The council  meeting held  last
Monday evening should have commenced at 8 o'clock, but contrary
to his usual custom, and for perhaps the first time this year, Mayor
.Sutherland was late,    He put in an
appearance at ten minutes to nine,
explaining  apologetically that  he
had been launching his new boat,
,which  interesting   operation   had
taken longer than he had expected.
Aid. Jones and Stirling were then
the only absentees. "
The minutes of last meeting were
read and confiimed, and the following accounts referred to the finance
committee,  to  be  paid  if   found

Byl-aw No.'80, which is to fix the
rate of taxation for the year, came
up for ita third reading. Mayor
Sutherland suggested that'it might
be advisable to add another half
rriill.
,, The 23 milk mentioned in the
■ by-law had been based upon a
rough assessment of $1,150,000.
The roll when completed had
shown an assessment of $1,114,738,
and this had been further reduced
by subsequent" correction of errors
to $1,112,088. This would mean
a drop of about $726 in the revenue
figured on. This would make
sailing too close to the wind, and
to be on the safe aide it would be
better to put an extra half mill on
the tax for general purposes, making
it 6$ mills. This would still leave
it less than half last year's figure
which was 13jfc.
The aldermen agreed that it
would be safer to put on another
half mill, and the by-law was read
a third time with the addition made.
This will make the total taxation for
the year 23$ mills.
Aid. Cox brought up the question
" of weed-cutting on vacant lots,
making special mention ofthe lots
. east of Aid. Leckip's house. He
said that something should be done
to have these lots cleared up before
the regatta. Hundreds of people
would be here this week for that
occasion, and it would look extremely bad to have these lots in
their present condition in the main
street.
Mr. Dunn said the owner had
been notified, but nothing had yet
been done.
It was agreed to send a man in
to cut the weeds at once, and
charge the cost to the owner.
Aid. Cox also mentioned that the
fire     brigade    boys   were    ask-
. ing to have city water installed  in
the fire hall.   They had at present
no water to nse except by going to
someone else's tap.
The mayor agreed that it would
be as well to have a tap put in. It
might also be useful in case of fire
there.
A motion was accordingly put
through that water be installed in
the fire hall.
Aid. Harvey, in reply to a question from the mayor as to his visit
as delegate to the Irrigation Convention at Kamloops, said that
amongst other things a resolution
had been put through asking the
government of B. C. to pass an act
allowing corporations to take over
individual water ) ecords to be
merged into one whole untakjng.
For instance the city of Kelowna
could take over the irrigation water
supply and work it as a whole for
the benefit of the city. They had
also agreed to ask the government
to assist the municipalies to put in
storage reservoirs, and other works
where there was no money available to do it. Premier McBride
had promised that the resolutipns
should have every attention.
Mr. Dunn mentioned that it had
been necessary to raise a loan
during the week to cover an over
draft at the bank. A motion was
passed: " That the action of the
mayor and treasurer in borrowing
$1000 in accordance with By-law
No. 78, be hereby approved and
confirmed.".
The ^ following motion was also
passed: " That the mayor and
treasurer be authorized to borrow
from the Bank of Montreal the sum
trffl 000;- ^nfotmrani'' oh ?water
works account."'
The city clerk mentioned that
the tags had arrived, and asked if
it would not be as veil to place an
adverstisemeht in the paper to the
effect that dog licenses were due
on July I st last, and that they must
be paid, before a certain date or
or dogs would be impounded. He
said this system had a greater effect in getting licenses paid than
even the visits of the; policeman.
A motion was then passed that
the meeting be adjourned until
Monday evening next at 8 p.m.
Fruit Market Firmer.
The following telegram has been
forwarded to us from the Dept. of
Agriculture, and dated Aug. 10th:
"Metcalf, fruit commissioner, Win-
nineg,.wire as^follows:-Prices .for
all decidious fruits are firmer-quotations to jobbers higher for peaches, plums, and prunes. Chicago
and eastern ~ markets are higher
owing to increased demand for
Pacific Coast' fruits. Private reports
to jobbers state that Ontario crop
below medium, small, and poor
quality. ■ W. E. Scott.
Three Stores Go
Up In Big Blaze.
Fire-Brigade   Again   Cleverly
Check Threatening Flames.
The city was startled in the early
hours of Tuesday morning by the
wierd sounds of the new fire siren.
Fire had broken out in the _ ice
cream and confectione .ry store in
Bernard avenue, run by E. J.
Pettigrew, and before the brigade
could arrive on, the scene, which
they did in remarkably quick time,
as soon as the alarm was given, had
gained a firm hold of the building.
The first alarm was given by the
ss. York, which was moored in such
a position that they could see the
smoke and flames in the distance.
Then the power house took up the
alarm. The brigade boys were'on
the spot before the siren had sloped, and soon had several streams
of water directed on to the blaze.
A few minutes after their arrival
the whole building, including C. C.
Josselyn's grocery store, Pettigrew's
candy store, and Mrs. Tutcher's
millinery parlor, was ablaze. There
had been time, however, to save
quite a quantity of Mrs. Tutcher's
stock, which was taken across the
road into the Kellar block.
Adjoining on the west is the
large two-storey, frame block belonging to Mr. W. Blackwood, and
it was only the. splendid and
effective work of the .fire brigade
which saved this building from
being destroyed. Indeed, from
beginning to end the fire was
handled in the most masterly
fashion, and expressions of approval and admiration of the work
pf the fire' boys arid' their; helpers
were heard ori every side.
1 On the east side the high cemen,t
block wall of the furniture store
formed an effective barrier to the
progress of the flames-in that
direction, Fortunately there was
no wind blowing at.the' time and
the stillness of the air rendered the
situation less dangerous.
For some' time the fire burned
fiercely and seemed to resist all
efforts to subdue it; but gradually
the three powerful jets from the
mains and the smaller jets from
behind the furniture and hardware
stores, began to tell, and after some
half hour's strenuous fighting all
danger was past.
Mr. Josselyn's store suffered least
and some of the stock.and fixtures
escaped damage except by water.
The,owners of all three stores are
partly covered by insurance, and
the appraiser was due in. town Friday to adjust claims.

Summerland people are taking
steps toward the establishment of
a high school.
An attempt to solve the labor
problem has been made by the
municipality of Summerland, who
have opened a labor exchange at
their offices on the Flat.
Dr. Gaddes returned on Tuesday
from Calgary, bringing with him a
gang of labourers to< work on the
irrigation ditch. 7
V '
The heavy rain of last week has
had the effect of putting out most
of the bush fires which have been
doing so much damage in the
neighborhood.
Mr. W. Blackwood and the occupants of his building are deeply
sensible of their obligation to the
fire brigade for the saving of their
property. They were all high in
their praises of the workmanlike way in which the
boys went about their work,
and their energy ia saving a difficult
situation. Mr. Tom Morrison, of
the Oak Hall clothing store, has
handed a cheque for $100 to the
brigade, and Mr. Blackwood one
for $50, in some acknowledgement
of their work."
L McMillan, son of Mr. D. McMillan, arrived from Vancouver
last Tuesday.
Jas. Patterson and his sister, Miss
Rosa Patterson, returned this week
from Vancouver after a few month's
stay.
Mr. and Mrs. Eastman are visitors
in town this week.
The Union Picnic next Thursday
is to be held in the Park instead of
the polo grounds as previously arranged.
Still another picnic coming to
Kelowna! This time it is the Penticton people who are arranging a
big excursion here, to take place
in about two weeks' time.
Mrs; Alex Cowan, Benvoulin,
will not receive again /this season
until further notice.
In nothing is the progress and
prosperity of the city of Kelowna
more strikingly reflected than in
the growth and advance of the
annual regatta. From very humble
beginnings it has developed into
one of the chief events in the
valley, and the time is not far distant when lovers of water sports in
all parts of the province will be
attracted to our pretty lakeside
town by this annual event.
The management of' affairs has
this year been entirely in the hands
of the Aquatic Association, and a
good deal of money has been expended by them in perfecting
arrangements. The fine new grand
stand erected at a cost of $ 1,500,
has, added greatly to the convenience arid comfort of the
spectators, and in many other ways
improvements have been made
which would probably not have
been the case had a public committee had the control as in previous
years. .
The weather was ideal on Wednesday^ the opening day, and,
except for the sailing races which
had to be postponed owing to lack
of wind,'the programme was carried through without a hitch.
On Wednesday noon the Aberdeen arrived with a party of nearly
400 people from Armstrong who
were holding their Sunday school
eiicursion. Owing to difficulties^ in
making arrangements with the C.
P. R., a great many,Vernon people
who were anxious to come dpwn
Wednesday, were unable to make
the trip. All accommodation on
the Aberdeen had beenAooked in
advance, by the Armstrong people.
. The Vemon Band were in attendance the first day, being conveyed down the lake on the
Clovelly.   -
In'the. evening a dance was held
in the Aquatic building.
On Thursday the Okanagan'
brought in a large crowd from
down'the lake points, and the
hotels and restaurants were taxed
to their utmost.
ThW weather was again fine, but
in'■' th^ /afternoon a stiff breeze
sprang; which interfered somewhat
with.the,arrangement of some.of
the events.
In the evening the prizes were
presented by the president of the
Aquatic Association, Mr. G. C. Rose,
af_e_"_whi_c__ a dance.and fire-works
ended the proceedings.
The following is a list of events
with the results:
WEDNESDAY.
1. Open Sailing Handicap. This,
as before stated, had to be postponed to await a more favorable
breeze. The event was eventually
pulled off on Thursday, when the
"Bird" owned by L. C. Aviss, beat
"Onawav," owned by Agur, of
Summerland, by five minutes.
2. Single Sculls, quarter mile.
There were four entries in each of
the three heats, the first heat being
won by R, V. Agur, of Summer-
land; second by W. Dennison;
third by C. Parish. The final was
left until the second day.
3. 120 yards Open Swimming.

R. Mathie; third heat, F. Budden
and P. Dunn. Final'to be rowed
Thursday. v
5. Open Gasoline Launch. This
race attracted considerable interest,
eight launches being entered. Some
time was spent in getting lined up,
but at last all were ready and the
gun gave the signal to start. Martin's
launch " Wascan," was the first to
get away, with Miss Martin at the
wheel. A. J. Jones' red boat, the
" Ripj" was left behind for some
trouble with the engine. Put when
it did go, it did go 1 It wds'amusing
to see how rapidly it came up with
and passed the others, finishing
the whole course when the rest
were little more than half way
round. The winners of the various
classes were: over 25ft, A. E.
Rae in the " Dart" ; 25 ft. and
under, A. J. Jones in the " Rip " ;
under 20 ft., H. Leckie-Ewing.
6. Ladies' Sailing Cup. This,
too, had to be postponed from lack
of wind. On Thursday three boats
entered, the "Bird" (Aviss) ■ being
left winner by the other two,
McNair and Sweeny dropping out.
7. 60 yards Boys' Swimming,
15 years and under: 1st, Albert
Raymer; 2nd, Gordon White.
8. 60 yards Breast Stroke Swimming. The result was a dead heat
between J. F. Burne and A.
Edwards for first place, and F. W.
Zerenner being third. Seven
entries.
9. Ladies* Double Sculls: 1st,
Miss Maude Raymer and Miss Rose
Raymer: 2nd, Miss Shayler and

13,and under. Eight entered, 1st
Ian Weddell, 2nd G. Silke, 3rd W.

■tJijjS;.race. Wni~NuttaI,.of Naramata.
came in first way ahead of the others
E. M. Bloomfield, 2nd with J. Ble-
witt. of Summerland a close 3rd.
13 The Aquatic Derby, in fancy
costurne, provided some good fun.
Three pairs entered, Meugens and
Wilgress as Jack Tars; finishing
first, and J; Wilson and Zereririer
second, W. E. Hunter and another
bringing up the rear. The object was to turn over the boat,
and ride astride the keel, no easy
matter, judging by their frantic efforts to retain their position.
14. The Open Dive was a popular event, attracting ten competitors
The first, prize went to G. A.
Batchelor, for some very neat work.
J. F. Burne and A. M. Beecher tied
for second place, and in repeating
Beacher was placed second^ Burne
third, A. Errington being being
awarded fourth.
15. Mixed Canoe Race. Five
entries, I st, Miss K. Bloomfield and
J.Blewitt; 2nd, E. L Bloomfield
and Miss Bloomfield; -3rd, -Miss
Gladys Robinson and Mr. Nuttal.
Special Matched Canoe Race
between Manhattan Beach, the
Harvey family, and the. Bank of
Montreal. The campers made an
easy win. Harveys and the Bank
were together within a few feet of
the finishing line, but the money
changers put a spurt on and won
second.
! 7. Mixed Double Sculls. There
were three entries in the first heat,
Miss Shayler and W. Hill being
I st, with Miss Raymer and T. Hill
2nd. The second heat was not
rowed as only one lady presented
herself, and Miss Weddell and H.
E. Dixon took their place for the
final without a race.
16. The tilting was another
mirth provoking featute, the three
bold knights, F. Budden, F. R.
Wilgress and J. Wilson, with their
squires at the paddle, W. Budden,
L. C. Aviss and W. E. Hunter respectively, met in combat, armed
with death-dealing lances carefully
padded at the business end.
Wilgress and Budden, met first,
there was a clash of steel, or rather,
wood, and Budden rolled into the
waves. Two charges without result, and then Budden's canoe was
turned completely over. Then J.
Wilson came into the lists. His
first charge was airried at Wilgress*
canoe, but this was against the rule
and disallowed. A desperate combat ensued ending with Wilson
being awarded first place, and Wilgress second. "''.-.

Irrigation Men
In Conference,
Many Important Resolutions
Submitted to Government.
The fourth annual Western
Canada Irrigation Convention held
at Kamloops last week was the
most successful yet held, a record
number of delegates being present,
representing all parts of the province, besides many visitors. A
large contingent went from Kelowna district, including Dr. C. W.
Dicksori, Mr. T. G. Speers, Aid.
Chas. Harvey, Dr. Baker, Messis.
A. Patterson, A. R. Muirhead, M.
Hereron, A. W. Dalgleish, H.  W.
E. Canovan, W. E. Adama, W. R.
Pooley, E. M. Carmichael, P. Smith,
F. A. Kelly, J. O. Marty and E: M.
Carruthers.
The convention lasted three days,
commencing Wednesday morning.
The morning of the first day and
part of the afternoon was taken up
with the welcoming of the delegates
by the mayor and the formation of
committees. Dr. Dickson, of Kelowna, was appointed to serve on
the committee having charge of the
resolutions.
A petition was presented from A
the fruit growers and ranchers of; '
Kelowna district, as follows •  ;     7;7:;
"We,    the    undersigned    frriit-A
growers and ranchers of the ■ Kel-A
owna district respectfully desire to A
express   to   this   convention   ourA
strong disapproval of the  existing-
state of affairs in the way of water
rights and water distribution within ;
the  province.     As  a   permanent 7
remedy to this we would  ask.'theA
government of British C61umbia\Sq7
assume control  of all Water arid .7
wqiasr sj^etvq^ within .'.the- '■pro'viriji'e^^a?!^
io institute an energetic pblicy7qi.'-''AAfi

now going to waste may. be  held
in reserve for use when .most reA
quired, and to so: anierid the laws
relating to the distribution of same
as will give adequate protection to
all flumes, ditches  and  gates. ,s6:
that, the same shall not be interfered  with except  by the person in:
authority." 7i
This petition was referred back*
to the Kelowna delegates to put in'
to the forrii of a resolution.
The first speaker was  Prernier
McBri-'e in which he said that the
government was heartily in syriiA
pathy   with   the    objects;   of   the /
Association.    The question of Sid-
justing the water rights was a nonA
political   one,  and he hoped the '■-
people of fit. C. were  big enough
and    broad-minded    enough    to
accept council  and   advice   from
whatever source it might come, so
long as it made for the progress '
and- -prosperity ^of-irrigated zone.-
Mr. F. J. Fulton, K.C., delivered
an interesting address in which
he sketched the history of the
water question in British Columbia
and problems and difficulties which '
had arisen therewith. '
Other papers and addresses were
given by Jas. White, on "Conservation," the Hon. Duncan Marshall,
of Alberta; Martin Burrell, M. P.;
and Mr. A. E. Meighan, of the,
Fruitlands Irrigation system.
On Thursday morning Mr/A. E;7
Ashcroft gave a paper on " Irrigation in the Okanagan and Thompson   Valleys,"    after   which    the
resolutions were submitted.   v
Resolutions I and IA dealt with
the    amalgamation    of    separate'/
water records   into   one   general ,
project when necessary for water-,'
ing   large   areas,   and   with    the
difficulty existing between the Dominion and Provincial governments
over water records in railway belt.

Some Things Recently Said.
From the president's address at the W.
B. T. U. convention in New Westminster,
by Mrs. C. Spofford:
"We record with true thankfulness to
the great leader of the temperacne forces,
the increase of 'no license' area in all the
provinces of the Dominion. From Nova
Scotia, that historical land of songvand story
whose recently enacted prohibition bill
places the whole province except two
counties under prohibition : PrinceEdward
Island under total prohibition: New Brunswick increasing its 'no license' area: Quebec with 664 of its 1006 municipalities:
Ontario with about 434 'no license' as
against 472 license municpalities: Manitoba
and the prairie provinces, slowly adding
to their 'dry territory,' covers the 4,000
miles of territory until we reach this western province where, in the new drastic
Liquor License Act on the municipal bylaws which aim at better control, a reduction in the number of licenses, shorter hours
higher license fees, greater restriction and
more rigid enforcement may be enjoyed,
recognized the handwriting on the wall.
" Before.the onward and triumphant
march of truth, what error can possibly stand
what will stay its course? The legislation
of the drink traffic will be abolished, the
full emanipation of woman will be accomplished;- the standard of 'a white life
for two,' will be established; and for the
coming toddling feet the way will be made
safe, because the civilization of the future
will cer.tainly demand these things. And
for the accomplishment of all this, the
motherhood of the W. C. T. C. under its
banner 'For God, for Home and Native
Land,' have been and are now working and praying
Joseph Chamberlain, the great English
stateman, says of whisky :
" 'If there is in the whole of this business
any single encouraging feature, it is found
in the gathering impatience of the people
at the burden which they are bound to bear,
and their growing indignation and sense of
shame and disgrace with this imposes upon them. The fiery serpent of drink is
destroying our people, and now they are
awaiting with longing eyes the uplifting of
the remedy."
Sir Andrew Clark, the great London
physician.
" 'I am speaking solemnly and carefully
in the presence of truth, and 1 tell you that
I am considerably within the mark when I
say to you that, going the round of my
hospital wards today, seven out of ten
owed their ill health to alcohol."
The late Edward Everett Hale:
" 'If anyone will take charge of all Boston's poverty and crime which results from
drunkenness, the South Congregational
Church, of which I have the honor to be
minister, will alone take charge of all the
rest of the poverty which needs relief
the city of Boston."

Be sure and take a bottle of Chamber-
Iain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy
with you when starting on your trip this
summer. It cannot be obtained on board
the trains or steamers. Changes of water
and climate often cause sudden attacks of
i diarrhoea,   and it is best to  be   prepared.

The new restaurant on Water

in good hands. Mr. Coldman,
book-keeper with the Central
Okanagan Land Co., has taken over
the place and is determined to
make good. The whole thing is
being re-modelled, and no effort
spared to provide a clean, well
cooked and well served meal at a
reasonable rate. Mrs. Coldman has
a reputation of being a first-rate

great convenience, especially to the

Speaking at Kamloops last week
Premier McBride said that he had
been in conference with D. D.
Mann, vice-president of the Canadian Northern Railway, and that
overtures were made by Mr. Mann
looking to the further extension of
the con.pany's lines in this province
both on the island and the mainland.
The company," said the
premier, " will build branches into
the Okanagan and the Kootenay.
The question of the granting of aid
to the building of the branches and
extensions will in all likelihood be
dealt with at the next legislature.
The people of Kamloops need
have no anxiety as to the building
of the branch in which they are
particularly interested. The Okanagan branch will be one of the
most important feeders of the system and will be the first considered
by the company."
Later, in addressing the council,
Premier McBride said : '" I am in a
position to state positively that the
Canadian Northern Company intend to commence construction
both east and west from Kamloops
and that within a few months work
will begin on the. Okanagan
branch."

You will have to act quickly if you wish to secure a lot in this desirable
sub-division, for it is selling rapidly.   The  location  is  ideal,  half-a-mile
from  the  town  limits and  one  hundred  feet higher,  commanding a
beautiful view of the Lake, City, and surrounding country.
The soil is a light loam, with slope sufficient for irrigation and drainage.
Unimproved land, as desirably situated as ours, is selling  readily  in  the
fruit sections of Washington and Oregon  for  from $650  to  $1200  per .-
acre.   Conditions are changing here;  before you realize it, this land will
have doubled in price.
NOW IS THE TIME TO PURCHASE.
We-advise you to inspect the property at once, and make your selection.
It is going fast. The property has been little more than a week on the
market, and at the end of the week, May 21 st, there were . but nineteen
. jolts remaining unsold. Our town is rapidly growing, and it will not be
long before this property will be practically a part of it, and we feel safe
in saying, the choice residential section.
We might also state that it is the Company's plan to reserve the adjoining
1,000 acres, to be improved and planted out in  one  large  orchard  and
retained for itself.

THERE  IS  A  REASON
and a good one—and a good many good ones—why the automobile
is rapidly gaining in popularity with the farming portion of the community. It fits in with the needs of the rural life in a wonderful way.
It is quick, cheap, and untiring. Unlike the team, no matter how
hard the motor has been worked during the day, it is always ready
for a flying visit to town, to church, or meeting.
WHAT DO THESE FIGURES MEAN ?
"Out of 10,000 autos in Iowa, 5,000 are owned by farmers.
Kansas farmers spent $3,200,000 for automobiles during 1909, and
$2,750,000 in 1908. In one Nebraska town of 800 population, forty
autos were sold last year to farmers and retired farmers."
They  mean  that the Automobile meets the

W. F. BOUVETTE & SON,
PROPRIETORS,
Rear of Elliott s.
Resolution No. 2 was moved by
Dr. Dickson, of Kelowna, seconded
by Mr. J. Kelvie, of Vernon. It
read as follows:. •
"Whereas the existing conditions
of ownership and control of irriga
tion systems in British Columbia
are very unsatisfactory resulting in
waste of water and inadequate distributing system;
"And whereas certain districts
have not the necessary capital to
instal irrigation systems, thus leaving large areas of good land useless
because of insufficient water supply;
"Be it resolved that it is the opinion of this convention that the Government of British Columbia should
take steps looking toward the introduction of a systemof Governmental
ownership, conservation and operation of water systems for irrigation
in Dry. Belt, to ensure a fair and
equitable distribution according to
the Water Act."
After a few preliminary remarks
Dr. Dickson said that there were
two very vital points connected
with the unsatisfactory existing conditions of ownership and control
of the irrigation systems in the province and those were, first, friction
that existed between the Owners of
land and water, and secondly, the
waste of water. The only solution
for the difficulty was the introduction of a system of government
ownership, conservation arid operation of the water system to ensure
a fair and equitable distribution.
With a proper system of .bottling
back and storing the water, sufficient could be obtained fpr everyone's needs. The question was the
best way of conserving the 'water,
private interests could not tackle
operations of such magnitude, and
it was up to the government to
handle them.
Mr. J. McKelvie, of Vernon, seconded the resolution. He regretted the absence of Mr. Price Ellison, minister of public lands, who
strongly advocated government
ownership and control at the convention of '08_ He said' that the
province would have a revenue of
some eight millions in a year or
two and he didn't see why there
should not be an appropriation of
two or three millions made for the
purpose of grappling with this all
important and necessary work.
Mr. Kennedy suggested a committee being appointed to confer
with the'government and named
Messrs. Fulton. Ricardo and Agur
Mr. Pooley. pf Kelowna, advocated government control as distinguished from ownership, the latter
militating against private enterprise
and being socialistic to a degree. .
Mr R. M. Palmer,-of Kamloops,
said that government ownership
would mean the abrogation of existing rights and should not be supported by this convention.
V. D. Curry eilso spoke against
the resolution. Private enterprises
would be crippled. He also advocated a board of control and com-
plainedthat the water commissioners had only, sat on one case which
was not finished yet. He wanted
the commissioners to sit continuously and settle all disputes.
Mr. Harvey, of Ketowna, did not
think that government ownership
would interfere with private interests, neither did he think that socialism or politics entered into the
question at all.
C. E. Lawrence, Kamloops, said
that the provincial government was
the largest real estate agent and
owner and was suffering from the
want of the proper distribution of
water systems. If they were tq 'take
up the question it would result in

A recent thunderstorm struck a
tall tree to the south of Naramata
close to where several family tents
•are pitched ; the trunk cc-mmenced
to blaze about 12 feet from the top,
falling branches also burning all
around. After burning for nine
hours the, top fell, and the burning
limbs were extinguished, much, to
the relief of the people living in the
vicinity. The tree continued to
smoulder for three days^.
Naramata Athletic Club have
purchased a racing canoe from
Jack Blewitt, of Summerland.
Penticton council, it is understood, have engaged detectives to
put a stop to the fruit thieving
which has been taking place since
the commencement of the fruit
season.
A funeral service, attended by
almost the entire crew of the ss.
Okanagan, was held in Penticton
last week in connection with the
death of Edwin Quant.
Summerland is up against the
fruit picking problem this week in
dead earnest, and blessed is the
man who has a houseful of children
to keep his grey hairs from going
down in sudden flight to the grave.
A big crop undoubtedly has its distractions as well as its attractions.
—Sum. Review.
Mr. Martin Burrell, M.P., said
that if this resolution meant that the
government might step in in certain
cases and give a helping hand he
was in favor of it, but not if it was
intended that the government
should shoulder the burden of expense for the benefit of private interests at the public's expence.
Mr. Burrell moved that the
resolution be referred back to the
committee for amalgation with No.
9, which asked that the government
should lend assistance to irrigation
projects on the same lines as they
render aid to railway companies.
When the motion came up later
in its altered form it was carried
unanimously as follows:
" Whereas, certain existing conditions of ownership and control
of   irrigating   systems   in . British
Columbia are far from satisfactory
in  some  portions  of the country,
resulting  frequently  in"' waste   of
water and inadequate distribution,
and whereas certain districts have
not the necessary capital to instal
irrigation   systems,    thus   leaving
large areas of good land useless
because of insufficient water supply;
be it resolved by this convention
that the   government   of   British
Columbia be asked to take steps
towards  ensuring the better conservation-and control of sources of
supply in those districts in which
governmental" action would clearly
make for a fuljer supply  of water
and its more equitable distribution-;
and further that the government be
asked to assist by guaranteeing the
bonds of  municipalities   or  companies in those    districts,  where
otherwise large tracts of land must
remain unproductive   for lack of
adequate irrigation systems."
Other resolutions dealing with
various phases of the water question were passed, also one endorsing the project of the Canadian
National Show to be held at Vancouver, commencing Oct. 31 st.
A'iantern iecture of more than
ordinary interest was given on
Thursday evening by Professor
Etcheverey of the University of
California, on " Modern Irrigation
Systems."
Friday morning a steam boat trip
was made the Fruitlands irrigation
works, the convention assembling
again in the afternoon, when lurther
papers w.ere read. The officers
were also elected for next year and
Calgary decided upon as the point
at which the next convention would
be held.

Dysentery is a dangerous disease but can
be cured. Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy haa been successfully used in nine epidemics of dysentery.
It has never been known to fail. It is
equally valuable for children and adults,
and when reduced with water and sweetened, it is pleasant to take. Sold by all
druggists.
When the digestion is all right, t e action of the bowels regular, there is a
natural craving and relish for food. When
this is lacking you mav know that you need
a dose of Chamberlain's Stomach and
Liver Tablets. They strengthen the
digestive organs, improve the appetite and
regulate the bowels.   Sold by all druggists.

All work absolutely guaranteed
luck seemed to follow them. On
approaching the starting point the
Kelowna crew got into rough water
and in attempting to turn the canoe capsized. As there was no
time left to get into shape again
the race had to be called off. After
many futile attempts to arrange a
a race later in the evening, and
next morning the race was finally
abandoned.
