Meeting pf City Council
Delegates wait on City Council - City will collect scavenger's
fee - Clerks salafy raised.
A meeting of the city council
was held on Saturday last, a full
attendance of aldermen being present.
The minutes of the previous
meeting having been read arid
adopted, Mr. Parkinson submitted
- a plan of the foreshore fronting
Block 47, Map 462, and asked the
council for their approval. He
mentioned that it was.the intention
of Messrs. D. W. Crowley & Co.,
who owned the block referred to;
to apply to the provincial government .for a lease of the f oreshoi e.
The plan was left with the council
to look into."
Mr. P. DuMoulin,  as  president
of the A. & T. Association, attend-,
ed and stated that the association
was considering the advisability of
making arrangements for   various
games to be played on the grounds
during exhibition  week.   'It was
suggested that possibly a lacrosse
match  would   be   held.; between
New Westminster and other teams:
This would necessitate the expenditure of about $ 1000  in. order to
bring the teams to Kelowna, and
about $500 miore^to"put the ground
in good condition for. the games.
7   These matches," Ke said, would be
a good advertisement for the city,
and he asked the council to con-
7 ihe advisability- of making a substantial grant.7Afteiksome'discussion the council *ag_^^, to^^H*^12:!
matter into consideration.'
Mr. Frank Fraser, manager of
the Kelovna Canning'Co., attended and asked that the council
7 would give him permission to
place weigh scales outside on the
road near the new building the
company was putting up alongside
of the Farmers' Exchange. He
also asked that the council would
grade a new road through from
Water street to Ellice streetrun-
ning parallel with Causton avenue
and in front of the new premises.
It was not considered advisable
to go into the matter at that meeting, and it was consequently left
over;   '"' ' y'   .
■ Aid. Jones, as chairman of
Park  committee, mentioned
various bulbs belonging to the city
were being taken care of by ex-
- mayor DrHart in Kis nursery.
. It was pointed out that a-number
of these 7would  not be required
for  planting   in   the   city    park
this year, and Aid. Jones was instructed to get a list of the surplus
bulbs and advertise the same.for
sale. .
Aid. Jones suggested that some

considered. , that people who
beautify their places by planting
trees along the street opposite
their premises should be protected.
. The by-law was looked up, and
provision" was found'*' for the
prosecution of persons damaging
such property, and that amendments had been passed recently.
The city clerk was consequently
instructed to- procure a copy of
the 1910 amendments to the
Municipal Clauses act, as legislation
was contained therein dealing with
the matter! ■!_'
The  following   accounts   were
referred to the  finance  committee
' to be paid if found correct:

and Febuary account ....$14 50
C. P. R., freight    12 24
C. Perrin, 9J hours on pole line.....
With reference to the scavenger1
collecting his fees the council
agreed to take in the collection of
the fees in future, same to be collected quarterly, .and that they
should be subject to 20 per cent,
for prompt payment. A. motion
was made covering the matter. •
It was mentioned in connection
with the park that there were
several things it was- necessary to
carry out at once, and the park
committee asked that they might
be empowered to expend the sum
of $50 in connection with the city
park. It was mentioned that
among other things, it was necessary
to place a wire fence at once round
the large flower bed, as the bulbs
were about to bloom. Authority
to spend the sum asked for was
The following motion was then
Stirling -Jones—That-the city
clerk's salary be raised to $100 per
month, to start from 1st of January,
Aid. Cox submitted plans of the
proposed buildings of Messrs.
Dalgleish & Glenn, which were in
course of . erection - -in. -Pendozi
street arid of Mr. Elliott's new
motor garage in Bernard avenue.
He asked that they might receive
the approval of the council. *
It was agreed to give the
building' inspector full power to
deal with all plans in future, provided they comply with the by-law
which governs same.
. The' meeting then adjourned, to
meet again on April 9th, at 8 p.m.

The annual session of the
Okanagan District meeting of the
Metljodist church will/be held; at
Kelowna, May 3ftl~a_ra~4th. The
.following'.' churches \vill be represented : Enderby, ; Armstrong,
Vernon, Long Lake; Mount View,

business to come before the session
will be the examination and
recommendation of candidates for
the ministry, ' The financial and
spiritual reports of the various
'.changes within the boupds of the.
district, and the election of dele-,
gates to the Annual Conference,
which this year is held in Nelson.
On Monday last the members of
the city council met the ratepayers
of Kelowna for the purpose of
explaining to them the two money
by-laws which were voted upon
Mayor Sutherland, occupied the
chair, and in the course of a few
preliminary remarks explained the
objects of the proposed by-laws—
one  to  raise the sum of $3500 to
pay for the reconstruction of the
power house after the fire of June
last, and the other to raise the sum
of $ 10,000 for the extension of the
waterworks system.    He suggested
the advisability of carrying the bylaws.     Aid."Stirling and   Leckie
would  take  the  matters  up   and
explain the reason why the present
council   had .decided  to ask the
people tb vote on raising the sums
Aid. Stirling went first of all into
the finances of the city, and said it
was again proposed to ask the
ratepayers for the money to pay
off the amounts owing on the reconstruction of the power house
and .plant. The old . council, although he did not wish to find
fault, left a remarkable excess
of expenditure over finances, and
amongst these was the sum of
$3,444 owing on the power house
account. It was now left to the
present council to deal with this
Shatter, ;_and' the ratepayers were
asked to; vote on a by-law to raise
the sum of $3,500.
As far as tumihg'down this bylaw was concerned, it-rested with
the people as to which they would
sooner do.     If, the   matter   was
turned ,down now, it; would turn
up again in the taxes, as the matter
would have to be cleared up, and
would  have  to  come out of the
current    year's    revenue.'-' ' This
would mean an extra four of'five
mills  on the  assessment.   It was
also mentioned that  the assessor
lias not made the assessment yet
v;|Mr.  Sutherland next expressed
his   desire    that    the   ratepayers
should vote for the by-law to raise
the sum of $ 10,000 for the extension
of the water works.   He explained
that the works were not paying at
present,   but   that   an   extension
I would be a means of making them
pay in. future.
He then called upon Aid. Leckie
to explain-the matter more fully to
the assembly.    ,
-Aid. Leckie, in explaining the
by-law, said it was not necessary
to go much into details. The
council did not wish to ask for the

asked to be allowed to spend it,
could it be'shown that a revenue
would be derived, from its expenditure.' No pipe would be put
in or connection made, unless a
sufficient number of persons were
ready to have their houses connected up.
By this, h- meant that there
wbljild have to be revenue enough
from .the extension to pay the
interest and sinking fund on the
money expended. He mentioned
that owing to the limited distribution of the present water system,
there, was a loss of about $500
which had to be made up. By extending the water system this loss
would,'be greatly relieved.
, Aid. Leckie, in explaining the
loss,, said that during the day it was
necessary to . keep a man. at the
power house.. This man was an
expense of $85 a month—added to
that was the cost of fuel and' oil
for the engines, or a cost of about
$TMT per 'month.
He" rnade reference to an advertisement that had/been inserted in
the paper, asking persons to send
in their names if they required
•water. There had been very little
expense, and only seven aplications
hacl been received. At present it
was estimated that extensions to
Aid. Stirling's house in Pendozi st,
and up Bernard avenue as far as
D. Lloyd-Jones' house, would pay.
Tlie people in that locality had
been canvassed, and it was con
sidered that these would be two
sure extensions made as soon as
the by-law was passed.
Aid. Leckie further stated that
the assessment roll in the past had
never been properly made out, but
this year a better assessment ofthe
property, will be made..
Aid. Leckie said that persons
who wanted the water should see
the city clerk, and also get the
neighbors to send in their names.
As soon as the names were received the council woul work the
matter out, and if it was found all
right, and that the installing of the
system in that district would pay
its proportion of the interest and
sinking fund, the connection would
be made. It was proposed to allow
the water to be used for general
household purposes, and for a
lawn sprinkler if required.
Aid. Leckie then went on to
speak'of .the pumping capacity of
the plant He* said that if the consumers of water were numerous
enough 'the council would consider
the advisability of putting In another punlp.
Mr. Newby asked hew the ex-
tendon could pay in the smaller
populated parts of the city, when!
the returns from the plant installed
in the thickly populated centre
showed a deficit It was practically
certain that the extention' could not
pay*   y.." Ay.yA-}: :': v"v" '     ■ "...
■' Aid." Leckie^ replied- that   the
pump was working at present at a
very low rate.   The pump   was
easily capable of handling' double
the amount of water it was handling now, and the cost of operating j
would  be   practically" the   same. I
The revenue derived fronr the extra
water used would  easily pay up
the .loss that was being made at
present.     A storekeeper who   is
losing money, must do one of two
things—either get out or improve
conditions.   It was practically the
same with die water.system.   It.is
losing money, and it would be a
hard thing for it to get out so the
only feasible-.. plan seems to be to
improve \ the ' conditions..   It was
with that, object that the ratpayers
were asked to vote on the water
extention by-law..-;
Mr. F. R. E. DeHart asked as to
what pipe, would. be used in the
It had been.decided to .use wire
wound wooden pipe, replied Mr.
Leckie. This pipe had been found
very satisfactory in other places.;
"Will it last twenty years?"
asked Mr. DeHart.
Wooden pipei said Aid. Leckie,
had been chosen because the soil
here was very hard on black, iron
pipe, and cast iron pipe was too
expensive. Aid. Harvey, as a civil
engineer, was strongly in favor of
wooden pipe insted of black iron
In South Vancouver wooden pipe
is being used, and has proved
satisfactory so far. _ That district is
contemplating putting in about 50
miles of wood pipe this year. It-
Seattle the pipe, had proved satisfactory, and been tested for twenty
years, while one of the border
towns, he believed it was Robson,
had had the pipe in for thirty years.
The council proposed using an 8
inch pipe, and had satisfied themselves that it was advisable to put
in wooden pipe with a galvanized
iron wire binding. .
It was suggested that as the soil
was so bad on iron, possibly'the j
galvanized iron wire would perish
and render the pipe useless, i
, Aid. Leckie said he had seen
demonstrations conducted with the
galvanized iron wire by a chemist,
pronounced the galvanizing complete and unbroken,: even if bent
nearly double. In one case the
galvanizing broke, but this was
only one case out of many, tests.
Several tests had been, conducted,
but he, (Aid. Leckie,) was of the
opinion that the galvanizing stopped the chance of rot on the wire.
He was next asked if the wate.
system would be extended down
aide streets, to which question he
replied that, extensions would be
made, provided that sufficient
people could be found to take the
water, and to cover the interest
and sinking fund on die outlay.
Asked if an extension would be
made to the hospital, Aid; Leckie '
replied that it would be made as .
long as sufficient water was used to '
make the extension pay.    In fact,
the system would   be; extended,
everywhere,    provided   sufficient -.
people took the water to pay the -
interest and sinking fund on the
- Asked about rates, Aid. Leckie
said that possibly a set rate would '-'
be made per tap. This rate; however, if disputed by the owner of a
large house, a meter would be put
in, and the person would be charged on meter rate. The cost of the
meter, however, would be bourne
by the householder.
Mr. Newby again contended that
if the water did not pay when
distributed in the thickly populated
part ofthe town, that it would not
pay if extended in the outside districts, where the'pipe would have,
to run some 200. feet before the
next house was connected up.
Aid. Leckie took Mr. Newby at
his own figures, and explained that
if 200 feet of pipe was' extended,
the cost, laid dowii on interest and
sinking fund, would be $ 13.50 per
annum. If only one tap was taken
and a rate of $[.50 was levied per
tap per month, it would- mean that
the revenue would be $18.00 per
annum, and; that it, would pay, for'
the installation. '   • / '.
Mrv ^ Newby.   contended    that
fire • protection was needed
in the upper parts of the town, and
also there was no police protection.
He did not consider that the out-
side-places should vote on- paying
for debentures that were issued to
develop the heart of the town..
He challenged Aid. Leckie on
the question of the p6\yer house,
and also on thei various1 'prbri-ises
that were made by that gerid&nan
at the time of ,. the , elections.
Changes were to be made,, at, the
Eoyrer house.. What changes had
een made ?..,' .,^'..7-,'.'..';
Nearly every venture, continued
Mr. Newby, has been put before
iis as a paying proposition,: and all
ventures were proposed to be self-
sustaining. Has the electric light
been so?
Mr. Leckie said that the money
voted would hot ber used unless
some provision was made whereby
the installation would pay for itself
from the first ■ In reply to the
statement that the power house
did not pay, he was of the opinion
that very few ventures of this kind
did pay the first year. If die people
all over the town could be induced
to take electric light,. the charges
would go down, and would be as -
cheap as any other light, at the
same time the plant Would pay_,
Mr. NewbyremiridedAId. Leckie
ofhis statement made at the general
meeting, viz, that he' was pleased
to have been instrumental in turning By-law No. 61 down. Now it
comes up again-—why not turn it
down ? Tell me the difference in
conditions at the power house,
continued Mr. Newby.
Aid. Leckie said it was immaterial to him as to whether the
by-law was turned down'or not:-
if it was turned down, the money
had to be paid, and the only way
would be to " soak " it into the
taxes, or else to cany it on as long:
as it would go.
His reason for turning the last
by-law down was that the money '
market at that time was very tight.  '.
t   Mr. Newby turned tb the ques*
tion of selling the old fure en|ine
and buying two chemicid «_tf^nes  '
to take their place, and a SOpie-

A well attended meeting of farmers was held in the hall last
Wednesday evening to discuss the
arrangements in regards to the
proposed Rutland Farmers' Institute. A communication from the
government was read by the
secretary, Mr. Lansdowne, to the
effect that Rutland was asked to
join in with the Kelowna institute.
Several of those present took part
in the discussion, the feeling of the
meeting being strongly in favor of
an independent institute. It was
eventually decided to forward a
petition to the department, signed
by the residents, asking that the
institute be chartered as in the
original petition. The petition was
then drafted out and signed by all
those present, and Mr. Lansdowne
is now procuring further signers in
the neighborhood. The balance of
the meeting was taken up by Mr.

one time that Kelowna was out of

.expected, as Kelowna possesses
too good a bunch of sports, both
male and female, to be left out in
the cold. There is no reason why
the old spirit of friendly rivalry of
last year should not be just as keen
as ever. The Summerland prospects for the season were never

Shortly after one o'clock on Sunday morning the inmates of the
Alkazar hotel at Keremeos station
were aroused by. fire, and had
barely time to get out with their
lives. The fire started in room 7
upstairsv, over the bar through
which a stovepipe went from the
stove in the bar, but as the fire was
believed to have been out for
hours it seems difficult to understand that it could have arisen
from that cause. J. Crosby slept in
the room adjoining and was
awakened by the smoke. He had
only time to grab a few of his
garments and get out, his trunk
and other belongings being burnt.
The place in most danger was the
livery stables of Innis Bros., and
only the most strenuous work on
the part of those who came to the
assistance saved it from a like fate.
The amount of insurance is believed to be between $2000 and
$3000, while the total loss is
placed at about $5000.

the other day, and Mr. Martin
Burrel was responsible for uphold-
. ing the good name of B.C. fruit.
Hon. Mr. Fisher expressed the
opinion that the best fruit was
grown in the province of Quebec,
an opinion that drew upon him the
wrath of the members of the various fruit growing provinces. Mr.
Martin Burrell quoted from a
speech; made by the minister of
agriculture, in which he said that
the quality and flavour of the fruit
of Quebec was. superior to that of
. British Columbia. He would not
admit this claim.
Mr. Fisher said that he could
take no.exception to the remarks
made by Mr. Burrell. Splendid
work was being done in British
Columbia. He knew thai the
.fumigation, station in B.C. was not
large enough,, and would^ have
taken means,to enlarge it this year
He must insist, however, giving the
palm of fruit production to the
province of. Quebec, which both
as to quality and flavour produced
the best apples in the world. At
the same time he"appreciated the
high quality of the B.C. fruit

The Sixth Annual Convention of
the Okanagan District Sunday
School Association, was held in
Summerland, Mar. 23rd and 24th.
The total number of registered
delegates reached the magnificent
number of 110. Fifty-five of these
were from outside points. Rev.
H. A. Solly, rector of the English
Church, occupied the chair. He
has been the efficient president of
the Association for the past year.
The -attendance at each session
was splendid showing the keen interest taken by the people of this
valley in religious education. A
fine spirit of co-operation was
manifest on the part of each denomination represented.
The good people of Summerland
were most hospitable in the entertainment of their guests, doing all
in their power to make the visitors
at home and charm them with the
delights of that portion of the
valley. The work of the field secretary Rev. I. W. Williamson and
the addresses of Rev. W. C. Merritt
of Tacoma, where highly appreciated. All those taking part in the
program did so with credit to
themselves and profit to the Convention. The paper by Rev. D. J.
Welsh of Kelowna, on the Religious Education of the Adolescent,
received very favorable comment
with a request from the Convention
for publication. The following
officers were elected: hon. president, A. L. Fortune, Enderby;
president, J. R. Brown, Summer-'
land; vice president, Mr. Miller,
Penticton ; secretary treasurer, J.C.
Robson, Summerland. Penticton
was chosen as the next place of-
On Thursday evening, for the
benefit of the visitors, a fast and
interesting game of Basket Ball
was played between Summerland
and Okanagan College with the
result of a score of 18 to 20 in favor of the town team.
This game was veiy much enjoyed by those who had not the
opportunity of witnessing this favorite sport before.
The Explanation Given by the Book on
They were newly married and were
calling upon one of the friends of the
bride who had been particularly pleasant upon the. occasion of their wedding. The bridegroom, apropos of
nothing, began to talk about phrenology and told how his wife had discovered two very prominent bumps on the
back of his head. He was proud of,
them. So was she, and she passed him!
around that the host and hostess mlght1
feel the bumps and know of their existence. Then she explained:
"My book on phrenplogy says that
they mean good memory and generosity."
It was evident that she was proud
of the facts, and so was he. But the
host, being of nn inquiring turn of
mind, wished to satisfy himself, so he
got down a phrenological work from
one of his library shelves and after
much labor foupd the bumps on the
chart. Turning to the notes, he read,
seriously at first, then unsteadily. The
bride became suspicious, but she was
game and said:
"Read it out loud. Please do!" And
the ho . read:
"These bumps are most frequently
found on cats and monkeys."
Other topics consumed the remain

Daniel Webster Was Not Long In Discovering Its Source.
Once years ago, when Daniel Webster was secretary of state, there was
an important foreign matter up for discussion before the cabinet and the utmost secrecy was of course maintained, but tbe whole thing was blazoned
about In a few hours after the cabinet
meeting. So the president hastily sent
for his cabinet to talk over this leak.
Each man bad a different idea of It
Finally Mr. Webster arose, saying,
"You, gentlemen, go on with your discussion, and I'll be back in a minute."
In a few minutes he returned and repeated every word that had been spoken in the room in his absence. He
explained that if by standing close to
the door outside the cabinet room you
held your ear to it yotfcould not distinguish one intelligible word, but if
moving back from the door and a little
to one side upon a certain spot in the
carpet you kept an attentive ear every word could be plainly heard as
though whispered. Some enterprising
eavesdropper bad been experimenting
with the door and had found that
upon that exact spot there was some
acoustic propel of the door or room
that conveyed the sound in perfect entirety.
The auctioneer had auctioneered for
the last time, for he was very ill and
lay now almost at death's door.
> Beside bis bed stood the doctor and
the auctioneer's wife, anxiously watching each symptom, each movement,
each respiration.
"Doctor," hoarsely whispered tho
hammer wlelder's wife, "what is his
pulse now?'
The doctor raised the patient's wrist
"His pulse," he answered, "is now
going at 104."
The auctioneer sat up excitedly In
"Going at 1041" he cried feebly. "Go-
ing at 104! Who'll make it 105? Do I
hear 105 for a pulse that has been running steadily for forty-seven years and
never once stopped? Will you bid 1051!
Who'll make It 105?"
But no one made It 105. And a minute later the auctioneer was going—go*

by hope of welcoming a son. What of

to keep chill airs away, for presently
the door is sealed witb snow. The

'Eye X)pener' Caught at Last
Robert C. Edwards, proprietor
of a paper whtch he has carried all
over Canada, was arrested last
Thursday on a charge of publishing obscene literature, and was
later released upon bail of $ 1000.
Edwards, whose publication is
known as the "Eye Opener," has
been treading upon legal quicksands for some time but succeeded
in keeping but of trouble with the
police until recently.
After being run out of Calgary,
refused the right to publish by
Toronto, and getting a removal
notice from Port Arthur, Edwards
moved to Winnipeg, wnere he was
viewed with general disfavor, but
his connections of filth have been
so cleverly veiled that it was previously . impossible to cause his
arrest with any certainty of being
able to proVe the charge.
The arrest of Edwards concludes
one of the best seven days' work
the police have recorded. It puts,
temporarily at least, the only two
papers of the kind printed in Canada out of commission, and rids
Winnipeg of a dirty blemish'.
New British Cruiser
Is of Type Recommended for Future
Canadian Navy
The cruiser Bristol, launched at
Clydesbank, Glasgow, a fortnight
ago, is the prototype of the light
armoured cruisers adopted by the
Canadian and Australian governments as eminently suited to the
needs of the outlying parts of the
Empire. She was appropriately
coristened by Lady Bristol, and it
will not be very long before she
will br commissioned as a part of
the fighting force of the British
'navy." •':.   ' • x7.
Tike .type is being built for use in
the main fleets of the British, navy,
and. has. been recommended, by
naval experts for use in Canada
and Australia. The following description has just been_ received'
from England: The Bristol/measures 435 feet between perpendiculars, has beam of 47 feet, a depth
of 26 feet 9 inches, and a displacement at the normal load line-of
4850 tons. Her steel built hull is
divided into .a number of watery
-right compartments, and equipped
with a double bottom in which
oil fuel will be carried. The engines, boiler magazines, and bfL&r
vital parts_'.ar enclosed in an arched
steel prbteciriye deck extending
..over all the length of the ship, and.
and the coal bunkers, which will
take about 600 tons, will also give
protection in parts. The propelling
machinery includes two sets of
Brown-Curtis turbines, and steam
.will be supplied by a dozen Yarrow water tube boilers. A speed
of 25 knots is expected, with a
horsepower of 22,000.
"'•■'.■The-;turbinesenclosed in watertight compartments, ahead and
astern, and are the latest things for
speed and manoeuvring. Three
boiler rooms enclose the boilers,
and these are fitted for both forms
of, firing-rcoal or.oil.
The armament will include two
6-inch guns—one mounted on the
^forecastle and the other aft, and
firing directory ahead and astern;
ten 4-inch guns mounted at convenient points on the upper deck;
and two 18-inch torpedoes. The
big-; guns will be able to lay and
fire, through 270 degrees. _
". The cruiser, which will be manned by n crew of about 350 all
told, will be rigged with masts, and
flitted with four funnels. The
bridge, conning tower and captain's
watch will be on the forecastle,
which.is abnormally lengthened.

Gluttony of 8olIman and the Appetite
of Louis XIV.
-touching the matter of eating, the
stories told by the old chroniclers and
historians of the abnormal appetites of
certain Soman and oriental men of
note fairly stagger belief.
Gibbon tells of Sollman, a caliph in
the eighth century, who died of acute
indigestion in his camp near Ohalds,
In Syria, Just as he was about to lead
an army of Arabs against Constantinople. He had emptied two baskets of
eggs and figs, which he swallowed
alternately, and the repast was finished with marrow and sugar. In a pilgrimage to Mecca the same caliph bad
eaten with Impunity at a single meal
seventy pomegranates, a kid, six fowls
and a huge quantity of the grapes of
Such a statement would defy belief
were not others of a similar character
well avouched. Louis XIV. could hardly boast of an appetite as ravenous as
Soliman's,-but he would eat at a sitting four platefuls of different soups, a
whole pheasant a partridge, a plateful of salad, mutton hashed with garlic, two good sized slices of ham, a
dish of pastry and finish this ample
repast with fruit and sweetmeats.—

Victorian Gods.
If Thackeray, with a brain weighing
fifty-eight and one^half ounces, had
the biggest head among Victorian writer whVlwdthe^ best features? The
choice would seem to lie between Tennyson and Henry Taylor. "That man
moat be a poet" remarked' one of his.
Cambridge contemporaries when he
first saw Tennyson come Into tlie hall
at Trinity, and another friend de-'
scribes him In bis undergraduate days
as six feet high, broad chested, Btrong
limbed, his face Shakespearean, with,
deep, eyelids; his forehead, ample,
crowned with dark wavy- balr; -his
head finely poised, his hand the admiration of sculptors. Bat time'dealt,
none too gently with Tennyson, whereas1 Henry Taylor, always a distinguished locking man, seems to have
grown singularly majestic with ye&rB.,
Grant Doff, meeting Wm when he was
over eighty, notes tbat "Taylor looks
more like Jupiter than ever," and con-1
temporary ^ memoirs are full of references to his Jove-llke appearance.—

thai chance existed in history. "A
cause must necessarily underlie every

which they spring. It was not Caesar
who destroyed the Soman republic.
The republic was de^d before Caesar

Sir Frederick Treoes Condemns
One of the strongest indictments against
alcohol taken as a food, a medicine, a beverage, or on any other pretext, was delivered by Sir Frederick Treves, of London,
at the annual meeting of the Church of
England Temperance Society. He said
that alcohol was, of course distinctly a
poison. It had certain uses, like other poisons, but the limitations on its use should
be as strict as on arsenic, opium, and
strychnine. It was a curiositly insidious
poison, producing the effects which seemed to be only relieved by taking more of,
it—a remark which applied to another insidious poison, morphia, or opium. It had
a certain position as medicine, but in the
last twenty-five years its use by the medical
profession has steadily and emphatically
diminished. People were often heard to
say that alcohol was an excellent appetizer
when taken before meals; but the appetite
did not need artificial' stimulation; if the
body wanted feeding it demanded food.
As for its " aiding digestion," it hindered
digestion even when takenin small amounts,
as could be easily demonstrated.
Then there was the idea that alcohol was
strenghtening. As a matter of fact, it curiously modified the nourishment of the
body; it greatly lessened the output of
carbonic acid—a very important matter—
so that the drunkard was necessarily an
ill-nourished man ; and to reach the acme
of physical condition was impossible if
any alcohol was used. Its stimulating effect was only momentary, and after that
had passsd off the capacity for work fell
jJlcohol as a Work 'Producer
Alcohol, he continued, brought up the
whole of the reserve forces of the body
and threw them into action, and when
these were used up there was nothing to
fall back upon. It dissipated rather than
conserved bodily energy. As a work producer it waa exceedingly extragant, and
might lead to physical bankrutcy; and he
was not speaking, he would remind them,
of excessive drinking.
It was a curious fact that troops could
not march on alcohol. In the Ladysmith
relief column which he accompanied, the
first men to drop out were simply the men
that drank. The fact was as clear as if
they had all borne labeli on their backs.
As for the  statement that alcohol was.
"a great thing for the circulat'on," it increased the heart-beat and reddened the
skin by using up the body's reserve power;
but then the heart's action became emphatically weaker, a temporary effect being got
al an enormous cost. The action of alcohol on the central nervous system was very
dennate, and was that of a functional poi-

Alcohol Inconsistent with Surgery
The use of alcohol, concluded Sir
Frederick, was absolutely inconsistent with
a surgeon's work, or with any work de-
mamding an alert judgement. He -was
much struck by the number of propeesional
men who for this reason had discontinued
the use of alcohol in the middle of the
The iast notion that he would refer to
was that alcohol kept out the cold—that a
" little nip'' was good when going out into
into cold air, and so forth. In the words
of a great authority, alcohol really lowered
the temperature of the body by increased
loss of heat and, to some extent, by increased oxidation, and muchreduced the power
of the bocy to resist the cold.
Finally, he would say that the great
laudable ambition of all, and especially of
young men, to be " fit" could not possibly
be achieved if they took alcohol. It was
simply proposterous to suppose that any
young healthy person needed any alcohol
whatever; and, indeed, he was much better without the smallest amount of it.
Having spent the greater part of his life
operating, he would say, with Sir James
Paget, that of all people those he dreaded
to operate on were the drinkers. He hoped that what he said would help his
hearers to answer such absolute fallacies
as " A glass of port can do you no harm."

Vancouoer Tug Pounders.
A report is received from Steveston that
the gasoline freighter Arthur B., laden with
cement from Seattle for Evans, Coleman,
and Evans, of Vancouver, sank in the Gulf
last week. She carried a crew of six
hands. A stiff westerly breeze prevailed
in the Gulf at the time, and off the Sands
Heads a big sea was running. At 8
o'clock in the evening the Arthur B. called
at Steveston and left shortly after. The
light-keeper in charge of the lightship off
the- Fraser river' saw the vessel at 9:30
o'clock laboring heavily, and while he was
watching she foundered before his eyes
and went down. The skipper was Capt.
Max Granahan, and the owner is a Vancouver man.
Lytton Merchant: Murdered.
John B. Barrick, one of the oldest merchants of Lytton, was murdered*in his
store last week. Barrick was 78 years of
age and formerly conducted a store at
Thompson. He was burned out eight
years ago, when he went down to Lytton
and opened up another business. The
motive for the killing is not known. The
murderer entered the store and without
warning shot the old man and made his
escape. There is intense excitement in
Lytton over the tragedy.
Immigrants Must Bring Money.
An order-in-council has been passed
providing that any immigrant, male or
female, entering Canada, also persons
coming from across the border between
March 1st and October 30th, must have in
his or her possession at the time of arrival
at least $25 in cash in addition to a ticket
or such sum of money as will'purchase
transportation to the said immigrant's destination in .Canada. It is also provided
that if an immigrant is the head of a family
and is accompanied ^by members of such
family, he or she must have a further sum
of money equal to $25 for each member of
the family of eighteen years or" upward,
and $12.50 for each member of said family
between five and fifteen years of age, in
addition to tickets or money for transportation. Between November 1st and the last
day of February it is required that each
immigrant must have in cash double the
amounts mentioned above. It is further
provided that immigration agents may
exempt any immigrant from the operation
of the.foregoing regulations if it is shown
to his satisfaction that.they are assured of
employment at farm work or aa domestic
servants and have the means of reaching
such place of employment.
Guarantee 50,000 Hogs.
Several hundred farmers between Ed-
monton and Vegreville on the Canadian
Northern railroad have agreed to supply
the required number of hogs stipulated by
the department of agriculture to the Prov-
incial Co-operative Pork Packing plant.
This is the result of the canvas of these
districts which has just been completed by
W. F. Stevens, provincial live stock com-
missioner. The government has stipulated
that 50,000 hogs pe annum must be guaranteed before they will undertake the
establishment of the plant toward which
$50,000 has already been voted.

Water Potoer. in B.C.
Hon. Mr. Oliver has introduced a bill the
object of which is to confirm and declare
the rights of the crown to water privileges
in the railway belt of British Columbia.
The bill will enable the carrying forward
of power rights which were granted by the
Provincial Government until such time as
the privy council gives a decision as to
whether such rights are vested in provincial or federal authority. Another, object
of the bill, Mr. Oliver explained is to allow
the development of water power pending
such judgment.
8,000 Immigrants Coming West
Over 3,000 immigrants passed through
Montreal last week and are now on their
way to western Canada. Out of this number about 85 per cent, are British and the
balance foreigners. At present there are
about 6,000 on the way to Canada.
Train Wreck Near Bismarck.
Twenty people were injured, two of them
seriously, when a Minneapolis, St. Paul

injured were taken to hospitals where
their wounds were attended to. Ten others
were kept at the state penitentiary, near
where the wreck occurred, for further
treatment. The train was running about 20
miles an hour when the tire of a wheel on
the smoking car came off, etnd the wheels
slipped from the track. The mail car,
baggage car, and two day coaches and
superintendent Derricks private car were
thrown upon their sides and dragged for

Wealthy Homesteaders
A remarkable thing about the exodus of
immigrants to Canada is their comparative
wealth. The Empress of Britain recently
left England with 200 homesteaders, the
poorest of whom possessed £300. The
majority carry £1,000 or more. They are
mainly farmers.

The Story, of How a  Rich  American
I   Was  Worked  by  a  Crafty  Oriental
Salesman—Under the Mystic Spell of
:   the Dim, Religious Light.
Writing of "The Passing of the Antique Rug" In the Century, John Kim-
berly Mumford tells this story:
It Is beyond question cheaper to buy
In America your rag and tbe Ingenious
tale that goes with It than to wait until you Tlslt Constantinople or Smyrna
or Cairo or Tlflls. They are much
more skillful and Insinuating over
there. Tbey have the advantage of
local color and environment, and your
common sense Is under tbe spell of the
east to begin wltb.
Here Is an Incident to illustrate. A
party of rich Americans arrived In
Cairo one day several winters ago on
a yachting trip and passed a week or
more In sightseeing. One of them had
Just finished a palatial houso not far
from New York and throughout Europe had bought marbles and bronzes,
woodwork and velvets for It with a
lavish hand. The journey to Cairo
was made In order to secure rugs.
What happened is best told In the
words of a dealer In the bazaar, from
whom 1 bad It
"There was a fellow In our concern," he said, "who was always buying nightmares, and 1 had to work'
myself black in tbe face to get rid of
them. The week before the Americans came this chap had taken in a
shockingly bad pair of Klrmans, enormously big. new and, to my mind, utterly unsalable. When tbe bead of
the house saw them he held up his
bands and shouted, 'Get rid of those
things for a hundred pounds to the
first person who'll buy them.'
"So I rolled them up and put them
one side, Intending tp send them to a
commission man In the bazaar to unload. Next morning In came Moneybags from New York with his whole
company. He said he wanted to see
the best carpets 1 bad, and he saw
them. I turned the place inside out
Nothing pleased him, for the reason
that I made the common mistake of
pbowing him too much. He thought I
had something hidden away, so he
winked me over into one corner and
told me who he was.. 'Now,' said he,
'I want you to limber up. I want the
best, and I don't mind price If I get
what suits me.'
"I was In despair, for I bad actually
shown the man every carpet I had.
All of a sudden I thought of these two
freaks baled away the day before. I
almost laughed lu bis face, but finally
I pulled my.mouth down and began
salaaming and asked bim why In the
world he hadn't told me who he was
In the beginning, then 1 shouldn't have
wasted his time and abused his patience so.
"He grinned triumphantly. 'I thought
you had them,' be said.
" 'But' said I,' 'it will take a little
time to get at them, and I must ask
you and your friends to wait patiently.'
"They waited, aud I tell you'for the
next half hour the men around that
shop earned their pay. We went upstairs and unrolled those "two rugs.
We bad, a great big curtain of green
plush, which we hung against the
wall. Then we pressed the carpets
out and put them up against the curtain. That, you know, Is worth 50 per
cent to tbe looks. Then we adjusted
the lights and stationed men all
around to look as solemn as worshipers. Nobody was to speak above a
whisper, and «%ry man was to, muiv
mur__M-__laIIahl, at appropriate intervals.
"When everything was ready I ushered tbe customers up and' on tiptoe
led them lo. There Is no doubt about
it, the effect was fine.. At first everybody was still. It was like a church.
"'Ah,' said the great man, 'that Is
what I came for. I knew you had
them. You needn't tell me the price.
Just, aend them to tbe yacht at Ales-
"That night I went up to the hotel
where they were stopping and got his
check for 60,000 francs for the pair.
And that wasn't the best of It I had
got Into my stride then, and while he
was busy annexing the Klrmans I had
The porters bring up seven of the carpets he had refused downstairs and
showed them in that dim religious
light, unrolling them as If they had
been sacred and sighing soulfully every
now and then. He bought the whole
seven and to the day of his death fully
believed that I was the original wizard
of the east"
Etiquette of Lettari.
Blighty years ago the etiquette of
letters was far more rigid than now.
Even the twopenny post was not considered good- enough - for correspondence addressed to persons 6f any
standing. In her "Reminiscences of
an Octogenarian" Miss Louisa Packe
tells us that when her father had occasion to • write to Londoners In his
own class of life the letter was al-
i waya conveyed by a. servant not for
: any reasons of urgency, but because
| tlie post was considered a vulgar medium of , communication for persons
residing in the same city and only to
be used for the conveyance of letter-
to the country.—London Chronicle.

Night  Eternal   Reigns Over  One-half
4 of Her Globe.
To have the sarue hemisphere exposed everlastingly to sunlight white
the other Is In perpetuity turned away
must cause a state of things of which
we can form but faint conception from
what we know on earth. Baked for
aeons without letup and still baking,
the sunward face must if unshielded
be a Tophet surpassing our powers adequately to portray. And unshielded it
must be, as we shall presently see.
Reversely the other must be a hyperborean expanse to which our polar regions are temperate abodes, for upon
one whole hemisphere of Venus tho
sun never shines, never so much as
peeps above the star studded horizon-
Night eternal reigns over half of her
globe. The thought would appall tho
most Intrepid of our arctic explorers
and prevent at least everybody from
going to the pole, or, rather, what
here replaces it, "through the dark
continent." It exemplifies the eventual effects of a force In astronomical'
mechanics the Importance of which Is
only beginning to be appreciated, tidal
friction. It has brought Venus as a,
world to the deathly pass we have contemplated together. Starting merely
as a brake upon her rotation, it has
ended by destroying all those physical
conditions which enable our own
world to be what it is. Night and day,
summer and winter, beat and cold, are
vital vicissitudes unknown now upon
our sister orb. There nothing changes
while tbe centuries pass. An eternity
of deadly deatblassness is Venus' statuesque lot.—Dr. Percival Lowell In

Not a Classical   Player, but  He
witched His Hearer*.
Tbe truth Is that Ole Bull was not a
classical player. As I remember him,
he could not play in strict tempo. Like
Chopin, he indulged in the rubato and
abused the portamento. But be knew
his public. America, particularly In
the 'regions visited, was not in the
mood for sonatas or concertos. "Old
Dan Tucker" and the "Arkansaw Traveler" were the mode. Bull played them
both, played jigs and old tunes, roused
the echoes with the "Star Spangled
Banner" and Irish melodies. He played such things beautifully, and it
would have been musical snobbery to
say that you didn't like tbem. STou
couldn't help yourself. Tbe grand old
fellow bewitched you.
He was a handsome Merlin, wltb a
touch of the charlatan and a touch,of
Liszt In his tall, willowy figure, small
waist and heavy head of hair. Such
white hair! It tumbled in masses
about bis kindly face like one of his
native Norwegian cataracts. He was
the most picturesque old man I ever
saw except Walt Whitman, at that
time a steady attendant of the Carl
Gaertner string quartet concerts In
Philadelphia.. (And what Walt didn't
know about music he made up in his
love for stray dogs. He was seldom
without canine company,)—James Hu-
neker In Everybody's Magazine.
A Lesson For Nellie.
Mrs. Washington was a strict disciplinarian about certain matters and
among other things always required
the members of the household to follow the example of her husband and
dress for dinner, which was at 3
o'clock. On one occasion Nellie Cus-
tis and her cousin, Martha Dandrldge,
appeared at the table In their morning
gowns, but no comment was made
upon It until a coacb was seen approaching and the visitors, some
French officers of high rank and
Charles Carroll, Jr., of Carrollton, one
of Miss Custls' ardent suitors, were
announced. Instantly the girls, in a
• flutter of excitement, begged to be excused In order to change their-gowns,
but Mrs. Washington shook her head.
"No," she said. "Remain as you are.
' A costume good enough for President
Washington is good enough for any
guest of his." Needless to say, Miss
Nellie never overlooked. her proper
garb for dinner again. — National

which it has.

Pic-nicing at one of the many beauty spots
on the Okanagan Lake.
Orchard City
of British Columbia,
s credited with more winnings in open competition with fruit from all parts oj the American
continent, than any other city in B.C. '».;.;'
There cannot be a more desirable spot than
Kelowna and district for the man who wants to
let up a little on the hard toil of the prairie, or
to the family looking for a more congenial spot
to settle in^ where life's necessities, together with
a few of its luxuries, will not take so much of
the sweat of the brow in the winning.
Come in out of the cold and the wet. Enjoy
the Sunny Okanagan's long beautiful summer
whilst making your little pile, with the comfort-
able assurance that you will not have to suffer
through a long, cold, tedious winter. There is
no winter here as a prairie man understands it,
the thermometer rarely going down to zero.
