Meeting of City Council
Pound-keeper Blackwood Reappointed ■'-'■■ Sunday (larpentry
Causes Some Discussion
The city council met as usual last
Saturday evening, the Mayor, Aid.
Leckie, Copeland, Jones, Cox and
Dalgleish attending. The minutes
of the previous meeting having
been adopted, the following accounts were referred to the finance
committee, to be paid if found
S. D. Colquette, 1st engineer, sal....$140.00
H.BIakeborough, 2nd engineer, sal. 100.00
E. Fowler, lineman, sal    85.00
G. Goldsmith, fireman, sal      75.00
Ian MacRae, constable, sal    80.00
D. Mills, scavenger, sal.  150.00
P. T. Dunn, assistant clerk, sal    50.00
G. H. Dunn, clerk's sal. and petty
cash  124.85
GPJR., express on assessment and
tax collectors rolls       1.30
Dr. H. L. A. Keller, rent of council
chamber     15.00
Mr. A J. Jones waited on the
council with a request to have the
lease of the foreshore formerly held
by L. C. Aviss transferred to himself.
Aid. Leckie .stated that he had
been appointed assignee for Mr.
A v i 8 s'    boat-building    business.
' .Tenders had been invited for the
business, and Mr. Jones had tendered and purchased the boat-house,
etc., and now-wished to obtain-the
consent of the council to transfer
the agreement in respect to the
lease of-the foreshore, as Aviss
was not in a" position to transfer
the lease without the consent of
the city.  .    - „ *•
The mayor suggested that the
matter be left for. the consideration
of the committee. He did not
think the council would have any
objection to transferring the lease
to Mr. Jones.'There was merely
'' the question of time. The former
lease had been for a period of 20
■ years, and the council might wish
to alter that'*
., Mir.. Jones was anxious to. know
the council's" intentions ao that he
could proceed .with the erection- of
another building on. piles which
had been driven some time ago.
A - motion was passed that an
agreement be made with Mr. A. J.
Jones, leasing the foreshore (formerly under agreement with L C.
Aviss) for a term of not less than
ten years. This motion was
framed to enable Mr.   Jones   to
-proceed- with his building in the
- meantime if he saw fit
• Aid. Copeland announced that
.he had- made arrangements with
Mr. Cal. Blackwood to .take up the
duties of pound-keeper again, the
council, to hand over to him the
cityV sharejofjJie feesA A jnotion
was accordingly passed re-appointing Mr. Blackwood pound-keeper.
A plan of a subdivision of the
North half of Block 22, Map 202
was submitted by Mr. W. S. Cameron. Some little discussion look
place on the matter, owing to the
tact that a lane marked on the plan
"Hid not continue straight through
to Ethel street, which was contrary
to the council's rule governing such
lanes. It was pointed out, how-
ever, that a house which had been,
built some time stood in the way,
causing the lane to take a turn to
right angle. It was finally decided
tb let the .plan pass as it stood, and
- a motion was put through to that
effect >■ y
TheVcitjrrderk mentioned that
there was an error in the city's map
showing a street named Graham
avenue, which was not a street at
all, but private property. The
clerk was instructed to;, have this
corrected, and also to have included in the map all recent subdivision* which had received the assent
of the council.
Aid.. Dalgleish said that some
time ago mention had been made
of a fire escape for the public
school. He would like to know if
anything was being done in the
matter, ,:' y'-A A'7. .7: '"'■'■ A
The Mayor said that they had at
Ijresent under consideration a by-
aw which would include provision df a fire escape for the school
Aid. Leckie said he had visited
the school recently. There were
two separate entrances which made
the place reasonably safe. Still he
thought there should be some kind
of a fire escape provided.
Aid. Leckie, as chairman of the
light committee recommended that
the salary of the chief engineer be
raised to $150 per month. He
stated that when Mr. Colquette
was engaged he was given $140
on the understanding that this be
increased to $150 at the end of a
year if he had given satisfaction.
He spoke in very appreciative
terms of Mr. Colquette's work during the year, which, he said, had
been eminently satisfactory in every
Jt was generally felt by the other
members of the council that Mr.
Colquette's service had well merited
an increase, and a motion was
accordingly passed giving effect to
the proposal, from the first of
Aid. Cox said he would like to
draw, the attention of the police,
commissioners to the tact that tlie
Chinamen had been at work on
the new laundry building all day
Sunday. He thought the police
should interfere to stop such proceedings. .   .
The mayor said that was the first
intimation the police commissioners
had had that building' had been
going on on Sunday. He was not
sure how far the city had authority
to stop it. -2
An interesting discussion followed on the somewhat delicate subject
of Sunday observance.
Generally, Aid Cox said, there
was a great deal more work done
on Sunday than was creditable to
the town. A good many shacks
had Jbeen built on Sundays, and
the sound of' the hammering and
sawing was • not ■ very pleasant to
hear. v
Aid. Dalgleish thought that if the
city had any jurisdiction> over the
Chinamen this Sunday work
should not be allowed to pass.
It was mentioned, however,- that
it was hard to keep the Chinks
from working on Sunday when
white men spent the day in playing games, etc.
Mayor Sutherland thought that
this town on the whole compared
very favourably in the matter of
Sunday observance with any other
town in the province. Law and
order were observed here particularly well.
""AldrCox said^ that in  the sub
division where he lived five shacks
had gone up during the past year.
All these had been built on Sunday.
It was certainly not a nice thing to
have all this work going on around,
not one Sunday, but every. Sunday.
He was quite sure! that if he had
felt that he had the law behind him,
he would have done his best to
prevent it.
The city clerk was instructed to
ascertain what power the police
commissioners had in the matter.
Aid. Copeland announced that
he had received several tenders for
supplies to the fire brigade. He
had not, however, had time to consider them as yet. As the supplies
were urgently needed, a motion
was -passed empowering the fire
committee to deal with the tenders,
and purchase the necessary supplies.
The city clerk mentioned that if
the city desired to take proceedings
to collect arrears of taxes it was
necessary, according to the 'act,
that the property owners concerned
be notified before the first of March.
The following motion was passed :
" That all owners of assessed
propertyon the city's roll, taxes on
which are two years in arrears or
over, be notified that such'property
will be sold unless arrears are paid
The meeting then adjourned
until Saturday next, March 4th, at
the usual hour.
H.M.S. Pinafore
Packing School Starts
Wednesday Next
The Fruit Packing Schools arranged for the' KeloWna district by
the Department of Agriculture' will
begin ontWedhesdaynext, March
8th, and continue until the 20th.
It is proposed to hold 'two separate classes, one to meet each
morning frofa 9.30 to 12t and the
other in the afternoons from 2 to
4.30. .It is however, the desire of
the instructor, Mr: Zerenor, that all
intending pupils should meet at
the Farmers' Exchange building,
where the classes will be held, at
9 a.m..'on the opening day, when
die hours of meeting can be definitely fixed as most convenient, and
the pupils, divided into classes.
There is still room for one or two
more pupils (male or female), and
these may be enrolled if immediate
application be made to the secretary of the Farmers' Institute, Mr.
John Leathley.
Mr. W. F. Bouvette and Sons are
taking over the Davy Liverv Barn
on Monday next,,and will be glad
to receive the patronage of all the
old customers and promise the
best and most prompt, attention to
all requiring their services.
"H.M.S. Pinafore," given by
the Kelowna Musical and Dramatic
Society on, Monday - and 'Tuesday
evenings of 'this week, although in
some respects not quite up to the
usual high standard attained in the
Society's productions, was yet in
many ways a highly creditable
performance. The scenery, ,from
the brush of Mr. G. Mckie, who
has on previous occasions demonstrated his skill as a scenic artist,
was exceptionally fine. The stage
was arranged to represent the
quarterdeck of the Pinafore, with
a background showing the harbor
of Portsmouth, with the quaint old
city in the distance. The night
effect, -with the reflection of the
moonlight on the gently rippling
water, was exceedingly natural and
clever. The costumes, designed in
part by Madame DeCaqueray,
were striking and effective.
" H. M. S. Pinafore " is not by
any means the least pleasing of the
Gilbert and Sullivan operas, and
some pretty music and catchy songs
are introduced.
The caste included:
The Rt Hon. Sir Joseph Porter, K.C.B.

hi addition to the very "exacting
part which he' took, Mr. Bobbie
Reed acted as stage manager. The
Society 8 own orchestra provided
the music under the conductorship
of Mr. H. Whitehead.
Mr. Spedding,- who has been
visiting for the past week at Vancouver, returned by yesterday's
Mr. A. R. Davy ' is moving out

shop, and will'continue in the same
business at die new stand.

Smoking Concert
The smoking concert and athletic
display promoted by the Kelowna
Athletic Association last Thursday
proved a very, powerful attraction,
every available seat and most of
the standing room at the Opera
House being occupied. The event
was arranged for the purpose of
raising funds to purchase apparatus
for a gymnasium.
Dr. Huycke took the chair, and
in the course of his remarks said
that for some time past the boys
concerned had been practicing
•boxing and wrestling in private
rooms, and it had been felt that it
would be.'-'a good thing to have a
regular gymnasium fitted up for
them. Hence the present entertainment When this decision
was arrived at they had not known
that the Fire Brigade were getting
together money with the same object. They had therefore concluded that it would be better to
join in with them and hand over
the proceeds of the present entertainment to: swell the general fund.
Mr. F. M. Buckland spoke on
behalf ...of the Fire Brigade. He
said the Brigade had already made
considerable' progress towards the
establishing of a gymnasium. All
the donations which had been received by them had been put aside
with • that end in view. They had
secured the use of two rooms in
the old school, and they hoped by
next- fall to equip them with the
necessary apparatus.
'The programme consisted of
boxing exhibitions by J. Levitt* and
W. Scholl; D.Barnes and* AG
Pettman ; 'Bert Johnson and L. B.
Simeon; J.-Levitt and Fisher. A
cbmfc bbzirig event between Stan-
'Ijgjfty^Wright and Sampson excited
a good deal of amusemehb* "A
single stick display between L. C.
Avissiand "R. H.,Parkinson, and a
bout with the foils between J. F.
Burne and Errington afforded yx
little Variety. 7 Perhaps the most
.lnteres^iB-'.'j^yent of all was a
wrestling match between Beecher
and Woods for the best two of
three falls, Beecher getting the best
after a fine exhibition.
Music was provided in the shape
of songs by Mr. D. McFarlane, T.
Hill. A. E. Woods and W. Parker.
The total proceeds amounted to
nearly two hundred dollars.
' A distressing accident occurred
at the sawdust pile at Munson's
Mill Tuesday last, when Lloyd
Macdonald was crushed under a
heavy, fall of ice and sawdust
Whilst under the overhanging pile
shovelling, the hot sun, together
with the scooping out, caused a
sudden fall, burying Lloyd, and
breaking his wagon box. Alphonse
Boulet, who hastened to his assistance, also got badly bruised.
Prizes for Dairymen
At a recent meeting of the B. C.
Dairymen's Association the directors decided to divide the Farm
Dairy Competition which has already been in progress for one
year, into two classes, in order that
a number of our smaller daiiymen
in the province may have a chance
for competing for the cup, medals
and honors and not to be compelled to compete against the larger
dairies of the province, thus! giving
the small man an equal chance
with the large one. In this matter
the directors are making arrangements for a cup, the name of which
will be published later, but one
which will be of equal importance
to that of the larger trophy given
by the Provincial Government.
They are also giving three medals
corresponding with those of ,the
larger dairies.
The division of the Competition
into two lots is as follows :— Those
having five to fifteen cows milking
and the large dairies those  having
over fifteen  cows  milking.   This
division  should  induce  a    larger
nuniber of our dairymen  in   thet
province to compete in  this  competition.   All the expense  that it
requires is that they be a  member
of the B.  C.  Dairymen's  Associa-"
tion and hold themselves open for
two inspections per year, by such.  [
judges as may be appointed by theA
Association. _"'•„<    ^

By a curious coincidence a break
down has occurred in Vernon's
electric light plant from a Very
similar cause to that which put the
Kelowna plant out of business
some eighteen months back. It
appears that water got into the
cylinder in some way, and the
engine was badly crippled in
consequence, It is not known just
how the accident occurred, but it
is stated that the engine lacks an
attachment which would have prevented it.

The Kissing Girl
It is doubtful whether there has visited
Western Canada in many years a musical
comedy of the merit said to be possessed
by "The Kissing Girl" which appears at
the Kelowna Opera House on Monday
March 6th. The piece is by Stanislaus
Sung«, Vincent Bryan and Harryvon Til-
zer, the play being also a production of
the Cort Theatre Co. and its theatre in
in Chicago, where it enjoyed a run of 250
consecutive performances. The cast is a
superb one and is further accentuated by
a chorus of 25, and its own orchestra, Under the leadership of Mr. Whitney Bennington. "The Kissing Girl" is sumptuously mounted with scenery by Thomas
Moses and costumes by Schoultz. It has
the personal care of Messrs. Stange, Bryan
and von Tiber, assisted by Mr. Chas. Jones
who has placed on the stage quite a few,
of Mr. Stange's former operas.
The following shows the caste  of principals :

The Martin-Senour Paint is prepared ready for the brush
and  under ordinary conditions, and for finishing coats
needs no thinning.
It is the best paint that can be made, and while the first
cost may be a little more than some of the/fcheaper
brands of paint on the marlcet, the fact is that it will cost
from 15 to 20 per cent, less to paint an average" size
building with the Martin-Senour paint, than with a
cheap and adulterated paint.
For example:—A building containing 4000 sq. feet will
require 10 gal. Martin-Senour paint (1 gal. covers 400 to
450 sq. feet), at $2 per gal.,—$20. To paint the same
amount of surface with an adulterated paint, covering
300 to 350 square feet per gal., would require 13] gals.,
at $1.75 per gal.,—$23.33. It cost no more to apply the
Martin-Senour paint, and besides it looks better and will
wear twice as long. Any person can apply it by simply
following the directions on each can.
We guarantee every can (except a few dark shades that
cannot be made from pure lead and zinc alone), to be
.100 per cent, pure white lead, pure oxide of zinc, pure
linseed oil, pure colors, and turpentine dryer, and
to be entirely free from adulteration or substitution, and
sold subject to chemical anrlysis.
We wil be pleased to quote our prices on above paint.'

Mr. Alexander Lucus, the new
mevi.ber for the Yale division, during the budget debate in the
House last week made a very
notable speech on some of : the
problems confronting the farmers
of the province.his remarks bearing
very forcibly on the irrigation
question. He urged upon the
government the necessity of taking
hold of the problem, in the interests
of the people.
He proposed this series of
questions as one that might be very
profitably investigated by a royal
commission on agriculture, immigration and land settlement :
1. The best methods of clearing
land and bringing it under profitable cultivation.
2. The best methods of settling
land for the promotion of mutual
convenience, and easy administration of the communities so formed.
3. The best methods of securing
co-operation among settlers in regard to products of dairying, poultry
raising and fruit-growing, and for
the marketing of the same.
4. The best methods of improving facilities of local transportation.
5. The question of better financial facilities for farmers, and the
provision of cold storage and other
modern facilities necessary for the
assistance of agricultural-development. In this__connection he did
not propose that the government
should itself advance moneys to
farmers (although.:this was the
practice in New Zealand and was
working well) but to adopt some
such policy as that prevailing in
Germany, France and other progressive countries. In New Zealand
there was but a minimum of default, on the loans to farmers ; and
it was noticeable that no other industry was in the same position as
agriculture in this Province, in that
all other industries enjoyed the advantage of operating on the credit
system, as the second member for
Vancouver^had so clearly pointed
out in his speech of a few days
6. The conditions affecting the
labour market and an inquiry into
the solution of the problems presented. In this connection the
necessity for additional labour for
the harvesting of the fruit crop was
specially emphasized. It was estimated that the fruit trees now
planted in British Columbia would
demand at least 12,000 men as
pickers and packers when the crop
came to full bearing, and two or
three of the largest sawmills would
be required to supply the boxes for
the product of this industry.- If
ample money were available for
farmers on the long term plan, it
would in a large degree solve this
labour question, and in this connection the fact should never be
lost sight of that the small farmer
is the hope of the country.
7. The effect of reciprocity on
the fruit and other agricultural
products of this province.
8. Immigration, and how best
to promote it with a view to
settling _up - the _ lands, .and ithe
countries from which the supply
of immigrants should be drawn.
9. An inquiry into the desirability of employing companies to
undertake the settlement of lands
upon conditions imposed by the
government, and the nature of
snch conditions.
10. Agricultural education in
Schools, the location of experimental stations, and rural education
11. An inquiry into the quantity
of land close to transportation
facilities that could be made available for cultivation by clearing of
trees and stumps, and by irrigation.
12. ' All other information of a
useful and pertinent character connected with the improvement and
development of the agricultural
industry in British-Columbia.
Mr. Lucus believed that if such
a commission were appointed and
a systematic investigation of these
questions conducted,- information
would be obtained that would be
of the very greatest use to the
Department in regard to the
direction of settlement, and if such
a commission could solve only one
or two or three of these questions,
it would be of the greatest advantage to the future of British

Men who, after starting life without a cent, hove accumulated a fortune, delight ih:iecturing the rising
generation on the way it was done.
Their advice may not be an accurate
description of their own work, but
it is always highly edifying. A short
time ago a well-known Torontonian
who has made * success both financially snd as a philanthropist, was
tendered a dinner by his employes.
When the tin." came for speech-making, he told the young men how to
succeed." He took himself as an ex-
ample. How had he achieved the
position which he now held? He always valued education. The first
dollar he saved,, he put into a book.
That facj, alone was the secret of his
'success in life.     ^
When he sat down, leaving all those
at the table duly odified, his son,'who
had enjoyed th" privileges of the
wealthy, followed with a dashing address in which he referred to the first
speaker. "I am a chip off the old
block." he announced. "I know how'
the govrrnor made good, and so at a
very early age T decided to go and do
likewise. Later on I carried out my-
resolve. The first dollar I got, I put
into ti book. too. and I may. add that

Reciprocity Discussion Waxes Warm
Some Eastern Views of the
Great Question
Montreal, Feb. 2 7.:—It seems no
use trying to get away from it.
Reciprocity dogs our every footstep, stares us in the face when we
get up in the morning and is the
last thing on our tongues or in our
minds when we go to bed. In fact
we are lucky if we don't dream
about it, The papers are full of it,
public bodiea are passing resolutions about.it and our friends pester
us to say what we think about it.
Tiresome as the Naval discussion
was many would welcome it back
if it would rid us of the present
talk, talk, talk.
The somewhat ironical motto :
" All this too will pass away" confronts the visitor to the office of a
famous police official in this city.
It carries very little comfort to the
criminal who stands on the brink
of a long separation frorri societ3'
behind the grated windows of a
penitentiary cell or perchance
stands in the shadow of the gallows
but it spells splendid significance
to the man who is compelled to
listen while the politicians rage and
the party press howls one. way or
the other about the evils or the
benefits which are sure . to follow
in the footsteps of the enactment
now on the. boards.
An Extensive Propaganda
The big interests are well organized and can make their feelings
known in very short order throughout the length and breadth of the
I nd. They are all strongly against
Reciprocity. They have thrown
the full weight of their powerful
orgai izatons into the battle against
the interlational agreement. ;Mon-
*:y is no object and there is very
little doubt that a lavish fund is at
the disposal of those who are making the welkin ring. The vast
majority of the people have no organization and are very little heard
No Signs of Disturbance.
If the industries of the country
re ever in danger the stock market has a'method all its own of

Their addresses were warmly

Florida. The estimated population
on December 31,1908, was 60,283,

last week ahoTFouncrto work" satisfactorily. Consisting as it does
entirely of steel and equipped with
powerful rotary engine and wheel
it is capable of doing the work of
a great number of men in a very
short time. Headed in a show
filled track which had drifted full
during the course of the winter's
storms, the rotary buried its nose
into the snow, chopped it into
powdery, flakes and hurled it fully
forty feet into the air on either side
of the track. A track of some 50
feet or more was thoroughly cleaned out in about 'as many minutes.
Mr. F. T. Griffin, C. P. R. land
commissioner at Winnipeg, states
that within the last two years 20,-
000,000 acres or government lands
have been taken up as homesteads
and pre-emptions. The result is
that the last block of open prairie
lands in the West available for
homestead entry and pre-emption
has now been practically taken up
and future homesteaders will have
to resort to the partially wooded
Jands of the northern and outlying
disificts or will have to purchase
from the railway'^companies and
other holders. This is bound to
mean  a further increase   in   the
Municipal matters at Victoria
are in somewhat of a muddle.
Mayor Morley has been unseated
by Judge Gregory, and the city
council has resigned as a result of
the judgment resigning election
invalid, owing to the voters' list
being improperly made up. The
Provincial Government will- appoint a commission to carry on the
business of the city until anew
election takes place. When the
election -was held last January, B.
J. Perry, who .was a defeated
candidate for alderman, brought
action against the mayor, maintaining that the voters' lists were
not revised according to the
Municipal Clauses Act, and judgment was given against the mayor,
the election being declared invalid.

'Afa'meeting'of'the Irish
mentary party it was decided to
abstain from any participation in
the coronation, ceremonies. A
statement was issued to the effect
that the party greatly regretted that
the time had riot yet come when it
would feel free to join other representatives of the King's subjects
on that great occasion, although
the^cause of Irish liberty was on
the eve of victory. The promise
was. made that when the King
visited Ireland, the people would

In view of danger to the fruit of
British Columbia, caused by the
spread of gypsy moth and the
Mediterranean fruit fly in California,
it has been decided that hereafter
all California and Mexican citrus
fruits, including oranges, lemons,
grape fruit and limes, must be
carefully inspected before being
admitted into British Columbia.
The " glass " coach which was
to have been used by the King at
the coronation, and a barouche
belonging to the Queen, were
totally destroyed by a fire which
took place at the coachbuilding
works of Barker & Co., in Olaf
street, Nottinghill. The coach has
been used by the sovereigns of
England for over 200 years, and,
although its three tons of English
ash hardly accord with the ideas
of modern coachbuilders, it was
recognized as one of the most
beautiful specimens o£ the art in
existence. It had "been deposited
at the works for re-trimming, in
view of the coronation, and in a
very few days the work would
have been finished. Among other
vehicles which were destroyed in
the fire was the state coach of the
Duke of Richmond, the body of
which was also being re-decorated.

at a special meeting advocated the
reciprocity agreement with the
United States. A resolution declaring the treaty'to be a menace
to interprovincial trade and the
commercial independence of Canada was voted down, and an
amendment calling upon the government to postpone action lest
disturbance of present trade conditions interfere with Canadian
prosperity, found' no seconder.

gest man in many ways the west
has produced. He is the owner
of thousands of head of cattle, of
large packing plants at Calgary
and Vancouver/and is an extensive trader in sheep, swine, poultry
butter, eggs and kindred products,
He has been called the Armour of
Canada, and in Western Canada at
least, where he operates something
like seventy six distributing houses
and retail stores, he deserves the
name. Mr. Burns says reciprocity
is "not dangerous." to his business
but he goes further to say that, no
matter what its effect, he would be
in favor of a pact which would
benefit the «>hole country and not
of one which might bring a- few
temporary dollars to a certain class.
Mr. Burns spoke like a patroit and

Britain and Reciprocity
The fear has been expressed   in
many well informed quarters   that,
if this reciprocity agreement  goes'
through  Canada  will  be   cut  off
like an erring son from  England's
Bounty.    English money has been
coming into the country for investment in> hand fuls .lately,  much   to
the advantage   of   the   Dominion.
Should the   agreement   pass  England will draw  her purse strings.
Mr. C. H. Cahan, K. C,   President
of Corporation Agencies   Limi.ed,
Has been in England for the   past
two weeks or more on a  fihancin'
mission for his company,  and   his
leturn is being awaited with  interest  by   the   banking    community
here.    Mr. Cahan says  there  is' a
great deal of talk in London that if
reciprocity goes through it will  be
far more  difficult   for    Canadian
Government    and    municipalities
and other undertakings to procure
financial   assistance   in    England,
but that his own feelings  are  that
so long  as  Canada  maintains  its-
present  prosperous   condition    ii
will not be difficult to find in England purchases of good  Canadian
securities, although it may be necessary, for some time  to come  to
pay higher rates of interest for ou:
borrowed money.    While in   London Mr. Cahan   arranged  for  the
opening of an  office  for Corporation Agencies  in  that  city,  and
made some  valuable connections
for that corporation there, so   that
it will now be in a far better  position to assist in the reorganization,
of the finances of good  Canadian
undertakings, and also to facilitate
the investment of English iqoney
in Canada.
