Array City Council Meeting
New Hotel fBy-Law Introduced
i—'Proposal for City to' Take
Over Fair Grounds.
The council met in the council
chamber, on Tuesday, His Worship the Mayor in the chair. Present, Aldermen Buckland, Stirling,
Curts and Gaddes.
The matter of passing by-laws to
make drunkenness an offence was
brought up. His Worship stated
that Chief Hidson had complained
'that the decisions in court of Magistrate Burne, were such that it is
almost useless to arrest anyone at
the present time for drunkeness,
Mr. Burne claiming that under the
present by-laws, unless a man is
disorderly as well as being drunk,
it does not constitute an offence.
A by-law relating to.these matters
is at present being amended byMr.
Burne, and will be presented at the
next meeting.
His Worship then brought up a
bill that ne had drafted, to reg-
ulate the hours for selling liquor at
the local houses. This bill had
been under consideration by the
Council for the past two or three
months, and expert legal advice
from Vancouver made it clear that
the city was within .its rights in
passing such  a by-law.   .The" by-
- law read by the Mayor, was taken
from similar by-laws enacted by
the Vancouver city council, relating to the same matter. According to the police reports, it is necessary to have the hours curtailed,
or to have night watchmen. • His
Worship further stated that, this
by-law would certainly'reduce * the
amount of police work. > The class
- of people mostly getting into
trouble, are "the "working men, who
during~the" day have to attend to
their work, doing their drinking at
night, He suggested also that the
curtailing of the said hours of business, might have the effect of making better workmen for the employers. Under the present provincial law, the only regulation relating to the liquor business, is the
bars be closed up at. 11 p.m. on
on Saturdays. This allows bars to
be kept open at all hours, and the
~police have been into one of the
hotels - and broken up gangs at
4 o-'clock in'-the morning. The
curtailed hours would not be a
hardship on anyone, as there were
no late boats coming in with travellers.
The by-law brought up by the
Mayor was read for the first time,
and  makes every licensed place
_, close at a stipulated hour, on each
night of the week, until a stipulated
hour in the morning; save only in
cases where a requisition for liquor
for medical purposes, is presented;
signed by a medical practictioner.
There shall also be no liquor,
whether sold 'or not, consumed on
the premises during prohibited
hours,-except by the licensee, his
family or lodgers in the house, and
any infraction of these regulations
shall constitute an offence. All
bar-rooms shall be so arranged
that a full view may be obtained
■ during prohibited hours. No card
play or throwing of dice, whether
for money or drinks to be permitted
in any licensed 'place. No Licensee
shall permit any child under eighteen to frequent any bar, or room
where liquors are sold.
The   matter   of   regulating - the
.billiard room was also brought up,
Alderman Buckland stating that he
had been complained to by the
fathers of some of the boys attending the' high school, who spent
,,   time in the billard room, that should
- have been devoted to school duties.
Iff remarking on this'Aid. Gaddes
said that when he had to appeal to
- the city council to correct his boys,
he would consider that there was
something, wrong with himself.
- Aid. Buckland: . "The chief
complaint seems to be that they
neglect their school work".
. Aid. Stirling: "That is rather a
common complaint with boys I
think". ^       '
A by-law, relative to this matter
is being drafted by the city solicitor? and will probably' appear at
the next meeting.
Messrs. Raymer, Dilworth and
Lawson appeared before the coun
cil as a delegation from the Agri-'
cultural and Trades Association,
to submit a proposition that the
city take over the A! & T. grounds,
on the following conditions: That
the city pay off the present indebt-
edess of the Association, about
$2500.00. Paint the .buildings,
and put same in "good state, of repair. Increase grounds so as to
have a good race track. That the
A. & T. Association shall have full
use of the buildings and grounds
at fair time, and also that the A. &
T, Association shall have all gate
receipts at fair time. The council
furthermore, to erect a high fence
around the grounds.
Mr. Dilworth, in speaking for the delegation, said that the idea in bringing this
proposition forward now, is that the matter
could" be submitted to the people at the
forthcoming elections.
His Worship the Mayor, brought up the
matter of barb wire fences alongside the
city sidewalks. Complaints regarding
these fences, had appeared in the 'Courier'
and they were a nuisance and danger to
pedestrians. A resolution was passed
stating that barb wire fences being a
source of danger to the public, owner
should be requested to remove them,
where they are close to the sidewalks.
The renting of other offices as city
offices was brought up by the city clerk,
Mr. Bigger having bought the present
building and intending to remove and
occupy it shortly.
Mr. Curts presented the report of the
city scavenger and a letter askingfor an
increase in wages.
The insurance on the power house was
discussed at length, and it was thought advisable to distribute the business among
the companies doing business here.
Mr.' Hurifer "appeared before the council,
to ask permission to cut certain guy wires
on the eity pole line system, which interfere with the moving of his building, and
also the cost of doing so. The matter was
left to the electrical engineers to deal with.
'    MOTIONS CARRIED.
'- Buckland-Gaddes:   That the  following
accounts be referred to the  finance  committee, and paid if found correct.

work on it.

Kingston Student* out for a Spree.
In order to celebrate the Alma Mater
Society elections, 500 Queens University
Students went on the warpath Saturday,
ending a night of rioting with six of the
ringleaders in jail. A rescue of these six
was planned, but the students met the revolvers of the constabulary and soon cooled
down. ' There were a number of free
fights and cracked heads in the mix-up.
The meeting in the Presbyterian
church on Monday night to discuss
local option, was not very well attended, tho' some warm arguments
were raised for and against Local
Option.
The Rev. H. P. Thorpe took the
chair and opening with a short address, said : Our meeting tonight
is - especially to consider local
option, tho' not to be considered
from a local standpoint only. I
would stand on equal grounds.and
say that drunkenness is a great evil.
The next great question seems to
be—will local option do away with
it ? Is it a remedy for this evil ?
There might be some here who
will be prepared to say yes, and
some may be prepared to say no.
Some may think that we should go
further than local option, and
speak of prohibition. • We want to
consider this thing carefully and
candidly. Those who are anxious
to 'know how local option- will
work are invited to ask questions.
First I will state what, local option
is. I understand it to be, the power given to any locality to say
whether they will or will not -have
a licensed house. I am prepared
to say that people have a right to
have their say in this. The majority should decide all questions 'of
importance. Is it a right thing,
that a few in authority should have
the right to say whether or not we
should have licensed houses ? The
deciding of these questions
should be in the hands of the

CHOSEN FRIENDS' SOCIAL
An open social was giverr "on
Thursday by the Canadian Order
of Chosen Friends. Invitation cards
were sent out to the friends of the
members, and a good sized gathering was the result. After speeches by the officers of the "Lodge on
the origin and objects of the Order,
cards were- indulged in, and various other games. The lady members "provided supper, after which
,a dance ended a most enjoyable
evening.   The C. O. C. F. is a new
roaf J organization in, Kelowna, but has a
jority, instead of being decided,byj^ad'Vsizfed-' membership- already,
Sir M. Allan to Succeed Lord Strathcona.
London, Dec. 14. The Mail says that
although the 'successor to Lord Strathcona
as High Commissioner for Canada has not
yet been appointed, it is understood that
the post has been offered to Sir Montaguer
Allan of Montreal, head of the Allan
SteamshipjCo,, who is not however asked
to decide immediately.
Canada's Mint.
Lt.-Col. Rogers, of Ottawa, announced
in Montreal last week that the Canadian
Mint would start right away with the
coinage of gold. The Canadian dies not
being ready the permission of the'British
Government has been given to use British
dies Until the end of the year, when the
Canadian will be ready, Each of the
Canadian minited coins, will be inscribed
with the letter 'C'.beneath the King's head.
Only about 250 will be minted, which will
give them an additional valuC from a
numismatic standpoint.
two or three people'
The meeting.was then thrown
open for any questions on the subject, and advantage was taken of
this by a number of those present.
The question was asked: ■ If ,there
was only one license in this city,
would there be as much drinking
as if there were three ? Is anyone
prepared to say whether more
licenses increases the drinking?
This was threshed out with different arguments, one person suggesting that inasmuch as several stores
in the same line of business increases competition, so several
licenses increases competition, and
as a matter of bourse, drunkenness.
Comparisons were drawn between prohibition and non-prohibition towns, one party giving an
instance of a Manitoba town
where there was no ' license, and
showing it to be dead as far as
businesses concerned. On account
of_theJack of good accommodation
in that particular place, the business was diverted to neighboring
towns, which had licensed houses.
The high rates charged in Summer-
land which is a non-license town,
for accommodation was brought
up in favor of licenses. It was
agreed that the high rates were beyond the purse of a laboring man.
Against this it was stated that the
laboring man had the .option of
boarding himself in a tent, or
living in a private boarding house
at reasonable rates, as many do in
Kelowna.' The old, old story of
there being more drunkenness in a
prohibition town than in a non-
prohibition town, lost none of its
stalencss in being v revived again.
In reply to this Mr. Herdman said
that although some old topers will
manage to get liquor anyway, the
drinking was not done openly,
and that therefore there was not
the temptation for the young man
who had not become addicted to
the use of alcoholic liquor. Mr.
Herdman also read a report of the
chief of police at Charlottetown, in
which it was claimed that there
were very few arrests for drunkeness in Charlottetown, since the
^people had prohibitory law  there.
Regarding the financial benefit
to a town, from license fees, the
following statistics were given of
East and West Grand Forks, N. D.:
-East Grand Forks ha3 42 saloons,
-West Grand Forks has no saloons.
East Grand Forks receives $ 10,
000 a year, revenue from licenses.
West Grand Forks, receives nothing. The assessment of East
Grand Forks $384,000, while West
Grand ^Fbrks'.is $3,500,000,   and
and it is also the only order of this
kind, that is open to both ladies
and gentlemen.

SEED GUESSING COMPETITION
The seed guessing competition,
being run by Mr. W. B. M. Calder,
opened on Saturday, and judging
from the number of competitors,
the contest will be a warm one.
" How many seeds go to make a
pumpkin" is the question that is
worrying the young minds. The
pumpkin in question is exhibited
in Mr. Calder's window, beside the
fine doll, which will be the prize.
"The results of the compteitiohwill
be given on Christmas Eve.
C. O. L. CO.'S SALE
The Central Okanagan Land Cos
auction sale on-Tnursuay,—was iair-
ly well attended, but would probably have been much larger, if it
had not been for the wheat block"
ade in the east, many farmers down
there being unable to get the money for this year's crop, and so were
deterred from coming. Dr. Gaddes
informs us thatthe large advertising
of the sale, has interested many
people in all parts of the country,
and brought numerous inquiries
about this district. A block of
lots in Woodlawn were bought by
Vancouver and local people.
Kelowna Ma\es Good
Against  World
Competition.
The keen interest with which
Kelownaites awaited the • results of the Spokane fair was
rewarded on Saturday, when
the following reports were
flashed across the wires from
Mr, DeHart—"Dec. 11th, to
Mr. H. R,Millie, Kelowna, I
have won about~$4,000.00 in
prizes, will- write, F. R. E. De-
Hart." and "Dec. 12th, to H. H.
Millie, Kelowna, J-Jave just won
another $600.00 prize by two
points, F. R. E. DeHart".
The following items appeared in the Saturday Evening

LIQUOR AND LICENSE.
The vexing lqiuor question has
been brought well into the lime
light in Kelowna during the past few
days, and slumbering dogs seem to
have been aroused in both camps.
The advocates of the cause were
never so enthusiastic as at present
the ladies having entered the ranks
of late in ever increasing numbers.
Legislation and. reform is being
steadily and perseyeringly pushed
on the platform and everywhere.
But unfortunately ( for those horrid commissioners) Bachus seems
to be prospering, and the landlords
are getting fatter and heavier every
day, whilst the poor old tippler,
the cause of all the trouble, continues to drink himself into maudlin
insensibility, unwept and unsung.

JAWN D. AGAIN.
There has been considerable
complaint of late regarding the
mixing of water with the coal oil,
by — whom? Not by the local
dealers certainly, as the coal oil
cans come full, and sealed. Besides which, every dealer makes
the same complaint One of John
Rockefellers representatives visited
Kelowna last week presumably to
see who dared cast reflections on
the uprightness, and honorable
dealings of the Standard! Oil CoT,
but nevertheless was glad to refund
one of our citizens $1.50, on. a $2
00 can purchased by him.- Guess
Johnny is trying to make up for
his recent law court expenses ,or
else going to endow a church.
ADAMITE BATTLE.
Everyone remembers the recent
invasion of Manitoba and Saskatchewan, by James Sharpe and: his
band of fanatics. '"'', ■
This man and seven followers
armed with rifles, claimed to have
been sent by Heaven on a Mission
to the Doukhobors. After, giving
the Provincial Governments considerable trouble, he was turned
down, by the Doukhabors, returnr
ing to the States. On the 9th of
December these religio-maniacs
opened fire in Kansas City on some
police officers who were sent to
arrest them for assault on a citizen.
James Sharp, known as "Adam
_God!*, two men and one gjd meny
bers of his party, opened fire,
hitting two of the officers. - During
the melee the Adamites escaped to
their housebpat on the river, where
they were finally arrested, but not
until the girl, Lola Pratt Was shot
and killed. One police officer was
killed outright and two others are
in a dangerous condition. The
leader was shot six times by a
policeman and will  probably die.

Rev. H.P.TKorpe has very kindly
consented tbi hold*' a- service fortnightly in -the school house, and
the ^attendance shows that his
kindness;is.highly appreciated.
Judging from the way the Mc-
Kinley boys, Bowers and Ecclestone
have been careering round Watson
Lake during the past week, one
would think that water records had
ceased to exist, and that ice records
were the only things worth claiming
We smile in a dry way up here
when we hear of bands of armed
men scouring the mountains for
deer, and coming back with one
tail, and losing their provisions too.
Three weeks ago George Stirling
shot a doe on the Ellison Mountain. Tommy Simpson has since
shot a fine buck and a mountain
goat on the same range. And we
get back in time for dinner into
the bargain. "
Howard and Gladys Thorpe are
still staying with Mr. and Mrs.
George Stirling, and they like the
camp life fine.,. Howard has got
a new air gun that fires rubber
bullets, and the way he hunts
round the forest, breathing out
threatenings and slaughter, augurs
ill for any bears that might be foolish enough to cross his track.
A meeting was held in the school
house on Monday evening, and a
Debating Society was formed. D.
Bowers, president and Bob Ecclestone, secretary! After, the business was over, the boys showed
some of their dormant talent in
a lively discussion on the best
method of breaking cayuses. It
was evident that most were in
favor of trying '■> kindness, and if
that failed, to dig in the spurs and
hang on to the 'jug handle,' like
grim death. For further instruction, amateurs are invited to communicate with Ed. Bowers. H ours
of attendance 10 to 4. (Owing to
the nature of the language sometimes necessary, no cayuses are
broken in on Sundays.)

Ellison School District
■ t ; (From'our own Correspondent.)
The Ellison school district has
been so named by the Superintendent of education, to distinguish

Okanagan West and also Okanagan Mission, a new district with a
better claim to the name than our
school possessed, though for 13
years we gloried in the title of
Okanagan Mission. The school
house though an unpretentious
little building, is nevertheless a
great centre of attraction, and we
are proud to say our school is one
df the best conducted in theValley.
We . have earnest energetic trustees,-who always secure the best
teachers and keep the school in
up-to-date order. There is an attendance of. from twenty to thirty
pupils daily, bright, happy children, advanced beyond their years,
iniall their studies. • Well conducted, and patriotic, they glory in the
UnioTTJac'invhicrr"fibats_gaiIy-on
their school. But not only is the
school of use in forming the young
ideas, but the elders too, assemble
one evening each week, and hold
Literary meetings. Debates, recitations, songs and music pass a
couple of hours pleasantly, and a
stranger visiting the district between 9 and 10 o'clock on. Tuesday evenings, will be surprised to
see the rnany lanterns diverging
from the school house, and lighting the way home for the many
attendants.,      ,

SUMMERLAND TO HAVE CANNING
„..■.,: FACTORY
At a meeting in Summerland last week,
it)Was proposed to organize a company
with sufficient capital to equip and' carry
on a canning business next year. $10,000
worth of stock were subscribed for on the
spot, and a provisional board of directors
was appointed to solicit further, subscriptions and to seek incorporation.
' One day a very "voluble lady took her
daugter, who was ill, to see, Abernethy.
"Which of you two wants to consult me >"
said Abernethy.    ' My daughter,'   replied

question to the girl. Before she had a
chance to reply her mother began a long
story. Abernethy told her to be quiet, and
and repeated his question to the girl. A
second time the woman began a story, and
a second time he told her to be quiet, then
she interrupted him a third time. 'Put
'your,tongue out,' he said to. the mother.
'But there's nothing the matter with me,'
she exclaimed. 'Never mind, put out your
tongue out," he commanded. Thorough/
over-awed, the woman obeyed. „ Now
keep it out." said Abernethy, and he proceeded to examine the girl.

How .They do it in California
' 'TheCalifornia Fruit Growers' Association
Workingin cpnjunctionwith the Union Pacif-
iceRailway, determined upon a'publicity
campaign to get people to buy oranges. The
fruit growerswanted an enlarged marketand
the railroad wanted a long haul to market,
ao together jhey bought newspaper, space to
tell the Iowans of California oranges. The
first shipment ofc oranges .comprised a full
train and the fruit found a ready market. A
second train of twenty.fivecarsbroughtmore
than the market price. Iowans this year increased their consumption of oranges by' 70
per cent, over any preceding. The people
jw^re satisfied with/its returns from freight
charges, and the growers were well pleased'
with the prices which the fruit brought. All
three got theirmoney Worth andtherailroad
and the association have their principal expended in advertising back in their pockets
aid along with it the'reward of enterprise.'
?But the profit is not all accounted for- yet.
Interest on the*'original advertising outlay'
will be collected by the, railroad and the
fruit growers for years to come. -
Does advertising pay? No practical man
of affairs presumes any longer even to consider the question on«-of a debatable nature.

A suffragette recently took a petition to
an old fellow in a Lancashire village and
politely asked him if he would sign it. He
looked at the document suspiciously for a
moment or two.'then asked, " What is't
aboot?" •
" It is in favor of the woman" s move-'
ment," the lady replied, in her most insinuating tone of voice and a gladsome smile.
"I'm ag'in it," ejaculated the old man,'
with the emphasis of one who had some
domestic felicity? "A woman who's alius
a-movin' is alius a-getti'n in trouble. If
you've got anything ter keep her still I'll

The immigration of Japanese into Jan-
ada for the first seven months of the
present fiscal year-—April to October inclusive—amounted in all to 434 persons,
285 being men, 123 women and 26 children. For the corresponding period last year
Japanese immigrants into the Dominion
totalled 6648.
This great decrease shows the effectiveness of the arrangement concluded by Mr.
Rodolphe Lemieux with the Japanese Government to restrict immigration. No more
Japanese or Hindoos will be admitted into
the Dominion this year.
The total immigration into Canada from
all countries during the months from April
to October amounted to 109,575 persons a
decrease of 102,449, or 48 per
cent., as compared with the same period
of last year. The immigrants from the
United States for the seven months numbered 50,238, an increase of 783.
If the Hmdoo3 in British Columbia, misled by agitators anxious to foment trouble
for the Imperial and Canadian Governments, and backed by the seditious Hindoo
organizations in Chicago and Seattle, continue their present attitude of opposition
to the project of migration to British Honduras many may be deported to India by
the Immigration Department as being undesirable citizens and dependents on public charity.

Equally as true as the old adage "No foot
no horse", is   the  fact,   "Poor/teeth  poor
horse".   The former signifies that a horse
with bad fett rrsuta in' lameness,  and   is
therefore useless; the latter  that  a  horse
with irregularities and abnormalities of the
teeth, make proper mastication impossible,
with indigestion and unthriftiness as natural
consequences.   Wdcannot subject a horse
to domestication with its   many unnatural
conditions, without its   attendant  harmful
results.    A ho"rse must have perfect  teeth
to withstand the grinding year  after  year,
of many quarts of  good   hard oats  daily.
Our milling machinery gets out of order; in
the same way, only more   so,   the ' milling
machinery of the horse becomes defective.
The most common   diseases   of  horses'
teeth may be roughly grouped as follows:
(a)    Irregularities    when   developing.
The grinders are divided into temporary
and pcrmancnt.and it is at the time of the
shedding of the temporary, and the   appearance of  the  permanent   teeth, that
horses suffer under this heading.
(4) Irregularities due to some teeth
being softer or harder than normal, resulting in some teeth growing too long,
and others too shorf, thereby mechanically interfering with the grinding motion.
(c) Disease of tooth proper, such as
caries, destruction of the cement and
dentine of the teeth.
(d) Diseases of the alveoli, resulting
in periostitis and ulceration, accompanied
with excruciating pain, and sometimes
resulting in a fistula to the surface, and
enlargement of the bone.
(e) And what is present in nearly all
horses that have been grinding oats for
a few years, are sharp corners and projections, which interfere with mastica-
cation by cutting into the tongue and
cheek, on account of which the horse
acquires the habit of "bolting his food",
swallowing his food hurriedly, and in an
unprepared condition.
The interferences with normal mastication are manifested by symptoms easily
recognized by the observant horseman.
The most common are,—dropping of food
from mouth partly chewed, forming balls
which are often found in the mangers, or
in popular phrase " the horse quits his food."
Rolling of the tongue, causing slobbering; cautious grinding; holding the head
sideways. Other important symptoms are
the presence of food in the mouth considerable time after eating, pulling on one
line whilst driving, nervousness about the
head, and, most prevalent of all, general
poor condition, indicated by loss of flesh,
rough dry hair, sweating easily, and lack
of energy and stamina. If decay and ulceration has taken place, there wjll be an
offensive smell in the mouth.
To ensure proper digestion the process
of grinding and mastication must be perfect. If the food is not crushed, and the
saliva is not thoroughly incorporated, the
stomach is handicapped, and cannot perform its physiological functions, with the
consequence that sufficient assimilation \>f
nourishing properties does not take place.
In its endeavour to conpensate, the
stomach calls for more food, hence the
avaricious appetite of some unthrifty
horses.
We can safely say, that one quart of food
properly masticated, is worth four quarts
poorly masticated. It takes lots of coal to
keep up the engine that leaks. In the same
way it requires abundance of food to keep
up sufficient strength in the horse that
eliminates quantities of food unmasticated,
undigested. Further, many cases of colic
are" attributed to abnormalities of the teeth,
inasmuch as unprepared food in the stomach is liable to ferment, and evolve large
quantities of gas. The impaired process
of digestion being due to the teeth, indicates the line of treatment, which consists

CANADIAN GROWN
TOBACCO
A long account appears in the Standard
of Empire on Canadian Grown Tobacco,
and some interesting information is given.
After a lengthy description of the tobacco
growing districts of Eastern and Western
Canada, the article says ; "There can be
no doubt whatever that the prospects of
the Canadian Tobacco Industry are extremely bright, and when these begin to
be realised as there is every reason to believe that they will be in the near future,
Canada will then take a high place amongst
the Empire's producers of tobacco, and
help to < convert the dream of "Empire
grown .tobacco for- the Empire", into an
actuali reality. In/speaking of Kelowna
the writer goes on to "say, "The cultivation
is stilljri its infancy, but tho infant give's
promise of robust and vigorous manhood,
---climate and soil in these. districts
(Kelowna1 and other parts of the .Okanagan), are' both' entirely suitable for "'the
growch'of • high grade tobaccos,, suitable
for cigar fillers." Mr, Charlan, the Dominion Government tobacco exp'ert has a
high opinion of the Kelowna leaf, and - it
is his,unprejudiced opinion, that in the
development <5f the British Columbia por.
don of,the industry tho qucsion of proper

Peachland News,
(From our_own Correspondent)
A long list of new books have been  recently added to the library. ' ' ■„ .
On Wednesday last a little company of
Kelowna's musical people paid a visit to
Peachland and with the help of a few of
the native Peachlanders gave a most" enjoyable concert in the Presbyterian church.
Trie concert was under the auspices of the
Young People's Association and the_ proceeds went towards the piano fund.
Every item on the program was a treat
The visitors from Kelowna were Mr. and
Mrs. Thompson, Mrs. McTavish, Mr. Harvey, Mr. Davies and Miss Smith. The
latter arranged the. Program and acted
as accompanist. Each part was opened
by an instrumental trio, comet, violin and
piano played respectively by Messrs.
Thompson, Shaw and Tupton. There
were solos by Mrs. Thompson, Mrs. Pollard and Mr. Harvey, a quartette by Mrs.
Thompson, Mrs. McTavish and Messrs.
Harvey and Davies and a quintette composed of the whole Kelowna contingent.
Then there were cornet solos and violin
solos- by Messrs Thompson and Shaw.
Altogether it was one of the most enjoyable musical evenings that Peachland has
ever enjoyed. The audience was most
enthusiastic and encored almost every
item. The Kelowna friends -will be wel
corned whenever they come back again.
A LUCKY GUESS.;

etition was decided on Monday,
and proved Jack Wilson to be the
fortunatecompetitor.his guess being
36 hours, 40 minutes, 32 seconds,
which left him 2 minutes, I second
out. The watch was wound up at
9 a.m. on Saturday by Mayor Sutherland, and. placed under a glass
case which was sealed up. Monday morning showed the watch to
have run 36 hrs., 42 min., and 31

made, although out of these, eleven
had to be. destroyed on account of
not being signed. Guesses ranging

Okanagan Optimist
Few of our readers need an introduction
to Mr. George Whelan, the prosperous
owner oi Cloverdale' Farm.    Mr. Whelan
has gone through" many experiences  since
he  left  the east   India   Docks,   London,
getting on for~haIf a century .ago.   Travelling first to New Zealand, he^ spent some
years roaming around that country, coming
to   British   Columbia- in -1870.     Shortly
afterwards he caught the  gold  fever, and
1872 saw him delving  after the  precious
metal  up   in   the-»Peace; River country.
This life was evidently not a bed of  roses,
for in the fall of the same year he return<
ed to Kamloops, and wintered there. t In
the spring of the year following Mr. Whelan went on a preliminary  survey  for the
C.P.R. from Kamloops to Fort' Edmonton,
leaving .this also in the same oear to come
to the Okanagan • Mission, Valley.    Soon
after coming here Mr. Whelan  bought an
interest in  the  property  now  owned, by
Mr. Pridham,  and  also   pre-empted  320
acres adjoining.   After selling out  his interest in the  above  property our  friend
lived   on   the  property   now owned' by
Thomas Bulman, also pre-empted by him,
on which place he  lived  for  over  thirty
years.   In describing  the  growth  of the
country, Mr. Whelan says that when< lie
came   here,   there   was    nothing   but   a
Siwash trail from Vernon to the Okanagan
Mission Valley, and the country-in all  the
roughness of a wilderness.  This gentleman
is enthusiastic in predicting a bright future
for the Okanagan Valley and he describes
the climate as the finest in the world. -
