The Northern Okanagan Poultry
Show held at Enderby on the 29th
and 30th January was very- successful, and ^ery valuable information was obtained by poultry-
men regarding the breeding and
rearing fjf stock. > The show was
held in the Knights of Pythias Hall,
which is lit by electricity and was
kept at even and warm temperature during the show. The accommodation was. excellent, and
the systematic manner in which
the exhibits were placed and the
excellent attention given to the
birds reflect great credit on the
management, andx their painstaking secretary, Mr.' English. ' Birds
were sent from nearly as far west
as Vancouver, and there were also
birds from distant Manitoba. This
show was a marked success, but
the number of birds shown, about
200, was hardly as large as expected. The judging was' done by
Dr.'A. W. Bell, of Winnipeg, a
prominent fancier himself and one
of the best judges of poultry in
Canada. The score card system
was used, and Dr. Bell was most
obliging to exhibitors in showing
them where the defects of the
birds lay, and thus prepared the
way for a much greater show next
year. He stated that some of the
birds would compare favourably'
with anything he had seen in the
large city shows.
The management of the show
advertised that they were prepared
to make,, sales for1'10 per cent,
commission, and Mr. T. Cockburn
Kerr,' who took up an exhibit from
Kelowna, washable to 'dispose of
some at a fancy price, as each
bird in the exhibit was successful
in gaining first place in their class.
Local breeder's are recommended to exhibit'at Enderby's next
show, when they will receive'every1
attention and be enabled to sell or
exchange their birds'. " -
, The townl of Enderby is to be
congratulated on, their enterprise
in getting up the -Show, and it will
greatly . further the 'interests of
poultry 'breeders in all the surrounding districts. ,
Late reports speak' favorably",of
the cohdition/'of Rev. -Wright's
little daughter, at the hospital.
-A public meeting of ratepayers
was  held  in   Raymer's   Hall   on
Thursday evening the 4th inst. for
the purpose* of discussing certain
by-laws  which  the  council  have
under consideration, chief amongst
which was that for the raising of a
sum of $30,000 for the purchasing
of Mr. Lloyd-Jones' property on" the
lake   shore  as  a public park for
city of Kelowna.   As this matter is
one which has aroused considerable  interest there was   a   good
attendance at the ^meeting. ■ Mr. J.
W. Jones acted as chairman.      . -/>
Mayor DeHart, who   was  first
called upon to address the meeting, stated that as is already fairly
well  known to   the, public,, -Mr.
Lloyd-Jones had made an offer to
the city of land on the shore of the
lake amounting to about 36 acres
for the sum of $29,000 dollars, the
offer to remain open until the 20th
of this month, and that the by-law
for the, raising, of the * necessary
funds had been rushed through in
order that--it  might be  fully dis-
cussed,at the present meeting. Two
other by-laws were also under consideration, viz.:   for the raising-of
$17',000,to meet payments already
due_ and. to .further carry on the
the work of the city's-electric light
and water undertaking;' and for the
for the raising of $2,000 to pay- off
the  deficit  on  the  municipal accounts'for the past year.  '     ^  -
-The purchase of the park being
of much greater importance, continued Mr. DeHart, the council had
not thought it advisable to bring up
at present the question of the ac-
puisition by the city of the Agricultural    and   Trades   Association's
grounds,  fearing that if they had
done so it might have lead to some
confusion in the minds of the public.   Tliat matter could very well
wait for a while.   In the meantime
it was necessary that some decision
should be arrived at in reference
to the park,as Mr. Lloyd-Jones' offer
would be withdrawn in two weeks'
Mr. T. W. Stirling openedJ the
discussion. He had no interest,
he said, in the park property, and
Mr. Lloyd-Jones had not asked him
to say anything about it. What he
had tn gay_nQW_w_s entire!y-on his
own. He had heard it said that if
Mr. Lloyd-Jones sold this property
to the city for $29,000 he would be
getting a great price for it. That
was not so. The fact was that Mr.
Jones could sell his property right
away for $30,000, showing that'he
was giving the city the benefit of
at least $1000. Mr. Stirling had
made some calculations which"he
read to the meeting showing that
a portion of the property if divided
up-into lots and good roads made
would sell for more than the total
cost of the land, thus giving Kelowna-a park which would practically cost the ratepayers nothing,
and be no charge on the city at all.
> Mr.' Parkinson advocated the
purchase of the park as an asset to
the City./ Kelowna, he said, was
already a beautiful place, and a
place that enjoyed a considerable
reputation on account of its surroundings. -It should do alL it
could to add to its attractions,
.especially when this land was offered at such a bargain.' It was
clear that'the whole of the land
would not be needed as a' public
park, and Mr. Stirling's suggestions
might be adopted, thus making the
property pay for itself. If ' walks
were laid out to advantage, and
the best of the timber.left standing,
the park might be made to, rival
those of any, other "city.   >
Mr., Elliott said he was not looking at this park from a real estate
pointof view, but was looking at it
as a park for the city, not only a
part, but all of it In a few years
it might all be needed.   He did
not approve of selling any part of
it. The City was surely big enough
to raise sufficient to pay the interest on the contemplated loan. He
thought it advisable to keep it for
the city and free for everyone.   -
Mr. Ball adopted Mr. Elliott's
view. It would not be wise for the
Council to commit itself to any
particular line of action. It had
been clearly pointed out that the
city was in need of the property,
and the council had asked for
power to raise the necessary
amount because they thought that
the citizens would be willing to go
this far.
It was suggested that ex-mayor
Sutherland as head of the late
council should give his views on
the matter. Mr. Sutherland said
they had not taken the matter up
as a council but that he had gone
into the matter at various times
with Mr. Jones and'was very much
in'favour of purchasing the park.
He went into considerable detail
as to the financial aspect^ of. the
question. < f ,, f
Regarding the other by-laws,
continued Mr!. Sutherland,'"there
had been a lot of critism of the
late council. Although he did not
mind'fair citicism^ Mr. Sutherland
did not like what was untruthful.
That was what he took exception
to. He did' not 'blame the new
council. There was a' tendency
on the,public to .blame someone,
whether with reason or not. .Coming to the financial, statement, Mr.
Sutherland explained it fully to all,
showing how the 'apparent decfiit
of $ 16,000 was made up.«
' The liabilities consist of the loans
borrowed by the city from time to
time.' On the assets side we find
the municipal plant, fire' hall, etc.,
but the money that had been spent
on roads, sidewalks, etc., did not
appear. The chief point that Mr.
Sutherland wished. to emphasize
was that the city did not place the
money spent on street improvements etc., on the assets side of the
balance sheet as is done in other
cities, altho' the' said sums were
charged to the expenditures. These
Iiabilites also cover'the whole time
that the city had been in existence.
Ex=Msyor Sutherland felt considerably annoyed that certain parties
had made capital of the apparent
deficit, to make it look as tho the
council -had squandered this
amount when all the time it was
simply a matter of bookkeeping.
The report also, continued Mr.
Sutherland, had ,got.around that
the late Council had paid the City
Engineer $3,200, which was absolutely ,without foundation. If the
matter was looked up in the statement as appeared in the > papers,
the public would have found this
to be about half. The engineer's
services were obtained*at a lower
rate than in most towns, and all the
thanks the council,got was a .certain type of people lying about the
amounts. "I like and invite fair
criticism," said Mr. Sutherland,
"but I wish people could be honest
about it",
* The applause with which Mr.
Sutherland's,,statements were received by the , audience showed
that he had the sympathy and con-;
fidence of the citizens. „ Mr. Sutherland spoke feelingly of the lack
of appreciation of the work of himself and his council for the, city,
and was very clear and, fair over
the the matter of the $2000 deficit
on the late council's general account. He admited that the .council had no right to show that, and
accepted the blame, but in explaining the reason for this deficit,..won
the unstinted approval of the meeting, for it showed a true grasp of
the city's, interests by, the late council* 1     < .' .      ,        ' '*   r
One of the reasons   was   the
opening of Harvey avenue. At
almost every public meeting this
matter was brought up. There was.
at the time only one road east and'
west, and it was the general wish
of the public to have this made.
The council were unanimous in
putting this road thro even in face
of a deficit at the end of the year.'
Then as regards the matter of
grants, the council-"granted the
Board of Trade $250, which was
put to good use/ The board'was
enabled to send an exhibit to Calgary as well as to Spokane, bring- "
ing the town into prominence.
There was no one who would .
say that this , grant was wasted, in
face of the achievements of the
city at those fairs. "Did we do
right or did we do wrong?" asked
the ex-mayor. "Right, quite-right,"
came back from the audience...
With regard to the needr of .borrowing more money for the electric
light plant, Mr. Sutherland went
into this at some-length, and showed how the growth of the city demanded a bigger plant than was
originally intended, and ; indeed,-
there was every indication that a
larger one would be' necessary
in a year or so. '     '"      '
Several tilts between Mayor De
Hart and Mr. Stirling took place in
connection with an item ,$4600,
which in the statement published
by Mayor DeHart was 'shown as
spent on! roads -and 'sidewalks.
These matters were gone, into extensively. - •,     v -     «-,-.-

were so anxious to find fault with tKe   old.

tame work, and in sucK-and able   manner
as has been done.   "It cornes'with a' very
poor grace from the ratepayers' to  try 'toy'

thanked the Council in a  stirring  speech,
which, by the hearty  applause* rendered/ *

of the meeting.   The enthusiam displayed  '<

which was not coming to them.   Municipal1 -

had been criticised. The law held the city-
liable for accidents caused , by defective {
roads and sidewalks. This was not realized

to them, but the WQrk was done well.   JHc ■
urged  the  passing of all  three by-laws. -

of the 23rd January. The "Advertiser," goes on to say that this issue
contains a half sheet advertisement
of one W. J. Kerr, of New Westminster, calling attention to the
Peach Vale Addition fruit farms
right on the Fraser river, the sale
of which commenced on the 26th
Jan. Two cuts of farms in this
advertisement represent "Ideal
fruit land," and the other "The
riches of soil." The former is the
Hales farm at Pleasant Valley,
Spallumcheen and the latter the
E. R. Burnett celery farm. The
"Advertiser," also quotes these
words, which appear at the end of
the advertisement:—
My guarantee, if after seeing this
property you do not find it satisfactory to you, and exactly as represented herein, your money will
be cheerfully refunded. Remember on receiving your wire I will
personally select your farm, and
will guarantee that it will be the
best of the unsold property. W. J.
This is another instance such as
we published last week, where cuts
from one district are used to ad
vertise another, and is a matter
that might well be dealt with by
the Board of Trade.
It is pleasing to note the action
of our new council, in taking immediate steps to form a fire brigade.
Whatever the outcome of- the
meeting next Monday may be, we
are assured that the council will do
all in its power to assist in forming
and maintaining an efficient force.
The matter was brought up in
council by Mr. E. R. Bailey, one
of Kelowna's oldest residents, and
whose opinion of the need of this
institution, must carry weight.
He was warmly supported by every
member of the council, and the
business men of the City are all in
favor. Every citizen is urged to
attend the general meeting called
to discuss this matter, and arrive
at some determination. Bring
some information and suggestions
with you. This is a matter that
affects all, and any day might see
one or other of our large business
houses in flames. As long as Kelowna is without a first-class fire
brigade, it will be a reproach to the
town and a stigma on the citizens.
The perhaps undue prominence
given in our last issue   to  a  telephone  message  of  the    Rev.   F.
Wilbur   Jones, 'secretary   of    the
British and Foreign Bible Society,
has called forth quite a deluge of
indignant correspondence from the
local  advocates  of  Socialism, including a challenge to mortal combat in Raymer's Hall  from  one
sterling supporter   of   the   cause.
The correspondence reminds   us
strangely of the old story of „ie!wo
knights who met at a point where
a shield overhung their path.    One
declared the shield was a gold one,
while the other was equally sure it
was silver.   The matter was hotly
debated.   A quarrel arose, and a
deadly battle ensued, after which
it was discovered that the shield
was gold on one side and silver on
the other.
A good deal depends upon the
' ~  point of view.   Against the Christian Socialism advocated   by   Dr.
Clifford and by our correspondents,

The fruit growers of this Province have now the chance of
effecting a decided stroke in their
own interests, by supporting the
candidature of Mr. John'D. Hunt
for the position on the Board of
Railway Commissioners, made vacant by the late Hon. Thos. Green-
way's death. This gentleman's
appointment is receiving the
hearty endorsation of municipal
councils and grain growers of his
own Province, Manitoba, which
alone speaks well.
But Mr. Hunt is furthermore
closely identified with the fruit industry in British Columbia, and is
a large holder of fruit lands in the
Keremeos district. In this connection he is familiar with fruit growers' grievances and requirements,
and understanding as he does the
need of adequate transportation, is
about the best qualified man for
the position.
Mr. Hunt's training as a lawyer,
his personal interest in the development of the fruit industry in this
Province, and the confidence reposed in him by both grain and
fruit growers, eminently fits him
for the position to which his qualifications entitle him.
necessary by force." Mr Jones does not
mention the name of the Socialist paper he
quotes, but we will assume that he actually
did see the above statement in a Socialist
paper (because the writer has known
Socialists, as well as Liberals and Conservatives who were Atheists). In mentioning
the matter at all, Mr. Jones shows he is
making the same mistake that many people
make whose knowledge of Socialism has
been acquired from anti-Socialist publications, that is, that Socialism is an anti-
rehgious movement. Now if people were
to form their opinion about the British and
Foreign Bible Society as Mr. Jones forms
his about Socialism, no sane man would
pay any more attention to his opinion than
he would to the tramp who forms his
opinion about soap from the abominable
smell of a soap works which disturbs his
nostrils while taking his mid-day siesta in
the shade of a hay-stack in a neighbouring
It is refreshing to turn from the remarks
of Mr. Jones to a recent publication by the
Rev. Dr. Clifford, of London, England, entitled " Socialism and the Churches." Dr.
Clifford is one of the leading lights of the
Baptist denomination in England to-day.
He is a man of nous and vim as well as"
deep piety, and he has studied Socialism.
Dr. Clifford says: " The civilized world is
gradually making room for the Socialist
movement. Bit by bit, inch by inch, the
social conscience grows. Quietly and
slowly, but inevitably, the sway of the sense
of social duty rises and rules so that this
twentieth century is sure to be the century
of a conquering and beneficent Socialism.
The fact is, and this is what I want to show,
this is the plan of God. Socialism is the
soul of it, is divine.    It is of God."
There are hundreds of ministers of the
gospel in England and Amenca who would
gladly say " amen " to the above statement
of Dr. Clifford, and there are at two least in
this city of Kelowna who 1 think will endorse Dr. Clifford's utterance. The writer
is a Socialist because he is'a Christian. He
was driven to Socialism by the close study
of the teaching of Jesus Christ, which he
found to be incompatible with the beastly
struggle for existence due to the competitive system of to-day.
Mr. Jones warns the people of Kelowna
"to take note of the insidious beginnings of
this work in their midst, and to decide for
themselves if they will countenance it."
The people of Kelowna will certainly decide for themselves without Mr. Jones
warning them. If they countenance Socialism they will come and join us; if they
don't, well they will just stay away, that's
Mr. Jones is wrong, however, in referring
to the "insidious " beginnings of our work.
There is nothing insidious about it. We
hod a notice in the paper two weeks before
our first meeting was held. We published
bills and scattered them as broadly as we
knew how. Ladies and gentlemen were
invited, and will always be welcome at our
meeting, due notice will be given from
time to time. We are in the political arena
for war. We are out to preach and proclaim our rebellious gospel from the housetops. ;

Guillotine'at Work in France.^
A' public execution of a most revolting
nature took place in France, at the' little
town of Bethune. It was understood
about two years ago, that the death penalty
would not again be inflicted, but the increase of murders following the intimation
that the knife would be abolished, forced

As soon as it became known that the
guillotine was to be used again, immense
crowds flocked to the little town, to witness the degrading spectacle, and to celebrate the execution of the victims, four
. Each time the knife fell beheading its
prey, the" populace went wild with excitement, hissing and shouting abuse.
The feeling of revulsiCn at the public
execution has already led to a demand
that the death punishment shall in future
be carried out privately as in England,
and a new law governing such executions
will shortly be outlined.

The Editor, Orchard City Record,
Sir,—In your issue of the 29th inst, I saw
a statement made by one F. Wilbur Jones
y.- -
that it is the aim of socialism and socialists
in general to crush Christianity.   If I could
believe such a statement to be true I would
not be a socialist for two minutes, but I
know it is very far from the truth.   I have
read everything I could find touching on
socialism for the past ten or twelve years,
and I never yet came across anything that
would  warrant such a statement   I defy
Mr. Jones or anyone else to produce from
any authority on socialism anything that
will  prove   him correct.   The fact of the
matter  is  that  all  socialists  believe that
Christ himself was a socialist, and the first
socialist on earth.    What socialists  really
want is more Christianity and not less, and
practiced in our everyday life.   Socialists
know better than anyone else that Christianity was always right, is right now, and
always  will  be' right, and  could   not be'
wrong.   But we have not got it—it is the
only thing we want, and when Christianity
comes all other good things will come with
it.   Socialism is purely political and has
nothing' whatever   to   do   with   religion.
There are men and women in the socialist
ranks of every creed, from bishops down,
but their religious beliefs are never questioned.     Socialism  is growing the world
over, and it will grow in Kelowna, and is
growing in spite of anything Mr. Jones can
do to hurt it. '
Respectfully yours,     ' x _

The Editor, Orchard City Record,
Dear Sir.
You seem to have extended editorial
sympathy to a distressed Christian seeking
to unburden himself of his horror at one
of those wicked Socialists. Perhaps I may
add further comfort.
Probably the Christians and moderns
might both leam much from a survey of
both past and present movements and the
parallels to be found between them. Perhaps your Biblist friend may not know that
there are quite as many, perhaps more,
earnest Christians in the Socialist move-'
ment than theie are strenuous denouncers
of representative Christianity. In the same
wayrchere were widely divergent positions
taken up within the early Christian movement ; and while James, first' bishop of
Jerusalem could put such vehemently Socialist feeling into a letter (note the fierce
cry of " Weep and howl, ye rich, for your
miseries that are coming upon you ") that
equally inflammatory language Jrom _
Socialist platform today might easily lead
to imprisonment even in our more tolerant
countries, Paul supported property, and
even property in slaves, in a gentlemanly
sort of way. | believe most moderns,
whether of the Socialist or other persuasions,
would desire to speak gently of the older
movement in its old age. That same indulgence is also due to any zealous
Socialist who forgets the aspirations of the
earlier Christians in his horror at the later
doings of the Church which < claims to
represent Christianity. For the Church, as
soon as relieved of outside persecution, at
once began persecution On its own account,
and its cruelty increased through the centuries, unsatiated by the annual thousands
of heretics,and "witches" which it burnt
to death at the stake, till it began to declare
burning too easy a death, arid blessed those
wh.o invented more lingering tortures.'And
its greed of wealth and power kept pace
with its cruelty/ Even-down tcour own
day it has steadily opposed all great movements for mercy and- freedom, and persecuted men of science,
„ Mr. Jones seems much afraid of "insidious
beginnings," but a zealot's proposal to "put
down Christianity ". (which he managed to
pick out of some Socialist paper) is'scarcely insidious, nor is he • likely to find this
Word appropriate if he makes further
acquaintance with Socialists.

Army And Cicilian Bandsmen.
Mr. Haldane's letter^ in which he promised that Army bandsmen should not compete on unfair terms with civilians, has not
satisfied the Parliamentary Committee of
the Trades Union ^Congress. _ Another
letter has accordingly been sent to Mr.
Haldane, in which his statement that in a
certain'case £100 per week was paid for a
band of thirty-five performers is questioned,
But even if it were, say'the trade unionists, at the price paid the Army bandsmen
are themselves underpaid, , They have to
go where they are ordered, and no bandsmen has any voice as to the amount he
shall receive, so that in all probability
some of them do not get even the trade
union rates, the result being, that even at
the rates named, the Army bandsmen are
said to be competing unfairly with civilians. '   '

Cromer Dotcn on Suffragettes.
Lord Cromer is about to take an active
part in the campaign  against Miss  Park-
hurst and her mob. He has accepted the
presidency of the newly formed Men's
League for opposing woman Suffrage, and
will open fire on the feminine enemy at a
great meeting to be held at Queen's Hall.
This great statesman makes a clear
sweep, and says he would not only object
to see women in parliament, but would
debar them permanently from the right of
parliamentary franchise, as he believes
politics is not the proper sphere for women, and her influence, if. exerted, in that
direction would not be for the national
good.   .   ,

W. R. Trotter, Canadian labor representative in London, protested last Friday to
the Labor party's conference''against- the
Salvation Army's immigration operations.
He said that if any one started a competition as to the best way to prevaricate, the
Salvation Army's emigration programme
1909 would: obtain first prize/. (Laughter.)'
He said every statement made by the
Salvation Army crucified the truth of the
Carpenter of Nazareth, and placed Ananias '
on a pedestal. There were many thousand of unemployed in Canada, yet the
Salvation Army proposed to send 80,000
people there. <*
Tired Operators and Train Wrecks
Telegraph operators throughout the
prairie province on all lines, are signing a
monster petition to parliament for an eight
hour law. The preamble declares that
many wrecks are due to the fact that operators are overworked. Where only one
man is employed at a station he is practically on duty all the time.

feature of Fry's evidence waa that he

The annual meeting of the Presbyterian
congregation was held in Knox church on
Wednesday night. There was a very large
number present of members and adherents.
Reports of the various societies were
read and found interesting. All showed
financial balance* on the right side. .
The matter of a proposed new church
was discussed at length, and finally left to
a committee composed of the session
Managers and others selected. The plan
that found most favor with the great majority was the project to erect a $15,000 "or
$20,000 solid brick structure on the corner
lot of the church property. This to be
finished by autumn of the present year.
The annual meeting of the Ladies' Aid
of Knox Church, met on Wednesday afternoon for the election of officers for the ensiling year, and the following were elected:
President, , Mrs. Hardy.
Vice-Pres.,    Mrs. Jas. Harvey.
Secretary,    Mrs. MacTavish. __y

The debate at the school house on
Tuesday last proved to be a difficult task
to handle, the subject being the divorce
question. On account of the religious
principle of the speakers, it was difficult to
treat the question properly without giving
offence to some lady, and as either religion
or politics are not to be discussed at those
debates which are intended chiefly for
amusement, the speakers soon found themselves to be treading on dangerous ground.
"However, good humor prevailed throughout the whole entertainment and decision
was given against divorce, by -Messrs.
Montford and Caza, judges. A nice programme of songs and short anecdotes followed and a very enjoyable time was
spent. Those taking part in the above
were Mr. and Miss Ross, Mrs. Hereron,
Miss Berarde, Mr. Berarde, Mr. Casorso,
Mrs. Wilcock, Mr. Manning, Mr. Carney,
Mr. Hereron, Mr. Mainse and the Misses

Dr.'C. A. Clinton of the San Francisco
Board of Education has made a special
study of the effects of cigarette smoking
among the public .school children of that
city and expressed himself in the following
unmistakeable language. " A good deal
has been said about the evils of cigarette
smoking, but one-half the truth has never
been told. I have watched this thing fo_a
long time and I ;say calmly and deliberately
that 1 believe cigarette smoking is as bad a
habit ,a8 opium smoking. I am talking
now of boys, remember. The effect upon
grown men is of course not so marked. A
cigarette fiend will lie and steal just as a
morphine or opium fiend will lie or steal.
Cigarette smoking blunts the whole moral
nature.' It has an appaling effect upon the
system. It first stimulates and then stupifies
the nerves. . It sends boys into consumption
It gives them enlargement of the heart and
sends them to the insane asylum. I am
physician to several boys' schools and 1 am
often called in to prescribe for palpitation
of the heart. In nine cases but of ten it is
caused by the cigarette habit.
Every physician knows the cigarette
heart. I have seen brighTb-yTfurne-ihto
dunces and straight-forward honest boys
made into miserable cowards by cigarette
smoking. I am not exaggerating, I am telling the truth, that, every physician and
nearly every teacher knows,"   .
Leaders at Ottawa - have agreed that
Canada is at a disadvantage in the matter
of treaties with . the United States. Mr.
Borden objected to the publishing in the
United States of the details of important
treaties affecting Canada, the same privilege
being withheld from the Dominion parliament until the assent of Downing street
was given to publication. There- should
be simultaneous publication.      ..
Sir Wilfrid Laurier said that he could
not controvert Mr. Borden's statement.'
Undoubtedly the present arrangement was
inconvenient. It followed the traditions, of
British diplomacy, and he admitted that a
change was desirable;
Mr. Borden went a step further and said
that no treaty affecting Canada should be
binding until ratified by the parliament of
the Dominion.
Hon. Mr. Pugsley announced that .hereafter all tenders received by  the  government would be opened in'the presence of
the minister'of the department and one of
his officials/ " '""

A second sitting of the City
Council _ook place" last Monday,
with Mayor DeHart in the chair.
Present, Aldermen ^Elliott, ~Row-
clilte, Bailey, Cox and Ball.
The minutes of the 'proceeding
meeting were read' and adopted,
and the following correspondence
A letter from E. W. Hall stating
that he had inspected 101 electric
light installations up to 30th January, and that he found them in
order in every case. As he was
leaving the city shortly, Mr. Hall
tendered his resignation. ^
A letter from city engineer Russel, recommending a rate for power service be based on a sliding
scale, and submitting such a rate
before the council.
A letter from F. J. Fulton, Chief
Commissioner of lands, stating that
he understood that the municipality
desired to have incorporated in the
Water Clauses Act, a provision
giving municipalities control over
the distribution of irrigation water
within their corporated limits, and
asking the council to 'advance their
reasons for such a provision, .and
immediate attention would be
A letter from M. J. Monckton, in
reference to the Carnegie library,
and urging the council to use their
best endeavours in making arrangements with Mr. Carnegie. As word
had been received from Mr. Carnegie's representative at last council, and the matter was being dealt
with, Mr. Monckton's letter was
laid aside.
A letter from a Mrs. L. B. Harlow,
enquiring if there was an opening
for a kindergarten school in the
city. . -
The matter of the city sanitary
arrangements was again brought
up for discussion, and the 'council
determined to enforce the existing
by-laws referring to the removal of
refuse. In discussing the scavenger's services, it was mentioned
that these services would be facilitated if -citizens would comply
with the Health By-law. "And
why is not this" by-law enforced,"
asked an indignant aldermen, who
thought that all offenders should
be treated as such. The' law in
question, among other provisions
calls, for all privies to be fitted with
galvanized iron drawers, or metal
lined watertight' wooden drawers,
and investigation showed /that the
city council, with' his Worship the
Mayor included, are all - offenders.
They intend, however to enforce
this law just as soon^as they are
able to get fixed up themselves.   -
By-law No. 56, to authorize the
raising of a sum of money for the
purchase of the A. &' T. Association grounds was read for the first

1 don't think" 1 told ye that our schule
isn't the Dry Valley Schule "enymore.
We've .'ad a krisnin party. Ye see the
boys kinder thought it looked like a~pro-
hibition schule bein' dry_and they didn't
want any rong impressions to git round so
they called a meetin*.
It was kwite a big meetin and o' course
the press was to it, that's me. There was
a lively debate about what to call the
schule. Old man McKinley he ups and
sed he thought it oughter be called after
some grate man and sujested the late
President McKinley. He pinted out that
o' coorse he was no relashum o' his but he
just thought the McKinley schule would
sound fine and would carry down to prosperity the name oi that dowty President.
Nobody secunded him.
Then Old man Bowers he up and sed if
they called it the McKinley schule fokes
might think it was being called after old
man McKinley. He thought this 'was a
grand objeckshun. He sed it oughten^to
be called after any man, but there was
plenty o' good names o' streets & sech like
that had a more felutin sound so to speak.
He said there wus a fashnable seckshun in
New York called the Bowery and he proposed that it be called the Bowery Schule
and backed up his argument by showing
that thesschule was Bowery enough anyway seein there was ten Bowers kid at-
tendin' to it.    Nobody secunded him.
Then Eccleston he up and sed he 'ad
'ad a wide experyunce in the pianner bizness back East and met with all kinds o'
people in the stores & in conversashun he
learned thet there was a rooral schule back
East called the Eccleston Sctiule and it
tickled his fancy soens 'c 'card- il Se <'e
ses wats' the matter with cal'in it the Eccleston Schule same as they did back East
were the wise men came from. This was
a powerful argyment & appealed to his
brother espeshly, but nodody didn't
secund 'im.
Then things got lively & after the ink
pots got to flying around the room fur 'arf
an 'our, I ses to meself there's goin' to be
a row 'ere I se». Jist then Bowers he ups
& ordered the-press representatives to be
put out wile they diskussed the matter
within sealed doors, so'out I shot. After
five 'ours deliberashun I was informed that
they 'ad decided on callin the schule Pine
Grove. That name is now dooly' registerd
at the Eddikashun Offis.

Incidents That Greatly Surprised «
Visitor From Germany.
On his Qrst visit to the Unit _i
States a German manufacturer whs
the guest of a kinsman in New York.
lie expressed surprise when, a few
days after his arrival, he saw a number of men help /themselves to papers
at an unattended newsstand, where
some men laid down the exact price
of their purchase, others made change
for themselves and still others walked
away without paying. He was told
that the last named'group were customers who paid only once a week, but
that no one ever failed to pay.
To demonstrate his contention that
"most people are honest In this country" the Americanized German took
liis visitor that day to a restaurant
where both were unknown, and when
I hoy had finished their luncheon the
host went to the cashier's desk with
his check and said he had no money
with him, but would pay the next
The cashier gave the couple a hasty
glance and said, "All right; I'll take a
chnnce," and the men started for the
street. At the door a right about race
movement was executed, the check was
paid, a good cigar was handed to the
cashier, to whom the plot was revealed, and the German exclaimed,
"Grossartlg!"   (magnificent).
Ceylon White Ants and Their Numerous Natural Enemies.
It is estimated that two-thirds of tht
island of Ceylon Is undermined by
white ants. The number of. these insects is certainly quite Incalculable, but
it is fortunate, that their natural enemies are almost as numerous.
The workers are preyed upon by true
nuts and many other Insects; by spiders, lizards and centipede; by rats,
mice and palm squirrels. __ But it .is
the adult winged Insects that are especially victimized. It Is probable tint
scarcely 1 per cent of the mature lu-
.-.ects survive the dangers of the pts-
'.iodic fights.
They run the gantlet of nearly every other animal. Birds, bats, squirrels, rats, toads and lizards all Hock
io the feast. Dogs and cats eat the
vhiged ants with avidity.
"Hven man himself does not disdain
'o participate," says B. B. Green. "The
Tamil cooly looks upon a mess of
tilcd termites as a great dainty, and I
have several European acquaintances
who consider- that termites on toast
form a dish worthy of more general
inclusion In the menu. They-are-said
to taste not unlike mushrooms."—Agricultural Journal of Ceylon Botanic
The Warning Signals.
A Boston physician tells a story of a
youngster of his own that an o-»er-
strenuous vacation bad pnt on tbe sick
list. The father had An appropriate
prescription filled and left the bottle
with the child's mother. As she, bow-
ever, is very forgetful, he'gave her a
chart and suggested that she set down
thi' hours when tbe medicine should
be given, checking off each' dose, as
taken. Upon returning from his evening calls, however, he found the chart
blank.    ~ '   ■
"Good gracious, Mary!" he exclaimed. "Surely you haven't' failed to give
Tom his medicine?"
"Oh, no I did not miss a slngle
lime," his wife assured him.
"How In the world did you remember It without tho chart?" he asked. .-
She smiled.
"That,was easy. I just told Tom
this morning at what hours he was to
have it. and half an hour before each
time he would begin hallooing that he
wouldn't take it."
The French Are Good Travelers.
Tho French on their travels nrc tho
very reverse of the English. Imper-
and without the slightest effort' as a
mere matter of course, make the best
of everything. I have made journeys
with many French friends of both
sexes, young, middle uged and elderly,
often in out of the way places meeting with discomforts enough. Nothing
rii(lies their temper. .Pleased to enjoy fresh sct-OH with a genial companion, they extract the utmost possible pleasure from every incident even
