 ^Ccf!A*����WB9'\  HSfcwsOvr*^  VOL XII.  NO. 5  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY. DECEMBER 18. 1919.���6 PAGES  II JO Per Annum  [C.P.F. Will Distribute  Reestablishment Fund  After a long series of conferences  jthe government hai decided on ita  ���policy in regard to the distribution  I of the $40,000,000 voted hy pariia-  I ment last session for the reestablish-  I ment of returned men. The main  I problem, that ot unemployment,  [ will be handled by the organization  I of the Canadian Patriotic  Fund.  Owing to tbe urgency of the litua-  Ltion in regard to unemployment it  (waa felt by the government that it  [waa absolutely necessary to entrust  f the monies voted by parliament for  thii purpose to aome national or.  I ganization which had the necessary  I adminiitrative machinery largely in  L being. As the Patriotic Fund ia  t thi only organization in Canada, it  I wai felt that if it would undertake  , this work, delays would be averted.  Seek New Industries  for Kelowna District  Through the kindness of Mr.  Roy Sweeney aome time ago fifteen  1 acrea of land at Okanagan Mission  were placed at the disposal of .the  GW.V.A., to rent until 1922.  This property can be rented with  option of purchase. Tenders are  to be submitted to the secretary.  Board of Trade Hears Many  Suggestions for New Local  Enterprises  A deputation of the War Veterans waited on the Board of Trade  Tuesday evetting to' discuss and  enlist support for a plan to introduce new industries into tha diitrict,  Col. Belson, who acted ai spokes-  man, said that the problem of finding employment for returned men  during the winter months had been  discussed at their meeting!. Investigation had shown that locally  60 per cent, of their members had  only temporary employment, which  would cease when work cloud  down f . the winter.  A favorable opportunity presented itself in the fact that the provincial government had recently  aet aiide a two million dollar fund  tor the purpose of assisting industrial research and developing the  resources of the province by estab-  PATHE 1  JBTHIw2w!iW  add Joy m  CHRISTMAS  Your Pathe Dealer  miiQiadiyPby ' m\m  Over Any of These     -;^>  Newest Records  for You  62048���Noal (O Holy Night) (Adam)' ...,��77 Percy Hemus  Star of Bethlehem (Weatherly AdamB) Percy HamuS  221��t���Christmai Bv* In Tha Toy 8hop (Penn) ..��..

Chapman  Pathe Distributors Limited  Winnipeg  JAMES a TRENWITH  Hss stlMtri*  AGENT  lishing new industries in vaiious  localities. The plan suggested was  thst a colonv of partially disabled  men be established with the assistance of the Land Settlement Board  at some point near the city, whieh  would be devoted to the production  of small fruiti. Thii product could  be utilized in the manufacture of  jam, a factory being established in  the financing of which the fund  referred to could be drawn upon.  Tobacco alao might be grown profitably on auch amall holdings. The  assistance and support of tbe  Board was sought in locating suit-  able land for saeh holdings, and  in drawing up concrete proposals  to be submitted to the Land Settlement Board.  The suggestion gave rise to a  lengthy discussion on the subject  of growing small fruits tor cannery  purpoaei Mr. E. L. Gross, manager of the Dominion Canners, said  that little jam had been made  locally as it had been impossible  to get the product necessary. His  company were open to contract  for all the small fruits which.could  be brought in, but at present there  was not enough of it to warrant  the expense of installing machinery  for jam making.  Reference wai made to the difficulty of obtaining labor for small  fruit picking. Mr. Knowles main-  tainedthat although this might hsve  been true some years ago, the labor  aituation wai now changing, apr  an*!81  the girla who come here in large  number! for apple picking, might  easily be brought earlier to gather'  the small fruiti.  The tobacco industry was alio  considered aa a likely local undertaking. Mayor Sutherland suggested that returned men. might be  trained as cigar makers when a  factory could be established at  time.  Beet augar, pickles, brooms,  cement works, re-opening the brick  yard, &c, were all discussed as  feasible projects-  It waa finally decided that a  committee of three should be |ap.  pointed to act with the G.W.V.A.  in the meantime and it "is likely  that a suggestion made by Mr. J.  W. Jones will be carried out, and  the committee made a permanent  industrial committee of the Board.  Messrs. Bond, Maxwell and Schofield were present on behalf of the  Rutland farmers and promised to  assist the returned men in any  scheme which might be undertaken.  Mr. Schofield mentioned that  the Rutland farmers at a recent  meeting had decided to ask the  government to establish a fumigating atation for treea and plant! in  the Okanagan in order to avoid the  loss and delay caused by nursery  stock having to go to Vancouver.  Another matter in which the  returned men were interested was  that of housing, concerning which  Mayor Sutherland undertook to  explain the city's attitude. The  G.W.V.A. had asked that the council endeavor to get the government  grant for this purpose increased.  There was a mistaken idea, Mr.  Sutherland laid, that the money  was a donation from the government. It -was simply a loan which  had' to be repaid at 5 per cent, interest. The council had talked the  matter over and while they agreed  that there wai a moral obligation  to provide homes for disabled soldiers and widows, unable to get  them otherwise, any general housing scheme under the conditions  impoied would be a doubtful undertaking. He did not think any  good would come of offering such  artificial assistance to immigration  into the city. It would be different  if we had more industries but there  waa already unemployment. The  kind of new population the city  needed were people with money  whoswould build their own homes  and help to carry the burden of  taxation.  A resolution from the Ellison  United Farmera and ont submitted  by the resolutions committee of the  Board, both dealt with the necessity of urging forward the construction of the Kamloops-Kelowna  branch railway in order to be  ready for the 1920 crop and avoid  the loss due to lack of transportation facilities. -.  A resolution from Nelson aubmitted for endorsation asking for  continuance of the daylight-saving  plan provoked some discussion.  Mr. Hereron 'declared the farmers  did not want daylight saving and  moved that the resolution be not  endorsed.   This motion, however,  Plan Minimum Wage  (or Women Workers  Regulations Might Be Doubtful Benefit to Women in  Fruit Industry  The Minimum Wsge Board ap.  pointed under the authority of  recent legislation to establish a  minimum wage for women worker! throughout the province, hai  lately turned its attention to the  fruit and canning industry and is  gathering data relative to the employment of wotien in the canning  and packing industries. With this  end in view a conference was held  in the Board of Trade roum Wed-  neaday. The membera of the conference had been appointed to  represent the employer!, the employee!, and the general public.  E. L. Croii. of the Dominion Canners, Kelowna, J. S. Reekie, engaged in the pic! le industry at  Vancouver, and H. Beach, of Mis-  lion, represented the employers,  Mrs. A. Irwin, of Vancouver, Mrs.  Margaret Paul and Miss Ruth  Blair, of Kelowna, the employee*,  'Aland Mrs. Paul Smith, New Westminster, Mrs. Cleland. of Penticton, and Prof. Odium,-of Vancouver, the public. Mra. J. H. Mac-  Gill of the Minimum Wage Board,  presided.  I Three sessions were held at  which evidence was taken relative  Jo the cost of living for girls and  omen in the district and lhe hours  ^nd conditions of .work in th"  canneries and evaporators generally, Representatives from the different packing establishments as  well as some of the women employees, were invited to attend to  give information which was all  carefully noted down for the guidance of the Minimum Wage Board  when it meets in Vancouver.  Local opinion generally does not  aeem to favor any attempt to impose regulations which while not  benefitting the emyloyees in any  way, might prove a serious hinder-  ance to an industry whichl'is governed largely by variable weather  and crop condition!. The following resolution submitted bv Mr. W.  A. Pitcairn of Stirling &l"Pitcairn.  Ltd., and president of the Board  of Trade, probably expreasei very  closely the view of all concerned:���  Whereas the statute ordains that it  ia "expedient and necessary'' that a  minimum wage be established for  women workers ; and whereaa in the  fruit and vegetable industry in tha  Okanagan Valley the establishment  of a minimum wag* would serve no  useful purpose; aud whereaa the  houra of labor  mutt necessarily be  Soverned by conditions attaching to  uctuating harvesting operations; and  whereaa there ha* been no general  demand on the part of either em.  plovers or employees in tha paat, nor  it there now, for anv regulations; and  whereaa the relations existing between  employees and employers hav*/alwayt been pleasant and, cordial; and  whereaa any regulationa made by the  government might have an effect prejudicial to the continued employment  of woman in the industries here at all;  and whereas regulationa for women  would have an unsettling effect on  male labor subsequently leading to  discontinuance of Doth men and women workers; and whereaa the wagea  paid hitherto have bean far beyond a  living wage ; and whereaa overtime  work ia alway optional to employees;  therefore be it resolved that the ea.  tablishment of a minimum wage and  fixed hour* of labor for women work-  era it neither " necessary nor exped.  Unt"  was defeated, the Board thus in an  indirect way supporting the scheme  Delegates were appointed to attend the meeting this week of the  Associated Boards of Trade in  Kelowna aa a preliminary to the  coming convention at the coast,  and plans were discussed for the  entertainment of the delegates  coming from other point! in the  valley,  Mr. F. R. E. DeHart broached a  scheme for the holding of an apple  ahow'at Regina, Brandon or Winnipeg. He pointed out the great  advertising benefit! which had accrued to the diitrict from tne previous apple shows at Spokane and  Vancouver, and consideied the  time ripe for another effort along  that line. The CP.R., he said,  were willing to get behind any  such undertaking and assistance  had been promiied from varioui  quarters.  Kelowna Creamery  Wins New Honors  Manager Thomas Chief Prize  Winner in Dairymen's  Competition  The Kelowna Creamery and its  manager, Mr. S. J. Thomas, have  won new honors in the second annual butter competition carried on  by the - B.C. Dairyman's Association, and which has recently been  judged and the awards placed. In  the five classes for which prizes  were offered, representing butter  of the months of June, July, August, September and October, Mr.  Thomas has won two firsts of $20  each, one second of $15 and two  thirds of $ 10, carrying off a prize  in every class. In addition Mr.  Thomas wins the gold watch for  the best average for June, July and  August and the silver medal in the  season's championship  The 1919 competition was carried out along very aimilar lines to  that of the previoui year, and wai  open to all British Columbia creameries. Entries consisted of one  14-lb. box of butter, solid packed,  ���alted, to be made between the  lat and 15th of each month, and  aent to the -old itorage ai directed  Maths leer    n-itl.     than the  20th of the month to be held there  until judged at the end Jof the  seaion.  By extending the competition  over a number of monthi, an opportunity waa afforded to ascertain the relative keeping qualitiea  of the butter 'put up during the  different months of the season,  and at the different creameries.  It is proposed by the association  to hold repreaentative boxea of the  butter over until the time of their  annual convention which will be  held in Vancouver on January 20  to 22, 1920, in order to give the  coTip-'tirirs and other creamery-  men of the province an opportunity to study and compare them. It  is also 'proposed to arrange for  that occasion a butter judging competition of comparing their skill aa  judges of butter with that of the  official judges Jof the competition,  and thii in itself will be of conaiderable educational advantage,  in that it will tend to fix uniform  grade standards for butter accord -  ing to present day market requirements in British Columbia. A  generous prize lilt for winners in  thii competition will be arranged.  Sir Robert Borden  Will Shortly Retire  Sir Robert Borden is reported to  be retiring from the premiership  early in the new year. Three  names are prominently mentioned  for the leadership: Hon. Arthur  Meighen, Hon. J. A. Calder, and  Sir Thos. White.  G. W. V. A. Notes  Three thouiand dollar! has been  allotted to the G.W.V.A ai a firat  instalment of the Memorial Fund.  This will pay the balance owing on  the building of $2000, and the coat  of alteration!. Thii will be about  $1,600. of which $700 hai been  paid to the contractor! by the  Veterana' Building Co, Ltd. It is  expec ed that after providing for  the memorial stone that there will  be between $2,000 and $3,000  more for the G.W.V.A. Thii will  completely free the Association  from debt and interest charges.  The Provincial command at their  ast meeting appointed a sub-committee lo enquire into complaints  and investigate the working of the  Act. Any complaints or suggestions  sent to the secretary for improvement of same will be forwarded.  The secretary reports that the  GW.V.A. has been aaked to recommend a local man for field  supervisor for the Kelowna district.  The next smoker will be held on  Monday, the 29th instant, at 8 p.m.  A good programme is being arranged.  A full sized English billiard table  haa been purchased and will be  installed in a day or two.  Veterans Hear Talk  oo Cooperation  Manager   Barber   of Salmon  Arm is Enthusiastic Advocate  ol* Movement  At .the invitation of the local  G.W.V.A Mr. G. Barber, of Salmon Arm. came down last Wednesday and addressed an evening  meeting of the members and Women's Auxiliary in the club room  on the subject of "Co-operation."  Mr. Barber ii an enthusiastic advocate of co-operative stores and  has managed for several years the  Salmon Arm Farmera' Exchange, a  co-operative organization which  haa met with a good deal of success.  Mr. Barber gave an interesting  outline of tbe history and working  of the Salmon Arm organization,  which had been started in spite of  strenuous opposition. That their  example had interested other districts was evident from the many  inquiries which they were constantly receiving. At first they had  started with a grocery atore, but  had gradually developed into a  departmental store and now handled everything except fresh meat  and dispensing. They hoped to  include fresh meat shortly. Their  turnover this yesr would be about  $200,000, and their operating expenses about 8 per cent. There  was no delivery and only a cash  business was done. Trade was  drawn from a population of 4,000  and the organization had a membership of 400. The share capital  was divided into $100 shares payable $10 in cash and $10 a year.  All profits stayed in the business  until the share was paid for. Five  directors were elected every year  and they were paid $3 per meeting  and expenses.  A factor in the high cost of living, Mr. Barber maintained, was  theiyix1-- '-{-people engaged in  distribution and Canada had the  highest percentage in tbe world.  The distribution of the necessaries  of life was a public affair and the  profits should go to the people.  To-day the co-operative movement  in the old country embraced one-  third of the population. Co-operative societies in England owned  their factories, bacon curing plants  in Denmark and tea plantations.  People were too much inclined,  Mr. Barber said, to look to the government to reduce the cost of living instead of co-operating to help  themselves. As the movement  grew in B.C. he predicted that  they would have their own wholesale houses and 'finally their ov/n  factories. Co-operative stores had  already been slatted or were starting at Vancouver. Victoria, Salmon  Arm.'PrincetonJVernon, Kamloops  Notch Hill, Golden and Penticton  and he predicted a great future  for the movement.  Did Not Say World  Coming to An End  Prof. Alberta Porta, scientific observer and forecaster, is standing  pat on his predictions that general  meteorological turmoil will affect  the earth during a period beginning yesterday. "The woild ia not  going to end," he said. "Only  those who distorted my original  predictions are responsible for the  widespread fear that the end of  the world has come. 1 never once  predicted that the world would  come to an end," Prof. Porta repeated, "but the Pacific coa-t will  be visited by the severest atorm in  history."

Each class must comprise not less  than eight or more than twelve  pupils, the fee being one dollar  each to take ten lessons of 2J houn  each.  The cojjne cf instruction will  include .lecture! on the theory of  of pruning, budding and grafting,  but the main part of thecourie will  be actual work in the orchard under  the aupervision ot the instructor.  All applicants mult be able and  willing to do pruning. Names of  those wishing to take pruning lessons should at once be given to R.  L. Dalgleish, Institute Secretary, or  to T. M.

Tha Athletic Club meets next  Monday at Mr. Bamling's, when  atrangementa will be discussed for  constructing a skating rink in the  achool grounds. The hoekey goods,  it might be mentioned, have now  arrived, with the exception of the  uniforms, and if the weather ia  favorable, there ahould be a good  season's sport on the ice.  The Athletic Club dance last  night waa most successful and enjoyable, and the large crowd who  were present enjoyed themselves  to the full. Some others who might  have been there were tempted into  town by the opening of the skating  rink there. The lighting arrangements by Mr. Trenwith wete very  effective, pretty Japanese lanterns  being used. The supper too was  very good and well merited the  praise which was bestowed upon  it.  Owing to the extreme cold weather there was not a large attendance  al tha meeting of the Women's  Institute on Thursday afternoon,  December I Ith at Mrs. W. McDonald's home. A great d��al of  business was accomplished, however. The officers for 1920 were  elected with Mrs. Logan president,  Mrs. Hardie vice-president, Miss  Bruce director and Mrs. Maxwell  secretary-treasurer. A resolution  from the Metchosin Institute re  government assistance to health  centres v/aa heartily endorsed.  During the social half hour when  tea was served and Xmaa Gifts exhibited, Mrs. S. Gray, the retiring  aecretary (who has held the office  four years), waa presented with a  casserole by the members, in appreciation of her faithful services.  All present expressed regret at her  removal to Kelowna.  In school! where botany or allied  subjects are studied it is usually  the custom to study wild plants.  Such plants posesa striking flowers  with clearly defined parti and are  well luited to a botanical examination. Plant! like the oati, on the  other hand, are seldom studied  either from a botanical or biological itandpoint. One of the purposes of the new pamphlet "A guide  in the Study and Improvement of  Planta and Seeds" prepared by the  Canadian Seed Glowers' Association, and obtainable free upon  application to the Publicationa  Branch, Department of Agriculture,  Ottawa, is to encourage a greater  interest in this important plant. The  fact that different oat plants taken  from a field may differ very considerably in practical value, and  may mark ihe starting point of new  and auperior races or strains, provides an attractive line of investigation. Such a study in rural  schools, moreover, should help to  arouse a new intereit in farming  and in farm life by demonstrating,  among other thinga, that more pro  Stable varietiea are often obtainable  right at our doora.  Short Pieces for the  Wolf Cubs  Br lbs Old Silver Woll  We had another good turn-up at the  parade latt Friday night and aome mora  good work waa done towarda getting the  stars. It ia worth noting, too, that aeven  boys told the Cubmaater they intended to  try and get Proficiency Badges. Th* boys  working on thair Star Teata are doing very  well and already two have been recommended to bv examined. Stick to it, and  if you can't understand anything ask the  Cubmaater. One boy waa aure he knew  the compass pointa, and when aaked to  ahow where S.W. was ha draw a shape  something like a scrambled egg and made  a dot near the right-hand aide. I'm sure  the captain of the Sicamous would have  an awful time getting to Penticton with a  compass like that I  The Cub hooka are her* and you can  get one for ten cente from the Cubmaater.  There will be no parades during the  holidays, and you will have a good opportunity to practice signalling and ball-  throwing (but oa careful of thewindowa).  The five boya trying for Second Star will  be at the cub room next Monday night at  7.1 J to leam signalling.

With regard to the recent teat of  the tenderfoot work for patrol leaders and seconds, and as a continuation of the list of answers made by  some of the competitors, we should  like to print the following /is illustrations of "Courtesy." The question asked was "Give an illustration  of a scout breaking the law 'A scout  is courteous'}" Here are some of  the answers : "If a scout saw an old  lady crossing a muddy road, carrying many parcels and didn't help  her," "If a boy does not take off  hia hat to somebody," "To not lift  your hat to a woman," "When a  scout passes through a door before!  a woman and lets her open it."

December 18,'1919 f  Important that Seeds  Be Actually Tested  The Dominion Seed Branch with  laboratories at Ottawa, Winnipeg  and Calgary, reported oyer 35,000  seed tests for the year ending June  30th. The growth of seed testing  in Canada ia indicated from the  fact that only 5,775 aamples were  reported in 1909. The great bulk  of the work in our aeed laboratories  is done between September and  June, when each laboratory may  handle up to 200 sample per day.  Only ten samples are tested frej ol  charge for any farmer or seed  merchant during the season.    Over  th a number, the setvice/is charged  for at coat.  Official seed testing is the basis  of Government seed control, which  in older European countries is rated  as a leading government service to  agriculture. Any country without  an efficient aystem of seed control  soon becomes the dumping ground  for inferior seeds from other countries, and low-grade home-grown  seeds may be sold to unsuspecting  farmers. Our system is frequently  referred to in other countries as  being the most practical and efficient. Its importance is now being  better appreciated when it is required that imported seeds are not  released from bond until they are  approved at the seed laboratories,  Buy French Ivory for Xmas  French Ivory:  Hair Brushes  $2.75-$ 14.00  Minors     5.00���   8.50  Manicure Pieces from  -    .       40c���$ I 00  Jewel Boxes fiom  $2.00-$7 50  H rir Receivers from  $2 00-$4 00  Trays from  $1.75-$8.00  Manicure   Sets  in   rolls  from        $3 00���$15  C<c!;S from$5.50-$7 50  All articles engraved   in   Black, Blue, Green, Pink  or Red Enam-I at shortest notice.

KNOWLES  Threatens to Choke  the Baby to Death  Threatening to choke his baby  boy to death, Bruce Corbin, husband of Ruth Pomeroy, returns  home from a year's absence in  South America, in 'The Thunderbolt," starring (Catherine MacDonald and which will be seen Friday  and Saturday at the Empress  Theatre.  Corbin is enraged at finding a  child in his home because he realizes that this means the continuation  of the Pomeroy family which he  sought to wipe out of existence  through his marriage to Ruth Pomeroy, the last member of a family  which he has hated as the result of  a feud originating several generations back.  As Ruth Pomeroy, Misa MacDonald has one of the choicest  roles of her screen career. She depicts the part of a woman bondag-  ed into a loveless marriage to save  the reputation of her father who  unfortunately placed himself in the  hands of his most bitter enemy  through a series of illegal transactions.  How the courage of Miss MacDonald, as Ruth Pomeroy, ends a  feud of long standing and turns a  "spite" marriage into an epoch of  wedded bliss is declared by the  management of the Empress Thea  tie lo be one of the most interesting  dtnaitions to be seen in Kelowne  in many months.
