Last Meeting of Old Council
and/First Meeting of New
Special Committee Appointed to Consider Fire Limit By-la-
- Standing Committees Arranged for Year's Work
The last meeting of the old
couscil was held Saturday last, Jan.
14th. The- mayor, Aid. Leckie,
Harvey, Jones, and Cox being present.
The minutes of the last meeting
were first read and confirmed.
A letter was read from the Provincial Board of Health, asking the
City to forward their annual health
report as soon as possible.     7,
A motion was passed accepting
the annual statement as submitted
by the auditor, and ordering that
same be printed in a local paper.
The lease of the site of the
Aquatic Association biiildings was
then taken up.
Aid. Leckie objected to the ambiguity of certain clauses respecting
- the taking over of the buildings by
the city, and after some discussion,
it was decided to return the lease
to the city solicitor to re-draft the
- By-law No. 83 to borrow $7,000
for additions to the power house,
which was voted upon I^st Thursday and received the assent of' a
large majority of the ratepayers,
was re-considered and finally
. The plan which had recently
been prepared of the Cemetery
was also passed.
The by-law to extend the fire
limits came".'up for consideration.
The mayor suggested that some
provision might be made so that
necessary additions and improve-
' metpts might ..be ^madfc. to7 exiting
wooden buildings.- Ht would per-
haps be as well.to make the by-law
alitde more flexible. There were
many dwelling houses included in
the extended area which their
owners might wish to improve at
some time by the addition of a
verandah, etc. It might be a hardship on them if they could not do
Aid. Leckie thought it would not
do to leave too much to the council
in the way of granting permission
for improvements. Some future
council might show discrimination,
granting permission to some business men and refusing it to others.
Mayor Sutherland proposed as
the best plan that a committee be
appointed to go into the whole
qiiestion and re-draft the by-law.
A This was agreed to, and Aid.
Jones and Cox, with Mayor Sutherland'were appointed.
An application was read from
Dr. Knox for permission to place a
long tie-pole in front of his house
to accommodate four horses, or as
an alternative to place'four single
posts. Mr. N. D. McTavish also
applied for one tie-post foi jhe
front of the Central Okanagan
Land Co.'s office.
. Aid. Jones objected to poles
which he considered hideous, and
thought permission only should be
given for separate posts.
Amotion was passed granting
.the necessary permission.
The following motion was passed : " That this council place upon
the minutes its appreciation of the
excellent work done by Aid. Chas.
Harvey on the Board of Works,
and Aid. T. W. Stirling on the
Finance Committee."
Aid. Harvey thanked the council
for their motion. It had been a
pleasure to him at all times to do
the work of the council and to
attend the meetings.
A motion was also passed: "That
we appreciate the fair treatment
accorded to the city council by the
local press in reporting the proceedings bf the different sessions"
The new council held its first
session last Monday evening. The
Mayor, Aid. Leckie, Jones, Copeland and Dalgleish were present,
the only absentee being Aid. Cox.
The newly elected Aid. Dalgleish
and Copeland were welcomed by
their brother aldermen, and assigned places at the table.
The minutes of last meeting were
first read and confirmed.
" Then followed the appointment
of committees to take charge ofthe
various branches of public work
for the year. The following were
agreed upon, the first name in each
case being that of the chairman :
Finance—Aid; Jones, Leckie.
Board of Works—Aid. Dalgleish,
Light and Water—Aid. Leckie,
Health—Aid, Cox, Dalgleish.
Parks—(which was to include
any work connected with the
cemetery, fire protection, buildings,
beautifying.of the city, etc.)—Aid:
Copeland, Cox.
Aid. Jones said he would like to.
mention a matter of some importance to the fire brigade. At the
present time the Chief of the fire
brigade Was not connected with
the telephone service. As he lived
some distance up town, it sometimes happened that when the
alarm of fire was given he did not
hear it. Men engaged in hard toil
during the day generally slept more
soundly than those who merely
had to deal with figures. They all
realized the importance of the chief
being on hand in case of a bad fire.
He spoke of the excellent services
rendered by the fire brigade on
many occasions when but for their
promptness, the fires might have
spread over the town. No one, he
said, inspired the boys better than
a good leader, such as-Max Jenkins
had proved to be, and he thought
they_./ ought to show sprue appreciation of'the chief'by granting
him. this little favour.;..
Aid. Dalgleish agreed that the
boys.deserved-the very greatest
credit, and he had pleasure in
seconding the proposal.
A motion was accordingly passed that a'phone be placed in the
house of Fire Chief Jenkins.
Aid. Leckie referred to .the excellent work Mr. F. Buckland 'was
doing in connection with the fire
brigade. They were now fairly
well organized, with a library and
other advantages, chiefly due to
Mr. Buckland's efforts.  '•*
Aid. Jones also moved that the
salary qf the city clerk be raised to
$120 a month. A? one of last
year's council, he was voicing the
feeling of the whole of the members
in bringing forward this motion.
They could all without exception
bear testimony to the efficient and
courteous manner in which Mr.
Dunn had carried out the duties of
his office. It was of the utmost
importance that they should have
good trustworthy men to conduct
the affairs of the city, and when
they had got one they could not
show their appreciation better than
by giving him a good salary. He
would also like to convey the
thanks of the last year's council to
Mr. Dunn, for the ready assistance
and courtesy he had shewn them.
Mayor Sutherland said that the
last year's council had decided to
raise Mr. Dunn's salary, but thought
it best td leave it until* the new
members met. He agreed with
Aid. Jones as to the good work
which they had had from the clerk
during, the year. He had one
objection to him, he remarked
humorously. He (the mayor) used
to think himself something of an
authority on municipal work, but
Mr. Dunn had him beaten easily.
A motion was accordingly passed
that the clerk's salary be raised to
$120 per month,
Mr. G.- H. Dunn the city, clerk,
said he thanked the' council very
much for the kind sentiments which
they had expressed, and also for
the substantial increase of salary.
He had, he said, in his turn received the utmost consideration at all
times from the council." ■'■■;,:.
Mayor Sutherland spoke on the
work which was before the council.
He said it would be well if the
various committees would get to
work at once without delay. Now
was the time while winter was on
to think out a programme for the
future.   Although, he said, certain
of the Aldermen had been appointed to certain committees it would
be well for each to take an interest
in everything which passed. If
any of them saw anything which
wanted attending to, even though
not in their own department, it
was better that it should be brought
at once before the council so as to
give then a chance to deal with it
without delay. The light and water
committee would no doubt at once'
take up the question of additions
to the powes house. In the matter of streets, too there was much
for the committee to do. There
was considerably more money to
spend tnis year.
Aid. Jones asked if it, would be
well to continue the graveling which
had been going on. Pendozrst.
was how complete as far as Stirling's.
Mayor Sutherland expressed the
view that it might be well tb let
the work stop at, present. Probably the new committee might
wish to make some changes in the
road at that point. It would not;
do to get the gravel laid and then
decide to widen the road.
The matter was eventually referred to the committee.
The question of changing the
hour of meeting of the city council
to Saturday evening was discussed
and it was decided that for the
winter months at least the meetings be held on Saturday evening
at 8 p. m..
The ineeting then adjourned.

The second . session of the
twelfth Legislature of British
Columbia was, opened last Thursday afternoon by his honor Lieutenant Governor-Patterson. There
was the usual ceremony customary
upon such occasions. The governor
was attended by a guard of honor
drawn from the Fifth regiment with
the regimental band. An unfamiliar
feature was the presence for the
first time of officers ofthe Canadian
Navy. A
The proceedings ■ of the day
occupied only a few minutes, and
adjournment was taken immediately after the speech from the
It is expected that the sessiofi
will last about six weeks. There
is a good, deal of public legislation
promised, although none of a
contentious nature. There are also
a number of private bills already
on the order paper with the probability thst--sev©ra»i-more -win uc
introduced within a few days.
The speech from the, throne
contained a fitting tribute to the
memory of the late Capt. Tatlow,
for several years minister of finance
and agriculture.
Several new bills Were mentioned in the speech as coming under
consideration this session. A'bill
to an.end the Coal -Mines Regulation Act, and another to provide
for the inspection of logging camps
and railroad construction camps
are promised.
Another important bit of legislation will be the creation of a
Department of Railways. A bill
will also provide for the consolidation of existing railway acts, with
additional facilities for the incorporation, of railway, companies.
A bill will also be submitted for
the regulation of trust companies.
A boy was born to Mr. and Mrs;
T. E. Clever on Wednesday last,
the little fellow unfortunately only
living a short time. Mrs. Clever's
parents are visiting her, and much

A grand ice carnival is billed to
take place at Haug's rink next
Wednesday. Prizes are offered
for ladies', gent's, boys' and girls'
costumes. The city band will also
be in attendance.
In-connection with the Kelowna
Farmers' Institute the provincial
Department of Agriculture are
holding next Tuesday arid Wednesday, January 24th and 25th, a series
of lectures constituting a "Short
Course" in fruit-growing. The
course consists of nine lectures,
which are to be delivered by undeniable experts in their several
branches, and should prove of
very great interest and educational
value to all engaged in the care
and management. of an orchard.
The subjects cover, as the syllabus
given below will show, a very wide
range of just the kind of information required by the fruit-grower,
from the selection and cultivation
of the soil and the planting out of
the orchard to the successful marketing of the fruit.
In accordance with the policy
recently decided upon by the directors of the Farmers' Institute of
endeavoring to serve the country
districts better by holding meetings
in their midst, the lecture course
will be divided between Kelowna,
Benvoulin, Rutland, the K.L.O.
bench, South Okanagan. This
will enable many who could not
spare time for the long drive into
town Jo attend one or more of the
meetings. The final meeting is to
be held in Kelowna, in Raymer's
small Hall. An important limelight lecture on the selection of the
nursery stock by Mr. M. S. Middle-
ton, and Mr. R. M. Winslow, the
Provincial^Horticulturist*, will deal
witlrther-spcccasful diapbaal-of-ikc-
finished product.
The following is the comprehensive syllabus arranged;:.

Assefnbly of the Province]oi British
Columbia, the petition of7thes undersigned land holders of the
Okanagan Electoral District humbly sheweth: A ...-,.'
"That the existing conditions in
connection with the/control and
distribution of water for irrigation
purposes are far from satisfactory
in certain districts in British Columbia, resulting in excessive waste,
inadequate supply, and inequitable distribution, which often leads
to costly litigation; and that large
tracts of land remain undeveloped
in consequence of the lack of
systemetic conservation ;
" Your petitioners, therefore
herewith earnestly request you to,
introduce and put into effect a
system of Government ownership
and operation of the water supply
for irrigation purposes, by the construction* of reservoirs and distributing systems in this dirtrict."
Although originating locally • as
stated, the project met with enthusiastic support" npt^oniy frbrii
one end of the Okanagan Valley
to the other, but also from other
parts of the province where the
satne difficulties were being experienced. Evidence of this is found
in the following delegation, which
last Thursday waited upon the
premier and members of the cabinet to present the petition:
Colin S. Smith, Kelowna; M.
Hereron, Kelowna; D. McEachern,
Kelowna; H. P. Lee, Vernon; W.
A.Lang, Peachland; A. J. Clarence, Peachland; Mr. Blackwood,
West Bank; Mr. Thompson, Summerland; A.D. Mounsees, Okanagan Centre; A. W. Matthews,
Nicola; A. Janhustor, Nelson; and
Chas. Little, Mara.
The members of the cabinet in
addition to Premier McBride were
the Hon. W. R. Ross, minister of
lands ; the Hon. Thos Taylor, minister of public works i the Hon, W.
J. Bowser, attorney general; and
the Hon. Price Ellison, minister of
finance and agriculture.
The task of introducing the delegation was allotted to W. A. Lang
of Peachland. Mr. C. S. Smith
followed and in an able manner
presented the case of the fruitgrowers. He emphasizdd the difficulties both present and future of
the prevailing system of leaving to
private enterprise the supply of
irrigation water. A much larger
and broader scheme was necessary
to bring into cultivation the thousands of, acres of rich fruit land at
present lying idle in the Okanagan
foam lack of the life-giving water.
jHe pointed out how much better
aj powerful government like that
o'i British Columbia was to cope
v'viththe. great engineering problemsVtrhich would have to be faced.

any definite reply without consultation with his cabinet, he could
promise them that the matter would
receive earnest consideration at
the hands of the government.

laden trees, painfully struggling on
with an injured hip, may be better
imagined than described.
Soon after the accident he fainted
and lay all night where he fell, only
to find his feet badly frozen upon
regaining consciousness. Tuesday,
with greater, difficulty than ever,-
and the storm still blowing, he
struggled on to a pre-emptor's

night in the empty shack, he continued his long tramp next morning, finally reaching Tom Leddy*
place on the K.L.O. Here assistance was secured from town, and
jthe unfortunate fellow placed under the doctors care. We are
glad to report that Charley is pulling through all right, but with the
loss of five toes.

The lecture on the Klondyke
given in connection with the
Young People's Society of Knox
church on Monday night by Rev.
Geo. Pringle, was well attended.
Mr. Pringle, along with his brother.
Dr. John Pringljs, had been Presbyterian missionary for 11 years in
that northern country, and spoke
from personal experience, which
made the subject moire interesting
and informing. The lecture was preceded by a sola from Miss Bullis,
and was brought to a close with a""
vote of thanks to the lecturer Mr.
Pringle returned to Vemon on,
Tuesday morning, where 'he is
supplying the Presbyterian church.
While here he, was the guest of
Mr. R. A. Copeland. The subject,
next Monday at the Y. P. S. will
be " A nicht wi' Bobbie Burns."
The Duke of Connaught has
accepted his^ appointment of
Governor-General of Canada, arid
will probably arrive at Ottawa in

Fruitgrowers Will
Fight Reciprocity
Reduction of Duty Condemned
at Convention - Other Important Discussions
The proposal of the United States
growers that the duty on fruit entering Canada be removed met with
an emphatically hostile reception
at the hands of the B. C Fruitgrowers' Association at the convention held in Victoria last week.
A resolution was passed stating
that the Association was absolutely
against any reduction of the rates,
and asking on the other hand that
the duty on fruit brought into
Canada be raised to equal the
duty imposed by the United States
on fruit going from Canada into
the States.
The Hon. Price Ellison made a
vigorous attack on this idea of
reciprocity. " I hope," he said that
this reciprocity arrangement will
never take .place. If it does we
shall have to go out of the business
of fruitgrowing, and indeed out of
many other businesses. We in
Canada have only a population of
8,000,000. In the United States
there are 105,000,000 people. The
surplus production of that country
would l"e dumped on us. Our
markets would be flooded. Our
industries crowded out. Our prosperity gone. Who is it that is
agitating for reciprocity ? Just a
handful of Manitoba farmers. They
want to get their agricultural implements cheap, but in their desire
they lose sight of the fact that the
industries, which are the life and
the soul of the country, would be
hampered, their vitality eaten into,
and in many cases their very
existence destroyed by the flood of
cheap products, the result of overproduction, which would come in
here from the United States. This
question is not one of politics, but
one which affects Canada as a
whole and British Columbia in
particular. Don't let us make
British Columbia a dumping ground
for American goods. What is
required in our trade arrangements
is a preferential tariff with the
Mother Country, so that we shall
continue to stand side by side with
her and fight her battles as in the
past. There is no sentiment in
the idea of fighting reciprocity. It
is purely a business agitation. We
are responsible for what is going
on ; if we don't make our voices
heard while there is yet time we
will then be responsible for what
happens. We ought to see that
we preserve, not only for ourselves,,
but for our children, that essential
policy which is the making of
Canada today. That is the policy
of protection. If the United States
had been a free trade nation would
she have the population she has
today ? No. Her industries would
be stifled, or still-born, and she
would be the dumping ground of
every other country in the world."
Labour for Fruitgrowers
Another important matter which
came up .for discussion at the
Fruitgrowers' convention was the
question of establishing a labour
bureau for the province.
Th« secretary of the association,
R. M. Winslow, made a statement
of how this matter stood at present.
He said that a committee had been
appointed to wait on the provincial
government on the necessity for
action regarding labour and the
appointment of a labour bureau.
Owing to the absence in the east
of Mr. R. H. Agur, the chairman of
the committee, it had not vet waited
on the government, so there was
nothing to report as to its actions.
Conditions in the fruit industry had
reached such a pitch that either
values would have to go up, or
else the cost of production would
have to come down. In his capacity
of secretary he had been instructed
to find out, if possible, the number
of labourers wanted by the fruit
growers in the province. He had
circularized them all, or as many
as he could get in touch with, and
up to date he had received data
which showed that there was a
demand for nearly 1,300 labourers.
These men could be employed at
current wages during the coming
season, and over half of them could
be employed for eight months of
the season.
. The matter was thoroughly discussed t^nd the proposal heartily
supported. The view expressed
that although men with capital
were continually being sought, as
settler*, the government did not do
all it might to promote the immigra-'
tion of labouring men.
A resolution - was passed unanimously asking the provincial
government to promote immigration from the British Isles and with
this end  iii view  to  establish   a
a bureau of labour, and set aside
receiving farms for the training of
such immigrants. It further recommended that assisted passages
should be advanced by the provincial government.
Express Companies and the
Handling of Fruit.
*The Express service came in for
some strong criticism, both on the
question of rates and on the manner in which the fruit was handled.
Mr. W. A. Pitcairn who attended
from Kelowna alluded to the bad
condition in which cars often arrived to load with shipments of fruit.
It frequently, he stated, took hours
to clean them. At times thev were
dirty, full of rubbish and broken
inside, and the fruitgrowers were
put to the expense of having them
Standardization of Fruit Boxes.
The British Columbia - Fruit
Growers' Association will reccom-
mend the following as the standard
sizes of fruit boxes to the Dominion fruit conference in Ottawa next
December. s
Apple boxes 20 by 11 by 10
inches.       •
Pear boxes 18 1-4 by 11 by 8 1-2
Four basket plum crates, 15 3-4
by 15 3-4 by 4 1-4 inches.
Peach boxes I§ 1-4 by 11 3-4
by 4 1-2 inches.
Crabapple boxes 18 I -4 by 11
by 8 i-4 inches.
The standardization of all boxes
was held to be in the best interests
of the fruit growers, and also of
box manufacturers,' and the statement was made that the province
is greatly in advance of the states
of Washington and Oregon in this
Delegates for Dominion Fruit
The following four delegates
were appointed to attend the
Dominion Fruit Conference to be
held -in Ottawa, probably next December : For Vancouver Island, Mr.
Thomas A. Brydon; For the . Lower Mainland, Mr. Maxwell Smith ;
for the Similkameen, Okanagan
and Thompson districts, Mr. R. H.
Agur ; and for the Kootenays and

Sunday School Teachers'
Association Meetings
The second of a. series of six meetings
ofthe Sunday School Teachers' Association
was held last Wcdnes. week in the Baptist
church under the leadership of Rev. D. J.
Welsh, and was attended by a goodly
number of interested teachers and
others. The subject for discussion was:--
" The Sunday School an Educational Force"
which was opened by an able and instructive address by Rev. Welsh. He began by
referring to the latent capacities of the
child, and he said that we stand for the
development of these. The public school
develops the mental and moral, but the
child's education is no* complete without
the development of the religious capacities.
The speaker dealt with the subject under
four heads:
1. The primary impulse of human
nature is religious 'not religion, but religions.
Everywhere we find some form of religion.
Christianity gives the noblest direction to
this religious impulse. The Sunday
school seeks to capture this primary principle of the child life.
2. Religious education must consider the
whole life. Every possibility and power
should be unfolded. life is to be regarded as a unity, part of the great whole over
.which God is our Father, and it should
be the endeavor of the educator to lead
the child to give right expression to its
power and activities, its religious impulse.
3, Religious education must be on scientific
lines. Reference was made to the public
school system, which has the very best
methods, and these must be kept in mind
by the Sunday school teacher, who is
dealing with the same individual. Hence
the wisdom of a systematic course of training for the teacher. Similar methods should
be applied by the Sunday school teacher
as obtained in the public school.
4. Religious education must legard the
child as the centre of interest, not the truth
taught. The Bible must be used as a
means to an end ; namely, the development
of the powers of heart and mind in the
proper expression of the religious life.
Along what lines should the Sunday
school proceed ?
It should recognize educational facts and
should seek to interpret these to the child
in tlie terms of the spiritual life. Reference was here made to the graded lessons
which are adapted to the child's understanding at the different periods of intellectual development. Then the ideals of
religion should dominate the business and
political activities of life. If up to the time
of entering upon these activities the child
is governed by religious ideas, it is much
easier for him to apply them as he comes
to face the stern realities and problems of
adult life.     ' -
The Sunday school in the religious education of the child should furnish opportunities for him to give expression to the
social relationships of life, such as .friendships, love, unselfishness, helpfulness and
kindness. While this has special reference
to the Sunday school teacher, it also applies
to parents and others who have to do with
the education and training of the children.
The next meeting will  be  held  in  the
Presbyterian Sunday  school hall  on  the
first Wedneshay in February, and the sub-*
ject will be " The Art of Teaching."

A Frilled Lizard.
Living specimens of a strange frilled
•lizard of Australia have been transported to England, where photography
has most convincingly proved the trut b
of the legend that these animals, wbicb
sometimes attain a length of three
feet, are in the habit of running about
erect on their hind legs. The lizards
are furnished with a broad frill, or
collar, round the neck, which lies folded unless the animal is threatened. In
that case it immediately spreads its
frill like a suddenly opened umbrella
to frighten off the enemy. When running on its hind legs, with its long
tail swinging in the air, it presents an
irresistibly ludicrous appearance. There
was a time in the Jurassic age when
this method of locomotion was common among giant reptiles, but now the
chlamydosauros is tbe sole surviving
species of reptiles that assumes an erect
attitude when running*—Chicago Bee
