A letter was received from H.
Bose, secretary of the Union of
B. C. Municipalities, acknowledging
receipt of names of delegates to
the coming convention at Salmon
Arm, and enclosing copies of the
minutes of the executive committee
and some proposed amendments
to the Municipal Clauses Act from
the B. C. Good Roads Association.
Dr. A. H. Huycke was appointed
Medical Health officer for the city
during the absence of Dr. B. F.
Boyce.
It was then moved and seconded
that By-law No. 60, to regulate the
city's waterworks be read a second
time, and the same be considered
clause by clause in a committee of
die whole council.
The meeting then adjourned
until Monday next, Nov. 14th, at
8 p.m., the council going into committee on the Waterworks By-law.
Suicide at West Bank
At about eleven o'clock last
Sunday morning Dr. Keller was
hastily summoned across the lake
to attend Mrs. Atelle McDougal,
widow of ./Eneas McDougal, a one
time famous hunter and trapper of
the district, who the messenger said
attempted suicide by shooting herself through the head. The woman
was in a bad condition on his
arrival, having evidently been shot
through the mouth, the bullet
coming out at the back of the neck,
and in spite of careful attention
died the next morning.
An inquest was held at the
Court House last Tuesday afternoon before Coroner Morris, of
Vernon, and from the evidence it
appears that her son, August McDougal, was aroused at about 8
o'clock Sunday morning by cries
from his mother, and going into
the kitchen found her lying on the
floor bleeding from the mouth, and
a small 22 rifle lying in front of
her.
Nothing could be extracted from
the witnesses to account for the
act and a verdict of suicide was
rtturnid.
The magnificent success which'
has attended Kelowna's exhibit at
the first Canadian National Apple
Show at Vancouver has furnished
still another object lesson to the
world in general, and to prospective fruitgrowers in particular that
the Krlowna district, of all places
in the province, is preeminently
suited to the cultivation of what
has been rightly called " the king
of fruits." Placed alongside the
products of all the principal apple j
growing sections of the American
continent, our fruit has stood the
test, and demonstrated beyond dispute that be it due to soil, or climate, o.r sunshine, or a combination
of all three, there are no apples
grown which, for quality, flavor,
size, or color, can claim superiority
over those grown in the Kelowna
district.
Though the previous remarkable
achievements of Kelowna apples
when placed in open competition
at Spokane, New Westminster, and
other places had warranted the
expectation that some honors would
be won at the great show just over,
yet this latest triumph is a matter
for sincerest congratulations not
only to the Board of Trade, under
whose auspices the exhibit was
mainly gathered together by Mr.
F. R. E. DeHait and Mr. B. Mc
Donald of the Farmere' Exchange,
and to the packers of the fruit,
Messrs. Jack Sewell, J. Gibb, and
Norman Lloyd, the excellence of
whose work has contributed in no
small degree to the success, but to
the growers, whose careful and?jin-1
telligent cultivation, aided by iocol"j
conditions, has produced fruit bf
so fine a quality. The energy and
skill which Mr. DeHart has dispay-
ed in the engineering of the project,
in the gathering together of the
fruit and its artistic display at the
show, would, of course, have been
of littte avail without the grower to
furnish the winners. A success of
this kind is, or should be, a stimulus to ejtch individual orchardist to
do his level best to bring evfery
tree in his orchard up to exhibition
standard.
The show itself, universally admitted to have been the greatest
and best apple show ever held,
has marked an epoch in the history
of fruit-growing in the province
and the Dominion. Judges and
visitors from all parts have been
enthusiastic and unanimous in their
praises of the amazing aggregation
of choice fruit displayed at Vancouver last week. East and west
on both sides of the line sent of
their best, and competition generally was of the keenest description.
Kelowna's contribution was sent
down principally by the Board of
Trade. Mr. B. McDonald took
charge of the carload entry, which
was packed at the Farmers' Exchange under the care of Mr. Jas.
Gibb. Mr. F. R. E. DeHart was
responsible for District Display,
the Limited, or "Two-two" displays. Mr. DeHart also entered
privately on behalf of various growers in several box and plate classes.
Mr. John Conlin, one of our most
successful growers, also entered
with great success in several of the
box and plate classes.
Grand Sweepstakes
The premier prize in the apple
show—the Grand Sweepstakes of
$1,000 ($500 of which was given
by the Central Okanagan Lands,
Ltd.), and $100 gold medal—went
to Kelowna, whose car of Jonathans
has been pronounced by each of
the judges to be the finest car of
apples ever shown at any exhibition. In practically every respect the apples were perfect. Out
of a maximum of 1000 marks possible, the exhibit was awarded 970.
■ ln speaking with Mr. Martin Burrell, M. P., one of the judges, after
the score cards had been handed
in, stated that only for the fact that
according to the rules of the
American   Pomplogical    Society,

Kelowna's Winnings:
FIRST SWEEPSTAKES PRIZE of $1,000 and $100 Solid Gold
Medal for finest carload of apples in the Show. This prize
was won by a magnificent car of Jonathans, gathered
together by Mr. B. McDonald of the Farmers' Exchange,
and packed by Mr. Jas. Gibb. The exhibit was declared
almost perfect in every respect. It contained 600 boxes,
each holding exactly 120 apples, thus securing absolute
uniformity, the style of pack being the same for every box.
Only those who have the packing of cars of apples know
what it means to secure such uniformity as that.
FIRST PRIZE OF $1,000 FOR DISTRICT DISPLAY and
$100 Solid Gold Medal. The winning of this coveted
prize is a distinct tribute to the quality of Kelowna fruit.
Kelowna's exhibit was one of the simplest in the Show, but
the quality of the fruit was unexcelled, and the high scoring
for quality, color, condition, size and uniformity gave it the
premier award.
SECOND PRIZE OF> $125 FOR LIMITED DISPLAY or
"Two-two Exhibit," as some call it. This exhibit is limited
to two boxes, two barrels, two baskets, two jars and two
plates. It was really a contest on artistic arrangement, 60
per cent, of the marks going for airangement and decoration, 20 per cent, for freedom from blemish, and 20 per
cent, for color.

SECOND PRIZE OF $50
Mr. G. H. E. Hudson.
in Photographic Display, won by
which places the Jonathan apple at
a disadvantage with other varieties,
the exhibit would have been
awarded the full maximum of
marks.
The car also took the first prize
of $500 in the straight Jonathan
class, but was ineligible to receive
the cash, owing to winning the
sweepstakes. A remarkable feature
about these apples was that not
only in shape and color were they
uniform, but in each of the 600
boxes there were exactly 120 apples
not one more or one less in any
box.
" The best I have ever seen," was
Chief Judge Prof. H. E. Van De-
man's comment.
Kelowna First in District Display
The first prize in this was $500
(afterwards increased to $1,000 bv
a special donation from the National Rescources Security Company),
and $ 100 gold medal. Kelowna's
display was one of the simplest on
show, but scored well, owing to the
high quality of the fruit. It consisted of a sloping violet-covered
background on which the boxes
were arranged in tiers. The whole
was roofed with a pergola, supported on white fluted columns and
decorated with maple leaves and
flowers.
Gratifying Success in Ten-box Display
A pleasing feature and one which
called forth no little comment was
the fact that out of eleven classes
in the ten-box display, Kelowna
secured prizes in no fewer than
eight pf them; including five first
prizes.
Altogether Kelowna has brought
home no less than $3151 in cash,
four gold medale, two of them
valued at $100 each, and four silver medals. Seventy prizes in all
have been secured: thirty-six firsts
twenty-two seconds, and twelve
thirds.
Medals were won for distinction
in several lines: for most entries in
all classes, for most first prizes in
the ten-box displays and for most
prizes in the plate section. The
special gold medal, value $125 for
the most first prizes won by a
Canadian exhibitor, is especially
valuable.
Mr. C. E. Weeks, of Benvoulin,
won the $50 gold medal offered
by the management as second
prize in the " biggest apple " in the
world contest, and Mr. G. H. E.
Hudson, who took down a display

Government Hydro-
graphic Surrey.
Provincial Government surveyors have practically completed for
the season their work in connection
with the hydrographic surveying
of the irrigible lands of British Columbia. This season three parties
commenced work in connection
with this important undertaking in
the Okanagan district, and next
year a Province correspondent was
informed, la/ger parties will in all
probability be sent out throughout
the entire province.
The hydrographic survey of the
irrigation land is the preliminary
step in the elaboration of the Government's policy to see that there
is a fair distribution of water among
the settlers in the great fruit and
agricultral dry belt of the province,
explained Mr. J. C. Dufresne, who
is in charge of the survey party in
Southern Okanagan; the second
step was the formation of a commission with powers of adjudication in connection with all water
records in the province. The board
has held several sittings in connection with questions of records for
power purposes and when the hydrographic surveys are completed
will be furnished with material
which will be used as a basis for
deciding whether or not any given
setder is entitled to a certain water
supply. This policy of the Provincial Government, which aims at
a fair distribution of water among
the ranchers of the dry belt, will
sound the death knell to the "water
hogs" as those ranchers are called
who control whole creeks for their
own benifit. The Government
policy will not of course interfere
with private rights which have
been acquired by purchase or
otherwise.

John Gelatly happened a very
painful accident last week whilst
riding through the bush after some
horses. He was in a battered condition when found, his face being
fearfully bruised and cut. He was
unable to say how it had happened, except that at first he must
have struck a limb and knocked
off his horse. Mrs. Gelatly was
quite prostrated with the shock,
coming as it does after their sad
bereavement recendy.
Messrs. E. C. Scott & Co., who
have been delayed in the opening
of their new store for some time
owing to the non-arrival of their
stock, have at last got word of its
arrival. The store in the Keller
block has been in the hands of the
carpenters for some time past, but
now all is in readiness, and as soon
as possible, the stock will be unloaded from the car and placed on
the shelves. A specialty is being
made of houseeold and kitchen
requirements, and a great variety
will be shown. The business is to
be run on a cash basis, cutting out
the wasteful expense of the credit
system. Tuesday is the date fixed
for the opening.

The War Against The Saloon :
Enlist!
With unanimity inspired of God, the Old
Testament prophets and New Testament
apostles are urgently hostile to the sin of
intemperance. Hence we are in line with
the most honorable, the most humanitarian
and the most holy, when we enlist in the
ranks of total abstainers, and work for the
abolition of the traffic in strong drink. The
specific reasons for enlisting are sufficiently
clear.
1. Drink degrades manhood. Manhood
may be described as that condition which
is the accompaniment of, and the effect of,
a sound mind in a sound body. Saloon
alcohol and kindred poisons defile the
body nnd weaken it, so that its functions
are interfered with. Alcohol is not an aid
to the muscular system, but an enemy.
Scientific investigation has established this
to a conclusion. And because of the intimate interrelation between the body and
brain, this poison pollutes the nervous system, pulls reason from its seat, and unchains the brute nature that is in man.
When one is drunk, he is either violent
and dangerous, or simpering and redicu-
lous. The gutter seems ' as. desirabje as
his own home. This is degradation, and the
cause of it ought to be abolished,
2. Drink disrupts society. " Society is the
collective body of persons composing a
community, especially when considered as
| j subjects of civil government." Into this
community we admit an agent that causes
disorder, because it robs men of honor.
Because of it the community is filled with
shame. Evil is the same as good to the
victim of the spirit of wine. The average
saloon is a hotbed where vicious ideas are
planted and nourished. Every commandment in the decalogue is broken by the
work .of the saloon. By the tears of the
friend of the drunkard, by the loss of
wealth to the land, by the menace to the
young who are in the path of this curse,
you are called to enlist against the saloon.
Drink dishonors Qod. We honor Him,
when we trust, worship and serve Him.
How can one do any of these, when he is
in the thrall of drink > An attitude of indifference to the saloon is the depth of impiety, because it is a tacit admission that
men can dispense with purity, wisdom
and devotion to God. In God's name enlist I He demands purity of life in our
bodily habits and in our thinking. We are
required by Him to seek peace and pursue
it. He has commanded us to remove the
stumbling blocks from the path of the
weak and the young. The saloon embodies the spirit of antagonism to all these
requirements, aad is an active agent in
defeating the efforts of men to " live pure,
speak true, right wrong."
The saloon is acknowledged to be a
chief cause of poverty, crime and the debasement of society. It is everywhere the
foe of the Christian' church, and hinders
what the church- seeks to do to uplift mankind. It can be overcome only by those
who have nothing- to do with that by
which the saloon lives, who give, by example and word and action and the weight
of their influence against it. Dunning.
In England, in one year, twenty-five
.persons were known to have died of hydrophobia, and thirteen hundred and fifty-
six died of delirium tremens in the same
year. The authorities shot the mad dogs
and muzzled the others.
Canada spends $77,000,000. per year in
strong drink, and $61,000,000. are lost
through the drunkenness of workmen who
are employed in industries.

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, E.G., August 3rd, 4th. and 5th, 1910.
(Concluded)
The cost of repairs of these
structures after they haye been
constructed three or four years
becomes quite an item, and at the
end of six or eight years for pine,
and eight to ten years for redwood,
complete replacing is necessary.
The annual cost of repairs and
maintenance averages usually about
5. per cent, for the first three years
and 15 per cent, for the next four
or five years, averaging about 10
to 12 per cent, for the entire life of
not over ten years. In addition to
this should be added the cost of
renewal, which if distributed over
ten years will amount to) 0 per
cent, per year. The life of well-
constructed redwood flumes and of
wooden stave pipe is greater and
may be as long as 20 years, but is
usually 12 to 16 years, 0 with practically no repairs the first five to
eight years, but with considerable
repairs afterwards, averaging not
less than 8 per cent, yearly for the
entire life. The cost of renewal
distributed over the 16 years
amounts to 6 per cent, per year. If
we assume the interest on the
capital invested to be. 6. per cent.,
then the total annual cost for the
structures of the first group is not
less than 26 per cent, of the first
cost, and for the second group 20
per cent.
Concrete structures, if properly
constructed, will last forever;   but
assuming-depreciation and repairs
at 2 per cent, gives a total annual
cost of 8  per cent, as compared
with  26 per   cent,   for   wooden
structures of'the first group/ and
20 per cent for wooden structures
of  the  second  group.     Based on
these figures 'concrete   structures
are more  economical if their first
cost is less than 3 1r4 times the cost
of wooden- structures; of the;first
group, and 2 J-2 times the cost of
wooden structures of the second
group.    However, the actual cost
of   many   concrete   structures
much less than would be given by
such ratios, and is often  only a
little higher than wooden structures.
This is especially true of concrete
built partly in the ground, for they
require  only  simple   forms,   and
when these forms can be used over
many   times,   as   where    several
structures of the same size are required, the cost is greatly reduced.
For illustration, on the Orland project, in California, the average cost
of several small drops was $32.82 ;
the estimated  cost for a wooden
structure of the same size is $27.94,
or. 1,5 per cent. less.- The average
cost of 60 concrete  turnouts was
$25.50, as compared with $19.80,
the estimated cost of wooden turnouts, which was 20 per cent. less.
On the University Farm at Davis,
California, a concrete check gate
cost about 50 per cent, more than
wooden    ones.     The    Arkansas
Valley Sugar Beet and Irrigated
Land Company of Colorado have
during the last few years constructed some very interesting reinforced
concrete structures.    The cost of
two large reinforced concrete drops
wm $131 per foot of fall, and the
corresponding, cost of a series of
substantial   wooden    drops   was
$ 120 per foot of fall.   The wooden
structures were built in 1899, but
in  1904 were in such poor condition that the operation of the
canal at full supply caused some
uneasiness for fear of breaks, and
they required   complete' renewal
two years afterwards, making their
life about seven years.
In a general way it can be stated
that, as a rough approximation,
wooden structures built in contact
«vith the ground, such as gates,
drops, etc., will cost in place, including excavation and backfilling,
from $40 to $50 a thousand. Small
reinlorced concrete structures of
the simplest type will cost $10 to
$12 a cubic yard, ordinary reinforced concrete structures $12 to $16,
and elaborate structures with thin
reinforced walls $15 to $20.
Usually a structures requiring
1,000ft. of lumber can be built with
about 4 to 5 cubic yards of concrete,
and the concrete structure will cost
from 25 to 50 per cent. more.
With the structures of the second
group, that is, wooden flumes and
wooden stave pipes, thei comparison
is not quite so favorable to concrete
as with the other structures. This
is because of their longer life as
compared with the wooden structures in contact with earth, and to
the greater difficulty in constructing
them of concrete. The cost per
cubic yard of concrete is considerably greatly, especially for flumes
crossing canyons and deep depressions, because this requires expensive forms to support it during j
construction and some skilled labor.
For that reason the cost of concrete flumes may be as great as three
times the cost of a wooden flume,
in which case a wooden flume or
a steel flume may be more economical, at least until the price of
lumber increases. But there are
conditions which will favor the use
of concrete, for instance, the Modesto and Turlock systems of California have replaced all their old
bench flumes, which aggregate
several miles, running on the side
hills by concrete channels formed
by means of a wall on the down
hill aide, a slope lining on the up
hill side and a concrete floor . in
between. This not only did away
with the high cost of repairs and
renewals, but has paid for itself in
the additional security, because a
break in their main canal has meant
interruption of delivery of water,
and has caused great damage to
crops. As a rule, a concrete flume
supported on columns should not
cost over 2 to 2J times the cost of
a wooden flume.
As regards reinforced concrete
pipes compared with wooden stave
pipes, several of them have been
built by the Reclamation Service,
and a few on private projects, and
their first cost is generally 11-2
times the cost of wooden_ stave
pipes. They are therefore more
economical, and should be used in
preference. .They are, however,
limited to moderate heads. The
maximum head to which they have
been submitted successfully is
about 100 feet. A large reinforced
concrete syphon in Spain, 13 feet
in diameter and 7 inches thick, is
under a head of 97 feet. On the
Umatilla project in Oregon reinforced concrete pipes 4 feet in
diameter, 3 inches thick, have been
tested successfully for pressures
equivalent to 100 feet heads. For
even these moderate heads careful
work is necessary.
To summarize the above it may
be stated that, in a general way,
with the exception of some flumes,
concrete structured will cost from
1 1-4 to 1 1-2 times the cost of
wooden ones. Since the large
annual cost tor repairs and renewals
pf wooden structures makes it
economical to spend for concrete
structures 2 1-2 to 3 1-4 times the
price paid for wooden structures,
in nearly every case a concfete
structure is more economical, and
will cut the total annual cost of
repairs, renewals and inrerest into
one-half.
Another advantage of concrete
structures which I have not emphasized is the additional security obtained, which is worth considering.
7 During the last two years some
doubt: has been cast upon the
durability of concrete, because of
its disintegration by the effects of
alkali. So far all that has been
published can be reduced to the
following facts:
1st Out of all the many concrete structures, including those on
the 25 projects bf the U.S. Reclam-
otion Service, constructed in 13
Statesi and- territories, there are only
two projects, one in Montana and
one in Wyoming, where the failures
of concrete structures have occurred. The only other recorded instances are some sewers in Montana and some concrete drainstiles
in Colorado.
2nd. The disintegration seems
to take place where the structures
are in contact with strong alkali
water of a peculiar composition,
and occursy where the water permeates the concrete mass and is
evaporated, leaving the salts in the
pores of the concrete.
3rcl. Black alkali seems to have
no harmful effect, and the disintegration ii caused probably by
only eome of the white alkali salts.
Wherever disintegration has occurred the
alkali salt* are sulphates, v. itn magnesium
sulphate predominant.
As against these few failures there are
hundreds of examples of concrete irrigation
structueres where alkali has had no effect.
Nevertheless, where the sulphates are
it is good policy, to experiment on a small
scale irv those localities before works involving large ampuhts of money are built,
and to take all known precautions in the
construction. At present the best known
means to prevent disintegration are:
1st. To make the concrete as nearly
impervious aa possible.
2nd. To remove the alkali water where
practicable by drainage.
3rd. To use oome cement which will be
moat resittont to alkali.
The Reclamation Service is. now ex,
penraeAting with the use of a speciul
cement, and the Geological Survey is
carrying on a aeries of experiments which
it it hoped will help to solve the problem.

months was that of having the Williams'

at Simpson.s Auditorium, Monday and
Tuesday evenings of .this week, to large
and appreciative audiences. The entertainment deserves to be reccomended as one
af the greatest before the public to-day.
Eacn singer is an artist, being potsesed
with refinement and "style, perfect sweetness of voice from top to bottom, intelligence ih phrase and naunce, and acquaintance with the correct manner of delivering

School Children
School   children 'suffer   more   from   their   eyes
than you have any idea.
Just watch  that boy or   girl   of, yours   and   if
they complain   of   their   eyes   after   studying   a
short while, have Knowles test them after   the
methods adopted in New York.
It  is  better to  have the   children   wear   glasses
for a while   now,   than   suffer   all   their   lives
through the neglect of their parents.
