Building inspector Bigger asked for  instructions in reference to the hanginn  footing the foundation of the brick of gigae and regulations of ohinracya  high sohool building. The other was ;��� the lire limitB. He waa instructed  from the secretary of the Knox Pros- to strictly enforce the provisions ol  bytorian ohuroh, and stated a similar j the by-laws.  complaint adding that the ohuroh authorities would hold the oity responsible for any damage whioh might be  done to the ohuroh foundation.  The flume in question haa been a  thorn in the flesh of the council in  general and the Board of Works, in  particular for a long time, and in lace  of these definite complaints it was felt  that something must be done.  The clerk was therefore authorized to  write to Messrs. Bembler Paul and D,  McMillan, who it appears are the  principal users of the water carried  through this particular flume, that it  would be necessary to have the flume  placsd in first class order before it is  again ussd. otherwise the council would  take steps to have it declared a publio  nuisance, and removed.  In replying to the secretary of Knox  church, the clerk Was inatruoted to  state that the oity disclaimed all liability for damage caused, in the city  by irrigation water, and suggesting  that a written complaint about the  condition of the flume be sent to ail  the users of ths .water.  Few Polio* Court Cases  Tha chief lonwbila submitted his  report for the month of January. Tha  polios department is IvitttUtly' sharing  in ths general business quietness as  there were only 26 cases in all. and  ' these could (tally be stated as 6, as  four eases were included in one raid  on an opium joint, and nineteen in  another raid on a gambling dan. The  other three were drunks, la oonae-  quenos of the raids the fines were large  in proportion to the number oi cases,  amounting to 9191.00.  Fire Brigade Want Auto Truck  The annual report of the fire brigade  cam* up again for consideration. Ue-  fsrring to the brigade's request for an  automobile fire truck. Alderman itat-  tsnbury, who is chairman of the Fire  Committee said hs would like to get  an expression of opinion trom the  oounoil in reference to the purchase oi  suoh a truck.  Alderman Sutherland said he was  certainly in favor of purchasing a combined chemical engine and hose reel  truck, aa soon as finances permitted.  After some further discussion the  following resolution was passed: "That  the thanks of the oounoil be tendered  to the Kelowna Volunteer Fire Brigade  for their comprehensive report, covering the good work done by the brigade during the past year and the brigade bs informed of the oouncil's intention to procure full information' in  reference to an auto truok and to do  all in their power to further the efforts of the brigade."  Alderman Taylor said his attention  had been drawn to the fact that the  street lights had not been turned on  at tha time the alarm of fire was sent  jn from the Boyal Hotel on   Sunday  hut. ___���_^.1^.1^^^^__  Alderman Adams explained that the  lights were being run oh a moonlight  schedule at the time, which would probably . account for their not being  turned on.  The mayor suggested that it might  be as well if the power house staff  were instructed to turn on the street  lights for all night fire alarms, for the  assistance of ths brigade in pas ing  through the streets, with their hose  , reels. M^^^  Bylaws 149, ISO, 151 and 1IB, the  latter three referring to the proposed  change In the light, water and scavenging rates, were read a second and  third time.  Kearrahgemont of City Offices  A suggestion was made by Alderman  Sutherland retrarding the re-arrangement of the city offices, the plan proposed being: to reserve the present  council chamber kr regular and com-  gs,   and   for   the   otty  ���r fii  , The oounoil met again in special  meeting Saturday morning at 11 a.m.  Some items of correspondence were  firat taken up. including a notice from  Provincial Atpeaaor H. F. Wil-n >t, ol  Vernon, stating the provincial taxes  for the year 1914 on lots 35, 38 and  30, plan 186, amounted to SAO or 851  if paid before .Tune 30th.  A letter waa also received from the  secretary of the fire brigade, stating  that they had accepted Mr, G. A.  Fisher'a tender for an insurance policy  covering the members of the brigade,  at an annual premium of $451.  By-laws 149, 150,15l' and 152 before  referred to, were recommended and finally passed.  The ohairman of the Light nnd Water committee introduced two new bylaws. No. 153 to raise the sum of $S,-  000 to extend the electric light system, and No. 154 to raise a like sum  to extend the water worka, These were  read a first time.  Counoil to receive Salaries  -  Alderman Sutherland mode the interesting announcement that at a meet  ing of the Finanoe Committee held the  previous evening, it had Iteer: decide'  to recommend increasing the salaries  of some of the members of the staff,  and also to introduce the question ol  remuneration for members of the council. He pointed out that the question  was not being submitted by them  as a recommendation, but only to  bring the matter before the counoil  for consideration. He said it ' was  a practice which was- becoming general in many other cities, and it had  frequently been suggested by the business men of Kelowna, that the members of the oounoil were entitled to  some slight reconipepce for the time  and trouble entailed in attending oounoil and committee meetings. As it-appeared to be tho general desire there  could be no harm in taking the feeling  of the meeting on the question. Unless  however, the proposal waa unanimously approved, tho matter would be  dropped without submitting the necessary by-law.  Discussing the amount of tho remuneration, Alderman Sutherland said it  waa an established custom in the city  to pay direotors of incorporated compan  lea 35.00 for each meeting at which  they were present, and this had been  suggested as* a possible basis for the  remuneration of the council.  Alderman Copeland said he had  spoken to several business men tn the  oity, nnd they were all in favor of the  members of the oounoil receiving some  remuneration for their work and timo  devoted to the oity.  A auggestion - was mado that the  mayor, on account of the much greater  responsibility and demands upon his  time should be allowed $10 per meeting. Mayor Jones, however generously declined, stating tr.nl ha would be  perfectly satisfied to receive the same  as the rest of ihe aldermen.  The resolution was passed "That the  Mayor and Aldermen bo paid as remuneration for their services, the sum  of five dollars per council meeting, actually attended b<- such mayor or  alderman; provided however that when  the mayor or an alderman ia absent  from the oity on municipal business,  then such remuneration shall be paid  as if he were actually present; suoh  remuneration not to exceed $260 per  annum." To this was added I" that no  by-law shall be submitted for the  purpose of putting the resolution Into  effect unless the resolution shall be  unanimously passed by the oounoil."

The public masting called by  growers of Rutland -was very  'attended. Mr. MoMillon occupied  chair. After Mr. Francis had stated  the cose from the growers' point of  view, Mr. Robertson undertook to explain aome points which were not olear-  'ly understood, but very little new information was brought out. A general  discussion followed, in which the feeling was expressed that the expenses of  I both the Central and locals were far  too greet, and it was felt that none  [but growers should be elected as . direotors, as any other person would not  be so vitally .interested in the practice  of economy, but apart from a vote of  thanks to Mr. Robertson for his presence at the meeting, nothing of a decided nature was agreed upon.  To Bay that sleigh bells have a fascination for the youngsters alone is  not stating the truth, the whole truth  and nothing but the truth! for when  the members of the Methodist Ladies'  Aid Society met at the store on Tuesday evening and climbed into Horry  Elder's horseless sleigh and Jack Flein-  ing'a joy wngon, and enjoyed a moonlight ride all the long long, way to  Homuth's and book to Mrs. Fleming's  for supper, no one within o mile of the  route oould help but realize the foot  that the Indies wero enjoying themselves. When the automobile breaks  down five miles from home, one comes  to the conclusion that the nimble and  slighted quadruped, is not a bad means  of locomotion after all,  A jolly supper party met last evening at "Cosy. Corners" the home of  Mrs. John Brown, and enjoyed that  lady's well known Hospitality. The  evening passed all too rapidly with  gnmes, conversation and old time recollections.   0   REPORT ON EDUCATION  kj. measures against bo-  %e disease endorsed  No^S��^nth>n  ���^���-. . -_���:.  The work of tile provincial government in the eradication of bovine tuberculosis in ths province was heartily  endorsee! by the dairymen of the conn-  try, at tba recent annual convention,  held at Chilliwack.  According to Mr. W. T. MoDonald,  livestock commissioner, the convention  was unanimous in Hs opinion that the  work should be continued. The department of the provincial government hav  ing charge of this branch of work was  highly complimented upon the results  already attained, ond on all sides expressions of sympathy in the undertaking were forthcoming.  Naturally the question of compensation come under discussion, and on  this point Mr. MoDonald states thot  the dairymen expressed the view that  a larger measure of compensation  should be given them. Opinion upon  this point was not unanimous, however, some of the dairymen asking for  more, while others argued that the  government was already paying an  adequate sum-  Ultimately the oollective view ol the  convention expressed itself in the form  of a resolution to the effect that the  government be asked to continue its  work in connection with the eradication of bovine tuberculosis, but thot  the amount of compensation be raised  from a hall to two-thirds, and that  the maximum valuation be increased  to $160 in the case of grades, and to  $250 in the case of purebreds.  Drastio -changes in the educational  system ot British Columbia that' ore  'intended to supply a suitable training  in after life for every boy and girl in  tho province ore recommended in the  report of Mr. G. H. Dean, assistant  'superintendent ol education, which will  be submitted to the legislature by the  Minister of Education in the course of  few days.  The report, which is the result of  Mr. Dean's investigations in tha schools  of Canada, United States, England,  Scotland, Ireland, France, Germany  ond Switzerland, is an exhaustive onw,  the recommendntions being divided into two main divisions dealing with the  training in elementary schools ond  that of secondary schools.  AIR SERVICE FOR MILLIONAIRES  According to plana outlined at the  dinner of the Aero Club of Chioago, a  hydro-aeroplane suburban line between Chiosco and Lake Forest will  furnish transportation for the wealthy  residents of towns on the north shore,  where stations wHl be built next summer. Two flying boats will be put  into service by the new transportation  oompony whioh hos been named "The  Thompson Wiggins Company."  TUNNEL UNDER MERSEY  A tunnel scheme for the construction  of o tramway under the Mersey from  the Centre of Liverpool to the Choi-  hire side of the river wos brought before tho Liverpool City Counoil recently. The tunnel would be two ond  o half miles in lengtfi and the cost of  the undertaking about $15,000,000. A  roadway would also bo provided for  other traffic The author of the scheme  is Mr. 0. W. Mellins, the general manager of the corporation tramway*,  THIS AFTERNOON'S HOCKEY  The hockey match thia afternoon between tho local team and Summerland  took plaoe early in order that the visitors might return home on the afternoon bost. The result was a draw, aa  neither team registered a aingto tolly,  the heavy condition of the ice being  probably the cause, making it impossible for the players to carry the puck.  Dr. Raymond Petit asserts that  the blood el a healthy horse,  heated to fifty-six degrees, centigrade, insures tbe herding of all sorts  of wounds. Applied to the surface of  a wound, the serum, he says, stimulates the phagocytes of the blood to  suoh a degree that thoy destroy all  microbes, and the wound heals very  rapidly.  FORTY CLERGYMEN AID IN CONSTRUCTION OF CHURCH  Clergymen of various denominations Bought in some way to aid "'Billy"  Sunday, the famous revivalist, during his .visit to Soranton, Pa., and finally  concluded to build the Billy Sunday Tabernoohs. Money wos not ony too  plentiful, however, and the result was determination oa the part of the ministers to build the Tabernoole themselves. The photograph shows some of  the forty clergymen of different denominations during a moment of rest,  "Billy" Sunda<- who waa once as great a baseball player as he Is vow  a preacher, will hove to divide public space with no less a personage than  BilHoid Boll" Jaok Rose, the notorious informer who 'was set free as a  result ot his testifying against former Police Lieut.

VETERINARY SURGEON  (Cradualr McCill Univaraily)  Residence :   GLENN AVENUE  Messages  may   be  left  at  the  office  of  Messrs. Kattenbury 8c Williams  The step taken by the city council  last Saturday in dcoiding to grant  themselves a small salary for their  services to tho city, will no doubt  come us"u surprise to the genoral public, although the matter has been freely discussed in business circles for a  long time.. We believe, however, at the  same time that there are few citizens  but what will hoartily endorse their  aotion.  Only thoBe who aro in close touch  with the council and the activities ol  the various committees huve any idea  to what proportions the work which  is thrown upon the local fathers has  grown during the past few years. Tho  arious publio utilities which the oity  now owns, and which up to the present has been run bo successfully, eaoh  involves a burden ol detail work  which almost amounts to that of a  private business.  Take the Water and Light departments for instance, which is constant-1  ly expanding to meet the growing necessities of tho city. It is safe to say  that thia one department entails as  muoh work us was included in the entire oity business a few years ago.  The great area now covered by the  city streets makes the board of works  one of the most important committees  of the council and when street work  is in full swing that department i��  kept almost constantly engaged laying  out and .personally seeing to the  carrying out af the work.  With the installation of the  sewerage system the work of the  Health and Sewerage oommittee has  increased enormously. An so on all  the way round. Moreover the very  development of these throws a vastly  increased responsibility upon the iin-  ^ance oommittee.  it will thus be realized that the actual attending of regular weekly meetings is only a very small part of the  of the council's duties, and it is this  fact whioh 1b making it increasingly  hard to find competent men who will  undertake the work. The day has gone  by when ,tho mero honor ol the title of  alderman is sufficient to tempt the beet  men, and it ia altogether too severe, a  strain upon a man's publio spirit.  To suggent that the paltry sum ol  $6 per weuk will repay the aldermen  not to mention the mayor, who has  generously declined to take higher  pay than the rest, lor their trouble  would, ol course be absurd, but it will  at least,be some small recognition of  their sr.crilico in the publio interest,  Mr. W.

Near Abhott Street Bridie  WcU,  raiitipi  CORRESPONDENCE  Editor Kelowna aftecord.���  Vancouver, B. 0. Feb. 4th,  Dear Sir.���It is with a great deal of  pleasure that I have perused your valuable paper (of the laart two editions,  especially) regarding Kelowna and ita  Canada apparently has been at a  standstill. First of all1 I want to con  gratulate the people of Kelowna on  having such a council aa the 1913 one  ���the best to my mind that ever guid-  od the affairs of the city ainoe its incorporation. Especially should I men'  tion 'the name of Alderman Sutherland  a man that has given more time to  council affairs than any other alderman. True, they have aU done nobly  but Alderman Sutherland hat? been  largely responsible for the clean out,  far-sighted methods of -the counoil and  you might have seen him many an  evening after eleven o'clock walking  alone to his residence on ihe beach, after long hours, spent on city business.  Kelowna owes much to Alderman Sutherland. And then we might mention  my friend, Mayor .lones, who has been  a resident for muny years and has  always taken a keen interest in the  development of the city, aud it was  fully demonstrated at the last eleetion  by the people when he was returned  for the third year by acclamation, and  as mayor of Kelowna that Mayor  Jones can be counted on when any  question is at issue for the betterment  of the city. In any great moral issue  you know where to find him. We might  enumerate others, but anace will not  permit.   They have all done welK  Regarding the development of 1913  in Kelowna it is truly remarkable, and  reading your building inspector's report, the figures are phenomenal. The  new school is one ot the great assets  to the city nnd is a decided advance  in "providing modern means to educate  he child in every detail to fit them  or life's work.  I am delighted to find our Vancou-  er papers bringing before the publio  he Okanagan and its enterprises, and  we Kelownaites in Vancouver are anx-  ously waiting for that short rail route  o be completed, when we shall be able  o procure Kelowna apples at reasonable prices, and the promoters of  'Made in B. 0." in which they are  rying to educate the people here  might also add "'Grown, in B. ,C" for  it is a rare thing in the district where  ) am living to see fruit of any des-  ription from your vallwy.

We believe Pat Burns hit the  nail on the head when he stated a few  days ago that to bring down the cost  of living we must get back to the band  ,nd grow something.

FOX FARMING IN YUKON  The enthusiasm concerning the fox  catching and farming hi the Yukon  haa materially waned during the past  few weeks owing to the fans' that tbe  price of foxes has decreased nearly 50  per cent since last summer and that  hundreds of foxes held in captivity  have died from some unknown ��� "vuse.  Many of these foxes were black, and  in some oases, as high as $1,500 to  $2,000 had been paid for them. One  dealer, who it ia said, could have sold  his stock of foxes in July for 165,000  sold two weeks ago for less than $35,-  OOU, the latter price being, to some extent, due to the decline in prices, but  also, to the fact that many of Ihe  animals had died in the meantime.  One young black fos, for which $1,600  had been paid, died five days after  being placed in the corral.  Owing ta the decline in prioe, fully  150 young foxes, all of the red variety  held in captivity in southern Yukon,  have been turned out to return to  their native haunts in the wilds. Previous to sickness developing among  foxes in captivity here, upwards of 200  young ones Had been snipped from  White Horse alone, to fox ranches in  iN'ew Brunswick, Prince Edward Island,  and to dealers near Boston, Mass. At  present there are not over 50 held in  this locality.  A number are experimenting with  mink farming, but greet difficulty is  experienced in kee;iin^ them, wire corrals offering little resistance when they  seek their freedom.  Owners of black and silver gray foxes are not discouraged over the slump  in prices, but contend that they will  be more valuable than ever within a  few months.  BARBED WIRE  Moat of us know barbed wire, some  have sworn at it, some have sat on  it, or become entangled when trying to  get through a fence of it, and then-  well, just sworn some more. The inventor, we are told, however, is still  blessing it. It is said to have been  the luckiest invention in history. We  do not know for a certainty just what  was the origin of barbed wire, but  have juat read thia account, and it  looks plausible:  "It oamo about by accident. The inventor of barbed wire, having a neighbor whose piga trespassed on his garden, he put up one day a fence of his  own make. This fence had barbs and  points on it; it was queer and ugly-  hut it kept out the j i���. It was a  real barbed wire fence���the first in the  world��� and there was millions ol money in it; but the young owner nnd  his friends laughed at its freak appearance. One day two strangers saw  this fenoe, tierceived now well it kept  out th > riffs, realized how cheap it was  ���realized, in a word, its value��� and  ordered several tons of it. Furthermore  they contracted to sell for a term of  years all tho barbed wire he eo ild  produce. He borrowed $1,000, nnd  set up a little factory. A few years  later on he had paid haok that lo in.  and was worth a small matter ol $15,-  000,000 besides.  PROVINCIAL HEALTH OFFICEll  RETIRING  The early retirement from his official office of Dr. Fagan, provincial  health officer and secretary ol the provincial Teard of health, ia expected according to advices from Victoria. Dr.'  Fagan has been in the service of thu  province for fourteen years. For the  past year or two he has been in very  poor health and has finally decided to  retire.  Literally ground to pieces under the  wheels oS a train, thought to have  been an eaatbound freight, fragments  of tbe body of an unidentified man  were discovered scattered about in the  C.P.R. yards at Spenoes Bridge lost  rtt The man was apparently about  40 years of. age, and waa supposed to  have been "riding the' rods" on a  freight train whioh passed through the  station earlier in the evening. 'Tho  body waa dragged 400 feet.

Local Census Shows Startling  Increase in Ketowna's PopulatioB  IN TWO AND A HALF YEARS SINCE THE GOVERNMENT CENSUS INCREASE IS SIXTY-EIGHT PER CENT���^-POPULATION  NOW OVER THREE THOUSAND  The census of the city taken last  Friday morning by the scholars, headed by the school, revealed many interesting facts, chief amongst which was  the stinking increase of population  since the last census in 1911. Then the  returns showed a ropulntion of 1663.  f.ast Friday a total of 3037 Was coun-  ed, representing an increase of 68 per  cent. In the tabulated returns given  below the subdivisions of Woodlawn,  Bankhead, and Lakeview are given  separately. These subdivisions although actually adjoining tho city and  to all intents and purposes, a part  ol it; being served by the city's water  and light systems, and with streets  that are merely continuations of city  streets, ore not within the legal limits.  The original purpose of the census  was to secure a complete estimate of  children who would have to be provided for in the schools in the near future, and therefore the numbers of  children of different ages are' shown  separately. It was decided that with  very little more -trouble a complete  census ol the city could be taken. The  following are the figures obtained.

The city was divided into about  wenty districts and every house was  .iiited the same day. Thus the.fiirures  ore as near correct as it is possible to  get them. The only chance' ot error, in  fact was amongst the Chinese and foreigners, a few ol whom may have been  nissed, and one or two peculiar people  Who refused to give the information  asked. In these latter cases the number in the house was put down to tiie  minimum of two.  In eaoh district four of the pupils wars  placed with a captain over each.

Box 12  E.ENGLAND  BUILDER A CONTRACTOR  ) Plans,  Specifications   and   Estimates  Furnished  BAPTIST YOUNG PEOPLE'S  SOCIETY  The meeting oi the Baptist Young  People's Society took a literary turn  on Monday when ��� paper on Charles  Dickens was read by Mrs. J. B. Knowles, who gave her hearers a good insight into the lite of the great author,  whose stories have a warns, place in  the hearts of thousands of men and,  women and will find an echo in the  years to coma. Many people have  read and been delighted with the work  ol this most versatile of authors, but  not so many knows anything of his  lite. Born. 103 years ago in England,  in a house which was afterwards used  as a museum, Charles Dickens was very  early recognized to bs a prodigy and  was often made to sit in an arm chair  and warble popular ballads and even  tell stories lor Us father's fellow  clerks in the navy department. It is  in David Copperfield that Dickens  describes the early surroundings of his  childhood. The great novelist had  no easy row to ho* in his early days,  and Mrs. Knowles described these experiences. His father became bank'  rupt and was put into prison for  debt, but the two years of hardship  whioh this entailed, she pointed out,  were really of supreme importance to  the growth of the novelist. Eeoollec-  tions of the streets, prison and other  environments supplied him with a store  ot literary material upon whioh he  drew through all the years of his best  activity, but the bitterness of such  an experience was not sufficiently prolonged to sour him.  It is common knowledge that Dickens was a parliamentary reporter in  early life, and Mrs. Knowles told how  he strenuously set himsell to make  himself efficient for this other work of  a like nature. But this could not keep  down the wonderful gifts of storytelling which he possessed, and starting with "Sketches, of Boz" illustrative  of everyday lite and,every day people,  he produced that series of novels which  were the wonder of the nineteenth century. It was interesting to learn  that one critic at the beginning of tho  great novelist's career stated that  Diokens had risen like a rocket and  would go down like a stick.  The famous writer's visits to the  United States, his great reception  there. The way he offended the people  of that country were related, as was  also the way Queen Victoria received  him. He could have attained to great  honor and refused the offer of a title  from the Queen.   He died in 1870 and  NO CLEMENCY FOR  THE  IMPRISONED STRIKERS  The Minister of Justice at Ottawa  has refused to extend clemency at tha  present time to the miners undergoing  imprisonment tor participating la the  recent troubles in the mining districts  of Vancouver Island.

When the deputation of mothera and  wives ot imprisoned miners waited on  the Premier, Sir Richard MoBride  pointed out that it was outside. the  province ol his government to recommend that the royal clemency should  be extended, as this clemency could  only be applied through the national  government at Ottawa, by the Governor-General, who would consult In ths  matter with .the Minister of Justice.  He promised, however, at that time  to forward an account, of the meeting  to Ottawa, telling the Minister of Justice of the representations made to him  hie body lies in the poet's corner  Westminster Abbey.  Tbe occasion was tbe Annual meeting of the Kelowna liberal association  which was addressed by Mr. H. Guy  Rawlins of the Organizing Committee  oi the Provincial liberal Association.  Mr. Rawlins spoke at' length on consistent enrollment. "Flay the social  end of the game" he said, "like ths  Conservatives, and turn up at meetings even tor a smoke it you have  nothing special to discuss.  tion, Mr. F. R. E. DeHart  The hope waa expressed at the meeting that Mr. Brewster and Mr, McDonald would visit Kelowna at an early  date. An important decision arrived  at at last week's meeting was that  steps be immediately taken to form a  Young Liberal Party in Kelowna.  The speaker was bringing out his |pridhem; President District Assoeia-  point that if was not sufficient lor a1  Liberal io. merely be on the membership roll'; what was wanted was that  each member would pledge himself to  attend the meetings of the Association  and thus do away with hopeless apathy. The great difficulty was the lack  of enthusiasm; there was too much  danger in allowing thinga to sink into oblivion'.  The great blemish on the McBride-  Bowser administration, said the speaker, was their land policy. It had been  shown from the records of the land office that from January 1st, 1908 to  December 31st, 1010 that one million,  two hundred and eighty-lour thousand,  seven hundred and twenty acres of the  j finest land in the province pissed in-  Mrs. Knowles said that in letter 'to the hands of speculative concerns,  writing alone Charles Dickens did a or individuals who had plenty '.ol mon-  life's work, for suoh desorip- ey.

MAY TAKE IN THE YUKON  The Ottawa Citizen says:  "The province of British Columbia  is understood to be applying for the  control ot the Yukon territory, a step  long contemplated. No confirmation  of the report is obtainable here, but  the province is said to be anxious to  annex the territory, the administration of which by the Dominion involves a financial loss.  "United States railway interests are  reported to be,waiting for the absorption of the Yukon by British Columbia  before proceeding with plans for an all-  rail access to Alaska."  The annexation ol the Yukon to  British Columbia is without a doubt  regarded as a live issue at Victoria  Premier MoBride, however, stated in  The Daily Province a few days ago  that he hod, so far, taken no official  action in the matter.  "Am I required to exchange wedding  gifts in the department from which  they were purchased?"  "Not at all," said the floor walker.  "Thank you.

For the Best go to  Alsgard's  PBOPEB CASE OF GENULNE  PEASLS  How best to preserve pearls in all  their pristine beauty is not understood  by every one whs is fortunate enough  to possess them. There is a widespread belief that it is good to near  the gems next tbe skin to preserve  their lustre. Few people, however,  know everything there is to be knovn  about pearls^The man who buys .ha\n  outs them, sM handles old jewelry has  the widest experience.  One suoh man, who is now one of  the richest diamond merchants in England, has stated that if you wear tha  pearls next your skin you destroy  them. The reason is this: A pearl  is built up on a tiny particle of foreign matter, in some oases the embryo  of a crab, whioh has entered the shell  of aa oystsr; the foreign substance irritates the oyster, and it secretes a  milky juice, which covers ths bit oi  grit, or whatever it may be, with, a  thin nacreous film.  'Each successive secretion lorn** ���  skin and the pearl is made up of these  filmy delioate skins. A pearl the sire  ot a large bead ia a compaot, hard  s, which might be trodden on and  not crushed; nevertheless it is likely to  disintegrate; wearing it nut tha skin  accelerates this process. It is  ly known that the skin of a human  being exudes waste acids and fats.  These acids gradually eat their way  into pearls if they are worn next the  skin, and the filmy layers of the pearl  gradually peel off. The only way to  renovate a pearl which is in this condition is to strip off the defective lay-  or layers. Then for a time the  pearl will look well again, but, naturally, it will not have quite the same  lustre!it had. As many as six skins  be removed from a pearl, but, of  oourse, with the loss of each successive  skin it diminishes in value, as it loses  in weight and lustre.  My dear this pio tastes just   a   bit  stale���It must be yesterday's.  Tss, replied Mrs. Hardcrust,  H you don't eat It today It will  tomorrow's*  and  bs  Whatever the result of the efforts  which are still being made to eeoure  adequate representation lor the government of Great Britain, at tbe Pana-  ma-Paciiic International Exposition, to  be held in San Francisco in 1116, it is  certain that the Dominion of "undue  will play a moat creditable part in tlio  celebration.  The final plans lor the Canadiim pavilion, which is to be one of the handsomest among the building represunta-  iative of foreign nations aad spates,  Kere accepted January 21, and the  process of actual construction will have  begun before the publication of this  article, under the supervision of Colonel William Hutchinson, al Ottawa,  the Canadian Exhibition Commissioner  Colonel Hutchinson arrived in San  Francisco January 14 to inaugurate  the work upon the building, preparatory to the arrival of the Canadian  exhibit, which is now on the way to  that oity. He was joined at San  Francisco by George Freeman, the  London architect who is designer of  the building, and his staff.  The pavilion, which will cost approximately S30U,0U0 will be the largest exposition building ever erected by  the Canadian government. It will be  340 feet long, 240 feet wide and B0 feet  high. The whole sum espended upon  the building and its contents will be  1600,000 or more.  A portion of the products that will  orm the display were shipped several  veeke ago from Ghent, where they were  xhibited at the recant exposition  hat city, a portion coming by ship  by the way of Cape Horn, anil the  emainder by the Isthmus of Panama  Further exhibits, however, will be added of articles, products and animals,  shipped direct to San Francisco from  the Canadian provinces.  The pavilion and these exhibits are  by the Dominion government and it is  probable that there will be additional  ndependent exhibits arranged by many  if not all of the several provinces.  While the exhibit will cover all agri-  ultural, manufacturing, and education  al interests, great emphasis is being  aid upon the importance of the Canadian live stock exhibit. Recently  Charles K. Mitchell, minister of public  works of Alberta, and Commissioner  Lanagan of British Columbia were  guests oi the exposition officials and  in conference with I. D. Graham, assistant chief of the Live Stock Department, in reference to Canada's part in  what is to foe the greatest live stock  xhibit ever held at any exposition.  View herds will be maintained by various record associations, constituting  a continuous live stock show, and affording every visitor an opportunity  not only to see live stock of different  breeds, but to see animals that are  certified by their record associations  as being typical oi the breed they rap-  resent.  That neither the people of California  the exposition officials nor those Englishmen who are oonversant with the  importance of the matter, have abandoned hope of having a representative  exhibit by the government of Great  Britain at the exposition, was evidenced at a luncheon given by thci president and directors oi the exposition at  the Palace Hotel, San Francisco, to  Sir Robert Balfour, during his no  visit. In company with Lord Biohard  Farrar Hersohel, Sir Robert has U  conducted over the exposition grounds,  shown tbe almost incredible progress  of construction oi exhibit panaoes, the  electrical models showing ths methods  of Uluminatiobs, the sculpture studies  and the mammoth activities of the  horticultural department in preparing  trees, plants and flowers which are to  grace the grounds, and expressed him.  self aa having received new confirmation oi his belief in. ths importance and  novi table success oi ths exposition.  "I have not yet abandoned hope that  Great Britain will participate in the  exposition," said Sir Robert. "1 can  assure you that tha declination of the  British government ha�� not been due  to unfriendly feeling, but wholly to a  question whether British manufacturers oould be induced to eead a truly  representative exhibit.  "I am not here to accuse or excuse,  but to give actual facus oi the situation.  "Early last year the British Hoard  Bi Trade sent a representative hen  to look over the situation. On his return he reported prospects fa.'orable  or a successful exhibit on a large scale  ad on that score no chances would be  aken in deciding to partspipate. The  Board oi Trade oanvassed to see ��ko  would send exhibits. From, ttasnanlts  fear arose that Great Bfitain might  lot be represented in a cr��! litable man-  nsr unless the gomemment came to aid  with a large contribution. Money was  carce and taxes already high and the  government could not see it s way dear  o accept the invltsition to martioipate."  Sir Robert expressed hlmt <el( as believing that, now the people and in-  erests ol Britain have been impressed  with the commenolal and social significance of the oi libit, a imwe favorable determination of the ml iter may  bs reached.    .

TRAFFIC IN BRITISH TITLE  The Boandal in reference to the purchase oi titles and other honors, first  broached by Sir George Kekewich and  reiterated recently by Mr. D. A. Thomas, of Cardiff has received additional  flavor by the publication of an article  in thu "(undid Review", by Thomas  G. Bowles, former member of parliament  who has long been a thorn in the side  of each party, iu which he gets down  to details as to the scandal, Ue assorts that the Conservative funds,  which in 1S74 totalled 20,000 pounds,  rose to-tf0,ou0 pounds in the nineties,  The Liberal lunds, which were very  low in 1886, stood at 500,000 pounds  in 1001 and are now estimated at 400,-  000 pounds. He assorts that the tariff  for honors is 50,000 pounds for a baronetcy with anywhere from 150,000 to  400,000 pounds per peerage. He declares that correspondence passed between a party whip and a would-be  peer who refueaed to pay the contribution. Thereupon the party whip expressed a fear that a cluim for the peerage  would not be [considered. The would-be  peer, however, threatened to publish  the correspondence if hia name was not  included in the next birthday honor  list, and the name appeared.  SUFFRAGETTES NOT IMP! JESSED WITH WILSON'S ATTITUDE  mm v.-.--'- ���  The above photograpa shows a, number of the band of women who journeyed to Washington to enlist Prcniden 's Wilson's influence in behalf of their  cause. The suffragettes were verj ��� indignant when only a few were admitted  to an audience with the presiden t.. They expressed their feelings in such a  pronounced manner that the pre ai/Jent ordered that all of the women be admitted. After hearing their presenilation, Preaident Wilson gave the women  very slim encouragement, and baaed his failure to do so on the ground  that he could not speak for hits partyuntil tho party had taken a position  in the matter. Mrs. Glendowei - J^rans of Boston, who led the delegation  ���aid: "I thought from what yt ,u said at Seagate when you wero a oandidate  for president that you were it, fa-ror of our cause, but you were gunning  for vates then." So chilled tun a, jme of these women by the president's  rather frigid reoeritlon, that -when .departing, many passing him in single file  refused to take his preffsrsd hand.   , ,        ,.,.,,  That tho per capita cansumption of  water in most cities of North America  ia inordinately high, can be shown  by a comparison with centres of population in Europe. The tables below  give figures taken from representative  cities on both sides of the Atlantio  and furnish a good basis- for     such a  comparison.

Russia  21  Mancheater, Englund  42  Ilovqnport, England  40  Average    35.5  It will bo seen from tho above that  tho average consumption per hraJ   in  America    i8 botween    three and four  times what it is in Europe.   This ter-  mendous difference can only be ac oun-  ted for by assuming that the greater  portion of tho water consumes in new  world cities ia simply wasted.   A consumption of 50 gallons per head per  day ought    to be   ample for all purposes, and would still be about 43 por  cent greater than the European average.   Taking tho American average as  150 gallons, we see that oities on this  ide   of   tho   Atlantio are   using    100  gallons per head  per day more than  it necessary.  This unnecessary waste increases tho  ities' financial burdens in many ways.  The    pumping    and    filtration plants  must bo    of needlessly large oamicity;  ar more powor must be employed   to  orce a barge quantity of useless water  through the mains;   and tho dhlribu  ion pipes and also the sewers   that  arry the water away, must both be  igger    than    necessary.   Mr.    II. 0.  JPyne-Roberle,    M.   Inst.,    C.E.,   esti-  matea   that in a city of 250,00(1 population,    the extra   cost of wator de  livercd would   amount'to (560,0110, or  12.24    per inhabitant.     Further,   tho  difference in cost of aewerago anil sewage   dispoaul   would   be 8-120,01: ^ 0r  81.67 per inhabitant.   This means that  city's   water    rates   aro inoreapid by  83.91 for every man. woman, arid child  of tho population, without anynnpre-  oiable heneflt being gained for the extra outlay.  Certainly some meana should be taken to check the present reckless waste.  If aome cities would conBervo their present water supply, there would Ii. no  neceaaity of new reservoirs and iddi-  tional1 water sup] 1>- for many ye ra tor  come.  CO-OPERATING EGG MARKETING  ASSOCIATION  Probably the first time in tho his-  ory of any provinos in the Dominion,  ��� movement has been started in Saskatchewan to form an association, in  (liferent distriots, for ths co-operative  marketing of eggs, and the Increasing  of the egg output. It is the desire  to place this industry on a profit pro-  JBUoing basil without increasing the  ost to the consumer, and in fact,  if the scheme works well, a reduction  may be expeoted. It is proposed to  have nine branches of this association;  the headquarters to be at Hcgina. An  association has been organized at  l.loydminstor, and others will be organized at Redvers, Milestone, Tugasko  Forget, Graham, Hill, Penzance, El-  era and Wilcox.

STORE TO RENT  ON  BERNARD AVENUE  HEWETSON and MANTLE, Ltd.  mm*  New Municipal Act-  is Introduced  GREATER PROVINCIAL SUPERVISION OF. MUNICIPALITIES  The Municipal Apt, baud upon ths  Hading ol the Boyal Commission on  Municipal Government, whioh made its  ,' report to ihe lost session oi the Legislature, was introduced Friday last by  |tha Hon. W. J. Bowser, Attorney-General.  The aot inaugurates a new departure  in municipal procedure in British Columbia, and, while Its provisions ars  by no means as stringent as those ol  the Looal Government Board oi Great  Britain, whioh exercises the strictest  'control over all municipal bodies, yet  it proposes supervision ol all munioi-  Ipal matters by aa inspector appointed  | by a jnunicipul department oi the Government. This inspeotor oi municipalities whose olfioe shall be attached to  the Attorney-General's department,  shall have power to hold a publio inquiry into any oi the business ol s  municipality, and bis findings, upon  the approval oi the Lieutenant-Cover-  nor-in-Council, shall be binding upon  the offioials ol suoh municipalities.  Under the proposed bill any municipality may submit money by-laws to  the inspeotor for approval, and before  issuing debentures must submit both  the by-law and debentures to him lor  approval. Hia oertihoate of approval  shall be considered conclusive evidence  ol the validity of the by-law or debentures ia all courts oi the province.  Another ol the duties of the inspse-  tor of municipalities will be the standardisation oi a system of municipal  book keeping, espeoially with regard to  the'issuing oi debentures, stock and  treasury certificates. The result oi this  proposal will be that all aocounts   oi  I municipalities will be intelligible to  the citizens who takes an interest in  his looal municipal affairs. The inspeotor is also empowered to inquire  into the management of sinking iunds,  | and his duties shall extend . to the  books and accounts of the Board ol  School Trustees.  j   Another important feature of the not  las outlined by.Mr. Bowser, was ths  voluntary establishment of a board of  control in cities having a populiiiott  15,000 or more, on the vote oi   three-  .fourths of the members of the council.  .The establishment oi this board ol  control, which is optional, will vest the  'affairs oi government in a board composed ol the Mayor or Reeve ol a municipality and two comptrollers, who  shall be nominated and elected from  the city at large.  Publio Utilities  Dealing with ths question ol municipal control oi publio utilities, theiAt  torney General pointed out that the  franchises that were granted to the  companies now operating ia B.C., were  given at a time whan money was  scarcer than it ia now, and when it  needed considerable courage to embark  on such enterprises as these franchises  control and that, in view of this fact  in dealing with the question of niuni-  nicipalities entering into competition  with any oi the established companies  operating street railway, telephone and  light systems, that ths vested interests  oi ths operating companies, could not  in fairness bs disregarded.  "As * result oi our deliberations we  have oome to the oonolnsion that no  municipality shall bs allowed to undertake work of this kind without the approval of the Lioutenant-Governur-in-  oounoil." said Mr. Bowser. "We do not  say that approval will not be givon  but it must be sought."  The Munioipal Aot provides for the  appointment by tbe Lieutenant-Gov-  emor-in-Counoil oi aa guditor for  every municipality where such an of-  lioer has not been appointed by the offioials of that municipality. This oom-  pulsory audit system, taken in oon-  junotion with the standardising of munioipal bookkoeping methods and the  compulsory statement, in pamphlet  form, of the financial standing of the  municipality, will keep a strong oheok  on the expenditure of the munlolpsft  ties and go far to conserve the rights  of the eitlsens.  Power of Referendum  The ipower of referendum, which waa  granted to municipalities under tha old  aot. aad which it is felt has been muoh  abused during the last lew years, will  be ourtailed under the provisions of  the proposed aot. The Attorney-General explained that matters over whioh  the munioipal oommittee had no jurisdiction and whioh belonged to the pro-  vinos or some other section oi the  olvil government, had been submitted  to the electorate, thereby involving a  considerable waste of time and money.  Under the news act all the provisions  with regard to looal improvements  whioh were included in the old not  havo been eliminated and a new aot  [Wring solely with this subject has  been drafted. Power is conferred upon the oourt of    revision to increase  assessments  -as    wed   as to decrease  them.  Other Provisions  Among the increased powers given  under the new act are powers to regulate the measuring and weighing of  all articles of food, fuel, and to impose penalties for right, weight and  short measurement; power to examine  ,nd license moving pietaVs operators;  power to regulate and .prohibit the  erection of huts, shacks and tents,  whioh c ight be a detrimental to the  value ol surrounding property; power  to regulate second hand stores and  unk shops; power to compel manufac-  urers to install smoke abatement apparatus, and power to regulate and  collect rent for areas and cellars under  sidewalks.  Another important point brought out  by the Attorney-General related to the'  labilities that might be incurred by  nunioipalities. He stated that by ths  new bill, municipalities could makear.  angement* with their banking institutions for sums covering the revenue  or that year, but they must .not ���rude  upon the revenue of any luooeeding  year.  Under the same heading Mr. Bowser  discussed tho powers of municipalities  under the new act in relation to  money by-laws, and stated that before  any bill was submitted, a properly au-  .horised official of the municipality  would go into the whole matter of the  proposed expenditure and ascertain de  finitely the cost of the Heme, the  mount of the debentures, the rate of  interest and the details af the sinking  fund.  In thiB regard he indicated a very  Important cham-o in the manner of no-  ifyinir the public as to the submission  of by-laws. Instead of as at present  advertising the by-laws in the news  papers for a certain period, the muni  cipality would undertake to send a  copv of the by-law to every one on  he municipal list.  For Benefit of Public  In further reference to munioipal al  airs the Attorney-General stated that  it would be necessary lor all municipalities to lodge a copy of their -   an-  uol report  with   the   new munioipal  lepartment so that any one interested  n its affairs might become acquainted  with them at a minimum ol trouble,  and expense, The financial papers, he  said, had advocated a policy of this  sort for a considerable time, as it gave  he interested public el other parts  an assurance that the affairs ot     the  nunioipalities were under proper   sur-  ^eillanoe.  The subject of town planning     and  ubdivisions engaged the attention ol  the Attorney General briefly. In re  gard to town planning he stated that  it had been decided to observe a conservative policy. Under the act three-  fourths in number and value of the  owners of property would be entitled  to submit their proposals to the council and the counoil upon approving the  same could sanction the work to be  undertaken.  Dealing with subdivisions, the Attorney-General recited ��� number af the difficulties that had already been onooun-  tered and stated that as a result ol  the provisions of the present act many  districts had been plastered with  streets for whioh the municipality had  no earthly use. In order to get over  this apparent difficulty he said that  the new act provided for the owners  of Bubdivisions rough grading the  streets appearing on their plans.  ���! O   A RARE SLEEPING PALM.  In Golden Gate Park, San Francisco,  a specimen of the rare "sleeping" palm  has beon lound, whioh is considered to  be the only one in North America.  The tree, whioh was brought to  America by a young Australian botanist, William Robinson, gives out a peculiar aromatic odor. Its upper branches were loaded with a beautiful  ralnbow-bued flower, giving forth a  heavy perfume.  Around the bass of the trees were  the dead bodies of small animals and  birds. The curator who discovered the  the rare patui felt drowsiness steeling  over him, and his son complained of  the saras feeling.  It was found that the tree whloh had  originally been brought from on* of  the South Sea Islands belonged to the  species Coeineae somnambulae, or  sleepinc -aim, whloh blooms only once  in fifty years, and the flowers of which  were formerly used ss a drug by the  islanders.  Samples of the flowers have been  sent to the medical department of the  University of California, where a test  wiH be made to disoover the souroe of  their peoullur properties,  FREE DISTRIBUTION OF CORN AND  ALFALFA SEED  In order to stimulate Interest In the  province in the growing of corn and  .Haifa.

NANTUCKET'S BOW, CANVAS PATCHED AFTER IMPACT  The most serious sea disaster since the Titanic went down, occurred when  the old Dominion liner Monroe was sunk by the Nantucket. As usual, it  will be sought to fix the blame on some one; but in the end it will be the  same olf story. A great hue and cry will be raised that the rules are not  strict enough, but the cry will gradually get so faint that in the end, one  will have to have an ear trumpet to even hear a murmur ol protest. However, departing from the commonplace we turn to the sublime. The followinj;  is the heroic end of the chief wireless operator Ferdinand J. Kuehen.  ��� "He was standing by lifeboat No. ,1 and was about to leave the sinking ship, f Tic had a rile preserver on. saw him unfasten the preserver und  place it about the waist of a woman, and after seeing her safely a* ay, miss  his footing and fall overboard.

PHONE 8  Amusement*  DRAMA OF THE HIGH SEAS  Under the title of "Captain Kidd"  the first drama of the high seas will  be the attraction at the Opera House  on Saturday, In-making thia production the idea was to .build a romantic  adventure story around the famous  pirate character of history. 'All* tha  noveU ever written about the high  sea marauder were searched for material, and the result has been .turning  out a three-part production that will  surely entertain and please all who  witness it,  David M. Hartford, one of the greatest actors of the present day plays the  leading role, and right well does he  enact the character of the celebrated  and notorious pirate. He is supposed  by an excellent company of well known  actors, and hundreds of supernumerary  characters are utilized. Money was  expended with a lavish hand in order  to secure the propor equipment for the  scenic investiture, and there are abundant mechanically contrived effects, used so as to give the picture its proper  place in the world of "movies."  This, the first production of its kind  will be followed by others of a Hke nature and although the title might suggest ii picture of morbid surroundings,  the management of the Opera House  guarantees that there is nothing in the  pioture, or Ub presentation that will  offend oven the most fastidious.  A CitV IN THE NIGHT  One of the best pioture stories produced in England by the Barker Company, eutitled "A Cry in the Night,"  will be shown at the Opera House on  Tuesday ufturnoon and evening. It is  fundamentally a story of high finance,  but there is the tender thread of a  love story running through it that  makes tho story very attractive to all.  The story is full of enthralling incidents and has many interesting features that mako it a worth while production.  PBOTEA  ' Trotea" is a five-part feature picture somewhat after the style  of Tigoiuur und Fantomas. only on a  muoh larger and more magnificent  scale, it is booked to appear at the  Opera House on Friday, the 20th inst.  It is the story of a remarkably clever  woman, a diplomatic agent, abouodiug  in thrilling incidents. 'Trotea" is a  woman such as we have not ���ten before in pictures. She is unique, charm  ing; resourceful and bewildering. Her  every action denotes the finished actress and athlete. She performs 'oats  that fill one with astonishment and  changes her individuality over and over  again during the run of the story,  The five-parts are replete with delightful natural scenery, excellently photographed and the incidents are presented in a manner that carries conviction  in such a manner that Protea will an  doubtedly create a sensation unlike almost any other picture ever shown  here before.  A RUN ON THE BANK  A run on tho lending libraries and  book stores of the city for copies of  "Graustark" resembles a run on the  bank. Bar MoCutoheon'B novel is  amazingly popular. Everybody is reading it. All of whioh indicates the tremendous interest being taken in the  stage production of this popular story  MASQUERADE CARNIVAL AT  ROLLER RINK  The second masquerade carnival, held  at the roller rink on Tuesday evening  a, as expected, another very successful "event.. The costumeB were v��y  numerous1, the floor being crowded  almost to the limit. The variety was  large and many very pretty costumes  us well as    original and comic   were  ell represented.  The judges, six in number were te-  k'Cted from the largo crowd of on-look-  ers and consisted of three Ladies and  three gentlemen, Their awards wore as  follows:  Virst Fancy Lady, Miss M.

Second Comic Lady, Stanley Wade,  Second Comic Gent, C. Kirkby.  The judged found no easy task in selecting the winners, but on the awarding of the prizes, tho applause* which  greeted the announcements showed vcy  plainly that their choice waB popular  with the crowd.

HOW THE HIGH COST OF BUILDING WAS BEATEN  Inoluded in the high cost of living is the high cost of building; in fact  it is suoh a factor that parties desirous of living near Newton, Mass, found  it cheaper to buy a house and move It more than a mile, than to build a  new house. The above photograph Shows a section of the house. It was  neosssary to out the house into throe sections in, order to move it. In moving the houss it was neosssary to go over a hffch hill; however, the feat was  successfully accomplished, the house was re-asiembled and the owner heat  tke high cost of building very muoh' to his satisfaction.  a���s  THUBSftAY, FEBBIJABY J3, 1S>V  YALE LAND DISTRICT  OSOYOOS DIVISION  Notioe is hereby given that I, Henry  B.

The new  device is described as a wooden minnow, and instead of the usual spinner  in front there is carved the face of a  nretty girl,  In front of the face is a miniature  electric light, the power of which is  furnished by a dry battery carried in  the pocket of the fisherman. There also  is a small lamp in front o! the hook  to throw light an the bait, which  | hangs on the other side.  The entire minnow is painted red,  and within the device is a miniature  musical box concealed within the body  of the artificial bait, the playing of  which is regulated by the fisherman  before he oasts his line.  The inventors say they adopted the  idea because they found while fishing  .that bass were attracted by the ring-  ling of a cowbell and that the musioal  box Is a great improvement on the  idea. They say that thev had marked  success with it.-^New York Herald.
