Meeting of City Council  Matter of Fire Brigade Gymnasium���First Annual Report of  Fire Brigade Submitted.  The city council held its usual  weekly meeting Monday morning  last, the Mayor and Aldermen  Sutherland.Copeland, Millie, Blackwood, Taylor,  The following accounts were  referred to the finance committee  for payment:  C.

Raymer, rent of Cp.re House 25.00  An application was read from  Mr. A. J. Clarke for the position  of Superintendent of Works. This  was referred lo the Board of  Works.  A letter was also read from Ur.  Richards applying for the rebate  of certain charges for water.  'Applications from the Kelowna  Canning Co., and Mr. J. A. Bigger  for water connection were submitted to the council owing to  extension of mains being necessary. They were referred to the  Light and Water Committee.  Mr. E. Newby waited on the  council in respect to the lease of  the foreshore to Messrs. Jones and  Newby. He objected to the terms  of the lease being reduced to ten  years, when the council had agreed  to give th��ir p��<?di:������.r.r, Mr.  Aviss, a term of twenty years.  His firm were considering the extension of their premises, and he  thought the lease should be made  for the longer period.  Mr. R. H. Parkinson presented  an account for $275 ; $250 of  this was for making plans and  report in connection with the proposed city .sewerage scheme.  There was a misunderstanding between tin council and Mr. Parkin-  ion on this matter, several of the  members stating that the latter had  offered his services voluntarily and  without expecting payment. The  matter was laid on the table. The  remaining $25 of the account  being for rig hire in connection  with the surveying of the cemetery  was ordered paid.  A resolution which was passed  without discussion provided " That  in future all contracts given to any  person shall be in writing, and  that no notice be taken of any  orders given by word of mouth."  A resolution which also met  with the unanimous approval of  the council was to the effect that  the salaries of the city clerk, Mr.  G. H. Dunn, and of his assistant,  Mr. P. Dunn, be each raised $10  per month.  A motion was also passed that  the salary of Mr. H. Blakeborough  second engineer at the power  house, be raised to $125. It was  mentioned that Mr. Blakeborough  had qualified as a second engineer  but was only getting a third engineer's salary. The opinion was  expressed that he was too valuable  a man to lose, but that in order to  retain his services, he must be given  a wage more in accordance with  his qualifications.  Mayor Jones stated that the  council had been approached by  a number of people interested in  providing a gymnasium for the  Fire Brigade, for a grant to assist  such an institution. As the Municipal Clauses Act made no provision  for grants from the council for  gymnasiums, it was desired to  have the Act amended by the  addition of the necessary words.  Whilst in Victoria, the Mayor said,  he had taken the matter up with  the Hon. Price Ellison, and the  Hon. Dr. Young. They had 'approved of the amendment and suggested that a resolution be passed  by the council embodying the  proposed change. This could then  be brought before those who had  charge of the revision of the Act.  The   following   resolution' was  accordingly adopted : " That the  Provincial Government be asked  to amend the Municipal Clauses  Act so as to give cities power to  raise money by way of debentures  for the erection or establishment  of a gymnasium within their boundaries."  Aid. Millie suggested that the  request might also be made for an  amendment so that the city should  have power to sell electric light  and power outside the city limits.  In discussing the matter it was  agreed that it was one of considerable interest to the city. There  were quite a number of people  outside the city who would like to  be supplied with electric light, and  in course of time such extensions  might be a source of revenue to  the city.  The Finance Committee reported  concerning the adding machine  which had been on trial in the  clerk's office for some months,  lhey recommended that it he  purchased. The cost was $425.  with a discount of 2 per cent. The  machine, it was mentioned, would  easily pay for itsell in the time  saved. A resolution was passed  authorizing its purchase.  The Fire Brigade submitted  their first annual report (given on  another page), which was read by  the clerk.  The excellent work of the Fire  Brigade was very favourably commented upon by the different  members of the council.  It showed very good business  organization, loo, said the Mayor,  that such a report should be presented. It was u credit to the  town to have such a brigade.  The report contained a number of  suggestions which, althr.i ,h ..hey  could not possibly be all carried  out at present, might well receive  careful consideration.  The following resolution was  passed : " That the report of the  Fire Brigade be received and laid  on the table for further consideration, and that the city council  extend to the brigade their appreciation of the excellent work they  have done in the past, and wish  to assure them that they will at all  times receive the hearty co-operation of the city Icoiinr.il."  The matter of fire protection  generally came in for some little  discussion.  Aid. Taylor asked what would  happen if there was a fire on a  Sunday. It would take half an  hour to notify the brigade.  Mayor Jones said that Aid.  Millie was going into the question  of an efficient alarm system, and  would report shortly. Respecting  the matter of hydrants which had  been mentioned in the Fire Brigade  report it would be well for the  council to go over the system during the next few weeks and see  how many would be necessary.  Aid". Millie suggested the life of  the fire hose might be lengthened  considerably if the fire hall were  heated. By hanging up the hose  wet and allowing it to freeze the  rubber was destroyed and the hose  spoilt.  The city clerk drew the council's  attention to the fact that the law  required sub-division plans to be  registered at Kamloops within 30  days after they had been approved  by the council. This rule had not  been adhered to, and its neglect  placed the city at a great disadvantage as the map could not be kept  up-to-date, and it was very difficult  to keep track of the many subdivisions which had been made.  It was decided to take steps to  see that the law was complied  with, and the map revised periodically.  Aid. Taylor asked if something  could not be done to make people  clean up their backyards.  Mayor Jones replied that the  matter came under the control of  the Health Committee, and Aid.  Raymer would shortly bring in a  by-law dealing with it.     ,  A resolution was passed that the  agreement with the new scavenger  be signed.  Aid Sutherland, as chairman of  the Light and Water Committee,  brought up the matter of the  intake  for  the new pump.   This  had not yet been put in, although  his predecessor, Aid. Leckie, had  purchased 600 feet of six-incl  wood pipe for the purpose. Aid.  Millie had raised an objection it  the use of wood pipe, and had  expressed the view that it would  be advisable for the city to put in  iron pipe. The cost of iron would  be about $750 as against $275 for  wood.  Aid. Millie, speaking on the  matter, strongly opposed the use  of wood pip* in constructing tin  intake. Such a pips would be a  menace to the health of the people  as it would be impossible to caulk  the joints 'sufficient to prevent  leakage. The question of cost warf  not to be considered where the  public heahh was concerned, and  the difference of cost might not be  so very great after all, when the  difficulty of sinking a wooden pipe  was taken into account. By the  time sufficient metal, &c, had been  got together to rink the wood pipe  it would probably cost nearly as  much as iron pipe.  The views expressed by others  of the council strongly favored  iron pipe, and a resolution was  finally passed that iron pipe be  used.  A sub-division plan of Block 43  submitted by E. L. Clement, was  approved with a recommendation  that the lots be numbered 1-12  instead of  I 3-24.  It was mentioned that all the  Park Committee of last year were  willing to serve again, and a resolution was passed reappointing  them for 1912.  In voicing the council's appreciation of the work of the Park  Committee of lust year, Aid. Sutherland drew attention to the fact  that their appointment endowetl  them with powers similar to those  of a license commission. I hey  had the same control of the patk  that the council had of the rest of  the city. It would be well, therefore, if they had regular meetings  and kept minutes of their proceedings.  The clerk was instructed to  renew the insurance policies on  the members of the Fire Brigade.  The meeting then adjourned.  Rutland News.  From .ui aw. ccrr.iponoV.t.  A most successful evening was  the Magazine night at the Literary  Society Friday last. So large a  number of papers had been sent  in that some had to be left over  for a future occasion. Mr. C. H.  Leathlev acted as editor ar.d read  the papers, the authorship of which  was not'disclosed.  The first was a poem entitled  "Canada Ay 'o," and was cleverly  written in the patrolic strain. The  next was a nicely written article descriptive of life in the Okanagan  valley, followed by a short criticism  on mismarked fruit from Kelowna.  Another Rutlander took the opportunity to air some grievences in  our district, dealing chiefly with the  school question. One more drew  attention to the fact that it was time  to form the district into a municipality, whtlst "A Batchelor" bewailed the lack of suitable young  ladies who would not be overfond  of the bargains sales. Another  poem marked original was read,  rntitled "A song of Hope," received a well deserved praise. A short  article was read in reference to the  church not taking the interest it  should in the present peace agitations. The humorous iide was  well represented in a paper purporting to be a visit to Rutland after an absence of ten years, and  another humorous description of  a city man's efforts at farming,  raised roars of laughter. A very  clever article, descriptive of the  census man's troubles concluded  the papers. To-morrow is to be  a box social, and the following  week Mr. A. R. Lord, B.A., of Kel  owna, takes up the most important  question of "Canadian Immigration  Problems."  Al the weekly meeting of the  Kelowna Brotherhood an interesting paper on the "Moral Influence  of the press " was given *by Mr.  W. J. Clement. The subject for  next Sunday will be an address on  "Breadth of Mind," by R. B. Kerr,  at 3.30 p.m.   All men welcome.  Annual Meeting  Hospital Society  The Annual Genetul Meeting of  the Kelowna Hospital Society was  held in Raymer's Small I tail, on  Friday, Jan. 26th, the president,  Mr. F. M. Bucklaud, presiding.  Ihe secretary read the minutes  of the last annual general meeting  held January 27th, 1911, and these  were adopted.  In his report the president said:  I here had been 16 directors'meetings during the past year, 13 of  which were regular, two special,  and one adjourned to regular meeting. The average attendance of  directors had been jeven. Quite  frequently several of the directors  had been away for some time, but  It was to be hoped that in 1912 it  would be possible to record a  higher average.  During the yeat, Mr. Weddell  had resigned the treasurership, and  Mr. Gorrle had bten alecled as a  director and treasurer instead. The  President referred to the great  interest Mr. Weddell had always  taken in hospital mutters and that  the hospital was greatly indebted  to him for his past work, particularly this year of 1911 when Mr.  Weddell had been successful in  getting a grant of $3,000 from the  government of the Province, at a  time when things were looking  pretty blue financially, the hospital  being at that time about $ I 700 in  debt, and also greatly in need of  several expensive and necessary  improvements which the grant had  made it possible to have. The  grant had all been spent some  lime since.  During the >ear Miss Thomson  had resigned her position as head  nurse to take a more satisfactory  one, having been married,and Miss  Vigelius had been appointed to  fill her place. Miss Thomber had  been appointed to fill the place of  third nurse. 1 he salaries of the  hospital staff had all been Increased.  A letter was read from Mr.Payne,  who is auditing the books, regretting that he would be unable to  finish the audit in time for this  meeting, so that the financial statement had to be passed subject to  the auditors report and confirmation.  Copies of the hospital statement  were handed to all present, and  the presibent said he was sure  much satisfaction would be felt that  it was possible to show a balance  in hand and all accounts paid,  the balance being $329.85. This  was a new state of affairs and it  was due to the generosity of the  public, and the efforts of a few  canvassers during the past few  weeks in great part, Ihe gross  receipt i in subscriptions were some  $600 more than last year. The  expenditures and cost of maintenance had been proportionately  large. Some 37 more patients had  been treated thia year than last  year. There had been 194 patients  this year and 157 last year.  There had been some improvements made to the hospital. A  morgue had i been built costing  some $300, new furniture about  $200, the heating plant had been  overhauled, the radiators better  distributed and further ones installed, and it was now possible to  heat the building all over at a  much less cost than formerly. The  road had been shaled from Pendozi Street to the hospital, a long  felt want, for the accomplishing of  which they were indebted to the  City, no charge having been made.  Continued on page 0  Summerland Players in "Truth"  The production of "Truth" in the  Opera Home Tuesday night by the Sum-  merland Players was highly appreciated by  the large audience which was preaent.  The scenery and cot.ti.inei were distinctly  first-class, and the interpretation of some  of the characters would not have disgraced  the boards of a big city theatre.  The caste consisted of Mr, Wm. Sauter,  (who is also the manager and organizer of  the company), Mr. Chas. H. Cordy, Mr.  Austin Cooper, Miss Evelyn Higgin, Miss  Mary Sutherland, Miss Marion Cartwright,  Miss Dorothea Cooper and Miss Janet  Sutherland.  "The Latest in Gatters" will be  ��hown at Dreamland on Friday  and Saturday.  Construction of  Electric Line to  Start in Spring  Water Power will Develop  7,000 Horse Power  Surveyors are now in the field relocating the route of a proposed  electric tram line from Vernon  down the east side of Okanagan  Lake as far as Kelowna, designed  to tap a fruit growing district which  is now only provided with a steamboat service.  The work was authorized by Sir.  William McKenzie, president of  the Canacian Northern Railway,  who acquired the charter last fall.  Development of the Couteau water  power, twelve miles from Vernon  and the construction of the tram  line will be undertaken this spring.  1 he water power is said to be capable of developing 7000 horsepower. The proposed line will  serve as a feeder for the proposed  extension of the Canadian Northern from Kamloops to the Okan-  aean and Similkameen districts,  the surveys for which will also be  stnrled in the spring, under, it is  said, an agreement between the  railway company and the Provincial Government. Details of the  arrangement will be made public  in the Provincial House shortly  when Premiel McBride formulates  hi3 n~w railway policy.��� Province.  The Telephone  Deadlock  A Plucky Hindoo  Catches Turkey-stealing Half-  breed  A half-breed with a fondness for  turkey and a Hindoo, whose loyalty to his employer deserves no  little credit, provided an exciting  little drama the other day on the  Vernon road. 1 he half-breed was  riding into town when temptation appeared before him in the  shape of a plump gobbler which  was strutting unconsciously inside  Mr. Lewis' fence. The breed tied  up his horse, seized the turkev and  was making off. Before he could  get his horse untied, however, a  stalwart son of India's coral strand,  who was employed about the place  collared him. 1 he half breed pulled out his knife and severed the  lines which held the horse to the  fence, and as the Hindoo still held  on, he slashed at him with the  weapon, cutting his coat sleeve,  but doing no further damage.  The Hindoo, however, was not  to be shaken off, and finally, after  sharp struggle overpowered the  half-breed, and dragged him to a  neighbor's house, (the Leis family being away al piessent.) Here  a council of war was held, but the  breed begged so hard tor his liberty that he was finally allowed to  depart with a caution. It Would  of been better, perhaps, had he  been hauled into town as an example to others.  The plucky conduct of the Hindoo in sticking unarmed to his assailant is to be commended.  The strained relations between  the Okanagan Telephone Co., and  the city council and the telephone  subscribers reached a crisis this  morning, when a majority of the  phones in the city were disconnected by the company, for failure  to sign the necessary contracts for  the next year's service.  These contracts seek to effect a  raise in the former vales of two  dollars in the case of business  phones with a rebate of one dollar, making a net increase of one  dollar. Residence 'phones are  also raised one dollar, which however would be rebated for prompt  payment, leaving the net result the  same as formerly.  In accordance with the request  contained in a petition presented  to the council a' its meeting of the  22nd January, legal advice has  been sought by the city as to the  power of the company to raise the  rates. Pending this enquiry, the  council advised subscribers to refrain from signing any contracts.  Owing to the fact that the lawyer consulted is at the coast, up to  the time of writing no definite expression of opinion has been received, and the telephone system  is consequently in some confusion.  Some of the business men, mainly storekeepers, unwilling to face  the nerious inconvenience of having to do without the telephone  have signed the contracts to-day,  but there are.still a large number  who are holding back for the decision of the council.  Laymen'* Missionary Banquet.  The third annual banquet in connection with the Laymen's Missionary movement is to be held on  Monday next, February 5th, in the  Methodist Church. This year the  event will take the form of a congregation banquet at which the  ladies nnd young people of the  congregation will be present.  The chief speakers of the evening will be the Rev. Di. White,  Superintendent of Missions, New  Westminster, and the Rev. John  Robson, of Vernon, chairman of  the Okanagan district.  The programme contains a number of .missionary toasts which will  he responded to by leading members of the church. The toasts  will be interspersed with vocal and  instrumental music.  The supper will be provided by  the Ladies' Aid Society.  All members and adherents of  the church are invited to attend.  Items from Ellison  (From surown err..pendant.)  A good deal of speculation has  been aroused in this district by the  try lines which have been run by  the railway surveyors during the  past few weeks. 1 he line, as projected, enters this district through  the Postill ranch, cutting into the  Dickson property, taking a goodly  slice from the meadows own by  Mr. J. Christian, Mr. M. Hereron,'  Mr. J. Conroy and Mr. J. Carney,  then hurriedly passing through Mr.  Goldie's hog ranch to avoid colliding with the famous herd of light  skin rentiers, it cuts through the  young growing orchards of Messrs.  Lewis and Cross and incidently  spoiling the fine piece of ground  east of Mr. G. Monford's house.  It seems a pity that the line could  not have been run closer to the  mountain, thereby avoiding the  good looking orchards on which  so much money and care has been  spent. No doubt some petsons  will be benefited by the change,  probably a townsite on the Dickson  property would keep the Doctor  smiling, whilst our friend John  would appreciate a handsome new  house and barn, to say nothing of  the delight of the young people  were the railway company to provide a new skating rink in place of  the one they intend to abolish. Of  source everyone on the line anticipates that a station, or at least a  spur, will be placed on their particular ranch, and the trains will  be run to suit their particular needs  and the price they are going to get  for the land, why, everyone will  have lots of money and live happy  ever after.  Our new school is now completed and awaiting the necessary inspection prior to being taken over  by the Government. The building, which is a handsome one, occupies a commanding position on  the Vernon road.  The snow is disappearing rapidly before the chinook wind that  has been blowing for the past few  days, consequently sleighing has  mulch ilv gone out of fashion.  A meeting was held in the new  school room on Tuesday night last  to consider the re-organization of  the literarv society, and to discuss  the financial standing of thesociety.  After a warm discussion, the balance sheet of the concert held on  January 2nd was read and passed,  after which officers for the ensuing  year were elected as follows :--  President Dr. Dickson  Vice-Pres Mrs. A. L. Hry  Sec.-Treas  G. Whitaker  Committee: Miss P. Raymer,  T. Bulman, M. Hereron, R. Booth,  Mr. Guest, Mr. Homuth, Miae Orchard. Hi  The Orchard City Record.  Thursday, Feb. 1  7 HE ORCHARD CITY RECORD  Published soery Thursday al the Office.  Kelowna. B.C.  JOHX LEATHLEY. Editor and Proprietor.  Subscription $1.50 per annum.  To United Stoles $2.00 per annum.  Adi'ertrstrrg  ales upon application.  The report of the annual meet  lug ol the Kelowna Hospital which  appeal's in this issue should serve  to draw some public attention to  that institution and its needs. Kelowna Is particularly fortunate in  having such an insti'ution where  the sick and injured can promptly  get the best of attention. Only  lliose who have lived beyond  reach ol a hospital know the terrible suffering and inconvenience  which is entailed, and the long  journeys which have often to be  made before proper attention can  be secured.  That the local hospital is efficient  mid well managed is the opinion  of all who have had any connection with it. In lact, muny towns  ��� i great deal larirer than Kelowna  can not boast a huapildl anything  tike so well equipped and looked  after. But, alas, all this costs  money, and in spite of the gen  ( rous help of some of the citizens,  nnd the activity of the Ladies' Aids,  ihe funds available are not meeting the expenses. In the very  nature ol things a public hospita  il it is to he available to all classes  of the community can not be self-  supporting but must be in a large  measure dependent upon the genet nsity of the citizens.  Up to the present the rales charged to patients have been kept  within reasonnble limits, and it is  to be hoped that this policy can De  pursued. From the fact, however,  that the coat of maintenance is  greatly in exces' ol the amounts  received from patients, the directors are faced with the necessity of  raising the rates. This could only  be avoided by more liberal support  hi the part of the citizens, and it is  to be hoped that this will be forth-  c iming during the present year.  The Royal Bank has just closed  its 42nd year of business which  was the most profitable in its history. I he net profits during ihe  year amounted to 18.58 per cent  on the paid up capital which leaves  a substantial margin over the 12  percent dividend. For the first  time profits crossed the million dollar mark, amounting to $ 1,252,094,  which is $200,000 or over 20 per  cent, greater than during 1910. A  remarkable increase was made in  the total amount on deposit of  $ 16,215,201, which brought the deposits up over $88,000,000. Call  loans and Commercial loans have  increased by $6,000,000, and $7,-  000,000 re.-peclively. The percentage of the liquid assets to liabilities  to the public is large, standing at  49A per cent, as compared with  47.3 per cent last year. Statement  appears in another column.  Royal Bank's Successful  Year  At the Opera House  Rex Beacli selected Miss Grace Johnson  to play the role of Chere Maloette in the  New York production of "The Spoilers"  presented by Daniel Frohman, but who  v. j then but a short time in America, had  the conventional prejudice of the English  actress against playing unsympathetic roles.  When " The Rnrrier" was originally  produced at the New Amsterdam Theatre,  New York City, Eugene Presbrey, the  dramatiat, added his request to that of  Rex Beach that Grace Johnson be entrusted  with the part of" Neeia."  When the transcontinental tour was  booked for "Ihe Barrier" the author and  plnyright jointly specified thai the one condition they would impose on the management was that ihe leading role be entrusted  to Miss Johnson, therefore the laurels she  is winning, while distinctly her own, must  reflect credit upon the judgment of Rex  Beach and Eugene Presbrey.  Miss Johnson is not a star in this particular. There are no stars in "Ihe Barrier''  Company. It is a capable constructed,  evenly balanced, aggregation of player-folk  who are presenting thia delightful story of  " the last west *' in a manner that is of  universal delight to the t e-goers.  I he date selected for the long delayed  tour of "The Barrier" to appear in this  city at Kelowna Opera House ia on Friday  February 9th.  Late Mrs. Sargent  The death of the late Mrs. Amelia  Hartley Sargent, Aged eighty-four,  occurred at the home of her son,  R. W. Sargent, Rivers, Manitoba,  on Friday morning, January 26.  The news of her death came as  a shock to her daughter, Mis. Fuller, who had received a letter the  previous week from her mother  Baying she was quite recovered  from the illness from which she  had been suffering in December,  and on account of which Mra. Fu1-  lers was planning to go to her in a  few days. Her sudden death was  the result of a fall on the Saturday  before by which she suffered the  dislocation of her hip and from  which she failed to rally.  The decettBed lady spent a year  in Kelowna and was favorably  known in the Methodic church  circle, her Jriends receiving inspiration from her clear cut testimony  ef confidence in and loyalty to her  God.  1 he remains were laid to rest in  the Norwood (out) Cemetrv, beside  those of her husband, the late William Sargent, predeceased.

The naval service of Canada  has called for tenders for the construction of a schooner which will  be used for survey work on the  British Columbia coast.  For some time a rumour has  been prevalent to the effect that  the Hudson's Bay Company will  incorporate a separate concern to  take charge of its store business in  the west.  According to present plans, the  Canadian Pacific, Grand Trunk  Pacific and Canadian Northern  railways will spend between them  $50,000,000 in western Canada in  extension work.  A $37,000,000 suit has been  filed in New York by Henry De  Kay, receiver for the Mexican  Packing Co., against the Bank of  Montreal, for alleged damages arising out of the failure of the United  States Banking Co.  Britain has again scored in the  race with Germany for naval  supremacy, the new cruise-, -battleship " Lion " having just captured  the world's speed record for big  warships, with an average of a  fraction more than 30 knots an  hour in an eight hour run. The  German cruiser-battleship ' Moltke'  held the previous record, 29'7  knots.  Le Devoir, Mr. I lenri Bourassa's  piper, says n Nationalist member  of the House of Commons will  move at a very early date that the  naval bill adopted by the Laurier  Government be repealed.

R. land department, has  just closed the largest land deal for  which cash was paid, that has ever  been consumated In Western Canada. The land which comprises  500,000 acres, was sold to an English syndicate, the names of the  members, for the present are withheld.  The property lies in the Humboldt district, Saskatchewan, a  large part of it in the near vicinity  of the main line of the C. N. R. A  large portion lies fifteen miles east  of Rosthern and north of Bruno,  Howell and Vernda. It is the in  tention of the purchasers to bring  out young English and Scotch farmers, whom thev will assist in putting the land under cultivation.  This is the season of the year when  mothers feel very much concerned over  the frequent cold, contracted by their children, and have abundant reason for it a.  every cold weakens the lungs, lowers the  vitality and pave, the way of the more  serious diseases that so often follow. Chamberlain a Cough Remedy is famous for its  cures, and is pleasant and safe to take. For  ���ale by all dealers.  One of the boldest bank robberies for a long time was perpetrated in Vancouver last Saturday  when the Royal Bank at the  corner of Main Street and Seventeenth Avenue was held up and  looted in broad davlight by two  men. At the point of the revolver  the staff were driven into the vault  and the robbers cleaned up all the  money in sight. The ledger  keeper, who refused to enter the  vault, was knocked insensible with  the butt of a revolver. The men  got clear away with nearly $2,000.  The river Thames has been in  flood during the past wei-k and  1,000 homes in the upper valley  were inundated. Rescue parties  were sent out in rowboats, and  hundreds who were forced to  spend the night on their housetops  were taken off overcome by cold  and exposure. Many cattle and  horses were drowned in the backwater.  A movement is on foot to have  a main highway between Vancouver and New Westminster paved  at the expense of the auto club,  private parties and municipalities,  on condition that the government  does likewise with an international  highway south of New Westminster  to the boundary. The New Westminster section will then be named  King George Avenue, and the idea  is to have His Majesty (pen the  thoroughfare during his contemplated visit here next year.  After a lapse of nearly two and  a quarter centuries since his death,  London paid a belated tribute to  the memory of John Bunyan, when  a national memorial window in the  north transept of Westminster  Abbey was unveiled with impressive ceremonies.  Work of Okanagan College  At the Baptist union convention  at the coast last week a report on  the work of Okanagan College was  submitted by the president:  Okanagan College has 102 students enrolled, of whom 12 took  only the gymnasium course. There  are 5 I girls and 50 young men. Of  these 39 are from Vancouver. The  Baptists number 67.  It is desired to raise $30,000  within the next three years; otherwise the college is threatened with  retrogression and possible extinction. Okanagan College was founded only five years ago, when the  membership in the Baptist Church  in British Columbia numbered only  2000. The present staff could handle many more students.  The treasurer's report, read by  Mr. C. S. Stevens of Summerland  showed receipts for the year of  $30,399.54 ; disbursements of $31 ,-  567.84; assets of $102,625, and  liabilities of $40,917.

Some remarkable experiments were  made not long since at the University  of Geneva by M.

In a recent  Interview M. Pictet states that his  rirst experiments upon life at very  intense cold date nearly eighteen  years back. He became convinced  that if the chemical reactions of u  living organism could be suspended  without causing any organic lesion,  the phenomena of life would disappear, but these would come back as  soon as the organism was restored  to the usual conditions.

In the tropics tlie  tremendous evaporation induced hj  the bluslng sun causes thu water to  Le much more suit than It is In  higher latitudes. For about 30 degrees  loth north and south of the equator  the waters of the world's oceans are  ol mi exqulHlle azure. Beyond tbeae  latitudes the blue lades and ohangcB  to green, and iu the Arctic and Antarctic Oceans tlie greens are almost  as vivid us ihe tropical blue.  Tlie extraordinary hlueaess ol the  Mediterranean has two causes. One  Is that very few large rivers ol fresli  water run into this sea; the second,  that the Mediterranean is practically  land-looked, and, being exposed to a  powerful   sun,   evaporation   Is   greal  By actual test the waters of the Mediterranean are heavier and more Bull  Hum, lliose of Ihe Atlantic,  But blue and green are not the only  colours observed In the world's Bens  and oceans. In January, 1800, a river  of yellow water, three miles wide and  of enormous length ,was observed  running parallel with the Gull Stream  It stretched rrom Cape Florida to  Cape Hatteras, and was undoubtedly  caused by some tremendous submarine upheaval, probably of u volcanic nature.  Aguln, about nine years ago, the  sen turned almost black off u large  portion of the California coaBt. Tho  whole ol Santu Cruz Buy assumed  this extraordinary Inky hue, und Mailing came abruptly to an end. Iu this  ciiso the darkness seems to have  been caused by millions of tiny  animalcules, known ub whale food.  The dull reddish tint which Is occasionally seen In the Red Sou, and  which has given thut sen its nume,  has a similar cause. The water becomes full of microscopic algae ���  tiny weed.  China's Yellow Sea Is usually supposed to owe Its origin to the flood  of muddy water which Its great river  pours Into It. But hero again modem  science has proved that living organisms are responsible for Its peculiar  tint.  Occasionally, and for some cause ub  yet undiscovered, groat areas of the  ocean turn mllkwhlte.

Fire Brigade's First  Annual Report  Brigade Now in High State of  Efficiency  At tlie last meeting of the City  Council the first annual report of  the Kelowna Volunteer Fire Brigade was read, and the work of the  boys in protecting property, and  their excellent organization very  favorably commented upon.  Preceding the report was a  summarized list of the calls responded to during 1911. These  were I I in number: Sam Lee's  restaurant, S. C. Cosen's chimney  fire, W. S. Fullers' chimney fire,  fire in Lawson's grocery warehouse,  bush fire near Hospital,Filzpatrick's  shed, fire under sidewalk, J. N.  Cameron's blacksmith shop, Palace  Hotel chimney fire, outbreak in F.  A. Taylor's house, and Sharrock's  tent.  The average attendance of the  members of the brigade at fires  was 92 per cent. The total loss  represented was $1 1,800.  In addition to the fires the brigade held 43 meetings and practices  during the year.  The rest of the report, which is  addressed to the Mayor and council is as follows:���  The three serious fires entailed  a loss of $11,500.00. In the case  of Lawson's Warehouse, the fire  was extinguished before it had  taken any hold on the building;  in the case of Sam Lee's laundry  all the hose was used to play two  streams on the building and at  Cameron's all the hose was used  (or three streams. The last two  mentioned cases illustrated the  extremely inflamable nature of  frame construction, the danger to  surrounding builjings and of a  general conflagration. Sam Lee's  fire endangered all China town and  Cameron's, the main business section of the city.  In one case the fire was due to  gross carelessness and in the cthei  two cases the cause was not evident and we believe that fire waste  such as this is to a great extent preventable by removing causes that  tend to endanger and by providing  means of extinguishing incipient  fire.  The Chief has authority to inspect premises and enforce measures that will help to prevent fires  and we ask the co-operation of all  citizens, in our effort to provide adequate fire (ignting facilities, and  to prevent and remedy other causes  such as cracked chimneys, bad  stove pipes, waste paper and rubbish in cellars and ashes kept in  wooden receptacles, etc.  A point worthy of note is the  fact that one householder extinguished the fire in his residence by  having the garden hose connected  with his water service, otherwise  the house would undoubtedly  have been destroyed as it is situated beyond the zone of protection  afforded by the equipment of the  Brigade.  The hotels were inspected and  in cases where the by-law was not  complied with, orders for improvements were given, and at subsequent inspections we find the hotels fairly well equipped with escapes, but lack extinguishing apparatus.  Some Important Suggestions  The Chief and board of directors after careful consideration respectfully recommend to your  attention :--  1. The establishment of two  sub-stations, each to contain one  reel of hose, one near the Public  School and the second on Park St,  near Pendozi.  2. The purchase of five hundred  feet of hose, I reel, 4 nozzles, wrenches.  3. The immediate installation  of hydrants on all new mains laid  and the addition of extra hydrants  at various places.  4. That the best possible ur-  rangements should be made with  the Telephone Company so as to  insure immediate and simultaneous  alarm in case of fire, at the power  house, fire hall, Chief's residence  and also at the residenses of other  members of the Brigade who have  phones.  5. To secure copies of the City  and Provincial Acts relating to  building laws and fire protection,  to be placed on file at the fire hall  and would recommend that you instruct the city clerk to procure same  for us.  In conclusion the Chief and Directors wish to thank the active  members for the earnest and self-  sacrificing manner in which they  responded to calls and the fearless  and intelligent way in which they  attended to their duties, and we  trust that the citizens of Kelowna  will show their appreciation of this  by aiding them in every possible  way.

In all the various sports we have  been very successful, in the War  Canoe alone we won 15 out of 18  races, entitling us to hold 4 cups  and I shield and winning outright  0 sets of medals.  Too much praise cannot be given to the Lacrosse boys for their  gallant effort to win' the Inter-Valley trophy, which they only missed  by a small margin.  lu organizing the gymnasium we  feel that our efforts have been highly successful in furnishing the  young men of the city of Kelowna  a place to spend their evenings and  providing them with clean physical  sport.  Regular classes are held three  times a week for men and on Tuesday night for ladies under the  instruction of an able gymnast.  1 he success of these sports is  due, chiefly to associate members  who kindly volunteered their services, for which we ask them to accept our heartiest thanks.

Will Be  Tremendous Concern  As some of our stockholders may not  fully understand the organization and plan  by which we an* piovictinji immediately to  build a factory fur the manufacture of mat-  lies in Briti?li (olumbia, (lie toilr.wintf  ^ill perhaps It   informative,    gald   C.   I..  Godding, fiscal agent fur the Dominion  Match Company:  When Mr. Wm. H. Prker, the inventor  of the Paikrr process, was approached for  the purchase of the   lights    to    the   entire  Dominion of Canada for his extremely valuable patents, lie wns unwilling to turn  them over to tin- Dominion Match Company, Limited, taking atoclc in payment  therefor, unless natisfnetnry provision was  made immediately for the erection of n  first class factory operating under his patents, which would produce a revenue sufficient to pay satisfactory dividends on the  value of all the stock of the company. In  order to secure this, a group of underwriters of Tacoma and Vancouver was formed  who underwrote forty thousand shares of  stock, agreeing to erect within twelve  months, a complete going factory, in accordance with the specifications of Mr.  Parker. Such factory to be capable of  producing a carload ot matches a day, and  to become the property, free and clear, of  the Dominion Match Company, Limited,  upon its completion. Such a factory, Mr.  Parker knew would produce a revenue of  fully one thousand dollars per car, net  profit. Upon this agreement he turned  over immediately to the company, all his  valuable patents, rights, inventions and  formulas, upon which the entire earning  capacity in the match industry is based,  and which alone are worth over a million  dollars. Any other companies or factories  desiring to use the Parker Process in the  Dominion of Canada, now have to deal  with the Dominion Match Company, as  the owners of the process, which in all  probability wdl mean a revenue, within  the next few years, of more than equal to  that of the factory at New Westminster.  In addition to thus obtaining these enormously valuable patents, and a guarantee  of a factory which will produce fully 25  per cent, dividends on the entire capitalization, the company still retaiim in its  treasury two hundred thousand dollars  worth of stock, and wilh no indebtness  whatever to interfere with the immediate  earnings and payment of profits from its  completely equipped plant.  Although the underwriters had a year  to accomplish this, on behalf of the company, rapid progress is being made. A  splendid site has been secured at New  Westminster, with direct track.ige facilities  with the C. P. K.. the Great Northern Railway and the B. C. Electric Railway, and  also water facilities for holding the logs in  Brunette River. This site, where all three  railroads actually meet, is unequalled in  the entire province of British Columbia.  A contract has already been let for the  buildings, which the underwriters are  building, of a capacity of one carload per  day, Materials are being assembled on  the ground, work has commenced, and  the contractors state that given a fair amount of good weather, he hopes to have  ihe buddings nearly completed within  ninety days. Orders hnve already been  placed for the paits of the machinery to  be manufactured locally, and it is expected  that the machinery, vkill be completed  about the sanu' time as the buildings,  making full allowances, however, for unforeseen delays it is expected the factory  will be fully completed, turned over and  running within six months. This wdl be  rapid time for the establishment of such a  tremendous industry, which we believe  means so much to the Province of British  Columbia, and to the stockholders of the  ���Dominion Match Company, The company  officered by men who have pledged themselves to do all they can to make the Dominion Match Co. the greatest industry in  Canada.

Is the Remark and Question Asked by  a Great Many of the Kelowna Investors  For their information and others we will make the following statement:  New Directors for  Match Company  Mayor Lee of New Westminster  Joins Dominion Match Board���  Stockholders Hear of Rapid  Progress.  An enthusiastic meeting of the stockhold-  ers of the Dominion Match Company, Limited was held yesterday at the Board of  Trade rooms in the Molsens Bank Building  Vancouver. The preliminary work of establishing this big industry in British Columbia being well under way, the principal  stockholders who have been heretofore  the directors of the company resigned their  latter capacity, and to show their absolute  bona fides toward the British Columbia  stockholders, turned the control of the  company over to a new board of directors,  the majority of whom are local men of  standing. The new directors elected were :  Mayor John A. Lee of New Westminster  and Mr. John England of Kamloops, B.C.,  Mr. A. E. White, President of the Board of  Trade, New Westminster, and newly elected aldermen, was elected president of tlie  Dom i n i o n Match Company, Limited.  Charles j. Tucker of Vanconver, vice-president ; Ray Thompson, Vanncouver, secretary and treasurer, and Mayor John A.  Lee of New Westminster and John England  of Kamloops, directors.  A most encouraging report was presented of the progress being made in establishing the new industry. A site had been  secured at New Westminster, which having three Railway connections together  with light, power and water is considered  the best in British Columbia. Work ha*  already been begun upon the factory buildings, the main building of which is to be  fully 100 by 200 feet, two storeys high.  The special machinery is being made in  Vancouver, and it is expected that the  factory will be comoleted and turning out  large (,u mti ici of matches within six  months,  '"This is going to be one of the most  profitable Industries in New Westminster,"  said Ray Thompson to-day. "Mayor Lee  tuld me that he was heartily glad our industry was to be located in his city, that  he believed in its importance and dividend  paying capacity, and that as mayor of the  town he was glad to give every help he  could, and was pleased to serve as director  in an enterprise which he felt would be of  such tremendous importance to the prov-  nce.  When Mr. Wm. H. Parker, the inventor of the Parker Process, was  approached for the purchase of the rights to the entire Dominion of Canada  for his extremely valuable patents, he was unwilling to turn them over to the  Dominion Match Company, Limited (taking stock in payment therefore), unless  satisfactory provision was made immediately for the erection of a first-class  factory operating under his Patents, which should produce a revenue sufficient  to pay satisfactory dividends on the value of all the stock of the company.  In order to secure this, a group of Underwriters of Tacoma and Vancouver was formed, who underwrote forty thousand shares of the stock,  agreeing to erect within twelve months a complete going factory in accordance  with the specifications of Mr. Parker, such a factory to be capable of producing  a carload of matches a day, and to become the property free and clear, of the  Dominion Match Company, Limited, upon its completion. Such a factory will  produce a revenue of over $ 1,000 per day net profit, or $300,000 per year.  This factory is now under construction and will be complete, barring bad  weather, within ninety days.  The Company  is officered by the following men who have each pledged  themselves to do their utmost to makfl the Dominion  Match  Company one of  the greatest industries in Canada :  A. E. WHITE, President.   President New Westminster Board of Trade.  C J. TUCKER (Vancouver),Vice-President.     Vice-President Pacific Coast  Match Co., Tacoma, Wash.  RAY THOMPSON (Vancouver), Secretary..  Secretary Bridges and Thompson Timber Lands, Vancouver, B.C.  JOHN ENGLAND (Kamloops, B.C.), Director.    Retired Grocer.  JOHN LEE [New Westminster], Director.     M.ayor .New Westminster, B.C.  W. H. PARKER [Tacoma, Wash.].    Inventor Parker iProcess.  C. W. BRIDGES [Tacoma, Wash.], Director.    Capitalist.  As fast as suitable B.C. business men can be found, Messrs- Thompson,  Bridges and Parker will resign from the board of director* in xh& favor,  making the Dominion Match Company, Limited, a B.C. conceim, controllog by  B.C. business men.

The number of hospital days duiir.g'd.t:  year was 2,693, in l*��JO 2,62b* days.  Among the assets would be* found a  lar^e amount ol stove wood, anu.untitig Co  $250, and a supply ol drugs and dressings,  etc., worth $150. Insurance was paid ahead  for some 2J years on one policy and about  2 years ahead on another, iu value amounting to $287 50. Last year's liabilities,  $1,160, had been met, and it bad been  found necessary to Jwriie off ionic $1,400  of accounts uncollectable. 1 his was not  much seeing that it included accounts dating from I9l'8, the balance of the accounts,  some $1,400 were considered good. Ihe  depreciation on the building bad been  taken at 10 per cent, instead of 5 per cent.  as in former years, 5 per cent, being considered entirely too low. Ihe heating  plant, furniture, etc., had been charged  with 5 per cent, depreciation because tl.eBe  items had been renewed from time to  time, and the heating plant was in better  thripe than ever before.  The Society, said the president, waa  under a lasting debt to ihe Women's  Hospital Aid for their efforts. Through  them the hospital had always been supplied with linen, and this was a vety large  Item indeed, and they had also conributed  generously in cash, some $45i, 'at critical  times during the year. The country branch  of the Girls' Hospital Aid had also done  great service, they having contributed  $218, in cash. The public bad responded  generously to the requests for aid as waA  nhown by the statement. At the same  time, the president stated, there was no  question that a majority of the people of  the district had contributed nothing, which  w.is not right. The time was at hand  when the accommodation would be iuade-  q late, and without fuitber public aid il  would be impossible to carry on the work.  Statements would be mailed to the subscribers and others when the auditor's  report was received, and he hoped that  |ho public would be 'moved to increase  their past aid in view of onr future wants.  Mr. P. DuMoulin suggested that in future  statements made by the hospital a summary of information respecting the work  of the hospital and the average coBts, etc ,  be included. The Vernon hospital he  noted published a good deal of detailed  information   which was interesting to sub-  i Ktribers.  The Rev. A. W. K. Herdman congratulated the directors on the high efliciency  which had charactized the hoBpiul during  the past year. He had hnd many occasions  for visiting the hospital, but had never  found anything which could give the  ���lightest cause   for   complaint.     Everyone  i who had been in the hospital spoke in the  highest terms of the treatment they had  received there. It was a great boon especially to the   young   men   who   bad no  < home, and was worthy of the strongest  support from the citizens.  A hearty vote of itliauks woi tendered  the Women's Hospital Aid, the Country  Biancb of the Girl's Hospital Aid, the  Kelowna Club, and all the churches,  societies and individual contributors during the past year.  The election of * directors then took  place, the Board remaining the same with  the exception that Mr. Pooley took the  place of Mr. Reekie.  The matter of increasing   the   fees was  . broached, and it waa moved by Mr.  DuMoulin, seconded by Mr. Gorrie, that  this matter be taken up by the executive  of the hoard.  It was decided to bold the regular  monthly meetings in the secretary's office  in town instead of the hospital, on every  second Tuesday evening in the month at  7.30 p.m.  The board of directors met directly after  the annual meeting and elected their  officers for the year as follows:  D. W. Sutherland, president | H. J. Hew-  etson, vice-president; G. Gorrie, treasurer;  G. A. Fisher, secretary. With Mr. F. M.  Buckland these constituted the executive  council, the remaining directors being:  T. W. Stirling, Thos. Lawson, C.  Martin. A. H/Bell. J. W. Jones, W. R.  Pooley, P. DuMoulin, M. Hereron, C. W.  Dickson, j. F. Burne.  Messrs. Buckland and   Gome were appointed   the  Visiting  Committee   for  the  balance of January and for February.  At   a   special   meeting of   the  hospital  i directors,   held   in   the   secretary's   office  I Saturday   night, the   tenders   for   hospital  i supplies for the year 1912 were awarded  as follows: Groceries, Thos.

The two great elements of difference In tlie same landscape In winter  and summer are! of course, the pre-  iev.fu of snow in winter and of leaves  and grass In summer. If we could  look at our globe from the moon the  variation In its aspect due to seasonal  changes would perhaps be even more  striking than It appears to those on  the surface.  In fact, we Bometlmes lose sight of  the very Important part which vegetation plays in giving color to what  might be termed the countenance of  the pJahet.  It is not the higher forms of plants  that aJways produce the greatest effect in this way. Some of the most  striking scenes upon the earth owe  their characteristic features tt> mosses  nnd lichens, The famous "crimson  cliffs" of Greenland, which extend for  miles northward from Cape York,  derive their splendid color from the  growth of red lichen that covers thoir  hoes. The ' rocky pass called Ihe  (k)lden Gate iu tho Yellowstone National Park owes Its rich color and  its name to the yellow lichen covering  its lofty walls.  Considered as n Whole, the vegetation of a planet may give it a char-  iioterlstie. aspect as viewed from  space.

M. CROFT,  Bernard Ave., Kelown*  A Ifeinurknhle Chimney  A chimney two miles high with a  irook running through Is certainly  iomething of a novelty. Such a chimney exists in connection with the  upper works al Cwtnavon, near  Aberavon, in Glamorganshire,  Wales. This is how It came to be  milt:  About sixty years ago the copper  moke from these works was the  ilague of the neighboring eountry-  Ide. It settled upon and destroyed  'le grass for twenty tulles round,  vhile the sulphur and arsenic in the  times affected tlie hoofs of cattle,  ���nosing gangrene. The company  ried all sorts of devices to remedy  he trouble, hut in vuiu. Finally Mr.  tobeft Rrenton, who was later en-  ;lneer of the Slnd Railway In India,  olved the problem.  The copper works are at the foot  if n high, steep mountain. Mr.  '.renton constructed a flue or ehlm-  .ey running continuously from the  ase to about one hundred feet above  he summit, following the natural  lope of the ground. The brick which  Ined It and of which It was largely  onstructed was burned close by. A  mrall spring, rushing out near the  mountain top, wns turned Into the  hlmney, and allowed to flow through  Inio.'t its entire length to condense  'ho smoke. Once a year It Is swept  )ut, nnd about a ton of precipitated  opper obtained. Its top can be seen  or between forty and fifty mile*.  A   World   In   the   running  The  pl'Uiet   Jupiter,  whose   volume  !s 1379 times that of the earth, and  superior in dimensions and weight to  nil the other planets put together, Is  jusl ti'tw attracting the attention of  astronomers, M.

M.  I'ami lb> Kl.iiiitnurion, however, expresses himself With confidence In  the matter. "We are assisting at the  creation of a world. Under our  d^Ellod eyes a new world is being  created IU the infinity, and In Jupiter  we hull the world of the future."
