eeting of City Council
Deputation from Regatta Committee Wait on Council - Object
to Having Baseball Match Same Day - New Pound
" Keeper Appointed.,
The usual meeting of the city
council was held last Monday,
the Mayor and a full attendance of
aldermen being present. The
minutes of the previous meeting
having been read and adopted,
the following correspondence was
dealt with. v
A letter re the supplying of a
new water pump in power house
From the Summerland Development Co., asking for the attendance
of Jthe Mayor and aldermen, together with their wives, at the Naramata Regatta. The mayor, after
ascertaining who would be able to
, go, instructed the city clerk to
write,   thanking  the promoters of
■ the regatta, and to say the council
: would endeavour to be present.
Mr. Ferguson attended at this
point, and asked if the city teams
were to be taken off the work on
, the Exhibition grounds. He explained that the work was not finished, and he had had instructions
that the work was not to proceed.
He thought there was some mis-
. understanding, and would like to
bring the matter before, the coun-
ciL . \
The   mayor explained  that the
teams would  be (working  for at
least another day 'on the grounds
' and whoever had given the orders
' to cease work were in 'the- wrong..
The city clerk then read a tele-
. gram sent to.T. Hidson, by order
of "the.Mayor, expressing the coiin-
; cillors' sympathy, "and offering help.
I if needed-/ ;It transpired that, th^j
■Lchief was as well as could'.be 'ex-
j'pecte'd, arid was being'cared for in
: St. Paul's' Hospital, Vancouver.
Letters were also read from:,
The   Dominion   Securities   Co.,
7accepting debentures., t
. - F. P.\ Kilpatrick, GP!R., explain-
, ing why work had riot been  sta'rt-
', ed before on new*C. P '.R. slip, and
. saying that' the "work- was now" be-
" ing rushed.^ ,..■.-.._
'     L. Carsarso, asking leave to  run
an ice cream booth" in the park on
; the occasion of the regatta.
Aid. Ball considered it best to
only allow tlie two booths provided
under the band stand, to be used,
' and for those to be put up for ten-
' der either by the day oi   for the
: season.   The rest of the councillors agreed that that would, be the
best course to take.
Letter •.rorri the Canadian Fair-
■ banks Co. asking for $2,500 for the
first instalment^jonthe delivery of
goods at power house to replace
7tho8e lostuTthe recenthre.   it was
decided to send the,cheque.
' From the   Dominion Securities
Co., Winnipeg, re debentures.
•From the Vancouver Rubber Co.,
re execution of order for fire hose.
SomeJittle question arose as to
the length of time the order would
take to filL _
Aid. Elliott was of the opinion
that it would take as long to get
i the order executed by this firm as
it did by the Canadian.Rubber Co.,
whose-order was cancelled, owing
to the length of time it took to'be
executed. _
Mr.. Marty attended to ask for
improvements'on the road from his
place in Pendozi Street, to the lake
s shore, and said it was impossible
;to~make any use of the road in its
present state.   ' . 7 :
The Mayor" explaining ' matters,
showed Mr. Mafty that* the deeds
for the-street -were not  registered
■ yet, but it would be' attended to as
soonasthe deeds were received.
So far there was no estimate made
for the  proposed( road, but, the
1 council would take the matter up
again and do the best they could..
Messrs. D. ty. Growley and G.
; F. B. James attended dh behalf of
the     Regatta" ' committees.     Mr.
uCrowley wished to kno\v if the
Aquatic Association had control of
the park on the occasion of the
regattet     He   wished   to  have a
. thorough understanding ■ .with the
council aa to how much land they
could fence in.      He pointed  out
that four to six hundred dollars
were taken in last year as gate
money, and this allowed for some
good sports to be provided for.
The total amount expended was
$1,300, and so it was' a fact that
the gate receipts contributed to no
mean extent towards the success
.of the regatta. This year the expenses would be greater and would
be advertised more fully. A
special excursion was being arranged with the C. P. R. between
here and Revelstoke and Kam
loops, also additional service on
thp lake. The C. P. R. agents also
being commissioned both up and
down the line to make the regatta
well known.
The m^yor suggested that a certain part, say from the road to the
foreshore should be allowed, and
an entrance fee charged for that
Mr. Crowley wished to know
how how the corner owned by Mr.
Lloyd-Jones could be protected
and fenced in.
The Mayor explained that a
lease was being arranged with Mr.
Jones with reference to the corner
in question.
Mr.  Crowley  said   the   charge
would be 25c, and children free.
-   Aid.   Rowcliffe—" And    so  the
Aquatic Association are taking over
the whole thing ?"
.Mr. Crowley replied that the as-
sociation.were. looking after the re-
Tgatta;-bitt'that separate accounts
wour]^ be"kept.H-r .
,\ Ald._Cox*-wi8hed to.know if-the
peopled would be allowed to use
the aquatic building.
Mr. Crowley said the season ticket holders would have that privilege, and that no shareholders
would be -admitted unless they
were season ticket holders also. *
A lengthy discussion then ensued
as to the advisability of allowing a
baseball match to be carried on the
same day.c
Mr. Crowley said "that such a
match was strictly against the wish
of the regatta committee, and asked
the council not to grant leave to
the baseball team to use the park
on the 12th of August. Last year
they butted in, and held a match
and this year they anticipate doing
the same thing. If they had come
to the regatta committee and asked
it would have been a different
The Mayor was of the opinion
that a ball game would be additional attraction, but Mr, Crowley con-
8ideredlHaTirdrew people away
from the regatta, and made it fall
The Mayor pointed out that
Thursday, was the usual day for a
ball game, and that it seemed to
be a general rule to have such
games at each regatta.
Mr. Crowley said that sooner
than knock up against a ball game
the committee would change the
date of their regatta.
Aid. Ball considered the Aquatic
Association had the first claim to the
day, and that if they wished to run
the regatta without a ball game
they should be allowed to do so.
' The Mayor suggested that the
game should be played after six
o'clock, when the regatta would be^
through, but Mr. Crowley did not
agree with the idea. After further
discussion the matter was left in
the hands of the park committee
to "decide..        .
Mr. George James, on behalf of
the finance committee of the regatta, attended to ask for a grant
from the council.
" ' The Mayor said the matter would
be taken up later in the evening,
and receive a decision that night.
They would, however, count on a
small donation.
Before Messrs. James and Crowley-withdrew, the mayor asked the
council to verify a statement that
had been made by some people to
the effect that after he had stopped
the building in the park,  and  had

Echoes From Manhottan Beach
The popularity of Manhattan
Beach as a camping ground and
summer resort was well attested
by the gala appearance it presented
on Thursday afternoon. With
canoes, gasoline launches and row-
boats the campers truly did lay
aside the cares of office and shop
and drank in to the full .the joys
of nature and camp life.
The following were visitors at
the "-.each on ' Thursday, Miss
Grace Martin, Miss Mary Bigger,
Miss Adams, Miss Maud Newby,
Miss Edith Glenn, Mrs. D. Lloyd-
Jones and family, and Messrs.
James and Jack Harvey. r
We are informed by Mayor De-
Hart that a telephone will be installed very, shortly in a central
place at the Beach. This is good
news to everybody except the
ladies who anticipate the pleasure (?) of answering the calls "about
3 p.m., a time ,when ninety-nine
per cent, of them are in the land
of dreams. "*
Mr. Thomas Lawson and family
moved down to Manhattan,-Thursday. (Now Tom, we are glad to
see your genial face amongst us—
but you' must be good !)
There is now a twice-daily boat
service between the beach and
town, the Tut-Tut being in charge
of Mr. Alex. Morrison.,. When the
Tut-Tut "bucks" our genial Captain
Morrison wades through the rushes
and water to shore, but he can^always be relied on to land his .passengers—in time.     .' "f.
The inhabitants of Manhattan
Beach were treated to a delightful
song-service on Thursday evening,
which lasted well on to the' sma'
hours of the morning.'. The selections sung to the accompaniment
of the guitar, were all that 'could
be desired and varied' from "Jesus
Lover of My Soul" to "Yankee
Doodle Dandy."
Mr. McTavish has sold his beach
lot to W. R. Trench, who with his
wife and family are now residents
of Manhattan.
Great amusement was furnished
several campers at the Beach by
two lad_-8 who considered they
were being pursued by a "big
naughty skunk," which upon close
investigation ( turned -out to be
nothing* less than a harmless,
friendly black and white cat.
Some people say you can't makf
much headway through the sand
at the beach, but for sheer spririt-
ing the interested spectators. ot
that flight are prepared to put their-
money on those fleet representatives of the fair-sex against anything
inrKeidwna^ ^_
Say Mr. Camper! if you would
see Nature at its best, if you would
cultivate a love for those inimitable
charms of forest, lake and field,
which have ever been the poet's
theme, arise with us in the early
morn, take your morning dip, enjoy the cool morning air, take your
boat and see the clear placid
Waters of the* beautiful Okanagan
Lake, then gaze across the Penticton Mountain where old Sol is casting his first rays, and if there is any
sentiment in your make-up we are
mistaken if you are not drawn by
an almost irresistible force to leave
behind you the cares of business
and work, and "go away off to
answer the "ail of the Wild."
—A Camper.
Board of Trade Meeting
A meeting of the board of Trade was
held on Wednesday last, an attendance of
13 members being present, with President
Pitcairn in the chair. The minutes of the
previous meeting having been read and
adopted, the Secretary read the following

It was decided to leave the appointment
of delegates to the Irrigation Convention in
the hands of the president, Mr. Pitcairn.
The Board of Trade by motion of Mr.
Raymer, agreed to endorse the action being
taken by the London Board of Trade re
boiler inspection.
It was agree to write the Penticton Board
of Trade re the progress being made in
the dredging operations and lowering the
lake, also to ask what views Dr. Puggsley
had when he passed through.
Mr. DeHart wished to see a cheque for
$25 handed to Mr. Hudson, for his advertisement in the "Graphic", as he thought it
was the cheapest piece of advertising done.
Many present did not agree with this,
saying it was Mr. Hudson's business, and
was not originally set out by himywith the
idea of advertising Kelowna. Mr. Pitcairn
thought he could send in an application
for an honorarium on the beautiful fruit he
sent out to advertise the valley.
It was agreed to leave the matter in the
hands of the publicity committee to purchase photos from Mr. Hudson and send
them  to  the  various illustrated   London

Miss McNaughton for her careful tuition
of the successful candidates.
,Mrs. D. McLean, with Miss Lilian Mc
Lean and baby left for a trip t° Vancouver
last Wednesday.
The publicity committee, per Mr. J._W.
Jones, reported that owing to lack of funds
advertising was not going ahead, but it was
hoped to set the ball rolling again soon.
Pamphlets however had been issued and
sent to England and also to the C.P.R,
It was moved that the shipping companies be approached with -reference to the
placing"->fni1Lslip"in each box*of truit, as'it
would be a cheap mode of advertisement.
■ A long discussion was held with reference to sending fruit to the Spokane Show,
but it was decided to call a special meeting to deal with the matter more fully and
in the mean time to advertise the lands
procured at last show by way of a prize,
for sale by tender, in order to increase
finances. The lowest or any tender not
necessarily to be binding.

that appeared in the " Courier " re the killing of trees by the severe - winter. Mr.
Taylor did not like to see the matter in
print andjiad made a tour over a\\ the
well looked after orchards, and reported
that on Stirling's land, which contained 30
'ti iD varieties none were killed, while of
the 14,000 trees planted on the K. L. O.,
onlyJ6 were dead. After some discussion
the president pointed out that Mr. Monkton
-\TrtFno was preseuir/ imu written—tnc—icttci
with the idea of warning the farner, and
not with the intent of calling down the
district, and wished it to be understood
that the remarks had no reflection on him.
The meeting adjourned at 20:15 to meet
again at the call of th e president.
Baseball TeamGonquers
Last Thursday the baseball boys
paid a visit to Summerland to play
the first game in connection with
the Ellison Cup. On arrival at
about five o'clock the team wa8
conducted to the new grounds on
Bulyea Point. The Bulyea wharf
is only about five minutes walk
from the giounds, and so the better
part of the journey was made by
Rev. R. J> Mclntyre who was
present announced that Mr. J. M.
Robinson who was the promoter
of the enterprise would make a
few remarks and pitch the first
Mr. Robinson remarked how
pleased he was to see so man}1
supporters of both the teams present. He also was pleased that the
team was now able to have such
suitable grounds for their athletic
purposes. He had great views of
the Okanagan and the future of the
Valley, and baseball was among
them. In such a rugged country
he remarked, level stretches -were
few and far between, and he was
glad that such a flat had been
found for the Summerland team.
He complimented the teams on
their appearance and wished the
rivalry between the two would
always be of *»,-t' . oi V \ nature.
This was the }/*» "'i*h1re,.fpr the

The ice cream and lemonade
social held in the park last. Friday
opened with a game of baseball,
Professionals versus Commercials.
The game played was very exciting
from start to finish, and owing to
the light being bad only five
innings were played.

The play wa3 somewhat ragged
throughout, and the fielding was
terribly feeble on the commercial's
side,' they however made up for it
in batting and won the game by
twelve runs to ten. The band
which was in attendance, gave
selections of music, and are greatly
improving after their long series of
tuition in the hands of Mr. Robertson. When they get their new
stand and lighting facilities they
will be more comfortable and will
possibly have more room for they
are cramped for room in their
present quarters.

The game was a good one
throughout, our boys were inform-
ed from the start that the Summer-
land team had been strengthened
by several new- men; and they
knew that it was a case of putting
on their best style if they wished
to pull off the event ■'
The Summerland band ' was in
attendance and gave a selection of
music at the start, but did not
carry a program through. The
previous games it will be noticed
have gone to Summerland by only
a small margin, and that margin
gained because Eastman was ■ unable to pitch owing to his arm
being hurt some time ago. There
is no doubt .that Eastman "makes
all the difference in the box, and
now that his arm is right again our
boys stand a chance of getting
their own back. Summerland in
its attempt to strengthen its team
by Borne new men, had" the misfortune to criple it slightly owing
lack of combination. Our boys
have .always done well in the field,
and with Conrad on first an impenetrable wall is established^in
that direction.' -     "        y^   ..    ^
The game played today is likely
to decide as to who shall take the
cup, although there is a great
chance that Summerland will again
strengthen their' team and" make-a
fight for it.
A good few have imitated their
desire to see the fight and will
consequently travel down to Naramata to enjoy the regatta, as well
as to urge our boys on to victory.

Long articles have been
written and pamphlets published, to say nothing of the many
books on ;the subject of irrigation of land. The matter is
one of deep interest, and more
especially in our own district,
where intelligent application of
water at the right times and in
the right quantities is an all-
important factor in successful
fruit culture. The general impression the new-comer gets is
that irrigation is an awful bore,
and over and over again he will
pray for«rain, and wonder why
the climate, in the Okanagan is
so dry. And yet if one goes
right into the theory ofthe thing
' it is just irrigation which makes
the Western fruit excel in size,
color, and flavor the fruits
generally grown in the East.
Notwithstanding,    however,
that the practice of  irrigation
has been proved over and over
again to place a decided advantage in the hands of the farmer,
yet without the saving grace of
an  intelligent appreciation  of
certain fundamental principles
it may be made more injurious
than beneficial.   The tendency
seems to be mainly to over-
irrigate:     The various chemicals *in the soil to be available
forplarit growth must of necessity be in a soluble state so
that they will  mix  with   the
moisture and feed the hairlike
roots  of" the tree.     It can be
readily seen that flooding the
land with excess of water will
gradually wash away the plant
food provided by nature.    On
the other hand, of course, insufficient  moisture  will   leave
much of this plant food, inert
and of no' use to the growing
tree.   Water, too, is one of the
main foods of trees, but it must
be regulated to their advantage
or water core and other troubles
will ensue and the fruit be unmarketable.   Fruit was affected
by; this disease last year and
„  some varieties had to be kept
over in, the shipping sheds to
see if they developed any signs
of water core.      The   worst
apple, perhap, for this disease
is the " Duchess of Oldenberg,"
■ and many were culled last year
as a direct result of over-irrigation.    It" is in the  power of
•.cohtrblling the water   supply
. that the owner of irrigated land
has • the:, advantage—and   the
• danger.   * With rainy districts
the-ei8-.no chance of regulating
' "the amount of moisture, con-
Csequently ipne ,year will be a
7, good year and the next, perhaps,
If "a poor one, owing too much or

j. desirable amongst fruit tree&as
f,tj»ey do nofallow. the trees to
y^kfrive at'a dormant stage soon
;.2 enough to avoid-early frosts.
V -^The / irrigation   of orchards
;; needs r to be put on  a more
•? scientific basis   than j it is at
i;jw«ajenrif "We are^have good
fruit. The soil must be understood and an analysis taken of
the various properties in the
soil and the irrigation water.
Then, by findingbut what food
the land requires it will be pos-
sibleto grow a better and larger
class of fruit by supplying food
through theirrigation channels.
Another system not general-
Jyseen here, is root pruning,
and it is marvelous the difference in the size of a crop a
good root pruning will establish.
Some time ago it was tried in
Ontario with the result that the
experiments showed a double
crop on the side which had received the pruning, and only
an average crop on the side the
side the roots were left. People
say of the lovely photos that are
displayed of fruit clusters, that
the fruit grower wishes
his crop was about half that
size, and evenly distributed.
That may be very well, but
with a large crop it is an easy
matter to thin out the small and
misformed apples, while it is
another matter to try and stick
apples on owing to. a short
crop. ■.■'■.
A mere efficient and scientific system of fruit culture
must be established if the Okanagan is to continue to hold
the reputation which the valley
has already gained. That
system cannot be established
until someone who knows explains the correct way of irrigation and care* of orchards to
farmers who do not know. The
need of technical instruction is
becoming more 7 and more
pressing as time goes on. Some
facilities for obtaining practical
information on all subjects
relating to the growing and
marketin|me*^?uit would be of
inestimable" benefit to the district.

< There-is still a strong feeling
in the minds of the non-motoring public, against the excessive
speed at .which.automobiles
travel. It has been a . knotty
point in all towns where the
motor is an innovation and has
been thrashed out times out of
number in the columns of the
press. : We are in receipt of a
cutting from Mrs. D. McLean
with reference to the matter,
which owing to lack of space,
are unable to reproduce. The
article deals with the question
in a very rigid manner, and
says the least a motorist can
do when he meets a timid horse
is to slow down or STOP. This
plan we.heartily endorse until
such a time comes when the
equine race are throughly convinced that motors are not
some infernal machine bent on
their destruction.

High Handed Diplomatic Methods; of
the Seventeenth Century.     " ^
Indignities to which foreign envoys
were formerly subjected in China were
mild in comparison with those occasionally meted out to them in Constantinople. M. Julian Klaczks in-^his
"Etude de Diplomatic Contemporaine"
relates that" in 1C73 the grand vizier,
having intercepted some French dispatches, tried to force Del'la Haye,
first secretary-to the French embassy
and son_ of xthe ambassador, jto give
him-the cipher of the embassy. The
young diplomat indigiiantly - refused
and was in consequence bastinadoed,
struck in the face with such force that
bis, teeth were broken,-and .he"was
thrown" into prison. " No attempt was
made by Louis XIV. to "obtain redress
for the wrongs inflicted on his representative.^ _
Until the beginning of tbe eighteenth
century Christian envoys to the p'orte
were-forbidden tp visit* one another or
even .to confer wltb one-another, on
neutral ground. They were - not; allowed .to drive in public .with'their
wives, '^ahd at one time it -wasVpro-
pwsed to prevent them from importing
wine' for ,their. own consumption. A
compromise-was effected on this point,
on the understanding that tbe accused liquor was to be conveyed from-the"
harbor to the embassies at night and

Originally it "was Instituted by Magnus
IV., some600-years ago, to commemorate the siege of Upsala, the ancient
capital of the Swedish kings, and; Its
statutes bound the recipients of;the
order to fight to-the death for the main-"
tenance of their religion and to constitute themselves the special protectors

of th<Keigbteentb "-century by King
-Frederick tbe obligations laid upon the
members'were* somewhat less onerous
The decoration consists of an eight

Britain's Great Museum Opened.
The King has opened the new Victoria
and Albert Museum at South Kensington.
He was accompanied by the Queen, being at
tended by the Royal-Family and surrounded by a number of high officers, both
military and educational. Immense crowds
thronged the streets, and bunting decorated
the main streets through which their
majesties passed. The sun poured down
in a golden stream as the ceremony was
being completed and the cheering of the
crowds as the King went up with key in
hand to open the gates, was a sign of the
good feeling the crowd had_towards the
new structure. The whole edifice which
is in brick with white stone trimmings is a
marvelous piece of architecture. The
most noble feature is that the late queen
laid the foundation stone of the immense
structure before her death, and upon this
stone has been raised a notable building
worthy of the name which it holds in
memory of the greatest and most beloved
of queens. -^
Cardiff Vicar's Strange Death.
A painful sensation was caused when it
was known that the Rev. Lancelot Lewis
of Cardiff, who after being rector of Ely,
and having received the appointment of
Vicar of St. Martins, Cardiff, had committed suicide. The deceased gentleman was
found dead in the bathroom, having shot
himself with a revolver. His* mind had
become unhinged owing, to a bicycle
accident, and_he was taking a holiday with
his wife and children at Weston-Super-
Mare. He returned home unknown to his
wife and committed the deed, and had
given no idea as to his intentions.
Debt Paid After Forty Years.    "*
An amusing incident in which a North
of England store keeper was the leading
figure, came to light at Londonderry. The
other day a gentleman entered'a store and
handed the tradesman a cheque for a sub-.
stantial sum. " That," said the visitor, " is
to cover the balance of the account due to
your late father with compound interest.
A very long time ago I started business in
Deny, got into financial difficulties and
became bankrupt. After my discharge 1
started business again and prospered, now
I have come to discharge all my old debts."
The tradesman was amazed and further
still when the cheque was honoured, but
he does'not know now for what the lm-
mence sum was owing.
Trapped by Dye.
A curious casewas before the Marylebone
magistrate the. other week, when Tom-
Brownett was. charged with stealing money
from' the pocket of a coat which was hung
up in the cloak room' of Messrs. Cox &
Edwards, silk mercers. The accused had
been-suspected for some time-and consequently a trap was laid i for him. Some >
dye was put' in the coat pocket, and when
the accused placed his hand in it, it became
covered with the fluid. The judge in commending the. system of tracing,, said that
the.dye,wa8 not injurious to the' hands and
could be removed in an hour. He pointed
out that there were  limits  to which the
tracers of these theives were  allowed to

v - Blaze at Paint Factory,
A large,fire in which about £3i).000
worth of stock was destroyed, occurred in
the East End of London last week. The
property 'belonged to Messrs. Wilkinson,
Haywood & Gark, Ltd., paint m anufactur-
ers... ,The fire, which started in the colour
mixing room \yaa quickly fanned by the
wind, spreading to the adjoining buildings
and stores. A district call was circulated
and some twenty engines arrived in less
than no time. Owing to the nature of the
goods, and the large amount of turpentine
were unable to cope with the fire and the
only thing they could do was to direct their
attention to "the adjoining buildings. The
Thames fire floats, Alpha and Beta arrived
to give assistance, but without avail, and '
the whole or the premises were burned
down. The loss was covered by insurance
and a total t claim is being made. The
cause of the fire is unknown, but put down
to faulty electric installation.
Suffragettes Cause Trouble..
The suffragettes, have been causing the
prison officials at Holloway gaol a great
deal of inconvenience and worry by re-,
fusing to comply with the regulations, and
have consequently been debarred their
freedom to walk within the prison walls
and-have' been confined to their celk.
They however, still remain in a stoKd
state and refuse to work, the governor
has therefore ordered them to be brought
before the visiting magistrates on charges
of defying the prison rules and also of
breaking windows of their cells,"

News of the Prairie
During a thunder storm at Osage
last week. The residence of A. G.
Markham was struck by lighting.
The chimney and part of the roof
came crashing down below, and
the. family consisting of eight
persons, had very narrow escapes.
Mrs. Markham was struck by a
piece of the chimney and was rendered temporally unconcious, and
refuge from the storm had to be
taken in the basement.
W.C.T. U. Notes.
Conducted-by the Ladies of the Kelcwna branch
of the W.C.T.U.
The twelfth of July was celebrated largely by the Orange gatherings throughout the prairie provinces. Stoughton had a large celebration at which the Regina
Excelsior band gave selections of
music. Winnipeg kept a' very
quiet celebration.
-*•' According to a report in the
Fillmore Press, Mr. W, O.TurnbulI,
manager of the Beaver Lumber
Company at that point writes from
Kelowna to say how taken he is
with the climate and conditions in
the Okanagan Valley. Mr. Turn-
bull was staying with Mr. R. Morrison, another old Fillmoreite at this
point. We would like to see some
more of the old faces visit from
that part and give in their reports.
The prairie is not so far behind
in the,vegetable crop. Peas are
reported ready in Saskatchewan,
while potatoes are well on the
road. The 1909 crop shows every
sign of being a bumper, one, and
the atmospheric conditions are
generally considered fine throughout the provinces. Hail is the only
danger that -threatens 'the northwest farmer now.

Cardinal Manning Would Abolish
the Bar-room
The late Cardinal Manning, a representative and popular Roman Catholic prelate
once stated:    ,,
•"I wish well to all trades, but with a reserve. I hope that the baker may bake
more bread as long as he lives. I hope
that every clothier may sell more yards of
broadcloth and make more coats every
year that passes over his head. I hope
that every farmer may sell more wheat.
But I cannot say in my heart and conscience
that I hope "the brewer may brew more
beer, or the distiller distill more spirits, or
the publican sell more of both. ( Cheers.)
There is a limit to my good wishes. I
wish all trades to prosper except one. The
prosperity that I wish to that one trade is
that it should cease."
-"•'•''..Shut the Door.
What I wish to do is to lift the temperance idea to the level of its patriotic
significance. 1 know that it has two sides.
One is the Christianity that puts its arms
round the drunkard and enwraps him in
the warmest sympathy, and tries to plant
in his heart as rhuch resolution as he is
capable of. The other side tries to make
it safe for him to walk the streets'by
means of prohibition. We are an inventive
race, and we are ingenious in our statesmanship. If this does not succeed, we
will try another plan. In Illinois, one of
the richcst~ir.cn said:—-Give—me— reso!»_
ution to pass.that open door"—which led
into a drinking saloon—" and I will share
my wealth-with you to-morrow." He
could not do it. Nobody but God can
plant in a human soul that vigour and
resolution which can trample this appetite
under foot. But there is one thing which
law can do, which the safety of the republican institutions demands, and that is
shut the door.—Wendell Phillips.
What is Alcohol?
. The following definition is given by  T.
Alexander MacNichoI, M. D.:
What is alcohol ? It is an excrement of
the yeast fungus, a parasite which is midway between a plant and an animal..
Chemically, it is a compound of carbon,
hydrogen and oxygen, and is 91 percent.by
weight ethyl alcohol and 9 per cent, by
weight water. From its physiological action
we denominate it a narcotic poison.
Eythl alcohol is found nowhere in nature. ,
Wheat may blight in the field, corn rust on
the stalk, rot on the branch, grapes wither
jon the vine, but you will find no alcohol.
Man's inventive genius is brought into
operation.' The starch granules are broken' by mechanical pressure, and under
proper conditions of heat and moisture
decomposition is secured. The yeast fungus finds enviroment favourable for 'the
operation of its physiological functions, and
exerts that subtle spirit which is known in
world's market.as spirits of wine, beer,
brandy, whiskey, etc., but which scientifically is called alcohol.

After twelve hours search, the4 police
have had to return to Edmonton to report
that they can find no trace of the two notorious convicts s that escaped last week.
The escaped men are Johnston, the big
negro, and Atchinson, the Moose Jaw
criminal. The escape was very sensational, they climbed over the barbed -wire top
of the fence, and got away into the bush
before the fence guard's eyes. An attempt was made to shoot, but the rifles
jammed and would not go off, consequently no alarm was given to the officials inside. Johnston will certainly put up a
fight if tracked, and owing to his desperate
nature being known to the authorities,
instructions have been issued to fire on
him directly he is seen. A warning has
been issued to the inhabitants of the district surrounding, and farmers are on their

-  Butterflies on a Liner.
The appearance of seven large butterflies
in the pain garden ofthe Hamburg-American liner America caused unusual interest
among the passengers on the voyage from
Hamburg, and when the steamer docked
in New York there was still doubt as to
where they had come from. >
When the steamer was four days out of
Hamburg several early risers went into the
palm garden, and were surprised to see
three large dark brown butterflies with
cardinal and ochre stripes across their
wings fly out from a pot of hyacinths. The
report of the presence of the butterflies
soon spread about the steamer, and in a
few hours the garden was crowded. Meanwhile four other butterflies made their
appearance. It is believed that they
were brought aboard with a consignment
of plants that came from Southern Germany several days before the America
sailed from Hamburg.

Their   Methods ^Depicted   on   the   Old
Tombs of Egypt;      7
In an address delivered before the
Itoyal Geographical society Captain
H. G. Lyons, director geueral of the
survey department of Egypt, - told of
the work of ancient Egyptian surveys
^ors: "At every period: of^ ancient
"Egyptian history," he said,"the land
was measured aijd recorded with con:
siderable accuracy. '. Property was
dealt in regularly, aiid an elaborate
system of registration was maintain^
ed. No map of landed property in
ancient Egypt has come down to us,
but on the tomb walls we meet with
representations of land measurers at
work. Their methods of land measurement are represented on the walls
of the tomb of one Menna nt Sheik
Abd oi Qurna, in Thebes, a land overseer and Inspector of the boundary
stones of Amon.
• "In the sceue depicted are shown
two chainmen measuring a field of
corn with a long cord, on which are
knots or marks at Intervals which
seem to be about four or five cubits
In length. Each also carries a spare
cord, coiled upon his arm. Beside then)
walk three officials, who carry writing materials and who are accompanied by n small boy carrying writing
materials and a bag In which are
probably documents and plans referring to the property. An old man aud"
two boys also accompany the surveyors, and a peasant brings a loaf of
bread and a bunch of green corn.
"A similar scene ,is pictured on the
wallsof a tomb belonging to a certain Amenhotep, also at Sheik Abd el
Qurna. Here only one man accompanies the chainmen, each of whom,
as usual, carries a spare cord. The
figures are larger than in the tomb of
Menna, and, though they are now
much damaged, it is possible to see
clearly that the cord terminated in a
ram's head."

He Got Out of His Tight Corner With
Flying Colors.
He was a husband who, when he left
home for. a week or so on a business,
trip, invariably took with him a photo
of his wife, and in the letters that _ev
wrote to-her he always made a great,
point of this portrait and dwelt upon
the fact- that the sfcht of it was the
only thing that kept his spirits up
when he was far away from her. ..
One day, however, he left the home
and forgot to take the portrait, with
him.    But he was not going to let a"
little thing like that worry him..
Down he sat and penned his customary, amorous epistle, In which the
portrait played Its usual part. It was
not until the letter was posted that he
remembered-that the portrait had.been,
left. at home in a conspicuous place
where his ■ wife could not fail to discover it. ■'.,-,
■ The fat was Indeed-in the fireV but'
he was a man of action and determined to get out of his tight corner
somehow. He remembered the shop

.Some Interesting Figures'-
A statement issued by the Immigration
Branch gives an interesting classification of
the immigration into Canada during the
past twelve years. It covers a period from
January'1st, 1897 to March 31st [909 to be
' exact, a period of twelve 'years and three
\s months.   The following results appear:
Total immigration       ''      0      1,366,651
British immigration     '   ' 540,421
Continental  immigration    — 400,560
Immigration from United States 427,470
English and Welsh immigration 377,801
Scotch immigration 94,279
Irish immigration     ,            . - 30,284
■, ' The proportion qf the fore going classes
> of immigrants who made entry  for homesteads were as follows:-
Continental Europeans 30 per cent
Immigrants from United States 43 per cent
English and Welsh 21 percent
Scotch ^   *    22 per cent
s'    Irish" - '24 per cent
A portion of the statement is devoted to
showing the number of immigrants,debar-
ted Since December 1902 when the medical act,went into force of vthe . immigrant
' at ocean ports 19,897 were held for further
.inspection and J.803  were' rejected.. Inspection of immigrants seeking  admission
\ into Canada from  the United  States Was
'begun in April 1908 and during the fiscal
year   \ 908-9  4,580 intending immigrants
were "debarred. - " t
Further it is shown that 3,149 immigrants
who       passe-1       inspection      afterwards
^.became  a public  charge  in one way   or
.another   ^. and  -were > *"* deported.   The
f number   was   insignificant   until   1907-8
when it rose to 825;.,and   1908-9  it,was
', 1,748.   Nearly two thirds of those deported or 2,007  were  English.   The  Scotch
-came next came next with 206. than Americans 'at-149,   then . Bu lgarians with ,• 137.
No other nationality reached the  hundred
* mark and the remaining deportations were
"distributed amongst 'forty-two nationalities.
'- Turning to the homestead entries during
$ this peroid the statistics show:-
Ocean ports
Farm Labourers, 187,991
.■It ,was shown , that" bohus was paid on
r"|6.47 of the British immigrants, 5.6 "per
cent "of the immigrants. coming from the
United States and on 10,99 per cent of the
immigrants from the Continent. -,
Another set of figures shows the occupation or calling of' immigrants since the
year 1903-4/ During the period *>almost
exactly a million immigrants have come in;
of these 700,391 entered by ocean'ports
and 299,603 came from the United States.
The occupations were:-

asked about, the change of position of the
cubicles,.a report had been circulated that
at the time the matter was brought up at
council meeting, the mayor had said,
" Before we adjourn, let us take the Aquatic matter up again, and turn 'their plains
down cold." He did not remember having made any such statement, and called
the other members of the council to witness, that no such words were used. The
council agreed unanimously that the report
was a false. fabrication.
Aid. Rowcliffe remarked that if the
mayor had not taken the matter up that
evening it would have been left.
Mr. Crowley promised that he would inform the members of the Association of
the mistake made, and contradict the report if given to him again.
Motions were then put forward, granting
$75 for the regatta purposes, and that
$2,500 be paid to the Fairbanks Company
on account for the re-installing electric light
and water plant. '
A letter was read from Mr. Kendal, of
Penticton, re the lowering of the lake.
A letter was also read from the Minister
of Justice, re the fencing of land along the
lake shore, and the council were referred
to their solicitors.
Aid. Elliott reported with reference to
the appointment of a pound keeper, and
said Mr. C. Blackwood had agreed to take
the position over again. The city clerk
mentioned that the resignation of W. H.
Beattie had not been received, and that
no accounts had been received.
A motion was put by Aid. Cox, seconded by Aid. Bailey to the effect that Mr.
Blackwood should be appointed by the
city council as icily pound keeper pro tern.
It being pointed out that the words pro
tern were put in pending Mr. Beatty 'a
official resignation.
Aid. Cox reported re the affairs of the
late Mr. Tatler, and said he had seen Mr.
Biggs who .had had close relations with
Mr. Tatler during his life, and: found that
deceased left a wife in Scotland who was
not is a very good position financially.
The parents of deceased were fairly well
off and a certain sum of money was oh its
way out here to provide for his fare home.
He had made a verbal request to Mr.
Biggs to have his goods released, and the
money sent to his wife in the event of his
death. Mr. Biggs was sure some important mail was due, and Aid. Cox requested
the council to make provision for someone
to deal with it.     .
The mayor said he would like to see a
motion put forward authorizing someone
to sell the blankets, and the money so obtained should be sent to his wife, together
with his watch.
After some further discussion the following motion was made. Elliott-Rowcliffe
—That the city police be instructed to sell
the effects of the late Mr. Tatler, and turn
the money over to the city clerk to be held
until the council can hear from his people,
and that the city, solicitor be appointed to

Aid. Ball reported that Mr. Chas. Harvey
had been approached with reference to
the proposed new map showing the subdivisions, and it was decided that a trip to
Kamloops would be necessary in order to
get the,details. The material would take
about two' days to collect and the cost
would be about $100.    Aid. Ball in point
ing out the reason why the trip to Kamloops was made imperative, said that
owing to the plan of subdivisons not being
left in the city council's hands the expense
had to be incurred. He considered it best
to make a hard and fast rule that no. plans
were signed until the original tracing was
left in the city clerk's hands.
The mayor told the council that he.had
had an application from a Mr. Wellband
of Edmonton, asking for a, copy of the
latest city map, and he was willing to pay
for it. He (the mayor) was of the opinion
that a revenue could be obtained by selling
the blue prints from the map, sufficient in
time to pay for the cost of production.
The matter was left ih abeyance."
It was pointed out by the mayor that it
would be necessary to stake off the road
running round the park and suggested that
Mr. Parkinson should be employed.
Aid. Elliott informed the council that
during the week the Rowcliffe block had
been supplied with water from the city

The following motion was made.
Elliott-Rowcliffe—That tenders be called
for gravelling Glenn Avenue, with shell
rock from Harvey's pit, tenders to be in
by noon, Monday, July 26th.
Questions arose as to who was looking
after the material that was being used in
the power house. The architect, Mr.
Thomas, had left for the coast, but Aid.
Ball made a comment that the cement
being used was the very best.
Aid. Rowcliffe said Mr. Clement had
asked for permission to use brick blocks
for the top.
Aid. Ball considered brick block would
not be advisable at the top of the building
and that solid brick would be better.
Aid. Ball said a report was about that
he was favouring concrete in order to help
Mr. Clement along. He pointed out that
Mr. Clement's tender was the lowest, for
brick as well as concrete.
A motion was then put forward that
Mr. Thomas, the architect for the power
house be asked to tender his resignation
on account of his leaving the city, and
that the building inspector. Aid. Cox, be
asked to look after the work.
The mayor said that Mr. Buckland had
asked for the money for the land acquired
by the city council in connection with the
E. & A. park, and Mr. Sutherland and Mr.
McDonald had also made a similar application.
Aid. Ball thought the matter had better
wait a few: days until a settlement was
made with the Dominion Securities
An amusing statement was made by
Aid Bailey. He had had some difficulty in
piocunng a pick and an application fair a
pail was turned down as there werdnone
Aid Elliott pointed out that the total
number of pails charged up to the council
was over a hundred, and he could not understand the difficulty in procuring one

Aid. Ball said a lane must be opened
for scavenger purposes, and he strongly
advised that the provision for lanes be
passed at the time the plans were presented.
The matter was left until more detailed
advice could be obtained.
A letter had been received from Mr.
Crowley with reference to the assessment
of land given over to the city, and asking
for a rebate.
Aid. Ball considered they ought to pay
the taxes up to the date the land was sold,
and the city clerk was instructed to look
up the date and draw out the taxation on
that plan.
The following motion was made with
reference to the Aquatic Association and
the Regatta Committee.
Ball-Rowcliffe—That all details connected with the holding of the- Regatta under
the auspices of the Aquatic Association be
left in the hands of the city clerk.
The meeting then adjourned to meet
again on Monday, July 26th at 8 p.m.
A meeting of storekeepers was held on
Tuesday, with reference to the steps the
Aquatic Association had taken in asking
the council not to allow a baseball match
on the occasion of the Regatta. It was decided by them not to subscribe for the
regatta unless a ball game was included
in the programme, and so the regatta
committee had to concede to a game being
played in the city park in order to get together the necessary subscriptions. The
general public's feeling against the action
taken by the members of the regatta
committee was very Wong.
Mr. and Mrs. Grabell left for Edmonton
and other points in Alberta, where they
will seek their home. Duriug his proprietorship of the Royal Hotel, Mr. Grabell
has made many friends, who regret his
leaving. His health, however, broke down
and he considers the prairie agrees with
him better than the more sunny districts.

The Rev. S. J. Thompson Gives Interesting Report of His Visit.
The Rev. Thompson who has
been away on a visit to the Coast
in connection with the International
Convention of the Epworth league,
brings back some very interesting
reports. He had the pleasure to
preside at one of- the morning
sessions, and reports .the halls
filled to their utmost, on one
occasion their being about 4,500
people present. The average attendance was between three and
four thousand, and during the
four days the attendance was composed practically of fresh delegates.
A choir of 500 voices under the
directorship of Professor Grabrel
was in attendance, and rendered
music of a first-class nature.
Five Bishops belonging to the
Methodist Church were present
and gave discourses on several subjects. Mr. Thompson considers
that the Canadian speaker ranks
second to another nationality which
so far has not made an appearance
upon the face of the universe.
During his visit to the Coast M*\
Thompson visited the A.Y.P, Exposition and gives a graphic description of the great show of fruit.
He was surprised to see a box of
cherries labeled Stirling & Pitcairn,
of Kelowna, and anxiously took
note of the various remarks made
by the visitors about the exhibit.
He" heard nothing but very favourable comments and also .on the
other fruits and hops shown by
the Okanagan valley districts.
Another exhibit from B.C., (and
Mr. Thompson considers the majority of the "Canada House" was
supplied by B.C. productions) was
the very tastefully arranged mineral exhibit. Coal, was exhibited
from the Crow's Nest, copper ore
from the St. Eugene mines, and
specimens of gold-containing ore,
from various other districts. Co
bait had a good show of ore con,
taining silver, the whole exhibit
being placed in a very artistic
manhei for the spectators to get a
good view. 5
Another feature at the end of
the house, was the large panorama
of the growth and progress of, a
prairie farm. "At the start is seen
the horses and cattle grazing on
the prairie, the vast extent of wild
land, running to the horrizon. The
The next view shows the pioneer
at work with a sulky plow and six
horses. The third view shows the
log cabin built, and the land seeded down to wheat and other grain
The Jast scene is the farm in all its
glory, such a farm as is often viewed in the minds of the pioneer,
but alas, seldom realized. The
land is covered ;with brick buildings, farm yards, and additional
soil is under cultivation. ' The
whole scene is so realistic that Mr.
Thow.pson thought he was transferred from Seattle to some out of
the way prairie land,
Stuffed buffalo and deer were
dotted about, and-a grass surface
made to , the picture nearest the
Another panorama which excites
great interest is one depicting the
battle of Geddesbury, and lectures
are conducted of an instructive
nature by guides who show people
round the building. This panorama has been on view ovei forty
Mr. Thompson was pleased with
his trip both from a religious as
well as a pleasure stand point,
and wishes he could have stopped
another convention and another
trip to the exposition.
