The use of barbed wire along
the sidewalks in town came in for
some strong condemnation.
Aid. Cox said he had noticed in
several parts of the town barbed
wife close up to the sidewalks. In
many places it was in bad repair,
and ladies were continually tearing
, their dresses with it, especially on
a windy day. It is < dangerous and
highly objectionable, and something should be done to have it
removed.
Aid. Leckie pointed out that now
the pound by-law wa&more strictly
r enforced, there wasreally no 'need
'■$ fo'rthe'^barbed; wire?- -Wfff#_i, as
there was very  little   danger   to
gardens from straying cattle.
77- It was eventually-decided that
the/police be instructed  to  notify
all owners of barbed wire fence
adjoining the roads to have the
offending material removed.
Mayor Sutherland said that such
a notification would be sufficient,
but if not then they would have to
put through' a by-law dealing with
the matter.
Mayor Sutherland, who in company with Aid. Jones had attended
last week the convention of the
Union of B. C Municipalities at
Salmon Arm, reported that two
very interesting and profitable days
had been spent. They had had
the opportunity of rubbing shoulders and exchanging ideas with
representatives of other iriunicipal-
ities in all parts of the province.
Several interesting matters had
been brought up for consideration.
One very important question was
a proposal that rural municipalities
should have the powei to invest;
their sinking funds in farm lands in j
the vicinity. At present the city
had no power to invest funds except in a chartered bank, at the
regular rate of interest. The city
was now getting only 4 per cent,
on its money, whereas it might
possibly get 8 per cent. This
would mean a considerable saving
■ to the ratepayers—something like
$600 per year. By investing in
farm lands the city would also be
helping the surrounding districts.
The question of expropriation of
water records in a municipality for
irrigation purposes was also brought
up by Aid. Jones and himself, and
as several influential men had been
interested in the proposal he
thought it quite probable that the
recommendation forwarded to the
government would very soon be
put into force.
A recommendation was also a-
dopted that cities have power to
: pass a-geheral by-law consolidating
their debentures, thus putting all a
city's indebtedness into one. A
resolution giving city councils
control of police and licensing
commissioners was also passed.
The Union of B.C. Municipalities,
concluded the mayor, was doing a
very good and useful work m the
province. Most of the amendments
to the Municipal Clauses Act during the past few years had been
recommended bv the convention.
Aid. Jones said there had been
considerable) discussion on the
problem of homes for old people,
and also on the government assuming control of Tuberculosis Institutes.
All had been of the opinion, said
the mayor, that the government
should take hold of the institution
both for advanced
and incipient cases. The idea was
for the government to pay two-
thirds of the cost, and cities and
district municipalities one third.
Aid. Leckie remarked upon the
large number of consumptives who
were corning to B. C, attracted by
the favorable climate. He thought
it was necessary that some kind of
regulations in connection with the
hotels should ).e adopted. The indiscriminate mingling of consumptive guests with others was a source
of considerable danger.
Aid. Jones said there had been
a good deal of discussion at the
convention on the home for consumptives at Tranquille. There
had been some of the delegates
who held the view that if the I
government provided a proper
plaice for the treatment of. consumptives it would cause such to
flock into the province. It had
also been .mentioned -.that the
Hindoos were remarkably subject
to consumption.
Another important matter, said
mayor Sutherland, which had been
introduced at the convention both
last year and this had reference to
the election of aldermen. , It was
proposed that, in order to make a
council more continuous, the aldermen should be elected for a terrrK|
of two years, so arranged that half
retire one year and half the year
following.
It was also mentioned that our
town had received representation
on the executive committee of the
association,' Mayor Sutherland, said
Aid. Jones, polling the highest vote
of any member of the committee
appointed.
Aid. Leckie reported that in
reply to the application for tenders
for wood for the power house two
had been received. The lowest
was from Geo. L. McGuin, who
offered to supply green fir and
pine mixed at $4 per cord.
Aid. Jones asked how that would
compare with coal as fuel.
Aid. Leckie replied that they
could not very well burn coal, as
the boilers were fitted with wood
grates. He had been getting together information on the subject,
and had been advised that nothing
but trouble - would ensue from an
attempt to burn hard coal or hard
coal slack.
Some little discussion followed
as to the relative cost and efficiency
of coal and wood as a fuel.
< Aid. Cox expressed the view that
the matter of grates to the boiler
should be gone into, as some day
owing to shortage of wood they
would be faced with the necessity
of burning coal,
Aid. Leckie said that as soon as
the railway line can.e in here, coal
would be hauled in very much
cheaper. He expressed the view
that the present power outfit was
very wasteful. There were hours
during the night when the load was
very,light, but the large plant had
to be kept going just the same'at a
big expense. He suggested a
smaller supplementary plant to
take care of the night load. The
saving thus effected would pay fpr
the additional plant in two years.
The smaller generator might also
be kept going during the day, supplying power to the city for a
number of purposes.
Returning to the fuel question
Aid. Leckie said that 100 cords of
wood represented an investment of
$400. There was fuel on hand for
another two months, but he thought
it would not be wise to let it run
out.
The fuel-would not be necessary
for this year, said Aid. Jones, but
they must make some provision
for next January.
Mayor Sutherland remarked that
the engineer claimed they  were
running with two-thirds the fuel of
last year owing to keeping the
boilers cleaner.
The following motion was passed : " That we accept the tender of
G. L. McGuin for 100 cord* of fir
and pine wood at $4 per cord delivered. Quality to be approved
by the chairman of the power and
light committee."
By-law No. 80, known as the
City of Kelowna Water Regulation
By-law, was then read a third time,
and will be submitted to the city
solicitor before being finally passed
by the council.
The by-law was framed for the
better regulation of the rates and
conditions of service of the city's j
water works. . The following are
the rates laid down in the by-law:
For users having a meter, a minimum charge of $1.60 is made,
entitling user to 4000 gallons.
From 4000 to 14,000 gals., the
charge is 20c. per 1000 ; over 14,-
000 gals.. 16c. per 1000.
A flat rate for those having no
meter has been fixed for dwelling
houses, stores, and other services
not specially mentioned, at $ 1.60
per month. Hotels are charged
$12 per month and 20c. additional
foi" every bedroom; restaurants,
$3.20; laundries, $5.00; barber
shops, ,$1.60 first chair, and 50c.
for each additional chair. A discount of 25 per cent, is to be
allowed off these rates if paid
within 15 days.   7
A fee of $5 is to be charged for
the laying of the service pipe from
the main to the boundary oi lot.
It is to be made unlawful for any
consumer to sell or give away
city water, to permit anyone to
carry it away, to supply it for the
use and benefit of others, or to
wrongfully waste it. A maximum
penalty of $50 is fixed for infringements. " ""'A,
It was mentioned that the rates
proposed were low in comparison
with other cities.
Aid. Leckie expressed the fear
that probably they might be too
low, more especially if the ci^y had
to face the problem of buying
expensive fuel. ■ ■
Mayor Sutherland announced
that next week a by-law for the
regulation of the Electric light
service would be introduced.
The meeting then adjourned
until Monday next, Nov. 21st,
at 8 p.m.
Growers of the Winning Fruit
Orchardists of the Kelowna District Who Produced the Magnificent Prize-winning Fruit for the National Show
Kelowna has during the past few
d.iys been probably the most talked
of city in the province.    The great
success of Kelowna's  fruit at the
National   Apple Show has been a
general subject of disscussion by
both press and public.    Bumptious
boosting may do something to advertise the merits of a fruit-growing
district, but after all there is nothing
like being " there with the goods."
Mr.   F.   R.   E. DeHart, to whose
Energy    and   resourcefulness   the
achievement  is  largely due, sends
us the following list of growers who
contributed the successful fruit:

The above growers also suppled
the fruit for the District Exhibit,
with one or two exceptions. A
box was sent by Mr. Bob White—
the apples were white too, and
much admired by the judges. The
K. L. O. Co.. sent a box of King
David; a very dark red apple, which
excited some curious enquiries as
to their name. Mr. Roy Sweeny
supplied the small Pomme Grise
Russetts, and Mr. T. Murray the
Winesap.
The District Exhibit was afterwards sold to the Central Okanagan
Lands, Ltd., who will show it at
at their offices in Ottawa and
Montreal. The prize car of Jonathans was sold to F. R. Stewart &
Co., Vancouver, at $2.50 a box.
Mr. Tom Hill had the packing
of the fruit for District and two-
two displays as well as rendering
valuable assistance in the selection
and arrangement of the plates.
Miss R. M. Raymer Wins Prizes
The list of Miss R. M. Raymer's
winnings arrived top late to, be included in last week's issue.   They
are as follows:
First Prize of $10 for Unfiavored

First prize  of $10  for Preserved
Apples
Second prize $5 for Pickled Apples
Fourth prize of $10 in Best Display

$62,000 Price of Old
Midway and Vernon
Line.
The board of Valuators appointed to decide upon an equitable sum
for which the Kettle River Valley
Railway company should purchase
the old Midway and Vernon right-
of-way has decided upon a figure
in the neighborhood of $62,000..
The valuators went thoroughly into the acounts of the road and have
notified the Kettle Valley Railway
company of the award. It is stated
on authoritative information that
the amount of the award will be
forthcoming within a few days
time.   t
The valuators hope to  be  in  a
position to make payments in  the
matter of various claims for wages
anq supplies incurred by the  defunct railway company and assumed by the Ketde River Valley road
sometime  between now  and  the
end of the  present  month.    The
claim for labor, and  accounts of
that description so far as they appertain  to  the  ten-mile right-of-way
between Midway and Rock Creek
are likely to be paid in  full.    This
was the portion  of the road  on
which actual construction work had
been  commenced,  and  was   the
only portion,with which the board
of valuators could deal. The other
claims in connection with that portion of the road will,  it is stated,
receive substantial consideration.

The programme, was a long one,
and was carefully selected and well
arranged for variety, the interest
of the audience never lacking to
the finish. The quality of the items
was of an exceptionally high order,
and wasetjual to anything we have
heard in many years, and ih this
the managers are to be congratulated.
Several Kelowna friends contributed towards the programme,
including Mr. and Mrs. ]. N. Thompson, Mr. McKenzie and Mr. F.
Mawhinney.
A unique feature was was the
production of "Susie's" band,
which raised a storm of applause,
an encore being loudly insisted
Upon. It was surprising what music
could be got out of such instruments as tissue paper and a comb,
a tin trumpet, a tin whistle, etc.,

Towards the close, Mr. Whitaker
took the platform and thanked
those who had so well contributed
to the evening's programme, especially mentioning those from Kelowna and Ellison. He also thanked the people for turning out in

that he estimated over $60 would

The amount at the close was
found to be over $80 clear of expenses. Refreshments were provided by the ladies and were

local members and visitors.

minutes of last convention were

An address on " The Progress
of-Missions" was given by Mrs. J.
M. Elliott of Peachland in which
she said, " We cannot dodge the
command 'Go ye into all the world*
for it rests upon us to fulfil it."
A most interesting ana instructive
map talk, on China was given by
Mrs. J.. W. Davidson of Kelowna,
outlining the work in general of
our missionaries in the field. She
urged us to surround these people
and our missionaries there with
our love and prayers.
Cceetings were extended by the
W. C. T. U. and the Baptist Mission
Circle.
After a discussion as to how- we
can help the foreigners of our valley, a resolution was passed that,
" We the auxiliaries of the Okanagan district think upon the needs
of the foreign element of our val-
lev and endeavor to devise some
way of bringing the gospel to
them."
Mrs. D. H: Watson was re-elected District Organizer.
Supper was served in the church
and a social time was spent.
The address of the evening was
given by the Rev. J. P. D. Knok, of
Peachland, taking for his subject
" The relation the church bears to
the great uncivilized unchristianiz-
ed masses.
Solos were rendered by Mrs. J.
L. Elliott of Peachland and Mrs.
Mitchell of Penticton, and also
music by the Peachland choir.
Mrs. J. B. Robinson gave the address of welcome and was replied
to by Mrs. Cox. of Kelowna. A
vote of thanks was tendered the
ladies of Peachland for iheir kind
hospitality and' to all who had

National Apple Show
Financial Result
The First Canadian National
Apple Show is in a better position
financially than it was at first anticipated it would be. In all, the
show cost about $40,000, of which
$12,311.50 was paid in prize money, to which must be added about
$2000 in medals and nursery stock
and $750 in land. Toward the required amount, citizens of Vancouver subscribed approximately
$15,000, the City Council $6000,
Sir Thomas Shaughnessy $1000,
the Great Northern Railway Company $1000 and the Dominion
Government $1000. The sale of
season ticket? and concession
privileges realized $ 1000, and gate
receipts $10,062.15. In all this
amounted to $35,062.15. The
final wind-up of die accounts of
the show, wilbpossibly change these
totals slightly, but they are substantially correct.
Altogether 20,429 persons paid
admission at the turnstiles, of which
a portion were children, who were
admitted at half rates. The daily
takings were: Monday, $ 19^4.25 ;
Tuesday, $571.75 ; Wednesday,
$1373.50; Thursday. $2270.50;
Friday, 2552.15 ; Saturday, $1350.
The management of the show
anticipates that thp finances of the
enterprise will be wound up as
successfully as have been its general
affairs from an exhibition standpoint. Assistance is expected from
come citizens who have qjot yet
subscribed to the funds qf the
undertaking, while it is expected
that the Provincial Government, the
Grand Trunk Railway Company
and the Canadian Northern" Railway Company will also give
grants.

SUMMERLAND
A real estate deal comprising the

many more such deals will soon be

The C. P. R. moved their offices
from the old wharf to the new on
Monday evening. Henceforth the
Okanagan will call there.
Summerland will this year witness its first Winter Poultry Show
The local Association is already

were herded across country from
Keremeos to Penticton.
The Grey Canal Hearing
Completion
L^st week the water flowed
freely through the big syphon
across the head of Swan Lake on
the White Valley Irrigation Company's system in the Vernon district. This maiks the successful
completion of another section of
this undertaking, the water now
flowing through the big pipe at the
rate of 600 cubic feet per minute
to rest in Goose Lake. This lake
forms a storage reservoir for the
west side of the valley, and has a
capacity of 400 acre-feet. The
work now remaining to be done
to complete the Grey Canal to its
outlet at Okanagan Landing is
small and comprises no difficult or
unusual features. As soon as the
land is required for settlement the
water will be available.
The large syphon just so successfully installed is eleven thousand
feet long, twenty-two inches in
diameter, and for several thousand
feet of its length sustains a pressure
when working of 200 lbs. to the
square inch. These three features
taken together constitute a record
for wooden pipe.
Martin Burrell Praises
Kelowna's Prize Car
Mr. Martin Burrell, M. P., in a
letter to the Province anent the
great apple show says: " It was
most gratifying to note the excellence, not only of the fruit, but
of the packing from the various
fruit-growing districts. Every fruit
grower in British Columbia must
have been proud of that splendid
car of Jonathans from Kelowna.
The magnificent uniformity of the
600 cases was what especially appealed to the practical grower who
alone knows what skilled care and
infinite patience such a result
implied."

An important step in the progress of the Canadian people was
marked last Thursday by the taking

Esquimalt naval yard. The historic
ceremony was marred by a downpour of rain. The deputy minister

have the guards from H. M. S.

the flagpole on Duntze head where
the Union Jack of the Admiralty
flew. The guards, 34 men from

noon a bluejacket of H. M. S.
Shearwater had let - down the
Admiralty's flag, while the guards
presented arrns, the bugles blew

Then a bluejacket of the Rainbow
hauled up another Union Jack—the
flag of Canada, while the guards
presented arms again, the bugles
flared and officers saluted again.

-* Lord Strathcona. Canadian high
commissioner in London has donated an additional $600,000 to
the Strathcona trust fund for the encouragement of physical training
and elementry military drill in the
ublic schools of Cauada. Lord
Strathcona last year gave $300,000
to establish the fund, which now
gives an annual income of $20,000
to the Dominion in charge.
Says the v VaAco.uver World :
" Conspicuous in the great Canadian National Apple Show now being ;held in the Horse Show- build"
ing' is the exhibit from Kelowna,
in the fertile Okanagan Valley, the
garden of British Columbia. The
chief of all the prizes offered was
one of a thousand dollars for the
B^stxar load of apples' exhibited,
'and'this prize was won by Kel-1
owna, which, under the aegis ofj
the Board of Trade of the Okanagan town, had an entry on exhibition which was declared by the
judges ta be the most magnificent
carload they had ever seen on exhibition anywhere. The apples are
of the variety known as Jonathan,
and it is safe to say that the display
has never been equalled in any part
of ihe world;-~
While doing -some- excavation
work on his farm at Oyama last
week, F. Rayburn made a rather
gruesome discovery. He unearthed
the skeleton of an Indian which
had evidently been buried for
many years^ Along with the bones
were found about 40 elks' teeth,
rather discolored but otherwise in
a good state of preservation.

The rarest treat that Los Angelians have
had an opportunity to witness for several
months was that of having the Williams'
Jubilee Singer* in their midst. They Sang
at Simpson,* Auditorium, Monday and
Tuesday evenings of this week, to large
and appreciative audiences. The entertainment deserves to be reccomended a* one
af the greatest before the public to-day.
Eacn singer is an artist, being posoesed
with refinement and style, perfect sweetness of voice from top to bottom, intelligence in phrase and naUnce, and acquaintance with the correct manner of delivering
music of all kinds. They are, in fact, all
that excelence in melody and harmony
could demand.
