Messrs.. McKenzie & Co., and
the Dominion Securities Corporation, purchasers ofthe latest issues

mentioned, had paid for same in
full. The latter wrote, complimenting the city clerk for the prompt
and business-like way in which the
matter had been put thrbugh, and
thanking the city for the satisfactory
way in. which the business was
On behalf of the water committee Aid. Leckie reported that he
had had a large number of applications from various places for
connection with the water system.
AU the wood pipe had been used
up, but some of the applications
from Chinamen, and others were
too profitable to the city to turn
down, and he had ventured to take
upon himself to order 1000 feet of
pipe. This would come by local
freight, which would cost more in
proportion than a carload, bnt he
did not think such a large quantity
as a. car lot was' necessary just
now.        y _ .
Aid. Leckie also mentioned that
he had had several applications tp
be cut off from the water svstem.
The amounts most of these people
had paid, did not cover the cost of
connection. with the city's main,
not to mention their proportion of
the cost of the main pipe line.
Aid. Cox asked if the applicants
wished to Ke disconnected alto-
Sither from the* system, or only for
e winter months.
Aid. Leckie said he supposed
they wanted to be disconnected
until the time came around again
for irrigating their lawns.   It did
not seem to be a satisfactory deal
so far as the council were concerned. The council had been at the
expense of laying the pipe from the
main to their houses, and then
after a few months' use they wished to be cut off. He would like to
know what the council wished to
do in such cases. It would be
well in future to have some kind
of contract for water users to sign
which would protect the city
against similar cases.
Mayor Sutherland said it was the
intention to have a by-law framed
which would cover such matters.
At the present, as there was no
contract between the city and the
parties concerned, they could do
nothing but cut off the service.
A letter was read from Mr. DuMoulin, manager of the Bank of
Montreal, enclosing the copy of a
letter to Mr. Stevens, of Summer-
land, superintendent of Government Telegraphs, in which Mr.
DuMoulin complained of the action
of Mr. Millie in cutting off his
'phone service for non-payment of
an account of $1.60, which was for
a telegram which he (Mr. DuMoulin) claimed had not been delivered.
It was decided that the council
had no control over the matter.
The question of a claim for $22.50
from the Kelowna Cannery for
damages and expense incurred
through the city water being shut
off without notice, then came up
for consideration.
Aid. Leckie explained that a T
had been broken on the main pipe
some considerable time ago. When
the work of repairing the break
was undertaken a few weeks, ago,
an attempt was made first to shut
off part of the system at the stopcock* but the valve was found to
be plugged up with tar and would
not work. It therefore became
necessary to shut down the whole
plant to prevent a flood.
The matter was discussed at
some length, and it was decided to
have the manager of the cannery
appear before the committee to
discuss the claim.
Mayor Sutherland mentioned
that the special rate fixed in the
by-law for watering the streets in
the centre of the city was too high,
and was producing too much
money. The object of the council
had ' been to raise only sufficient
money to pay the actual cost of
the, watering. It had been found
that instead of the present rate, of
3 cents per foot frontage, a rate of
2 cents on Bernard avenue and
I cent. on the narrower streets
would have been sufficient. To
adjust the matter"' for the present
irear year, he had drafted the fol-
owing motion: " That that part of
Pendozi street south of Kelowna
Club be exempt from the watering
tax; that Pendozi street and Water
street be exempt for the months of
August and September; and that
Bernard avenue and Abbott street
be exempt for September."
This motion was accordingly
passed, and a suggestion made that
a foot note be placed on the .bylaw - so that it could be amended
another year so as better to meet
the expenditure.
Aid. Jones raised the question of
grants by asking if the city's grant
of $60 to the Tranquille Sanatorium
had been paid. If not, he recommended that it be sent at once, as
he understood that the institution
was very short of funds, and were
having to refuse to accept patients
account of the lack of furnish-
credit to the city.
The following motion was passed : " That the amounts of grants
as follows and as already passed
by the council be paid."
KeloWna Hospital  $400 00
Kel. Gty Band (balance)  200 00
B. C. Anti-Tuberculosis Society    60 00
Apple Show Exhibit (per Board of
Trade)  100 00
Kelowna Rifle Association     25 00
A motion was also passed that a
grant of $75 which had been
promised to the Aquatic Association be paid.
The meeting was then adjourned
until Tuesday evening next, Oct.
25th, Monday evening being the
date of the meeting in connection
with the opening of the new
Presbyterian church at which some
of the council would be present.

Kelowna Exhibit Was
All Home Grown
Mr. A. E. Boyer asks us to correct certain reports which have
been circulated to the ' effect that
some of the fruit contained in the
Kelowna exhibit at the Westminster Exhibition was not grown in the
Kelowna district. This is entirely
false, and on the authority of Mr.
Boyer, manager of the exhibit, and
his assistants, Mr. J. Sewell, Mr.
Muirhead, and Mr. J. Dixon, we
haye to state that every portion of
the enormous exhibit was obtained
within the near district. ^
The opening session of the Literary Society was held in the
school house on Tuesday last. The
splendid moonlight, together with
the mildness of the night tempted
numbers to attend from Rutland,
Glenmore, and even as far distant
as Kelowna. The school was filled
to overflowing. The programme
was arranged by Mr. Whitaker and
his pupils, and reflected great
credit on all who took part in the
entertainment, everj' number of
which was well enjoyed, and it
was evident that the district tfill
not lack ability or talent in the
musical way at future events of the
kind. Mr. M. Hereron presided
in his usual affable manner. Mr.
J. Adams gave an appreciative
recitation, entitled "The Lifeboat."
Mrs. Hereron sang an old favorite,
and Mr. Schwab delighted us with
his comic songs. Messrs. Groves
and Smith, of London, kept the
audience in good humor with their
singing, even if they did have a
difficulty with their top notes. Their
pluck was to be admired in sticking at them. After refreshments
were served by the ladies, the
national anthem was sung in a
most hearty manner, and the inaugural session of the Literary
Society was brought to a close.

A Surprise Packet
A pleasant surprise was awaiting
Mr. Fi DeCacquery at the post office
lastTuesday in the shape of a registered packet containing $ 50.00
in American gold coins, and a letter from Funsten Bros. & Co., of
St. Louis U. S. A., informing him
that he had won first prize in a
photographic contest.

A Barn Yarn.
A Farmer at Lloydminster owns
a freak bam, which.if it can be domesticated, promises to solve the
high cost of outdoor building problem. When he built the structure
a few years ago he used willow
posts for the corners and sides, setting them in the ground in a vertical position. The following season he found that the posts had
taken root and were growing rapidly. That fall the floor of the barn
which had-before then been on the
ground, was three feet above the
ground level. A year ago the barn
was on stilts "nine "rcet :high, and"
the owner placed another story underneath to conserve space and
make entrance easier, making the
original one-storey barn a two-story
structure. Each succeeding year
adds another storey and there is
no telling when the sky climbing
warehouse will reach its limit. The
owner is contemplating putting in
an elevator to carry the hay up to
the stock in the top flight.

The announcement which comes
from  Victoria   of   the intention of
the provincial government to build
two great highways in the province
—one from the coast to the neighboring  province  of  Alberta, and
the  other  a trans-provincial road
running north and south and covering a distance of between 500 and
600 miles, will, say the Province,
be received with interest and approval by  the public everywhere.
There  is  nothing that British Columbia  so  much requires as roads
which will make accessible practically  every part  of the province.
With facilities reasonably good in
this  respect, and  with' increasing
railway  advantages  which we are
now  securing  the country should
fill up with gratifiying rapidity.    It
is for want of conveniences of this
kind   that many rich  and' fertile
valleys which the province possesses have lain idle and uncultivated.
Many  of these valleys are hardly
even known as yet, but in the case
of those which have been known
settlers have   hesitated to take up
homesteads, as they were  without
reasonable   means of getting their
produce to market     Past provincial governments failed altogether
to   grasp   the  necessity for such a
policy of roadJ,yconstruction in the
province.    As Inconsequence it is '
only now that many old pioneers
in agriculture in British Columbia . _ ;..$&«
are beginning to see a prospect of^T^^^i
reaping the reward of many years
of toil.7 -
The road from the coast to
Alberta could not fail to pass
through many extremely desirable
districts, and it would serve as a
channel by which farmers from the
middle"west could make their way
wtiiTtJiW^f.ects" into a province'
wtffcH offers HfFifem more desirable*
climatic conditions; and quite as
desirable opportunities for making
money as are' to be found east of
the mountains. But perhaps the
road running north and south to
Fort George, arid .thence by the
Nechaco and Bulkley valleys to
Hazelton would be of even greater
benefit than that running from the
coast to Alberta.

New C.P.R. Liners
for the Pacific
New liners are to be built by the
C. P. R. to replace the Empress of
Japan, the Empress of India, and
Empress of China in the trans-
Pacific trade. According to an
announcement made by the directors at the annual meeting of the
C. P. R. held at Montreal last
week plans are under consideration ~~
and announcement is expected to
be made of an arrangement for the
construction of new liners.
The three Empress boats have
been in service twenty years running regularly to and from British
Columbia ports to the Orient, and
they are now too small for the
rapidly developing trade.   Until a
few years ago  the  bulk   of   the .
saloon travel was enjoyed by the  >
Empresses, but   since   the   larger
steamers have been placed on thto
southern route running into San
Francisco, notwithstanding that the '
voyage occupies several days longer than by the Empresses, a large  -,
share of the travel has been carried  b

Drinking In France
The French   Republic   has   often   been
quoted by anti-prohibitionists as an example of a sober country,  and  an   evidence
that the free consumption   of   light   win»e
promotes temprance. Unfortunately a wine
drinking education develops the desire for
H; stronger liquors, andFrance is now a spirit
U ! drinking country. The Paris correspondent
jj! of the London Daily Mail   recently   made
f,j the following startling statements:--
I.; i     Less tlan   fifty   years  ago   Frenchmen,
|' nays the Paris correspondent of the   Da'Iy
fi | Mai!, coi sumed per head ar.mialy less than
'■- ■ il pints -if alcohol.    To-day   the   average
-.dull Frenchman drinks 70 pints of spirits
;;t 100 dcg. of strength—tiiat is almost equ-
I ivalent to 165   pints  of   brandy—a  year.
j Thirty years ago France contained a   wine
.hop, or cafe, for every I09inhabitants. To
day there is one for every   forty.   Liquor-
I selling establishments in Paris number 80-
! 0Q£). while London,   whose   population   is
! mare than double, has only 6,000.
:     Dr. Dertillion, the head of the Municipal
; Statiscal Department, says there are 1,378,-
■ 000. distilleries in France.    In   some  parts
\ of the country the people take alcohol   as
others drink  water consuming nearly two
! pints daily.    An alarming   aspect   of   this
• question is the rapid strides made in absin-
j the drinking, and the fact that children are
! becoming familiar with the poison.   Of   a
'• class  of forty nine pupils, thirty  acknow-
I ledged that they had tasted absinthe,   and
| in a class of sixty-three children   between
I six and nine years of age, twentyfour   ad-
! mittcd that they were given brandy   every
I day.    Wherever the consumption of spirits
| has increased, the   drinking   of   wine   has
[ decreased.
The Potup.r Behind The Bar.
The liquor people prate about personal
liberty, but if it were not for the money
intrcsts behind the traffic the appetite for
drink would not keep it alive for a week,
The bar-room is a slot machine that takes
more than dimes and doliars. How many
Canadian fathers and mothers have dropped a boy or a girl into that slot machine
this year? How many wives have dropped into it their happiness, how many men
their positions, their good names, their future hopes and ambitions, their present
joy ? And all that, a few a very few, men
may grow rich. That is the power behind
the bar-room. Fathers, mothers, citizens,
isn't it time to break it ?—Local Option

Speaking on the subject of church
union in Canada, Dr. McLaren
said he believed it would surely
come, and the idea had ahe.-.ciy
gone far bevond the committee
stage. There was a maiveilouoly
strong sentiment towards union
making itself evident al! over the
country. There was a needless
multiplication of services,especially
in the west, which even before organic union was secured might be
reached by co-ordination.
Samuel Gibbs, of Lillooet has
resigned his commission as justice
of the peace at the request of the
the attorney-general. Recently Mr.
Gibbs in his capacity as justice had
before him a case in which a
resident of the district was charged
with infractions of the liquor1 law.
The defendant pleaded guilty, but
instead of fining him $100, the
lhwest sum allowed by the act. the
magistrate gave him a lecture and
let him off. The department is determined that the liquor law shall
be rigidly enforced, and under the
circumstances the attorney-general
came to the conclusion that the
usefulness of Mr. Gibbs as a
magistrate had ceased. The resignation was therefore asked for
and upon being received was at
once accepted.

The Economy of the Prevention of Conveyance
Losses of Irrigation Water
And Use of Concrete for the Economical Construction of Irrigation Structures
By Professor ETCHEVERRY, of the University of California
Read before the Fourth Annual Convention of the Western Canada Irrigation Association, held
at Kamloops, B.C., August 3rd, 4th, and 5th, 1910.
It was with great pleasure that I less than 2 feet.    These
accepted  the invitation  to   come 25   to  50    times    the
from California to present a paper
to this body. Not only does it
give me an opportunity to give you
some information which I hope
will be of value to you in solving
your irrigation problems, but it permits me to become better acquainted with you and your rapidly de"
veloping country, which has
become the home of many of the
best citizens of the United State*.
While this is only my second trip
to British Columbia, I have' during
the past year taken two other trips
in the arid region of the Northwest
of the United States. My first visit
to British Columbia was a short one
last May, when I had occasion to
examine the fruit lands project
across the river from Kamloops.
From this examination, as well as
from the general view I had of this
part of the province, I wasimpress-
ed of the similarity of your country
with some portions of Eastern
Washington, and so I do not feel a
stranger to your irrigation conditions.
I have selected for discussion
topics which I believe are of general interest to those engaged in
irrigation work. In the first part
of my paper I shall discuss
"Seepage and evaporation losses
in the conveyance of water, and
their prevention."
All irrigators are well acquainted
with the fact that the losses in conveying water in earth canals are
in many cases very large, and with
newly-excavated canals are often
so great that it is difficult to deliver
any water at the lower end. The
water lost by seepage disappears
through some underground channel
below, or raises the water table of
the lands adjacent to and below
the canal. This caused either the
waterlogging of the land or the
accumulation of alkali salts on the
surface. This effect, combined
with wasteful irrigation, has been
the cause of over 10 per cent, of
the irrigated lands of the West
becoming unfit for crop production.
These damages alone, in many
cases, justify the expense of lining
the canals. This was forcibly
brought to my attention on a private
project which I visited in the
Yakima Valley in Eastern Washington. Although it had been in
operation only one season, a large
percentage of the land had become
waterlogged. To remedy this
several miles of concrete lining
and the improvement of drainage
were recommended. The lining
has recently been constructed and
wiirno doubt prevent the waterlogging to a large extent.
But even if these damages to the
land are neglected, there are many
localities where water is sufficiently
valuable to make the lining of
canals to prevent the loss of water
losses sre
evaporation of half an inch per
day. A good illustration is obtained from measurements and computations made on one of the
largest systems in the San Joaq uin
Valley. The Jotal length of canals
is !65 miles; the average evaporation loss was .9 of 1 per cent, of
the flow diverted; while the total
seepage losses were 28 per cent.,
or 30 times greater than the evaporation losses. These and other
numerous experiments show the
evaporation losses in the conveyance of water to be so small as
compared with the seepage losses
that they are of no importance.
To prevent the losses of water in
conveyance, lining the canals with
different kinds of materials has
been tried. The materials used or
experimented with are concrete,
wood, asphalt oils, and clay
A good lining should fulfil the
following requirements : It should
be water-tight, prevent the growth
of weeds, stop burrowing animals,
be strong and durable, and not
affected by frost or the tramping of
cattle. A few years ago I had the
opportunity to investigate for the
Government the different types of
canal linings in California, and to
make experiments to determine
their water-tightness. From these
and from more recent experiments
I believe the following results can
be anticipated :
First, a good oil lining, constructed with heavy asphalt road oil,
applied on the ditch sides and bed
at the rate of about 3 gallons per
square yard, will stop 50 to 60 per
cent, of the seepage. A well-constructed clay puddle lining is as
efficient as a good oil lining. A thin
cement mortar lining about 1 inch
thick, made of I part cement and
4 of sand, will prevent about 75
per cent, of the seepage. A first-
class coucrete lining 3 inches thick,
made of 1 part cement and 2 of
sand and 4 of gravel will stop 95
per cent, of the seepage. A
wooden lining when new is as
efficient as a concrete lining, but
after two or three-years repairs and
maintenance will become an important item, and by the end of 8
or 10 years it will require complete
The cost of an oil lining where
oil can be bought at California
prices is about 1.2 cents per square
foot. Cement mortar lining I inch
thick costs about 3 to 4 cents per
square foot. Cement concrete 2
inches thick costs about 6 cents,
and 3 inches thick about 8 cents a
square foot. The cost of clay
lining depends greatly on the nearness of the canal to suitable clay.
If clay is close at hand it can be
hauled and spread on the canal,
then either tramped in by cattle or
a paying  business.     The  amount worked in by dragging chains over
of money which one is justified in
spending will be in proportion to
the extent of the losses, which depends on local conditions, such as
porosity of the soil, the size of the
canal, the number of seasons the
canal has "been operated, the
amount of silt in the water, the
velocity of flow, the form of ciotfs
section, the depth of water table,
The most valuable general observations as. regards the amount
of these losses are those of the
Irrigation Investigations Bureau of
the U. S. Department of Agriculture.
From series of measurements on
73 ditches in the Western States,
they have found that the average
loss per mile of ditch is 5.77 per
cent, of the entire flow; the
measurements range from a maximum of 64 per cent, per mile to a
slight gain in a few cases. Large
canals in general lose less in pro
portion than small ones. The
measurements show that the loss
per mile averages about I per cent,
for canals carrying 100 cubic feet
per second or more; about 2J per
cent, for canals carrying 50 to 100
cubic feet per second; 4 1-4 per
cent, for canals carrying 25 to 50
cubic feet per second ; and 11 1-4
per cent, for canals carrying- less
than 25 cubic feet per second.
These losses include seepage and
evaporation, but, contrary to the
general belief, the losses of evaporation are insignificant compared
with those of seepage. An unusually large rate of evaporation is
half an inch a day, and is only
reached occasionally. In the San
Joaquin Valley, in California, the
mean evaporation for the hottest
month* was .37 of an inch in 24
hours. Seepage losses are usually
greater than 1 foot in depth per
24 hours, and usually average not
it, at a cost of less than I cent a
square foot; but theie are many
localities where I have seen enough
money spent on clay linings tb put
in a good concrete lining. Wooden
lining has been-used in a few cases,
and the cost bf such a lining built
of 2-inch lumber nailed on sills and
side yokes will not be less than
that of a 2-inch concrete lining,
and not nearly as durable.
The disadvantages of the cheaper'
linings are the following: An oil,
lining stops only a fraction of the!
seepage losses, and while it will re-:
sist erosion well, it probablv will
not prevent the growth of weeds
for more than one season unless a
high velocity is used, and it will
not stop the burrowing of gophers.*)
Another objection is that suitable
oil is often hard to obtain at a
reasonable price. Oil linings have
not been sufficiently tested to determine their durability. To my
knowledge the only examples are
two canals and one reservoir in the
San Joaquin Valley of California
and two reservoirs in Lbs Angeles.
Clay puddle tyill not prevent the
burrowing of gophers, and weeds
grow rapidly, especially since the
velocity of flow must be small in
order not to erode the lining.
A concrete lining has none of
the above disadvantages, and it
meets the requirements of a good
lining better than any other material. The only objection is its
higher first cost. This, however,
can be partly balanced where a
new canal is to be constructed by
using a higher velocity and smaller

Master's Heroic Sacrifice In Behalf
of His Companion — Hero of the
Strathcona Fire  In  1906.
Brave deeds are often done on the
brink of death. Only the other day
the newspapers were full of the dramatic story of the loss of a Japanese
submarine, an accident to which in
manoeuvres off Port Kure sent three
officers and eleven men to their doom.
But before he had been linally overcome by asphyxiation, the lieutenant
in command of the ill-fated boat hud
succeeded in penning u detailed account of the accident, describing tiie
cause, tho steps taken to endeavor
to raise the submarine to the surface,
and the heroism of his crew, and con
eluding with a touching request thai
the Emperor might succour the families of the officers and men. it was

The Stoker's Last Act.
The Paris to 'Bordeaux express is
one of the fastest trains in tiie world.
On the night of March 7th last, it
was roaring along tlie flat straight
stretch which runs for seven mile*
from Saiute Maine to Poictiers at the
rate of sixty-five miles an hour, when
the stoker opened the door of the furnace, and turned to fill his shovel
with coal from the tender.
Suddenly some of the back stud-
bolls gave way. There followed a blast
of steam ami fin aie, and driver and
stoker both were hurled to the floor
of the cab. Horribly burned, the stoker turned and saw the driver lying
apparently dead, while the train rushed on uncontrolled. With a last effort he struggled to his knees, crawled to the throttle, and stopped the
train just as it was entering Poictiers
Station. They found him lying insensible. He rallied sufficiently to tell
what had happened, and then passed
One day towards the end of August.
1906, two German schoolmasters, named Overbook and Kueppers, set out
to climb the Weizsezpetze. The ascent is not accounted a dangerous one,
and the two Germans took no guides.
All went well until, near the summit,
they came to an ice bridge. Kueppers
got across safely, but just as Over-
beck reached the centre the treacherous ice gave way, and he dropped into
the crevasse, and hung there dangling over the darksome depths, suspended by the rope which was attach-
edto his friend's waist.
The Rope of Death.
Out of the chasm below came Over-
beck's voice, "There is only one thing
to do. Cut the rope. I may survive
tlie fall." For a long time Kueppers
resisted. But he was growing weak,
and was numbed with cold. In a
short time the weight of Overbeds
would pull him, too, over the brink.
At, last he was forced to obey his
friend's order. He cut the rope, and,
more dead than alive, hurried away
for help. Alas! when the relief expedition arrived it was only to find
the heroic Overbeck lying dead in his
icy grave. "
The industrial roll of honor is a
long one, and its heroes are found
both on land and sea. On a bitter
winter night in December, 1906, the
Canadian vessel Strathcona was
steaming south from Halifax, N.S.,
with 380 passengers aboard. Suddenly there was a cry of "Fire!" and as
flames burst through the hatches the
passengers came rushing, screaming,
on deck, and made for the boats. But
the sea was too rough for small boats
io live, and the crew held them off,
while the captain ordered the vessel
to be headed for Port Duflerin, the
nearest landing-place.
Full speed was put on,  but this,
naturally, served to fan ihe flames,
and soon the whole after-part of the
ship was a roaring furnace.    Down
j below the firemen toiled like heroes
amid suffocating heat and smoke, but
their danger was not so terrible a3
. that of the man at the wheel.   In spite
of all that could be done, the wheel-
I house was soon a mass of flames, the
f ropes and lashings crumbled to tinder, and before the mouth of the har-
I bor was  reachqtf  the  hero's  clothes
were burning.   Yet he stuck to his
{post until  the  vessel  was beached,
i'lhen he staggered across the charred
I planks, and tell dying.
