1 staling that the Institute, was discontinued and that a- grant 'would
not be looked for from the council
this season and also asking"for-the
electric light to be cut off and bill
( rendered to date.        '
r Several of the aldermen* expressed their regret that the institute had
to be closed, and,instructions were
given to have the light cut'off and
,   the matter.of pavmentadjusted. -
1,   A* letter.was also-read from Mr.
«-'C.  G. Clement, asking,-that   tKe,
_. council would' pay"$ 1,00p,*' as' part
payment on the^ideWalk.inCGlenn
rAvenue, and'also •. thatlhe sideWalk
'' would be .finished in jtwo, days.   A
'request was also made'thajj-.the final
^payment. on' the' ypoiiftt-^ house
,"-' J ' fully.,complergd, and, the., roof put
\A ' in good shape! It,was decided^to
■*•"" " ascertain if all waB in order and if
found so. to pay the account.
',' TKe, plans of the extension < .to
Oak Hal!> and also' the' addition ,to
-. CUC. 'Josselyn's premises'.were
. " £ubr_iitted. Aid. Cox stated that in
r_ -tKeiomer^caseTie' had "fo*und*the
Xy plans and specifications satisfactory
' ' ^ya8.the extensioh<was*only ten-por-
• ■£" •'"> "WXVin the latter case^Mr. Josselyn
" 'v" . 'waii" 'present, and * explained r his
addition. .7     ■"■_•,     f   ' r  . .
The general opinion of the aldermen was that the addition included
too7 "much wood, and,-several
suggestions were made to Mr.
'Josselyn that the addition" .was
made of ' brick. -Mayor DeHart
asked how many years Mr. Josselyn
wished the addition to hold good
for. .'-..-■
"    Mr. Josselyn stated that his add-
. > itioh was by no means to be
considered a' permanent one, hut
would take place as soon as the
, town showed enough ^growth to
warrant a new building.
Mayor DeHart considered permission could be given to let the
addition stand for,two years, and
that if at the end of that time an
.extension; was needed application
' cduld'be made to the council for
such an extension. It was consider
ed that it would be better to get
the advice' of Mr. Burne' on the
matter, and' it was consequently
left in the hands of Aid. Cox to
report at the next meeting. *"
t  Aid. Elliott was 'asked for a re-
- port with reference to the, account
of Mr. C. Blackwood for pound
fees collected. He," however, asked
that an extension of time should be
given him for his report, as he had
not yet been able to .verify some of
-the items.        '
Mayor DeHart reported that the
council had met Mr. Aylmer, the
! Dominion engineer with reference
to the dredging of the mouth of
'Mill Creek." % A survey had1 been
made and an estimate given of
$2.50 to $3.00 per'foot. The mouth
would be dredged tot a 'depth of
about four feet.   The work could
' be done now,'but M.V Aylmer had
'suggested that it would be better
, to wait until spring. In the meantime the city <-,ould get on with the
building of a break-wwater made
of long limbers,-willow -brush and
rock.- The bfeak-water would be
required on the south, side andi a
little on the   north   side.''. This
would prevent the mouth filling in
' A suggestion was also made that
a foreman should be sent down to
have the,work started right, but the
mayor considered the whole project,? was one for next year's
council. "*
' >A remark was also dropped with
reference to the soundings taken
up the creek as far as Abbott St.
bridge, a depth of from-one and a
half to three feet only, being found
most places. The maybr stated
that the work would take between
$1,000 a'nd$ 1,500 to do "properly.
Mention was made of teams
driving over the new sidewalk in
Pendozi Street, to deliver goods to
Messrs, Willits & Co. It was considered"* that even ' though - the
precaution of putting boards down
was employed, damage might be
done to the sidewalk and the
practice must be stopped. Mention
was made of the fact to Mr. Willits
and a promise practically obtained,
to i place a gate in the, fence in the
lane which runs at the b^ack of their
premises. ."' ," .     ''   -

Dunhards frota Washington
Settle in the Okanagan
The colonization of the Cherry
Creek district of the Okanagan
Valley with Dunkards from toe
state of Washington, projected last
spring is now,being rapidly.accomplished. Already several car-loads
of effects belonging to the,settlers
have passed through Vancouver
to Vernon, the Cherry Creek lands
being distant about thirty **> miles
from that point. Much of the land
in this district is owned by'Mr. J.
S. Rear/ of Vancouver, .who has
been,largely instrumental in bringing about the immigration of-the
Dunkards. Already a number,are'
on the ground, others are shipping
their effects into the country, and
still others have started" trekking
northward over, the boundary,line,
moving their household goods by
easy stages in wagons.      _    .,
The Dunkards are declared to be
among the highest class of settlers,
being a thrifty law-abiding people,
,who^ in their religious beliefs resemble the Quakers. They' are
strongly attached to the 'land,'and
the great success which \ attends
(heir agricultural and horticultural
efforts bespeaks* the energy and
hard work which they put into
their undertakings.—Province.

Ald.-^Cpx stated that he had
heard ,-several,'complaints with
reference^ the length "of time the
building/; occupied y by j Messrs.
Crawford'& Co., and owned _ by
Mr. H.'W»\\Raymer, waa allowed
to stand in'main'street.' |^The city
clerk- was', asked. when - the time
limit for the- temporary sojourn of
the* building ih main street expired.
It wa8, found that the building was
only autorized_, to stay in position
until September, and the aldermen
considered it was time it was
moved. u
Mention was made of the boxes
and papers that were at the' side
of the, building, again making it
anything but safe from-fire. It was
agreVd-.©-give- Mr^Raymef~untii
the 1 st of November to move the
the building, the concession being
granted owing to the delay caused
in building the new store and the
non-arrival ofthe glass.
It was also pointed out that the
sidewalk'that was damaged when
the building was moved into its
present position, had not been
repaired. It was considered advisable to have this done as soon
as the building was removed,. but
that the'removal should not'be
made over sidewalk again.
The matter of both the moving
and the repair of the sidewalk were
left in-the hands of Aid. Bailey, to
make arrangements with Mr.
'. Aldr Bailey^ asked if any steps
had been taken to have the electric
light plant tested.
The mayor considered it was a
question that should be looked into at once. He anticipated a' trip
to the coast during the next few
days, and1 when- there would see
the Hinton Electric Company and
make arrangements for Mr. Hall sto
to inspect the plant and give his.
report. 'It was pointed out that'
Mr. Hall did "the work last year,
and made a satisfactory report.'"-
, It was also asked if the report of
Inspector Peck, with reference> to
the recent accident at'the^power
house,, had been received. "The
city clerk, however, replied in the
negative,   j1'   , r**    "£■"

1 Several Indians returning from
hop picking at Vernon passed
through here yesterday on their
way back home to the Columbia
River district. In the evening they
gave a pow-wow in the exhibition
park, a good attendance being
present. Gaily dressed in feathers
they performed all the rites and
ceremonies of their race greatly
amusing the audience assembled.
The greatest amusement however
was after the dancing was over,
when they squatted around the fire
built in the middle of the track and
dealt with the proceeds. The chief
of the tribe was one Charlie Will
Pdlken, who informed us that
about  three'  times  the    number
would perform next year.

Last Friday was a proud day for
Messrs. Lawsons, Ltd., when they
opened the doors of their magnificent new store to the public. The
new building, which occupies the
same site as the old frame building
from which they moved at the
beginning of the present year into
temporary premises in the Keller
block, is a fine modern brick and
stone structure nearly double the
size of the previous one, and affords
eloquent testimony to tho rapid
strides the firm has made and the
important position it has attained.
The new store is probably one
of the largest in the in the interior
of the province, and as it is erected
on one of the most commanding
sites in the city, it is one of which
not only it enterprising proprietors
but the whole of Kelowna may be
justly proud.
The building has two large entrances on Bernard Avenue with
large window frontage, and extends
backward to the Opera House, with
large warehouses in the basement
of the latter.
But imposing as the store looks
from the outside, a peep inside
reveals still greater magnificence.
A traveller remarged to us as we
were looking admiringly around
the store, " You have to go to the
(joast to beat that." We have some
knowledge of' stores at the coast
and "elsewhere, and we have no
hesitation in saying that the inter-
fittings 'of Lawson's new store
would hot disgrace thes best of
them. Everything about the place,
counters, shelving, showcases, and
partitions are of the'same genuine
would "be-"difficult to' speak too
highly of the splendid appearance,
workmanlike finish, and wonderful ingenuity and economy of
space displayed in these;fittings.
We confess to a weakness for finely finished woodwork, and here we
have it wholesale. ' ,
. ' Each of of the five departments
has' its own portion of the store,
its appropriate fittings, viz.: .groceries, dry goods, boots and shoes,
haberdashery and clothing,. and
gent's fumihings. -
It is in 'the grocery department
where the ingenuity of the fittings
is mos. apparent. . Behind the
counters is a long row of cleverly
contrived bins, balanced so that
the have to be quite closed or else
wide open. They are moreover
dust and mouse tight Practically
every ivery inch of space is used
for shelves or cases of some kind,
while neat little glass fronted sam-
ple cases run along the front of the
counters and of the bins behind

Another arrangement which will
be appreciated by tired lady shoppers is a row of spring seats, which
fly up .against the counter out of
the way when not in use.
- At the back of the grocery department is the ceishier's desk and
the private offices of the firm.

The large Provincial Exhibition
at New Westminster, which was
opened by Premier McBride last
Tuesday week, will remain in the
memories of the people of Kelowna
for some time to come.
The exhibition which is held
each fall under the auspices of the
Royal Agricultural and Industrial
Society of British Columbia, is
looked upon as the leading fair in
Western Canada, and it is certainly
a high honour for Kelowna to have
come away with such flying colours
from such an important exhibition.
The history of the exhibit that
was sent from Kelowna is generally
well known", but a few words as to
the collection of the fruit may not
be out of place.
Several of the specimens sent,
were obtained through Messrs.
Stirling & Pitcairn, and purchased
by the Agricultural and Trades
Association in the ordihary course,
from the usual class of goods sent
in for shipment. Then again other
specimens were obtained as they
were brought in to the Farmers'
Exchange for shipment.
Previous to the show, Messrs. B.
McDonald and A. E. Boyer paid a
visit to nearly all the orchards,
selecting prize;fruit, taking great
pains to collect the best and unblemished sorts. Very litde of the
exibit was collected from the fall
fair held here some weeks back.
Packing previous to shipment to
New' Westminster, was a pains
taking task, and despite the eareful
handling.at this end.,and packing,
such aa.won praise from everyone
who saw" it, including the'Judges,
who awarded it a special prize for
packing, the fruit suffered quite'a
little in transit at the hands of the
hands of the C. P. R. employees.
Mr. J. SewelF, who, won great
fame as an expert packer at the
Kelowna Fall Fair, was responsible
for the excellent packing for the
New Westminster exhibit, showing
perfect firmness, alignment arid
attractiveness in each box.
Arrangements had been made at
the Landing to have a special, car
for transferring - the fruit to the
Royal City, but this was the only
consideration shown the exhibit by
the railway officials, for the full
express rate of $1.80 per hundred
lbs. was charged,' a special fruit
rate not being considered as applying to the exhibit. This consequently ' made the cost of
transportation heavy in comparison
to what it should have been, and a
class being well competed.

Are you a supporter of Cook
or do . you believe in Peary ?
This is a question of the day.
Newspapers once strong in
party politics have quitted
thinking «vbout them, and are
devoting columns of space to
trying to show by all kinds of
impossible theories that Cook
did or did not reach the pole.
The opponents of Cook will
publish with the air a scientific
treatise an array of crushing
" facts" from which there seems
to be no' escape, only to be
crushed into unrecognizable
nonsense  in  the   next   issue.
Somebody has made a comparison of the charts of the two
explorers. 'When in the same
latitude one party says the
goin was smooth, the other says
it was rough, while in another
another latitude where one
comes across nothing but the
open sea, the other encounters
the hardest of unshiftable ice.
In the meantime all we can
do is to wait patiently for the
proofs which-each declares will
shortly be forthcoming.   -
Owing to' lack of interest
the-Free .Reading Room was
closed to" trie public last Friday.
Not often has such an opportunity been placed before a
town like Kelowna" as that
which was given by Dr. Boyce
last year. when he offered the
use of the room free of cost,
provided that good reading
matter was supplied for the
use of the public, and no fee
charged for admission.
The project was taken up
with much ' enthusiasm at the
start, but gradually dwindled
down until the interest was
practically nil, and the finances
down to zero. ''
-A final effort was made to
arouse public interest by calling a general meeting and
electing, fresh officers. This,
however, failed to produce any
adequate response, and Dr.
. Boyce has now signified his in-
~~tentio-r"to_give_the_use of-the
Rutland News.
The advantages of living in a
fruit-growing district where individual hdldirigs'are limited to ten
or twenty acres were very forcibly

attended the adjourned meeting of
the" l_iterary arid Debating Society
on Friday last. When forty or
fifty people' can meet together
within a radius of not more than
two miles, it speaks volumes for
the possibilities of social intercourse
and neighborly exchange of ideaa.
The Society had a very pleasant
send-off in the form of a social,
held at the home of E..C. Goodrich,
Ellison School District
On Tuseday evening, Oct. 15th,
the Ellison school house was
thrown open to allow a social
gathering to make preparations for
the weekly entertainments to be
held there during the winter. Mr.
Thomas Bulman presided, and in
his kindly and affable manner explained ths purpose of the meeting.
His remarks were followed by a
fine musical solo on the organ, by
Mrs. Stirling, who also played the
accompaniments to the songs
which followed,, and which were
amongst some of the best ever
heard  there.     Mr. Schmab's song
the president, Mr. C. H. Leathlcy, j was  beautifully  rendered   in   his
presiding. After the officers had
been appointed, a musical programme, consisting of songs, recitations, and instrumental selections
was rendered with marked ability,
proving that fruit-growers are not
devoid of taste and culture. At
" half - time," refreshments were
served by Mrs. Goodrich and the
ladies. Some of the "batchers"
(we beg pardon, we mean to say
bachelors) show a great reluctance
clear musical voice "Rocked in
the Cradle of the Deep," sung by
Mr. MacMorland in deep rich
bass voice, enraptured the audience
who were fortunate enough to
obtain another song in the same
strain. Mr. Harry Hall, one of our
favorite singeis, sang "The
Anchor's Weighed," giving delight
to his audience that they begged
for an encore. A comic song by

occasion, and that he would   not  propose
the toast of the Pope  before  that  of  the
King, as was done by Sir John's father in
1893.     The    following    questions   were
consequently asked befor the election was

competent .bandsmen • swill '. furnish
the musical, programmes at the
Second National Apple Show in
;'Spokane, November 15 to 20, also
heading two parades daily during
the week, The largest organization
is the National Apple Show band
of 32 pieces; under the direction
of A. G. Reemer, which scored an
instantaneous hit at the first exposition last November. The Knights
of Pythias band of 20 pieces has
also been engaged. This band has
been heard; on. various occasions,
meeting, with favour at all times.
The National Apple Show band
will" be7stationed in the Armory,
where;a new stand will be erected,
while the Pythians' band will be in
the main exposition hall.
" Probably this is the lagest combined band that has ever been
heard in this part of the Northwest," said Ren H. Rice, secretary-
manager of the show, " and we
expect this will be a big feature
during the week. Professor Reemer
is now at work on a new march,
which will be dedicated to the
National Apple Show, Inc.; while
W. Van Hinkle, of the Pythians
band is arranging for a composition
in honour of King Apple.
" We have also completed our
board of judges by the engagement
of W. J. Green of Wooster, .chief
ofthe department of horticulture
at the Ohio experiment station. He
has been actively engaged for 35
years in promoting the interests of
fruit- culture, and is in hearty
sympathy with the interests of the
apple show.
"The judging department is
headed by Professor H. E. Van
Deman of Washington and the
associate judges ; in addition to
Professor Green are, A. P. Bateham
' of Mosier/Ore., H. M. Duhlap of
' Savoy, 111.; and George J. Kellogg
of Lake Mills Wis.
"The engagement of Professor
" Green will be of particular interest
'< to former residents of Ohio, now
« living in the Inland Empire. He
' has been horticulturist'of the Ohio
' station for 26 years, during which
- time he given special attention to
\ the apple, its culture and exhibition
'at'fairs and expositions.    He has
J also-served  as judge  at   various
- hdrtculttfral-and'pomological meet-
' ings, also at county and state fairs.
He is a member of the American
Pomological Society and an honorary member of several horticultural
associations. ■
"We are pleased with the way
entries are coming in and believe
that the displays will be larger and
more representative than those at
the first show, the reason for this
being that the growers realize the
advantage to be gained from
exhibits, especially prize-winning
ones at the coming exposition. We
shall have entries from practically
every commercial district in the
country, including the valleys in
Washington, Idaho, Montana and
Oregon, also a big showing from
the province of British Columbia
and probably from other points in
Canada. •      ,
" Our correspondence files show
that growers and handlers all over
the country as well as many in
Europe are awake to the fact that
the apple is a staple product, and
that because of the wide-spread
exploitation during the last two
years the markets at home and
abroad are widening rapidly.
They realize, too, that prices for
apples of colour, size and flavour
are advancing and that the consumers are ready and willing to
pay for clean and wholesome fruit,
also that such a thing as over production is entirely out of the

A Bit Thick.
It was on one of the Clyde steamers.
Some of the passengers were relating their
experiences of fogs.
* "Yes," said the old salt, "I've seen some
pretty thick fogs in my time. Why, off the
coast of Newfoundland the fog was sometimes so thick that we used to sit on the
rail and lean against it I We were sitting
one night, as usual, with our backs up
against the fog, when suddenly the fog
lifted, and we all went flop into the
water.   A bit thick, wasn't it ? "

"Doctor." said the caller, "I'm a victim
of insomnia.   Can you cure me ?"
"I can," replied the physician. "But
before I take the case I want to ask you
one question. Are you in business for
yourself or do you work for others?
'•I'm employed as a clerk in a grocery.'
answered the patient.
'Then you'll have to pay in advance,"
said the doctor. I'm not doubting-your
honesty, but after I get through with you
the chances are you'll lose your job. Then
you can't p ay me.

A large bull, which had been landed
from'a river boat at St. John! N"B., made
its escape, and turning on one of tbe dock

then dashed up main street, knocking
down a young girl, goring the child badly

interfere. The workman was next attacked
and severely injured before the infuriated
brute was chased away. After two hours
the bull was caught, tied to a telephone

Danger of the Spread of Weeds'
'.  j     , Aoerted   ,«-,*', \"
It ts ,'noted in the Census and Statistics
Monthly that information was recently received >by the Weed branch of the Dominion Government, that cargo of wheat screenings, were being shipped from Port Ar-
thu'r to Montreal. - On account of the danger in the spread of noxious weeds through
carelessness in handling screenings of this
sort, an officer was sent to Montreal to inquire into the disposition of the cargo.
The analysis of .a sample of the screenings
showed that they contained I..3 of wheat
46.9 weed seeds, and 36,8 inert matter.
.The.weed seeds were represented by 29
different varieties, eleven of which were
of the kind tarried in the Seed Control
Act. It was found that the screenings
were being offered at $19 per ton, and
would be sold either whole or ground into
meal, 3'hq germinating powers however
are riot killed in the grinding. It is evident
that there is considerable danger of intro-
duciti- noxious weeds by caresness in han
dung screenings.   /. , ,      7.

much worried by the uouattendance at

expert marble player in bis boyhood.
Accordingly one Saturday he came
across a number of the young men
engaged-in a game. The good bishop
asked several questions and Anally
challenged the lot to play him for

Washington was. given a dinner-at
Harvey's, at which terrapin formed^

time the Englishman had encountered
the famous Maryland delicacy, and it
made an instantaneous and profound
hit with him- He decided that, he
would introduce the dish to his London

In Clacton the Act has worked   a   great
change, the spectacle on excursion days of
bars filled with children and parents have
entirely disappeared. The following report,
from various towns have been received :
Yarmouth :   The police say the   Act   has
proven very effective, though no prosecut-
ion has been necessary.   Folkstone :   The
Chief Constable is of opinion that the   Act
has proven most beneficial, and ihinks it is
a very wise   provision.   At   Clacton   the
Act has worked far more   smoothly  than
was at first   thought   it   would,   and   its
efficacy has been so great that the  undes-
irable spectacle of   bar-rooms filled   with
parents and their children on a big excursion day is a" thing of the past.   At Worthing
there have been a few.cases of   pecuniary
loss to license-holders through the operation
of the Act, but most have   got   over   the
difficulty of accomodating   both   children
and parents'; whilst at   Hastings the great
majority of parents resort   to   temperance
centres, but where needful publicans have
provided kpecial   accommodation, if   only
it be a few seats outside their  house.   At
Margate, instead   of   being    kept   in   the
public bars until closing time children are
now very often left at the   lodgings in the
care of the landlady.

^-The Neto License'Duties.
The opposition  of the Brewers* Parlia-
mentary Committee to the licensing clauses
of the Finance Bill is not mollified by   the
Government's   amendments, which, it   is
declared, in no   way   affects   their   case.
Arrangements  have   been   made for   an
exhaustive discussion of .the   new   duties
and the suggestion that the whole of   the
licensing clauses can be disposed of in two
days is scouted.   So far as off-licenses are
concerned, however.it is admitted that the
changes made are almost revolutionary in
that the taxation, on this   branch   of   the
trade, especially in Scotland and'  Ireland,
is in  effect   very   greatly   reduced.   The
Irish trade   in particular is   understood to
be well pleased with'the concessions made
inthe   small   businesses.   Many   London
Liberal members are greatly  disappointed
at the retention of the principle of graduation     of     license    duties  according     to
compensation   value^-a   principle   under
which as was pointed   out to   Mr.   Lloyd
George by a deputation, London will   pay

taxation thah it would  haVe done o_v'the

discussion on the matter.   Mr. ,W. Pearce,

J. P., of Manchester, dealt   with  the food
value   of   milk,   and   declared   that   the
consumption of milk should be  increased
among children, and that could   only 'be
done by impressing   on  the   parents   the
value of milk as a food.   There   was   no
doubt that  milk   was ,an  ideal food, for
weakened stomachs and nervous disorders,
and there were   many "cases   where ' the
latter troubles   had   been   cured   by   the
judicious use of   the   lacteal   fluid.   Thi-
chairman proceeded   to   draw a   contrast
between the uses of alcohol and milk, and
said there was an overwhelming evidence
of medical men in favor of the use of - the
latter by those who   suffered-from   what
waa known as "the craving for drink."   If
said the chairman, a man when he   found
it difficult to pass a public-house went on
further and.got a drink of milk,  he would
soon find himself a better man and able to
resist the desire for drink.   The  consum-
ption of drink in hospitals was going do »vn j
the milk requirements were going up; and
in 1905, Guy's Hospital London,  took  in
44,732 gallons of milk.

Kelowna Wins at
Continued from page I
A comparison of Kelowna's score
card with other districts, is of great
interest, more especially when such
well known districts as Nelson,
Chillewack, Salmon Arm and
Spences Bridge are included,
In Jonothans, Kelowna scored
first, second and third prizes,
obtaining the following marks, out
of a maximum of 100.
1st, 98i. 2nd, 97_, 3rd, 96_,
other districts 93, 84, 81. Wealthies
scored, 1st, 97i, 2nd, 96£, 3rd, 96,
while Northern Spys scored 98,
95* and 92.
An interesting score is the one of the
King variety of apple. Kelowna is
supposed to be backward with fruit.
Chillewack is pronounced the home of the
King.   The score is at follows:
Kelowna 99, Kelowna 98, Kelowna 97,
Chillewack 66, Salmon Arm 81, Lilloet 77.
Space prevents us going more fully into
scores which are most interesting, showing
how thoroughly we beat our competitors.
It may appear strange to most people
that Kelowna wins three prizes in nearly
every class, and that one exhibit was
practically put up against its own town.
This can be explained by the fact that
several farmers were showing through the
A. & T. Association, and their separate
names were used in connection with the
exhibit. This accounts for the large
number of second and third prizes.
The attendance at the show was
remarkably good, and the comments
passed by the visitors showed that the
exhibit waa attracting more than usual
In all, the exhibit coraalled $700 and
adding to this the amount realized over
the selling of the fruit, the exhibit showed
a profit of about $1,000 less expenses.
The fruit was practically scheduled to
be shown at Spokane thia year, and we
believe that it would not have been sold, if
another exhibit for Spokane was not in
preparation at the hands of Mr. DeHart. *
The whole exhibit was of Kelowna
fruit, not one sample being takan from
outlying districts.
One of the chief features of the exhibit
was the '15 boxes of Jonothan Apples,
which would possibly have beaten the
world, if the world was showing against
it. '",""• ft.
Both Mr. McDonald and Mr. Boyer
speak in good terms of the way they were
received by the officials, and altso the
accommodation that was afforded them
for their exhibits.
A larger representation was asked for
next year, and a promise made that the
district exhibit which Kelowna won last
year, and which was not included in this
year's premium list should be reinstated
next year. A cup or gold medal, together
with a cash prize was promised, and will
be one of the features of next year's
The tasteful display of the whole exhibit
was commented upon by every visitor, and
the name of Kelowna will live long in the
memories of those who visited one of the
largest shows held in the province, and
noted our numerous awards.

Mr. G. H. Dunn informs us that
our editorial last week has brought
no less than two persons to file
their names on the voters' list. It
is at least pleasing to know that
the glory of these two added
names is extended to us and not to
the large notice- posted on the
light pole (not the electric light
pole) outside the Keller block.
Our reporter was collared last
Tuesday for the road tax, being
informed that it was not considered
etiquette to write a long editorial
on the subject and then not live up
to what is" written. The beaming
face of the city clerk as he scooped
in the shekels was a thing to be
noted and remembered. He was
just about to collect the dog tax as
well when our reporter " scooted."
The council meeting is consequently cut rather short this week.
F. DeCacquery returned last
Sunday from a hunting trip around
White Mountain in company with
Leon Gillard. The chjef object of
the expedition was to look for
black and grizzly bear, but none
were seen by daylight. One night,
however,' a noise was heard dangerously near the camp, making
the campers get up and fire a few
shots to scare the animal away.

Kelowna, B.C.
Mr. John Fife representing the
Prudential Life Insuarnce Co., was
in town this week. In his official
capacity he travels through all the
large towns in the Dominion and
knew Kelowna when the old
Lequime Store was the only one in
the district. He made1 a few
remarks to us the other day generally praising up the rapid progress
of the town. Lawson's new store
attracted his attention and he
considered it the best fitted store
in the interior of the province.

buy or just to look.

the final inspection of the plant could be
made next week.
Mr. Aviss attended and asked if the
council could find it convenient to pay a
visit to the foreshore by his. premises so
that some arrangement could be made for
the completion of his proposed lease. It
was decided to pay a visit to ihe point in
question at 9 o'clock on the following
morning, to make final arrangements with
Mr. Aviss.
A discussion ensued as to whether the
council should pay in full, the account of
the Vancouver Engineering Works, as the
shaft which had been sent them 'to
straighten had not come back true. It was
suggested that the bill should be paid, as
the firm in question did not guarantee to
straighten the shaft, but taking into account
the fact that Inspector Peck had mentioned
that the work was not done satisfactory, it
was agreed to write them with te idea of
adjusting the matter.
The city clerk stated that there was an
over draft in the bank, and asked for the
authority to borrow money to meet it. It
was agreed upon motion that the mayor
and city clerk should have power to
negotiate a loan of $2,500 for Local
Improvement purposes.
Mention was also made of the various
sidewalks in course of construction, the
mayor asking when they would be finished.
It was agreed to urge the matter on as
quickly as possible, so as to strike the
total amount of debenteres required to be
issued for Local Improvement purposes.
It was also decided that Mr. C. G.
Clement should be seen with reference to
the defective sidewalk on the North side
of Bernard Avenue, and to request that
same should be put in repair at an early
Aid. Cox wished to know if any steps
were being taken to collect the dog taxes
over the city.
The city clerk said that some difficulty
had been experienced in, getting the tags
from the coast. The matter, however was
receiving almost immediate attention from
the Chief of the Police.
The council then adjourned, to meet
again on Tuesday, October 26th, at
7.30 p.m.
