[eetingof the
City Council
A meeting of the  city  council
Svas  held  on   Tuesday  last,   the
^Vlayor and  Aldermen  Rowcliffe,
jpall, Cox and Bailey being present.
f   The   minutes   of   the   previous
general   meeting were  read  and
adopted and also  the  minutes  of
[he Court of Revision held  during
he morning.
|v .Messrs.  Marty   were   the   only
[•'persons who obtained a reduction
n their assessments and  a  long
(*.nd  varied  discussion  was gone
nto.    It was however  decided to
pass the minutes of the  court of
revision as read.
A letter was next read from Mr.
;<C. Blackwood asking for connection with the water system. Also
f|from W. R. Megaw of Vernon,
Bwho asked'for advises re the shipment of road making materials.
ji(He pointed out that the city oi
JVernon were about to make a large
fishipment, and asked Kelowna if
£they wanted to buy anything in the
jiroad improvement line, if so perhaps they could include their order
in the car and so save expense.
The question of a scavenger
waggon was brought up at this
point, but it was decided to let the
matter drop pending the new stock
to be shewn at the show at Seattle.
' A letter was also received ,from
Oskar Tress offering his team for
sale at the price of $550, including
wagon racks, etc. ..-•-'
The   question  was  left  in  the
hands of  Mr. Elliott to  report at
next meeting.   It was However" decided  to  make   further   arrangements  with  Mr. Lldyd-Jbhes£- and
* to go into  his «plan  of buying a
\ team and  selling it ..back during
" the winter months."
Sealed tenders for the sidewalks
on Bernard Avenue were opened.
Mr. Chas. Clement tendered  23|c.
per sq. ft for the  north side  and'
2 lie. per sq. ft. for the south side.
^Mr. Clement, also  made  a- reduc-
. tion of one half a cent less  if the
,if whole - business   was   put in  his
hands   The only other tender was
from J. L. Wilson who quoted  for'
the north side  24c. per .sq.  toot
and for the south side 26c. per sq.
foot • Some  discussion  arose  on
the previous work done on  the
cement sidewalks.
The Mayor .thought that by
letting the tender out a great relief
would come to the Board of Works.
. Aid. Cox thought that the machine mixing was far and away
ahead of the hand mixing and
Mr. Clement had this plant He
ing as a good solid base and plenty of sand pounded in was his
idea of a good sidewalk.
It was finally decided to forge
ahead' with the work as much
more had to be done, and to let
the tender to Mr. Clement, he
would then be responsible. It was
at the same time agreed to let the
contractor.use the city's water'.-free
of charge.   -   - -
Mayor" DeHart said that he had
obtained a book giving the report
of the Vancouver City Council,
and would suggest that the'Aldermen look through it and see what
! Vancouver were spending for their
improvements in comparison with
.Kelowna.'"'.-. .    . ."'"' ;■
The  removal  of  the; sidewalk
along Bernard Avenue was next
suggested.     Aid; 'Bailey pointed
out; that in placing them: down
ir'water street no consideration had
1 been   taken  of the  distance be-
[ 'tween, the: telegraph'. poles and the
'aide of the lots. 7
'   The present sidewalk was about
seven foot in breadth,  and  there
was. only about four foot down
r Water Street.7 Jt -was decided vto
leave the matter in the hands'of
Aid; Bailey, and to let him   make
arrangements accordingly.
Some little discussion arose
about the change of the meeting
days from Monday to Tuesday
Aid. Ball informed the .council
that Aid. Elliott was unable to attend on Tuesdays and would like
the council to   meet   on   Mondays
as before.
The Mayor explained that the
meetings had been changed during the last two weeks, owing to
Victoria Day falling on a Monday
and the present meeting was called
so as to be directly after the Court
of Revision. Next week, he suggested they return to their usual
A discussion arose about the
band, and it ■ was suggested that
they should be paid $25 a month.
Mr. Ball pointed out that a large
and influential committee belonged to the band, not a band committee but -a citzen's committee.
He had approached this committee
and had found that they were not
in debt except for the band master's salary. They would be ready
to play in public the first week in
June, and had already accepted
an offer to-go to Penticton on the
1st of July at a fee of $75. He
also pointed out that the A. & T,
owe $100 and that together , with
the grant of $ 1 75 in July, being 7
month's salary and $25 a month
after ought to put them .on a good
The council agreed to grant the
sums mentioned. The Mayor at
the same time pointing out that the
band stand to be erected in the
park should be included in the
plans. He thought a presentable
band stand could be built for from
$200 to $250. *
— Mr/Chaplin attended and asked
what the council proposed, doing
in respect to the, fire on .Harvey
Avenue. He contended that there
was no need to tear up the sidewalk, as the fire brigade did. Mr.
Thompson and McTavish who
were helping him to put out the
fire, had the whole matter under
control when the fire brigade came
up. He did not think the damage
done by the fire was' very much,
it was more, the damage done by
the fire brigade..
The Mayor told Mr. Chaplin that
the matter was having the attention
of the council, and that he had'no
cause to fear any action being taken in the matter. Mr. Chaplin
wished to explain that no liability
rested on Mr. T. Morrison, as he
did not autorise the fire to be started, as far as compensation for damage, neither he nor Mr. Morrison
had been approached on the subject-;   *    :
The matter was allowed to drop
at this juncture and. the tenders
put before the council. Two
painters, one for painting all except the roof for $53.00, another
$ 70.00. The tender was awarded
to Messrs. Edwards Ac Finch at the
first named sum.
A report was asked for in respect to Mr. A. L. Meugens and
the cause of the accident reported
at last meeting.
Aid. Cox explained that the
matter was having attention but
that the committee were unable to
report at that meeting.
Tenders' were next read from
Mr. H. W. Raymer for the removing of, the A. fie T. building and
fences: It was decided to accept
the. tender for $ 175; for.: removing
the building; but the fences would
be undertaken by the council who
already had men working in conjunction with \ Messrs. Crowley ;■ fit
Buckland. .•.:■'. ■.'■.-..
It was decided to call for tenders
for" gravelling Glen Avenue, from
Richter Street to Ethel Street. The
gravel to be used from Harvey's
gravel pit.
The followingaccounts were referred to the, finance committee.

Some little discussion arose
about the bill presented by Mr.
Samson, the charge appearing to
be more than was agreed upon.
Mr. Samson had charged for three
men watering the street at $20
each, while provision had only
been made fov two men.
The matter was finally left in the
hands of the finance committee to
pay if found correct.
The city clerk explained that he
had not had occasion before to
ask for help but with the assessment roll now on hand and other
important business he was unable
to see his way clear to do all the
work, he wished for some help.
He was instructed to obtain
same as soon as passible.
The clerk also wished to inform
the council that the blue prints
showing the plans for the park
were issued, and that he had had
applications from Vancouver, Penticton and Vernon, for the plans..
The Mayor suggested that swing
chairs and other necessary articles
ought to be considered in laying
out the park.
The location of the water
trough was next put before-the
Aid. Cox remarked that the committee
had agreed to place it between the Palace
Hotel and the Keller Block. It was agreed
that it woutd be better to get the sidewalks
laid down first and then place the trough
right up against the sidewalk.
The committee for inspecting the Chinese
quarters gave a very favourable report, it
being shown that some dwellings of the
white man were in a worse state than
those, in the Chinese quarters. "
'■■ Mr. Cox asked the council what they
thought of building a Pest House .in the
city. He showed that an outbreak of
scarlet fever or any disease would be very
disastrous without a house of that description. The Mayor thought it was unnecessary as a tent could easily be erected, and
-fterwards burned in the case of a veiy
contageous disease nursed in its vicinity.
Some little disenssion arose on the question of letting the power house run during
the afternoon, to allow people who use
electric sad irons, and water pumps, lo
make use of the current. It was decided
not to take further steps in the matter, the
pumping by this plan was not in vogue.
The Mayor pointed out that the current
was put on soon after 7 o'clock and very
Little more could be done at present.
The following motions were passed:
-   Ball-Cox—That   the   lender  of  H.  W.
Raymer for the removal ot the Exhibition
building'be referred to the Board of Works
and they to. have power to act.
Rowcliffe-Bailey—That Aid. Ball and
the city clerk be instructed to secure temporary assistance for the council work
during .the busy months.
Disastrous  Fire Completely
Destroys New Building
Bailey-Ball—That Mr. Clement's cheque
for $100 deposit as guarantee for the satisfactory work'on the cement sidewalks on
the south side of Bernard Avenue from
Pendozi Street to Water Street, be returned to, him on condition'that the defects on
the surface be remedied to the satisfaction
of the Board of Works.       .
The council then adjourned to meet
again on Monday, June 6th, at 7:39- p.m.
Mr. T. Morrison has asked us
to state that there is no truth in the
statements as reported at the council meeting and in the press last
week, with reference to the damage by fire done to the sidewalk
on Harvey Avenue. It was put
forward that both Mr. Chaplin and
Mr. Morrison had been approached with reference to making good
the. damage done, but Mr. Morrison
refused to admit a claim. He now
wishes us to state that he never
was approached on the subject of
payment, neither did he J give the
matter a thought at the time. He
did not instruct Mr. Chaplin to start
a fire, having told him  to  dig  a
.     , .      ..       ... ,    .pumping   plant which stood  the
narrow strip along the side of the j WOrst of the heat will it is expected
A disastrous fire occurred this
morning at about twelve thirty.
The power house," on which our
electric light and water supply depends, being completely gutted.
The alarm was given directly from
the power house and before many
minutes had elapsed the fire hose
was out of the fire station manned
by Messrs. Butt, Hidson, Cowen
and Wade. Several others joined
the reel on Main Street but on. arrival at the scene of action it was
found impossible to use the hose
owing to the pumping arrangements in the power house being
out of action. The engine was
immediately sent for and on arrival refused to do the work it was
commissioned to do owing to a
broken valve. The engineer was
away from town, and consequently
some difficulty was experienced
in starting the engine, and when
started it was found to be defective.
The only way to save the adjoining
buildings was to form a bucket
brigade.this was immediately done,
and water was poured round the
building to- Save any spread.
Luckily the wind was blowing the
flames towards the lake, and the
chance of saving the adjoining
property was increased.
By this time a big crowd,
arotised by the. alarm had congregated, many stood by and watched
with wonder the fierce .flames as
they attacked the frame of the
building. The brigade had by
this time arrived and soon s all
possibility of a spread was made
impossible. The forms of T. Hidson and F. Samson was seen ordering the brigade and throwing
water in all directions.
The cause of the fire was the
bursting of the gate of the furnace,
thereby igniting some shavings and
spreading fire with startling rapidity
throught the whole building.
The chief occupant of thepower
house at the time of the outbreak
was Mr. J. S. Crowe, and a conversation with him drew forth the
following information: About
twelve thirty he had finished stoking up, left the furnace closed, and
had gone into the engine room to
attend to the "engines when he
heard a terrific report, he immediately ran to the furnace to see
what was. happening and found
the door had blown out and had
were near by for the purpose of
fireing. He at once saw it was
impossible for him to cope with
the fire, and gave the alarm at
once. Meanwhile he tried to save
the building but was unable to do
so, and had to leave it owing to
the intense heat. The brigade
were unable to battle with the
flames owing to lack of suitable
material and the only possible
thing was to let the structure bum
out and save the sawmill and adjoining property, . .   _
The flames which defied anyone
to approach them, attacked the
landing owned by L. C. Aviss and
did some damage to his property
which was adjacent to the burning
building; Several people present
tried to push the side of the walls
in, arid were soon rewarded with
the desired result. A whole compact mass of wreckage was all
heaped towards the centre, and
danger of any timbers falling outside was relieved.
The building is insured and it is
expected, that it will be a total loss
as thejdynamo and machinery are
practically no good now. The
plant which stood  th
The following people deserve
great commendation for the help
they rendered at the critical moment, Mr. L. C. Aviss who gave
up looking after his own property
and did all in his power to save
the mill, Mr. Thomas Lawson and
Mr. Ball who did excellent work in
keeping the people collected, T.
Hidson who was one of the first
on the scene of action and who
worked until morning, and Mr.
Samson chief of the brigade who
did all in his power to control the
brigade and also risked his life in
his endeavor to prevent the
spreading of the flames.
The water system was reinstated
at 9:30 this morning, by means of a
supplementary pump. The damage
is not so high as was originally estimated. The insurance carried' is

be placed out of action, but until
engineers arrive the exact extent
of the damage will be unknown.
That the estimated damage ia over
and above the insurance there is
no doubt and it will be a few
months before the plant will again
be in working order.
It is definitely settled that Mr.
E. T. Bogart will start up a wood
pipe factory in this locality before
many weeks are out. The arrival
of wood piping on the wharf has
caused no little comment of late,
and Mr. Bogart was prompted by
enormous shipments into this city
to start a factory at this point. The
machinery is all being got in order
for immediate shipment, and although a definate location of the
factory cannot at present be given
it is likely to be fixed within the
next week. "'The factory will be
prepared to turn out all kinds of
pipe from ther.heapest wood irrigation pipe--t__d o_._i-rough log, to
the first class wire-bound pressure
pipe for water systems. A speciality
will be the building of continuous
stave pipes, a feature in which
Mr. Bogart has had great experience
being responsible for the large
continuous stave plant at Keremeos
These pipes will be manufactured
in all sizes and lengths. Mr. Bogart will leave Vancouver in about
a week or ten days, and will start
operations directly he arrives at
this point. He will come amongst
us with eveiy recommendation, as
he assisted largely in the water
works of Vancouver, and will know
the requirements of the general
water arrangements here.
Sports Committee Meet
At a meeting of the sports committee to verify the accounts and
pass cheques, it was moved that a
baiahce~sheet~sh~ouid be- issued-to
show correctly the expenditure of
A vote of thanks was passed to
the Mayor, Starters, Judges, etc.,
for the work they carried out so
successfully, also to the ladies,
Miss Copeland and Mrs. Smith,
who very kindly made the badges
for the occasion.
It was decided to get together a
team to visit Penticton on July 1st,
those desirous of joining were requested to give their names to the
committee. They will be entitled
to use the standards for the jumps,
and hurdles for practice purposes,
upon application to the committee.
Rev. A. W. K. Herdman left
this morning by the boat for Okanagan Landing, in order to meet his
sister, who is arriving this afternoon
from the Orient. Miss Herdman
has been a missionary for many
years in Northern Central India,
and is now home on furlough. She
arrived in Vancouver on Saturday
night by S.S. " Empress of China,"
which was five days late. She visited missions in Japan, Korea, and
other places en route.
Miss Herdman makes a very
short stay in Kelowna at the Manse
as she must leave soon for Calgary
and Toronto.
The  high  water in  the Creek
during the past few days has given
rise to the wildest rumors of burst-
ed dams and prospects of, disastrous floods.     The water, it was
said, was rushing broadcast ever
lands, washing out ranches, and
threatening to envelope the town.
The state of the citizens was rising
to  fever   heat,   but   it   gradually
dropped to normal when the real
facts were brought to town.   The
dam owned by the Centra) Okanagan prove d n investigation to be'
as substantial as ever, but owing
to the recent heavy rains had overflowed.   A broken sluice gate, too,
had  caused  some trouble, and it
was found necessary to turn  the
Water through the main headgate
to  relieve   the   pressure   on   the
weakened part.   As soon as  the
water subsides a little the sluice gate
will  be  repaired.      The   sudden
rising of the creek carried along a
lot of old lumber and debris which
had been lying along its banks, and
no doubt the sight of this coming
down the swollen stream added to
the general excitement.
Mission  Creek   has   also   risen
very high, and  the K.L.O. bridge, -
owing to the sand in which it ,was  ,
built was broken down'and access
to the town  was impeded.     Rumors   W about 'that   the   dam'
above Mr."Pease's ranch' was brok- '
en, but a  conversation with  Mr.i-
Pease drew "the information  that
the dam was as solid  as  a rock,
and he did  not fear any danger
from flood fully believing that the  -
creek was- able to carry all  the^
water likely to be turned into it.   -'.'*

Mr. Pridham can be congratulated on having brought
to the eyes of the council the
fact that some of the potatoes
shipped in this week are infested with the 7 California
Beetle or potato lice.
It will be remembered that
years ago the self-same beetle
was imported into Toronto,
and great damage was done
to the crops.- The war that
raged to rid the country of the
pests was lorig and expensive,
and up to the present the lice
are not • entirely elminated.
Should such a plague strike
our valley it would mean loss
and expense such as has been
experienced away back east.
Should we not have some inspector to pass the various
seeds that come amongst us ?
It was reported that one load
of these potatoes were already
sold, and had not Mr. Pridham
taken the steps he did
the seeds of iniquity
might have been sown
and a long warfare against
these pests started.
It is a pleasure Tto find our
council jhave agreed to fix up
our band on a good solid basis.
It is certaiinly an awkward po
sition to be placed in, for a city
to be without a band. Take
the sports of Victoria Day for
instance, although a good at
tendance was .present, how
many more would have come
if some music was  provided?
The more people we can get
into Kelowna the better is the
advertisement, and music is an
attraction that appeals to every
person. In the hands of Mr.
Robertson it is without doubt
that a good band will soon be
supplying first-class music.
Some little attention has been
paid to the unemployed, but
there are two kinds,  the un-
 employed, and the unemploy-
able.     Mr.  Raymer when  at
the council meeting last week,
asked the city to start the moving of the. A. & T."buildings,
and the repairing and  moving
of the fences at once, so  as to
give work'for the unemployed.
He   pointed   out   that   labor
would be hard to get in a few
weeks timfe, and it would  be
well to give those who were
out of work something to do to
keep.them in town.   The project-was highly commendable,
, and given in fill good faith by
.'-Mr. Raymer,'but how are we
to treat those who are  looking
. for work and hoping that they
' do not find it in a hurry ?
* ' Two instances came" to our
■, notice.hi- .veek, one where
" good   strong   healthy   fellow,
supposed to be after a job, was
toldof good renumerative employment' and   on   enquiries
r. came to the conclusion that the
work was to strenuous.    Another where a different lad had
, been-looking about for work
.forri some' • weeks,' and   when
asked   if   he   would   like   to
sweep out Raymer's Hall replied that the job would be
"too dusty."     Can the council
cater for unemployed • of this
description ? How abont starting a knitting school, or better
still a school to teach these un-
employables how to smoke.
: It   is   certainly   a   pleasing
feature to know that a tour of
inspection ■  in     the     Chinese
quarters'revealed the fact that
Chinatown is kept- in   a  good
state of cleanliness.    The reports of such  good  judges  of
health as Dr. Boyce,  Aid. Cox
and Chief Hidson   can   hardly
be repudiated, but is  it  not a
pity that their report is marred
by the  fact that  many  white
people have to be  called  over
coals for dirtiness, more especially in their back yards.   Filth
is the breeding place of disease,
a fact  any  health  officer  will
endorse, and  surely  such  an
offence ought  to  come  under
the criminal law.    Disease may
endanger a neighbor's life, and
the sentence of having to  pay
a  fee  for  having  your   back
yard cleaned  up  by  the  city
scavenger is too light.     Cleanliness is next to  Godliness,  so
the old saying goes, but ought
not the two to  travel  together
hand in hand.

at Englemere, Ascot, entertaining a large
number of friends for the occasion. " Lord
Roberts is now seventy-six, but carries his

Palace for the bestowal of the -Victoria
Cross which he won so gloriously in the
Mutiny. Of the six children born to Lord
and Lady Roberts two daughters now survive.  Their heroic son fell at Colenso.  '

Colin McKinnon who was engaged in work on the new Myers
flat waggon road t near Okanagan
Falls met with a serious accident
last week. Noticing a small bush
fire creeping near a supply of
blasting powder, he hurried to- extinguish the fire, but before he
could do so the powder exploded
filling his side, arm and face with
shattered rock. His left eye was
dangerously injured.
Luke Nicholson was driving a
team with a load of lumber down
the hill by the side of the Okanagan Falls, when he was thrown
from his seat and fell under the
wheels of the waggon. He sustained injuries that necessitated
him being conveyed at once to

into briquettes. The United States
Government have already started
experiments at Pittsburg with
North Dakota coal, with very satisfactory results. The machinery
used is of German manufacture
and German experts have been
brought over to conduct the tests.
The coal is about the same quality
as that used in Germany and other
countries * where briquetting is
largely done. Briquetting coal
means taking put the water and

Wanted, 2,000,000 Bogs?
Have you a boy to spare?     The saloon
must have boys or it must shut up its shop.
Can you find one ?    It is  a   great  factory,
and unless it can have 2,00,000 from  each
generation, for raw material, some of these
factories must close up, and the operatives
be thrown out upon a cold world, and the
public revenue dwindle.   One  family out
of every five must contribute- boy in  order to' keep up the supply. Will you help ?
Which of your boys will it be ?     Are you
a father?    Have you given your  share to
keep up the supply for  this  great  public
institution that is helping pay your  taxes
and kindly electing public officers for you ?
Have  you  contributed  a  boy ?     If  not,
some other family has had   to   give  more
than its share.   Are you selfish?     Voting
to keep the saloon open to grind up boys,
and then do nothing to keop up   the sup-
ply?    Ponder these questions,  ye  voters,
and answer them to God,   to  whom  you
will one day give an account for votes as
well as prayers.    And ye mothers, wives,
and daughters, are  you,  by precept,  ex-
ample and influence in every possible  direction/doing  all you  can  to  save  the
boys from the enticements of the horrible
liquor saloon, and to hasten the day when
it shall be outlawed,  and curse  our  fair
lanH^omore ?™if 'notrwhynot ? -=
We clip the following, given as the
words of an officer of the Liquor League
of Ohio 'at a meeting in which the interests
of the of the saloon business were being
"it will appear from these facts, gentlemen, that the success of our business is
dependent largely upon the creation of
appetite for drink. Men who drink
liquor, like all others, will die, and if there
is no new appetite created, our counters
will be empty as will be our coffers. Our
children will go hungry, or we must
change our business to that of some other
more renumerative.
"The open field for the creation of this
appetite is among the boys. After men
have grown and their habits are formed,
they rarely ever change in this regard. It
will be needful, therefore, that missionary
work be done among the boys, and 1 make
the suggestion gentlemen, that nickels ex-.
pended in treats to tne boys now will return in dollars to your tills after the appetite has b'een^formed. Above all things,
create appetite I"
Such a statement seems absolutely
fiendish; and yet, whether spoken or un-
spoken, the fact remains that the traffic
exists only by recruits from among the
boys. "Wanted, 2,000.000 boys," must be
.the constant motto of this infamous business, that a few may grow rich, and their
children grow in luxury, while "tlieir pa-
trons go down to the lowest depths of
degradation and poverty.
The incident herein related, which appeared in The Union Signal, has been
substantiated, and we desire to hold it
before the public, and especially before
the fathers, until they pass judgement
upon the saloon business. Do" you stand
for the* boys or for the saloon ?   ' -

Quebec Bridge Likely to be
A semi-official announcement is to hand
that Messrs. Bautlet, Mojeska & Fitzmaurice
the engineering commission appointed by
the government, have prepared plans for
"the new bridge at Quebec. This will
come as a surprise after the general debates last session, when it was decided
not to start operations until 1911, and that
the completion should not be looked for
until 1916. Mr. R. L. Borden ,had shown
that the contract terms between the G.T.P.
and the government were not binding
until the bridge was built, so the freight
originating on the prairie .section of the
G.T.P. would have to be carried via the
States. Sir Wilfred Laurier's suggestion
of a ferry between^Quebec and Levis has
not commended itself to the Liberal members, and it is likely that there has been
strong pressure brought on the government
to hurry on the work. The structure will
be built on the cantilever principal, and
constructed of nickel steel.
Neto Churches for Fernie   .
Since the disastrous fire that struck Fernie last fall, building has been very, brisk
in the district. Five new churches are to
be built at once. _The Presbyterians are
putting up a $12,000 edifice. The Methodist church will cost $14,000. The church
of England already has its foundations
dug, and the Roman Catholic and Baptist
will proceed as soon as plans are available.

Performs Operation in  Heaot] Sea
For the first time has alfcoperation been
performed on the high seas, with the boat
rolling all the time. . A passenger on
board the Cunarder Saxonia, "was suffering from acute -hernia, the pain being terrible. Dr. Maclntyre the" ship surgeon,
after trying all available means to pull his
patient through without an operation found
it impossible to do so. He estimated that
unless an operation was performed at once
the patient woi'ld die long before the port
was reached, he consequently obtained
the patient's permission to go ahead. The
patient was put under ether and the doctor prepared for the operation.' The boat
was pitching and tossing in 'the heavy
sea, _>ut the surgeon successfully managed
to carry .his patient to safety."V*-There was
the gravest danger that the motion of the
ship might cause'the patients -death by a
false cut, but not one false cut was made.
The authorities congratulated the surgeon
on his feat at the arrival. of the boat at
East Boston. Thepatient was carried by
ambulence to the Carney Hospital.'.

When the home team wins
Pa grins and grins
Arid warbles a little song.
And says: "Well. well.
It's a cinch to tell
Who'll nail the flag'to the mast thia year!
Of the final outcome I have no fear,
Though they once in a while go wrong"
~ And he'll stand around in the kitchen with
ma j
And josh her a little and aay: "I saw
A gown in the window downtown today
That 11 look pretty dandy on you. And say
Your hat, I guess,
Wouldn't match the dress,
So you'd better order some new headgear
You've only had two so far this year."
An then he'll kiss her again and say:
"You just ought to see them  home boys
play I"
And ma, she's wise, for she says real sweet:
"I know they're a team that can't be beat"

And grumbles around all day,
And says, says he:
"You take it from me
If anyonejells you those mutts can play",'
You tell/em they're off their base I"
And then he'll go out with a scowling face
To ma and say: "There ain't no sense

I can't quite see.
For the life of me.
Where all the money I give you goes 1

I work mighty hard for the coin I get
And you can't blow it all in, you bet!"
But ma says nothing for quite awhile,
And then she gives a sarcastic smile,
And says: 'Take your  hoop and  roll  it

I reckon the home team lost today!"

"Florodora," which-will be the offering
of the San Francisco Opera Company at
I the Opera House on June 10th, will-prove,
without a question of doubt, the most important in the history of theatricals in the
city.   The first production of " Florodoro "
was  given at the Lyric Theatre, London,
November 11th, 1899, a__ within a month
after its premiere the strains of  "Florodora." beautiful music swept over Europe
and  America  like  an  epidemic.   AH of
the box office records of the  States are
held by " Florodora," even those of the
much   talked   of   "Merry   Widow"   not
reaching those established by the English
musical comedy.   Each and every member
of  the  San  Francisco Opera Company is
happily cast in " Florodora," and all work
as  a  unit  in   making the production the
gigantic success that it is.     "The Silver
Star of Love," Dolores' entrance song, has
never been better sung than it is by Mabel
Day.     " In   the  Shade  of the Sheltering
Palm " falls to Francis K. Lieb, a handsome
young  high   baritone   who never fails to
receive at least two encores.     " Tell me,
Pretty  Maiden,"  or  as  it  is  universally
known, "The Sextette," is sung and acted
by beautiful young women and handsome
young fellows in every respect the equal
of  the  originals, fhe   female members of
the sextette being Maybelle Seaman, Myrtle
Ward, Helen Vick, Hada Freyer, Virginia
Marshall,   and  Mabel  Hilliard,  and   the
male    members    being   Charles   Albert,
Arthur 'Holloway,  Tony   Nash, Bowman
Johnson, James  Hayes, and  Arthur  Ray.
"I Want to be a Military Man" is - ell
handled  by Fred Snook, and "Galloping,
Galloping," and a new waltz song, entitled
"Spring," bring  Lucille  Palmer the best
opportunity of her sweet young life.   There
are  some  fourteen" other numbers in the
original score, and J. Russel Powell interpolates  "The  Robber's   Dream."     If is
worth   the price of admission just to hear
Teddy Webb and MabefDay in "When
We Ale on the Stage." the comedy hit of
the last act.f " Florodora."   The music is
under the direction of Edou'ard Buechner,
and Will Smith, a producer responsible for
some of the genuine successes of the past
few seasons,' has charge of the stage: • The
female chorus consists of Dot Clare, Marguerite Boyle, Mayme Boyle, Anette Boyle,

A feature that will be welcomed
with open arms will be the  enacting    of   that   inimitable   musical
comedy, "Floradora," bv  the San
Francisco Opera Co.   The production will take place  at  the  Opera
House on Friday, June 11th.   The
general aspect  of  the  piece  will
adapt itself to the  actors,  such as
we know them.    One can imagine
Mr. Tom Webb, as Tweele Punch,
the phrenologist, his bump  of  affection  for  a  Kelowna  audience
sticking  out  like  a water melon.
The well-known  chorus  of    leil
me Pretty Maiden," also  being a
striking feature in the  production.
The scenery and dresses have been
specially arranged, and a gorgeous
spectacle can be relied upon. The
Opera Co. have a reputation  that
is   unsurpassed  for its brilliancy
and well  picked  talent,  the  cast
j advertised    being   an    unusuaUy
strong one for these shores.     The
play itself  is  thoroughly  healthy,
having had.a first-class run  in the
Old   Country   about seven years
ago, since then it has been continually   on  the   bills   at provincial
houses at home and abroad
The city council of Kelowna will receive
up to July 1st, at 12 noon, plans for the
improvement and development of the city
park. , I
All plans must be based on an early expenditure of $3,500.00, any further outlay
to extend over a period of years; and the
design to embody a harmonious and progressive development  of  the  park  as  a
whole. , ..    i
For the most meritorious and practical
plans the council will award first and second prizes of $75.00 and $50.00 respectively, but the council reserves the right to
award one prize only, either first or second
or second or to make no award, should
the plans, in the judgement of the park
committee, be deemed of insufficient merit.
Blue prints of a typographical survey ot
the park may be obtained by intending
competitors from the city clerk. ' (
