City Council
Police Report Presented  - Aquatic Association Change of
Plans Causes Heated Discussion.
. A meeting of the city council
was held last Monday. The Mayor .and a full attendance of Aldermen were present. .The minutes
of the previous meeting having
been adopted, the Mayor informed
the council that Mrs. Josselyn, on
behalf of the Ladies' Aid had asked for permission to, use the city
park for a Strawberry Social next
Friday. Permission/was given on
condition that the refuse left was
cleared up.
The clerk then read the following correspondence.
G^A. Fisher,  re  insurance   of
electric light plant. " Filed.
-    H.  Barnes,  re  appointment as
fireman at Power House.
'     " H. J. Jones, Mandeville Co.,  re
electrical supplies.    Filed.
Hewetson and Mantle, enclosing
cheque paying insurance on Power
House fire.
. Pump and Water Wheel Co., re
water power.
The Dominion Securities Co., re
debentures.
-  Monetary Times; re damage and
particulars of Power House fire.\
A letter was also read from the
Boiler Inspector, saying he had inspected the. power house" boileTS
and that they had been fitted with
new valves, etc. They had also
been tested up to 150 lbs., and a
certificate would be.given for 125
lbs. to the square inch.
The police report was then read
and much discussion arose ' as „to
transferring of the license of the
Royal Hotel. Chief Hidson ppint-
ed out that in the change or .a
license thirty days notice ought to
- be given through the press, of the
proprietor's., intention to transfer
license. This had not been done
in the case of the Royal Hotel, and
he thought some action should, be
taken in the matter. The matter
was left in the hands of the chief
to see that the laws were complied
with.
Several member of the Aquatic
Association were present, .and
when called upon,' Mr. G. Rose, in
an opening speech made reference
to the work that had been started
that day. He showed that -the
Mayor had stopped progress owing
to some hitch, and he would ask
the Mayor to explain the reason.
The Mayor gave his opinion
that the work was not being done
according to the plans shown the
council, and because of this he had
called one or two Aldermen to-
gether and had asked their opinion,
they thought the same as he did,
and it was decided not to allow
the building to proceed.
Aid. Elliott wished to know why
three Buildings were in course of
erection when the plan put before
the council only provided for one.
He understood that the plan originally shown the council had been
modified, but did not understand
that modification to the erecting of
three buildings.
Mr. Rose said the original plans
had been modified and that
the change had'* been shown
to the building inspector, Mr. Cox,
and received his sanction. The
plan was shown to Mr. Cox- directly previous to the last meeting, and
it was agreed upon at that meeting
that the plans submitted to Aid.
Cox should be accepted.
Aid. Elliott did not understand
<that three buildings had been
sanctioned by the council. He understood that the one main building had to be modified owing to
lack of funds. The building he
1 stated was to be a graceful one,
and the present cubicles that were
being built were not fit for the
city park.
Mr. G. Rose in reply stated that
he thought the council very unreasonable to kick at a building
already passed by the building inspector. They had wished to nave
bathing accommodation ready ih
two week's time', and had practically engaged Professor Wilkinson
to look after the accommodation
so provided. -
Aid. Cox wished to point out to
the council the true facts. Mr. Rose
he said showed him the plans and
he misunderstood about the outside buildings, but since looking
again at the plans he was of the
same opinion as before, that the
buildings were arranged properly.
As building inspector he wished
to resign his position. He pointed
out that the- directors of the Association were men"._with . brains the
same as the city council, and an
undeniable architect had been secured in the person of" Mr. Peters.
He did not like the action taken
by the Mayor and Aid. Elliott, and
the action taken by them was
was against his views.
The Mayor in explaining his
views said that in a conversation
with Mr. Biggar he was told that
the Association were building, and
that he (Mr. Biggar) had secured
the contract, and named a figure of
$700. He knew that $3,000 had
been agreed upon by the city
council and so went down to see
what work was being done. He
at once thought it would not do,
and the land was about 50 feet
further east than it should be.
The plan as submitted by Mr.
Rose was not in accordance with
the buildings that were going up,
and he thought it right to let the
council know this. He was a
shareholder in the Association and
did not wish to stop the progress
if the rest of the council agreed,
but .he considered that Mr. Cox
jjad unknowingly, stepped over the
mark when he accepted the plans.
The Mayor also remarked that the
city had a council and a park committee, and he did not see the use
of them if they were to be ruled
by Aid. Cox and Mr. Peters.
Mr. Crowley who was present
asked for Mr. Peters to submit the
plans. So far only a plan of the
cubicles had been shown, when
the plan of the whole structure
was 'submitted it would throw
more light on the subject.
Mr. Peters in showing the plans
said that - although the cubicles
only were being started now at a
cost of a little under $700, the
building would be put up at a
cost of $3,000. The idea in putting
up the cubicles first was ' in order
to start bathing.
Aid. Ball thought that the cubicles being away from the main
building would be better from a
sanitary point of view. There was
more and better, light and the club
house would not be attended by
the odour from damp cubicles.
The question of position was
also gone into. The Aquatic Association admitted that they were
in the wrong with reference to
locality, as a first locality had been
given.
Mr. Meugen's said that no notice
had been given of a change of
position, and the original position
was chosen in a spot where no
trees would have to be cut down.
They did not know the locality
had been altered by the park committee until that day.
Mr. Rose objected to the stand
that the city council were making,
and the Mayor objected to the
position the Assoc, were taking
in the matter. The matter was
then allowed to drop, but upon
being afterwards taken up again,
it was the general opinion of the
Aldermen that the matter should
be referred to the.park committee.
Aid. Elliott thought the remarks
made by the Association at this
meeting were uncalled for, as the
council had done all in their power to urge the matter on.
Mr. Rose contended that instead
of urging the matter, on, obstacles
were being put in the way by the
council. Mr. Cox as building inspector had p&ssed the plans as
sensible and adequate.    . .
Aid. Elliott said it was the decision
of the people connected to 'do
nothing to. deface the park, and
he did not like to see an ungainly
building going up.
Mr. Rose refused to allow the
buildings to be called ungainly
and called attention to the tents
belonging to'the Lake View Hotel
as being far more ungainly than
the Aquatic building. In the course
of his speech he remarked, "We
are not trying to deceive the council. We are putting up the three
buildings for sanitary as well as
financial reasons."
It was- finally agreed that the
park committee should .meet two
of the Aquatic Association directors and settle the matter hi building and site, on Tuesday morning
at 10 a.m.
Chief Hidson attended and informed the council that he had
been looking about for a room and
had only been able to find the
room in the Keller Block. He
thought it advisable for ' him to
take this and make an office .as
well as a sleeping appartment.
Very often private conversations
had been carried on in the'council
chamber, and had to be . stopped
owing to someone entering. If' he
had his own office it would relieve
this matter. The rental was to be
$10 a month, and sufficient room
could be had for Mr. Burne to use
as a court room. The council
agreed to this, and decided that
the furniture should be provided
to make a* good room for the
chief, also that the rear part
should be used as an office.
The Police report for May was
then read. The following cases
were were arrested • during the
month, one drunk, one drunk and
disorderly, one vagrancy, one
cruelty to animals, one whisky
to Indians and one confidence
man. _ In the case of the latter
the chief upon searching found a
pack of marked cards and loaded dice. The magistrate gave
the defendant six hours to leave
the town. A lengthy report was
also received about the bad language used on the veranda of the
Royal Hotel, and the chief called
the attention of the council thatthe
License Commissioners ought to
look into the matter before any
conviction was made. A lengths'
discussion arose as to the tranfer-
ring of license from Mr. Wheeler

Fire Brigade Hold
Meeting
First Regatta of Season
'al Naramata
Two Runaways
Iwo senous runawaj's are reported this week. As a rig containing- Mr. and Mrs. Walker and
child and Mr. Bell, of South Okanagan was proceeding home, the
tongue got separated from the neck
yoke and caused the tongue to
drop. The team getting scared,
started off and Mr. Walker was
thrown out of the rig. Soon several
people- were-rushing—after^the
buggy, and Mrs. Walker tried to
hand her child over the back to
someone. The followers however
were unable to keep pace with the
team. Turning McCurdy's corner
Mr. Bell managed to. jump from
the rig, and planting his feet in the
ground tried to force the team to
stop and was dragged seyeral
yards hanging on to the lines. The
rig then turned over throwing Mrs.
Walker and child out, and" nearly
falling on top of Mr. Bell. The
team then went on unattended
with upturned buggy, but was soon
recaptured. Strange ' to say the
rig suffered no serious hurt, and
the occupants escaped with only a
few bruises.
Another runaway occurred last
Monday, when Miss Violet and
Miss Amler Wheeler were driving
around in their dog cart and small
Shetland pony. Passing two
cyclists the pony* became scared,
and turning down Ethel Street
started off at a bolt. Miss Violet
was thrown out, and Miss Amler,
the younger of the two was left
alone, and was subsequently
thrown out in Glenn Avenue. The
pony then ran into a fence and
stopped. The Misses Wheeler,
however, were not hurt beyond a
few bruises, and the rig and pony
were not damaged.
A meeting of the Fire Brigade
was held on Tuesday last in the
Fire Hall, when Mr. Elliott representing the city council was present. • The attendance of the members was good and much discussion
arose as to the present standing of
the fire brigade.
Mr. Elliott informed the members that the council had decided
to find another room for hief
Hidson, and that the room at
present occupied by the chief
would be fitted up for the use of
the brigade. The council wished
two men at .least to sleep there
and one man at least to be in attendance during the evening.
The account which was presented, to the council was next brought
up, and generally discussed. Chief
Samson did not wish to press the
matter, and said the brigade were
willing to forego the $ 1 7 for the
false alarm given by him to. see
how quick the boys could turn out,
he was also willing to accept $40
for sprinkling the streets and also
fifteen dollars for looking after the
hose.
Mr. Elliott asked him why he
did not agree to this at the council meeting. Mr. Samson contended that he did, and that it was
turned down by the council.
Mr. Jenkins then produced -a
copy of the "Record" and based
several- arguments on what had
been reported at the meetings Mr.
Samson had attended. He wished
to know why it was reported • that
the council were dealing with Mr.
Samson, and not with the fire brigade. If they had not explained
.their grievances to their chief, and
their chief explained it" to the
council, hoyr else were they to do
it. He had heard that, the council were not satisfied with the chief,
and asked the reason why.
Aid. Elliott said the chief had
done several things without the
consent of the city council, and he
did not" think the council were
being treated fairly. They had
voted $25 for the boys to go to
Vernon, the money to come out of
the fire and water estimates, a decision Mr. Elliott thought unjust.
The council further were: ready tb
supply any legitimate equipment.
Orders had been sent for goods
that had not turned up, and it was
not the fault of the city council
that they had not come to hand.
As far as the false alarm given as a
test was concerned, he refused to
O.K. the bill for that.
Mr. James wished to know how
the brigade were to test if no false

Aquatic Asssociation
Start Building
The Rev. Thos. Green will
preach at the Okanagan Mission
school house on Sunday afternoon
at 3 o'clock.
The Aquatic Association started
building cubicles last Monday, and
owing to the city council taking
objection to the locality and the
size of the structures, the operations
had to be stopped. The matter
was again brought up at the
council meeting, a detailed report
of which appears on this page.
The park committee met with
the directors of the Association
last Tuesday, and set out the exact
locality and decided that the cubicles at present under dispute
should be allowed, provided the
one on the east side was moved
about 200 feet to the west, practically on the point. A bluff on the
point to be the end of the boundary given by the city to the Association. The building will be
proceeded with' forthwith, and is
expected to be ready in about two
weeks' time. The structures are
to be painted a moss green to
harmonize with the foliage, and
club house will be proceeded with
as soon as the cubicles are finished.
The action of the Association in
setting out the cubicles first is
highly commendable, as the time
is near at hand when a swim in the
lake is practically a necessity as
well as a luxury.
The first regatta on the lake this
year was carried through successfully at Naramata last Thursday.
Despite the rain which was falling,
and the cloudiness of the sky all
round, quite a fair crowd left the
wharf by the Aberdeen, the war
canoe boys, full of hope, being
■among the passengers.
Mr. J. M. Robinson in a speech
remarked that the regatta was
about to be opened. He also hoped
to formally open up Naramata
as a summer resort. The preparations which had not been as far
advanced as Mr. Robinson and the
committees wished, but which
everyone else considered excellent,
were promised to be better on the
26th of July, the date fixed for the
second regatta.
Dr. Bulyea, Lieutenant Governor
of Alberta, in the course of a long
speech generally praised the Okanagan Valley as a whole, and
remarked that it was marvellous
the amount of men from the
prairie who were coming in to the
various cities. He then declared
the regatta open.
The speeches being through, the
yacht handicap, the first race of
the afternoon was called. The
event which covered over an hour
caused great excitement. The
war canoe race which caused perhaps the most excitement of the
afternoon should have fallen to
Kelowna, but owing to so many of
the regular crew being absent,
substitutes had to be found. Although Kelowna did not pull off
the event they ran a good second
behind "Summerland, and it is
likely that when the full team is
mef in these water the opponents
will wonder what is up. In the
single canoe race the Kelowna
boys were well to the fore. L. C.
Aviss and Harvey both of our
town pulling off the 1 st and 3rd
prizes respectively. In the double
canoe race two Harvey's scored
third place. An amusing race was
a canoe race in which the paddles
were supplied, a soup plate being
given each competitor as a paddle.
In this race Wilgress secured third
place.
After the regatta many attended
the amateur show "All a Mistake,"
given by the Naramata Stock Co.,
and which was pronounced as a
first-rate performance by those who
had the pleasure to attend.
Ball learn Now Heads
the League
Last Thursday an interesting
game of ball was played in the
City park, a fair attendance of
spectators being present. Armstrong, the opposing team came
down by the afternoon boat and
had a short practice before the
game started. The shade afford-;
ed by the trees in the park certainly made the ground more
pleasant for the spectators, but the
diamond that that had been previ-
ouslyprepared for the ball team was
certainly not to be compared to-
the ground the team was used to

At last the fire brigade seem
to be on the right road to make
some definite understanding
with the council. Their desire
to remain a voluntary brigade
is a noble one, and they now
seem to see the matter in a
different light to what they
did some weeks ago. They
are satisfied that they are
working as citizens for the city,
and not for the city council
alone, and it is likely that every
assistance will be forthcoming
from the citizens.
The council have promised
them all the equipment they
ask for, and should they want
an outing or a little money
subscribed to take them to a
neighboring town to compete
in a hose and reel race, the
funds could be easily raised
around town, instead of having
a small sum taken out of the
fire and water estimates, to
provide for the fare of the
team and their expenses. The
brigade has always been looked upon by the citizens as a
body of men ready to do their
utmost in case of fire, and usually have-to work under very
annoying cirumstances. Take
the Palace Hotel fire for instance, ordere were ^ being
given here, there and/ everywhere, by people not connected with the brigade, and it is
small wonder that the brigade
became somewhat annoyed.
It is a pleasure to see the
chief spoken so highly of, and
it is only a man who is held
in such high' esteem by his
comrades that can successfully
govern a body of men. It is
to be hoped that the arrangements that are made with the
council on Friday will smooth
off any ill feeling or antagonism
on either side, arid the little
"rub up" now past will make
the brigade put double energy
into their already efficient service, and the council will do on
behalf of the citizens, what is
-in—their—power^to=helpi=the"
brigade along.
any other portion of the lake.
The good hotels and bathing
facilities usually go hand in
hand to make all good watering places, and both can now
be found in Kelowna.
Chief Hidson is to be congratulated upon his police report this month, and his action'
in ridding the town of two undesirable card sharpers must
be put as a feather in his cap.
Very little goes on that our
chief does not see or know
about, and although he at times
has to make himself objectionable to some individuals in the
cause of justice, yet there are
times when we see the wisdom
of his plans. It is a difficult
matter for the chief of police to
keep on friendly terms with
everyone and at the same time
to do his work properly. It is
in the nature of things that an
official so placed should make
make some enemies, and those
who are anxious for the welfare
oi the town should render all
the help they can, and forbear
throwing out objectionable and
unreasonable criticisms simply
because they feel hurt at some
course which has been taken
by the chief.

Editor Orchard City Record
Dear Sir,
I feel it my duty in justice to
myself to clear up a matter which
seems to be causing some unpleasant comment.
At a meeting held by the city
council on June 7th the matter- of
fixing the rate of wages per day
for laboring men was brought up
by one ofthe Aldermen, and discussed at considerable length,
without arriving at any final decision.
As there was a large amount of
work to be done on the park,
streets, etc., and having an opportunity to know that we had
nearly fifty unemployed. men in
our city who could get nothing
whatever to do, I felt something
should be done to help those thus
unfortunate, until permanent employment could be obtained. I
pointed out that 1 would favor engaging as many of these men as we
could possibly provide work for
at $2.25 per day, rather than paying a lucky half dozen $2.50 for
nine hours work, the rest enviably
sitting on the fence looking on.
Half a loaf is better than no bread.
To show how necessary and
urgent it was that those men should
be helped, I explained that Mr. D.
McMillan/through sympathy for a
couple of inexperienced old country men came to us and urged us
to try and give those two men
something to do. The matter of
wages they did not consider, as
much as getting a start and earning something. They thought
they coukTearnJ. 1.50per day and
w6uid~consider~it a great—favor if
we could give them a few days
days work at this figure. We had
all the help we required and only
consented to help them out, as we
thought them worthy of being encouraged. That was the only
mention made by me of $1.50 per
day.
Had the Press reported more
fully the circumstances, instead of
misquoting the words of Aid. Cox,
(who seemed anxious to make
capital of the matter), all fair
minded working men and ratepayers would realize that my policy
was for the general good of all
concerned. Certainly I did not
wish to oppress the worthy working man, neither make a good fellow of myself at the expense of
the already heavily taxed ratepayer.
Yours truly,
G. ROWCLIFFJ.

Now that the Aquatic Association have started their building, and the various hitches
are at an end, a few words in
praise of the project may not
be out of place. Away from
the financial aspect let us take
, a look at it from the point of
the traveler and the occasional
bather. The arrangements
are such that a single ticket
can be purchased, and a cubicle procured for the purposes
.;of dressing.    The action ofthe
> Association in going ahead and
> putting up cubicles is a praiseworthy one.    From a financial
Vstand point it is necessary for
s%.e"cubicles  to go  up before
pgbod faith on the part of the
^'directors,   when    they    start
EHjuilding bathing facilities  for
Kthe general public before they
restart their owndub house. To
h'ther traveller   and   occasional

THE CONCIERGE.
Tyrtint   Rule   of   the   Autocrat   of the
Parisian Flat House.
The "concierge" Is considered to be
.the bane of tho Parisian flat dwellpr's
existence.   His functions are supposed
to be the following:
The.first and most important is to
collect the rent on quarter-day. after
that he must see that the tenants do
not surreptitiously remove. The hitter
precaution seems to be somewhat unnecessary, as rents in Paris are always-
paid In advance.
He should also bring up your letters
nt least twice a day, but as the concierge Is generally a stout, middle aged
woman who has a decided objection to
climbing stairs the latter regulation remains souipwhat of a dead letter.
In Paris the front door of most
houses is generally closed at 10 o'clock.
After that time admittance can only be
obtained by ringing a bell. The concierge Is obliged to open the door, and
she does this, as soon as she is awake,'
by pulling a rope which hangs by her
bedside.
If she is a sound .sleeper and you are
accustomed to come home late at night,
the best thing to do Is to look for another flat, ns the concierge will put you
down^ as a "bad tenant" and make
things us uuplensiuit for you as possible.    -
If you never _st"i> out late at night,
receive very few friends find fee her
heavily at Christ inns, the concierge
will consider you ns a "good tenant"
until you give notice- to leave, when
her Interest in vou Middenly vanishes.
, As there Is nothing more to be expected from you and the Incoming tenant is obliged to give a.substantial" tip.
called a "denier a Dieu," she Is anxious to "speed the parting guest" as
much as possible.
The concierge does sometimes make
a final effort to extract something more
from you by attempting to make you
pay a franc for every nail knocked in
the walls of your flat, but this has been
decided to be illegal and may be safely
resisted.
But.the Parisian concierge is really
unpopular because she represents a
landlord.—London Mail.

A  DELAYED  LETTER.
And What Happened When the Missive
- Was Finally Recovered.
The vagaries of" the postal service
are sometimes beyond the understanding of the layman. In March of last
year a man In New York received a
letter from a friend in England, written when on the int of sailing for
Philadelphia, urgently''requesting him
to return a loan of $10. The man who
wrote the letter needed funds and
would the debtor kindly send . the
money to him, care of the steamship
line at Philadelphia? The man In New
York saw that his friend would reach
Philadelphia within a day or two, so
he promptly clapped a ten dollar bill in
an envelope and addressed and mailed,
it A. Week later he was apprised by
mail that:the money had not arrived.
Both men made a diligent search for
the missing letter. But it could not be
found. So the debtor gave his friend
a check and forgot about his $10, setting down its loss to the~~dlshonesty of
some intermediary who had handled
the envelope.
Imagine his surprise when one day
eight months later be received his letter from-the dead letter office in Washington. It - was. covered with postmarks and much battered, for it had
traveled many thousands of miles,
back to England, around the United
Kingdom and to America again, but
the money was safe Inside.
" Chuckling, be met his friend a few
minutes later and showed him the
ten dollar bill.
"How's that for luck?" he queried.   "
"Great," replied his friend. "Say. old
man, you couldn't lend me that for a
day or two, could you? It's like picking money up in the street for you, and
I could make use of it just now."
Sadly the bill was handed over

Imprisoned in a Lift
A curious accident occurred in Parr's
Bank, Fleet Street lately, and had it not
Been for the timely assistance of the
police, the accident might have proved
fatal. As a man was passing the building
he heard cries of a man evidently in great
agony. The police were quickly summoned but it was found that the bank
was locked, an attempt to gain entrance
was made but in vain. A messenger was
sent immediately to Bridewell station for
tools "with which to force open the door.
By the time the entry was made the cries,
had ceased but a search of the premises
found the night watchman pinned between,
the platform and the shaft. Before he
could be released it was necessary to saw,
away part of the lift to free one of his
legs. The man was immediately sent to
the hospital where he is showing signs of
recovery, but had it not been for the
prompt action taken by the police in all
possibility the man would have met with
a cruel death, i

Madame Nordica Retires
Madame Nordica gave a farewell concert before a crowded house last Friday.
The audience was so great that seats had
to be placed on the platform to accommodate them. When the singer appeared,
the crowd rose and cheered, and she received a memorable ovation at the close
of the program. The King and Prince of
Wales had engaged a row of stalls for the
performance, but were unable to be
present.
''   Robbed bi] Bogus Detectic.es
Paul Friest a powerfully built man of
Dutch nationality was charged at Marlborough Street police court with
being concerned.with two others, not in
custody, with obtaining by means of a
trick several watches, a chain,, six medallions, fourteen rings and several other
minor articles, the property of Wilhelm
Fredrich, a jeweller of Tottenham Court
road.-" Sam Goldstein said that about two
in the morning the men called round at
the boarding house and said they were
detectives.. One man was also introduced
as an interpreter, and, it transpired that
they were looking for a man with a large
moustache who lived there. Goldstein
admitted such a man being in the, house,
and went and fetched Fredrich, directly
the bogus, detectives saw the man they
explained, "That ia the man we want/'
and they then proceeded_to search the
room. They also aearcfltd under, thp

to the police station and asked what was
occuring, and was informed there that no

among nine men. The prisoner protested
innocence but was remanded.      4

generally agreed that although so near,
the public are in absolute safety from the
clutches of these kings of the beast tribe.

It is reported that a Customs

The house boat "Lily of the

Summerland, and will make a fine

A sad accident occurred at Celesta Creek Shuswap Lake last
week when Ira the third son of F.
N. Daniels loat his life by drowning.
The deceased was engaged with
a companion directing logs for the
Lamb Watson Co.- Noticing that
no logs were coming down the
creek Daniels and his companion went up the creek and
found a jam had occurred which
they broke. Anxious to get back
to his post the young man jumped
on a large cedar log and suddenly
the log rolled over throwing him
into the creek. Not being able to
swim the deceased stood no chance
for his life, and his companion
who was also a non-swimmer threw
himself into the water in his ende-
vor to save the unfortunate man, in
his gallant attempt he nearly caused his own death. Help was soon
fetched and a search was made for
the body, no trace however was
found and it is believed that the
body must have gone through the
schute and over the falls. The
lad was well respected and was a
member of many local lodges at
Armstrong. He had only been
married a little over a year ago
leaves a widow and a two months
old child. It was ■ only a short
time ago that deceased had left
Armstrong to camp on the Shuswap
Lake, and it was his intention to
make his home there, the deceased
carried insurance in the several
societies he belonged to and it is
at least a comfort to know that the
wife and child will be cared for.
A sad bathing fatality occurred
at Vernon last Friday at about five
oclock in the, morning. Mr .C.
Thompson a well known and well
respected citizen had made it his
usual custom to go for a swim
every morning and was usually
accompanied by his sons whom .he
made a point of calling every morning to accompany him. Owing
to the sons having been away late
on Thursday night Mr. Thompson
did not call his sons on the fatal
morning, but went down to the
water alone. Deceased was sub
ject of epileptic fits and as he was
entering he was aiezed with a fit
and fell in a few feet of water.
There was no assistance near at
that time of the morning, and it
was not until about an hour afterwards that the body of the deceased was noticed. Artificial respiration was resorted to but was found
to be of no avail. The sad death
has cast a gloom over Vernon and
all »-egret the loss of a trne and
well beloved citizen. .

J. Sandercock, of Sintaluta, had
the misfortune to have his farm
burned out last week. AH the outbuildings and stables were destroyed, but luckily the dwelling house
was saved.     -    •
The Lord Bishop of Qu'Appelle
has offered to the Rev. T. G. Beal,
vicar of St. Michael's, Grenfell, and
Rural Dean of Eastern Assinaboia,
the first Honoraiy Canonry in the
Diocese of Qu'Appelle. The Lord
Bishop visited Grenfell in connection with the appointment last
week.
Work on the Weyburn water
works commenced last week, contractor Murphy and about twenty
men having started operations.
The system will be continued into
the town streets later, connecting
with the reservoir south of the
town.
We do not believe that the church
should leave the field entirely alone to the
saloon-keeper to champion our laws. We
believe that as long as the saloon dares,
with brazen effrontery, to demoralize our
politics, that the church, with uprightness,
with a clear and serene countenance,
should enter the political arena to purify
it.—Rev. Father Gleary, Kenosha, Wis."
What is it that keeps the Irish people in
these low social conditions ? The Saloon.
Thither goes the money earned by the
sweat of the brow. Thence do men issue,
broken down in health and strength, to
swell the list of idlers and paupers. Our
disgrace and our misfortune in America is
the number of Irish saloon-keepers.—Bishop Ireland.
Don't sell liquor. I would rather see
any young man become a tramp and beg
from door to door, than to sell liquor for a
living. There is no meaner or more contemptible way *f getting a living than by
selling ' rum.—Rev. Father R. J. Barry,
Hyde Park, Mass.
One of the great blessings of No License
is, that it has crippled the power of the
saloon,—one of the most powerful, bold
persistent and audacious opponents to
what is good.—Rev. Father Thomas Scully,
Cambridge, Mass.
The saloon is the recruiting office of the
Devil, of blasphemy, and of infidelity. It
is the duty, flerefore, of all who love God
and the church, to oppose the influence of
the saloon.—Rev. Father C. J. Bums, Providence, R. 1.

evils in the liberties of our country and in
the politics of our country. Oh, the
meanness of our politics that will be
led by the grog-selling element!—Rev.
Father W. Elliott, C.P.S., of New York.
We who labor so hard to rid our mother
country of landlords and landlord iniquity,
ought not to become slaves of the rum-
lord, and bow to the iniquity of intemperance.—Rev. Father T. J. Conaty, Worcester, Mass.
Any American citizen who says it is
impossible for us to put down those evils,
to enforce the laws that - are upon the
statute books against the liquor interest, I
would say to him he ought to abdicate.
We are able to do it.—Most Rev. W. H.

Thrown Ooerboard by a Boat
v   " ' Thief.,
A strange case of a struggle in a small
boat comes from Vancouver. A. Carlston
a well know fisherman along the water
front, nearly lost his life in trying to save
his property from being stolen. The police
aroused by Carlston'. yells for assistance at
Sixth Street'Slip, at once went to the scene
and found him in the water, when pulled
out he said he had been asssaulted but did
know who his assailant was. He went on
to say that as he was about to enter his
boat, a man got up and. tried to steal it
away. They engaged in a struggle and
both fell in the water. No trace could be
found of the assailant. A man named
Wafoon, well'known among the folk, was
arrested later in ; connection with the
affair.
Indians Robbed btj White Men.
A case of robbery of land and money
from Indians comes Jo light by the sojourn
of- one) Frauk. Fleming, a secret, service
operator, at Yakatat, Alaska. He was
posing as a fisherman, and obtained evidence in that manner. Eventually he obtained sufficient'evidence against a man
named Hurley, to • have him arrested.
Yakatat bears the reputation of being one
of the most depraved towns in the Alaska
territory; men, women and children are
under the influence of drink constantly.
Many of the Indians have died' of pneumonia and exposure, caused by drinking
and remaining in the snow for the night.
Several Indians died in" a month as a result
of the drink evil ■ among the aboriginies.
The sums stolen from the Indians by white
men are reported as being enormous.
Delicate Work Done on Steamers
Shaft
A novel piece of marine workmanship
was done lately on the S.S. Ionic, of the
Northern Navigation Companies fleet of
package< freighters. When the steamer
reached Port Arthur it was found that her
shaft was so badly worn that it was not
pnssible to proceed with the.journey unless
something was done to strengthen it.
Divers were accordingly sent down to
estimate the extent of the damage and to
place hangers so that should the shaft
break it wold save the 'loss of the wheel.
The vessel then proceeded to Duluth under
her own steam, using the starboard wheel
only for stealing. In the Duluth''dry dock
it was found that the work would consist
of welding about five feet of new steel
shaft on to the propeller, which was a
heavy piece of work. The shaft which is
about forty fest in length, was taken out
and the new steel welded on. The operation was'one of the most important and.
difficult ones that has ever been experienced on the Great Lakes.
Site Chosen for Catholic Church.
The Mount Pleasant Catholics have decided on a site for their new church, which
is to be at the corner of Twelfth Avenue
Qyebec Street. It will be a two-storey
structure. The basement will be used as
a crypt, while the upper portion- will be
for church services. The building which
will be only a temporary structure, will
serve its purpose until the congregation is
able to erect a more commodious church.
The priest who will have charge has not
yet been named. Tenders for the building
have been called for immediately.

Painting Stolen and Returned.
A valuable original painting by Saivastor
Ross, was stolen out of its frame by some
daring thieves from the Laval University
Gallery at Qyebec. The picture which is
entitled " The Gamblers," was a small one
about 20" x 15" and had been cut out with
a pen knife. The picture was afterwards
returned by the city priest, and a statement made that the thief had confessed
his guilt and returned the paint/ng. Owing
to the ritual that surrounds confession in
Catholic Religion, no questions were asked
of the priest as to who or where the thief
or thieves are.
Americana Compete ih Cheese
Competition.
The Alberta' Provincial Exhibition that
will be held'soon at Calgary, has received
entries from all over the county for its
cheese contest. F. S. Hadler, a cheese
maker of Wisconsin haa made entries for
both large and small cheeses and has sent
his eqhibit to the Government cold storage
where it will be kept until the fair opens.
Entries have also been received from Vancouver, New Westminster, Toronto, and
various points in Ontario and Alberta.
C. P. R. Track Slides into Lake.
About 150 yards of C. P. R. track slid in
to the Hawk Lake about five miles east of
Kenora, Ontario s only a few timbers being
left. The traffic on the line was seriously
impeded, passengers had to be transported
and freight trains were unable to proceed
It is expected to take a few days before
the tressle work is up again. The C. P. R,
trains are now travelling over the Canadian
Northern tracks. The place has been
considered dangerous for some time by
trainmen. (
Edmonton Lumbermen Alarmed.
Lumbermen at Edmonton have become
alarmed at the rapid rise of the Saskatchewan. Owing to the floods, some millions,
of dollars worth of logs have -beeu lost in
the past three years and in spite of frequent applications,' the government have
refused to place a break' water across.
The conditions of affairs* are very precarious, five booms are expected to break any
minute and will mean a' great loss. Last
year all the booms broke loose, and a million feet of logs went adrift. The lumbermen managed to save about a quarter, but
the rest were lost.
Counterfeit Quarters in Circulation
at Calgary.
A number of counterfeit twenty-five
cent pieces have been put in circulation at
Calgary. The coins are such exact copies
that it is hard to detect them, and so far
the police have been unable to find out
the origin of the circulation. About the
same time as the circulation started Norris
and Rowea circus was at Calgary, and it is
thought that their presence had something
to do with the affair. The police have
not been able to associate one with the
other so far.
. Heaoy Damages Awarded.
The heaviest damages that have been
given lately for personal injuries were recorded in Vancouver last week. J. C.
Farquharson by a supreme court jury obtained the sum of $11,500 for injuries sustained, in a tram collision at Cedar Collage
last fall.
Great Fire at Winnipeg.
Fire has wiped out a large block, of
frame and~Veneer buildings belonging to
the Great West Saddlery Store. The
president bf the company estimates the loss
at $700,000, $70,000 of which is in the
building the balance in big stock and man.
ufactuing plant. Had a high wind been
blowing', more damage would have resulted as the adjoining blocks were practically
all frame and veneer buildings. The new
high pressure fire plant was brought into
existence for the first time and proved a
decided success.
Drowned'in Kootenau Lake.
" Word is received of the drowning of
Thomas Carlyle by the capsizing of a canoe
near his ranch in the Kootenay Lake district. The deceased was'a young man belonging to Newcastle, England, and owned
a fine tract  of  fruit  land to  the  east   of
Nelson.

Constable on Deadman's Island
Has Appendicitis.    %
• John Allen, one of the police constables
who were sent to guard Deadman's Island
and who was assaulted when the Kinnan-
Gartley forces attempted to gain possession
for the Ludgate forces has been suddenly
taken ill.' The doctor was sent for at once
and found Allen suffering from appendicitis
The sufferer was at once taken to the
General Hospital where an operation will
be performed.
Canners to.Haoe Free Tinplate.
It has been decided to admit tinplate into Canada free of duty, owing to the amount of material used by the canneries.
The matter has been in abeyance for about
six months and it was feared a duty might
be placed on the raw material that would
seriously injure the canners and force an
advance in the price of canned goods, and
would mean several thousand dollars more
outlay.—Morria'purg of Ontario—has-been
unremitting in their endeavours to <?et a
duty placed on stuff from the States, putting forward that they can supply all the
tinplate necessary, but it was afterwards
found they would hardly be able to provide for the whole trade and the result
would have been been forced importations
from the States at higher costs because of
the duty.
His Last Trip.
Andrew H. Thompson, ferryman on the
Columbia River, at Trail, was knocked off
his boat the other day by a revolving wire
gear while he was carrying passengers
across the stream. He was drowned bet-
fore assistance could be sent. The deceased is about sixty years of age and leaves a
wife and children. The high water in the
stream is supposed to be responsible for
the accident.
Chief of Police Resigns.
Owing to various citizens being dissatisfied with the work rendered the chief of
the police at Strathcona has resigned his
position, the resignition has been accepted
by the city council. Citizens were dissatisfied because he took a house in the outskirts of the city, and the criticisims and reports at the city council meetings led to
his resignition.
""      Stanley Man Drowned.
The death accured lately of Eugene
Flatt, who comes from Gardner, North
Dakota, as the result of a lark. He went
swimming with some friends and boasting
that he could float, attempted to do so. He
was drowned before any of his friends
knew what had happened. The body
will be'tent to his home at Gardner.

j Should Peaches be        >
- ' More7W»3ely Grown ?
_____
7 -f-t"---';.
The minds of the people in the  Okanagan will soon be aroused to the advisability
}f going  more  largely  into  mixed   fruit
(farming,  than  into  one  or  two  specific
y&rietiea of apples.    So' far  it  has  been
iderstood that peaches are  only  grown
fillers to orchards, and the crop so  ob.
ined haa been  scanty 'and  thin.     The
jfause of this has often been put  down to
ess of irrigation.   The  finest  types  of
Reaches have  been  secured  by  farmers
rho   have   made  extensive  experiments
[ith and without irrigation, and the  gen-
, opinion goes  to  show  that  it is the
nateuror ignorant farmer that should
hceive the blame.   So far the  cultivation
: peaches has not received the  same  at-
[sntton that the apple, pear, and perhaps
: cherry  have,  and  yet with  cannery
pssibilities, there is no doubt that the, at-
^ntion of the growers will soon be pulled
i the direction of this delectable fruit.   A
each   orchard   requires   more   nitrogen
. is generally supplied in  the  ground,
nd a light and frequent system of irriga-
i is'generally advocated.   The so called
riort life of a peach tree  is due  to  poor
Management   and   principally   along "the
aes of pruning.   The peach is very often
: first fruit to be produced by  the' am-
eur, this being his first experience in  ir-
gation cultivation and' marketing that "the
' results can be accounted for. "• More
Eudy should be given to the  market  de-
lands and distribution, and every locality
nould study its adaptabilities in" a case of
t glut or under supply in the market. The
oil in'which the peach 'grows  best is "a
;ht sandy loam, as well as  the  granite
i of the hills.. The'peach   is   an  early
floomei" and   is   therefore    more   often
aught by the frosts that would not" damps to any extent the apple or pear. crop,
le crop  requires very  careful  picking
rid - handling,   a    fact that   "makes  it
bore "difficult to haul the fruit very  great
listances.   There may however be a time
yhen the tramways will, supply  a  good
n .journey," and   the   fruit  could   be
ied.miles over  road-with  the  same
rtount of safety as is experienced by  the
> journeys both east  and  west.   With
: canneries' in  view,  a  great  demand
ay soon'crop  up  for'these  fruits  for
aning purposes.    The cannery will give
preference"" to  th?  cling varieties. . The
ellowiflushed  cling -stones will  be  the
lost "favourable   for   canning   purposes,
trhile the yellow free stone are to be prepared for shipping.   Asa general rule the
Jnost farmers desire to'keep to the  ehipp-'
tig variety, and consequently use the culls
and second-class goods for  supplying the
being to wait until  fruit is  at its  lowest
price', and then  buy  in   large  quantities,
good fruit at a discount, and in- the" event
of a business being made of  canning and
evaporating, there is little doubt that contracts  would   be   made   with   the   large
orchards for the whole supply of fruit at a
set figure.   Those that have old trees, and
have no crop this   year  will  do  well  to
head back rangy trees, so  as  to  produce
an abundance of wood for the next  crop.
Old trees that have been neglected can be
improved by cutting back the old branches,
and taking off practically the whole of the
top, after two years a good  tree  will  result with better bearing possibilities, and a
decided improvement in  the   fruit.     The
best peaches when sent to market are  always wrapped in  paper,   and   packed   in
twenty pound crates, and  at present  the
shippers can take and dispose of  all  they
can get.     When  the  canneries  come  to
business   and   possibly   an   evaporating
plant is put in, then will be the time when
peaches will be found of good marketable
value,   and  more  trees   required.     The
matter   then   will   be   more   extensively
studied by the farmer.

The Orchard City Record.
THursdag, June; 24 a..
City Council Meeting
Continued from page I.
to Mr. Grabell. The chief was ofthe
opinion that the license could not
be transferred without a notice being placed in the press for thirty
days, and an announcement made
before the license commissioners.
It was finally moved by Aid. Gox
seconded by Aid. Rowcliffe, that
the license commissioners be requested to see the hotels be required to comply with the Provincial
laws and City By-laws governing
licensed premises for the sale of intoxicating liquors befoteany renewal of licenses.
The chief had received several
complaints from persons witnessing
the baseball game last Thursday.
Upon entering the park, people
were asked for 25c. admission. He
understood the park was to be free
and only a collection taken up.
When he entered he was requested to pay 25 c. and upon mentioning who he was the collector looked very small. The council agreed
that the matter ought to be stopped
as the admission to the park was
free. They understood from Mr.
Eastman at the last meeting that a
collection would be made and that
no admission would be charged.
Mr. Mills attended and asked
leave to move his stable as the back
of the Oak Hall to his property
on Eli Avenue, and also to cut
necessary wires to allow the building to pass. Permission was granted on condition that D. Mills assumed all responsibility for damage
done, and that he bore all expenses
connected with cutting and repasr-
ing wires, all work to be done under the supervision of the building
inspector.
The following accounts were referred to the finance, committee to
be paid if found correct:
Vernon News Advertising  $7 20
George C. McGown Inspecting boilers 30 40
Mr. G. Rowcliffe reported that
in order to rush the work of the
power house, the Light committee
had given the contract for the construction of the power house to C.
G. Clement, the price being 15c.
per cubic foot, the city to supply
the cement and gravel.
The Mayor explained that the
plans and specifications had been
prepared by Mr. Thomas, and that
tenders for building should be in by
the 27th of the month.
Several aldermen thought it best
to call for both brick,'and concrete,
walls, and a general discussion as
to the best material to use in the
case of a fire.
Aid. Cox in advocating concrete
took the Fernie fire as his example
and stated that the concrete buildings stayed the fire better than the
brick. He also pointed out that
all the large buildings were made
of concrete and more especially
the largest elevator now in course
of erection, It was decided to call
for tenders for both brick and
concrete.
Aid. Ball wished to know if the
fuel would be protected, and the
bins placed right away in the building.
The Mayor was of the opinion
that the council ought to wait until
more money was available before
they put in bins.
Aid. Ball thought the reason of
the cause of the last fire ought to
be protected at once, so as to lessen
the chance of a recurence of
such a fire. The matter was left
in the hands Aldermen Rowcliffe,
Bailey and Ball to look into.
The question of the fire hall and
the occupants of the room vacated
by Chies Hidson was next gone in
to.
It was suggested by Aid. Ball,
that one man should be in attendance all tHe time during the evening even if he had to be paid. As
the Fire Brigade were having a
meeting on Tuesday night, it was
decided to bring the matter up and
make a final decision.
A report was also received that
several children were playing in
the irrigation ditches at Glen Ave.
and filling them up. The Mayor
thought something ought to be
done to stop this and left the matter
in the hands of the chief of
police.
The following motions were
carried.
That the deds for the Kelowna
Land & Orchard Co. for the north
33 feef of Lpt-14 Map 286 be registered.
The Clerk was instructed to inform the Dominion Securities Corporation that it is the intention of
the council to float a further issue
of debentures, and to ask their
opinion in reference to rate of interest and term of years for which
same should be floated.
•" The meeting then adjourned to
meet again on Friday June 25th at
8 o'clock.
Fire Brigade Meeting
Continued from page I;
alarm was given.
Mr. Elliott said he did not blame
the brigade for having false alarms.
The   great bone   of  contention
was the O.K.ing of the bill for some
cloth caps which  had  been  pro
cured    by   the   brigade,'  without
order from the council.
Mr. Samson was told he could
get the caps, but it was not brought
up before the council. It was con
sidered imperative for the brigade
to get some caps to distinguish
them from the rest of the people
who were present at fires, and Mr,
Elliott did not think the brigade
would find any difficulty in getting
the council to O.K. the account
under those circumstances.
Mr. James thought uniforms
ought to be supplied, as often a
suit of clothes would be spoiled by
water and mud, and he did not
think it right for the brigade to pay
for their clothes if spoiled.
Aid. Elliott said the council
would make no agreement .to re-
! place spoilt clothes, as there would
be no knowing when to stop. He
contended that the owners of, the
property attacked would compensate the brigade for any loss, and
had not the, papers set out that
support was coming from the
council, one fire in particular might
have been paid for by the citizen
whose building was attacked.
Mr. Jenkins urged a ^better system, he did not think a fire brigade
could be properly run unless a
better system was established,
Mr. Elliott wished to know if the
brigade wished to remain a volunteer fire brigade. If it wanted paying he said, say so. ,7
Mr. Jenkins replied that riot one
of the brigade wanted payment as
long as the equipment was found.
Aid. Elliott said the present council had
done ten times more for the fire brigade
than any other council had done, and it was
simply because the city, never had an
efficient fire brigade before.
H. Newby remarked that the council
had promised to fix up rooms for the fire
brigade arid also a sleeping room for the
chief, this was three months ago and
nothing had been done..
It was finally agreed that . the brigade
should approach the council and ask for
the following matters to be put straight.
That the city council pay the bills as
presented, minus the money for . ajl false
alarms and attendance at fires.
That the city council O.K. and   pay  the
bill for the caps ordered.   -        ■
• That the Brigade have a written   agreement with the city as to the way they shall
proceed in future.
The meeting then adjourned.

Local Briefs
Mr. and Mrs. Hassel are giving
a birthday- dance at the Belle-vue
hotel today.
The engagement is announced
of Mr. A. G. Martin of South Okanagan to Miss Mackenzie jGrieve.
The examinations for _McGill
University matriculation finished
last Tuesday. The candidates
were the three Miss Huntera, Miss
Biggar, and Miss W. Raymer. The
examinations we-e conducted by
the Rev. Thos. Green.
The members of Knox Church Choir
met on Wednesday night at the home of
Mrs. J. N. Thompson, and after a pleasant
evening spent together, presented Miss E.
Smith with a suit case, as a slight token
of their appreciation of her services as
organist and choir leader during the pant
three years. Miss Smith expects to leave
Kelowna the first week in July, and will
be much missed.
Yesterday Mr. W. Mcjannett had the
misfortune to step on a rusty, four inch
spike that was sticking up in a piece of
board in the road. _ The spike went right
through his boot and has caused his foot
great pain. He at once had the wound
cauterized and progress today is favorable.
Hold-up Near Ducks
About twelve o'clock, when the
CP.R. train No. 97 was proceeding west, towards Ducks, six men
effected a hold-up. Soon after
leaving Sicamous two masked men
crawled over the coal pile on the
tender of the engine, and entering suddenly into the engine cab,
with levelled pistols demanded the
driver to stop at a signal fire only
a few hundred yards off. The
driver having no alternative slowed
down, and the fireman was requested to dismount. Four men
then came from the fire, and after
firing a few shots proceeded to run
through the various vans. Nothing
of value was on the train and it is
expected that the robbers held up
the wrong train. No. 5 was proceeding east with a large .quantity
of bar silver, and it is signified as
likely that this is what they were
after. The train No. 97 carried
practically no.express and only a
few registered letters, and after
finding this out the robbers allowed the train to proceed. The men
made away across the Shuswap
Lake by boat. A search party is
being sent after them, and it is
expected they will be caught soon.
The locality is identical to the
place where Bill Miner held up a
train three years ago last May.
