. Meeting of Gty Council.
Fire Hall to Cleaned Up and Decorated  -  Finance Committee
Getting Uneasy About Expenditure in "the Various
i Departments. *■
      meeting of the  city  council
was held on Monday last, Aid. Ball,
Cox, Elliott and  Rowcliffe  being
[' present, with acting.mayor  Bailey
in the chair.
f5f>The   minutes  of  the - previous
meeting  having   been* read   and
n adopted; the following correspondence was dealt with:
Robert McKay,, re position as
night constable.    Filed.
Robb Engineering Co., re bed
not being quite the same size as old
one, and ..pointing, out   that   the
[. piston rod of engine may have to
be adjusted.    Filed.

Messrs. Mcjannet & Hall, the city
clerk being authorized to send in
account for all ' charges,  licenses
and rates.

Filed.
C.   Municipalities,
- asking for a representation of"* the
city council.    Left on table. -
National Carbon Co., re Carbons.
Filed.     ,
J. Peck, Chief Inspector of ;Bqil-
ers, stating that he would be here
on the 27th, to inquire into power
""house break-down, also asking for
names of persons employed.
The city clerk was instructed to
give the names of those" who were
.working in the power house at the
time the accident' occurred. .... ,
'"' Several telegrams"' were!. read,
mostly referring to the locating ■. of
the engine bed, a'iid"went'to show
, that up. to^theT^^t'thelbed had
not been'located'4nd<transferred
to express.J ":' ** ■**
. Aid. Rowcliffe was of the opinion
that the Robb - Engineering * Co.
were responsible for the non arrival of the bed, and suggested that a
letter should be sent that company
■stating tHat the city was largely inconvenienced owing to its non
arrival, and asking them to locate
it and send, it on at once.
. - Aid. Bailey suggested that a wire
should be sent, asking for the
number of the car in which the bed
was, shipped, and also! for the shipment papers, 'io . that steps for
tracing could be taken this end.   ^.
Aid. Ball pointed out that the
shipment would possibly be made
through separate cars, and that it
was owing to-a change of cars that
the bed could not be located
The matter* was left in the haitds
of Aid. Rowcliffe, to see Mr. Clark
of the C. P. R. depot here, and to
ask his advice in tracing the matter
up.
Telegrams were also read to and
from the Chief Boiler Inspector,
Mr. Peck, stating tKat~_v!_TCrowe
wished to leave, and 'asking if his
attendance at the inspection w_t
imperative.
Inspector Peck telegraphed, that
Mi. Crowe must stay until after the
inspection.
Aid. Ball considered that by the
way accounts were coining in, the
estimates were being over expended, and that it ,wae time some
statement was made out showing
the various moneys already spent
by the different departments.
Tenders were then' read from
C. G. Clement, quoting a price of
25c. per square yard for cement
side walk on Abbott Street, and
21c. per square yard on Laurier
Avenue: referred lo the Board of
Works for investigation and report
the quotation on the former street,
appearing to be too high.
* W tender was also received from
G. F. Budden, re,the painting and
kalsomining of the Fire Hall, and
generally cleaning up the building
$23 being quoted.
' Aid. Elliott wished to know how
much'money was left' in. the fire
and water committee's estimates,
saying that he could" not agree
the different expenditure charged
to that account. '
The clerk was requested to turn
up the expenditure, and according
to the books, very little money was
left to be expended for ' fire
purposes, f i ■
.When   detailed,  the   accounts
showed that $100 was granted to
Mr. Burnette for running the fire
engine, and $5 each time the fire
engine went out, was charged
against the estimates. These items
Aid. Elliott had not taken into
account when drawing up the
estimates, and consequently 'had
not been included in the appropriation.
Aid. Elliott suggested that Mr.
Burnette's services could be "dispensed with,, taking into account
the fact that he was willing to
teach those of the fire brigade who
were to occupy the rooms over the
fire hall how( to use the fire engine.
No definite action, however was
taken in the matter.
It was suggested that it would be useless to talk about sinking sand points in
Glenn Avenue, but Aid. Bailsy considered
it an important mattter for (ire protection.
The cost was largely discussed, Aid. Ball
estimating the cost at between 4()-.and 50
dollars, and the matter was left in the
hands of the fire and water committee to
see what the sand point system would
cost.
, It .was decided tliat the fire hall interior
should be pasnted, and the tender presented by G. F. Budden, should be accepted.
'Aid. Elliott reported on the 'scaveoger
service, saying he had found it impossible
to get the garbage drawn away from his
premises for several weeks. He had heard
other complaints on ths same score.
. Aid. Cox said he had heard of
very little dissatisfaction, but
promised the matter attention. '<■
- The committee chosen to meet
the fire brigade presented a-rtpovc
of the cost of furnishing and kalsomining the fire hall. They also
stated that Max. Jenkins had been
selected as chief of - the brigade.
Provision was also made for four
men to sleep in the hall and to
learn to operate the engine. The
estimate amounted to $93.20.
Some question arose as' to the
estimates which were, being over
exceeded but it was agreed that
the matter of furnishing the fire
hall must gb through.
Aid. Elliott stated that a lot of
.untrue statements had been circulated in the press about' him,
most of them purporting to have
come from'■ Aid. Cox. Hei had
been accused of gross negligence
by not calling a committee meeting,
and wished tov point out that. he
had no cause to call a meeting
owing to - the fact that he , had
never been approached, by the
fire brigade for any supplies.
Aid. Cox said that the fire brigade
had shown much dissatisfaction at
the treatment they had received at
the hands of the fire and water,
committee and he' himself had
heard promises made to the brigade, which he thought would be
attended to but found out afterwards that they were not. He
consequently put the blame on
Aid. Elliott as chairman of the
committee    for   not    letting   his
Musical and Dramatic
Society
, With     a   good   attendance   of
members present   the Musical and
M
r.
Dramatic Society met last Tuesday
in Lequime's Hall, the chief object
being to elect new officers for the
ensuing year, the following being
nominated President Mr. J.F. Burne
Vice President Mr. F.A Taylor,
Secretary Mr. H. Whitehead.
Committee R. Morrison, DeCpqu-
ery, Thompson, Mrs. Thompson,
Mrs. Leckie, Mrs. Calder, J. Ball,
J. Harvey. It was decided to raise
the subscription price for male
members to two dollars per annum
and to exclude the privilege giving
members and associate members
in previous years . to purchase
tickets two days before -the box
office was opened to the general
public it having been found out
that the system had found general
disfavor with the publis on previous
occasions. .
The Society will start rehear-
on Tuesday next in the Opera
House, the members of the Orchestra meeting on Wednesday,-at
Lequimes Hall. Rehearsals for a
number of choruses will be b"gun
and allmembers are requested 'to
be present at the respective meetings in order to start proceedings
with a good swing, and any new
members will be heartily welcome"
at the opening practise. '(     >\ '■-
The committee appointed to
look into the matter of "engaging
a director, have decided upon
Mr. J. E. Watson wkq has had a
large experience" in concert work,*
and also the training of choirs and
orchestras for ^dramatic purposes:
Both rehearsals will start at
eight- oclock,—'and;prompt "attenr^
ance is ■ considered necessary ,to
make' the proceedings a success.
The programme will be practically
the'same as last year, with the
exception that one or two comedies
may be added to the list. It will
at any- rate include one comic
opera and one comedy, together
with the usual concerts.

colleagues know that everything
was-going smoothly. A fusilade
of words ensued in which Aid.
Elliott considered the press 'were
at fault for reporting the statements
made by Aid. Cox.
Aid. Cox urged a better system
over committees. The Health
Committee had always met when
anything important was on and
he considered the other committees
should do likewise.
Aid. Rowcliffe wished to know
if there was enough money left in
his department to paint thj. power
house roof.
<Ald. Ball pointed out that the
question was one of borrowing
more money for that department
as the power house roof should be
painted before winter set in.
Aid. Bailey said that Mr. Sutherland had asked for the loan of the
old street gasoline lamps during the
fall fair, and had promised to have
tHem returned to the fire hall when
they were finished with at the E. &
A. Building, permission was granted on those terms. It was also
mentioned that the necessary
coraals for cattle had been   pulled

- W. B. M. Calder "returned from
his tour in the eaBt and west last
Tuesday.
' At about eight-thirty last Tuesday
the Fall Show, which . has caused
so much comment in town, was
formally opened by Price Ellison,
Esq., M. P. P.
During the day the hall, "which
appeared in the morning nothing
but bare boards.*" was transfomred
into one of the most picturesque
sights imaginable, being gaily hung
with festoons,'flags and asparagrus
fern, mingling together in perfect
harmony.
• The exhibits showed some keen
competition, many samples of the
best fruit and Vegetables the valley
could produce, being on view at
the" tables.
>   Mr. D. W. Sutherland, president
of   the   Agriculture   and   Trades
Association,    in    introducing   Mr,
Price Ellison, said that in his official
capacity,  Mr. Ellison was a   very
busy man, as he  had  many local
affairs to attend to. He considered
that it was a great sacrifice on that
gentleman's part to be present that
nigh: to open the proceedings, and
he  was  quite sure pat   everyone
appreciated the sacrifice Mr. Ellison
was making in   appearing , before
them that evening to open the fair.
Mr.   Ellison  was a fitting  person
to open the proceedings, as during
his time he had been   one   of the
largest farmers and in fact one of
the pioneer farmers in the valley,
and he had great pleasure in introducing him that night.
",Mr. Ellison replied, stating that
it gave him  great pleasure to be
pMseirt at the proceeding.     The
president**had* mentioned -that  it
must be a sacrifice for him to attend
the  fair) but he  wished to   state
that it was no sacrifice for him to
come  to  Kelowna.   .Some years
ago   he  had  had the pleasure of
opening the fair in this town and
at the time he had predicted that
the  building would  not be large
enough in years to come to hold
all the exhibits.   So far his predictions had not been realized, but he
was sure they would be in the near
future.   This season, he remarked,
was an off season in the Okanagan,
and in the thirty-four years he had
been associoted with the valley he
had   never, known  an . off season
before.   This season fruit had not
been  plentiful  anywhere,  and   it
was  for  this  reason that the hall
was not better filled with exhibits.
" Nevertheless," he said, " you need
not  be  ashamed   of/your exhibit,
for I am confident that there is no
better fruit grown than# what you
have in this building today..  The
fruit of Kelowna has a name," he
continued, "" and  that  name  was
obtained I&st vear at Spokane
when Kelowna won so many
prize's with a comparatively small
exhibit." Nothing gave him greater pleasure than to be able to
standjup in the House and say that
Kelowna had won so many prizes
at the Spokane Exhibition. That
was an advertisement that would
stay, but he uiged the people of
Kelowna not to- stop at that. He
considered it best, perhaps, that
Kelowna should not show at Spokane this year, but he urged them
to enter the field again after the
off season was past and fruit was
plentiful.
" If you want to show fruit, you
must make provision accordingly,
and begin thinning yolir fruit in
the spring." Thinning he considered to be of the utmost importance, and told how some exhibitors
Went so far as to pick off the tree
a leaf which was shading an apple
so that it would ripen all over alike.
" Show by all means," he remarked,
" for you cannot get a better advertisement than you had at Spokane. We do not know the value
of our own country in the Okanagan."
.-He strongly recommended growing apples that would command
the highest market price, as there
were markets for the fruit all over
the country. He had met a gentleman who had asked him if he did
not,think fruit-growing was overdone, but his reply was " No! not
if you grow the right varieties."
He compared Kelowna now with
its fine streets, buildings, churches,
and hospital with the Kelowna as
he once knew it. Large tracts of
land which were apparently nothing
but rock are now some of the
finest fruit lands out of doors.
He had practically decided to
sh ow s'ome of his Pond's Seedlings
here this year, but when he had
seen some that were brought in he
was glad he had left them at home.
" I am more than pleased to be
with you," he continued, " for I
have,, always considered Kelowna
to be head-quarters for fruit/ You
have a better kind ■ and a better
color than we have in Vernon, and
although I live at Vernon, I am
sure that you have here some of
the finest fruit-growing land in the
world.-
Mr. Ellison closed, perhaps, one
of the best speeches heard in Kelowna, with the remark that he
hoped the weather would hold
fine for the morrow, and that' a
large attendance would turn out to
witness the races. He also hoped
that all those who were present
that night, would help the show
along financially, by attending. As
tQ run a show successfully, a good
attendance was required. " Do all
you can,'.' he remarked, " to help
the show along, and this room,' if
my predictions come true, will have
to be enlarged in the near future."
The Fair was then declared open,
the Kelowna band, which was in
attendance; striking up "The
Maple Leaf For Ever."
- A>_ypk*roundthe.room'showed
fruit of all descriptions and sizes
awaiting the eagle eye- of the
judges of the morrow, 'and ' from
the samples sent in in some of the
classes, a heavy task awaited the
judges. s '
A well decorated stand was
found near the top of the building,
being an advertisementforthewell
known firm of Layritz & Co's.,
nursery stock. ' The stand was
very tastefully arranged, showing
off a few samples of fruits *" grown
of the stock which Mr.' A. E. Boyer
carries on behalf of his firm, added
greatly to the geneal aspect of the
show.
Another tastefully arranged stall,
was supplied by Messrs. James
Bros., their electrical instruments
provided a relief for the eyes,
after looking at so much* fruit and
vegetables.
A fine display of photos was
exhibited by Mr. Tupper. There
was also a fine display of vegetables
from the Casorso Bros' ranch, this
occupying half the stretch from the

To the credit of Kelowna
people, the Fall Show has
passed over successfully. The
fine arrangement of the hall,
the excellent arrangements
made by the various committees
and the interest taken by the
farmers, have all attributed to
the success, and credit is due
to Kelowna for having put up
a good show at a time when
things did not seem at their
best for such an exhibition.
Each year we have looked
forward to a better show, and
if not in quantity, in quality
our show this year has surpassed its predecessors.
An eager looking forward to
something better next year in
itself savors of prosperity.
Many towns which have grown
to - their full extent consider it
a good show if their exhibits
come somewhere round about
the average. Kelowna has not
yet grown to her. full extent,
and consequently looks for
something larger and — better
each succeeding year, confidently believing she will get it.
Kelowna and the Spokane
Show.
The following letter has been

The Orchard City Record,
Dear Sir:
We are in receipt of your favor of
September 12thand also a copy of the
"Record," and we are very pleased
indeed to know that the Kelowna
Board of Trade will give a silver cup
for competitions at the Second National
Apple Show. We have received
official notification .of this from Mr.
R. B. Kerr, and have written him in
reply. We regret to, notice that your
Board has decided, not to exhibit this
year, as we have been taking it for
granted that they would be even better
represented than last year on account
of the splendid showing made them.
, We certainly want to..see Kelowna
represented in some way and we are
glad that you are advocating individual
exhibits, and any influence you can
bring to bear to this, end, will be heart.,
ily appreciated by us, and we will be

exhibits we wish  to point out that in
most of the competitions   such as the
plate, single box, five box and ten box
'   ***   "displays, all entries in   each class are
grouped together and each   exhibit is
therefore assured   of an equally good
position.   We are arranging for 90,000
square feet of floor space, and it will
be our endeavor to   give. everyone a

;-,.-<   .can assure intending  exhibitors  that
there is absolutely no favoritism in the
' make-up of the National Apple Show.
( All thet-growers'  interests  are  our

continues to increase, so will the
culls increase and soon if the
present conditions prevail we
shall have more culls than we
know how to handle. By culls we
do not mean small, rotten, shrivelled fruit for we shall never have
an excess of these it is to be hoped
but at present, mis shape a bark
rub, a spot or blemish, brings the
fruit under the heading of culls,
and otherwise good and sound
fruit has to be disposed of locally
or else taken home by the farmer
to fatten(?) hogs.
At present the apples are not
sufficient to warrant any steps
being taken to provide for the
shipping of grades lower than No.
2 but if some large cider factory
or factories does not start soon
and make an outlet for the despised fruit, they will have to be
exported and sold for what they
are worth outside the valley,
possibly in the North-West,
The writer has seen the quality
of apples delivered to stores in
the Noi th'West, and fine specimens
they are of the Northern Spy
variety. Snows also have their
"pull," and are most generally
used. Other varieties such as
Russets, are also displayed, and
most of the barrels have on them
the name of the grower and retail
at from $5 to $5.30 a barrel.
As the. season advances the
prices of apples drop to $3.75 or
$3.25 a barrel, and a peep inside
the barrel gives a good idea as to
the reason for the drop in price.
They are culls pure and. simple in
unlabelled barrels, fifty per cent
lower grade than what we call
culls here. The majority of apples
we throw out as a matter of fact
do not deserve the name culls, as
it is understood by the general
public. They are really a lower
grade of apple to that which we
are in the habit of shipping, and
only wants a lower grade establishing to permit them to be shipped.
At one time the grades for
wheat were No. I and No. 2 Northern but bad years have made a
difference and now we have no. 1
Hard, No. Ij,* 2,-3; 4, 5, 6. Northern.
No. I and 2* feed and in some
localities an intermediate called
inferior fifth or sixth, and rejected.
There is no doubt 'that before
■long some intermediate grades
will have to be established in
British Columbia for fruit, and
possibly the lower grades packed
in barrels to separate then} from
the fine picked fruit that wins for
the province its name, and its
reputation.
There is an outlet possibly for
these blemished fruits in the canneries, although at present ? apples
are not used largely for canning
purposes. Evaporating and drying would be another outlet and
.pos8ibly.it.would be a boon to see
an evaporating plant start up here.
But the question comes, why are
we at present obliged to hold our
culls, when the fruit growers in
the east and the states find a
market for them ?
The government- inspectors
have instructions to investigate
any box ol apples that is shipped
out of the province, and rightly too.
When B. C, fruit is known universally as the best, then , perhaps an
outlet for culls will be allowed, but
not before, and perhaps it is as
well to make our fruit universally
known by shipping out the very
best and leaving the worst-for our
own consumption.
 As bearing.orchards increase
number, the waste will

He has made two previous attempts

The foreman of the " Okanagan"
office, at Vernon, met with a painful accident last week. While
working on ond of the job presses,
he had his fingures severely
crushed by his hand becoming
caught in the machinery. The attendance of a surgeon was found
necessary, and much was done to
releive the pain.
The Okanagan -Exhibition, held
at Vernon last week proved to be
very successful in all respects. A
large attendance was present, but
owing to the fact that the C. P. R.
did not agree to run excursion
trains, the attendance was riot' as
good as last year. The quality and
quantity of the goods - sown; exr

show was pronounced by all, to be
the greatest ever held in Vernon.
One of the chief displays that
received attention, came from Kelowna, being Mr. A. E. Boyer's stand-
advertising the Layritz Nursery

including fruit and vegetables, and
small fruits was set out against a

COLONIZATION SCHEME
CATHOLIQ CHURCH ENTERS ON A
NEW   ENTERPRISE.
Under Guidance of Bishop Latulipe
of Temiskaming, Effort Will Be
Made to Conquer Northern. Ontario
and Quebec—Intent Is Partially to
Keep French - Canadians From
Crossing the Line.
With centuries of experience in pioneering, with a record as missionaries
almost unexcelled, with an organization unequalled by any sect, society,
or corporation,  the  Roman Catholics
of Canada are setting themselves to
the  task  of  colonizing  the  timbered
region of Northern Quebec and Northern   Ontario.    At   the   head   of   this
great enterprise, which means the expenditure of hundreds of thousands of
dollars, almost immediately, and millions  in  time,   is  the   new   apostolic
vicar of Teinibkiiining,  Bishop IS.  A.
Latulipe. This'pioneer has often been
called the "Bishop of Cok.nizi_.ion."
He   has   been   in   Montreal   recently
conferring with those  ahove and  below him in the church, and with rail-"
way   and   transportation    companies,
and   making    other    preliminary   ai-
rangements for  the  establishment of
headquarters and for the opening of
a colonization bureau at No. 58 Notre
Dame street east in the city of Montreal.    He has selected the Eev.  Eugene  Corbeil,   cure  of   La  Tuque   us
colonization   missionary.   -Rev.   Cuie
Corbeil is very popular with his people,   is   enthusiastic, •.energetic   and
oompetent.    The bishop has also in
vited Dr. BriBSon of the Colonization
Society of Montreal to assist in the
settlement  of   land   adjacent  to   the
lines of the Grand Trunk Pacific and
Temiskaming  and  Northern  Ontario.
Here,  neaT the  height  of  land   and
running away west, along the line of
the G.T.P.,   lies a rich clay belt fifty
miles  wide and  some  three  or  four
hundred miles long, and in this dis

be more
and a question will crop up as to,
whether it is right for all this waste
to go on while people in the
north-west, possibly homesteaders
are needing the fruit. Is it right
from the economic point of view ?
The old adage "waste not want
not," crops up in ones riiind when
one sees the amount of waste that
goes on at present. And when
one remembers that waste; will
increase in years to come the
result will be a severe loss to the
farmer if the present conditions
prevail. --'''.'-.'
It is universally known that fruit
growing districts are bound- to
have a certain amount of inferior
fruit together with the first class
stuff, and be the district ever so
popular there is bound to be a
certain amount of waste fruit, but
this waste could be grtfatly decreased if a lower grade apple was
allowed to "be shipped.  "  "
The exchanges could keep up
their usual grade, while the inferior
class goods could be shipped by
the farmer direct in barrels thereby
making it known that barrels-from
B. C. contain an inferior grade, of
fruit to that which is usually exported from the country.

too much of your valuable space,

Already Bishop Latulipe has planted a cross near Ville Marie west of
Quebec. This is a sort of foundation
stone, a land mark, so to speak, a
guide post; for here at La Tuque is
the gateway to the new region to be
peopled by these priests and their
followers. By La Tuque from the
east, by the T. & N.O. and Cobalt
from the south will the future settlers enter this promised land. The
French" belong to the bush tribes just
as the Crees differ from the plain Indians. They settle in the forest and
dear their own homes, while -the English, Canadian and -American settler
prefers the open cleared fields where
they can go to, work growing wheat:
without having to clear the land. The
habitant inherits a contented mind.
With a little home, a team, some cat-
He and a few pigs, he will live happy
ever after, and-bring up bis family
to be contented in that little- world,
jrithin which their lines have fallen.
'For years, in common with other
Canadians, French-Canadians have
been drifting ovor the border, and
this is not desirable. It will be the
Aim of Bishop-Latulipe and his army
of assistants, not only to hold what
they have, but to beckon those who
have wandered away back over the
border. They have been working at
this scheme for some years, and now
the buildipg of the Grand Trunk Pacific gives them their opportunity. It
opens a new empire in-the north
land, a country with a climate with
which the French-Canadians are well
acquainted, and of which they are not
afraid. The timber wealth alone of
this great territory is more than worth
going after, not to mention the agri-
ec-tuT-l possibilities. These and the
undeveloped but known mineral resources are the lin-*- that leads them
on. The territory under the jurisdiction of Bishop Latulipe is 600 miles
wide by 800 miles long, extending
from the limits of the diocese of Lake
Bt. John in the east towards those
of the diocese of St. Boniface in the
west, reaching up north to James
Bay—and_80Uth—to Cobalt—from-the
Laurenti&n mountains and streams of
Quebec to the wheat lands of Manitoba—this is the region towards which
this modern Moses will lead his peo-
Sout of the wilderness of New
land. The development of Cobalt
other mining regions will create
a home market for all the products-
ef the new made fields along the line
ef the Transcontinental Railway.
Bishop Latulipe is devoted to his
country, is a calm soul, but possessing much energy and patience. He
will make this his life work. It Is
hardly necessary to add that the bishop counts very much on the assistance of his colleagues in the episcopacy, who are animated with deep
■yxnpathy for him and his work. Indeed, this is to be a new era, a patriotic crusade. "Canada for Canadians—colonise our own country with
oar own people."' This will be the
battle ory of the new army of empire
builders.

SLOAN'S KOMli-ATIO-i.
"Bill's" Opponent Backed Down After
Nerve-Racking  Wait.
In Mr William Sloan, familiarly
anown a_ "Bill" Sloan, who lebigned
his "seat in Comox-Athn to give a
seat to Hon. Wm Tenipleinan, the
House of Common-, ha., lo.t one of
its giants (physical, not political) and
a highly popular member. Standing
well over six feet, Bill-ha- tho phy-
Old Country News
sique of a(Liie Guards, man and muscular strength  capable of prodigious
feats. As prospector,~~~*MfiTer, and
lumberman,' he has roughed it with
the' best, and encountered adventures innumerable But, as ho himself says none of his wild west experiences was halt so exciting, as an
incident which occurred during the
last election.
Comox-Atlm is one of the largest,
if not the largest, constituency inthe
Dominion, having an area several
times greater than New Brunswick,
while the facilities for traveling are
by' no means the best. A campaign,
therefore, is both an arduous and expensive "business. Before the elections
drew near. Bill entertained hopes that
he would bu saved the trouble and
expense of a contett, but in this he
was doomed to disappointment, the
Conservative, putting up a candidate
who seemed determined to give the
sitting member a lun lor his money
As the c.mpoigii piogiessed, however, Bill's opponent began to lose
courage nnd when nonunation duy
arrived the "story got "wind that he
was a quitter.  ■   -
Both candidates wore present at
.the nomination meeting, an 1 the excitement .was intense It became
known that the Conservative candidate had his nomination papers in his
pocket, but thet he was of two'minds
as to putting them in. Slowly the
time dragged < 'oi^g . nd still he made
no move Occasionally, when an exuberant Liberal was disposed to assume that Bill Sloan was as good
as elected,'the Conservative "would
significantly place a hand ' in his
his pocket where the papers lay, and
then the Liberals ^trembled. It was.
Bill put it, as if'the' sword, of-Damocles was held  over his' head.
The climax came within a few minutes of the hour fixed,for the closing
of nominations ■ The Conservative
was still waiting and watching. Bill
Sloan sat with his watch in his hand
counting the* seconds as they passed
Suddenly-.the tension was broken by
a shout: -    • , i   .' '•""'   i-' -
- ,'-A thousand-dollars that Bill ..Sloan
' is elected by acclamation'"
It came from a^ miner who, unable
to restrain his .enthusiasm, was * prepared to back the favorite with all
he was worth. '-And- it still -wanted
three minutes to the closing hour'
, There was some sulphurous language around that room for- a few-
moment, while the1 over zealous miner
was roughly ejected. And"then.^everybody turned to the Conserbative candidate expecting to see * -him close
with the challenge. Slowly, he rose to
his feet, his hand once more sought
his .pocket,,, and, then—he sat" down.
The struggle was over, and "a "minute
later Bill Sloan was declared elected
.by acclamation.
"I. never had ' such a close shave
all1 my -life,''.-he says..--.
Afraid of* Suffragettes.
Owing to his fear of rhe suffragettes,
Premier Asquith was guarded while play,

Cooh Gets ShacklPton's Medal
It has been stated thatthe medal presented Cook by the Danish Geographical
Society, was the one originally promised
Lieutenant Shackleton as one of thr most
successful Antarctic'explorers. The news
of Cook's achievement prompted the
Society to give him the medal, as he held
prior claim, and meanwhile, Shackleton's
endeavours to reach the South Pole have
crept into insignificance. It is considered
that the society will offer Shackleton another medal, taking the one they had as
more urgent fortook. " I will now have
wait," remarked Shacklston, when he
heard the news.
Hotel Adopts " No Tip '* System.
The Strand Palace Hotel, which was
opened last week in the Strand, on the old

Peary Will Race to South Pole.
The report that Peary will go on a
soujh pole expedition is causing general
comment in geographical _ circles, and
although Captain Scott was only waiting
until the necessary funds were established
it is possible that it will be a race between
Scott and Pearjr as^. to who will reach the
South Pole first. Taking into consideration
the possibility of an American expedition ,
the subscription list to send Captain Scott
hasmateriallyincreased.and.it is likely^
the government will assist the' enterprise

School Hard on Children.
Dr. Sheard of the Toronto Health
Department is a. believer in short
•ohool hours for children. In a re-
oent address he said that it was a
crime to detain them after regular
sohool hours, or worry their tired
brains with home work. They should
not be required to reaoh school in
the * morning before , 9.45, the recess
should be twice ns long as at present.
The noon adjournment should afford
ample time for a leisurely dinner.
There should be several weeks' vacation at Christmas. School should'

$k Okanagan Paid
High Tribute
The Vancouver World publishes
the .bllowjng conversation between
the Assistant Comissioner for the
Okanagan at Washington and goes
to show that a lot has yet to be
done to convince some people
"that the climate here is not akin
to the winters of the north-west.
The Assistant Commissioner Mr.
•J. R. Julian, ofj Epley, Washington
-   was paying a friendly visit to   the
Bastion, and came in contact  with
a gentleman who was thinking   of
going to the Okanagan,   but   was
deterred by what he heard of cold
.weather there.
. "1 am mighty glad you  brought
that question up," said  Mr. Julian.
"If the Okanagan   was    like   Siberia   could   they    grow    peaches
and watermelons and canleloupes,
the finest in   the   world?   Would
Kelowna be a tobacco   producing
. district if it was in an Arctic   belt?
Who ever told you that was simply
lying about   the country,   perhaps
with a purpose.    1  go up   against
the same thing every day.   I have
made, a map showing the   British
Columbia north  of us,   Okanagan
Landing,    Keremeos,     Kelowna,
Peachland, Summerland etc., being
marked on it.   When people bring
up that story about  the   cold and
someone is filling them up with it,
sure I tell them that people in our
country drive cattle 70 miles north
to the Canadian boundary to winter.   They     cannot     understand
going farther north to get a (Warmer climate.   They do not figure on
the     sheltering   mountains,    and
, perhaps, 'have never   heard of   a
'•'Chinook/.. Why my good friend, in
that Similkameen   country bordering on the Okanagan, a - pamphlet
about which has jnst been handed
. to- you,   people   do   plowing   in
January.   I do not believe in   this
knocking business," continued Mr.
Julia»v7- "Peoples   from   v Ontario
come to my booth .sometimes.   I
know   that it   is   useless   to   talk
United States to them, when   they
have better on their own side, but
the more that 'district   builds   up
the better for us, and I do~not let
them go away with   false impressions.   I tell you   that if I had   the
money I would load up' with land
in Similkameen and Okanagan, B.C.
right now."
When a Ship Tabes a Bath.
Within the basin a steamer is docking.
The hydraulic gates are shut, the pumping
engines clang, an exhaust pipe on the
engine-house puffs out clouds of steam.
Men rush about waving signals, lowering
props against the ship. There come sharp
orders from the master of the dock, who
stands with folded arms at the edge ofthe
basin. The crew are still on board. They
line the rails, clattering aud gesticulating;
thrust curioue heads through rows of
ports.
The water sinks rapidly. The steamer
settles on the blocks, and soon her battered
bottom comes to view. She is an old
boat, scarred by seas. The great plates
beneath her water line are seamed with
rust; the paint has vanished ; the iron is
eaten into furrows by years of seething
waters; barnacles sprout about her keels,
clustering thickly on one another, here and
there heaping into chains of hills, spurs of
which run off in all directions and disappear into the shadows beneath her hull;
growths of seaweed cling upon her sides,
oozing moisture, combed into dark green
traceries. At length the dock is empty.
Its wooden, step-like walls are dripping
and covered with slippery races. Little
rivulets trickle down and run out beneath
the ship into broad dark slimy pools.
Water splashes through leaks in the gates;
the air smells dank and marshy, and reeks
of river mud.
Men scramble down into the basin and
attack the steamer. Clad in oilskins they
duck in and out beneath the hull, cleaning,
scraping, painting, hosing down the sides.
Beneath the stem they gather in a knot
about the screw. Or.e blade is missing;
the others are twisted and blunted and
caked with rust. The blows of a sledge
hammer ring out loudly; the men shout at
one another as they strive ta, loosen the
propeller from the shaft. One of the
owners of the boat—a tall man in a long
raincoat that flaps about his ankles-watches
them anxiously. His patent leather shoes
arc flecked with mud.
His foreman rushes about giving directions. " Oh, this ship's all right," he says,
in answer to your questions. " She only j
wants a bit of washing and a screw. She
fouled a buoy down river going a week
ago, and left a blade there in the chain
so's to remember their meeting. But she
needed a new screw bad. The old one
was all but done for, as it was, by the ice
last winter.*'—Thornton Oakley, in " Harpers."
Frayed Frederick—Dis paper says dat
Roosevelt's publishers give him' a dollar a
word. Tatteted Theodore—Dat's nothin'.
I wunst got two dollars a word—when 1

for J 5,00$ barrels of apples, but did not

Salmon Fifteen Cents Each.
The late sockeyes and cohoes are selling
at fifteen cents each. This price has been

last Wednesday, and is likely to run until
the end of the season. The canners are

this year has been very small on the Fra-
ser. Reports from Steveston and New
Westminster state that the gulf and river
waters are alive with cohoes and fate run-
ning sockeyes. Canners and fishermen are
confident that the pack this fall will
greatly relieve tne short pack made in the

country. His mission to Canada ia to
familiarize himself - with- the general conditions which-confront the immigrant, and
consequently took a steerage passage with
the idea of studying the needs of passengers, He reported that a splendid type of
men were' emigrating at present, all with
some trade, and likely to get on in the
country of.their adoption. Some of them
had considerable money.' Before/he returns home he will visit the chief points of
interest in B.C.' It is probable he will publish a book on his travels.
Fell FromTraln With Child.
A teirible accident happened near North
Bay last week, whereby an infant has been
terribly injured. A man named Mitchell
was moving with his child from one car to
another while the train was in motion, and
somehow or other lost his balance and fell
overboard. Luckily he fell clear of the
track. When he came to hia senses he
saw > the lights of' houses near by, Ijut
on reaching them was refused admittance.
Mitchell finally crawled with his child into
a box car and there spent the night. In
the morning he walked to North Bay,
where medical help was obtained. The
child was found to be suffering from a
broken' thigh bone, but Mitchell's injuries
were confined to bruises. Mrs. Mitchell,
unconscious of the accident, travelled on to'
Montreal, and was in a fearful state when
she discovered her loss.
Accident at a Funeral.

on the side of the head, rendering him
unconscious. Several other persons'were
nearly precipitated on to the top of the
coffin. It was found necessary to summon
medical aid to McKim and take him to the
Hospital.

Fire Bug at Portage.     .
The police are now certain that a fire

Garland's premises removes all doubt on
the question. - A quantity of paper was
found purposely piled for the igniting of
the building, and it is reported that a fresh

lead to the discovery'of the delinquent.
The fire, which had only just started in
the shed when it was seen by a passer-by,
did little or no damage to the premises.

Bread Still Up in Winnipeg.    '
I has been stated that no reduction will
be made in the price of bread at Winnipeg,
despite the fact that Toronto bakers have
come down in price owin&to the reduction
in the price of flour. ,The bakers claim
that they have not made the'same profit on
their bread,' neither have they had the
aame amount of custom as when flour was
$2.50 a 100 lb. bag.' The drop in price of
45c. a-bag will materially assist them in
making up the loss sustained when flour
was_at $3.50 a sack and the price of_bre>d
remained the same, The small reduction
on the sack^ would, not help the baker to
turn out a cheaper loaf, as the reduction
per loaf is so small, and is only noticed
when large quantities are.prepared.
Buried Under Fifty Tons o. Rock.
Edwin Williams, of Phoenix, now lies in
hospital, after having fallen ten feet into
a steel car and being buried under fifty
tons of rock which was being loaded into
the car at the time. It appears that the
man. who wa* helping to load the car, fell
from the platform into the car unnoticed
by his companions, and ton after ton of
rock was piled up on the top of him. It
was eventually noticed that Williams was
missing, and it was concluded that he was
under the ore. A search was made and
he was extricated unconscious and badly
brujsed. It is expected, however, that he
will racqver. -

arrived - from the shore.' •' „' 'After
some .difficulty, owing to the oars
of the borrowed boat- being too
long,, the. overturned rcraft .was
finally reached, and after- a "rope
had been procured from the .rigging of the "'Ma Mignonne,"-* the
arduous task of towing ashore both
Mr. Dalian and his craft began. At
first, good headway was made, but
owing the hard usage the tow rope
broke, and a fresh joint'had to ibe
made. . After.a few, more frantic
struggles, the rescuer rnanaged to
land his own boat,'and that of his

that both were glad to stand ion .

Deputy   Speaker   of   Commons
, Has Earned His Position.
Cnciun!i>.ance-   weie    sue))   ,it    the
opening of   the   piesfent   Parliament
that   the   Speakership   of  the   House
could be filled by means of a natural
promotion.     In   the   last   Parliament
an English-Canadian  filled the chair
ui   the  House,   and   a   French-Canadian m the Senate    "Turn'about" is
the rule, and this made the way clear
for  Mr.   Marcil,   Deputy   Speaker  in
the last House, to go up higher.    A
deputy then  had  to  be  chosen,  and
the ^choice fell  upon  Mi    G   H   Mclntyre, of South Perth    He ought to
be able to fill the post, foi   since he
came into the Hoube, in 1904, he has
shown considerable ability and great
diligence    Always present at the sittings he often spoke, and 'if not exactly  a  heavyweipht  he  showed   an
undeistanding of the subject he discussed and fail facriTly of oxpiession
He will now have to posl himself on
the mlos of*procedure, for in the absence of tho Speaker he must preside
and  as  Chairman  of the  Committee
of the_ Whole  ho   will,  duiing manv
long sittings, dnect the proceedings.
Mr McJntyie is a n.five of St Mary's,
Ont, where he still  iodides, canying
on the, business of ,i  private banker
and exporter of Canadian  produce.
Of   course   tho   doput>   cannot   expect  fo   be  so  jrrnnd  a   man   as  the
Speaker, he.cannot cxppct so spacious
or fine apartments, nrrl on the other
hand he is not <'X|x>e'.d  to perfotm
the elaborate   nnd   r"p'<«ii,ive   social
duties that fall  to I'io Speaker's lot
Still   the   deputy .ha-   not   h°en 'forgotten in the "eeon mv" of the House
He has quaitois on the second floor,
comparatively   siu.il!    it   i-.  true,   but
much laiger th.in .a'pnvile member
can afford at a hotel   well appointed
and elegantly furnished     There is a
neat little  kitchen    big enough   for
preparing  the   meals  of. one   or  two
persons,    a    handsome   dining-room,
which "between meals," can be used
for  other   purposes,   a  sleeping-room,
and a fine 'ofTV"     A deputv Speaker
oaght   to   be   nbl"   to   make   himself

After His  Money-Was ,Gone.'
Any day on  the down-town streets
of Toronto, duiing* the oft hours-between the sale pf the morning papers
and the issuing of. the afternoon editions,  one   m<.y   see   knots of - boys,
some little morp 'h>n babes in years,
gathered in doorways, or lanes.    Ap
proaclWhein   ."in  yoy  will  see  that
they are newsboys shooting craps for
coppers  or  nickels-   They  pay-little
attention   to    Cimi. 1 ' passersby,   but
scatter at-sight of .t policeman. Some
of them are inveterate' gamblersT- and
not only wager their slender capital
bat 4so mortgage the future.   A business" man tells a little -story to illustrate this  tendency.
*He had been m the custom'of buying. ~_   paper   about   the 'same   hour
every night from ,i particular boy who
always occupied .the same corner. One
evening he tendered a'cent as usual,
but the lad  mVde po move to hand
over  a   paper     IiiMi\id   another  boy
rushed  up ami- flounced  the sporting, edition that the customer wanted.
Tho   latter,   how over,   waited   expectantly  for  his   rcgul.u   boy   and  then
asked:
"What's the mallei' While's my
paper?"
"Well, you - see," roph. I the urchin; shamefacedly; "me . nd him was
shooting craps'last night, and I lost
all my money, and you was a regular

Canadian Shipping Disasters.
One hundred and fifty lives have
been^lost on the North Atlantic within two months (November and De-

down and Mr. Raymer had asked
for them to be put up again in
time for the fair.
Aid. Ball said that the appropriation for the E. & A. grounds
was nearly if not quite exhausted,
and asked the city clerk to find
out how the account stood: It was
found out that over the amount
had been expended.
Aid. Ball said   the   deficit   was
likely to be very   awkward as  the
people would-not   vote   anything
more for that purpose and he   did
not know how the account   could
be dealt with, he had   pointed out
several times that   the money on
the E. & A. grounds was going fast
and    now   was   over    expended.
There was no   doubt   that   work
would have to be stopped at once
Aid. Elliott said that things   had
not been at all   satisfactory   in, the
work on the   grounds.    Originally
he was placed at the head of affairs
and consequently .he gave   orders.
Invariably  when   he   gave   these
orders they were   altered   by   the
mayor and it   was the   alterations
which had    caused   the   expense.
He refused to be   associated   with
the deficit saying it   was   not   his
fault.
Mr. Parkinson attended with a
plan of the forshore, and mentioned the lease that Messrs. Aviss and
the C. P. R. would require from
the council and that some arrangements should be made to have
these two rights settled as one
might possibly interfere with the
other.
The council agreed to have the
plan of the foreshore duly filed
and rights obtained. The matter
between Mr. Aviss and the C. P. R.
to be left in their hands to decide.
Aid. Bailey said the granting of
foreshore rights .by the council
would have to be carefully dealt
with.
The following 'accounts     were
handed   over     to     the     finance
committee to   be. paid   if   found
correct.

Aid. Cox reported on the Raymer
building and stated that he had
had a -conversation with Mr.
Raymer and asked for a. -window
to be placed '.in the lodgeroom
He considered it possible to place
a window in the east end of the
room and he thought Mr. Raymer
would make provision for it.
A long discussion ensued as to
the fire signals now in use, it
being pointed out that- .no one
knew the code and it had never
been printed. Aid. Bailey considered some system ceould be made
and kept to, and the public "made
acquainted with the system.

Opened
Last Thursday,' the .tennis
grounds, in Eli Avenue -were
formally opened for the first t time,
quite a "few people being present,
the guests of Dr. and Mrs. Boyce,
who extended a hand of welcome
to their visitors.
The grounds, which have been
laid out on the land owned by Dr.
Boyce, have been ' graded and
levelled off, and a wire fence, some
twelve feet high, placed around
them.
Three courts, each supplying
ample room for the players, have
been set out, and these were kept
busy during the afternoon.
A large and comfortable grand
stand completes the tout ensemble
of the grounds, and from this
position a good view is obtained of
the players. Owing, however, to
the many games played during the
afternoon, it was almost impossible
to keep track of the various players
and the scores of the games, but a
very fine match, and one which
well deserves mention, was witnessed between Messrs. Metcalf and
Taylor: the former beating the
latter by one game in the first set,
and four in the second.
Another game upon which much
interest was'centered, was practically the Kelowna ladies versus the
South Okanagan ladies. Mrs.
James and Miss Adams,of Kelowna,
playing Mrs. Mitchell and Miss Mo
Kenzie Greaves, both of. South
Okanacran. The two last named
partners carried off the game with
great credit. Other games were
played, too numerous to mention,
nearly all \he- best kown tennis
players turning out.
Doctor Boyce expressed his
willingness to give the use of his
grounds this year, if a tennis club
*was started, and four tournaments
agreed upon, and consequently the
the following committee was formed to start the ball rolling: F. A.
Taylor, W. A. Peters,' Metcalf, A.
H. Crichton, S. Long, G. K. Smith,
Ford and Mallam. It is possible
that these gentlemen will arrange a
tournament in the near future.
The want of a good tennis ground
has been badly felt in the past, and
to Dr. Boyce must be awarded the
credit of having supplied the need
in .a first class style, and thanks to
him *-for his generous interests in
furthering such healthy sport-

Itwas finally agreed to alter»jtjie

For a practice, one long whistle.
' For the business part of the city
one long, and one short whistle
the short whistle to be repeated
three times at intervals.
For the South of Mill Creek one

times at intervals.'
'For East of the City, one long
and three short whistles, the short
whistles to be repeated three times
at intervasl.
The one long whistle would
constitute a general alarm and
would not be repeated.
Aid, Bailey said he had- spoken to
Clement Vacher with reocrence to the
proposed rotary spray to be placed in _ the
[ park, and he, Mr. Vacher, had ' promised
to have the spray working during the fair
week.
"Chief Hidson attended and asked if the
city proposed putting on special constables
for- fair week. He said that now the
grounds belonged to the city the general
opinion was that the city should pay for
police protection. Under thoee~circum-
stances he considered that licenses, to sell
goods, and the receipts for booths should
be handed, over to the city.
It was pointed out that the .A & T.
Association' had the grounds given over to
them for one week, and could do what
they liked with it within reason. One
constable should be provided by' the
concil on the grounds, and Hidson was
authorized to act in that capacity, and to
obtain someone to look after the town. If
the A. & T. wished more protection or
protection at night, they would have to
provide it and pay for it. It was agreed
to look into the matter and see that adeqate
protection was provided.
Chief Hidson also asked for permission
to hire a rig for transporting prisioners from
the fair grounds to the coop as it had
come in handy last year. The request was
granted. - ,

THE RACES
On' Wednesday afternoon"• the
first races were run off, brilliant
sim smiling on proceedings.. The
new course, which was a pleasure
to look upon, had been rolled
during the morning and presented
a good level racing stretch which
is a credit to the town. The attendance, however, was small, and the
fact that some of the stock-judging
was done on the course, rendered
the afternoon's sport a little tedious.
Several good races were run off.
Great interest was centred in the
Polo Pony race, which was perhaps
the event of the afternoon. For
this race six starters were at the
post, and after one or two false
starts the horses got away clean.
A close finish was made between
Paddy, ridden by R. Lumbly, and
Benson's Polly, the former winning
by a nose, Smith's Fancy Me being
third.
In the Shetland Pony Race, four
started, arriving at the winning post
in the following order:
Brewester Martin's Tinker, with
A. Weddell up, 1st. J. E. Wheeler's
Trixie, with Harry Dillon up, 2nd.
Brewester Martin's Tessie, with Ian
Weddell up, 3rd. Weeler's Toots
also ran, time, 31 seconds.
The Harness Race was. called
off. owing to a lack of entries, and
Mr. J. N. Cameron won an exhibition race with his fine team.
Some little interest was taken in the Half
Mile Dash, for local horses, only five
starters being present.
From-the start, Scamper, owned by F.
Marcelle, was a strong favourite and finished away in front, although it had some
close running for a time with Dan, .which
came in second. Dan E, ridden by J.
Copeland, was. third, while Lady Dennjson.
and Brownie took up the rear. The time
was 57 seconds.
Three competitors were entered for the
Open three- eights mile dash, Ocean Wave,
owned by Eli Johnson, coming in first,
closely followed by Black Beauty.
One or two extra races were run for
boys' saddle ponies, Harry Dillon beating
Cyril Weddell in a good quarter mile
dash.
The afternoon's proceedings were finished with a match race between Buck and
Polly, polo ponies, Polly winning a good
race for Len Hayman, by a fair margin.
THURSDAY'S RACES
Thursday afternoon brought out a large
crowd to witness the greatest race meeting
Kelowna has ever known. The grand
stand was fairly packed, the attendance
exceeding all previous records.
1 The first race on the list was a Harness
Race for Okanagan owned horses. Three
competitors entered, the horses taking the
following places in the three heats:
DeHart's Kelowna Bill 2    11
J. N. Cameron's Fanny 12   2.
Cal. Blackwood's Joe 3   3
Keen competitioir was noticed in'the
Half Mile Dash pony race, five starters
being present. Black Beauty, ridden by J.
Brent, won in good style from Paddy, ridden by Marcell, G. K. Smith's Fancy Me
being third.   Time 55 sec.
The Open Half Mile Dash was another
interesting race, ending in a win for Melar
closely followed by. Royal Queen, Scamper
taking third place.   Time 53 sec.
The ssoring of the heats in the one mile"]
Trot or Pace was as follows:
Corsican 3       3*1        I        I
Little Jap 2       12      2      2
R. A. C. I        2;      2 retired    .
The Cowboys' Race was perhaps the
most popular of the afternoon, no less than
ten entries being received. A good start
waa made and the horses remained in a
bunch until about half way round, when
J. Bowes' Sunset Dan made away, winning
a good race from Albert, Brant being third.
At the first turn Jim Copeland was thrown
from his horse, but was unhurt.
The Five-eighths Mile' Open Dash was
not very well patronized, only three horses
starting. Royal Queen won in the short
time of 66 4-5 sec.
During the afternoon, teree match races
were run off, Ocean Wave beating Comet'
on a half  mile   dash,   the   former  horse,
making good time, ( 54 1 -5 seconds.)
Comet, owned by L. Hayman, pulled off
two match races, the first being against
Doc. Time, 50 seconds. The second was
against Willis' Esta, both races ending in
a popular win for L. Hayman.
The afternoon's proceedings closed with
a consolation race, only three starters being
present. Topsy, owned by Narcisua, beating Brownie and Lady Dennison, who came
in, the above named order. ■■:'.■?■■■
. Taking the exhibition as a whole, there
has not been a better show of fruit or
vegetables, nor better races in Kelowna
since the start of the A. & T. Association,
and to the directors 'of that association, as
Well as to the exhibitors and competitors,
congratulations are due for having carried
out successfully one qf the finest and best
fall fairs ever known in the district.

Dandy Dick At The
Opera House
Dandy Dick was produced at
the Opera House last Wednesday
a large and appreciative audience
being present.
The general' aspect of the play,
dealing as it does with matters of
a racy nature, certainly came at _n
oportune moment when ■■-.* the
majority of people who witnessed
the performance had in their minds
the races just witnessed at the
Fall Fair.
The acting ofthe various'mem
bers of the cast was good to the
extreme, and what might be said
about one, of a flattering nature,
would equally apply to the other
members. The play was well
staged and carefully prepared, and
great credit is due to Mr. and Mrs.
Legge Willis, who had the matters
of stage direction in hand, and
under whose auspices the show
was prepared. .Rarely has such a
first class comedy been rendered
by local talent with such a large
degree of success, neither is it
usual to see such good scenery as
was placed on the stage last Wednesday night. The Kelowna
Orchestra were in attendance and
from this direction came music of
such a nature, that the intervals
between the acts were considered
