' Enterprise Club will  meet at the home of Mrt. Plowman  on Tuesday evening May 14th.  The Rev. Griffiths and Mr. W.  Craig went to Vernon on Wedneaday to attend the Methodist district  meeting.  The Red Cross committee of  the Rutland Women's Inttitute  gratefully acknowledge the receipt  of $15, the amount collected at the  Presbyterian Church, also a parcel  of 19 pairs of socks Irom the Girls'  Enterprice Club.  A farewell party was given last  week at the home of Clarence  Duncan, to Lionel Wanless, who  has received orders to report at  headquarters, Vancouver, at once.  All the Rutland young people  were present and spent a most  enjoyable time.  The United Farmers held their  usual meeting Monday and considering the busy season the attendance was good. Mr. J. W. Jones,  M.P.P., gave a full and instructive  account of the various bills of  interest to farmers in general and  this district in particular, which  were passed at the parliamentary  session just closed. The audience  showed both interest and appreciation. It was decided to hold the  meetings on the first Monday in  each month during the busy season  instead of bi-weekly as heretofore.  Mrs. John Morrison has just received from Mr. Mitchell of the  Vernon Jubilee Hospital, a letter  acknowledging the sum of $48.68  raised by a committee of Rutland  ladies for the benefit of the returned soldiers at that institution. In  thanking the ladies for their gift  the promise was given that care  would be taken to see that the  amount was properly expended as  intended for the entertainment and  comfort of the boys.

Must Return Surplus  Flour and Sugar  The Canada Food Board has is  sued a sharp warning that the recent  order restricting the amount of  flour and sugar which may lawfully  be held must be strictly observed  and that excess holdings must be  returned at once to the dealers from  whom they were purchased. The  food board, with the co-operation  of municipal police authorities all  through Canada, is prepared strictly to enforce the regulations.  "People who have more sugar or  flour than is permitted under the  regulations have only a short time  left in which to dispose nf their excess holdings, before they become  liable to seizure and forfeiture"  Harry B. Thomson, chairman of  the board, slated recently.  ���_���o   Young Men of Niueteen  to be Called Up  Men of 19 years of age are to be  called upon to register for military  service. A proclamation to this  effect will be issued shortly, and, it  is understood, will provide that the  men, must register before June.  None of the men will, however,  actually be called to the colors before July. The proclamation will  apply to unmarried men and widowers without children born since  October 13, 1897.  The men will be required to register through the post offices as was  the case when unmarried men and  widowers between 20 and 34 yoars  of age were called upon October  13 last. The men will give their  names and addresses and such details as will permit full registration  to be effected. The actual call to  the colors will be received by registered post from the district registrar.  The purpose of stipulating that  the call shall apply to men born  since October 13th, 1897, is apparently to make it include all those  who were 19 years old and not 20  when the first class was called out  on October 13, 1917.  The call will apply to those "who  have attained the age of 19 years,  and who were born on or since  October 13, 1887, and are unmarried.  ���  British losses in men killed,  wounded, captured and missing  on the western front since the German offensive began March 2 I are  estimated by the British mission in  America at nearly 250,000.  With great deliberation, Sir Robert Borden told about 300 protesting farmers Saturday that after giving serious consideration to the  question of drafting farmers between the ages of 20 and 32 foi  service overseas, the government  has decided that the necessity for  reinforcements was more pressing  than the need of incieased production.

Dr. Rader Is the author of several  well-known" books and has made ft  qlche for himself In the newspaper  Held.

May 7. 1918  ORDERS by command for week  ending May 18, 1918.  DUTIES: Orderly patrol for  week Eagles; next for duty, the  Otters.  PARADES: The combined troop  will parade at the club room on  Wednesday and Saturday the 15th  and 18th of May at 7.15 and 2.15  p.m. respectively.  Scout W. Walker passed the  tests for his Tenderfoot Badge on  Sa'.urday April 27th and along with  Scouts C. Richards, F. Hewetson  and E. Groves was invested as a  scout on the 1st of May.  The gratitude we should like to  express to all our friends who  came to our assistance and helped  to make the concert the success it  was, is only limited by the size of  our column. In, particular we wish  to thank here Miss E. Jones and  Mr. Geo. McKenzie, who trained  us for the songs, and who have  been with us so much lately, that  we almost feel they are n.embers  of the troop ; Mrs. Small and Mrs.  Rowcliffe for material loaned and  who worked so hard decorating  the stage; Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Richards for their services in the box  office and as accompanist respectively ; Messrs D. Lloyd-Jones and  Swerdfager for enabling two of  our leaders in their employ to get  off for Friday and Saturday afternoon ; Miss Raymer, manager of  the theatre, for courtesies extended  and loan of material, and last but  not least the Cubs and their masters  and instructors, Messrs. Gordon  and Bartholomew, and the accompanists, Miss Packham, Miss Ritchie and Mr. Henry Tutt.  We alao wish to thank Mr. DuMoulin for hia hospitality and kindness in assisting with the entertainment of the Summerland scouts,  and Mrs, Richards and her willing  band of helpers for their service  with the tea on Saturday after the  concert. We had hoped to have  the Vernon scouts present at this  tea, but as the weather looked  threatening and some of them had  open cara they had to get back  early. We might again aay here  how very glad we were to have  six of the Summerland scouts with  us from Fridav to Sunday and the  Vernon scouts on Saturday  after-  The promotion of P.L. Henry  Crowley in the service of the C.P.R.  is our loss, for on Monday he left  for Field, and with one stroke we  are deprived of our Troop secret  ary, bugler and Beaver patrol  leader. Henry was one of the  faithful and'original firsts, having  joined the troop in June 1912, two  months after it was formed. He  was a Kings Scout, as well as the  holder of 6 proficiency badges and  combined the duties of troop leader and secretary for the greater  part of last year up to this year  when the offices were divided. So  it was with exceeding regret and  sense of loss that we saw the boat  taking him from us on Monday  morning. Field is not far though,  and we may see him at times, but  wherever he may be the best wish-  ���s of the troop for his good luck  will follow him, and knowing this  we hope encourage him in the  great game of life just beginning.  The Canadian Niagara Bridge  Company, of which Baron Shaugh-  nessy is the head, proposes to con  struct a new international bridge  across the Niagara River at some  convenient point between Chippewa and Fort Erie on the Canadian  side to the opposite side of the  river in the State of New York,  The bridge will cost approximately  $7,000,000.

Accidenta will happen, and what  might have proved far more oer  ious happened last Saturday when  in spite of all precaution the snap-  of a new hawser-laid rope resulted  in a heavy tree backing-up and  falling across a chicken house belonging to Mr. Paialey in which a  8Core of fowls were roosting. Great  was the fall of that house I���but  the chickens must have had a dugout or "shell hole" into which they  escaped for strange to say there  were no casualties.  A dog's fondness for milk got  him into an awkward fix a few days  ago around Norman Day'a dairy.  Knowing nothing of the prohibition  covering auch conduct, this little  canine spied a milk-can which still  retained something of the aroma  and.flavor of its late contents. He  licked around the mouth of the can  firtst ond it tnsted good. Then he  reached further in. The neck of  the can waa small, and it waa a  tight ht, and he had to put his  tongue out as fai as it would go to  get the last drops. Having got all  there was to get he started to back  out���but, alaal eith-r the can had  shrunk or his head had swelled,  possibly with the thought that he  alone had discovered this glorious  feast. Anyway it wouldn't come  out. All efforts to pull him out  were fruitless. He would speedily  have suffocated, but Norman has a  kind heart and punched a hole in  the bottom of the can to give him  air. Finally the can had to b  sacrificed altogether, and cut away  to set the dog free. There is one  dog which has no use now for th  dairy buainess.
