JCELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1916.-6 PAGES  1 f i  tl JO Per Annum  Regular Meeting of  the City Council  Council Consider   Resolution  From Penticton-Court of Revision to be Held Mpnday  At the meeting of the city coun  cil held last Friday morning, con-j  sideration was given to a communication from the Penticton Board  ol Trade dealing with the proposed  Transprovincial Highway," the  completion of which would lurniah  communication for automobile  tourists with the prairie provinces  and also-open up road communication rorh the interior to the  coaat. Only two short stretches of  the road remained to be constructed and the Vancouver. Board of  Trade had lately been stirring up.  an agitation.' to' have the government finish these.  "Within the- past few weeks,"  stated the letter from Penticton  addressed to the council, "you have  doubtless received, a resolution  from the Vancouver Board of  Trade with regard to the 'early  completion of the Hope-Princeton  Road.  ''With this resolution we have no  quarrel. It is a necessary road.  But it may be that "you are not  aware that the Transprovincial  Road crosses the Okanagan Valley  at a point close to the International  Boundary line where there is comparatively no development. Unless touring motorists were to make  a wide detour to the north they  would not see the developed section of the Okanagan Valley at all.  "In this connection this Board  haa a counter proposal to make to  this effect: That between Kere-  meos and Rock Creek the route  of ths road should be changed.  Instead of running through Richter'a Lqwer Pass, through Osoyoos  'and then up that notorious steep  aand hill, climbing Anarchist  mountain, that froth Keremeos th'  the rpad should run via Marron  Lake-'eleven hundred feet lower  than the road running via Clarke's^  and completed all but a few milea  ���to Penticton, and then up to  Carmi on a good hard road and a  lower summit than at Osoyoos, and  .from Carmi down the Kettle River  to Rock Creek on a water grad  On the other road there is a very  ateep high hill on each side of  Rock Creek���the creek, not the  town. A goodly portion of the  road from Penticton to Carmi is  already finished.  "The advantage of the change  is obvious. At Penticton the touring motorist could be easily induced to take a run up the Okanagan  Valley and the other towns might  be expected to reap some advantage. Crossing at Osoyoos, where  there is no hotel or garage, touring  parties would have to go to Oro-  ville for accommodation, and if  they .wanted to take a aide trip into  the fruit distiicts, would he as  likely to run one hundred ind fifty  miles to the south into the American Okanagan, as to run one hundred and fifty miles north into lhe  Canadian Okanagan.  "A special committee is drafting  a resolution which ia being carefully prepared. You may expect  to receive a copy shortly. In the  meantime we would suggest that  you take no action, unless you are  prepared to qualify your endorsa-  of the Vancouver resolution by  endorsing our position with regard  to a change of route.  "We believe that our move is of  sufficient importance and interest  to your district and the whole Okanagan to warrant this request for  your assistance. We should be  glad to hear from you,  "Penticton Board of Trade."  THe council expressed their approval of thepropoaed change, but  desired to have more complete information regarding the location  of the road. The clerk was therefore instructed to write for this nnd  also to suggest that the information  be sent to the two -members for  the district and also to the Minister  of Public Works.

Mr. Casorso submitted iigures and data gathered over a number ol years in  small experiments, the idea being to hnd out whether the lar-  mer could not do better by  smaller yields to the acre under  horse cultivation than by large  .yields under the half-shate system with Uriantols.

One queation which came up for  consideration was that of lady  representatives upon the School  Board. There was no adverse  criticism of the present Board or  its administration, bul the discussion showed a unanimity of opinion as to the desirability of co-  representation of those most deeply  interested in the education and  general welfare of the young. A  resolution war passed endorsing  the principle and a committee appointed to secure a candidate for  a place on the School Board at the  next election. o "  A social hour followed the conclusion of the business, during  which the following programme  was rendered: Pianoforte duets  by Mrs. Leslie Dilworth and Miss  Jones, and Mrs. L.

E. cox  Second Hand Store Water Street  ble distance; the sand hill at  Osoyoos is very steep and a  very hard hill on cars; between  the Osoyoos Summit and Rock  Creek village there are ijvo very  steep hills���one on each side of  Rock Creek; it would cost a  great deal of money to put" this  road in shape, especially the 0-  soyoos hill, which is sanrlv, and  there being no eood road material nearbv: the road between  Osovoos and Keremeos via  Richter's Lower Pass, wo'iid require the expenditure of ���_ grVt  deal of money, .to put it in eood  condition for through tourist  travel.  "And whereas, there is an excellent alternative route bv w iv  of Marron Lake to Penticton,  and then over thc summit and  down Williamson Qreek to Cai -  mi, and down to Rock Creek on  a water grade, the principle id-  vantages of the new '."o.itj being:  That the road via Marron Lake  is almost finished and would  cost vcri' little to complete the  elevation is' low, almost as low  as Richter's Pass and the toad  is better in every respect.

This road would  serve some four to six thousand  acres of undeveloped larniiu."  land ten milea east of Penticton  which the government has gone  to a great deal of expense in  surveying, and which will be  idle until a good road to Penticton is bu It. ^Settlers along  Wilkinson Creek- above Carmi  would be served by, the same  road. It would thus be seen  that this road is a necessity for  local purposes, aside from forming a link in the proposed diverted route ofthe trans-provincial  highway.  "And whereas we believe that  the cost of completing the highway on the proposed route  would be less tnan making ��  good road on the old route;  "And whereas we believe that  an impartial consideration of  the two routes would show  there is a distinct advantage in  favor of the Penticton-Carmi  route;  "Be it therefore resolved that  we petition the provincial government to have the route  changed forthwith, and that the  links uncompleted be finished as  soon as possible; ,and that copies of the resolution he forwarded to the members oi tl.e government and., to the various  boards of trade and other organizations in the province ' for  endorsatlon."  MAGIC ��ap7��j  ^um POWDERi  The Free Trade Lea.rue ol  Canada, which wis organiz*..  in Winnipeg last spring, is preparing for an active campaign  at once. A series* of public  meetings has been arranged to  b�� held during the fall and winter throughout the west.  Tho following platform of immediate demands has been a-  dopted:���  (I) Free trade with" Great  Britain by annual reductions of  at least 20 per cent, of existing  customs tariff so at to ensure  complete free trade with the  Mother Country within five  years.  (a) Immediate legislation  making effective the reciprocity  agreement of 1411 with the United States.  (..) Abolition oi customs  duties on agricultural implements, farm machinery and ve ���  hides, coal, lumber, and cement  and ��11 articles used in primary  production,! and all natural products.  (4) A general lowering of the  customs tariff on the necessaries  of life so as to'securc a measure  of relief from the present high  cost of living.  Those in sympathy with the  movement are invited to send  in their membership or to write  for literature and information  to the headquarters of the  League at Winnipeg.  Census of Germany Taken  The cenaua of the population  was taken this week throughout  the Cerrnan Empire. Formerly  army officials were employed to  do this work, which is repeated  at regular intervals of five years,  but thia time landlords were required to send in the names ol all  persons who slept in their houses  on the night of November'30th.  Blanks were provided for the purpose. The emeus will be used in  the enforcement of the new civil  service law. A census of cattle and  certain other domestic animals  took place at the aame time.  There waa a revolt io Antwerp  on November 30. in which between two and three hundred inhabitants and' many German soldiers are said to have been killed.  The reported revolt was due to a  call upon the inhabitants for work  in Germany.  I VOU will enjoy looking over  our stock of book* for lhe  Kiddies " and older children.

DUTIES: -- Orderly Patrol for  week, Kangaroos', next for dutv,  Wood Pigeons.  PARADES:-The Otters, Eagles,  Wood Pigeons and Beavers will  parade at the Club-room on Tuesday, December 12th, at 7.15 p.m.  The Wolves, Curlews and Kangaroos will parade at the same time  and place on Wednesday, December 13th. The combined troop  will parade at the same place on  Saturday, December 16th, at 2.30  p.m. The Wolf Cubs will parade  at the old school house on Friday,  December 15th, at 7 p.m.  Weather permitting, we hope to  be able to arrange for another hockey match with the Bankers' Team  on Saturday of this -week.  We ask every Scout in the troop  to bring to his parents' attention  the fact that the Annual Meeting  of the Local Association will be  held on Monday evening next, the  I Ith inst., at 8 p.m. in lhe Club  Room.  We shall have our Annual Bun  Feed on Wednesday, the 28th of  this month.  On Friday, the 24th ultimo, Recruits C. McKenzie and 1. Thomas  passed their Tenderfoot tests successfully and Scout J. Parkinson,  of the Wolves, also re-passed the  same. On Wednesday, 29th ult.,  P. L. G. Groves, Second B Davis  and Scout T. Taylor also re-passed  their Tenderfoot feats. There is  very little time left before the end  of the year and we certainly will  not be able to spend the last few  days of the year in taking Tenderfoot Tests entirely. Also, if a Scout  does not try until the last few davs  and then fails, he will probably  not have a chance of trying again.  There will be no exceptions to the  new rules.  We re-print the following from  the November Headquarters Gazette, commonly known as "The  Green "un."  He being dead yet apeaketh.  Before going out to the front,  here, we regret to say, he was  killed in action last month, Captain  H. Martin, Scoutmaster Lingfield  and Dormanaland Troop, and District Scoutmaster, Surrey, wrote s  letter to be read to his boys,  hould he fail to come back. We  are verv glad.Jo have obtained  permission to publish the follow  ing extracts from this letter: ' I am  writing this on the eve of my de-  patture. God only knows whether  1 am to return or not, but should  it be His will that I am not to, I  write these few lines to help you  boys as far as within me lies the  power. . . . Remember boys  that each one of you brings an influence on your fellows either for  good or bad. You will have many  trials, many temptations, but if,  when they come, you think to  yourselves how can I help other  people best, or what is the right  thing to do, there is little doubt  but that you will do right. In all  that you do don't trouble about  what people think, just do what  vou believe to be right yourselves.  D>>n't be goody-goody and just do  what vou think looks good, because  y iu want people to think you are  t! rod, but be just simple, straightforward, honest, kind-hearted,  pure-minded boys, and you will  turn out to be men wall worthy of  glorious England boys, and all  er noble traditions."  -o  In 1914: How many mile* will  it go an hour )  In 1916: How many miles will  ii go on a gallon of gasoline ?  Report of Provincial Botanist  In a pleasingly illustrated book  let, which is much more readable  than government blue books usual  ly are, Mr. John Davidson pre.  ���ents his third annual report aa  provincial botanist for British Columbia. The range of the work  covered is indicated by the chapter headings, which include item*  on the herbarium, botanical gardens, lecture* on botany, experimental work, garden competition*  and reports of the several botanical explorations of out of the way  corners of the province. The  botanical office keeps in touch, by  means of local correspondents,  with as many district* as possible  at all times, in addition to sending  out these survey*. Over ninety  such correspondent* are now on  the list. They send in specimens  of any new specie* discovered,  and report on local conditions  generally. Most of them are school  teachers, who supply specimen*  and data for information for their  classes.  The office also supplied data for  and assisted in the judging of the  home garden competition last summer, in which only children were  allowed to compete. Mr. Davidson also helped judge the amateur  gardeners' enmpetition for- the  Mayor's Cup.  The woik ot the office also extended to an examination of weed*  in- connection wi[h the reported  poisoning of some cattle last summer. Farmers requiring information to help them find oi exterminate noxious weeds need only write  to the office.

Thia ia more  than the total revenue for the  Dominion in I860. For the first  eight months of the fiscal year the  revenue is slightly under $145,-  000,000. an increase of over $40.-  000,000 as compared with the  same period last year.  Expenditure on capital account  was $69,517,000 against $65,345,-  000 for the corresponding period  last year.

The idea was to put something  more tangible before the boys and  girls which would seize their interest and be of more use to them  than a smatter of the classics.  Men in all walk* of life would  be better for a knowledge of agriculture. Bankers, commercial and  professional men would do their  work better for a knowledge of  the agricultural work going on  around them.  In conclusion, Mr. Cibson gave  a hint of. a scheme which would  be tried in the public schools next  year, to interest the boys and girls  in the "Patriotism and Production"  movement. The idea was that  they ahall turn into money something which they had been responsible for growing���it might be  the produce of the school garden,  poultry, pigs or calves. The  schools would thus be helping in  the patriotic movement and at the  same time helping and educating  themselves.  . Mr. Hopkins' address was unfortunately very brief, owing to the  lateness of the hour, but he managed to leave a very strong impression of the value of the stock  and dairying industry in any community. The fact that labor was  occupied all the year round, that  there were no great ups and downs  ot prices, snd that the best of all  fertilizers, barnyard mannre, was  constantly being returned to the  ground were only a few of the  advantages. He was glad to ree  the progress which dairying was  making hrie.  Mr. Hopkins concluded with a  reference to the work of the boys'  and girls' clubs and competitions  wilh which he had been concerned  during the past year, and urged  that every enccuragement be given  to them.
