. A letter was received, from the
secretary of the 'British Columbia
Anti-Tuberculosis Society, stating
.jhat JiT imeetirigYof ".the Court of
Governors of the Society would be
held/p^Feb7l%af the City Hall,
Victoril^vBi d.;raTnd requesting the
council to. nominate an Annual
Governbr-ofcthe Society.
It was decided that.'a grant; of
sixty dollars be paid this year to
the Tranquilte Sanitarium, and that
the* nan\e of Mayor D. W. Sutherland be submitted as Annual
Governor by the council.
A report wa? handed in from
the city constable for the month of
January.and was/ordered filed.
Aid., Jones, as chairman of the
Fire and Light committee,' said that
it had'been' the custom of the
council in the past.to make small
grant* to the Fire Brigade as some
recognition of ^tKelrVfluabie Services ito the • titty.: It had been
suggested that the council, instead
of making a direct grant should
"pay the .premium for a, life and
1 accident insurance policy covering
the twenty - members' of the Fire
Brigade. He thought tKe boys
would greatly appreciate this attention, which was really, a necessary
one, considering the risks they had
to undertake at fires.
Aid: .Jones presented several
-quotations which bach-been obtained by the committee from' the
various insurance' men in town.
The lowest was from Mr. G. A.
Fisher, quoting a.premium of $286
covering on each of the twenty
members a- death payment' of
$ 1,000 and $ 10 per week < in case
of accident or sickness. ■/
A motion was passed accepting
Mr. Fisher's tender.
A petition wis read from seventeen property owners on St. Paul
street requesting the council to
extend the street to Bernard ave.,
and charge the purchase price of
the necessary land against their
property. The street would have
to pass through Mr.' Weddell's
property oh the.njain street.
Aid. Jones said that the matter
had been brought up last year, by
Mr. Middleton. There was, however, some difference in the present
petition, in that the petitioners
asked that the purchase price be
charged against their .lots. The
subscribers to the petition owned
54 lots on the street. ..-
It was mentioned that - Mr.
Weddell was still strenuously opposed to the dividing of h^s property.     "    '.: f ;.',•'■     .  ,
Aid; Leckie mentioned that when
the matter wm up before the coun
cil last year, Mr. Weddell had
shown him a letter from a lawyer
stating that the city could not expropriate the land unless the street
were absolutely necessary to the
city.     .
The following motion was passed : " That legal opinion be procured by Aid. Jones as to the city's
right to expropriate land for street
extensions, and also city's right in
reference to the control of irrigation
water. X
By-law No. 84, empowering the
city to raise a temporary loan to
meet current expenses was re-considered and finally passed.
Aid. Leckie mentioned that now
the city's light plant had been*
placed on a paying basis, he
thought the rent charged on meters
might be dropped.
A motion was accordingly passed that the meter rent- of 25c.
hitherto charged be cancelled from
the beginning of January, 1911.
' :. An amendment to the' Electrical
Light -By-law. was thus; rendered
necessary, and a new by-law. No.
86, was introduced to effect the
amendment. This was given a first
reading..-.',. -' .'"_•■ :." .,• 7^A-A '".'-.
• AibyJaw, No. 8i),.Was alstfcml^ro-
duced to regulate the conduct and
management' of pool ^ rooms and
billiard halls within the city.: The
py-lajw provides that all pool, and
billiard rooms shall be closed all

intention of ..the council to retain

effect . ;.'."'■-•;•.' _ 7.     .77 . ' -."

of the Kelowna Farmers' Exchange,
the school will be conducted in
their packing house. Mr., Zernor,
whose experience in packing has
commended him fp the Department, ' has been secured as
, I expect that in view, of the great
desire for ,y. information • on fruit
packing, the#e schools, a conducted
■hy.' tha'-Pepafftrient with; the cooperation ot the Kelowna Farmers'
Exchange, the "Kelowna Farmers'
Institute and the Peachland' Board
of, Trade,!>will. be 'well attended,
and very valuable to the district,
The fee.is.$3 for- 12 lessons .of
2$ hours, each and the Department
hopes that as"'" far -as possible the
school will be used only by those
either intending to be packers
themselves or who intend; to supervise" packing'next year: • ,

An imFfortaht sale has just been
effected by Mr. D.H.vRatte'nburg,
by which the well-kjftJwn ranch pf
Mr. Frank Mawhinney on the
Vernon Rood changes hands. The
purchaser is Wm. T. Fallis, of
Rpcanvilje, Saskatchewan. It may
be mentioned as significant of the
attractiveness ofthe Kelowna district, that Mr. Fallis has been for
the past three mbnths pn a tour of
inspection of various fruit-growing
districts, including Oregon and
Washington, and' of all he hf»s seen
has given preference to, Kelowna.
The place he has chosen consists
of .twenty-eight acres of fine land.
Only seven acres are planted, two
in prunes, which have born some
remarkable.. crops; and five in
apples which are just commencing
to bear, ■ The price paid is $ 15,000.
Owing to his large farming interests in Saskatchewan, Mr. Fallis will
be unable to take hold.of the place
until next year, Mr. Mawhinney
meanwhile remaining in occupation. It is $he intention of the new
proprietor. to effect seveial inj-
prdvements'i, increasing the space
devoted to orchard to 20 acres,
leaving eight acres' for pasture.

Mr. R. M. Winslow, provincial
horticulturist, and several members
of the Summerland Board were
also present.
The resolutions committee met
early Wednesday morning to consider the various resolutions submitted, and to put them into brief
and practical1 ferm. A
' On the^ meeting being called to
order at 11 o'clock by the president
ith.e minutes of last meeting and the
financial 'statement, for the year
;wrere read .'7ahd .-adopted. The
president and secretary were reelected for another year's service. ,
The following resolutions were
read and passed :-
1 .That the secretary be instructed
to again bring to the attention of
theAPrpvincial Government -that^
in the.opinion' of^this meeting,'additional representation in the local
legislature required more than ever
in the.Okanagan electbrial district.
2. That,: whereas the passenger service between tHe Okanagan
Valley and lake points to the coast
is very unsatisfactory and slow be
it resolved that the secretary write
to the General Paseenger agent at
Vancouver urging the necessity of
alteration and improvment.
> 3.. Thatthe secretary write again
with a renewed .resolution to the
Postal authorities and the C. P. R.
affirming the necessity of placing d
Vail clerk on the s. 8. Okanagan as
urged by the Associated Boards df
Trade last yetfir.
'4. 'That the- matter; of having
the words' "Okanagan Junction,"
inserted In the C. P.~ R. time" taibles
uijider the name "Sicamous," be
again strongly brought to the attention of the C. P, R..
5.' Whereas the express rates
on less than carload lots from the
Okanagan to Calgary is $2.25 pec
hundred; and from Lower Mainland points $2.40Aper'hundred;
from Vancouver Island to the same
point $2.65 per hundred; and,
whereas, tne rate on less than carloads by express to Winnipeg is
$2.90 fronrthe Islands ;'$2.65 from
the Fraser, Okanagan and Kootenay districts; arid, whereas, the
ra» an less than carload lots by
express ftfom Vernon to Vancouver,
is $1.80 ; from Nelson /to similar
points $2:40; and, whereas, all express charges on fruit carried from
the British Columbia producing
districts to markets, are in proportion, and the rate to even less distant points is even higher, be it resolved, that this convention strongly
urge on the Dominion Express Co.
the necessity for a general reduction in the express rates .on less
than carload lots<of fruits and vegetables.   _
6. That the Associated Boards
of Trade of'the Okanagan _ Valley
{which represents at least 60. per
cent, of die fruit industry of B. C.)
at their annual meeting now assembled urge in the strongest manner
upon die "Dominion Government
the absolute necessity of maintaining the present import duty on
fruit.as from the United States. The
The fruit industry in B. C. is in the
infant stage with great possibilites
which has been stated by responsible men will equqljthe lumber industry of the province and at the
f-resent stage requires careful handing and fostering.      There   are
millions of dollars invested in the
fruit industry in the province, more
than in the farm-implement business of Ontario which has been
nursed and protected. By so doing
these factories of Canada are classed in this" line as the leading industries of the world. Without this
protection through their growing
years, these ' magnificent plants
which are now employing thousands would never have existed.
The same applies to the British
Columbia fruit industry in which
the growers have invested many
millions of dollars, besides the very
large investments of capital irrigation systems, running into' millions
of dollars. The necessity of a protection duty .outside the fostering
of a young and promising industry
is the undeniable fact that the
natural market for. B.C., the NdrtK-
West territories, is made the dumping ground for surplus fruits from
the Northwestern States, ' which
already possess a large and fully,
developed fruit industry, and the
pernicious action of consignment
is resorted to on a larg§ scale. It
is well taken that the fruit-growers
are entitled to have.-their." rights'
guarded the same as has been the
case for other enterprises.     ■
Resolutions were also passed
respecting the establishing of road
communication between Vancouver and points ih the Valley ;• the
Government inspection of dams;
the 'opening up of Indian lands;
.the; hi$w€.P.ft rate for. idni^sf
the unreasonable delay in forwarding freight from the Landing:; the

It Was at the Bottom of
a Plot
Copyright. 1910. by American Press
"Goodby, Harold."
"Goodby, Alice." *
Tbese, aud these ulouo. were thi>
parting words beiweeu Harold Hotb
well nnd Alice Sw.ilu, for tb.'lr hearts
were too full to say more. They were
to huve been married within a few
months, but Hot li well bud developod
pulmonary trouble, and it was decided
that he should go west and live au
outdoor life. The prospect he f oro
them was gloomy. Even if Harold
recovered his health the giving up or
prospects be was leaving might fect-p
him ln poverty and necessitate thi'lr
continued separation. He turned uwu.v
and set out for the railway station
Alice watched him till be reached n
bend in the road, when ho turned and
threw ber a kiss. She returned it. and
be passed out of sight. Sad as they
were, they would have been far mon-
so had they known what would hap
pen before tbey should n_.eelaj;aiii.
Thut same day two years lieiKv
found Kothwell financial manager for
Henry Palmer, a rancher, though but
just appointed to the position, itoih
well bad long beeu a sheep herder for
Palmer, nnd tbe out of door life Had
completely cured bim of his ailing
As soon as It was considered safe for
hinrto lend a more confined life I'alai
er, who bad Taken a great fancy to
him and who needed a clerk, put bim
in charge pf the financial part of his
ranching. Then Roth well wrote io
Alice Swain that within another year
he hoped to return for ber and brinti
her back with bim.
The ranch was uot a large one. and
the owner and his clerk were the only
tw.o persons engaged upon it except a
few herders, who were always away'
lu care of tbe flocks. The men be
came very warm friends and were al
most constantly together. One' day
Palmar said to his clerk:
"You know, Harold, tbat I am n
bachelor and have no one in "the world
to leave what belongs to uie. I'm
going to make a will bequeathing this
.rauch and Ihe stock on it to you."
Roth well smiled. "Considering that
you are but ten years older than I and
far stronger, I think I would better
leave my possessions, if I had any, to
you." .,
"Furthermore," Palmer continued
without noticing the comment, "there
are five $1,000 bonds, which will also
be yours. These bonds, together with
some old-family trinkets, I have placed in hiding, and I am going to show
you where they are hidden. They,
too, will go, to you at my death."
He led the way to the attic and
from a recess formed by a corner ih
the roof between two Joists took a tin
box, opened It and showed Itotbwell
-the bonds nnd tlie trinkets referred to.
The latter consisted of a gold watch
bearing the initials H. P. and some
articles of jewelry.
"You are very kind," said Rothweli.
"to make mo your heir; but, as I have
said. 1 don't (liink there is the slightest chance of my ever receiving my inheritance."
"There is a bet I er chance than you
tiilrikAwild tlio other; '"'"'
Kothwell looked at bim Inquiringly,
but received no further confidence.
Palmer replaced the box, and the two
men returned to the lower story. Then
Palmor opened n safe kept on the
premise.!, took out a will, showed
Rothwul! -Hint It was In his favor, put
it back nnd closed tho safe door.
"Why." nsked Kothwell. "don't yon
keep the bonds and the other things
In the safe?"
"1 have a special reason for not
kepplng the bonds there. As to the
winch'nud Jewels. It doesn't rauch
matter whore Ihoy are kept. Borne
day you 'may learn the reason. So
long ns I Ihe I can trust you not to
disturb (lie box In.the garret, and'
after my dwnh what It contains may
be of some bp_io.lt other than for their
Intrinsic value."
"To whom?"
"That will appear at the time."
Tills was'not very satisfactory, but
Hut hwell was obliged to be satisfied
with it.
It was inn » few weeks after this
th.it Uothwoll. having got in some
funds for tho sale of sheep, rode to
tlie town. *oiho dozen miles away, to
deposit the money ln bank. The day
proved nn eventful one. On the way
two masked men spraug upon him
from a wood beside the road and
robbed bim. I.on.rnlng to the ranch,
be round Palmer lying In the living
room of tin- i' ••w with a bullet hole
in his IimI:.
As so-mi a?, tie bad sufficiently re-
eoveirf! from the shock to think he
detenu inil io ride to tho nearest
rnieli. .Tt M messenger nnd send for
the pr.ipcv nuiliorltles to come and
hike lee.nl notion upon the matter.
Within n few hours an officer of the
lew in lived nnd took charge of both
tin. premises and tho body.
Wl.eii r.oMiwcll had told him the
wIki! ■ s.iry of Ids connection with
1'nlm-T. eoiK'ludlug with the statement
dint lie •,.:.« Cnliner's heir, that he
iind stoned for Hie bank Hint day to
(U,n>. it s.niie $l,2i)0, been robbed on
tl.e wny and returned to fiiid his ban-
fifm-tor' '.v..:rdv:,ed, the official looked
at bim curiously. Then ne called a
messenger aud sent htm off posthaste.
When the messenger -returned he
brought the sheriff with him, who.
without a word of explanation, clapped
a pair of hnndeuQ'.s on Itotbwell's
wrists. Tbe prisoner was taken to
town nud lodged in Jail, charged with
the murder of Henry I'nlnier and the
embezzlement of ihc funds he elaimed
he had intended lo put In the bank.
The case was oue of circumstantial
evidence—or, rather, of motive—alone.
It was nssumed Hint Itothwell bud got
behind iu his accounts, hud-embezzled
the amount of which lie claimed he
bad beeu robbed and. fearing that if
detected lie would lose his Inheritance,
had killed the man whose property he
would inherit
This made n strong, case against
him, and there was very little to be
said In his favor No trace of any
one having atiacl.cd Palmer aud no
evidence of Koihwell's story thut he
had been robbed appeared. The court
retained charge of Palmer's property.
but allowed the legatee sufficient
funds to pay n lawyer lo defend him
His attorney did the best in his power
for him, but was unable to establish
his Innocence. The Jury hung for
some time between murder lu the
first and second degree, but finally
brought in a verdict of guilty of the
former. He was sentenced to suffer
the death penalty.
And so it was that Rothweli. having
escaped deuth from tuberculosis, having reached a condition where he
might bring his sweetheart to him as
his wife, was doomed to suffer on the
gallows for a crime he had not committed. There nre not the delays In
punishment for crime In new countries
tbere are where the safeguards against
infringing ou the rights of accused
persons are more strictly enforced.
Rothweli was sentenced to be hanged
a few weeks after his conviction. No
new trial was grunted, no stay of pro
ceedings, and the day of doonr was
near when something happeued.
A young woman stood looking in
through the window of a pawnshop iu
the town where Rothweli was convicted. At the time nn officer of tlie law
dressed In plain clothes wns in the
shop interviewing the pawnbroker
about some stolen goods Hint he had
loaned money ou. The woman eiitereil
the shop nnd produced a wa'toh on
which she asked for a loan The bro
ker inspected the watch nnd at once
caught sight of two letters. "11. <f\.'
on the case.
"Whose Initials nre those?" asked the
Tbe woman said she did uot know
The detective took a hand in question
ing her and. her replies being eonira-
dictory, took her to police hendi|unr
ters. There, after, ninny -surmises,
some one noticed that "fi. P." were
the initials of Henry Palmer, for whose
murder Kothwell was to be hanged in
a few days. The chief of police put
the woman through the "third degree"
process, with the result of a confession
tbat she had murdered Palmer.
Many were inclined to doubt tbat
the. confession was genuine. Had It
not been for the fact that the woman
mad attempted lo borrow money on a
watch with Palmer's Initials on it lit
tie attention would hnve been paid to
ber statement. She claimed to have
been a discarded wife of Palmer's, and
it was for this casting off that she had
killed him. The watch was shown to
Rothweli, nnd he told the police where
he had seen it. Tbls Identified the
woman with Palmer, she was charged
with his murder, und Rothweli was released. Fie asked to see tbe person
who stood in bis place and was taken
to her cell.
What was his amazement to recog-
-iiize Alice Swain.      --    	
Before he had time to betray their
relationship she gave him a look that
put him on his guard. She then spoke
to him as a stranger, telling hint that
if he could get permission to see her
alone she would throw additional light
on tbe murder. Permission was granted, and the two were left alone.
Not daring to embrace each other,
they refrained. Alice talked about the
murder, but, fearful of being overheard, said nothing to reveal tho true
situation. 'Menuwhile,she scratched
on a bit of paper:
This Is a plan to stive you. Luckily you
wrote mo of (he tin box. 1 came, took the
watch and pawned It to vet arrested. Oo
uwuy and 1 will convince them of my Innocence.
It wns agreed between them through
the same medium that Harold should
have a week be'fore Alice revealed
the trick. When the period had expired and he was safe In biding she
called for the lawyer who had defended him and told bim how Rothweli had written her of the Interview
he had had with Palmer and of the
tin box, showing him the letter-how
she had gone to the hiding place,
taken the watch and pawned It, knowing the man who was at the time with
the pawnbroker to be a detective. Tho
attorney soou obtained a dismissal of
the charge against her, and later she
was sot at liberty.
She nt once went to tbe ranch house
and in her future husband's name
claimed for hint his Inheritance. Making a more thorough examination of
the contents of the tin box, she found
a bit of paper on which were written
the following words:
If I am murdered It will be by my old
partner; Jacob Wilcox. When we separated I took some bonds .that ho claimed
belonged lo him. He told me then that
he would have the bonds If he had to kill
me to get them.
Iii time Kothwell came Into his inheritance and married the girl who
had snvep him Ho spent considerable moms trylii'. to "And Wilcox and
brlug him to Justice, but never succeeded. The Knthwcll ranch Is now
one of the largest In that section of
country. ..__..

by the milk-dealer had been pro-'
voked by Burchart-and liberated
the boy.
