Gity Council
Short Session - Routine Work.
The city council held a very
brief session last Monday, the
Mayor, Aid. Harvey, Leckie, and
Stirling being present. '
Tbe minutes of last meeting were
adopted, and , the following accounts referred to the finance
committee, to be paid if found

The question of watering Pen-
' dozi street came up for discussion,
By-law,No. 79 having been framed
for the levying of a special frontage
tax for the purpose on the same
lines as the one in operation for the
business part of the town.
It was suggested' that the season
was rather advanced for' the introduction, of., such a by-law.. An
objection was also raised that the
rate of three cents per foot frontage
which is paid by the business men*
was too high when applied . to
Pendozi street, as that, road was
very much narrower than: Main
street, and would.-;, consequently
take very much less' watering;   :
The mayor mentioned^ that the
present rate of three 'cents in the'
centre of the city would, produce
in the five months during which
watering was to^l^j^a^intted1 a;
'surplus of $50. This surplus might
be applied to the watering of
Pendozi street. '
The by-law eventually ^received
its first reading, the question.of the
rate being left over for-future consideration.
A motion was also carried that
By-laws Nb; 74, for the Raising of
$3000 to complete.the erection of
the public school, and No. 75, to
raise $5000 for the further extension of the water system, be
re-considered and finally passed.
These are the two money by-laws
which were recently voted, upon
and carried by the electors, . By-
\avf» No. 7 7, regulating. the speed
of automobiles, and No. 78; for the
raising of .a temporary loan, were
also finally passed.
. The meeting then' adjourned
until Monday, next, August 1st, at
10 a.m. ,
Provincial   Poultry  Associa-
~     ti(im to be Chrganized
A convention is to be held in
Vancouver on August 18th for the
purpose of organizing a "British
Columbia Poultry Association."
Stated in a few words, the chief
aim and object of the Association
is "Better Poultry, and more of it."
The field of work will engage 'every
poultry interest.' It will seek to
disseminate throughout the Province a thorough knowledge of the
latest and mostprogressive methods
of rearing and caring for domestic
fowls. Its particular mission will
be to secure a more widespread
interest in thoroughbred pbultry.
It is expected that the Provincial
Association will hold an Annual
Provincial Poultry Show.
The membership fee is fixed at
one dollar, and covers many privileges. Persons wishing to join
should commumicate with Mr. M.
A. Jull, Department of Argriculture
Victoria.        A
We regret to announce the death

body is to be taken to Neepawa,
Man., for interment, and ' service
will be held tomorrow morning at
Mr. Calder's house at 7:30, before
the boat leaves.
Jim Receives
Last Call
J. W. Wilks Drowned Whilst
Fishing on the Lake.
Poor old Jim I He has left Ke-
owna at last I For a long time we
tried hard to believe it was one of
his little jokes, and that we should
see him chuckling in the doorway
of hi? old curiosity, shop at the way
we had all been fooled. But it is
no good.    He is gone sure.:
He started off last Thursday
morning as he has started hundreds
of times, for a day's-fishing. Neil
Gregory helped him to push off his
boat. This was how the" rumor
started that Neil was with him at
the time of the accident. But Neil
stayed behind, and crossed to the
beach later with F. R. E. DeHart.
The" last seen of Jim Wilks was
in the • terrific wind storm which
sprang up about two or three
o'clock, in the afternoon. One of
the worst winds ever experienced
came down on the lake with scarcely any warning and lashed the
water into white waves, driving all
small craft before it. Jim was
noticed by several in his little boat
near the point at Manhattan beach
apparently making for land. Then
he seemed to turn but into the lake
again; sbme say to rec'overer a lost
bar or,|b;haul in his line.    .  7
He must Have been struck broadside on and thrown overboard; for
the next thing observed was -that-]
the boat Was empty eihd; Jim's hat
Iwas floating in the water.     A
/The ss. York put out,'at oncie for
the spot, but nothing could be seen
but the "empty boat, a hat and a
single oar. These were- taken to
shore, after a vain search for. .their
0\Vher. Jim was a string swimmer
and had the water been less rough
he might have, reached land all
right. But few could7have: held
but long with such a terrific gale
blowing. '■'
A search party went out in Hay-
man's Tut Tut; aivihouror so after
when the storm had subsided a
little, taking a grappling iron, to
drag th«s: spot,i bitt nothing was
^found save the lost oar, the . boat
cushion, and old box with some
fishing tackle. A
Up to the present the body lias
not been recovered and probably
never will be, owing to the tremendous depth of water in the lake. "
For six years Mr. Wilks has been a
familiar figure in the life of the town.
His musical talent, which was of no
ordinary kind, has figured at most
of the concerts and dances, and his
enthusiasm for sports of all kinds has
been behind many a holiday's enjoyment. 7
His chief hobby was fishing and
he wafr-mever so . happy as when
out in. his,.boat7or__ following- ths
creeks with his rod and line.
He was a liveryman and freeman
of the city of London, England, and
had held some good positions in the
Old Country. Of his family little
is known. It is understood that he
had a wife and two daughters in
New Zealand whom it was his intention to join at an early date.
His wife is being communicated
with as to the disposal of his affairs
which are at present in the hands
ofthe Forester's Lodge, of which
,body he was until recently financial

W. E. Scott Seeking Location
for Demonstration Orchards
Mr. W.E. Scott deputy minister
of agriculture, is making an extended tour of the province preliminary to the allotment of the government's various demonstration
orchards. The deputy minister will
traverse the Kamloops, Okanagan,
Kootenay, Columbia Valley, Boundary, Crfinbrook, Rossland, and
neighbor districts returning home
by way of the lower Mainland.
He does not expect to decide during . his travels the precise location of each demonstration orchard,
but rather to select the localities in
which these will be placed. Final
selections, will however, be -made
in ample time forr autumn planting
where such is desirable (as on the
lower Mainland and Vancouver
Island) and for spring planting
The latest report from the government, fruit commissioner, Mr. J.
C. Metcalfe, is as follows:
Edmonton, July 18—I saw strawberries here in McPherson Fruit
Company's warehouse, • from a
number of growers at Nelson fcnd
other points in .B. C. AU had arrived, in good condition, but were
running a little under size. "The
McPherson Fruit Co. reports Nelson
strawberries arriving in good condition this season to date, with one
or two exceptions; at the same time
stated season was nearly over.
Large shipments of raspberries
arrived here Sunday, the 10, and
to-day by express from B.C. Prices
are being well maintained and
selling retail $2.50 per case.
B. C. cherries arriving" in good
condition and in lesser quantities
at present.
Red Deer, July 12.—Agent here
reports all small fruits to present
date arriving in good condition.
Fruit dealers here report the same,
but complain of short supply; stated
they did not get 25 per cent, of
what they wanted to supply their
Raspberries coming in freely
now and in good condition This
point cfah handle a car load of
early mixed fruits, prunes, peaches,
apricots, crabs and early apples,
and later on car of fall and winter
apples and pears.
Express rate from Calgary to this
point, $1.30 per hundred pounds?
Local freight rate : apples,. 2 7 cts.;
mixed fruits, 37 cents. They have
a local freight refrigerator car service twice a week for fruit from
Calgary along this line..
Lacombe, July 13..—Agent at this
point reports all small fruits arriving
in excellent condition . to date.
Cherries and raspberries corning in
in fair quantities: now from B. C.
Dealers here report favorably of
all small fruits this season, but report supply of strawberries were
far short of the demand. This is
another point that can handle car
of early mixed fruits; and later car
of tall and winter apples and
pears. A branch line of the C.P.R.
runs out from here to Stettler and
other points, and creates a larger
demand for fruit at this point.
Ponoka, July 13.-^-Agent here reports all small fruits arriving in
good condition to date. Cherries
and raspberries are coming in
freely now from B. C. Fruit dealers at this point report strawberries
coming in excellent condition this
season, but short supply. Did not
get 50 per cent, of what they wanted tb meet'demand. Are looking
forward "to supply of B. C. large
fiuits. Report they were mu.ch
disappointed in Ontario fruits last
season. The following are prices
for American fruits. being quoted
by jobbers to retailers at points
along this line, July 13th:

Leduc, July 14.—Agent here reports small fruits arriving in good
condition this season to date.
Dealers report the same, tut .supply
far short of demand. Could not
obtain 50 p.c. of what was needed
of strawberries, either from jobbers
or growers in B. C. To ally these
points jobbers,, later on, run car up
line and distribute, plums, prunes
and other fruits, making it impossible to ship by express and compete with.' them.7 Prices are cut
very close, and retailers in many
cases sell very close on cost, using
it as an advertisement to draw trade
and making it impossible for strictly
fruit dealers to handle with much
profit.  i :•.:■. 7 ■.
Edmonton,   July   15.— Dealers
here report small fruits arriving
good condition this season to date,
with a few exceptions, but stated
it arrived in much better condition
than in former seasons. The supply
comes mainly from B.C., and obtain

Manager of Brown Fruit Company
here stated hq had just received a
wire from Pioneer Fruit Company,
Brandon, reporting three cars of
California peaches had arrived at
that point for\McPherdon Fruit Co.,
and was obliged' to buy car, of
California peaches to protect their
trade, as their competitors were
filling the markets with California
I think it absolutely necessary
that B. G. shippers should get
quotations into the hands of jobbers
at all points as quickly as possible
for the purpp-e of preventing in a
measure jobbers from buying and
Iba: ing retailers, and retailers'
consumers with American peaches.
I have seen quotations from California and Washington shippers to
jobbers here, quoting California
peaches 337 cents per case, f. o. b.
there. Washington 40 cents per
case. In asking the manager of
Brown .Fruit'Company here, if he
had -received any quotations from
B. C. shippers, he replied in the
negative; then, correcting himself,
said he had from one firm of shippers in B. C, but had thrown it Mn
the' waste-basket, as prices were so
high in comparison with American
quotations, he could not handle at
the prices quoted by this firm.
While in the office with him he 're'-.
ceived a wire of 150 cases of peach
plums being at Calgary, and the
fruit was from Spokane at $1. per
case; there, Calgary, of course. This
was not a legitimate quotation for
some reason or other, and he refused to buy or handle, as he had
just received a car of California
mixed fruits, and was long on
plums. . .   f?'.A
-I noticed the following in a paper
1 Sacramento, Cal., July 14. — The
largest shipment of fruit ever sent
from the Sacramerito Valley was
despatched yesterday, when 75
car loads of plums, pears and
peaches left for points in Canada
and eastern parts of United States.
There were nearly two million
pounds of fruits in cars. These
show the immense quantities of
different kinds of fruits, in a
measure, that are being shipped
into Canadian markets, by California shippers. There is danger of
their filling our markets to a great
extent before ours are ready for
shipment. The time for apricots
and peaches being shipped is so
near, that I repeat again : I think it'
important and necessary that shippers in B.C. should send quotations
and' close with jobbers and retailers for the sale of their peach
product. Jobbers state they have
asked for quotations from B. C.
shippers and have not received
any, with one or two exceptions.
It is to be feared they will not wait,
but close with American shippers
for their fruit. The following are
quotations from Wenatchee Valley^
which I saw here in jobbing houses
of two different dates:
Wenatchee, July 11 th.
Apricots per case $ .65
Peach plums    .75
Apples, large box ...,.   .90
' Peaches, Crawford, Triumph, Hales
.Early ....;	
Wenatchee, July 15th.
Apples, per large box .,	
Peaches, per box ....,:....
Apricots, per box	
Pears, Bartletts, per box .....,,
Pears, Flemish Beauty, per box......
Apples run from 4 to 4_r tier in a
box. Apricots and apples ready
now. Pears will be ready July
20th. Wenatchee Valley fruit is
some days earlier than Yakima.
Apricots do not seem to,be a heavy
crop as in the case of peaches, and
prices for cots wiil likely be firm
at 6'5c. f. o. b. there, but in the case
of peaches when the crop from
Yakima comes in, prices are likely
to rule low, but if markets are not
filled entirely by American fmit
from this point, markets later on
will probably stiffen and prices rise
agdin. Italian prunes have not
been quoted as yet, although reported a good crop. The report
that White & Crum, Lewiston,
Idaho, had bought out the Nash
interests in Canadian houses, is not
correct, but they have bought stock
in these houses for the purpose of
obtaining or gaining a preference
in the sale of their fruit products to
the Canadian houses. Large consignments of fruit, no doubt, will
reach these markets from Wenatchee and Yakima this season, and
these will prove the most disastrous
as7to the breaking of prices. Jobbers will suffer no loss, only by
way bf reduced commission.
To ■summarize, our : shippers
should use every endeavour to get
hold of these markets through
jobbers and retailers at once. Ship
the best fruit, well packed and in
good condition. Buyers will protect themselves against poor and
over rijpe fruit, or from any cause
whatever that will occasion loss
and if fruit of this kind is shipped,
it will be sacrificed no doubt. Perfect all your arrangements and
details in every way possible for
handling your fruit crop^ promptly
when ready.
Yours truly,  •

Kamloops to Okanagan
Railway Line.
The construction by the Canadian
Northern of a branch into' the Okanagan Valley, from a pbint on the
main line of the company at or, ii}
the vicinity of Kamloops, is indicr
ated by reports received fronrirj
It is declared that in all probability work on building this branch
will be started next year, and that
it is one of mariylines which Premier
McBride had in midd when atjhe
last session of the provincial legislature he prophesied for British Columbia great railway development,
on the heels of the construction of
the Canadian Northern. It is stated that an arrangement . has been
suggested between the city of Kamloops and the-Canadian Northern
by which construction of the branch
to Okanagan will be _ commenced
next year and pushed to completion. (i
A reconnaisance survey) of the
route proposed for the Okanagan
branch is reported" to have been
made by railway surveyors last year.
Generally the route will, it is said,"
follow the old stage route between
Kamloops and the Okanagan, traversing the Grand Prairie district,
Campbell creek and the upper Salmon River Valley. The construction of a railway through this
territory would open up an immense track of very valuable
agricultural land.
Rutland News.
(From our own corespondent.)
New York is suffering fiom a
terrible heat wave, which has already resulted in twenty - four
deaths and prostrations without
end. The public baths are continually crowded with thousands of
heat crazed people who seek this
means of relief.
The most conflicting statements
are appearing in the press with
respect to the crop on the prairies.
One day pessimistic writers will
declare that drought and storms
have ruined everything, and the
next mail will bring reports of fair
prospects and an average crop. '
The valley is not, after all, to be
favored with a visit frorn Sir Wilfrid
Laurier. The revised itenerary includes a meeting in Kamloops on
August 26th, whence the premier

The Lawn Social organized by
the Methodist Epworth League.and
held at the home of Mr. W. H.
Fleming, on Tuesday evening, was
a good success as per usual. The
young people certainly rally around
these social gatherings and enjoy
themselves. The evening ■ being
rather cool the ice cream was not
in very great demand ; in fact, one
boy was known to take two dishes
straight and then shiver for half an
hour afterwards. The 'hilarious
crowd who drove from Kelowna
under the guidance of Dr. Baker,
contributed greatly to the good
time judging from the sounds
floating across the valley. Staid and
reverend seniors were seen playing the old games, " Dropping the
handkerchief" etc. Tfie musical
programme was also appreciated,
Miss Dilworth of Victoria giving
two selections, Mrs. Dolsen- of Benvoulin, sang that good old favourite
"When you.and I /were young
Maggie." Rev Mr. Davidson of
Kelowna delivered a pleasing and
witty a _dress, while bur old trusties

A public -meeting was'held in '
the Hall Saturday last for the pur-'
pose of electing delegates to attend
the Irrigation Convention at Kamloops next week.   A good number
turned  out and some discussion
took place upon the' generally unsatisfactory    state   of   the > ivater
siQ>plv throughout the whole valley.
Mr. M. Hereron was voted to the
cfiajr, and explained the object of
thie. meeting.    He said that though
this was a good plaice ta live in,
there must be water and plenty of
it.    Men had paid arid were paying
fcyr water and not getting it, and he
thought   the' government" should
take  over the whole system, and
build dams and pipe lines so that
the farmer could have water just
when he needed it.   A good deal
of lively chat took place in reference to that amphibious animal the
water hog; as to the exact amount -
of water needed for fruit and vege-,
table growing;   and the man who
will persist in interfering with gates
and. ditches.     The  feeling of the
meeting was eventually put upon~
record when it Was moved by Mr.
C. H. Leathley, seconded  byj Mr.
Dalgleish, " That this meeting is of
the opinion   the   government   of
British  Columbia  should   assume
control of all water rights and systems in  the province, and that a
petition to that effect be circulated
throughought the district, and presented to the convention at Kamloops."      This  was unanimously
carried, and it was also decided to
send a delegate from the district,
and  to  call  a special meeting on
Saturday  the  30th in the Hall at
7.30 for the  purpose of electing

Entrance to Raymer s Building.
Dublin, June 20.—Ireland was the birthplace of the first great temperance movement when the Father Matthew crusade
was started more than a generation ago,
and today she has again the honor of giving the whole kingdom in the matter of
temperance. The " Catch my Pal " movement which began in Armagh less than a
year ago, has spread to England and Scotland and promises to have an effect there
quite as revolutionary as they had in Ire
land. '
Branches of the organization have just
been established in London, and the founder of the movement, the Rev. R. J. Patterson of Armagh, is in so great demand to
start fresh branches that it ia evident he
will soon have to give up his pastorate and
devote his whole time to the work.
The " Catch my Pal " organization which
now has 120,000 enrolled members in he-
land owes its origin to a most trivial incident. Mr. Paterson who is a Presbyterian
clergyman, had been lecturing on tempering his church in Armagh, but the lectures
were just part of his ordinary work, and
he had no idea that they, were to be the
starting point of a great wave of reform.
On July 13th 1909, he was going alohg the
street when he noticed six men lounging
about a lamppost. One of them came over
and spoke to him. " There are five men
your reverence," he said "that you ought to
get to sign' the pledge." The incident
struck Mr. Paterson as peculiar and he
crossed the street and had,a chat with the
men. The result of it was that they called
at his house latter in the day and expressed
their willingness to become total abstainers. .|
Mr. Patterson wa3 pleased, of course, but
he pointed out to the men that they could
get others to follow their example. "All
right" said one "I know a pal I can catch."
Another thought he also could "Catch a
Pal" and before they left th^y had promised
to bring in at least one "pal." The expression struck Mr. Patterson and he determined to adopt it as the label bf his movement, which from that day. spread with
amazing rapidity. The influence which it
made can be judged from statements made
at Lambeth Palace .London, the other day
at a conference of the'bishops of the Anglican church. The Right Rev. Dr. Crozier,
Bishop of Down Connor and Dromore said
he could name dozens of towns in the
north of Ireland were there had been no
petty sessions on account of the influence
of the "Catch my Pal" movement. One of
them is Armagh, and if is common knowledge that in the past the ecclesiastical capital of Ireland has not been notably free
from drunkenness and crime.
Anther remarkable feature of the new
crusade is the way in which it has brough
all religious denominations together. The
Roman Catholic priests are just as enthuias-
tic "Catch my Pallers" as their Protestant
confreres and constantly appear on the
same platform with them. The different
Protestant denominations seem to have
sunk all differences and instances are common now of Church of Ireland clergymen
taking the services in Presbyterian churches
and vise versa. Hundreds of publicans
have gone out of business and hundreds
more are thinking so and the Irish pawn-
brokeca are alio suffering in the diminution
in the volume of their trade.

Ont. The writer'and'a companion, despite the do)*ful predicaments of their friends
planned and carried a canoe trip along the
north shore of L*ke Superior and thoroughly enjoyed their holiday. They hugged the
shore carefully except on one occasion
when the temptation to make' a short cut
across a bay proved irresistable. At the
end of the experiment they shook' hands
and'promised each other not to do it again.

of several seasons in fire ranging, ia a moit

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.

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 t\\e
market, and at the end of the week, May 21st, there were but nineteen
lots 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

that after all. the problem might be

He told the academy of his discovery, and tbe result was that the offer

—    A Roman Dinner.	
A Roman dinner at the house of a
wealthy man consisted chiefly of three
courses. All sorts of stimulants to tho
appetite wer. first served up, and eggs
were Indispensable to tbe first course.
Among the various dishes we may instance the guinea beu, pheasant, night-
liigale aud tbe thrush as birds most in
repute. The (toman goriuauds held
peacocks In great est]marion, especially (heir tongues. Macroblus states that
they were first eaten by Hortcnsius,

that a single peacock was sold for 50
deuarll, the denarius beiug equal to
about elgbtpence halfpenny of English
money.—Chambers' Journal.

Chief Narcisse,
reserve near Salmon* Arm, was
fatally injured last week while
raking hay on the reserve with a
wild team. The team became unmanageable, and the old chief fell
off among the. teeth, and was
dragged a considerable distance
before the team could be stopped.
He was taken to Kamloops hospital,
but died the next day.
J9TA farmer's hospitality to a tramp
resulted in a bush fire which originated, on Mr. A. C. Kennedy's
ranch near{Penticton and for sev-

reserve. A hobo came to Mr.
Kennedy's farm house and requested refreshments. Mir. Kennedy
gave him an entire outfit for dinner
and the tramp built a fire in a
ravine some distance away. He
neglected to extinguish the fire and
a wind arising rapidly fanned it
into a blaze. The flames ate up
several rods .of fencing and spread
through Mr. Kennedy's ranch to.

there is a splendid groSvth of
