 {{clotntui Utxorti  VOL. VIII.   NO. 39.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, AUGUST 17. 1916.���4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Liberal Leaders Speak  at Meeting Thursday  Condemn Government Policy  but Throw Very Little Light  on Their Own  Last Thursday Kelowna had a visit  from the Liberal leaders, Messrs. Macdonald and Brewster. Following  meetings in various points to the  south a mid-day meeting und lunohuon  was held at liutland sohool house.  In the evening a mass meeting was  held in the Opera House, at whioh  Aid. D. W. Sutherland presided.  From the standpoint of an eleotor  in search of information aa to thu  policy or intentions, of the Liberal*  should they be successful in ousting  the government from power and stepping into their shoes, the meeting wan  rather disappointing, too much time  being devoted to suoh matters as tho  famous, or ' infamous, writ of Mr.  Brewster, and to a further Btirring up  of the unsavory details of the plugging soandal, and too little to questions ot future policy, especially concerning this port ol the provinoe.  Mr. L. V. Rogers, the Liberal candidate, was the lirst speaker, and ho  managed to get in several sly iigs  at the government and all connected  with it. Referring to the Kamloops-  Kelowna railroad, he said .ie did not  wish to knock the C.N.K., but he  would like to knock in the spikes  whioh would tiniali it this year, Ue  would not say that the coming in of  the line was an election dodge, but if  the promise was fulfilled this time it  was at least an admission that Mr.  Bowser had not* done his duty before.  A change of government, he said,  would not interfere with the admin  titration of the Agricultural Credits  Aot, but he thought the million dollars available a measly sum in comparison with the six millions devoted  lo assisting ship-building. The welfare of the Okanagan, he JieKroJ,  depended upon a sufficient supply of  irrigation water at the proper time.  The government had spent huge sums  in developing Ijtrathcona Park in tho  middle of Vancouver Island, tho ivitsi  lano .Reserve and other things. Why  not have used the money to supply us  with water.  Another matter whioh oame in fur  his strtng condemnation was the (act  that although the South Okanagan  was now a separate constituency with  a population of 2,000, we were at'ill  tied to Vernon, that was, the go/eminent officials at Vernon had to suffice  for this district too. Why had the  government not had officers appointed  for this district too? Because they  were afraid of making enemies. The  Liberals, however, would very soon  have the privilege oi appointing the  offioers.  Dr. MoDonald, the Liberal candidate  for North Okanagan, also added his  quota of "condemnations" and was  followed by his more famous namesake  Mr. M. A. Macdonald of Vancouver.  He began by a reference to Woman  Suffrage, which he declared wai a Liberal plank stolen by tho Conservatives  He was strong in condemnation of  what he called the government's vote-  catohlng fantastic legislation, anil their  false charges against .their opponents.  Thoy had tried, he said, to bury him  under an avalanche of lies, but he was  still to the fore, and he believed there  weuld be a solid six liberals elected in  Vanoouver.  The P. G. E. Railway was dealt  with at considerable length. Tbe  road, he claimed, had been built entirely by pubKo money, the company  not having put up one cent. On the  contrary, they had divided the capital  stock amongst themselves. This was  the fault of the Attorney-General who  had failed to compel them to obey  the terms of the original agreemont.  The government's financial policy he  described aa a saturnalia of waste and  extravagance, and vigorously eondemn-  ** ed the borrowing of money for purposes which were not revenue producing. This had very seriously affeoted  the credit o'f the province.  He also attacked tho mcreaae in the  salary list and the multiplication of  oflioiale, whose numbers, he believed,  could be cut in two. One way he  suggested would be to replace the  present provincial police wilh a serai-  military organization who would combine the duties of polios with those of  fire wardens, game wardens, weed In-  New Bulletins of Interest  to Dairy Farmers  fn a very short timo the Department  of Agriculture, Victoria, will havo  ready for distribution two new bulletins of great interest to dairymen.  The first of theso bulletins to be  ready will be one entitled "Buttsr-  making on the Farm,': by T. A. F.  Wianoko, Dairy Instructor. The second one will be the "Care and Feeding of Dairy Cattle," by S. H. Hopkins, Assistant Livo Stock Commis-  sionor, which deals with .the scientific  care and correot treatment of dairy  cattle.

Want Boat to Connect With  K.V.IL Morning Train  The inconvenience caused by the Ituk  of proper connection between the  morning boat and the train from thc  coast at Penticton was the subject oi  a resolution moved by Mr. C. E. Weddell at the Board of Trade meoting on  Tuesday evening last. It was pointed out, that the Kettle Valley li��iin  from Vancouver via Hope, arrt/od at  Penticton, at 7 o'clock, two hour* idler  the boat for the north nad left Thid  meant that passengers For Kslow&s  and other places had to remain in  Penticton a whole day.  It was arranged that (he secretary  should get in touch with tlie railway  officials to see if thc schedule of the  boat or train, or both oould not be  modified so that the delay would be  eliminated. I  In connection with the "Free Fer.-v"  agitation it was decided to eommuni-  cate with the Westbank Fartttecs' Institute with a view to arranging a  delegation to wait on the Pr-mier on  his visit Monday.

He found readier sympathy as he  scored tho patronage system, and tho  underground machinations of party  polities, evils which apparently wero  entirely monopolized by the Conservative government, and vigorously declared his intentioti to "smash the  political machine."  Tlie P. G. E. guarantees were next  gone into. Tho Liberals, he s*id had  not objected to that, being only opposed to guarantees for main line construction. The oompany, however,  had not lived up to their agreement,  and the government had advanced  money without insisting upon a corresponding investment from the company. This led to an explanation of  tho "writ" with which the publio is  already familiar.  Coming to the "plugging",scandal  at the by:eleclion, Mr. Brewster made  no secret of his belief that the whole  business had been engineered by the  Conservative party, with Bowser aB  ohief conspirator, and declared that  they would not rest until the details  of the affair had been laid bare.

Retiring bell sounds at 9.30;  lights out and silence expected at 9.45.  Nearly all of. the forty family tents  are occupied. ABide from these there  are three meeting tents and a dining  tent.  Members are present from .nearly all  points in the Okanagan Valley and  from  some Kootenay points.  The first meeting was held Monday  evening when Pastor C. F. McVagh,  president of the Western Canadian  Union Confetence, gave an in toduet-  ory address, in which he gave a ! r^ei  review of the progress of the movement represented by the camp meeting.  At the close of 19141 the total membership was 125,844. Ihe number of  baptised additions during the last  year was 15,000. The work is now  being carried forward in 87 qifferent  countries and in 117 languages. The  church publications 'Ufa issued in -'3  different languages. There are now  over 5,000 evangelistic labourers. Over  1,600 are employed as teachers in  church schools and denominational  colleges; and 1,700 in aanitoriums and  treatment rooms in home and (oruiyn  lands.  In his first address Pres. McVagh  emphasized the fact that Seventh day  Adventists stand on the same grounds  as all other reformed churches, namely  the Bible and the Bible only as a rule  of doctrine. He b aid lb. it hi received  his first instructions which later le^  him to accept the adventist doctrines  in a Presbyterian Sunday school of  North Augusta, Ontario. "Tl/s explains why," said the pastor, "the Ad-  vontists find no fault with the original  teaching of the other Protestant  churches, nnd t he reasons why they  differ with them in some practices will  be explained during the ovening." On  Tuesday evening a stereopticon lecture  was given to a very interested audience. The lecture on the suhjeet of  the "Millennium" given W��'ln.islay  evening proved to be of unusual interest to the audience, in spite of tho  heavy rain. In connection with the  prophecies of tho Bible which gives a  remarkable contrast between what the  people would say and what they would  do. Pastor McVagh read the words  of Charles Edward Jefferson who wrote  a few months before the present war  broke out. as follows: "Christ, ndom 's  bristling with guns. To the man in  the street this is perplexing, Hepeat-  ed assurances have Iwon given him  that the cause of peace is advancing.  Peace >organizations multiply amazingly. Never havo the riders and state 4-  men mado so many loving speeches as  within the last dozen years. Nothing  haB so flourished during the pre^nt  generation as the cause of peace���except the manufacture of guns. To  the man in the street the millennium  seems almost at hand, but when he  turns to look for it he finds himself  staring into the muzzle of a gun.  "The lion and the lamb lie down  together, and for the Brst timo in  history the lion is inside the Iamb.  Tho lion is now covered with wool,  ami the name of tho beast is "Armed  Peace."  Friday evening at the Camp Meeting  pavilion, Pastor McVagh will speak on  "The Christian Sabbath." Saturday  evening Evangelist Wood will give a  stereopticon address, and Sunday evening '  Pastor McVagh will speak    on  The Eastern Question."  DAVIS.-On  Sunday, August  13th, to Campbell.

Alfalfa and Clover  Seed Production  Suggestions on  Handling and  Harvesting the Crop    UJ  When  Should  tho   Seed  Crop  Ire   Cut?  Ordinarily the crop should be out  when from two-thirds to threc-fourllm  of the pods haw turned brown. By  outUng at this stage lhe greatest per-  ccntagQ of good seed can bo save.l  without trying to save either the very  early or the very lato maturing seed.  How Should the Seed Crop  be   Harvested ?  An ordinary mower may sometimi s  be used for cutting the Alfalfa seed  crop. This machine without attachment s is not entirely satisfactory, as  (the wheels and the tramping of tl.e  horses upon the succeeding round are  apt to scatter a large number of the  pods. Ynrionfl deviees are used to  bunch the alfalfa as il is cut, and extra hands are employed to remove  these bunches from lhe path which tha  horses and machine will follow when  cutting the next swath.     A simple de  vice which is   frequently  employed   is  as follows:  A    canvas    is tied to the frame of  Ithe cutter bar so that the crop as it  .is    cut falls upon it.     One man may  walk behind and hold up the bacit ol  the canvaB until the bunch c.Heeled h  sufiiciently large, when it  is dropped.  Where    the alfalfa is not loo heavy  j an ordinary gruin biuder may bo used.  'If    tho crop is cut with  tlie ordinaly  mower    nnd raked vUh a horse .n'  ��� a largo    percentage ' of tho seed poi  are    Habit* to     be    shattered  and  I  seed  lost.  To prepare the crop for thc coining  of tho huller, after eutt'mg it shuu  be bunched with pitchforks into sum  shocks soon after mowing, ''hit  lends lo prevent the shattering o* the  pods which is common when the ito|  is allowed to become alternately moist  and dry in the swath. By makii-  the shocks small each bunch may bo  Uttod to the rack in one forkful thus  reducing the amount of seed lost lo a  minimum.  Since it is essential lit At lis liUlt  rain an possible reach the ilialfn Iron  the time it is harvested lo the timi  it is marketed, the crop should be  slacked as soon as it is dried sulliei  ently. The efTects of rain on iho ni  fuHa crop after it is*mature are threefold : the scattering of the seed, th  discoloration of the sued; anil pCtimul  ure sprouting of the scinl if ihe inoUl  condition continues.  When stacking tho crop, thc hit\  racks used should have a matohed  lloor bottom or should be covorcd  with canvas or a tarpaulin to si  scattered seeds.  in building the stack a foundation  of hay or straw will save any seed  that may scatter, Hy building the  stack narrow, Ihe danger of heating  is avoided.

I'Mited hy "I'ioneer."  We e\lend congratulations .to our  Acting Commissioner, the Reverend  and Honourable T. It. Heneage, who  has just beon awarded the Honourary  Silver Wolf, for his untiring work in  connection with the boy icout move  ment in this province.  At the Regatta to lie hold on Saturday, there are two races for BOOUls  alone: a fifty yards handicap and the  relay. We trust that there will bo  many entries from the troop, so that  the public will at any rate see a good  race. In this connection wo hnv.1  been rather disagreeably surprised to  hear so many say already "Oh, I am  not going in;" when wo enquire the  reason wo are informed, "Oh, because."  I nfotiunuteK, only ono person can  Win a race, and it no- one entered for  'a race unless he thought he had nine  1 chances out of ten of winning, there  would be very few races. There are  t of course, some legitimate reasons  ] which may prevent some of ua enter-  'ing for these races, but for the sake  i of being "good sports" everyone who  'possibly can should enter for everything.  Resides the above races for scouts  alone, there are the boys' 50 yards  swimming and the hoys' diving, both  for boys under sixteen years. The  Kelowna Aquatio mombers' GO yards  handicap; the men's 50 yards open  swimming; running spring board dive;  greasy polo; crab canoe race; canoe  tilting; cock lighting, etc., and what  in the matter wilh us putting in a  team  in tho men's relay race?  Wo want all scouts who aro going  in for the races to bo at the Aquatic  pavilion in their bathing suits on Friday next, the 18th, at 4.30 in the  afternoon, whon their times will be  taken for the handicap.  lop liuished with grass hay in* covered  with canvas to shed the water in case  of rums.  GLOVEB SEED PRODUCTION  The seed orop should bo cut about a  week or ten days after tho last blossoms have faded and when tho last  maturing seeds in the top of theso  heads have reached tho soft-dough  stage.  In cutting either clover or alfalfa  for seed, tho danger of scattering the  segd is partially eliminated by cutting  while the dew is on the crop, either  in the early morning or in tho lato  evening.  After cutting the clover crops may  bo handled in a similar manner to the  handling of the alfalfa crop which is  outlined above.  The department machine may not be  able to get around to your plot before the rainy season arrives. Safeguard yourself by taking all precau-  ions against the loss of your crop.  Keep a record of the cost, of saving  your crop of seed in order that you  may determine tho profit or Iobb per  acre.  As one of the department oflicials  will visit each farm and inspect the  seed plot during August or the early  part of Septemlwr, it is ntvessnry that  hose farmers saving seed should at  nice Bend in their names to-the secretary of the Kelowna Farmers' Institute, Kelowna.  We are indeed glad to note that  some of tho energetic boys at West-  hunk are endeavoring lo form a troop.  We wish them every succoss and trust  that if there is anything any of us  can do for them, they will let us  know.  Tho Curlews and Wolves have now  both had their patrol camps, and wliile  wo have not heard yet exactly how  much scout work was accomplished at  the camps still it haB boon a beginning, and the question is who will be  next? The school holidays will soon  be over, and we ftlso wish to have a  1'atrol Leaders' and Otticers* weekend  camp.  Speaking of a Patrol Leaders' conference, several of the big cities in  England have recently hold such conferences, managed by the Patrol Leaders entirely, and not so very long ago  one wns held in Vancouver. We could  billet patrol leaders hete from all over  the Valley, and wo are sure that ti  would be a splendid thing for the  movement. Think \i ovei, Patrol  Leaders, and let us beer from you  some difinito suggestions immediately.  Tho Italian government has publish;  ed a decree forbidding Italian subjects  throughout the world maintaining  business relations with the enemy.  The'decree particularly affects trading  between Italians and Germans. It declares all contracts void and threatens1  offenders with severe punishments.  When Scout Master Weddell was    in  Vancouver    recently, he wns walking  in    Stanley     Park and a young boy  came up to him, stood at tho   alert,  and  saluted,  enquiring if he wore   a  Scout  Master,  having  recognized him.  by his buttonhole badge.     This   boy  turned out to bo I\  L, Frank Woodward of the Cuckoo patrol, Church of  the   Redeemer Troop, Calgary.      He  had  just arrived in Vancouver    from  Calgary that morning for a few weeks  holiday.     It ia a great pleasure to go  to a strange city and be recognized by  an  apparent  stranger who  turns  out  lo  belong to  the great Brotherhood,  It    also  shows  the  value  of wearing  the iScout Badge.     If all Bcouts lived  up lo their promise, and a scout goes  to a strange city where there may be  !a troop he should not be a stranger  very    long.     We believe that this   is  . one of tho finest ideals in connection  rwith  but movement.     The Church  of  I the Redeemer Troop has n membership  of    150,     nnd if they ure all of the  . calibre of P. L. Woodward they must  | be a very fine troop.

Oak Hall Monk, between the hours of 2:30 and 5:30 p.m.  on Saturday    of each week, or    _���;���  To the Electors of South Okanagan, B.C.  Dear Sir,���  No doubt you are already aware that Thursday, September 14th has been fixed aa the  date of the palling in the forthcoming Provincial Election.  As you will be called upon to vote for the South Okanagan Riding, I would like, as  candidate selected by Conservatives and a large body of independent business men and  farmers, to draw your attention to some of the more important considerations which make it  urgent and necessary that your vote and influence be used on my behalf.  The Okanagan valley and particularly the district of South Okanagan to which you belong,  is at the present time at a stage of development which demands the greatest care and active  co-operation of all concerned. Indeed, it might be said that the purely local needs and  problems of the district are so important as to entirely overshadow those of a wider provincial  character.  No one, I venture to say, of all those who have resided for any length of time in the  district, has had the temerity to deny that, for productiveness of soil, climate and general  desirability as a place to live in, our valley stands in the front rank of all the wide Dominion.  It is obvious, however, that these things alone are not sufficient to ensure the permanent  prosperity of the district, and there is no doubt that in the past too much emphasis has been  laid upon the natural advantages of the valley and too little upon the organization of necessary  facilities such as transportation, extension of reliable markets for fruit and produce, and the  provision of an absolutely permanent, cheap, and abundant supply of water for irrigation purposes. Given these things, which would ensure to the farmer an adequate return for his labors,  the natural attractions of the valley would compel a development out of all proportion to what  has yet been achieved. -^ ,  The government of British Columbia during the past session adopted many measures of  far-reaching importance to the farmers of the valley, chief amongst �� hich might be mentioned  the Agricultural Credits Act, affording much-needed financial assistance to the farmer who is  struggling to put his place on a revenue-producing basis. The system is one which has worked  wonders in many other countries, notably in New Zealand.  Much progress has also been made in the preliminary gathering of data leading to the  government taking control of irrigation water supply, and this I regard as perhaps the most  pressing of all local problems. I am strongly in favor of government provision and ownership  of storage reservoirs and main canals, leaving distribution systems to be handled by water  municipalities specially organized amongst water users themselves. This would ensure a degree  of permanence which nothing else could give, and cheaper water rates to farmers.  For the first time the district of South Okanagan has been given the opportunity of direct  representation in the House, and it is essential especially at this critical time that a representative be chosen who has thorough knowledge of local conditions, and who is in intimate touch  with its needs and problems.  As you know, 1 have been resident in Kelowna for a number of years and all my interests,  financial and otherwise, are bound up with the district. For the past ten years I have been very  closely connected with almost every local movement for the benefit of the district���the Board  of Trade, the Growers' Exchange, Farmers' Institute, Agricultural Association, Kelowna Creamery, Kelowna Hospital, and others. Of my work on the City Council I need say no more than  that I have been a member of that body for the past seven years, five of them as Mayor of the  city. In all these various activities I have had an opportunity which has fallen to few of gaining  valuable experience and insight into the needs of the district, and I am willing to place this  experience at your disposal in looking after your interests should 1 be elected to the legislature.  During the past few months the government of which the Hon. W. J. Bowser is the head, has  been subjected to the most venomous and bitter attacks, and serious charges have been  laid in the wildest possible manner. Happily these charges have been disproved in the most  convincing manner, and in some cases have rebounded to the lasting discredit of those who  laid them. The record of the past session of the House, too, is admitted on all hands to be the  most remarkable in the history of the province for the number and character of the beneficial  measures which have been passed.  There may be some, however, who from purely party considerations would hesitate to  vote for one who admitted Conservative leanings. To such I would say that while 1 certainly  would support the government in the highly progressive policy which has characterized the  past session, 1 am not a hidebound party politician, and would at all times place the interests of  the district before any party considerations.  Yours sincerely,  J. W. JONE&
