A meeting of the city council
was held on Tuesday last. The
Mayor and Aids. Rowcliffe, Ball,
Cox and Bailey being present.
The minutes of the previous
meeting having been read and
adopted the following correspondence was dealt with. -
* Municipal Wood Construction
Ltd., re wood stave pipes. -
Morrison-Thompson, re erecting
scaffold for the completion of their
building and the Kelowna Furniture Store.
G. A. Stimpson & Co.,_re debentures.
Dominion Securities Co., re debentures.
R. B. Kerr, re accident to A. L.
Meugens.     •■
' In the last named letter Mr". Kerr
pointed out to the council that Mr.
Meugins, had on the 22nd of May
fallen from his bicycle, when turning the  corner of Water Street.
The cause of the accident was the
presence  of some slabs   in    the
middle of the road  left there by
the   council's workmen and  Mr.
Meugens put forward' a. claim  of
,  $ 10_ for damages to himself and a
good suit of clothes. _
. The Mayor appointed -a com?
mittee to look into, the matter, and
'to ascertain if Mf.^/Ieugens '.had a
light,on his bicycle*«o"as~ to -show
. j. up-any obstruction; "'VX-.      - ' V
~A ~A letter;was alsp rea_frcr* Aid.
, Ball-asking leave to tender _is res-
, jgnation from the park committee.
. The'rMayor and Aldermen  accepted the resignation, at the same
time expressing their regret at having to do 'so.; rAldl'Cox ,was appointed, in Aid. Ball's place.
Aid. Cox after accepting the position remarked that he had"*" noticed quite a few broken glass bottles about the park and thought it
time these were moved. On the
sports day children were running
about with no shoes or stockings
on, and laid themselves liable to
get cut feet. He would like to see
a first move in that direction. N
' The trustees of the A. &. T.
Association' were present and Mr.
J. F. Burne the city solicitor, had
prepared die necessary legal, documents wKich now only required
signing. The agreements were
read by the city solicitor and gen-
• erally discussed. The agreement
between the city and the A. & T.
was first read and signed, afterwards the agreement between the
A. fie T. and Messrs. Crowley &
Buckland. A question was then
raised -TO<rt_i-_enl£t_rbf"rime—rib-
• tice would be given the. A. & T.
should the city wish to sell the
property, it being agreed to give
three month's notice so as to allow
the A fit T. to make arrangements
for their fall fair should the city
wish to sell the 'land <about the
same time as that event.
Mr. Samson was present and-explained that both he and the other
members of the brigade did not
like the fuss made by the council
at the last meeting, about their
"chari-yarri." Several members of
the volunteer fire brigade had signified their intention to .quit owing
to the reports'that came out in the
papers. .He thought as Mr. Jenkins was- .the first among their
number to get married, that a little
liberty ought to have been' given.
The Mayor explained that the
fire brigade ,-was .certainly doing
good work in the city and, he did
not understand the case in question
to.have been referred to any persons in particular, it. was only a
general cry out against' the: .street
noises that are prevalent just now.
Aid. Ball, explained that * his
daughter was not at all strong, and
, should such a noise awake her in
the middle of the night the result
might prove fatal. Luckjly the
noise referred to at last meeting
did not awaken the child and so
no harm was done,
Mr, Samson also wished to ask
that a donation should be given
for every false alarm or fire, the
practices were being put in free of

charge and he thought it only right
to ask the council for some renum-
eration. He pointed out that the
members sometimes had good
clothes on when called to attend a
real alarm and some compensation
ought to be ready on that score.
He also wished to ask the council to make provision for the brigade to go to' Vernon on the 12th
of July, to compete with that city
in the hose and reel race.
The Mayor informed Mr. Samson that the matter would be taken
up and settled later on in the
TJiJ£, system of fire alarms
criticised by the brigade, it being
pointed out that so far no notices
hacTbeen printed giving the public
and brigade the signals that defined
the locality of the fire. Mr. Samson was instructed to speak to
Aid. Elliott and get these printed
at once.
Mayor DeHart did not think the
whistle blew often enough, he
suggested a repetit1'^"-«^,least half
a dozen .times. *""  \
• Aid. Ball' did not think more
than three were necessary. • So far
it had only been repeated three
times and' had worked well. It
was decided to keep to the present" system until itproved faulty.
'Mr. Samson/wished to know if
it was possible for the brigade to
get.an,.6rder from the council, fpr
all goods to be supplied! in corin,ec*'
tion with fire appliances and tunics
etc. The last shipment had not
proved a'success owing to some
complications .and Mn Samson
thought the members were more
likely to know what they would
require and could order better
Mr. Samson also wished to know
what steps the council were taking
to get him a room..
The Mayor explained that the
fire matters were left in the hands
of Aid. Elliott, who was absent.
He suggested Mr. Samson seeing
Mr. Elliott arid making, further arrangements with him.'
1 The question of the proposed
city team of horses was brought
up, "The city clerk said that no
replies were received aa yet to. the
advertisement placed in the paper.
The mayor remarked that he
ha'd heard from Mr. Lloyd-Jones
that he was about to get two heavy
teams, and that he would be able
to sell one to the city at a reasonable price. He also had said that
he would be able to buy the team
b-fcir~duririg— Vci<T~winter~mbn__i8
and the council were asked to
look further into the matter.
Aid. Cox wished to know if the
CP.R. had started work yet. The
mayor explained that a gang of
men were due down here last
Thursday, but so far had not arrived. The surveyor is at work
now and the work will begin
- It was pointed out by the city
clerk that there was no map in the
council chamber showing the subdivision of lots and this was causing quite' a lot of bother. One
man was being charged with the
dues of himself and perhaps three
others. The mayor promised the
matter attention.
Mr. Raymer who was_ present
on A. fie T. business explained that
quite a lot of unemployed were
around town at present and wished to urge the council into making
some speedy plans for the removal
of the A. & T. buildings. This
work,  he pointed  out that
In a very exciting game our boys
at last have achieved a victory over
their rivals. The game, while
loosely played at the start gradually tightened and in the ninth
innings with the score 8-8 it became rather dangerous for those"
people with a weak heart. In the
tenth neither team scored, but in
the 11 th Coe walked, made 3rd on
a wild throw by Manchester,-scoring on Pettigrew's clean hit to
right, Len McMillan then followed
with a clean drive and scored on
A. McMillan's out. Summerland
was powerless in their half and the
game was won with a well earned
victory for Kelowna.
The game, while being far from
played in midseason form was ex-
cellent-,for the first of the season.
Both teams are much better than
last season and some good ball
can be anticipated. The Kelowna
boys are practically a new team as
only four of last year's regulars
played, and while very light at the
bat, even more so than last year,
they will gradually improve in
that department and are a much
more evenly balanced team, field*;
ing in a fast clean style. The
team-work is much better than last
year and the individual starring - is
absent, which is highly gratifying:
The boys now play the game all
the time, taking advantage of every
opportunity. Good fielding among
the, players, which is bound to
bring good results, is,a prominent
feature. They'all realize that-the
winning of the game means a great
deal of hard work as Summerland
will work all the harder to win
the series, and as three of last-
year's players were riot fast enough
to make Summerland team, it calls
for considerable effort. Practice
three times a week is the programme.
Arrangements have been made
for Summerland to come here on
July 1st, they will charter the Aberdeen, bringing their band and of
course Summerland also. Another
game on the schedule takes place
in Kelowna before then and a good
crowd is expected to turn out and
%ive the local boys a send off.

The Electric Railway to
,   Vernon Scheme
Reported Early Construction of
100 Miles of Line
The following is from the
itoba "Free   Press" of  May
and will be of particular interest to
residents of Kelowna and   district.
The construction of the 100
miles of electric railway, tapping
the principal fruifgrowing centres
on both sides of Okanagan Lake,
is to be started shortly. The line
will be completed within eighteen
months. The enterprise was
started by local capitalists, who
are said to have secured the financial support of the Earl of Aberdeen, viceroy of Ireland, who is
the owner of the famous Cold-
steam ranch near Vernon. The
new company was incorporated
by special act at the last session of
the provincial parliament.
According to John F. Langan, of
Chicago, who has just returned
from a tour through Alberta and
the Okanagan, the proposed line
will greatly aid the rapid collection
of fruit at Vernon, where it is proposed to make a large fruit exchange. From Vernon the main
line will run down the west side
of the lake as far as Summerland,
an important fruit growing point.
Another branch will extend down
the east side of the same lake as
far as Kelowna, a distance of nearly forty miles. The water power
in the district will be harnessed
order to furnish the necessary
ergy for developing electricity,

A fire call caused many of the
spectators of the races on Victoria
Day to be alarmed, several rushing
off to their dwelling place^ to see
if the call originated from that locality.
The mile race was just announced and owing to the general stampede had to be abandoned until
later in the afternoon. The cause
of the fire was the careless dropping of a cigar or cigarette on
some dry stuff near the pavement
in Harvey Avenue, which broke
into flames and_ immediately attacked the sidewalk. The houses
alongside were in great danger,
and it was found neeessary to
summon the fire brigade. The
signals were given in accordance
with the arrangements, but the
fire brigade were unable to understand them as given. Some little
delay was experienced before the

the Rev. H. P. Thorpe, formerly
pastor of the Baptist Church at this
point, but now of Salmon Arm,
has suffered a severe loss in the
death of his father at Teignmouth,
S. Devon, England. The news
came by cable on Monday last,
and was received in that aame
spirit of sorrow as the news will
surely be received in .Kelowna.
That Mr. Thorpe has the sympathy
of dispeople of Kelowna is without a doubt.

Mayor DeHart left on Thursday
for Seattle to make arrangements
for the provincial fruit exhibit at
that point.
The morning of the 24th of May
opened with a hazy sky, signifying either rain or' stuffy weather.
Net to mar the enjoyment of the
day, the rain kept away, but enshrouded the valley with a close
atmosphere that was unlike any
of the weather that preceded the
day when all Kelowna was to celebrate the anniversary of the birthday of our late beloved Queen
Victoria. Victoria Day it was,
and a great triumph to those who
had the arrangements of a good
healthy days sport in hand. Several details were taken in hand in
the early morning by the committee and all was. ready for the
Marathon Race to be run at
10 o'clock.
The arrival of the Aberdeen and
Okanagan brought large crowds
from Penticton, Vernon and outlying ports, and entries for the
large race were made directly on
the boat's arrival.   "
At 10:30 the tinkle of the bell
was heard, together with the voice
of the Mayor, telling everyone
that the Marathon was about to be
run off. The entries were, Gordon
Stirling, Kelowna ; Arthur Bevan,
South Okanagan; T. W. Bell, Penticton; E. G. Fuller,* Kelowna and
W. C. Fuller Kelowna.
Mr. Elliott and Mr. Taylor acted
as ptarters, Mayor DeHart and Mr.
M^guire were the judges. - .
' The competitors having lined
up,'the starters gave the signal and
five sturdy men started on a 9 mile
course, with five laps to the mile.
Sixteen laps had been scored when
W. C. Fuller found it necessary to
drop out leaving only four to
hustle for the places. For a time
Bell of Penticton was a fast favorite, soon opinions altered and
Arthur Bevan of South Okanagan
leaped into fame. What had happened to Gordon Stirling on whom
Kelowna's victory everybody was
reckoning. Thirty-two laps were
scored when Bevan dropped, behind and Bell and G. Stirling were
ahead, E. G. Fuller taking up tbe
rear, several rounds were made in
this order. The Judge called the
score, when Stirling seeing it was
near the end made away from
Bell, leaving him several yards be
hind.With sprightly step he leaped
towards the tape and scored the
victory for Kelowna, followed closely by Bell for second place.
Meanwhile Fuller who had been
lagging behind putomr spirt-and
passed Bevan in a contest for third
pjace. Kelowna was glad to see
her protege win, but it was a good
tustle with Bell. Both stayed the
course like Trojans.and even while
Bevan put up a good pace, Fuller
passing him in the last lap and
leaving him to take the fourth
place. The winner's time was 60
minutes and 49 seconds.
The grand stand was by this
time filled with spectators, while
others thronged the outside , of the
course. •
Some minor events were pulled
off during the morning, as follows,

The fire alarm systems seem
at present incapabable of conveying to the fire brigade as
well as to the general public,
any idea as to the locality of a
fire. Last Monday the alarm
given was two short and one
long whistle which is due to
signify that the fire is in the
east end of the town. The
fire brigade rushed wildly
about unable to locate the position of the fire, while the general public went towards their
own property each one hoping
it was not his or her home that
was in danger.
Except through the columns
of the press there has hitherto
been no notice placed in a
conspicuous place where the
signals would be made known,
surely it is time some steps
were taken in this matter, and
an efficient code of signals
might be advised before such a
project is seriously dealt with
and by the paragraph referred
to, the date for decision is not
so very far away. The C.P.
R. is- not in the. habit of letting) a smaller power get ahead
of it, and the whole system although appealing, to the fruit
growers generally, may in the
near future be a subject for
discussion between tbe promoters of the project, the C.
P. R' and the inhabitants of the
Okanagan Valley.

The general outlook on

one time were a source of
worry to the farmer, but the

A Lazy, .Happy-go-lucky People In a
Bankrupt Republic.
The infusion of Spanish blood and
customs into the Ctaaranl has produced
a people; with the faults and good qualities of both In about equal parts.
Dark of complexion, with strongly
marked" Indian features, essentially
gentle when unrestrained or not unduly excited, careless of the morrow,
poor and honest, hospitable and generous, indolent and uncultured, strongly Catholic in theory, but generally lax
in religious' performances as to dogmas—this is a rough sketch of the native people of Paraguay. Asuncion;
the capital, and even the smaller
places—Villa Rica, San Pedro, Villa del
Pilar, Villa Concepcion — have their
aristocratic families, of "which the
daughters and sons are sent to Europe
to be educated and which maintain au
exclusiveuess that must be almost isolation. But in general the people mingle readily.
In the early morning in the streets
of Asuncion the women gather in their
long white dresses and barefooted to
sell their wares. The younger women,
judged by our standard, are beautiful
and from carrying baskets and water
jars on their heads have attained an
erect and graceful carriage which our
young women could well imitate. Besides, when they laugh they show two
rows of pearls, and -their speech in
soft Guarani patois is worth going far
to hear.
When you see Asuncion you see Paraguay, for it is the most advanced
city in the republic. Its streets are
poorly paved,,it has-mule cars which
run at long intervals and low speed,
and the hotel accommodations are not
exceptional, but there is a kind of lazy,
happy-go-lucky gayety about the city
.that represents the national feeling.
Paraguay is hard up—yes, almost stone
broke. The currency is paper and the
value so small that for a hundred dollars one receives a basketful of ragged
stuff, printed in Germany, to represent
some nebulous indebtedness of the republic. Gold does not stay long in
Paraguay, nor does it often enter the
country.—Van Norden Magazine.
Treasure Searching in the Thames
Much curiosity was excited by the appearance of a diver in full diving costume,,
ready to decend into the bed of the river
Thames ot Kingston. The descent was
made from a raft moored about midstream
just above Kingston Bridge. The cause
of the strange sight was, that a few days
previous as a lady was travelling in a
steam launch, a gold chain purse containing a large sum of money had fallen into
the river. It was for this the diver was
looking, the purse being highly prized by
the lady, apart from its intrinsic worth.
Although the diver traversed the bed
from Kingston to Surbiton Promenade,
by the evening he was unable to find any
trace of the missing article.

Best Way to Destroy Gunpowder and
-   Nitroglycerin. _  ;
^The best way to destroy ordinary
black gunpowder is to throw it into a
stream under conditions that prevent
any harm coming to human beings • or
animals through the dissolving of-the
saltpeter. . If no suitable stream is
available, the gunpowder may be stirred with water in tubs, or the dry'gun-
powder may be poured out on the
ground in a long thin line and ignited
with a fuse at one end. *"
To "destroy dynamite cartridges .the
paper wrappings "should be carefully
removed, the bare cartridges laid in a
row with their ends in contact and the
first cartridge ignited with a fuse without a cap. Even with these precautions a simultaneous explosion of the
entire mass may occur, so that it is
wise to retire to a safe distance. The
row of cartridges should be laid parallel with the wind and ignited at the
leeward end, so that the flame will be
driven vaway from the mass.
Frozen dynamite should be handled
with special care, as its combustion is
peculiarly liable to assume an explosive character. A small quantity of
dynamite may be destroyed by throw*
ing it in very small bits into an open
fire, or the cartridges may be exploded
one by one in the open air with fuses
and caps.
Dynamite should never be thrown
into water, as the nitroglycerin which
it contains remains undissolved and
capable of doing mischief. Other explosives which contain nitroglycerin
should be treated In the same way as
Ammonium nitrafe explosives may
be thrown in small fragments into an
open Are or If they do not contain ni-

of water. Explosive caps should be exploded singly with pieces of fuse.—Scientific American.
It  must  have   been  a strange   sight  a
Lincoln, when a motor  car  came dashing
through the streets with a  four  year  old
baby at the wheel.     The  chauffeur  had
been in the habit of taking the child round
with him, and had   often  before  left  the
car unattended, while   he  went  into   his
lodgings.    It was evident  that  the   child,
Master  Philip Baldock, knew  the  working of the car, for he soon got the machinery going, and placing both hands on   the
steering wheel made  off  with   a   "Honk,
Honk," at a  rate   of  about  25   miles  an
hour.     The   chauffeur   aroused   by  the
noise of the car going off, at once  started
in pursuit.   Several  others  took  up   the
chase soon afterwards,   but, still  the  car
went merrily on.   First it knocked a milk
wagon   over  and   then   dashed   into   the
chemist   shop   by   the  window.     Philip
however   had   tumbled   out  before  the
latter impact and was picked   up   unhurt
When the   real  chauffeur  turned   up   he
was surprised to find the car still working
and very little damage done.
Scalded to Death in a Battery
From Chiswick comes the report of a
terrible scalding fatality, the victims being
Charles Jones and Edward Williams. The
two men were employed by Messrs.
Chibnall. Ltd., to clean out the steam
boiler, and it was necessary to remove the
manhole cover of the boiler to do this.
When the cover was loosened a great
rush of steam enveloped the men and
their cries soon brought assistance. They
were carried at once to the West London
Hospital where they expired after several
hours agony.
Botjs Escape Prom Borstal Prison
Excitement prevailed in  Kent  when  it
was made public that two young  convicts
had escaped from Borstal and   had taken
to the  woods.     The  names  were  Chas.
Richards and George Winoley.   They had
received every consideration for good conduct, and were allowed extraordinary lib-
erty, and it  was  never  thought  that  an
escape was anticipated.   A   gang  of men
were at work in the farm yard,  which  is
an acre in extent, and surrounded by black
palisades with pointed  tops.     The  gang
was   divided,   some  cleaning  and   some
feeding the horses.     The  two  runaways
were in  the  neighborhood  of  the  staw
stack, and the warder in  charge  had  no
idea that they had any intention to  break
away.   He was superintending  the   work
when   he   suddenly   saw   the  two  men
mount    the   palisades   and   make   clean
away.   As no other keeper was  near,   to
pursue would have meant the loss perhaps
of the rest of the gang and the  runaways
had to go.   A search is  being  made   but
so far the fugitives have not  been- found.

Moderator of theGeneral"A_embly;—died
in a railway carriage while travelling from
Perth to Crieff where he was to have
preached the following Sunday in connection with the Perthshire Chorus annual

alPflie leading authors. Mr. J. M. Barrie
made a personal appeal, but in vain. It
was announced that a special memorial
service would be held in the Abbey. The
funeral took place last Saturday,1 and the
remains were interred at Dorking as pre-

From Melfort, and Sask., Daysart
in same district comes the report
of a severe earthquake shock being
felt. At Melfort a brilliant meteorite with a conspicuous tail
passed over the town in a northerly direction. At Daysart a severe
shock was felt between the hours
of nine and ten. The hotel was
shaken and rocked about for a
space of two minutes. Reports
from the surrounding districts
state that many horses tied in the
stables broke their halters and
rushed about the stable.
Snow is generally reported
throughout the prairie towns, and
it is expected quite a little damage
will be done to the wheat which
has already begun to show above
the ground.

To get the favour of one kiss,
A dozen now won't come amiss-
Tell her sol.
Your love for her is no mistake-
You feel it, dreaming or awake-
Don't conceal it!    For her sake.

If e'er you loved her, now's the time-

An hundredfold of tenderness!

The Dominion forest reserves occupy an
important place in the report for the year
1908 of the Superintendent of Forestry,
Mr. R. H. Campbell, which has lately
been issued. The Riding Mountain reserve, the largest of these, is the most
fully treated. Its topography and condition in regard to numbering are noted
and emphasis is placed on the important
place it must occupy in regard to the
water supply of the adjacent country,
both for domestic and industrial purposes.
An evidence of the latter is the granting
of permission to the Minnedosa Power Co.
of Minnedosa, Man., to erect a dam on
Clear Lake, in the reserve, so as to render
the water of the Little Saskatchewan available for the production' of power. The
timber survey of the reserve is practically
completed. The fire ranging service on
the reserve, and, in addition, on the Duck
Lake and Porcupine reserves was during
the year previous (1907) organized with a
Chief ranger in charge and six assistant
rangers. The protection of game on the
reserve is also being given  consideration.
An important aspect of the management
of ^the Moose Mountain reserve results
from its use as a summer resort, especially along the shore of Fish Lake. Regulations for granting occupation of camping sites by lease or otherwise are under
consideration. The main question in the
management of the reserve is its protection
from fire.
The setting aside of a permanent forest
reserve to the north of the Saskatchewan
River, opposite Prince Albert, has also
beeTrrecommerTded! »
Notice is also taken of the resolution
passed by the Irrigation Convention in
1907 favoring a forest reserve on the eastern slope of the Rockies.
The amended timber regulations adopted in December, 1907, are given in full.
The main principle of these is that the
timber is to be sold by public auction at
the office of the timber agent for the district, and that before being offered for sale
each berth shall be surveyed and shall be
examined by a competent cruiser. The
timber cruiser then submits a sworn report
as to the quantity and value of the timber
and on this report and upset price for the
berth is fixed by the Minister of the Interior.

and the one used in this case if applied to
men would bring the-same uncomplimentary conclusion.

Vaughan next went before Judge Crease
and explained that he was being followed
by detectives and that he was going to
commit suicide. The story was investigated by the police and the bullet was
found with the mark of the hammer, but
unexploded. Vaughan was at once taken
into the charge   of  the   police  who   will

Reform, at Western Post Offices
The Postmasters association of the Dominion at the annual meeting at Ottawa
waited on the post master general while
at the capital to urge minor reforms,
namely a letter system for the labelling of
newspapers going through the mails, an
increase from the* $35 generally allowed
postmasters at small offices and for the
supplying of safes to the various' offices
for the safe custody of stamps and papers.
Mr. Lemieux promised that all the requests would receive attention.
Baton!8 Pay Forged Cheques
It was strange that Dr. Peterson of Saskatchewan should receive a parcel from
Eaton's Winnipeg store, all charges prepaid. An yet he was unable to find out
from whom it was sent. The parcel was
sent out without the name of the consignor.
It was also strange that when Dr. Peterson
got his pass book from the bank he found
three cheques amounting to $75 which he
could not remember having written. On
enquiries it was found that these cheques
had gone to pay for the saddle. According to reports a man entered Eaton's store
and said he was sent by Dr." Peterson to
make the purchase. He then cashed the
cheques. The "Winnipeg police are on
the case but so far no.clue is coming forward.
Allan Liner Springs a Leak
A marconigram was received a few days
ago from Gapt. Fairfull of the Allan Line
Steamer, Tunisian, stating that the vessel
had met with an accident almost identical
with that which recently befel the Lake
Champlain. The Tunisian while steaming
slowly, inward bound, through heavy
fields of ice, struck a very heavy mass
which started a plate under the forepeak.
The broken plate caused quite a heavy
leak, and Capt. Fairfull considered it his
duty to head at once for St. John, 60 miles
distant, instead of trying to run on to
Imprisoned in Ice.
The Allan liner Mongolian has been
imprisoned in ice for days, and was only
released by the heavy swell which broke
up the ice and allowed the boat to go
free. She was stuck on 19th of May, just
outside St. Johns' Harbour. On the 21st
the heavy swell caused a commotion in
the"great~field,_and "thTe—pressure^ on~th"e
steamer was greater than before. Some
fear was felt but when dawn broke the
vessel waa found in open water. The release will be looked upon with great favour by shipping agents and insurers, as
the conditions were such as would have
likely damaged the vessel.

Burgulars Knew Safe Combination
A strange robbery was successfully
carried out at Indian Head lately, whereby
a safe containing $64 was rifled. The
store which belonged to Messrs. Cornell
& Travis, did not close till midnight and
the thief must have done his work between that and daylight. A hole was
bored in the door so as to draw back the
bolt, the exact locality being known by
the burglars. The safe was opened by
means of the combination, which mus'
have been known by the burglars.
Hindoo Cremation Rites
The body of a Hindoo was cremated
last week at Cranbrook, B.C., with all the
rites and ceremonies belonging to his
tribe. The man who died in the hospital

men, these four conducting the ceremony.
The bones of the hands and feet, the ribs
and head will be sent to India and thrown
into the Ganges. The people congregated
from all parts to see the ceremony and
automobiles, rigs and saddle horses were
present in large numbers. This is the
first time that the government has granted
a permit to cremate a body.

During the eeaaon of 1907 forty .even
fire rangers were employed patrolling the
forest reserves and forested districts, distribution, aa follows: B. C Railway Belt
21; eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains,
(from the International boundary to the
Saskatchewan River,) 7; Edmonton district 5 j Prince Albert' district, 7; rangers
were also kept along the C. N. R., from
Erwood to the Pass, two along the Athat.
aska River, from Athnbaska Landing to
Lake Athnbaska and in the Lesser Slave
District. Attention is called to the great
of fire along the G. T. R. construction. 'Reports of extensive damage by fire to the
forests in the district west of Edmonton
were not, however officially confirmed.
A strong plea is made for the extention
of abequate fire protection to the forest
country north,of the Saskatchewan, stetch-
ing from Hudson Bay to the Rockies.
Tree Distribution.
The value of the work of the Forestry
Branch in the distribution of trees from
Indian Head to farmers in the Northwest
is noted and suggestions made for improved facilities at the Nursery Station. The
report of the Chief of the Tree Planting
Division, Mr; N. M. Ross, which forms an
appendix to the Superintendent's report,
announces a distribution of over 1,700,000
. trees in the spring of 1907.   In 1908 trees
- were sent to 1424 applicants; of these 464
were in Manitoba, 659 in Saskatchewan,
- and 301 in Alberta. Planting on the
Spruce Woods forest reserve, the growth
conifers at Indian Head and the permanent
plantations at the Nursery Station are also
, - discussed. .-
The subject of irrigation, which also is
under the Superintendent of Forestry, constitutes    an    important    part     of-    the
The importance of a proper hydrographic
survey is dwelt upon. 'The determination
of the water supply is of the sreatest importance, not only to the irrigation interests
.' but for the municipal supply of the rapidly
developisg towns of,the west, for the operation of railways and for the convenience
of the growing population. As the administration'of the water resourses of this
great district is under the control of the
Dominion the responsibility- for dealing
with this subject rests upon the federal
authorities, and the importance o'f the interests involved would justify the increased
expenditure that may _ be necessary - to
place the - hydrographic survey on an
efficient basis." - _„ -
\ The inadequalty of the work so far done
and the difficulties ofthe^resent situation
are dwelt upon and the progress made in
-this line of work in the neighboring states
of the Union referred to..
_-____2__-  <_
The Irrigation Act isalso touched upon.
The general principle is stated as follows:
"The principle of the law is thatthe water
is public property and that any rights to
the use it do not convey any property in it
but ure granted for beneficial use in connection with a specific location. If any
larger right were permitted to exist, a right
to water might be held speculatively and
not used beneficially. One person or company might get control of the water and
have a monoply which would placs the
holders of land dependent on the stream
at their mercy. The evidence of experience is against the unrestricted transfer of
water rights, and the proper policy seems
to be to adhere in the main to the principle already established by the Act of
making the right to the use of water
appurtenant to the land."
The amendments to the act are noted,
also recommendations made by various
bodies for its amendment, with reasons for
and against the suggested amendments
and their final disposition.     '
The " duty of water " and its determination is also taken up.
During the year 1907 137 sales'of land,
covering a total area of 62,332 acres,  for
reclamation by irrigation-were made.  Sales
of 470,000 acres to  the  Alberta  Railway
and Irrigation Company, and  of '380,573
acres to the Soutnern  Alberta  Land  Co.
were also under way.   Reference  is  also
made to the first Canadian Irrigation Conference at Calgary in July 1907.
National  Parks.
The taking over of the Dominion parks
by the Department and the organizing of
their administration is also treatedr During
the year (1907) Elk Park-had been fenced
in order to confine the buffalo, and a new
reserve-Buffalo Park-had been set aside.
Reports from Norman M. Ross, chief  of
the tree planting division,-James Leamy,

The first real play to appear in the new
Opera House will be Legge-Willis's  pro.
duction   of   "She  Stoops to Conquer," a
charming old English comedy and costume
play written by Oliver Goldsmith.    It is
certainly a befitting start to the good welfare of the new theatre that the actors are
all  picked from talented local celebrities.
The caste has already appeared in print,
and from the names included a good idea
can be gathered of the excellent quality of
the acting which may be expected.
!     The price of the seats, it will be noted.
| has been reduced, while the time of com
! mencement has been changed from 8 to
8.30.   This is to allow the country people
, to fix up their chores.
The scenery has been hand in during the
I last few months, Mr.   Reed  weilding  the
! brush with artistic taste,   making  a   room
scene look like a room, and not like a box
t as is the case with some of the travelling
j companies we have seen heretofore.   The
I Garden scene will excel all previous gard
: ens, while the inn scene   will  be  painted
from an old country hostelry that the painter has well   been   able   to   study.     The
dresses are being made by Davis & Mathie
who have turned their work shop   into a
regular  Clarksons.      The  larger    staging"
room and greater facilities  will   do  away
with the long waits that marred a little the
last Legge-Willis production, the ten   min-;
utes inteaval will  be  strictly  adhered  to,
!: and the lightning arrangements will be all
under the control of one man.   It is "usual
j t at an openingjperformance on a new stage
for people to be seated well on time as the
mystery.of enticing the black cat over the
stage to signify good luck, and long life, to
both theatre and play  is  a   mystery  only
once seen perhaps in a life time.

Mr. Budden attended and asked leave
to dig a ditch across the road in order to
get irrigation water., His crop was badly
in need of irrigation and he could not afford time or money to put in a covered
box culvert.
The,council promised it attention, at the
same time remarking that they were unable to give permission of that description.
It was best for them to see the situation
and then make definite arrangements.
T. Hidson gave his report of the fire
that occurred on Monday afternoon. He
explained that a Mr. Chaplain was engaged by Mr. T. Morrison to' clear some
brush from "alongside the sidewalk. Mr.
Chaplin took it upon himself to bum the
brush, and in so doing managed to set fire
to the sidewalk. Mr. Morrison had refused
to pay for the damage done and Mr.
Chaplin did nob think he was liable.
