 iUcorb  ntimmmm  tfeWA  [Cj3&mrvafy\  VOL. VII. NO. 22.  Discuss Hydro-Electric  Power Scheme  Council and Company Reach  .   Preliminary Understanding  The Mission Creek hydro-electric scheme was advanced a step  last Friday morning when a rep  resentative of Messrs. DuCane  Dutcher & Co., the engineering  firm who have the matter in  hand.appeared before the council.  The proposal had already been  laid before the council, and lia'l  received favorable consideration  ��� The Light and Water committee  were charged with the duty of  making' an investigation and the  following report was submitted  to the meeting:  To His Worship the Mayor and  City Council, Kelowna, B.C.  Gentlemen:��� In reference to  the proposition of Messrs. -DuCane, Dutcher & Co., to furnish  electric current to the city at  the rate of 2% cents per kilowatt hour, which was referred  to our committee for consideration, we beg to advise you that  we have gone carefully into this  matter, but, owing to the fact  that neither the output of current for the supply of .water is  metered, the figures submitted  herein cannot be considered other than approximate. *  The amount of current sold,  with that used for street lighting purposes during iy 14 seems  to have been 255,000 kilowats.  Allowing for transmission losses, the total current generated  would not be short ot 310,000  kilowatts. Making due allowance for the cost ol pumping,  the generating expense would be  as follows:  Fuel.... .,.. ���   lU.aaa.Qo  .

He said  ihtr) Board' of   Trade of Great Brit-  Total $22,800.00  Reducing this to the cost  per  kilowatt, we have:  .Cents  Oil, repairs  sundries 26  Wages, plant and office . .   3.9  Interest and depreciation.   2.9  Fuel..    1.29  Interest and depreciation.   2.9  Total    7,35  By purchasing current from u  hydro-electric company, the following saving could be effected:  Fuel    f4,ooo.oo  Oil, etc     500.00  Wages 3,300.00  17,800. .0  This reduction would represent 2.53c, per kilowatt, and  Would be the maximum price at  which the city could purchase  current.  The estimated reduction in  wages is based on the assumption that' steam would be retained for pumping, and from  information available at the  present time it would seem that  the present steam plant would  have to be retained, unless the  city wished to incur heavy, capital expense in installing new  pumping machinery and building a reservoir.  You will notice that, at the  present time, the only expense  that varies with the load is that  represented by fuel and oil,  which is 1.55c. per kilowatt,  this makes it possible for us  to supply a day motor load at  2 cents per kilowatt. This item  under the hydro-electric proposition would be increased to 2%  cents per kilowatt, making it  impossible for us to maintain  our present schedule of prices  We beg to draw'your attention to the fact that   pumping  whole question seemed to hinge  upon the rate for light and power and the signing of a contract  by the council for a term oi  years. The suggestion had been  made that current lor lighting  up to 500,000 k.w., should ue  supplied at 2#c. per k.w.; from  500,000 to 750,000 at 2#c; ind  from *":o,ooo to 1,000,000 at 2c,  the power rate not to be more  than i^c. per'k.w. He did not  see why his company could not  agree to those rates.  A difficulty presented itseif regarding the.pumps for thc water system, which were purely  steam pumps and could npt be  driven by motor. He thought  the company would be willing  to replace them at their own U-  pense with motor driven pumps.  With regard to the present  power house plant, he said that  the new company would no  doubt have to maintain a stand  by plant of some kind in case of  break down, and he thought arrangements could be made .with  the city to use their plant in  case of a stoppage until suifi  time as the company might pur  chase it out-right.  The length of the contract  asked for from the city was  next discussed. Mr. McLean  asking if the city would be prepared to go to the 10 vear term  as suggested.  Aid. Sutherland said that personally he would not recommend so long a term.  Mr. McLean asked how far  the city would' go. He 1 ointed  out that the undertaking would  cost about $120,000 and the  company could hardly be expected to put in the plant ou a  yearly contract. They were  looking to the city for their  main revenue, though ol course  they hoped to supply the ��ur-  rounding district.  Eventually it was intimated  that the council might agree.  to a five years' contract, which  Mr. McLean thought would be  accepted by thc company.  Aid. Raymer asked how long  the installation would lake in  case an agreement was reached.  Mr. McLean stated that construction could be started inside  of a month, and the plant  should be in operation within  three months.  Aid, Sutherland said the proposition would have to be submitted to the ratepayers and  the council would want a definite written proposal Irom the  company.  It was   mentioned  that  though the city would not  ceive much advantage from  scheme directly, it would be a  great benefit to the district surrounding.  A letter was read from thc Kelowna Hospital Society bringing to the council's atteution  the urgent need of financial assistance if the hospital were to  be kept open.  Alderman Sutherland, who is  also a member of the Hospital  Board said that while the city  might be perfectly willing to  make a grant to the hospital it  use as it was  mon-  and   26 mile  holes requ'je  aid, announcing the holding of  an exhibition in London with a  view to giving manufacturers  within the empire an apportun-  itv to show British goods in  preference to those of German  manufacture.  A committee consisting of  Messrs. M. Hereron and S. T.  Elliott, appointed bv the Board  to inquire into the condition of  the roads in the district reported as follows:  1. Between 17 and 19 mile  posts north of Duck Lake,  road badly in need of grading and drainage.  2. Between 23 and 24 mile  posts road requires grading  and scattered rails removing.  3. Between 26  posts, chuck  filling up. M  4. At Scotty Creek .bridge : a  large 'cottonwood tree  should be removed.

In reference to the K.L.0.  road there is the crossing at  the Rutland' ditch which is  very steep  several   more ___^_  grades on the south side o  the creek which should be re- j  moved as far as possible.  6.   We would also recommend  that   the   road between tbe  Mission road and the K.L.0.  bridge should be graded.  There was no   discussion   on  the report,  but jt was resolved  to draw the attention of   Road  Superintendent Lang to its contents.  The president, Mr. W. G. Beu-  son stated that it had been  pointed out to him that it  might be a good thing for thc  board to adopt some means of  obtaining reliable reports during the year of crop conditions  on the prairies. Local  tions here depended in a  measure upon how things  ling the Farmers' Institutes and  their special function is the education and enlightenment of  women and girls in the economics of the home, and also to  afford women a means of making their influence felt in the  uplifting and improvements of  home conditions on the farm  and elsewhere.  As an instance of the up-to-  date work which they are doing  it might be mentioned that the  Women's Institute of Slimmer-  land have recently cot into  touch with similar organizations on the orairies and are  making arraneements to ship  peaches and other soft fruits direct. If the fruit situation  were pursued to its final-analyses, it would be found that the  women-folk have a powerful influence on the question of marketing. This was shown forcibly in Vancouver, where the  Women's Institute decided not  to purchase the earlier American fruit but to show their practical patriotism b** waiting for  Women Ha<ve''*'*sunereu   ni B4i  past from a lack of means    of  expression    of   their   practical  ideas, and it   seems as though  There are   also]the   Women's   Institutes aflord  sharp   little, at least   some   solution oi lhe  Rutland News  (From our own Oorrsapooajsnt.t  Mrs. W.

The prospect which the  scheme presented of enabling  the country districts to be supplied with electric light and  power was one of thc most satisfactory features.   a   Mr. and M���- Ashbridgc left  this morning for Toronto after  a short visit.

Comaplix Fire was  Work of Incendiary  Kelowna people as elsewhere  seem, to have fallen in good-  naturedly enough with thc use  of the new war tax stamps,  though possibly some heavy users of postal facilities are beginning to realize that thc war  certainly must be costing a lot  of money.  It seems rather a pity that  while about It the war stamps  were not made more distinctive  by the adoption�� of a different  color or design from ordinary  postage stamps. The object obviously aimed at of keeping the  revenue from postage and war  tax separate by using war  stamps is largely defeated no  doubt by the ease with which  they are confused leading to  wholesale mistakes. That such  mistakes are likely lias been  recognized by the post office department, one concession after  another having been made re  garding the use of war stamps.  In the first announcements it  ���was definitely laid down that  payment of war tax and postage stamps for payment of post  age, and the two kinds could  not be interchanged. All letters  not so stamped would go to the  dead letter office. The dead letter office must have become suddenly a very lively olace, and  the rush of business there made  some other action necessary. Instructions were therefore issued  that war tax could be paid in  ordinary pastage stamps if no  proper war stamps were at  hand, but that on no account  was postage to be paid in war  stamps. Finally it seems that  this latter restriction, on account of which much mail seems  to have been held un is to be removed, judging by a notice in  the "Province" that the postal  authorities at Vancouver . had  been wired as follows: "It has  been decided that postage  stamps on which the words  'war tax' has been printed may  be accepted for prepayment of  postage. Amend instructions  and procedure accordingly." No  advice seems to have been received locally regarding this  fresh concession, but no doubt  that will trickle through in.  time.  The net result of this is that  war stamps and postage staiun  are perfectly interchangeable,  and that no real difference exists. Under the circumstances  it seems as though the postal  authorities might save themselves and the public trouble  and worry by stopping their issue and reverting to ordinary  stamps for all purposes. Or if  this is not possible for reasons  of accounting then thev should  issue distinctive war stamps,  and insist upon their proper use.  had lain there since before the  city was incorporated! And wc  can believe it. Rakes and  shovels were busy from early  morning, and towards afternoon  a heavy pall of smoke from the  back yard sacrifices began to  hang over the city. The job  was well done without a doubt.  There is some confusion however, existing as to the city's  part of the arrangement. We  were responsible the previous  week for getting together a  somewhat d ilatory health committee to discuss the hauling  away of the garbage following  the clean-up day, in order that  a statement-might be published  for the guidance of the public.  At this meeting it was definitely decided by three of the aldermen that the city should haul  the rubbish free of charge, and  accordingly this is what the pub  lie were told. Later however,  some of the council began to  fear that this might prove a  large and expensive undertak  ing, and although teams were  actually started hauling free  thev were called off again, and  numerous enquiries at the city  office could only elicit the information that the city were  not hauling free, but that the  householders must pay to have  the rubbish removed. Naturally  there was considerable indignation at this, and remarks were  passed which possibly made the  ears of the council burn, and  particularly those of the health  committee.  As a consequence of this muddle a good deal of the garbage  is still lyimr in heaps awaiting  removal, and it is up to thc  council to make some definite  statement.  That the fire which destroyed  half a million dollars wortli of  property at Comaplix on the  night of Sundav. April i, was  of incendiary prigin and that  the effort to secure the destruction was of a most thorough  and deliberate character was established bv an investigation  conducted bv R. Gordon, acting  as deputy to the superintendent  of insurance.  The evidence established the  fact that the flume which carried the water for the fire protection of the lumber yard had  previous to the fire been cut at  the top and both sides and a  nlank had been placed across  the mouth of the flume. When  the fire was discovered no water  Could be procured.  The fire started simultaneously in three or four places at  widely separated narts of the  vard. No strangers were in  Comaplix on the da-' of the fire.

W. P. Ross, minister of lands for British Columbia, who durihg the past three  years has organized a business  administration and protection  of the forests of the province is  now undertaking the systematic  development of wider markets  for British Columbia forest products. The importance of this  work to the province cannot be  over_ estimated The annual value of tne forest products of B.  C. in 1913 was nearly $34,000,-  000. The forests of the province are so extensive as to support in perpetuity five times as  great an industry, or one worth  8170,000,000. This sum of mon  cv, practically all of which  would be distributed in the province for labor, supplies and for  transportation would ensure  continued prosperity to all  classes, benefitting the farmer  with the tradesman and mechanic. The markets of British  Columbia lumber and other forest products must be found outside British Columbia. Mr.  Ross has therefare, been active in securing the appointment of the chief forester of the  province as a special commissioner of the Dominion government to investigate the possibility of shipping Canadian lumber to all the important foreign  lumber markets of the world.  He will visit in particular the  United Kingdom, France, Italy,  South Africa, Australia, New  Zealand, India, China and Japan. The information gained  from this investigation will  form the basis of the steps to  be taken by Mr. Ross in making it easier for British Soluin-  bia manufacturers to export to  foreign markets.

His time for  the course was 78 hours, 44  minutes and 37 seconds, 4 hours  30 minutes and 17 seconds lower  than the record established by  John Johnson's Siberian wolves  1910.  Thousands of spectators were  present ,to cheer Sepala as he  drove his limping Siberians to  the finish in their quaint looking moccasins, fitted to their  feet to protect them from the  rough snow trail.  A. A. (Scotty) Allan caiue in  second, 1 hour,-42 minutes and  18 seconds behind Sepala. He  was in good condition but his  malamutes had not stood the  race as well as the *~:!��.-rj.<ws.  Three of his dogs were riding on  the sled, one having been carried  175 miles, and the oilier two  had given out when 65 miles  from the finishing line. Allan  declared he lost the race when  his dogs got on the wrong trail  during the snowstorm, on Friday night.  The Siberians .finished in good  condition, except for tender feet  with every dog in harness, winning for Sepala the high honor  of being the foremost doe mush-  er in the northwest, as well as  a handsome purse of $3000.  up  Old Country Football  Following are the results of  thc main events in old country  football last week:  First division.��� Aston Villa,  nil, Oldham Athletic nil; Bradford City 1, Sheffield nil; Burnley 2, Sunderland 1; Chelsea 4,  .West Bromwich Albion 1; Liver-,  pool 2, Bradford 1; Manchester  City nil; Everton I; Middles-  borough nil, Bolton Wanderers,  nil; Sheffield United 3, Manchester United 1.  Second division. ��� Nottingham Forest nil, Clapton Orient  The baseball game on Thursday afternoon last between .the  High School team from the local Schools League and the pick  up team of local bovs resulted  in a very interesting contest  which was won ' .tie latter by  a score of 7 to 4.  The game was played at the  park, and although the grounds  are in very poor condition the  play was comparatively clean  and at times bordered on the  spectacular and the largest part  of theiruns scored by both sides  was not due either to heavy hitting, nor to bad fielding, but  rather to the roughness of the  field, making it impossible for  the players to judge with any  degree of accuracy any ball hit  along the* ground.  The battery for the pick-ups  was Bert Treadgold and Norman DeHart, and to this pair  belongs the lion's share of credit  for the victory, although at  times brilliant fielding helped  tnem considerably.  The real feature of the game  however, came in the fifth inning when Rennick took a long  fly with one hand while going  back at top speed (about 100  yds, per annum) cutting off at  least two runs.  Sutherland pitched for the  High School but was a trifle  unsteady at first, however after  settling down he pitched good  ball.  Another game between   these  two teams is being played this  afternoon at the park at 4 p.m.  o������   The, local Junior lacross team  organized a short time ago are  now turning out to practice at  the park on Mondav. Wednesday  and Friday evenings and according to. reports a strong combination will be whipped to.  gether to give battle to other  teams in the valley.  Schools League Games  RUTLAND WINS FROM HIGH  SCHOOL  1; Preston North End 3. Arsenal nil.  Southern League.��� Millwall  Athletic 2, Swindon town 1;  South End United 1, Queen's  Park Rangers I; Crvstal Palace  2, West Ham United 1.  In the Schools League fixture  at the local park on Saturday  afternoon the Rutland team  gave the High School team tne  first defeat this season by the  score of 14���13.  Although the score does not  indicate that the game was of  a high class, it was nevertheless  a most interesting game and  had many bright soots, and the  big score in principally due to  the rough grounds, for it , is  impossible to field a ball hit  along the ground accurately, and  nearly every ball hit^ on the  ground resulted in safeties, thus  it is easy to score when the ball  cannot be handled.  Pearee pitched for Rutland  and did well except for a couple  innings when the locals bunched  their hits and all but succeeded  in overcoming'the lead held by  the visitors.  Curts worked on the mound  for the High school and although he pitched well he could  not stop the heavy hitting of  the Rutlanders.  Local Baseball  Will be Organized  PUBLIC SCHOOL LOSE   AT  ELLISON  The Public School team suffered defeat at Ellison on Saturday afternoon by the score of  11 to 6. The boys drove out  declare although thev were defeated it was a real pleasure to  play on the Rutland "rounds as  they have been put in first class  shape and it is a pleasure to  be able to depend on a ball  bouncing true and not being  afraid of getting killed or  wounded.  The game was much faster  than those played in the city  on account of the field and the  errors are conspicuously absent  from all games played on the  country grounds.  The Public School team were  granted the privilege of reinforcements and Ewen McLennan  went to the slab" but his efforts  were futile in stopping tne Ellison batters in their search for  fat   batting   averages   and the  Arrangements are being made  for baseball games in the near  future between a local teatn and  teams from Peachland, Summer  land and Penticton.  The towns down the lake have  selected teams from among the  local talent and are willing to  stack up against a like aggregation from Kelowna so all who  are interested in the game will  do well to get out and,get into  condition as soon as possible so  that as strong a team as possible mav be selected to represent  Kelowna this season. It is believed that Kelowna can muster  a pretty good team, at present  the oldv difficulty appears to be  a catcher and no doubt some  of thc boys in the schools league  will be called upon.

WEIGHED IN.THE BAtANCE  ���   AND1' F6utfl> WANTING  - Some time ago a man went  into a store in Brantford to buy  a saw. He saw the Kind he  wanted and* asked the price.' It  was $1.65, the dealer said.  "Good gracious" said the  man, "I can get that same saw  from the mail-order house for  fi.3*i  "That's less than it cost me,"  said the dealer, "but I'll sell it  on the same terms as the mailorder house, just the same.''  "All right," said the -ustom-  er. "You can send it along and  charge it"to my account.'  ' "Not on your life," tive dealer replied. "No charge accounts  You can't do business with thc  mail-order' house that way.  Fork, over the cash," The customer complied.)  "Now, two cents postage atid  five cents for a money order, to  the mail order house, you know.  The customer, inwardly raving, kept.to his agreement and  paid the seven cents.  "Now twenty-five cents ex-  pressage."  "Well, I'll be ������," he said,  but he paid it saying: "JVow,  hand me that saw and I'll take  take it home myself and be rid  of this foolery,".  "Hand it to vou? ��� Where do  vou think you are? You are iu  Brantford and I'm in Toronto  and you'll have to wait ,1 week  for that saw."  Whereupon the dealer hung the  saw on a peg and put.the mouov  in his cash drawer.  "That makes fi.67," he said.  "It has cost you two cents more  and taken you a week longer to  get it than if you had paid my  price in the first place."   J3   Insects' Board Bills  The horticultural dep&rtnlent  of   the    University of Missouri  has been cooperating for a couple of years with the orchardists  in fourteen counties.   They have  discovered how extravagant the  insect   board   bill can be whtn  the orchardist allows them    to  feed   at his   expense.   For   instance, the average fruit    value  of   unspra*'ed   trees  was   only  S18.05   per acre.     The average  fruit value for sprayed trees was  S187.19 per acre.  I    What   became of   the $143.07  I per acre   in the first   instance?  I Why, the orchard insects put it  I down into their little stomachs,  I and kept the fruit p-rower   from  I putting it down in his    jeans.  There   was one   orchard which  I gave a net profit in i<m of $161  1.12 due to proper spraying.  j    They found that it cost     6.6  1 cents to.sprav the first time; J3  I cents for   the second spraying;  q.5 cents for the third, and     8  cents for the fourth; total 37.1  cents a tree, or about S22.26 an  acre.   If,   at a cost of  $22   an  acre, vou can catch the thieves  that are taking over $160 worth  of vour fruit, isn't it -ood business sense to tackle this cost of  high living in the right way? If  the state taxed vou that    high  vou would raise a row.���Success  ful Farming.  Ordinary Stamps May be  Used for War Tax  ASTROIvOGICALLY SPEAKING  Dr. J. W. Nelson Shepherd  DENTIST  P. 0.

Year', by year the poultrv  branch of farm work is becoming more valuable to the futin-  ers of the country and this, too  frequently, in the face of -indifference which is not displayed  in other departments oi farm  work.  It is important that poultrv  raisers, having secured the proper type of chickens see thev  should be carefully fed and cared for from the time of hatching  until they reach saleable .we  which will be much sooner than  if they are allowed to get their  own living.

EDWARDS  expenses were far in excess al  the receipts, and things were go-  ing Irom bad to worse.  Mayor Jones said that at  present nearly every hospital in  the province was going behind,  but it would be a great (Jisaster  if it had to be closed as there  might be a serious case wilh no  hospital open to receive it.  A suggestion was made that  the water and light accounts for  the hospital be deferred for the  present, and charged against a  future grant if such were made.  This, it was stated was the  greatest amount of assistance  whieh could be given at the  present time.  iAtters regarding assistan.  from the Canadian Patriotic  Fund for certain local residents  from the branch secretary at  Vernon, and also from the pro-  vinciat secretary, brought up a  discussion on the whole question oi relief work in the city,  it was decided to make enquiries as to the advisability ol  starting a branch of the 1'atrio-  .c fund in Kelowna.  Chief of Police Thomas submitted his report ior the month  of March. There had been only  lour mmor cases, >7 only being  callcclcd in lines.  "The regulation of vehicular  trallic," said the report, "still  presents a problem ior future  solution. Complaints are continually received about drivers  being ou the wrong side of the  road, or not turning corners in  a proper manner, thereby endangering cue lives of pedestrians and occupants of other vehicles. Most of the trouble ap  pears to be at the comer of 1'eu-  dozi street and Bernard avenue.  "Some years ago I understand that ellort was made���  but without success���to secure  refuges for convenience of toot  passengers and for the bettei  regulation of trallic. They  would, however, appear not to  be in favor with the local driving public, anu, generally speaking, are unfortunately looked  upon by them simply as unnecessary street obstructions, then-  real value from the police point  ol view being under estimated,  in contrast to local opinion, it  is interesting to note the remarks of Sir Geo. Toulmins in  the Select Committee's report  on lyondon trallic in relation to  "lieJuges," published in the  l<ondon Times of August 15th,  iyi3, as follows:  'They are impressed by the  value of the refuge in keeping  traliic in line, and, in view of  the general speeding up of vehicles, they do not think the  slight delay of being unable to  pass a slow vehicle with the  same facility as if the road were  quite open, should be allowed to  weigh against the safety and  convenience ol nedestrians, a refuge may be looked upon as a  permanent automatic trallic  point performing the duty of a  policeman.'  ���'These remarks may be said  to apply equally to refuges for  Kelowna. At present the most  dangerous corner in the city is  that of Bernard avenue and Pendozi street. A refuge consisting  of a concrete base with a lamp  post and an ornamented -luster of lights would not be very  expensive, and, apart from its  usefulness as a,trallic regulator,  would, in my opinion add greatly to the appearance of this portion of the city."  A large number of tenders for  the 'work of sprinkling thc  streets for the season w.re opened up, ranging from 45 cents an  hoUr to 56.oo per dav.  The tenders were as follows:  Board of Works.  In discussing the amended  Trade Licence -Bylaw which is  it present beiore the council,  Alderman Sutherland asked  what the council thought, of reducing the hotel licences in view  [ present conditions. Their re-  eipts had now dwindled down  to prgctically nothing and they  were being run at a loss. He  pointed out that the Kelowna  licence was much higher than  surrounding places, Vernon's for  instance being S300 per annum  ompared with Kelowna JJ600.  Consideration of thc point,  however, was left to a [umfe  meeting as also was an enrmiry  as to whether the packin- houses being wholesale concerns were  not liable for Sioo instead of  $10.  Alderman Duggan mentioned  that Mr. Fuller had a number  of soft maple trees which be  would sell to the city, allowing  the proceeds to r-o against tax  es. He wished to know if this  would be agreeable to the council. It was decided however to  leave it wilh the Parks committee.  Mention was made of the ne>;d  of watering the shade trees on  the streets. Alderman Ratten  bury said that manv people  were looking after the trees op  posite their lots, and hethought  it would be a good idea if the  citizens generally would follow  this course.
