 **m  VOL. IX.   NO. 51.  ffctoimm ttttovo  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8. 1917.-4 PAGES  90-99  $1.50 P^&*��  ���*>  ���(���a*  Prominent CP.R.  Officials Here Monday  Give Assurance That Apple  Crop Will Be Moved Quickly  Responding to an invitation of the  Board of Trade Kelowna had a  visit Monday evening from a party  composed of some of the principal  officials of the C.P.R. western lines.  The meeting had been arranged,  in the first place, to afford an opportunity for a discussion of the  boat service, but in the meantime  a far more serious problem, at  least for the moment, had loomed  up, and monopolized moat of the  discussion. This was the shortage  of suitable cara for fruit shipment,  and the consequent alarming accumulation of apples in the warehouses, and this so late in the year  when the danger from frost increases daily. Most of this fruit,  which is estimated to total from  two hundred to three hundred  cara, is stored in buildings which  would afford onlv alight protection  in case of a cold snap, which past  experience tells us is liable to come  at any time now. A severe frost  would thus mean the loss of many  thousands of dollars. Only immediate relief in the way of an ample  aupply of cars to move the crop  can avert a serious disaster. Assurances were given that the every  effort would be made by the company to supply these cars.  Only a few hours notice waa  given of the arrival of the party,  ao that thoae business men and  citizens who assembled to hear  them had to be hastily gathered by  telephone. The visitors consisted  of D. C. Coleman, assistant general  manager; Mr. Lannigan, head of  the freight traffic, F. W. Peters,  general superintendent for B. C,  and Mr. McNab, diatrict superintendent. Accompanying them  were Mr. Trautman, of the vice-  president's staff, Frank Lee, principal assistant engineer, and L. E.  Cordle, general freight agent of the  Spokane International Railway.  Mr. J. W. Jonea took the chair,  and spoke briefly of the difficulties  confronting the district. The district had obeyed the advice ot the  government as to increasing production, and now the railways were  called upon to transport one of  the gieateet crops ever produced  in the valley. At a conservative  estimate there would be three million dollars worth of produce to  market between Okanagan Centre  and Summerland, and half of this  from the immediate neighborhood  of Kelowna. Owing to lack of  cara the packing houses were jammed to the roof and produce was  piled in every available place. It  was calculated that three hundred  carloads of produce were awaiting  shipment, besides a large quantity  still out in the fields. He realized  the,difficulty the C. P. R. were up  against in providing extra refrigerator cars and other equipment, but  aomething had to be done if tremendous loss was to be avoided.  Mr. Coleman said that what they  wished waa a free, frank and informal discussion of the situation,  without quarter from either side.  He fully realized that the fruitgrower of the Okanagan had difficulties, and that they were recovering from a period of depression.  They were also suffering from the  effects of the war, and the scarcity  and high price of labor. He wanted hia hearers to understand also  that the C.P.R. were experiencing  difficulties. No other corporation  had been so hard hit by enlistment. Over 6,000 employees had  been withdrawn from their service  by enlistment, and this threw a  great strain on thoae who were left  and on the officers. The company  fully realized its duties and re  aponsibilities as a public service  corporation, and had, moreover,  too much stake in the country to  wish to do anything to embarass  or paralyze auch a vital industry  as fruit growing.  The shortage of refrigerator cars  he said had not been due to lack  of foresight, for they had made  lavish allowance for their building,  A year ago they had voted three  million dollars for 1,000 new refrigerator cars, but owing to lack of  material and men had had to reduce this to 200.   Up to the pre  sent they had only received a  fraction of this quantity.  There was an exceptional demand too upon refrigerator cara  for the transporting of freah meat  from western Canada for the  troops in France.  It seemed utterly impossible to  add to the numbers of refrigerator  cars, so they must make the beat  possible use of what they had.  Cars must he loaded to their full  capacity which would not only be  more economical for the railway  con pany but also a saving for the  shipper, and would mean more  refrigerator cars available. He  also urged shippers to use lined  box cars whenever possible.  He also auggested that the shipping season should be spread out  over a longer period by atoring  fruit here on the ground. It waa  not fair to ask the transportation  companiea to handle the whole  year'a crop in two or three months,  it was throwing too heavy a strain  upon their resources.  Ha realized the seriousness ot  the accumulation of produce, and  he thought he could safely say  that proapecta were good for a  clean-up of this in the near future.  He would have a check up made  and every refrigerator car they  could scrape up sent here to remove the fruit.  Severel of the principal ahippers were  invited to give their views upon the effects  of the car shortage and also as to the use  of lined box cars. Mr. B. McDonald, of  the B. C. Growers, said that if a heavy  frost came it must mean ruin to many of  the ahippere who had their aheds blocked  with fruit which could not be moved owing to lack of cars. At the present time,  he aaid, their own building was blocked  from Aoor to ceiling. Storage had been  promised to many farmera for their onions  and potatoes, and these were lying out unprotected on the ground waiting to come  in but could not do so until the fruit was  moved. There wea alao the tie-up of  capital. They had over 50,000 boxes of  apples packed in their warehouse, and at  $1.50 a box thia represented conaiderable  money for which the farmers were waiting.  He also discussed the proposal to ship in  lined  box  cara, which  he  feared  might  {.rove a deadly remedy. He did not be-  ieve fruit could be properly protected in  zero weather in box cars.  Mr. Chick, of Stirling and Pilcairn, Mr.  Hayes of the Occidental Fruit Co., and  Mr. Brent, of the Growers' Exchange, also  spoke of the huge accumulations of fruit  awaiting shipment, the danger to which  from frost waa increasing daily. They insisted thet immediate help wea needed if  the crop wes to be saved.  The new regulation requiring messengers to be sent with cere of fruit to take  care of the heaters, end the comparative  merits of charcoal heaters and stoves, were  also discussed, and several suggestions  made. It waa evident there wea a great  reluctance to accept the use of box cars,  not only by shippers but els by fruit buy-  era at the other end.  Mr. Lannigan defended the present fruit  retes which he aaid were more favorable  and liberal than in any other fruit diatrict.  There was no intention to put into force  any unreasonable regulation to hamper the  traffic in the Okanagan or in any other  district, it waa simply a question of  making the best of what we had under  the present conditions. He atrongly depreciated the practice of ahipping minimum cara, which waa an economic loss  to all concerned. Aa to ahipping in box  cara, he aaid, there wea nothing else for  it unless the boye at the front were to  suffer from leek of supplies. The company had every interest in seeing the diatrict develop, but it waa no use esking  them to do whet could not be done.  In conclusion he aaid there would have  to be a general revision of tariffs in regerd  to minimum cars, in order to ensure the  greatest amount of freight being carried  in the smallest number of trains. Otherwise the railway service wo'.Id break  down utterly.  LAKE BOAT SERVICE  Replying to Mr. H. F- Reea who presented the case of the Board of Trade  against the proposed reduction of the  boat service, Mr. F. W. Petere, who did  not commit himself to any definite statement ea to whether the proposed reduction would actually be put into effect or  not, stated that no change would be made  until the end of the year. Shortage of  fuel and shortage of men to man the  boats waa given aa the reasons for desir  ing the change. No decision, however,  had aa yet been reached.  In regard to requests which had been  made to hold the boat at Penticton long  enough to make connection with thi  K.V.R. trains, he waa afraid it was out of  the queation aa owing to the number of  calls to be made on the lake it would be  impossible to get back to Penticton at a  reasonable hour.  After a further promise from Mr. Cole-  man to do all in his power to move the  accumulated fruit crop the meeting broke  up, the party of officials going aboard the  Okanagan for the trip north.  Italian Army Meets  Disastrous Reverse  Austro-German Drive Over the  Tagliamento River  The disaster which has overtaken the Italian army has diverted  public attention from all other  theatrea of the war during the  past week. Though repeated assurances have been made by high  authorities that the reverse, though  bad is not ao overwhelming as  might be supposed, yet it has undoubtedly produced a depressing  effect, and haa brought the pessimists to the top once more.  The Germana claim the capture  of more than 200,000 prisoners,  and further Berlin reports which  are not denied, state that the Tagliamento line, which the Italians  hoped would stop the German-  Austrian onrush, has been pierced  in several places and virtually taken. The Italians are retreating  between the mountains and the  sea, from the Fella Valley aa far  as Colbricon, north to Bugana Valley, on a front of 93 miles in  width. Fella Valley begins southeast of Tolmezzo and represents  the left wing of General Cadorna'a  army.  Commenting on the Austro-  German advance in the direction  of Venice, the semi-official Berlin  news agency preparea the public  for an attack on the famous art  centre. It contends that Venice  haa developed into an important  centre of war industries. The city  has already been visited on several occasions by Teuton aviators  but no damage to ancient buildings and monumenta has been  reported. The Germana are already   far   into   the   province of  News of Neighbours  A. E. Sharpe of Shuswap haa  been appointed C.P.R. agent at  Sumrfierland.  The K. V.

The Similkameen Star statea that  there are twenty four-horse teama  hauling lumber and other building  material from Princeton to Copper  Mountain, and that there is more  building going on at Copper Mountain just now than at any other mining camp in British Columbia.

Pte. White  has been through aome thrilling  experiencea since leaving Kelowna last fall with the boys of the  172nd, and a glance only ia needed to see that they have left their  mark upon him. He has seen aome  of the severest fighting of the whole  front, having been through the  terrible struggle for the now famous Vimy Ridge.  He was wounded in the early  pait of May of this year. The  whole thing happened during a  sudden onslaught upon a German  trench, at a village near Lena.  There waa aome sharp hand to  hand fighting during which a hand  RutlartdTsfi  ews  llYoss sat ana .  26x32, and will contain a basement grenade went over hia head and  in which will be installed later  mammoth incubator.

Further live stock to be added at once will be three or four  brood sows and a boar, all pure  bred Berkshires.

For two daya he  lay helpless amidst the horrors of  the front line before help came to  remove him. While he waa being  taken out a shell came and burst  near the atretcher inflicting more  wounds to his chest and right hand.  Finally he reached the base hospital but so serious waa his condition  that he had to lay there over two  months before he could be taken  over to England. He underwent  several operations and though  much recovered he ia still far from  strong, portions of the shell still  being embedded in his lungs, giv  ing him trouble after any unusual  exertion.

A cordial welcome was  given him on his arrival at the  wharf.  Why does Canada Raise Money  by Selling Bonds ?  "DONDS are issued payable in ten or twenty years, as the case may be.  *"* It means that repayment of the money will be spread over ten or twenty  years instead of being raised by taxation to meet current expenditures.  To raise by taxation all the money as fast as it is needed to carry on  Canada's share in winning the war, would be an unbearable burden upon  the people.  It would mean that more than a million dollars a day would have to be  raised right now.  But to raise money by selling Canada's  Victory Bonds means that those of the  next generation who will benefit by tlie  sacrifices this generation is making;  ���who will share in the freedom this  generation is fighting for and largely paying  for���will also pay their share.  www  And when you buy Canada's Victory  Bonds you make a first-class business investment in a security that it absolutely  safe, likely to enhance in value after the  war, and bearing a good rate of interest.  You help tbe country by keeping open  tbe British market for Canadian products  and this helps the general welfare in which  youahare.  w w w  And again, every Canadian who buys  a Victory Bond becomes a financial partner  or backer of Canada in the war.  When you buy a Canada Victory Bond  you give a personal pledge that you are  going to help to win the war.  Every man and woman in Canada can  help to win the war by buying Canada's  Victory Bonds. And Canada wants the  personal, individual interest and co-operation of every man and woman in the  country.  The buying of Victory Bonds by the  whole people unites them in a determination  to win the war.  Every purchase of Canada's Victory  Bonds is a blow for freedom against the  tyranny of German Kultur.  "Every bond sold is a new guarantee  that Canada is in the war to the finish,  until victory is with the Allies and tie  world has been made safe to live in.  Every bond you buy is a new pledge  that Canada will remain true to herself, the  Empire, the Allies and to freedom's cause.  So it is both patriotic and good business to  Buy Canada's Victory Bonds  Issued by Canada's Victory Loan Committee  ia co-operation with tlie  Minister of Fh  of the Domini. :i of Canada.  w  -Wsrn  .'..��� I.- PAGE TWO  KBLOWNA   kRCOM  Thursday, Nov. 8th, 1917  **    PROFESSIONAL AND    ������  *���        BUSINESS CARDS      **  BURNE & WEDDELL  Barrister,  Solicitors and  Notaries Public,  S.

THE VICTORY LOAN  Subscriptions to the new Victory  Loan are to open next Monday  and will close on or before D.rc.  1st, at which date the initial payment becomes due. One hundred  and fifty million dollars added to  the debt of Canada through this  new loan seems at first sight an  almost staggering amount, but when  compared with the amount which  Canada has added to its national  wealth only this season the sum  begins to look small. The rise in  the price of wheat, oats, barley,  and other grains has alone involv-  over $400,000,000 and the amount  of money Canada has received in  payment for export of munitions  and products of the farm reaches  a huge total. The grain crops this  year in the three prairie provinces  have been estimated to reach a  total of $750,000,000. while Ont-  ario alone raised $150,000,000  worth of wheat, oats, and barlev  or an aiavouiti ei*. .1 io the whole  Victory Loan. One billion dollars  would hardly cover the value of  crops of all kinds in the whole of  Canada.  The money raised on the loan  will be expended entirely in Canada, and for war purposes only.  It will be used to create credits to  enable the Imperial government to  continue purchases of grain and  other foodstuffs and munitions in  Canada. The continuance of such  purchases will have a considerable  effect on the prosperity, industrial  and agricultural, of the Dominion.  It is therefore good business in *  large way to make the loan a sue-  cess. It is also good business individually, for the security is unimpeachable, and the interest rate  substantial.  ONION STORAGE  QUESTION  The Coast Markets Commissioner in his current bulletin has some  pointed remarks to make on the  onion situation, which, considering  the extent to which this district is  interested in this crop, it might be  well to give wider publicity to.  The onion market remains firm  he says. Very few of the whole-  salers are storing any quantities  for winter use. This office, Iv  continues, has received reports  lhat a number of growers have entered into a contract with a firm in  Vancouver to store their onions in  the city to their account, to be held  and sold when the market goes up.  In his opinion the, growers are  making a mistake in this respect,  some of the reasons being as follows. Should onions be shipped  in from Walla Walla or California  at a low price growers will be left  with a large stock on hand unsold.  On the other hand it is manipulation on the part of certain growers  and the warehouse man to store up  onions with a view of forcing the  market up. It is not likely that the  Food Controller will stand for this,  and there is every possibility of  his taking drastic steps to stop this  kind of work. The Markets Commissioner can not see that growers  who store their stocks at home can  be forced to sell on the market,  but where a number of growers go  together and store their stocks in  the city with a view to forcing the  market up, he believes they then  come under the same heading as a  manipulator or speculator, and  should receive same treatment by  tha Food Controller aa such.

PARADES-The combined trcop  will parade at the club room on  Tuesday, the 13th inst, and Sat-  day, the 17th, at 7.15 p.m. and  2.30 p.m. respectively. We had  announced a bicycle paper chase  for Saturday of this week, but  unless the roads improve before  them we shall have to declare it  off. We shall notify the leaders  of each patrol in time, however.  Last week, you will remember,  we mentioned that you should all  be seeing that your uniforms are  in good shape in view of, the possible visit of His Excellency, the  Chief Scout. If you wish to pass  for any badges before then you  must hurry, and we shall be glad  to have the names of all those who  are entitled to Service Stars as we  are sending away an order for  budges and stars very shortly.  If any scout wishes to get any  part of his uniform and is a little  short of change just now, we could  give him credit in the meantime.  We have such a small roll now  that we do not wish to have any  absentees at a public parade.  Badges passed and completed  this during this week have been  the Cook's by P.-L. Parkinson;  Cyclist's by Second T. Taylor, and  the Second Class Cooking and laying and lighting a fire by scouts  Clarence and Cunningham.  In a recent letter received from  Commissioner Heneage, referring  to the loss of A.S.M. Harry Downer of the Sevmour troop, Vancouver, he writes as follows: " Since  then the troop has lost S.M. Tavlor,  and befoie then had lost scout  Walkem and A.S.M. McGirr, all  killed; and now the next three  senior members have joined up,  and the troop, is in charge of T.-L.  D. Taylor, aged I 7, and all have  pledged themselves to stand loyally by him and the old troop, and I  know they will do it. That's the  spirit that makes one proud to  serve these boys, and know that  they are our friends and brother  scouts. They are pioud of their  Honor Roll of 33 and have a right  to be."  Below we give Lloyd George's  message to the Boy Scouts' Association : ���  " I feel much encouraged to think  that any words I may have spoken  should be the. means of helping on  the Boy Scout Movement. It is  perhaps only since the beginning  ofthe war, during these three years  of constant drain upon the manhood of our nation, that we have  come to realize the great value of  the movement which your chief  inaugurated six years before. We  all now see the meaning of the  motto represented by the initials  B. P. and which the Association  haa lived up to with such sincerity  and success. I do not think I am  exaggerating when I say that the  young boyhood of our country,  represented by the Boy Scouts'  Association, shares the laurels for  having been prepared, with the old  and trusted and tried British Army  and Navy. For all proved their title  to make the claim when the Great  War broke upon us like a thief in  ihe night. It is no small matter to  be proud of, that the Association  was able within a month of the  outbreak' of the war, to give the  most intelligent and energetic help  in all kinds of service. When the  boyhood of a nation can give such  practical proofs ofits honor, straight-  ness and loyalty, there is not much  danger of that nation going under,  for those boya are training to render  a service to their country, aa leaders  in all walks of life, in the future.  I can only say to all sections of the  Movement, Old Scouts and New  Scouts, Scout Officers and Patrol  Leaders, ' Go Forward I stick to it  to the end 1' "  Cooper,   Joseph   Radford,   Doris  MacKinley.

She is now in hospital.  Mr. and Mra. W. C. Renfrew  and daughters left to-day for Toronto, where they will spend the  winter.  Mr. C. H. Cordy, nf Summer-  land, was in Kelowna' last weekend having finished an engagement  with the government topographical  survey party which has [been at  work all summer on the west side  of the lake.

Lloyd-  Jones; 2nd Vice-Pres., Mrs. Hew-  etson ; Sec.-Treas., Mrs. Knowles.  The cash receipts showed a balance of $417.86 in the bank, so it  was decided to grant $150 of this  amount to the board of-directors,  also to have aome necessary work  done to the dining room.  During the past year the Aid  haa purchased bedding, linen, &c,  to the value of $257.25. Several  sewing bees were held at the homes  of the various members, and one  shower was held at the hospital,  when many useful gifts were  brought in. A dance at the Aquatic netted $78.50.

Next Sunday morning in the  Baptist church Rev. W. Arnold  Bennett will continue his exposition of Psalm I ���" The Treasury  of Happiness." At the evening  service his topic will be " Baptism  what it is, and those who are fit  for it."  A sure sign that the work of  harvesting the field crops is approaching an end is in the daily  exodus of Japs and Chinamen  Many of them are making for the  various evaporators in anticipation  of winter work.  The girl packers who came up  from the coast and have done  much good service for the different firms are beginning to return  to their homes. On the whole the  experiment of bringing them up to  help in the Okanagan hss been  very successful, and it is likely that  still more will be done in that line  next year.  Mr. F. R. E. DeHart carries his  arm in a sling and is besides  nursing a few bad bruises as the  result of an automobile accident  last Friday. Mr. DeHart had  been down the lake Inst week in  connection with his duties on the  Land Settlement Board, and was  returning on the Lake Shore road  with the intention of crossing on  the ferry. In the car with him was  Mr. Town of Peachland. They  were making good time on a level  stretch of road when a cow which  had been leisurely strolling across  the. road, suddenly took a notion,  as the car came close up, to go  back into the road. She backed  up just sufficient to strike one of  the wheels as the car went past.  The impact proved disastrous and  the car was completely overturned,  throwing the occupants out with  terrific force. Fortunately their  injuries were not so serious ai  might have been expected. Al  though badly bruised and shaken,  Mr, DeHart is around again, looking like a returned soldier. Beyond  a severe shaking Mr. Town escaped unhurt.  The following articles have been  forwarded to headquarters during  the pa"st month���33 shirts, 30 ties,  36 suits of vermin-proof under-  wear, 126 pairs of socks, 46 suits  of pyjamas, I scarf, 2 comfort  bags.

STOCKWELL,  AGENT  51-1  Liberals Will Nat Contest  Electioo  The following resolution haa  been forwarded by the secretary  of the Yale Liberal Association as  embodying the action of that Association at the recent Penticton  convention:���  " Whereaa the position taken by  the Executive of the Yale Federal  Liberal Association in recommend-  lo the two great political partiea in  this constituency, that at this time  of Empire crisis it waa deairable  lhat an effort be made to hold  simultaneous conventions with a  view to selecting, if possible, a  candidate acceptable to the great  mass of the people, pledged to  support Union Government, the  conscription of both man-power  and wealth, the taxation of war  profits, the elimination and prevention of further profiteering and  lhe organization of the country's  resources for the su reme task of  winning the war, haa received the  unanimoua endorsement of the  Liberal party ot Yale in convention  assembled, therefore be it-  Resolved, that the convention,  having in view the necessity of  every effort of the people being  concentrated in establishing unity  of purpose and the elimination of  party bias at this time, strong!) urge  upon the Coalition Government the  necessity and obligation of carrying  out the above principles advocated  by the Liberal party, and refrain  from nominating a candidate to  contest this riding against the Cabinet representative of Union  Government, in the hope that a  progressive policy ol adequate  support to our brave men now  fighting overseas for the great  principles of democracy, for which  we have ever stood, will be put  into the earliest possible effect."  Manitoba Creameries Are  The make of creamery butter in  Manitoba this year will show a substantial increase over that of 1916.  On August 16 the 50th carload to  be exported since January I was  sent out of the province. Thia compares with a total export of 21 carloads up to the same date last year.  Each of theae carloads contained  about four hundred 56-pound  boxes, selling at an average price  of at least 36i cents, which figures  out to a total average value of over  $8,000 per car. The consignment,  went mostly to British Columbia  Montreal and Fort William.  The local customs office has  been notified that by an order-in-  council under the War Measures  Act all breeding lambs and ewes  imported into Canada tor breeding purposes are to be admitted  free ot all duty and war tax.  The committee who undertook  the collection of apples for the  boys at the front have been so far  successful that nearly 800 boxes,  sufficient for a whole carload, have  been collected. They have been  packed free of charge by the different packing houses and the  fruit is being assembled and loaded into the car at the Kelowna  Growers' Exchange. It will be  shipped this week-end.  Manager Ballard of the Sicamous  Hotel, together with a syndicate  ot local business men, has completed negotiations during the past  week for the purchase of the Palace Hotel. Since the present  owner, Mr. A. Peabody, announced his intention of leaving Kelowna and returning east there have  been many rumours as to the ultimate fate of the hotel, and it is  understood to be offered for sale  at a very low figure.  Eslie Wilson who left Kelowna  about four years ago for the prairie  is home again for a couple of  weeks' stay. He is joining the  Flying Corps.  Count George F. von Hersling  has been appointed Imperial German Chancellor.  The recent successful French  offensive has forced a German  retirement from Chemin desDames.

The French occupied Court-  econ.Gergney AillesandChevreux-  The French advanced to a depth  of two-thirda of a mile.

A German uprising is in progress in Southern Brazil, completely paralyzing railroad traffic,  according to private reports received in railway circles here.  The strikes inaugurated in this district are aaid to be spreading to  other parts of Brazil.
