Board of Trade
Bureau of Information in Town
A meeting bf the Board of Trade
was held Wednesday evening.
The principal business was the
considering of ways and means of
inducing the University Site Commission to investigate the advantages of Kelowna as a location for
the proposed B. C. University, and
of bringing before their notice the
generous otter of Mr. Rembler
Paul of 125 acres of land situated
north of the town. For this purpose a deputation, consisting of
Mr. Paul, Mr. D. W. Sutherland and
Dr. Boyce, were appointed to appear before the commission at their
sitting on Saturday next at Vernon,
to present plans and description of
the site and to induce them if possible to pay a visit to. Kelowna to
make a personal-inspection of the
A .motion to co-operate with
other boards of trade on the lake

Okanagan district as a whole was
Mr. Pitcairn introduced Jthe
question of " night lettergrams,"
which the G. P. R. had recently introduced into their telegraph system. He pointed out that Kelowna
was debarred from this privilege
owing to the fact that the C. P. R.
telegraph system did nob extend.to

Transfer of Lake View and
Royal Licenses
Rutland News.
(From our own correspondent.)
Black Mountain School.
A meeting of the license commissioners was held yesterday
morning in the council chamber,
the mayor and Commissioners
Boyce and Jones being present.
The minutes of the last meeting
having been read, Mr. R. B. Kerr
announced that he appeared on
behalf of two applications for transfer of license. The first was ior
the transfer of the license of the
Lakeview Hotel from Jas. Bowes to
Frank S. Coates. Mr. Kerr presented files of the papers to show
that the regulations as to advertising, had been complied with.
Without further discussion the
chairman announced that the commissioners would allow the transfer.
The other application was that
respecting the transfer of the Royal
Hotel license from J. E. Wheeler to
Lavigne and Dunk. In presenting
the application, Mr. Kerr said that
this particnlar case had often been
brought before the commissioners.
The conditions, however, at the
present time were hot quite the'
same as oh previous occasions.
The grievance, for instance, of Mr.
Jas. Bowes, would not apply in the
present case, as the Lake View
.Hotel had passed out of his hands,
 .„.,... _w „ „  „ £nd the new proprietor had pur-
jiir^&Vli^ . with. a full Jcnowledge of
The account of $2,500 due the
Canadian Fairbanks Co, for reinstalling the plant of the power
house, which had been hanging
fire for a considerable time came
up again for discussion, and it was
decided that it be paid, less a deduction of $70.65 for certain apparatus which had been returned.
Money had already . been voted
for the purpose of meeting the
, The following motion was passed
" That the Mayor and Treasurer be
authorized to borrow from the
Bank of Montreal the sum of $2,-
500 to pay balance due on power
house machinery."
Mr. S. T; Elliott waited on the
council again with a plan of his
sub-division near the creek. The
matter in discussion was the pon-
struction of .certain streets, but it
was found necessary to consult
with other interested parties, and
the plan was laid on the table to
be taken up at next meeting.
It was mentioned that a temporary constable had been appointed
in the person of Ian McRae, who
would fill Golightly's place until a
permanent selection had been
made. '
On the motion of Aid. Leckie,
seconded by Aid. Harvey, the
following motion was put through t
" That the Mayor and Treasurer be
authorized to borrow $6000 from
the Bank of Montreal, being the
amount due,on the Waterworks

until Monday next; June 13th.
on the C. P. R., was by means of
a government wire, and the company had refused to take messages
over the phone to be forwarded as
night lettergrams from thai point.
Mr. McTavish suggested that the
C. P. R. might be induced to extend
their telegraph system down here,
which would be a great advantage
to handlers and shippers of freight
in tracing cars, etc. Other members
spoke to the same effect.
On the motion of Mr. Pitcairn
it was resolved to write the Dominion" Telegraph Superintendent of
the C. P. R.,, asking if the system
of night lettergrams could not be
extended to Kelowna, as it would
no doubt lead to increased busines.
Mr. Pitcairn also referred to the
building of fruit packinghouses at
Vernon and Summerland and felt
that similar facilities should be
afforded to Kelowna. A motion
was accordingly put through that
tHe C. P. R. be asked to do so.
Mr. DuMoulin spoke on the advisability of of the Board of Trade
having an office inJown, and a live
man in charge who could take
visitors round and show the advantages of the district. At present
visitors were left largely to their
own resources, and frequently left
the town without seeing any of its
Mr. Pooley supported the idea,
pointing out that although Kelowna
was one of the best advertised of
towns, yet it lacked any system of
following up its advertising results.
It was resolved that the publicity
committee consider the feasibility
of establishing a bureau of information in a central part of the town
as early as possible.
After some further discussion on
this topic the meeting adjourned.

the conditions, and therefor*- could
have no cause for complaint.
Messrs. Lavigne and Dunk, he
said, were exceptionally well fitted
to have the proprietorship of the
Royal Hotel. During the time they
had been jn occupation the hotel
had been conducted in a highly
satisfactory manner,-and no complaints of drunkenness or disorderly conduct of any kind could be
brought against them.
They were at present running
the hotel nominally as agents for
Mr. Wheeler, but that was a very
unsatisfactory airangement, and
serious difficulties might arise at
any time. The hotel was a necessity in the town fpr the accommodation of working men, and it would
be a1 great disaster if at any time it
were closed. The town had grown
sp rapidly of late that it could not
get along with less than three
hotels. The Lake View did not
pretend to be a working man's
hotel, and the accommodation provided by the Palace was altogether
insufficient. The closing of the
Royal would be the means of
throwing a large number of people
on the streets who would have no
place to look for a bed. The present shortage of labor as indicated
by the signs of " Men Wanted" in
the windows of the land companies,
was bringing a great many people
into town, and they must have,
somewhere to stay. To restrict
the town to two hotels would do a
great deal of harm in preventing
it'development. It would be like
putting an iron band around the
body of a young and growing
As for running the hotel without
a license, he did not think it was
practicable. He did not know of
one temperance hotel in the whole
of Kootenay or Yale districts which
was running successfully where
there were other hotels holding
licenses. Summerland hotel might
be pointed out, but there was no
other hotel holding a license to
compete with it.
It v- ould be a calamity to the
town at the present time to be reduced to two hotels, and in order
to avoid any such disaster he
would ask the commissioners to
sanction the transfer of the license
to Messrs. Lavigne and Dunk.
After a short consultation the
commissioners announced that
that they had decided to adjourn
the meeting until next Wednesday
morning in order that they might
inspect the hotel in question.

Rev. Vance the newly appointed
minister for the Rutland and Ellison districts, preached his opening
sermon at the Rutland church on
Sunday evening last. A large congregation was present, being much
impressed with the earnest, helpful
message. The preacher took for his
text the well-thumbed passage,
"They that wait upon the Lord shall
mount as upon the wings of eagles,
they shall run and not be weary,
they shall walk and not be,faint." It
was a message of promise and hope
to the soul bearing life cross patiently and quietly, revealing the secret
power enabling one to carry the
cheerful and sympathetic, and forgiving spirit amidst the numberless
trying and vexing difficulties of life.
Calling for the sympathy and prayers of the congregation, he promised on behalf of himself and wife
that they would do all in their
power to make his ministry amongst
us here a sucte'ss in the* bestsence
of the word, and it is to be hoped
that the people will earnestly cooperate with Mr. and.Mrs Vance to
that end.

Mr. J. C. Metcalfe, who is touring
the prairie provinces on behalf of
the provincial government to enquire into market conditions there,

Dear Sir:—
I have the honour to report as
follows: On arrival at Calgary,
and after interviewing wholesalers
and retailers, the general consensus
of opinion was that the. crop of
various kinds of fruit in the American Coast States would be a very
heavy one this season, and from
the present reports prices would
rule low. At the present time,
Wenatchee Valley is reported to
have 500 carloads of fruit for sale.
The McPheison Fruit Company
have been offered 100 ' cars of
mixed fruit on consignment by
Fruit Organizations in that valley
indicating the abundant crop.

evening turned out to be a very
successful affair. There was a large
attendance in the Opera House in
spite of the rain.
The chair was taken by tee Rev.
D. J. Welsh, and an excellent programme was rendered.
Mrs. Huycke, Mrs. Dilworth, Miss

Mr. Ely and Mr. Jack Harvey
contributed to the vocal part of the
programme, while cornet solos
were given by Mr. T. Robertson,
violin solo by Miss Lamb, and a
trombone solo by Mr. Hillier.
Mr. A. Ely presided at the piano,
and the success of the concert was
due largely to his efforts. The

I would advise fruit growers and.
shippers of B. C. to perfect their
shipping facilities and marketing
arrangements and give the greatest
care to all the details in putting up
their fruits this season.

Peaches are likely, from recent
reports, to be an exceptionally
large crop everywhere. This with
the energetic efforts being put forth
on the part of American growers
and shippers to sell their products

tendency to reduce the price. I
would also advise growers and
shippers to get quotations into the
hands of wholesale and retail deal-.
ers with estimate' of crop, and

crop is assured.
There is a very determined effort
on the part of jobbers everywhere
here, operating through their boards ,
of trade, to get the present tariff on "
fruit  reduced  frorn the American
side.    These efforts and agitation
along this line are likely to be continued.  Any action by the Domin- <
ion Government in this direction
should be opposed by fruit growers
east and west most energetically.  '

. Editor Orchard City Record,
I Dear Sir:—
I$7 Kindly permit me to make a few
I remarks through your valuable
space on the care taken with some
orchards in this Kelowna district,
more pariicularly with reference to
the bottom lands, as seen by a
I prairie prospective buyer.
Driving along some of your
prominent splendid roads may be
seen orchards that have won for
I Kelowna the name it proudly upholds and certainly merits, viz:
" The Orchard City of the Okanagan." Such orchards are a credit
to the man who owns and cares for
them, and, of course, as a natural
consequence to the vicinity in
But there are some other orchards
—not many, I am pleased to say—
'that displays to public view, even
on prominent corner lots altogether
too many dead trees left standing
as an evidence of total failure ' as
far as being'able to grow fruit trees
is concerned. Now, I am not in a
I position to say why they should be
l/left standing as a public eyesore to
everyone who sees them. Fruit
enthusiasts should see to it ,that
these dead trees should be removed and the sooner the better. If
the owner is.so indifferent as not
to take the trouble to remove them,
then in such cases some means
should be taken to have- them got
out of sight for him for the benefit
of the fruit industry, if not for* the
I pitiable sight it too plainly displays.
A prospective buyer notices all
these signs of failure or success and
the man or company who has land
—orchard land to sell would do
well to have such tell tales speedily
Hoping what I have said   may
be of future use, I remain

Relieves Stomach Misery almost
If the food you ate at your last meal did
not digest, but laid for a long time like lead
on your stomach, then you have indigestion
and quick action should be taken.
Of course there are many other symptoms
of indigestion, such as belching up of sour
food, heartburn, dizziness, shortness of
breath and foul breath, and if you have
any of them, your stomach is out order and
should be corrected.
Mi-o-na tablets have cured thousands of
cases of indigestion and stomach trouble.
If you have any stomach distress, Mi-o-na
will relieve instantly.
But Mi-o-na unlike most so-called dyspepsia remedies, does more than relieve;
it permanently cures dyspepsia or any stomach trouble by putting energy and stcngth
into the walls of the stomach,  where   the
Buyers for large houses are sometimes deceived wben buying cut glass
aud find they have bought what is
commercially known as pressed glass
instead ot the genuine article.
. et there are a tew simple rules
that will safeguard the ordinary buyer
at retail. The chief one is to pick out
only what the manufacturer calls
closed in articles. By this he means
vases, jugs, pitchers, bottles and tbe
like. !
These cannot be duplicated ln pressed glassware, which is first molded iu
patterns and the edges ground. This
process gives it so close a resemblance
to real cut glass that even experts '
may be deceived. i
But in the "closed in" articles some '
way is yet to be devised by which the
pressed Hues can be followed through
the opposite side when put on the
wheel to be cut, as the pressed part
interferes witb the workman seeing
through the glass, which he has to do
in order to follow the lines of tbe de- j
sign on the cutter. j
The kind of cut glass that is coun- !
terfeited is called open work, such as
plates,   nappies   or   any   flat   article
through which the workman can read  j
ily see when finishing it '
Another help in selecting cut glass
is its weight. The genuine is made
from pure lead glass, made chiefly in
America, especially for cutting. This
lead glass is very heavy.
The first step toward cutting is to '
mark on the "blank"—that is, the dish
in the clear glass—in red or other pa mt
the design that has been selected for
The most common designs are dla
moud shapes, stars of various poiuts,
crosses and squares and other geometrical patterns.
The design must be marked on the
glass exactly to stand the test ot com
pass and rule. When all lines are iu
perfect accordance with the pattern
aud also fit the blank the "roughing"
begius. This is cutting the heavy work,
such as the necks ot vases and bottles
aud the heavy lines on the stars.
This is done on a machine called tbe
"mill," a big wooden framed affair, on
top of which is a hopper holding about
half a ton of Berkshire bills sand .
This sand is the only kind in tnis

Roughshod Methods of Sightseers In
Albert Bigelow Paine says in describing a visit to a Constantinople
, mosque:
"Some kind ot ceremony was in
progress when we arrived; but, as
usual in sucb places, we did not mind.
We went right in Just tne same, and
our guides, too, and we talked and
pointed and did what we could to
oreak np the services. Old turbaned
sons ot the prophet were uueellng and
bowing and praying here and there
aud were a good deal ln tbe way.
Sometimes we tell over tbem. Dut we
were charitably disposed and did uot
tick them—at least I didn't, aud I
don't think any ot the party did: We
might kick a dog—kick at nim..l mean
—it we tripped over one, but we do
not kick a Mosiem-not a live one. We
only take bis picture and step on him
aud muss olm up and make a tew
notes and go.
"1 have been wondering what would
happen to a party oi tourists—Moslems, for Instance—wbo broke Into an
American church during services, witb
guides to point and explain, and stared
at the people who were saying their
prayers and stalked over them as if
they were was figures. An American
congregation would be annoyed by a
mob like tbat and would remove it
and put it in tbe calaboose. But. then,
sucb things wouldn't nappe'u in America. We have cowed our foreign visitors. Besides, there is nothing in an
American church that a foreigner
would care to see."—Outing.
Going Astray at Sea.
The difficulty ot keeping a modern
steamship ou a straight course is no
slight one. The helmsman steers by
tbe compass, and, while a single degree ot deviation appears very small
ou tbe compass card, It would if con-
duued carry a fast steamship four
miles out ot her course iu a single
day's run. Yet the compass gives the
course more accuratefy than the ship
can be steered. Owing to tbe deflecting power ot tbe waves and tbe roll-
lug ot tbe ship, which It she Is ot tbe
t win screw type causes first one ot ber
propellers and then tbe other to exert
greater effect, tbe course Is continually shifted a little this way and that
despite tbe helm. Tbe only safety is
tn correcting tbe compass course by
frequent observations ot tbe sun, moon
aud stars.—New' York Tribune.

The engineer engaged on Vernon's water works sheme, Mr. A.
McL. Hawks, and the Vernon city
council are at present at loggerheads. The relations between the
city and its consulting engineer
have been a little strained, and
matters have been brought to a
crisis by a lengthy report from, Mr.
Hawks, in which he indulges in the
severest criticisms of the council
and its methods of doing things.
He refers to their book-keeping as
" purely feminine," and practically
accuses them of manipulating the
accounts so that his commission is
"always $100 to $500,less than it
should be, under his contract." He
says that "their negligence has
already delayed cornpletion of the
work, and caused him damage and
unnecessary expense." The aldermen have hotly resented Mr. Hawk's
remarks, and in their reply have
plainly told him that he is overstepping his authority and that
many of the actions he criticises
are " none of his business." They
pointed out some serious inconsistences in his reports, which they,
ask him to explain and also request
that the offending report He withdrawn.
On Monday evening a mob,
comprising the knickerbocker element of the community, (we will
not insult our respectable English
citizens by. calling them English)
entered the " Press " office and demanded that the editor devote the
next issue of the 'Press' to an
apoligy for an article- entitled,
" Mock Loyalty and Mock Mourning," which had appeared in the
last issue of the paper. The editor
refused their demand, whereupon
the mob seized him and dragged
him out with' the intention of throwing him tnto a pond of filthy water.
Three citizens came' to the assistance of the editor and things were
pretty lively for a few minutes..
The ringleader was choked, decked
and rolled in thi mud and water.
A number, of the other prominent
rioters were thoroughly ptinched
and clubbed. Another, who had
taken a brave part when he, along
with the eight or ten others, had
only one man to handle, succumbed as soon as a man got ahold of
him. The rest of the rowdy crew
fled like jackals. The editor got
little more than his feet wet. Seven

the mob were arraigned before

The Kootenay Lake steamer,
Kaslo is at present out of commission. A heavy wind drove her
into the wharfe at Ainsworth. Little
damage was apparent, and the
steamer continued her course, but
later discovered that she was taking
u ater rapidly, and the damage ?*as
much more serious than at first
suspected. The steamer was turned and headed for the shore at
full speed as ij: was feared the furnace would be flooded, if the boilers might not burst. The steamer
was safely beached just as the stoke
hold was flooded, and with some
difficulty lines were carried ashore:
A feature of the accident was
the calmness ofthe passengers and
crew. The freight is being saved
altho the. boat is almost submerged
in fifteen fe«*.t of water. Unless the
vessel slips back into, deep water,
this will.most probably all be salved. The. crew and passengers

Having the advantages of both Town and Country Life.
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 the
market, and at the end ofthe week, May 21 st, 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
/ retained for itself.   .

Olden Time "Raiment."
Id early Bible days richly etnbroid
ered raiment was enumerated with
the gold, sliver and other valuable
property ot a rich man. JLn that primitive age Dame Fashion was not the
tickle goddess she Is at present, and
the "raiment" so frequently mentioned in the Holy Scriptures descended
from father to son as a valuable part
ot the inheritance. Raiment was ot
ten sent, with gold and gems, as a
present to dignitaries. It took not
months, but years, to ornament some
ot these garments, and the gold thread
so lavishly used ln embroidering them
was real gold. Moses describes the
process of making the gold thread that
was used tn ornamenting the tabernacle. The habit ot making presents
•>t rare needlework Is still common
among eastern nations that changed
ihelr customs so slowly.

Hardly Changed Since the Days of the
Early Metal Workers.
A3 the first fireplace was a circle of
stones at the mouth of a cave, so the
first poker was a piece of green stick.
It was necessary to have something to
knock the logs together witb when
they began to bum through the middle, and as primitive man did not wear
boots be could, uot use tbem to kick
the hot embers Into place, as some of
us do to this day. That was a refinement, if it can be so called, wbicb
came later. The green stick lasted until the age of iron and was then superseded by a handy piece ot metal which
possessed the advantage of being
strouger and of not burning away.
But since the days of the early workers In metal we have made no ad*
vance.      ■
The poker bas hardly, if at all,
changed through the ages. It Is. as It
always has been, simple and severe of
outline. It lends itself to no vagaries
and to little ornamentation. It Is one
ot thev few things whlcb no one has
ever patented, because it may be said
to have leaped from the first foundry
perfect and complete in every respect.
The only notable attempt at Improvement bas been to make tbe poker of
brass wltb-a twisted column, but even
then the Iron poker lurks at tbe side
and Is known, as the curate, because It
does all the rough work. Ttje ornamental poker Is not a poker at all, but
a sbam, an upstart masquerading under an ancient and honored name and
gaining credit for dudes whlcb it is
unable to perform.—London Globe.

The One Known In History as the
"Victory of Victories."
The battle which is known In history as the "Victory of Victories" took
place at Nehavend, ln Bcbatana, and
was fought between the new Moslem
power ln 63? and the empire of Persia, then one of the most powerful of
tbe eastern monarchies. It was one of
the most absolutely decisive battles in
tbe history ot war, and it was all the
more amazing by reason of the fact
that It was won by a people who
twenty years before had been unknown barbarians, lost in the deserts
of Arabia.
Arabian historians place the Persian
loss in a single day at 100,000 men
I killed. This may be and probably is
an exaggeration, but the fact remains
that the Persian dynasty came to an
end when the battle was over and that
Zoroastrianlsm. which had been the religion of Persia for over a thousand
years, was at once supplanted by islam. Its modern representatives, as is
well known, are now the Parsees of
The victory was so absolutely decisive tbat It extended tbe Arabian dominions over the whole of the region
lying between the Caspian sea and the
Indian ocean. With the exception perhaps of the battle of Tours, no single
fight ever made such a difference In
the after history of the world.

A 8hooldng Tree.
There Is a peculiar tree in the forests of central India wbicb has most
curious characteristics. Tbe leaves of
the tree are of a highly sensitive nature and so full ot electricity tbat
whoever touches one of tbem receives
an electric shock. It has a very singular effect upon a magnetic needle and
will influence It at a distance of even
seventy feet The electrical strength
of the trees varleji according to the
time of day, it being strongest at midday and weakest at n^ldnlgbt ln wet
weather Its powers disappear altogether. Birds never approach the
tree, nor have insects ever bean seen
upon it     .
