Inspectors Investigate the
Power House Accident
Inspectors   Peck   and    Downei
'    arrived by Monday morning's boat
to  investigate the   cause   of  the
damage done to; the power house
plant by the recent accident.-
At one o'clock in the afternoon
• "the' met the mpyor and aldermen
.J in „the  council, chamber, there to
continue the investigation and  to
collect evidence.
11 ;
Messrs, Russell, chief engineer of
^ the   power ^ house,   and   Crowe,
'   third ^engineer, were   present,  as
also   were   Messrs.' Langille and
JJurnette, whovconducted~the primary examination'of the plant after
-    the accident had occurred.
-The-first' evidence   taken- was
. that of W. G. Russell. * He stated
that he had superintended die reinstalling, of the'electric light plant
for the' Canadian  Fairbanks Co.,
and had receiv;ed- instructions to
put the plant in t the-same' condition, as ^ it was before the power
, house was burnt down.   This* had
, been doneand the plant stood now
the same as it was before the fire.
The drawings of the old building
• and plant had been destrbyed in
> \the_fire but duplcates were-at Vahi
. _ couyr and a copy could be obtained.
The t reinstalling" I of the"" plant was
done" without any fresh drawings,
but he was sure that no mistake
_, cnuld~have been-madc-as-he had
, the pulling drawn of the plant after
7 the fire before reassembling. •
Asked about fife' vaijwum'break
Mr. Russel}* replied _tK_t it was,on

~"'had*befe-i*-made' owing,'to the fact
" that die'plant was not complete at
the time of/ the^ accident, the arc

.•      following,Thursday week,for tKe
'■      coast, the plant running, for eight
,      days before he left it.   He further
stated that Mr/Crowe started work
* on' the same day as himself, he
having been also in the employ, of
the Fairbanks Co.
. Mr,-i"eck asked what instructions
were' left "by 'Mr. Russell for Mr.
Crowe.. \       ,     ♦'■'
' Mr. 'Russell said, he_left nq'jn-
~     structions excepts that die engine
was to be shut down1 with the load
on.    'He was Satisfied   that'Mr.
,      Crowe;was capable of handling the
plant'ahd 'shutting down the engine
correctly.1[' ~Oh the old' plant" he
had given Cf owe , instructions' to
open .break valve. to the, atmos-'
* phece^theli'to-jjhut down" pump,
and-f'dftfepvAfdVto shut down the
en#hei*7 StThese . instructions   he
- considered-^applied ..to^-the...new
' plapt as yrell as to the old and he
did not'repeat   them.   Believing
that Crowe had not worked a con
denser plant before, considered it
. necessary/;to > instruct \ him- in.thp
first place/.but when the power
house was rebuilt with the identical
plant1 he did riot think it necessary
to go through it "again. .'"
Mr. Crowe^waijfl'then called to
"give his-egort1 He stated that the
instructions' were ygiven ,him as
' stated} by. Mr. Russell, and' had1
been followed on the old plant.
The accident had occurred on
August 21st as he was shutting
down the.! ]plant.". "He had (first
opened the ^-Cylinder s drain cocks.'
The cylinder drains, which were
the same as in the old plant, the
four opening on a level. He then
closed down the condenser pump
until there was only ^fifteen incherf
of vacuum, and'opened break -to
exhaust to the atmosphere. When
stepping over to shut the steam'off
■ait pump he heard water in the
cylinder /and tat once 'shut jthe
•brittle.-* *" } *' f> i I.]'*
in reply to .a question $• . to
whether the load was on at the
time, JVlr. Crowe replied that it was
practically off with the voltage
down to 90. It was usually running at "HO volts; The total amperage wag four or five, while the
regular amperage when -running
was sixteen." ^      '_""",,.
Mr. Peck asked if he had ever
shut down that'way'before."   1
Mr. Crowe replied" that he had
shut down that way since the plant
started. -H^ had spoken" to Mr.
Russell about the change of method
in shutting down,'but was*notv8ure
if he had understood./ '  *i
Mr. Peck asked why the change,
was made as'the* mode seemed to
-differ, from the . instructions "Mr^
Russell had given.
Mr. Crowe 'said he shut down, in
that manner so as to make it easier
on /the governors. He v.hen ex-
plained that the new spring which
had been, placed in the fly-wheel
to act a8*goyerhor was broken die
first night the plant was started up
and the old spring had to be„> put
in its' place. ' It was thought that
the-old spring might be. a'little
weak, .and consequendy the mode
of shutting down was altered. . The
chief .engineer had, told .him the
the spring was--weak and ordered
the load left on the board for that
reason.*" - -   - x   *     .
,Mr. -Peck- 'then"1 'asked several
questions 'bearing' on -Mr. GroVe'p
authority to run a condensing plant.
Heiwa8 informed "that Mr. Crowe
held a third class ^certificate, and
Mked^Mrr^G^-*^ third-clate
certificate would entitle the holder
to1-operate a-condenser, plant. (/.j_"
Mr. Crowe replied"that a'second
class certificateXwould be required.
Did you understand that at the
time Mr. Russell went away ? "    ,
"Idid."-     '  --^' .      "   ,f
"•Who gave you instructions?"

Russell.'-     .    - , "'      ,. 'e       V
■   " Then you were not entitled to
work.the^ plant/',-Was your engagement', thr6ughv Mr. Russell .or. the
council?"*-.i   _>    . tj'-,* y*      A*
(y " Mr. Ru88ellvengaged hie." •
_'  Mr. Crov-e considered; he was
able to operate, the/plant in Mr.
RusseuVabserice, and.that he£was
placed in charge by,, instruction of
Mr. Russell.^- y
Aid. Ball wished toN know if the
piece of machinery Mr. Langille
was asked to inspect after he and
Mr. Burnette had drawn up their
report had any .bearing - on, the
accident.' i • * " •'' ' ', '
Mr. Crowe explained that it was
vacuum breaker, the same one as
had gone.through-jhe~fire, andhe
had thought that if it did'not do
its work properly there was nothing to prevent water from getjing
into the cylinder. * Several theories
were 'put forward by Mr. Crowe
whereby water could enter the
cylinder, all showing that the water
came by way of the exhaust, or else
by,leaking from the.condenser to
the exhaust pipe. '
,Mr. E. Langille was next called
and stated that he had been asked
bv Mr. Rowcliffe to inspect the
plant and to find out the cause of
the" accident. "He said he .had,
taken the heads off the steam chest
covers , and ' had found nothing
there. Heiwas certain the accident
was caused by water in the cylinder
as if it was any foreign matter that
caused the accident, it would have
been" found there.
Asked about the small vacuum
breaker shown him by Mr. Crowe,
he said it appeared to be in good
working'orde'r.t-but when .tested
did not do its work properly. t
? Asked if hei could not find out
the'caU8e, Mr. Langille replied .that'
he did not'go further into the mat;
ter. . -He was asked to find out the
cause, and found out that it was
,water ■ in the: cylinder, that had
caused the damage, and he had
not'attempted to investigate further.-
The only breakage he could find
Was the low pressure valve, and

nearly all glass with a galvanized

Two Important Cnllections
of fruit .
' F. R. E. DeHart has' agreed to
look after collections 'off fruit for
individual exhibitors at the Spokane
Fair, also to .select and ship any
varieties which are likely to take
a prize. If sufficient fruit can be
collected a general exhibit will be
sent from Kelowna; and district,
and great.- credit is due to the
mayor for the interest he is taking
in the matter.       ' ~
He has furthermore - undertaken
to advise anyone who has a variety
they consider worth showing, as to
the best classes to enter their fruit
in, and to personally supervise the
exhibit. '       - •   *
.He has asked us to state that he
will be pleased to hear from all
intending exhibitors, as well as
those who have good- fruit that
will be likely to.figure  strongly in
the exhibit.

' Another collection of fruit has
been started, this time the Govern-;
men.1 are1 asking for, good .samples,
for advertising purposes. At the
beginning of this week Mr. George
'Thornton arrived with instructions
to "jordcUre 'three to four   hundred
bottles df fruit fo_ exhibition purposes.
I A collection is'to'be ^made throughout

were responsible for the project
were willing to' put,up half .the

that the money so obtained should
go' towards keeping the - track in

Mr. Ball, as to how many spectators
were likely to attend, • the mayor
said that last year there were more
at "the match races than there were
at the Fall Fair. The cost of1,, the

The success that attended our
fall   fair   last week,   with its
grand display of apples, makes
it almost certain that we could
ag^in come away with honours
if we were to show at Spokane
this year.   A few weeks  ago
'we '*   advocated      individual
exhibits, and have been pleased
. to hear that some people contemplate    sending    a   special
v, exhibit of their own,   if   the
Board of Trade do not see its
way clear to rescind the motion

small representation of farmers
at the Board of Trade meeting,

representation was present, but
*   the motion was carried, and to
all intents and  purposes  will
remain  as it  is, unless some
immediate steps are taken to
v,, discuss the matter again

National Apple Show. About
the only thing that we could
put forward to combat such an
opinion would be the fact that
our closely allied town, Vernon
is showing, and practically upon our own recommendation,
for it has been mentioned that
it would be useless for us to try
and take the bread out of
Vernon's mouth by exhibiting
against in the same show. Is it
a wise thing, to leave our reputation in the hands of Vernon
to hold up for us ? Are we not
better able to do this kind of
thing for ourselves?
For the sake of argument, let
us first quote from Mr. Price
Ellison's speech at the opening
of the Fall Fair: " You have a
better kind and a better colour
than we have in Vernon, and
although I live at Vernon, I am
sure you have one of the finest
fruit growing lands in the
Then again, take the Oyama
correspondent's' remarks as
pointed out by the Vernon
News, with reference to the
Fall Fair in Vernon:
" The writer visited the Vernon fair and must admit was
rather    disappointed    at   the
exhibits of fruit and vegetables,
both as to quantity and quality
and the judging of vegetables
was not up   to  the  standard;
whether this is as a result of
the    imperfect    classification
made    by     the    Agricultural
Association or not I cannot say,
but that there is room for considerable   improvement   is   a
self-evident fact, but of course
these improvements will come
from experience."
If Kelowna grows  the  best
fruit, and according  to  all accounts she does, it is right that
in justice to herself as well as
to the valley she should show
what prize fruit she can.

Penticton made a good show at
Vernon F^air last week, carrying off
seven first prizes and several seconds. The growers in that part of
the district, by the way, are complaining of their nursery stock,
some of which, they allege, was
sold by a prominent nurseryman
as Wealthies and Spitzenbergs, but
have turned out to be the homely
Ben Davis variety. It is about
nurserymen gave an absolute guarantee as to the variety being as
represented, as the same exprience
has been gone through in other
places. (
Summerland is to hold an apple
and flower show in the council
chamber at an early date. The
show, which will be held under
the auspices of the Fruit Growers'
Association, will be accompanied
in the evening by a series of lectures
by fruit experts. A prize list is in
course of preparation.

One of the features of the Fall
Fair at Vernon was an Indian
' pow-wow," given by the Indians
who were hop picking in the district. It was the first time many of
the white people had seen the
Indian war dance, and the spectacle
proved highly entertaining. They
were treated afterwards to an address bv the chief.

Editor Orchard City Record,
Dear Sir,—Is there no way of inducing our Post Office clerks to
give better attention to the public
in the afternoons? People come
into town, often from some distance, to find the letters are sorted,
and evidently no business going
on behind the closed windows, and
yet can get no service, and pehaps
wait half an hour uselessly, and
then have to go away disappointed.
There seems to be some thoughtlessness somewhere.
Yours faithfully,
Peter Oleson, a cableman on a
ballasting train on the conshuction
work at Keremeos fell under the
wheels of the train last week, receiving injuries which caused his
death a few hours later. As he
was pulling a lever to open the
side doors of the car, so as to dump
the gravel, his hand slipped, and
he fell in such a manner,that his
foot caught in a wheel, crushing his
leg from the foot to the knee. Dr.
McEwin was quickly summoned,
but when he arrived the man had
died possibly from shock more
than from the actual injury.

[Our correspondent is evidently
under the impression that when
the card, " JLetters Sorted," appears
in the window at the Post Office,
all work is finished. This, however,
is not_tiie—case;—i^aigc-Cjuantities
of newspapers, sometimes amounting tp over a dozen sacks, still re:
main to' be dealt with: hence the
delay in opening the wicket.
The card referred to was introduced at' the request of the Board
of Trade, who some time ago
pointed out to the Post Office
staff that merchants often wished
to get their letters right away, but
would leave the newspapers until
later. Thus when the card appears
in.the window they know, without
furthet waiting, that they can expect no more letters that day.
, The misunderstanding seems to
arise, in pur opinion, from the fact
that Mr, Bailey is,not sufficiently
explicit in his announcements. For
instance, the card " Letters Sorted,"
might be more'intelligible if to it
were added say " Twelve Bags of
Newspapers Still to Sort." Then
possibly this might be followed
towards the end of the newspaper
sorting by a card informing the
public, tbat, "We Are on the Last

A New Hat Creation.
Arrows Left. Their Sting.
It was not often that a laugh was'
enjoyed at the expense of the late
Nicholas Flood Davin, the brilliant
Irish member of the House. His
arrows of wit usually hit the mack,
and pointed, as they often were; with
sarcasm or ridicule, they sometimes
left a sting behind. Fort instance,
during the early months of the 'present regime in the course of a speech
in the House, he charged the liberal
party with being wholly .devoid of

Charles 1 Statue to beRemooed.
The figure of Charles -I on ! horseback
which has for centuries been standing in
the Trafalgar Square is to be removed but
up to date noparticula.fsitehasbe n found
for its re-erection. Its fate is not uncommon in a growing city, as fresh spaces have
to be made for new streets and the visitor
to London would be surprised at the
different land marks that have gone in the
past few years. The Old Obelisk in St.
George's Circus has been recently removed,
and everyone thought the structure had
been destroyed but it now owns aposidon
at Bedlam, a new transcription being added with its more recent history included.
The famous old hoise that used to stand
in "Leicester Square has shared a similar
fate its remains ' however being sold for
£8 to a private purchaser, and < according
to reports many other monuments are to
go in the near future.

A ris
Koto to Sharpen a Razor.
The setting of a fine edge is distinctly a
knack, and  ita  acquaintance requires  as
much  practica  as the setting of a cutting
tool for the lathe.   If, however, one.be but
familiar with the elements of the process,
a  considerable  amount of vain labor and
time might be saved, as Professor McWil-
liam explained recently before the Sheffield
Society of Engineers and Metallurgists in
, course of a. lecture on the prosaic subject,
: ''The^Care.of:a Razor."   This paper em-
: bodies the reoults of continual experiments
and study of the, subject over a period of
twenty  years.   As  he  had only his own
face on which to test his theories, his ex-
■, perience has proved a valuable factor.
The cutler from whom he purchased his
first' razor, upon inquiry as to whether it
should  be  dipped  in  hot  water before
stropping, replied in the negative.   Similarly, one recommended a rigid, and another
a flexible strop, according to his own pre-
deliction; while there was a similar divergence of opinion, as to whether stropping
should 'be done before or after use.   The
'professor? having tried all methods in turn,
was able to select that which is undoubtedly the best.   He found that the flexible
strop, hung at one end by a nail, such as
the professional weiider of the razor ordinarily resorts to, gives a strong but not a
firm edge, and that oil tends to harden the
surface of the strbp, unless applied.   A
1 sealskin  strop, having '■ a  smooth, pliable
surface,  gives  the best edge;   and if the
razor de dipped into hot water before the
stropping,  the   metal  is  toughened,' and'
better fitted for  the  production  of   the
requisite keen edge.
The preliminary immersion in water is a
vital factor, since razors possess a finer
temper than ordinary cutting tools, and are
proportionately brittle. It is also expedient
that the strop surface be preserved from
the settling thereon of dust particles, the
presence of which, if of a gritty nature,
may be liable to break,the delicate edge of
the tool. It is important to remember that
the edge of a "razor, being obviously of a
much finer character, owing to the nature
of its work, than other cutting tools, must
receive special attention, and by taking to
heart the foregoing simple rules, many of
the difficulties at present experienced may
be effectively overcome.—Chamber's Jour.,

The Truth About Waterford.
The Toronto News" touring reporters
recently visited Waterford and wrote sonie
more or less interesting letters as to conditions in that town. One of them, at least
does not seem to have investigated local
conditions very carefully, as the following
letter from a resident of the town will be
an evidence.
The writer of of a "Ladies' Letter," in;a
Melbourne Weekly heaps half a column of
derision'on whiskers. She wonders any
woman con abide a man with a face like a
broken sofa cushion. " Although a loyal
subject and devoted to my King," she
cries, " I think King Edward should take
those nasty germ-narboring whiskers off
his face and set his subjects a better example."   Hooray I God shave the Kingl
Editor Pioneer—Those two News reporters have written   some awful stuff   about
Local Option   at Waterford,   One   begins
his articles    with,   "Most   men   have    a
weakness which they indulge to a greater or
lesser extent."   This   reporter's weakness
seems to be lying and he is indulging in it
to a great extent.   After careful   investigation, their facts are   flatly   contradicted.
The bottle brigade is not strong in Waterford.   The road between here and Simcoe
is hot strewn with empty bottles, for none
were found yesterday.    The best people of
Waterford do not prefer the regulated bar
to the unregulated   bottle.   The   liquor is
not shipped in   by   express   and   several
cases   carted   every week.   So  says  the
expiess   agent   and   express   carter.   No
barber has lost $10 a  week.   Neither was
any one of the three barbers   seen by the
reporter, but only an assistant   whom the
reporter took for the owner.     Both strangers and residents know   that Local Option
is working well, even these two  reporters
unconsciously     admit.   that.   Magistrate
Tobin gave out from ,his - book   recently
that the three years before Local  Option
he had 67 cases of all kinds and 33 of these
were for "drunk and disorderly."   For the
two years, four months since Local Option
has been in force, he   has tried  45   cases
and only four of  these   were   for "drunk
and disorderly'* and   these four   were   all
outsiders   who   came   in   drunk.   Surely
when the D. & D.'a are  reduced, from 50
per cent to less  than ten per   cent of the
crimes, that speaks for   itself.   Magistrate
Beamer of Simcoe (our county town,) eight
miles away, with 3.000 citizens   and   four
licensed bars ond two licensed shops, had
from Sept. 1st. 1908, to 1909, 133 cases, of
which 73 we're for drunk and  disorderly.
Twenty eight of   our   best business   men
signed the following statement that  Local
Option is a   benefit-to   this 'town,   both
morally and financially and we can heartity
recommend it to other  villages as   in  the '
best interests of its'citizens  as   a   whole, i
A   $50,000   telephone factory   has   been
built this year and its   three disectors are '
red-hot Local Optionists.   There   are   no
vacant, houses.fifteen   hew   houses   have
been built, property has increased in value ,
25 per cent, rents, have  been raised  very ■
high, and the   banker   says   the   savings i
deposits have increased, all this   in   good
Local Option time.   The , thirsty ones are j
crying loud against Local Option, but   the '
best citizens are praying, "May we always \
stay "dry'' and sober.
Pretty good and pretty nearly incontest
ible evidence this, surely.

The San Francisco
Opera Company
The' San FranciscovOpera Company will
not attempt any of the strenuous work of
last season. Poor bookings i '■made* it
necessary for the willing workers on Mr.
Healey's payroll to attempt impossibilities
and as a consequence unfinished performances were given in several cities. This
season nothing will be offered that has not
been played in Vancouver, and the same
casts and chorus now appearing in Vancouver will be retained. It will therefore be
seen that with' the scenery and prdpert.es
used at the Empress Theatre being shown
in this city, our theatre goers will be given
metropolitan productions in every jsense of
the word.   The critic '■ of the  Vancouver

compliment, Tuesday, August 10th
"The Empress:    Fun,   real   honest fun,
with good   music   and   brilliant   settings,
to say nothing of a .remarkably attractive
lot of femininity, has been endemic at the
Empress Theatre since the coming of the
San Francisco Opera Company, headed by
that remarkably clever singing comedian,
Teddy Webb .   There   have been   many
changes .since   the   company   opened   its
season'at   the Empress,   but despite   the
changes,   the  excellent character   of  the
performances   is    maintained     and    the
audiences repeat their generous applause
nightly.   A Runaway girl was the   bill-of-
fare offered last night,   and   though „ this
favorite musical comedy of George Edwards
has, been heard   often in Vancouver, the
fact that it has lost none of its charm was
apparent from the   generous applause   of
the musical members and   the   continual
ripple of laughter with  which the   house
rewarded the many well taken chances for
what,' for want of a better term1 is generally
known     as1    "funny  business."   Charles
Coutoure of Gus Stanley is an • acquisition
and William Chester as Leonello is another
of those to be noted   for excellent   work.
Teddy Webb   himself as Flipper Has,   of
course a whole lot to do, and he never had
a part that fitted him better.   The enthusiasm   that he   clisplays over his,;Vork ih
itself acts as a tonic.   His interpolation of
a late 'coster song' may be poraoneA for its
mere excellence of rendition!, The chorus
reinforced as it has been by ,a bevy of, the
prettiest and cleverest,little gitls ii^ musical
comedy to-day, left nothing to be desired;
indeed, the   whole   performance  is  one
which cannot fail to   appeal to "crowded
houses as the Runaway Girl  continues to
repeal: her truancy fat the Empress for the
remainder of the week.'',

The Orchard City Record.,

Continued from page 1
and stated that he -was not familiar
with the plant, but had had some
experience with other jet condensing plants. He endorsed JMr. Lang-
ille's statements, having made the
first investigation with him, and
.was sure the accident was caused
by water in the cylinder.
"Mr. Russell was then recalled,
and when asked if Mr. Crowe's
method of shutting down the
engine would contribute to the
accident, he replied that it might,
but he, did not think it would. He
did not think Crowe's plan so good
as his own. He considered that
when he opened the large vacuum
breaker it would cause a sudden
movement on the governor which
would be detrimental to the spring.
He said that Mr. Crowe had. previously worked with him and he
had found him satisfactory in every
detail Mr. McGown, the boiler
inspector, had told him that Crowe
could look after the plant and that
he could go away.
"Do you think that as Crowe
was left in charge he should use
his own judgment ?"
Aid. Ball: " What in your opinion could have been done that was
not done to prevent the accident ?"
"Turn off the injection water."
Aid. Ball: " You did not object
to .Crowe's method of shutting
down?" '"-i
Mr. Russell said he had a faint
recollection of being told about
the change, but did not take much
notice of it.
Aid. Cox wished to know if the
accident was a general'one, to
which Mr, Russell replied that such
accidents had happened before.
Aid. Ball asked if the weakened
spring was still in use. This was
found to be the case.
Inspector Peck then commenced
to sum up. He said he would
give no definite statement until he
had seen the drawings of the plant
at Vancouver. Judging -from
the evidence he took it that the
accident occurred by water coming
back from the condenser or else
through the exhaust pipe. Some
different theories had been put
forward, but they were four different ways too many.
As far as Mr. Crowe's evidence
was concerned, there was nothing
that Mr. Crowe had done, that
would not-occur by itself without
Mr. Crowes aid. As Mr. Russell
had stated in his evidence the
engine had done the same thing
itself and had righted itself automatically. He considered Mr.
Crowes method of shutting down
better than Mr, Russell's.
Mr. Crowe was left in charge
and had a right to exercise his
judgment which he did, and he
considered no blame could be
attached to Mr. Croffie for the
accident. He promised a written
report of the accident, together
n»ith the cause when he had read
over the evidence at Victoria.
It vas pointed out to Mr. Peck
that blame was thro urn by outside
people on Mr. Crowe and Mr. Peck
replied by stating that no blame
whatsoever was coming to Mr.
Crowe. When asked if there was
jmy chance of preventing a reccu-
rrence, Mr. Peck said he wonld
endeavor to make some suggestions that would prevent any
reccurrence < and this he
considered would be an easy
matter. When'-" asked if the
company who. installed the plant
were liable for damage, Mr. Peck
said it would be a matter for the
council to thrash out for themselves.
The investigation th'enclosed.

The G-l and the Fruit
Industry of B.C.
"There is no change in fruit rates
contemplated at the present time," said
Mr. W. B. Lanigan, Western Freight Traffic
Manager of the C. P. R., last night. "We
made rednctions last spring," he continued,
"following upon the winter confererence
at Victoria, and our carrying charges will
remain at their present figures for some
time. The British Columbia farmers are
now enjoying very reasonable rates to the
prairie markets, much better ' than those
afforded the American growers, and'if
they do not capture a fair share of . the
business it is their own fault entirely. The
C. P. R. is prepared to encourage the fruit
industry in British Columbia to any reasonable extent.
Mr. Lanigan stated that' thia year the
company would take the annual shipment
of exhibits over to England as usual. Mr.
W. E. Scott, of the Provncial Department
was to be in charge. Several of the details
of this year.s- British Columbia exhibit
were arranged at Victoria last week by
Messrs. R. H. Agur. of Summerland, and
W. Crawley Ricardo, of ^Vernon, who
accompanied Mr. • Lanigan to the Coast
from the Okanagan Valley, where he has
been on an inspection trip. They' had an
informal conference regarding fruit matters
with Mr. Lanigan, who assured them of all
possible assistance from the company.
Queried'last nigh* regarding the * statement in an evening paper as to the
probabiliy of the Canadian Pacific
establishing a central apple-packing plant
in one of the fruit growing districts, Mr.
Lanigan stated that the company had no
intention of any such action, as it wo.uld
be entering the realm of purely 'private
enterprise. Vernon it had been said, was
to be the location for the first establishment
of this character.
Speaking of < the Okanagan district
through which' he has just made an
extensive tour, Mr. Lanigan was very
enthusiastic. "The Okanagan is a great
country," he said. "I drove all over it
and it impressed me as being a district
of wonderful possibilities. But there are
two things that they need there. They,
should' have an experimental farm for the
Irrigated Belt, to show them what they
can grow and what they cannot grow, arid
they ought also to have an agricultural
college where the young men of the
Province might receive a training along
the lines of an industry which willr before
long be one of mammoth proportions,

Famous Boy Violinist to
Vlisit Kieltiwna
On Thursday next, tOctober 5th, Master
Wilfred Small, the boy violinist, will visit
Kelowna, and will give a, concert in the
Opera House in the evening, essisted by
Mr. Percy S. Hook. *
Wilfred Small has captivated the people
of Summerlnnd with his music, and the
press reports from that town, speak greatly
in his praise, and there is no doubt.that
the Kelowna people are in for a treat.
Master Wilfred Small, together with
Percy S. Hook, is starting a tour throughout the Dominion, it being his aim to
finally go abrpad, where he will have more
scope for his talents.
This, however, is not the first tour of
the young violinist. He has played, at
Montreal, Calgary, Vancouver, and in the
States, and at.every step he has left" an
impression, behind which goes to show
that his talents are more' than those belonging .to the average violin players.      »
From his immediate youth, he' has
shown a taste for music, and before he
learned to play the most difficult of all
instruments, he amused himself corducting
miniture orchestras composed of acorns
and sticks. •  -
Master Small made his first appearance
at Montreal, when he was enly six years of
age, where he played his favourite instrument, the side drum. Ultimately he took
a course of Violin lessons at the Montreal
Conservatory, where he remained until his
moved West.
Following his earful tuition he has now
become a veritable child musician, and
will make a tour throughout Canada, with
the idea of making for himself a name
which will be placed together with the
highest, musicians of the day.
During his visit here, he will -ha
accompanied by Mr. Hook, who 'is an
acknowledged pianist, and to whom will
be attributed a portion of the programme
