 rtvivm Uec0vb  VOL. X.   NO. 14.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1918.-4 PACES  1.50 Per Annum  Want Sewer and Trackage For New Cannery  Revision in Wage Schedule  For City Employees  At tha council meeting Monday  evening Mr. Leopold Hayes, manager of the Occidental Fruit Co.,  was present in connection with  the new cannery which the company propose erecting. Mr. Hayea  ��� said that negotiations were'jn progress (or the erection of a large  new building adjoining their present warehouse, to"-be fused as a  cannery and pickle factory. As  this would mean a conaiderable  addition to the cityVindustrial resources and payroll,j,he'wi*hed to  ascertain whether the city bad any  concessions to offer in the way of  exemption from taxation or other  inducements to new industries. It  waa the desire to locate thia factory in Kelowna if circumstrncea  were favorable. He also wished  to know whether the company  could be assured of connection  ot connection with the: sewerage  ayatem, and trackage facilities on  the lane to the rear of the lota  upon which option! had been  secured.  In regard to the matter ot [tax.:?  the Mayor pointed out that the  Municipal Act prohibited the giving of arte!, concessions to any  business which would enter into  competition with an existing business in the same line.. The city  welcomed the proposal to establish  such- a new plant, and would give  every assistance and encouragement in its power. It was not  considered that there would be  much, difficulty about trackage  facilities on the lane mentioned,  but the consent of all the ownera  concerned must first be obtained.  It waa stated that sewerage connection to the present cannery and  evaporator consisted of a four-inch  wood pipe laid to the nearest  sewer manhole, the contour of the  gronnd necessitating pumping the  waste by the firms concerned.  Ability to connect with this pipe  would depend upon whether it  waa of large enough capacity to  serve the three plants, and it waa  left with the committee to inquire  into this.  A licence to install two pool  tablea in the former bar of the  Lakeview Hotel was given to Mr.  H. Johnston.  Authority was given for the eity  to maintain the telephone in the  home of Driver Nash of the Fire  Brigade.  The city's application for a line  of credit up to $40,000 to the  Bank of Montreal waa granted subject to an increase in the interest  rate from 6 to 7 per cent. The  increase, the uanager'a letter stated  waa due to the great demands for  money being made all over Canada for war purposes.  A committee which had been  considering several applications  from members of the city staff for  increase of salaries, submitted the  following revised schedule which  was passed without discussion :-  J.

Knowles reported the completion of the new shelter at the  cemetery which would be a great  convenience both to the caretaker  and the visiting public.  Aid. Meikle brought up a discussion in connection with the  welcoming of returned soldiers,  and advocated the provision of a  room where a returned man could  find temporary accommodation in  the event of hia having nowhere  else to go. He believed the expense could easily  be  raised by  Must Go to Jail  or Join the Army  Theft of Hay Lands Young  Man Into Trouble  Theft of a load of hay to supply  his own deficiences in the matter  of feed has landed Nelson Haynes  a young Benvoulin farmer into a  complication of troubles, and he is  at present in jail at Vernon pending  a decision as to. whether he shall  serve the two months to which he  waa sentenced for his offence, or  escape it by waiving his claim) to  exemption under the Military Service Act and joining the army at  once.  Late on Saturday night last he  was noticed taking a load of-hay  from a field on the Vernon road  belonging to Mr. Archie Hardy. A  neighbor suspicious that all was  not right telephoned Mr. Hardy  and was informed that the hay belonged to Messrs. Archie Johnson  and A. R. Davy.  ,  On being questioned Haynea  claimed to have got permission to  take the hay, but later took the load  back and threw it off hia wagon  again. Meantime provincial constable Graham had been informed  and on hia arrival he took Haynes  into custody.  On Monday morning Haynes  came up before Magistrate Weddell .and a clear case of theft having been made out he waa sentenced to two months imprisonment.  He was taken up to Vernon  Tuesday, which was also' the day  on which he was scheduled to appear before the Exemption tribunal.  On his appearance before the judge  he undertook to withdraw hia appeal for exemption, the understand-  ind being that he ahould join the  forces instead of going to jail.  The matter however is one which  must first be laid before the minister of justice, and his ruling is  awaited.  Ship in Pure Bred  Holsteins  A shipment of fine pure-bred  Holstein dairy cattle tor the K.L.O.  company's ranch came in Monday  from the coast in charge of Mr. M.  Hereron. There were in all six  cows and a bull. The cows which  were all splendid pedigree stock  were from the Cowichan farm of  A. E. Bishop. They had cost from  $350 to$500 each.and are amongst  the best dairy stock in the province.  From this excellent nucleus the  company is aiming to build up a  herd equal to anything in the west.  The bul| was a young seven months  oldaristociat from the government's  Colony farm at Easondale,' a farm  which has earned a great name for  the production ot high-grade stock.  He is guaranteed to be a gem of  the first water, and the bluest blood  to be obtained.  Mr. Hereron also purchased some  young calves for his own place, in.  eluding a fine little pure-bred bull  calf.  Stock of this quality is verv welcome to Kelowna, and it is hoped  that more dairy-men will follow  suit,' until the breed of cattle ia put  on a much higher standard.  A wedding took place at the  parsonage yesterday, the contracting parties being Gordon Bennett  King, of Kelowna, and Miss Alice  Myr>le Sheipenlib, of Spokane,  Washington. The Rev. D. C.  Braden officiated, the groom being  attended by Mr. W. J. Tucker, and  the bride by Mra. M. J. King  (mother of the bridegroom). The  couple are to take up residence on  Ellis street.  public subscription or by some entertainment, if the council took the  lead. The idea waa favorably received and the Returned Soldiers'  committee waa charged with the  duty of making inquiries as to  rooms available and the cost of  furnishing.  Government Will  Help to improve  Mission Creek  Many Important Matters Discussed by Board of Trade  The dangerous condition of Mission Creek due to the silting up of  the' mouth with gravel washed  down from above, and the consequent liability of aerious floods at  high water waa again the subject  of discussion at the meeting of the  Board of Trade Tuesday evening.  The unsuccessful efforts of the  Board to impress the authorities at  Victoria with the gravity of the situation, and to authorize engineer  Davis who was recently in the district to make an inspection and report has already been, mentioned.  Mr. L. E. Taylor told -of the experiences of a delegation consisting of Messrs. Benson, Casorso,  Hereron, J. W. Jones, M.P.P., and  himself, which laat week had waited upon the minister of public  works and chief road engineer  Foreman in reference to the mat-  tei. They had urged the necessity  of something being done in the  next two or three weeks if disastrous floods were to be avoided.  A promise had been extracted  to wire the diatrict road superintendent to make an investigation,  but the government apparently  took the position that the only  work they could do was to protect  the roads and bridges, and that  expenditures could not be made to  protect private property. " Thev  were, however, willing to cooperate  with interested parties in a general  scheme by contributing up to  $1,500 or $2,000, if those whose  lands were affected would put up'  an equal amount. Mr. Benson, it  was stated, was the same evening  holding a meeting at Benvoulin - to  see what could be done in this  direction. *  A vote of thanks was passed to  the members of the delegation for  their efforts, and it was arranged  that further action should be taken  as soon as the reault of the Benvoulin meeting was known.  Another matter which came up  before the attention of the Board  was the proposal to' move the ferry  wharf on the west side further  south to Siwash Point, the latter  being a much better place for landing in rough weather. This change  for which it appears the government is making ah appropriation,  has raised a storm of protest from  those residents north of the wharf  who will be under the necessity of  making a long roundabout journey  to get to the new whrrf. A petition against it had been circulated  and widely signed, and forwarded  to the Board. During the past  week the transportation committee  of the Board had crossed the lake  with Mr. Havman to make a personal inspection. As a result of  this visit they submitted a report  which stated that although the  new site had undoubtedly many  advantages over the old wharf  they recommended that no change  be made owing to the great inconvenience which would be  caused to residents to the north.  They considered that if the present wharf were extended to deep  water and protected by planking  down one side it would obviate  most of the difficulty of landing.  Mr. Hayman, owner of the ferry,  did not think this would meet the  difficulty, as autos., which formed  the greater part of the traffic, could  not be loaded and unloaded at the  old wharf in rough weather.  A suggestion was made that a  road along the lake side, from the  old to the new wharf would satisfy  the residents to the north, as this  would only lengthen their journey  b> three quarters- of a mile of level  road, and render it unnecessary  for them to climb the hill.  Mr. Rogers pointed out that as  provision had been made on the  estimates for the new wharf, if it  were opposed now the result  would be that nothing would be  done. He therefoie considered it  better to reject the recommendation of the committee and support  the scheme of changing the wharf,  asking at the same time for the  ahort stretch of road along the  shore to be built. After discussion  this was eventually the course  decided upon.  local Patriotic fund  Issues Statement  List of Subscriptions During  Past Five Months  bi connection with the following  list of subscriptions to the local  branch of the Canadian Patriotic  Fund a statement of receipta and  disbursements is also given by the  secretary, Mr. J. R, Beale. Donations and subscriptions during the  five months amounted to $1909.68  and tlie balance in hand August 1st  1917 was $560.95. There have  been received during the five  months cheques for dependents  amounting to $6,605.99. The general expenses of the branch during  the same period were $34.60, and  there was cash on hand Dec. 31 st  $503.03  The salary of the secretary-treasurer, being paid by the city council, is not entered above. The  amount awarded in 191 7 was $440.  Recently, a few business men,  who desire no public acknowledgment, have voluntarily raised an  additional $10 per month, to come  into effect aa from let November  last. The total remuneration from  all sources, for services rendered  to date, therefore, amounts to $460.  Kelowna has received from the  provincial branch of   the C.P.F. to  date $30,373.97, of which $382.65  has been returned. Since the local  branch commenced operations it  has raised $8,685.97, of which  $5,094.11 was collected during  1917. The ratio of money given  to that received shows a substantial improvement over the previous  period, it having increased from  25 to 36 per cent.  The number of beneficiaries is  203, of whom 138 are children.  The average monthly grant per  family of 3.12 individuals is $ 19.61  which compares favorably with  the'$21 quoted by the provincial  secretary recently as being the  general average for British Columbia.

At its meeting  in.the schoolhouse Monday evening, the whole subject was debated  at conaiderable length, arid in addition  to  endorsing  a resolution  d signing a petition on the same  subject from the Cowichan Ratepayers Association, a strong resolution of their own, backed by telling local examples of the hardship  of the present taxes was prepared  for the government's attention.  The resolution, in asking for immediate relief from the burden,  pointed out that the tax was pressing so hardly in Rutland that  many of the farmers had left or  were only waiting for an opportunity to sell at a sacrifice in order  to escape the excessive taxation.  As an example it was stated  that there was in the district a  small ranch of 7i acres that in  1915 paid $10 land tax. In 1917  this was raised to $25 notwithstanding the ranch had lost 90 per  cent, of the bearing orchard in the  severe weather two years ago and  only realized about $200 last year,  out of which must be paid $25  land tax, $13.13 school tax and  $22.50 water rate, making a total  of $60.83 per year on 7J acres.  The owner is in France, leaving  his wife, fi ur small children and  mother to meet this oppressive  taxation.  The next ranch, 1\ acres, has  had the tax raised from $7 to $25,  although it suffered a loss of more  ihan one-third of its fruit trees two  years ago. The owner, whose wife  is a qualified nurse, added a small  room to the house for the convenience of her country patients, so  that she might be enabled to make  a living while the young trees  came into bearing. The government immediately raised the assessment $500 although the room  did not cost $200.  It was further pointed out that  when the war broke out this district-gave of its men right royally,  with the result that many r'anchea  are without help and when the  government called for greater production, everybody responded, the  v.-omen putting on their absentees'  clothes in the season and working  from daylight till dark. They produced the crop alright but a great  part of it lies to-day in piles or rotting in the city warehouses, there  being no market for it. And further, owing to the dry season and  the irrigation water giving out last  summer, many renchers only produced half a crop and some not  so much. Yet in face of all these  drawbacks and disappointmenta  the government increased taxation  by over 150 per cent, in many  cases.  A further resolution, urging the  completion of the Kamloopa-Kel  owna railway line was passed and  it was arranged that copies be  sent to the other locals for their  support in bringing the matter  again to the attention of the Min  isfer of Railways.  . The Miniater of Public Worki  was also urged to instruct the road  foremen to take steps to improve  the road from Renfrew's corner to  Bailee's as it was almost impassable during a great part of the  vear.  Returning Soldiers  D'Arcy Hinckson, Cyril Weddell, Roy Fallis and J. Fisher  Are Latest Arrivals  Monday afternoon a party of  three of Kelowna's soldiers returned from service overseas, and were  given a hearty welcome at the  wharf by a crowd which had assembled following the signal blasts  of the boat and power house  whistles. The arrival of the three  men, J. T. Fisher, Roy Fallis and  D'Arcy Hickson was not unexpected, announcement having been  made aome days ago that they  were on their way west.  Pte. Fisher went over about a  a year ago with a Forestry battalion  but was unlucky enough soon after  arrival in England to meet with an  accident, falling into a trench in  the dark and injuring his arm.  Though now almost recovered his  injury kept him from going over to  France and eventually brought  about hia return to Canada.  Roy Fallis alao found himself  unfit to fulfil the service for which  he enlisted. Fallis went overseas  with the Western Irish from Vancouver, but soon after his arrival  was laid up in hospital with pleurisy the after effects of an attack of  pneumonia some time ago. Though  he made several attempts to get  the necessary nedical certificate to  enable him to cross to France, he  was unable to do so, and was finally advised to return home. It is  likely he will get his discharge in  due Course.  D'Arcy Hinckson, however, has  seen the real thing and returns a  battle scarred hero, with recollections of some strenuous service. The  famous Vimy Ridge fight saw him  up in the fron* line, and he went  "over the top" with the rest in the  capture of that place. Shortly afterwards he waa gassed; and that and  an attack of "trench feet" have  kept him in hospital most of the  time since. He has to report to  Vancouver in the next few days  for further medical treatment.  On Wednesday the thrilling note  of the whistles again announced a  returned soldier. This time it turned out to be Cyril Weddell a aon  Magistrate Weddell- Cyril too has  been through the mill and ia still  limping from the effects of a shrapnel wound in the khee. He went  from Kelowna with the 172nd but  was transferred to a Highland  regiment which was in aome of .the  worst fighting.  (Oisllisil oa Pons U  R. C. Treherne, Dominion entO'  mologist for B.C., who has done  such effective work in connection  with stamping out the codling  moth in northern Okanagan, intends to transfer his office from  Vancouver to this valley. The  reason tor the change is that the  official's work takes him to the  Okanagan most of the time, and  as the chief fruit and agricultural  production of the province is centred here, it is believed that time  would be saved were hia office to  be established in the valley.  Arranging (or Women  and Ciri Helpers  Miss Perry Here on Behalf of  Y. W. C. A.  Miss C. M. Perry, national service secretary of the Y.W.C.A. at  the coast, who has taken over the  work of providing women and  girls to assist in the agricultural  work of the province, addressed a  meeting in the Board of Trade  room this afternoon. The meeting  waa attended by representative  fruit growers, packers, canners, etc.,  likely to be in need of this kind of  help during the coming aeason.  Miss Perry asserts that there will  be no difficulty in procuring 2000  or more helpers this season, and  desired full particulars. from here  of the number required, accommodation available, when needed,  and how long. It was arranged  that a committee consisting of J.  E. Reekie, Mayor Sutherland, E.  L. Cros., E. M. Carruthers, H. C. S.  Collett. t. E. Taylor. W. B. M. Cat-  der, C. H. Bond, P. A. Lewis, P.

The winning patrol were  one short of their own scouts and  had a Beaver in his place. We  propose to have a series of games  between patrols.  Patrol Leader Calder had a difference of opinion with a aaw at  the Kelowna Sawmill Co.'s mill a  few days ago, and as a result of  the fracas the saw endeavored to  separate P.L.

This was not so eagerly responded  to as might be expected from the  scouts whote motto is "Be Prepared," but nevertheless everybody  was up at last and the work of  the day proceeded The tent inspection wat won this day by the  Beavers, the Wolves being second.  In the morning most of the troop  explored Cedar Creek for about  three-quarters of a mile and re.  turned in an hour perspiring freely  and feeling utterly miserable. In  the afternoon we played a scout  game called "Flag Reading," which  lasted an hour, the Otters and  Beavers ultimately winning, Aftet  thia the usual events followed till  bed-time, including the camp fire,  the yarn at which was supplied by  the Beavert and waa greeted by  loud bursts of applause. " Lights  out" was sounded at 9.15 at utual  nd the guards were the Otters.  They were called in at 9.45 p.m.  The mail and provisions were  brought in Mr. DuMoulin's car,  including visitors.  Friday.���Reveille was sounded  at the usual time and. in the tent  inspection which followed breakfast the Otters won, closely followed by the Beavers.' The usual  routine of the da> followed including semaphore competition,  which the Wolves' would have  won if they had not been beaten  by the Beavers. A wind storm  broke out in the afternoon and  lasted till the evening but in spite  of this there was a camp fire minus  the fire, and afterwards a night  game. "Lights out" waa called at  9.30. The Eaglet were guarda for  the day. The good-eats and mail  were brought by Mr. Rowcliffe in  his.fi  Saturday. ��� Reveille 6.30 and  usual routine.

The annual meeting of the shareholders of the Kelowna Growers'  Exchange is fixed (or Wednesday,  March 6th.  A team belonging to Mr. T. Bulman made things lively in town  (or a little while last Saturday and  came near finishing the career of  Mr. Bulman junior, who waa driving them. In turning the wagon  on the ground behind Chamber-  lin'a blacksmith shop the projecting corner of the rack happened  to touch one of the horses, giving  it a scare which started both animals on a wild run. Ralph was  dragged from his seat and fell in  (ront of the wagon the wheels of  which passed over his legs, happily without doing any serious  damage. Coming round into the  main street the team continued at  full speed being finally stopped  near Trench's store, where some  damage wr-s done to a buggy  standing there.  Mr. C.

Brent Retires  From the Exchange  The retirement of Mr. W. D.  Brent from the position of manager of the Kelowna Growers' Exchange is announced this week.  Mr. Brent leaves in the course of  three or four weeks for New York  in the interests of a western manufacturing company having mills in  Canada and the United States. He  expects to return to the coast after  a few months in the east.  Mr. Brent came to Kelowna in  1911 as secretary of the old Farm-  era' Exchange, and has been manager ot its successor, the Kelowna  Growers' Exchange, since the  spring of 1914. The position of  manager of a co-operative fruit  shipping concern of this kind, and  especially during the earlier and  difficult stages, is admittedly no  sinecure and Mr. Brent in his handling of the concern has shown executive ability of no mean order.  Hia loss to the company will be  keenly felt.  Mr. Brent believes that the prospects look bright for both the Exchange I and its growers, and that  plans now being consummated and  shortly to he announced, will result  in great benefit to the fruit indus  try in the district.  Mr. Brent's successor has not  yet been appointed.

GALBRAITH  Plumber and Steam Fitter  Schoolboy's Idea of the  Land 0' Cakes  A wiiter in the World quotes  the following essay, supposed to  have been written by an Australian  schoolboy :  "Scotland is a braw w��e land on the  north of England. It hat water nearly all  round it, and whitky over a large part  The population is about four and a half  millions, including Mr. Andrew Carnegie.  It has a peculiar language of its own and  if one can pronounce it coherently it is an  infallible test of sobriety. It possesses  considerable wealth, but very little of it  finds its way out of the country. Cold  has at times been discovered in certain  districts as well as in the pockets of certain  natives, but in both cases it hat been hard  to work. The best known exports of Scotland are Harry Lauder and Scotch whisky,  though sufficient of the latter is retained  in the home country to satisfy the demands  of home consumption.  "The national dress of Scotland is the  kilt, which is a kind of short petticoat. In  pattern it resembles a chessboard, though  in cold weather the wearer finds it more  like a draft board. It is believed to have  invented because the aborigines were un-  able to find trousers big enough to get their  feet through. Bagpipes provide the chief  music of the country. It is a wind instrument which is said, when blown, to produce  a tune. On many occasions in the history  of war the Scotch regiments have marched  to death listening to the strains ofthe bagpipes, though it is not known whether  their willingness to meet the former was  inspired by their desire to escape from the  latter. Scotland has produced many great  men among them being Robert Burns, believed to have been a poet. It is usually  denied that he was born in Battersea. HU  most famous poems are 'Scots Who Have'  and 'Stop Your Tickling Jock.' The chief  national characteristic is reckless expenditure."

Effects  Detailed List out Next Week  J. C. STOCKWELL    ���-    AUCTIONEER  Mr. G. S. McKenzie, on behalf  of (the Merchants committee, reported upon the action taken in  reference to the letter from the  Farmers' Institute asking that local  delivery systems be discontinued.  He stated that a letter had been  sent pointing out that some months  ago the merchants had been going  Into ttys question of delivery, and  that while the total coat to the  merchants some months ago had  been estimated at $10,000, this by  co-operation and greater care had  been cut in half, and would no  doubt be still further reduced.  They did not think it would be  possible to make.the drastic change  recommended by the Institute. To  their knowledge no city in Canada  United States or Great Britain had  tried to do without deliveries.  People hed become accustomed to delivery and to credit business, and it wa. not  possible to eliminate either without very  careful consideration. Another point was  that owing to the war many households  in the city were without their men folk,  to look after the carrying of good, from  the stores, and no one would wish et the  present time to impose further hardships  upon such.  Mr. McKenzie considered that the discussion of the aubject had done good and  that people were less apt to abuse the  system. He suggested thet the government might possibly take action to restrict  deliveries ae a war measure, and in that  case the merchants would have no option.  A reply from the Post office authorities  regerding the request for a larger mail box  on the wharf stated thet if the box were  used for the purpose for which it was in.  tended, namely, for letter, too Lie to get  into the poat office in time to catch the  boat it would be quite Urge enough.  The standing committee, for the year  were ennounced a. follow.: Finance,  Messrs. DuMoulin, Rees, and McKenzie  Resolutions, Messrs. Rogers, DuMoulin  end Ruffell: Merchants, Messrs. Meikle.

Ballard who wa. elected e  new member, pointed out thet the govern  ment was considering making a new port  of entry for customs business in the valley  end .recommended the Board to take up  the matter with a view to getting it here.  At present ell business through the valley  is credited to Revelstoke.  SYNOPSIS 0�� COAL MINING  BEQULATIONS  doe) arista rigkta ol tks taljiisar te "aa-  lloca.

Printed Butter  Wrappers  According to tha new  Dominion Government  regulations all farmer*  who sell butter either  to iho stores or privately, are required to have  it properly covered in  a wrapper on which  MUST appear' in prominent letters the'words  "DAIRY BUTTER."  The fact is also emphasized that all butter  in auch packagea must  be ofthe full net weight  of sixteen ounces, and  in default of aame a  fine of from $10 to $30  for each offence is' imposed. Whey butter  must be eo labelled  even when mixed with  dairy butter, and dairy  butter retains its label  though it be mixed  with the creamery product.  You can be supplied  with -neatly - printed  wrappers, for your  butter atthe Kelowna  Record0ffice, for the  following prices:  100PAPI ,l f* ���inting <  INCLUDED <P I ��� J\J  200   ,,    ,,    2.00  500   ���   ���    3.15  1000   ,.   ,,    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 of butter  parchment (which has gone up over 100 per cent) we  have been reluctantly obliged to raise our prices slightly.  Nearly all this paper waa previously manufactured in Belgium, and needless to say this supply has been entirely  cut off. Unfortunately there is no guarantee against further increases, indeed, they are more than likely.  Kelowna Record  >. i
