Mayor . Sutherland   mentioned
that an application had been received from the city band for, a grant
of money from the city..
■y Aid. Cox understood that a grant
of $300 had already been
agreed to- He was a member-of
- the band committee and he would
like to suggest that they, do their
verybest for the band.   The city
' had now a beautiful' park and a
good band stand and. it was necessary that they should have" a good
band. , But~ there was a certain
amount of expenses which a band
had to meet. The boys; turned out
time after time and got scarcely
anything for their services. But
they had to have a leader, and it
was impossible to get a good leader, without paying him. Mr. Tom
Robertson had brought the band
into a high state of efficiency, and
. _had. orenerally- prbyedrra- capita!
man tor the position.    But he was
■ leaving shortly for Vancouver and
they would have to get someone
else. They wanted to be able ,to
get a good man, and to do that
they would have to pay for it. He
pointed out too that a leader could
not be hired merely for the summer
months. Mr. Robertson had been
busy all through the winter training
his men and a good deal of hard
work had been put in. Vernon, he
said, paid their band leader $500
yearly and moreover sent their
band down to New Westminster.
Aid. Jones thought that the question of grants should be taken up
by the finance committee. There
were several cases which would
have to be considered. The board
of trade would be wanting a grant
for .advertising purposes, and this
was a matter which could not be
ignored.   The committee could go
'into, the matter of the various grants
and report to the council. ,
Returning to the application of
the citybririd,AId. Harvey made the
suggestion that the band should get
so rriuch for each night that they
Aid. Leckie thought that this
would be much more satisfactory
as the council would then know exactly what they were getting for the
money expended.
After.a little figuring it was suggested that the council pay $ 15 each
for twenty concerts. On consulting
the calendar, twerity concerts wasr
found to be more than the band
could reasonably be expected to
get in during the summer season,
so the figures were reversed* mak-
it $20 each for fifteen concerts.
This Aid. Leckie pointed out
was just the same thing as a grant
of $300. r. 7
The.following was accordingly
passed, moved by Aid. Leckie and
seconded by Aid. Harvey, "That a
grant-of $300 be made to the City
Band at the rate of $20 for each of
the fifteen band concerts held in
the city park."
The following communication
was read from Dr. Boyce.
To the Mayor and. Aldermen of
City of Kelowna.
Dear Sirs,—As the position stipendiary magistrate requires so much of
of my time, I wish to have my salary raised to $750 per annum, beginning on July 1st 1910.
Sincerely yours
B. F. Boyce.
..-Aid. Stirling said he was under
the impression that the position of
stipendiary magistrate was a government appointment and as such
the city had nothing to do with it.
Mayor Sutherland looked, up the
Act and found that the fixing and
controlling of the magistrates salary
was in the hands of the Lieutenant
Governor. When the city recommended the magistrate to the government, they had ajso recommended that the salary be $30 per month.
The government however had- .fixed it at $250 per year. ' /'.
• The clerk was<instruered-to write
Dr. Boyce stating that the salary
was fixed by the provincial, government, and that the city council had
no power to make any alteration. *
.It was moved arid seconded that
By-Law No. 74, to raise $3,000 to
complete erection of School building, and;-By.Law.No. 75, to raise

Advertising tales upon application.
The new Canadian immigration
regulations have raised a storm of
protest in the newspapers of the
Old Country, and in a few of the
papers of the east. The chief points
of objection seem to be those
which require an immigrant other
than a farm labourer or domestic
servant to have at least $25 in cash
clear at point of destination ; the
other exception taken is that consent and approval to charity aided
emigrants must first be obtained
from the superintendent of immigration at London, before entry
into Canada, will be allowed.
What objection any fair thinking
man can make to above regulations we fail to see. Surely it must
be conceded that Canada herself
must be the best and safest judge
as to what class of immigrants are
needed and desirable to open up
her vast stretches of unpeopled
land, and to preserve the industrial
balance of the mon; thickly settled
portions of the country. To leave
Canada open as a general dumping
ground would be to incur untold
misery upon thouands of forlorn
arrivals finding no place suited to
their abilities 'or lack of abilities,
adding the burden of their support
to those already engaged in  carv-1
ing out their future in a new land.
It is well known 6n both sides of
the Atlantic that farm hands and
domestic servants can be accommodated at once on landing, that
Canada needs them and must have
them. But it is not so with other
classes of labor. Much more judgement and care is needed in disposing of the mechanic soas not to
entail hardship on the newcomer
and or, his brother worker here.
Even though he may have a job
waiting for him, the mechanic cannot be accommodated with a
home and many other little necessities immediately upon arrival the
same as a farm servant or domestic can, and the workman who
cannot provide the paltry sum of
$25 to guard against emergencies
must be destitute indeed, and
should be under the protection of
some organization, when, if suitable
he would not be denied admission.
As to the second point of objection, anyone with an eye to the
future well being of Canada will
have no difficulty of seeing and
recognizing the importance of the
regulation. England, in common
with other of the densely populated
countries has a large percentage of
undesirables, or wastrels, or whatever else you may call that class
of poor wretches who seem predestined by their own incapacity
to live and die within their miserable estate, and whilst, God knows,
we who are more fortunately situated, can pity them, yet it were
only shifting the burden, and turning them into wanderers, to* allow
the unprincipled agent and labor
jobber to depoit them into Canadp.
All who happen to be destitute are
not undesirable by any means, and
it is to meet these exceptions that
the superintendent is allowed to
pass such as stand a reasonable
chance of becoming self-supporting
and of bettering their condition.

Are YousCrazy?
Few indeed are the people in these days
of money madness who go to the theatre
to be instructed. What they seek is
amusement, a hearty laugh, a chance to
forget business cares and worries. To such
people and they are in the majority, no
show appeals as much as the comedy, and
the play the Clamans present this season,
"Are You Crazy?" is full bf laughs and
surprises, and entirely different from any
play they have produced heretofore. Don't

frightened at the approach of a
work train, and bolted down the
track. Mr. Watts was seen, by
observers at some distance, to be
standing on the load, endeavouring
to check the horses, when a sudden
jolt caused him to pitch forward.
When assistance arrived he was
found deadbeside the track, and a
subsequent surgical examination
showed that his heck had been
broken. Death must have been
instantaneous. _ Deceased was

While each issue of - Canada's foremost
sportsmen's magezice contains some feature
of special interest, the June number of
Rod and Gun in Canada, published by W.
J. Taylor, Woodstock, Ont.,1 is noted for
several of such features, each one of particular interest to all sportsman. 'Three
Weeks in the Forests of Quebec," with the
successful capture of a big moose, will
prove entrancing to all game hunters; while
the the story of the success of Jack Miner
in attracting wild geese in large number* to
a pond near his home cannot fail to hold
the attention and secure the interest of all
wild bird lovers. The latter story forms a
splendid illustration of the success of protection and should encourage all engaged
in the work. Mr. Miner has demonstrated
the fact that it is possible to succeed with
the' wary wild goose and success with such
means that efforts in other directions need
not spell failure. The importance of the
policy conservation justifies the illustrated
account of the gathering at Toronto Uui-
versity. This policy means more to future
of Canada than the present generation can
fully realize and to all interested in the
great out doors it is vital. A full supply
of stories appealing to all tastes is included in a number which will prove a fine

The Business of Vice
The crux of the Moral Reform situation
is the business of vice. Wherever any person desire to do wrong for his own gratification, others will provide the'facilities for
his indulgences and make money out of
the service rendered. When there are large
financial interests involved in any. reform,
it is much more difficult to carry than when
there is only desire of evil to reckon with.
Vice has nothing to say for itself, but vested interests find a voice, no matter how
base the source of jheir gain.
This element brings into the conflict a
large number of people who are not personally immoral, but whose gains are in some
way dependent upon immoral practises.
The influence of men personally virtuous,
when cast on the side of vice, is hard to overcome. And these men by their ability
and financial strength, are able to organize
opposition to reform movements which
would be beyond those who support evil
for its own sake.
1 he following are some of the consequences of the alliance between money and iniquity.
It leads to the propagation of evil practices. These men. be it remembered, provide the facilities for wrong doing. The
larger number of wrong-doers the more
customers they obtain. It is therefore in
their interests to cultivate these habits as
widely as possible.
Many are in the business of vice indignantly repudiate this. Liquor dealers often
contend that they never press anyone to
drink, but only serve those who wish entertainment in their line. But when they provide the facilities for drinking, surround it
with attraction, give free lunches, etc., they
do extend the drink habit.
As the late Principle Grant pointed out
so forcefully, it is as natural for a liquor
dealer to want to get on in the world as for
any qther man; yet he cannot lift a finger to
push his business without inducing more
men to drink. This is his only way of advancement and whether he does it directly
or indirectly makes no difference in the
So with other forms of th$ business of
vice. Recent confiscations of immoral literature revealed the fabulous prices that
men who deal in it get for their wares.
They take the risks because of the opportunities of gain. Many instances might be
given of men who hesitated not to currupt
the youth of the whole community because
of what they, might make out of supplying
the demand thus created.
The same thing is true wherever there is
money to be made out of the faults and
follies of men. Those financially interested propagate the evil habit that they may
extend their trade.
Another result of this unholy alliance is
the one above referred to, viz. organized
opposition to reform. The enimies to reform are not usually men who desire to do
wrong for their own gratification, but those
whose aim it is to make money out of other
peoples wrong-doing.
Examples are in order. The chief opposition to the passing of the Lord's Day Act.
by the Dominion Parliament did not come
from those who claimed liberty to violate
the Sabbath for their own enjoyment, but
from those transportation companies and
other bodies who want to make money out
of the Sabbath-breaking of the public.
Every comunity which tries to rid itself
of the burden of the bar-room finds that it
has to fight the organized liquor traffic. It
would be easy to deal with the drinking men
in their own district, if it were not that behind these are the local liquor dealers, who
have large interests at stake, and behind
these the larger organization with ample
financial resources and the best legal talent
at its command. The men who make money out of the drinking habits of the pub.
lie contest every inch of ground, and resort
to every technicality and every means conceivable to defeat the will of the people or
to prevent it from being expressed.
