City Council Meeting.
Early Closing of Hotel Bars By-
Law Read a Second Timer
The council met in the council
chambers on Tuesday. His Worship, the Mayor, in the chair,
present, Aldermen Buckland, Curts,
Gaddes and DeHart.
^ The minutes of last meeting
were readandadopted.
Correspondence on various matters was received and laid on ;the
table. A--cheque was received
from W. C. Brent, of Toronto, for
$5r112.50 in payment of School
debentures purchased by him. A
letter from the same party was also
received stating his willingness to
purchase $9,500 school debentures
and also and local improvement
debentures that the city may have
on hand. Permissiotfwas received
from the~in8pector" of boilers, for
the city to use the boiler at the
Power House at a pressure of 120
lbs., until the time that he would
be able to inspect. A letter was
also received from the Provincial
Board of Health, requesting the
city'to furnish a health report,
Byrlaw No. 52 was read for the
second time, and the council went
into committee as a whole to consider it. The first clause, .relating
to the hours which bars may keep
open for business was ' discussed.
Mr..1 Burne, representing Messrs.
Peab'ody and Wheeler appeared
before' the council- in  this  matter.
These gentlemen, he stated,  were   ^
s both $W&~w&jj^^ fodse"
nireor business" should be-regit- ,    r i   i - „
-"* hbui^of.'busii
-> ilated,  and'" thought "that
11. 'p.m.
.during the week was a reasonable
hour. As far as Saturday night is
concerned, they thought it a hardship that they had to close at 7
' p.m., as was contemplated by the
council. Mr. Burne urged on behalf of his clients,. that there was
no necessity-to, close early on Saturdays, as there were no large factories in Kelowna paying their men
oft on Saturday night, as in some
towns, when they might be tempted to spend their wages at _the
bars. It was also . a hardship on
/the working man, - that he should
[ not have the free use of the bar on
Saturday night, it being" practically
his only jhVe" night- of the .week.
He has to be at .work too early in
the'mornings to spend the other
evenings in the bars. .Messrs.
'Peabody and Wheeler also objected to the clause prohibiting the
throwing of-dice for drinks on, the
grounds that it lessened the treating system. They hoped that the
council could see its way to make
11 p.m. the closing hour for- every
~nightrin the^week— —
Aid. DeHart suggested that the
hourbe-made 10 p.m. on Saturday,
as this would allow time for any of
the country people who wished
access to the bars..
Aid. Gaddes remarked that this
province was behind  the rest in
the way of temperance  legislation;
and drew attention to  the N.W.T
, laws 'regarding ' hotels.    Saturday
-he-thought, ;was the  day when
.most of-the working people  drew
their pay, and recommended  that
the closing be about 7 p.m.   Some
; amusement was caused when  Mr.
Burne continued, "Saturday  night
is the night when the working men
feel at liberty to go* to  bed  tired.
'I  don't   mean ' drunk "gentlemen,
just tired."      ~" '
Chief Hidson  on being asked,
stated that he though 10.30  or 11
; p.m. reasonable hours  during the
, week, and 7 p.m. for Saturday. He
' had seen these hours" enforced  in
the N.W.T. and thought it a very
j-good thing.   He  had seen some
jmenr spend ' the" whole* of; their
wages rduring a   Saturday night,
. and he; also had considerable work
in keeping birder.
*    Aid. Curts remarked" that ~ under
these circumstances he thought it
better  to  help, the  workingman
save his wages. ^ *■    ,_      " '>->
Mr-Burnet   "That is raising the
" question of .enforcing a prohibitory
law on people who don't want it."
Aid. DeHart remarked that the
closing of the hotels' early would
mean that the business at the club
r would be increased.   This should
' also be closed,'  In this connection
the Mayor remarked that the city-
had no control over the club,
Aid. Gaddess: "The main object of the by-law is to protect the
workingmen who go there when
they receive their money on Saturday night.;*
In reply Aid. DeHart stated that
he thought most of the employees
were paid monthly.
Chief Hidson here informed the
Council "that some very rough
gangs come in on Saturday nights
from the saw mills in the country,
and he has frequendy been called
to quell a disturbance among these
men, in Chinatown.
The Mayor'—We have to consider the good of the town, not the
hotel keepers. The thing is to get
the earliest possible hour without
reacting on what we are trying to
do. It was finally decided that the
hours, should be 11 p.m. every
night except Saturday ,£ on which
night the bars should close at 7 p.
m. Any infringement of this bylaw will also render the offender
liable to a penalty of $100.00 fine
or imprisonment.
The transference of lots 1 and 2
block 54 from Jas. Bowes to the
city for school purposes, was discussed. A letter from the School
trustees was read, asking' asking
the Council to complete Jthe purchase of the lots for a school site.
The following motions were carried.
DeHart-Gaddes—That the transfer of lots 1 and 2, block 54, from
James Bowes to the city be accepted, and that a cheque be given
to the School trustees for $4000.00
in completion .of same.,  '

Mr. F. R..E. DeHart returned on
Friday with Mr. Jas. Gibb, from
Spokane, where they had been
winning laurels for Kelowna. As
the "Okanagan" came in sight a
large crowd gathered at the wharf
to pay tribute to the conquering
heroer The C.P.R. boat sent blast
which was answered by a wheesey
little whisde on the tug 'Kelowna'.
as a welcome. As the boat drew
in the Mayor gave the word for
"three cheers for DeHart", and
was supported with enthusiasm.
As Mr. DeHart stepped "ashore,
Mayor Sutherland tendered him
the congratulations of the City, Mr,
Speers doing the same for Kelowna
Board of Trade. Due credit must
be given Mr. DeHart for the energy
and, executive ability displayed by
him in winning these prizes for
Kelowna, and also to Mr. Jas.
Gibb, who, in the capacity of expert packer, helped largely in
making the Orchard City's exhibit,

_      Chronological Table of Orchard City's Victories
^^     In Competition   With  World's,. Fruit Qrowers.
j^ELOWNA from the outset has always been a winner in competition
**■ with fruit growers of any state or district, and her recent triumphs
indicate that she is holding her own in the rapid advancement that is
taking place generally in fruit culture. This can be attributed to various reasons," the chief of which of coursers the climate/which is one
of the finest on the American continent, and specially adapted to the
growth of all sub-tropical fruits, but as it now appears, apples in
particular. , „ . t    ,
Backing up the climate,'Kelowna has been fortunate in having a
number of energetic and intelligent fruit growers, who have made fruit
growing not only their business, but their hobby, and these men have
been ably assisted,by the Board of Trade and the business men of the
city, who have done all in vheir power to improve the method of
shipping and handling, encouraging and stimulating the production of
better fruit in any and every way possible. ~J" ""   '"

Once more the whole Province of  Brit,

to Kelowna 1"    The  value  of  this'great

Christmas Box of -inestimable ,value ;   for

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old, familiar carols play,.
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men!
We heartily wish all our readers
a Merry Christmas.
This is the season of good cheer.
The season of the holly and the
mistleto e, — the time'/ for bright
faces and generous impulses—for
gladsome greetings1—a time for
noble resolves to be born—a time
when the benevolent side of one's
nature should eclipse the sordid
side,—a time when the thoughts
should be turned towards home,—
a time when the usurping chains of
business should be ignored. A
time when the child with its golden
curls, the man with his silvered
locks, alike cry "Glory to God in
'highest, peace on earth, good will
to men."
Christmas is eminently the children's day. From the gray of early
dawn—it is the only day in winter
when their eyes open at that hour
—at the latest hour at night, let
everything give way to the litde
autocrats whose tyranny is courted
by every man or woman who has
any of the essence of love in the
breast Romp and tumble and
shout with them. When another
Christmas comes, some of them
will not be here, and those lhat
are will by one year be that much
further from the royalty that doth
so fittingly become them. Christmas is for the children—let everything bend to their enjoyment.

Lord Roberts "and the Army.
Lord Roberts recently delivered a striking speech in the house of Lords, dwelling
particularly on the following points: We
must have a strong Army as well as a
strong Navy, remembering our duties to
India and the Colonies.
This condition js non-existent, and we
can, therefore be invadhd.
We need a million trained men.
The rise of the German Navy has simplified invasion.
The Navy cannot guarantee us against
a surprise, and our present Home Army
has insufficient strength to cope with an
invading force.
Iu commenting on this, 'The Standard',
says: "There is not an intelligent and
sincere person to-day who does not believe
that Lord Roberts is mainly, right. What
is his case ? Lord Roberts believes that
invasion in force is not only possible, but
probable, and very likely imminent. Being
a prosessioeal soldier and noi an amateur
"expert," he regards these islands as forming a mere fraction of the territory to be
defendnd, and he argues that under given
conditions a large proportion of naval
strength might be required in distant seas.
He preceives that even if the fleet remained "concentrated" in Home waters a German invasion is still practicable.
Scouring of the White Horse.
The ancient White Horse on the Berkshire Downs, which marks the victory of
King Alfred at Ashdown, has in the past
few years been allowed to become overgrown with vegetation. Owing to the generosity of the Earl of -Craven it has now
been thoroughly scoured. Report does
not say whether this scorning has been as
thorough as the famous one described so
vividly in "Tom Brown's Schooldays,''
The Christmas spirit  also  is. in
the air and it is doubtful if there is
any city that has made more  elaborate preparations for the holidays
than   our  own.     The merchants
have responded to the  feeling  of
buoyancy that  the season creates
and they have loaded the  shelves

The question now is: What
shall Kelowna do with her prizes?
Gold medals and diplomas are
easily handled, but the latest addition to tuc lamiiy^isa-mucnmore
difficult proposition. A fruit ranch
down in the state of Washington
sounds very nice, but for obvious
reasons Kelownians don't want to
go there, and we can't spare De-
Hart down to look after it. Said
he was only going down to the
show to have some of Kelowna's
, fruit on exhibition as an advertisement to catch' the Eastern fruit
buyers.. But there's no saying now
what DeHart will bring home when
he goes on the war path.
This makes the fourth'free copy
of The Orchard City Record.   We
hope it has been acceptable to our
readers.   We are trying to make
it so, and trust not only to  grow
with the district,  but to  increase
our. facilities from time to  time  as
the opportunity arises.    We  have
endeavored  to  get a paper  into
every home in the district, and are
, happy, to say that so  far only  a
' few .have declined to became  regular subscribers. ■  There  are  no
doubt a number of names that we
have missed in spite of all, and we
'shall'be only too glad to send  the

V ceipt of a card. j

'•', die paper away to friends, and to
x encourage this we have decided to

The home of Mr. George Whelan, West-
Home Farm was,the scene of an interesting ceremony on' Wednesday evening,
December 16th, when his daughter Laura
was united in matrimony" to- Mr. John
Melchior Baily, of Kelowna, '}.'.'■■
Only the immediate friends and relatives
of the bridal pair were present at the
ceremony, which was performed by the
Rev. J. W. Wright, of Kelowni. The
young couple were the recipitants of a
numerous collection of valuable presents,
amongst which were several gems of
silverware from the bride's relatives in
England, and a handsome cheque from
her father. We understand that Mr. and
Mrs. Bailey are to become residents of
Kelowna, and we wish for them a happy
and prosperous married life.
Japanese emigration to the United States
is to be stopped by the Japanese Government. As soon as the Japanese diet meets
the Minister of foreign affairs, Baron
Komuna, will make official "announcement
that the Government has decided , to prohibit all emigration to the United States.
In settling this matter, it is understood that
there is no treaty, not even an exchange of
formal notes; but that nevertheless the so
called "Yellow Peril" is a ghost laid to

How the Great Showman Turned Hit
Death to Aeoount
Among the features e£ the parades
of the Barnum circa* there was formerly one that never failed to attract
attention. On the top of one of the
wild beast cages lay an enormous lion.
He was not confined In any way, and
nervous people watching the parade
would shudder at the sight and contemplate the terrible possibility of the
lion springing Into the midst of the
But the venerable old Mng of beasts
had reached the leonine • dotage, and
stiffened muscles and blunted claws
rendered htm harmless. He was as
mild as a kitten, and In' the whiter
quarters, where' ne was allowed to
'roam at will, sometimes had to be protected from the onslaughts of irreverent and mischievous puppies.
One night he wandered from the
quarters. In the coarse of hhrtravels
he chanced on a barn where a meek
eyed cow was placidly chewing her
cud. A faint flicker of the slumbering
Jungle spirit stirred his pulse, and.
with a crashing blow of the huge fore
down beside his victim, be went to
sleep and dreamed of the time when he
was a shaggy little -whelp playing with
his brothers under the bright sun of bis
faroff African home.
In the morning; the owner of the cow,
a stalwart fenynle with the blood of
Irish kings in her veins, entered the
barn with milk: pall In hand. She was
filled with wroth at the sight that met
her gnze. With a keen edged ax In her
hand nnd grtro 'determination' In her
eye she fearlessly approached the sleeping Hon, and when the men sent out to
search for him arrived he lay cold In
death. Barnum promptly paid for the
dead cow and engaged to appear on
exhibition "the woman who In mortal
combat had slain a lion."

Ellison School District
(From our own Correspondent.)
Among the many joys that
Christmas brings to the young, and
one especially gratifying to parents,
is the year-end school closing,
when the bright-eyed boys and
girls dressed in their best, with a
bright smile for everybody, pleased
to show forth in song, recitation or
spelling match, the result of a
term's hard application of study of
the lessons set by a careful teacher.
We have had such a closing in
connection with Ellison School,
and the community may well be
proud of the progress the children
have made under the able tuition
of Miss Anna E. Harvey, who we
are sorry to say is taking her leave
of us to attend College again—We
wish her every success.
The exercises commenced at 2
p.m. Miss Harvey, the teacher
welcoming the visitors in her usual
pleasing manner, following which
she conducted the lesson review, a
spelling match being the first item
taken. At the end of half an hour,
(the time limit), Bertha Geen, Alva
Geen and James Carney were still
on the floor, and were well applauded by those present, also receiving as a reward of their effort
the handsome sum of $2.00 each,
donated by Mr. Geo. Watt. Other
classes were also heard with splendid results. ,
During a recess of ten minutes
the visitors viewed with pleasure
the drawings and paintings exhibited by the scholars, which were
very creditable to them.
A miscellaneous program then
followed, the chair being taken by
Mr. M. Hereron.
Among many pleasing numbers
were, flag drills, recitations by
Chas. Hereron, Kate Carney, Eva
Dunton, song by Lizzie Conroy. •
Mr. M. Hereron in a most congenial way lead the way to speech
making, by welcoming everybody
present, and among his many
worthy remarks referred with some
pardonable pride to the good luck
this school had in always being
able to secure good teachers. He
also drew attention to the fact that
seven pupils of this school had not
lost a minute during this term'.
Interesting speeches followed
by Messrs. Hall, Conroy, Christian,
•Ball,Ald.Sterling, also Miss Harvey.
A grand snpper and Santa Claus
concluded a verv pleasant entertainment—$60.00 in presents being
on the tree.

Dere Mister Edditer,
Yore lokel manijer wot runs
yore paper for you up here 'as
gone away for an 'oliday and 'as
'arst me to be the undertaker of
the distiick in seeing that Kelowna
keeps well posted with the news
jurin' his absence wile he is away
all the time till 'e comes back. So
without further apolojy the trouble
will now begin.
Eccleston's pig Jimmie got to
trespassing on the Stirling lay out
larst week an' after upsetting a pail
of water wot George had packed
about half a mile started in to
chaw the tent ropes. George he
up and made out after him but
tripped over the pig pail and got
soaked for his pains. He swears
that he will eat more bacon than
ever in fewcher.
Parson Thorpe was up here
preachifying larst Sunday and the
way ne staggered home I mean
the 'orse at night made him I mean
the parson kind o' late for church
in Kelowna as the road was so bad
and he I mean the orse wasn't very
The farmers hear are startin in
to think of nex shear's crops. You
see the Dry Valley was onusull
dry lars yeer and maybe some of
the boys was onusull wet and so
theyre short of the reddy and got
to begin oncommon erly figgering
out prospecks.
E' Bowers expects to keep on
running Darby and Brownie in the
old democrat nex year. Bye the
weigh we 'ave a regler male service up here now and E' Bowers
kindly brings up the male twice a
week wen he goes to town that
offen. 'Ocoarse E' doesn't always
go in twice a week and then we
don't get the male regler those
weeks as he doesn't go in regler.
We don't pay E' anythink as yet
but there's goin to be a consider-
ashun meetin next fall to work out
a system of voluntery taxashun but
we don't think E' would 'take pay
thats why there aint no hurry
about the considerashun meetin
till next Fall anyway. I thought ye
might think it funny if I didn't 'ave
told you who. the considerashun
meetin isn't till next fall thats why
I menthund it at all anyway.
Blame this noospaper business
anyway I hope yore lokel manijer
'il soon be back as I can't think of
nuts for news.
Our schulmaster and the' missis
has gone off for a holiday too. The
kids are gittin to be' pretty eddicat-
ed since we started in with a schule
up here. Space, won't permit- a
list of the 'onner, role but I may
say there all pretty smart kids anyway lately since the schule came
in among us and the way they can
figger up away above fourteen is
just a treat and shows the benefits
of sound learnin' in rooral schules.
We had the public • closing last
Friday but Tommy Simpson was
the only public present barring the
kids and sort o' felt lonesome
among the lack of any other public
besides himself.
There ain't nothinkj else newsy
up here this week excep' that I
think I'll start eddication myself
next term if there's goin to, be a
night school for groneups.

The funeral ofXhas. Heber Percy
whose remains arrived in Kelowna
last Friday took place on Saturday,
the service being held in St. Michael and All Angels' Church, j Particulars were also received on Friday
from Captain Watson, Highland
Ranch, 115 miles from Caribyu
Road, for whom the young' man
was working, relating to the sad
accident that caused Mr. "Percy's
death. It seems that ne had gone
to the stable to get a revolver out
of a saddle holster.which was hanging overhead. In reaching up for
the weapon, something appeared
to catch the hammer, discharging
it and killing him instantly. The
deceased was living at the" Guisachan Ranch for' a year previous
to going north, and was a promising
lad, and general favorite. He was
the son of the Rev. H. U. Heber-
Percy, of Leasingham Steaford,
Lincolnshire, England, and has a
brother living at the Guisachan
