 i.Co��MKav5iy)  KetoUma Utt0tb  a,  VOL X.  NO. 12.  *  KELOWNA BRITISH WuMMA, THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 7, 1918.���4 PACES  11.90 Par Anna*  Municipal Taxation Meth  ods Under Revision  Important Amendments to Act  Are Laid Before Council  The whole question of municip.  al finance seems likely to be under  consideration at the coining session  of the legislature, judging from a  budget of suggested amendments  which have been laid before the  council for suggestion and criticism. The proposed amendments  cover a wide range from the appointment of assessor and the  method/of assessment and preparation of tax roll, the levying and  collection of taxes, methods of  dealing with delinquents, tax sales  and the' many problems arising  therefrom. The copies of amend,  ments emanate trom the office of  the provincial inspector of municipalities, and will form the basis- of  an amending bill to be laid before  the house at Victoria in the course  of the next few weeks.  A number of interesting meteorological statistics were submitted  by Mr. L. E. Taylor, who had been  requested by the council to prepare  the same in response to an enquiry  by Major T. C Rroctor, of Vancouver. The latter had been authorized to collect data with a view to  the location of a sanitorium for  returned soldiers.  A vote of thanks was passed to  .Mr, Taylor for his services in preparing the information.  The monthly police report showed a total of 14 cases before the  magistrate, and fines collected of  $110. Trade license fees collected  during the month had amounted  to $645.  The usual analysis of milk samples waa given as follows: N. Day  4 0; D. C. Middleton, 4.0; J. Birch,  Aid. Mantle presented a report  prepared by Mr. F. W. Groves,  giving levels of different portions of  the city in relation to the zero mark  on the Dominion government  gauge. The object was to fix a  level above which (he rise of the  lake would seriously affect the city.  Thia was suggested as two feet  above the zero mark;  On the recommendation of Aid,  Knowles, chairman of the parks  committee, Messrs. L E. Taylor,  W. J. Palmer, and D. W. Crowley  were added to the committee.  The meeting was adjourned to  the 18th inst.   lo   Encourages Use of  More Frozen Fish  The Food Controller, through the  Fish Committee of his office, is endeavoring to encourage increased  use in Canada of frozen fish. This  effort is part of the larger campaign  to increase consumption of all kinds  of fish in order to release beef,  bacon, and other meats for export  to the Allies.  An increased demand for frozen  fish should result in the decrease in  ( market price as an abundant supply  is available. Many people have a  prejudice against frozen fish sirr ply  because they do not'understand the  proper method of handling it  Whatever may have been the  practice in the past, the present  method, of freezing fish shortly  after they are caught prevents deterioration and the fish is delivered  to the customer in ideal condition.  To prepare frozen fish for cooking it should be put in cold water  and left there for several hours in  l order that frost mav be entirely  thawed from it. It will then be in  practically the same condition as  before .it was frozen. Many people  make the mistake of pouring hot,  or even boiling watei on frozen  fish in order to thaw it. This has  the result of breaking down the tissues and leaving the fish in a flabby  condition, which makes it undesirable for cooking.  One of. the Okanagan's oldest  pioneers and chief of the former  'cattle ktnga" of the valley passed  away Friday in the person of  Thomas Ellis, who died at his residence in Victoria at the age of 74.  L. E. Tqylor Appointed  to Food Commission  A few days ago Mr. L E. Taylor  received a letter from Dr. Wet-  brook, head of the Provincial  Food Committee, asking him to  accept nomination to the committee as a representative tor this district. This committee, whrch is  acting in an advisory capacity in  co-operation with the Dominion  Food Controller, consists of twenty-  five members, with Dr. Weabrook,  principal of the B.C. University, as  chairman.  At the meeting of the Farmers'  Institute Saturday Mr. Tavlor made  mention ot the matter, stating that  he telt some hesitation in accepting owing to the feeling locally  that no person interested in the  purchase or sale of fruit should be  on such a committee.  It was the general view of the  meeting, however, that Mr. Taylor  could not be regarded as coming  under that class, and a resolution  was unanimdusly passed approving the nomination and endorsing  Mr. Taylor aa a very suitable member of the committee.  Son of R. N. Dundas  Dies in England  The distressing news was received from England by cable in  the early part of this week of the  death on February 2nd, of James  Robert Duncan Dundas, son of  Mr. R. N. Dundas, of Kelowna.  Pneumonia is given as the cause,  contracted as the result of a chill.  The voung man was entered as a  cadet with the Royal Flying Corps,  and' it was during the course of  his training that he caught the cold  which resul'ed in his death. He  waa less than 19 years of age having been born in Kelowna July  90th, 1899, and as an only son  his loss will be very keenly felt.  Mr. and Mr. Dundas are amongst  the old-timers of the Kelowna district and known and respected  throughout the valley, and deep  sympathy will be felt with them fh  their .great loss.  Government Will Assist  in Getting Pure Seed  The following letter has been received from Mr H. O. English as a  reault of a resolution forwarded to  the department asking that the  government supply pure stocks of  seed grain and potatoes:���  "I note that your Institute wishes  to purchase wheat, oats, barle> and  potatoes. If you will give me definite information as to the seed required in your district, steps will  probably be taken to secuae supplies for delivery to farmers at  cost. Before applying to the department it would be well to ascertain what supplies are available  locally. Kindly advise me at the  earliest possible date re the teed  situation in your district."  It is hoped that all who require  seed and potatoes and also those  who have pure stocks for sale will  notify the Institute promptly, as  there appears to be a vary general  shortage of good seed stocks  throughout Canada.  Save the Heifer Calves  An appeal it being tent out from  the Live Stock Branch of the Department of Agriculture to save all  heifer calves from good producing  cowa in order to avoid the otherwise inevitable shortage of cowt in  the near future. Farmers are atked  to notify the live stock commissioner of the number of tuch heifers that they will be obliged to tell  for veal during 1918, and alto of  the number of calves of suitable  parentage desired to be purchased.  Toronto's four-day campaign to  raise money for the Patriotic Fund  and Red Crott brought in $3,133-  348.69.  Fate of Stored Ooloos  io Still Uncertain  Farmers' Institute Haars Report  - Food and Labor Problems  The onion is not usually regarded as a very modest vegetable at  the best of times. It has a way of  intitting that its pretence thai! be  felt and its powert duly recognized. Thit it true of oniont individually. Collectively, they teem  to be quite at insistent, and Kelowna growers are likely to, have  many anxious hours before the  scent of last year's crop of bulbs  haa become merely a memory.  During the flurry of latt season's onion harvett when the crop  from the largest acreage ever planted in this district was being gathered in, many outside buyert aa  well at local firmt were on the  ground bidding againtt each other,  and growera were led to believe  from thit competition that the  phenominal prices of the previout  year would be repeated or even  exceeded. Large quantities were  put into ttorage locally and something over 300 tons were shipped  to Vancouver under an arrangement with a Mr. Torry, there to be  held presumably to wait for the  coming high prices. These high  prices failed to arrive, and the  onions are trill there, and accord,  ing to reportt are in danger of  apoiling altogether.  In consequence of an agitation  raised over the possible waste of  food the Food Controller has  stepped in. The provincial com.  mittee had to deal with the matter  and the presence of Mr. Robert  son, one time manager of the  United Growers, who it evidently  still in bad with the local growers,  on that committee, created much  suspicion and uneasinett.  Mr. L. E. Taylor, who hat been  paying, a visit to the coaat, undertook to inquire into the matter on  behalf of the local growera, and on  Saturday afternoon at a tpecial  meeting of the Farmers' Institute,  he related to a considerable gathering the result of hit investigations. The oniont, he eaid, were  undoubredly in bad condition, and  the Food Committee had induced  the government intpectort to put  in men to sort 'the onions and  classify them into three grades.  Number ones were those which  would keep for some time yet;  number twot were those which  must be evaporated right away to  prevent them spoiling; and the  rest were absolute watte and mutt  be destroyed. He had not com.  plete figures at to the retult of the  sorting, but aa an instance of the  ttate of the oniont he said that at  the time he waa there 400 bagt  had been sorted and in putting  the oniont back 250 new tackt  had to be used, the others being  too rotton to hold them. For the  No. 2 onions the evaporators have  been asked to tender. Of No. I  oniont anything that can be taved  for the owners will be saved, said  Mr. Taylor, though he could not  say definitely how the proceeds  would be disposed, or who had  the first claim upon them.  Personally he believed Mr. Robertson's actions in the matter had  been perfectly open and straight,  and he had, in fact, owing to the  circumstances refrained from taking any active part in the matter,  leaving the rest of the committee  to deal with it. .  As to the growers' relations with  Mr. Tony and their prospects of  enforcing the conditions of the  contracts made with him he wat  unable to make any statement.  With regard to the oniont held  in ttorage in Kelowna Mr. Taylor  said a proposition waa being discussed to have the government  advance money fcr tbeir evaporation the growers to hold "the evaporated product until there was a  market for it The Food Committee had wired Ottawa, but the  Food Controller and the Dominion  government had both put the matter back upon the provincial gov-  vernment, so that if anything was  done the latter.would have to do  it Every effort was being made to  save the crop in this way, but the  growers would probably have to  wait for their money until the  evaporator product was sold.  Mr. Taylor also told the meeting  Hakes Plea for Support  of Patriotic Fund  Mr. F. Nation Combats Idea of  Government Control  A public meeting in connection  with the local branch of the Canadian Patriotic Fund was held latt  Friday evening for the purpose of  hearing an addrett from the pro  vincial tecretary of the Fund, Mi  F. Nation, of Victoria. ��  Mr. Thos. Bulman pretided and  in opening the meeting complimented Mr. Beale for the earnett  'and heroic work which he had  been doing. The subscriptions  had shown a conaiderable increase  over last year, and though the  collections were still considerably  lets than the ditbursements yet  at Kelowna had contributed to  many men thia wat not to be wondered at  In appealing for a continuation  of support for the Fund, Mr. Nation referred to the recent criti-.  citms and the demands made to  Ottawa from various quarters for  government administration of the  Fund. A thorough investigation  had been made from headquarters  and the advantages and disadvantages of government or voluntary  control carefully weighed. It hed  been decided after the most search-  inquiry that it waa neither necessary nor desirable to fall back  upon, the Federal government to  carry on the work.  There were undoubtedly certain  reasons why the government might  take over the Fund, but there were  very much greater reasons why it  should be carried on as before.  Mr. Nation pointed out that it  the government took over the work  it would cost from ten to fifteen  millions of dollars more to do the  tame work. Discrimination could  not be exercited, aa at present, regarding the needs of recipients,  and tha monev given only where it  it deemed necessary. The grant  would have to be uniform and  given to all alike. If the fundt had  to be raised by taxation, which  would be the only way the government could raite it, the many  large tubtcriptions given by companies and wealthy pertont would  be lost. Then, at to the cost of administration : the work, all through  the country, is done by volunteers,  many of them even paying their  own expenses. The cost of the administration of the Fund for the'Dominion is  leso than 6-1 Oths of I per cent., and for  the province it is leu than 1.4th of I per  cent.  The levying of a tax would place the  burden upon the wrong people and would  eliminate the personal sacrifice which was  an element in the raising of the money.  He referred to the large contributions  mad* by soma private individuals and  corporations which would be lost if a tax  were imposed. The head office for the  province hae received in local contributions since the war started $2,463,854. and  has paid out to recipienta $3,539,732, leaving a balance of $1,075,877 to be made up  out of the national fund from Ottawa.  The number of familiea receiving from  the Fund in B.C. ia 6,964. In these homes  are 11.519 children, making a total of 18,-  463 people who are receiving something  from the Fund. The amount each family  recaivee runa from $5 to $45 per month,  $21 being the average.  To meet the increased cost of living the  Militia Department had increased the separation allowance of private soldiers from  $20 to $25. and the Fund's maximum grant  had been raised from $40 to $45 a month.  Mr. Nation pointed out that the money  received by soldiers' families must not be  looked upon as being in anv sense charity;  it is not charity, it is pay for valuable aervice rendered.  Criticisms of the Fund he said were  nearly always idle gossip, and would not  bear investigation.  Archdeacon Greene who was asked to  speak on the subject before tha meeting  cloeed, said ha saw no reason to disagree  with the remarks ef Mr. Nation. The  crux of the whole situation ha thought was  that tha present voluntary system did not  touch those indifferent ones who were well  able to pay but refused to do so, preferring to let others fight their battles. If any  way could be devised to gat at these  slackers, there would ba an end to most of  the criticism. .  fOsa  sa lata 4.1  Mr. Geo. S. McKenzie has been  selected by the publicity section of  the Food Controller's office, Ottawa,  to be chairman of a Kelowna Retail Merchants' Committee, whole  duty it will be to secure co-operation of all local merchants in the  education of people in food conservation, production, and elimination of waste by means of window  displays, advertising, ate.  Boat Service  Starting   Monday   Next  Old  Schedule WiU Be Resumed  The following message from the  divisional superintendent F. W.  Peters, announcing the resumption  of the daily boat service will no  doubt be received as one of the  most* welcome pieces of news  which hat come to hand for a long  time.  The great inconveniencet which  have been suffered, still further  aggravated by the breakdown on  the K.V.R., have raised a storm of  protest from one end of the valley  to the other, and not the least  amongst the company's own employees. It will no doubt have to  be only the severest necessity which  will induce any repetition of the experiment. The telegram runs at  follows:���  "Regarding service through the Okanagan diatrict. On consulting with the manager of the Kettle Valley Railway it is  evident they will not ba able to repair the  damage to the bridges through the Coqui-  halla for two months, and in consequence  cannot maintain the aervice which we contemplated when we reduced the service to  tri-weekly, resulting in our being uneble  to give the six day1 aervice through your  diatrict as we expected. Under these circumstances, in order to meet the urgent  request of your diatrict, on Feb. I Ith will  reatore the daily (except Sunday) service  from Sicamous to Penticton."  News of Neighbours  The Penticton Hotpital Society  hat been obliged to repeat itt  annual general meeting. Owing  to the fact that teveral of thote  who voted for the election of officers were found to be unqualified  the whole proceedings were declared illegal.  The Penticton municipality it  discussing the advisability of establishing and maintaining a fish  hatchery for the purpose of stocking the Okanagan lake with trout,  and thut increaaing the fishing attractions of the district for tourists.  Co-operation of other lake towns  it being sought.  A Penticton man hat just sued  the municipality for the return of  67c alleged to be overcharged for  his domestic water service. The  case waa decided against the complainant, who waa also saddled  with the costs of the court which  amounted to one dollar.  Frater Valley elections, the validity of which it in doubt on  account of failure of candidates to  file statutory declarations, will be  validated by an act to be patted  at the coming session of the legislature.  Both at Summerland and Peachland the selection of a half holiday  wat again voted on at the recent  civit elections held at these placet.  In both cases Thursday received a  large majority of votet.  A club it being organized in  Penticton, having at itt object the  promotion of the social and industrial welfare of ita members and  the town and aurrounding territory  generally. The functiona of an  automobile club will perhapt alto  be included in itt activitiet. The  name of the organization hat not  yet been decided upon, but it will  perhapt be the Penticton Club,  following along lines of timilar institutions in other important centres. A room hat bren secured at  the Incola Hotel, which will be fitted up with chairs, tablea, etc., for  the use of the members ; merchants  will be enabled to meet travelling  salesmen here and sample roomt  are adjacent. Fruit growers from  the benches who are members of  the club coming into town with an  hour or to on their hands will have  a convenient place to drop in and  meet friends or business attociatet  or to write a letter. Monthly or  weekly luncheona will probably be  inaugurated where members can  get together and talk over matters  of mutual interest. Some $0 have  tigned up for membership and the  organization will be formed short-  ly.  Local Committee For  FOod Conservation  Will Be Re-organized Under  Civic Auspices  The subject of food conaervstioa  is to be taken up in Kalowna ia  real earnest next Friday evening  when Mr, J. W, Gibson, provincial  oiganizer of food conservation will  addrett a public meeting called by  tbe city council, At thit meeting  the existing committee which has  already made some tentative efforts  to enlist public support will he reorganized under the authority of  the city, and ita number added to.  This committee will include members of the city council and other  local organizations and will at once  formulate some plan of action.  The great importance ot food saving aa well as of food production  is gradually becoming recognized,  but it is imperative that no time  should be lost in placing clearly  before householders ana consumers generally just how and on what  particular articles they mutt economize. It it not to much a matter  of doing without, at least in this  country, at of substitution���reducing the consumption of certain  articles by the substitution of other  more easily obtained commodities.  To educate the public along these  lines, and to secure uniform and  therefore effective action it the  aim of the food conservation committees.  Choral Conceit to Assist  Deserving Closes  With the idea of raiting fundt  for tome patriotic purpose and at  the same time of stimulating musical interest in the town, a choir  haa been formed, with the object  of giving a choral concert early ia  April. Mr. Tod Boyd, whote musical ability is widely recognised,  has kindly consented to conduct.  The first practice was held in the  Methodist church Tuesday evening  when tome forty people attended.  Mr. Boyd expressed himself at delighted with the enthusiasm thown  in the project and emphasized the  fact that the time being ao short  those who had already joined  should realize that the practices  should be fully and regularly at.  tended. Any singers who desire  to join will be welcomed, but  should do so not later than Tuesday next when practice will ba  held in the Methodist church, commencing at 8 o'clock prompt.  The question was brought up  aa to what the proceeds should be  used for, and the many deserving  cautet were each championed in  turn, a final vote deciding that the  Kelowna Hotpital and Red Cross  Society should each receive fifty  per cent of any money raised.  Cannery Men Here  A number ofthe leading officials  of the Dominion Canners Ltd. were  in Kelowna last weekend in tha  course of a tour of the valley looking into the tomato situation here.  The party comprised S. Nesbit, M.  P. for Brighton, Ont, president of  the company, F. G. Evans, B.C. representative, D. Marshall of Aylmer,  Ont, tales manager.^vith P. M.  Groom and A E. Ellaid manager!  of the Vernon and coaat branches.  The company hat lately entered  into an arrangement with the Food  Product! Co. of Vancouver to take  over the cannery at Keremeot, and  they expect to turn out a big pack  there thia year.

Irrigation Bill Provides  For Loans Only  The principle of public owner  ship will be provided for in the  new irrigation legislation to be  brought down at the coming session  o( the Legislature, Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister of lands, announced  the other day.  Hon. Mr. Pattullo explained that  lhe government's proposal to create  an irrigation fund of $500,000 for  the protection of the water users  on the various irrigation systems of  the dry belt would include a plan  to build storage reservoirs and  main channels where necessary.  It is apparently not the intention ol  the department to go into public  ownership in a large way, however;  the half-million-dollar fund being  reserved particularly for repair  work on systems in the hands of  liquidated companies.  "Our principle ts to help the  water users to help themselves,"  said the minister of lands. "With  this fund we will be in a position  to lend money on irrigation bond  issues, to make loans to systems  urgently requiring repairs, to provide for capital expenditures in re-  seryoirs or ditches; in fact to do  anything that we feel would be in  the best interests of the irrigation-  ists. But the money is to go out  in loans, not in gifts."  It is not the intention of the water  department to arrange for a special bond issue for the irrigation  fund. Instead, the money will be  obtained from the consolidated revenue fund of the province as required by the department. The  minister believes that with half a  million dollars to insure he will be  able to give absolute protection to  the water users against the breaking down of their sys'ems.  Hon. Mr. Pattullo has already announced that he is chiefly concerned wilh the needs of the actual  water users. The government does  not propose to protect the liabilities  of the companies, he has pointed  out. Any loans it may make will  probably therefore be to the users  themselves, to become a first charge  upon their lands.  Kelowna Troop  Troop First;  Sell Last  Edited by Pioneer.    Feb. 5, 1918  ORDERS by command for week  ending February 16, 1918.  DUTIES: Orderly patrol for  week Beavers ; next for duty, the  Wolves.  PARADES : The combined troop  will parade at the club-room on  Wednesday and Saturday, the 13th  and l^th of February, at 7.15 and  2.15 respectively.  Our thanks to Scout B. Davis for  the following additions lo the library : "Otters to the Rescue"; "Boy  Scouts on the Yukon"; "The Boy  Pilot of the Lakes"; "Comrades on  the Saddle"; and "The Boy from  the Ranch."  We have now 37 reading books,  in addition to several books dealing with different branches of scout  work.  Books can be borrowed for a  maximum period of two weeks from  ihe librarian P.L.Parkinson. If any  book is kept over that time, the  scout in default will have to forego  the use of the library for one month,  and an additional month for every  week after the first two weeks he  is in default. Books damaged or  lost will have to be replaced.  To any of our friends who are  thinking of giving us books we  might say that those which are  historical as well as being good  yarns are the best, such as Ballan-  tyne, Henty 6tc,  As the minimum age limit d  3couts is now 12, books of the  nursery rhyme variety are not suit  able ; we have not however received any of this latter description.  Also we might say there are many  writers these days who in order to  ensure the sale of their book, add  the words "Boy Scouts" to the titlr  in some way, and frequently the  title is the best part of the book.  We point this out to vou in case  you are ever presenting your own  boy friends or relatives with  book; because a book has "Boy  Scouts" in its title it is not necessarily  a good book, but is sometimes  absolute rubbish.  Okanogan Ambulance League    Water Notice  The following articles valued at  $315, were forwarded from Kelowna to Red Cross headquarters  during the past month by the  League: 36 suits pyjamas, 36  shirts, 36 ties, 162 pairs of socks,  I pair bed sox, 22 hot water bags.  25 personal property bags, 64  stretcher caps, 84 handkerchiefs,  48 towels, 6 suits vermin proof  underweai.

Rowcliffe,  Grote Stirling, Burne, DuMoulin,  $5, donation 75c, Miss Dykes  $ 1.25, Cannery Bonus 99c, Contribution basket, 45c.J. Ball $1. T.O.  Brown $ I, Sale of Recipes (Miss  Francis) $1, Mrs. C. Wilson $1,  Mrs. R, H. Brown $6, Prisoners of  War teas $40, Willits & Co. $3.90,  Mrs. A. Wilson $3, Mrs. Cameron  35c, Mrs. Simpson $2. These  subscriptions together with a balance from December of $138.76.  totalled $238.96; the expenses for  the month were $163.96, which  leaves in hand a balance of $74.99.  Canadian offices of United States  railroads are to be closed under  Secretary McAdoo's orders.  The British transport Aragon  was torpedoed and sunk in thi  East Mediterranean on December  30. Six hundred lives were lost.  A destroyer rescuing the victims  was also sunk.  At the convention ot the B. C.  Federation of Labor just held  Vancouver Mr. Pettipiece declared  that he had good reason to believe  that a provincial general election  will be held during the next three  months.  STORAGE  Province Will Aid Seed  Growers  In going over the troop books up  to the end of January, we find that  the sum of $46.50 is owing in subscription arrears by the present  members of the troop, and from  those who have left the troop during the past year and a half, there  is a balance owing of $70.80. There  are still fuaher arrears owing from  those who left the troop before  that.  We ask all scouts past and present, to make an earnest effort to  assist us in collecting these arrears  immediately. Our bank balance is  now down to adout $20. We had  hoped to make a liberal donation  from the proceeds of our last concert, to one of the local patriotic  funds, but it is hardly consistent to  do that and at the same time run  into debt ourselves. If our arrears  of subscriptions are only paid however, we shall be in a very flourishing condition financially.  We are certainly glad to see that  the cubs have reached thc strength  of 36, which we believe is numerically the largest pack in the province. The cubs are going to put  on at least 3 and possibly 4 items  at our concert this year.  Take notice that Thomas Bulman, W. J.  Tupper and estate of J. Stewart Tupper,  Michael Hereron, Rev, P. S.

By THOS. BULMAN, Agent.  The date of the first publication of thia  notice ia Thursday, January 31st, 1918.  11.15  It is announced that a large MM '  of the famous Hawarden estaftjf  where William Ewart Gladstone  lived most of his life, is to be sold  because of the high taxes and the  burden of a large debt.  Announcement has been made  from the provincial department of  agriculture that legislation would  be introduced at the coming session tor the protection of farmers  entering upon seed-growing. A  provincial seed-growers' association was formed last week and  Hon. John Oliver, minister o  agriculture, has promised to pn  vide $1000 in the next annual e  timates to assist the organization  The department proposed to do  all it could to help the new industry, believing that within' a few  years British Columbia will become the great seed growing province of the Dominion, furnishing  seeds not only to the rest of Canada, but also to many foreign  countries.  The agricultural department intends to give every assistance to  the staff members of the University  of British Columbia as well as to  Dominion officials, who are now  investigating the seed - growing  prospects of the province. The  Dominion Government has already  agreed to contract for seeds grown  in B.C., paying fixed prices. It  was announced some weeks ago  that the Dominion seed warehouse  Aucti  ion  Sale  OF  We had a splendid turn out of  the troop at the parade on Tuesday  of last week, there being only two  absentees, but in case we might be  feeling too good as a result of this  the attendance at Saturday afternoon's parade was as bad as Tuesday's was good.  We have to try and borrow or  rent an old piano to practice our  singing and gymnasium drill for  the concert, and we shall be glad  to hear of any assistance anv of our  friends can give us in locating one.  containing B.C grown seeds, would  probably be placed at Penticton.  In order to provide against cross-  fertilization, the government will  bring in legislation to protect those  farmers who are starting upon the  production of seeds for tha Dominion. One feature of this legislation, for instance, will be that if  a seed farmer is producing turnip  seed ot a certain variety no other  grower will be permitted to grow  turnip seed of any other variety  within 1000 feat of him.

Fate of Stored Onions  (Oeotlsaaal tree, Pase 1.)  that he had endeavoied to secure  information (rom Mr. Robertson  and the Food Committee which  would be of uae to the farmers in  making their plans (or the coming  season's crops. He had told the  committee that (armera must know  within a few weeks what waa expected of them in regard to production and whether there would  be any contracts given out (or  evaporated products. According  to the committee there were no  contracts in sight at the present  time, and little prospect of any  until later in the year. The Dominion Food Controller had been in  communication with Lord Rhodria  on this very matter by no satisfactory information could be obtained.  An interesting (act in connection  with this was that the French government had arranged to hand  over 20,000 acrea of land in France  to be used by the British army in  growing vegetables, and a similar  plan was being followed in England where 100,000 acrea waa to  be cultivated by the soldiers. This  was probably one of the reasons  why there were no contracts to be  got for evaporated vegetables.  Messrs. Taylor and Reekie gave  some information which they had  gathered regarding the food aitua-  tion generally. Few people rea  lized the. seriousness ot the situ*  tion in the Old Country and France  and though the markets might be  uncertain, farmera ahould endeavor to produce as freely as possible  even at the risk of having some  left on their hands. It was their  patriotic duty to see that there was  no shortage.  Turning to a discussion of the  labor situation, Mr. Taylor told of  the opposition put up by the labor  uniona at the coast and elsewhere  against the getting in of indentured Chinese,  end he felt pretty euro ths scheme could  not be carried out. He believed the opposition arose from a misunderstanding of  what the farmers wanted, tha labor men  evidently thinking that tha farmers wanted  cheap labor so ae to maks all tho profit  they could for themselves. However, he  believed the agitation had dona good in  ahowing what the labor nseds of ths district were, snd use would have to bo mads  of every other source of help.  Discussion turned Inter upon relations  with local oriental labor. The statement  was made that they were holding out (er  unreasonably high rates of wages, and  that in signing up crop-sharing contracts  for this yssr demands were being mods  by orientals for sixty per sent., tha fanner  gitting only forty par cent, instead of tho  customary fifty-fifty division as heretofore.  Mr. K. Iwashita, who was present, made  an emphatic dsnial of this so far ss iho  tips were concerned. His countrymen,  a said, had never mads any attempt to  take advantage of tho scarcity of labor,  and did not deserve to bo included in any  sweeping etstemente of the kind.  . The proposal to put fish screens st ths  intakes of irrigation ditches wae'also discussed, and a resolution passed opposing  auch a course, and asking that tha clsuss  requiring it bo removed from tho Act  A resolution was psased ssking for the  appointment of tha provincial constable as  brand inspector, to watch case of stock  being shipped out oe a check upon tho  theft of cattle which had been going on  for some time.

Printed Butter  Wrappers  Accord in g to tho new  Dominion Government  regulations all farmera  who sell butter either  to tho stores or privately, srs required to have  it properly covered in  a wrapper on which  MUST appear in prominent letters the words  "DAIRY BUTTER."  Ths fact is also em-  phaaiied that all butter  in such packagoa must  be of the full net weight  of eistoen ounces, and  ia default of asms s  fine of from $10 te $30  for each offence is imposed. Whey butter  must bo so labelled  even when mixed with  dairy butter, and dairy  butter retains ita label  though it be mixed  with ths creamory product.  You can be supplied  with neatly - printed  wrappers for your  butter atthe Kelowna  Record Office, for the  following prices:  1WMT����Sra$l.50  200  500  1000  ����  Z.00  3.15  4.50  These prices include Both the  Paper, which is the best obtainable  for the purpose, and the Printing  ' of same.   Please note this.  Owing to the extraordinary rise in the price o( butter  parchment (which has gone up over 100 per cent) we  have been reluctantly obliged to raise our prices slightly.  Nearly all thia paper waa previously manufactured in Belgium, and needless to aay this supply has been entirely  cut off. Unfortunately there is no guarantee against further increases, indeed, they are more than likely.  Kelowna ^Record  *?���*��*  /
