 VOL. IV.   NO. 23.  KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY.   MAY 2, 1912.  $1.50 Per Annum.  Meeting of  City Council  Long Discussion on Replacing  of Irrigation Flume  The city council met Monday  morning last, His Worship, the  Mayor and Aid. Millie, Blackwood  Copeland and Sutherland being  present.  The following accounts were,  passed for payment :���-  C. P. R., freight $   4.11  A. Galhamet, work on pole line     16.67  H. Elms, ribbon for adding machine 1.30  W.K. Taster, 12 rolls paper   do. 2.40  Board of Works  paysheet   for two  weeks ending April 27  669.00  C.P.R., freight on car of pipe   166.50  Lakeview Livery, fuel and carting.. 17.50  R. Parkinson, rcpegging Pendozi St. 52.00  ���        establishing   gradea.   on  Ellis and Pendozi streets      69.00  Applications for a large number  of water connections on the north  side of the city were received, also  petitions for cement sidewalks on  Lawson Ave., Sutherland Ave.,  Woolsey Ave., and St. Paul street.  A communication was read from  the Canadian Westinghouse Co.,  stating that they had shipped a  new stator for the small generator  fit, the power house.  Engineer Colquette reported upon the applications for fireman  which had been submitted to him.  He had selected W. D. Stoker for  the position. The selection had  been confirmed by the Electric  Light Committee, and a resolution  was passed confirming the appointment.  A lengthy diseussion on a knotty  problem was raised by Aid. Copeland who drew the council's attention to the fact that some of the  citizens were asking that the old  irrigation flume on Richter street  be replaced, or an under-ground  pipe be installed, instead. The  flume had been removed when the  cement sidewalk was being constructed and had been piled along  on the opposite side of the road.  Personally, Aid. Copeland said he  was opposed to seeing the unsightly old flume go down again alongside the new sidewalk. He wanted  to see the street grade right across  and thought it would be better if  the expense were not too great to  put in a wood pipe from Glenn  avenue to Harvey Avenue.  Aid. Millie asked if the city were  bound to give the right to the  streets for irrigation water. The  irrigation was now run in opposition to the city water and he did  not think the flumes had any right  to be on the street.  Aid. Copeland said the flumes  were there before the streets were  made. The city had interfered  with the water users' rights in taking up the flume in question, and  would no doubt have to replace it,  or put in pipe. Answering Aid.  Millie, he said he would, not object to putting the old flume back  if the users would have it inside  the fence on their own property.  Aid. Sutherland expressed the  view that the council should refuse  to put in cement sidewalks where  they interfered with irrigation  ditches unless the owners were  willing to make provision to  overcome the difficulty. He instanced the south side of Glenn  avenue, where the ditch zig-zagged  several times under the present  walk.  Aid. Millie was of opinion that  they should try to get the flumes  and ditches off the streets altogether. The stagnant water they  caused in places like the one near  the schools was a danger to the  health of the school children.  Returning to the case in hand  it was figured that the cost of replacing the old flume with pipe  would be not less than $250, and  this was considered more than the  city would be justified in spending.  A suggeetion was made that the  matter be left with the Board of  Works but Aid. Copeland objected.  He had no objection to seeing the  residents to ascertain whether they  would have the flume inside the  fence but he did not care to take  the whole responsibility. He  thought the residents could force  the city to replace the flume anyway.  Aid. Millie disagreed. He said  the whole business was in  such  a  jumbled up state that there was no  organization which could sue or be  sued.  The mayor suggested that the  matter be left over until the next  meeting and investigations made  in the meantime, and the discussion was dropped for a while.  Aid. Sutheiland later, however,  reopened the question by making  a suggestion. The residents along  Richter street had themselves petitioned for the cement sidewalk  which had necessitated the removal  of the flume and while he admitted  that the city ought to put back the  flume, they should not be held up  foi the cost of pipe. Probably,  however, some of the residents  might not want such an unsightly  thing in front of their properly. He  suggested that the city replace the  old flume, or where desired, give  financial assistance equal to the  cost of replacing the flume towards  the putting in of wood pipe.  Mr. G. C. Rose who owns property on Harvey avenue served by  the flume, said the council should  not overlook the fact that the flume  was a main one which was used  bv people to the south who had  nothing to do wilh the sidewalk.  The people had had to pay their  share of installing the system, the  cost having been distributed at so  much per acre or lot. He himself had paid $50 towards it.  Eventually it was decided lo  leave the matter for consideration  at the neKtjsajeeling.  Before leaving the subject of  irrigation, Aid. Sutherland drew attention to the fact that the Water  Commission whicK had been sitting  at Kelowna recently had established the priority of the city's water  records. It was necessary, however, for each individual lot holder  (o make application for his own  share of the water. If this was not  done inside of three years his record would lapse. 1 his latter, he  said would probably be a good  thing as it would clear out of the  way a lot of people who had rights  at present but were not Jikely. to  ever use the water.  Aid. Copeland madte reference  to the application for a cement  sidewalk on Borden Avenue, from  from Mr. DeHart, who had asked  to have it placed on the outside of  the trees. He had been to see the  place, and while he did not approve of sidewalks being placed  out into the streets, he did not see  any objection in this case.  Aid. Millie thought the system  was an advantage in purely residential streets, as the city did not  have to grado such a wide street.  Aid. Copeland asked the council to confirm the action of the  Board of Works in having Pendozi  street staked out afresh. It was  now 55ft, he said, as they could  not get the residents to stand for  66 feel.  Aid. Copeland also desired the  council's opinion upon draining  the gravel pit at the sewage farm.  Ihe comii.ittee had found that  when they got down to the best  gravel they struck water. He  thought it would be well to have  an engineer take the necessary  levels to see if a drain could be  cut which would run the water off.  He thought a cut of about 75 yards  would drain a large area.  Mayor Jones expressed ihe view  that the gravel being obtained from  the sewage farm was so superior to  anything they had had before that  the committee would be quite justified in incurring some expense for  it.  The matter of the lane behind  the Lake View Hotel came up  again. Aid. Copeland said that  Mr. Coates had been unable to see  Mrs. Newjon at the coast. He  would be going back shortly, bul  if the people insisted, the lane had  belter be opened up.  A resolution was passed that notice be  served that the cily required to open the  lane and lhat all obstructions be removed.  Aid. Blackwood mentioned lhat, ao far  as he could find out, all the r.ity trees had  been pruned except tho*very tall poplars.  Aid. Millia said these would have to be  cut down too aa they were interfering with  the electric light wirea. The city was  losing power from their contact, which  was besides liable to cauae accident.  Mayor Jones slated that they had investigated the slough on the north, and  found that the water waa backed up by  some obstruction in the A & 1' grounds.  It was this that waa cauaing the stench.  Aid. Blackwood said he had also visited  the place but had formed the opinion that  the main block waa near the Crowley property.  Aa to the depositing of rubbish in the  sloughs, said the mayor, he did not think  people ahould be allowed to make a fill  except with proper material,   and   should  Growing Orchard  Inter-Crops  By P. E. FRENCH, B.S.A.,  B.C  Assistant Horticulturiat,  Department  of  Agriculture  1 he growing of crops between  orchard trees until they reach productive age is one of importance  not only to the individual fruit  grower, but to the economic stability of the fruit industry as a whole.  A few years ago, a lack of knowledge as to the successful marketing of these inter-crops, such as  small fruits and vegetables, together with a wave of enthusiasm  for absolutely clean cultivation of  orchards, discouraged this practice,  [here has recently been a change  in both respects, A great increase  in the available market, and the  discovery that carload production  was an essential to success with  main-crop vegetables, together with  experimental proof that careful  men could grow inter-crops with  financial success and witout injury  to the trees, have materially altered  the situation.  There are, however, certain requisites to success. 1 he soil must  be deep, in good physical condition, fertile, and be possessed of  adequate moisture. A soil in condition to support only the growth  of the tree cannot carry both trees  and inter-crop without injury to  the former. A first step is to get  the soil in proper condition by the  use of cover-crops or barnyard  manure.  The climate  must also  be suit-  le. Wealthy apples thrive^-and  attain the best results in districts  where tomatoes and corn can be  yrovvn successfully. Early vegetables are successful only where  they can be produced in lime for  their market. Some non-inigated  districts are so dry in the summertime that many inier-crops requiring a large amount of moisture  suffer or fail. These points all require local study.  The third important requisite to  sucrerr, and perhaps the most important, is the market. Co-operative marketing is almost essential  in getting a new district underway.  Carload production, as mentioned  above, is often most desiraole.  Given a careful study of the entire  situation, success is reasonably  assured.  There is usually a living to be  made from the land while the trees  are coming into bearing age. Many  crops which will bring good returns can be grown between the  rows of trees, while they are young  but it should always be remembered that <he young trees are of  first importance, and upon their  present health and vigor depends  the future usefulness of the orchard.  The inter-cropping of young  orchards is generally discouraged  for the reason   that  the  trees  are  Munson's Mill  Burnt Out  Midnight Fire Destroys Plant  and Building  A midnight blaze destroyed the  sawmill belonging to Mr. R. Mun-  son on Monday last. The mill was  situated about eight miles out from  town on the Black Mountain road,  ��� lor tt to the main camp of the  Belgian Syndicate.  The cause of the outbreak is not  known. It was soon after midnight  that the tire was discovered, but it  was then loo late for any effort to  be of much use, especially ae there  was practically no water available.  There were some 70 men at the  camp and by sheer numbers were  able to drag out the planing machine from the end of the building  before the fire reached it. This  was the only thing saved, the rest  of the plant being totally destroyed.  Mr. Munson estimates his loss at  about $6,000, and unfortunately no  insurance was carried.  The mill was moved to the  Belgian camp last fall to undertake  a contract for sawing up lumber  for the company from their own  logs, and the contract would have  been filled in another two weeks.  The Kimber which was piled some  distance from the mill escaped  damage.  This is the second time the mill  has been burnt out, the first occasion being about four years ago.  Mr. Munson expects to start* up  again as soon as a new plant can  be procured.  Items from Ellison  (Fr  nrlent.)  Reduction in Freight  Rates on Fruit  With a view to encouraging the  British Columbia fruit industry the  C. P. R. has made substantial reductions in its car lot freight rates  on fruit shipments from interior  points to Vancouver and the  prairie provinces.  Official notice of the revision of  the tariff has been received by the  provincial department of agriculture.  The reductions are said to average over 10 per cent, less than the  rates formerly in vogue and will, il  is conceded, go a long way towards enabling this young industry  to meet foreign competition and  allow a reasonable profit lo the  producers.  The British Columbia Fruit Growers' association as well as the provincial authorities, have frequently  discussed the question with the C.  P. R. freight officials. It was maintained that the freight rates on carload shipments from the interior to  Vancouver were especially excessive, virtually preventing the up-  country growers from entering the  coast markets. The new schedule  will he deeply, appreciated by fruit  growers throughout the province.  Cunlinurd en p.a. 2  Several important sales of country property are reported this week.  Mr. Renwick has disposed of his  ranch at Benvoulin to Ihe new tobacco company for the sum of  $30,000. Messrs. Metcalf & Steel  are reported to have sold to a  Toronto gentleman for $27,000.  Mr. W. E. Mitchell of the Mission came near reproducing the  "Titanic" disaster on a small scale  the other day. He started out from  Kelowna with a companion in his  Ia.gr; motor launch, and had barely  got into deep water when the boat  began to fill with water. Luckily  they were towing a small .ow-boat  behind, and lost no time in getting  aboard. It was quite expected that  the launch would go down will  the weight of the engine, but it  did not, and they were able to tow  her back to Kelowna.  also be required to make provision for  keeping open the natural drainage.  It waa decided to notify the person responsible to burn up all paper and other  rubbish which had been placed in the  slough and also that no more garbage be  dumped there.  Aid. Sutherland mentioned that he was  intending putting some electric lights on  tee pole line near his house, but he added  leat anyone ahould say "graft," he intended to pay for them himself, and have them  connected by a awitch to the house meter.  The meeting then adjourned.  Mr. F. DeCaqueray has sold his  house in town and taken up his  residence on his properly in this  district and is already becoming  quite a farmer.  I ree planting is now in full  swing. Mr. Bulman is having  several new orchards laid out; Mr.  M. Hereron is also planting an  additional nine acres; Mr. DeCaqueray eight acres; Mr. G.  Whitaker six acres, and Mr. J. Conroy eleven acres. Lots of apples  soon 1  The other night as Mr. J. Hereron  was going in the gate he collided  with the running gear of a buggy  which by its condition evidently  needed rehiring. It was subsequently proved to have been left  there by a runaway horse, and as  " Jimmy " is some blacksmith the  horse apparently considered it the  best place to leave il. The horses  in this district seem to be quite  knowing.  Quite an amusing incident occurred a few nights ago, when our  respected school secretary, who  was returning home from town,  called in lo see one of his neighbours. He, as he thought, carefully  tied up his horse and went into the  house for a chat, but the horse  evidently had no intention of staying out in the night air any longe  than was absolutely necessary, so  slipping the rope from the hitching  post she trotted off home, leaving  her owner to walk for once. Good  old horse I ! hat was once Mik  got left.  Lecture on "Bee-keeping"  Bee-keepers will be interested to  know that Mr. L. Harris, foul brood  inspector under the Dept. of Agriculture, will be in Kelowna on  Monday, May 13th, in connection  with his demonstration and inspection work through the district. Mr.  Harris will deliver a lecture on  "Bee-keeping" in the evening in  Raymer's Hall, and in the afternoon  give a demonstration, lire place  for which has not yet been arrang-  d, but will be announced later.

To United Stales $2 00 ptr annum  Adt'ertislni  ales upon application.  Orchard Inter-Crops  Cunrinued from p.se I  likely to be neglected or misused  and the soil depleted of plant lood  and moisture. It is bv injudicious  cropping, however, that young  orchards are most seriously injured.  Extra care should be taken to  maintain the fertility of the soil  by the application of manure and  fertilizers.  The growing of light crops is a  means of keeping the land stirred  when it might otherwise be neglected, and if the grower is careful to see that the physical condition of the land is improved, and  and adds enough plant food to  supply the l"s��, the lighl cropping  of orchards lor tlie first lew years  may be a decided benefit. The  danger is that the fruit grower  might continue too long and expect too much Irom it. When the  orchard comes into bearing, give  it the entire land.  In orchards set less than twenty-  five feet apart the land should  rarely be cropped more than three  years, but apple orchards set thirly  feet or more apart, may be lightly  cropped four or five years if extra  good care is taken.  In irrigated sections there is a  tendency to over-irrigate if there  are intercrops. This, of course,  is detrimental to the trees. Quite  often it makes the trees grow late  in the fall, and they are sent into  the winter in a soft and unripened  condition. When inter-crops are  grown an open strip, free from  crops, should be left on each side  of the row of trees. The width of  this strip will vary somewhat according to the kind of crop grown.  For an ordinary hoe crop the  space free of crops should be  about four feet on each side of ihe  row of trees the first year, and  this area should be widened each  year as the trees grow older. This  should be kept cultivated regularly  throughout the growing season.  The roots of a tree generally spread  farther from the trunk than do the  branches, so that in no case should  crops be grown within a foot and  one-half of the line below the outside of the branches. The drier  the land the less it should In  cropped, unless irrigation water is  available.  Crops to Grow  Only annual crops should h>  grown in fruit plantations. In general, some low growing crop which  demands good tillage and cornea  off early is best. Almost any  vegetable crop may be grown, but  wilh all such crops the question of  markets should be considered be  fore planting any large area. In  any section there is always something in the way of vegetables that  can be grown at a profit. Ihe  kind of crop grown will also depend largely on the type of soil  and the location of the orchard.  Grain or hay should never be  grown in the orchard. They are  especially objectionable because  they do not permit the cultivation  ol the soil nor shad' it sufficiently  to keep it from baking. Of course,  such crops as wheat, rye, oats and  clover, etc., may be grown late in  the season aa cover crops to plow  under, but if grown for grain or  hay it i> too.hard to preserve the  moisture and the physical condition of the soil is not improved.  A hoed crop is much more desirable. The growing of nursery  stock in young orchards should be  discouraged. This crop n.akes the  same demands upon the soil as  the orchard itself, and it does not  allow the variations in cultivation  anil management which were pos-  mil',- when different crops are  grown. Nursery stock is known to  be particularly hard on land, so  much so that nurserymen seldom  grow two crops ot nursery stock  in succession on the same area,  Potatoes may be mentioned as  a crop well adapted to grow in  young orchards. It is a staph  commodity and is often shipped  across the continent, but in older  11 do this the community must produce a sufficient quantity to ship  in carload lots. If early potatoes  are grown, a cover crop of rye or  wheat, or sometimes clover, may  be planted after the potatoes are  harvested. Potatoes thrive best on  the light or medium soils but occasionally heavier soils are  found  that are adapted to the crop. Potatoes require the cultivation of the  soil in the spring and the early  part of the summer, and consequently ire amongst the best to  grow in the orchard.  Early corn, onions, carrots, heels  etc., are good crops to grow as  inter-crops in the younj orchard,  because they all require good cu -  tivation and gene'.illy tempt the  manager to liber.il fertilizing.  In fruit dislricli when; tanning  factories are being bniit, ich crops  as tomatoes, corn and beans may  be grown, as It is often difficult foi  the factories to get n sufficient supply of these crops.  When clovers or vetches are  grown it is well to leave a good  wide strip on each side ol (he trees  for cultivation, especially where  Irrigation is not available, so that  the trees will not suffer for hick ol  moisture. One crop can then he  taken off, and the second crop can  be allowed to grow to plow under  the next spring. This supplies  nitrogen and adds humus to th  soil. Small fruits are often grow  as iuter-cr.ips and sometimes with  very good results. Bush trulls  should never be planted within  nine feet from the row of IreeF,  and the ground needs extra good  cultivation. 1 here is always a  danger of leaving bush fruits too  ong in the orchard. In irrigated  sections strawberries are sometimes   grown    wilh   good   results.  lere is not the   danger   of   over-  uterlng this crop that there is iu  the case of the bush fruits, as the  strawberry season is over quite  early.  Young orchards should never be  left in sod. Sod lands are not only  drier than cultivated ground, bul  they are favorite breeding places  of insects. Mice often harbor in  sod lands, and they often do considerable damage to young trees.  There are a few cases where sod  may be grown in old orchards, bul  It is the exception rather than the  rule. In such a case as a verj  steep hillside where there Is plenty  of moisture available it might be  in advantage to leave the orchard  in sod. I lowever, nothing should  be taken off the ground. The  graBS should be cut and led on the  ground.  XXXIOCOCXJOOOOOOOCOOOCOCXXX)  IN THE SCIENTIFIC WOULD.

Hut Nature's cradle keepB rooking  after her child has lert It. Only the  laud benefits rrom (he rain, and yet It  ruins upon the sea us upon the land.  The treeB ripen their fruits und their  nuts whether there Is any creature lo  feed upon Ihem, or any room to plant  them or not. Nature's purpose (more  anthropomorphism) embraces them  all. she covers the full elrele, she does  no! need to discriminate and husband  her resources us we do.  The animals ure so wise In their  own wuy, such u success, without  thought, yet so provocative of thought  In us! They ure rational without  reason, und wise without understanding. They communicate without language and subsist without fore-  thought They weave and spin and  drill and bore wilhout tools, they  traverse .zones without guide or roni-  puss, they are cunning wilhout Instruction, und prudent without precept. Animal behavior is much more  like the behavior of natural forces  thun is that of mull: the unliuiil goes  along with Nature, borne along by her  currents, while the mind of man  crosBes and confronts Nature, .lr.varts  her, iiiicii her, or turns her hack upon  herself. During Ihe vast eons while  the earth was peopled hy the low  orders alone, Nature went her way.  But when this new iinim.,1, man, appeared, In due time Nature began to  go hie way, to own him as muster.  Her steam and her currents did his  work, her lightning curried his messages, her forceB became his servants.     il  Man's Mauler) (Iter Nntiire.  Man's mastery over Nature has made  him the victim of scores of discuses  not knuwu to the animals below him.  The artificial conditions with which  he has surrounded himself, his  material comforts, his extra-natural  aldB and shields, have opened the way  to the lnvuslon of his kingdom by  hoBts of bacterial enemies frum whose  mischievous activities the lower orders ure exempt, lie has closed his  door against wind and cold, and  thereby opened It tu a ruthless and  Invisible horde. Nature endows him  with  reason,  uud  tli.-n challenges  It  j at every   turn.    She  puts  a   weapon  We are oflen asked il it pays to ; into bis baud Unit she bus given io no  grow inter-crops in the bearing  orchard. There is no doubt but  thut il does not pay. One cannot  expect lo get two crops of produce  (roni the same ground. The roots  of the bearing tre s require all the  ground for the best development  of the tree and fruit. The only  crop that should be grown in a  bearing orchard is a cover crop to  plow under.  Ihe writer does not advocate  cropping the young orchard in  all cases. Where a grower has  sufficient capital to carry him ovei  until the fruit trees are bearing il  may be heifer not lo take anything  off the ground. He haa a bellei  chance to enrich the ground by  plowing under leguminous crops,  as clover, etc., when the frees nre  young than when ihey are large  and bearing. It is sometimes hard  to get a good catch when the trees  are large and shade the ground.  If one is in such a position he  should be able lo have the ground  better condition when the  trees are old enough to bear fruii  than the man who is obliged lo  grow inter-cn.p.. However, we  are not all able to do this and we  must be governed largely by our  circumstances.  Taking the situation as a whole  it would seem lhat the 'opportunities for the small fruit grower are  encouiaging, not only to make a  living, bul an income as well, while  his orchard is coming Into hearing  age. Many men are making extra  laige profits from the Inter-crops  but some are doing it at the expense of ihe orchard. 1 lowever,  this need not be if extia good care  is taken to replace the plant food  and humus which is lost by the  growing of crops. It must always  be remembered that where crops  are growing between the trees,  they are taking food material out  of the soil, and lhat it is necessary  to fertilize the giound well in (he  meantime, so thai the soil will nol  be in an impoveiished condilion  when the trees begin to bear.

Captain Lyons, who was In. charge  of the Instrument, Bald thai he had  found that ut noon every day a gun  fired, and wae anxious to know how  the system worked.

"I take It to the maker In Cairo  and he tolls me the error."  Forthwith Captain Lyons Interviewed the watchmaker and asked him  how he checked tho error of ths  watch.  "I get the correct time from the  gun," said that simple craftsman. And  thus time was told lu Egypt.

KELOWNA FURNITURE CO.  " We Ma\e Hornet Happy."  Justin McCarthy Dead  Justin McCarthy, historian and  novelist, and for many years a  member of parliament, died last  week at Folkestone. He had been  ill throughout the winter and spring.  I lis daughter had acted as his  nurse and had hopes that he would  live to see the fruition of home  rule.  Born in 1830, Justir McCarthy  was one of the most prolific political and historical writers of the  time. He wns an ardent home  rulet and for 25 years was a political writer for a London daily  paper. He was vice-chairman of  the Irish parliamentary party in the  House of Commons.  New Use for Dreadnoughts  All kinds of suggestions for the  safety of vessels at sea have arisen  as n result of the " Titanic " accident. I he latest is a bill introduced  in the U.S. congress to enable war  vessels to bombard icebergs with  their Runs.  While shooting icebergs to pieces might furnish a great deal of  amusement (or the men aboard  United States naval vessels, says a  contemporary, such a proceeding  would be verv expensive and  utterly without results so far as  removing these dangers to navigation is concerned, according to  naval officers. It would be more  practicable and considerably less  expensive, an officer says, to have  the ships locate dangerous icebergs  and tow them to the South Atlantic  to melt.  Stuart Henderson Acquitted  Mr. Stuart Henderson, K.C., who  was arrested in Vancouver on a  charge of embezzlement was lion-  orably acquitted in the police court  after a hearing lasting only about  three minutes. The charge against  Mr. Henderson was that a Norweg-  i in farmer named Peter Gjillstedt,  in October, 1910, gave him $1,1 12  t > fiay oil a mortgage on 160 acres  of land in Alberta. I le alleged  that he received a notice from Mr.  Henderson that the mortgage had  been paid, bul this spring, when  he wished lo rent the land, lie  found that the mortgage was still  upon it. He then swore out an  information against Mr. Henderson.  Vancouver comes second in th  list of building permits  in Canada  for month of March.    Toronto is  the only other city ahead of her,  Premier Asquitli's Irish Home  Rule bill was unanimously endorsed at the convention of the Irish  Nationalists at Dublin. The pa.ty  pledged its support to the measure  after John Redmond had given it  his unqualified approval.  George J. Bury, vice-president  and general manager of the C.P.R.  announced that the president had  decided to increase the rolling  stock of the company to the extent  of $22,000,000 in order to keep up  with the vast growth of the system.  Fifty-five tins of opium, valued  at more than $1,000, were found  aboard ihe C.P.R. steamer " Mont-  eagle " on her arrival last week at  Vancouver. The drug was discovered in a suit case which had  been placed where it could be  carried ashore at an opportune  moment, but the vigilance of the  customs officials who watch th  gangway of the vessel prevented  the successful smuggling of the  " hop."  A shortage of water is handicapping Winnipeg at the present time,  so much that the manufacturing  concerns are forced to shut down  their plants and insurance companies threaten to cancel their  policies. City well No. 5, which  giveB five million gallons a day out  of a total of seven and a-half, is  disabled, the pumping apparatus  being out of business. Efforts are  being made to repair it.  For five minutes last Thursday  morning not a wheel turned on the  Grand Trunk Pacific system. Steamers were stopped, ticket agents  would not take money for tickets,  for five minutes there was a complete cessation of all work as a  tribute to the memory of the late  Mr. C, M.

"Olympic" Had to Abandon  Voyage  As a result of ihe "Titanic"  disaster 300 of the firemen and  gr&asrrs belonging lo the crew of  the " Olympic," sister ship to the  "Titanic" struck five minutes before the White Star liner was due  to sail from Southampton for New  York. The men deseited the ship  in a body. They gave as a reason  for striking that the collapsible lifeboats installed on the vessel were  unseawortny.  A deputalion of men employed  in the engine rooms of the "Olympic " waited on the officers of the  navigation offices in Southampton  to whom they declared that the  collapsible craft on the " Olympic "  were flimsy.  They refused to sail unless  wooden lifeboats were substituted  and also demanded that two additional seamen be signed for each  boat.  The trouble afterwards spread  to the seamen and the trip had to  be abandoned, There may be an  action against the men for mutiny.  The bodies of Colonel John  Jacob Astor and Isadot S'raus, the  millionaire merchant of New York,  who lost their lives in the " Titanic" disaster, have been recovered.  1 he body of C. M. Hays has  also been added to the list of  identified bodies picked up near  the scene of the disaster.  Before the " Carpathia" docked  the New York stock exchange sent  $20,000 in small bills to be distributed among those "Titanic " survivors in immediate need.  The Dominion Government has  made a contribution of $10,000  towards the " Titanic" relief fund.  The total already raised in London  and New York is considerably in  excess of a million dollars and the  belief is expressed that the amount  will eventually reach nearly $2,-  000,000.

Amusements  An audience representing a big  percentage of the theatre goers of  this city will attend the performance of " His Irish Honor"  which Mr. Marks and his excellent  company of associate players will  present in the Opera House on  Monday night, and the indications  are that the utmost capacity of the  Opera House will be tested. This  is greatly to the credit of the local  public for it shows that a goodly  percent have heard of Tom Marks.  The unusual interest that has been  taken ever since his coming was  announced indicates the degree of  esteem in which the Irish comedian is locally held, and is a  tribute to his achievements of the  past. Mr. marks is said to have a  most notable supporting company  this season, including several players of considerable prominence  who have earned enviable reputations in support of other well  known stars, and the company  throughout hnve been receiving  enthusiastic praise, both from the  press and public. Mr. Marks'  vaudeville specialties introduced  between the acts are said to be  entirely new and numerous and are  a feature of the programme. His  engagement promises to be one of  the successes of the season.  The programme at Dreamland  on Friday and Saturday is one of  exceptional interest and variety,  including another Pathe Weekly,  " The Color Sergeant's Horse," an  English war drama, with Don, the  trick horse, as here ; " Chief Black  Foot," an indian story ; a fine sea  scenic picture, and a good Pathe  comedy. The Jeffries-Johnson fight  pictures shown Thursday night  only.  It  would  surprise  you to know of the  J treat good that is being done by Chamber-  sins' Tableta.
