Water and Light Plant Expenditures To Receive Attention-
Aid. Cox Resigns As Building Inspector.     -:
The usual meeting of the City
Council was on Monday last, a full
fc attendance of aldermen being
|k •* present. After the minutes of the
previous meeting had been read
and adopted, correspondence from,
the following firms was referred to
the various committees:
Dept. of Public works, re dredge,
referred to the Board of Works.-
Polman & Mooy, re their act.,
referred to Park committee.
The following accounts were
then referred to the finance committee, to be paid if found correct :
' Salaries, Power House $433 00
D. Mills, Scavenger... ..   125 00
Rent, City Clerk, Police salaries.... 202 25

Mayor Sutherland Hdught up the
question of park commissioners outside those already appointed
on the council. He explained that
there was no need to. go into the
appointment again and declared
Messrs. P. B. Willits, Geo. Rose and
J. Harvey elected again.
Aid. Stirling reported upon two
letters referred to the finance committee last veek. The former from
Mrs.*  Geo.   Sutherland,; he stated
"had not yet received the final con>
sideration of the committee, but
' one from Mr. vC. A. Fiajier had
been :dealt> with and" the*jresult
was thatthe committee recommend-,
ed any'risk there was iii Connection
;  with    'he    power    house    being
1  cohered/ 7 ' y
Aid;. Leckie then presented the
following motion to the council:
Leckie - Harvey—-That all city
employees engaged in connection
with the water and light service be
notified that their present engage
ment with the city "will terminate
one month' hence, on February.
28 next, but that they may be reengaged before that date.;
..•:'.-.Aid..Leckie said that the committee had been looking into, the
' fire /and -water salareis, and had
found that during the past year the
. list had gone up" from $250 to
$430. The amount now paid
equalled about 60 per cent, of the
revenue of the plant. Before any
actibn was taken he hadtnterview-
ed Mr. Russell who stated that it
was impossible to reduce the force.
In comparison with last year there
was an increase of two men on the
staff. Last year Mr. Russell asked
that some of the salaries should be
raised—then-there were- two men,
now there are four, and the salaries
remained the same. Taking the
revenue and expenditure into account, the present system put the
revenue at $7,600 and the expenditure,'on the basis of this month,
at over $5,000 per annum. In Ver
non the salaries bore a proportion
of 20 per cent, of the revenue—
here, the salaries bore a proportion
of 60 per cent, of revenue. He
considered the motion did not
show that any dissatisfaction was
expressed. Put to vote, the motion
was carried.
Aid. Cox suggested that the
matter of a building inspector
should be taken up, as he did not
wish to stand again in that capacity.
He suggested that someone outside
the council should act. The following motion was carried :   ;
Leckie-Jones—That the mayor
appoint a committee to look into
the matter of the appointment of a
Building inspector, and report.
7 he mayor appointed Aid. Jones,
Cox and Harvey-to act on the
committee, also to report on the
advisability of taking in a larger
territory within the building limits.
. Mr. * Parkinson attended with a
plan of the forshore duly prepared
and explined that the delay was
caused owing to the original plans
having contained a part of the
foreshore already obtained by the
C. P.'R.—two different parts had to
be madt* out.
Some little discussion arose as to
the agreement made between Mr.,
Aviss and the old council, but Aid.
Stirling suggested that as the city's
leasewas conditional upon a lease
being granted Mr. Aviss, it was
simply a question of ratifying what
the old council had done.'
Aid. Leckie considered that the
lease should contain some clause
stipulating that the piece of foreshore so obtained should only hold
good if the owner should continue
in the same trade for which the
lease was granted.
Mayor Sutherland was of the
opinion that the council could only
obtain their lease if an arrangement
was made to satisfy Mr. Aviss. He
considered it better to see Mr.
Aviss, and to leave the matter over.
The matter was consequently
Motions were then put that bylaw No. 70 should be read a
second and. third lime. This bylaw being one for fixing a rate for
scavenging work.
Aid. Stirling — " Does the city
collect the, dues ? "
Mayor Sutherland—"No, the
scavenger does his own collecting."
, Aid. Cox ask what steps should
be taken to compel a man to
comply with the scavenging bylaw.
The mayor read the' penalty
.which was supposed to be inflicted
upon any person who infringed or
,neglected any by-law. The penalty
is ilOO,.^. .., . :._,,.(...,.. ,..,,^.7AA.-*-;
—Police Hidson* (who evidentlj**
knew of the case referred to),- ^aid
he.had advised the ^party that
action would be taken if the %g.
law was not complied with within
lOdays. He also pointed out-to
the council that*Mr. Burne's position
eta Police Magistrate expired on
the morrow, and that it was essential
that another'magistrate should be
appointed without delay.
Mayor Sutherland said the matter
had been taken up and two applications had been received. It
wasi however, imperative that one
of the applicants should be seen
before a definite decision was arrived at.
. The council then adjourned, to
meet on Saturday next, February
6th at 8 p.m.
Fire in Chinatown.
Chinatown had ■ a* very narrow

.feeling the cold snap, and had perhaps been firing up a little too
often. .   •
About half-past four in the afternoon an alarm of fire was given
and caught up from mouth to
mouth. The roof of Kwong Lee
Yuen's house was found to be
ablaze, arid great volumes of smoke
were rolling out.
Fortunately there was no lack of
"Chinese labor," and with barefooted Chinks as thick as bees, the
flames were soon out. Kwong L*e
Yuen could be seen -sitting astride
the ridge of his roof shouting forth
his mandates, and pouring water
down the , chimney pipe. The
water was handed up from the
strings of helpers who had ranged
themselves from the nearest wells.
In less than half an hour from
the first alarm all was as quiet as if
nothing had.happened, though the
whole of Chinatown had been
threatened. Kwong still laments
the loss of the few shingles on his
root. -
Rev. D. J. Welsh will speak "on
the following themes next Sunday:
morning, " A. Successful Partnership "; evening, "The Prophet
Jeremiah and his Religion."
The staff at the power house
have all been reengaged with 'the
exception of one who has not yet
been seen on the matter.
Last Monday evening- Raymer's
small hall was the scene of a very
interesting ceremony, when James
W. Wilks was presented by the
brethern of the Canadian Order of
Foresters with a jewelled badge in
memory of the four years during
which timehe has been financial
secretary pi the prefer in town.
Previous to the presentation a
musical; programme was started,
which included songs by Claude
James, Bert Hair, F. Woolridge, E.
Wilkinson and Mr. Morgan; Highland Fling by J. Murray* recitation
by H. Standing, and a mouth,organ
selection by R. Campbell.
At about 9 o'clock the presentation was made to Mr. Wilks. by
Mr. Burne, who is a past chief
ranger of the order. In the course
of his opening remarks he complin
mented Mr. Wilks upon having
put the lodge in such a good shape
during his term of office as financial
secretary. In closing he drew attention to the regret felt b}' the
various members that Mr. Wilks
had been forced to sever* his
position in the society owing to his
having made arrangements to go j
to New Zealand. He, however,
wished him God-speed and good
luck in the new. home he was
about to adopt. —., '
The presentation took the shape
of'a gold star, neatly engraved with
the emblem and the letters CO-OF*.
surmounted-by a gold buckle upon
which was'shown the emblems of
a key and a quill pen   neatly attached by a red, white and'blue
ribbon.   After the presentation Mr. ^_TOC
Wilks tried to express his thanks fcjtUi yfc
the members of the order, but waa
overcome with  emotion   and  sat
down amid  cheers  frbrh; the assembly.   This testified to the good
will and fellowship with, which he
was regarded.   A few more, songs
being "sung,    refreshments   were
served, when all joined inthe singing of   "For He's  a Jolly good
Fellow " and the national anthem,  i
It is Mr. Wilks's intention to leave
for the Old Country on the Empress
bf3ritain, which sails on the  11 th
ofMarch next, and to allow for a
short stay oyer at the various points
in which he has old associates, will
mean  that he  will leave here by
the 3rd of March. Mr. Wilks came
to Canada some seven years ago,
and during this time has followed
various occupations.
. Arriving in May. 1903 he went
direct to Winnipeg, where he
stayed only one day.'. He then proceeded to Regina, where he arrived
on the 8th of May, the day-of the
horse show. Naturally he took in
the show, and before seven o'clock
in the evening he had made arrangements: with Fred, Lang, an
Old Countryman, who owned a
farm at Grand Coulie, to work upon his place.. At this work he
kept, earning $40 a month, and
many and various were thfc jobs
he had to do. At one time he
plowed 64 acres and then backset
and harrowed the land four times.
He also served as took for two
threshing gangs during his sojourn
on the farm.
After six months he lefVthe farm
tp take stock for Mr. F. R. E. De-
Bert, who owned an implement
store, and which had been purchased by Messrs. Maxwell &
Ferguson of Indian Head. Stock
taking being completed he remain
ed with the firm for four months as
general clerk.
During this time he acieved some
fame as a musician, and there were
•yery few dances passed which did
liot have Mr. Wilks at the piano.
Mr. Wilks was tnen 44 years old.
Seeing that his music was appreciated, he decided to leave Grand
Coulie and go to Regina with the
idea of making music his profession.
Once in Regina he obtained a
position as salesman for Mr. F. de
S. Henwood and soon got together
a connection, having no less than
eighteen pupils in Regina and six
at Pense, a small town within half
an hour's, run of Regina.
During one of his trips between
Regina and Pense he managed to
get into difficulties, and gift thoroughly wet through.   This brought
on an attack of Double Pneumonia
and Pleurisy, (which cost him adout
$ 110 to get over). Struggle as he
did he could not get well again,
and the doctor ordered him to
in May. 1904 he wrote to Mr. DeHart
who was stationed here, and got the reply
" Come at once, I have a light job for you."
He immediately came, arriving here on the
23rd of May, and was given the job of
planting out Mr. DeHart's flower garden.
Soon after his arrival h^ joined the Kelowna Amateur Orchestra, which was in.
existence at that that time, and of which he
was given the post of pianist. Soon after
thia the Orchestra broke up, and Mr. Wilks
formed a company of his own under the
name of the Kelowna Quadrille Band. This
band consisted of Messrs. J., J. Stubbs, Dan
Gallagher and :J. W. Wilks, Thi, band did
good work, being engaged by nearly- all
the-valley towns to play at their dances.
Music did not occupy all his time, however, for at the start he occupied the position of clerk to Mr. D. W. Sutherland when
the latter was secretary of the Okanagan
Fruit and Lands Co. He, (Mr. WilkA, was
afterwards Secretary of the A. ot T\, and
for two years joint auditor pi the Farmers'
He, in company with Mr. George Packer,
practically started* the series  of  successful
regattas we have been having since 1907.
He  started   the rifle association in 1907,
and was secretary of the Quoit club.
At preseent he holds the position of
secretary of the Farmers' Institute, and was
the secretary and organizer of the sports
held on the 24th of May last. He took up
his present office about three years
and during that time has kept
for many of the townspeople. '
He also took over the library which was
established by the townspeople.        ■■'■ '
Hs has played at numberless concerts in
the town, and altogether he bos been the
organizer and provider of many a good
evening's entertainment.
- At one time he was an ardent billiard
player, and- has always been one of the
great authorities on fishing, which he. has
.made his chief hobby.
»  liveryman and freeman of the
.City of London, England.-, _'v
His genial personality is too well known
to-.-need comment, and it is with genuine
regret that his many friends will say goodbye to him. • - --. ■' "■-
He is always ready for a joke even'at
his own expense. Only the other day. one
of our medical men called in to see. bim.
"And  so  you  are  going  to leave us,
Jim," he said.
"-Well, you haven't troubled the doctors
much since you've been here.''
"No, I haven't had one day.s illness all
the tirne." ".
"Well, what age you leaving us for?"

Matters effecting the fruit industry
wire thoroughly discussed in yic-
Jtbria last week at a meeting of the
provincial board of horticulture. A

ing was a wide discussion given to

orchards and it was recommended
that such orchards be organized in
different sections: throughout the
mainland and  Vancouver  island.
Publications of fruit culture issued
by the department  of agriculture
were submitted  for revision and

During the past year Mr. J. C.
Metcalf carried out excellent work
which was of immeasurable benefit
to the industry. He watched the
market of the northwest, inspected
British Columbia fruit therein, and
reported the result of his tours to
the board with recommendations
as to betterment of conditions regarding shipping and marketing.
It was decided to try and obtain*
Mir. Metcalfe's services again this
Consideration was given several
proposed amendments to the Horticultural Board act, and regulations
and rules for submission to the
legislature. Sickness kept Mr. T.
Cunningham, inspector of fruit
pests of Vancouver away from the
meeting which fact caused disappointment because it was impossible to give fruit pests as full
discussion as it would have been
were the inspector present. Those
present were Messrs. W. Crawley
Ricardo, J. C. Metcalf* and William E. Scott, deputy minister of
agriculture and secretary of the)
board. Capt. P. Ellison was appointed to the board from the
district of Vancouver island.-Proo.
Last Saturday a session of unusual interest was held at the
Court House, some thirty-five
Chinamen being present. Six of
these were charged with gambling,
while one by the name of Lee was
1jSb..K!fharged  -ith  keeping  a gaming
J— - house  and   opium joint.   As the
defendant Lee could not speak
English, Lee Chung, who was present, was asked to act as interpreter,
but he refused, so Wong Yung was
Asked   by  the  interpreter if he
wished  the  case   tried   here, Lee
J_ replied  that  he was   Willing   for
Magistrate Burne to try the case.
Chief Hidson then gave evidence.
He *had kept a shack in Eli ave.
under close observation for some
time, he said, and was confident
that defendant was permitting
j gambling and opium smoking on
the premises. There were three
rooms, one in front of the house
used as a general room, a kitchen
at the back, and between the two
a small room about 7 feet square.
This room contained two board
couches and a table.
On the night of the 27th, continued the chief, at about 4 a.m.,
he raided the premises, and found
the men charged in occupation.
Gambling Was going on, and a
sum of money in silver was found
upon the table.- At the same time
he found upon the table-in the
small room numerous utensils used
in^Q.mum smoking. ^Tliheae. cpn-
*isted of a long tamboo pipe with
two'hbwls, ?i handkerchief gpntain-
[4ng numerous balls, of opium!- three
horn cases containing the_prepared
mixture, and a small spirit lamp for
boiling up the preparation. Belonging to the lamp were two steel
rods,' and by the side was an open
tin, which, the chief explained, was
for the ashes. After the smoke
had been completed; the ashes
were collected. These were subsequently made into pills and
swallowed. -
Chief Hidson men called as a
witness Nuin, a Chinaman. This
man, who was extremely nervous,
caused some little amusement on
being asked if he was a Christian
by replying that he was "just a
little Christian." After being sworn
in he admitted that he had been in
the house, but said that games
were only played there for fun
The house, he said belonged to Ar
Chee. Asked where Chief Hidson
had secured the money, he replied
that he had taken it out of the
Chinamen's pockets. The witness
was then dismissed having thrown
very little light on the matter.
Mr. R. B. Kerr appealed for the
defendants. He said that in the
first place the prosecution did not
show that the defendant Lee was
the owner of the house or that he
was in receipt of money from anyone for keeping a gaming house.
Neither was the finding of opium
smoking utensils sufficient evidence
to prosecute on, as it did not prove
that opium smoking was permitted
on the premises. ,-
Chief Hidson said that when he
entered the shack the srrieH of the
opium smoke was very noticeable.
Directly on his entrance there was
a scuffle, and everything was left.
Being single handed he lost several
of the Chinamen who were in at
the time, some getting out by the
back door and windows. The fact
that the smell of opium was there
he considered sufficient to convict,
and the finding of the varifras
utensils produced in court was a
double piece of evidence.
Mr. Kerr, however, objected to
the case being proceeded with, as
there was no evidence to show that
Lee was the proprietor of the disorderly house.
Chief Hidson pressed for the
case to go on as Lee himself had
admitted to him that he was the
proprietor of the house, and he had
had the same information   from
other frequenters of the place.
Mr. Burne ruled . that the case
of gambling or keeping a gaming
house must be dismissed, but that
Lee should be tried on the charge
of keeping an opium joint
Mr. Kerr asked that the court
should be* dismissed for a few minutes in order that he could confer
with his client.
This was granted and after, about
a quarter of an hour the court resumed its sitting.
Mr. Kerr called the defendant.
In reply to numerous questions,
Lee said he was the proprietor of
the place which was a restaurant.
That people would come into his
place for a meal and stay very late.
The three tubes of opium produced
belonged to one of his customers.
Sing Chee, and the opium pellets
to Chung. The pipe, lamp, and
various other things in connection
therewith Were his own.
Asked by the magistrate if he
still smoked opium, he said he had
given it up about a month ago.
No one smoked opium in his house.
The opium produced was taken
out of the owner's pockets by the
Asked why the little lamp was^-'
burning when the contable arrived,
he said the lamp was often lit when
the place was dark to give light
Asked if white men were ever
admitted into the premises, he said
they, were not.
It was pointed out that the pipe
bowl and the two rods were wet
and reeking with recent smoking,
andj4-e§£was asked why they were
so •aampnf th£y had not been used
for a month. There .Was no answer. : yyy
Sing Chee was called and asked
if the tubes of opiuriri belonged to
him..   He  replied  that they   did.
He had seen no one smoking on
the  premise? in question.:   When
he smoked it was in his own house.
Mr. Kerr then said that although
he was  in favor of stamping out
the   smoking   of Opium, he was
bound  to'point out' thai the evi- .
den»e in this case was. not-sufficient
to  convict the  party in question.
According to law it was not suffi<>
ient for the  charge to state that
opium    smoking   was   permitted
uppn one day in certain premises.
It  must  be   proven   tbat   opium
smoking was a habitual practice on
the premises.   The evidence only
showed that Mr. Hidson had smelt
opium when he entered-the house,
and. he had not stated that he had
seen anyone smoking opium.   The
evidence of two Chinese witnesses
and of the defendant showed that
no_ smoking had gone' on te their
knowledge, so that three persons
against one asserted that no smok- '
ing hadfbeen permitted.   He considered that in raids of this kind
the city should furnish the chief of
police with sufficient men to make
the raid and the evidence complete.
The evidence of one man in such
cases, even though backed up by
the production of the various implements used in opium smoking,
was not sufficient to convict.   He
therefore    asked   the   magistrate
under the circumstances to dismiss
the case, as the evidence was not
such as could legally convict the
Magistrate Bujpe agreed that the
prosecution was not strong, and
accordingly decreed that the case
should be dismissed, but that the
various appliances and materials
produced in court should be confiscated.
Lee was afterwards approached ■
by- Chief Hidson for payment of   t
his trade license, as he had stated .._
ih his evidence that he' Was   a    ■
restaurant keeper.   Several other
Chinamen present had to pay their
road taxes.

The two runaway accidents
which are reported in our issue
this week recall to mind once
more the dangerous practice of
putting barbed wire fencing
along a public highway. With
the advent of the automobile
upon the country roads this
danger is increased immensely,
and it can only be from a lack
of consideration for the safety
of the travelling public that the
practice is allowed to continue
at all!
Of course anyone sustaining
injury or loss through coming
in contact with the wire has a
remedy in the law against the
man putting or allowing it to
be put there, but that is adding
the worries of the law court to
the troubles of the person already injured.
The wire and and the practice of putting it up—has one
recommendation—it is cheap
and effective. However this
may excuse its use in other
places, it is certainly far too
dangerous a material to employ
along a public road, where
traffic is continually passing.
Longer the practice is allowed to .continue and the more
difficult will be the doing away
with it. Why not' have it removed at once for god9 and
ting itself severely on the shoulder.
The occupants of the rig, Mr. and
Mrs. Bond were thrown out, being
severely bruised and shaken up.
Medical aid was promptly at hand
and it was found that Mr. Bond
had sprained his arm and his leg.
Mrs. Bond escaped with a few
bruises and tears to her clothing.
They were taken home in the
offending horse scarer. Latest reports show that both are getting
along in first-class manner, and will
soon be little worse for their accident.
That the Rutlanders are the
owners of good horses, is a well
known fact; but that some of these
horses are cross country steeple
chasers is not generally known.
Unfortunately Billy Mack wasn't
aware of the powers of his mare
when she got unhitched at the store
last Saturday and made a 2:40 gait
for home—-he didn't anticipate she
was going to cross fences to get
there. The democrat being one of
the self-righting kind, she managed
to keep to the road till she reached
Mr. Maxwell's fence, when perceiving that her progress towards
home was made impassable by a
man with a plank, she remembered
her old racing days and jumped
the fence,, the democrat proving
no hinderance whatever, and after
careering around the lot she came
to anchor between the fence and
barn. Casualties: numerous cut?,
splinters, small trees up-rooted and
a badly damaged democrat for
sale cheap.
We are sorry to learn that Mr.
Monford's little boy is very seriously ill with pneumonia.

A Puzzling Problem For the Racial in-
The chief of the naturalization bureau at Washington is of tbe opinion
that the "average mini in the. street"
understands distinctly what a "white"
man Is. Apparently some persons can
master a subject without studying It
at all, while otbejs who have looked
into it deeply are not so dogmatically
certain as the "average man In the
street"       ■■>
For example, the encyclopedias tell
as that mankind was divided by Blu-
menbacb Into Hve raees-uamely, Caucasian, Mongolian, Ethiopian, American (Indian* and Malay. Tbe words
"Caucasian" and "wbite" are nsed
synonymously. This classification was
first published in 1781 and must have
been known to our national legislators
when in 1802 they passed the first
naturalization law.
The Caucasian race Includes Arabs,
who are certainly no "whiter" than
the Turks, yet Turks, the official says,
cannot be naturalized because tbey are
not "white."
We are also told by tbe naturalization bureau that the Hindoo is not
"white" withiu the meaning of the
statute. B_t the encyclopedia says that
it is'a great error to separate the Hindoo from the Cnwiisiun race. The
Hindoo, it thinks, Ih much nearer the
"white" race than tlip Arab.
To puzzle the racial Investigator still
further, while everything is so clear
to the "average man In the street,"
we are told by :he encyclopedias tbat
the original Caucasians -that is. the
Inhabitants ot the Caucasus-are no
longer regarded h« Caucasians. Tbey
have been thrown out ot the "white"
camp and forced to go over to the

Fire crept dangerously near the
Anglican church yesterday afternoon and the flames which were
cralling along the dry grass around
the church might easily have been
the means of destroying the building. Mr Millie who saw the flames
from his office, immediately rushed,
accross to stop the further progress
of the fire and by means of a damp
sack managed to beat out the
(lame. The atettt was evidently due'
to someone throwing a cigarette or
cigar stub through the railings and
setting fire to the dry grass.

Fifty-three officers and men were rescued from the British torpedo boat

moorings during a gale in the channel last
Thursday night, driying ashore off Dover.
When the tide receded the destroyer was
left high and dry and badly damaged.
Her guns, heavy gear, and coal .were re.
moved in the hope that she could be
floated at the next high tide. Unless this
is possible the destroyer will be pounded
to pieces. One of the small boats of .the

occupants were rescued.

How It Is Formed and Its Grewtoir.
To most persons the word "qnltli-
sand" gives a seusntiuii of borror similar to that produced by the thought
of a snake, and tunny sensational accounts have give, to quk'_su__ utmost human attributes. No ordinary
observer would be able to distinguish
dry quicksand from any other sand,
and tbe average person would be unable to restore it to its ".julc'ic" properties even If be tried. If water ia
mixed wltb tbe quicksand tbe mass
does not become nn>uin>. and if tbe
water Is drained off tlie «and will be
found firmly packed.
Quicksand Ih comparatively very
light, weighing about ninety-four
pounds to tbe cubic toot, wbile other
forms of sand run as Uipl. as 171
pounds. Quicksand wben examined
under the microscope will be found to
have rounded corners, like river sand,
as distinguished from "sharp" sand.
It Is quicksand that is used In hourglasses and egg glasses, partly because
of Its fineness and partly because It
does uot eventually cloud tbe glass by
scratching, as would ibe sharp sand.
It is to Its lightness that quicksand
owes Its deadly mutinies, and a demonstration of bow It becomes "quick"
may be glren by placing a quantity
in a backet and adding water by pressure tbrougb a bole In the bottom, allowing tbe water to overflow very
slowly when it bus worked up through
the sand. Tbe upward current will be
found to loosen the sand and to raise
tbe surface very slightly, separating
and lubricating the particles so tbat
they are easily displaced.
The bucket how .'contains genuine
quicksand. Tbe sand, owing to tbe
support it receives from the water,
has Its weight, or supporting power,

is nearly twice the weight of a man.
but Is too mobile to give support and
too thick to swim In In its natural
state, presenting an apparently firm
surface, resembling simply damp sand.
It Is tbe most deadly man trap conceivable.
Quicksand requires In all cases an
upward current whli h Is not quick or
strong enough to break through In
the form of a spring, ordinarily water flowing over quicksand will not
make it dangerous. It may be formed
In tidal, rivers and on the shores of
tidal seas by the rising tide saturating,
a porous stratum of ground bPlow high
water mark, and when the tide full., a
return current Is established through
the porous tsandyt ground with a "tiffl-
clent velocity to loosen the sand nnd
make It "quick."

. Shall I Drink ?
From " A Young*Man's Questions," by
Robt. E. Speers.
Practically every young man is solicited
at some time or other to drink wine or
beer or some stronger drink. What shall
his attitude be on this question? Ought
he to be a teetotaler, or should he take
what he will be told is a moderate view,
and drink a little for the sake of sociability
and good fellowship ? If the question is
put in the extreme form : " Shall I become
a drunkard, or be a temperate man, even
to the extent of abstinence ? " every young
man will choose abstinence. But many
hold' that a middle course is much more
manly: that to decline to drink for fear of
becomine a drunkard or losing control of
one's appetite is an evidence of weakness
or cowardice. Some men allege that to
refrain from touching drink because its
abuse is evil is no more necessary nor admirable than to refrain from using language
because it is often put to evil service, or
fire, because it is dangerous, or any food
which can be over-used with harmful
One principle may bi clearly set forth at
the outset, namely, that it is within any
man's right to refrain from the use of all
intoxicating drinks. It is no man's duty to
use it as a beverage. Every man is within
his Christian liberty in refusing to touch it.
If any man moves in society that curtails
this liberty or denies it, his suspicion ought
to be aroused, for the next step will be the
abridgement of other liberties as well.
But I am going further than this. It is
not only a man's right to let liquor alone,
it is his duty. He owes it to society and
to himself as a worker. He cannot do his
best work except as a sober, clear-minded,
steady-nerved man. The railroads will
not employ men who are not sober, and
are coming more and more to prefer total
abstainers. Even bar-tenders are often
required to let drink alone. The idea that
it brightens the intellect and sharpens the
faculties is purely fallacious. This defence
comes as a rule from men upon whom the
habit has fastened itself, and who seek a
justification of it, and who obviously disprove their own contention. " I have never
used liquor," Mr. John G. Johnson, the
leading lawyer of Philadelphia, waa recently reported to have said, " because I don't
like it. But I know men who have used it,
and I don't think it ever brightened thtir
Not only does drinking not brighten the
intellect and increase its working power,
but it breaks down the integrity of nature
and the vitality of the men who drink.
" Alcohol is injurious," Dr. J. Solis-Cohen,
of Philadelphia, is reported by the same
paper which quoted Mr. Johnson's statement to have said. "A man may drink to
deaden his sorrow, but the pendulum will
always swing as far one way as it does the
other. If he finds joy or happiness in intoxication he will pay for it by consequential misery when he gets sober. It might
stimulate the minds of some men temporarily, but it will soon kill their intellects
and shorten their lives. Physicians agree
that it ii a bad thing. All stimulants are
injurious. A few years ago we stopped
the use of liquor in the House of Consumptives. Since that time there has been
a marked decrease in the number of
hemorrages. It is bad in every way."
To be continued.
Ellison School District.
(From our own correspondent.)
A concert is being arranged for
the 8th inst., in aid of a new public
hall for the district. It will be held
in the school house, and a good
time is promised. Gentlemen will
pay 50c, ladies, 25c, and children,
A public meeting of the residents
of this district was held in the
school house Tuesday evening to
discuss ways and means of erecting
a public hall. The' school house
is now being taxed to its utmost
capacity, being used for -school
work, religious services, choir
practice, and entertainments, and
is moreover far too small to accommodate any large gathering such
as we wish to see in our midst.
Mr. M. Hereron acted as chairman
and Mr. Guest was elected secretary of the meeting. Mr. Bulman
generously offered to donate a site
for the building. Mr. Hereron
offered to give 1,500 feet of lumber, and Mr. Carney the same
amount, while Mr. Conroy would
give 1,000 feet of dressed lumber.
It was thought that the proceeds of
the concert would cover the cost of
nails and windows." The name of
the hall was then discussed. Mr.
Conroy thought it unnecessary to
worry about a. name until the
building was under way. Mr.
Guest proposed that the name of
" Hermit Hall " should be given to
it, and was seconded, but Mr. Hereron and Mr. Bulman suggested
the name of " Ellison," which was
put to the vote and immediately
carried. So the new hall, which
we hope is the beginning of a new
townsite, .will be called the Ellison
Hall. A committee was then
elected to_ look after the business,
consisting of Mr. Bulman, Mr. Carney, and Mrs. Hay.

The Herring Fisheries Proved an Important Factor In the Overthrow and

A tale as stirring na any Action could*
be based on the part playpd by tL-> sea
herring In the history ot some ot *he
principal countries, writes Hugh M.
Smith In the National (icographlc Magazine. Its spawning utid feeding
grounds have determined tbe location
of cities, and in several Instances the
actual destiny of nations and tbe fate
of mouarcbs appear to have been involved In the herring fishery. Even
today the herring is a factor In empire. $
Countries In which the quest of the
herring is an important Industry are
the Duited States, the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick. Nova Scotia.
Quebec and British Columbia. Newfoundland. England. Scrtland, Wales
and Ireland. Norway. Sweden and
Denmark, Hussia. Uerman.v. Holland,
Belgium, France, Japan and Siberia.

No Scrip Extension. '
A contempory recently published a
statement to the effect that the time for
locating South: African veteran's warrants
had been extended for two years, giving
the veterans, or those to whojn they have
sold their scrip, until December 31st, 1912,
to select their land. The statement, how.
ever, has no foundation in fact. The enquiries of a Free Press, correspondent al
Ottawa elicitited the fact that the time for
locating has not been extended and is not
likely to be. The time expires on December 21st next.
Fernie'8 City Council.
The Fernie board of trade have succeeded in inducing Mayor Herchmer and four

lack of candidates.
-Blind Pig Near Nanaimo.
At the provincial police court, Nanaimo,
Mrs. Rogers, a resident was fined $450
and costs for selling liquor without a
license. On her last appearance, only a
few weeks ago, she was fined $250 and
costs, but thia fine, large as it was, did not
deter her from still carrying on a " blind
pig." The provincial police, under the instruction of Chief Stephenson, kept the
premises under strict surveillance,' and
there was hot much trouble in getting evi.
dence for another conviction. Chief Step--
conducted the case for the prosecution,
alleging that "the place as: carried on by
Mrs. Lawrence was ruining the youth of
the district. He had received "complaints
from parents who asserted that what in
reality were beer bills figured as candy
accounts.,. Mrs. Rodgers paid the fine and
was informed by the magistrate that if she
was again convicted the fine would be
$1000, or in default, two years in jail.
Earl Grey's Successor.
It is stated thatthe Earl of Orrington

As the result of representations to the

Frozen Oranges.
Wholesale fruit merchant* are being advised that the low-lying districts of Southern 'California have suffered considerably
from heavy frosts recently which will
greatly affect the orange crop. They have
also been warned against the shipment by
unscrupulous merchants of frosted oranges."]
These agents are said to be making haste
with their work so that the goods may be
accepted bv the dealers before the damage
is shown. Discussing the matter, R. Rf
Scott said to a Free Press representative
concerning frozen oranges, " At first you
cannot recognize by the color whether the
orange has been frozen or not, and it is
almost impossible to detect it except
in the flavor. In the course of a few
weeks, however, any person can at once
recognize a frozen orange without cutting
it open, by its weight, as the frost has the
effect of drying up the orange and the
juice disappears."

Saloon keepers at Indianapolis who

Cannerymen Rah for Reduction of
With a request for a reduction in the
taxation of canneries a deputation os Vancouver and Victoria salmon cannerymen
wuited on commissioner of fisheries Bowser. It was asked that the license tax of
$100 on salmon canneries be reduced to
$50, that where salteries are operated in
canneries already taxed as such that there
should be no extra tax because of the
saltery operations, and in the case of separate saltery buildings it was urged that
the tax should be but $50. The deputation
also requested that the present assessment
of $10,000 upon canneries carrying a single
line of machinery, $15,000 on two-line
canneries, and $30,000 on four-line plants
should be abolished, and that no taxation
in that respect should be collected, it being
urged that the tax of two cents per case on
the output of the canneries was as much
as the industy could bear.

Sunday Closing of Post Offices.
The Lord's Day alliance will have no
support from the New Westminster board

that a large majority has declared against
any act of parliament being introduced
which will cause the closing up of the

note that at a recent meeting of the city
council the vote was almos unanimously
the other way. . .

To Our Patrons and
the General
We are adopting The McCASKEY
our accounts. This system has
been in successful operation for a
number of years among the"*; leading merchants of the country, who
are unanimous in their endorsement of it. With this system we
are enabled to give you an itemized
bill with each purchase, which, you
will readily see, prevents the possibility of any difference between
you and us, as to the condition of
your account with us, for we have
no record of. which you have not
an exact copy* because all^charges
will be made in duplicate.
In order to secure your hearty
co-operation we furnish you with
a sales-slip holder to hold our
sales-slips, and wish to assure you
that the appearance on each sales-
slip of your total indebtedness to
us has no personal application to
you or to any other customer, but
is merely a part of the successful
operation of the system.
Under this system the need for
sending out monthly statements is
avoided, the last purchase slip
issued in the month showing your
total indebtedness to us. This
amount is due and payable to us
on -the first day of the following
month. It is therefore necessary
that you get a slip with each purchase.
We will gladly detail the working of the system | to you if you_
should like it further explained. It
is a system that will appeal to anyone, as by it mistakes are made
We thank you for past favors,
and hope by careful attention to
your wants to merit a continuance
of your trade.

Curious Facte About the Irregularitie.
of the Tides.
To tbe ordinary lauds man tides along
the coast are most puzzling. Be bas
been taught that the tides rise and
fall twice In the twenty-four hours
and that this depends in some mysterious way upon the moon. But when
It occurs that In bis travels he sees a
spot along the shore where there Is
no tide at all be is at n loss to' explain the phenomenon.   <!*%■■.
To be exact, there is only one ocean
in the world where the tides follow
the moon with absolute regularity.
This is tbe great Antarctic basin, and
the reason is that there and there only
is to be found a sweep of water entirely uninterrupted by land. The
enormous wave raised by the moon's
attraction courses round the world
south of Cape Horn aud the Cape of
Good Hope with absolutely nothing to
break it. In the northern hemisphere
great masses of land Interrupt tbe tidal
waves and, combined with the shallowness of Inland seas, cause them to
perform antics that seem most strange.
The depth of water has much to do
with tidal Irregularities. Out In the
open ocean, when the tide Is nbyssmal
—that Is, about 5,000 fathoms—the
speed of the waves is amazing' Where
the depth decreases to five fathoms the
tide travels at a comparatively slow
rate. In England, for example, which
is surrounded by narrow, land broken
seas, the result is that tbe Britons get
some of the most terrible and dangerous tidal races and currents.      '
The most formidable is the whirlpool between the Island of Jura and
Scarba, on- tbe west coast of Scotland. This is known as the "Caldron
of the Spotted Seas." Here is a race
running at a speed to be matched only
by a mountain torrent. The force of
a heavy tidal current pushing up a
wide mouthed river causes what is
termed a "bore." The most striking
example of this tidal feature is seen
on the Amazon, a moving wall of water thirty feet high and reaching from
bank to bank rushing inland from the
Errors That Were Pointed Out by Un-
■£      feeling Editors.
"Now. what do you think of that7"
asked tbe youthful illustrator ruefully
as be tossed his comrade a letter. It
was from an editor, and its mandate
was stern,   it said:
"Dear Sir—Permit me to call your
attention to tbe Importance of reading
a story before attempting to illustrate
it. I am aware that the modern artist
does -not observe this rule, but it is
imperative In this office. If you will
examine the text of the story sent you
for illustration you will learn that the
army officer mentioned is said to have
taken his fishing reel out of his haversack, and you have made a picture
showing this officer-who, by the way,
is a brigadier general—with a knapsack strapped to his back. A knapsack, my dear sir, is not a haversack.
Furthermore, ho army officer ever carried a knapsack or ever 'w11' carry
one. If the general should see your
drawing be would be insulted. Will
you please acquaint yourself thoroughly with tbe appearance of a haversack,
correct your drawing and return it to
this office at tbe earliest possible
date?' ■-'-•■
"Just think of having to know all
such details!" exclaimed the artist
"Tbafs nothing," bis studio, comrade
responded consolingly. "I made an
awful break once. 1 painted a picture
to illustrate a story in which a widow
got married, and 1 depicted the bride
in a long white veil. Of course 1
thought the drawing was a beauty
and a wonder, and 1 was ecstatic over
the way I bad bandied that effect in
white. Imagine bow crushed 1 wai
to have the editor—by tbe way, sh«
was a woman—smile witheringly and
tell me that no widow ever wore a
veil wben being remarried. How was
I to kaow that? I have never bees s

Without It There Would Exist a Queer
State of Affairs.
Without the atmosphere, besides ihe
Inconvenience to breathing, a great
many peculiar things would be observed that would seem very extraordinary to us. The sun would rise
straight up in the morning into a sky
"as black as ebony, traverse a black
sky and sink down to rest at night
into a black bed. No beautiful glories
of the sunset and sunrise would appear, no blueness of tbe heavens be
.seen, no red sun gradually growing
brighter, but one that would rise as a
fiery orb and remain thus all day. No
twilight and no daybreak could cheer
us, for there would be notblng to diffuse tbe light $
Unless tbe sun shone directly on a
thing we could not see It Thus our
houses would have to be. made ot
some transparent substance or else be
artificially lighted In the daytime. No
soothing shades would appear in the
landscape, but everything would stand
out boldly and clearly, every object
casting dense black shadows that
would render Invisible any one entering them. No voice or music could bo
beard, for there would be no medium
to carry it No birds or insects could
flit about in the trees and above us,
for there would be notblng to enable
them to utilize tbeir wing motion. No
clouds would be seen In tbe Intensely
black sky, and no thunderstorms or
high winds would be possible. No
vegetation could exist, and no animal
could live. In fact, this old earth
would be as dead as Hector as far as
activity was concerned.
?et this is tbe exact. condition of
affairs on tbe moon, which bas no atmosphere and consequently suffers every one of these disadvantages.
It is ratber interesting to contemplate the successive events on the
earth If tbe atmosphere should be
quickly removed. Tbe Brst thing tbat
would probably happen is that every
animal, insect, Osh, bird and plant
would suffer a violent explosion, for
each contains air at a pressure of fifteen pounds to tbe square inch on tbe
outside, wbicb is balanced by an equal,
pressure on tbe Inside and would rust-
outward on tbe first pressure being
removed. This can be showu by placing the band over an air pump and
gradually exhausting the air. Tbe part
exposed will gradually swell. Another
illustration- Is when a tornado sweeps
round a bouse, taking tbe outside air
away for an Instant If tbe house is
closed tbe windows and doors will be
blown outward wltb enormous force,
and sometimes tbe sides themselves of
the bouse are blown in all directions.

To kuow you have the correct
time. Just think of that extra
fifteen minute, in the morning,
ana why shouldn't you have it ?
Both at home and when travelling, correct time is a necessity,
and if your watch or clock does
not keep time you can rely on
having it repaired and put in
good order at a reasonable
charge by bringing it to me.
No job is too small and prompt
attention and good workmanship ensure satisfaction.
