AThe mayor announced that Aid.
jonee would be leaving shortly for
the east and would be away for a
month or .two.   As he was chairman of the/Parks committee, he
thought it would be necessary to
.  appoint someone else in the meantime. •■ He suggested that Messrs.

put on the committee.

' yould be better to haye brie ward
*or each alderman.
Would it not be better to keep
to the ward system, asked Aid,
The mayor replied that personally he preferred to cut them all
out. The tendency in many small
places at the present time was to
abandon the ward system. There
were many, advantages in so doing.
It simplified to a great extent the
working   of   elections,   and   the
preparation of the voters' list.
J There was a disadvantage, said
id. Cox, and that was that if
people had any complaints to make,
they had no particular representative to speak for them.
A long letter was read from the
Reeve of Penticton in which he
endeavored, to explain his recent
damaging utterances at a public
meeting in respect to Kelowna's
water supply, by laying all the
blame on the editor of the " Penticton Press," who he said, had not
correctly reported him, and had
invented many of the statements
for his own amusement. Some of
the sfetements he admitted having
made, and his authority for these
was. information he had received
from Kelowna some time ago.
.'• The'city clerk looked up a letter
he had written in reply to an
enquiry from Pentiqton at the fime
referred to for information .concerning Kelowna's water system.
The letter was found to contain
.none of the derogatory information
whfch the reeve alleges he'received.
Si§'__u'Mayor Sutherland submitted a
draft of By-law No. 77, the purpose
of which was to regulate the speed
of automobiles within- .the city
limits. 7 .-'.•■"•'•
• Ald..StirIing said he fully.agreed
with the idea of the by-law. It was
a very difficult thing, however, ;to
prove'the speed of cars.v , ,; : ';.
S^A^iL^kie^said7he : hitaf heard
of some kind.of ah attachment \fpr.
the axles of automobiles, in which,'
when' the speed gets over a certain
limit a horn blov's. 7- "
Aid. Stirling.said that the chief
difficulty would be with cars from
outside. Such a regulation would
realjy be very little use unless all
^e^.tpwriftlri the valley- were to take
similar action.y' He'was riot against
^he___jpi^;idfi'^ People'
ought tip .drive thrpugh jthe town at
reasonable speeds.7 <" .
Aid. Leckie suggested that they
ought to get information from other
places as to" the best means of
checking the speed of cars.' The
by-law eventually passed its first
reading, the speed, limit being left
open for further discussion.,
A letter was read from Dr. Boyce
re the raising of his salary as police
magistrate, .and enclosing the
following communication from the
Attorney-General: Ay

New Road to the
K. L. 0. Bench
Bridge Over Creek May B^ -•
Byilt This. Season
The long talked of road up to
the K. L. O. bench seems likely to
materialize at no distant date. At
present the only means, of .communication, between an already
largely settled district and one
which is fast filling up with fruitgrowers and their families, and
Kelowna, is the old "Gulch road,"
ithe dangers of which are too well
known to need comment. This
road is merely the old brail up to
the bench, dating back to the days
before any sign of development
had taken place in the district. ' Its
difficult grades, sharp turns, and
narrow places, make; it hard to
travel and risky even at the best of
times, but in the winter, when there
is any ice on the ground, it is
courting disaster to attempt to
bring a heavy load in to town, and
pretty near impossible to take one
back. With the# advent of automobiles, however, the urgency of
the demand for a new
road has been doubled,
pect pf meeting one or
\vkh a spirited horse in some of the
precipitous places in the Gulch
road does not encourage nervous
.people to come dpwri.to town very
often. And the trouble is that the
road cannot be improved except
at enormous expense.
A short time ago a petition largely
signed by the residents- and many
of the people in town was forwarded^ to .-,- tJhe . ,Hw7 J^s^ Elljsoffi
fpr';',thVrpng '.projected; new road, to
and better
The pros-
two  autos
rfsply has been ^received to ' the
effect that a report is being made
on the new route, and the minister
will endeavour to have the new
bridge over Mission Creek under,
way this season, as he fully appreciates the importance of this
short cut to Kelowna.
; Theroad involves the_bridging'
of Mission Creek at a point much,
higherup than the present K. L. O.,
bridges and would be much more
direct, and shorter, and easier than
the present round-about course.

Railway Co. Accept Council's
The Kettle VaUey Railway Co.,
informed the Penticton council at
their last meeting that they accepted the proposal of the latter with
respect to the area of lake frontage
to be granted to. the railway. A
a telegram was also read stating
that satisfactory arrangements had
been completed between the C.P.R.
and Kettle valley railway companies for the building of a wharf and
for the interchange of traffic, so that,
now all dfficulties in the way ofthe
Kettle Valley Railway Co. making
its cheif inter-terminat divisional
point at Penticton seem to have
been cleared away.
A party of some twenty men arrived last Tuesday from Calgary
having obtained work with the
Kelowna Irrigation Co. They arrived travel weary and hungry, and
in no very pleasant frame of mind
owing to somedifficulty connected
with their baggage. Tneir black
looks as they stood around the
wharfs after the boat had gone out
soon turned to smiles as up came

Dominion Day
at Penticton
Huge Crowd to Witness the
Races and Sports
Penticton had the biggest crowd
of its life last Friday, when the
Dominion Day sports were successfully carried through. The
" Aberdeen " must have taken a
big chunk out of Kelowna's population judging by her crowded
state as she left the wharf in the
early morning. The ' York ' took
in a crowd from Peachland and
Summerland, and the ' Okanagan '
in the afternoon brought still more,
from higher up the valley. Hotel
accommodation was at a premium.
The scene at the entrance to the
dining room was like the ' Stewart
gold rush.' Lucky was he who
managed to stake his claim in good
Penticton had assumed quite a
holiday appearance, and the streets
were gay with bunting and evergreens. The race course is some
distance out of town. The road
thither was a constant stream of
conveyances and foot passengers.
The Indians were theie in force,
and a pretty big force they must
have at that end of the lake, Many
of them had quite a prosperous appearance, and had brought along
some of the finest horse flesh in
the valley.
The field presented an animated
scene, crowded with rigs arid hprses
of all descriptions, and the grand

News of the Valley.
A new blacksmith shop is being
erecten in Summerland to replace
the ond recently destroyed by fire.
Vernon is considering the advisability of tinting the cerr.cnt
used in sidewalks in order to reduce the glare in the hot sun.
Postmaster Lefroy, of Vernon,
has had the misfortune to break his
collar bone by falling through the
floor joists of a new building which
is being erected.
Mayor Husband proposed the
following resolution in the last
meeting of' the Vernon council:
" That in the opinion of this council, improvements should be exempt
from taxation, and that taxes should
be levied on land values only,
and that immediate steps be taken
to secure the opinion of the ratepayers on the subject." Our
present system, declared Mr. Husband, in the course of his speech,
is a direct discouragement to the
home maker. If a man owns a
vacant lot we only tax him a certain amount, but as soon as he
shows a little enterprise and helps
to build up the city—and the business of every merchant, mechanic
and laborer in the city—by building
himself a home, we reward him by
taxing him extra for his enterprise.
Not .only does it discourage home
building in this direct way but it;
discourages it in an indirect way
in that by allowing the speculator
or absentee owner to get off lightly,
in the way of taxes it encourages
them to hold their land at too high
a price for the would-be home
builder to buy it.
Vernon council have granted
$600 to their Fire Brigade Band for
the current year.
Summerland's annual exhibition
is to be held about the 14th of
October. About. $600 is to be
given in prizes, and efforts are being made to -organize a good

Whilst digging a drain under the
Mountain House at Prairie Valley,
recently, the worker came across a
nest containing six eggs upon which
the mother bird was sitting, about
two feet under the surface. The
eggs were all fertile. It would be
interesting to know how the bird
came to be there, and how many
years it had been buried.—Summer-

The members of the Canoe Club
have had a very good offer for
their war canoe. It has not yet
been decided what to do in the
matter, but seeing that the athletics
and sports ' seem to be in a very
dormant state at the present time,
it would not be a bad idea to dispose of this piece of property, and
place the proceeds in a tVust account at the bank, to be expended
at some future time in a manner
decided upon by the members.
Maybe, seeing that at present there
is no place for the bathers, it could
be spent in the erection of such an
one, or if it has to be devoted to
boats of some kind, then a good
idea would be to erect some sort
of landing for motors, &c, which
couid be used as a tie-up for craft
of this description. — Summerland

The Coming Irrigation
The subject of irrigation has become one of the utmost importance
in the west. In both the United
States and the dominion the subject
has been specialized and 3'ear by
year—profiting by experience in
practical irrigation, laying out and
operating irrigation projects and the
enacting of legislation dealing with
water rights and privileges, marked
progress is being made. To keep
western Canada in touch with that
progress and to be a factor in the
making of it, the Western Canada
Irrigation association was organized
and on the third, fourth and fifth
of August the annual convention
of the association will be held, the
place of meeting being Kamloops,
The immense irrigation works
carried on by the C.P.R. in Alberta,
the several large irrigation projects
in operation and in progress in this
province, reclaiming great tracts of
semi-arid land, and the many other
extensive tracts still awaiting reclamation by irrigation, cannot but
provide much food for thought on
the part of those interested in the
development of the west. In view
of the importance of the subjects
that come within the iange of objects of the Western Canada Irrigation association it is highly desirable, nay, it is imperative, that
the attendance at these annual
conventions should be representative of every part of the west where
irrigation is or should be practised.
The basis of representation is such
that every city, town and district
in the three provinces of Alberta.
Saskatchewan and British Columbia
may send delegates, and it is urged
that seps be taken immediately to
send as large a number of delegates
as possible so that the convention
will be a thoroughly representative
The general secretary of the
association is John T. Hall, Brandon
Manitoba, and the local secretary at
Kamloops is Thos. Calloway, either
of whom will be pleased to furnish
any information desired as.to the
convention. Special rates have
been arranged for with all the
transportation companies. Arrangements are being made for
accommodating at Kamloops the
delegates attending and their
comfort and welfare will be well
looked after by the local committee
on arrangements.
Arrangements are being made to
have the recognized expetrs in
irrigation and allied subjects address the convention, and every
opportunity will be given for the
interchange of ideas and discussions
thereon that will lead to their very
best development.
Important Discovery of
Women as Bank Clerks.
We are shown this week by Mr.
A. J. Smythe, of the Peachliffe
Farms near the Okanagan Falls, a
fine specimen of abestos, which
came from a vein recently discovered by Mr. Manard of that place.
Mr. Smythe imforms us that the
seam is 15 inches wide, and is beyond doubt the greatest discovery
of the kind that has yet been made
in Canada apart from the famous
deposit in Quebec, from which the
trade of the Dominion and a large
part of the United States is
now suppled. The vein was
found in the hills adjoining Mr. Smythe's fruit farm,
about 2 miles east of Okanagan Falls
and the value of this important discovery can hardly be over estimat
ed. We are imformed that Mr. Jas.
Ritchie, of Kaleden, has invested
$20,000 in the claim, which will be
used for developement purposes,
and that work will be prosecuted
vigorously and without delay. Asbestos when mined is worth about
$200 per ton, and when the fibre is
separated from the rock the product
sells for $1,500 per ton.—"Demon
The Bank of Montreal is experimenting with women clerks in its
offices in Montreal. If the experiment proves, a success—and the
bank officials ore confiident that it
will—the day of the male bank
clerk is doomed. The reason for
the step is the great scarcity of
suitable young men for the work.
An advertisement for twenty-five
bank clerks to come out to Canada
for service in the Western provinces, inserted in a London paper
by the Bank of Montreal, brought
only two clerks.

The C.F.R. are putting in some
large extensions ih Calgary. The
yardage facilities are to be increased, providing stowage for 1000 additional freight cars. A new concrete machine shop and round
house is already in progress, and
a new wing is being added to the
station. In addition the Company
has practically completed, the task
of doubling the freight warehouses.
The urgent necessity of the exten-
tions is proven by the Western
Division report just issued, which
is operated from Calgary, has added seventy miles of sidings and
passing tracks and twenty miles of
industrial sidings, in order to handle the constantly increasing business. -
The coal holdings of the Hon.

airship has ended in disaster, The
captain, crew of ten with twenty
newspaper men, sailed from Dus-
selldorf last week in Count Zep-
perlins passenger airship Deutsch-
land. A high head wind sprang
up and made progress difficult. To
add to their troubles one of the
motors refused to work. A whirlwind struck them, then a storm of
rain. They finally Qame to rest on
the top of some pine trees, forty
feet from the ground. The passengers escaped uninjured but the
airship was .torn and twisted into
ruins. -   '   .

Weyburn, Sask, has been particularly unfortunate in the recent
terrible wind storms which have
been sweeping over certain sections
of Sasckatchewan. Buildings have
been torn down and several deaths
recorded. .In one case a family of
homesteaders were in the house
watching the  storm.    They, were
shocked to-see  their  own  bam
turned completely over and smashed to matchwood, but no sooner
happened than .the very house they
were in was torn from its foundation
lifled over their heads, and rolled
over and over, breaking and crashing as it went. The mother' and
father and a child twenty months
old were left. Beds, tables and
chairs were lifted by the gale and
carried many yards. The stove
wasblown over next,'and as it went
it struck the child a heavy blow on
the head, stunning the little one.
The mother had the child in her
arms, and had her arm broken, the
flesh being torn by the the stove as
as it swept past. The child died
soon after.

You will have to act quickly if you wish to secure a lot in this desirable
sub-division, for it is selling rapidly.   The locatiori 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 of the week, May 21 st, there were but nineteen
, lots remaining unsold.   Our town  is rapidly growing, and it will not be
1 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
■   r~ '■•• retained for itself.

A Group of Good Questions.
One of the documents used in the  fight
against the saloon in a town   in the Western States was a card upon which the  following pertinent questions were printed :
" Do you want saloons?   If so, why?
" Who of us want them, and for what?
" Is time spent in them that could be
better spent elsewhere?
" Is money spent in them which could
do more good spent otherwise?
" Is there likely to be any gambling
there ?
"Is any money worse than wasted in
them ?
" Do fathers set bad examples there for
their boys by patronizing them ?
" Do our boys get good habits there that
will make them good men, or habits that
will make them goo'd-for-nothing men ?
" Do you think it is a good place for
students ? '
" Would saloonkeepers themselves, and
their families, be better, happier, or more
useful in some other business ?
" Do saloon keepers want to do us good
or get our money ?
" Do you like the diciation of the saloon
in polictics?
" Let us think of these questions, and
vote as we think is right, not as those who'
only want our money wish us to vote.
" Has anybody been hurt by having
these places shut up ? If so, who? And
how have they been hurt?"

without expense to the city.
A straight majority carries and all licenses cease.
Makers and shippers of liquor connot
import it into distsicts were the vote carries.
This is an effective remedy to 'blind-pigs'.
The no-license period is for three years
and can be continued by similiar vo,e.
On reasonable grounds a re-count is
The voting connot take place on any
other election day.
Liquor cannot be sold or given away

In Holland.
The Dutch pawnshop ot Amsterdam,
known as Bank van Leeniug, is under
the control of tbe municipality. Up to
1616 the. business was teased by the
city to a private company, but as it
refused to reduce Its Interest on pawned articles tbe city took over tbe bust
ness aud has managed It ever since.
The first shop was established lu the
Bnge Lambardsteeg. and business Is
still doue Iu tbe original building. As
the business Increased braucb houses
were opened, and there are now fifteen
such branches throughout the city!
Each article pawned costs about 6
cents for administration, and about
$25,000 per annum is lost ou articles
pawned which do not pay more than
4 per cent Interest
it appears to be tbe custom of some
people in Holland to pawn their best
clothes on Monday morning, redeem
them on the Saturday nigbt following
and repawn tbem on the following
Monday, securing their use for the
Sunday outing. Over 40 per cent of
the business of tbe pawnshop consists
ot this class ot pledges.
Tbe revenue is derived from Interest
on pledges, to 10 cents charged on
each loan for administering expenses,
amounts received from the sale of
pledges and rent of parts ot the building owned by tbe pawnshop.
The minimum advanced on any article is 16 cents and the maximum $20L
Tbe interest paid runs from 6 per cent
to 13 per cent Tbe amount of Interest collected Is regulated every three
years, so that the bank will not receive at any time more than 3 per cent
on the capital invested.—Consular Reports.

It Was Not Surprising, Though, In
View of the Explanation.
Letters of introduction are not invariably serviceable. For one reason,
they may be too frank. Harry Fur-
nlss in his "Confessions' of-a Caricaturist" says that when a brother artist
was setting forth on his travels in foreign climes he was provided with a
letter ol introduction to a certain British consul.
The writer of the letter inclosed It
in one to tbe artist saying that be
would find tbe consul a most arrant
snob, a bumptious, arrogant humbug,
u cad to the backbone. Still, be would
probably offer £ome courtesies to any
one who bad 'a good social standing
and thus compensate the traveler for
having to come ln contact witb such
an insufferable vulgarian.
On the return of the artist to England the writer of the letter asked
bow be bod fared with the consul.
"Well, ray dear fellow," drawled tbe
artist, "he did not receive rae very
warmly, and be did not ask me to dinner, tn fact he struck me as being
rather cool."
"Well, you do surprise me," rejoined
his friend. "He's a cad. as I told you
Id my letter, but he's very hospitable,
and 1 really can't understand this state
of things. You gave him my letter of
introduction V
"Why, 1 thought so; but. do you
know, on my journey home I discovered it in my pocketbook. so I must
have handed to him instead yonr note
to me about him."
The explanation was quite adequate

The   Act  by   Which   One  Controversy
Was Decided.
Three men were disputing in Berlin
one day as to .which of them had the

well known writer to decide tbe matter.

second one. "Put me in a corner of
this room, and I will play three games
of chess simultaneously without ever
looking at tbe boards."
"That's nothing to what I cau do."
said tbe first speaker again. "Begin a
conversation with me now about the
most absurd things possible, and at
tbe end of an hour I will repeat the
entire conversation to you."
Tbe third man was silent, and t'be
referee said to him: "Why don't you
tell us what you can. do? A few min',
utes ago you were boasting a good
deal of your wonderful memory."
"1 know it," was the reply, "but 1
did not then know that my two friends
took tbe matter so seriously. And as
.they are so much in earnest I will not
try to surpass them, for I cannot forget that each of them did me a favor

The Old Way of Passing Bills.

ot Rutland's papers at Kel voir castle

ot getting private bills through tbe
English bouse ot commons tn tbe days
ot King Charles II. The case tn band
was tbe divorce bill of John Lord de
Roos, an affair tbat caused a great
deal of gossip in its day. One of bis
lordship's agents wrote In January,
1667: "On Wednesday last 1 got six
and forty of tbe bouse of commons to
the Dog tavern, tn the palace yard at
Westminster, wben were present Mr.
Attorney General and Mr. George
Montagu. As soon as tbey had dined
we carried them all to the house of
commons, and they passed the bill, as
the committee, without any amendments, and ordered it to be reported
the next day."

Why not get an Automobile ?
Did you ever stop to figure out the advantages which a reliable
Automobile possesses over the old-fashioned horse and rig ? ,
Did you ever think, you who live in the country, what a big
saving of precious time in the busy season it would be to have a car
which would run you into town and back in the time it would take
to catch, the old horse and hitch him up ?
What a quick means it would present of marketing your small
fruit, vegetables, dairy, and poultry produce?
Do you know that over 76,000 farmers in the States are runningv
automobiles?    They are realizing the benefits of quick transportation
in their business.
Just sit down right now and think it out for yourself
and then come arqund let us talk to you about the best car to meet
your individual needs. It will cost you nothing to get advice and
see the various styles we'sell.

just then the brakeman opened the car
door and called the next stolon."—
