a :good report, and also}wished^ta

a very clever arrest having been
made on Friday during the football

! View hotel.
A full council sat on Monday
night and discussed quite a lot of
business.    ,    "
Mr. Meurling was present with a
plan of the proposed extensions of
the Royal'Hotel.,_ It was proposed
.to build an extension over tKe yard
at the back of the hotel/ the* same
to be "raised on "12 ft. 'pillars made
of concrete^    .■*      'v r    > /
Mayor DeHart wanted to know
if the fire arrangements .had been
gone, into at this hotel.   ■,   '
Aid.1 Bailey explained that at
present it was fully equipped in
case of fire and ' Mr. Wheeler had
promised to extend a suitable
"equipment to the.new portion to
be erected. Under "these circumstances'1 permission was granted
for the extension." ■
Mr. Ma'nsel attended on the
council and asked if it anticipated
buying a scavenger wagon, power
' or horse,roller, as he would be
happy-to supply any should they
require it/ 7'    ' '      >   *
Mayor DeHart replied that although a 'power .roller,,was necessary'for the "roads, he thought it
best'tq use the .grader firlt." \ As
far assa scayeng&r yagpntwas concerned the council  had  in mind
        t ,   'Chief Hidson asked the  council
/ 1 to consider supplying a life, buoy,
pool of water in the neighbourhood ropes  and  grappling  iron,  a-  in

a Marathon race, for that day  and
would rt like,r~- to -see -. some .good
healthy sports ruin  in  conjunction
with this race. ^ \ ^ .       ><•/-,) ^   ,,
Mayor DeHart replied -that "the
council would give the matter their
attention  and'' would "advise  him
further in respect to this.    (< j; ^7"]
The question of Carting sawdust
from the mill was next set, before
the "council.,';   <;(     "„  (Ui\ r/*
Aid. Ball believed  it could be
'  done cheaper than it is atv present.
,„ Aid. Elliott pointed., out that the
matter had been'taken  up"' before
, and* figures had been gone into,
and it was found that the, carting
. was being done as. cheaply as .possible, the' only >. suggestion, that
could be made was that the .'council had a horse and cart of their
own, this might cut .doiyn the- expense a little, but as there-was no
knowing how long the sawmill was
likely to stay on this side of _ the
lake, it might not prove a very
profitable investment for 'the city.
, A discussion next arose severely
criticising the number of barb wire
fences that bordered on the side-
„ walks of some of the principal
streets. .<;
Aid.  Bailey  remarked  that  he
thought a by-law; was madewhere-
hy such fences''- Weri_ not*' allowed.'
The ''council agreed that these
fences were  very  dangerous and
7referred the matter for, Mr. Qailey
to look into, and if necessary .have
these fences, removed..) ,„„.   , .
The Mayor suggested that it was
time grading was commenced on
some of the streets, and- in .'pointing out the state of the roads • between Richter, Street and Glen
Avenue, also between the school
house   and   Harvey Avenue,   re-
. marked that the roads last fall
were in a terrible condition owhig
to !the  overflow    of   water from
, the!-irrigation ditch, it was time
these ditches were fixed, and any
"repetition of the overflow wap ar-
.rested.. t... T ^, / \- ;'.. J\
Aid. Ball thought the owners
*_■_    _l*t_-_____t      in        «____a______        *__«*_l__
the1'ditches in question' ought to
have them put in a good! state'.of
repair, and did not' see what the
council wanted to do the work for,
he,took it that the owners or users
of the water were liable _or any
damage done to f property, and! if
the'ditches were not fixed this year
the',, council tcoul<^come, jupon the
users of that water, for damage to'
'the'road. Mayor DeHart replied
that it was very near a case for, the.,
council1 to take up last year, as one
of the citizens had threatened to
-uethecit. forhavinya stagnant
which was detrimental to health.
„ Aid. Ball suggested that the
whole matter be - referred to the
Board of Works, and that they
should see the city Solicitor and
report at next meeting.
I Mayor DeHart said the matter
ought to receive immediate attention, as it would not be v_ry, long
before water was turned on' for
irrigation purposes. He suggested
that a' water meeting should be
called this week, and it was finally
decided to make arrangements for
this meeting to be' on Thursday,
15th, in Lequime's Hall.
Mr. G. Rose attended on behalf of the Aquatic Association to
submit to the council a term of
agreement for the erection - of a
suitable building on the lake shore
in the park. This matter was fully
gone into, and it was agreed to accept, the agreement made between
the Aquatic Association and the
Park Committee. \ • <
Mr. L. C. Aviss attended and
asked permission to draw his
boats up op the beach, and also
asked leave to. build a landing on
the'.site "> or1 the old boat house.
Leave was granted until' more
satisfactory regulations could \ be
gone into." ' - " , :(
„' y_he question of .the sale of the
A. & T. Grounds -was put before
the counciLby the.Mayor, It'was
suggested Jhat an agreement, pe
made'wjth'the^A. & T. as follows :,
, 1 he unconditional sale or property to the.cit£for $5,500. „ .,'...
,The A.' & T. Association to erect
av$2,500 building,on' land leased
by the city in the Park. ■* ,v
The city to have the use of
building / for any special civic
purposed
The Mayor had already spoken
to several members,of the,A. & T.
association and they had endorsed
the arrangement as being in every
way "satisfactory.

he would have great difficulty in
saving life or recovering dead
bodies.
It was proposed by Aid. Rowcliffe, seconded by Aid. Bailey, that
the citv provide two life buoys and Penticton
ropes to be placed on the CP.R.
wharf and ferry wharf, also a
grappling iron to be used in case
of accident.
Discussions arose on the system
of a code of whistles being estab-
Jished so that people might know
in which direction a fire was. Also
a system of fire alarms was suggested by Aid. Elliott.
It was agreed that a hook and
ladder brigade was greatly needed
in the town, and the matter was
referred to the fire and water
committee. 7,.
The following motions were put
forward and carried." . '. , .
Elliott - Rowclifie —\That ' .he
agreement between the Aquatic
Association and the city council be
accepted, and that the Mayor and
and City Clerk be instructed to

that all the members of the council

engineer./, at the power house,
signal whistles to be used in case
of fire to locate same.' ' _- , ,1
The crack in the sidewalk caused
by the moving of Raymer's building across the street, was next taken up. The council thought -Mr.
Raymer ought to be- informed that
he would have to pay for the damage, and left it,in*the hands of" the
Board of Works.   ^
tThe council then adjourned (c

with great admiration by those

Enthusiasm goes a long way, and
had quite a lot to_ do in carrying
the Kelowna boys to victory. Penticton arrived in^time to see a-bit
of the town, and to get used to the
climate before wending their way
to thetpark. < The Juniors had a'
short game early in the afternoon
and managed to get beaten »by
juniors. The score
being three goals to one. They
played a good game and on both
sides many could be picked out
as likely to be useful seniors in a
few years time". The great game
started at' two thirty when the
seniors took the field, the line-up
was as follows.

- .The whistle blew at 2:30.    It was
now a cas'e-of "when Greek meets
Greek."     Slowly   but surely  the
home team pressed towards   Pen-
ticton's goal/ A skirmish, a shout,
and Kelowna had one.goal put to
her credit.   The half time came as
a pleasant relief after a hard battle,
the score standing  at two  to nil.
The 'arrival ''of' the  "Okanagan"
-dwindledJ down fthe> number   of
spectators, - but soon- .he-- teams
were hard at it again.     Smith was
still oncth<_'look   out  for a  good
shot in goal,  and  very soon  the
opportunity came. ,v The' harcUpart
was practically oyer now, and Kelowna held the day, as long as   she
could'defend her  own ^preserves.
The whole time score was four to
nil, and a good game  was, alas.at
an"end.    Penticton^played a 'good
game from start to finish, and   the
chances are, it may not be so easy
for our boys to win when they are
met in a "strange field.*   ''
The - Penticton team returned
soon after supper, and were > given
a hearty send off. Cheers being
given and received by those on
the wharf, and boat. The saying
of one of the finest schoolmasters,
a Rugby man, crept into the mind
as the little "Clo'velly" bore the
visiting team r home.' "We love
'em and lick em, but love them
first."

The meeting of the City Board
of Trade was held on Wednesday
night, a number of the members
being present, Mr. Pitcairn ,taking
the chair. , The minutes having
been read by the Recording' Secretary, Mr. McTavtsh, and adopted.
The chairman stated, that contrary to the general rules, he wished to make a suggestion:—Owing
to the correspondence taking so
much time, he would like to see
any fresh business taken up before
the letters were, read and gone into fully. Transportation had hitherto taken up much time, in fact
more thar^was due to it, as more
immediate'matters were at hand.-
He also wished to state . that the
Secretary had letters from various
people which were never read at
the meetings, he did not know this
until a few days ago', and thought
it his' duty to inform vthe ' other
members of the board of the' fact".'
These letters were' mostly frorri
land seekers, and he did not wish
to blame Mr. Kerr . forf keeping
them from the board, but he
would like the other members 'to
put forward their views. ' ''
Mr. Kerr in reply stated that
that the letters in question, asked
for information concerning the
temperature, as to whether chickens th'riv'edNvell Here", "or whether
there was much__tn,'in his opinion

The marriage took place ( on
Wednesday last, ^ April 14th, of
Malcolm' McAulay and Lillie
Maud Bowers. The ceremony was
performed'at the v home of the
bride'ajparents at Pleasant Valley.
Mr. McAulay is one of the old-
timers of the Valley, having settled
in the Similkameen in the early
days. He now resides' at Keremeos, for which point 'the happy
couple left by Wednesday 8 boat.
'Quite a little .excitement was
caused by. the announcement, that
a Marathon race would be run
over a ten mile course in Kelowna.
The date set for'this event is the
24th of May, Victoria Day, and
entries are coming in,fast from all
quarters. The course, which is
open to all comers is from the
wharf to Stirling's orchard, turning
down by Pridham's orchard to-
ward8>the five bridges, thence by
way1- of the Vernon road to the
Benvoulin corner, this point will
mark the course about half way,
the second half being via Davy's
slaughter house up the new road
to Pendozi street, finishing up at
the starting point. The route will
be lined with, marshals-who will
tender very/soft drinks to the competitors, aud direct the course.
After the race an afternoon of
sports is suggested, and the whole
ought to afford quite a good time.
For the great race four prizes of a
substantial nature will be offered,
and as soon as the figures can -be
arrived at they will be made pnblic.
^»A'strong >committee has been
appointed to look after theA whole
affair, and it is likely that they will
approach the' A. & T. Association
at their 'meeting next Saturday
week, with a view to get their

A letter - frbm v Hewetson andL
Mantle was next read," with reference to obtaining some pfrthe diploma certificates won by Mr. De-
Hart at the Spokane show.' The
chairman was of the opinion that
these diplomas"wer<- the" property
of the Board of Tradej-and, that
they ought to" be left in the 'hands

thought fit. ,    r
Mr. DeHa'rt stated that the ''diplomas had been framed at his expense, and he was at present displaying them in his' real' estate

wished to distribute' them among

better to convince people of the

which we hove read remind us of Sheridan's
famous criticism of newspapers. "The newspapers! Sir, they are the most villanous,
licentious,     abominable,     infernal .
Not that I ever read them! No, 1 make it
a rule never to look into a newspaper,
and truly it would almost appear that some
ofthe bitterest opponents of Socialism went
so far as to make it a rule never to read
anything about it. So appalling, is the
general ignorance of its primary principles
that we have seen it described by such
adjectives as abominable, and infernal, by
one paper, and Utopian, by another, and
these notions are supped in like pap without
any chewing whatever by the man in the
street. As these descriptions emanate from
the opposition it is not necessary to disprove
both. Socialism is engaged in casting out
devils from our industrial system and it
cannot be reaaonably argued that she casts
them out by the power of Beelzebub.
If the other objection does not show a
clear grasp of the subject, it at least indicates that the writer is so astonished at its
high ideals that he cannot think it will ever
come to pass. To hint to such a i_an that
it is already coming to pass is t» immediately lead him beyond his'depth. But we
claim that Socialism ia being realized, and
, that there is a steadily growing social con-
' science, not only in this, but in most civilized countries today, and Socialistic legis
lation is being forced upon our national
assemblies.
The roads in England were at one time
owned by private individuals. But the free
use of the roads was i necessary for the
welfare of the people, and smash went the
I toll-bars. That was' Socialism. That was
interfering with the property rights of
individuals. • Some day the land question
will be settled in a similar manner, but the
time is not yet ripe. We are told that the
state should not interfere with the property
rights of individuals, but the- state does
interfere, and our city interferes. You
cannot put up a building in the city as you
like.' You cannot own an orchard without
having inspectors coming and telling you
what you have to do to keep down insect
pests. " Yes," you say," but the state and
the city only interfere with my 'property
rights in so far as they affect the well-being
D._.«_,_k1*f    an«l ___A-i IM what

would happen under Socialism, but the
principle would be more generally applied.
Is must be clearly stated, however, that
although, the private property rights of
individuals will be regulated in a Socialist
state' as they are now, the ownership of
private property will not be interfered with.
In one of -he.most recent outbursts
against Socialism (by Roosevelt in " The
Outlook ") this fact,- so elementary, is hopelessly and wilfully mangled. '
The public property which Socialists demand should be owned by the' people is
the p'toperty which Is necessary for the production and distribution of wealth.   This includes
7  the air, the wiler and tho land, the mines,
7, factories, railroads, mail, express, telegraph
'<" and telephone service,' light, water and
7; heat plants, stores, etc., .o that private
£>;! monopoly,'and Graft, Rent, 'Interest and
V7 Pro8t will b-'abolished, and all may have
'[:>' the full prodUoJ of their labor.   Of course,
- /nobody has cbmered the air, yet, but why
7' should they not > l Any argument ag-inst
i' the private dWnterthip of air" is equally
7 'powerful 'against the ownership of land
-'* and water by private 'persons.   Yet men
%;, seek, not only to own the earth; but they
{«'Kactually claim the rain from heaven, which1
Zr-God, in his bountiful morcy/bestows u£6n
A th^scmS-arid region.  But you say, "Grant-
f 'ed that the natural resources should be'
\^ collectively owned, An What grounds' do
£' the'Socialists' claim that factories, mines;
IftsnUondo, _ore», etc., should be owned by
, .'the community?"   The basis of the claim is
'"'■ that these things have All been produced
'-, by the workers themselves.   But, we are
|>; told» the workers didn't produce^ the nee.
,7 "ettwtfi tmmey to make and build the**
_  msdib^'factories, railroads,_te.   This is
ed out long ago by John Stuart Mill.
People forget that the machinery of production in use today has been practically
all made within the last ten years, out of
the profits of the last ten years which'have been
taken from the workers.
Moife6\_r, the money that is owned- today by capitalists did not exist centuries
a_6;' as 'some. would have us believe.
Under thepresent system capital is continually reproducing capital. The Duke of
Westminster today is not living' on money
he 'inherited from his great great grandfather, who ..inherited it from his great
great ancestor, who originally stole the
land from the people. Not at all. He is
living today on the rents of today which
have been earned by the xoorkers of today.
A man in business ten years is not work-
on the capital he started with, but he is
working this year on the profits of last
year.    Let us illustrate the point. \
Approach a contractor ih a town who is
giving orders to some workmen, and say to
him:
" Why do you order those men about
like that?"
" Oh," he replies, " because I pay them
three dollars a day."
"Where do you get the money from
with which to pay them ? "
" I sell houses."
" Who builds them ? "
" The workmen.*'
"Then why don't they own them ? "
" Because I have to furnish the money
for the raw materials."
"Where did you get that money? "
" 1 sold houses last year."
"Who made the houses you sold last
year?"
" The workmen."
And so you would find that the so-called
capital in use today is really the product of
the workers' toil. Hence the claim of the
workers for the machinery of production
is only a claim for what they have created
and what belongs to them by right.
Whether a Socialist state would compensate the owners or not would be a matter
for the people to decide when the time
comes to take over the public property.
We are only concerned in proving that it
belongs to the workers, and in the event
of the present owners being forced to'give
up their claims, we cannot see .anything
unjust or immoral in it, as we are unable
to believe that God brought a few men
into the world ready booted and spurred,
to ride, and millions-ready saddled and
bridled, to be ridden.;

A National Theatre.
-The Wooing of the Woodcock. -
The wooing ol the woodcock is oue
of. those sights to witness which ,i
lover of nature in all its moods will
make a journey of miles. The scene is
enacted at twilight, and the setting Is
of willow or alder bushes whose
branches are just beginning to show
the tender green of enrly spring' Slid
denly from tbe damp ground a bird
'form shoots upward like some swamp
spirit until it Is outlined against th.-
gray of the evening sky. Then It clrcle-s
above the branches, and the song of
the wooing liegius. Hidden- in the
darkness of the thick lower growth is
the object to which this love son« is
directed The. bird above circles per
haps a score of times, then drops back
to tho damp thicket, making n_soun<l
which can be likened only to tbe drop
ping of water into a woodland pool
Again the bird soars nnd circles, pinging still the love song. This is repeated time after time until the last gleam
of light has faded nnd 'night- darkness conies down.
It has been decided that a national
theatre shall be built in London, and a subscription list has been started. A gift
of $350,000 has been promised by an
anonymous person and quite a few other
promises of smaller amounts have been
made. An estimate puts down the
amount wanted at two and a half million
dollars, to be alloted ine the following
manner: For the site $500,000, stage and
equipment $250,000, endowment $1,250,-
000.
The theatre is to be called the Shakespeare National Theatre, and will be opened in 1916, but subscription lists will be
closed in 1911.
Mill Hill Blaze.
Quite exciting times attended a disastrous fire which occurred at Mill Hill
Grammar School, and it was lucky that
the boys were away on a cross country
run, otherwise the blaze might have been
responsible for a greater disaster. The
fire started in the basement and with
alarming suddenness attacked the large
class room, and several of the smaller
ones. The school is about 100 years old
and was considered one of the finest
buildings in the locality. It was only
owing to the quick attendance of the fire
brigade, that the scoool was not completely gutted.
Death of Sir Edward Boyle.

Lord, Bere-ford Gices up Command
■ Lord Charles Beresford who has for
the past nine years had his flag flying as
Commander-in-Chief of the Channel fleet,
has given up command.
The commander took leave of the fleet
off'Portsmouth amid stirring scenes. The
battleship King Edward VII got under way
off Portland and steamed slowly down the
line of battleships and cruisers. As each
ironclad was passed, the bluejackets, who
were lining the sides, threw out their
farewells in cheers, mingled with the refrain of "Auld Lang Syne." Lord-Beresford stood on the  bridge  of  his  flagship
and »cknQw!edged__the_ farewell of—the-
fleet. ,
Landing at Portsmouth, Lord Beresford
had to encounter a fresh crowd, and it
was only with great difficulty that the
carriage containing the commander was
able to proceed to the station.
At Waterloo, London, a crowd had congregated to witness the arrival, and the
efforts of the police were completely overturned. As the train bearing Lord Charles,
steamed into the station the crowd broke
through the barriers, and it was only after
some time that the commander was allowed to mount his motor car, which drove
off among the cheers of warm' hearted
Londoners.

in the Indian Mutiny. • The Bolton Veterans
United Association drew the attention of
the War Office to the fact that the medal
had not been received, and found that his
name had been accidently missed by that
department when compiling the list. Waplington saw service as a private soldier
in the mutiny withthe 6th Royal Regiment.

A Review representative was told
a yarn yesterday which it is hard
to swallow, and yet the narrator has
a reputation for veracity. The story
goes that new settlers in the district
planted a lot of trees last year and
planted a large proportion of them
upside down. This spring they
carefully pruned the roots and are
at a loss to know why the trees are
not thrivin£f.---Summerland Review-
While walking through a patch
of brush hear the foot of Liong
Lake, where he is getting out logs
for Johnston & Carswell's mill,
' Isaac Johnston felt something clinging to his leg, thinking it a piece of
brush he was about to detach it
with a sweep of his hand, when to
his horror he found a three-foot
rattlesnake of the diamond species
clinging to the back of his leg a little below the knee. He killed the
reptile, and upon rolling up the
heavy mackinaw pants with which
his legs were clothed, found that
the fang had punctured the skin.
He at once made tracks for Oyama
where the wound was treated by
Dr. Irvine. It is pretty safe to say
that had it not been for the heavy
nature of the material in his trousers Mr. Johnston, would have had
a hard fight for his life. He says.
that since he has been: logging on
this section of the lake he has
killed hundreds of rattlers from little creatures out of the egg to monsters three and four feet long and
as thick as a man's wrist.—Weekly

Definitions and axioms in " Euclid for
Suffragettes,"-published in Messrs. Hath"
ard'a literary circular, are smart and amusing:
Here are a fewof them:
A" rush " has magnitude but no point.
A woman who is equal to three months in
Holloway, is equal to anything.   ,■
A " demonstration" consists of a series
of plain figures bounded by no laws, to
whom all wrangles are right wrangles.
A " rumpus " in which unemployed and
suffragettes are equal is said to be a "regular
rumpus."   -
Two suffragettes who meet at any point
cannot contain themselves.
During a raid a policeman may be drawn
from one point to any other point.
Lioerpool's Experience.
Prior to A. D. 1890, in the streets of
Liverpool drunkenness and its attendant
vices were so conspicuous as to make that
city almost notorious and arouse the authorities to the necessity of reducing the
number of licenses and enforcing existing
law more strictly. This has been done, and
Liverpool, the greatest seaport in the world
is now one of the cleanest and most law-
abiding cities in the United Kingdom.
From the license records of Liverpool
we quote the following: .   1

It will be noticed that there was a considerable increase in the number of persons
arrested for drunkenness in 1903 and 1904,
but in 1903 and 1904 the population increased from 684,958 to 716,810, and during the
entire period of reduction the city grew
from a population of-629,598 to 716,810.
Notwithstanding this increase in population, the cutting off of 486 licenses resulted
in a reduction of the number of arrests for
drunkeness from 14,680 in 1890 to 7,507 in
1904.
It should be stated that the chief constable
of Liverpool says:
"I venture to state that the increase in
prosecutions in 1903 and 1904 is proof, not
of increasing number of offenses, but of
stricter administration of the law."

the black spot, on the Mersey into one of
the soberest of the great English towns." "~
'That the principle of license reduction is
effective when applied to a large city is fully
established by the experience of Liverpool.
That it is equally effective when applied to
the more extended area of England and
Wales is indisputably proven by the blue
books,. "Judicial Statistics," page 18, and
"Licensing Statistics." page 3, issued by the
Government of Great Britian.
The Lord's Prayer on a Pin.
Probably we have all heard of one-dollar"
gold pieces with the Lord's Prayer engraved
on one side.   Several years ago these were
worn by many as watch charms. < Occasionally even now one may be seen thus worn.,
Such ' minute    engraving   may   well   be •
considered skilful work.
,  But recently this has been made to seeth,
at least by comparison, quite a simple matter
(says a writer in the January  "St. Nicholas"), because Mr. William L. Stuart, ayourig''
man engaged in business in New York City,,
has performed the seemingly impossible feat
of engraving the^gsntire Lord's  Prayer on i
the head of an ordinary pin.to which he has
added his ndtnesnd the year, making altogether two hundred and seventy-six letters arid
figures.1 .•..■-''•'..       - '
' , Mr. Stuart did the uwork at odd times,
during his regular employment, and with
very ordinary tools which seemingly are not
adapted to such, line engraving. The pin
was set in a block of wood, and a common
engraver a tool was used. A simple micro-
scope, costing only about twenty-five cents,''
and known as a "linen tester,", furnished the'
necessary magnifying. .'

Saoed a Child's Life
,      -        * .
Only through remarkable^ presence of
mind was engineer Arthur Denman of the
CP.R., able to save the life of a two-year-
old'child. The west bound Boundary train
was travelling at a good speed towards Riverside Avenue crossing, Grand Forks, when
a little child was noticed by the engineer to
be on the crossing. Denman knew he could
not apply the brakes in time, and at once
threw open the throttle and reversed the
engines. The escape was hairbreadth even
then, for as the train drew up the little girl
was actually against the cow-catcher.

The Cricket in the Ring
^.:   j ' ' i'
^ In Philadelphia's Chinatown there is a
Pekingese set that pursues cricket fighting
madly. Cncket fighting, a national sport in
the Celestial kingdom, is odd to see.
'Crickets are trained'. They 'are exercised
and dieted, and daily, before a match smaller, weaker crickets are' opposed to them,
that they may workout for themselves good
fighting systems.
<ln matches the betting is very high. The
Chinese who are tremendous gamblers,often
lose fortunes over crickets, as American
millionaires lose fortunes over racehorses.
A'good cricket fight will last half an hour.
" The opposing crickets, each in a tube
like a box stall, are dropped 'into a ring
with a wall around it about six inches high.
;A^ combatant,,, to win, must throw,his
rival over^this walLfclean. out^of the ring.
; Tiny bells are rung by the seconds. These
bells have a peculiar timbre, and excite
the crickets to a very frenzy of fighting. \
.< A cricket with a good record ,will sell for
five, or, ten dollars, while champions often
fetch fifty dollars. . ,
.Coast Steamer a Total Loss.
The San Francisco Pacific Co.'a steamer,
Indiana,'is reported ashore at Megdclena
Bay, wtth fourteen feet of water in her
hold.' ,The passengers and their baggage
have been transferred and landed safely on
the mainland. The owners of the ill-fated
vessel consider her a total loss and value
her cargo at $500,000.
Prairies Will Haoe Telephones.
The use cf the telephone has become
so general, and the towns that have had a
telephone system installed have grown so
rapidly, that the governments of Manitoba
and Alberta have each decided to undertake the^uildingof 800 miles of telephone
lines in the most needed places.
Japs Fire on Train.
Three Japanese were" charged at Vancouver with firing on a'C. P. R. train as it
was proceeding east/ The passengers in
the train had a narrow escape, as the.*Japs
emptied their revolvers in quick succession,
and it was quite by mere chance that, nobody was killed. The, evidence showed
the" affray to be the result of a drunken
spree.

voyage from" Lyttleton,   New  Zealand, to
Cape Royd, at which point Shackleton left
the ship on October 29th.' 1908, in company with Lieut. Adams, Enc Marshall
and Lieut.i'Shirk, to travel, further south
over the huge fields of ice. Manchurian
ponies were used to draw the sleighs, and
also to supply food for the explorers.      ',
After a perilous journey a point 111
miles, from the pole was reached,. and
owing to fatigue and lack of sufficient
food supplies, the travellers were bound
to turn back. The nearest point reached
by other explorers waa 450 miles from the
pole. Shackleton having t explored r 340
miles south of Scott's expedition  in -1902.
The return journey was more difficult
and four of the Manchurian ponies died.

The expedition has discovered ~ new
mountain ranges and volcanoes and will
prove to have made valuable additions to
our geographical knowledge. _ Records of

the opinion of Schackleton that the South
Pole can be reached.^.,, j a ,    ~    ,.
The Queen sent congratulory telegrams,
to the,explorers when'she heard the news
and the Victorian Order was confered on
Lieutenant Shackleton.
A list of the famous expeditions to the
South Pole may not be out of place.
In 1774 Cook reached a point 1200 miles
from the pole.   . ,'    _     ' * >
In 1823 Weddell came within 1050 miles.

The Elephant Fleet. '
Its elephant fleet is one of the strangest
and most deadly departments maintained
by the British Government in India. It is
a large fleet of coasting steamers specially
built for the transport of elephants.
India's population is one-fifth that of 'the
entire globe. All these people'use elephants.
They use them for draught.work and for
tiger hunting, and in the arenas of the native
States they even pit them against one another
and against wild beasts. The elephant fleet
transfers the animals from Dacca, the trapping and, training headquarters, to the various
districts'whence comes the demand.'
To get an elephant aboard ship is a difficult and dangerous task.' The animal m.ust
wade through the surf to a stout raft, and
this unknown surf, so white and tumultuoes,
often terrifies and maddens him. If in his
fury he slaughters a mahaut or two,,he
cannot be greatly blamed.        > „ ~ i
Once on the raft, his legs are tied to pegs,
and the'.slow'sail to,the ship is uneventful.
L. ,But now a great band must be arranged
under the elephant's, belly, < and a, crane
must hoist hin^u^aome twerttjr or thirty
feet to the deck, here again the elephant
cannot be jet down aa intractable if, losing
his head in that unprecedented-aerial journey, he murders some.more mahouts. >' '
?' Very prosperous,albeit stained a little with
mahout's blood, the elephant fleet for many
years has plied up,and down the Indian
cqast, embarking 'and disembarking its
heavy, unmanageable., freight. *'

Record Essay Contest
For the Boys and Girls
of Kelowna and District
We are anxious to interest everyone in the columns of The Record,
and in this endeavor we must not forget the boys and girls. There is
often a good deal of literary talent lying dormant in the young people
and we want to give them a chance to show what they can do in this
direction.
We have therefore decided to offer two prizes each month for the
best essay written by any boy or girl under sixteen upon a subject
which we will announce each month. The first contest will be held
during the month of April, as follows:—
ESSAY CONTEST No. 1.
First Prize
Second Prize
$2.00
$1.00
There are hundreds of boy and girl readers of The Record on the
prairies who would like to hear of the good times which the young
people of Kelowna have during the summer months, so the above
prizes will be awarded for the best imaginary letter from a boy or girl
in Kelowna district to a boy or girl on the prairie, on
"Summer Life in Kelowna,
From a Boy's (or Girl's) Point of View"
The essays should be sent in to the office not later than April 30th,
and the prize will be awarded upon receipt of the judge's decision.
Conditions:
The contestant must be under 16 years of age, and the composition
must be his or her unaided work.
Your Last Chance
To secure a beautiful half-acre
lot on Glen Avenue at the exceptionally low price of $800.
If not sold by the end of April
the price will be raised.

Mr. Elliott wanted to know if 5,000
pamphlets was enough, he was, of the
opinion that the whole of the $500 granted
by the council was to be spent on pamphlets.
Mr. Rose pointed out that it was not the
intention of the Board of Trade to spend
all the money on these pamphlets, and had
estimated that 5,000 would be enough,, if
if that was the case why buy more than
i3 needed. As the committee was in the
hands of the Board of Trade, more
pamphlets could be got if they desired it.
A specification was next read from Mr.
Hudson asking if the board would like to
put up two frames in the CP.R. hotel at
Sicamous. A suitable place had been
selected, and he proposed filling the frames
with local views. These frames would be
75" x 40" and would contain twelve views,
each one 8" x 10". The cost being $45.
He guaranteed them being hung in a conspicuous position.
Mr. Elliott thought a better place for
these views would be in Winnipeg.
Mr. Taylor proposed, seconded by Mr.
Stirling that the purchase and location be
left in the hands of the publicity committee.
Mr. Knowles put forward a suggestion
that as the name Sicamous could not be
changed to Okanagan Junction, would it
not be best to approach the C.P.R. with
reference to putting up a board with some
such words as, "Do not leave the Okanagan without seeing Kelowna," or that some
sign or board be placed in a conspicuous
position saying that Sicamous was the
junction for Okanagan, and enumerating
the various stations in the Valley.
The chairman pointed out that the idea
had already been referred to the C.P.R.,
__t it might be as well to urge   it  further.
The name of Mr. L. Hayman was mentioned, and it was proposed by Mr. McTavish that he be asked to become a
member of the Board of Trade. The
proposition was carried.
At this juncture the meeting was closed
no other immediate business being on
hand.
