 yr  VOL. IX.   NO. 16.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY. MARCH 8, 1917.-4 PAGES  P.sfer Annum  "7=!?*  B. C. Legislature  Opened Thursriay  W. J. Bowier'ie Uader of  Opposition--]. W. Jonea  is Deputy Whip  Discuss Repairs to  Pendozi St. Bridge  Council Again Asked to Give  Cheaper Water Kates  For Gardens  Tbe Pendoii street bring* was again  the subjeot oi disoussion at the regular  roasting of the oity counoil lost Holiday morning. .On behalf of ths Board  of Works, whioh had been instructed to  take the matter up and obtain expert  opinion, Aid. Harvey suotoittod a report whioh included a map snowing  repairs considered necessary to put  the bridge into a safe and satisfactory  condition for traffic, lhe plan oaUeu  for concrete abutments on eaoh side oi  the creek, oarried up so as to lorm  supports for the central span oi ' tbe  bridge. Mr. Harvey explained that  these abutments could bs made to  servo the purpose oi retaining walls,  and at some future time the eartu  could be filled in behind them, thus  cutting i down the length of tbe oriole  by more than hub, and doing away  wish the necessity of renewing tne tons  which were already in an aavanceu  state of decay, and couid not be expected to last more than a year or  two. A rough estimate of the cost  was but ween feOO and ��U00.  'ihe necessity for spending so muoh  money evidently came as a shook to  the oounoil, though they admitted  that to carry out tne plan would make  ' good permanent job. li  . _lu. Kuttunoury said he had thought  that by driving a few piles and jacking up the bridge and, supporting it  where necessary, it might huvs been  put into snaps to last several years.  Aid. Harvey said that the contractors had given it ua their opinion that  to drive piles in the way suggested  would cost at least four or live hundred dollars, and as the job would be  a'very temporary one there .would not  be muoh to show ior it. Also in a  very short time they would have to  renew the ends, whieh would be a Very  expensive job.  Mayor Sutherland suggested aa an  alternative the oarrying out ol a portion oi the proposed plan, putting in  concrete loundationa whioh could be  used as supports for tne present struc  tore. The rest oi the worn could then  be completed at some luture date.  U wal eventually decided to have  specifications prepared, aad to oall tor  tenders.  Mayor Sutherland oalled aetentation  to the tact that there waa at present  no regular medical health ouicer for  the city, and the matter was referred  lo the Health oommittee to make arrangements.  It was mentioned that Mr. D. Mo  Hilian bad asked permission to place  irrigation water on to hia land on  ltichter street, connecting with tne  ditch in IStnel street, and conveying  the water down one oi the lanes noitu  of Bernard avenue. It was arranged  that Aid. Harvey and Duggan should  go over the ground and report.  Discussion on the former subject  brought up the old question of tne  oity allowing a oheaper rate, for waist  used for gardens and lawns, ft was  Aid. Buck who pointed out that in  view of the present demand oi the  government for greater production, it  was very desirable that some such ur  rangement should be made.'  Although a report obtaiuol bat  year had shown such a scheme *o be  beyond the capacity oi the present  pumps, it was deoided to go into the  matter again.  Announoement was made that tit,  offer had been received tor some r*tfp-  erty which had oome into lhe Vowes-  ���don of the oity through the tax sale.  The price offered waa the acouiu.ibiled  arrears oi taxes and interest, A email  amount had been paid as a deposit.  Aa the oounoil desired to give tho dig-  inal owners every ouanoo to redeem  their properties, it waa decided to  hold the matter over until the f< rour  owner had been notified.  The monthly polios report showed  five oases before tbe magistrate, and  ths amount of fines paid, $87.50. Trade  licence fees ooUected had amounted to  $160.00, and dog licences to $12.00.  A total oi 87 complaints had been received by the police and investigated.  O   Mr. Wilson Maodonald is arranging  to produce "In Sunny France': In  Vanoouver as a part oi the coming B.  C. Commercial Travellers' War Dance  programme in aid ol the Patriotic  Fund.  Provincial Taxes Will  Likely Be Raised  Must Have Increased Revenue  from Somewhere���Consider  New Taxes  The intention oi the provincial government to raise existing tax rates  and to impose new forms of taxation  in order to raise funds ior provincial  administration purposes, including  maintenance and bond interest is forecasted in what is apparently nn in  spired article in the Victoria 'limes.  In part it says:  "A number of suggestions have bee  made to the government as to method  by whioh the revenue liny he iiu-reas-  ed and new sources of income wuich  might be lapped. The 401 ir ament has  also before it the systems of other  provinces, and these in nil beiuj considered together with the plans whieh  the members of thu executive then-  selves have to suggsst.  "It it certain that efforts will bo  made to get the income tax piirl rrg-  ularly, and to secure the large amount  of arrears whioh are outstanding. It  is not unlikely that the rate of taxation on the larger incomes will be in  creased.  "There will be a revision of th.  taxation on automobiles beyond a  doubt. One of the matteri which is  before the government is that of a  tax on theatre! tickets, a method ol  taxation whioh hae been introduced in  Quebec and other provinces. Consideration is being given to lhe rate o  taxation on real and personal property, wild lands, coal lands, corporations, railways, and other sources from  whioh a considerable proportion of  inoome now oomes. ,  "Whatever tbe deolsion of the minis  try may be, tbe one thing that stands  out clearly, as has already been stated  is that there mUBt be a larger revenue  found somewhere. By what means it  will be raised will be seen when the  budget speech is made."  '    '    ���'������nn O'      'I".)     ������  Westbank News  (IVora oar on Corrs.pond.flt.I  Mr. A. Nicol, onr., is spending a  few davs with friends in Kelowna.  Mra. J. H. Campbell has b -en  visiting at Glenrosa this week,  being the guest of Mrs. G. Elliott.  The . packing school has been  postponed on account of severe  frost and not having a convenient  place to hold it in.  Mr. Ben Hoy has been conducting a pruning class here this week.  Seven students were seen to take a  great interest in the " art."  Mrs. J. W. Nichols, of Okanagan  Landing, and son Fred, are visiting her sister, Mrs. Marren, of the  Lakeview hotel. '  Miss Gellatly was a visitor to  Kelowna on Saturday ancK seemed  tc have had a busy time judging  by the parcels.  Miss L. Morrison, of Peachland,  arrived on Monday's boat to take  up her duties at the school during  the absence of Miss Weeks.  Miss Weeks left the hospital on  Friday to go to her home at Pen-  tiCon, but was in a very low condition, having to be carried on and  off the boat.  The school trustees have been  obliged to appoint a substitute tor  the school owing to the illness of  the teacher, as there are quite a  tew boys trying for their entrance  this year.  The King Edward clock has arrived and has been placed in position this week. It makes a decided improvement in the school, and  just appropriated the funds to five  cents.  Mrs. Curtis Hitchner, of Glenrosa  was a passenger on Saturday's boat  accompanied by her son in khaki.  He sure looked fine, with three  stripes on his arm. , Bert. Hitchner  also made the trip.  Mr. Butt, one of the trustees, was  in Kelowna Saturday looking out  for a teacher for the school. The  Rev. Mr. Dunn kindly offered to  fill the vacancy if one could not be  found, which was very kind of  him.  There was a large number of  passengers to Kelowna Saturday,  the Liberal Association holding a  Kelowna Creamery  Enlarges It's Plant  Heavy Cream Shipments Are  Looked For This Year  ' Extensive alterations and improvements are being made this  week at the Kelowna Creamery in  preparation for the coming heavy  shipping season, which it is expected will show some big figures in  butter production In the first place  the premises have been enlarged  by the- addition of the adjoining  store, a doorway having been made  to connect the two. In this new  addition space will be provided  for storage of cans, boxes, etc. This  will relieve the overcrowding  which has been gradually getting  worse, and makes room for sever-1  al important additions to the plant. I  These include a 250 gallon ripener.  thus more than doubling the capa-'  city of the creamery in this respect  by fifty gallons. A larger print cutter, handling a whole fifty pound  box of butter at once has also been  purchased and several smaller items which have been rendered  necessary. I  All this necessitates considerable  rearrangement, and it will most  likely be a few days before the]  creamerp will be in proper shipshape again.  Since the creamery has started  there has been a gradual  increase  the number of cattle in the district. Many good cows have been  brought in from outside points,  and farmers have been paving  more attention to the raising of  their young stock. Much of this  voung stock will be coming in this  spring, and from present indications the receipts of cream from  farmers  will  show  an  enormous  Dairying, Stock Raising  and Seed Growing  Excellent Series of  Farmers'  Institute Lectures���Endorse  Advertising Campaign  Money no Irrigation  Will Empower Banks to Lend  Money for Protection of Users  Irrigation legislation whieh the provincial government will bring down  this session is generally expected to be  in the nature merely oi' a temporary  expedient, a sort of stop-gap ior' the  protection of thu irrigationists until  ths time oomes when a mofe perms  nent policy oan be nettled upon.  in the series oi meetings held in the  distriot this weak under the auspices  of the tanners' Institute, special emphasis was laid upon dairying      und ..    .  stock raising, and the list of npeukers government, it is ooiuadsd, does   not  included several well-known exports in  M ��bl�� ���* **?��� PW' '"��  '��  ��'"  this branoh of agriculture, which Lids- "P0"   any- uwisrtirlrumr to% irMHrnpeeJ  fair in the not distant future to rival, "rfc"'011 bonds, to assist in the tak-  thnt    of fruit-growing.

A., is already giving evidence, lhat he has not gone  down to the coast merely to enjoy a  good time along with the rest of our  British Columbia legislators. Mr.  Jones is nothing if not energetic, and  according to accounts whioh reach us  through the coast papers, ha is already getting on to the trail of sonsl  of the obstacles io South Okanagan's  progress.  In an endeavor to get Vancouverites  a little closer to the interior orchards,  says a recent issue of the Province,  the South Okanagan member has just  interviewed the "Dominion Express  ofiicialswith a view of obtaining a  cheaper express rate vsr the Kettle  Valley Railway and ihe 0. P. R. from  Okanagan Lake points to Vanoouver.  At the present time the same express  rate to the coast from Penticton or  Kelowna holds good on either the K.  V. R. or 0. P. R.

Mar. 6, 1917  Orders by command for week  ending 17th of March, 1917.  DUTIES: Orderly Patrol for  week, Wolves; next for duty,  Eagles.  PARADES: There will be the  usual Patrol meetings duiing the  week at the call of the Leaders.  Patrol leaders and seconds will  parade at the club-room on Wednesday the 14th of March at  7.15 pm.  The Troop is suffering a loss it  can ill afford on Saturday of this  week when Scoutmaster Keown together with Mrs. Keown is leaving  Kelowna for Vancouver. Mr.  Keown is enlisting with lhe  Engineers for active service and  our sincere wish is that the ordinary course o( his training will not  permit him to reach the front before peace is declared in order that  he may be back with us again.  At a little dinner of the leaders and  seconds on Saturday night last Mr,  Keown was presented' With a  Thanks Radge which he haB earned so well, And which will be his  talisman 'to bring him luck in all  places of danger in which he may  find himself. EVer since coming  to Kelowna he has actively identified himself with the local troop  Snd his eager keen enthusiasm for  stouts and all things Scouting lias  been a stimulant to us all. It is  h'ard to imagine how we are going  to be able get on Without him, but  it is up to Us to carrv on, in the  best way we can, so that when he  returns tb us he will find a troop  of active scouts welcoming him  back to his empty place in the  councils of Kelowna First.  We are indeed glad that four  members of our troop, Troop  Leader DuMoulin, Patrol Leader  Godfrey Groves, Second Leonard  DuMoulin and Scout Jack Groves,  were able to rescue Holland  Burne from a very perilous position on Friday last. Mr. Burne  was. skating on the lake opposite  Mr. Stirling's boat-house when the  ice broke from underneath him  and he was in the water up to his  neck. The water was very deep  there as it was along way out, and  the water at, this time of the year  is not exactly like a hot bath. In  addition he was encumbered with  a long heavy, overcoat, but very  fortunately had his hockey stick in  his hands when he went in. Burne  was unable to get out as the ice  kept breaking with his weight  every time he tried, so he just supported himself with his stick held  out at arms length in front of him  on the ice.,  The ice was very thin and unsafe all around and it was a very  serious situation. Some of the boys  got a boat from'the shore, but as  soon as it struck'the thin ice the  bow jambed in it.and although they  tried to break the ice and paddle  atthe same time, navigation was  very slow and difficult.

With this n pe they  skated away round on the thicker  ice to where Burne was, bu* they  could not reach him over the thin  ice by throwing the rope, so they  tied it to a hockey stick one ot  them had, and with each one holding the rope, they got down on the  ice flat On theit bodies in single  file, the one behind holding the  feet of the one in front, and slid  ing over the ice in this manner  Second DuMoulin was able to get  near enongh to Burne to l*t him  grab the rope. They were then  very fortunately able to haul him  out without any further duckings,  After a little stimulate to take away  the effect of the icy water, (as he  had been in it about ten minutes  sltogether), Burne was as well as  ever and everything ended well,  for which we are all very thankful.  It waa very good work on the  part of our scouts and we congratulate them most sincerely on the  splendid way in which thev used  their opportunity. Particulars of  of the rescue have been forwarded  to Headquarters and all that we  can say now is that we shall hear  more of it.  The new rules relating to Tenderfoots and Second Class scouts  which were recently applied to  this Troop have now been applied  to every Troop in the province,  and are supplementary to the  Policy, Organization and Rules for  Canada. They also include rules  relating to the First Class Tests,  and we shall begin publishing  them next week. In the meantime  they are on the notice board at the  club-room and you can also obtain  full particulars from your leader.  The British gunboat Firefly,  which was lost at the time of the  retreat from Ctesiphon, hss been  recaptured. One Turkish ship has  been taken and one destroyed.

The lake presented Kelowna  skaters with one of the finest sheets  of ice we have seen for many years  last week-end. It was very thin,  however, and our Boy Scout column contains details of what  might have been a fatal accident  but for the prompt action of those  around.  At a meeting of the Kelowna  branch of the United Farmers of  B.C., held last Saturday, it was resolved that the standard of wages  for this year should be: White  day laborers, a maximum of 22Jc  per hour ; teamsters $40 to $43  per month and board ; and Oriental labor $40 to $45 per month,  without board.  The children's entertainment at  the public school was repeated  Thursday evening last, this time  for the benefit of the Red Cross.  The popularity of the entertainment waa shown by the large attendance, probably even larger  than the original performance. A  sum of $56.85 was handed oyer to  the Red Cross funds after deducting $6.50 for expenses.  The Okanagan Ambulance League financial statement for February shows cash receipts to the  amount of $108.25, added to the  balance from January of $116.41,  making a total of $224.66; expenses for the month were $108.55,  leaving a balance in hand of $ 116.

A very amusing scene  was witnessed when s mouse, supposedly liberated bv the servant,  presented itself amongst these  dignified custodians of mannerisms  A sketch by Harrv Lauder followed, in which Rita Maxwell took  the part of- a Scotch soldier (dressed to perfection), and Annie Gay  who was introduced to her part  only the night previous, of an English servant.
