Array VOL. IV.   NO:-21  KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY,  APRIL 18, 1912.  $1.50 Per Annum. \  Meeting of  City Council  AW. Millie   Returns  to Duty  - Big Batch of By-laws Await  Assent of Electors  The council met Monday morning, the only absentee being Aid.  Raymer, Aid. Millie having returned to his accustomed seat at the  foot of the table. He was welcomed  by the mayor who voiced the  general pleasure in seeing him  back to his duties.  The following accounts were  passed: ���  E. G. Fuller, refund  of deposit on  light connection       ���       -       -   27.50  J.   A.  Bigger, building   inspector's  salary, March quarter      -        -    30.00  Kelowna Carriage Works, repairing  grader and aupplies-       -       ���    34.75  Board of Works pay sheet      -        - 235.50  J. A. Bigger, contract price of implement shed .... 595.00  A letter was read from the  Municipal Construction Co., acknowledging order for wood pipe,  which they stated would be shipped  inside of a week.  A petition was presented from  residents on the north side of  Lawson avenue, for a cement sidewalk. This was laid aside to be  considered along with other applications.  The following letter was also  read :���  To the Mayor and Council,  Dear Sirs,���  On behalf of the Kelowna Gun Club the  writer would like your permission to use  the field north of the cannery for trap-  ahooting purposes. The site in question  is sufficiently largeto eliminate any chances  of accidents to non-participantB.  F. W. FRASER.  It was decided to grant the  required permission.  Aid. Millie drew attention to an  item in last weekV accounts of a  payment to the ci'y solicitor for  preparation of special deeds. He  asked if this was in order, and if  so, what the city solicitor's regular  salary of $60 per month was supposed to cover.  The question raised some little  discussion on the subject. Aid.  Millie considered the salary should  be sufficient to cover the preparation of the by-laws which was at  present chiefly being done by Aid.  Sutherland without payment. He  questioned whether it would not  be better, as the regular consultations of the solicitor were so few,  to pay for them individually, rather  than pay a fixed salary.  It was pointed out that the city  clerk had frequent occasion to consult the city solicitor, and the present arrangement was a great  convenience in this respect.  Aid. Taylor said it would not be  wise to attempt economy in legal  advice. The clerk could now consult the city solicitor at any time  when a difficulty arose, but he  might hesitate to do so if it meant  a fee of $5 each time.  Aid. Copeland suggested some  form of contract to define the  solicitor's duties.  Eventually it was left with the  Finance Committee to look into  the matter.  Aid. Millie ventured a suggestion  that the council hold its meetings  in the evening.but was immediately  pounced upon by Aid. Taylor, who  expressed a decided objection to  this. He said it was his custom to  work all day and play all night���  meaning, of course, that he did  not desire to work day and night  too.  By-laws 107, 108, 109, 1,10. Ill,  112   and    113,   were   considered  by the council in committee, and  ,        afterwards read a second and third  time.  By-law 114, to borrow $20,000  for permanent street improvement  on Bernard Avenue and Pendozi  Street, was read a first time.  A resolution was passed that the  \ six money by-laws, Nos. 109 to 114  be submitted to the electors and a  vote taken upon them in the council chamber on Wednesday, May  1 st between the hours of 9 a.m.  and 7 p.m. and that the city clerk  be appointed returning officer.  It was staled that a complaint had  been made by Mr. Budden about  the killing of hogs by the Chinamen on Sundays,  The mayor said the police had  already had the offenders up in  court and they had been fined.  Aid. Millie introduced a matter  of some importance to users ol  electric power in the city. He suggested that the city supply the  transformers which are at present  necessary before a motor of any  size can be connected with the  system. He contended that this  would remove the one serious objection to emploving electric power  and people could go ahead and  change their gasoline engines (or  motors without hindrance.  Aid. Blackwood asked the n.ayor  if he had been approached with  respect to the holding of a meeting  of irrigation water users to make  arrangements for the present year.  Mayor Jones replied that the  council had nothing to do with the  matter. It was entirely in the hands  of the water users to call the  meeting.  The meeting then adjourned  until the following day.  The council met again Tuesday  morning, the only business being  the final passing of By-law 107 to  regulate the establishment of industries liable to have a depreciating effect upon surrounding property, and of By-law 108, to levy  a rate for street watering.  The money by-laws, 109 to 114,  were brought to the stage when  they could be submitted to the  vote of the ratepayers.  The meeting then adjourned  until Monday next.  "What Happened to Jones"  " What happened to Jones " is  no longer a secret in Kelowna, and  those who attended the performance of the comedy on Saturday  and Monday nights last thoroughly  enjoyed the three hours which it  took to divulge the secret. The  play had been arranged for the  benefit of the building fund of St.  Michael's Church, and to Mr. H. J.  S. Reynolds is due the credit for  organizing the enterprize, which  was a great success. js.  The comedy itself is one of the  funniest and best which could have  been chosen, and it was presented  in a highly creditable way. The  caste was a good one from beginning to end, the central figure, Jones  being admirably taken by Mr.  Lionel Taylor, who has in his first  appearance established a reputation as a humorist, which will, no  doubt bring him into great demand  on these occasions. Mr. W. B.  Pease acquitted himself well as  Ebeneezer Goodly, a character  which calls for some fine acting.  Mrs. Weddell made a capital Mrs.  Goodly, with Miss Hudson and  Miss Collet! as the two daughters  Minerva and Marjorie.  The parts of Cissy, Mrs. Goodly's  ward, and Alvina, in love with the  Bishop of Ballarat, were well  sustanied by Miss Metcalfe and  Miss Binger, while Helma, the  Swedish servant, whose excellent  costume especially called for loud  applause, was taken by Mrs.  Barneby.  Mr. H. J. S. Reynolds did exceedingly well as Richard Heather-  ly, who finds himself between the  devil and the deep sea most of the  time in the schemes of the resourceful Jones.  Mr. A. Temple earned considerable applause as the Bishop of  Ballarat. Mr. Favell, as Bigbee, the  escaped lunatic, Mr. Aikens, as his  keeper, and Mr. R. Stone.as Holder,  the policeman, each contributed to  an excellent entertainment. Mr.  R. C. Reed was stage manager.  The Kelowna Choral Society  orchestra supplied the music under the conductorship of H. W.  Whitehead.  As a result of the play some  $100 or so is to be handed over to  the building fund.  Premier McBride and party had  booked passages to England on  what was to have been the first  return trip of the " Titanic."  Chief Sutherland's promptness  saved what might might have been  a bad accident yesterday. A horse  attached to a buggy with a lady in  it was tied to a post in the street  when a piece of paper blew up.  The horse, startled, pulled back,  the bridle coming off, and was  just starting to run when Chief  Sutherland ran up and grapped it  round the neck. His wrestling  powers stood him "in good stead  and he was able to hold the beast  until it could be secured again.  Sports for May 24th  The Racing and Athletic Club  met last Friday to consider the  advisability of holding the usual  sports of May 24th.  As this was also the annual  general meeting, the financial statement for the past year was read  showing receipts of $1,384.75, with  expenses $ 1,614.60,leaving a deficit  of $229.85. There were, however,  some $45 of unpaid subscriptions.  It was decided to borrow money  from the bank to pay off all the  club's obligations.  The   officers   elected    for   the  ensuing year were as follows :���  President��� F. S. Coates  Ist Vice-Pres���S. T. Elliott  2nd Vice-Pres���R. Lambly  Secretary���P. Brooke  Treasurer���W. M. Parker  Committee :���  R. A. Copeland, J. Pettigrew, W. R  Barlee, J. N. Cameron, W. Crawford  Dr. Richards, F. W. Fraser.  It was also decided to ask Mr.  Jas. Bowes to accept the office of  hon. president.  Mr. P. Brooke asked to he excused  from the office of secretary as he  fell unable to spare the time. The  meeting, however, lefused to hear  of this, and he was again unanimously elected.  Arrangements were made to hold  sports and races as usual on May  24lh, the committee to meet later  to draft a programme  The suggestion often made of  bringing the o[her athletic organisations of the city into line with the  club was again made and discussed  at some length, and it was agreed  that overtures be again made to  the various societies with that end  in view.  a  enmore  Notes  Mr. H. G. Hillard has bought  the lot adjoining C. C. Prowse's  place.  Mr. C. E. Atkins and family of  Fort William were amongst yesterday's arrivals.  Mr. R. E. Hunt and family, lately  of Montreal, moved out from town  this week.  The contract for a residence and  other buildings for Mr. Geo. Brown  and family, of Montreal, has been  let to J. Middleton.  Mr. J. A. Bigger has just completed a fine residence for Mr.  J. C. A. Whitham and the family  has moved in.  Mr. John Clark, of Vancouver,  was a visitor during the past week,  and has purchased property.  Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Ritchie and  daughter are new arrivals in the  valley, having moved last week  into temporary quarters.  Mr. and Mrs. Balsillie arrived  last Tuesday from Edinburgh,  Scotland. Mr. Balsillie is to manage Mr. W. H. McDougal's place in  Glenmore, and has already pitched  his tent.  Rutland News.  From our own correspondent.  Mrs. A. W. Dalgleish was taken  seriously ill during the week and  her condition at present is causing  great anxiety.  Messrs. Clever and Whiteway  have disposed of their business  this week to Mr. C. Crowcroft,  lately from England. The transfer  takes place on May Ist. Mr. White-  way is compelled to give up indoor  occupation owing to a weak heart.  He has given up the attempt to  try and become a mate for his  partner in size.  Some thoughtless or \indictive  person removed the gate at Scotty  Creek which controlled the supply  of water running into the flume of  the Central Okanagan Lands Co.  on Tuesday night, with the result  that the water overflowed at a  point south of the syphon, and  rushing down the coulee caused  considerable damage to several  orchards. The supports of the high  flume were washed away, and, if  the large volume of water had  been suddenly released, the results  would have been far more serious.  An example should be made of  such persons who thoughtlessly or  otherwise jeopardise other people's  property.  Board of Trade  Monthly Meeting  The Board of Trade held its  regular monthly meeting Tuesday  night, President R. B. Kerr in the  chair.  A telegram was read from the  government superintendent of  telegraphs at Kamloops announcing a flat rate of 2 c. for night letters between Kelowna and Vernon.  The Lake Shore Road committee  reported upon the result of the  Hon. Price Ellison's visit, which  has already been announced in  these columns. A vote of thanks  was tendered to the committee for  the interest they had taken in the  matter.  Messrs. A. L. Meugins, J. M.  Croft, J. H. Ferguson, K, McLaren,  and H. W. Biggin were accepted  as new members.  A resolution was passed on the  suggestion of Mr. W. Haug, that  the secretary ask the superintendent of the C. P. R. to see that the  railway crossing on Waler street  was fixed, as it was in a very bad  condition.  A suggestion was made by Mr.  G. Rowcliffe that copies of the  local papers should be distributed  on the train between Vernon and  Sicamous, as was done by other  towns. Mr. Josselyn thought that  Kelowna land sales and other general news should be regularly reported to the coast papers.  Mayor Jones stated that he had  been in receipt of a letter respecting the visit to the valley of a party  ot Winnipeg business men, and it  had been suggested that the Kelowna Board make arrangements to  meet them at Vernon with automobiles. They were leaving Winnipeg on the 23rd and would be  at Vernon by 8 a.m. on the 26th.  In considering (he matter it was  stated that as the parly would leave  Kelowna by the boat the same  afternoon there would be very  little time to attempt much in the  way of entertainment.  Mr. R. G. White, of Victoria,  laid before the Board a plan for a  publicity campaign on the prairies,  which he was prepared to carry  out if the Board approved by  means of lectures and lantern  slides. The matter was referred  to the publicity committee.  Mr. G. C. Rose brought up the  question of the city council's grant  to the Board of Trade, and the  matter was debated at some length.  Mr. R. B. Kerr urged lhat the  grant be much bigger this year.  He instanced other towns the same  size as Kelowna where from $1000  to $2000 was given for advertising  purposes.  Mayor Jones mentioned that it  was an unwritten law with the  council that one mill of the taxes  should be given each year for  grants; $700 had already been  given to the hospital.  Aid. Sutherland mentioned that  the one mill would probably produce $1,700, which left $1,000 for  the Board of Trade and other  purposes.  Mr. F. R. E. DeHart considered  that the only fair plan was to levy  a tax on all the people for advertising purposes. Outside of the  grant now given there were hundreds of people who were deriving  benefit from the advertising being  done by private individuals, who  never contributed one cent. Warming to his subject he said Kelowna  people were the slowest on earth  at advertising. We won prize after  prize in the great exhibitions and  the only notice taken of it was a  few lines in the booklet. People  should get busy and make known  some of the attractions we had to  offer.  An important matter, he said,  was the question of a map of the  city. He thought it was high time  Board got out a map of the city.  People were always making enquiries about maps   of   the   city.  Aid. Millie mentioned that there  was at present a motion before the  council to revise the map of the  city. It was pretty hard to keep it  up to date at the rate the blocks  were being subdivided. When the  map was re-drawn it would be  easy to get small ones from it.  It was finally decided lo get  prices on small maps.  The discussion coming back to  the question of a grant from the  city, Mr. G. C. Rose suggested the  Board put through a resolution  asking the council to levy a special  rate for advertising purposes.  A resolution was framed on  these line: and carried.  Mr. Haug asked if it were not  possible to induce the C. P. R. to  reinstal its telephone. It was mentioned that the secretary had written the agent but had received no  reply.  Mr. S. 1. Elliott announced that  he had been going into the question of a tourist hotel for Kelowna.  A few of th-m had got together  and had decided upon a site which  they had purchased. He was also  glad to say that after some effort  they had practically got all the  necessary capital subscribed, and  would go ahead with the project  as soon as possible.  Mr. Pitcairn asked what was being done  in respect to the daylight-saving scheme.  Mr. Rose stated that the council had  agreed lo instruct the power-house to  commence whistling one hour earlier on  May 1st, and the sawmill would probably  do the same, so the chances were that the  citizens would have to get up an hour  earlier on May 1st.  Mr. Elliott raised a protest against the  action of the government in transferring  the ferry contract from Mr. E. E. Hankin-  son to Mr. J. Campbell. He considered  that a great injustice had been done lo Mr.  Hankinson, and recommended that a resolution be sent to the government against  the change.  In discussion it was considered advis.ible  first to investigate the government's reasons for making the change and a committee was appointed for that purpose.  Several 'attempts were made lo adjourn  the meeting, hut as the hour was com.  paratively early the members seemed  reluctant to part and discussion drifted  around in a desultory way (or some time.  The president was taken to task by  Mayor Jones for some sweeping remarks  respecting the provincial government which  the Inner considered savored too much of  parly politics for the Board of Trade.  Finally the meeting broke up���illegally,  as the motion to adjourn was jokingly  deli aled.  Appalling Disaster  to Atlantic Liner  The Methodist church Bible  class are having a social evening  Tuesday next al the home of Mr.  J. Curts, and extend a cordial invitation to ull who may care to attend.  The continued Illness of Aid. H.  W. Raymer is causing a good deal  of anxiety to his many friends, and  the strongest hopes are expressed  on all sides that he may soon be  around again.  Ihe mock parliament of the  Epworth League of the Methodist  church is to meet again Monday  next when the "Speech from the  Throne " will be debated and the  second edition of the manuscript  magazine read.  The Kelowna Gun Club is being  revived and permission has been  obtained from the council to use  Boyce's field for trap shooting.  ' Titantic" Sinks on   Maiden  Trip���Terrible Loss of Life  The frightful disaster which happened to the White Star liner  " Titantic " on her maiden voyage  from Southampton to New York,  has spread consternation and  horror (brought the entire world.  The great ship, the biggest ever  built, wilh 2,200 souls aboard  struck an ice berg on Sunday night  last, off the Newfoundland banks,  400 miles from Cape Race,sinking  inside of 5 hours. The reports to  hand at present are of the mojt  meagre description. It seems, however, to be fairly well established  that only seven or eight hundred  of all (he big boat's human freight  were saved, these consisting chiefly  of women and children.  Wireless messages were flashed  in all direction by the wireless  operator of the doomed vessel, and  these were picked up at various  points, several liners racing at once  to the scene of the disaster, only lo  find, instead of the magnificent  floating palace which had been  making its way across the Atlantic,  bits of floating wreckage. T he  " Carpathia," it is reported, picked  up (hose who were rescued from  the life boats of the "Titantic" and  is proceeding wilh them to New  York. As the only reporls yet  made known are brief and fragmentary messages by wireless,  there is yet some hope that more  of (he passengers may have been  saved, but the greatest fears are  entertained thai (here has been  (errible loss of life.  The " I i(antic" was built recently  at a cost of some $10,000,000 and  cargo is valued at millions more.  Among the passengers were Col.  and Mrs John Jacob Astor, Alfred  G. Vanderbilt, Major Archibald  Butt, military aid to President Tafl;  F. D. Millet, the artist; Mr. and Mrs.  Isadore Strauss, J. G. Widener of  Philadelphia; President Hays of the  Grand Trunk Railway, J. B. Bruce  Ismay, managing director of the  While Star line and W. T. Stead.  The south-east corner of Ellis St.  and Bernard Ave. passed this week  into the hands of a local syndicate  who are almost ready with a  scheme to erect a fine tourist hotel  there. The price paid was $30,000  Less than twelve months ago Mr.  D. Lloyd-Jones bought this same  properly for $12,000 I  MR.

To United Slates $2. 00 per annum.  Advertising <at��S upon application,  lo fish or not to fish, that is the  question���whether it is better to  brave the terrors and ambiguities  of tlie law and hie with the rod  and line to where the toothsome  trout are spoiling for the bait, or to  devote the leisure hours for a few  days more to raking up last year's  weeds from the garden.  So far as the Okanagan is .concerned, the same doubt seems to  arise every year as to the precise  opening of the fishing season,  ibough why, it is hard to say. The  Act is explicit in its directions, even  though it gives no reason for the  difference in opening date between  here and the coast. The act reads :  " No one shall take trout of any  kind from the 15th ol November  in each year to the 25th of March  following, both days inclusiue, except in the waters of the interior  portion of th** province cast of the  120th meridian, where no one  shall take trout of any kind from  ihe 15th November in each year  lo the 30th day of April following,  both days inclusive. No trout of  any kind under eight inches in  length shall be taken from the Wat-1  ers of British Columbia, and, if  taken, shall be immediately returned to the water alive and uninjured.  No trout under three pounds in  weight shall be bought, sold or  exposed for sale in the province of  British Columbia, nor shall any  trout be bought, sold or exposed  lor sale during the closed season  provided therefor." As we aie  east of the 120th meridian fishing  commences here May Ist.  The very strict enforcement of  the statutory requirements this  year has caused a pood deal of  disappointment and rebellious feeling in the breasts of impatient  anglers, all the more so because  several beautiful piscatorial spec;-  inens bad been yanked from the  bosom of the lake oefore the police  began to get wise to the proceedings.    But from   headquarters  we  understand have come orders that  the practice must be stopp< d and  so���nothing for it but to wait.  There is a touch of humor, all  tbe more delicious because unconscious, in ihe report which appears  in an Old Country paper of a service held by the vicar of a parish  on the banks of the Tweed, for the  purpose of asking the divine blessing on the opening of the salmon  fishing! The service, it is said,  took place a few hours before midnight the proceedings commencing  wilh the singing of "O God, our  help in ages past, Our hope for  years to come." Fne vicar delivered an appropriate and impressive  address. Let us hope that the fish  stories he told were true.  No fewer than six money by-laws  are at present before the city council, calling for the borrowing of  $97,000 for various purposes.  By-law No. 109 is to raise $7,000  for the purpose of extending the  Water and Light systems. This of  course is something which will  occur annually if these services are  to keep pace with the growth of  the rity, the principal expense being the extension of the water  mains to districts as vet   unserved.  No. I 10 is to raise $10,000 for  the purchase of a site for a new  school building, and No. Ill lo  raise $2 ,000 toward the erection  of the same. Here again are expenditures from which there is no  escape.     As   is   generally   known  being installed under the Locei  Improvement Act, and made r  charge on the property benefited.  No. I I 3 is not to borrow mor<  money but to expend a surplus o  $387.40 from the sum raised to  build the implement shed for another purpose, namely the construction of an incinerator.  No. 114 is to raise $20,000 to  make permanent improvements to  our two m'in street;-, Bernard Ave.  and Pendozi Street. It is certainly  high tune these two thoroughfares  were pul into a condition more in  accordance with the growing im-  poitance of the town, and this can  only be done by beginning at the  beginning, thai is by properly grading, levelling and draining before  pulling on a rock surface. But  this costs money, and as Aid. Copeland has said, it would take a lifetime if the Board ol Works had to  depend upon current revenue.  A meeting to discuss these matters is called for Tuesday next,  Ao.il 23id.  Amusements  The name of Miss Wrna Felton  and the Allen Players is well  known among the theatre patrons  of Kelowna, and since their appeai-  ance here last spring the have been  repeated enquiries regarding their  return. I he company now comprising twenty people, will  appear at the Opera House for six  the government has made a grant I nights only, commencing on Mon-  of $35,000 for the purpose of building a school, conditional upon the  city providing a site, and raising  the balance of $25,000 towards the  building. It needs no argument to  maintain the contention that school  accomodation must be provided.  So there vou are.  No. 112 is to borrow $35,000 lo  make a start upon a sewerage system for the city. As the ratepayers have already voted money for  the purchase of a sewerage farm il  is safe to conclude that they are  desirous of having a sewerage system. And who is not? The council have now gathered a large  amount of information on the subject, and the time has come when  the problem must be definitely  taken up. It is proposed to put in  the main trunk sewer3 and disposal  works at the expense of the city,  the extensions or tributary   sewers  av next, April 22nd.  The bill for Monday night will  be "The Third Degree," by Chas.  Klein. 1 he bilan.ee of the repertoire will include "The Lottery  Man," " Camille," " Divorcons,"  1 he Transgressors," "Under Two  Flags" and "Resurrection." The  addition of the Royal Hungarian  string quartette will please all  lovers Or good music. They will  render all thr music between acts.  On Monday and Tuesday Dreamland presents a special reel entitle r!  j" Tracv, the   Bandit."      This is not  )a wild and woolly yarn, but the  true   story   of   America's   greatest  | Pandit. Of course the picture is  more or less sensational, but nevertheless  it is extremely interesting  I and being true is naturally worth  seeing.

Socalism for New  Republic  " I have finished the political  revolution and will now commence  the greatest social revolution in  the world's history," said Dr. Sun  Yat Sen, the ex-President of China,  in an interview at Shanghai, according to a dispatch from that  city to the London Daily Telegraph.  " The abdication of the Manchus  is only the means to greater development and the future policy of  the republic will be in the direction  of Socalism.  " 1 am an ardent follower of  Henry George, whose ideas are  practicable on the virgin soil of  China as compared with their impracticability in Europe or the  United States, where money is controlled by capitalists."  Dr. Sun says he has the full consent of the government to start his  propaganda immediately, whereby  the railroads, mines and similar  industries will be controlled by the  government. The single tax system, and, as far as possible, free  trade will be adopted.  Losses in the Coal Strike  Figures of coal strike losses as  given out have been revised.

A number of newcomers are  ooking up places here with a view  to settlement.  All are enjoying the fruits of the  earth in season, i.e., mushrooms,  asparagus and rhubarb.  More young apple and cherry  trees are being set out at " Enterprise " ranch. Mr. T. H. L Seeley  is also doing more planting this  season.  Mr. and Mrs. Ramsay rode to  Killeney on Sunday last. They  have visited a number of places  lately and speak with much enthusiasm of the Okanagan's beauties.  All look forward to the road being  continued to the rorth ; at present  riding after dark is apt to prove  dangerous.  " What made you so late ? "  " 1 met Smithsoff."  " Well, that is no reason whj , ou should  be an hour late getting home to supper."  " 1 know, but I asked him how he was  feeling, and he insisted on telling me  about his stomach trouble."  " Did you tell him to take Chamberlain's  Tablets?"  " Sure, that is what he needs.''
