The matter was referred to the
local health officer to report.
A letter was also read from the
Union of Canadian Municipalities,
asking for the support and co-
: operation of the council- and a
membership fee bf ten dollars ($ 10)
foi the year. The letter also suggested that delegates be sent to a
convention to be held in Toronto.
The communication was laid on
the table.
Mr. J, B. Whitehead, proprietor
of the Pool Room attended and
made a vigorous protest against
the provisions of By-law 86, which
was introduced at the last meeting for the purpose of "regulating
pCol and billiard rooms within the
city." Mr. Whitehead said he regarded the by-law as a personal
attack upon himself. There was
only one pool and billiard room in
the city and that was his own, and
and therefore the by-law was aimed
at no one but himself. He thought
the council might have made some
enquiries as to how his place was
conducted before bringing in a
drastic measure of this kind. His
character, he declared hotly, was
well known to most people, and
he did not think they could find
anything against that. Some time
ago, in response to a request from
the local clergy and others he had
established a library in" connection with that iniquitous place
called a "pool room." Only last
week at a meeting of the church
members he had been elected sidesman of his church, all of which
went to show that he was held in
some kind of respect by his fellow
citizens. The. natural inference
which people would draw from
the present attack was that there
was something wrong with the
pool room, or that he was not a fit
person to run it when special bylaw was required to regulate it.
He was utterly unable to fathom
the reason for the by-law. It had
come upon him and his friends
like a bolt frpm the blue. If any
complaints had been lodged ag-
.ainst him by any persons, he would
like to.know their names, to that
he could answer them. Even if a
few people prejudiced against the
game, had laid complaints, the
council was hot there to legislate
on behalf of one or two, and in
doing so take away half his -business. They were there to represent the majority of the citizens.
When he came into the town
the pool room had been und^rl a
cloud, but since he had takei£j it
over he had madfe it his constant
endeavor to lift it out of the mire
and put it on a respectable basis,
and he deserved some (credit for
what he had done. Everything of
an objectional nature had been removed, and at the present time the
pool room was a place which could
be visited by anyone. Some of the
most influential men in the town
made use of his place.
It seemed to. him that back of
of some people's minds there was
a strong prejudice against the game
itself, and a feeling that a pool
room was essentially different from
any other business. This was not
so. His business was exactly on
the same basis as any hardware or
grocery store.
He objected in the first place to
the clause in the by-law respecting
the hour of closing. His chief
source of ihMifie^'^eTfrdm^ those
who used the tables at night, and
if he had to close at eleven o'clock
a large part of hia best business
would be taken away from him.
As to having dice and slot machines
that was a matter of Provincial law
and applied equally well to hardware and grocery stores, and.did
not require any by-law to make
provision against it.
Another monstrous clause was
that which stated that no persons
under 18 years of age must be on
the premises either to watch or
take part in the games. Since he
had had the pool room he had
started a library and reading room ;
he also supplied tea and coffee.
Ladies came to his place and never
found anything objectionable or
offensive. Pool and billiards was
not the whole of his business. So
far as he knew only three, youths
under 18 had been'to his billiard,
room since he took it oyer. Two
of them had not been near fbr over
two months, and the other for three
months. Were the council going
to seriously injure his business for
the sake of the&e three who had
stopped coming ? Moreover; there
was nothing passed there which
could hurt anyone. He did not
even permit swearing in his place,
which as they knew in Canada was
rather a strict regulation. It was
fit for ladies or anyone else to visit
at any time.
With regard to the clause about
obstructing the view from the sidewalk, continued Mr. Whitehead, he
had, when he took over the place,
found a curtain stretched across
the room. He asked what that
was for, and was told that it Was so
that people could not see in from
the  street.   He  at  once took    it

Martin Burrell
on Reciprocity
Interesting Letter on the Tariff
The sad news of the fatal (termination of Dr. Baker's illness was
.telephoned out to Rutland from
the Kelowna Hospital last Saturday morning, casting a sorrowful
gloom over the whole neighbor-
-haodjA After only fourteen days',
illness, the trouble which was a
recurring bowel complaint, caused
the death of our most useful and
kindly neighbor and friend.
After only two years' residence
in Rutland,' the doctor had endeared himself to everyone in the district, and had a host of friends in
town besides. His kindly, patient,
and unassuming disposition, his
readiness to help in all good work,
will keep his memory green amonst
us for many years to come.
He will be sorely missed. He
was a trustee of the church, sscre-
tary of the quarterly board, bible
class leader, and trustee of the day
school, and intimately bound up
with many other movements.
Born at Littlewood, near London,
iJnt.,M6"yearf figo,"he was the Only
one of his family to come west, his
mother and other relatives still living at or near the old home. Our
sympathies are also with the sorrow
ing ones down there.
Taking his medical course and
degree at the Western University,
London, he went to Ohio, where
he practiced two years. From there
he went to Leduc, Alberta, practicing there for six years, and leaving
for Rutland two years ago.
He was a useful member at
Leduc also, being secretary of the
Methodist Church, and member of
the council. He was also member
of the Masonic order.
Mrs. Baker and the boys were
with him when he passed away,
and he was conscious to the end.
Everything that could be done to
lighten the sorrow of the bereaved
ones was done by sympathetic
friends: The doctor had desired
Mrs. Baker return to Leduc, where
her mother still lives, and to bury
him 1 there. The funeral service
was consequently held at the
church on.Sunday evening, Mrs.
Baker and the boys leaving with
the remains Monday morning. A
number of Rutland friends accompanied them down to the wharfe,
being, met by members of the local
Masonic order.
Quite a number of young people
from Rutland attended the Epworth League meeting in the Methodist church here last Monday
evening, when an interesting discussion on the life of Joseph, was
led by Mrs. K. F. Oxley. The
meeting next Monday will be in
charge of the Missionary committee
Mrs. Adan.s will conduct the meeting, and an interesting programme
is oeing prepared.
The following letter h*as been
received during the week from our
representative at Ottawa:
Editor, Orchard City Record.
Janurary 31, 19 M.
Dear Sir:
The abolition of the fruit duties
comes to us all as the most startling
and painful feature of the Reciprocity proposals recently laid befort:
the House by Mr. Fielding.
I cannot believe that the Government is unaware of the immense
importance of this industry in Canada, or that the ministers did not
know . that very serious injuries
must result by the removal of the
duties on U. S. fruit, for these
things have been pointed out to
them on • many occasions. I am
therefore driven to the concision
that free fruit was insisted on by
President Taft as a quid pro quo
for certain other concessions wanted by Canada. That such a step
was absolutely unjusttifiable goes
withou^ saying, and the greatest
indignation has been aroused
through the large fruit-growing
districts of Ontario where the blow
will be a serious one.
It is possible that there may be
an attempt to justify the step on
the grounds that, while the industry in the far West is hurt, that
of the. Maritime.provinces is greatly benefitted. Such, however is
not the case. For early apples
and berries Nova- Scotia may obtain slJEjhJ^v 7 better prices in the
Ne^ter^^llISttrteS^but iKave^re*
ceived a" telegram, this morning
from7 an authoritative, source
stating that the abolition of the
duties is a* matter .of indifference
to the great: apple industry; ofNpva
Scotia a's•'. t_ii£ir7iriarketsi■■'arifi? 41 to*
getherin;England. 7 k:yy, y
In New Brunswick and Prince
Edward Island the- fruit industry
tho' a growing one, is not so extensive. Qyebec does not grow
sufficient to count in the export
market. There remains Ontario
and our province, and in .both
cases, especially our own, the disastrous effect of the proposals is
at once apparent. It is evident
from the . reference in President
Taft's message that a free market
Jn Csnsds.---Ws8 - coveted-~by- both-
the Southern and Pacific Coast
states, and I cannot believe when
the true facts are known that so
grievous an injustice to a national
industry will be allowed to d i s-
figure our fiscal policy.
Ontario growers are organizing
a very large delegation to come
to Ottawa and protest against the
removal of the duties, and I have
been asked to/suggest to British
Columbia the advisability of taking
a similar course.' I might point out,
however, that the Minister has explicitly stated that the scheme must
go through in its entirety, and there
is not the slightest probability of
remedying the matter at the present
stage. As far as the present
Dominion Government is concerned the proposals will undoubtedly
be passed intact through this
Parliament. Some action, however,
either by delegation or otherwise,
which will show to" the Government
the unanimous feeling of the British Columbia fruit-growers as to
this great injustice is highly desirable.
It is not necessary for me to say
that, having the honor to represent
a constituency in which fruit-growing plays so enormously an important part, and also from the
fact that all my personal interests
are wrapped in the fruit industry,
I shall take every possible step to
impress the House and the Government with the baneful and injurious effects whicb must necessarily nV# from such a step as the
one proposed.
It is not likely that the measure
will pass through Parliament for
two or three weeks, and what
action Congress may take is a matter of guess work.    Should the
arrangement be ratified   by  Congress and the U.  S.  Senate  (which
is extremely doubtful)  it  is  open
either to Congress, or to   our  own
Parliament,   to  alter  any  specific
feature   of  the   proposals    which
may seem to work disastrously for
either country.    It is probable that
some such feature will be amended
by the Congress next year, and in
any case  the   overwhelming   representation   of  Canadian   growers
should make it obligatory   on   our
own   Government   to   amend   the
evil in respect to our own industry.
I shall welcome any suggestions
from   Yald-Cariboo    and   Bntibh
Columbia and beg "to   assure   my
own constituents that I shafl   exert
every effort on lh<_ir   bfhcdf   both .

The Kettle Valley railway has
arranged for the purchase of some
50 acres of meadow land in the
block bounded by Fairview road,
Gurnsey road, and the river, and
will build its depot and lay out its
divisional yards there. The station
will not be built on the lakefrontfes
many expected, but in close proximity to the yards. The reason for
this is apparent. Penticton will be
a divisional-^oint-OB-s-through line
and delay and inconvenience
would result if the depot were
erected on the lakefront. The
station will be located where trains
can be quickly handled and change
of engines, etc., easily effected. A
spur line will be constructed to the
new wharf, and a Y will be put in
on the waterfront connecting up
again with the yards.
The site secured by the railway
for its yards is about the best that
•could be procured in town. With
a minimum of labour the land
acquired can be made as level as
a-billiard table, a very important
point where the rapid handling and
making and breaking-up of trains
is concerned.—Penticton Herald.

What Has Dandruff Got To
Do With Baldness?
Vou see the statement every day
thnt the one cause of baldness Is dandruff.    But Is it?
■   True,   dandruff  ofton   precedes   the
departure of the hair.
Jt Is equally true that you know
mon with a shock of hair you can
hardly pull a comb through, who have
curried around a dandruff laden collar
as long as you have known them.
lou have also seen men whose scalp
was kept as clean as a baby's whose
hair was surely departing.
That dandruff talk sounds well and
convinces a food many of U0. but let
us not fool ourselves.
Of course dandruff isn't a good thing
to carry around, but It is only an Indication.
;. The same trouble that causes the
hair to fall out usually causes dandruff, so If you get at the cause and
arrest the loss of hair, you will stop
dandruff too.

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 7 first
cost may be a little-more than some of the cheaper
brands of paint on the market, 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\ gab.,
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 eyery 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, pare 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.

The great man was seated one winter morning many years ago in his
sanctum when a reporter gained admittance. He had. come to tell his chief
of a lamentable occurrence. One of
the paper's nondescript hangers-on, It
seemed, had been overtaken by a blizzard on his way home the night before and. being at the time somewhat
fuddled with liquor, had perished of
cold in a doorway. So far as any ono
knew. he. had neither relatives nor

Origin of the Word Etiquette.
The French word "etiquette" really
means a "label" or "ticket" How,
then, comes It to denote "conventional
forms of ceremony P
It is said that a certain Scottish gardener in charge of .Louis XIV.'b garden at Versailles was very much put
out because the courtiers walked over
his beds. To keep off these trespassers be placed labels or tickets—"etiquettes"—at various epots, with instructions as to the proper paths. At
first the haughty courtiers did not
deign to notice these placards, but a
hint from higher quarters that their
walks in future must be within the
"etiquettes" compelled thetf obedience.

statistics, showing the utter folly of
placing dependence upon so
palpable   an  imposture,   until   the
average man gets tired before he is
fairly started.
It may be very fairly contended

The order which has just b^en
issued from the Provincial Board
of Health enforcing compulsory
vaccination, has raised once more
the old controversy regarding the
efficiency of vaccination in preventing the spread of that dread enemy
of human kind, small pox. There
is something in man's nature which
causes him to rise in bitter anger,
and violent assertion of his independence at the veiy mention of
" compulsion " in any form. But
this outburst, natural though it may
be, must not be taken too seriously.
Very early in life the child is taught
to recognize that in addition to his
personal rights as an individual,
there are certain duties he owes to
himself and to his fellows which
may involve more or less sacrifice,
in a controversy of the present
nature, mere abusive generalities
can hardly be allowed to weigh as
Although the discussion of pros
and   cons  in   a question so highly
technical as that of vaccination  is
beyond the capabilities of the nonmedical   mind,  yet  when   an   individual   13  asked   to   submit   his
apparently  healthy   body   to    in-
noculation with the serum  from a
diseased   cow,   he   promptly asks
" Why ? "    And it is just here  that
his confusion begins, and more he
persists in his endeavours to get to
the   bottom   of   the   matter,    the
greater as a rule does his confusion
become.     The  foremost  medical
men   of  the   day,  he   is  told, are
enthusiastic   advocates  of vaccination.    Volumes have been published in support of the theory, giving
statistics   which   would    seem    to
clear  any   doubt   from   his   mind
once   and   for   all.      Thrn   along
comes the anti-vacoina'ionist, with
statements      from     indisputable
authorities, utterly condemning the
system as useless and  dangerous.
He  draws  vivid   pictures   of, the
tyranny    of   submitting    innocent
the subject, and either takes the
advice of his local doctor, or lets
the whole thing slide.
Knowledge of the bacterial oiigin
of certain diseases has been steadily
growing for the last half century.
The theory once scouted as impossible that many of the ills which
afflict humanity are due to the
presence of minute living organisms
is, of course, now an established
fact. Germs of disease always
present in the atmosphere and in
dust particles find lodgment in the
body, and there under favorable
conditions grow and multiply. Ii
the individual is able to resist them
to force it upon him whether he will
or not. The justice of this has
been recognized in England, where
compulsory vaccination was
modified some years ago to give
any person the right to exemption
upon making a sworn declaration
that he entertained the belief that it
would be prejudicial to his own or
his children's health.
Although, as has been said, not
absolutely infallible, the weight of
expert evidence is abundantly in
favour of vaccination, and with the
improvements in the method of
obtaining and administering the
serum,   much   of   the    danger   of
they die harmlessly ; if not, he con- transmitting other diseases has been

recovering has developed the
power of destroying the germs of
that disease, thus acquiring more

future. Obviously then, the way
to secure immunity or the power
of resisting a disease like small pox
is to have the disease and recover.
But that is too risky—the person
might die. Here comes in vaccination, the hope of which is to
introduce that germ destroying
power into the blood artificially, by
introducing serum from an animal
which has successfully resisted the
disease. In the case of small pox
the serum is taken from a cow or
calf which has been innoculated
with and resisted cow pox, a similar
disease to small pox, thus introduc

Editor Orchard City Record,
Dear Sir:—
In your issue of Feb. 9th, you
published a copy of a prospective
by-law, relating to pool rooms and
billiard halls. The Pool Room in
Kelowna is a clean, respectable
institution, containing the only
social life open to a large number
of men in the town. Why, therefore the council should desire to
put such restrictions upon a
perfectly legitimate business, passes
my comprehension. Many men,
esper.ially during the winter months
use it as a recreation room, for
reading, draughts, chess and social
intercourse, in preference to the
hotel accommodation; on these
grounds alone, the religious element
ought to be thankful to the proprietor.
If a man wants to play a game
of billiards after I I p.m., why
shouldn't he be at liberty to do so ?
During the winter months enforced
idleness many men do not rise till
9 or 10 a.m., and retire correspondingly late, actually looking forward
to the evening hours as the only
interesting part of dull, dreary days,
which absolutely pall on persons
who have already passed ihe
summer months in camps, etc., far
away from any social intercourse.
To these men the Pool room is an
" oasis in the desert." As a -resident of Kelowna 1 think the Pool
room, under its present management, requires no such grandmotherly legislation as that proposed in By-law 86, especially the
portion referring to youths, as they
rarely enter the place, and still
more rarely play billiards or pool
Yours faithfully.

An ordinance was introduced
last week in the Ellensburg, Wash.,
council to place a tax of $25 on
every unmarried man and woman
in the city, pver; 27 years of age.
The city, clerk is to-take a census
of unmarried persons and the tax
list will be made up from this
report. The ordinance was referred
to the judiciary committee with instructions to report back at the'next
meeting. The ordinance provides
that men who shall swear th«tthey
have proposed to three unmarried
arid unbetrothed women arid 'shall
give their names, shall be exempt
from the. tax. and women who have
never received a proposal shall also
be exempt, while those that have
refused a proposal shall be taxed
an additional ten dollars.

A test case brought ^gainst the

regarding the exemption of C. P.
R. lands from taxation -came before the privy council in London
last week, and resulted in a win
for the railway company all along
the line, the case being dismissed
without costs. Their lordships held
that unoccupied , lands were not
taxable until twenty years after the
actual grant of letters patent to the
settler, even should there be a delay for many years on his part; in
taking out these letters patent.
They also held that C. P. R. lands
sold on the instalment plan are
not taxable until all the instalments
are paid. .<.. 7

Headquarters for the Economical Buyer
down. He was going to. run a
straight open business, and those
who wanted to do anything that
they were ashamed of people see-
i ing could stay away. There was
I nothing wrong with the game of
billiards, it was the abuse of it that
was wrong. He hired out billiard
tables as other people hired out
automobiles and horses, and his
business was just on the same
footing. If he had to take the
paint off his windows people would
at once conclude that something
had been going on inside which
should not have done. The bylaw in question was different from
other by-laws in that there was
only one concerned. It would be
an easy matter at any time in the
event of other pool rooms starting
up to introduce a by-law to regulate them, but at preseat there was
no need for it. He regretted that
steps had not been taken to find
out what the present management
was like before attempting to deal
with it. He,, moreover, had it on
good authority that the council
could not pass the by-law, and if
they did he would be within his
rights in ignoring it.
Asked by Aid. Cox if he had
ever had any complaints from
parents about their children fre-
cusnting his place, Mr. Whitehead
replied that except in one case he
never had any such complaints, for
the simple reason that the young
people did not.come. They had
a place of their own somewhere,
where things went on which he
would not allow in his place.
Mayor Sutherland promised that
Mr. Whitehead's remarks would
have their consideration.
An agreement between D. Mills
and the city for scavenger's work
during the year was- read and
Aid. Leckie said that the lineman
at the power house had asked him
if he could not be insured by the
city in the same way as the firemen
were. He held an even more
dangerous situation. The application was laid over for further consideration.
Mayor Sutherland announced
that the Pool Room By-law No.
86, had been submitted to the city
solicitor, but ihe latter had been
away, and therefore no action could
be taken that week.
By-jaw No. 85, to amend the
Electric Light By-law, by abolishing
the meter rent, was read a second
and third time.    "
Aid. Cox asked if the city clerk
had received necessary information
respecting the Fire Limits By-law.
The mayor replied that all information was now in the hands of
the clerk, and the by-law would be
takt-n up at the next meeting, also
the Trade License By-law.
Aid. Cox reminded the council
that something should be done
towards pruning the shade trees on
main street. He noticed that many
of them were being allowed to run
straight up instead of spreading out,
and would very soon be up into
the electric light wires.
Aid. Jones said the Board of
Works had engaged a man to do
the work last fall, and he had
actually started. He had, however,
advised them that owing to the
amount of sap running in the trees
then it would be advisable to leave
them until February. He (Aid.
Jones) had been speaking to the
man about the matter the other
day, and the work was to be done
right away.
Before the meeting adjourned,
Mr. Whitehead again asked for the
names of any who had laid complaints against pool room.
The mayor, however, held that
it would be well first to consult
these people, and ask if they wished their names disclosed.
Mr. Whitehead hoped that  the
council would look well into the
matter, and  not  destroy a man's
living on the complaint of a few.
The meeting then adjourned.
