A'short session was held in ;the
Council Chamber last Monday, the
adjournment being made soon after
nine-thirty. { Much important business, however," was touched upon,
but -£,very little business "« was
actually transacted.   . .
After the minutes of the^meetihsf
held on Monday last had been read
and adopted, the clerk read the
following "correspondence:
,G. H. E. Hudson, asking for
permission to,place a. window in
the passage between Axel  Eutin's

The matter was left in the hands of
the building inspector. L"'      ; A
Senator , Boetockr -, stating"- that
arrangements would' be made for
the Government dredge to dredge
Mill -Greek, provided the' corporation would bear'the expense.,,   It
was decided to leave the_matter in
the Rands of the'chairman  of  the
* Board   of * Works,   to   find   out  if
possible,"* the ^length  of1 time   the
'„ -    dffe'dge would require, to-finish the

"The mayorvsaid that it had been
agitated in the council for the past
two years, that a private bill be
procured,by'the City, to control the
irrigation system, but that it7had
been found in both cases to be
impracticable,' owing to the fresh
council coming iii at a time when
they were unable 'to advertise for
the required length of time (before
the" House met. He suggested
that' an advertisement might , be
put in the B. C. Gazette and in the
local papers, advertising the coun-
-il's. intention to apply for the
privilege, so as to give * the fresh
council a chance" of .Carrying it
x' „Ald, Bailey endorsed the mayor's
suggestion,, saying it .would be a
good thing to have the advertising
done so as to*have-it ready should
the next council desire to'work upon it; •>••.,,'',-.
" Aid Ball did not think the citizens
wduld take the.matter up.. y ,"
" The mayor did not see it in, {hat
light and suggested that Mr. Billings
of' Vernon, shoulq^' be communicated with, in reference to the matter,
so as to, have.,the bill1 prepared.
He\was ,of. the* opinion that the
present system of allowing the water»
to'run intottKe streets, would- have
to, be controlled, and - suggested
that the matter-should'he left to find
o\it the feeling' of the" rate-payers.-
"Aid.. Ball was"'of opinion*thatut
would' be ,a pity to' go«to,T:he'*ex^
pense" of drafting a'bill'and advertising" .if Jit Was not going to "be u_e'd.-
He hadiUnHerstorod that ffi.'Sulh-,
erland'had" stated that'there1 \yAs-a
clause- in--the present^ bill" whi6h
showed that the city' was* able to
take up. the distribution ofA water.
Mr. G. C. Rose,- however, pointed
but that it was",not,the case, and
that .activate bill was necessary.

Millie/whb^jvas. present,, pointed^*
out thatf experience had shown hirh
that su<^h,was the case. ^ He said
that a white1 kind of skum would
form on* the roof in course of time
and unjil'this formed, it w'as'useless
to paint it.L It was decided to make
further enquiries,"and to bring the
matter up at next meeting. • . ' 1
' Aid.'  Cox    reported    on   the
r>Trir>r>agd     nddifinn    .0 Mr..G."  C
Josselyn's store, and said that plans
were to be before the council- that
night.. (They were, however,'- not
present, and the matter would have
to be held in abeyance.
A general discussion then ensued
as to the amount of revenue that
was being derived from the pound
it,being stated that neither 'Mr.
Blackwood nor Mr. Beatty had
given" in'a^eturn. -■'--'
' It was suggested that a dfferent
mode < of ^collecting pound" dues
8__6uld-be made and that persons
who' had- theii',stock impounded
should make their payment direct
to the t city "clerk, and that the city
clerk should issue a cheque ta the
pound keeper monthly, in payment
of his'seiyices. - The matter -was
left in ..the hands of Aid. Elliott, to
see the persons in question, and „to
collect from them a statement.   '
Aid. Cox reported on the fire hall
having been'cleaned up, and; that
four men were sleeping there now.
Two of thesq, att.any. "rate, 'would
knowthow/to'runtbe engine. " 7-
Cupboards'-welre yet to' be built
to' accommodate the 'wearing
apparel of the. brigade, and this-is
.to be done by "one qf the brigade.
K'AltL Rowcliffe'stated Mr.. Russell was making the necessary additions and changes m the pipes, at
the power house, according to
Inspector Peck's report. The cost
would be about $125.
- lAld. Cox asked if the Dog Tax
was being looked 'after.      '       v.1'
A   meeting   of    the    Kelowna
(Literary   Institute   was   held   last
[ Friday in the   Reading   Room,   a
very poor attendance being present.
The president in commenting
upon the financial standing of the
jnstitution stated 'that about $40
w^s still required to put the institute on a level basis, this however
could not be considered as a, debit
for the furniture and fittings'of the
room, if taken as an asset > would
figure to the extent cf about $,100
to the good. He reminded those
present that the year of h's office
as president was up, and ' asked
that somepne should be nominated
in his place. The secretary ,Mi.
McTavish then read a letter asking'
if permission could be obtained to
use the room for debating purposes.
It was agreed to leave the matter
in the hand^ of,the newly appointed officers to make arrangements
with Dr. Boyce as tp whether ' he
would allow'debates, to be carried
on. tf , <■*'
The work of electing officers was
then undertaken, and* it was the
unanimous^ wish thatMr Leckie and
Mr. McTavish should again hold
office,'but both these .gentlemen
'desired to be relieved o£ their
responsibility. It - -was r therefore
decided to elect Mr. R. Mathie „ as
presideht, and Mr. D. Leckie" as
vice -president. - Mrv V. D.^ -Wa'de
being elected secretory. After a
vote.of thanks had been passed to
the retiring officers for the "good
Work they had done in connection
with tKe> in'stituie, ,and alsoto Dr.
Boyce'for the free use'of the'room
for .literar^/purposes,jhe. meeting

Apcloudy sky sowewhat marred
the attendance at the ceremony of
laying the corner stone of what is to
be the finest chu'eh in I^elowna1;
possibly in the valley. Despite the
fact, however, that rain had fallen
during the forenoon, and there
were strong indications of more to
followa fair number were present
to witness one of the most interesting ceremonies ever held in Kelowna. '
Among those present who took
prominent parts in the proceedings
were Mi. Price Ellison, M P.P.,
Rev. and Mrs. A. W. K. Herdman,
Mr. D. W. Sutherland, Mayor De
Hart, Revd. > Logie Mc Donald
(Vernon), Rev. C. White (Peachland), JFiev. S. J. Thompson (Methodist), and the Rev. D. J. Welsh
(newly appointed Baptist minister).
The proceedings were opened
by the singing of " All Hail,the
Power of Jesu's Name," the hymn
being set to the " Coronation " tune
with organ and cornet accompaniment. After thev' hymn, the pastor,
Rev.-A. W. K. Herdman, offeied a
short prayer, afterwards introducing
Mr. D. W. Sutherland 'to those
present, describing him as an old
timer in the valley, and associated
with the Presbyterian Church from
the start. He did not think anyone
was more fitted to perform the
present ceremony than) Mr. Sutherland, and asked for the trowel to
to be presented.        ,
The trowel,' a massive silver
article bearing an inscription, wds
then presented by Mrs. Herdman,
wife of' the -pastor. ' Upon the

to be lowered. He then declared
the stone to be rightly'and truly
According to custom several
articles were then placed in the
cavity ins the stone, including .„ a

Literary Society at Rutland'
A .few of the neighbours gathered nt the
home of Mrs7 Goodrich, of Rutland, on
Tuesday evening last to put into concrete
forpn a .desire which had been freely expressed for the formation of a literary and
debating society.
A number of gentlemen expressed their
willingness to subscribe'towards the purchase of. the old achoolhouae at Rutland,
lately, advertised for sale, and having it
renovated -and moved pear the store. A
place of meeting for, all purposes was
felt to be needed, and an excellent method
of supplying the want wm thus presented.
Mr. Goodrich undertook to*'secure sufficient "subscribers to complete the purchase and moving of the building.
i The organization of the Literary Society
was then > proceeded with, and a v> eckly
(Friday) meeting decided upon, to be held
by i invitation at neighbours' homes until
the building is ready,       y
Mr. and Mrs. Goodrich kindly invited
the first meeting tor take place at their
house, Friday evening, October, 15th, being
the date' fixe<J, when the organizing,of'the
society will be completed.'
On October 22nd,' a1 musical eyening
was called for, and placed in the hands of
Mrs. Goodrich and. Miss Fullerton to
arrange, and on the-29th a pVibhc debate
was fixed, to be >rrangfed by Dr Baker
and Mr, Goodrich,, tho subject being,
" Woman's Franchise."   .  '   '    •
The organization is.uve understand, open
to anyone interested, and we are asked to
say that ft cordial irritation is given to anyone, in the district. -,
18^2. - The same year saw the beginning ot the Presbyterian Church
of Kelowna, the first religious services being held by the Rev. Paul
Langille, of Vernon. During the
following five years the pulpit was
supplied by theological students,
who were changed by'the Home
Mission Board semi-annually, their
names and terms of office b-ing
as follows: In the summer, of
1893 Mr. McVicar started the mission,, folio wed in the fall by Mr.
Reid. In the following spring Mr.
Millar took up the work, to, be
followed by Mr. Peck in the winter
of 1894-5. Mr. McGregor then
held office for six months, followed
by4 Rev., McKay in 1895, Mr. Wallace- in 1896, and in the winter of
'1896 by Mr.-Alex Dunn, M.A.~
,\n 1897 the Rev. R. Boyle was
placed in charge, and held the
position for three years. It was in
the same year that the church at
present in use' was built, being
.opened on Christmas, Day, 1897.-
Wn 1900, the Rev. P. D.<Muir
accepted a call, and held the office
,until 193, when he resigned' to accept a call in the east. <
The year 1903 saw the congreg_
ation 'raised from a Home Mission
Field to an augmented charge, with
the'Rev,(C. L Foote temporarily
in 'charge. This gentleman held
the office until June 1st, when^he
Rev. W. "Bennett was called and
entered,into his .duties in September of the same   year.   After "a
year of fruitful work he was compelled to leave the congregation
owing to ill-health, and resigned
his association with the church in
1905. During this year,th'e present ' pastor, the Rev. A. W. K.
Herdman, B<A., was , placed in
charge, and. still continues to do
good work in connection 'with the
church, and has worked hard to
attain the object for which the
congregation' were* assembled there
that day ..name the laying, of the
corner stone for one of the finest
churches in the valley. <
He mentioned the names of Mr.
Curts, and ' Mr. McQueen as old
timers who had been energetic in
the building up of the Pi esbyterian
Church, and how, from >a mere
handful,' the district had grown until
the old church was inadequate to
hold the congregation. He hoped
the church would not be too large.
The cosb he stated to be about
$18,000, an obligation which he
hoped would soon be worked'off
by'those interested.    ' •
The ReV. S. J. Thompson then
addressed* the assembly.<c He complimented ' -the Presbyterians on
being the.'fi'rst to, erect a 'church
which' would > be.,a landmark and
an asset to* the town. '-He^remark-
ed that1 although the i Presbyterians
were first:' then Methodists would
sqpn . foltaw. with' a'.nfew church.
To'put'up a church worth'$ 18,000
he looked upon as an'evidence" of
good faith, and "he" wished^them
every success in'thcenterprise.f z*.
r-The Rev. WelshjithenewiBaptist
minister;* gave ** af-/Wry'**eloquerit
speech in which<heisaid-that(40njys
having arrived that .'day-1, he was
sojjiewhat at a disadvantage. ''He
had not met Hany\ of his flock yet,-
witlrthe'exception of two', or three.
He * however considered he,, could
speak.with confidence in congratulating r the _ Presbyterian, people"'on
having the' foundation/ completed
of so fine a church. 7 ''.    . ,'•, '.
The next person to. address the
meeting-'was the Rev.yWhite,l,of
Peachland, who spoke of the1" very
large increase in- the' ministry;*
When he first arrived there' were
three clergymen " in''" attendance
in the'valley. 7 Nqw no less than
seventeen were working along the
shores of the lake, and he had
heard that another ,was'to arrive
soon. , • u,
Rev. Logie,McDonald, of Vernon
also added his congratulations to
the people ,ot Kelowna on, the
handsome church that was being
erected.        , ' \
Mr. Price Ellison, M.P.P,; was
the next speaker. He had tried,
he said, to induce his wife to come
came' here'six years ago, Mr. D..W.''
Sutherland was the superintendent ,<
of the  Sunday School, and  had/
'■ - -Hi
 w             'Tv''|
done  much' to  help''''the  churchy ^"":
along.   Mr. J. Ball and 'MrC'E.

the   Presbyterian  pulpit,   When j, w,
he first came the lapd upon which , -*?'.

of 164 acres with ye'ryj few- dwelling houses/and'now it waVone of

was a valuable asset' to the'* town.
When*-prospective' settlers"asked
about''the'country, one of their
first questions .was: /''What schools
and what; churches have/you ?"
He congratulated the Presbyterians
on the move they were making.. '   .
A few ^brief words ""of -thanks , ,-
were then "spoken by the"1 Rev- A. (t
W. K. Herdman, followed by the
singing 'of, ^the   Doxplogy. - - The'

presence the people really wanted,
and possibly she would have' come
down instead of himself if" Mr.'
Sutherland had not called upbn
him and toldhim his presence was
required. He did not know why
they wanted him unless it was for
the manual labor lifting the stone.
He congratulated the people upon
the building they were about to
put up, and also upon their boldness in spending $ 18,000 on their
church. It showed a strong faith,
in the future of their town. 'He
himself was a strong believer in
the great'future which was in store
for the city of Kelowna. They
were wise, too he said in not waiting until they had the money. ' He
advised his hearers not to be afraid
of borrowing money. Every time
he had had a chance he had i borrowed money, andj tby doing so
had to7work to,,pay off,.the debits.
" Place obligations ^up'on 'yourselves" . he spid,- " and you will
work' to fulfil them." He .hoped
the church .would soon be paid forr
as th& sooner it was paid fpr the
better* \The i very .fact that a'Tdebt
was incurred-smeant that the c'6n«

There is an air air of cheerful optimism and confidence in
jhe future about the action of
the   Presbyterians   in   setting
about the building of the fine
church,  the corner -stone   of
which was laid last Thursday
afternoon,  which speaks volumes for the position of Kelo-
na in the minds of its citizens.
When a body of careful men
such as Presbyterians usually
have  the reputation of being,
have the temerity to embark
$18,000  in  the  erection of a
church, you may depend upon
it that their faith in the growth
and progress of their town is
firm and well grounded.   Trust
-f a 'Scotsman  for seeing a long
"way ahead; and although not
all the Presbyterians in Canada
are Scotch, yet there is always
a   sufficiently strong Scottish
element in any   Presbyterian
. church to leaven the whole.   It
is   a   well, worn   truism   that
where enterprise is safest you
are sure to find a " Mac,"—and
some will-add—-and where the
fight' is hottest you are sure to
find a "Mick"!    Be that as it
ma-y,  there can  be  no doubt
-■' that the new.church will prove
a safe investment, and incident-
- ally,  an   additional ornament
■ and asset to the city of Kelowna.
' Our worthy Mayor, who is
nothing if not a  "live" real
estate man, was not  slow to
-point but in his remarks at the

S great advantage to the city as
,a whole by the erection of a
'[-permanent   > and     handsome
church   building,   which   will
probably be second to none in

„Xhe beginning of Presbyter-
• ianism here eighteen years ago
was contemporary with the
beginning of the town itself,

The following list of instructions
regarding customs entries consular
certificates, duty, etc., have been
received from die secretary of the
Spokane Apple Show:
1. Exhibits can be shipped from
Canada, shown at the Second

made through other ports will
possibly be subject to duty before

3. Exhibits valued at less than
$100 do not require a consular's
certificate, but the regular bill of
lading and invoice must be forwarded to Spokane for presentation to
collector of customs at the time of
4. AS SOON AS exhibitors
haye decided DEFINITELY on the
variety and extent of their exhibits,
and provided same is over $ 100 in

Consular agent, and a consular invoice obtained from him, a copy of
which MUST accompany shipment. Consuls or Cousular agents

Canadian centers: Vancouver,
Fernie, Nelson, Lethbridge and
Calgary. It is very IMPORTANT
that the consular invoice be obtained as early as possible before
shipment is actually made, so that
serions delays will be avoided.
5. At the time shipment is due
to arrive in Spakane, and' if
exhibitor is not already represented
there, the Secretary of the Second

Peace River Man Expatiates Uplarf
Wealth ot His District.,
The _ wonderful resources, magnificent distances and future possibilities
of the Peace River country lyere recounted to a Winnipeg Free Press reporter one day recently by an enthusiast in the person of J K. Cornwall, who has spent the last twelve
years there. He is not only impressed
with the development under way .in
the vast country northwest of Edmonton, but is using every endeavor to,
educate the outside public to the
riches lying there unexploited.
"People," he said, "are' gradually
becoming cognizant of the tremendous
wealth that lies buried in the feitile
northland, but it is really hard to
properly impress the public with the
extent of <he navigable streams, thp
wonderful productiveness of the soil,
the possibilities for cattle ranching,
and with what is of most immediate
importance, the necessity for development of the lumber.'fishing and raining industries.
"There are 3.500 miles of navigable
streams in the Mackenzie watershed." said Mr Cornwall "Can yon

Such an idea is I'b'urd. All that is

The /'Stork" has probably the most
remarkable record of any modern
sailing ship. „ At, Lloyd's she was
known among ,the marine insurance
speculative biokers and others as the
"Spectre Ship." In the course of
nearly thirty years' seTvice the stout
old ship has been the cause of many
exciting incidents at' Lloyd's. > Perhaps her mpst' notable achievement
was last year,' when she had an1, unusually large cargo' of valuable furs,
and was many months overdue.
.According to Lloyd's the Teinsur-
ancej rates jumped seventj*#ve gui-
ncniJ per cent, and just after this
sudden rise the vessel was reported
as passing up the .Channel. ' Insurance speculators were badly hit, -as
the rates at once went down, but
again for several, weeks nothing was
seen or heard of her at any port along
the English or French coast.
The 'company's officials made enquiries off Land's End, and found
that the look-out had sighted, through
the blinding drift a vessel^ answering
tho description of "the 'mysterious
"Stork," having on her bows the letters "Str-H." Still the "spectre*''
did not reappear in the Channel.* The
insurance rates jumped up once more
and the "scare" gave large holders
of Hudson Bay stock a very "bad
twist.'and money was lost on all sides,
except Lloyd's, who seemed to feel
no great anxiety 'over the safety,of
the much-looked-for "Stork."' A few
days' following the sharp, acute pang
of the shareholders, the "Stork" calmly sailed into the Channel with'a fair
wind, and was again reported, from
Land's End. <-, ,       ,
Some four or five years , ago _the
"Stork" arrived in dock twelve
months .behind time, having got jammed in the ice in James' Bay through
sailing from Moose, Factory too, late
All hope of• ever seeing her again
was abandoned, and the re-insurance
rates rose to ninety guineas per cent.
On the 'whole the Hudson Bay Co.
have been very lucky in the safe
landing of their fur cargoes in their
centuries of existence."  **

lately having visited the great business
centres to estimate the value of the business done by the Hudson Bay Company.
It has long been considered that the
pioneer firm of Canada have been contemplating selling out in order to extend their
business in the fur buying trade in the
remote regions of the north, and possibly
their interests in the general, mercantile
trade will now be handed over. The
deal is likely to be closed as negotiations
were considered very far advanced during
the recent tour of Lord Strathcona who is
governor of the Hudson Bay Company!
Millions of dollars will be involved in the
deal, if it goes through, but the information
has received a certain amount of contradiction from the heads of the Hudson Bay
who hold back giving any details.

, Doubted, Premier's Check.
Two Mattawa men'who came to Ot*
tawa recently to show Sir Wilfrid
Laurier a work of woodsmen's art in
the shape of hand-carving had the unfortunate experience of being jailed in
Hull for a few hours owing to suspi-
, oions aroused when they attempted to
pass a check for $25 bearing the Premier's signature. The two shanty-
men,'by name Lecompte and Nault,
'were kindly received by tho Premier,
who proved himself a true patron of
art by giving them a check for $25
in exchange'for the result of their long
hours of - labor as self-taught-, wood-
carvers. But when they came to cash
the cheek at a Hull butcher store
the polioe were communicated with
and the innooeot neophytes in' art
were locked up on a charge of forging the name of the Prime Minister
to the check. Explanations followed
two hours later from Sir Wilfrid, and
the men were released.'

These apples are grown at the Carnegie

Few companies hold the reputation the
San Francisco Opera Company do herr,
and fewer actors can claim to have so
strong a hold on the affections of the play-
going public as Teddy Webb, for it was
largely due to him that so many peopje
flocked' to the Opera House last Friday
and Saturday to Hear "The Gay Parisiehne''
and "The Runaway, Girl,",.
"The Gay Parisienne," which filled the
bill   on   Friday, was  infinitely   the better
play, the whole, production going with a
swing  from" start to finish.   The musical
numbers introduced were admirable.    An
enthusiastic' encore'greeted   Mr.   James
Stevens  at  theiend 'of "La Marseillaise.*'
; Quite, a -.number-;of-French people were
present, and  it. was  hard, to keep them
still in their places .during the magnificent
rendering of their national anthem.
,   Miss-Mabel Day acted  the part of the
;   gay Parisienne with versatility and sorite-
liness, wiimig the affections of the audience
;   from her first appearance on the stage.
< Teddy i Webb's  voice   has  only • to be
heard  in   the' 'wings  to bring a round of
'  expectant applause, and when he got on to
the stage he made the terrible mistake of
singing  that  popular  song,  "Questions,"
the audience demanding from him no less
than  eight  encore verses..,, At the eighth
he switched on to "Oh, Be Careful," and
the audience let him go at that.
Other members of the cast did well in
their respective parts,. .working well together to make the play a great success.
Saturday brought out an even larger
audience to witness " The Runaway Girl."
The production was good, but lacked the
" go " of the previous*-night owing to the
play not being well enough rehearsed.
One song rendered by Miss Georgia
Campbell we noticed was'sung dangerously near the prompter's box, and although
the song was' all about the delights of
"Society," there was a look on Miss
Campbell's face which showed that she
did not quite like the society she was in at
that moment—the society of uncertainty.
A fine piece of acting was done by Miss
Aimee Leicester (Mrs. Teddy Webb), her
Lady Coodle being the work of an accomplished artiste, and one rarely met with in
touring companies.
Mr. Webb, transformed from v a braw
bonnie Scotsman to a heavy-weight jockey
kept the audience in roars of laughter
throughout the evening. He certainly has
a great way of finding out if the house is
full by conducting his train of followers in
his song, " Follow the Man from Cooks "
right round the auditorium through the
audience. His local hits at the sawdust
crossings, etc., and his dig at Billy Lloyd
Jones and his Great Trunk Mystery, were
received with a tremendous ovation.
A greater commedian has never before
graced the boards of the Kelowna Opera
House, and we look forward with pleasure
to his appearance here again, together with
his first-rate company.

"Honk I    Honk I"
Snapshot Sam, striding jauntily along
the lane with his new Kodak, skipped to
one side and waited. He waited quite a
minute. No motor having passed him in
that time, he turned round to see what
was the matter. Nothing was in sight but
an old farmer driving half a dozen Jersey
cows. " Curious I " muttered Snapshot
Sam, and continued on his way.
"Honk I    Honk I"
He turned round rapidly. The noise
was right behind him this time. Yet not
a petrol tank could he descry.
" Wasn't that a motor-horn | heard ? '*
he asked, as the old farmer drew up
" Bless ye, na-o I " chuckled the farmer.

return, I'm about played out. Is the cows

"Yes, long since," replied his wife,

" "Yes."
"Chickens locked up ? "
"Wood chopped for 'mornin ? "
"Waggon wheel mended, an' ready t'

"Well, then," concluded the exhausted
owner with a sigh of relief, "let me have

this year, the estimated distance being

C. P. R. Extends Winter Seroice.
The headii of the operating department
of the Canadian Pacific Railway are conferring together with the idea of extending
the winter service in the Kootenays, and
also to run a double service on the main
line between Vancouver and Calgary.
This will possibly mean that the double
daily passenger service from Montreal will
go through to the Coast as, usual, instead
of only being carried to daigary, as in past
years. The reason tor the continuing of
the double service is the increase' in -the
passenger service from Calgary, west.      <>
cut off the supply to the city arc lights, unless their accoant is paid by the end of the
year. It appears that the charge of $90 an
arc light per annum is considered to be too
much by "the council, and the finance
committee will not agree to paying the bill
if more than $60 a light is charged. ;

Canada Now Has Quite Respectable
List of Forgotten Bards.
Ontil quite'jeceiitlj, it used to be a
rjoke among^editort that one in every
ten of the pupils turned, ofit of the
nigh school in the average, Canadian
townr was a poet " I'n very truth the
spread of eduction, has produced
verse-writers -innurnw..'_le, most' of
whom, howevci, ^iireunity early to the
inevitable and accept 'more.hdmdrum
pursuits But it cannot belaid that
the number*; of. Canauiair'pbetr, has
increased in ratio to" the population."
Rather is the reverse true.'"       */
Comparatively few readers of the
present generation are aware that the
late Rev. Dr Dew art, who passed
away but two or thiee years ago, as
long ago as 1864 published an anthology entitled' "Selections. from' Canadian Poets, with Occasional Critical
and Biographical Notes, 'an Introductory Essay on Canadian Poetry.* By
'Edward Haitley Dewurt." This volume was published by John (Lovell,
81 Nicholas* street, MontieaL'.qnd is
now rather scarce, although its ^circulation was considerable.*'     "A J,
Now, in 1864 the population of Canada was much less than it is/tq-day,
yet the volume covers1 305 pages, ,apd*
,one counts* over' cightj contributors:
Moreover, in making his selections,
the young Mr. Dewurt of' that' day
was ^careful to choose the "work of
.yerse-wnters who paid heed>^to ^the
jaws of rhyme and metre.       \ •/"
These verses are not of the type'that
appeared in the poet's corner of the
old-fashioned country weekly1 by, any
means.. Some of the names' that-rfig-
ure m the anthology are still familiar,
even to the young' Canadian oj. the
twentieth century — those of D'Arcy
Magee, Wm. McLachlan, John Eeade,
Charles Sangster, and Charles I^eavy
Sage, to cite a few instances.     -*
Of i the many j oung ladies whose
names figure in Hie list, one -cannot
help "wondering what became of them
—whether they continued to (write
poetry after they got married. J'No
doubt in many a Canadian household
,of to-day thprq is a cherished copy
-of this old volume, precious''because
it contains'in clear print ?verses/'t"hat
grandma wrote when she" was£afyoung

-. It "will, be seen, also, that'the-poets
of half a century ago *we_e7by no
means "backward in seeking the fame
that book-covers are supposed t6^ bestow, for in many cases the selection
presented is credited to.some, already
published volume of the poet's _Qom-
,plete works. In fact, it isfjibv-ous
that in'that day," when literature,, in
the United States was, practically con^
fined to what i« known ag1 "the- New
England school," there was'a, local
impulse toward verse-writing and a
local market for its output. ,    ' ^

Ooer-Indulgence Brings Death.
In the inquest on the death of Alexander
Waugh, held at Gait lately, 'the jury
returned a verdict placing the blame for
death on self-indulgence, an overdose of
patent medicine,. , f "
The evidence submitted went to 'prove
that deceased was a habitual drinker, and
had been drinking just previously to his
death. The post-mortem showed no signs
of poison, but a bottle of a certain patent
medicine was exhibited, and1 it was affirmed that deceased had . taken the balance
after looking for a bottle of. liquor.
Under the Influence.
''The death of Wm. Hendrie, an ex-hotel-
keeper under rather peculiar circumstances
at'-Wee's Beach Hotel, near Sarnie, on
August 30th, aroused considerable interest
in that locality/ According to the verdict
of the jury which sat on the case this seems
to be another result of whiskey's influence.
The verdict was-as follows: "We. the
jury - empannelled to inquire into the
cause of the death of the late W. Hendrie
believe that the said W. Hendrie came to
his dead, as the result of falling on a
bedpost in his room in the' Wee's Beech
Hotel, on August 30th, which injury** in
our opinion, was caused by an accident
while said Hendrie waa under the influence
of liquor'."
A Fatal Spree.
George Hubbard, a young man of about
35 years of age, was found lying in a yard
near Streetsville 'early ^Sunday, morning,
dead, with aihalf finishe'd bottle of whiskey
in his pocket.' The man hed been' working for some y£mt / for Mr^\£leephki, a
gentleman residing near/Streetsville, but
was discharged-for drinking." He went'on*'
a spree and,ended up last Saturday .night
almost dead>'drunk in.; a yard near the
town. 'He was J Asunder a tree" by a
passerby, and ^ent' to .sleep apparently
quite happy." taffy Sunday, morning Mr.
Falconer, owner of ^the place,''discovered
him.Tpujje dead/ His face was black, and
there was blood around his mouth as if
the blood had rushed/to^his liiead' and
suffocated him.    '

Alexander  McDonald, i once one of
the richest.men in the Klondike, drop,
pod^dead'ificently   at ( Dawson.    He
was "dredging    property^ pear Clear
Creek m tho Stownrt rivnr, country.'
»   The temperatjire wj»s 60 degrees be-
10w zero when  lip went out t(.  split
wood for his cabin  fire.   While getting the wood he tlted of heart failure.
McDonald went to" the Klondike during the first rush.   He q.iickly acquired many claims, securing several of
the best groups in the camp.   A London syndicate offered $11,000,000 but
MoDonald held' hia, claims at $30,000,"

reverses he lost most of his property.
His latest venture in dredging property in the Stewart district has not
as yet amounted to much.   He hoped
to realize good returns.
An exchange puts it this way : The tele
phone girl sits still iniier chair and listens
to voices from'everywhere L_SheJksars a!!
the gossip from everywhere, she hears all
news : sh^ knows who is happy, and who
is drinking booze.   She knows of our troubles, she knows of our strife,  she knows
every man who is mean to his wife-   She
knows  every time we are  out  with  the
boys, she -hears the excuse  every fellow
employs.   She knows every woman who
has a dark past; She knows every  man
who is inclined to be "fast." In fact there's
a   secret   'neath 'every eaUcy    curl   of
of that demure telephone girl.   If the telephone girl would  tell all she  knows it
would turn all her friends into her bitterest
foes.    Shejvould sow a small wind that |
would soon grow into a gale, engulf us in
trouble, land us in jail; she-could let go a

halFour wives Jo sue for divorce.'  She
could mix all the church people up, in a
fight, and|turn. all our days into sorro wing
nighti" In fact she could keep everything
in a stew if she'd tell a tenth ofthe things
she, knew,  now don't it make youre head
>n a "whirl, when you think what you owe
to the telephone girl.    -

Aid. Cox copsidered the matter should
be taken from the "point of view as being
dangerous, and that electric light should
be provided.  ' .
It was agreed to leave the matter in the
hands of tbe Chief of the Police to see
the,electricians"in town qs to^the cost- of
the installation and.wiring,.also'that that
he should get a quotation for putting up
a high board fence to prevent prisoners
seeing out into the street.
Mr. Stark," of the Dominion Securities
Corporation was present arid congratulated
the council upon^the1 business-like way_ in
which' they conducted the'troubles of the
town. ' He waTpleased to rneet the'council,
and's would 'be ' able ,to_take#back a ve\y
favqrable report to the head office. The
company had never received papers' in
better.shape than they were received from
the Kelowna City Council. The business
like way the evening's proceedings had
been dealt "\vith had added a feeling of
security, in dealing with the city's deben
hires.' iHe however warned the city to go
slow, .and to. obligate themselves .with
indebtedness very carefully. He was verv
much' encouraged with what he had seen
ih Kelowna and the permanent improve
ments made, but when stating that the
Corporation,-he represented would be
pleased to adyiseon any further business,
he did not invite indiscriminate borrowing
of money.
*» The mayor, in thanking Mr. Stark'for
hia',|remarks, stated' that'the city would
possibly require to borrow about $3,000 in
power house, and asked what the present
terms would b*e.
' Mr. Stark advised a straight term bond
with,interest at five per cent., as the council should be able to look after a sinking
fund. y
' The city, clerk asked for permi»«ion to
place advertisements in the local papers,
and also to have' bills printed to inform
people that the last day they could get
their names on the voters' list was the end
ofthe present month. Some dissatisfaction
was felt that little publicity was.given to
the fact last yealr, and many were disop-
pointed at not having their names put on
the list. The city clerk was given per-
'mission to provide'for the necssary publicity of the matter.
He''also stated that several persons were
in arrears with their light accounts; and
asked what steps he should take to collect
same.. ' ,-» '   -
Upon motion of Aid. Elliott, seconded by
Ald/.Rpwchffe, it was agreed* that the
'delinquent should be given 10 days in
winch |d pay pp, anjj if the accounts \frere
not paid by that time the light would be
cut off and steps taken to enforce collection
of all back duetr,v *>
