Council Meeting
A meeting of the city council
was held last Tuesday evening, the
Mayor and Aid. Leckie, Jones, and
Cox being present. There was
very little business to transact, and
the session was a very brief one.
The minutes of last meeting
having been disposed of, it was
mentioned that there were no accounts to be passed, a very unusual

council were at present taking up
the question of municipal control
of the irrigation system, .and he
and Aid. Jones had formed themselves into a committee to approach
the provincial member on the subject. It might be well if the matter
were brought up before the convention.
" Who pays expenses," asked];
Aid. Cox.
Last time he attended, the mayor
answered, he paid his own, but
now, as the. city was larger, it
might possibly raise the amount.
On the motion of Aid. Cox, seconded by._Aid. Leckie, Mayor
Sutherland and Aid. Jones were
appointed delegates.

Sad Death of Mr. Tom
A distressing accident occurred
last Tuesday, causing the death of
Mr. Tom Hereron, an old timer in
the district, who was found dead
with a broken neck inv the Vernon
road near Ellison. Mr/ Hereron
was driving home in the afternoon
from town to his place at Ellison.
, He was alone at the time, and it is
surmised that the pole of the waggon became disconnected, and the
team starting forward dragged the
unfortunate man to the ground,
Krf.nlrin_r njfl neck in the fall. The
team found their way home alone,
and two of Mr. Hereron's daughters at .once rode back along the
road to town and discovered their
father lying dead near the waggon.
Help was summoned, but it was
too late, life being extinct. The
greatest sympathy is-felt in the clis-
for the bereaved family.
The interment takes place today
at the Catholic cemetery.
Mr. H. H. McLeay, the Montreal agent of the Central Okanagan Lands, Ltd., is arranging for an
excursion partv to Kelowna, taking
in also the Apple Show at Vancouver. A private cat has been secured for the party, which numbers
about eighteen, which will probab-
be run right down to Kelowna,
leaving after a few days for the
coast, and from there returning
direct to Montreal,
- The sad news waa received during the week of the death of Mrs.
F. A. Taylor, who was on a visit tb
the Old Country with her husband.
The death took place last week

short illness.

The new Presbyterian church is
now an accomplished fact, and the
congregation in Kelowna possesses
an edifice of which it might well.
be justly proud. .The handsome
brick building erected at the corner of Bernard avenue and Richter
street at a cdst of nearly $20,000 is
the first really imposing and. permanent church structure in the city,
and the Presbyterians of the district
have every reason to congratulate
themselves upon the result of the
persevering efforts of the past year
or two, prompted as it has been by
an unbounded faith in the future
of the town.
Large Crowds Attend Sunday Services
The dedicatory services were
held last Sunday, and the accommodation, provided was taxed to
its- utmost,' the great crowds of
people who attended testifying to
the interest which the successful
culmination of the project had
awakened in the minds of all
classes and denominations.
The three Sunday services were
conducted by the Rev. Dr. Mackay,
principal of Westminster Hall,
Vancouver, than whom few more
eloquent and forceful preachers
have ever occupied a pulpit in
Kelowna. He was assisted by the
pastor, the Rev. A. W. K. Herdman,
the Rev. D. J. Welsh, of the Baptist
church; Rev, C. W. Whyte, until
recenily Presbyterian minister at
Peachland; the Rev. J. W. David-'
son, of the Methodist church, and
others. A specially augwented
choir, conducted by Mr. J. N.
Thompson, led the singing, which
was of an unusually high order.
At the morning service, when
the doors of the church were
opened for the first time to the
public, every available seat was
occupied some time before the
commencement. Worship opened
by the singing of the Doxology, in
which the whole congregation
joined. Then followed the Scripture sentence and invocation,
Psalm selection and Scripture
reading, after which the choir gave
a spirited rendering of the chorus
from Handel's' Messiah: " Lift up
your heads, O ye gates." A prayer
of dedication was offered by the
Rev. Dr. Mackay, concluding with
the Lord's Prayer in concert. At
the conclusion of an appropriate
and eloquent sermon, the Rev. Dr.
Mackay in a few brief and well-
chosen words, congratulated the
congregation on the successful
achievement of their noble work
in giving, so beautiful a church to
the city of Kelowna. He expressed the hope that as it was a landmark and an architectural feature
of the city, so it might long be a
centre ot influence and power in
the spiritual life of the city.
During the offertory, a voluntary
was given by Mrs. F. G. Davis,
who presided at the organ, followed by the singing of Sullivan's
"The Strain Upraise" by the
A prayer by the Rev. D. J. Welsh,
a hymn and the Benediction
brought,to a close the first service
in the new church.
In the afternoon the usual Sunday
School was abandoned, and a
special children's service given,
at which addresses were delivered
by the Rev. Principal Mackay, and
the Rev. C. W. Whyte. The music,
included a violin solo by Miss
Laidlaw, a cornet solo, "The
Better Land," by Mr. J. N. Thompson, and an anthem by the choir:
" Judge me, O God;"
Although the seating capacity of
the church pYovides for- something;
under 400 persons, it is estimated
that over 600 presented themselves
for the evening service. Seats
were placed in the aisles, and a«
many as possible were crowded
into the main body of the church.
Both porches were filled with people standing, also the vestry at the
side entrance, and many had to go
away altogether, from the impossibility of getting near. A splendid
sermon was preached by the Rev.
Dr. Mackay, which was listened to
with greatv interest by the large
gathering. The choral selections
were exceptionally fine — "The
Heavens are Telling" from Haydn's
" Creation," duet arid chorus " 1
waited for the Lord," and the
" Hallelujah" chorus.
The offerings on the Sunday
amounted to about $600.
Monday's Sapper and meeting
The space at the disposal of the
Ladies' Aid in the old church for
the supper proved ridiculously in-
adequate for the great crowd
which flocked into the little building soon after six o'clock. The
ladies had been busy ~ for some
days previously, and a truly royal
spread had been prepared. There
was no lack of -good fare which
was heartily appreciated by those
who were fortunate enough to get
a seat at the tables. As it was
nearly 400 people partook of the
supper — a fact which speaks
volumes fpr the energetic efforts
and unsparing generosity of the
ladies who worked so hard to
make the event a success. They
are to be congratulated upon
having realized frdm the supper
alone the handsome sum of $ i 71.
The church was again - crowded
for the meeting which followed.
Mr. Geo. E. Boyer, who returned
only last week from a five months'
trip to the Old Country, occupied
the chair.
The meeting opened in the usual
way, with a hymn and prayer, after
which the choir sang " The Heavens
are Telling," from the " Creation,"
in which Mrs. Brooke showed to
considerable advantage in the
soprano solos. Mrs. Brooke is a
new comer to the town, and her
capital voice is already proving a
decided acquisition to local musical circles.
The first speaker was the Rev.
A. W. K. H«rdman,'who expressed
his own and his congregation's
pleasure at the return of Mr. G. E.
Boyer, who had done so much for
the church in the past. He regretted the absence of Dr.. Mackay,
who owing to a previous engagement had been compelled to leave
that afternoon for Penticton. A
letter had been received, he announced, from the Hon. Price
Ellison, enclosing a cheque for
$100 towards the building fund
(applause). He also read a letter
from the Rev. Thos. Greene, regiet-
ting his inability to be present
owing to the sad and unexpected
news of the death of Mrs. F. A.
Taylor, and extending his congrat-
u'ations to the minister and
congregation on the completion of
the new church, which he hoped
would enter upon a new era of
prosperity and usefulness.
Letters of appology and congratulations had also been received
from Rev. C. W. Whyte and Rev.
D. Campbell of Armstrong.
- The chairman, Mr. Geo. E. Boyer,
said it was a great joy to him to
preside at the present, meeting.
He had been looking forward with
the pleasantest anticipations to
seeing Kelowna again, and he had
arrived just in time to witness the
opening of the new church, and to
have the opportunity of seeing all
his old friends gathered together
again. Five months was a long
time to take a holiday, almost too
long. He had, however, had a
most pleasant visit to the Old
Country. He had been renewing
old acquaintances and visiting old
scenes dnce more, and had returned feeling fifteen or twenty years
younger. Continuing his interesting reminiscences of his tour, he
said he had found conditions very
much altered in the Old Country
during his seven or eight years
absence. Unemployment and
poverty were on the increase, and
there was great unrest in the
political life and in the sphere of
labor. All this made one feel that
we had much to be thankful for
out here in British Columbia.
Referring  to  the new building,
he said that, as Presbyterians, they
now had a most beautiful church,
and he was sure they all must feel
sincerely grateful to  the building
committee and  others   who   had
worked so hard to produce it.
He was most enthusiastic in
eulogies of the pastor, the Rev,
W. K.   Herdman,- and   asked
still  greater support and appreciation  for the work which he was
doing for the  church.     He was
most warm, too; in his praise of the
choir, who had, under the direction
of Mr. J. N. Thompson, and along
with the organist, Mrs. F. G.Davis,
made   the musical   part   of   the
services such a splendid success.
Next came a cornet solo, " The
Flight of Ages." by Mr. J. N.
Thompson which was heartily
The Rev. D. J. Welsh, ofthe
Baptist church, next addressed the
gathering. A little over a year ago,
he said, he had occupied on the
site where the church now stood,
a somewhat peculiar position, when-
he assisted at the ceremony of
laying the corner stone of the new
church. He had come that day to
Kelowna, and had not even had an
opportunity of meeting his own
congregation." He had, however,
known Baptists in various parts of
America and Canada, and he had
had no hesitation in expressing the
sympathy of his church people
with the new moyement. And he
now had to convey the greetings
of the Baptists on the completion
of their fine new church. They
would watch with interest the
progress of their work, and would
be glad at all times to help, and to
work together in the right spirit.
Referring to church union, some
day, he said, it might come. He
himself, however, was more eager
for church federation, for the cooperation of the churches in all
Christian work. He wished the
Presbyterian congregation Godspeed and every ^lessing on their
A duet and chorus: " I waited
for the Lord," followed with Mrs.
Jas.- Harvey as soprano and Mrs.
J. N. Thompson, contralto. Both
choir and principles did their work
well, and the gathering was loud
.in ita approval.
The Rev. J. W. Davidson, then
spoke on behalf of the Methodist
church. The Presbyterians had
now builded their church, and he
presented to them the hearty
greeting of his own people. He
was, in a sense, however, sorry to
do so. He would rather have seen
the new church built by a united
Protestantism of Kelowna, who
would have one interest, and one
body. That would certainly come
in time. As it was, he knew it
required no ordinary energy, no
ordinary resoursefulness. no ordinary sacrifice to carry through to
completion a work of this kind.
To the congratulations of the
Methodists he would like lo add
his own sincere personally gooa
Mr. Geo. McKenzie, whose rich
baritone sounded to good advantage in the large new building,
sang " The Eternal City."
The Rev. Mr. Vance, of Rutland,
was then called upon. He could,
he said, o^ly congratulate the
pastor, the building committee and
the congregation on such a splendid building. It had cost a great
deal of energy and sacrifice on the
part of those who had worked for
it, but they had something to show
for it. A good building, however,
he would remind them, did not
make a good church. It was only
a means to an end. He trusted
the present structure 'vould have
long and helpful service.
A chorus by the choir, " Judge
me, O God," was well sung, and
provided effective work for the
male voices.
The Rev. Mr. Conn, brought
congratulations from the friends of
Okanagan Centre. He congratulated the building committee who
he said, were in reality the women
of the congregation. It was the
wife behind the building committee
who deserved credit for the building of the church. There' Was
great concentrated effort represent-
in the fine building in which they
stood. It was the result of much work
and prayer, and noble effort. It stood as
an evidence of faith and as a protest against
sin. He spoke enthusiastically of the
choir and its leader, Mr. J. N. Thompson,
and of the organist, Mrs. F. G. Davis.
They had performed their part of the services splendidly, and deserved all the credit
that could be given to them.
A pretty violin solo was next given by
Miss Laidlaw.
The Rev. Jas. Hood, of Summerland,
gave an amusing address. We were told,
he said, " Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house," etc., but he certainly did
covet Mr. Herdman's church.
Mr. D. W. Sutherland, chairman of the
building committee, presented a brief report of the finances in connection with the
new building. The contract price, he said,
was $15,500. An additional sum of about
$3,500 had been spent in various furnishings, etc., making the cost of the .church
approximately $ 19,000. Of this $ 1,000 had
been donated in furniture, and $10,000 had
been already subscribed, leaving $8,000 to
be borrowed. This they hoped to be able
to pay off in the near future.
The Rev. A. W. K. Herdman, in his
closing address said he had been happy to
hear the members of his congregation .and
the different officers praised for the work
which they had.done. He wished to thank
all who had taken part in the opening services, especially the ministerial brethren
who had so kindly given up their services
to be present with them. He thanked all
who had voluntarily helped the choir, and
others who had worked to make the
occasion successful.

The New Church
The new church is a large brick
and artificial stone stone building,
and has been erected at a cost of
nearly $20,000 exclusive of the
site, which was donated some time
agp.by Mr. A.B. Knox. The architecture is comparatively plain but
of a bold and pleasing design, and
does credit to its architect, Mr. F. W.
Peters, of Kelowna, and to the contractor,
Mr. H. W. Raymer. At the north-west
corner, as shown in the engraving is a
massive battlemented tower and belfry.
The church is lighted on the north and
west by great Gothic windows of tinted
cathedral glass. The two main entrances
are on Richter street, one under the tower,
while a smaller side entrance on Bernard
avenue, provides access to the vestry and
choir. The building is so arranged that at
some future date an addition may be
made on the south for Sunday schools,
etc. The bell which hangs in the tower,
was presented to the church by the
Morrison family in memory of their father,
the late Robert Morrison.
The interior furnishings are of a moat
tasteful and appropriate kind. The pulpit
was the gift of the mayor of Kelowna, Mr.
D. W. Sutherland, The communion table
was given by Mr. and Mrs. Geo. E. Thompson, in memory of theit daugter, Ella.
The communion chairs, by the Sabbath
school scholars, and the organ by the
Young Ladies' Auxiliary' The hooks of
praise were given by Mr. Geo. E. Boyer,
while the Ladies' Aid Society provided
the carpets and the chairs for the choir.
In the current issue of the Saturday Sunset, " Bruce " McConnell
who has been making a tour of the
the southern interior of the province, describes in an appreciative
and enthusiastic manner, his jour-
neyings through the Okanagan valley.
Discussing the subtle facination
inherent in the cry of " Back lo the
land " for the town dweller and industrial drudge, he says:- " Never
before, perhaps, has the " simple
life " appealed to the imaginations
of the people as it does to-day.
Never before apparently have so
many people yearned for the happy mean betwixt poverty and
wealth as they do to-day. It would
seem that many of these people are
finding the conditions they long for
in the Okanagan Valley, that land
of fruit and flowers, of smiling lakes
and blue skies, of varied intt rests
and beautv, in which I have wand- »
ered for the past week."
From Penticton in the south
throughout the whole 140 mile
stretch of the valley he finds "such
a variety of conditions, climatic,
commercial, social and otherwise,,
that almost any preference or taste
of the prospective settler may be
Transportation he regards as one
of our chief problems. "That greater transportation: facilities will have
to be provided for the Okanagan
in the very near future is patent to
the most cursory observer. While
the figures of the present season
are'rioiyet gomplete those in position to know estimate that at least
450 carloads of fruit will be shipped before the season closes. Conservative estimates are.that these
figures will be doubled every two
years as orchards come into bear-
Though he. believes that the
prairie provinces with their great
influx of settlers every year will always prove the great buyers of
Okanagan fruit, yet he wonders
why, when one compares the fresh
Okanagan product with the»flavor-
less trash from the United States
shipped green and ripened in the
crates, there is not more of our valley fruit seen in Vancouver.    ..
He gives a sly dig at the hotels
in the Okanagan where, " although
this is the zenith of the apple harvest and both apples and pears are
at their best, yet on not a single
hotel table in the valley have we
met with fruit fit to eat yet alone fit
to maintain the reputation of that
valley ,for_ these fruits. At the C. P. -
R. hotel at Sicamous, Okanagan
fruits figures on the bill-of-fare and
the sample which was served to
me was a slander on the valley. It
would have b$en very much better
to have left Okanagan out of the
bill-of-fare entirely than to associate it with the miserable stuff served up to travelers under that
Travelers passing through the
country naturally form their impressions and base their judgment of
its products by those with which
they come in contact. If they meet
with poor stuff they naturally can
say nothing good about it and there
is little .doubt that the fallacy which
has been widely published, that
Okanagan apples are inferior to
Ontario fruit has had its origin in
the miserable stuff with which travellers have been served in British
Columbia hotels."
He does not hold with the fallacy
that large capital and equipment
are needed for success in the Okanagan. " If success is measured by
attainment of a moderate income
the establishment of a comfortable
home amid ideal conditions of climate, a life in the open air, employment that calls for a healthy exercise pf muscles and mind, the rear- '
ing and education of a family and
the acquisition of competence in
old age, if that is what is called
success, I know of no spot in Canada where it may be attained more
surely and easily upon a more modest investment than in the Okanagan."

Presbyterian Policy On Temprancc
The General Assembly's Resolution.-
Tlie Assembly would reaffirm the deliverance of former Assemblies that nothing
short of the prohibition of the traffic in
intoxicants for beverage purposes can sat-
s! fy as the goal in temprance reform, and
would recommend our peoplein those provinces where there is no immediate prospect of carrying and enforcing prohibition,
to unitt: with others in working toward thia
end, by: (a) The curtuilnient of the traffic
by local veto; (b)The abolition of the barroom and the public treating system associated therewith, and (c) the prohibition of
the residue of the traffic, with this proviso
that where in cities and towns the said sale
is demanded by a majority of the qualified
municipal electors, such sale shall be conducted under such conditions as will eliminate the element of private gain. Winnipeg
Jsstmhly 1908.
The import of the   resolution;—   It   sets
prohibitron clearly before the public as the
goal in temprance reform,   so   far  as   the
traffic is concerned.    Nothing short of this
can satisfy.
I     It advises Provincial Prohibition as soon
i as public opinion in any province is strong
j enough to compell the Legislature to   en-
i act such a law and to provide for its effec-
; tive enforcement.
Until public opinion is strong enough to
i make the enactment and enforcement of
j prohibition possible, the Assembly advises
patient, persistant effort by local vetocam-
! paigns as the most effective method of cre-
i ating opinion favorable to prohibition, and
| of limiting the traffic to ever narrower
! bounds. In this way, in a comparitavely
I short time, it will be confirmed to the large
i cities and a few other centres where special
■ conditions exist. '
The Assembly advises, the traffic having
been sufficiently limited to make this possible an \ yet not sufficiently to secure and
enforce complete Provincial prohi.ition,
that by Legislative enactment:
(a) All bar-rooms be abolished where
still remaining, putting an end to all drinking on the premises where sold, and the
entire public treating system which is admiringly responsible for a large portion of
the drinking now practised, and
(b) At the same time the licensed shops
wholesale and retail, be supressed also, but
that, ' "~
(c) Cities and towns be allowed, by the
local option method, the right, should a
sufficient-majority of the qualified municipal electors so declare, to have a limited
number of shops authorized to sell liquor
for consumption off the premises, provided
the said sale is conducted under'such conditions as eliminate the element of private
Such by-laws would of course be in
force ouly for a brief period — a year br
two or three as might be determined—unless re-submitted and carried again by the
required  majority,
To what does this commit the church?—
Not to any form of public ownership or
operation or control of intoxicating beverages as against Prohibition. It ts a temporary expident to meet a practical difficulty,
namely the making of prohibition effective
in a large centre if the law is forced upon
it by an outside vote, a majority of its own
electors being opposed to such a measure.
It commits the church, thereforersimply to
giving such centres, under certain restrictions and safeguards, the right of saying
whether they will accept prohibition or
insist on having the sale of liquor in their
midst. It does not concede to such centres
the right of having liquor sold under license
for private gain, under any circumstances,
but only under such conditions as will eliminate private gain.
When such by-laws are submitted to .a
vote of the people, the church is free to
work and vote against the by-law, and
in favor of the general prohibitory law,
and therefore at no stage in the process is
the church put in the position of favoring
t e traffic in intoxicants in any form.

The Way a Carload  of Tramjis
Designated In Mexico.
In Mexico the billing of. tail road
freight requires a knowledge and precision which can only ba .attained.by
years of practice. Thi_ is" doe 'to the
peculiar classification of various articles and the different rates of customs
duties. A case ouce occurred which
severely taxed the ingenuity of the
station agent, although he .finally succeeded in meeting all requirements.
The town war fc overrun with
tramps, and tlie council determined
that steps must be taken to rid the
city of them. It was finally decided
to round,them up and ship them out
of the country. It would lie too expensive tq purchase tickets, so they
concluded to hire stock cars and ship
their tramps as freight.
The cars were procured, an 1 by the
aid of the police the tramps were gathered, but then the question arose as
to how the shipment should be designated on the bill oi lading.
The term "persons" could not he
used, as it would conflict wth the state
law relative to proper accommodation
for the traveling public, and it would
also be in violation of the company's
rules goVernihg the rates of passenger
traffic. ' "Marketable commodities"
would not do, as that would subject
the,.carload to a-- heavy duty upon
crossing the tariff zone. .Again, they
would have to be classified as "perishable" or the dispatcher might order
tbe car sidetracked along the line.
But fortunately there is a customs
law which exempts certain kinds of
curiosities from duty, and So, after
much consideration, the tramps were
billed and forwarded as so many hundredweight of "perishable curiosities
—unfit to eat."
Why  Boiled  Lobster  Is Red.
In all crustaceans, as, indeed, in almost everything in nature, there is a
certain per cent, of iron. Upon boiling the lobster is oxidized. The effect
is largely due also to the percentage
of muriatic acid which exists naturally in the shell. The chemical change
which takes place here is almost similar tb that which occurs in the burning of a brick. In boiling a lobster
its. coat ceases to be a living substance, and to a certain extent it takes
a new character. It is as a brick
would be after burning. This effect
can also be produced by the sun, but
necessarily not so rapid, as the heat
of that luminary, although rhore intense,, is" not Concentrated sufficiently
to produce the result. The sun also
exercises a bleaching influence which
consumes' the oxide almost as fast as
it is formed, leaving the shell white
or nearly pure lime. ^
The,Tomato. '
The tomato, wholesome, toothsome,
capable for such variety of edible use.
as it is, was not found out by man
until comparatively recent times! It
is a native of western South America,
whence it was introduced and cultivated ih Europe during the sixteenth
century. At first its wrinkled fruits
were regarded with suspicion, and it
was grown to be looked at as a curiosity more,than anything else.' Cultivation smoothed out the wrinkles
and developed the tomato so that in
the eighteenth century both yellow
and red varieties were known. There
are many' old people living to-day who
relate that ih their childhood the tomato was'knowh as the7'lqve apple"
and was poisonous if eaten too much

Queer Chinese Headdress.
The female headdress is carried in
some countries to singular extravagance. The Chinese beauty carries on
her head the figure of-a certain bird.
This is composed of copper or of gold,
according to the rank of the person.
The wings spread out and fall over
the front of the headdress and conceal the temples; the tail, long and
open, forms a beautiful tuft of leathers; the beak covers the top of the
nose; the neck is fastened to the body
of the artificial animal by a spring
that it may the more freely play and
tremble at the slightest taotion.

Advertising tales upon application.
The indifference with which
the ordinary citizen regards the
privilege of a vote and a voice
in the management of affairs
in his own city is almost un
accountable. In theory he
speaks of " government by the
people for the people" as a
noble heritage for which our
forefathers poured out their
innocent blood against the
tyrant and oppressor, etc., etc.,
and his democratic soul is filled
with indignation at the mere
thought of government by an
aristocracy, but in practice he
will not walk across the street
to register his vote !
" If you want to vote at the
next municipal election, see
that your name on the list by
November 1 st" is what the
city has been advertising for
some weeks, and so far only
four have responded.
If you own property in the
city and are on the assessment
roll, your name will be placed
on the list by the City Clerk,
provided you have not bought
since the roll was made up, in
which case you will have to
give notice of the purchase.
If you do not own property
but have lived in the city since
before January 1st, and have
paid a road tax or license of
of some kind, except a dog
license, you may vote, but must
make a fresh declaration every
year. The fact that you voted
last year makes no difference.
Better see the City Clerk at
once—he'll tell you what to do.
Forest Reserves
Likely to be  Considerably
Enlarged Soon.
In the report of the Superintendent of Forestry, which forms part
of the annual report of the Dept.
of the Interior, recently published,
are given many interesting details
as to the adminstration and working of the forest reserves.
The most striking development
in regard to the forest reserves is,
of course, the setting aside the
Rocky Mountain forest reserve, a
tract of country aggregating some
14,400 square miles, some of which
is already reserved as National
Parks (i. e., the Rocky Mountains
Park, the Kootenay Lakes Park,
and Jasper Forest Park). The
great importance of this reserve
is due to the opportunity it affords
for the preservation and conserva-
tionof the waters of the riyers which
rise in the Rockies and traverse the
prairie country and whose waters
play so important a role in the fertility of the-soil of this, one of the
richest farming countries in the
world. The forest on the tract consists mainly of lodge-pole (or black)
pine, Engelmann spruce and Douglas lir. Very serious fires have occ-
ured throughout the reserve in times
past but the natural production,
over the greater part af the reserve
at any rate, is abundant.
Further extentions of the reserves
are contemplated, in fact, some of
the lands have -already been reserved from settlement, though not
formally set aside as reserves.
Among the proposed extensions
To the Sprucewoods reserve, 70,-
000 acres.
To the Duck Mountain reserve,
136,000 acres.
To the Cypress Hills reserve, 80,-
000 acres.
To the Beaver Hills reserve, 20,-
000 acres.
Similar action has been taken in
regard to a tract of 5,000 acres
near Spirit Lake, Sask. The foregoing extensions total 305,000 acres,
or over 475 square miles.
A tract of land which includes
Mount Ida and the Fly Hills ( near
Salmon Arm B. C. ) was also inspected in the fall   of   1909,   with   a
view to its being   set  aside   for a
a forest reserve.
Much more interesting information in regard to the reserves and
the other work of the Forestry
Branch is given in the annual report
of the Superintendent of Forestry
above mentioned. Copies may be
obtained on application to R. H.
Campbell, Superintendent of Forestry, Ottawa.

The British Columbia government has a surplus of $2,750,000
for the year which ended on March

greatly augmented during the past
few vears, and notwithstanding
that there is a balance of actual
cash of two and three-quarter
million dollars in the treasury of
the province.

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 beforr the Fourth Annual Convention of the Western Canada Irrigation Association, held
at Kamloopa, B.C., August 3rd, 4th, and 5th, I9IQ,
The earliest use of concrete lin-' jusifiable, it is necessary   to
ings  was   in  Southern   California the  extent  of  the
about 1880, when the increasing
value of water made it necessary
to do- away with losses. Since that
time, practically all of their canals,
which are comparatively small,
carrying usually less than than 100
cubic feet per second, have been
lined with concrete, and in eome
cases replaced by concrete pipes.
Until tecently very little concrete
lining has been done outside of
that region ; but during the last few
years concrete-lined canals have
been constructed on many of the
projects of the U. S. Reclamation
Service and on numerous private
projects*. As. examples: The Modesto System in California has lined
portions of its main canal, 64 feet
wide at the top and 5J feet deep,
with concrete lining 2_s inches thick.
The Lower Yakima Irrigation Company of Eastern Washington has
completed seven miles of concrete
lining. The Burbank Power and
Irrigation Company, also of Eastern Washington, has recently constructed one mile of concrete? lining.
There are also numerous examples
in California, Oregon, Nevada,
Idaho and'other states. — .
While there 'are many ways of
building the concrete linings,.they
are generally constructed according
>to two methods. The first method
is used where the side slopes of the
ditch are flatter than 1 to 1 ; the
second method is used for steeper
side slopes.
To construct linings according
to the first method the canal is
trimmed ready to receive the lining;
then the mortar of concrete is
spread on" the■ sides and bottom
and . plastered • on in a manner
similar to sidewalk: work. To. obtain the right thickness guide strips
are-used. The thickness raTnges
from three-quarters of an inth up
to 3 or 4 inches.
To construct the luting according
to the second method, the canal is
first trimmed, then the wooden form
for the -side lining is placed in
position and the concrete mixture
poured or thrown in the space between the form and the sides of
the earthy ditch. For, canals-less
than 10 feet at the top, usually the
form is a^ wooden trough made of
the same cross section as the
finished concrete-lined ditch. The
thickness bf lining is usually from
2 to'o inchest
The very  thin linings of I inch
or less hkye been used extensively
on   many   systems   of   Southern
California,   and   have.teen  very,
satisfactory;^ As ah  instance the.
Gage. Canal  has been lined with
three-quarters of an inch pf cement
mortar for almost its entire lengtj.
of 20 miles. ..After 10 years of use,
the last four years of which water
was run continually, giving no opportunity for repairs, the total cost
to  repair thoroughly all  sections
was for these four years less than
half of   I   per cent. ^ There is no
doubt in my iriind that such  thin
linings, while helpful, are not strong
enough to be satisfactory, especially
where the...extremes in temperature
are as^ great as in the Northwest.
There is only one example, to my
knowledge, of a thin lining built in
a region where the ground freezes.
That one is in Eastern Washington,
where four miles- of canal were
lined with a lining varying from &
to   1J  inches thick.     When I examined the. lining I tound it rather
badly cracked i   but,  because   of
poor workmanship, it was impossible- to state how much  of the
cracking was due to frost. Although
this lining was not, in mv opinion,
very satisfactory, it was nevertheless,
helpful    in    preventing   seepage
losses, for before its construction it
was impossible to carry water over
this stretch without .losing   most
of it.
As a guide for the proper thickness for concrete linings in the
Northwest, I would recommend
ususllyuinot. less than. 2 inches for
gtoall Janals, and preferably 3
ini&|&|7'^ere are many localities
wb«"C;3-inch concrete linings have
'l)e.en used with entire success, even
where subject to frost. No matter
what the thickness is, unless the
concrete is reinforced with steel, or
expansion joints provided, cracks
are to be expected. These will
usually be fine cracks occurring at
more or less regular intervals, and
the leekage through them will be
small' the cracks often silting up.
For better appearance and also to
distribute the crack at uniform
intervals, the lining should be laid
in sections 6xto 8 feet long.
To   decide   intelligently
canals should lined with concrete,
.and to know what expenditure is
seepage losses
and the value of the water which
is  lost,  also  the damage done by
seepage water.    If the value of the
water only is considered, then one
is  justified   in  expending,  for the
improvements  of   the   canals   by
lining,, a capital    whose   interest,
added to the depreciation, is equal
to   the  annual  value of the water
loss.     Accompanying benefits are
the prevention of land waterlogging,
the minimum.danger of breaks and
the prevention of dan.ages to crops,
because of interruption in flow.   As
an instance, if a canal carrying 100
cubic feet per second loses   1   per
cent,  per- mile  by   seepage,   the
water lost in one irrigation season
of  five  months  is  over 300 acre
feet per mile of canal.    This water
represents a value of $450, on a
basis  of $ 1.50 an acre foot.    To
save  this   water   we    would   be
justified in spending a sum" whose
interest, added to the depreciation,
is equal to the above sum.    As depreciation   on   a   good   concrete
lining and interest would not exceed 7 per cent, the value ot the
water lost would represent an investment pf $6,400 per mile. Since
a   3-inch   concrete lining could be
constructed  for $6,000  per mile,
the   above   sum    is   more    than
sufficient.      -
The assumed seepage loss of 1
per cent, is often exceeded with
small canals, and on most irrigation
systems there are always some
sections of canals which would
warrant concrete lining. With the
increasing price of water, and with
the development of water by
storage and pumping, which is
most always expensive, I believe
the time will soon come when
many of our irrigation canals will
be concrete-lined. 77.7.
Concrete pipes for the  conveyance of water, where the quantity
of water is  not large, have'some
advantages .over .canals.-They do;
awav   with   the    road ..crossings
which are necessary with" canals;
they do not occupy any land which
is wasted; they do not collect the
dirt  and  rubbish that fall in open
canals.     They can  also  be used
under light pressures, and take the
place; of canals all in fill or flumes
on  low  trestles.     The   argument
that they also prevent evaporation
has hot much weight, for we have
seen that the losses due to evaporation  are  negligible.     These  advantages  have  led  to  the use of
concrete pipes up to the sizes of
3 or four feet in preference to concrete-lined  canals.     This   is   the
case with "many of the canals and
laterals of many  of the  irrigation
companies of Southern California.
For large quantities of water the
cost of concrete pipes is prohibitive.
Concrete pipes   are   especially
valuable 'for the   conveyance   of
small   quantities   of   water   over
rough lands, but the largest use of
them is for the smaller laterals of
the irrigators.   In Southern California hundreds of miles of cement
pipe have been used for the distribution, systems ..to... prevent -the
losses in conveyance, to  facilitate
the  distribution  of water, and to
prevent waste in its application to
the land.
The measurements of the United'
States Irrigation Investigation Bureau show that the losses in conveyance are much greater fpr small
ditches than large canals. For this
redson the largest losses are often
in the ditches of the irrigator after
he takes the water from the canals
of the company. Other important
losses are in the spreading of the
water on the land.
I shall not discuss the different
methods of application to the land,
but will confine myself to furrow
irrigation and show the economy
of-the use of concrete pipe distribution systems over older methods. I do not intend to infer that
it is the only method of irrigation
to which pipe systems are adapted,
for where water has to be handled
ih small heads, as in Southern
California, it is equally well adapted to alfalfa and other crops.

Now-a-days melodrama, taken univer
sally, although perhaps unfairly as a whole
is repulsive to many. Some play-goers
will no longer stand for the mortgage-stealing plot; they will not put up with the
proverbial mother-in-law furnishing all the
comedy; nor will they remain content with
but half dozen blue bloody murders to
bring about a happy reconciliation and
grand finale. The days of the barn storm-
era are over. The villain no longer " pur
sues her,7 but has shaved off his mustache,
pawned his walking stick, and taken the

To-day is the day of the " problem play."
iust what a problem play is, is still a prob-
em. However, the after effects are usu
ally a depressing feeling about your dis
position, and a dark brown taste in your
mouth. When the curtain goes down after
the suicidal shot, which, although you have
expected it for the past ten minutes, has
shattered your solution of the question all
to smithereens; when you rise from your
seat, put on your hat, and forget to assist
your partner with her opera cloak, and
then walk out of the side entrance, not
daring to look at your fellow sufferers in
the face; it is one best bet that the current
bill is what they call a problem play.
Shakespeare is still holding down the
boards, but the high class verdict of the
appreciative few is overwhelmed by the
vote of the groundlings and gallery-gods
who voice their criticism during the progress of the play, with such encouraging
remarks as " Pipe de guy wid de Marcel
wave," " Git on t' de loidy's kamona," all
the which, of course, add interest to the
particular hero or heroine of the hour.
The question is: What kinb of a play will
please every ticket buyer that passes the
door, and also those critical few who are
lucky enough to come in one " paper ."
That clever Farcial Comedy '* A BACHELORS HONEYMOON" that is to appear at
the Opera House an Nov. 3rd will answer
the question.       See if it doesn't.
