It was decided to allow the company to place their weigh scales on
the street with certain restrictions,

There were two other offers before the Council, one from G. A.

purchase the $49,000 debentures
at 103-and accrued interest, and
another from W. C. Brent, Toronto,
offering $52,059 for the same debentures.    I
The council were unanimous in
accepting the offer of the Dominion
Securities Corporation: '
F. Samson waited on the council
on behalf of the volunteer fire
brigade, submitting the list of
officers and members of the brigade

H. H. Millie waited on the council, asking for free lighting in return

that it was irregular^and Jn future

A farewell social, given in honor
of Rev.'H. P. Thorpe last Friday
at the Baptist- Church was very
largely attended by representatives
of all denominations in the city,
and many expressions of genuine
regret were voiced.
A short programme opened the
evenings' ceremonies^ Mr."A. E.
Boyer heading the list with'a solo.
Rev. A. W. K. Herdman then took
the platform, and in a short speech
expressed his deep regret at having
to say farewell to Mr. Thorpe, tho'
he was glad to be there to sympathise with him. "There are, two
occasions" continued Mr. Herd-
man, "when a minister is very
much appreciated by the people.
One is when he first comes, and
the other when he leaves." The
reverend gentleman; pointed5 out
that the spirit of the west is restless, and continual change.,The
days when a pastor would live and
grow old with the same congregation! have now passed away.
Mr. Herdman caused considerable amusement by stating that'today the public did not want, old
men in the professions/tho' he was
not insinuating that Mr. Thorpe
was an old man. There \yas an
impression abroad that when a man
got on in years, he should .be
treated as an old horse.1 "Take
him out and shoot him, or chloroform him." In speaking of Mrs.'
Thorpe, he spoke ofthe esteem in
which she was held generally, and
how much she would be missed in
Church work.      ^ ■ ~ •-•?  -"-
"In conclusion," said Mr. Herd-
man, "I want to say that my relations with Mr. Thorpe have been
very happy. He has helped me
considerably, and being of an
optimistic turn was a good companion. I am very. sorry -for his
removal and I hope that Mr.
Thorpe-will find his new sphere of
work at Salmon Arm very happy."
Miss Fr Messenger then followed
with a humorous reading which
was well received', followed by an
excellent1 solo by Mr.T. Hill, whose
fine bass voice was heard to"advantage.
After another recitation by Mrs.
Varney; Rev. Mr.Wright, pastor
of the Methodist Church followed
along the lines of Mr. Herdman in
expressing his sorrow in losing a
staunch helper in the cause of
social and moral reform.    (
The three  denominations, Pres-
bvterian,_Methodist and-= Baptist,
had been drawn very close together since the Union Prayer Meetings
had started, and the, removal of
one of their principarworkers was
a matter of extreme regret. He
endorsed Mr. Herdman _• words
that the spirit of the west was continual move and change, and
pastors and people had to move
and change with the times.     ''     '
Referring to himself, Mr. Wright
stated he was glad to be there, as
if all reports were true, he .would
shortly be at his own funeral and
he" would like 'to know what it
would feel like to die. "The time
will come" said^Mr..Wright, "when
a ministerlwiir.npt.be 'taken to task
every-other day for neglecting his
work." He wanted to be left to do
his work himself and account for
his .tewardship afterwards.   •' •
In-'his 'closing 'remarks''Mr.
Wright voiced the sentiments of
hia 'hearers, in. remarking that, Mr.
Thorpe was a. man every inch,' a
fearless worker in the causes he
upheld; and whose jremoval would
be felt by all.
t ,A very, pleasing event then took
place when Mr. Reekie with an
appropriate speech presented Mr,
Th'orpe with a chair from his many
friends as a token of regard and
appreciation of his earnest endeavors, and1 also'a' silver berry
8po6n,"for; Mr.,7Thorpe who.r.has
been an active x worker in church
affairs. ' "■
* Mr. Thorpe then rose to reply,
and was obviously' much moved
by the many sincere expressions of

Fruit Farming in
Optimistic Speech by Martin
BurrelLM. P. Before Can-
Committee Appointed; to Arrange Finances- and to
- Petition Council for Lease of Site for Club House!
Mr. Martin Burrell, M. P. for Yale-Cariboo, gave a very interesting speech at a
luncheon to .. which he t was- invited by
members of the Canadian Club' at Ottawa.
The members heard''much of what was
news to them regardirfg the fruit-growing
possibilities, of British Columbia, and
evinced great interest.
Mr. Burrell, after expressing appreciation
of the honor done him in inviting  him  to
address the club, went on to speak of  the
importance to all Canada of  the   development of British Columbia.     He  said   that
there were four great industries in  British
Columbia, mining,  lumbering,, agriculture
with horticulture associated, and  fisheries.
His own subject was Horticulture in British
Columbia, a subject in  which  he  had  a
deep interest, both from a commercial and
sentimental  point  of ,view.     He   quoted
Professor Robertson's statement  that life
was at its best where children, had  orchards to play in and went on  to  show  the
refining  influence  upon   society  of  fruit
growing.   He ran quickly over the history
of fruit growing in British Columbia, from
the planting of the first  tree  in   1849 by
Mr. James  Douglas,  chief factor rof the
Hudson   Bay. company- - and ' afterwards
governor of the crown colony,   up  to  the
present   tremendous , development   with
75,000 acres in orchard, a.great deal of; it
under irrigation.    The  first shipment  to
outside markets was  made  in   1897.   In j
1902, the province produced 2,000 tons of
fruit, in 1904, 3,000 tons! valued  at $250,-
000, and in 1908. over '$i;000,000,  which
fruit' was   marketed  not  merely in  the
Northwest and Great Britain but in far off
Australia.   Mr. Burrell said  that the  de.
velopment of the fruit industry  in  British
Columbia was only at  its  beginning,  because, aside from the fact that there was
much ground still to- be -'planted -only   10
per cent of the area thus  far planted  are
now in bearing. -~The  speaker -explained
briefly the general features of the  climate
of British Columbia, showing "that,  while
the function of the coast range,'and, further inland, the Selkirks,  was  to  produce
areas of heavy precipitation through drawing the moisture from  the  clowds driven
in from the  Pacific,  there was,  between
these ranges, a great valley?country which
might bexalled semi-arid, and for the best
utilization of which irrigation  was  necessary.     He  showed  that  experience  had
proven that, fruit could  be grown  much
higher up on the mountain slopes than had
at first been supposed.   His own town  of
Grand Forks was   1,700 feet above sea
level and~was—the-centre-of-sT^splendid
fruit raising district.     He  explained  how
the'.progress "of the art of horticulture
made it possible to produce excellent results with far less water supply than was
at first deemed necessary, so that, with a
given   expenditure \'on   irrigation   works,
fruit cultivation might be  extended  over
an immense area.
;As to _e'character of the fruit grown
in the Okanagan Valley and ' elsewhere in
British Columbia, he said that it was
rather the habit of some people in the East
a* -'well- aa in' Britain, to say that, while
British Columbia fruit had a pleasing appearance and while the orchard yielded
abundantly, the fruit lacked quality. This
he spoke of aa a pleasing fiction, A Britisher, he said, thought that an apple was
no good unless it was so hard that when
he bit it it!brought the tears to his eyes—
anything less durable he called "mellow"
or,1'soft." 'But' he went on to tell of a discussion with professional market gardeners
in Britain over a' certain Grimes Golden
and Kings, exhibited in Britain, when the
leading man amongst them was compelled
to admit that it would not be easy to find
a much better'apple in either quality or
looks7 HeVent on to tell of the prizes
won by British Columbia fruit in competition with the yery best that could be pro-
du'cedlblfewhere. At the great show of
the Pacific .Coast''Fruit Growers'Association at which the best growers of Oregon
and Washington, were represented, British
Columbia took the hundred dollar gold
m.edaljfof^the.best five cases.,,And at the
first great national apple show, held at
Spokane last year, which~was attended by
buyers not only from all over the United
States' J>in? ■from 'Europe aa well, one

The question of the foimation of
an Aquatic Association was discussed at a meeting in Raymer's
Hall on Friday evening last. There
was an attendance of'about'50 or
60 representing the chief' sporting
element of the city. MrW/- Crawford who is one of. the, principal
movers in the matter, was 'elected
to the chair. In a ,breef speech he
explained that'it had been1 felt for
some time past that'a' cliib of-this
kind had become a necessity, to
the city. The advisability. of its
formation had been the subject of
a good deal of private discussion,
and it had been finally'decided to
call the present meeting for < the
purpose of debating, the., question
and if possible, taking definite steps
towards the organization of such, a
club. A rough scheme had been
formulated which would be' presented for the'consideration of the
meeting.     -.. -   ,
The suggestion was that the club
be incorporated-as a stock- company with a capital of $3,000 which
could be divided into 120 shares
of $25 each. This would provide
sufficient funds for the building of
a club house on the lake front, the
City Council to be approached
with a view to granting' the 'lease
of land in the new park ' property
for that purpose. -The members'
subscriptions it was thought might
be fixed at $5uper. annum' arid'"the
first"*! 20, membefs-the original stock
holders—could be allowed < a rebate of half the subscription each
year,"as'a sort'of dividend 'on the
money they, had invested. ' It .was
not intended however that the club
should be a money-making scheme,
but should be organized purely for
sporting purposes. ,
Mr. Crowley was of the opinion
that $3,000 would, be too small for
the purpose. ,He thought $10,000,
would be hearer the mark.
It was the unanimous view of
all the speakers that the club was
a desirable feature for the city, and
that once it had been'placed upon
a sound footing there could be no
doubt as to ' its. future success.
Competitions could be arranged
which would bring' in 'outsiders
from all over the Valley and perhaps even more distant parts of
the province. 'n'Kelowna' it was
said was in a specially favourable
situation for events of' this kind,
being centrally situated on the lake
and_h&ving-& stretch-cf-besch and
bathing facilities second to none.
There was however no proper
provision made at the present time
for bathing. There was a pressing
need for some' kind of pavilion
which could be used as a dressing
The services1 of an "expert swimmer 'could be 'obtained as care
taker, and the co-operationr of the
school authorities might be obtained to enable school children to
have proper' and regular instructions in swimming. It was felt that
the club should not be restricted
to boating as' had beerfHirst suggested, but that its scope should
be widened to. include all kinds'of
aquatic sports.   \' ,   J
Mr. Bailey, created some amusement .with the remark that the. was
no aquatic ' He generally found
when he took' to) the,water he had
a tendency to go to the bottom.' He
said the capital suggested was- not
nearly , enough for the expenses
which' would 'have to' be faced.
Nothing-was too good for Kelowna
and he thought'that if a club was
started at all it should be'on a scale
that wa.'worthy'of a growing', city
like this." The regatta'" could be
made one of the events.of,the year
and attract visitors from all parts
ofthe lake., f 7' / ''' >/ '

The ready sale of the Kelowna debentures would seem
to indicate that the hard times
in the financial world are fast
disappearing, and that the
money market is loosening up.
The advantage of having a representative of the Eastern
houses on the spot, to observe
the conditions and backing of
the city, is evidenced by the
good figure quoted, being about
five, and'eight points over the
offers received by wire from the
other houses, who having no
one here to examine into-the
City's financial standing, quoted
a lower price. They are all 6
per cent. 20 year debentures,
and are selling at 111, or 98£
figuring them at 5 per cent., on
which basis quotations are
generally given. Although undoubtedly a good figure, this is
not so high as the, City's first
issue of 5 per cents, three years
ago, which sold at 102, but considering the times, we have
good reason to be very well
Excursions are periodically
run to Kelowna from the
prairies during summer, and
the excursionists are met at
Sicamous by every Tom, Dick
and Harry along the line, loaded with literature, and followed
down to the Landing, with invitations to come and see "our
section." A Vernon man even
going so far as to suddenly
have "business" in Kelowna
during the past week. There
can only be one result of this
indiscriminate bullying, for it is
nothing else, and that is that
the visitors become bewildered and to some extent his faith
is shaken, he is undecided
which way to turn, and often
postpones his choice until he
finds himself back on his cheerless prairie, when the work of
inducing him to come again is
all to do over.
The current number of the
Summerland Review contains
the announcement that Mr. J.
F. Watkins, editor and managing director, has sold his interest in the company to Mr.
Thomas Collinge. Mr. Wat-
kin's ill-health has compelled
him to take this step, and he is
returning at once to Vancouver
where he will undergo a dangerous operation. We extend
our hearty sympathy to Mr.
Watkins in his trouble and
hope that the operation may
be successfully performed and
that he may.soon be restored to
health and strength.
The testing of the city plant
at the power house took place
on Wednesday morning, in the
presence of Mayor DeHart and
most of the aldermen. There
were also a number of business
men present. The tests were
conducted by E. W. Hall, who
had charge of the pole line
construction "for the Hinton
Electrical Company, that company being represented by A.
C. Routh, their Vancouver
manager, and S. B. Smith who
installed the plant for the Canadian Fairbanks Co., was.on
the spot in the interests of his
The proceeding were a little
mystifying to the uninitiated,
who however, looked wise and
noaaecrsagery as tne engineers-
talked about rheostats, amperes,
alternating currents and other
technicalities in connection
with their profession, but as
the report to the Council shows,
results are very satisfactory.
To Help Unemployed.
According to Mr. Ramsey Macdonald,
secretary of the Labour Party, the Government, as a consequence of enquiries made
in Germany, have under consideration four
or five schemes for dealing with unemployment.
The one which Mr. Macdonald views
most favorably is based on the German
system of contributory assurance, the principle being that very skilled workman shall
have 4d. a week credited to 'him in some
insurance company. The workman will
pay one penny per week of that fourpence,
the employer another penny, and the State
the remaining twopence. The purpose of
that is'that every workman who is out of
work may go to this fund and draw a certain amount every week in the form of insurance.
This, says Mr. Macdonald, is the very
principle which the Labour Party contend-
ed for. It was evident that by making
very slight changes in the Labour Party's
Right to Work Bill the Government was
apparently making up its mind to adopt'it.
Mr. A. Pears Dead.
Mr. Andrew Pears has recently passed
away at Brentford in his Sixty-fourth year.
Mr. Pears was the great grandson of the
founder of Pears Soap Works, of world
-wide fame, and he also discovered a way to
make transparent soap, upon which the
family fortunes were built.
The advertisements of Pears, have been
before the public for years, and are well

Depopulation of London.

the centre of London to districtf farther

Cardiff Hunger^ Marchers Go.
The hunger marchers, who have for
some time past been living camped, on

The hunger marchers had started draining the land, and'eutting it up into claims,

Way-the Liquor  Mam Got
With the Bank Teller.
Many years ago there lived In Rutland, Vt, two men who bore the same
name, which name we will call' W. O
Jones. One of these^men was a dapper young bank teller; the other was
engaged in running a cigar store wltb.
a~ saloon attachment in the rear. This
was in the days of prohibition" In Vermont. Every three or four weeks the
latter Jones would be haled Into thej
police court and _ned for liquor selling, which was chronicled regularly in
the dally papers. The bank teller grew
nervous about it, and one morning this
announcement appeared: "W. O. Jones,
(lie popular young bank teller of the
Rutland National bank, wishes it to be
understood that be Is in no way connected with the saloon keeper and
hopes their names may sot be confounded."
Now, it transpired that a few months
afterward this young teller failed to
appear one morning at bis accustomed
window at the bank, .fpona hasty
examination it was found that $15,000
or" more of the funds of the bank had
also disappeared. The wires were
called into requisition Immediately,
and after a few days he was located
in Denver. It was the old story He
was brought'back, incarcerated, tried,
etc.     , . ~-
It was now tbe saloon keeper's turn,
and this notice was duly published In
the same paper that issued the previous one: "W. O.- Jones,_the widely
known business man of, Merchants'
row, wishes it to be understood that he
Is in no way connected with W.O.
Jones, the defaulting bank teller now
in jail, and hopes their names may not
be confounded "- Exchange.

It Originated' In Spain at the Court of
Philip IV.
The'German emperor, William II., Is
generally regarded as the Inventor of"
the turned up mustache. This is true
only as far as introducing It as a, fashion. It, was invented- at the court "of
Philip IV. about 1625.7 That monarch
was the first to wear" his mustache
turned upward. From the' Spanish
court the fashion spread over all Europe. , Charles I.--of England, Philip's
brother-in-law, and many' members of
tbe Austrian Flapsburgs adopted it" It
came to Belgium and was Introduced
into"Germany by the Spanish soldiers
during the Thirty Years' war.'
-It was also found in Sweden as well
as in France under Louis XIII.- Under
Louis XIV the beard went out of fash-
Ion, and during the time of Rococo tbe
elegant world knew only clean'shaven
faces until the French revolution
brought the .mustache again into use.
But nowhere except in its Spanish
houie did the mustache rise so extravagantly as wltb the German emperor
and bis Imitators.
1 In Spain all kinds of artificial means,
such as bandages and coverings, were
employed to compel the mustache to
keep this unnatural upward position,
and in looking at the paintings of Ve-.
lasquez or Murillo one can easily understand -that without such coercive
measures a true full blooded Spaniard,
could < never have realized his ideal

The Tarantula.
Wh-ttic! tlio tnr_ntula is ever a
death denier or not is a disputed point.
However, there seems to be no doubt
thni the bite of this spider-like creature inHletfl one of the most painful
wounds thnt the human body can endure Stolid Indians who have borne
tbe tortures of the sun dance without
-inching have been known to roll upon
the ground aud shriek In agony when
bitten by n tarantula, which leaves a
livid senr that never grows dim. It Is
possible that the tarantula bite sometimes proves fatal, although It is difficult to _nd a well authenticated instance of this kind.
Gone To B. C.
Even Buds Grow Old.
According to a government botanist
at Washington.' there Is reason to believe that, buds share in the growing
old of the pnrent plant He illustrates
his meaning in this way: Suppose the
average life of an individual plant-
say n tree—.to be 100 years; then a bud
removed when the parent plant is fifty
years old will also be virtually fifty
years of j age and if transplanted by
grafting 'will be able to live on the
graft only fifty years more.
On Saturday night, the Masonic brethren
banquetted-Dr.—Baker-at^the Waldorf
Hotel, prior to his departure for Kelowna
B. C. The guests of the evening included
the Town Council (of which the doctor
is an ex-member) the town officials, and
the pastor of the Methodist Church. Twenty-five partook of the hospitality of Mine
Host'Archer, after which the usual toasts
were proposed and heartily responded to
by members of The Craft and their guests.
On behalf of the brethren, Wor. Bro.
Lowry, Secretary, read an address, the
presentation being made by Bro. Sam.
In the removal of the Dr. and his estimable wife and family the town loses a
a public spirited citizen who always aimed
to do his best to advance its interests. If
only one half of the good wishes which
follow the doctor to his new home are realized, he will prosper abundantly, and he
may rest assured, we of Leduc will always
welcome him back.

Canadian Curlers Returning. ,
On Friday last the Canadian team of
curlers, who have been visiting the Old
Country under the captaincy of Lieutenant
Governor Fraser, embarked on board the
Empress of Ireland, homeward bound.
The captain of the team said they had
been treated with the greatest possible
kindness during the whole of their stay in
Great Britain, and he hoped that a return
visit of their Scottish opponents could be
arranged so that they might in some measure
repay the unbounded hospitality they had
received.    -

Prohibition a Success in United
7   7 " 'States.",       7
The end of 1908 brings some interesting
statistical information concerning the re- Kj
suits of prohibition in some municipalities |]
and states of the American Union, (1
which last year were under' prohibition a
for the first time;     ; a
The town of Bristol, Va., reports that for o
the last twelve months of license, November, 1906, to October, 1907, the total number of police cases dealt with was 1,388,
of which 93 were for drunkenness, while
for the year beginning November, 1907,
and ending October, 1908, under no licence, the total cases were only 656, and £
the indictments for drunkenness were only
2-10.- _      ' 	
Knox count}', including the city of Knox-
ville, in Tennessee, records 397 commitments to jail for the single month of November under prohibition, whereas it had r!
720 such commitments for the same month
of7the_year_JW7>_^Ven_jh_e_bj|r^r_ooma  jl
were running. \k
The city of Jackson, Tennessee,   reports  j|
146 arrests from  April   1st  lo   December  ft
17th, 1908, and recalls 520  arrests  for the
same period in 1907.
The city of Brunswick, Ga„ went under
prohibition on January 1st, 1908 nnd during
the nine following months had only 57
police cases, as against 308 for the same
nine months ihe preceding year when the ||
saloons were running.
If the lowering of the criminal record is
evidence.of the success of prohibition, it
must be admitted that prohibition is a
complete success throughout Georgia.
'- Taking the first nine months of the year
1908 under prohibition arid comparing
them with the similar nine months of 1907,
when the saloons were doing their work,
there is obtained the following statement
of the total number of arrests by the city
Total     Drunk-
Arrests   enness
Under license:..". 15086      4352
Under Prohibition  8990       1598
Decrease     under     prohibition  6096      2754'
While crime was falling off even before
the new conditions had opportunity to
pioduce their full results, the city was^
growing in prosperity, order and mortality.
The city health officer reported a falling
off of about fifty per cent, in the number
of 3Ci'ious accidents which came under his
observation. Building p'ermitu for the nine
months obovp mentioned, represented
values as follows:
Under license   .1>3,825,73li'
Under prohibition......   4,156,905
No more striking evidence could be furnished to show the value of prohibition
for any community or State,

Tragedy of the North.
News of a weird tragedy of northern
wilds was brought in from Lake Nipigon
district by national transcontinental police.
An old Indian named Zeabo quariellcd
with his best friend while on a hunting
trip, the dispute arising over the possession of furs, which Zeabo claimed were
caught on his reserve. The quarrel ended
in Zeabo killing his companion. .The
deed played on Zeabo's mind.and on his
return home he told his family that he had
killed his best friend, and asked several
acquaintances to *kill him, he believing
that only by his own death could he atone
for his sin. He could not kill himself, that
he claimed would be a double crime.
One night he came into his home and
handing his daughter a sharp axe, commanded her to kill him. At first she refused, but on being told by her father that
he would committ more murders if she
didn't, she consented. He bade an affectionate farewell to his two young sons
and. the girl, who then commanded him
to stand over by the fire with his back to
her. She weighed 160 lbs. and swinging'
the axe high in the ah" over her head
brought it down with all her strength, completely severing the head from the body.
Then she fainted right away. The police,
after investigating the circumstances, decided to leave the girl in her sorrow. ,

Double Escape From Penitentiary.
Two desperate criminals escaped from
New Westminister Penitentiary early Wednesday morning of last week, and -. are in
hiding in the bush near"Port Moody, and
are closely pursued by a large posse.
The men were serving terms of 10 years
and 2 years respectively, and one of them
made an almost successful dash for liberty
last May.
At the time the escape was made, the
convicts were being marched to breakfast,
and managed to conceal themselves from
the guards, breaking through a window
by means of a wrench stolen from the
blacksmith shop.

Police Women For Neto Jersey.
Mrs. Julia Goldzier, of Bayonne, N. J., is
endeavouring, with tho sanction of the
mayor, to raise a corps of women to act as
volunteer police to patrol the public parks
during tho summer months. Mrs. Goldzicr's
idea is to get six or seven women of independent means who will devote one afternoon per week to the work. She will usk
the park commissioners to provide the
women with badges, so that they will have
authority to make arrests. The uniform
which she suggests consi3ts of a blue blouse,
blue cap with gold braid, blue skirt, and
black leather leggings. The blouse would
have a row of brass buttons down the
front. She wishes to show the city what
policewomen really can do; and that in
many instances they are superior to men.
Automobile Race Across the
That 75 cars will enter the automobile'
race across the continent to the opening of
the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific exposition is the
annocement made to-day by Tom Moore,
who has had charge of the biggest races
in both   Americe and Europe.
Moore arrived here last night from the
east and at once held a conference with
Qobert Guggenheim and other members
of the Automobile club of America, under
whose auspices the race will be run.
It is planned to have two scout automobiles start in advance of the racers, one of
them from New York and one, from Chicago, whose duty it will be to mark the
course. Signs will be posted and the dri-
vers must register at certain points.
The date for the starting of the long
race has not yet been definitely decided

John McKenna, coachman for D. Mc-
Eachern, was killed last week in Montreal;

in coasting down the mountain-side:
His two companions escaped injury.
Ice Palace Collapses. "
The tower of the ice palace at Montreal
collapsed on Friday last flinging two labourers to the ground, who however fortunately escaped serious injury.
Scalding Accident at Notch Hill.
W. Temlinson, engineer on the C.P.R.,
was badly scalded a few days ago at Notch
Hill, by the blowing out of a plug in a
pipe carrying pressure steam. He received the full force of the explosion in his
face, and suffered great pain for many
hours after the accident. He was conveyed in a light engine to Revelstoke and
placed in the hospital. Although badly
hurt his recovery is expected.
Poisoned at a Banquet.
One hundred and twenty-six students
and eight professors of Toronto who attended a feast to the athletic champions of
the university have been suffering from
the effects of ptomaine poisoning. Principal   Hutton,   the ■ only   one  present  who
escaped says that most of them have now
recovered. No one knows what"particular
article of food was responsible for the
Clergy The Serpents of The Deoil.
Mrs. Carrie Nation, the notorious Saloon
Smasher, is not as much admired in the
old country, as she is on the American
side of the Atlantic. She returned on the
12th of this month, and on being asked
if this was not an acknowledgment of defeat, said:—"Defeat, certainly not young
man. 1 am confident mat I have not been
working in vain, even in England. At
least, if I have been defeated, it has been
by the Devil, and by his servants, the
clergy of your country.
The same amiable lady declares the
clergy to be in league with the drink
traffic, that they own brewery shares, and
do not dare become leaders of the movement against drink.
England, she declares, is fifty years be*
hind United States as regards drink. On
every street corner of London are "hell
houses," and in conclusion she says:—All
I can say is that, my imagination fails to
conceive anything worse than the present
condition of thing in London."

Lecture by   Rev. J. McDougall
on "Wild Life in Canada's
Great West."
The audience, not nearly so large
as it should have been, who attended at the Methodist Church
on Monday night to hear the lecture of the Rev. John McDougall,
D.D., the veteran missionary
amongst the Indians of the Northwest, was well rewarded. Those
who know only the great western
provinces of today, or at most, of
a few years back, must have listened with the deepest interest to the
vivid pictures of the reverend
lecturer, as he carried his hearers
back to the days before the tide of
immigration had set westwards,
back to the days when the great
plains were the rich pasturage of
the countless herds of buffalo,
"God's own cattle," the hunting
ground of the Redskin, and the
scene of their picturesque warfare.
At the time of which Dr. McDougall spoke, the early sixties,
the west was indeed "the great
unknown." In the old country,
and even in Canada, east of Lake
Superior, little was known of the
mighty fertile prairies of- the west.
Beyond the great lakes few white
men had ever ventured except
these grand old pioneer missionaries, and the officers of the ancient
and honorable, the Hudson's Bay
Company. No    railways    had
crossed these trackless plains
—were scarcely dreamed of—and
travelling in those days, with dog
trains" or on horseback or snow-
shoes, demanded hardihood and
grit, which are seldom met with in
the later days.
The lecturer held his audience
in wrapt attention for over an
hour and a half whith his intensely
interesting reminiscences of his
early missionary experiences
amongst the wild Indians of the
plains. His story of his first encounter with a bear, and his striking description of a .great buffalo"
hunt, were examples of word painting only possible to one who had
seen what he drew, and seen it
too with the eyes of one capable
of appreciating to the full the romance of it all.
What Canada owes to the handful of brave men who labored
through long years in their own
manner to prepare the way for the
inevitable westward swe«p of civilization, will perhaps never be
known, but certain it is, that to the
younger generation especially, the
story of their lives .is ever fraught
with the keenest interest.
The singing of the national anthem brought to a close an evening of profit and enjoyment.
The proceeds of the lecture are
to be devoted to Church funds. ,<

istrate Norris on Friday, of shooting
with intent to kill. Daniel Carter
the defendant,, a South African
Veteran, it is claimed because enamoured of a Miss Pritchard,
housekeeper to Mr. Thos. Ward
about 12 miles out on the White
Valley Road, and jealousy caused
by the lady's engagement to Mr.
Ward, prompted the rash act. On
the announcement of Miss Prit-
chard's engagement to Mr. Ward,
Carter was requested to discontinue
his attentions. . His remonstrances
proving unavailing, the accused
departed threatening to be revenged.
The prisoner then went to Vernon, bought a revolver and cartridges at the Vemon Hardware
Co's. store, and called for Ward's
mail which he took out with him.
On his arrival home, he went over
to Ward's; house and called for
him to come out'. Ward came
out, but having been previously
put on his guard, armed himself
with a rifle, and told Carter to get
off his premises. Words having
no effect, Ward fired over Carter's
head to frighten him, but which

body, who then took refuge in his

Carter went to Lumley, where he

there a small exhibit, won $5,500 worth, of
prizes and took also the cup for the be'st
individual apple, in color texture and quality in the whole exhibition. At the Royal
Horticultural society's exhibition in Britain
where the judges were the most critical in
the world, for six consecutive years| British
Columbia had captured, the gold medal.
One  great advantage enjoyed  by  the
fruit growers of British Columbia was the
high  percentage of No. 1 fruit produced
by the orchards.   Mr. Burrell said that in
a British  orchard not  more than  10 per
cent, of the fruit would average first class.
In  Ontario a  liberal  estimate would   be
from 30 to 50 per cent.   He believed he
was absolutely safe in saying that the percentage  in  British  Columbia   would   be
not less 'than   70,per  cent.   In  his  own
orchard, he had found "aa high as 90 per
cent grade No. 1 ^fruit.   This was due to
the absence of fungous and insect pests.
He recognized the fact that these would
probably appear with the later development of the 'business of horticulture.   But
he was sure that the people of the East
would sympathize with British Columbia
in  taking'-every  means possible to keep
these pests from entering the crop.   Fruit
growing in British Columbia, he said, had
now  reached what  might  be. called  the
real estate stage when the careful operator
would sell to guileless people for $100 an
acre' land that cost him $5. "But,' though a
multiplication of cases of this kind might
cause many, to believe that the fruit growing business'of British Columbia was hot
a sound   one, yet  they should   recognize
that there was constantly going on solid
and  honest development.   This develop,
ment being continued,- he .believed, would
make British Columbia one of the greatest
fruit producing countries in the world.
The chairman expressed, on behalf of the
club, hearty appreciation of Mr. Burrell.

Lots 1 to3« inclusive and Block 51,
Map 462, and Blocks 16 and 17.
The council, after giving the
above by-laws their first reading,
adjourned to meet Tuesday morn
Tuesday's Meeting.
At Tuesday's meeting $9,500
debentures which the city had on
hand were sold to the Dominion
Securities Corporation at 1 1 1 and
accrued interest.
A meeting of the Council was
held on Wednesday evening,
Mayor DeHart in the chair, and
Aid. Elliott, Rowcliffe, Bailey and
Ball in attendance.
The minutes of the preceeding
meeting were read and adopted,
and correspondence read.
The question was raised, whether it would not have been cheaper
to wait until the frost was out, of
ground before connecting the
Palace Hotel with the water mains.
Aid. Elliott expressed considerable
indignation that, as chairman of
the Board of Works, his sanction
had not been obtained. The work
was- done entirely without his
knowledge, and he did not know
who ..gave the instructions. No
one present appeared to have given the order, and the matter was
left in abeyance. 7
Messrs. Hall & Routh, who had
been testing the municipal plant
installed by the Canadian Fairbanks waited on the Council to
submit a preliminary report on
their tests, to the effect that:—After
running one hour full load, with
the room at 72 dg. F. the temperature of the. generator was 93 dg.
F., while the specifications allowed
for I 76 dg. F. After 2 hours run,
bearing from 25 per cent, to 50
per cent, overload, the machine
came up to 160 dg. F., while the
specification allowed for 206 dg.
F. The actual H.P. developed at
full load was 133, while the engine
was developing 142 H. P. On the
overload the electrical output was
165 H.P., while the engine developed 174 H. P. Regarding the pump, this plant was
guaranteed for 750 "gallons per
minute, and running at 100 lbs.
steam, and 100 lbs. water pressure
gave   approximately   892  gallons
with 3 nozzles, while operating at 70 revolutions. At 90 revolutions per minute,
the same nozzles deliver 1100 galls. At
that speed (90 revolutions) it was running
47.2 over its rated capacity.
Mr. Seth B. Smith, of the Canadian Fairbanks Co., and who installed the plant at
the power house, in addressing the Council
stated that he thought everything had been
gone into thoroughly, and he hoped the
council had found all he had said regarding the plant, had been carried out. The
city plant, he declared was as good as any
in the country. ,Mr. Routh of the Hinton
Electrical Company bore out Mr. Smith's
statements, and praised the generator very
highly, as regards the good results obtained from the temperature test. He hoped
the council would be pleased with the
Messrs. Hall & Russel spoke along similar lines.
Mayor DeHart in a short speech expressed the satisfaction felt by the council with
the plant, and the way it had been'. installed. The preliminary report of the tests
was highly satisfactory. "It affords me
great pleasure gentlemen to accept the
plant on behalf of the City of .Kelowna,"
said His Worship. After thanking Messrs.
Smith, Routh and Hall for their courtesy
and information, the acceptance was duly
endorsed by the Council.
Mayor DeHart then asked Mr. Hall to
remain to explain to the council certain extensions along Ethel Street to his (the'
Mayor) residence, which extensions were
ordered by the old council to be charged
to the Hinton Electrical Co., on the ground
that they were not authorized. ■•--•■
This matter was gone into exhaustively
by all the Aldermen, and: Mr. Hall gave
fullest information required, laying a plan
_f the' pole line system before the council.
The extension to Mayor DeHart's residence was only one of many chances from1
the original plan, and done with Engineer
Ashbridge. sanction. The original plan
of the lighting system was not laid out to
the' greatest advantage as regards economy
and service.: Considerable time was spent
clearing up this .matter, and .Mr. Hall
stated clearly that at that time, he went to
Engineer Ashbridge for approval or otherwise in any changes, and never to the
council, and as far' as he knew, the council
never authorized any of the changes made.
-After Mr7 Ashbridge'went away, the
council wohld give orders for any extensions.  ; • ,,.; )        .       ' i
After questioning by" different aldermen,
the council, felt justified in rescindirfg the
motion passed by the old council, to the
effect that the,,.Hinton Electrical Co. be
charged for the extension.

The conference between representatives
oif fruit growers and Boards of Trade, and
prominent officials of the C. P. R. and
Dominion Express Co., began on Monday
at Victoria. A number of matters were
brought before the railway officials, chiefly
in the matter of freight rates and the
minimum loads allowed on cars in order
to take advantage of rates. Full reports
are not to hand in time for going to press,
but some of these requests are granted.
Mr. T. W. Stirling, of Kelowna, was appointed on a resolution committee, and a
large number' of resolutions were submitted to them. In respect to the reduction
of freight rates to Winnipeg, in order that
B. C. could compete with Ontario fruit on
an equality, Mr. Lanagan, C.P.R. Assistant
Freight Traffic Manager, stated that the real
competition was with Washington, not
Ontario fruit. The growers ofthe Yakima
and Wenatchee were "dumping" their
second grade fruit at prices that were too
tempting for dealers. Thus any reduction
in freight rates would not help.
