Sad Double Drowning Disaster
Sailing Boat Caught in Sudden Squall and Overturned
Disowned and One Rescued With Difficulty
A distressing drowning accident
which resulted in the loss of two
lives and very nearly a third, occui-
red last Wednesday afternoon soon
after one o'clock.
Tom Wardlow, Mark England
and Robert Lloyd, three carpenters
employed by Mr. Raymer, who
had been engaged for some time
past on the building of a house for
Mr. Harry Chaplin on the west side
of the lake, having completed, the
contract Wednesday morning, started to cross over to Kelowna in a
sailing boat. When about the
middle of the lake a sudden squall
sprang up, the boat was capsized,
and the three men were precipitated into the water.
Frank Bastier, who was working
on Dane's place, over-looking the
lake on the west side, heard their
shouts of distress. He at once
hurried down to the brewery, a
short distance away, and he and
W. Dimmock and Oswald Jones
quickly got but the brewery launch,
and hurried to the assistance of the
drowning men..
As they drew near to the overturned boat they could see two
men clinging to her, the third,
Mark England, having already disappeared. They tried for some
time to get near enongh to reach
the unfortunate men, who were
rapidly becoming exhausted, but
the engine stopped and the rough
sea drove tnem back. Again and
')again theyr drew hear, but were
carried awav each tirrie. Finally
Frank Bastier, .with splendid heroism, sprang over the side of the
launch. A few powerful strokes
7enabled him to seize Lloyd,* exhausted, numbed with the cold and
yell-nigh dead. The strong breeze
had lashed the lake into an angry
sea, but bravely' the rescuer held
on and managed to keep afloat
nntil the launch could get alongside,
when Dimmock and Jones pulled
them aboard.
In the meantime the sailboat had
been rolling heavily, and before the
launch could get round again, had
turned completely over, shaking
off Jt the'? desperate hold of the remaining man, and poor Tom
Wardlow sank from sight
For a few"; minutes the launch
hung over the spot on the chance
of his rising to the surface again,
but all to no purpose, then set out
at full speed for Kelowna. Lloyd's
unconscious figure was carried into
the Royal Hotel.
When Dr. Martin, who had been
state. All three, however, managed
to catch hold of the boat, but they
were ^ hampered by their heavy
coats and the heavy rolling of the
craft. He saw Mark England hang
on for about ten minutes, and heard
him complain about the terrible
cold, but he never saw him again.
Tom Wardlow had managed to
divest himself of his overcoat, but
Lloyd could not get his off, or he
says he would have struck out for
shore. The coldness of the water
was paralysing every muscle and
his strength was going fast, when
he heard Wardlow shout: " Hang
on Bob, there's a launch coming ! "
He has no recollection of being
carried ashore.
The. case of Mark England was
particularity sad. He was a bright
young fellow from the Old Country
and leaves a wife and two young
children, one not a year old. He
has a brother in.Kelowna, but his
parents reside in Essex, England.
Tom Wardlow was Mr. Raymer's
foreman. He was unmarried, his
parents and two brothers residing
in Kelowna.
Mr Claude James went out soon
after the accident in Hayman's new
boat and after searching around the
spot brought in the _ overturned
boat. Several searches have since
been made, but it is extremely unlikely that any trace of the bodies
will ever be found.
Meeting of the
City Council
Waterworks By-law Passed
A meeting of the city council was
held Monday last, Mayor Suthei-
land, and Aldermen Leckie, Cox
and Jones being present.
The minutes of the previous
meeting were passed and the following' accounts referred to the
finance committee, to be paid if
found correct."

British Parliament Dissolves
Premier Asquith announced today that parliament will be dissolved Nov. 28 thus insuring a general election before Christmas.
The announcement of the. prime
minister was-a surprise, as many
on both sides were hopeful that a
compromise would be reached.
The premier was defiant when he
addressed the House of Commons
the otKer day.
" It is useless to continue the farce
any longer," he said "To reform
the House of Lords and simultaneously to permit them to retain
the right of veto simply makes the
government a farce. The suggested
compromise has not been in the
interests of the people. The government has a distinct programme
which must be carried out."
summoned   smvccl,
scarcely a sign of life, and for a
long time his efforts seemed useless.
^At length, however,"1 his patience
vas rewarded, and indications of
returning animation became
It was an hour or more before
Lloyd was sufficiently recovered to
be able to sit up in bed and give,
his version of the accident. His
story was pathetic in the extreme.
The three of them had finished
work on Chaplin's house that
morning and were returning to
Kelowna. They had started about
10 o'clock in the morning. The
day was fine but cold, and all three
were well wrapped up with heavy
overcoats. For some time Lloyd,
who is an experienced sailor, used
to the sea all his life, and holding
a master mariner's certificate, had
held the tiller with one hand and
manipulated the sheet with the
other. But his hands, becoming
numbed with the cold he had got
Mark England to relieve him with
the sheet while he still kept to the
steering. When the squall struck
them he shouted to Mark to let go
the sheet, but the line had jambed
in some way and refused to work.
The boat heeled over and half
filled with water, and before he
could get her righted, his companions had rolled or jumped into
the water, and the boat rolling
completely oyer carried him under.
He was under for what seemed a
terrible time, and when he did
come up he was in • pretty bad.
Count Leo Tolstoi, the noted
Russian novelist and social reformer, died on Sunday last at Astap-
ova, Russia. Entering the army
when 23 years old, he served in
the defence of Sevatapol against
the French and the British. He
first came into prominence in literature by some vivid sketches written from Sevastapol.
He was devoted to the interests
of the Russian peasantry, and began early to organize for the uplift
of that much degraded class.
Accurate information is difficult
to get, but advices so far make the
total output of fruit and vegetables
in car lots, in the neighborhood of
930 cars. The CP.R. always estimated about 1200 cars for 1911, and
with the many new orchards now
first coming into bearing, that estimate will likely come far short of
the mark.

Mr. S. T. Elliott attended with a

motion of the council.
A plan submitted by the Aquatic
Association was also aptxpved.
Waterworks By-law No. 80 then
came up for final consideration.
Mayor Sutherland mentioned that
it had been submitted to the city
solicitor and no changes suggested.
A motion was accordingly put
through that the by-law be finally
Mr. Claude James attended with

There was some doubt as to
whether the site in question was

assured that the building could be

approval of the building inspector,

Aid. Jones enquired how many
hydrants had been purchased by
the waterworks committee, and
where they had been placed.
Aid. Leckie said that twelve
hydrants had^been purchased, but
they were not all in position yet.
They were being put wherever it
was considered essentia! and at
distances apart so as to cover most
ground with the hose.
Aid. Jones remarked that the
placing of these hydrants should
now give the town ample fire protection.
Aid. Cox wondered if there was
not some disadvantage in placing
the hydrants so low in the ground.
Aid. Leckie thought that this did
not in any way interfere with their
usefulness. They were smaller
hydrants, costing about half the
price of the first ones and he
believed would do the work
equally well. He said the fire
brigade boys intended testing them
as soon as they were all in position.
He also said that in future the water
cart could be supplied with a short
length of hose for attaching to the
hydrants, thus avoiding the former
method of filling which had not
proved very satisfactory.
Mayor Sutherland said he had to
apologize to the aldermen for not
bringing in the Electric Light bylaw as promised last week. He
had been delayed in the work of
preparation by having contracted
a cold. The by-law, however,
would be ready for next meeting.
The meeting then adjourned
until Monday next, Nov. 28th,
at 8 p.m.

In the speech from the throne
there was a reference to the death

of congratulation upon the prosperity of the country and the
abundance of crops, especially in
Eastern Canada. Allusion was
made also to railway construction
and the necessity of passing the
bank act owing to lapse of bank
charters in June next. Reference
was also made to the fact that two
vessels of the Canadiap navy have
already arrived in Canadian waters,
•and that contracts will be let at an
early date for eleven other vessels,
provided for in the legislation of

Satisfaction was expressed by the
Governor-general that reciprocity

into with the United States Government. The agreement between
Canada and the United States for
the consideration of international
fisheries was noted with great
satisfaction. The finances of Canada were declared in a most satisfactory condition.

The Dominions census will be
taken next summer, probably in
June, will show that British Columbia has at least 300,000 people.
The. cencus of 1901 showed B. C.
population to be 190,000. British
Columbia is at present represented
at the Dominion House of Commons by seven members. The Br-
ritish North America Act provides
that the number of members in the
house may from time to time be
increased by parliament according
to a fixed proportion calculated
from the latest census. The census
of next summer will, according to
arithmetic and the act, give British
Columbia twelve members in the
House of Commons.
The hearing of an enquiry into a
remarkable case of alleged blackmail, arising out of an anonymous
letter sent last Friday to Mr. E. J.
Pettigrew, was commenced before
Magistrate Burne last Wednesday
morning. It reads like a drama
from the moving picture show
translated into real life.
It appears that Mr. Pettigrew,
who a few months ago had his
confectionery store on main street
destroyed by fire, on getting up last
Friday morning, found a letter
pushed under his door. The letter
asserted that the writer had two
friends who were in possession of
certain damaging information as to
the cause of the fire. They were
anxious to go to Australia, but had
not money enough to pay the
passage. He advised Pettigrew to:
place $150 in a bottle in the end
of (the culvert on Pendozi tteet
just south of the bridge. He, the
writer would give the money to
them and thus prevent making any
Mr. Pettigrew, in his statement
said that at first he was inclined tq
treat the matter as a joke, but
finally he showed the letter to
Constable MacRae. The latter regarded the latter as serious, and it
was arranged that a dummy roll of
bills shouldhp put in a sealer and
placed in position as directed.
„j^6n i'6fter-' Fridays midnight,*
Pettigrew was aroused- from his
slumbers by a noise at his door.
He heard smeone shout: " Don't
forget that money!" and then run
away. He went to the door but
could see no one.
The bottle was put into place
Saturday evening, and Bert Johnstone, Joe Cowan and Pettigrew
stationed themselves behind some
trees and awaited developments.
Nothing happened, however, and
they were relieved about half past
seven by Constable MacRae and
Max Jenkins, who got under the
sidewalk, which is supported on
trestles at that point, and close up
to the culvert.
They had not waited long, the
police evidence stated, before they
espied a mysterious figure on the
other side ol the road. The man
crossed the road, came along the
sidewalk, stopped a while, then
commenced to get under the sidewalk by the culvert, reaching forward as if to get the bottle.
"Handsup I " ordered the constable
presenting a revolver.    For answer
No Liberal in tbe
Yale By-election
Mr. Alexander Lucas, of Agassiz,
has been nominated Conservative
candidate for the seat in the Yale
district made vacant by the resignation of Premier McBride, who
was member for both Yale and
Victoria and who has retained the
latter seat.
Nomination day for the vacant
seat has been fixed for November
26, and the election two days later,
on the 28th. At present, however,
it seems extremely unlikely that
any contest will "take place. A
Liberal convention was held last
week at Spencc's Bridge for the
purpose of choosing a candidate,
but-although the various parts of
the riding were well represented
no nomination was made owing to
the various delegates being unable
to come to an agreement.
The delegates to the convention
were divided between Mr. Stuart
Henderson and Mr. John Oliver,
the latter being the former leader
of the Liberal opposition in the
province, who was defeated in his
home constituency of Delta -last
election. Merritt sent a resolution
against contesting the election.
. - Mr. Henderson refused to stand
as candidate unless he was the
unanimous choice of the convention
and,it was not possible to arrive at
the desired unanimity from the facb

Westbank Fruitgrowers
On Friday Nov. 18th inst a meeting was held at the Lakeview Hotel
at West Bank, and was attended by
a large number of the inhabitants
of the west side. The meeting was
called to discuss several important .
questions of interest connected with
the place: The question however,
which occupied the greater part of
the evening was the advisability of
sending a delegate to Victoria to
urge upon the government the nf,
cessity of establishing a water system which would be adequate' for
the requirements of this large and
rapidly growing settlement. It was
proposed that an organization be
formed to handle such questions

was quickly secured and taken to
the lock-up. He gave his name as
Hatch and demanded to know why
he was arrested. He was told that
the charge against him was blackmail. On searching his house the
police found a writing pad, on the
blotter of which were traces apparently corresponding to the letter
sent to Pettigrew.
The accused, G. E. Hatch, a carpenter by trade, stated that he had
been down town Saturday evening after his mail and was return-
home along Pendozi street, reaching the crossing a short distance
from the culvert, when for private
reasons he found it necessary to
return and get under the sidewalk
which at that point was raised well
above the ground. Hardly had he
reached the spot when he found
himself covered with a revolver.
Thinking it was a hold-up of some"
kind, he turned to run, but fell.

when his captor produced a pair

these are, who might be led to change

they were shown that the financial arguments, though not the mo3t important, are
equally against the saloon: One of the
stock arguments commonly employed against the prohibition of the liquor traffic is
the loss of revenue which would entail.

England has spent no less than £ 1,700,000,-

years; an average of £170,000,000 per year.
Of this amount the working classes spent
£IOO,000,OTO, or about a tenth of their
annual income. By far the larger proportion of this high sum went in profit to the

profits are the general restjts of the money
employed th the manufacture of alcoholic
drinks. It has been noted that England,
which spends this £826,000.000 or so on
drink, spends less than £645.000,000, on
bread.butter, cheese and eggs. Less than
£680,000,000 on tea, coffee, cocoa, sugar,
milk, fish, potatoes and all kinds of vegetables and fruits. Less than £729,000.000
on all woolen goods, cotton, linen, boots
and" shoes, furniture end coal for household
uses. With all this expenditure the.^trade'
employs only 211,833 individuals in the
manufacture, sale and distribution of liquor
against 832,181 cotton and wool workers
and 648,944 coal miners. The lose of revenue is a small thing in comparison to ithe
tremendous waste by which thousands are
beggared to enrich a few, not to - mention
the moral ruin of the victims of intempr-
ance, the misery and sorrow which it creates
on every hand and the cost to the nation
of the crime of which it is directly or in-

There was something like a riot
last week outside the municipal
hall at Penticton. The council had
assembled to investigate a complaint lodged againat Constable
Henry Murk on the information of
a man named Welland. He had
been arrested by Murk, but claimed
that the latter had told him that it
waa Reeve Foley Beennett, and not
the constable, who was in reality
apprehending him. It was generally understood that the investigation was to be an open one and a
crowd collected about the municipal
office only to find that the doors
were closed. The crowd dispersed
but a number later returned and
showed their disapproval of the
star chamber proceeding by engaging in a free fight on the streeet
and battering away at the door of
the municipal hall. Constable Murk
was asked to investigate. His appearance on the street was the
signal for a small riot. The Reeve
and councillors rushed out to find
him seated upon one of the disturbers while several others were
dancing about him. To add to the
confusion the arrested man's wife,
alarmed by her husband's cries,
rushed to the scene and promptly
fainted in the arms of one of the
municipal officers. While in this
embarrassing position a bucket of
cold w_.fer was dumped over the
impromptu gallant and the lady
by an excited spectator. Constable
Murk took advantage of the confusion to get away with his prisoner.
The latter, a man named Pringle,
was fined and severely reprimanded by the Stipendary Magistrate.

"Joshua Simpkins"
"Joshua Simpkins," a four act
New England play, will be presented at the Opera House, Wednesday, Nov. 30. The climax of stage
realism, it is asserted, bas -been
reached in the presentation of this
stirring saw-mill scene in " Joshua
Simpkins" and will be presented
in this city by a peculiar mechanical
device, which has never been in-
ttoduced here before. This sawmill scene is claimed to be a vast
improvement over any attempts in
a similar line. The company also
boasts of a splendid orchestra,
which is carried complete by the
organization, to aid in the proper
presentation of the play, which is
said to abound with musical and
dancing specialties of a high order.
To assist " Joshua Simpkins " in
popularity, a band of music is also
carried, and a concert is given
which is said to be far above anything usually heard with a travelling
musical organization. The parade
will leave the theatre at the usual

Jas. Berry the ex-hang;man who
s now "converted" and touring the
country as an evanglist, sued Rev.
Geo. Dymock, of the Blackburn
(England) People's Mission, for
£4 17s 4d for services rendered.
Berry had conducted a weekend
evangelical mission. The terms agreed upon were that he should receive the entire proceeds of the
lecture on his life. During an interval an official handed him about
$50. Berry contended that as the
place accomodated 800 persons,
and charges of 6d and 3d were
made, he was entitled to a larger
sum. The defence was that the
the accomodation was only for 532
persons and that Berry received the
er.lire proceeds.
Despite the removal of fifteen
prisoners from the provincial jail to
Victoria, there are still over 100 in
that place, although accomodation is provided for only 66. A

premier himself also spoke and in
the course of his address outlined
the sessional programmes both for
the Ottawa house as disclosed by
the speech from the throne, and
for the Provincial House as considered by the government. .He criticised Sir Wijfred Laurier's Asiatic
policy, and expressed the firm opinion that the Federal Liberals
were nearing the end of their term

Murk will be called upon th face
the charge of purgerv, which has
been preferred on the information
of W. H. Tapley, formerly proprietor of one of the Penticton hotels.
The charge arose out of circumstances in connection with theinterrup-
tion of a closed door meeting of
the council held last Monday, when
Murk, then constable, performed
one arrest. A summons was later
lodged against Tapley in which it
it was allegedthat he was one of the
disturbers. The case against Tapley
was dismissed and the latter accus-
ee Murk of commiting purgery in
having given certain evidence against him.
1 he perliminary hearing commenced an Friday afternoon, Muni
cipal solicitor Gahan, appearing for
the prosecution and Murk undertaking his own defence. A considerable number of witnesses were
called on both sides. Murk, who
handed in his resignation as constable on Saturday, was admitted to
bail bonds in $600.
